Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 19, 2020 (the “Closing Date”), we entered into a $225.0 million senior secured loan agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), with Oaktree Fund Administration, LLC (“Oaktree”) as administrative agent, and the lenders party thereto. The first tranche of loans borrowed by us is in an aggregate principal amount of $100.0 million and consists of $89,886,946 of term loans funded on the Closing Date and $10,113,054 of term loans that will be funded ten days after the Closing Date. A portion of the proceeds of the first tranche of loans were used to repay in full our existing senior secured loan with Perceptive Credit Holdings II, LP. The remaining term loan commitments under the Loan Agreement may be borrowed from time to time prior to the date that is either 24 or 36 months after the Closing Date, as applicable, subject to the satisfaction of certain regulatory and commercial milestones.

The senior secured loans under the Loan Agreement mature on the sixth anniversary from the Closing Date, and bear interest at a fixed annual rate of 11.0%, payable quarterly. We are required to make quarterly interest-only payments until the second anniversary of the Closing Date, after which we are required to make quarterly amortizing payments, with the remaining balance of the principal plus accrued and unpaid interest due at maturity. After the date that is 90 days after the Closing Date, we will be required to pay a commitment fee on any undrawn commitments equal to 0.6% per annum, payable on each subsequent funding date and the commitment termination date. We are also required to pay an exit fee at maturity equal to 2.0% of the aggregate principal amount of the loans funded under the Loan Agreement.

We may voluntarily prepay the Loan Agreement at any time subject to a prepayment premium which up until the second anniversary of the Closing Date is equal to the amount of interest that would have been paid up to, but not including, the second anniversary date (excluding interest amounts already paid), plus 3.0% of the principal amount of the senior secured loans being repaid. Thereafter, the prepayment premium equals 3.0% of the principal amount of the senior secured loans being repaid, and is reduced over time until the fourth anniversary date, after which no prepayment premium is required. We are required to make mandatory prepayments of the senior secured loans with net cash proceeds from certain asset sales or insurance proceeds or condemnation awards, in each case, subject to certain exceptions and reinvestment rights.

Our obligations under the Loan Agreement are guaranteed by us and certain of our existing domestic subsidiaries and subsequently acquired or organized subsidiaries subject to certain exceptions. Our obligations under the Loan Agreement and the related guarantees thereunder are secured, subject to customary permitted liens and other agreed upon exceptions, by (i) a pledge of all of the equity interests of our direct subsidiaries, and (ii) a perfected security interest in all of our tangible and intangible assets.

The Loan Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and customary affirmative and negative covenants, including, among other things, restrictions on indebtedness, liens, investments, mergers, dispositions, prepayment of other indebtedness, and dividends and other distributions, subject to certain exceptions, including specific exceptions with respect to product commercialization and development activities. In addition, the Loan Agreement contains certain financial covenants, including, among other things, maintenance of minimum liquidity and a minimum revenue test, measured quarterly until the last day of the second consecutive fiscal quarter where the consolidated leverage ratio does not exceed 4.5 to 1, provided that thereafter we cannot allow our consolidated leverage ratio to exceed 4.5 to 1, measured quarterly. Failure of the company to comply with the financial covenants will result in an event of default, subject to certain cure rights of the company.

The Loan Agreement contains events of default which are customary for financings of this type, in certain circumstances subject to customary cure periods. Following an event of default and any cure period, if applicable, Oaktree will have the right upon notice to terminate any undrawn commitments and may accelerate all amounts outstanding under the Loan Agreement, in addition to other remedies available to it as a secured creditor of the company.

In connection with the Loan Agreement, we granted warrants to Oaktree to purchase up to 908,393 shares of our common stock at a purchase price of $12.63 per share (the “Warrant”). The Warrants will expire on June 19, 2027 and may be net exercised at the holder’s election. We also agreed to file a registration statement on Form S-3 to register for resale the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants (“Warrant Shares”). The foregoing summary of the Warrants is not a complete description of the Warrants and is qualified in its entirety by the complete text of the Warrants, the form of which is filed as Exhibit 4.1 to this report.

WARRANT

NEITHER THIS WARRANT NOR THE SECURITIES ISSUABLE UPON ITS EXERCISE OR CONVERSION HAVE BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), OR ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAW AND MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED EXCEPT (I) IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SECURITIES ACT OR SUCH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS, PURSUANT TO REGISTRATION OR EXEMPTION THEREFROM, OR (II) WHERE, IN THE OPINION OF COUNSEL, REGISTRATION UNDER THE SECURITIES ACTS OR SUCH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS IS NOT REQUIRED IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH PROPOSED TRANSFER.

 

[•]Shares of Voting Common Stock    No. [•] WARRANT

This WARRANT (this “Warrant”) is issued as of June 19, 2020 (the “Initial Issuance Date”), by ATHENEX, INC., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), to [•], a [•] (“Purchaser” and, together with any assignee(s) or transferee(s), “Holder” or “Holders”).

WHEREAS, the Company, certain subsidiaries of the Company as guarantors, the Purchaser as lender and the other lenders party thereto, and Oaktree Fund Administration, LLC as administrative agent are parties to that certain Credit Agreement and Guaranty, dated as of June 19, 2020 (the “Credit Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company may borrow from Purchaser, and Purchaser may loan to the Company, up to $225,000,000 from the date of the Credit Agreement through the Maturity Date; and

WHEREAS, the Company is issuing this Warrant to Purchaser as a condition precedent to the making of the loans by Purchaser pursuant to the Credit Agreement.

NOW THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Company and Purchaser agree as follows:

Section 1. Definitions. Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms have the meanings set forth in the Credit Agreement (as in effect on the date hereof), however, the following terms when used herein have the following meanings:

Aggregate Exercise Price” means, in connection with any Exercise of this Warrant pursuant to Section 4 (whether in whole or in part), an amount equal to the product of (i) the number of Underlying Shares in respect of which this Warrant is then being exercised pursuant to such Section 4, multiplied by (ii) the Exercise Price.

Fair Market Value” means, with respect to any security or other property, the fair market value of such security or other property as determined by the independent members of the Board of Directors of the Company, acting in good faith. If the Holder objects in writing to the Board of Directors’ calculation of Fair Market Value within ten (10) days of receipt of written notice thereof and the Holder and the Company are unable to agree on Fair Market Value during the five (5) day period following the delivery of the Holder’s objection, the valuation dispute resolution procedure set forth in Section 21 hereof shall be invoked to determine Fair Market Value.


Market Price” means, with respect to a particular security, on any given day, the last reported sale price, regular way, or, in case no such reported sale takes place on such day, the average of the closing bid and asked prices, regular way, in either case on the principal national securities exchange on which the applicable securities are listed or admitted to trading, or if not listed or admitted to trading on any national securities exchange, the last quoted bid price in the over-the-counter market as reported by Pink Sheets LLC or similar organization. “Market Price” shall be determined without reference to after hours or extended hours trading. If such security is not listed and traded in a manner that the quotations referred to above are available for the period required hereunder, the Market Price per share of Voting Common Stock shall be deemed to be the fair market value per share of such security as determined in good faith by the independent members of the Board of Directors in reliance upon an opinion of an accounting firm of nationally recognized standing retained by the Company for this purpose and reasonably acceptable to the Holder (or if there is more than one Holder, a majority in interest of Holders excluding any Holder that is an Affiliate of the Company). For the purposes of determining the Market Price of the Voting Common Stock on the Trading Day preceding, on or following the occurrence of an event, (i) that Trading Day shall be deemed to commence immediately after the regular scheduled closing time of trading on the Trading Market on which the Voting Common Stock is listed or, if trading is closed at an earlier time, such earlier time and (ii) that Trading Day shall end at the next regular scheduled closing time, or if trading is closed at an earlier time, such earlier time (for the avoidance of doubt, and as an example, if the Market Price is to be determined as of the last Trading Day preceding a specified event and the closing time of trading on a particular day is 4:00 p.m. and the specified event occurs at 5:00 p.m. on that day, the Market Price would be determined by reference to such 4:00 p.m. closing price).

Trading Day” means a day on which the Voting Common Stock is traded on a Trading Market or, if the Voting Common Stock is not traded on a Trading Market, then on the principal securities exchange or securities market on which the Voting Common Stock is then traded.

Trading Market” means any market or exchange of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC or the New York Stock Exchange.

VWAP” means, for any date, the price determined by the first of the following clauses that applies: (i) if the Voting Common Stock is then listed or quoted on a Trading Market, the daily volume weighted average price of the Voting Common Stock for such date (or the nearest preceding date) on the Trading Market on which the Voting Common Stock is then listed or quoted as reported by Bloomberg L.P. (based on a Trading day from 9:30 a.m. (New York City time) to 4:00 pm (New York City time)), (ii) if the Voting Common Stock is not then listed on a Trading Market or quoted for trading on the OTC Bulletin Board and if prices for the Voting Common Stock are then reported in the “Pink Sheets” published by OTC Markets Group Inc. (or a similar organization or agency succeeding to its functions of reporting prices), the most recent bid price per share of the Voting Common Stock so reported or (iii) in all other cases, the fair market value of a share of Voting Common Stock as determined by an independent nationally recognized investment banking, accounting or valuation firm selected in good faith by the Company and reasonably acceptable to the Holder, the fees and expenses of which shall be paid by the Company.

Section 2. Issuance of Warrant; Term. For good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Company hereby grants to Holder the right to purchase from the Company [•] fully paid and nonassessable shares of the Company’s voting common stock having a par value $0.001 per share (the “Voting Common Stock”). The shares of Voting Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant are hereinafter referred to as the “Underlying Shares.” This Warrant shall be exercisable at any time and from time to time, in whole or in part, during the seven (7) year period commencing on the date hereof (the last day of this seven (7) year period is referred to as the “Expiration Date”).

Section 3. Exercise Price. The exercise price per share of Voting Common Stock for which each Underlying Share may be purchased pursuant to this Warrant shall be $12.63 (the “Exercise Price”), subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 7 hereof.

Section 4. Exercise.

(a) This Warrant may be exercised by the Holder hereof as to all or any portion of the Underlying Shares, upon delivery of written notice to the Company, together with this original Warrant and (x) payment to the Company of the Aggregate Exercise Price or (y) instruction to the Company to withhold a number of the Underlying Shares then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant with an aggregate value (determined on the basis of the average Market Price per share for the Voting Common Stock on the last five Trading Days for such stock immediately prior to the Exercise Date, as defined below) equal to (as nearly as possible without being less than) such Aggregate Exercise Price (collectively, the “Exercise”, with the date of an Exercise being an “Exercise Date”). The Exercise Price (if paid pursuant to clause (x) above) shall be payable by delivery by the Holder of a certified or official bank check payable to the order of the Company or wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated by the Company. This Warrant shall be deemed to have been so exercised as of the applicable Exercise Date, and the Holder shall be entitled to receive the Underlying Shares issuable upon such Exercise and be treated for all purposes as the holder of record of the Underlying Shares as of such date. Upon the Exercise of this Warrant, the Company shall, within two (2) Business Days of the Exercise Date (the “Underlying Share Delivery Date”), execute and deliver to the Holder of this Warrant (a) a statement confirming the total number of Underlying Shares for which this Warrant is being exercised, and (b) (i) if the Underlying Shares are issued in certificate form, a certificate or certificates for the number of Underlying Shares issuable upon such Exercise, or (ii) if the Underlying Shares are issued in uncertificated form, a written confirmation evidencing the book-entry registration of such Underlying Shares in the Holder’s name; provided that if the Company fails to deliver to Holder such certificate or certificates (in the case of Underlying Shares issued in certificate form) or written confirmation (in the case of Underlying Shares issued in uncertificated form) by the Underlying Share Delivery Date, the Holder will have the right to rescind such Exercise. Any rescission by the Holder pursuant to this Section 4(a) shall not affect any other remedies available to the Holder under applicable law or equity or pursuant to Section 13 hereof as a result of the Company’s failure to timely deliver the Underlying Shares. If this Warrant shall be exercised with respect to less than all of the Underlying Shares, the Company shall deliver a new Warrant covering the number of Underlying Shares in respect of which this Warrant shall not have been exercised, which new Warrant shall in all other respects be identical to this Warrant. The Company covenants and agrees that it will pay when due any and all state and federal issue taxes which may be payable in respect of the issuance of this Warrant or the issuance of any Underlying Shares upon exercise.

 

-3-


(b) In the event of any withholding of shares of Underlying Shares pursuant to Section 4(a)(y) above where the aggregate number of Underlying Shares equal to (as nearly as possible without being less than) the Aggregate Exercise Price is not a whole number, the number of the Underlying Shares withheld by or surrendered to the Company shall be rounded up to the nearest whole share, and the Company shall make a cash payment to the Holder (by delivery of a certified or official bank check or by wire transfer of immediately available funds) based on the incremental fraction of Underlying Shares being so withheld by or surrendered to the Company in an amount equal to the product of (x) such incremental fraction of Underlying Shares being so withheld or surrendered multiplied by (y) the value per share of Underlying Shares (determined on the basis of the Market Price per share for the Voting Common Stock immediately prior to the applicable Exercise).

(c) The Company shall not knowingly effect the exercise of this Warrant, and the Holder shall not have the right to exercise this Warrant to the extent that, after giving effect to such exercise, the Holder (together with such Person’s Affiliates) would beneficially own in excess of 9.99% (the “Maximum Percentage”) of the Voting Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such exercise. For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the aggregate number of shares of Voting Common Stock beneficially owned by such Person and its Affiliates shall include the number of shares of Voting Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant with respect to which the determination of such sentence is being made, but shall exclude shares of Voting Common Stock which would be issuable upon (i) exercise of the remaining, unexercised portion of this Warrant beneficially owned by such Person and its Affiliates and (ii) exercise or conversion of the unexercised or unconverted portion of any other securities of the Company beneficially owned by such Person and its Affiliates (including, without limitation, any convertible notes or convertible shares or warrants) subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitation contained herein. Except as set forth in the preceding sentence, for purposes of this paragraph, beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act. For purposes of this Warrant, in determining the number of outstanding shares of Voting Common Stock, a Holder of this Warrant may rely on the number of outstanding shares of Voting Common Stock as reflected in the most recent of (1) the Company’s Form 10-K, Form 10-Q or other public filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as the case may be, (2) a more recent public announcement by the Company or (3) any other notice by the Company or its transfer agent setting forth the number of shares of Voting Common Stock outstanding. Upon the written or oral request of a Holder, the Company shall, within five (5) Business Days, confirm to such Holder the number of shares of its Voting Common Stock then outstanding. Furthermore, upon the written or oral request of the Company, a Holder shall confirm to the Company its then current beneficial ownership with respect to the Company’s Voting Common Stock.

Section 5. No Fractional Shares. No fractional shares may be issued upon any exercise of this Warrant or as a consequence of any adjustment pursuant to Section 7, and any fractions shall be rounded upwards to the nearest whole number of shares. If upon any exercise or adjustment of this Warrant a fraction of a share results, the Company will pay to the Holder the cash value of any such fractional share, calculated on the basis of the Exercise Price.

Section 6. Securities Laws.

(a) Holder acknowledges that the Underlying Shares are being offered and sold by the Company in accordance with Regulation D under the Securities Act and that the Underlying Shares will constitute “restricted securities” as defined in Rule 144 under the Securities Act. Neither this Warrant nor the Underlying Shares have been registered under the Securities Act, or any state securities laws (“Blue Sky Laws”). This Warrant has been acquired for the Holder’s own account for investment purposes and not with a current view to distribution or resale and may not be sold or otherwise transferred (i) without an effective registration statement for such Warrant under the Securities Act and such applicable Blue Sky Laws, or (ii) unless Holder shall have delivered to the Company an opinion of counsel to the effect that the Warrant or such portion of the Warrant to be sold or transferred may be sold or transferred under an exemption from such registration.

(b) The Company covenants and agrees that all Underlying Shares will, upon issuance and payment therefor, be legally and validly issued and outstanding, free from all taxes, liens, charges and preemptive or similar rights, if any, with respect thereto or to the issuance thereof. The Company will take all such action as may be reasonably necessary or appropriate to assure that the Underlying Shares may be issued as provided herein without violating any applicable law or regulation, or any requirements of the Trading Market upon which the Voting Common Stock may be listed.

(c) The certificates representing the Underlying Shares will bear the following or similar legend, unless the Company determines otherwise in compliance with applicable law:

“THE SHARES OF COMMON STOCK REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE US SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”) AND MAY NOT BE OFFERED, SOLD, PLEDGED OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED EXCEPT (1) IN AN OFFSHORE TRANSACTION MEETING THE REQUIREMENTS OF RULE 903 OR RULE 904 OF REGULATION S UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT, (2) PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT, OR (3) PURSUANT TO AN AVAILABLE EXEMPTION FROM THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT, IN EACH CASE IN ACCORDANCE WITH ALL APPLICABLE SECURITIES LAWS.”

Section 7. Anti-Dilution Adjustments.

(a) If the Company shall at any time prior to the expiration of this Warrant (i) pay a stock dividend or otherwise make a distribution or distributions on shares of Voting Common Stock or any other equity or equity securities, (ii) subdivide the Voting Common Stock (by stock split, recapitalization, or any other similar event) into a larger number of shares, (iii) combine the Voting Common Stock (by stock split or reverse stock split, recapitalization, combination of shares, or any other similar event) or (iv) issue by reclassification of shares of Voting Common Stock any shares of capital stock of the Company (with the exception of any reclassification that constitutes a Fundamental Change, as hereinafter defined), then in each such case the Exercise

 

-5-


Price shall be adjusted by multiplying the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to (x) the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to receive such dividend or distribution or (y) the effective date in the case of a subdivision, combination or re-classification by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the number of shares of Voting Common Stock outstanding immediately before such event and the denominator of which shall be the number of shares of Voting Common Stock outstanding immediately after such event, and the number of shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be proportionately adjusted such that the Aggregate Exercise Price shall remain unchanged. Before taking any action which would result in an adjustment in the number of Underlying Shares for which this Warrant is exercisable or to the Exercise Price, the Company shall obtain all such authorizations or exemptions thereof, or consents thereto, as may be necessary from any public regulatory body or bodies having jurisdiction thereof.

(b) If the Company shall at any time prior to the expiration of this Warrant (in each case, occurring after the date hereof) be a party to any merger, consolidation, exchange of shares of Voting Common Stock, sale of a majority of the Voting Common Stock, sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, separation, reorganization, recapitalization, winding up or liquidation of the Company, or other similar event or transaction (each, a “Fundamental Change”), as a result of which shares of Voting Common Stock shall be changed into the same or a different number or class or classes of securities of the Company or another entity, or the holders of shares of Voting Common Stock are entitled to receive cash or other property, then, upon the Exercise of this Warrant by the Holder, such Holder shall receive, for the Aggregate Exercise Price as in effect immediately prior to such Fundamental Change (subject to all other adjustments under this Warrant), the aggregate number of shares or such other securities, cash or other property which such Holder would have received if this Warrant had been exercised immediately prior to such Fundamental Change (collectively, the “Fundamental Change Receivable”), which, upon the Holder’s election, may be received net of the Aggregate Exercise Price (for the avoidance of doubt, without payment by the Holder of any cash in an amount equal to the then Exercise Price). In the case of any Fundamental Change, the successor or purchasing party of such merger, consolidation, exchange of shares of Voting Common Stock, sale of all or substantially all of the Assets of the Company or reorganization (if other than the Company) shall duly execute and deliver to the Holder a supplement to this Warrant acknowledging the Company and such party’s obligations under this Section 7(b). The terms of this Warrant shall be applicable to the Fundamental Change Receivable due to the Holder upon the consummation of any such Fundamental Change.

(c) If the Company, at any time while this Warrant is outstanding, shall otherwise distribute to all holders of Voting Common Stock (and not to the Holder or Holders) evidences of its indebtedness or assets (including cash and cash dividends) or rights or warrants to subscribe for or purchase any security (for the avoidance of doubt, excluding in each such case any Fundamental Change Receivable), then in each such case the Exercise Price shall be adjusted by multiplying the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to the record date fixed for determination of stockholders entitled to receive such distribution by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be such VWAP on such record date less the then Fair Market Value at such record date of the portion of such assets or evidence of indebtedness so distributed applicable to one outstanding share of Voting Common Stock, and the denominator of which shall be the VWAP determined as of the record date mentioned above. Such adjustment shall be made whenever any such distribution is made and shall become effective immediately after the record date mentioned above.

 

-6-


(d) Not less than five (5) days prior to the record date or effective date, as the case may be, of any event which requires or might require an adjustment or readjustment pursuant to Section 7(a) or Section 7(c) (each, an “Adjustment Event”), and not less than ten (10) days prior to the record date or effective date, as the case may be, of any Fundamental Change, the Company shall give written notice of such Adjustment Event or Fundamental Change (as applicable) to the Holder or Holders, describing such Adjustment Event or Fundamental Change in reasonable detail and specifying the record date or effective date, as the case may be. Such notice shall additionally include the Company’s certification of the following computations, as applicable, each of which shall have been made by the Company in good faith: (i) in the case of an Adjustment Event, if determinable, the required adjustment and the computation thereof or, if the required adjustment is not determinable at the time of such notice, the Company shall give notice to the Holder or Holders of such adjustment and computation promptly after such adjustment becomes determinable, and (ii) in the case of a Fundamental Change, the number of shares or such other securities, cash or other property which is payable to the Holder or Holders upon the Fundamental Change, the computation thereof, and the computation of the then applicable Exercise Price. Except as otherwise prohibited by applicable laws, to the extent that any notice provided pursuant to this Section 7(d) contains material, non-public information regarding the Company, the Company shall disclose such information regarding the Company in a Current Report on Form 8-K and file such Current Report on Form 8-K with the SEC no later than the second Trading Day following the date such notice is delivered to the Holder.

(e) Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, if an exercise of all or any portion of this Warrant is to be made in connection with a Fundamental Change or a public offering, such exercise may, at the election of the Holder, be conditioned upon the consummation of such transaction, in which case such exercise shall not be deemed to be effective until immediately prior to the consummation of such transaction.

(f) At all times on and prior to the Expiration Date, the Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued Voting Common Stock (or other equity interests then constituting Underlying Shares), solely for the purpose of issuance upon the exercise of this Warrant, the maximum number of Underlying Shares issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant. The Company further covenants that its issuance of this Warrant shall constitute full authority to its officers who are charged with the duty of executing stock certificates or effectuating the book entry of uncertificated shares to execute and issue, or enter, the necessary certificates or book entries (as applicable) for the Underlying Shares upon the exercise of the purchase rights under this Warrant. The Company shall not increase the par value of any Underlying Shares receivable upon the exercise of this Warrant above the Exercise Price then in effect, and shall take all such actions within its power as may be necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and non-assessable Underlying Shares upon the exercise of this Warrant.

 

-7-


Section 8. Transfer of Warrant. Subject to compliance with applicable federal and state securities laws, the Holder may, from time to time, transfer this Warrant or the Underlying Shares, in each case, in whole or in part, by giving the Company a written notice of the portion of the Warrant or the shares of the Underlying Shares being transferred, such notice to set forth the name, address and taxpayer identification number of the transferee, the anticipated date of such transfer, and surrendering this Warrant or the certificates or book-entry records representing shares of the Underlying Shares, as applicable, to the Company for reissuance to the transferee(s). Upon surrender of this Warrant by a Holder to the Company for transfer, in whole or in part, the Company shall issue a new warrant to such Holder in such denomination as shall be requested by such Holder covering the number of Underlying Shares, if any, in respect of which this Warrant shall not have been transferred. Such new warrant shall be identical in all other respects to this Warrant. This Warrant may be divided or combined with other Warrants upon presentation hereof at the office of the Company, together with a written notice specifying the names and denominations in which new Warrants are to be issued, signed by the Holder or its agent or attorney. Subject to compliance with this Section 8 as to any transfer which may be involved in such division or combination, the Company shall execute and deliver a new Warrant or Warrants in exchange for the Warrant or Warrants to be divided or combined in accordance with such notice. All Warrants issued on transfers or exchanges shall be dated as of the Initial Issuance Date and shall be identical with this Warrant except as to the number of Underlying Shares issuable pursuant thereto.

Section 9. No Impairment. The Company may not, including, without limitation, by amendment of its certificate of incorporation or bylaws, or through a Fundamental Change or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms of this Warrant, and the Company shall at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all such terms and in the taking of all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order to protect the rights of the Holder or Holders against impairment. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company shall take (a) all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may duly and validly issue fully paid and non-assessable Underlying Shares, free from any taxes, liens, charges and preemptive rights, upon the exercise of this Warrant, and (b) use its best efforts to obtain all such authorizations, exemptions or consents from any public regulatory body having jurisdiction thereof, as may be necessary to enable the Company to perform its obligations under this Warrant.

Section 10. No Rights or Liabilities as a Stockholder. This Warrant shall not entitle the Holder or Holders hereof to any voting rights or other rights as a stockholder of the Company with respect to the Underlying Shares prior to the exercise of the Warrant.

This Warrant constitutes, and any Warrant issued in substitution for or replacement of this Warrant shall be, upon issuance, a legal, valid and binding obligation of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and by general principles of equity.

(c) As of the Initial Issuance Date, the execution, delivery and performance by the Company of the Warrant does not and will not (A) violate any material provision of applicable law or the organizational documents of the Company, (B) conflict with, result in a breach of, or constitute (with the giving of any notice, the passage of time, or both) a default under any material agreement of the Company or (C) result in or require the creation or imposition of any lien upon any assets of the Company.

Section 14. Remedies. If the Company violates, breaches or defaults under this Warrant, the Holder may proceed to protect and enforce its rights by any action at law, suit in equity or other appropriate proceeding, whether for specific performance of any agreement contained in this Warrant, or for an injunction against a violation of any of the terms hereof, or in and of the exercise of any power granted hereby or by law, in each case without providing any bond or other security in connection with such action, suit or other proceeding. In case of any violation, breach or default under this Warrant, the Company shall pay to the Holder on demand all reasonable costs and expenses of enforcing the Holder’s rights under this Warrant, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and legal expenses.

If any provisions(s) of this Warrant or the application thereof to any person or circumstances shall be invalid or unenforceable to any extent, the remainder of this Warrant and the application of such provisions to other persons or circumstances shall not be affected thereby and shall be enforced to the greatest extent permitted by law.

Section 20. Entire Agreement. This Warrant and between the Company and the Holder represents the entire agreement between the parties concerning the subject matter hereof, and all oral discussions and prior agreement are merged herein.

In the case of any dispute as to the determination of any amount or valuation hereunder or in connection with the amount or value of any Voting Common Stock or Underlying Shares to be issued, withheld or otherwise determined, the calculation of the Aggregate Exercise Price or any other computation or valuation required to be made hereunder or in connection herewith, in the event the Holder, on the one hand, and the Company, on the other hand, are unable to settle such dispute within five (5) Business Days, then either party may elect to submit the disputed matter(s) for resolution by KPMG LLP or another accounting firm of nationally recognized standing as may be mutually agreed upon by the Holder and the Company. Such firm’s determination of such disputed matter(s) shall be binding upon all parties absent demonstrable error, and the Company and the Holder shall each pay one half of the fees and costs of such firm.

-39-


Cash Proceeds of such Asset Sale or insurance proceeds or condemnation awards in respect of such Casualty Event are actually applied for such purpose; provided, further, that, if such Casualty Event or Asset Sale occurs with respect to any Obligor, such Reinvestment shall be made in the business of an Obligor; provided, further, that, in the event that Net Cash Proceeds have not been so applied within three hundred sixty-five (365) days (the “Reinvestment Period”) following the occurrence of such Casualty Event or Asset Sale (or, if the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries has entered into a binding commitment prior to the last day of such Reinvestment Period to reinvest such proceeds no later than one hundred eighty (180) days following the last day of the Reinvestment Period, one hundred eighty (180) days after the expiry of the Reinvestment Period), the Borrower shall no later than the end of such period make a mandatory prepayment of the Loans in an aggregate amount equal to the sum of (i) one hundred percent (100%) of the unused balance of such Net Cash Proceeds received by any Obligor or any of its Subsidiaries with respect to such Asset Sale or insurance proceeds or condemnation awards in respect of such Casualty Event, (ii) any accrued but unpaid interest on any principal amount of the Loans being prepaid and (iii) any applicable Prepayment Fee and Exit Fee.

SECTION 5.

YIELD PROTECTION, TAXES, ETC.

5.01 Additional Costs.

(a) Change in Law Generally. If, on or after the date hereof (or, with respect to any Lender, such later date on which such Lender becomes a party to this Agreement), the adoption of any Law, or any change in any Law, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any court or other Governmental Authority charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by the Administrative Agent or any of the Lenders (or its lending office) with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any such Governmental Authority, shall impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve (including any such requirement imposed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System), special deposit, contribution, insurance assessment or similar requirement, in each case that becomes effective after the date hereof (or, with respect to any Lender, such later date on which such Lender becomes a party to this Agreement), against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, a Lender (or its lending office) or shall impose on a Lender (or its lending office) any other condition affecting the Loans or the Commitment, and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender of making or maintaining the Loans, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or subject any Lender to any Taxes on its Loan, Commitment or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital (if any) attributable thereto by an amount reasonably deemed by such Lender in good faith to be material (other than (i) Indemnified Taxes, (ii) Taxes described in clauses (ii) through (iv) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and (iii) Connection Income Taxes), then the Borrower shall pay to such Lender on demand such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender for such increased cost or reduction.

(b) Change in Capital Requirements. If a Lender shall have determined that, on or after the date hereof (or, with respect to any Lender, such later date on which such Lender becomes a party to this Agreement), the adoption of any Law regarding capital adequacy, or any change therein, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any Governmental Authority charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or any request

 

-43-


or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) of any such Governmental Authority, in each case that becomes effective after the date hereof (or, with respect to any Lender, such later date on which such Lender becomes a party to this Agreement), has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on capital of a Lender (or its parent) as a consequence of a Lender’s obligations hereunder or the Loans to a level below that which a Lender (or its parent) could have achieved but for such adoption, change, request or directive by an amount reasonably deemed by it to be material, then the Borrower shall pay to such Lender on demand such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender (or its parent) for such reduction.

(c) Notification by Lender. Each Lender promptly will notify the Borrower of any event of which it has knowledge, occurring after the date hereof (or, with respect to any Lender, such later date on which such Lender becomes a party to this Agreement), which will entitle such Lender to compensation pursuant to this Section 5.01. Before giving any such notice pursuant to this Section 5.01(c) such Lender shall designate a different lending office if such designation (x) will, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, such compensation and (y) will not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, be materially disadvantageous to such Lender. A certificate of such Lender claiming compensation under this Section 5.01, setting forth the additional amount or amounts to be paid to it hereunder, shall be conclusive and binding on the Borrower in the absence of manifest error.

(d) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, (x) the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and all requests, rules, guidelines or directives thereunder or issued in connection therewith and (y) all requests, rules, guidelines or directives promulgated by the Bank for 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 constitute a change in Law for all purposes of this Section 5.01, regardless of the date enacted, adopted or issued.

5.02 Illegality. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, in the event that on or after the date hereof (or, with respect to any Lender, such later date on which such Lender becomes a party to this Agreement) the adoption of or any change in any Law or in the interpretation or application thereof by any competent Governmental Authority shall make it unlawful for a Lender or its lending office to make or maintain the Loans (and, in the opinion of such Lender, the designation of a different lending office would either not avoid such unlawfulness or would be disadvantageous to such Lender), then such Lender shall promptly notify the Borrower thereof, following which if such Law shall so mandate, the Loans shall be prepaid by the Borrower on or before such date as shall be mandated by such Law in an amount equal to the Prepayment Price (notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, without any Prepayment Fee or Exit Fee) applicable on such prepayment date in accordance with Section 3.03(a).

 

-44-


5.03 Taxes.

(a) Payments Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of any Obligation shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by any Law. If any Law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable Withholding Agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a Withholding Agent, then the applicable Withholding Agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable Laws and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by such Obligor shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 5) the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.

(b) Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrower. The Borrower shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable Laws, or at the option of the Administrative Agent or each Lender, timely reimburse it for the payment of any Other Taxes.

(c) Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by the Borrower to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 5, the Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment.

The Borrower shall reimburse and indemnify each Recipient, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 5) payable or paid by such Recipient or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Recipient and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrower by a Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(e) Indemnification by the Lender. Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that the Borrower has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Borrower to do so), and (ii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender, in each case, that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent in connection with any Loan Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this Section 5.03(e).

In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by Law as reasonably requested by the Borrower as will enable the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two (2) sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 5.03(f)(ii)(A), (ii)(B), and (ii)(D)) shall not be required if in such Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.

(ii) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event that the Borrower is a U.S. Person:

(A) any Lender that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed copies of IRS Form W-9 (or successor form) certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding tax;

(C) any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed copies of any other form prescribed by applicable Laws as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable Laws to permit the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and

(D) 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 Borrower and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable Law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Borrower 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, if any, to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this clause (D), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

(g) Treatment of Certain Tax Benefits. If any party to this Agreement 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 5 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 5), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to

 

-47-


such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 5 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this Section 5.03(g) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 5.03(g), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this Section 5.03(g) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This Section 5.03(g) 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.

5.04 Mitigation Obligations. If the Borrower is required to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or to any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 5.01 or this Section 5.03, then such Lender shall (at the request of the Borrower) use commercially reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign and delegate its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or Affiliates if, in the sole reasonable judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment and delegation would (i) eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 5.01 or this Section 5.03, as the case may be, in the future, (ii) not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and (iii) not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender. The Borrower hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment and delegation.

5.05 Survival. Each party’s obligations under this Section 5 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.

Each Benefit Plan, and each trust thereunder, intended to qualify for tax exempt status under Section 401 or 501 of the Code or other Laws so qualifies. Except for those that could not, in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect, (x) each Benefit Plan is in compliance with applicable provisions of ERISA, the Code and other Laws, (y) there are no existing or pending (or to the knowledge of any Obligor or any of its Subsidiaries, threatened) claims (other than routine claims for benefits in the normal course), sanctions, actions, lawsuits or other proceedings or investigation involving any Benefit Plan to which any Obligor or Subsidiary thereof incurs or otherwise has or could have an obligation or any liability or Claim and (z) no ERISA Event is reasonably expected to occur. The Borrower and each of its ERISA Affiliates has met all applicable requirements under the ERISA Funding Rules with respect to each Title IV Plan, and no waiver of the minimum funding standards under the ERISA Funding Rules has been applied for or obtained. As of the most recent valuation date for any Title IV Plan, the funding target attainment percentage (as defined in Section 430(d)(2) of the Code) is at least sixty percent (60%), and neither any Obligor nor any of its ERISA Affiliates knows of any facts or circumstances that could reasonably be expected to cause the funding target attainment percentage to fall below sixty percent (60%) as of the most recent valuation date. As of the Closing Date, no ERISA Event has occurred in connection with which obligations and liabilities (contingent or otherwise) remain outstanding. No ERISA Affiliate would have any Withdrawal Liability as a result of a complete withdrawal from any Multiemployer Plan on the date this representation is made.

If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, if any Obligor shall be in default under a Material Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall have the right (but not the obligation) to cause the default or defaults under such Material Agreement to be remedied (including without limitation by paying any unpaid amount thereunder) and otherwise exercise any and all rights of such Obligor, as the case may be, thereunder, as may be necessary to prevent or cure any default. Without limiting the foregoing, upon any such default, each Obligor shall promptly execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Administrative Agent such instruments as may reasonably be required of such Obligor to permit the Administrative Agent to cure any default under the applicable Material Agreement or permit the Administrative Agent to take such other action required to enable the Administrative Agent to cure or remedy the matter in default and preserve the interests of the Administrative Agent. Any amounts paid by the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 11.03 shall be payable in accordance with Section 14.03(a), shall accrue interest at the Default Rate if not paid when due, and shall constitute “Obligations.”

11.04 Minimum Revenue Covenant Cure.

(a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section11.02, in the event the Borrower fails to comply with the requirements of the Minimum Revenue Covenant, during the period from the end of the relevant fiscal quarter until the expiration of the fifteenth Business Day subsequent to the date the financial statements are required to be delivered pursuant to Section 8.018.01(a) or 8.01(b), the Borrower shall have the right to (A) make a Revenue Cure Payment or (B) apply cash then held by the Borrower in excess of the Minimum Cash Balance so long as, immediately after giving effect to the Minimum Revenue Cure Right, the Borrower continues to hold at least the Minimum Cash Balance (the “Minimum Revenue Cure Right”). Upon the Administrative Agent’s receipt of the applicable Revenue Cure Payment or application of such cash amounts, the Borrower shall then be in compliance with the requirements of the Minimum Revenue Covenant and the Borrower shall be deemed to have satisfied the requirements of the Minimum Revenue Covenant as of the relevant date of determination with the same effect as though there had been no failure to comply therewith at such date, and the applicable breach of the Minimum Revenue Covenant and any related default that had occurred shall be deemed cured for the purposes of this Agreement. Any Revenue Cure Payment shall be applied to the prepayment of the Loans. To the extent the Borrower has made no less than $20,000,000 in Revenue Cure Payments in any calendar year, no breach of the Minimum Revenue Covenant in such calendar year shall constitute an Event of Default hereunder.

(b) Upon the Administrative Agent’s receipt of a notice from the Borrower that it intends to exercise the Minimum Revenue Cure Right (a “Notice of Intent to Cure Revenue Covenant”), until the fifteenth Business Day subsequent to the date the financial statements are required to be delivered pursuant to Section 8.01(a) or 8.01(b) to which such Notice of Intent to Cure Revenue Covenant relates, no Lender shall be required to extend any credit pursuant to its Commitment during such period. If within such fifteen Business Day period, the Oaktree Lender declines the exercise by the Borrower of the Minimum Revenue Cure Right by written notice to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower to that effect, then the Borrower shall be deemed to have satisfied the requirements of the Minimum Revenue Covenant as of the relevant date of determination with the same effect as though there had been no failure to comply therewith at such date, and the applicable breach of the Minimum Revenue Covenant and any related default that had occurred shall be deemed cured for the purposes of this Agreement.

11.05 Leverage Ratio Cure Right.

(a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section11.02, in the event the Borrower fails to comply with the requirements of the Leverage Ratio Covenant, during the period from the end of the relevant fiscal quarter until the expiration of the fifteenth Business Day subsequent to the date the financial statements are required to be delivered pursuant to Section 8.018.01(a) or 8.01(b) (the “Leverage Cure Applicable Time”), the Borrower shall have the right to (A) issue Permitted Cure Securities for cash or (B) apply cash then held by the Borrower in excess of the Minimum Cash Balance so long as, immediately after giving effect to the Leverage Ratio Cure Right, the Borrower continues to hold at least the Minimum Cash Balance (the “Leverage Ratio Cure Right”) and, upon the receipt by the Borrower of any such cash proceeds or application of such cash amounts (the “Cure Amount”) pursuant to the exercise of such Leverage Ratio Cure Right, (i) the Cure Amount shall be applied to the prepayment of the Loans, (ii) the Leverage Ratio Covenant shall be recalculated giving effect to a pro forma adjustment by which EBITDA shall be increased with respect to such applicable fiscal quarter and any four-quarter period that contains such quarter, solely for the purpose of measuring the Leverage Ratio Covenant and not for any other purpose under this Agreement, by an amount equal to the Cure Amount and (iii) any reduction in Indebtedness (or cash netting) from the proceeds of the Cure Amount shall not be given pro forma effect when measuring compliance with the Leverage Ratio Covenant for such fiscal quarter. The resulting increase to EBITDA from the application of a Cure Amount shall not result in any adjustment to EBITDA or any other financial definition for any purpose under this Agreement other than for purposes of calculating the Leverage Ratio Covenant and, except to the extent of any reduction in Indebtedness (or cash netting) from the proceeds of the Cure Amount, the proceeds of the Cure Amount shall be disregarded for other purposes of this Agreement (including determining pricing, financial ratio-based conditions (subject to clause (ii) of the foregoing sentence) or basket amounts). The Cure Amount shall be no greater than the amount required for purposes of complying with the Leverage Ratio Covenant. If, after giving effect to the adjustments in this Section 11.05, the Borrower shall then be in compliance with the requirements of the Leverage Ratio Covenant, the Borrower shall be deemed to have satisfied the requirements of the Leverage Ratio Covenant as of the relevant date of determination with the same effect as though there had been no failure to comply therewith at such date, and the applicable breach of the Leverage Ratio Covenant and any related default that had occurred shall be deemed cured for the purposes of this Agreement.

(b) Upon the Administrative Agent’s receipt of a notice from the Borrower that it intends to exercise the Leverage Ratio Cure Right (a “Notice of Intent to Cure Leverage Covenant”), until the fifteenth Business Day subsequent to the date the financial statements are required to be delivered pursuant to Section 8.018.01(a) or 8.01(b) to which such Notice of Intent to Cure Leverage Covenant relates, no Lender shall be required to extend any credit pursuant to its Commitment during such period. If within such fifteen Business Day period, the

 

-92-


Oaktree Lender declines the exercise by the Borrower of the Minimum Revenue Cure Right by written notice to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower to that effect, then the Borrower shall be deemed to have satisfied the requirements of the Leverage Ratio Covenant as of the relevant date of determination with the same effect as though there had been no failure to comply therewith at such date, and the applicable breach of the Leverage Ratio Covenant and any related default that had occurred shall be deemed cured for the purposes of this Agreement.

11.06 Payment of Prepayment Fee and Exit Fee. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Prepayment Fee and the Exit Fee shall automatically be due and payable at any time the Obligations become due and payable prior to the Maturity Date in accordance with the terms hereof as though such Indebtedness was voluntarily prepaid and shall constitute part of the Obligations, whether due to acceleration pursuant to the terms of this Agreement (in which case it shall be due immediately, upon the giving of notice to Borrower in accordance with Section 11.02(a), or automatically, in accordance with Section 11.02(b)), by operation of law or otherwise (including, without limitation, on account of any bankruptcy filing), in view of the impracticability and extreme difficulty of ascertaining the actual amount of damages to the Lenders or profits lost by the Lenders as a result of such acceleration, and by mutual agreement of the parties as to a reasonable estimation and calculation of the lost profits or damages of the Lenders as a result thereof. Any Prepayment Fee or Exit Fee (or, if required, both the Prepayment Fee and the Exit Fee) payable pursuant to this Agreement shall be presumed to be the liquidated damages sustained by each Lender as the result of the early termination, acceleration or prepayment and each Obligor agrees that such Prepayment Fee or Exit Fee is reasonable under the circumstances currently existing. The Prepayment Fee and Exit Fee shall also be payable in the event the Obligations (and/or this Agreement) are satisfied or released by foreclosure (whether by power of judicial proceeding), deed in lieu of foreclosure or by any other means. EACH OBLIGOR HEREBY WAIVES THE PROVISIONS OF ANY PRESENT OR FUTURE STATUTE OR LAW THAT PROHIBITS OR MAY PROHIBIT THE COLLECTION OF THE PREPAYMENT FEE OR EXIT FEE AND ANY DEFENSE TO PAYMENT, WHETHER SUCH DEFENSE MAY BE BASED IN PUBLIC POLICY, AMBIGUITY, OR OTHERWISE. The Obligors, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders acknowledge and agree that any Prepayment Fee and the Exit Fee due and payable in accordance with this Agreement shall not constitute unmatured interest, whether under Section 5.02(b)(3) of the Bankruptcy Code or otherwise. Each Obligor further acknowledges and agrees, and waives any argument to the contrary, that payment of such amount does not constitute a penalty or an otherwise unenforceable or invalid obligation. Each Obligor expressly agrees that (i) the Prepayment Fee and Exit Fee are each reasonable and each is the product of an arm’s-length transaction between sophisticated business people, ably represented by counsel, (ii) the Prepayment Fee and Exit Fee shall be payable notwithstanding the then prevailing market rates at the time payment is made, (iii) there has been a course of conduct between the Lenders and the Obligors giving specific consideration in this transaction for such agreement to pay the Prepayment Fee and Exit Fee, (iv) the Obligors shall be estopped hereafter from claiming differently than as agreed to in this Section 11.06, (v) their agreement to pay the Prepayment Fee and Exit Fee is a material inducement to the Lenders to make the Loans, and (vi) the Prepayment Fee and Exit Fee represent a good faith, reasonable estimate and calculation of the lost profits, losses or other damages of the Lenders and that it would be impractical and extremely difficult to ascertain the actual amount of damages to the Lenders or profits lost by the Lenders as a result of such event.

12.01 Appointment and Duties. Subject in all cases to clause (c) below:

Without limiting the generality of Section 12.01(a), the Administrative Agent shall have the sole and exclusive right and authority (to the exclusion of the Lenders), and is hereby authorized, to (i) act as the disbursing and collecting agent for the Lenders with respect to all payments and collections arising in connection with the Loan Documents (including in any proceeding described in Section 11.01(h) or any other bankruptcy, insolvency or similar proceeding), and each Person making any payment in connection with any Loan Document to any Secured Party is hereby authorized to make such payment to the Administrative Agent, (ii) file and prove claims and file other documents necessary or desirable to allow the claims of the Secured Parties with respect to any Obligation in any proceeding described in Section 11.01(h) or any other bankruptcy, insolvency or similar proceeding (but not to vote, consent or otherwise act on behalf of such Secured Party), (iii) act as collateral agent for each Secured Party for purposes of acquiring, holding, enforcing and perfecting all Liens created by the Loan Documents and all other purposes stated therein, (iv) manage, supervise and otherwise deal with the Collateral, (v) take such other action as is necessary or desirable to maintain the perfection and priority of the Liens created or purported to be created by the Loan Documents, (vi) except as may be otherwise specified in any Loan Document, exercise all remedies given to the Administrative Agent and the other Secured Parties with respect to the Collateral, whether under the Loan Documents, applicable Laws or otherwise and (vii) execute any amendment, consent or waiver under the Loan Documents on behalf of any Lender that has consented in writing to such amendment, consent or waiver; provided that the Administrative Agent hereby appoints, authorizes and directs each Lender to act as collateral sub-agent for the Administrative Agent and the Lenders for purposes of the perfection of all Liens with respect to the Collateral, including any deposit account maintained by a Obligor with, and cash and Cash Equivalents held by, such Lender, and may further authorize and direct the Lenders to take further actions as collateral sub-agents for purposes of enforcing such Liens or otherwise to transfer the Collateral subject thereto to the Administrative Agent, and each Lender hereby agrees to take such further actions to the extent, and only to the extent, so authorized and directed.

 

-94-


(c) Limited Duties. The Lenders and the Obligors hereby each acknowledge and agree that the Administrative Agent (i) has undertaken its role hereunder purely as an accommodation to the parties hereto and the Transactions, (ii) is receiving no compensation for undertaking such role and (iii) subject only to the notice provisions set forth in Section 12.09, may resign from such role at any time for any reason or no reason whatsoever. Without limiting the foregoing, the parties hereto further acknowledge and agree that under the Loan Documents, the Administrative Agent (i) is acting solely on behalf of the Lenders (except to the limited extent provided in Section 12.11), with duties that are entirely administrative in nature, notwithstanding the use of the defined term “the Administrative Agent”, the terms “agent”, “administrative agent” and “collateral agent” and similar terms in any Loan Document to refer to the Administrative Agent, which terms are used for title purposes only, (ii) is not assuming any duty or obligation under any Loan Document other than as expressly set forth therein or any role as agent, fiduciary or trustee of or for any Lender or any other Secured Party and (iii) shall have no implied functions, responsibilities, duties, obligations or other liabilities under any Loan Document (fiduciary or otherwise), in each case, regardless of whether a Default has occurred and is continuing, and each Lender hereby waives and agrees not to assert any claim against the Administrative Agent based on the roles, duties and legal relationships expressly disclaimed in this clause (c). Without in any way limiting the foregoing, the Administrative Agent shall not, except as expressly set forth in this Agreement and in the other Loan Documents, have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to any Obligor or any of its Affiliates that is communicated to or obtained by the Person serving as the Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity.

12.02 Binding Effect. Each Lender agrees that (i) any action taken by the Administrative Agent or the Majority Lenders (or, if expressly required hereby, a greater proportion of the Lenders) in accordance with the provisions of the Loan Documents, (ii) any action taken by the Administrative Agent in reliance upon the instructions of the Majority Lenders (or, where so required, such greater proportion) and (iii) the exercise by the Administrative Agent or the Majority Lenders (or, where so required, such greater proportion) of the powers set forth herein or therein, together with such other powers as are reasonably incidental thereto, shall be authorized and binding upon all of the Secured Parties.

12.03 Use of Discretion.

(a) No Action without Instructions. The Administrative Agent shall not be required to exercise any discretion or take, or to omit to take, any action, including with respect to enforcement or collection, except (subject to clause (b) below) any action it is required to take or omit to take (i) under any Loan Document or (ii) pursuant to written instructions from the Majority Lenders (or, where expressly required by the terms of this Agreement, a greater proportion of the Lenders).

(b) Right Not to Follow Certain Instructions. Notwithstanding Section 12.03(a) or any other term or provision of this Section 12, the Administrative Agent shall not be required to take, or to omit to take, any action (i) unless, upon demand, the Administrative Agent receives an indemnification satisfactory to it from the Lenders (or, to the extent applicable and acceptable to the Administrative Agent, any other Secured Party) against all Liabilities that, by reason of such action or omission, may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent

 

-95-


or any Related Person thereof or (ii) that is, in the opinion of the Administrative Agent, in its sole and absolute discretion, contrary to any Loan Document, Law or the best interests of the Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates or Related Persons, including, for the avoidance of doubt, any action that may be in violation of the automatic stay in connection with any Insolvency Proceeding..

12.04 Delegation of Rights and Duties. The Administrative Agent may, upon any term or condition it specifies, delegate or exercise any of its rights, powers and remedies under, and delegate or perform any of its duties or any other action with respect to, any Loan Document by or through any trustee, co-agent, employee, attorney-in-fact and any other Person (including any Secured Party). The Administrative Agent and any such Person may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or through their respective Related Parties. Any such Person and its Related Parties shall benefit from this Section 12 to the extent provided by the Administrative Agent; provided, however, that the exculpatory provisions of this Section 12 shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Related Parties of the Administrative Agent and of any such sub-agent, and shall apply to their respective activities in connection with their activities as Administrative Agent. 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 non-appealable judgment that the Administrative Agent acted with gross negligence or willful misconduct in the selection of such sub-agents.

12.05 Reliance and Liability.

(a) the Administrative Agent may, without incurring any liability hereunder, (i) consult with any of its Related Persons and, whether or not selected by it, any other advisors, accountants and other experts (including advisors to, and accountants and experts engaged by, any Obligor) and (ii) rely and act upon any notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, document or other writing (including and electronic message, Internet or intranet website posting or other distribution), telephone message or conversation or oral conversation, in each case believed by it to be genuine and transmitted, signed or otherwise authenticated by the appropriate parties. In determining compliance with any condition hereunder to the making of a Loan that by its terms must be fulfilled to the satisfaction of a Lender, the Administrative Agent may presume that such condition is satisfactory to such Lender unless the Administrative Agent shall have received written notice to the contrary from such Lender prior to the making of such Loan.

(b) Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its Related Persons shall be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by any of them under or in connection with any Loan Document, and each Lender and the Borrower hereby waive and shall not assert (and the Borrower shall cause each other Obligor to waive and agree not to assert) any right, claim or cause of action based thereon, except to the extent of liabilities resulting primarily from the fraudulent conduct or behavior of the Administrative Agent or, as the case may be, such Related Person (each as determined in a final, non-appealable judgment or order by a court of competent jurisdiction) in connection with the duties expressly set forth herein. Without limiting the foregoing, the Administrative Agent:

 

-96-


(i) shall not be responsible or otherwise incur liability for any action or omission taken in reliance upon the instructions of, or with the consent of, the Majority Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary, or as the Administrative Agent shall believe in good faith to be necessary, under the circumstances as provided in Section 14.04) or for the actions or omissions of any of its Related Persons selected with reasonable care (other than employees, officers and directors of the Administrative Agent, when acting on behalf of the Administrative Agent);

(ii) shall not be responsible to any Secured Party for the (a) validity, enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any other agreement, instrument or document, or (b) due execution, legality, validity, enforceability, effectiveness, genuineness, sufficiency or value of, or the attachment, perfection or priority of any Lien created or purported to be created under or in connection with, any Loan Document;

(iii) makes no warranty or representation, and shall not be responsible, to any Secured Party for, and shall not have any duty to ascertain or inquire into, any statement, document, information, certificate, report, representation or warranty made or furnished by or on behalf of any Related Person, in or in connection with any Loan Document or any transaction contemplated therein, whether or not transmitted by the Administrative Agent, including as to completeness, accuracy, scope or adequacy thereof, or for the scope, nature or results of any due diligence performed by the Administrative Agent in connection with the Loan Documents, including, for the avoidance of doubt, the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Section 6 of this Agreement or elsewhere herein (other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to the Administrative Agent); and

(iv) shall not have any duty to ascertain or to inquire as to the performance or observance of any provision of any Loan Document or whether any condition set forth in any Loan Document is satisfied or waived, including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, as to the financial condition of any Obligor or as to the existence or continuation or possible occurrence or continuation of any Default or Event of Default and shall not be deemed to have notice or knowledge of such occurrence or continuation unless it has received a notice from the Borrower, any Lender describing such Default or Event of Default clearly labeled “notice of default” (in which case the Administrative Agent shall promptly give notice of such receipt to all Lenders);

and, for each of the items set forth in clauses (i) through (iv) above, each Lender and the Borrower hereby waives and agrees not to assert (and the Borrower shall cause each other Obligor to waive and agree not to assert) any right, claim or cause of action it might have against the Administrative Agent based thereon.

12.06 Administrative Agent Individually. The Administrative Agent and its Affiliates may make loans and other extensions of credit to, acquire stock and stock equivalents of, accept deposits from, act as the financial advisor for or in any other advisory capacity for, or engage in any kind of business with, any Obligor or Affiliate thereof as though it were not acting as the Administrative Agent and may receive separate fees and other payments therefor. To the extent the Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates makes any Loan or otherwise becomes a Lender hereunder, it shall have and may exercise the same rights and powers hereunder and shall be

 

-97-


subject to the same obligations and liabilities as any other Lender and the terms “Lender”, “Majority Lender”, and any similar terms shall, except where otherwise expressly provided in any Loan Document, include, without limitation, the Administrative Agent or such Affiliate, as the case may be, in its individual capacity as Lender or as one of the Majority Lenders, respectively.

12.07 Lender Credit Decision. Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent, any Lender or any of their Related Persons or upon any document (including the Disclosure Documents) solely or in part because such document was transmitted by the Administrative Agent or any of its Related Persons, conducted its own independent investigation of the financial condition and affairs of each Obligor and has made and continues to make its own credit decisions in connection with entering into, and taking or not taking any action under, any Loan Document or with respect to any transaction contemplated in any Loan Document, in each case based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate.

12.08 Expenses; Indemnities.

(a) Each Lender agrees to reimburse the Administrative Agent and each of its Related Persons (to the extent not reimbursed by any Obligor) promptly upon demand for such Lender’s Proportionate Share of any costs and expenses (including fees, charges and disbursements of financial, legal and other advisors and Other Taxes paid in the name of, or on behalf of, any Obligor) that may be incurred by the Administrative Agent or any of its Related Persons in connection with the preparation, syndication, execution, delivery, administration, modification, consent, waiver or enforcement (whether through negotiations, through any work-out, bankruptcy, restructuring or other legal or other proceeding or otherwise) of, or legal advice in respect of its rights or responsibilities under, any Loan Document.

(b) Each Lender further agrees to indemnify the Administrative Agent (or any sub-agent thereof) and any Related Persons of the Administrative Agent (or any such sub-agent) (to the extent not indefeasibly paid by any Obligor), from and against such Lender’s aggregate Proportionate Share of the liabilities (including taxes, interests and penalties imposed for not properly withholding or backup withholding on payments made to on or for the account of any Lender) that may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent (or any sub-agent thereof) or any Related Persons of the Administrative Agent (or any such sub-agent) in any matter relating to or arising out of, in connection with or as a result of any Loan Document, any Related Document or any other act, event or transaction related, contemplated in or attendant to any such document, or, in each case, any action taken or omitted to be taken by the Administrative Agent (or any sub-agent thereof) or any Related Persons of the Administrative Agent (or any such sub-agent) under or with respect to any of the foregoing; provided that no Lender shall be liable to the Administrative Agent (or any sub-agent thereof) or any Related Persons of the Administrative Agent (or any such sub-agent) to the extent such liability has resulted primarily from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Administrative Agent (or any sub-agent thereof) or, as the case may be, such Related Person of the Administrative Agent (or any sub-agent thereof), as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable judgment or order.

 

-98-


12.09 Resignation of the Administrative Agent.

(a) At any time upon not less than 30 days prior written notice, the Administrative Agent may resign as the “the Administrative Agent” hereunder, in whole or in part (in the sole and absolute discretion of the Administrative Agent). If the Administrative Agent delivers any such notice, the Majority Lenders shall have the right, in consultation with the Borrower, to appoint a successor, which shall be (i) a Lender holding at least thirty percent (30%) of the outstanding principal amount of the Loans or any Affiliate thereof or (ii) any other financial institution consented to by the Borrower (provided that the consent of the Borrower shall not be required to the extent an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing). If a successor Administrative Agent has not been appointed on or before the effectiveness of the resignation of the resigning Administrative Agent (or such earlier date as shall be agreed by the Majority Lenders) (the “Resignation Effective Date”), then the resigning Administrative Agent may (but shall not be obligated to), on behalf of the Lenders, appoint any Person reasonably chosen by it as the successor Administrative Agent, notwithstanding whether the Majority Lenders have appointed a successor or the Borrower has consented to such successor. Whether or not a successor has been appointed, such resignation shall become effective on the Resignation Effective Date.

(b) Effective from the Resignation Effective Date, (i) the resigning Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations under the Loan Documents to the extent set forth in the applicable resignation notice, (ii) the Lenders shall assume and perform all of the duties of the Administrative Agent until a successor Administrative Agent shall have accepted a valid appointment hereunder, (iii) the resigning Administrative Agent and its Related Persons shall no longer have the benefit of any provision of any Loan Document other than with respect to (x) any actions taken or omitted to be taken while such resigning Administrative Agent was, or because the Administrative Agent had been, validly acting as the Administrative Agent under the Loan Documents or (y) any continuing duties such resigning Administrative Agent will continue to perform, and (iv) subject to its rights under Section 12.04, the resigning Administrative Agent shall take such action as may be reasonably necessary to assign to the successor Administrative Agent its rights as the Administrative Agent under the Loan Documents. Effective immediately upon its acceptance of a valid appointment as the Administrative Agent, a successor Administrative Agent shall succeed to, and become vested with, all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the resigning Administrative Agent under the Loan Documents.

12.10 Release of Collateral or Guarantors. Each Lender hereby consents to the release and hereby directs the Administrative Agent to release, and the Administrative Agent hereby agrees, (or, in the case of Section 12.10(b), release or subordinate) the following:

(a) any Subsidiary of the Borrower from its guaranty of any Obligation of any Obligor (i) if all of the Equity Interests in such Subsidiary owned by any Obligor or any of its Subsidiaries are disposed of in an Asset Sale permitted under the Loan Documents (including pursuant to a waiver or consent), to the extent that, after giving effect to such Asset Sale, such Subsidiary would not be required to guaranty any Obligations pursuant to Section 8.12(a) and (ii) upon (x) termination of the Commitments and (y) payment and satisfaction in full of all Loans and all other Obligations that the Administrative Agent has been notified in writing are then due and payable (other than Warrant Obligations and inchoate indemnification and expense reimbursement obligations for which no claim has been made); and

 

-99-


(b) any Lien held by the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties against (i) any Collateral that is disposed of by an Obligor in an Asset Sale permitted by the Loan Documents (including pursuant to a valid waiver or consent), (ii) any property subject to a Lien described in Section 9.02(c) and (iii) all of the Collateral and all Obligors, upon (x) termination of the Commitments and (y) payment and satisfaction in full of all Loans and all other Obligations that the Administrative Agent has been notified in writing are then due and payable (other than Warrant Obligations and inchoate indemnification and expense reimbursement obligations for which no claim has been made).

Each Lender hereby directs the Administrative Agent, and the Administrative Agent hereby agrees, upon receipt of reasonable advance notice from the Borrower, to execute and deliver or file such documents and to perform other actions reasonably necessary to release the guarantees and Liens when and as directed in this Section 12.10 and deliver to the Borrower, at the expense of the Borrower, any portion of such Collateral so released pursuant to this Section 12.10 that is in possession of the Administrative Agent. In addition, in connection with any Permitted Licenses, each Lender hereby authorizes Administrative Agent to, and at the request of the Borrower, the Administrative Agent shall, negotiate and enter into a non-disturbance agreement and other similar agreements in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Administrative Agent.

12.11 Additional Secured Parties. The benefit of the provisions of the Loan Documents directly relating to the Collateral or any Lien granted thereunder shall extend to and be available to any Secured Party that is not a Lender as long as, by accepting such benefits, such Secured Party agrees, as among the Administrative Agent and all other Secured Parties, that such Secured Party is bound by (and, if requested by the Administrative Agent, shall confirm such agreement in a writing in form and substance acceptable to the Administrative Agent) this Section 12 and the decisions and actions of the Administrative Agent and the Majority Lenders (or, where expressly required by the terms of this Agreement, a greater proportion of the Lenders) to the same extent a Lender is bound; provided that, notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) such Secured Party shall be bound by Section 12.08 only to the extent of Liabilities, costs and expenses with respect to or otherwise relating to the Collateral held for the benefit of such Secured Party, in which case the obligations of such Secured Party thereunder shall not be limited by any concept of Pro Rata Share or similar concept, (ii) each of the Administrative Agent and each Lender shall be entitled to act at its sole discretion, without regard to the interest of such Secured Party, regardless of whether any Obligation to such Secured Party thereafter remains outstanding, is deprived of the benefit of the Collateral, becomes unsecured or is otherwise affected or put in jeopardy thereby, and without any duty or liability to such Secured Party or any such Obligation and (iii) such Secured Party shall not have any right to be notified of, consent to, direct, require or be heard with respect to, any action taken or omitted in respect of the Collateral or under any Loan Document.

 

-100-


12.12 Agent May File Proofs of Claim. In case of the pendency of any Insolvency Proceeding or any other judicial proceeding relating to any Obligor, 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 Borrower or any other Obligor) shall be entitled and empowered (but not obligated) by intervention or 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 and the Administrative Agent (including any claim for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Lenders and the Administrative Agent and their respective agents and counsel and all other amounts due the Lenders and the Administrative Agent under Section 14.03) allowed in such judicial proceeding; and

(b) to collect and receive any monies or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same;

and any custodian, receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator, sequestrator or other similar official in any such judicial proceeding is hereby authorized by each Lender to make such payments to the Administrative Agent and, in the event that the Administrative Agent shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Lenders, to pay to the Administrative Agent any amount due for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Administrative Agent and its agents and counsel, and any other amounts due to the Administrative Agent under Section 14.03.

12.13 Intercreditor Agreement. In connection with the incurrence by the Borrower of any Permitted Indebtedness pursuant to clause (n) of Section 9.01, the Administrative Agent shall use commercially reasonable efforts to enter into an intercreditor agreement with respect to such Permitted Indebtedness in form and substance satisfactory to the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion, such intercreditor agreement shall in any event provide that (i) such debt financing provider shall have a silent second lien on the Intellectual Property relating to Oral Paclitaxel (except as specifically provided in clause (ii)), (ii) such debt financing provider shall be entitled to a senior Lien on proceeds resulting from sales of Oral Paclitaxel in an amount not exceeding 5% of such proceeds, but such Lien shall be subject to the same restrictions on enforcement and other conditions as the silent second lien (except with respect to the payment on its 5% royalty interest on proceeds resulting from sales of Oral Paclitaxel), which shall be subject to a customary waterfall) and (iii) to the extent such debt financing provider becomes a Lender hereunder, such debt financing provider shall be required to support any debt restructuring, restructuring, or enforcement action or agreement supported by the Oaktree Lender so long as such Lender’s Loans hereunder are treated pro rata with the Loans held by the Oaktree Lender (such intercreditor agreement, a “Permitted Intercreditor Agreement”).

SECTION 13.

GUARANTY

13.01 The Guaranty. The Subsidiary Guarantors hereby unconditionally jointly and severally guarantee to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders, and their successors and assigns, the full and punctual payment in full or performance (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) of the Obligations, including (i) principal of and interest on the Loans, (ii) all fees and

 

-101-


other amounts and Obligations from time to time owing to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders by the Borrower and each other Obligor under this Agreement or under any other Loan Document, in each case strictly in accordance with the terms hereof and thereof and (iii) the punctual and faithful performance, keeping, observance and fulfillment by the Borrower and Subsidiary Guarantors of all the agreements, conditions, covenants and obligations of the Borrower and Subsidiary Guarantors contained in the Loan Documents (such obligations being herein collectively called the “Guaranteed Obligations”). The Subsidiary Guarantors hereby further jointly and severally agree that if the Borrower or any other Obligor shall fail to pay any amount in full when due or perform any such obligation (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), the Subsidiary Guarantors will promptly pay the same or perform such obligation at the place and in the manner specified herein or in the relevant Loan Document, as the case may be, without any demand or notice whatsoever, and that in the case of any extension of time of payment or performance or renewal of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, the same will be promptly paid in full or performed when due (whether at extended maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) in accordance with the terms of such extension or renewal.

13.02 Obligations Unconditional. The obligations of the Subsidiary Guarantors under Section 13.01 shall constitute a guaranty of payment and performance and not of collection and are absolute and unconditional, joint and several, irrespective of the value, genuineness, validity, regularity or enforceability of the Guaranteed Obligations under this Agreement or any other agreement or instrument referred to herein, or any substitution, release or exchange of any other guarantee of or security for any of the Guaranteed Obligations, and, to the fullest extent permitted by all applicable Laws, irrespective of any other circumstance whatsoever that might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge or defense of a surety or guarantor, it being the intent of this Section 13.02 that the obligations of the Subsidiary Guarantors hereunder shall be absolute and unconditional, joint and several, under any and all circumstances. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, it is agreed that the occurrence of any one or more of the following shall not alter or impair the liability of the Subsidiary Guarantors hereunder, which shall remain absolute and unconditional as described above:

-103-


The Subsidiary Guarantors hereby expressly waive diligence, presentment, demand of payment, protest and all notices whatsoever, and any requirement that the Administrative Agent or any Lender exhaust any right, power or remedy or proceed against the Borrower or any other Subsidiary Guarantor under this Agreement or any other agreement or instrument referred to herein, or against any other Person under any other guarantee of, or security for, any of the Guaranteed Obligations.

13.03 Discharge Only Upon Payment in Full. Subject to any prior release herefrom of any Subsidiary Guarantor by the Administrative Agent in accordance with (and pursuant to authority granted to the Administrative Agent under) the terms of this Agreement, each Subsidiary Guarantor’s obligations hereunder shall remain in full force and effect until all of the Guaranteed Obligations shall have been indefeasibly paid in full in cash (other than Warrant Obligations and inchoate indemnification and expense reimbursement obligations for which no claim has been made) and all other financing arrangements among the Borrower or any Subsidiary Guarantor and the Secured Parties under or in connection with this Agreement and each other Loan Document shall have terminated (herein, the “Termination Conditions”), and until the prior and complete satisfaction of the Termination Conditions all of the rights and remedies under this Guaranty and the other Loan Documents shall survive.

(iv) (A) any rights to assert against the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties any defense (legal or equitable), set-off, counterclaim, or claim which such Subsidiary Guarantor may now or at any time hereafter have against any other guarantor of the Guaranteed Obligations or any third party liable to the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties; (B) any defense, set-off, counterclaim or claim, of any kind or nature, arising directly or indirectly from the present or future lack of perfection, sufficiency, validity or enforceability of the Guaranteed Obligations or any security therefor; (C) any defense such Subsidiary Guarantor has to performance hereunder, and any right such Subsidiary Guarantor has to be exonerated, arising by reason of: (1) the impairment or suspension of the Administrative Agent’s and the Secured Parties’ rights or remedies against any other guarantor of the Guaranteed Obligations; (2) the alteration by the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties of the Guaranteed Obligations; (3) any discharge of the obligations of any other guarantor of the Guaranteed Obligations to the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties by operation of law as a result of the Administrative Agent’s and the Secured Parties’ intervention or omission; or (4) the acceptance by the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties of anything in partial satisfaction of the Guaranteed Obligations; and (D) the benefit of any statute of limitations affecting such Subsidiary Guarantor’s liability hereunder or the enforcement thereof, and any act which shall defer or delay the operation of any statute of limitations applicable to the Guaranteed Obligations shall similarly operate to defer or delay the operation of such statute of limitations applicable to such Subsidiary Guarantor’s liability hereunder; and

(v) any defense arising by reason of or deriving from (A) any claim or defense based upon an election of remedies by the Administrative Agent and the other Secured Parties; or (B) any election by the Administrative Agent and the other Secured Parties under any provision of any state or federal bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law to limit the amount of, or any collateral securing, its claim against the Subsidiary Guarantors.

-105-


13.05 Reinstatement. The obligations of the Subsidiary Guarantors under this Section 13 shall be automatically reinstated if and to the extent that for any reason any payment by or on behalf of the Borrower in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations is at any time rescinded, annulled, avoided, set aside, invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or must be otherwise restored or repaid by any holder of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, whether as a result of any proceedings in bankruptcy or reorganization, equitable cause or otherwise, and the Subsidiary Guarantors jointly and severally agree that they will indemnify the Secured Parties on demand for all reasonable costs and expenses (including fees of counsel) incurred by such Persons in connection with such rescission, repayment or restoration, including any such costs and expenses incurred in defending against any claim alleging that such payment constituted a preference, fraudulent transfer or similar payment under any state or federal bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law. The provisions of this Section 13.05 shall survive termination of this Guaranty.

13.06 Subrogation. The Subsidiary Guarantors hereby jointly and severally agree that, until the prior and complete satisfaction of all Termination Conditions, they (i) shall have no right of subrogation with respect to the Guaranteed Obligations and (ii) (ii) waive any right to enforce any remedy which the Secured Parties or the Administrative Agent now have or may hereafter have against the Borrower, any endorser or any other guarantor of all or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations or any other Person, and each Subsidiary Guarantor waives any benefit of, and any right to participate in, any security or collateral that may from time to time be given to the Secured Parties and the Administrative Agent to secure the payment or performance of all or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations or any other liability of the Borrower to the Secured Parties. Should any Subsidiary Guarantor have the right, notwithstanding the foregoing, to exercise its subrogation rights prior to complete satisfaction of the Termination Conditions, each Subsidiary Guarantor hereby expressly and irrevocably (A) subordinates any and all rights at law or in equity to subrogation, reimbursement, exoneration, contribution, indemnification or set-off that such Subsidiary Guarantor may have prior to the complete satisfaction of the Termination Conditions, and (B) waives any and all defenses available to a surety, guarantor or accommodation co-obligor until all Termination Conditions are satisfied in full. Each Subsidiary Guarantor acknowledges and agrees that this subordination is intended to benefit the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties and shall not limit or otherwise affect such Subsidiary Guarantor’s liability hereunder or the enforceability of this Guaranty, and that the Administrative Agent, the Secured Parties and their respective successors and assigns are intended third party beneficiaries of the waivers and agreements set forth in this Section 13.06.

13.07 Remedies. The Subsidiary Guarantors jointly and severally agree that, as between the Subsidiary Guarantors, on one hand, and the Administrative Agent and the Lenders, on the other hand, the obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement and under the other Loan Documents may be declared to be forthwith due and payable as provided in Section 11 (and shall be deemed to have become automatically due and payable in the circumstances provided in Section 11) for purposes of Section 13.01 notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition, including any such stay upon an Insolvency Proceeding, preventing such declaration (or such obligations from becoming automatically due and payable) as against the Borrower and that, in the event of such declaration (or such obligations being deemed to have become automatically due and payable), such obligations (whether or not due and payable by the Borrower) shall forthwith become due and payable by the Subsidiary Guarantors for purposes of Section 13.01.

 

-106-


13.08 Instrument for the Payment of Money. Each Subsidiary Guarantor hereby acknowledges that the guarantee in this Section 13 constitutes an instrument for the payment of money, and consents and agrees that the Administrative Agent and the Lenders, at their sole option, in the event of a dispute by such Subsidiary Guarantor in the payment of any moneys due hereunder, shall have the right to proceed by motion for summary judgment in lieu of complaint pursuant to N.Y. Civ. Prac. L&R § 3213.

13.09 Continuing Guarantee. The guarantee in this Section 13 is a continuing guarantee, and shall apply to all Guaranteed Obligations whenever arising.

13.10 Contribution with Respect to Guaranteed Obligations.

(a) To the extent that any Subsidiary Guarantor shall make a payment under this Guaranty (a “Guarantor Payment”) which, taking into account all other Guarantor Payments then previously or concurrently made by any other Subsidiary Guarantor, exceeds the amount which otherwise would have been paid by or attributable to such Subsidiary Guarantor if each Subsidiary Guarantor had paid the aggregate Guaranteed Obligations satisfied by such Guarantor Payment in the same proportion as such Subsidiary Guarantor’s “Allocable Amount” (as defined below) (as determined immediately prior to such Guarantor Payment) bore to the aggregate Allocable Amounts of each of the Subsidiary Guarantors as determined immediately prior to the making of such Guarantor Payment, then, following the prior and complete satisfaction of the Termination Conditions, such Subsidiary Guarantor shall be entitled to receive contribution and indemnification payments from, and be reimbursed by, each other Subsidiary Guarantor for the amount of such excess, pro rata based upon their respective Allocable Amounts in effect immediately prior to such Guarantor Payment.

(b) As of any date of determination, the “Allocable Amount” of any Subsidiary Guarantor shall be equal to the maximum amount of the claim which could then be recovered from such Subsidiary Guarantor under this Agreement without rendering such claim voidable or avoidable under any state or federal bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law or other applicable Law.

(c) This 13.10 is intended only to define the relative rights of the Subsidiary Guarantors, and nothing set forth in this 13.10 is intended to or shall impair the obligations of the Subsidiary Guarantors, jointly and severally, to pay any amounts as and when the same shall become due and payable in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

(d) The parties hereto acknowledge that the rights of contribution and indemnification hereunder shall constitute assets of the Subsidiary Guarantor or Subsidiary Guarantors to which such contribution and indemnification is owing.

(e) The rights of the indemnifying Subsidiary Guarantors against other Subsidiary Guarantors under this Section 13.10 shall be exercisable only upon the prior and complete satisfaction of the Termination Conditions.

13.11 General Limitation on Guarantee Obligations. In any action or proceeding involving any provincial, territorial or state corporate law, or any state or federal bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or other law affecting the rights of creditors generally, if the obligations of any Subsidiary Guarantor under Section 13.01 would otherwise be held or determined to be void, invalid or unenforceable, or subordinated to the claims of any other creditors, on account of the

 

-107-


amount of its liability under Section 13.01, then, notwithstanding any other provision hereof to the contrary, the amount of such liability shall, without any further action by such Subsidiary Guarantor, the Administrative Agent, any Lender or any other Person, be automatically limited and reduced to the highest amount that is valid and enforceable and not subordinated to the claims of other creditors as determined in such action or proceeding.

SECTION 14.

MISCELLANEOUS

14.01 No Waiver. No failure on the part of the Administrative Agent or the Lenders to exercise and no delay in exercising, and no course of dealing with respect to, any right, power or privilege under any Loan Document shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege under any Loan Document preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege. The remedies provided herein are cumulative and not exclusive of any remedies provided by law.

14.02 Notices. All notices, requests, instructions, directions and other communications provided for herein (including any modifications of, or waivers, requests or consents under, this Agreement) or in the other Loan Documents shall be given or made in writing (including by telecopy or email) delivered, if to the Borrower, another Obligor, the Administrative Agent or any Lender, to its address specified on the signature pages hereto or its Guarantee Assumption Agreement, as the case may be, or at such other address as shall be designated by such party in a written notice to the other parties. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or therein, all such communications shall be deemed to have been duly given upon receipt of a legible copy thereof, in each case given or addressed as aforesaid. All such communications provided for herein by telecopy shall be confirmed in writing promptly after the delivery of such communication (it being understood that non-receipt of written confirmation of such communication shall not invalidate such communication).

14.03 Expenses, Indemnification, Etc.

(a) Expenses. Each Obligor, jointly and severally, agrees to pay or reimburse (i) the Administrative Agent and the Lenders and their respective Affiliates for all of their reasonable and documented out of pocket costs and expenses (including the reasonable and documented out of pocket fees, expenses, charges and disbursements of Sullivan & Cromwell LLP, counsel to the Lenders, the fees (if necessary) of local counsel for both of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders in each relevant material jurisdiction, and any sales, goods and services or other similar taxes applicable thereto, and reasonable and documented printing, reproduction, document delivery, communication and travel costs) in connection with (x) the negotiation, preparation, execution and delivery of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and the making of the Loans (exclusive of post-closing costs), (y) post-closing costs (including, without limitation, costs of the administration of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents) and (z) the negotiation or preparation of any modification, supplement or waiver of any of the terms of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents (whether or not consummated); provided, that, in the case of such expenses on the Closing Date, the amount of such expenses obligated to be paid by the Obligors shall not exceed $350,000 and (ii) each of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders for all of their documented out of pocket costs and expenses (including the fees and expenses of any legal counsel) in connection with the enforcement, exercise or protection of their rights in connection with this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, including their rights under this Section 14.03, or in connection with the Loans made hereunder, including such out-of-pocket expenses incurred during any workout, restructuring or negotiations in respect of such Loans.

 

-108-


(b) Indemnification. Each Obligor, jointly and severally, hereby indemnifies the Administrative Agent (and any sub-agent thereof), the Lenders and their respective Affiliates, directors, officers, employees, attorneys, agents, advisors and controlling parties (each, an “Indemnified Party”) from and against, and agrees to hold them harmless against, any and all Claims and Losses of any kind including reasonable and documented out of pocket fees and disbursements of any counsel for each Indemnified Party (limited to one legal counsel in each relevant jurisdiction), that may be incurred by or asserted or awarded against any Indemnified Party, in each case arising out of or in connection with or relating to (i) Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents or the Transactions, (ii) any use made or proposed to be made with the proceeds of the Loans, (ii) any actual or alleged presence or release of Hazardous Materials on or from any property owned or operated by any Obligor or any of its Subsidiaries, or (iv) any actual or prospective claim, investigation, litigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, whether based on contract, tort, or any other theory, whether or not such investigation, litigation or proceeding is brought by any Obligor, any of its Subsidiaries, shareholders or creditors, an Indemnified Party or any other Person, or an Indemnified Party is otherwise a party thereto, and whether or not any of the conditions precedent set forth in Section 6 are satisfied or the other transactions contemplated by this Agreement are consummated, except to the extent such Claim or Loss is found in a final, non-appealable judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from such Indemnified Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. No Obligor shall assert any claim against any Indemnified Party, on any theory of liability, for consequential, indirect, special or punitive damages arising out of or otherwise relating to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents or any of the Transactions or the actual or proposed use of the proceeds of the Loans. The Borrower, its Subsidiaries and Affiliates and their respective directors, officers, employees, attorneys, agents, advisors and controlling parties are each sometimes referred to in this Agreement as a “Borrower Party”. No Lender shall assert any claim against any Borrower Party, on any theory of liability, for consequential, indirect, special or punitive damages arising out of or otherwise relating to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents or any of the Transactions or the actual or proposed use of the proceeds of the Loans. This Section shall not apply to Taxes other than Taxes relating to a non-Tax Claim or Loss governed by this Section 14.03(b).

14.04 Amendments, Etc. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, any provision of this Agreement and any other Loan Document (except for the Warrant, which may be amended, waived or supplemented in accordance with the terms thereof) may be modified or supplemented only by an instrument in writing signed by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Majority Lenders; provided that:

(a) any such modification or supplement that is disproportionately adverse to any Lender as compared to other Lenders or subjects any Lender to any additional obligation shall not be effective without the consent of such affected Lender;

 

-109-


(b) the consent of all of the Lenders shall be required to:

(i) amend, modify, discharge, terminate or waive any of the terms of this Agreement or any other Loan Agreement if such amendment, modification, discharge, termination or waiver would increase the amount of the Loans or Commitment, reduce the fees payable hereunder, reduce interest rates or other amounts payable with respect to the Loans, extend any date fixed for payment of principal (it being understood that the waiver of any prepayment of Loans shall not constitute an extension of any date fixed for payment of principal), interest or other amounts payable relating to the Loans or extend the repayment dates of the Loans; provided, for the avoidance of doubt, that any waiver or amendment relating to an Event of Default or Default arising out of breach or prospective breach of the Minimum Revenue Covenant or the Leverage Ratio Covenant shall only require the consent of the Majority Lenders;

(ii) amend, modify, discharge, terminate or waive any Security Document if the effect is to release all or substantially all of the Collateral subject thereto other than pursuant to the terms hereof or thereof; or

(iii) amend this Section 14.04 or the definition of “Majority Lenders”.

14.05 Successors and Assigns.

(a) General. The provisions of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto or thereto and their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby or thereby, except that no Obligor may assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder (except in connection with an event permitted under Section 9.03) without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent. Any Lender may assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder or under any of the other Loan Documents (i) to an assignee in accordance with the provisions of Section 14.05(b), (ii) by way of participation in accordance with the provisions of Section 14.05(e), or (iii) by way of pledge or assignment of a security interest subject to the restrictions of Section 14.05(f). Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, shall be construed to confer upon any Person (other than the parties hereto, their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, Participants to the extent provided in Section 14.05(e) and, to the extent expressly contemplated hereby, the Related Parties of each of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders) any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or by reason of this Agreement.

(b) Assignments by Lender. Any Lender may at any time assign to one or more Eligible Transferees (or, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, to any Person) all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of the Loans at the time owing to it) and the other Loan Documents; provided that (i) no such assignment shall be made to any Obligor, any Affiliate of any Obligor, any employees or directors of any Obligor at any time and (ii) no such assignment shall be made without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent. The consent of the Borrower (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) shall be required unless (x) a Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing at the time of such assignment or (y) such assignment is to an Eligible Transferee described in clause (vi) of the definition thereof); provided that the Borrower shall be deemed to have consented to any such assignment unless it shall object thereto

 

-110-


by written notice to the Administrative Agent within five (5) Business Days after having received written notice thereof. At the request of the Borrower, the Oaktree Lender agrees to assign to any Person identified to the Administrative Agent in writing prior to the Closing Date (or, with respect to any other Person (such Person to be reasonably acceptable to the Oaktree Lender), to use its commercially reasonable efforts to assign) within forty-five (45) days from the date hereof (subject to applicable Law) no more than $40,000,000 aggregate principal amount of Loans and Commitments pro rata across the respective Tranches of Loans and Applicable Commitments then outstanding to a party who has provided the Royalty Interest Financing for a purchase price equal to the Oaktree Lender’s valuation of the Loans plus accrued and unpaid interest on the Loans so assigned to the date of such assignment and such assignment shall be on customary LSTA terms (except such assignment shall be on a non-recourse basis to the Oaktree Lender). Subject to the recording thereof by the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 14.05(d), and to receipt by the Administrative Agent of a processing and recordation fee in the amount of $3,500 (provided that the Administrative Agent may, in its sole discretion, elect to waive such processing and recordation fee in the case of any assignment) from and after the date such Assignment and Assumption is recorded in the Register, the assignee thereunder shall be a party to this Agreement and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, have the rights and obligations of the Lender under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and correspondingly the assigning Lender shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Assumption covering all of the Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto) and the other Loan Documents but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Section 5 and Section 14.03. Any assignment or transfer by the Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this Section 14.05(b) shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with Section 14.05(e).

(c) Amendments to Loan Documents. Each of the Administrative Agent, the Lenders and the Obligors agrees to enter into such amendments to the Loan Documents, and such additional Security Documents and other instruments and agreements, in each case in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent, the Lenders and the Obligors, as shall reasonably be necessary to implement and give effect to any assignment made under this Section 14.05.

(d) Register. The Administrative Agent, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrower, shall maintain at one of its offices in the United States a copy of each Assignment and Assumption delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders, and the Commitments of, and principal amounts (and stated interest) of the Loans owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower and any Lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior written notice. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, any assignment of any Loan shall be effective only upon appropriate entries with respect thereto being made in the Register.

 

-111-


(e) Participations. Any Lender may at any time, without the consent of, or notice to, the Borrower, sell participations to any Eligible Transferee (other than a natural person or any Obligor or any of its Affiliates or Subsidiaries) (each, a “Participant”) in all or a portion of the Lender’s rights and/or obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of the Commitment and/or the Loans owing to it); provided that (i) such Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations and (iii) the Borrower shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection therewith. Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which any Lender sells such a participation shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right to enforce the Loan Documents and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of the Loan Documents; provided that such agreement or instrument may provide that such Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, modification or waiver that would (i) increase or extend the term of such Lender’s Commitment, (ii) extend the date fixed for the payment of principal of or interest on the Loans or any portion of any fee hereunder payable to the Participant, (iii) reduce the amount of any such payment of principal, or (iv) reduce the rate at which interest is payable thereon to a level below the rate at which the Participant is entitled to receive such interest. Subject to Section 14.05(f), the Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 5.01 or 5.03 (subject to the requirements and limitations therein, including the requirements under Section 5.03(f) (it being understood that the documentation required under Section 5.03(f) shall be delivered to the participating Lender)) to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to Section 14.05(b); provided that such Participant (i) agrees to be subject to the provisions of Section 5.04 as if it were an assignee under Section 14.05(b) and (ii) shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 5.01 or 5.03, with respect to any participation, than its participating Lender would have been entitled to receive, except to the extent such entitlement to receive a greater payment results from a change in Law that occurs after the Participant acquired the applicable participation. To the extent permitted by Law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 4.03(a) as though it were a Lender. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrower, 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 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 or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations. The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, the Administrative Agent (in its capacity as Administrative Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.

 

-112-


(f) Limitations on Rights of Participants. A Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 5.01 or 5.03 than such Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such Participant, unless the sale of the participation to such Participant is made with the Borrower’s prior written consent.

(g) Certain Pledges. Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under the Loan Documents to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank; provided that no such pledge or assignment shall release such Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.

Each party hereto irrevocably waives to the fullest extent permitted by law any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of the venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document and hereby further irrevocably waives to the fullest extent permitted by law any claim that any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.

-114-


14.15 No Fiduciary Relationship.

This Agreement and the other Loan Documents do not create a joint venture among the parties.

14.16 Confidentiality. The Administrative Agent and each Lender agree to keep confidential all non-public information provided to them by any Obligor pursuant to this Agreement that is designated by such Obligor as confidential in accordance with its customary procedures for handling its own confidential information; provided that nothing herein shall prevent the Administrative Agent or any Lender from disclosing any such information (i) to the Administrative Agent, any other Lender, any Affiliate of a Lender or any Eligible Transferee or other assignee permitted under Section 14.05(b), (ii) subject to an agreement to comply with the provisions of this Section, to any actual or prospective direct or indirect counterparty to any Hedging Agreement (or any professional advisor to such counterparty), (iii) to its employees, officers, directors, agents, attorneys, accountants, trustees and other professional advisors or those of any of its affiliates (collectively, its “Related Parties”), (iv) upon the request or demand of any Governmental Authority or any Regulatory Authority purporting to have jurisdiction over such Person or its Related Parties (including any self-regulatory authority, such as the National Association of Insurance Commissioners), (v) in response to any order of any court or other Governmental Authority or as may otherwise be required pursuant to any Law, (vi) if requested or required to do so in connection with any litigation or similar proceeding, (vii) that has been publicly disclosed (other than as a result of a disclosure in violation of this Section 14.16), (viii) to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners or any similar organization or 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, (ix) in connection with the exercise of any remedy hereunder or under any other Loan Document, (x) on a confidential basis to (A) any rating agency in connection with rating the Borrower or its Subsidiaries or the Loans or (B) the CUSIP Service Bureau or any similar agency in connection with the issuance and monitoring of CUSIP numbers of other market identifiers with respect to the Loans or (xi) to any other party hereto; provided that, in the case of disclosure pursuant to clause (iv), (v) and (vi) above, the Administrative Agent or applicable Lender, as applicable, shall promptly provide notice to the Borrower to the extent reasonable and not prohibited by Law or any applicable Governmental Authority.

14.17 Interest Rate Limitation. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if at any time the interest rate applicable to any Loan, together with all fees, charges and other amounts that are treated as interest on such Loan under applicable Law (collectively, “charges”), shall exceed the maximum lawful rate (the “Maximum Rate”) that may be contracted for, charged, taken, received or reserved by the Administrative Agent and the Lender holding such Loan in accordance with applicable Law, the rate of interest payable in respect of such Loan hereunder, together with all charges payable in respect thereof, shall be limited to the Maximum Rate. To the extent lawful, the interest and charges that would have been paid in respect of such Loan but were not paid as a result of the operation of this Section shall be cumulated and the interest and charges payable to such Lender in respect of other Loans or periods shall be increased (but not above the amount collectible at the Maximum Rate therefor) until such cumulated amount, together with interest thereon at the Federal Funds Effective Rate for each day to the date of repayment, shall have been received by such Lender. Any amount collected by such Lender that exceeds the maximum amount collectible at the Maximum Rate shall be applied to the reduction of the principal balance of such Loan so that at no time shall the interest and charges paid or payable in respect of such Loan exceed the maximum amount collectible at the Maximum Rate.

 

-115-


14.18 Judgment Currency.

(a) If, for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court, it is necessary to convert a sum due hereunder in Dollars into another currency, the parties hereto agree, to the fullest extent permitted by Law, that the rate of exchange used shall be that at which, in accordance with normal banking procedures, the Administrative Agent could purchase Dollars with such other currency at the buying spot rate of exchange in the New York foreign exchange market on the Business Day immediately preceding that on which any such judgment, or any relevant part thereof, is given.

(b) The obligations of the Obligors in respect of any sum due to the Administrative Agent hereunder and under the other Loan Documents shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency other than Dollars, be discharged only to the extent that on the Business Day following receipt by the Administrative Agent of any sum adjudged to be so due in such other currency the Administrative Agent may, in accordance with normal banking procedures, purchase Dollars with such other currency. If the amount of Dollars so purchased is less than the sum originally due to the Administrative Agent in Dollars, the Borrower agrees, to the fullest extent that it may effectively do so, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify the Administrative Agent against such loss. If the amount of Dollars so purchased exceeds the sum originally due to the Administrative Agent in Dollars, the Administrative Agent shall remit such excess to the Borrower.

14.19 USA PATRIOT Act. The Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereby notify the Obligors that pursuant to the requirements of the USA PATRIOT Act (Title III of Pub. L. 107-56 (signed into law October 26, 2001)) (the “Patriot Act”), they are required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies the Obligors, which information includes the name and address of each Obligor and other information that will allow such Person to identify such Obligor in accordance with the Patriot Act.

14.20 Acknowledgement and Consent to Bail-In of EEA Financial Institutions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any Loan Document or in any other agreement, arrangement or understanding among any such parties, each party hereto acknowledges that any liability of any EEA Financial Institution arising under any Loan Document, to the extent such liability is unsecured, may be subject to the Write-Down and Conversion Powers of an EEA Resolution Authority and agrees and consents to, and acknowledges and agrees to be bound by:

(a) the application of any Write-Down and Conversion Powers by an EEA Resolution Authority to any such liabilities arising hereunder which may be payable to it by any party hereto that is an EEA Financial Institution; and

(b) the effects of any Bail-In Action on any such liability, including, if applicable:

(i) a reduction in full or in part or cancellation of any such liability;

 

-116-


(ii) a conversion of all, or a portion of, such liability into shares or other instruments of ownership in such EEA Financial Institution, its parent undertaking, or a bridge institution that may be issued to it or otherwise conferred on it, and that such shares or other instruments of ownership will be accepted by it in lieu of any rights with respect to any such liability under this Agreement or any other Loan Document; or

(i) the variation of the terms of such liability in connection with the exercise of the Write-Down and Conversion Powers of any EEA Resolution Authority.
