    (the “Pledge”).
 
2.2   The Pledgee hereby accepts the Pledge.
 
2.3   The Pledge is in addition, and without prejudice, to any other security the Secured Parties may now or hereafter hold in respect of the Obligations.
 
3.   PURPOSE OF THE PLEDGE
 
    The Pledge hereunder is constituted in order to secure the prompt and complete satisfaction of any and all Obligations. The Pledge shall also cover any future extension of the Obligations and the Pledgor herewith expressly agrees that the provisions of Section 1210 para 1 sentence 2 of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch) shall not apply to this Agreement.
 
4.   NOTICE OF PLEDGE
 
4.1   Subject to Clause 4.3 below the Pledgor undertakes that it will without undue delay, but not later than within twenty business days after the date of this Agreement, and, in relation to any Account opened after the date of this Agreement, within ten business days after such new Account has been opened, notify each Account Bank and any other relevant third party of the Pledge by delivering a notification substantially in the form set out in Schedule 3 (Form of Notice of Pledge) by registered mail (Einschreiben mit Rückschein). The Pledgor shall provide the Collateral Agent with a copy of each such notification and of the corresponding return receipt (Rückschein). In addition, the Pledgor shall use all reasonable efforts to procure that each Account Bank promptly acknowledges receipt of the respective notification, and acceptance of the terms thereof, to the Collateral Agent and to the Pledgor.
 
4.2   Without prejudice to the obligations imposed on the Pledgor in Clause 4.1 and, in the case of future Accounts, Clause 8.3, the Pledgor hereby authorises the Collateral Agent and releases it for this purpose from the restrictions of self-dealing under Section 181 of the German Civil Code to notify each Account Bank and any other relevant third party on its behalf of this Agreement and the Pledge constituted hereunder by delivering a notification substantially in the form set out in Schedule 3 (Form of Notice of Pledge), or in such substantially similar form as the Collateral Agent (acting for and on behalf of the Secured Parties) deems appropriate, provided

- 12 -


 

    that the Collateral Agent may only make use of this authorisation if the Pledgor has not complied with the obligations imposed on the Pledgor in Clause 4.1 within 10 business days of being notified of such failure (with a copy of such notice being sent to Reynolds Group Holdings Limited) and being requested to comply or if an Enforcement Event has occurred and is continuing.
 
4.3   The Pledgor shall not be under an obligation to comply with its obligation under Clause 4.1 above whilst an Enforcement Event is not continuing if the Pledgor can prove to the Collateral Agent (acting on behalf of the Secured Parties) that notifying the relevant Account Bank of the Pledge created hereunder would not be consistent with, whilst an Enforcement Event is not continuing, the Pledgor retaining control over and the ability to freely use the balance of any such Account. The Collateral Agent will take instructions in accordance with the First Lien Intercreditor Agreement whether or not to agree with the Pledgor’s analysis. For the avoidance of doubt, at the date of this Agreement the Pledgor agrees that notifying the Account Banks of the Pledge created hereunder is not inconsistent with the Pledgor retaining control over and the ability to freely use the balance of any Account existing at the date of this Agreement.
 
5.   PLEDGOR’S RIGHT OF DISPOSAL
 
    The Pledgor may exercise all rights and powers in respect of each Account until the Collateral Agent gives notice to the contrary to the Account Bank with a copy to the Pledgor. The Pledgee may give such notice only if an Enforcement Event has occurred and is continuing.
 
6.   ENFORCEMENT OF THE PLEDGE
 
6.1   If (i) an Enforcement Event has occurred and is continuing and (ii) the requirements set forth in Sections 1273 para 2, 1204 et seq. of the German Civil Code with regard to the enforcement of the Pledge are met (Pfandreife), in particular, if any of the Obligations has become due and payable, then in order to enforce the Pledge, the Collateral Agent may at any time thereafter avail itself of all rights and remedies that a pledgee has against a pledgor under the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany.
 
6.2   Notwithstanding Section 1277 of the German Civil Code, the Pledgee is entitled to exercise its rights without obtaining an enforceable judgment or other instrument (vollstreckbarer Titel). The Pledgee shall be entitled to have the Pledge enforced in any manner allowed under the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany.
 
6.3   The Pledgee will notify the Pledgor five business days prior to the enforcement of the Pledge according to Clause 6. No such notification shall be required if (i) the Pledgor has generally ceased to make payments (Zahlungseinstellung), (ii) an application for

- 13 -


 

    the institution of insolvency proceedings is filed by or against the Pledgor or (iii) the Pledgee has reasonable grounds to believe that observance of the notice period will adversely affect the legitimate interests (berechtigte Interessen) of the Pledgee.
 
6.4   If the Pledgee should seek to enforce the Pledge pursuant to Clause 6.1 hereof, the Pledgor shall, at its own expense, render forthwith all necessary assistance in order to facilitate the prompt realisation of the Pledge and/or the exercise by the Pledgee of any other right it may have as Pledgee.
 
6.5   The Pledgee may, in its sole discretion, determine which of several security interests (created under this or other security agreements) shall be used to satisfy the Obligations.
 
6.6   The Pledgor hereby expressly waives all defences of revocation (Einrede der Anfechtbarkeit) and set-off (Einrede der Aufrechenbarkeit) pursuant to Sections 770, 1211 of the German Civil Code.
 
6.7   The Pledgor hereby expressly waives its defences based on defences any Grantor might have against any of the Obligations (Einreden des Hauptschuldners) pursuant to Section 1211 para 1 sentence 1 alternative 1 of the German Civil Code.
 
6.8   If the Pledge is enforced or if the Pledgor has discharged any of the Obligations (or any part of them), Section 1225 of the German Civil Code (legal subrogation of claims to a pledgor — Forderungsübergang auf den Verpfänder) shall not apply and no rights of the Pledgee shall pass to the Pledgor by subrogation or otherwise. Further, the Pledgor shall at no time before, on or after an enforcement of the Pledge, and as a result of the Pledgor entering into this Agreement, be entitled to demand indemnification or compensation from a Grantor or any affiliate of a Grantor or assign any of these claims.
 
7.   LIMITATIONS ON ENFORCEMENT
 
7.1   The Pledgee shall be entitled to enforce the Pledge without limitation in respect of:
  (a)   all and any amounts which are owed under the Credit Documents by the Pledgor itself or by any of its subsidiaries; and
 
  (b)   all and any amounts which correspond to funds that have been borrowed or otherwise raised under the Credit Documents, in each case to the extent borrowed, on-lent or otherwise passed on to, or issued for the benefit of, the Pledgor or any of its subsidiaries, or for the benefit of any of their creditors and in each case not repaid and outstanding from time to time
    (in aggregate, the “Unlimited Enforcement Amount”).

- 14 -


 

7.2   Besides an enforcement in respect of the Unlimited Enforcement Amount pursuant to Clause 7.1 above, the Pledgee shall not be entitled to enforce the Pledge against the Pledgor if and to the extent that:
  (a)   the Pledge secures the obligations of a Grantor which is (x) a shareholder of the Pledgor or (y) an affiliated company (verbundenes Unternehmen) within the meaning of section 15 of the German Stock Corporation Act (Aktiengesetz) of a shareholder of the Pledgor (other than the Pledgor and its subsidiaries); and
 
  (b)   the enforcement would have the effect of (x) reducing the Pledgor’s net assets (Reinvermögen) (the “Net Assets”) to an amount of less than its stated share capital (Stammkapital) or, if the Net Assets are already an amount of less than its stated share capital, of causing such amount to be further reduced and (y) would thereby affect the assets required for the obligatory preservation of the Pledgor’s stated share capital (Stammkapital) according to section 30, 31 German Limited Liability Companies Act (Gesetz betreffend die Gesellschaften mit beschränkter Haftung) provided that the amount of the stated share capital to be taken into consideration shall be the amount registered in the commercial register at the date hereof, and any increase of the stated share capital registered after the date of this Agreement shall only be taken into account if such increase has been effected with the prior written consent of the Collateral Agent.
7.3   The Net Assets shall be calculated as an amount equal to the sum of the values of the Pledgor’s assets (consisting of all assets which correspond to the items set forth in section 266 sub-section(2) A, B and C of the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch) less the aggregate amount of the Pledgor’s liabilities (consisting of all liabilities and liability reserves which correspond to the items set forth in section 266 sub-section(3) B, C and D of the German Commercial Code), save that:
  (a)   any asset that is shown in the balance sheet with a book value (Buchwert) that is significantly lower than the market value of such asset and that is not necessary for the Pledgor’s business (nicht betriebsnotwendig) shall be taken into account with its market value;
 
  (b)   obligations under loans provided to the Pledgor by any member of the Group or any other affiliated company shall not be taken into account as liabilities as far as such loans are subordinated by law or by contract at least to the claims of the unsubordinated creditors of the Pledgor; and

- 15 -


 

  (c)   obligations under loans or other contractual liabilities incurred by the Pledgor in violation of the provisions of the Credit Documents shall not be taken into account as liabilities.
    The Net Assets shall be determined in accordance with the generally accepted accounting principles applicable from time to time in Germany (Grundsätze ordnungsmäßiger Buchführung) and be based on the same principles that were applied by the Pledgor in the preparation of its most recent annual balance sheet (Jahresbilanz).
 
    It being understood that the assets of the Pledgor will be assessed at liquidation values (Liquidationswerte) if the managing directors of the Pledgor, at the time they prepare the Management Determination (as defined below) are, due to factual or legal circumstances at that time, in their opinion not able to make a positive prognosis as to whether the business of the Pledgor can carry on as a going concern (positive Fortführungsprognose), in particular when the Pledge is enforced.
7.4   The limitations set out in Clause 7.2 above shall only apply if and to the extent that:
  (a)   without undue delay, but not later than within 5 business days, after receipt of a notification by the Collateral Agent of its intention to enforce the Pledge (the “Notice”), the Pledgor has confirmed in writing to the Collateral Agent (x) to what extent such Pledge is up-stream or cross-stream security as described in Clause 7.2 above and (y) which amount of such up-stream or cross-stream security cannot be enforced as it would cause the net assets of the Pledgor to fall below its stated share capital (taking into account the adjustments set out in Clause 7.3 above) and such confirmation is supported by evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Collateral Agent (the “Management Determination”) and the Collateral Agent has not contested this and argued that no or a lesser amount would be necessary to maintain the Pledgor’s stated share capital; or
 
  (b)   within 20 business days from the date the Collateral Agent has contested the Management Determination, the Collateral Agent receives from the Pledgor an up to date balance sheet prepared by a firm of auditors of international standard and reputation (the “Determining Auditors”) which shows the value of the Pledgor’s Net Assets (the “Balance Sheet”). The Balance Sheet shall be prepared in accordance with the principles set out in Clause 7.3 above, provided that the final sentence of Clause 7.3 above shall not apply unless the Determining Auditors have in an independent assessment determined that the assets of the Pledgor should be evaluated at liquidation values (Liquidationswerte) in accordance with the generally accepted accounting principles applicable from time to time in Germany (Grundsätze

- 16 -


 

    ordnungsmäßiger Buchführung) and shall contain further information (in reasonable detail) relating to items to be adjusted pursuant to Clause 7.3 above. If the Pledgor fails to deliver a Balance Sheet within the aforementioned time period, the Pledgee shall be entitled to enforce the Pledge irrespective of the limitations set out in Clause 7.2 above.
7.5   If the Pledgee disagrees with the Balance Sheet, it shall be entitled to enforce the Pledge up to the amount which, according to the Balance Sheet, can be enforced in compliance with the limitations set out in Clause 7.2 above. In relation to any additional amounts for which the Pledgor is liable under this Agreement, the Pledgee shall be entitled to further pursue their claims (if any) and the Pledgor shall be entitled to prove that this amount is necessary for maintaining its stated share capital (calculated as of the date the Pledgee has given notice of its intention to enforce the security created under this Agreement).
 
7.6   No reduction of the amount enforceable under this Clause 7 will prejudice the right of the Pledgee to continue enforcing the Pledge (subject always to the operation of the limitations set out above at the time of such enforcement) until full satisfaction to the claims secured.
 
8.   UNDERTAKINGS OF THE PLEDGOR
 
    Unless otherwise permitted by the Principal Finance Documents, during the term of this Agreement, the Pledgor undertakes to the Pledgee:
 
8.1   subject to Clause 4.3 to use all reasonable efforts to procure that each Account Bank releases any existing lien, including without limitation any pledge existing by operation of its general business conditions (Allgemeine Geschäftsbedingungen), and waives any right of set-off and right of retention in respect of the Accounts by countersigning and returning an acknowledgement of notice of pledge substantially in the form set out in Schedule 3 (Form of Notice of Pledge) to the Pledgor and the Pledgee.
 
8.2   to instruct each Account Bank to provide the Pledgee following receipt by the relevant Account Bank of a notice pursuant to Clause 5 with all information requested by it in respect of the Accounts and to that extent to release each Account Bank from its obligation to maintain confidentiality (Bankgeheimnis) by delivering a notice of pledge to the respective Account Bank in accordance with the requirements set out in Clause 4.1 or, in the case of any future Account, Clause 8.3. The Pledgor undertakes not to revoke such instruction during the term of this Agreement, other than in respect of an Account which is closed or disposed of in accordance with the terms of the Credit Documents;

- 17 -


 

8.3   to notify the Pledgee without undue delay substantially in the form set out in Schedule 4 (Form of Notification of Future Accounts) of each new bank account opened by the Pledgor with a credit institution in the Federal Republic of Germany in accordance with Clause 4 above including a designation, as applicable, whether such new bank account is a Social Security Bank Account . For the avoidance of doubt, the Pledgor is aware that any new bank account opened within the Federal Republic of Germany (except in case of a Social Security Bank Account) will become an Account in the meaning of this Agreement upon notice to the Account Bank and will be subject to the Pledge and the obligations assumed by the Pledgor hereunder without any further agreement;
 
8.4   to close any of the Accounts only upon giving 5 business days prior notice to the Pledgee and provided that the Pledgee has not given a notice pursuant to Clause 5;
 
8.5   to deliver to the Pledgee, within three months after the end of each calendar year ending after January 2011, and at any time upon reasonable request of the Pledgee, up-to date account statement sheets (Kontoauszüge) showing the balance on each of the Accounts, provided that the Pledgee shall not request such information more than one additional time in any one year prior to the occurrence of an Enforcement Event and while it is continuing;
 
8.6   with regard to any account books (Sparbücher) and any other documents which are necessary to dispose over (verfügen) any of the Accounts, the Pledgor undertakes to deliver the originals of such documents to the Pledgee without undue delay if the Pledgee has given a notice pursuant to Clause 5 and to deliver to the Pledgee upon its reasonable request following such event without undue delay any documents or other information concerning the Accounts, in particular (but not limited to) the account opening documents and any agreements between the Account Bank and the Pledgor in relation to the Accounts;
 
8.7   not to grant to any third party any rights in respect of the Accounts (keine Und-Konten oder Oder-Konten oder sonstige Rechte Dritter) (other than those arising under the relevant Account Bank’s general business conditions (Allgemeine Geschäftsbedingungen)) without the prior written consent of the Collateral Agent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld);
 
8.8   to inform the Pledgee without undue delay of any attachment (Pfändung) and any third parties bringing claims in respect of any of the Accounts, such notice to be accompanied by any documents the Pledgee might need to defend itself against any claim by a third party. In the case of any attachment (Pfändung) in respect of any of the Accounts, the Pledgor undertakes to forward to the Pledgee without undue delay a copy of the attachment order (Pfändungsbeschluss), any transfer order

- 18 -


 

    (Überweisungsbeschluss) and all other documents necessary for a defence against the attachment. The Pledgor shall inform the attaching creditor of the Pledge without undue delay; and
 
8.9   except as otherwise agreed pursuant to the Principal Finance Documents, insofar as additional declarations or actions are necessary for the creation of the Pledge, the Pledgor shall, at the Collateral Agent’s reasonable request, make such declarations and undertake such actions at the Pledgor’s costs and expenses.
 
9.   DELEGATION
 
    The Pledgee shall have full power to delegate (either generally or specifically) the powers, authorities and discretions conferred on it by this Agreement on such terms and conditions as it shall see fit. The Pledgee shall only remain liable for diligently selecting and providing initial instructions to such delegate.
 
10.   INDEMNITY
 
    To the extent set out in the First Lien Intercreditor Credit Agreement, the Pledgor shall, notwithstanding any release or discharge of all or any part of the security, indemnify the Pledgee, its agents its attorneys and any delegate against any action, proceeding, claims, losses, liabilities, damages, expenses, demands, taxes, losses and costs which it may sustain as a consequence of any breach by the Pledgor of the provisions of this Agreement, the exercise or purported exercise of any of the rights and powers conferred on them by this Agreement or otherwise relating to the Pledge.
 
11.   NO LIABILITY
 
    Except to the extent provided in the Principal Finance Documents, none of the Pledgee, its nominee(s) or agent(s) or delegate(s) shall be liable by reason of (a) taking any action permitted by this Agreement or (b) any neglect or default in connection with the assets and rights subject to the security interest created hereunder, save in respect of any loss or damage which is suffered as a result of wilful misconduct (Vorsatz) or gross negligence (grobe Fahrlässigkeit) by the Pledgee, its nominee(s) or agent(s) or delegate(s), or (c) the enforcement or realisation of all or any part of the security interest created hereunder.
 
12.   DURATION AND INDEPENDENCE
 
12.1   This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect until complete satisfaction of the Obligations. The Pledge shall not cease to exist, if the Grantors under the Credit Documents have only temporarily discharged the Obligations.

- 19 -


 

12.2   This Agreement shall create a continuing security and no change, amendment, or supplement whatsoever in the Credit Documents or in any document or agreement related to any of the Credit Documents shall affect the validity or the scope of this Agreement nor the obligations which are imposed on the Pledgor pursuant to it.
 
12.3   This Agreement is independent from any other security or guarantee which may have been or will be given to the Pledgee. None of such other security shall prejudice, or shall be prejudiced by, or shall be merged in any way with this Agreement.
 
12.4   Waiving Section 418 of the German Civil Code, the Pledgor hereby agrees that the security created hereunder shall not be affected by any transfer or assumption of the Obligations to, or by, any third party.
 
13.   RELEASE (PFANDFREIGABE)
 
13.1   Upon complete and irrevocable satisfaction of the Obligations, the Collateral Agent (as instructed in accordance with the First Lien Intercreditor Agreement) will as soon as reasonably practical declare in writing the release of the Pledge (Pfandfreigabe) to the Pledgor as a matter of record. For the avoidance of doubt, the parties are aware that upon full and complete satisfaction of the Obligations the Pledge, due to its accessory nature (Akzessorietät), ceases to exist by operation of German mandatory law.
 
13.2   At any time when the total value of the aggregate security granted by the Pledgor and any of the other Grantors to secure the Obligations (the “Security”), which can be expected to be realised in the event of an enforcement of the Security (realisierbarer Wert), exceeds 110% of the Obligations (the “Limit”) not only temporarily, the Pledgee shall on demand of the Pledgor release such part of the Security (Sicherheitenfreigabe) as the Pledgee (as instructed in accordance with the First Lien Intercreditor Agreement) may in its reasonable discretion determine so as to reduce the realisable value of the Security to the Limit.
 
13.3   The Pledgee (as instructed in accordance with the First Lien Intercreditor Agreement) will as soon as reasonably practicable declare in writing the release of the Pledge (Pfandfreigabe) to the Pledgor in accordance with, and to the extent required by, the Intercreditor Arrangements.
 
14.   PARTIAL INVALIDITY; WAIVER
 
14.1   If at any time, any one or more of the provisions hereof is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect under the law of any jurisdiction, such provision shall as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent necessary without affecting or impairing the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof

- 20 -


 

  or of such provisions in any other jurisdiction. The invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision shall be deemed to be replaced with such valid, legal or enforceable provision which comes as close as possible to the original intent of the parties and the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision. Should a gap (Regelungslücke) become evident in this Agreement, such gap shall, without affecting or impairing the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof, be deemed to be filled in with such provision which comes as close as possible to the original intent of the parties.
 
14.2   No failure to exercise, nor any delay in exercising, on the part of the Pledgee, any right or remedy hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or remedy prevent any further or other exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or remedy. The rights and remedies provided hereunder are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law.
 
15.   AMENDMENTS
 
    Changes and amendments to this Agreement including this Clause 15 shall be made in writing.
