The parties hereto agree (i) to the extent that the results of such appraisals indicate that the aggregate appraised fair market value of all such owned Real Estate listed on Schedule A hereto (the New Appraised Fair Market Value) is less than the aggregate appraised market value of all such owned Real Estate listed on Schedule A hereto currently included in the Real Estate Borrowing Base, as reduced by any amortization pursuant thereto (the Existing Appraised Fair Market Value), the Agent shall be permitted to reduce the Real Estate Borrowing Base by an amount equal to the difference between the New Appraised Fair Market Value and the Existing Appraised Fair Market Value and (ii) such appraisals shall not count against the limited number of Real Estate appraisals for which expense reimbursement may be sought pursuant to clause (f) of Annex E to the Credit Agreement.

Upon the effectiveness of this Amendment each reference in (a) the Credit Agreement to this Agreement, hereunder, hereof, or words of similar import and (b) any other Loan Document to the Agreement shall, in each case and except as otherwise specifically stated therein, mean and be a reference to the Credit Agreement as amended hereby.

This Amendment shall be binding on and shall inure to the benefit of the Credit Parties, Agent and Lenders and their respective successors and assigns, except as otherwise provided herein. No Credit Party may assign, transfer, hypothecate or otherwise convey its rights, benefits, obligations or duties hereunder without the prior express written consent of Agent and Lenders. The terms and provisions of this Amendment are for the purpose of defining the relative rights and obligations of the Credit Parties, Agent and Lenders with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby and there shall be no third party beneficiaries of any of the terms and provisions of this Amendment.
(b) Entire Agreement. This Amendment, including all schedules and other documents attached hereto or incorporated by reference herein or delivered in connection herewith, constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all other understandings, oral or written, with respect to the subject matter hereof.
(c) Fees and Expenses. As provided in Section 11.3 of the Credit Agreement, the Borrowers agree to pay on demand all fees, costs and expenses incurred by Agent in connection with the preparation, execution and delivery of this Amendment.
(d) Headings. Section headings in this Amendment are included herein for convenience of reference only and shall not constitute a part of this Amendment for any other purpose.
(e) Severability. Wherever possible, each provision of this Amendment shall be interpreted in such a 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.
(f) Conflict of Terms. Except as otherwise provided in this Amendment, if any provision contained in this Amendment is in conflict with, or inconsistent with, any provision in any of the other Loan Documents, the provision contained in this Amendment shall govern and control.
(g) Counterparts. This Amendment may be executed in any number of separate counterparts, each of which shall collectively and separately constitute one agreement.

(h) Incorporation of Credit Agreement. The provisions contained in Sections 11.9 and 11.13 of the Credit Agreement are incorporated herein by reference to the same extent as if reproduced herein in their entirety, except with reference to this Amendment rather than the Credit Agreement.
(i) Acknowledgment. Each Credit Party hereby acknowledges its status as a Credit Party and affirms its obligations under the Credit Agreement and represents and warrants
that there are no liabilities, claims, suits, debts, liens, losses, causes of action, demands, rights, damages or costs, or expenses of any kind, character or nature whatsoever, known or unknown, fixed or contingent (collectively, the Claims), which any Credit Party may have or claim to have against Agent or any Lender, or any of their respective affiliates, agents, employees, officers, directors, representatives, attorneys, successors and assigns (collectively, the Lender Released Parties), which might arise out of or be connected with any act of commission or omission of the Lender Released Parties existing or occurring on or prior to the date of this Amendment, including, without limitation, any Claims arising with respect to the Obligations or any Loan Documents. In furtherance of the foregoing, each Credit Party hereby releases, acquits and forever discharges the Lender Released Parties from any and all Claims that any Credit Party may have or claim to have, relating to or arising out of or in connection with the Obligations or any Loan Documents or any other agreement or transaction contemplated thereby or any action taken in connection therewith from the beginning of time up to and including the date of the execution and delivery of this Amendment.
