2.2.1 Mandatory Prepayment. (a) If at any time the Aggregate Total Outstandings (calculated as of the most recent Computation Date) exceeds either the Aggregate Commitment or the Borrowing Base, then (A) the US-Borrower shall be obligated to immediately repay Advances under the US Subfacility, and (B) each Non-US Borrower shall be jointly and severally obligated to immediately repay Advances under all Subfacilities, in each case in a principal amount that is, together with any other Borrower’s repayment pursuant to this sentence, sufficient to eliminate any such excess; provided that no Non-US Borrower shall be required to repay any amount to the extent prohibited by applicable law. If at any time (in each case measured as of the most recent Computation Date) (i) the Aggregate Total Outstandings in respect of the Euro Subfacility exceed the Euro Subfacility Limit, (iii) the Aggregate Total Outstandings in respect of the Singapore Subfacility exceed the Singapore Subfacility Limit, (iv) the Aggregate Total Outstandings in respect of the Hong Kong Subfacility exceed the Hong Kong Subfacility Limit, or (v) the Aggregate Total Outstandings under the Japan Subfacility exceed the Japan Subfacility Limit, each Borrower that is a party to such affected Subfacility shall be jointly and severally obligated to repay Advances under the affected Subfacility in an amount or amounts sufficient to eliminate any such excess. Until such time as an excess in an affected Subfacility is so eliminated, the Aggregate Commitment shall be reduced by an amount equal to the Dollar Amount of the excess of such affected Subfacility.

given the Administrative Agent a Continuation Notice (as defined below) requesting that, at the end of such Interest Period, such Advance continue as an Advance for the same or another Interest Period.

Any such Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent irrevocable notice, substantially in the form of Exhibit C attached hereto, (a “Continuation Notice”) of each continuation of an Advance not later than 10:00 a.m. (London time) at least three Business Days prior to the date of the requested continuation to the Administrative Agent, specifying:
