WHEREAS, the Company is offering to exchange up to $35,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 9.5% Senior Secured Notes due 2017 (the “Notes”) for its 9.5% Senior
Secured Notes due 2017 (the “Exchange Notes”) upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Prospectus dated _________ __, 2012 (the “Prospectus”), and the related Letter of Transmittal, which
together, as they may be supplemented or amended from time to time, constitute the “Offer.” All capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to such term in the Offer.
WHEREAS, the Company hereby appoints Wilmington Trust to act as the exchange agent and depositary (together, the “Exchange
Agent”) in connection with the Offer. References hereinafter to “you” shall refer to Wilmington Trust.
Offer is expected to be commenced by the Company on or about _________ __, 2012. The Letter of Transmittal that accompanies the Offer (or in the case of book-entry securities, the Automated Tender Offer Program (“ATOP”) of DTC
(as defined below)) is to be used by the holders of the Notes to accept the Offer. The Letter of Transmittal contains instructions with respect to the delivery of certificates for Notes tendered in connection therewith.
The Offer shall expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on _________ __, 2012, or on such subsequent date or time to which the
Company may extend the Offer (the “Expiration Date”). Subject to the terms and conditions of the Offer, the Company expressly reserves the right to extend the Offer from time to time and may extend the Offer by giving oral (promptly
confirmed in writing) or written notice to you before 9:00 a.m., New York City time, on the business day following the scheduled Expiration Date.
The Company expressly reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to (1) delay accepting any validly tendered Notes or (2) terminate or amend the Offer, in each case, by giving oral or written
notice (any such oral notice to be promptly confirmed in writing) of such delay, termination or amendment to the Exchange Agent. Any such delay in acceptance, termination or amendment will be followed as promptly as practicable by a public
announcement thereof by the Company.
In carrying out your duties as Exchange Agent, you are to act in accordance with the
1. You will perform such duties and only such duties as are specifically set forth in the section of

2. You will establish a book entry account in respect of the Notes at The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”), in
connection with the Offer. Any financial institution that is a participant in the DTC system may make book entry delivery of the Notes by causing DTC to transfer such Notes into the account maintained by you, pursuant to this section, in accordance
with DTC’s procedures for such transfer, and you may affect a withdrawal of Notes through such account by book entry movement as requested by the participant. The account shall be maintained until all Notes tendered pursuant to the Offer shall
have been either accepted or returned.
3. You are to examine each of the Letters of Transmittal and certificates for Notes
(or confirmation of book-entry transfer into your account at DTC) and any other documents delivered or mailed to you by or for holders of the Notes to ascertain whether: (a) the Letters of Transmittal and any such other documents are duly
executed and properly completed in accordance with instructions set forth therein; and (b) the Notes have otherwise been properly tendered. In each case where the Letter of Transmittal or any other document has been improperly completed or
executed or any of the certificates for Notes are not in proper form for transfer or some other irregularity in connection with the acceptance of the Offer exists, you will endeavor to inform the presenters of the need for fulfillment of all
requirements and to take any other action as may be necessary or advisable to cause such irregularity to be corrected.
4. With the approval of the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Financial Officer, the
General Counsel, the President, any Vice President, the Secretary, any Assistant Secretary, the Treasurer or any Assistant Treasurer of the Company (such approval, if given orally, to be promptly confirmed in writing), or any other party designated
in writing by such officer of the Company, you are authorized to waive any irregularities in connection with any tender pursuant to the Offer.
Tenders of Notes may be made only as set forth in the section of the Prospectus captioned “The Exchange Offer — Procedures for Tendering” and Notes shall be considered properly
tendered or delivered to you only when tendered in accordance with the procedures set forth therein.
5. Notwithstanding the
provisions of Section 4 of this Agreement, Notes that the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Financial Officer, the General Counsel, the President, any Vice President, the Treasurer, any Assistant Treasurer, the Secretary or any
Assistant Secretary of the Company shall approve as having been properly tendered shall be considered to be properly tendered (such approval, if given orally, shall be promptly confirmed in writing).

respect to disposition of such Notes.
7. You shall accept tenders:

(b) in cases where the signing person (as indicated on the Letter of Transmittal) is acting in a fiduciary or a
representative capacity only when proper evidence of his or her authority so to act is submitted; and
from persons other than the registered holder of Notes, provided that customary transfer requirements, including payment of any applicable transfer taxes, if any, are fulfilled.
You shall accept partial tenders of Notes (only to the extent that the partial tender is equal to a minimum of $2,000 and increments of
$1,000 thereafter) and deliver certificates for Notes to the registrar for split up and return any untendered Notes to the holder (or such other person as may be designated in the Letter of Transmittal) as promptly as practicable after expiration or
termination of the Offer.
8. Upon satisfaction or waiver of all of the conditions to the Offer, the Company will notify you
(such notice, if given orally, to be promptly confirmed in writing) of its acceptance, promptly after the Expiration Date, of all Notes properly tendered indicating the aggregate principal amount of Notes accepted. You, on behalf of the Company,
will exchange, in accordance with the terms hereof, accepted Notes for Exchange Notes and cause such Notes to be cancelled. Delivery of the Exchange Notes will be made on behalf of the Company by you at the rate of $1,000 principal amount of
Exchange Notes for each $1,000 principal amount of the corresponding series of Notes tendered promptly after notice (such notice if given orally, to be promptly confirmed in writing) of acceptance of such Notes by the Company; provided, however,
that in all cases, Notes tendered pursuant to the Offer will be exchanged only after timely receipt by you of certificates for such Notes (or confirmation of book-entry transfer into your account at DTC), a properly completed and duly executed
Letter of Transmittal (or manually signed facsimile thereof) with any required signature guarantees and any other required documents, or an agent’s message in lieu thereof. You shall issue Exchange Notes only in minimum of $2,000 and increments
of $1,000 thereafter.

conditions set forth in the Prospectus and the Letter of Transmittal, Notes tendered pursuant to the Offer may be withdrawn at anytime prior to the Expiration Date.

Notes tendered, you shall as soon as practicable after the expiration or termination of the Offer return those certificates for unaccepted Notes (or effect appropriate book entry transfer), together with any related required documents and the
Letters of Transmittal relating thereto that are in your possession, to the persons who deposited them.
12. All certificates
for reissued Notes, unaccepted Notes or Exchange Notes, as the case may be (other than those effected by book-entry transfer) shall be shipped by an approved overnight air courier under a Mail & Transit insurance policy protecting you and

proper person or persons;

from any authorized officer of the Company; and

Notice of Guaranteed Delivery (as described in the Prospectus), or such other forms as may be approved from time to time by the Company, to all persons requesting such documents and to accept and comply with telephone requests for information

email@example.com), and such other person or persons as Company may request, weekly (and more frequently during the week immediately preceding the Expiration Date, if requested) up to and including the Expiration Date, as to the
aggregate principal amount of Notes which have been tendered pursuant to the Offer and the items received by you pursuant to this Agreement, separately
reporting and giving cumulative totals as items properly received and items improperly received. In addition, you also will inform, and cooperate in making available to, the Company or any such

person as the Company may request of access to those persons on your staff who are responsible for receiving tenders, in order to ensure that immediately prior to the Expiration Date and each other Expiration Date, if any, the Company shall have
received information in sufficient detail to enable it to decide whether to extend the Offer. You shall then prepare a final list of all persons whose tenders were accepted, the aggregate principal amount of Notes tendered and the amount accepted
and deliver such list to the Company.
18. Letters of Transmittal and Notices of Guaranteed Delivery shall be stamped by you
as to the date, and, after the expiration of the Offer, the time, of receipt thereof and shall be preserved by you for a period of time at least equal to the period of time you preserve other records pertaining to the transfer of securities. You
shall dispose of unused Letters of Transmittal and other surplus materials.
19. For services rendered as Exchange Agent
hereunder, you shall be entitled to such compensation as set forth on Schedule I attached hereto. The provisions of this section shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

indemnification as Exchange Agent.
21. The Company covenants and agrees to fully indemnify and hold you harmless against any
and all loss, liability, cost or expense, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable expenses, incurred without bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct on your part, arising out of or in connection with any act, omission,
delay or refusal made by you in reliance upon any signature, endorsement, assignment, certificate, order, request, notice, instruction or other instrument or document believed by you to be valid, genuine and sufficient and in accepting any tender or
effecting any transfer of Notes believed by you in good faith to be authorized, and in delaying or refusing in good faith to accept any tenders or effect any transfer of Notes. In each case, the Company shall be notified by you, by letter or
facsimile transmission, of the written assertion of a claim against you or of any other action commenced against you, promptly after you shall have received any such written assertion or shall have been served with a summons in connection therewith.
The Company shall be entitled to participate at its own expense in the defense of any such claim or other action and, if the Company so elects, the Company shall assume the defense of any suit brought to enforce any such claim. In the event that the
Company shall assume the defense of any such suit, the Company shall not be liable for the fees and expenses of any additional counsel thereafter retained by you, so long as the Company shall retain counsel satisfactory to you to defend such suit;
provided, that the Company shall not be entitled to assume the defense of any such action if the named parties to such action include both you and the Company and representation of both parties by the same legal counsel would, in the written opinion
of your counsel, be inappropriate due to actual or potential conflicting interests between you and the Company. The provisions of this section shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

including those relating to missing Tax Identification Numbers, and shall file any appropriate reports with the Internal Revenue Service (e.g., 1099, 1099B, etc.) as directed in writing by the Company.

transfer taxes, at such time as such refund is received by you.

hereunder shall be construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware applicable to agreements made and to be performed entirely within such state, and without regard to conflicts of laws principles, and shall inure to the
benefit of, and the obligations created hereby shall be binding upon, the successors and assigns of each of the parties hereto.

deemed to be an original and all of which together shall constitute one and the same agreement.
