LIBOR definition

LIBOR means, with respect to any Interest Period, the London interbank offered rate for deposits in U.S. Dollars having a maturity of one month commencing on the related LIBOR Determination Date which appears on Bloomberg Screen BTMM Page (or any successor page) as of 11:00 a.m., London time, on such LIBOR Determination Date; provided, however, that for the first Interest Period, LIBOR shall mean an interpolated rate for deposits based on London interbank offered rates for deposits in U.S. Dollars for a period that corresponds to the actual number of days in the first Interest Period. If the rates used to determine LIBOR do not appear on the Bloomberg Screen BTMM Page (or any successor page), the rates for that day will be determined on the basis of the rates at which deposits in U.S. Dollars, having a maturity of one month and in a principal amount of not less than U.S. $1,000,000 are offered at approximately 11:00 a.m. London time, on such LIBOR Determination Date to prime banks in the London interbank market by the reference banks. The Indenture Trustee will request the principal London office of each of such reference banks to provide a quotation of its rate. If at least two such quotations are provided, the rate for that day will be the arithmetic mean to the nearest 1/100,000 of 1.00% (0.0000001), with five one-millionths of a percentage point rounded upward, of all such quotations. If fewer than two such quotations are provided, the rate for that day will be the arithmetic mean to the nearest 1/100,000 of 1.00% (0.0000001), with five one-millionths of a percentage point rounded upward, of the offered per annum rates that one or more leading banks in New York City, selected by the Indenture Trustee (after consulting with the Seller), are quoting as of approximately 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on such LIBOR Determination Date to leading European banks for United States dollar deposits for that maturity; provided, that if the banks selected as aforesaid are not quoting as mentioned in this sentence, LIBOR in effect for the applicable Interest Period will be LIBOR in effect for the previous Interest Period. The reference banks are the four major banks in the London interbank market selected by the Indenture Trustee (after consultation with the Seller).
LIBOR means, in relation to any Loan:
LIBOR means, with respect to any LIBOR Determination Date, the rate for deposits in United States dollars with a duration comparable to the relevant Interest Accrual Period which appears on Reuters Screen LIBOR01 as of 11:00 a.m., London time, on such day. If such rate does not appear on Reuters Screen LIBOR01, the rate will be determined by the Indenture Trustee on the basis of the rates at which deposits in United States dollars are offered by major banks in the London interbank market, selected by the Indenture Trustee, at approximately 11:00 a.m., London time, on such day to prime banks in the London interbank market with a duration comparable to the relevant Interest Accrual Period commencing on that day. The Indenture Trustee will request the principal London office of at least four banks to provide a quotation of its rate. If at least two such quotations are provided, the rate will be the arithmetic mean of the quotations. If fewer than two quotations are provided as requested, the rate for that day will be the arithmetic mean of the rates quoted by four major banks in New York City, selected by the Trustee, at approximately 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on that day for loans in United States dollars to leading European banks with a duration comparable to the relevant Interest Accrual Period commencing on that day. If LIBOR with respect to a LIBOR Determination Date is not determined pursuant to the foregoing, LIBOR with respect to such LIBOR Determination Date will be LIBOR with respect to the immediately prior LIBOR Determination Date.
