ARTICLE 2  — COMMITMENT

 

2.1                               Commitment and Use. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, during the term of this Agreement, HL UK may advance funds to OGC (each an “Advance”, and collectively, the “Advances”), and OGC may accept such Advances in an aggregate amount not to exceed USD $150 million at any time outstanding (“Commitment”).

(b)                                 the intended Advance shall be made by HL UK only if OGC agrees to accept such Advance;

 

1



 

(c)                                  no Advance shall be made to the extent that an Event of Default shall exist and be continuing (which, to the extent it may be remedied, has not been remedied to the satisfaction of the parties hereto) on the date of the intended Advance;

 

(d)                                 such Advance shall only be in a multiple of USD $100,000;

 

(e)                                  no Advance, when aggregated with all previous Advances still outstanding, shall cause the total outstanding aggregate amount of all Advances to exceed the Commitment.

 

2.3                               Term of this Agreement. The term of this Agreement shall run from the date hereof until the earliest of (i) the Maturity Date, and (ii) the date on which obligations under this Agreement become due and payable pursuant to Section 5.6(a) or otherwise.

 

ARTICLE 3  — THE ADVANCES

 

3.1                               The Advances. Subject to the provisions of Section 2.2, HL UK shall make Advances under the Note. OGC’s obligations with respect to the Advances will be evidenced and established by this Agreement and the Note; however, in the event of any conflict or inconsistency between the terms of this Agreement and the Note, the terms of the Note shall prevail. Monies representing Advances made under this Agreement may be advanced, withdrawn and re-advanced (where offered by HL UK), provided that the aggregate outstanding amount of the Advances shall be paid in full on or before the Termination Date.

 

3.2                               Note. The obligation of OGC to repay the Advances shall be evidenced by the Note, which Note shall: (a) be dated as of even date herewith; (b) be in the original aggregate amount not to exceed the Commitment; (c) bear interest in respect of amounts outstanding under any Advance for the period from the date of the making of the relevant Advance until the Advance is repaid in full at the rate(s) set forth in Section 3.3; (d) be payable as to interest on each Payment Date; (e) be payable as to the Advance balances as set forth in Section 3.5; (f) be entitled to the benefits of this Agreement; and (g) be substantially in the form of Exhibit B attached hereto, with blanks appropriately completed in conformity herewith.

 

3.3                               Interest. Subject to Section 3.4 below, with respect to each Advance, the Advances shall bear interest on the outstanding balance at a per annum rate equal to the monthly London Interbank Offer Rate as published in the Wall Street Journal two (2) Business Days prior to the commencement of the applicable Interest Period (“LIBOR Rate”) plus 165 basis points (any such rate, subject to the terms hereof, the “Interest Rate”). The Interest Rate shall be reset on the first Business Day of each calendar month. OGC will make interest payments on the outstanding aggregate amount of the Advances either (a) one month in arrears on each Payment Date and upon payment in full of the outstanding aggregate amount (whether by acceleration, stated maturity or otherwise), or (b) if the total aggregate amount of all Advances (plus interest accrued and added to the aggregate amount outstanding in accordance with this Section 3.3(b)) outstanding would not exceed the Commitment, OGC may elect to add interest accruing on the Advances on any given

 

2



 

Payment Date to the aggregate amount outstanding thereunder. Interest will be calculated daily on the basis of a 360 day year on aggregate amounts outstanding under the Advances for the actual number of days elapsed.

 

3.4                               Default Interest Rate. If any payment of any amount payable hereunder or under any other Cash Management Document is not paid when due, whether on the scheduled Payment Date, the Termination Date, or any other date including as a result of acceleration of the Advances upon an Event of Default, then the amount then due and unpaid shall thereafter bear interest until paid at a rate (“Default Interest Rate”) per annum (based on a 360 day year, actual days elapsed) equal to the applicable Interest Rate plus two percent (2%) per annum, and such accrued interest at the Default Interest Rate shall be due and payable by OGC on demand by HL UK.

 

3.5                               Repayment.

 

(a)                                 All outstanding Advances shall be repaid in full on the Termination Date.

 

(b)                                 Notwithstanding the provisions of sub-clause (a) above, HL UK may require prepayment of all or any portion of the outstanding Advances (and for partial prepayment, in integral multiples of USD $100,000) at any time and from time to time by sending to OGC notice of prepayment at least five (5) Business Days prior to the date of prepayment. Any amounts prepaid may be re-advanced (where monies representing prepaid Advances are so offered by HL UK) during the term of this Agreement.

 

(c)                                  OGC may optionally prepay any outstanding Advances in whole or in part (in integral multiples of USD $100,000 each in part) at any time and from time to time by sending to HL UK notice of optional prepayment. Any notice of optional prepayment shall (i) specify the proposed prepayment amount, (ii) specify the proposed prepayment date, which shall be a Business Day, and (iii) be delivered to HL UK at least five (5) Business Days prior to the proposed prepayment date. Any amounts prepaid may be re-advanced (where monies representing prepaid Advances are so offered by HL UK) during the term of this Agreement.

 

(d)                                 If at any time the balance of Advances outstanding hereunder exceeds the Commitment, OGC shall immediately repay the amount of such excess as a prepayment of the Advances after providing notice to HL UK.

 

3.6                               Payment Procedure. Except as specifically set forth in this Agreement, all payments made by OGC under the Note or this Agreement relative to the Advances shall be made by wire transfer to a bank account specified by HL UK. Provided that no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the amount of all such payments received by HL UK from OGC shall be applied by HL UK, first, against all costs and expenses incurred by HL UK under this Agreement; second, against accrued but unpaid interest on the outstanding Advances; and third, against the unpaid balance of the outstanding Advances. If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, payments received by HL UK shall be applied in HL UK’s sole discretion.
