certificate, to be a "security" within the meaning of Article 8 of the New York
UCC and to be governed by Article 8 of the New York UCC, in each case not later

other communications received by it with respect to Pledged Securities
registered in the name of such Pledgor. The Collateral Agent shall at all times

           terms of this Agreement, the Credit Agreement and the other Loan
           Documents; provided that such rights and powers shall not be
           exercised in any manner that could materially and adversely affect
           the rights inuring to a holder of any Pledged Securities, the rights
           and remedies of any of the Collateral Agent or the other Secured
           Parties under this Agreement, the Credit Agreement or any other Loan
           Document or the ability of the Secured Parties to exercise the same.

                  (ii) The Collateral Agent shall promptly execute and deliver
           to each Pledgor, or cause to be executed and delivered to such
           Pledgor, all such proxies, powers of attorney and other instruments

           distributions that would constitute Pledged Securities, whether
           resulting from a subdivision, combination or reclassification of the
           outstanding Equity Interests of the issuer of any Pledged Securities
           or received in exchange for Pledged Securities or any part thereof,
           or in redemption thereof, or as a result of any merger,
           consolidation, acquisition or other exchange of assets to which such
           issuer may be a party or otherwise, shall be and become part of the
           Pledged Collateral, and, if received by any Pledgor, shall not be
           commingled by such Pledgor with any of its other funds or property
           but shall be held separate and apart therefrom, shall be held in
           trust for the benefit of the Collateral Agent, for the ratable
           benefit of the Secured Parties, and shall be forthwith delivered to
           the Collateral Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties,





                                                                              10


           in the same form as so received (endorsed in a manner reasonably
           satisfactory to the Collateral Agent).

                  (b) Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event
of Default, and after notice by the Collateral Agent to the relevant Pledgors of
the Collateral Agent's intention to exercise its rights hereunder, all rights of
any Pledgor to dividends, interest, principal or other distributions that such
Pledgor is authorized to receive pursuant to paragraph (a)(iii) of this Section
2.06 shall cease, and all such rights shall thereupon become vested, for the
ratable benefit of the Secured Parties, in the Collateral Agent which shall have
the sole and exclusive right and authority to receive and retain such dividends,
interest, principal or other distributions. All dividends, interest, principal
or other distributions received by any Pledgor contrary to the provisions of
this Section 2.06 shall not be commingled by such Pledgor with any of its other
funds or property but shall be held separate and apart therefrom, shall be held
in trust for the benefit of the Collateral Agent, for the ratable benefit of the
Secured Parties, and shall be forthwith delivered to the Collateral Agent, for
the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties, in the same form as so received
(endorsed in a manner reasonably satisfactory to the Collateral Agent). Any and
all money and other property paid over to or received by the Collateral Agent
pursuant to the provisions of this paragraph (b) shall be retained by the
Collateral Agent in an account to be established by the Collateral Agent upon
receipt of such money or other property and shall be applied in accordance with
the provisions of Section 3.02. After all Events of Default have been cured or
waived and the U.S. Borrower has delivered to the Collateral Agent a certificate
to that effect, the Collateral Agent shall promptly repay to each Pledgor
(without interest) all dividends, interest, principal or other distributions
that such Pledgor would otherwise be permitted to retain pursuant to the terms
of paragraph (a)(iii) of this Section 2.06 and that remain in such account.

                  (c) Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event
of Default, and after notice by the Collateral Agent to the relevant Pledgors of
the Collateral Agent's intention to exercise its rights hereunder, all rights of
any Pledgor to exercise the voting and/or




                                                                              11


consensual rights and powers it is entitled to exercise pursuant to paragraph
(a)(i) of this Section 2.06, and the obligations of the Collateral Agent under
paragraph (a)(ii) of this Section 3.06, shall cease, and all such rights shall
thereupon become vested in the Collateral Agent, for the ratable benefit of the
Secured Parties, which shall have the sole and exclusive right and authority to
exercise such voting and consensual rights and powers; provided that, unless
otherwise directed by the Required Lenders, the Collateral Agent shall have the
right from time to time following and during the continuance of an Event of
Default to permit the Pledgors to exercise such rights. After all Events of
Default have been cured or waived and the U.S. Borrower has delivered to the
Collateral Agent a certificate to that effect, each Pledgor shall have the right
to exercise the voting and/or consensual rights and powers that such Pledgor
would otherwise be entitled to exercise pursuant to the terms of paragraph
(a)(i) above.

                                  ARTICLE III

                                    Remedies
                                    --------

                  Section 3.01. Remedies Upon Default. Upon the occurrence and
during the continuance of an Event of Default, each Pledgor agrees to deliver
each item of Pledged Collateral to the Collateral Agent on demand, and it is
agreed that the Collateral Agent shall have the right, subject to the mandatory
requirements of applicable law, to sell or otherwise dispose of all or any part
of the Pledged Collateral at a public or private sale or at any broker's board
or on any securities exchange, for cash, upon credit or for future delivery as
the Collateral Agent shall deem appropriate. The Collateral Agent shall be
authorized in connection with any sale of a security (if it deems it advisable
to do so) pursuant to the foregoing to restrict the prospective bidders or
purchasers to persons who represent and agree that they are purchasing such
security for their own account, for investment, and not with a view to the
distribution or sale thereof. Upon consummation of any such sale of Pledged
Collateral pursuant to this Section 3.01, the Collateral Agent shall have the
right to assign, transfer and deliver to the purchaser or purchasers thereof the
Collateral so sold. Each such purchaser at any such sale shall hold the property
sold absolutely, free from any claim or right on




                                                                              12


the part of any Pledgor, and each Pledgor hereby waives and releases (to the
extent permitted by law) all rights of redemption, stay, valuation and appraisal
that such Pledgor now has or may at any time in the future have under any rule
of law or statute now existing or hereafter enacted.

                  The Collateral Agent shall give the applicable Pledgors 10
Business Days' written notice (which each Pledgor agrees is reasonable notice
within the meaning of Section 9-611 of the New York UCC or its equivalent in
other jurisdictions) of the Collateral Agent's intention to make any sale of
Pledged Collateral. Such notice, in the case of a public sale, shall state the
time and place for such sale and, in the case of a sale at a broker's board or
on a securities exchange, shall state the board or exchange at which such sale
is to be made and the day on which the Pledged Collateral, or portion thereof,
will first be offered for sale at such board or exchange. Any such 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 (if any)
of such sale. At any such sale, the Pledged Collateral, or the 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. The
Collateral Agent shall not be obligated to make any sale of any Pledged
Collateral if it shall determine not to do so, regardless of the fact that
notice of sale of such Pledged 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. In the case of any sale of
all or any part of the Pledged Collateral made on credit or for future delivery,
the Pledged Collateral so sold may be retained by the Collateral Agent until the
sale price is paid by the purchaser or purchasers thereof, but the Collateral
Agent shall not incur any liability in the event that any such purchaser or
purchasers shall fail to take up and pay for the Pledged Collateral so sold and,
in the case of any such failure, such Pledged Collateral may be sold again upon
notice given in accordance with provisions above. At any public (or, to the
extent permitted by law, private) sale made pursuant to this Section 3.01, any
Secured Party may




                                                                              13


bid for or purchase for cash, free (to the extent permitted by law) from any
right of redemption, stay, valuation or appraisal on the part of any Pledgor
(all such rights being also hereby waived and released to the extent permitted
by law), the Pledged Collateral or any part thereof offered for sale and such
Secured Party may, upon compliance with the terms of sale, hold, retain and
dispose of such property without further accountability to any Pledgor therefor.
For purposes hereof, a written agreement to purchase the Pledged 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 Pledgor
shall be entitled to the return of the Pledged 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 Foreign Obligations paid in full. 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 this Agreement and
to sell the Pledged 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. Any sale pursuant to the provisions of
this Section 3.01 shall be deemed to conform to the commercially reasonable
standards as provided in Section 9-610(b) of the New York UCC or its equivalent
in other jurisdictions.

                  Section 3.02. Application of Proceeds. The Collateral Agent
shall apply the proceeds, moneys or balances of any collection or sale of
Pledged Collateral, as well as any Pledged Collateral consisting of cash, as
follows:

                  FIRST, to the payment of all costs and expenses incurred by
         the Applicable Agent and the Collateral Agent in connection with such
         collection or sale or otherwise in connection with this Agreement, any
         other Loan Document or any of the Foreign Obligations, including all
         court costs and the fees and expenses of its agents and legal counsel,
         the repayment of all advances made by the Applicable Agent and the
         Collateral Agent hereunder or under any other Loan Document on behalf
         of any Pledgor and any other costs or expenses incurred in connection
         with the exercise





                                                                              14


         of any right or remedy hereunder or under any other Loan Document;

                  SECOND, to the payment in full of the Foreign Obligations (the
         amounts so applied to be distributed among the Secured Parties pro rata
         in accordance with the respective amounts of the Foreign Obligations
         owed to them on the date of any such distribution); and

                  THIRD, to the Pledgors, their successors or assigns, or as a
         court of competent jurisdiction may otherwise direct.

                  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 of Pledged 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 shall be a sufficient discharge to the purchaser or
purchasers of the Pledged Collateral so sold 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.

                  Section 3.03. Securities Act, etc. In view of the position of
the Pledgors in relation to the Pledged Collateral, or because of other current
or future circumstances, a question may arise under the Securities Act of 1933,
as now or hereafter in effect, or any similar federal statute hereafter enacted
analogous in purpose or effect (such Act and any such similar statute as from
time to time in effect being called the "Federal Securities Laws") with respect
to any disposition of the Pledged Collateral permitted hereunder. Each Pledgor
understands that compliance with the Federal Securities Laws might very strictly
limit the course of conduct of the Collateral Agent if the Collateral Agent were
to attempt to dispose of all or any part of the Pledged Collateral, and might
also limit the extent to which or the manner in which any subsequent transferee
of any Pledged Collateral could dispose of the same. Similarly, there may be
other legal restrictions or limitations affecting the Collateral Agent





                                                                              15


in any attempt to dispose of all or part of the Pledged Collateral under
applicable Blue Sky or other state securities laws or similar laws analogous in
purpose or effect. Each Pledgor acknowledges and agrees that in light of such
restrictions and limitations, the Collateral Agent, in its sole and absolute
discretion, (a) may proceed to make such a sale whether or not a registration
statement for the purpose of registering such Pledged Collateral or part thereof
shall have been filed under the Federal Securities Laws or, to the extent
applicable, Blue Sky or other state securities laws and (b) may approach and
negotiate with a single potential purchaser to effect such sale. Each Pledgor
acknowledges and agrees that any such sale might result in prices and other
terms less favorable to the seller than if such sale were a public sale without
such restrictions. In the event of any such sale, the Collateral Agent shall
incur no responsibility or liability for selling all or any part of the Pledged
Collateral at a price that the Collateral Agent, in its sole and absolute
discretion, may in good faith deem reasonable under the circumstances,
notwithstanding the possibility that a substantially higher price might have
been realized if the sale were deferred until after registration as aforesaid or
if more than a single purchaser were approached. The provisions of this Section
3.03 will apply notwithstanding the existence of a public or private market upon
which the quotations or sales prices may exceed substantially the price at which
the Collateral Agent sells.

                  Section 3.04. Registration, etc. Each Pledgor agrees that,
upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, if for
any reason the Collateral Agent desires to sell any of the Pledged Collateral at
a public sale, it will, at any time and from time to time, upon the written
request of the Collateral Agent, use its commercially reasonable efforts to take
or to cause the issuer of such Pledged Collateral to take such action and
prepare, distribute and/or file such documents, as are required or advisable in
the reasonable opinion of counsel for the Collateral Agent to permit the public
sale of such Pledged Collateral. Each Pledgor further agrees to indemnify,
defend and hold harmless the Collateral Agent, the Administrative Agent, each
other Secured Party, any underwriter and their respective officers, directors,
affiliates and controlling persons from and against all loss, liability,
expenses, costs of counsel (including





                                                                              16


reasonable fees and expenses to the Collateral Agent of legal counsel), and
claims (including the costs of investigation) that they may incur insofar as
such loss, liability, expense or claim arises out of or is based upon any
alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any prospectus (or any
amendment or supplement thereto) or in any notification or offering circular, or
arises out of or is based upon any alleged omission to state a material fact
required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements in any thereof
not misleading, except insofar as the same may have been caused by any untrue
statement or omission based upon information furnished in writing to such
Pledgor or the issuer of such Pledged Collateral by the Collateral Agent or any
other Secured Party expressly for use therein. Each Pledgor further agrees, upon
such written request referred to above, to use its commercially reasonable
efforts to qualify, file or register, or cause the issuer of such Pledged
Collateral to qualify, file or register, any of the Pledged Collateral under the
Blue Sky or other securities laws of such states as may be reasonably requested
by the Collateral Agent and keep effective, or cause to be kept effective, all
such qualifications, filings or registrations. Each Pledgor will bear all costs
and expenses of carrying out its obligations under this Section 3.04. Each
Pledgor acknowledges that there is no adequate remedy at law for failure by it
to comply with the provisions of this Section 3.04 and that such failure would
not be adequately compensable in damages and, therefore, agrees that its
agreements contained in this Section 3.04 only may be specifically enforced.

                                  Miscellaneous
                                  -------------

                  Section 4.01. Notices. All communications and notices
hereunder shall (except as otherwise expressly permitted herein) be in writing
and given as provided in Section 9.01 of the Credit Agreement. All
communications and notices hereunder to any Pledgor shall be given to it in care
of the U.S. Borrower, with such notice to be given as provided in Section 9.01
of the Credit Agreement.

                  Section 4.02. Security Interest Absolute. All rights of the
Collateral Agent hereunder, the security




                                                                              17


interest in the Pledged Collateral granted hereunder and all obligations of each
Pledgor hereunder shall be absolute and unconditional irrespective of (a) any
lack of validity or enforceability of the Credit Agreement, any other Loan
Document, any agreement with respect to any of the Foreign Obligations or any
other agreement or instrument relating to any of the foregoing, (b) any change
in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any other term of, all or any
of the Foreign Obligations, or any other amendment or waiver of or any consent
to any departure from the Credit Agreement, any other Loan Document or any other
agreement or instrument, (c) any exchange, release or non-perfection of any Lien
on other collateral, or any release or amendment or waiver of or consent under
or departure from any guarantee, securing or guaranteeing all or any of the
Foreign Obligations or (d) any other circumstance that might otherwise
constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, any Pledgor in respect of
the Foreign Obligations or this Agreement.

                  Section 4.03. Survival of Agreement. All covenants,
agreements, representations and warranties made by the Pledgors in the Loan
Documents and in the certificates or other instruments prepared or delivered in
connection with or pursuant to this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall
be considered to have been relied upon by the Revolving Credit Lenders and shall
survive the execution and delivery of the Loan Documents and the making of any
Loans and the issuance of any Letters of Credit, regardless of any investigation
made by any Lender or on its behalf and notwithstanding that the Administrative
Agent, the Collateral Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender may have had notice
or knowledge of any Default or Event of Default or incorrect representation or
warranty at the time any credit is extended under the Credit Agreement, and
shall continue in full force and effect as long as the principal of or any
accrued interest on any Loan or any fee or any other amount payable under any
Loan Document is outstanding and unpaid or any Letter of Credit is outstanding
and so long as the Commitments have not expired or terminated.

                  Section 4.04. Binding Effect; Several Agreement. This
Agreement shall become effective as to any party to this Agreement when a
counterpart hereof executed on behalf of such party shall have been delivered to
the




                                                                              17


Administrative Agent and a counterpart hereof shall have been executed on behalf
of the Collateral Agent, and thereafter shall be binding upon such party and the
Collateral Agent and their respective permitted successors and assigns, and
shall inure to the benefit of such party, the Collateral Agent and the other
Secured Parties and their respective permitted successors and assigns, except
that no party shall have the right to assign or transfer its rights or
obligations hereunder or any interest herein or in the Pledged Collateral (and
any such assignment or transfer shall be void) except as expressly contemplated
by this Agreement or the Credit Agreement. This Agreement shall be construed as
a separate agreement with respect to each party and may be amended, modified,
supplemented, waived or released with respect to any party without the approval
of any other party and without affecting the obligations of any other party
hereunder.

                  Section 4.05. Successors and Assigns. Whenever in this
Agreement any of the parties hereto is referred to, such reference shall be
deemed to include the permitted successors and assigns of such party; and all
covenants, promises and agreements by or on behalf of any Pledgor or the
Collateral Agent that are contained in this Agreement shall bind and inure to
the benefit of their respective permitted successors and assigns.

                  Section 4.06. Collateral Agent's Fees and Expenses;
Indemnification. (a) The parties hereto agree that the Collateral Agent shall be
entitled to reimbursement of its expenses incurred hereunder as provided in
Section 9.05 of the Credit Agreement.

                  (b) Without limitation of its indemnification obligations
under the other Loan Documents, each Pledgor jointly and severally agrees to
indemnify the Collateral Agent and the other Indemnitees (as defined in Section
9.05 of the Credit Agreement) against, and hold each Indemnitee harmless from,
any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses, including
reasonable counsel fees, charges and disbursements, incurred by or asserted
against any Indemnitee arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of (i)
the execution, delivery or performance of this Agreement or any other Loan
Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, the
performance by the parties hereto and




                                                                              19


thereto of their respective obligations thereunder or the consummation of the
Transactions and other transactions contemplated hereby, (ii) the use of
proceeds of the Loans or the use of any Letter of Credit or (iii) any claim,
litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, or to
the Pledged Collateral, whether or not any Indemnitee is a party thereto;
provided that such indemnity shall not, as to any Indemnitee, be available to
the extent that such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or related expenses
are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable
judgment to have resulted from the gross negligence or wilful misconduct of such
Indemnitee.

                  (c) Any such amounts payable as provided hereunder shall be
additional Foreign Obligations. The provisions of this Section 4.06 shall remain
operative and in full force and effect regardless of the termination of this
Agreement or any other Loan Document, the consummation of the transactions
contemplated hereby, the repayment of any of the Foreign Obligations, the
invalidity or unenforceability of any term or provision of this Agreement or any
other Loan Document, or any investigation made by or on behalf of the Collateral
Agent or any other Secured Party. All amounts due under this Section 4.06 shall
be payable on written demand therefor.

                  Section 4.07. Collateral Agent Appointed Attorney-in-Fact.
Each Pledgor hereby appoints the Collateral Agent the attorney-in-fact of such
Pledgor for the purpose of carrying out the provisions of this Agreement and
taking any action and executing any instrument that the Collateral Agent may
deem necessary or advisable to accomplish the purposes hereof, which appointment
is irrevocable and coupled with an interest. Without limiting the generality of
the foregoing, the Collateral Agent shall have the right, upon the occurrence
and during the continuance of an Event of Default, with full power of
substitution either in the Collateral Agent's name or in the name of such
Pledgor, (a) to receive, endorse, assign or deliver any and all notes,
acceptances, checks, drafts, money orders or other evidences of payment relating
to the Pledged Collateral or any part thereof, (b) to demand, collect, receive
payment of, give receipt for and give discharges and releases of all or any of
the Pledged Collateral, (c) to ask for, demand, sue for,




                                                                              20


collect, receive and give acquittance for any and all moneys due or to become
due under and by virtue of any Pledged Collateral, (d) to sign the name of any
Pledgor on any invoice or bill of lading relating to any of the Pledged
Collateral, (e) 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 Pledged Collateral or to
enforce any rights in respect of any Pledged Collateral, (f) to settle,
compromise, compound, adjust or defend any actions, suits or proceedings
relating to all or any of the Pledged Collateral, and (g) to sell, assign,
transfer, pledge, make any agreement with respect to or otherwise deal with all
or any of the Pledged Collateral, and to do all other acts and things necessary
to carry out the purposes of this Agreement, as fully and completely as though
the Collateral Agent were the absolute owner of the Pledged Collateral for all
purposes; provided that nothing herein contained shall be construed as requiring
or obligating the Collateral Agent to make any commitment or to make any inquiry
as to the nature or sufficiency of any payment received by the Collateral Agent,
or to present or file any claim or notice, or to take any action with respect to
the Pledged Collateral or any part thereof or the moneys due or to become due in
respect thereof or any property covered thereby. The Collateral Agent and the
other Secured Parties shall be accountable only for amounts actually received as
a result of the exercise of the powers granted to them herein, and neither they
nor their officers, directors, employees or agents shall be responsible to any
Pledgor for any act or failure to act hereunder, except for their own gross
negligence or wilful misconduct.

                  Section 4.08. GOVERNING LAW. THIS AGREEMENT AND THE RIGHTS AND
OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE
WITH AND GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

                  Section 4.09. Waivers; Amendment. (a) No failure or delay by
the Applicable Agent, the Collateral Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender in
exercising any right, power or remedy hereunder or under any other Loan Document
shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of
any such right, power or remedy, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps
to




                                                                              21


enforce such a right, power or remedy, preclude any other or further exercise
thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or remedy. The rights, powers
and remedies of the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, any Issuing Bank
and the Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents are cumulative and
are not exclusive of any rights, powers or remedies that they would otherwise
have. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement or consent to any departure
by any Loan Party therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same
shall be permitted by paragraph (b) of this Section 4.09, and then such waiver
or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose
for which given. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the making of
a Loan or the issuance of a Letter of Credit shall not be construed as a waiver
of any Default or Event of Default, regardless of whether the Administrative
Agent, the Collateral Agent, any Lender or any Issuing Bank may have had notice

form of Exhibit I hereto, such subsidiary shall become a Pledgor hereunder with
the same force and effect as if originally named as a Pledgor herein. The
