(i)            each Revolving Loan Lender severally and not jointly agrees to make Revolving Loans to the Borrower at any time and from time to time after the Effective Date to the Final Maturity Date, or until the earlier reduction of its Revolving Credit Commitment to zero in accordance with the terms hereof, in an aggregate principal amount of Revolving Loans at any time outstanding not to exceed the amount of such Lender's Revolving Credit Commitment; and
(ii)            one or more Existing Lenders previously made the Existing Term Loan to the Borrower pursuant to the Existing Financing Agreement in an aggregate principal amount equal to $105,000,000, the aggregate outstanding principal balance of which is $95,000,000 as of the Restatement Effective Date (after giving effect to the Ninth Amendment Effective Date Prepayment).  The Existing Loans (together with all accrued and unpaid interest, fees, indemnities, costs and other payment obligations that are outstanding immediately prior to the date hereof) are owing as of the Restatement Effective Date without set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, deduction or other defense to the Agents and the Lenders. On the Restatement Effective Date $95,000,000 of the Existing Term Loan shall be amended, restated, converted and continued and be outstanding as the Term Loan (the "Term Loan").
(b)            Notwithstanding the foregoing:
(i)            The aggregate principal amount of Revolving Loans outstanding at any time to the Borrower shall not exceed the lower of (A) the difference between (1) the Total Revolving Credit Commitment and (2) the aggregate Letter of Credit Obligations and (B) the difference between (1) the then current Borrowing Base and (2) the aggregate Letter of Credit Obligations.  The Revolving Credit Commitment of each Lender shall automatically and permanently be reduced to zero on the Final Maturity Date.  Within the foregoing limits, the Borrower may borrow, repay and reborrow the Revolving Loans on or after the Effective Date and prior to the Final Maturity Date, subject to the terms, provisions and limitations set forth herein.

Section 2.02            Making the Loansii)  The Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent prior telephonic notice (immediately confirmed in writing, in substantially the form of Exhibit B hereto (a "Notice of Borrowing")), not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York time) on the date which is 3 Business Days prior to the date of the proposed Loan (in the case of a Eurodollar Rate Loan), or not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York time) on the date that is 1 Business Day prior to the date of the proposed Loan (in the case of a Reference Rate Loan) (or such shorter period as the Administrative Agent is willing, in its sole discretion, to accommodate from time to time).  The Notice of Borrowing shall be irrevocable and shall specify (i) the principal amount and type (either a Revolving Loan or a Term Loan) of the proposed Loan, (ii) the proposed borrowing date, which must be a Business Day, (iii) whether the proposed Loan is to be a Reference Rate Loan or a Eurodollar Rate Loan, and (iv) in the case of a Eurodollar Rate Loan, the initial Interest Period applicable thereto, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term "Interest Period."  If no Interest Period is specified with respect to any requested Eurodollar Rate Loan, then the Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month's duration.  If no election as to the type of Loan is specified, then the requested Loan shall be a Reference Rate Loan.  The Administrative Agent and the Lenders may act without liability upon the basis of written, telecopied or telephonic notice believed by the Administrative Agent in good faith to be from the Borrower (or from any Authorized Officer thereof designated in writing purportedly from the Borrower to the Administrative Agent).  The Borrower hereby waives the right to dispute the Administrative Agent's record of the terms of any such telephonic Notice of Borrowing.  The Administrative Agent and each Lender shall be entitled to rely conclusively on any Authorized Officer's authority to request a Loan on behalf of the Borrower until the Administrative Agent receives written notice to the contrary.  The Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall have no duty to verify the authenticity of the signature appearing on any written Notice of Borrowing.
45

(b)            Each Notice of Borrowing pursuant to this Section 2.02 shall be irrevocable and the Borrower shall be bound to make a borrowing in accordance therewith.  Each Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be made in a minimum amount of $100,000 and shall be in integral multiples of $50,000 in excess thereof.  The Borrower shall have not more than 4 Eurodollar Rate Loans in effect at any given time.
(c)            (1)            Except as otherwise provided in this Section 2.02(c), all Loans under this Agreement shall be made by the Lenders simultaneously and proportionately to their Pro Rata Shares of the Total Revolving Credit Commitment or the Total Term Loan Commitment, as the case may be, it being understood that no Lender shall be responsible for any default by any other Lender in that other Lender's obligations to make a Loan requested hereunder, nor shall the Commitment of any Lender be increased or decreased as a result of the default by any other Lender in that other Lender's obligation to make a Loan requested hereunder, and each Lender shall be obligated to make the Loans required to be made by it by the terms of this Agreement regardless of the failure by any other Lender.
(ii)            Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, and in order to reduce the number of fund transfers among the Borrower, the Agents and the Lenders, the Borrower, the Agents and the Lenders agree that the Administrative Agent may (but shall not be obligated to), and the Borrower and the Lenders hereby irrevocably authorize the Administrative Agent to, fund, on behalf of the Revolving Loan Lenders, Revolving Loans pursuant to Section 2.01, subject to the procedures for settlement set forth in Section 2.02(d); provided, however, that (a) the Administrative Agent shall in no event fund any such Revolving Loans if the Administrative Agent shall have received written notice from the Collateral Agent or the Required Lenders on the Business Day prior to the date of the proposed Revolving Loan that one or more of the conditions precedent contained in Section 5.02 will not be satisfied at the time of the proposed Revolving Loan, and (b) the Administrative Agent shall not otherwise be required to determine that, or take notice whether, the conditions precedent in Section 5.02 have been satisfied.  If the Borrower gives a Notice of Borrowing requesting a Revolving Loan and the Administrative Agent elects not to fund such Revolving Loan on behalf of the Revolving Loan Lenders, then promptly after receipt of the Notice of Borrowing requesting such Revolving Loan, the Administrative Agent shall notify each Revolving Loan Lender of the specifics of the requested Revolving Loan and that it will not fund the requested Revolving Loan on behalf of the Revolving Loan Lenders.  If the Administrative Agent notifies the Revolving Loan Lenders that it will not fund a requested Revolving Loan on behalf of the Revolving Loan Lenders, each Revolving Loan Lender shall make its Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Loan available to the Administrative Agent, in immediately available funds, in the Administrative Agent's Account no later than 3:00 p.m. (New York time) (provided that the Administrative Agent requests payment from such Revolving Loan Lender not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York time)) on the date of the proposed Revolving Loan.  The Administrative Agent will make the proceeds of such Revolving Loans available to the Borrower on the day of the proposed Revolving Loan by causing an amount, in immediately available funds, equal to the proceeds of all such Revolving Loans received by the Administrative Agent in the Administrative Agent's Account or the amount funded by the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Revolving Loan Lenders to be deposited in an account designated by the Borrower.
46

(iii)            If the Administrative Agent has notified the Revolving Loan Lenders that the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Revolving Loan Lenders, will not fund a particular Revolving Loan pursuant to Section 2.02(c)(ii), the Administrative Agent may assume that each such Revolving Loan Lender has made such amount available to the Administrative Agent on such day and the Administrative Agent, in its sole discretion, may, but shall not be obligated to, cause a corresponding amount to be made available to the Borrower on such day.  If the Administrative Agent makes such corresponding amount available to the Borrower and such corresponding amount is not in fact made available to the Administrative Agent by any such Revolving Loan Lender, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover such corresponding amount on demand from such Revolving Loan Lender together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such payment was due until the date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent, at the Federal Funds Effective Rate for 3 Business Days and thereafter at the Reference Rate.  During the period in which such Revolving Loan Lender has not paid such corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement or any other Loan Document, the amount so advanced by the Administrative Agent to the Borrower shall, for all purposes hereof, be a Revolving Loan made by the Administrative Agent for its own account.  Upon any such failure by a Revolving Loan Lender to pay the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent shall promptly thereafter notify the Borrower of such failure and the Borrower shall immediately pay such corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent for its own account.
(iv)            Nothing in this Section 2.02(c) shall be deemed to relieve any Revolving Loan Lender from its obligations to fulfill its Revolving Credit Commitment hereunder or to prejudice any rights that the Administrative Agent or the Borrower may have against any Revolving Loan Lender as a result of any default by such Revolving Loan Lender hereunder.
47

(d)            (2)            With respect to all periods for which the Administrative Agent has funded Revolving Loans pursuant to Section 2.02(c), on Friday of each week, or if the applicable Friday is not a Business Day, then on the following Business Day, or such shorter period as the Administrative Agent may from time to time select (any such week or shorter period being herein called a "Settlement Period"), the Administrative Agent shall notify each Revolving Loan Lender of the unpaid principal amount of the Revolving Loans outstanding as of the last day of each such Settlement Period.  In the event that such amount is greater than the unpaid principal amount of the Revolving Loans outstanding on the last day of the Settlement Period immediately preceding such Settlement Period (or, if there has been no preceding Settlement Period, the amount of the Revolving Loans made on the date of such Revolving Loan Lender's initial funding), each Revolving Loan Lender shall promptly (and in any event not later than 2:00 p.m. (New York time) if the Administrative Agent requests payment from such Lender not later than 12:00 noon (New York time) on such day) make available to the Administrative Agent its Pro Rata Share of the difference in immediately available funds.  In the event that such amount is less than such unpaid principal amount, the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay over to each Revolving Loan Lender its Pro Rata Share of the difference in immediately available funds.  In addition, if the Administrative Agent shall so request at any time when a Default or an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, or any other event shall have occurred as a result of which the Administrative Agent shall determine that it is desirable to present claims against the Borrower for repayment, each Revolving Loan Lender shall promptly remit to the Administrative Agent or, as the case may be, the Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to each Revolving Loan Lender, sufficient funds to adjust the interests of the Revolving Loan Lenders in the then outstanding Revolving Loans to such an extent that, after giving effect to such adjustment, each such Revolving Loan Lender's interest in the then outstanding Revolving Loans will be equal to its Pro Rata Share thereof.  The obligations of the Administrative Agent and each Revolving Loan Lender under this Section 2.02(d) shall be absolute and unconditional.  Each Revolving Loan Lender shall only be entitled to receive interest on its Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Loans which have been funded by such Revolving Loan Lender.
(ii)            In the event that any Revolving Loan Lender fails to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.02(d)(i), the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover such corresponding amount on demand from such Revolving Loan Lender together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such payment was due until the date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent, at the Federal Funds Effective Rate for 3 Business Days and thereafter at the Reference Rate.  During the period in which such Revolving Loan Lender has not paid such corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement or any other Loan Document, the amount so advanced by the Administrative Agent to the Borrower shall, for all purposes hereof, be a Revolving Loan made by the Administrative Agent for its own account.  Upon any such failure by a Revolving Loan Lender to pay the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent shall promptly thereafter notify the Borrower of such failure and the Borrower shall immediately pay such corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent for its own account.  Nothing in this Section 2.02(d)(ii) shall be deemed to relieve any Revolving Loan Lender from its obligation to fulfill its Revolving Credit Commitment hereunder or to prejudice any rights that the Administrative Agent or the Borrower may have against any Revolving Loan Lender as a result of any default by such Revolving Loan Lender hereunder.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, prepayments required under Section 2.05(c) shall continue to be applied in the manner set forth in this Section 2.05(d), unless either Agent has elected to, or has been directed by the Required Lenders to, apply payments in respect of any Obligations and all Proceeds of the Collateral in accordance with Section 4.03(b), in which case prepayments required under Section 2.05(c) shall be applied in the manner set forth in Section 4.03(b).  Each such prepayment of the Term Loan shall be applied against the remaining installments of principal of the Term Loan in the inverse order of maturity.

Section 2.06                          Fees.
(a)            Unused Line Fee.  From and after the Effective Date and until the Final Maturity Date, the Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Revolving Loan Lenders, in accordance with their Pro Rata Shares, an unused line fee (the "Unused Line Fee"), which shall accrue at the rate per annum of 0.50% on the excess, if any, of the Total Revolving Credit Commitment over the sum of the average principal amount of all Revolving Loans and Letter of Credit Obligations outstanding during the prior one quarter period and shall be payable quarterly in arrears on the first day of each quarter commencing April 1, 2012.
(b)       Letter of Credit Fees.  The Borrower shall pay (i) to the Administrative Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Revolving Loan Lenders, a Letter of Credit fee (in addition to the charges, commissions, fees, and costs set forth in clause (ii) below) which shall accrue at a rate per annum equal to the L/C Fee Rate in effect at such time, times the daily balance of the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit, for the period from and excluding the date of issuance of same to and including the date of expiration or termination, such fees to be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual number of days elapsed and to be payable monthly in arrears on the first day of each month and on the Final Maturity Date, and (ii) to the L/C Issuer, a fronting fee of one quarter of one percent (0.25%) per annum, together with any and all customary administrative, issuance, amendment, payment and negotiation charges (as per the L/C Issuer's standard fee schedule) with respect to any Letters of Credit and all fees and expenses as agreed upon by the L/C Issuer and the Borrower in connection with any Letter of Credit, including in connection with the opening, amendment or renewal of any such Letter of Credit and any acceptances created thereunder and shall reimburse Administrative Agent for any and all fees and expenses, if any, paid by the Administrative Agent to the L/C Issuer (all of the foregoing fees, the "Letter of Credit Fees").  All such charges shall be deemed earned in full on the date when the same are due and payable hereunder and shall not be subject to rebate or pro-ration upon the termination of this Agreement for any reason.  Any such charge in effect at the time of a particular transaction shall be the charge for that transaction, notwithstanding any subsequent change in the L/C Issuer's prevailing charges for that type of transaction.  All Letter of Credit Fees payable hereunder shall be deemed earned in full on the date when the same are due and payable hereunder and shall not be subject to rebate or proration upon the termination of this Agreement for any reason.

56

(e)            Fee Letter.  As and when due and payable under the terms of the Fee Letter, the Borrower shall pay the fees set forth in the Fee Letter.
Section 2.07                          Eurodollar Option.
(a)            In lieu of having interest charged at the rate based upon the Reference Rate, the Borrower shall have the option (the "Eurodollar Option") to have interest on all or a portion of the Loans be charged at a rate of interest based upon the Eurodollar Rate.  Each Interest Period of a Eurodollar Rate Loan shall commence on the date such Eurodollar Rate Loan is made and shall end on such date as the Borrower may elect as set forth in subsection 2.02(a) above; provided that no Interest Period shall end after the Final Maturity Date.
(b)            The Borrower shall elect the initial Interest Period applicable to a Eurodollar Rate Loan by its Notice of Borrowing given to the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 2.02(a) or by its notice of conversion given to the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 2.07(c), as the case may be.  The Borrower shall elect the duration of each succeeding Interest Period by giving irrevocable written notice to the Administrative Agent of such duration not later than 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on the day which is three (3) Business Days prior to the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable to such Eurodollar Rate Loan.  If the Administrative Agent does not receive timely notice of the Interest Period elected by the Borrower shall be deemed to have elected to convert such Eurodollar Rate Loan to a Reference Rate Loan, subject to Section 2.07(c) herein below.
57

(c)            The Borrower may, on the last Business Day of the then current Interest Period applicable to any outstanding Eurodollar Rate Loan, or on any Business Day with respect to Reference Rate Loans, convert any such loan into a loan of another type (i.e., a Reference Rate Loan or a Eurodollar Rate Loan) in the same aggregate principal amount, provided that any conversion of a Eurodollar Rate Loan not made on the last Business Day of the then current Interest Period applicable to such Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be subject to Section 2.07(e).  If the Borrower desires to convert a Loan, the Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent a Eurodollar Notice by no later than 11:00 a.m. (New York time) (i) on the day which is three (3) Business Days' prior to the date on which such conversion is to occur with respect to a conversion from a Reference Rate Loan to a Eurodollar Rate Loan, or (ii) on the day which is one (1) Business Day prior to the date on which such conversion is to occur with respect to a conversion from a Eurodollar Rate Loan to a Reference Rate Loan, specifying, in each case, the date of such conversion, the Loans to be converted and if the conversion is from a Reference Rate Loan to a Eurodollar Rate Loan, the duration of the first Interest Period therefor.
(d)            Subject to Section 2.05(b), the Borrower may prepay the Eurodollar Rate Loans in whole at any time or in part from time to time with accrued interest on the principal being prepaid to the date of such repayment.  The Borrower shall specify the date of prepayment of Loans which are Eurodollar Rate Loans, the Loan to which such prepayment is to be applied and the amount of such prepayment.  In the event that any prepayment of a Eurodollar Rate Loan is required or permitted on a date other than the last Business Day of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto, the Borrower shall indemnify the Administrative Agent and Lenders therefor in accordance with Section 2.07(e) hereof.
(e)            The Borrower shall indemnify the Agents and Lenders and hold the Agents and Lenders harmless from and against any and all losses, costs or expenses, excluding the loss of any margin above the Eurodollar Rates (such losses, costs and expenses, collectively, "Funding Losses") that the Agents and Lenders may sustain or incur as a consequence of any mandatory or voluntary prepayment, conversion of or any default by the Borrower in the payment of the principal of or interest on any Eurodollar Rate Loan or failure by the Borrower to complete a borrowing of, a prepayment of or conversion of or to a Eurodollar Rate Loan after notice thereof has been given, including, but not limited to, any interest, excluding the loss of any margin above the Eurodollar Rates, payable by the Agents or Lenders to lenders of funds obtained by it in order to make or maintain its Eurodollar Rate Loans hereunder (it being agreed that the Agents and Lenders shall be entitled to such indemnification on such basis whether or not they have obtained such funds to make or maintain its Eurodollar Rate Loans hereunder, to be calculated  in accordance with customary banking practices).  A certificate as to any additional amounts payable pursuant to the foregoing sentence submitted by any Agent or any Lender to the Borrower shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(f)            Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, if any Requirement of Law, or any Change in Law, shall make it unlawful for any Lender (for purposes of this subsection (f), the term "Lender" shall include any Lender and the office or branch where any Lender or any corporation or bank controlling such Lender makes or maintains any Eurodollar Rate Loans) to make or maintain its Eurodollar Rate Loans, the obligation of Lenders to make Eurodollar Rate Loans hereunder shall forthwith be cancelled and the Borrower shall, if any affected Eurodollar Rate Loans are then outstanding, promptly upon request from the Administrative Agent, either pay all such affected Eurodollar Rate Loans or convert such affected Eurodollar Rate Loans into loans of another type (the date specified in the Administrative Agent's request shall, unless otherwise required by law, be the last day of the Interest Period of such Eurodollar Rate Loans).  If any such payment or conversion of any Eurodollar Rate Loan is made on a day that is not the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Eurodollar Rate Loan, the Borrower shall pay the Administrative Agent, upon the Administrative Agent's request, such amount or amounts as may be necessary to compensate Lenders for any Funding Losses sustained or incurred by Lenders in respect of such Eurodollar Rate Loan as a result of such payment or conversion, including (but not limited to) any interest or other amounts payable by Lenders to lenders of funds obtained by Lenders in order to make or maintain such Eurodollar Rate Loan.  A certificate as to any additional amounts that describes in reasonable detail the calculations thereof payable pursuant to the foregoing sentence submitted by Lenders to Borrower shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
58

(g)                 In the event that:
(i)            the Administrative Agent shall have determined that reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Eurodollar Rate applicable pursuant to Section 2.02(a) hereof for any Interest Period; or
(ii)            the Required Lenders shall have determined that dollar deposits in the relevant amount and for the relevant maturity are not available in the London interbank Eurodollar market, with respect to an outstanding Eurodollar Rate Loan, a proposed Eurodollar Rate Loan, or a proposed conversion of a Reference Rate Loan into a Eurodollar Rate Loan,
then the Administrative Agent shall give the Lenders and the Borrower prompt written, telephonic or facsimile notice of such determination.  If such notice is given, (i) any such requested Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be made as a Reference Rate Loan, unless the Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent no later than 1:00 p.m. (New York time) two (2) Business Days prior to the date of such proposed borrowing, that its request for such borrowing shall be cancelled or made as an unaffected type of Eurodollar Rate Loan, (ii) any Reference Rate Loan or Eurodollar Rate Loan which was to have been converted to an affected type of Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be continued as or converted into a Reference Rate Loan, or, if the Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent, no later than 11:00 a.m. (New York time) two (2) Business Days prior to the proposed conversion, shall be maintained as an unaffected type of Eurodollar Rate Loan, and (iii) any outstanding affected Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be converted into a Reference Rate Loan at the end of the applicable Interest Period.  Until such notice has been withdrawn, Lenders shall have no obligation to make an affected type of Eurodollar Rate Loan or maintain outstanding affected Eurodollar Rate Loans and the Borrower shall not have the right to convert a Reference Rate Loan or an unaffected type of Eurodollar Rate Loan into an affected type of Eurodollar Rate Loan.
(h)            Anything to the contrary contained herein notwithstanding, neither any Agent nor any Lender, nor any of their participants, is required actually to acquire Eurodollar deposits to fund or otherwise match fund any Obligation as to which interest accrues at the Eurodollar Rate.  Except for Section 2.07(g)(ii), the provisions of this Article II shall apply as if each Lender or its participants had match funded any Obligation as to which interest is accruing at the Eurodollar Rate by acquiring Eurodollar deposits for each Interest Period in the amount of the Eurodollar Rate Loans.
59

(i)            If any Lender requests compensation or notifies the Borrower of any illegality to make a Eurodollar Rate Loan pursuant to Section 2.07(f) or if the Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or if the Borrower is required to pay any additional interest or other amount to any Lender hereunder, then such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the sole judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable hereunder in the future or eliminate the illegality to make Eurodollar Rate Loans, as the case may be, (ii) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense, and (iii) would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender.
Section 2.08                          [Intentionally Omitted].
Section 2.09                          Taxesiv) Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of any Loan Party hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any and all present or future taxes, levies, imposts, duties, assessments, fees, deductions, charges or withholdings, and all interest, penalties, additions to tax and other liabilities with respect thereto (all such amounts, "Taxes"), except as required by applicable law.  If any Loan Party shall be required to deduct or withhold any Taxes from any such payment (i) if such tax is an Indemnified Tax, the sum payable shall be increased by the amount (an "Additional Amount") necessary so that after making all required deductions and withholdings (including deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.09) such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer (or such Transferee) shall receive an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) such Loan Party shall make such deductions and (iii) such Loan Party shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
(b)            In addition, each Loan Party agrees to pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law any present or future stamp, court or documentary, intangible recording or filing taxes or any other charges or similar levies that arise from any payment made hereunder or from the execution, delivery, performance, enforcement or registration of, from the receipt or perfection of a security interest under, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement or any other Loan Document ("Other Taxes").  Each Loan Party shall deliver to each Agent, each Lender and the L/C Issuer the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing such payment in respect of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes payable hereunder as soon as reasonably practicable after payment of such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes.
(c)            Without duplication of Sections 2.09(a) and 2.09(b), the Loan Parties hereby jointly and severally indemnify and agree to hold each Agent, each Lender and the L/C Issuer harmless from and against Indemnified Taxes and Other Taxes (including, without limitation, Indemnified Taxes and Other Taxes imposed on any amounts payable under this Section 2.09) payable or paid by such Person or required to be deducted or withheld from a payment to such Person, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority.  Such indemnification shall be paid within 30 days from the date on which any such Person makes written demand therefor specifying in reasonable detail the nature and amount of such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes and shall include reimbursement for any documented out-of-pocket expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto.  A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered by any Agent, any Lender or the L/C Issuer shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(d)                (i)  Any Lender (which, for purposes of this Section 2.09(d), shall include the Administrative Agent) that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding.  In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing two sentences, the completion of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 2,09(d)(ii), (iii) or (iv) below) shall not be required if in the Lender's good faith judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense or would prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.
(ii)                 Without limiting the generality of the foregoing,
(A)            any Lender that is a United States person (as such term is defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the Internal Revenue Code) agrees that it shall, no later than the Effective Date (or, in the case of a Lender which becomes a party hereto pursuant to Section 12.07 hereof after the Effective Date, promptly after the date upon which such Lender becomes a party hereto) and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, executed originals of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding tax;
(B)            any Lender that is not a United States person (as such term is defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the Internal Revenue Code) (a "Non-U.S. Lender") agrees that it shall, no later than the Effective Date (or, in the case of a Lender which becomes a party hereto pursuant to Section 12.07 hereof after the Effective Date, promptly after the date upon which such Lender becomes a party hereto) deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (or, in the case of an assignee of a Lender which (x) is an Affiliate of such Lender or a Related Fund of such Lender and (y) does not deliver an Assignment and Acceptance to the Administrative Agent pursuant to the last sentence of Section 12.07(b) for recordation pursuant to Section 12.07(c), to the assigning Lender only, and in the case of a participant, to the Lender granting the participation only) properly completed and duly executed copies of U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, W-8ECI or W-8IMY (together with applicable attachments), as applicable, or any subsequent versions thereof or successors thereto, in each case claiming complete exemption from, or reduced rate of, U.S. Federal withholding tax on payments of interest and fees hereunder, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable law to permit the Borrower or the Agents to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made, if any.  In addition, in the case of a Non-U.S. Lender claiming exemption from U.S. Federal withholding tax under Section 871(h) or 881(c) of the Internal Revenue Code, such Non-U.S. Lender shall, no later than the Effective Date (or, in the case of a Lender which becomes a party hereto pursuant to Section 12.07 hereof after the Effective Date, promptly after the date upon which such Lender becomes a party hereto), provide a certificate to the Agents and the Borrower to the effect that such Non-U.S. Lender is not a "bank" within the meaning of Section 881(c) of the Internal Revenue Code, is not a "10-percent shareholder" (within the meaning of Section 871(h)(3)(B) of the Internal Revenue Code) of the Borrower and is not a CFC related to the Borrower (within the meaning of Section 864(d)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code), and such Non-U.S. Lender agrees that it shall promptly notify the Agents in the event any such representation is no longer accurate.  Such forms shall be delivered by each Non-U.S. Lender at the times specified in the preceding sentences and on or before the date, if any, such Non-U.S. Lender changes its applicable lending office by designating a different lending office (a "New Lending Office").  In addition, such Non-U.S. Lender shall deliver such forms within 20 days after receipt of a written request therefor from the Borrower, any Agent, the assigning Lender or the Lender granting a participation, as applicable.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 2.09, a Non-U.S. Lender shall not be required to deliver any form pursuant to this Section 2.09(d) that such Non-U.S. Lender is not legally able to deliver.
61

(iii)            If a payment made to a Lender under this Agreement or any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Borrower and the Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Agent as may be necessary for the Borrower and the Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender's obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment.  Solely for purposes of this clause (D), "FATCA" shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.
(iv)            Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered pursuant to this Section 2.09(d) expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Borrower and the Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.
(e)            The Loan Parties shall not be required to indemnify any Lender,  Agent or L/C Issuer (each a "Recipient") or pay any Additional Amounts to any Recipient in respect of any obligation of the Borrower or any other Loan Party hereunder or under any Loan Document to the extent that (i) such amount is attributable to Taxes imposed on or measured by net income (however denominated), franchise Taxes, and branch profits Taxes, in each case (a) imposed as a result of such Recipient being organized under the laws of, or having its principal office or, in the case of any Lender, its applicable lending office located in, the jurisdiction imposing such Tax (or any political subdivision thereof) or (b) such amount is attributable to Taxes imposed as a result of a present or former connection between such Recipient and the jurisdiction imposing such Tax (other than connections arising from such Recipient having executed, delivered, become a party to, performed its obligations under, received payments under, received or perfected a security interest under, engaged in any other transaction pursuant to or enforced any Loan Document, or sold or assigned an interest in any Loan or Loan Document) ("Other Connection Income Taxes"); (ii) the obligation to withhold amounts with respect to United States Federal withholding tax existed on the date such Recipient became a party to this Agreement (or, in the case of a participation holder, on the date such participation holder became a participant hereunder) or, with respect to payments to a New Lending Office, the date such Lender designated such New Lending Office with respect to a Loan; provided, however, that this clause (ii) shall not apply to the extent the indemnity payment or Additional Amounts any transferee, assignee or participation holder, or Lender (or transferee, assignee or participation holder) through a New Lending Office, would be entitled to receive (without regard to this clause (ii)) do not exceed the indemnity payment or Additional Amounts that the Person making the assignment, participation or transfer to such transferee, assignee or participation holder, or Lender (or transferee, assignee or participation holder) making the designation of such New Lending Office, would have been entitled to receive in the absence of such assignment, participation, transfer or designation, (iii) the obligation to pay such Additional Amounts would not have arisen but for a failure by such Non-U.S. Lender to comply with the provisions of clause (d) above; or (iv) any U.S. Federal withholding Taxes imposed under FATCA (all such amounts under this Section 2.09(e), "Excluded Taxes").
62

(f)            Any Agent, any Lender or the L/C Issuer (or Transferee) claiming any indemnity payment or Additional Amounts payable pursuant to this Section 2.09 shall use reasonable efforts (consistent with legal and regulatory restrictions) to file any certificate or document reasonably requested in writing by the Borrower or to change the jurisdiction of its applicable lending office if the making of such a filing or change would avoid the need for or reduce the amount of any such indemnity payment or Additional Amount that may thereafter accrue, would not require such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer (or Transferee) to disclose any information such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer (or Transferee) deems confidential and would not, in the reasonable determination of such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer (or Transferee), be otherwise disadvantageous to such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer (or Transferee).
(g)            If any party determines, in its sole discretion, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 2.09 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.09), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 2.09 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund).  Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (g) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (g), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (g) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the indemnification payments or additional amounts giving rise to such refund had never been paid.  This paragraph shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.
63

(h)            Each party's obligations under this Section 2.09 shall survive the termination of this Agreement, the resignation or replacement of the Administrative Agent or any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, and the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder.
Section 2.10                          Increased Costs and Reduced Return.  v)  If any Lender, any Agent or the L/C Issuer shall have determined that any Change in Law shall (i) subject such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer, or any Person controlling such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer to any Tax, duty or other charge with respect to this Agreement or any Loan made by such Agent or such Lender or any Letter of Credit issued by the L/C Issuer (except for Taxes described in clauses (ii) through (iv) of the definition of Excluded Taxes, Indemnified Taxes or Other Connection Income Taxes payable by such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer or any Person controlling such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer), (ii) impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit or similar requirement (without duplication of any Eurodollar Rate Reserve Percentage adjustments made pursuant to the definition of "Eurodollar Rate") against any Loan, any Letter of Credit or against assets of or held by, or deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer or any Person controlling such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer or (iii) impose on such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer or any Person controlling such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer any other condition regarding this Agreement or any Loan or Letter of Credit, and the result of any event referred to in clauses (i), (ii) or (iii) above shall be to increase the cost to such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer of making any Loan, issuing, guaranteeing or participating in any Letter of Credit, or agreeing to make any Loan or issue, guaranty or participate in any Letter of Credit, or to reduce any amount received or receivable by such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer hereunder, then, upon demand by such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer, the Borrower shall pay to such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer such additional amounts as will compensate such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer for such increased costs or reductions in amount.
(b)            If any Agent, any Lender or the L/C Issuer shall have determined that any Change in Law either (i) affects or would affect the amount of capital required or expected to be maintained by such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer or any Person controlling such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer, and such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer determines that the amount of such capital is increased as a direct or indirect consequence of any Loans made or maintained, Letters of Credit issued or any guaranty or participation with respect thereto, such Agent's, such Lender's or the L/C Issuer's or such other controlling Person's other obligations hereunder, or (ii) has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Agent's, such Lender's or the L/C Issuer's such other controlling Person's capital to a level below that which such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer or such controlling Person could have achieved but for such circumstances as a consequence of any Loans made or maintained, Letters of Credit issued, or any guaranty or participation with respect thereto or any agreement to make Loans, to issue Letters of Credit or such Agent's, such Lender's or the L/C Issuer's or such other controlling Person's other obligations hereunder (in each case, taking into consideration, such Agent's, such Lender's or the L/C Issuer's or such other controlling Person's policies with respect to capital adequacy), then, upon demand by such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer, the Borrower shall pay to such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer from time to time such additional amounts as will compensate such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer for such cost of maintaining such increased capital or such reduction in the rate of return on such Agent's, such Lender's or the L/C Issuer's or such other controlling Person's capital.
64

(c)            All amounts payable under this Section 2.10 shall bear interest from the date that is ten (10) days after the date of demand by any Agent, any Lender or the L/C Issuer until payment in full to such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer at the Reference Rate.  A certificate of such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer claiming compensation under this Section 2.10, specifying the event herein above described and the nature of such event shall be submitted by such Agent, such Lender or the L/C Issuer to the Borrower, setting forth the additional amount due and an explanation of the calculation thereof, and such Agent's, such Lender's or the L/C Issuer's reasons for invoking the provisions of this Section 2.10, and shall be final and conclusive absent manifest error.
(d)            Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.10 shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender's right to demand such compensation.
(e)            Each party's obligations under this Section 2.10 shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder.
ARTICLE III

LETTERS OF CREDIT
Section 3.01                          Letters of Credit.  Subject to the terms and conditions hereof (including Section 2.01(b) hereof), the Administrative Agent shall issue or cause the issuance of standby and/or trade letters of credit (collectively, "Letters of Credit") for the account of the Borrower.  The Maximum Undrawn Amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit shall not exceed in the aggregate at any time the lowest of (i) (A) the Total Revolving Credit Commitment minus (B) the aggregate principal amount of all Revolving Loans then outstanding, (ii) (A) the Borrowing Base minus (B) the aggregate principal amount of all Revolving Loans then outstanding, or (iii) the Letter of Credit Sublimit.  All disbursements or payments related to Letters of Credit shall be deemed to be Revolving Loans and shall bear interest at the rate applicable to Revolving Loans in accordance with Section 2.04.  Letters of Credit that have not been drawn upon shall not bear interest.
65

Section 3.02                          Issuance of Letters of Credit.
(a)        Subject to the terms hereof, the Borrower may request the Administrative Agent to issue or cause the issuance of a Letter of Credit by delivering to the Administrative Agent, at the Payment Office, prior to 10:00 a.m. (New York time), at least five (5)  Business Days' prior to the proposed date of issuance, the Administrative Agent's form of letter of credit application (the "Letter of Credit Application") completed to the reasonable satisfaction of the Administrative Agent; and, such other certificates, documents and other papers and information as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request.  The Borrower also has the right to give instructions and make agreements with respect to any application, any applicable letter of credit and security agreement, any applicable letter of credit reimbursement agreement and/or any other applicable agreement, any letter of credit and the disposition of documents, disposition of any unutilized funds, and to agree with the Administrative Agent upon any amendment, extension or renewal of any Letter of Credit.
(b)        Each Letter of Credit shall, among other things, (i) provide for the payment of sight drafts, other written demands for payment, or acceptances of drafts when presented for honor thereunder in accordance with the terms thereof and when accompanied by the documents described therein and (ii) have an expiry date not later than twelve (12) months after such Letter of Credit's date of issuance (subject to automatic renewals) and in no event later than the date that is 15 days prior to the Final Maturity Date.  Each standby Letter of Credit shall be subject either to the Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits (1993 Revision), International Chamber of Commerce Publication No. 600, and any amendments or revision thereof adhered to by the Issuer ("UCP 600") or the International Standby Practices (ISP98-International Chamber of Commerce Publication Number 590) ("ISP98 Rules"), as determined by the Administrative Agent, and each trade Letter of Credit shall be subject to UCP 600.
(c)        The Administrative Agent shall use its reasonable efforts to notify the Lenders of the request by the Borrower for a Letter of Credit hereunder.
Section 3.03                          Requirements For Issuance of Letters of Credit.  The Borrower shall authorize and direct the L/C Issuer to name the Borrower as the "Applicant" or "Account Party" of each Letter of Credit.  If the Administrative Agent is not the L/C Issuer of any Letter of Credit, the Borrower shall authorize and direct the L/C Issuer to deliver to the Administrative Agent all instruments, documents, and other writings and property received by the L/C Issuer pursuant to the Letter of Credit and to accept and rely upon the Administrative Agent's instructions and agreements with respect to all matters arising in connection with the Letter of Credit or the application therefor and the Administrative Agent shall cause the L/C Issuer to acknowledge receipt of such instructions.
Section 3.04                          Disbursements, Reimbursement.
(a)            Immediately upon the issuance of each Letter of Credit, each Revolving Loan Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from the Administrative Agent a participation in such Letter of Credit and each drawing thereunder in an amount equal to such Lender's Pro Rata Share (determined in accordance with paragraph (a) of the definition of "Pro Rata Share") of the Maximum Face Amount of such Letter of Credit and the amount of such drawing, respectively.
66

(b)        In the event of any request for a drawing under a Letter of Credit by the beneficiary or transferee thereof, the Administrative Agent will promptly notify the Borrower.  Provided that the Borrower shall have received such notice by 12:00 Noon (New York time), the Borrower shall reimburse (such obligation to reimburse the Administrative Agent or any Lender together with any interest thereon pursuant to Section 2.04 shall sometimes be referred to as a "Reimbursement Obligation") the Administrative Agent and the Revolving Loan Lenders prior to 1:00 p.m. (New York time) on such date that an amount is paid by the Administrative Agent and the Revolving Loan Lenders under any Letter of Credit (each such date, a "Drawing Date") in an amount equal to the amount so paid by the Administrative Agent.  In the event the Borrower fails to reimburse the Administrative Agent for the full amount of any drawing under any Letter of Credit by 1:00 p.m. (New York time), on the Drawing Date, the Administrative Agent will promptly notify each Revolving Loan Lender thereof, and the Borrower shall be deemed to have requested that a Revolving Loan that is a Reference Rate Loan be made by the Revolving Loan Lenders to be disbursed on the Drawing Date under such Letter of Credit, pursuant to Section 2.01(a)(i) and subject to Sections 5.01 and 5.02 hereof.  Any notice given by the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 3.04(b) may be oral if immediately confirmed in writing; provided that the lack of such an immediate confirmation shall not affect the conclusiveness or binding effect of such notice.
(c)        Each Revolving Loan Lender shall upon any notice pursuant to Section 3.04(b) make available to the Administrative Agent an amount in immediately available funds equal to its Pro Rata Share of the amount of the drawing, whereupon the participating Lenders shall (subject to Section 3.04(d)) each be deemed to have made a Revolving Loan that is a Reference Rate Loan to the Borrower in that amount.  If any Revolving Loan Lender so notified fails to make available to the Administrative Agent the amount of such Lender's Pro Rata Share of such amount by no later than 2:00 p.m. (New York time) on the Drawing Date, then interest shall accrue on such Lender's obligation to make such payment, from the Drawing Date to the date on which such Lender makes such payment (i) at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Effective Rate during the first three days following the Drawing Date and (ii) at a rate per annum equal to the interest rate on Revolving Loans that are Reference Rate Loans on and after the fourth day following the Drawing Date.  The Administrative Agent will promptly give notice of the occurrence of the Drawing Date, but failure of the Administrative Agent to give any such notice on the Drawing Date or in sufficient time to enable any Revolving Loan Lender to effect such payment on such date shall not relieve such Lender from its obligation under this Section 3.04(c), provided that such Lender shall not be obligated to pay interest as provided in Section 3.04(c) (i) and (ii) until and commencing from the date of receipt of notice from the Administrative Agent of a drawing.  Each Revolving Loan Lender's payment to the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 3.04(c) shall be deemed to be a payment in respect of its participation in such Letter of Credit Borrowing and shall constitute a "Participation Revolving Loan" from such Lender in satisfaction of its Participation Commitment under this Section 3.04.
(d)        With respect to any unreimbursed drawing that is not converted into a Revolving Loan to the Borrower in whole or in part as contemplated by Section 3.04(b), because of the Borrower's failure to satisfy the conditions set forth in Section 5.02 (other than any notice requirements) or for any other reason, the Borrower shall be deemed to have incurred from the Administrative Agent a borrowing (each a "Letter of Credit Borrowing") in the amount of such drawing. Such Letter of Credit Borrowing shall be due and payable on demand (together with interest) and shall bear interest at the rate per annum equal to the interest rate on Revolving Loans that are Reference Rate Loans.
67

(e)        Each Lender's Participation Commitment shall continue until the last to occur of any of the following events:  (i) the Administrative Agent ceases to be obligated to issue or cause to be issued Letters of Credit hereunder; (ii) no Letter of Credit issued or created hereunder remains outstanding and uncanceled and (iii) all Persons (other than the Borrower) have been fully reimbursed for all payments made under or relating to Letters of Credit.
Section 3.05                          Repayment of Participation Revolving Loans.
(a)            Upon (and only upon) receipt by the Administrative Agent for its account of immediately available funds from the Borrower (i) in reimbursement of any payment made by the Administrative Agent under the Letter of Credit with respect to which any Lender has made a Participation Revolving Loan to the Administrative Agent or (ii) in payment of interest on such a payment made by the Administrative Agent under such a Letter of Credit, the Administrative Agent will pay to each Revolving Loan Lender, in the same funds as those received by the Administrative Agent, the amount of such Lender's Pro Rata Share of such funds, except the Administrative Agent shall retain the amount of the Pro Rata Share of such funds of any Revolving Loan Lender that did not make a Participation Revolving Loan in respect of such payment by the Administrative Agent.
(b)        If the Administrative Agent is required at any time to return to the Borrower, or to a trustee, receiver, liquidator, custodian, or any official in any insolvency proceeding, any portion of the payments made by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 3.05(a) in reimbursement of a payment made under the Letter of Credit or interest or fee thereon, each Revolving Loan Lender shall, on demand of the Administrative Agent, forthwith return to the Administrative Agent the amount of its Pro Rata Share of any amounts so returned by the Administrative Agent plus interest at the Federal Funds Effective Rate.
Section 3.06                          Documentation.  The Borrower agrees to be bound by the terms of the Letter of Credit Application and by the L/C Issuer's interpretations of any Letter of Credit issued for the Borrower's Loan Account and by the L/C Issuer's written regulations and customary practices relating to letters of credit, though the L/C Issuer's interpretations may be different from the Borrower's interpretations.  In the event of a conflict between the Letter of Credit Application and this Agreement, this Agreement shall govern.  It is understood and agreed that, except in the case of gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable judgment), the L/C Issuer shall not be liable for any error, negligence and/or mistakes, whether of omission or commission, in following the Borrower's instructions or those contained in the Letters of Credit or any modifications, amendments or supplements thereto.
68

Section 3.07                          Determination to Honor Drawing Request.  In determining whether to honor any request for drawing under any Letter of Credit by the beneficiary thereof, the Administrative Agent shall be responsible only to determine that the documents and certificates required to be delivered under such Letter of Credit have been delivered and that they comply on their face with the requirements of such Letter of Credit and that any other drawing condition appearing on the face of such Letter of Credit has been satisfied in the manner so set forth.
Section 3.08                          Nature of Participation and Reimbursement Obligations.  Each Revolving Loan Lender's obligation in accordance with this Agreement to make the Revolving Loans or Participation Revolving Loans as a result of a drawing under a Letter of Credit, and the obligations of the Borrower to reimburse the Administrative Agent upon a draw under a Letter of Credit, shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be performed strictly in accordance with the terms of this Article III under all circumstances, including the following circumstances:
(a)            any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Lender may have against the Administrative Agent, the Borrower or any other Person for any reason whatsoever;
(b)            the failure of the Borrower or any other Person to comply, in connection with a Letter of Credit Borrowing, with the conditions set forth in this Agreement for the making of a Revolving Loan, it being acknowledged that such conditions are not required for the making of a Letter of Credit Borrowing and the obligation of the Lenders to make Participation Revolving Loans under Section 3.04;
(c)            any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit, this Agreement or any other Loan Documents;
(d)            any claim of breach of warranty that might be made by the Borrower or any Lender against the beneficiary of a Letter of Credit, or the existence of any claim, set-off, recoupment, counterclaim, crossclaim, defense or other right which the Borrower or any Lender may have at any time against a beneficiary, any successor beneficiary or any transferee of any Letter of Credit or the proceeds thereof (or any Persons for whom any such transferee may be acting), the Administrative Agent or any Lender or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, such Letter of Credit, the transactions contemplated herein or any unrelated transactions (including any underlying transaction between the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries and the beneficiary for which any Letter of Credit was procured);
(e)            the lack of power or authority of any signer of (or any defect in or forgery of any signature or endorsement on) or the form of or lack of validity, sufficiency, accuracy, enforceability or genuineness of any draft, demand, instrument, certificate or other document presented under or in connection with any Letter of Credit, or any fraud or alleged fraud in connection with any Letter of Credit, or the transport of any property or provisions of services relating to a Letter of Credit, in each case even if the Administrative Agent or any of the Administrative Agent's Affiliates has been notified thereof;
69

(f)            except as provided in Section 3.07, any payment by the Administrative Agent under any Letter of Credit against presentation of a demand, draft or certificate or other document which does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit;
(g)            the solvency of, or any acts or omissions by, any beneficiary of any Letter of Credit, or any other Person having a role in any transaction or obligation relating to a Letter of Credit, or the existence, nature, quality, quantity, condition, value or other characteristic of any property or services relating to a Letter of Credit;
(h)            any failure by the Administrative Agent or the applicable L/C Issuer to issue any Letter of Credit in the form requested by the Borrower, unless the Administrative Agent has received written notice from the Borrower of such failure within three (3) Business Days after the Administrative Agent shall have furnished the Borrower a copy of such Letter of Credit and such error is material and no drawing has been made thereon prior to receipt of such notice;
(i)            any Material Adverse Effect on the Borrower or any Guarantor;
(j)            any breach of this Agreement or any Loan Document by any party thereto;
(k)            the occurrence or continuance of an insolvency proceeding with respect to the Borrower or any Guarantor;
(l)            the fact that a Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing;
(m)            the fact that the Final Maturity Date shall have expired or this Agreement or the Obligations hereunder shall have been terminated; and
(n)            any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing.
Nothing contained in this Section 3.08 shall be deemed to relieve the L/C Issuer or the Administrative Agent from liability on any claim by the Borrower for the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the L/C Issuer in respect of honoring or failing to honor any drawing under any Letter of Credit or otherwise in respect of any Letter of Credit, but any such claim may not be used as a defense to the Borrower's obligation to reimburse the L/C Issuer for any such drawing.
Section 3.09                          Indemnity.  In addition to amounts payable as provided in Section 12.15, the Borrower hereby agrees to protect, indemnify, pay and save harmless the Administrative Agent and the L/C Issuer from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, damages, penalties, interest, judgments, losses, costs, charges and expenses (including reasonable and documented out-of-pocket fees, expenses and disbursements of outside counsel and allocated costs of internal counsel) which the Administrative Agent or any of the Administrative Agent's Affiliates may incur or be subject to as a consequence, direct or indirect, of the issuance of any Letter of Credit, other than as a result of (a) the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Administrative Agent or the L/C Issuer (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable judgment), or (b) the wrongful dishonor by the Administrative Agent, the L/C Issuer, or any of the Administrative Agent's Affiliates of a proper demand for payment made under any Letter of Credit, except if such dishonor resulted from any act or omission, whether rightful or wrongful, of any present or future de jure or de facto Governmental Authority (all such acts or omissions herein called "Governmental Acts").  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 3.09 or elsewhere in this Agreement, this Section 3.09 shall not apply to Taxes, which shall be governed exclusively by Sections 2.09 and 2.10.

Section 3.10                          Liability for Acts and Omissions.  As between the Borrower and the Administrative Agent and Lenders, the Borrower assumes all risks of the acts and omissions of, or misuse of the Letters of Credit by, the respective beneficiaries of such Letters of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for:  (a) the form, validity, sufficiency, accuracy, genuineness or legal effect of any document submitted by any party in connection with the application for an issuance of any such Letter of Credit, even if it should in fact prove to be in any or all respects invalid, insufficient, inaccurate, fraudulent or forged (even if the Administrative Agent shall have been notified thereof); (b) the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign any such 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; (c) the failure of the beneficiary of any such Letter of Credit, or any other party to which such Letter of Credit may be transferred, to comply fully with any conditions required in order to draw upon such Letter of Credit or any other claim of the Borrower against any beneficiary of such Letter of Credit, or any such transferee, or any dispute between or among Borrower and any beneficiary of any Letter of Credit or any such transferee; (d) errors, omissions, interruptions or delays in transmission or delivery of any messages, by mail, cable, telegraph, telex or otherwise, whether or not they be in cipher; (e) errors in interpretation of technical terms; (f) any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under any such Letter of Credit or of the proceeds thereof; (g) the misapplication by the beneficiary of any such Letter of Credit of the proceeds of any drawing under such Letter of Credit; or (h) any consequences arising from causes beyond the control of the Administrative Agent, including any Governmental Acts, and none of the above shall affect or impair, or prevent the vesting of, any of the Administrative Agent's rights or powers hereunder. Nothing in the preceding sentence shall relieve the Administrative Agent from liability for the Administrative Agent's gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable judgment) in connection with actions or omissions described in such clauses (a) through (h) of such sentence.  In no event shall the Administrative Agent or the Administrative Agent's Affiliates be liable to the Borrower for any indirect, consequential, incidental, punitive, exemplary or special damages or expenses (including without limitation attorneys' fees), or for any damages resulting from any change in the value of any property relating to a Letter of Credit.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent and each of its Affiliates (i) may rely on any oral or other communication believed in good faith by the Administrative Agent or such Affiliate to have been authorized or given by or on behalf of the applicant for a Letter of Credit, (ii) may honor any presentation if the documents presented appear on their face substantially to comply with the terms and conditions of the relevant Letter of Credit; (iii) may honor a previously dishonored presentation under a Letter of Credit, whether such dishonor was pursuant to a court order, to settle or compromise any claim of wrongful dishonor, or otherwise, and shall be entitled to reimbursement to the same extent as if such presentation had initially been honored, together with any interest paid by the Administrative Agent or its Affiliates; (iv) may honor any drawing that is payable upon presentation of a statement advising negotiation or payment, upon receipt of such statement (even if such statement indicates that a draft or other document is being delivered separately), and shall not be liable for any failure of any such draft or other document to arrive, or to conform in any way with the relevant Letter of Credit; (v) may pay any paying or negotiating bank claiming that it rightfully honored under the laws or practices of the place where such bank is located; and (vi) may settle or adjust any claim or demand made on the Administrative Agent or its Affiliate in any way related to any order issued at the applicant's request to an air carrier, a letter of guarantee or of indemnity issued to a carrier or any similar document (each an "Order") and honor any drawing in connection with any Letter of Credit that is the subject of such Order, notwithstanding that any drafts or other documents presented in connection with such Letter of Credit fail to conform in any way with such Letter of Credit.
71


In furtherance and extension and not in limitation of the specific provisions set forth above, any action taken or omitted by the Administrative Agent under or in connection with the Letters of Credit issued by it or any documents and certificates delivered thereunder, if taken or omitted in good faith and without gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable judgment), shall not put the Administrative Agent under any resulting liability to the Borrower or any Lender.
ARTICLE IV

APPLICATION OF PAYMENTS; DEFAULTING LENDERS

Section 4.01                          Payments; Computations and Statements.  vi) The Borrower will make each payment under this Agreement not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York time) on the day when due, in lawful money of the United States of America and in immediately available funds, to the Administrative Agent's Account.  For interest calculation purposes, all payments in respect of interest made by wire transfer or electronic depositary check and received by the Administrative Agent on any Business Day will be credited to the Loan Account on such Business Day.  For all other purposes, all payments made by wire transfer or electronic depositary check and received by the Administrative Agent after 1:00 p.m. (New York time) on any Business Day will be credited to the Loan Account on the next succeeding Business Day.  Payments received in any other form will be credited to the Loan Account on the Business Day following the Business Day such payment constitutes good funds.  All payments shall be made by the Borrower without set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, deduction or other defense to the Agents and the Lenders.  Except as provided in Section 2.02, after receipt (including upon charging the Loan Account), the Administrative Agent will promptly thereafter cause to be distributed like funds relating to the payment of principal ratably to the Lenders in accordance with their Pro Rata Shares and like funds relating to the payment of any other amount payable to any Lender to such Lender, in each case to be applied in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, provided that the Administrative Agent will cause to be distributed all interest and fees received from or for the account of the Borrower not less than once each month and in any event promptly after receipt thereof.  The Lenders and the Borrower hereby authorize the Administrative Agent to, and the Administrative Agent may, from time to time, charge the Loan Account of the Borrower with any amount due and payable by the Borrower under any Loan Document, in which case the Administrative Agent shall disburse the amount so charged to pay such amounts due and payable by the Borrower under the Loan Documents.  Each of the Lenders and the Borrower agrees that the Administrative Agent shall have the right to make such charges whether or not any Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing or whether any of the conditions precedent in Section 5.02 have been satisfied.  Any amount charged to the Loan Account of the Borrower shall be deemed a Revolving Loan hereunder made by the Revolving Loan Lenders to the Borrower, funded by the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Revolving Loan Lenders and subject to Section 2.02 of this Agreement.  The Lenders and the Borrower confirm that any charges which the Administrative Agent may so make to the Loan Account of the Borrower as herein provided will be made as an accommodation to the Borrower and solely at the Administrative Agent's discretion, provided that the Administrative Agent shall from time to time upon the request of the Collateral Agent, charge the Loan Account of the Borrower with any amount due and payable under any Loan Document.  Whenever any payment to be made under any such Loan Document shall be stated to be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension of time shall in such case be included in the computation of interest or fees, as the case may be.  All computations of fees shall be made by the Administrative Agent on the basis of a year of 360 days for the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such fees are payable.  Each determination by the Administrative Agent of an interest rate or fees hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes in the absence of manifest error.
72

(b)            The Administrative Agent shall provide the Borrower, promptly after the end of each calendar month, a summary statement (in the form from time to time used by the Administrative Agent) of the opening and closing daily balances in the Loan Account of the Borrower during such month, the amounts and dates of all Loans made to the Borrower during such month, the amounts and dates of all payments on account of the Loans to the Borrower during such month and the Loans to which such payments were applied, the amount of interest accrued on the Loans to the Borrower during such month, any Letters of Credit issued by the L/C Issuer for the account of the Borrower during such month, specifying the face amount thereof, the amount of charges to the Loan Account and/or Loans made to the Borrower during such month to reimburse the Revolving Loan Lenders for drawings made under Letters of Credit, and the amount and nature of any charges to the Loan Account made during such month on account of fees, commissions, expenses and other Obligations.  All entries on any such statement shall be presumed to be correct and, thirty (30) days after the same is sent, shall be final and conclusive absent manifest error.
Section 4.02                 Sharing of PaymentsExcept as provided in Sections 2.02, 2.05 and 4.03 hereof, if any Lender shall obtain any payment (whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right of set-off, or otherwise) on account of any Obligation in excess of its ratable share of payments on account of similar obligations obtained by all the Lenders, such Lender shall forthwith (a) turn the same over to Administrative Agent, in kind, and with such endorsements as may be required to negotiate the same to Administrative Agent, or in immediately available funds, as applicable, for the account of all of the Lenders and for application to the Obligations in accordance with the applicable provisions of this Agreement, or (b) purchase from the other Lenders such participations in such similar obligations held by them as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender to share the excess payment ratably with each of them in accordance with the applicable provisions of this Agreement; provided, however, that (i) if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from such purchasing Lender, such purchase from each Lender shall be rescinded and such Lender shall repay to the purchasing Lender the purchase price to the extent of such recovery together with an amount equal to such Lender's ratable share (according to the proportion of (A) the amount of such Lender's required repayment to (B) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing Lender of any interest or other amount paid by the purchasing Lender in respect of the total amount so recovered) and (ii) the provisions of this Section shall not be construed to apply to (A) any payment made by the Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement (including the application of funds arising from the existence of a Defaulting Lender), or (B) any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans or participations in Letters of Credit to any assignee or participant, other than to any Loan Party or any Subsidiary thereof (as to which the provisions of this Section shall apply).  The Borrower agrees that any Lender so purchasing a participation from another Lender pursuant to this Section 4.02 may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all of its rights (including the Lender's right of set-off) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were the direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation.
73

75

(c)        In each instance, so long as (i) no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or (ii) an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent has not elected to or has not been directed by the Collateral Agent or the Required Lenders to apply payments in respect of any Obligations and all Proceeds of the Collateral in accordance with Section 4.03(b), Section 4.03(b) shall not be deemed to apply to any payment by the Borrower specified by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent to be for the payment of the principal of or interest on the Term Loan or other related Obligations then due and payable under any provision of this Agreement or the prepayment of all or part of the principal of the Term Loan in accordance with the terms and conditions of Section 2.05.

76

Section 4.04                          Defaulting Lenders.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then, until such time as such Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable law:
(a)            The Administrative Agent shall not be obligated to transfer to such Defaulting Lender any payments made by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent for such Defaulting Lender's benefit, and, in the absence of such transfer to such Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent shall transfer any such payments to each other non-Defaulting Lender ratably in accordance with their Pro Rata Shares (without giving effect to the Pro Rata Shares of such Defaulting Lender) (but only to the extent that such Defaulting Lender's Loans were funded by the other Lenders) or, if so directed by the Borrower and if no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing (and to the extent such Defaulting Lender's Loans were not funded by the other Lenders), retain the same to be re-advanced to the Borrower as if such Defaulting Lender had made such Loans to the Borrower.  Subject to the foregoing, the Administrative Agent may hold and, in its discretion, re-lend to the Borrower for the account of such Defaulting Lender the amount of all such payments received and retained by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender.
(b)            Any such failure to fund by any Defaulting Lender shall constitute a material breach by such Defaulting Lender of this Agreement and shall entitle the Borrower to replace the Defaulting Lender with one or more substitute Lenders, and the Defaulting Lender shall have no right to refuse to be replaced hereunder.  Such notice to replace the Defaulting Lender shall specify an effective date for such replacement, which date shall not be later than 15 Business Days after the date such notice is given.  Prior to the effective date of such replacement, the Defaulting Lender shall execute and deliver an Assignment and Acceptance, subject only to the Defaulting Lender being repaid its share of the outstanding Obligations without any premium or penalty of any kind whatsoever.  If the Defaulting Lender shall refuse or fail to execute and deliver any such Assignment and Acceptance prior to the effective date of such replacement, the Defaulting Lender shall be deemed to have executed and delivered such Assignment and Acceptance.  The replacement of any Defaulting Lender shall be made in accordance with the terms of Section 12.07.
(c)            The operation of this Section shall not be construed to increase or otherwise affect the Commitments of any Lender, to relieve or excuse the performance by such Defaulting Lender or any other Lender of its duties and obligations hereunder, or to relieve or excuse the performance by the Borrower of its duties and obligations hereunder to the Administrative Agent or to the Lenders other than such Defaulting Lender.
(d)            A Defaulting Lender shall not be entitled to give instructions to any Agent or to approve, disapprove, consent to or vote on any matters relating to this Agreement and the Loan Documents.  All amendments, waivers and other modifications of this Agreement and the Loan Documents may be made without regard to a Defaulting Lender, except as specifically set forth in Section 12.02.
(e)            Other than as expressly set forth in this Section 4.04, the rights and obligations of a Defaulting Lender (including the obligation to indemnify the Agents) and the other parties hereto shall remain unchanged.  Nothing in this Section 4.04 shall be deemed to release any Defaulting Lender from its obligations under this Agreement and the Loan Documents, shall alter such obligations, shall operate as a waiver of any default by such Defaulting Lender hereunder, or shall prejudice any rights which the Borrower, Agent or any Lender may have against any Defaulting Lender as a result of any default by such Defaulting Lender hereunder.
77

(f)            This Section shall remain effective with respect to such Lender until either (i) the Obligations under this Agreement shall have been declared or shall have become immediately due and payable or (ii) the non-Defaulting Lenders, the Agents, and the Borrower shall have waived such Defaulting Lender's default in writing, and the Defaulting Lender makes its Pro Rata Share of the applicable defaulted Loans and pays to the Agents all amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender in respect thereof; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while such Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from such Lender's having been a Defaulting Lender.

MANAGEMENT, COLLECTION AND STATUS OF
ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE AND OTHER COLLATERAL
Section 8.01                          Collection of Accounts Receivable; Management of Collateralvii)  The Loan Parties shall (i) establish and maintain cash management services of a type and on terms reasonably satisfactory to the Agents at one or more of the banks set forth on Schedule 8.01 (each a "Cash Management Bank") and (ii) except as otherwise provided under Section 8.01(b), deposit or cause to be deposited promptly, and in any event no later than the next Business Day after the date of receipt thereof, all proceeds in respect of any Collateral, all Collections (of a nature susceptible to a deposit in a bank account) and all other amounts received by any Loan Party into a Cash Management Account.
(b)                On or prior to the Restatement Effective Date, the Loan Parties shall, with respect to each Cash Management Account, deliver to the Collateral Agent a Cash Management Agreement with respect to such Cash Management Account.  The Loan Parties shall not maintain, and shall not permit any of their Subsidiaries to maintain, cash, Cash Equivalents or other amounts in any deposit account or securities account, unless the Collateral Agent shall have received a Cash Management Agreement in respect of each such deposit account or securities account (other than (i) accounts specifically and exclusively used for payroll, payroll taxes and other employee wage and benefit payments to or for the benefit of any Loan Party's employees, (ii) accounts of any Subsidiary of the Borrower not located in the United States that do not contain deposits in an aggregate amount in excess of $2,000,000 at any one time for all such accounts and (iii) securities accounts specifically and exclusively used for maintaining funds pursuant to that certain Nonqualified Deferred Compensation Plan of the Borrower dated as of May 14, 2008).
(c)            Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in a Cash Management Agreement with respect to a Cash Management Account, all amounts received in such Cash Management Account shall be wired each Business Day into the Administrative Agent's Account.
(d)            So long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Borrower may amend Schedule 8.01 to add or replace a Cash Management Bank or Cash Management Account; provided, however, that (i) such prospective Cash Management Bank shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Agents and the Agents shall have consented in writing in advance to the opening of such Cash Management Account with the prospective Cash Management Bank, and (ii) prior to the time of the opening of such Cash Management Account, each Loan Party and such prospective Cash Management Bank shall have executed and delivered to the Collateral Agent a Cash Management Agreement.  Each Loan Party shall close any of its Cash Management Accounts (and establish replacement cash management accounts in accordance with the foregoing sentence) promptly and in any event within 30 days of notice from any Agent that the creditworthiness of any Cash Management Bank is no longer acceptable in such Agent's reasonable judgment, or that the operating performance, funds transfer, or availability procedures or performance of such Cash Management Bank with respect to Cash Management Accounts or the Collateral Agent's liability under any Cash Management Agreement with such Cash Management Bank is no longer acceptable in such Agent's reasonable judgment.
108

(e)            The Cash Management Accounts shall be cash collateral accounts, with all cash, checks and similar items of payment in such accounts securing payment of the Obligations, and in which the Loan Parties are hereby deemed to have granted a Lien to Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Agents and the Lenders.  All checks, drafts, notes, money orders, acceptances, cash and other evidences of Indebtedness received directly by any Loan Party from any of its Account Debtors, as proceeds from Accounts Receivable of such Loan Party or as proceeds of any other Collateral shall be held by such Loan Party in trust for the Agents and the Lenders and if of a nature susceptible to a deposit in a bank account, upon receipt be deposited by such Loan Party in original form and no later than the next Business Day after receipt thereof into a Cash Management Account or other bank account referenced in the definition of Cash Management Accounts as excluded from the scope thereof; provided, however, all Net Cash Proceeds received directly by such Loan Party pursuant to an event described in Section 2.05(c)(v) or (vii) shall be held by such Loan Party in trust for the Agents and the Lenders and upon receipt be deposited by such Loan Party in original form and no later than the next Business Day after receipt thereof into the Administrative Agent's Account.  Each Loan Party shall not commingle such collections with the proceeds of any assets not included in the Collateral.  No checks, drafts or other instrument received by the Administrative Agent shall constitute final payment to the Administrative Agent unless and until such instruments have actually been collected.
(f)            The Loan Parties shall take all reasonable steps to enforce, collect and receive all amounts owing on the Accounts Receivable of the Loan Parties or any of their Subsidiaries.  After the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Collateral Agent may send a notice of assignment and/or notice of the Lenders' security interest to any and all Account Debtors or third parties holding or otherwise concerned with any of the Collateral, and thereafter the Collateral Agent or its designee shall have the sole right to collect the Accounts Receivable and/or take possession of the Collateral and the books and records relating thereto.
(g)            Each Loan Party hereby appoints each Agent or its designee on behalf of such Agent as the Loan Parties' attorney-in-fact with power exercisable during the continuance of an Event of Default to endorse any Loan Party's name upon any notes, acceptances, checks, drafts, money orders or other evidences of payment relating to the Accounts Receivable, to sign any Loan Party's name on any invoice or bill of lading relating to any of the Accounts Receivable, drafts against Account Debtors with respect to Accounts Receivable, assignments and verifications of Accounts Receivable and notices to Account Debtors with respect to Accounts Receivable, to send verification of Accounts Receivable, and to notify the Postal Service authorities to change the address for delivery of mail addressed to any Loan Party to such address as such Agent or its designee may designate and to do all other acts and things necessary to carry out this Agreement.  All acts of said attorney or designee are hereby ratified and approved, and said attorney or designee shall not be liable for any acts of omission or commission (other than acts of omission or commission constituting gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction), or for any error of judgment or mistake of fact or law; this power being coupled with an interest is irrevocable until the Discharge Date.
109

(h)            Nothing herein contained shall be construed to constitute any Agent as agent of any Loan Party for any purpose whatsoever, and the Agents shall not be responsible or liable for any shortage, discrepancy, damage, loss or destruction of any part of the Collateral wherever the same may be located and regardless of the cause thereof (other than from acts of omission or commission constituting gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction).  The Agents shall not, under any circumstance or in any event whatsoever, have any liability for any error or omission or delay of any kind occurring in the settlement, collection or payment of any of the Accounts Receivable or any instrument received in payment thereof or for any damage resulting therefrom (other than acts of omission or commission constituting gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction).  The Agents, by anything herein or in any assignment or otherwise, do not assume any of the obligations under any contract or agreement assigned to any Agent and shall not be responsible in any way for the performance by any Loan Party of any of the terms and conditions thereof.
(i)            If any Account Receivable includes a charge for any tax payable to any Governmental Authority, each Agent is hereby authorized (but in no event obligated) in its discretion to pay the amount thereof to the proper taxing authority for the Loan Parties' account and to charge the Loan Parties therefor.  The Loan Parties shall notify the Agents if any Account Receivable includes any taxes due to any such Governmental Authority and, in the absence of such notice, the Agents shall have the right to retain the full proceeds of such Account Receivable and shall not be liable for any taxes that may be due by reason of the sale and delivery creating such Account Receivable.
(j)            The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to charge the Borrower on the last day of each month with one (1) Business Day of "clearance" or "float" at the rate applicable to Revolving Loans set forth in Section 2.04(a) for all Collections that are received by the Administrative Agent.  This across-the-board one (1) Business Day clearance or float charge on all Collections is acknowledged by the parties to constitute an integral aspect of the pricing of the Lenders' financing of the Borrower and shall apply irrespective of the characterization of whether receipts are owned by the Borrower or the Lenders, and whether or not there are any outstanding Revolving Loans.  This across-the-board one (1) Business Day clearance or float charge shall be for the account of the Agents as set forth in a letter agreement between the Agents.
110

(k)            Notwithstanding any other terms set forth in the Loan Documents, the rights and remedies of the Agents and the Lenders herein provided, and the obligations of the Loan Parties set forth herein, are cumulative of, may be exercised singly or concurrently with, and are not exclusive of, any other rights, remedies or obligations set forth in any other Loan Document or as provided by law.
Section 8.02                          Accounts Receivable Documentation. The Loan Parties will at such intervals as the Agents may reasonably require during the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default, execute and deliver confirmatory written assignments of the Accounts Receivable to the Agents and furnish such further schedules and/or information as any Agent may require relating to the Accounts Receivable, including, without limitation, sales invoices or the equivalent, credit memos issued, remittance advices, reports and copies of deposit slips and copies of original shipping or delivery receipts for all merchandise sold.  The items to be provided under this Section 8.02 are to be in form reasonably satisfactory to the Agents and are to be executed and delivered to the Agents from time to time solely for their convenience in maintaining records of the Collateral.  If the Loan Parties become aware of anything materially detrimental to any of the Loan Parties' customers' credit, the Loan Parties will promptly advise the Agents thereof.
Section 8.03                          Status of Accounts Receivable and Other Collateral.

Section 10.03                                        Rights, Exculpation, Etc.  The Agents and their directors, officers, agents or employees shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by them under or in connection with this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, except for their own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Agents (i) may treat the payee of any Loan as the owner thereof until the Agents receive written notice of the assignment or transfer thereof, pursuant to Section 12.07 hereof, signed by such payee and in form satisfactory to the Collateral Agent (and, with respect to Revolving Loans and/or Revolving Credit Commitments, the Administrative Agent); (ii) may consult with legal counsel (including, without limitation, counsel to any Agent or counsel to the Loan Parties), independent public accountants, and other experts selected by any of them and shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken in good faith by any of them in accordance with the advice of such counsel or experts; (iii) make no warranty or representation to any Lender and shall not be responsible to any Lender for any statements, certificates, warranties or representations made in or in connection with this Agreement or the other Loan Documents; (iv) shall not have any duty to ascertain or to inquire as to the performance or observance of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents on the part of any Person, the existence or possible existence of any Default or Event of Default, or to inspect the Collateral or other property (including, without limitation, the books and records) of any Person; (v) shall not be responsible to any Lender for the due execution, legality, validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto or thereto; and (vi) shall not be deemed to have made any representation or warranty regarding the existence, value or collectibility of the Collateral, the existence, priority or perfection of the Collateral Agent's Lien thereon, or any certificate prepared by any Loan Party in connection therewith, nor shall the Agents be responsible or liable to the Lenders for any failure to monitor or maintain any portion of the Collateral.  The Agents shall not be liable for any apportionment or distribution of payments made in good faith pursuant to Section 4.03, and if any such apportionment or distribution is subsequently determined to have been made in error the sole recourse of any Lender to whom payment was due but not made, shall be to recover from other Lenders any payment in excess of the amount which they are determined to be entitled.  The Agents may at any time request instructions from the Lenders with respect to any actions or approvals which by the terms of this Agreement or of any of the other Loan Documents the Agents are permitted or required to take or to grant, and if such instructions are promptly requested, the Agents shall be absolutely entitled to refrain from taking any action or to withhold any approval under any of the Loan Documents until they shall have received such instructions from the Required Lenders (unless unanimity is required).  Without limiting the foregoing, no Lender shall have any right of action whatsoever against any Agent as a result of such Agent acting or refraining from acting under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents in accordance with the instructions of the Required Lenders (unless unanimity is required).
118

Section 10.04                                        Reliance.  Each Agent shall be entitled to rely upon any written notices, statements, certificates, orders or other documents or any telephone message believed by it in good faith to be genuine and correct and to have been signed, sent or made by the proper Person, and with respect to all matters pertaining to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents and its duties hereunder or thereunder, upon advice of counsel selected by it.
Section 10.05                           Indemnification.  To the extent that any Agent or the L/C Issuer is not reimbursed and indemnified by any Loan Party, and whether or not such Agent or the L/C Issuer has made demand on any Loan Party for the same, the Lenders will, within five days of written demand by such Agent or the L/C Issuer, reimburse and indemnify such Agent and the L/C Issuer from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses (including, without limitation, client charges and expenses of counsel or any other advisor to such Agent or the L/C Issuer), advances or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by, or asserted against such Agent or the L/C Issuer in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents or any action taken or omitted by such Agent or the L/C Issuer under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, in proportion to each Lender's Pro Rata Share, including, without limitation, advances and disbursements made pursuant to Section 10.08; provided, however, that (a) no Lender shall be liable for any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses, advances or disbursements for which there has been a final non-appealable judicial determination that such liability resulted from such Agent's or the L/C Issuer's gross negligence or willful misconduct and (b) only the Revolving Loan Lenders shall be obligated to indemnify the L/C Issuer for any amounts owing to the L/C Issuer pursuant to this Section 10.05.  The obligations of the Lenders under this Section 10.05 shall survive the payment in full of the Loans and the termination of this Agreement.
 
Section 10.06                                        Agents Individually.  With respect to its Pro Rata Share of the Total Commitment hereunder and the Loans made by it, each Agent shall have and may exercise the same rights and powers hereunder and is subject to the same obligations and liabilities as and to the extent set forth herein for any other Lender or maker of a Loan.  The terms "Lenders" or "Required Lenders" or any similar terms shall, unless the context clearly otherwise indicates, include each Agent in its individual capacity as a Lender or one of the Required Lenders.  Each Agent and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, and generally engage in any kind of banking, trust or other business with the Borrower as if it were not acting as an Agent pursuant hereto without any duty to account to the other Lenders.
Section 10.07                                        Successor Agent.  ix)  Any Agent may at any time give at least thirty (30) (or, if the Total Revolving Credit Commitment is reduced to zero, ten (10)) days prior written notice of its resignation to the Lenders, the L/C Issuer and the Borrower, provided that, if the continuing Agent assumes all of the resigning Agent's duties hereunder, such resigning Agent may provide notice on the effective date of its resignation.  Upon receipt of any such notice of resignation, (i) the Required Lenders shall have the right, in consultation with the Borrower so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, to appoint a successor Collateral Agent and (ii) the Collateral Agent shall have the right, with the consent of the Required Revolving Loan Lenders and in consultation with the Borrower so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, to appoint a successor Administrative Agent.  If no such successor Agent shall have been so appointed by the Collateral Agent or the Required Lenders, as the case may be, and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 (or, if the Total Revolving Credit Commitment is reduced to zero, ten (10)) days after the retiring Agent gives notice of its resignation (or such earlier day as shall be agreed by the Required Lenders) (the "Resignation Effective Date"), then the retiring Agent may (but shall not be obligated to), on behalf of the Lenders and the L/C Issuer, appoint a successor Agent that is a U.S. Person.  Whether or not a successor Agent has been appointed, such resignation shall become effective in accordance with such notice on the Resignation Effective Date.
119

(b)            With effect from the Resignation Effective Date, (i) the retiring Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder and under the other Loan Documents (except that in the case of any Collateral held by such Agent on behalf of the Lenders or the L/C Issuer under any of the Loan Documents, the retiring Agent shall continue to hold such collateral security until such time as a successor Agent is appointed and such successor Agent holds such Collateral), and (ii) all payments, communications and determinations provided to be made by, to or through such retiring Agent shall instead be made by or to the surviving Agent directly, until such time, if any, as the Collateral Agent or the Required Lenders, as the case may be, appoint a successor Agent as provided for above.  Upon the acceptance of a successor Agent's appointment as Agent hereunder, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all of the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Agent, and the retiring Agent shall be discharged from all of its duties and obligations hereunder or under the other Loan Documents.  After the retiring Agent's resignation hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, the provisions of this Article, Section 12.04 and Section 12.15 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Agent in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while the retiring Agent was acting as Agent.
Section 10.08                                        Collateral Matters.
(a)            The Administrative Agent may, in its discretion and without the consent of the Required Lenders, voluntarily permit the outstanding Revolving Loans at any time to exceed the Borrowing Base at such time.  If the Administrative Agent is willing in its sole and absolute discretion to permit such overadvances, such overadvances shall be payable on demand and shall bear interest at the Post-Default Rate; provided that, notwithstanding the funding by the Revolving Loan Lenders of such overadvances, neither the Administrative Agent nor the Lenders shall be deemed thereby to have changed the limits of Section 2.01(a)(i).
(b)            Each Agent may from time to time make such disbursements and advances ("Agent Advances") which such Agent, in its sole discretion, deems necessary or desirable to preserve, protect, prepare for sale or lease or dispose of the Collateral or any portion thereof, to enhance the likelihood or maximize the amount of repayment by the Borrower of the Loans, Reimbursement Obligations, Letter of Credit Obligations and other Obligations or to pay any other amount chargeable to the Borrower pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, including, without limitation, costs, fees and expenses as described in Section 12.04.  The Agent Advances shall be repayable on demand and be secured by the Collateral and shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the rate then applicable to Revolving Loans that are Reference Rate Loans.  The Agent Advances shall constitute Obligations hereunder which may be charged to the Loan Account in accordance with Section 4.01.  The Agent making any Agent Advances shall notify the other Agent, each Lender and the Borrower in writing of each such Agent Advance, which notice shall include a description of the purpose of such Agent Advance.  Without limitation to its obligations pursuant to Section 10.05, each Lender agrees that it shall make available to the Agent making any Agent Advances, upon such Agent's demand, in Dollars in immediately available funds, the amount equal to such Lender's Pro Rata Share of each such Agent Advance.  If such funds are not made available to such Agent by such Lender, such Agent shall be entitled to recover such funds on demand from such Lender, together with interest thereon for each day from the date such payment was due until the date such amount is paid to such Agent, at the Federal Funds Effective Rate for three Business Days and thereafter at the Reference Rate.

(c)            The Lenders hereby irrevocably authorize the Collateral Agent, at its option and in its discretion, to release any Lien granted to or held by the Collateral Agent upon any Collateral upon the Discharge Date; or constituting property being sold or disposed of in the ordinary course of any Loan Party's business or otherwise in compliance with the terms of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents; or constituting property in which the Loan Parties owned no interest at the time the Lien was granted or at any time thereafter; or if approved, authorized or ratified in writing by the Lenders.  Upon request by the Collateral Agent at any time, the Lenders will confirm in writing the Collateral Agent's authority to release particular types or items of Collateral pursuant to this Section 10.08(c).
(d)            Without in any manner limiting the Collateral Agent's authority to act without any specific or further authorization or consent by the Lenders (as set forth in Section 10.08(c)), each Lender agrees to confirm in writing, upon request by the Collateral Agent, the authority to release Collateral conferred upon the Collateral Agent under Section 10.08(c).  Upon receipt by the Collateral Agent of confirmation from the Lenders of its authority to release any particular item or types of Collateral, and upon prior written request by any Loan Party, the Collateral Agent shall (and is hereby irrevocably authorized by the Lenders to) execute such documents as may be necessary to evidence the release of the Liens granted to the Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Agents and the Lenders upon such Collateral; provided, however, that (i) the Collateral Agent shall not be required to execute any such document on terms which, in the Collateral Agent's opinion, would expose the Collateral Agent to liability or create any obligations or entail any consequence other than the release of such Liens without recourse or warranty, and (ii) such release shall not in any manner discharge, affect or impair the Obligations or any Lien upon (or obligations of any Loan Party in respect of) all interests in the Collateral retained by any Loan Party.
(e)            Anything contained in any of the Loan Documents to the contrary notwithstanding, the Loan Parties, each Agent and each Lender hereby agree that (i) no Lender shall have any right individually to realize upon any of the Collateral under any Loan Document or to enforce any Guaranty, it being understood and agreed that all powers, rights and remedies under the Loan Documents may be exercised solely by the Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Lenders in accordance with the terms thereof, (ii) in the event of a foreclosure by the Collateral Agent on any of the Collateral pursuant to a public or private sale, the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent or any Lender may be the purchaser of any or all of such Collateral at any such sale and (iii) the Collateral Agent, as agent for and representative of the Agents and the Lenders (but not any other Agent or any Lender or Lenders in its or their respective individual capacities unless the Required Lenders shall otherwise agree in writing) shall, with the consent of the Administrative Agent, be entitled (either directly or through one or more acquisition vehicles) for the purpose of bidding and making settlement or payment of the purchase price for all or any portion of the Collateral to be sold (A) at any public or private sale, (B) at any sale conducted by the Collateral Agent under the provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code (including pursuant to Sections 9-610 or 9-620 of the Uniform Commercial Code), (C) at any sale or foreclosure conducted by the Collateral Agent (whether by judicial action or otherwise) in accordance with applicable law or (D) any sale conducted pursuant to the provisions of any Debtor Relief Law (including Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code), to use and apply all or any of the Obligations as a credit on account of the purchase price for any Collateral payable by the Collateral Agent at such sale.
121

(f)            The Collateral Agent shall have no obligation whatsoever to any Lender to assure that the Collateral exists or is owned by the Loan Parties or is cared for, protected or insured or has been encumbered or that the Lien granted to the Collateral Agent pursuant to this Agreement or any other Loan Document has been properly or sufficiently or lawfully created, perfected, protected or enforced or is entitled to any particular priority, or to exercise at all or in any particular manner or under any duty of care, disclosure or fidelity, or to continue exercising, any of the rights, authorities and powers granted or available to the Collateral Agent in this Section 10.08 or in any other Loan Document, it being understood and agreed that in respect of the Collateral, or any act, omission or event related thereto, the Collateral Agent may act in any manner it may deem appropriate, in its sole discretion, given the Collateral Agent's own interest in the Collateral as one of the Lenders and that the Collateral Agent shall have no duty or liability whatsoever to any other Lender, except as otherwise provided herein.
Section 10.09                                        Agency for Perfection.  Each Agent and each Lender hereby appoints each other Agent and each other Lender as agent and bailee for the purpose of perfecting the security interests in and liens upon the Collateral in assets which, in accordance with Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, can be perfected only by possession or control (or where the security interest of a secured party with possession or control has priority over the security interest of another secured party) and each Agent and each Lender hereby acknowledges that it holds possession of or otherwise controls any such Collateral for the benefit of the Agents and the Lenders as secured party.  Should the Administrative Agent or any Lender obtain possession or control of any such Collateral, the Administrative Agent or such Lender shall notify the Collateral Agent thereof, and, promptly upon the Collateral Agent's request therefor shall deliver such Collateral to the Collateral Agent or in accordance with the Collateral Agent's instructions.  In addition, the Collateral Agent shall also have the power and authority hereunder to appoint such other sub-agents as may be necessary or required under applicable state law or otherwise to perform its duties and enforce its rights with respect to the Collateral and under the Loan Documents.  Each Loan Party by its execution and delivery of this Agreement hereby consents to the foregoing.
Section 10.10                                        No Reliance on any Agent's Customer Identification Program.  Each Lender acknowledges and agrees that neither such Lender, nor any of its Affiliates, participants or assignees, may rely on any Agent to carry out such Lender's, Affiliate's, participant's or assignee's customer identification program, or other requirements imposed by the USA PATRIOT Act or the regulations issued thereunder, including the regulations set forth in 31 CFR § 103.121,  as hereafter amended or replaced ("CIP Regulations"), or any other Anti-Terrorism Laws, including any programs involving any of the following items relating to or in connection with any of the Loan Parties, their Affiliates or their agents, the Loan Documents or the transactions hereunder or contemplated hereby:  (1) any identity verification procedures, (2) any recordkeeping, (3) comparisons with government lists, (4) customer notices or (5) other procedures required under the CIP Regulations or other regulations issued under the USA PATRIOT Act.  Each Lender, Affiliate, participant or assignee subject to Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act will perform the measures necessary to satisfy its own responsibilities under the CIP Regulations.
122

Section 10.11                                        No Third Party Beneficiaries.  The provisions of this Article are solely for the benefit of the Agents, the Lenders and the L/C Issuer, and no Loan Party shall have rights as a third-party beneficiary of any of such provisions.
Section 10.12                                        No Fiduciary Relationship.  It is understood and agreed that the use of the term "agent" herein or in any other Loan Document (or any other similar term) with reference to any Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under agency doctrine of any applicable law.  Instead such term is used as a matter of market custom, and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between contracting parties.
Section 10.13                                        Reports; Confidentiality; Disclaimers.  By becoming a party to this Agreement, each Lender:
(a)            is deemed to have requested that each Agent furnish such Lender, promptly after it becomes available, a copy of each field audit or examination report with respect to the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries (each, a "Report") prepared by or at the request of such Agent, and each Agent shall so furnish each Lender with each such Report,
(b)            expressly agrees and acknowledges that the Agents (i) do not make any representation or warranty as to the accuracy of any Reports, and (ii) shall not be liable for any information contained in any Reports,
(c)            expressly agrees and acknowledges that the Reports are not comprehensive audits or examinations, that any Agent or other party performing any audit or examination will inspect only specific information regarding the Borrower and its Subsidiaries and will rely significantly upon the Borrower's and its Subsidiaries' books and records, as well as on representations of their personnel,
(d)            agrees to keep all Reports and other material, non-public information regarding the Borrower and its Subsidiaries and their operations, assets, and existing and contemplated business plans in a confidential manner in accordance with Section 12.19, and
(e)            without limiting the generality of any other indemnification provision contained in this Agreement, agrees:  (i) to hold any Agent and any other Lender preparing a Report harmless from any action the indemnifying Lender may take or fail to take or any conclusion the indemnifying Lender may reach or draw from any Report in connection with any loans or other credit accommodations that the indemnifying Lender has made or may make to the Borrower, or the indemnifying Lender's participation in, or the indemnifying Lender's purchase of, a loan or loans of the Borrower (including Letters of Credit), and (ii) to pay and protect, and indemnify, defend and hold any Agent and any other Lender preparing a Report harmless from and against, the claims, actions, proceedings, damages, costs, expenses, and other amounts (including, attorneys fees and costs) incurred by any such Agent and any such other Lender preparing a Report as the direct or indirect result of any third parties who might obtain all or part of any Report through the indemnifying Lender.
123

Section 10.14                                        Collateral Agent May File Proofs of Claim. In case of the pendency of any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law the Collateral Agent (irrespective of whether the principal of any Loan or Reimbursement Obligation shall then be due and payable as herein expressed or by declaration or otherwise and irrespective of whether any Agent shall have made any demand on the Borrower) shall be entitled and empowered (but not obligated) by intervention in such proceeding or otherwise:
(a)            to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of the principal and interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Loans, Reimbursement Obligations and all other Obligations that are owing and unpaid and to file such other documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Agents, the Lenders and the L/C Issuer (including any claim for the compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Agents, the Lenders and the L/C Issuer and their respective agents and counsel and all other amounts due the Agents, the Lenders and the L/C Issuer hereunder and under the other Loan Documents) allowed in such judicial proceeding; and
(b)            to collect and receive any monies or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same;
and any custodian, receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator, sequestrator or other similar official in any such judicial proceeding is hereby authorized by each Agent, each Lender and the L/C Issuer to make such payments to the Collateral Agent and, in the event that the Collateral Agent shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Agents, the Lenders and the L/C Issuer, to pay to the Collateral Agent any amount due for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Collateral Agent and its agents and counsel, and any other amounts due the Collateral Agent hereunder and under the other Loan Documents.
Section 10.15                                        Subordination Agreement.  Each Lender hereby grants to the Collateral Agent all requisite authority to enter into or otherwise become bound by the Wanxiang Subordination Agreement and to bind the Lenders thereto by the Collateral Agent's entering into or otherwise becoming bound thereby, and no further consent or approval on the part of any Lender is or will be required in connection with the performance by the Collateral Agent of the Wanxiang Subordination Agreement

Section 12.02                                        Amendments, Etc.  x) No amendment or waiver of any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, and no consent to any departure by any Loan Party therefrom, shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed (x) in the case of an amendment, consent or waiver to cure any ambiguity, omission, defect or inconsistency or granting a new Lien for the benefit of the Agents and the Lenders or extending an existing Lien over additional property, by the Agents and the Borrower, (y) in the case of any other waiver or consent, by the Required Lenders (or by the Collateral Agent with the consent of the Required Lenders) and (z) in the case of any other amendment, by the Required Lenders (or by the Collateral Agent with the consent of the Required Lenders) and the Borrower, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given; provided, however, that no amendment, waiver or consent shall:
(i)            increase the Commitment of any Lender, reduce the principal of, or interest on (other than a waiver of default interest), the Loans or the Reimbursement Obligations payable to any Lender, reduce the amount of any fee payable for the account of any Lender, or postpone or extend any scheduled date fixed for any payment of principal of, or interest or fees on, the Loans or Letter of Credit Obligations payable to any Lender, in each case, without the written consent of such Lender;

127


(iv)            amend the definition of "Required Lenders", "Required Revolving Loan Lenders", "Required Term Loan Lenders" or "Pro Rata Share" without the written consent of each Lender;
 
(v)            release all or a substantial portion of the Collateral (except as otherwise provided in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents), subordinate any Lien granted in favor of the Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Agents and the Lenders, or release the Borrower or any Guarantor (except in connection with a Disposition of the Equity Interests thereof permitted by Section 7.02(c)(i)), in each case, without the written consent of each Lender;
(vi)            amend, modify or waive Section 4.02, Section 4.03 or this Section 12.02 of this Agreement without the written consent of each Lender; or
(vii)            amend the definition of "Book Value," "Borrowing Base," "Eligible Accounts Receivable," "Eligible Inventory," "Dilution," "Dilution Reserves", "Net Amount of Eligible Accounts Receivable," "Net Liquidation Percentage", or "Reserves" in each case, without the written consent of each Lender.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, (A) no amendment, waiver or consent shall, unless in writing and signed by an Agent or the L/C Issuer, affect the rights or duties of such Agent or the L/C Issuer (but not in its capacity as a Lender) under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, (B) any amendment, waiver or consent to any provision of this Agreement (including Sections 4.01 and 4.02) that permits any Loan Party or any of their respective Affiliates to purchase Loans on a non-pro rata basis, become an eligible assignee pursuant to Section 12.07 and/or make offers to make optional prepayments on a non-pro rata basis shall require the prior written consent of the Required Lenders rather than the prior written consent of each Lender directly affected thereby and (C) the consent of the Borrower shall not be required to change any order of priority set forth in Section 2.05(d) and Section 4.03.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, no Defaulting Lender, Loan Party or any of their respective Affiliates that is a Lender shall have any right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent under the Loan Documents and any Loans held by such Person for purposes hereof shall be automatically deemed to be voted pro rata according to the Loans of all other Lenders in the aggregate (other than such Defaulting Lender, Loan Party or Affiliate).

128

Section 12.03                                        No Waiver; Remedies, Etc.  No failure on the part of any Agent or any Lender to exercise, and no delay in exercising, any right hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall operate as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right under any Loan Document preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right.  The rights and remedies of the Agents and the Lenders provided herein and in the other Loan Documents are cumulative and are in addition to, and not exclusive of, any rights or remedies provided by law.  The rights of the Agents and the Lenders under any Loan Document against any party thereto are not conditional or contingent on any attempt by the Agents and the Lenders to exercise any of their rights under any other Loan Document against such party or against any other Person.

Section 12.06                                        Severability.   Any provision of this Agreement which is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining portions hereof or affecting the validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction.
130

Section 12.07                                        Assignments and Participations.
(a)            This Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of each Loan Party and each Agent and each Lender and their respective successors and assigns; provided, however, that none of the Loan Parties may assign or transfer any of its rights hereunder or under the other Loan Documents without the prior written consent of each Lender and any such assignment without the Lenders' prior written consent shall be null and void.
(b)        Each Lender may (x) with the written consent of the Collateral Agent and, so long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, in consultation with (but not the consent of) the Borrower, assign to one or more other lenders or other entities all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement with respect to all or a portion of its Term Loan Commitment and any Term Loan made by it and (y) with the written consent of each Agent and, so long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, in consultation with (but not the consent of) the Borrower, assign to one or more other lenders or other entities all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement with respect to all or a portion of its Revolving Credit Commitment and the Revolving Loans made by it; provided, however, that (i) such assignment is in an amount which is at least $5,000,000 or a multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof (or the remainder of such Lender's Commitment) (except such minimum amount shall not apply to an assignment by a Lender to (x) a Lender, an Affiliate of such Lender or a Related Fund of such Lender or (y) a group of new Lenders, each of whom is an Affiliate or Related Fund of each other to the extent the aggregate amount to be assigned to all such new Lenders is at least $5,000,000 or a multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof), (ii) except as provided in the last sentence of this Section 12.07(b), the parties to each such assignment shall execute and deliver to the Collateral Agent and the Administrative Agent, for its acceptance, an Assignment and Acceptance, together with any promissory note subject to such assignment and such parties shall deliver to the Collateral Agent, for the benefit of the Collateral Agent, a processing and recordation fee of $5,000 (except the payment of such fee shall not be required in connection with an assignment by a Lender to a Lender, an Affiliate of such Lender or a Related Fund of such Lender), (iii) no written consent of the Collateral Agent or the Administrative Agent and no consultation with the Borrower shall be required (1) in connection with any assignment by a Lender to a Lender, an Affiliate of such Lender or a Related Fund of such Lender or (2) if such assignment is in connection with any merger, consolidation, sale, transfer, or other disposition of all or any substantial portion of the business or loan portfolio of such Lender and (iv) no such assignment shall be made to (A) any Loan Party or any of their respective Affiliates or (B) any Defaulting Lender or any of its Affiliates, or any Person who, upon becoming a Lender hereunder, would constitute any of the foregoing Persons described in this clause (B).  Upon such execution, delivery and acceptance, from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Acceptance and recordation on the Register, which effective date shall be at least 3 Business Days after the delivery thereof to the Collateral Agent and the Administrative Agent (or such shorter period as shall be agreed to by the Collateral Agent, the Administrative Agent and the parties to such assignment), (A) the assignee thereunder shall become a "Lender" hereunder and, in addition to the rights and obligations hereunder held by it immediately prior to such effective date, have the rights and obligations hereunder that have been assigned to it pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance and (B) the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned by it pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance, relinquish its rights and be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Acceptance covering all or the remaining portion of an assigning Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto).  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 12.07(b), a Lender may assign any or all of its rights under the Loan Documents to an Affiliate of such Lender or a Related Fund of such Lender without delivering an Assignment and Acceptance to the Agents or to any other Person (a "Related Party Assignment"); provided, however, that (I) the Borrower and the Administrative Agent may continue to deal solely and directly with such assigning Lender until an Assignment and Acceptance has been delivered to the Administrative Agent for recordation on the Register, (II) the Collateral Agent may continue to deal solely and directly with such assigning Lender until receipt by the Collateral Agent of a copy of the fully executed Assignment and Acceptance pursuant to Section 12.07(e), (III) the failure of such assigning Lender to deliver an Assignment and Acceptance to the Agents shall not affect the legality, validity, or binding effect of such assignment, and (IV) an Assignment and Acceptance between the assigning Lender and an Affiliate of such Lender or a Related Fund of such Lender shall be effective as of the date specified in such Assignment and Acceptance and recordation on the Related Party Register referred to in the last sentence of Section 12.07(d) below.
131

(c)            By executing and delivering an Assignment and Acceptance, the assigning Lender and the assignee thereunder confirm to and agree with each other and the other parties hereto as follows:  (i) other than as provided in such Assignment and Acceptance, the assigning Lender makes no representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility with respect to any statements, warranties or representations made in or in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document or the execution, legality, validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of this Agreement or any other Loan Document furnished pursuant hereto; (ii) the assigning Lender makes no representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility with respect to the financial condition of any Loan Party or any of its Subsidiaries or the performance or observance by any Loan Party of any of its obligations under this Agreement or any other Loan Document furnished pursuant hereto; (iii) such assignee confirms that it has received a copy of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, together with such other documents and information it has deemed appropriate to make its own credit analysis and decision to enter into such Assignment and Acceptance; (iv) such assignee will, independently and without reliance upon the assigning Lender, any Agent or any Lender and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents; (v) such assignee appoints and authorizes the Agents to take such action as agents on its behalf and to exercise such powers under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as are delegated to the Agents by the terms hereof and thereof, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental hereto and thereto; and (vi) such assignee agrees that it will perform in accordance with their terms all of the obligations which by the terms of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents are required to be performed by it as a Lender.
 
(d)       The Administrative Agent shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrower, maintain, or cause to be maintained at the Payment Office, a copy of each Assignment and Acceptance delivered to and accepted by it and a register (the "Register") for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders and the Commitments of, and the principal amount of the Loans (and stated interest thereon) (the "Registered Loans") and Letter of Credit Obligations owing to each Lender from time to time.  Subject to the second to last sentence of this Section 12.07(d), the entries in the Register shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error, and the Borrower, the Agents and the Lenders may treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement.  The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower and any Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.  In the case of an assignment pursuant to the last sentence of Section 12.07(b) as to which an Assignment and Acceptance is not delivered to the Administrative Agent, the assigning Lender shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrower, maintain, or cause to be maintained, a register (the "Related Party Register") comparable to the Register on behalf of the Borrower.  The Related Party Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower and any Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.
132

(e)            Upon receipt by the Administrative Agent of a completed Assignment and Acceptance, and subject to any consent required from the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent pursuant to Section 12.07(b) (which consent of the Collateral Agent must be evidenced by the Collateral Agent's execution of an acceptance to such Assignment and Acceptance), the Administrative Agent shall accept such assignment, record the information contained therein in the Register and provide to the Collateral Agent a copy of the fully executed Assignment and Acceptance.
(f)            A Registered Loan (and the registered note, if any, evidencing the same) may be assigned or sold in whole or in part only by registration of such assignment or sale on the Register or the Related Party Register (and each registered note shall expressly so provide).  Any assignment or sale of all or part of such Registered Loan (and the registered note, if any, evidencing the same) may be effected only by registration of such assignment or sale on the Register or the Related Party Register, together with the surrender of the registered note, if any, evidencing the same duly endorsed by (or accompanied by a written instrument of assignment or sale duly executed by) the holder of such registered note, whereupon, at the request of the designated assignee(s) or transferee(s), one or more new registered notes in the same aggregate principal amount shall be issued to the designated assignee(s) or transferee(s).  Prior to the registration of assignment or sale of any Registered Loan (and the registered note, if any, evidencing the same), the Agents shall treat the Person in whose name such Registered Loan (and the registered note, if any, evidencing the same) is registered on the Register as the owner thereof for the purpose of receiving all payments thereon, notwithstanding notice to the contrary.
(g)            In the event that any Lender sells participations in a Registered Loan, such Lender shall, acting for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent on behalf of the Borrower, maintain, or cause to be maintained, a register, on which it enters the name of all participants in the Registered Loans held by it and the principal amount (and stated interest thereon) of the portion of the Registered Loan that is the subject of the participation (the "Participant Register").  A Registered Loan (and the registered note, if any, evidencing the same) may be participated in whole or in part only by registration of such participation on the Participant Register (and each registered note shall expressly so provide).  Any participation of such Registered Loan (and the registered note, if any, evidencing the same) may be effected only by the registration of such participation on the Participant Register.  The Participant Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower and any Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.
133

(h)            [Intentionally Omitted.]
(i)            Each Lender may sell participations to one or more banks or other entities in or to all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (including, without limitation, all or a portion of its Commitments, the Loans made by it and its Pro Rata Share of the Letter of Credit Obligations); provided, that (i) such Lender's obligations under this Agreement (including without limitation, its Commitments hereunder) and the other Loan Documents shall remain unchanged; (ii) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations, and the Borrower, the Agents and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents; and (iii) a participant shall not be entitled to require such Lender to take or omit to take any action hereunder except (A) action directly effecting an extension of the maturity dates or decrease in the principal amount of the Loans or Letter of Credit Obligations, (B) action directly effecting an extension of the due dates or a decrease in the rate of interest payable on the Loans or the fees payable under this Agreement or (C) actions directly effecting a release of all or a substantial portion of the Collateral or any Loan Party (except as set forth in Section 10.08 of this Agreement or any other Loan Document).  The Loan Parties agree that each participant shall be entitled to the benefits of (and subject to all of the obligations under) Section 2.09 and Section 2.10 of this Agreement with respect to its participation in any portion of the Commitments and the Loans as if it was a Lender, provided that such participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Sections 2.09 and 2.10 with respect to any participation, than its participating Lender would have been entitled to receive, except to the extent such entitlement to receive a greater payment results from a Change in Law that occurs after the participant acquired the applicable participation.
(j)            Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank or loans made to such Lender pursuant to securitization or similar credit facility (a "Securitization"); provided that no such pledge or assignment shall release such Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.  The Loan Parties shall cooperate with such Lender and its Affiliates to effect the Securitization including, without limitation, by providing such information as may be reasonably requested by such Lender in connection with the rating of its Loans or the Securitization.
Section 12.08                                        Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, but all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement.  Delivery of an executed counterpart of this Agreement by telefacsimile or electronic mail shall be equally as effective as delivery of an original executed counterpart of this Agreement.  Any party delivering an executed counterpart of this Agreement by telefacsimile or electronic mail also shall deliver an original executed counterpart of this Agreement but the failure to deliver an original executed counterpart shall not affect the validity, enforceability, and binding effect of this Agreement.  The foregoing shall apply to each other Loan Document mutatis mutandis.

(b)            Without limiting Section 12.15(a) hereof, each Loan Party agrees to, jointly and severally, defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Indemnitees against any and all Environmental Liabilities and Costs and all other claims, demands, penalties, fines, liability (including strict liability), losses, damages, costs and expenses (including without limitation, reasonable legal fees and expenses, consultant fees and laboratory fees), arising out of (i) any Releases or threatened Releases (x) at any property presently or formerly owned or operated by any Loan Party or any Subsidiary of any Loan Party, or any predecessor in interest, or (y) of any Hazardous Materials generated and disposed of by any Loan Party or any Subsidiary of any Loan Party, or any predecessor in interest; (ii) any violations of Environmental Laws; (iii) any Environmental Action relating to any Loan Party or any Subsidiary of any Loan Party, or any predecessor in interest; (iv) any personal injury (including wrongful death) or property damage (real or personal) arising out of exposure to Hazardous Materials used, handled, generated, transported or disposed by any Loan Party or any Subsidiary of any Loan Party, or any predecessor in interest; and (v) any breach of any warranty or representation regarding environmental matters made by the Loan Parties in Section 6.01(r) or the breach of any covenant made by the Loan Parties in Section 7.01(j).  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Loan Parties shall not have any obligation to any Indemnitee under this subsection (b) regarding any potential environmental matter covered hereunder which is caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee, as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction.
137

(c)            The indemnification for all of the foregoing losses, damages, fees, costs and expenses of the Indemnitees set forth in this Section 12.15 are chargeable against the Loan Account.  To the extent that the undertaking to indemnify, pay and hold harmless set forth in this Section 12.15 may be unenforceable because it is violative of any law or public policy, each Loan Party shall, jointly and severally, contribute the maximum portion which it is permitted to pay and satisfy under applicable law, to the payment and satisfaction of all Indemnified Matters incurred by the Indemnitees.
(d)            No Loan Party shall assert, and each Loan Party hereby waives, any claim against the Indemnitees, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) (whether or not the claim therefor is based on contract, tort or duty imposed by any applicable legal requirement) arising out of, in connection with, as a result of, or in any way related to, this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby or referred to herein or therein, the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, any Loan or the use of the proceeds thereof or any act or omission or event occurring in connection therewith, and each Loan Party hereby waives, releases and agrees not to sue upon any such claim or seek any such damages, whether or not accrued and whether or not known or suspected to exist in its favor.
