Warrant Transactions” means one or more call options, warrants or rights to purchase (or substantively equivalent derivative transaction) referencing the Borrower’s common stock, which for the avoidance of doubt may be settled by a delivery of shares of the Borrower’s common stock or cash, written by the Borrower or a Restricted Subsidiary substantially contemporaneously with the purchase by the Borrower or such Restricted Subsidiary of Convertible Bond Hedge Transactions and having an initial strike or exercise price (howsoever defined) greater than the strike or exercise price (howsoever defined) of such Convertible Bond Hedge Transactions.

(b)           The definition of “Equity Interests” in Section 1.01 of the Credit Agreement is amended by adding the following proviso to the end of such definition: “provided, however, that Equity Interests shall not include Convertible Bond Indebtedness, Capped Call Transactions, Convertible Bond Hedge Transactions and Warrant Transactions.”.
