WHEREAS, the Company, the Designated Borrowers identified therein, the Lenders identified therein and the Administrative Agent are parties to the Credit Agreement dated as of September 1, 2017 (as amended, modified, supplemented, increased and extended from time to time, the 'Credit Agreement'); and
WHEREAS, the Loan Parties have requested that the Lenders amend certain provisions of the Credit Agreement and the Lenders have agreed to such amendments on the terms and conditions set forth herein.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the agreements hereinafter set forth, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and adequacy of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:
1.Defined Terms. Capitalized terms used herein but not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings provided to such terms in the Amended Credit Agreement (defined below).
2.Increase and Reallocation of Revolving Commitments and Initial Term Loan.
(a)Schedule 1.01(a) to the Credit Agreement is hereby amended in its entirety to read in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A ('Amended Schedule 1.01(a)').
(b)The amount of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitment of each Revolving Lender and the Dollar Tranche Applicable Percentage of each Revolving Lender are amended to read as set forth on Amended Schedule 1.01(a). The increase in the Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments pursuant to this Amendment does not constitute Incremental Revolving Commitments pursuant to Section 2.22 of the Amended Credit Agreement. Each Revolving Lender that is increasing its Dollar Tranche Applicable Percentage pursuant to this Amendment shall make Dollar Tranche Revolving Loans in Dollars on the date hereof to the Administrative Agent, the proceeds of which will be applied by the Administrative Agent on the date hereof to prepay Dollar Tranche Revolving Loans of the Revolving Lenders that are not increasing their Dollar Tranche Applicable Percentages pursuant to this Amendment in the amount notified by the Administrative Agent as shall be necessary in order that, after giving effect to all such advances and repayments, the outstanding principal amount of all Dollar Tranche Revolving Loans will be held by the Revolving Lenders ratably in accordance with their respective Dollar Tranche Applicable Percentages after giving effect to this Amendment. The risk participations of each Revolving Lender in any outstanding Swingline Loans and Letters of Credit shall be reallocated on the date hereof among the Revolving Lenders in accordance with their respective Dollar Tranche Applicable Percentages after giving effect to this Amendment.


(c)The amount of the Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Commitment of each Revolving Lender and the Multicurrency Tranche Applicable Percentage of each Revolving Lender are amended to read as set forth on Amended Schedule 1.01(a). The increase in Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Commitments pursuant to this Amendment does not constitute Incremental Revolving Commitments pursuant to Section 2.22 of the Amended Credit Agreement. Each Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Lender that is increasing its Multicurrency Tranche Applicable Percentage pursuant to this Amendment shall make Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Loans in Dollars or in one or more Alternative Currencies on the date hereof to the Administrative Agent, the proceeds of which will be applied by the Administrative Agent on the date hereof to prepay Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Loans of the Revolving Lenders that are not increasing their Multicurrency Tranche Applicable Percentages pursuant to this Amendment in the amount and currency notified by the Administrative Agent as shall be necessary in order that, after giving effect to all such advances and repayments, the outstanding principal amount of all Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Loans will be held by the Revolving Lenders ratably in accordance with their respective Multicurrency Tranche Applicable Percentages after giving effect to this Amendment.
(d)Each Term Lender with an Initial Term Loan Commitment on Amended Schedule 1.01(a) that exceeds the outstanding amount of the Initial Term Loan held by such Term Lender immediately prior to giving effect to this Amendment (each, an 'Increasing Term Lender') shall make an additional advance of the Initial Term Loan in the amount of such excess on the date hereof to the Administrative Agent, the proceeds of which will be applied by the Administrative Agent first, to pay each Term Lender with an Initial Term Loan Commitment on Amended Schedule 1.01(a) that is less than the outstanding amount of the Initial Term Loan held by such Term Lender immediately prior to giving effect to this Amendment the amount of such difference and second, as directed by the Borrower (whether to the prepayment of Revolving Loans or to an account designated by the Borrower). The additional advances of the Initial Term Loan on the date hereof and the Initial Term Loan outstanding immediately prior to the date hereof shall be deemed one term loan constituting the Initial Term Loan and shall be subject to all of the terms and conditions applicable to the Initial Term Loan set forth in the Amended Credit Agreement. The additional advances of the Initial Term Loan pursuant to this Amendment do not constitute Incremental Term Commitments pursuant to Section 2.22 of the Amended Credit Agreement.
(e)Each Lender waives the application of Section 2.17 of the Amended Credit Agreement to any prepayment (or deemed prepayment) that occurs in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby to occur on the date hereof. This waiver is a one-time waiver and shall not be construed to be a waiver of, or in any way obligate any Lender to waive, compensation otherwise payable to such Lender under Section 2.17 of the Amended Credit Agreement in any other circumstance.
(f)Each of the Administrative Agent, the Swingline Lender and each Issuing Lender consents to the reallocation of Revolving Commitments and risk participations in Swingline Loans and Letters of Credit set forth herein.


3.Amendments. The Credit Agreement (other than, except as set forth in Section 2 of this Amendment, the schedules and exhibits thereto) is hereby amended in its entirety to read in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B (the 'Amended Credit Agreement').

In the event that any payment is made by, or any collection is realized from, any Loan Party as to which any Obligations are Excluded Swap Obligations, or from any Collateral provided by such Loan Party, the proceeds thereof shall be applied to pay the Obligations of such Loan Party as otherwise provided herein without giving effect to such Excluded Swap Obligations and each reference in this Agreement or any other Loan Document to the ratable application of such amounts as among the Obligations or any specified portion of the Obligations that would otherwise include such Excluded Swap Obligations shall be deemed so to provide, but appropriate adjustments shall be made with respect to payments from the other Loan Parties (or on account of their assets) to preserve the ratable application thereof as set forth in this Agreement.
SECTION 1.06Limited Condition Acquisitions. In connection with the incurrence of any Indebtedness or Liens or the making of any Investments, Restricted Payments, prepayments of Restricted Indebtedness, Dispositions or fundamental changes or the designation of any Subsidiaries or Unrestricted Subsidiaries, in each case, in connection with a Limited Condition Acquisition (any of the foregoing, an 'LCA Action' and collectively, the 'LCA Actions'), for purposes of determining compliance with any provision of this Agreement which requires that no Default or Event of Default has occurred, is continuing or would result from any such LCA Action or that the representations and warranties shall be true and correct (or true and correct in all material respects), as applicable, such condition shall, at the option of the Company (the Company's election to exercise such option in connection with any Limited Condition Acquisition, an 'LCA Election'), be deemed satisfied, so long as no Default or Event of Default exists and the representations and warranties are true and correct (or true and correct in all material respects, as applicable) on the date the definitive agreements for such Limited Condition Acquisition are entered into (the 'LCA Test Date') and no Event of Default under clause (a), (b), (h) or (i) of Article VII shall have occurred and is continuing on the effective date of such LCA Action. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Company has exercised the LCA Election, and any Default or Event of Default occurs (including as a result of the representations and warranties not being true and correct) following the LCA Test Date and prior to the consummation of such Limited Condition Acquisition, any such Default or Event of Default shall be deemed to not have occurred or be continuing for purposes of determining whether any action being taken in connection with such Limited Condition Acquisition is permitted hereunder.
(a)In connection with any LCA Action, for purposes of:
(i)determining compliance with any provision of this Agreement which requires the calculation of the Secured Net Leverage Ratio, Total Net Leverage Ratio or Interest Coverage Ratio; or
(ii)testing baskets set forth in this Agreement;


in each case, upon the LCA Election, the date of determination of whether any such action is permitted hereunder, shall be the LCA Test Date, and if, after giving effect to the Limited Condition Acquisition and the other transactions to be entered into in connection therewith (including any incurrence of Indebtedness and the use of proceeds thereof) on a Pro Forma Basis as if they had occurred at the beginning of the most recent four consecutive fiscal quarters ending prior to the LCA Test Date for which consolidated financial statements of the Company are available, the Company could have taken such action on the relevant LCA Test Date in compliance with such ratio or basket, such ratio or basket shall be deemed to have been complied with. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Company has made an LCA Election and any of the ratios or baskets for which compliance was determined or tested as of the LCA Test Date are exceeded as a result of fluctuations in any such ratio or basket, including due to fluctuations in Consolidated EBITDA of the Company or the Person subject to such Limited Condition Acquisition, at or prior to the consummation of the relevant transaction or action, such baskets or ratios will not be deemed to have been exceeded as a result of such fluctuations. If the Company has made an LCA Election for any Limited Condition Acquisition, then in connection with any subsequent calculation of any ratio or basket availability with respect to the incurrence of any Indebtedness or Liens or the making of any Investments, Restricted Payments, prepayments of Restricted Indebtedness, Dispositions or fundamental changes or the designation of any Subsidiaries or Unrestricted Subsidiaries, in each case on or following the relevant LCA Test Date and prior to the earlier of the date on which such Limited Condition Acquisition is consummated or the definitive agreement for such Limited Condition Acquisition is terminated or expires without consummation of such Limited Condition Acquisition, any such ratio or basket shall be calculated both (y) on a Pro Forma Basis assuming such Limited Condition Acquisition and other transactions in connection therewith (including any incurrence of Indebtedness and the use of proceeds thereof) have been consummated and (z) assuming such Limited Condition Acquisition and other transactions in connection therewith have not been consummated.
SECTION 1.07Exchange Rates; Currency Equivalents; Rates. (a) The Administrative Agent or the applicable Issuing Lender, as applicable, shall determine the Dollar Equivalent amounts of Revolving Extensions of Credit and Revolving Outstanding Amounts denominated in Alternative Currencies. Such Dollar Equivalent shall become effective as of such Revaluation Date and shall be the Dollar Equivalent of such amounts until the next Revaluation Date to occur. Except for purposes of financial statements delivered by the Company hereunder or calculating financial covenants hereunder or except as otherwise provided herein, the applicable amount of any currency (other than Dollars) for purposes of the Loan Documents shall be such Dollar Equivalent amount as so determined by the Administrative Agent or the applicable Issuing Lender, as applicable.
(b)Wherever in this Agreement in connection with a Borrowing, conversion, continuation or prepayment of an Alternative Currency Loan or the issuance, amendment or extension of a Letter of Credit, an amount, such as a required minimum or multiple amount, is expressed in Dollars, but such Borrowing, Loan or Letter of Credit is denominated in an Alternative Currency, such amount shall be the relevant Alternative Currency Equivalent of such Dollar amount (rounded to the nearest unit of such Alternative Currency, with 0.5 of a unit being rounded upward), as determined by the Administrative Agent or the applicable Issuing Lender, as the case may be.
(c)The Administrative Agent does not warrant, nor accept responsibility, nor shall the Administrative Agent have any liability with respect to the administration, submission or any other matter related to the rates in the definition of 'Alternative Currency Daily Rate', 'Alternative Currency Term Rate', 'Eurocurrency Rate' or with respect to any rate (including, for the avoidance of doubt, the selection of such rate and any related spread or other adjustment)


that is an alternative or replacement for or successor to any of such rate (including, without limitation, any Benchmark Replacement and any Successor Rate) or the effect of any of the foregoing, or of any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes or Conforming Changes.
SECTION 1.08Additional Alternative Currencies. (a) The Company may from time to time request that Alternative Currency Loans be made and/or Letters of Credit be issued in a currency other than those specifically listed in the definition of 'Alternative Currency;' provided that such requested currency is an Eligible Currency. In the case of any such request with respect to the making of Alternative Currency Loans, such request shall be subject to the approval of the Administrative Agent and the Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Lenders; and in the case of any such request with respect to the issuance of Letters of Credit, such request shall be subject to the approval of the Administrative Agent and the applicable Issuing Lender.
(b)Any such request shall be made to the Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m., 20 Business Days prior to the date of the desired Borrowing or issuance of a Letter of Credit (or such other time or date as may be agreed by the Administrative Agent and, in the case of any such request pertaining to Letters of Credit, the applicable Issuing Lender, in its or their sole discretion). In the case of any such request pertaining to Alternative Currency Loans, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Lender thereof; and in the case of any such request pertaining to Letters of Credit, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the applicable Issuing Lender thereof. Each Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Lender (in the case of any such request pertaining to Alternative Currency Loans) or the applicable Issuing Lender (in the case of a request pertaining to Letters of Credit) shall notify the Administrative Agent, not later than 11:00 a.m., ten Business Days after receipt of such request whether it consents, in its sole discretion, to the making of Alternative Currency Loans or the issuance of Letters of Credit, as the case may be, in such requested currency.
(c)Any failure by a Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Lender or an Issuing Lender, as the case may be, to respond to such request within the time period specified in the preceding sentence shall be deemed to be a refusal by such Lender or such Issuing Lender, as the case may be, to permit Alternative Currency Loans to be made or Letters of Credit to be issued in such requested currency. If the Administrative Agent and all the Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Lenders consent to making Alternative Currency Loans in such requested currency and the Administrative Agent and the Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Lenders determine that there is an appropriate interest rate to be used for such requested currency, the Administrative Agent shall so notify the Company and (i) the Administrative Agent and such Lenders may amend the definition of Alternative Currency Daily Rate or Alternative Currency Term Rate to the extent necessary to add the applicable rate for such currency and any applicable adjustment for such rate and (ii) to the extent the definition of Alternative Currency Daily Rate or Alternative Currency Term Rate, as applicable, reflects the appropriate interest rate for such currency or has been amended to reflect the appropriate rate for such currency, such currency shall thereupon be deemed for all purposes to be an Alternative Currency for purposes of any Borrowings of Alternative Currency Loans; and if the Administrative Agent and the applicable Issuing Lender consent to the issuance of Letters of Credit in such requested currency, the Administrative Agent shall so notify the Company and (A) the Administrative Agent and the applicable Issuing Lender may amend the definition of Alternative Currency Daily Rate or Alternative Currency Term Rate, as applicable, to the extent necessary to add the applicable rate for such currency and any applicable adjustment for such rate and (B) to the extent the definition of Alternative Currency Daily Rate or Alternative Currency Term Rate, as applicable, has been amended to reflect the


appropriate rate for such currency, such currency shall thereupon be deemed for all purposes to be an Alternative Currency, for purposes of any Letter of Credit issuances by such Issuing Lender. If the Administrative Agent shall fail to obtain consent to any request for an additional currency under this Section 1.08, the Administrative Agent shall promptly so notify the Company. Any specified currency of an Existing Letter of Credit that is neither Dollars nor one of the Alternative Currencies specifically listed in the definition of 'Alternative Currency' shall be deemed an Alternative Currency with respect to such Existing Letter of Credit only.
SECTION 1.09Change of Currency. (a) Each obligation of the Borrowers to make a payment denominated in the national currency unit of any member state of the European Union that adopts the Euro as its lawful currency after the date hereof shall be redenominated into Euro at the time of such adoption. If, in relation to the currency of any such member state, the basis of accrual of interest expressed in this Agreement in respect of that currency shall be inconsistent with any convention or practice in the London interbank market for the basis of accrual of interest in respect of the Euro, such expressed basis shall be replaced by such convention or practice with effect from the date on which such member state adopts the Euro as its lawful currency; provided that if any Borrowing in the currency of such member state is outstanding immediately prior to such date, such replacement shall take effect, with respect to such Borrowing, at the end of the then current Interest Period.
(b)Each provision of this Agreement shall be subject to such reasonable changes of construction as the Administrative Agent may from time to time specify to be appropriate to reflect the adoption of the Euro by any member state of the European Union and any relevant market conventions or practices relating to the Euro.
(c)Each provision of this Agreement also shall be subject to such reasonable changes of construction as the Administrative Agent may from time to time specify to be appropriate to reflect a change in currency of any other country and any relevant market conventions or practices relating to the change in currency.
SECTION 1.10Times of Day. Unless otherwise specified, all references herein to times of day shall be references to Eastern time (daylight or standard, as applicable).
SECTION 1.11Letter of Credit Amounts. Unless otherwise specified herein, the amount of a Letter of Credit at any time shall be deemed to be the Dollar Equivalent of the stated amount of such Letter of Credit in effect at such time; provided, however, that with respect to any Letter of Credit that, by its terms or the terms of any Issuer Document related thereto, provides for one or more automatic increases in the stated amount thereof, the amount of such Letter of Credit shall be deemed to be the Dollar Equivalent of the maximum stated amount of such Letter of Credit after giving effect to all such increases, whether or not such maximum stated amount is in effect at such time.

SECTION 2.02Loans and Borrowings. (a) (i) Each Term Loan shall be made as part of a Borrowing made by the Lenders ratably in accordance with their Term Commitments of the applicable Class. The failure of any Term Lender to make any Term Loan required to be made by it shall not relieve any other Term Lender of its obligations hereunder; provided that the Term Commitments of the Term Lenders are several and no Term Lender shall be responsible for any other Term Lender's failure to make Loans as required.
(ii)Each Revolving Loan shall be made as part of a Borrowing consisting of Revolving Loans of the same Class and Type made by the applicable Lenders ratably in accordance with their Revolving Commitments of the applicable Class.

(c)At the commencement of each Interest Period for any Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing or Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing, such Borrowing shall be in an aggregate amount that is an integral multiple of the Borrowing Multiple and not less than the Borrowing Minimum; provided that a Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing or an Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing that results from a continuation of an outstanding Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing or an outstanding Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing, as the case may be, may be in an aggregate amount that is equal to such outstanding Borrowing. At the time that each Alternative Currency Daily Rate Borrowing is made, such Borrowing shall be in an aggregate amount that is an integral multiple of the Borrowing Multiple and not less than the Borrowing Minimum. At the time that each Base Rate Borrowing is made, such Borrowing shall be in an aggregate amount that is an integral multiple of the Borrowing Multiple and not less than $1,000,000 (provided that the Swingline Lender may request, on behalf of the Borrowers, borrowings under the Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments that are Base Rate Loans in other amounts pursuant to Section 2.05(a)). Borrowings of more than one Type and Class may be outstanding at the same time; provided that there shall not at any time be more than ten (10) Interest Periods in effect in respect of the Initial Term Facility and ten (10) Interest Periods in effect in respect of the Revolving Facilities.
(d)Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no Borrower shall be entitled to request, or to elect to convert to or continue, any Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing or Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing if the Interest Period requested with respect thereto would end after the Maturity Date applicable thereto.
SECTION 2.03Requests for Borrowings. (a) To request a Borrowing (other than a Borrowing of Swingline Loans), the applicable Borrower (or the Company on behalf of the applicable Borrower) shall notify the Administrative Agent, which notice may be given by a Borrowing Request or telephone (provided that any telephonic notice must be confirmed immediately by delivery to the Administrative Agent of a Borrowing Request), not later than 11:00 a.m., (a) in the case of a Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing, three Business Days (or, in the case of the Term Loan Borrowing to be made on the Closing Date, such shorter period as may be agreed by the Administrative Agent) before the date of the proposed Borrowing (or such shorter period of time as may be agreed to by the Administrative Agent and the Lenders), (b) in the case of a Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency (other than a Special Notice Currency), four Business Days before the date of the proposed Borrowing (or such shorter period of time as may be agreed to by the Administrative Agent and the Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Lenders), (c) in the case of a Borrowing denominated in a Special Notice Currency, five Business Days before the date of the proposed Borrowing (or such shorter period of time as may be agreed to by the Administrative Agent and the Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Lenders), and (d) on the requested date of any Base Rate Borrowing (or such shorter period of time as may be agreed to by the Administrative Agent and the Lenders); provided that if any Borrower wishes to request Eurocurrency Rate Loans or Alternative Currency Term Rate Loans having an Interest Period other than one, three or six months in duration as provided in the definition of 'Interest Period,' the applicable notice must be received by the Administrative Agent at least one Business Day earlier than that otherwise provided in this Section 2.03(a), whereupon the Administrative Agent shall give prompt notice to the Lenders of such request and determine whether the requested Interest Period is acceptable to all of them. Not later than 11:00 a.m., (i) three Business Days before the requested date of such Borrowing, conversion or continuation of Eurocurrency Rate Loans, or (ii) four Business Days (or five Business days in the case of


a Special Notice Currency) prior to the requested date of such Borrowing of Loans denominated in Alternative Currencies, the Administrative Agent shall notify the applicable Borrower (which notice may be by telephone) whether or not the requested Interest Period has been consented to by all the Lenders. Each such Borrowing Request shall be irrevocable, except that a Borrowing Request may be conditioned on the occurrence of any subsequent event (including a Permitted Acquisition or other Investment), in which case, such notice may be revoked by the applicable Borrower (by written notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date of such funding) if such event does not occur. Each such written Borrowing Request shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:
(i)the name of the applicable Borrower;
(ii)whether the requested Borrowing is to be a Term Loan Borrowing, an Incremental Term Loan Borrowing of a particular Series or a Revolving Loan Borrowing;
(iii)the aggregate amount of such Borrowing;
(iv)the date of such Borrowing, which shall be a Business Day;
(v)whether such Borrowing is to be a Base Rate Borrowing, a Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing, an Alternative Currency Daily Rate Borrowing or an Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing and, in the case of a Revolving Loan Borrowing in Dollars, whether such Borrowing is to be a Dollar Tranche Revolving Borrowing or a Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Borrowing;
(vi)in the case of an Alternative Currency Daily Rate Borrowing or an Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing, the currency of such Borrowing;
(vii)in the case of a Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing or an Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing, the initial Interest Period to be applicable thereto, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term 'Interest Period'; and
(viii)the Applicable Funding Account.
If no election as to the Type of Borrowing is specified, then the requested Borrowing shall be a Base Rate Borrowing and if no election as to the currency of Borrowing is specified, then the requested Borrowing shall be made in Dollars made under the Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments. If no Interest Period is specified with respect to any requested Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing or Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing, then the relevant Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month's duration. Promptly following receipt of a Borrowing Request in accordance with this Section 2.03, the Administrative Agent shall advise each Lender of the applicable Class of the details thereof and of the amount (and currency) of such Lender's Loan to be made as part of the requested Borrowing.
SECTION 2.04Swingline Commitments. (a) Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, from time to time during the Revolving Commitment Period, the Swingline Lender may, in its discretion, make a portion of the credit otherwise available to the Company under the Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments by making swing line loans ('Swingline Loans') in Dollars to the Company; provided that (i) the sum of (x) the Swingline Exposure of such Swingline Lender (in its capacity as a Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender), (y) the aggregate principal amount of outstanding Dollar Tranche Revolving Loans made by such Swingline Lender (in its capacity as a Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender) and (z) the L/C Exposure of such Swingline Lender (in its capacity as a Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender) shall not


exceed its Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitment then in effect, (ii) the sum of the outstanding Swingline Loans shall not exceed the Swingline Commitment, (iii) the Company shall not request, and no Swingline Lender shall make, any Swingline Loan if, after giving effect to the making of such Swingline Loan, the aggregate amount of the Available Revolving Commitments with respect to the Dollar Tranche Revolving Lenders would be less than zero and (iv) the Swingline Lender shall not be under any obligation to make any Swingline Loan if it shall determine (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) that it has, or by such Swingline Loan may have, Fronting Exposure. During the Revolving Commitment Period, the Company may use the Swingline Commitment by borrowing, repaying and reborrowing, all in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof. Swingline Loans shall be Base Rate Loans only; provided that the Swingline Lender may, at its discretion, provide for an alternate rate of interest on Swingline Loans agreed to by the Company and the Swingline Lender (which alternate rate of interest shall apply only so long as the Swingline Lender has not requested that the Dollar Tranche Revolving Lenders fund Refunded Swingline Loans to refinance, or to purchase and fund risk participations in, such Swingline Loans pursuant to Section 2.05(b)) (such alternate rate, the 'Alternative Swingline Rate').
(b)The Company shall repay to the Swingline Lender the then unpaid principal amount of each Swingline Loan on the earlier of the Revolving Termination Date and five Business Days after such Swingline Loan is made; provided that on each date that a Dollar Tranche Revolving Loan is borrowed, the Company shall repay all Swingline Loans then outstanding and the proceeds of any such Dollar Tranche Revolving Loans shall be applied by the Administrative Agent to repay any Swingline Loans outstanding.
SECTION 2.05Procedure for Swingline Borrowing; Refunding of Swingline Loans. (a) Whenever the Company desires that the Swingline Lender make Swingline Loans it shall give the Swingline Lender irrevocable telephonic notice confirmed promptly in writing (which telephonic notice must be received by the Swingline Lender not later than 1:00 p.m. on the date of the proposed Borrowing), substantially in the form of Exhibit B-2 or any other form approved by the Swingline Lender, specifying (i) the amount to be borrowed and (ii) the requested date of Borrowing (which shall be a Business Day during the Revolving Commitment Period). Each borrowing under the Swingline Commitment shall be in an amount equal to $500,000 or a whole multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof. Not later than 3:00 p.m. on the proposed Borrowing date specified in a notice in respect of Swingline Loans, the Swingline Lender shall make available to the Administrative Agent at the Funding Office an amount in immediately available funds equal to the requested Swingline Loan. The Administrative Agent shall make the proceeds of such Swingline Loan available to the Company on such Borrowing date by depositing such proceeds in the account of the Company with the Administrative Agent on such Borrowing date in immediately available funds.
(b)The Swingline Lender, at any time and from time to time in its sole and absolute discretion may, on behalf of the Company (which hereby irrevocably directs the Swingline Lender to act on its behalf), on one Business Days' notice given by such Swingline Lender no later than 12:00 Noon request each Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender to make, and each Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender hereby agrees to make, a Dollar Tranche Revolving Loan, in an amount equal to such Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender's Dollar Tranche Applicable Percentage of the aggregate amount of the Swingline Loans (the 'Refunded Swingline Loans') outstanding on the date of such notice, to repay the Swingline Lender. Each Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender shall make the amount of such Dollar Tranche Revolving Loan available to the Administrative Agent at the Funding Office in Same Day Funds (and the Administrative Agent may apply Cash Collateral available with respect to the applicable Swingline Loan) not later than 10:00 a.m. one


Business Day after the date of such notice. The proceeds of such Dollar Tranche Revolving Loans shall be immediately made available by the Administrative Agent to the Swingline Lender for application by the Swingline Lender to the repayment of the Refunded Swingline Loans. The Company irrevocably authorizes the Swingline Lender to charge the Company's accounts with the Administrative Agent (up to the amount available in each such account) in order to immediately pay the amount of such Refunded Swingline Loans to the extent amounts received from the Dollar Tranche Revolving Lenders are not sufficient to repay in full such Refunded Swingline Loans.
(c)If prior to the time a Dollar Tranche Revolving Loan would have otherwise been made pursuant to Section 2.05(b), one of the events described in clause (h) or (i) of Article VII shall have occurred and be continuing with respect to the Company or if for any other reason, as determined by any Swingline Lender in its sole discretion, Dollar Tranche Revolving Loans may not be made as contemplated by Section 2.05(b), each Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender shall, on the date such Dollar Tranche Revolving Loan was to have been made pursuant to the notice referred to in Section 2.05(b), purchase for cash an undivided participating interest in the then outstanding Swingline Loans by paying to the Swingline Lender an amount (the 'Swingline Participation Amount') equal to (i) such Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender's Dollar Tranche Applicable Percentage times (ii) the sum of the aggregate principal amount of Swingline Loans of the Swingline Lender then outstanding that were to have been repaid with such Dollar Tranche Revolving Loans.
(d)Whenever, at any time after the Swingline Lender has received from any Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender such Lender's Swingline Participation Amount, the Swingline Lender receives any payment on account of the Swingline Loans, the Swingline Lender will distribute to such Lender its ratable portion of such payment (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to reflect the period of time during which such Lender's participating interest was outstanding and funded and, in the case of principal and interest payments, to reflect such Lender's pro rata portion of such payment if such payment is not sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on all Swingline Loans then due); provided, however, that in the event that such payment received by the Swingline Lender is required to be returned, such Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender will return to the Swingline Lender any portion thereof previously distributed to it by the Swingline Lender.
(e)Each Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender's obligation to make the Loans referred to in Section 2.05(b) and to purchase participating interests pursuant to Section 2.05(c) shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (i) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right that such Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender or the Company may have against the Swingline Lender, the Company or any other Person for any reason whatsoever, (ii) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or an Event of Default or the failure to satisfy any of the other conditions specified in Article IV, (iii) any adverse change in the condition (financial or otherwise) of the Company, (iv) any breach of this Agreement or any other Loan Document by the Company, any other Loan Party or any other Revolving Lender or (v) any other circumstance, happening or event whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing.


SECTION 2.06Letters of Credit. (a) L/C Commitment.
(i)Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, each Issuing Lender, in reliance on the agreements of the other Dollar Tranche Revolving Lenders set forth in Section 2.06(d)(i), agrees, from time to time on any Business Day during the period from the Closing Date until the Letter of Credit Expiration Date, to issue standby letters of credit ('Letters of Credit') for the account of the Company or any Subsidiary (including, to the extent not prohibited by Section 6.04, Unrestricted Subsidiaries) and to amend or extend Letters of Credit previously issued by it, in accordance with subsection (b) below, on any Business Day during the Revolving Commitment Period in such form as may be approved from time to time by such Issuing Lender; provided that, after giving effect to any issuance, amendment, increase or extension of any Letter of Credit, (w) the sum of the total Dollar Tranche Revolving Credit Exposures shall not exceed the aggregate Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments, (x) the Dollar Tranche Revolving Credit Exposure of any Lender shall not exceed such Lender's Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitment, (y) the sum of the total Revolving Credit Exposures denominated in an Alternative Currency shall not exceed the Alternative Currency Sublimit and (z) the L/C Exposure shall not exceed the L/C Commitment. Each request by the Company for the issuance, amendment, increase or extension of any Letter of Credit shall be deemed to be a representation by the Company that such requested issuance, amendment, increase or extension, as applicable, complies with the conditions set forth in the proviso to the preceding sentence. Each Letter of Credit shall be denominated in Dollars or one or more Alternative Currencies. All letters of credit identified on Schedule 2.06 (the 'Existing Letters of Credit') shall be deemed to have been issued pursuant hereto, and from and after the Closing Date shall be subject to and governed by the terms and conditions hereof.
(ii)No Issuing Lender shall issue any Letter of Credit, if:
(A)subject to Section 2.06(b)(iii), the expiry date of the requested Letter of Credit would occur more than twelve months after the date of issuance or last extension, unless the Majority in Interest of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Lenders have approved such expiry date; or
(B)the expiry date of the requested Letter of Credit would occur more than 12 months after the Revolving Termination Date, unless all the Dollar Tranche Revolving Lenders have approved such expiry date.
(iii)No Issuing Lender shall be under any obligation to issue any Letter of Credit if:
(A)any order, judgment or decree of any Governmental Authority or arbitrator shall by its terms purport to enjoin or restrain such Issuing Lender from issuing the Letter of Credit, or any Requirement of Law applicable to such Issuing Lender or any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over such Issuing Lender shall prohibit, or request that such Issuing Lender refrain from, the issuance of letters of


credit generally or the Letter of Credit in particular or shall impose upon such Issuing Lender with respect to the Letter of Credit any restriction, reserve or capital requirement (for which such Issuing Lender is not otherwise compensated hereunder) not in effect on the Closing Date, or shall impose upon such Issuing Lender any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which was not applicable on the Closing Date and which such Issuing Lender in good faith deems material to it;
(B)the issuance of the Letter of Credit would violate one or more policies of such Issuing Lender applicable to letters of credit generally;
(C)except as otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent and such Issuing Lender, the Letter of Credit is in an initial stated amount less than $250,000;
(D)except as otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent and such Issuing Lender, the Letter of Credit is to be denominated in a currency other than Dollars or an Alternative Currency;
(E)such Issuing Lender does not as of the issuance date of the requested Letter of Credit issue Letters of Credit in the requested currency;
(F)any Lender is at that time a Defaulting Lender, unless such Issuing Lender has entered into arrangements, including the delivery of Cash Collateral, satisfactory to the Issuing Lender (in its sole discretion) with the Company or such Lender to eliminate the Issuing Lender's actual or potential Fronting Exposure (after giving effect to Section 2.18(a)(iv)) with respect to the Defaulting Lender arising from either the Letter of Credit then proposed to be issued or that Letter of Credit and all other L/C Obligations as to which such Issuing Lender has actual or potential Fronting Exposure, as it may elect in its sole discretion; or
(G)the Letter of Credit contains any provisions for automatic reinstatement of the stated amount after any drawing thereunder.
(iv)No Issuing Lender shall amend any Letter of Credit if such Issuing Lender would not be permitted at such time to issue the Letter of Credit in its amended form under the terms hereof.
(v)No Issuing Lender shall be under any obligation to amend any Letter of Credit if (A) such Issuing Lender would have no obligation at such time to issue the Letter of Credit in its amended form under the terms hereof, or (B) the beneficiary of the Letter of Credit does not accept the proposed amendment to the Letter of Credit.
(vi)Each Issuing Lender shall act on behalf of the Lenders with respect to any Letters of Credit issued by it and the documents associated therewith, and such


Issuing Lender shall have all of the benefits and immunities (A) provided to the Administrative Agent in Article VIII with respect to any acts taken or omissions suffered by such Issuing Lender in connection with Letters of Credit issued by it or proposed to be issued by it and Issuer Documents pertaining to such Letters of Credit as fully as if the term 'Administrative Agent' as used in Article VIII included such Issuing Lender with respect to such acts or omissions, and (B) as additionally provided herein with respect to such Issuing Lender.
(b)Procedure for Issuance and Amendment of Letters of Credit; Auto-Extension Letters of Credit.
(i)Each Letter of Credit shall be issued or amended, as the case may be, upon the request of the Company delivered to the applicable Issuing Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) in the form of an Application, appropriately completed and signed by an Authorized Officer of the Company. Such Application may be sent by facsimile, by United States mail, by overnight courier, by electronic transmission using the system provided by the applicable Issuing Lender, by personal delivery or by any other means acceptable to such Issuing Lender. Such Application must be received by the applicable Issuing Lender and the Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m. at least two Business Days (or such later date and time as the Administrative Agent and such Issuing Lender may agree in a particular instance in their sole discretion) prior to the proposed issuance date or date of amendment, as the case may be. In the case of a request for an initial issuance of a Letter of Credit, such Application shall specify in form and detail satisfactory to the applicable Issuing Lender: (A) the proposed issuance date of the requested Letter of Credit (which shall be a Business Day); (B) the amount and currency thereof and in the absence of specification of currency shall be deemed a request for a Letter of Credit denominated in Dollars; (C) the expiry date thereof; (D) the name and address of the beneficiary thereof; (E) the documents to be presented by such beneficiary in case of any drawing thereunder; (F) the full text of any certificate to be presented by such beneficiary in case of any drawing thereunder; (G) the purpose and nature of the requested Letter of Credit; and (H) such other matters as such Issuing Lender may require. In the case of a request for an amendment of any outstanding Letter of Credit, such Application shall specify in form and detail satisfactory to the applicable Issuing Lender (A) the Letter of Credit to be amended; (B) the proposed date of amendment thereof (which shall be a Business Day); (C) the nature of the proposed amendment; and (D) such other matters as such Issuing Lender may require. Additionally, the Company shall furnish to the applicable Issuing Lender and the Administrative Agent such other documents and information pertaining to such requested Letter of Credit issuance or amendment, including any Issuer Documents, as such Issuing Lender or the Administrative Agent may require.
(ii)Promptly after receipt of any Application, the applicable Issuing Lender will confirm with the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) that the Administrative Agent has received a copy of such Application from the Company and, if not, such Issuing Lender will provide the Administrative Agent with a copy thereof. Unless the applicable Issuing Lender has received written notice from any Lender, the Administrative Agent or any Loan Party, at least one Business Day prior to the requested date of issuance or amendment of the applicable Letter of Credit, that one or more applicable conditions contained in Article IV shall not then be satisfied, then, subject to


the terms and conditions hereof, such Issuing Lender shall, on the requested date, issue a Letter of Credit for the account of the Company (or the applicable Subsidiary) or enter into the applicable amendment, as the case may be, in each case in accordance with such Issuing Lender's usual and customary business practices.
(iii)If the Company so requests in any applicable Application, an Issuing Lender may, in its sole discretion, agree to issue a Letter of Credit that has automatic extension provisions (each, an 'Auto-Extension Letter of Credit'); provided that any such Auto-Extension Letter of Credit must permit the applicable Issuing Lender to prevent any such extension at least once in each twelve-month period (commencing with the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit) by giving prior notice to the beneficiary thereof not later than a day (the 'Non-Extension Notice Date') in each such twelve-month period to be agreed upon at the time such Letter of Credit is issued. Unless otherwise directed by the applicable Issuing Lender, the Company shall not be required to make a specific request to such Issuing Lender for any such extension. Once an Auto-Extension Letter of Credit has been issued, the Lenders shall be deemed to have authorized (but may not require) the applicable Issuing Lender to permit the extension of such Letter of Credit at any time to an expiry date not later than twelve months after the Revolving Termination Date; provided, however, that the applicable Issuing Lender shall not permit any such extension if (A) such Issuing Lender has determined that it would not be permitted, or would have no obligation, at such time to issue such Letter of Credit in its revised form (as extended) under the terms hereof (by reason of the provisions of clause (ii) or (iii) of Section 2.06(a) or otherwise), or (B) it has received notice (which may be by telephone or in writing) on or before the day that is seven Business Days before the Non-Extension Notice Date (1) from the Administrative Agent that the Majority in Interest of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Lenders have elected not to permit such extension or (2) from the Administrative Agent, any Lender or the Company that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Section 4.02 is not then satisfied, and in each such case directing the applicable Issuing Lender not to permit such extension.
(iv)If the Company so requests in any applicable Application, the applicable Issuing Lender may, in its sole discretion, agree to issue a Letter of Credit that permits the automatic reinstatement of all or a portion of the stated amount thereof after any drawing thereunder (each, an 'Auto-Reinstatement Letter of Credit'). Unless otherwise directed by an Issuing Lender, the Company shall not be required to make a specific request to such Issuing Lender to permit such reinstatement. Once an Auto-Reinstatement Letter of Credit has been issued, except as provided in the following sentence, the Lenders shall be deemed to have authorized (but may not require) the applicable Issuing Lender to reinstate all or a portion of the stated amount thereof in accordance with the provisions of such Letter of Credit. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if such Auto-Reinstatement Letter of Credit permits the applicable Issuing Lender to decline to reinstate all or any portion of the stated amount thereof after a drawing thereunder by giving notice of such non-reinstatement within a specified number of days after such drawing (the 'Non-Reinstatement Deadline'), such Issuing Lender shall not permit such reinstatement if it has received a notice (which may be by telephone or in writing) on or before the day that is seven Business Days before the Non-Reinstatement Deadline (A) from the Administrative Agent that the Majority in Interest of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Lenders have elected not to permit such reinstatement or (B) from the Administrative Agent, any Lender or the Company that one or more of the applicable


conditions specified in Section 4.02 is not then satisfied (treating such reinstatement as a Revolving Extension of Credit for purposes of this clause) and, in each case, directing the applicable Issuing Lender not to permit such reinstatement.
(v)Promptly after its delivery of any Letter of Credit or any amendment to a Letter of Credit to an advising bank with respect thereto or to the beneficiary thereof, the applicable Issuing Lender will also deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent a true and complete copy of such Letter of Credit or amendment.
(c)Fees and Other Charges. (i) The Company will pay a fee on the maximum amount available to be drawn under each Letter of Credit that is issued and outstanding at a per annum rate equal to (i) 1.00% with respect to the first $100,000,000 of issued and outstanding Letters of Credit and (ii) the Applicable Rate then in effect with respect to Dollar Tranche Revolving Loans that are Eurocurrency Rate Loans with respect to the remaining amount of issued and outstanding Letters of Credit, shared ratably among the Dollar Tranche Revolving Lenders and payable quarterly in arrears on each Fee Payment Date after the issuance date. In addition, the Company shall pay to each Issuing Lender for its own account a fronting fee of 0.125% per annum on the undrawn and unexpired amount of each Letter of Credit, payable quarterly in arrears on each Fee Payment Date after the issuance date.
(ii)In addition to the foregoing fees, the Company shall pay or reimburse each Issuing Lender for such normal and customary costs and expenses as are incurred or charged by such Issuing Lender in issuing, negotiating, effecting payment under, amending or otherwise administering any Letter of Credit.
(d)L/C Participations. (i) Each Issuing Lender irrevocably agrees to grant and hereby grants to each L/C Participant, and, to induce such Issuing Lender to issue Letters of Credit, each L/C Participant irrevocably agrees to accept and purchase and hereby accepts and purchases from such Issuing Lender, on the terms and conditions set forth below, immediately upon the issuance of a Letter of Credit, for such L/C Participant's own account and risk an undivided interest equal to such L/C Participant's Dollar Tranche Applicable Percentage in such Issuing Lender's obligations and rights under and in respect of each Letter of Credit and the amount of each draft paid by such Issuing Lender thereunder. Each L/C Participant agrees with each such Issuing Lender that, if a draft is paid under any Letter of Credit for which such Issuing Lender is not reimbursed in full by the Company in accordance with the terms of this Agreement (or in the event that any reimbursement received by such Issuing Lender shall be required to be returned by it at any time), such L/C Participant shall pay upon demand an amount in Dollars, to the Administrative Agent, at the Administrative Agent's office for Dollar-denominated payments, equal to such L/C Participant's Dollar Tranche Applicable Percentage of the amount that is not so reimbursed (or is so returned) not later than 1:00 p.m. on the Business Day specified in the demand therefore. The Administrative Agent shall remit the funds so received to the applicable Issuing Lender in Dollars. Each L/C Participant's obligation to pay such amount shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (i) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right that such L/C Participant may have against such Issuing Lender, the Company or any other Person for any reason whatsoever, (ii) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or an Event of Default or the failure to satisfy any of the other conditions specified in Article IV, (iii) any adverse change in the condition (financial or otherwise) of the Company, (iv) any breach of this Agreement or any other Loan Document by the Company, any other Loan Party or any other L/C Participant or (v) any other circumstance,


happening or event whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing. If any Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Issuing Lender any amount required to be paid by such Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.06(d) by the time specified herein, then, without limiting the other provisions of this Agreement, the applicable Issuing Lender shall be entitled to recover from such Lender (acting through the Administrative Agent), on demand, such amount with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to such Issuing Lender at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight Rate from time to time in effect, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by such Issuing Lender in connection with the foregoing.
(ii)If any payment received by the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Issuing Lender pursuant to Section 2.06(d)(i) is required to be returned under any of the circumstances (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by such Issuing Lender in its discretion), each Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Issuing Lender its Applicable Percentage thereof on demand of the Administrative Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such amount is returned by such Lender, at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight Rate from time to time in effect. The obligations of the Lenders under this clause shall survive the payment in full of the Obligations and the termination of this Agreement.
(iii)Whenever, at any time after an Issuing Lender has made payment under any Letter of Credit and has received from any L/C Participant its pro rata share of such payment in accordance with Section 2.06(d)(i), such Issuing Lender receives any payment related to such Letter of Credit (whether directly from the Company or otherwise, including proceeds of collateral applied thereto by such Issuing Lender), or any payment of interest on account thereof, such Issuing Lender will distribute to such L/C Participant its pro rata share thereof; provided, however, that in the event that any such payment received by such Issuing Lender shall be required to be returned by such Issuing Lender, such L/C Participant shall return to such Issuing Lender the portion thereof previously distributed by such Issuing Lender to it.
(e)Reimbursement Obligation of the Company. If any draft is paid under any Letter of Credit, the Company shall reimburse the applicable Issuing Lender for the amount of (i) the draft so paid and (ii) any taxes, fees, charges or other costs or expenses incurred by such Issuing Lender in connection with such payment, not later than 11:00 a.m. on the date of any payment by the applicable Issuing Lender under a Letter of Credit to be reimbursed in Dollars, or the Applicable Time on the date of any payment by the applicable Issuing Lender under a Letter of Credit to be reimbursed in an Alternative Currency (each such date, an 'Honor Date'). Each such payment shall be made to the applicable Issuing Lender at its address for notices referred to herein in immediately available funds. In the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternative Currency, the Company shall reimburse the applicable Issuing Lender in such Alternative Currency, unless (A) such Issuing Lender (at its option) shall have specified in such notice that it will require reimbursement in Dollars, or (B) in the absence of any such requirement for reimbursement in Dollars, the Company shall have notified such Issuing Lender promptly following receipt of the notice of drawing that the Company will reimburse such Issuing Lender in Dollars. In the case of any such reimbursement in Dollars of a drawing under a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternative Currency, the applicable Issuing Lender shall notify the Company of the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of the drawing promptly following the determination


thereof. In the event that (A) a drawing denominated in an Alternative Currency is to be reimbursed in Dollars pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence and (B) the Dollar amount paid by the Company, whether on or after the Honor Date, shall not be adequate on the date of that payment to purchase in accordance with normal banking procedures a sum denominated in the Alternative Currency equal to the drawing, the Company agrees, as a separate and independent obligation, to indemnify the applicable Issuing Lender for the loss resulting from its inability on that date to purchase the Alternative Currency in the full amount of the drawing. If the Company fails to timely reimburse the applicable Issuing Lender on the Honor Date, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender of the Honor Date, the amount of the unreimbursed drawing (expressed in Dollars in the amount of the Dollar Equivalent thereof in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternative Currency) (the 'Unreimbursed Amount'), and the amount of such Lender's Applicable Percentage thereof. In such event, the Company shall be deemed to have requested a Dollar Tranche Revolving Borrowing of Base Rate Loans to be disbursed on the Honor Date in an amount equal to the Unreimbursed Amount, without regard to the minimum and multiples specified in Section 2.02 for the principal amount of Base Rate Loans, but subject to the amount of the unutilized portion of the aggregate Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments and the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 (other than the delivery of a Borrowing Request). Any notice given by an Issuing Lender or the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 2.06(e) may be given by telephone if immediately confirmed in writing; provided that the lack of such an immediate confirmation shall not affect the conclusiveness or binding effect of such notice. Interest shall be payable on any such amounts from the date on which the relevant draft is paid until payment in full at the rate set forth in (A) until the Business Day next succeeding the date of the relevant notice, Section 2.14(a) and (B) thereafter, Section 2.14(f).
(f)Obligations Absolute. The Company's obligations under this Section 2.06 shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable under any and all circumstances and irrespective of any setoff, counterclaim or defense to payment that the Company may have or have had against any Issuing Lender, any beneficiary of a Letter of Credit or any other Person. The Company also agrees with the Issuing Lenders that no Issuing Lenders shall be responsible for, and the Company's Reimbursement Obligations under Section 2.06(e) shall not be affected by, among other things, (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit or this Agreement, or any term or provision therein, (ii) any draft or other document presented under a Letter of Credit proving to be invalid, fraudulent or forged in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect, (iii) any dispute between or among the Company and any beneficiary of any Letter of Credit or any other party to which such Letter of Credit may be transferred or any claims whatsoever of the Company against any beneficiary of such Letter of Credit or any such transferee, (iv) payment by an Issuing Lender under a Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or other document that does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit or any payment by an Issuing Lender under a Letter of Credit to any Person purporting to be a trustee in bankruptcy, debtor-in-possession, assignee for the benefit of creditors, liquidator, receiver or other representative of or successor to any beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit, including any arising in connection with any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law or (v) any other event or circumstance whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, that might, but for the provisions of this Section, constitute a legal or equitable discharge of, or provide a right of setoff against, the Company's obligations hereunder. No Issuing Lender shall have any liability or responsibility by reason of or in connection with the issuance or transfer of any Letter of Credit or any payment or failure to make any payment thereunder (irrespective of any of the circumstances referred to in the preceding sentence), or any error, omission,


interruption, loss or delay in transmission or delivery of any draft, notice or message or advice, however transmitted, in connection with any Letter of Credit (including any document required to make a drawing thereunder), any error in interpretation of technical terms or any consequence arising from causes beyond the control of any Issuing Lender; provided that the foregoing shall not be construed to excuse any Issuing Lender from liability to the Company to the extent of any direct damages (as opposed to special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by the Company to the extent permitted by applicable law) suffered by the Company that are caused by such Issuing Lender's failure to exercise care when determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof. The parties hereto expressly agree that, in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of any Issuing Lender (as finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction), such Issuing Lender shall be deemed to have exercised care in each such determination. In furtherance of the foregoing and without limiting the generality thereof, the parties agree that, with respect to documents presented which appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of a Letter of Credit, an Issuing Lender may, in its sole discretion, either accept and make payment upon such documents without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, or refuse to accept and make payment upon such documents if such documents are not in strict compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit.
The Company shall promptly examine a copy of each Letter of Credit and each amendment thereto that is delivered to it and, in the event of any claim of noncompliance with the Company's instructions or other irregularity, the Company will immediately notify the applicable Issuing Lender. The Company shall be conclusively deemed to have waived any such claim against any Issuing Lender and its correspondents unless such notice is given as aforesaid.
(g)Role of Issuing Lender. Each Lender and the Company agree that, in paying any drawing under a Letter of Credit, the applicable Issuing Lender shall not have any responsibility to obtain any document (other than any sight or time draft, certificates and documents expressly required by the Letter of Credit) or to ascertain or inquire as to the validity or accuracy of any such document or the authority of the Person executing or delivering any such document. None of the Issuing Lender, the Administrative Agent, any of their respective Related Parties nor any correspondent, participant or assignee of the Issuing Lender shall be liable to any Lender for (i) any action taken or omitted in connection herewith at the request or with the approval of the Majority in Interest of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Lenders, all of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Lenders, the Required Lenders or all of the Lenders, as applicable; (ii) any action taken or omitted in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct; or (iii) the due execution, effectiveness, validity or enforceability of any document or instrument related to any Letter of Credit or Issuer Document. The Company hereby assumes all risks of the acts or omissions of any beneficiary or transferee with respect to its use of any Letter of Credit; provided, however, that this assumption is not intended to, and shall not, preclude the Company's pursuing such rights and remedies as it may have against the beneficiary or transferee at law or under any other agreement. None of the applicable Issuing Lender, the Administrative Agent, any of their respective Related Parties nor any correspondent, participant or assignee of the Issuing Lender shall be liable or responsible for any of the matters described in Section 2.06(f); provided, however, that anything in such clauses to the contrary notwithstanding, the Company may have a claim against the applicable Issuing Lender, and the applicable Issuing Lender may be liable to the Company, to the extent, but only to the extent, of any direct, as opposed to consequential or exemplary, damages suffered by the Company which the Company proves, as determined by a


final nonappealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, were caused by such Issuing Lender's willful misconduct or gross negligence or such Issuing Lender's willful failure to pay under any Letter of Credit after the presentation to it by the beneficiary of a sight or time draft and certificate(s) strictly complying with the terms and conditions of a Letter of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, the Issuing Lender may accept documents that appear on their face to be in order, without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, and the applicable Issuing Lender shall not be responsible for the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring, endorsing or assigning or purporting to transfer, endorse or assign a Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason. The applicable Issuing Lender may send a Letter of Credit or conduct any communication to or from the beneficiary via the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication ('SWIFT') message or overnight courier, or any other commercially reasonable means of communicating with a beneficiary.
(h)Letter of Credit Payments. If any draft shall be presented for payment under any Letter of Credit, the applicable Issuing Lender shall promptly notify the Company of the date and amount thereof. The responsibility of any Issuing Lender to the Company in connection with any draft presented for payment under any Letter of Credit shall, in addition to any payment obligation expressly provided for in such Letter of Credit, be limited to determining that the documents (including each draft) delivered under such Letter of Credit in connection with such presentment are substantially in conformity with such Letter of Credit.
(i)Applications. To the extent that any provision of any Application related to any Letter of Credit is inconsistent with the provisions of this Section 2.06, the provisions of this Section 2.06 shall apply.
(j)Replacement of an Issuing Lender. An Issuing Lender may be replaced at any time by written agreement among the Company, the Administrative Agent, the replaced Issuing Lender and the successor Issuing Lender. The Administrative Agent shall notify the Dollar Tranche Revolving Lenders of any such replacement of the Issuing Lender. At the time any such replacement shall become effective, the Company shall pay all unpaid fees accrued for the account of the replaced Issuing Lender pursuant to Section 2.06(c). From and after the effective date of any such replacement, (i) the successor Issuing Lender shall have all the rights and obligations of the Issuing Lender under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit to be issued thereafter and (ii) references herein to the term 'Issuing Lender' shall be deemed to refer to such successor or to any previous Issuing Lender, or to such successor and all previous Issuing Lenders, as the context shall require. After the replacement of an Issuing Lender hereunder, the replaced Issuing Lender shall remain a party hereto and shall continue to have all the rights and obligations of an Issuing Lender under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit issued by it prior to such replacement, but shall not be required to issue additional Letters of Credit.
(k)Letters of Credit Issued for Subsidiaries. Notwithstanding that a Letter of Credit issued or outstanding hereunder is in support of obligations of, or is for the account of, a Subsidiary (including, to the extent not prohibited by Section 6.04, Unrestricted Subsidiaries) of the Company shall be obligated to reimburse the applicable Issuing Lender for any and all such drawings under such Letter of Credit. The Company hereby acknowledges that the issuance of Letters of Credit for the account of Subsidiaries inures to the benefit of the Company, and that the Company's business derives substantial benefits from the business of such Subsidiaries.


(l)Applicability of ISP and UCP; Limitation of Liability. Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the applicable Issuing Lender and the Company when a Letter of Credit is issued (including any such agreement applicable to an Existing Letter of Credit), (i) the rules of the ISP shall apply to each Letter of Credit. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Issuing Lender shall be responsible to the Company for, and each Issuing Lender's rights and remedies against the Company shall not be impaired by, any action or inaction of such Issuing Lender required or permitted under any law, order, or practice that is required or permitted to be applied to any Letter of Credit or this Agreement, including the Requirement of Law or any order of a jurisdiction where the applicable Issuing Lender or the beneficiary is located, the practice stated in the ISP or UCP, as applicable, or in the decisions, opinions, practice statements, or official commentary of the ICC Banking Commission, the Bankers Association for Finance and Trade - International Financial Services Association (BAFT-IFSA), or the Institute of International Banking Law & Practice, whether or not any Letter of Credit chooses such law or practice. In addition, any Issuing Lender may send a Letter of Credit or conduct any communication to or from the beneficiary via the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication ('SWIFT') message or overnight courier, or any other commercially reasonable means of communicating with a beneficiary.
(m)Issuing Lender Reports to the Administrative Agent. Unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Lender shall, in addition to its notification obligations set forth elsewhere in this Section, provide the Administrative Agent a Letter of Credit Report (i) reasonably prior to the time that such Issuing Lender issues, amends, renews, increases or extends a Letter of Credit, the date of such issuance, amendment, renewal, increase or extension and the stated amount of the applicable Letters of Credit after giving effect to such issuance, amendment, renewal or extension (and whether the amounts thereof shall have changed); (ii) on each Business Day on which such Issuing Lender makes a payment pursuant to a Letter of Credit, the date and amount of such payment; (iii) on any Business Day on which the Company fails to reimburse a payment made pursuant to a Letter of Credit required to be reimbursed to such Issuing Lender on such day, the date of such failure and the amount of such payment; (iv) on any other Business Day, such other information as the Administrative Agent shall reasonably request as to the Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Lender; and (v) for so long as any Letter of Credit issued by an Issuing Lender is outstanding, such Issuing Lender shall deliver to the Administrative Agent (A) on the last Business Day of each calendar month, (B) at all other times a Letter of Credit Report is required to be delivered pursuant to this Agreement, and (C) on each date that (1) such Issuing Lender issues, amends, renews, increases or extends a Letter of Credit or (2) there is any expiration, cancellation and/or disbursement, in each case, with respect to any such Letter of Credit, a Letter of Credit Report appropriately completed with the information for every outstanding Letter of Credit issued by such Issuing Lender.
SECTION 2.07Funding of Borrowings.
(a)Each Lender shall make the amount of each Loan to be made by it hereunder available to the Administrative Agent in Same Day Funds at the Administrative Agent's Office for the applicable currency no later than 1:00 p.m., in the case of any Loan denominated in Dollars, and not later than the Applicable Time specified by the Administrative Agent in the case of any Loan in an Alternative Currency, in each case on the proposed date thereof (or in the case of the Loans to be made on the Closing Date, 11:00 a.m.). The Administrative Agent will make such Loans available to the relevant Borrower by promptly remitting the amounts so received, in like funds, to the Applicable Funding Account.


(b)Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender's share of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date in accordance with paragraph (a) of this Section 2.07 and may, in reliance on such assumption, make available to the relevant Borrower a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing available to the Administrative Agent, then the applicable Lender and such Borrower severally agree to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to such Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of a payment to be made by such Lender, applicable Overnight Rate from time to time in effect, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by the Administrative Agent in connection with the foregoing or (ii) in the case of a payment to be made by such Borrower, the interest rate applicable to Base Rate Term Loans or, in the case of Alternative Currencies in accordance with such market practice, in each case, as applicable. If any Borrower and such Lender shall pay such interest to the Administrative Agent for the same or an overlapping period, the Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to such Borrower the amount of such interest paid by such Borrower for such period. If such Lender pays such amount to the Administrative Agent, then such amount shall constitute such Lender's Loan included in such Borrowing. Any payment by any Borrower shall be without prejudice to any claim such Borrower may have against a Lender that shall have failed to make such payment to the Administrative Agent.
(c)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, any Lender may exchange, continue or rollover all or the portion of its Loans in connection with any refinancing, extension, loan modification or similar transaction permitted by the terms of this Agreement, pursuant to a cashless settlement mechanism approved by the Company, the Administrative Agent and such Lender.
SECTION 2.08Interest Elections. (a) Each Borrowing (other than a Borrowing of Swingline Loans) initially shall be of the Type and, in the case of a Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing or an Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing, shall have an initial Interest Period as specified in the applicable Borrowing Request or as otherwise provided in Section 2.03. Thereafter, the relevant Borrower may elect to convert such Borrowing to a Borrowing of a different Type or to continue such Borrowing and, in the case of a Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing or an Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing, may elect Interest Periods therefor, all as provided in this Section 2.08. A Borrower may elect different options with respect to different portions of the affected Borrowing, in which case each such portion shall be allocated ratably among the Lenders holding the Loans comprising such Borrowing, and the Loans comprising each such portion shall be considered a separate Borrowing.
(b)To make an election pursuant to this Section 2.08, a Borrower, or the Company on its behalf, shall notify the Administrative Agent of such election by telephone by the time that a Borrowing Request would be required under Section 2.03 if such Borrower, or the Company on its behalf, was requesting a Borrowing of the Type resulting from such election to be made on the effective date of such election (it being understood and agreed that such an election may be made prior to the Closing Date). Each such telephonic Interest Election Request shall be irrevocable and shall be confirmed promptly by delivery to the Administrative Agent of an executed written Interest Election Request in accordance with the notice provisions set forth in Section 9.01. Each


telephonic and written Interest Election Request shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:
(i)the name of the applicable Borrower and the Borrowing (including the Class and Type thereof) to which such Interest Election Request applies and, if different options are being elected with respect to different portions thereof, the portions thereof to be allocated to each resulting Borrowing (in which case the information to be specified pursuant to clauses (iii) and (iv) below shall be specified for each resulting Borrowing);
(ii)the effective date of the election made pursuant to such Interest Election Request, which shall be a Business Day;
(iii)with respect to any Borrowing denominated in Dollars, whether the resulting Borrowing is to be a Base Rate Borrowing or a Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing and, in the case of a Borrowing consisting of Revolving Loans, whether such Borrowing is to be a Dollar Tranche Revolving Borrowing or a Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Borrowing; and
(iv)if the resulting Borrowing is to be a Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing or an Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing, the Interest Period to be applicable thereto after giving effect to such election, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term 'Interest Period'.
If any such Interest Election Request requests a Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing or an Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing but does not specify an Interest Period, then the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month's duration.
(c)Promptly following receipt of an Interest Election Request in accordance with this Section 2.08, the Administrative Agent shall advise each Lender of the applicable Class of the details thereof and of such Lender's portion of each resulting Borrowing.
(d)If the relevant Borrower fails to deliver a timely Interest Election Request with respect to a Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing or an Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing prior to the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, then, unless such Borrowing is repaid as provided herein, at the end of such Interest Period such Borrowing shall be continued as a Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing or as an Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing in the original currency, as applicable, for an additional Interest Period of one month. Notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, if an Event of Default under clause (h) or (i) of Article VII has occurred and is continuing with respect to the Company or any Borrower, or if any other Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent, at the request of a Majority in Interest of Lenders of any Class, has notified the Company of the election to give effect to this sentence on account of such other Event of Default, then, in each such case, so long as such Event of Default is continuing, (i) no outstanding Borrowing of such Class may be converted to or continued as a Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing, (ii) unless repaid, each Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing of such Class shall be converted to a Base Rate Borrowing at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto and (iii) unless repaid, any outstanding Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing of such Class shall be continued as Eurocurrency Rate Loans in their original currency with an Interest Period of one month. Except as otherwise provided in Section 2.15 and Section 2.19(b), no Borrowing or Loan may be converted into or continued as a Borrowing denominated


in a different currency, but instead must be prepaid in the original currency of such Borrowing and reborrowed in the other currency.
(e)After giving effect to all Interest Election Requests, the number of Interest Periods in effect shall not at any time exceed the maximum number of Interest Periods permitted pursuant to Section 2.02(c).
SECTION 2.09Termination and Reduction of Commitments. (a) Unless previously terminated, (i) the Initial Term Loan Commitments shall automatically terminate on the Closing Date (upon funding of the Initial Term Loans), (ii) the Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Commitments and Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments shall automatically terminate on the Revolving Termination Date and (iii) the Aggregate Revolving Commitments shall automatically be reduced on the first anniversary of the Closing Date to an amount equal to the lesser of (x) $800,000,000 and (y) the Aggregate Revolving Commitments at such time immediately prior to giving effect to this clause (iii), it being understood and agreed that such reduction of the Aggregate Revolving Commitments pursuant to this clause (iii) shall be applied ratably between the Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Commitments and the Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments based on the respective Revolving Commitments in each Tranche on the first anniversary of the Closing Date.
(b)The Company may at any time terminate, or from time to time permanently reduce, the Commitments of any Class; provided that each partial reduction of the Commitments of any Class shall be in an amount that is an integral multiple of $1,000,000 and not less than $5,000,000; provided further, that (i) no such termination or reduction of Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Commitments shall be permitted if, after giving effect thereto and to any prepayments of the Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Loans made on the effective date thereof, the Revolving Extensions of Credit of any Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Lender would exceed its Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Commitments, (ii) no such termination or reduction of Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments shall be permitted if, after giving effect thereto and to any prepayments of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Loans and Swingline Loans made on the effective date thereof, the Revolving Extensions of Credit of any Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender would exceed its Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments, (iii) if after giving effect to any reduction of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments, the L/C Commitment exceeds the amount of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments, such commitment shall be automatically reduced by such excess, (iv) if after giving effect to any reduction of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments, the Swingline Commitment exceeds the amount of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments, such commitment shall be automatically reduced by such excess, (v) if after giving effect to any reduction of the Aggregate Revolving Commitments, the Alternative Currency Sublimit exceeds the amount of the Aggregate Revolving Commitments, such sublimit shall be automatically reduced by such excess and (vi) no such termination or reduction of any Revolving Commitments shall be permitted if, after giving effect thereto and to any prepayments of the Revolving Loans and Swingline Loans made on the effective date thereof, the sum of the total Revolving Credit Exposures denominated in an Alternative Currency exceeds the Alternative Currency Sublimit.
(c)The Company shall notify the Administrative Agent of any election to terminate or reduce the Commitments under paragraph (b) of this Section 2.09 by 11:00 a.m. at least five Business Days prior to the effective date of such termination or reduction, specifying the effective date thereof. Promptly following receipt of any such notice, the Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of the applicable Class of the contents thereof. Each notice delivered by the Company


pursuant to this Section 2.09 shall be irrevocable. Any termination or reduction of the Commitments of any Class shall be permanent. A notice of termination of the Commitments delivered by the Company may state that such notice is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities being funded, the occurrence of a Specified Transaction or other contingent event, in which case such notice may be revoked by the Company (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified effective date) if such condition is not satisfied.
SECTION 2.10Repayment of Loans; Evidence of Debt. (a) Each Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay (i) to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender the then unpaid principal amount of each Initial Term Loan of such Lender made to such Borrower as provided in Section 2.11, (ii) to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender the then unpaid principal amount of each Incremental Term Loan of such Lender on the Maturity Date applicable to such Incremental Term Loans made to such Borrower and (iii) to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender the then unpaid principal amount of each Revolving Loan of such Lender made to such Borrower on the Revolving Termination Date.
(b)The records maintained by the Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations of each Borrower in respect of Loans, interest and fees due or accrued hereunder; provided that the failure of the Administrative Agent or any Lender to maintain such records or any error therein shall not in any manner affect the obligation of any Borrower to pay any amounts due hereunder in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
(c)Any Lender may request that Loans of any Class made by it to any Borrower be evidenced by a promissory note. In such event, the relevant Borrower shall prepare, execute and deliver to such Lender a promissory note payable to such Lender and its registered assigns and in a form approved by the Administrative Agent. Thereafter, the Loans evidenced by such promissory note and interest thereon shall at all times (including after assignment pursuant to Section 9.04) be represented by one or more promissory notes in such form payable to the payee named therein and its registered assigns.
SECTION 2.11Amortization of Term Loans. (a) The Company shall repay Initial Term Loan Borrowings on the last Business Day of each April, July, October and January, commencing with the last Business Day of July, 2021 and ending with the last such Business Day to occur prior to the Term Maturity Date, in an aggregate principal amount for each such date equal to 1.25% of the aggregate principal amount of the Initial Term Loan Borrowings outstanding on the Fourth Amendment Effective Date after giving effect to the additional advance of the Initial Term Loan pursuant to the Fourth Amendment (as such amount shall be adjusted after the Fourth Amendment Effective Date pursuant to paragraph (d) of this Section 2.11).
(b)The applicable Borrower shall repay Incremental Term Loans of any Series in such amounts and on such date or dates as shall be specified therefor in the Incremental Facility Amendment establishing the Incremental Term Commitments of such Series (as such amount shall be adjusted pursuant to paragraph (d) of this Section 2.11 or pursuant to such Incremental Facility Amendment).
(c)To the extent not previously paid, (i) all Initial Term Loans shall be due and payable on the Term Maturity Date and (ii) all Incremental Term Loans of any Series shall be due and payable on the applicable Incremental Term Maturity Date.


(d)Any optional prepayment of Term Loans of any Class pursuant to Section 2.12(a) shall be applied to reduce the subsequent scheduled repayments of the Term Loans of such Class to be made pursuant to this Section 2.11 as directed by the Company (and absent such direction, in direct order of maturity thereof) and may be applied to the Initial Term Loans or any Incremental Term Loans, in any case, as directed by the Company (and absent such direction, in direct order of maturity thereof). All mandatory prepayments of Term Loans pursuant to Section 2.12(b) shall be applied to reduce the subsequent scheduled repayments of the Term Loans to be made pursuant to this Section 2.11 to the scheduled installments in direct order of maturity.
SECTION 2.12Prepayment of Loans. (a) The Company shall have the right at any time and from time to time to prepay any Borrowing, in whole or in part, subject to the requirements of this Section 2.12.
(b)In the event and on each occasion that any Prepayment Proceeds are received by or on behalf of the Company or any Subsidiary in respect of any Prepayment Event, the Company shall, not later than the fifth Business Day following the day such Prepayment Proceeds are received, prepay Term Loan Borrowings in an aggregate amount equal to 100% of the amount of such Prepayment Proceeds; provided that the Company may use a portion of such Prepayment Proceeds to prepay or repurchase Permitted First Priority Refinancing Indebtedness or Incremental Equivalent Debt secured on a pari passu basis with the Obligations to the extent any applicable credit agreement, indenture or other agreement governing such Permitted First Priority Refinancing Indebtedness or Incremental Equivalent Debt so requires, in each case in an amount not to exceed the product of (x) the amount of such Prepayment Proceeds and (y) a fraction, the numerator of which is the outstanding principal amount of such Permitted First Priority Refinancing Indebtedness or Incremental Equivalent Debt, as applicable, and the denominator of which is the sum of the outstanding principal amount of such Permitted First Priority Refinancing Indebtedness or Incremental Equivalent Debt, as applicable, and the outstanding principal amount of Term Loans; provided further that, in the case of any event described in clause (a) or (b) of the definition of the term 'Prepayment Event', if the Company shall, prior to the date of the required prepayment, deliver to the Administrative Agent a certificate of a Financial Officer of the Company to the effect that the Company or the applicable Subsidiary intends to cause the Prepayment Proceeds from such event (or a portion thereof specified in such certificate) to be applied within 365 days after receipt of such Prepayment Proceeds to make an Investment in the business of the Company or the Subsidiaries permitted hereunder, then no prepayment shall be required pursuant to this paragraph in respect of the Prepayment Proceeds in respect of such event (or the portion of such Prepayment Proceeds specified in such certificate, if applicable) except to the extent of any such Prepayment Proceeds that have not been so applied by the end of such 365-day period (or within a period of 180 days thereafter if by the end of such initial 365-day period the Company or one or more Subsidiaries shall have entered into an agreement with a third party to consummate an Investment with such Prepayment Proceeds), at which time a prepayment shall be required in an amount equal to such Prepayment Proceeds that have not been so applied.
(c)[Reserved].
(d)Prior to any optional or mandatory prepayment of Borrowings under this Section 2.12, the Company shall, subject to the next sentence, specify the Borrowing or Borrowings to be prepaid in the notice of such prepayment delivered pursuant to paragraph (e) of this Section 2.12.In the event of any mandatory prepayment of Term Loans made at a time when Term Loans of more than one Class are outstanding, the Company shall select Term Loans to be prepaid so that


the aggregate amount of such prepayment is allocated among the Term Loans pro rata based on the aggregate principal amounts of outstanding Borrowings of each such Class; provided that the amounts so allocable to Incremental Term Loans of any Series may be applied to other Term Loan Borrowings as provided in the applicable Incremental Facility Amendment.
(e)The relevant Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent by telephone (confirmed by hand delivery or facsimile of a Notice of Loan Prepayment) of any optional prepayment and, to the extent practicable, any mandatory prepayment hereunder not later than 11:00 a.m., (i) three Business Days before the date of prepayment in the case of prepayment of a Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing denominated in Dollars, (ii) four Business Days before the date of prepayment in the case of prepayment of prepayment of a Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency (or five, in the case of prepayment of a Borrowing denominated in a Special Notice Currency) or (iii) on the Business Day of the date of prepayment in the in the case of prepayment of a Base Rate Borrowing. Each such notice shall be irrevocable and shall specify the prepayment date, the principal amount of each Borrowing or portion thereof to be prepaid, the applicable currency of such Borrowing and, in the case of a mandatory prepayment, a reasonably detailed calculation of the amount of such prepayment; provided that a notice of optional prepayment of Loans pursuant to paragraph (a) of this Section 2.12 may state that such notice is conditioned upon the occurrence of one or more events specified therein, in which case such notice of prepayment may be revoked by such Borrower (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified date of prepayment) if such condition is not satisfied. Promptly following receipt of any such notice, the Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of the applicable Class of the contents thereof. Each partial prepayment of any Borrowing shall be in an amount that would be permitted in the case of an advance of a Borrowing of the same Type as provided in Section 2.02, except (i) as necessary to apply fully the required amount of a mandatory prepayment and (ii) partial prepayments of Swingline Loans shall be in an aggregate principal amount of $100,000 or a whole multiple thereof. Each prepayment of a Borrowing shall be applied ratably to the Loans included in the prepaid Borrowing. Prepayments shall be accompanied by accrued interest to the extent required by Section 2.14.
(f)If the Administrative Agent notifies the Company at any time that the sum of the total Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Credit Exposures at such time exceeds an amount equal to the aggregate Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Commitments then in effect, then, within two Business Days after receipt of such notice, the Borrowers shall prepay Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Loans amount at least equal to such excess. If the Administrative Agent notifies the Company at any time that the sum of the total Dollar Tranche Revolving Credit Exposures at such time exceeds an amount equal to the aggregate Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments then in effect, then, within two Business Days after receipt of such notice, the Borrowers shall prepay Dollar Tranche Revolving Loans and/or the Company shall Cash Collateralize the L/C Obligations in an aggregate in an aggregate amount at least equal to such excess; provided, however, that, the Company shall not be required to Cash Collateralize the L/C Obligations pursuant to this Section 2.12(f) unless after the prepayment in full of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Loans the total Dollar Tranche Revolving Credit Exposures at such time exceed the Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments then in effect. The Administrative Agent may, at any time and from time to time after the initial deposit of such Cash Collateral, request that additional Cash Collateral be provided in order to protect against the results of exchange rate fluctuations.
(g)If the Administrative Agent notifies the Company at any time that the Revolving Outstanding Amount of all Loans denominated in Alternative Currencies at such time exceeds an


amount equal to 105% of the Alternative Currency Sublimit then in effect, then, within two Business Days after receipt of such notice, the Borrowers shall prepay Loans in an aggregate amount sufficient to reduce such Revolving Outstanding Amount as of such date of payment to an amount not to exceed 100% of the Alternative Currency Sublimit then in effect.
(h)Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section 2.12, to the extent that any of or all the Prepayment Proceeds of any Disposition by the Company or any non-U.S. Subsidiary or of any casualty event from the Company or any non-U.S. Subsidiary either (A) is prohibited, restricted or delayed by applicable local law from being repatriated to the United States or (B) would, in the good faith judgment of the Company, result in a material adverse tax consequence to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries if applied to repay the Term Loans, in each case, the portion of such Prepayment Proceeds so affected will not be required to be applied to repay Term Loans at the times provided in Section 2.12(b). Instead, such amounts may be retained by the Company or the applicable Subsidiary so long, but only so long, as the applicable local law will not permit repatriation to the United States (the Company hereby agreeing to promptly take, or to cause the applicable Subsidiary to promptly take, all actions reasonably required by the applicable local law to permit such repatriation as long as such repatriation does not create a material adverse tax consequence) or, in the good faith judgment of the Company, a material adverse tax consequence to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries would result if such Prepayment Proceeds are applied to repay the Term Loans, and once such repatriation of any of such affected Prepayment Proceeds is permitted under the applicable local law and, in the good faith judgment of the Company, no material adverse tax consequence to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries would result if such Prepayment Proceeds are applied to repay the Term Loans, such repatriation will be promptly effected and such Prepayment Proceeds will be promptly (and in any event not later than five Business Days) applied (net of additional taxes payable or reserved against as a result thereof) to the repayment of the Term Loans pursuant to this Section 2.12 to the extent provided herein.
SECTION 2.13Fees.
(a)The Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for its own account, fees payable in the amounts and at the times separately agreed upon between the Company and the Administrative Agent.
(b)The Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent in Dollars for the account of each Revolving Lender a commitment fee for the period from and including the Closing Date to the last day of the Revolving Commitment Period, computed at the Commitment Fee Rate on the average daily amount of the Available Revolving Commitment of such Lender during the period for which payment is made, payable quarterly in arrears on each Fee Payment Date, commencing on the first such date to occur after the Closing Date. All commitment fees shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).
(c)All fees payable hereunder shall be paid in Dollars on the dates due, in immediately available funds, to the Administrative Agent. Fees paid shall not be refundable under any circumstances.
SECTION 2.14Interest. (a) The Loans (other than Swingline Loans) comprising each Base Rate Borrowing shall bear interest at the Base Rate plus the Applicable Rate.


(b)The Loans comprising each Eurocurrency Rate Borrowing shall bear interest at the Eurocurrency Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing plus the Applicable Rate.
(c)The Loans comprising each Alternative Currency Daily Rate Borrowing shall bear interest at the Alternative Currency Daily Rate plus the Applicable Rate.
(d)The Loans comprising each Alternative Currency Term Rate Borrowing shall bear interest at the Alternative Currency Term Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing plus the Applicable Rate.
(e)Swingline Loans shall bear interest at the Base Rate plus the Applicable Rate for Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans or at the Alternative Swingline Rate.
(f)Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any principal of or interest on any Loan or Reimbursement Obligation or any fee or other amount payable by any Borrower hereunder is not paid when due, whether at stated maturity, upon acceleration or otherwise, such overdue amount shall bear interest, after as well as before judgment, at a rate per annum equal to (i) in the case of overdue principal of any Loan, 2.00% per annum plus the rate otherwise applicable to such Loan as provided in the preceding paragraphs of this Section 2.14, (ii) in the case of Reimbursement Obligations, 2.00% per annum plus the rate applicable to Base Rate Loans under the Dollar Tranche Revolving Facility or (iii) in the case of interest payable on any Loan or Reimbursement Obligation or any fee or other amount payable hereunder, 2.00% per annum plus the rate applicable to Base Rate Loans under the relevant Facility (or, in the case of any such other amounts that do not relate to a particular Facility, 2.00% per annum plus the rate applicable to Base Rate Loans under the Revolving Facilities).
(g)Accrued interest on each Loan shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date for such Loan; provided that (i) interest accrued pursuant to paragraph (f) of this Section 2.14 shall be payable on demand, (ii) in the event of any repayment or prepayment of any Loan (other than any Revolving Loan that is a Base Rate Loan and any Swingline Loan), accrued interest on the principal amount repaid or prepaid shall be payable on the date of such repayment or prepayment and (iii) in the event of any conversion of a Eurocurrency Rate Loan or an Alternative Currency Term Rate Loan prior to the end of the current Interest Period therefor, accrued interest on such Loan shall be payable on the effective date of such conversion.
(h)All computations of interest for Base Rate Loans (including Base Rate Loans determined by reference to the Eurocurrency Rate) and for Alternative Currency Loans shall be made on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, and actual days elapsed or, in the case of interest in respect of Loans denominated in Alternative Currencies as to which market practice differs from the foregoing, in accordance with such market practice. All other computations of fees and interest shall be made on the basis of a 360-day year and actual days elapsed (which results in more fees or interest, as applicable, being paid than if computed on the basis of a 365-day year). Interest shall accrue on each Loan for the day on which the Loan is made, and shall not accrue on a Loan, or any portion thereof, for the day on which the Loan or such portion is paid, provided that any Loan that is repaid on the same day on which it is made shall, subject to Section 2.19(a), bear interest for one day. Each determination by the Administrative Agent of an interest rate or fee hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.


(i)To the extent any calculation of interest or any fee required to be paid under this Agreement shall be based on (or result in) a calculation that is less than zero, such calculation shall be deemed zero for purposes of this Agreement.
(j)If, as a result of any restatement of or other adjustment to the financial statements of the Company or for any other reason, the Company or the Lenders determine that (i) the Total Net Leverage Ratio as calculated by the Company as of any applicable date was inaccurate and (ii) a proper calculation of the Total Net Leverage Ratio would have resulted in higher pricing for such period, each Borrower shall immediately and retroactively be obligated to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Lenders or the applicable Issuing Lenders, as the case may be, promptly on demand by the Administrative Agent (or, after the occurrence of an actual or deemed entry of an order for relief with respect to any Borrower under the Bankruptcy Code, automatically and without further action by the Administrative Agent, any Lender or any Issuing Lender), an amount equal to the excess of the amount of interest and fees that should have been paid for such period over the amount of interest and fees actually paid for such period. This paragraph shall not limit the rights of the Administrative Agent, any Lender or any Issuing Lender, as the case may be, hereunder or under the other Loan Documents. The Company's obligations under this paragraph shall survive the termination of the Aggregate Commitments and the repayment of all other Obligations hereunder.
(k)With respect to any Alternative Currency Daily Rate, the Administrative Agent will have the right to make Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, any amendments implementing such Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement or any other Loan Document; provided that, with respect to any such amendment so effected, the Administrative Agent shall post each such amendment implementing such Conforming Changes to the Company and the Lenders reasonably promptly after such amendment becomes effective.
SECTION 2.15Inability to Determine Rates.
(a)If in connection with any request for a Eurocurrency Rate Loan or an Alternative Currency Loan or a conversion of Base Rate Loans to Eurocurrency Rate Loans or continuation of any such Loans, as applicable, (i) the Administrative Agent determines that (A) no Benchmark Replacement or Successor Rate, as applicable, for the Relevant Rate for the applicable Agreed Currency hasbeen determined in accordance with Section 2.15(b) or Section 2.15(c), as applicable, and the circumstances under clause (i) of Section 2.15(b) or the Scheduled Unavailability Date has occurred with respect to such Relevant Rate (as applicable) or (B) adequate and reasonable means do not otherwise exist for determining the Relevant Rate for the applicable Agreed Currency for any determination date(s) or requested Interest Period, as applicable, with respect to a proposed Eurocurrency Rate Loan or an Alternative Currency Loan or in connection with an existing or proposed Base Rate Loan, or (ii) the Administrative Agent or the Majority in Interest of the Lenders of any Class determine in good faith that for any reason the Relevant Rate with respect to a proposed Loan denominated in an Agreed Currency for any requested Interest Period or determination date(s) does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of funding such Loan, the Administrative Agent will promptly so notify the Company and each Lender. Thereafter, (x) the obligation of the Lenders to make or maintain Loans in the affected currency or currencies or to convert Base Rate Loans to Eurocurrency Rate Loans shall be suspended (to the extent of the affected Loans or Interest Periods or determination


dates, as applicable), and (y) in the event of a determination described in the preceding sentence with respect to the Eurocurrency Rate component of the Base Rate, the utilization of the Eurocurrency Rate component in determining the Base Rate shall be suspended, in each case until the Administrative Agent (or, in the case of a determination by the Required Lenders described in clause (ii) of this Section 2.15(a), until the Administrative Agent upon instruction of the Required Lenders) revokes such notice. Upon receipt of such notice, (1) the Company may revoke any pending request for a Borrowing of, or conversion to Eurocurrency Rate Loans, or Borrowing of, or a continuation of Alternative Currency Loans to the extent of the affected Alternative Currency Loans or Interest Period or determination date(s), as applicable or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for a Borrowing of Base Rate Loans in the Dollar Equivalent of the amount specified therein and (2) any outstanding affected Alternative Currency Loans, at the Company's election, shall either (I) be converted into a Borrowing of Base Rate Loans in the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of such outstanding Alternative Currency Loan immediately, in the case of an Alternative Currency Daily Rate Loan or at the end of the applicable Interest Period, in the case of an Alternative Currency Term Rate Loan, or (II) be prepaid in full immediately, in the case of an Alternative Currency Daily Rate Loan or at the end of the applicable Interest Period, in the case of an Alternative Currency Term Rate Loan; provided that if no election is made by the Company (x) in the case of an Alternative Currency Daily Rate Loan, by the date that is three (3) Business Days after receipt by the Company of such notice or (y) in the case of an Alternative Currency Term Rate Loan, by the last day of the current Interest Period for the applicable Alternative Currency Term Rate Loan, the Company shall be deemed to have elected clause (I) above.
(b)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Loan Documents, (x) for purposes of this Section 2.15(b), the term 'Agreed Currency' shall not include Dollars and (y) if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error), or the Company or Majority in Interest of the Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Lenders notify the Administrative Agent (with, in the case of the Majority in Interest of the Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Lenders, a copy to the Company) that the Company or such Lenders (as applicable) have determined, that:
(i)adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Relevant Rate for an Agreed Currency because none of the tenors of such Relevant Rate (including any forward-looking term rate thereof) is available or published on a current basis and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary; or
(ii)the Applicable Authority has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which all tenors of the Relevant Rate for an Agreed Currency (including any forward-looking term rate thereof) shall or will no longer be representative or made available, or used for determining the interest rate of loans denominated in such Agreed Currency, or shall or will otherwise cease, provided that, in each case, at the time of such statement, there is no successor administrator that is satisfactory to the Administrative Agent that will continue to provide such representative tenor(s) of the Relevant Rate for such Agreed Currency (the latest date on which all tenors of the Relevant Rate for such Agreed Currency (including any forward-looking term rate thereof) are no longer representative or available permanently or indefinitely, the 'Scheduled Unavailability Date'); or


(iii)syndicated loans currently being executed and agented in the U.S., are being executed or amended (as applicable) to incorporate or adopt a new benchmark interest rate to replace the Relevant Rate for an Agreed Currency;
or if the events or circumstances of the type described in Section 2.15(b)(i), (ii) or (iii) have occurred with respect to the Successor Rate then in effect, then, the Administrative Agent and the Company may amend this Agreement solely for the purpose of replacing the Relevant Rate for an Agreed Currency or any then current Successor Rate for an Agreed Currency in accordance with this Section 2.15 with an alternative benchmark rate giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar credit facilities syndicated and agented in the U.S. and denominated in such Agreed Currency for such alternative benchmarks, and, in each case, including any mathematical or other adjustments to such benchmark giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar credit facilities syndicated and agented in the U.S. and denominated in such Agreed Currency for such benchmarks, which adjustment or method for calculating such adjustment shall be published on an information service as selected by the Administrative Agent from time to time in its reasonable discretion and may be periodically updated (and any such proposed rate, including for the avoidance of doubt, any adjustment thereto, a 'Successor Rate'), and any such amendment shall become effective at 5:00 p.m. on the fifth (5th) Business Day after the Administrative Agent shall have posted such proposed amendment to all Lenders and the Company unless, prior to such time, Lenders comprising the Majority in Interest of the Multicurrency Tranche Revolving Lenders have delivered to the Administrative Agent written notice that such Lenders object to such amendment. The Administrative Agent will promptly (in one or more notices) notify the Company and each Lender of the implementation of any Successor Rate. Any Successor Rate shall be applied in a manner consistent with market practice; provided that to the extent such market practice is not administratively feasible for the Administrative Agent, such Successor Rate shall be applied in a manner as otherwise reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent. Notwithstanding anything else herein to the contrary, if at any time any Successor Rate as so determined would otherwise be less than zero, the Successor Rate will be deemed to be zero for purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. In connection with the implementation of a Successor Rate, the Administrative Agent will have the right to make Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, any amendments implementing such Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement; provided that, with respect to any such amendment so effected, the Administrative Agent shall post each such amendment implementing such Conforming Changes to the Company and the Lenders reasonably promptly after such amendment becomes effective.
(c)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Loan Document:
(i)On March 5, 2021 the Financial Conduct Authority ('FCA'), the regulatory supervisor of LIBOR's administrator ('IBA'), announced in a public statement the future cessation or loss of representativeness of overnight/Spot Next, 1-week, 1-month, 2-month, 3-month, 6-month and 12- month Dollar LIBOR tenor settings. On the earliest of (A) the date that all Available Tenors of Dollar LIBOR have permanently or indefinitely ceased to be provided by IBA or have been announced by the FCA pursuant to public statement or publication of information to be no longer representative, (B) June 30, 2023 and (C) the Early Opt-in Effective Date in respect of a


SOFR Early Opt-in, if the then-current Benchmark is LIBOR, the Benchmark Replacement will replace such Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Loan Document in respect of any setting of such Benchmark on such day and all subsequent settings without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement or any other Loan Document. If the Benchmark Replacement is Daily Simple SOFR, all interest payments will be payable on amonthly basis.
(ii)(x) Upon (A) the occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event or (B) a determination by the Administrative Agent that neither of the alternatives under clause (1) of the definition of Benchmark Replacement are available, the Benchmark Replacement will replace the then-current Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Loan Document in respect of any Benchmark setting at or after 5:00 p.m. on the fifth (5th) Business Day after the date notice of such Benchmark Replacement is provided to the Lenders without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Loan Document so long as the Administrative Agent has not received, by such time, written notice of objection to such Benchmark Replacement from Lenders comprising the Required Lenders (and any such objection shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error); provided that solely in the event that the then-current Benchmark at the time of such Benchmark Transition Event is not a SOFR-based rate, the Benchmark Replacement therefor shall be determined in accordance with clause (1) of the definition of Benchmark Replacement unless the Administrative Agent determines that neither of such alternative rates is available.
(y) On the Early Opt-in Effective Date in respect of an Other Rate Early Opt-in, the Benchmark Replacement will replace LIBOR for all purposes hereunder and under any Loan Document in respect of any setting of such Benchmark on such day and all subsequent settings without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement or any other Loan Document.
(iii)At any time that the administrator of the then-current Benchmark has permanently or indefinitely ceased to provide such Benchmark or such Benchmark has been announced by the regulatory supervisor for the administrator of such Benchmark pursuant to public statement or publication of information to be no longer representative of the underlying market and economic reality that such Benchmark is intended to measure and that representativeness will not be restored, the applicable Borrower may revoke any request for a borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Loans to be made, converted or continued that would bear interest by reference to such Benchmark until the Company's receipt of notice from the Administrative Agent that a Benchmark Replacement has replaced such Benchmark, and, failing that, the Company will be deemed to have converted any such request into a request for a borrowing of or conversion to Base Rate Loans. During the period referenced in the foregoing sentence, the component of Base Rate based upon the Benchmark will not be used in any determination of the Base Rate.
(iv)In connection with the implementation and administration of a Benchmark Replacement, the Administrative Agent will have the right to make Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, any amendments


implementing such Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement.
(v)The Administrative Agent will promptly notify the Company and the Lenders of (A) the implementation of any Benchmark Replacement and (B) the effectiveness of any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes. Any determination, decision or election that may be made by the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 2.15(c), including any determination with respect to a tenor, rate or adjustment or of the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event, circumstance or date and any decision to take or refrain from taking any action, will be conclusive and binding absent manifest error and may be made in its sole discretion and without consent from any other party hereto, except, in each case, as expressly required pursuant to this Section 2.15(c).
(vi)At any time (including in connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement), (A) if the then-current Benchmark is a term rate (including Term SOFR or LIBOR), then the Administrative Agent may remove any tenor of such Benchmark that is unavailable or non-representative for Benchmark (including Benchmark Replacement) settings and (B) the Administrative Agent may reinstate any such previously removed tenor for Benchmark (including Benchmark Replacement) settings.
SECTION 2.16Increased Costs; Reserves on Eurocurrency Rate Loans and Alternative Currency Loans. (a) If any Change in Law shall:
(i)impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended or participated in by, any Lender or other Credit Party (except any such reserve requirement contemplated by Section 2.16(f));
(ii)impose on any Lender or other Credit Party or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or Eurocurrency Rate Loans or Alternative Currency Loans made by such Lender or such other Credit Party; or
(iii)subject any Recipient to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of the term 'Excluded Taxes', (C) Connection Income Taxes; and (D) any Taxes attributable to a U.K. Tax Deduction required to be made by a Loan Party) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto;
and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender or such other Credit Party or other Recipient of making, converting to, continuing or maintaining any Loan or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan or issuing or participating in Letters of Credit, or to increase the cost to such Lender or such other Credit Party, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender or such other Credit Party (whether of principal, interest or any other amount) then, from time to time upon request of such Lender or such other Credit Party, the applicable Borrower will pay to such Lender or such other Credit


Party such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such other Credit Party for such additional costs or expenses incurred or reduction suffered.
(b)If any Lender determines that any Change in Law affecting such Lender or any lending office of such Lender or such Lender's holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements has had or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender's capital or on the capital of such Lender's holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement or its obligations under any Letter of Credit, the Commitments of such Lender or the Loans made by such Lender to a level below that which such Lender or such Lender's holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender's policies and the policies of such Lender's holding company with respect to capital adequacy or liquidity), then, from time to time upon request of such Lender, the applicable Borrower will pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such Lender's holding company for any such reduction suffered.
(c)A certificate of a Lender or any other Credit Party setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or such other Credit Party or such Lender's or such other Credit Party's holding company, as the case may be, as specified in paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section 2.16 delivered to any Borrower shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Company shall pay such Lender or such other Credit Party, as the case may be, the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 30 Business Days after receipt thereof.
(d)Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or any other Credit Party to demand compensation pursuant to this Section 2.16 shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender's or such other Credit Party's right to demand such compensation; provided that the Company shall not be required to compensate a Lender or such other Credit Party pursuant to this Section 2.16 for any increased costs or expenses incurred or reductions suffered more than 180 days prior to the date that such Lender or such other Credit Party notifies the Company of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or expenses or reductions and of such Lender's or such other Credit Party's intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or expenses or reductions is retroactive, then the 180-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.
(e)[Intentionally Omitted]
(f)Additional Reserve Requirements. The Company shall pay (or cause the applicable Designated Borrower to pay) to each Lender, (i) as long as such Lender shall be required to maintain reserves with respect to liabilities or assets consisting of or including Eurocurrency funds or deposits (currently known as 'Eurocurrency liabilities'), additional interest on the unpaid principal amount of each Eurocurrency Rate Loan equal to the actual costs of such reserves allocated to such Loan by such Lender (as determined by such Lender in good faith, which determination shall be conclusive), and (ii) as long as such Lender shall be required to comply with any other reserve ratio requirement or analogous requirement of any other central banking or financial regulatory authority imposed in respect of the maintenance of the Commitments or the funding of the Eurocurrency Rate Loans or the Alternative Currency Loans, such additional costs (expressed as a percentage per annum and rounded upwards, if necessary, to the nearest five decimal places) equal to the actual costs allocated to such Commitment or Loan by such Lender (as determined by such Lender in good faith, which determination shall be conclusive), which in each case shall be due and payable on each date on which interest is


payable on such Loan, provided the Company shall have received at least 10 days' prior notice (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) of such additional interest or costs from such Lender. If a Lender fails to give notice 10 days prior to the relevant Interest Payment Date, such additional interest or costs shall be due and payable 10 days from receipt of such notice.
SECTION 2.17Break Funding Payments. In the event of (a) the payment of any principal of any Eurocurrency Rate Loan or Alternative Currency Term Rate Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of an Event of Default), (b) the conversion of any Eurocurrency Rate Loan or Alternative Currency Term Rate Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, (c) the failure to borrow, convert or continue any Eurocurrency Rate Loan or Alternative Currency Loan on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto, (d) the failure to prepay any Eurocurrency Rate Loan or Alternative Currency Loan on a date specified therefor in any notice of prepayment given by the Company or any other Borrower (whether or not such notice may be revoked in accordance with the terms hereof), (e) the assignment of any Eurocurrency Rate Loan or Alternative Currency Term Rate Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto as a result of a request by the Company pursuant to Section 2.20 or 9.02(c) or (f) any failure by any Borrower to make payment of any Loan or drawing under any Letter of Credit (or interest due thereon) denominated in an Alternative Currency on its scheduled due date or any payment thereof in a different currency then, in any such event, the Borrowers shall compensate each Lender for the loss, cost and expense attributable to such event including foreign exchange losses. Such loss, cost or expense to any Lender shall be deemed to include an amount determined by such Lender to be the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest that would have accrued on the principal amount of such Loan had such event not occurred, at the Eurocurrency Rate, Alternative Currency Daily Rate or Alternative Currency Term Rate, as applicable, that would have been applicable to such Loan (but not including the Applicable Rate applicable thereto), for the period from the date of such event to the last day of the then current Interest Period therefor (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, for the period that would have been the Interest Period for such Loan), over (ii) the amount of interest that would accrue on such principal amount for such period at the interest rate such Lender would bid if it were to bid, at the commencement of such period, for deposits in the applicable currency of a comparable amount and period from other banks in the London interbank market, in the case of Eurocurrency Rate Loans, or the applicable offshore interbank market for such currency, in the case of Alternative Currency Loans. A certificate of any Lender delivered to the applicable Borrower and setting forth any amount or amounts that such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section 2.17 shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The applicable Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 30 Business Days after receipt thereof.
SECTION 2.17Taxes.
(a)Payments Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of any Loan Party under any Loan Document shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by applicable law.
If any applicable law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable withholding agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a Loan Party or withholding agent, then the applicable Loan Party or withholding agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax (but subject to subsection (b) below), then the sum payable by the applicable Loan Party shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding


has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.18) the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.
(b)U.K. Tax Deduction. A payment by a Loan Party incorporated in the United Kingdom shall not be increased under paragraph (a) above by reason of a U.K. Tax Deduction if, on the date on which the payment falls due:
(i)the payment could have been made to the relevant Lender without a U.K. Tax Deduction if the Lender had been a U.K. Qualifying Lender, but on that date that Lender is not or has ceased to be a U.K. Qualifying Lender other than as a result of any change after the date it became a Lender under this Agreement in (or in the interpretation, administration, or application of) any law or U.K. Treaty or any published practice or published concession of any relevant taxing authority; or
(ii)the relevant Lender is a U.K. Qualifying Lender solely by virtue of paragraph (b) of the definition of 'U.K. Qualifying Lender' and:
(a)an officer of HM Revenue & Customs has given (and not revoked) a direction (a 'Direction') under section 931 of the U.K. ITA which relates to the payment and that Lender has received from the Loan Party making the payment or from the Company a certified copy of that Direction; and
(b)the payment could have been made to the Lender without any U.K. Tax Deduction if that Direction had not been made; or
(iii)the relevant Lender is a U.K. Qualifying Lender solely by virtue of paragraph (b) of the definition of 'U.K. Qualifying Lender' and:
(a)the relevant Lender has not given a U.K. Tax Confirmation to the Company; and
(b)the payment could have been made to the Lender without any U.K. Tax Deduction if the Lender had given a U.K. Tax Confirmation to the relevant Loan Party, on the basis that the U.K. Tax Confirmation would have enabled such Loan Party to have formed a reasonable belief that the payment was an 'excepted payment' for the purpose of section 930 of the U.K. ITA; or
(iv)the relevant Lender is a U.K. Treaty Lender and the Loan Party making the payment is able to demonstrate that the payment could have been made to the Lender without the U.K. Tax Deduction had that Lender complied with its obligations under paragraphs 2.18(g)(iii)(A), 2.18(g)(iii)(B) or 2.18(g)(iii)(C) (as applicable) below.
(c)Payment of Other Taxes by the Loan Parties. The Loan Parties shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes.
(d)Evidence of Payment. As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by any Loan Party to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 2.18, such Loan Party shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such


Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
(e)Indemnification by the Loan Parties. The Company and each other Loan Party that is a Domestic Subsidiary shall jointly and severally, and all of the other Designated Borrowers shall severally, indemnify each Recipient, within 30 days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 2.18) payable or paid by such Recipient or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Recipient and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority; provided that the foregoing indemnity shall not apply to any Indemnified Taxes which would have been compensated for by an increased payment under Section 2.18(a) but was not so compensated solely because one or more of the exclusions in Section 2.18(b) applied. After a Recipient learns of the imposition of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes, such Recipient will act in good faith to promptly notify the Loan Parties of its obligations hereunder. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Company by a Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(f)Indemnification by the Lenders. Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within 30 days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that any Loan Party has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Loan Parties to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender's failure to comply with the provisions of Section 9.04(c) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register and (iii) any Excluded Taxes (or any Indemnified Tax which would have given rise to an increased payment under Section 2.18(a) but did not give rise to such an increased payment solely because one or more of the exclusions in Section 2.18(b) applied) attributable to such Lender, in each case, that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent in connection with any Loan Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this paragraph (f).
(g)Status of Lenders. (i) Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document (other than with respect to a U.K. Tax Deduction to which the provisions of Section 2.18(g)(iii) shall apply, as applicable) shall deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, any Lender, (other than with respect to a U.K. Tax Deduction to which the provisions of Section 2.18(g)(iii) shall apply, as applicable) if reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation


prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Company or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 2.18(g)(ii)(A), (ii)(B) and (ii)(D)) shall not be required if in the Lender's reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender. Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Company and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.
(ii)Without limiting the generality of the foregoing:
(A)any Lender that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to any Borrower and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of such Borrower or the Administrative Agent), copies of executed IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. Federal backup withholding tax;
(B)any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to any Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of such Borrower or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:
(1) in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Loan Document, copies of executed IRS Form W-8BEN or Form W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. Federal withholding Tax pursuant to the 'interest' article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Loan Document, IRS Form W-8BEN or Form W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. Federal withholding Tax pursuant to the 'business profits' or 'other income' article of such tax treaty;
(2) copies of executed IRS Form W-8ECI;
(3) in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (x) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit I-1 to the effect that such Foreign Lender is not a 'bank' within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a '10


percent shareholder' of the relevant Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a 'controlled foreign corporation' described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (a 'U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate') and (y) copies of executed IRS Form W-8BEN or Form W-8BEN-E; or
(4)to the extent a Foreign Lender is not the beneficial owner, copies of executed IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit I-2 or Exhibit I-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Foreign Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit I-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner;
(C)any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to any Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of such Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed copies of any other form prescribed by applicable law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. Federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable law to permit such Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and
(D)if a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. Federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to any Borrower and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by such Borrower or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by such Borrower or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for such Borrower and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender's obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this clause (D), 'FATCA' shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the Closing Date.


(iii)Without limiting the effect of Sections 2.18(g)(i) and (ii) above:
(A)subject to paragraph (B) below, a U.K. Treaty Lender and each Loan Party which makes a payment to which that U.K. Treaty Lender is entitled shall cooperate in completing any procedural formalities necessary for that Loan Party to obtain authorization to make that payment without a U.K. Tax Deduction;
(B)
(1) a U.K. Treaty Lender which is a Lender on the date of this Agreement and that holds a passport under the HMRC DT Treaty Passport scheme, and which wishes that scheme to apply to this Agreement, shall confirm its scheme reference number and its jurisdiction of tax residence opposite its name in Schedule 1.01(a); and
(2) a U.K. Treaty Lender which is not a Lender on the date of this Agreement and that holds a passport under the HMRC DT Treaty Passport scheme, and which wishes that scheme to apply to this Agreement, shall confirm its scheme reference number and its jurisdiction of tax residence in the relevant Assignment and Assumption (or, if such Lender becomes Lender otherwise than pursuant to an Assignment and Assumption, in the relevant documentation which it executes on becoming a Lender under this Agreement),
and, having done so, that Lender shall be under no obligation pursuant to paragraph (A) above.
(C)if a U.K. Treaty Lender has confirmed its scheme reference number and its jurisdiction of tax residence in accordance with paragraph (B) above and: (a) a U.K. Borrower making a payment to that Lender has not made a U.K. Borrower DTTP Filing in respect of that Lender; or (b) a U.K. Borrower making a payment to that Lender has made a U.K. Borrower DTTP Filing but (1) that U.K. Borrower DTTP Filing has been rejected by HM Revenue & Customs; or (2) HM Revenue & Customs have not given the U.K. Borrower authority to make payments to that Lender without a U.K. Tax Deduction within 60 days of the date of the U.K. Borrower DTTP Filing, and in each case, the U.K. Borrower has notified that Lender in writing, that Lender and the U.K. Borrower shall co-operate in completing any procedural formalities necessary for that U.K. Borrower to obtain authorization to make that payment without a U.K. Tax Deduction.
(D)If a U.K. Treaty Lender has not confirmed its scheme reference number and jurisdiction of tax residence in accordance with paragraph (B) above, no U.K. Borrower shall make a U.K. Borrower DTTP Filing or file any other form relating to the HM Revenue &


Customs DT Treaty Passport scheme in respect of that Lender's Loan(s) unless that Lender otherwise agrees.
(E)A U.K. Borrower shall, promptly on making a U.K. Borrower DTTP Filing, deliver a copy of that U.K. Borrower DTTP Filing to the Administrative Agent for delivery to the relevant U.K. Treaty Lender.
(F)A U.K. Non-Bank Lender which becomes a party to this Agreement on the day on which this agreement is entered into gives a U.K. Tax Confirmation by entering into this Agreement. A U.K. Non-Bank Lender shall promptly notify the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent if there is any change in the position from that set out in the U.K. Tax Confirmation.
(G)Each Lender in respect of a Borrower incorporated in the U.K. which becomes a party to this Agreement after the date of this Agreement shall indicate in the Assignment and Assumption (or, if such Lender becomes Lender otherwise than pursuant to an Assignment and Assumption, in the relevant documentation which it executes on becoming a Lender under this Agreement) which of the following categories it falls in: (A) not a U.K. Qualifying Lender; (B) a U.K. Qualifying Lender (other than a U.K. Treaty Lender); or (C) a U.K. Treaty Lender. If a Lender fails to indicate its status in accordance with this paragraph (G) then such Lender shall be treated for the purposes of this Agreement (including by each Borrower) as if it is not a U.K. Qualifying Lender until such time as it notifies the Administrative Agent which category applies (and the Administrative Agent, upon receipt of such notification, shall inform each Borrowers). For the avoidance of doubt, any such Assignment and Assumption or other relevant documentation shall not be invalidated by any such failure of a Lender to comply with this paragraph (G).
(H)The Company shall promptly on becoming aware that a Loan Party incorporated in the United Kingdom must make a U.K. Tax Deduction (or that there is any change in the rate or basis of a U.K. Tax Deduction) notify the Administrative Agent accordingly. Similarly, a Lender shall notify the Administrative Agent on becoming so aware in respect of a payment payable to that Lender. If the Administrative Agent receives such notification from a Lender it shall promptly notify the Company and that Loan Party.
(h)Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 2.18 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.18), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 2.18 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental


Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph, in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed, and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This paragraph shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.
(i)For purposes of this Section 2.18, the term 'Lender' includes each Issuing Lender and the Swingline Lender.
(j)VAT.
(A) All amounts expressed to be payable under any Loan Document by any Party to a Recipient, Syndication Agent, Co-Documentation Agent, Joint Lead Arranger or Joint Bookrunner (each, for the purposes of this paragraph 2.18(j), a 'Finance Party') which (in whole or in part) constitute the consideration for any supply for VAT purposes are deemed to be exclusive of any VAT which is chargeable on that supply, and accordingly, subject to subsection (B) below, if VAT is or becomes chargeable on any supply made by any Finance Party to any Party under a Loan Document and such Finance Party is required to account to the relevant tax authority for the VAT, that Party must pay to such Finance Party (in addition to and at the same time as paying any other consideration for such supply) an amount equal to the amount of the VAT (and such Finance Party must promptly provide an appropriate VAT invoice to that Party).
(B) If VAT is or becomes chargeable on any supply made by any Finance Party (the 'Supplier') to any other Finance Party (the 'VAT Recipient') under a Loan Document, and any Party other than the VAT Recipient (the 'Relevant Party') is required by the terms of any Loan Document to pay an amount equal to the consideration for that supply to the Supplier (rather than being required to reimburse or indemnify the VAT Recipient in respect of that consideration):
(1)(where the Supplier is the person required to account to the relevant tax authority for the VAT) the Relevant Party must also pay to the Supplier (at the same time as paying that amount) an additional amount equal to the amount of the VAT. The VAT Recipient must (where this paragraph (1) applies) promptly pay to the Relevant Party an amount equal to any credit or repayment the VAT Recipient receives from the relevant tax authority which the VAT Recipient reasonably determines relates to the VAT chargeable on that supply; and
(2)(where the VAT Recipient is the person required to account to the relevant tax authority for the VAT) the Relevant Party must promptly, following demand from the VAT Recipient, pay to the VAT Recipient an amount equal to the VAT chargeable on that supply but only to the extent that the VAT


Recipient reasonably determines that it is not entitled to credit or repayment from the relevant tax authority in respect of that VAT.
(C) Where a Loan Document requires any Party to reimburse or indemnify a Finance Party for any cost or expense, that Party shall reimburse or indemnify (as the case may be) such Finance Party for the full amount of such cost or expense, including such part thereof as represents VAT, save to the extent that such Finance Party reasonably determines that it is entitled to credit or repayment in respect of such VAT from the relevant tax authority.
(D) In relation to any supply made by a Finance Party to any Party under a Loan Document, if reasonably requested by such Finance Party, that Party must promptly provide such Finance Party with details of that Party's VAT registration and such other information as is reasonably requested in connection with such Finance Party's VAT reporting requirements in relation to such supply.
(E) Any reference in this section 2.18(j) to any party shall, at any time when such party is treated as a member of a group for VAT purposes, include (where appropriate and unless the context otherwise requires) a reference to the person who is treated as making the supply or (as appropriate) receiving the supply under the grouping rules (as provided for in the Value Added Tax Act 1994, Article 11 of the Council Directive 2006/112/EC (or as implemented by the relevant member state of the European Union or any other similar provision in any jurisdiction other than the United Kingdom or a member state of the European Union)).
SECTION 2.19Payments Generally; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Setoffs. (a) (i) Each borrowing by a Borrower from the Lenders hereunder, each payment by a Borrower on account of any commitment fee and any reduction of the Commitments of the Lenders shall be made ratably among the Lenders in accordance with their respective Commitments of the applicable Class.
(ii)Each payment (including each prepayment) by the Company on account of principal and interest on the Term Loans of any Class shall be made pro rata according to the respective outstanding principal amounts of the Term Loans of such Class then held by the Term Lenders.
(iii)Each payment (including each prepayment) by a Borrower on account of principal of and interest on the Revolving Loans shall be made pro rata according to the respective outstanding amounts of the Revolving Loans then held by the Revolving Lenders.
(b)All payments to be made by the Borrowers shall be made free and clear of and without condition or deduction for any counterclaim, defense, recoupment or setoff. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein and except with respect to principal of and interest on Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency, all payments by the Borrowers hereunder shall be made to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the respective Lenders to which such payment is owed, at the applicable Administrative Agent's Office in Dollars and in Same Day Funds not later than 2:00 p.m. on the date specified herein. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments by the Borrowers hereunder with respect to principal and interest on Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency shall be made to the Administrative Agent, for the


account of the respective Lenders to which such payment is owed, at the applicable Administrative Agent's Office in such Alternative Currency and in Same Day Funds not later than the Applicable Time specified by the Administrative Agent on the dates specified herein. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent may require that any payments due under this Agreement be made in the United States. If, for any reason, any Borrower is prohibited by any Requirement of Law from making any required payment hereunder in an Alternative Currency, such Borrower shall make such payment in Dollars in the Dollar Equivalent of the Alternative Currency payment amount. All such payments shall be made to the Administrative Agent at the Funding Office, except payments pursuant to Sections 2.16, 2.17, 2.18 and 9.03 shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto and payments pursuant to other Loan Documents shall be made to the Persons specified therein. Any amounts received after the time required to be received hereunder on any date may, in the discretion of the Administrative Agent, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. The Administrative Agent shall distribute any such payment received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof. Each Lender at its option may change its branch office for purposes of such distribution of payments hereunder to any domestic or foreign branch of such Lender by providing written notice of such change to the Administrative Agent no later than the date that is three Business Days prior to the date of the applicable payment; provided that such Lender shall have delivered to the Administrative Agent and the Company properly completed and executed documentation as required under Section 2.18 as will permit such payments to be made to such branch office without deduction or withholding for any Tax in excess of the deduction or withholding for any Tax that would be imposed if the Lender did not change its branch office. Except as otherwise expressly set forth herein, if any payment under any Loan Document shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be payable for the period of such extension. All payments required to be made by any Loan Party under any Loan Document shall be made in Dollars except that any amounts payable under Section 2.16, 2.17 or 9.03 (or any indemnification or expense reimbursement provision of any other Loan Document) that are invoiced in a currency other than Dollars shall be payable in the currency so invoiced.
(c)If at any time insufficient funds are received by and available to the Administrative Agent to pay fully all amounts of principal, interest and fees then due hereunder, such funds shall be applied (i) first, towards payment of interest and fees then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of interest and fees then due to such parties, and (ii) second, towards payment of principal then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of principal then due to such parties.
(d)Except to the extent that this Agreement provides for payments to be disproportionately allocated to or retained by a particular Lender or group of Lenders (including Lenders as opposed to Defaulting Lenders or in connection with the payment of interest or fees at different rates and the repayment of principal amounts of Term Loans at different times as a result of Refinancing Facility Agreements pursuant to Section 2.23), each Lender agrees that if it shall, by exercising any right of setoff or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any Obligations owing to it resulting in such Lender receiving payment of a greater proportion of its Obligations than the proportion received by any other Lender, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall notify the Administrative Agent of such fact and shall purchase (for cash


at face value) participations in the Obligations of other Lenders to the extent necessary so that the aggregate amount of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders ratably in accordance with the aggregate Obligations owing to the Lenders (calculated prior to giving effect to such payment); provided that (i) if any such participations are purchased and all or any portion of the payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest, and (ii) the provisions of this paragraph shall not be construed to apply to any payment made by a Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement (for the avoidance of doubt, as in effect from time to time), or any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans or Commitments to any Person that is an Eligible Assignee (as such term is defined from time to time). Each Borrower consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable law, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against such Borrower rights of setoff and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of such Borrower in the amount of such participation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent prohibited by applicable law as described in the definition of the term 'Excluded Swap Obligation,' no amounts received from, or set off with respect to, any Loan Party shall be applied to any Excluded Swap Obligations of such Loan Party.
(e)Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the applicable Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders or an Issuing Lender hereunder that such Borrower will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Borrower have made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the Lenders and such Issuing Lender the amount due. With respect to any payment that the Administrative Agent makes for the account of the Lenders or an Issuing Lender hereunder as to which the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that any of the following applies (such payment referred to as the 'Rescindable Amount') : (1) such Borrower has not in fact made such payment; (2) the Administrative Agent has made a payment in excess of the amount so paid by such Borrower (whether or not then owed); or (3) the Administrative agent has for any reason otherwise erroneously made such payment; then each of the Lenders or the applicable Issuing Lender, as the case may be, severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the Rescindable Amount so distributed to such Lender or such Issuing Lender, in immediately available funds with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at the greater of the Federal Funds Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation. A notice of the Administrative Agent to any Lender or the Company with respect to any amount owing under this clause (b) shall be conclusive, absent manifest error.
(f)The obligations of the Lenders hereunder to make Loans, to fund participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans and to make payments pursuant to Section 9.03(c) are several and not joint. The failure of any Lender to make any Loan, to fund any such participation or to make any payment under Section 9.03(c) on any date required hereunder shall not relieve any other Lender of its corresponding obligation to do so on such date, and no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to so make its Loan, to purchase its participation or to make its payment under Section 9.03(c).


(g)If any Lender makes available to the Administrative Agent funds for any Loan to be made by such Lender as provided in the foregoing provisions of this Article II, and such funds are not made available to the Company by the Administrative Agent because the conditions to the applicable Loan set forth in Article IV are not satisfied or waived in accordance with the terms hereof, the Administrative Agent shall return such funds (in like funds as received from such Lender) to such Lender, without interest.
SECTION 2.20Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders. (a) If any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.16, or if any Loan Party is required to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or to any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.18, then such Lender shall (at the request of the Company) use commercially reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign and delegate its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or Affiliates if, in the judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment and delegation (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.16 or 2.18, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous in any material respect to such Lender. The Company hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment and delegation.
(b)If (i) any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.16, (ii) any Borrower is required to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.18 or (iii) any Lender has become a Defaulting Lender or Non-Consenting Lender, then the Company may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 9.04), all its interests, rights (other than its existing rights to payments pursuant to Section 2.16 or 2.18) and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to an Eligible Assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment and delegation); provided that (A) the Company shall have paid to the Administrative Agent the processing and recordation fee (if any) specified in Section 9.04(b)(ii)(C),(B) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts (including, for all such Lenders other than Defaulting Lenders, any amounts under Section 2.17) payable to it hereunder and under the other Loan Documents (if applicable, in each case only to the extent such amounts relate to its interest as a Lender of a particular Class) from the assignee (in the case of such principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Company (in the case of all other amounts), (C) in the case of any such assignment and delegation resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 2.16 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 2.17, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments and (D) such assignment does not conflict with applicable law. A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver or consent by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Company to require such assignment and delegation have ceased to apply.
SECTION 2.21Defaulting Lenders.


(a)Adjustments. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then, until such time as that Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable law:
(i)Waivers and Amendments. Such Defaulting Lender's right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent with respect to this Agreement shall be restricted as set forth in the definition of 'Majority in Interest', the definition of 'Required Lenders' and Section 9.01.
(ii)Defaulting Lender Waterfall. Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, in connection with the exercise of remedies or otherwise) or received by the Administrative Agent from a Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 9.08 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 such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent hereunder; second, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Issuing Lenders or Swingline Lender hereunder; third, if such Defaulting Lender is a Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender, to Cash Collateralize the Issuing Lenders' Fronting Exposure with respect to such Defaulting Lender in accordance with clause (c) below; fourth, as the Company may request (so long as no Default exists), to the funding of any Loan in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Administrative Agent; fifth, if so determined by the Administrative Agent and the Company, to be held in a deposit account and released pro rata in order to (x) satisfy such Defaulting Lender's potential future funding obligations with respect to Loans under this Agreement and (y) if such Defaulting Lender is a Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender, Cash Collateralize the Issuing Lenders' future Fronting Exposure with respect to such Defaulting Lender with respect to future Letters of Credit issued under this Agreement, in accordance with clause (c) below; sixth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders, the Issuing Lenders or the Swingline Lender as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender, the Issuing Lenders or the Swingline Lender against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender's breach of its obligations under this Agreement; seventh, so long as no Default exists, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Company as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Company against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender's breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and eighth, to such Defaulting 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 Loans or any L/C Obligations in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share, and (y) such Loans were made or the related Letters of Credit were issued at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Loans of, and L/C Obligations owed to, all non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Loans of, or L/C Obligations owed to, such Defaulting Lender until such time as all Loans and funded and unfunded participations in L/C Obligations and Swingline Loans are held by the Lenders pro rata in accordance with the Commitments hereunder without giving effect to Section 2.21(a)(iv). Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender or to post


Cash Collateral pursuant to this Section 2.21(a)(ii) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by such Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto.
(iii)Certain Fees.
(G)No Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive any fee payable under Section 2.13(b) for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender (and the Company shall not be required to pay any such fee that otherwise would have been required to have been paid to that Defaulting Lender).
(H)Each Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive fees payable under Section 2.06(c) for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender only to the extent allocable to its Applicable Percentage of the stated amount of Letters of Credit for which it has provided Cash Collateral pursuant to clause (c) below.
(I)With respect to any fees payable under Section 2.06(c) or Section 2.13(b) not required to be paid to any Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (A) or (B) above, the Company shall (x) pay to each non-Defaulting Lender that portion of any such fee otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender with respect to such Defaulting Lender's participation in L/C Obligations or Swingline Loans that has been reallocated to such non-Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (iv) below, (y) pay to applicable Issuing Lender and Swingline Lender, as applicable , the amount of any such fee otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender to the extent allocable to such Issuing Lender's or Swingline Lender's Fronting Exposure to such Defaulting Lender, and (z) not be required to pay the remaining amount of any such fee.
(iv)Reallocation of Applicable Percentages to Reduce Fronting Exposure. If such Defaulting Lender is a Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender, all or any part of such Defaulting Lender's participation in L/C Obligations and Swingline Loans shall be reallocated among the non-Defaulting Lenders of the same Class in accordance with their respective Applicable Percentages (calculated without regard to such Defaulting Lender's Commitment) but only to the extent that such reallocation does not cause the aggregate Dollar Tranche Revolving Credit Exposure of any non-Defaulting Lender to exceed such non-Defaulting Lender's Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitment. Subject to Section 9.21, no reallocation hereunder shall constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder against a Defaulting Lender arising from that Lender having become a Defaulting Lender, including any claim of a non-Defaulting Lender as a result of such non-Defaulting Lender's increased exposure following such reallocation.
(v)Cash Collateral, Repayment of Swingline Loans. If the reallocation described in clause (a)(iv) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Company shall, without prejudice to any right or remedy available to it hereunder or under applicable Requirement of Law, (x) first, prepay Swingline Loans in an amount equal to the Swingline Lenders' Fronting Exposure and (y) second, Cash Collateralize the Issuing Lenders' Fronting Exposure in accordance with the procedures set forth in clause (c) below.
(b)Defaulting Lender Cure. If the Company and the Administrative Agent and, if such Defaulting Lender is a Dollar Tranche Revolving Lender, the Swingline Lender and the Issuing Lenders agree in writing that such Defaulting Lender is no longer a Defaulting 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 at par that portion of outstanding Loans of the other Lenders or take such other actions as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Revolving Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans to be held on a pro rata basis by the Lenders in accordance with their Applicable Percentages (without giving effect to Section 2.21(a)(iv)), whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Company while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender's having been a Defaulting Lender.
(c)Cash Collateral.
(i)If (A) there shall exist a Defaulting Lender or (B) as of the Maturity Date, any L/C Obligation for any reason remains outstanding, the Company shall within one Business Day following any request by the Administrative Agent or any Issuing Lender, provide Cash Collateral in an amount not less than the applicable Minimum Collateral Amount (determined after giving effect to Section 2.18(a)(iv) and any Cash Collateral provided by the Defaulting Lender). Additionally, if the Administrative Agent notifies the Company at any time that the outstanding amount of all L/C Obligations at such time exceeds 105% of the L/C Commitment then in effect, then within two Business Days after receipt of such notice, the Company shall provide Cash Collateral for the outstanding amount of the L/C Obligations in an amount not less than the amount by which the outstanding amount of all L/C Obligations exceeds the L/C Commitment.
(ii)The Company, and to the extent provided by any Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender, hereby grants to (and subjects to the control of) the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lenders and the Lenders, and agrees to maintain, a first priority security interest in all such cash, deposit accounts and all balances therein, and all other property so provided as collateral pursuant hereto, and in all proceeds of the foregoing, all as security for the obligations to which such Cash Collateral may be applied pursuant to clause (iii) below at any time the Administrative Agent determines that Cash Collateral is subject to any right or claim of any Person other than the Administrative Agent or the Issuing Lenders as herein provided, or that the total amount of such Cash Collateral is less than the Minimum Collateral Amount, the Company will, promptly upon demand by the Administrative Agent, pay or provide to the Administrative Agent additional Cash Collateral in an amount sufficient to eliminate such deficiency. All Cash Collateral (other than credit support not constituting funds subject to deposit) shall be maintained in at Bank of America. The Company shall pay on demand therefor from time to time all customary account opening, activity and other administrative fees and charges in connection with the maintenance and disbursement of Cash Collateral.
(iii)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Cash Collateral provided under any of this Section 2.21(c) shall be held and applied to the satisfaction of the specific L/C Obligations, obligations to fund participations therein (including, as to Cash Collateral provided by a Defaulting Lender, any interest accrued on


such obligation) and other obligations for which the Cash Collateral was so provided, prior to any other application of such property as may otherwise be provided for herein.
(iv)Cash Collateral (or the appropriate portion thereof) shall be released promptly following the termination of Defaulting Lender status of the applicable Defaulting Lender.
SECTION 2.22Incremental Facilities. (a) The Company may on one or more occasions after the Closing Date, by written notice to the Administrative Agent, request the establishment of Incremental Commitments; provided that the aggregate amount of the Incremental Commitments incurred under this Section 2.22 on any date shall not exceed the sum of (x) an amount equal to the Base Incremental Amount in effect on such date, (y) an amount subject to the Maximum Incremental Amount as of such date and (z) an amount equal to the Voluntary Prepayment Amount as of such date (it being understood that (A) the Company shall be deemed to have used amounts under clause (y) above prior to utilization of amounts under clause (x) or (z) above and (B) the proceeds from any such incurrence under such clauses may be utilized in a single transaction by first calculating the incurrence under clause (y) above and then calculating the incurrence under clauses (x) and/or (z) above). Each such notice shall specify (A) whether the Company is requesting Incremental Term Commitments or Incremental Revolving Commitments, (B) the date on which the Company proposes that the Incremental Commitments shall be effective, which shall be a date not less than five (5) Business Days (or such shorter period as may be agreed to by the Administrative Agent) after the date on which such notice is delivered to the Administrative Agent and (C) the amount of the Incremental Commitments being requested (it being agreed that (x) any Lender approached to provide any Incremental Commitments may elect or decline, in its sole discretion, to provide such Incremental Commitments and (y) any Person that the Company proposes to become an Incremental Lender, if such Person is not then a Lender, must be an Eligible Assignee).
(b)The terms and conditions of any Incremental Term Facility and the Incremental Term Loans to be made thereunder shall be, except as otherwise set forth herein or in the applicable Incremental Facility Amendment, substantially consistent to those of the Term Commitments and the Term Loans and, to the extent such terms and conditions are not substantially consistent with the terms and conditions applicable to the Term Commitments and the Term Loans, such terms and conditions shall not be more favorable, taken as a whole, to the Incremental Term Lenders providing such Incremental Term Facility than the terms of the existing Term Commitments and the Term Loans, as applicable (other than with respect to terms and conditions applicable only after the Maturity Date); provided that (i) the upfront fees, original issue discount, interest rates, interest rate margins, interest rate floors, prepayment premiums, 'MFN' pricing protection, amortization schedule and final maturity applicable to any Incremental Term Facility and Incremental Term Loans shall be determined by the Company and the Incremental Term Lenders providing the relevant Incremental Term Commitments, (ii) except in the case of an Incremental Term Facility effected as an increase to an existing Class of Term Loans, the weighted average life to maturity of any Incremental Term Loans shall be no shorter than the remaining weighted average life to maturity of the Initial Terms Loans, (iii) no Incremental Term Maturity Date shall be earlier than the Term Maturity Date and (iv) any Incremental Term Facility, for purposes of prepayments (either mandatory or optional), shall be treated substantially the same as (or, at the election of the Incremental Lenders providing such Incremental Term Facility, on a basis less favorable than) the Initial Term Loans. Any Incremental Term Commitments established pursuant to an Incremental Facility Amendment that have identical terms and conditions, and any Incremental Term Loans made thereunder, shall be designated as a separate series (each a 'Series') of Incremental Term Commitments and


Incremental Term Loans for all purposes of this Agreement. Any Incremental Revolving Commitments established pursuant to an Incremental Facility Amendment shall have substantially the same terms as and be deemed to be Revolving Commitments for all purposes of this Agreement. Each Incremental Term Facility, any Incremental Revolving Commitments and all extensions of credit thereunder (i) shall be secured by the same Collateral securing the other Loan Document Obligations on a pari passu basis with the Liens on the Collateral securing the other Loan Document Obligations, (ii) shall not be secured by any property or assets of the Company or any of the Subsidiaries other than the Collateral (or property or assets that substantially concurrently become Collateral), unless otherwise permitted by this Agreement, (iii) shall be Guaranteed by the same Loan Parties that Guarantee the other Loan Document Obligations and (iv) shall not be Guaranteed by any Persons other than the Loan Parties, unless otherwise permitted by this Agreement.
(c)The Incremental Term Commitments and Incremental Term Facilities relating thereto and the Incremental Revolving Commitments shall be effected pursuant to one or more Incremental Facility Amendments executed and delivered by the Company, each Incremental Lender providing such Incremental Commitments and the Administrative Agent; provided that no Incremental Commitments shall become effective unless (i) no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing on the date of effectiveness thereof, both immediately prior to and immediately after giving effect to such Incremental Commitments (and assuming that the full amount of such Incremental Commitments shall have been funded as Loans on such date); provided that in case of any Incremental Acquisition Term Facility if agreed by all applicable Incremental Term Lenders, the foregoing shall be satisfied if no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing on the date of execution of the applicable acquisition or investment documentation and no Event of Default under clause (a), (b), (h) or (i) of Article VII shall have occurred and is continuing on the effective date of such Incremental Acquisition Term Facility, in each case determined after giving effect to such Incremental Commitments (and assuming that the full amount of such Incremental Commitments shall have been funded as Loans on the applicable date), (ii) on the date of effectiveness thereof, the representations and warranties of each Loan Party set forth in the Loan Documents (or, in the case of any Incremental Acquisition Term Facility if agreed by all applicable Incremental Term Lenders, the Specified Representations and the Specified Permitted Acquisition Agreement Representations) shall be true and correct (A) in the case of such representations and warranties qualified as to materiality or Material Adverse Effect, in all respects and (B) otherwise, in all material respects, in each case on and as of such date, except in the case of any such representation and warranty that expressly relates to a prior date, in which case such representation and warranty shall be so true and correct on and as of such prior date, (iii) the Company shall be in compliance on a Pro Forma Basis with the financial covenant set forth in Section 6.13, (iv) the relevant Borrower shall make any payments required to be made pursuant to Section 2.17 in connection with such Incremental Commitments and the related transactions under this Section 2.22 and (v) the Company shall have delivered to the Administrative Agent such legal opinions, board resolutions, secretary's certificates, officer's certificates and, other than in connection with a Limited Condition Acquisition, consents and approvals and other documents as shall be requested by the Administrative Agent in connection with any such transaction. Each Incremental Facility Amendment may, without the consent of any Lender, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the opinion of the Administrative Agent, to give effect to the provisions of this Section 2.22.


(d)Upon the effectiveness of an Incremental Commitment of any Incremental Lender, such Incremental Lender shall be deemed to be a 'Lender' (and a Lender in respect of Commitments and Loans of the applicable Class) hereunder, and henceforth shall be entitled to all the rights of, and benefits accruing to, Lenders (or Lenders in respect of Commitments and Loans of the applicable Class) hereunder and shall be bound by all agreements, acknowledgements and other obligations of Lenders (or Lenders in respect of Commitments and Loans of the applicable Class) hereunder and under the other Loan Documents.
(e)Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein and in the applicable Incremental Facility Amendment, each Lender holding an Incremental Term Commitment of any Series shall make an Incremental Term Loan to the Company in an amount equal to such Incremental Term Commitment on the date specified in such Incremental Facility Amendment.
(f)On the date of effectiveness of any Incremental Revolving Commitments, each Revolving Lender of the applicable Class shall assign to each Incremental Revolving Lender holding such Incremental Revolving Commitment, and each such Incremental Revolving Lender shall purchase from each such Revolving Lender, at the principal amount thereof (together with accrued interest), such interests in the applicable Class of Revolving Loans and, in the case of the Dollar Tranche Revolving Commitments, participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans outstanding on such date as shall be necessary in order that, after giving effect to all such assignments and purchases, such Revolving Loans and, if applicable, participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans will be held by all of the Revolving Lenders of the applicable Class (including such Incremental Revolving Lenders) ratably in accordance with their Revolving Percentages after giving effect to the effectiveness of such Incremental Revolving Commitments. The Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereby agree that the minimum borrowing, pro rata borrowing and pro rata payment requirements contained elsewhere in this Agreement shall not apply to the transactions effected pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence.
(g)The Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders promptly upon receipt by the Administrative Agent of any notice from the Company referred to in Section 2.22(a) and of the effectiveness of any Incremental Commitments in each case advising the Lenders of the details thereof.
(h)If an Incremental Term Loan borrowed by a Borrower (other than a Foreign Obligor) hereunder would otherwise constitute an 'applicable high yield discount obligation' within the meaning of Section 163(i)(1) of the Code, before the close of each accrual period ending after the fifth anniversary of the issue date of such Loan, the applicable Borrower shall make such payments on the Incremental Term Loan as required to prevent the Incremental Term Loan from being treated as an 'applicable high yield discount obligation'.
SECTION 2.23Refinancing Facilities. (a) The Company may, on one or more occasions after the Closing Date, by written notice to the Administrative Agent, the applicable Refinancing Lenders and, to the extent that the rights, duties or privileges of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lenders or the Swingline Lender are affected, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lenders or the Swingline Lender, respectively (such consent, in each case, not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), request the establishment hereunder of one or more additional Classes of (i) term loan commitments (the 'Refinancing Term Loan Commitments') pursuant to which each Person providing such a commitment (a 'Refinancing Term Lender') will make term loans to the Company (the 'Refinancing Term Loans') and (ii) revolving commitments (the 'Refinancing Revolving Commitments;' together with Refinancing Term


Loan Commitments, the 'Refinancing Commitments') pursuant to which each Person providing such a commitment (a 'Refinancing Revolving Lender') will provide revolving commitments to the Borrowers; provided that each Refinancing Lender shall be an Eligible Assignee and shall otherwise be reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent to the extent that the Administrative Agent's consent would be required in connection with an assignment to such Refinancing Lender of a Term Loan or a Revolving Commitment, as applicable, pursuant to Section 9.04.
(b)The Refinancing Commitments shall be effected pursuant to one or more Refinancing Facility Agreements executed and delivered by the Borrowers, each Refinancing Lender providing the applicable Refinancing Commitments and the Administrative Agent; provided that no Refinancing Commitments shall become effective unless (i) no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing on the date of effectiveness thereof, (ii) on the date of effectiveness thereof, the representations and warranties of each Loan Party set forth in the Loan Documents shall be true and correct (A) in the case of the representations and warranties qualified as to materiality or Material Adverse Effect, in all respects and (B) otherwise, in all material respects, in each case on and as of such date, except in the case of any such representation and warranty that specifically relates to an earlier date, in which case such representation and warranty shall be so true and correct on and as of such earlier date, (iii) the Borrowers shall have delivered to the Administrative Agent such legal opinions, board resolutions, secretary's certificates, officer's certificates, consent and approvals and other documents as shall reasonably be requested by the applicable Refinancing Lender in connection with any such transaction, (iv) with respect to Refinancing Term Loan Commitments, substantially concurrently with the effectiveness thereof, the Company shall obtain Refinancing Term Loans thereunder and shall repay or prepay then outstanding Term Loan Borrowings of one or more Classes in an aggregate principal amount equal to the aggregate amount of such Refinancing Term Loan Commitments; provided that the principal amount of such Refinancing Term Loans shall not exceed the amount of the Term Loan Borrowings so refinanced (plus the aggregate amount of accrued and unpaid interest with respect to such outstanding Term Loan Borrowings, fees, expenses, commissions, underwriting discounts and premiums payable in connection therewith) and (v) with respect to Refinancing Revolving Commitments, substantially concurrently with the effectiveness thereof, the Borrowers shall terminate an equivalent amount of Revolving Commitments and shall, to the extent necessary, repay or prepay then outstanding Borrowings of Revolving Loans in an aggregate principal amount such that after giving effect to such prepayment, the Revolving Lenders and the Refinancing Revolving Lenders hold outstanding Loans ratably in accordance with the outstanding Revolving Commitments and the outstanding Refinancing Revolving Commitments; provided further that (x) at no time shall there be more than three Classes of revolving Commitments hereunder unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent and (y) in the case of any Refinancing Commitments to be provided in connection with an LCA Action, at the sole option of the Company, the conditions in clauses (i) and/or (ii) above may be tested at the time that the definitive agreement with respect to such LCA Action is entered into (except, in the case of (i), no Event of Default under clause (a), (b), (h) or (i) of Article VII shall have occurred and is continuing on the effective date of such Refinancing Commitments) and the consents, approvals and other documents referred to in clause (iii) may be provided after the Refinancing Commitments have become effective, in each case so long as agreed to by the lenders providing such Refinancing Commitments (but without the consent of any existing Lenders or the Administrative Agent). With respect to any prepayment of Term Loans in accordance with clause (iv) above, the Company shall determine the amount of such prepayments allocated to each Class of outstanding Term Loans, and any such prepayment of Term Loan Borrowings of any Class shall be applied to reduce the subsequent scheduled repayments of Term


Loan Borrowings of such Class to be made pursuant to Section 2.11(a) as directed by the Company.
(c)The Refinancing Facility Agreement shall set forth, with respect to the Refinancing Commitments established thereby and the Refinancing Loans and other extensions of credit to be made thereunder, to the extent applicable, the following terms thereof: (i) the designation of such Refinancing Commitments and Refinancing Loans as a new 'Class' for all purposes hereof (provided that with the consent of the Administrative Agent, any Refinancing Commitments and Refinancing Loans may be treated as a single 'Class' with any then-outstanding existing Commitments or Loans), (ii) the stated termination and maturity dates applicable to the Refinancing Commitments or Refinancing Loans of such Class, provided that (A) such stated termination and maturity dates shall not be earlier than the Maturity Date applicable to the Class of Loans or Revolving Commitments, as applicable, so refinanced and (B) any Refinancing Term Loans shall not have a weighted average life to maturity shorter than the Class of Term Loans so refinanced, (iii) in the case of any Refinancing Term Loans, any amortization applicable thereto and the effect thereon of any prepayment of such Refinancing Term Loans, (iv) the interest rate or rates applicable to the Refinancing Loans of such Class, (v) the fees applicable to the Refinancing Commitments or Refinancing Loans of such Class, (vi) in the case of any Refinancing Term Loans, any original issue discount or upfront fees applicable thereto and in the case of any Refinancing Revolving Commitments, any upfront fees applicable thereto, (vii) the initial Interest Period or Interest Periods applicable to Refinancing Loans of such Class, (viii) any voluntary or mandatory commitment reduction or prepayment requirements applicable to Refinancing Commitments or Refinancing Loans of such Class (which prepayment requirements, in the case of any Refinancing Term Loans, may provide that such Refinancing Term Loans may participate in any mandatory prepayment on a pro rata basis with any Class of existing Term Loans, but may not provide for prepayment requirements that are more favorable to the Lenders holding such Refinancing Term Loans than to the Lenders holding such Class of Term Loans) and any restrictions on the voluntary or mandatory reductions or prepayments of Refinancing Commitments or Refinancing Loans of such Class and (ix) any financial maintenance covenant with which the Company shall be required to comply (provided that if any Refinancing Term Loans or Refinancing Revolving Commitments, as applicable, have a financial maintenance covenant at any time prior to the Maturity Date of the Loans or Commitments being refinanced, such financial maintenance covenant shall not be more restrictive with respect to the Company and its Subsidiaries than (or in addition to) the financial maintenance covenant set forth in Section 6.13 (unless such financial maintenance covenant is also added to this Agreement for the benefit of all Lenders)). Except as contemplated by the preceding sentence, the terms of the Refinancing Term Loan Commitments and Refinancing Term Loans or the Refinancing Revolving Commitments and Refinancing Revolving Loans, as applicable, shall be substantially the same as the terms of the existing Term Commitments and the existing Term Loans or the existing Revolving Commitments and the existing Revolving Loans, as applicable, and in any event no more restrictive, taken as a whole, with respect to the Company or any Subsidiary than those set forth in the Loan Documents with respect to the existing Term Commitments and the existing Term Loans or the existing Revolving Commitments and the existing Revolving Loans, as applicable (other than covenants or other provisions applicable only to periods after the Maturity Date of the Loans and Commitments being refinanced by such Refinancing Commitments and Refinancing Loans). With the consent of the Issuing Lenders or the Swingline Lender, as applicable, any Refinancing Facility Agreement may provide for the issuance of Letters of Credit for the account of the Company or its Subsidiaries, or the provision to the Company of Swingline Loans, pursuant to any Revolving Commitments established thereby, in


each case on terms substantially equivalent to the terms applicable to Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans under the Revolving Commitments. The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender as to the effectiveness of each Refinancing Facility Agreement. Each Refinancing Facility Agreement may, without the consent of any Lender other than the applicable Refinancing Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the opinion of the Administrative Agent, to give effect to the provisions of this Section 2.23, including any amendments necessary to treat the applicable Refinancing Commitments and Refinancing Loans as a new 'Class' of loans and/or commitments hereunder; provided that as between the Revolving Commitments and Refinancing Revolving Commitments, all Borrowings, all prepayments of Loans and all reductions of Commitments shall continue to be made on a ratable basis among the Lenders with Revolving Commitments and Refinancing Revolving Commitments, based on the relative amounts of their Commitments; provided further that the allocation of the participation exposure with respect to Swingline Loans and Letters of Credit as between the Refinancing Revolving Commitments and the remaining Revolving Commitments shall be made on a ratable basis in accordance with the relative amounts thereof (if any) until the Maturity Date in respect of the earlier maturing Commitments (it being understood that no reallocation of such exposure to later maturing Commitments shall occur on such Maturity Date if such reallocation would cause the Revolving Extensions of Credit of any Lender to exceed its applicable Commitment). The Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereby acknowledge that the minimum borrowing, pro rata borrowing and pro rata payment requirements contained elsewhere in this Agreement are not intended to apply to the transactions effected pursuant to this Section 2.23.
(d)Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is hereby understood and agreed that, on and after the Collateral Release Event, the Company shall not obtain any secured Refinancing Term Loans or secured Refinancing Commitments unless (x) the Company has elected to terminate the Collateral Release Period pursuant to Section 5.17 and (y) the Obligations are equally and ratably secured and such secured Refinancing Term Loans or secured Refinancing Commitments, as applicable, are subject to an Intercreditor Agreement.
(e)This Section 2.23 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.19 or Section 9.02 to the contrary.
SECTION 2.24Loan Modification Offers. (a) The Borrowers may on one or more occasions after the Closing Date, by written notice to the Administrative Agent, make one or more offers (each, a 'Loan Modification Offer') to all (and not fewer than all) the Lenders of one or more Classes (each Class subject to such a Loan Modification Offer, an 'Affected Class') to make one or more Permitted Amendments pursuant to procedures reasonably specified by the Administrative Agent and reasonably acceptable to the Company. Such notice shall set forth (i) the terms and conditions of the requested Loan Modification Offer and (ii) the date on which such Loan Modification Offer is requested to become effective. Permitted Amendments shall become effective only with respect to the Loans and Commitments of the Lenders of the Affected Class that accept the applicable Loan Modification Offer (such Lenders, the 'Accepting Lenders') and, in the case of any Accepting Lender, only with respect to such Lender's Loans and Commitments of such Affected Class as to which such Lender's acceptance has been made. With respect to all Permitted Amendments consummated by the Borrowers pursuant to this Section 2.24, (i) such Permitted Amendments shall not constitute voluntary or mandatory payments or prepayments for purposes of Section 2.12 and (ii) any Loan Modification Offer, unless contemplating a Maturity Date already in effect hereunder pursuant to a previously consummated Permitted Amendment, must be in a minimum amount of $25,000,000 (or such lesser amount as may be approved by the


Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion); provided that the Borrowers may at their election specify as a condition (a 'Minimum Extension Condition') to consummating any such Permitted Amendment that a minimum amount (to be determined and specified in the relevant Loan Modification Offer in the Borrowers' sole discretion and which may be waived by the Borrowers) of Commitments or Loans of any or all Affected Classes be extended. If the aggregate principal amount of Commitments or Loans of any Affected Class in respect of which Lenders shall have accepted the relevant Loan Modification Offer shall exceed the maximum aggregate principal amount of Commitments or Loans of such Affected Class offered to be extended by the Borrowers pursuant to such Loan Modification Offer, then the Commitments and Loans of such Lenders shall be extended ratably up to such maximum amount based on the relative principal amounts (but not to exceed actual holdings of record) with respect to which such Lenders have accepted such Loan Modification Offer.
(b)A Permitted Amendment shall be effected pursuant to a Loan Modification Agreement executed and delivered by the Borrowers, each Accepting Lender and the Administrative Agent; provided that in the case of any Permitted Amendment relating to the Revolving Commitments and affecting the rights, duties or privileges of the Issuing Lenders or the Swingline Lender, each Issuing Lender and the Swingline Lender, respectively, shall have approved such Permitted Amendment; provided that no Permitted Amendment shall become effective unless (i) no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing on the date of effectiveness thereof, (ii) on the date of effectiveness thereof, the representations and warranties of each Loan Party set forth in the Loan Documents shall be true and correct (A) in the case of the representations and warranties qualified as to materiality or Material Adverse Effect, in all respects and (B) otherwise, in all material respects, in each case on and as of such date, except in the case of any such representation and warranty that specifically relates to an earlier date, in which case such representation and warranty shall be so true and correct on and as of such earlier date, (iii) the Borrowers shall have delivered, or agreed to deliver by a date following the effectiveness of such Permitted Amendment reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent, to the Administrative Agent such legal opinions, board resolutions, secretary's certificates, officer's certificates and other documents (including reaffirmation agreements, supplements and/or amendments to Mortgages or other Security Documents, in each case to the extent applicable) as shall reasonably be requested by the Administrative Agent in connection therewith and (iv) any applicable Minimum Extension Condition shall be satisfied (unless waived by the Borrowers). The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender as to the effectiveness of each Loan Modification Agreement. Each Loan Modification Agreement may, without the consent of any Lender other than the applicable Accepting Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent, to give effect to the provisions of this Section 2.24, including any amendments necessary to treat the applicable Loans and/or Commitments of the Accepting Lenders as a new Class of loans and/or commitments hereunder (and the Lenders hereby irrevocably authorize the Administrative Agent to enter into any such amendments); provided that all Borrowings, all prepayments of Loans and all reductions of Commitments shall continue to be made on a ratable basis among all Lenders, based on the relative amounts of their Commitments (i.e., both extended and non-extended), until the repayment of the Loans attributable to the non-extended Commitments (and the termination of the non-extended Commitments) on the relevant Maturity Date; provided further that in the case of any Loan Modification Offer relating to Revolving Commitments or Revolving Loans, the allocation of the participation exposure with respect to Swingline Loans and Letters of Credit as between the commitments extended hereunder and the remaining Revolving Commitments shall be made on a ratable basis as between such extended Commitments (if any) and the remaining Revolving Commitments until


the Maturity Date in respect of the non-extended Commitments (it being understood that no reallocation of such exposure to extended Commitments shall occur on such Maturity Date if such reallocation would cause the Revolving Extensions of Credit of any Lender to exceed its extended Commitments); providedfurther that at no time shall there be more than three Classes of revolving Commitments hereunder unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereby acknowledge that the minimum borrowing, pro rata borrowing and pro rata payment requirements contained elsewhere in this Agreement are not intended to apply to the transactions effected pursuant to this Section 2.24. This Section 2.24 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.19 or Section 9.02 to the contrary.
SECTION 2.25Illegality. (a) If any Lender determines that any Requirement of Law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for any Lender or its applicable lending office to perform any of its obligations hereunder or make, maintain or fund or charge interest with respect to any Borrowing or to determine or charge interest rates based upon a Relevant Rate, or any Governmental Authority has imposed material restrictions on the authority of such Lender to purchase or sell, or to take deposits of, Dollars or any Alternative Currency in the applicable interbank market, then, on notice thereof by such Lender to the Company through the Administrative Agent, (i) any obligation of such Lender to issue, make, maintain, fund or charge interest with respect to any such Borrowing or to make or continue Eurocurrency Rate Loans or Alternative Currency Loans in the affected currency or currencies or to convert Base Rate Loans to Eurocurrency Rate Loans, shall be suspended, and (ii) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender making or maintaining Base Rate Loans the interest rate on which is determined by reference to the Eurocurrency Rate component of the Base Rate, the interest rate on which Base Rate Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Eurocurrency Rate component of the Base Rate, in each case until such Lender notifies the Administrative Agent and the Company that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist. Upon receipt of such notice, (x) the Borrowers shall, upon demand from such Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), prepay all Alternative Currency Loans in the affected currency or currencies or, if applicable, in the case of Eurocurrency Rate Loans, convert all such Eurocurrency Rate Loans of such Lender to Base Rate Loans (the interest rate on which Base Rate Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Eurocurrency Rate component of the Base Rate), either on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, if such Lender may lawfully continue to maintain such Alternative Currency Loans or Eurocurrency Rate Loans to such day, or immediately, if such Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain such Loans and (y) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender determining or charging interest rates based upon the Eurocurrency Rate, the Administrative Agent shall during the period of such suspension compute the Base Rate applicable to such Lender without reference to the Eurocurrency Rate component thereof until the Administrative Agent is advised in writing by such Lender that it is no longer illegal for such Lender to determine or charge interest rates based upon the Eurocurrency Rate. Upon any such prepayment or conversion, the Borrowers shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so prepaid or converted.
(b)If, in any applicable jurisdiction, the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Lender or any Lender determines that any law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for the Administrative Agent, such Issuing Lender or any Lender to (i) perform any of its obligations hereunder or under any other Loan Document, (ii) to fund or maintain its participation in any Loan or Letter of Credit or (iii) issue, make, maintain, fund or charge interest or fees with respect to any Loan or Letter of Credit to any Designated Borrower who is organized under the laws of a jurisdiction other than the United States, a State thereof or the District of Columbia such Person shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent, then, upon


the Administrative Agent notifying the Company, and until such notice by such Person is revoked, any obligation of such Person to issue, make, maintain, fund or charge interest or fees with respect to any such Loan or Letter of Credit shall be suspended, and to the extent required by applicable law, cancelled. Upon receipt of such notice, the Loan Parties shall, (A) repay that Person's participation in the Loans or other applicable Obligations on the last day of the Interest Period for each Loan or other Obligation occurring after the Administrative Agent has notified the Company or, if earlier, the date specified by such Person in the notice delivered to the Administrative Agent (being no earlier than the last day of any applicable grace period permitted by applicable law), (B) to the extent applicable to such Issuing Lender, Cash Collateralize that portion of applicable L/C Obligations comprised of the aggregate undrawn amount of Letters of Credit to the extent not otherwise Cash Collateralized and (C) take all reasonable actions requested by such Person to mitigate or avoid such illegality.
SECTION 2.26Designated Borrowers. (a) Effective as of the date hereof ABM Aviation UK Limited (formerly known as Omni Serv Limited), a company incorporated and registered in England as a private company limited by shares, shall be a 'Designated Borrower' hereunder and may receive Revolving Loans for its account on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.
(b)The Company may at any time, upon not less than fifteen (15) Business Days' notice from the Company to the Administrative Agent (or such shorter period as may be agreed by the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion), request to designate any additional Subsidiary of the Company (an 'Applicant Borrower') as a Designated Borrower to receive Revolving Loans hereunder by delivering to the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly deliver counterparts thereof to each Revolving Lender) a duly executed notice and agreement in substantially the form of Exhibit K (a 'Designated Borrower Request and Assumption Agreement'). The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that prior to any Applicant Borrower becoming entitled to utilize the credit facilities provided for herein (i) such Applicant Borrower shall be reasonably acceptable to each of the Administrative Agent and the Revolving Lenders, (ii) the Administrative Agent and the Revolving Lenders shall have received all documentation and other information that the Administrative Agent or any such Revolving Lender has requested in order to comply with its obligations under applicable 'know your customer' and anti-money laundering rules and regulations and (iii) the Administrative Agent shall have received such supporting resolutions, incumbency certificates, opinions of counsel and other documents or information, in form, content and scope reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, as may be required by the Administrative Agent or the Majority in Interest of the Revolving Facilities in their sole discretion, and notes signed by such new Borrowers to the extent any Revolving Lenders so require. If the Administrative Agent and each Revolving Lender agrees that an Applicant Borrower shall be entitled to become a Designated Borrower and receive Revolving Loans hereunder, then promptly following receipt of all such requested resolutions, incumbency certificates, opinions of counsel and other documents or information, the Administrative Agent shall send a notice in substantially the form of Exhibit L (a 'Designated Borrower Notice') to the Company and the Revolving Lenders specifying the effective date upon which the Applicant Borrower shall constitute a Designated Borrower for purposes hereof, whereupon each of the Lenders agrees to permit such Designated Borrower to receive Revolving Loans hereunder, on the terms and conditions set forth herein, and each of the parties agrees that such Designated Borrower otherwise shall be a Borrower for all purposes of this Agreement; provided that no Borrowing Request or Application may be submitted by or on behalf of such Designated Borrower until the date five Business Days after such effective date.

Any notice, demand, consent, acknowledgement, direction, certification or other communication delivered to the Company in accordance with the terms of this Agreement shall be deemed to have been delivered to each Designated Borrower.
(e)The Company may from time to time, upon not less than fifteen (15) Business Days' notice from the Company to the Administrative Agent (or such shorter period as may be agreed by the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion), terminate a Designated Borrower's status as such, provided that there are no outstanding Loans payable by such Designated Borrower, or other amounts payable by such Designated Borrower on account of any Loans made to it, as of the effective date of such termination. The Administrative Agent will promptly notify the Lenders of any such termination of a Designated Borrower's status.
SECTION 2.27Designated Lenders.
(J)Each of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lenders, the Swingline Lender and each Lender at its option may make any Loan or Letter of Credit or otherwise perform its obligations hereunder through any Funding Office (each, a 'Designated Lender'); provided that any exercise of such option shall not affect the obligation of such Borrower to repay any Loan or Letter of Credit drawing in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

SECTION 5.05Payment of Taxes. Each of the Company and each Subsidiary will pay its Tax liabilities, before the same shall become delinquent or in default, except where (a)(i) the validity or amount thereof is being contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings and (ii) the Company or such Subsidiary has set aside on its books adequate reserves with respect thereto to the extent required by GAAP or (b) the failure to make payment would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.
SECTION 5.07Maintenance of Properties.

SECTION 5.07Insurance. Each of the Company and each Subsidiary will maintain, with financially sound and reputable insurance companies (including any Captive Insurance Company), as determined by the Company in good faith, insurance in such amounts (with no greater risk retention) and against such risks as are customarily maintained by companies engaged in the same or similar businesses operating in the same or similar locations. From and after the date that is 90 days after the Closing Date (or such later date as the Administrative Agent agrees to in writing), each such policy of liability or property insurance maintained by or on behalf of Loan Parties shall (a) in the case of each liability insurance policy (other than workers' compensation, director and officer liability, errors and omissions liability (to the extent endorsement of such policy is not permitted) or other policies in which such endorsements are not customary), name the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, as an additional insured thereunder, and (b) in the case of each property insurance policy, contain a customary lender's loss payable or mortgagee clause or endorsement that names the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, as the lender's loss payee or mortgagee thereunder. With respect to each Mortgaged Property that is located in an area determined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to have special flood hazards, the applicable Loan Party has obtained, and will maintain, with financially sound and reputable insurance companies, such flood insurance in form, substance and amount required under applicable law, including the Flood Insurance Regulations or as otherwise required by the Administrative Agent (but at a minimum in amounts and otherwise in compliance with Flood Insurance Regulations) and provide evidence in form and substance satisfactory to Administrative Agent of such flood insurance.

(c)Each of the Company and each Subsidiary will comply with all minimum funding requirements and all other material requirements of ERISA, if applicable, so as not to give rise to any liability thereunder, except to the extent a failure to do so would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.
(d)Each Loan Party whose jurisdiction of incorporation is in a member state of the European Union shall maintain its 'centre of main interests' (as that term is used in the Regulation) in its jurisdiction of incorporation.
SSECTION 5.10Use of Proceeds. The proceeds of the Initial Term Loans made on the Closing Date will be used, together with common stock of the Company, solely to pay Transaction Costs. The proceeds of the additional advance of the Initial Term Loan pursuant to the Fourth Amendment will be used (x) on the Fourth Amendment Effective Date, in the manner specified in the Fourth Amendment, and (y) on or after the Fourth Amendment Effective Date, to finance working capital and for other general corporate purposes of the Company and its Subsidiaries, including Permitted Acquisitions. The proceeds of the Incremental Term Loans will be used solely for the purpose or purposes set forth in the applicable Incremental Facility Amendment. The Letters of Credit and proceeds of Revolving Loans and Swingline Loans will be used by the Company and the other Borrowers for working capital and other general corporate purposes or for any other purpose not prohibited by this Agreement, including capital expenditures and the financing of Permitted Acquisitions and other Permitted Investments. No Borrower will request any Borrowing or Letter of Credit, and the Company shall not use and shall not permit its Subsidiaries or its or their respective directors, officers, employees and agents to use, the proceeds of any Borrowing or Letter of Credit (A) in furtherance of an offer, payment, promise to pay, or authorization of the payment or giving of money, or anything else of value, to any Person in violation of any Anti-Corruption Laws, (B) for the purpose of funding, financing or facilitating any activities, business or


transaction of or with any Sanctioned Person, or in any Sanctioned Country, to the extent such activities, business or transaction would be prohibited by Sanctions if conducted by a Person required to comply with Sanctions, or (C) in any manner that would result in the violation of any Sanctions applicable to any party hereto.
SSECTION 5.11Additional Subsidiaries. If any additional Subsidiary (other than an Excluded Subsidiary if the Equity Interests in such Excluded Subsidiary and any Indebtedness of such Excluded Subsidiary are, in each case, excluded from the Collateral and Guarantee Requirement) is formed or acquired or any existing Subsidiary ceases to be an Excluded Subsidiary after the Closing Date, then the Company will, as promptly as practicable and, in any event, within sixty (60) days (or such longer period as the Administrative Agent may, in its sole discretion, agree to in writing) after such Subsidiary is formed or acquired or ceases to be an Excluded Subsidiary, notify the Administrative Agent thereof and (a) with respect to any such Subsidiary (other than an Excluded Subsidiary), cause such Subsidiary to satisfy the Collateral and Guarantee Requirement, to the extent applicable and (b) cause each Loan Party to satisfy the Collateral and Guarantee Requirement with respect to any Equity Interest in or Indebtedness of such Subsidiary owned by such Loan Party. Notwithstanding the foregoing no Receivables Entity shall be required to satisfy the Collateral and Guarantee Requirement.
SSECTION 5.13Further Assurances. Each of the Company and each other Loan Party will execute any and all further documents, financing statements, agreements and instruments, and take all such further actions (including the filing and recording of financing statements, fixture filings, mortgages, deeds of trust and other documents), that may be required under any applicable law, or that the Administrative Agent may reasonably request, to cause the Collateral and Guarantee Requirement to be satisfied, all at the expense of the Loan Parties. The Company also agrees to provide to the Administrative Agent (i) from time to time upon request, evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent as to the perfection and priority of the Liens created or intended to be created by the Security Documents, (ii) promptly after reasonable request therefor, all documentation and other information reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent or any Lender that is required to satisfy applicable 'know your customer' and anti-money laundering rules and regulations, including, without limitation, the USA PATRIOT Act and the Prohibition on Money Laundering Law and (iii) to the extent any Loan Party qualifies as a 'legal entity customer' under the Beneficial Ownership Regulation, an updated Beneficial Ownership Certification promptly following any change in the information provided in the Beneficial Ownership Certification delivered to any Lender in relation to such Loan Party that would result in a change to the list of beneficial owners identified in such certification.
SSECTION 5.13After-Acquired Real Property. Within ninety (90) days after the acquisition of any Material Real Property by a Loan Party (or such later date as the Administrative Agent may agree in its sole discretion) such Loan Party shall deliver to the Administrative Agent (for distribution to the Lenders) a Mortgage on such Material Real Property and shall cause clause (e) of the Collateral and Guarantee Requirement to be satisfied with respect thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, none of the Loan Parties shall deliver an executed counterpart to any Mortgage for any real property prior to the date on which the Administrative Agent shall have notified the Company in writing that the Administrative Agent has completed flood insurance due diligence and flood insurance compliance with respect to such real property; provided that, such Loan Party shall not be in default under this Section 5.13 for failure to (i) deliver a Mortgage and/or (ii) cause clause (c) of the Collateral and Guarantee Requirement to be satisfied within such 90-day period if such failure is due to the lack of receipt of the aforementioned written notification from the Administrative Agent. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary, no Mortgage shall be executed and delivered by a Loan Party in accordance with the terms of this Section 5.13 unless and until each Lender has received at least twenty


(20) days prior notice thereof from the Administrative Agent, together with (at least twenty (20) days in advance of such execution and delivery) the documents described in subclauses (iii) and (iv) of clause (e) of the definition of 'Collateral and Guarantee Requirement'; provided that, the applicable Loan Party shall not be in default under this Section 5.13 for failure to deliver a Mortgage within such ninety (90) day period if such failure is due to the Administrative Agent's failure to deliver twenty (20) days' prior notice to each Lender and such accompanying documents as required hereunder.
SSECTION 5.14Environmental Compliance. (a) Each of the Company and each Subsidiary will (i) comply with all Environmental Laws, and obtain, comply with and maintain any and all Environmental Permits necessary for its operations as conducted; and (ii) take all reasonable efforts to ensure that all of its tenants, subtenants, contractors, subcontractors, and invitees comply with all Environmental Laws, and obtain, comply with and maintain any and all Environmental Permits, applicable to them; provided that, for purposes of this Section 5.14(a), noncompliance with any of the foregoing shall be deemed not to constitute a breach of this covenant so long as, with respect to any such noncompliance, the Company or its relevant Subsidiary is undertaking all reasonable efforts to achieve compliance (or to ensure that the relevant tenant, subtenant, contractor, subcontractor or invitee is achieving compliance), or (y) to the extent such noncompliance, individually or in the aggregate, would not reasonably be expected to give rise to a Material Adverse Effect.
(b)Without in any way limiting the Company and each Subsidiary's obligations under Section 5.14(a), each of the Company and each Subsidiary will promptly comply with all orders and directives of all Governmental Authorities regarding Environmental Laws, other than such orders and directives (i) that are being disputed in good faith in the applicable manner and forum, or (ii) that are not being complied with, provided that the pendency of such disputes and the noncompliance with such orders and directives would not reasonably be expected, individually or in the aggregate, to give rise to a Material Adverse Effect.
SECTION 5.15Designation of Subsidiaries. The Company may at any time designate any Subsidiary as an Unrestricted Subsidiary or any Unrestricted Subsidiary as a Subsidiary by delivering to the Administrative Agent a certificate of an Authorized Officer of the Company specifying such designation and certifying that the conditions to such designation set forth in this Section 5.15 are satisfied; provided that:

(iii)in the case of a designation of a Subsidiary as an Unrestricted Subsidiary, each Subsidiary of such Subsidiary has been, or concurrently therewith will be, designated as an Unrestricted Subsidiary in accordance with this Section 5.15.
The designation of any Subsidiary as an Unrestricted Subsidiary shall constitute an Investment by the Company in such Subsidiary on the date of designation in an amount equal to the fair market value of the Company's Investment therein (as determined reasonably and in good faith by a Financial Officer of the Company). The designation of any Unrestricted Subsidiary as a Subsidiary shall constitute the incurrence


at the time of designation of any Investment, Indebtedness or Liens of such Subsidiary existing at such time.
Notwithstanding any of the definitions or covenants contained in this Agreement to the contrary, the Borrowers will not, and will not permit any Restricted Subsidiary to, consummate any transaction that results in the transfer (whether by way of any Restricted Payment, Investment, or any sale, conveyance, transfer, or other Disposition, or a designation of a Subsidiary as an Unrestricted Subsidiary or of an Unrestricted Subsidiary as a Subsidiary, and whether in a single transaction or a series of related transactions) of material Intellectual Property from any Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary to any Unrestricted Subsidiary.

ARTICLE VIII

THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT
SECTION 8.01Appointment and Authority.
(a)Each of the Lenders and each Issuing Lender hereby irrevocably appoints, designates and authorizes Bank of America to act on its behalf as the Administrative Agent hereunder and under the other Loan Documents and authorizes the Administrative Agent to take such actions on its behalf and to exercise such powers as are delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms hereof or thereof, together with such actions and powers as are reasonably


incidental thereto. The provisions of this Article are solely for the benefit of the Administrative Agent, the Lenders and the Issuing Lenders, and neither the Company nor any other Loan Party shall have rights as a third party beneficiary of any of such provisions. It is understood and agreed that the use of the term 'agent' herein or in any other Loan Documents (or any other similar term) with reference to the Administrative Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under agency doctrine of any applicable law. Instead such term is used as a matter of market custom, and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between contracting parties. In furtherance of the foregoing, and not in limitation, each of the Lenders authorizes the Administrative Agent to enter into one or more intercreditor agreements acceptable to the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion with parties to any Permitted Receivables Facility. Such intercreditor agreements may provide for, among other things, (i) the Administrative Agent's and the Lenders' forbearance of, and other limitations on, any exercise of remedies in respect of any equity interests in any Receivables Entity and/or any notes issued by any Receivables Entity to any Receivables Seller in connection with any Permitted Receivables Facility, in any case, that have been pledged to secure the Obligations and/or (ii) disclaimers of interests on, and releases of security interests in, any Receivables and Permitted Receivables Facility Assets.
(b)The Administrative Agent shall also act as the 'collateral agent' under the Loan Documents, and each of the Lenders and each of the Issuing Lenders hereby irrevocably appoints and authorizes the Administrative Agent to act as the agent of such Lender and such Issuing Lender for purposes of acquiring, holding and enforcing any and all Liens on Collateral granted by any of the Loan Parties to secure any of the Obligations, together with such powers and discretion as are reasonably incidental thereto. In this connection, the Administrative Agent, as 'collateral agent' and any co-agents, sub-agents and attorneys-in-fact appointed by the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 8.05 for purposes of holding or enforcing any Lien on the Collateral (or any portion thereof) granted under the Collateral Documents, or for exercising any rights and remedies thereunder at the direction of the Administrative Agent, shall be entitled to the benefits of all provisions of this Article VIII (including Section 8.03(c)), as though such co-agents, sub-agents and attorneys-in-fact were the 'collateral agent' under the Loan Documents as if set forth in full herein with respect thereto.
SECTION 8.02Rights as a Lender. The Person serving as the Administrative Agent hereunder shall have the same rights and powers in its capacity as a Lender as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent and the term 'Lender' or 'Lenders' shall, unless otherwise expressly indicated or unless the context otherwise requires, include the Person serving as the Administrative Agent hereunder in its individual capacity. Such Person and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, own securities of, act as the financial advisor or in any other advisory capacity for and generally engage in any kind of business with the Borrowers or any Subsidiary or other Affiliate thereof as if such Person were not the Administrative Agent hereunder and without any duty to account therefor to the Lenders or to provide notice to or obtain the consent of the Lenders with respect thereto.
SECTION 8.03Exculpatory Provisions. The Administrative Agent shall not have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents, and its duties hereunder shall be administrative in nature. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent:


(a)shall not be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether a Default has occurred and is continuing;
(b)shall not have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated hereby or by the other Loan Documents that the Administrative Agent is required to exercise as directed in writing by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be expressly provided for herein or in the other Loan Documents), provided that the Administrative Agent shall not be required to take any action that, in its opinion or the opinion of its counsel, may expose the Administrative Agent to liability or that is contrary to any Loan Document or applicable law, including for the avoidance of doubt any action that may be in violation of the automatic stay under any Debtor Relief Law or that may effect a forfeiture, modification or termination of property of a Defaulting Lender in violation of any Debtor Relief Law; and
(c)shall not, except as expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents, have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to any of the Borrowers or any of their respective Affiliates that is communicated to or obtained by the Person serving as the Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity.
Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its Related Parties shall be liable for any action taken or not taken by it (i) with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary, or as the Administrative Agent shall believe in good faith shall be necessary) or (ii) in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment. The Administrative Agent shall be deemed not to have knowledge of any Default unless and until notice describing such Default is given in writing to the Administrative Agent by the Company, a Lender or an Issuing Lender.
Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its Related Parties shall be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain or inquire into (i) any statement, warranty or representation made in or in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document, (ii) the contents of any certificate, report or other document delivered hereunder or thereunder or in connection herewith or therewith, (iii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants, agreements or other terms or conditions set forth herein or therein or the occurrence of any Default, (iv) the validity, enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any other agreement, instrument or document, (v) the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Article IV or elsewhere herein, other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to the Administrative Agent, (vi) the creation, perfection or priority of any Lien purported to be created by the Collateral Documents or (vii) the value or sufficiency of the Collateral.
Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its Related Parties shall be responsible or have any liability for, or have any duty to ascertain, inquire into, monitor or enforce, compliance with the provisions of this Agreement relating to Disqualified Institutions. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent shall not (i) be obligated to ascertain, monitor or inquire as to whether any Lender or Participant or prospective Lender or Participant is a Disqualified Institution or (ii) have any liability with respect to or arising out of any assignment or participation of Loans, or disclosure of confidential information, to any Disqualified Institution.


SECTION 8.05Reliance by Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely upon, and shall not incur any liability for relying upon, any notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, document or other writing (including any electronic message, Internet or intranet website posting or other distribution) believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed, sent or otherwise authenticated by the proper Person. The Administrative Agent also may rely upon any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to have been made by the proper Person, and shall not incur any liability for relying thereon. In determining compliance with any condition hereunder to the making of a Loan, or the issuance, extension, renewal or increase of a Letter of Credit, that by its terms must be fulfilled to the satisfaction of a Lender or an Issuing Lender, the Administrative Agent may presume that such condition is satisfactory to such Lender or such Issuing Lender unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice to the contrary from such Lender or such Issuing Lender prior to the making of such Loan or the issuance of such Letter of Credit. The Administrative Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be counsel for the Company), independent accountants and other experts selected by it, and shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it in accordance with the advice of any such counsel, accountants or experts.
SECTION 8.05Delegation of Duties. The Administrative Agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers hereunder or under any other Loan Document by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or through their respective Related Parties. The exculpatory provisions of this Article shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Related Parties of the Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent, and shall apply to their respective activities in connection with the syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein as well as activities as Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any sub-agents except to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction determines in a final and non-appealable judgment that the Administrative Agent acted with gross negligence or willful misconduct in the selection of such sub-agents. For purposes of determining compliance with the conditions specified in Section 4.01, each Lender that has signed this Agreement shall be deemed to have consented to, approved or accepted or to be satisfied with, each document or other matter required thereunder to be consented to or approved by or acceptable or satisfactory to a Lender unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from such Lender prior to the proposed Closing Date specifying its objections.
SECTION 8.06Resignation of Administrative Agent.
(a)The Administrative Agent may at any time give notice of its resignation to the Lenders, the Issuing Lenders and the Company. Upon receipt of any such notice of resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right, in consultation with the Company, to appoint a successor, which shall be a bank with an office in the United States, or an Affiliate of any such bank with an office in the United States. If no such successor shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after the retiring Administrative Agent gives notice of its resignation (or such earlier day as shall be agreed by the Required Lenders) (the 'Resignation Effective Date'), then the retiring Administrative Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) on behalf of the Lenders and the Issuing Lenders, appoint a successor Administrative Agent meeting the qualifications set forth above, provided that in no event shall any such successor Administrative Agent be a Defaulting Lender. Whether or not a successor has been appointed, such resignation shall become effective in accordance with such notice on the Resignation Effective Date.


(b)If the Person serving as Administrative Agent is a Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (d) of the definition thereof, the Required Lenders may, to the extent permitted by applicable law, by notice in writing to the Company and such Person remove such Person as Administrative Agent and, in consultation with the Company, appoint a successor. If no such successor shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days (or such earlier day as shall be agreed by the Required Lenders) (the 'Removal Effective Date'), then such removal shall nonetheless become effective in accordance with such notice on the Removal Effective Date.
(c)With effect from the Resignation Effective Date or the Removal Effective Date (as applicable) (1) the retiring or removed Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder and under the other Loan Documents (except that in the case of any collateral security held by the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Lenders or the Issuing Lenders under any of the Loan Documents, the retiring or removed Administrative Agent shall continue to hold such collateral security until such time as a successor Administrative Agent is appointed) and (2) except for any indemnity payments or other amounts then owed to the retiring or removed Administrative Agent, all payments, communications and determinations provided to be made by, to or through the Administrative Agent shall instead be made by or to each Lender and each Issuing Lender directly, until such time, if any, as the Required Lenders appoint a successor Administrative Agent as provided for above. Upon the acceptance of a successor's appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all of the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring (or removed) Administrative Agent (other than as provided in Section 3.01(g) and other than any rights to indemnity payments or other amounts owed to the retiring or removed Administrative Agent as of the Resignation Effective Date or the Removal Effective Date, as applicable), and the retiring or removed Administrative Agent shall be discharged from all of its duties and obligations hereunder or under the other Loan Documents (if not already discharged therefrom as provided above in this Section) . The fees payable by the Company to a successor Administrative Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between the Company and such successor. After the retiring or removed Administrative Agent's resignation or removal hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, the provisions of this Article and Section 9.04 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring or removed Administrative Agent, its sub agents and their respective Related Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them (i) while the retiring or removed Administrative Agent was acting as Administrative Agent and (ii) after such resignation or removal for as long as any of them continues to act in any capacity hereunder or under the other Loan Documents, including (a) acting as collateral agent or otherwise holding any collateral security on behalf of any of the Lenders and (b) in respect of any actions taken in connection with transferring the agency to any successor Administrative Agent.
(d)Any resignation by Bank of America as Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section shall also constitute its resignation as an Issuing Lender and Swingline Lender.

If Bank of America resigns as Swingline Lender, it shall retain all the rights of the Swingline Lender provided for hereunder with respect to Swingline Loans made by it and outstanding as of the effective date of such resignation,


including the right to require the Lenders to make Base Rate Loans or fund risk participations in outstanding Swingline Loans pursuant to Section 2.04. Upon the appointment by the Company of a successor Issuing Lender or Swingline Lender hereunder (which successor shall in all cases be a Lender other than a Defaulting Lender), (a) such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all of the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Issuing Lender or Swingline Lender, as applicable, (b) the retiring Issuing Lender and Swingline Lender shall be discharged from all of their respective duties and obligations hereunder or under the other Loan Documents, and (c) the successor Issuing Lender shall issue letters of credit in substitution for the Letters of Credit, if any, outstanding at the time of such succession or make other arrangements satisfactory to Bank of America to effectively assume the obligations of Bank of America with respect to such Letters of Credit.

SECTION 8.07Non-Reliance on Administrative Agent and Other Lenders. Each Lender and each Issuing Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender or any of their Related Parties and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement. Each Lender and the each Issuing Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender or any of their Related Parties and based on such documents and information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder.
SECTION 8.08No Other Duties, Etc. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, none of the Bookrunners, Arrangers or other agents listed on the cover page hereof shall have any powers, duties or responsibilities under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, except in its capacity, as applicable, as the Administrative Agent, a Lender or an Issuing Lender hereunder.
SECTION 8.09Administrative Agent May File Proofs of Claim; Credit Bidding. In case of the pendency of any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law or any other judicial proceeding relative to any Loan Party, the Administrative Agent (irrespective of whether the principal of any Loan or L/C Obligation shall then be due and payable as herein expressed or by declaration or otherwise and irrespective of whether the Administrative Agent shall have made any demand on any Borrower) shall be entitled and empowered, by intervention in such proceeding or otherwise:
(a)to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of the principal and interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Loans, L/C Obligations and all other Obligations that are owing and unpaid and to file such other documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Lenders, the Issuing Lenders and the Administrative Agent (including any claim for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Lenders, the Issuing Lenders and the Administrative Agent and their respective agents and counsel and all other amounts due the Lenders, the Issuing Lenders and the Administrative Agent under Sections 2.06(c) and (i), 2.13 and 9.03) allowed in such judicial proceeding; and to collect and receive any monies or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same;


(b)and any custodian, receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator, sequestrator or other similar official in any such judicial proceeding is hereby authorized by each Lender and each Issuing Lender to make such payments to the Administrative Agent and, in the event that the Administrative Agent shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Lenders and the Issuing Lenders, to pay to the Administrative Agent any amount due for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Administrative Agent and its agents and counsel, and any other amounts due the Administrative Agent under Sections 2.13 and 9.03.
Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to authorize the Administrative Agent to authorize or consent to or accept or adopt on behalf of any Lender or any Issuing Lender any plan of reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition affecting the Obligations or the rights of any Lender or any Issuing Lender to authorize the Administrative Agent to vote in respect of the claim of any Lender or any Issuing Lender in any such proceeding.
The Secured Parties hereby irrevocably authorize the Administrative Agent, at the direction of the Required Lenders, to credit bid all or any portion of the Obligations (including accepting some or all of the Collateral in satisfaction of some or all of the Obligations pursuant to a deed in lieu of foreclosure or otherwise) and in such manner purchase (either directly or through one or more acquisition vehicles) all or any portion of the Collateral (a) at any sale thereof conducted under the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code of the United States, including under Sections 363, 1123 or 1129 of the Bankruptcy Code, or any similar Requirement of Laws in any other jurisdictions to which a Loan Party is subject, (b) at any other sale or foreclosure or acceptance of collateral in lieu of debt conducted by (or with the consent or at the direction of) the Administrative Agent (whether by judicial action or otherwise) in accordance with any applicable Requirement of Law. In connection with any such credit bid and purchase, the Obligations owed to the Secured Parties shall be entitled to be, and shall be, credit bid on a ratable basis (with Obligations with respect to contingent or unliquidated claims receiving contingent interests in the acquired assets on a ratable basis that would vest upon the liquidation of such claims in an amount proportional to the liquidated portion of the contingent claim amount used in allocating the contingent interests) in the asset or assets so purchased (or in the Equity Interests or debt instruments of the acquisition vehicle or vehicles that are used to consummate such purchase). In connection with any such bid (i) the Administrative Agent shall be authorized to form one or more acquisition vehicles to make a bid, (ii) to adopt documents providing for the governance of the acquisition vehicle or vehicles (provided that any actions by the Administrative Agent with respect to such acquisition vehicle or vehicles, including any disposition of the assets or Equity Interests thereof shall be governed, directly or indirectly, by the vote of the Required Lenders, irrespective of the termination of this Agreement and without giving effect to the limitations on actions by the Required Lenders contained in Section 9.02(b)(ii)), (iii) the Administrative Agent shall be authorized to assign the relevant Obligations to any such acquisition vehicle pro rata by the Lenders, as a result of which each of the Lenders shall be deemed to have received a pro rata portion of any Equity Interests and/or debt instruments issued by such an acquisition vehicle on account of the assignment of the Obligations to be credit bid, all without the need for any Secured Party or acquisition vehicle to take any further action, and (iv) to the extent that Obligations that are assigned to an acquisition vehicle are not used to acquire Collateral for any reason (as a result of another bid being higher or better, because the amount of Obligations assigned to the acquisition vehicle exceeds the amount of debt credit bid by the acquisition vehicle or otherwise), such Obligations shall automatically be reassigned to the Lenders pro rata and the Equity Interests and/or debt instruments issued by any acquisition vehicle on account of the Obligations that had been assigned to the acquisition vehicle shall automatically be cancelled, without the need for any Secured Party or any acquisition vehicle to take any further action.


SECTION 8.10Collateral and Guaranty Matters. Without limiting the provisions of Section 8.09 and Section 9.14, the Lenders and the Issuing Lenders irrevocably authorize the Administrative Agent, at its option and in its discretion,
(a)to release any Lien on any property granted to or held by the Administrative Agent under any Loan Document (i) upon termination of the Aggregate Commitments and payment in full of all Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations) and the expiration or termination of all Letters of Credit (other than Letters of Credit as to which other arrangements satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and the applicable Issuing Lender shall have been made), (ii) that is sold or otherwise disposed of or to be sold or otherwise disposed of as part of or in connection with any sale or other disposition permitted hereunder or under any other Loan Document, or (iii) subject to Section 9.02, if approved, authorized or ratified in writing by the Required Lenders;
(b)to subordinate or release any Lien on any property granted to or held by the Administrative Agent under any Loan Document to the holder of any Lien on such property that is permitted by Section 6.02 (e), (p) or (r); and
(c)to release any Subsidiary Guarantor from its obligations under the Guarantee Agreement if such Person ceases to be a Subsidiary as a result of a transaction permitted under the Loan Documents.
Upon request by the Administrative Agent at any time, the Required Lenders will confirm in writing the Administrative Agent's authority to release or subordinate its interest in particular types or items of property, or to release any Subsidiary Guarantor from its obligations under the Guarantee Agreement pursuant to this Section 8.10.
The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for or have a duty to ascertain or inquire into any representation or warranty regarding the existence, value or collectability of the Collateral, the existence, priority or perfection of the Administrative Agent's Lien thereon, or any certificate prepared by any Loan Party in connection therewith, nor shall the Administrative Agent be responsible or liable to the Lenders for any failure to monitor or maintain any portion of the Collateral.
SECTION 8.11Secured Cash Management Agreements and Secured Hedge Agreements. Except as otherwise expressly set forth herein, no provider of Secured Cash Management Obligations or Secured Hedging Obligations that obtains the benefit of the provisions of the Guarantee Agreement or any Collateral by virtue of the provisions hereof or any Loan Document shall have any right to notice of any action or to consent to, direct or object to any action hereunder or under any other Loan Document or otherwise in respect of the Collateral (including the release or impairment of any Collateral) (or to notice of or to consent to any amendment, waiver or modification of the provisions hereof or of the Guarantee Agreement or any Collateral) other than in its capacity as a Lender and, in such case, only to the extent expressly provided in the Loan Documents. The Administrative Agent shall not be required to verify the payment of, or that other satisfactory arrangements have been made with respect to, Secured Obligations arising under Secured Cash Management Agreements and Secured Hedge Agreements in the case of termination of the Aggregate Commitments and payment in full of all Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations) and the expiration or termination of all Letters of Credit (other than Letters of Credit as to which other arrangements satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and the applicable Issuing Lender shall have been made).


SECTION 8.12Recovery of Erroneous Payments. Without limitation of any other provision in this Agreement, if at any time the Administrative Agent makes a payment hereunder in error to any other Credit Party, whether or not in respect of an Obligation due and owing by any Borrower at such time, where such payment is a Rescindable Amount, then in any such event, each Credit Party receiving a Rescindable Amount severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the Rescindable Amount received by such Credit Party in immediately available funds in the currency so received, with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such Rescindable Amount is received by it to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at the greater of the Federal Funds Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation. Each Credit Party irrevocably waives any and all defenses, including any 'discharge for value' (under which a creditor might otherwise claim a right to retain funds mistakenly paid by a third party in respect of a debt owed by another) or similar defense to its obligation to return any Rescindable Amount. The Administrative Agent shall inform each Credit Party promptly upon determining that any payment made to such Credit Party comprised, in whole or in part, a Rescindable Amount.

SECTION 9.02Waivers; Amendments. No failure or delay by the Administrative Agent or any Lender in exercising any right or power hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such a right or power, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power. The rights and remedies of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies that they would otherwise have. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or consent to any departure by any Loan Party therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by paragraph (b) of this Section 9.02, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given.

adversely affected by such amendment, waiver or other modification, (2) this Agreement may be amended to provide for Incremental Term Facilities, Incremental Revolving Commitments, Refinancing Commitments and Refinancing Loans and Permitted Amendments in connection with Loan Modification Offers as provided in Sections 2.22, 2.23 and 2.24, in each case without any additional consents and (3) this Agreement may be amended as contemplated by and in accordance with Sections 2.14(k), 2.15(b) and 2.15(c), in each case without any additional consents.
(c)In connection with any proposed amendment, modification, waiver or termination (a 'Proposed Change') requiring the consent of all Lenders or all affected Lenders, if the consent of the Required Lenders (and, to the extent any Proposed Change requires the consent of Lenders holding Loans of any Class pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section 9.02, the consent of a Majority in Interest of the outstanding Loans and unused Commitments of such Class) to such Proposed Change is obtained, but the consent to such Proposed Change of other Lenders whose consent is required is not obtained (any such Lender whose consent is not obtained as described in paragraph (b) of this Section 9.02 being referred to as a 'Non-Consenting Lender'), then, so long as the Lender that is acting as Administrative Agent is not a Non-Consenting Lender, the Company may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Non-Consenting Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Non-Consenting Lender to assign and delegate (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 9.04), all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided that (i) the Company shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, to the extent required by Section 9.04, which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld or delayed, (ii) such Non-Consenting Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder from the assignee or the Company, (iii) the Company or such assignee shall have paid to the Administrative Agent the processing and recordation fee specified in Section 9.04(b)(ii), (iv) such assignment does not conflict with applicable law and (v) the assignee shall have given its consent to such Proposed Change. In connection with any such replacement, if any such Non-Consenting Lender does not execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent a duly executed Assignment and Assumption reflecting such replacement within five (5) Business Days of the date on which the assignee Lender executes and delivers such Assignment and Assumption to such Non-Consenting Lender, then such Non-Consenting Lender shall be deemed to have executed and delivered such Assignment and Assumption without any action on the part of the Non-Consenting Lender; provided that such Non-Consenting Lender shall be deemed to have executed and delivered such Assignment and Assumption only to the extent such Non-Consenting Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder from the assignee or the Company.
(d)Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Administrative Agent may, without the consent of any Secured Party, consent to a departure by any Loan Party from any covenant of such Loan Party set forth in this Agreement, the Guarantee Agreement, the Collateral Agreements or any other Security Document to the extent that such departure is consistent with the authority of the Administrative Agent set forth in the definition of the term 'Collateral and Guarantee Requirement.'


(e)The Administrative Agent may, but shall have no obligation to, with the concurrence of any Lender, execute amendments, waivers or other modifications on behalf of such Lender. Any amendment, waiver or other modification effected in accordance with this Section 9.02 shall be binding upon each Person that is at the time thereof a Lender and each Person that subsequently becomes a Lender.
SECTION 9.03Expenses; Indemnity; Damage Waiver. The Company shall pay (i) all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent, any Arranger and their respective Affiliates without duplication, including the reasonable and documented fees, charges and disbursements of one primary counsel, one counsel to the Administrative Agent, and if reasonably necessary, one firm of local counsel in each jurisdiction as the Administrative Agent shall deem advisable in connection with the creation and perfection of the security interests in the Collateral provided under the Loan Documents (and such additional counsels otherwise retained with the Company's consent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned)), in connection with the structuring, arrangement and syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein and any credit or similar facility refinancing or replacing, in whole or in part, any of the credit facilities provided for herein, as well as the preparation, negotiation, execution, delivery and administration of this Agreement, the other Loan Documents and any amendments, modifications and waivers of the provisions hereof or thereof (whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby shall be consummated) and (ii) all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent, any Arranger, any Issuing Lender, the Swingline Lender or any Lender and their respective Affiliates, including the reasonable and documented fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for any of the foregoing, in connection with the enforcement or protection of its rights in connection with the Loan Documents, including its rights under this Section 9.03, or in connection with the Loans made hereunder, including all such out-of-pocket expenses incurred during any workout, restructuring or negotiations in respect of such Loans; provided that the fees, charges and disbursements of counsel required to be paid by the Company pursuant to this clause (ii) shall be limited to (A) one counsel to the Administrative Agent, (B) one counsel for the Lenders (taken together as a single group or client), (C) if reasonably necessary, one local counsel in jurisdictions material to the interests of the Lenders taken as a whole (which may include a single special counsel acting in multiple jurisdictions), (D) additional counsel retained with the Company's prior written consent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned) and (E) if representation of the Administrative Agent and/or all Lenders in such matter by a single counsel would be inappropriate based on the advice of legal counsel due to the existence of an actual or potential conflict of interest and such party informs the Company of such conflict prior to retaining additional counsel, one additional counsel for each party subject to such conflict.
(b)The Company shall indemnify the Administrative Agent (and any sub-agent thereof), the Syndication Agent, each Arranger, each Issuing Lender, the Swingline Lender and each Lender, and each Related Party of any of the foregoing Persons and permitted successors and assigns of any of the foregoing Persons, without duplication (each such Person being called an 'Indemnitee'), against, and hold each Indemnitee harmless from, any and all losses, claims, damages, penalties, liabilities and related expenses, including reasonable and documented fees, charges and disbursements of counsel (limited to reasonable fees, disbursements and other charges of one counsel for the Administrative Agent, one counsel for all other Indemnitees, taken as a whole, and, if reasonably necessary, one firm of local counsel in each jurisdiction (which may include a single special counsel acting in multiple jurisdictions) material to the interests of all such Indemnitees, taken as a whole (and, in the case of an actual or perceived conflict of interest, where an Indemnitee affected by such conflict informs the Company of such conflict and thereafter retains its own counsel, of another firm of counsel for such affected Indemnitee and, if


necessary, one firm of local counsel in each jurisdiction (which may include a single special counsel acting in multiple jurisdictions) material to the interests of such affected Indemnitee) and other reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses, incurred by or asserted against any Indemnitee arising out of, in connection with or as a result of (i) the structuring, arrangement and syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein, the preparation, execution, delivery, operation and administration of this Agreement, the other Loan Documents or any other agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby (including, without limitation, such Indemnitee's reliance on any Communication executed using an Electronic Signature, or in the form of an Electronic Record), the performance by the parties to this Agreement or the other Loan Documents of their respective obligations hereunder or thereunder or the consummation of the Transactions or any other transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, (ii) any Loan or Letters of Credit (including any refusal by an Issuing Lender to honor a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit if the documents presented in connection with such demand do not strictly comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit) or the use of the proceeds therefrom, (iii) any actual or alleged presence or Release of Hazardous Materials on or from any Mortgaged Property or any other property owned, leased or operated by the Company or any Subsidiary or any Environmental Liability related in any way to the Company or any Subsidiary or (iv) any actual or prospective claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, whether based on contract, tort or any other theory and whether initiated against or by any party to this Agreement or any other Loan Document, any Affiliate of any of the foregoing or any third party (and regardless of whether any Indemnitee is a party thereto); provided that the foregoing indemnity shall not, as to any Indemnitee, apply to any losses, claims, damages, penalties, liabilities or related expenses to the extent they (A) are found in a final and non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from the willful misconduct, bad faith or gross negligence of such Indemnitee or any of its controlled Affiliates or any of the officers, directors, employees, agents, advisors or other representatives of any of the foregoing, in each case who are involved in the Transactions, (B) result from a material breach of such Indemnitee's or its controlled Affiliate's or any officers, directors, employees, agents, advisors or other representatives of any of the foregoing's obligations under this Agreement or any other Loan Document if the Company or such Subsidiary has obtained a final and non-appealable judgment in the Company's or its Subsidiary's favor on such claim as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction, or (C) result from a proceeding that does not involve an act or omission by the Company or any of its Affiliates and that is solely among Indemnitees (other than a proceeding that is brought against an Indemnitee in its capacity as or in fulfilling its roles as an agent or arranger hereunder or any similar role with respect to the Indebtedness incurred or to be incurred hereunder), unless such proceeding arises from the gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee. This paragraph shall not apply with respect to Taxes other than any Taxes that represent losses, claims or damages arising from any non-Tax claim.
(c)To the extent that the Company fails to pay any amount required to be paid by it under paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section 9.03 to the Administrative Agent (or any sub-agent thereof) or an Issuing Lender or any Related Party of any of the foregoing (and without limiting their obligation to do so), each Lender severally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent (or any such sub-agent) or the applicable Issuing Lender or such Related Party, as applicable, such portion of the unpaid amount equal to such Lender's Applicable Percentage (determined as of the time that the applicable unreimbursed expense or indemnity payment is sought) of such unpaid amount; provided that the unreimbursed expense or indemnified loss, claim, damage, liability or related expense, as applicable, was incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent (or such sub-agent) or applicable Issuing Lender or against any Related Party of any of the foregoing


acting for the Administrative Agent (or any such sub-agent) or such Issuing Lender, as the case may be, in connection with such capacity.
(d)To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, (i) the Company shall not assert, or permit any of its Affiliates or Related Parties to assert, and each hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee for any damages arising from the use by others of information or other materials obtained through telecommunications, electronic or other information transmission systems (including the Internet), except to the extent that such damages have resulted from the willful misconduct, bad faith or gross negligence of, or a material breach of the obligations under this Agreement or any other Loan Document by, such Indemnitee or any of such Indemnitee's controlled Affiliates or any of its or their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, advisors, controlling persons or other representatives (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision) and (ii) no party hereto shall assert, or permit any of its Affiliates or Related Parties to assert, and each party hereto hereby waives, any claim for damages based on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, the Transactions, any Loan or the use of the proceeds thereof; provided that, nothing in this paragraph (d) shall relieve any Loan Party of any obligation it may have to indemnify an Indemnitee against special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages asserted against such Indemnitee by a third party.
(e)All amounts due under this Section 9.03 shall be payable within 30 Business Days after written demand therefor (or such later time as the party making such demand provides in such notice).
SECTION 9.04Successors and Assigns. The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby (including any Affiliate of any Issuing Lender that issues any Letter of Credit), except that (i) no Borrower may assign, delegate or otherwise transfer any of its respective rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent and each Lender (and any attempted assignment, delegation or transfer by any Borrower without such consent shall be null and void) and (ii) no Lender may assign, delegate or otherwise transfer its rights or obligations hereunder except in accordance with this Section 9.04. Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, shall be construed to confer upon any Person (other than the parties hereto, their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, Participants (to the extent provided in paragraph (c) of this Section 9.04), any Arranger and, to the extent expressly contemplated hereby, the subagents of the Administrative Agent and the Related Parties of any of the Administrative Agent, any Arranger and any Lender) any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or by reason of this Agreement.
(b) Subject to the conditions set forth in paragraph (b)(ii) below, any Lender may assign and delegate to one or more Eligible Assignees after the funding of the initial extensions of credit hereunder on the Closing Date all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment and the Loans at the time owing to it) with the prior written consent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) of:
(A)the Company; provided that no consent of the Company shall be required (1) if an Event of Default under clause (a), (b), (h) or (i) of Article VII has occurred and is continuing, (2) in the case of Term Loans, for an assignment and


delegation to a Term Lender, an Affiliate of a Term Lender or an Approved Fund and (3) in the case of Revolving Commitments and/or Revolving Loans, for an assignment and delegation to a Revolving Lender, an Affiliate of a Revolving Lender or an Approved Fund; provided, further, that the Company shall be deemed to have consented to any such assignment and delegation of Term Loans unless it shall object thereto by written notice to the Administrative Agent within ten (10) Business Days after having received notice thereof;
(B)the Administrative Agent; provided that no consent of the Administrative Agent shall be required for an assignment and delegation of (x) any Term Loan to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund and (y) any Revolving Commitment to a Revolving Lender, an Affiliate of a Revolving Lender or an Approved Fund with respect to a Revolving Lender; and
(C)each Issuing Lender and the Swingline Lender; provided that no consent of each Issuing Lender and the Swingline Lender shall be required for an assignment and delegation of any Term Loan.
(ii)Assignments shall be subject to the following additional conditions:
(Q)except in the case of an assignment and delegation to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund or an assignment and delegation of the entire remaining amount of the assigning Lender's Commitment or Loans of any Class, the amount of the Commitment or Loans of the assigning Lender subject to each such assignment and delegation (determined as of the trade date specified in the Assignment and Assumption with respect to such assignment and delegation or, if no trade date is so specified, as of the date the Assignment and Assumption with respect to such assignment and delegation is delivered to the Administrative Agent) shall not be less than (y) $1,000,000 in the case of the Initial Term Facility or any Incremental Term Facility and (z) $5,000,000 in the case of the Revolving Facilities unless the Company and the Administrative Agent otherwise consent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed); provided that no such consent of the Company shall be required if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing;
(R)each partial assignment and delegation shall be made as an assignment and delegation of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement; provided that this clause (B) shall not (x) apply to the Swingline Lender's rights and obligations in respect of Swingline Loans or (y) be construed to prohibit the assignment and delegation of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender's rights and obligations in respect of one Class of Commitments or Loans;
(S)the parties to each assignment and delegation shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent an Assignment and Assumption, together with a processing and recordation fee of $3,500, provided that (1) the Administrative Agent may, in its sole discretion, elect to waive such processing and recordation fee in the case of any assignment and (2) with respect to any assignment and delegation pursuant to Section 2.20(b) or 9.02(c), the parties hereto agree that such assignment and delegation may be effected pursuant to an Assignment and


Assumption executed by the Company, the Administrative Agent and the assignee and that the Lender required to make such assignment and delegation need not be a party thereto; and
(T)the assignee, if it shall not be a Lender (or, for purposes of Section (D)(1), if the assignment and delegation relates to a Loan Party incorporated in the United Kingdom, if the assignee is not already a Lender to a Loan Party incorporated in the United Kingdom), shall (1) deliver to the Administrative Agent and to the Company any tax forms and information required by Section 2.18(g) and (2) to the Administrative Agent an Administrative Questionnaire in which the assignee designates one or more credit contacts to whom all syndicate-level information (which may contain MNPI) will be made available and who may receive such information in accordance with the assignee's compliance procedures and applicable law, including Federal, State and foreign securities laws.
(U)if, following any assignment and delegation, and as a result of circumstances existing at the date of that assignment and delegation, a Loan Party incorporated in the United Kingdom would be required to make payment to the assignee under Section 2.18(a) by reason of a U.K. Tax Deduction, then the assignee shall only be entitled to receive payment under that Section to the same extent as the original Lender would have been if the assignment and delegation had not occurred.
(iii)Subject to acceptance and recording thereof pursuant to paragraph (b)(v) of this Section 9.04, from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Assumption the assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent of the interest assigned and delegated by such Assignment and Assumption, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement, and the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest assigned and delegated by such Assignment and Assumption, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Assumption covering all the assigning Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of (and subject to the obligations and limitations of) Sections 2.16, 2.17, 2.18 and 9.03). Any assignment, delegation or other transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this Section 9.04 shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with Section 9.04(c).
(iv)The Administrative Agent, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrowers, shall maintain at one of its offices in the United States a copy of each Assignment and Assumption delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders, and the Commitments of, and principal amount (and stated interest) of the Loans and L/C Obligations owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the 'Register'). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lenders and the Lenders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement, notwithstanding notice to the contrary. The Register shall be


available for inspection by the Company and, as to entries pertaining to it, any Lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.
(v)Upon receipt by the Administrative Agent of a duly completed Assignment and Assumption executed by an assigning Lender and an assignee, the assignee's completed Administrative Questionnaire and any tax forms or information required by Section 2.18(g) (unless the assignee shall already be a Lender hereunder), the processing and recordation fee referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section 9.04 and any written consent to such assignment and delegation required by paragraph (b) of this Section 9.04, the Administrative Agent shall accept such Assignment and Assumption and record the information contained therein in the Register; provided that the Administrative Agent shall not be required to accept such Assignment and Assumption or so record the information contained therein if the Administrative Agent reasonably believes that such Assignment and Assumption lacks any written consent required by this Section 9.04 or is otherwise not in proper form, it being acknowledged that the Administrative Agent shall have no duty or obligation (and shall incur no liability) with respect to obtaining (or confirming the receipt) of any such written consent or with respect to the form of (or any defect in) such Assignment and Assumption, any such duty and obligation being solely with the assigning Lender and the assignee. No assignment or delegation shall be effective for purposes of this Agreement unless it has been recorded in the Register as provided in this paragraph, and following such recording, unless otherwise determined by the Administrative Agent (such determination to be made in the sole discretion of the Administrative Agent, which determination may be conditioned on the consent of the assigning Lender and the assignee), shall be effective notwithstanding any defect in the Assignment and Assumption relating thereto. Each assigning Lender and the assignee, by its execution and delivery of an Assignment and Assumption, shall be deemed to have represented to the Administrative Agent that all written consents required by this Section 9.04 with respect thereto (other than the consent of the Administrative Agent) have been obtained and that such Assignment and Assumption is otherwise duly completed and in proper form, and each assignee, by its execution and delivery of an Assignment and Assumption, shall be deemed to have represented to the assigning Lender and the Administrative Agent that such assignee is an Eligible Assignee.
(vi)In connection with any assignment of rights and obligations of any Defaulting Lender hereunder, 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 subparticipations, or other compensating actions, including funding, with the consent of the Company and the Administrative Agent, the applicable pro rata share of Loans previously requested but not funded by the Defaulting Lender, to each of which the applicable assignee and assignor hereby irrevocably consent), to (A) pay and satisfy in full all payment liabilities then owed by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Lenders or any Lender hereunder (and interest accrued thereon) and (B) acquire (and fund as appropriate) its full pro rata share of all Loans and participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans in accordance with its Applicable Percentage. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that any assignment of rights and obligations of any Defaulting 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 Defaulting Lender for all purposes of this Agreement until such compliance occurs.
(c)Any Lender may, without the consent of (or notice to) the Company, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lenders or the Swingline Lender, sell participations to one or more banks or other entities (each, a 'Participant') in all or a portion of such Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitments and Loans of any Class); provided that (A) such Lender's obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (B) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations and (C) the Company, the Administrative Agent and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement. Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which a Lender sells such a participation shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right to enforce this Agreement and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document; provided that such agreement or instrument may provide that such Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, modification or waiver described in the first proviso to Section 9.02(b) that affects such Participant or requires the approval of all the Lenders. The Borrowers agree that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.16, 2.17 and 2.18 (subject to the requirements and limitations therein, including the requirements under Section 2.18(g) (it being understood and agreed that the documentation required under Section 2.18(g) shall be delivered to the participating Lender)) to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section 9.04; provided that such Participant (A) agrees to be subject to the provisions of Sections 2.19 and 2.20 as if it were an assignee under paragraph (b) of this Section 9.04 and (B) shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 2.16 or 2.18, with respect to any participation, than its participating Lender would have been entitled to receive, except to the extent such entitlement to receive a greater payment results from a Change in Law that occurs after the Participant acquired the applicable participation. Each Lender that sells a participation agrees, at the Company's request and expense, to use reasonable efforts to cooperate with the Company to effectuate the provisions of Section 2.20(b) with respect to any Participant. To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 9.08 as though it were a Lender; provided that such Participant agrees to be subject to Section 2.19(c) as though it were a Lender. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the applicable Borrower, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each Participant's interest in the Loans or other obligations under this Agreement or any other Loan Document (the 'Participant Register'); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant's interest in any Commitments, Loans, Letters of Credit or its other obligations under this Agreement or any other Loan Document) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such Commitment, Loan, Letter of Credit or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations. The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, the Administrative Agent (in its capacity as Administrative Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.


(d)Any Lender may, without the consent of the Company or the Administrative Agent, at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank, and this Section 9.04 shall not apply to any such pledge or assignment of a security interest; provided that no such pledge or assignment of a security interest shall release a Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.
(e)Disqualified Lenders.
(i)No assignment or, to the extent the DQ List has been posted on the Platform for all Lenders, participation shall be made to any Person that was a Disqualified Lender as of the date (the 'Trade Date') on which the applicable Lender entered into a binding agreement to sell and assign or grant a participation in all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement to such Person (unless the Company has consented to such assignment or participation as otherwise provided in this Section, in which case such Person will not be considered a Disqualified Lender for the purpose of such assignment or participation). For the avoidance of doubt, with respect to any assignee or Participant that becomes a Disqualified Lender after the applicable Trade Date (including as a result of the delivery of a notice pursuant to, and expiration of the notice period referred to in the definition of 'Disqualified Lender'), (x) such assignee or Participant shall not retroactively be disqualified from becoming a Lender or Participant and (y) the execution by the Company of an Assignment and Assumption with respect to such assignee will not by itself result in such assignee no longer being considered a Disqualified Lender. Any assignment or participation in violation of this clause (e)(i) shall not be void, but the other provisions of this clause (e) shall apply.
(ii)If any assignment or participation is made to any Disqualified Lender without the Company's prior written consent in violation of clause (i) above, or if any Person becomes a Disqualified Lender after the applicable Trade Date, the Company may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to the applicable Disqualified Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Disqualified Lender to assign, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in this Section 9.04), all of its interest, rights and obligations under this Agreement to one or more Eligible Assignees at the lesser of (x) the principal amount thereof and (y) the amount that such Disqualified Lender paid to acquire such interests, rights and obligations in each case plus accrued interest, accrued fees and all other amounts (other than principal amounts) payable to it hereunder; provided that (i) the Company shall have paid to the Administrative Agent the assignment fee (if any) specified in Section 9.04(b), (ii) such assignment does not conflict with applicable laws and (iii) in the case of clause (B), the Company shall not use the proceeds from any Loans to prepay Term Loans held by Disqualified Lenders.
(iii)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Disqualified Lenders to whom an assignment or participation is made in violation of clause (i) above (A) will not have the right to (x) receive information, reports or other materials provided to Lenders by the Company, the Administrative Agent or any other Lender, (y) attend or participate in meetings attended by the Lenders and the Administrative Agent, or (z) access any electronic site established for the Lenders or


confidential communications from counsel to or financial advisors of the Administrative Agent or the Lenders, (B) for purposes of any consent to any amendment, waiver or modification of, or any action under, and for the purpose of any direction to the Administrative Agent or any Lender to undertake any action (or refrain from taking any action) under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, each Disqualified Lender will be deemed to have consented in the same proportion as the Lenders that are not Disqualified Lenders consented to such matter and (C) for purposes of voting on any plan of reorganization or plan of liquidation pursuant to any Debtor Relief Laws ('Plan of Reorganization'), each Disqualified Lender party hereto hereby agrees (1) not to vote on such Plan of Reorganization, (2) if such Disqualified Lender does vote on such Plan of Reorganization notwithstanding the restriction in the foregoing clause (1), such vote will be deemed not to be in good faith and shall be 'designated' pursuant to Section 1126(e) of the Bankruptcy Code (or any similar provision in any other Debtor Relief Laws), and such vote shall not be counted in determining whether the applicable class has accepted or rejected such Plan of Reorganization in accordance with Section 1126(c) of the Bankruptcy Code (or any similar provision in any other Debtor Relief Laws) and (3) not to contest any request by any party for a determination by the bankruptcy court (or other applicable court of competent jurisdiction) effectuating the foregoing clause (2).
(iv)The Administrative Agent shall have the right, and the Company hereby expressly authorizes the Administrative Agent, to (A) post the list of Disqualified Lenders provided by the Company and any updates thereto from time to time (collectively, the 'DQ List') on a Platform, including that portion of such Platform that is designated for 'public side' Lenders and/or (B) provide the DQ List to each Lender or potential Lender requesting the same.
SECTION 9.05Survival. All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made by the Loan Parties in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and in the certificates or other instruments delivered in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be considered to have been relied upon by the other parties hereto and shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and the making of any Loans, regardless of any investigation made by any such other party or on its behalf and notwithstanding that the Administrative Agent, any Arranger, any Lender or any Affiliate of any of the foregoing may have had notice or knowledge of any Default or incorrect representation or warranty at the time this Agreement or any other Loan Document is executed and delivered or any credit is extended hereunder, and shall continue in full force and effect as long as the principal of or any accrued interest on any Loan or any fee or any other amount payable under this Agreement is outstanding and unpaid and so long as the Commitments have not expired or terminated. The provisions of Sections 2.16, 2.17, 2.18, 2.19(e) and 9.03 and Article VIII shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of the Loans, the expiration or termination of the Commitments or the termination of this Agreement or any provision hereof.
SECTION 9.06Integration; Effectiveness. This Agreement, the other Loan Documents and any separate letter agreements with respect to fees payable to the Administrative Agent or any Issuing Lender or in connection with the syndication of the Loans and Commitments constitute the entire contract among the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersede any and all previous agreements and understandings, oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof. Except as provided in Section 4.01, this Agreement shall become effective when it shall have been executed by the Administrative Agent and when the Administrative Agent shall have received counterparts hereof that, when taken together, bear the


signatures of each of the other parties hereto, and thereafter shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
SECTION 9.07Severability. Any provision of this Agreement held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability without affecting the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof; and the invalidity of a particular provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate such provision in any other jurisdiction.
SECTION 9.08Right of Setoff. If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, each of the Lenders and each of their respective Affiliates, are hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final, in whatever currency) or other amounts at any time held and other obligations (in whatever currency) at any time owing by such Lender or its Affiliates to or for the credit or the account of any Loan Party against any of and all the Obligations then due of the Company or any such other Loan Party now or hereafter existing under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents held by such Lender, irrespective of whether or not such Lender shall have made any demand under this Agreement or any other Loan Document and although such obligations of the Loan Parties may be contingent or unmatured or are owed to a branch or office or Affiliate of such Lender different from the branch or office or Affiliate holding such deposit or obligated on such Indebtedness; provided that, in the event that any Defaulting Lender shall exercise any such right of setoff, (i) all amounts so setoff shall be paid over immediately to the Administrative Agent for further application in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and, pending such payment, shall be segregated by such Defaulting Lender from its other funds and deemed held in trust for the benefit of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lenders, the Swingline Lender and the Lenders and (ii) the Defaulting Lender shall provide promptly to the Administrative Agent a statement describing in reasonable detail the Obligations owing to such Defaulting Lender as to which it exercised such right of setoff; provided, further, that to the extent prohibited by applicable law as described in the definition of the term 'Excluded Swap Obligation', no amount received from, or set off with respect to, any Loan Party shall be applied to any Excluded Swap Obligations of such Loan Party. Each Lender agrees to notify the applicable Loan Parties and the Administrative Agent promptly after any such setoff and application; provided that the failure to give or any delay in giving such notice shall not affect the validity of any such setoff and application. The rights of each Lender and its Affiliates under this Section 9.08 are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of setoff) that such Lender or its respective Affiliates may have.
SECTION 9.09Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process. This Agreement and any claim, controversy, dispute or cause of action (whether in contract or tort or otherwise) based upon, arising out of or relating to this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the law of the State of New York; provided, however, that (i) the interpretation of the definition of the term 'Material Adverse Effect' (as defined in the GCA Acquisition Agreement as in effect on July 11, 2017) (and whether or not a 'Material Adverse Effect' has occurred under the GCA Acquisition Agreement), (ii) the accuracy of any Specified GCA Acquisition Agreement Representations and whether as a result of any inaccuracy thereof the Company or any of its Affiliates has the right (without regard to any notice requirement) to terminate its obligations (or to refuse to consummate the acquisition) under the GCA Acquisition Agreement and (iii) whether the acquisition has been consummated in accordance with the terms of the GCA Acquisition Agreement, in each case in the foregoing clauses (i), (ii) and (iii), shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Delaware (in each case, without regard to the principles of conflict of laws thereof, to the


extent that the same are not mandatorily applicable by statute and would require or permit the application of the law of another jurisdiction).
(b)Each of the parties hereto irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that it will not commence any action, litigation or proceeding of any kind or description, whether in law or equity, whether in contract or in tort or otherwise, against any other party hereto in any way relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document or the transactions relating hereto or thereto, in any forum other than the courts of the State of New York sitting in New York County and of the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York, and any appellate court from any thereof, and each of the parties hereto irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the jurisdiction of such courts and agrees that all claims in respect of any action, litigation or proceeding may be heard and determined in such New York State court or, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, in such federal court. Each party hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action, litigation 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 hereto may otherwise have to bring any action, litigation or proceeding related to any Loan Document governed by any law other than the laws of the State of New York against any other party hereto or any of its properties in the courts of the jurisdiction of the law governing such Loan Document.
(c)Each of the parties hereto irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any action, litigation or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document in any court referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section 9.09. 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.
(d)Each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 9.01.

The Company hereby represents, warrants and confirms that the Company has agreed to accept such appointment (and any similar appointment by a Loan Party which is a Foreign Subsidiary). Said designation and appointment shall be irrevocable by each such Designated Borrower until all Loans, all reimbursement obligations, interest thereon and all other amounts payable by such Designated Borrower hereunder and under the other Loan Documents shall have been paid in full in accordance with the provisions hereof and thereof and such Designated Borrower shall have been terminated as a Borrower hereunder pursuant to Section 2.26.

To the extent any Designated Borrower that is a Foreign Subsidiary has or hereafter may acquire any immunity from jurisdiction of any court or from any legal process (whether from service or notice, attachment prior to judgment, attachment in aid of execution of a judgment, execution or otherwise), each Designated Borrower hereby irrevocably waives such immunity in respect of its obligations under the Loan Documents. Nothing in this Agreement or any other Loan Document will affect the right of any party to this Agreement to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.

obligations under this Agreement (it being understood that the DQ List may be disclosed to any assignee or Participant, or prospective assignee or Participant, in reliance on this clause (f)) or (ii) any actual or prospective counterparty (or its Related Parties) to any Hedging Agreement relating to the Company or any Subsidiary and its obligations hereunder or under any other Loan Document, (g) on a confidential basis to (i) any rating agency in connection with rating the Company or its Subsidiaries or the credit facilities provided for herein or (ii) the CUSIP Service Bureau or any similar agency in connection with the issuance and monitoring of CUSIP numbers with respect to the credit facilities provided for herein, (h) with the consent of the Company or (i) to the extent such Information (i) becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section 9.12 or (ii) becomes available to the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Lender, any Lender or any Affiliate of any of the foregoing on a nonconfidential basis from a source other than the Company or any of its Subsidiaries. For purposes of this Section 9.12, 'Information' means all information received from the Company relating to the Company or any Subsidiary (including any Unrestricted Subsidiary) or their businesses, other than any such information that is available to the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Lender or any Lender on a nonconfidential basis prior to disclosure by the Company or its Subsidiary (including any Unrestricted Subsidiary) and other than information pertaining to this Agreement routinely provided by arrangers to data service providers, including league table providers, that serve the lending industry.

A Loan Party (other than the Company) shall automatically be released from its obligations under the Loan Documents, and all security interests created by the Security Documents in Collateral owned by such Loan Party shall be automatically released, (i) upon the consummation of any transaction permitted by this Agreement as a result of which such Loan Party ceases to be a Subsidiary (or becomes an Excluded Subsidiary (other than solely as a result of such Subsidiary ceasing to be a Significant Subsidiary) or an Unrestricted Subsidiary) and (ii) upon written notice from the Company to the Administrative Agent, upon or after such Loan Party becoming an Excluded Subsidiary solely as a result of such Subsidiary ceasing to be a Significant Subsidiary; provided that (a) as of any date upon which a Loan Party (other than the Company) becomes an Excluded Subsidiary and its guarantee of the Obligations is released, the Company shall be deemed to have made an Investment in a Person that is not a Loan Party in an amount equal to the fair market value of the assets (net of third-party liabilities and intercompany assets) of such Subsidiary as of such date (as


determined reasonably and in good faith by a Financial Officer of the Company) and such release shall occur only if such Investment is permitted under Section 6.04 and (b) a Subsidiary Guarantor that becomes an Excluded Subsidiary as a result of clause (a) of the definition thereof shall only be released from its obligations under the Guarantee Agreement if either (i) such release is otherwise approved, authorized or ratified in writing by the Required Lenders or (ii) such Subsidiary became a non-wholly owned Subsidiary pursuant to a transaction where such Subsidiary becomes a bona fide Joint Venture where the other Person taking an equity interest in such Subsidiary is not an Affiliate of the Company (other than as a result of such joint venture).
(V)Upon any sale or other transfer by any Loan Party (other than to the Company or any other Loan Party) of any Collateral in a transaction permitted under this Agreement, or upon the effectiveness of any written consent to the release of the security interest created under any Security Document in any Collateral pursuant to Section 9.02, the security interests in such Collateral created by the Security Documents shall be automatically released. In connection with any termination or release pursuant to this Section 9.14, the Administrative Agent shall execute and deliver to any Loan Party, at such Loan Party's expense, all documents that such Loan Party shall reasonably request to evidence such termination or release, and shall file (or authorize such Loan Party to file) any termination statements in respect of Uniform Commercial Code financing statements (or similar filings under applicable law). Any execution and delivery of documents pursuant to this Section 9.14 shall be without recourse to or warranty by the Administrative Agent.

If, for the purpose of obtaining judgment in any court, it is necessary to convert a sum owing hereunder in Dollars into another currency, each party hereto agrees, to the fullest extent that it may effectively do so, that the rate of exchange used shall be that at which in accordance with normal banking procedures in the relevant jurisdiction Dollars could be purchased with such other currency on the Business Day immediately preceding the day on which final judgment is given.
(b)The obligations of each party hereto in respect of any sum due to any other party hereto or any holder of the obligations owing hereunder (the 'Applicable Creditor') shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency (the 'Judgment Currency') other than Dollars, be discharged only to the extent that, on the Business Day following receipt by the Applicable Creditor of any sum adjudged to be so due in the Judgment Currency, the Applicable Creditor may in accordance with normal banking procedures in the relevant jurisdiction purchase Dollars with the Judgment Currency; if the amount of Dollars so purchased is less than the sum originally due to the Applicable Creditor in Dollars, such party agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify the Applicable Creditor against such deficiency.

Each of the Loan Parties and each of the Credit Parties agrees that any Electronic Signature on or associated with any Communication shall be valid and binding on such Person to the same extent as a manual, original signature, and that any Communication entered into by Electronic Signature, will constitute the legal, valid and binding obligation of such Person enforceable against such Person in accordance with the terms thereof to the same extent as if a manually executed original signature was delivered. Any Communication may be executed in as many counterparts as necessary or convenient, including both paper and electronic counterparts, but all such counterparts are one and the same Communication.

The Administrative Agent, each Issuing Lender and the Swingline Lender shall be entitled to rely on, and shall incur no liability under or in respect of this Agreement or any other Loan Document by acting upon, any Communication or any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to be genuine and signed or sent or otherwise authenticated (whether or not such Person in fact meets the requirements set forth in the Loan Documents for being the maker thereof).
(c)Each of the Loan Parties and each Credit Party hereby waives (i) any argument, defense or right to contest the legal effect, validity or enforceability of this Agreement, any other Loan Document based solely on the lack of paper original copies of this Agreement, such other Loan Document, and (ii) any claim against the Administrative Agent, each Credit Party and each Related Party of the foregoing for any liabilities arising solely from the Administrative Agent's and/or any Credit Party's reliance on or use of Electronic Signatures, including any liabilities

SECTION 9.23Acknowledgement Regarding Any Supported QFCs. To the extent that the Loan Documents provide support, through a guarantee or otherwise, for any Hedging Agreement or any other agreement or instrument that is a QFC (such support, 'QFC Credit Support', and each such QFC, a 'Supported QFC'), the parties acknowledge and agree as follows with respect to the resolution power of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation under the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and Title II of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (together with the regulations promulgated thereunder, the 'U.S. Special Resolution Regimes') in respect of such Supported QFC and QFC Credit Support (with the provisions below applicable notwithstanding that the Loan Documents and any Supported QFC may in fact be stated to be governed by the laws of the State of New York and/or of the United States or any other state of the United States): In the event a Covered Entity that is party to a Supported QFC (each, a 'Covered Party') becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, the transfer of such Supported QFC and the benefit of such QFC Credit Support (and any interest and obligation in or under such Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support, and any rights in property securing such Supported QFC or such QFC Credit Support) from such Covered Party will be effective to the same extent as the transfer would be effective under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support (and any such interest, obligation and rights in property) were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States. In the event a Covered Party or a BHC Act Affiliate of a Covered Party becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, Default Rights under the Loan Documents that might otherwise apply to such Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support that may be exercised against such Covered Party are permitted to be exercised to no greater extent than such Default Rights could be exercised under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and the Loan Documents were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States. Without limitation of the foregoing, it is understood and agreed that rights and remedies of the parties with respect to a Defaulting Lender shall in no event affect the rights of any Covered Party with respect to a Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support.
