Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On September 19, 2018, Amicus Therapeutics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Amicus”) entered into a Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) by and among Amicus, as borrower, certain subsidiaries of Amicus from time to time party thereto, as guarantors (the “Guarantors”), and BioPharma Credit PLC, as lender (the “Lender”). Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in this Item 1.01 have the respective meanings ascribed to such terms in the Loan Agreement.

 

The Loan Agreement provides for a $150 million senior secured Term Loan to be extended to Amicus on or about the Closing Date, subject to entering into a security agreement and delivery of other customary deliverables.  The Term Loan bears interest at a rate equal to 3-month LIBOR plus 7.50% per annum and matures five years from the date of the first credit extension (the “Maturity Date”). To the extent that an Event of Default occurs and is continuing, all amounts outstanding under the Loan Agreement will bear additional interest.

 

The Term Loan will be repaid in four quarterly payments equal to 12.50% thereof starting on the forty-eight month anniversary of the date of the first credit extension with the balance due on the Maturity Date.

 

The Term Loan is subject to mandatory prepayment provisions that require prepayment upon a change of control.  Amicus may prepay the Term Loan in whole at its option at any time. Any prepayment of the Term Loan is subject to certain make-whole premiums and prepayment premiums.

 

The obligations under the Loan Agreement are guaranteed by the Guarantors and secured by a first lien security interest in certain assets of Amicus and the Guarantors.

 

The Loan Agreement contains certain customary representations and warranties, affirmative and negative covenants and events of default applicable to Amicus and the Guarantors, but does not include any financial covenants relating to the achievement or maintenance of revenue or cash flow. If an event of default occurs and is continuing, the Lender may declare all amounts outstanding under the Loan Agreement to be immediately due and payable.

 

The foregoing description of the Loan Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to such Loan Agreement, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

LOAN AGREEMENT

 

THIS LOAN AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”), dated as of September 19, 2018 (the “Effective Date”) by and among AMICUS THERAPEUTICS, INC., a Delaware corporation (as “Borrower”), CALLIDUS BIOPHARMA, INC., a Delaware corporation (as an additional Credit Party), SCIODERM, INC., a Delaware corporation (as an additional Credit Party), MIAMED, INC., a Delaware corporation (as an additional Credit Party), AMICUS BIOLOGICS, INC., a Florida corporation (as an additional Credit Party), AMICUS THERAPEUTICS US, INC., a Delaware corporation (as an additional Credit Party) and BIOPHARMA CREDIT PLC, a public limited company incorporated under the laws of England and Wales (as “Lender”), provides the terms on which Lender shall make, and Borrower shall repay, the Credit Extensions (as hereinafter defined).  The parties hereto agree as follows:

 

1.                                      ACCOUNTING AND OTHER TERMS

 

Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all accounting terms not otherwise defined in this Agreement shall have the meanings assigned to them in conformity with Applicable Accounting Standards.  Calculations and determinations must be made following Applicable Accounting Standards.  If at any time any change in Applicable Accounting Standards would affect the computation of any financial requirement set forth in any Loan Document, and either Borrower or Lender shall so request, Lender and Borrower shall negotiate in good faith to amend such requirement to preserve the original intent thereof in light of such change in Applicable Accounting Standards; provided, that, until so amended, such requirement shall continue to be computed in accordance with Applicable Accounting Standards prior to such change therein.  Without limiting the foregoing, leases shall continue to be classified on a basis consistent with that reflected in the audited consolidated financial statements of Borrower for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 for all purposes of this Agreement, notwithstanding any change in Applicable Accounting Standards relating thereto or the application thereof, unless the parties hereto shall enter into a mutually acceptable amendment addressing such changes, as provided for above.  Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Agreement shall have the meanings set forth in Section 12.  All other terms contained in this Agreement, unless otherwise indicated, shall have the meaning provided by the Code to the extent such terms are defined therein.  All references to “Dollars” or “$” are United States Dollars, unless otherwise noted.

 

For purposes of determining compliance with Section 6 with respect to the amount of any Indebtedness in a currency other than Dollars, no Default or Event of Default shall be deemed to have occurred solely as a result of changes in rates of currency exchange occurring after the time such Indebtedness is incurred, made or acquired (so long as such Indebtedness, at the time incurred, made or acquired, was permitted hereunder).

 

2.                                      LOANS AND TERMS OF PAYMENT

 

2.1.                            Promise to Pay.

 

Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay Lender the outstanding principal amount of the Term Loans advanced to Borrower by Lender and accrued and unpaid interest thereon and any other amounts due hereunder as and when due in accordance with this Agreement.

 

2.2.                            Term Loan.

 

(a)                                 Availability.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including Sections 3.1, 3.2 and 3.4), Lender agrees to make a term loan to Borrower on the Closing Date in a principal amount equal to the Term Loan Amount (the “Term Loan”).  After repayment, the Term Loan may not be re-borrowed.

 

(b)                                 Repayment.

 

(i)                                     Borrower shall make (A) four (4) equal quarterly payments of principal in an amount equal to twelve and one-half percent (12.50%) of the Term Loan Amount commencing on the first Payment Date and continuing on the following three (3) Payment Dates, provided, that if any such day is not a Business Day, the applicable payment shall be due and payable on the first Business Day immediately preceding such Payment Date, and (B) one payment of principal in an amount equal to fifty percent (50.0%) of the Term Loan Amount on the Term Loan Maturity Date.  All unpaid principal with respect to

 



 

the Term Loan is due and payable in full on the Term Loan Maturity Date.  The Term Loan may be prepaid only in accordance with Section 2.2(c), except as provided in Section 8.1 and clause (ii) below.

 

(ii)                                  Notwithstanding clause (i) above, if at any time there is Permitted Convertible Bond Indebtedness outstanding with a stated maturity that is less than 120 days after the Term Loan Maturity Date, and on the date that is 120 days prior to the earliest such maturity of Permitted Convertible Bond Indebtedness (or if such date is not a Business Day, the preceding Business Day) (the “Springing Maturity Determination Date”) (A) the aggregate outstanding Indebtedness under all such Permitted Convertible Bond Indebtedness maturing less than 120 days after the Term Loan Maturity Date is greater than $50,000,000 and (B) the mathematical average closing price per share of Borrower’s publicly-traded common stock for the ten (10) Business Days ending on the Business Day prior to such Springing Maturity Determination Date, is less than 1.2 times the conversion price of any such Permitted Convertible Bond Indebtedness, then, without notice or demand or any other action by Lender, all Obligations (including, for the avoidance of doubt, the Prepayment Premium that is payable pursuant to Section 2.2(f)) shall automatically and immediately upon such Springing Maturity Determination Date be due and payable by Borrower without presentment, demand, protest or other notice of any kind, which are all expressly waived by the Credit Parties hereby, and Borrower shall not be entitled to any further advance of money or extension of credit under this Agreement.

 

(c)                                  Prepayment of Term Loan.

 

(i)                                     Borrower shall have the option, at any time after the Closing Date, to prepay, in whole but not in part, the Term Loan advanced by Lender under this Agreement; provided that (A) Borrower provide written notice to Lender of its election (which shall be irrevocable unless Lender otherwise consents in writing) to prepay all of the Term Loan at least five (5) Business Days prior to such prepayment, and (B) such prepayment shall be accompanied by any and all accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount to be prepaid to the date of prepayment and any amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.2(e) or Section 2.2(f) (as applicable), and all other amounts payable or accrued and not yet paid under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

 

(ii)                                  Upon a Change in Control, Borrower shall promptly, and in any event no later than ten (10) days after the consummation of such Change in Control, notify Lender in writing of the occurrence of a Change in Control, which notice shall include reasonable detail as to the nature, timing and other circumstances of such Change in Control (such notice, a “Change in Control Notice”).  Borrower shall prepay all of the Term Loan in full, no later than ten (10) Business Days after delivery to Lender of the Change in Control Notice, in an amount equal to the sum of (A) all unpaid principal and any and all accrued and unpaid interest with respect to the Term Loan, and (B) any applicable amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.2(e) and Section 2.2(f) and all other amounts payable or accrued and not yet paid under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

 

(d)                                 Prepayment Application.  Any prepayment of the Term Loan pursuant to Section 2.2(c) or as a result of the acceleration of maturity of the Term Loan pursuant to Section 2.2(b)(ii) (together with the accompanying Makewhole Amount or Prepayment Premium that is payable pursuant to Section 2.2(e) or Section 2.2(f), as applicable) shall be paid to Lender for application to the Obligations in the following order:  (i) first, to due and unpaid Lender Expenses, (ii) second, to accrued and unpaid interest at the Default Rate, if any, (iii) third, without duplication of amounts paid pursuant to clause (ii) above, to accrued and unpaid interest at the non-Default Rate, (iv) fourth, to the Prepayment Premium, if applicable, (v) fifth, to the Makewhole Amount, if applicable, (vi) sixth, to the outstanding principal amount of the Term Loan and (vii) seventh, to any remaining amounts then due and payable under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

 

(e)                                  Makewhole Amount.  Any prepayment of the Term Loan by Borrower (i) pursuant to Section 2.2(c) or (ii) as a result of the acceleration of the maturity of the Term Loan pursuant to Section 8.1(a) occurring prior to the 24th-month anniversary of the Closing Date shall, in any such case, be accompanied by payment of an amount equal to the Makewhole Amount.

 

(f)                                   Prepayment Premium.  Any prepayment of the Term Loan by Borrower (i) pursuant to Section 2.2(c) or (ii) as a result of the acceleration of the maturity of the Term Loan pursuant to Section 8.1(a) or

 

3



 

Section 2.2(b)(ii) shall, in any such case, be accompanied by payment of an amount equal to the Prepayment Premium.

 

2.3.                            Payment of Interest on the Credit Extensions.

 

(a)                                 Interest Rate.

 

(i)                                     Subject to Section 2.3(b), the principal amount outstanding under the Term Loan shall accrue interest at a per annum rate equal to the LIBOR Rate plus seven and one-half percent (7.50%) per annum (the “Term Loan Rate”), which interest shall be payable quarterly in arrears in accordance with this Section 2.3.

 

(ii)                                  Interest shall accrue on the Term Loan commencing on, and including, the day on which the Term Loan is made, and shall accrue on the Term Loan, or any portion thereof, for the day on which the Term Loan or such portion is paid.

 

(b)                                 Default Rate. In the event Borrower fails to pay any of the Obligations when due, immediately (and without notice to Borrower or demand by Lender for payment thereof), such past due Obligations shall bear interest at a rate per annum which is three percentage points (3.00%) above the rate that is otherwise applicable thereto (the “Default Rate”), and such interest shall be payable entirely in cash on demand of Lender.  Payment or acceptance of the increased interest rate provided in this Section 2.3(b) is not a permitted alternative to timely payment and shall not constitute a waiver of any Event of Default or otherwise prejudice or limit any rights or remedies of Lender.

 

(c)                                  360-Day Year.  Interest shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and the actual number of days elapsed.

 

(d)                                 Payments.  Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all loan payments (and any other payments hereunder) by Borrower hereunder shall be made on the date specified herein to such bank account of Lender as Lender shall have designated in a written notice to Borrower delivered on or before the Closing Date (which such notice may be updated by Lender from time to time after the Closing Date).  Interest is payable quarterly on the Interest Date of each calendar quarter.  Payments of principal or interest received after 2:00 p.m. on such date are considered received at the opening of business on the next Business Day.  When a payment is due on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment is due the next Business Day and additional fees or interest, as applicable, shall continue to accrue until paid.  All payments to be made by Borrower hereunder or under any other Loan Document, including payments of principal and interest made hereunder and pursuant to any other Loan Document, and all fees, expenses, indemnities and reimbursements, shall be made without set-off, recoupment or counterclaim, in lawful money of the United States and in immediately available funds.

 

(e)                                  If at any time Lender determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that (i) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for determining the rate described in clause (a) of the definition of “LIBOR Rate” and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary or (ii) the circumstances set forth in the immediately preceding clause (i) have not arisen but the supervisor for the administrator of the three-month LIBOR Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over Lender has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the three-month LIBOR Rate shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans, then Lender and Borrower shall endeavor to establish an alternate rate of interest to the three-month LIBOR Rate that gives due consideration to the then prevailing market convention for determining a rate of interest for loans in the United States at such time, and shall enter into an amendment to this Agreement to reflect such alternate rate of interest and such other related changes to this Agreement as may be applicable.

 

2.4.                            ExpensesBorrower shall pay to Lender all Lender Expenses incurred through and after the Effective Date, promptly after receipt of a written demand therefor by Lender, setting forth in reasonable detail such Lender Expenses.

 

2.5.                            Requirements of Law; Increased Costs.  In the event that any applicable Change in Law:

 

4



 

(a)                                 Does or shall subject Lender to any Tax of any kind whatsoever with respect to this Agreement or the Term Loan made hereunder (except, in each case, Indemnified Taxes, Taxes described in clause (b) through (c) of the definition of Excluded Taxes, and Connection Income Taxes);

 

(b)                                 Does or shall impose, modify or hold applicable any reserve, capital requirement, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirements against assets held by, or deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, advances or loans by, or other credit extended by, or any other acquisition of funds by, Lender; or

 

(c)                                  Does or shall impose on Lender any other condition (other than Taxes); and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to Lender (as determined by Lender in good faith using calculation methods customary in the industry) of making, renewing or maintaining the Term Loan or to reduce any amount receivable in respect thereof or to reduce the rate of return on the capital of Lender or any Person controlling Lender,

 

then, in any such case, Borrower shall promptly pay to Lender, within thirty (30) days of its receipt of the certificate described below, any additional amounts necessary to compensate Lender for such additional cost or reduced amounts receivable or rate of return as reasonably determined by Lender with respect to this Agreement or the Term Loan made hereunder.  If Lender becomes entitled to claim any additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.5, it shall promptly notify Borrower in writing of the event by reason of which it has become so entitled, and a certificate as to any additional amounts payable pursuant to the foregoing sentence containing the calculation thereof in reasonable detail submitted by Lender to Borrower shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.  The provisions hereof shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the outstanding Term Loan and all other Obligations.  Failure or delay on the part of Lender to demand compensation for any increased costs or reduction in amounts received or receivable or reduction in return on capital under this Section 2.5 shall not constitute a waiver of Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided that Borrower shall not be under any obligation to compensate Lender under this Section 2.5 with respect to increased costs or reductions with respect to any period prior to the date that is 180 days prior to the date of the delivery of the notice required pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this paragraph; 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.

 

2.6.                            Taxes; Withholding, Etc.

 

(a)                                 All sums payable by any Credit Party hereunder and under the other Loan Documents shall (except to the extent required by Requirements of Law) be paid free and clear of, and without any deduction or withholding on account of, any Tax imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any Governmental Authority.  In addition, Borrower agrees to pay, and shall indemnify and hold Lender harmless from, Other Taxes, and as soon as practicable after the date of paying such sum, Borrower shall furnish to Lender the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing payment thereof.

 

(b)                                 If any Credit Party or any other Person is required by Requirements of Law to make any deduction or withholding on account of any Tax (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable Credit Party) from any sum paid or payable by any Credit Party to Lender under any of the Loan Documents: (i) Borrower shall notify Lender in writing of any such requirement or any change in any such requirement promptly after Borrower becomes aware of it; (ii) Borrower shall make any such withholding or deduction; (iii) Borrower shall pay any such Tax before the date on which penalties attach thereto, such payment to be made (if the liability to pay is imposed on any Credit Party) for its own account or (if that liability is imposed on Lender, as the case may be) on behalf of and in the name of Lender in accordance with Requirements of Law; (iv) if the Tax is an Indemnified Tax, the sum payable by such Credit Party in respect of which the relevant deduction, withholding or payment of Indemnified Tax is required shall be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that, after the making of that deduction, withholding or payment (including any deductions for Indemnified Taxes applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.6(b)), Lender receives on the due date a net sum equal to what it would have received had no such deduction, withholding or payment of Indemnified Tax been required or made; and (v) as soon as practicable after paying any sum from which it is required by Requirements of Law to make any deduction or withholding, Borrower shall deliver to Lender evidence reasonably satisfactory to Lender of such deduction, withholding or payment and of the remittance thereof to the relevant taxing or other Governmental Authority.

 

5



 

(c)                                  Borrower shall indemnify Lender for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 2.6(c)) paid by Lender and any liability (including any reasonable expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority.  Any indemnification payment pursuant to this Section 2.6(c) shall be made to Lender within thirty (30) days from written demand therefor.

 

(d)                                 If Lender is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document shall deliver to Borrower, at the time or times reasonably requested by Borrower, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by Borrower as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding.  In addition, Lender, if reasonably requested by Borrower, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by Borrower as will enable Borrower to determine whether or not Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements.  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 2.6(d)(i), (ii) or (iv) below) shall not be required if in Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of Lender.  For avoidance of doubt, for the purposes of this Section 2.6(d), the term “Lender” shall include each applicable assignee.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing:

 

(i)                                     If Lender is organized under the laws of the United States of America or any state thereof, Lender shall deliver to Borrower two (2) copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-9.

 

(ii)                                  If Lender is a Foreign Lender, Lender shall deliver, and shall cause each applicable assignee thereof to deliver, to Borrower, on or prior to, the Closing Date and, the date on which a Lender Transfer involving Lender occurs, as applicable, and at such other times as may be necessary in the determination of Borrower (in the reasonable exercise of its discretion):

 

(1)                                 two (2) properly completed and duly executed original copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, W-8BEN-E, W-8ECI or W-8IMY (along with Form W-9, W-8BEN-E or W-8BEN for each beneficial owner that will receive, directly or indirectly, a payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts payable under any of the Loan Documents), or any successor forms; and

 

(2)                                 if Lender is claiming an exemption from United States withholding Tax pursuant to the “portfolio interest exemption”, it shall provide Borrower with the applicable Internal Revenue Service Form W-8 and a certificate in which Lender represents that it is not a “bank” that entered into any Loan Documents in the ordinary course of its trade or business (within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the IRC), a “10 percent shareholder” of Borrower (within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the IRC), or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the IRC.

 

(iii)                               If Lender is a Foreign Lender it shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to Borrower (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such its becomes a party to this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Borrower), executed copies of any other form prescribed by applicable law 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 law to permit Borrower to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made.

 

(iv)                              If a payment made to Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if 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), Lender shall deliver to Borrower at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or

 

6



 

times reasonably requested by Borrower 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 Borrower as may be necessary for Borrower to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that Lender has complied with its obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment.  Solely for purposes of this clause (iv), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

 

(v)                                 If Lender is required to deliver any forms, statements, certificates or other evidence with respect to United States federal Tax or backup withholding matters pursuant to this Section 2.6(d), Lender hereby agrees, from time to time after the initial delivery by Lender of such forms, certificates or other evidence, whenever a lapse in time, change in circumstances or law, or additional guidance by a Governmental Authority renders such forms, certificates or other evidence obsolete or inaccurate in any material respect, to promptly deliver to Borrowers two (2) new original copies.

 

(vi)                              Borrower shall not be required to pay any additional amount to Lender under Section 2.6(b)(iii) if Lender shall have failed (1) to timely deliver to Borrower the forms, certificates or other evidence referred to in this Section 2.6(d) (each of which shall be complete, accurate and duly executed), or (2) to notify Borrower of its inability to deliver any such forms, certificates or other evidence, as the case may be; provided that, if Lender shall have satisfied the requirements of this Section 2.6(d) on the Closing Date (or on the date Lender initially acquires an interest in the Term Loan), nothing in this last sentence of this Section 2.6(d) shall relieve Borrower of its obligations to pay any additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.6 in the event that, solely as a result of any change in any Requirements of Law or any change in the interpretation, administration or application thereof by any applicable Governmental Authority, Lender is no longer legally entitled to deliver forms, certificates or other evidence at a subsequent date establishing the fact that Lender is not subject to withholding as described herein and in the forms, certificates or other evidence initially provided by Lender.

 

(e)                                  If any party hereto determines that it has received a refund of any Taxes or a credit or offset for any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 2.6 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.6), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund, credit or offset (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, under this Section 2.6 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund).  Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this clause (e) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay, credit or offset such refund to such Governmental Authority and the requirement to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority is not due to the indemnified party’s failure to timely provide complete and accurate Internal Revenue Service forms and other documentation required pursuant to Section 2.6(d) or Section 2.8.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this clause (e), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this clause (e) if the payment of such amount would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the indemnification payments or additional amounts giving rise to such refund had never been paid.  This clause (e) shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.

 

2.7.                            Additional Consideration.  As additional consideration for the making of the Term Loan, on the Closing Date, Borrower shall pay to Lender an amount equal to the product of (a) the Term Loan Amount, multiplied by (b) two percent (2.00%) (such product, the “Additional Consideration”).  The Additional Consideration shall be fully earned when paid and shall not be refundable for any reason whatsoever.

 

2.8.                            Evidence of Debt; Register; Lender’s Books and Records; Term Loan Note.

13



 

(b)                                 The financial statements (including the related notes thereto) of Borrower and its Subsidiaries included in the Exchange Act Documents present fairly in all material respects the consolidated financial condition of Borrower and such Subsidiaries and their consolidated results of operations as of the dates indicated and the results of their operations and the changes in their cash flows for the periods specified.  Such financial statements have been prepared in conformity with Applicable Accounting Standards applied on a consistent basis throughout the periods covered thereby, except as otherwise disclosed therein and, in the case of unaudited, interim financial statements, subject to normal year-end audit adjustments and the exclusion of certain footnotes, and any supporting schedules included in the Exchange Act Documents present fairly in all material respects the information required to be stated therein;

 

(c)                                  Since December 31, 2017, there has not occurred or failed to occur any change or event that has had or could reasonably be expected to have, either alone or in conjunction with any other change(s), event(s) or failure(s), a Material Adverse Change, except as has been disclosed in the Exchange Act Documents; and

 

(d)                                 The Books of Borrower and each of its Subsidiaries in existence immediately prior to the Effective Date contain full, true and correct entries of all dealings and transactions in relation to its business and activities in conformity with Applicable Accounting Standards and all Requirements of Law.

8.                                      RIGHTS AND REMEDIES UPON AN EVENT OF DEFAULT

 

8.1.                            Rights and Remedies.  While an Event of Default occurs and continues, Lender may, without notice or demand:

 

(a)                                 declare all Obligations (including, for the avoidance of doubt, the Makewhole Amount or Prepayment Premium that is payable pursuant to Section 2.2(e) and Section 2.2(f), as applicable) immediately due and payable (but if an Event of Default described in Section 7.5 occurs all Obligations, including the Makewhole Amount and Prepayment Premium that is payable pursuant to Section 2.2(e) and Section 2.2(f), as applicable, are automatically and immediately due and payable without any action by Lender), whereupon all Obligations for principal, interest, premium or otherwise (including, for the avoidance of doubt, the Makewhole Amount and Prepayment Premium that is payable pursuant to Section 2.2(e) and Section 2.2(f), as applicable) shall become due and payable by Borrower without presentment, demand, protest or other notice of any kind, which are all expressly waived by the Credit Parties hereby;

 

(b)                                 stop advancing money or extending credit for Borrower’s benefit under this Agreement;

 

(c)                                  settle or adjust disputes and claims directly with Account Debtors for amounts on terms and in any order that Lender considers advisable, notify any Person owing Borrower money of Lender’s security interest in such funds, and verify the amount of the Collateral Accounts;

 

(d)                                 make any payments and do any acts it considers necessary or reasonable to protect the Collateral or Lender’s security interest in favor and for the benefit of Lender and the other Secured Parties in the Collateral.  Borrower shall assemble the Collateral if Lender requests and make it available as Lender designates.  Lender or its agents or representatives may enter premises where the Collateral is located, take and maintain possession of any part of the Collateral, and pay, purchase, contest, or compromise any Lien which appears to be

 

29



 

prior or superior to its security interest in favor and for the benefit of Lender and the other Secured Parties and pay all expenses incurred.  Borrower grants Lender a license to enter and occupy (and for its agents or representatives to enter and occupy) any of its premises, without charge, to exercise any of Lender’s rights or remedies;

 

(e)                                  apply to the Obligations (i) any balances and deposits of Borrower it holds, or (ii) any amount held by Lender owing to or for the credit or the account of Borrower;

 

(f)                                   ship, reclaim, recover, store, finish, maintain, repair, prepare for sale, advertise for sale, and sell the Collateral.  With respect to any and all Intellectual Property owned by any Credit Party and included in Collateral, each Credit Party hereby grants to Lender, for the benefit of all Secured Parties, as of the Closing Date, a non-exclusive, royalty-free license or other right to use, without charge, such Intellectual Property in advertising for sale and selling any Collateral and, in connection with Lender’s exercise of its rights under this Section 8.1, Borrower’s rights under all licenses and all franchise Contracts inure to the benefit of all Secured Parties.  Each Credit Party shall retain the right to control Lender’s use of its trade names and Trademarks and such trade names and Trademarks, together with the goodwill associated therewith, are and remain the exclusive property of the Credit Parties, and any and all use of the same by Lender shall inure to the benefit of the Credit Parties;

 

(g)                                  place a “hold” on any account maintained with Lender or deliver a notice of exclusive control, any entitlement order, or other directions or instructions pursuant to any Control Agreement or similar agreements providing control of any Collateral;

 

(h)                                 demand and receive possession of Borrower’s Books regarding Collateral; and

 

(i)                                     exercise all rights and remedies available to Lender under the Collateral Documents or any other Loan Documents or at law or equity, including all remedies provided under the Code (including disposal of the Collateral pursuant to the terms thereof).

 

Lender agrees that in connection with any foreclosure or other exercise of rights under this Agreement or any other Loan Document with respect to any Intellectual Property included in the Collateral, the rights of the licensees under any license of such Intellectual Property will not be terminated, limited or otherwise adversely affected so long as no default exists thereunder in a way that would permit the licensor to terminate such license (commonly termed a non-disturbance).

 

8.2.                            Power of Attorney.  Borrower hereby irrevocably appoints Lender and any Related Party thereof as its lawful attorney-in-fact, exercisable upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, to:  (a) endorse Borrower’s name on any checks or other forms of payment or security; (b) sign Borrower’s name on any invoice or bill of lading for any Account or drafts against Account Debtors; (c) settle and adjust disputes and claims about the Collateral Accounts directly with depository banks where the Collateral Accounts are maintained, for amounts and on terms Lender determines reasonable; (d) make, settle, and adjust all claims under Borrower’s products liability or general liability insurance policies maintained in the United States regarding Collateral; (e) pay, contest or settle any Lien, charge, encumbrance, security interest, and adverse claim in or to the Collateral, or any judgment based thereon, or otherwise take any action to terminate or discharge the same; and (f) transfer the Collateral into the name of Lender or a third party as the Code permits.  Borrower hereby appoints Lender and any Related Party thereof as its lawful attorney-in-fact to file or record any documents necessary to perfect or continue the perfection of Lender’s security interest in favor and for the benefit of Lender and the other Secured Parties in the Collateral regardless of whether an Event of Default has occurred until all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations) have been satisfied in full and Lender is not under any further obligation to make Credit Extensions hereunder.  The foregoing appointment of Lender and any Related Party thereof as Borrower’s attorney in fact, and all of Lender’s (or such Related Party’s) rights and powers, coupled with an interest, are irrevocable until all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations) have been fully repaid and performed and Lender’s obligation to provide Credit Extensions terminates.

 

8.3.                            Application of Payments and Proceeds Upon Default.  If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Lender shall apply any funds in its possession, whether from Borrower account balances, payments, proceeds realized as the result of any collection of Collateral Accounts or disposition of any other Collateral, or otherwise, to the Obligations in such order as Lender shall determine in its sole discretion.  Any surplus shall be paid to Borrower or other Persons legally entitled thereto; Borrower shall remain liable to Lender for any deficiency.  If

 

30



 

Lender directly or indirectly enters into a deferred payment or other credit transaction with any purchaser at any sale of Collateral, Lender shall have the option, exercisable at any time, of either reducing the Obligations by the principal amount of the purchase price or deferring the reduction of the Obligations until the actual receipt by Lender of cash therefor.

 

8.4.                            Lender’s Liability for Collateral.  So long as Lender complies with Requirements of Law regarding the safekeeping of the Collateral in the possession or under the control of Lender, Lender shall not be liable or responsible for: (a) the safekeeping of the Collateral; (b) any loss or damage to the Collateral; or (c) any act or default of any other Person.  In no event shall Lender have any liability for any diminution in the value of the Collateral for any reason.  Borrower bears all risk of loss, damage or destruction of the Collateral.

 

8.5.                            No Waiver; Remedies Cumulative.  Lender’s failure, at any time or times, to require strict performance by Borrower of any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall not waive, affect, or diminish any right of Lender thereafter to demand strict performance and compliance herewith or therewith.  No waiver hereunder shall be effective unless signed by the party granting the waiver and then is only effective for the specific instance and purpose for which it is given.  Lender’s rights and remedies under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents are cumulative.  Lender has all rights and remedies provided under the Code, by law, or in equity.  The exercise by Lender of one right or remedy is not an election and shall not preclude Lender from exercising any other remedy under this Agreement or other remedy available at law or in equity, and the waiver by Lender of any Event of Default is not a continuing waiver.  Lender’s delay in exercising any remedy is not a waiver, election, or acquiescence.

 

8.6.                            Demand Waiver; Makewhole Amount; Prepayment Premium.  Borrower waives demand, notice of default or dishonor, notice of payment and nonpayment, notice of any default, nonpayment at maturity, release, compromise, settlement, extension, or renewal of accounts, documents, instruments, chattel paper, and guarantees held by Lender on which Borrower is liable.  Borrower acknowledges and agrees that if the maturity of all Obligations shall be accelerated pursuant to Section 8.1(a) by reason of the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Makewhole Amount or Prepayment Premium, as applicable, that is payable pursuant to Section 2.2(e) or Section 2.2(f), as the case may be, shall become due and payable by Borrower upon such acceleration, whether such acceleration is automatic or is effected by Lender’s declaration thereof, as provided in Section 8.1(a), and Borrower shall pay the Makewhole Amount or Prepayment Premium, as applicable, that is payable pursuant to Section 2.2(e) or Section 2.2(f), as the case may be, as compensation to Lender for the loss of its investment opportunity and not as a penalty, and Borrower waives any right to object thereto in any voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy, insolvency or similar proceeding or otherwise.

 

9.                                      NOTICES

 

All notices, consents, requests, approvals, demands, or other communication by any party to this Agreement or any other Loan Document must be in writing and shall be deemed to have been validly served, given, or delivered: (a) upon the earlier of actual receipt and three (3) Business Days after deposit in the U.S. mail, first class, registered or certified mail return receipt requested, with proper postage prepaid; (b) upon transmission, when sent by electronic mail or facsimile transmission; (c) one (1) Business Day after deposit with a reputable overnight courier with all charges prepaid; or (d) when delivered, if hand-delivered by messenger, all of which shall be addressed to the party to be notified and sent to the address, facsimile number, or email address (if any) indicated below.  Any party to this Agreement may change its mailing or electronic mail address or facsimile number by giving all other parties hereto written notice thereof in accordance with the terms of this Section 9.

10.                               CHOICE OF LAW, VENUE, AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER

 

THE LOAN DOCUMENTS SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED AND INTERPRETED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, WITHOUT REGARD TO ANY PRINCIPLES OF CONFLICTS OF LAW THAT COULD REQUIRE THE APPLICATION OF THE LAW OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION.  Each party hereto submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts 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, and agrees that all claims in respect of any such action, litigation or proceeding may be heard and determined in such New York State court or, to the fullest extent permitted by

 

32



 

Requirements of Law, in such Federal court; provided, however, that nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to operate to preclude Lender from bringing suit or taking other legal action in any other jurisdiction to realize on the Collateral or any other security for the Obligations, or to enforce a judgment or other court order in favor of the Lender.  Each Credit Party expressly submits and consents in advance to such jurisdiction in any action or suit commenced in any such court, and each Credit Party hereby waives any objection that it may have based upon lack of personal jurisdiction, improper venue, or forum non conveniens and hereby consents to the granting of such legal or equitable relief as is deemed appropriate by such court.  Each Credit Party hereby waives personal service of the summons, complaints, and other process issued in such action or suit and agrees that service of such summons, complaints, and other process may be made by registered or certified mail addressed to such party at the address set forth in (or otherwise provided in accordance with the terms of) Section 9 of this Agreement and that service so made shall be deemed completed upon the earlier to occur of such party’s actual receipt thereof or three (3) days after deposit in the U.S. mails, proper postage prepaid.

 

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, EACH PARTY HERETO WAIVES ITS RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OF ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR BASED UPON THIS AGREEMENT, THE LOAN DOCUMENTS OR ANY CONTEMPLATED TRANSACTION, INCLUDING CONTRACT, TORT, BREACH OF DUTY AND ALL OTHER CLAIMS.  THIS WAIVER IS A MATERIAL INDUCEMENT FOR ALL PARTIES HERETO TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT.  EACH PARTY HERETO HAS REVIEWED THIS WAIVER WITH ITS COUNSEL.

 

11.                               GENERAL PROVISIONS

 

11.1.                     Successors and Assigns.

 

(a)                                 This Agreement binds and is for the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns.

 

(b)                                 No Credit Party may transfer, pledge or assign this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any rights or obligations hereunder or thereunder without the prior written consent of Lender.  Lender may sell, transfer, assign or pledge this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any of its rights or obligations hereunder or thereunder, including with respect the Term Loan, to any third party without Borrower’s prior written consent, including to grant a participation in all or any part of, or any interest in, Lender’s obligations, rights or benefits under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, including with respect to the Term Loan (any such sale, transfer, assignment, pledge or grant of a participation, a “Lender Transfer”); provided, however, that Lender may not make a Lender Transfer to a Competitor of Borrower without Borrower’s prior written consent.

 

(c)                                  In the case of a Lender Transfer in the form of a participation granted by Lender to any third party, (i) Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of its obligations hereunder, (iii) Borrower shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement and (iv) any agreement or instrument pursuant to which such Lender sells such participation shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right to enforce this Agreement and to approve any amendment, modification, or other modification hereto, in each case subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.  Borrower agrees that each participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.5 and 2.6 (subject to the requirements and limitations therein, including the requirements under Section 2.6(d) (it being understood that the documentation required under Section 2.6(d) shall be delivered to Lender)) to the same extent as if it were a Person that had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to clause (b) above; provided that, with respect to any participation, such participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Sections 2.5 or 2.6 than Lender (the party that participated the interest) would have been entitled to receive, except to the extent of any entitlement to receive a greater payment resulting from a Change in Law that occurs after such participant acquired the applicable participation.

 

(d)                                 Lender shall record any Lender Transfer in the Register.  Lender shall provide Borrower with written notice of a Lender Transfer delivered no later than five (5) Business Days prior to the date on which such Lender Transfer is consummated.  For the avoidance of doubt, if Lender sells a participation it shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of Borrower, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each participant and principal amounts (and stated interest) of each participant’s interest in the Term Loan

 

33



 

or other obligations under the Loan Documents (the “Participant Register”); provided, however, that Lender shall have no obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any participant or any information relating to a participant’s interest in any commitments, loans or its other obligations under any Loan Document) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such commitment, loan, letter of credit or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations.  The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and 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.

 

(e)                                  Any attempted transfer, pledge or assignment of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any rights or obligations hereunder or thereunder in violation of this Section 11.1 shall be null and void.

 

11.2.                     Indemnification.

 

(a)                                 Borrower agrees to indemnify and hold harmless each of Lender and its Affiliates (and its or their respective successors and assigns) and each manager, member, partner, controlling Person, director, officer, employee, agent or sub-agent, advisor and affiliate thereof (each such Person, an “Indemnified Person”) from and against any and all Indemnified Liabilities; provided, however, that (i) Borrower shall have no obligation to any Indemnified Person hereunder with respect to any Indemnified Liabilities to the extent such Indemnified Liabilities arise from the bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct of that Indemnified Person (or its Affiliates or controlling Persons or their respective directors, officers, managers, partners, members, agents, sub-agents or advisors), in each case, as determined by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, (ii) Borrower shall have no obligation to any Indemnified Person hereunder with respect to any Indemnified Liabilities to the extent such Indemnified Liabilities arise from a material breach of any obligation of such Indemnified Person hereunder, and (iii) Borrower shall have no obligation to any Indemnified Person hereunder with respect to any Indemnified Liabilities to the extent such Indemnified Liabilities arise from any claim by one Indemnified Person against another Indemnified Person that does not relate to any act or omission of any Credit Party, and (iv) no Credit Party shall be liable for any settlement of any claim or proceeding effected by any Indemnified Person without the prior written consent of such Credit Party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), but if settled with such consent or if there shall be a final judgment against an Indemnified Person, each of the Credit Parties shall, jointly and severally, indemnify and hold harmless such Indemnified Person from and against any loss or liability by reason of such settlement or judgment in the manner set forth in this Agreement.  This Section 11.2(a) shall not apply with respect to Taxes other than any Taxes that represent liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, claims, costs, expenses and disbursements arising from any non-Tax claim.

 

(b)                                 To the extent permitted by Requirements of Law, no party to this Agreement shall assert, and each party to this Agreement hereby waives, any claim against any other party hereto (and its or their successors and assigns), and each manager, member, partner, controlling Person, director, officer, employee, agent or sub-agent, advisor and affiliate thereof, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) (whether or not the claim therefor is based on contract, tort or duty imposed by any applicable legal requirement) arising out of, in connection with, arising out of, as a result of, or in any way related to, this Agreement or any Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby or referred to herein or therein, the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, the Term Loan or the use of the proceeds thereof or any act or omission or event occurring in connection therewith, and each party to this Agreement hereby waives, releases and agrees not to sue upon any such claim or any such damages, whether or not accrued and whether or not known or suspected to exist in its favor.

 

11.3.                     Severability of Provisions.  In case any provision in or obligation hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions or obligations, or of such provision or obligation in any other jurisdiction, shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby.

 

11.4.                     Correction of Loan Documents.  Lender may correct patent errors and fill in any blanks in the Loan Documents consistent with the agreement of the parties hereto so long as Lender provides the Credit Parties with written notice of such correction and allows the Credit Parties at least ten (10) days to object to such correction

 

34



 

in writing delivered to Lender.  In the event of such objection, such correction shall not be made except by an amendment to this Agreement in accordance with Section 11.5.

 

11.5.                     Amendments in Writing; Integration.

 

(a)                                 No amendment or modification of any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or waiver, discharge or termination of any obligation hereunder or thereunder, no approval or consent hereunder or thereunder (including any consent to any departure by Borrower or any other Credit Party herefrom or therefrom), shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by Borrower (on its own behalf and on behalf of each other Credit Party) and Lender.  Any such waiver, approval or consent granted shall be limited to the specific circumstance expressly described in it, and shall not apply to any subsequent or other circumstance, whether similar or dissimilar, or give rise to, or evidence, any obligation or commitment to grant any further waiver, approval or consent.

 

(b)                                 This Agreement and the Loan Documents represent the entire agreement about this subject matter and supersede prior negotiations or agreements.  All prior agreements, understandings, representations, warranties, and negotiations among the parties hereto about the subject matter of this Agreement and the Loan Documents merge into this Agreement and the Loan Documents.

 

11.6.                     Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties on separate counterparts, each of which, when executed and delivered, is an original, and all taken together, constitute one Agreement.

 

11.7.                     Survival.  All covenants, representations and warranties made in this Agreement continue in full force until this Agreement has terminated pursuant to its terms and all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations and any other obligations which, by their terms, are to survive the termination of this Agreement) have been paid in full and satisfied.  The obligation of Borrower or any other the Credit Parties in Section 11.2 to indemnify Indemnified Persons shall survive until the statute of limitations with respect to such claim or cause of action shall have run.

 

11.8.                     Confidentiality.  Any information regarding the Credit Parties and their Subsidiaries and their businesses provided to Lender by or on behalf of any Credit Party pursuant to the Loan Documents shall be deemed “Confidential Information”; provided, however, that Confidential Information does not include information that is either: (i) in the public domain or in the possession of Lender or any of its Affiliates or when disclosed to Lender or any of its Affiliates, or becomes part of the public domain after disclosure to Lender or any of its Affiliates, in each case, other than as a result of a breach by Lender or any of its Affiliates of the obligations under this Section 11.8; or (ii) disclosed to Lender or any of its Affiliates by a third party if Lender or any of its Affiliates do not know that the third party is prohibited from disclosing the information.  Lender shall not disclose any Confidential Information to a third party or use Confidential Information for any purpose other than the exercise of its rights and the performance of its duties or obligations under the Loan Documents.  The foregoing in this Section 11.8 notwithstanding, Lender may disclose Confidential Information: (a) to any of Lender’s Subsidiaries or Affiliates; (b) to prospective transferees or purchasers of any interest in the Credit Extensions (including, for the avoidance of doubt, in connection with any proposed Lender Transfer); (c) as required by law, regulation, subpoena, or other order, provided, that (x) prior to any disclosure under this clause (c), Lender agrees to endeavor to provide Borrower with prior written notice thereof and with respect to any law, regulation, subpoena or other order, to the extent that Lender is permitted to provide such prior notice to Borrower pursuant to the terms hereof, and (y) any disclosure under this clause (c) shall be limited solely to that portion of the Confidential Information as may be specifically compelled by such law, regulation, subpoena or other order; (d) to the extent requested by regulators having jurisdiction over Lender or as otherwise required in connection with Lender’s examination or audit by such regulators; (e) as Lender considers reasonably necessary in exercising remedies under the Loan Documents; (f) to third-party service providers of Lender; and (g) to any of Lender’s Related Parties; provided, however, that the third parties to which Confidential Information is disclosed pursuant to clauses (a), (b), (f) and (g) are bound by obligations of confidentiality and non-use that are no less restrictive than those contained herein.

 

The provisions of this Section 11.8 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

 

11.9.                     Attorneys’ Fees, Costs and Expenses.  In any action or proceeding between any Credit Party and Lender arising out of or relating to the Loan Documents, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its

5



 

Obligations of Borrower existing on the date hereof or hereinafter incurred or created (the “Guaranteed Obligations”).  This Guaranty by each Guarantor hereunder constitutes a guaranty of payment and not of collection.  Each Guarantor hereby acknowledges and agrees that the Guaranteed Obligations, at any time and from time to time, may exceed the Maximum Guaranteed Amount of such Guarantor and may exceed the aggregate of the Maximum Guaranteed Amounts of all Guarantors, in each case without discharging, limiting or otherwise affecting the obligations of any Guarantor hereunder or the rights, powers and remedies of any Secured Party hereunder or under any other Loan Document.

 

Section 2.2.                                 Limitation of Guaranty.  Any term or provision of this Guaranty or any other Loan Document to the contrary notwithstanding, the maximum aggregate amount for which any Guarantor shall be liable hereunder (the “Maximum Guaranteed Amount”) shall not exceed the maximum amount for which such Guarantor can be liable without rendering this Guaranty or any other Loan Document, as it relates to such Guarantor, subject to avoidance under applicable Requirements of Law relating to fraudulent conveyance or fraudulent transfer (including the Uniform Fraudulent Conveyance Act, the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act and Section 548 of title 11 of the United States Code or any applicable provisions of comparable Requirements of Law) (collectively, “Fraudulent Transfer Laws”).  Any analysis of the provisions of this Guaranty for purposes of Fraudulent Transfer Laws shall take into account the right of contribution established in Section 2.7 and, for purposes of such analysis, give effect to any discharge of intercompany debt as a result of any payment made under the Guaranty.

 

Section 2.3.                                 Authorization; Other Agreements.  Lender on behalf of itself and the other Secured Parties is hereby authorized, without notice, to or demand upon any Guarantor and without discharging or otherwise affecting the obligations of any Guarantor hereunder and without incurring any liability hereunder, from time to time, to do each of the following but subject in all cases to the terms and conditions of the other Loan Documents:

 

(a)                                 subject to compliance with Section 11.5 of the Loan Agreement and Section 8.5 hereof, (i) modify, amend, supplement or otherwise change, (ii) accelerate or otherwise change the time of payment or (iii) waive or otherwise consent to noncompliance with, any Guaranteed Obligation or any Loan Document;

 

(b)                                 apply to the Guaranteed Obligations any sums by whomever paid or however realized to any Guaranteed Obligation in such order as provided in the Loan Documents;

 

(c)                                  refund at any time any payment received by any Secured Party in respect of any Guaranteed Obligation;

 

(d)                                 (i) subject to compliance with Section 6.1 hereof, sell, exchange, enforce, waive, substitute, liquidate, terminate, release, abandon, fail to perfect, subordinate, accept, substitute, surrender, exchange, affect, impair or otherwise alter or release any Collateral for any Guaranteed Obligation or any other guaranty therefor in any manner, (ii) receive, take and hold additional Collateral to secure any Guaranteed Obligation, (iii) add, release or substitute any one or more other Guarantors, makers or endorsers of any Guaranteed Obligation or any part thereof

 

6



 

and (iv) otherwise deal in any manner with Borrower or any other Guarantor, maker or endorser of any Guaranteed Obligation or any part thereof; and

 

(e)                                  settle, release, compromise, collect or otherwise liquidate the Guaranteed Obligations.

 

Section 2.4.                                 Guaranty Absolute and Unconditional.  Each Guarantor hereby waives and agrees not to assert any defense (other than the indefeasible payment in full of the Guaranteed Obligations as specified in clause (f) below), whether arising in connection with or in respect of any of the following clauses (a) through (f) or otherwise, and hereby agrees that its obligations under this Guaranty are irrevocable, absolute and unconditional and shall not be discharged as a result of or otherwise affected by any of the following clauses (a) through (f) (which may not be pleaded and evidence of which may not be introduced in any proceeding with respect to this Guaranty, in each case except as otherwise agreed in writing by Lender):

 

(a)                                 the invalidity or unenforceability of any obligation of Borrower or any other Guarantor under any Loan Document or any other agreement or instrument relating thereto (including any amendment, consent or waiver thereto), or any security for, or other guaranty of, any Guaranteed Obligation or any part thereof, or the lack of perfection or continuing perfection or failure of priority of any security for the Guaranteed Obligations or any part thereof;

 

(b)                                 the absence of (i) any attempt to collect any Guaranteed Obligation or any part thereof from Borrower or any other Guarantor or other action to enforce the same or (ii) any action to enforce any Loan Document or any Lien thereunder;

 

(c)                                  the failure by any Person to take any steps to perfect and maintain any Lien on, or to preserve any rights with respect to, any Collateral;

 

(d)                                 any workout, insolvency, bankruptcy proceeding, reorganization, arrangement, liquidation or dissolution by or against Borrower, any other Guarantor or any of Borrower’s other Subsidiaries or any procedure, agreement, order, stipulation, election, action or omission thereunder, including any discharge or disallowance of, or bar or stay against collecting, any Guaranteed Obligation (or any interest thereon) in or as a result of any such proceeding;

 

(e)                                  any foreclosure, whether or not through judicial sale, and any other sale or other disposition of any Collateral or any election following the occurrence of an Event of Default and during the continuance thereof by Lender on behalf of itself and any other Secured Party to proceed separately against any Collateral in accordance with Lender’s and any other Secured Party’s rights under any applicable Requirements of Law; or

 

7



 

(f)                                   any other defense, setoff, counterclaim or any other circumstance that might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge of Borrower, any other Guarantor or any other Subsidiary of Borrower, in each case other than the indefeasible payment in full of the Guaranteed Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations).

 

Section 2.5.                                 Waivers.  To the fullest extent permitted by Requirements of Law, each Guarantor hereby unconditionally and irrevocably waives and agrees not to assert any claim, defense, setoff or counterclaim based on diligence, promptness, presentment, requirements for any demand or notice hereunder, including any of the following:  (a) any demand for payment or performance and protest and notice of protest; (b) any notice of acceptance; (c) any presentment, demand, protest or further notice or other requirements of any kind with respect to any Guaranteed Obligation (including any accrued but unpaid interest thereon) becoming immediately due and payable; and (d) any other notice in respect of any Guaranteed Obligation or any part thereof, and any defense arising by reason of any disability or other defense of Borrower or any other Guarantor.  Until the indefeasible payment in full of the Guaranteed Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations), each Guarantor further unconditionally and irrevocably agrees not to (x) enforce or otherwise exercise any right of subrogation or any right of reimbursement or contribution or similar right against Borrower or any other Guarantor by reason of any Loan Document or any payment made thereunder or (y) assert any claim, defense, setoff or counterclaim it may have against any other Credit Party or set off any of its obligations to such other Credit Party against obligations of such Credit Party to such Guarantor.  No obligation of any Guarantor hereunder shall be discharged other than by complete performance.

 

Section 2.6.                                 Reliance.  Each Guarantor hereby assumes responsibility for keeping itself informed of the financial condition of Borrower, each other Guarantor and any other guarantor, maker or endorser of any Guaranteed Obligation or any part thereof, and of all other circumstances bearing upon the risk of nonpayment of any Guaranteed Obligation or any part thereof that reasonable and diligent inquiry would reveal, and each Guarantor hereby agrees that neither Lender nor any other Secured Party shall have any duty to advise any Guarantor of information known to it regarding such condition or any such circumstances.  In the event Lender, or any other Secured Party, in its sole discretion, undertakes at any time or from time to time to provide any such information to any Guarantor, such Person shall be under no obligation to (a) undertake any investigation not a part of its regular business routine, (b) disclose any information that Lender or any other Secured Party, pursuant to accepted or reasonable commercial finance or banking practices, wishes to maintain confidential or (c) make any future disclosures of such information or any other information to any Guarantor.

 

Section 2.7.                                 Contribution.  To the extent that any Guarantor shall be required hereunder to pay any portion of any Guaranteed Obligation exceeding the greater of (a) the amount of the value actually received by such Guarantor and its Subsidiaries from the Term Loan and other Obligations and (b) the amount such Guarantor would otherwise have paid if such Guarantor had paid the aggregate amount of the Guaranteed Obligations (excluding the amount thereof repaid by Borrower) in the same proportion as such Guarantor’s net worth on the date enforcement is sought hereunder bears to the aggregate net worth of all Guarantors on such date, then such Guarantor shall be reimbursed by such other Guarantors for the amount of such excess, pro rata, based on the respective net worth of such other Guarantors on such date.

Section 3.2.                                 Grant of Security Interest in Collateral.  Without limiting any other security interest granted to Lender, in favor of and for the benefit of itself and the other Secured Parties, each Grantor, as collateral security for the prompt and complete payment and performance when due (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) of the Obligations of such Grantor (the “Secured Obligations”), hereby pledges, hypothecates and grants to Lender, in favor and for the benefit of itself and the other Secured Parties, to secure the payment and performance in full of all of the Obligations for the benefit of Lender and the other Secured Parties, a first priority Lien (subject only to Permitted Liens) on and continuing security interest in, all of its right, title and interest in, to and under the Collateral of such Grantor, wherever located in the United States (or, solely in the case of Pledged Stock of a Foreign Subsidiary (other than an Excluded Subsidiary), wherever located), whether now owned or

hereafter acquired or arising; provided, however, notwithstanding the foregoing, no Lien or security interest is hereby granted on, and “Collateral” shall not include, any Excluded Property; provided, further, that if and when any property or asset shall cease to be Excluded Property, a first priority Lien (subject only to Permitted Liens) on and security interest in such property or asset shall be deemed granted therein and, therefore, “Collateral” shall then include any such property or asset.

 

ARTICLE IV

 

REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

 

To induce Lender to enter into the Loan Documents, each Grantor, jointly and severally with each other Grantor, represents and warrants each of the following to Lender and the other Secured Parties:

 

Section 4.1.                                 Title; No Other Liens.  Except for the Lien granted to Lender for the benefit of itself and the other Secured Parties pursuant to this Agreement and any other Permitted Liens under any Loan Document (including Section 4.2 hereof), such Grantor owns or otherwise has the rights it purports to have in each item of the Collateral, free and clear of any and all Liens or claims of others.  Such Grantor (a) is the record and beneficial owner of the Collateral pledged by it hereunder constituting instruments or certificates and (b) except for Permitted Domestic Subsidiary Distribution Restrictions, has rights in or the power to transfer each other item of Collateral in which a Lien is granted by it hereunder, free and clear of any other Lien other than any Permitted Liens.

 

Section 4.2.                                 Perfection and Priority.  Other than in respect of money and other Collateral subject to Section 9-311(a)(1) of the Code, the security interest granted pursuant to this Agreement constitutes a valid and continuing first priority perfected security interest (subject, in the case of priority only, to Permitted Liens that are expressly permitted (if at all) by the terms of the Loan Agreement or this Agreement to have superior priority to the Lien and security interest in favor of Lender) in favor of Lender in all Collateral, subject, for the following Collateral, to the occurrence of the following:  (a) in the case of all Collateral in which a security interest may be perfected by filing a financing statement under the Code, the completion of the filings and other actions specified on Schedule 2 of the Security Disclosure Letter (which, in the case of all filings and other documents referred to on such schedule, have been duly authorized by the applicable Guarantor); (b) with respect to any deposit account over which a Control Agreement is required pursuant to Section 5.5 of the Loan Agreement, the execution of Control Agreements; (c) in the case of all United States Trademarks, Patents and Copyrights for which Code filings are insufficient to effectuate perfection, all appropriate filings having been made with the Applicable IP Office, as applicable; (d) in the case of all Pledged Certificated Stock, the delivery thereof to Lender of such Pledged Certificated Stock consisting of instruments and certificates, in each case, properly endorsed for transfer to Lender or in blank; (e) in the case of all Pledged Uncertificated Stock, the delivery to Lender of an executed uncertificated stock control agreement among the issuer, the registered owner and Lender in the form attached as Annex 4 hereto; and (f) in the case of all other instruments that are not Pledged Stock, if any, the delivery thereof to Lender of such instruments.  Such Lien on and security interest in Pledged Stock shall be prior to all other Liens on such Collateral, subject to Permitted Liens having

 

10



 

priority over Lender’s Lien by operation of law or as and to the extent expressly permitted (if at all) by any Loan Document.  Except to the extent expressly not required pursuant to the terms of the Loan Agreement or this Agreement, all actions by each Grantor necessary or desirable to protect and perfect the first priority Lien on and security interest in the Collateral granted hereunder have been duly taken.

 

Section 4.3.                                 Pledged Stock.

 

(a)                                 The Pledged Stock issued by any Subsidiary of any Grantor pledged by such Grantor hereunder (i) consist of the number and types of Equity Interests listed on Schedule 1 of the Security Disclosure Letter and constitutes that percentage of the issued and outstanding equity of all classes of each issuer thereof as set forth on Schedule 1 of the Security Disclosure Letter, (ii) has been duly authorized, validly issued and is fully paid and nonassessable (other than Pledged Stock in limited liability companies and partnerships), and (ii) constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of the obligor with respect thereto, enforceable in accordance with its terms.  As of the date any Joinder Agreement or Pledge Amendment is delivered pursuant to Section 8.6, the Pledged Stock pledged by each applicable Grantor thereunder (x) is listed on the applicable schedule attached to such Joinder Agreement or Pledge Amendment, as applicable, and constitutes that percentage of the issued and outstanding equity of all classes of each issuer thereof as set forth on such schedule, (y) has been duly authorized, validly issued and is fully paid and non-assessable (other than Pledged Stock in limited liability companies and partnerships) and (z) constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of the obligor with respect thereto, enforceable in accordance with its terms.

 

(b)                                 (i) All Pledged Certificated Stock has been delivered to Lender in accordance with Section 5.2(a), and (ii) with respect to Pledged Uncertificated Stock, uncertificated stock control agreements in the form attached as Annex 4 hereto have been delivered to Lender in accordance with Section 5.2(a).

 

(c)                                  Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Lender for the benefit of itself and the other Secured Parties shall be entitled to exercise all of the rights of the Grantor granting the security interest in any Pledged Stock, and a transferee or assignee of such Pledged Stock shall become a holder of such Pledged Stock to the same extent as such Grantor and, upon the transfer of the entire interest of such Grantor, such Grantor shall, by operation of law, cease to be a holder of such Pledged Stock.

 

ARTICLE V

 

COVENANTS

 

Each Grantor agrees with Lender to the following, until the indefeasible payment in full of the Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations) and unless Lender on behalf of itself and the other Secured Parties otherwise consents in writing:

Section 5.1.                                 Maintenance of Perfected Security Interest; Further Documentation and Consents.

 

(a)                                 Subject to the occurrence of the actions described in Section 4.2, which each Grantor shall promptly undertake, and except to the extent perfection is either (i) mutually agreed between Borrower and Lender not to be required under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents or (ii) mutually agreed between Borrower and Lender to be effected by filings of financing statements or amendments thereto to be made by Lender or its Related Party pursuant to Section 7.2, such Grantor shall maintain the security interest created by this Agreement as a perfected security interest having at least the priority described in Section 4.2 and shall warrant and defend the Collateral covered by such security interest and such priority against the claims and demands of all Persons (other than Secured Parties).

 

(b)                                 Such Grantor shall furnish to Lender at any time and from time to time statements and schedules further identifying and describing the Collateral and such other documents in connection with the Collateral as Lender may reasonably request in writing, all in reasonable detail and in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Lender.

 

(c)                                  At any time and from time to time, upon the written request of Lender, such Grantor shall, for the purpose of obtaining or preserving the full benefits of this Agreement and the other Collateral Documents and of the rights and powers herein and therein granted, (i) promptly and duly execute and deliver, and have recorded, such further documents, including an authorization to file (or, as applicable, the filing) of any financing statement or amendment under the Code (or other filings under similar Requirements of Law) in effect in any jurisdiction with respect to the security interest created hereby and (ii) take such further action as Lender may reasonably request in writing that is consistent with the requirements hereof and of the other Loan Documents, including executing and delivering any Control Agreements required by Section 5.5 of the Loan Agreement with respect to the Collateral Accounts.

 

Section 5.2.                                 Pledged Stock.

 

(a)                                 Delivery of Pledged Stock.  Such Grantor shall, promptly but in any event within thirty (30) days (or such longer period as Lender may agree in its sole discretion) after acquiring any Pledged Stock not owned on the Closing Date, (i) deliver to Lender, in suitable form for transfer and in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Lender, all such Pledged Stock that is Pledged Certificated Stock, and (ii)  cause the issuer of any such Pledged Stock that is Pledged Uncertificated Stock to execute an uncertificated stock control agreement in the form attached hereto as Annex 4, pursuant to which, inter alia, such issuer agrees to comply with Lender’s instructions with respect to such Pledged Uncertificated Stock without further consent by such Grantor, and, for the avoidance of doubt, if any such Pledged Uncertificated Stock becomes certificated, promptly (but in any event within thirty (30) days thereof) deliver to Lender, in suitable form for transfer and in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Lender, all such certificates, instruments or other similar documents (as defined in the Code).

 

(b)                                 Event of Default.  During the continuance of any Event of Default and in connection with the exercise of rights or remedies hereunder or under any other Loan Document, Lender shall have the right, at any time in its discretion and without prior notice to Grantor, to

 

12



 

(i) transfer to or to register in its name or in the name of its nominees any Pledged Stock and (ii) exchange any certificate or instrument representing or evidencing any Pledged Stock for certificates or instruments of smaller or larger denominations; provided, that Lender shall give written notice thereof to Grantor promptly following the occurrence (and, in any event, within two (2) Business Days of such occurrence) of any such transfer, registration or exchange.

 

(c)                                  Cash Distributions with respect to Pledged Stock.  Except as provided in Article VI and subject to any limitations set forth in the Loan Agreement, such Grantor shall be entitled to receive all cash distributions paid in respect of the Pledged Stock.

 

(d)                                 Voting Rights.  Except as provided in Article VI, such Grantor shall be entitled to exercise all voting, consent and corporate, partnership, limited liability company and similar rights with respect to the Pledged Stock; provided, however, that no vote shall be cast, consent, waiver or ratification given or right exercised (or failed to be exercised) or other action taken (or failed to be taken) by such Grantor in any manner that would reasonably be expected to (i) violate or be inconsistent with any of the terms of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or (ii) have the effect of materially impairing such Collateral or the position or interests of the Secured Parties.

 

Section 5.3.                                 Intellectual Property.  Not later than the next Reporting Date, such Grantor shall execute and deliver to Lender in form and substance reasonably acceptable to Lender and suitable for filing in the Applicable IP Office the short-form intellectual property security agreements in the form attached hereto as Annex 3 for all Collateral consisting of any newly-acquired Copyrights, Trademarks or Patents (as applicable) of such Grantor registered in the Applicable IP Office.

 

ARTICLE VI

 

REMEDIAL PROVISIONS

 

Section 6.1.                                 Code and Other Remedies.

 

(a)                                 Code Remedies.  During the continuance of an Event of Default, Lender on behalf of itself and the other Secured Parties, may exercise, in addition to all other rights and remedies granted to it in this Agreement, any IP Agreement, any other Loan Document or in any other instrument or agreement securing, evidencing or relating to any Secured Obligation, all rights, powers and remedies of a secured party under the Code or any other Requirements of Law or in equity.

 

(b)                                 Disposition of Collateral.  During the continuance of an Event of Default, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Lender may (personally or through its agents or attorneys), without demand of performance or other demand, presentment, protest, advertisement or notice of any kind (except any notice required by Requirements of Law referred to below) to or upon any Grantor or any other Person (all and each of which demands, defenses, advertisements and notices are hereby waived):  (i) enter upon the premises where any Collateral is located, without any obligation to pay rent, through self-help, without judicial process, without first obtaining a final judgment or giving Grantor or any other Person notice or opportunity for a

 

13



 

hearing on Lender’s claim or action; (ii) collect, receive, appropriate and realize upon any Collateral; (iii) store, process, repair or recondition the Collateral or otherwise prepare any Collateral for disposition in any manner to the extent Lender deems appropriate; and (iv) sell, assign, license out, convey, transfer, grant option or options to purchase or license and deliver any Collateral (or enter into contractual obligations to do any of the foregoing), in one or more parcels at public or private sale or sales, at any exchange, broker’s board or office of Lender or any other Secured Party or elsewhere upon such terms and conditions as it may deem advisable and at such prices as it may deem best, for cash or on credit or for future delivery without assumption of any credit risk.  Lender, on behalf of itself and the other Secured Parties, shall have the right, upon any such public sale or sales and, to the extent permitted by the Code and other Requirements of Law, upon any such private sale or sales, to purchase or license the whole or any part of the Collateral so sold or licensed, free of any right or equity of redemption of any Grantor, which right or equity is hereby waived and released.  Lender, as representative of all Secured Parties, shall be entitled, for the purpose of bidding and making settlement or payment of the purchase price for all or any portion of the Collateral sold at any such sale made in accordance with the Code, to use and apply any of the Secured Obligations as a credit on account of the purchase price for any Collateral payable by Lender on behalf of itself and the other Secured Parties, at such sale.  If Lender sells any of the Collateral upon credit, Grantor will be credited only with payments actually made by purchaser and received by Lender and applied to indebtedness of the purchaser.  In the event the purchaser fails to pay for the Collateral, Lender may resell the Collateral and Grantor shall be credited with proceeds of the sale.  Lender shall have no obligation to marshal any of the Collateral.

 

(c)                                  Management of the Collateral.  Each Grantor further agrees, that, during the continuance of any Event of Default, (i) at Lender’s request, it shall assemble the Collateral and make it available to Lender at places that Lender shall reasonably select, whether at such Grantor’s premises or elsewhere, (ii) without limiting the foregoing, Lender also has the right to require that such Grantor store and keep any Collateral pending further action by Lender and, while any such Collateral is so stored or kept, provide such guards and maintenance services as shall be necessary to protect the same and to preserve and maintain such Collateral in good condition, normal wear and tear excepted, (iii) until Lender is able to sell, assign, license out, convey or transfer any Collateral, Lender shall have the right to hold or use such Collateral to the extent that it deems appropriate for the purpose of preserving the Collateral or its value or for any other purpose deemed appropriate by Lender and (iv) Lender may, if it so elects, seek the appointment of a receiver or keeper to take possession of any Collateral and to enforce any of Lender’s remedies, with respect to such appointment without prior notice or hearing as to such appointment.  Lender shall not have any obligation to any Grantor to maintain or preserve the rights of any Grantor as against other Persons with respect to any Collateral while such Collateral is in the possession of Lender.

 

(d)                                 Application of Proceeds.  Lender shall apply the cash proceeds received by it in respect of any sale of, any collection from, or other realization upon all or any part of the Collateral, after deducting all reasonable costs and expenses of every kind incurred in connection therewith or incidental to the care or safekeeping of any Collateral or in any way relating to the Collateral or the rights of Lender and the other Secured Parties, including reasonable and documented out-of-pocket attorneys’ fees and disbursements, to the payment in whole or in part of the Secured Obligations, as set forth in the Loan Agreement, and only after such application

 

14



 

and after the payment by Lender of any other amount required by any Requirements of Law, need Lender account for the surplus, if any, to any Grantor.

 

(e)                                  Direct Obligation.  Neither Lender nor any other Secured Party shall be required to make any demand upon, or pursue or exhaust any right or remedy against, any Grantor or any other Person with respect to the payment of the Obligations or to pursue or exhaust any right or remedy with respect to any Collateral therefor or any direct or indirect guaranty thereof.  All of the rights and remedies of Lender and any other Secured Party shall be cumulative, may be exercised individually or concurrently and not exclusive of any other rights or remedies provided by any Requirements of Law.  To the extent it may lawfully do so, each Grantor absolutely and irrevocably waives and relinquishes the benefit and advantage of, and covenants not to assert against Lender or any other Secured Party, any valuation, stay, appraisement, extension, redemption or similar laws and any and all rights or defenses it may have as a surety, now or hereafter existing, arising out of the exercise by any of them of any rights or remedies hereunder.  If any notice of a proposed sale or other disposition of any Collateral shall be required by Requirements of Law, such notice shall be deemed reasonable and proper if given at least ten (10) days before such sale or other disposition.

 

(f)                                   Commercially Reasonable.  To the extent that applicable Requirements of Law impose duties on Lender or any other Secured Party to exercise remedies in a commercially reasonable manner, each Grantor acknowledges and agrees that it is not commercially unreasonable for Lender to do any of the following:

 

(i)                                     fail to incur significant costs, expenses or other liabilities reasonably deemed as such by Lender to prepare any Collateral for disposition or otherwise to complete raw material or work in process into finished goods or other finished products for disposition;

 

(ii)                                  fail to obtain permits, licenses or other consents for access to any Collateral to sell or license or for the collection or sale or licensing of any Collateral, or, if not required by other Requirements of Law, fail to obtain permits, licenses or other consents for the collection or disposition of any Collateral;

 

(iii)                               fail to exercise remedies against account debtors or other Persons obligated on any Collateral or to remove Liens on any Collateral or to remove any adverse claims against any Collateral;

 

(iv)                              advertise dispositions of any Collateral through publications or media of general circulation, whether or not such Collateral is of a specialized nature, or to contact other Persons, whether or not in the same business as any Grantor, for expressions of interest in acquiring any such Collateral;

 

(v)                                 exercise collection remedies against account debtors and other Persons obligated on any Collateral, directly or through the use of collection agencies or other collection specialists, hire one or more professional auctioneers to assist in the disposition of any Collateral, whether or not such Collateral is of a specialized nature, or, to the extent deemed appropriate by Lender, obtain the services of other brokers, investment bankers, consultants and

 

15



 

other professionals to assist Lender in the collection or disposition of any Collateral, or utilize Internet sites that provide for the auction of assets of the types included in the Collateral or that have the reasonable capacity of doing so, or that match buyers and sellers of assets to dispose of any Collateral;

 

(vi)                              dispose of assets in wholesale rather than retail markets;

 

(vii)                           disclaim warranties, such as title, merchantability, possession, non-infringement or quiet enjoyment; or

 

(viii)                        purchase insurance or credit enhancements to insure Lender and any other Secured Party against risks of loss, collection or disposition of any Collateral or to provide to Lender a guaranteed return from the collection or disposition of any Collateral.

 

Each Grantor acknowledges that the purpose of this Section 6.1 is to provide a non-exhaustive list of actions or omissions that are commercially reasonable when exercising remedies against any Collateral and that other actions or omissions by Lender or any other Secured Party shall not be deemed commercially unreasonable solely on account of not being indicated in this Section 6.1.  Without limitation upon the foregoing, nothing contained in this Section 6.1 shall be construed to grant any rights to any Grantor or to impose any duties on Lender or any other Secured Party that would not have been granted or imposed by this Agreement or by applicable Requirements of Law in the absence of this Section 6.1.

 

Section 6.2.                                 Accounts and Payments in Respect of General Intangibles.

 

(a)                                 In addition to, and not in substitution for, any similar requirement in the Loan Agreement, if required by Lender at any time during the continuance of an Event of Default, any payment of accounts or payment in respect of general intangibles relating to the Collateral, when collected by any Grantor, shall be promptly (and, in any event, within two (2) Business Days of such collection) deposited by such Grantor in the exact form received, duly indorsed by such Grantor to Lender, in a Collateral Account, subject to withdrawal by Lender as provided in Section 6.4.  Until so turned over, such payment shall be held by such Grantor in trust for Lender for the benefit of itself and the other Secured Parties, segregated from other funds of such Grantor.  Each such deposit of proceeds of accounts and payments in respect of general intangibles relating to the Collateral shall, upon Lender’s request, be accompanied by a report identifying in reasonable detail the nature and source of the payments included in the deposit.

 

(b)                                 Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, each Grantor shall remain liable under each account and each payment in respect of general intangibles included in the Collateral to observe and perform all the conditions and obligations to be observed and performed by it thereunder, all in accordance with the terms of any agreement giving rise thereto.  Neither Lender nor any other Secured Party shall have any obligation or liability under any agreement giving rise to an account or a payment in respect of a general intangible included in the Collateral by reason of or arising out of any Loan Document or the receipt by Lender or any other Secured Party of any payment relating thereto, nor shall Lender or any other Secured Party be obligated in any manner to perform any obligation of any Grantor under or pursuant to any

 

16



 

agreement giving rise to an account or a payment in respect of a general intangible included in the Collateral, to make any payment, to make any inquiry as to the nature or the sufficiency of any payment received by it or as to the sufficiency of any performance by any party thereunder, to present or file any claim, to take any action to enforce any performance or to collect the payment of any amounts that may have been assigned to it or to which it may be entitled at any time or times.

 

Section 6.3.                                 Pledged Stock.

 

(a)                                 Voting Rights.  During the continuance of an Event of Default, all rights of each Grantor to exercise or refrain from exercising the voting and other consensual rights which it would otherwise be entitled to exercise pursuant hereto shall cease and all such rights shall thereupon become vested in Lender or a nominee on behalf of Lender or the other Secured Parties, who shall thereupon have the sole right to exercise such voting and other consensual rights, including the right to exercise (i) any voting, consent, corporate and other right pertaining to the Pledged Stock at any meeting of shareholders, partners or members, as the case may be, of the relevant issuer or issuers of Pledged Stock or otherwise, and (ii) any right of conversion, exchange and subscription and any other right, privilege or option pertaining to the Pledged Stock as if it were the absolute owner thereof (including the right to exchange at its discretion any Pledged Stock upon the merger, amalgamation, consolidation, reorganization, recapitalization or other fundamental change in the corporate or equivalent structure of any issuer of Pledged Stock, the right to deposit and deliver any Pledged Stock with any committee, depositary, transfer agent, registrar or other designated agency upon such terms and conditions as Lender on behalf of itself or the other Secured Parties may determine), all without liability except to account for property actually received by it; provided, however, that Lender shall have no duty to any Grantor to exercise any such right, privilege or option and shall not be responsible for any failure to do so or delay in so doing.

 

(b)                                 Proxies.  During the continuance of an Event of Default, in order to permit Lender on behalf of itself or the other Secured Parties to exercise the voting and other consensual rights that it may be entitled to exercise pursuant hereto and to receive all dividends and other distributions that it may be entitled to receive hereunder, (i) each Grantor shall promptly execute and deliver (or cause to be executed and delivered) to Lender all such proxies, dividend payment orders and other instruments as Lender may from time to time reasonably request and (ii) without limiting the effect of clause (i) above, such Grantor hereby grants to Lender for the benefit of itself and the other Secured Parties an irrevocable proxy to vote all or any part of the Pledged Stock and to exercise all other rights, powers, privileges and remedies to which a holder of the Pledged Stock would be entitled (including giving or withholding written consents of shareholders, partners or members, as the case may be, calling special meetings of shareholders, partners or members, as the case may be, and voting at such meetings), which proxy shall be effective, automatically and without the necessity of any action (including any transfer of any Pledged Stock on the record books of the issuer thereof) by any other Person (including the issuer of such Pledged Stock or any officer or agent thereof) during the continuance of an Event of Default and which proxy shall only terminate upon (i) the cure of any and all Events of Default or (ii) the indefeasible payment in full of the Secured Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations to the extent no claim giving rise thereto has been asserted).

 

17



 

(c)                                  Authorization of Issuers.  Each Grantor hereby expressly and irrevocably authorizes and instructs, without any further instructions from such Grantor, each issuer of any Pledged Stock pledged hereunder by such Grantor to, and each Grantor that is an issuer of Pledged Stock so pledged hereunder hereby agrees to (i) comply with any instruction received by it from Lender in writing that states that an Event of Default is continuing in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and each Grantor agrees that such issuer shall be fully protected from liabilities to such Grantor in so complying, and (ii) during the continuance of such Event of Default, unless otherwise permitted hereby or by the Loan Agreement, pay any dividend or make any other payment with respect to the Pledged Stock directly to Lender for the benefit of itself and the other Secured Parties.

 

Section 6.4.                                 Proceeds to be Turned over to and Held by Lender.  Unless otherwise expressly provided in the Loan Agreement or this Agreement, during the continuance of an Event of Default and, upon written notice by Lender to the relevant Grantor or Grantors, all proceeds of any Collateral received by any Grantor hereunder in cash or Cash Equivalents shall be held by such Grantor in trust for Lender and the other Secured Parties, segregated from other funds of such Grantor, and shall, promptly upon receipt by any Grantor, be turned over to Lender for the benefit of itself and the other Secured Parties in the exact form received (with any necessary endorsement).  All such proceeds of Collateral and any other proceeds of any Collateral received by Lender in cash or Cash Equivalents shall be held by Lender for the benefit of itself and the other Secured Parties in a Collateral Account.  All proceeds being held by Lender in a Collateral Account (or by such Grantor in trust for Lender and the other Secured Parties) shall continue to be held as collateral security for the Secured Obligations and shall not constitute payment thereof until applied as provided in the Loan Agreement.

 

Section 6.5.                                 Sale of Pledged Stock.

 

(a)                                 Each Grantor recognizes that Lender may be unable to effect a public sale of any Pledged Stock by reason of certain prohibitions contained in the Securities Act and applicable state or foreign securities laws or otherwise or may determine that a public sale is impracticable, not desirable or not commercially reasonable and, accordingly, may resort to one or more private sales thereof to a restricted group of purchasers that shall be obliged to agree, among other things, to acquire such securities for their own account for investment and not with a view to the distribution or resale thereof.  Each Grantor acknowledges and agrees that any such private sale may result in prices and other terms less favorable than if such sale were a public sale and, notwithstanding such circumstances, agrees that any such private sale shall be deemed to have been made in a commercially reasonable manner.  Lender shall be under no obligation to delay a sale of any Pledged Stock for the period of time necessary to permit the issuer thereof to register such securities for public sale under the Securities Act or under applicable state securities laws even if such issuer would agree to do so.

 

(b)                                 Each Grantor agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to do or cause to be done all such other acts as may be reasonably necessary to make such sale or sales of any portion of the Pledged Stock pursuant to Section 6.1 and this Section 6.5 valid and binding and in compliance with all applicable Requirements of Law.  Each Grantor further agrees that a breach of any covenant contained herein will cause irreparable injury to Lender and the other Secured Parties, that Lender and the other Secured Parties have no adequate remedy at law in

 

18



 

respect of such breach and, as a consequence, that each and every covenant contained herein shall be specifically enforceable against such Grantor, and such Grantor hereby waives and agrees not to assert any defense against an action for specific performance of such covenants except for a defense that no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing under the Loan Agreement or a defense of indefeasible payment in full of the Guaranteed Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations).  Each Grantor waives any and all rights of contribution or subrogation upon the sale or disposition of all or any portion of the Pledged Collateral by Lender on behalf of itself and the other Secured Parties.

 

Section 6.6.                                 Deficiency.  Each Grantor shall remain liable for any deficiency if the proceeds of any sale or other disposition of any Collateral are insufficient to pay the Secured Obligations and the reasonable and documented fees and disbursements of any attorney employed by Lender to collect such deficiency.

 

Section 6.7.                                 Collateral Accounts.  If any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, Lender may apply the balance from any Collateral Account of a Grantor or instruct the bank at which any Collateral Account is maintained to pay the balance of any Collateral Account to or for the benefit of Lender on behalf of itself and the other Secured Parties, to be applied to the Secured Obligations in accordance with the terms hereof.

 

Section 6.8.                                 Directions, Notices or Instructions.  Lender or any Related Party thereof or any other Secured Party shall not take any action under or issue any directions, notice or instructions pursuant to any Control Agreement or similar agreement unless an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.

 

ARTICLE VII

Section 7.1.                                 Lender’s Appointment as Attorney-in-Fact.

 

(a)                                 Each Grantor hereby irrevocably constitutes and appoints Lender and any Related Party thereof, with full power of substitution, as its true and lawful attorney-in-fact with full irrevocable power and authority in the place and stead of such Grantor and in the name of such Grantor or in its own name, for the purpose of carrying out the terms of the Loan Documents, to take any appropriate action and to execute any document or instrument that may be necessary or desirable to accomplish the purposes of the Loan Documents during the continuance of an Event of Default, and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Grantor hereby gives Lender and its Related Party the power and right, on behalf of such Grantor, without notice to or assent by such Grantor, to do any of the following when an Event of Default shall be continuing:

 

(i)                                     in the name of such Grantor, in its own name or otherwise, take possession of and indorse and collect any check, draft, note, acceptance or other instrument for the payment of moneys due under any account or general intangible or with respect to any other Collateral and file any claim or take any other action or proceeding in any court of law or equity or otherwise deemed appropriate by Lender for the purpose of collecting any such moneys due

 

19



 

under any account or general intangible or with respect to any other Collateral whenever payable;

 

(ii)                                  in the case of any Intellectual Property (including any IP Ancillary Rights) or any IP Licenses included in the Collateral, execute, deliver and have recorded any document that Lender may request to evidence, effect, publicize or record Lender’s security interest in such Intellectual Property or IP Licenses and the goodwill and general intangibles of such Grantor relating thereto or represented thereby and Lender’s (on behalf of itself and the other Secured Parties) rights and remedies with respect thereto;

 

(iii)                               pay or discharge taxes and Liens levied or placed on or threatened against any Collateral, effect any repair or obtain or pay any insurance called for by the terms of the Loan Agreement (including all or any part of the premiums therefor and the costs thereof);

 

(iv)                              execute, in connection with any sale provided for in Section 6.1 or 6.5, any document to effect or otherwise necessary or appropriate in relation to evidence the sale of any Collateral; or

 

(v)                                 (A) direct any party liable for any payment under any Collateral to make payment of any moneys due or to become due thereunder directly to Lender or as Lender shall direct, (B) ask or demand for, and collect and receive payment of and receipt for, any moneys, claims and other amounts due or to become due at any time in respect of or arising out of any Collateral, (C) commence and prosecute any suit, action or proceeding at law or in equity in any court of competent jurisdiction to collect any Collateral and to enforce any other right in respect of any Collateral, (D) defend any actions, suits, proceedings, audits, claims, demands, orders or disputes brought against such Grantor with respect to any Collateral, (E) settle, compromise or adjust any such actions, suits, proceedings, audits, claims, demands, orders or disputes and, in connection therewith, give such discharges or releases as Lender may deem appropriate, (F) assign or license any Intellectual Property included in the Collateral on such terms and conditions and in such manner as Lender shall in its sole discretion determine, including the execution and filing of any document necessary to effectuate or record such assignment or license and (G) generally, sell, assign, license, convey, transfer or grant a Lien on, make any contractual obligation with respect to and otherwise deal with, any Collateral as fully and completely as though Lender on behalf of itself and the other Secured Parties were the absolute owner thereof for all purposes and do, at Lender’s option, at any time or from time to time, all acts and things that Lender deems necessary to protect, preserve or realize upon any Collateral and Lender’s and the other Secured Parties’ security interests therein and to effect the intent of the Loan Documents, all as fully and effectively as such Grantor might do.

 

(vi)                              If any Grantor fails to perform or comply with any contractual obligation contained herein, Lender, at its option, but without any obligation so to do, may perform or comply, or otherwise cause performance or compliance, with such contractual obligation.

Lender to the date reimbursed by the relevant Grantor, shall be payable by such Grantor to Lender on demand.

 

(c)                                  Each Grantor hereby ratifies all that said attorneys shall lawfully do or cause to be done by virtue of this Section 7.1.  All powers, authorizations and agencies contained in this Agreement are coupled with an interest and are irrevocable until the indefeasible payment in full of the Secured Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations), this Agreement is terminated and the security interests created hereby are released.

 

Section 7.2.                                 Authorization to File Financing Statements.  Until the Guaranteed Obligations are paid in full, each Grantor authorizes Lender and its Related Party, at any time and from time to time, without notice to any Grantor, to file or record financing statements, amendments thereto, and other filing or recording documents or instruments with respect to any Collateral in such form, in such jurisdictions and in such offices as Lender reasonably determines appropriate to perfect or protect the security interests of Lender and the other Secured Parties under this Agreement or any other Loan Document (and Lender’s and the other Secured Parties’ rights in respect thereof).  A photographic or other reproduction of this Agreement shall be sufficient as a financing statement or other filing or recording document or instrument for filing or recording in any jurisdiction.  Such Grantor also hereby ratifies its authorization for Lender to have filed any initial financing statement or amendment thereto under the Code (or other similar laws) in effect in any jurisdiction if filed prior to the date hereof.

 

Section 7.3.                                 Authority of Lender.  Each Grantor acknowledges that, as between Lender and the Grantors, Lender shall be conclusively presumed to be acting as agent for itself and all of the other Secured Parties with full and valid authority so to act or refrain from acting, and no Grantor shall be under any obligation or entitlement to make any inquiry respecting such authority.

 

Section 7.4.                                 Duty; Obligations and Liabilities.

 

(a)                                 Duty of Lender.  Lender’s sole duty with respect to the custody, safekeeping and physical preservation of the Collateral in its possession shall be to deal with it in the same manner as Lender deals with similar property for its own account.  The powers conferred on Lender hereunder are solely to protect Lender’s and the other Secured Parties’ interest in the Collateral and shall not impose any duty upon Lender to exercise any such powers.  Lender shall be accountable only for amounts that it receives as a result of the exercise of such powers, and neither it nor any of its Related Parties shall be responsible to any Grantor for any act or failure to act hereunder, except for its or their own gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct as finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction.  In addition, Lender shall not be liable or responsible for any loss or damage to any Collateral, or for any diminution in the value thereof, by reason of the act or omission of any warehousemen, carrier, forwarding agency, consignee or other bailee if such Person has been selected by Lender in good faith.

 

(b)                                 Obligations and Liabilities with respect to Collateral.  Neither Lender nor any other Secured Party nor any of their respective Related Parties shall be liable for failure to demand, collect or realize upon any Collateral or for any delay in doing so or shall be under any

 

21



 

obligation to sell or otherwise dispose of any Collateral upon the request of any Grantor or any other Person or to take any other action whatsoever with regard to any Collateral.

 

ARTICLE VIII

 

MISCELLANEOUS

 

Section 8.1.                                 Reinstatement.  Each Grantor agrees that, if any payment made by any Credit Party or other Person and applied to the Secured Obligations is at any time annulled, avoided, set aside, rescinded, invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential or otherwise required to be refunded or repaid, or the proceeds of any Collateral are required to be returned by any Secured Party to such Credit Party, its estate, trustee, receiver or any other party, including any Grantor, under any bankruptcy law, state or federal law, common law or equitable cause, then, to the extent of such payment or repayment, any Lien or other Collateral securing such liability shall be and remain in full force and effect, as fully as if such payment had never been made.  If, prior to any of the foregoing, (a) any Lien or other Collateral securing such Grantor’s liability hereunder shall have been released or terminated by virtue of the foregoing or (b) any provision of the Guaranty hereunder shall have been terminated, cancelled or surrendered, such Lien, other Collateral or provision shall be reinstated in full force and effect and such prior release, termination, cancellation or surrender shall not diminish, release, discharge, impair or otherwise affect the obligations of such Grantor in respect of any Lien or other Collateral securing such obligation or the amount of such payment.

 

Section 8.2.                                 Release of Collateral and Guarantee Obligations.

 

(a)                                 When all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations)  have indefeasibly been paid in full, the Collateral shall be released from the Lien created hereby and this Agreement and all obligations (other than those expressly stated to survive such termination) of Lender or any other Secured Party and each Guarantor and Grantor hereunder shall terminate, all without delivery of any instrument or performance of any act by any party (except as required hereunder), and all rights of Lender and any other Secured Party to the Collateral shall revert to the Grantors.

 

(b)                                 In connection with any termination or release pursuant to this Section 8.2, Lender shall, and to the extent required, Lender and each other Secured Party hereby authorizes Lender to, promptly execute and deliver to any Grantor all instruments, documents and agreements which such Grantor shall reasonably request in writing to evidence and confirm such termination or release (including termination statements under the Code), and will duly assign, transfer and deliver to such Grantor (or its designee), such of the Collateral that may be in the possession of Lender, all without further consent or joinder of Lender or any other Secured Party.

 

(c)                                  Any termination or release pursuant to this Section 8.2 is subject to reinstatement as provided in Section 8.1.

 

(d)                                 Upon the release of the Liens on any Collateral or of a Grantor from all of its obligations as a Credit Party under the Loan Agreement and as a Grantor hereunder, any

 

22



 

representation, warranty or covenant contained in any Loan Document relating to any such Collateral or such Grantor, as applicable, shall no longer be deemed to be made.

 

(e)                                  Without limiting the generality of Section 2.4 of the Loan Agreement, Borrower agrees to pay all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Lender and each other Secured Party in connection with the taking of any actions pursuant to or as otherwise contemplated by this Section 8.2.

 

Section 8.3.                                 Independent Obligations.  The obligations of each Grantor hereunder are independent of and separate from the Secured Obligations and the Guaranteed Obligations.  Upon any Event of Default and during the continuance thereof, Lender for the benefit of itself and the other Secured Parties may, at its sole election, proceed directly and at once, without notice, against any Grantor and any Collateral to collect and recover the full amount of any Secured Obligation or Guaranteed Obligation then due, without first proceeding against any other Grantor, any other Credit Party or any other Collateral and without first joining any other Grantor or any other Credit Party in any proceeding.

 

Section 8.4.                                 No Waiver by Course of Conduct.  Neither Lender nor any other Secured Party shall by any act (except by a written instrument pursuant to Section 8.5), delay, indulgence, omission or otherwise be deemed to have waived any right or remedy hereunder or to have acquiesced in any Default or Event of Default.  No failure to exercise, nor any delay in exercising, on the part of Lender or any other Secured Party, any right, power or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof.  No single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege hereunder shall preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege.  A waiver by Lender or any other Secured Party of any right or remedy hereunder on any one occasion shall not be construed as a bar to any right or remedy that Lender or any other Secured Party would otherwise have on any future occasion.

 

Section 8.5.                                 Amendments in Writing.  None of the terms or provisions of this Agreement may be waived, amended, supplemented or otherwise modified except in accordance with Section 11.5 of the Loan Agreement; provided, however, that annexes to this Agreement may be supplemented (but no existing provisions may be modified and no Collateral may be released) through Pledge Amendments and Joinder Agreements, in substantially the form of Annex 1 and Annex 2 attached hereto, respectively, in each case, duly executed by Lender and each Grantor directly affected thereby.

 

Section 8.6.                                 Additional Grantors and Guarantors; Additional Pledged Collateral.

 

(a)                                 Joinder Agreements.  If, at the option of Borrower or as required pursuant to Section 5.12 or Section 5.13 of the Loan Agreement, Borrower shall cause any Domestic Subsidiary (other than Excluded Subsidiaries) that is not a Grantor or Guarantor to become a Grantor and Guarantor hereunder, such Domestic Subsidiary shall execute and deliver to Lender a Joinder Agreement substantially in the form of Annex 2 attached hereto and shall thereafter for all purposes be a party hereto and have the same rights, benefits and obligations as a Grantor party hereto on the Closing Date.

 

23



 

(b)                                 Pledge Amendments.  To the extent any Pledged Stock has not been delivered as of the Closing Date, such Grantor shall deliver a pledge amendment duly executed by the Grantor in substantially the form of Annex 1 attached hereto (each, a “Pledge Amendment”) promptly (but no later than the date occurring thirty (30) days or such longer period as Lender may agree in is sole discretion) after such Pledged Stock is acquired.  Such Grantor authorizes Lender to attach each Pledge Amendment to this Agreement.

 

Section 8.7.                                 Notices.  All notices, requests and demands to or upon Lender or any Grantor hereunder shall be effected in the manner provided for in Section 9 of the Loan Agreement; provided, however, that any such notice, request or demand to or upon any Grantor shall be addressed to Borrower’s notice address set forth in Section 9 of the Loan Agreement.

 

Section 8.8.                                 Successors and Assigns.  This Agreement shall be binding upon the successors and assigns of each Grantor and shall inure to the benefit of each Secured Party and their successors and assigns; provided, however, that no Grantor may assign, transfer or delegate any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of Lender.

 

Section 8.9.                                 Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties in separate counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement.  Signature pages may be detached from multiple separate counterparts and attached to a single counterpart.  Delivery of an executed signature page of this Agreement by facsimile transmission or by electronic transmission shall be as effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart hereof.

 

Section 8.10.                          Severability.  Any provision of this Agreement being held illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall not affect any part of such provision not held illegal, invalid or unenforceable, any other provision of this Agreement or any part of such provision in any other jurisdiction.

 

Section 8.11.                          Governing Law.  This Agreement and the rights and obligations of the parties hereto shall be governed by, and construed and interpreted in accordance with, the law of the State of New York without regard to any principle of conflicts of law that could require the application of the law of any other jurisdiction.

 

Section 8.12.                          Waiver of Jury Trial.  TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING WITH RESPECT TO, OR DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THIS AGREEMENT, ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREIN AND THEREIN OR RELATED HERETO OR THERETO (WHETHER FOUNDED IN CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY).  EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO OTHER PARTY AND NO RELATED PARTY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER, (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE

 

24



 

OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 8.12 AND (C) HAS REVIEWED THIS WAIVER WITH ITS COUNSEL.

 

EACH GRANTOR AGREES TO BE BOUND BY THE PROVISIONS OF SECTION 10 OF THE LOAN AGREEMENT.
