Nothing in this SECTION 4.04 shall be interpreted as excusing any Grantor from the performance of any covenants or other promises of any Grantor with respect to taxes, assessments, charges, fees, Liens, security interests or other encumbrances and maintenance as set forth herein or in the other Loan Documents.

The Collateral Agent shall from time to time, at the request and expense of such Grantor, promptly make such arrangements with such Grantor as are in the Collateral Agent’s reasonable judgment necessary so that such Grantor may make any drawing to which such Grantor is entitled under such letter of credit, without impairment of the Collateral Agent’s perfected security interest in such Grantor’s rights to proceeds of such letter of credit or in the actual proceeds of such drawing. At the Collateral Agent’s request, such Grantor shall, for any letter of credit now or hereafter issued in favor of such Grantor as beneficiary, execute and deliver to the issuer and any confirmer of such letter of credit an assignment of proceeds form, in favor of the Collateral Agent and reasonably satisfactory to the Collateral Agent and such issuer or (as the case may be) such confirmer, requiring the proceeds of any drawing under such letter of credit to be paid directly to the Collateral Agent after the occurrence and during the continuance of any Cash Dominion Event.

Each Grantor irrevocably makes, constitutes and appoints the Collateral Agent (and all officers, employees or agents designated by the Collateral Agent) as such Grantor’s true and lawful agent and attorney-in-fact, and in such capacity the Collateral Agent shall have the right, with power of substitution for each Grantor and in each Grantor’s name or otherwise, for the use and benefit of the Collateral Agent and the other Secured Parties, (a) at any time, whether or not a Default or Event of Default has occurred, to take actions required to be taken by the Grantors under SECTION 2.01 of this Agreement, (b) after the occurrence and during the continuance of a Cash Dominion Event or as otherwise permitted under the Credit Agreement, (i) to take actions required to be taken by the Grantors under SECTION 5.01 of this Agreement; and (ii) to receive, endorse, assign and/or deliver any and all notes, acceptances, checks, drafts, money orders or other evidences of payment relating to the Collateral or any part thereof; and (c) after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default or as otherwise permitted under the Credit Agreement, (i) to demand, collect, receive payment of, give receipt for and give discharges and releases of all or any of the Collateral; (ii) to sign the name of any Grantor on any invoices, schedules of Collateral, freight or express receipts, or bills of lading storage receipts, warehouse receipts or other documents of title relating to any of the Collateral; (iii) to sign the name of any Grantor on any notice to such Grantor’s Account Debtors; (iv) to sign the name of any Grantor on any proof of claim in bankruptcy against Account Debtors, and on notices of lien, claims of mechanic’s liens, or assignments or releases of mechanic’s liens securing the Accounts; (v) to sign change of address

 

-13-


forms to change the address to which each Grantor’s mail is to be sent to such address as the Collateral Agent shall designate; (vi) to receive and open each Grantor’s mail, remove any Proceeds of Collateral therefrom and turn over the balance of such mail either to the Lead Borrower or to any trustee in bankruptcy or receiver of a Grantor, or other legal representative of a Grantor whom the Collateral Agent reasonably determines to be the appropriate person to whom to so turn over such mail; (vii) to commence and prosecute any and all suits, actions or proceedings at law or in equity in any court of competent jurisdiction to collect or otherwise realize on all or any of the Collateral or to enforce any rights in respect of any Collateral; (viii) to settle, compromise, compound, adjust or defend any actions, suits or proceedings relating to all or any of the Collateral; (ix) to take all such action as may be reasonably necessary to obtain the payment of any letter of credit and/or banker’s acceptance of which any Grantor is a beneficiary; (x) to repair, manufacture, assemble, complete, package, deliver, alter or supply goods, if any, necessary to fulfill in whole or in part the purchase order of any customer of any Grantor; (xi) to use, license or transfer any or all General Intangibles of any Grantor, subject to those restrictions to which such Grantor is subject under Applicable Law and by contract; and (xii) to use, sell, assign, transfer, pledge, make any agreement with respect to or otherwise deal with all or any of the Collateral, and to do all other acts and things reasonably necessary to carry out the purposes of this Agreement, as fully and completely as though the Collateral Agent was the absolute owner of the Collateral for all purposes; provided, however, that nothing herein contained shall be construed as requiring or obligating the Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party to make any commitment or to make any inquiry as to the nature or sufficiency of any payment received by the Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party, or to present or file any claim or notice. It is understood and agreed that the appointment of the Collateral Agent as the agent and attorney-in-fact of the Grantors for the purposes set forth above is coupled with an interest and is irrevocable. The appointment of the Collateral Agent as the agent and attorney-in-fact of the Grantors for the purposes set forth above shall terminate when (a) the Commitments have expired or been terminated, (b) the principal of and interest on each Revolving Credit Loan and all fees and other Secured Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations as to which no claims have been asserted) shall have been paid in full, (c) all Letters of Credit have expired or terminated or been cash collateralized or backstopped by a latter of credit reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Banks to the extent provided in the Credit Agreement, and (d) all Letter of Credit Disbursements have been reimbursed.

SECTION 5.03 No Obligation to Act. The Collateral Agent shall not be obligated to do any of the acts or to exercise any of the powers authorized by SECTION 5.02, but if the Collateral Agent elects to do any such act or to exercise any of such powers, it shall not be accountable for more than it actually receives as a result of such exercise of power, and shall not be responsible to any Grantor for any act or omission to act except for any act or omission to act as to which there is a final determination made in a judicial proceeding (in which proceeding the Collateral Agent has had an opportunity to be heard) which determination includes a specific finding that the subject act or omission to act constitutes gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct. The provisions of SECTION 5.02 shall in no event relieve any Grantor of any of its obligations hereunder or under any other Loan Document with respect to the Collateral or any

 

-14-


part thereof or impose any obligation on the Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party to proceed in any particular manner with respect to the Collateral or any part thereof, or in any way limit the exercise by the Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party of any other or further right which it may have on the date of this Agreement or hereafter, whether hereunder, under any other Loan Document, by Applicable Law or otherwise.

ARTICLE 6

Remedies

SECTION 6.01 Remedies upon Default. After the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, it is agreed that the Collateral Agent shall have in any jurisdiction in which enforcement hereof is sought, in addition to all other rights and remedies, the rights and remedies of a secured party under the UCC or other Applicable Law. The rights and remedies of the Collateral Agent after the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default shall include, without limitation, the right to take any or all of the following actions at the same or different times:

(a) With respect to any Collateral consisting of Accounts, General Intangibles (including Payment Intangibles), Letter-of-Credit Rights, Instruments, Chattel Paper, Documents, and Investment Property, the Collateral Agent may collect the Collateral with or without the taking of possession of any of the Collateral.

(b) With respect to any Collateral consisting of Accounts, the Collateral Agent may: (i) demand, collect and receive any amounts relating thereto, as the Collateral Agent may determine; (ii) commence and prosecute any actions in any court for the purposes of collecting any such Accounts and enforcing any other rights in respect thereof; (iii) defend, settle or compromise any action brought and, in connection therewith, give such discharges or releases as the Collateral Agent may reasonably deem appropriate; (iv) without limiting the Collateral Agent’s rights set forth in SECTION 5.02 hereof, receive, open and dispose of mail addressed to any Grantor and endorse checks, notes, drafts, acceptances, money orders, bills of lading, warehouse receipts or other instruments or documents evidencing payment, shipment or storage of the goods giving rise to such Accounts or securing or relating to such Accounts, on behalf of and in the name of such Grantor; and (v) sell, assign, transfer, make any agreement in respect of, or otherwise deal with or exercise rights in respect of, any such Accounts or the goods or services which have given rise thereto, as fully and completely as though the Collateral Agent was the absolute owner thereof for all purposes.

(c) With respect to any Collateral consisting of Investment Property, the Collateral Agent may: (i) exercise all rights of any Grantor with respect thereto, including without limitation, the right to exercise all voting and corporate rights at any meeting of the shareholders of the Issuer of any Investment Property and to exercise any and all rights of conversion, exchange, subscription or any other rights, privileges or options

 

-15-


pertaining to any Investment Property as if the Collateral Agent was the absolute owner thereof, including the right to exchange, at its discretion, any and all of any Investment Property upon the merger, consolidation, reorganization, recapitalization or other readjustment of the Issuer thereof, all without liability except to account for property actually received as provided in SECTION 5.03 hereof; (ii) transfer such Collateral at any time to itself, or to its nominee, and receive the income thereon and hold the same as Collateral hereunder or apply it to the Secured Obligations; and (iii) demand, sue for, collect or make any compromise or settlement it deems desirable. The Grantors recognize that (a) the Collateral Agent may be unable to effect a public sale of all or a part of the Investment Property by reason of certain prohibitions contained in the Securities Act of 1933, 15 U.S.C. §77, (as amended and in effect, the “Securities Act”) or the Securities laws of various states (the “Blue Sky Laws”), but may be compelled to resort to one or more private sales to a restricted group of purchasers who will be obliged to agree, among other things, to acquire the Investment Property for their own account, for investment and not with a view to the distribution or resale thereof, (b) that private sales so made may be at prices and upon other terms less favorable to the seller than if the Investment Property were sold at public sales, (c) that neither the Collateral Agent nor any other Secured Party has any obligation to delay sale of any of the Investment Property for the period of time necessary to permit the Investment Property to be registered for public sale under the Securities Act or the Blue Sky Laws, and (d) that private sales made under the foregoing circumstances shall be deemed to have been made in a commercially reasonable manner. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no Grantor shall be required to register, or cause the registration of, any Investment Property under the Securities Act or any Blue Sky Laws.

(d) With respect to any Collateral consisting of Inventory, Goods, and Equipment, the Collateral Agent may conduct one or more going out of business sales, in the Collateral Agent’s own right or by one or more agents and contractors. Such sale(s) may be conducted upon any premises owned, leased, or occupied by any Grantor. The Collateral Agent and any such agent or contractor, in conjunction with any such sale, may augment the Inventory with other goods (all of which other goods shall remain the sole property of the Collateral Agent or such agent or contractor). Any amounts realized from the sale of such goods which constitute augmentations to the Inventory (net of an allocable share of the costs and expenses incurred in their disposition) shall be the sole property of the Collateral Agent or such agent or contractor and neither any Grantor nor any Person claiming under or in right of any Grantor shall have any interest therein. Each purchaser at any such going out of business sale shall hold the property sold absolutely, free from any claim or right on the part of any Grantor.

(e) With or without legal process and with or without prior notice or demand for performance, the Collateral Agent may enter upon, occupy, and use any premises owned or occupied by each Grantor, and may exclude the Grantors from such premises or portion thereof as may have been so entered upon, occupied, or used by the Collateral

 

-16-


Agent to the extent the Collateral Agent deems such exclusion reasonably necessary to preserve and protect the Collateral. The Collateral Agent shall not be required to remove any of the Collateral from any such premises upon the Collateral Agent’s taking possession thereof, and may render any Collateral unusable to the Grantors. In no event shall the Collateral Agent be liable to any Grantor for use or occupancy by the Collateral Agent of any premises pursuant to this SECTION 6.01, nor for any charge (such as wages for the Grantors’ employees and utilities) incurred in connection with the Collateral Agent’s exercise of the Collateral Agent’s Rights and Remedies (as defined herein) hereunder.

(f) The Collateral Agent may require any Grantor to assemble the Collateral and make it available to the Collateral Agent at the Grantor’s sole risk and expense at a place or places which are reasonably convenient to both the Collateral Agent and such Grantor.

(g) Each Grantor agrees that the Collateral Agent shall have the right, subject to Applicable Law, to sell or otherwise dispose of all or any part of the Collateral, at public or private sale, for cash, upon credit or for future delivery as the Collateral Agent shall deem appropriate. Each purchaser at any such sale shall hold the property sold absolutely, free from any claim or right on the part of any Grantor.

(h) Unless the Collateral is perishable or threatens to decline speedily in value, or is of a type customarily sold on a recognized market (in which event the Collateral Agent shall provide the Grantors such notice as may be practicable under the circumstances), the Collateral Agent shall give the Grantors at least ten (10) days’ prior written notice, by authenticated record, of the date, time and place of any proposed public sale, and of the date after which any private sale or other disposition of the Collateral may be made. Each Grantor agrees that such written notice shall satisfy all requirements for notice to that Grantor which are imposed under the UCC or other Applicable Law with respect to the exercise of the Collateral Agent’s Rights and Remedies upon default. The Collateral Agent shall not be obligated to make any sale or other disposition of any Collateral if it shall determine not to do so, regardless of the fact that notice of sale or other disposition of such Collateral shall have been given. The Collateral Agent may, without notice or publication, adjourn any public or private sale or cause the same to be adjourned from time to time by announcement at the time and place fixed for sale, and such sale may, without further notice, be made at the time and place to which the same was so adjourned.

(i) Any public sale shall be held at such time or times within ordinary business hours and at such place or places as the Collateral Agent may fix and state in the notice of such sale. At any sale or other disposition, the Collateral, or portion thereof, to be sold may be sold in one lot as an entirety or in separate parcels, as the Collateral Agent may (in its sole and absolute discretion) determine. If any of the Collateral is sold, leased, or otherwise disposed of by the Collateral Agent on credit, the Secured Obligations shall not be deemed to have been reduced as a result thereof unless and until payment in full is received thereon by the Collateral Agent.

 

-17-


(j) At any public (or, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, private) sale made pursuant to this SECTION 6.01, the Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party may bid for or purchase, free (to the extent permitted by Applicable Law) from any right of redemption, stay, valuation or appraisal on the part of any Grantor, the Collateral or any part thereof offered for sale and may make payment on account thereof by using any claim then due and payable to the Collateral Agent or such other Secured Party from any Grantor on account of the Secured Obligations as a credit against the purchase price, and the Collateral Agent or such other Secured Party may, upon compliance with the terms of sale, hold, retain and dispose of such property without further accountability to any Grantor therefor.

(k) For purposes hereof, a written agreement to purchase the Collateral or any portion thereof shall be treated as a sale thereof. The Collateral Agent shall be free to carry out such sale pursuant to such agreement and no Grantor shall be entitled to the return of the Collateral or any portion thereof subject thereto, notwithstanding the fact that after the Collateral Agent shall have entered into such an agreement all Events of Default shall have been remedied and the Secured Obligations paid in full.

(l) As an alternative to exercising the power of sale herein conferred upon it, the Collateral Agent may proceed by a suit or suits at law or in equity to foreclose upon the Collateral and to sell the Collateral or any portion thereof pursuant to a judgment or decree of a court or courts having competent jurisdiction or pursuant to a proceeding by a court-appointed receiver.

(m) To the extent permitted by Applicable Law, each Grantor hereby waives all rights of redemption, stay, valuation and appraisal which such Grantor now has or may at any time in the future have under any rule of law or statute now existing or hereafter enacted.

SECTION 6.02 Application of Proceeds. After the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default and acceleration of the Secured Obligations pursuant to the terms hereof and of the Credit Agreement, the Collateral Agent shall apply the proceeds of any collection or sale of the Collateral, as well as any Collateral consisting of cash, or any Collateral granted under any other of the Security Documents, in accordance with Section 7.03 of the Credit Agreement.

The Collateral Agent shall have absolute discretion as to the time of application of any such proceeds, moneys or balances in accordance with this Agreement. Upon any sale or other disposition of the Collateral by the Collateral Agent (including pursuant to a power of sale granted by statute or under a judicial proceeding), the receipt of the purchase money by the Collateral Agent or of the officer making the sale or other disposition shall be a sufficient

 

-18-


discharge to the purchaser or purchasers of the Collateral so sold or otherwise disposed of and such purchaser or purchasers shall not be obligated to see to the application of any part of the purchase money paid over to the Collateral Agent or such officer or be answerable in any way for the misapplication thereof.

ARTICLE 7

Perfection of Security Interest

SECTION 7.01 Perfection by Filing. This Agreement constitutes an authenticated record, and each Grantor hereby authorizes the Collateral Agent, pursuant to the provisions of SECTION 2.01 and SECTION 5.02, to file one or more financing or continuation statements, and amendments thereto, relative to all or any part of the Collateral, in such filing offices as the Collateral Agent shall reasonably deem necessary, and the Grantors shall pay the Collateral Agent’s reasonable costs and out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection therewith. Each Grantor hereby further agrees that a carbon, photographic, or other reproduction of this Agreement shall be sufficient as a Financing Statement and may be filed as a Financing Statement in any and all jurisdictions.

SECTION 7.02 Other Perfection, Etc. The Grantors shall at any time and from time to time take such steps as the Collateral Agent may reasonably request for the Collateral Agent (a) to obtain a Collateral Access Agreement of any bailee having possession of any of the Collateral that the bailee holds such Collateral for the Collateral Agent, (b) to obtain Control of any Investment Property, Deposit Accounts (to the extent required by Section 2.18 of the Credit Agreement), Letter-of-Credit Rights or electronic Chattel Paper (as such terms are defined in the UCC), with any agreements establishing control to be in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Collateral Agent, and (c) otherwise to insure the continued perfection of the Collateral Agent’s security interest in any of the Collateral with the priority described in SECTION 3.03 and of the preservation of its rights therein.

SECTION 7.03 Savings Clause. Nothing contained in this ARTICLE 7 shall be construed to narrow the scope of the Collateral Agent’s Security Interest in any of the Collateral or the perfection or priority thereof or to impair or otherwise limit any of the Collateral Agent’s Rights and Remedies hereunder except (and then only to the extent) as mandated by the UCC.

ARTICLE 8

SECTION 8.02 Grant of Non-Exclusive License. Without limiting the provision of SECTION 6.01 hereof or any other rights of the Collateral Agent as the holder of a Lien on any IP Collateral (as defined in the Intellectual Property Security Agreement), each Grantor hereby grants to the Collateral Agent a royalty free, non-exclusive, irrevocable license, to use, apply, and affix any trademark, trade name, logo, or similar indicia of source or origin in which any Grantor now or hereafter has rights, such license to be effective upon the Collateral Agent’s exercise of the Collateral Agent’s Rights and Remedies hereunder including, without limitation, in connection with any completion of the manufacture of Inventory or any sale or other disposition of Inventory.

The provisions of SECTION 8.06(b) shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the repayment of the Secured Obligations, the expiration or termination of the Letters of Credit and the Commitments or the termination of this Agreement or any provision hereof.

(b) Without limiting or duplicating any of their indemnification obligations under the Credit Agreement, the Guaranty or the other Loan Documents, the Grantors shall jointly and severally indemnify the Secured Parties and each of their Subsidiaries and Affiliates, and each of their respective stockholders, directors, officers, employees, agents, attorneys, and advisors of any of the foregoing Persons (each such Person being called an “Indemnitee”), against, and hold each Indemnitee harmless from, any and all damages, actual out-of-pocket losses, claims, actions, causes of action, settlement payments, obligations, liabilities and related expenses, including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of one counsel for the Agents and one counsel for all other

 

-21-

(a) The rights, remedies, powers, privileges, and discretions of the Collateral Agent hereunder (herein, the “Collateral Agent’s Rights and Remedies”) shall be cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies which it would otherwise have. No delay or omission by the Collateral Agent in exercising or enforcing any of the Collateral Agent’s Rights and Remedies shall operate as, or constitute, a waiver thereof. No waiver by the Collateral Agent of any Event of Default or of any Default under any other agreement shall operate as a waiver of any other Event of Default or other Default hereunder or under any other agreement. No single or partial exercise of any of the Collateral Agent’s Rights or Remedies, and no express or implied agreement or transaction of whatever nature entered into between the Collateral Agent and any Person,

 

-22-


at any time, shall preclude the other or further exercise of the Collateral Agent’s Rights and Remedies. No waiver by the Collateral Agent of any of the Collateral Agent’s Rights and Remedies on any one occasion shall be deemed a waiver on any subsequent occasion, nor shall it be deemed a continuing waiver. The Collateral Agent’s Rights and Remedies may be exercised at such time or times and in such order of preference as the Collateral Agent may determine. The Collateral Agent’s Rights and Remedies may be exercised without resort or regard to any other source of satisfaction of the Secured Obligations. No waiver of any provisions of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or consent to any departure by any Grantor therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by paragraph (b) below, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given. No notice to or demand on any Grantor in any case shall entitle such Grantor or any other Grantor to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances.

(b) Neither this Agreement nor any provision hereof may be waived, amended or modified except pursuant to a written agreement entered into between the Collateral Agent and the Grantor or Grantors with respect to whom such waiver, amendment or modification is to apply, subject to any consent required in accordance with Section 9.02 of the Credit Agreement.

SECTION 8.09 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY) AND WAIVES DUE DILIGENCE, DEMAND, PRESENTMENT AND PROTEST AND ANY NOTICES THEREOF AS WELL AS NOTICE OF NONPAYMENT. EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVERS, AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 8.09.

SECTION 8.10 Severability. Any provision of this Agreement held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability without affecting the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof; and the invalidity of a particular provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate such provision in any other jurisdiction.

SECTION 8.11 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto on different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an

 

-23-


original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Agreement by telecopy or e-mail shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement.

SECTION 8.12 Headings. Article and Section headings used herein are for convenience of reference only, are not part of this Agreement and shall not affect the construction of, or be taken into consideration in interpreting, this Agreement.

SECTION 8.13 Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process.

(a) Each of the Grantors agrees that any suit for the enforcement of this Agreement or any other Loan Document may be brought in the courts of the State of New York sitting in the Borough of Manhattan or any federal court sitting therein, as the Collateral Agent may elect in its sole discretion, and consents to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of such courts. Each party to this Agreement hereby waives any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the venue of any such suit or any such court or that such suit is brought in an inconvenient forum and agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law. Nothing in this Agreement shall affect any right that the Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Agreement against a Grantor or its properties in the courts of any jurisdiction.

(b) Each of the Grantors agrees that any action commenced by any Grantor asserting any claim or counterclaim arising under or in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be brought solely in a court of the State of New York sitting in the Borough of Manhattan or any federal court sitting therein, as the Collateral Agent may elect in its sole discretion, and consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts with respect to any such action.

(c) Each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in SECTION 8.01. Nothing in this Agreement or any other Loan Document will affect the right of any party to this Agreement to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.

SECTION 8.14 Termination; Release of Collateral.

(a) Any Lien upon any Collateral will be released automatically if the Collateral constitutes property being sold, transferred or disposed of in a Permitted Disposition upon receipt by the Collateral Agent of the Net Proceeds thereof to the extent required by the Credit Agreement. Upon at least two (2) Business Days’ prior written request by the Lead Borrower, the Collateral Agent shall execute such documents as may be necessary to evidence the release of the Liens upon any Collateral described in this SECTION 8.14(a); provided, however, that (i) the Collateral Agent

shall not be required to execute any such document on terms which, in its reasonable opinion, would, under Applicable Law, expose the Collateral Agent to liability or create any obligation or entail any adverse consequence other than the release of such Liens without recourse or warranty, and (ii) such release shall not in any manner discharge, affect or impair the Secured Obligations or any Liens (other than those expressly being released) upon (or obligations of any Grantor in respect of) all interests retained by any Grantor, including, without limitation, the proceeds of any sale, all of which shall continue to constitute part of the Collateral.

(b) Except for those provisions of the Credit Agreement and this Agreement which expressly survive the termination thereof, this Agreement and the Security Interest granted herein shall terminate when (i) the Commitments have expired or been terminated, (ii) all of the Secured Obligations (other than contingent indemnity obligations with respect to then unasserted claims) have been paid in full in cash, (iii) all Letter of Credit Outstandings have been reduced to zero (or fully cash collateralized in a manner reasonably satisfactory to the applicable Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent to the extent provided in the Credit Agreement), and (iv) the Issuing Banks have no further obligation to issue Letters of Credit under the Credit Agreement, at which time the Collateral Agent shall execute and deliver to the Grantors, at the Grantors’ expense, all UCC termination statements and similar documents that the Grantors shall reasonably request to evidence such termination; provided, however, that in connection with the termination of this Agreement and the release and termination of the security interests in the Collateral, the Collateral Agent may require such indemnities as it shall reasonably deem necessary or appropriate to protect the Credit Parties against (x) loss on account of credits previously applied to the Obligations that may subsequently be reversed or revoked, and (y) any obligations that may thereafter arise with respect to the Other Liabilities, and provided further that the Credit Agreement, this Agreement, and the Security Interest granted herein shall be reinstated if at any time payment, or any part thereof, of any Secured Obligation is rescinded or must otherwise be restored by any Secured Party upon the bankruptcy or reorganization of any Grantor or any other Loan Party. Any execution and delivery of termination statements or other documents pursuant to this SECTION 8.14 shall be without recourse to, or warranty by, the Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party.

SECTION 8.15 Intercreditor Agreement. The Grantors and the Collateral Agent acknowledge that the exercise of certain of the Collateral Agent’s Rights and Remedies hereunder may be subject to, and restricted by, the provisions of the Intercreditor Agreement. Except as specified herein, nothing contained in the Intercreditor Agreement shall be deemed to modify any of the provisions of this Agreement, which, as among the Grantors and the Collateral Agent shall remain in full force and effect.
