(e)           Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to (x) the date of any Borrowing consisting of Eurodollar Rate Advances or (y) 12:00 Noon (New York City time) on the date of any Borrowing consisting of Base Rate Advances that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such portion available to the Administrative Agent on the date of such Borrowing in accordance with subsection (a) of this Section 2.02 and the Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrower on such date a corresponding amount.  If and to the extent that such Lender shall not have so made such Pro Rata Share available to the Administrative Agent, such Lender and the Borrower severally agree to repay or pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount and to pay interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is made available to the Borrower until the date such amount is repaid or paid to the Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of the Borrower, the interest rate applicable at such time under Section 2.07 to Advances comprising such Borrowing and (ii) in the case of such Lender, the Federal Funds Rate.  If such Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent such corresponding amount, such amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Advance as part of such Borrowing for all purposes.
 
 
40

 
 
(f)           The failure of any Lender to make the Advance to be made by it as part of any Borrowing shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligation, if any, hereunder to make its Advance on the date of such Borrowing, but no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make the Advance to be made by such other Lender on the date of any Borrowing.
 
SECTION 2.03.       Issuance of and Drawings and Reimbursement Under Letters of Credit.  (a)  Request for Issuance.  Each Letter of Credit shall be issued upon notice, given not later than 12:00 Noon (New York City time) on the fifth Business Day prior to the date of the proposed issuance of such Letter of Credit, by the Borrower to any Issuing Bank, which shall give to the Administrative Agent prompt notice thereof by telex, telecopier or e-mail or by means of the Platform.  Each such notice of issuance of a Letter of Credit (a “Notice of Issuance”) shall be by facsimile, confirmed in writing via overnight courier for delivery on the immediately succeeding Business Day, in each case in the form of Exhibit C attached hereto and specifying therein the requested (i) date of such issuance (which shall be a Business Day), (ii) Available Amount of such Letter of Credit, (iii) expiration date of such Letter of Credit, (iv) name and address of the beneficiary of such Letter of Credit and (v) form of such Letter of Credit, and shall be accompanied by such application and agreement for letter of credit as such Issuing Bank may specify to the Borrower for use in connection with such requested Letter of Credit (a “Letter of Credit Agreement”).  If the requested form of such Letter of Credit is acceptable to such Issuing Bank in its sole discretion, such Issuing Bank will, upon fulfillment of the applicable conditions set forth in Article III, make such Letter of Credit available to the Borrower at its office referred to in Section 9.02 or as otherwise agreed with the Borrower in connection with such issuance.  In the event and to the extent that the provisions of any Letter of Credit Agreement shall conflict with this Agreement, the provisions of this Agreement shall govern.  The Existing Letters of Credit shall upon the Closing Date be deemed to be a Letter of Credit under this Agreement.  Upon the issuance of a Letter of Credit, each Revolving Credit Lender shall be deemed to have purchased a participation therein from Issuing Bank in an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share of the amount of such Letter of Credit.
 
(b)           [Intentionally Omitted].
 
 
41

 
 
(c)           Drawing and Reimbursement.  The payment by any Issuing Bank of a draft drawn under any Letter of Credit shall constitute for all purposes of this Agreement the making by such Issuing Bank of a Letter of Credit Advance, which shall be a Base Rate Advance, in the amount of such draft.  Upon written demand by any Issuing Bank with an outstanding Letter of Credit Advance, with a copy of such demand to the Administrative Agent, each Revolving Credit Lender shall purchase from such Issuing Bank, and such Issuing Bank shall sell and assign to each such Revolving Credit Lender, such Revolving Credit Lender’s Pro Rata Share of such outstanding Letter of Credit Advance as of the date of such purchase, by making available for the account of its Applicable Lending Office to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Issuing Bank, by deposit to the Administrative Agent’s Account, in same day funds, an amount equal to the portion of the outstanding principal amount of such Letter of Credit Advance to be purchased by such Revolving Credit Lender.  Promptly after receipt thereof, the Administrative Agent shall transfer such funds to such Issuing Bank.  The Borrower hereby agrees to each such sale and assignment.  Each Revolving Credit Lender agrees to purchase its Pro Rata Share of an outstanding Letter of Credit Advance on (i) the Business Day on which demand therefor is made by the Issuing Bank which made such Advance, provided that notice of such demand is given not later than 11:00 A.M. (New York City time) on such Business Day, or (ii) the first Business Day next succeeding such demand if notice of such demand is given after such time.  Upon any such assignment by an Issuing Bank to any Revolving Credit Lender of a portion of a Letter of Credit Advance, such Issuing Bank represents and warrants to such other Revolving Credit Lender that such Issuing Bank is the legal and beneficial owner of such interest being assigned by it, free and clear of any liens, but makes no other representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility with respect to such Letter of Credit Advance, the Loan Documents or any Loan Party.  If and to the extent that any Revolving Credit Lender shall not have so made the amount of such Letter of Credit Advance available to the Administrative Agent, such Revolving Credit Lender agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such amount together with interest thereon, for each day from the date of demand by such Issuing Bank until the date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent, at the Federal Funds Rate for its account or the account of such Issuing Bank, as applicable.  If such Revolving Credit Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent such amount for the account of such Issuing Bank on any Business Day, such amount so paid in respect of principal shall constitute a Letter of Credit Advance made by such Revolving Credit Lender on such Business Day for purposes of this Agreement, and the outstanding principal amount of the Letter of Credit Advance made by such Issuing Bank shall be reduced by such amount on such Business Day.
 
(d)           Failure to Make Letter of Credit Advances.  The failure of any Revolving Credit Lender to make the Letter of Credit Advance to be made by it on the date specified in Section 2.03(c) shall not relieve any other Revolving Credit Lender of its obligation hereunder to make its Letter of Credit Advance on such date, but no Revolving Credit Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Revolving Credit Lender to make the Letter of Credit Advance to be made by such other Revolving Credit Lender on such date.

(G)           any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, including, without limitation, any other circumstance that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, the Borrower or a guarantor;

(b)           If any Lender Party determines that either (i) the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any law or regulation or (ii) the compliance with any guideline or request from any central bank or other governmental authority (whether or not having the force of law) adopted or made after the date hereof results in any change in the amount of capital or liquidity required or expected to be maintained by such Lender Party or any corporation controlling such Lender Party and that the amount of such capital or liquidity is increased by or based upon the existence of such Lender Party’s commitment to lend or to issue or participate in Letters of Credit hereunder and other commitments of such type or the issuance or maintenance of or participation in the Letters of Credit (or similar contingent obligations), then, upon demand by such Lender Party or such corporation (with a copy of such demand to the Administrative Agent), the Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender Party, from time to time as specified by such Lender Party, additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Lender Party in the light of such circumstances, to the extent that such Lender Party reasonably determines such increase in capital to be allocable to the existence of such Lender Party’s commitment to lend or to issue or participate in Letters of Credit hereunder or to the issuance or maintenance of or participation in any Letters of Credit.  A certificate as to such amounts submitted to the Borrower by such Lender Party shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.

(c)           If, with respect to any Eurodollar Rate Advances, the Required Lenders notify the Administrative Agent that the Eurodollar Rate for any Interest Period for such Advances will not adequately reflect the cost to such Lenders of making, funding or maintaining their Eurodollar Rate Advances for such Interest Period, the Administrative Agent shall forthwith so notify the Borrower and the Lenders, whereupon (i) each such Eurodollar Rate Advance will automatically, on the last day of the then existing Interest Period therefor, Convert into a Base Rate Advance and (ii) the obligation of the Lenders to make, or to Convert Advances into, Eurodollar Rate Advances shall be suspended until the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrower that such Lenders have determined that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist.
 
(d)           Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if after the date of this Agreement the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any law or regulation shall make it unlawful, or any central bank or other governmental authority shall assert that it is unlawful, for any Lender or its Eurodollar Lending Office to perform its obligations hereunder to make Eurodollar Rate Advances or to continue to fund or maintain Eurodollar Rate Advances hereunder, then, on notice thereof and demand therefor by such Lender to the Borrower through the Administrative Agent, (i) each Eurodollar Rate Advance will automatically, upon such demand, Convert into a Base Rate Advance and (ii) the obligation of the Lenders to make, or to Convert Advances into, Eurodollar Rate Advances shall be suspended until the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrower that such Lender has determined that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist; provided, however, that, before making any such demand, such Lender agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate a different Eurodollar Lending Office if the making of such a designation would allow such Lender or its Eurodollar Lending Office to continue to perform its obligations to make Eurodollar Rate Advances or to continue to fund or maintain Eurodollar Rate Advances and would not, in the judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender.
 
(e)           For purposes of this Section 2.10, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and all requests, rules, regulations, publications, orders, guidelines and directives thereunder or issued in connection therewith, and all requests, rules, guidelines or directives promulgated by the Bank of International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor or similar authority) of the United States or foreign regulatory authorities, in each case pursuant to Basel III, shall be deemed to have been adopted and gone into effect after the date hereof regardless of when adopted, implemented, enacted or issued.
 
SECTION 2.11.            Payments and Computations.  (a) The Borrower shall make each payment hereunder and under the Notes, irrespective of any right of counterclaim or set-off (except as otherwise provided in Section 2.13), not later than 12:00 Noon (New York City time) on the day when due in U.S. dollars to the Administrative Agent at the Administrative Agent’s Account in same day funds, with payments being received by the Administrative Agent after such time being deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day.  The Administrative Agent will promptly thereafter cause like funds to be distributed (i) if such payment by the Borrower is in respect of principal, interest, commitment fees or any other Obligation then payable hereunder and under the Notes to more than one Lender Party, to such Lender Parties for the account of their respective Applicable Lending Offices ratably in accordance with the amounts of such respective Obligations then payable to such Lender Parties and (ii) if such payment by the Borrower is in respect of any Obligation then payable hereunder to one Lender Party, to such Lender Party for the account of its Applicable Lending Office, in each case to be applied in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.  Upon its acceptance of an Assignment and Acceptance and recording of the information contained therein in the Register pursuant to Section 9.07(d), from and after the effective date of such Assignment and Acceptance, the Administrative Agent shall make all payments hereunder and under the Notes in respect of the interest assigned thereby to the Lender Party assignee thereunder, and the parties to such Assignment and Acceptance shall make all appropriate adjustments in such payments for periods prior to such effective date directly between themselves.
 
 
50

 
 
(b)           The Borrower hereby authorizes each Lender Party and each of its Affiliates, if and to the extent payment owed to such Lender Party is not made when due hereunder or, in the case of a Lender, under the Note held by such Lender, to charge from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, against any or all of the Borrower’s accounts with such Lender Party any amount so due.
 
(c)           All computations of interest and of fees and Letter of Credit commissions shall be made by the Administrative Agent on the basis of a year of 360 days (provided however that Advances and other amounts bearing interest by reference to the Base Rate shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days, or 366 if applicable), in each case for the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such interest, fees or commissions are payable.  Each determination by the Administrative Agent of an interest rate, fee or commission hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.
 
(d)           Whenever any payment hereunder or under the Notes shall be stated to be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day, and such extension of time shall in such case be included in the computation of payment of interest or commitment fee, as the case may be; provided, however, that if such extension would cause payment of interest on or principal of Eurodollar Rate Advances to be made in the next following calendar month, such payment shall be made on the next preceding Business Day.
 
(e)           Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to any Lender Party hereunder that the Borrower will not make such payment in full, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Borrower has made such payment in full to the Administrative Agent on such date and the Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, cause to be distributed to each such Lender Party on such due date an amount equal to the amount then due such Lender Party.  If and to the extent the Borrower shall not have so made such payment in full to the Administrative Agent, each such Lender Party shall repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such amount distributed to such Lender Party together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is distributed to such Lender Party until the date such Lender Party repays such amount to the Administrative Agent, at the Federal Funds Rate.
 
 
51

 
 
(f)           Whenever any payment received by the Administrative Agent under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents is insufficient to pay in full all amounts due and payable to the Administrative Agent and the Lender Parties under or in respect of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents on any date, such payment shall be distributed by the Administrative Agent and applied by the Administrative Agent and the Lender Parties in the following order of priority:
 
(i)           first, to the payment of all of the fees, indemnification payments, costs and expenses that are due and payable to the Administrative Agent (solely in its capacity as Administrative Agent) under or in respect of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents on such date, ratably based upon the respective aggregate amounts of all such fees, indemnification payments, costs and expenses owing to the Administrative Agent on such date;
 
(ii)           second, to the payment of all of the fees, indemnification payments, costs and expenses that are due and payable to the Issuing Banks (solely in their respective capacities as such) under or in respect of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents on such date, ratably based upon the respective aggregate amounts of all such fees, indemnification payments, costs and expenses owing to the Issuing Banks on such date;
 
(iii)           third, to the payment of all of the indemnification payments, costs and expenses that are due and payable to the Lenders under Section 9.04 and any similar section of any of the other Loan Documents on such date, ratably based upon the respective aggregate amounts of all such indemnification payments, costs and expenses owing to the Lenders on such date;
 
(iv)           fourth, to the payment of all of the amounts that are due and payable to the Administrative Agent and the Lender Parties under Sections 2.10 and 2.12 on such date, ratably based upon the respective aggregate amounts thereof owing to the Administrative Agent and the Lender Parties on such date;
 
(v)           fifth, to the payment of all of the fees that are due and payable to the Lenders under Section 2.08(a) and (b)(i) on such date, ratably based upon the respective aggregate Commitments of the Lenders under the Facilities on such date;
 
(vi)           sixth, to the payment of all of the accrued and unpaid interest on the Obligations of the Borrower under or in respect of the Loan Documents that is due and payable to the Administrative Agent and the Lender Parties under Section 2.07(b) on such date, ratably based upon the respective aggregate amounts of all such interest owing to the Administrative Agent and the Lender Parties on such date;
 
(vii)           seventh, to the payment of all of the accrued and unpaid interest on the Advances that is due and payable to the Administrative Agent and the Lender Parties under Section 2.07(a) on such date, ratably based upon the respective aggregate amounts of all such interest owing to the Administrative Agent and the Lender Parties on such date;
 
(viii)           eighth, to the payment of the principal amount of all of the outstanding Advances and any reimbursement obligations that are due and payable to the Administrative Agent and the Lender Parties on such date, ratably based upon the respective aggregate amounts of all such principal and reimbursement obligations owing to the Administrative Agent and the Lender Parties on such date, and to deposit into the L/C Cash Collateral Account any contingent reimbursement obligations in respect of outstanding Letters of Credit to the extent required by Section 6.02; and
 
 
52

 
 
(ix)           ninth, to the payment of all other Obligations of the Loan Parties owing under or in respect of the Loan Documents that are due and payable to the Administrative Agent and the other Lender Parties on such date, ratably based upon the respective aggregate amounts of all such Obligations owing to the Administrative Agent and the other Lender Parties on such date.
 
SECTION 2.12.            Taxes.  (a)  Any and all payments by the Borrower hereunder or under the Notes shall be made, in accordance with Section 2.11, free and clear of and without deduction for any and all present or future taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings, and all liabilities with respect thereto, excluding, in the case of each Lender Party and the Administrative Agent, taxes that are imposed on its overall net income by the United States and taxes that are imposed on its overall net income (and franchise or other similar taxes imposed in lieu thereof) by the state or foreign jurisdiction under the laws of which such Lender Party or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, is organized or any political subdivision thereof and, in the case of each Lender Party, taxes that are imposed on its overall net income (and franchise or other similar taxes imposed in lieu thereof) by the state or foreign jurisdiction of such Lender Party’s Applicable Lending Office or any political subdivision thereof (all such non-excluded taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges, withholdings and liabilities in respect of payments hereunder or under the Notes being hereinafter referred to as “Taxes”).  If the Borrower shall be required by law to deduct any Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable hereunder or under any Note to any Lender Party or the Administrative Agent, (i) the sum payable by the Borrower shall be increased as may be necessary so that after the Borrower and the Administrative Agent have made all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.12) such Lender Party or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the Borrower shall make all such deductions and (iii) the Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant taxation authority or other authority in accordance with applicable law.
 
(b)           In addition, the Borrower shall pay any present or future stamp, documentary, excise, property, intangible, mortgage recording or similar taxes, charges or levies that arise from any payment made hereunder or under the Notes or from the execution, delivery or registration of, performance under, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement, or any other Loan Document (hereinafter referred to as “Other Taxes”).
 
(c)           The Borrower shall indemnify each Lender Party and the Administrative Agent for and hold them harmless against the full amount of Taxes and Other Taxes, and for the full amount of taxes of any kind imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section 2.12, imposed on or paid by such Lender Party or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) and any liability (including penalties, additions to tax, interest and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto.  This indemnification shall be made within 30 days from the date such Lender Party or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) makes written demand therefor.
 
 
53

 
 
(d)           Within 30 days after the date of any payment of Taxes, the Borrower shall furnish to the Administrative Agent, at its address referred to in Section 9.02, the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing such payment or, if such receipts are not obtainable, other evidence of such payments by the Borrower reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.  In the case of any payment hereunder or under the Notes by or on behalf of the Borrower through an account or branch outside the United States or by or on behalf of the Borrower by a payor that is not a United States person, if the Borrower determines that no Taxes are payable in respect thereof, the Borrower shall furnish, or shall cause such payor to furnish, to the Administrative Agent, at such address, an opinion of counsel acceptable to the Administrative Agent stating that such payment is exempt from Taxes.  For purposes of subsections (d) and (e) of this Section 2.12, the terms “United States” and “United States person” shall have the meanings specified in Section 7701 of the Internal Revenue Code.
 
(e)           Each Lender Party organized under the laws of a jurisdiction outside the United States shall, on or prior to the date of its execution and delivery of this Agreement in the case of each Initial Lender Party, and on the date of the Assignment and Acceptance pursuant to which it becomes a Lender Party in the case of each other Lender Party, and from time to time thereafter as requested in writing by the Borrower (but only so long thereafter as such Lender Party remains lawfully able to do so), provide each of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower with two original Internal Revenue Service forms W8 ECI or W8 BEN, as appropriate, or any successor or other form prescribed by the Internal Revenue Service, certifying that such Lender Party is exempt from or entitled to a reduced rate of United States withholding tax on payments pursuant to this Agreement or the Notes.  If the forms provided by a Lender Party at the time such Lender Party first becomes a party to this Agreement indicate a United States interest withholding tax rate in excess of zero, withholding tax at such rate shall be considered excluded from Taxes unless and until such Lender Party provides the appropriate forms certifying that a lesser rate applies, whereupon withholding tax at such lesser rate only shall be considered excluded from Taxes for periods governed by such forms; provided, however, that if, at the effective date of the Assignment and Acceptance pursuant to which a Lender Party becomes a party to this Agreement, the Lender Party assignor was entitled to payments under subsection (a) of this Section 2.12 in respect of United States withholding tax with respect to interest paid at such date, then, to such extent, the term Taxes shall include (in addition to withholding taxes that may be imposed in the future or other amounts otherwise includable in Taxes) United States withholding tax, if any, applicable with respect to the Lender Party assignee on such date.  If any form or document referred to in this subsection (e) requires the disclosure of information, other than information necessary to compute the tax payable and information required on the date hereof by Internal Revenue Service form W8 ECI or W8 BEN, that the applicable Lender Party reasonably considers to be confidential, such Lender Party shall give notice thereof to the Borrower and shall not be obligated to include in such form or document such confidential information.  Upon the request of the Borrower, any Lender that is a United States person and is not an exempt recipient for U.S. backup withholding purposes shall deliver to the Borrower two copies of Internal Revenue Service form W 9 (or any successor form).  If any governmental authority asserts that the Administrative Agent or the Borrower (as to the Borrower, with respect to Excluded FATCA Taxes only) did not properly withhold or backup withhold, as the case may be, any Tax or other amount from payments made to or for the account of any Lender due to such Lender’s failure to deliver such forms or documentation, such Lender shall indemnify the Administrative Agent and/or the Borrower (as to the Borrower, with respect to Excluded FATCA Taxes only) therefor, including all penalties and interest, any Taxes imposed by any jurisdiction on the amounts payable to the Administrative Agent or by the Borrower (as to the Borrower, with respect to Excluded FATCA Taxes only) under this Section 2.12, and costs and expenses (including all reasonable fees and disbursements of any law firm or other external counsel and the allocated cost of internal legal services and all disbursements of internal counsel) of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower (as to the Borrower, with respect to Excluded FATCA Taxes only).
 
 
54

 
 
(f)           For any period with respect to which a Lender Party has failed to provide the Borrower with the appropriate form described in subsection (e) above (other than if such failure is due to a change in law occurring after the date on which a form originally was required to be provided or if such form otherwise is not required under subsection (e) above), such Lender Party shall not be entitled to indemnification under subsection (a) or (c) of this Section 2.12 with respect to Taxes imposed by the United States by reason of such failure; provided, however, that should a Lender Party become subject to Taxes because of its failure to deliver a form required hereunder, the Borrower shall take such steps as such Lender Party shall reasonably request to assist such Lender Party to recover such Taxes.
 
(g)           Any Lender Party claiming any additional amounts payable pursuant to this Section 2.12 agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to change the jurisdiction of its Eurodollar Lending Office if the making of such a change would avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, any such additional amounts that may thereafter accrue and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender Party, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender Party.
 
(h)           If any Lender Party or the Administrative Agent receives a refund of Taxes or Other Taxes paid by the Borrower or for which the Borrower has indemnified any Lender Party or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, pursuant to this Section 2.12, then such Lender Party or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, shall pay such amount, net of any expenses incurred by such Lender Party or the Administrative Agent, to the Borrower within 30 days of the receipt of such Taxes or Other Taxes.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) the Borrower shall not be entitled to review the tax records or financial information of any Lender Party or the Administrative Agent and (ii) neither the Administrative Agent nor any Lender Party shall have any obligation to pursue (and no Loan Party shall have any right to assert) any refund of Taxes or Other Taxes that may be paid by the Borrower.  Without limitation of this Section 2.12, if a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to United States federal withholding tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting and document provision requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Internal Revenue Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by either, such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Internal Revenue Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower and/or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Borrower and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA, to determine that such Lender has or has not complied with such Lender obligations under FATCA and, as necessary, to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment.
 
 
55

 
 
SECTION 2.13.            Sharing of Payments, Etc.  If any Lender Party shall obtain at any time any payment (whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right of set-off, or otherwise, other than as a result of an assignment pursuant to Section 9.07) (a) on account of Obligations due and payable to such Lender Party hereunder and under the Notes at such time in excess of its Pro Rata Share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Obligations due and payable to such Lender Party at such time to (ii) the aggregate amount of the Obligations due and payable to all Lender Parties hereunder and under the Notes at such time) of payments on account of the Obligations due and payable to all Lender Parties hereunder and under the Notes at such time obtained by all the Lender Parties at such time, or (b) on account of Obligations owing (but not due and payable) to such Lender Party hereunder and under the Notes at such time in excess of its Pro Rata Share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Obligations owing to such Lender Party at such time to (ii) the aggregate amount of the Obligations owing (but not due and payable) to all Lender Parties hereunder and under the Notes at such time) of payments on account of the Obligations owing (but not due and payable) to all Lender Parties hereunder and under the Notes at such time obtained by all of the Lender Parties at such time, such Lender Party shall forthwith purchase from the other Lender Parties such interests or participating interests in the Obligations, as the case may be, due and payable or owing to them, as the case may be, as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender Party to share the excess payment ratably with each of them; provided, however, that if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from such purchasing Lender Party, such purchase from each other Lender Party shall be rescinded and such other Lender Party shall repay to the purchasing Lender Party the purchase price to the extent of such Lender Party’s ratable share (according to the proportion of (1) the purchase price paid to such Lender Party to (2) the aggregate purchase price paid to all Lender Parties) of such recovery together with an amount equal to such Lender Party’s ratable share (according to the proportion of (x) the amount of such other Lender Party’s required repayment to (y) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing Lender Party) of any interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Lender Party in respect of the total amount so recovered.  The Borrower agrees that any Lender Party so purchasing an interest or participating interest from another Lender Party pursuant to this Section 2.13 may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all its rights of payment (including the right of set-off) with respect to such interest or participating interest, as the case may be, as fully as if such Lender Party were the direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such interest or participating interest, as the case may be.
 
SECTION 2.14.            Use of Proceeds.  The proceeds of the Advances and issuances of Letters of Credit shall be available (and the Borrower agrees that it shall use such proceeds and Letters of Credit) solely for the acquisition and/or development of Student Housing Properties and/or Development Properties, to make capital expenditures, for working capital purposes and for other general corporate purposes of the Parent Guarantor and its Subsidiaries.
 
 
56

 
 
SECTION 2.15.            Evidence of Debt.  (a) Each Lender Party shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice an account or accounts evidencing the indebtedness of the Borrower to such Lender Party resulting from each Advance owing to such Lender Party from time to time, including the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid to such Lender Party from time to time hereunder.  The Borrower agrees that upon notice by any Lender Party to the Borrower (with a copy of such notice to the Administrative Agent) to the effect that a promissory note or other evidence of indebtedness is required or appropriate in order for such Lender Party to evidence (whether for purposes of pledge, enforcement or otherwise) the Advances owing to, or to be made by, such Lender Party, the Borrower shall promptly execute and deliver to such Lender Party, with a copy to the Administrative Agent, a Revolving Credit Note, in substantially the form of Exhibit A-1 hereto, payable to the order of such Lender Party in a principal amount equal to the Revolving Credit Commitment of such Lender Party a Term I Note in substantially the form of Exhibit A-2 hereto, payable to the order of such Lender Party in a principal amount equal to the Term I Commitment of such Lender Party, or a Term II Note in substantially the form of Exhibit A-3 hereto, payable to the order of such Lender Party in a principal amount equal to the Term II Commitment of such Lender Party, as applicable.  All references to Notes in the Loan Documents shall mean Notes, if any, to the extent issued hereunder.  By delivery of this Agreement and the Notes, there shall not be deemed to have occurred, and there has not otherwise occurred, any payment, satisfaction or novation of the Debt evidenced by the Existing Credit Agreement and the “Notes” described in the Existing Credit Agreement, which Debt (i) evidenced by the “Revolving Credit Notes” under the Existing Credit Agreement is instead evidenced by this Agreement and the Revolving Credit Notes and is allocated among the Lender Parties that are Revolving Credit Lenders as of the date hereof in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Credit Commitments, and the Lender Parties that are Revolving Credit Lenders shall as of the date hereof make such adjustments to the outstanding Revolving Credit Advances of such Lender Parties so that such outstanding Revolving Credit Advances are consistent with their respective Revolving Credit Commitments, and (ii) evidenced by the “Term Notes” under the Existing Credit Agreement instead evidenced by this Agreement and the Term I Notes and the Term II Notes and is first allocated among the Lender Parties that are Term I Lenders as of the date hereof in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Share of the Term I Commitments and the remainder is allocated to the Term II Lenders as of the date hereof in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Share of the Term II Commitments, and the Lender Parties that are Term Lenders shall as of the date hereof make such adjustments to the outstanding “Term Advances” under the Existing Credit Agreement of such Lender Parties so that such outstanding Term I Advances and Term II Advances are consistent with the foregoing and their respective Term I Commitments and Term II Commitments.
 
(b)           The Register maintained by the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 9.07(d) shall include a control account, and a subsidiary account for each Lender Party, in which accounts (taken together) shall be recorded (i) the date and amount of each Borrowing made hereunder, the Type of Advances comprising such Borrowing and, if appropriate, the Interest Period applicable thereto, (ii) the terms of each Assignment and Acceptance delivered to and accepted by it, (iii) the amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from the Borrower to each Lender Party hereunder, and (iv) the amount of any sum received by the Administrative Agent from the Borrower hereunder and each Lender Party’s share thereof.
 
 
57

 
 
(c)           Entries made in good faith by the Administrative Agent in the Register pursuant to subsection (b) above, and by each Lender Party in its account or accounts pursuant to subsection (a) above, shall be prima facie evidence of the amount of principal and interest due and payable or to become due and payable from the Borrower to, in the case of the Register, each Lender Party and, in the case of such account or accounts, such Lender Party, under this Agreement, absent manifest error; provided, however, that the failure of the Administrative Agent or such Lender Party to make an entry, or any finding that an entry is incorrect, in the Register or such account or accounts shall not limit or otherwise affect the obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement.
 
SECTION 2.16.           Increase in the Aggregate Revolving Credit Commitments, Term I Commitments and Term II Commitments.
 
(a)           The Borrower may, at any time, by written notice to the Administrative Agent, request an increase in the aggregate amount of the Revolving Credit Commitments, the Term I Commitments and/or the Term II Commitments by not less than $10,000,000 nor more than $500,000,000 in the aggregate (which, assuming no previous reduction in the Revolving Credit Commitments, Term I Commitments or Term II Commitments, would result in a maximum aggregate of Revolving Credit Commitments, Term I Commitments  and Term II Commitments of $1,600,000,000.00) (each such proposed  increase, a “Commitment Increase”) to be effective as of a date (the “Increase Date”) as specified in the related notice to the Administrative Agent, which Commitment Increase may be allocated (1) to the then existing Revolving Credit Commitments, (2) as a new revolving tranche having the same terms as the then existing Revolving Credit Commitments, or (3) to the then existing Term I Commitment or Term II Commitment having the same terms as the existing Term I Commitments or Term II Commitments, as applicable, (4) any combination thereof satisfactory to Administrative Agent and existing or additional Revolving Credit Lenders and Term Lenders, as applicable, providing such additional Revolving Credit Commitments, Term I Commitments or Term II Commitments; provided, however, that (i) in no event shall the aggregate amount of the Revolving Credit Commitments, Term I Commitments and Term II Commitments at any time exceed $1,600,000,000, and (ii) on the date of any request by the Borrower for a Commitment Increase and on the related Increase Date, the applicable conditions set forth in Article III shall be satisfied.
 
(b)           The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Revolving Credit Lenders and Term Lenders of each request by the Borrower for a Commitment Increase, which notice shall include (i) the proposed amount of such requested Commitment Increase, (ii) the proposed Increase Date and (iii) the date by which Revolving Credit Lenders, Term I Lenders or Term II Lenders, as applicable, wishing to participate in the Commitment Increase must commit to an increase in the amount of their respective Commitments (the “Commitment Date”).  Each Revolving Credit Lender, Term I Lender or Term II Lender, as applicable, that is willing to participate in such requested Commitment Increase (each an “Increasing Lender”) shall, in its sole discretion, give written notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the Commitment Date of the amount by which it is willing to increase its Revolving Credit Commitment, Term I Commitment or Term II Commitment, as applicable.  If the Revolving Credit Lenders, Term I Lenders or Term II Lenders notify the Administrative Agent that they are willing to increase the amount of their respective Revolving Credit Commitments, Term I Commitments or Term II Commitments, as applicable, by an aggregate amount that exceeds the amount of the requested Commitment Increase, the requested Commitment Increase shall be allocated among the Revolving Credit Lenders, Term I Lenders or Term II Lenders, as applicable, willing to participate therein in such amounts as are agreed between the Borrower and the Administrative Agent.
 
 
58

 
 
(c)           Promptly following each Commitment Date, the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrower as to the amount, if any, by which the Revolving Credit Lenders or the applicable Term Lenders, as applicable, are willing to participate in the requested Commitment Increase.  If the aggregate amount by which the Revolving Credit Lenders or the applicable Term Lenders, as applicable, are willing to participate in such requested Commitment Increase on such Commitment Date is less than the requested Commitment Increase, then the Borrower may extend offers to one or more Eligible Assignees to participate in any portion of the requested Commitment Increase that has not been committed to by the Revolving Credit Lenders or the applicable Term Lenders, as applicable, as of such Commitment Date; provided, however, that the Revolving Credit Commitment, Term I Commitment or Term II Commitment, as applicable, of each such Eligible Assignee shall be in an amount of $5,000,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof unless otherwise agreed by Borrower and Administrative Agent.
 
(d)           On each Increase Date, each Eligible Assignee that accepts an offer to participate in the requested Commitment Increase in accordance with Section 2.16(c) (an “Assuming Lender”) shall become a Revolving Credit Lender, Term I Lender or Term II Lender, as applicable, party to this Agreement as of such Increase Date and the Revolving Credit Commitment, Term I Commitment or Term II Commitment, as applicable, of each Increasing Lender for such requested Commitment Increase shall be so increased by such amount (or by the amount allocated to such Revolving Credit Lender, Term I Lender or Term II Lender pursuant to the last sentence of Section 2.16(b)) as of such Increase Date; provided, however that the Administrative Agent shall have received on or before such Increase Date the following, each dated such date:
 
(i)           an assumption agreement from each Assuming Lender, if any, in form and substance satisfactory to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (each an “Assumption Agreement”), duly executed by such Assuming Lender, the Administrative Agent and the Borrower; and
 
(ii)           confirmation from each Increasing Lender of the increase in the amount of its Revolving Credit Commitment, Term I Commitment or Term II Commitment, as applicable, in a writing satisfactory to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent.
 
On each Increase Date, upon fulfillment of the conditions set forth in the immediately preceding sentence of this Section 2.16(d), the Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders (including, without limitation, each Assuming Lender) and the Borrower, on or before 1:00 P.M. (New York City time), by telecopier or telex, of the occurrence of the Commitment Increase to be effected on such Increase Date and shall record in the Register the relevant information with respect to each Increasing Lender and each Assuming Lender on such date.
 
 
59

 
 
(e)           As a condition to the effectiveness of any increase in the aggregate Revolving Credit Commitments, Term I Commitments or Term II Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.16, the Borrower shall pay (i) to the Administrative Agent and Arrangers such fees as required by the Fee Letter, and (ii) to each Increasing Lender or Assuming Lender, as applicable, such fees as they may require in connection therewith, which fees shall, when paid, be fully earned and non-refundable under any circumstances.
 
(f)           As a condition to the effectiveness of any increase in the aggregate Revolving Credit Commitments, Term I Commitments or Term II Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.16, the Borrower and the Guarantors shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders such additional documents, instruments, certifications and opinions as the Agent may reasonably require in its sole and absolute discretion (including, without limitation, in the case of the Borrower, a certificate demonstrating compliance with all covenants, representations and warranties set forth in the Loan Documents after giving effect to the increase) and the Borrower shall pay the cost of any and all intangible taxes or other documentary or mortgage taxes, assessments or charges or any similar fees, taxes or expenses which are required to be paid in connection with such increase.
 
(g)           On any Increase Date (i) if such increase is to the Term I Commitment or Term II Commitment, the amount set forth in the Increase Notice shall become part of the Term I Commitment or Term II Commitment, as applicable, and shall be funded by the Term I Lenders, the Term II Lenders or the Lenders acquiring such Term I Commitment or Term II Commitment, as applicable, to the Administrative Agent for disbursement to the Borrower, and (ii) if such increase is to the Revolving Credit Commitment, the outstanding principal balance of the Revolving Credit Advances shall be reallocated among the Revolving Credit Lenders such that after the applicable Increase Date the outstanding principal amount of Revolving Credit Advances owed to each Revolving Credit Lender shall be equal to such Revolving Credit Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage (as in effect after the applicable Increase Date) of the outstanding principal amount of all Revolving Credit Advances.  The participation interests of the Revolving Credit Lenders in Swing Line Facility and Letter of Credit Facility shall be similarly adjusted.  On any Increase Date those Revolving Credit Lenders whose Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage is increasing shall advance the funds to the Administrative Agent and the funds so advanced shall be distributed among the Revolving Credit Lenders whose Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage is decreasing as necessary to accomplish the required reallocation of the outstanding Revolving Credit Advances.  The funds so advanced shall be Base Rate Advances or Eurodollar Rate Advances, as the case may be, among all Revolving Credit Lenders based on their Revolving Credit Commitment Percentages.

SECTION 2.20.            Delinquent Lenders.
 
(a)           Adjustments.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Delinquent Lender, then, until such time as that Lender is no longer a Delinquent Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable Law:
 
(i)           Waivers and Amendments.  That Delinquent Lender’s right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent with respect to this Agreement shall be restricted as set forth in this Agreement.
 
(ii)           Reallocation of Payments.  Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Administrative Agent for the account of that Delinquent Lender under this Agreement (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Article VI or otherwise, and including any amounts made available to the Administrative Agent by that Delinquent Lender pursuant to Section 9.05), shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Administrative Agent as follows:  first, to the payment of any amounts owing by that Delinquent Lender to the Administrative Agent hereunder; second, if so determined by the Administrative Agent, to be held as cash collateral for future funding obligations of that Delinquent Lender of any participation in any Letter of Credit or Swing Line Advance; third, as the Borrower may request (so long as no Default or Event of Default exists), to the funding of any Advance in respect of which that Delinquent Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Administrative Agent; fourth, if so determined by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to be held in a non-interest bearing deposit account and released in order to satisfy obligations of that Delinquent Lender to fund Advances or participations under this Agreement; fifth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender against that Delinquent Lender as a result of that Delinquent Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; sixth, so long as no Default or Event of Default exists, to the payment of any amounts owing to Borrower as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by Borrower against that Delinquent Lender as a result of that Delinquent Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and seventh, to that Delinquent Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that if (x) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Advance in respect of which that Delinquent Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share and (y) such Advances were made at a time when the conditions set forth in Sections 3.01 and 3.02, as applicable, were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the applicable Advances of all non-Delinquent Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Advances of that Delinquent Lender.  Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Delinquent Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Delinquent Lender or to post cash collateral pursuant to this Section 2.20 shall be deemed paid to and redirected by that Delinquent Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto.
 
 
63

 
 
(iii)           Certain Fees.  During any period that a Lender is a Delinquent Lender, such Delinquent Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment and outstanding Revolving Credit Advances shall be excluded for purposes of calculating any fee payable to the Revolving Credit Lenders under Section 2.08(a) and 2.08(b), and during such period the Borrower shall not be required to pay, and such Delinquent Lender shall not be entitled to receive, any such fees otherwise payable to such Delinquent Lender under such Sections; provided that fees payable with respect to any portion of such Delinquent Lender’s obligation to participate in Letters of Credit or Swing Line Advances that has been reallocated to another Revolving Credit Lender pursuant to Section 2.20(a)(iv) shall be payable to such Lender.
 
(iv)           Reallocation of Applicable Percentages to Reduce Fronting Exposure.  During any period in which there is a Delinquent Lender that is a Revolving Credit Lender, for purposes of computing the amount of the obligation of each non-Delinquent Lender to acquire, refinance or fund participations in Letters of Credit pursuant to Section 2.03 or in Swing Line Advances pursuant to Section 2.02(b), the “Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage” of each non-Delinquent Lender that is a Revolving Credit Lender shall be computed without giving effect to the Revolving Credit Commitment of that Delinquent Lender; provided, that, (i) each such reallocation shall be given effect only if, at the date the applicable Revolving Credit Lender becomes a Delinquent Lender, no Default or Event of Default exists; and (ii) the aggregate obligation of each non-Delinquent Lender that is a Revolving Credit Lender to acquire, refinance or fund participations in Letters of Credit and Swing Line Advances shall not exceed the positive difference, if any, of (1) the Revolving Credit Commitment of that non-Delinquent Lender minus (2) the aggregate outstanding amount of the Revolving Credit Advances and participations in Letter of Credit Advances and Swing Line Advances of that non-Delinquent Lender (it being acknowledged that no Revolving Credit Lender shall have any obligation to fund Revolving Credit Advances and participate in Letters of Credit and Swing Line Advances in excess of its Revolving Credit Commitment).
 
 
64

 
 
(b)           Delinquent Lender Cure.  If the Borrower and the Administrative Agent agree in writing in their sole discretion that a Delinquent Lender that is a Lender should no longer be deemed to be a Delinquent Lender, the Administrative Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein (which may include arrangements with respect to any cash collateral), that Lender will, to the extent applicable, purchase that portion of outstanding Advances of the other Lenders or take such other actions as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Advances and funded and unfunded participations in Letters of Credit and Swing Line Advances to be held on a pro rata basis by the Lenders in accordance with their applicable Revolving Credit Commitment Percentages (without giving effect to Section 2.20(a)(iv)), Term I Commitment Percentages and/or Term II Commitment Percentages, as applicable, whereupon that Lender will cease to be a Delinquent Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while that Lender was a Delinquent Lender; and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Delinquent Lender to Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender's having been a Delinquent Lender.
 
(c)           Purchase or Cancellation of Delinquent Lender's Commitment.  Any Lender who is not a Delinquent Lender may, but shall not be obligated, in its sole discretion, to acquire all or a portion of a Delinquent Lender’s Commitment.  Any Lender desiring to exercise such right shall give written notice thereof to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower no sooner than 2 Business Days and not later than 5 Business Days after such Delinquent Lender became a Delinquent Lender.  If more than one Lender exercises such right, each such Lender shall have the right to acquire an amount of such Delinquent Lender’s Commitment in proportion to the Commitments of the other Lenders exercising such right.  If after such 5th Business Day, the Lenders have not elected to purchase all of the Commitment of such Delinquent Lender, then the Borrower may, by giving written notice thereof to the Administrative Agent, such Delinquent Lender and the other Lenders, either (i) demand that such Delinquent Lender assign its Commitment to an Eligible Assignee subject to and in accordance with the provisions of Section 9.07 for the purchase price provided for below or (ii) terminate the Commitment of such Delinquent Lender, whereupon such Delinquent Lender shall no longer be a party hereto or have any rights or obligations hereunder or under any of the other Loan Documents.  No party hereto shall have any obligation whatsoever to initiate any such replacement or to assist in finding an Eligible Assignee.  Upon any such purchase or assignment, the Delinquent Lender’s interest in the Advances and its rights hereunder (but not its liability in respect thereof or under the Loan Documents or this Agreement to the extent the same relate to the period prior to the effective date of the purchase except to the extent assigned pursuant to such purchase) shall terminate on the date of purchase (other than any right of indemnification set forth in this Agreement which shall survive), and the Delinquent Lender shall promptly execute all documents reasonably requested to surrender and transfer such interest to the purchaser or assignee thereof, including an appropriate Assignment and Acceptance.  The purchase price for the Commitment of a Delinquent Lender shall be equal to the amount of the principal balance of the Advances outstanding and owed by the Borrower to the Delinquent Lender plus the amount of all outstanding and unpaid interest and other amounts owing to the Defaulting Lender.  Prior to payment of such purchase price to a Delinquent Lender, the Administrative Agent shall apply against such purchase price any amounts retained by the Administrative Agent pursuant to the last sentence of the immediately preceding subsection (a).  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Delinquent Lender shall be entitled to receive amounts owed to it by the Borrower under the Loan Documents which accrued prior to the date of the default by the Delinquent Lender, to the extent the same are received by the Administrative Agent from or on behalf of the Borrower.  There shall be no recourse against any Lender or the Administrative Agent for the payment of such sums except to the extent of the receipt of payments from any other party or in respect of the Advances.

SECTION 8.01.            Authorization and Action.  (a) Each Lender Party (in its capacities as a Lender, the Swing Line Bank (if applicable) and as an Issuing Bank (if applicable)) hereby appoints and authorizes the Administrative Agent to take such action as agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers and discretion under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as are delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms hereof and thereof, together with such powers and discretion as are reasonably incidental thereto.  As to any matters not expressly provided for by the Loan Documents (including, without limitation, enforcement or collection of the Notes), the Administrative Agent shall not be required to exercise any discretion or take any action, but shall be required to act or to refrain from acting (and shall be fully protected in so acting or refraining from acting) upon the instructions of the Required Lenders, and such instructions shall be binding upon all Lender Parties and all holders of Notes; provided, however that the Administrative Agent shall not be required to take any action that exposes the Administrative Agent to personal liability or that is contrary to this Agreement or applicable law.  The Administrative Agent agrees (i) to give to each Lender Party prompt notice of each notice given to it by the Borrower pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, and (ii) to provide to each Lender Party promptly upon the Administrative Agent’s receipt copies of the notices, financial information, documentation and other written materials provided to it pursuant to the terms of Section 5.03 of this Agreement.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any Loan Document, no Person identified as a syndication agent, documentation agent, senior manager, lead arranger or book running manager, in such Person’s capacity as such, shall have any obligations or duties to any Loan Party, the Administrative Agent or any other Lender Party under any of such Loan Documents.
 
The obligations of Administrative Agent hereunder are primarily administrative in nature, and nothing contained in this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents shall be construed to constitute the Administrative Agent as a trustee for any Lender Party or to create an agency or fiduciary relationship.  Administrative Agent shall act as the contractual representative of the Lender Parties hereunder and notwithstanding the use of the term ‘Administrative Agent’, it is understood and agreed that the Administrative Agent shall not have any fiduciary duties or responsibilities to any Lender Party by reason of this Agreement or any other Loan Document and is acting as an independent contractor, the rights and duties of which are limited to those expressly set forth in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

SECTION 8.03.            Administrative Agent and Affiliates.  With respect to its Commitments, the Advances made by it and the Notes issued to it, the Lender acting as the Administrative Agent shall have the same rights and powers under the Loan Documents as any other Lender Party and may exercise the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent; and the term “Lender Party” or “Lender Parties” shall, unless otherwise expressly indicated, include such Lender acting as Administrative Agent in its individual capacity.  The Lender acting as the Administrative Agent and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, act as trustee under indentures of, accept investment banking engagements from and generally engage in any kind of business with, any Loan Party, any Subsidiary of any Loan Party and any Person that may do business with or own securities of any Loan Party or any such Subsidiary, all as if such Lender acting as Administrative Agent were not the Administrative Agent and without any duty to account therefor to the Lender Parties.

(b)           If in the opinion of the Administrative Agent the distribution of any amount received by it in such capacity hereunder, under the Notes or under any of the other Loan Documents might involve it in liability, it may refrain from making such distribution until its right to make such distribution shall have been adjudicated by a court of competent jurisdiction.  If a court of competent jurisdiction shall adjudge that any amount received and distributed by the Administrative Agent is to be repaid, each Person to whom any such distribution shall have been made shall either repay to the Administrative Agent its proportionate share of the amount so adjudged to be repaid or shall pay over the same in such manner and to such Persons as shall be determined by such court.
 
(c)           In addition to the rights and remedies that may be available to the Administrative Agent at law and in equity, a Delinquent Lender’s right to participate in the administration of the Loan Documents, including, without limitation, any rights to consent to or direct any action or inaction of the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise, or to be taken into account in the calculation of Required Lenders, the Required Revolving Credit Lenders or any matter requiring approval of all of the Lenders or all affected Lenders, shall be suspended while such Lender is a Delinquent Lender; provided, however, that (x) the Commitment of any Delinquent Lender may not be increased without the consent of such Lender and (y) any waiver, amendment or modification requiring the consent of all Lenders that by its terms affects any Delinquent Lender more adversely than other affected Lenders shall require the consent of such Delinquent Lender. .  Without limiting the terms of Section 2.20, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to (i) withhold or set off, and to apply to the payment of the obligations of any Delinquent Lender any amounts to be paid to such Delinquent Lender under this Agreement, (ii) to collect interest from such Lender for the period from the date on which the payment was due at the rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Rate plus one percent (1%), for each day during such period, and (iii) bring an action or suit against such Delinquent Lender in a court of competent jurisdiction to recover the defaulted obligations of such Delinquent Lender.

(f)           Each Issuing Bank may assign to one or more Eligible Assignees all or a portion of its rights and obligations under the undrawn portion of its Letter of Credit Commitment at any time; provided, however that (i) except in the case of an assignment to a Person that immediately prior to such assignment was an Issuing Bank or an assignment of all of an Issuing Bank’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, the amount of the Letter of Credit Commitment of the assigning Issuing Bank being assigned pursuant to each such assignment (determined as of the date of the Assignment and Acceptance with respect to such assignment) shall in no event be less than $5,000,000 and shall be in an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof, (ii) each such assignment shall be to an Eligible Assignee and (iii) the parties to each such assignment shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent, for its acceptance and recording in the Register, an Assignment and Acceptance, together with a processing and recordation fee of $3,500, provided that such fee shall not be payable if the assigning Issuing Bank is making such assignment simultaneously with the assignment in its capacity as a Lender of all or a portion of its Revolving Credit Commitment to the same Eligible Assignee.

115

 
 
(j)           In connection with any assignment of rights and obligations of any Delinquent Lender, no such assignment shall be effective unless and until, in addition to the other conditions thereto set forth herein, the parties to the assignment shall make such additional payments to the Administrative Agent in an aggregate amount sufficient, upon distribution thereof as appropriate (which may be outright payment, purchases by the assignee of participations or actions, including funding, with the consent of the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, the applicable pro rata share of Loans previously requested but not funded by the Delinquent Lender to each of which the applicable assignee and assignor hereby irrevocably consent), to (i) pay and satisfy in full all payment liabilities then owed by such Delinquent Lender to the Administrative Agent or any Lender hereunder (and interest accrued thereon) and (y) acquire (and fund as appropriate) its full pro rata share of all Loans and participations in Letters of Credit and in Swing Line Advances in accordance with its Commitment Percentage.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that any assignment of rights and obligations of any Delinquent Lender hereunder shall become effective under applicable Law without compliance with the provisions of this paragraph, then the assignee of such interest shall be deemed to be a Delinquent Lender for all purposes of this Agreement until such compliance occurs.
 
SECTION 9.08.            Execution in Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement.  Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page to this Agreement by telecopier shall be effective as delivery of an original executed counterpart of this Agreement.

SECTION 9.11.            [Intentionally Omitted.]
 
SECTION 9.12.            Patriot Act Notification.  Each Lender and the Administrative Agent (for itself and not on behalf of any Lender) hereby notifies the Loan Parties that pursuant to the requirements of the USA Patriot Act (Title III of Pub.L. 107 56 (signed into law October 26, 2001)) (the “Patriot Act”), it is required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each Loan Party, which information includes the name and address of such Loan Party and other information that will allow such Lender or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, to identify such Loan Party in accordance with the Patriot Act.  The Parent Guarantor and the Borrower shall, and shall cause each of their Subsidiaries to, provide, to the extent commercially reasonable, such information and take such actions as are reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent or any Lenders in order to assist the Administrative Agent and the Lenders in maintaining compliance with the Patriot Act.
 
SECTION 9.13.            Jurisdiction, Etc.  (a) Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of any New York State court or Federal court of the United States of America sitting in New York City, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents to which it is a party, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in any such New York State court or, to the extent permitted by law, in such Federal court.  Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law.  Nothing in this Agreement shall affect any right that any party may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents in the courts of any jurisdiction.
 
(b)           Each of the parties hereto irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent it may legally and effectively do so, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents to which it is a party in any New York State or Federal court.  Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court.
 
 
117

 
 
SECTION 9.14.           Governing Law.  This Agreement and the Notes shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York.
 
SECTION 9.15.            WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL.  EACH OF THE BORROWER, EACH OTHER LOAN PARTY, THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT AND THE LENDER PARTIES IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO ANY OF THE LOAN DOCUMENTS, THE ADVANCES OR THE ACTIONS OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT OR ANY LENDER PARTY IN THE NEGOTIATION, ADMINISTRATION, PERFORMANCE OR ENFORCEMENT THEREOF.

FOR VALUE RECEIVED, the undersigned, AMERICAN CAMPUS COMMUNITIES OPERATING PARTNERSHIP LP, a Maryland limited partnership (the “Borrower”), HEREBY PROMISES TO PAY TO __________________________ (the “Lender”), for the account of its Applicable Lending Office (as defined in the Credit Agreement referred to below), the aggregate principal amount of the Revolving Credit Advances, the Letter of Credit Advances and the Swing Line Advances (each as defined below) owing to the Lender by the Borrower pursuant to the Fourth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated as of December 18, 2013 (as amended, amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”; terms defined therein, unless otherwise defined herein, being used herein as therein defined) among the Borrower, the Guarantors party thereto, the Lender and certain other lender parties party thereto, KeyBank National Association, a national banking association (“KeyBank”), as Initial Issuing Bank, the Swing Line Bank, and KeyBank, as Administrative Agent for the Lender Parties, on the Revolving Credit Termination Date.
 
The Borrower promises to pay to the Lender interest on the unpaid principal amount of each Revolving Credit Advance, Letter of Credit Advance and Swing Line Advance from the date of such Revolving Credit Advance, Letter of Credit Advance or Swing Line Advance, as the case may be, until such principal amount is paid in full, at such interest rates, and payable at such times, as are specified in the Credit Agreement.
