Item 1.01 – Entry Into a Material Agreement

On October 2, 2022, Snap One Holdings Corp. (the “Company”) entered into an Incremental Agreement (the “Incremental Agreement”) with the lenders party thereto and Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc., as administrative agent (the “Administrative Agent”). The Incremental Agreement amended the Credit Agreement, dated as of December 8, 2021 (the “Existing Credit Agreement”), among the Company, the lenders party thereto from time to time, the Administrative Agent and the other parties party thereto (as amended by the Incremental Agreement, the “Amended Credit Agreement”). The Incremental Agreement will further increase the Company’s liquidity and will allow the Company additional flexibility to invest in organic or inorganic growth, or use for general corporate purposes.

The Incremental Agreement (i) provides for incremental term loans (the “Incremental Term Loans”) under the Existing Credit Agreement in an aggregate principal amount of $55,000,000, which Incremental Term Loans will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to, at the Company’s option, either (1) an applicable margin of 5.75% plus a base rate determined by reference to the highest of (a) 0.50% per annum plus the Federal Funds Effective Rate (as defined in the Existing Credit Agreement), (b) the Prime Rate (as defined in the Existing Credit Agreement) and (c) the forward-looking term rate based on the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) for an interest period of one month, plus 1.00%; provided that such rate is not lower than a floor of 1.00% or (2) an applicable margin of 6.75% plus the forward-looking term rate based on SOFR for the interest period relevant to such borrowing; provided that such rate is not lower than a floor of 0.50% and (ii) makes certain other corresponding technical changes to the Existing Credit Agreement to facilitate the incurrence of the Incremental Term Loans. The Incremental Term Loans mature on the third anniversary of the funding date of the Incremental Term Loans. The funding date of the Incremental Term Loans is expected to occur by October 6, 2022.

Other than as described above, the parties to the Amended Credit Agreement continue to have the same obligations set forth in the Existing Credit Agreement.

The foregoing description of the Incremental Agreement and the Amended Credit Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the full text of the Incremental Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.

For the avoidance of doubt, if the Borrower has made an LCT Election and any of the ratios, calculations or baskets for which compliance was determined or tested as of the LCT Test Date are exceeded as a result of fluctuations in any such ratio, calculation or basket, including due to fluctuations in Consolidated EBITDA or Consolidated Total Assets of the Borrower, the target company or the Person subject to such Limited Condition Transaction, on or prior to the date of consummation of the relevant transaction or action, such baskets, calculations or ratios will not be deemed to have been exceeded as a result of such fluctuations and such baskets, ratios or financial metrics shall not be tested at the consummation of the Limited Condition Transaction except as contemplated in clause (a) of the immediately succeeding proviso; provided, however, that, (a) if financial statements for one or more subsequent Test Periods shall have become available, the Testing Party may elect, in its sole discretion, to re-determine all such baskets, ratios and financial metrics on the basis of such financial statements, in which case such date of redetermination shall thereafter be deemed to be the applicable LCT Test Date, (b) if any ratios or financial metrics improve or baskets increase as a result of such fluctuations, such improved ratios, financial metrics or baskets may be utilized and (c) Consolidated Interest Expense with respect to any Indebtedness expected to be Incurred in connection with such Limited Condition Transaction will, for purposes of the Consolidated EBITDA to Fixed Charges Ratio, be calculated using an assumed interest rate based on the available documentation therefor, as determined by the Testing Party in good faith. If the Testing Party has made an LCT Election for any Limited Condition Transaction, then, in connection with any subsequent calculation of the ratios, baskets or financial metrics on or following the relevant LCT Test Date and prior to the earlier of (i) the date on which such Limited Condition Transaction is consummated or (ii) the date that the letter of intent, definitive agreement, notice or declaration for such Limited Condition Transaction is abandoned, terminated or expires without consummation of such Limited Condition Transaction, any such ratio, basket or financial metric shall be calculated on a pro forma basis assuming such Limited Condition Transaction and other transactions in connection therewith (including any Incurrence of Indebtedness or Liens and the use of proceeds thereof) have been consummated. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Testing Party has exercised its option pursuant to the foregoing and any Default or Event of Default occurs following the LCT Test Date (including any new LCT Test Date) for the applicable Limited Condition Transaction and prior to or on the date of the consummation of such Limited Condition Transaction, any such Default or Event of Default shall be deemed not to have occurred or be continuing for purposes of determining whether any action being taken in connection with such Limited Condition Transaction is permitted under this Agreement. If the Borrower has made an LCT Election for any Limited Condition Transaction, then in connection with any subsequent calculation of any ratio, calculation or test with respect to the Incurrence of Indebtedness or Liens, or the making of distributions or Restricted Payments, Investments, payments pursuant to Section 10.7, Dispositions, mergers, Dispositions of all or substantially all of the assets of the Borrower or the designation of an Unrestricted Subsidiary on or following the relevant LCT Test Date and prior to the earlier of the date on which such Limited Condition Transaction is consummated or the date that the letter of intent, definitive agreement, notice or declaration for such Limited Condition Transaction is abandoned, terminated or expires without consummation of such Limited Condition Transaction, any such ratio, calculation or test shall be calculated on a pro forma basis assuming such Limited Condition Transaction and other transactions in connection therewith (including any -99- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
Incurrence of Indebtedness and the use of proceeds thereof) have been consummated. 1.12 Pro Forma and Other Calculations. (a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, but subject to Section 1.11 and clauses (h) and (i) below, financial ratios, calculations and tests (including measurements of baskets and other calculations calculated on the basis of Consolidated Total Assets, Consolidated Net Income, Consolidated EBITDA, Fixed Charges and any Fixed Amount or Incurrence-Based Amount), including the Consolidated EBITDA to Fixed Charges Ratio, Consolidated First Lien Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio, Consolidated Secured Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio and Consolidated Total Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio shall be calculated in the manner prescribed by this Section 1.12; provided that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in clauses (b), (c), (d) or (e) of this Section 1.12, when calculating the Consolidated First Lien Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio for purposes of (i) the definition of “Applicable Margin” and the “Commitment Fee Rate”, (ii) calculating the covenant in Section 10.10 and (iii) Section 5.2(a)(ii), the events described in this Section 1.12 that occurred subsequent to the end of the applicable Test Period shall not be given pro forma effect; provided, however, that, for purposes of any determination under the proviso to Section 5.2(a)(ii), Consolidated First Lien Debt shall be determined after giving pro forma effect to (A) the aggregate principal amount of (1) Term Loans voluntarily prepaid pursuant to Section 5.1, (2) secured Permitted Additional Debt, secured Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness and secured Term Loan Exchange Notes (and any secured Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness in respect of any thereof) voluntarily prepaid, repurchased, defeased, acquired or redeemed, (B) the aggregate principal amount of Term Loans assigned to any Purchasing Borrower Party pursuant to Section 13.6(g), secured Permitted Additional Debt, secured Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness and secured Term Loan Exchange Notes (and any secured Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness in respect of any thereof), in each such case assigned to any Purchasing Borrower Party (or any similar term as defined in the documentation governing such secured Permitted Additional Debt, secured Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness or secured Term Loan Exchange Notes) pursuant to the documentation governing such secured Permitted Additional Debt, secured Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness or secured Term Loan Exchange Notes (or, in each case, in accordance with the corresponding provisions of the documentation governing any Indebtedness representing secured Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness in respect thereof), but only to the extent that such Term Loans, such Permitted Additional Debt, such secured Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness or such secured Term Loan Exchange Notes, (or such Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness in respect thereof), as applicable, have been cancelled and (C) the aggregate amount of all permanent reductions of Revolving Credit Commitments, Extended Revolving Credit Commitments, Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments pursuant to Section 4.2 (for the avoidance of doubt, excluding any such commitment reductions required by the proviso to Section 2.14(b) or in connection with the Incurrence of any Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness Incurred to Refinance any Revolving Credit Commitments, Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments and/or Extended Revolving Credit Commitments), in each case of this clause (C), (x) except to the extent financed by the Incurrence of long term Indebtedness (including, for the avoidance of doubt, any such Indebtedness Incurred under a revolving credit facility Incurred as Permitted Additional Debt or otherwise Incurred under Section 2.14) by, or the issuance of Capital Stock by, or the making of capital contributions to, any member of the Restricted Group or using the proceeds of any Disposition outside the ordinary course of business and (y) after the end of the Borrower’s most recently ended full fiscal year and prior to the date of the applicable payment to be made pursuant to such Section 5.2(a)(ii) assuming such payment had been made on the last day of such fiscal year. In addition, whenever a financial ratio, calculation or test is to be calculated on a pro forma basis or requires pro forma compliance, the reference to “Test Period” for purposes of calculating such financial ratio or test shall be deemed to be a reference to, and shall be based on, the most recently ended Test Period for which Internal Financial Statements are available and may be determined with reference to the financial statements of a Parent Entity of the Borrower instead, so long as such Parent Entity does not hold any material assets other than, directly or indirectly, the Capital Stock of the Borrower (as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors or senior management of the Borrower (or any Parent Entity)). (b) For purposes of calculating any financial ratio, calculation or test that is to be calculated on a pro forma basis (including measurements of baskets and other calculations on the basis of Consolidated Total Assets, Consolidated Net Income or Consolidated EBITDA, Fixed Charges or any Fixed Amount or Incurrence-Based Amount), the Transactions, Specified Transactions and/or Specified Restructurings (with any Incurrence or Refinancing of any Indebtedness in connection therewith to be subject to clause (d) of this Section 1.12) that have -100- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
been made (i) during the applicable Test Period or (ii) subsequent to such Test Period and prior to or simultaneously with the event for which the calculation of any such ratio is made shall be calculated on a pro forma basis assuming that the Transactions and all such Specified Transactions and/or Specified Restructurings (and any increase or decrease in Consolidated EBITDA and the component financial definitions used therein attributable to the Transactions, and to any Specified Transaction or Specified Restructuring) had occurred on the first day of the applicable Test Period, (or, in the case of Consolidated Total Assets or “unrestricted” cash and cash equivalents, on the last day of the applicable Test Period). If, since the beginning of any applicable Test Period, any Person that subsequently became a Restricted Subsidiary or was merged, amalgamated or consolidated with or into the Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary since the beginning of such Test Period shall have made any Specified Transaction and/or Specified Restructurings that would have required adjustment pursuant to this Section 1.12, then such financial ratio, calculation or test (including measurements of baskets and other calculations on the basis of Consolidated Total Assets, Consolidated EBITDA, Fixed Charges or any Fixed Amount or Incurrence-Based Amount) shall be calculated to give pro forma effect thereto in accordance with this Section 1.12. (c) Whenever pro forma effect or a determination of pro forma compliance is to be given to a Specified Transaction or a Specified Restructuring, the pro forma calculations shall be made in good faith by an Authorized Officer of the Borrower and may include, for the avoidance of doubt, the amount of Run Rate Benefits related to Run Rate Initiatives projected by the Borrower in good faith to result from or relating to any Specified Transaction (including the Transactions) or Specified Restructuring that is being given pro forma effect or for which a determination of pro forma compliance is being made that have been realized or are expected to be realized and for which the actions necessary to realize such Run Rate Benefits have been taken or initiated, have been committed to be taken or initiated, with respect to which substantial steps have been taken or initiated or which are expected to be taken or initiated (in the good faith determination of the Borrower) (calculated on a pro forma basis as though such Run Rate Benefits had been realized on the first day of such period and as if such Run Rate Benefits were realized during the entirety of such period and “run rate” means the full recurring benefit for a period that is associated with any action taken or initiated, any action committed to be taken or initiated, any action with respect to which substantial steps have been taken or initiated or any action that is expected to be taken or initiated (including any savings expected to result from the elimination of Public Company Costs, if any) net of the amount of actual benefits realized during such period from such actions, and any such Run Rate Benefits shall be included in the initial pro forma calculations of such financial ratios or tests and during any subsequent Test Period in which the effects thereof are expected to be realized) relating to such Specified Transaction or Specified Transaction, and any such Run Rate Benefits included in the initial pro forma calculations shall continue to apply to subsequent calculations of such financial ratios or tests, including during any subsequent Test Periods in which the effects thereof are expected to be realizable; provided that (A) such Run Rate Benefits are reasonably identifiable in the good faith judgment of the Borrower, (B) such actions are taken or initiated, such actions are committed to be taken or initiated, substantial steps with respect to such action have been taken or initiated or such actions are expected to be taken or initiated no later than twelve fiscal quarters after the date of consummation of the Transactions, such Specified Transaction or the date of initiation of such Specified Restructuring and (C) no Run Rate Benefits shall be added to the extent duplicative of any amounts that are otherwise added back in computing Consolidated EBITDA (or any other components thereof), whether through a pro forma adjustment or otherwise, with respect to such period. (d) In the event that the Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary Incurs (including by assumption or guarantee) or Refinances (including by redemption, repurchase, repayment, retirement or extinguishment) any Indebtedness (other than normal fluctuations in revolving Indebtedness Incurred for working capital purposes), in each case included in the calculations of any financial ratio or test that is to be calculated on a pro forma basis, (i) during the applicable Test Period or (ii) subsequent to the end of the applicable Test Period and prior to or simultaneously with the event for which the calculation of any such ratio is made, then such financial ratio or test shall be calculated giving pro forma effect to such Incurrence or Refinancing of Indebtedness (including pro forma effect to the application of the net proceeds therefrom), in each case to the extent required, as if the same had occurred on the last day of the applicable Test Period (except in the case of the Consolidated EBITDA to Fixed Charges Ratio (or similar ratio), in which case such Incurrence or Refinancing of Indebtedness will be given effect, as if the same had occurred on the first day of the applicable Test Period). With respect to Indebtedness Incurred under a revolving credit facility, reborrowings of amounts previously repaid pursuant to “cash sweep” provisions or any similar provisions under such revolving credit facility that provide that Indebtedness is deemed to be repaid -101- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
daily (or otherwise periodically) (other than any such amounts reducing the commitments under such revolving credit facility) shall, subject to the Borrower’s option to elect otherwise pursuant to Section 1.12(l), only be deemed to have been Incurred on the date such Indebtedness was first Incurred and not on the date of any subsequent reborrowing thereof. For the avoidance of doubt, the outstanding principal amount of any particular Indebtedness shall be counted only once, and guarantees of, or obligations in respect of letters of credit relating to, Indebtedness that is otherwise included in the determination of a particular amount of Indebtedness shall not be included in the determination of such amount of Indebtedness. (e) If any Indebtedness bears a floating rate of interest and is being given pro forma effect, the interest on such Indebtedness shall be calculated as if the rate in effect on the date of the event for which the calculation of the Consolidated EBITDA to Fixed Charges Ratio is made had been the applicable rate for the entire period (taking into account any interest Hedging Agreements applicable to such Indebtedness). To the extent interest expense generated by Hedging Obligations that have been terminated is included in Consolidated Interest Expense prior to the date of the event for which the calculation of the Consolidated EBITDA to Fixed Charges Ratio is being made, Consolidated Interest Expense shall be adjusted to exclude such expense. Interest on a Financing Lease Obligation shall be deemed to accrue at an interest rate reasonably determined by an Authorized Officer of the Borrower to be the rate of interest implicit in such Financing Lease Obligation in accordance with GAAP. Interest on Indebtedness that may optionally be determined at an interest rate based upon a factor of a prime or similar rate, a eurocurrency interbank offered rate, or other rate, shall be determined to have been based upon the rate actually chosen, or if none, then based upon such optional rate chosen as the Borrower or applicable Restricted Subsidiary may designate. For purposes of making the computations referred to above, interest on any Indebtedness under a revolving credit facility computed on a pro forma basis shall be computed based upon the average daily balance of such Indebtedness during the applicable period or, if lower, the maximum commitments under such revolving credit facility as of the date of the event for which the calculation of the Consolidated EBITDA to Fixed Charges Ratio is being made, except as set forth in Section 1.12(d). (f) For purposes hereof, the “maximum fixed repurchase price” of any Disqualified Capital Stock or Preferred Stock that does not have a fixed repurchase price shall be calculated in accordance with the terms of such Disqualified Capital Stock or Preferred Stock as if such Disqualified Capital Stock or Preferred Stock were purchased on any date on which Consolidated Total Debt shall be required to be determined pursuant to this Agreement, and if such price is based upon, or measured by, the Fair Market Value of such Disqualified Capital Stock or Preferred Stock, such Fair Market Value shall be determined in good faith by the Board of Directors or senior management of such Person. (g) Any such pro forma calculation may include, without limitation, (1) all adjustments of the type described in clauses (I) through (III) of the proviso to the definition of “Consolidated EBITDA” to the extent such adjustments, without duplication, continue to be applicable to such Test Period, and (2) adjustments calculated in accordance with Regulation S-X under the Securities Act. (h) For purposes of determining the permissibility of any action, change, transaction or event that requires a calculation of any Fixed Amount, Incurrence-Based Amount or, except as described in Section 1.12(a), any other financial ratio, test, covenant, calculation or measurement (including, without limitation, any Consolidated First Lien Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio test, any Consolidated Secured Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio test, any Consolidated Total Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio test, any Consolidated EBITDA to Fixed Charges Ratio test, unrestricted cash and cash equivalents and the amount of Consolidated EBITDA, Consolidated Net Income, Fixed Charges and/or Consolidated Total Assets), such Fixed Amount, Incurrence-Based Amount or other financial ratio, test, covenant, calculation or measurement shall be calculated at the time such action is taken (subject to Section 1.11), such change is made, such transaction is consummated or such event occurs, as the case may be, and no Default or Event of Default shall be deemed to have occurred solely as a result of a change in such Fixed Amount, Incurrence-Based Amount or other financial ratio, test, covenant, calculation or measurement occurring after the time such action is taken, such change is made, such transaction is consummated or such event occurs, as the case may be. (i) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, unless the Borrower otherwise notifies the Administrative Agent, (i) with respect to any amounts Incurred or transactions entered into (or consummated) in -102- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
reliance on a provision of this Agreement (including any covenant or the definition of Incremental Base Amount) that does not require compliance with a financial ratio or test (including any Consolidated First Lien Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio test, any Consolidated Secured Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio test, any Consolidated Total Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio test and/or any Consolidated EBITDA to Fixed Charges Ratio test) (any such amounts, the “Fixed Amounts”) substantially concurrently, simultaneously or contemporaneously with any amounts Incurred or transactions entered into (or consummated) in reliance on a provision of this Agreement that requires compliance with a financial ratio or test (including, amounts Incurred under the Incremental Ratio Debt Amount) any Consolidated First Lien Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio test, any Consolidated Secured Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio test, any Consolidated Total Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio test and/or any Consolidated EBITDA to Fixed Charges Ratio test) (any such amounts, the “Incurrence-Based Amounts”), it is understood and agreed that the Fixed Amounts (including amounts Incurred under the Incremental Base Amount) shall be disregarded in the calculation of the financial ratio or test applicable to the Incurrence-Based Amounts (including amounts Incurred under the Incremental Ratio Debt Amount), (ii) the Incurrence of the Incurrence-Based Amount shall be calculated first without giving effect to any Fixed Amount but giving full pro forma effect to the use of proceeds of such Fixed Amount and the related transactions and (iii) the Incurrence of the Fixed Amount shall be calculated thereafter. Unless the Borrower elects otherwise, the Borrower shall be deemed to have used amounts under an Incurrence-Based Amount then available to the Borrower prior to utilization of any amount under a Fixed Amount then available to the Borrower. (j) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, except to the extent expressly required to be calculated otherwise in Section 2.14 or Section 10.1(o), for any Additional /Replacement Revolving Credit Facility, in the event an item of Indebtedness (or any portion thereof) is Incurred, any Lien is Incurred or other transaction is undertaken in reliance on an Incurrence-Based Amount, such Incurrence-Based Amount shall be calculated without regard to the Incurrence of any Indebtedness under any revolving facility, delayed draw facility or letter of credit facility immediately prior to, simultaneously or contemporaneously with, or in connection therewith. (k) Whenever pro forma effect is to be given to a pro forma event, the pro forma calculations shall be made in good faith by an Authorized Officer of the Borrower and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, so long as an action was taken (or not taken) in reliance upon a basket, ratio or test under this Agreement that was calculated or determined in good faith by an Authorized Officer of the Borrower based upon financial information available to such officer at such time and such action (or inaction) was permitted under this Agreement at the time of such calculation or determination, any subsequent restatement, modification or adjustments made to such financial information (including any restatement, modification or adjustment that would have caused such basket, ratio or test to be exceeded as a result of such action or inaction) shall not result in any Default or Event of Default under this Agreement. (l) For purposes of the calculation of the Consolidated First Lien Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio, the Consolidated Secured Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio, the Consolidated Total Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio and/or the Consolidated EBITDA to Fixed Charges Ratio in connection with the entering into or increase of commitments under any a revolving credit, delayed draw facility or other similar committed facility such Person may elect, pursuant to a certificate of an Authorized Officer of the Borrower delivered to the Administrative Agent, to treat all or any portion of the commitment (such amount elected until revoked as described below, the “Elected Amount”) under any such Indebtedness which is to be Incurred (or any commitment in respect thereof) or secured by such Lien (whether by the Borrower, its Restricted Subsidiaries or any third party), as the case may be, as being Incurred or secured, as the case may be, as of the date such certificate is delivered and (i) any subsequent Incurrence of such Indebtedness or such Lien under such commitment that was so treated (so long as the total amount under such Indebtedness does not exceed the Elected Amount) shall not be deemed, for purposes of this calculation, to be an Incurrence of additional Indebtedness or an additional Lien at such subsequent time, (ii) such Person may revoke an election of an Elected Amount pursuant to a certificate of an Authorized Officer of the Borrower delivered to the Administrative Agent and (iii) at all times thereafter, for subsequent calculations of the Consolidated First Lien Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio, the Consolidated Secured Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio, the Consolidated Total Debt to Consolidated EBITDA Ratio and/or the Consolidated EBITDA to Fixed Charges Ratio test, the Elected Amount (if any) shall be deemed to be outstanding, whether or not such amount is actually outstanding. -103- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
1.13 Cashless Rollovers. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement or in any other Credit Document, to the extent that any Lender extends the maturity date of, or replaces, renews or Refinances, any of its then-existing Loans or Commitments with Term Loans, Incremental Commitments, Incremental Facilities, Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness, Loans in connection with any Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Facility, Extended Term Loans, Extended Revolving Credit Facility Loans or loans Incurred under a new credit facility, in each case, to the extent such extension, replacement, renewal or Refinancing is effected by means of a “cashless roll” by such Lender pursuant to settlement mechanisms approved by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and such Lender, such extension, replacement, renewal or Refinancing shall be deemed to comply with any requirement hereunder or any other Credit Document that such payment be made “in Dollars”, “in immediately available funds”, “in Cash” or any other similar requirement.

(c) Each Lender may at its option make any Fixed Rate Loan by causing any domestic or foreign branch or Affiliate of such Lender to make such Fixed Rate Loan; provided that (i) any exercise of such option shall not affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay such Fixed Rate Loan and (ii) in exercising such option, such Lender shall use its reasonable efforts to minimize any increased costs to the Borrower resulting therefrom (which obligation of the Lender shall not require it to take, or refrain from taking, actions that it determines would result in increased costs for which it will not be compensated hereunder or that it determines would be otherwise disadvantageous to it and in the event of such request for costs for which compensation is provided under this Agreement, the provisions of Section 2.10 shall apply). (d) (i) Subject to and upon the terms and conditions herein set forth, the Swingline Lender in its individual capacity agrees, at any time and from time to time on and after the Closing Date and prior to the Swingline Maturity Date, to make a loan or loans (each, a “Swingline Loan”) to the Borrower in Dollars, which Swingline Loans (A) shall be ABR Loans, (B) shall have the benefit of the provisions of Section 2.1(d)(ii), (C) shall not exceed at any time outstanding the Swingline Commitment, (D) shall not, after giving pro forma effect thereto and to the application of the proceeds thereof, result at any time in the aggregate amount of all Lenders’ Revolving Credit Exposures exceeding the Total Revolving Credit Commitment then in effect, (E) may be repaid and reborrowed in accordance with the provisions hereof and (F) shall mature no later than the date ten Business Days after such Swingline Loan is made. On the Swingline Maturity Date, all outstanding Swingline Loans shall be repaid in full. The Swingline Lender shall not make any Swingline Loan after receiving a written notice from either the Borrower or the Administrative Agent stating that a Default or an Event of Default exists and is continuing until such time as the Swingline Lender shall have received written notice (x) of rescission of all such notices from the party or parties originally delivering such notice, (y) of the waiver of such Default or Event of Default in accordance with the provisions of Section 13.1 or (z) from the Administrative Agent that such Default or Event of Default is no longer continuing.

Each Revolving Credit Lender hereby irrevocably agrees to make such Revolving Credit Loans upon same Business Days’ notice pursuant to each Mandatory Borrowing in the amount and in the manner specified in the preceding sentence and on the date specified to it in writing by the Swingline Lender notwithstanding (i) that the amount of the Mandatory Borrowing may not comply with the minimum amount for each Borrowing specified in Section 2.2, (ii) whether any conditions specified in Section 7 are then satisfied, (iii) whether a Default or an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, (iv) the date of such Mandatory Borrowing or (v) any reduction in the Total Revolving Credit Commitment after any such Swingline Loans were made. In the event that, in the sole judgment of the Swingline Lender, any Mandatory Borrowing cannot for any reason be made on the date otherwise required above (including as a result of the commencement of a proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law in respect of the Borrower), each Revolving Credit Lender hereby agrees that it shall forthwith purchase from the Swingline Lender (without recourse or warranty) such participation of the outstanding Swingline Loans as shall be necessary to cause each such Lender to share in such Swingline Loans ratably based upon their respective Revolving Credit Commitment Percentages; provided that all principal and interest payable on such Swingline Loans shall be for the account of the Swingline Lender until the date the respective participation is purchased and, to the extent attributable to the purchased participation, shall be payable to the Lender purchasing the same from and after such date of purchase. (iii) The Borrower may, at any time and from time to time, designate as additional Swingline Lenders one or more applicable Revolving Credit Lenders that agree to serve in such capacity as provided below.

2.4 Disbursement of Funds. (a) No later than the later of 12:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the date specified in each Notice of Borrowing (including Mandatory Borrowings and Borrowings to reimburse Unpaid Drawings under Letters of Credit) and one hour after written notice of such Borrowing is delivered by the Administrative Agent to such Lender, each Lender will make available its pro rata portion, if any, of each Borrowing requested to be made on such date in the manner provided below; provided that, on the Closing Date (or, with respect to any Incremental Facilities, on the relevant Incremental Facilities Closing Date), such funds may be made available at such earlier time as may be agreed among the relevant Lenders, the Borrower and the Administrative Agent for the purpose of consummating the Transactions; provided, further, that all Swingline Loans shall be made available to the Borrower in the full amount thereof by the Swingline Lender no later than one hour after written notice of such Borrowing is delivered by the Administrative Agent to the Swingline Lender. (b) (i) Each Lender shall make available all such requested amounts it is to fund to the Borrower under any Borrowing for its applicable Commitments in immediately available funds to the Administrative Agent at the Administrative Agent’s Office and the Administrative Agent will (except in the case of Mandatory Borrowings and Borrowings to repay Unpaid Drawings under Letters of Credit) make available to the Borrower by depositing to an account designated by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent in writing, the aggregate of the amounts so made available in Dollars or such other applicable Alternative Currency. Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified in writing by any Lender prior to the date of any such Borrowing that such Lender does not intend to make available to the Administrative Agent its portion of the Borrowing or Borrowings to be made on such date, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such amount available to the Administrative Agent on such date of Borrowing, and the Administrative Agent, in reliance upon such assumption, may (in its sole discretion and without any obligation to do so) make available to the Borrower a corresponding amount. If such corresponding amount is not in fact made available to the Administrative Agent by such Lender and the Administrative Agent has made available same to the Borrower, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover such corresponding amount from such Lender. If such Lender does not pay such corresponding amount forthwith upon the Administrative Agent’s demand therefor, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Borrower, and the Borrower shall immediately pay such corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent in Dollars or such other applicable Alternative Currency. The Administrative Agent shall also be entitled to recover from such Lender or the Borrower, as the case may be, interest on such corresponding amount in respect of each day from the date such corresponding amount was made available by the Administrative Agent to the Borrower to the date such corresponding amount is recovered by the Administrative Agent, at a rate per annum equal to (i) if paid by such Lender, the Federal Funds Effective Rate, or (ii) if paid by the Borrower, the then-applicable rate of interest, calculated in accordance with Section 2.8, for the respective Loans (or, in the case of Alternative Currency Loans, the cost to the Administrative Agent of acquiring overnight funds in such Alternative Currency, as the case may be). If the Borrower and such Lender shall pay such interest to the Administrative Agent for the same or an overlapping period, the Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to the Borrower the amount of such interest paid by the Borrower for such period. If such Lender pays its share of the applicable Borrowing to the Administrative Agent, then the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing. (ii) The Swingline Lender shall make available all amounts it is to fund to the Borrower under any Borrowing of Swingline Loans in immediately available funds to the Borrower (as specified in the applicable Notice of Borrowing), by depositing to an account designated by the Borrower to the Swingline Lender in writing or otherwise in such Notice of Borrowing, the aggregate of the amount so made available. (c) Nothing in this Section 2.4, including any payment by the Borrower, shall be deemed to relieve any Lender from its obligation to fulfill its commitments hereunder or to prejudice any rights that the Borrower may have against any Lender as a result of any default by such Lender hereunder (it being understood, however, that no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to fulfill its commitments hereunder). 2.5 Repayment of Loans; Evidence of Debt.

(c) In the event any Incremental Term Loans are made, such Incremental Term Loans shall mature and be repaid in amounts and on dates as agreed between the Borrower and the relevant Lenders of such Incremental Term Loans in the applicable Incremental Agreement, subject to the requirements set forth in Section 2.14. In the event that any Extended Term Loans are established, such Extended Term Loans shall, subject to the requirements of Section 2.15, mature and be repaid by the Borrower in the amounts (each such amount, an “Extended Term Loan Repayment Amount”) and on the dates (each an “Extended Repayment Date”) set forth in the applicable Extension Agreement. In the event any Extended Revolving Credit Commitments are established, such Extended Revolving Credit Commitments shall, subject to the requirements of Section 2.15, be terminated (and all Extended Revolving Credit Loans of the same Extension Series repaid) on dates set forth in the applicable Extension Agreement. (d) Each Lender shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice an account or accounts evidencing the indebtedness of the Borrower to the appropriate lending office of such Lender resulting from each Loan made by such lending office of such Lender from time to time, including the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid to such lending office of such Lender from time to time under this Agreement.

Borrower and each Lender’s share thereof and (iv) any cancellation or retirement of Loans contemplated by Section 13.6(i). (f) The entries made in the Register and accounts and subaccounts maintained pursuant to paragraphs (d) and (e) of this Section 2.5 shall, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations of the Borrower therein recorded and, in the case of the Register, shall be conclusive absent manifest error; provided, however, that the failure of any Lender or the Administrative Agent to maintain such account, such Register or such subaccount, as applicable, or any error therein, shall not in any manner affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay (with applicable interest) the Loans made to the Borrower in accordance with the terms of this Agreement; provided, further, that in the event of any inconsistency between the accounts maintained by the Administrative Agent pursuant to paragraph (e) of this Section 2.5 and any Lender’s records, the accounts of the Administrative Agent shall govern.

Any such automatic continuation shall be effective as of the last day of the Interest Period then in effect with respect to the applicable Fixed Rate Loans. If the Borrower requests a conversion to, or continuation of, Fixed Rate Loans in any such Notice of Conversion or Continuation, but fails to specify an Interest Period, it will be deemed to have specified an Interest Period of one (1) month’s duration.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained above: (a) the initial Interest Period for any Borrowing of Eurocurrency Loans or Term SOFR Loans shall commence on the date of such Borrowing (including the date of any conversion from a Borrowing of ABR Loans) and each Interest Period occurring thereafter in respect of such Borrowing shall commence on the day on which the next preceding Interest Period expires; (b) if any Interest Period would end on a day other than a Business Day, such Interest Period shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day unless such next succeeding Business Day would fall in the next calendar month, in which case such Interest Period shall end on the next preceding Business Day; (c) if any Interest Period relating to a Borrowing of Eurocurrency Loans or Term SOFR Loans begins on the last Business Day of a calendar month or begins on a day for which there is no numerically corresponding day in the calendar month at the end of such Interest Period, such Interest Period shall end on the last Business Day of the calendar month at the end of such Interest Period; (d) in the case of Eurocurrency Loans and Term SOFR Loans, interest shall accrue from and including the first day of an Interest Period to but excluding the last day of such Interest Period; and (e) the Borrower shall not be entitled to elect any Interest Period in respect of any Eurocurrency Loan or Term SOFR Loan if such Interest Period would extend beyond the applicable Maturity Date of such Loan. -112- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
2.10 Increased Costs, Illegality, Etc. (a) In the event that (x) in the case of clause (i) below, the Administrative Agent or (y) in the case of clauses (ii) through (iv) below, any Lender, shall have reasonably determined (which determination shall, absent clearly demonstrable error, be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto): (i) on any date for determining the Eurocurrency Rate for any Interest Period that (x) deposits in the principal amounts of the Loans comprising any Borrowing of Fixed Loans are not generally available in the relevant market or (y) by reason of any changes arising on or after the Closing Date affecting the London interbank eurocurrency market, the market for loans based on “CDOR”, “TIBOR” or “BBSY” rate or the market for any similar rate for any other Alternative Currency, adequate and fair means do not exist for ascertaining the applicable interest rate on the basis provided for in the definition of the Eurocurrency Rate; or (ii) that, due to a Change in Law, which shall (A) impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, any Lender (except any reserve requirement taken into account in determining the Statutory Reserves); (B) subject any Lender to any Tax (other than (1) Taxes indemnifiable under Section 5.4 or (2) Excluded Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credits, commitments or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto; or (C) impose on any Lender, the London interbank eurocurrency market, the market for loans based on “CDOR”, “TIBOR” or “BBSY” rate or the market for any similar rate for any other Alternative Currency any other condition, cost or expense affecting this Agreement or Eurocurrency Loans made by such Lender (other than Taxes), which results in the cost to such Lender of making, converting into, continuing or maintaining Eurocurrency Loans or participating in Letters of Credit (in each case hereunder) increasing by an amount which such Lender reasonably deems material or the amounts received or receivable by such Lender hereunder with respect to the foregoing shall be reduced; (iii) at any time after the Closing Date, that the making or continuance of any Eurocurrency Loan has become unlawful by compliance by such Lender in good faith with any Applicable Law (or would conflict with any such Applicable Law not having the force of law even though the failure to comply therewith would not be unlawful), or has become impracticable as a result of a contingency occurring after the Closing Date that materially and adversely affects the London interbank eurocurrency market, the market for loans based on “CDOR”, “TIBOR” or “BBSY” rate or the market for any similar rate for any other Alternative Currency; or (iv) at any time that the respective Alternative Currency (other than Dollars, Euros, Pounds Sterling or Canadian Dollars) is not available in sufficient amounts to fund any Borrowing of such Alternative Currency Loans requested pursuant to Section 2.1; then, and in any such event, such Lender (or the Administrative Agent, in the case of clause (i) above) shall within a reasonable time thereafter give written notice to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent of such determination (which notice the Administrative Agent shall promptly transmit to each of the other Lenders). Thereafter (w) in the case of clause (i) or (iv) above, in the event any Eurocurrency Loans are so affected, the applicable Eurocurrency Loans shall no longer be available until such time as the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice by the Administrative Agent no longer exist (which notice the Administrative Agent agrees to give at such time when such circumstances no longer exist), and (A) any Notice of Borrowing or Notice of Conversion or Continuation given by the Borrower with respect to the Eurocurrency Loans that have not yet been Incurred shall be deemed rescinded by the Borrower, (B) in the case of any affected Eurocurrency Borrowing in Dollars, such Borrowing shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing at the end of the applicable Interest Period and (C) in the case of any affected Eurocurrency Borrowing in an Alternative Currency, at the Borrower’s election, such Borrowing shall either (1) be converted into ABR Borrowing denominated in Dollars in the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of such outstanding Eurocurrency Loan at the end of the applicable Interest Period or (2) be prepaid at the end of the applicable Interest Period in full; provided that if no election is made by the Borrower by the earlier of (x) the date that is three Business Days after receipt by the Borrower of such notice -113- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
and (y) the last day of the current Interest Period for the applicable Eurocurrency Loan, the Borrower shall be deemed to have elected clause (1) above, (x) in the case of clause (ii) above, the Borrower shall pay to such Lender, promptly (but no later than ten Business Days) after receipt of written demand therefor such additional amounts (in the form of an increased rate of, or a different method of calculating, interest or otherwise as such Lender in its reasonable discretion shall determine) as shall be required to compensate such Lender for such increased costs or reductions in amounts receivable hereunder (it being agreed that a written notice as to the additional amounts owed to such Lender, showing in reasonable detail the basis for the calculation thereof, submitted to the Borrower by such Lender shall, absent clearly demonstrable error, be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto), and (y) in the case of clause (iii) above, the Borrower shall take one of the actions specified in Section 2.10(b) as promptly as possible and, in any event, within the time period required by Applicable Law. (b) At any time that any Eurocurrency Loan is affected by the circumstances described in Section 2.10(a)(ii) or (a)(iii), the Borrower may (and in the case of a Eurocurrency Loan affected pursuant to Section 2.10(a)(iii) shall) either (x) if the affected Eurocurrency Loan is then being made pursuant to a Borrowing, cancel said Borrowing by giving the Administrative Agent written notice thereof on the same date that the Borrower was notified by a Lender pursuant to Section 2.10(a)(ii) or (a)(iii) or (y) if the affected Eurocurrency Loan is then outstanding, upon at least three Business Days’ notice to the Administrative Agent, require the affected Lender to convert each such Eurocurrency Loan into an ABR Loan, if applicable; provided that (A) if the circumstances described in Section 2.10(a)(iii) apply to any Alternative Currency Loan, the Borrower may, in lieu of taking the actions described above, maintain such Alternative Currency Loan outstanding, in which case the applicable Eurocurrency shall be determined on the basis provided in the definition of the relevant Eurocurrency Rate, unless the maintenance of such Alternative Currency Loan outstanding on such basis would not stop the conditions described in Section 2.10(a)(iii) from existing (in which case the actions described above, without giving effect to the proviso, shall be required to be taken) and (B) if more than one Lender is affected at any time, then all affected Lenders must be treated in the same manner pursuant to this Section 2.10(b). (c) If, any Change in Law regarding capital adequacy or liquidity requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or Letter of Credit Issuer’s or their respective parent’s capital or assets as a consequence of such Lender’s or Letter of Credit Issuer’s commitments or obligations hereunder to a level below that which such Lender or Letter of Credit Issuer or their respective parent could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s or Letter of Credit Issuer’s or their respective parent’s policies with respect to capital adequacy or liquidity), then from time to time, promptly (but no later than ten Business Days) after written demand by such Lender or Letter of Credit Issuer (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), the Borrower shall pay to such Lender or Letter of Credit Issuer such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or Letter of Credit Issuer or their respective parent for such reduction, it being understood and agreed, however, that a Lender or Letter of Credit Issuer shall not be entitled to such compensation as a result of such Lender’s or Letter of Credit Issuer’s compliance with, or pursuant to any request or directive to comply with, any such Applicable Law as in effect on the Closing Date except as a result of a Change in Law. Each Lender or Letter of Credit Issuer, upon determining in good faith that any additional amounts will be payable pursuant to this Section 2.10(c), will give prompt written notice thereof to the Borrower (on its own behalf) which notice shall set forth in reasonable detail the basis of the calculation of such additional amounts, although the failure to give any such notice shall not, subject to Section 2.13, release or diminish any of the Borrower’s obligations to pay additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.10(c) upon receipt of such notice. (d) Benchmark Replacement Settings. (I) other than with respect to the 2022 Incremental Term Loan Facility: (i) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or in any other Credit Document, but subject to the rights of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower to determine that a Benchmark Replacement Date has occurred and implement a Benchmark Replacement Rate pursuant to clause (vi) of this Section 2.10(d) below, upon the occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event or an Early Opt-in Election, as applicable, the Administrative Agent and the Borrower may establish an alternate benchmark floating rate of interest to the Eurocurrency Rate (or similar interbank offered rate) that is a Benchmark Replacement Rate, and may enter into an amendment to this Agreement (the “Benchmark Replacement Amendment”) to reflect such Benchmark -114- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
Replacement Rate and such other related changes to this Agreement with respect thereto as may be applicable in their discretion, including provisions for the Administrative Agent and the Borrower to allow for the adoption of any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes; provided, further, that any Benchmark Replacement Rate implemented pursuant to this Section 2.10(d) shall only be implemented to the extent that the Administrative Agent reasonably determines, in consultation with the Borrower, that it is administratively feasible for the Administrative Agent to administer. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, unless such Benchmark Replacement Rate is determined in accordance with clause (c) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement Rate” (in which case the effectiveness of such Benchmark Replacement Amendment will be determined in accordance with clause (d)(ii) below), the Benchmark Replacement Amendment (i) shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement and (ii) may designate the timing of effectiveness of the Benchmark Replacement Rate (including pursuant to the occurrence of identified conditions), but in any event to occur no earlier than the applicable Benchmark Transition Start Date. (ii) If a Benchmark Replacement Rate is determined in accordance with clause (c) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement Rate”, then the Administrative Agent and the Borrower may establish such alternate benchmark floating term rate of interest to the Eurocurrency Rate (the “Alternative Benchmark Rate”), which may include a Benchmark Replacement Adjustment, and enter into a Benchmark Replacement Amendment to reflect such alternate rate of interest, which amendment shall become effective five Business Days after the date that the proposed Benchmark Replacement Amendment is provided to the Lenders, unless prior to the end of such five Business Day period the Administrative Agent receives a written notice from the Required Lenders stating that such Required Lenders object to such Benchmark Replacement Amendment, in which event, such Benchmark Replacement Amendment shall not become effective; provided that any Alternative Benchmark Rate implemented pursuant to this paragraph shall only be implemented to the extent that the Administrative Agent reasonably decides, in consultation with the Borrower, that it is administratively feasible for the Administrative Agent to administer. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Benchmark Replacement Amendment may designate the timing of effectiveness of the Benchmark Replacement Rate (including pursuant to the occurrence of identified conditions, but in any event to occur no earlier than the applicable Benchmark Transition Start Date). For the avoidance of doubt, if any such alternate rate of interest determined pursuant to this paragraph would be less than the Floor, such rate shall be deemed to be the Floor for purposes of this Agreement. (iii) Following the effectiveness of the Benchmark Replacement Amendment, if any Benchmark Transition Event occurs with respect to the Benchmark Replacement Rate or the Alternative Benchmark Rate identified in such Benchmark Replacement Amendment (including, for the avoidance of doubt, any change in or alternative to the Benchmark Replacement Adjustment or any change in or alternative to a compounded or term methodology for calculating such benchmark), then the Administrative Agent and the Borrower may enter into an additional Benchmark Replacement Amendment to reflect another Benchmark Replacement Rate without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement or to reflect an Alternative Benchmark Rate, which amendment, (A) in the case of a proposed replacement Benchmark Replacement Rate that is determined under clause (a) or (b) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement Rate”, (x) shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement and (y) may designate the timing of effectiveness of the Benchmark Replacement Rate (including pursuant to the occurrence of identified conditions, but in any event to occur no earlier than the applicable Benchmark Transition Start Date), and (B) in the case of any other proposed Benchmark Replacement Rate (including any additional Alternative Benchmark Rate), shall become effective five Business Days after the date that the proposed Benchmark Replacement Amendment is provided to the Lenders, unless prior to the end of such five Business Day period the Administrative Agent receives a written notice from the Required Lenders stating that such Required Lenders object to such Benchmark Replacement Amendment; provided that, with respect to any such additional Benchmark Replacement Amendment to reflect another Benchmark Replacement Rate, Required Lenders shall (A) not be entitled to object to any such Benchmark Replacement Rate based on SOFR contained in such additional Benchmark Replacement Amendment and (B) only be entitled to object to the Benchmark Replacement Adjustments with respect thereto. (iv) The Administrative Agent and/or the Borrower will promptly notify the Administrative Agent, the Borrower and the Lenders, as applicable, of (i) any occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event or an Early Opt-in Election, as applicable, and its related Benchmark Replacement Date and Benchmark Transition Start Date, (ii) the implementation of any Benchmark Replacement Rate or Alternative Benchmark Rate and (iii) the effectiveness of -115- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes. Any determination, decision or election that may be made pursuant to this Section 2.10(d), including any determination with respect to a tenor, rate or adjustment or of the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event, circumstance or date and any decision to take or refrain from taking any action or any selection, will be conclusive and binding absent manifest error and may be made only in accordance with this Section 2.10(d). (v) To the extent administratively and operationally feasible, the Administrative Agent shall use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that any Benchmark Replacement Rate and any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes shall meet the standards set forth in Proposed Section 1.1001-6 of the United States Treasury Regulations (or any successor or final version of such regulation) so as not to be treated as a “modification” (and therefore an exchange) of this Agreement or any Loans hereunder for purposes of Section 1.1001-3 of the United States Treasury Regulations, it being understood that for these purposes, the substantially equivalent fair market value requirement of Proposed Treasury Regulations Section 1.1001-6(b)(2) shall be deemed satisfied, and it being further understood that the Administrative Agent shall not be required to take any action under this provision that would cause it any commercially unreasonable burden as determined in good faith by the Administrative Agent. (vi) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or in any other Credit Document, but subject to the rights of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower to effect a Benchmark Replacement Amendment pursuant to clause (i) of this Section 2.10(d) above, in their sole discretions to the extent the following conditions of this clause (vi) are not satisfied, if (A) a Benchmark Transition Event or, as the case may be, an Early Opt-in Election and the Benchmark Replacement Date with respect thereto has already occurred prior to the Reference Time for any setting of the then-current Benchmark and as a result the then-current Benchmark is being determined in accordance with clauses (2) or (3) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement Rate” and (B) the Administrative Agent and the Borrower subsequently determine that (i) Term SOFR and a Benchmark Replacement Adjustment with respect thereto is or has becomes available and the Benchmark Replacement Date with respect thereto has occurred, (ii) there is currently a market for syndicated credit facilities utilizing Term SOFR as a Benchmark and for determining the Benchmark Replacement Adjustment with respect thereto, (iii) Term SOFR is being recommended as the Benchmark for syndicated credit facilities by the Relevant Governmental Body and (iv) in any event, Term SOFR, the Benchmark Replacement Adjustment with respect thereto and the application thereof is administratively feasible for the Administrative Agent (as determined by the Administrative Agent in consultation with the Borrower), then, at the joint election of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, clause (1) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement Rate” will, without requiring any amendment to, or requiring any further action by or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Credit Document, replace such then-current Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any other Credit Document in respect of such Benchmark setting and subsequent Benchmark settings on and from the beginning of the next Interest Period or, as the case may be, Available Tenor so long as the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower and the Lenders prior to the commencement of such next Interest Period or, as the case may be, Available Tenor. (vii) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or in any other Credit Document, the Administrative Agent does not warrant nor accept any responsibility nor shall the Administrative Agent have any liability with respect to (A) any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes, (B) any alternative benchmark implemented pursuant to this Section 2.10(d), (C) any Benchmark Replacement Amendment, (D) the administration, submission or any matter relating to the rates in the definition of Benchmark or with respect to any rate that is an alternative, comparable or successor rate thereto or (E) the effect of any of the foregoing. (viii) During the continuance of a Benchmark Unavailability Period, if no Benchmark Replacement Rate has been implemented, the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrower and the Lenders thereof, and thereafter the Borrower may revoke any request for a borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Eurocurrency Loans to be made, converted or continued that would bear interest by reference to the Eurocurrency Rate until the Borrower’s receipt of notice from the Administrative Agent that a Benchmark Replacement Rate has been implemented, and, failing that, (A) in the case of any affected Eurocurrency Borrowing in Dollars, such Borrowing shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing at the end of the applicable Interest Period and (B) in the case of any affected Eurocurrency Borrowing in an Alternative Currency, at the Borrower’s election, such Borrowing shall either (1) be converted into ABR Borrowing denominated in Dollars in the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of such outstanding Eurocurrency Loan at the end of the applicable Interest Period or (2) be prepaid at the end of the -116- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
applicable Interest Period in full; provided that if no election is made by the Borrower by the earlier of (x) the date that is three Business Days after receipt by the Borrower of such notice and (y) the last day of the current Interest Period for the applicable Eurocurrency Loan, the Borrower shall be deemed to have elected clause (1) above. During the period referenced in the foregoing sentence, the component of ABR based upon the Eurocurrency Rate will not be used in any determination of ABR. (II) Solely with respect to the 2022 Incremental Term Loan Facility, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or in any other Credit Document: (i) If the Administrative Agent (in consultation with the Borrower), determines (which determination shall be conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto) that: (A) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Interest Period on the basis provided for in the definition of Term SOFR, including, without limitation, because the Term SOFR Reference Rate is not available or published on a current basis and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary; (B) CME or any successor administrator of the Term SOFR Reference Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent or such administrator with respect to its publication of Term SOFR, in each case acting in such capacity, has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which all Available Tenors of Term SOFR or the Term SOFR Reference Rate shall or will no longer be made available, or permitted to be used for determining the interest rate of U.S. dollar denominated syndicated loans, or shall or will otherwise cease, provided that, at the time of such statement, there is no successor administrator that is satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, that will continue to provide such interest periods of Term SOFR after such specific date (the latest date on which all Available Tenors of Term SOFR or the Term SOFR Reference Rate are no longer available permanently or indefinitely, the “Scheduled Unavailability Date”); or (C) the Administrative Agent (in consultation with the Borrower) determines that Term SOFR is no longer the then-prevailing market convention for determining a rate of interest for U.S. dollar-denominated credit facilities similar to the 2022 Incremental Term Loan Facility and there is currently a market for U.S. dollar-denominated syndicated credit facilities using an alternative benchmark rate; then, on a date and time determined by the Administrative Agent (in consultation with the Borrower) (any such date, the “Term SOFR Replacement Date”), which date shall be at the end of an Interest Period or on the relevant interest payment date, as applicable, for interest calculated and, solely with respect to clause (B) above, no later than the Scheduled Unavailability Date, Term SOFR will be replaced hereunder and under any Credit Document with Daily Simple SOFR for any payment period for interest calculated that can be determined by the Administrative Agent, in each case, without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Credit Document (the “Term SOFR Successor Rate”). If the Term SOFR Successor Rate is Daily Simple SOFR, all interest payments will be payable on a monthly basis. (ii) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, (i) if the Administrative Agent (in consultation with the Borrower) determines that Daily Simple SOFR is not available on or prior to the Term SOFR Replacement Date, or (ii) if the events or circumstances of the type described in Section 2.10(d)(II)(i)(A), (B) or (C) have occurred with respect to the Term SOFR Successor Rate then in effect, then in each case, the Administrative Agent and the Borrower may amend this Agreement solely for the purpose of replacing Term SOFR or any then current Term SOFR Successor Rate in accordance with this Section 2.10(d)(II) at the end of any Interest Period, -117- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
relevant interest payment date or payment period for interest calculated, as applicable, with an alternative benchmark rate giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar U.S. dollar denominated credit facilities syndicated and agented in the United States for such alternative benchmark, and, in each case, including any mathematical or other adjustments to such benchmark giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar U.S. dollar denominated credit facilities syndicated and agented in the United States for such benchmark, which adjustment or method for calculating such adjustment shall be published on an information service as selected by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, from time to time and may be periodically updated; provided that any Term SOFR Successor Rate implemented pursuant to this Section 2.10(d)(II) shall only be implemented to the extent that the Administrative Agent reasonably determines, in consultation with the Borrower, that it is administratively feasible for the Administrative Agent to administer. For the avoidance of doubt, any such proposed rate and adjustments, shall constitute a “Term SOFR Successor Rate”; provided that (i) such replacement amendment has been posted to all Lenders five Business Days prior to the Term SOFR Replacement Date and (ii) the Administrative Agent has not received written objection to such amendment from 2022 Incremental Term Lenders holding greater than 50.0% of the sum of the outstanding aggregate principal amount of the 2022 Incremental Term Loans prior to the Term SOFR Replacement Date. (iii) The Administrative Agent will promptly (in one or more notices) notify the Borrower and each 2022 Incremental Term Lender of the implementation of any Term SOFR Successor Rate. (iv) Notwithstanding anything else herein, if at any time any Term SOFR Successor Rate as so determined would otherwise be less than 0.50%, the Term SOFR Successor Rate will be deemed to be 0.50% for the purposes of this Agreement and the other Credit Documents. (vi) In connection with the implementation of a Term SOFR Successor Rate, the Administrative Agent and the Borrower will have the right to make Term SOFR Successor Rate Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Credit Document, any amendments implementing such Term SOFR Successor Rate Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement; provided that, with respect to any such amendment effected, the Administrative Agent shall post each such amendment implementing such Term SOFR Successor Rate Conforming Changes to the 2022 Incremental Term Lenders reasonably promptly after such amendment becomes effective. (vii) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or in any other Credit Document, the Administrative Agent does not warrant nor accept any responsibility nor shall the Administrative Agent have any liability with respect to (A) any Term SOFR Successor Rate Conforming Changes, (B) any alternative benchmark implemented pursuant to this Section 2.10(d)(II), (C) any amendment implementing Term SOFR Successor Rate Conforming Changes, (D) the administration, submission or any matter relating to the rates in the definition of Term SOFR or with respect to any rate that is an alternative, comparable or successor rate thereto or (E) the effect of any of the foregoing. (e) The agreements in this Section 2.10 shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder. (f) Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Lender or Letter of Credit Issuer shall be entitled to seek compensation under this Section 2.10 based on the occurrence of a Change in Law arising solely from (x) the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act or any requests, rules, guidelines or directives thereunder or issued in connection therewith or (y) Basel III or any requests, rules, guidelines or directives thereunder or issued in connection therewith, unless such Lender or Letter of Credit Issuer is generally seeking compensation from other borrowers in the U.S. leveraged loan market with respect to its similarly affected -118- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
commitments, loans and/or participations under agreements with such borrowers having provisions similar to this Section 2.10. (g) This Section 2.10 shall not operate to provide payments that are duplicative of those required under Section 5.4. 2.11 Compensation. If (a) any payment of principal of a Fixed Rate Loan is made by the Borrower to or for the account of a Lender other than on the last day of the Interest Period for such Fixed Rate Loan as a result of a payment or conversion pursuant to Section 2.5, 2.6, 2.10, 5.1, 5.2 or 13.7, as a result of acceleration of the maturity of the Loans pursuant to Section 11 or for any other reason, (b) any Borrowing of Fixed Rate Loans is not made as a result of a withdrawn Notice of Borrowing or failure to satisfy the conditions of Section 6 and Section 7, (c) any ABR Loan is not converted into a Fixed Rate Loan as a result of a withdrawn Notice of Conversion or Continuation, (d) any Fixed Rate Loan is not continued as a Fixed Rate Loan as a result of a withdrawn Notice of Conversion or Continuation or (e) any prepayment of principal of a Fixed Rate Loan is not made as a result of a withdrawn notice of prepayment pursuant to Section 5.1 or 5.2, the Borrower shall, after receipt by the Borrower of a written request by such Lender (which request shall set forth in reasonable detail the basis for requesting such amount and, absent clearly demonstrable error, the amount requested shall be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto), pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender within ten Business Days of such request any amounts required to compensate such Lender for any additional losses, costs or expenses that such Lender may reasonably incur as a result of such payment, failure to borrow, failure to convert, failure to continue, failure to prepay, reduction or failure to reduce, including any loss, cost or expense (excluding loss of anticipated profits) actually incurred by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds acquired by such Lender to fund or maintain such Fixed Rate Loan. The agreements in this Section 2.11 shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder. 2.12 Change of Lending Office. Each Lender agrees that, upon the occurrence of any event giving rise to the operation of Section 2.10(a)(ii), 2.10(a)(iii), 2.10(c), 3.5 or 5.4 with respect to such Lender, it will, if requested by the Borrower, use reasonable efforts (subject to overall policy considerations of such Lender) to designate another lending office for any Loans affected by such event; provided that such designation is made on such terms that such Lender and its lending office suffer no economic, legal or regulatory disadvantage, with the object of avoiding the consequence of the event giving rise to the operation of any such Section. Nothing in this Section 2.12 shall affect or postpone any of the obligations of the Borrower or the right of any Lender provided in Section 2.10, 3.5 or 5.4. 2.13 Notice of Certain Costs. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, to the extent any notice required by Section 2.10, 2.11, 3.5 or 5.4 is given by any Lender more than 180 days after such Lender has knowledge (or should have had knowledge) of the occurrence of the event giving rise to the additional cost, reduction in amounts, loss, tax or other additional amounts described in such Sections, such Lender shall not be entitled to compensation under Section 2.10, 2.11, 3.5 or 5.4, as the case may be, for any such amounts incurred or accruing prior to the giving of such notice to the Borrower; provided that, if the circumstance giving rise to such claim is retroactive, then such 180 day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof. 2.14 Incremental Facilities.

(d) Each notice from the Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.14 shall be given in writing and shall set forth the requested amount, currency types and denominations and proposed terms of the relevant Incremental Term Loans, Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increases or Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments. Incremental Term Loans may be made, and Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increases and Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments may be provided, subject to the prior written consent of the Borrower (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), by any existing Lender (it being understood that no existing Lender with an Initial Term Loan Commitment or 2022 Incremental Term Loan Commitment will have an obligation to make a portion of any Incremental Term Loan, no existing Lender with a Revolving Credit Commitment will have any obligation to provide a portion of any Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increase and no existing Lender with a Revolving Credit Commitment will have an obligation to provide a portion of any Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitment) or by any other bank, financial institution, other institutional lender or other investor (any such other bank, financial institution or other investor being called an “Additional Lender”); provided that the Administrative Agent shall have consented (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) to such Lender’s or Additional Lender’s making such Incremental Term Loans or providing such Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increases or such Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments if such consent would be required under Section 13.6(b) for an assignment of Loans or Commitments, -122- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
as applicable, to such Lender or Additional Lender; provided, further, that, solely with respect to any Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increases, the Swingline Lender and the Letter of Credit Issuer shall have consented (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) to any Additional Lender’s providing such Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increases if such consent would be required under Section 13.6(b) for an assignment of Loans or Commitments, as applicable, to such Additional Lender. (e) Commitments in respect of Incremental Term Loans, Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increases and Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments shall become Commitments (or in the case of an Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increase to be provided by an existing Lender with a Revolving Credit Commitment, an increase in such Lender’s applicable Revolving Credit Commitment) under this Agreement pursuant to an amendment (an “Incremental Agreement”) to this Agreement and, as appropriate, the other Credit Documents, executed by the Borrower, each Lender agreeing to provide such Commitment, if any, and each Additional Lender, if any, so long as any Additional Lender shall have complied with the provisions of Section 13.6(b)(ii)(C) and delivered such forms to the Administrative Agent and the Administrative Agent shall have received prior notice of the proposed execution of such Incremental Agreement; provided that, except as specifically set forth in Section 2.14(d), the Administrative Agent shall not otherwise be required to execute any Incremental Agreement unless such Incremental Agreement would affect the Credit Documents in a manner that would require the consent of the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 13.1(iv) or pursuant to clause (x)(1) of the proviso to Section 2.14(c)(i) or clause (x)(1) of the proviso to Section 2.14(c)(iii). The Incremental Agreement may, subject to Section 2.14(c), without the consent of any other Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Credit Documents as may be necessary, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to effect the provisions of this Section (including (i) in connection with an Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increase, to reallocate Revolving Credit Exposure on a pro rata basis among the relevant Revolving Credit Lenders, (ii) in connection with Classes of Incremental Term Loans, to extend the Prepayment Premium Period for the benefit of any existing Class of Term Loans to the extent that such Class of Incremental Term Loans shall have the benefit of such longer Prepayment Premium Period, (iii) to increase the Effective Yield of the applicable Class of Term Loans, or make other changes to any applicable Class of Term Loans that are favorable to the Lenders thereof, in any such case to the extent necessary in order to ensure that any applicable Class of Incremental Term Loans are “fungible” with any applicable existing Class of Term Loans, (iv) to add mechanics to allow for the accrual and payment of payment in kind interest in respect of any such additional Class of Incremental Term Loans and to add any “AHYDO” payment provisions related thereto, (v) to add or extend, in either case, any other “call protection” for the benefit of any applicable existing Class of Term Loans and/or (vi) in connection with any Incurrence of any Incremental Facility denominated in a currency other than Dollars, to add interest rate definitions and other currency provisions that are customarily included in agreements contemplating Borrowings or the execution of credit documents in any such currency. The effectiveness of any Incremental Agreement (an “Incremental Facility Closing Date”) and the occurrence of any Credit Event pursuant to such Incremental Agreement shall be subject to the satisfaction of such conditions as the parties thereto shall agree. The Borrower will use the proceeds of the Incremental Term Loans, Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increases and Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments for any purpose not prohibited by this Agreement; provided, however, that the proceeds of any Incremental Term Loans Incurred, and any Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments provided, in either case as described in the proviso to Section 2.14(b), shall be used in accordance with the terms thereof. (f) (i) No Lender shall be obligated to provide any Incremental Term Loans, Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increases or Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments unless it so agrees and the Borrower shall not be obligated to offer any existing Lender the opportunity to provide any Incremental Term Loans, Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increases or Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments. (ii) Upon each increase in the Revolving Credit Commitments of any Class pursuant to this Section, each Lender with a Revolving Credit Commitment of such Class immediately prior to such increase will automatically and without further act be deemed to have assigned to each Lender providing a portion of the Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increase (each, an “Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increase Lender”) in respect of such increase, and each such Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increase 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 and Swingline Loans such that, after giving pro forma -123- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
effect to each such deemed assignment and assumption of participations, the percentage of the aggregate outstanding (A) participations hereunder in Letters of Credit and (B) participations hereunder in Swingline Loans held by each Lender with a Revolving Credit Commitment of such Class (including each such Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increase Lender) will equal the percentage of the aggregate Revolving Credit Commitments of such Class of all Lenders represented by such Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment of such Class. If, on the date of such increase, there are any Revolving Credit Loans of such Class outstanding, such Revolving Credit Loans shall on or prior to the effectiveness of such Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increase be prepaid from the proceeds of additional Revolving Credit Loans made hereunder (reflecting such increase in Revolving Credit Commitments of such Class), which prepayment shall be accompanied by accrued interest on the Revolving Credit Loans of such Class being prepaid and any costs incurred by any Lender in accordance with Section 2.11. The Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereby agree that the minimum borrowing, pro rata borrowing and pro rata payment requirements contained elsewhere in this Agreement shall not apply to the transactions effected pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence. (g) This Section 2.14 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.7 or 13.1 to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, any provisions of this Section 2.14 may be amended with the consent of the Required Lenders; provided no such amendment shall require any Lender to provide any Incremental Commitment without such Lender’s consent 2.15 Extensions of Term Loans, Revolving Credit Loans and Revolving Credit Commitments and Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Loans and Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments. (a) The Borrower may at any time and from time to time request that all or a portion of each Term Loan of any Class (an “Existing Term Loan Class”) be converted or exchanged to extend the scheduled final maturity date(s) of any payment of principal with respect to all or a portion of any principal amount of such Term Loans or to make any other changes to the terms of such Term Loans (excluding any changes to the guarantees, Collateral or payment or lien priority (unless such change is to make such payment or lien priority junior to the Existing Term Loan Class and in such case a Customary Intercreditor Agreement or subordination agreement shall be entered into)(any such Term Loans which have been so extended or changed, “Extended Term Loans”) and to provide for other terms consistent with this Section 2.15. Prior to entering into any Extension Agreement with respect to any Extended Term Loans, the Borrower shall provide written notice to the Administrative Agent (who shall provide a copy of such notice to each of the Lenders of the applicable Existing Term Loan Class, with such request offered equally and on the same terms and conditions to all such Lenders of such Existing Term Loan Class) (a “Term Loan Extension Request”) setting forth the proposed terms of the Extended Term Loans to be established, which terms shall be similar to the Term Loans of the Existing Term Loan Class from which they are to be extended or changed except that (w) the scheduled final maturity date may be extended or changed and all or any of the scheduled amortization payments of all or a portion of any principal amount of such Extended Term Loans may be delayed to later dates than the scheduled amortization of principal of the Term Loans of such Existing Term Loan Class (with any such delay resulting in a corresponding adjustment to the scheduled amortization payments reflected in Section 2.5 or in the Extension Agreement or the Incremental Agreement, as the case may be, with respect to the Existing Term Loan Class of Term Loans from which such Extended Term Loans were extended or changed, in each case as more particularly set forth in Section 2.15(d) below), (x)(A) the interest rates (including through fixed interest rates), interest margins, rate floors, upfront fees, funding discounts, original issue discounts and prepayment terms and premiums with respect to the Extended Term Loans may be different than those for the Term Loans of such Existing Term Loan Class and/or (B) additional fees and/or premiums may be payable to the Lenders providing such Extended Term Loans in addition to any of the items contemplated by the preceding clause (A), in each case, to the extent provided in the applicable Extension Agreement, (y) subject to the provisions set forth in Sections 5.1 and 5.2, the Extended Term Loans may have optional prepayment terms (including call protection and prepayment terms and premiums) and mandatory prepayment terms as may be agreed between the Borrower and the Lenders thereof and (z) the Extension Agreement may provide for other covenants and terms. No Lender shall have any obligation to agree to have any of its Term Loans of any Existing Term Loan Class converted into Extended Term Loans pursuant to any Term Loan Extension Request. Any Extended Term Loans of any Extension Series shall constitute a separate Class of Term Loans from the Existing Term Loan Class of Term Loans from which they were extended or changed. -124- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
(b) The Borrower may at any time and from time to time request that all or a portion of the Revolving Credit Commitments of any Class, the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments of any Class and/or any Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments (and, in each case, including any previously extended Revolving Credit Commitments and/or Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments), existing at the time of such request or to make any other changes to the terms of such Existing Revolving Credit Commitments and related Loans (each, an “Existing Revolving Credit Commitment” and any related revolving credit loans under any such facility, “Existing Revolving Credit Loans”; each Existing Revolving Credit Commitment and related Existing Revolving Credit Loans together being referred to as an “Existing Revolving Credit Class”) be converted or exchanged to extend the termination date thereof and the scheduled maturity date(s) of any payment of principal with respect to all or a portion of any principal amount of Existing Revolving Credit Loans related to such Existing Revolving Credit Commitments or to make any other changes to the terms of such Existing Revolving Credit Commitment and related Loans (any such Existing Revolving Credit Commitments which have been so extended, “Extended Revolving Credit Commitments” and any related revolving credit loans, “Extended Revolving Credit Loans”) and to provide for other terms consistent with this Section 2.15. Prior to entering into any Extension Agreement with respect to any Extended Revolving Credit Commitments, the Borrower shall provide a notice to the Administrative Agent (who shall provide a copy of such notice to each of the Lenders of the applicable Class of Existing Revolving Credit Commitments, with such request offered equally to all Lenders of such Class) (a “Revolving Credit Extension Request”) setting forth the proposed terms of the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments to be established thereunder, which terms shall be similar to those applicable to the Existing Revolving Credit Commitments from which they are to be extended or changed (the “Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class”) except that (w) all or any of the final maturity dates of such Extended Revolving Credit Commitments may be extended or changed to later dates than the final maturity dates of the Existing Revolving Credit Commitments of the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class, (x)(A) the interest rates, interest margins, rate floors, upfront fees, funding discounts, original issue discounts and prepayment terms and premiums with respect to the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments may be different than those for the Existing Revolving Credit Commitments of the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class and/or (B) additional fees and/or premiums may be payable to the Lenders providing such Extended Revolving Credit Commitments in addition to or in lieu of any of the items contemplated by the preceding clause (A) and (y)(1) the undrawn revolving credit commitment fee rate with respect to the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments may be different than those for the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class and (2) the Extension Agreement may provide for other covenants and terms; provided that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.15, Section 5.2(e) or otherwise, (I) the borrowing and repayment (other than in connection with a permanent repayment and termination of commitments) of the Extended Revolving Credit Loans under any Extended Revolving Credit Commitments shall be made on a pro rata basis with any borrowings and repayments of the Existing Revolving Credit Loans of the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class (the mechanics for which may be implemented through the applicable Extension Agreement and may include technical changes related to the borrowing and repayment procedures of the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class), (II) assignments and participations of Extended Revolving Credit Commitments and Extended Revolving Credit Loans shall be governed by the assignment and participation provisions set forth in Section 13.6 and (III) subject to the applicable limitations set forth in Section 4.2 and Section 5.2(e)(ii), permanent repayments of Extended Revolving Credit Loans (and corresponding permanent reductions in the related Extended Revolving Credit Commitments) shall be permitted as may be agreed between the Borrower and the Lenders thereof. No Lender shall have any obligation to agree to have any of its Revolving Credit Loans or Revolving Credit Commitments of any Existing Revolving Credit Class converted or exchanged into Extended Revolving Credit Loans or Extended Revolving Credit Commitments pursuant to any Extension Request. Any Extended Revolving Credit Commitments of any Extension Series shall constitute a separate Class of revolving credit commitments from Existing Revolving Credit Commitments of the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class and from any other Existing Revolving Credit Commitments (together with any other Extended Revolving Credit Commitments so established on such date). (c) The Borrower shall provide the applicable Extension Request to the Administrative Agent at least five (5) Business Days (or such shorter period as the Administrative Agent may determine in its reasonable discretion) prior to the date on which Lenders under the Existing Class are requested to respond, and shall agree to such procedures, if any, as may be established by, or acceptable to, the Administrative Agent, in each case acting reasonably, to accomplish the purpose of this Section 2.15. The Borrower may, at its election, specify as a condition -125- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
to consummating any Extension Agreement that a minimum amount (to be determined and specified in the relevant Extension Request in the Borrower’s sole discretion and as may be waived by the Borrower) of Term Loans and/or Revolving Credit Commitments (as applicable) of any or all applicable Classes be tendered. Any Lender (an “Extending Lender”) wishing to have all or a portion of its Term Loans, Revolving Credit Commitments or Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments (or any earlier Extended Revolving Credit Commitments) of an Existing Class subject to such Extension Request converted or exchanged into Extended Loans/Commitments shall notify the Administrative Agent (an “Extension Election”) on or prior to the date specified in such Extension Request of the amount of its Term Loans, Revolving Credit Commitments and/or Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments (and/or any earlier Extended Revolving Credit Commitments) which it has elected to convert or exchange into Extended Loans/Commitments (subject to any minimum denomination requirements imposed by the Administrative Agent). In the event that the aggregate amount of Term Loans, Revolving Credit Commitments and Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments (and any earlier extended Extended Revolving Credit Commitments) subject to Extension Elections exceeds the amount of Extended Loans/Commitments requested pursuant to the Extension Request, Term Loans, Revolving Credit Commitments, Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments or earlier extended Extended Revolving Credit Commitments, as applicable, subject to Extension Elections shall be converted to or exchanged to Extended Loans/Commitments on a pro rata basis (subject to such rounding requirements as may be established by the Administrative Agent) based on the amount of Term Loans, Revolving Credit Commitments, Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments and earlier extended Extended Revolving Credit Commitments included in each such Extension Election or as may be otherwise agreed to in the applicable Extension Agreement. Notwithstanding the conversion of any Existing Revolving Credit Commitment into an Extended Revolving Credit Commitment, unless expressly agreed by the holders of each affected Existing Revolving Credit Commitment of the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class, such Extended Revolving Credit Commitment shall not be treated more favorably than all Existing Revolving Credit Commitments of the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class for purposes of the obligations of a Revolving Credit Lender in respect of Swingline Loans under Section 2.1(d) and Letters of Credit under Section 3, except that the applicable Extension Agreement may provide that the Swingline Maturity Date and/or the last day for issuing Letters of Credit may be extended and the related obligations to make Swingline Loans and issue Letters of Credit may be continued (pursuant to mechanics to be specified in the applicable Extension Agreement) so long as the Swingline Lender and/or each applicable Letter of Credit Issuer have consented to such extensions (it being understood that no consent of any other Lender shall be required in connection with any such extension). (d) Extended Loans/Commitments shall be established pursuant to an amendment (an “Extension Agreement”) to this Agreement (which, except to the extent expressly contemplated by the penultimate sentence of this Section 2.15(d) and notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Section 13.1, shall not require the consent of any Lender other than the Extending Lenders with respect to the Extended Loans/Commitments established thereby) executed by the Credit Parties, the Extending Lenders and the Administrative Agent. In addition to any terms and changes required or permitted by this Section 2.15(d), each Extension Agreement in respect of Extended Term Loans shall, to the extent applicable, amend the scheduled amortization payments pursuant to Section 2.5 or the applicable Incremental Agreement or Extension Agreement with respect to the Existing Class of Term Loans from which the Extended Term Loans were exchanged to reduce each scheduled Repayment Amount for the Existing Class in the same proportion as the amount of Term Loans of the Existing Class is to be reduced pursuant to such Extension Agreement (it being understood that the amount of any Repayment Amount payable with respect to any individual Term Loan of such Existing Class that is not an Extended Term Loan shall not be reduced as a result thereof). In connection with any Extension Agreement, the Borrower shall deliver an opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and addressed to the Administrative Agent and the applicable Extending Lenders (i) as to the enforceability of such Extension Agreement, this Agreement as amended thereby, and such of the other Credit Documents (if any) as may be amended thereby (in the case of such other Credit Documents as contemplated by the immediately preceding sentence) and covering customary matters and (ii) to the effect that such Extension Agreement, including the Extended Loans/Commitments provided for therein, does not breach or result in a default under the provisions of Section 13.1 of this Agreement. (e) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, (A) on any date on which any Existing Term Loan Class or Class of Existing Revolving Credit Commitments is converted or exchanged to extend the related scheduled maturity date(s) in accordance with paragraph (a) above (an “Extension Date”), (I) in the case of the existing Term Loans of each Extending Lender, the aggregate principal amount of such existing Term -126- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
Loans shall be deemed reduced by an amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of Extended Term Loans so converted or exchanged by such Lender on such date, and the Extended Term Loans shall be established as a separate Class of Term Loans (together with any other Extended Term Loans so established on such date), and (II) in the case of the Existing Revolving Credit Commitments of each Extending Lender under any Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class, the aggregate principal amount of such Existing Revolving Credit Commitments shall be deemed reduced by an amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of Extended Revolving Credit Commitments so converted or exchanged by such Lender on such date (or by any greater amount as may be agreed by the Borrower and such Lender), and such Extended Revolving Credit Commitments shall be established as a separate Class of revolving credit commitments from the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class and from any other Existing Revolving Credit Commitments (together with any other Extended Revolving Credit Commitments so established on such date) and (B) if, on any Extension Date, any Existing Revolving Credit Loans of any Extending Lender are outstanding under the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class, such Existing Revolving Credit Loans (and any related participations) shall be deemed to be converted or exchanged to Extended Revolving Credit Loans (and related participations) of the applicable Class in the same proportion as such Extending Lender’s Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitments to Extended Revolving Credit Commitments of such Class. (f) In the event that the Administrative Agent determines in its sole discretion that the allocation of Extended Term Loans of a given Extension Series or the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments of a given Extension Series, in each case to a given Lender was incorrectly determined as a result of manifest administrative error in the receipt and processing of an Extension Election timely submitted by such Lender in accordance with the procedures set forth in the applicable Extension Agreement, then the Administrative Agent, the Borrower and such affected Lender may (and hereby are authorized to), in their sole discretion and without the consent of any other Lender, enter into an amendment to this Agreement and the other Credit Documents (each, a “Corrective Extension Agreement”) within 15 days following the effective date of such Extension Agreement, as the case may be, which Corrective Extension Agreement shall (i) provide for the conversion or exchange and extension of Term Loans under the Existing Term Loan Class or Existing Revolving Credit Commitments (and related Revolving Credit Exposure), as the case may be, in such amount as is required to cause such Lender to hold Extended Term Loans or Extended Revolving Credit Commitments (and related revolving credit exposure) of the applicable Extension Series into which such other Term Loans or commitments were initially converted or exchanged, as the case may be, in the amount such Lender would have held had such administrative error not occurred and had such Lender received the minimum allocation of the applicable Loans or Commitments to which it was entitled under the terms of such Extension Agreement, in the absence of such error, (ii) be subject to the satisfaction of such conditions as the Administrative Agent, the Borrower and such Lender may agree (including conditions of the type required to be satisfied for the effectiveness of an Extension Agreement described in Section 2.15(d)), and (iii) effect such other amendments of the type (with appropriate reference and nomenclature changes) described in the penultimate sentence of Section 2.15(d). (g) No conversion or exchange of Loans or Commitments pursuant to any Extension Agreement in accordance with this Section 2.15 shall constitute a voluntary or mandatory payment or prepayment for purposes of this Agreement. (h) This Section 2.15 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.4 or Section 13.1 to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, any of the provisions of this Section 2.15 may be amended with the consent of the Required Lenders; provided that no such amendment shall require any Lender to provide any Extended Loans/Commitments without such Lender’s consent. 2.16 Defaulting Lenders. Notwithstanding 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 4.1(a); -127- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
(b) the Commitment of and the Revolving Credit Exposure of such Defaulting Lender shall not be included in determining whether all Lenders or the Required Lenders or any other requisite Lenders have taken or may take any action hereunder (including any consent to any amendment or waiver pursuant to Section 13.1); provided that (i) 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 and (ii) the Commitment of any Defaulting Lender may not be increased or extended without the consent of such Lender; (c) if any Swingline Exposure or Letter of Credit Exposure exists at the time a Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then (i) all or any part of such Letter of Credit Exposure of such Defaulting Lender and such Swingline Exposure of such Defaulting Lender will, subject to the limitation in the proviso below, automatically be reallocated (effective on the day such Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender) among the Non-Defaulting Lenders pro rata in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of the applicable Class of Revolving Credit Commitments; provided that (A) each Non-Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Credit Exposure may not in any event exceed the Revolving Credit Commitment of such Non-Defaulting Lender as in effect at the time of such reallocation and (B) subject to Section 13.21, neither such reallocation nor any payment by a Non-Defaulting Lender pursuant thereto will constitute a waiver or release of any claim the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, any Letter of Credit Issuer, the Swingline Lender or any other Lender may have against such Defaulting Lender or cause such Defaulting Lender to be a Non-Defaulting Lender, (ii) to the extent that all or any portion (the “unreallocated portion”) of the Defaulting Lender’s Letter of Credit Exposure and Swingline Exposure cannot, or can only partially, be so reallocated to Non-Defaulting Lenders, whether by reason of the first proviso in Section 2.16(c)(i) above or otherwise, the Borrower shall within two Business Days following notice by the Administrative Agent (x) first, prepay such Swingline Exposure (after giving effect to any partial reallocation pursuant to clause (i) above) and (y) second, Cash Collateralize such Defaulting Lender’s Letter of Credit Exposure (after giving pro forma effect to any partial reallocation pursuant to clause (i) above), in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 3.8 for so long as such Letter of Credit Exposure is outstanding, (iii) if the Borrower Cash Collateralizes any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s Letter of Credit Exposure pursuant to the requirements of this Section 2.16(c), the Borrower shall not be required to pay any fees to such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 4.1(c) with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s Letter of Credit Exposure during the period such Defaulting Lender’s Letter of Credit Exposure is Cash Collateralized, (iv) if the Letter of Credit Exposure of the Non-Defaulting Lenders is reallocated pursuant to the requirements of this Section 2.16(c), then the fees payable to the Lenders pursuant to Section 4.1(c) shall be adjusted in accordance with such Non-Defaulting Lenders’ Revolving Credit Commitment Percentages of the applicable Class of Revolving Credit Commitments and the Borrower shall not be required to pay any fees to the Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 4.1(c) with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s Letter of Credit Exposure during the period that such Defaulting Lender’s Letter of Credit Exposure is reallocated, or (v) if any Defaulting Lender’s Letter of Credit Exposure is neither Cash Collateralized nor reallocated pursuant to the requirements of this Section 2.16(c), then, without prejudice to any rights or remedies of any Letter of Credit Issuer or any Lender hereunder, all fees payable under Section 4.1(c) with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s Letter of Credit Exposure shall be payable to the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer until such Letter of Credit Exposure is Cash Collateralized and/or reallocated; (d) (i) the Letter of Credit Issuers will not be required to issue any new Letter of Credit or amend any outstanding Letter of Credit to increase the face amount thereof, alter the drawing terms thereunder or extend the expiry date thereof, unless such Letter of Credit Issuer is reasonably satisfied that any exposure that would result from the exposure to such Defaulting Lender is eliminated or fully covered by the Revolving Credit Commitments of the Non-Defaulting Lenders or by Cash Collateralization or a combination thereof in accordance with the requirements of Section 2.16(c) above or otherwise in a manner reasonably satisfactory to such Letter of Credit Issuer; and (ii) the Swingline Lender will be not required to fund any Swingline Loans unless the Swingline Lender is reasonably satisfied that any exposure that would result from the exposure to such Defaulting Lender is eliminated or fully covered by the Revolving Credit Commitments of the Non-Defaulting Lenders or a combination thereof in accordance with the requirements of Section 2.16(c) above. -128- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
(e) If the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, the Swingline Lender and each applicable Letter of Credit Issuer agree in writing in their discretion that a Lender that is a Defaulting Lender should no longer be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon, as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein, such Lender will, to the extent applicable, purchase at par that portion of outstanding Revolving Credit Loans of the other Revolving Credit Lenders or take such other actions as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause such outstanding Revolving Credit Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans to be held on a pro rata basis by the Revolving Credit Lenders (including such Lender) in accordance with their applicable percentages, whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender and will be a Non-Defaulting Lender and any applicable Cash Collateral shall be promptly returned to the Borrower and any Letter of Credit Exposure and Swingline Exposure of such Lender reallocated pursuant to the requirements of Section 2.16(c) shall be reallocated back to such Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; provided that, except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Non-Defaulting Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from such Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender; and (f) Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Administrative Agent for the account of that Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Section 11 or otherwise, and including any amounts made available to the Administrative Agent by that Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 13.8), shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Administrative Agent as follows: first, to the payment of any amounts owing by that Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent hereunder; second, in the case of a Revolving Credit Lender, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing by that Defaulting Lender to each Letter of Credit Issuer and the Swingline Lender hereunder; third, as the Borrower may request (so long as no Default or Event of Default exists), to the funding of any Loan in respect of which that Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Administrative Agent; fourth, if so determined by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to be held in a non-interest bearing deposit account and released pro rata in order to (x) satisfy such Defaulting Lender’s potential future funding obligations with respect to Loans under this Agreement and (y) Cash Collateralize, in accordance with Section 3.8, the Letter of Credit Issuer’s potential future fronting exposure with respect to such Defaulting Lender with respect to future Letters of Credit issued under this Agreement; fifth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders, the Letter of Credit Issuers or the Swingline Lender as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender, such Letter of Credit Issuer or such Swingline Lender against that Defaulting Lender as a result of that Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; sixth, so long as no Default or Event of Default exists, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries pursuant to any Secured Hedging Agreement with such Defaulting Lender as certified by an Authorized Officer of the Borrower to the Administrative Agent (with a copy to the Defaulting Lender) prior to such date of payment; seventh, so long as no Default or Event of Default exists, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Borrower as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Borrower against that Defaulting Lender as a result of that Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and eighth, to that Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that, if such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Loans or a payment of any Unpaid Drawings, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the relevant Loans of, and Unpaid Drawings owed to, the relevant non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied in the manner set forth in this Section 2.16(f). Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender or to post Cash Collateral pursuant to Section 3.8 shall be deemed paid to and redirected by that Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto. 2.17 Term Loan Exchange Notes. (a) The Borrower may by written notice to the Administrative Agent elect to offer (each, a “Permitted Debt Exchange Offer”) to issue to Lenders holding Term Loans under this Agreement first priority senior secured notes and/or junior lien secured notes and/or unsecured notes (the “Term Loan Exchange Notes”) in exchange for the Term Loans (each such exchange, a “Permitted Debt Exchange”); provided that such Term Loan Exchange Notes may not be in an aggregate principal amount (or accreted value) greater than the aggregate principal amount -129- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
of Term Loans being exchanged plus unpaid accrued interest, fees and premiums (including tender premiums) (if any) thereon, defeasance costs, underwriting discounts and fees, commissions and expenses (including OID, closing payments, upfront fees or similar fees) in connection with the issuance of the Term Loan Exchange Notes plus additional amounts permitted to be incurred under Section 10.1. Each such notice shall specify the date (each, a “Term Loan Exchange Effective Date”) on which the Borrower proposes that the Term Loan Exchange Notes shall be issued, which shall be a date not less than fifteen days after the date on which such notice is delivered to the Administrative Agent (or such shorter period as may be agreed by the Administrative Agent); provided that: (w) the Weighted Average Life to Maturity of such Term Loan Exchange Notes shall be equal to or greater than the then remaining Weighted Average Life to Maturity of the Term Loans being exchanged (provided that the foregoing requirements of this clause (ii) shall not apply to the extent such Indebtedness (A) is subject to Customary Escrow Provisions or constitutes a customary bridge facility, so long as the Indebtedness that is released from escrow or the long-term Indebtedness into which any such customary bridge facility is to be converted or exchanged, as applicable, otherwise satisfies the requirements of this clause (ii) and such conversion or exchange is subject only to conditions customary for similar conversions or exchanges, (B) constitutes customary term loan “A” facilities provided by commercial banks or similar financial institutions (as determined by the Borrower in good faith), (C) is Incurred in connection with an Acquisition, Investment (including any Investment in new facilities or projects) or other similar transaction or (D) constitutes Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness in an amount up to the Incremental/Refinancing Maturity Limitation Excluded Amount) (it being understood that acceleration or mandatory repayment, prepayment, redemption or repurchase of such Term Loan Exchange Notes upon the occurrence of an event of default, a change in control, an event of loss or an asset disposition shall not be deemed to constitute a change in the stated final maturity thereof); (x) if secured, such Term Loan Exchange Notes shall rank equal to or junior in right of payment and of security with the Loans and Commitments being exchanged hereunder; (y) all other terms and conditions (other than interest rates (including through fixed interest rates or payment-in-kind interest), interest rate margins, rate floors, fees, AHYDO Catch-Up Payments, funding discounts, original issue discounts, closing payments, maturity, currency types and denominations, and redemption or prepayment terms and premiums) applicable to such Term Loan Exchange Notes shall reflect market terms and conditions, when taken as a whole, at the time of Incurrence (as determined in good faith by the Borrower or not materially more restrictive on the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries than the terms of this Agreement, when taken as a whole); provided that the Term Loan Exchange Notes may have the benefit of any Previously Absent Covenant if the Administrative Agent has been given prompt written notice thereof and this Agreement shall have been amended to include such Previously Absent Covenant; and (z) the obligations in respect of the Term Loan Exchange Notes (A) shall not be secured by Liens on any asset of the Borrower and the Restricted Subsidiaries other than assets constituting Collateral, (B) if such Term Loan Exchange Notes are secured, the Liens on Collateral securing such Term Loan Exchange Notes shall rank equal in priority (but without regard to the control of remedies) with, or junior in priority to, the Liens on the Collateral securing the Obligations and all security therefor shall be granted pursuant to documentation that is not more restrictive than the Security Documents in any material respect taken as a whole (as determined by the Borrower) and the representative for such Term Loan Exchange Notes shall enter into a Customary Intercreditor Agreement (it being understood that junior Liens are not required to be equal to other junior Liens, and that Indebtedness secured by junior Liens may be secured by Liens that are equal to, or junior in priority to, other Liens that are junior to the Liens securing the Obligations), or (C) shall not be incurred or guaranteed by any Restricted Subsidiary unless such Restricted Subsidiary is a Credit Party which shall have previously or substantially concurrently guaranteed or borrowed such Term Loans being exchanged. (b) The Borrower shall offer to issue Term Loan Exchange Notes in exchange for the Class of Term Loans to all Lenders holding such Class of Term Loans (other than any Lender that, if requested by the Borrower, is unable to certify that it is (i) a “qualified institutional buyer” (as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act), (ii) an institutional “accredited investor” (as defined in Rule 501 under the Securities Act) or (iii) not a “U.S. person” (as defined in Rule 902 under the Securities Act) on a pro rata basis, and such Lenders may choose to accept or decline to receive such Term Loan Exchange Notes in their sole discretion. Any such Term Loans exchanged for Term Loan Exchange Notes shall be automatically and immediately, without further action by any Person, cancelled on the Term Loan Exchange Effective Date for all purposes of this Agreement (and, if requested by the Administrative Agent, any applicable exchanging Lender shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent an Assignment and Acceptance, or such other form as may be reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent, in respect thereof pursuant to which the respective Lender assigns its interest in the Term Loans being exchanged pursuant to the Permitted Debt Exchange to the Borrower for immediate cancellation), and accrued and unpaid interest on such -130- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
Term Loans shall be paid to the exchanging Lenders on the Term Loan Exchange Effective Date, or, if agreed to by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, the next scheduled date interest is due with respect to such Term Loans (with such interest accruing until the date of consummation of such Permitted Debt Exchange). (c) If the aggregate principal amount of all Term Loans (calculated on the face amount thereof) of a given Class tendered by Lenders in respect of the relevant Permitted Debt Exchange Offer (with no Lender being permitted to tender a principal amount of Term Loans which exceeds the principal amount thereof of the applicable Class actually held by it) shall exceed the maximum aggregate principal amount of Term Loans of such Class offered to be exchanged by the Borrower pursuant to such Permitted Debt Exchange Offer, then the Borrower shall exchange Term Loans under the relevant Class tendered by such Lenders ratably up to such maximum based on the respective principal amounts so tendered, or, if such Permitted Debt Exchange Offer shall have been made with respect to multiple Classes without specifying a maximum aggregate principal amount offered to be exchanged for each Class, and the aggregate principal amount of all Term Loans (calculated on the face amount thereof) of all Classes tendered by Lenders in respect of the relevant Permitted Debt Exchange Offer (with no Lender being permitted to tender a principal amount of Term Loans which exceeds the principal amount thereof actually held by it) shall exceed the maximum aggregate principal amount of Term Loans of all relevant Classes offered to be exchanged by the Borrower pursuant to such Permitted Debt Exchange Offer, then the Borrower shall exchange Term Loans across all Classes subject to such Permitted Debt Exchange Offer tendered by such Lenders ratably up to such maximum amount based on the respective principal amounts so tendered. (d) With respect to all Permitted Debt Exchanges effected by the Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.17, unless waived by the Borrower, such Permitted Debt Exchange Offer shall be made for not less than $50,000,000 (or, in the case of Term Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency, €50,000,000, CAN$50,000,000, £50,000,000, ¥500,000 or A$50,000,000, or like amount in any other Alternative Currency, as applicable) in aggregate principal amount of Term Loans; provided that subject to the foregoing the Borrower may at its election specify (A) as a condition (a “Minimum Tender Condition”) to consummating any such Permitted Debt Exchange that a minimum amount (to be determined and specified in the relevant Permitted Debt Exchange Offer in the Borrower’s discretion) of Term Loans of any or all applicable Classes be tendered and/or (B) as a condition (a “Maximum Tender Condition”) to consummating any such Permitted Debt Exchange that no more than a maximum amount (to be determined and specified in the relevant Permitted Debt Exchange Offer in the Borrower’s discretion) of Term Loans of any or all applicable Classes will be accepted for exchange. The Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereby acknowledge and agree that this Section 2.17 shall supersede any provisions of Section 2.5, Section 5 and Section 13.1 to the contrary, waive the requirements of any other provision of this Agreement or any other Credit Document that may otherwise prohibit the Incurrence of any Indebtedness expressly provided for by this Section 2.17 and hereby agree not to assert any Default or Event of Default in connection with the implementation of any such Permitted Debt Exchange or any other transaction contemplated by this Section 2.17. (e) In connection with each Permitted Debt Exchange, the Borrower shall provide the Administrative Agent at least five Business Days’ (or such shorter period as may be agreed by the Administrative Agent) prior written notice thereof, and the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, acting reasonably, shall mutually agree to such procedures as may be necessary or advisable to accomplish the purposes of this Section 2.17; provided that the terms of any Permitted Debt Exchange Offer shall provide that the date by which the relevant Lenders are required to indicate their election to participate in such Permitted Debt Exchange shall be not less than five Business Days following the date on which the Permitted Debt Exchange Offer is made. The Borrower shall provide the final results of such Permitted Debt Exchange to the Administrative Agent no later than one Business Day prior to the proposed date of effectiveness for such Permitted Debt Exchange and the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to conclusively rely on such results. (f) The Borrower shall be responsible for compliance with, and hereby agrees to comply with, all applicable securities and other laws in connection with each Permitted Debt Exchange, it being understood and agreed that (x) neither the Administrative Agent nor any Lender assumes any responsibility in connection with the Borrower’s compliance with such laws in connection with any Permitted Debt Exchange and (y) each Lender shall -131- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
be solely responsible for its compliance with any applicable “insider trading” laws and regulations to which such Lender may be subject under the Exchange Act. SECTION 3.

(a) Subject to and upon the terms and conditions herein set forth, at any time and from time to time on and after the Closing Date and prior to the date that is three (3) Business Days prior to the Revolving Credit Maturity Date, each Letter of Credit Issuer agrees to issue (or cause its Affiliates or other financial institution with which the Letter of Credit Issuer shall have entered into an agreement regarding the issuance of letters of credit hereunder, to issue on its behalf), upon the request of and for the account of the Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary, letters of credit (each, a “Letter of Credit”) in such form as may be approved by such Letter of Credit Issuer in its reasonable discretion; provided that the Borrower shall be a co-applicant, and be jointly and severally liable, with respect to each Letter of Credit issued for the account of a Restricted Subsidiary. All Letters of Credit shall be denominated in Dollars or any Alternative Currency. (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) no Letter of Credit shall be issued the Stated Amount of which, when added to the Letter of Credit Obligations at such time, would exceed the Letter of Credit Sub-Commitment then in effect, (ii) no Letter of Credit shall be issued the Stated Amount of which, when added to the Letter of Credit Obligations and the Revolving Credit Loans and Swingline Loans outstanding at such time, would exceed the Total Revolving Credit Commitment then in effect, (iii) no Letter of Credit shall be issued if, after giving effect to such issuance any Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of the sum of the Letter of Credit Obligations and the Revolving Credit Loans outstanding at such time, would exceed such Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment then in effect, (iv) each Letter of Credit shall have an expiration date occurring no later than the earlier of (x) one year after the date of issuance thereof, unless otherwise agreed upon by the Administrative Agent and the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer or as provided under Section 3.2(e), and (y) the Letter of Credit Maturity Date, (v) each Letter of Credit shall be denominated in Dollars or any Alternative Currency, (vi) no Letter of Credit shall be issued if it would be illegal under any Applicable Law for the beneficiary of the Letter of Credit to have a Letter of Credit issued in its favor, (vii) no Letter of Credit shall be issued after the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer has received a written notice from the Borrower or the Administrative Agent stating that a Default or an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing until such time as such Letter of Credit Issuer shall have received a written notice of (x) rescission of such notice from the party or parties originally delivering such notice or (y) the waiver of such Default or Event of Default in accordance with the provisions of Section 13.1 or that such Default or Event of Default is no longer continuing and (viii) unless otherwise agreed by the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer, no Letter of Credit shall be required to be issued by such Letter of Credit Issuer the Stated Amount of which, when added to the Stated Amount of all other Letters of Credit issued by such Letter of Credit Issuer at such time, would exceed such Letter of Credit Issuer’s Letter of Credit Sub-Commitment Obligation. No Letter of Credit Issuer shall be required to issue letters of credit (other than standby letters of credit) unless it agrees to do so in its sole discretion. (c) In connection with the establishment of any Extended Revolving Credit Commitments or Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments and subject to the availability of unused Commitments with respect to such newly established Class and the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 7, the Borrower may, with the written consent of the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer, designate any outstanding Letter of Credit to be a Letter of Credit issued pursuant to such Class of Extended Revolving Credit Commitments or Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments, as applicable. Upon such designation such Letter of Credit shall no longer be deemed to be issued and outstanding under such prior Class and shall instead be deemed to be issued and outstanding under such newly established Class of Extended Revolving Credit Commitments or Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments, as applicable. (d) On the Closing Date, without further action by any party hereto (including the delivery of a Letter of Credit Request or any consent of, or confirmation by or to, the Administrative Agent), subject to the terms of this Section 3, (i) each Existing Letter of Credit set forth on Schedule 1.1(b) hereto issued by a Letter of Credit Issuer hereunder shall become a Letter of Credit outstanding under this Agreement, shall be deemed to be a Letter of Credit issued under this Agreement and shall be subject to the terms and conditions hereof (including Section 4.1) as if -132- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
each such Letter of Credit was issued by the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer pursuant to this Agreement (provided that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any such Existing Letter of Credit, the Borrower shall be deemed to be a co-applicant, and shall be jointly and severally liable, with respect to each such Letter of Credit issued for the account of a Restricted Subsidiary that is not a Co-Borrower) and (ii) each Letter of Credit Issuer that has issued an Existing Letter of Credit shall be deemed to have granted each Letter of Credit Participant in respect thereof and each Letter of Credit Participant in respect thereof shall be deemed to have acquired from such Letter of Credit Issuer, on the terms and conditions of Section 3.3 hereof, for such Letter of Credit Participant’s own account and risk, an undivided participation interest in such Letter of Credit Issuer’s obligations and rights under each such Existing Letter of Credit equal to such Letter of Credit Participant’s Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage, as applicable, of (A) the outstanding amount available to be drawn under such Existing Letter of Credit and (B) the aggregate amount of any outstanding reimbursement obligations in respect thereof. 3.2 Letter of Credit Requests. (a) Whenever the Borrower (or the Borrower on behalf of any of its Restricted Subsidiary) desires that a Letter of Credit be issued (or amended, renewed or extended), it shall give the Administrative Agent and the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer a Letter of Credit Request by no later than 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) (i) at least three (or such lesser number as may be agreed upon by the Administrative Agent and the Letter of Credit Issuer) Business Days prior to the proposed date of issuance, amendment, renewal or extension for any Letter of Credit for the account of the Borrower or any Subsidiary Guarantor (provided that such Subsidiary Guarantor shall have also signed the applicable Letter of Credit Request), (ii) at least five (or such lesser number as may be agreed upon by the Administrative Agent and the Letter of Credit Issuer) Business Days prior to the proposed date of issuance, amendment, renewal or extension for any Letter of Credit for the account of any Restricted Subsidiary that is a Domestic Subsidiary that is not a Credit Party and (iii) at least ten (or such lesser number as may be agreed upon by the Administrative Agent and such Letter of Credit Issuer) Business Days prior to the date of issuance, amendment, renewal or extension for any Letter of Credit for the account of any Foreign Restricted Subsidiary. Each Letter of Credit Request shall be executed by the Borrower and sent by facsimile, by United States mail, by overnight courier, by electronic transmission using the system provided by the Letter of Credit Issuer, by personal delivery or by any other means acceptable to the Letter of Credit Issuer. (b) In the case of a request for an initial issuance of a Letter of Credit, such Letter of Credit Request shall specify: (A) the proposed issuance date of the requested Letter of Credit (which shall be a Business Day); (B) the Stated Amount and the currency thereof; (C) the expiry date thereof (which shall be not later than the earlier of (x) one year after the date of issuance thereof, unless otherwise agreed upon by the Administrative Agent and the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer or as provided under Section 3.2(e), and (y) the Letter of Credit Maturity Date); (D) the name and address of the beneficiary thereof; (E) the documents to be presented by such beneficiary in case of any drawing thereunder; (F) the full text of any certificate to be presented by such beneficiary in case of any drawing thereunder and (G) such other matters as the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer may reasonably require. In the case of a request for an amendment of any outstanding Letter of Credit, such Letter of Credit Request shall specify: (A) the Letter of Credit to be amended; (B) the proposed date of amendment thereof (which shall be a Business Day); (C) the nature of the proposed amendment; and (D) such other matters as the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer may reasonably require. (c) Promptly after receipt of any Letter of Credit Request, the Letter of Credit Issuer will confirm with the Administrative Agent in writing that the Administrative Agent has received a copy of such Letter of Credit Request from the Borrower and, if not, the Letter of Credit Issuer will provide the Administrative Agent with a copy thereof. Unless the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer has received written notice from the Required Revolving Credit Lenders, the Administrative Agent, the Borrower or any other Credit Party at least two Business Days prior to the requested date of issuance or amendment of the Letter of Credit, that one or more applicable conditions contained in Section 7 shall not then be satisfied, then, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Letter of Credit Issuer shall, on the requested date, issue a Letter of Credit for the account of the Borrower (or the applicable Restricted Subsidiary) or enter into the applicable amendment, as the case may be, in each case in accordance with the terms hereof. -133- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
(d) The making of each Letter of Credit Request shall be deemed to be a representation and warranty by the Borrower that the Letter of Credit may be issued in accordance with, and will not violate the requirements of, Section 3.1(b). (e) If the Borrower so requests in any applicable Letter of Credit Request, the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer may agree to issue a Letter of Credit that has automatic extension provisions (each, an “Auto-Extension Letter of Credit”); provided that any such Auto-Extension Letter of Credit must permit such Letter of Credit Issuer to prevent any such extension at least once in each twelve-month period (commencing with the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit) by giving prior notice to the beneficiary thereof not later than a day (the “Non-Extension Notice Date”) in each such twelve-month period to be agreed upon at the time such Letter of Credit is issued. Unless otherwise directed by the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer, the Borrower shall not be required to make a specific request to such Letter of Credit Issuer for any such extension. Once an Auto-Extension Letter of Credit has been issued, the Lenders shall be deemed to have authorized (but may not require) such Letter of Credit Issuer to permit the extension of such Letter of Credit at any time to an expiry date not later than the Letter of Credit Maturity Date; provided, however, that such Letter of Credit Issuer shall not permit any such extension if (A) such Letter of Credit Issuer has determined that it would not be permitted, or would have no obligation, at such time to issue such Letter of Credit in its revised form (as extended) under the terms hereof (by reason of the provisions of Section 3.1(b) or otherwise), or (B) it has received written notice on or before the day that is ten Business Days before the Non-Extension Notice Date (1) from the Administrative Agent that the Required Revolving Credit Lenders have elected not to permit such extension or (2) from the Administrative Agent, the Required Revolving Credit Lenders or the Borrower that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Section 7 are not then satisfied, and in each such case directing such Letter of Credit Issuer not to permit such extension. (f) Promptly after its delivery of any Letter of Credit or any amendment, renewal or extension to a Letter of Credit to an advising bank with respect thereto or to the beneficiary thereof, such Letter of Credit Issuer will notify the Administrative Agent of such delivery, amendment, renewal or extension and will also deliver to the Borrower a true and complete copy of such Letter of Credit or amendment, renewal or extension. On the last Business Day of each March, June, September and December, each Letter of Credit Issuer shall provide the Administrative Agent a list of all Letters of Credit issued by it that are outstanding at such time. 3.3 Letter of Credit Participations. (a) Immediately upon the issuance by the Letter of Credit Issuer of any Letter of Credit, the Letter of Credit Issuer shall be deemed to have sold and transferred to each other Revolving Credit Lender (each such Revolving Credit Lender, in its capacity under this Section 3.3(a), a “Letter of Credit Participant”), and each such Letter of Credit Participant shall be deemed irrevocably and unconditionally to have purchased and received from the Letter of Credit Issuer, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation (each, a “Letter of Credit Participation”), to the extent of such Letter of Credit Participant’s Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage, in such Letter of Credit, each substitute letter of credit, each drawing made thereunder and the obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement with respect thereto, and any security therefor or guaranty pertaining thereto (although Letter of Credit Fees will be paid directly to the Administrative Agent for the ratable account of the Letter of Credit Participants as provided in Section 4.1(c) and the Letter of Credit Participants shall have no right to receive any portion of any fees paid to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Letter of Credit Issuer in respect of each Letter of Credit issued hereunder). (b) In determining whether to pay under any Letter of Credit, the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer shall have no obligation relative to the applicable Letter of Credit Participants other than to confirm to the Administrative Agent that any documents required to be delivered under such Letter of Credit have been delivered and that they appear to comply on their face with the requirements of such Letter of Credit. Any action taken or omitted to be taken by the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer under or in connection with any Letter of Credit issued by it, if taken or omitted in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct, as determined in a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, shall not create for such Letter of Credit Issuer any resulting liability. -134- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
(c) Whenever the Administrative Agent receives a payment in respect of an unpaid reimbursement obligation for the account of a Letter of Credit Issuer from the Borrower, the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to each applicable Letter of Credit Participant that has paid its Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of such reimbursement obligation, in Dollars (or, in respect of Letters of Credit denominated in an Alternative Currency, such Alternative Currency) and in immediately available funds, an amount equal to such Letter of Credit Participant’s share (based upon the proportionate aggregate amount originally funded or deposited by such Letter of Credit Participant to the aggregate amount funded or deposited by all Letter of Credit Participants) of the principal amount of such reimbursement obligation and interest thereon accruing after the purchase of the respective Letter of Credit Participations; provided that the amount paid to any Letter of Credit Participant shall not exceed the amount funded or deposited by such Letter of Credit Participant. (d) The obligations of the Letter of Credit Participants to purchase Letter of Credit Participations from the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer and make payments to the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer with respect to Letters of Credit shall be irrevocable and not subject to counterclaim, set-off or other defense or any other qualification or exception whatsoever and shall be made in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement under all circumstances, including under any of the following circumstances: (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents; (ii) the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other right that the Borrower may have at any time against a beneficiary named in a Letter of Credit, any transferee of any Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom any such beneficiary or transferee may be acting), the Administrative Agent, any Letter of Credit Issuer, any Lender or other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, any Letter of Credit, the transactions contemplated hereby or any unrelated transactions (including any underlying transaction between the Borrower and the beneficiary named in any such Letter of Credit); (iii) any draft, certificate or any other document presented under any Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect; (iv) the surrender or impairment of any security for the performance or observance of any of the terms of any of the Credit Documents; (v) the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default; or (vi) any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, including any other circumstance that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, any Credit Party or Restricted Subsidiary. 3.4 Agreement to Repay Letter of Credit Drawings. (a) The Borrower hereby agrees to reimburse the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer in Dollars (or, in respect of Letters of Credit denominated in an Alternative Currency, such Alternative Currency) with respect to any drawing under any Letter of Credit, by making payment, whether with its own funds, with the proceeds of Revolving Credit Loans or any other source, to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Letter of Credit Issuer in immediately available funds, for any payment or disbursement made by the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer under any Letter of Credit issued by it (with respect to each such amount so paid under a Letter of Credit until reimbursed, a “Unpaid Drawing”) (i) within one Business Day of the date of such payment or disbursement (or within two Business Days from such date of payment or disbursement, if the aggregate Revolving Credit Exposures of the applicable Class of Lenders equals the Total Revolving Credit Commitments of such Class of Lenders on the date of payment or disbursement), if the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer provides notice to the Borrower of such payment or disbursement prior to 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) on such next succeeding Business Day after the date of such payment or disbursement or (ii) if such notice is received after such time, on the next Business Day from the -135- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
receipt of such notice (or within two Business Days from the receipt of such notice, if the aggregate Revolving Credit Exposures of the applicable Class of Lenders equals the Total Revolving Credit Commitments of such Class of Lenders on the date of payment or disbursement) following the date of receipt of such notice (such required date for reimbursement under clause (i) or (ii), as applicable, (the “Required Reimbursement Date”), with interest on the amount so paid or disbursed by such Letter of Credit Issuer, from and including the date of such payment or disbursement to but excluding the Required Reimbursement Date, at the per annum rate for each day equal to the rate described in Section 2.8(a); provided that, notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary, with respect to any Letter of Credit, (i) unless the Borrower shall have notified the Administrative Agent and the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer prior to 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) on the Required Reimbursement Date that the Borrower intend to reimburse the Letter of Credit Issuer for the amount of such drawing with funds other than the proceeds of Revolving Credit Loans, the Borrower shall be deemed to have given a Notice of Borrowing requesting that the Lenders with Revolving Credit Commitments make Revolving Credit Loans (which shall be ABR Loans) on the Required Reimbursement Date in an amount equal to the amount of such drawing, and (ii) the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Letter of Credit Participant of such drawing and the amount of its Revolving Credit Loan to be made in respect thereof, and each Letter of Credit Participant shall be irrevocably obligated to make a Revolving Credit Loan to the Borrower in the manner deemed to have been requested in the amount of its Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of the applicable Unpaid Drawing by 12:00 noon (New York City time) on such Required Reimbursement Date by making the amount of such Revolving Credit Loan available to the Administrative Agent. Such Revolving Credit Loans made in respect of such Unpaid Drawing on such Required Reimbursement Date shall be made without regard to the Minimum Borrowing Amount and without regard to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 7. The Administrative Agent shall use the proceeds of such Revolving Credit Loans solely for the purpose of reimbursing the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer for the related Unpaid Drawing. If and to the extent such Letter of Credit Participant shall not have so made its Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of the amount of such payment available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Letter of Credit Issuer, or that in the sole judgment of the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer, such Revolving Credit Loan cannot for any reason be made on the date otherwise required above (including as a result of the commencement of a proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law in respect of the Borrower), each Letter of Credit Participant hereby agrees that its participation in such Unpaid Drawing shall remain outstanding in lieu of funding its portion of such Revolving Credit Loan and such Letter of Credit Participant agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer, forthwith on demand, such amount, together with interest thereon for each day from such date until the date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Letter of Credit Issuer at a rate per annum equal to the Overnight Rate from time to time then in effect, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer in connection with the foregoing. The failure of any Letter of Credit Participant to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Letter of Credit Issuer its Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of any payment under any Letter of Credit shall not relieve any other Letter of Credit Participant of its obligation hereunder to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Letter of Credit Issuer its Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of any payment under such Letter of Credit on the date required, as specified above, but no Letter of Credit Participant shall be responsible for the failure of any other Letter of Credit Participant to make available to the Administrative Agent such other Letter of Credit Participant’s Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of any such payment. (b) The obligations of the Borrower under this Section 3.4 to reimburse the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer with respect to Unpaid Drawings (including, in each case, interest thereon) shall be absolute and unconditional under any and all circumstances and irrespective of any set-off, counterclaim or defense to payment that the Borrower or any other Person may have or have had against such Letter of Credit Issuer, the Administrative Agent or any Lender (including in its capacity as a Letter of Credit Participant), including any defense based upon the failure of any drawing under a Letter of Credit (each, a “Drawing”) to conform to the terms of such Letter of Credit or any non-application or misapplication by the beneficiary of the proceeds of such Drawing; provided that the Borrower shall not be obligated to reimburse a Letter of Credit Issuer for any wrongful payment made by such Letter of Credit Issuer under the Letter of Credit issued by it as a result of acts or omissions constituting willful misconduct, bad faith or gross negligence on the part of the Letter of Credit Issuer as determined in the final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. -136- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
3.5 Increased Costs. If a Change in Law shall either (a) impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against letters of credit issued by a Letter of Credit Issuer, or any Letter of Credit Participant’s Letter of Credit Participation therein, (b) subject any Letter of Credit Issuer to any Tax (other than (i) Taxes indemnifiable under Section 5.4 and (ii) Excluded Taxes) in respect of Letters of Credit or Letter of Credit Participations therein or (c) impose on such Letter of Credit Issuer or any Letter of Credit Participant any other conditions affecting its obligations under this Agreement in respect of such Letter of Credit Issuer’s Letters of Credit (other than Taxes) or such Lender’s Letter of Credit Participations therein (other than Taxes), and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer or such Lender of issuing, maintaining or participating in any Letter of Credit by an amount which such Letter of Credit Issuer or such Lender reasonably deems material, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Letter of Credit Issuer or such Lender hereunder then, promptly after receipt of written demand to the Borrower by such Letter of Credit Issuer or such Letter of Credit Participant, as the case may be (a copy of which notice shall be sent by such Letter of Credit Issuer or such Letter of Credit Participant to the Administrative Agent), the Borrower shall pay to such Letter of Credit Issuer or such Letter of Credit Participant such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Letter of Credit Issuer or such Letter of Credit Participant for such increased cost or reduction, it being understood and agreed, however, that a Letter of Credit Issuer or a Letter of Credit Participant shall not be entitled to such compensation as a result of such Person’s compliance with, or pursuant to any request or directive to comply with, any such Applicable Law that would have existed in the event that a Change in Law had not occurred. A certificate submitted to the Borrower by such Letter of Credit Issuer or a Letter of Credit Participant, as the case may be (a copy of which certificate shall be sent by such Letter of Credit Issuer or such Letter of Credit Participant to the Administrative Agent), setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for the determination of such additional amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Letter of Credit Issuer or such Letter of Credit Participant as aforesaid shall be conclusive and binding on the Borrower absent clearly demonstrable error. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Lender or Letter of Credit Issuer shall be entitled to seek compensation under this Section 3.5 based on the occurrence of a Change in Law arising solely from (x) the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act or any requests, rules, guidelines or directives thereunder or issued in connection therewith or (y) Basel III or any requests, rules, guidelines or directives thereunder or issued in connection therewith, unless such Lender or Letter of Credit Issuer is generally seeking compensation from other borrowers in the U.S. leveraged loan market with respect to its similarly affected commitments, loans and/or participations under agreements with such borrowers having provisions similar to this Section 3.5. 3.6 New or Successor Letter of Credit Issuer. (a) Any Letter of Credit Issuer may resign as a Letter of Credit Issuer upon 30 days’ prior written notice to the Administrative Agent, the applicable Revolving Credit Lenders and the Borrower. Subject to the terms of the following sentence, the Borrower may replace any Letter of Credit Issuer for any reason upon written notice to the Administrative Agent and such Letter of Credit Issuer and the Borrower may add Letter of Credit Issuers at any time upon notice to the Administrative Agent and with the agreement of such new Letter of Credit Issuer. If a Letter of Credit Issuer shall resign or be replaced, or if the Borrower shall decide to add a new Letter of Credit Issuer under this Agreement, then the Borrower may appoint a successor issuer of Letters of Credit or a new Letter of Credit Issuer, as the case may be, with the consent of the Administrative Agent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), whereupon such successor issuer shall succeed to the rights, powers and duties of the replaced or resigning Letter of Credit Issuer under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents, or such new issuer of Letters of Credit shall be granted the rights, powers and duties of a Letter of Credit Issuer hereunder, and the term “Letter of Credit Issuer” shall mean such successor or such new issuer of Letters of Credit effective upon such appointment. At the time such resignation or replacement shall become effective, the Borrower shall pay to the resigning or replaced Letter of Credit Issuer all accrued and unpaid fees pursuant to Sections 4.1(b) and 4.1(d). The acceptance of any appointment as a Letter of Credit Issuer hereunder, whether as a successor issuer or new issuer of Letters of Credit in accordance with this Agreement, shall be evidenced by an agreement entered into by such new or successor issuer of Letters of Credit, in a form satisfactory to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, and, from and after the effective date of such agreement, such new or successor issuer of Letters of Credit shall become a “Letter of Credit Issuer” hereunder. After the resignation or replacement of a Letter of Credit Issuer hereunder, the resigning or replaced Letter of Credit Issuer shall remain a party hereto and shall continue to have all the rights and obligations of a Letter of Credit Issuer under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents with respect to Letters -137- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
of Credit issued by it prior to such resignation or replacement, but shall not be required to issue additional Letters of Credit or amend or renew Existing Letters of Credit. In connection with any resignation or replacement pursuant to this clause (a) (but, in case of any such resignation, only to the extent that a successor issuer of Letters of Credit shall have been appointed), either (i) the Borrower, the resigning or replaced Letter of Credit Issuer and the successor issuer of Letters of Credit shall arrange to have any outstanding Letters of Credit issued by the resigning or replaced Letter of Credit Issuer replaced with Letters of Credit issued by the successor issuer of Letters of Credit or (ii) the Borrower shall cause the successor issuer of Letters of Credit, if such successor issuer is reasonably satisfactory to the replaced or resigning Letter of Credit Issuer, to issue “back-stop” Letters of Credit naming the resigning or replaced Letter of Credit Issuer as beneficiary for each outstanding Letter of Credit issued by the resigning or replaced Letter of Credit Issuer, which new Letters of Credit shall have a face amount equal to the Letters of Credit being back-stopped, and the sole requirement for drawing on such new Letters of Credit shall be a drawing on the corresponding back-stopped Letters of Credit. After any resigning or replaced Letter of Credit Issuer’s resignation or replacement as Letter of Credit Issuer, the provisions of this Agreement relating to a Letter of Credit Issuer shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it (A) while it was a Letter of Credit Issuer under this Agreement or (B) at any time with respect to Letters of Credit issued by such Letter of Credit Issuer. (b) To the extent that there are, at the time of any resignation or replacement as set forth in clause (a) above, any outstanding Letters of Credit, nothing herein shall be deemed to impact or impair any rights and obligations of any of the parties hereto with respect to such outstanding Letters of Credit (including any obligations related to the payment of fees or the reimbursement or funding of amounts drawn), except that the Borrower, the resigning or replaced Letter of Credit Issuer and the successor issuer of Letters of Credit shall have the obligations regarding outstanding Letters of Credit described in clause (a) above. 3.7 Role of Letter of Credit Issuer. Each Revolving Credit Lender and the Borrower agree that, in paying any drawing under a Letter of Credit, the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer shall not have any responsibility to obtain any document (other than any sight draft, certificates and documents expressly required by the Letter of Credit) or to ascertain or inquire as to the validity or accuracy of any such document or the authority of the Person executing or delivering any such document. None of the Letter of Credit Issuer, any Related Party of the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer, the Administrative Agent, any of their respective Affiliates or any correspondent, participant or assignee of the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer shall be liable to any Lender for (i) any action taken or omitted in connection herewith at the request or with the approval of the Required Lenders or the Required Revolving Credit Lenders, as applicable, (ii) any action taken or omitted in the absence of gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct; or (iii) the due execution, effectiveness, validity or enforceability of any document or instrument related to any Letter of Credit or Issuer Document. The Borrower hereby assumes all risks of the acts or omissions of any beneficiary or transferee with respect to its use of any Letter of Credit; provided that this assumption is not intended to, and shall not, preclude the Borrower’s pursuing such rights and remedies as it may have against the beneficiary or transferee at law or under any other agreement. None of any Letter of Credit Issuer, any Related Party of the Letter of Credit Issuer, the Administrative Agent, any of their respective Affiliates or any correspondent, participant or assignee of the Letter of Credit Issuer shall be liable or responsible for any of the matters described in Section 3.3(d); provided that anything in such Section to the contrary notwithstanding, the Borrower may have a claim against the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer, and the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer may be liable to the Borrower, to the extent, but only to the extent, of any direct, as opposed to consequential or exemplary, damages suffered by the Borrower caused by such Letter of Credit Issuer’s willful misconduct or gross negligence, as determined in a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, or the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer’s willful failure to pay under any Letter of Credit after the presentation to it by the beneficiary of a sight draft and certificate(s) strictly complying with the terms and conditions of a Letter of Credit (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable order). In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer may accept documents that appear on their face to be in order, without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, and such Letter of Credit Issuer shall not be responsible for the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign a Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason. -138- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
3.8 Cash Collateral. (a) If, as of the Letter of Credit Maturity Date, there are any Letter of Credit Obligations, the Borrower shall promptly (and in any event not later than the following Business Day) Cash Collateralize the Letter of Credit Obligations that for any reason remain outstanding. Section 2.16 and Section 5.2 set forth certain additional circumstances under which Cash Collateral may be, or is required to be, delivered hereunder. (b) If any Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, the Required Revolving Credit Lenders may require that the Letter of Credit Obligations be Cash Collateralized; provided that, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default referred to in Section 11.5, the Borrower shall immediately Cash Collateralize the Letters of Credit then outstanding and no notice or request by or consent from the Required Lenders shall be required. (c) For purposes of this Agreement, “Cash Collateralize” or “Cash Collateralization” means to pledge and deposit with or deliver to the Collateral Agent, for the benefit of the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer collateral for the Letter of Credit Obligations cash or deposit account balances (“Cash Collateral”) in an amount equal to 100% of the amount of the Letter of Credit Obligations required to be Cash Collateralized pursuant to documentation in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer (which documents are hereby consented to by the Revolving Credit Lenders). Derivatives of such terms have corresponding meanings. The Borrower hereby grants to the Collateral Agent, for the benefit of the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer and the Letter of Credit Participants, a security interest in all such cash, deposit accounts and all balances therein and all proceeds of the foregoing. If at any time the Administrative Agent determines that Cash Collateral is subject to any right or claim of any Person other than the Collateral Agent, the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer or the Letter of Credit Participants, other than any Liens permitted under Section 10.2, or that the total amount of such Cash Collateral is less than the amount required to be delivered as described above, the Borrower will, promptly upon demand by the Administrative Agent, pay or provide to the Collateral Agent additional Cash Collateral in an amount sufficient to eliminate such deficiency. Cash Collateral shall be maintained in blocked, interest bearing deposit accounts with the Collateral Agent or any unaffiliated financial institution designated by the Collateral Agent. (d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Cash Collateral provided under this Agreement in respect of Letters of Credit shall be held and applied to the satisfaction of the specific Letter of Credit Obligations, obligations to fund participations therein, any interest accrued on such obligation and other obligations for which the Cash Collateral was so provided, prior to any other application of such property as may otherwise be provided for herein. (e) Cash Collateral (or the appropriate portion thereof) provided to reduce or secure any obligations herein shall be released promptly following (i) the elimination of the applicable obligation giving rise thereto or (ii) the determination by the Administrative Agent and the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer that there exists excess Cash Collateral; provided, however that (x) any such release shall be without prejudice to, and any disbursement or other transfer of Cash Collateral shall be and remain subject to, any other Lien conferred under the Credit Documents and the other applicable provisions of the Credit Documents, and (y) the Person providing Cash Collateral and the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer may agree that Cash Collateral shall not be released but instead held to support anticipated obligations. 3.9 Existing Letters of Credit. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, each Existing Letter of Credit that is outstanding on the Closing Date, listed on Schedule 1.1(b) shall, effective as of the Closing Date and without any further action by any Borrower, be continued as a Letter of Credit hereunder, from and after the Closing Date be deemed a Letter of Credit for all purposes hereof and be subject to and governed by the terms and conditions hereof. 3.10 Conflict with Issuer Documents. In the event of any conflict between the terms hereof and the terms of any Issuer Document, the terms hereof shall control. 3.11 Letters of Credit Issued for Restricted Subsidiaries. Notwithstanding that a Letter of Credit issued or outstanding hereunder is in support of any obligations of, or is for the account of, a Restricted Subsidiary, the -139- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
Borrower shall be obligated to reimburse the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer hereunder for any and all drawings under such Letter of Credit. The Borrower hereby acknowledges that the issuance of Letters of Credit for the account of Restricted Subsidiaries inures to the benefit of the Borrower, and that the Borrower’s business derives substantial benefits from the businesses of such Restricted Subsidiaries. 3.12 Other.

thereof) and (y) for the avoidance of doubt, any such repayment of Loans contemplated by the preceding clause shall be made in compliance with the requirements of Section 5.3(a) with respect to the

If, after giving pro forma effect to the prepayment of all outstanding Swingline Loans and Revolving Credit Loans of such Class, the Revolving Credit Exposures of such Class exceeds the Revolving Credit Commitment of such Class then in effect, the Borrower shall Cash Collateralize the Letters of Credit outstanding in relation to such Class to the extent of such excess. (c) Application to Repayment Amounts. (i) Subject to clause (ii) of this Section 5.2(c), the first proviso to Section 5.2(a)(i) and the penultimate proviso to Section 5.2(a)(ii), (A) each prepayment of Term Loans required by Sections 5.2(a)(i) and (ii) (other than in connection with a Debt Incurrence Prepayment Event) shall be allocated to the Classes of Term Loans outstanding, pro rata, based upon the applicable remaining Repayment Amounts due in respect of each such Class of Term Loans (excluding any Class of Term Loans that has agreed to receive a less than pro rata share of any such mandatory prepayment and taking into account any reduction in the amount of any required Excess Cash Flow payment to any Class of Term Loans that have been subject to a Section 13.6(g) transaction), shall be applied pro rata to Lenders within each Class, based upon the outstanding principal amounts owing to each such Lender under each such Class of Term Loans and shall be applied to reduce such scheduled Repayment Amounts within each such Class in accordance with Section 5.2(d)(ii) and (B) each prepayment of Term Loans required by Section 5.2(a)(i) in connection with a Debt Incurrence Prepayment Event (other than a Specified Debt Incurrence Prepayment Event), shall be allocated to each Class of Term Loans outstanding on a pro rata basis and shall be applied to reduce scheduled Repayment Amounts within each such Class in accordance with Section 5.2(d)(ii) and (C) each prepayment of Term Loans required by Section 5.2(a)(i) in connection with a Specified Debt Incurrence Prepayment Event shall be allocated to any Class of Term Loans outstanding as directed by the Borrower and shall be applied to reduce scheduled Repayment Amounts within each such Class in accordance with Section 5.2(d)(i); provided that, with respect to the allocation of such prepayments under clause (A) above only, between an Existing Term Loan Class and Extended Term Loans of the same Extension Series, the Borrower may allocate such prepayments as the Borrower may specify, subject to the limitation that the Borrower shall not allocate to Extended Term Loans of any Extension Series any such mandatory prepayment under such clause (A) unless such prepayment is accompanied by at least a pro rata prepayment, based upon the applicable remaining Repayment Amounts due in respect thereof, of the Term Loans of the Existing Term Loan Class, if any, from which such Extended Term Loans were converted or exchanged (or such Term Loans of the Existing Term Loan Class have otherwise been repaid in full).

(d) Application to Term Loans. (i) With respect to each prepayment of Term Loans elected by the Borrower pursuant to Section 5.1 or pursuant to a Specified Debt Incurrence Prepayment Event, such prepayments shall be applied to reduce Repayment Amounts in such order as the Borrower may specify (or, if not specified, in direct order of maturity) and the Borrower may designate the Types of Loans that are to be prepaid and the specific Borrowing(s) pursuant to which made, except that prepayments of Initial Term Loans and 2022 Incremental Term Loans shall be made on a pro rata basis to the Initial Term Loans and 2022 Incremental Term Loans (other than with respect to a Specified Debt Incurrence Prepayment Event); provided that the Borrower pays any amounts, if any, required to be paid -147- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
pursuant to Section 2.11 with respect to prepayments of Eurocurrency Loans made on any date other than the last day of the applicable Interest Period. In the absence of a designation by the Borrower as described in the preceding sentence, the Administrative Agent, shall, subject to the above, make such designation in a manner that minimizes the amount of payments required to be made by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.11. (ii) With respect to each prepayment of Term Loans by the Borrower required pursuant to Section 5.2(a) (other than in respect of a Specified Debt Incurrence Prepayment Event), such prepayments shall be applied to reduce Repayment Amounts in direct order of maturity and on a pro rata basis among the then outstanding Classes of Term Loans (other than any Class of Term Loans that has agreed to receive a less than pro rata share of any such mandatory prepayment) being prepaid irrespective of whether such outstanding Term Loans are ABR Loans or Eurocurrency Loans; provided that, if no Lender exercises the right to waive a given mandatory prepayment of the Term Loans pursuant to Section 5.2(c)(ii), then, with respect to such mandatory prepayment, the amount of such mandatory prepayment shall be applied first to Term Loans that are ABR Loans to the full extent thereof before application to Term Loans that are Eurocurrency Loans in a manner that minimizes the amount of any payments required to be made by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.11. (e) Application to Revolving Credit Loans; Mandatory Commitment Reduction. (i) With respect to each prepayment of Revolving Credit Loans, Extended Revolving Credit Loans and Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Loans elected by the Borrower pursuant to Section 5.1 or required by Section 5.2(b), the Borrower may designate (i) the Class and Types of Loans that are to be prepaid and the specific Borrowing(s) pursuant to which such Loans were made and (ii) the Class of Revolving Credit Loans, Extended Revolving Credit Loans or Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Loans to be prepaid; provided that (x) Eurocurrency Loans may be designated for prepayment pursuant to this Section 5.2 only on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto unless all Eurocurrency Loans with Interest Periods ending on such date of required prepayment and all ABR Loans have been paid in full; (y) each prepayment of any Loans made pursuant to a Borrowing shall be applied pro rata among such Loans of such Class (except that any prepayment made in connection with a reduction of the Commitments of such Class pursuant to Section 4.2 shall be applied pro rata based on the amount of the reduction in the Commitments of such Class of each applicable Lender); and (z) notwithstanding the provisions of the preceding clause (y), at the option of the Borrower, no prepayment made pursuant to Section 5.1 or Section 5.2(b) of Revolving Credit Loans, Extended Revolving Credit Loans or Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Loans of any Class shall be applied to the Loans of any Defaulting Lender. In the absence of a designation by the Borrower as described in the preceding sentence, the Administrative Agent shall, subject to the above, make such designation in a manner that minimizes the amount of any payments required to be made by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.11. (ii) With respect to each mandatory reduction and termination of Revolving Credit Commitments, Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments (and any previously extended Extended Revolving Credit Commitments) required by either clause (i) or (ii) of the proviso to Section 2.14(b), by Section 10.1(u)(i) or in connection with the Incurrence of any Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness Incurred to Refinance any Revolving Credit Commitments, Additional/Replacement Revolving Credit Commitments and/or Extended Revolving Credit Commitments, the Borrower may designate (A) the Classes of Commitments to be reduced and terminated and (B) the corresponding Classes of Loans to be prepaid; provided that (x) any such reduction and termination shall apply proportionately and permanently to reduce the Commitments of each of the Lenders within any such Class and (y) after giving pro forma effect to such termination or reduction and to any prepayments of Loans or cancellation or cash collateralization of letters of credit made on the date of each such reduction and termination in accordance with this Agreement, the aggregate amount of such Lenders’ credit exposures shall not exceed the remaining Commitments of such Lenders’ in respect of the Class reduced and terminated. In connection with any such termination or reduction, to the extent necessary, the participations hereunder in outstanding Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans may be required to be reallocated and related loans outstanding prepaid and then reborrowed, in each case in the manner contemplated by Section 2.14(f)(ii) (as modified to account for a termination or reduction, as opposed to an increase, of such Commitment). (f) Eurocurrency Interest Periods. In lieu of making any payment pursuant to this Section 5.2 in respect of any Eurocurrency Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period thereof, so long as no Default or -148- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Borrower at its option may deposit with the Administrative Agent an amount equal to the amount of the Eurocurrency Loan to be prepaid and such Eurocurrency Loan shall be repaid on the last day of the Interest Period therefor in the required amount. Such deposit shall be held by the Administrative Agent in a time deposit account established on terms reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, which account may, for the avoidance of doubt, be established at an unaffiliated financial institution. Such deposit shall constitute cash collateral for the Obligations; provided that the Borrower may at any time direct that such deposit be applied to make the applicable payment required pursuant to this Section 5.2. (g) Minimum Amount. (i) No prepayment shall be required pursuant to Section 5.2(a)(i) (except to the extent such prepayment arises due to a Debt Incurrence Prepayment Event) unless and until the amount at any time of Net Cash Proceeds from Prepayment Events required to be offered at or prior to such time pursuant to such Section and not yet offered at or prior to such time to prepay Term Loans pursuant to such Section exceeds (i) $12,500,000 for any single Prepayment Event or series of related Prepayment Events and (ii) $25,000,000 in the aggregate for all such Prepayment Events in any fiscal year, at which time the amount in excess of such amounts, as the case may be, will be offered to be prepaid as provided in Section 5.2(a)(i), with the date of receipt of such Net Cash Proceeds being deemed for such purpose to be the date such thresholds set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) of this clause (g) are met. (ii) No prepayment shall be required pursuant to Section 5.2(a)(ii) unless and until the amount of Excess Cash Flow required to be offered to prepay Term Loans for a fiscal year pursuant to such Section exceeds the greater of (x) $11,000,000 and (y) 10.0% of Consolidated EBITDA of the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries for the Test Period ended on the last day of such fiscal year (measured as of such date) based upon the Internal Financial Statements most recently available on or prior to such date, at which time the amount in excess of the greater of (x) $11,000,000 and (y) 10.0% of Consolidated EBITDA of the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries for the Test Period ended on the last day of such fiscal year (measured as of such date) based upon the Internal Financial Statements most recently available on or prior to such date, will be offered to be prepaid as provided in Section 5.2(a)(ii). (h) Non-Credit Party or Non-Credit Party Asset Sales. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section 5.2(h), (i) to the extent that any of or all the Net Cash Proceeds of any asset sale by a Non-Credit Party giving rise to an Asset Sale Prepayment Event (a “Non-Credit Party Asset Sale”), the Net Cash Proceeds of any Recovery Event from a Non-Credit Party (a “Non-Credit Party Recovery Event”), or Excess Cash Flow, are prohibited, delayed or restricted by applicable local law, rule or regulation (including financial assistance and corporate benefit restrictions and statutory duties of the relevant directors) from being repatriated or expatriated to the United States or from being distributed to a Credit Party, the portion of such Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow so affected will not be required to be applied to repay Term Loans at the times provided in this Section 5.2(h) but may be retained by the applicable Non-Credit Party, so long, but only so long, as the applicable local law, rule or regulation will not permit repatriation to the United States or expatriation or distribution to a Credit Party (the Borrower hereby agreeing to cause the applicable Non-Credit Party to promptly take all commercially reasonable actions available under applicable local law, rule or regulation to permit such repatriation, expatriation or distribution), and once such repatriation, expatriation or distribution of any of such affected Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow is permitted under the applicable local law, rule or regulation, such repatriation, expatriation or distribution will be immediately effected and such repatriated, expatriated or distributed Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow will be promptly (and in any event not later than two Business Days after such repatriation, expatriation or distribution) applied (net of additional taxes payable or reserved against as a result thereof) to the repayment of the Term Loans (and, if applicable, such other Indebtedness as is contemplated by this Section 5.2 pursuant to this Section 5.2(h) and (ii) to the extent that the Borrower has determined in good faith that such repatriation or expatriation of any of or all the Net Cash Proceeds of any Non-Credit Party Asset Sale, any Non-Credit Party Recovery Event or Excess Cash Flow would have a material adverse tax consequence with respect to such Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow (but only for so long as such material adverse tax consequence exists), the Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow so affected may be retained by the applicable Non-Credit Party; provided that, in the case of this clause (ii), on or before the date on which any Net Cash Proceeds from any Non-Credit Party Asset Sale or Non-Credit Party Recovery Event so retained would otherwise have been required to be applied to reinvestments or prepayments pursuant to Section 5.2(a) (or, in the case of Excess Cash Flow, a date -149- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
on or before the date that is six months after the date such Excess Cash Flow would have been so required to be applied to prepayments pursuant to Section 5.2(a)(ii) unless previously repatriated or expatriated in which case such repatriated or expatriated Excess Cash Flow shall have been promptly applied to the repayment of the Term Loans pursuant to Section 5.2(a)), (x) the Borrower applies an amount equal to such Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow to such reinvestments or prepayments as if such Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow had been received by the Borrower rather than such Non-Credit Party, less the amount of additional taxes that would have been payable or reserved against if such Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow had been repatriated or expatriated (or, if less, the Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow that would be calculated if received by such Non-Credit Party) or (y) such Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow are applied to the repayment of Indebtedness of a Non-Credit Party. 5.3 Method and Place of Payment. (a) All payments under this Agreement shall be made by the Borrower, without deduction for any set-off, counterclaim or recoupement of any kind. Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Agreement, all payments by the Borrower under this Agreement shall be made in Dollars (or, in respect of Obligations denominated in an Alternative Currency, in such Alternative Currency) to the Administrative Agent for the ratable account of the applicable Lenders entitled thereto, the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer or the Swingline Lender (except to the extent payments are to be made directly to such Letter of Credit Issuer or the Swingline Lender), as the case may be, not later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the date when due and shall be made in immediately available funds at the Administrative Agent’s Office it being understood that written, electronic or facsimile notice by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent to make a payment from the funds in the Borrower’s account at the Administrative Agent’s Office shall constitute the making of such payment to the extent of such funds held in such account. The Administrative Agent will thereafter cause to be distributed in like funds relating to the payment of principal or interest or Fees ratably to the Lenders entitled thereto or to the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer or the Swingline Lender, as applicable. (b) For purposes of computing interest or fees, any payments under this Agreement that are made later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) may be deemed to have been made on the next succeeding Business Day in the Administrative Agent’s sole discretion (and the Administrative Agent may extend such deadline in its discretion whether or not such payments are in process). Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, whenever any payment to be made hereunder shall be stated to be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the due date thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day and, with respect to payments of principal, interest shall be payable during such extension at the applicable rate in effect immediately prior to such extension. 5.4 Net Payments. (a) Except as required by law, all payments made by or on account of any obligation of a Credit Party under this Agreement or any other Credit Document shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for or on account of, any current or future income, stamp or other taxes, levies, imposts, duties, charges, fees, deductions or withholdings, now or hereafter imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any Governmental Authority (including any interest, additions to tax and penalties applicable thereto) (collectively, “Taxes”). If any Taxes that are not Excluded Taxes (“Non-Excluded Taxes”) are required to be withheld by a Withholding Agent from any amounts payable under this Agreement or any other Credit Document to an Agent or Lender, the applicable Credit Party shall increase the amounts payable to such Agent or Lender to the extent necessary to yield to such Agent or Lender (after withholding of all Non-Excluded Taxes including those applicable to any amounts payable under this Section 5.4) interest or any such other amounts payable hereunder or thereunder at the rates or in the amounts specified hereunder or thereunder. Whenever any withholding Taxes are payable by any Credit Party in respect of amounts payable under any Credit Document to the Administrative Agent or any Lender, promptly thereafter, the applicable Credit Party shall send to the Administrative Agent for its own account or for the account of such Lender, as the case may be, a certified copy of an original official receipt, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent. The agreements in this Section 5.4 shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder. -150- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5


 
(b) In addition, each Credit Party shall pay any present or future stamp, documentary, filing, mortgage, recording, property or similar intangible taxes, charges or levies that arise from any payment made by such Credit Party hereunder or under any other Credit Documents or from the execution, delivery or registration or recordation of, from the receipt or perfection of a security interest or performance under, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement or the other Credit Documents, except any Taxes imposed with respect to an assignment (other than an assignment requested by a Credit Party pursuant to Section 13.7(a)) as a result of a present or former connection between the assignor or assignee and the jurisdiction imposing such Tax (other than a connection arising solely from the assignor or assignee having executed, delivered, become a party to, performed its obligations under, received or perfected a security interest under, engaged in any transaction pursuant to, or enforced this Agreement) (hereinafter referred to as “Other Taxes”). (c) (i) The Credit Parties shall jointly and severally indemnify each Lender and each Agent for and hold them harmless against the full amount of Non-Excluded Taxes and Other Taxes payable or paid by such Lender or Agent (as the case may be) or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Lender or Agent (as the case may be) imposed or asserted (whether or not correctly or legally asserted) by any jurisdiction on any additional amounts or indemnities payable under this Section 5.4 and any liability (including penalties, additions to tax, interest and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto; provided that if any claim pursuant to this Section 5.4(c)(i) is made later than 180 days after the date on which the relevant Lender or Agent had actual knowledge of the relevant Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes, then the Credit Parties shall not be required to indemnify the applicable Lender or Agent for any penalties that accrue in respect of such Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes after the 180th day. This indemnification shall be made within 30 days from the date such Lender or such Agent (as the case may be) makes written demand therefor. (ii) Each Lender shall, and does hereby, severally indemnify, and shall make payment in respect thereof within 10 days after demand therefor, (x) the Administrative Agent against any Non-Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that any Credit Party has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Non-Excluded Taxes and without limiting the obligation of Credit Parties to do so), (y) the Administrative Agent and the Credit Parties, as applicable, against any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 13.6(d)(ii) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register and (z) the Administrative Agent and the Credit Parties, as applicable, against any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent or the Credit Parties in connection with any Credit Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under this Agreement or any other Credit Document against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this clause (ii). (d) Each Lender shall, at such times as are reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, provide the Borrower and the Administrative Agent with any documentation prescribed by any Applicable Law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent (A) as will permit payments to be made pursuant to this Agreement or any other Credit Document to be made without, or at a reduced rate of, withholding or (B) 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. Each such Lender shall, whenever a lapse in time or change in circumstances renders such documentation obsolete, expired or inaccurate in any respect, deliver promptly to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent updated or other appropriate documentation (including any new documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent) or promptly notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Sections 5.4(d)(i) (other than clause (E) thereof), 5.4(e) and 5.4(g) below) 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 foregoing, to the extent permitted by law, each Lender that is not a United States person within the meaning of Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code (a “Non-U.S. Lender”) shall: -151- #95203802v2296160609v3 #96160609v5

Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so. (e) If a payment made to a Lender under this Agreement or any other Credit 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 Withholding Agent, at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Withholding 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 the Withholding Agent as may be necessary for the Withholding Agent to comply with its obligations under FATCA, to determine that such Lender has or has not complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment.

(g) Each Lender that is organized in the United States of America or any state thereof or the District of Columbia shall (A) on or prior to the date such Lender becomes a Lender hereunder, (B) on or prior to the date on which any such form or certification expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, (C) after the occurrence of any event requiring a change in the most recent form or certification previously delivered by it pursuant to this Section 5.4(g) and (D) from time to time if requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, provide the Administrative Agent and the Borrower with two duly completed and signed originals (or copies thereof) of United States Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 (certifying that such Lender is entitled to an exemption from U.S. backup withholding tax) or any successor form. (h) If any Lender or the Administrative Agent determines in its sole discretion, exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes for which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Agreement (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 5.4), then such Lender or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, shall reimburse the indemnifying Credit Party (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made pursuant to this Agreement with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund) for such amount (together with any interest received thereon) as such Lender or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, reasonably determines to be the proportion of the refund as will leave it, after such reimbursement, in no better or worse position than it would have been in if the Taxes subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been imposed and the indemnification payment had not been required; provided that the Credit Party, upon the request of such Lender or the Administrative Agent, agrees to repay the amount paid over to the Credit Party (with interest, penalties and other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event such Lender or the Administrative Agent is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Neither any Lender nor the Administrative Agent shall be obliged to disclose any information regarding its tax affairs or computations to any Credit Party in connection with this paragraph (h) or any other provision of this Section 5.4, and nothing in this Section 5.4 shall obligate any Lender (or Transferee) or the Administrative Agent to apply for any refund.
