SECTION 2COMMITMENTS OF THE LENDERS; BORROWING, CONVERSION AND LETTER OF CREDIT PROCEDURES.

2.1    Commitments. On and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each of the Lenders, severally and for itself alone, agrees to make loans to, and to issue or participate in Letters of Credit and to make or participate in Swing Line Loans for the account of, the Company as follows:

2.1.1    Commitment. Each Lender with a Commitment severally agrees to make loans in U.S. Dollars or in one or more Alternative Currencies on a revolving basis (“Revolving Loans”) on and after the 2019 Restatement Effective Date from time to time until the Termination Date in an amount equal to such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of such aggregate amounts as the Company may request from all Lenders; provided that (i) the Revolving Outstandings will not at any time exceed the Revolving Loan Availability, (ii) the Revolving Exposure of any Lender will not at any time exceed its Commitment and (iii) the U.S. Dollar Equivalent of Revolving Loans denominated in Alternative Currencies will not at any time exceed $500,000,000 (the “Alternative Currency Sublimit”).

2.1.2    Increase in Commitment.

(a)The Company may, at its option any time after the 2019 Restatement Effective Date and before the Termination Date, seek to (i) increase the Commitments (any such increase, a “Commitment Increase”) or (ii) establish one or more new term loan commitments (“Term Loan Commitments” and, together with any Commitment Increase, the “Incremental Commitments”)





of an existing tranche of term loans or a separate tranche of new term loans (any such term loans, the “Incremental Term Loans”) upon written notice to the Administrative Agent; provided that, subject to the calculation adjustments set forth in Section 1.3 with respect to any Incremental Term Loans being incurred in connection with a Limited Condition Transaction, the aggregate principal amount of all Incremental Commitments shall not exceed the greater of (x) $500,000,000 and (y) such other amount such that after giving pro forma effect to the incurrence of such Incremental Commitments and the use of proceeds thereof (assuming that all amounts thereunder are drawn in full but without netting any of the proceeds thereof) the Total Debt to EBITDA Ratio would not exceed 3.50 to 1.00.

(b)Any such notice delivered to the Administrative Agent in connection with a Commitment Increase shall be delivered at a time when no Unmatured Event of Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and shall specify (i) the amount of such Commitment Increase (which shall not be less than $10,000,000 or, if less, the maximum amount of Incremental Commitments remaining to be established hereunder) sought by the Company, (ii) the date (each, an “Increased Amount Date”) on which the Company proposes that such Commitment Increase shall be effective, which shall be a date not less than ten Business Days after the date on which such notice is delivered to the Administrative Agent (unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion) and (iii) the identity of each Incremental Lender to whom the Company proposes any portion of such Commitment Increase be allocated and the amounts of such allocations. The Administrative Agent, subject to the consent of the Company, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, may allocate the Commitment Increase (which may be declined by any Lender (including in its sole discretion)) on either a ratable basis to the Lenders or on a non pro-rata basis to one or more Lenders and/or to other Eligible Assignees reasonably acceptable to each of the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Lender, the Swing Line Lender and the Company which have expressed a desire to accept the Commitment Increase. The Administrative Agent will then notify each existing Lender and Incremental Lender of such revised allocations of the Commitments, including the desired increase. No Commitment Increase shall become effective until each of the Incremental Lenders extending such Commitment Increase and the Company shall have delivered to the Administrative Agent a document in form reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent pursuant to which any such Incremental Lender states the amount of its Commitment Increase and agrees to assume and accept the obligations and rights of a Lender hereunder, and the Company accepts such new Commitments.

(c)Any such notice delivered to the Administrative Agent in connection with Term Loan Commitments shall be delivered at a time when no Unmatured Event of Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and shall specify (i) the amount of such Term Loan Commitments (which shall not be less than $25,000,000 or, if less, the maximum amount of Incremental Commitments remaining to be established hereunder) sought by the Company, (ii) the Increased Amount Date, which shall be a date not less than ten Business Days after the date on which such notice is delivered to the Administrative Agent (unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion) and (iii) the identity of each Incremental Lender. Each Incremental Lender, if not already a Lender hereunder, shall be an Eligible Assignee and reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and no Lender shall be required to participate in any Incremental Term Loans. On or after such Increased Amount Date, the Company, the Administrative Agent and one or more Incremental Lenders may, and without the consent of any other Lender, amend this Agreement pursuant to an amendment agreement (an “Incremental Term Loan Amendment”) setting forth, to the extent applicable, the following terms of such Incremental Term Loans: (A) whether such Incremental Term Loans will be part of an existing tranche of Incremental Term Loans or part of a new and separate tranche, (B) the maturity or termination date applicable to the Incremental Term Loans or Term Loan Commitments of such tranche, (C) any amortization applicable to the Incremental Term Loans of such tranche, (D) the interest rate or rates applicable to the Incremental Term Loans of such tranche, (E) the fees applicable to the Incremental Term Loans or Term Loan Commitments of such tranche, (F) any original issue discount applicable to Incremental Term Loans or Term Loan Commitments of such tranche, (G) the initial Interest Period or Interest Periods applicable to Incremental Term Loans or Term Loan Commitments of such tranche and (H) any voluntary or mandatory prepayment requirements or Term Loan Commitment reductions applicable to Incremental Term Loans or Term Loan Commitments of such tranche and any restrictions on the voluntary or mandatory prepayment or reduction of Incremental Term Loans





or Term Loan Commitments of tranches established after such tranche (it being understood that any such mandatory prepayments may be applied to Term Loans prior to being applied to any Revolving Loans), and implementing such additional amendments to this Agreement as shall be appropriate to give effect to the foregoing terms and to provide the rights and benefits of this Agreement and other Loan Documents to the Incremental Term Loans of such tranche, and such amendment will be effective to amend this Agreement and the other Loan Documents on the terms set forth therein without the consent of any other Lender or the Swing Line Lender. Except as contemplated by the preceding sentence, the terms of any Incremental Term Loans established under this Section shall be the same as those of the Incremental Term Loans existing at the time such new Incremental Term Loans were made. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (1) except as provided in clauses (A) through (H) above, no Incremental Term Loan Amendment shall alter the rights of any Lender (other than the Incremental Lenders) in a manner that would not be permitted under Section 15.1 without the consent of such Lender unless such consent shall have been obtained and (2) no Incremental Term Loans shall (A) have a maturity date earlier than the Latest Maturity Date without the prior written consent of Lenders holding a majority of the principal amount of the Commitments or the Incremental Term Loans of any tranche maturing prior to such date, (B) have scheduled amortization of more than 5% of the original principal amount of such Incremental Term Loan per annum or (C) have mandatory prepayment terms other than customary mandatory prepayments from proceeds of assets sales and casualty events (with customary reinvestment rights), the incurrence of Debt not otherwise permitted hereunder and annual excess cash flow. The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender as to the effectiveness of each Incremental Term Loan Amendment.

(d)Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Incremental Commitments or Incremental Term Loans shall be made or established, and no Incremental Term Loan Amendment shall become effective, unless (i) no Unmatured Event of Default or Event of Default shall exist on such Increased Amount Date before or after giving effect to such Incremental Commitments or Incremental Term Loans (except in the case that the proceeds of any Incremental Term Loans are being used to finance a Limited Condition Transaction, in which case the standard will be no Event of Default or Unmatured Event of Default on the LCT Test Date and no Event of Default under Sections 13.1(a) or 13.1(c) at the time of the consummation of such Limited Condition Transaction); (ii) all other fees and expenses owing in respect of such increase to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders will have been paid; (iii) the Company shall be in pro forma compliance with each of the covenants set forth in Section 11.12 (giving effect, if applicable, to the provisos thereto) as of the last day of the most recently ended Fiscal Quarter (or, in the case that the proceeds of any Incremental Term Loan are being used to finance a Limited Condition Transaction, as of the last day of the most recently ended Fiscal Quarter prior to the applicable LCT Test Date) after giving effect to such Commitment Increase or Incremental Term Loans and other customary and appropriate pro forma adjustment events, including any Acquisitions or dispositions after the beginning of the relevant determination period but prior to or simultaneous with the borrowing of such Incremental Commitments or Incremental Term Loans, as the case may be, and provided that for purposes of calculating the Total Debt to EBITDA Ratio, any Commitment Increases that are drawn substantially simultaneous with the effectiveness of such Commitment Increase shall be given pro forma effect; and (iv) the Company shall deliver or cause to be delivered any legal opinions or other documents reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent in connection with any such transaction.

(e)Upon the making of any Incremental Term Loan or the effectiveness of any Incremental Commitment of any Incremental Lender that is not already a Lender pursuant to this Section, such Incremental Lender shall be deemed to be a “Lender” (and a Lender in respect of Loans of the applicable facility or tranche) hereunder, and henceforth shall be entitled to all the rights of, and benefits accruing to, Lenders (or Lenders in respect of the applicable facility or tranche) hereunder and shall be bound by all agreements, acknowledgements and other obligations of Lenders (or Lenders in respect of the applicable facility or tranche) hereunder. After giving effect to any Commitment Increase, all Loans and all such other credit exposure shall be held ratably by the Lenders in proportion to their respective Commitments, as revised to reflect the increase in the Commitments. The terms of any such Commitment Increase and the extensions of credit made pursuant thereto shall be identical to those of the other Commitments and the extensions of credit made pursuant thereto. Each Commitment Increase shall be deemed for all purposes a Commitment and each Loan made thereunder (an “Incremental Revolving Loan”) shall be deemed, for all





purposes, a Revolving Loan. The Administrative Agent may elect or decline to arrange the increase in Commitment sought by the Company but is under no obligation to arrange or consummate any such increase. The Company will cooperate with the Administrative Agent in such efforts.

2.1.3    L/C Commitment. Subject to Section 2.3.1, each Issuing Lender agrees to issue Letters of Credit, in each case containing such terms and conditions as are permitted by this Agreement and are reasonably satisfactory to the applicable Issuing Lender, at the request of and for the account of the Company from time to time on and after the 2019 Restatement Effective Date and before the scheduled Termination Date and, as more fully set forth in Section 2.3.2, each Lender agrees to purchase a participation in each such Letter of Credit; provided that (a) the aggregate Stated Amount of all Letters of Credit shall not at any time exceed $300,000,000, (b) the aggregate Stated Amount of all Letters of Credit outstanding with respect to any Issuing Lender shall not exceed such Issuing Lender’s Letter of Credit Sublimit, (c) the Revolving Outstandings shall not at any time exceed Revolving Loan Availability, (d) the Revolving Exposure of any Lender shall not at any time exceed its Commitment, (e) each Letter of Credit shall be denominated in U.S. Dollars or an Alternative Currency, (f) the stated amount of each Letter of Credit shall not be less than the applicable Borrowing Minimum or a higher integral multiple of the applicable Borrowing Multiple or such lesser amount as is acceptable to the applicable Issuing Lender and (g) in no event shall any Letter of Credit have an expiration date later than the earlier of (1) five Business Days prior to the Termination Date and (2) the date which is one year from the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit; provided any Letter of Credit may provide for renewal thereof for additional periods of up to 12 months (which in no event shall extend beyond the date referred to in clause (1) above unless such Letter of Credit is Cash Collateralized or backstopped pursuant to arrangements reasonably acceptable to the relevant Issuing Lender, it being understood that if an Issuing Lender issues a Letter of Credit that extends beyond the date referred to in clause (1) above, each Lender’s participation in such Letter of Credit will end on the Termination Date). In the event there is a Defaulting Lender, no Issuing Lender shall be required to issue, renew or extend any Letter of Credit to the extent (x) the Defaulting Lender’s Pro Rata Share of Letter of Credit Commitment may not be reallocated pursuant to Section 2.6(b) or (y) such Issuing Lender has not otherwise entered into arrangements satisfactory to it and the Company to eliminate such Issuing Lender’s risk with respect to the participation in Letters of Credit of the Defaulting Lender, including by Cash Collateralizing such Defaulting Lender’s Pro Rata Share of the Letter of Credit Usage. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company and its Subsidiaries may obtain Outside Letters of Credit; provided that the aggregate outstanding amount of such Outside Letters of Credit does not exceed the Outside Letter of Credit Limitation.

2.1.4    Swing Line Loan Commitments. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof the Swing Line Lender agrees to make Swing Line Loans in U.S. Dollars to the Company on and after the Restatement Effective Date in an aggregate amount up to but not exceeding the Swing Line Sublimit; provided, that after giving effect to the making of any Swing Line Loan, in no event shall (x) the Revolving Outstandings exceed the Revolving Loan Availability then in effect or (y) the Revolving Exposure of any Lender exceed its Commitment; provided, further, that the Swing Line Lender shall not be obligated to make any Swing Line Loans (a) after the occurrence and during the continuation of an Unmatured Event of Default or Event of Default, (b) if it does not in good faith believe that all conditions under Section 12.3 to the making of such Swing Line Loan have been satisfied or waived by the Required Lenders or (c) if any of the Lenders is a Defaulting Lender but, in the case of this clause (c) only to the extent that the Defaulting Lender’s participation in such Swing Line Loan may not be reallocated pursuant to Section 2.6(b) and other arrangements satisfactory to it and the Company to eliminate such Swing Line Lender’s risk with respect to the Defaulting Lender’s participation in such Swing Line Loan (including Cash Collateralization by the Company of such Defaulting Lender’s pro rata share of the outstanding Swing Line Loans) have not been entered into. Amounts borrowed pursuant to this Section 2.1.4 may be repaid and reborrowed until the Termination Date. The Swing Line Lender’s Commitment shall expire on the Termination Date and all Swing Line Loans and all other amounts owed hereunder with respect to the Swing Line Loans and the Commitments shall be paid in full no later than such date.
    
2.2    Revolving Loan Procedures.

2.2.1    Various Types of Revolving Loans. Each Revolving Loan shall be made as part of a Borrowing consisting of Revolving Loans of the same Type and currency, as the Company shall specify in the related notice of borrowing or conversion pursuant to Section 2.2.2 or 2.2.3. Subject to Sections 8.2 and 8.3, (i) each Borrowing denominated in U.S. Dollars (other than a Swing Line Loan) shall be comprised entirely of (A) LIBOR Loans or (B) Base Rate Loans, (ii) each Borrowing denominated in any Alternative Currency

All Borrowings, conversions and repayments of Revolving Loans shall be effected so that each Lender will have a ratable share (according to its Pro Rata Share) of all Types and Borrowings of Loans.

2.2.2    Borrowing Procedures. The Company shall give written notice (each such written notice, a “Notice of Borrowing”) substantially in the form of Exhibit D to the Administrative Agent of each proposed Borrowing not later than (a) in the case of a Base Rate Borrowing, 12:00 P.M., Local Time, on the proposed date of the making of a Loan, (b) in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing denominated in U.S. Dollars, 12:00 P.M., Local Time, at least three Business Days prior to such proposed date and (c) in the case of any Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency, 12:00 P.M., Local Time, at least four Business Days prior to such proposed date.

If no election as to the currency of a Borrowing is specified, then the requested Borrowing shall be denominated in U.S. Dollars. If no election as to the Type of Borrowing is specified, then the requested Borrowing shall be a Base Rate Borrowing if denominated in U.S. Dollars, a EURIBOR Borrowing if denominated in Euros, a CDOR Borrowing if denominated in Canadian Dollars, a BBR Borrowing if denominated in Australian Dollars or a LIBOR Borrowing if denominated in an Alternative Currency other than Euro, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars.

Promptly upon receipt of such notice, the Administrative Agent shall advise each Lender thereof. Not later than 2:00 P.M., New York City time, on the proposed date of the making of a Loan, each Lender shall provide the Administrative Agent at the Principal Office specified by the Administrative Agent with immediately available funds covering such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of such Borrowing in the applicable currency and, so long as the Administrative Agent has not received written notice that the conditions precedent set forth in Section 12 with respect to such Borrowing have not been satisfied, the Administrative Agent shall pay over the funds received by the Administrative Agent to the Company on such requested date. Each Borrowing shall be on a Business Day. Each Borrowing shall be in an aggregate principal amount of at least the applicable Borrowing Minimum and an integral multiple of at least the applicable Borrowing Multiple.

2.2.3    Conversion and Continuation Procedures.

(a)    Subject to Section 2.2.1, the Company may, upon irrevocable written notice to the Administrative Agent in accordance with clause (b) below:

(i)elect, as of any Business Day, to convert any Revolving Loans denominated in U.S. Dollars (or any part thereof in an aggregate amount not less than the applicable Borrowing Minimum or a higher integral multiple equal to the applicable Borrowing Multiple) into Loans of another Type denominated in U.S. Dollars; provided that a LIBOR Loan may only be converted on the expiration of the Interest Period applicable to such LIBOR Loan unless the Company shall pay all amounts due hereunder in connection with any such conversion; or

(ii)elect, as of the last day of the applicable Interest Period, to continue any LIBOR, EURIBOR, CDOR or BBR Loans having Interest Periods expiring on such day (or any part thereof in an aggregate amount not less than the applicable Borrowing Minimum or a higher integral multiple equal to the applicable Borrowing Multiple) for a new Interest Period; provided that if an Unmatured Event of Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing at the end of any Interest Period, (A) no outstanding Borrowing





denominated in U.S. Dollars may be converted to or continued as a LIBOR Borrowing, (B) unless repaid, each LIBOR Borrowing denominated in U.S. Dollars shall be converted to a Base Rate Borrowing at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto and (C) unless repaid, each LIBOR, EURIBOR, CDOR and BBR Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency shall be continued as a LIBOR, EURIBOR, CDOR or BBR Borrowing, as applicable, with an Interest Period of one month’s duration.

(b)    The Company shall give written notice (each such written notice, a “Notice of Conversion/Continuation”) substantially in the form of Exhibit E to the Administrative Agent of each proposed conversion or continuation not later than (i) in the case of conversion into Base Rate Loans, 12:00 P.M., Local Time, three Business Days prior to the proposed date of such conversion, (ii) in the case of conversion into or continuation of LIBOR Loans denominated in U.S. Dollars, 12:00 P.M., Local Time, at least three Business Days prior to the proposed date of such conversion or continuation and (iii) in the case of continuation of Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency, 12:00 P.M., Local Time, at least four Business Days prior to the proposed date of such conversion or continuation, specifying in each case:

(i)    the proposed date of conversion or continuation;

(ii)    the aggregate amount of Loans to be converted or continued;

(iii)    the Type of Revolving Loans resulting from the proposed conversion or continuation; and

(iv)    in the case of conversion into LIBOR Loans, or continuation of LIBOR, EURIBOR, CDOR or BBR Loans, the duration of the requested Interest Period therefor.

(c)    If upon the expiration of any Interest Period applicable to LIBOR Loans denominated in U.S. Dollars, the Company has failed to timely select a new Interest Period to be applicable to such LIBOR Loans, the Company shall be deemed to have elected to convert such LIBOR Loans into Base Rate Loans effective on the last day of such Interest Period. If upon the expiration of any Interest Period applicable to LIBOR, EURIBOR, CDOR or BBR Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency the Company has failed to timely select a new Interest Period to be applicable to such LIBOR, EURIBOR, CDOR or BBR Loans, such Loans shall be continued as LIBOR, EURIBOR, CDOR or BBR Loans, as applicable, in their original currency with an Interest Period of one month. Other than pursuant to Section 8.3, no Revolving Loans may be converted into or continued as Revolving Loans denominated in a different currency, but instead must be prepaid in the original currency of such Revolving Loans and reborrowed in the other currency.

(d)    The Administrative Agent will promptly notify each Lender of its receipt of a notice of conversion or continuation pursuant to this Section 2.2.3 or, if no timely notice is provided by the Company, of the details of any automatic conversion.

(e)    Any conversion of a LIBOR Loan on a day other than the last day of an Interest Period therefor shall be subject to Section 8.4.

2.3    Letter of Credit Procedures.

2.3.1    Notice of Issuance. The Company shall give notice to the Administrative Agent and the applicable Issuing Lender of the proposed issuance of each Letter of Credit on a Business Day which is (i) in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in U.S. Dollars, at least three Business Days (or such lesser number of days as the Administrative Agent and the applicable Issuing Lender shall agree in any particular instance in their sole discretion) prior to the proposed date of issuance of such Letter of Credit and (ii) in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternative Currency, at least five Business Days (or such lesser number of days as the Administrative Agent and the applicable Issuing Lender shall agree in any particular instance in their sole discretion) prior to the proposed date of issuance of such Letter of Credit. Each such notice shall be accompanied by an L/C Application, duly executed by the Company and in all respects





satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and the applicable Issuing Lender, together with such other documentation as the Administrative Agent or the applicable Issuing Lender may request in support thereof, it being understood that each L/C Application shall specify, among other things, the date on which the proposed Letter of Credit is to be issued, the expiration date of such Letter of Credit (which shall be in accordance with Section 2.1.3) and whether such Letter of Credit is to be transferable in whole or in part. Any Letter of Credit outstanding after the scheduled Termination Date which is Cash Collateralized for the benefit of the applicable Issuing Lender shall be the sole responsibility of such Issuing Lender. So long as the applicable Issuing Lender has not received written notice that the conditions precedent set forth in Section 12 with respect to the issuance of such Letter of Credit have not been satisfied, such Issuing Lender shall issue such Letter of Credit on the requested issuance date. Each Issuing Lender shall promptly advise the Administrative Agent of the issuance of each Letter of Credit issued by such Issuing Lender and of any amendment thereto, extension thereof or event or circumstance changing the amount available for drawing thereunder. As of the 2019 Restatement Effective Date, all Letters of Credit outstanding under the Existing Credit Agreement shall be deemed to have been issued pursuant hereto, and from and after the 2019 Restatement Effective Date shall be subject to and governed by the terms and conditions hereof.

2.3.2    Participations in Letters of Credit. Concurrently with the issuance of each Letter of Credit, the applicable Issuing Lender shall be deemed to have sold and transferred to each Lender with a Commitment, and each such Lender shall be deemed irrevocably and unconditionally to have purchased and received from such Issuing Lender, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation, to the extent of such Lender’s Pro Rata Share, in such Letter of Credit and the Company’s reimbursement obligations with respect thereto. If the Company does not pay any reimbursement obligation when due, the Company shall be deemed to have immediately requested that the Lenders make a Revolving Loan which is a Base Rate Loan in a principal amount equal to such reimbursement obligations. The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify such Lenders of such deemed request and, subject to satisfaction or waiver of the conditions satisfied in Section 12.3, such Lender shall make available to the Administrative Agent its Pro Rata Share of such Loan. The proceeds of such Loan shall be paid over by the Administrative Agent to the applicable Issuing Lender for the account of the Company in satisfaction of such reimbursement obligations. For the purposes of this Agreement, the unparticipated portion of each Letter of Credit shall be deemed to be the applicable Issuing Lender’s “participation” therein. Each Issuing Lender hereby agrees, upon request of the Administrative Agent or any Lender, to deliver to the Administrative Agent or such Lender a list of all outstanding Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Lender, together with such information related thereto as the Administrative Agent or such Lender may reasonably request.


2.3.3    Reimbursement Obligations. The Company hereby unconditionally and irrevocably agrees to reimburse each Issuing Lender for each payment or disbursement made by such Issuing Lender under any Letter of Credit issued by such Issuing Lender honoring any demand for payment made by the beneficiary thereunder, in each case on the date that such payment or disbursement is made. Any amount not reimbursed on the date of such payment or disbursement shall bear interest from the date of such payment or disbursement to the date that such Issuing Lender is reimbursed by the Company for such amount, payable on demand, at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate from time to time in effect plus the Base Rate Margin from time to time in effect plus, beginning on the third Business Day after receipt of notice from such Issuing Lender of such payment or disbursement, 2%. The applicable Issuing Lender shall notify the Company and the Administrative Agent whenever any demand for payment is made under any Letter of Credit issued by such Issuing Lender by the beneficiary thereunder; provided that the failure of such Issuing Lender to so notify the Company or the Administrative Agent shall not affect the rights of such Issuing Lender or the Lenders in any manner whatsoever.

The Company’s reimbursement obligations hereunder shall be irrevocable and unconditional under all circumstances, including (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit, this Agreement or any other Loan Document, (ii) the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other right which any Loan Party may have at any time against a beneficiary named in a Letter of Credit, any transferee of any Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom any such transferee may be acting), the Administrative Agent, an Issuing Lender, any Lender or any other Person, whether in connection with any Letter of Credit, this Agreement, any other Loan Document, the transactions contemplated herein or any unrelated transactions (including any underlying transaction between any Loan Party and the beneficiary named in any Letter of Credit), (iii) the validity, sufficiency or genuineness of any document which an Issuing Lender has determined complies on its face with the terms of the applicable Letter of Credit, even if such document should later prove to





have been forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein shall have been untrue or inaccurate in any respect, (iv) the surrender or impairment of any security for the performance or observance of any of the terms hereof or (v) any other event or circumstance whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, that might, but for the provisions of this Section, constitute a legal or equitable discharge of, or provide a right of setoff against, the Company’s obligations hereunder. Without limiting the foregoing, no action or omission whatsoever by the Administrative Agent or any Lender (excluding any Lender in its capacity as an Issuing Lender) under or in connection with any Letter of Credit or any related matters shall result in any liability of the Administrative Agent or any Lender to the Company, or relieve the Company of any of its obligations hereunder to any such Person.

2.3.4    Funding by Lenders to Issuing Lender. If an Issuing Lender makes any payment or disbursement under any Letter of Credit issued by such Issuing Lender and (a) the Company has not reimbursed such Issuing Lender in full for such payment or disbursement on the date immediately following the date of such payment or disbursement, (b) a Revolving Loan may not be made in accordance with Section 2.3.2, or (c) any reimbursement received by an Issuing Lender from the Company is or must be returned or rescinded upon or during any bankruptcy or reorganization of the Company or otherwise, each other Lender with a Commitment shall be obligated to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Issuing Lender, in full or partial payment of the purchase price of its participation in such Letter of Credit, its Pro Rata Share of such payment or disbursement (but no such payment shall diminish the obligations of the Company under Section 2.3.3), and, upon notice from such Issuing Lender, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each other Lender thereof. Each other Lender irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to so pay to the Administrative Agent in immediately available funds for such Issuing Lender’s account the amount of such other Lender’s Pro Rata Share of such payment or disbursement. If and to the extent any Lender shall not have made such amount available to the Administrative Agent by 2:00 P.M., New York City time, on the Business Day on which such Lender receives notice from the Administrative Agent of such payment or disbursement (it being understood that any such notice received after noon, New York City time, on any Business Day shall be deemed to have been received on the next following Business Day), such Lender agrees to pay interest on such amount to the Administrative Agent for an Issuing Lender’s account forthwith on demand, for each day from the date such amount was to have been delivered to the Administrative Agent to the date such amount is paid, at a rate per annum equal to (a) for the first three days after demand, the Federal Funds Rate from time to time in effect, and (b) thereafter, the Base Rate from time to time in effect. Any Lender’s failure to make available to the Administrative Agent its Pro Rata Share of any such payment or disbursement shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligation hereunder to make available to the Administrative Agent such other Lender’s Pro Rata Share of such payment, but no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make available to the Administrative Agent such other Lender’s Pro Rata Share of any such payment or disbursement.
2.3.5    Commitments Several. The failure of any Lender to make a requested Loan on any date shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligation (if any) to make a Loan on such date, but no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make any Loan to be made by such other Lender.

2.3.6    Certain Conditions. Except as otherwise provided in Section 2.3.4 of this Agreement, no Lender shall have an obligation to make any Loan, or to permit the continuation of or any conversion into any LIBOR Loan, and no Issuing Lender shall have any obligation to issue any Letter of Credit, if an Event of Default or Unmatured Event of Default exists.


2.3.7    Indemnification. Without duplication of any obligation of the Company under Section 15.16 or 15.17, in addition to amounts payable as provided herein, the Company hereby agrees to protect, indemnify, pay and save harmless each Issuing Lender from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, charges and expenses (including reasonable legal counsel fees, expenses and disbursements of counsel) which an Issuing Lender may incur or be subject to as a consequence, direct or indirect, of (i) the issuance of any Letter of Credit by an Issuing Lender, other than as a result of (1) the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Issuing Lender or (2) the wrongful dishonor by such Issuing Lender of a proper demand for payment made under any Letter of Credit issued by it or (ii) the failure of an Issuing Lender to honor a drawing under any such Letter of Credit as a result of any act or omission, whether rightful or wrongful, of any present or future de jure or de facto government or Governmental





Authority, in each case as determined by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction.

2.3.8    Responsibility of Issuing Lenders With Respect to Requests for Drawings and Payments. In determining whether to honor any drawing under any Letter of Credit by the beneficiary thereof, each Issuing Lender shall be responsible only to examine the documents delivered under such Letter of Credit with reasonable care so as to ascertain whether they appear on their face to be in accordance with the terms and conditions of such Letter of Credit. As between the Company and each Issuing Lender, the Company assumes all risks of the acts and omissions of, or misuse of the Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Lender by, the respective beneficiaries of such Letters of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, no Issuing Lender shall 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 and 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; (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) errors, omissions, interruptions or delays in transmission or delivery of any messages, by mail, cable, telegraph, telex or otherwise, whether or not they be in cipher; (iv) errors in interpretation of technical terms; (v) 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; (vi) the misapplication by the beneficiary of any such Letter of Credit of the proceeds of any drawing under such Letter of Credit; or (vii) any consequences arising from causes beyond the control of such Issuing Lender, including any act or omission, whether rightful or wrongful, of any present or future de jure or de facto government or Governmental Authority; none of the above shall affect or impair, or prevent the vesting of, any of such Issuing Lender’s rights or powers hereunder. Without limiting the foregoing and in furtherance thereof, no action taken or omitted by an Issuing Lender under or in connection with the Letters of Credit or any documents and certificates delivered thereunder, if taken or omitted in good faith, shall give rise to any liability on the part of such Issuing Lender to the Company. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 2.3.8, the Company shall retain any and all rights it may have against an Issuing Lender for any liability arising solely out of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Issuing Lender, as determined by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction.


2.4    Swing Line Loans.

(a)    Swing Line Loans shall be made in U.S. Dollars in an aggregate minimum amount of $500,000 and integral multiples of $100,000 in excess of that amount.

(b)    Whenever the Company desires that the Swing Line Lender make a Swing Line Loan, the Company shall deliver to the Administrative Agent a Notice of Borrowing no later than 3:00 P.M. (New York City time) on the proposed date of the making of such Swing Line Loan.

(c)    The Swing Line Lender shall make the amount of its Swing Line Loan available to the Administrative Agent not later than 4:00 P.M., New York City time, on the applicable date of the making of such Swing Line Loan by wire transfer of same day funds in U.S. Dollars, at the Administrative Agent’s Principal Office. Except as provided herein, upon satisfaction or waiver of the conditions precedent specified herein, the Administrative Agent shall make the proceeds of such Swing Line Loans available to the Company on the applicable date of the making of such Swing Line Loan by causing an amount of same day funds in U.S. Dollars equal to the proceeds of all such Swing Line Loans received by the Administrative Agent from the Swing Line Lender to be credited to the account of the Company at the Administrative Agent’s Principal Office, or to such other account as may be designated in writing to the Administrative Agent by the Company.

(d)    With respect to any Swing Line Loans which have not been voluntarily prepaid by the Company pursuant to Section 6.2.1 or repaid by the Company pursuant to Section 6.4(b), the Swing Line Lender may at any time in its sole and absolute discretion, deliver to the Administrative Agent (with a copy to the Company), no later than 11:00 A.M., New York City time, at least one Business Day in advance of the proposed date of the making of such Refunded Swing Line Loans (as defined below), a notice (which shall be deemed to be a Notice of Borrowing given by the Company)





requesting that each Lender holding a Commitment make Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans to the Company on such date in an amount equal to the amount of such Swing Line Loans (the “Refunded Swing Line Loans”) outstanding on the date such notice is given which the Swing Line Lender requests Lenders to prepay. Anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, (1) the proceeds of such Revolving Loans made by the Lenders other than the Swing Line Lender shall be immediately delivered by the Administrative Agent to the Swing Line Lender (and not to the Company) and applied to repay a corresponding portion of the Refunded Swing Line Loans and (2) on the day such Revolving Loans are made, the Swing Line Lender’s Pro Rata Share of the Refunded Swing Line Loans shall be deemed to be paid with the proceeds of a Revolving Loan made by the Swing Line Lender to the Company, and such portion of the Swing Line Loans deemed to be so paid shall no longer be outstanding as Swing Line Loans of the Swing Line Lender but shall instead constitute part of the Swing Line Lender’s outstanding Revolving Loans to the Company. The Company hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent and the Swing Line Lender to charge the Company’s accounts with the Administrative Agent and the Swing Line Lender (up to the amount available in each such account) in order to immediately pay the Swing Line Lender the amount of the Refunded Swing Line Loans to the extent the proceeds of such Revolving Loans made by Lenders, including the Revolving Loans deemed to be made by the Swing Line Lender, are not sufficient to repay in full the Refunded Swing Line Loans. If any portion of any such amount paid (or deemed to be paid) to the Swing Line Lender should be recovered by or on behalf of the Company from the Swing Line Lender in bankruptcy, by assignment for the benefit of creditors or otherwise, the loss of the amount so recovered shall be ratably shared among all Lenders in the manner contemplated by Section 7.5.

(e)    If for any reason Revolving Loans are not made hereunder in an amount sufficient to repay any amounts owed to the Swing Line Lender in respect of any outstanding Swing Line Loans on or before the third Business Day after demand for payment thereof by the Swing Line Lender, each Lender holding a Commitment shall be deemed to, and hereby agrees to, have purchased a participation in such outstanding Swing Line Loans, and in an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share of the applicable unpaid amount together with accrued interest thereon. Upon one Business Days’ notice from the Swing Line Lender, each Lender holding a Commitment shall deliver to the Swing Line Lender an amount equal to its respective participation in the applicable unpaid amount in same day funds at the Principal Office of the Swing Line Lender. In order to evidence such participation each Lender holding a Commitment agrees to enter into a participation agreement at the request of the Swing Line Lender in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Swing Line Lender. In the event any Lender holding a Commitment fails to make available to the Swing Line Lender the amount of such Lender’s participation as provided in this paragraph, the Swing Line Lender shall be entitled to recover such amount on demand from such Lender together with interest thereon for three Business Days at the rate customarily used by the Swing Line Lender for the correction of errors among banks and thereafter at the Base Rate, as applicable.

(f)    Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, each Lender’s obligation to make Revolving Loans for the purpose of repaying any Swing Line Loans pursuant to the second preceding paragraph and each Lender’s obligation to purchase a participation in any unpaid Swing Line Loans pursuant to the immediately preceding paragraph shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (A) any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Lender may have against the Swing Line Lender, any Loan Party or any other Person for any reason whatsoever; (B) the occurrence or continuation of an Unmatured Event of Default or Event of Default; (C) (i) a material adverse change in, or a material adverse effect upon, the financial condition, operations, assets, business, properties or prospects of the Loan Parties taken as a whole, (ii) a material impairment of the ability of any Loan Party to perform any of the Obligations under any Loan Document or (iii) a material adverse effect upon the legality, validity, binding effect or enforceability against any Loan Party of any Loan Document; (D) any breach of this Agreement or any other Loan Document by any party thereto; or (E) any other circumstance, happening or event whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing.

2.5    Availability of Funds. Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified by any Lender prior to the applicable date of the making of a Loan or the issuing or renewal of a Letter of Credit that such Lender does not intend to make available to the Administrative Agent the amount of such Lender’s Loan requested on such date, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such amount available to the Administrative Agent on





such date and the Administrative Agent may, in its sole discretion, but shall not be obligated to, make available to the Company a corresponding amount on such date. If such corresponding amount is not in fact made available to the Administrative Agent by such Lender, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover such corresponding amount on demand from such Lender together with interest thereon, for each day from such date until the date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent, at the customary rate set by the Administrative Agent for the correction of errors among banks for three Business Days and thereafter at the Base Rate. If such Lender does not pay such corresponding amount forthwith upon the Administrative Agent’s demand therefor, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Company and the Company shall immediately pay such corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent together with interest thereon, for each day from such date until the date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent, at the rate payable hereunder for Base Rate Loans for such class of Loans. Nothing in this Section 2.5 shall be deemed to relieve any Lender from its obligation to fulfill its Commitment hereunder or to prejudice any rights that the Company may have against any Lender as a result of any default by such Lender hereunder.

2.6    Defaulting Lenders. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Swing Line Commitment or Letter of Credit Commitment exists at the time a Lender having a Commitment becomes a Defaulting Lender (such Lender, a “Defaulting Revolving Lender”) then:

(a)    such Defaulting Revolving Lender’s right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent with respect to this amendment shall be restricted as set forth in the definition of Required Lenders and Section 15.1;
    
(b)    all or any part of such Swing Line Commitment and Letter of Credit Commitment shall be reallocated among the non-Defaulting Revolving Lenders in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Share of such Swing Line Commitment and/or Letter of Credit Commitment but only to the extent (i) the sum of the non-Defaulting Revolving Lenders’ Pro Rata Shares of the sum, as at any date of determination, of (x) the aggregate principal amount of all Revolving Loans (other than Revolving Loans made for the purpose of reimbursing an Issuing Lender for any amount drawn under any Letter of Credit, but not yet so applied), (x) the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Swing Line Loans and (z) the Letter of Credit Usage, plus such Defaulting Revolving Lender’s Pro Rata Share of Revolving Exposure do not exceed the total of all non-Defaulting Revolving Lenders’ Commitments and (ii) the conditions set forth in Section 12.3 are satisfied at such time; provided that the aggregate obligation of each non-Defaulting Revolving Lender to acquire, refinance or fund participations in Letters of Credit and Swing Line Loans shall not exceed the positive difference, if any, of (A) the Commitment of that non-Defaulting Lender minus (B) the sum of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Revolving Loans of such non-Defaulting Lender plus such non-Defaulting Lender’s Pro Rata Share of the outstanding Swing Line Loans and Letter of Credit Usage;

(c)    if the reallocation described in clause (a) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Company shall (i) first, within one Business Day following notice by the Administrative Agent, prepay any outstanding Swing Line Loans to the extent the Swing Line Commitments related thereto have not been reallocated pursuant to clause (a) above and (ii) second, within five Business Days following notice by the Administrative Agent, Cash Collateralize such Defaulting Lender’s Pro Rata Share of the Letter of Credit Commitment (after giving effect to any partial reallocation pursuant to clause (a) above) for so long as such Letter of Credit Commitment is outstanding;

(d)    if the Letter of Credit Commitment of the non-Defaulting Revolving Lenders is reallocated pursuant to clause (a) above, then the fees payable to the Lenders pursuant to Section 5 solely in respect of the unfunded portion of such Lenders’ Commitment shall be adjusted in accordance with such non-Defaulting Revolving Lenders’ Pro Rata Shares; and

(e)    If the Company, the Administrative Agent, the Swing Line Lender and each Issuing Lender agree in writing that a Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein (which may include arrangements with respect to any cash collateral), that Lender will, to the extent applicable, purchase at par that portion of outstanding Loans of the other Lenders or take such other actions as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letters of Credit and





Swing Line Loans to be held pro rata by the Lenders in accordance with the Commitments (without giving effect to paragraph (b) above), whereupon, such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Revolving Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Company while that Lender was a Defaulting Revolving Lender; and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Revolving Lender to Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender’s having been a Defaulting Revolving Lender.

SECTION 3EVIDENCING OF LOANS.

3.1    Notes. If so requested by any Lender by written notice to the Company (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), the Loans of each Lender shall be evidenced by a Note, with appropriate insertions, payable to such Lender in a face principal amount equal to such Lender’s Commitment.

3.2    Recordkeeping. The Administrative Agent, on behalf of each Lender, shall record in its records, the date and amount of each Loan made by each Lender, each repayment or conversion thereof and, in the case of each LIBOR, EURIBOR, CDOR and BBR Loan, the dates on which each Interest Period for such Loan shall begin and end. The aggregate unpaid principal amount so recorded shall be rebuttably presumptive evidence of the principal amount of the Loans owing and unpaid. The failure to so record any such amount or any error in so recording any such amount shall not, however, limit or otherwise affect the Obligations of the Company hereunder or under any Note to repay the principal amount of the Loans hereunder, together with all interest accruing thereon. The Administrative Agent will provide to the Company, at the Company’s expense, copies of such records pertaining to the Company from time to time upon the Company’s reasonable written request.

SECTION 4INTEREST.

4.1    Interest Rates. The Company promises to pay interest on the unpaid principal amount of each Loan for the period commencing on the date of such Loan until such Loan is paid in full as follows:

(a)    in the case of Revolving Loans

(i)at all times while such Loan is a Base Rate Loan, at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the Base Rate from time to time in effect plus the Base Rate Margin from time to time in effect;

(ii)at all times while such Loan is a LIBOR Loan, (A) in the case of a LIBOR Loan denominated in U.S. Dollars, at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the Adjusted LIBO Rate applicable to each Interest Period for such Loan plus the LIBOR/EURIBOR/CDOR/BBR Margin from time to time in effect and (B) in the case of a LIBOR Loan denominated in an Alternative Currency, at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the LIBO Rate applicable to each Interest Period for such Loan plus the LIBOR/EURIBOR/CDOR/BBR Margin from time to time in effect;

(iii)at all times while such Loan is an EURIBOR Loan, at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the EURIBO Rate applicable to each Interest Period for such Loan plus the LIBOR/EURIBOR/CDOR/BBR Margin from time to time in effect;

(iv)at all times while such Loan is a CDOR Loan, at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the CDOR Rate applicable to each Interest Period for such Loan plus the LIBOR/EURIBOR/CDOR/BBR Margin from time to time in effect;

(v)at all times while such Loan is a BBR Loan, at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the BB Rate applicable to each Interest Period for such Loan plus the LIBOR/EURIBOR/CDOR/BBR Margin from time to time in effect; and


(b)    in the case of Swing Line Loans, the sum of the Base Rate from time to time in effect plus the Base Rate Margin from time to time in effect;





 
provided that (i) if any amount payable by the Company under the Loan Documents is not paid when due (without regard to any applicable grace periods), whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise, then such amount shall thereafter bear interest at a fluctuating interest rate per annum at all times equal to the Default Rate to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Laws; and (ii) accrued and unpaid interest on past due amounts (including interest on past due interest) shall be due and payable on demand.
4.2    Interest Payment Dates. Accrued interest on each Loan shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date and at maturity. After maturity, and at any time an Event of Default exists, accrued interest on all Loans shall be payable on demand.

4.3    Setting and Notice of Rates. The applicable rate for each Interest Period shall be determined by the Administrative Agent, and notice thereof shall be given by the Administrative Agent promptly to the Company and each Lender. The Administrative Agent shall, upon written request of the Company or any Lender, deliver to the Company or such Lender a statement showing the computations used by the Administrative Agent in determining any applicable Adjusted LIBO Rate, LIBO Rate, EURIBO Rate, CDOR Rate or BB Rate hereunder.

4.4    Computation of Interest.

(a)Interest shall be computed for the actual number of days elapsed on the basis of a year of (a) 360 days for interest calculated at the LIBO Rate, EURIBO Rate, CDOR Rate or BB Rate and (b) 365/366 days for interest calculated at the Base Rate; provided that in the case of (i) Loans denominated in Sterling, interest shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days and (ii) Loans denominated in Alternative Currencies, other than Sterling, as to which customary market practice differs from the foregoing, interest shall be computed in accordance with such market practice. The applicable interest rate for each Base Rate Loan shall change simultaneously with each change in the Base Rate.

(b)Except as otherwise set forth herein, interest on each Loan (i) shall accrue on a daily basis and shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date with respect to interest accrued on and to each such Interest Payment Date; (ii) shall accrue on a daily basis and shall be payable in arrears upon any prepayment of such Loan, whether voluntary or mandatory, to the extent accrued on the amount being prepaid; and (iii) shall accrue on a daily basis and shall be payable in arrears at maturity of such Loan, including final maturity of such Loan; provided, that with respect to any voluntary prepayment of a Base Rate Loan, accrued interest shall instead be payable on the applicable Interest Payment Date.

(c)Each determination of an interest rate by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive and binding upon the parties hereto, in the absence of demonstrable error.

SECTION 5FEES.

5.1    Facility Fee. The Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent at its Principal Office for the account of each Lender a facility fee in U.S. Dollars, for the period from the 2019 Restatement Effective Date to the Termination Date, at the Facility Fee Rate in effect from time to time of such Lender’s Pro Rata Share (as adjusted from time to time) of the Commitments (whether used or unused); provided, that (i) any facility fee accrued with respect to any of the unfunded Commitments of a Defaulting Lender during the period prior to the time such Lender became a Defaulting Lender and unpaid at such time shall be payable by the Company so long as such facility fee shall otherwise have been due and payable by the Company prior to such time of such Lender becoming a Defaulting Lender, (ii) facility fees shall continue to accrue on the amount of the Commitment of a Defaulting Lender only to the extent of the Revolving Exposure of such Defaulting Lender and (iii) if a Lender continues to have any Revolving Exposure after its Commitment terminates, then facility fees shall continue to accrue on the daily amount of such Lender’s Revolving Exposure from and including the date on which its Commitment terminates to but excluding the date on which such Lender ceases to have any Revolving Exposure. Facility fees shall be payable in arrears on the last day of each calendar quarter and on the Termination Date for any period then ending for which such facility fees shall not have previously been paid. The facility fee shall be computed for the actual number of days elapsed on the basis of a year of 360 days.






5.2    Letter of Credit Fees.

(a)The Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent at its Principal Office for the account of each Lender a letter of credit fee for each Letter of Credit equal to the L/C Fee Rate in effect from time to time of such Lender’s Pro Rata Share (as adjusted from time to time) of the undrawn amount of such Letter of Credit (computed for the actual number of days elapsed on the basis of a year of 360 days). Such letter of credit fees shall be payable in arrears on the last Business Day of each calendar quarter and on the Termination Date (or such later date on which such Letter of Credit expires or is terminated) for the period from the date of the issuance of each Letter of Credit (or the last day on which the letter of credit fee was paid with respect thereto) to the date such payment is due or, if earlier, the date on which such Letter of Credit expired or was terminated.

(b)In addition, with respect to each Letter of Credit, the Company agrees to pay to each Issuing Lender, for its own account, (i) such fees and expenses as such Issuing Lender customarily requires in connection with the issuance, negotiation, processing and/or administration of letters of credit in similar situations and (ii) a letter of credit fronting fee of 0.125% per annum on the aggregate face amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Lender. Such letter of credit fronting fee shall be payable in arrears on the last Business Day of each calendar quarter and on the Termination Date (or such later date on which such Letter of Credit expires or is terminated) for the period from the date of the issuance of each Letter of Credit (or the last day on which the letter of credit fee was paid with respect thereto) to the date such payment is due or, if earlier, the date on which such Letter of Credit expired or was terminated.

5.3    Administrative Agent’s Fees. The Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent such agent’s fees in the amounts and at times separately agreed upon.

SECTION 6REDUCTION OR TERMINATION OF THE COMMITMENT; PREPAYMENTS.

6.1    Reduction or Termination of the Commitment.

6.1.1    Voluntary Reduction or Termination of the Commitment. The Company may from time to time on at least three Business Days’ prior written notice received by the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly advise each Lender thereof) permanently reduce the Commitments to an amount not less than the Revolving Outstandings; provided that a notice of termination or reduction of the Commitments under this Section 6.1.1 may state that such notice is conditioned upon the occurrence of one or more events specified therein, in which case such notice may be revoked by the Company (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified effective date). Any such reduction shall be in an amount not less than $1,000,000 or a higher integral multiple of $100,000. Concurrently with any reduction of the Commitments to zero, the Company shall pay all interest on the Loans, all facility fees and all letter of credit fees and shall Cash Collateralize in full all obligations arising with respect to the Letters of Credit.

6.1.2    All Reductions of the Commitment. All reductions of the Commitment shall reduce the Commitments ratably among the Lenders according to their respective Pro Rata Shares.
    
6.2    Prepayments.

6.2.1    Voluntary Prepayments. The Company may from time to time prepay the Loans in whole or in part; provided that the Company shall give the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly advise each Lender) written notice thereof, which shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit F, not later than (i) with respect to Base Rate Loans, 12:00 P.M., Local Time, one Business Day prior to the proposed date of such prepayment, (ii) in the case of LIBOR Loans denominated in U.S. Dollars and Swing Line Loans, 12:00 P.M., Local Time, three Business Days prior to the proposed date of such prepayment and (iii) in the case of LIBOR Loans, EURIBOR Loans, CDOR Loans and BBR Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency, 12:00 P.M., Local Time, four Business Days prior to the proposed date of such prepayment, which shall, in each case, be a Business Day, specifying the Loans to be prepaid and the date and amount of prepayment. Any such partial prepayment shall be in an amount equal to the applicable Borrowing Minimum or a higher integral multiple of the applicable Borrowing Multiple.






6.2.2    Mandatory Prepayments. If on any day (a) the Commitments are reduced pursuant to Section 6.1.2 or (b) due to fluctuations in currency exchange rates or any other reason, the Revolving Outstandings exceeds the Commitments, the Company shall immediately prepay Revolving Loans or Cash Collateralize the outstanding Letters of Credit, or do a combination of the foregoing, in an amount sufficient to eliminate such excess. If on any day the Administrative Agent or any Lender notifies the Company that the U.S. Dollar Equivalent of the aggregate principal amount of outstanding Revolving Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency exceeds an amount equal to 105% of the Alternative Currency Sublimit, within 5 Business Days after receipt of such notice, the Company shall prepay Revolving Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency in an aggregate amount such that, after giving effect to such prepayments, the U.S. Dollar Equivalent of the aggregate principal amount of outstanding Revolving Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency does not exceed the Alternative Currency Sublimit.

6.3    Manner of Prepayments. Each voluntary partial prepayment shall be in a principal amount of the applicable Borrowing Minimum or a higher integral multiple of the applicable Borrowing Multiple. Any partial prepayment of a Borrowing of LIBOR Loans, EURIBOR Loans, CDOR Loans or BBR Loans shall be subject to Section 2.2.3(a). Any prepayment of a LIBOR Loan, EURIBOR Loan, CDOR Loan or BBR Loan on a day other than the last day of an Interest Period therefor shall include interest on the principal amount being repaid and shall be subject to Section 8.4. Except as otherwise provided by this Agreement, all principal payments in respect of the Loans shall be applied first, to repay outstanding Swing Line Loans to the full extent thereof; second, to repay outstanding Base Rate Loans to the full extent thereof; and third, to repay outstanding LIBOR Loans, EURIBOR Loans, CDOR Loans and BBR Loans in direct order of Interest Period maturities.

6.4    Repayments.

(a)The Revolving Loans of each Lender shall be paid in full and the Commitment shall terminate on the Termination Date.

(b)The Company shall repay each Swing Line Loan on the earlier to occur of (i) the date five Business Days after such Loan is made and (ii) the Termination Date.

(c)On or prior to the Termination Date, the Company shall terminate, Cash Collateralize or make such other arrangement as each applicable Issuing Lender shall reasonably agree with respect to each Letter of Credit that otherwise would remain outstanding as of the Termination Date.

SECTION 7MAKING AND PRORATION OF PAYMENTS; SETOFF; TAXES.

7.1    Making of Payments. All payments of principal or interest on Loans denominated in U.S. Dollars, and of all fees, shall be made by the Company to the Administrative Agent in U.S. Dollars or, in the case of Loan denominated in an Alternative Currency, in such Alternative Currency, in each case in same day funds, without defense, setoff or counterclaim, free of any restriction or condition, at the Principal Office designated by the Administrative Agent not later than 12:00 P.M., New York City time, on the date due; and funds received after that hour shall be deemed to have been received by the Administrative Agent on the following Business Day. The Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to each Lender its share of all such payments received in collected funds by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender. All payments under Section 8.1 shall be made by the Company directly to the Lender entitled thereto without setoff, counterclaim or other defense.

7.2    Application of Certain Payments. So long as no Unmatured Event of Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, voluntary and mandatory prepayments shall be applied as set forth in Sections 6.2 and 6.3. After the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, all amounts collected or received by the Administrative Agent or any Lender shall be applied in the following order, and concurrently with each remittance to any Lender of its share of any such payment, the Administrative Agent shall advise such Lender as to the application of such payment: (i) first, to the payment of all fees, costs, expenses and indemnities of the Administrative Agent (in its capacity as such), including Attorney Costs, until paid in full; (ii) second, to the payment of all fees, costs, expenses and indemnities of the Lenders, pro-rata, until paid in full; (iii) third, to the payment of all of the Obligations consisting of accrued and unpaid interest owing to any Lender, pro-rata, until paid in full; (iv) fourth, to the payment of all Obligations consisting of principal owing to any Lender and unreimbursed disbursements under Letters of Credit owing to any Issuing Lender, pro-rata, until paid in full; (v) fifth, to the payment of the Administrative Agent an amount equal to all Obligations in respect of outstanding Letters of Credit to be held as cash collateral in respect of such obligations; (vi) sixth, to the payment of all other Obligations owing to each Lender, pro-rata, until paid in full;





and (viii) seventh, to whomever may be lawfully entitled to receive such amounts, the amount of any remaining proceeds.

7.3    Due Date Extension. If any payment of principal or interest with respect to any of the Loans, or of any fees, falls due on a day which is not a Business Day, then such due date shall be extended to the immediately following Business Day (unless, in the case of a Eurocurrency Loan, a CDOR Loan or a BBR Loan, such immediately following Business Day is the first Business Day of a calendar month, in which case such due date shall be the immediately preceding Business Day) and, in the case of principal, additional interest shall accrue and be payable for the period of any such extension.

7.4    Setoff. The Company agrees that the Administrative Agent and each Lender have all rights of set-off and bankers’ lien provided by applicable Law, in any currency, and in addition thereto, the Company agrees that at any time any Event of Default exists, the Administrative Agent and each Lender may apply to the payment of any Obligations of the Company hereunder, whether or not then due, any and all balances, credits, deposits, accounts or moneys of the Company then or thereafter with the Administrative Agent or such Lender.

7.5    Proration of Payments.

(a)    If any Lender shall obtain any payment or other recovery (whether voluntary, involuntary, by application of offset or otherwise, on account of (i) principal of or interest on any Loan, but excluding (x) any payment pursuant to Section 8.7 or 15.4 and (y) payments of interest on any Affected Loan) or (ii) its participation in any Letter of Credit or Swing Line Loans in excess of its applicable Pro Rata Share of payments and other recoveries obtained by all Lenders on account of principal of and interest on the Loans (or such participation) then held by them, then such Lender shall purchase from the other Lenders such participations in the Loans (or sub-participations in Letters of Credit) held by them as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender to share the excess payment or other recovery ratably with each of them; provided that if all or any portion of the excess payment or other recovery is thereafter recovered from such purchasing Lender, the purchase shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery.

(b)    All Loans shall be made, and all participations purchased, by Lenders simultaneously and proportionally to their respective Pro Rata Shares, it being understood that no Lender shall be responsible for any default by any other Lender in such other Lender’s obligation to make a Loan requested hereunder or purchase a participation required hereby nor shall any Commitment of any Lender be increased or decreased as a result of a default by any other Lender in such other Lender’s obligation to make a Loan requested hereunder or purchase a participation required hereby.
7.6    Taxes.

(a)    (i) To the extent permitted by applicable Law, all payments hereunder or under the Loan Documents (including any payment of principal, interest or fees) to, or for the benefit, of any person shall be made by the Company free and clear of and without deduction or withholding for, or account of, any Taxes or Other Taxes now or hereinafter imposed by any taxing authority.

(ii) In addition, the Company shall pay any Other Taxes to the relevant taxing authority in accordance with applicable Law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent timely reimburse it for, Other Taxes.
(b)    If the Company makes any payment hereunder or under any Loan Document in respect of which it is required by applicable Law to deduct or withhold any Taxes or Other Taxes, the Company shall increase the payment hereunder or under any such Loan Document such that after the reduction for the amount of Taxes or Other Taxes withheld (and any taxes withheld or imposed with respect to the additional payments required under this Section 7.6(b)), the amount paid to the Lenders or the Administrative Agent equals the amount that was payable hereunder or under any such Loan Document without regard to this Section 7.6(b). To the extent the Company withholds any Taxes or Other Taxes on payments hereunder or under any Loan Document, the Company shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant taxing authority within the time allowed for payment under applicable Law and shall deliver to the Administrative Agent within thirty days after it has made payment to such authority a receipt issued by such authority (or other evidence satisfactory





to the Administrative Agent) evidencing the payment of all amounts so required to be deducted or withheld from such payment.

(c)    If any Lender or the Administrative Agent is required by Law to make any payments of any Taxes or Other Taxes on or in relation to any amounts received or receivable hereunder or under any other Loan Document, or any Tax is assessed against a Lender or the Administrative Agent with respect to amounts received or receivable hereunder or under any other Loan Document, the Company will indemnify such person against (i) such Taxes or Other Taxes (and any reasonable expenses associated with such Tax) and (ii) any Taxes or Other Taxes imposed as a result of the receipt of the payment under this Section 7.6(c), whether or not such Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by relevant taxing authority. A certificate prepared in good faith as to the amount of such payment by such Lender or the Administrative Agent shall, absent manifest error, be final, conclusive, and binding on all parties.

(d)    (i) Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document shall deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Company or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements.

(ii)     Each Lender that is not a United States person within the meaning of Code Section 7701(a)(30) (a “Non-U.S. Participant”) shall deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the 2019 Restatement Effective Date (or in the case of a Lender that is an Assignee, on the date of such assignment to such Lender) two accurate and complete signed copies of IRS Form W‑8BEN, W‑8BEN‑E, W‑8ECI, or W‑8IMY (or any successor or other applicable form prescribed by the IRS), as applicable, certifying to such Lender’s entitlement to a complete exemption from, or a reduced rate in, United States withholding tax on interest payments to be made hereunder or any Loan. If a Lender that is a Non-U.S. Participant is claiming a complete exemption from withholding on interest pursuant to Code Sections 871(h) or 881(c), the Lender shall deliver (along with two accurate and complete signed copies of IRS Form W‑8BEN, or W‑8BEN‑E, as applicable) a certificate in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Company and the Administrative Agent (any such certificate, a “Withholding Certificate”). In addition, each Lender that is a Non-U.S. Participant agrees that from time to time after the 2019 Restatement Effective Date, (or in the case of a Lender that is an Assignee, after the date of the assignment to such Lender), when a lapse in time or a change in circumstances renders the prior certificates hereunder obsolete or inaccurate, such Lender shall, to the extent permitted under applicable Law, deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent two new and accurate and complete signed copies of IRS Form W-8BEN, W-8BEN-E, W-8ECI, or W-8IMY (or any successor or other applicable forms prescribed by the IRS), and if applicable, a new Withholding Certificate, to confirm or establish the entitlement of such Lender or the Administrative Agent to an exemption from, or reduction in, United States withholding tax on interest payments to be made hereunder or any Loan.

(iii)     Each Lender that is not a Non-U.S. Participant shall provide two properly completed and duly executed copies of IRS Form W-9 (or any successor or other applicable form) to the Company and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the 2019 Restatement Effective Date (or in the case of a Lender that is an Assignee, on the date of such assignment to such Lender) certifying that such Lender is exempt from United States backup withholding tax. To the extent that a form provided pursuant to this Section 7.6(d)(iii) is rendered obsolete or





inaccurate as result of a change in circumstances with respect to the status of a Lender, such Lender shall, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent revised forms necessary to confirm or establish the entitlement to such Lender’s or Agent’s exemption from United States backup withholding tax.

(iv)      If a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. Federal withholding tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Company and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by Law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable Law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Company or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Company and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this Section 7.6(d)(iv), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the Original Effective Date.

(v)     Each Lender agrees to indemnify and hold harmless (i) the Administrative Agent for and against the full amount of any and all present or future Taxes and related liabilities (including penalties, interest, additions to tax and expenses), any Taxes imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable to the Administrative Agent under this Section 7.6 which are imposed on or with respect to principal, interest or fees payable to such Lender hereunder and which are not paid by the Company pursuant to this Section 7.6, and (ii) the Administrative Agent for and against any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent in connection with any Loan Document, whether or not such Taxes, Excluded Taxes or related liabilities were correctly or legally asserted. This indemnification shall be made within 30 days from the date the Administrative Agent makes written demand therefor.

(e)    Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 7.6 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 7.6), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 7.6 with respect to the taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses (including taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (e) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (e), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (e) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such tax had never been paid. This paragraph shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its tax returns (or any other information relating to its taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.

(f)    Each party's obligations under this Section 7.6 shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Administrative Agent or any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, the





termination of the Commitments and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Loan Document.

SECTION 8INCREASED COSTS; SPECIAL PROVISIONS FOR EUROCURRENCY LOANS, CDOR LOANS AND BBR LOANS.

8.1    Increased Costs.

(a)    If, after the 2019 Restatement Effective Date, the adoption of, or any change in, any applicable Law, or any change in the interpretation or administration of any applicable Law by any Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by any Lender with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency: (i) shall impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve (including any reserve imposed by the FRB), special deposit or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by any Lender; (ii) shall impose on any Lender any other condition affecting its Eurocurrency Loans, CDOR Loans or BBR Loans, its Note or its obligation to make Eurocurrency Loans, CDOR Loans or BBR Loans or its participations in Letters of Credit or (iii) subject any Lender to any taxes (other than (A) Taxes on or in relation to any amounts received or receivable under Loan Documents, (B) Excluded Taxes and (C) Other Taxes) on its Loans, Loan principal, Letters of Credit, commitments or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto; and the result of anything described in clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) above is to increase the cost to (or to impose a cost on) such Lender (or any lending office, as applicable, of such Lender) of making or maintaining any Eurocurrency Loan, CDOR Loan or BBR Loan, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender (or its lending office, as applicable) under this Agreement or under its Note with respect thereto, then upon demand by such Lender (which demand shall be accompanied by a statement setting forth the basis for such demand and a calculation of the amount thereof in reasonable detail, a copy of which shall be furnished to the Administrative Agent), the Company shall pay directly to such Lender such additional amount as will compensate such Lender for such increased cost or such reduction, so long as such amounts have accrued on or after the day which is 180 days prior to the date on which such Lender first made demand therefor.

(b)    If any Lender shall reasonably determine that any change in, or the adoption or phase-in of, any applicable Law regarding capital adequacy or liquidity, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or the compliance by any Lender or any Person controlling such Lender with any request or directive regarding capital adequacy or liquidity (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 such Lender’s or such controlling Person’s capital as a consequence of such Lender’s obligations hereunder or under any Letter of Credit to a level below that which such Lender or such controlling Person could have achieved but for such change, adoption, phase-in or compliance (taking into consideration such Lender’s or such controlling Person’s policies with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity) by an amount deemed by such Lender or such controlling Person to be material, then from time to time, upon demand by such Lender (which demand shall be accompanied by a statement setting forth the basis for such demand and a calculation of the amount thereof in reasonable detail, a copy of which shall be furnished to the Administrative Agent), the Company shall pay to such Lender such additional amount as will compensate such Lender or such controlling Person for such reduction so long as such amounts have accrued on or after the day which is 180 days prior to the date on which such Lender first made demand therefor.
For purposes of this Section 8.1, (a) the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and all rules, regulations, orders, requests, guidelines or directives thereunder or issued in connection therewith and (b) all requests, rules, guidelines or directives promulgated by the Bank of International settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor or similar authority) or the United States or foreign regulatory authorities, in each case, pursuant to Basel III, shall in each case be deemed to have been adopted and gone into effect after the 2019 Restatement Effective Date, regardless of the date enacted, adopted or issued.





8.2    Basis for Determining Interest Rate Inadequate or Unfair; Alternative Rate of Interest.

Unless and until a Replacement Rate is implemented in accordance with clause (b) below, in connection with any request for a LIBO Rate Loan, EURIBO Rate Loan, CDOR Rate Loan or BBR Loan or a conversion to or continuation thereof or otherwise,
(a)    (i) the Administrative Agent reasonably determines (which determination shall be binding and conclusive on the Company) that by reason of circumstances affecting the interbank LIBOR market or any other applicable interbank market adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the applicable LIBO Rate, EURIBO Rate, CDOR Rate or BB Rate, as applicable; or

(ii)     the Required Lenders advise the Administrative Agent that the LIBO Rate, EURIBO Rate, CDOR Rate or BB Rate, as applicable, as determined by the Administrative Agent will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of maintaining or funding Eurocurrency Loans, CDOR Loans or BBR Loans, as applicable, for such Interest Period (taking into account any amount to which such Lenders may be entitled under Section 8.1) or that the making or funding of Eurocurrency Loans, CDOR Loans or BBR Loans has become impracticable as a result of an event occurring after the 2019 Restatement Effective Date which in the opinion of such Lenders materially affects such Loans; then the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the other parties thereof and, so long as such circumstances shall continue, (i) no Lender shall be under any obligation to make or convert any Base Rate Loans into LIBOR Loans and (ii) on the last day of the current Interest Period for each Eurocurrency Loan, CDOR Loan and BBR Loan, such Loan shall, unless then repaid in full, (i) in the case of Loans in U.S. Dollars, be automatically converted into Base Rate Loans on the last day of the then-current Interest Period with respect thereto and (ii) in the case of Loans in any Alternative Currency, at the option of the Company, either (x) be repaid on the last day of the then-current Interest Period with respect thereto or (y) be converted into Base Rate Loans denominated in U.S. Dollars on the last day of the then-current Interest Period with respect thereto, at the Spot Rate in effect on such day.
(b)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 8.2(a) above, if the Administrative Agent has made the determination (such determination to be conclusive absent manifest error) that (i) the circumstances described in Section 8.2(a)(i) or (a)(ii) have arisen and that such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary, (ii) any applicable interest rate specified herein is no longer a widely recognized benchmark rate for newly originated loans in the syndicated loan market in the applicable currency or (iii) the applicable supervisor or administrator (if any) of any applicable interest rate specified herein or any Governmental Authority having, or purporting to have, jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which any applicable interest rate specified herein shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans in the syndicated loan market in the applicable currency, then the Administrative Agent may, to the extent practicable (in consultation with the Company and as determined by the Administrative Agent to be generally in accordance with similar situations in other transactions in which it is serving as administrative agent or otherwise consistent with market practice generally), establish a replacement interest rate (the “Replacement Rate”), in which case, the Replacement Rate shall, subject to the next two sentences, replace such applicable interest rate for all purposes under the Loan Documents unless and until (A) an event described in Section 8.2(b)(i), (b)(ii) or (b)(iii) occurs with respect to the Replacement Rate in which case the provisions of this Section 8.2(b) shall apply to the determination of a new Replacement Rate or (B) an event described in Section 8.2(a)(i) or (a)(ii) occurs with respect to the Replacement Rate or the Administrative Agent (or the Required Lenders through the Administrative Agent) notifies the Company that the Replacement Rate does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to the Lenders of funding the Loans bearing interest at the Replacement Rate, in which case Section 8.2(a) shall apply as if references therein to LIBO, EURIBO, CDOR or BBR, as the case may be, shall be deemed to be the Replacement Rate. In connection with the establishment and application of the Replacement Rate, this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be amended solely with the consent of the Administrative Agent and the Company, as may be necessary or appropriate, in the opinion of the Administrative Agent, to effect the provisions of this Section 8.2(b). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or the other Loan Documents (including





Section 15.1), such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement so long as the Administrative Agent shall not have received, within five Business Days of the delivery of such amendment to the Lenders, written notices from such Lenders that in the aggregate constitute Required Lenders, with each such notice stating that such Lender objects to such amendment. To the extent the Replacement Rate is approved by the Administrative Agent in connection with this clause (b), the Replacement Rate shall be applied in a manner consistent with market practice; provided that, in each case, to the extent such market practice is not administratively feasible for the Administrative Agent, such Replacement Rate shall be applied as otherwise reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent (it being understood that any such modification by the Administrative Agent shall not require the consent of, or consultation with, any of the Lenders); provided further that, if such Replacement Rate shall be less than zero, such rate shall be deemed to be zero for purposes of this Agreement.

8.3    Changes in Law Rendering Eurocurrency Loans Unlawful. If any change in, or the adoption of any new, Law, or any change in the interpretation of any applicable Law by any Governmental Authority charged with the administration thereof, should make it (or in the good faith judgment of any Lender cause a substantial question as to whether it is) unlawful for any Lender to make, maintain or fund Eurocurrency Loans, then such Lender shall promptly notify each of the other parties hereto and, so long as such circumstances shall continue, (a) such Lender shall have no obligation to make Eurocurrency Loans or convert any Base Rate Loan into a LIBOR Loan (but shall make Base Rate Loans concurrently with the making of Eurocurrency Loans or conversion of Base Rate Loans into LIBOR Loans, by the Lenders which are not so affected, in each case in an amount equal to the amount of Eurocurrency Loans, as applicable, which would be made or converted into by such Lender at such time in the absence of such circumstances) and (b) on the last day of the current Interest Period for each Eurocurrency Loan, as applicable of such Lender (or, in any event, on such earlier date as may be required by the relevant Law or interpretation), such Eurocurrency Loan shall, unless then repaid in full, (i) in the case of Loans in U.S. Dollars, be automatically converted into Base Rate Loans on the last day of the then-current Interest Period with respect thereto and (ii) in the case of Loans in any Alternative Currency, at the option of the Company, either (x) be repaid on the last day of the then-current Interest Period with respect thereto or (y) be converted into Base Rate Loans denominated in U.S. Dollars on the last day of the then-current Interest Period with respect thereto, at the Spot Rate in effect on such day. Each Base Rate Loan made by a Lender which, but for the circumstances described in the foregoing sentence, would be a Eurocurrency Loan (an “Affected Loan”) shall remain outstanding for the period corresponding to the Borrowing of Eurocurrency Loans of which such Affected Loan would be a part absent such circumstances.

8.4    Funding Losses. The Company hereby agrees that upon demand by any Lender (which demand shall be accompanied by a statement setting forth the basis for the amount being claimed, a copy of which shall be furnished to the Administrative Agent), the Company will indemnify such Lender against any net loss or expense which such Lender may sustain or incur (including any net loss or expense incurred by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds acquired by such Lender to fund or maintain any Eurocurrency Loan, CDOR Loan or BBR Loan), as reasonably determined by such Lender, as a result of (a) any payment, prepayment or conversion of any Eurocurrency Loan, CDOR Loan or BBR Loan of such Lender on a date other than the last day of an Interest Period for such Loan (including any conversion pursuant to Section 8.3) or (b) any failure of the Company to borrow, convert or continue any Loan on a date specified therefor in a notice of borrowing, conversion or continuation pursuant to this Agreement. For this purpose, all notices to the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Agreement shall be deemed to be irrevocable.

8.5    Right of Lenders to Fund through Other Offices. Each Lender may, if it so elects, fulfill its commitment as to any Eurocurrency Loan, CDOR Loan or BBR Loan by causing a foreign branch or Affiliate of such Lender to make such Loan; provided that in such event for the purposes of this Agreement such Loan shall be deemed to have been made by such Lender and the obligation of the Company to repay such Loan shall nevertheless be to such Lender and shall be deemed held by it, to the extent of such Loan, for the account of such branch or Affiliate.

8.6    Discretion of Lenders as to Manner of Funding. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, each Lender shall be entitled to fund and maintain its funding of all or any part of its Loans in any manner it sees fit, it being understood, however, that for the purposes of this Agreement all determinations hereunder shall be made as if such Lender had actually funded and maintained each Eurocurrency Loan during each Interest Period for such Loan through the purchase of deposits having a maturity corresponding to such Interest Period and bearing an interest rate equal to the LIBO Rate or EURIBO Rate, as applicable, for such Interest Period.






8.7    Mitigation of Circumstances; Replacement of Lenders.

(a)     Each Lender shall promptly notify the Company and the Administrative Agent of any event of which it has knowledge which will result in, and will use reasonable commercial efforts available to it (and not, in such Lender’s sole judgment, otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender) to mitigate or avoid, (i) any obligation by the Company to pay any amount pursuant to Section 7.6 or 8.1 or (ii) the occurrence of any circumstances described in Section 8.2 or 8.3 (and, if any Lender has given notice of any such event described in clause (i) or (ii) above and thereafter such event ceases to exist, such Lender shall promptly so notify the Company and the Administrative Agent). Without limiting the foregoing, each Lender will designate a different funding office if such designation will avoid (or reduce the cost to the Company of) any event described in clause (i) or (ii) above and such designation will not, in such Lender’s sole judgment, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender.

(b)    If the Company becomes obligated to pay additional amounts to any Lender pursuant to Section 7.6 or 8.1, or any Lender gives notice of the occurrence of any circumstances described in Section 8.2 or 8.3, the Company may designate another bank which is acceptable to the Administrative Agent and each Issuing Lender in their reasonable discretion (such other bank being called a “Replacement Lender”) to purchase the Loans of such Lender and such Lender’s rights hereunder, without recourse to or warranty by, or expense to, such Lender, for a purchase price equal to the outstanding principal amount of the Loans payable to such Lender plus any accrued but unpaid interest on such Loans and all accrued but unpaid fees owed to such Lender and any other amounts payable to such Lender under this Agreement, and to assume all the obligations of such Lender hereunder provided (i) in the case of any assignment resulting from a claim for payment under Section 7.6 or 8.1, such assignment will result in a reduction in such payments, (ii) such assignment does not conflict with applicable law and (iii) in the case of any assignment resulting from a Lender becoming a non-consenting Lender, the applicable assignee shall have consented to the applicable amendment, waiver or consent. Upon such purchase and assumption (pursuant to an Assignment Agreement), such Lender shall no longer be a party hereto or have any rights hereunder (other than rights with respect to indemnities and similar rights applicable to such Lender prior to the date of such purchase and assumption) and shall be relieved from all obligations to the Company hereunder, and the Replacement Lender shall succeed to the rights and obligations of such Lender hereunder.

8.8    Conclusiveness of Statements. Determinations and statements of any Lender or the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 8.1, 8.2, 8.3 or 8.4 shall be conclusive absent demonstrable error. Lenders may use reasonable averaging and attribution methods in determining compensation under Sections 8.1 and 8.4.

SECTION 9REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES.

The provisions of this Section 14 (other than as expressly provided herein) are solely for the benefit of the Agents and the Lenders and no Loan Party shall have any rights as a third party beneficiary of any of the provisions of this Section 14 (other than as expressly provided herein). In performing its functions and duties hereunder, each Agent shall act solely as an agent of the Lenders and does not assume and shall not be deemed to have assumed any obligation towards or relationship of agency or trust with or for the Company or any of its Subsidiaries. Each of the Syndication Agents and the Documentation Agents, without consent of or notice to any party hereto, may assign any and all of its rights or obligations hereunder to any of its Affiliates. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement or any provision of any other Loan Document, each of the Joint Lead Arrangers, the Syndication Agents, the Documentation Agents and the Joint Bookrunners are named as such for recognition purposes only, and in their respective capacities as such shall have no duties, responsibilities or liabilities with respect to this Agreement or any other Loan Document; it being understood and agreed that each of the Joint Lead Arrangers, the Syndication Agents, the Documentation Agents and the Joint Bookrunners shall be entitled to all indemnification and reimbursement rights in favor of the Agents provided herein and in the other Loan Documents and all of the other benefits of this Section 14.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing sentence, the use of the term “agent” in this Agreement and in the other Loan Documents with reference to any Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under the agency doctrine of any applicable Law. Instead, such term is used merely as a matter of market custom, and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between independent contracting parties.

14.3    General Immunity.

14.3.1    No Responsibility for Certain Matters. No Agent shall be responsible to any Lender for the execution, effectiveness, genuineness, validity, enforceability, collectability or sufficiency hereof or any other Loan Document, or for any representations, warranties, recitals or statements made herein or therein or made in any written or oral statements or in any financial or other statements, instruments, reports or certificates or any other documents furnished or made by any Agent to the Lenders or by or on behalf of any Loan Party or to any Agent or Lender in connection with the Loan Documents and the transactions contemplated thereby or for the financial condition or business affairs of any Loan Party or any other Person liable for the payment of any Obligations, nor shall any Agent be required to ascertain or inquire as to the performance or observance of any of the terms, conditions, provisions, covenants or agreements contained in any of the Loan Documents or as to the use of the proceeds of the Loans or as to the existence or possible existence of any Event of Default or Unmatured Event of Default or as to the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Section 12 or elsewhere herein (other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to such Agent) or to inspect the properties, books or records of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or to make any disclosures with respect to the foregoing.

No Agent nor any of its officers, partners, directors, employees or agents shall be liable to the Lenders (i) for any action taken or omitted by any Agent (A) under or in connection with any of the Loan Documents or (B) with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders (or, if so specified by this Agreement, all Lenders or any other instructing group of Lenders specified by this Agreement) except to the extent caused by such Agent’s gross negligence or willful misconduct, as





determined by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction or (ii) for any failure of any Loan Party to perform its obligations under this Agreement or any other Loan Document. No Agent shall, except as expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents, have any duty to disclose or be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to the Company or any of its Affiliates that is communicated to or obtained by such Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity. Each Agent shall be entitled to refrain from any act or the taking of any action (including the failure to take an action) in connection herewith or any of the other Loan Documents or from the exercise of any power, discretion or authority vested in it hereunder or thereunder unless and until such Agent shall have received instructions in respect thereof from the Required Lenders (or such other Lenders as may be required to give such instructions under Section 15.1) and, upon receipt of such instructions from the Required Lenders (or such other Lenders, as the case may be), such Agent shall be entitled to act or (where so instructed) refrain from acting, or to exercise such power, discretion or authority, in accordance with such instructions and shall not be required to take any action that, in its opinion or the opinion of its counsel, may expose such Agent to liability or that is contrary to any Loan Document or applicable Law.

14.3.3    Delegation of Duties. The Administrative Agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers under this Agreement or under any other Loan Document by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by it.

All of the rights, benefits, and privileges (including the exculpatory and indemnification provisions) of this Section 14.3 and of Section 14.6 shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Affiliates of any such sub-agent, and shall apply to their respective activities as sub-agent as if such sub--agent and Affiliates were named herein.

The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any sub-agents except to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction determines in a final and nonappealable judgment that the Administrative Agent acted with gross negligence or willful misconduct in the selection of such sub-agents.

14.3.4    Notice of Unmatured Event of Default or Event of Default. No Agent shall be deemed to have knowledge of any Unmatured Event of Default or Event of Default unless and until written notice describing such Unmatured Event of Default or Event of Default is given to such Agent by a Loan Party or a Lender. In the event that the Administrative Agent shall receive such a notice, the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Lenders; provided that failure to give such notice shall not result in any liability on the part of the Administrative Agent.

14.4    Agents Entitled to Act as Lender. The agency hereby created shall in no way impair or affect any of the rights and powers of, or impose any duties or obligations upon, any Agent in its individual capacity as a Lender hereunder. With respect to its participation in the Loans and the Letters of Credit, each Agent shall have the same





rights and powers hereunder in its capacity as a Lender as any other Lender and may exercise the same as if it were not performing the duties and functions delegated to it hereunder, and the term “Lender” shall, unless the context clearly otherwise indicates, include each Agent in its individual capacity. Any Agent and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, own securities of, and generally engage in any kind of banking, trust, financial advisory or other business with the Company or any of its Affiliates as if it were not performing the duties specified herein, and may accept fees and other consideration from the Company for services in connection herewith and otherwise without having to account for the same to Lenders. The Lenders acknowledge that pursuant to such activities, the Agents or their Affiliates may receive information regarding any Loan Party or any Affiliate of any Loan Party (including information that may be subject to confidentiality obligations in favor of such Loan Party or such Affiliate) and acknowledge that the Agents and their Affiliates shall be under no obligation to provide such information to them.

14.5    Lenders’ Representations, Warranties and Acknowledgment.

(a)    Each Lender represents and warrants that it has made its own independent investigation of the financial condition and affairs of the Company and its Subsidiaries in connection with the making of Loans or the issuing or renewal of a Letter of Credit hereunder and that it has made and shall continue to make its own appraisal of the creditworthiness of the Company and its Subsidiaries. No Agent shall have any duty or responsibility, either initially or on a continuing basis, to make any such investigation or any such appraisal on behalf of Lenders or to provide any Lender with any credit or other information with respect thereto, whether coming into its possession before the making of the Loans or at any time or times thereafter, and no Agent shall have any responsibility with respect to the accuracy of or the completeness of any information provided to Lenders.

(b)    Each Lender, by delivering its signature page to the 2019 Amendment and Restatement Agreement or an Assignment Agreement, as applicable, shall be deemed to have acknowledged receipt of, and consented to and approved, each Loan Document and each other document required to be approved by any Agent, Required Lenders or Lenders, as applicable on the 2019 Restatement Effective Date or as of the date of funding of such Incremental Term Loans or providing such Commitment Increase.

14.6    Right to Indemnity. Each Lender, in proportion to its Pro Rata Share, severally agrees to indemnify each Agent, Issuing Lender and Swing Line Lender, to the extent that such Agent, Issuing Lender or Swing Line Lender shall not have been reimbursed by any Loan Party (and without limiting its obligation to do so), for and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses (including legal counsel fees and disbursements) or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against such Agent, Issuing Lender or Swing Line Lender in exercising its powers, rights and remedies or performing its duties hereunder or under the other Loan Documents or otherwise in its capacity as such Agent in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents; provided, that no Lender shall be liable for any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting from such Agent’s, Issuing Lender’s or Swing Line Lender’s, as applicable, gross negligence or willful misconduct, as determined by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. If any indemnity furnished to any Agent, Issuing Lender or Swing Line Lender, for any purpose shall, in the opinion of such Agent, Issuing Lender or Swing Line Lender, as applicable, be insufficient or become impaired, such Agent, Issuing Lender or Swing Line Lender, as applicable, may call for additional indemnity and cease, or not commence, to do the acts indemnified against until such additional indemnity is furnished; provided, that in no event shall this sentence require any Lender to indemnify any Agent, Issuing Lender or Swing Line Lender against any liability, obligation, loss, damage, penalty, action, judgment, suit, cost, expense or disbursement in excess of such Lender’s Pro Rata Share thereof; and provided, further, that this sentence shall not be deemed to require any Lender to indemnify any Agent, Issuing Lender or Swing Line Lender against any liability, obligation, loss, damage, penalty, action, judgment, suit, cost, expense or disbursement described in the proviso in the immediately preceding sentence.

14.7    Successor Administrative Agent, Issuing Lender and Swing Line Lender.

(a)    The Administrative Agent shall have the right to resign at any time by giving prior written notice thereof to the Lenders and the Company. The Administrative Agent shall have the right to appoint a financial institution to act as the Administrative Agent hereunder, subject to the reasonable satisfaction of the Company and the Required Lenders, and the Administrative Agent’s resignation shall become effective on the earlier of (i) the acceptance of such successor Administrative Agent





by the Company and the Required Lenders or (ii) the thirtieth day after such notice of resignation. Upon any such notice of resignation, if a successor Administrative Agent has not already been appointed by the retiring Administrative Agent, the Required Lenders shall have the right, upon five Business Days’ notice to the Company, to appoint a successor Administrative Agent. If neither the Required Lenders nor the Administrative Agent has appointed a successor Administrative Agent, then the Required Lenders shall be deemed to have succeeded to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Administrative Agent. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as the Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor Administrative Agent, that successor Administrative Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Administrative Agent and the retiring Administrative Agent shall promptly transfer to such successor Administrative Agent all records and other documents necessary or appropriate in connection with the performance of the duties of the successor Administrative Agent under the Loan Documents, whereupon such retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. After any retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation hereunder as the Administrative Agent, the provisions of this Section 14 shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was the Administrative Agent hereunder.

(b)    Any resignation of Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, or its successor as the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 14.7 shall also constitute the resignation of Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, or its successor as an Issuing Lender and the Swing Line Lender, and any successor Administrative Agent appointed pursuant to this Section shall, upon its acceptance of such appointment, become a successor Issuing Lender and the successor Swing Line Lender for all purposes hereunder. In such event the Company shall prepay any outstanding Swing Line Loans made by the retiring Administrative Agent in its capacity as Swing Line Lender.

14.8    Withholding Taxes. To the extent required by any applicable Law, the Administrative Agent may withhold from any payment to any Lender an amount equivalent to any applicable withholding tax. If the Internal Revenue Service or any other Governmental Authority asserts a claim that the Administrative Agent did not properly withhold tax from amounts paid to or for the account of any Lender because the appropriate form was not delivered or was not properly executed or because such Lender failed to notify the Administrative Agent of a change in circumstance which rendered the exemption from, or reduction of, withholding tax ineffective or for any other reason, such Lender shall indemnify the Administrative Agent fully for all amounts paid, directly or indirectly, by the Administrative Agent as tax or otherwise, including any penalties or interest and together with all expenses (including Attorney Costs and out-of-pocket expenses) incurred.

14.9    Administrative Agent May File Proofs of Claim. In case of the pendency of any proceeding under the Bankruptcy Code or other applicable Law or any other judicial proceeding relative to any Loan Party, the Administrative Agent (irrespective of whether the principal of any Loan shall then be due and payable as herein expressed or by declaration or otherwise and irrespective of whether the Administrative Agent shall have made any demand on the Company) shall be entitled and empowered, by intervention in such proceeding or otherwise (a) to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of the principal and interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Loans and all other Obligations that are owing and unpaid and to file such other documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Lenders (including Attorney Costs) allowed in such judicial proceeding and (b) to collect and receive any monies or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same. Any custodian, receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator, sequestrator or other similar official in any such judicial proceeding is hereby authorized by each Lender to make such payments to the Administrative Agent. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to authorize the Administrative Agent to authorize or consent to or accept or adopt on behalf of any Lender any plan of reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition affecting the Obligations or the rights of any Lender or to authorize the Administrative Agent to vote in respect of the claim of such Person or in any such proceeding.

SECTION 15GENERAL.

15.1    Waiver; Amendments. No delay on the part of the Administrative Agent or any Lender in the exercise of any right, power or remedy shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise by any of them of any right, power or remedy preclude other or further exercise thereof, or the exercise of any other right, power or remedy. Except as contemplated by Section 2.1.2(c) or 15.1.1, no amendment, modification or waiver of, or consent with respect to, any provision of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents shall in any event be effective unless





the same shall be in writing and acknowledged by Lenders having an aggregate Pro Rata Shares of not less than the aggregate Pro Rata Shares expressly designated herein with respect thereto or, in the absence of such designation as to any provision of this Agreement, by the Required Lenders, and then any such amendment, modification, waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given. No amendment, modification, waiver or consent shall (a) extend or increase the Commitment of any Lender without the written consent of such Lender, (b) extend the date scheduled for payment of any principal (excluding mandatory prepayments) of or interest on the Loans or any fees payable hereunder without the written consent of each Lender directly affected thereby, (c) reduce the principal amount of any Loan, the rate of interest thereon or any fees payable hereunder (except for periodic adjustments of interest rates and fees based on a change in applicable Level as expressly provided herein), without the consent of each Lender directly affected thereby, (d) change the definition of Required Lenders or any provision of this Section 15.1, or reduce the aggregate Pro Rata Share required to effect an amendment, modification, waiver or consent, without, in each case, the written consent of all Lenders; (e) change Section 7.5 in a manner that would alter the pro rata sharing of payments required thereby without the written consent of each Lender directly affected thereby or (f) release any guarantor from its guarantee of the Obligations without the written consent of each Lender. No provision of Section 14 or other provision of this Agreement affecting the Administrative Agent in its capacity as such shall be amended, modified or waived without the consent of the Administrative Agent. No provision of this Agreement relating to the rights or duties of an Issuing Lender in its capacity as such shall be amended, modified or waived without the consent of such Issuing Lender. No provision of this Agreement relating to the rights or duties of the Swing Line Lender in its capacity as such, shall be amended, modified or waived without the consent of the Swing Line Lender.

15.1.1    Extension Offers.

(a)    The Company may on one or more occasions after the 2019 Restatement Effective Date, by written notice to the Administrative Agent, make one or more offers (each, an “Extension Offer”) to all the Lenders of one or more classes (each class subject to such an Extension Offer, an “Extension Request Class”) to enter into one or more Extension Permitted Amendments pursuant to procedures reasonably specified by the Administrative Agent and reasonably acceptable to the Company. Such notice shall set forth (i) the terms and conditions of the requested Extension Permitted Amendment(s) and (ii) the date on which such Extension Permitted Amendment(s) are requested to become effective (which shall not be less than 5 Business Days nor more than 30 Business Days after the date of such notice, unless otherwise agreed to by the Administrative Agent). Extension Permitted Amendments shall become effective only with respect to the Loans and Commitments of the Lenders of the Extension Request Class that accept the applicable Extension Offer (such Lenders, the “Extending Lenders”) and, in the case of any Extending Lender, only with respect to such Lender’s Loans and Commitments of such Extension Request Class as to which such Lender’s acceptance has been made. The Company shall have the right to withdraw any Extension Offer upon written notice to the Administrative Agent in the event that the aggregate amount of Loans and Commitments of the Extending Lenders is less than the aggregate amount specified by the Company in the Extension Offer to be extended.

(b)    An Extension Permitted Amendment shall be effected pursuant to an Extension Agreement executed and delivered by the Company, each applicable Extending Lender and the Administrative Agent; provided that no Extension Permitted Amendment shall become effective unless (i) no Unmatured Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing on the date of effectiveness thereof, (ii) on the date of effectiveness thereof, the representations and warranties of each Loan Party set forth in the Loan Documents shall be true and correct (A) in the case of the representations and warranties qualified as to materiality, in all respects, and (B) otherwise, in all material respects, in each case on and as of such date, except in the case of any such representation and warranty that specifically relates to an earlier date, in which case such representation and warranty shall be so true and correct on and as of such earlier date, and (iii) the Company shall have delivered to the Administrative Agent such customary legal opinions, board resolutions, secretary’s certificates, officer’s certificates and other customary documents as shall reasonably be requested by the Administrative Agent in connection therewith. The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender as to the effectiveness of each Extension Agreement. Each Extension Agreement may, without the consent of any Lender other than the applicable Extending Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the opinion of the Administrative Agent, to give effect to the provisions of this Section, including any amendments necessary to treat the applicable Loans and/or Commitments of the accepting





Lenders as a new “class” of loans and/or commitments hereunder; provided that, except as otherwise agreed to by each Issuing Lender and the Swing Line Lender, (i) the allocation of the participation exposure with respect to any then-existing or subsequently issued or made Letter of Credit or Swing Line Loan as between the commitments of such new “class” and the remaining Commitments shall be made on a ratable basis as between the commitments of such new “class” and the remaining Commitments and (ii) the Termination Date, as such term is used in reference to Letters of Credit or Swing Line Loans, may not be extended without the prior written consent of each Issuing Lender and the Swing Line Lender, as applicable.

15.2    Notices.

Except as otherwise provided in Sections 2.2.2 and 2.2.3, all notices hereunder shall be in writing (including facsimile transmission) and shall be sent to the applicable party at (i) in the case of the Company, the Administrative Agent, any Issuing Lender or the Swing Line Lender, its address shown on Annex B or at such other address as such party may, by written notice received by the other parties, have designated as its address for such purpose or (ii) in the case of any Lender, its address specified in an administrative questionnaire in the form supplied by the Administrative Agent.

The Administrative Agent or the Company may, in its discretion, agree to accept notices and other communications to it hereunder by electronic communications pursuant to procedures approved by it; provided, further, that approval of such procedures may be limited to particular notices or communications. Unless the Administrative Agent otherwise prescribes, (i) notices and other communications sent to an e-mail address shall be deemed received upon the sender’s receipt of an acknowledgement from the intended recipient (such as by the “return receipt requested” function, as available, return e-mail or other written acknowledgement); provided, that if such notice or other communication is not sent during the normal business hours of the recipient, such notice or communication shall be deemed to have been sent at the opening of business on the next Business Day for the recipient and (ii) notices or communications posted to an Internet or intranet website shall be deemed received upon the deemed receipt by the intended recipient at its e-mail address as described in the foregoing clause (i) of notification that such notice or communication is available and identifying the website address therefor.

(c)    The Platform and any Approved Electronic Communications are provided “as is” and “as available”. None of the Agents nor any of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, advisors or representatives (the “Agent Affiliates”) warrant the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of the Approved Electronic Communications or the Platform and each expressly disclaims liability for errors or omissions in the Platform and the Approved Electronic Communications. No warranty of any kind, express, implied or statutory, including any warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement of third party rights or freedom from viruses or other code defects is made by the Agent Affiliates in connection with the Platform or the Approved Electronic Communications. Each party hereto agrees that no Agent has any responsibility for maintaining or providing any equipment, software, services or any testing required in connection with any Approved Electronic Communication or otherwise required for the Platform. In no event shall





any Agent nor any of the Agent Affiliates have any liability to any Loan Party, any Lender or any other Person for damages of any kind, whether or not based on strict liability and including direct or indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages, losses or expenses (whether in tort, contract or otherwise) arising out of any Loan Party’s or any Agent’s transmission of communications through the internet.

(e)    All uses of the Platform shall be governed by and subject to, in addition to this Section 15.2, separate terms and conditions posted or referenced in such Platform and related agreements executed by the Lenders and their Affiliates in connection with the use of such Platform.

15.3    Computations. All accounting terms not specifically or completely defined herein shall be construed in conformity with GAAP. No change in GAAP after the 2019 Restatement Effective Date will affect the computation of any financial ratio or requirement set forth in any Loan Document; provided that in the event of any such change that would affect such computations, either the Company or the Required Lenders may request that the Administrative Agent and the Company negotiate in good faith to amend such ratio or requirement to preserve the original intent thereof in light of such change in GAAP (subject to the approval of the Required Lenders and the Company); provided that, until so amended, (i) such ratio or requirement shall continue to be computed in accordance with GAAP prior to such change therein and (ii) the Company shall provide to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders financial statements and other documents required under this Agreement or as reasonably requested hereunder setting forth a reconciliation between calculations of such ratio or requirement made before and after giving effect to such change in GAAP.

The Company agrees to pay on written demand all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses of the Administrative Agent (including Attorney Costs) in connection with the preparation, execution, syndication, delivery and administration (including the costs of Intralinks (or other similar service), if applicable) of this Agreement, the other Loan Documents and all other documents provided for herein or delivered or to be delivered hereunder or in connection herewith (including any amendment, supplement or waiver to any Loan Document), whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby shall be consummated, and all reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including Attorney Costs) incurred by the Administrative Agent and each Lender after an Event of Default in connection with the collection of the Obligations or the enforcement of this Agreement, the other Loan Documents or any such other documents or during any workout, restructuring or negotiations in respect thereof; provided that Attorney Costs shall be limited to the reasonable and documented out-of-pocket fees, disbursements and other charges of one counsel to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders (taken as a whole) or all indemnified parties (taken as a whole), as the case may be, and, if reasonably necessary, a single local counsel for the Administrative Agent and the Lenders (taken as a whole) or all indemnified parties (taken as a whole), as the case may be, in each relevant jurisdiction and with respect to each relevant specialty, and in the case of an actual or perceived conflict of interest, one additional counsel in each relevant jurisdiction to the affected indemnified parties similarly situated and taken as a whole). In addition, the Company agrees to pay, and to save the Administrative Agent and the Lenders harmless from all liability for, any fees of the Company’s auditors in connection with any reasonable exercise by the Administrative Agent and the Lenders of their rights pursuant to Section 10.2.

15.5    Assignments; Participations.

15.5.1    Assignments. (a) Any Lender may at any time assign all or any portion of such Lender’s Loans and Commitments (i) to any Person meeting the criteria of clause (i) of the definition of the term of “Eligible Assignee” upon the giving of notice to the Company and the Administrative Agent and upon such Person being consented to by each Issuing Lender (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed); and (ii) to any Person meeting the criteria of clause (ii) of the definition of the term of “Eligible Assignee” upon such Person (except in the case of assignments made by or to any Joint Bookrunner or any of its Affiliates) being consented to by each of the Company, the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Lender and the Swing Line Lender (such consents not to be (x) unreasonably withheld or delayed or (y) in the case of the Company, required at any time an Event of Default under clauses (a) or (c) of Section 13.1 has occurred and is continuing).






Any such assignment (other than to another Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an approved fund) shall be in an amount of an integral multiple of $5,000,000 (or lesser amounts if agreed by the Company and the Administrative Agent) or, if less, the remaining Commitments and Loans held by the assigning Lender. The Company and the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with the interests so assigned to such Person (an “Assignee”) until the Administrative Agent shall have received and accepted an effective assignment agreement in substantially the form of Exhibit C hereto (an “Assignment Agreement”) executed, delivered and fully completed by the applicable parties thereto and a processing fee of $3,500 (except that no such registration and processing fee shall be payable in the case of an assignee which is already a Lender or is an Affiliate of a Lender or a Person under common management with a Lender). Any attempted assignment not made in accordance with this Section 15.5.1 shall be treated as the sale of a participation under Section 15.5.2. The Company shall be deemed to have granted its consent to any assignment requiring its consent hereunder unless the Company has expressly objected to such assignment within five Business Days after notice thereof.
(b)    From and after the date on which the conditions described above have been met (such date, the “Assignment Date”), (i) such Assignee shall be deemed automatically to have become a party hereto and, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned to such Assignee pursuant to such Assignment Agreement, shall have the rights and obligations of a Lender hereunder and (ii) the assigning Lender, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned by it pursuant to such Assignment Agreement, shall be released from its rights (other than its indemnification rights) and obligations hereunder. Upon the request of the Assignee (and, as applicable, the assigning Lender) pursuant to an effective Assignment Agreement, the Company shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent for delivery to the Assignee (and, as applicable, the assigning Lender) a Note in the principal amount of the Assignee’s Pro Rata Share of the Commitment (and, as applicable, a Note in the principal amount of the Pro Rata Share of the Commitment retained by the assigning Lender). Each such Note shall be dated the effective date of such assignment. Upon receipt by the assigning Lender of such Note, the assigning Lender shall return to the Company any prior Note held by it.

(c)    Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank, and this Section 15.5.1 shall not apply to any such pledge or assignment of a security interest; provided that no such pledge or assignment of a security interest shall release a Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.

15.5.2    Participations. Any Lender may at any time sell to one or more Persons (other than a natural Person, a Loan Party or an Affiliate of a Loan Party) participating interests in its Loans, Commitments or other interests hereunder (any such Person, a “Participant”). In the event of a sale by a Lender of a participating interest to a Participant, (a) such Lender’s obligations hereunder shall remain unchanged for all purposes, (b) the Company and the Administrative Agent shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations hereunder and (c) all amounts payable by the Company shall be determined as if such Lender had not sold such participation and shall be paid directly to such Lender. No Participant shall have any direct or indirect voting rights hereunder except with respect to any event described in Section 15.1 expressly requiring the unanimous vote of all Lenders or, as applicable, all affected Lenders. The Company agrees that if amounts outstanding under this Agreement are due and payable (as a result of acceleration or otherwise), each Participant shall be deemed to have the right of set-off in respect of its participating interest in amounts owing under this Agreement and with respect to any Letter of Credit to the same extent as if the amount of its participating interest were owing directly to it as a Lender under this Agreement; provided that such right of set-off shall be subject to the obligation of each Participant to share with the Lenders, and the Lenders agree to share with each Participant, as provided in Section 7.5. The Company also agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 7.6 or Section 8 as if it were a Lender (provided that on the date of the sale of participation no Participant shall be entitled to any greater compensation pursuant to Section 7.6 or Section 8 than would have been paid to the participating Lender on such date if no participation had been sold and that each Participant complies with Section 7.6(d) as if it were an Assignee). Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Company, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each





Participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under the Loan Documents (the “Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant’s interest in any commitments, loans, letters of credit or its other obligations under any Loan Document) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such commitment, loan, letter of credit or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations. The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, the Administrative Agent (in its capacity as the Administrative Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.

15.5.3    Resignation as Issuing Lender after Assignment. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if at any time any Issuing Lender assigns all of its Commitment (excluding its commitment to issue Letters of Credit) and Loans pursuant to Section 15.5.1, the applicable Issuing Lender may, upon 30 days' prior written notice to the Company and the Administrative Agent, resign as Issuing Lender. In such event, the Company shall be entitled to appoint a Lender who agrees to be a successor Issuing Lender hereunder. If an Issuing Lender ceases to be an Issuing Lender pursuant to this Section 15.5.3, it shall retain all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of an Issuing Lender hereunder with respect to all Letters of Credit outstanding as of the effective date of such Issuing Lender's resignation and all L/C Exposure with respect thereto (including the right to require the Lenders to make Base Rate Loans pursuant to Section 2.3.2 and to fund participations in unreimbursed disbursements under Letters of Credit pursuant to Section 2.3.4).

15.6    Register. The Administrative Agent, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of the Company, shall maintain at its Principal Office a copy of each Assignment Agreement delivered and accepted by it and register (the “Register”) for the recordation of names and addresses of the Lenders and the Commitment of, and principal amounts (and related interest amounts) owing to, each Lender from time to time and whether such Lender is the original Lender or the Assignee. No assignment shall be effective unless and until the Assignment Agreement is accepted and registered in the Register. All records of transfer of a Lender’s interest in the Register shall be conclusive, absent manifest error, as to the ownership of the interests in the Loans. The Administrative Agent shall not incur any liability of any kind with respect to any Lender with respect to the maintenance of the Register. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Company or any Lender (with respect to any entry relating to such Lender’s Loans) at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.

15.7    Governing Law. THIS AGREEMENT AND THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES HEREUNDER SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND SHALL BE CONSTRUED AND ENFORCED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICT OF LAW PRINCIPLES THAT WOULD RESULT IN THE APPLICATION OF ANY LAW OTHER THAN THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

15.8    Confidentiality. As required by federal law and the Administrative Agent’s policies and practices, the Administrative Agent may need to obtain, verify, and record certain customer identification information and documentation in connection with opening or maintaining accounts, or establishing or continuing to provide services. The Administrative Agent and each Lender (which term shall, for the purposes of this Section 15.8, include each Issuing Lender) agree to maintain, using efforts the Administrative Agent or such Lender applies to maintain the confidentiality of its own confidential information, as confidential all information provided to them by any Loan Party, except that the Administrative Agent and each Lender may disclose such information (a) to its Affiliates and the partners, directors, officers, employees, agents, trustees, administrators, managers, advisors and representatives of the Administrative Agent, such Lender or such Affiliate on a “need to know” basis (it being understood that the Persons to whom such disclosure is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Information and instructed to keep such Information confidential); (b) to any assignee or participant or potential assignee or participant that has agreed to comply with the covenant contained in this Section 15.8 (and any such assignee or participant or potential assignee or participant may disclose such information to Persons employed or engaged by them as described in clause (a) above); (c) as required or requested by any federal or state regulatory authority or examiner, or any insurance industry association, or as reasonably believed by the Administrative Agent or such Lender to be compelled by any court decree, subpoena or legal or administrative order or process; (d) as, on the advice of the Administrative Agent’s or such Lender’s counsel, is required by Law; (e) in connection with the exercise of any right or remedy under the Loan Documents or in connection with any litigation to which the Administrative Agent or such Lender is a party;





(f) to any nationally recognized rating agency that requires access to information about a Lender’s investment portfolio in connection with ratings issued with respect to such Lender; (g) to any Affiliate of the Administrative Agent or each Issuing Lender (it being understood that the Persons to whom such disclosure is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Information and instructed to keep such Information confidential); (h) on a confidential basis to (i) any rating agency in connection with rating the Company or its Subsidiaries or the facilities provided for in this Agreement or (ii) the CUSIP Service Bureau or any similar agency in connection with the issuance and monitoring of CUSIP numbers with respect to the facilities provided for in this Agreement; or (i) that ceases to be confidential through no fault of the Administrative Agent or any Lender or any of their Affiliates. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company consents to the publication by the Administrative Agent or any Lender of a tombstone or similar advertising material relating to the financing transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and the Administrative Agent reserves the right to provide to industry trade organizations information necessary and customary for inclusion in league table measurements.

15.9    Severability. Whenever possible each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable Law, but if any provision of this Agreement shall be prohibited by or invalid under applicable Law, such provision shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of this Agreement. All obligations of the Company and rights of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders expressed herein or in any other Loan Document shall be in addition to and not in limitation of those provided by applicable Law.

15.10    Nature of Remedies. All Obligations of the Company and rights of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders expressed herein or in any other Loan Document shall be in addition to and not in limitation of those provided by applicable Law. No failure to exercise and no delay in exercising, on the part of the Administrative Agent or any Lender, any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder, shall operate as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power or privilege.

15.11    Entire Agreement. This Agreement, together with the other Loan Documents, embodies the entire agreement and understanding among the parties hereto and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements and understandings of such Persons, verbal or written, relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof (except as relates to the fees described in Section 5.3 and any prior arrangements made with respect to the payment by the Company of (or any indemnification for) any fees, costs or expenses payable to or incurred (or to be incurred) by or on behalf of the Administrative Agent or the Lenders).

The Administrative Agent, the Lenders and their respective Affiliates may be engaged, for their own accounts or the accounts of customers, in a broad range of transactions that involve interests that differ from those of the Company and its Affiliates, and neither the Administrative Agent or any Lender has any obligation to disclose any of such interests to the Company or its Affiliates.

15.22    Judgment Currency. If, for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court, it is necessary to convert a sum due hereunder or any other Loan Document in one currency into another currency, the rate of exchange used shall be that at which in accordance with normal banking procedures the Administrative Agent, a Lender or an Issuing Lender, as applicable, could purchase the first currency with such other currency on the Business Day preceding that on which final judgment is given. The obligation of the Company in respect of any such sum due from it to the Administrative Agent or any Lender or Issuing Lender hereunder or under the other Loan Documents shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency (the “Judgment Currency”) other than that in which such sum is denominated in accordance with the applicable provisions of this Agreement (the “Agreement Currency”), be discharged only to the extent that on the Business Day following receipt by the Administrative Agent or such Lender or Issuing Lender, as the case may be, of any sum adjudged to be so due in the Judgment Currency, the Administrative Agent or such Lender or Issuing Lender, as the case may be, may in accordance with normal banking procedures purchase the Agreement Currency with the Judgment Currency. If the amount of the Agreement Currency so purchased is less than the sum originally due to the Administrative Agent or any Lender or Issuing Lender from the Company in the Agreement Currency, the Company agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify the Administrative Agent or such Lender or Issuing Lender, as the case may be, against such loss. If the amount of the Agreement Currency so purchased is greater than the sum originally due to the Administrative Agent or any Lender or Issuing Lender in such currency, the Administrative Agent or such Lender or Issuing Lender, as the case may be, agrees to return the amount of any excess to the Company.
