(e) The applicable Agent shall promptly notify each bidding Lender by telecopy whether or not its Competitive Bid has been accepted (and, if so, the amount and Competitive Bid Rate so accepted), and each successful bidder will thereupon become bound, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, to make the Competitive Loan in respect of which its Competitive Bid has been accepted.

[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]
 
 

 
35
 
other conditions applicable to such Loans hereunder.  Any request for Competitive Loans in an Alternative Currency shall be subject to the following conditions:
 
(i)  
after giving effect to any Competitive Borrowing in an Alternative Currency, the aggregate Dollar Amount of all outstanding Competitive Loans denominated in Alternative Currencies (other than Committed Alternative Currencies) shall not exceed US$250,000,000, and
 
(ii)  
if there shall occur at or prior to 10:00 a.m., Local Time, on the date of any Competitive Borrowing to be denominated in an Alternative Currency any change in national or international financial, political or economic conditions or currency exchange rates or exchange controls which would, in the reasonable opinion of any Lender that shall have offered to make any Competitive Loan in connection with such Borrowing, make it impracticable for such Lender’s Loan to be denominated in such Alternative Currency, then such Lender may by notice to the applicable Borrower and the applicable Agent withdraw its offer to make such Loan.
 
Any Competitive Loan which is to be made in an Alternative Currency in accordance with this subsection (g) shall be advanced in the Equivalent Amount of the Dollar Amount thereof and shall be repaid or prepaid in such Alternative Currency in the amount borrowed.  Interest payable on any Loan denominated in an Alternative Currency shall be paid in such Alternative Currency.
 
For purposes of determining whether the aggregate principal amount of Loans outstanding hereunder exceeds any applicable limitation expressed in U.S. Dollars, each Competitive Loan denominated in an Alternative Currency shall be deemed to be in a principal amount equal to the Dollar Amount thereof.  The Dollar Amount of any Competitive Loan with an Interest Period exceeding three months in duration shall be adjusted on each date that would have been the last day of an Interest Period for such Loan if such Loan had successive Interest Periods of three months duration.  Each such adjustment shall be made by the Lender holding such Loan by determining the amount in U.S. Dollars that would be required in order to result in an Equivalent Amount in the applicable Alternative Currency equal to the principal amount of the applicable Loan outstanding on the date of the adjustment, and the amount in U.S. Dollars so determined shall be the Dollar Amount of such Loan unless and until another adjustment is required hereby.  Each Lender that makes a Competitive Loan denominated in an Alternative Currency agrees to determine any such adjustments if and when required to be made pursuant to this paragraph and to notify the applicable Borrower and the applicable Agent of each such adjustment promptly upon making such determination.

[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]
 
 

 
36
 
Class plus the aggregate principal amount of outstanding Competitive Loans of such Class exceeding the total Commitments of such Class; provided that (A) no Swingline Loans will be made on the last day of any calendar quarter and (B) if any Swingline Loans of either Class are outstanding on the Business Day immediately preceding the last day of any calendar quarter, the Lenders will be required, if requested by a Swingline Lender, to make ABR Revolving Loans of such Class on such day in an equivalent amount, the proceeds of which will be applied to repay such Swingline Loans.  Within the foregoing limits and subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, a Borrower may borrow, prepay and reborrow Swingline Loans.
 
(b) To request a Swingline Loan, the applicable Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent of such request by telephone (confirmed by telecopy), not later than 12:00 noon, Local Time, on the day of a proposed Swingline Loan.  Each such notice shall be irrevocable and shall specify the requested date (which shall be a Business Day) and amount of the requested Swingline Loan and whether such Swingline Loan is to be a Tranche A Swingline Loan or a Tranche B Swingline Loan.  The Administrative Agent will promptly advise the Swingline Lenders of any such notice received from such Borrower.  The Swingline Lenders shall make each Swingline Loan available to the applicable Borrower by means of a credit to the general deposit account of such Borrower with the Administrative Agent (or, in the case of a Swingline Loan made to finance the reimbursement of an LC Disbursement as provided in Section 2.06(e), by remittance to the applicable Issuing Bank) by 3:00 p.m., Local Time, on the requested date of such Swingline Loan.  Each Swingline Lender shall be required to make available 50% of each Swingline Loan requested by such Borrower.  No Swingline Lender shall be required to make available any Swingline Loan if such Loan would cause the aggregate amount of outstanding Swingline Loans of such Swingline Lender to exceed US$75,000,000.
 
(c) A Swingline Lender may by written notice given to the Administrative Agent not later than 10:00 a.m., Local Time, on any Business Day (i) require the Tranche A Lenders to acquire participations on such Business Day in all or a portion of such Swingline Lender’s Tranche A Swingline Loans outstanding or (ii) require the Tranche B Lenders to acquire participations on such Business Day in all or a portion of such Swingline Lender’s Tranche B Swingline Loans outstanding.  Such notice shall specify the aggregate amount of Swingline Loans in which the Tranche A Lenders or Tranche B Lenders will participate.  Promptly upon receipt of such notice, the Administrative Agent will give notice thereof to each Tranche A Lender or Tranche B Lender, as the case maybe, specifying in such notice such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of such Swingline Loan or Loans.  Each Lender hereby absolutely and unconditionally agrees, upon receipt of notice as provided above, to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the applicable Swingline Lender, such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of such Swingline Loan or Loans.  Each Tranche A Lender and Tranche B Lender acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to acquire participations in Swingline Loans pursuant to this paragraph is absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including the occurrence and continuance of a Default or reduction or termination of the Tranche A Commitments or Tranche B Commitments, and that each such payment shall be made without any offset, abatement, withholding or reduction whatsoever.  Each Tranche A Lender and Tranche B Lender shall comply with its obligations under this

paragraph by wire transfer of immediately available funds, in the same manner as provided in Section 2.07 with respect to Loans made by such Lender (and Section 2.07 shall apply, mutatis mutandis, to the payment obligations of the Tranche A Lenders and Tranche B Lenders), and the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to the applicable Swingline Lender the amounts so received by it from the Tranche A Lenders or Tranche B Lenders, as the case may be.  The Administrative Agent shall notify the Company of any participations in any Swingline Loan acquired pursuant to this paragraph, and thereafter payments in respect of such Swingline Loan shall be made to the Administrative Agent and not to the applicable Swingline Lender.  Any amounts received by a Swingline Lender from a Borrower (or other party on behalf of a Borrower) in respect of a Swingline Loan after receipt by such Swingline Lender of the proceeds of a sale of participations therein shall be promptly remitted to the Administrative Agent; any such amounts received by the Administrative Agent shall be promptly remitted by the Administrative Agent to the Lenders of the applicable Class that shall have made their payments pursuant to this paragraph and to such Swingline Lender, as their interests may appear; provided that any such payment so remitted shall be repaid to such Swingline Lender or to the Administrative Agent, as applicable, if and to the extent such payment is required to be refunded to such Borrower for any reason.  The purchase of participations in a Swingline Loan pursuant to this paragraph shall not relieve any Borrower of any default in the payment thereof.
 
SECTION 2.06. Letters of Credit.  (a)  General.  Upon the satisfaction (or waiver in accordance with Section 9.02) of the conditions specified in Section 4.01, on the Effective Date, each Existing Letter of Credit will automatically, without any action on the part of any Person, be deemed to be a Tranche A Letter of Credit issued hereunder for the account of the applicable Borrower that is the account party for such Existing Letter of Credit for all purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.  In addition, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, any Borrower may request the issuance of Letters of Credit for its own account (for its own behalf or on behalf of any Subsidiary), denominated in U.S. Dollars and in a form reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and the applicable Issuing Bank, at any time and from time to time during the Availability Period.  In the event of any inconsistency between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the terms and conditions of any form of letter of credit application or other agreement submitted by such Borrower to, or entered into by such Borrower with, any Issuing Bank relating to any Letter of Credit, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall control, and any obligations or liabilities imposed on such Borrower under any such letter of credit application (including by reason of rights or remedies granted to an Issuing Bank) shall be disregarded (it being understood that this Agreement sets forth all obligations and liabilities of such Borrower with respect to Letters of Credit).
 
(b) Notice of Issuance, Amendment, Renewal, Extension; Certain Conditions.  To request the issuance of a Letter of Credit (or the amendment, renewal or extension of an outstanding Letter of Credit), the applicable Borrower shall hand deliver or telecopy (or transmit by electronic communication, if arrangements for doing so have been approved by the applicable Issuing Bank) to the relevant Issuing Bank selected by such Borrower to issue such Letter of Credit and the Administrative Agent (reasonably in

(c) Expiration Date.  Except as set forth in Section 2.06(l), each Letter of Credit shall expire at or prior to the close of business on the earlier of (i) the date one year after the date of the issuance of such Letter of Credit (or, in the case of any renewal or extension thereof, one year after such renewal or extension) and (ii) the date that is five Business Days prior to the Maturity Date; provided that any Letter of Credit may provide for the automatic renewal or extension thereof at the scheduled expiry thereof if (A) such Letter of Credit also provides that the Issuing Bank in respect thereof may, by notice to the beneficiary, elect not to so renew or extend such Letter of Credit and (B) any such renewal or extension shall be for a period that expires at a date that complies (except as set forth in Section 2.06(l)) with clauses (i) and (ii) above.
 
(d) Participations.  By the issuance of a Letter of Credit of either Class (or an amendment to a Letter of Credit of either Class increasing the amount thereof) and without any further action on the part of the applicable Issuing Bank or the Lenders, the Issuing Bank in respect of such Letter of Credit hereby grants to each Lender of such Class, and each such Lender hereby acquires from such Issuing Bank, a participation in such Letter of Credit (including each Existing Letter of Credit) equal to such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of the aggregate amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit.  In consideration and in furtherance of the foregoing, each Lender of a Class hereby absolutely and unconditionally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the applicable Issuing Bank, such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of each LC Disbursement of such Class made by such Issuing Bank and not reimbursed by the applicable Borrower on the date due as provided in paragraph (e) of this Section, or of any reimbursement payment required to be refunded to such Borrower for any reason.  Each Lender acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to acquire participations

pursuant to this paragraph in respect of Letters of Credit of the applicable Class is absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including any amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit or the occurrence and continuance of a Default or reduction or termination of the Commitments of either Class, and that each such payment shall be made without any offset, abatement, withholding or reduction whatsoever; provided that the foregoing shall not be construed to excuse the applicable Issuing Bank from liability to the Lenders for damages caused by such Issuing Bank’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.
 
(e) Reimbursement.  If an Issuing Bank shall make any LC Disbursement in respect of a Letter of Credit, the applicable Borrower shall reimburse such LC Disbursement by paying to the Administrative Agent an amount equal to such LC Disbursement not later than 12:00 noon, New York City time, on the date that such LC Disbursement is made, if such Borrower shall have received notice of such LC Disbursement prior to 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on such date, or, if such notice has not been received by such Borrower prior to such time on such date, then not later than 12:00 noon, New York City time, on (i) the Business Day that such Borrower receives such notice, if such notice is received prior to 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on the day of receipt, or (ii) the Business Day immediately following the day that such Borrower receives such notice, if such notice is not received prior to such time on the day of receipt; provided that such Borrower may, subject to the conditions to borrowing set forth herein, request in accordance with Section 2.03 or 2.05 that such payment be financed with an ABR Revolving Borrowing (if such LC Disbursement is not less than US$10,000,000) or Swingline Loan (if such LC Disbursement is not less than US$500,000) in an equivalent amount and, to the extent so financed, such Borrower’s obligation to make such payment shall be discharged and replaced by the resulting ABR Revolving Borrowing or Swingline Loan, as applicable.  If such Borrower fails to make such payment when due, the Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender of the applicable Class of the applicable LC Disbursement, the payment then due from such Borrower in respect thereof and such Lender’s Applicable Percentage thereof.  Promptly following receipt of such notice, each Lender of the applicable Class shall pay to the Administrative Agent its Applicable Percentage of the payment then due from such Borrower, in the same manner as provided in Section 2.07 with respect to Loans made by such Lender (and Section 2.07 shall apply, mutatis mutandis, to the payment obligations of the Lenders of the applicable Class), and the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to the applicable Issuing Bank the amounts so received by it from the Lenders of the applicable Class.  Promptly following receipt by the Administrative Agent of any payment from such Borrower pursuant to this paragraph, the Administrative Agent shall distribute such payment to the applicable Issuing Bank or, to the extent that Lenders of the applicable Class have made payments pursuant to this paragraph to reimburse such Issuing Bank, then to such Lenders and such Issuing Bank as their interests may appear.  Any payment made by a Lender pursuant to this paragraph to reimburse the applicable Issuing Bank for any LC Disbursement (other than the funding of ABR Revolving Loans or a Swingline Loan as contemplated above) shall not constitute a Loan and shall not relieve such Borrower of its obligation to reimburse such LC Disbursement.

(f) Obligations Absolute.  The applicable Borrower’s obligation to reimburse LC Disbursements as provided in paragraph (e) of this Section 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 any Letter of Credit or this Agreement, or any term or provision therein, (ii) any draft or other document presented under a Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent or invalid in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect, (iii) payment by an Issuing Bank under a Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or other document that does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit, or (iv) any other event or circumstance whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, that might, but for the provisions of this Section, constitute a legal or equitable discharge of, or provide a right of setoff against, such Borrower’s obligations hereunder.  Neither the Administrative Agent, the Lenders nor any Issuing Bank, nor 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 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 or any consequence arising from causes beyond the control of any Issuing Bank; provided that the foregoing shall not be construed to excuse an Issuing Bank from liability to such Borrower to the extent of any direct or actual damages (as opposed to consequential damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by such Borrower to the extent permitted by applicable law) suffered by such Borrower that are caused by such Issuing Bank’s failure to exercise care when determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit issued by it comply with the terms thereof.  The parties hereto expressly agree that, in the absence of gross negligence or wilful misconduct on the part of an Issuing Bank (as finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction), such Issuing Bank shall be deemed to have exercised care in each such determination.  In furtherance of the foregoing and without limiting the generality thereof, the parties agree that, with respect to documents presented which appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of a Letter of Credit, the applicable Issuing Bank may, in its sole discretion, either accept and make payment upon such documents without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, or refuse to accept and make payment upon such documents if such documents are not in strict compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit.
 
(g) Disbursement Procedures.  An Issuing Bank shall, promptly following its receipt thereof, examine all documents purporting to represent a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit issued by it.  Such Issuing Bank shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent and the applicable Borrower by telephone (confirmed by telecopy) of such demand for payment and whether such Issuing Bank has made or will make an LC Disbursement thereunder; provided that any failure to give or delay in giving such notice shall not relieve such Borrower of its obligation to reimburse such Issuing Bank and the Lenders with respect to any such LC Disbursement.

(h) Interim Interest.  If an Issuing Bank shall make any LC Disbursement, then, unless the applicable Borrower shall reimburse such LC Disbursement in full on the date such LC Disbursement is made, the unpaid amount thereof shall bear interest, for each day from and including the date such LC Disbursement is made to but excluding the date that such Borrower reimburses such LC Disbursement, at the rate per annum then applicable to ABR Revolving Loans; provided that if such Borrower fails to reimburse such LC Disbursement when due pursuant to paragraph (e) of this Section, then Section 2.13(e) shall apply.  Interest accrued pursuant to this paragraph shall be for the account of the applicable Issuing Bank, except that interest accrued on and after the date of payment by any Lender pursuant to paragraph (e) of this Section to reimburse such Issuing Bank shall be for the account of such Lender to the extent of such payment.
 
(i) Replacement of Issuing Bank.  Any Issuing Bank may be replaced at any time by written agreement among the Company, the Administrative Agent, the replaced Issuing Bank and the successor Issuing Bank.  The Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders of any such replacement of an Issuing Bank.  At the time any such replacement shall become effective, the applicable Borrower or Borrowers shall pay all unpaid fees accrued for the account of the replaced Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 2.12(b).  From and after the effective date of any such replacement, (i) the successor Issuing Bank shall have all the rights and obligations of an Issuing Bank under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit to be issued thereafter and (ii) references herein to the term “Issuing Bank” shall be deemed to refer to such successor or to any previous Issuing Bank, or to such successor and all previous Issuing Banks, as the context shall require.  After the replacement of an Issuing Bank hereunder, the replaced Issuing Bank shall remain a party hereto and shall continue to have all the rights and obligations of an Issuing Bank 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.
 
(j) Addition of Issuing Bank.  The Company may, at any time and from time to time with the consent of the Administrative Agent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld) and such Lender, designate one or more additional Lenders to act as an issuing bank under the terms of this Agreement.  Any Lender designated as an Issuing Bank pursuant to this paragraph (j) shall be deemed to be an “Issuing Bank” for the purposes of this Agreement (in addition to being a Lender) with respect to Letters of Credit issued by such Lender.
 
(k) Cash Collateralization.  If any Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, on the Business Day that the Company receives notice from the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders (or, if the maturity of the Loans has been accelerated, Lenders with LC Exposure representing greater than 50% of the total LC Exposure) demanding the deposit of cash collateral pursuant to this paragraph, each Borrower shall deposit in an account with the Administrative Agent, in the name of the Administrative Agent and for the benefit of the Lenders, an amount in cash equal to the LC Exposure as of such date in respect of Letters of Credit issued for the account of such Borrower plus any accrued and unpaid interest thereon; 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, upon
 
 
 
 
[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]

the occurrence of any Event of Default with respect to the Company or such Borrower described in clause (i) or (j) of Section 7.01.  Such deposit shall be held by the Administrative Agent as collateral for the payment and performance of the obligations of the Company and such Borrower under the Loan Documents.  The Administrative Agent shall have exclusive dominion and control, including the exclusive right of withdrawal, over such account.  Other than any interest earned on the investment of such deposits, which investments shall be made at the option and sole discretion of the Administrative Agent and at the applicable Borrower’s risk and expense, such deposits shall not bear interest.  Interest or profits, if any, on such investments shall accumulate in such account.  Moneys received from a Borrower and deposited in such account shall be applied by the Administrative Agent to reimburse any Issuing Bank for LC Disbursements in respect of Letters of Credit issued for such Borrower’s account and for which such Issuing Bank has not been reimbursed and, to the extent not so applied, shall be held for the satisfaction of the reimbursement obligations of the such Borrower for such LC Exposure at such time or, if the maturity of the Loans has been accelerated (but subject to the consent of Lenders with LC Exposure representing greater than 50% of the total LC Exposure), be applied to satisfy other obligations of such Borrower under this Agreement.  If a Borrower is required to provide an amount of cash collateral hereunder as a result of the occurrence of an Event of Default, (i) such amount (to the extent not applied as aforesaid) shall be returned to such Borrower within three Business Days after all Events of Default have been cured or waived and (ii) from time to time there shall be returned to such Borrower an amount equal to the excess, if any, of the amount of cash collateral then held hereunder over the amount of LC Exposure and accrued and unpaid interest thereon.
 
(l) Any Borrower may request that an Issuing Bank allow, and an Issuing Bank may (in its sole discretion) agree to allow, one or more Letters of Credit issued by it to expire later than permitted by Section 2.06(c).  Any such Letter of Credit is referred to herein as an “Extended Letter of Credit”.  The following provisions shall apply to any Extended Letter of Credit, notwithstanding any contrary provision set forth in this Agreement.
 
(i)  
The participations of each Lender in each Extended Letter of Credit shall terminate at the close of business on the date that is five Business Days prior to the Maturity Date, with the effect that the Lenders shall not have any obligations to acquire participations in any LC Disbursement made thereafter(other than in respect of demands for drawings submitted prior to such termination).
 
(ii)  
On a date to be determined by the applicable Issuing Bank (in its sole discretion), the applicable Borrower shall deposit with such Issuing Bank an amount in cash equal to the LC Exposure as of such date attributable to the Extended Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank for the account of such Borrower.  Each such deposit shall be held by the applicable Issuing Bank as collateral for the obligations of such Borrower in respect of such Extended Letters of Credit.  The applicable Issuing Bank shall have exclusive dominion and control, including the exclusive right of withdrawal, over such account.  Other than any interest earned on the investment of such deposits, which
 
 
 
 
[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]
 
 

 
43
 
investments shall be made at the option and sole discretion of the applicable Issuing Bank and at applicable Borrower’s risk and expense, such deposits shall not bear interest.  Interest or profits, if any, on such investments shall accumulate in such account.  Moneys in such account shall be applied by the applicable Issuing Bank to reimburse LC Disbursements in respect of such Extended Letters of Credit issued for the account of the applicable Borrower for which such Issuing Bank has not been reimbursed and, to the extent not so applied, shall be held for the satisfaction of the reimbursement obligations of such Borrower for the LC Exposure at such time.  If any Extended Letter of Credit expires or is terminated, then within three Business Days thereafter the relevant Issuing Bank shall return to such Borrower cash collateral then held attributable to such Extended Letter of Credit (after deducting therefrom any amounts owed to such Issuing Bank by such Borrower that are then due).
 
(iii)  
After the close of business on the date that is five Business Days prior to the Maturity Date, the fees that would have accrued pursuant to clause (i) of Section 2.12(b) (if the participations of the Lenders in the Extended Letters of Credit had not terminated) shall continue to accrue on the LC Exposure in respect of each Extended Letter of Credit and shall be payable to the applicable Issuing Bank for its own account.
 
SECTION 2.07. Funding of Borrowings.  (a)  Each Lender shall make each Loan to be made by it hereunder on the proposed date thereof (i) in the case of Loans denominated in U.S. Dollars or Revolving Loans denominated in a Committed Alternative Currency, by wire transfer of immediately available funds in the applicable currency by 12:00 noon, Local Time, to the account of the applicable Agent most recently designated by it for such purpose by notice to the Lenders or (ii) subject to the provisions of Section 2.04, if such Borrowing is a Borrowing of Competitive Loans to be made in an Alternative Currency, by making available the Equivalent Amount of such Alternative Currency (in such funds as may then be customary for the settlement of international transactions in the Alternative Currency) by 12:00 noon, local time at the place of payment, to the account of the applicable Agent at such place as shall have been notified by such Agent to the Lenders participating in such Borrowing by not less than five Business Days’ notice; provided that Swingline Loans shall be made as provided in Section 2.05.  The applicable Agent will make such Loans available to the applicable Borrower by promptly crediting the amounts so received, in like funds, to an account of the such Borrower maintained with such Agent in New York City or London, as applicable, and designated by such Borrower in the applicable Borrowing Request or Competitive Bid Request (or, in the case of a Borrowing made in an Alternative Currency, to an account mutually agreed between such Borrower and the applicable Agent for funding such Borrowing); provided that (i) ABR Revolving Loans made to finance the reimbursement of an LC Disbursement as provided in Section 2.06(e) shall be remitted by the Administrative Agent to the applicable Issuing Bank and (ii) ABR Revolving Loans made to refinance outstanding Swingline Loans as provided in Section 2.02(d) shall be remitted by the Administrative Agent to the applicable Swingline Lender.

(b) Unless an Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available to such Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing, such Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date in accordance with paragraph (a) of this Section and may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the applicable Borrower a corresponding amount.  In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing available to the applicable Agent, then the applicable Lender and the applicable Borrower severally agree to pay to such Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to such Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to such Agent, at (i) in the case of such Lender, the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the applicable Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation or (ii) in the case of such Borrower, the interest rate applicable to the Loans included in such Borrowing.  If such Lender pays such amount to the applicable Agent, then such amount shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing.
 
SECTION 2.08. Interest Elections.  (a)  Each Revolving Borrowing initially shall be of the Type specified in the applicable Borrowing Request and, in the case of a LIBOR Revolving Borrowing or a EURIBOR Revolving Borrowing, shall have an initial Interest Period as specified in such Borrowing Request.  Thereafter, the applicable Borrower may elect to convert such Borrowing to a different Type or to continue such Borrowing and, in the case of a LIBOR Revolving Borrowing or a EURIBOR Revolving Borrowing, may elect Interest Periods therefor, all as provided in this Section.  The applicable Borrower may elect different options with respect to different portions of the affected Borrowing, in which case each such portion shall be allocated ratably among the Lenders holding the Loans comprising such Borrowing, and the Loans comprising each such portion shall be considered a separate Borrowing.  This Section shall not apply to Competitive Borrowings or Swingline Borrowings, which may not be converted or continued.
 
(b) To make an election pursuant to this Section, the applicable Borrower shall notify the applicable Agent of such election by telephone by the time that a Borrowing Request would be required under Section 2.03 if such Borrower were requesting a Revolving Borrowing in the same currency and of the Type resulting from such election to be made on the effective date of such election.  Each such telephonic Interest Election Request shall be irrevocable and shall be confirmed promptly by hand delivery or telecopy to the applicable Agent of a written Interest Election Request in a form approved by such Agent and signed by the applicable Borrower.  Without limiting the rights of any Borrower to repay outstanding Borrowings or to make Borrowings in any currency permitted hereunder, no Borrower shall be permitted to change the Borrower or currency of any particular Borrowing once it has been made.
 
(c) Each telephonic and written Interest Election Request shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:
 
 
 
 
[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]
 
 

 
45
 
(i)  
the Borrowing to which such Interest Election Request applies and, if different options are being elected with respect to different portions thereof, the portions thereof to be allocated to each resulting Borrowing (in which case the information to be specified pursuant to clauses (iii) and (iv) below shall be specified for each resulting Borrowing);
 
(ii)  
the effective date of the election made pursuant to such Interest Election Request, which shall be a Business Day;
 
(iii)  
the Type of the resulting Borrowing; and
 
(iv)  
if the resulting Borrowing is to be a LIBOR Borrowing or a EURIBOR Borrowing, the Interest Period to be applicable thereto after giving effect to such election, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period”.
 
If any such Interest Election Request requests a LIBOR or EURIBOR Borrowing but does not specify an Interest Period, then the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration.
 
(d) Promptly following receipt of an Interest Election Request, the applicable Agent shall advise each affected Lender of the details thereof and of such Lender’s portion of each resulting Borrowing.
 
(e) If the applicable Borrower fails to deliver a timely Interest Election Request (i) with respect to a LIBOR Revolving Borrowing denominated in U.S. Dollars prior to the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, then, unless such Borrowing is repaid as provided herein, at the end of such Interest Period such Borrowing shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing or (ii) with respect to a LIBOR Revolving Borrowing or EURIBOR Revolving Borrower denominated in a Committed Alternative Currency, then, unless such Borrowing is repaid as provided herein, at the end of the Interest Period such Borrowing shall be continued as a Borrowing of the same Type with an Interest Period of one month’s duration.  Notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the applicable Agent, at the request of the Required Lenders, so notifies the applicable Borrower, then, so long as an Event of Default is continuing (i) no outstanding Revolving Borrowing denominated in U.S. Dollars may be converted to or continued as a LIBOR Borrowing, (ii) unless repaid, each LIBOR Borrowing denominated in U.S. Dollars shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing at the end of the Interest Period thereto and (iii) unless repaid, each Revolving Borrowing denominated in a Committed Alternative Currency shall be continued as a LIBOR Borrowing or a EURIBOR Borrowing, as the case may be, with an Interest Period of one month’s duration.
 
SECTION 2.09. Termination, Reduction and Extension of Commitments.  (a)  Unless previously terminated, the Commitments of each Class shall terminate on the Maturity Date.
 
 
 
 
[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]
 
 

 
46
 
(b)  The Company may at any time terminate, or from time to time reduce, the Commitments of either Class; provided that (i) each reduction of the Commitments of either Class shall be in an amount that is an integral multiple of US$5,000,000 and not less than US$10,000,000 and (ii) the Company shall not terminate or reduce the Commitments of either Class if, after giving effect to any concurrent prepayment of the Loans in accordance with Section 2.11, the sum of the Revolving Credit Exposures of such Class plus the aggregate principal amount of outstanding Competitive Loans of such Class would exceed the total Commitments of such Class.
 
(c) The Company shall notify the Administrative Agent of any election to terminate or reduce the Commitments of either Class under paragraph (b) of this Section at least three Business Days prior to the effective date of such termination or reduction, specifying such election and the effective date thereof.  Promptly following receipt of any notice, the Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of the contents thereof.  Each notice delivered by the Company pursuant to this Section shall be irrevocable; provided that a notice of termination of the Commitments of either Class delivered by the Company may state that such notice is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities, in which case such notice may be revoked by the Company (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified effective date) if such condition is not satisfied.  Any termination or reduction of the Commitments of either Class shall be permanent.  Each reduction of the Commitments of either Class shall be made ratably among the Lenders of such Class in accordance with their respective Commitments of such Class.
 
(d) (i)  The Company may, by delivery of a written request (a “Maturity Date Extension Request”) to the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly deliver a copy to each of the Lenders) not less than 30 days and not more than 60 days prior to the first or second anniversary of the Effective Date, request that the Lenders extend the Maturity Date for an additional period of one year (the “Extended Maturity Date”); provided that there shall be no more than two extensions of the Maturity Date pursuant to this Section.  Each Lender shall, by notice to the Company and the Administrative Agent given not later than the 15th day after the date of the Administrative Agent’s receipt of the Company’s Maturity Date Extension Request (or such other date as the Company and the Administrative Agent may otherwise agree, which may include extensions of any previously announced date; such date, the “Extension Date”), advise the Company whether or not it agrees to the requested extension (each such Lender agreeing to a requested extension being called a “Consenting Lender”, and each such Lender declining to agree to a requested extension being called a “Declining Lender”).  Any Lender that has not so advised the Company and the Administrative Agent by such Extension Date shall be deemed to have declined to agree to such extension and shall be a Declining Lender.  If Lenders holding 66⅔% of the aggregate Commitments shall have agreed to a Maturity Date Extension Request by the Extension Date, then the Maturity Date shall, as to the Consenting Lenders, be extended to the first anniversary of the Maturity Date theretofore in effect.  The decision to agree or withhold agreement to any Maturity Date Extension Request shall be at the sole discretion of each Lender.  The Commitment of any Declining Lender shall terminate on the Maturity Date in effect prior to giving effect to any such extension (such Maturity Date being called the “Existing Maturity Date”).
 
 
 
 
[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]

(ii)  
It is understood that the Company shall have the right, pursuant to Section 2.19(b), at any time prior to the Existing Maturity Date, to replace a Declining Lender with a Lender or other financial institution that will agree to the applicable Maturity Date Extension Request, and any such replacement Lender shall for all purposes constitute a Consenting Lender as of the date it agrees to replace such Declining Lender.
 
(iii)  
Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.09, no extension of the Existing Maturity Date shall be effective with respect to any Lender unless, on and as of the Extension Date in respect of such extension, the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 shall be satisfied (with all references in such Section to a Borrowing being deemed to be references to such extension) and the Administrative Agent shall have received a certificate to that effect, dated as of such Extension Date, and executed by a Financial Officer.
 
(iv)  
On the Existing Maturity Date, if there remain any Declining Lenders and any Revolving Loans are outstanding, each Borrower (A) shall prepay all Revolving Loans then outstanding (including all accrued but unpaid interest thereon) and (B) may, at its option, fund such prepayment by simultaneously borrowing Revolving Loans of Class or Classes and the Types and for the Interest Periods specified in a Borrowing Request delivered pursuant to Section 2.03, which Revolving Loans shall be made by the Lenders ratably in accordance with their respective Commitments of the applicable Class or Classes (calculated after giving effect to the termination of the Commitments of the Declining Lenders).  The payments made pursuant to clause (A) above in respect of each LIBOR Loan or EURIBOR Loan shall be subject to Section 2.16.
 
SECTION 2.10. Repayment of Loans; Evidence of Debt.  (a)  Each Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay (i) to the Administrative Agent (and, in the case of an Alternative Currency Loan, with a copy to the London Administrative Agent) for the account of each Lender the then unpaid principal amount of each Revolving Loan of such Lender owing by such Borrower on the Maturity Date, (ii) to the applicable Agent for the account of each Lender the then unpaid principal amount of each Competitive Loan owing by such Borrower on the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Loan and (iii) to each Swingline Lender the then unpaid principal amount of each Swingline Loan of such Swingline Lender owing by such Borrower on the earlier of the Maturity Date and the date that is five Business Days after such Swingline Loan is made; provided that on each date that a Revolving Borrowing or Competitive Borrowing (other than a Revolving Borrowing or Competitive Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency) is made by a Borrower, such Borrower shall repay all Swingline Loans of such Borrower which were outstanding at the time such Borrowing was requested.
 
(b) Each Lender shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice an account or accounts evidencing the indebtedness of each Borrower to such Lender
 
 
 
 
[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]

resulting from each Loan made by such Lender, including the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid to such Lender from time to time hereunder.
 
(c) The applicable Agent shall maintain accounts in which it shall record (i) the amount and currency of each Loan made to each Borrower hereunder, the Class and Type thereof and, in the case of any LIBOR or EURIBOR Borrowing, the Interest Period applicable thereto, (ii) the amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from each Borrower to each Lender hereunder and (iii) the amount of any sum received by such Agent hereunder for the account of the Lenders and each Lender’s share thereof.
 
(d) The entries made in the accounts maintained pursuant to paragraph (b) or (c) of this Section shall be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations recorded therein; provided that the failure of any Lender or any Agent to maintain such accounts or any error therein shall not in any manner affect the obligation of any Borrower to repay its Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
 
(e) Any Lender may request that Loans of any Class made by it to any Borrower be evidenced by a promissory note.  In such event, the applicable Borrower shall prepare, execute and deliver to such Lender a promissory note payable to the order of such Lender (or, if requested by such Lender, to such Lender and its registered assigns) and in a form approved by the applicable Agent.  Thereafter, the Loans of the applicable Borrower evidenced by such promissory note and interest thereon shall at all times (including after assignment pursuant to Section 9.04) be represented by one or more promissory notes in such form payable to the order of the payee named therein (or, if such promissory note is a registered note, to such payee and its registered assigns).
 
SECTION 2.11. Prepayment of Loans.  (a)  Each Borrower shall have the right at any time and from time to time to prepay any of its Borrowings in whole or in part, subject to prior notice in accordance with paragraph (d) of this Section; provided that such Borrower shall not have the right to prepay any Competitive Loan without the prior consent of the Lender thereof.
 
(b) If, as of any Revaluation Date, the sum of the total Revolving Credit Exposures of either Class plus the aggregate principal amount of Competitive Loans of such Class exceeds 105% of the total Commitments of such Class, then the applicable Borrowers shall, not later than the date that is four Business Days after the Company receives notice thereof from the Administrative Agent, prepay one or more Revolving Borrowings or Swingline Borrowings in an aggregate amount sufficient to reduce such sum to an amount that does not exceed the total Commitments of such Class.
 
(c) Prior to any optional or mandatory prepayment of Borrowings hereunder, the applicable Borrower shall select the Borrowing or Borrowings to be prepaid and shall specify such selection in the notice of such prepayment pursuant to paragraph (d) of this Section.
 
 
 
 
[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]

(d) The applicable Borrower shall notify the applicable Agent (and, in the case of prepayment of a Swingline Loan, the Swingline Lender) by telephone (confirmed by telecopy) of any prepayment by such Borrower hereunder (i) in the case of prepayment of a LIBOR Revolving Borrowing or EURIBOR Revolving Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., Local Time, three Business Days before the date of prepayment, (ii) in the case of prepayment of an ABR Revolving Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., Local Time, one Business Day before the date of prepayment or (iii) in the case of prepayment of a Swingline Loan, not later than 12:00 noon, Local Time, on the date of prepayment.  Each such notice shall be irrevocable and shall specify the prepayment date and the principal amount of each Borrowing or portion thereof to be prepaid; provided that if a notice of optional prepayment is given in connection with a conditional notice of termination of the Commitments as contemplated by Section 2.09, then such notice of prepayment may be revoked if such notice of termination is revoked in accordance with Section 2.09.  Promptly following receipt of any such notice relating to a Revolving Borrowing, the applicable Agent shall advise the participating Lenders of the contents thereof.  Each partial prepayment of any Revolving Borrowing shall be in an amount that would be permitted in the case of an advance of a Revolving Borrowing of the same currency and Type as provided in Section 2.02.  Each prepayment of a Revolving Borrowing shall be applied ratably to the Loans included in the prepaid Borrowing.  Prepayments shall be accompanied by accrued interest to the extent required by Section 2.13.
 
SECTION 2.12. Fees.  (a)  The Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of each Lender, a facility fee, which shall accrue at the Applicable Rate on the daily amount of each Commitment of such Lender (whether used or unused) during the period from and including the Effective Date to but excluding the date on which such Commitment terminates; provided that if any Lender continues to have any Revolving Credit Exposure of either Class after its Commitment of such Class terminates, then such facility fee shall continue to accrue on the daily amount of such Lender’s Revolving Credit Exposure of such Class from and including the date on which such Commitment terminates to but excluding the date on which such Lender ceases to have any Revolving Credit Exposure.  Accrued facility fees shall be payable in arrears on the last day of March, June, September and December of each year and on the date on which the Commitments of such Class terminate, commencing on the first such date to occur after the date hereof; provided that any facility fees accruing with respect to a Class after the date on which the Commitments of such Class terminate shall be payable on demand.  All facility fees shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).
 
(b) Each Borrower agrees to pay (i) to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender of the applicable Class, a participation fee with respect to its participations in Letters of Credit of such Class issued for the account of such Borrower, which shall accrue at the same Applicable Rate as the spread over the Adjusted LIBO rate applicable to LIBOR Revolving Loans on the average daily amount of such Lender’s LC Exposure (excluding any portion thereof attributable to unreimbursed LC Disbursements) attributable to such Letters of Credit during the period from and

(a) the applicable Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted LIBO Rate, the LIBO Rate or the Adjusted EURIBO Rate, as applicable, for such Interest Period; or
 
(b) the applicable Agent is advised by the Required Lenders (or, in the case of a LIBOR Competitive Loan or EURIBOR Competitive Loan, the Lender that is required to make such Loan) that the Adjusted LIBO Rate, the LIBO Rate or the Adjusted EURIBO Rate, as applicable, for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders (or Lender) of making or maintaining their Loans (or its Loan) included in such Borrowing for such Interest Period;
 
then the applicable Agent shall give notice thereof to the Company and the Lenders by telephone or telecopy as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until such Agent notifies the Company and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer

exist, (i) any Interest Election Request that requests the conversion of any Revolving Borrowing to, or continuation of any Revolving Borrowing as, a LIBOR Borrowing or EURIBOR Borrowing, as the case may be, shall be ineffective, (ii) if any Borrowing Request requests a LIBOR Borrowing denominated in U.S. Dollars, such Borrowing shall be made as an ABR Borrowing and (iii) any request by the Company for a LIBOR Competitive Borrowing, EURIBOR Competitive Borrowing or a Revolving Borrowing in a Committed Alternative Currency shall be ineffective; provided that (A) if the circumstances giving rise to such notice do not affect all the Lenders, then requests by any Borrower for LIBOR Competitive Borrowings may be made to Lenders that are not affected thereby, (B) if the circumstances giving rise to such notice affect Borrowings of only one Type or currency, then the other Type or currencies of Borrowings shall be permitted and (C) if the circumstances giving rise to such notice affect one or more Borrowers but not all Borrowers, then Borrowings by the unaffected Borrower or Borrowers shall not be affected thereby.
 
SECTION 2.15. Increased Costs.  (a)  If any Change in Law shall:
 
(i)  
impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, any Lender (except any such reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the Adjusted EURIBO Rate) or any Issuing Bank; or
 
(ii)  
impose on any Lender, any Issuing Bank or the London or European interbank market any other condition affecting this Agreement or LIBOR Loans, EURIBOR Loans or Fixed Rate Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or participation therein;
 
and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender of making or maintaining any LIBOR Loan, EURIBOR Loan or Fixed Rate Loan (or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan) or to increase the cost to such Lender or such Issuing Bank of participating in, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender or such Issuing Bank hereunder (whether of principal, interest or otherwise), then the applicable Borrower or the Company will pay to such Lender or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.
 
(b)  If any Lender or any Issuing Bank reasonably determines that any Change in Law regarding capital requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement or the Loans made by, or participations in Letters of Credit held by, such Lender, or the Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank, to a level below that which such Lender or such Issuing Bank or such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy), then from time to
 
 
 
 
[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]
 
 

 
54
 
time the applicable Borrower or the Company will pay to such Lender or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such Issuing Bank or such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s holding company for any such reduction suffered.

(d) Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or any Issuing Bank to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the applicable Borrower and the Company shall not be required to compensate a Lender or an Issuing Bank pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 270 days prior to the date that such Lender or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, notifies the Company of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s or such Issuing Bank’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 270-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.
 
(e) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section, a Lender shall not be entitled to compensation pursuant to this Section in respect of any Competitive Loan if the Change in Law that would otherwise entitle it to such compensation shall have been publicly announced prior to submission of the Competitive Bid pursuant to which such Loan was made.
 
SECTION 2.16. Break Funding Payments.  In the event of (a) the payment of any principal of any LIBOR Loan, EURIBOR Loan or Fixed Rate Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of an Event of Default), (b) the conversion of any LIBOR Loan or EURIBOR Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, (c) the failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay any LIBOR Loan, EURIBOR Loan or Fixed Rate Loan on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto (regardless of whether such notice may be revoked under Section 2.11(b) and is revoked in accordance therewith), (d) the failure to borrow any Competitive Loan after accepting the Competitive Bid to make such Loan, or (e) the assignment of any LIBOR Loan, EURIBOR Loan or Fixed Rate Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto as a result of a request by the Company pursuant to Section 2.19, then, in any such event, the applicable Borrower shall compensate each affected Lender for the loss, cost and expense attributable to such event.  In the case of a LIBOR Loan or EURIBOR Loan, such loss, cost or expense to any Lender shall be deemed to include an amount determined by such Lender to be the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest which would have accrued on the principal amount of such Loan had such event not occurred, at the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the
 
 
 
 
[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]
 
 

 
55
 
Adjusted EURIBO Rate, as the case may be, that would have been applicable to such Loan, for the period from the date of such event to the last day of the then current Interest Period therefor (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, for the period that would have been the Interest Period for such Loan), over (ii) the amount of interest which would accrue on such principal amount for such period at the interest rate which such Lender would bid were it to bid, at the commencement of such period, for deposits in the applicable currency and of a comparable amount and period from other banks in the London or European interbank market.  A certificate of any Lender setting forth any amount or amounts that such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section shall be delivered to the Company and shall be conclusive absent manifest error.  The applicable Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof.
 
SECTION 2.17. Taxes.  (a)  Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of any Borrower hereunder shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes; provided that if a Borrower shall be required to deduct any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes from such payments, then (i) the sum payable shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) the applicable Agent, Lender or Issuing Bank (as the case may be) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) such Borrower shall make such deductions and (iii) such Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
 
(b) In addition, each Borrower shall pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
 
(c) The applicable Borrower shall indemnify each Agent, each Lender and each Issuing Bank, within 10 days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes paid by such Agent, such Lender or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, on or with respect to any payment by or on account of any obligation of such Borrower hereunder (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) and any penalties, interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other 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 applicable Borrower by a Lender or an Issuing Bank, or by an Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender or an Issuing Bank, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
 
(d) As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes by any Borrower to a Governmental Authority, the applicable Borrower shall deliver to the applicable Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to such Agent.

(e) Any Foreign Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding tax under the law of the jurisdiction in which any Borrower is located, or any treaty to which such jurisdiction is a party, with respect to payments under this Agreement shall deliver to such Borrower (with a copy to the applicable Agent), at the time or times prescribed by applicable law, such properly completed and executed documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by such Borrower as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate; provided that with respect to amounts payable by a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower, such Lender has received written notice from such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower advising it of the availability of such exemption or reduction and such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall cooperate with such Lender in preparing all applicable documentation.

SECTION 2.18. Payments Generally; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Set-offs.  (a)   Except for payments required to be made hereunder in a Committed Alternative Currency in respect of principal of and interest on Revolving Loans denominated in such currency, or in an Alternative Currency as expressly provided in Section 2.04(g), each Borrower shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder (whether of principal, interest, fees or reimbursement of LC Disbursements, or of amounts payable under Section 2.15, 2.16 or 2.17, or otherwise) in U.S. Dollars prior to 12:00 noon, Local Time, on the date when due, in immediately available funds, without set-off or counterclaim.  All such payments in U.S. Dollars shall be made to the Administrative Agent at its offices at 270 Park Avenue, New York, New York, except payments to be made directly to an Issuing Bank or Swingline Lender as expressly provided herein and except that payments pursuant to Sections 2.15, 2.16, 2.17 and 9.03 shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto, without set-off or counterclaim.  All payments to be made by a Borrower in an Alternative Currency shall be made in such Alternative Currency in such funds as may then be customary for the settlement of international transactions in such Alternative Currency for the account of the London Administrative Agent at such time and at such place as shall have been notified by the London Administrative Agent to the applicable Borrower by not less than four Business Days’ notice.  Any amounts received after the time required to be received hereunder on any date may, in the discretion of the applicable Agent, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon.  The applicable Agent shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof.  If any payment hereunder shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be payable for the period of such extension.  All payments under any Loan Document of principal or interest in respect of any Loan denominated in an Alternative Currency or of any breakage indemnity in respect of any such Loan shall be made in the currency in which such Loan is denominated.   All other payments required to be made by any Loan Party under any Loan Document shall be made in U.S. Dollars except that any amounts payable under Section 2.15, 2.17 or 9.03

(or any indemnification or expense reimbursement provision of any other Loan Document) that are invoiced in a currency other than U.S. Dollars shall be payable in the currency so invoiced.  Any payment required to be made by an Agent hereunder shall be deemed to have been made by the time required if such Agent shall, at or before such time, have taken the necessary steps to make such payment in accordance with the regulations or operating procedures of the clearing or settlement system used by such Agent to make such payment.
 
(b) If at any time insufficient funds are received by and available to any Agent to pay fully all amounts of principal, unreimbursed LC Disbursements, interest and fees then due hereunder, such funds shall be applied (i) first, towards payment of interest and fees then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of interest and fees then due to such parties, and (ii) second, towards payment of principal and unreimbursed LC Disbursements then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of principal and unreimbursed LC Disbursements then due to such parties; provided that all funds received by such Agent in an Alternative Currency shall be applied ratably to the payment of amounts due with respect to Loans denominated in such Alternative Currency in accordance with the provisions of this paragraph to the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts then due to such parties.
 
(c) If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of set-off or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on any of its Revolving Loans or participations in LC Disbursements or Swingline Loans resulting in such Lender receiving payment of a greater proportion of the aggregate amount of its Revolving Loans and participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans and accrued interest thereon than the proportion received by any other Lender, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Revolving Loans and participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans of other Lenders to the extent necessary so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders ratably in accordance with the aggregate amount of principal of and accrued interest on their respective Revolving Loans and participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans; provided that (i) if any such participations are purchased and all or any portion of the payment giving rise thereto is recovered,  such participations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest, and (ii) the provisions of this paragraph shall not be construed to apply to any payment made by any Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement or any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans or participations in LC Disbursements to any assignee or participant, other than to the Company or any Subsidiary or Affiliate thereof (as to which the provisions of this paragraph shall apply).  Each Borrower 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 Borrower rights of set-off and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of such Borrower in the amount of such participation.

(d) Unless an Agent shall have received notice from the applicable Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to such Agent for the account of any Lenders or any Issuing Bank hereunder that such Borrower will not make such payment, such Agent may assume that such Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the applicable Lenders or Issuing Bank, as the case may be, the amount due.  In such event, if such Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the applicable Lenders or each Issuing Bank, as the case may be, severally agrees to repay to such Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender or such Issuing Bank 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 such Agent, at the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by such Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation.
 
(e) If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.05(c), 2.06(d) or (e), 2.07(b), 2.18(d) or 9.03(c), then the applicable Agent may, in its discretion (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), apply any amounts thereafter received by such Agent for the account of such Lender to satisfy such Lender’s obligations under such Sections until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid.
 
SECTION 2.19. Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders.  (a)  If any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.15, or if any Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.17, then such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to file any certificate or document reasonably requested by the Company or designate a different lending office for funding or booking its affected Loans hereunder or to assign its affected rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if such filing, designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.15 or 2.17, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) in the judgment of such Lender, would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender.  The Company hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.
 
(b) If any Lender is a Declining Lender in respect of any Maturity Date Extension Request, or if any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.15, or if any Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.17, or if any Lender defaults in its obligation to fund Loans hereunder, or if the Company is entitled to replace a Lender pursuant to Section 9.02(c), then the Company may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 9.04), all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement (other than in respect of any outstanding Competitive Loans held by it) to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided that (i) the Company shall have received the prior
 
 
 
 
[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]
 
 

 
59
 
written consent of the Administrative Agent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, (ii) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans (other than Competitive Loans) and participations in LC Disbursements and Swingline Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder, from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the applicable Borrower or the Company (in the case of all other amounts), (iii) in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 2.15 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 2.17, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments and (iv) in the case of any such assignment resulting from a Lender being a Declining Lender, the assignee shall have agreed to the applicable Maturity Date Extension Request; provided further that, in the case of any such right to require assignment by a Lender that becomes a Declining Lender, such right shall not apply after the applicable Extension Date unless the applicable Maturity Date Extension Request shall have become effective.  A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Company to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.
 
SECTION 2.20. Increase in Commitments.  (a)  The Company may, by written notice to the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly deliver a copy to each of the Lenders of the applicable Class), request that the Tranche A Commitments or the Tranche B Commitments be increased; provided that the total Commitments shall not be increased by more than US$500,000,000 during the term of this Agreement pursuant to this Section.  Such notice shall set forth the amount of the requested increase in the total Commitments, the Class to be so increased and the date on which such increase is requested to become effective (which shall be not less than 10 Business Days or more than 60 days after the date of such notice), and shall offer each Lender of such Class the opportunity to increase its Commitment of such Class by its Applicable Percentage of the proposed increased amount.  Each Lender shall, by notice to the Company and the Administrative Agent given not more than 10 days after the date of the Company’s notice, either agree to increase its Commitment of the applicable Class by all or a portion of the offered amount (each Lender so agreeing being an “Increasing Lender”) or decline to increase its Commitment of the applicable Class (and any Lender that does not deliver such a notice within such period of 10 days shall be deemed to have declined to increase its Commitment of such Class).  In the event that, on the 10th day after the Company shall have delivered a notice pursuant to the first sentence of this paragraph, the Lenders of the applicable Class shall have agreed pursuant to the preceding sentence to increase their Commitments of such Class by an aggregate amount less than the increase in the total Commitments of such Class requested by the Company, the Company may arrange for one or more banks or other financial institutions (any such bank or other financial institution being called an “Augmenting Lender”), which may include any Lender, to extend Commitments of such Class or increase their existing Commitments of such Class in an aggregate amount equal to the unsubscribed amount; provided that each Augmenting Lender, if not already a Lender of either Class hereunder, shall be subject to the approval of the Administrative Agent, each Issuing Bank and each Swingline Lender (such approvals not to be unreasonably withheld), and the Company and each

The bank serving as an Agent hereunder shall have the same rights and powers in its capacity as a Lender as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not such Agent, and such bank and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to and generally engage in any kind of business with the Company or any Subsidiary or other Affiliate thereof as if it were not an Agent hereunder.
 
The bank serving as an Agent shall not have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth in the Loan Documents.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, (a) such Agent shall not be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether a Default has occurred and is continuing, (b) such Agent shall not have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated by the Loan Documents that such Agent is required to exercise in writing by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 9.02), and (c) except as expressly set forth in the Loan Documents, such Agent shall not have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries that is communicated to or obtained by the bank serving as such Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity.  An Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 9.02) or in the absence of its own gross negligence or wilful misconduct.  An Agent shall be deemed not to have knowledge of any Default unless and until written notice thereof is given to such Agent by a Borrower or a Lender, and such Agent shall not be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain or inquire into (i) any statement, warranty or representation made in or in connection with any Loan Document, (ii) the contents of any certificate, report or other document delivered thereunder or in connection therewith, (iii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants, agreements or other terms or conditions set forth in any Loan Document, (iv) the validity, enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of any Loan Document or any other agreement, instrument or document, or (v) the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Article IV or elsewhere in any Loan Document, other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to such Agent.

An Agent may perform any and all its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by such Agent.  Such Agent and any such sub-agent may perform any and all its duties and exercise its rights and

powers through their respective Related Parties.  The exculpatory provisions of the preceding paragraphs shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Related Parties of (i) the Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent and (ii) the London Administrative Agent and any sub-agent, and shall apply to their respective activities in connection with the syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein as well as activities as Administrative Agent and as London Administrative Agent, respectively.
 
Subject to the appointment and acceptance of a successor Administrative Agent or successor London Administrative Agent, as the case may be, as provided in this paragraph, an Agent may resign at any time by notifying the Lenders, the Issuing Banks, the Company and the other Agent.  Upon any such resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right, with the consent of the Company  (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, and shall not be required so long as any Event of Default set forth in clause (i) or (j) of Section 7.01 has occurred and is continuing) and the other Agent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), to appoint a successor.  If no successor shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after the retiring Agent gives notice of its resignation, then such retiring Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders and the Issuing Banks, appoint a successor Agent which shall be (i) a bank with an office in New York, New York, or an Affiliate of any such bank, for the successor Administrative Agent and (ii) a bank with an office in London, United Kingdom, or an Affiliate of any such bank, for the successor London Administrative Agent.  Upon the acceptance of its appointment as Administrative Agent or London Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Agent, and the retiring Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder.  The fees payable by the Company or any Subsidiary Borrower to a successor Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between the Company and such successor.  After an Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article and Section 9.03 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Agent, its sub-agents and their respective Related Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while it was acting as Agent.
 
Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon either Agent or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement.  Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon either Agent or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement, any other Loan Document or related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder.
 
Each party hereto agrees and acknowledges that the Syndication Agent and the Arrangers do not have any duties or responsibilities in their capacities as Syndication Agents and Arrangers, respectively, hereunder and shall not have, or become subject to, any liability hereunder in such capacities.

or any other provision of any Loan Document specifying the number or percentage of Lenders required to waive, amend or modify any rights thereunder or make any determination or grant any consent thereunder, without the written consent of each Lender; provided further that, (i) no such agreement shall amend, modify or otherwise affect the rights or duties of any Agent, an Issuing Bank or a Swingline Lender hereunder without the prior written consent of such Agent, such Issuing Bank or such Swingline Lender, as the case may be and (ii) any waiver, amendment or modification of this Agreement or any other Loan Document that by its terms affects the rights or duties under this Agreement of one Class (but not of both Classes) may be effected by an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the Company and requisite percentage in interest of the affected Lenders under the applicable Class.
 
(c) If, in connection with any proposed waiver, amendment or modification of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any provision hereof or thereof, the consent of one or more of the Lenders whose consent is required is not obtained, then the Company  shall have the right to replace each such non-consenting Lender with one or more assignees pursuant to Section 2.19(b); provided that at the time of such replacement, each such assignee consents to the proposed waiver, amendment or modification.
 
(d) Notwithstanding anything in paragraph (b) of this Section to the contrary, this Agreement and the other Loan Documents may be amended at any time and from time to time to establish one or more new Classes (a “New Class”) of revolving credit commitments to be made available to any or all of the Borrowers, by an agreement in writing entered into by the Company, the Administrative Agent and each Person (including any Lender) that shall agree to provide any portion of such New Class of revolving credit commitments so established (but without the consent of any other Lender), and each Person that shall not already be a Lender shall, at the time the agreement becomes effective, become a Lender with the same effect as if it had originally been a Lender under this Agreement with the commitments set forth in such agreement; provided that the establishment of a New Class shall not result in the aggregate amount of the sum of the Commitments plus the commitments under such New Class exceeding the aggregate amount of the Commitments outstanding immediately prior to the establishment of such New Class; provided further that, any Person that is Lender immediately prior to the establishment of such New Class and that wishes to participate as a Lender in such New Class may, with the consent of both the Company and the Administrative Agent (in each such case, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), reduce the existing Commitment of such Lender, on a dollar-for-dollar basis, by the aggregate amount of such Lender’s commitment under such New Class.  Any such agreement shall amend the provisions of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to set forth the terms of each New Class of revolving credit commitments established thereby (including the amount and final maturity thereof (which shall not be earlier than the Maturity Date), the interest to accrue and be payable thereon and any fees to be payable in respect thereof) and to effect such other changes (including changes to the provisions of this Section, Section 2.17 and the definition of “Required Lenders”) as the Company and the Administrative Agent shall deem necessary or advisable in connection with the establishment of any such New Class of revolving credit commitments;
 
 
 
 
[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]
 
 

 
83
 
provided, however, that no such agreement shall (i) effect any changes described in any of clauses (i), (ii), (iii) or (iv) of paragraph (b) of this Section without the consent of each Person required to consent to such change under such clause (it being agreed, however, that the establishment of any New Class of revolving credit commitments will not, of itself, be deemed to effect any of the changes described in clauses (iv) or (v) of such paragraph (b)), or (ii) establish any covenant, Event of Default or remedy that by its terms benefits one or more Classes, but not all Classes, of Loans or Borrowing without the prior written consent of Lenders holding a majority in interest of the Loans and Commitments of each Class not so benefited.  The loans, commitments and borrowings of any New Class established pursuant to this paragraph shall constitute Loans, Commitments and Borrowings under, and shall be entitled to all the benefits afforded by, this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and shall, without limiting the foregoing, benefit equally and ratably from the Guarantee by the Company and the Guarantees by the Subsidiary Guarantors under the Guarantee Agreement.  The Company shall take any actions reasonably required by the Administrative Agent to ensure and/or demonstrate that the Guarantee by the Company and the Guarantees by the Subsidiary Guarantors under the Guarantee Agreement continue to be in full force and effect after the establishment of any New Class of revolving credit commitments.
 
SECTION 9.03  Expenses; Indemnity; Damage Waiver.  (a)  The Company shall pay (i) all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent, the London Administrative Agent, the Arrangers and their respective Affiliates, including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP, counsel for the Agents and the Arrangers, in connection with the syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein, the preparation and administration of the Loan Documents or any amendments, modifications or waivers of the provisions thereof (whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby shall be consummated), (ii) all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by any Issuing Bank in connection with the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit or any demand for payment thereunder and (iii) all out-of-pocket expenses incurred by either Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender, including the fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for the Agents, any Issuing Bank or any Lender, in connection with the enforcement or protection of its rights in connection with the Loan Documents, including its rights under this Section, or in connection with the Loans made or Letters of Credit issued hereunder, including all such out-of-pocket expenses incurred during  any workout, restructuring or negotiations in respect of such Loans or Letters of Credit.
 
(b) The Company shall indemnify either Agent, the Syndication Agent, each Arranger, any Issuing Bank and each Lender, and each Related Party of any of the foregoing Persons (each such Person being called an “Indemnitee”) against, and hold each Indemnitee harmless from, any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses, including the fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for any Indemnitee, incurred by or asserted against any Indemnitee arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of (i) the execution or delivery of any Loan Document or any other agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the performance by the parties to the Loan Documents of their respective obligations thereunder or the consummation of the

84
 
Transactions or any other transactions contemplated hereby, (ii) any Loan or Letter of Credit or the use of the proceeds therefrom (including any refusal by any Issuing Bank to honor a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit if the documents presented in connection with such demand do not strictly comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit), (iii) any actual or alleged presence or Release of Hazardous Materials on or from any property owned or operated by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, or any Environmental Liability related in any way to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, or (iv) any actual or prospective claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, whether based on contract, tort or any other theory and regardless of whether any Indemnitee is a party thereto; provided that such indemnity shall not, as to any Indemnitee, be available (i) to the extent that such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or related expenses are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment to have resulted from the gross negligence or wilful misconduct of such Indemnitee (it being understood that, for purposes of this clause, each of an Arranger, an Agent or a Lender, on the one hand, and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents and controlling persons, on the other hand, shall be considered to be a single party seeking indemnification) or (ii) with respect to any amounts paid pursuant to any settlement made by such Indemnitee without the consent of the Company, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.
 
(c) To the extent that the Company fails to pay any amount required to be paid by it to an Agent, an Issuing Bank or a Swingline Lender under paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section, each Lender severally agrees to pay to such Agent, such Issuing Bank or such Swingline Lender, as the case may be, such Lender’s Applicable Percentage (determined as of the time that the applicable unreimbursed expense or indemnity payment is sought) of such unpaid amount; provided that the unreimbursed expense or indemnified loss, claim, damage, liability or related expense, as the case may be (i) was incurred by or asserted against such Agent, such Issuing Bank or such Swingline Lender in its capacity as such and (ii) in respect of Extended Letters of Credit issued under Section 2.06(l), was incurred at or prior to the close of business on the date that is five Business Days prior to the Maturity Date.  Any payment by a Lender hereunder shall not relieve the Company of its liability in respect thereof.
 
(d) To the extent permitted by applicable law, each of the Company and the Subsidiary Borrowers shall not assert, and hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the Transactions, any Loan or Letter of Credit or the use of the proceeds thereof.
 
(e) All amounts due under this Section shall be payable promptly after written demand therefor.
 
SECTION 9.04.  Successors and Assigns.  (a)  The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby (including any Affiliate of any Issuing Bank that issues any Letter of Credit), except that (i) neither the Company nor

85
 
any Subsidiary Borrower may assign or otherwise transfer any of their rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of each Lender (and any attempted assignment or transfer by the Company or any Subsidiary Borrower without such consent shall be null and void) and (ii) no Lender may assign or otherwise transfer its rights or obligations hereunder except in accordance with this Section.  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 (including any Affiliate of any Issuing Bank that issues any Letter of Credit), Participants (to the extent provided in paragraph (c) of this Section) and, to the extent expressly contemplated hereby, the Related Parties of each Agent, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders) any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or by reason of this Agreement.

prevent an assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations in respect of one Class;

participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with paragraph (c) of this Section.
 
(iv) The Administrative Agent, acting for this purpose as an agent of the Borrowers, shall maintain at one of its offices 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 Commitment or Commitments of, and principal amount of the Loans and LC Disbursements owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”), and shall give prompt written notice to the Company of each Assignment and Assumption so accepted and recorded.  The entries in the Register shall be conclusive, and the Company, the Subsidiary Borrowers, the Agents, the Issuing Banks and the Lenders may 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, notwithstanding notice to the contrary.  The Register shall be available for inspection by the Company, the Subsidiary Borrowers, any Issuing Bank and any Lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.
 
(v) Upon its receipt of a duly completed Assignment and Assumption executed by an assigning Lender and an assignee, the assignee’s completed Administrative Questionnaire (unless the assignee shall already be a Lender hereunder), the processing and recordation fee referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section and any written consent to such assignment required by paragraph (b) of this Section, the Administrative Agent shall accept such Assignment and Assumption and record the information contained therein in the Register.  No assignment shall be effective for purposes of this Agreement unless it has been recorded in the Register as provided in this paragraph.
 
(c) (i)  Any Lender may, without the consent of any Borrower, any Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Swingline Lender, sell participations to one or more banks or other entities (a “Participant”) in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment or Commitments and the Loans owing to it); provided that (A) such Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (B) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations and (C) the Company, the Subsidiary Borrowers, the Agents, the Issuing Banks and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement.  Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which a 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 described in the first proviso to Section 9.02(b) that affects such Participant.  Subject to paragraph (c)(ii) of this Section, each of the Company and the Subsidiary Borrowers agree that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.15, 2.16 and 2.17 to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section.  To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of

Section 9.08 as though it were a Lender, provided that such Participant agrees to be subject to Section 2.18(c) as though it were a Lender.  Each Lender that sells a participating interest in any Loan, Commitment or other interest to a Participant shall, as agent of the Company solely for the purpose of this Section 9.04, record in book entries maintained by such Lender the name and the amount of the participating interest of each Participant entitled to receive payments in respect of such participating interests.
 
(ii) A Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 2.15 or 2.17 than the applicable 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 prior written consent of the Company.  A Participant that would be a Foreign Lender if it were a Lender shall not be entitled to the benefits of Section 2.17 unless the Company is notified of the participation sold to such Participant and such Participant agrees, for the benefit of the Company and the Subsidiary Borrowers, to comply with Section 2.17(e) as though it were a Lender.
 
(d) Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank, and this Section shall not apply to any such pledge or assignment of a security interest; provided that no such pledge or assignment of a security interest shall release a Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.
 
SECTION 9.05.  Survival.  All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made by the Loan Parties in the Loan Documents and in the certificates or other instruments delivered in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be considered to have been relied upon by the other parties hereto and shall survive the execution and delivery of the Loan Documents and the making of any Loans and issuance of any Letters of Credit, regardless of any investigation made by any such other party or on its behalf and notwithstanding that any Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender may have had notice or knowledge of any Default or incorrect representation or warranty at the time any credit is extended hereunder, and shall continue in full force and effect as long as the principal of or any accrued interest on any Loan or any fee or any other amount payable under this Agreement is outstanding and unpaid or any Letter of Credit is outstanding and so long as the Commitments have not expired or terminated.  The provisions of Sections 2.15, 2.16, 2.17 and 9.03 and Article VIII shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of the Loans, the expiration or termination of the Letters of Credit and the Commitments or the termination of this Agreement or any provision hereof.
 
SECTION 9.06.  Counterparts; Integration; Effectiveness.  This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto on different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract.  This Agreement, the Guarantee Agreement and any separate letter agreements with respect to fees payable to the Administrative

SECTION 9.07.  Severability.  Any provision of this Agreement held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability without affecting the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof; and the invalidity of a particular provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate such provision in any other jurisdiction.
 
SECTION 9.08.  Right of Setoff.  If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, each Lender and each of its Affiliates is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) at any time held and other obligations at any time owing by such Lender or Affiliate to or for the credit or the account of the Company or any Subsidiary Borrower against any of and all the obligations of the Company or such Subsidiary Borrower now or hereafter existing under this Agreement held by such Lender, irrespective of whether or not such Lender shall have made any demand under this Agreement, but only to the extent such obligations are then due and payable.  The rights of each Lender under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of setoff) which such Lender may have.
 
SECTION 9.09.  Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process.  (a)  This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the law of the State of New York.

(c) Each of the Company and the Subsidiary Borrowers hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent it may legally and effectively do so, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document in any court referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section.  Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court.
 
(d) Each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 9.01.  Nothing in this Agreement or any other Loan Document will affect the right of any party to this Agreement to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.

this paragraph), (d) to any other party to this Agreement, (e) in connection with the exercise of any remedies hereunder or any suit, action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document or the enforcement of rights hereunder or thereunder, (f) subject to an agreement containing provisions substantially the same as those of this Section, to (i) any assignee of or Participant in, or any prospective assignee of or Participant in, any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement or (ii) any actual or prospective counterparty (or its advisors) to any swap or derivative transaction relating to the Company and its obligations, (g) with the consent of the Company or (h) to the extent such Information (i) becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section or (ii) becomes available to any Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender on a nonconfidential basis from a source other than the Company or any Subsidiary Borrower.  For the purposes of this Section, “Information” means all information received from the Company or any Subsidiary Borrower relating to the Company, any Subsidiary Borrower or its business, other than any such information that is available to any Agent, any Issuing Bank or any Lender on a nonconfidential basis prior to disclosure by the Company or any Subsidiary Borrower.  Any Person required to maintain the confidentiality of Information as provided in this Section shall be considered to have complied with its obligation to do so if such Person has exercised the same degree of care to maintain the confidentiality of such Information as such Person would accord to its own confidential information.  If any Lender receives any subpoena or similar legal process referred to in clause (c) above, such Lender will endeavor, to the extent practicable, to notify the Company and afford the Company an opportunity to challenge the same before disclosing any confidential Information pursuant thereto.
 
SECTION 9.13.  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 which are treated as interest on such Loan under applicable law (collectively the “Charges”), shall exceed the maximum lawful rate (the “Maximum Rate”) which may be contracted for, charged, taken, received or reserved by 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 and, to the extent lawful, the interest and Charges that would have been payable in respect of such Loan but were not payable 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 Maximum Rate therefor) until such cumulated amount, together with interest thereon at the Federal Funds Effective Rate to the date of repayment, shall have been received by such Lender.
 
SECTION 9.14.  Judgment Currency.  If for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court it is necessary to convert a sum due from any Borrower hereunder in the currency expressed to be payable herein (the “Specified Currency”) into another currency, the parties hereto agree, to the fullest extent that they may effectively do so, that the rate of exchange used shall be that at which in accordance with normal banking procedures the Administrative Agent could purchase the Specified Currency with such other currency at the Administrative Agent’s New York office on the Business Day preceding that on which final judgment is given.  The obligations of each Borrower in
 
 
 
 
[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]
 
 

 
92
 
respect of any sum due to any Lender or any Agent hereunder shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency other than the Specified Currency, be discharged only to the extent that on the Business Day following receipt by such Lender or such Agent (as the case may be) of any sum adjudged to be so due in such other currency such Lender or such Agent (as the case may be) may in accordance with normal banking procedures purchase the Specified Currency with such other currency; if the amount of the Specified Currency so purchased is less than the sum originally due to such Lender or such Agent, as the case may be, in the Specified Currency, the applicable Borrower agrees, to the fullest extent that it may effectively do so, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify such Lender or such Agent, as the case may be, against such loss.
 
SECTION 9.15.  Existing Credit Agreement; Effectiveness of Amendment and Restatement.  Until this Agreement becomes effective in accordance with the terms of Section 4.01, the Existing Credit Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be affected hereby.  After the Effective Date, the provisions of the Existing Credit Agreement shall be superseded by the provisions hereof.  The parties hereto agree to waive any notices required under Section 2.09(c) of the Existing Credit Agreement in connection with the effectiveness of this Agreement.
 
SECTION 9.16.  USA Patriot Act.  Each Lender hereby notifies the Borrowers that pursuant to the requirements of the USA Patriot Act (Title III of Pub. L. 107-56 (signed into law October 26, 2001)), (the “Act”), it is required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies the Company and each Subsidiary Borrower, which information includes the name and address of the Company and each Subsidiary Borrower and other information that will allow such Lender to identify the Company and each Subsidiary Borrower in accordance with the Act.

SCHEDULE 2.15
To Credit Agreement
 
CALCULATION OF THE MANDATORY COST
 
1.  
General
 
(d)  
The Mandatory Cost is to compensate a Lender for the cost of compliance with:
 
 
(i)
the requirements of the Bank of England and/or the Financial Services Authority (or, in either case, any other authority which replaces any of its functions); or
 
 
(ii)
the requirements of the European Central Bank.
 
(e)  
The Mandatory Cost is expressed as a percentage rate per annum.
 
(f)  
The “Mandatory Cost” is the weighted average (weighted in proportion to the percentage share of each Lender in the relevant Loan) of the rates for the Lenders calculated by the Administrative Agent in accordance with this Schedule 2.15 on the first day of an Interest Period (or as soon as possible thereafter).
 
(g)  
The Administrative Agent must distribute each amount of Mandatory Cost among the Lenders on the basis of the rate for each Lender.
 
(h)  
Any determination by the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Schedule 2.15 will be, in the absence of manifest error, conclusive and binding on all the Parties.
 
2.  
For a Lender lending from a Facility Office in the U.K.
 
(a)  
The relevant rate for a Lender lending from a Facility Office in the U.K. is calculated in accordance with the following formula:
 
E x 0.01
  per cent. per annum
300
 
where on the day of application of the formula, E is calculated by the Administrative Agent as being the average of the rates of charge under the Fees Rules supplied by the Reference Banks to the Administrative Agent under paragraph (d) below and expressed in pounds per £1 million.
 
(b)  
For the purposes of this paragraph 2:
 
 
(i)
Facility Office” means, for the purposes of this Schedule 2.15, the office or offices notified by a Lender to the Administrative Agent in writing on or before the date it becomes a Lender (or, following that date, by not less than five Business Days’ written notice) as the office or offices through which it will perform its obligations under this Agreement;
 
 
 
 
[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]
 
 

 
2
 
 
(ii)
Fees Rules” means the then current rules on periodic fees in the FSA Supervision Manual or any other law or regulation as may then be in force for the payment of fees for the acceptance of deposits;
 
 
(iii)
Fee Tariffs” means the fee tariffs specified in the Fees Rules under the activity group A.1 Deposit acceptors (ignoring any minimum fee or zero rated fee required pursuant to the Fees Rules but applying any applicable discount rate);
 
 
(iv)
FSA” means the Financial Services Authority;
 
 
(v)
Participating Member State” means any member state of the European Community that adopts or has adopted the Euro as its lawful currency in accordance with legislation of the European Community relating to Economic and Monetary Union;
 
 
(vi)
Tariff Base” has the meaning given to it in, and will be calculated in accordance with, the Fees Rules.
 
(c)  
Each rate calculated in accordance with the formula is, if necessary, rounded to four decimal places.
 
(d)  
If requested by the Administrative Agent, each Reference Bank must, as soon as practicable after publication by the FSA, supply to the Administrative Agent the rate of charge payable by that Reference Bank to the FSA under the Fees Rules for that financial year of the FSA (calculated by that Reference Bank as being the average of the Fee Tariffs applicable to that Reference Bank for that financial year) and expressed in pounds per £1 million of the Tariff Base of that Reference Bank.
 
(e)  
Each Lender must supply to the Administrative Agent the information required by it to make a calculation of the rate for that Lender.  In particular, each Lender must supply the following information on or prior to the date on which it becomes a Lender:
 
 
(i)
the jurisdiction of its Facility Office; and
 
 
(ii)
any other information that the Administrative Agent reasonably requires for that purpose.
 
Each Lender must promptly notify the Administrative Agent of any change to the information supplied to it under this paragraph.
 
(f)  
The rates of charge of each Reference Bank for the purpose of E above are determined by the Administrative Agent based upon the information supplied to it under paragraphs (d) and (e) above.
 
(g)  
The Administrative Agent has no liability to any Party if its calculation over or under compensates any Lender.  The Administrative Agent is entitled to assume that the
 
 
 
 
[[NYCORP:3024149v15:4452W:11/30/07--12:40 p]]
 
 

 
3
 
  
information provided by any Lender or Reference Bank under this Schedule is true and correct in all respects.
 
3.  
For a Lender lending from a Facility Office in a Participating Member State
 
(a)  
The relevant rate for a Lender lending from a Facility Office in a Participating Member State is the percentage rate per annum notified by that Lender to the Administrative Agent.  This percentage rate per annum must be certified by that Lender in its notice to the Administrative Agent as its reasonable determination of the cost (expressed as a percentage of that Lender’s share in all Loans made from that Facility Office) of complying with the minimum reserve requirements of the European Central Bank in respect of Loans made from that Facility Office.
 
(b)  
If a Lender fails to specify a rate under paragraph (a) above, the Administrative Agent will assume that the Lender has not incurred any such cost.
 
4.  
Changes
 
(a)  
The Administrative Agent may, after consultation with the Company and the Lenders, determine and notify all the Parties of any amendment to this Schedule 2.15 which is required in order to comply with:
 
 
(i)
any change in law or regulation; or
 
 
(ii)
any requirement imposed by the Bank of England, the Financial Services Authority or the European Central Bank (or, in any case, any successor authority).
 
(b)  
If the Administrative Agent, after consultation with the Company, determines that the Mandatory Cost for a Lender lending from a Facility Office in the U.K. can be calculated by reference to a screen, the Administrative Agent may notify all the Parties of any amendment to this Agreement which is required to reflect this.

(v) shall, within 5 Business Days of demand, indemnify each such UK Borrower and the Company for any Tax which such UK Borrower or the Company, as applicable, becomes liable to pay in respect of any payments made to such Treaty Lender arising as a result of any provisional authority issued in respect of such Treaty Lender by the UK HM Revenue & Customs (“HMRC”) under the PTR Scheme being withdrawn, except and only to the extent that such Treaty Lender would, if a deduction had been required in respect of such payments, have been entitled to receive additional amounts under Section 2.17.
 
 
 
 (b)  
Each such UK Borrower and the Company acknowledges that it is fully aware of its contingent obligations under the PTR Scheme and
