Definition of Contingent Obligations


Contingent Obligations means, with respect to any Person, any obligation of such Person guaranteeing any leases, dividends or other obligations that do not constitute Indebtedness ("primary obligations") of any other Person (the "primary obligor") in any manner, whether directly or indirectly, including, without limitation, any obligation of such Person, whether or not contingent:


Contingent Obligations means, with respect to any Person, without duplication, any obligations (other than endorsements in the ordinary course of business of negotiable instruments for deposit or collection) guaranteeing any Debt of any other Person in any manner, whether direct or indirect, and including without limitation any obligation, whether or not contingent, (a) to purchase any such Debt or other obligation or any property constituting security therefor, (b) to advance or provide funds or other support for the payment or purchase of such Debt or obligation or to maintain working capital, solvency or other balance sheet condition of such other Person (including, without limitation, maintenance agreements, comfort letters, take or pay arrangements, put agreements or similar agreements or arrangements) for the benefit of the holder of Debt of such other Person, (c) to lease or purchase property, securities or services primarily for the purpose of assuring the owner of such Debt or (d) to otherwise assure or hold harmless the owner of such Debt or obligation against loss in respect thereof. The amount of any Contingent Obligation hereunder shall (subject to any limitations set forth therein) be deemed to be an amount equal to the outstanding principal amount (or maximum principal amount, if larger) of the Debt in respect of which such Contingent Obligation is made.

Contingent Obligations means, with respect to any Person, all of such Person's liabilities and obligations which are contingent upon and will not mature unless and until the occurrence of some event or circumstance and which are not included within the definition of Liabilities of such Person.
