8.    Miscellaneous. Unless stated otherwise (a) the singular number includes the plural and vice versa and words of any gender include each other gender, in each case, as appropriate, (b) headings and captions may not be construed in interpreting provisions, (c) this Amendment must be construed -- and its performance enforced -- under New York law, and (d) if any part of this Amendment is for any reason found to be unenforceable, all other portions of it nevertheless remain enforceable.
9.    Electronic Execution; Electronic Records; Counterparts.
(a)    This Amendment, any Loan Document and any other Communication, including Communications required to be in writing, may be in the form of an Electronic Record and may be executed using Electronic Signatures. Each of the Loan Parties and each of Administrative Agent and the Credit Parties agree that any Electronic Signature on or associated with any Communication shall be valid and binding on such Person to the same extent as a manual, original signature, and that any Communication entered into by Electronic Signature, will constitute the legal, valid and binding obligation of such Person enforceable against such Person in accordance with the terms thereof to the same extent as if a manually executed original signature was delivered. Any Communication may be executed in as many counterparts as necessary or convenient, including both paper and electronic counterparts, but all such counterparts are one and the same Communication. For the avoidance of doubt, the authorization under this paragraph may include, without limitation, use or acceptance of a manually signed paper Communication which has been converted into electronic form (such as scanned into PDF format), or an electronically signed Communication converted into another format, for transmission, delivery and/or retention. Administrative Agent and each of the Credit Parties may, at its option, create one or more Electronic Copies, which shall be deemed created in the ordinary course of such Person’s business, and destroy the original paper document. All Communications in the form of an Electronic Record, including an Electronic Copy, shall be considered an original for all purposes, and shall have the same legal effect, validity and enforceability as a paper record. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, neither Administrative Agent nor any L/C Issuer is under any obligation to accept an Electronic Signature in any form or in any format unless expressly agreed to by such Person pursuant to procedures approved by it; provided, further, without limiting the foregoing, (a) to the extent Administrative Agent and/or an L/C Issuer has agreed to accept such Electronic Signature, Administrative Agent and each of the Credit Parties shall be entitled to rely on any such Electronic Signature purportedly given by or on behalf of any Loan Party and/or any Credit Party without further verification and (b) upon the request of Administrative Agent or any Credit Party, any Electronic Signature shall be promptly followed by such manually executed counterpart. For purposes hereof, “Electronic Record” and “Electronic Signature” shall have the meanings assigned to them, respectively, by 15 USC §7006, as it may be amended from time to time.
Page 5


(b)    The Credit Parties shall neither be responsible for nor have any duty to ascertain or inquire into the sufficiency, validity, enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of this Agreement or any other agreement, instrument or document (including, for the avoidance of doubt, in connection with Administrative Agent’s or the applicable L/C Issuer’s reliance on any Electronic Signature transmitted by telecopy, emailed .pdf or any other electronic means). The Credit Parties shall be entitled to rely on, and shall incur no liability under or in respect of this Agreement by acting upon, any Communication (which writing may be a fax, any electronic message, Internet or intranet website posting or other distribution or signed using an Electronic Signature) or any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to be genuine and signed or sent or otherwise authenticated (whether or not such Person in fact meets the requirements set forth in the Guaranty for being the maker thereof).
(c)    Each Loan Party and each Credit Party hereby waives (i) any argument, defense or right to contest the legal effect, validity or enforceability of this Amendment, any other Loan Document based solely on the lack of paper original copies of this Amendment, such other Loan Document, and (ii) waives any claim against Administrative Agent, each Credit Party and each Related Party for any liabilities arising solely from Administrative Agent’s and/or any Credit Party’s reliance on or use of Electronic Signatures, including any liabilities arising as a result of the failure of the Loan Parties to use any available security measures in connection with the execution, delivery or transmission of any Electronic Signature.
10.    Parties. This Amendment binds and inures to the Loan Parties and the Credit Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
11.    Entireties. The Credit Agreement as amended by this Amendment represents the final agreement between the parties about the subject matter of the Credit Agreement as amended by this Amendment and may not be contradicted by evidence of prior, contemporaneous, or subsequent oral agreements of the parties. There are no unwritten oral agreements between the parties.

39



Loans shall be made upon Borrower’s irrevocable notice to Administrative Agent, which may be given by (x) telephone or (y) a Committed Loan Notice, provided that any telephonic notice must be confirmed immediately by delivery to Administrative Agent of a Committed Loan Notice. Each such Committed Loan Notice must be received by Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time (i) on the date of the request for any Borrowing of Daily SOFR Rate Loans or Base Rate Loans and (ii) two (2) Business Days prior to the requested date of any Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Term SOFR Rate Loans or conversion of Term SOFR Rate Loans to Daily SOFR Rate Loans or Base Rate Loans.

Unless otherwise specified herein, no conversion from Term SOFR Rate Loans may be made other than at the end of the corresponding Interest Period unless Borrower makes all payments required pursuant to Section 3.05 resulting therefrom. Each Committed Loan Notice shall specify (i) whether Borrower is requesting a Revolving Credit Borrowing, a Term A-1 Borrowing, a Term A-2 Borrowing, a conversion of Revolving Credit Loans or Term Loans from one Type to the other, or a continuation of either Term SOFR Rate Loans or Daily SOFR Rate Loans, (ii) the requested date of the Borrowing, conversion or continuation, as the case may be (which shall be a Business Day), (iii) the principal amount of Loans to be borrowed, converted or continued, (iv) the Type of Loans to be borrowed or to which existing Revolving Credit Loans or Term Loans are to be converted, and (v) if applicable, the duration of the Interest Period with respect thereto.

(b)Following receipt of a Committed Loan Notice, Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender of the amount of its Applicable Percentage under the applicable Facility of the applicable Revolving Credit Loans or Term Loans, and if no timely notice of a conversion or continuation is provided by Borrower, Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender of the details of any automatic conversion to Daily SOFR Rate Loans described in the preceding subsection. In the case of a Revolving Credit Borrowing or a Term Borrowing, each Appropriate Lender shall make the amount of its Loan available to Administrative Agent in immediately available funds at Administrative Agent’s Office not later than 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the Business Day specified in the applicable Committed Loan Notice. Upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions set forth in Section 6.02 (and, if such Borrowing is the initial Credit Extension, Section 6.01), Administrative Agent shall make all funds so received available to Borrower in like funds as received by Administrative Agent either by (i) crediting the account of Borrower on the books of Bank of America with the amount of such funds or (ii) wire transfer of such funds, in each case in accordance with instructions provided to (and reasonably acceptable to) Administrative Agent by Borrower; provided, however, that if, on the date the Committed Loan Notice with respect to a Revolving Credit Borrowing is given by Borrower, there are L/C Borrowings outstanding, then the proceeds of such Revolving Credit Borrowing, first, shall be applied to the payment in full of any such L/C Borrowings, and second, shall be made available to Borrower as provided above.
(c)Administrative Agent shall promptly notify Borrower and the Lenders of the interest rate applicable to any Interest Period for Term SOFR Rate Loans upon determination of the same.
40



(d)Without limitation of any other conditions herein, a Borrowing or continuation of, or conversion to Term SOFR Rate Loans shall not be permitted if:
(i)an Event of Default or a Default has occurred and is continuing and has not been waived by Required Lenders or all Lenders, as applicable;
(ii)after giving effect to the requested Revolving Credit Borrowing or continuation of, or conversion to. Term SOFR Rate Loans under the Revolving Credit Facility, the sum of all Revolving Credit Borrowings under the Facility would exceed the Aggregate CommitmentsRevolving Credit Facility;
(iii)the requested Borrowing or continuation of or conversion to Term SOFR Rate Loans would cause more than eightten (810) Interest Periods to be in effect at any one (1) time for Term SOFR Rate Loans, after giving effect to all Term SOFR Rate Loans, all conversions of Loans from one (1) Type to another, and all continuations of Loans as the same Type;
(iv)the requested interest period does not conform to the definition of Interest Period herein; or
(v)any of the circumstances referred to in Section 3.03 hereof shall apply with respect to the requested Borrowing or continuation of or conversion to Term SOFR Rate Loans.
(e)With respect to Term SOFR and Daily Simple SOFR, Administrative Agent will have the right to make Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, any amendments implementing such Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement or any other Loan Document; provided that, with respect to any such amendment effected, Administrative Agent shall post each such amendment implementing such Conforming Changes to Borrower and the Lenders reasonably promptly after such amendment becomes effective.
(f)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, any Lender may exchange, continue or rollover all of the portion of its Loans in connection with any refinancing, extension, loan modification or similar transaction permitted by the terms of this Agreement, pursuant to a cashless settlement mechanism approved by Borrower, Administrative Agent, and such Lender.
2.03    Letters of Credit.
(a)General. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, in addition to the Loans provided for in Section 2.01, Borrower may request that any L/C Issuer, in reliance on the agreements of the Revolving Credit Lenders set forth in this Section 2.03, to issue (or to amend, extend, reinstate or renew Letters of Credit previously issued by such L/C Issuer), at any time and from time to time during the Availability Period, Letters of Credit denominated in Dollars for its own account or the account of any of its Subsidiaries in such form as is acceptable to Administrative Agent and such L/C Issuer in their reasonable determination, and each L/C Issuer further agrees to honor drawings under the Letters of Credit. Letters of Credit issued hereunder shall constitute utilization of the Revolving Credit Commitments.
41



(b)Notice of Issuance, Amendment, Extension, Reinstatement or Renewal. To request the issuance of a Letter of Credit (or the amendment of the terms and conditions, extension of the terms and conditions, extension of the expiration date, or reinstatement of amounts paid, or renewal of an outstanding Letter of Credit), Borrower shall deliver (or transmit by electronic communication, if arrangements for doing so have been approved by the applicable L/C Issuer) to an L/C Issuer selected by it and to Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m. at least two (2) Business Days (or such later date and time as Administrative Agent and such L/C Issuer may agree in a particular instance in their sole discretion) prior to the proposed issuance date or date of amendment, as the case may be a notice requesting the issuance of a Letter of Credit, or identifying the Letter of Credit to be amended, extended, reinstated or renewed, and specifying the date of issuance, amendment, extension, reinstatement or renewal (which shall be a Business Day), the date on which such Letter of Credit is to expire (which shall comply with clause (d) of this Section 2.03), the amount of such Letter of Credit, the name and address of the beneficiary thereof, the purpose and nature of the requested Letter of Credit and such other information as shall be necessary to prepare, amend, extend, reinstate or renew such Letter of Credit. If requested by the applicable L/C Issuer, Borrower also shall submit a Letter of Credit Application in connection with any request for a Letter of Credit. In the event of any inconsistency between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the terms and conditions of any Letter of Credit Application or other agreement submitted by Borrower to, or entered into by Borrower with, an L/C Issuer relating to any Letter of Credit, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall control.
Unless the applicable L/C Issuer has received written notice from any Revolving Credit Lender, Administrative Agent or any Loan Party, at least one (1) Business Day prior to the requested date of issuance or amendment of the applicable Letter of Credit, that one (1) or more applicable conditions contained in Section 6.02 shall not then be satisfied, then, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, such L/C Issuer shall, on the requested date, issue a Letter of Credit for the account of Borrower or the applicable Subsidiary or enter into the applicable amendment, as the case may be, in each case in accordance with such L/C Issuer’s usual and customary business practices.
If Borrower so requests, the applicable L/C Issuer agrees to issue a Letter of Credit that has automatic extension provisions (each, an “Auto-Extension Letter of Credit”); provided that any such Auto-Extension Letter of Credit shall permit such L/C Issuer to prevent any such extension at least once in each twelve-month period (commencing with the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit) by giving prior notice to the beneficiary thereof not later than a day (the “Non-Extension Notice Date”) in each such twelve-month period to be agreed upon by Borrower and the applicable L/C Issuer at the time such Letter of Credit is issued. Unless otherwise directed by the applicable L/C Issuer, Borrower shall not be required to make a specific request to such L/C Issuer for any such extension. Once an Auto-Extension Letter of Credit has been issued, the Revolving Credit Lenders shall be deemed to have authorized (but may not require) the applicable L/C Issuer to permit the extension of such Letter of Credit at any time to an expiration date not later than the date permitted pursuant to Section 2.03(d); provided, that such L/C Issuer shall not (i) permit any such extension if (A) such L/C Issuer has determined that it would not be permitted, or would have no obligation, at such time to issue such Letter of Credit in its extended form under the terms hereof (except that the expiration date may be extended to a date that is no more than one (1) year from the then-current expiration date) or (B) it has received notice (which may be in writing or by telephone (if promptly confirmed in writing)) on or before the day that is seven (7) Business Days before the Non-Extension Notice Date from Administrative Agent that the Required Lenders have elected not to permit such extension or (ii) be obligated to permit such extension if it has received notice (which may be in writing or by telephone (if promptly confirmed in writing)) on or before the day that is
42



seven (7) Business Days before the Non-Extension Notice Date from Administrative Agent, any Lender or Borrower that one (1) or more of the applicable conditions set forth in Section 6.02 is not then satisfied, and in each such case directing such L/C Issuer not to permit such extension.
(c)Limitations on Amounts, Issuance and Amendment. A Letter of Credit shall be issued, amended, extended, reinstated or renewed only if (and upon issuance, amendment, extension, reinstatement or renewal of each Letter of Credit, Borrower shall be deemed to represent and warrant that), after giving effect to such issuance, amendment, extension, reinstatement or renewal (i) the aggregate amount of the outstanding Letters of Credit issued by any L/C Issuer shall not exceed its L/C Commitment, (ii) the Revolving Credit Exposure of any Revolving Credit Lender shall not exceed its Revolving Credit Commitment and (iii) the sum of the total Revolving Credit Exposures shall not exceed the total Revolving Credit Commitments.
(i)No L/C Issuer shall be under any obligation to issue any Letter of Credit if:
(A)any order, judgment or decree of any Governmental Authority or arbitrator shall by its terms purport to enjoin or restrain such L/C Issuer from issuing the Letter of Credit, or any Law applicable to such L/C Issuer or any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over such L/C Issuer shall prohibit, or request that such L/C Issuer refrain from, the issuance of letters of credit generally or the Letter of Credit in particular or shall impose upon such L/C Issuer with respect to the Letter of Credit any restriction, reserve or capital requirement (for which such L/C Issuer is not otherwise compensated hereunder) not in effect on the Closing Date, or shall impose upon such L/C Issuer any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which was not applicable on the Closing Date and which such L/C Issuer in good faith deems material to it;
(B)the issuance of such Letter of Credit would violate one (1) or more policies of such L/C Issuer applicable to letters of credit generally;
(C)except as otherwise agreed by Administrative Agent and such L/C Issuer, the Letter of Credit is in an initial stated amount less than $200,000;
(D)any Revolving Credit Lender is at that time a Defaulting Lender, unless such L/C Issuer has entered into arrangements, including the delivery of Cash Collateral, satisfactory to such L/C Issuer (in its sole discretion) with Borrower or such Revolving Credit Lender to eliminate such L/C Issuer’s actual or potential Fronting Exposure (after giving effect to Section 2.16(a)(iv)2.17(a)(iv) with respect to the Defaulting Lender arising from either the Letter of Credit then proposed to be issued or that Letter of Credit and all other L/C Obligations as to which such L/C Issuer has actual or potential Fronting Exposure, as it may elect in its sole discretion; or
(E)the Letter of Credit contains any provisions for automatic reinstatement of the stated amount after any drawing thereunder.
(ii)No L/C Issuer shall be under any obligation to amend any Letter of Credit if (A) such L/C Issuer would have no obligation at such time to issue the Letter of Credit in its amended form under the terms hereof, or (B) the beneficiary of the Letter of Credit does not accept the proposed amendment to the Letter of Credit.
43



(d)Expiration Date. Each Letter of Credit shall have a stated expiration date no later than the earlier of (i) the date twelve (12) months after the date of the issuance of such Letter of Credit (or, in the case of any extension of the expiration date thereof, whether automatic or by amendment, twelve (12) months after the then current expiration date of such Letter of Credit), unless the Required Revolving Lenders have approved such other expiration date, and (ii) the Letter of Credit Expiration Date, unless all Revolving Credit Lenders have approved such other expiration date.
(e)Participations. By the issuance of a Letter of Credit (or an amendment to a Letter of Credit increasing the amount or extending the expiration date thereof), and without any further action on the part of the applicable L/C Issuer or the Revolving Credit Lenders, such L/C Issuer hereby grants to each Revolving Credit Lender, and each Revolving Credit Lender hereby acquires from such L/C Issuer, a participation in such Letter of Credit equal to such Revolving Credit Lender’s Applicable Revolving Credit Percentage of the aggregate amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit. Each Revolving Credit Lender acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to acquire participations pursuant to this clause (e) in respect of Letters of Credit is absolute, unconditional and irrevocable and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including any amendment, extension, reinstatement or renewal of any Letter of Credit or the occurrence and continuance of a Default or reduction or termination of the Revolving Credit Commitments.
In consideration and in furtherance of the foregoing, each Revolving Credit Lender hereby absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably agrees to pay to Administrative Agent, for account of the applicable L/C Issuer, such Revolving Credit Lender’s Applicable Revolving Credit Percentage of each L/C Disbursement made by such L/C Issuer not later than 1:00 p.m. on the Business Day specified in the notice provided by Administrative Agent to the Revolving Credit Lenders pursuant to Section 2.03(f) until such L/C Disbursement is reimbursed by Borrower or at any time after any reimbursement payment is required to be refunded to Borrower for any reason, including after the Maturity Date then in effect for the Revolving Credit Facility. Such payment shall be made without any offset, abatement, withholding or reduction whatsoever. Each such payment shall be made in the same manner as provided in Section 2.02 with respect to Revolving Credit Loans made by such Revolving Credit Lender (and Section 2.02 shall apply, mutatis mutandis, to the payment obligations of the Revolving Credit Lenders), and Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to the applicable L/C Issuer the amounts so received by it from the Revolving Credit Lenders. Promptly following receipt by Administrative Agent of any payment from Borrower pursuant to Section 2.03(f), Administrative Agent shall distribute such payment to the applicable L/C Issuer or, to the extent that Lenders have made payments pursuant to this clause (e) to reimburse such L/C Issuer, then to such Revolving Credit Lenders and such L/C Issuer as their interests may appear. Any payment made by a Revolving Credit Lender pursuant to this clause (e) to reimburse an L/C Issuer for any L/C Disbursement shall not constitute a Loan and shall not relieve Borrower of its obligation to reimburse such L/C Disbursement.
Each Revolving Credit Lender further acknowledges and agrees that its participation in each Letter of Credit will be automatically adjusted to reflect such Revolving Credit Lender’s Applicable Revolving Credit Percentage of the aggregate amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit at each time such Revolving Credit Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment is amended pursuant to the operation of Section 2.13 or 2.142.15, as a result of an assignment in accordance with Section 12.06 or otherwise pursuant to this Agreement.
44



(f)Reimbursement. If an L/C Issuer shall make any L/C Disbursement in respect of a Letter of Credit, Borrower shall reimburse such L/C Issuer in respect of such L/C Disbursement by paying to Administrative Agent an amount equal to such L/C Disbursement not later than 12:00 noon on (i) the Business Day immediately following the Business Day that Borrower receives notice of such L/C Disbursement, if such notice is received prior to 10:00 a.m. or (ii) the second Business Day immediately following the day that Borrower receives such notice, if such notice is not received prior to such time, provided that, if such L/C Disbursement is not less than $1,000,000, Borrower may, subject to the conditions to borrowing set forth herein, request in accordance with Section 2.02 that such payment be financed with a Revolving Credit Borrowing of Base Rate Loans or Daily SOFR Rate Loans in an equivalent amount and, to the extent so financed, Borrower’s obligation to make such payment shall be discharged and replaced by the resulting Revolving Credit Borrowing of Base Rate Loans or Daily SOFR Rate Loans, as applicable. If Borrower fails to make such payment when due, Administrative Agent shall notify each Revolving Credit Lender of the applicable L/C Disbursement, the payment then due from Borrower in respect thereof (the “Unreimbursed Amount”) and such Revolving Credit Lender’s Applicable Revolving Credit Percentage thereof. In such event, Borrower shall be deemed to have requested a Revolving Credit Borrowing of Daily SOFR Rate Loans to be disbursed on the date of payment by the applicable L/C Issuer under a Letter of Credit in an amount equal to the Unreimbursed Amount, without regard to the minimum and multiples specified in Section 2.02 for the principal amount of Daily SOFR Rate Loans, but subject to the amount of the unutilized portion of the Aggregate CommitmentsRevolving Credit Facility and the conditions set forth in Section 6.02 (other than (x) the delivery of a Committed Loan Notice and (y) the existence of a Default (other than a Default under Section 10.01(f)) that is not an Event of Default). Any notice given by L/C Issuer or Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 2.03(f) may be given by telephone if immediately confirmed in writing; provided that the lack of such an immediate confirmation shall not affect the conclusiveness or binding effect of such notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any L/C Disbursement in respect of a Letter of Credit made by any L/C Issuer after the Maturity Date with respect to the Revolving Credit Facility shall be due and payable by Borrower on demand.
(g)Obligations Absolute. Borrower’s obligation to reimburse L/C Disbursements as provided in clause (f) of this Section 2.03 shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be performed strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement under any and all circumstances whatsoever and irrespective of:
(i)any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any Letter of Credit, or any term or provision herein or therein;
(ii)the existence of any claim, counterclaim, setoff, defense or other right that Borrower or any Subsidiary may have at any time against any beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom any such beneficiary or any such transferee may be acting), any L/C Issuer or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby or by such Letter of Credit or any agreement or instrument relating thereto, or any unrelated transaction;
(iii)any draft, demand, certificate or other document presented under a Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement in such draft or other document being untrue or inaccurate in any respect; or any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under such Letter of Credit;
45



(iv)waiver by any L/C Issuer of any requirement that exists for such L/C Issuer’s protection and not the protection of Borrower or any waiver by such L/C Issuer which does not in fact materially prejudice Borrower;
(v)honor of a demand for payment presented electronically even if such Letter of Credit required that demand be in the form of a draft;
(vi)any payment made by any L/C Issuer in respect of an otherwise complying item presented after the date specified as the expiration date of, or the date by which documents must be received under such Letter of Credit if presentation after such date is authorized by the UCC, the ISP or the UCP, as applicable;
(vii)payment by the applicable L/C Issuer under a Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or other document that does not comply strictly with the terms of such Letter of Credit; or any payment made by any L/C Issuer under such Letter of Credit to any Person purporting to be a trustee in bankruptcy, debtor-in-possession, assignee for the benefit of creditors, liquidator, receiver or other representative of or successor to any beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit, including any arising in connection with any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law; or
(viii)any other event or circumstance whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, that might, but for the provisions of this Section 2.03, constitute a legal or equitable discharge of, or provide a right of setoff against, Borrower’s obligations hereunder.
Borrower shall promptly examine a copy of each Letter of Credit and each amendment thereto that is delivered to it and, in the event of any claim of noncompliance with Borrower’s instructions or other irregularity, Borrower will promptly notify the applicable L/C Issuer. Borrower shall be conclusively deemed to have waived any such claim against each L/C Issuer and its correspondents unless such notice is given as aforesaid.
None of Administrative Agent, the Revolving Credit Lenders, any L/C Issuer, or any of their Related Parties shall have any liability or responsibility by reason of or in connection with the issuance or transfer of any Letter of Credit by the applicable L/C Issuer or any payment or failure to make any payment thereunder (irrespective of any of the circumstances referred to in the preceding sentence), or any error, omission, interruption, loss or delay in transmission or delivery of any draft, notice or other communication under or relating to any Letter of Credit (including any document required to make a drawing thereunder), any error in interpretation of technical terms, any error in translation or any consequence arising from causes beyond the control of the applicable L/C Issuer; provided that the foregoing shall not be construed to excuse an L/C Issuer from liability to Borrower to the extent of any direct damages (as opposed to consequential damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by Borrower to the extent permitted by applicable Law) suffered by Borrower that are caused by such L/C Issuer’s failure to exercise care when determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof. The parties hereto expressly agree that, in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of an L/C Issuer (as finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction), an L/C Issuer shall be deemed to have exercised care in each such determination, and that:
46



(i)an L/C Issuer may replace a purportedly lost, stolen, or destroyed original Letter of Credit or missing amendment thereto with a certified true copy marked as such or waive a requirement for its presentation;
(i)an L/C Issuer may accept documents that appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of a Letter of Credit without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, and may make payment upon presentation of documents that appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit and without regard to any non-documentary condition in such Letter of Credit;
(ii)an L/C Issuer shall have the right, in its reasonable discretion, to decline to accept such documents and to make such payment if such documents are not in strict compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit; and
(iii)this sentence shall establish the standard of care to be exercised by an L/C Issuer when determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof (and the parties hereto hereby waive, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, any standard of care inconsistent with the foregoing).
Without limiting the foregoing, none of Administrative Agent, the Lenders, any L/C Issuer, or any of their Related Parties shall have any liability or responsibility by reason of (i) any presentation that includes forged or fraudulent documents or that is otherwise affected by the fraudulent, bad faith, or illegal conduct of the beneficiary or other Person (other than Administrative Agent, the Lenders, L/C Issuer, or any of their Related Parties), (ii) an L/C Issuer declining to take-up documents and make payment (A) against documents that are fraudulent, forged, or for other reasons by which that it is entitled not to honor or (B) following Borrower’s waiver of discrepancies with respect to such documents or request for honor of such documents or (iii) an L/C Issuer retaining proceeds of a Letter of Credit based on an apparently applicable attachment order, blocking regulation, or third-party claim notified to such L/C Issuer (provided that L/C Issuer shall, upon receipt, promptly notify Borrower of such order, regulation or claim).
(h)Applicability of ISP and UCP; Limitation of Liability. Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the applicable L/C Issuer and Borrower when a Letter of Credit is issued by it, the rules of the ISP shall apply to each Letter of Credit. Notwithstanding the foregoing (except to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction determines in a final and nonappealable judgment that the L/C Issuer acted with gross negligence or willful misconduct), no L/C Issuer shall be responsible to Borrower for, and no L/C Issuer’s rights and remedies against Borrower shall be impaired by, any action or inaction of any L/C Issuer required or permitted under any law, order, or practice that is required or permitted to be applied to any Letter of Credit or this Agreement, including the Law or any order of a jurisdiction where L/C Issuer or the beneficiary is located, the practice stated in the ISP or UCP, as applicable, or in the decisions, opinions, practice statements, or official commentary of the ICC Banking Commission, the Bankers Association for Finance and Trade - International Financial Services Association (BAFT-IFSA), or the Institute of International Banking Law & Practice, whether or not any Letter of Credit chooses such law or practice.
(i)Each L/C Issuer shall act on behalf of the Revolving Credit Lenders with respect to any Letters of Credit issued by it and the documents associated therewith, and each L/C Issuer shall have all of the benefits and immunities (A) provided to Administrative Agent in Article XI with respect to any acts taken or omissions suffered by such L/C Issuer in connection with Letters of
47



Credit issued by it or proposed to be issued by it and Issuer Documents pertaining to such Letters of Credit as fully as if the term “Administrative Agent” as used in Article XI included such L/C Issuer with respect to such acts or omissions, and (B) as additionally provided herein with respect to such L/C Issuer.
(j)Letter of Credit Fees. Borrower shall pay to Administrative Agent for the account of each Revolving Credit Lender in accordance, subject to Section 2.162.17, with its Applicable Revolving Credit Percentage a Letter of Credit fee (the “Letter of Credit Fee”) for each Letter of Credit equal to the Applicable Margin then applicable to Letters of Credit for Letters of Credit times the daily amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit. For purposes of computing the daily amount available to be drawn under any Letter of Credit, the amount of such Letter of Credit shall be determined in accordance with Section 1.06. Letter of Credit Fees shall be (i) due and payable on the first (1st) Business Day after the end of each March, June, September and December, commencing with the first (1st) such date to occur after the issuance of such Letter of Credit, on the Maturity Date for the Revolving Credit Facility on the Letter of Credit Expiration Date and thereafter on demand and (ii) computed on a quarterly basis in arrears. If there is any change in the Applicable Margin applicable to Letters of Credit during any quarter, the daily amount available to be drawn under each Letter of Credit shall be computed and multiplied by the Applicable Margin separately for each period during such quarter that such Applicable Margin was in effect. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, upon the request of the Required Revolving Lenders, while any Event of Default exists, all Letter of Credit Fees shall accrue at the Default Rate.
(k)Fronting Fee and Documentary and Processing Charges Payable to L/C Issuers. Borrower shall pay directly to the applicable L/C Issuer for its own account a fronting fee with respect to each issued and outstanding Letter of Credit, at a rate per annum equal to the percentage separately agreed upon between Borrower and such L/C Issuer, computed on the amount of such Letter of Credit, and payable upon the issuance thereof. Such fronting fee shall be due and payable on the last Business Day of each March, June, September and December in respect of the most recently-ended quarterly period (or portion thereof, in the case of the first (1st) payment), commencing with the first (1st) such date to occur after the issuance of such Letter of Credit, on the Maturity Date for the Revolving Credit Facility, on the Letter of Credit Expiration Date and thereafter on demand. For purposes of computing the daily amount available to be drawn under any Letter of Credit, the amount of such Letter of Credit shall be determined in accordance with Section 1.06. In addition, Borrower shall pay directly to the applicable L/C Issuer for its own account the customary issuance, presentation, amendment and other processing fees, and other standard costs and charges, of such L/C Issuer relating to letters of credit as from time to time in effect. Such customary fees and standard costs and charges are due and payable on demand and are nonrefundable.
(l)Interim Interest. If the L/C Issuer for any Letter of Credit shall make any L/C Disbursement, then, unless Borrower reimburses such L/C Disbursement in full on the date such L/C Disbursement was made, the unpaid amount thereof shall bear interest, for each day from and including the date such L/C Disbursement is made to but excluding the date that Borrower reimburses such L/C Disbursement, at the rate per annum then applicable to Daily SOFR Rate Loans; provided that if Borrower fails to reimburse such L/C Disbursement when due pursuant to clause (f) of this Section 2.03, then Section 2.07(c) shall apply. Interest accrued pursuant to this clause (l) shall be for the account of such L/C Issuer, except that interest accrued on and after the date of payment by any Revolving Credit Lender pursuant to clause (f) of this Section 2.03 to reimburse such L/C Issuer shall be for the account of such Revolving Credit Lender to the extent of such payment.
48



(m)Replacement of any L/C Issuer. Any L/C Issuer may be replaced at any time by written agreement between Borrower, Administrative Agent, the replaced L/C Issuer and the successor L/C Issuer. Administrative Agent shall notify the Revolving Credit Lenders of any such replacement of an L/C Issuer. At the time any such replacement shall become effective, Borrower shall pay all unpaid fees accrued for the account of the replaced L/C Issuer pursuant to Section 2.03(j). From and after the effective date of any such replacement, (i) the successor L/C Issuer shall have all the rights and obligations of an L/C Issuer under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit to be issued by it thereafter and (ii) references herein to the term “L/C Issuer” shall be deemed to include such successor or any previous L/C Issuer, or such successor and all previous L/C Issuer, as the context shall require. After the replacement of an L/C Issuer hereunder, the replaced L/C Issuer shall remain a party hereto and shall continue to have all the rights and obligations of an L/C Issuer under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit issued by it prior to such replacement, but shall not be required to issue additional Letters of Credit.
(n)Cash Collateralization. If any Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, on the Business Day that Borrower receives notice from Administrative Agent or the Required Revolving Lenders (or, if the maturity of the Loans has been accelerated, Revolving Credit Lenders with L/C Obligations representing more than fifty percent (50%) of the total L/C Obligations) demanding the deposit of cash collateral pursuant to this clause (n), Borrower shall immediately deposit into an account established and maintained on the books and records of Administrative Agent (the “Collateral Account”) an amount in cash equal to the Minimum Collateral Amount, provided that the obligation to deposit such Cash Collateral shall become effective immediately, and such deposit shall become immediately due and payable, without demand or other notice of any kind, during the existence of any Event of Default with respect to Borrower described in clause (f) of Section 10.01 (after any notice and cure period contained therein). Such deposit shall be held by Administrative Agent as collateral for the payment and performance of the obligations of Borrower under this Agreement. In addition, and without limiting the foregoing or clause (d) of this Section 2.03, if any L/C Obligations remain outstanding after the expiration date specified in said clause (d), Borrower shall immediately deposit into the Collateral Account an amount in cash equal to the Minimum Collateral Amount; provided that Borrower shall Cash Collateralize in an amount equal to the Minimum Collateral Amount each Letter of Credit that has an expiration date beyond the Maturity Date then in effect for the Revolving Credit Facility at least thirty (30) days prior to the Maturity Date then in effect for the Revolving Credit Facility.
Administrative Agent shall have exclusive dominion and control, including the exclusive right of withdrawal, over the Collateral Account. Other than any interest earned on the investment of such deposits, which investments shall be made at the option and sole discretion of Administrative Agent and at Borrower’s risk and expense, such deposits shall not bear interest. Interest or profits, if any, on such investments shall accumulate in the Collateral Account. Moneys in the Collateral Account shall be applied by Administrative Agent to reimburse each L/C Issuer for L/C Disbursements for which it has not been reimbursed, and, to the extent not so applied, shall be held for the satisfaction of the reimbursement obligations of Borrower for the L/C Obligations at such time or, if the maturity of the Revolving Credit Loans has been accelerated (but subject to the consent of Lenders with L/C Obligations representing more than fifty percent (50%) of the total L/C Obligations), be applied to satisfy other obligations of Borrower under this Agreement. If Borrower is required to provide an amount of Cash Collateral hereunder as a result of the occurrence of an Event of Default, such amount (to the extent not applied as aforesaid) shall be returned to Borrower within three (3) Business Days after all Events of Default have been cured or waived.
49



(o)Conflict with Issuer Documents. In the event of any conflict between the terms hereof and the terms of any Issuer Document, the terms hereof shall control.
(p)Letters of Credit Issued for Subsidiaries. Notwithstanding that a Letter of Credit issued or outstanding hereunder is in support of any obligations of, or is for the account of, a Subsidiary, Borrower shall be obligated to reimburse, indemnify and compensate the applicable L/C Issuer hereunder for any and all drawings under such Letter of Credit as if such Letter of Credit had been issued solely for the account of Borrower. Borrower irrevocably waives any and all defenses that might otherwise be available to it as a guarantor or surety of any or all of the obligations of such Subsidiary in respect of such Letter of Credit. Borrower hereby acknowledges that the issuance of Letters of Credit for the account of Subsidiaries inures to the benefit of Borrower, and that Borrower’s business derives substantial benefits from the businesses of such Subsidiaries.
2.04    Prepayments.
(a)Borrower may, upon notice to Administrative Agent, at any time or from time to time voluntarily prepay Revolving Credit Loans and any of the Term Loans of a particular Facility in whole or in part without premium or penalty; provided that (i) such notice must be received by Administrative Agent in writing no later than 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time (A) two (2) Business Days prior to any date of prepayment of Term SOFR Rate Loans and (B) on the date of prepayment of Base Rate Loans or Daily SOFR Rate Loans; (ii) any prepayment of Term SOFR Rate Loans or Daily SOFR Rate Loans shall be in a minimum principal amount of $5,000,000 or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof; and (iii) any prepayment of Base Rate Loans shall be in a minimum principal amount of $500,000 or a whole multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof or, in each case, if less, the entire principal amount thereof then outstanding. Each such notice shall specify the date and amount of such prepayment and the Type(s) of Loans to be prepaid and, if Term SOFR Rate Loans are to be prepaid, the Interest Period(s) of such Loans. Administrative Agent will promptly notify each Lender of its receipt of each such notice, and of the amount of such Lender’s ratable portion of such prepayment (based on such Lender’s Applicable Percentage in respect of the relevant Facility). If such notice is given by Borrower, Borrower shall make such prepayment and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein; provided, however, that Borrower shall be entitled to make any such payment conditional on the receipt of other financing or the proceeds of other transactions (if such payment is made in connection with a refinancing or other payment in full of the Loans) to the extent specified in such notice. Any prepayment of a Loan shall be accompanied by all accrued interest on the amount prepaid, together with, in the case of any Term SOFR Rate Loans, any additional amounts required pursuant to Section 3.05. Subject to Section 2.162.17, each such prepayment shall be applied to the Loans of the Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Percentages in respect of the relevant Facilities.
(b)If for any reason the Total Revolving Credit Outstandings at any time exceed the Revolving Credit Facility at such time, then Borrower shall, within five (5) Business Days, prepay the Revolving Credit Loans and L/C Borrowings and/or Cash Collateralize the L/C Obligations in an aggregate amount equal to such excess; provided, however, that Borrower shall not be required to Cash Collateralize the L/C Obligations pursuant to this Section 2.04(b) unless after the prepayment in full of the Revolving Credit Loans and the Total Revolving Credit Outstandings exceed the Revolving Credit Facility at such time.
50



2.05    Termination or Reduction of Commitments.
(a)Optional. Borrower may, upon notice to Administrative Agent, terminate the Revolving Credit Facility or the Letter of Credit Sublimit, or from time to time permanently reduce the Revolving Credit Facility or the Letter of Credit Sublimit; provided that (a) any such notice shall be received by Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time three (3) Business Days prior to the date of termination or reduction, (b) any such partial reduction shall be in a minimum aggregate amount of $10,000,000 or any whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof, (c) Borrower shall not terminate or reduce (i) the Revolving Credit Facility if, after giving effect thereto and to any concurrent prepayments hereunder, the Total Revolving Credit Outstandings would exceed the Revolving Credit Facility (as so reduced), or (ii) the Letter of Credit Sublimit if, after giving effect thereto, the Outstanding Amount of L/C Obligations not fully Cash Collateralized hereunder would exceed the Letter of Credit Sublimit.
(b)Mandatory.
    (i)    The aggregate Term A-1 Commitments shall be automatically and permanently reduced to zero (0) on the Closing Date and (ii) if.
    (ii)    The aggregate Term A-2 Commitment shall be automatically and permanently reduced to zero (0) on the First Amendment Effective Date.
(iii)    If, after giving effect to any reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitments, the Letter of Credit Sublimit exceeds the amount of the Revolving Credit Facility, such Sublimit shall be automatically reduced by the amount of such excess.
(c)Application of Commitment Reductions; Payment of Fees. Administrative Agent will promptly notify the Lenders of any termination or reduction of the Letter of Credit Sublimit or the Revolving Credit Commitments under this Section 2.05. Upon any reduction of the Revolving Credit Facility, the Revolving Credit Commitment of each Revolving Credit Lender shall be reduced by such Revolving Credit Lender’s Applicable Revolving Credit Percentage of such reduction amount. All fees in respect of the Revolving Credit Facility accrued until the effective date of any termination of the Revolving Credit Facility shall be paid on the effective date of such termination. Following any such termination or reduction, Administrative Agent shall, using commercially reasonable efforts, replace the existing Schedule 2.01 with an amended and restated schedule that reflects such termination or reduction.
(d)Effect on Fees. Any termination or reduction of any Revolving Credit Commitments under this Section 2.05 shall terminate or proportionately reduce the fees in respect of the Revolving Credit Facility accruing after the effective date of such termination or reduction including those under Section 2.08.
2.06    Repayment of Loans.
(a)Borrower shall repay to the Revolving Credit Lenders on the Maturity Date with respect to the Revolving Credit Facility the aggregate principal amount of all Revolving Credit Loans outstanding on such date.
(b)Borrower shall repay to the Term A-1 Lenders on the Maturity Date with respect to the Term A-1 Facility the aggregate principal amount of all Term A-1 Loans outstanding on such date.
51



(c)Borrower shall repay to the Term A-2 Lenders on the Maturity Date with respect to the Term A-2 Facility the aggregate principal amount of all Term A-2 Loans outstanding on such date.
2.07    Interest.
(a)Revolving Credit Facility. Subject to the provisions of subsection (c) below, (i) each Daily SOFR Rate Loan under the Revolving Credit Facility shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof at a rate per annum equal to Daily Simple SOFR plus the Applicable Margin then applicable to SOFR-based Loans for the Revolving Credit Facility; (ii) each Term SOFR Rate Loan under the Revolving Credit Facility for any Interest Period shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof at a rate per annum equal to Term SOFR for such Interest Period plus the Applicable Margin then applicable to SOFR-based Loans for the Revolving Credit Facility; and (iii) each Base Rate Loan under the Revolving Credit Facility shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin then applicable for Base Rate Loans for the Revolving Credit Facility.
(b)Term FacilityFacilities. Subject to the provisions of subsection (c) below, (i) each Daily SOFR Rate Loan under the Term FacilityFacilities shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof at a rate per annum equal to Daily Simple SOFR plus the Applicable Margin then applicable for the Term FacilityFacilities for SOFR Loans; (ii) each Term SOFR Rate Loan under the Term FacilityFacilities for any Interest Period shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof at a rate per annum equal to Term SOFR for such Interest Period plus the Applicable Margin then applicable for SOFR-based Loans for the Term FacilityFacilities; and (iii) each Base Rate Loan under the Term FacilityFacilities shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin then applicable for Base Rate Loans for the Term FacilityFacilities.
(c)Default Interest.

(ii)If any amount (other than principal of any Loan) payable by Borrower under any Loan Document is not paid when due (without regard to any applicable grace periods), whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise, then such amount shall thereafter bear interest at a fluctuating interest rate per annum at all times equal to the Default Rate to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Laws.
(iii)Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default pursuant to Section 10.01(f) or 10.01(g) and upon the request of Required Lenders if any other Event of Default exists (other than as set forth in clauses (c)(i) and (c)(ii) above), Borrower shall pay interest on the principal amount of all outstanding Obligations hereunder at a fluctuating interest rate per annum at all times equal to the Default Rate to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Laws.
(iv)Accrued and unpaid interest on past due amounts (including interest on past due interest) shall be due and payable upon demand.
52



(d)Payment. Interest on each Loan shall be due and payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date applicable thereto and at such other times as may be specified herein. Interest hereunder shall be due and payable in accordance with the terms hereof before and after judgment, and before and after the commencement of any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law.
2.08    Fees. In addition to certain fees described in Sections 2.03(j) and 2.03(k):
(a)Revolving Credit Facility Fee. Borrower shall pay to Administrative Agent for the account of each Revolving Credit Lender in accordance with its Applicable Revolving Credit Percentage, a facility fee equal to the applicable Revolving Credit Facility Fee Rate set forth in the definition of Applicable Margin times the actual daily amount of the Revolving Credit Facility (or, if the Revolving Credit Facility has terminated, on the actual daily Outstanding Amount of all Revolving Credit Loans and L/C Obligations), regardless of usage, subject to adjustment as provided in Section 2.162.17. The facility fee shall accrue at all times during the Availability Period (and thereafter so long as any Revolving Credit Loans or L/C Obligations remain outstanding), including at any time during which one (1) or more of the conditions in Article VI is not met, and shall be due and payable quarterly in arrears on the first (1st) Business Day after the end of each March, June, September and December, and on the last day of the Availability Period (and, if applicable, thereafter on demand). The facility fee shall be calculated quarterly in arrears, and if there is any change in the Revolving Credit Facility Fee Rate set forth in the definition of Applicable Margin during any quarter, the actual daily amount shall be computed and multiplied by the applicable Revolving Credit Facility Fee Rate separately for each period during such quarter that such Revolving Credit Facility Fee Rate was in effect.
(b)Other Fees.
(i)Borrower shall pay to Arrangers and Administrative Agent for their own respective accounts fees in the amounts and at the times specified in the Fee Letters. Such fees shall be fully earned when paid and shall not be refundable for any reason whatsoever.
(ii)Borrower shall pay to the Lenders such fees as shall have been separately agreed upon in writing in the amounts and at the times so specified. Such fees shall be fully earned when paid and shall not be refundable for any reason whatsoever.
2.09    Computation of Interest and Fees; Retroactive Adjustments of Applicable Margin; Sustainability Adjustments.
(a)All computations of interest for Base Rate Loans (including Base Rate Loans determined by reference to the Term SOFR Rate) shall be made on the basis of a year of three hundred sixty-five (365) or three hundred sixty-six (366) days, as the case may be, and actual days elapsed. All other computations of fees and interest shall be made on the basis of a three hundred sixty (360)-day year and actual days elapsed (which results in more fees or interest, as applicable, being paid than if computed on the basis of a three hundred sixty-five (365)-day year). Interest shall accrue on each Loan for the day on which the Loan is made, and shall not accrue on a Loan, or any portion thereof, for the day on which the Loan or such portion is paid, provided that any Loan that is repaid on the same day on which it is made shall, subject to Section 2.11(a), bear interest for one (1) day. Each determination by Administrative Agent of an interest rate or fee hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.
(b)If, as a result of any restatement of or other adjustment to the financial statements of Borrower or for any other reason, Borrower or the Lenders determine that (i) the Leverage Ratio
53



as calculated by Borrower as of any applicable date was inaccurate and (ii) a proper calculation of the Leverage Ratio would have resulted in higher pricing for such period, Borrower shall immediately and retroactively be obligated to pay to Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Lenders or the applicable L/C Issuer, as the case may be, promptly on demand by Administrative Agent (or, after the occurrence of an actual or deemed entry of an order for relief with respect to Borrower under the Bankruptcy Code of the United States, automatically and without further action by Administrative Agent, any Lender or any L/C Issuer), an amount equal to the excess of the amount of interest and fees that should have been paid for such period over the amount of interest and fees actually paid for such period. This paragraph shall not limit the rights of Administrative Agent, any Lender or any L/C Issuer, as the case may be, under Section 2.03(c)(i) or 2.03(c)(ii) or under Article X. Borrower’s obligations under this paragraph shall survive for the nine (9)-month period immediately following the termination of the Aggregate Commitments and the repayment of all other Obligations hereunder.
(c)Sustainability Adjustments.
(i)Following the date on which Borrower provides a Pricing Certificate in respect of the most recently ended calendar year, (A) the Applicable Margin shall be increased or decreased (or neither increased nor decreased), as applicable, pursuant to the Sustainability Rate Adjustment as set forth in such Pricing Certificate, and (B) the Revolving Credit Facility Fee shall be increased or decreased (or neither increased nor decreased), as applicable, pursuant to the Sustainability Facility Fee Adjustment as set forth in such Pricing Certificate. For purposes of the foregoing, (x) the Sustainability Rate Adjustment and the Sustainability Facility Fee Adjustment shall be applied as of the fifth (5th) Business Day following receipt by Administrative Agent of a Pricing Certificate delivered pursuant to this Section 2.09(c) based upon the calculation of the KPI set forth in such Pricing Certificate and the calculations of the Sustainability Rate Adjustment and the Sustainability Facility Fee Adjustment therein (such day, the “Sustainability Pricing Adjustment Date”) and (y) each change in the Applicable Margin and the Revolving Credit Facility Fee resulting from a Pricing Certificate shall be effective during the period commencing on and including the applicable Sustainability Pricing Adjustment Date and ending on the date immediately preceding the next such Sustainability Pricing Adjustment Date (or, in the case of non-delivery of a Pricing Certificate, the last day such Pricing Certificate could have been delivered pursuant to the terms of this Section 2.09(c)).
(ii)For the avoidance of doubt, only one Pricing Certificate may be delivered in respect of any calendar year. For the avoidance of doubt, any adjustment to the Applicable Margin or Revolving Credit Facility Fee by reason of meeting the KPI in any year shall not be cumulative year-over-year. Each applicable adjustment shall only apply until the date on which the next adjustment is due to take place.
(iii)It is hereby understood and agreed that if no such Pricing Certificate is delivered by Borrower with regard to a particular calendar year within the period of time set forth in clause (vi) below, the Sustainability Rate Adjustment will be positive four basis points (0.04%) and the Sustainability Facility Fee Adjustment will be positive one basis point (0.01%) commencing on the last day such Pricing Certificate could have been delivered pursuant to the terms of this Section 2.09(c) and continuing until Borrower delivers a Pricing Certificate to Administrative Agent for the applicable calendar year.
54



(iv)If (A)(x) any of Borrower or Required Lenders becomes aware of any material inaccuracy in the Sustainability Rate Adjustment, the Sustainability Facility Fee Adjustment or the KPI as reported in a Pricing Certificate (any such material inaccuracy, a “Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy”) and the Required Lenders or Borrower, as applicable, delivers, not later than ten (10) Business Days after obtaining knowledge thereof, a written notice to Administrative Agent describing such Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy in reasonable detail (which description shall be shared with each Lender, L/C Issuer and Borrower), or (y) Borrower and the Required Lenders agree that there was a Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy at the time of delivery of the relevant Pricing Certificate, (B) the Sustainability Assurance Provider confirms in writing that there was in fact a Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy and (C) a proper calculation of the Sustainability Rate Adjustment, the Sustainability Facility Fee Adjustment or the KPI would have resulted in an increase in the Applicable Margin or Revolving Credit Facility Fee for any period, Borrower shall be obligated to pay to Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Lenders and L/C Issuers promptly on demand by Administrative Agent (or, after the occurrence of an actual or deemed entry of an order for relief with respect to any Borrower under the Bankruptcy Code (or any comparable event under non-U.S. Debtor Relief Laws), automatically and without further action by Administrative Agent or any Lender), but in any event within ten (10) Business Days after Borrower has received written notice of (in the case of clause (iv)(A)(x) above), or has agreed in writing that there was (in the case of clause (iv)(A)(y) above), a Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy, an amount equal to the excess of (1) the amount of interest and fees that should have been paid for such period over (2) the amount of interest and fees actually paid for such period (the “True-Up Amount”). If Borrower becomes aware of any Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy and, in connection therewith, if a proper calculation of the Sustainability Rate Adjustment, the Sustainability Facility Fee Adjustment or the KPI would have resulted in a decrease in the Applicable Margin or Revolving Credit Facility Fee for any period, then, upon receipt by Administrative Agent of notice from Borrower of such Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy (which notice shall include corrections to the calculations of the Sustainability Rate Adjustment the Sustainability Facility Fee Adjustment or the KPI, as applicable), commencing on the Business Day following receipt by Administrative Agent of such notice, the Applicable Margin for the Advances , and the Applicable Margin for purpose of calculating interest on the Revolving Credit Facility Fee shall be adjusted to reflect the corrected calculations of the Sustainability Rate Adjustment, the Sustainability Facility Fee Adjustment or the KPI, as applicable.
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, it is understood and agreed that any Pricing Certificate Inaccuracy shall not constitute a Default or Event of Default. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, unless such amounts shall be due upon the occurrence of an actual or deemed entry of an order for relief with respect to Borrower under the Bankruptcy Code (or any comparable event under non-U.S. Debtor Relief Laws), (1) any additional amounts required to be paid pursuant to the immediately preceding paragraph shall not be due and payable until the earlier to occur of written demand for such payment by Administrative Agent in accordance with such paragraph, (2) any nonpayment of such additional amounts prior to such demand for payment by Administrative Agent shall not constitute a Default or Event of Default (whether retroactively or otherwise), and (3) none of such additional amounts shall be deemed overdue prior to such demand or shall accrue interest at the Default Rate prior to such demand. In the event Borrower fails to comply with the terms of this Section 2.09(c), the Lenders’ sole recourse with respect to such non-compliance shall be limited to the True-Up Amount.
55



(v)Each party hereto hereby agrees that neither the Sustainability Structuring Agent nor Administrative Agent shall have any responsibility for (or liability in respect of) reviewing, auditing or otherwise evaluating any calculation by Borrower of any Sustainability Rate Adjustment or Sustainability Facility Fee Adjustment (or any of the data or computations that are part of or related to any such calculation) set forth in any Pricing Certificate (and Administrative Agent may rely conclusively on any such certificate, without further inquiry).
(vi)As soon as available and in any event within one hundred fifty (150) days following the end of each fiscal year of Parent (commencing with the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022), Borrower shall deliver to Administrative Agent and the Lenders a Pricing Certificate for the most recently ended calendar year; provided, that, for any calendar year Borrower may elect not to deliver a Pricing Certificate, and such election shall not constitute a Default or Event of Default (but such failure to so deliver a Pricing Certificate by the end of such 150-day period shall result in the Sustainability Rate Adjustment and the Sustainability Facility Fee Adjustment being applied as set forth in clause (iii) above.
2.10    Evidence of Debt.
(a)The Credit Extensions made by each Lender shall be evidenced by one (1) or more accounts or records maintained by such Lender and by Administrative Agent in the ordinary course of business. Administrative Agent shall maintain the Register in accordance with Section 12.06(c). The accounts or records maintained by Administrative Agent and each Lender shall be conclusive absent manifest error of the amount of the Credit Extensions made by the Lenders to Borrower and the interest and payments thereon. Any failure to so record or any error in doing so shall not, however, limit or otherwise affect the obligation of Borrower hereunder to pay any amount owing with respect to the Obligations. In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by any Lender and the accounts and records of Administrative Agent in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of Administrative Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error. Upon the written request of any Lender made through Administrative Agent, Borrower shall execute and deliver to such Lender (through Administrative Agent) a Note, which shall evidence such Lender’s Loans in addition to such accounts or records. Each Lender may attach schedules to its Note and endorse thereon the date, Type (if applicable), amount and maturity of its Loans and payments with respect thereto.
(b)In addition to the accounts and records referred to in subsection (a) above, each Lender and Administrative Agent shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice accounts or records evidencing the purchases and sales by such Lender of participations in Letters of Credit. In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by Administrative Agent and the accounts and records of any Lender in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of Administrative Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error.
2.11    Payments Generally; Administrative Agent’s Clawback.
(a)General. All payments to be made by Borrower shall be made free and clear of and without condition or deduction for any counterclaim, defense, recoupment or setoff. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments by Borrower hereunder shall be made to Administrative Agent, for the account of the respective Lenders to which such payment is owed, at Administrative Agent’s Office in Dollars and in immediately available funds not later than
56



2:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the date specified herein. Administrative Agent will promptly distribute to each Lender its Applicable Percentage in respect of the relevant Facility (or other applicable share as provided herein) of such payment in like funds as received by wire transfer to such Lender’s Lending Office. All payments received by Administrative Agent after 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time shall be deemed received on the next succeeding Business Day and any applicable interest or fee shall continue to accrue. If any payment to be made by Borrower shall come due on a day other than a Business Day, payment shall be made on the next following Business Day, and such extension of time shall be reflected in computing interest or fees, as the case may be.
(b)Clawback.
(i)Funding by Lenders; Presumption by Administrative Agent. Unless Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed date of any Borrowing of Loans that such Lender will not make available to Administrative Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing, Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date in accordance with Section 2.02 and may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to Borrower a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing available to Administrative Agent, then the applicable Lender and Borrower severally agree to pay to Administrative Agent forthwith on demand (without duplication) such corresponding amount in immediately available funds with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to Administrative Agent, at (A) in the case of a payment to be made by such Lender, the greater of the Federal Funds Rate and a rate determined by Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by Administrative Agent in connection with the foregoing, and (B) in the case of a payment to be made by Borrower, the interest rate applicable to such Loans. If Borrower and such Lender shall pay such interest to Administrative Agent for the same or an overlapping period, Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to Borrower the amount of such interest paid by Borrower for such period. If such Lender pays its share of the applicable Borrowing to Administrative Agent, then the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing. Any payment by Borrower shall be without prejudice to any claim Borrower may have against a Lender that shall have failed to make such payment to Administrative Agent.
(ii)Payments by Borrower; Presumptions by Administrative Agent. Unless Administrative Agent shall have received notice from Borrower prior to the time at which any payment is due to Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders or any L/C Issuer hereunder that Borrower will not make such payment, Administrative Agent may assume that Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the Lenders or the applicable L/C Issuer, as the case may be, the amount due. With respect to any payment that Administrative Agent makes for the account of the Lenders or any L/C Issuer hereunder as to which Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that any of the following applies (such payment referred to as the “Rescindable Amount”): (1) Borrower has not in fact made such payment; (2) Administrative Agent has made a payment in excess of the amount so paid by Borrower (whether or not then owed); or (3) Administrative Agent has for any reason otherwise erroneously made such payment; then each of the Lenders or the applicable L/C Issuer, as
57



the case may be, severally agrees to repay to Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the Rescindable Amount so distributed to such Lender or such L/C Issuer, in immediately available funds with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to Administrative Agent, at the greater of the Federal Funds Rate and a rate determined by Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation.
A notice of Administrative Agent to any Lender or Borrower with respect to any amount owing under this subsection (b) shall be conclusive, absent manifest error.
(c)Failure to Satisfy Conditions Precedent. If any Lender makes available to Administrative Agent funds for any Loan to be made by such Lender as provided in the foregoing provisions of this Article II, and such funds are not made available to Borrower by Administrative Agent because the conditions to the applicable Credit Extension set forth in Article VI are not satisfied or waived in accordance with the terms hereof, Administrative Agent shall return such funds (in like funds as received from such Lender) to such Lender, without interest.
(d)Obligations of Lenders Several. The obligations of the Lenders hereunder to make Revolving Credit Loans and Term Loans, to fund participations in Letters of Credit and to make payments pursuant to Section 12.04(c) are several and not joint. The failure of any Lender to make any Loan, to fund any such participation or to make any payment under Section 12.04(c) on any date required hereunder shall not relieve any other Lender of its corresponding obligation to do so on such date, and no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to so make its Loan, to purchase its participation or to make its payment under Section 12.04(c).
(e)Funding Source. Nothing herein shall be deemed to obligate any Lender to obtain the funds for any Loan in any particular place or manner or to constitute a representation by any Lender that it has obtained or will obtain the funds for any Loan in any particular place or manner.
2.12    Sharing of Payments by Lenders. If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of setoff or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of (a) Obligations in respect of any of the Facilities due and payable to such Lender hereunder and under the other Loan Documents at such time in excess of its ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Obligations due and payable to such Lender at such time to (ii) the aggregate amount of the Obligations in respect of the Facilities due and payable to all Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents at such time) of payments on account of the Obligations in respect of the Facilities due and payable to all Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents at such time obtained by all the Lenders at such time or (b) Obligations in respect of any of the Facilities owing (but not due and payable) to such Lender hereunder and under the other Loan Documents at such time in excess of its ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Obligations owing (but not due and payable) to such Lender at such time to (ii) the aggregate amount of the Obligations in respect of the Facilities owing (but not due and payable) to all Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents at such time) of payment on account of the Obligations in respect of the Facilities owing (but not due and payable) to all Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents at such time obtained by all of the Lenders at such time, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall (y) notify Administrative Agent of such fact, and (z) purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Loans and subparticipations in L/C Obligations, or make such other adjustments as shall be equitable, so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders ratably in accordance with the aggregate amount of Obligations in respect of the Facilities then due and payable to the Lenders or owing (but not due and payable) to the Lenders, as the case may be, provided that:
58




(i)if any such participations or subparticipations are purchased and all or any portion of the payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations or subparticipations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest; and
(ii)the provisions of this Section 2.12 shall not be construed to apply to (x) any payment made by or on behalf of Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement (including the application of funds arising from the existence of a Defaulting Lender), (y) the application of Cash Collateral provided for in Section 2.152.16, or (z) any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans or subparticipations in L/C Obligations to any assignee or participant, other than an assignment to Borrower or any Affiliate thereof (as to which the provisions of this Section 2.12 shall apply).
Each Loan Party consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable Law, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against such Loan Party rights of setoff and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of such Loan Party in the amount of such participation.
