Each Class C Note issued in the form of a Global Note shall be in the form of Exhibit C-1 attached hereto, and each Class C Note issued in the form of a Definitive Note shall be in the form of Exhibit C-2 attached hereto. All Notes in the same Class shall be in substantially identical form except for differences in registration information and denomination and such other variations as may be permitted by this Indenture.
 
(a)           Global Notes.  The Notes are being offered and sold by the Issuer to the Initial Purchaser pursuant to the Note Purchase Agreement.
 
Notes offered and sold to QIBs in reliance on Rule 144A shall be issued initially in the form of Rule 144A Global Notes, which shall be delivered by the Trustee to the Security Depository or pursuant to the Security Depository’s instructions, and registered in the name of the Security Depository or a nominee of the Security Depository, duly executed by the Issuer and authenticated by the Trustee as hereinafter provided.  The aggregate principal amount of the Rule 144A Global Notes may from time to time be increased (up to the maximum authorized amount) or decreased by adjustments made on the records of the Trustee and the Security Depository or its nominee as hereinafter provided.  The Trustee shall not be liable for any error or omission by the Security Depository in making such record adjustm ents, and the records of the Trustee shall be controlling with regard to the outstanding principal amount of Rule 144A Global Notes hereunder absent manifest error.

Members of, or participants in, the Security Depository shall have no rights either under this Indenture with respect to any Global Note held on their behalf by the Security Depository or by the Trustee as custodian for the Security Depository or under such Global Notes, and the Security Depository may be treated by the Issuer, the Trustee and any agent of the Issuer or the Trustee as the absolute owner of such Global Notes for all purposes whatsoever.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall prevent the Issuer, the Trustee or any agent of the Issuer or the Trustee from giving effect to any written certification, proxy or other authorization furnished by the Security Depository or impair, as between the Security Depository and its Agent Members, the ope ration of customary practices of such Security Depository governing the exercise of the rights of an owner of a beneficial interest in any Global Notes.
 
So long as there are no Definitive Notes Outstanding, the Note Registrar and the Trustee shall treat the Security Depository for all purposes of this Indenture (including the payment of principal of and interest on the Notes and the giving of instructions or directions hereunder) as the sole Holder of the Notes, and shall have no obligation to the Note Owners.
 
The rights of Note Owners shall be exercised only through the Security Depository and shall be limited to those established by law and agreements between such Note Owners and the Security Depository and/or the Agent Members.  The initial Security Depository will make book-entry transfers among the Agent Members and receive and transmit payments of principal of and interest on the Notes to such Agent Members with respect to such Global Notes.
 
Whenever this Indenture requires or permits actions to be taken based upon instructions or directions of Holders of Notes evidencing a specified percentage of the Outstanding amount of the Notes, the Security Depository shall be deemed to represent such percentage only to the extent that it (i) has received instructions to such effect from Note Owners and/or Agent Members owning or representing, respectively, such required percentage of the beneficial interest in the Notes and (ii) has delivered such instructions to the Trustee.
 
(c)           Definitive Notes.  Except as provided in Section 2.05, owners of beneficial interests in Global Notes will not be entitled to receive physical delivery of certificated definitive, fully registered Notes (any such Notes, the “Definitive Notes”).  The Definitive Notes shall be typewritten, printed, lithographed or engraved or produced by any combination of these methods, all as determined by the officers executing such Notes, as evidenced by their execution of such Notes.
 
(d)           Each Note issued under this Indenture shall be in all respects equally and ratably secured with each other Note by the Collateral Granted by the Issuer hereunder.  Each Note shall be entitled to the benefits hereof, without preference, priority or distinction on account of the actual time or times of authentication and delivery, all in accordance with the terms and provisions of this Indenture.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, all cash amounts shall be applied by the Trustee in accordance with the express provisions hereof and (I) the rights of the Holders of the Class B Notes (1) to receive payments of interest in respect of the Class B Notes on any Payment Date, on the Stated Maturity Date or on the Redemption Date shall be subordi nate to the rights of the Holders of Class A Notes to receive payment of interest on the Class A Notes and to certain other payments as set forth in Section 13.03 and others entitled to receive payments thereunder and (2) to receive payments of principal in respect of the Class B Notes on
 
 
- 4 -

 

any Payment Date, on the Stated Maturity Date or on the Redemption Date shall be subordinate to the rights of the Holders of the Class A Notes to receive principal paid on the Class A Notes and to certain other payments, as set forth in Section 13.03 and others entitled to receive payments thereunder and (II) the rights of the Holders of the Class C Notes (1) to receive payments of interest in respect of the Class C Notes on any Payment Date, on the Stated Maturity Date or on the Redemption Date shall be subordinate to the rights of the Holders of Class A Notes and Class B Notes to receive payment of interest on the Class A Notes and Class B Notes, as applicable, and to certain other payments as set forth in Section 13.03 and others entitled to receive payments thereunder and (2) to receive payments of principal in respect of the Class C Notes on any Payment Date, on the Stated Maturity Date or on the Redemption Date shall be subordinate to the rights of the Holders of the Class A Notes and Class B Notes to receive principal paid on the Class A Notes and Class B Notes, as applicable, and to certain other payments, as set forth in  Section 13.03 and others entitled to receive payments thereunder.
 
Section 2.03                      Denomination.  The aggregate stated principal amount of the Class A Notes that may be authenticated and delivered under this Indenture is $74,195,000, the aggregate stated principal amount of the Class B Notes that may be authenticated and delivered under this Indenture is $15,661,000 and the aggregate stated principal amount of the Class C Notes that may be authenticated and delivered under this Indenture is $2,838,000, except for Notes of the same Class authenticated and delivered upon registration of transfer, or in exchange for, or in lieu of, other Notes pursuant to Sections 2.06, 2.08 or 10.05.  The Notes shall be issuable only as registered Notes without coupons in the denominations of at least $100,000 with respect to any Note and multiples of $1,000 for any amount in excess thereof; provided that the foregoing shall not restrict or prevent the transfer, in accordance with Sections 2.06 and 2.07, of any “stub” Note with a remaining Outstanding Note Balance of less than $100,000 with respect to any Note.
 
Section 2.05                      Execution, Authentication, Delivery and Dating.  The Notes shall be executed on behalf of the Issuer by the manual or facsimile signature of one of its authorized officers.  Notes bearing the manual or facsimile signatures of individuals who were at any time authorized officers of the Issuer shall bind the Issuer, notwithstanding that such individuals or any of them have ceased to hold such offices subsequent to the authentication or delivery of such Notes.
 
Each Note shall be dated as of the date of its authentication.  No Note shall be entitled to any benefit under this Indenture or be valid or obligatory for any purpose, unless there appears on such Note a certificate of authentication substantially in the form provided for herein executed by the Trustee upon receipt of an Issuer Order or by any Authenticating Agent by the manual signature of one of its authorized officers, and such certificate upon any Note shall be conclusive evidence, and the only evidence, that such Note has been duly authenticated and delivered hereunder.
 
Section 2.07                      Issuance of Definitive Notes.  If Book-Entry Notes have been issued with respect to any Class and (a) the Issuer advises the Trustee that the Security Depository is no longer willing or able to discharge properly its responsibilities with respect to such Class and the Trustee or the Issuer is unable to locate a qualified successor,  (b) the Issuer at its option elects to terminate the book-entry system through DTC, or (c) after the occurrence of an Event of Default, Noteholders of not less than 50% of the Outstanding Note Balance of Notes of any Class advise the
 
 
 
- 5 -

 
 

Trustee and DTC that it is no longer in the best interests of such Class to have the Notes of such Class in book-entry form, then upon surrender to the Trustee of any such Notes by the Security Depository, accompanied by registration instructions from the Security Depository for registration of Definitive Notes, the Issuer shall execute and the Trustee shall authenticate and the Note Registrar shall deliver such Definitive Notes to the applicable Noteholders.  Neither the Issuer nor the Trustee shall be liable for any delay in delivery of such instructions and may conclusively rely on, and shall be protected in relying on, such instructions. The Trustee shall recognize the Holders of such Definitive Notes as Noteholders hereunder.
 
Section 2.08                      Registration, Registration of Transfer and Exchange.
 
(a)           The Issuer shall cause to be kept a register (the “Note Register”) at the office of an agent (the “Note Registrar”), in accordance with Section 7.13, and in which, subject to such reasonable regulations as it may prescribe, the Note Registrar shall, on behalf of the Issuer, provide for the registration, issuance and ownership of the Notes and the registration of transfers of the Notes.  The Trustee is hereby appointed the initial Note Registrar.  Each Noteholder and, if the Note Registrar is someone other than the Trustee, the Trustee shall have the right to examine the Note Register at all reasonable times and to rely conclusively upon an Officer’s Certificate of the Note Registrar as to the names and addresses of the Noteholders and the principal amounts and numbers of such Notes as held.
 
(b)           The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any jurisdiction.  Consequently, the Notes are not transferable other than pursuant to Rule 144A or another exemption from registration.  Each Person who has or who acquires any Ownership Interest in a Note shall be deemed by the acceptance or acquisition of such Ownership Interest to have agreed to be bound by the provisions of this Section 2.06.
 
(c)           With respect to any Definitive Note, at the option of the Noteholder thereof, Notes may be exchanged for other Notes of any authorized denominations (together with any “stub note” reflecting the remaining principal balance of such Note(s) that is less than the minimum authorized denomination), aggregate principal amount and Stated Maturity Date, upon surrender of the Notes to be exchanged at the Corporate Trust Office.  Whenever any Notes are so surrendered for exchange, the Issuer shall execute, and the Trustee or its agents shall authenticate and deliver, the Notes which the Noteholder making the exchange is entitled to receive.
 
(d)           With respect to any Definitive Note, any Definitive Note presented or surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange shall be duly endorsed, or be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Trustee duly executed.  All Notes issued upon any registration of transfer or exchange of Notes shall be the valid obligations of the Issuer, evidencing the same rights, and entitled to the same benefits under this Indenture, as the Notes surrendered upon such registration of transfer or exchange.  No service charge shall be charged to a Noteholder for any registration of transfer or exchange of Notes, but the Issuer and the Trustee may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any registration of transfer or exchange of Notes.
 
 
 
- 6 -

 
 

(i)           Limitation on Transfer and Exchange.  i) The transfer and exchange of Global Notes or beneficial interests therein shall be effected through the Security Depository, in accordance with this Indenture and the procedures of the Security Depository therefor, which shall include restrictions on transfer comparable to those set forth herein to the extent required by the Securities Act.  Beneficial interests in a Global Note may be transferred to persons who take delivery thereof in the form of a beneficial interest in the same Global Note in accordance with the transfer restrictions set forth in the legend in subsection (d)(xii) of Section 2.07. div>
 
(e)           Transfer and Exchange from Definitive Notes to Definitive Notes.  When Definitive Notes are presented by a Holder to the Note Registrar with a request:
 
(i)           to register the transfer of Definitive Notes in the form of other Definitive Notes; or
 
(ii)           to exchange such Definitive Notes for an equal principal amount of Definitive Notes of other authorized denominations, the Note Registrar shall register the transfer or make the exchange as requested; provided, however, that the Definitive Notes presented or surrendered for register of transfer or exchange:

Notwithstanding anything in any Transaction Document to the contrary, effective from the date of commencement of discussions with respect to the transactions contemplated by such documents, all parties hereto and the Noteholders may disclose to any and all Persons, without limitation of any kind, the U.S. Federal income tax treatment and tax structure of the Notes and the transactions contemplated hereby and all materials of any kind, including tax opinions or other tax analyses, if any, that are provided to such Persons regarding such tax treatment.

(c)           The ownership of Notes shall be proved by the Note Register.
 
(d)           Any request, demand, authorization, direction, notice, consent, waiver or other action by the Noteholder of any Note shall bind the Noteholder of every Note issued upon the registration of transfer thereof or in exchange therefor or in lieu thereof, in respect of anything done, omitted or suffered to be done by the Trustee or the Issuer in reliance thereon, whether or not notation of such action is made upon such Note.
 
Section 14.03                                Notices.  Any request, demand, authorization, direction, notice, consent, waiver or Act of Noteholders or the Control Party or other document provided or permitted by this Indenture to be made upon, given or furnished to, or filed with any party hereto shall be sufficient for every purpose hereunder if in writing and telecopied (with written confirmation of receipt), mailed b y registered mail, overnight bonded courier or personally delivered, and addressed to the appropriate address below (or such other address as may be provided to the other parties in writing from time to time):

Section 14.04                                Notices to Noteholders; Waiver.  Where this Indenture provides for notice to Noteholders of any event, such notice shall be sufficiently given (unless otherwise herein expressly provided) if in writing and telecopied (with written confirmation of receipt from each addressee), mailed by registered mail, overnight bonded courier or delivered personally to each Noteholder affected by such event, at its address as it appears on the Note Register, not later than the latest date, and not earlier than the earliest date, prescribed for the giving of such notice.  In any case in which notice to Noteholders is given by mail, neither the failure to mail such notice, nor any defect in any notice so mailed, to any particular Noteholder shall affect the sufficiency of such notice with respect to other Noteholders, and any notice which is mailed in the manner herein provided shall conclusively be presumed to have been duly given.
 
Where this Indenture provides for notice in any manner, such notice may be waived in writing by any Person entitled to receive such notice, either before or after the event, and such waiver shall be the equivalent of such notice.  Waivers of notice by Noteholders shall be filed with the Trustee, but such filing shall not be a condition precedent to the validity of any action taken in reliance upon such waiver.
 
In case, by reason of the suspension of regular mail service as a result of a strike, work stoppage or similar activity, it shall be impractical to mail notice of any event to the Noteholders when such notice is required to be given pursuant to any provision of this Indenture, then any manner of giving such notice as shall be satisfactory to the Trustee shall be deemed to be a sufficient giving of such notice.
 
Section 14.05                                Successors and Assigns. All covenants and agreements in this Indenture by the Issuer shall bind its successors and assigns, whether so expressed or not.
 
Section 14.06                                Severability; No Waiver.  In case any provision in this Indenture or in the Notes shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby.  No failure on the part of the Trustee, the Control Party or any Noteholder to exercise, and no delay in exercising, any right hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partia l exercise of any right hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right.  The remedies herein provided are cumulative and not exclusive of any remedies provided by law.
 
 
 
- 71 -

 
 
Section 14.07                                Benefits of Indenture Limited to Parties and Express Third Party Beneficiaries. Nothing in this Indenture or in the Notes, express or implied, shall give to any Person, other than the parties hereto, the Noteholders and any of their successors hereunder, any benefit or any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under this Indenture or under the Notes.  Each of the Noteholders are express third party beneficiaries of this Indenture each entitled to enforce the provisions hereof as if a party hereto.
 
Section 14.08                                Legal Holidays. In any case in which the date of any Payment Date, or the Stated Maturity Date of any Note shall not be a Business Day, then (notwithstanding any other provision of the Notes or this Indenture) payment of principal or interest need not be made on such date, but may be made on the next succeeding Business Day with the same force and effect as if made on the nominal date of any such Stated Mat urity Date or Payment Date.
 
Section 14.09                                Governing Law; Waiver of Jury Trial; Consent to Jurisdiction.
 
(a)           This Indenture and each Note shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements made and to be performed therein, except to the extent that the perfection or effect of perfection of the security interests granted hereunder are governed by the laws of a jurisdiction other than the State of New York.  Section 5-1401 and Section 5-1402 of the New York General Obligations Law shall be applicable.
 
(b)           The Issuer hereby agrees to the jurisdiction of any federal court located within the State of New York, and waives personal service of any and all process upon it and consents that all such service of process be made by registered mail directed to the Issuer at the address set forth in Section 14.03 hereof and service so made shall be deemed to be completed five (5) days after the same shall have been deposited in the U.S. mails, postage prepaid.  With respect to the foregoing consent to jurisdiction, the Issuer hereby waives any objection based on forum non conveniens, and any objection to venue of any action instituted hereunder and consents to the granting of such legal or equitable relief as is deemed appropriate by the court.
 
(c)           The Issuer hereby waives any right to have a jury participate in resolving any dispute, whether sounding in contract, tort, or otherwise among the parties hereto or otherwise arising out of, connected with, related to, or incidental to the relationship between them in connection with this Indenture.  Instead, any dispute resolved in court will be resolved in a bench trial without a jury.  Nothing in this Section 14.09 shall affect the right of the Trustee, the Control Party or any Noteholder to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by law or to bring any action or proceeding against t he Issuer or its property in the courts of any other jurisdiction.
