RECITALS
 
WHEREAS, MPA, the Lenders party thereto from time to time, and PNC, as Agent, are parties to the Revolving Credit, Term Loan and Security Agreement, dated as of June 3, 2015 (as amended, modified or supplemented prior to the date hereof, the “Existing Loan Agreement”);
 
WHEREAS, the Borrowers have requested an amendment and restatement of the Existing Loan Agreement to give effect to certain modifications thereto and to clarify the agreements and understandings between the parties as set forth herein.
 
Amendment and Restatement
 
On the Effective Date, the Existing Loan Agreement shall be amended and restated in its entirety by this Agreement, and the Existing Loan Agreement shall thereafter be of no further force and effect, except to evidence (i) the incurrence by the Borrowers of the “Obligations” under and as defined in the Existing Loan Agreement (whether or not such “Obligations” are contingent as of the Effective Date), (ii) the representations and warranties made by the Borrowers prior to the Effective Date and (iii) any action or omission performed or required to be performed pursuant to such Existing Loan Agreement prior to the Effective Date (including any failure, prior to the Effective Date, to comply with the covenants contained in such Existing Loan Agreement).  The amendments and restatements set forth herein shall not cure any breach thereof or any “Default” or “Event of Default” under and as defined in the Existing Loan Agreement existing prior to the Effective Date.  This Agreement is not in any way intended to (1) constitute a novation of the obligations and liabilities existing under the Existing Loan Agreement or evidence payment of all or any portion of such obligations and liabilities thereunder or (2) impair or affect the liens and/or security interests granted, pledged or assigned by Borrowers to Agent in accordance with the terms of the Existing Loan Agreement and the various other security documents, executed in connection therewith or related thereto.  The Borrowers and Guarantors acknowledge their prior grant of liens and security interests under the Existing Loan Agreement and confirm that such liens continue to secure the respective Obligations, as applicable, under this Agreement.
 

The terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Agents’ and the Lenders’ rights and remedies under this Agreement and the Other Documents shall apply to all of the Obligations incurred under the Existing Loan Agreement and any Notes issued thereunder.
 
On and after the Effective Date, (i) all references to the Existing Loan Agreement (or to any amendment or any amendment and restatement thereof) in the Other Documents (other than this Agreement) shall be deemed to refer to the Existing Loan Agreement, as amended and restated hereby, (ii) all references to any section (or subsection) of the Existing Loan Agreement or in any Other Document (but not herein) shall be amended to become, mutatis mutandis, references to the corresponding provisions of this Agreement and (iii) except as the context otherwise provides, on or after the Effective Date, all references to this Agreement herein (including for purposes of indemnification and reimbursement of fees) shall be deemed to be references to the Existing Loan Agreement, as amended and restated hereby.
 
This amendment and restatement is limited as written and is not a consent to any other amendment, restatement or waiver, whether or not similar and, except as expressly provided herein or in any Other Document, all terms and conditions of the Other Documents remain in full force and effect unless otherwise specifically amended hereby or in any Other Document.
 
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and undertakings herein contained, the Loan Parties, Lenders and Agent hereby agree as follows:

2.2.          Procedures for Requesting Revolving Advances; Procedures for Selection of Applicable Interest Rates for All Advances.
 
(a)           Borrowing Agent on behalf of any Borrower may notify Agent prior to 1:00 p.m. on a Business Day of a Borrower’s request to incur, on that day, a Revolving Advance hereunder.   Should any amount required to be paid as interest hereunder, or as fees or other charges under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or with respect to any Obligation under the Loan Documents, become due, same shall be deemed a request for a Revolving Advance maintained as a Domestic Rate Loan as of the date such payment is due, in the amount required to pay in full such interest, fee, charge or Obligation, and such request shall be irrevocable.
 
(b)           Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a) above, in the event any Borrower desires to obtain a LIBOR Rate Loan for any Advance (other than a Swing Loan), Borrowing Agent shall give Agent written notice by no later than 1:00 p.m. on the day which is three (3) Business Days prior to the date such LIBOR Rate Loan is to be borrowed, specifying (i) the date of the proposed borrowing (which shall be a Business Day), (ii) the type of borrowing and the amount of such Advance to be borrowed, which amount shall be in a minimum amount of $500,000 and in integral multiples of $100,000 thereafter, and (iii) the duration of the first Interest Period therefor.  Interest Periods for LIBOR Rate Loans shall be for one, two or three or six months; provided that, if an Interest Period would end on a day that is not a Business Day, it shall end on the next succeeding Business Day unless such day falls in the next succeeding calendar month in which case the Interest Period shall end on the next preceding Business Day.  No LIBOR Rate Loan shall be made available to any Borrower during the continuance of a Default or an Event of Default.  After giving effect to each requested LIBOR Rate Loan, including those which are converted from a Domestic Rate Loan under Section 2.2(e), there shall not be outstanding more than six (6) LIBOR Rate Loans, in the aggregate.
 
(c)           Each Interest Period of a LIBOR Rate Loan shall commence on the date such LIBOR Rate Loan is made and shall end on such date as Borrowing Agent may elect as set forth in subsection (b)(iii) above, provided that the exact length of each Interest Period shall be determined in accordance with the practice of the interbank market for offshore Dollar deposits and no Interest Period shall end after the last day of the Term.
 
57

(d)           Borrowing Agent shall elect the initial Interest Period applicable to a LIBOR Rate Loan by its notice of borrowing given to Agent pursuant to Section 2.2(b) or by its notice of conversion given to Agent pursuant to Section 2.2(e), as the case may be.  Borrowing Agent shall elect the duration of each succeeding Interest Period by giving irrevocable written notice to Agent of such duration not later than 1:00 p.m. on the day which is three (3) Business Days prior to the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable to such LIBOR Rate Loan.  If Agent does not receive timely notice of the Interest Period elected by Borrowing Agent, Borrowing Agent shall be deemed to have elected to convert such LIBOR Rate Loan to a Domestic Rate Loan subject to Section 2.2(e) below.
 
(e)           Provided that no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, any Borrower may, on the last Business Day of the then current Interest Period applicable to any outstanding LIBOR Rate Loan, or on any Business Day with respect to Domestic Rate Loans, convert any such loan into a loan of another type in the same aggregate principal amount provided that any conversion of a LIBOR Rate Loan shall be made only on the last Business Day of the then current Interest Period applicable to such LIBOR Rate Loan.  If any Borrower desires to convert a loan, Borrowing Agent shall give Agent written notice by no later than 10:00 a.m. (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 Domestic Rate Loan to a LIBOR Rate Loan, or (ii) on the day which is one (1) Business Day prior to the date on which such conversion is to occur (which date shall be the last Business Day of the Interest Period for the applicable LIBOR Rate Loan) with respect to a conversion from a LIBOR Rate Loan to a Domestic Rate Loan, specifying, in each case, the date of such conversion, the loans to be converted and if the conversion is to a LIBOR Rate Loan, the duration of the first Interest Period therefor.
 
(f)           At its option and upon written notice given prior to 10:00 a.m. at least three (3) Business Days (or one (1) Business Day in the case of Advances which are Domestic Rate Loans) prior to the date of such prepayment, any Borrower may, subject to Section 2.2(g) hereof, prepay the Advances 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.  Such Borrower shall specify (i) the date of prepayment of Advances (ii) identify which Advances are LIBOR Rate Loans and which are Domestic Rate Loans and (iii) the amount of such prepayment.  In the event that any prepayment of a LIBOR Rate Loan is required or permitted on a date other than the last Business Day of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto, such Borrower shall indemnify Agent and Lenders therefor in accordance with Section 2.2(g) hereof.
 
(g)           Each Loan Party shall indemnify Agent and Lenders and hold Agent and Lenders harmless from and against any and all losses or expenses that Agent and Lenders may sustain or incur as a consequence of any prepayment, conversion of or any default a by a Borrower in the payment of the principal of or interest on any LIBOR Rate Loan or failure by a Borrower to complete a borrowing of, a prepayment of or conversion of or to a LIBOR Rate Loan after notice thereof has been given, including, but not limited to, any interest payable by Agent or Lenders to lenders of funds obtained by it in order to make or maintain its LIBOR Rate Loans hereunder.  A certificate as to any additional amounts payable pursuant to the foregoing sentence submitted by Agent or any Lender to Borrowing Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
 
58

(h)           Notwithstanding any other provision hereof (but to the extent not duplicative of Section 3.8(c)), if any Applicable Law, treaty, regulation or directive, or any change therein or in the interpretation or application thereof, including without limitation any Change in Law, shall make it unlawful for Lenders or any Lender (for purposes of this subsection (h), the term “Lender” shall include any Lender and the office or branch where any Lender or any Person controlling such Lender makes or maintains any LIBOR Rate Loans) to make or maintain its LIBOR Rate Loans, the obligation of Lenders (or such affected Lender) to make LIBOR Rate Loans hereunder shall forthwith be cancelled and Borrowers shall, if any affected LIBOR Rate Loans are then outstanding, promptly upon request from Agent, either pay all such affected LIBOR Rate Loans or convert such affected LIBOR Rate Loans into loans of another type.  If any such payment or conversion of any LIBOR Rate Loan is made on a day that is not the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such LIBOR Rate Loan, Borrowers shall pay Agent, upon Agent’s request, such amount or amounts set forth in clause (g) above.  A certificate as to any additional amounts payable pursuant to the foregoing sentence submitted by Lenders to Borrowing Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
 
2.3.          Term Loans.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each Lender, severally and not jointly, will make a term loan to MPA in the amount equal to such Lender’s Term Loan Commitment Percentage of $30,000,000 (the “Term Loan”).  The Term Loan shall be advanced on the Amendment and Restatement Closing Date and shall be, with respect to principal, payable as follows, subject to acceleration upon the occurrence of an Event of Default under this Agreement or termination of this Agreement: eighteen (18) consecutive quarterly installments each in the amount of $937,500 commencing October 1, 2018 and continuing on the first Business Day of each quarter thereafter followed by a final payment of all unpaid principal, accrued and unpaid interest and all unpaid fees and expenses on the last day of the Term.
 
The Term Loan shall be evidenced by one or more secured promissory notes (collectively, the “Term Note”) in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit 2.3(a).  The Term Loan may consist of Domestic Rate Loans or LIBOR Rate Loans, or a combination thereof, as Borrowing Agent may request; and in the event that MPA desires to obtain or extend any portion of the Term Loan as a LIBOR Rate Loan or to convert any portion of the Term Loan from a Domestic Rate Loan to a LIBOR Rate Loan, Borrowing Agent shall comply with the notification requirements set forth in Sections 2.2(b) and/or (e) and the provisions of Sections 2.2(b) through (h) shall apply.
 
2.4.          Swing Loans.
 
(a)           Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, and in order to minimize the transfer of funds between Lenders and Agent for administrative convenience, Agent, Lenders holding Revolving Commitments and Swing Loan Lender agree that in order to facilitate the administration of this Agreement:
 
59

(i)            Swing Loan Lender may, at its election and option made in its sole discretion and cancelable at any time for any reason whatsoever, make swing loan advances (each, a “US Swing Loan” and, collectively, the “US Swing Loans”) available to US Borrowers as provided for in this Section 2.4 at any time or from time to time after the date hereof to, but not including, the expiration of the Term, in a minimum amount of $100,000 and in integral multiples of $50,000 thereafter and in an aggregate principal amount up to but not in excess of the Maximum Swing Loan Advance Amount; provided that the outstanding aggregate principal amount of US Swing Loans and the Revolving Advances at any one time outstanding shall not exceed an amount equal to the lesser of (i) the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount less the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all outstanding US Letters of Credit or (ii) the aggregate of the US Formula Amount and the Canadian Formula Amount.  All US Swing Loans shall be Domestic Rate Loans only.  US Borrowers may borrow (at the option and election of Swing Loan Lender), repay and reborrow (at the option and election of Swing Loan Lender) US Swing Loans and Swing Loan Lender may make US Swing Loans as provided in this Section 2.4 during the period between Settlement Dates.  All US Swing Loans shall be evidenced by a secured promissory note (the “US Swing Loan Note”) substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit 2.4(a)(i).  Swing Loan Lender’s agreement to make US Swing Loans under this Agreement is cancelable at any time for any reason whatsoever and the making of US Swing Loans by Swing Loan Lender from time to time shall not create any duty or obligation, or establish any course of conduct, pursuant to which Swing Loan Lender shall thereafter be obligated to make US Swing Loans in the future; and
 
(ii)          Swing Loan Lender may, at its election and option made in its sole discretion and cancelable at any time for any reason whatsoever, make swing loan advances (each, a “Canadian Swing Loan” and, collectively, the “Canadian Swing Loans” and, together with the US Swing Loans, each, a “Swing Loan” and, collectively, the “Swing Loans”), available to Canadian Borrowers as provided for in this Section 2.4 at any time or from time to time after the date hereof to, but not including, the expiration of the Term, in a minimum amount of $100,000 and in integral multiples of $50,000 thereafter and in an aggregate principal amount up to but not in excess of the Maximum Swing Loan Advance Amount; provided that the outstanding aggregate principal amount of Canadian Swing Loans and the Revolving Advances at any one time outstanding shall not exceed an amount equal to the lesser of (i) the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount less the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all outstanding Canadian Letters of Credit or (ii) the aggregate of the US Formula Amount and the Canadian Formula Amount.  All Canadian Swing Loans shall be Domestic Rate Loans only.  Canadian Borrowers may borrow (at the option and election of Swing Loan Lender), repay and reborrow (at the option and election of Swing Loan Lender) Canadian Swing Loans and Swing Loan Lender may make Canadian Swing Loans as provided in this Section 2.4 during the period between Settlement Dates.  All Canadian Swing Loans shall be evidenced by a secured promissory note (the “Canadian Swing Loan Note”) substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit 2.4(a)(ii).  Swing Loan Lender’s agreement to make Canadian Swing Loans under this Agreement is cancelable at any time for any reason whatsoever and the making of Canadian Swing Loans by Swing Loan Lender from time to time shall not create any duty or obligation, or establish any course of conduct, pursuant to which Swing Loan Lender shall thereafter be obligated to make Canadian Swing Loans in the future.
 
(b)           Upon either (i) any request by Borrowing Agent for a Revolving Advance that is a Domestic Rate Loan made pursuant to Section 2.2(a) hereof or (ii) the occurrence of any deemed request by Borrowers for a Revolving Advance that is a Domestic Rate Loan pursuant to the provisions of the last sentence of Section 2.2(a) hereof, Swing Loan Lender may elect, in its sole discretion, to have such request or deemed request treated as a request for a Swing Loan, and may advance same day funds to applicable Borrowers as a Swing Loan; provided that notwithstanding anything to the contrary provided for herein, Swing Loan Lender may not make Swing Loan Advances if Swing Loan Lender has been notified by Agent or by the Required Lenders that one or more of the applicable conditions set forth in Section 8.2 of this Agreement have not been satisfied or the Revolving Commitments have been terminated for any reason.
 
60

(c)           Each Swing Loan shall be made upon Borrowing Agent’s notice to the Swing Loan Lender and the Agent in the form of a written notice, signed by an officer of Borrowing Agent.  Each such notice must be received by the Swing Loan Lender and the Agent not later than 11:00 a.m. on the requested borrowing date, and shall specify (i) the amount to be borrowed and (ii) the requested borrowing date, which shall be a Business Day.  Promptly after receipt by the Swing Line Lender of any notice, the Swing Loan Lender will confirm with the Agent (by telephone or in writing) that the Agent has also received such notice and, if not, the Swing Loan Lender will notify the Agent (by telephone or in writing) of the contents thereof.  The Swing Loan Lender will, not later than 3:00 p.m. on the borrowing date specified in such notice, make the amount of the Swing Loan available to Borrowing Agent at its office by crediting the account of Borrowing Agent on the books of the Swing Loan Lender in immediately available funds.
 
(d)           Upon the making of a US Swing Loan (whether before or after the occurrence of a Default or an Event of Default and regardless of whether a Settlement has been requested with respect to such US Swing Loan), each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment shall be deemed, without further action by any party hereto, to have unconditionally and irrevocably purchased from Swing Loan Lender, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation in such US Swing Loan in proportion to its Revolving Commitment Percentage.  Swing Loan Lender or Agent may, at any time, require the Lenders holding Revolving Commitments to fund such participations by means of a Settlement as provided for in Section 2.6(d) below.  From and after the date, if any, on which any Lender holding a Revolving Commitment is required to fund, and funds, its participation in any US Swing Loans purchased hereunder, Agent shall promptly distribute to such Lender its Revolving Commitment Percentage of all payments of principal and interest and all proceeds of Collateral received by Agent in respect of such US Swing Loan; provided that no Lender holding a Revolving Commitment shall be obligated in any event to make Revolving Advances in an amount in excess of its Revolving Commitment Amount minus its Participation Commitment (taking into account any reallocations under Section 2.22) of the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all outstanding US Letters of Credit.
 
(e)           Upon the making of a Canadian Swing Loan (whether before or after the occurrence of a Default or an Event of Default and regardless of whether a Settlement has been requested with respect to such Canadian Swing Loan), each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment shall be deemed, without further action by any party hereto, to have unconditionally and irrevocably purchased from Swing Loan Lender, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation in such Canadian Swing Loan in proportion to its Revolving Commitment Percentage.  Swing Loan Lender or Agent may, at any time, require the Lenders holding Revolving Commitments to fund such participations by means of a Settlement as provided for in Section 2.6(d) below.  From and after the date, if any, on which any Lender holding a Revolving Commitment is required to fund, and funds, its participation in any Canadian Swing Loans purchased hereunder, Agent shall promptly distribute to such Lender its Revolving Commitment Percentage of all payments of principal and interest and all proceeds of Collateral received by Agent in respect of such Canadian Swing Loan; provided that no Lender holding a Revolving Commitment shall be obligated in any event to make Revolving Advances in an amount in excess of its Revolving Commitment Amount minus its Participation Commitment (taking into account any reallocations under Section 2.22) of the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all outstanding Canadian Letters of Credit.
 
61

2.5.          Disbursement of Advance Proceeds.  All Advances shall be disbursed from whichever office or other place Agent may designate from time to time and, together with any and all other Obligations of the Loan Parties to Agent or Lenders, shall be charged to US Borrowers’ Account or Canadian Borrowers’ Account, as applicable, on Agent’s books.  The proceeds of each Revolving Advance or Swing Loan requested by Borrowing Agent on behalf of any Borrower or deemed to have been requested by any Borrower under Sections 2.2(a), 2.6(b) or 2.14 hereof shall, (i) with respect to requested Revolving Advances, to the extent Lenders make such Revolving Advances in accordance with Section 2.2(a), 2.6(b) or 2.14 hereof, and with respect to Swing Loans made upon any request by Borrowing Agent for a Revolving Advance to the extent Swing Loan Lender makes such Swing Loan in accordance with Section 2.4(c) hereof, be made available to the applicable Borrower on the day so requested by way of credit to such Borrower’s operating account at PNC, or such other bank as Borrowing Agent may designate following notification to Agent, in immediately available federal funds or other immediately available funds or, (ii) with respect to Revolving Advances deemed to have been requested by any Borrower or Swing Loans made upon any deemed request for a Revolving Advance by any Borrower, be disbursed to Agent to be applied to the applicable outstanding Obligations giving rise to such deemed request.  During the Term, Borrower may use the Revolving Advances and Swing Loans by borrowing, prepaying and reborrowing, all in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof.
 
2.6.          Making and Settlement of Advances.
 
(a)           Each borrowing of Revolving Advances shall be advanced according to the applicable Revolving Commitment Percentages of Lenders holding the Revolving Commitments (subject to any contrary terms of Section 2.22).  The Term Loan shall be advanced according to the applicable Term Loan Commitment Percentages of Lenders holding the Term Loan Commitments.  Each borrowing of US Swing Loans shall be advanced by Swing Loan Lender alone. Each borrowing of Canadian Swing Loans shall be advanced by Swing Loan Lender alone.
 
(b)           Promptly after receipt by Agent of a request or a deemed request for a Revolving Advance pursuant to Section 2.2(a) and, with respect to Revolving Advances, to the extent Agent elects not to provide a Swing Loan or the making of a Swing Loan would result in the aggregate amount of all outstanding Swing Loans exceeding the maximum amount permitted hereunder, Agent shall notify Lenders holding the Revolving Commitments of its receipt of such request specifying the information provided by Borrowing Agent and the apportionment among Lenders of the requested Revolving Advance, as determined by Agent in accordance with the terms hereof.  Each Lender shall remit the principal amount of each Revolving Advance to Agent such that Agent is able to, and Agent shall, to the extent the applicable Lenders have made funds available to it for such purpose and subject to Section 8.2, fund such Revolving Advance to Borrowers in Dollars and immediately available funds at the Payment Office prior to the close of business, on the applicable borrowing date; provided that if any applicable Lender fails to remit such funds to Agent in a timely manner, Agent may elect in its sole discretion to fund with its own funds the Revolving Advance of such Lender on such borrowing date, and such Lender shall be subject to the repayment obligation in Section 2.6(c) hereof.
 
62

(c)           Unless Agent shall have been notified by telephone, confirmed in writing, by any Lender holding a Revolving Commitment that such Lender will not make the amount which would constitute its applicable Revolving Commitment Percentage of the requested Revolving Advance available to Agent, Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) assume that such Lender has made such amount available to Agent on such date in accordance with Section 2.6(b) and may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to Borrowers a corresponding amount.  Agent will promptly notify Borrowing Agent of its receipt of any such notice from a Lender.  In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its applicable Revolving Commitment Percentage of the requested Revolving Advance, available to Agent, then the applicable Lender and Borrowers severally agree to pay to Agent on demand such corresponding amount with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to Borrowers through but excluding the date of payment to Agent, at (i) in the case of a payment to be made by such Lender, the greater of (A) (x) the daily average Federal Funds Effective Rate (computed on the basis of a year of 360 days) during such period as quoted by Agent, times (y) such amount or (B) a rate determined by Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation, and (ii) in the case of a payment to be made by Borrowers, the Revolving Interest Rate for Revolving Advances that are Domestic Rate Loans.  If such Lender pays its share of the applicable Revolving Advance to Agent, then the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Revolving Advance.  Any payment by Borrowers shall be without prejudice to any claim Borrowers may have against a Lender holding a Revolving Commitment that shall have failed to make such payment to Agent.  A certificate of Agent submitted to any Lender or Borrowers with respect to any amounts owing under this paragraph (c) shall be conclusive, in the absence of manifest error.
 
(d)           Agent, on behalf of Swing Loan Lender, shall demand settlement (a “Settlement”) of all or any Swing Loans with Lenders holding the Revolving Commitments on at least a weekly basis, or on any more frequent date that Agent elects or that Swing Loan Lender at its option exercisable for any reason whatsoever may request, by notifying Lenders holding the Revolving Commitments of such requested Settlement by facsimile, telephonic or electronic transmission no later than 2:00 p.m. on the date of such requested Settlement (the “Settlement Date”).  Subject to any contrary provisions of Section 2.22, each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment shall transfer the amount of such Lender’s Revolving Commitment Percentage of the outstanding principal amount (plus interest accrued thereon to the extent requested by Agent) of the applicable Swing Loan with respect to which Settlement is requested by Agent, to such account of Agent as Agent may designate not later than 4:00 p.m. on such Settlement Date if requested by Agent by 2:00 p.m., otherwise not later than 4:00 p.m. on the next Business Day.  Settlements may occur at any time notwithstanding that the conditions precedent to making Revolving Advances set forth in Section 8.2 have not been satisfied or the Revolving Commitments shall have otherwise been terminated at such time.  All amounts so transferred to Agent shall be applied against the amount of applicable outstanding Swing Loans and, when so applied shall constitute Revolving Advances of such Lenders accruing interest as Domestic Rate Loans.  If any such amount is not transferred to Agent by any Lender holding a Revolving Commitment on such Settlement Date, Agent shall be entitled to recover such amount on demand from such Lender together with interest thereon as specified in Section 2.6(c).
 
63

(e)            If any Lender or Participant (a “Benefited Lender”) shall at any time receive any payment of all or part of its Advances, or interest thereon, or receive any Collateral in respect thereof (whether voluntarily or involuntarily or by set-off) in a greater proportion than any such payment to and Collateral received by any other Lender, if any, in respect of such other Lender’s Advances, or interest thereon, and such greater proportionate payment or receipt of Collateral is not expressly permitted hereunder, such Benefited Lender shall purchase for cash from the other Lenders a participation in such portion of each such other Lender’s Advances, or shall provide such other Lender with the benefits of any such Collateral, or the proceeds thereof, as shall be necessary to cause such Benefited Lender to share the excess payment or benefits of such Collateral or proceeds ratably with each of the other Lenders; provided, however, that if all or any portion of such excess payment or benefits is thereafter recovered from such Benefited Lender, such purchase shall be rescinded, and the purchase price and benefits returned, to the extent of such recovery, but without interest.  Each Borrower consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under Applicable Law, that each Lender so purchasing a portion of another Lender’s Advances may exercise all rights of payment (including rights of set-off) with respect to such portion as fully as if such Lender were the direct holder of such portion, and the obligations owing to each such purchasing Lender in respect of such participation and such purchased portion of any other Lender’s Advances shall be part of the Obligations secured by the Collateral, and the obligations owing to each such purchasing Lender in respect of such participation and such purchased portion of any other Lender’s Advances shall be part of the Obligations secured by the Collateral.
 
2.7.          Maximum Advances.  The aggregate balance of Revolving Advances plus Swing Loans outstanding at any time shall not exceed the lesser of (a) the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount less the aggregate Maximum Undrawn Amount of all issued and outstanding Letters of Credit or (b) the aggregate of the US Formula Amount and the Canadian Formula Amount.
 
2.8.          Manner and Repayment of Advances.
 
(a)           The Revolving Advances and Swing Loans shall be due and payable in full on the last day of the Term subject to earlier prepayment as herein provided.  The Term Loan shall be due and payable as provided in Section 2.3(a) hereof and shall be due and payable in full on the last day of the Term, subject to mandatory prepayments as herein provided.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, all Advances shall be subject to earlier repayment upon (x) acceleration upon the occurrence of an Event of Default under this Agreement or (y) termination of this Agreement.  Each payment (including, subject to any contrary provisions in Section 2.20, each prepayment) by a Borrower on account of the principal of and interest on the Advances (other than the Term Loan) shall be applied, first to the applicable outstanding Swing Loans and next, pro rata according to the applicable Revolving Commitment Percentages of Lenders, to the outstanding applicable Revolving Advances (subject to any contrary provisions of Section 2.22).  Each payment (including, subject to any contrary provisions in Section 2.20, each prepayment) by any US Borrower on account of the principal of and interest on the Term Loan shall be applied to the Term Loan pro rata according to the Term Loan Commitment Percentages of Lenders.
 
64


(b)           Each Borrower recognizes that the amounts evidenced by checks, notes, drafts or any other items of payment relating to and/or proceeds of Collateral may not be collectible by Agent on the date received by Agent.  Agent shall conditionally credit US Borrowers’ Account or Canadian Borrowers’ Account, as applicable, for each item of payment on the next Business Day after the Business Day on which such item of payment is received by Agent (and the Business Day on which each such item of payment is so credited shall be referred to, with respect to such item, as the “Application Date”).  Agent is not, however, required to credit US Borrowers’ Account or Canadian Borrowers’ Account, as applicable, for the amount of any item of payment which is unsatisfactory to Agent and Agent may charge US Borrowers’ Account or Canadian Borrowers’ Account, as applicable, for the amount of any item of payment which is returned, for any reason whatsoever, to Agent unpaid.  Subject to the foregoing, Borrowers agree that for purposes of computing the interest charges under this Agreement, each item of payment received by Agent shall be deemed applied by Agent on account of the Obligations on its respective Application Date.  All proceeds received by Agent shall be applied to the Obligations in accordance with Section 4.8(h).
 
(c)           Except as expressly provided herein, all payments (including prepayments) of principal, interest and other amounts payable hereunder and under the other Loan Documents to be made by any Borrower shall be made to Agent on behalf of Lenders to the Payment Office, in each case not later than 1:00 p.m. on the due date therefor, in Dollars in federal funds or other immediately available funds and without deduction, setoff or counterclaim.  Agent shall have the right to effectuate payment of any and all Obligations due and owing hereunder by charging US Borrowers’ Account or Canadian Borrowers’ Account, as applicable, or by making Advances as provided in Section 2.2 hereof.
 
2.9.          Repayment of Excess Advances.  If at any time the aggregate balance of any applicable outstanding Revolving Advances, any Swing Loans and/or any Advances taken as a whole exceeds any maximum amount permitted hereunder, such excess Advances shall be due and payable at the Payment Office, within one (1) Business Day of demand.
 
2.10.        Statement of Account.  Agent shall maintain, in accordance with its customary procedures, loan accounts in the name of the US Borrowers (“US Borrowers’ Account”) and in the name of the Canadian Borrowers (“Canadian Borrowers’ Account”) in which shall be recorded the date and amount of each Advance made by Agent or Lenders and the date and amount of each payment in respect thereof; provided, however, the failure by Agent to record the date and amount of any Advance shall not adversely affect Agent or any Lender.  Each month, Agent shall send to Borrowing Agent a statement showing the accounting for the Advances made, payments made or credited in respect thereof, and other transactions between Agent, Lenders and Borrowers during such month.  The monthly statements shall be deemed correct and binding upon Borrowers in the absence of manifest error and shall constitute an account stated between Lenders and Borrowers unless Agent receives a written statement of Borrowers’ specific exceptions thereto within thirty (30) days after such statement is received by Borrowing Agent.  The records of Agent with respect to the US Borrowers’ Account and the Canadian Borrowers’ Account shall be conclusive evidence absent manifest error of the amounts of Advances and other charges thereto and of payments applicable thereto.

(a)           Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, Issuer shall issue or cause the issuance of standby and/or trade letters of credit denominated in Dollars (“Letters of Credit”) for the account of any Borrower except to the extent that the issuance thereof would then cause the sum of (i) the outstanding Revolving Advances plus (ii) the outstanding Swing Loans, plus (iii) the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit, plus (iv) the Maximum Undrawn Amount of the Letter of Credit to be issued to exceed the lesser of (x) the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount or (y) the aggregate of the US Formula Amount and the Canadian Formula Amount (calculated without giving effect to the deductions provided for in Section 2.1(a)(y)(iv) and 2.1(b)(y)(iii)).  The Maximum Undrawn Amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit shall not exceed in the aggregate at any time the Letter of Credit Sublimit.  All disbursements or payments related to Letters of Credit shall be deemed to be Domestic Rate Loans consisting of Revolving Advances and shall bear interest at the Revolving Interest Rate for Domestic Rate Loans.  Letters of Credit that have not been drawn upon shall not bear interest (but fees shall accrue in respect of outstanding Letters of Credit as provided in Section 3.2 hereof).  All Existing Letters of Credit shall be deemed to have been issued pursuant hereto and from and after the Amendment and Restatement Closing Date shall be subject to and governed by the terms and conditions hereof.
 
(b)           Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement, Issuer shall not be under any obligation to issue any Letter of Credit if (i) any order, judgment or decree of any Governmental Body or arbitrator shall by its terms purport to enjoin or restrain  Issuer from issuing any Letter of Credit, or any Applicable Law applicable to Issuer or any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Body with jurisdiction over Issuer shall prohibit, or request that Issuer refrain from, the issuance of letters of credit generally or the Letter of Credit in particular or shall impose upon Issuer with respect to the Letter of Credit any restriction, reserve or capital requirement (for which Issuer is not otherwise compensated hereunder) not in effect on the date of this Agreement, or shall impose upon Issuer any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which was not applicable on the date of this Agreement, and which Issuer in good faith deems material to it, or (ii) the issuance of the Letter of Credit would violate one or more policies of Issuer applicable to letters of credit generally.
 
2.12.        Issuance of Letters of Credit.
 
(a)           Borrowing Agent, on behalf of any Borrower, may request Issuer to issue or cause the issuance of a Letter of Credit by delivering to Issuer, with a copy to Agent at the Payment Office, prior to 10:00 a.m., at least five (5) Business Days prior to the proposed date of issuance, such Issuer’s form of Letter of Credit Application (the “Letter of Credit Application”) completed to the satisfaction of Agent and Issuer; and, such other certificates, documents and other papers and information as Agent or Issuer may reasonably request.  Borrower shall also have the right to give instructions with respect to any application and the disposition of documents that conform with the terms of the applicable letter of credit.  Issuer shall not issue any requested Letter of Credit if such Issuer has received notice from Agent or any Lender that one or more of the applicable conditions set forth in Section 8.2 of this Agreement have not been satisfied or the commitments of Lenders to make Revolving Advances hereunder have been terminated for any reason.
 
66

(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 usance 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 and in no event later than five (5) Business Days prior to the last day of the Term.  Each standby Letter of Credit shall be subject either to the Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits as most recently published by the International Chamber of Commerce at the time a Letter of Credit is issued (the “UCP”) or the International Standby Practices (International Chamber of Commerce Publication Number 590) (the “ISP98 Rules”), or any subsequent revision thereof at the time a standby Letter of Credit is issued, as determined by Issuer, and each trade Letter of Credit shall be subject to the UCP. In addition, no trade Letter of Credit may permit the presentation of an ocean bill of lading that includes a condition that the original bill of lading is not required to claim the goods shipped thereunder.
 
(c)           Agent shall use its reasonable efforts to notify Lenders of the request by Borrowing Agent for a Letter of Credit hereunder.
 
2.13.        Requirements For Issuance of Letters of Credit.
 
(a)           Borrowing Agent shall authorize and direct any Issuer to name the applicable Borrower as the “Applicant” or “Account Party” of each Letter of Credit.  If Agent is not the Issuer of any Letter of Credit, Borrowing Agent shall authorize and direct Issuer to deliver to Agent all instruments, documents, and other writings and property received by Issuer pursuant to the Letter of Credit and to accept and rely upon Agent’s instructions and agreements with respect to all matters arising in connection with the Letter of Credit, the application therefor.
 
(b)           In connection with all trade Letters of Credit issued or caused to be issued by Issuer under this Agreement, each Borrower hereby appoints Issuer, or its designee, as its attorney, with full power and authority if an Event of Default shall have occurred: (i) to sign and/or endorse such Borrower’s name upon any warehouse or other receipts, and acceptances; (ii) to sign such Borrower’s name on bills of lading; (iii) to clear Inventory through the United States of America Customs Department or Canada Border Services Agency (“Customs”) in the name of such Borrower or Issuer or Issuer’s designee, and to sign and deliver to Customs officials powers of attorney in the name of such Borrower for such purpose; and (iv) to complete in such Borrower’s name or Issuer’s, or in the name of Issuer’s designee, any order, sale or transaction, obtain the necessary documents in connection therewith, and collect the proceeds thereof.  Neither Agent, Issuer nor their attorneys will be liable for any acts or omissions nor for any error of judgment or mistakes of fact or law, except for Agent’s, Issuer’s or their respective attorney’s gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final, non-appealable judgment).  This power, being coupled with an interest, is irrevocable as long as any Letters of Credit remain outstanding.
 
2.14.        Disbursements, Reimbursement.
 
(a)           Immediately upon the issuance of each Letter of Credit, each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from Issuer a participation in each Letter of Credit and each drawing thereunder in an amount equal to such Lender’s Revolving Commitment Percentage of the Maximum Undrawn Amount of such Letter of Credit (as in effect from time to time) and the amount of such drawing, respectively.
 
67

(b)           In the event of any request for a drawing under a Letter of Credit by the beneficiary or transferee thereof, Issuer will promptly notify Agent and Borrowing Agent.  Regardless of whether Borrowing Agent shall have received such notice, applicable Borrowers shall reimburse (such obligation to reimburse Issuer shall sometimes be referred to as a “Reimbursement Obligation”) Issuer prior to 12:00 Noon, on each date that an amount is paid by Issuer under any Letter of Credit (each such date, a “Drawing Date”) in an amount equal to the amount so paid by Issuer.  In the event such Borrowers fail to reimburse Issuer for the full amount of any drawing under any Letter of Credit by 12:00 Noon, on the Drawing Date, Issuer will promptly notify Agent and each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment thereof, and such Borrowers shall be automatically deemed to have requested that a Revolving Advance maintained as a Domestic Rate Loan be made by Lenders to be disbursed on the Drawing Date under such Letter of Credit, and Lenders holding the Revolving Commitments shall be unconditionally obligated to fund such Revolving Advance (all whether or not the conditions specified in Section 8.2 are then satisfied or the commitments of Lenders to make Revolving Advances hereunder have been terminated for any reason) as provided for in Section 2.14(c) immediately below.  Any notice given by Issuer pursuant to this Section 2.14(b) may be oral if promptly confirmed in writing; provided that the lack of such a confirmation shall not affect the conclusiveness or binding effect of such notice.
 
(c)            Each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment shall upon any notice pursuant to Section 2.14(b) make available to Issuer through Agent at the Payment Office an amount in immediately available funds equal to its Revolving Commitment Percentage (subject to any contrary provisions of Section 2.22) of the amount of the drawing, whereupon the participating Lenders shall (subject to Section 2.14(d)) each be deemed to have made a Revolving Advance maintained as a Domestic Rate Loan to Borrowers in that amount.  If any Lender holding a Revolving Commitment so notified fails to make available to Agent, for the benefit of Issuer, the amount of such Lender’s Revolving Commitment Percentage of such amount by 2:00 p.m. 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 (3) days following the Drawing Date and (ii) at a rate per annum equal to the rate applicable to Revolving Advances maintained as a Domestic Rate Loan on and after the fourth day following the Drawing Date.  Agent and Issuer will promptly give notice of the occurrence of the Drawing Date, but failure of Agent or Issuer to give any such notice on the Drawing Date or in sufficient time to enable any Lender holding a Revolving Commitment to effect such payment on such date shall not relieve such Lender from its obligations under this Section 2.14(c); provided that such Lender shall not be obligated to pay interest as provided in Section 2.14(c)(i) and (ii) until and commencing from the date of receipt of notice from Agent or Issuer of a drawing.
 
(d)           With respect to any unreimbursed drawing that is not converted into a Revolving Advance maintained as a Domestic Rate Loan to Borrowers in whole or in part as contemplated by Section 2.14(b), because of Borrowers’ failure to satisfy the conditions set forth in Section 8.2 hereof (other than any notice requirements) or for any other reason, Borrowers shall be deemed to have incurred from 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 applicable to a Revolving Advance maintained as a Domestic Rate Loan.  Each applicable Lender’s payment to Agent pursuant to Section 2.14(c) shall be deemed to be a payment in respect of its participation in such Letter of Credit Borrowing and shall constitute a “Participation Advance” from such Lender in satisfaction of its Participation Commitment in respect of the applicable Letter of Credit under this Section 2.14.
 
68

(e)           Each applicable Lender’s Participation Commitment in respect of the Letters of Credit shall continue until the last to occur of any of the following events: (x) Issuer ceases to be obligated to issue or cause to be issued Letters of Credit hereunder; (y) no Letter of Credit issued or created hereunder remains outstanding and uncancelled; and (z) all Persons (other than Borrowers) have been fully reimbursed for all payments made under or relating to Letters of Credit.
 
2.15.        Repayment of Participation Advances.
 
(a)           Upon (and only upon) receipt by Agent for the account of Issuer of immediately available funds from Borrowers (i) in reimbursement of any payment made by Issuer or Agent under the Letter of Credit with respect to which any Lender has made a Participation Advance to Agent, or (ii) in payment of interest on such a payment made by Issuer or Agent under such a Letter of Credit, Agent will pay to each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment, in the same funds as those received by Agent, the amount of such Lender’s Revolving Commitment Percentage of such funds, except Agent shall retain the amount of the Revolving Commitment Percentage of such funds of any Lender holding a Revolving Commitment that did not make a Participation Advance in respect of such payment by Agent (and, to the extent that any of the other Lender(s) holding the Revolving Commitment have funded any portion such Defaulting Lender’s Participation Advance in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.22, Agent will pay over to such Non-Defaulting Lenders a pro rata portion of the funds so withheld from such Defaulting Lender).
 
(b)           If Issuer or Agent is required at any time to return to any Borrower, or to a trustee, receiver, liquidator, custodian, or any official in any insolvency proceeding, any portion of the payments made by Borrowers to Issuer or Agent pursuant to Section 2.15(a) in reimbursement of a payment made under the Letter of Credit or interest or fee thereon, each applicable Lender shall, on demand of Agent, forthwith return to Issuer or Agent the amount of its Revolving Commitment Percentage of any amounts so returned by Issuer or Agent plus interest at the Federal Funds Effective Rate.
 
2.16.        Documentation.  Each Borrower agrees to be bound by the terms of the Letter of Credit Application and by Issuer’s interpretations of any Letter of Credit issued on behalf of such Borrower and by Issuer’s written regulations and customary practices relating to letters of credit, though Issuer’s interpretations may be different from such Borrower’s own.  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), Issuer shall not be liable for any error, negligence and/or mistakes, whether of omission or commission, in following Borrowing Agent’s or any Borrower’s instructions or those contained in the Letters of Credit or any modifications, amendments or supplements thereto.
 
69

2.17.        Determination to Honor Drawing Request.  In determining whether to honor any request for drawing under any Letter of Credit by the beneficiary thereof, Issuer 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.
 
2.18.        Nature of Participation and Reimbursement Obligations.  The obligation of each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment in accordance with this Agreement to make the Revolving Advances or Participation Advances as a result of a drawing under a Letter of Credit, and the obligations of Borrowers to reimburse Issuer 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 Section 2.18 under all circumstances, including the following circumstances:
 
(i)            any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Lender or any Borrower, as the case may be, may have against Issuer, Agent, any Borrower or any Lender, as the case may be, or any other Person for any reason whatsoever;
 
(ii)           the failure of any 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 Advance, it being acknowledged that such conditions are not required for the making of a Letter of Credit Borrowing and the obligation of Lenders to make Participation Advances under Section 2.14;
 
(iii)          any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit;
 
(iv)          any claim of breach of warranty that might be made by any Borrower, Agent, Issuer or any Lender against the beneficiary of a Letter of Credit, or the existence of any claim, set-off, recoupment, counterclaim, cross-claim, defense or other right which any Borrower, Agent, Issuer or any Lender may have at any time against a beneficiary, any successor beneficiary or any transferee of any Letter of Credit or assignee of the proceeds thereof (or any Persons for whom any such transferee or assignee may be acting), Issuer, Agent or any Lender or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, the transactions contemplated herein or any unrelated transaction (including any underlying transaction between any Borrower or any Subsidiaries of such Borrower and the beneficiary for which any Letter of Credit was procured);
 
(v)          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 provision of services relating to a Letter of Credit, in each case even if Issuer or any of Issuer’s Affiliates has been notified thereof;
 
(vi)          payment by Issuer under any Letter of Credit against presentation of a demand, draft or certificate or other document which is forged or does not fully comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit (provided that the foregoing shall not excuse Issuer from any obligation under the terms of any applicable Letter of Credit to require the presentation of documents that on their face appear to satisfy any applicable requirements for drawing under such Letter of Credit prior to honoring or paying any such draw);
 
70

(vii)         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;
 
(viii)        any failure by Issuer or any of Issuer’s Affiliates to issue any Letter of Credit in the form requested by Borrowing Agent, unless Agent and Issuer have each received written notice from Borrowing Agent of such failure within three (3) Business Days after Issuer shall have furnished Agent and Borrowing Agent 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;
 
(ix)          the occurrence of any Material Adverse Effect;
 
(x)           any breach of this Agreement or any Other Document by any party thereto;
 
(xi)          the occurrence or continuance of an insolvency proceeding or Insolvency Event with respect to any Loan Party;
 
(xii)         the fact that a Default or an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing;
 
(xiii)        the fact that the Term shall have expired or this Agreement or the obligations of Lenders to make Advances have been terminated; and
 
(xiv)        any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing.
 
Nothing contained in this Section 2.18 shall be deemed to relieve the Issuer or the Agent from liability on any claim by any Loan Party for the gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable judgment) of the 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 a Borrower’s obligation to reimburse the Issuer for any such drawing.
 
2.19.        Liability for Acts and Omissions.
 
(a)           As between Borrowers and Issuer, Swing Loan Lender, Agent and Lenders, each 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, Issuer shall not be responsible for: (i) 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 Issuer or any of its Affiliates shall have been notified thereof); (ii) 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; (iii) 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 any Borrower against any beneficiary of such Letter of Credit, or any such transferee, or any dispute between or among any Borrower and any beneficiary of any Letter of Credit or any such transferee; (iv) errors, omissions, interruptions or delays in transmission or delivery of any messages, by mail, cable, facsimile, telex or otherwise, whether or not they be in cipher; (v) errors in interpretation of technical terms; (vi) 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; (vii) the misapplication by the beneficiary of any such Letter of Credit of the proceeds of any drawing under such Letter of Credit; or (viii) any consequences arising from causes beyond the control of Issuer, including any Governmental Acts, and none of the above shall affect or impair, or prevent the vesting of, any of Issuer’s rights or powers hereunder.  Nothing in the preceding sentence shall relieve Issuer from liability for Issuer’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 (i) through (viii) of such sentence.  In no event shall Issuer or Issuer’s Affiliates be liable to any 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.
 
71

(b)          Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Issuer and each of its Affiliates:  (i) may rely on any oral or other communication believed in good faith by Issuer 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 Issuer 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 Issuer 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 steamship agent or carrier or any document or instrument of like import (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.
 
(c)           In furtherance and extension and not in limitation of the specific provisions set forth above, any action taken or omitted by Issuer 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 (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable judgment), shall not put Issuer under any resulting liability to any Borrower, Agent or any Lender.
 
72

2.20.        Prepayments.
 
(a)           Mandatory Prepayments.
 
(i)            If any Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries disposes of any property (other than any Disposition of any property permitted by clauses (a) – (h) Section 7.6) which results in the realization by such Person of Net Cash Proceeds in excess of $500,000, such Borrower shall prepay an aggregate principal amount of Advances equal to 100% of such Net Cash Proceeds not later than three (3) Business Days after receipt thereof by such Person; provided, that with respect to any Net Cash Proceeds realized under a Disposition described in this Section 2.20(a)(i), at the election of such Borrower (as notified by Borrowing Agent to the Agent on or prior to the date of the required payment under this Section 2.20(a)(i)), and so long as no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, such Borrower or such Subsidiary may reinvest such Net Cash Proceeds for Permitted Acquisitions after the Amendment and Restatement Closing Date or in fixed assets so long as such Borrower or one of its Subsidiaries has committed to make such Permitted Acquisition or reinvestment within 180 days of the receipt of such Net Cash Proceeds and such Permitted Acquisition or reinvestment is made within 360 days after the receipt of such Net Cash Proceeds; and provided further, however, that any Net Cash Proceeds not so reinvested shall be immediately applied to the prepayment of the Advances as set forth in this Section.  Such repayments shall be applied first, to the scheduled principal payments of the Term Loan on a pro rata basis, second, on a pro rata basis to its Letter of Credit Borrowings and the Swing Loans, third, on a pro rata basis to the outstanding Revolving Advances (it being understood that there is no corresponding reduction to the Revolving Commitments), fourth, to Cash Collateralize the Maximum Undrawn Amount of its the L/C Obligations and fifth, the amount remaining, if any, after the prepayment in full of all Letter of Credit Borrowings, Swing Loans and Revolving Advances outstanding at such time and the Cash Collateralization of the Maximum Undrawn Amount in full may be retained by such Borrower for use in the ordinary course of its business).
 
(ii)           In the event of any issuance or other incurrence of Indebtedness (other than Permitted Indebtedness) by the Loan Parties by any Loan Party, the applicable Borrower shall prepay an aggregate principal amount of its Advances equal to 100% of such Net Cash Proceeds not later than three (3) Business Days after receipt thereof by such Person.  Such repayments will be applied in the same manner as set forth in Section 2.20(a)(i) hereof.
 
(iii)          All proceeds received by any Borrower or Agent under any insurance policy on account of any Insurance and Condemnation Event shall be applied in accordance with Section 6.6 hereof.
 
73

Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section 2.20, (i) to the extent that any or all of the Net Cash Proceeds of any Disposition by a Foreign Subsidiary that is not a Loan Party (a “Foreign Disposition”) are prohibited or delayed by applicable local law from being distributed to any Loan Party, the portion of such Net Cash Proceeds so affected will not be required to be applied to repay Advances at the times provided in this Section 2.20 but may be retained by the applicable Foreign Subsidiary so long, but only so long, as the applicable local law will not permit distribution to any Loan Party (Borrowers hereby agreeing to cause the applicable Foreign Subsidiary to promptly take all actions reasonably required by the applicable local law to permit such distribution), and once any of such affected Net Cash Proceeds that would otherwise be required to be used to prepay Advances pursuant to Section 2.20(a) is permitted under the applicable local law to be distributed to any Loan Party, such distribution will be immediately made and such distributed Net Cash Proceeds will be promptly (and in any event not later than two Business Days after such distribution) applied (net of additional taxes payable or reserved against as a result thereof) to the repayment of its Advances pursuant to this Section 2.20 and (ii) to the extent that the Borrowers have determined in good faith that distribution of any of or all the Net Cash Proceeds of any Disposition to a Loan Party would have material adverse tax cost consequences to the Borrowers and their Subsidiaries, such Net Cash Proceeds so affected may be retained by the applicable Foreign Subsidiary; provided that, in the case of this clause (ii), to the extent that distribution on or before the date on which any such Net Cash Proceeds so retained would otherwise have been required to be applied to reinvestments or prepayments pursuant to Section 2.20(a), the applicable Foreign Subsidiary applies an amount equal to such Net Cash Proceeds to invest in assets of the type used in the business of such Borrowers and their Subsidiaries or to prepay Advances of the applicable Foreign Subsidiary.
 
(b)           Voluntary Term Loan Prepayment.  At any time and from time to time, MPA may prepay the Term Loan, without premium or penalty, on any Business Day in whole or in part with respect to the portion of the Term Loan that is comprised of (i) Domestic Rate Loans, in an aggregate amount of $1,000,000 and (ii) LIBOR Rate Loans, in an aggregate amount of $1,000,000.  All such prepayments shall be made (i) upon not less than one (1) Business Day’s prior written notice in the case of Domestic Rate Loans and (ii) upon not upon not less than three (3) Business Days’ prior written notice in the case of LIBOR Rate Loans; in each case given to Agent on the date required.  Upon the giving of such notice, the principal amount of the Term Loan specified in such notice shall become due and payable on the prepayment date specified therein; provided that a notice of prepayment delivered by Borrowing Agent hereunder may state that such notice is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities or the closing of another transaction, the proceeds of which will be used to prepay any Term Loans, in which case such termination may be conditional upon the effectiveness of such other credit facilities or the closing of such other transaction.  Any such voluntary prepayment will be applied as specified in Section 2.20(a)(i).
 
(c)           Voluntary Reductions in Revolving Commitments.  At such time as the Term Loan has been indefeasibly prepaid in full in cash, Borrowers may reduce the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount to an amount not less than the sum of (A) the aggregate unpaid principal amount of all Revolving Advances then outstanding, (B) the aggregate principal amount of all Swing Loans then outstanding, (C) the Maximum Undrawn Amount at such time and (D) the stated amount of all Letters of Credit not yet issued as to which a request has been made and not withdrawn; provided that in no event shall Borrowers be permitted to reduce the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount to an amount less than $20,000,000 (other than the permanent reduction of the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount to zero).  Upon the giving of a notice of reduction in the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount, the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount will be reduced to the amount specified in such notice; provided that a notice of reduction delivered by Borrowing Agent hereunder may state that such notice is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities or the closing of another transaction, the proceeds of which will be used to prepay any outstanding Advances, in which case such termination may be conditional upon the effectiveness of such other credit facilities or the closing of such other transaction.
 
74

2.21.        Use of Proceeds.
 
Borrowers shall apply the proceeds of Advances to (i) repay the Existing Indebtedness, (ii) pay fees and expenses relating to the Transactions, (iii) provide for their general corporate needs, including working capital requirements, Capital Expenditures, Permitted Acquisitions and Permitted Dividends and Stock Buybacks, in each case, to the extent permitted herein and (iv) reimburse drawings under Letters of Credit.  MPA shall not use the proceeds of any Revolving Advance to prepay the Term Loan.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, neither the Loan Parties nor any other Person which may in the future become party to this Agreement or the Other Documents as a Loan Party, intends to use nor shall they use any portion of the proceeds of the Advances, directly or indirectly, for any purpose in violation of Applicable Law.
 
2.22.        Defaulting Lender.
 
(a)           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, in the event any Lender is a Defaulting Lender, all rights and obligations hereunder of such Defaulting Lender and of the other parties hereto shall be modified to the extent of the express provisions of this Section 2.22 so long as such Lender is a Defaulting Lender.
 
(b)           except as otherwise expressly provided for in this Section 2.22, Revolving Advances shall be made pro rata from Lenders holding Revolving Commitments which are not Defaulting Lenders based on their respective Revolving Commitment Percentages, and no Revolving Commitment Percentage of any Lender shall be increased as a result of any Lender being a Defaulting Lender.  Amounts received in respect of principal of any type of Revolving Advances shall be applied to reduce such type of Revolving Advances of each Lender (other than any Defaulting Lender) holding a Revolving Commitment in accordance with their Revolving Commitment Percentages; provided, that, Agent shall not be obligated to transfer to a Defaulting Lender any payments received by Agent for Defaulting Lender’s benefit, nor shall a Defaulting Lender be entitled to the sharing of any payments hereunder (including any principal, interest or fees).  Amounts payable to a Defaulting Lender shall instead be paid to or retained by Agent.  Agent may hold and, in its discretion, re-lend to a Borrower the amount of such payments received or retained by it for the account of such Defaulting Lender.
 
(i)            fees pursuant to Section 3.3(b) hereof shall cease to accrue in favor of such Defaulting Lender.
 
(ii)           if any Swing Loans are outstanding or any Letter of Credit Obligations (or drawings under any Letter of Credit for which Issuer has not been reimbursed) are outstanding or exist at the time any such Lender holding a Revolving Commitment becomes a Defaulting Lender, then:

(A)          Defaulting Lender’s Participation Commitment in the outstanding Swing Loans and of the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit shall be reallocated among Non-Defaulting Lenders holding Revolving Commitments in proportion to the respective Revolving Commitment Percentages of such Non-Defaulting Lenders to the extent (but only to the extent) that (x) such reallocation does not cause the aggregate sum of outstanding Revolving Advances made by any such Non-Defaulting Lender holding a Revolving Commitment plus such Lender’s reallocated Participation Commitment in the outstanding Swing Loans plus such Lender’s reallocated Participation Commitment in the aggregate Maximum Undrawn Amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit to exceed the Revolving Commitment Amount of any such Non-Defaulting Lender, and (y) no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing at such time;
 
(B)          if the reallocation described in clause (A) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, Borrowers shall within two (s) Business Days following notice by Agent (x) first, prepay any outstanding Swing Loans that cannot be reallocated, and (y) second, Cash Collateralize for the benefit of Issuer, Borrowers’ obligations corresponding to such Defaulting Lender’s Participation Commitment in the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all Letters of Credit (after giving effect to any partial reallocation pursuant to clause (A) above) in accordance with Section 3.2(b) for so long as such Obligations are outstanding;
 
(C)          if Borrowers Cash Collateralize any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s Participation Commitment in the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all Letters of Credit pursuant to clause (B) above, Borrowers shall not be required to pay any fees to such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 3.2(a) with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Commitment Percentage of Maximum Undrawn Amount of all Letters of Credit during the period such Defaulting Lender’s Participation Commitment in the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all Letters of Credit are Cash Collateralized;
 
(D)          if Defaulting Lender’s Participation Commitment in the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all Letters of Credit is reallocated pursuant to clause (A) above, then the fees payable to Lenders holding Revolving Commitments pursuant to Section 3.2(a) shall be adjusted and reallocated to Non-Defaulting Lenders holding Revolving Commitments in accordance with such reallocation; and
 
(E)           if all or any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s Participation Commitment in the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all Letters of Credit is neither reallocated nor Cash Collateralized pursuant to clauses (A) or (B) above, then, without prejudice to any rights or remedies of Issuer or any other Lender hereunder, all Letter of Credit Fees payable under Section 3.2(a) with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Commitment Percentage of the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all Letters of Credit shall be payable to the Issuer (and not to such Defaulting Lender) until (and then only to the extent that) such Participation Commitment in the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all Letters of Credit is reallocated and/or Cash Collateralized; and
 
(iii)          so long as any Lender holding a Revolving Commitment is a Defaulting Lender, Swing Loan Lender shall not be required to fund any Swing Loans and Issuer shall not be required to issue, amend or increase any Letter of Credit, unless such Issuer is satisfied that the related exposure and Defaulting Lender’s Participation Commitment in the Maximum Undrawn Amount of all Letters of Credit and all Swing Loans (after giving effect to any such issuance, amendment, increase or funding) will be fully allocated to Non-Defaulting Lenders holding Revolving Commitments and/or Cash Collateral for such Letters of Credit will be provided by Borrowers in accordance with clause (A) and (B) above, and participating interests in any newly made Swing Loan or any newly issued or increased Letter of Credit shall be allocated among Non-Defaulting Lenders in a manner consistent with Section 2.22(b)(iii)(A) above (and such Defaulting Lender shall not participate therein).
 
76

(c)           A Defaulting Lender shall not be entitled to give instructions to Agent or to approve, disapprove, consent to or vote on any matters relating to the Loan Documents, and all amendments, waivers and other modifications of the Loan Documents may be made without regard to a Defaulting Lender and, for purposes of the definition of “Required Lenders”, a Defaulting Lender shall not be deemed to be a Lender, to have any outstanding Advances, a Revolving Commitment Percentage or a Term Loan Commitment Percentage; provided, that this clause (c) shall not apply to the vote of a Defaulting Lender in the case of an amendment, waiver or other modification described in clauses (i) or (ii) of Section 16.2(b).
 
(d)           Other than as expressly set forth in this Section 2.22, the rights and obligations of a Defaulting Lender (including the obligation to indemnify Agent) and the other parties hereto shall remain unchanged.  Nothing in this Section 2.22 shall be deemed to release any Defaulting Lender from its obligations under 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 any Borrower, Agent or any Lender may have against any Defaulting Lender as a result of any default by such Defaulting Lender hereunder.
 
(e)           In the event that Agent, Borrowers, Swing Loan Lender and Issuer agree in writing that a Defaulting Lender has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Lender to be a Defaulting Lender, then Agent will so notify the parties hereto, and, if such cured Defaulting Lender is a Lender holding a Revolving Commitment, then Participation Commitments of Lenders holding Revolving Commitments (including such cured Defaulting Lender) of the Swing Loans and Maximum Undrawn Amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit shall be reallocated to reflect the inclusion of such Lender’s Revolving Commitment, and on such date such Lender shall purchase at par such of the Revolving Advances of the other Lenders as Agent shall determine may be necessary in order for such Lender to hold such Revolving Advances in accordance with its Revolving Commitment Percentage.
 
(f)            If Swing Loan Lender or Issuer has a good faith belief that any Lender holding a Revolving Commitment has defaulted in fulfilling its obligations under one or more other agreements in which such Lender commits to extend credit, Swing Loan Lender shall not be required to fund any Swing Loans and Issuer shall not be required to issue, amend or increase any Letter of Credit, unless Swing Loan Lender or Issuer, as the case may be, shall have entered into arrangements with Borrowers or such Lender, satisfactory to Swing Loan Lender or Issuer, as the case may be, to defease any risk to it in respect of such Lender hereunder.
 
2.23.        Payment of Obligations.  Agent may charge to US Borrowers’ Account or Canadian Borrowers’ Account, as applicable, as a Revolving Advance or, at the discretion of Swing Loan Lender, as a Swing Loan (i) all payments with respect to any of the Obligations required hereunder (including without limitation principal payments, payments of interest, payments of Letter of Credit Fees and all other fees provided for hereunder and payments under Sections 16.5 and 16.9) as and when each such payment shall become due and payable (whether as regularly scheduled, upon or after acceleration, upon maturity or otherwise), (ii) without limiting the generality of the foregoing clause (i), (a) all amounts expended by Agent or any Lender pursuant to Sections 4.2 or 4.3 hereof and (b) all expenses which Agent incurs in connection with the forwarding of Advance proceeds and the establishment and maintenance of any Blocked Accounts or Depository Accounts as provided for in Section 4.8(h), and (iii) any sums expended by Agent or any Lender due to any Borrower’s failure to perform or comply with its obligations under this Agreement or any Other Document including any Borrower’s obligations under Sections 3.3, 3.4, 4.4, 4.7, 6.4, 6.6, 6.7 and 6.8 hereof, and all amounts so charged shall be added to the Obligations and shall be secured by the Collateral.  To the extent Revolving Advances are not actually funded by the other Lenders in respect of any such amounts so charged, all such amounts so charged shall be deemed to be Revolving Advances made by and owing to Agent and Agent shall be entitled to all rights (including accrual of interest) and remedies of a Lender under the Loan Documents with respect to such Revolving Advances.
 
77

2.24.        Increase in Maximum Revolving Advance Amount.
 
(a)           The Borrowing Agent may, at any time after the Amendment and Restatement Closing Date, request that the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount be increased by (1) one or  more of the current Lenders increasing their Revolving Commitment Amount (any current Lender which elects to increase its Revolving Commitment Amount shall be referred to as an “Increasing Lender”) or (2) one or more new lenders (each a “New Lender”) joining this Agreement and providing a Revolving Commitment Amount hereunder , subject to the following terms and conditions:
 
(i)            No current Lender shall be obligated to increase its Revolving Commitment Amount and any increase in the Revolving Commitment Amount by any current Lender shall be in the sole discretion of such current Lender;
 
(ii)           Borrowers may not request the addition of a New Lender unless (and then only to the extent that) there is insufficient participation on behalf of the existing Lenders in the increased Revolving Commitments being requested by Borrower;
 
(iii)          There shall exist no Event of Default or Default on the effective date of such increase after giving effect to such increase;
 
(iv)          After giving effect to such increase, the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount shall not exceed $220,000,000;
 
(v)           Borrowers may not request an increase in the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount under this Section 2.24 more than two (2) times during the Term, and no single such increase in the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount shall be for an amount less than $1,000,000 or increments of $1,000,000;
 
78

(vi)          The Borrowers shall deliver to the Agent on or before the effective date of such increase the following documents in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Agent: (1) certifications of their corporate secretaries or officers with attached resolutions certifying that the increase in the Revolving Commitment Amounts has been approved by such Borrowers, (2) certificate dated as of the effective date of such increase certifying that no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing and certifying that the representations and warranties made by each Borrower herein and in the Other Documents are true and complete in all respects with the same force and effect as if made on and as of such date (except to the extent any such representation or warranty expressly relates only to any earlier and/or specified date), (3) such other agreements, instruments and information (including supplements or modifications to this Agreement and/or the Other Documents executed by Borrowers as Agent reasonably deems necessary in order to document the increase to the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount and to protect, preserve and continue the perfection and priority of the liens, security interests, rights and remedies of Agent and Lenders hereunder and under the Other Documents in light of such increase, and (4) an opinion of counsel in form and substance satisfactory to the Agent which shall cover such matters related to such increase as Agent may reasonably require and each Borrower hereby authorizes and directs such counsel to deliver such opinions to Agent and Lenders;
 
(vii)         The Borrowers shall execute and deliver (1) to each Increasing Lender a replacement Note reflecting the new amount of such Increasing Lender’s Revolving Commitment Amount after giving effect to the increase (and the prior Note issued to such Increasing Lender shall be deemed to be cancelled) and (2) to each New Lender a Note reflecting the amount of such New Lender’s Revolving Commitment Amount;
 
(viii)        Any New Lender shall be subject to the approval of the Agent and Issuer not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed;
 
(ix)          Each Increasing Lender shall confirm its agreement to increase its Revolving Commitment Amount pursuant to an acknowledgement in a form acceptable to the Agent, signed by it and each Borrower and delivered to the Agent at least five (5) days before the effective date of such increase; and
 
(x)           Each New Lender shall enter into an amendment to this Agreement pursuant to which such New Lender shall join and become a party to this Agreement and the Other Documents with a Revolving Commitment Amount as set forth therein and Agent is authorized to enter into, on behalf of the Lenders, any amendment to this Agreement or to any other document as may be necessary to incorporate the New Lender and the applicable increase to the Revolving Commitment Amount therein.
 
(b)           On the effective date of such increase, (i) the Borrowers shall repay all Revolving Advances then outstanding, subject to the Borrowers’ obligations under Sections 3.7, 3.9, or 3.10; provided that subject to the other conditions of this Agreement, Borrowing Agent may request new Revolving Advances on such date (it being understood that the Borrower may repay all or a portion of the existing Revolving Advances with such new Revolving Advances, if any, on a cashless basis) and (ii) the Revolving Commitment Percentages of all of the Lenders holding a Revolving Commitment (including each Increasing Lender and/or New Lender) shall be recalculated such that each such Lender’s Revolving Commitment Percentage is equal to (x) the Revolving Commitment Amount of such Lender divided by (y) the aggregate of the Revolving Commitment Amounts of all Lenders.  Each of the Lenders shall participate in any new Revolving Advances made on or after such date in accordance with their respective Revolving Commitment Percentages after giving effect to the increase in the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount and recalculation of the Revolving Commitment Percentages contemplated by this Section 2.24.
 
79

(c)           On the effective date of such increase, each Increasing Lender shall be deemed to have purchased an additional/increased participation in, and each New Lender will be deemed to have purchased a new participation in, each then outstanding Letter of Credit and each drawing thereunder and each then outstanding Swing Loan in an amount equal to such Lender’s Revolving Commitment Percentage (as calculated pursuant to Section 2.24(b) above) of the Maximum Undrawn Amount of each such Letter of Credit (as in effect from time to time) and the amount of each drawing and of each such Swing Loan, respectively.  As necessary to effectuate the foregoing, each existing Lender holding a Revolving Commitment Percentage that is not an Increasing Lender shall be deemed to have sold to each applicable Increasing Lender and/or New Lender, as necessary, a portion of such existing Lender’s participations in such outstanding Letters of Credit and drawings and such outstanding Swing Loans such that, after giving effect to all such purchases and sales, each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment (including each Increasing Lender and/or New Lender) shall hold a participation in all Letters of Credit (and drawings thereunder) and all Swing Lines in accordance with their respective Revolving Commitment Percentages  (as calculated pursuant to Section 2.24(b) above).
 
(d)           On the effective date of such increase, Borrowers shall pay all cost and expenses incurred by Agent and by each Increasing Lender and New Lender in connection with the negotiations regarding, and the preparation, negotiation, execution and delivery of all agreements and instruments executed and delivered by any of Agent, Borrowers and/or the Increasing Lenders and New Lenders in connection with, such increase (including all fees for any supplemental or additional public filings of any Other Documents necessary to protect, preserve and continue the perfection and priority of the liens, security interests, rights and remedies of Agent and Lenders hereunder and under the Other Documents in light of such increase).
 
III.
INTEREST AND FEES.
 
3.1.          Interest.  Interest on Advances shall be payable in arrears on the first day of each month with respect to Domestic Rate Loans and, with respect to LIBOR Rate Loans, at (a) the end of each Interest Period, and (b) for LIBOR Rate Loans with an Interest Period in excess of three months, at the end of each three month period during such Interest Period; provided further that all accrued and unpaid interest shall be due and payable at the end of the Term.  Interest charges shall be computed on the actual principal amount of Advances outstanding during the month at a rate per annum equal to (i) with respect to Revolving Advances, the applicable Revolving Interest Rate, (ii) with respect to Swing Loans, the Revolving Interest Rate for Domestic Rate Loans and (iii) with respect to the Term Loan, the Term Loan Rate (as applicable, the “Contract Rate”).  Except as expressly provided otherwise in this Agreement, any Obligations other than the Advances that are not paid when due shall accrue interest at the Revolving Interest Rate for Domestic Rate Loans, subject to the provision of the final sentence of this Section 3.1 regarding the Default Rate.  Whenever, subsequent to the date of this Agreement, the Alternate Base Rate is increased or decreased, the applicable Contract Rate shall be similarly changed without notice or demand of any kind by an amount equal to the amount of such change in the Alternate Base Rate during the time such change or changes remain in effect.  The LIBOR Rate shall be adjusted with respect to LIBOR Rate Loans without notice or demand of any kind on the effective date of any change in the Reserve Percentage as of such effective date.  Upon and after the occurrence of an Event of Default, and during the continuation thereof, at the option of Agent or at the direction of Required Lenders (or, in the case of any Event of Default under Section 10.7, immediately and automatically upon the occurrence of any such Event of Default without the requirement of any affirmative action by any party), the Obligations shall bear interest at the applicable Contract Rate plus two percent (2%) per annum (the “Default Rate”).
 
80

3.2.          Letter of Credit Fees.
 
(a)           Borrowers shall pay (x) to Agent, for the ratable benefit of Lenders holding Revolving Commitments, fees for each Letter of Credit for the period from and excluding the date of issuance of same to and including the date of expiration or termination, equal to the average daily face amount of each outstanding Letter of Credit multiplied by the Applicable Margin for Revolving Advances consisting of LIBOR Rate Loans, such fees to be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual number of days elapsed and to be payable quarterly in arrears on the first day of each calendar quarter and on the last day of the Term, and (y) to Issuer, a fronting fee of one quarter of one percent (0.25%) per annum times the average daily face amount of each outstanding Letter of Credit for the period from and excluding the date of issuance of same to and including the date of expiration or termination, to be payable quarterly in arrears on the first day of each calendar quarter and on the last day of the Term. (all of the foregoing fees, the “Letter of Credit Fees”).  In addition, Borrowers shall pay to Agent, for the benefit of Issuer, any and all administrative, issuance, amendment, payment and negotiation charges with respect to Letters of Credit and all fees and expenses as agreed upon by Issuer and Borrowing Agent 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, all such charges, fees and expenses, if any, to be payable on demand.  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 Issuer’s prevailing charges for that type of transaction.  Upon and after the occurrence of an Event of Default, and during the continuation thereof, at the option of Agent or at the direction of Required Lenders (or, in the case of any Event of Default under Section 10.7, immediately and automatically upon the occurrence of any such Event of Default without the requirement of any affirmative action by any party), the Letter of Credit Fees described in clause (x) of this Section 3.2(a) shall be increased by an additional two percent (2.0%) per annum.
 
(b)           At any time following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, at the option of Agent or at the direction of Required Lenders (or, in the case of any Event of Default under Section 10.7, immediately and automatically upon the occurrence of such Event of Default, without the requirement of any affirmative action by any party), or upon the expiration of the Term or any other termination of this Agreement (and also, if applicable, in connection with any mandatory prepayment under Section 2.20), Borrowers will Cash Collateralize all outstanding Letters of Credit, and each Borrower hereby irrevocably authorizes Agent, in its discretion, on such Borrower’s behalf and in such Borrower’s name, to open such an account and to make and maintain deposits therein, or in an account opened by such Borrower, in the amounts required to be made by such Borrower, out of the proceeds of Receivables or other Collateral or out of any other funds of such Borrower coming into any Lender’s possession at any time.  Agent may, in its discretion, invest such Cash Collateral (less applicable reserves) in such short-term money-market items as to which Agent and such Borrower mutually agree (or, in the absence of such agreement, as Agent may reasonably select) and the net return on such investments shall be credited to such account and constitute additional Cash Collateral, or Agent may (notwithstanding the foregoing) establish the account provided for under this Section 3.2(b) as a non-interest bearing account and in such case Agent shall have no obligation (and Borrowers hereby waive any claim) under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code or under any other Applicable Law to pay interest on such Cash Collateral being held by Agent.  No Borrower may withdraw amounts credited to any such account except upon the occurrence of all of the following: (x) payment and performance in full of all Obligations; (y) expiration of all Letters of Credit; and (z) termination of this Agreement.  Borrowers hereby assign, pledge and grant to Agent, for its benefit and the ratable benefit of Issuer, Lenders and each other Secured Party, a continuing security interest in and to and Lien on any such Cash Collateral and any right, title and interest of Borrowers in any deposit account, securities account or investment account into which such Cash Collateral may be deposited from time to time to secure the Obligations, specifically including all Obligations with respect to any Letters of Credit.  Borrowers agree that upon the coming due of any Reimbursement Obligations (or any other Obligations, including Obligations for Letter of Credit Fees) with respect to the Letters of Credit, Agent may use such Cash Collateral to pay and satisfy such Obligations.
 
81

3.3.          Facility Fee.  If, for any calendar quarter during the Term, the Average Daily Unpaid Balance for such calendar quarter does not equal the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount, then MPA shall pay to Agent, for the ratable benefit of Lenders holding the Revolving Commitments based on their Revolving Commitment Percentages, a fee at a rate equal to the rate per annum set forth in the definition of Applicable Facility Fee on the amount by which the Maximum Revolving Advance Amount exceeds such Average Daily Unpaid Balance (the “Facility Fee”).  Such Facility Fee shall be payable to Agent in arrears on the first day of each calendar quarter with respect to the previous calendar quarter.
 
3.4.          Collateral Evaluation Fee and Fee Letter.
 
(a)           Subject to the limitations contained in Sections 4.6 and 4.7 hereof, Borrowers shall pay to Agent promptly at the conclusion of any collateral evaluation performed by or for the benefit of Agent - namely any field examination, collateral analysis or other business analysis, the need for which is to be determined by Agent and which evaluation is undertaken by Agent or for Agent’s benefit - a collateral evaluation fee in an amount equal to $1,500 (or such other amount customarily charged by Agent to its customers) per day for each person employed to perform such evaluation, plus a per examination manager review fee (whether such examination is performed by Agent’s employees or by a third party retained by agent) in the amount of $1,500 (or such other amount customarily charged by Agent to its customers), plus all reasonable costs and disbursements incurred by Agent in the performance of such examination or analysis, and further provided that if third parties are retained to perform such collateral evaluations, either at the request of another Lender or for extenuating reasons determined by Agent in its sole discretion, then such fees charged by such third parties plus all reasonable costs and disbursements incurred by such third party, shall be the responsibility of Borrowers and shall not be subject to the foregoing limits.
 
82

(b)           Borrowers shall pay the amounts required to be paid in the Amendment and Restatement Fee Letter in the manner and at the times required by the Amendment and Restatement Fee Letter.
 
(c)           All of the fees and reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses of any appraisals conducted pursuant to Section 4.7 hereof shall be paid for when due, in full and without deduction, off-set or counterclaim by Borrowers.
 
3.5.          Computation of Interest and Fees.
 
(a)            Interest and fees hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days (or in the case of any Domestic Rate Loan, a year of 365 or 366 days) and for the actual number of days elapsed.  If any payment to be made hereunder becomes due and payable on a day other than a Business Day, the due date thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day and interest thereon shall be payable at the applicable Contract Rate during such extension.
 
(b)           For purposes of the Interest Act (Canada): (i) whenever any interest or fee under this Agreement is calculated on the basis of a period of time other than a calendar year, such rate used in such calculation, when expressed as an annual rate, is equivalent to (x) such rate, multiplied by (y) the actual number of days in the calendar year in which the period for which such interest or fee is calculated ends, and divided by (z) the number of days in such period of time; (ii) the principle of deemed reinvestment of interest shall not apply to any interest calculation under this Agreement; and (iii) the rates of interest stipulated in this Agreement are intended to be nominal rates and not effective rates or yields.  Any rate that is calculated with reference to a period (the “deemed interest period”) that is less than the actual number of days in the calendar year of calculation is, for the purposes of the Interest Act (Canada), equivalent to a rate based on a calendar year calculated by multiplying that rate of interest by the actual number of days in the calendar year of calculation and dividing by the number of days in the deemed interest period.  Each of the parties hereto acknowledge that there is a material distinction between the nominal and effective rates of interest and that they are capable of making the calculations necessary to compare such rates and that the calculations herein are to be made using the nominal rate method and not the basis of effective yearly rates or on any basis that gives effect to the principle of deemed reinvestment of interest.  Each of the Loan Parties confirms that they fully understand and are able to calculate the rate of interest applicable to the loans based on the methodology for calculating per annum rates provided for in this Agreement.  Each of the Loan Parties hereby irrevocably agrees not to plead or assert, whether by way of defense or otherwise, in any proceeding relating to this Agreement or any Other Document, that the interest payable under this Agreement and the calculation thereof has not been adequately disclosed to Loan Parties as required pursuant to Section 4 of the Interest Act (Canada).
 
3.6.          Maximum Charges.
 
(a)           In no event whatsoever shall interest and other charges charged hereunder exceed the highest rate permissible under Applicable Law.  In the event interest and other charges as computed hereunder would otherwise exceed the highest rate permitted under Applicable Law: (i) the interest rates hereunder will be reduced to the maximum rate permitted under Applicable Law; (ii) such excess amount shall be first applied to any unpaid principal balance owed by Borrowers; and (iii) if the then remaining excess amount is greater than the previously unpaid principal balance, Lenders shall promptly refund such excess amount to Borrowers and the provisions hereof shall be deemed amended to provide for such permissible rate.If any provision of this Agreement or Other Documents would oblige any Borrower to make any payment of interest or other amount payable to any Lender in an amount or calculated at a rate which would be prohibited by law or would result in a receipt by that Lender of “interest” at a “criminal rate” (as such terms are construed under the Criminal Code (Canada)), then, notwithstanding such provision, such amount or rate shall be deemed to have been adjusted with retroactive effect to the maximum amount or rate of interest, as the case may be, as would not be so prohibited by Applicable Law or so result in a receipt by that Lender of “interest” at a “criminal rate”, such adjustment to be effected, to the extent necessary (but only to the extent necessary), as follows: first, by reducing the amount or rate of interest, and, thereafter, by reducing any fees, commissions, costs, expenses, premiums and other amounts required to be paid to the affected Lender which would constitute interest for purposes of section 347 of the Criminal Code (Canada).
 
83

3.7.         Increased Costs.  In the event that any Applicable Law or any Change in Law or compliance by any Lender (for purposes of this Section 3.7, the term “Lender” shall include Agent, Swing Loan Lender, any Issuer or Lender and any corporation or bank controlling Agent, Swing Loan Lender, any Lender or Issuer and the office or branch where Agent, Swing Loan Lender, any Lender or Issuer (as so defined) makes or maintains any LIBOR Rate Loans) with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any central bank or other financial, monetary or other authority, shall:
 
(a)           subject Agent, Swing Loan Lender, any Lender or Issuer to any Tax of any kind whatsoever with respect to this Agreement, any Letter of Credit, any participation in a Letter of Credit or any LIBOR Rate Loan, or change the basis of taxation of payments to Agent, Swing Loan Lender, such Lender or Issuer in respect thereof (except for Indemnified Taxes and Excluded Taxes);
 
(b)           impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, assessment, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets held by, or deposits in or for the account of, advances or loans by, or other credit extended by, any office of Agent, Swing Loan Lender, Issuer or any Lender, including pursuant to Regulation D of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System; or
 
(c)           impose on Agent, Swing Loan Lender, any Lender or Issuer or the London interbank LIBOR market any other condition, loss or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or any Other Document or any Advance made by any Lender, or any Letter of Credit or participation therein;
 
and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to Agent, Swing Loan Lender, any Lender or Issuer of making, converting to, continuing, renewing or maintaining its Advances hereunder by an amount that Agent, Swing Loan Lender, such Lender or Issuer deems to be material or to reduce the amount of any payment (whether of principal, interest or otherwise) in respect of any of the Advances by an amount that Agent, Swing Loan Lender or such Lender or Issuer deems to be material, then, in any case Borrowers shall promptly pay Agent, Swing Loan Lender, such Lender or Issuer, upon its demand, such additional amount as will compensate Agent, Swing Loan Lender or such Lender or Issuer for such additional cost or such reduction, as the case may be.  Agent, Swing Loan Lender, such Lender or Issuer shall certify the amount of such additional cost or reduced amount to Borrowing Agent, and such certification shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
 
84

3.8.          Basis For Determining Interest Rate Inadequate or Unfair.  In the event that Agent or any Lender shall have determined that:
 
(a)            reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the LIBOR Rate applicable pursuant to Section 2.2 hereof for any Interest Period; or
 
(b)           Dollar deposits in the relevant amount and for the relevant maturity are not available in the London interbank LIBOR market, with respect to an outstanding LIBOR Rate Loan, a proposed LIBOR Rate Loan, or a proposed conversion of a Domestic Rate Loan into a LIBOR Rate Loan; or
 
(c)           the making, maintenance or funding of any LIBOR Rate Loan has been made impracticable or unlawful by compliance by Agent or such Lender in good faith with any Applicable Law or any interpretation or application thereof by any Governmental Body or with any request or directive of any such Governmental Body (whether or not having the force of law); or
 
(d)           the LIBOR Rate will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lender of the establishment or maintenance of any LIBOR Rate Loan,
 
then Agent shall give Borrowing Agent prompt written or telephonic notice of such determination.  If such notice is given, (i) any such requested LIBOR Rate Loan shall be made as a Domestic Rate Loan, unless Borrowing Agent shall notify Agent no later than 10:00 a.m. 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 LIBOR Rate Loan, (ii) any Domestic Rate Loan or LIBOR Rate Loan which was to have been converted to an affected type of LIBOR Rate Loan shall be continued as or converted into a Domestic Rate Loan, or, if Borrowing Agent shall notify Agent, no later than 10:00 a.m. two (2) Business Days prior to the proposed conversion, shall be maintained as an unaffected type of LIBOR Rate Loan, and (iii) any outstanding affected LIBOR Rate Loans shall be converted into a Domestic Rate Loan, or, if Borrowing Agent shall notify Agent, no later than 10:00 a.m. two (2) Business Days prior to the last Business Day of the then current Interest Period applicable to such affected LIBOR Rate Loan, shall be converted into an unaffected type of LIBOR Rate Loan, on the last Business Day of the then current Interest Period for such affected LIBOR Rate Loans (or sooner, if any Lender cannot continue to lawfully maintain such affected LIBOR Rate Loan).  Until such notice has been withdrawn, Lenders shall have no obligation to make an affected type of LIBOR Rate Loan or maintain outstanding affected LIBOR Rate Loans and no Borrower shall have the right to convert a Domestic Rate Loan or an unaffected type of LIBOR Rate Loan into an affected type of LIBOR Rate Loan.
 
3.9.          Capital Adequacy.
 
(a)           In the event that Agent, Swing Loan Lender or any Lender shall have determined that any Applicable Law or guideline regarding capital adequacy, or any Change in Law or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any Governmental Body, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by Agent, Swing Loan Lender, Issuer or any Lender (for purposes of this Section 3.9, the term “Lender” shall include Agent, Swing Loan Lender, Issuer or any Lender and any corporation or bank controlling Agent, Swing Loan Lender or any Lender and the office or branch where Agent, Swing Loan Lender or any Lender (as so defined) makes or maintains any LIBOR Rate Loans) with any request or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on Agent, Swing Loan Lender or any Lender’s capital as a consequence of its obligations hereunder (including the making of any Swing Loans) to a level below that which Agent, Swing Loan Lender or such Lender could have achieved but for such adoption, change or compliance (taking into consideration Agent’s, Swing Loan Lender’s and each Lender’s policies with respect to capital adequacy) by an amount deemed by Agent, Swing Loan Lender or any Lender to be material, then, from time to time, Borrowers shall pay upon demand to Agent, Swing Loan Lender or such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate Agent, Swing Loan Lender or such Lender for such reduction.  In determining such amount or amounts, Agent, Swing Loan Lender or such Lender may use any reasonable averaging or attribution methods.  The protection of this Section 3.9 shall be available to Agent, Swing Loan Lender and each Lender regardless of any possible contention of invalidity or inapplicability with respect to the Applicable Law, rule, regulation, guideline or condition.
 
85

(b)           A certificate of Agent, Swing Loan Lender or such Lender setting forth such amount or amounts as shall be necessary to compensate Agent, Swing Loan Lender or such Lender with respect to Section 3.9(a) hereof when delivered to Borrowing Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
 
3.10.        Taxes.
 
(a)           Any and all payments by or on account of any Obligations of any Loan Party under any Loan Document shall be made free and clear of and without reduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by Applicable Law. If the applicable Withholding Agent shall be required by Applicable Law to deduct or withhold any Taxes from any such payments (as determined in the good faith discretion of such Withholding Agent), then (i) the applicable Withholding Agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Body in accordance with Applicable Law, and (ii) if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, the sum payable by the applicable Loan Party shall be increased as necessary so that after making such deduction or withholding (including deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 3.10), the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.
 
(b)           Without limiting the provisions of Section 3.10(a) above, the Loan Parties shall timely pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Body in accordance with Applicable Law.
 
(c)           The Loan Parties shall indemnify each Recipient, within ten (10) days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 3.10) paid by such Recipient and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Body.  A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to Borrowing Agent by any Lender (with a copy to Agent), or by Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
 
86

(d)           As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes by a Borrower to a Governmental Body, such Borrower shall deliver to Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Body evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to Agent.

Reg. Section 1.1441-7(b) or other Applicable Law.  Further, Agent is indemnified under Treas. Reg. Section 1.1461-1(e) against any claims and demands of any Lender for the amount of any Tax it deducts and withholds in accordance with regulations under Section 1441 of the Code.  In addition, any Lender, if requested by Borrowing Agent or Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by Applicable Law or reasonably requested by Borrowing Agent or Agent as will enable Borrowing Agent or Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing,
 
(i)            any Lender that is not a U.S. Person shall deliver to Borrowing Agent and Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Borrowing Agent or Agent, but only if such Lender is legally entitled to do so), whichever of the following is applicable:
 
(A)          in the case of such Lender claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Loan Document, two executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Loan Document, two executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;

(D)          to the extent such Lender is not the beneficial owner, two executed originals of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit 3.10(b) or Exhibit 3.10(c), IRS Form W-9 and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that, if the Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit 3.10(d) on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner; or
 
(E)           two executed originals of any other form prescribed by Applicable Law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by Applicable Law to permit Borrowing Agent or Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and
 
(ii)           any Lender that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to Borrowing Agent and Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Borrowing Agent or Agent), two executed originals of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding.  Upon the request of Borrowing Agent, Agent shall provide the Company two executed originals of IRS Form W-9.
 
(iii)          Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify Borrowing Agent and Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.
 
(f)            If a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to Borrowing Agent and Agent at the time or times prescribed by Applicable Law and at such time or times reasonably requested by Borrowing Agent or 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 Borrowing Agent or Agent as may be necessary for Borrowing Agent and Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment.  Solely for purposes of this Section 3.10(f), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.
 
88

(g)           If any Recipient determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Indemnified Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by any Loan Party or with respect to which any Loan Party has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section 3.10, it shall pay to such Loan Party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by such Loan Party under this Section 3.10 with respect to the Indemnified Taxes giving rise to such refund); net of all out-of-pocket expenses of such Recipient, and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Body with respect to such refund), provided that such Loan Party, upon the request of such Recipient, agrees to repay the amount paid over to such Loan Party pursuant to this Section 3.10(g) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Body) to such Recipient in the event such Recipient is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Body.  This Section 3.10(g) shall not be construed to require any Recipient to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to any Loan Party or any other Person.
 
(h)           For purposes of this Section 3.10, the term “Lender” includes Swing Loan Lender and Issuer, and the term “Applicable Law” includes FATCA.

89

3.12.        Successor LIBOR Rate Index.
 
(a)           If Agent determines (which determination shall be final and conclusive, absent manifest error) that either (a) (i) the circumstances set forth in Section 3.8 have arisen and are unlikely to be temporary, or (ii) the circumstances set forth in Section 3.8 have not arisen but the applicable supervisor or administrator (if any) of the LIBOR Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over Agent has made a public statement identifying the specific date after which the LIBOR Rate shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans (either such date, a “LIBOR Termination Date”), or (b) a rate other than the LIBOR Rate has become a widely recognized benchmark rate for newly originated loans in Dollars in the U.S. market, then Agent may (in consultation with Borrowing Agent) choose a replacement index for the LIBOR Rate and make adjustments to applicable margins and related amendments to this Agreement as referred to below such that, to the extent practicable, the all-in interest rate based on the replacement index will be substantially equivalent to the all-in LIBOR Rate-based interest rate in effect prior to its replacement.
 
(b)           Agent and Borrowing Agent shall enter into an amendment to this Agreement to reflect the replacement index, the adjusted margins and such other related amendments as may be appropriate, in the discretion of Agent, for the implementation and administration of the replacement index-based rate.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or the Other Documents (including, without limitation, Section 3.8), such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the tenth (10th) Business Day after the date a draft of the amendment is provided to the Lenders, unless Agent receives, on or before such tenth (10th) Business Day, a written notice from the Required Lenders stating that such Lenders object to such amendment.
 
(c)           Selection of the replacement index, adjustments to the applicable margins, and amendments to this Agreement (i) will be determined with due consideration to the then-current market practices for determining and implementing a rate of interest for newly originated loans in the United States and loans converted from a LIBOR Rate-based rate to a replacement index-based rate, and (ii) may also reflect adjustments to account for (x) the effects of the transition from the LIBOR Rate to the replacement index and (y) yield- or risk-based differences between the LIBOR Rate and the replacement index.
 
(d)           Until an amendment reflecting a new replacement index in accordance with this Section 3.8 is effective, each advance, conversion and renewal of a LIBOR Rate Loan will continue to bear interest with reference to the LIBOR Rate; provided however, that if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be final and conclusive, absent manifest error) that a LIBOR Termination Date has occurred, then following the LIBOR Termination Date, all Loans as to which the LIBOR Rate would otherwise apply shall automatically be converted to the a Domestic Rate Loan until such time as an amendment reflecting a replacement index and related matters as described above is implemented.
 
90

(e)           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if at any time the replacement index is less than zero, at such times, such index shall be deemed to be zero for purposes of this Agreement.
 
3.13.        Currency Indemnity.  If, for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court in any jurisdiction with respect to this Agreement or any Other Document, it becomes necessary to convert into a particular currency (the “Judgment Currency”) any amount due under this Agreement or under any Other Document in any currency other than the Judgment Currency (the “Currency Due”), then conversion shall be made at the rate of exchange prevailing on the Business Day before the day on which judgment is given.  For this purpose “rate of exchange” means the rate at which the Agent is able, on the relevant date, to purchase the Currency Due with the Judgment Currency in accordance with its normal practices.  In the event that there is a change in the rate of exchange prevailing between the Business Day before the day on which the judgment is given and the date of receipt by the Agent of the amount due, Borrowers will, on the date of receipt by the Agent, pay such additional amounts, if any, or be entitled to receive reimbursement of such amount, if any, as may be necessary to ensure that the amount received by the Agent on such date is the amount in the Judgment Currency which when converted at the rate of exchange prevailing on the date of receipt by the Agent is the amount then due under this Agreement or such Other Document in the Currency Due.  If the amount of the Currency Due which the Agent is so able to purchase is less than the amount of the Currency Due originally due to it, the Loan Parties shall indemnify and save the Agent and the Lenders harmless from and against all loss or damage arising as a result of such deficiency.  This indemnity shall constitute an obligation separate and independent from the other obligations contained in this Agreement and the Other Documents, shall give rise to a separate and independent cause of action, shall apply irrespective of any indulgence granted by the Agent from time to time and shall continue in full force and effect notwithstanding any judgment or order for a liquidated sum in respect of an amount due under this Agreement or any Other Document or under any judgment or order

LENDERS’ RIGHTS AND REMEDIES AFTER DEFAULT.

11.1.        Rights and Remedies.

(a)           Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of: (i) an Event of Default pursuant to Section 10.7 (other than Section 10.7(vii)), all Obligations shall be immediately due and payable and this Agreement and the obligation of Lenders to make Advances shall be deemed terminated, (ii) any of the other Events of Default and at any time thereafter, at the option of Agent or at the direction of Required Lenders all Obligations shall be immediately due and payable and Agent or Required Lenders shall have the right to terminate this Agreement and to terminate the obligation of Lenders to make Advances; and (iii) without limiting Section 8.2 hereof, any Default under Sections 10.7(vii) hereof, the obligation of Lenders to make Advances hereunder shall be suspended until such time as such involuntary petition shall be dismissed.  Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, Agent shall have the right to exercise any and all rights and remedies provided for herein, under the Other Documents, under the Uniform Commercial Code, PPSA and at law or equity generally, including the right to foreclose the security interests granted herein and to realize upon any Collateral by any available judicial procedure and/or to take possession of and sell any or all of the Collateral with or without judicial process.  Agent may enter any of any Loan Party’s premises or other premises without legal process and without incurring liability to any Loan Party therefor, and Agent may thereupon, or at any time thereafter, in its discretion without notice or demand, take the Collateral and remove the same to such place as Agent may deem advisable and Agent may require Loan Parties to make the Collateral available to Agent at a convenient place.  With or without having the Collateral at the time or place of sale, Agent may sell the Collateral, or any part thereof, at public or private sale, at any time or place, in one or more sales, at such price or prices, and upon such terms, either for cash, credit or future delivery, as Agent may elect.  Except as to that part of the Collateral which is perishable or threatens to decline speedily in value or is of a type customarily sold on a recognized market, Agent shall give Loan Parties reasonable notification of such sale or sales, it being agreed that in all events written notice mailed to Borrowing Agent at least ten (10) days prior to such sale or sales is reasonable notification.  At any public sale Agent or any Lender may bid (including credit bid) for and become the purchaser, and Agent, any Lender or any other purchaser at any such sale thereafter shall hold the Collateral sold absolutely free from any claim or right of whatsoever kind, including any equity of redemption and all such claims, rights and equities are hereby expressly waived and released by each Loan Party.  In connection with the exercise of the foregoing remedies, including the sale of Inventory, Agent is granted a perpetual nonrevocable, royalty free, nonexclusive license and Agent is granted permission to use all of each Loan Party’s (a) Intellectual Property which is used or useful in connection with Inventory for the purpose of marketing, advertising for sale and selling or otherwise disposing of such Inventory and (b) equipment for the purpose of completing the manufacture of unfinished goods.  The cash proceeds realized from the sale of any Collateral shall be applied to the Obligations in the order set forth in Section 11.5 hereof.  Noncash proceeds will only be applied to the Obligations as they are converted into cash.  If any deficiency shall arise, the Loan Parties shall remain liable to Agent and Lenders therefor.
 
131

(b)           To the extent that Applicable Law imposes duties on Agent to exercise remedies in a commercially reasonable manner, each Loan Party acknowledges and agrees that after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default it is not commercially unreasonable for Agent: (i) to fail to incur expenses reasonably deemed significant by Agent to prepare Collateral for disposition or otherwise to complete raw material or work in process into finished goods or other finished products for disposition; (ii) to fail to obtain third party consents for access to Collateral to be disposed of, or to obtain or, if not required by other law, to fail to obtain governmental or third party consents for the collection or disposition of Collateral to be collected or disposed of; (iii) to fail to exercise collection remedies against Customers or other Persons obligated on Collateral or to remove Liens on or any adverse claims against Collateral; (iv) to exercise collection remedies against Customers and other Persons obligated on Collateral directly or through the use of collection agencies and other collection specialists; (v) to advertise dispositions of Collateral through publications or media of general circulation, whether or not the Collateral is of a specialized nature; (vi) to contact other Persons, whether or not in the same business as any Loan Party, for expressions of interest in acquiring all or any portion of such Collateral; (vii) to hire one or more professional auctioneers to assist in the disposition of Collateral, whether or not the Collateral is of a specialized nature; (viii) to dispose of Collateral by utilizing internet sites that provide for the auction of assets of the types included in the Collateral or that have the reasonable capacity of doing so, or that match buyers and sellers of assets; (ix) to dispose of assets in wholesale rather than retail markets; (x) to disclaim disposition warranties, such as title, possession or quiet enjoyment, (xi) to purchase insurance or credit enhancements to insure Agent against risks of loss, collection or disposition of Collateral or to provide to Agent a guaranteed return from the collection or disposition of Collateral; or (xii) to the extent deemed appropriate by Agent, to obtain the services of other brokers, investment bankers, consultants and other professionals to assist Agent in the collection or disposition of any of the Collateral.  Each Loan Party acknowledges that the purpose of this Section 11.1(b) is to provide non-exhaustive indications of what actions or omissions by Agent would not be commercially unreasonable in Agent’s exercise of remedies against the Collateral and that other actions or omissions by Agent shall not be deemed commercially unreasonable solely on account of not being indicated in this Section 11.1(b).  Without limitation upon the foregoing, nothing contained in this Section 11.1(b) shall be construed to grant any rights to any Loan Party or to impose any duties on Agent that would not have been granted or imposed by this Agreement or by Applicable Law in the absence of this Section 11.1(b).
 
132

(c)           Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Agent may seek the appointment of a receiver, receiver-manager or keeper (a “Receiver”) under the laws of Canada or any province thereof to take possession of all or any portion of the Collateral of the Canadian Loan Parties or to operate same and, to the maximum extent permitted by law, may seek the appointment of such a receiver without the requirement of prior notice or a hearing.  Any such Receiver shall, so far as concerns responsibility for his/her acts, be deemed agent of the Canadian Loan Parties and not Agent and the Lenders, and Agent and the Lenders shall not be in any way responsible for any misconduct, negligence or non-feasance on the part of any such Receiver, his/her servants or employees.  Subject to the provisions of the instrument appointing him/her, any such Receiver shall have power to take possession of Collateral of the Canadian Loan Parties, to preserve Collateral of the Canadian Loan Parties or its value, to carry on or concur in carrying on all or any part of the business of the Canadian Loan Parties and to sell, lease, license or otherwise dispose of or concur in selling, leasing, licensing or otherwise disposing of Collateral of the Canadian Loan Parties.  To facilitate the foregoing powers, any such Receiver may, to the exclusion of all others, including the Canadian Loan Parties, enter upon, use and occupy all premises owned or occupied by the Canadian Loan Parties wherein Collateral of the Canadian Loan Parties may be situated, maintain Collateral of the Canadian Loan Parties upon such premises, borrow money on a secured or unsecured basis and use Collateral of the Canadian Loan Parties directly in carrying on the Canadian Loan Parties’ business or as security for loans or advances to enable the Receiver to carry on the Canadian Loan Parties’ business or otherwise, as such Receiver shall, in its discretion, determine.  Except as may be otherwise directed by Agent, all money received from time to time by such Receiver in carrying out his/her appointment shall be received in trust for and paid over to Agent.  Every such Receiver may, in the discretion of Agent, be vested with all or any of the rights and powers of Agent and the Lenders.  Agent may, either directly or through its nominees, exercise any or all powers and rights given to a Receiver by virtue of the foregoing provisions of this paragraph.

11.2.        Agent’s Discretion.  Agent shall have the right in its sole discretion to determine which rights, Liens, security interests or remedies Agent may at any time pursue, relinquish, subordinate, or modify, which procedures, timing and methodologies to employ, and what any other action to take with respect to any or all of the Collateral and in what order, thereto and such determination will not in any way modify or affect any of Agent’s or Lenders’ rights hereunder as against Loan Parties or each other.

11.3.        Setoff.  Subject to Section 14.13, in addition to any other rights which Agent or any Lender may have under Applicable Law, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default hereunder, Agent and such Lender shall have a right, immediately and without notice of any kind, to apply any Loan Party’s property held by Agent and such Lender or any of their Affiliates to reduce the Obligations and to exercise any and all rights of setoff which may be available to Agent and such Lender with respect to any deposits held by Agent or such Lender.

11.4.        Rights and Remedies not Exclusive.  The enumeration of the foregoing rights and remedies is not intended to be exhaustive and the exercise of any rights or remedy shall not preclude the exercise of any other right or remedies provided for herein or otherwise provided by law, all of which shall be cumulative and not alternative.
 
133

XIII.
EFFECTIVE DATE AND TERMINATION.

13.1.        Term.  This Agreement, which shall inure to the benefit of and shall be binding upon the respective successors and permitted assigns of each Loan Party, Agent and each Lender, shall become effective on the date hereof and shall continue in full force and effect until June 5, 2023 (the “Term”) unless sooner terminated as herein provided.  The Loan Parties may terminate this Agreement at any time upon fifteen (15) Business Days prior written notice (or such shorter period as the Agent may agree to in writing) to Agent upon payment in full of the Obligations; provided that a notice of termination delivered by Borrowing Agent hereunder may state that such notice is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities or the closing of another transaction, the proceeds of which will be used to prepay any outstanding Advances, in which case such termination may be conditional upon the effectiveness of such other credit facilities or the closing of such other transaction (any such conditional notice of termination, a “Conditional Notice”); provided, however, that Borrowing Agent may not deliver a Conditional Notice hereunder more than twice in any fiscal quarter.

13.2.        Termination.  The termination of the Agreement shall not affect Agent’s or any Lender’s rights, or any of the Obligations having their inception prior to the effective date of such termination or any Obligations which pursuant to the terms hereof continue to accrue after such date, and the provisions hereof shall continue to be fully operative until all transactions entered into, rights or interests created and Obligations have been fully paid, disposed of, concluded or liquidated.  The security interests, Liens and rights granted to Agent and Lenders hereunder and the financing statements filed hereunder shall continue in full force and effect, notwithstanding the termination of this Agreement or the fact that US Borrowers’ Account or Canadian Borrowers’ Account may from time to time be temporarily in a zero or credit position, until all of the Obligations of each Loan Party have been paid and performed in full after the termination of this Agreement or each Loan Party has furnished Agent and Lenders with an indemnification satisfactory to Agent and Lenders with respect thereto.  Accordingly, each Loan Party waives any rights which it may have under the Uniform Commercial Code or PPSA to demand the filing of termination statements with respect to the Collateral, and Agent shall not be required to send such termination statements to each Loan Party, or to file them with any filing office, unless and until this Agreement shall have been terminated in accordance with its terms and all Obligations have been paid in full in immediately available funds.  All representations, warranties, covenants, waivers and agreements contained herein shall survive termination hereof until all Obligations are paid and performed in full.

13.3.        Collateral and Guaranty Matters.  Each of the Lenders (including in their capacities as holders of any Cash Management Liabilities and Hedge Liabilities) and the Issuer irrevocably authorize the Agent, at its option and in its discretion:
 
137

(a)           to release any Lien on any property granted to or held by the Agent under any Loan Document (i) upon termination of the Commitments and payment in full of all Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations for which no claim has been made and other than any Cash Management Liabilities and Hedge Liabilities as to which arrangements satisfactory to the applicable Lender shall have been made) and the expiration or termination of all Letters of Credit (other than Letters of Credit as to which other arrangements satisfactory to the Agent and the LC Issuer shall have been made), (ii) that is sold or to be sold as part of or in connection with any sale permitted under any Loan Document, or (iii) if approved, authorized or ratified in writing in accordance with Section 16.2;

(b)           to release any Guarantor from its obligations under the Guaranty if such Person ceases to be a Subsidiary as a result of a transaction permitted hereunder; and

(c)           to subordinate any Lien on any property granted to or held by the Agent under any Loan Document to the holder of any Lien on such property that is a Permitted Encumbrance.

Upon request by the Agent at any time, the Required Lenders will confirm in writing the Agent’s authority to release or subordinate its interest in particular types or items of property, or to release any Guarantor from its obligations under the Guaranty pursuant to this Section 13.3.  In each case as specified in this Section 13.3, the Agent will, at Borrowers’ expense, execute and deliver to the applicable Loan Party such documents as such Loan Party may reasonably request to evidence the release of such item of Collateral from the assignment and security interest granted under the Loan Documents or to subordinate its interest in such item, or to release such Guarantor from its obligations under the Guaranty, in each case in accordance with the terms of the Loan Documents and this Section 13.3.

The Agent shall not be responsible for or have a duty to ascertain or inquire into any representation or warranty regarding the existence, value or collectability of the Collateral, the existence, priority or perfection of the Agent’s Lien, or any certificate prepared by any Loan Party in connection therewith, nor shall the Administrative Agent be responsible or liable to the Lenders for any failure to monitor or maintain any portion of the Collateral.

XIV.
REGARDING AGENT.

14.1.        Appointment.  Each Lender hereby designates PNC to act as Agent for such Lender under the Loan Documents.  Each Lender hereby irrevocably authorizes Agent to take such action on its behalf under the provisions of this Agreement and the Other Documents and to exercise such powers and to perform such duties hereunder and thereunder as are specifically delegated to or required of Agent by the terms hereof and thereof and such other powers as are reasonably incidental thereto and Agent shall hold all Collateral, payments of principal and interest, fees (except the fees set forth in Sections 2.8(b), 3.3 and 3.4 and the Fee Letter), charges and collections received pursuant to this Agreement, for the ratable benefit of Lenders.  Agent may perform any of its duties hereunder by or through its agents or employees.  As to any matters not expressly provided for by this Agreement (including collection of the Note) Agent shall not be required to exercise any discretion or take any action, but shall be required to act or to refrain from acting (and shall be fully protected in so acting or refraining from acting) upon the instructions of Required Lenders, and such instructions shall be binding; provided, however, that Agent shall not be required to take any action which, in Agent’s discretion, exposes Agent to liability or which is contrary to this Agreement or the Other Documents or Applicable Law unless Agent is furnished with an indemnification reasonably satisfactory to Agent with respect thereto.
