- 33 -

(f)            Reimbursement.  If an Issuing Lender shall make any LC Disbursement in respect of a Letter of Credit, the relevant Borrower shall reimburse such Issuing Lender in respect of such LC Disbursement by paying to the Administrative Agent an amount equal to such LC Disbursement not later than 12:00 noon, New York City time, on (i) the Business Day that the relevant Borrower receives notice that such LC Disbursement has been made, if such notice is received prior to 10:00 a.m., New York City time, or (ii) the Business Day immediately following the day that the relevant Borrower receives such notice, if such notice is not received prior to such time; provided that the relevant Borrower may, subject to the conditions to borrowing set forth herein, request in accordance with Section 2.03 that such payment be financed with all or any portion of a Revolving ABR Borrowing in an amount permitted under Section 2.02(c) (in the event that such LC Disbursement was made in an Alternative Currency, such Borrowing Request shall be for the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of such LC Disbursement) and, to the extent so financed, the relevant Borrower’s obligation to make such payment shall be discharged and replaced by the resulting Revolving ABR Borrowing (or the applicable portion thereof).  Each such payment shall be made to the Issuing Lender in the currency in which such Letter of Credit is denominated (except that, in the case of any Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternative Currency, in the event that such payment is not made to the Issuing Lender within three Business Days of the date of receipt by the relevant Borrower of such notice, upon notice by the Issuing Lender to the Borrower, such payment shall be made in Dollars, in an amount equal to the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of such payment) and in immediately available funds.  Any conversion by the Issuing Lender of any payment to be made by a Borrower in respect of any Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternative Currency into Dollars in accordance with this Section 2.06(f) shall be conclusive and binding upon such Borrower and the Lenders in the absence of manifest error; provided that upon the request of any Lender, the Issuing Lender shall provide to such Lender a certificate including reasonably detailed information as to the calculation of such conversion.  If a Borrower’s reimbursement of, or obligation to reimburse, any amounts in any Alternative Currency would subject the Administrative Agent, the applicable Issuing Lender or any Lender to any duty, charge or stamp duty, ad valorem charge or similar tax that would not be payable if such reimbursement were made or required to be made in Dollars, the Borrower shall pay the amount of any such duty, charge or tax requested by the Administrative Agent, the relevant Issuing Lender or Lender.
 
If any Borrower fails to make payment when due in respect of any LC Disbursement relating to a Letter of Credit issued for its account, the Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender of the applicable LC Disbursement, the payment then due from such Borrower and such Lender’s Applicable Percentage thereof.
 
(g)           Obligations Absolute.  Each Borrower’s obligations to reimburse LC Disbursements as provided in Section 2.06(f) shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be performed strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement under any and all circumstances whatsoever and irrespective of (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit, or any term or provision therein, (ii) any draft or other document presented under a Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent or invalid in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect, (iii) payment by any 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, (iv) at any time or from time to time, without notice to any Borrower or any other Person, the time for any performance of or compliance with any of such reimbursement obligations of any other Borrower shall be waived, extended or renewed, (v) any of such reimbursement obligations of any other Borrower shall be amended or otherwise modified in any respect, or the Guarantee of any of such reimbursement obligations or any security therefor shall be released, substituted or exchanged in whole or in part or otherwise dealt with, (vi) any lien or security interest granted to, or in favor of, the Administrative Agent or any of the Lenders as security for any of such reimbursement obligations shall fail to be perfected, (vii) the occurrence of any Default, (viii) the existence of any proceedings of the type described in  Section 7(g) or (h) with respect to any other Loan Party, (ix) any lack of validity or enforceability of any of such reimbursement obligations against any other Loan Party, or (x) 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 obligations of any Borrower hereunder.

Neither the Administrative Agent, the Lenders nor the Issuing Lenders, nor any of their Related Parties, shall have any liability or responsibility by reason of or in connection with the issuance or transfer of any Letter of Credit by the Issuing Lender thereof 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 other communication under or relating to 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 the Issuing Lender of such Letter of Credit; provided that the foregoing shall not be construed to excuse such Issuing Lender from liability to any Borrower or to any Lender which has funded its participation hereunder in such Letter of Credit to the extent of any direct damages (as opposed to special, indirect, punitive or consequential damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by the Loan Parties and the Lenders to the extent permitted by applicable law) suffered by any Borrower or any such Lender, as the case may be, that are caused by such Issuing Lender’s failure to exercise the standard of care agreed hereunder to be applicable when determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof.  The parties hereto expressly agree that such standard of care shall be as follows, and that such Issuing Lender shall be deemed to have exercised such standard of care in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct on its part (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment):
 
(i)           an Issuing Lender of a Letter of Credit may accept documents that appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, and may make payment upon presentation of documents that appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit; and
 
(ii)          an Issuing Lender of a Letter of Credit shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to decline to accept such documents and to make such payment if such documents are not in strict compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit.
 
(h)           Disbursement Procedures.  Upon presentation of documents with respect to a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit, each Issuing Lender in respect of such Letter of Credit shall (i) promptly notify the Administrative Agent, the Company and (if different) the relevant Borrower by telephone (confirmed by facsimile) of such demand for payment, (ii) promptly following its receipt of such documents, examine all documents purporting to represent a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit and (iii) promptly after such examination notify the Administrative Agent, the Company and (if different) the relevant Borrower by telephone (confirmed by facsimile) whether the Issuing Lender has made or will make an LC Disbursement under such Letter of Credit; provided that any failure to give or delay in giving any such notice shall not relieve such Borrower of its obligation to reimburse such Issuing Lender and the Lenders with respect to any such LC Disbursement.
 
- 35 -

(i)            Interim Interest.  If any Issuing Lender shall make any LC Disbursement, then, unless the relevant Borrower shall reimburse such LC Disbursement in full on the date such LC Disbursement is made, the unpaid amount thereof shall bear interest, for each day from and including the date such LC Disbursement is made to, but excluding, the date that such Borrower reimburses such LC Disbursement, (i) in the case of LC Disbursements made in Dollars, at the rate per annum then applicable to Revolving ABR Loans and (ii) in the case of LC Disbursements made in an Alternative Currency, at the overnight London interbank offered rate for the relevant Alternative Currency determined by the Administrative Agent in good faith plus the Applicable Rate per annum then applicable to Eurocurrency Borrowings; provided that, if such Borrower fails to reimburse such LC Disbursement when due pursuant to Section 2.06(f), then Section 2.13(c) shall apply.  In the case of LC Disbursements made in an Alternative Currency, the amount of interest due with respect thereto shall be payable in the applicable Alternative Currency; provided that, if the Borrower’s payment obligation with respect to an LC Disbursement made in an Alternative Currency has been converted pursuant to Section 2.06(f) into an obligation to pay the Dollar Equivalent of such amount, then interest payable thereon shall be payable in Dollars in the amount equal to the Dollar Equivalent thereof.  Interest accrued pursuant to this paragraph shall be for the account of such Issuing Lender, except that interest accrued on and after the date of payment by any Lender pursuant to Section 2.06(e) to reimburse such Issuing Lender shall be for the account of such Lender to the extent of such payment.
 
(j)            Additional Issuing Lenders; Termination of Issuing Lenders.  An Issuing Lender may be added, or an existing Issuing Lender may be terminated, under this Agreement at any time by written agreement between the Company, the Administrative Agent and the relevant Issuing Lender.  The Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders of any such addition or termination.  At the time any such termination shall become effective, the Borrowers shall pay all unpaid fees accrued for the account of the Issuing Lender being terminated pursuant to Section 2.12(b)(i).  From and after the effective date of any such addition, the new Issuing Lender shall have all the rights and obligations of an Issuing Lender under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit to be issued thereafter.  References herein to the term “Issuing Lender” shall be deemed to refer to each new Issuing Lender or to any previous Issuing Lender, or to such new Issuing Lender and all previous Issuing Lenders, as the context shall require.  After the termination of an Issuing Lender hereunder, the terminated 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 any outstanding Letters of Credit issued by it prior to such termination, but shall not be required to issue any new Letters of Credit or to renew or extend any such outstanding Letters of Credit.
 
- 36 -

(k)           Cash Collateralization.  If (i) an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing and the Company receives notice from the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders (or, if the maturity of the Loans has been accelerated, Lenders with LC Exposure representing more than 50% of the total LC Exposure) demanding the deposit of cash collateral pursuant to this paragraph or (ii) any of the other provisions of this Agreement require cash collateralization, the Company shall immediately deposit into an account established and maintained on the books and records of the Administrative Agent, which account may be a “securities account” (within the meaning of Section 8-501 of the Uniform Commercial Code as in effect in the State of New York), in the name of the Administrative Agent and for the benefit of the Credit Parties (the “LC Collateral Account”), an amount in immediately available funds in Dollars equal to 105% of the LC Exposure as of such date plus any accrued and unpaid interest thereon; provided that the obligation to deposit such amount shall become effective immediately, and such deposit shall become immediately due and payable, without demand or other notice of any kind, upon the occurrence of any Event of Default described in clause (g) or (h) of Article VII ; provided, further, that the portions of such amount attributable to undrawn Letters of Credit issued in an Alternative Currency shall be deposited in the relevant Alternative Currency.  Such deposits shall be held by the Administrative Agent as collateral for the LC Exposure under this Agreement and for the payment and performance of the Obligations, and for this purpose the Administrative Agent shall have exclusive dominion and control, including the exclusive right of withdrawal, over the LC Collateral Account and each Borrower hereby grants a security interest to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Credit Parties in the LC Collateral Account and in any financial assets (as defined in the Uniform Commercial Code) or other property held therein.  Other than any interest earned on the investment of such deposits, which investments shall be made at the option and sole discretion of the Administrative Agent (in accordance with its usual and customary practices for investments of this type) and at the Borrower’s risk and reasonable expense, such deposits shall not bear interest.  Interest or profits, if any, on such investments shall accumulate in the LC Collateral Account.  Moneys and financial assets in the LC Collateral Account shall be applied by the Administrative Agent to reimburse the applicable Issuing Lender for LC Disbursements for which it has not been reimbursed and, to the extent not so applied, shall be held for the satisfaction of the reimbursement obligations of the Borrowers for the LC Exposure at such time or, if the maturity of the Loans has been accelerated (but subject to the consent of Lenders with LC Exposure representing more than 50% of the total LC Exposure), be applied to satisfy other Obligations.  The Administrative Agent shall cause all such cash collateral (to the extent not applied as aforesaid) to be returned to the Company within three Business Days after (A) in the case of clause (i) above, the applicable Event of Default shall have been cured or waived (so long as no other Event of Default has occurred and is continuing at such time) or (B) in the case of clause (ii) above, such cash collateral shall no longer be required pursuant to the applicable provision hereof.
 
(l)            Existing Letters of Credit.  Each of the letters of credit listed on Schedule 2.06(l) shall automatically, and without any action on the part of any Person, be deemed a Letter of Credit issued and continued hereunder as of the Effective Date.

 
(m)          Dollar Equivalent Determination.  The Administrative Agent shall determine the Dollar Equivalent of the LC Exposure with respect to Letters of Credit denominated in an Alternative Currency as of the end of each fiscal quarter of the relevant Borrower.  If after giving effect to any such determination of the Dollar Equivalent of such LC Exposure, the LC Exposure exceeds 105% of the LC Commitment, the Borrowers shall, within five Business Days of receipt of notice thereof from the Administrative Agent setting forth such calculation in reasonable detail, deposit cash collateral in the LC Collateral Account pursuant to Section 2.06 in an amount equal to such excess.
 
(n)           Reporting.  Unless otherwise requested by the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Lender shall (i) provide to the Administrative Agent copies of any notice received from any Borrower pursuant to Section 2.06(b) no later than the Business Day after receipt thereof and (ii) report in writing to the Administrative Agent (A) on the first Business Day of each week, the activity for each day during the immediately preceding week in respect of Letters of Credit issued by it, including all issuances, extensions, amendments and renewals, all expirations and cancellations and all disbursements and reimbursements, (B) on or prior to each Business Day on which such Issuing Lender expects to issue, amend, renew or extend any Letter of Credit, the date of such issuance, amendment, renewal or extension, whether such Letter of Credit is a trade, financial or performance Letter of Credit, and the aggregate face amount of the Letters of Credit to be issued, amended, renewed or extended by it and outstanding after giving effect to such issuance, amendment, renewal or extension (and whether the amount thereof changed), and no Issuing Lender shall be permitted to issue, amend, renew or extend such Letter of Credit without first obtaining written confirmation from the Administrative Agent that such issuance, amendment, renewal or extension is then permitted by the terms of this Agreement, (C) on each Business Day on which such Issuing Lender makes any LC Disbursement, the date of such LC Disbursement and the amount and currency of such LC Disbursement and (D) on any other Business Day, such other information as the Administrative Agent shall reasonably request, including but not limited to prompt verification of such information as may be requested by the Administrative Agent.

SECTION 2.07     Funding of Borrowings.
 
(a)           Funding by Lenders.  Each Lender shall make each Loan to be made by it hereunder on the proposed date thereof by wire transfer of immediately available funds by (x) 2:00 p.m., New York City time, in the case of Dollar Loans and (y) 12:00 noon, London time, in the case of Alternative Currency Loans, to the account of the Administrative Agent most recently designated by it for such purpose by notice to the Lenders.  The Administrative Agent will make such Loans available to the relevant Borrower by promptly crediting the amounts so received, in like funds, to an account of such Borrower designated by such Borrower in the applicable Borrowing Request; provided that Revolving ABR Borrowings made to finance the reimbursement of an LC Disbursement as provided in Section 2.06(f) shall be remitted by the Administrative Agent to the relevant Issuing Lender.
 
(b)           Presumption by the Administrative Agent.  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 and may, in reliance upon 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 relevant Lender and the Borrowers agree (jointly and severally with each other Borrower, but severally and not jointly with the applicable Lenders) 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 such Lender, the Federal Funds Effective Rate (in the case of amounts denominated in Dollars) or the Adjusted Eurocurrency Rate (in the case of amounts denominated in an Alternative Currency) or (ii) in the case of such Borrower, the interest rate applicable to ABR Loans.  If such Lender pays such amount to the Administrative Agent, then such amount shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing.  With respect to any share of a Borrowing not made available by a Lender as contemplated above, if such Lender subsequently pays its share of such Borrowing to the Administrative Agent, then the Administrative Agent shall promptly repay any corresponding amount paid by the relevant Borrower to the Administrative Agent as provided in this paragraph (including interest thereon to the extent received by the Administrative Agent); provided that such repayment to such Borrower shall not operate as a waiver or any abandonment of any rights or remedies of such Borrower with respect to such Lender.
 
SECTION 2.08     Interest Elections.
 
(a)           Elections by the Borrowers for Revolving Borrowings.  The Loans constituting each Revolving Borrowing initially shall be of the Type specified in the applicable Borrowing Request and, in the case of a Revolving Eurocurrency Borrowing, shall have an initial Interest Period as specified in such Borrowing Request.  Thereafter, the relevant Borrower may elect to convert such Borrowing to a Borrowing of a different Type or to continue such Borrowing as a Borrowing of the same Type and, in the case of a Revolving Eurocurrency Borrowing, may elect the Interest Period therefor, all as provided in this Section; provided that only Eurocurrency Borrowings which are Dollar Loans may be converted into an ABR Borrowings.  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 relevant Lenders holding the Loans comprising such Borrowing, and the Loans comprising each such portion shall be considered a separate Borrowing.
 
- 38 -

(b)           Notice of Elections.  To make an election pursuant to this Section, the Company (on behalf of itself or the relevant Borrower) or the relevant Borrower 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 were requesting a Revolving Borrowing of the Type resulting from such election to be made on the effective date of such election.  Each such telephonic Interest Election Request shall be irrevocable and shall be confirmed promptly by hand delivery or facsimile to the Administrative Agent of a written Interest Election Request in a form approved by the Administrative Agent and signed by the Company (on behalf of itself or the relevant Borrower) or the relevant Borrower.
 
(c)           Content of Interest Election Requests.  Each telephonic and written Interest Election Request shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:
 
(i)           the Borrower and the Borrowing 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) of this paragraph 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)         in the case of a Borrowing to be denominated in Dollars, whether the resulting Borrowing is to be an ABR Borrowing or a Eurocurrency Borrowing; and
 
(iv)         if the resulting Borrowing is a Eurocurrency Borrowing, the Interest Period therefor after giving effect to such election, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period” and permitted under Section 2.02(d).
 
If any such Interest Election Request requests a Eurocurrency Borrowing but does not specify an Interest Period, then the Borrowers shall be deemed to have requested an Interest Period of one month’s duration.
 
(d)           Notice by the Administrative Agent to the Lenders.  Promptly following receipt of an Interest Election Request, the Administrative Agent shall advise each Lender of the details thereof and of such Lender’s portion of each resulting Borrowing.
 
(e)           Failure to Elect; Events of Default.  If the Company or the relevant Subsidiary Borrower fails to deliver a timely and complete Interest Election Request with respect to a Revolving Eurocurrency Borrowing by a Borrower 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 (i) in the case of Dollar Loans, shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing and (ii) in the case of Alternative Currency Loans, shall be automatically continued as Eurocurrency Loans with an Interest Period of one month’s duration.  Notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent, at the request of the Required Lenders, so notifies the Company and the relevant Borrower, then, so long as an Event of Default is continuing (A) no outstanding Revolving Borrowing denominated in Dollars may be converted to or continued as a Revolving Eurocurrency Borrowing and (B) unless repaid, each Revolving Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in Dollars shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto.

(b)           Voluntary Termination or Reduction.  The Company may at any time terminate, or from time to time reduce, the Commitments; provided that (i) each reduction of the Commitments shall be in an amount that is $25,000,000 or a larger multiple of $5,000,000; and (ii) the Company shall not terminate or reduce the Commitments if, after giving effect to any concurrent prepayment of the Revolving Loans in accordance with Section 2.11, (x) the Total Credit Exposure would exceed the Total Commitment or (y) any Lender’s Credit Exposure would exceed such Lender’s Commitment.
 
(c)           Notice of Voluntary Termination or Reduction.  The Company shall notify the Administrative Agent of any election to terminate or reduce the Commitments under paragraph (b) of this Section at least three Business Days prior to the effective date of such termination or reduction, specifying such election and the effective date thereof.  Promptly following receipt of any notice, the Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of the contents thereof.  Each notice delivered by the Company pursuant to this Section shall be irrevocable; provided that 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, 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.
 
(d)           Effect of Termination or Reduction.  Any termination or reduction of the Commitments shall be permanent.  Each reduction of the Commitments shall be made ratably among the Lenders in accordance with their respective Commitments.
 
SECTION 2.10     Repayment of Loans; Evidence of Debt.
 
(a)           Repayment.  The Borrowers hereby unconditionally promise to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders the outstanding principal amount of the Revolving Loans in the currency in which such Loans were made on the Commitment Termination Date.
 
(b)           [Reserved]
 
(c)           Maintenance of Records by Lenders.  Each Lender shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice records evidencing the indebtedness of each Borrower to such Lender resulting from each Loan made by such Lender to such Borrower, including the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid to such Lender from time to time hereunder.
 
(d)           Maintenance of Records by the Administrative Agent.  The Administrative Agent shall maintain records in which it shall record (i) the amount of each Loan made hereunder, the Type thereof and each Interest Period therefor, (ii) the amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from each Borrower to each Lender hereunder and (iii) the amount of any sum received by the Administrative Agent hereunder for the account of the relevant Lenders and each such Lender’s share thereof.
 
(e)           Effect of Entries.  The entries made in the records maintained pursuant to paragraph (c) or (d)  of this Section shall be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations recorded therein; provided that the failure of any Lender or the Administrative Agent to maintain such records or any error therein shall not in any manner affect the obligation of the relevant Borrower to repay the Loans made to such Borrower in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
 
- 40 -

(f)            Promissory Notes.  Any Lender may request that Loans 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 to such Borrower evidenced by such promissory note and interest thereon shall at all times (including after assignment pursuant to Section 10.04) be represented by one or more promissory notes in such form payable to such payee and its registered assigns.
 
SECTION 2.11     Prepayment of Loans.
 
(a)           Optional Prepayments.  Each Borrower 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.
 
(b)           Mandatory Prepayments.  If (i) on any Calculation Date the Total Credit Exposure exceeds 105% of the Total Commitment or (ii) on the last day of any Interest Period the Total Credit Exposure exceeds the Total Commitment, then, in each case of clause (i) or (ii), the Borrowers shall, within three Business Days of receipt of notice thereof from the Administrative Agent, prepay Loans in an amount such that, after giving effect thereto, the Total Credit Exposure does not exceed the Total Commitment; provided that any such prepayment shall be accompanied by accrued interest to the extent required by Section 2.13 but shall be without premium or penalty of any kind (other than any payments required under Section 2.16); provided, further, that if the aggregate principal amount of Revolving Loans then outstanding (calculated using the Dollar Equivalent of any Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency) is less than the amount of such excess (because LC Exposure constitutes a portion thereof), the Borrowers shall, to the extent of the balance of such excess, deposit an amount in cash in the LC Collateral Account.  If the Borrowers are required to provide (and have provided the required amount of) cash collateral pursuant to this Section 2.11(b) and such excess is subsequently reduced, cash collateral in an amount equal to the lesser of (x) any such reduction and (b) the amount of such cash collateral (to the extent not applied as set forth in Section 2.06(k)) shall be returned to the Borrowers within two Business Days after any such reduction.
 
(c)           All such amounts pursuant to Section 2.11(b) shall be applied to prepay the Revolving Loans without a corresponding reduction in the Total Commitment and to cash collateralize outstanding LC Exposure.

(c)           Default Interest.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, (1) if any principal of or interest on any Dollar Loan or any fee or other amount payable by any Borrower hereunder in Dollars is not paid when due, whether at stated maturity, upon acceleration, by mandatory prepayment 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% plus the rate otherwise applicable to such Loan as provided above or (ii) in the case of any other amount, 2% plus the rate applicable to ABR Loans as provided in paragraph (a) of this Section and (2) if any principal of or interest on any Alternative Currency Loan or any fee or other amount payable by any Borrower hereunder in any Alternative Currency is not paid when due, whether at stated maturity, upon acceleration, by mandatory prepayment or otherwise, such overdue amount shall bear interest, after as well as before judgement, at a rate per annum equal to 2% plus the rate otherwise applicable to such Alternative Currency Loans.
 
(d)           Payment of Interest.  Accrued interest on each Loan shall be payable in arrears, in the currency such Loan was made, on each Interest Payment Date for such Loan and upon termination of the Commitments; provided  that (i) interest accrued pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section shall be payable on demand, (ii) in the event of any repayment or prepayment of any Loan (other than a prepayment of a Revolving ABR Loan prior to the Commitment Termination Date), 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 any Revolving Eurocurrency Borrowing prior to the end of the current Interest Period therefor, accrued interest on such Borrowing shall be payable on the effective date of such conversion.
 
(e)           Computation.  All interest hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, except that (i) interest in respect of Loans denominated in Pounds Sterling shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days and (ii) interest computed by reference to the Alternate Base Rate at times when the Alternate Base Rate is based on the Prime Rate shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days in a leap year), and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).  The applicable Alternate Base Rate, Adjusted Eurocurrency Rate or Eurocurrency Rate shall be determined by the Administrative Agent, and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

 SECTION 2.14    Alternate Rate of Interest.  (a) If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for any Eurocurrency Borrowing in any currency:
 
(i)            the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that (A) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Eurocurrency Rate or the Adjusted Eurocurrency Rate for such Borrowing in such currency for such Interest Period or (B) the making of any Eurocurrency Borrowing would be illegal or conflict with any Requirement of Law;
 
(ii)           the Administrative Agent is advised by the Required Lenders that the Eurocurrency Rate or the Adjusted Eurocurrency Rate with respect to such Borrowing in such currency for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders (or Lender) of making or maintaining their respective Loans (or its Loan) included in such Borrowing in such currency for such Interest Period; or
 
- 43 -

(iii)          the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive and binding upon the Borrowers) that deposits in the applicable currency are not generally available, or cannot be obtained by the Lenders, in the applicable market (any Alternative Currency affected by the circumstances described in Section 2.14(a)(i) or (a)(ii) is referred to as an “Affected Foreign Currency”);
 
then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Company and the Lenders by telephone or facsimile as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Company and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, if the foregoing circumstances affect Dollar Loans, (x) any Interest Election Request that requests the conversion of any Revolving Borrowing denominated in Dollars to, or the continuation of any Revolving Borrowing denominated in Dollars as, a Revolving Eurocurrency Borrowing shall be ineffective and such Revolving Borrowing (unless prepaid) shall be continued as, or converted to, a Revolving ABR Borrowing, (ii) if any Borrowing Request requests a Revolving Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in Dollars, such Borrowing shall be made as a Revolving ABR Borrowing. Until such relevant notice has been withdrawn by the Administrative Agent, no further Eurocurrency Loans in an Affected Foreign Currency shall be made or continued as such, nor shall the applicable Borrower have the right to convert ABR Loans to Eurocurrency Loans, to the extent such Eurocurrency Loan is denominated in an Affected Foreign Currency.
 
(b)           If at any time the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that (i) the circumstances set forth in Section 2.14(a)(i) have arisen and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary or (ii) the circumstances set forth in Section 2.14(a)(i) have not arisen but either (w) the supervisor for the administrator of the LIBO Screen Rate has made a public statement that the administrator of the LIBO Screen Rate is insolvent (and there is no successor administrator that will continue publication of the LIBO Screen Rate), (x) the administrator of the LIBO Screen Rate has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the LIBO Screen Rate will permanently or indefinitely cease to be published by it (and there is no successor administrator that will continue publication of the LIBO Screen Rate), (y) the supervisor for the administrator of the LIBO Screen Rate has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the LIBO Screen Rate will permanently or indefinitely cease to be published or (z) the supervisor for the administrator of the LIBO Screen Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the LIBO Screen Rate may no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans, then the Administrative Agent and the Company shall endeavor to establish an alternate rate of interest to the Eurocurrency Rate that gives due consideration to the then prevailing market convention for determining a rate of interest for syndicated loans in the United States at such time, and shall enter into an amendment to this Agreement to reflect such alternate rate of interest and such other related changes to this Agreement as may be applicable (but for the avoidance of doubt, such related changes shall not include a reduction of the Applicable Rate); provided that, if such alternate rate of interest as so determined would be less than zero, such rate shall be deemed to be zero for the purposes of this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 10.02, such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement so long as the Administrative Agent shall not have received, within five Business Days of the date notice of such alternate rate of interest is provided to the Lenders, written notices from such Lenders that in the aggregate constitute Required Lenders stating that such Required Lenders object to such amendment. Until an alternate rate of interest shall be determined in accordance with this Section 2.14(b) (but, in the case of the circumstances described in clause (ii) of the first sentence of this Section 2.14(b), only to the extent the LIBO Screen Rate for Dollars and such Interest Period is not available or published at such time on a current basis), (x) any Interest Election Request that requests the conversion of any Borrowing to, or continuation of any Borrowing as, a Eurocurrency Borrowing shall be ineffective and (y) if any Borrowing Request requests a Eurocurrency Borrowing, such Borrowing shall be made as an ABR Borrowing.

SECTION 2.15      Increased Costs.
 
(a)           Increased Costs Generally.  If any Change in Law shall:
 
(i)           subject any Lender or any Issuing Lender to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes covered by Section 2.17 and (B) Excluded Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto;
 
(ii)          impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, any Lender (except any such reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted Eurocurrency Rate) or any Issuing Lender; or
 
(iii)         impose on any Lender or any Issuing Lender or the London interbank market any other condition (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or Eurocurrency Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or participation therein;
 
and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lenders of making or maintaining any Eurocurrency Loan (or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan) or to increase the cost to such Lender or such Issuing Lender of participating in, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender or such Issuing Lender hereunder (whether of principal, interest or otherwise), then the Company will pay to such Lender or such Issuing Lender, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such Issuing Lender, as the case may be, for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.
 
(b)           Capital Requirements.  If any Lender or any Issuing Lender determines that any Change in Law regarding capital or liquidity requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or such Issuing Lender’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s or such Issuing Lender’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement or the Loans made by, or participations in Letters of Credit held by, such Lender, or the Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Lender, to a level below that which such Lender or such Issuing Lender or such Lender’s or such Issuing Lender’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s or such Issuing Lender’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s or such Issuing Lender’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity), then from time to time the Company will pay to such Lender or such Issuing Lender, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such Issuing Lender or such Lender’s or such Issuing Lender’s holding company for any such reduction suffered.
 
(c)           Certificates from Lenders.  A certificate of a Lender or an Issuing Lender setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or such Issuing Lender or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section shall be delivered to the Company and shall be conclusive absent manifest error.  The Company shall pay such Lender or such Issuing Lender, as the case may be, the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof.
 
- 45 -

(d)           Delay in Requests.  Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or any Issuing Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s or such Issuing Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the Company shall not be required to compensate a Lender or an Issuing Lender pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than six months prior to the date that such Lender or such Issuing Lender, as the case may be, notifies the Company of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s or such Issuing Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the six-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.
 
(e)           Dodd-Frank Act; Basel III.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, (i) all requests, rules, guidelines, requirements and directives promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor or similar authority) or by United States or foreign regulatory authorities, in each case pursuant to Basel III and (ii) the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and all requests, rules, guidelines or directives thereunder or issued in connection therewith or in implementation thereof shall, in each case, be deemed to be a Change in Law, regardless of the date enacted, adopted, issued or implemented.
 
(f)            If by reason of any change in a Requirement of Law subsequent to the Effective Date, disruption of currency or foreign exchange markets, war or civil disturbance or similar event, the funding of any Alternative Currency Loan in any currency or the funding of any Alternative Currency Loan in any currency to an office located other than in New York shall be impossible or such currency is no longer available or readily convertible to Dollars, or the Dollar Equivalent of such currency is no longer readily calculable, then, at the election of the Administrative Agent, for so long as such condition shall continue in effect, no Alternative Currency Loans in the applicable currency shall be made or any Alternative Currency Loan in the relevant currency shall be made to an office of the Administrative Agent located in New York, as the case may be.
 
(g)           (i) If payment in respect of any Alternative Currency Loan shall be due in a currency other than Dollars and/or at a place of payment other than New York and if, by reason of any change in a Requirement of Law subsequent to the Effective Date, disruption of currency or foreign exchange markets, war or civil disturbance or similar event, payment of such Obligations in such currency or such place of payment shall be impossible or, in the reasonable judgment of the Administrative Agent, such currency is no longer available or readily convertible to Dollars, or the Dollar Equivalent of such currency is no longer readily calculable, then, at the election of any affected Lender, the Borrower shall make payment of such Loan in Dollars (based upon the Exchange Rate in effect for the day on which such payment occurs, as determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with the terms hereof) and/or in New York or (ii) if any Alternative Currency in which Loans are outstanding is redenominated then, at the election of any affected Lender, such affected Loan and all obligations of the applicable Borrower in respect thereof shall be converted into obligations in Dollars (based upon the Exchange Rate in effect on such date, as determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with the terms hereof), and, in each case, the Borrower shall indemnify the Lenders, against any currency exchange losses or reasonable out-of-pocket expenses that it shall sustain as a result of such alternative payment.

SECTION 2.16      Break Funding Payments.  In the event of (a) the payment of any principal of any Eurocurrency 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 Revolving Eurocurrency Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, (c) the failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay any Eurocurrency Loan on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto (regardless of whether such notice is permitted to be revocable under Section 2.11(d) and is revoked in accordance therewith) or (d) the assignment as a result of a request by the Company pursuant to Section 2.19(b) of any Revolving Eurocurrency Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, then,  the Company shall compensate each Lender for the loss, cost and expense attributable to such event.  In the case of a Eurocurrency Loan, such loss, cost or expense to any Lender attributable to any such event shall be deemed to include an amount determined by such Lender to be equal to the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest that such Lender would pay for a deposit equal to the principal amount of such Loan for the period from the date of such payment, conversion, failure or assignment to the last day of the then current Interest Period for such Loan (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, the duration of the Interest Period that would have resulted from such borrowing, conversion or continuation) if the interest rate payable on such deposit were equal to the Adjusted Eurocurrency Rate for such Interest Period, over (ii) the amount of interest that such Lender would earn on such principal amount for such period if such Lender were to invest such principal amount for such period at the interest rate that would be bid by such Lender (or an Affiliate of such Lender) for deposits denominated in Dollars from other banks in the eurocurrency market at the commencement of such period.  A certificate of any Lender setting forth any amount or amounts that such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section shall be delivered to the Company and shall be conclusive absent manifest error.  The Company shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof.

- 46 -

SECTION 2.17      Taxes.
 
(a)           Payments Free of Taxes.  Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of any Loan Party hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be made free and clear of and without deduction or withholding for any Taxes except as required by applicable law; provided that if any Taxes are required to be withheld or deducted from such payments, then (i) if such Taxes are Indemnified Taxes, the sum payable by the applicable Loan Party shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions or withholdings (including deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) the Administrative Agent, a Lender (or with respect to a Lender treated as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes its direct or indirect partners) or an Issuing Lender (as the case may be) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made, (ii) the applicable withholding agent shall make such deductions or withholdings and (iii) such withholding agent shall pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
 
(b)           Payment of Other Taxes.  In addition, the Loan Parties shall timely pay, or at the option of the Administrative Agent, timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
 
(c)           Indemnification of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders.  Without duplication of the obligations of each Loan Party pursuant to Section 2.17(a) or (b), each Loan Party shall indemnify the Administrative Agent, each Lender and each Issuing Lender, within 30 days after written 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) paid by the Administrative Agent, such Lender or such Issuing Lender, as the case may be, and any penalties, interest and reasonable out-of-pocket 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, in each case on or with respect to payments by or on account of any obligations of any Loan Party hereunder or under any other Loan Document.  A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Loan Party by a Lender or an Issuing Lender, or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender or an Issuing Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
 
- 47 -

(d)           Evidence of Payments.  As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by a Loan Party to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section, such Loan Party shall deliver to the Administrative Agent for its own account, the account of the relevant Lender or the relevant Issuing Lender, as the case may be, 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 of the Administrative Agent and the Loan Parties.  Each Lender and Issuing Lender shall, within 30 days after demand therefor, indemnify (i) the Administrative Agent for the full amount of any Taxes attributable to such Lender and any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 10.04(c) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register, and (ii) each of the Loan Parties for the full amount of any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender, in each case, that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent or such Loan Party, as the case may be, in connection with any Loan Document, and 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 and Issuing Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender or Issuing Lender under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender or Issuing Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this paragraph (e).
 
(f)            Status of Lenders.  Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of any applicable withholding tax with respect to payments hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall deliver to the relevant Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), at the time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation prescribed by applicable law as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding.  In addition, any Lender, if requested by a Borrower or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrower 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, in the case of any withholding tax other than U.S. federal withholding tax, the completion, execution and submission of such forms 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.
 
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing,
 
(i)           any Lender that is a “United States person” (as defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code) shall deliver to the Borrowers 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 request of a Borrower or the Administrative Agent), duly completed copies of IRS Form W-9 (or any successor form) certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding tax;
 
(ii)          any Non-U.S. Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrowers 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 Non-U.S. Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the request of a Borrower or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:
 
- 48 -

(A)           duly completed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E (or any successor form) claiming eligibility for benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States of America is a party,
 
(B)           duly completed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8ECI or IRS Form W-8EXP (or any successor form),
 
(C)           in the case of a Non-U.S. 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 H-1 to the effect that (i) such Non-U.S. Lender is not (A) a “bank” within the meaning of section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, (B) a “10 percent shareholder” of any Borrower within the meaning of section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, and (C) a “controlled foreign corporation” described in section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code, and (ii) the interest payments in question are not effectively connected with the United States trade or business conducted by such Lender (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) duly completed copies of  Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E (or any successor form),
 
(D)           to the extent a Non-U.S. Lender is not the beneficial owner (for example, where the Non-U.S. Lender is a partnership or participating Lender granting a typical participation), an Internal Revenue Service Form W-8IMY (or any successor form), accompanied by a Form W-8ECI, W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E (or any successor form), U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit H-2 or Exhibit H-3, Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that, if the Non-U.S. Lender is a partnership (and not a participating Lender) and one or more beneficial owners of such Non-U.S. Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Non-U.S. Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit H-4 on behalf of each such beneficial owner, or
 
(E)           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 the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and
 
(iii)         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 the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by a 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 a Borrower or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Borrowers 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 Section 2.17(f), the term “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.
 
- 49 -

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 Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.
 
In the event the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Lender or any Lender shall become subject to Taxes because of its failure to deliver a form required under this Section, the Company (and, if applicable, the relevant Loan Party) shall take such steps as the Administrative Agent, such Issuing Lender or such Lender, as the case may be, shall reasonably request to assist it to recover such Taxes; provided that, in the reasonable judgment of the Company (or such Loan Party), such steps shall not subject the Company (or such Loan Party) to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to the Company (or such Loan Party) in any material respect.
 
Solely for purposes of determining withholding Taxes imposed under FATCA, from and after the Effective Date, the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent shall treat (and the Lenders hereby authorize the Administrative Agent to treat) the Loan as not qualifying as a “grandfathered obligation” within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.1471-2(b)(2)(i).
 
(g)           Refunds.  If the Administrative Agent, a Lender or an Issuing Lender determines, in its sole discretion, that it has received a refund of any Indemnified Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by any Loan Party or with respect to which any Loan Party has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section, it shall pay over such refund to such Loan Party (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by such Loan Party under this Section with respect to the Indemnified Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses of the Administrative Agent, such Lender or such Issuing Lender, as the case may be, and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided that such Loan Party, upon the request of the Administrative Agent, such Lender or such Issuing Lender, agrees to repay the amount paid over to such Loan Party (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to the Administrative Agent, such Lender or such Issuing Lender in the event the Administrative Agent, such Lender or such Issuing Lender is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (g), in no event will the Administrative Agent, such Lender or such Issuing Lender be required to pay any amount to a Loan Party pursuant to this paragraph (g) the payment of which would place the Administrative Agent, such Lender or such Issuing Lender in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the Administrative Agent, such Lender or such Issuing Lender 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 Section shall not be construed to require the Administrative Agent, any Lender or any Issuing Lender to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to any Loan Party or any other Person.
 
(h)           Survival.  The agreements in this Section shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder.

SECTION 2.18      Payments Generally; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Set-offs.
 
(a)            Payments by the Loan Parties.
 
 
(i)           Each Loan Party shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder (whether of principal, interest, fees or reimbursement of LC Disbursements, or under Section 2.15, 2.16 or 2.17, or otherwise) or under any other Loan Document (except to the extent otherwise provided therein) on the date when due, in immediately available funds, without set-off or counterclaim.  Any amounts received after 12:00 noon, Local Time on any such due 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.  All such payments shall be made to the Administrative Agent at the Administrative Agent’s Account, except as otherwise expressly provided in the relevant Loan Document and except payments to be made directly to an Issuing Lender as expressly provided herein and payments pursuant to Sections 2.15, 2.16, 2.17 and 10.03, which shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto.  The Administrative Agent shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof.  If any payment hereunder 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.

(ii)          Prior to any repayment of any Borrowings hereunder (other than the repayment in full of all outstanding Borrowings on the scheduled date of such repayment), the Borrowers shall select the Borrowing or Borrowings to be paid and shall notify the Administrative Agent by telephone (confirmed by facsimile) of such selection not later than 11:00 a.m., Local Time, three Business Days before the scheduled date of such repayment; provided that each repayment of Borrowings denominated in Dollars shall be applied to repay any outstanding ABR Borrowings before any other Borrowings.  If a Borrower fails to make a timely selection of the Borrowing or Borrowings to be repaid (in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence) or prepaid (in accordance with Section 2.11(d)), such payment shall be applied, first, to pay any outstanding ABR Borrowings and, second, to other Borrowings in the order of the remaining duration of their respective Interest Periods (the Borrowing with the shortest remaining Interest Period to be repaid first).  Each repayment or prepayment of a Revolving Borrowing shall be applied ratably to the Loans included in such Borrowing.

(iii)         All amounts owing under this Agreement are payable in Dollars, except as expressly provided for herein.

(b)           [Reserved].

(c)           Pro Rata Treatment.  Except to the extent otherwise provided herein:  (i) subject to Section 2.03(c), each Revolving Borrowing shall be made from the relevant Lenders and each termination or reduction of the amount of the Commitments under Section 2.09 shall be applied to the respective Commitments of the Lenders, pro rata according to the amounts of their respective Commitments; (ii) each Revolving Borrowing shall be allocated pro rata among the relevant Lenders to such Borrower according to the amounts of their respective Commitments (in the case of the making of Revolving Loans) or their respective Loans that are to be included in such Borrowing (in the case of conversions and continuations of Loans); (iii) each payment or prepayment of principal of Revolving Loans by a Borrower shall be made for the account of the relevant Lenders pro rata in accordance with the respective unpaid principal amounts of the Revolving Loans made to such Borrower held by them; (iv) each payment of interest on Revolving Loans by a Borrower shall be made for the account of the relevant Lenders pro rata in accordance with the amounts of interest on such Loans then due and payable to the respective Lenders and (v) each payment of facility fees under Section 2.12 shall be made for the account of the Lenders pro rata in accordance with the amounts of facility fees then due and payable to the respective Lenders.

(d)           Sharing of Payments by Lenders.  If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of set-off or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on any of its Revolving Loans or participations in LC Disbursements resulting in such Lender receiving payment of a greater proportion of the aggregate amount of its Revolving Loans and participations in LC Disbursements and accrued interest thereon then due than the proportion received by any other Lender, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Revolving Loans and participations in LC Disbursements of other Lenders to the extent necessary so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders ratably in accordance with the aggregate amount of principal of and accrued interest on their respective Revolving Loans and participations in LC Disbursements; 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 any Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement or any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans or participations in LC Disbursements to any assignee or participant, other than to any Borrower or any Subsidiary or Affiliate thereof (as to which the provisions of this paragraph shall apply).  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 set-off 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.

(e)           Presumptions of Payment.  Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Company or the relevant Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of a Lender or an Issuing Lender hereunder that the Company, such Borrower as the case may be, will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Company or such Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to such Lender or such Issuing Lender, as the case may be, the amount due.  In such event, if the Company or such Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the relevant Lenders or the relevant Issuing Lender, as the case may be, severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender or such Issuing Lender 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 Federal Funds Effective Rate (in the case of amounts denominated in Dollars) or the Adjusted Eurocurrency Rate (in the case of amounts denominated in an Alternative Currency) .

(f)            Certain Deductions by the Administrative Agent.  If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.06(e), 2.07(a) or  2.18(e), then the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), apply any amounts thereafter received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender to satisfy such Lender’s obligations under such Sections until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid.

SECTION 2. 19     Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders.

(a)           Designation of a Different Lending Office.  If any Lender or any Issuing Lender requests compensation under Section 2.15, or if any Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender or any Issuing Lender pursuant to Section 2.17, then such Lender or such Issuing Lender shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans, LC Disbursements or participations in LC Disbursements hereunder (as applicable) or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or Affiliates, if, in the judgment of such Lender or such Issuing Lender, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.15 or 2.17, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) would not subject such Lender or such Issuing Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender or such Issuing Lender; provided that, upon any such change in any lending office or assignment, such Lender or such Issuing Lender shall provide or cause to be delivered to the Administrative Agent and the Company (and, if applicable, the relevant Subsidiary Borrower) the appropriate forms specified in and to the extent by Section 2.17.  The Company hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender or any Issuing Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.

- 52 -

(b)           Replacement of Lenders or Issuing Lenders.  If any Lender or any Issuing Lender requests compensation under Section 2.15, if any Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender, any Issuing Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender or any Issuing Lender pursuant to Section 2.17 or if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender or a Non-Extending Lender, then the Company may, at its sole expense and effort, require such Lender or such Issuing Lender (each a “Departing Lender”), upon notice to such Departing Lender and the Administrative Agent, to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 10.04), all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender or another Issuing Lender, if a Lender or Issuing Lender accepts such assignment); provided that (i) the Company shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent and each Issuing Lender (which consent in each case shall not unreasonably be withheld), (ii) the Departing Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans, LC Disbursements and participations in LC Disbursements (as applicable), accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder, from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the relevant Borrower (in the case of all other amounts) and (iii) in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 2.15 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 2.17, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments.  A Departing Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or such Issuing Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Company to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.  Each party hereto agrees that an assignment and delegation required pursuant to this paragraph 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.

SECTION 2.20     Returned Payments.  If after receipt of any payment which is applied to the payment of all or any part of the Borrower Obligations, the Administrative Agent or any Lender is for any reason compelled to surrender such payment or proceeds to any Person because such payment or application of proceeds is invalidated, declared fraudulent, set aside, determined to be void or voidable as a preference, impermissible setoff, or a diversion of trust funds, or for any other reason, then the Borrower Obligations or part thereof intended to be satisfied shall be revived and continued and this Agreement shall continue in full force as if such payment or proceeds had not been received by the Administrative Agent or such Lender.  The provisions of this Section 2.20 shall be and remain effective notwithstanding any contrary action which may have been taken by the Administrative Agent or any Lender in reliance upon such payment or application of proceeds.  The provisions of this Section 2.20 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
- 53 -

 
SECTION 2.21     Designation of Subsidiary Borrowers.
 
(a)           Designation of Subsidiary Borrowers.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this Section (including paragraph (b) of this Section), the Company may, at any time or from time to time upon not less than 20 Business Days’ notice to the Administrative Agent (or such other period which is acceptable to the Administrative Agent), request that a wholly-owned Subsidiary specified in such notice become a party to this Agreement as a Subsidiary Borrower; provided that each such designation shall be subject to the prior approval of the Administrative Agent (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld).  The Administrative Agent shall, upon receipt of such notice from the Company, promptly notify each Lender of the Company’s request to designate a new Subsidiary Borrower; provided that in the case of any such notice from the Company requesting to designate a Foreign Subsidiary as a Subsidiary Borrower, (i) the Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender of such request at least five days prior to granting approval of such designation and (ii) if any Lender notifies the Administrative Agent within five Business Days of such Lender’s receipt of such notice that neither it nor any of its branches or Affiliates is permitted by applicable Requirements of Law to make Loans to, and participate in Letters of Credit for the account of, the relevant Foreign Subsidiary, the Administrative Agent shall withhold its approval of such designation.  Upon such approval and the satisfaction of the conditions specified in paragraph (b) of this Section, such Subsidiary shall become a party to this Agreement as a Subsidiary Borrower and entitled to borrow Loans on and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Lenders of the effectiveness of such designation.

(b)           Conditions Precedent to Designation Effectiveness.  The designation by the Company of any wholly-owned Subsidiary as a Subsidiary Borrower hereunder shall not become effective until the date on which the Administrative Agent shall have received each of the following documents (each of which shall be satisfactory to the Administrative Agent in form and substance):

(i)           Designation Letter.  A Designation Letter, duly completed and executed by the Company and the relevant Subsidiary, delivered to the Administrative Agent at least 5 Business Days before the date on which such Subsidiary is proposed to become a Subsidiary Borrower;

(ii)          Opinion of Counsel.  If requested by the Administrative Agent, a favorable written opinion (addressed to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders and dated the date of the related Designation Letter) of counsel to such Subsidiary satisfactory to the Administrative Agent in the jurisdiction in which such Subsidiary is organized (the “Relevant Jurisdiction”), (and the Company and such Subsidiary Borrower hereby and by delivery of such Designation Letter instruct such counsel to deliver such opinion to the Lenders and the Administrative Agent, if such opinion is so requested), as to such matters as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request (which may include the due incorporation of such Subsidiary under the laws of the Relevant Jurisdiction, the due authorization, execution and delivery by such Subsidiary of such Designation Letter and of any Borrowings to be made by it hereunder, the obtaining of all licenses, approvals and consents of, and the making of all filings and registrations with, any applicable Governmental Authority required in connection therewith (or the absence of any thereof), and the legality, validity and binding effect and enforceability thereof);

(iii)         Corporate Documents.  Such documents and certificates as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request (including certified copies of the organizational documents of such Subsidiary and of resolutions of its board of directors authorizing such Subsidiary Borrower becoming a Borrower hereunder, and of all documents evidencing all other necessary corporate or other action required with respect to such Subsidiary Borrower becoming party to this Agreement); and

- 54 -

(iv)         Other Documents.  Receipt of such other documents relating thereto as the Administrative Agent or its counsel may reasonably request, which may include other documents that are consistent with conditions for Subsidiary Borrowers set forth in Section 4.01.

(c)          Termination of Subsidiary Borrowers.  The Company may, at any time at which no Loans or any other amounts hereunder or under any other Loan Documents shall be outstanding to any Subsidiary Borrower, terminate such Subsidiary Borrower as a Borrower hereunder by delivering an executed notice thereof (each a “Termination Letter”), substantially in the form of Exhibit E, to the Administrative Agent.  Any Termination Letter furnished hereunder shall be effective upon receipt thereof by the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly so notify the relevant Lenders and Issuing Lenders (as applicable)) and all commitments of the relevant Lenders to make Loans to such Subsidiary Borrower and all of rights of such Subsidiary Borrower hereunder shall terminate and such Subsidiary Borrower shall immediately cease to be a Borrower hereunder.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the delivery of a Termination Letter with respect to any Subsidiary Borrower shall not terminate (i) for the avoidance of doubt, any obligation of such Subsidiary Borrower that remains unpaid at the time of such delivery (including any obligation arising thereafter in respect of such Subsidiary Borrower under Section 2.17) or (ii) the obligations of the Company under Article IX with respect to any such unpaid obligations.

SECTION 2.22      Defaulting LendersNotwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then the following provisions shall apply for so long as such Lender is a Defaulting Lender:

(a)            fees shall cease to accrue on the unfunded portion of the Commitment of such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 2.12(a);

(b)           the Commitments and Credit Exposure of such Defaulting Lender shall not be included in determining whether all Lenders or the Required Lenders have taken or may take any action hereunder (including any consent to any amendment or waiver pursuant to Section 10.02), provided that any waiver, amendment or modification requiring the consent of all Lenders or each affected Lender which affects such Defaulting Lender differently than other affected Lenders shall require the consent of such Defaulting Lender;

(c)            if any LC Exposure exists at the time a Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender then:

(i)           all or any part of such LC Exposure of such Defaulting Lender shall be reallocated among the non-Defaulting Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Percentages but only to the extent (x) the sum of the Dollar Equivalent of the outstanding principal amount of all non-Defaulting Lenders’ Revolving Loans (calculated using the Dollar Equivalent of any Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency) plus such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure does not exceed the total of all non-Defaulting Lenders’ Commitments and (y) the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 are satisfied at such time; and

(ii)          if the reallocation described in clause (i) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Borrowers shall within one Business Day following notice by the Administrative Agent cash collateralize such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure (after giving effect to any partial reallocation pursuant to clause (i) above) in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 2.06(k) for so long as such LC Exposure is outstanding;

- 55 -

(iii)         if the Borrowers cash collateralize any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure pursuant to Section 2.22(c), the Borrowers shall not be required to pay any fees to such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 2.12(b) with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure during the period such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure is cash collateralized;

(iv)         if the LC Exposure of the non-Defaulting Lenders is reallocated pursuant to Section 2.22(c), then the fees payable to the Lenders pursuant to Sections 2.12(a) and (b) shall be adjusted in accordance with such non-Defaulting Lenders’ Applicable Percentages; or

(v)          if any Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure is neither cash collateralized nor reallocated pursuant to Section 2.22(c), then, without prejudice to any rights or remedies of the Issuing Lender or any Lender hereunder, all facility fees that otherwise would have been payable to such Defaulting Lender (solely with respect to the portion of such Defaulting Lender’s Commitment that was utilized by such LC Exposure) and letter of credit fees payable under Section 2.12(b) with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s LC Exposure shall be payable to the Issuing Lender until such LC Exposure is cash collateralized and/or reallocated;

(d)           so long as any Lender is a Defaulting Lender, the Issuing Lender shall not be required to issue, amend or increase any Letter of Credit, unless it is satisfied that the related exposure will be 100% covered by the Commitments of the non-Defaulting Lenders and/or cash collateral will be provided by the Borrowers in accordance with Section 2.22(c), and participating interests in any such newly issued or increased Letter of Credit shall be allocated among non-Defaulting Lenders in a manner consistent with Section 2.22(c)(i) and in accordance with their respective Applicable Percentages (and Defaulting Lenders shall not participate therein); and

(e)           any amount payable to such Defaulting Lender hereunder (whether on account of principal, interest, fees or otherwise and including any amount that would otherwise be payable to such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 2.18(d) but excluding Section 2.19) shall, in lieu of being distributed to such Defaulting Lender, be retained by the Administrative Agent in a segregated account and, subject to any applicable Requirement of Law, be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Administrative Agent (i) first, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent hereunder, (ii) second, pro rata, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Issuing Lender hereunder, (iii) third, if so determined by the Administrative Agent or requested by an Issuing Lender, held in such account as cash collateral for future funding obligations of the Defaulting Lender in respect of any existing or future participating interest in any Letter of Credit, (iv) fourth, 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, (v) fifth, if so determined by the Administrative Agent and the Company, held in such account as cash collateral for future funding obligations of the Defaulting Lender in respect of any Loans under this Agreement, (vi) sixth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders or an Issuing Lender as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender or such Issuing Lender against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement, (vii) seventh, to the payment of any amounts owing to any Borrower as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Borrower against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement, and (viii) eighth, to such Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction, provided, with respect to this clause (viii), that if such payment is (x) a prepayment of the principal amount of any Loans or reimbursement obligations in respect of LC Disbursements which a Defaulting Lender has funded its participation obligations and (y) made at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 are satisfied, such payment shall be applied solely to prepay the Loans of, and reimbursement obligations owed to, all non-Defaulting Lenders pro rata prior to being applied to the prepayment of any Loans, or reimbursement obligations owed to, any Defaulting Lender.

- 56 -

If (i) a Bankruptcy Event or a Bail-In Action with respect to a Lender Parent of any Lender shall occur following the date hereof and for so long as such event shall continue or (ii) the Issuing Lender has a good faith belief that any Lender has defaulted in fulfilling its obligations under one or more other agreements in which such Lender commits to extend credit, the Issuing Lender shall not be required to issue, amend or increase any Letter of Credit, unless the Issuing Lender shall have entered into arrangements with the Borrower or such Lender, satisfactory to the Issuing Lender to defease any risk to it in respect of such Lender hereunder.  For purposes of this paragraph, “Bankruptcy Event” means, with respect to any Person, such Person becomes the subject of a bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding, or has had a receiver, conservator, trustee, administrator, custodian, assignee for the benefit of creditors or similar Person charged with the reorganization or liquidation of its business appointed for it, or, in the good faith determination of the Administrative Agent, has taken any action in furtherance of, or indicating its consent to, approval of, or acquiescence in, any such proceeding or appointment, provided that a Bankruptcy Event shall not result solely by virtue of any ownership interest, or the acquisition of any ownership interest, in such Person by a Governmental Authority or instrumentality thereof, provided, further, that such ownership interest does not result in or provide such Person with immunity from the jurisdiction of courts within the United States or from the enforcement of judgments or writs of attachment on its assets or permit such Person (or such Governmental Authority or instrumentality) to reject, repudiate, disavow or disaffirm any contracts or agreements made by such Person.

In the event that the Administrative Agent, the Company and the Issuing Lender each agrees that a Defaulting Lender has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Lender to be a Defaulting Lender, then the LC Exposure of the Lenders shall be readjusted to reflect the inclusion of such Lender’s Commitment and on such date such Lender shall purchase at par such of the Loans of the other Lenders as the Administrative Agent shall determine may be necessary in order for such Lender to hold such Loans in accordance with its Applicable Percentage.

SECTION 2.23      Incremental Revolving Commitments

(a)           The Company and any one or more Lenders (including New Lenders but without the consent of any other Lender) may from time to time agree that such Lenders shall obtain or increase the amount of their Commitments by executing and delivering to the Administrative Agent an Increased Facility Activation Notice specifying (i) the amount of such increase and (ii) the applicable Increased Facility Closing Date.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) without the consent of the Required Lenders, the aggregate amount of incremental Commitments obtained after the Effective Date pursuant to this paragraph shall not exceed $100,000,000 and (ii) without the consent of the Administrative Agent, (x) each increase effected pursuant to this paragraph shall be in a minimum amount of at least $25,000,000 and (y) no more than 4 Increased Facility Closing Dates may be selected by the Company after the Effective Date.  In connection with any increase described in this paragraph, (i) the Company shall provide the Administrative Agent with certificates and legal opinions as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request, (ii) the representations and warranties of the Loan Parties set forth in this Agreement and in the other Loan Documents shall be true and correct on and as of the Increased Facility Closing Date (or, if any such representation or warranty is expressly stated to have been made as of a specific earlier date, as of such specific date) and (iii) at the time of and immediately after giving effect to such increase, no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing.  No Lender shall have any obligation to participate in any increase described in this paragraph unless it agrees to do so in its sole discretion.

- 57 -

(b)           Any additional bank, financial institution or other entity which, with the consent of the Company and the Administrative Agent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), elects to become a “Lender” under this Agreement in connection with any transaction described in Section 2.23(a) shall execute a New Lender Supplement (each, a “New Lender Supplement”), substantially in the form of Exhibit J, whereupon such bank, financial institution or other entity (a “New Lender”) shall become a Lender for all purposes and to the same extent as if originally a party hereto and shall be bound by and entitled to the benefits of this Agreement.

(c)           Unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent, on each Increased Facility Closing Date (i) the Borrowers shall borrow Revolving Loans under the relevant increased Commitments from each Lender participating in the relevant increase in an amount determined by reference to the amount of each Type of Loan (and, in the case of Eurocurrency Loans, of each Eurocurrency Borrowing) which would then have been outstanding from such Lender if (x) each such Type or Eurocurrency Borrowing had been borrowed or effected on such Increased Facility Closing Date and (y) the aggregate amount of each such Type or Eurocurrency Borrowing requested to be so borrowed or effected had been proportionately increased, and (ii) each Lender immediately prior to such increase will automatically and without further act be deemed to have assigned to each New Lender, and each such New Lender will automatically and without further act be deemed to have assumed, a portion of such Lender’s participations hereunder in outstanding Letters of Credit such that, after giving effect to such Commitment increase and each such deemed assignment and assumption of participations, the percentage of the aggregate outstanding participations hereunder in Letters of Credit held by each Lender (including each such New Lender) will equal such Lender’s Applicable Percentage after giving effect to the new Commitments.  The Eurocurrency Rate applicable to any Eurocurrency Loan borrowed pursuant to the preceding sentence shall equal the Eurocurrency Rate then applicable to the Eurocurrency Loans of the other Lenders in the same Eurocurrency Borrowing (or, until the expiration of the then-current Interest Period, such other rate as shall be agreed upon between the applicable Borrower and the relevant Lender).

(d)          Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, each of the parties hereto hereby agrees that, on each Increased Facility Closing Date, this Agreement shall be amended to the extent (but only to the extent) necessary to reflect the existence of the incremental Commitments evidenced thereby.  Any such deemed amendment may be effected in writing by the Company. the Administrative Agent and the Lenders participating in the relevant increase and furnished to the other parties hereto.

(b)           Lender Elections to Extend.  Each Lender, acting in its sole and individual discretion, shall, by notice to the Administrative Agent given not later than the date that is 20 days following the Request Date (the “Notice Deadline”), advise the Administrative Agent whether or not such Lender agrees to such extension (and each Lender that determines not to so extend its Commitment Termination Date (a “Non-Extending Lender”) shall notify the Administrative Agent of such fact promptly after such determination (but in any event no later than the Notice Deadline) and any Lender that does not so advise the Administrative Agent on or before the Notice Deadline shall be deemed to be a Non-Extending Lender.  The election of any Lender to agree to such extension shall not obligate any other Lender to so agree.  Following any extension, the LC Exposure shall continue to be held ratably among the Lenders, but on the Commitment Termination Date applicable to the Loans of any Non-Extending Lender, the LC Exposure of such Non-Extending Lender shall be ratably reallocated, to the extent of the unused Commitments of the extending Lenders, to such extending Lenders (without regard to whether the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 can then be satisfied) and the Borrowers shall cash collateralize the balance of such LC Exposure in accordance with Section 2.06(k). Promptly following the Notice Deadline, the Administrative Agent shall notify the Company of each Lender’s determination under this Section.

- 58 -

(c)            Additional Commitment Lenders.  The Company shall have the right on or before the Existing Termination Date to replace each Non-Extending Lender with, and add as “Lenders” under this Agreement in place thereof, one or more assignees with Commitments terminating on the Extended Commitment Termination Date (each, an “Additional Commitment Lender”) as provided in Section 2.19(b), each of which Additional Commitment Lenders shall have entered into an Assignment and Assumption pursuant to which such Additional Commitment Lender shall undertake a Commitment of such Non-Extending Lender (and, if any such Additional Commitment Lender is already a Lender, its Commitment of such Non-Extending Lender shall be in addition to such Lender’s Commitment hereunder on such date).

(d)           Minimum Extension Requirement.  If (and only if) the total of the Commitments of the Lenders that have agreed so to extend their Commitment Termination Date and the additional Commitments of the Additional Commitment Lenders shall be more than 50% of the aggregate amount of the Commitments in effect immediately prior to the date on which such extension becomes effective, then, effective as of such date, the Commitment Termination Date of each extending Lender and of each Additional Commitment Lender shall be extended to the Extended Commitment Termination Date (except that, if such date is not a Business Day, such Extended Commitment Termination Date shall be the immediately preceding Business Day) and each Additional Commitment Lender shall thereupon become a “Lender” for all purposes of this Agreement.

(e)            Conditions to Effectiveness of Extensions.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the extension of the Commitment Termination Date pursuant to this Section shall not be effective with respect to any Lender unless: (i) at the time of and immediately after giving effect to such extension, no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing; (ii) the representations and warranties of the Loan Parties set forth in this Agreement and in the other Loan Documents shall be true and correct on and as of the date of such extension (or, if any such representation or warranty is expressly stated to have been made as of a specific earlier date, as of such specific date); and (iii) on the Existing Termination Date, each of the Borrowers shall prepay any outstanding Loans of each Non-Extending Lender that has not been replaced as provided in Section 2.24(c) (and pay any additional amounts required pursuant to Section 2.16).

(f)            Issuing Banks.  Each Issuing Bank shall be deemed to be a Lender for purposes of this Section 2.24 with respect to the extension of its LC Commitment.

(g)           Conflicting Provisions.  This Section 2.24 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.18 or 10.02 to the contrary.

- 77 -

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 such Person and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, invest in and generally engage in any kind of business with the Loan Parties or any Subsidiary of a Loan Party or other Affiliate thereof as if it were not the Administrative Agent hereunder.

The Administrative Agent shall not have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, (a) the Administrative Agent shall not be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether a Default has occurred and is continuing, (b) the Administrative Agent 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 in writing as directed by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 10.02), and (c) except as expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents, the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to any Loan Party or any Subsidiary of any Loan Party that is communicated to or obtained by the bank serving as Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity.  Each party hereto agrees that it will not assert any claim against the Administrative Agent based on an alleged breach of fiduciary duty by the Administrative Agent in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby.  The Administrative Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 10.02) or in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct.  The Administrative Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge of any Default unless and until written notice thereof is given to the Administrative Agent by the Company or a Lender, and the Administrative Agent shall not 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, (iv) the adequacy, accuracy or completeness of any information (whether oral or written) set forth herein or therein, or in connection herewith or therewith, (v) the validity, enforceability, adequacy, effectiveness or genuineness of this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any other agreement, instrument or document or (vi) the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Article IV or elsewhere in any Loan Document, other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to the Administrative Agent.

The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely upon, and shall not incur any liability for relying upon, (i) any representation, notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, document or other writing or communication believed by it to be genuine and to have been authorized, signed or sent by the proper Person, (ii) any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to be made or authorized by the proper Person or (iii) any statement made by a director, authorized signatory or employee of any Person regarding any matters which may reasonably be assumed to be within his or her knowledge or within his or her power to verify.  The Administrative Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be counsel for the Company or any of its Subsidiaries), 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.

- 78 -

The Administrative Agent does not warrant the accuracy or completeness of any electronic communications, or the adequacy of any electronic platform and expressly disclaims liability for errors or omissions in any electronic platform and electronic communications. No warranty of any kind, express, implied or statutory, including any warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement of third party rights or freedom from viruses or other code defects, is made by the Administrative Agent in connection with any electronic communications or any electronic platform. In no event shall the Administrative Agent have any liability to any Loan Party, any Lender or any other person or entity for damages of any kind, including direct or indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages, losses or expenses (whether in tort, contract or otherwise) arising out of the Administrative Agent’s transmission of communications through the internet or any electronic platform.

The Administrative Agent may perform any and all its duties and exercise its rights and powers 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 its duties and exercise its rights and powers through their respective Related Parties.  The exculpatory provisions of the preceding paragraphs 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 may resign at any time by notifying the Lenders, the Issuing Lenders and the Company.  Upon any such resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right to appoint a successor with (unless an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing) the prior written consent of the Company (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld).  If no 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, then the retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation shall nonetheless become effective and (1) the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder and (2) the Required Lenders shall perform the duties of the Administrative Agent (and all payments and communications provided to be made by, to or through the Administrative Agent shall instead be made by or to each Lender directly) until such time as the Required Lenders appoint a successor agent as provided for above in this paragraph.  Upon the acceptance of its appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges, obligations and duties of the retiring (or retired) Administrative Agent and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder (if not already discharged therefrom as provided above in this paragraph).  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 Administrative Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article and Section 10.03 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Agent, its sub-agents and their respective Related Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while it was acting as Administrative Agent.

SECTION 9.03      Reinstatement.  The obligations of the Company under this Article shall be automatically reinstated if and to the extent that for any reason any payment by or on behalf of any Subsidiary Borrower in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations is rescinded or must be otherwise restored by any holder of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, whether as a result of any proceedings in bankruptcy or reorganization or otherwise, and the Company agrees that it will indemnify the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Lender and each Lender on demand for all reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable fees of counsel) incurred by the Administrative Agent, such Issuing Lender or such Lender in connection with such rescission or restoration, including any such reasonable costs and expenses incurred in defending against any claim alleging that such payment constituted a preference, fraudulent transfer or similar payment under any bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law.

- 82 -

SECTION 9.05      Remedies.  The Company agrees that, as between the Company on the one hand and the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lenders and the Lenders on the other, the obligations of each Subsidiary Borrower under this Agreement may be declared to be forthwith due and payable as provided in Article VII (and shall be deemed to have become automatically due and payable in the circumstances provided in Article VII ) for purposes of Section 9.01 notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition preventing such declaration (or such obligations from becoming automatically due and payable) as against such Subsidiary Borrower and that, in the event of such declaration (or such obligations being deemed to have become automatically due and payable), such obligations (whether or not due and payable by such Subsidiary Borrower) shall forthwith become due and payable by the Company for purposes of Section 9.01.

(c)           [Reserved].

(d)           If, in connection with any proposed amendment, waiver or consent  requiring the consent of “each Lender” or “each Lender affected thereby”, the consent of the Required Lenders is obtained, but the consent of other necessary Lenders is not obtained (any such Lender whose consent is necessary but not obtained being referred to herein as a “Non-Consenting Lender”), then the Borrowers may elect to replace a Non-Consenting Lender as a Lender party to this Agreement, provided that, concurrently with such replacement, (i) another bank or other entity (other than the Company or any of its Affiliates) which is reasonably satisfactory to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent shall agree, as of such date, (x) to purchase for cash the Loans and other Borrower Obligations due to the Non-Consenting Lender pursuant to an Assignment and Assumption and to become a Lender for all purposes under this Agreement and to assume all obligations of the Non-Consenting Lender to be terminated as of such date, (y) to comply with the requirements of paragraph (b) of Section 10.04 (with the Borrowers or the replacement Lender being responsible for any applicable processing or recordation fee) and (z) to consent to the relevant proposed amendment, and (ii) the Borrowers shall pay to such Non-Consenting Lender in same day funds on the day of such replacement (1) all interest, fees and other amounts then accrued but unpaid to such Non-Consenting Lender by the Borrowers hereunder to and including the date of termination, including without limitation payments due to such Non-Consenting Lender under Sections 2.15 and 2.17, and (2) an amount, if any, equal to the payment which would have been due to such Lender on the day of such replacement under Section 2.16 had the Loans of such Non-Consenting Lender been prepaid on such date rather than sold to the replacement Lender.  Each Lender agrees that an assignment required to be made by it pursuant to this paragraph may be effected pursuant to an Assignment and Assumption executed by the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the assignee and that the Lender required to make such assignment need not be a party thereto.

(c)            Reimbursement by Lenders.  To the extent that the Loan Parties fail to pay any amount required to be paid by them to the Administrative Agent or any Issuing Lender under paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section, each Lender severally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent or such Issuing Lender, as the case may be, 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 the case may be, was incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent or such Issuing Lender in its capacity as such.

(d)           Waiver of Consequential Damages, Etc.  To the extent permitted by applicable law, no Loan Party shall assert, and each hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (including exemplary damages and as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the Transactions, any Loan or Letter of Credit or the use of the proceeds thereof.

(i)            Any Lender may, without the consent of any Loan Party, the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Lender or any other Lender, sell participations to one or more banks or other entities (a “Participant”) in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (including all or a portion of its Commitment and the Loans owing to it); provided that (A) such Lender’s obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall remain unchanged, (B) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations and (C) the Loan Parties, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lenders 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 and the other Loan Documents.  For the avoidance of doubt, each Lender shall be responsible for the indemnity under Section 2.17(e) with respect to any payments made by such Lender to its Participant(s).  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 the other Loan Documents 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 10.02(b) that affects such Participant.  Subject to paragraph (c)(i) of this Section, the Borrowers agree that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits and subject to the limitations of Sections 2.15, 2.16 and 2.17 to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section.  To the extent permitted by law, each Participant of which the Company has been given prior written notice also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 10.08 as though it were a Lender, provided that such Participant agrees to be subject to Sections 2.18(d) and 2.19 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 Borrowers, 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 (the “Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register to any Person (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 any Loan Document) 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.

- 90 -

(ii)           A Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 2.15, 2.16 or 2.17 than the relevant Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such Participant, unless the sale of the participation to such Participant is made with the Company’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) or except to the extent such entitlement to receive a greater payment results from an adoption of or any Change in Law that occurs after the Participant acquired the applicable participation; provided that the Participant complies with all obligations under or relating to Section 2.18(d) and Section 2.19, in all cases as though it were a Lender.

(d)           Certain Pledges.  Any Lender may 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 such pledge or assignment to a Federal Reserve Bank, and this Section 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 assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.

(e)            No Assignments to the Company or Affiliates.  Anything in this Section to the contrary notwithstanding, no Lender may assign or participate any interest in any Loan or LC Exposure held by it hereunder to the Company or any of its Affiliates or Subsidiaries without the prior consent of each Lender.

SECTION 10.05    Survival.  All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made by the Loan Parties herein and in the certificates or other instruments delivered in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement or any other Loan Document (including the Designation Letters) 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 and issuance of any Letters of Credit, regardless of any investigation made by any such other party or on its behalf and notwithstanding that the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Lender or any Lender may have had notice or knowledge of any Default or incorrect representation or warranty at the time 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 or any Letter of Credit is outstanding and so long as the Commitments have not expired or terminated.  The provisions of Sections 2.15, 2.16, 2.17, 10.03 and 10.12 and Article VIII shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the consummation of the Transactions, the repayment of the Loans, the expiration or termination of the Letters of Credit and the Commitments or the termination of this Agreement or any provision hereof.

SECTION 10.06    Counterparts; Integration; Effectiveness.  This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto on different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract.  This Agreement, the other Loan Documents and any separate letter agreements with respect to fees payable to the Administrative Agent constitute the entire contract between and 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 which, 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 assigns.  Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page to this Agreement by facsimile shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement.

SECTION 10.07    Severability.  Any provision of this any Loan Document 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 thereof; and the invalidity of a particular provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate such provision in any other jurisdiction.

- 91 -

SECTION 10.08    Right of Setoff.  If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, each Lender and each of its Affiliates is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) at any time held and other obligations at any time owing by such Lender or Affiliate to or for the credit or the account of any Loan Party against any of and all the Obligations held by such Lender, irrespective of whether or not such Lender shall have made any demand under the Loan Documents and although such obligations may be unmatured.  The rights of each Lender under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of setoff) which such Lender may have.

SECTION 10.09    Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Judicial Proceedings; Etc.

(c)           Waiver of Venue.  Each of the Loan Parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent it may legally and effectively do so, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action 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.  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.
