Section 1.04Accounting and Other Terms.

(a)Unless otherwise expressly provided herein, each accounting term used herein shall have the meaning given it under GAAP.  For purposes of determining compliance with any incurrence or expenditure tests set forth herein, any amounts so incurred or expended (to the extent incurred or expended in a currency other than Dollars) shall be converted into Dollars on the basis of the exchange rates (as shown on the Bloomberg currency page for such currency or, if the same does not provide such exchange rate, by reference to such other publicly available service for displaying exchange rates as may be reasonably selected by the Administrative Agent or, in the event no such service is selected, on such other basis as is reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent) as in effect on the date of such incurrence or expenditure under any provision of any such Section that has an aggregate Dollar limitation provided for therein (and to the extent the respective incurrence or expenditure test regulates the aggregate amount outstanding at any time and it is expressed in terms of Dollars, all outstanding amounts originally incurred or spent in currencies other than Dollars shall be converted into Dollars on the basis of the exchange rates (as shown on the Bloomberg currency page for such currency or, if the same does not provide such exchange rate, by reference to such other publicly available service for displaying exchange rates as may be reasonably selected by the Administrative Agent or, in the event no such service is selected, on such other basis as is reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent) as in effect on the date of any new incurrence or expenditures made under any provision of any such Section that regulates the Dollar amount outstanding at any time).  Notwithstanding the foregoing, any lease that was treated as an operating lease under GAAP at the time it was entered into that later becomes a capital lease as a result of a change in GAAP during the life of such lease, including any renewals, and any lease entered into before or after the date of this Agreement that would have been considered an operating lease under the provisions of GAAP in effect prior to December 15, 2018, in each case, shall be treated as an operating lease for all purposes under this Agreement.

(b)All terms used in this Agreement which are defined in Article 8 or Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code as in effect from time to time in the State of New York (the “Uniform Commercial Code” or the “UCC”) and which are not otherwise defined herein shall have the same meanings herein as set forth therein, provided that terms used herein which are defined in the Uniform Commercial Code as in effect in the State of New York on the date hereof shall continue to have the same meaning notwithstanding any replacement or amendment of such statute except as any Agent may otherwise determine.

45


items and balance sheet items (whether positive or negative) attributable to the property or assets disposed of shall be excluded in such calculations to the extent relating to such applicable period, subject to adjustments mutually acceptable to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent and (B) Indebtedness that is repaid with the proceeds of such Disposition shall be excluded from such calculations and deemed to have been repaid as of the first day of such applicable period.

Section 1.07Replacement LIBOR.

(a)Benchmark Replacement.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, if a Benchmark Transition Event or an Early Opt-in Election, as applicable, and its related Benchmark Replacement Date have occurred prior to the Reference Time in respect of any setting of the then-current Benchmark, then (x) if a Benchmark Replacement is determined in accordance with clause (1) or (2) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement” for such Benchmark Replacement Date, such Benchmark Replacement will replace such Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Loan Document in respect of such Benchmark setting and subsequent Benchmark settings without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Loan Document and (y) if a Benchmark Replacement is determined in accordance with clause (3) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement” for such Benchmark Replacement Date, such Benchmark Replacement will replace such Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Loan Document in respect of any Benchmark setting at or after 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the tenth (10th) Business Day after the date notice of such Benchmark Replacement is provided to the Lenders and the Borrower without any amendment to this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or further action or consent of the Lenders or the Borrower, so long as the Administrative Agent has not received, by such time, written notice of objection to such Benchmark Replacement from Lenders comprising the Required Lenders or the Borrower.

(b)Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes.  In connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement, the Administrative Agent will have the right to make Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, any amendments implementing

46


such Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement or any other Loan Document.

(c)Notices; Standards for Decisions and Determinations.  The Administrative Agent will promptly notify the Borrower and the Lenders of (i) any occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event or an Early Opt-in Election, as applicable, and its related Benchmark Replacement Date, (ii) the implementation of any Benchmark Replacement, (iii) the effectiveness of any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes, (iv) the removal or reinstatement of any tenor of a Benchmark pursuant to clause (d) below and (v) the commencement or conclusion of any Benchmark Unavailability Period.  Any determination, decision or election that may be made by the Administrative Agent or, if applicable, any Lender (or group of Lenders) pursuant to this Section titled “Replacement LIBOR,” including any determination with respect to a tenor, rate or adjustment or of the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event, circumstance or date and any decision to take or refrain from taking any action or any selection, will be conclusive and binding absent manifest error and may be made in its or their sole discretion and without consent from any other party to this Agreement or any other Loan Document, except, in each case, as expressly required pursuant to this Section titled “Replacement LIBOR.”

(d)Unavailability of Tenor of Benchmark.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, at any time (including in connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement), (i) if the then-current Benchmark is a term rate (including Term SOFR or USD LIBOR) and either (A) any tenor for such Benchmark is not displayed on a screen or other information service that publishes such rate from time to time as selected by the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion or (B) the regulatory supervisor for the administrator of such Benchmark has provided a public statement or publication of information announcing that any tenor for such Benchmark is or will be no longer representative, then the Administrative Agent may modify the definition of “Interest Period” for any Benchmark settings at or after such time to remove such unavailable or non-representative tenor and (ii) if a tenor that was removed pursuant to clause (i) above either (A) is subsequently displayed on a screen or information service for a Benchmark (including a Benchmark Replacement) or (B) is not, or is no longer, subject to an announcement that it is or will no longer be representative for a Benchmark (including a Benchmark Replacement), then the Administrative Agent may modify the definition of “Interest Period” for all Benchmark settings at or after such time to reinstate such previously removed tenor.

(e)Benchmark Unavailability Period.  Upon the Borrower’s receipt of notice of the commencement of a Benchmark Unavailability Period, the Borrower may revoke any request for a borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of LIBOR Rate Loans to be made, converted or continued during any Benchmark Unavailability Period and, failing that, the Borrower will be deemed to have converted any such request into a request for a borrowing of or conversion to Reference Rate Loans.  During any Benchmark Unavailability Period or at any time that a tenor for the then-current Benchmark is not an Available Tenor, the component of the Reference Rate based upon the then-current Benchmark or such tenor for such Benchmark, as applicable, will not be used in any determination of the Reference Rate.

(f)Certain Defined Terms.  As used in this Section titled “Replacement LIBOR”:

47


Available Tenor” means, as of any date of determination and with respect to the then-current Benchmark, as applicable, any tenor for such Benchmark or payment period for interest calculated with reference to such Benchmark, as applicable, that is or may be used for determining the length of an Interest Period pursuant to this Agreement as of such date and not including, for the avoidance of doubt, any tenor for such Benchmark that is then-removed from the definition of “Interest Period” pursuant to clause (d) of this Section titled “Replacement LIBOR.”

Benchmark” means, initially, USD LIBOR; provided that if a Benchmark Transition Event or an Early Opt-in Election, as applicable, and its related Benchmark Replacement Date have occurred with respect to USD LIBOR or the then-current Benchmark, then “Benchmark” means the applicable Benchmark Replacement to the extent that such Benchmark Replacement has replaced such prior benchmark rate pursuant to clause (a) of this Section titled “Replacement LIBOR.”

Benchmark Replacement” means, for any Available Tenor, the first alternative set forth in the order below that can be determined by the Administrative Agent for the applicable Benchmark Replacement Date:

(1) the sum of: (a) Term SOFR and (b) the related Benchmark Replacement Adjustment;

(2) the sum of: (a) Daily Simple SOFR and (b) the related Benchmark Replacement Adjustment;

(3) the sum of: (a) the alternate benchmark rate that has been selected by the Administrative Agent as the replacement for the then-current Benchmark for the applicable Corresponding Tenor giving due consideration to (i) any selection or recommendation of a replacement benchmark rate or the mechanism for determining such a rate by the Relevant Governmental Body or (ii) any evolving or then-prevailing market convention for determining a benchmark rate as a replacement for the then-current Benchmark for U.S. dollar-denominated syndicated or bilateral credit facilities at such time and (b) the related Benchmark Replacement Adjustment;

provided that, in the case of clause (1), such Unadjusted Benchmark Replacement is displayed on a screen or other information service that publishes such rate from time to time as selected by the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion.  If the Benchmark Replacement as determined pursuant to clause (1), (2) or (3) above would be less than the Floor, the Benchmark Replacement will be deemed to be the Floor for the purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

Benchmark Replacement Adjustment” means, with respect to any replacement of the then-current Benchmark with an Unadjusted Benchmark Replacement for any applicable Interest Period and Available Tenor for any setting of such Unadjusted Benchmark Replacement:

(1) for purposes of clauses (1) and (2) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement,” the first alternative set forth in the order below that can be determined by the Administrative Agent:

(a) the spread adjustment, or method for calculating or determining such spread adjustment, (which may be a positive or negative value or zero) as of the Reference Time such Benchmark Replacement is first set for such Interest Period that has been selected or recommended by the

48


Relevant Governmental Body for the replacement of such Benchmark with the applicable Unadjusted Benchmark Replacement for the applicable Corresponding Tenor;

(b) the spread adjustment (which may be a positive or negative value or zero) as of the Reference Time such Benchmark Replacement is first set for such Interest Period that would apply to the fallback rate for a derivative transaction referencing the ISDA Definitions to be effective upon an index cessation event with respect to such Benchmark for the applicable Corresponding Tenor; and

(2) for purposes of clause (3) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement,” the spread adjustment, or method for calculating or determining such spread adjustment, (which may be a positive or negative value or zero) that has been selected by the Administrative Agent for the applicable Corresponding Tenor giving due consideration to (i) any selection or recommendation of a spread adjustment, or method for calculating or determining such spread adjustment, for the replacement of such Benchmark with the applicable Unadjusted Benchmark Replacement by the Relevant Governmental Body on the applicable Benchmark Replacement Date or (ii) any evolving or then-prevailing market convention for determining a spread adjustment, or method for calculating or determining such spread adjustment, for the replacement of such Benchmark with the applicable Unadjusted Benchmark Replacement for U.S. dollar-denominated syndicated or bilateral credit facilities;

provided that, in the case of clause (1) above, such adjustment is displayed on a screen or other information service that publishes such Benchmark Replacement Adjustment from time to time as selected by the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion.

Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes” means, with respect to any Benchmark Replacement, any technical, administrative or operational changes (including changes to the definition of “Reference Rate,” the definition of “Business Day,” the definition of “Interest Period,” timing and frequency of determining rates and making payments of interest, timing of borrowing requests or prepayment, conversion or continuation notices, length of lookback periods, the applicability of breakage provisions, and other technical, administrative or operational matters) that the Administrative Agent decides may be appropriate to reflect the adoption and implementation of such Benchmark Replacement and to permit the administration thereof by the Administrative Agent in a manner substantially consistent with market practice (or, if the Administrative Agent decides that adoption of any portion of such market practice is not administratively feasible or if the Administrative Agent determines that no market practice for the administration of such Benchmark Replacement exists, in such other manner of administration as the Administrative Agent decides is reasonably necessary in connection with the administration of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents).

Benchmark Replacement Date” means the earliest to occur of the following events with respect to the then-current Benchmark:

(1) in the case of clause (1) or (2) of the definition of “Benchmark Transition Event,” the later of (a) the date of the public statement or publication of information referenced therein and (b) the date on which the administrator of such Benchmark (or the published component used in the

49


calculation thereof) permanently or indefinitely ceases to provide all Available Tenors of such Benchmark (or such component thereof);

(2) in the case of clause (3) of the definition of “Benchmark Transition Event,” the date of the public statement or publication of information referenced therein; or

(3) in the case of an Early Opt-in Election, the sixth (6th) Business Day after the date notice of such Early Opt-in Election is provided to the Lenders and the Borrower, so long as the Administrative Agent has not received, by 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the fifth (5th) Business Day after the date notice of such Early Opt-in Election is provided to the Lenders and the Borrower, written notice of objection to such Early Opt-in Election from Lenders comprising the Required Lenders or the Borrower.

For the avoidance of doubt, (i) if the event giving rise to the Benchmark Replacement Date occurs on the same day as, but earlier than, the Reference Time in respect of any determination, the Benchmark Replacement Date will be deemed to have occurred prior to the Reference Time for such determination and (ii) the “Benchmark Replacement Date” will be deemed to have occurred in the case of clause (1) or (2) with respect to any Benchmark upon the occurrence of the applicable event or events set forth therein with respect to all then-current Available Tenors of such Benchmark (or the published component used in the calculation thereof).

Benchmark Transition Event” means the occurrence of one or more of the following events with respect to the then-current Benchmark:

(1) a public statement or publication of information by or on behalf of the administrator of such Benchmark (or the published component used in the calculation thereof) announcing that such administrator has ceased or will cease to provide all Available Tenors of such Benchmark (or such component thereof), permanently or indefinitely, provided that, at the time of such statement or publication, there is no successor administrator that will continue to provide any Available Tenor of such Benchmark (or such component thereof);

(2) a public statement or publication of information by the regulatory supervisor for the administrator of such Benchmark (or the published component used in the calculation thereof), the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, an insolvency official with jurisdiction over the administrator for such Benchmark (or such component), a resolution authority with jurisdiction over the administrator for such Benchmark (or such component) or a court or an entity with similar insolvency or resolution authority over the administrator for such Benchmark (or such component), which states that the administrator of such Benchmark (or such component) has ceased or will cease to provide all Available Tenors of such Benchmark (or such component thereof) permanently or indefinitely, provided that, at the time of such statement or publication, there is no successor administrator that will continue to provide any Available Tenor of such Benchmark (or such component thereof); or

(3) a public statement or publication of information by the regulatory supervisor for the administrator of such Benchmark (or the published component used in the calculation thereof) announcing that all Available Tenors of such Benchmark (or such component thereof) are no longer representative.

50


For the avoidance of doubt, a “Benchmark Transition Event” will be deemed to have occurred with respect to any Benchmark if a public statement or publication of information set forth above has occurred with respect to each then-current Available Tenor of such Benchmark (or the published component used in the calculation thereof).

Benchmark Unavailability Period” means the period (if any) (x) beginning at the time that a Benchmark Replacement Date pursuant to clauses (1) or (2) of that definition has occurred if, at such time, no Benchmark Replacement has replaced the then-current Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Loan Document in accordance with this Section titled “Replacement LIBOR” and (y) ending at the time that a Benchmark Replacement has replaced the then-current Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Loan Document in accordance with this Section titled “Replacement LIBOR.”

Corresponding Tenor” with respect to any Available Tenor means, as applicable, either a tenor (including overnight) or an interest payment period having approximately the same length (disregarding business day adjustment) as such Available Tenor.

(2) the election by the Administrative Agent to trigger a fallback from USD LIBOR and the provision by the Administrative Agent of written notice of such election to the Lenders and the Borrower.

Floor” means the benchmark rate floor, if any, provided in this Agreement initially (as of the execution of this Agreement, the modification, amendment or renewal of this Agreement or otherwise) with respect to USD LIBOR.

ISDA Definitions” means the 2006 ISDA Definitions published by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. or any successor thereto, as amended or supplemented from time to time, or any successor definitional booklet for interest rate derivatives published from time to time by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. or such successor thereto.

Reference Time” with respect to any setting of the then-current Benchmark means (1) if such Benchmark is USD LIBOR, 11:00 a.m. (London time) on the day that is two London banking days preceding the date of such setting, and (2) if such Benchmark is not USD LIBOR, the time determined by the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion.

ARTICLE II

THE REVOLVING LOANS

Section 2.01Commitments.  Subject to the terms and conditions and relying upon the representations and warranties herein set forth:

(a)each Lender agrees, severally and not jointly with the other Lenders, to make Revolving Loans to the Borrower at any time and from time to time during the term of this Agreement, in an aggregate principal amount of Revolving Loans at any time outstanding not to exceed the amount of such Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment;

(b)Notwithstanding the foregoing, the aggregate principal amount of Revolving Loans outstanding at any time to the Borrower shall not exceed the difference between (x) the Total Revolving Credit Commitment and (y) the aggregate Letter of Credit Obligations.  The Revolving Credit Commitment of each Lender shall automatically and permanently be reduced to zero on the Final Maturity Date.  Within the foregoing limits, the Borrower may borrow, repay and reborrow, the Revolving Loans after the Effective Date and prior to the Final Maturity Date, subject to the terms, provisions and limitations set forth herein.

Section 2.02Making the Revolving Loans.  (a) The Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent prior telephonic notice (immediately confirmed in writing, in substantially the form of Exhibit C hereto (a “Notice of Borrowing”)), not later than 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) on the date which is three (3) Business Days prior to the date of the proposed Revolving Loan (or such shorter period as the Administrative Agent is willing to accommodate from time to

52


time, but in no event later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) on the borrowing date of the proposed Revolving Loan).  Such Notice of Borrowing shall specify (i) the principal amount of the proposed Revolving Loans, (ii) whether the Revolving Loan is requested to be a Reference Rate Loan or a LIBOR Rate Loan and, in the case of a LIBOR Rate Loan, the initial Interest Period with respect thereto, and (iii) the proposed borrowing date, which must be a Business Day, and if Borrower revokes any such Notice of Borrowing with respect to a LIBOR Rate Loan it shall be liable for Lender’s costs in accordance with Section 2.08.  The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Lenders of the receipt of any Notice of Borrowing.  The Administrative Agent and the Lenders may act without liability upon the basis of written, telecopied or telephonic notice believed by the Administrative Agent in good faith to be from the Borrower (or from any Authorized Officer thereof designated in writing purportedly from the Borrower to the Administrative Agent).  The Borrower hereby waives the right to dispute the Administrative Agent’s record of the terms of any such telephonic Notice of Borrowing.  The Administrative Agent and each Lender shall be entitled to rely conclusively on any Authorized Officer’s authority to request a Revolving Loan on behalf of the Borrower until the Administrative Agent receives written notice to the contrary.  The Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall have no duty to verify the authenticity of the signature appearing on any written Notice of Borrowing.

(b)The Borrower shall be bound to make a borrowing in accordance with the Notice of Borrowing pursuant to this Section 2.02.  Each Revolving Loan shall be made in a minimum amount of up to $100,000 and shall be in an integral multiple of $50,000.

(c)(i)Except as otherwise provided in this Section 2.02(b), all Revolving Loans under this Agreement shall be made by the Lenders simultaneously and proportionately to their Pro Rata Shares of the Total Revolving Credit Commitment, it being understood that no Lender shall be responsible for any default by any other Lender in that other Lender’s obligations to make a Revolving Loan requested hereunder, nor shall the applicable Commitment of any Lender be increased or decreased as a result of the default by any other Lender in that other Lender’s obligation to make a Revolving Loan requested hereunder, and each Lender shall be obligated to make the Revolving Loans required to be made by it by the terms of this Agreement regardless of the failure by any other Lender to do so.

(ii)Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, and in order to reduce the number of fund transfers among the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders, the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders agree that the Administrative Agent may (but shall not be obligated to), and the Borrower and the Lenders hereby irrevocably authorize the Administrative Agent to, fund, on behalf of the Lenders, subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 5.02, Revolving Loans pursuant to Section 2.01, subject to the procedures for settlement set forth in Section 2.02(d); provided, however, that the Administrative Agent shall in no event fund any such Revolving Loans if the Administrative Agent shall have received written notice from the Required Lenders on the Business Day prior to the date of the proposed Revolving Loan that one or more of the conditions precedent contained in Section 5.02 will not be satisfied at the time of the proposed Revolving Loan.  If the Borrower gives a Notice of Borrowing requesting a Revolving Loan and the Administrative Agent elects not to fund such Revolving Loan on behalf of the Lenders, then promptly after receipt of the Notice of Borrowing requesting such Revolving Loan, the Administrative Agent shall notify each

53


Lender of the specifics of the requested Revolving Loan and that it will not fund the requested Revolving Loan on behalf of the Lenders.  If the Administrative Agent notifies the Lenders that it will not fund a requested Revolving Loan on behalf of the Lenders, each Lender shall make its Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Loan available to the Administrative Agent, in immediately available funds, in the Administrative Agent’s Account no later than 3:00 p.m. (New York City time) (provided that the Administrative Agent requests payment from such Lender not later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time)) on the date of the proposed Revolving Loan.  The Administrative Agent will make the proceeds of such Revolving Loans available to the Borrower on the day of the proposed Revolving Loan by causing an amount, in immediately available funds, equal to the proceeds of all such Revolving Loans received by the Administrative Agent in the Administrative Agent’s Account or the amount funded by the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Lenders to be deposited in an account designated by the Borrower.

(iii)If the Administrative Agent has notified the Lenders that the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Lenders, will not fund a particular Revolving Loan pursuant to Section 2.02(c)(ii), the Administrative Agent may assume that each such Lender has made such amount available to the Administrative Agent on such day and the Administrative Agent, in its sole discretion, may, but shall not be obligated to, cause a corresponding amount to be made available to the Borrower on such day.  If the Administrative Agent makes such corresponding amount available to the Borrower and such corresponding amount is not in fact made available to the Administrative Agent by any such Lender, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover such corresponding amount on demand from such Lender together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such payment was due until the date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent, at the Federal Funds Effective Rate for two (2) Business Days and thereafter at the Reference Rate.  During the period in which such Lender has not paid such corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement or any other Loan Document, the amount so advanced by the Administrative Agent to the Borrower shall, for all purposes hereof, be a Revolving Loan made by the Administrative Agent for its own account.  Upon any such failure by a Lender to pay the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent shall promptly thereafter notify the Borrower of such failure and the Borrower shall immediately pay such corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent for its own account.

(iv)Nothing in this Section 2.02(c) shall be deemed to relieve any Lender from its obligations to fulfill its Revolving Credit Commitment hereunder or to prejudice any rights that the Administrative Agent or the Borrower may have against any Lender as a result of any default by such Lender hereunder.

(d)(i)With respect to all periods for which the Administrative Agent has funded Revolving Loans pursuant to Section 2.02(c), on Friday of each week, or if the applicable Friday is not a Business Day, then on the following Business Day, or such shorter period as the Administrative Agent may from time to time select (any such week or shorter period being herein called a “Settlement Period”), the Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender of the unpaid principal amount of the Revolving Loans outstanding as of the last day of each such Settlement Period.  In the event that such amount is greater than the unpaid principal amount of the Revolving

54


Loans outstanding on the last day of the Settlement Period immediately preceding such Settlement Period (or, if there has been no preceding Settlement Period, the amount of the Revolving Loans made on the date of such Lender’s initial funding), each Lender shall promptly (and in any event not later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) if the Administrative Agent requests payment from such Lender not later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) on such day) make available to the Administrative Agent its Pro Rata Share of the difference in immediately available funds.  In the event that such amount is less than such unpaid principal amount, the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay over to each Lender its Pro Rata Share of the difference in immediately available funds.  In addition, if the Administrative Agent shall so request at any time when a Default or an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, or any other event shall have occurred as a result of which the Administrative Agent shall determine that it is desirable to present claims against the Borrower for repayment, each Lender shall promptly remit to the Administrative Agent or, as the case may be, the Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to each Lender, sufficient funds to adjust the interests of the Lenders in the then outstanding Revolving Loans to such an extent that, after giving effect to such adjustment, each such Lender’s interest in the then outstanding Revolving Loans will be equal to its Pro Rata Share thereof.  The obligations of the Administrative Agent and each Lender under this Section 2.02(d) shall be absolute and unconditional.  Each Lender shall only be entitled to receive interest on its Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Loans which have been funded by such Lender.

(ii)In the event that any Lender fails to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.02(d)(i), the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover such corresponding amount on demand from such Lender together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such payment was due until the date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent, at the Federal Funds Effective Rate for two (2) Business Days and thereafter at the Reference Rate.  During the period in which such Lender has not paid such corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement or any other Loan Document, the amount so advanced by the Administrative Agent to the Borrower shall, for all purposes hereof, be a Revolving Loan made by the Administrative Agent for its own account.  Upon any such failure by a Lender to pay the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent shall promptly thereafter notify the Borrower of such failure and the Borrower shall immediately pay such corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent for its own account.  Nothing in this Section 2.02(d)(ii) shall be deemed to relieve any Lender from its obligation to fulfill its Revolving Credit Commitment hereunder or to prejudice any rights that the Administrative Agent or the Borrower may have against any Lender as a result of any default by such Lender hereunder.

Section 2.03Repayment of Revolving Loans; Evidence of Debt.

(a)The outstanding principal of all Revolving Loans shall be due and payable on the Final Maturity Date or, if earlier, on the date on which they are declared due and payable pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

(b)Each Lender shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice an account or accounts evidencing the Indebtedness of the Borrower to such Lender resulting from each

55


Revolving 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 Administrative Agent shall maintain accounts in which it shall record (i) the amount of each Revolving Loan made hereunder, (ii) the amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from the Borrower to each Lender hereunder and (iii) the amount of any sum received by the Administrative Agent hereunder for the account of the Lenders and each Lender’s share thereof.

(d)The entries made in the accounts maintained pursuant to Section 2.03(b) or Section 2.03(c) shall be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations recorded therein; provided that (i) the failure of any Lender or the Administrative Agent to maintain such accounts or any error therein shall not in any manner affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay the Revolving Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and (ii) in the event of any conflict between the entries made in the accounts maintained pursuant to Section 2.03(b) and the accounts maintained pursuant to Section 2.03(c), the accounts maintained pursuant to Section 2.03(c) shall govern and control.

(e)Any Lender may request that Revolving Loans made by it be evidenced by a Revolving Loan Note.  In such event, the Borrower shall execute and deliver to such Lender a Revolving Loan Note.  Thereafter, the Revolving Loans evidenced by such Revolving Loan Note and interest thereon shall at all times (including after assignment pursuant to Section 12.07) be represented by one or more Revolving Loan Notes payable to such payee and its registered assigns.

Section 2.04Interest.

(a)Revolving Loans.  Subject to the terms of this Agreement, at the option of the Borrower, each Revolving Loan shall be either a Reference Rate Loan or a LIBOR Rate Loan.  Each Revolving Loan that is a Reference Rate Loan shall bear interest on the principal amount thereof from time to time outstanding, from the date of such Revolving Loan until repaid, at a rate per annum equal to the Reference Rate plus the Applicable Margin.  Each Revolving Loan that is a LIBOR Rate Loan shall bear interest on the principal amount thereof from time to time outstanding, from the date of such Revolving Loan until repaid, at a rate per annum equal to the LIBOR Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Revolving Loan plus the Applicable Margin.

(b)Default Interest.  To the extent permitted by law and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, at the election of the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders, as applicable, (i) the principal of, and all accrued and unpaid interest on, all Revolving Loans, fees, indemnities or any other Obligations of the Loan Parties under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, shall bear interest, from the date such Event of Default occurred until the date such Event of Default is cured or waived in writing in accordance herewith, at a rate per annum equal at all times to the Post-Default Rate, and (ii) the Letter of Credit Fee shall be increased by 2.0 percentage points above the per annum rate otherwise applicable hereunder; provided that the foregoing shall apply automatically, without any election of the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders, in the case of an Event of Default under Section 9.01(f) or Section 9.01(g).

56


(c)Interest Payment.  Interest on each Revolving Loan shall be payable (i) in the case of a Reference Rate Loan, quarterly, in arrears, on the last day of each calendar quarter, with the first payment date being March 31, 2021, (ii) in the case of a LIBOR Rate Loan, on the last day of each Interest Period applicable to such Revolving Loan and (iii) in the case of each Revolving Loan, at maturity (whether upon demand, by acceleration or otherwise).  Interest at the Post-Default Rate shall be payable on demand.  The Borrower hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to, and the Administrative Agent may, from time to time, charge the Loan Account pursuant to Section 4.01 with the amount of any interest payment due with respect to Revolving Loans hereunder.

(d)General.  All interest shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days for the actual number of days, including the first day but excluding the last day, elapsed.

Section 2.05Reduction of Commitment; Prepayment of Revolving Loans.

(a)Reduction of Revolving Credit Commitments.  The Total Revolving Credit Commitment shall terminate on the Final Maturity Date.  The Borrower may reduce the Total Revolving Credit Commitment to an amount (which may be zero) not less than the sum of (A) the aggregate unpaid principal amount of all Revolving Loans then outstanding, (B) the aggregate principal amount of all Revolving Loans not yet made as to which a Notice of Borrowing has been given by the Borrower under Section 2.02, (C) the Letter of Credit Obligations at such time and (D) the stated amount of all Letters of Credit not yet issued as to which a request has been made and not withdrawn.  Each such reduction shall be (1) in an amount which is an integral multiple of $500,000 (or by the full amount of the Total Revolving Credit Commitment in effect immediately prior to such reduction if such amount at that time is less than $500,000), (2) made by providing not less than five (5) Business Days’ prior written notice to the Administrative Agent and (3) irrevocable (except if such notice states that it is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities or the receipt of the proceeds from the issuance of other Indebtedness, in which case such notice may be revoked by the Borrower if such condition is not satisfied).  Once reduced, the Total Revolving Credit Commitment may not be increased.  Each such reduction of the Total Revolving Credit Commitment shall reduce the Revolving Credit Commitment of each Lender proportionately in accordance with its Pro Rata Share thereof.

(b)Optional Prepayment.

(i)Termination of Agreement.  The Borrower may, upon at least five (5) Business Days prior written notice to the Administrative Agent, terminate this Agreement by paying to the Administrative Agent, in cash, the Obligations (including either (A) providing Letter of Credit Collateralization or (B) causing the original Letters of Credit to be returned to the Administrative Agent) in full.  If the Borrower has sent a notice of termination pursuant to this Section 2.05(b)(i), then the Lenders’ Commitments to extend credit hereunder shall terminate and the Borrower shall be obligated to repay the Obligations (including either (A) providing Letter of Credit Collateralization or (B) causing the original Letters of Credit to be returned to the Administrative Agent) in full in cash on the date set forth as the date of termination of this Agreement in such notice; provided, that, if such notice states that it is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other

57


credit facilities or the receipt of the proceeds from the issuance of other Indebtedness, such notice of prepayment may be revoked by the Borrower if such condition is not satisfied.

(c)Mandatory Prepayment.

(i)Subject to Section 3.4 of the Collateral Trust Agreement, within one (1) Business Day following any Disposition (excluding Dispositions which qualify as Permitted Dispositions) by the Borrower or its Restricted Subsidiaries, the Borrower shall prepay the outstanding principal amount of the Revolving Loans in accordance with Section 2.05(e) in an amount equal to 100% of the Net Cash Proceeds received by such Person in connection with such Disposition to the extent that the aggregate amount of Net Cash Proceeds received by the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries (and not paid to the Administrative Agent as a prepayment of the Revolving Loans, including after giving effect to Section 2.05(c)(iv)) shall exceed for all such Dispositions $15,000,000 during the term of this Agreement (to the extent of such excess).  Nothing contained in this Section 2.05(c)(i) shall permit the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to make a Disposition of any property other than in accordance with Section 7.02(e).

(ii)Within one (1) Business Day following the issuance or incurrence by the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries of any Indebtedness (other than Permitted Debt), the Borrower shall prepay the outstanding amount of the Revolving Loans in accordance with Section 2.05(e) in an amount equal to 100% of the Net Cash Proceeds received by such Person in connection therewith.  The provisions of this Section 2.05(c)(ii) shall not be deemed to be implied consent to any such issuance or incurrence otherwise prohibited by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

(iii)Subject to Section 3.4 of the Collateral Trust Agreement, within one (1) Business Day following the receipt by the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries of any Extraordinary Receipts, the Borrower shall prepay the outstanding principal of the Revolving Loans in accordance with Section 2.05(e) in an amount equal to 100% of the Net Cash Proceeds received by such Person in connection therewith to the extent that the aggregate amount of Net Cash Proceeds received by the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries (and not paid to the Administrative Agent as a prepayment of the Revolving Loans, including after giving effect to Section 2.05(c)(iv)) shall exceed for all Extraordinary Receipts $15,000,000 during the term of this Agreement (to the extent of such excess).

(iv)Notwithstanding the foregoing, with respect to Net Cash Proceeds received by the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries in connection with any Disposition or the receipt of Extraordinary Receipts that are required to be used to prepay the Obligations pursuant to Section 2.05(c)(i) or Section 2.05(c)(iii), as applicable, such Net Cash Proceeds shall not be required to be so used to prepay the Obligations to the extent that such Net Cash Proceeds are used to replace, repair or restore properties or assets, or otherwise reinvest in assets, used or useful in such Person’s business, provided that, (A) no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing on the date such Person receives such Net Cash Proceeds, (B) the Borrower delivers a certificate to the Administrative Agent within 10 days after such Disposition or loss, destruction or taking, as the case may

58


be, stating that such Net Cash Proceeds shall be used to replace, repair or restore properties or assets, or otherwise reinvest in assets, used or useful in such Person’s business within a period specified in such certificate not to exceed 365 days after the date of receipt of such Net Cash Proceeds (which period may be extended by an additional 90 days if the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries have entered into a commitment within such 365 days to reinvest such Net Cash Proceeds) (which certificate shall set forth estimates of the Net Cash Proceeds to be so expended), (C) such Net Cash Proceeds are deposited in an account subject to a Control Agreement, and (D) upon the earlier of (1) the expiration of the period specified in the relevant certificate furnished to the Administrative Agent pursuant to clause (B) above or (2) at the election of the Administrative Agent, after the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, such Net Cash Proceeds, if not theretofore so used, shall be used to prepay the Obligations in accordance with Section 2.05(e).

(v)If at any time after the Effective Date, the sum of the aggregate principal amount of outstanding Revolving Loans plus outstanding Letter of Credit Obligations shall exceed the Total Revolving Credit Commitment, the Borrower shall immediately prepay the Revolving Loans and (after all Revolving Loans have been repaid) cash collateralize the Letter of Credit Obligations in an amount sufficient to eliminate such excess.

(d)Prepayments of Other First Lien Indebtedness.  Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of Section 2.05(c)(i), (ii), (iii), or otherwise, any Net Cash Proceeds otherwise required to be applied to prepay the Revolving Loans may, at Borrower’s option, be applied to prepay the principal amount of Other First Lien Indebtedness only to (and not in excess of) the extent to which a mandatory prepayment in respect of such Net Cash Proceeds is required under the terms of such Other First Lien Indebtedness (with any remaining Net Cash Proceeds applied to prepay outstanding Revolving Loans in accordance with the terms hereof), unless such application would result in the holders of Other First Lien Indebtedness receiving in excess of their pro rata share (determined on the basis of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of Revolving Loans and Other First Lien Indebtedness at such time) of such Net Cash Proceeds relative to Lenders, in which case such Net Cash Proceeds may only be applied to prepay the principal amount of Other First Lien Indebtedness on a pro rata basis with outstanding Revolving Loans.  To the extent the holders of Other First Lien Indebtedness decline to have such indebtedness repurchased, repaid or prepaid with any such Net Cash Proceeds, the declined amount of such Net Cash Proceeds shall promptly (and, in any event, within five (5) Business Days after the date of such rejection) be applied to prepay Revolving Loans in accordance with the terms hereof (to the extent such Net Cash Proceeds would otherwise have been required to be applied if such Other First Lien Indebtedness was not then outstanding).  Any such application to Other First Lien Indebtedness shall reduce any prepayments otherwise required hereunder by an equivalent amount.

(e)Application of Payments.  Subject to the Collateral Trust Agreement, each prepayment pursuant to Section 2.05(c) shall be applied, first, to the Revolving Loans (with a corresponding permanent reduction in the Revolving Credit Commitments), until paid in full, and second, to cash collateralize the Letters of Credit in an amount equal to one hundred and five percent (105%) of the aggregate undrawn amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit (with a corresponding permanent reduction in the Revolving Credit Commitments).  Notwithstanding the foregoing, after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, subject to the

59


provisions of the Collateral Trust Agreement, if the Administrative Agent has elected, or has been directed by the Required Lenders, to apply payments in respect of any Obligations in accordance with Section 4.03(b), prepayments required under Section 2.05(c) shall be applied in the manner set forth in Section 4.03(b).

(f)Interest and Fees.  Any prepayment made pursuant to this Section 2.05 shall be accompanied by (i) accrued interest on the principal amount being prepaid to the date of prepayment, (ii) any Funding Losses payable pursuant to Section 2.08, and (iii) if such prepayment would reduce the amount of the outstanding Revolving Loans to zero at a time when the Total Revolving Credit Commitment has been terminated, such prepayment shall be accompanied by the payment of all fees accrued to such date pursuant to Section 2.06.

(g)Cumulative Prepayments.  Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Section 2.05, payments with respect to any subsection of this Section 2.05 are in addition to payments made or required to be made under any other subsection of this Section 2.05.

Section 2.06Fees.

(a)Unused Line Fee.  From and after the Effective Date and until the Final Maturity Date, the Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders, in accordance with their Pro Rata Shares, quarterly in arrears on the last day of each quarter, with the first payment date being March 31, 2021, an unused line fee (the “Unused Line Fee”), which shall accrue at the rate per annum of one half of one percent (0.50%) on the excess, if any, of the Total Revolving Credit Commitment over the sum of the average daily principal amount of all Revolving Loans and Letter of Credit Obligations outstanding from time to time during the preceding quarter.

(b)Audit and Collateral Monitoring Fees.  The Borrower acknowledges that pursuant to Section 7.01(f), representatives of the Agents may visit any or all of the Loan Parties and/or conduct inspections, audits, valuations, appraisals, and/or examinations of any or all of the Loan Parties at any time and from time to time.  The Borrower agrees to pay the cost of all visits, inspections, audits, valuations, appraisals and/or examinations conducted by a third party on behalf of the Agents; provided, that so long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Borrower shall not be obligated to reimburse the Agents for more than one (1) such inspection, audit, valuation, appraisal, and/or examination in the aggregate during any calendar year.

(c)Upfront Fee.  The Borrower agrees to pay to each Lender, on the Effective Date, an upfront fee equal to (i) such Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment, multiplied by (ii) 0.75%.

(d)Fee Letter.  On the Effective Date, the Borrower shall pay the fees set forth in any fee letter executed by the Borrower and the Arranger, the Administrative Agent and/or any Lender.

Section 2.07LIBOR Option.

(a)The Borrower may, at any time and from time to time, so long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, elect to have interest on all or a portion of the

60


Revolving Loans be charged at a rate of interest based upon the LIBOR Rate (the “LIBOR Option”) by notifying the Administrative Agent prior to 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) at least three (3) Business Days prior to (i) the proposed borrowing date of a Revolving Loan (as provided in Section 2.02), (ii) in the case of the conversion of a Reference Rate Loan to a LIBOR Rate Loan, the commencement of the proposed Interest Period or (iii) in the case of the continuation of a LIBOR Rate Loan as a LIBOR Rate Loan, the last day of the then current Interest Period (the “LIBOR Deadline”).  Notice of the Borrower’s election of the LIBOR Option for a permitted portion of the Revolving Loans and an Interest Period pursuant to this Section 2.07(a) shall be made by delivery to the Administrative Agent of (A) a Notice of Borrowing (in the case of the initial making of a Revolving Loan) in accordance with Section 2.02 or (B) a LIBOR Notice prior to the LIBOR Deadline (or by telephonic notice received by the Administrative Agent before the LIBOR Deadline (to be confirmed by delivery to the Administrative Agent of a LIBOR Notice received by the Administrative Agent prior to 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the same day)).  Promptly upon its receipt of each such LIBOR Notice, the Administrative Agent shall provide a copy thereof to each of the Lenders.  Each LIBOR Notice shall be irrevocable and binding on the Borrower.

(b)Interest on LIBOR Rate Loans shall be payable in accordance with Section 2.04(b).  On the last day of each applicable Interest Period, unless the Borrower has properly exercised the LIBOR Option with respect thereto, the interest rate applicable to such LIBOR Rate Loans automatically shall convert to the rate of interest then applicable to Reference Rate Loans of the same type hereunder.  At any time that a Default or an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Borrower shall no longer have the option to request that any portion of the Revolving Loans bear interest at the LIBOR Rate and the Administrative Agent shall have the right to convert the interest rate on all outstanding LIBOR Rate Loans to the rate of interest then applicable to Reference Rate Loans of the same type hereunder on the last day of the then current Interest Period.

(c)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the Borrower (i) shall have not more than five (5) LIBOR Rate Loans in effect at any given time and (ii) only may exercise the LIBOR Option for LIBOR Rate Loans of at least $100,000 and integral multiples of $50,000 in excess thereof.

(d)The Borrower may prepay LIBOR Rate Loans at any time; provided, however, that in the event that LIBOR Rate Loans are prepaid on any date that is not the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, including as a result of any mandatory prepayment pursuant to Section 2.05(c) or any application of payments or proceeds of Collateral in accordance with Section 4.03 or Section 4.04 or for any other reason, including early termination of the term of this Agreement or acceleration of all or any portion of the Obligations pursuant to the terms hereof, the Borrower shall indemnify, defend, and hold the Administrative Agent and the Lenders and their participants harmless against any and all Funding Losses in accordance with Section 2.08.

(e)Anything to the contrary contained herein notwithstanding, neither the Administrative Agent nor any Lender, nor any of their participants, is required actually to acquire eurodollar deposits to fund or otherwise match fund any Obligation as to which interest accrues at the LIBOR Rate.  The provisions of this Article II shall apply as if each Lender or its

61


participants had match funded any Obligation as to which interest is accruing at the LIBOR Rate by acquiring eurodollar deposits for each Interest Period in the amount of the LIBOR Rate Loans.

Section 2.08Funding Losses.  In connection with each LIBOR Rate Loan, the Borrower shall indemnify, defend, and hold the Administrative Agent and the Lenders harmless against any loss, cost, or expense incurred by the Administrative Agent or any Lender as a result of (a) the payment of any principal of any LIBOR Rate Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of a Default or an Event of Default or any mandatory prepayment required pursuant to Section 2.05(c)), (b) the conversion of any LIBOR Rate Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of a Default or an Event of Default), or (c) the failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay any LIBOR Rate Loan on the date specified in any Notice of Borrowing or LIBOR Notice delivered pursuant hereto (such losses, costs, and expenses, collectively, “Funding Losses”).  Funding Losses shall, with respect to the Administrative Agent or any Lender, be deemed to equal the amount reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent or such Lender to be the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest that would have accrued on the principal amount of such LIBOR Rate Loan had such event not occurred, at the LIBOR Rate that would have been applicable thereto, 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 therefor), minus (ii) the amount of interest that would accrue on such principal amount for such period at the interest rate which the Administrative Agent or such Lender would be offered were it to be offered, at the commencement of such period, Dollar deposits of a comparable amount and period in the London interbank market.  A certificate of the Administrative Agent or a Lender delivered to the Borrower setting forth any amount or amounts that the Administrative Agent or such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section 2.08 shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

Section 2.09Taxes.  (a) Any and all payments by or on account of any Loan Party hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any and all Taxes, except as required by applicable law.  If any Loan Party shall be required to deduct any Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable hereunder to any Secured Party (or any transferee or assignee thereof, including a participation holder (any such entity, a “Transferee”)), (i) the applicable withholding agent shall make such deductions and (ii) the applicable withholding agent shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law and (iii) if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the applicable Loan Party shall be increased by the amount (an “Additional Amount”) necessary such that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to any Additional Amount payable under this Section 2.09) such Secured Party (or such Transferee) receives the amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made.

(b)In addition, each Loan Party agrees to pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law any Other Taxes.  Each Loan Party shall deliver to each Secured Party official receipts or other evidence of payment reasonably satisfactory to such Secured Party in respect of any Taxes or Other Taxes payable pursuant to this Section 2.09 promptly after payment of such Taxes or Other Taxes.

62


(c)The Loan Parties hereby jointly and severally indemnify and agree to hold each Secured Party harmless from and against Indemnified Taxes (including, without limitation, Indemnified Taxes imposed on any amounts payable under this Section 2.09) paid by such Person, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally asserted.  Such indemnification shall be paid within ten (10) days from the date on which any such Person makes written demand therefore.

(d)Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document shall deliver to the Loan Parties and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested in writing by the Loan Parties or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested in writing by the Loan Parties or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding.  In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested in writing by the Loan Parties or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested in writing by the Loan Parties or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Loan Parties or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Lender (or Transferee) agrees that it shall, no later than the Effective Date (or, in the case of a Lender which becomes a party hereto pursuant to Section 12.07 hereof after the Effective Date, promptly after the date upon which such Lender becomes a party hereto) deliver to the Administrative Agent (or, in the case of an assignee of a Lender which (x) is an Affiliate of such Lender or a Related Fund of such Lender and (y) does not deliver an Assignment and Acceptance to the Administrative Agent pursuant to the last sentence of Section 12.07(c)(ii) for recordation pursuant to Section 12.07(e), to the assigning Lender only, and in the case of a participant, to the Lender granting the participation only), in the case of a Lender (or Transferee) that is a U.S. Person, one properly completed and duly executed copy of U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-9, and in the case of a Lender (or Transferee) that is not a U.S. Person (a “Non-U.S. Lender”), one properly completed and duly executed copy of either U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, W-8BEN-E, W-8ECI or W-8IMY (including any attachments thereto) or any subsequent versions thereof or successors thereto, in each case claiming complete exemption from, or reduced rate of, U.S. Federal withholding tax on payments of interest hereunder.  In addition, in the case of a Non-U.S. Lender claiming exemption from U.S. Federal withholding tax under Section 871(h) or 881(c) of the Internal Revenue Code, such Non-U.S. Lender hereby represents to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower that such Non-U.S. Lender is not a bank for purposes of Section 881(c) of the Internal Revenue Code, is not a 10-percent shareholder (within the meaning of Section 871(h)(3)(B) of the Internal Revenue Code) of the Borrower and is not a controlled foreign corporation related to the Borrower (within the meaning of Section 864(d)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code).  Such forms shall be delivered by each Non-U.S. Lender on or before the date it becomes a party to this Agreement (or, in the case of a Transferee that is a participation holder, on or before the date such participation holder becomes a Transferee hereunder) and on or before the date, if any, such Non-U.S. Lender changes its applicable lending office by designating a different lending office.  In addition, each Lender (or Transferee) or the Administrative Agent shall deliver such forms within twenty (20) days after receipt of a written request therefor from the Administrative Agent, the assigning Lender or the Lender granting a participation, as applicable.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 2.09, a Non-U.S. Lender shall not be required to deliver any form pursuant to this Section 2.09(d) that such

Non-U.S. Lender is not legally able to deliver.  Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.

(e)If any Secured Party (or a Transferee) determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund (including pursuant to a claim for refund made pursuant to the preceding sentence) in respect of any Taxes or Other Taxes with respect to which any Loan Party has made an indemnity payment or paid Additional Amounts pursuant to this Section 2.09, it shall within thirty (30) days from the date of such receipt pay over such refund to the Borrower, net of all out of pocket expenses of such Secured Party (or Transferee) relating to obtaining such refund, provided that the Borrower, upon the request of such Secured Party (or Transferee), shall repay to such Secured Party (or Transferee) any amount paid over pursuant to this Section 2.09(e) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such Secured Party (or Transferee) is required to repay such amount to such Governmental Authority.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.09(e), in no event will the Secured Party (or Transferee) be required to pay any amount to the Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.09(e) the payment of which would place the Secured Party (or Transferee) in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the Secured Party (or Transferee) would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid.  This paragraph shall not be construed to require any Secured Party (or Transferee) to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the Borrower or any other Person.

(f)If a payment made to a Lender (or Transferee) or any Agent under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. Federal withholding tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender (or Transferee) or Agent were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Internal Revenue Code, as applicable), such Lender (or Transferee) or Agent shall deliver to the Borrower and the Agents at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Agents such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Internal Revenue Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Agents as may be necessary for the Borrower and the Agents to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender (or Transferee) or Agent has complied with its obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount, if any, to deduct and withhold from such payment.  Solely for purposes of this Section 2.09(f), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

(g)The obligations of the Loan Parties under this Section 2.09 shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Revolving Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder.

Section 2.10Increased Costs and Reduced Return.  (a) If any Secured Party shall have determined that any Change in Law shall (i) subject such Secured Party to any Taxes (other than Indemnified Taxes and Excluded Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto,

64


(ii) impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit or similar requirement against any Revolving Loan, any Letter of Credit or against assets of or held by, or deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, such Secured Party or any Person controlling such Secured Party or (iii) impose on such Secured Party or any Person controlling such Secured Party any other condition regarding this Agreement or any Revolving Loan or Letter of Credit, and the result of any event referred to in clauses (i), (ii) or (iii) above shall be to increase the cost to such Secured Party of making any Revolving Loan, issuing, guaranteeing or participating in any Letter of Credit, or agreeing to make any Revolving Loan or issue, guaranty or participate in any Letter of Credit, or to reduce any amount received or receivable by such Secured Party hereunder, then, upon demand by such Secured Party, the Borrower shall pay to such Secured Party such additional amounts as will compensate such Secured Party for such increased costs or reductions in amount.

(b)If any Secured Party shall have reasonably determined that any Change in Law either (i) affects or would affect the amount of capital required or expected to be maintained by such Secured Party or any Person controlling such Secured Party, and such Secured Party determines that the amount of such capital is increased as a direct or indirect consequence of any Revolving Loans made or maintained, Letters of Credit issued or any guaranty or participation with respect thereto, such Secured Party’s or such other controlling Person’s other obligations hereunder, or (ii) has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Secured Party’s or such other controlling Person’s capital to a level below that which such Secured Party or such controlling Person could have achieved but for such circumstances as a consequence of any Revolving Loans made or maintained, Letters of Credit issued, or any guaranty or participation with respect thereto or any agreement to make Revolving Loans, to issue Letters of Credit or such Secured Party’s or such other controlling Person’s other obligations hereunder (in each case, taking into consideration, such Secured Party’s or such other controlling Person’s policies with respect to capital adequacy), then, upon demand by such Secured Party, the Borrower shall pay to such Secured Party from time to time such additional amounts as will compensate such Secured Party for such cost of maintaining such increased capital or such reduction in the rate of return on such Secured Party’s or such other controlling Person’s capital.

(c)All amounts payable under this Section 2.10 shall bear interest from the date that is ten (10) days after the date of demand by any Secured Party until payment in full to such Secured Party at the Reference Rate.  A certificate of such Secured Party claiming compensation under this Section 2.10, specifying the event herein above described and the nature of such event shall be submitted by such Secured Party to the Borrower, setting forth the additional amount due and an explanation of the calculation thereof, and such Secured Party’s reasons for invoking the provisions of this Section 2.10, and shall be final and conclusive absent manifest error.

(d)Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.10 shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.10 for any increased costs incurred or reductions suffered more than nine months prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor (except that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the nine-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof).

65


(e)The obligations of the Loan Parties under this Section 2.10 shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Revolving Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder.

Section 2.11Changes in Law; Impracticability or Illegality.

(a)The LIBOR Rate may be adjusted by the Administrative Agent with respect to any Lender on a prospective basis to take into account any additional or increased costs to such Lender of maintaining or obtaining any eurodollar deposits or increased costs due to changes in applicable law occurring subsequent to the commencement of the then applicable Interest Period, including changes in the reserve requirements imposed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (or any successor), excluding the Reserve Percentage, which additional or increased costs would increase the cost of funding loans bearing interest at the LIBOR Rate, and excluding changes in Tax laws.  In any such event, the affected Lender shall give the Borrower and the Administrative Agent notice of such a determination and adjustment and the Administrative Agent promptly shall transmit the notice to each other Lender and, upon its receipt of the notice from the affected Lender, the Borrower may, by notice to such affected Lender (i) require such Lender to furnish to the Borrower a statement setting forth the basis for adjusting such LIBOR Rate and the method for determining the amount of such adjustment, or (ii) repay the LIBOR Rate Loans with respect to which such adjustment is made (together with any amounts due under Section 2.09).

(b)If any Lender determines that for any reason in connection with any request for a LIBOR Rate Loan, or a conversion to or continuation thereof that (a) Dollar deposits are not being offered to banks in the London interbank eurodollar market for the applicable amount and Interest Period of such LIBOR Rate Loan, (b) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for determining the LIBOR Rate for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed LIBOR Rate Loan or in connection with an existing or proposed Reference Rate Loan, (c) the LIBOR Rate for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed LIBOR Rate Loan does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lender of funding such Revolving Loan, or (d) the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority has implemented a policy that the LIBOR Rate (or any component thereof) is no longer to be permitted to be a benchmark rate and the Administrative Agent, Required Lenders and the Borrower have not agreed to an alternative benchmark rate, the Administrative Agent will promptly so notify the Borrower and each Lender.  Thereafter, (y) the obligation of the Lenders to make or maintain LIBOR Rate Loans shall be suspended, and (z) in the event of a determination described in the preceding sentence with respect to the LIBOR component of the Reference Rate, the utilization of the LIBOR component in determining the Reference Rate shall be suspended, in each case until the Administrative Agent (upon the instruction of the Required Lenders) revokes such notice.  Upon receipt of such notice, the Borrower may revoke any pending request for a borrowing of or conversion to LIBOR Rate Loans, or continuation of LIBOR Rate Loans or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for a borrowing of Reference Rate Loans in the amount specified therein.

(c)The obligations of the Loan Parties under this Section 2.11 shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Revolving Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder.

66


Section 2.12Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders.

(a)If any Lender requires the Borrower to indemnify or pay any Additional Amounts under Section 2.09 or requests compensation under Section 2.10, then such Lender shall (at the request of the Borrower) use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Revolving Loans or Letter of Credit (or participations therein) hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to such Section in the future and (ii) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender.  The Borrower hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.

(b)If any Lender requires the Borrower to indemnify or pay any Additional Amounts under Section 2.09 or requests compensation under Section 2.10 and, in each case, such Lender has declined or is unable to designate a different lending office in accordance with clause (a) above, or if any Lender is a Defaulting Lender or is subject to a Disqualification, then the Borrower 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, and consents required by, Section 12.07), all of its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided that:

(i)the Borrower shall have paid to the Administrative Agent any assignment fees specified in Section 12.07;

(ii)such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Revolving Loans and participations in Letters of Credit, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder and under the other Loan Documents (including any amounts under Section 2.08 and Section 2.09) from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Borrower (in the case of all other amounts);

(iii)in the case of any such assignment resulting from payments required to be made pursuant to Section 2.09 or a claim for compensation under Section 2.10, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments thereafter; and

(iv)such assignment does not conflict with applicable law.

Prior to the effective date of such assignment, the assigning Lender shall execute and deliver an Assignment and Acceptance, subject only to the conditions set forth above.  If the assigning Lender shall refuse or fail to execute and deliver any such Assignment and Acceptance prior to the effective date of such assignment, the assigning Lender shall be deemed to have executed and delivered such Assignment and Acceptance.  Any such assignment shall be made in accordance with the terms of Section 12.07.

67


A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment or delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Borrower to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.

(c)If the Borrower receives a notice from any applicable Gaming Authority or otherwise reasonably determines that any Lender is subject to a Disqualification (and such Lender is notified by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of such Disqualification), the Borrower shall have the right to replace such Lender with a replacement Lender in accordance with Section 2.12(b), even if a Default or an Event of Default exists.  Notice to such Lender shall be given at least ten (10) days before the required date of transfer (unless a shorter period is required by any Requirement of Law and/or any Gaming License), and shall be accompanied by evidence demonstrating that such Lender is subject to a Disqualification or such transfer is otherwise required pursuant to Gaming Laws and/or any Gaming License.  Upon receipt of a notice in accordance with the foregoing, the Lender that is subject to the Disqualification shall cooperate with the Borrower in effectuating the required transfer within the time period set forth in such notice, not to be less than the minimum notice period set forth in the foregoing sentence (unless a shorter period is required under any Requirement of Law and/or any Gaming License).  Further, if the transfer is triggered by notice from a Gaming Authority that the Lender is subject to a Disqualification, commencing on the date such Gaming Authority serves the notice of Disqualification upon the Borrower, to the extent prohibited by any Requirement of Law and/or by any Gaming License:  (i) such Lender shall no longer receive any interest on the Revolving Loans; (ii) such Lender shall no longer exercise, directly or through any trustee or nominee, any right conferred by the Revolving Loans; and (iii) such Lender shall not receive any remuneration in any form from the Borrower for services or otherwise in respect of the Revolving Loans and Commitments.

Section 2.13Letters of Credit.

(a)(i) Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Issuing Lender agrees, upon Borrower’s request for the issuance of a new letter of credit as provided in subparagraph (ii) below, to issue letters of credit for the account of the Loan Parties (each, a “Letter of Credit”).  As used herein, the term “issuance of a Letter of Credit,” “issue a Letter of Credit” (or words of like import) means, as the context requires, the action described in the preceding sentence.

(ii)Each request for (x) the issuance of a new Letter of Credit or (y) the amendment, renewal, or extension of any outstanding Letter of Credit shall be made in writing by the Borrower and delivered to the Issuing Lender and the Administrative Agent via hand delivery, telefacsimile, or other electronic method of transmission prior to 1:00 p.m. New York time on the 3rd Business Day in advance of the requested date of issuance, amendment, renewal, or extension.  Each such request shall be in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Lender and shall specify (A) in the case of the issuance of a new Letter of Credit, the amount thereof, the date of issuance thereof, the expiration date thereof and the name and address of the beneficiary thereof, (B) in the case of the amendment, renewal or extension of an outstanding Letter of Credit, identification of the outstanding Letter of Credit to be so amended, renewed, or extended, a description of the proposed changes (including any

68


change to the amount thereof or the expiration date thereof) and the effective date of the proposed amendment, renewal or extension, and (C) in all cases, such other information as shall be necessary to prepare, amend, renew, or extend such new Letter of Credit or outstanding Letter of Credit, as applicable.  Except as otherwise expressly agreed in writing upon by all the Lenders, no Letter of Credit shall have an original expiry date more than twelve (12) months from the date of issuance; provided, however, so long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and subject to the other terms and conditions to the issuance of Letters of Credit hereunder, the expiry dates of Letters of Credit may be extended annually or periodically from time to time on the request of the Borrower or by operation of the terms of the applicable Letter of Credit to a date not more than twelve (12) months from the date of extension; provided, further, that no Letter of Credit, as originally issued or as extended, shall have an expiry date extending beyond the date that is thirty (30) days prior to the Final Maturity Date unless, on or prior to thirty (30) days prior to the Final Maturity Date, the Borrower provides Letter of Credit Collateralization for such Letter of Credit.  The issuance and expiry date of each Letter of Credit shall be a Business Day.  Each Letter of Credit issued hereunder shall be in a minimum original face amount of $100,000 or such lesser amount as approved by the Issuing Lender.  The Issuing Lender shall not issue a Letter of Credit, or amend, increase or extend a Letter of Credit, if any of the following would result after giving effect thereto:

(A)the Letter of Credit Obligations would exceed the amount of the L/C Subfacility, or

(B)the Letter of Credit Obligations would exceed the Total Revolving Credit Commitment minus the aggregate outstanding principal amount of all Revolving Loans.

Each outstanding Letter of Credit shall be in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Lender, including the requirement that the amounts payable thereunder must be payable in Dollars.  If the Issuing Lender is obligated to advance funds under a Letter of Credit (each such payment made by the Issuing Lender pursuant to a Letter of Credit, a “L/C Disbursement”), the Borrower shall reimburse such L/C Disbursement to the Issuing Lender by paying to the Administrative Agent an amount equal to such L/C Disbursement not later than 2:00 p.m., New York time, on the date that such L/C Disbursement is made, if the Borrower shall have received written notice of such L/C Disbursement prior to 11:00 a.m., New York time on such date, or, if such notice has not been received by the Borrower prior to such time on such date, then not later than 2:00 p.m., New York time, on the next succeeding Business Day, and, in the absence of such reimbursement, such L/C Disbursement immediately and automatically shall be deemed to be a Revolving Loan hereunder and, initially, shall bear interest at the rate then applicable to Revolving Loans that are Reference Rate Loans under Section 2.04.  To the extent a L/C Disbursement is deemed to be a Revolving Loan hereunder, Borrower’s obligation to reimburse such L/C Disbursement shall be discharged and replaced by the resulting Revolving Loan (for the avoidance of doubt, the failure of Borrower to reimburse such L/C Disbursement that is so discharged shall in no event be an Event of Default hereunder).  Promptly following receipt by the Administrative Agent of any payment from Borrower pursuant to this paragraph, the Administrative Agent shall distribute such payment to the Issuing Lender or, to the extent that

69


the Lenders have made payments pursuant to Section 2.13(b) to reimburse the Issuing Lender, then to such Lenders and the Issuing Lender as their interests may appear.

(b)Promptly following receipt of a notice from the Administrative Agent of an L/C Disbursement being deemed to be a Revolving Loan pursuant to Section 2.13(a), each Lender agrees to fund its Pro Rata Share of any Revolving Loan deemed made pursuant to the foregoing subsection on the same terms and conditions as if the Borrower had requested such Revolving Loan and the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to the Issuing Lender the amounts so received by it from the Lenders.  By the issuance of a Letter of Credit (or an amendment to an outstanding Letter of Credit that increases the amount of any Letter of Credit) and without any further action on the part of the Issuing Lender or the Lenders, the Issuing Lender shall be deemed to have granted to each Lender, and each Lender shall be deemed to have purchased, a participation in such newly issued or increased Letter of Credit, in an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share of the Letter of Credit Obligations with respect thereto, and each such Lender agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Issuing Lender, such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of any payments made by the Issuing Lender under such Letter of Credit.  In consideration and in furtherance of the foregoing, each Lender hereby absolutely and unconditionally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Issuing Lender, such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of each L/C Disbursement made by the Issuing Lender and not reimbursed by the Borrower on the date due as provided in clause (a) of this Section, or if any reimbursement payment is required to be refunded to the Borrower for any reason.  Each Lender acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to deliver to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Issuing Lender, an amount equal to its respective Pro Rata Share of each L/C Disbursement made by the Issuing Lender pursuant to this Section 2.13(b) shall be absolute and unconditional and such remittance shall be made notwithstanding the occurrence or continuation of an Event of Default or Default or the failure to satisfy any condition set forth in Article V hereof.  If any such Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent the amount of such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of each L/C Disbursement made by the Issuing Lender in respect of such Letter of Credit as provided in this Section, the Administrative Agent (for the account of the Issuing Lender) shall be entitled to recover such amount on demand from such Lender together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such payment was due until the date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent, at the rate then applicable to Revolving Loans that are Reference Rate Loans.

(c)The Borrower hereby agrees to indemnify, save, defend, and hold the Issuing Lender, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders harmless from any loss, liability, reasonable and documented out-of-pocket cost or expense, and reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred by the Issuing Lender, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders and any of the Issuing Lender’s, the Administrative Agent’s and Lenders’ respective Affiliates arising out of or in connection with any Letter of Credit; provided, however, that the Borrower shall not be obligated hereunder to indemnify for any loss, cost, expense, or liability to the extent that it is determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction (x) that it is caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Issuing Lender or the Administrative Agent or Lender or any of the Administrative Agent’s and the Lenders’ Affiliates, or (y) that it results from wrongful dishonor by the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender, any Lender or any of their Affiliates.  The Borrower agrees to be bound by the Issuing Lender’s regulations and interpretations of any Letter of Credit issued by the Issuing Lender to or for Borrower’s account (provided that in each case such interpretations are made in good faith and consistent with the practices of letter of credit

70


issuers generally), even though this interpretation may be different from the Borrower’s own, and the Borrower understands and agrees that the Administrative Agent and the Lenders or any of the Administrative Agent’s or Lenders’ respective Affiliates shall not be liable for any error, negligence, or mistake, whether of omission or commission, in following the Borrower’s instructions or those contained in the Letter of Credit or any modifications, amendments, or supplements thereto.  The Borrower hereby acknowledges and agrees that neither the Administrative Agent, any Lender, nor the Issuing Lender shall be responsible for delays, errors, or omissions resulting from the malfunction of equipment in connection with any Letter of Credit (so long as such malfunction is not due to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of any such Person).

(d)Any and all customary issuance charges, commissions, fees, and costs incurred by the Issuing Lender shall be Obligations for purposes of this Agreement and shall be reimbursable by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Lender promptly after written demand therefore (it being acknowledged and agreed that any charging of such charges, commissions, fees and costs to the Loan Account shall be deemed to constitute a demand for payment thereof); it being acknowledged and agreed by the Borrower that the usage charge imposed by Issuing Lender is 0.125% per annum times the average daily stated amount (as of the end of each day during the relevant period) each outstanding Letter of Credit, payable quarterly, in arrears on the last Business Day of each quarter after the Effective Date, with the first payment date being March 31, 2021, and that the Issuing Lender may also impose its customary charges for amendments, extensions, drawings, and renewals, payable on demand.

Section 2.14Participations.

(a)Purchase of Participations.  Immediately upon issuance by the Issuing Lender of any Letter of Credit pursuant to this Agreement, each Lender shall be deemed to have irrevocably and unconditionally purchased and received from the Administrative Agent, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation, to the extent of such Lender’s Pro Rata Share, in the Letter of Credit Obligations then outstanding.

(b)Obligations Irrevocable.  The obligations of a Lender to make payments to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Administrative Agent, the Lenders or the Issuing Lender with respect to a Letter of Credit shall be irrevocable, without any qualification or exception whatsoever and shall be made in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement under all circumstances, including, without limitation, any of the following circumstances:

(i)any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents;

(ii)the existence of any claim, setoff, defense or other right which any Loan Party may have at any time against a beneficiary named in such Letter of Credit or any transferee of such Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom any such transferee may be acting), any Agent, any Lender, or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, such Letter of Credit, the transactions contemplated herein or any unrelated

71


transactions (including any underlying transactions between any Loan Party and the beneficiary named in such Letter of Credit);

(iii)Issuing Lender or any of its branches or Affiliates being the beneficiary of any Letter of Credit;

(iv)any draft, certificate or any other document presented under such Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect;

(v)the surrender or impairment of any security for the performance or observance of any of the terms of any of the Loan Documents;

(vi)any failure by the Administrative Agent to provide any notices required pursuant to this Agreement relating to such Letter of Credit;

(vii)any payment by the Issuing Lender under such Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or certificate which does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit; or

(viii)the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default.

Section 2.15Letters of Credit and Charges to the Loan Account.

(a)The Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders, in accordance with the Lenders’ Pro Rata Shares for any Letter of Credit issued hereunder, a non-refundable fee equal to (x) the then Applicable Margin for Revolving Loans that are LIBOR Rate Loans times (y) the average daily stated amount (as of the end of each day during the relevant period) of all outstanding Letters of Credit, payable quarterly, in arrears, on the first Business Day of each quarter following the Effective Date (the “Letter of Credit Fee”).

(b)The Borrower hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to, and the Administrative Agent may, from time to time, charge the Loan Account pursuant to Section 4.01 of this Agreement with the amount of any Letter of Credit Fee or charges due under this Section 2.15 and Section 2.13(d).

The remaining balance in the Letter of Credit Collateral Account shall be returned to the Borrower when all Obligations have been paid in full, there are no outstanding Letters of Credit, and all Commitments to extend Revolving Loans or issue Letters of Credit have terminated.

Section 2.16MIRE Events.  Each of the parties hereto acknowledges and agrees that, if there are any Mortgaged Properties, any increase, extension or renewal of any of the Revolving Loans (excluding any continuation or conversion of Revolving Loans under Section 2.07) shall be subject to (and conditioned upon) the prior delivery of all flood hazard determination certifications, acknowledgements and evidence of flood insurance and other flood-related documentation with respect to such Mortgaged Properties as required by laws relating to flood insurance and as otherwise reasonably required by the Administrative Agent, Collateral Trustee or any Lender.

JOINT AND SEVERAL LIABILITY OF BORROWER

Section 4.01Payments; Computations and Statements.  (a) The Borrower will make each payment under this Agreement not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the day when due, in lawful money of the United States of America and in immediately available funds, to the Administrative Agent’s Account, as applicable.  All payments received by the Administrative Agent after 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) on any Business Day will be credited to the Loan Account on the next succeeding Business Day.  All payments shall be made by the Borrower without set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, deduction or other defense to the Agents and the Lenders.  Except as provided in Section 2.02, after receipt, the Administrative Agent will promptly thereafter cause to be distributed like funds relating to the payment of principal ratably to the Lenders in accordance with their Pro Rata Shares and like funds relating to the payment of any other amount payable to any Lender to such Lender, in each case to be applied in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.  The Lenders and the Borrower hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to, and the Administrative Agent may, from time to time, charge the Loan Account of the Borrower with any amount due and payable by the Borrower under any Loan Document.  Each of the Lenders and the Borrower agree that the Administrative Agent shall have the right to make such charges whether or not any Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing or whether any of the conditions precedent in Section 5.02 have been satisfied.  Any amount charged to the Loan Account of the Borrower shall be deemed a Revolving Loan hereunder made by the Lenders to the Borrower, funded by the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Lenders and subject to Section 2.02 of this Agreement.  The Lenders and the Borrower confirm that any charges which the Administrative Agent may so make to the applicable Loan Account of the Borrower as herein provided will be made as an accommodation to the Borrower and solely at the Administrative Agent’s discretion and with the prior written consent of the Required Lenders.  Whenever any payment to be made under any such Loan Document shall be stated to be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension of time shall in such case be included in the computation of interest or fees, as the case may be.  All computations of fees shall be made by the Administrative Agent on the basis of a year of 360 days for the actual number of days.  Each determination by the Administrative Agent of an interest rate or fees hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes in the absence of manifest error.

(b)The Administrative Agent shall provide the Borrower, promptly after the end of each calendar month, a summary statement (in the form from time to time used by the Administrative Agent) of the opening and closing daily balances in the Loan Account of the Borrower during such month, the amounts and dates of all Revolving Loans made to the Borrower during such month, the amounts and dates of all payments on account of the Revolving Loans to the Borrower during such month and the Revolving Loans to which such payments were applied, the amount of interest accrued on the Revolving Loans to the Borrower during such month, any Letters of Credit issued by the Issuing Lender for the account of the Borrower during such month, specifying the face amount thereof, the amount of charges to the Loan Account and/or Revolving

73


Loans made to the Borrower during such month to reimburse the Lenders for drawings made under Letters of Credit, and the amount and nature of any charges to the Loan Account made during such month on account of fees, commissions, expenses and other Obligations.  All entries on any such statement shall be presumed to be correct and, thirty (30) days after the same is sent, shall be final and conclusive absent manifest error.

Section 4.02Sharing of Payments.  If any Lender shall obtain any payment (whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right of set-off, or otherwise) on account of any Obligation in excess of its ratable share of payments on account of similar obligations obtained by all the Lenders with an interest in such Obligations, such Lender shall forthwith purchase from the other Lenders such participations in such similar obligations held by them as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender to share the excess payment ratably with each of them; provided, however, that (a) if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from such purchasing Lender, such purchase from each Lender shall be rescinded and each Lender shall repay to the purchasing Lender the purchase price to the extent of such recovery together with an amount equal to such Lender’s ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Lender’s required repayment to (ii) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing Lender) of any interest or other amount paid by the purchasing Lender in respect of the total amount so recovered and (b) the provisions of this Section shall not be construed to apply to (i) any payment made by the Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement (including the application of funds arising from the existence of a Defaulting Lender), or (ii) any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Revolving Loans or participations in Letters of Credit to any assignee or participant, other than to any Loan Party or any Subsidiary thereof (as to which the provisions of this Section shall apply).  The Borrower agrees that any Lender so purchasing a participation from another Lender pursuant to this Section may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all of its rights (including the Lender’s right of set-off) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were the direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation.

Section 4.03Apportionment of Payments.

(a)All payments of principal and interest in respect of outstanding Revolving Loans, all payments of fees (other than the fees set forth in Section 2.06(d) hereof) and all other payments in respect of any other Obligations, shall be allocated by the Administrative Agent among such of the Lenders as are entitled thereto, in proportion to their respective Pro Rata Shares or otherwise as provided herein or, in respect of payments not made on account of Revolving Loans or Letter of Credit Obligations, as designated by the Person making payment when the payment is made.

(b)Subject to the Collateral Trust Agreement, (i) after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Administrative Agent may, and upon the direction of the Required Lenders shall, apply all proceeds of the Collateral and all distributions in respect of the Obligations under a confirmed plan of reorganization in a proceeding described in subclauses (f) or (g) of Section 9.01, subject to the provisions of this Agreement and (ii) all payments made by Loan Parties to the Collateral Trustee or the Administrative Agent after any or all of the Obligations under the Loan Documents have been accelerated (so long as such acceleration has

74


not been rescinded) or have otherwise matured, including proceeds of Collateral, shall be applied as follows:

FIRST, to the payment of all indemnities and out of pocket costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) of the Administrative Agent under the Loan Documents, until paid in full;

SECOND, to the payment of any fees owed to the Administrative Agent, until paid in full;

THIRD, to the payment of all indemnities and out of pocket costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) of the Arranger under the Loan Documents or otherwise with respect to the Obligations owing to the Arranger, until paid in full;

FOURTH, to payment of any fees owed to the Arranger, until paid in full;

FIFTH, to the payment of all indemnities and out of pocket costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) of each of the Lenders and Issuing Lenders in connection with enforcing its rights under the Loan Documents or otherwise with respect to the Obligations owing to such Lender or Issuing Lender, until paid in full;

SIXTH, to the payment of all of the Obligations consisting of accrued fees and interest, and including, with respect to any Cash Management Services, any fees, premiums and scheduled periodic payments due under such Cash Management Services and any interest accrued thereon (whether or not accruing after the filing of any case under the Bankruptcy Code with respect to the Obligations and whether or not a claim for such post-filing or post-petition interest, fees and charges is allowed or allowable in such proceeding), until paid in full;

SEVENTH, to the payment of the outstanding principal amount of the Obligations and the payment, and including with respect to any Cash Management Services, of any breakage, termination or other payments due under such Cash Management Services and any interest accrued thereon and the providing of Letter of Credit Collateralization (pursuant to clause (a) of the definition thereof) for all issued Letters of Credit, until paid in full;

EIGHTH, to all other Obligations and other obligations which shall have become due and payable under the Loan Documents or otherwise and not repaid pursuant to clauses “FIRST” through “SEVENTH” above, until paid in full; and

NINTH, to the payment of the surplus, if any, to whoever may be lawfully entitled to receive such surplus.

In the event of a direct conflict between the priority provisions of this Section 4.03 and other provisions contained in any other Loan Document, this Section 4.03 shall control and govern; provided that, in the event of a direct conflict between the priority provisions of this

75


Section 4.03 and any provisions of the Collateral Trust Agreement, such provisions of the Collateral Trust Agreement shall control and govern.

Section 4.04Defaulting Lenders.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then, until such time as such Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable law:

(a)Such Defaulting Lender’s right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent with respect to this Agreement shall be suspended and the Commitments of any Defaulting Lender shall be excluded for purposes of making a determination of Required Lenders.

(b)The Administrative Agent shall not be obligated to transfer to such Defaulting Lender any payments made by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent for such Defaulting Lender’s benefit, and, in the absence of such transfer to such Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent shall transfer any such payments to each other non-Defaulting Lender ratably in accordance with their Pro Rata Shares (without giving effect to the Pro Rata Shares of such Defaulting Lender) (but only to the extent that such Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Loans were funded by the other Lenders) or, if so directed by the Borrower and if no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing (and to the extent such Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Loans were not funded by the other Lenders), retain the same to be re-advanced to the Borrower as if such Defaulting Lender had made such Revolving Loans to the Borrower.  Subject to the foregoing, the Administrative Agent may hold and, in its discretion, re-lend to the Borrower for the account of such Defaulting Lender the amount of all such payments received and retained by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender.

(c)Any such failure to fund by any Defaulting Lender shall constitute a material breach by such Defaulting Lender of this Agreement and shall entitle the Borrower to replace the Defaulting Lender in accordance with Section 2.12.

(d)The operation of this Section shall not be construed to increase or otherwise affect the Commitments of any Lender, to relieve or excuse the performance by such Defaulting Lender or any other Lender of its duties and obligations hereunder, or to relieve or excuse the performance by the Borrower of its duties and obligations hereunder to the Administrative Agent or to the Lenders other than such Defaulting Lender.

(e)This Section shall remain effective with respect to such Lender until either (i) the Obligations under this Agreement shall have been declared or shall have become immediately due and payable or (ii) the non-Defaulting Lenders, the Administrative Agent, and the Borrower shall have waived such Defaulting Lender’s default in writing, and the Defaulting Lender makes its Pro Rata Share of the applicable defaulted Revolving Loans and pays to the Administrative Agent all amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender in respect thereof; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while such Lender was a Defaulting Lender; provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from such Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender.

98

(l)[Reserved].

(m)After Acquired Real Property.  Subject to compliance with applicable Gaming Laws, upon the acquisition or lease by it or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries after the date hereof of any fee or leasehold interest in any real property (wherever located and including both developed and undeveloped real property) within fifteen (15) Business Days so notify the Administrative Agent, setting forth with specificity a description of the interest acquired, the location of the real property, any structures or improvements thereon and either an appraisal or such Loan Party’s good-faith estimate of the current value of such real property.  The Administrative Agent shall notify such Loan Party whether it intends to require a Mortgage (and any other Real Property Deliverables) with respect to such real property; provided that in connection with such determination the Administrative Agent shall consider whether the burden or cost of securing such real property outweighs the benefit of such security to the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties; provided further that a Mortgage may only be requested for any fee or leasehold interest in any real property with a Fair Market Value in excess of $5,000,000 individually or $10,000,000 in the aggregate with all other real property acquired after the Effective Date.  Upon receipt of such notice requesting a Mortgage (and any other Real Property Deliverables), the Person that has acquired such real property shall furnish the same to the Collateral Trustee within sixty (60) days of such request (or such later period of time as agreed to by the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion).  The Borrower shall pay all fees and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, and all title insurance charges and premiums, in connection with each Loan Party’s obligations under this Section 7.01(m).

99


location of the Vessel and either an appraisal or such Loan Party’s good-faith estimate of the current value of such Vessel.  The Administrative Agent shall notify such Loan Party whether it intends to require a Ship Mortgage (and any other Vessel Deliverables) with respect to such Vessel; provided that (i) no Ship Mortgage shall be required with respect to any Vessel with a fair market value of less than $1,000,000 and (ii) in connection with such determination the Administrative Agent shall consider whether the burden or cost of securing such Vessel outweighs the benefit of such security to the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties.  Upon receipt of such notice requesting a Ship Mortgage (and all other Vessel Deliverables), the Person that has acquired such Vessel shall furnish the same to the Collateral Trustee within sixty (60) days of such request (or such later period of time as agreed to by the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion).  The Borrower shall pay all fees and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, and all insurance charges and premiums, in connection with each Loan Party’s obligations under this Section 7.01(n).

(o)Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Laws.  Maintain, and cause each of its Restricted Subsidiaries to maintain, anti-bribery and anti-corruption policies and procedures that are reasonably designed to ensure compliance with the Anti-Corruption Laws.

(A)no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing at the time of or immediately after giving effect to such Designation;

(B)the Borrower would be permitted under this Agreement to make an Investment at the time of such Designation (assuming the effectiveness of such Designation) in an amount (the “Designation Amount”) equal to the fair market value of the assets of such Subsidiary (net of any liabilities of such Subsidiary that will not constitute liabilities of any Loan Party or Restricted Subsidiary after such Designation) owned by the Borrower and/or any of the Restricted Subsidiaries on such date;

100


(C)after giving effect to such Designation, other than in the case of a newly-formed Subsidiary that has no assets (other than immaterial assets), the Borrower shall be in compliance with the financial covenants set forth in Section 7.03 (regardless of whether then applicable) on a pro forma basis as of the last day of the most recently ended fiscal quarter;

(ii)The Borrower may revoke any Designation of a Subsidiary as an Unrestricted Subsidiary (a “Revocation”), whereupon such Subsidiary shall then constitute a Restricted Subsidiary, if:

(A)all Liens and Indebtedness of such Unrestricted Subsidiary and its Subsidiaries outstanding immediately following such Revocation would, if incurred at the time of such Revocation, have been permitted to be incurred for all purposes of this Agreement;

(B)any designation of such Subsidiary as an “Unrestricted Subsidiary” shall have been revoked under the Senior Secured Notes; and

(C)such Revocation would not cause or result in a Default or an Event of Default.

(iii)All Designations and Revocations occurring after the Effective Date must be evidenced by an officer’s certificate of the Borrower delivered to the Administrative Agent with the Authorized Officer so executing such certificate certifying compliance with the foregoing provisions of Section 7.01(r)(i) (in the case of any such Designations) and of Section 7.01(r)(ii) (in the case of any such Revocations).

(iv)If Borrower designates a Guarantor as an Unrestricted Subsidiary in accordance with this Section 7.01(r)(i), the Obligations of such Guarantor under the Loan Documents shall terminate and be of no further force and effect and, subject to the terms of the Collateral Trust Agreement and at the Borrower’s request, the Administrative Agent

101


will execute and deliver to the Collateral Trustee any instrument evidencing such termination and direct the Collateral Trustee shall take all actions appropriate and in accordance with the Collateral Trust Agreement in order to effect such termination and release of such Liens and without recourse or warranty by the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Trustee (including the execution and delivery of appropriate UCC termination statements and such other instruments and releases as may be necessary and appropriate to effect such release).  Any such foregoing actions taken by the Administrative Agent and/or Collateral Trustee shall be at the sole cost and expense of the Borrower.

(s)Further Assurances.  Take such action and execute, acknowledge and deliver, and cause each of its Restricted Subsidiaries to take such action and execute, acknowledge and deliver, at its sole cost and expense, such agreements, instruments or other documents as any Agent may reasonably require from time to time in order (i) to subject to valid and perfected first priority Liens (or, with respect to any Mortgaged Vessel, a valid preferred mortgage lien on such Mortgaged Vessel with the priority provided by the Ship Mortgage Act, Chapter 313 of Title 46 of the United States Code) (subject to Permitted Liens) any of the Collateral or any other property of any Loan Party and its Restricted Subsidiaries, and (ii) to establish and maintain the validity and effectiveness of any of the Loan Documents and the validity, perfection and priority of the Liens intended to be created thereby.  In furtherance of the foregoing, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, each Loan Party (i) authorizes (but does not obligate) each Agent to execute any such agreements, instruments or other documents in such Loan Party’s name and to file such agreements, instruments or other documents in any appropriate filing office, (ii) authorizes (but does not obligate) each Agent to file any financing statement required hereunder or under any other Loan Document, and any continuation statement or amendment with respect thereto, in any appropriate filing office without the signature of such Loan Party, and (iii) ratifies the filing of any financing statement, and any continuation statement or amendment with respect thereto, filed without the signature of such Loan Party prior to the date hereof.

(t)Post-Closing Covenant(s).  Execute and deliver the documents and complete the tasks set forth on Schedule 7.01(t), in each case within the time limits specified on such schedule (or such later period of time as agreed to by the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion).

102


for the Borrower’s most recently ended four full fiscal quarters for which internal consolidated financial statements are available immediately preceding the date on which such additional Indebtedness is incurred would have been at least 2.0 to 1.0, determined on a pro forma basis (including a pro forma application of the net proceeds therefrom), as if the additional Indebtedness had been incurred at the beginning of such four-quarter period.

The first paragraph of this covenant will not prohibit the incurrence of any of the following items of Indebtedness (collectively, “Permitted Debt”):

(i)the incurrence by the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries of the Obligations, including (x) Indebtedness represented by this Agreement, and the Revolving Loans and Guaranties and (y) each of their obligations arising under the Loan Documents to the extent such obligations constitute Indebtedness;

(ii)the incurrence by the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries of Indebtedness with respect to the Senior Secured Notes in an aggregate principal amount at any one time outstanding under this clause (ii), including all Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness incurred to renew, refund, refinance, replace, defease or discharge any Indebtedness incurred pursuant to this clause (ii), not to exceed $310.0 million; provided that Indebtedness under this clause (ii) may be designated as Parity Lien Debt but not Priority Lien Debt;

(xii)the incurrence of unsecured Indebtedness in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $10,000,000 at any time outstanding;

(xiii)the issuance by any of the Borrower’s Restricted Subsidiaries to the Borrower or to any of its Restricted Subsidiaries of shares of Preferred Stock;

(xv)the incurrence by the Borrower or any of the Guarantors of Indebtedness in respect of bid, payment or other performance bonds, surety bonds, release, appeal and similar bonds, statutory obligations, workers’ compensation claims, self-insurance obligations, bankers’ acceptances, completion guarantees and letters of credit provided by the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries in the ordinary course of business (including to support the Borrower’s or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries’ applications for Gaming Licenses or for the purposes referenced in this clause (xv)), and reimbursement obligations in respect of the foregoing;

104


(xvi)Indebtedness arising from agreements of the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries providing for indemnification, adjustment of purchase price or similar obligations, in each case, incurred or assumed in connection with any Investments or any acquisition or disposition of any business, assets or a subsidiary, other than guarantees of Indebtedness incurred by any Person acquiring all or any portion of such business, assets or subsidiary for the purpose of financing that acquisition;

(xvii)Acquired Debt and other Indebtedness of Persons outstanding on the date on which such Person became a Restricted Subsidiary or was acquired by, or merged into, the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries or incurred or issued to finance a merger consolidation or other acquisition; provided, however, that (A) at the time such Person is acquired, either (i) on the date of such transaction after giving pro forma effect thereto and as if the same had occurred at the beginning of the applicable four-quarter period, the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries would be permitted to incur at least $1.00 of additional Indebtedness pursuant to the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio test set forth in the first paragraph of this Section 7.02(b) or (ii) on the date of such transaction after giving pro forma effect thereto and as if the same had occurred at the beginning of the applicable four-quarter period the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio of the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries would be no lower than such ratio immediately prior to such acquisition or merger or (B) such Indebtedness is Indebtedness of a Restricted Subsidiary that existed at the time such Person became a Subsidiary and was not created in contemplation thereof;

(xviii)Indebtedness consisting of the financing of insurance premiums;

(xix)PPP Loan Debt;

(xx)a finance lease at the Rising Star Casino Resort, not to exceed $4.0 million; and

(xxi)the incurrence by the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries of additional Indebtedness in an aggregate principal amount (or accreted value, as applicable) at any time outstanding under this clause (xxi), including all Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness incurred to renew, refund, refinance, replace, defease or discharge any Indebtedness incurred pursuant to this clause (xxi), not to exceed $15 million, provided, however, that if the Cripple Creek Expansion Opening Date occurs by the Cripple Creek Expansion Opening Deadline, the amount of Indebtedness permitted by this clause (xxi) shall be $25.0 million; provided, further, that Indebtedness under this clause (xxi) may be designated as Parity Lien Debt (but not Priority Lien Debt).

The Borrower will not incur, and will not permit any Guarantor to incur, any Indebtedness (including Permitted Debt) that is contractually subordinated in right of payment to any other Indebtedness of the Borrower or such Guarantor, unless such Indebtedness is also contractually subordinated in right of payment to the Obligations and the applicable Guaranties on substantially identical terms; provided, however, that no Indebtedness will be deemed to be contractually subordinated in right of payment to any other Indebtedness of the Borrower solely by virtue of the provisions of the Collateral Trust Agreement or by virtue of being unsecured or by virtue of being secured on a senior, parity or junior Lien basis.

For purposes of determining compliance with this “Indebtedness” covenant, in the event that an item of proposed Indebtedness meets the criteria of more than one of the categories of Permitted Debt described in clauses (i) through (xxi) above, the Borrower will be permitted to classify such item of Indebtedness on the date of its incurrence, in any manner that complies with this covenant.  The accrual of interest, the accretion or amortization of original issue discount and the payment of interest on any Indebtedness in the form of additional Indebtedness with the same terms will not be deemed to be an incurrence of Indebtedness for purposes of this covenant; provided, in each such case, that the amount of any such accrual, accretion or payment is included in Fixed Charges of the Borrower as accrued.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this covenant, the maximum amount of Indebtedness that the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries may incur pursuant to this covenant shall not be deemed to be exceeded solely as a result of fluctuations in exchange rates or currency values.

The amount of any Indebtedness outstanding as of any date will be: (1) the accreted value of the Indebtedness, in the case of any Indebtedness issued with original issue discount; (2) the principal amount of the Indebtedness (including the accrued amount of any interest payable-in-kind), in the case of any other Indebtedness; (3) in the case of a Guarantee of Indebtedness, the maximum amount of the Indebtedness guaranteed under such Guarantee; and (4) in respect of Indebtedness of another Person secured by a Lien on the assets of the specified Person, the lesser of (a) the Fair Market Value of such assets at the date of determination and (b) the amount of the Indebtedness of the other Person.

(c)Merger, Consolidation or Disposition.  The Borrower shall not, directly or indirectly (1) consolidate or merge with or into or wind up into another Person (whether or not the Borrower is the surviving Person); or (2) sell, assign, transfer, convey or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of the properties or assets of the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries taken as a whole (without giving effect to any property or assets of any Unrestricted Subsidiary), in one or more related transactions, to another Person, unless:

(i)either: (a) the Borrower is the surviving Person; or (b) the Person formed by or surviving any such consolidation or merger (if other than the Borrower) or to which such sale, assignment, transfer, conveyance or other disposition shall have been made is a corporation organized or existing under the laws of the United States, any state thereof or the District of Columbia (the “Surviving Entity”);

(ii)the Surviving Entity (if other than the Borrower) assumes all the Obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement, the other Loan Documents and the Secured Debt Documents pursuant to agreements executed and delivered to the Administrative Agent;

(iii)immediately after such transaction no Default or Event of Default exists;

(iv)the transaction would not result in the loss, suspension or material impairment of any Gaming License unless a comparable replacement Gaming License is effective prior to or simultaneously with the loss, suspension or material impairment;

(v)the Surviving Entity:

106


(A)will have Consolidated Net Worth immediately after the transaction equal to or greater than the Consolidated Net Worth of the Borrower immediately preceding the transaction; and

(B)will, on the date of such transaction after giving pro forma effect thereto and any related financing transactions as if the same had occurred at the beginning of the applicable four-quarter period, be permitted to incur at least $1.00 of additional Indebtedness pursuant to the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio test set forth in the first paragraph of Section 7.02(b);

(vi)such transaction would not require any holder or beneficial owner of the notes to obtain a Gaming License or be qualified or found suitable under the law of any applicable gaming jurisdiction; provided that such holder or beneficial owner of the notes would not have been required to obtain a Gaming License or be qualified or found suitable under the laws of any applicable gaming jurisdiction in the absence of such transaction;

(vii) the Collateral owned by the Surviving Entity will (a) continue to constitute Collateral under this Agreement and the Secured Debt Documents and (b) not be subject to any other Lien, other than Permitted Liens;

(viii)to the extent any assets of the Person which is merged or consolidated with or into the Surviving Entity are assets of the type which would constitute Collateral under the Secured Debt Documents, the Surviving Entity will take such action as may be reasonably necessary to cause such property and assets to be made subject to the Lien of the Secured Debt Documents in the manner and to the extent required in this Agreement or any of the Secured Debt Documents and shall take all reasonably necessary action so that such Lien is perfected to the extent required by the Secured Debt Documents; and

(ix)the Borrower shall have delivered to the Administrative Agent an officer’s certificate and an opinion of counsel, each stating that such consolidation, merger or transfer and such supplemental agreements comply with this Agreement and all conditions precedent have been satisfied.

No Guarantor may, directly or indirectly, consolidate or merge with or into another Person (whether or not such Guarantor is the surviving corporation) unless:

(i)either: (a) the Guarantor is the surviving Person; or (b) the Person formed by or surviving any such consolidation or merger (if other than the Guarantor) is a corporation organized or existing under the laws of the United States, any state thereof or the District of Columbia (the “Surviving Guarantor Entity”);

(ii)the Surviving Guarantor Entity (if other than the Guarantor) assumes all the Obligations of the Guarantor under its Guaranty, this Agreement and the Secured Debt Documents pursuant to agreements executed and delivered to the Administrative Agent;

(iii)immediately after such transaction no Default or Event of Default exists;

107

(v)the Borrower:

(A)will have Consolidated Net Worth immediately after the transaction equal to or greater than the Consolidated Net Worth of the Borrower immediately preceding the transaction; and

(B)will, on the date of such transaction after giving pro forma effect thereto and any related financing transactions as if the same had occurred at the beginning of the applicable four-quarter period, be permitted to incur at least $1.00 of additional Indebtedness pursuant to the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio test set forth in the first paragraph of Section 7.02(b);

(vi)such transaction would not require any holder or beneficial owner of the notes to obtain a Gaming License or be qualified or found suitable under the law of any applicable gaming jurisdiction; provided that such holder or beneficial owner of the notes would not have been required to obtain a Gaming License or be qualified or found suitable under the laws of any applicable gaming jurisdiction in the absence of such transaction;

(vii)the Collateral owned by the Surviving Guarantor Entity will (a) continue to constitute Collateral under this Agreement and the Secured Debt Documents and (b) not be subject to any other Lien, other than Permitted Liens;

(viii)to the extent any assets of the Person which is merged or consolidated with or into the Surviving Guarantor Entity are assets of the type which would constitute Collateral under the Secured Debt Documents, the Surviving Guarantor Entity will take such action as may be reasonably necessary to cause such property and assets to be made subject to the Lien of the Secured Debt Documents in the manner and to the extent required in this Agreement or any of the Secured Debt Documents and shall take all reasonably necessary action so that such Lien is perfected to the extent required by the Secured Debt Documents; and

(ix)the Borrower shall have delivered to the Administrative Agent an officer’s certificate and an opinion of counsel, each stating that such consolidation, merger or transfer and such supplemental agreements comply with this Agreement and all conditions precedent have been satisfied.

In the event of:

(x)a sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of any Guarantor, by way of merger, consolidation or otherwise; or

(y)a sale or other disposition of all of the Equity Interests of any Guarantor, in each case to a Person which is not the Borrower or a Restricted Subsidiary or an Affiliate of the Borrower;

108


then such Guarantor (in the event of a sale or other disposition, by way of such a merger, consolidation or otherwise, of all of the Equity Interests of such Guarantor) or the Person acquiring the property (in the event of a sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of such Guarantor) will be released and relieved of any obligations under its Guaranty and this Agreement; provided that:

(1)the Net Cash Proceeds of such sale or other disposition are applied in accordance with Section 2.05(c); and

(2)all obligations of such Guarantor under all of its guarantees of, and under all of its pledges of assets or other Liens which secure, Indebtedness of the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, shall also terminate.

This Section 7.02(c) will not apply to a sale, assignment, transfer, conveyance or other disposition of assets solely between or among the Borrower and any of its Restricted Subsidiaries that is a Guarantor.

(d)Change in Nature of Business.  Make, or permit any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to make, any change in the nature of its business conducted by any of them on the Effective Date other than to the extent a Permitted Business.

(e)Dispositions.  Consummate or permit any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to consummate a Disposition other than a Permitted Disposition unless:

(1)the Borrower (or the Restricted Subsidiary, as the case may be) receives consideration at the time of the Disposition at least equal to the Fair Market Value of the assets sold or otherwise disposed of;

(2) at least 75% of the consideration received in the Disposition by the Borrower or such Restricted Subsidiary of the Borrower is in the form of cash.  For purposes of this provision, each of the following will be deemed to be cash:

(a) any liabilities (as shown on the Borrower’s most recent consolidated balance sheet prepared in accordance with GAAP) of the Borrower or any of the Borrower’s Restricted Subsidiaries (other than contingent liabilities and liabilities that are by their terms subordinated to the Obligations or any Guarantee thereof) that are assumed by the transferee of any such assets pursuant to a customary novation agreement that unconditionally releases the Borrower or such Restricted Subsidiary of the Borrower from further liability; and

(b) any securities, notes or other obligations received by the Borrower or any such Restricted Subsidiary of the Borrower from such transferee that are contemporaneously, subject to ordinary settlement periods, converted by the Borrower or such Restricted Subsidiary into cash, to the extent of the cash received in that conversion; and

(3)no Event of Default then exists or would result therefrom.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 7.02(e), the Net Cash Proceeds of Dispositions (other than Permitted Dispositions) shall be subject to Section 2.05(c).

109


(f)Restricted Payments.  Directly or indirectly: (1) declare or pay any dividend or make any other payment or distribution on account of the Borrower’s or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries’ Equity Interests (including, without limitation, any payment in connection with any merger or consolidation involving the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries) or to the direct or indirect holders of the Borrower’s or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries’ Equity Interests in their capacity as such (other than dividends or distributions payable in Equity Interests (other than Disqualified Equity Interests) of the Borrower and other than dividends or distributions payable to the Borrower or a Restricted Subsidiary of the Borrower); (2) purchase, redeem or otherwise acquire or retire for value (including, without limitation, in connection with any merger or consolidation involving the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries) any Equity Interests of the Borrower or any direct or indirect parent of the Borrower; (3) make any payment on or with respect to, or purchase, redeem, defease or otherwise acquire or retire for value, any Indebtedness of the Borrower or any Guarantor that is contractually subordinated to the Obligations (excluding any intercompany Indebtedness between or among the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries), except a payment of interest or principal at the Stated Maturity thereof or a purchase, repurchase, or other acquisition of Indebtedness subordinated in right of payment to the Obligations made in contemplation of satisfying a sinking fund obligation, principal installment or final maturity, in each case due within one year of the date of such purchase, redemption or other acquisition; or (4) make any Restricted Investment (all such payments and other actions set forth in clauses (1) through (4) above being collectively referred to as “Restricted Payments”), unless, after the Cripple Creek Expansion Opening Date, at the time of and after giving effect to such Restricted Payment:

(a) no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or would occur as a consequence of such Restricted Payment;

(b) the Borrower would, at the time of such Restricted Payment, and after giving pro forma effect to such Restricted Payment as if such Restricted Payment had been made at the beginning of the applicable four-quarter period, have a Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio of at least 2.0 to 1.0; and

(c) such Restricted Payment, together with the aggregate amount of all other Restricted Payments made by the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries since the Effective Date (excluding Restricted Payments permitted by clause (1) of the second paragraph of this Section 7.02(f)), is less than the sum, without duplication, of:

(i) 50% of the Consolidated Net Income of the Borrower for the period (taken as one accounting period) for the period beginning on the first day of the first fiscal quarter following the closing of the sale of the notes to the end of the Borrower’s most recently ended fiscal quarter for which financial statements of the Borrower are available at the time of such Restricted Payment (or, if such Consolidated Net Income for such period is a deficit, less 100% of such deficit); plus

The amount of all Restricted Payments (other than cash) will be the Fair Market Value on the date of the Restricted Payment of the asset(s) or securities proposed to be transferred or issued by the Borrower or such Restricted Subsidiary of the Borrower, as the case may be, pursuant to the Restricted Payment.  The Fair Market Value of any assets or securities that are required to be valued by this covenant will be determined by the Board of Directors of the Borrower, whose resolution with respect thereto will be delivered to the Administrative Agent.

(ii)amend, modify or otherwise change any of its Governing Documents (including, without limitation, by the filing or modification of any certificate of designation, or any agreement or arrangement entered into by it), or enter into any new agreement with respect to any of its Equity Interests, in any case, in a manner that is materially adverse to the interests of the Lenders.

(b)The Administrative Agent may, upon any term or condition it specifies, delegate or exercise any of its rights, powers and remedies under, and delegate or perform any of its duties or any other action with respect to, any Loan Document by or through any trustee, co-agent, employee, attorney-in-fact and any other Person (including any Lender).  Any such Person shall benefit from this Article X to the extent provided by the Administrative Agent.

120


action based thereon, except for their own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent (i) may treat the payee of any Revolving Loan as the owner thereof until the Administrative Agent receives written notice of the assignment or transfer thereof, pursuant to Section 12.07 hereof, signed by such payee and in form satisfactory to the Administrative Agent; (ii) may consult with legal counsel (including, without limitation, counsel to any Agent or counsel to the Loan Parties), independent public accountants, and other experts selected by any of them and shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken in good faith by any of them in accordance with the advice of such counsel or experts; (iii) make no warranty or representation to any Lender and shall not be responsible to any Lender for any statements, certificates, warranties or representations made in or in connection with this Agreement or the other Loan Documents; (iv) shall not have any duty to ascertain or to inquire as to the performance or observance of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents on the part of any Person, the existence or possible existence of any Default or Event of Default, or to inspect the Collateral or other property (including, without limitation, the books and records) of any Person; (v) shall not be responsible to any Lender for the due execution, legality, validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto or thereto; and (vi) shall not be deemed to have made any representation or warranty regarding the existence, value or collectability of the Collateral, the existence, priority or perfection of the Collateral Trustee’s Lien thereon, or any certificate prepared by any Loan Party in connection therewith, nor shall the Agents be responsible or liable to the Lenders for any failure to monitor or maintain any portion of the Collateral.  The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible or have any liability for, or have any duty to ascertain, inquire into, monitor the list or identities of, or enforce compliance with the provisions hereof relating to Disqualifications.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent shall not (x) be obligated to ascertain, monitor or inquire as to whether any Lender or participant or prospective Lender or participant is subject to a Disqualification or (y) have any liability with respect to or arising out of any assignment or participation of Revolving Loans, or disclosure of confidential information, to any Person that is subject to a Disqualification.  The Administrative Agent shall not be liable for any apportionment or distribution of payments made in good faith pursuant to Section 4.03, and if any such apportionment or distribution is subsequently determined to have been made in error, and the sole recourse of any Lender to whom payment was due but not made shall be to recover from other Lenders any payment in excess of the amount which they are determined to be entitled.  The Administrative Agent may at any time request instructions from the Lenders with respect to any actions or approvals which by the terms of this Agreement or of any of the other Loan Documents the Administrative Agent is permitted or required to take or to grant, and if such instructions are promptly requested, the Administrative Agent shall be absolutely entitled to refrain from taking any action or to withhold any approval under any of the Loan Documents until it shall have received such instructions from the Required Lenders.  Without limiting the foregoing, no Lender shall have any right of action whatsoever against the Administrative Agent as a result of such Agent acting or refraining from acting under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents in accordance with the instructions of the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be expressly provided for herein or in the other Loan Documents).

121


Section 10.04Reliance.  The Administrative Agent shall, without incurring any liability hereunder, be entitled to rely upon any written notices, statements, certificates, orders or other documents or any telephone message believed by it in good faith to be genuine and correct and to have been signed, sent or made by the proper Person, and with respect to all matters pertaining to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents and its duties hereunder or thereunder, upon advice of counsel selected by it.

Section 10.05Indemnification.  To the extent that the Administrative Agent or the Issuing Lender is not reimbursed and indemnified by any Loan Party, and whether or not such Agent or the Issuing Lender has made demand on any Loan Party for the same, the Lenders will, within five days of written demand by such Agent or the Issuing Lender, reimburse such Agent and the Issuing Lender for and indemnify such Agent and the Issuing Lender from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses (including, without limitation, client charges and expenses of counsel or any other advisor to such Agent or the Issuing Lender), advances or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by, or asserted against such Agent or the Issuing Lender in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents or any action taken or omitted by such Agent or the Issuing Lender under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, in proportion to each Lender’s Pro Rata Share, including, without limitation, advances and disbursements made pursuant to Section 10.08; provided, however, that no Lender shall be liable for any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses, advances or disbursements for which there has been a final non-appealable judicial determination that such liability resulted from such Agent’s or the Issuing Lender’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.  The obligations of the Lenders under this Section 10.05 shall survive the payment in full of the Revolving Loans and the termination of this Agreement.

Section 10.06Agents Individually.  With respect to its Pro Rata Share of the Total Revolving Credit Commitment hereunder and the Revolving Loans made by it, the Administrative Agent (solely in its capacity as a Lender) shall have and may exercise the same rights and powers hereunder and is subject to the same obligations and liabilities as and to the extent set forth herein for any other Lender or maker of a Revolving Loan.  The terms “Lenders” or “Required Lenders” or any similar terms shall, unless the context clearly otherwise indicates, include the Administrative Agent in its individual capacity as a Lender or one of the Required Lenders.  Each Agent and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, and generally engage in any kind of banking, trust or other business with the Borrower as if it were not acting as the Administrative Agent pursuant hereto without any duty to account to the other Lenders.
