(l)                                     Adding the following at the end of the first paragraph of Article VIII of the Credit Agreement before the period:

(m)                             Deleting the existing Schedules 2.01, 3.01 and 3.05 attached to the Credit Agreement and inserting Schedules 2.01, 3.01 and 3.05, respectively. attached hereto in lieu thereof.

4.                                     Representations and Warranties.  In order to induce the Lenders to enter into this Amendment, each Loan Party represents and warrants to the Administrative Agent and Lenders as follows:

(b)                             This Amendment has been duly executed and delivered by each Loan Party and constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligations of such Loan Party enforceable against such Loan Party in accordance with its terms, subject to effect of any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws affecting creditors’ rights generally and subject to the effect of general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law).

 

(c)                                  The Subsidiary Guarantors party hereto are the only Persons that are required to be a party to the Subsidiary Guarantee Agreement pursuant to the terms of the Credit Agreement.

 

5.                                     Consent of the Subsidiary Guarantors.  Each of the Subsidiary Guarantors hereby consents, acknowledges and agrees to the amendments set forth herein and hereby confirms and ratifies in all respects the Subsidiary Guarantee Agreement (including without limitation the continuation of such Subsidiary Guarantor’s payment and performance obligations thereunder upon and after the effectiveness of this Amendment and the amendments contemplated hereby) and the enforceability of the Subsidiary Guarantee Agreement against such Subsidiary Guarantor in accordance with its terms, subject to effect of any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws affecting creditors’

 

8



 

rights generally and subject to the effect of general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law).

 

6.                                     Entire Agreement.  This Amendment, together with the Loan Documents (collectively, the “Relevant Documents”), sets forth the entire understanding and agreement of the parties hereto in relation to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any prior negotiations and agreements among the parties relating to such subject matter.  No promise, condition, representation or warranty, express or implied, not set forth in the Relevant Documents shall bind any party hereto, and no such party has relied on any such promise, condition, representation or warranty.  Each of the parties hereto acknowledges that, except as otherwise expressly stated in the Relevant Documents, no representations, warranties or commitments, express or implied, have been made by any party to any other party in relation to the subject matter hereof or thereof.  None of the terms or conditions of this Amendment may be changed, modified, waived or canceled orally or otherwise, except in writing and in accordance with Section 11.02 of the Credit Agreement.

 

7.                                     Full Force and Effect of Credit Agreement.  Except as hereby specifically amended, modified or supplemented, the Credit Agreement is hereby confirmed and ratified in all respects and shall be and remain in full force and effect according to its terms.  The execution, delivery and effectiveness of this Amendment shall not, except as expressly provided herein, operate as a waiver of any right, power or remedy of any Lender or the Administrative Agent under any of the Loan Documents, nor constitute a waiver of any provision of any of the Loan Documents.  On and after the effectiveness of this Amendment, this Amendment shall for all purposes constitute a Loan Document.

 

8.                                     Counterparts and Effectiveness.  This Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts and by the different parties on separate counterparts and each such counterpart shall be deemed to be an original, but all such counterparts shall together constitute but one and the same Amendment.  Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Amendment by telecopy or electronic delivery (including by .pdf) shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Amendment.

 

9.                                     Governing Law; Severability.  THIS AMENDMENT SHALL BE A CONTRACT MADE UNDER AND GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICT OF LAWS PRINCIPLES.  ALL OBLIGATIONS OF THE LOAN PARTIES AND THE RIGHTS OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT, THE ISSUING BANK AND THE LENDERS EXPRESSED HEREIN SHALL BE IN ADDITION TO AND NOT IN LIMITATION OF THOSE PROVIDED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  WHENEVER POSSIBLE EACH PROVISION OF THIS AMENDMENT SHALL BE INTERPRETED IN SUCH MANNER AS TO BE EFFECTIVE AND VALID UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, BUT IF ANY PROVISION OF THIS AMENDMENT SHALL BE PROHIBITED BY OR INVALID UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, SUCH PROVISION SHALL BE INEFFECTIVE TO THE EXTENT OF SUCH PROHIBITION OR INVALIDITY, WITHOUT INVALIDATING THE REMAINDER OF SUCH PROVISION OR THE REMAINING PROVISIONS OF THIS AMENDMENT.
