Effect on Loan Documents.

(a)The Credit Agreement and each of the other Loan Documents, as amended hereby, shall be and remain in full force and effect in accordance with their respective terms and hereby are ratified and confirmed in all respects.

Except as expressly set forth herein, the Credit Agreement and other Loan Documents shall remain unchanged and in full force and effect. The amendments, consents, modifications and other agreements set forth herein are limited to the specifics hereof, shall not apply with respect to any facts or occurrences other than those on which the same are based, and except as expressly set forth herein, shall neither excuse any future non- compliance with the Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document, nor operate as a waiver of any Default or Event of Default.

(b)The Borrower acknowledges and agrees that neither the execution nor the delivery by the Administrative Agent or the Lenders of this Amendment shall (a) be deemed to create a course of dealing or otherwise obligate the Administrative Agent or the sole Lender to grant other modifications of the terms of the Credit Agreement under the same or similar circumstances in the future, or (b) be deemed to create an implied waiver of any right or remedy of the Administrative Agent or the Lenders with respect to any term or provision of any Loan Document (including any term or provision relating to the occurrence of a Material Adverse Effect).

(c)Upon and after the Effective Date, each reference in the Credit Agreement to “this Agreement”, “hereunder”, “herein”, “hereof” or words of like import referring to the Credit Agreement, and each reference in the other Loan Documents to “the Credit Agreement”, “thereunder”, “therein”, “thereof” or words of like import referring to the Credit Agreement, shall mean and be a reference to the Credit Agreement as modified and amended hereby.

(d)To the extent that any terms and conditions in any of the Loan Documents shall contradict or be in conflict with any terms or conditions of the Credit Agreement, after giving effect to this Amendment, such terms and conditions are hereby deemed modified or amended accordingly to reflect the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement and the Loan Documents as modified or amended hereby.

(e)
This Amendment is a Loan Document.

(f)Unless the context of this Amendment clearly requires otherwise, references to the plural include the singular, references to the singular include the plural, the terms “includes” and “including” are not limiting, and the term “or” has, except where otherwise indicated, the inclusive meaning represented by the phrase “and/or”.

8.Entire Agreement. This Amendment, and terms and provisions hereof, the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents constitute the entire understanding and agreement between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous amendments or understandings with respect to the subject matter hereof, whether express or implied, oral or written and is the final expression and





agreement of the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof.

9.Reaffirmation of Obligations. Each of the Loan Parties hereby restates, ratifies and reaffirms its obligations under each Loan Document to which it is a party, effective as of the date hereof and amended hereby. The Loan Parties hereby further ratify and reaffirm the validity and enforceability of all of the Liens heretofore granted, pursuant to and in connection with the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement or any other Loan Document to the Administrative Agent on behalf and for the benefit of the Lenders and the Issuing Lender, as collateral security for the obligations under the Loan Documents, in accordance with their respective terms, and acknowledges that all of such Liens, and all collateral heretofore pledged as security for such obligations, continues to be and remain collateral for such obligations from and after the date hereof.

10.Severability. In case any provision in this Amendment shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be severable from the remainder of this Amendment and the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby.

11.Successors and Assigns. This Amendment shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and to the benefit of their respective successors and assigns. No third party beneficiaries are intended in connection with this Amendment.
