R E C I T A L S
A.    The Borrower, Parent, the Administrative Agent and the financial institutions from time to time party thereto (each, a “Lender” and collectively, the “Lenders”) are parties to that certain Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of October 5, 2015 (as amended by the First Amendment, Consent and Waiver to Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of April 22, 2016, the Second Amendment, Consent and Waiver to Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of June 17, 2016 the Third Amendment (as defined below) and as further amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified prior to the date hereof, the “Credit Agreement”);
B.    The Borrower and Parent have informed the Lenders that, as a result of certain events more particularly described on the Disclosure Schedule attached hereto (the “Disclosure Schedule”), the Audit Committee of Parent’s Board of Directors (the “Audit Committee”) has concluded that the previously issued audited consolidated financial statements and other financial information contained in Parent’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the Fiscal Year ended December 31, 2015 (the “2015 Audited Report”) should no longer be relied upon. In connection therewith, (a) the Company’s earnings releases and other financial communications for the Fiscal Year ended December 31, 2015 (collectively with the 2015 Audited Report, the “Prior 2015 Financial Information”) may no longer be able to be relied upon and (b) there is a possibility that certain financial information related to the prior fiscal periods of EXH should no longer be relied upon (collectively with the Prior 2015 Financial Information, the “Prior Financial Information);
C.    The Borrower and Parent have informed the Lenders that management is working to determine the adjustments required to be made to the Prior 2015 Financial Information and, upon completion of such process, will restate or modify the 2015 Audited Report and, if applicable, the other Prior Financial Information (collectively, the “Replacement Financial Information”);
D.    Pursuant to Sections 8.01(b) of the Credit Agreement, Parent timely delivered a Compliance Certificate to the Administrative Agent with respect to the Parent’s compliance with Sections 9.10(a), 9.10(b) and 9.10(c) of the Credit Agreement as of December 31, 2015 (the “Q4 2015 Compliance Certificate”);

1



E.    A Default or Event of Default may exist or arise under Section 10.01(c) of the Credit Agreement in respect of Section 8.01(b) of the Credit Agreement due to the fact that the information contained in the Q4 2015 Compliance Certificate was based on the Prior 2015 Financial Information, which should no longer be relied upon (the “Compliance Certificate Potential Default”);
F.    Pursuant to Section 8.02(a) of the Credit Agreement, Parent is required to keep its books of record and account and the books of record and account of its Consolidated Subsidiaries in accordance with GAAP;
G.    A Default or Event of Default may exist or arise under Section 10.01(d)(iii) of the Credit Agreement as a result of the potential failure by Parent to keep books of record and account in accordance with GAAP as required by Section 8.02(a) of the Credit Agreement in connection with the Prior Financial Information (the “Books of Record Potential Default”);
H.    Parent and the Borrower have made, or have been deemed to make, from time to time the representations and warranties set forth in Section 7.11 with respect to the accuracy of all or a portion of the Prior Financial Information as and when required by the Loan Documents (collectively, the “Specified Representation”), including pursuant to Section 6.03 in connection with the making of Loans by the Lenders on the occasion of any Borrowing and the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit by the Issuing Bank (any date on which the Specified Representation is made or deemed made, a “Representation Date”);
I.    A Default or Event of Default may exist or arise under Section 10.01(c) of the Credit Agreement as a result of the potential for the Specified Representation to have been false or misleading in any material respect when made or deemed made on one or more Representation Dates (the “Representation Potential Defaults”, and together with the Compliance Certificate Potential Default and the Books of Record Potential Default, the “Specified Potential Defaults”);
J.    Additional related Defaults or Events of Default may exist or arise (i) under Section 10.01(c) of the Credit Agreement in the event that any representation or warranty made or deemed made as to the absence of a Default or Event of Default under the Loan Documents was false or misleading in any material respect on any Representation Date, in any such case solely as a result of the existence of the Specified Potential Defaults on such Representation Date; (ii) under Section 10.01(d)(i) of the Credit Agreement due to the failure to notify the Administrative Agent of any Specified Potential Default promptly after a Responsible Officer of Parent or the Borrower obtains actual knowledge thereof, as required by Section 8.01(e) of the Credit Agreement; and (iii) under Section 10.01(d) of the Credit Agreement due to the taking of any action conditioned upon the absence of a Default or Event of Default solely due to the presence of a Specified Potential Default at such time (collectively, the “Related Potential Defaults”);
K.    Section 8.01(a)(ii) of the Credit Agreement requires that Parent deliver to the Administrative Agent a copy of the quarterly report filed by Parent with the SEC pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act for (i) the Fiscal Quarter ended March 31, 2016 (the “Q1 2016 Quarterly Report”), (ii) the Fiscal Quarter ended June 30, 2016 (the “Q2 2016 Quarterly Report”), and (iii) the Fiscal Quarter ended September 30, 2016 (the “Q3 2016 Quarterly Report”) in each case within 30 days after the same is required to be filed with the SEC (but in any event within 60 days after the end of such Fiscal Quarter);

2



L.    Section 8.01(b) of the Credit Agreement requires that Parent cause to be delivered to the Administrative Agent a Compliance Certificate within ten Business Days of any delivery or deemed delivery of any quarterly report delivered by Parent pursuant to Section 8.01(a) of the Credit Agreement;
M.    The Borrower and Parent had previously requested that the Lenders consent to an extension of the periods set forth in Sections 8.01(a) and 8.01(b) of the Credit Agreement for delivery of (i) the Q1 2016 Quarterly Report and the related Compliance Certificate (the “Original Q1 2016 Quarterly Report Extension”), (ii) the Q2 2016 Quarterly Report and the related Compliance Certificate (the “Original Q2 2016 Quarterly Report Extension”), and (iii) the Q3 2016 Quarterly Report and the related Compliance Certificate (the “Original Q3 2016 Quarterly Report Extension”), in each case to the earlier of (x) within ten Business Days following the date Parent files its quarterly report with the SEC for the Fiscal Quarter ended March 31, 2016, the Fiscal Quarter ended June 30, 2016, or the Fiscal Quarter ended September 30, 2016, respectively, and (y) November 30, 2016;
N.    Pursuant to that certain Third Amendment, Consent and Waiver to Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of August 24, 2016 (the “Third Amendment”), among the Borrower, Parent, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders party thereto, the Lenders agreed to (i) waive any and all Specified Potential Defaults and Related Potential Defaults until November 30, 2016 (the “Waiver Termination Date”) unless on or prior to such date, Parent shall have delivered to the Administrative Agent the Financial Information Deliverables (as defined in the Third Amendment) and (ii) consent to the Original Q1 2016 Quarterly Report Extension, the Original Q2 2016 Quarterly Report Extension and the Original Q3 2016 Quarterly Report Extension; and

Disclosure Schedule

Parent is reviewing whether certain costs and expense estimates made in connection with certain projects undertaken by Belleli Energy S.r.l. and its Subsidiaries (collectively, the “Belleli Entities”) were either under-reported or reported during incorrect periods.  The Belleli Entities are Restricted Subsidiaries of Parent.

The Belleli Entities account for their projects using the cost-to-total cost percentage-of-completion method of accounting. Based on preliminary results of an internal investigation, Parent has determined that it is likely that the costs and expenses referred to above should have been recognized in prior periods, and that the percentage-of-completion estimate of revenue on such projects will need to be adjusted to lower amounts in such prior periods

The amount and timing of such costs and expenses, and the related adjustments to revenue for prior periods, are under review and cannot yet be quantified.

Parent is also reviewing whether certain non-cash tax adjustments may need to be made with respect to such circumstances as were disclosed to the Administrative Agent and Lenders prior to the Fourth Amendment Effective Date.
