Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Amendment to Credit Agreement

On October 23, 2017, Horizon Pharma, Inc. (“HPI”) and Horizon Pharma USA, Inc. (“HPUI” and, together with HPI, in such capacity, the “Borrowers”), wholly-owned subsidiaries of Horizon Pharma plc, a public limited company organized under the laws of Ireland (“Parent” or the “Company”), borrowed $845,750,000 aggregate principal amount of loans (the “Refinancing Loans”) pursuant to an amendment (the “Refinancing Amendment”) to the Credit Agreement, dated as of May 7, 2015 (as amended by Amendment No. 1, dated October 25, 2016, and Amendment No. 2, dated March 29, 2017), by and among HPI, HPUI, the Company, certain subsidiaries of the Company party thereto as subsidiary guarantors, the lenders party thereto from time to time and Citibank, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent (as amended by the Refinancing Amendment, the “Credit Agreement”). The Refinancing Loans were incurred as a separate new class of term loans under the Credit Agreement with substantially the same terms as the previously outstanding senior secured term loans incurred on March 29, 2017 (the “Refinanced Loans”) to effectuate a repricing of the Refinanced Loans. The Borrowers used the proceeds of the Refinancing Loans to repay the Refinanced Loans, which totaled $845,750,000. The Credit Agreement provides for (i) the Refinancing Loans, (ii) one or more uncommitted additional incremental loan facilities subject to the satisfaction of certain financial and other conditions, and (iii) one or more uncommitted refinancing loan facilities with respect to loans thereunder. The Credit Agreement allows for the Parent and certain other subsidiaries of the Parent to become borrowers under incremental or refinancing facilities.

The obligations under the Credit Agreement (including obligations in respect of the Refinancing Loans) and any swap obligations and cash management obligations owing to a lender (or an affiliate of a lender) thereunder are guaranteed by the Company and each of the Company’s existing and subsequently acquired or formed direct and indirect subsidiaries (other than certain immaterial subsidiaries, subsidiaries whose guarantee would result in material adverse tax consequences and subsidiaries whose guarantee is prohibited by applicable law). The obligations under the Credit Agreement (including obligations in respect of the Refinancing Loans) and any such swap and cash management obligations are secured, subject to customary permitted liens and other agreed upon exceptions, by a perfected security interest in (i) all tangible and intangible assets of the Borrowers and the guarantors, except for certain customary excluded assets, and (ii) all of the capital stock owned by the Borrowers and guarantors thereunder (limited, in the case of the stock of certain non-U.S. subsidiaries of the Borrowers, to 65% of the capital stock of such subsidiaries). The Borrowers and the guarantors under the Credit Agreement are individually and collectively referred to herein as a “Loan Party” and the “Loan Parties,” as applicable.

Borrowers under the Credit Agreement are permitted to make voluntary prepayments of the loans under the Credit Agreement at any time without payment of a premium, except that with respect to the Refinancing Loans, a 1% premium will apply to a repayment of the Refinancing Loans in connection with a repricing of, or any amendment to the Credit Agreement in a repricing of, such loans effected on or prior to the date that is six months following October 23, 2017. The applicable Borrowers are required to make mandatory prepayments of loans under the Credit Agreement (without payment of a premium) with (a) net cash proceeds from certain non-ordinary course asset sales (subject to reinvestment rights and other exceptions), (b) casualty proceeds and condemnation awards (subject to reinvestment rights and other exceptions), (c) net cash proceeds from issuances of debt (other than certain permitted debt), and (d) 50% of the Company’s excess cash flow (subject to decrease to 25% or 0% if the Company’s first lien leverage ratio is less than 2.25:1 or 1.75:1, respectively). The Refinancing Loans will amortize in equal quarterly installments beginning on December 31, 2017 in an aggregate annual amount equal to 1% of the original principal amount of the Refinanced Loans (i.e. $850,000,000), with any remaining balance payable on March 29, 2024, the final maturity date of the Refinancing Loans.

The interest rate applicable to the Refinancing Loans is LIBOR plus 3.25%, subject to a LIBOR floor of 1.0%.

The Credit Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and customary affirmative and negative covenants, including, among other things, restrictions on indebtedness, liens, investments, mergers, dispositions, prepayment of other indebtedness and dividends and other distributions.

Events of default under the Credit Agreement include: (i) the failure by any Borrower to timely make payments due under the Credit Agreement; (ii) material misrepresentations or misstatements in any representation or warranty by any Loan Party when made; (iii) failure by any Loan Party to comply with the covenants under the Credit Agreement and other related agreements; (iv) certain defaults under a specified amount of other indebtedness of the Company or its subsidiaries; (v) insolvency or bankruptcy-related events with respect to the Company or any of its material subsidiaries; (vi) certain undischarged judgments against the Company or any of its restricted subsidiaries; (vii) certain ERISA-related events reasonably expected to have a material adverse effect on the Company and its restricted subsidiaries taken as a whole; (viii) certain security interests or liens under the loan documents ceasing to be, or being asserted by the Company or its restricted subsidiaries not to be, in full force and effect; (ix) any loan document or material provision thereof ceasing to be, or any challenge or assertion by any Loan Party that such loan document or material provision is not, in full force and effect; and (x) the occurrence of a change of control. If one or more events of default occurs and continues beyond any applicable cure period, the administrative agent may, with the consent of the lenders holding a majority of the loans and commitments under the facilities, or will, at the request of such lenders, terminate the commitments of the lenders to make further loans and declare all of the obligations of the Loan Parties under the Credit Agreement to be immediately due and payable.

Agreement or any of the Loan Documents. Except as expressly set forth herein, (i) this Amendment shall not by implication or otherwise limit, impair, constitute a waiver of or otherwise affect the rights and remedies of the Lenders, the Administrative Agent or any other Agent, in each case under the Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document, and (ii) shall not alter, modify, amend or in any way affect any of the terms, conditions, obligations, covenants or agreements contained in the Credit Agreement or any other provision of either such agreement or any other Loan Document. Each and every term, condition, obligation, covenant and agreement contained in the Amended Credit Agreement and each other Loan Document is hereby ratified and re-affirmed in all respects and shall continue in full force and effect. Each Loan Party reaffirms its obligations under the Loan Documents to which it is party and reaffirms and confirms the validity of its guarantees pursuant to the Guaranty and its grant of Liens to secure the Secured Obligations pursuant to the Loan Documents. This Amendment shall constitute a Loan Document for purposes of the Amended Credit Agreement and, from and after the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date, (x) all references to the Credit Agreement or Amended Credit Agreement in any Loan Document and all references in the Credit Agreement or Amended Credit Agreement to “this Agreement”, “hereunder”, “hereof” or words of like import referring to the Credit Agreement, shall, unless expressly provided otherwise, refer to the Amended Credit Agreement and (y) all references to any other Loan Document amended hereby in any Loan Document and all references in such Loan Document to “this Agreement”, “hereunder”, “hereof” or words of like import referring to such Loan Document, shall, unless expressly provided otherwise, refer to such Loan Document as amended by this Amendment. Each of the Loan Parties hereby (i) consents to this Amendment, (ii) confirms that all obligations of such Loan Party under the Loan Documents to which such Loan Party is a party shall continue to apply including in each case, such obligations pursuant to the Amended Credit Agreement and (iii) reaffirms its prior grant and validity of the security interests pursuant to any Loan Document and agrees that all such security interests shall secure the Secured Obligations (including without limitation, the Third Amendment Refinancing Term Loans). Neither the modification of the Credit Agreement effected pursuant to this Amendment nor the execution, delivery, performance or effectiveness of this Amendment and the Amended Credit Agreement impairs the validity, effectiveness or priority of the Liens granted pursuant to any Loan Document, and after giving effect to this Amendment, such Liens continue unimpaired with the same priority to secure repayment of all Secured Obligations (including without limitation, the Third Amendment Refinancing Term Loans), whether heretofore or hereafter incurred.

Section 10. Submission to Jurisdiction; Waivers. Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally:

(a) submits, for itself and its property, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of the State of New York sitting in New York County and of the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York sitting in New York County, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Amendment or any other Loan Document, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be

heard and determined in such New York State or, to the extent permitted by law, in such Federal court;

(b) agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law;

(c) agrees that nothing herein shall affect any right that the Administrative Agent or any Lender may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Amendment or any other Loan Document against any Loan Party or its properties in the courts of any jurisdiction;

(d) irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent they may legally and effectively do so, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Amendment or any other Loan Document in any court referred to in paragraph (a) of this Section 10. Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court;

(e) consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 9.01 of the Amended Credit Agreement; and

(f) agrees that nothing herein will affect the right of any party to this Amendment to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.

Section 11. Waivers. Solely in connection with the repayment of Term Loans on the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date, the Administrative Agent and the Term Lenders delivering a Consent or an executed counterpart of this Amendment hereby waive any required notice of prepayment of Term Loans pursuant to the Credit Agreement. Each Term Lender delivering a Consent or an executed counterpart of this Amendment hereby irrevocably waives its right to receive any payments pursuant to Section 2.13 of the Credit Agreement arising as a result of its Term Loans being repaid or converted on the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date and not on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto.

WHEREAS, pursuant to Amendment No. 2,3, and upon satisfaction of the conditions set forth herein, the Original Credit Agreement is being amended in the form of this Agreement;

NOW, THEREFORE, the parties hereto agree as follows:

ARTICLE I

Definitions

ACH Indebtedness” means Indebtedness incurred in the ordinary course of business arising in connection with any automated clearinghouse transfers of funds or other payment processing service.

Acquisition” means the merger of the Target with and into Acquisition Sub as provided for in the Acquisition Agreement and the related transactions.

Acquisition Agreement” means the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated as of March 29, 2015 among Target, Borrower and Acquisition Sub (including, without limitation, all schedules and exhibits thereto), as the same may be altered, amended, changed, supplemented or with any provision or condition therein waived, in each case so long as all such alterations, amendments, changes, supplements and waivers meet the requirements of Section 4.01(j) (as measured against the Acquisition Agreement as in effect as of the date hereof).

Acquisition Consideration” means the aggregate consideration to be paid to consummate the Acquisition, exclusive of all fees and expenses.

Acquisition Documentation” means, collectively, the Acquisition Documents and all schedules, exhibits, annexes and amendments thereto, and all side letters and agreements affecting the terms thereof or entered into in connection therewith.

Acquisition Documents” means the Acquisition Agreement and any other documents executed or issued, or to be executed or issued, by or on behalf of the Target and/or Horizon in respect of the Acquisition (but excluding the Loan Documents).

Acquisition Sub” means Ghrian Acquisition Inc., a Delaware corporation, a wholly-owned Subsidiary of Horizon, to merge with Target on the Closing Date, with Acquisition Sub being the surviving entity of such merger.


Additional Borrower” means any one or more Guarantors designated by Irish Holdco as a borrower of any Incremental Loans hereunder or Other Refinancing Loans; provided however, that (i) only Guarantors organized under the laws of the Republic of Ireland, Luxembourg and/or a jurisdiction located in the United States may be designated by Irish Holdco as Additional Borrowers and (ii) notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, no Guarantor may be designated by Irish Holdco as an Additional Borrower hereunder to the extent such designation results in a material adverse tax consequence (including, for the avoidance of doubt, any withholding tax) on any existing Lender. For the avoidance of doubt, any Guarantor designated as an Additional Borrower shall cease to be an “Additional Borrower” upon the repayment of all Loans in respect of which such Guarantor was designated as an “Additional Borrower” and, unless designated as an Unrestricted Subsidiary in accordance with the terms herein, shall be deemed to be a Guarantor. HPUI was designated as an Additional Borrower (x) with respect to the Incremental Term B-1 Loans pursuant to Amendment No. 1 and1, (y) with respect to the Second Amendment Refinancing Term Loans pursuant to Amendment No. 2.2 and (z) with respect to the Third Amendment Refinancing Term Loans pursuant to Amendment No. 3.

Additional Lender” has the meaning assigned to such term in Section 2.17(a).

Adjusted LIBO Rate” means, with respect to any Eurocurrency Borrowing for any Interest Period, an interest rate per annum (rounded upwards, if necessary, to the next 1/16 of 1%) equal to the sum of (a) the LIBO Rate for such Interest Period multiplied by (b) the Statutory Reserve Rate.

Administrative Agent” means Citibank, N.A., in its capacity as administrative agent for the Lenders hereunder. As appropriate, references herein to the Administrative Agent shall include it acting in its capacity as Collateral Agent.

Administrative Questionnaire” means an Administrative Questionnaire in a form supplied by the Administrative Agent.

Agent Parties” has the meaning assigned to such term in Section 9.01(c).

Agents” has the meaning assigned to such term in Article VIII.

Agreed Currencies” means (i) Dollars, and (ii) any foreign currency agreed to by the Administrative Agent and each of the Lenders of the applicable Class of Loans.

Agreed Security Principles” means the Agreed Security Principles set forth on Schedule 1.01A. For the avoidance of doubt, the Agreed Security Principles shall only apply to Guarantees proposed to be granted by, assets of, and Equity Interests in, Irish Holdco and the Foreign Subsidiaries; provided that in no event shall the Agreed Security Principles limit or delay the requirement for the execution and delivery of, and maintenance of, the Foreign Security Documents required to be executed and delivered on or prior to the Closing Date pursuant to Section 4.01(f) and the taking of other steps as set forth in Section 4.01(e), subject to the penultimate paragraph of Section 4.01; provided, further, that notwithstanding the foregoing, Section (J) of the Agreed Security Principles shall apply to any non-U.S. intellectual property assets of any Loan Parties that are Domestic Subsidiaries.

(a) Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all terms of an accounting or financial nature shall be construed in accordance with GAAP, as in effect from time to time; provided that, if Irish Holdco notifies the Administrative Agent that Irish Holdco requests an amendment to any provision hereof to eliminate the effect of any change occurring after the Closing Date in GAAP or in the application thereof on the operation of such provision (or if the Administrative Agent notifies Irish Holdco that the Required Lenders request an amendment to any provision hereof for such purpose), regardless of whether any such notice is given before or after such change in GAAP or in the application thereof, then such provision shall be interpreted on the basis of GAAP as in effect and applied immediately before such change shall have become effective until such notice shall have been withdrawn or such provision amended in accordance herewith. At any time after the Closing Date, Irish Holdco may elect (by written notice to the Administrative Agent) to change its financial reporting (both hereunder and for its audited financial statements generally) from GAAP to International Financial Reporting Standards (as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board and the International Financial Reporting Standards Interpretations Committee and/or adopted by the European Union (“IFRS”)), as in effect from time to time, in which case all references herein to GAAP (except for historical financial statements theretofore prepared in accordance with GAAP) shall instead be deemed references to the IFRS and the related accounting standards as shown in the first set of audited financial statements prepared in accordance therewith and delivered pursuant to this Agreement; provided that, if Irish Holdco notifies the Administrative Agent that Irish Holdco requests an amendment to any provision hereof to eliminate the effect of any change occurring as a result of the adoption of IFRS or in the application thereof on the operation of such provision (or if the Administrative Agent notifies Irish Holdco that the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders request an amendment to any provision hereof for such purpose), then such provision shall be interpreted on the basis of GAAP as otherwise required above (and without

 

63


regard to this sentence) until such notice shall have been withdrawn or such provision amended in accordance herewith; provided further that, if, after the adoption of IFRS by Irish Holdco, Irish Holdco notifies the Administrative Agent that Irish Holdco requests an amendment to any provision hereof to eliminate the effect of any change in IFRS occurring after such adoption of IFRS or in the application thereof on the operation of such provision (or if the Administrative Agent notifies Irish Holdco that the Required Lenders request an amendment to any provision hereof for such purpose), regardless of whether any such notice is given before or after such change in IFRS or in the application thereof, then such provision shall be interpreted on the basis of IFRS as in effect and applied immediately before such change shall have become effective until such notice shall have been withdrawn or such provision amended in accordance herewith. Notwithstanding any other provision contained herein, all terms of an accounting or financial nature used herein shall be construed, and all computations of amounts and ratios referred to herein shall be made (i) without giving effect to any election under Accounting Standards Codification 825-10-25 (or any other Accounting Standards Codification or Financial Accounting Standard having a similar result or effect) to value any Indebtedness or other liabilities of Irish Holdco or any Subsidiary at “fair value”, as defined therein, (ii) without giving effect to any treatment of Indebtedness in respect of convertible debt instruments under Accounting Standards Codification 470-20 (or any other Accounting Standards Codification or Financial Accounting Standard having a similar result or effect) to value any such Indebtedness in a reduced or bifurcated manner as described therein, and such Indebtedness shall at all times be valued at the full stated principal amount thereof and (iii) for the avoidance of doubt, except as provided in the definition of “Consolidated Net Income”, without giving effect to the financial condition, results and performance of the Unrestricted Subsidiaries.

(b) Subject to clause (c) below, all pro forma computations required to be made hereunder giving effect to any Material Acquisition, Material Disposition, Permitted Acquisition, designation of any Subsidiary as an Unrestricted Subsidiary or Restricted Subsidiary, or issuance, incurrence or assumption of Indebtedness or otherwise shall be calculated after giving pro forma effect to such acquisition, disposition, designation or issuance, incurrence or assumption of Indebtedness or otherwise (and to any other such transaction consummated since the first day of the period for which such pro forma computation is being made and on or prior to the date of such computation) as if such transaction had occurred on the first day of the Test Period or, as applicable, the period of four consecutive fiscal quarters ending with the most recent fiscal quarter for which financial statements are available, and, to the extent applicable, the historical earnings and cash flows associated with the assets acquired or disposed of, any related incurrence or reduction of Indebtedness. All computations for any period ended prior to the first anniversary of the Closing Date shall be made on a pro forma basis as if the Transactions had been consummated on the first date of the relevant period. If any Indebtedness bears a floating rate of interest and is being given pro forma effect, the interest on such Indebtedness shall be calculated as if the rate in effect on the date of determination had been the applicable rate for the entire period (taking into account any Swap Agreement applicable to such Indebtedness).

(c) Whenever pro forma effect is to be given to a transaction, the pro forma calculations shall be made in good faith by a responsible financial or accounting officer of Irish Holdco, giving effect to (a) Pro Forma Synergies and (b) any cost savings that could then be reflected in pro forma financial statements in accordance with Regulation S-X promulgated under the Securities Act or any other regulation or policy of the SEC related thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in connection with any calculation under this Agreement required to be made on a pro forma basis at the time definitive agreements are entered into with respect to a Limited Condition Acquisition, such calculation shall be made on a pro forma basis (in accordance with clause (b) above except as expressly set forth herein) assuming that the applicable Limited Condition Acquisition (and all Indebtedness contemplated to be issued, incurred or assumed in connection therewith), as well as any other Limited Condition Acquisition with respect to which Irish Holdco or any Restricted Subsidiary is at such time contractually committed (as well as all Indebtedness contemplated in connection therewith), shall have been consummated.

Section 1.05 Status of Obligations and Secured Obligations. In the event that Irish Holdco or any other Loan Party shall at any time issue or have outstanding any Subordinated Indebtedness, Irish Holdco shall take or cause such other Loan Party to take all such actions as shall be necessary to cause the Secured Obligations to constitute senior indebtedness (however denominated) in respect of such Subordinated Indebtedness and to enable the Administrative Agent and the Lenders to have and exercise any payment blockage or other remedies available or potentially available to holders of senior indebtedness under the terms of such Subordinated Indebtedness. Without limiting the foregoing, the Secured Obligations are hereby designated as “senior indebtedness” and as “designated senior indebtedness” and words of similar import under and in respect of any indenture or other agreement or instrument under which any Subordinated Indebtedness is outstanding and are further given all such other designations as shall be required under the terms of any such Subordinated Indebtedness in order that the Lenders may have and exercise any payment blockage or other remedies available or potentially available to holders of senior indebtedness under the terms of such Subordinated Indebtedness.

Section 2.03 Requests for Borrowings. To request a Borrowing, the Applicable Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent of such request (a) by telephonic notice in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, three (3) Business Days before the date of the proposed Borrowing (or, with respect to Borrowings to be made on the Closing Date, such shorter time as the Administrative Agent may agree in its sole discretion) or (b) by telephonic notice in the case of an ABR Borrowing, not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, one (1) Business Day before the date of the proposed Borrowing. Each such telephonic Borrowing Request shall be irrevocable and shall be confirmed promptly by email to the Administrative Agent of a written Borrowing Request in a form approved by the Administrative Agent and signed by the Applicable Borrower; provided that in respect of the 2015 Term Loans to be borrowed on the Closing Date, the Incremental Term B-1 Loans to be borrowed on the Amendment No. 1 Effective Date, and the Second Amendment Refinancing Term Loans to be borrowed on the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date, and the Third Amendment Refinancing Term Loans to be borrowed on the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date, any written Borrowing Request may be provided by the Borrower on a conditional basis (provided that (1) to the extent the Borrower does not borrow any Eurocurrency Loans set forth in such conditional Borrowing Request, the Borrower shall be required to compensate the Lenders under Section 2.13 for the losses, costs or expenses related thereto and (2) any such Borrowing Request shall be irrevocable once funding of the Borrowings has been initiated by the Administrative Agent), and such Borrowing Request may be provided no later than 2:00 pm, New York City Time, on the Business Day prior to such Borrowing. Each telephonic and written Borrowing Request shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:

(a) the aggregate amount of the requested Borrowing;

(b) the date of such Borrowing, which shall be a Business Day;

(c) the Class of such Borrowing and whether such Borrowing is to be an ABR Borrowing or a Eurocurrency Borrowing;

(d) in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing, the initial Interest Period to be applicable thereto, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period”; and

(e) the location and number of the Applicable Borrower’s account to which funds are to be disbursed, which shall comply with the requirements of Section 2.04.

If no election as to the Type of Borrowing is specified, then the requested Borrowing shall be an ABR Borrowing. If no Interest Period is specified with respect to any requested Eurocurrency Borrowing, then the Applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration. Promptly following receipt of a Borrowing Request in accordance with this Section 2.03, the Administrative Agent shall advise each applicable Lender of the details thereof and of the amount of such Lender’s Loan to be made as part of the requested Borrowing.

Section 2.04 Funding of Borrowings. (a) Each Lender shall make each Loan to be made by it hereunder on the proposed date thereof by wire transfer of immediately available funds by 12:00 noon, New York City time, to the account of the Administrative Agent most recently designated by it for such purpose by notice to the Lenders. The Administrative Agent will make such Loans available to the Applicable Borrower by promptly crediting the amounts so received, in like funds, to an account of the Applicable Borrower maintained with the Administrative Agent in New York City or Chicago and designated by the Applicable Borrower in the applicable Borrowing Request.

 

67


(b) Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date in accordance with paragraph (a) of this Section 2.04 and may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Applicable Borrower a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing available to the Administrative Agent, then the applicable Lender and the Applicable Borrower severally agree to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to the Applicable Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of such Lender, the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation or (ii) in the case of an Applicable Borrower, the interest rate applicable to the relevant Class of ABR Loans. If such Lender pays such amount to the Administrative Agent, then such amount shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing.

Section 2.05 Interest Elections. (a) Each Borrowing initially shall be of the Type, and under the applicable Tranche, specified in the applicable Borrowing Request and, in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing, shall have an initial Interest Period as specified in such Borrowing Request. Thereafter, subject to clause (f) below, the Applicable Borrower may elect to convert such Borrowing to a different Type or to continue such Borrowing and, in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing, may elect Interest Periods therefor, all as provided in this Section 2.05. The Applicable Borrower may elect different options with respect to different portions of the affected Borrowing, in which case each such portion shall be allocated ratably among the Lenders holding the Loans comprising such Borrowing, and the Loans comprising each such portion shall be considered a separate Borrowing. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 2.05, the Applicable Borrower shall not be permitted to change the Tranche of any Borrowing, except as otherwise expressly contemplated by Section 2.19.

(b) To make an election pursuant to this Section 2.05, the Applicable Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent of such election (which may be made telephonically and followed by irrevocable written notice via an Interest Election Request in a form approved by the Administrative Agent and signed by the Applicable Borrower) by the time that a Borrowing Request would be required under Section 2.03 if the Applicable Borrower were requesting a Borrowing of the Type and Class resulting from such election to be made on the effective date of such election. Notwithstanding any contrary provision herein, this Section 2.05 shall not be construed to permit the Applicable Borrower to convert any Borrowing to a Borrowing of a Type not available under the Class of Commitments or the Tranche pursuant to which such Borrowing was made.

(c) Each telephonic and written Interest Election Request shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:

(i) the Borrowing to which such Interest Election Request applies and, if different options are being elected with respect to different portions thereof, the portions thereof to be allocated to each resulting Borrowing (in which case the information to be specified pursuant to clauses (iii) and (iv) below shall be specified for each resulting Borrowing);

(ii) the effective date of the election made pursuant to such Interest Election Request, which shall be a Business Day;

 

68


(iii) whether the resulting Borrowing is to be an ABR Borrowing or a Eurocurrency Borrowing; and

(iv) if the resulting Borrowing is a Eurocurrency Borrowing, the Interest Period to be applicable thereto after giving effect to such election, which Interest Period shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period”.

If any such Interest Election Request requests a Eurocurrency Borrowing but does not specify an Interest Period, then the Applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration.

(d) Promptly following receipt of an Interest Election Request, the Administrative Agent shall advise each applicable Lender of the details thereof and of such Lender’s portion of each resulting Borrowing.

(e) If the Applicable Borrower fails to deliver a timely Interest Election Request with respect to a Eurocurrency Borrowing prior to the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, then, unless such Borrowing is repaid as provided herein, at the end of such Interest Period, such Borrowing shall be continued as a Eurocurrency Borrowing with a one month Interest Period. Notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent, at the request of the Required Lenders, so notifies the Applicable Borrower, then, so long as an Event of Default is continuing (i) no outstanding Borrowing may be converted to or continued as a Eurocurrency Borrowing and (ii) unless repaid, each Eurocurrency Borrowing shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto.

Section 2.06 Termination and Reduction of Commitments. (a) Unless previously terminated, (i) the 2015 Term Loan Commitment of each 2015 Term Lender shall automatically and permanently terminate at 5:00 PM, New York City time, on the Closing Date (after giving effect to the incurrence of 2015 Term Loans on such date), (ii) the Incremental Term B-1 Commitment of each Incremental Term B-1 Lender shall automatically and permanently terminate at 5:00 PM, New York City time, on the Amendment No. 1 Effective Date (after giving effect to the incurrence of Incremental Term B-1 Loans on such date) and , (iii) the Second Amendment Refinancing Commitment of each Second Amendment Refinancing Term Lender shall automatically and permanently terminate at 5:00 PM, New York City time, on the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date (after giving effect to the incurrence of Second Amendment Refinancing Term Loans on such date) and (iv) the Third Amendment Refinancing Commitment of each Third Amendment Refinancing Term Lender shall automatically and permanently terminate at 5:00 PM, New York City time, on the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date (after giving effect to the incurrence of Third Amendment Refinancing Term Loans on such date).

(b) The Applicable Borrower may at any time terminate, or from time to time reduce, the Commitments of any Class; provided that each reduction of such Commitments shall be in an amount that is an integral multiple of $5,000,000 and not less than $10,000,000.

(c) The Applicable Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent of any election to terminate or reduce the Commitments of any Class under paragraph (b) of this Section 2.06 at least three (3) Business Days prior to the effective date of such termination or reduction, specifying such election and the effective date thereof. Promptly following receipt of any notice, the Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of the contents thereof. Each notice delivered by the Applicable Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.06 shall be irrevocable; provided that a notice of termination of the Commitments of any Class delivered by the Applicable Borrower may state that such notice is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities or one or more other events specified therein,

 

69


in which case such notice may be revoked by the Applicable Borrower (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified effective date) if such condition is not satisfied.

Thereafter, the Loans evidenced by such promissory notes and interest thereon shall at all times (including after assignment pursuant to Section 9.04) be represented by one or more promissory notes in such form payable to the payee named therein (or, if such promissory note is a registered note, to such payee and its registered assigns).

(2) in the case of any event described in clause (1) or (2) of the definition of the term “Prepayment Event”, if Irish Holdco shall deliver to the Administrative Agent a certificate of a Financial Officer to the effect that Irish Holdco or its Restricted Subsidiaries intend to apply the Net Proceeds from such event (or a portion thereof specified in such certificate), within 365 days after receipt of such Net Proceeds, to consummate a Permitted Acquisition or to otherwise acquire (or replace or rebuild) real property, equipment or other tangible assets (excluding inventory) to be used in the business of Irish Holdco and/or its Restricted Subsidiaries, and certifying that no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, then no prepayment shall be required pursuant to this paragraph in respect of the Net Proceeds specified in such certificate; provided, further, that to the extent of any such Net Proceeds therefrom that have not been so applied by the end of such 365 day period (or committed to be applied by the end of the 365 day period and applied within 180 days after the end of such 365 day period), at which time a prepayment shall be required in an amount equal to such Net Proceeds that have not been so applied (subject to clause (ii) above); or

(ii) the Borrower, any Additional Borrower or any New Notes Issuer incurs, issues or obtains any Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness (other than solely by means of extending or renewing then existing Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness without resulting in any Net Proceeds), the Applicable Borrower shall, on the date on which such Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness is incurred, issued or obtained, prepay any Loans constituting the applicable Refinanced Debt as set forth in Section 2.08(c)(ii) below in an aggregate amount equal to 100% of the Net Proceeds of such Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness; and

(iii) no later than five business days after the date on which the financial statements with respect to such fiscal year in which such Excess Cash Flow Period occurs are delivered pursuant to Section 5.01(a), the Borrower shall make prepayments of the SecondThird Amendment Refinancing Term Loans and any other Term Loans (unless otherwise provided in any Incremental Amendment or Refinancing Amendment) in accordance with Sections 2.08(c) in an aggregate principal amount equal to (x) if the First Lien Leverage Ratio at the end of such period is greater than or equal to 2.25:1.00 (but excluding, for purposes of such calculation, the proceeds of any Incremental Loans or any other Indebtedness incurred on such date in the calculation of the Unrestricted Cash), (A) 50% of Excess Cash Flow for the Excess Cash Flow Period then ended minus (B) the aggregate principal amount of any Term Loans prepaid pursuant to Section 2.08(a) during such Excess Cash Flow Period (and in the case of the first Excess Cash Flow Period after the Closing Date, during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015); (y) if the First Lien Leverage Ratio at the end of such period is less than 2.25:1.00 but greater than 1.75:1.00 (but excluding, for purposes of such calculation, the proceeds of any Incremental Loans or any other Indebtedness incurred on such date in the calculation of the Unrestricted Cash), (A) 25% of Excess Cash

 

72


Flow for the Excess Cash Flow Period then ended minus (B) the aggregate principal amount of any Term Loans prepaid pursuant to Section 2.08(a) during such Excess Cash Flow Period (and in the case of the first Excess Cash Flow Period after the Closing Date, during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015) and (z) if the First Lien Leverage Ratio at the end of such period is less than or equal to 1.75:1.00 (but excluding, for purposes of such calculation, the proceeds of any Incremental Loans or any other Indebtedness incurred on such date in the calculation of the Unrestricted Cash), 0% of Excess Cash Flow for the Excess Cash Flow Period then ended.

(c) Subject to Section 2.08(d) below and except as specified in any Extension Amendment, Incremental Amendment or Refinancing Amendment (with respect to the applicable Extended Loans or Incremental Loans or the Loans incurred pursuant to such Refinancing Amendment), (i) all such amounts pursuant to Section 2.08(b)(i) and (iii) shall be applied (A) to prepay remaining Term Loans on a pro rata basis first in direct order of maturity of the remaining scheduled installments to be made on each Term Loan Repayment Date for the 24 months following the relevant prepayment event and second on a pro rata basis among the remaining scheduled installments to be made on each Term Loan Repayment Date with respect to such Tranche of Term Loans (with each Tranche of Term Loans to receive its pro rata share of the payments pursuant to this clause (c) based on the relative outstanding principal amounts thereof) or (B) if there are no scheduled installments with respect to such Tranche of Term Loan, to reduce the final bullet amount due on maturity of such Tranche of Term Loan, and (ii) all such amounts pursuant to Section 2.08(b)(ii) shall be applied to prepay an aggregate principal amount of the applicable Loans constituting Refinanced Debt equal to the Net Proceeds of the applicable Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness.

(d) The Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent in writing of any mandatory prepayment of Term Loans required to be made pursuant to Section 2.08(b)(i) and (iii) at least five (5) Business Days prior to the date of such prepayment. Each such notice shall specify the date of such prepayment and provide a reasonably detailed calculation of the amount of such prepayment. The Administrative Agent will promptly notify each Term Lender of the contents of any such prepayment notice and of such Term Lender’s ratable portion of such prepayment (based on such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of each relevant Tranche of the Term Loans). Any Term Lender (a “Declining Term Lender,” and any Term Lender which is not a Declining Term Lender, an “Accepting Term Lender”) may elect, by delivering written notice to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower no later than 5:00 p.m. one (1) Business Day after the date of such Term Lender’s receipt of notice from the Administrative Agent regarding such prepayment, that the full amount of any mandatory prepayment otherwise required to be made with respect to the Term Loans held by such Term Lender pursuant to Section 2.08(b)(i) and (iii) not be made (the aggregate amount of such prepayments declined by the Declining Term Lenders, the “Declined Prepayment Amount”); provided however that a Term Lender may not decline a prepayment made by the Borrower pursuant to any event described in clause (3) of the term “Prepayment Event”. If a Term Lender fails to deliver notice setting forth such rejection of a prepayment to the Administrative Agent within the time frame specified above or such notice fails to specify the principal amount of the Term Loans to be rejected, any such failure will be deemed an acceptance of the total amount of such mandatory prepayment of Term Loans. In the event that the Declined Prepayment Amount is greater than $0, the Administrative Agent will promptly notify each Accepting Term Lender of the amount of such Declined Prepayment Amount and of any such Accepting Term Lender’s ratable portion of such Declined Prepayment Amount (based on such Lender’s Applicable Percentage in respect of the Term Loans (excluding the Applicable Percentage of Declining Term Lenders), as applicable). Any such Accepting Term Lender may elect, by delivering, no later than 5:00 p.m. one (1) Business Day after the date of such Accepting Term Lender’s receipt of notice from the Administrative Agent regarding such additional prepayment, a written notice, that such Accepting Term Lender’s ratable portion of such Declined Prepayment Amount not be applied to repay such Accepting Term Lender’s Term Loans, in which case the portion of such Declined Prepayment Amount which

 

73


would otherwise have been applied to such Term Loans of the Declining Term Lenders shall instead be retained by the Borrower. Each Term Lender’s ratable portion of such Declined Prepayment Amount (unless declined by the respective Term Lender as described in the preceding sentence) shall be applied to the respective Term Loans of such Lenders. For the avoidance of doubt, the Borrower may, at its option, apply any amounts retained in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence to prepay loans in accordance with Section 2.08(a) above.

(e) Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section 2.08, to the extent (i) any Net Proceeds exist as a result of an Asset Sale or casualty event from Irish Holdco and/or a Foreign Subsidiary that give rise to a prepayment event pursuant to Section 2.08(b)(i) or (ii) any Excess Cash Flow attributable to Irish Holdco and/or a Foreign Subsidiary exists that gives rise to a prepayment event pursuant to Section 2.08(b)(iii), and, in either case, such prepayment would result in a material adverse tax consequence and/or is prohibited, restricted or delayed by applicable local law from being repatriated or contributed to the Borrower, (A) the portion of such Net Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow so affected will not be required to be applied to repay the Term Loans at the times provided in this Section 2.08 but may be retained by Irish Holdco and/or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary so long, but only so long, as the material adverse tax consequence and/or applicable local law will not permit repatriation or contribution to the Borrower; provided however that (1) Irish Holdco shall use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly take all actions, and cause the applicable Foreign Subsidiary to promptly take all actions, in each case reasonably required by the applicable local law to eliminate the material adverse tax consequence and/or permit such repatriation or contribution under applicable local law and (2) solely with respect to a prepayment event pursuant to Section 2.08(b)(iii) that is limited as a result of a material adverse tax consequence, an amount equal to the portion of Excess Cash Flow that is not used for a mandatory prepayment in accordance with this Section 2.08(e) less the amount of additional taxes that would have been payable as a result of such distribution or contribution (taking into account any available tax credits or deductions) if such Excess Cash Flow had been distributed or transferred (or, if less, the Excess Cash Flow that would be calculated if received by Irish Holdco and/or such Foreign Subsidiary) shall be applied to prepay the Term Loans in accordance with this Section 2.08 within twelve (12) months from the date such prepayment was required to be made under Section 2.08(b)(iii).

Section 2.09 Fees. (a) The Borrower agree to pay to the Administrative Agent, for its own account, fees payable in the amounts and at the times separately agreed upon between the Borrower and the Administrative Agent.

(b) If a Repricing Event with respect to the 2015 Term Loans occurs prior to the six-month anniversary of the Closing Date, the Borrower agrees to pay a premium equal to 1% of the principal amount of the 2015 Term Loans subject to such Repricing Event; provided that, it is understood and agreed that any prepayment premium with respect to a Repricing Event payable pursuant to this clause (b) shall also apply to any required assignment pursuant to Section 9.02(d) by a Non-Consenting Lender in connection with any amendment described in Section 2.21 that occurs prior to the six-month anniversary of the Closing Date.

(c) All fees payable hereunder shall be paid on the dates due, in Dollars and immediately available funds, to the Administrative Agent. Fees paid shall not be refundable under any circumstances.

(d) If a Repricing Event with respect to the Incremental Term B-1 Loans occurs prior to the twelve-month anniversary of the Amendment No. 1 Effective Date, the Applicable Borrower agrees to pay a premium equal to 1% of the principal amount of the Incremental Term B-1 Loans subject to such Repricing Event; provided that, it is understood and agreed that any prepayment premium with respect to a Repricing Event payable pursuant to this clause (d) shall also apply to any required

 

74


assignment pursuant to Section 9.02(d) by a Non-Consenting Lender in connection with any amendment described in Section 2.21 that occurs prior to the twelve-month anniversary of the Amendment No. 1 Effective Date.

(e) (e) If a Repricing Event with respect to the Second Amendment Refinancing Term Loans occurs prior to the six-month anniversary of the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date, the Applicable Borrower agrees to pay a premium equal to 1% of the principal amount of the Second Amendment Refinancing Term Loans subject to such Repricing Event; provided that, it is understood and agreed that any prepayment premium with respect to a Repricing Event payable pursuant to this clause (e) shall also apply to any required assignment pursuant to Section 9.02(d) by a Non-Consenting Lender in connection with any amendment described in Section 2.21 that occurs prior to the six-month anniversary of the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date.

(f) If a Repricing Event with respect to the Third Amendment Refinancing Term Loans occurs prior to the six-month anniversary of the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date, the Applicable Borrower agrees to pay a premium equal to 1% of the principal amount of the Third Amendment Refinancing Term Loans subject to such Repricing Event; provided that, it is understood and agreed that any prepayment premium with respect to a Repricing Event payable pursuant to this clause (f) shall also apply to any required assignment pursuant to Section 9.02(d) by a Non-Consenting Lender in connection with any amendment described in Section 2.21 that occurs prior to the six-month anniversary of the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date.

Section 2.10 Interest. (a) The Loans comprising each ABR Borrowing shall bear interest at the Alternate Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin.

(b) The Loans comprising each Eurocurrency Borrowing shall bear interest at the Adjusted LIBO Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing plus the Applicable Margin.

(c) Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any principal of or interest on any Loan or any fee or other amount payable by the Applicable Borrower hereunder is not paid when due, whether at stated maturity, upon acceleration or otherwise, such overdue amount shall bear interest, after as well as before judgment, at a rate per annum equal to (i) in the case of overdue principal of any Loan, 2% plus the rate otherwise applicable to such Loan as provided in the preceding paragraphs of this Section 2.10 or (ii) in the case of any other amount, 2% plus the rate applicable to ABR Loans as provided in paragraph (a) of this Section 2.10.

(d) Accrued interest on each Loan shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date for such Loan; provided that (i) interest accrued pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section 2.10 shall be payable on demand, (ii) in the event of any repayment or prepayment of any Loan of any Class, accrued interest on the principal amount repaid or prepaid shall be payable on the date of such repayment or prepayment and (iii) in the event of any conversion of any Eurocurrency Loan prior to the end of the current Interest Period therefor, accrued interest on such Loan shall be payable on the effective date of such conversion.

(e) All interest hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, except that interest computed by reference to the Alternate Base Rate at times when the Alternate Base Rate is based on the Prime Rate shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days in a leap year), and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). The applicable Alternate Base Rate, Adjusted LIBO Rate or LIBO Rate shall be determined by the Administrative Agent, and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

 

75


Section 2.11 Alternate Rate of Interest. If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a Eurocurrency Borrowing:

(a) the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the LIBO Rate, as applicable, for such Interest Period; or

(b) the Administrative Agent is advised by a Majority in Interest of the Lenders of any Class that the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the LIBO Rate, as applicable, for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders (or Lender) of making or maintaining their Loans (or its Loan) included in such Borrowing for such Interest Period:

then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Applicable Borrower and the applicable Lenders by telephone or telecopy as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Applicable Borrower and the applicable Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (i) any Interest Election Request that requests the conversion of any Borrowing to, or continuation of any Borrowing as, a Eurocurrency Borrowing shall be ineffective and any such Eurocurrency Borrowing shall be repaid on the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable thereto, and (ii) if any Borrowing Request requests a Eurocurrency Borrowing in Dollars, such Borrowing shall be made as an ABR Borrowing; provided that if the circumstances giving rise to such notice affect only one Type of Borrowings, then the other Type of Borrowings shall be permitted.

Section 2.12 Increased Costs. (a) If any Change in Law shall:

(i) impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended or participated in by, any Lender (except any such reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted LIBO Rate);

(ii) impose on any Lender or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or Loans made by such Lender; or

(iii) subject the Administrative Agent or any Lender to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Other Taxes and (C) Excluded Taxes (including any change in the rate of Excluded Taxes)) with respect to this Agreement, or any Loan made by it;

and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to the Administrative Agent or such Lender of making or maintaining any Loan or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by the Administrative Agent or such Lender hereunder, whether of principal, interest or otherwise, then the Applicable Borrower will pay to the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.

(b) If any Lender determines that any Change in Law regarding capital or liquidity requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement or the Loans made by such Lender, to a level below that which such Lender or such Lender’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity), then from time to time the Applicable Borrower will pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such Lender’s holding company for any such reduction suffered.

 

76


(c) A certificate of a Lender setting forth, in reasonable detail, the basis and calculation of the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section 2.12 shall be delivered to the Applicable Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Applicable Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within ten (10) days after receipt thereof.

(d) Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Section 2.12 shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the Applicable Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this Section 2.12 for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 180 days prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Applicable Borrower of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 180-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.

Section 2.13 Break Funding Payments. In the event of (a) the payment of any principal of any Eurocurrency Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of an Event of Default or as a result of any prepayment pursuant to Section 2.08), (b) the conversion of any Eurocurrency Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, (c) the failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay any Eurocurrency Loan on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto (regardless of whether such notice may be revoked under Section 2.08(a) and is revoked in accordance therewith) or (d) the assignment of any Eurocurrency Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto as a result of a request by the Applicable Borrower pursuant to Section 2.17, then, in any such event the Applicable Borrower shall compensate each Lender for the loss, cost and expense attributable to such event. Such loss, cost or expense to any Lender shall be deemed to include an amount determined by such Lender to be the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest which would have accrued or has been payable on the principal amount of such Loan had such event not occurred, at the Adjusted LIBO Rate that would have been applicable to such Loan (but not the Applicable Margin 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 for such Loan), over (ii) the amount of interest which would accrue on such principal amount for such period at the interest rate which such Lender would bid were it to bid, at the commencement of such period, for deposits in the relevant currency of a comparable amount and period from other banks in the eurocurrency market or other applicable market. A certificate of any Lender setting forth any amount or amounts that such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section 2.13, and setting forth in reasonable detail the calculations used by such Lender to determine such amount or amounts, shall be delivered to the Applicable Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within ten (10) days after receipt thereof; provided that Applicable Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this Section 2.13 for any amounts under this Section 2.13 incurred more than 180 days prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Applicable Borrower of such amount and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor.

Section 2.14 Taxes. (a) Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of any Loan Party under any Loan Document shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any Taxes; provided that if an applicable withholding agent shall be required to deduct any Taxes from such payments, then (i) if such Taxes are Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes, the sum payable by the applicable Loan Party shall be increased by the amount necessary so that after all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.14) each Agent and Lender receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes been made, (ii) the withholding agent shall be entitled to make such

 

77


deductions and (iii) the withholding agent shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.

(b) In addition, the Loan Parties shall timely pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.

(c) The Loan Parties shall jointly and severally indemnify each Agent and each Lender, within ten (10) days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes and Other Taxes paid by such Agent or such Lender (including Indemnified Taxes and Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 2.14) and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for and calculation of such payment or liability delivered to any Borrower, Additional Borrower or Guarantor by a Lender or Agent or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender or Agent, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(d) As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by any Loan Party to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 2.14, such Loan Party shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority (provided receipts are issued in the ordinary course by the Governmental Authority) evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.

(e) Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding tax with respect to payments under this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall deliver (if delivery is required to grant an exemption or reduction of withholding tax) to the Borrower or applicable Additional Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), at the time(s) and in the manner(s) reasonably requested by such Borrower or Additional Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate. In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by a U.S. Borrower or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by such U.S. Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will enable such U.S. Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 2.14(e)(i)(A), Section 2.14(e)(i)(C), Section 2.14(e)(ii) and Section 2.14(h) below and, solely with respect to Lenders under Loans advanced to an Additional Borrower that is tax resident in the Republic of Ireland, the documentation required for the purposes of satisfying the procedural formalities referred to in paragraph (5) of the definition of Irish Qualifying Lender) shall not be required if in the Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.

(i) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, solely with respect to Loans extended to a U.S. Borrower,

(A) any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to such U.S. Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time

 

78


thereafter upon the reasonable request of such U.S. Borrower or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:

(i) in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Loan Document, executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Loan Document, IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;

(ii) executed originals of IRS Form W-8ECI;

(iii) in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (x) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit G-1 to the effect that such Foreign Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10-percent shareholder” of such U.S. Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E; or

(iv) to the extent a Foreign Lender is not the beneficial owner of payments made to it under the Loan Documents, executed originals of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit G-2 or Exhibit G-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Foreign Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit G-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner;

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

(C) if a payment made to the Administrative Agent or a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to United States federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if the Administrative Agent or such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), the Administrative Agent or such Lender shall deliver to Borrower and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the

 

79


Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Borrower and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that the Administrative Agent or such Lender has complied with the Administrative Agent’s or such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this Section 2.14(e)(i)(C), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the Closing Date.

(ii) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, solely with respect to Loans extended to a U.S. Borrower, each Lender and Administrative Agent that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to such U.S. Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient), on or prior to the date on which such Person becomes a party to this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of such U.S. Borrower or the Administrative Agent), properly completed and duly executed originals of IRS Form W-9 or any successor form, certifying that such Person is exempt from United States federal backup withholding Tax.

Each Lender and Administrative Agent agrees that if it becomes aware any form or certification it previously delivered pursuant to Section 2.14(e) has expired or become obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall promptly update such form or certification or notify the Applicable Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.

(f) If the Administrative Agent or a Lender determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by the Borrower, any Additional Borrower or any Guarantor, as the case may be, or with respect to which the Borrower, any Additional Borrower or any Guarantor, as the case may be, has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.14, it shall pay over such refund to the Borrower, such Additional Borrower or such Guarantor (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by the Borrower, such Additional Borrower or such Guarantor under this Section 2.14 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses of the Administrative Agent or such Lender and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided that the Borrower, Additional Borrower or Guarantor, as the case may be, upon the request of the Administrative Agent or such Lender, agrees to repay the amount paid over to the Borrower, Additional Borrower or Guarantor (plus any interest imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to the Administrative Agent or such Lender in the event the Administrative Agent or such Lender is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority and the requirement to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority is not due to the Administrative Agent’s or such Lender’s failure to file a timely and accurate form or certification or timely update such form or certification as required pursuant to Section 2.14(e). This Section 2.14 shall not be construed to require the Administrative Agent or any Lender to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes which it deems confidential) to the Borrower, any Additional Borrower, any Guarantor or any other Person. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (f), in no event will the Administrative Agent or any Lender be required to pay any amount to the Borrower, any Additional Borrower or any Guarantor pursuant to this paragraph (f) if the payment of which would place the Administrative Agent or such Lender in a less favorable net after-Tax position than it would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification (or the payment of additional amounts) 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; provided that, for the avoidance of doubt, in determining the net after-Tax position, any Taxes that would not have been imposed but for the

 

80


Administrative Agent’s or such Lender’s failure, if any, to file timely and accurate forms or certifications or to timely update such forms or certifications as required pursuant to Sections 2.14(e) and 2.14(h) shall be disregarded and shall be refunded to the Applicable Borrower or Guarantor.

(g) Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within 10 days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes and Other Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that any Loan Party has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and Other Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Loan Parties to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 9.04(c)(ii) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register, and (iii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender, in each case, that are paid or payable by the Administrative Agent in connection with any Loan Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this paragraph (g).

(h) (i) Every Lender under the Loans advanced to an Additional Borrower that is tax resident in the Republic of Ireland shall on or prior to the day on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement, provide a confirmation in the form attached at Exhibit H (an “Irish Qualifying Lender Confirmation”). Each such Lender that becomes a Lender after the date of this Agreement shall provide, in any Assignment and Assumption which it executes on becoming a Lender, and each party that becomes a Participant with respect to the Loans advanced to an Additional Borrower that is tax resident in the Republic of Ireland after the date of this Agreement shall provide, upon becoming a Participant, for the benefit of each Foreign Loan Party and Administrative Agent an Irish Qualifying Lender Confirmation.

(ii) If a Lender or Participant, as the case may be, fails to provide an Irish Qualifying Lender Confirmation in accordance with this Section 2.14(h), then such Lender or Participant, as the case may be, shall be treated for the purposes of this Agreement (including by each Foreign Loan Party) as if it is not an Irish Qualifying Lender until such time as it provides an Irish Qualifying Lender Confirmation to the Administrative Agent (and the Administrative Agent, upon receipt of such Irish Qualifying Lender Confirmation, shall inform each Foreign Loan Party). For the avoidance of doubt, an Assignment and Assumption or participation, as the case may be, shall not be invalidated by any failure of a Lender or Participant, as the case may be, to comply with this Section.

(iii) Each Lender or Participant required to provide an Irish Qualifying Lender Confirmation in accordance with this Section 2.14(h), as the case may be, shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent if there has been a change in any of the details provided in the Irish Qualifying Lender Confirmation (excluding, for the avoidance of doubt, any change in law) and provide an updated Irish Qualifying Lender Confirmation at that time and shall, for as long as it is Lender or Participant, as the case may be, at the reasonable written request by or on behalf of an Additional Borrower that is tax resident in the Republic of Ireland, provide an updated Irish Qualifying Lender Confirmation.

Section 2.15 Payments Generally; Allocations of Proceeds; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Set-offs. (a) Each Applicable Borrower shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder

 

81


(whether of principal, interest, or fees, or of amounts payable under Section 2.12, 2.13 or 2.14, or otherwise) prior to 12:00 noon, New York City time, on the date when due, in immediately available funds, without set-off or counterclaim. Any amounts received after such time on any date may, in the discretion of the Administrative Agent, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. All such payments shall be made in Dollars to the Administrative Agent at the address specified in Section 9.01(a)(ii) or such other office as the Administrative Agent may hereafter designate in writing as such to the other parties hereto, except that payments pursuant to Sections 2.12, 2.13, 2.14 and 9.03 shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto. The Administrative Agent shall distribute any such payments denominated in the same currency received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof. If any payment hereunder shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be payable for the period of such extension.

(b) Any proceeds of Collateral received by the Administrative Agent (whether as a result of any realization on the Collateral, any setoff rights, any distribution in connection with any proceedings or other action of any Loan Party in respect of Debtor Relief Laws or otherwise and whether received in cash or otherwise) (i) not constituting (A) a specific payment of principal, interest, fees or other sum payable under the Loan Documents (which shall be applied on a pro rata basis among the relevant Lenders under the Class of Loans being prepaid as specified by the Applicable Borrower) or (B) a mandatory prepayment (which shall be applied in accordance with Section 2.08) or (ii) after an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent so elects or the Required Lenders so direct, such funds shall be applied, subject to the provisions of any Intercreditor Agreement, ratably first, to pay any fees, indemnities, or expense reimbursements including amounts then due to the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent from the Borrower and any Additional Borrower, second, to pay any fees or expense reimbursements then due to the Lenders (in their capacities as such) from the Borrower and any Additional Borrower, third, to pay interest (including post-petition interest, whether or not an allowed claim in any Insolvency or Liquidation Proceeding) then due and payable on the Loans ratably, fourth, to prepay principal on the Loans, and any other amounts owing with respect to any pari passu Swap Obligations and/or Cash Management Obligations ratably, and fifth, to the payment of any other Secured Obligation due to any Secured Party by the Borrower. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, unless so directed by the Applicable Borrower, or unless a Default is in existence, none of the Administrative Agent or any Lender shall apply any payment which it receives to any Eurocurrency Loan, except (a) on the expiration date of the Interest Period or maturity date (as applicable) applicable to any such Eurocurrency Loan or (b) in the event, and only to the extent, that there are no outstanding ABR Loans of the same Class and, in any event, the Applicable Borrower shall pay the break funding payment required in accordance with Section 2.13. The Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall have the continuing and exclusive right to apply and reverse and reapply any and all such received proceeds and payments to any portion of the Secured Obligations.

(c) If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of set-off or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on any of its Loans resulting in such Lender receiving payment of a greater proportion of the aggregate amount of its Loans and accrued interest thereon than the proportion received by any other Lender, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Loans of other Lenders to the extent necessary so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders ratably in accordance with the aggregate amount of principal of and accrued interest on their respective Loans; provided that (i) if any such participations are purchased and all or any portion of the payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest, (ii) the provisions of this paragraph shall not be construed to apply to any payment made by the Borrower and any Additional Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the

 

82


express terms of this Agreement or any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans to any assignee or participant, other than, except as provided in Section 2.20, to Irish Holdco or any Subsidiary thereof (as to which the provisions of this paragraph shall apply) and (iii) nothing in this Section 2.15(c) shall be construed to limit the applicability of Section 2.15(b) in the circumstances where Section 2.15(b) is applicable in accordance with its terms. The Borrower and any Additional Borrower consent to the foregoing and agree, to the extent they may effectively do so under applicable law, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against the Borrower and any Additional Borrower rights of set-off and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of the Borrower or Additional Borrower in the amount of such participation.

(d) Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Applicable Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of the relevant Lenders hereunder that the Applicable Borrower will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Applicable Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the relevant Lenders the amount due. In such event, if the Applicable Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the relevant Lenders severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation.

(e) If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.04(b), 2.15(d) or 9.03(c), then the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), (i) apply any amounts thereafter received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender and for the benefit of the Administrative Agent to satisfy such Lender’s obligations to it under such Section 2.15 until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid and/or (ii) hold any such amounts in a segregated account as cash collateral for, and application to, any future funding obligations of such Lender under any such Section 2.15; in the case of each of clauses (i) and (ii) above, in any order as determined by the Administrative Agent in its discretion.

Section 2.16 Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders. (a) If any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.12, if any Applicable Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.14 or if any Lender delivers a notice pursuant to Section 2.22, then such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.12 or 2.14, as the case may be, in the future or avoid such illegality under Section 2.22 and (ii) would not subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be materially disadvantageous to such Lender. The Applicable Borrower hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.

(b) If (i) any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.12, (ii) the Applicable Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.14 or if any Lender delivers a notice pursuant to Section 2.22, or (iii) any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then the Applicable 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

 

83


Section 9.04), all its interests, rights and obligations under the 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 Applicable Borrower shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld, (ii) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder (including any amounts under Sections 2.13 and 2.09(b) but subject to Section 2.23(a)), from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Applicable Borrower (in the case of all other amounts including the fees set forth in Section 2.09(b), which shall be payable and calculated as if the Applicable Borrower were making a prepayment to such assigning Lender), (iii) in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 2.12 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 2.14, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments and (iv) such assignment does not conflict with applicable law. A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Borrower to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.

Section 2.17 Incremental Credit Extensions. (a) The Borrower and any Additional Borrower may, by written notice to the Administrative Agent (whereupon the Administrative Agent shall promptly deliver a copy to each of the Lenders) from time to time after the Closing Date, request Incremental Term Loan Commitments and/or Incremental Revolving Commitments, as applicable, in the case of the Incremental Term Loan Commitments, denominated in Dollars, and in the case of the Incremental Revolving Commitments, denominated in Dollars or one of the Agreed Currencies, from one or more Incremental Term Lenders and/or Incremental Revolving Lenders (which, in each case, may include any existing Lender or any other bank or other financial institution (any such other bank or other financial institution, an “Additional Lender”), but shall be required to be Persons which would qualify as assignees of a Lender in accordance with Section 9.04) willing to provide such Incremental Term Loans and/or Incremental Revolving Commitments, as the case may be, in their own discretion. For the avoidance of doubt, with respect to any Incremental Loans incurred by an Additional Borrower that is organized in the Republic of Ireland, each Incremental Lender shall comply with the requirements of Section 2.14, including the provision of an Irish Qualifying Lender Confirmation substantially in the form of Exhibit H (pursuant to which such Incremental Lender shall acknowledge that if it is not an Irish Qualifying Lender it will not be grossed up for any Irish withholding Tax applicable under relevant law as of the date such Incremental Lender becomes a party with respect to the Incremental Loans). Each notice provided pursuant to this Section 2.17 shall set forth (i) the type and amount of the Incremental Term Loan Commitments and/or Incremental Revolving Commitments being requested (which shall be in minimum increments of $1,000,000 and a minimum amount of $10,000,000), (ii) the date on which such Incremental Term Loan Commitments and/or Incremental Revolving Commitments are requested to become effective and (iii) to the extent constituting Incremental Term Loan Commitments, whether such Incremental Term Loan Commitments are commitments to make term loans with the same interest rates, amortization, maturity and other terms as the Class of Term Loans with the Latest Maturity Date or commitments to make term loans with interest rates and/or amortization and/or maturity and/or other terms different from such Class of Term Loans (“Other Term Loans”).

(b) The Borrower and the Additional Borrowers and each Incremental Lender shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent an Incremental Amendment and such other documentation as the Administrative Agent shall reasonably specify to evidence the Incremental Commitment of such Incremental Lender. Each Incremental Amendment providing for Incremental Term Loans shall specify the terms of the applicable Incremental Term Loans; provided that (i) the final maturity date of any Other Term Loans shall be no earlier than the Latest Maturity Date of any Class of Term Loans, (ii) such Class of Other Term Loans shall be denominated in Dollars, (iii) the Weighted Average Life to Maturity of any Other Term Loans shall be no shorter than the remaining Weighted

 

84


Average Life to Maturity of the Class of Term Loans with the Latest Maturity Date, and (iv) with respect to any Other Term Loans made on or after the Closing Date, the Effective Yield of any Other Term Loans may exceed the Effective Yield then applicable to the 2015 Term Loans, the Incremental Term B-1 Loans or, the Second Amendment Refinancing Term Loans or the Third Amendment Refinancing Term Loans; provided that (wv) in the case of Other Term Loans made within the first 18 months after the Closing Date, the Effective Yield for the 2015 Term Loans is increased (to the extent necessary) such that the Effective Yield thereof is not less than the Effective Yield of such Other Term Loans minus 0.50%, (xw) in the case of Other Term Loans made after the Closing Date, the Effective Yield for the Incremental Term B-1 Loans is increased (to the extent necessary) such that the Effective Yield thereof is not less than the Effective Yield of such Other Term Loans minus 0.50%, (yx) in the case of Other Term Loans made within the first 18 months after the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date, the Effective Yield for the Second Amendment Refinancing Term Loans is increased (to the extent necessary) such that the Effective Yield thereof is not less than the Effective Yield of such Other Term Loans minus 0.50%, (y) in the case of Other Term Loans made within the first 18 months after the Amendment No. 3 Effective Date, the Effective Yield for the Third Amendment Refinancing Term Loans is increased (to the extent necessary) such that the Effective Yield thereof is not less than the Effective Yield of such Other Term Loans minus 0.50%, and (z) the Effective Yield for each other Class of Loans (unless specified otherwise in any Incremental Amendment, Refinancing Amendment or Extension Offer pursuant to which any such Class was created) is increased by a percentage per annum equal to that by which the Effective Yield of the SecondThird Amendment Refinancing Term Loans is (or would have been if then outstanding, if all SecondThird Amendment Refinancing Term Loans have been repaid in full at the time of such determination) increased pursuant to the preceding clause (x) and (v) the other terms of any Other Term Loans shall be reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent or shall not, when taken as a whole, be materially more favorable to the lenders or holders thereof than the relevant terms applicable to the Term Loans. The Incremental Term Loans shall rank pari passu or junior in right of payment and of security with the Term Loans and shall not be (x) secured by any property or assets of Irish Holdco or any Subsidiary other than the Collateral or (y) guaranteed by Irish Holdco or any of its Subsidiaries other than any Guarantor; provided that, if such Incremental Term Loans rank junior in right of security with the Term Loans, such Incremental Term Loans will be established as a separate Tranche from the Term Loans. In the case of any second lien Incremental Term Loans, such Indebtedness shall be subject to the terms of a Second Lien Intercreditor Agreement. Each Incremental Amendment providing for Incremental Revolving Commitments shall specify the terms of the applicable Incremental Revolving Commitments and Incremental Revolving Loans, including, but not limited to, provisions governing pro rata payment, borrowing and commitment reductions and defaulting lender provisions; provided that (i) except as to pricing, commitment fees, amortization, mandatory prepayment and final maturity date and other usual and customary provisions applicable to the revolving nature of the Incremental Revolving Loans (which shall, subject to clauses (ii) and (iii) of this proviso, be determined by the Borrower, the Additional Borrowers and the Incremental Revolving Lenders and be reasonably approved by the Administrative Agent), the material terms of Incremental Revolving Loans shall (x) be substantially identical to the SecondThird Amendment Refinancing Term Loans or (y) be reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent; provided that (i) such Incremental Revolving Loans may have terms that are not substantially identical to the SecondThird Amendment Refinancing Term Loans after the Latest Maturity Date, (ii) the final maturity date of any Incremental Revolving Loans may be earlier than the Maturity Date of any Class of Term Loans and (iii) such Incremental Revolving Loans (A) may be denominated in Dollars and/or one of the Agreed Currencies, (B) may have mandatory commitment reduction terms that are not identical to the SecondThird Amendment Refinancing Term Loans, (C) may have scheduled amortization payments prior to the Latest Maturity Date or (D) may benefit from one or more financial maintenance covenants (and related events of default) that are not applicable to any Term Loans. The Incremental Revolving Loans shall rank pari passu in right of payment and of security with the Term Loans and shall not be (x) secured by any property or assets of Irish Holdco or any Subsidiary

 

85


other than the Collateral or (y) guaranteed by Irish Holdco or any of its Subsidiaries other than any Guarantor.

(c) Subject to Section 2.16, each Lender may, at its option, make any Loan available to the Borrower or an Additional Borrower by causing any foreign or domestic branch or Affiliate of such Lender to make such Loan (in which case such branch or Affiliate shall be treated as the “Lender” with respect to such Loan for all purposes of this Agreement); provided that (x) any exercise of such option shall not affect the obligation of the Borrower or such Additional Borrower to repay such Loan in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, (y) if the respective branch or Affiliate is a Foreign Lender, the same shall comply with the requirements of Section 2.14, and (z) with respect to any Loans advanced to an Additional Borrower that is tax resident in the Republic of Ireland, the Affiliate, whether or not a Foreign Lender, shall comply with the requirements of Section 2.14.

(d) Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Incremental Commitment shall become effective under this Section 2.17 unless (i) at the time that any such Incremental is made (and after giving effect thereto), (A) no Default or Event of Default shall exist; provided that, in the event that any tranche of Incremental Term Loans is used to finance a Permitted Acquisition and to the extent the Incremental Term Lenders participating in such tranche of Incremental Term Loans agree, the foregoing clause (A) shall be tested solely at the time of the execution of the acquisition agreement related to such Permitted Acquisition (provided that such Incremental Term Lenders shall not be permitted to waive any Default or Event of Default then existing or existing after giving effect to such tranche of Incremental Term Loans), and (B) the representations and warranties of the Applicable Borrower set forth in this Agreement shall be true and correct in all material respects (other than to the extent qualified by materiality or “Material Adverse Effect”, in which case, such representations and warranties shall be true and correct); provided that, in the event that the tranche of Incremental Term Loans is used to finance a Limited Condition Acquisition and to the extent the Incremental Term Lenders participating in such tranche of Incremental Term Loans agree, the foregoing clause (B) shall be limited to customary “specified representations” and those representations included in the acquisition agreement related to such Limited Condition Acquisition that are material to the interests of the Lenders and only to the extent that Borrower, Additional Borrower or their respective applicable Subsidiary has the right to terminate its obligations under such acquisition agreement as a result of a breach of such representations, (ii) such Incremental Term Loan Commitments and/or Incremental Revolving Commitments, as applicable, shall be in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed, as of any date of determination, the sum of (A) $120,000,000, plus (B) additional amounts so long as (I) the First Lien Net Leverage Ratio does not exceed 3.50:1.00 (but excluding, for purposes of such calculation, the proceeds of such Incremental Loans or any other Indebtedness incurred on such date in the calculation of the Unrestricted Cash) and (II) the Total Net Leverage Ratio does not exceed 5.75:1.00 (but excluding, for purposes of such calculation, the proceeds of such Incremental Loans or any other Indebtedness incurred on such date in the calculation of the Unrestricted Cash), in each case of clauses (B)(I) and (B)(II) (x) determined on a pro forma basis as of the date of incurrence of such Incremental Loan or Incremental Commitment and after giving effect thereto and the use of proceeds thereof (or to the extent the proceeds of any Incremental Term Loans or Incremental Term Commitments are intended to be applied to finance a Permitted Acquisition and the Lenders participating in such Incremental Term Loans or Incremental Term Commitments agree, determined at the time of the execution of the acquisition agreement related to such Permitted Acquisition) and (y) assuming that all Incremental Revolving Commitments are fully drawn; provided that in the case of the First Lien Net Leverage Ratio calculation, all Incremental Loans and all Alternative Incremental Facility Indebtedness (and Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness with respect to the foregoing), whether or not actually secured and, if secured, whether or not actually secured on a first-lien basis, shall be assumed to be secured on a first lien basis and (iii) the Administrative Agent shall have received documents and legal opinions consistent with those delivered on the Closing Date as to such matters as are reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall

 

86


promptly notify each Lender as to the effectiveness of each Incremental Amendment. Each of the parties hereto hereby agrees that, upon the effectiveness of any Incremental Amendment, this Agreement shall be amended to the extent (but only to the extent) necessary to reflect the existence and terms of the Incremental Commitments (including any mechanical or other amendments necessary to reflect the establishment of the Incremental Revolving Commitments) evidenced thereby. Any such deemed amendment may be memorialized in writing by the Administrative Agent with the Borrower’s and any Additional Borrower’s consent (not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned) and furnished to the other parties hereto.

(e) The Incremental Amendment may, without the consent of any Agents or Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.17 (including without limitation, (i) the addition of customary letter of credit, swingline and Defaulting Lender provisions with respect to any Incremental Revolving Lenders and (ii) the addition of a class vote of the Incremental Revolving Lenders for acceleration, waiver and amendment with respect to any particular Class of Incremental Revolving Loans). The Applicable Borrower will use the proceeds of the Incremental Loans for general corporate purposes (including loans and other Investments in Irish Holdco and its Subsidiaries as permitted herein, Permitted Acquisitions and Investments). Incremental Loans may be made by any existing Lender (but no existing Lender will have any obligation to make or provide any portion of any Incremental Loan) or by any other bank or other financial institution. No Lender shall be obligated to provide any Incremental Loans unless it so agrees.

(f) This Section 2.17 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.15 or 9.02 to the contrary.

Section 2.18 Judgment Currency. If for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court it is necessary to convert a sum due from an Applicable Borrower hereunder in the currency expressed to be payable herein (the “specified currency”) into another currency, the parties hereto agree, to the fullest extent that they may effectively do so, that the rate of exchange used shall be that at which in accordance with normal banking procedures the Administrative Agent could purchase the specified currency with such other currency at the Administrative Agent’s main New York City office on the Business Day preceding that on which final, non-appealable judgment is given. The obligations of the Borrower and any Additional Borrower in respect of any sum due to any Lender or the Administrative Agent hereunder shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency other than the specified currency, be discharged only to the extent that on the Business Day following receipt by such Lender or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) of any sum adjudged to be so due in such other currency such Lender or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) may in accordance with normal, reasonable banking procedures purchase the specified currency with such other currency. If the amount of the specified currency so purchased is less than the sum originally due to such Lender or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, in the specified currency, the Applicable Borrower agrees, to the fullest extent that it may effectively do so, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify such Lender or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, against such loss, and if the amount of the specified currency so purchased exceeds (a) the sum originally due to any Lender or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, in the specified currency and (b) any amounts shared with other Lenders as a result of allocations of such excess as a disproportionate payment to such Lender under Section 2.15, such Lender or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, agrees to remit such excess to the Borrower.

Section 2.19 Extensions of Loans and Commitments. (a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, pursuant to one or more offers (each, an “Extension Offer”) made from time

 

87


to time by the Applicable Borrower to (i) all Term Lenders of Term Loans with a like Maturity Date and/or (ii) all Incremental Revolving Lenders with a like Maturity Date, in each case on a pro rata basis (based on the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the respective Loans or the aggregate amount of the Commitments with the same Maturity Date, as the case may be) and on the same terms to each such Lender, the Applicable Borrower may from time to time offer to extend the Maturity Date for any such Loans and otherwise modify the terms of such Loans and/or Commitments pursuant to the terms of the relevant Extension Offer (including by increasing the interest rate or fees payable in respect of such Loans and/or Commitments (and related outstandings) (each, an “Extension”), and each group of Loans or Commitments, as applicable, in each case of a given Tranche as so extended, as well as the original Loans and Commitments of the original respective Tranche (in each case not so extended), shall (for the avoidance of doubt) be part of a single Tranche; and any Extended Loans shall constitute a separate Class of Loans from the Class of Loans from which they were converted, so long as the following terms are satisfied:

(i) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing at the time an Extension Offer is delivered to the Lenders or at the time of the Extension;

(ii) except as to interest rates, fees, amortization, final maturity date, premium, required prepayment dates and participation in prepayments (which shall, subject to the succeeding clauses (iii), (iv) and (v), be determined by the Borrower and set forth in the relevant Extension Offer), the Loans of any Term Lender extended pursuant to any Extension (“Extended Loans”) shall have the same terms as the Tranche of Loans subject to such Extension Offer;

(iii) the final maturity date for any Extended Loans shall be no earlier than the then Latest Maturity Date for the Tranche of Loans so extended;

(iv) the Weighted Average Life to Maturity of any Extended Loans shall be no shorter than the remaining Weighted Average Life to Maturity of the Term Loans extended thereby;

(v) any Extended Loans may participate on a pro rata basis or a less than pro rata basis (but not greater than a pro rata basis) in any voluntary or mandatory repayments or prepayments hereunder, in each case as specified in the respective Extension Offer;

(vi) if the aggregate principal amount of applicable Loans (calculated on the face amount thereof) in respect of which applicable Lenders shall have accepted the relevant Extension Offer shall exceed the maximum aggregate principal amount of applicable Loans, offered to be extended by the Applicable Borrower pursuant to such Extension Offer, then the applicable Loans, of the applicable Lenders, shall be extended ratably up to such maximum amount based on the respective principal amounts (but not to exceed actual holdings of record) with respect to which such Lenders have accepted such Extension Offer;

(vii) all documentation in respect of such Extension shall be consistent with the foregoing,

(viii) the Extension shall not become effective unless, on the proposed effective date of the Extension, (x) the Applicable Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent one or more legal opinions reasonably satisfactory to the

Administrative Agent and a certificate of an authorized officer of each Loan Party dated the applicable date of the Extension and executed by an authorized officer of such Loan Party certifying and attaching the resolutions adopted by such Loan Party approving or consenting to such Extension and (y) the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 shall be satisfied (with all references in such Section 4.02 to any Borrowing being deemed to be references to the Extension on the applicable date of the Extension) and the Administrative Agent shall have received a certificate to that effect dated the applicable date of the Extension and executed by a Financial Officer of Irish Holdco and the Applicable Borrower(s);

(ix) any applicable Minimum Extension Condition shall be satisfied unless waived by the Applicable Borrower; and

(x) the Minimum Tranche Amount shall be satisfied unless waived by the Administrative Agent.

(b) With respect to all Extensions consummated by an Applicable Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.19, (i) such Extensions shall not constitute voluntary or mandatory payments or prepayments for purposes of Sections 2.08 and (ii) no Extension Offer is required to be in any minimum amount or any minimum increment; provided that (A) the Applicable Borrower may at its election specify as a condition (a “Minimum Extension Condition”) to consummating any such Extension that a minimum amount (to be determined and specified in the relevant Extension Offer in Borrowers’ sole discretion and may be waived by Applicable Borrower) of Loans of any or all applicable Tranches and Classes be tendered and (B) no Tranche of Extended Loans shall be in an amount of less than $2,500,000 (the “Minimum Tranche Amount”), unless such Minimum Tranche Amount is waived by the Administrative Agent. Subject to compliance with the terms of this Section 2.19, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereby consent to the Extensions and the other transactions contemplated by this Section 2.19 (including, for the avoidance of doubt, payment of any interest, fees or premium in respect of any Extended Loans on such terms as may be set forth in the relevant Extension Offer) and hereby waive the requirements of any provision of this Agreement (including, without limitation, Sections 2.08 and 2.15) or any other Loan Document that may otherwise prohibit any such Extension or any other transaction contemplated by this Section 2.19.

(c) No consent of any Lender or the Administrative Agent shall be required to effectuate any Extension, other than the consent of each Lender agreeing to such Extension with respect to one or more of its Loans of any Class and/or Other Refinancing Loans (or a portion thereof). All Extended Loans and all obligations in respect thereof shall be Secured Obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents that are secured by all or a portion of the Collateral on a pari passu or junior lien basis with all other applicable Obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents; provided that, if such Extended Loans rank junior in right of security with any other Obligations, such Extended Loans will be subject to the terms of a Second Lien Intercreditor Agreement. The Lenders hereby irrevocably authorize the Administrative Agent to enter into amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents with the Borrower as may be necessary in order to establish new Tranches or sub-tranches in respect of Term Loans so extended and such technical amendments as may be necessary or appropriate in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent and the Applicable Borrower in connection with the establishment of such new Tranches or subtranches, in each case on terms consistent with this Section 2.19 (each an “Extension Amendment”). Without limiting the foregoing, in connection with any Extensions the respective Loan Parties shall (at their expense) amend (and the Administrative Agent is hereby directed to amend) any Mortgage that has a maturity date prior to the then Latest Maturity Date so that such maturity date is extended to the then Latest Maturity Date (or such later date as may be advised by local counsel to the Administrative Agent).

 

89


(d) In connection with any Extension, the Applicable Borrower shall provide the Administrative Agent at least ten (10) days (or such shorter period as may be agreed by the Administrative Agent) prior written notice thereof, and shall agree to such procedures, if any, as may be established by, or acceptable to, the Administrative Agent, in each case acting reasonably to accomplish the purposes of this Section 2.19.

(e) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, no Lender shall be required to accept an Extension Offer.

Section 2.20 Loan Repurchases. (a) Subject to the terms and conditions set forth or referred to below, a Purchasing Borrower Party may from time to time, at its discretion, conduct modified Dutch auctions in order to purchase its Term Loans of one or more Classes (as determined by the Purchasing Borrower Party) (each, a “Purchase Offer”), each such Purchase Offer to be managed exclusively by the Administrative Agent (or such other financial institution chosen by the Purchasing Borrower Party and reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent) (in such capacity, the “Auction Manager”), so long as the following conditions are satisfied:

(i) each Purchase Offer shall be conducted in accordance with the procedures, terms and conditions set forth in this Section 2.20 and the Auction Procedures;

(ii) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing on the date of the delivery of each notice of an auction and at the time of (and immediately after giving effect to) the purchase of any Term Loans in connection with any Purchase Offer;

(iii) the principal amount (calculated on the face amount thereof) of each and all Classes of Term Loans that the Purchasing Borrower Party offers to purchase in any such Purchase Offer shall be no less than U.S. $10,000,000 (unless another amount is agreed to by the Administrative Agent) (across all such Classes);

(iv) [Reserved.];

(v) the aggregate principal amount (calculated on the face amount thereof) of all Term Loans of the applicable Class or Classes so purchased by the Purchasing Borrower Party shall automatically be cancelled and retired by the Purchasing Borrower Party on the settlement date of the relevant purchase (and may not be resold), and in no event shall the Purchasing Borrower Party be entitled to any vote hereunder in connection with such Term Loans;

(vi) no more than one Purchase Offer with respect to any Class may be ongoing at any one time;

(vii) the Purchasing Borrower Party represents and warrants that no Loan Party shall have any material non-public information with respect to the Loan Parties or their Subsidiaries, or with respect to the Loans or the securities of any such Person, that (A) has not been previously disclosed in writing to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders (other than because such Lender does not wish to receive such material non-public information) prior to such time and (B) could reasonably be expected to have a material effect upon, or otherwise be material to, a Lender’s decision to participate in the Purchase Offer;

 

90


(viii) at the time of each purchase of Term Loans through a Purchase Offer, the Purchasing Borrower Party shall have delivered to the Auction Manager an officer’s certificate of a Responsible Officer certifying as to compliance with the preceding clause (vii); and

(ix) any Purchase Offer with respect to any Class shall be offered to all Term Lenders holding Term Loans of such Class on a pro rata basis.

(b) The Purchasing Borrower Party must terminate any Purchase Offer if it fails to satisfy one or more of the conditions set forth above which are required to be met at the time which otherwise would have been the time of purchase of Term Loans pursuant to such Purchase Offer. If the Purchasing Borrower Party commences any Purchase Offer (and all relevant requirements set forth above which are required to be satisfied at the time of the commencement of such Purchase Offer have in fact been satisfied), and if at such time of commencement the Purchasing Borrower Party reasonably believes that all required conditions set forth above which are required to be satisfied at the time of the consummation of such Purchase Offer shall be satisfied, then the Purchasing Borrower Party shall have no liability to any Term Lender for any termination of such Purchase Offer as a result of its failure to satisfy one or more of the conditions set forth above which are required to be met at the time which otherwise would have been the time of consummation of such Purchase Offer, and any such failure shall not result in any Default or Event of Default hereunder. With respect to all purchases of Term Loans of any Class or Classes made by the Purchasing Borrower Party pursuant to this Section 2.20, (x) the Purchasing Borrower Party shall pay on the settlement date of each such purchase all accrued and unpaid interest (except to the extent otherwise set forth in the relevant offering documents), if any, on the purchased Term Loans of the applicable Class or Classes up to the settlement date of such purchase and (y) such purchases (and the payments made by the Purchasing Borrower Party and the cancellation of the purchased Loans, in each case in connection therewith) shall not constitute voluntary or mandatory payments or prepayments for purposes of Section 2.08 hereof.

(c) The Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereby consent to the Purchase Offers and the other transactions effected pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of this Section 2.20; provided that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, no Lender shall have an obligation to participate in any such Purchase Offer. For the avoidance of doubt, it is understood and agreed that the provisions of Sections 2.08, 2.09, 2.13, 2.15, 6.10 and 9.04 will not apply to the purchases of Term Loans pursuant to Purchase Offers made pursuant to and in accordance with the provisions of this Section 2.20. The Auction Manager acting in its capacity as such hereunder shall be entitled to the benefits of the provisions of Article VIII and Section 9.03 to the same extent as if each reference therein to the “Agents” were a reference to the Auction Manager, and the Administrative Agent shall cooperate with the Auction Manager as reasonably requested by the Auction Manager in order to enable it to perform its responsibilities and duties in connection with each Purchase Offer.

(d) This Section 2.20 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.15 or 9.02 to the contrary.

Section 2.21 Refinancing Amendment. At any time after the Closing Date, the Borrower and/or any Additional Borrower may obtain, from any Lender or any Refinancing Lender, Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness in respect of all or any portion of the Loans or Commitments of the Borrower or any Applicable Borrower then outstanding under this Agreement, in the form of Other Refinancing Loans or Other Refinancing Commitments in each case pursuant to a Refinancing Amendment; provided that such Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness (i) will rank pari passu or, other than in the case of Other Refinancing Revolving Commitments and Other Refinancing Revolving Loans, junior in right of payment and of security with the other Loans and Commitments hereunder;

 

91


provided that, if such Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness ranks junior in right of security with any other Loans or Commitments hereunder, such Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness will be subject to the terms of a Second Lien Intercreditor Agreement, (ii) will have such maturity dates, pricing, interest rate margins, rate floors, discounts, premiums and optional prepayment or redemption terms as may be agreed by the Applicable Borrower and the Lenders thereof; and (iii) will otherwise comply with the proviso to the definition of Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness; provided further that any Person that provides any Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness in the form of Other Refinancing Loans or Other Refinancing Commitments to an Additional Borrower that is organized in the Republic of Ireland shall comply with the requirements of Section 2.14, including the provision of an Irish Qualifying Lender Confirmation substantially in the form of Exhibit H (pursuant to which such Person shall acknowledge that if it is not an Irish Qualifying Lender it will not be grossed up for any Irish withholding Tax applicable under relevant law as of the date such Person provides such Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness). Any Other Refinancing Loans or Other Refinancing Commitments, as applicable, may participate on a pro rata basis or on a less than pro rata basis (but not on a greater than pro rata basis) in any voluntary or mandatory prepayments hereunder, as specified in the applicable Refinancing Amendment. The effectiveness of any Refinancing Amendment shall be subject to the satisfaction on the date thereof of each of the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 and, to the extent reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent, receipt by the Administrative Agent of legal opinions, board resolutions, officers’ certificates and/or reaffirmation agreements generally consistent with those delivered on the Closing Date pursuant to Sections 4.01(b), (e) and (g) (other than changes to such legal opinions resulting from a change in law, change in fact or change to counsel’s form of opinion reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent). Each Tranche of Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness pursuant to this Section 2.21 shall be in an aggregate principal amount that is not less than $5,000,000 (unless such Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness is incurred to refinance all outstanding Loans with respect to a Tranche). The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender as to the effectiveness of each Refinancing Amendment. Each of the parties hereto hereby agrees that, upon the effectiveness of any Refinancing Amendment, this Agreement shall be deemed amended and restated or amended to the extent (but only to the extent) necessary to reflect the existence and terms of the Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness incurred pursuant thereto (including any amendments necessary to treat the Loans and Commitments subject thereto as Other Refinancing Term Loans and/or Other Refinancing Term Commitments). Any Refinancing Amendment may, without the consent of any other Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent, the Borrower and any Applicable Borrower, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.21 (including without limitation, the addition of customary Defaulting Lender provisions with respect to any Lenders providing Other Refinancing Revolving Loans and Other Refinancing Revolving Commitments). This Section 2.21 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.15 or 9.02 to the contrary.

Section 2.22 Illegality. If any Lender determines that any law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for any Lender or its applicable lending office to make, maintain or fund Loans whose interest is determined by reference to the LIBO Rate, or to determine or charge interest rates based upon the LIBO Rate, or any Governmental Authority has imposed material restrictions on the authority of such Lender to purchase or sell, or to take deposits of, Dollars in the London interbank market, then, on notice thereof by such Lender to the Applicable Borrower through the Administrative Agent, (i) any obligation of such Lender to make or continue Eurocurrency Loans or to convert ABR Loans to Eurocurrency Loans shall be suspended and (ii) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender making or maintaining ABR Loans the interest rate on which is determined by reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate, the interest rate on which ABR Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate. Upon receipt of such notice, (x) the Applicable Borrower shall, upon demand from such Lender

 

92


(with a copy to the Administrative Agent), prepay or, if applicable, convert all Eurocurrency Loans of such Lender to ABR Loans (the interest rate on which ABR Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component of the Alternate Base Rate), either on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, if such Lender may lawfully continue to maintain such Eurocurrency Loans to such day, or immediately, if such Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain such Eurocurrency Loan and (y) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender determining or charging interest rates based upon (A) the LIBO Rate, the Administrative Agent shall during the period of such suspension compute the Alternate Base Rate applicable to such Lender without reference to the Adjusted LIBO Rate component thereof until the Administrative Agent is advised in writing by such Lender that it is no longer illegal for such Lender to determine or charge interest rates based upon the LIBO Rate. Upon any such prepayment or conversion, the Applicable Borrower shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so prepaid or converted.

Section 2.23 Defaulting Lenders.

(a) 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:

(1) such Defaulting Lender’s right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent with respect to this Agreement shall be restricted as set forth in the definition of Required Lenders.

(b) Defaulting Lender Cure. If a Lender ceases to be a Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein (which may include arrangements with respect to any cash collateral), that Lender will, to the extent applicable, take such actions as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the applicable Loans to be held pro rata by the applicable Lenders in accordance with the applicable Commitments, whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower or any Additional Borrower while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and 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 that Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender.

ARTICLE III

Representations and Warranties

In order to induce the Administrative Agent and the Lenders to enter into this Agreement on the Closing Date and to make each Loan or other extension of credit to be made hereunder on the Closing Date and on the date of each other Borrowing, each of Irish Holdco, its Restricted Subsidiaries and, if applicable, each Additional Borrower, represents and warrants to the Administrative Agent and Lenders that, on the Closing Date (after giving effect to the Transactions) and on the date of each other Borrowing, that each of the following statements are true and correct in all material respects:

Section 3.01 Organization; Powers; Subsidiaries. Each of Irish Holdco and its Material Subsidiaries is duly organized or incorporated, as the case may be, and validly existing and (to the extent the concept is applicable in such jurisdiction) in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization, has all requisite power and authority to carry on its business as now conducted and, except where the failure to do so, individually or in the aggregate, could not reasonably be expected to result in a

 

93


Material Adverse Effect, is qualified to do business in, and (to the extent the concept is applicable in such jurisdiction) is in good standing in, every jurisdiction where such qualification is required. Schedule 3.01 hereto identifies each Subsidiary (other than Subsidiaries in respect of which Irish Holdco and its Subsidiaries own less than 50% of the Equity Interests thereof) as of the Closing Date, noting whether such Subsidiary is a Material Subsidiary, whether such Subsidiary is an Unrestricted Subsidiary, the jurisdiction of its incorporation or organization, as the case may be, the percentage of issued and outstanding shares of each class of its capital stock or other equity interests owned by Irish Holdco and the other Subsidiaries and, if such percentage is not 100% (excluding directors’ qualifying shares as required by law), a description of each class issued and outstanding. All of the outstanding shares of capital stock and other equity interests of each Material Subsidiary are validly issued and outstanding and fully paid and non-assessable (as such term is determined under applicable law) and all such shares and other equity interests owned by Irish Holdco or another Material Subsidiary are owned, beneficially and of record, by Irish Holdco or such Material Subsidiary free and clear of all Liens, other than Liens created under the Loan Documents and Liens permitted by Section 6.02. As of the Closing Date (and except pursuant to the Acquisition Agreement), there are no outstanding commitments or other obligations of any Material Subsidiary to issue, and no options, warrants or other rights of any Person to acquire, any shares of any class of capital stock or other equity interests of any Material Subsidiary.

Section 3.02 Authorization; Enforceability. The Transactions are within each Loan Party’s corporate or other organizational powers and have been (or, except with respect to the Loan Documents executed by one or more Loan Parties on the Closing Date, will on or prior to the Closing Date be) duly authorized by all necessary corporate or other organizational actions and, if required, actions by shareholders, members or equity holders. The Loan Documents and Acquisition Documentation to which each Loan Party is a party have been duly executed and delivered by such Loan Party and constitute a legal, valid and binding obligation of such Loan Party, enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other laws affecting creditors’ rights generally and subject to general principles of equity, regardless of whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law.

Section 3.03 Governmental Approvals; No Conflicts. The Transactions (a) do not require any consent or approval of, registration or filing with, or any other action by, any Governmental Authority, except such as have been obtained or made and are in full force and effect and except for (x) filings or registrations necessary to perfect Liens created pursuant to the Loan Documents and (y) consents, approvals, registrations, filings or other actions that will be obtained or made in connection with the Acquisition on or prior to the Closing Date, (b) will not violate any applicable law or regulation (except such non-compliance that, individually or in the aggregate, could not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect) or the charter, by-laws or other Organizational Documents of Irish Holdco or any of its Material Subsidiaries or any order of any Governmental Authority, (c) will not violate in any material respect or result in a default under any indenture, any Material Agreement or other material instrument binding upon Irish Holdco or any of its Material Subsidiaries or its assets, or give rise to a right thereunder to require any payment to be made by Irish Holdco or any of its Material Subsidiaries (other than the Indebtedness set forth on Schedule 3.03), and (d) will not result in the creation or imposition of any Lien on any asset of Irish Holdco or any of its Material Subsidiaries, other than Liens created under the Loan Documents.

Section 3.04 Financial Condition; No Material Adverse Change. (a) Irish Holdco has heretofore furnished to the Lenders (i) the condensed consolidated balance sheet and statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ equity (deficit) and cash flows as of and for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2012, December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2014 for Target and its subsidiaries, reported on by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, (ii) the consolidated balance sheet and statements of comprehensive loss, stockholders’ equity (loss) and cash flows as of and for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2012

 

94


and December 31, 2013 for the Borrower and its subsidiaries, reported on by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, and (iii) the consolidated balance sheet and statements of comprehensive loss, shareholders’ equity (loss) and cash flows as of and for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014 for Irish Holdco and its subsidiaries, reported on by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. Such financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position and results of operations and cash flows of Target and its subsidiaries and the financial position and results of operations and cash flows of Irish Holdco and its consolidated Subsidiaries, as the case may be, as of such dates and for such periods in accordance with GAAP.

(b) Since December 31, 2014 (for this purpose, assuming that the Transaction had been consummated before December 31, 2014), there has been no material adverse change in the business, assets, operations or condition, financial or otherwise, of Irish Holdco and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole.

Section 3.05 Properties. (a) Each of Irish Holdco and its Material Subsidiaries has good title to, or (to the knowledge of Irish Holdco) valid leasehold interests in, all its real and personal property (excluding intellectual property, which is considered in Section 3.05(b)) material to its business, except for minor defects in title that do not interfere with its ability to conduct its business as currently conducted or to utilize such properties for their intended purposes.

(b) Each of Irish Holdco and its Subsidiaries owns without restriction, free and clear of all Liens other than Permitted Liens, or is licensed to use, all trademarks, trade names, copyrights, patents and other intellectual property used in or necessary to the business of Irish Holdco and its Subsidiaries, except as would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. All such intellectual property is, to the knowledge of Irish Holdco, valid and enforceable and all registrations and applications for such intellectual property are, to the knowledge of Irish Holdco (to the extent such intellectual property is licensed from third parties), subsisting and have not expired or been abandoned except as could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. Except as set forth in Schedule 3.05 attached hereto, Irish Holdco’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 and the Target’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, no claim has been asserted and is pending by any Person challenging or questioning the use of any such intellectual property or the validity or effectiveness of any such intellectual property, nor does Irish Holdco know of any valid basis for any such claim, except for such claims that, individually or in the aggregate, could not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

Section 3.06 Litigation, Environmental and Labor Matters. (a) Except as set forth on Schedule 3.06 hereto, Irish Holdco’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 and the Target’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, there are no actions, suits, proceedings or investigations by or before any arbitrator or Governmental Authority pending against or, to the knowledge of Irish Holdco, threatened against or affecting Irish Holdco or any of its Subsidiaries that could reasonably be expected, individually or in the aggregate, to result in a Material Adverse Effect. Since December 31, 2014, as of the Closing Date, there have been no developments in any of the matters disclosed in Schedule 3.06 or in the registration statement or the Annual or Quarterly Reports described above which could reasonably be expected, individually or in the aggregate with any such other matters or any additional actions, suits, proceedings or investigations, to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

(b) Except with respect to matters that, individually or in the aggregate, could not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect, (A) neither Irish Holdco nor any of its Subsidiaries (i) has failed to comply with any Environmental Law or to obtain, maintain or comply with any permit, license or other approval required under any Environmental Law, (ii) is subject to any

 

95


Environmental Liability or (iii) has received written notice of any pending or threatened claim with respect to any Environmental Liability; and (B) no Hazardous Materials are present at or have been Released at, in, on or under any real property (including real property formerly owned or operated by Irish Holdco or its Subsidiaries, or any location where Hazardous Materials have been sent for re-use, recycling, treatment, storage or disposal) that would reasonably be expected to give rise to any Environmental Liability of Irish Holdco or any of its Subsidiaries.

(c) As of the Closing Date, there are no strikes, lockouts or slowdowns against Irish Holdco or any of its Subsidiaries pending or, to the knowledge of Irish Holdco, threatened that have resulted in, or could reasonably be expected to result in, a Material Adverse Effect. The hours worked by and payments made to employees of Irish Holdco and its Subsidiaries have not been in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act or any other applicable Federal, state, local or foreign law relating to such matters that has resulted in, or could reasonably be expected to result in, a Material Adverse Effect. All material payments due from Irish Holdco or any of its Subsidiaries, or for which any claim may be made against Irish Holdco or any of its Subsidiaries, on account of wages and employee health and welfare insurance and other benefits, have been paid or accrued as liabilities on the books of Irish Holdco or such Subsidiary except to the extent that the failure to do so has not resulted in, and could not reasonably be expected to result in, a Material Adverse Effect. The consummation of the Transactions will not give rise to any right of termination or right of renegotiation on the part of any union under any collective bargaining agreement under which Irish Holdco or any of its Material Subsidiaries are bound.

Section 3.07 Compliance with Laws and Agreements. Except as set forth in Schedule 3.07 hereto, each of Irish Holdco and its Subsidiaries is in compliance with all laws, regulations and orders of any Governmental Authority applicable to it or its property, operations or assets and all indentures, agreements and other instruments binding upon it or its property, except where such non-compliance would not reasonably be expected to result, individually or in the aggregate, in a Material Adverse Effect.

Section 3.08 Investment Company Status. Neither Irish Holdco nor any of its Restricted Subsidiaries is an “investment company” as defined in, or subject to regulation under, the Investment Company Act of 1940.

Section 3.09 Taxes. Each of Irish Holdco and its Subsidiaries has timely filed or caused to be filed all federal income Tax returns and all other material Tax returns and reports required to have been filed and has paid or caused to be paid all Taxes required to have been paid by it, except Taxes that are being contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings and for which Irish Holdco or such Subsidiary, as applicable, has set aside on its books adequate reserves in accordance with, and to the extent required by, applicable accounting principles. Any Additional Borrower that is not organized in the Republic of Ireland is not tax resident in the Republic of Ireland.

Section 3.10 ERISA.

(a) Except as set forth on Schedule 3.10, each of Irish Holdco and its ERISA Affiliates are in compliance in all material respects with the applicable provisions of ERISA and the Code and the regulations and published interpretations thereunder, and, except as could not reasonably be expected to result in material liability to any Loan Party, all contributions required to be made under the terms of any Plan as of the date of this Agreement have been timely made on, or if not yet due, have been properly reflected on the most recent consolidated balance sheet filed or incorporated by reference in the Companies’ financial statements.

(b) No ERISA Event has occurred or is reasonably expected to occur that, in each case, when taken together with all other such ERISA Events for which liability is reasonably expected to

 

96


occur, could reasonably be expected to result in material liability of Irish Holdco or any of its ERISA Affiliates.

(c) Except as set forth on Schedule 3.10, to the knowledge of Irish Holdco and the Borrower, there has been no prohibited transaction (within the meaning of Section 406 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code and other than a transaction that is exempt under a statutory or administrative exemption) with respect to any Plan that could result in material liability to any Loan Party.

(d) As of the Closing Date, the present value of all accumulated benefit obligations of all underfunded Plans (based on the assumptions used for purposes of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 87) did not, as of the date of the most recent financial statements reflecting such amounts, exceed the fair market value of the assets of all such underfunded Plans.

(e) Using actuarial assumptions and computation methods consistent with Part 1 of Subtitle E of Title IV of ERISA, the aggregate liabilities of each Loan Party or its ERISA Affiliates to all Multiemployer Plans in the event of a complete withdrawal therefrom, as of the close of the most recent fiscal year of each such Multiemployer Plan, could not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

(f) Each Non-U.S. Plan has been maintained in compliance in all material respects with its terms and with the requirements of any and all applicable laws, statutes, rules, regulations and orders and has been maintained, where required, in good standing with applicable regulatory authorities. All contributions required to be made with respect to a Non-U.S. Plan have been timely made, except as would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. Neither Irish Holdco nor any of its Subsidiaries has incurred any obligation in connection with the termination of, or withdrawal from, any Non-U.S. Plan, except as would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. With respect to each Non-U.S. Plan, neither Irish Holdco nor any of its ERISA Affiliates or any of their respective directors, officers, employees or agents has engaged in a transaction which would subject Irish Holdco or any Subsidiary, directly or indirectly, to a tax or civil penalty which could reasonably be expected, individually or in the aggregate, to result in a Material Adverse Effect. With respect to each Non-U.S. Plan, reserves have been established in the financial statements furnished to Lenders in respect of any unfunded liabilities in accordance with applicable law or, where required, in accordance with ordinary accounting practices in the jurisdiction in which such Non-U.S. Plan is maintained. As of the Closing Date, the present value of the aggregate accumulated benefit liabilities of all such Non-U.S. Plans (based on those assumptions used to fund each such Non-U.S. Plan) did not, as of the last annual valuation date applicable thereto, exceed by more than 200,000 CHF (or the Dollar or foreign currency equivalent thereof as of the date of such determination) the fair market value of the assets of all such Non-U.S. Plans.

Section 3.11 Disclosure. All written or formally presented information other than any projections and information of a general economic or general industry nature, furnished (a) prior to the Closing Date, by or on behalf of Irish Holdco and (b) from and after the Closing Date (including all such information contained in the Confidential Information Memorandum (and all information incorporated by reference therein) and in the Loan Documents) by or on behalf of Irish Holdco or any Subsidiary to the Administrative Agent, any of its Affiliates or any Lender pursuant to or in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document, taken as a whole together with all other written information so delivered on or prior to any date of determination (including this Agreement) and all information contained in regular or periodic reports filed by or on behalf of Irish Holdco or the Target with the SEC or any similar Governmental Authority on or prior to such date is (or will when furnished be) complete and correct in all material respects and does not (or will not when furnished) contain any untrue statement of material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements

The designation of any Unrestricted Subsidiary as a Restricted Subsidiary after the Closing Date shall constitute (i) the incurrence at the time of designation of any Investment, Indebtedness or Liens of such Subsidiary existing at such time and (ii) a return on any Investment by the applicable Loan Party in Unrestricted Subsidiaries pursuant to the preceding sentence in an amount equal to the fair market value at the date of such designation of such Loan Party’s Investment in such Subsidiary. Notwithstanding the foregoing, none of Irish Holdco, the Borrower or any Additional Borrower shall be permitted to be an Unrestricted Subsidiary.

Section 5.11 Maintenance of Ratings. Use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Loans and Irish Holdco’s corporate credit and corporate family credit rating to continue to be rated by Standard & Poor’s Ratings Group and Moody’s Investors Service Inc., as applicable (but not to maintain a specific rating).

Section 5.12 Post-Closing Schedule. Within the time periods specified on Schedule 1.01D hereto (as each may be extended by the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion), provide such Collateral Documents and complete such undertakings as are set forth on Schedule 1.01D hereto.

119


the incurrence of such Indebtedness and (ii) not later than three Business Days after consummation of the related short form merger, such Indebtedness (x) is extinguished or retired or (y) otherwise constitutes a Permitted Investment; and

(xxi) Indebtedness of Irish Holdco or of any of the Restricted Subsidiaries in an aggregate principal amount on the date of incurrence that, when taken together with all other Indebtedness of Irish Holdco and the Restricted Subsidiaries then outstanding and incurred pursuant to this clause (xxi), does not exceed the greater of $90,000,000 or 2.50% of Total Assets.

(c) For purposes of determining compliance with any Dollar-denominated restriction on the incurrence of Indebtedness, the Dollar-equivalent principal amount of Indebtedness denominated in a foreign currency shall be calculated based on the relevant currency exchange rate in effect on the date such Indebtedness was incurred, in the case of term debt, or first committed, in the case of revolving credit debt; provided, that if such Indebtedness is incurred to extend, replace, refund, refinance, renew or defease other Indebtedness denominated in a foreign currency, and such extension, replacement, refunding, refinancing, renewal or defeasance would cause the applicable Dollar-denominated restriction to be exceeded if calculated at the relevant currency exchange rate in effect on the date of such extension, replacement, refunding, refinancing, renewal or defeasance, such Dollar-denominated restriction shall be deemed not to have been exceeded so long as the principal amount of such refinancing Indebtedness does not exceed the principal amount of such Indebtedness being extended, replaced, refunded, refinanced, renewed or defeased, plus the aggregate amount of fees, underwriting discounts, premiums and other costs and expenses incurred in connection with such refinancing. The principal amount of any Indebtedness incurred to refinance other Indebtedness, if incurred in a different currency from the Indebtedness being refinanced, shall be calculated based on the currency exchange rate applicable to the currencies in which such respective Indebtedness is denominated that is in effect on the date of such refinancing;

(d) The accrual of interest, the accretion of accreted value and the payment of interest in the form of additional Indebtedness shall not be deemed to be an incurrence of Indebtedness for purposes of this Section 6.01. The principal amount of any non-interest bearing Indebtedness or other discount security constituting Indebtedness at any date shall be the principal amount thereof that would be shown on a balance sheet of Irish Holdco dated such date prepared in accordance with GAAP.

(e) Irish Holdco will not, and will not permit any Guarantor to, directly or indirectly incur any Indebtedness (including Permitted Debt) that is contractually subordinated or junior in right of payment to any Indebtedness of Irish Holdco or such Guarantor, as the case may be, unless such Indebtedness is expressly subordinated in right of payment to the Obligations or the applicable Guarantee to the extent and in the same manner as such Indebtedness is subordinated to other Indebtedness of Irish Holdco or such Guarantor, as the case may be; provided, that (i) unsecured Indebtedness shall not be treated as subordinated or junior to any other Indebtedness merely because it is unsecured and (ii) Indebtedness shall not be treated as subordinated or junior in right of payment to other Indebtedness merely because such Indebtedness has a junior priority with respect to any collateral.

Section 6.02 Liens. Irish Holdco will not, and will not permit any Restricted Subsidiary to, directly or indirectly, incur or permit to exist any Lien (the “Initial Lien”) of any nature whatsoever on any of its properties (including Equity Interests of a Restricted Subsidiary), whether owned at the Closing Date or thereafter acquired, securing any Indebtedness, other than Permitted Liens.

Section 6.03 Asset Sales. (a) Irish Holdco will not, and will not permit any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to, consummate an Asset Sale unless:

 

120


(i) Irish Holdco (or its Restricted Subsidiary, as the case may be) receives consideration at least equal to the fair market value (measured as of the date of the definitive agreement with respect to such Asset Sale) of the assets or shares of Equity Interests of a Restricted Subsidiary issued or sold or otherwise disposed of; and

(ii) at least 75% of the consideration received in the Asset Sale by Irish Holdco or such Restricted Subsidiary is in the form of cash or Cash Equivalents. For purposes of this clause (ii), the following consideration shall be deemed to be cash consideration: (A) any securities, notes or other obligations received by Irish Holdco or any Restricted Subsidiary that are converted within 180 days into cash or Cash Equivalents shall be deemed to be cash or Cash Equivalents, (B) any consideration arising from the assumption of liabilities, and (C) any contingent or deferred consideration payable in cash or Cash Equivalents).

(b) Pending the final application of any Net Proceeds, Irish Holdco (or the applicable Restricted Subsidiary) may invest the Net Proceeds in any manner that is not prohibited by this Agreement.

Section 6.04 Restricted Payments, Investments, Loans, Advances, Guarantees and Acquisitions. (a) Irish Holdco will not, and will not permit any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to, directly or indirectly make any Restricted Payment, unless:

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

(ii) immediately after giving effect to such Restricted Payment, on a pro forma basis as if such Restricted Payment had been made at the beginning of the applicable Test Period, the First Lien Net Leverage Ratio shall not exceed 3.50:1.00;

(iii) such Restricted Payment, together with the aggregate amount of all other Restricted Payments made by Irish Holdco and its Restricted Subsidiaries since the Closing Date (including Restricted Payments permitted by Section 6.04(b)(i), but excluding all other Restricted Payments permitted by Section 6.04(b)), is less than the sum, without duplication, of:

(C) 100% of the aggregate amount received in cash and the fair market value of property (other than cash) and marketable securities received by Irish Holdco or a Restricted Subsidiary after the Closing Date by means of (i) the sale or other disposition (other than to Irish Holdco or a Restricted Subsidiary) of Restricted Investments made by Irish Holdco or its Restricted Subsidiaries and repurchases and redemptions of such Restricted Investments from Irish Holdco or its Restricted Subsidiaries and repayments of loans or advances which constitute Restricted Investments of Irish Holdco or its Restricted Subsidiaries, (ii) the sale (other than to Irish Holdco or a Restricted Subsidiary) of the Equity Interests of an Unrestricted Subsidiary, (iii) payments of interest, distributions or dividends in respect of Restricted Investments, in each case to the extent that such amounts were not otherwise included in the Consolidated Net Income of Irish Holdco for such period and (iv) a distribution or dividend from an Unrestricted Subsidiary (other than in each case such Investment constituted a Permitted Investment); plus

The Agents may perform any and all their duties and exercise their rights and powers by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by the respective Agent. The Agents and any such sub-agent may perform any and all their duties and exercise its rights and powers through their respective Related Parties. The exculpatory provisions of the preceding paragraphs shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Related Parties of the Agents and any such sub-agent, and shall apply to their respective activities in connection with the syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein as well as activities as an Agent.

its resignation, then the retiring Collateral Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Collateral Agent which shall be a bank with an office in New York, New York, or an Affiliate of any such bank. Upon the acceptance of its appointment as Collateral Agent hereunder by a successor, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Collateral Agent, and the retiring Collateral Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. The fees payable by the Borrower and any Additional Borrower to a successor Collateral Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between the Borrower and such successor. After the Collateral Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article VIII and Section 9.03 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Collateral Agent, its sub-agents and their respective Related Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while it was acting as Collateral Agent.

Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Agents or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement. Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Agents or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder.

None of the Lenders, if any, identified in this Agreement as a Lead Arranger, an Amendment No. 1 Arranger, an Amendment No. 2 Arranger, an Amendment No. 3 Arranger, a Co-Documentation Agent or a Co-Syndication Agent shall have any right, power, obligation, liability, responsibility or duty under this Agreement other than those applicable to all Lenders as such. Without limiting the foregoing, none of such Lenders shall have or be deemed to have a fiduciary relationship with any Lender. Each Lender hereby makes the same acknowledgments with respect to the relevant Lenders in their respective capacities as a Lead Arranger, Amendment No. 1 Arranger, Amendment No. 2 Arranger, Amendment No. 3 Arranger, Co-Documentation Agent and/or Co-Syndication Agent, as applicable, as it makes with respect to the Agents in the preceding paragraph.

The Lenders are not partners or co-venturers, and no Lender shall be liable for the acts or omissions of, or (except as otherwise set forth herein in case of the Agents) authorized to act for, any other Lender. The Agents shall have the exclusive right on behalf of the Lenders to enforce the payment of the principal of and interest on any Loan after the date such principal or interest has become due and payable pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

In their respective capacities, the Agents are “representatives” of the Secured Parties within the meaning of the term “secured party” as defined in the New York Uniform Commercial Code. Each Lender authorizes the Agents to enter into each of the Collateral Documents to which it is a party and to take all action contemplated by such documents. Each Lender agrees that no Secured Party (other than the Agents) shall have the right individually to seek to realize upon the security granted by any Collateral Document, it being understood and agreed that such rights and remedies may be exercised solely by the Agents for the benefit of the Secured Parties upon the terms of the Collateral Documents. In the event that any Collateral is hereafter pledged by any Person as collateral security for the Secured Obligations, the Agents are hereby authorized, and hereby granted a power of attorney, to execute and deliver on behalf of the Secured Parties any Loan Documents necessary or appropriate to grant and perfect a Lien on such Collateral in favor of the Collateral Agent on behalf of the Secured Parties. The Lenders hereby authorize the Collateral Agent to release or, as applicable, subordinate any Lien granted to or held by the Collateral Agent upon any Collateral and to enter into non-disturbance or similar agreements, in each case, in connection with any Indebtedness incurred pursuant to Section 6.01(b)(xvi)(ii) and any other Indebtedness described in Section 9.13, in connection with dispositions of

 

137


assets permitted under Section 6.02 or, other than with respect to lien release, in connection with licensing or sub-licensing transactions permitted under Sections 6.02 and 6.03, all as described further therein. Upon request by the Collateral Agent at any time, the Lenders will confirm in writing the Collateral Agent’s authority to release or subordinate particular types or items of Collateral and enter into non-disturbance or similar agreements pursuant hereto.

The Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent are authorized to enter into any Intercreditor Agreement (and any amendments, amendments and restatements, restatements or waivers of or supplements to or other modifications to, and extensions, restructuring, renewals, replacements of, such agreements) in connection with the incurrence by any Loan Party of any Permitted Junior Secured Refinancing Debt, Permitted Pari Passu Secured Refinancing Debt or Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness with respect thereto, or any other Indebtedness permitted by the terms of this Agreement to be secured by the Collateral on a pari passu or junior priority secured basis, in each case in order to permit such Indebtedness to be secured by a valid, perfected Lien (with such priority as may be designated by Irish Holdco or relevant Restricted Subsidiary, to the extent such priority is permitted by the Loan Documents), and the parties hereto acknowledge that each Intercreditor Agreement is (if entered into) binding upon them. Each Lender (a) understands, acknowledges and agrees that Liens may be created on the Collateral pursuant to the documentation relating to any Indebtedness incurred as permitted by this Agreement which is (in accordance with the terms hereof) to be secured thereby, on a pari passu, or junior, secured basis to the Liens securing the Secured Obligations, which Liens securing any such other Indebtedness shall be subject to the terms and conditions of the relevant Intercreditor Agreement executed and delivered as required hereby, (b) hereby agrees that it will be bound by and will take no actions contrary to the provisions of the respective Intercreditor Agreement (if entered into) and (c) hereby authorizes and instructs the Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent to enter into any Intercreditor Agreement (and any amendments, amendments and restatements, restatements or waivers of or supplements to or other modifications to, such agreements) in connection with the incurrence by any Loan Party of any secured Indebtedness as contemplated above, in order to permit such Indebtedness to be secured by a valid, perfected Lien (with such priority as may be designated by the Applicable Borrower or relevant Restricted Subsidiary, to the extent such priority is permitted by the Loan Documents), and to subject the Liens on the Collateral securing the Secured Obligations to the provisions thereof.

THE AGENT PARTIES (AS DEFINED BELOW) DO NOT WARRANT THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE BORROWER MATERIALS OR THE ADEQUACY OF THE PLATFORM, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM LIABILITY FOR ERRORS IN OR OMISSIONS FROM THE BORROWER MATERIALS. NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS OR FREEDOM FROM VIRUSES OR OTHER CODE DEFECTS, IS MADE BY ANY AGENT PARTY IN CONNECTION WITH THE BORROWER MATERIALS OR THE PLATFORM.

Section 9.02 Waivers; Amendments. (a) No failure or delay by the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent or any Lender in exercising any right or power hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such a right or power, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power. The rights and remedies of the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent and the Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies that they would otherwise

 

139


have. No waiver of any provision of any Loan Document or consent to any departure by any Applicable Borrower therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by paragraph (b) of this Section 9.02, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the making of a Loan shall not be construed as a waiver of any Default, regardless of whether the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent or any Lender may have had notice or knowledge of such Default at the time.

(b) Except as provided in Section 2.17 with respect to an Incremental Amendment, Section 2.19 with respect to an Extension Amendment and Section 2.21 with respect to a Refinancing Amendment, neither this Agreement, any other Loan Document nor any provision hereof or thereof may be waived, amended or modified except pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by (A) the Applicable Borrower and the Required Lenders or by the Applicable Borrower and the Administrative Agent with the consent of the Required Lenders; provided that no such agreement shall (i) increase the Commitment of any Lender without the written consent of such Lender, (ii) reduce the principal amount of any Loan or reduce the rate of interest thereon or reduce any fees payable hereunder, without the written consent of each Lender directly affected thereby; provided that only the consent of the Required Lenders shall be necessary to reduce or waive any obligation of the Borrower and any Additional Borrower to pay interest or fees at the applicable default rate set forth in Section 2.10(c), (iii) postpone the scheduled date of payment of the principal amount of any Loan (other than any reduction of the amount of, or any extension of the payment date for, the mandatory prepayments required under Section 2.08, in each case which shall only require the approval of the Required Lenders), or any interest thereon (other than interest payable at the applicable default rate of interest set forth in Section 2.10(c)), or any fees payable hereunder, or reduce the amount of, waive or excuse any such payment, or postpone the scheduled date of expiration of any Commitment, without the written consent of each Lender directly affected thereby, (iv) change Section 2.15(b) or (c) in a manner that would alter the pro rata sharing of payments required thereby, without the written consent of each Lender directly and adversely affected thereby, (v) change any of the provisions of this Section 9.02 or the definitions of “Required Lenders” or “Majority in Interest” or any other provision hereof specifying the number or percentage of Lenders required to waive, amend or modify any rights hereunder or make any determination or grant any consent hereunder, without the written consent of each Lender (it being understood that, solely with the consent of the parties prescribed by Section 2.17 or Section 2.21 to be parties to an Incremental Amendment or a Refinancing Amendment, as applicable, Incremental Loans and Other Refinancing Loans may be included in the determination of Required Lenders on substantially the same basis as the Term Loans are included on the Closing Date), (vi) release all or substantially all of the Guarantors from their obligations under the Guaranty without the written consent of each Lender, (vii) except as provided in Section 9.13 or in any Collateral Document, release all or substantially all of the Collateral, without the written consent of each Lender or (viii) change any provisions of any Loan Document in a manner that by its terms adversely affects the rights in respect of payments due (including, for the avoidance of doubt, scheduled date of payment of the principal amount of any Loan (or any interest thereon), mandatory prepayments or postpone the scheduled date of expiration of any Commitment) to Lenders holding Loans of any Class differently than those holding Loans of any other Class without the written consent of Lenders representing a Majority in Interest of each adversely affected Class; provided, further, that no such agreement shall amend, modify or otherwise affect the rights or duties of the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent hereunder without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent, as the case may be.

(c) Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Agreement and any other Loan Document may be amended (or amended and restated) with the written consent of the Required Lenders, the Administrative Agent and the Borrower (and any Additional Borrower) (x) to add one or more credit facilities (in addition to the Incremental Term Loans pursuant to an Incremental Amendment and any Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness pursuant to a Refinancing Amendment) to this Agreement

 

140


and to permit extensions of credit from time to time outstanding thereunder and the accrued interest and fees in respect thereof to share ratably in the benefits of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents with the Term Loans, Incremental Term Loans and the accrued interest and fees in respect thereof and (y) to include appropriately the Lenders holding such credit facilities in any determination of the Required Lenders and Lenders, and for purposes of the relevant provisions of Section 2.15(b).

(d) If, in connection with any proposed amendment, waiver or consent requiring the consent of “each Lender” or “each Lender directly affected thereby,” the consent of the Required Lenders is obtained, but the consent of other necessary Lenders is not obtained (any such Lender whose consent is necessary but not obtained being referred to herein as a “Non-Consenting Lender”), then the Borrower (or Additional Borrower, as applicable) may elect to replace a Non-Consenting Lender as a Lender party to this Agreement; provided that, concurrently with such replacement, (i) another bank or other entity (which is reasonably satisfactory to the Borrower (or Additional Borrower, as applicable) and the Administrative Agent) shall agree, as of such date, to purchase for cash the Loans and other Obligations due to the Non-Consenting Lender pursuant to an Assignment and Assumption and to become a Lender for all purposes under this Agreement and to assume all obligations of the Non-Consenting Lender to be terminated as of such date and to comply with the requirements of clause (b) of Section 9.04, and (ii) the Borrower (or Additional Borrower, as applicable) shall pay to such Non-Consenting Lender in same day funds on the day of such replacement (1) all interest, fees and other amounts then accrued but unpaid to such Non-Consenting Lender by each Borrower hereunder to and including the date of termination, including without limitation payments due to such Non-Consenting Lender under Sections 2.12 and 2.14, (2) an amount, if any, equal to the payment which would have been due to such Lender on the day of such replacement under Section 2.13 had the Loans of such Non-Consenting Lender been prepaid on such date rather than sold to the replacement Lender and (3) any amounts owing to such Lender pursuant to Section 2.09(b). A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Borrower to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.

(e) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, (i) if following the date hereof, the Administrative Agent and any Loan Party shall have jointly identified an ambiguity, inconsistency, obvious error or any error or omission of a technical or immaterial nature, in each case, in any provision of the Loan Documents, then the Administrative Agent and the Borrower (and Additional Borrower, as applicable) shall be permitted to amend such provision and such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to any Loan Documents if the same is not objected to in writing by the Required Lenders within five (5) Business Days following receipt of notice thereof (which notice shall be given at least five (5) Business Days prior to any such amendment) and (ii) guarantees, collateral security agreements, pledge agreements and related documents (if any) executed by the Loan Parties in connection with this Agreement may be in a form reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent and may be amended, supplemented and/or waived with the consent of the Administrative Agent at the request of the Borrower (or Additional Borrower, as applicable) without the input or need to obtain the consent of any other Lenders if such amendment or waiver is delivered in order (x) to comply with local law or advice of local counsel, (y) to cure ambiguities, omissions or defects or (z) to cause such guarantees, collateral security agreements, pledge agreement or other documents to be consistent with this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

Section 9.03 Expenses; Indemnity; Damage Waiver. (a) Irish Holdco and the Borrower shall pay (i) all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Agents, the Lead Arrangers, the Amendment No. 1 Arrangers, the Amendment No. 2 Arrangers, the Amendment No. 3 Arranger and their respective Affiliates, including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of counsel for the Agents, in connection with the syndication and distribution (including, without limitation, via the internet or through a service such as Intralinks) of the credit facilities provided for herein, the

 

141


preparation and administration of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents or any amendments, modifications or waivers of the provisions hereof or thereof (whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby shall be consummated) and, (ii) all documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent or any Lender, including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel (other than in-house counsel) for the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent or any Lender, in connection with the enforcement or protection of its rights in connection with this Agreement and any other Loan Document, including its rights under this Section 9.03, or in connection with the Loans made hereunder, including all such out-of-pocket expenses incurred during any workout, restructuring or negotiations in respect of such Loans. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall Irish Holdco or the Borrower be required to reimburse the Lenders for more than one counsel to the Agents (and up to one local counsel in each applicable jurisdiction and regulatory counsel) and one counsel for all of the other Lenders (and up to one local counsel in each applicable jurisdiction and regulatory counsel), unless a Lender or its counsel determines that it would create actual or potential conflicts of interest to not have individual counsel, in which case each Lender may have its own counsel which shall be reimbursed in accordance with the foregoing; provided, that same shall be limited to (A) one counsel to the Administrative Agent and for the Lenders (taken together as a single group or client), (B) if necessary, one local counsel required in any relevant local jurisdiction and applicable special regulatory counsel and (C) if representation of the Administrative Agent and/or all Lenders in such matter by a single counsel would be inappropriate based on the advice of legal counsel due to the existence of an actual or potential conflict of interest, one additional counsel for the Administrative Agent and for each Lender subject to such conflict.

(b) Irish Holdco and the Borrower shall, and jointly and severally agree to, indemnify the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Lead Arrangers, the Amendment No. 1 Arrangers, the Amendment No. 2 Arrangers, the Amendment No. 3 Arranger and each Lender, and each Related Party of any of the foregoing Persons (each such Person being called an “Indemnitee”) against, and hold each Indemnitee harmless from, any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses, including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for any Indemnitee, incurred by or asserted against any Indemnitee arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of (i) the execution or delivery of any Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated thereby, the performance by the parties hereto of their respective obligations thereunder or the consummation of the Transactions or any other transactions contemplated hereby, (ii) any Loan or the use of the proceeds therefrom, (iii) any actual or alleged presence or release of Hazardous Materials on or from any property owned or operated by Irish Holdco or any of its Subsidiaries, or any Environmental Liability related in any way to Irish Holdco or any of its Subsidiaries, or (iv) any actual or prospective claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, whether based on contract, tort or any other theory and regardless of whether (x) any Indemnitee is a party thereto or (y) such matter is initiated by a third party or by Irish Holdco or any of its affiliates; provided that such indemnity shall not, as to any Indemnitee, be available to the extent that such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or related expenses (x) are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee or any of its Related Parties, (y) result from a claim brought by any Loan Party against any Indemnitee for a material breach of such Indemnitee’s obligations hereunder or under any other Loan Document (it being understood and agreed that the failure by any Lender to fund any portion of its 2015 Term Loan Commitment hereunder when the conditions set forth in Section 4.01 have been satisfied and/or waived in accordance with this Agreement shall be deemed a material breach, and (z) result from disputes solely among Indemnitees not involving any act or omission of any Loan Party or any of their respective Related Parties (other than a dispute against the Agents, the Lead Arrangers, the Amendment No. 1 Arrangers or, the Amendment No. 2 Arrangers, or the Amendment No. 3 Arranger in their capacities as such). Without limiting the provisions of Section 2.14(c), this Section 9.03(b) shall not apply with respect to Taxes other than any Taxes that represent losses, claims, damages, etc. from a non-Tax claim.

 

142


(c) To the extent that Irish Holdco or the Borrower fail to pay any amount required to be paid by it to the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent under paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section 9.03, each Lender severally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent, as the case may be, such Lender’s Applicable Percentage (determined as of the time that the applicable unreimbursed expense or indemnity payment is sought) of such unpaid amount (it being understood that the Borrower’s failure to pay any such amount shall not relieve the Borrower of any default in the payment thereof); provided that the unreimbursed expense or indemnified loss, claim, damage, liability or related expense, as the case may be, was incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent in its capacity as such.

(d) To the extent permitted by applicable law, neither Irish Holdco nor the Borrower shall assert, and hereby waive, any claim against any Indemnitee (i) for any damages arising from the use by others of information or other materials obtained through telecommunications, electronic or other information transmission systems (including the Internet) other than damages that are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee or any of its Related Parties, or (ii) on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, the Transactions, any Loan or the use of the proceeds thereof.

(e) All amounts due under this Section 9.03 shall be payable not later than fifteen (15) days after written demand therefor.

Section 9.04 Successors and Assigns. (a) The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, except that (i) neither Irish Holdco, the Borrower nor any Additional Borrower may assign or otherwise transfer any of their rights or obligations hereunder (and any attempted assignment or transfer by any of Irish Holdco or the Borrower shall be null and void) and (ii) no Lender may assign or otherwise transfer its rights or obligations hereunder except to an Eligible Transferee. Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, shall be construed to confer upon any Person (other than the parties hereto, their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, Participants (to the extent provided in paragraph (c) of this Section 9.04) and, to the extent expressly contemplated hereby, the Related Parties of each of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders) any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or by reason of this Agreement.

(b) (i) Subject to the conditions set forth in paragraph (b)(ii) below, any Lender may assign to one or more assignees (other than (x) Irish Holdco and its Affiliates, except to the extent permitted in Section 2.20 and (y) any Person that is not an Eligible Transferee) all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitments and the Loans at the time owing to it) with the prior written consent of:

(A) the Applicable Borrower (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned); provided that any Borrower shall be deemed to have consented to any such assignment unless it shall object thereto by written notice to the Administrative Agent within five (5) Business Days after having received written notice thereof; provided, further, that no consent of the Applicable Borrower shall be required for (x) any assignment by any Agent, Lead Arranger, Amendment No. 1 Arranger (or any affiliate thereof) or, Amendment No. 2 Arranger (or any affiliate thereof) or Amendment No. 3 Arranger (or any affiliate thereof) of Term Loans, Incremental Term B-1 Loans, or Second Amendment Refinancing Term Loans, Third Amendment Refinancing Term

 

143


Loans or related commitments pursuant to the primary syndication of such Term Loans, Incremental Term B-1 Loans or, Second Amendment Refinancing Term Loans (including, for the avoidance of doubt, any Person that shall have executed and delivered a consent to Amendment No. 2 substantially in the form of Annex A thereto indicating the “Assignment Settlement Option”) or Third Amendment Refinancing Term Loans (including, for the avoidance of doubt, any Person that shall have executed and delivered a consent to Amendment No. 3 substantially in the form of Annex I thereto indicating the “Assignment Settlement Option”) and related commitments or (y) an assignment to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender, an Approved Fund or, if an Event of Default under clause (a), (b), (h), (i) or (j) of Article VII has occurred and is continuing, any other assignee; and

(B) the Administrative Agent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed); provided that no consent of the Administrative Agent shall be required for an assignment of all or any portion of a Term Loan to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund.

(ii) Assignments shall be subject to the following additional conditions:

(A) except in the case of an assignment to a Lender or an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund or an assignment of the entire remaining amount of the assigning Lender’s Commitment or Loans of any Class, the amount of the applicable Commitment or Loans of the assigning Lender subject to each such assignment (determined as of the date the Assignment and Assumption with respect to such assignment is delivered to the Administrative Agent) shall not be less than $1,000,000 unless each of the Applicable Borrower and the Administrative Agent otherwise consent; provided that no such consent of the Applicable Borrower shall be required if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and this clause shall not be construed to prohibit the assignment of all the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations in respect of one Class of Commitments or Loans;

(B) each partial assignment shall be made as an assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement; provided that this clause shall not be construed to prohibit the assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations in respect of one Class of Commitments or Loans;

(C) the parties to each assignment shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent an Assignment and Assumption, together with a processing and recordation fee of $3,500, such fee to be paid by either the assigning Lender or the assignee Lender or shared between such Lenders, and which fee may be waived at the discretion of the Administrative Agent;

(D) the assignee, if it shall not be a Lender, shall deliver to the Administrative Agent an Administrative Questionnaire in which the assignee designates one or more credit contacts to whom all syndicate-level information (which may contain material non-public information about Irish Holdco and its affiliates and their Related Parties or their respective securities) will be made available and who may receive such information in accordance with the assignee’s compliance procedures and applicable laws, including Federal and state securities laws;

 

144


(E) without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, no assignment shall be made to a prospective assignee that bears a relationship to the Applicable Borrower as described in Section 108(e)(4) of the Code; and

(F) if, at the time of any assignment, the respective assignee would be entitled to greater increased cost payments pursuant to Section 2.12 than those that apply to the respective assignor, then the respective assignee shall not be entitled to charge the Borrower or any Additional Borrower for any such increased costs which would otherwise be owed to it pursuant to Section 2.12, but in each case only to the extent in excess of those that would have applied to the respective assignor at the time of such assignment.

For the purposes of this Section 9.04(b), the term “Approved Fund” has the following meaning:

Approved Fund” means any Person (other than a natural person) that is (or will be) engaged in making, purchasing, holding or investing in commercial loans and similar extensions of credit in the ordinary course of its business and that is administered, advised or managed by (a) a Lender, (b) an Affiliate of a Lender or (c) an entity or an Affiliate of an entity that administers or manages a Lender.

(iii) Subject to acceptance and recording thereof pursuant to paragraph (b)(iv) of this Section 9.04, from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Assumption the assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement, and the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Assumption covering all of the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.12, 2.13, 2.14 and 9.03). Any assignment or transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this Section 9.04 shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with paragraph (c) of this Section 9.04.

(iv) The Administrative Agent, acting for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrower and any Additional Borrowers, shall maintain at one of its offices located in the United States a copy of each Assignment and Assumption delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders, and the Commitment of, and principal amount of and interest on the Loans owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive (absent manifest error), and the Borrower, the Additional Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes, notwithstanding notice to the contrary. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower, each Additional Borrower and any Lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.

(v) Upon its receipt of a duly completed Assignment and Assumption executed by an assigning Lender and an assignee, the assignee’s completed Administrative Questionnaire (unless the assignee shall already be a Lender hereunder), the processing and recordation fee referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section 9.04 and any written consent to such assignment required by paragraph (b) of this Section 9.04, the Administrative Agent shall accept such Assignment and Assumption and record the information contained therein in the Register;

provided that if either the assigning Lender or the assignee shall have failed to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.04(b), 2.15(d) or 9.03(c), the Administrative Agent shall have no obligation to accept such Assignment and Assumption and record the information therein in the Register unless and until such payment shall have been made in full, together with all accrued interest thereon. No assignment shall be effective for purposes of this Agreement unless it has been recorded in the Register as provided in this paragraph.

(c) (i) Any Lender may, without the consent of the Applicable Borrower or the Administrative Agent, sell participations to one or more banks or other entities (excluding (x) Irish Holdco, the Borrower and their respective Affiliates and (y) any Person that is not an Eligible Transferee) (a “Participant”) in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment and the Loans owing to it); provided that (A) such Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (B) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations, (C) Irish Holdco, the Borrower and any Additional Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement and (D) without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, no participation shall be sold to a prospective participant that bears a relationship to the Applicable Borrower described in Section 108(e)(4) of the Code. Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which a Lender sells such a participation shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right to enforce this Agreement and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement; provided that such agreement or instrument may provide that such Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, modification or waiver described in the first proviso to Section 9.02(b) that affects such Participant. Subject to paragraph (c)(ii) of this Section 9.04, the Borrower and each Additional Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.12, 2.13 and 2.14 (subject to the requirements and limitations therein including the requirements under Section 2.14(e)) to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section 9.04. To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 9.08 as though it were a Lender; provided such Participant agrees to be subject to Section 2.15(c) as though it were a Lender.

(ii) A Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 2.12 or 2.14 than the applicable Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such Participant, unless the sale of the participation to such Participant is made with the Borrower’s or Additional Borrower’s prior written consent (as applicable) or such right to receive a greater payment results from a Change in Law that occurs after the Participant acquired the applicable participation. A Participant shall not be entitled to the benefits of Section 2.14 unless the applicable Borrower or Additional Borrower is notified of the participation sold to such Participant and such Participant agrees, for the benefit of such Borrower or Additional Borrower, to comply with Section 2.14(e), Section 2.14(h) and Section 2.16 as though it were a Lender (it being understood that the documentation required under Section 2.14(e) shall be delivered to the participating Lender and the documentation required under Section 2.14(h) and the documentation required for the purposes of satisfying the procedural formalities referred to in paragraph (5) of the definition of Irish Qualifying Lender (if required) shall be delivered to the Administrative Agent and the applicable Borrower or Additional Borrower). Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the applicable Borrower and Additional Borrowers, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each Participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under the Loan Documents (the “Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant

 

146


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

(d) Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including without limitation any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank or any other central bank, and this Section 9.04 shall not apply to any such pledge or assignment of a security interest; provided that no such pledge or assignment of a security interest shall release a Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.

(e) In the case of any assignment or transfer by a Lender to a new Lender, or any participation by such Lender in favor of a Participant, of all or any part of such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, such Lender and the new Lender or Participant (as applicable) hereby agree that, for the purposes of Article 1278 and/or Article 1281 of the Luxembourg Civil Code (to the extent applicable), any assignment, amendment and/or transfer of any kind permitted under, and made in accordance with the provisions of, this Agreement or any agreement referred to herein to which a Luxembourg Guarantor is a party (including any Collateral Document), any security created or guarantee given under or in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be preserved and shall continue in full force and effect for the benefit of such new Lender or Participant (as applicable).

Section 9.05 Survival. All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made by the Loan Parties in the Loan Documents and in the certificates or other instruments delivered in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be considered to have been relied upon by the other parties hereto and shall survive the execution and delivery of the Loan Documents and the making of any Loans, regardless of any investigation made by any such other party or on its behalf and notwithstanding that the Administrative Agent or any Lender may have had notice or knowledge of any Default or incorrect representation or warranty at the time any credit is extended hereunder, and shall continue in full force and effect as long as the principal of or any accrued interest on any Loan or any fee or any other amount payable under this Agreement or any other Loan Document is outstanding and unpaid (except for Unliquidated Obligations) and so long as the Commitments have not expired or terminated. The provisions of Sections 2.12, 2.13, 2.14 and 9.03 and Article VIII shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of the Loans and the Commitments or the termination of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any provision hereof or thereof.

Section 9.06 Counterparts; Integration; Effectiveness. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto in different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract. This Agreement, the other Loan Documents and any separate letter agreements with respect to fees payable to the Agents constitute the entire contract among the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersede any and all previous agreements and understandings, oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof. This Agreement shall become effective upon the delivery by the Agents, the Lenders, Irish Holdco, the

 

147


Borrower and each Subsidiary Guarantor of executed counterparts of the signature page to this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, upon the effectiveness of (xw) this Agreement, the 2015 Term Loan Commitments shall become enforceable by the Borrower, (yx) Amendment No. 1, the Incremental Term B-1 Commitments shall become enforceable by the Borrower and HPUI and, (zy) Amendment No. 2, the Second Amendment Refinancing Commitments shall become enforceable by the Borrower and HPUI and (z) Amendment No. 3, the Third Amendment Refinancing Commitments shall become enforceable by the Borrower and HPUI. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Agreement by facsimile or by email as a “.pdf” or “.tif” attachment shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement.

Section 9.07 Severability. Any provision of any Loan Document held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability without affecting the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions thereof; and the invalidity of a particular provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate such provision in any other jurisdiction.

Section 9.08 Right of Setoff. If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, each Lender and each of its Affiliates is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final and in whatever currency denominated) at any time held and other obligations at any time owing by such Lender or Affiliate to or for the credit or the account of the Borrower or any Guarantor against any of and all of the Secured Obligations held by such Lender, irrespective of whether or not such Lender shall have made any demand under the Loan Documents and although such obligations may be unmatured; provided that any recovery by any Lender or any Affiliate pursuant to its setoff rights under this Section 9.08 is subject to the provisions of Section 2.15(c). The rights of each Lender under this Section 9.08 are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of setoff) which such Lender may have.

Section 9.09 Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process; Foreign Process Agent. (a) This Agreement and each other Loan Document (except, as to any other Loan Document, as expressly set forth therein) shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the law of the State of New York; provided, however, that (i) the interpretation of the definition of “Target Material Adverse Effect” and whether there shall have occurred a “Target Material Adverse Effect”, (ii) whether the Acquisition has been consummated in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Acquisition Agreement, and (iii) whether the representations and warranties made by Target and its Subsidiaries in the Acquisition Agreement are true and correct and whether as a result of any failure thereof Horizon has the right to terminate its obligations under the Acquisition Agreement (or the right not to consummate the Acquisition pursuant to the Acquisition Agreement) shall be determined in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without regards to conflicts of laws principles that would result in the application of the laws of another jurisdiction.

(b) Each of Irish Holdco, the Borrower and each Subsidiary Guarantor hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of the State of New York sitting in New York County and of the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to any Loan Document, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in such New York State or, to the extent permitted by law, in such Federal court. Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law. Nothing in this Agreement or any other Loan

 

148


Document shall affect any right that the Administrative Agent or any Lender may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document against any Loan Party or its properties in the courts of any jurisdiction.

(c) Each of Irish Holdco, the Borrower and each Subsidiary Guarantor hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent they may legally and effectively do so, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document in any court referred to in paragraph (b) of this Section 9.09. Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court.

(d) Each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 9.01. Nothing in this Agreement or any other Loan Document will affect the right of any party to this Agreement to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.

(e) Irish Holdco and each Subsidiary Guarantor hereby irrevocably and unconditionally appoints the Borrower and its successors hereunder (the “Process Agent”), as its agent to receive on behalf of Irish Holdco and each Subsidiary Guarantor and their respective property all writs, claims, process and summonses in any action or proceeding brought against it in the State of New York. Such service may be made by mailing or delivering a copy of such process to Irish Holdco and each Subsidiary Guarantor in care of the Process Agent at the address specified above for the Process Agent, and Irish Holdco and each Subsidiary Guarantor irrevocably authorizes and directs the Process Agent to accept such service on its behalf. Failure by the Process Agent to give notice to Irish Holdco and each Subsidiary Guarantor or failure of Irish Holdco and each Subsidiary Guarantor to receive notice of such service of process shall not impair or affect the validity of such service on the Process Agent, Irish Holdco and each Subsidiary Guarantor, or of any judgment based thereon. Irish Holdco and each Subsidiary Guarantor covenants and agrees that it shall take any and all reasonable action, including the execution and filing of any and all documents, that may be necessary to continue the delegation of the Process Agent above in full force and effect, and to cause the Process Agent to act as such. Irish Holdco and each Subsidiary Guarantor hereto further covenants and agrees to maintain at all times an agent with offices in New York City to act as its Process Agent. Nothing herein shall in any way be deemed to limit the ability to serve any such writs, process or summonses in any other manner permitted by applicable law.

Any execution and delivery of documents pursuant to this Section 9.13 shall be without recourse to or warranty by the Collateral Agent.

Each of Irish Holdco and Borrower, on behalf of itself and its Subsidiaries, agrees that, in connection with all aspects of the transactions contemplated hereby (including in connection with any amendment, waiver or other modification hereof or of any other Loan Document) and any communications in connection therewith: (i) (A) the arranging and other services regarding this Agreement provided by the Lenders are arm’s-length commercial transactions between Irish Holdco and its Affiliates, on the one hand, and the Lenders and their Affiliates, on the other hand, (B) it has consulted its own legal, accounting, regulatory and tax advisors to the extent it has deemed appropriate, and (C) it is capable of evaluating, and understands and accepts, the terms, risks and conditions of the transactions contemplated hereby and by the other Loan Documents; (ii) (A) each of the Lenders and their Affiliates is and has been acting solely as a principal and, except as expressly agreed in writing by the relevant parties, has not been, is not, and will not be acting as an advisor, agent or fiduciary for Irish Holdco, the Borrower or any of their respective Affiliates, or any other Person and (B) no Lender or any of its Affiliates has any obligation to Irish Holdco, the Borrower or any of their respective Affiliates with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby except, in the case of a Lender, those obligations expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents; and (iii) each of the Lenders and their respective Affiliates may be engaged in a broad range of transactions that involve interests that differ from those of Irish Holdco, Horizon and their respective Affiliates, and no Lender or any of its Affiliates has any obligation to disclose any of such interests to Irish Holdco, the Borrower or their respective Affiliates.

In determining whether the interest contracted for, charged, or received by the Administrative Agent or a Lender exceeds the Maximum Rate, such Person may, to the extent permitted by applicable law, (a) characterize any payment that is not principal as an expense, fee, or premium rather than interest, (b) exclude voluntary prepayments and the effects thereof, and (c) amortize, prorate, allocate, and spread in equal or unequal parts the total amount of interest throughout the contemplated term of the Obligations hereunder.

Section 9.18 Acknowledgement and Consent to Bail-In of EEA Financial Institutions.

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

ARTICLE X

The Guaranty

Section 10.01 The Guarantee. (a) The Guarantors hereby, jointly and severally, guarantee to each Secured Party as hereinafter provided, as primary obligor and not merely as surety, the payment of the Secured Obligations in full in cash when due (whether at stated maturity, as a mandatory prepayment, by acceleration, as a mandatory cash collateralization or otherwise) strictly in accordance with the terms thereof. Each Guarantor hereby further jointly and severally agrees that if any of the Secured Obligations are not paid in full in cash when due (whether at stated maturity, as a mandatory prepayment, by acceleration, as a mandatory cash collateralization or otherwise), each Guarantor will promptly pay the same, without any demand or notice whatsoever, and that in the case of any extension of time of payment or renewal of any of the Secured Obligations, the same will be promptly paid in full in cash when due (whether at extended maturity, as a mandatory prepayment, by acceleration, as a mandatory cash collateralization or otherwise) in accordance with the terms of such extension or renewal.

(b) Each Guarantor, and by its acceptance of this Guaranty, the Administrative Agent and each other Secured Party, hereby confirms that it is the intention of all such Persons that this Guaranty and the Obligations of each Guarantor hereunder not constitute a fraudulent transfer or conveyance for purposes of any Debtor Relief Law, the Uniform Fraudulent Conveyance Act, the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act or any similar foreign, federal or state law to the extent applicable to this Guaranty and the Obligations of each Guarantor hereunder. To effectuate the foregoing intention, the Administrative Agent, the other Secured Parties and the Guarantors hereby irrevocably agree that the Obligations of each Guarantor under this Guaranty at any time shall be limited to the maximum amount as will result in the Obligations of such Guarantor under this Guaranty not constituting a fraudulent transfer or conveyance under applicable law after giving full effect to such Guarantor’s contribution rights but before taking into account any liabilities of such Guarantor under any other guarantee of such Guarantor other than any other guarantee of any obligations that are secured on a pari passu basis with the Obligations.

Section 10.02 Obligations Unconditional. (a) The obligations of the Guarantors under Section 10.01 are absolute and unconditional, irrespective of the value, genuineness, validity, regularity or enforceability of any of the Loan Documents or other documents relating to the Secured Obligations, or any substitution, release, impairment or exchange of any other guarantee of or security for any of the Secured Obligations, and, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, irrespective of any other circumstance whatsoever which might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge or defense of a surety or guarantor (other than payment in full in cash of the Secured Obligations, other than Unliquidated Obligations for which no claim has been made), it being the intent of this Section 10.02 that the obligations of the Guarantors hereunder shall be absolute and unconditional under any and all circumstances. Each Guarantor agrees that it shall have no right of subrogation, indemnity,

 

153


reimbursement or contribution against any other Guarantor for amounts paid under this Article X until such time as the Secured Obligations (other than Unliquidated Obligations for which no claim has been made) have been indefeasibly paid in full in cash and the Commitments have expired or terminated.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, it is agreed that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the occurrence of any one or more of the following shall not alter or impair the liability of any Guarantor hereunder, which shall remain absolute and unconditional as described above:

(b) at any time or from time to time, without notice to any Guarantor, the time for any performance of or compliance with any of the Secured Obligations shall be extended, or such performance or compliance shall be waived;

(c) the maturity of any of the Secured Obligations shall be accelerated, or any of the Secured Obligations shall be modified, supplemented or amended in any respect, or any right under any of the Loan Documents or other documents relating to the Secured Obligations shall be waived or any other guarantee of any of the Secured Obligations or any security therefor shall be released, impaired or exchanged in whole or in part or otherwise dealt with;

(d) any Lien granted to, or in favor of, the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent or any other holder of the Secured Obligations as security for any of the Secured Obligations shall fail to attach or be perfected; or

(e) any of the Secured Obligations shall be determined to be void or voidable (including, without limitation, for the benefit of any creditor of any Guarantor) or shall be subordinated to the claims of any Person (including, without limitation, any creditor of Guarantor).
