SECTION 5. Costs and Expenses. The Borrowers acknowledge and agree that their payment obligations set forth in Section 10.04 of the Credit Agreement include the costs and expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent in connection with the preparation, execution and delivery of this Agreement and any other documentation contemplated hereby, including, but not limited to, the reasonable fees and disbursements of Kaye Scholer LLP, counsel to the Administrative Agent.
