The ABL Agent, on behalf of the ABL Secured Parties, agrees that no Shared Collateral Agent nor any Shared Collateral Secured Party shall incur any liability as a result of a sale, lease, license, application, or other disposition of all or any portion of the Canadian Pledge Collateral or Proceeds thereof, pursuant to the Shared Collateral Documents, so long as such disposition is conducted in accordance with mandatory provisions of applicable law and does not breach the provisions of this Agreement.

(a)    If the ABL Agent or any ABL Lender is required in any Insolvency Proceeding or otherwise to turn over or otherwise pay to the estate of any Loan Party or any other Person any payment made in satisfaction of all or any portion of the ABL Obligations (an “ABL Recovery”), then the ABL Obligations shall be reinstated to the extent of such ABL Recovery. If this Agreement shall have been terminated prior to such ABL Recovery, this Agreement shall be reinstated in full force and effect in the event of such ABL Recovery, and such prior termination shall not diminish, release, discharge, impair, or otherwise affect the obligations of the Parties from such date of reinstatement.

-33-

 

objection to such DIP Financing or use of cash collateral or to the Liens securing the same on the grounds of a failure to provide “adequate protection” for the Liens of the Shared Collateral Agents securing the Shared Collateral Obligations or on any other grounds (and will not request any adequate protection solely as a result of such DIP Financing or use of cash collateral that is ABL Collateral except as permitted by Section 6.3(b)), so long as (i) the Shared Collateral Agents retain their Lien on the ABL Collateral to secure the Shared Collateral Obligations (in each case, including Proceeds thereof arising after the commencement of the case under the Bankruptcy Code), (ii) the terms of the DIP Financing do not compel the applicable Loan Party to seek confirmation of a specific plan of reorganization for which all or substantially all of the material terms of such plan are set forth in the DIP Financing documentation or related document; (iii) all Liens on the ABL Collateral securing any such DIP Financing shall be senior to or on a parity with the Liens of the ABL Agent and the ABL Secured Parties securing the ABL Obligations on the ABL Collateral, and (iv) the amount of ABL Obligations as a result of such DIP Financing may be increased but in no event by no more than $50.0 million in excess of the maximum commitments under the ABL Credit Agreement prior to the commencement of the applicable Insolvency Proceeding.

In addition, the ABL Agent and Shared Collateral Agents shall not seek any relief from the automatic stay with respect to any ABLShared Collateral without providing 3 days’ prior written notice to the other, unless such period is agreed by each of the ABL Agent and the Shared Collateral Agents to be modified or unless (i) in the case of ABL Collateral, the ABL Agent makes a good faith determination that either (A) the ABL Collateral will decline speedily in value or (B) the failure to take any action will have a reasonable likelihood of endangering the ABL Agent’s or the Shared Collateral Agents’ ability to realize upon the ABL Collateral. and (ii) in the case of Canadian Pledge Collateral, the Term Agent (prior to the Discharge of Term Obligations in respect of Term B-4 Loans and thereafter the Authorized Shared Collateral Agent) makes a good faith determination that either (A) the Canadian Pledge Collateral will decline speedily in value or (B) the failure to take any action will have a reasonable likelihood of endangering the Term Agent’s, any other Shared Collateral Agent’s or the ABL Agent’s ability to realize upon the Canadian Pledge Collateral

The ABL Agent, on behalf of the ABL Secured Parties, agrees that, prior to the Discharge of Shared Collateral Obligations, none of them shall contest (or support any other Person contesting) (a) any request by a Shared Collateral Agent or any Shared Collateral Secured Party for adequate protection of its interest in the Canadian Pledge Collateral or (b) any objection by a Shared Collateral Agent or any Shared Collateral Secured Party to any motion, relief, action, or proceeding based on a claim by a Shared Collateral Agent or any Shared Collateral Secured Party that its interests in the Canadian Pledge Collateral are not adequately protected (or any other similar request under any law applicable to an Insolvency Proceeding), so long as any Liens granted to a Shared Collateral Agent as adequate protection of its interests are subject to this Agreement.
(b)    Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions in this Section 6.3, in any Insolvency Proceeding if the ABL Secured Parties (or any subset thereof) are granted adequate protection with respect to the ABL Collateral in the form of additional collateral (even if such collateral is not of a type which would otherwise have constituted ABL Collateral), then the ABL Agent, on behalf of itself and the ABL Lenders, agrees that the Shared Collateral Agents, on behalf of itself or any of the Shared Collateral Secured Parties, may seek or request (and the ABL Secured Parties will not oppose such request) adequate protection with respect to its interests in such ABL Collateral in the form of a Lien on the same additional collateral, which Lien will be subordinated to the Liens securing the ABL Obligations on the same basis as the other Liens of the Shared Collateral Agents on the ABL Collateral.
Section 6.4    Asset Sales. Prior to the Discharge of ABL Obligations, the Shared Collateral Agents agree, on behalf of themselves and the Shared Collateral Secured Parties, that they will not oppose any sale consented to by the ABL Agent of any ABL Collateral pursuant to Section 363(f) of the Bankruptcy Code (or any similar provision under the law applicable to any Insolvency Proceeding) so long as the proceeds of such sale are applied in accordance with this Agreement.

Section 6.5    Separate Grants of Security and Separate Classification. Each Shared Collateral Secured Party, the Shared Collateral Agents, each ABL Secured Party and the ABL Agent acknowledges and agrees that (i) the grants of Liens pursuant to the ABL Documents, the Term Documents, the Notes Documents and the Additional Pari Passu Documents constitute separate and distinct grants of Liens and (ii) because of, among other things, their differing rights in the ABLShared Collateral, each of the TermABL Obligations, the NotesTerm Obligations and

-35-

 

the Additional Pari Passu Obligations are fundamentally different from the ABL Obligationsone another and must be separately classified in any plan of reorganization proposed or adopted in an Insolvency Proceeding.
