(ii) Repayments and Conversions.  The Administrative Borrower may (A) subject to Section 2.5, at any time without prior notice repay a Base Rate Advance, or (B) upon at least three (3) Business Days’ irrevocable prior written notice by the Administrative Borrower to the Administrative Agent in the form of a Notice of Conversion/Continuation, convert all or a portion of the principal thereof to one or more Eurodollar Advances.  Upon the date indicated by the Administrative Borrower, such Base Rate Advance shall be so repaid or converted.
 
(c) Eurodollar Advances.
 
(i) Initial and Subsequent Advances.  The Administrative Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent in the case of Eurodollar Advances irrevocable notice by telephone not later than 1:00 p.m. (Atlanta, Georgia time) three (3) Business Days prior to the date of such Eurodollar Advance and shall immediately confirm any such telephone notice with a written Request for Advance; provided that the failure by the Administrative Borrower to confirm any notice by telephone with a written Request for Advance shall not invalidate any notice so given.
 
(ii) Repayments, Continuations and Conversions.  At least three (3) Business Days prior to each Payment Date for a Eurodollar Advance, the Administrative Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent written notice in the form of a Notice of Conversion/Continuation specifying whether all or a portion of such Eurodollar Advance outstanding on such Payment Date is to be continued in whole or in part as one or more new Eurodollar Advances and also specifying the new Eurodollar Advance Period applicable to each such new Eurodollar Advance (and subject to the provisions of this Agreement, upon such Payment Date, such Eurodollar Advance shall be so continued).  Upon such Payment Date, any Eurodollar Advance (or portion thereof) not so continued shall be converted to a Base Rate Advance or, subject to Section 2.5, be repaid.
 
(iii) Miscellaneous.  Notwithstanding any term or provision of this Agreement which may be construed to the contrary, each Eurodollar Advance shall be in a principal amount of no less than $2,500,000 and in an integral multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof, and at no time shall the aggregate number of all Eurodollar Advances then outstanding exceed six (6).
 
(d) Notification of Lenders.  Upon receipt of a (i) Request for Advance or a telephone or telecopy request for Advance, (ii) notification from the Issuing Bank that a draw has been made under any Letter of Credit (unless the Issuing Bank will be reimbursed through the funding of a Swing Loan), or (iii) notice from the Administrative Borrower with respect to the prepayment of any outstanding Eurodollar Advance prior to the Payment Date for such Advance, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender by telephone or telecopy of the contents thereof and the amount of each Lender’s portion of any such Advance.  Each Lender shall, not later than 3:30 p.m. (Atlanta, Georgia time) on the date specified for such Advance (under clause (i) or (ii) above) in such notice, make available to the Administrative Agent at the Administrative Agent’s Office, or at such account as the Administrative Agent shall designate, the amount of such Lender’s portion of the Advance in immediately available funds.
 
(e) Disbursement.  Prior to 3:30 p.m. (Atlanta, Georgia time) with respect to Base Rate Advances and Eurodollar Advances and prior to 4:00 p.m. (Atlanta, Georgia time) with respect to Swing Loans on the date of an Advance hereunder, the Administrative Agent shall, subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Article 4, disburse the amounts made available to the Administrative Agent by the Lenders in like funds by (i) transferring the amounts so made available by wire transfer to the Borrowers’ Principal Disbursement Account or (ii) in the case of an Advance the proceeds of which are to reimburse the Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 2.15, transferring such amounts to such Issuing Bank.  Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to 5:00 p.m. (Atlanta, Georgia time) one (1) Business Day prior to the date of any Advance that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s ratable portion of such Advance, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made or will make such portion available to the Administrative Agent on the date of such Advance and the Administrative Agent may, in its sole discretion and in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrowers or the Issuing Bank, as applicable, on such date a corresponding amount.  If and to the extent such Lender shall not have so made such ratable portion available to the Administrative Agent, such Lender agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is made available to the Borrowers or the Issuing Bank, as applicable, until the date such amount is repaid to the Administrative Agent, (x) for the first two (2) Business Days, at the Federal Funds Rate for such Business Days, and (y) thereafter, at the Base Rate.  If such Lender shall repay to the Administrative Agent such corresponding amount, such amount so repaid shall constitute such Lender’s portion of the applicable Advance for purposes of this Agreement and if both such Lender and the Borrowers shall pay and repay such corresponding amount, the Administrative Agent shall promptly relend to the Borrowers such corresponding amount.  If such Lender does not repay such corresponding amount immediately upon the Administrative Agent’s demand therefor, the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrowers and the Borrowers shall immediately pay such corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent.  The failure of any Lender to fund its portion of any Advance shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligation, if any, hereunder to fund its respective portion of the Advance on the date of such borrowing, but no Lender shall be responsible for any such failure of any other Lender.
 
(f) Deemed Requests for Advance.  Unless payment is otherwise timely made by the Borrowers, the becoming due of any amount required to be paid under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents as principal, interest, reimbursement obligations in connection with Letters of Credit, premiums, fees, reimbursable expenses or other sums payable hereunder shall be deemed irrevocably to be a Request for Advance on the due date of, and in an aggregate amount required to pay, such principal, interest, reimbursement obligations in connection with Letters of Credit, premiums, fees, reimbursable expenses or other sums payable hereunder, and the proceeds of a Revolving Loan made pursuant thereto may be disbursed by way of direct payment of the relevant Obligation and shall bear interest as a Base Rate Advance.  The Lenders shall have no obligation to the Borrowers to honor any deemed Request for Advance under this Section 2.2(f) unless all the conditions set forth in Section 4.2 have been satisfied, but, with the consent of the Lenders required under the last sentence of Section 4.2, may do so in their sole discretion and without regard to the existence of, and without being deemed to have waived, any Default and without regard to the failure by the Borrowers to satisfy any of the conditions set forth in Section 4.2.  No further authorization, direction or approval by the Borrowers shall be required to be given by the Borrowers for any deemed Request for Advance under this Section 2.2(f).  The Administrative Agent shall promptly provide to the Administrative Borrower written notice of any Advance pursuant to this Section 2.2(f).
 
(g) Special Provisions Pertaining to Swing Loans.
 
(i) The Administrative Borrower shall give the Swing Bank written notice in the form of a Request for Advance, or notice by telephone no later than 2:00 p.m. (Atlanta, Georgia time) on the date on which the Borrowers wish to receive an Advance of any Swing Loan followed immediately by a written Request for Advance, with a copy to the Administrative Agent; provided that the failure by the Administrative Borrower to confirm any notice by telephone with a written Request for Advance shall not invalidate any notice so given; provided, further, that any request by the Administrative Borrower of a Base Rate Advance under the Revolving Loan Commitments shall be deemed to be a request for a Swing Loan unless the Administrative Borrower specifically requests otherwise.  Each Swing Loan shall bear interest at the rate equal to the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin.  If the Swing Bank, in its sole discretion, elects to make the requested Swing Loan, the Swing Loan shall be made on the date specified in the notice or the Request for Advance and such notice or Request for Advance shall specify (i) the amount of the requested Swing Loan and (ii) instructions for the disbursement of the proceeds of the requested Swing Loan.  Each Swing Loan shall be subject to all the terms and conditions applicable to Revolving Loans, except that all payments thereon shall be payable to the Swing Bank solely for its own account.  The Swing Bank shall have no duty or obligation to make any Swing Loans hereunder.  The Swing Bank shall not make any Swing Loans if the Swing Bank has received written notice from any Lender (or the Swing Bank has actual knowledge) that one or more applicable conditions precedent set forth in Section 4.2 will not be satisfied (or waived pursuant to the last sentence of Section 4.2) on the requested Advance date.  In the event the Swing Bank in its sole and absolute discretion elects to make any requested Swing Loan, the Swing Bank shall make the proceeds of such Swing Loan available to the Borrowers by deposit of Dollars in same day funds by wire transfer to the Principal Disbursement Account.  In the event that the Swing Bank informs the Administrative Agent that it will not make the requested Advance as a Swing Loan, then such request will be deemed a request for a Base Rate Advance under the Revolving Loan Commitments.
 
(ii) The Swing Bank shall notify the Administrative Agent and each Lender no less frequently than weekly, as determined by the Administrative Agent, of the principal amount of Swing Loans outstanding as of 3:00 p.m. (Atlanta, Georgia time) as of such date and each Lender’s pro rata share (based on its Revolving Commitment Ratio) thereof.  Each Lender shall before 12:00 Noon (Atlanta, Georgia time) on the next Business Day make available to the Administrative Agent, in immediately available funds, the amount of its pro rata share (based on its Revolving Commitment Ratio) of such principal amount of Swing Loans outstanding.  Upon such payment by a Lender, such Lender shall be deemed to have made a Revolving Loan to the Borrowers, notwithstanding any failure of the Borrowers to satisfy the conditions in Section 4.2.  The Administrative Agent shall use such funds to repay the principal amount of Swing Loans to the Swing Bank.  Additionally, if at any time any Swing Loans are outstanding, any of the events described in Sections 9.1(g) or 9.1(h) shall have occurred, then each Lender shall automatically upon the occurrence of such event and without any action on the part of the Swing Bank, the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent or the Lenders be deemed to have purchased an undivided participation in the principal and interest of all Swing Loans then outstanding in an amount equal to such Lender’s Revolving Commitment Ratio of the principal and interest of all Swing Loans then outstanding and each Lender shall, notwithstanding such Event of Default, immediately pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swing Bank in immediately available funds, the amount of such Lender’s participation (and upon receipt thereof, the Swing Bank shall deliver to such Lender a loan participation certificate dated the date of receipt of such funds in such amount).  The disbursement of funds in connection with the settlement of Swing Loans hereunder shall be subject to the terms and conditions of Section 2.2(e).

(iii) If No Notice of Selection of Interest Rate.  If the Administrative Borrower fails to give the Administrative Agent timely notice of its selection of a Eurodollar Basis, or if for any reason a determination of a Eurodollar Basis for any Advance is not timely concluded, the Base Rate shall apply to such Advance.  If the Administrative Borrower fails to elect to continue any Eurodollar Advance then outstanding prior to the last Payment Date applicable thereto in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.2, as applicable, the Base Rate shall apply to such Advance commencing on and after such Payment Date.
 
(b) Default Rate.  While an Event of Default exists, at the option of the Required Lenders, and after acceleration, interest on the outstanding Obligations shall accrue at the Default Rate.  Interest accruing at the Default Rate shall be payable on demand and in any event on the Maturity Date (or the date of any earlier prepayment in full of the Obligations) and shall accrue until the earliest to occur of (i) waiver of the applicable Event of Default in accordance with Section 11.12, (ii) agreement by the Required Lenders to rescind the charging of interest at the Default Rate, or (iii) payment in full of the Obligations.  The Lenders shall not be required to (A) accelerate the maturity of the Loans, (B) terminate the Commitments, or (C) exercise any other rights or remedies under the Loan Documents in order to charge interest hereunder at the Default Rate.
 
(c) Computation of Interest.  In computing interest on any Advance, the date of making the Advance shall be included and the date of payment shall be excluded; provided that if an Advance is repaid on the date that it is made, one (1) day’s interest shall be due with respect to such Advance.

(i) The Borrowers shall, jointly and severally, pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders, in accordance with their respective Revolving Commitment Ratios, a fee on the stated amount of any outstanding Letters of Credit for each day from the Date of Issue through the Maturity Date (or the date of any earlier prepayment in full of the Obligations) at a rate per annum on the amount of the Letter of Credit Obligations equal to the Applicable Margin in effect from time to time with respect to Eurodollar Advances.  Such Letter of Credit fee shall be computed on the basis of a hypothetical year of three hundred sixty (360) days for the actual number of days elapsed, shall be payable monthly in arrears for each calendar month on the first day of the immediately succeeding calendar month, commencing on September 1, 2011, and, if then unpaid, on the Maturity Date (or the date of any earlier prepayment in full of the Obligations), and shall be fully earned when due and non-refundable when paid.

Section 2.6 Repayment.
 
(a) The Revolving Loans.  All unpaid principal and accrued interest on the Revolving Loans shall be due and payable in full on the Maturity Date.  Except for Overadvances permitted under Section 2.1(d), in the event and on such occasion that the Aggregate Revolving Credit Obligations exceed the lesser of (A) the Aggregate Revolving Loan Commitments or (B) the Borrowing Base, the Borrowers shall prepay the Revolving Loans, Agent Advances, Swing Loans, Overadvances or Letter of Credit Reserve Account, as appropriate, by an aggregate amount equal to such excess.
 
(b) Other Mandatory Repayments.
 
(i) In the event that after the Agreement Date any Credit Party shall issue any Equity Interests or shall incur any Funded Debt, other than Funded Debt permitted under Section 8.1, one hundred percent (100%) of the Net Cash Proceeds received by such Credit Party from such issuance or incurrence shall be paid on the date of receipt of the proceeds thereof by such Credit Party to the Lenders as a mandatory payment of the Obligations.  Any payment due hereunder shall be applied first to repay outstanding Agent Advances and Overadvances, second to repay outstanding Swing Loans, third to repay outstanding Revolving Loans, and fourth to fund the Letter of Credit Reserve Account to the extent of one hundred five percent (105%) of any Letter of Credit Obligations then outstanding.  So long as no Event of Default exists, all such other Net Cash Proceeds shall be applied in the manner set forth in Section 2.11(a).  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if an Event of Default exists, all such Net Cash Proceeds shall be applied in the manner set forth in Section 2.11(b).  The Revolving Loan Commitments shall not be permanently reduced by the amount of any payment of the Agent Advances, Swing Loans or Revolving Loans due under this Section 2.6(b)(i).  Nothing in this Section shall authorize any Credit Party incur any Funded Debt except as expressly permitted by this Agreement or to issue any Equity Interests except to the extent not prohibited by this Agreement.

Section 2.7 Notes; Loan Accounts.
 
(a) The Loans shall be repayable in accordance with the terms and provisions set forth herein and, upon request by any Lender, the Loans owed to such Lender shall be evidenced by Revolving Loan Notes or Swing Loan Note, as applicable.  The Notes shall be payable to the order of each Lender requesting such a Note in accordance with the Revolving Commitment Ratio of such Lender.  Each such Note shall be issued by the Borrowers to the applicable Lender and shall be duly executed and delivered by an Authorized Signatory of each Borrower.
 
(b) The Administrative Agent shall open and maintain on its books in the name of the Borrowers a loan account with respect to the Loans and interest thereon (the “Loan Account”).  The Administrative Agent shall debit such Loan Account for the principal amount of each Advance made by it on behalf of the Lenders, accrued interest thereon, and all other amounts which shall become due from the Borrowers pursuant to this Agreement and shall credit the Loan Account for each payment which the Borrowers shall make in respect to the Obligations.  The records of the Administrative Agent with respect to such Loan Account shall be conclusive evidence of the Loans and accrued interest thereon, absent manifest error.
 
Section 2.8 Manner of Payment.
 
(a) Each payment (including any prepayment) by the Borrowers on account of the principal of or interest on the Loans, fees, and any other amount owed to any member of the Lender Group under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents shall be made not later than 12:00 noon (Atlanta, Georgia time) on the date specified for payment under this Agreement or any other Loan Document to the Administrative Agent at the Administrative Agent’s Office, for the account of the Lenders, the Issuing Bank or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, in Dollars in immediately available funds.  Any payment received by the Administrative Agent after 12:00 noon (Atlanta, Georgia time) shall be deemed received on the next Business Day.  In the case of a payment for the account of a Lender, the Administrative Agent will promptly thereafter distribute the amount so received in like funds to such Lender.  In the case of a payment for the account of the Issuing Bank, the Administrative Agent will promptly thereafter distribute the amount so received in like funds to the Issuing Bank.  If the Administrative Agent shall not have received any payment from the Borrowers as and when due, the Administrative Agent will promptly notify the Lenders accordingly.
 
(b) Except as provided in the definition of Eurodollar Advance Period, if any payment under this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be specified to be made on a day which is not a Business Day, it shall be made on the next succeeding day which is a Business Day, and such extension of time shall in such case be included in computing interest and fees, if any, in connection with such payment.
 
Section 2.9 Reimbursement.  Whenever any Lender shall sustain or incur any losses (including losses of anticipated profits) or out-of-pocket expenses in connection with (a) failure by the Borrowers to borrow or continue any Eurodollar Advance, or convert any Advance to a Eurodollar Advance, in each case, after having given notice of their intention to do so in accordance with Section 2.2 (whether by reason of the election of the Borrowers not to proceed or the non-fulfillment of any of the conditions set forth in this Agreement), (b) prepayment of any Eurodollar Advance in whole or in part for any reason or (c) failure by the Borrowers to prepay any Eurodollar Advance after giving notice of its intention to prepay such Advance, the Borrowers agree to pay, jointly and severally, to such Lender, promptly upon such Lender’s demand therefor, an amount sufficient to compensate such Lender for all such losses and out-of-pocket expenses.  Such Lender’s good faith determination of the amount of such losses and out-of-pocket expenses, absent manifest error, shall be binding and conclusive.  Losses subject to reimbursement hereunder shall include, without limitation, expenses incurred by any Lender or any participant of such Lender permitted hereunder in connection with the re-employment of funds prepaid, repaid, not borrowed, or paid, as the case may be, and any lost profit of such Lender or any participant of such Lender over the remainder of the Eurodollar Advance Period for such prepaid Advance.  For purposes of calculating amounts payable to a Lender under this Section, each Lender shall be deemed to have actually funded its relevant Eurodollar Advance through the purchase of a deposit bearing interest at the Eurodollar Rate in an amount equal to the amount of that Eurodollar Advance and having a maturity and repricing characteristics comparable to the relevant Eurodollar Advance Period; provided that each Lender may fund each of its Eurodollar Advances in any manner it sees fit, and the foregoing assumption shall be utilized only for the calculation of amounts payable under this Section.
 
Section 2.10 Pro Rata Treatment.
 
(a) Advances.  Each Advance with respect to the Revolving Loans from the Lenders under this Agreement shall be made pro rata on the basis of their respective Revolving Commitment Ratios.
 
(b) Payments.  Each payment and prepayment of the principal of the Revolving Loans and each payment of interest on the Revolving Loans received from the Borrowers shall be made by the Administrative Agent to the Lenders pro rata on the basis of their respective unpaid principal amounts thereof outstanding immediately prior to such payment or prepayment (except in cases when a Lender’s right to receive payments is restricted pursuant to Section 2.2(e)).  If any Lender shall obtain any payment (whether involuntary, through the exercise of any right of set-off or otherwise) on account of the Loans in excess of its ratable share of Loans under its Aggregate Commitment Ratio (or in violation of any restriction set forth in Section 2.2(e)), such Lender shall forthwith purchase from the other Lenders such participation in the Loans made by them as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender to share the excess payment ratably with each of them; provided that if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from such purchasing Lender, such purchase from each Lender shall be rescinded and such Lender shall repay to the purchasing Lender the purchase price to the extent of such recovery without interest thereon unless the Lender obligated to repay such amount is required to pay interest.  The Borrowers agree that any Lender so purchasing a participation from another Lender pursuant to this Section 2.10(b) may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all its rights of payment (including the right of set-off) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were the direct creditor of the Borrowers in the amount of such participation.

Section 2.14 Maximum Rate of Interest.  The Borrowers and the Lender Group hereby agree and stipulate that the only charges imposed upon the Borrowers for the use of money in connection with this Agreement are and shall be the specific interest and fees described in this Article 2 and in any other Loan Document.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrowers and the Lender Group further agree and stipulate that all closing fees, agency fees, syndication fees, facility fees, underwriting fees, default charges, late charges, funding or “breakage” charges, increased cost charges, attorneys’ fees and reimbursement for costs and expenses paid by any member of the Lender Group to third parties or for damages incurred by the Lender Group, or any of them, are charges to compensate the Lender Group for underwriting and administrative services and costs or losses performed or incurred, and to be performed and incurred, by the Lender Group in connection with this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and shall under no circumstances be deemed to be charges for the use of money pursuant to Official Code of Georgia Annotated Sections 7-4-2 and 7-4-18 or any other Applicable Law.  In no event shall the amount of interest and other charges for the use of money payable under this Agreement exceed the maximum amounts permissible under any law that a court of competent jurisdiction shall, in a final determination, deem applicable.  The Borrowers and the Lender Group, in executing and delivering this Agreement, intend legally to agree upon the rate or rates of interest and other charges for the use of money and manner of payment stated within it; provided that, anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, if the amount of such interest and other charges for the use of money or manner of payment exceeds the maximum amount allowable under Applicable Law, then, ipso facto as of the Agreement Date, the Borrowers are and shall be liable only for the payment of such maximum as allowed by law, and payment received from the Borrowers in excess of such legal maximum, whenever received, shall be applied to reduce the principal balance of the Revolving Loans to the extent of such excess.
 
Section 2.15 Letters of Credit.
 
(a) Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Issuing Bank, on behalf of the Lenders, and in reliance on the agreements of the Lenders set forth in Section 2.15(c) below, hereby agrees to issue one or more Letters of Credit up to an aggregate face amount equal to the Letter of Credit Commitment; provided that, except as described in the last sentence of Section 4.3, the Issuing Bank shall not issue any Letter of Credit unless the conditions precedent to the issuance thereof set forth in Section 4.3 have been satisfied.  Each Letter of Credit shall (i) be denominated in Dollars, and (ii) expire no later than the earlier to occur of (A) the date 360 days after its date of issuance, renewal or extension (but subject to the foregoing may provide for automatic renewal in the absence of a notice of non-renewal by the Issuing Bank) and (B) the date that is five (5) Business Days prior to the Maturity Date.  Each Letter of Credit shall be subject to the Uniform Customs and, to the extent not inconsistent therewith, the laws of the State of Georgia.  The Issuing Bank shall not at any time be obligated to issue, or cause to be issued, any Letter of Credit if such issuance would conflict with, or cause the Issuing Bank to exceed any limits imposed by, any Applicable Law.
 
(b) The Administrative Borrower may from time to time request that the Issuing Bank issue a Letter of Credit.  The Administrative Borrower shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Bank a Request for Issuance of Letter of Credit for each Letter of Credit to be issued by the Issuing Bank, not later than 1:00 p.m. (Atlanta, Georgia time) on the third (3rd) Business Day preceding the date on which the requested Letter of Credit is to be issued, or such shorter notice as may be acceptable to the Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent.  Upon receipt of any such Request for Issuance of Letter of Credit, subject to satisfaction of all conditions precedent thereto as set forth in Section 4.3 or waiver of such conditions pursuant to the last sentence of Section 4.3, the Issuing Bank shall process such Request for Issuance of Letter of Credit and the certificates, documents and other papers and information delivered to it in connection therewith in accordance with its customary procedures and shall promptly issue the Letter of Credit requested thereby.  The Issuing Bank shall furnish a copy of such Letter of Credit to the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent following the issuance thereof.  In addition to the fees payable pursuant to Section 2.4(c)(ii), the Borrowers shall pay or reimburse the Issuing Bank for normal and customary costs and expenses incurred by the Issuing Bank in issuing, effecting payment under, amending or otherwise administering the Letters of Credit.
 
(c) The Issuing Bank shall be deemed to have sold and transferred to each Lender, and each Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase and receive from the Issuing Bank, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation, to the extent of such Lender’s Revolving Commitment Ratio, in such Letter of Credit and the obligations of the Borrowers with respect thereto (including, without limitation, all Letter of Credit Obligations with respect thereto) on the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit.  The Issuing Bank shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent of any draw under a Letter of Credit.  At such time as the Administrative Agent shall be notified by the Issuing Bank that the beneficiary under any Letter of Credit has drawn on the same, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Administrative Borrower and the Swing Bank (or, at its option, all Lenders), by telephone or telecopy, of the amount of the draw and, in the case of each Lender, such Lender’s portion of such draw amount as calculated in accordance with its Revolving Commitment Ratio.
 
(d) The Borrowers hereby agree to immediately reimburse, jointly and severally, the Issuing Bank for amounts paid by the Issuing Bank in respect of draws under each Letter of Credit.  In order to facilitate such repayment, the Borrowers hereby irrevocably request the Lenders, and the Lenders hereby severally agree, on the terms and conditions of this Agreement (other than as provided in Article 2 with respect to the amounts of, the timing of requests for, and the repayment of Advances hereunder and in Article 4 with respect to conditions precedent to Advances hereunder), with respect to any drawing under a Letter of Credit, to make a Base Rate Advance on each day on which a draw is made under any Letter of Credit and in the amount of such draw, and to pay the proceeds of such Advance directly to the Issuing Bank to reimburse the Issuing Bank for the amount paid by it upon such draw.  Each Lender shall pay its share of such Base Rate Advance by paying its portion of such Advance to the Administrative Agent in accordance with Section 2.2(e) and its Revolving Commitment Ratio, without reduction for any set-off or counterclaim of any nature whatsoever and regardless of whether any Default exists or would be caused thereby.  The disbursement of funds in connection with a draw under a Letter of Credit pursuant to this Section shall be subject to the terms and conditions of Section 2.2(e).  The obligation of each Lender to make payments to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Issuing Bank, in accordance with this Section 2.15 shall be absolute and unconditional and no Lender shall be relieved of its obligations to make such payments by reason of noncompliance by any other Person with the terms of the Letter of Credit or for any other reason (other than the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Issuing Bank in paying such Letter of Credit, as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction).  The Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to the Issuing Bank the amounts so received from the other Lenders.  Any overdue amounts payable by the Lenders to the Issuing Bank in respect of a draw under any Letter of Credit shall bear interest, payable on demand, (x) for the first two (2) Business Days, at the Federal Funds Rate, and (y) thereafter, at the Base Rate.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, at the request of the Administrative Agent, the Swing Bank may, at its option and subject to the conditions set forth in Section 2.2(g) other than the condition that the applicable conditions precedent set forth in Article 4 be satisfied, make Swing Loans to reimburse the Issuing Bank for amounts drawn under Letters of Credit.
 
(e) The Borrowers agree that each Advance by the Lenders to reimburse the Issuing Bank for draws under any Letter of Credit, shall, for all purposes hereunder, unless and until converted into a Eurodollar Advance pursuant to Section 2.2(b)(ii), be deemed to be a Base Rate Advance under the Revolving Loan Commitments and shall be payable and bear interest in accordance with all other Base Rate Advances of Revolving Loans.
 
(f) The Borrowers agree that any action taken or omitted to be taken by the Issuing Bank in connection with any Letter of Credit, except for such actions or omissions as shall constitute gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of such Issuing Bank as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, shall be binding on the Borrowers as between the Borrowers and the Issuing Bank, and shall not result in any liability of the Issuing Bank to the Borrowers.  The obligation of the Borrowers to reimburse the Issuing Bank for a drawing under any Letter of Credit or the Lenders for Advances made by them to the Issuing Bank on account of draws made under the Letters of Credit shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement under all circumstances whatsoever (except if arising from the gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of such Issuing Bank as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction), including, without limitation, the following circumstances:
 
(i) Any lack of validity or enforceability of any Loan Document;
 
(ii) Any amendment or waiver of or consent to any departure from any or all of the Loan Documents;
 
(iii) Any improper use which may be made of any Letter of Credit or any improper acts or omissions of any beneficiary or transferee of any Letter of Credit in connection therewith;
 
(iv) The existence of any claim, set-off, defense or any right which any Borrower may have at any time against any beneficiary or any transferee of any Letter of Credit (or Persons for whom any such beneficiary or any such transferee may be acting), any Lender or any other Person, whether in connection with any Letter of Credit, any transaction contemplated by any Letter of Credit, this Agreement, or any other Loan Document, or any unrelated transaction;
 
(v) Any statement or any other documents presented under any Letter of Credit proving to be insufficient, forged, fraudulent or invalid in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect whatsoever;
 
(vi) The insolvency of any Person issuing any documents in connection with any Letter of Credit;
 
(vii) Any breach of any agreement between any Borrower and any beneficiary or transferee of any Letter of Credit;
 
(viii) Any irregularity in the transaction with respect to which any Letter of Credit is issued, including any fraud by the beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit;
 
(ix) Any errors, omissions, interruptions or delays in transmission or delivery of any messages, by mail, cable, telegraph, wireless or otherwise, whether or not they are in code;
 
(x) Any act, error, neglect or default, omission, insolvency or failure of business of any of the correspondents of the Issuing Bank;
 
(xi) Any other circumstances arising from causes beyond the control of the Issuing Bank;
 
(xii) Payment by the Issuing Bank under any Letter of Credit against presentation of a sight draft or a certificate which does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit, provided that such payment shall not have constituted gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Issuing Bank as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction; and
 
(xiii) Any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing.
 
(g) The Borrowers will indemnify and hold harmless each Indemnified Person from and against any and all claims, liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) which may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against such Indemnified Person in any way relating to or arising out of the issuance of a Letter of Credit, except that the Borrowers shall not be liable to an Indemnified Person for any portion of such claims, liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnified Person as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction.  This Section 2.15(g) shall survive termination of this Agreement.
 
(h) Each Lender shall be responsible (to the extent the Issuing Bank is not reimbursed by the Borrowers) for its pro rata share (based on such Lender’s Revolving Commitment Ratio) of any and all reasonable out-of-pocket costs, expenses (including reasonable legal fees) and disbursements which may be incurred or made by the Issuing Bank in connection with the collection of any amounts due under, the administration of, or the presentation or enforcement of any rights conferred by any Letter of Credit, any Borrower’s or any Guarantor’s obligations to reimburse draws thereunder or otherwise.  In the event the Borrowers shall fail to pay such expenses of the Issuing Bank within fifteen (15) days of demand for payment by the Issuing Bank, each Lender shall thereupon pay to the Issuing Bank its pro rata share (based on such Lender’s Revolving Commitment Ratio) of such expenses within ten (10) days from the date of the Issuing Bank’s notice to the Lenders of the Borrowers’ failure to pay; provided that if the Borrowers shall thereafter pay such expenses, the Issuing Bank will repay to each Lender the amounts received from such Lender hereunder.
 
(i) Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the Issuing Bank and the Borrowers when a Letter of Credit is issued and subject to Applicable Law, (i) each  Standby Letter of Credit shall be governed by the “International Standby Practices 1998” (ISP98) (or such later revision as may be published by the Institute of International Banking Law & Practice on any date any Letter of Credit may be issued) and (ii) each Commercial Letter of Credit shall be governed by the Uniform Customs and (iii) in both cases, to the extent not inconsistent therewith, the governing law of this Agreement set forth in Section 11.7.
 
Section 2.16 Bank Products.  Any Credit Party may request, and any Lender may, in its sole and absolute discretion, arrange for such Credit Party to obtain, from any Lender or any Affiliate of any Lender Bank Products, although no Credit Party is required to do so.  If any Bank Products are provided by an Affiliate of any Lender, the Credit Parties agree to indemnify and hold the Lender Group, or any of them, harmless from any and all costs and obligations now or hereafter incurred by the Lender Group, or any of them, which arise from any indemnity given by any Lender to any of its Affiliates, as applicable, related to such Bank Products; provided that nothing contained herein is intended to limit the Credit Parties’ rights with respect to any Lender or any of its Affiliates, as applicable, if any, which arise as a result of the execution of documents by and between the Credit Parties and such Person which relate to any Bank Products.  The agreement contained in this Section shall survive termination of this Agreement.  The Credit Parties acknowledge and agree that the obtaining of Bank Products from any Lender or its Affiliates (a) is in the sole and absolute discretion of any Lender or such Affiliates, and (b) is subject to all rules and regulations of any Lender or such Affiliates.
 
Section 2.17 Increase of Commitments; Additional Lenders.
 
(a) Increase of the Revolving Loan Commitments.
 
(i) So long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Administrative Borrower, on behalf of Borrowers, may request the right to effectuate increases in the Revolving Loan Commitments (any such increase, a “Commitment Increase”), in an aggregate amount of up to $50,000,000 for all such Commitment Increases (the “Commitment Increase Cap”), during the term of this Agreement by delivering a Notice of Requested Commitment Increase to the Administrative Agent, provided that, in each case: (A) each Commitment Increase shall be in minimum increments of $10,000,000; (B) the proposed Commitment Increase shall have been consented to in writing by the Administrative Agent, each Lender (if any) who is increasing its Revolving Loan Commitment and any other bank or financial institution acceptable to the Administrative Agent that has agreed to become a Lender in respect of all or a portion of the Commitment Increase (a “New Lender”); (C) the pricing and other terms applicable to the Commitment Increase shall be the same as those applicable to the existing Revolving Loan Commitments; (D) the proposed Commitment Increase, together with any prior Commitment Increase, shall not exceed the Commitment Increase Cap; (E) Availability, measured on a pro forma basis after giving effect to the Commitment Increase, for the five consecutive Business Days prior to the Commitment Increase is at least $20,000,000; and (F) the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio as of the end of the fiscal month most recently ended for which the Administrative Agent has received financial statements at the time of the Commitment Increase, for the period of the immediately preceding twelve (12) months, of not less than 1.00:1.00.  Each Notice of Requested Commitment Increase shall specify: (1) the amount of the proposed Commitment Increase and (2) the requested date of the proposed Commitment Increase (which shall be at least thirty (30) days from the date of delivery of the Notice of Requested Commitment Increase).  Each Notice of Requested Commitment Increase shall be binding on all Borrowers. Upon the effective date of any Commitment Increase, the Administrative Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent a certificate of the chief financial officer of the Administrative Agent certifying that no Default or Event of Default then exists or would be caused thereby and that the conditions set forth in clause (D), (E) and (F) are satisfied.  No Commitment Increase shall be effective until the Administrative Agent shall have received amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, commitments of Lenders or New Lenders in an aggregate amount equal to such Commitment Increase, agreements for each Lender or New Lender committing to such Commitment Increase (each, a “Lender Agreement”), any upfront fees to be paid to the Lenders committing to such Commitment Increase, and such opinion letters, Revolving Loan Notes and other agreements, documents and instruments requested by and reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion evidencing and setting forth the conditions of such Commitment Increase.
 
(ii) If the Administrative Agent approves a proposed Commitment Increase, the Administrative Agent shall deliver a copy of the Notice of Requested Commitment Increase relating thereto to each Lender.  No Lender (or any successor thereto) shall have any obligation to increase its Revolving Loan Commitment or its other obligations under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, and any decision by a Lender to increase its Revolving Loan Commitment shall be made in its sole discretion independently from any other Lender. If the Administrative Agent receives commitments from the Lenders or the New Lenders in excess of the amount of the proposed Commitment Increase, the Administrative Agent shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to reduce and reallocate (within the minimum and maximum amounts specified by each such Lender or New Lender in its notice to the Administrative Agent) the shares of such Commitment Increase of the Lenders or New Lenders willing to fund the proposed Commitment Increase so that the total committed shares of the proposed Commitment Increase equals the proposed Commitment Increase. The Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender or New Lender, as the case may be, whether its proposed share of the proposed Commitment Increase has been accepted and, if so, the amount of its share of such Commitment Increase, and such Lender shall thereafter execute and deliver a Lender Agreement with respect to its respective share of such Commitment Increase.
 
(iii) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, each Commitment Increase meeting the conditions set forth in Section 2.17(a)(i) shall not require the consent of any Lender other than those Lenders, if any, which have agreed to increase their Revolving Loan Commitments in connection with such Commitment Increase and shall not constitute an amendment, modification or waiver that is subject to Section 11.12 and shall be effective as of the later of (a) the date specified in the applicable Notice of Requested Commitment Increase and (b) the date upon which the foregoing conditions shall have been satisfied or waived by the Administrative Agent and the Lenders which have agreed to increase their Revolving Loan Commitments, or by the Required Lenders in accordance with Section 11.12 in the case of a waiver of an Event of Default, as applicable.
 
(b) Effect of Commitment Increase.  After giving effect to any Commitment Increase, the outstanding Revolving Loans may not be held pro rata in accordance with the new Revolving Loan Commitments.  In order to remedy the foregoing, on the effective date of each Commitment Increase, the Lenders (including any New Lenders) shall reallocate the Revolving Loans owed to them among themselves so that, after giving effect thereto, the Revolving Loans will be held by the Lenders (including any New Lenders) on a pro rata basis in accordance with their respective Revolving Commitment Ratios (after giving effect to such Commitment Increase).  Each Lender agrees to wire immediately available funds to the Administrative Agent in accordance with this Agreement as may be required by the Administrative Agent in connection with the foregoing, and to execute any documents reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent to effectuate such changes.  Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 11.5, the reallocations so made by each Lender whose Revolving Commitment Ratio has increased shall be deemed to be a purchase of a corresponding amount of the Revolving Loans of the Lender or Lenders whose Revolving Commitment Ratio have decreased and shall not be considered an assignment for purposes of Section 11.5.
 
Section 2.18 Taxes.
 
(a) Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of any Borrower or any other Credit Party hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be made free and clear of and without deduction or withholding for any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes; provided that if any Applicable Law requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment, then the applicable Withholding Agent shall make such deduction and timely pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax or Other Tax, then the sum payable by such Borrower or other Credit Party, as applicable, shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions and withholdings (including deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) the applicable Recipient shall receive an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made.
 
(b) In addition, without limiting the provisions of Section 2.18(a), the Borrowers shall timely pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law.
 
(c) The Borrowers shall indemnify each Recipient, within thirty (30) Business Days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes paid or payable by such Recipient (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) and any penalties, interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority.  A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Administrative Borrower by the applicable Recipient shall be conclusive, absent manifest error.
 
(d) As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes by any Borrower or any other Credit Party to a Governmental Authority, the Administrative Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent an original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
 
(e) Tax Forms.
 
(i)           Any Lender that is a US Person shall deliver to the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent, on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent), duly executed originals of IRS Form W-9 certifying, to the extent such Lender is legally entitled to do so, that such Lender is exempt from US federal backup withholding tax.
 
(ii)           Any Lender that is a Foreign Person and that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding tax under the Code or any treaty to which the United States is a party with respect to payments under this Agreement shall deliver to the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times prescribed by applicable law, such properly completed and executed documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Lender that is a Foreign Person shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, (w) on or prior to the date such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement, (x) on or prior to the date on which any such form or certification expires or becomes obsolete, (y) after the occurrence of any event requiring a change in the most recent form or certification previously delivered by it pursuant to this Section 2.18(e), and (z) from time to time upon the reasonable request by the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent, deliver to the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:
 
(A)           if such Lender is claiming eligibility for benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Loan Document, duly executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN, or any successor form thereto, establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, US federal withholding tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty, and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Loan Document, duly executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN, or any successor form thereto, establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, US federal withholding tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;
 
(B)           duly executed originals of IRS Form W-8ECI, or any successor form thereto, certifying that the payments received by such Lender are effectively connected with such Lender’s conduct of a trade or business in the United States;
 
(C)           if such Lender is claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 871(h) or Section 881(c) of the Code, duly executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN, or any successor form thereto, together with a certificate (a “US Tax Compliance Certificate”) upon which such Lender certifies that (1) such Lender is not a bank for purposes of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, or the obligation of the Borrowers hereunder is not, with respect to such Lender, a loan agreement entered into in the ordinary course of its trade or business, within the meaning of that Section, (2) such Lender is not a 10% shareholder of any Borrower within the meaning of Section 871(h)(3) or Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, (3) such Lender is not a controlled foreign corporation that is related to any Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code, and (4) the interest payments in question are not effectively connected with a US trade or business conducted by such Lender; or
 
(D)           if such Lender is not the beneficial owner (for example, a partnership or a participating Lender granting a typical participation), duly executed originals of IRS Form W-8IMY, or any successor form thereto, accompanied by IRS Form W-9, IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN, a US Tax Compliance Certificate, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable.
 
(iii)           Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered under this Section expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect and such Lender is not legally entitled to provide an updated form or certification, it shall promptly notify the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent of its inability to update such form or certification.
 
(f) If a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to US federal withholding tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by Applicable Law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Administrative Borrower or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment.
 
(g)           If a Recipient determines, in its sole discretion, that it has received a refund of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 2.18 or with respect to which the Borrowers have paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.18, such Recipient shall pay to the Borrowers an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by the Borrowers under this Section 2.18 with respect to such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses of such Recipient and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided that the Borrowers, upon the request of such Recipient, shall repay the amount paid over to the Borrowers (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to such Recipient in the event such Recipient is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.18(g), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this Section 2.18(g) the payment of which 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.
 
(h)           Each Lender agrees that, upon the occurrence of any event giving rise to the payment of any additional amount to such Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of such Lender pursuant to this Section 2.18, it will, if requested by the Administrative Borrower, use commercially reasonable efforts (subject to legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate another Applicable Lending Office for any Loan or Letter of Credit affected by such event; provided that (i) such designation would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to this Section 2.18 and (ii) such efforts are made on terms that, in the judgment of such Lender, cause such Lender and its Applicable Lending Office(s) to suffer no economic, legal or regulatory disadvantage; provided, further, that nothing in this Section 2.18(h) shall affect or postpone any of the Obligations of the Borrowers or the rights of such Lender pursuant to this Section 2.18.  The Borrowers agree to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation.
 
(i)           Nothing contained in this Section 2.18 shall require any member of the Lender Group to make available to the Borrowers any of its tax returns (or any other information) that it deems confidential or proprietary.
 
Section 2.19 Defaulting Lenders.
 
(a)           If a Lender becomes, and during the period it remains, a Defaulting Lender, the following provisions shall apply, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement:
 
(i)           the Participation Exposure of such Defaulting Lender will, subject to the limitation in the proviso below, automatically be reallocated (effective no later than one (1) Business Day after the Administrative Agent has actual knowledge that such Lender has become a Defaulting Lender) among the Non-Defaulting Lenders pro rata in accordance with their respective Revolving Loan Commitments (calculated as if the Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment was reduced to zero and each Non-Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment had been increased proportionately); provided that the sum of each Non-Defaulting Lender’s total Revolving Credit Exposure may not in any event exceed the Revolving Loan Commitment of such Non-Defaulting Lender as in effect at the time of such reallocation; and
 
(ii)           to the extent that any portion (the “unreallocated portion”) of the Participation Exposure of any Defaulting Lender cannot be reallocated pursuant to clause (i) above for any reason, the Borrowers will, not later than two (2) Business Days after demand by the Administrative Agent (at its own election or at the direction of the Issuing Bank or the Swing Bank), (x) Cash Collateralize the obligations of the Borrowers to the Issuing Bank, the Swing Bank or the Administrative Agent in respect of such Participation Exposure, as the case may be, in an amount at least equal to the aggregate amount of the unreallocated portion of the Participation Exposure of such Defaulting Lender, (y) prepay and/or Cash Collateralize in full the unreallocated portion thereof, or (z) make other arrangements satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank and the Swing Bank in their sole discretion to protect them against the risk of non-payment by such Defaulting Lender;
 
provided that neither any such reallocation nor any payment by a Non-Defaulting Lender pursuant thereto nor any such Cash Collateralization or reduction will constitute a waiver or release of any claim the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank, the Swing Bank or any other Lender may have against such Defaulting Lender or cause such Defaulting Lender to be a Non-Defaulting Lender.
 
(b)           If the Administrative Borrower, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank and the Swing Bank agree in writing in their discretion that any Defaulting Lender has ceased to be a Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice, and subject to any conditions set forth therein, the Participation Exposure of the other Lenders shall be readjusted to reflect the inclusion of such Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment, and such Lender will purchase at par such portion of outstanding Revolving Loans of the other Lenders and/or make such other adjustments as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Revolving Credit Exposure of the Lenders to be on a pro rata basis in accordance with their respective Revolving Loan Commitments, whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender and will be a Non-Defaulting Lender (and such Revolving Credit Exposure of each Lender will automatically be adjusted on a prospective basis to reflect the foregoing).  If any cash collateral has been posted with respect to any Participation Exposure of such Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent will promptly return such cash collateral to the Borrowers; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrowers while such Lender was a Defaulting Lender; provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Non-Defaulting Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from such Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender.
 
(c)           So long as any Lender is a Defaulting Lender, the Issuing Bank will not be required to issue, amend, extend, renew or increase any Letter of Credit, and the Swing Bank will not be required to fund any Swing Loans, as applicable, unless 100% of the related Participation Exposure after giving effect thereto is fully covered or eliminated by the following:
 
(i)           the Participation Exposure of such Defaulting Lender is reallocated to the Non-Defaulting Lenders as provided in Section 2.19(a)(i); and
 
(ii)           to the extent that any portion of the Participation Exposure of any Defaulting Lender cannot be reallocated pursuant to Section 2.19(a)(i) for any reason, the unreallocated portion is fully covered or eliminated by any combination of the following:
 
(A)           without limiting the provisions of Section 2.19(a)(ii), the Borrowers Cash Collateralize their reimbursement obligations in respect of such Letter of Credit or Swing Loan in an amount at least equal to the aggregate amount of the unreallocated obligations (contingent or otherwise) of such Defaulting Lender in respect of such Letter of Credit or Swing Loan or the Borrowers make other arrangements satisfactory to the Issuing Bank or the Swing Bank, as the case may be, in its sole discretion to protect it against the risk of non-payment by such Defaulting Lender; and
 
(B)           the Borrowers agree that the face amount of such requested Letter of Credit or the principal amount of such requested Swing Loan will be reduced by an amount equal to the unreallocated, non-Cash Collateralized portion thereof as to which such Defaulting Lender would otherwise be liable, in which case the obligations of the Non-Defaulting Lenders in respect of such Letter of Credit or Swing Loan will, subject to the limitation in the proviso below, be on a pro rata basis in accordance with the Revolving Loan Commitments of the Non-Defaulting Lenders, and the pro rata payment provisions of Section 2.10 will be deemed adjusted to reflect this provision; provided that the sum of each Non-Defaulting Lender’s total Revolving Credit Exposure may not in any event exceed the Revolving Loan Commitment of such Non-Defaulting Lender as in effect at the time of such reduction.
 
ARTICLE 3.                                
 

 
GUARANTY
 
Section 3.1 Guaranty.
 
(a) Each Borrower hereby guarantees to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Lender Group, the full and prompt payment of all Obligations of the other Borrower, including, without limitation, any interest therein (including, without limitation, interest, as provided in this Agreement, accruing after the filing of a petition initiating any Insolvency Proceedings, whether or not such interest accrues or is recoverable against any such Borrower after the filing of such petition for purposes of the Bankruptcy Code or is an allowed claim in such proceeding), plus reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses actually incurred by the Lender Group if the obligations represented by this Guaranty are collected by law, through an attorney-at-law, or under advice therefrom.  Each Guarantor hereby guarantees to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Lender Group, the full and prompt payment of all Obligations, including, without limitation, any interest therein (including, without limitation, interest, as provided in this Agreement, accruing after the filing of a petition initiating any Insolvency Proceedings, whether or not such interest accrues or is recoverable against the Borrowers after the filing of such petition for purposes of the Bankruptcy Code or is an allowed claim in such proceeding), plus reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses actually incurred by the Lender Group if the obligations represented by this Guaranty are collected by law, through an attorney-at-law, or under advice therefrom.
 
(b) Regardless of whether any proposed guarantor or any other Person shall become in any other way responsible to the Lender Group, or any of them, for or in respect of the Obligations or any part thereof, and regardless of whether or not any Person now or hereafter responsible to the Lender Group, or any of them, for the Obligations or any part thereof, whether under this Guaranty or otherwise, shall cease to be so liable, each Credit Party hereby declares and agrees that this Guaranty shall be a joint and several obligation, shall be a continuing guaranty and shall be operative and binding until the Obligations shall have been indefeasibly paid in full in cash (or in the case of Letter of Credit Obligations, secured through delivery of cash collateral in an amount equal to one hundred and five percent (105%) of the Letter of Credit Obligations) and the Revolving Loan Commitments shall have been terminated.
 
(c) Each Credit Party absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably waives any and all right to assert any defense (other than the defense of payment in cash in full, to the extent of its obligations hereunder, or a defense that such Credit Party’s liability is limited as provided in Section 3.1(g)), set-off, counterclaim or cross-claim of any nature whatsoever with respect to this Guaranty or the obligations of the Credit Parties under this Guaranty or the obligations of any other Person or party (including, without limitation, the Borrowers) relating to this Guaranty or the obligations of any of the Credit Parties under this Guaranty or otherwise with respect to the Obligations in any action or proceeding brought by the Administrative Agent or any other member of the Lender Group to collect the Obligations or any portion thereof, or to enforce the obligations of any of the Credit Parties under this Guaranty.
 
(d) The Lender Group, or any of them, may from time to time, without exonerating or releasing any Credit Party in any way under this Guaranty, (i) take such further or other security or securities for the Obligations or any part thereof as they may deem proper, or (ii) release, discharge, abandon or otherwise deal with or fail to deal with any Credit Party or the Obligations or any security or securities therefor or any part thereof now or hereafter held by the Lender Group, or any of them, or (iii) amend, modify, extend, accelerate or waive in any manner any of the provisions, terms, or conditions of the Loan Documents, all as they may consider expedient or appropriate in their sole discretion.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, or of Section 3.1(e), it is understood that the Lender Group, or any of them, may, without exonerating or releasing any Credit Party, give up, modify or abstain from perfecting or taking advantage of any security for the Obligations and accept or make any compositions or arrangements, and realize upon any security for the Obligations when, and in such manner, and with or without notice, as such Person may deem expedient.
 
(e) Each Credit Party acknowledges and agrees that no change in the nature or terms of the Obligations or any of the Loan Documents, or other agreements, instruments or contracts evidencing, related to or attendant with the Obligations (including any novation), shall discharge all or any part of the liabilities and obligations of such Credit Party pursuant to this Guaranty; it being the purpose and intent of the Credit Parties and the Lender Group that the covenants, agreements and all liabilities and obligations of each Credit Party hereunder are absolute, unconditional and irrevocable under any and all circumstances.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Credit Party agrees that until each and every one of the covenants and agreements of this Guaranty is fully performed, and without possibility of recourse, whether by operation of law or otherwise, such Credit Party’s undertakings hereunder shall not be released, in whole or in part, by any action or thing which might, but for this subsection of this Guaranty, be deemed a legal or equitable discharge of a surety or guarantor, or by reason of any waiver, omission of the Lender Group, or any of them, or their failure to proceed promptly or otherwise, or by reason of any action taken or omitted by the Lender Group, or any of them, whether or not such action or failure to act varies or increases the risk of, or affects the rights or remedies of, such Credit Party or by reason of any further dealings between the Borrowers, on the one hand, and any member of the Lender Group, on the other hand, or any other guarantor or surety, and such Credit Party hereby expressly waives and surrenders any defense to its liability hereunder, or any right of counterclaim or offset of any nature or description which it may have or may exist based upon, and shall be deemed to have consented to, any of the foregoing acts, omissions, things, agreements or waivers.
 
(f) The Lender Group, or any of them, may, without demand or notice of any kind upon or to any Credit Party, at any time or from time to time when any amount shall be due and payable hereunder by any Credit Party, if the Borrowers shall not have timely paid any of the Obligations (or in the case of Letter of Credit Obligations, secured through delivery of cash collateral in an amount equal to one hundred and five percent (105%) of the Letter of Credit Obligations), set-off and appropriate and apply to any portion of the Obligations hereby guaranteed, and in such order of application as the Administrative Agent may from time to time elect in accordance with this Agreement, any deposits, property, balances, credit accounts or moneys of any Credit Party in the possession of any member of the Lender Group or under their respective control for any purpose.  If and to the extent that any Credit Party makes any payment to the Administrative Agent or any other Person pursuant to or in respect of this Guaranty, any claim which such Credit Party may have against any Borrower by reason thereof shall be subject and subordinate to the prior payment in full of the Obligations to the satisfaction of the Lender Group.
 
(g) The creation or existence from time to time of Obligations in excess of the amount committed to or outstanding on the date of this Guaranty is hereby authorized, without notice to any Credit Party, and shall in no way impair or affect this Guaranty or the rights of the Lender Group herein. It is the intention of each Credit Party and the Administrative Agent that each Credit Party’s obligations hereunder (other than the obligations of the Administrative Borrower) shall be, but not in excess of, the Maximum Guaranteed Amount (as herein defined).  The “Maximum Guaranteed Amount” with respect to any such Credit Party, shall mean the maximum amount which could be paid by such Credit Party without rendering this Guaranty void or voidable as would otherwise be held or determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in any action or proceeding involving any state or Federal bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, fraudulent conveyance or other similar laws relating to the insolvency of debtors.
 
(h) Upon the bankruptcy or winding up or other distribution of assets of any Borrower, or of any surety or guarantor (other than the applicable Credit Party) for any Obligations of the Borrowers to the Lender Group, or any of them, the rights of the Administrative Agent against any Credit Party shall not be affected or impaired by the omission of any member of the Lender Group to prove its claim, or to prove the full claim, as appropriate, against the Borrowers, or any such other guarantor or surety, and the Administrative Agent may prove such claims as it sees fit and may refrain from proving any claim and in its discretion may value as it sees fit or refrain from valuing any security held by it without in any way releasing, reducing or otherwise affecting the liability to the Lender Group of each of the Credit Parties.
 
(i) Each Credit Party hereby absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably expressly waives, except to the extent such waiver would be expressly prohibited by Applicable Law, the following:  (i) notice of acceptance of this Guaranty, (ii) notice of the existence or creation of all or any of the Obligations, (iii) presentment, demand, notice of dishonor, protest and all other notices whatsoever (other than notices expressly required hereunder or under any other Loan Document to which any Credit Party is a party), (iv) all diligence in collection or protection of or realization upon the Obligations or any part thereof, any obligation hereunder, or any security for any of the foregoing, (v) all rights to enforce any remedy which the Lender Group, or any of them, may have against any Borrower, (vi) until the Obligations shall have been paid in full in cash (or in the case of a Letter of Credit Obligations, secured through delivery of cash collateral in an amount equal to one hundred and five percent (105%) of the Letter of Credit Obligations), all rights of subrogation, indemnification, contribution and reimbursement from any Borrower for amounts paid hereunder and any benefit of, or right to participate in, any collateral or security now or hereinafter held by the Lender Group, or any of them, in respect of the Obligations, and (vii) any and all rights under Official Code of Georgia Sections 10-7-23 and 10-7-24.  If a claim is ever made upon any member of the Lender Group for the repayment or recovery of any amount or amounts received by such Person in payment of any of the Obligations and such Person repays all or part of such amount by reason of (A) any judgment, decree or order of any court or administrative body having jurisdiction over such Person or any of its property, or (B) any settlement or compromise of any such claim effected by such Person with any such claimant, including any Borrower, then in such event each Credit Party agrees that any such judgment, decree, order, settlement or compromise shall be binding upon such Credit Party, notwithstanding any revocation hereof or the cancellation of any promissory note or other instrument evidencing any of the Obligations, and such Credit Party shall be and remain obligated to such Person hereunder for the amount so repaid or recovered to the same extent as if such amount had never originally been received by such Person.
 
(j) This Guaranty is a continuing guaranty of the Obligations and all liabilities to which it applies or may apply under the terms hereof and shall be conclusively presumed to have been created in reliance hereon.  No failure or delay by any member of the Lender Group in the exercise of any right, power, privilege or remedy shall operate as a waiver thereof, and no single or partial exercise by the Administrative Agent of any right or remedy shall preclude other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or remedy and no course of dealing between any Credit Party and any member of the Lender Group shall operate as a waiver thereof.  No action by any member of the Lender Group permitted hereunder shall in any way impair or affect this Guaranty.  For the purpose of this Guaranty, the Obligations shall include, without limitation, all Obligations of the Borrowers to the Lender Group, notwithstanding any right or power of any third party, individually or in the name of any Borrower and the Lender Group, or any of them, to assert any claim or defense as to the invalidity or unenforceability of any such Obligation, and no such claim or defense shall impair or affect the obligations of any Credit Party hereunder.
 
(k) This is a guaranty of payment and not of collection.  In the event the Administrative Agent makes a demand upon any Credit Party in accordance with the terms of this Guaranty, such Credit Party shall be held and bound to the Administrative Agent directly as debtor in respect of the payment of the amounts hereby guaranteed.  All costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, incurred by the Administrative Agent in obtaining performance of or collecting payments due under this Guaranty shall be deemed part of the Obligations guaranteed hereby.
 
(l) Each Subsidiary Guarantor and each Borrower (other than the Administrative Borrower) is a direct or indirect wholly owned Domestic Subsidiary of a Borrower.  Each Credit Party expressly represents and acknowledges that any financial accommodations by the Lender Group to the Borrowers, including, without limitation, the extension of credit, are and will be of direct interest, benefit and advantage to such Credit Party.
 
(m) The payment obligation of a Credit Party to any other Credit Party under any Applicable Law regarding contribution rights among co-obligors or otherwise shall be subordinate and subject in right of payment to the prior payment in full of the obligations of such Credit Party under the other provisions of this Guaranty, and such Credit Party shall not exercise any right or remedy with respect to such rights until payment and satisfaction in full of all such obligations.
 
Section 3.2 Special Provisions Applicable to Subsidiary Credit Parties.  Pursuant to Section 6.20 of this Agreement, any new Domestic Subsidiary of any Borrower is required to enter into this Agreement by executing and delivering to the Administrative Agent a Supplement to this Agreement, designating such Domestic Subsidiary as a Borrower or a Guarantor.  Upon the execution and delivery of a Supplement by such new Domestic Subsidiary, such Domestic Subsidiary shall become a Borrower or Guarantor, as so designated, and a Credit Party hereunder with the same force and effect as if originally named as a Borrower or Guarantor, as appropriate, and Credit Party herein.  The execution and delivery of any Supplement (or any other supplement to any Loan Document delivered in connection therewith) adding an additional Borrower or Guarantor as a party to this Agreement or any other applicable Loan Document shall not require the consent of any other party hereto.  The rights and obligations of each party hereunder shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding the addition of any new Guarantor hereunder.

(b) Upon the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default specified in Sections 9.1(g) or (h), such principal, interest, and other Obligations (other than any Obligations existing from time to time of any Credit Party to the Administrative Agent (or an Affiliate of the Administrative Agent) arising in connection with any Bank Products Documents) shall thereupon and concurrently therewith become due and payable, and the Revolving Loan Commitments and the Letter of Credit Commitment, shall forthwith terminate, all without any action by the Lender Group, or any of them and without presentment, demand, protest, or other notice of any kind, all of which are expressly waived, anything in this Agreement or in any other Loan Document to the contrary notwithstanding.
 
(c) The Administrative Agent may in its discretion (unless otherwise instructed by the Required Lenders) or shall at the direction of the Required Lenders exercise all of the post-default rights granted to the Lender Group, or any of them, under the Loan Documents or under Applicable Law.  The Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Lender Group, shall have the right to the appointment of a receiver for the Property of the Credit Parties, and the Credit Parties hereby consent to such rights and such appointment and hereby waive any objection the Credit Parties may have thereto or the right to have a bond or other security posted by the Lender Group, or any of them, in connection therewith.

ARTICLE 10.
 
THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT
 
Section 10.1 Appointment and Authorization.  Each member of the Lender Group hereby irrevocably appoints and authorizes, and hereby agrees that it will require any transferee of any of its interest in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, its Revolving Loan Commitment and its Revolving Credit Exposure irrevocably to appoint and authorize, the Administrative Agent to take such actions as its agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers hereunder and under the other Loan Documents as are delegated by the terms hereof and thereof, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto.  Without limiting the foregoing, each member of the Lender Group hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to execute and deliver each Loan Document to which the Administrative Agent is, or is required to be, a party.  Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its directors, officers, employees, or agents shall be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it hereunder or in connection herewith, except for its own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a final non-appealable order of a court of competent jurisdiction.
 
Section 10.2 Interest Holders.  The Administrative Agent may treat each Lender, or the Person designated in the last notice filed with the Administrative Agent under this Section 10.2, as the holder of all of the interests of such Lender in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, its Revolving Credit Exposure and its Revolving Loan Commitment until written notice of transfer, signed by such Lender (or the Person designated in the last notice filed with the Administrative Agent) and by the Person designated in such written notice of transfer, in form and substance satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, shall have been filed with the Administrative Agent.
 
Section 10.3 Consultation with Counsel.  The Administrative Agent may consult with legal counsel selected by it and shall not be liable to any Lender or the Issuing Bank for any action taken or suffered by it in good faith in reliance on the advice of such counsel.
 
Section 10.4 Documents.  The Administrative Agent shall not be under any duty to examine, inquire into, or pass upon the validity, effectiveness, or genuineness of this Agreement, any other Loan Document, or any instrument, document, or communication furnished pursuant hereto or in connection herewith, and the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to assume that they are valid, effective, and genuine, have been signed or sent by the proper parties, and are what they purport to be.
 
Section 10.5 Administrative Agent and Affiliates.  With respect to the Revolving Loan Commitments and Loans, the Administrative Agent shall have the same rights and powers hereunder as any other Lender, and the Administrative Agent and its Affiliates, as the case may be,  may accept deposits from, lend money to, and generally engage in any kind of business with the Credit Parties or any Affiliates of, or Persons doing business with, the Credit Parties, as if it were not the Administrative Agent or affiliated with the Administrative Agent and without any obligation to account therefor.  The Lenders and the Issuing Bank acknowledge that the Administrative Agent and its Affiliates have other lending and investment relationships with the Credit Parties and their Affiliates and in the future may enter into additional such relationships.
 
Section 10.6 Responsibility of the Administrative Agent.  Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained elsewhere in this Agreement or in any other Loan Document, the Administrative Agent shall not have any duties or responsibilities, except those expressly set forth herein, nor shall the Administrative Agent have or be deemed to have any fiduciary relationship with any other member of the Lender Group, and no implied covenants, functions, responsibilities, duties, obligations or liabilities shall be read into this Agreement or any other Loan Document or otherwise exist against the Administrative Agent.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing sentence, the use of the term “agent” in this Agreement with reference to the Administrative Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under agency doctrine of any Applicable Law.  Instead, such term is used merely as a matter of market custom, and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between independent contracting parties.  The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to assume that no Default exists unless it has actual knowledge, or has been notified by the any Credit Party, of such fact, or has been notified by a Lender that such Lender considers that a Default exists, and such Lender shall specify in detail the nature thereof in writing.  The Administrative Agent shall provide each Lender with copies of such documents received from any Credit Party as such Lender may reasonably request.
 
Section 10.7 Action by Administrative Agent.
 
(a) The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to use its discretion with respect to exercising or refraining from exercising any rights which may be vested in it by, and with respect to taking or refraining from taking any action or actions which it may be able to take under or in respect of, this Agreement, unless the Administrative Agent shall have been instructed by the Required Lenders to exercise or refrain from exercising such rights or to take or refrain from taking such action.  The Administrative Agent shall incur no liability under or in respect of this Agreement with respect to anything which it may do or refrain from doing in the reasonable exercise of its judgment or which may seem to it to be necessary or desirable in the circumstances.
 
(b) The Administrative Agent shall not be liable to the Lenders and the Issuing Bank, or any of them, in acting or refraining from acting under this Agreement or any other Loan Document in accordance with the instructions of the Required Lenders (or all Lenders if expressly required by Section 11.12), and any action taken or failure to act pursuant to such instructions shall be binding on all Lenders and the Issuing Bank.
 
Section 10.8 Notice of Default.  In the event that any member of the Lender Group shall acquire actual knowledge, or shall have been notified in writing, of any Default, such member of the Lender Group shall promptly notify the other members of the Lender Group, and the Administrative Agent shall take such action and assert such rights under this Agreement as the Required Lenders shall request in writing, and the Administrative Agent shall not be subject to any liability by reason of its acting pursuant to any such request.  If the Required Lenders shall fail to request the Administrative Agent to take action or to assert rights under this Agreement in respect of any Default after their receipt of the notice of any Default from a member of the Lender Group, or shall request inconsistent action with respect to such Default, the Administrative Agent may, but shall not be required to, take such action and assert such rights (other than rights under Article 9) as it deems in its discretion to be advisable for the protection of the Lender Group, except that, if the Required Lenders have instructed the Administrative Agent not to take such action or assert such right, in no event shall the Administrative Agent act contrary to such instructions.
 
Section 10.9 Responsibility Disclaimed.  The Administrative Agent shall not be under any liability or responsibility whatsoever as Administrative Agent:
 
(a) To any Credit Party or any other Person or entity as a consequence of any failure or delay in performance by or any breach by, any member of the Lender Group of any of its obligations under this Agreement;
 
(b) To any Lender Group, or any of them, as a consequence of any failure or delay in performance by, or any breach by, any Credit Party or any other obligor of any of its obligations under this Agreement or any other Loan Document; or
 
(c) To any Lender Group, or any of them, for any statements, representations, or warranties in this Agreement, or any other document contemplated by this Agreement or any information provided pursuant to this Agreement, any other Loan Document, or any other document contemplated by this Agreement, or for the validity, effectiveness, enforceability, or sufficiency of this Agreement, any other Loan Document, or any other document contemplated by this Agreement.
 
Section 10.10 Indemnification.  The Lenders agree to indemnify (to the extent not reimbursed by the Borrowers) and hold harmless the Administrative Agent and each of its Affiliates, employees, representatives, officers and directors (each an “Administrative Agent Indemnified Person”) pro rata in accordance with their Aggregate Commitment Ratios from and against any and all claims, liabilities, investigations, losses, damages, actions, demands, penalties, judgments, suits, investigations, costs, expenses (including fees and expenses of experts, agents, consultants and counsel) and disbursements, in each case, of any kind or nature (whether or not an Administrative Agent Indemnified Person is a party to any such action, suit or investigation) whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by, or asserted against an Administrative Agent Indemnified Person resulting from any breach or alleged breach by the Credit Parties of any representation or warranty made hereunder, or otherwise in any way relating to or arising out of the Revolving Loan Commitments, this Agreement, the other Loan Documents or any other document contemplated by this Agreement or any action taken or omitted by the Administrative Agent under this Agreement, any other Loan Document, or any other document contemplated by this Agreement (other than Bank Products Documents), the making, administration or enforcement of the Loan Documents and the Loans or any transaction contemplated hereby or any related matters unless, with respect to any of the above, such Administrative Agent Indemnified Person is determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction to have acted or failed to act with gross negligence or willful misconduct.  This Section 10.10 is for the benefit of each Administrative Agent Indemnified Person and shall not in any way limit the obligations of the Credit Parties under Section 6.18.  The provisions of this Section 10.10 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
 
Section 10.11 Credit Decision.  Each member of the Lender Group represents and warrants to each other member of the Lender Group that:
 
(a) In making its decision to enter into this Agreement and to make its Advances it has independently taken whatever steps it considers necessary to evaluate the financial condition and affairs of the Credit Parties and that it has made an independent credit judgment, and that it has not relied upon information provided by the Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates;
 
(b) So long as any portion of the Obligations remains outstanding, it will continue to make its own independent evaluation of the financial condition and affairs of the Credit Parties; and
 
(c) Except for notices, reports and other documents expressly herein required to be furnished to the Lenders by the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to provide any Lender with any credit or other information concerning the business, prospects, operations, property, financial and other condition or creditworthiness of the Credit Parties which may come into the possession of any of the Administrative Agent or any Affiliates of the Administrative Agent.
 
Section 10.12 Successor Administrative Agent.
 
(a)           Subject to the appointment and acceptance of a successor Administrative Agent as provided below, the Administrative Agent may resign at any time by giving written notice thereof to the Lenders and the Administrative Borrower.  Upon any such resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right to appoint a successor Administrative Agent (with the consent of the Administrative Borrower if no Event of Default then exists).  If no successor Administrative Agent shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders, and shall have accepted such appointment within thirty (30) days after the retiring Administrative Agent’s giving of notice of resignation, then the retiring Administrative Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Administrative Agent which shall be any Lender or a Person organized under the laws of the US, a State or any political subdivision thereof which has combined capital and reserves in excess of $250,000,000.  Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor Administrative Agent, such successor Administrative Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges, duties, and obligations of the retiring Administrative Agent, and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder.  After any retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation hereunder as Administrative Agent, the provisions of Article 10 shall continue in effect for its benefit in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as the Administrative Agent.
 
(b)           In addition to the foregoing, if a Lender becomes, and during the period it remains, a Defaulting Lender, and if any Default has arisen from a failure of the Borrowers to comply with Section 2.19(a), then the Issuing Bank and the Swing Bank may, upon prior written notice to the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent, resign as Issuing Bank or as Swing Bank, as the case may be, effective at the close of business Atlanta, Georgia time on a date specified in such notice (which date may not be less than five (5) Business Days after the date of such notice).
 
Section 10.13 Withholding Tax
 
             (a)           To the extent required by any applicable law, the Administrative Agent may withhold from any interest payment to any Lender an amount equivalent to any applicable withholding tax.  If the Internal Revenue Service or any authority of the United States or any other jurisdiction asserts a claim that the Administrative Agent did not properly withhold tax from amounts paid to or for the account of any Lender (because the appropriate form was not delivered or was not properly executed, or because such Lender failed to notify the Administrative Agent of a change in circumstances that rendered the exemption from, or reduction of, withholding tax ineffective, or for any other reason), such Lender shall indemnify the Administrative Agent (to the extent that the Administrative Agent has not already been reimbursed by the Borrowers and without limiting the obligation of the Borrowers to do so) fully for all amounts paid, directly or indirectly, by the Administrative Agent as tax or otherwise, including penalties and interest, together with all expenses incurred, including legal expenses, allocated staff costs and any out of pocket expenses.
 
(b)           Without duplication of any indemnity provided under Section 10.13(a), each Lender shall also indemnify the Administrative Agent, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender (to the extent that the Administrative Agent has not already been reimbursed by the Borrowers and without limiting the obligation of the Borrowers to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 11.5(d) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register and (iii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender, in each case, that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent in connection with any Loan Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority.  A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error.  Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this Section 10.13(b).
 
Section 10.14 Administrative Agent May File Proofs of Claim.  The Administrative Agent may file such proofs of claim and other papers or documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Administrative Agent (including any claim for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Administrative Agent, its agents, financial advisors and counsel), the Lenders and the Issuing Bank allowed in any judicial proceedings relative to any Credit Party, or any of their respective creditors or property, and shall be entitled and empowered to collect, receive and distribute any monies, securities or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and any custodian in any such judicial proceedings is hereby authorized by each Lender and the Issuing Bank to make such payments to the Administrative Agent and, in the event that the Administrative Agent shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Lenders and the Issuing Bank, to pay to the Administrative Agent any amount due to the Administrative Agent for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Administrative Agent, its agents, financial advisors and counsel, and any other amounts due the Administrative Agent under Section 11.2.  Nothing contained in the Loan Agreement or the Loan Documents shall be deemed to authorize the Administrative Agent to authorize or consent to or accept or adopt on behalf of any Lender or the Issuing Bank any plan of reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition affecting this Agreement, any Notes, the Letters of Credit or the rights of any holder thereof, or to authorize the Administrative Agent to vote in respect of the claim of any Lender or the Issuing Bank in any such proceeding.
 
Section 10.15 Collateral.  The Administrative Agent is hereby authorized to hold all Collateral pledged pursuant to any Loan Document and to act on behalf of the Lender Group, in its own capacity and through other agents appointed by it, under the Security Documents; provided that the Administrative Agent shall not agree to the release of any Collateral except in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.  The Lender Group acknowledges that the Loans, all Obligations with respect to Bank Products Documents and all interest, fees and expenses hereunder constitute one Funded Debt, secured by all of the Collateral.  The Administrative Agent hereby appoints each Lender and the Issuing Bank as its agent (and each Lender and the Issuing Bank hereby accepts such appointment) for the purpose of perfecting the Administrative Agent’s Liens in assets which, in accordance with the UCC, can be perfected by possession.  Should any Lender or the Issuing Bank obtain possession of any such Collateral, subject to the limitations set forth in the Control Account Agreements, promptly upon the Administrative Agent’s request therefor shall deliver such Collateral to the Administrative Agent or in accordance with the Administrative Agent’s instructions.
 
Section 10.16 Release of Collateral.
 
(a) Each Lender and the Issuing Bank hereby directs, in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the Administrative Agent to release any Lien held by the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Lender Group:
 
(i) against all of the Collateral, upon final and indefeasible payment in full of the Obligations and termination of the Commitments; or
 
(ii) against any part of the Collateral sold or disposed of by the Credit Parties if such sale or disposition is permitted by Section 8.7 or is otherwise consented to by the requisite Lenders for such release as set forth in Section 11.12, as certified to the Administrative Agent by the Administrative Borrower in a certificate of an Authorized Signatory.
 
(b) Each Lender and the Issuing Bank hereby directs the Administrative Agent to execute and deliver or file or authorize the filing of such termination and partial release statements and do such other things as are necessary to release Liens to be released pursuant to this Section 10.16 promptly upon the effectiveness of any such release.  Upon request by the Administrative Agent at any time, the Lenders and the Issuing Bank will confirm in writing the Administrative Agent’s authority to release particular types or items of Collateral pursuant to this Section 10.16.

Section 11.3 Waivers.  The rights and remedies of the Lender Group under this Agreement, the other Loan Documents and the Bank Products Documents shall be cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies which they would otherwise have.  No failure or delay by the Lender Group, or any of them, or the Required Lenders in exercising any right shall operate as a waiver of such right.  The Lender Group expressly reserves the right to require strict compliance with the terms of this Agreement in connection with any funding of a request for an Advance.  In the event the Lenders decide to fund a request for an Advance at a time when the Borrowers are not in strict compliance with the terms of this Agreement, such decision by the Lenders shall not be deemed to constitute an undertaking by the Lenders to fund any further requests for Advances or preclude the Lenders from exercising any rights available to the Lenders under the Loan Documents or at law or equity.  Any waiver or indulgence granted by the Lenders or by the Required Lenders shall not constitute a modification of this Agreement, except to the extent expressly provided in such waiver or indulgence, or constitute a course of dealing by the Lenders at variance with the terms of the Agreement such as to require further notice by the Lenders of the Lenders’ intent to require strict adherence to the terms of the Agreement in the future.  Any such actions shall not in any way affect the ability of the Lenders, in their discretion, to exercise any rights available to them under this Agreement or under any other agreement, whether or not the Lenders are party, relating to the Borrowers.
 
Section 11.4 Set-Off.  In addition to any rights now or hereafter granted under Applicable Law and not by way of limitation of any such rights, except to the extent limited by Applicable Law, at any time that an Event of Default exists, each member of the Lender Group and each subsequent holder of the Obligations is hereby authorized by the Credit Parties at any time or from time to time, without notice to the Credit Parties or to any other Person, any such notice being hereby expressly waived, to set-off and to appropriate and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, including, but not limited to, Funded Debt evidenced by certificates of deposit, in each case whether matured or unmatured, but not including any amounts held by any member of the Lender Group or any of its Affiliates in any escrow account) and any other Funded Debt at any time held or owing by any member of the Lender Group or any such holder to or for the credit or the account of any Credit Party, against and on account of the obligations and liabilities of the Credit Parties, to any member of the Lender Group or any such holder under this Agreement, any Notes, any other Loan Document and any Bank Products Documents, including, but not limited to, all claims of any nature or description arising out of or connected with this Agreement, any Notes, any other Loan Document or any Bank Products Document, irrespective of whether or not (a) the Lender Group shall have made any demand hereunder or (b) the Lender Group shall have declared the principal of and interest on the Loans and any Notes and other amounts due hereunder to be due and payable as permitted by Section 9.2 and although said obligations and liabilities, or any of them, shall be contingent or unmatured.  Any sums obtained by any member of the Lender Group or by any subsequent holder of the Obligations shall be subject to the application of payments provisions of Article 2.
 
Section 11.5 Assignments; Participations.
 
(a) The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, except that no Credit Party may assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of each Lender (and any attempted assignment or transfer by any Credit Party without such consent shall be null and void).  Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, shall be construed to confer upon any Person (other than the parties hereto, their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby and, to the extent expressly contemplated hereby, the Affiliates of the Administrative Agent) any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or by reason of this Agreement.
 
(b) Any Lender (and any Lender that is an Issuing Bank) may assign to one or more Eligible Assignees all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Revolving Loan Commitment and Revolving Credit Exposure and the Loans at the time owing to it and, if applicable, all or a portion of its portion of the Letter of Credit Commitment and excluding rights and obligations with respect to Bank Products Documents); provided that (i) except in the case of an assignment of the entire remaining amount of the assigning Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment and Revolving Credit Exposure or in the case of an assignment to a Lender or an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund with respect to a Lender, the aggregate amount of the Revolving Loan Commitment of the assigning Lender subject to each such assignment (determined as of the date the Assignment and Acceptance with respect to such assignment is delivered to the Administrative Agent), shall not be less than $4,000,000, unless each of the Administrative Agent and, so long as no Event of Default exists, the Administrative Borrower otherwise consents (each such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), and (ii) the parties to each assignment shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent an Assignment and Acceptance, together with a processing and recordation fee of $3,500 (unless such assignment is to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund), and the Eligible Assignee, if it shall not be a Lender, shall deliver to the Administrative Agent an Administrative Questionnaire.  Subject to acceptance and recording thereof by the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 11.5(c), from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Acceptance, the Eligible Assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Acceptance, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement, and the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Acceptance, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Acceptance covering all of the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.8(b), 2.9, 6.18, 12.3 and 12.5).  Any assignment or transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this Section 11.5(b) shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with this Section.
 
(c) The Administrative Agent, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of the Borrowers, shall maintain at the Administrative Agent’s Office a copy of each Assignment and Acceptance delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders, and the Revolving Loan Commitments and Revolving Credit Exposure of each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”).  The entries in the Register shall be conclusive, and the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders may treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement, notwithstanding notice to the contrary.  The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrowers and any Lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.
 
(d) Any Lender may, without the consent of, or notice to, the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent, sell participations to one or more banks or other entities (a “Participant”) in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and/or obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Revolving Loan Commitment and Revolving Credit Exposure); provided that (i) such 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 such obligations and (iii) the Borrowers and the Lender Group shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement.  Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which a Lender sells such a participation shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right to enforce this Agreement and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement; provided that such agreement or instrument may provide that such Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, modification or waiver described in Section 11.12(a)(i) that affects such Participant.  Subject to Section 11.5(e), the Borrowers agree that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.8(b) (provided that such Participant agrees to be subject to Section 2.8(b) as though it were a Lender), 2.9, 6.18, 6.19(c) and 12.3 to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to Section 11.5(b).  To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 11.4 as though it were a Lender (provided that such Participant agrees to be subject to Section 2.8(b) as though it were a Lender).
 
Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of the Borrowers, maintain a register in the United States on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each Participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under the Loan Documents (the “Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register to any Person (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant’s interest in any commitments, loans, letters of credit or other obligations under any Loan Document) except (i) to the Administrative Borrower and (ii) 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 such Lender shall treat each person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary.
 
(e) A Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Sections 2.8(b), 2.9, 6.18, 6.19(c) and Section 12.3 than the applicable Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such Participant, unless the sale of the participation to such Participant is made with the Administrative Borrower’s prior written consent.  A Participant that would be a Foreign Lender if it were a Lender shall not be entitled to the benefits of Section 2.8(b) unless the Administrative Borrower is notified of the participation sold to such Participant and such Participant agrees, for the benefit of the Borrowers, to comply with Section 2.8(b) as though it were a Lender.
 
(f) Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including, without limitation, (i) any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank and (ii) in the case of any Lender that is a Fund, any pledge or assignment of all or any portion of such Lender’s rights under this Agreement to any holders of obligations owed, or securities issued, by such Lender as security for such obligations or securities, or to any trustee for, or any other representative of, such holders, and this Section shall not apply to any such pledge or assignment of a security interest; provided that no such pledge or assignment of a security interest shall release a Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.
 
Section 11.6 Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, but all such separate counterparts shall together constitute but one and the same instrument.  In proving this Agreement or any other Loan Document in any judicial proceedings, it shall not be necessary to produce or account for more than one such counterpart signed by the party against whom such enforcement is sought.  Any signatures delivered by a party by facsimile transmission or by e-mail transmission shall be deemed an original signature hereto.
 
Section 11.7 Under Seal; Governing Law.  This Agreement and the other Loan Documents are intended to take effect as sealed instruments and shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of Georgia, without regard to the conflict of laws principles thereof, except to the extent otherwise provided in the Loan Documents.
 
Section 11.8 Severability.  Any provision of this Agreement which is prohibited or unenforceable shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions hereof in that jurisdiction or affecting the validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction.
 
Section 11.9 Headings.  Headings used in this Agreement are for convenience only and shall not be used in connection with the interpretation of any provision hereof.
 
Section 11.10 Source of Funds.  Notwithstanding the use by the Lenders of the Base Rate and the Eurodollar Rate as reference rates for the determination of interest on the Loans, the Lenders shall be under no obligation to obtain funds from any particular source in order to charge interest to the Borrowers at interest rates tied to such reference rates.
 
Section 11.11 Entire Agreement.  THIS WRITTEN AGREEMENT, TOGETHER WITH THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS, REPRESENTS THE FINAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES HERETO AND MAY NOT BE CONTRADICTED BY EVIDENCE OF PRIOR, CONTEMPORANEOUS OR SUBSEQUENT ORAL AGREEMENTS OF SUCH PARTIES.  THERE ARE NO UNWRITTEN ORAL AGREEMENTS BETWEEN THE PARTIES HERETO.  Each Credit Party represents and warrants to the Lender Group that it has read the provisions of this Section 11.11 and discussed the provisions of this Section 11.11 and the rest of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents with counsel for such Credit Party, and such Credit Party acknowledges and agrees that the Lender Group is expressly relying upon such representations and warranties of such Credit Party (as well as the other representations and warranties of such Credit Party set forth in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents) in entering into this Agreement.  For the avoidance of doubt, any indemnification provisions in any engagement letter or fee letter executed by the Administrative Borrower with any Lender or any of its Affiliates prior to the Agreement Date shall be superseded hereby with respect to any claims, losses or damages arising from and after the date hereof.
 
Section 11.12 Amendments and Waivers.
 
(a) Neither this Agreement, any other Loan Document nor any term hereof or thereof may be amended orally, nor may any provision hereof be waived orally but only by an instrument in writing signed by the Required Lenders, or in the case of Loan Documents executed by the Administrative Agent (and not the other members of the Lender Group), signed by the Administrative Agent and approved by the Required Lenders and, in the case of an amendment, also by the Borrowers, except that:  (i) the consent of each of the Lenders and, in the case of an amendment, the Borrowers, shall be required for (A) any sale or release of, or the subordination of the Administrative Agent’s security interest in, any material portion of the Collateral except in conjunction with sales, transfers or other dispositions of Collateral permitted hereunder, (B) except in conjunction with transactions permitted hereunder, any release of any guarantor of the Obligations, (C) any extensions, postponements or delays of the Maturity Date or the scheduled date of payment of interest or principal or fees, or any reduction of principal (without a corresponding payment with respect thereto), or reduction in the rate of interest or fees due to the Lenders hereunder or under any other Loan Documents, (D) any amendment of this Section 11.12, the definition of “Eligible Assignee” or the definition of “Required Lenders” or any other provision of the Loan Documents specifying the number or percentage of Lenders required to waive, amend or modify any rights thereunder or make any determination or grant any consent thereunder; (E) any amendment increasing the Revolving Loan Commitments (it being understood and agreed that a waiver of any Default or Event of Default or modification of any of the defined terms contained herein (other than those defined terms specifically addressed in this Section 11.12) shall not constitute a change in the terms of the Commitments of any Lender); (F) any amendment increasing the amounts or percentages set forth in the definition of “Borrowing Base” and the defined terms used therein; (G) any amendment to the definition of “Availability” and the defined terms used therein; and (H) any amendment to Section 2.11; (ii) the consent of the Administrative Agent, the Required Lenders and the Borrowers shall be required for any amendment to Section 2.1(e) or Article 10; (iii) the consent of the Issuing Bank, the Required Lenders and the Borrowers shall be required for any amendment to Section 2.1(b) or 2.15 or the definition of “Letter of Credit Commitment”; (iv) the consent of the Guarantors and the Required Lenders shall be required for any amendment to Article 3; (v) the consent of the Swing Bank, the Required Lenders and the Borrowers shall be required for any amendment to Section 2.1(c) or Section 2.2(g); (vi) the consent of the Administrative Agent only shall be required to amend Schedule I to reflect assignments of the Revolving Loan Commitments and Loans in accordance with this Agreement.  In addition to the required consents set forth above, if SunTrust Bank or any Affiliate thereof has entered into a Lender Group Hedge Agreement with any Credit Party and SunTrust Bank is no longer the Administrative Agent or a Lender, the consent of SunTrust Bank or such Affiliate shall be required for any amendment to Section 2.11 or the sale or release of, or the subordination of the Administrative Agent’s security interest in, all or substantially all of the Collateral except in conjunction with sales or transfers of Collateral permitted hereunder.  Any amendment, modification, waiver, consent, termination or release of any Bank Products Documents may be effected by the parties thereto without the consent of the Lender Group.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, no Defaulting Lender shall have any right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent hereunder, except that the Commitment of such Defaulting Lender may not be increased or extended, and amounts payable to such Defaulting Lender hereunder may not be permanently reduced, without the consent of such Defaulting Lender (other than reductions in fees and interest in which such reduction does not disproportionately affect such Defaulting Lender).  Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, this Agreement may be amended and restated without the consent of any Lender (but with the consent of the Administrative Agent) if, upon giving effect to such amendment and restatement, such Lender shall no longer be a party to this Agreement (as so amended and restated), the Commitments of such Lender shall have terminated (but such Lender shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 6.18, 11.2, 12.2, 12.3 and 12.5), and such Lender shall have no other commitment or other obligation hereunder and shall have been paid in full all principal, interest and other amounts owing to it or accrued for its account under this Agreement.
 
(b) Each Lender grants to the Administrative Agent the right to purchase all (but not less than all) of such Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment, its Revolving Credit Exposure and any Notes held by it and all of its rights and obligations hereunder and under the other Loan Documents at a price equal to the outstanding principal amount of the Loans payable to such Lender plus any accrued but unpaid interest on such Loans and accrued but unpaid commitment fees and letter of credit fees owing to such Lender, which right may be exercised by the Administrative Agent if such Lender refuses to execute any amendment, waiver or consent which requires the written consent of all of the Lenders and to which the Required Lenders, the Administrative Agent and the Borrowers have agreed.  Each Lender agrees that if the Administrative Agent exercises its option hereunder, it shall promptly execute and deliver an Assignment and Acceptance and other agreements and documentation necessary to effectuate such assignment.  The Administrative Agent may assign its purchase rights hereunder to any assignee if such assignment complies with the requirements of Section 11.5(b).
 
(c) If any fees are paid to the Lenders as consideration for amendments, waivers or consents with respect to this Agreement, at Administrative Agent’s election, such fees may be paid only to those Lenders that agree to such amendments, waivers or consents within the time specified for submission thereof.
 
Section 11.13 Other Relationships.  No relationship created hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall in any way affect the ability of any member of the Lender Group to enter into or maintain business relationships with the Borrowers, or any of its Affiliates, beyond the relationships specifically contemplated by this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
 
Section 11.14 Pronouns.  The pronouns used herein shall include, when appropriate, either gender and both singular and plural, and the grammatical construction of sentences shall conform thereto.

Section 11.16 Replacement of Lender.  In the event that a Replacement Event occurs and is continuing with respect to any Lender, the Administrative Borrower may designate another financial institution (such financial institution being herein called a “Replacement Lender”) reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent, and which is not a Borrower or an Affiliate of any Borrower, to assume such Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment hereunder, to purchase the Loans and participations of such Lender and such Lender’s rights hereunder and (if such Lender is the Issuing Bank) to issue Letters of Credit in substitution for all outstanding Letters of Credit issued by such Lender, without recourse to or representation or warranty by, or expense to, such Lender for a purchase price equal to the outstanding principal amount of the Loans payable to such Lender plus any accrued but unpaid interest on such Loans and accrued but unpaid commitment fees and letter of credit fees owing to such Lender plus amounts necessary to cash collateralize any Letters of Credit issued by such Lender, and upon such assumption, purchase and substitution, and subject to the execution and delivery to the Administrative Agent by the Replacement Lender of documentation satisfactory to the Administrative Agent (pursuant to which such Replacement Lender shall assume the obligations of such original Lender under this Agreement), the Replacement Lender shall succeed to the rights and obligations of such Lender hereunder and such Lender shall no longer be a party hereto or have any rights hereunder, provided that the obligations of the Borrowers to indemnify such Lender with respect to any event occurring or obligations arising before such replacement shall survive such replacement.  “Replacement Event” shall mean, with respect to any Lender, (a) that such Lender has become a Defaulting Lender, (b) the making of any claim by any Lender under Section 2.8(b), 12.3 or 12.5, unless the changing of the lending office by such Lender would obviate the need of such Lender to make future claims under such Sections or (c) the refusal of such Lender to consent to an amendment or wavier otherwise approved by the Required Lenders.
 
Section 11.17 Confidentiality.  No member of the Lender Group shall disclose any non-public confidential information regarding the Credit Parties (“Confidential Information”) to any other Person without the consent of the Administrative Borrower, other than (i) to such member of the Lender Group’s Affiliates and their officers, directors, employees, agents and advisors, to other members of the Lender Group and, as contemplated by Section 11.5, to actual or prospective assignees and participants, and then only on a confidential basis, (ii) as required by any law, rule or regulation or judicial process, (iii) to any rating agency when required by it, provided that, prior to any such disclosure, such rating agency shall undertake to preserve the confidentiality of any Confidential Information relating to the Credit Parties received by it from such member of the Lender Group, (iv) as requested or required by any state, federal or foreign authority or examiner regulating banks or banking and (v) in connection with the exercise of any remedy hereunder or under any other Loan Document or any suit, action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document or the enforcement of rights hereunder or thereunder.
 
Section 11.18 Revival and Reinstatement of Obligations.  If the incurrence or payment of the Obligations by any Borrower or any Guarantor, or the transfer to the Lender Group of any property, should for any reason subsequently be declared to be void or voidable under any state or federal law relating to creditors’ rights, including provisions of the Bankruptcy Code relating to fraudulent conveyances, preferences or other voidable or recoverable payments of money or transfers of property (collectively, a “Voidable Transfer”), and if the Lender Group, or any of them, is required to repay or restore, in whole or in part, any such Voidable Transfer, or elects to do so upon the reasonable advice of its counsel, then, as to any such Voidable Transfer, or the amount thereof that the Lender Group, or any of them, is required or elects to repay or restore, and as to all reasonable costs, expenses and attorneys fees of the Lender Group related thereto, the liability of the Borrowers or such Guarantor, as applicable, automatically shall be revived, reinstated and restored and shall exist as though such Voidable Transfer had never been made.
 
Section 11.19 Electronic Transmissions.
 
(a)           Authorization.  Subject to the provisions of this Section 11.19(a), each of the Administrative Agent, the Borrowers, the Lenders, the Issuing Bank and each of their Affiliates is authorized (but not required) to transmit, post or otherwise make or communicate, in its sole discretion, Electronic Transmissions in connection with any Loan Document and the transactions contemplated therein.  Each of the Borrowers and the other Credit Parties hereby acknowledges and agrees, and each of the Borrowers and the other Credit Parties shall cause each of their Subsidiaries to acknowledge and agree, that the use of Electronic Transmissions is not necessarily secure and that there are risks associated with such use, including risks of interception, disclosure and abuse and each indicates it assumes and accepts such risks by hereby authorizing the transmission of Electronic Transmissions.
 
(b) Separate Agreements.  All uses of an E-System shall be governed by and subject to, in addition to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, separate terms and conditions posted or referenced in such E-System and related contractual obligations executed by Credit Parties or the members of the Lender Group in connection with the use of such E-System.
 
(c) Limitation of Liability.  All E-Systems and Electronic Transmissions shall be provided “as is” and “as available”.  None of Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates warrants the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of any E-Systems or Electronic Transmission, and each disclaims all liability for errors or omissions therein.  No warranty of any kind is made by the Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates in connection with any E-Systems or Electronic Communication, including any warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement of third-party rights or freedom from viruses or other code defects.  Each of the Borrowers and the other Credit Parties agrees that the Administrative Agent has no responsibility for maintaining or providing any equipment, software, services or any testing required in connection with any Electronic Transmission or otherwise required for any E-System.
 
Section 11.20 Mitigation of Losses; Sunset Provisions.
 
(a) Designation of a Different Lending Office.  If any Lender request compensation under Section 12.5, or the Borrowers are required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 12.3, or if any Lender gives notice pursuant to Section 12.2, then such Lender shall (after having provided the applicable Borrower with prior written notice thereof) use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 12.3 or 12.5, as the case may be, in the future, or eliminate the need for the notice pursuant to Section 12.2, as applicable, and (ii) in each case, would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender in any material respect.  The Borrowers hereby agree to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.
 
(b) Sunset Provisions.  Promptly after any Lender or any Issuing Bank has determined that it will make a request for increased compensation pursuant to Sections 12.5, such Lender or Issuing Bank shall notify the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent thereof.  Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or Issuing Bank to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the Borrowers shall not be required to compensate a Lender or an Issuing Bank pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 180 days prior to the date that such Lender or Issuing Bank, as applicable, notifies the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent of the change giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided, further, that, if the change giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 180 day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.
 
Section 11.21 Reaffirmation of Liens and Perfection of Security Interest.  Each of the Credit Parties hereby acknowledges and reaffirms that, as of the Agreement Date, the Liens granted pursuant to the Security Documents to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Lender Group, are in full force and effect and shall continue in full force and effect during the term of this Agreement and any renewals or extensions hereof and shall continue to secure the Obligations, and that such Liens are properly perfected and are enforceable in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
 
ARTICLE 12.                                
 

 
YIELD PROTECTION
 
Section 12.1 Eurodollar Rate Basis Determination.  Notwithstanding anything contained herein which may be construed to the contrary, if with respect to any proposed Eurodollar Advance for any Eurodollar Advance Period, the Administrative Agent determines that deposits in Dollars (in the applicable amount) are not being offered to leading banks in the London interbank market for such Eurodollar Advance Period, the Administrative Agent shall forthwith give notice thereof to the Administrative Borrower and the Lenders, whereupon until the Administrative Agent notifies the Administrative Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such situation no longer exist, the obligations of the Lenders to make Eurodollar Advances shall be suspended.
 
Section 12.2 Illegality.  If any Change in Law shall make it unlawful or impossible for any Lender to make, maintain, or fund its Eurodollar Advances and such Lender shall so notify the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent shall forthwith give notice thereof to the other Lenders and the Administrative Borrower.  Before giving any notice to the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section, such Lender shall designate a different Applicable Lending Office if such designation will avoid the need for giving such notice and will not, in the judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender.  Upon receipt of such notice, notwithstanding anything contained in Article 2, the Borrowers shall repay in full the then outstanding principal amount of each affected Eurodollar Advance of such Lender, together with accrued interest thereon, either (i) on the last day of the then current Eurodollar Advance Period applicable to such Eurodollar Advance if such Lender may lawfully continue to maintain and fund such Eurodollar Advance to such day or (ii) immediately if such Lender may not lawfully continue to fund and maintain such Eurodollar Advance to such day.  Concurrently with repaying each affected Eurodollar Advance of such Lender, notwithstanding anything contained in Article 2, the Borrowers shall borrow a Base Rate Advance from such Lender, and such Lender shall make such Advance in an amount such that the outstanding principal amount of the Revolving Loans held by such Lender shall equal the outstanding principal amount of such Revolving Loans immediately prior to such repayment.
 
Section 12.3 Increased Costs.
 
(a) If any Change in Law after the Agreement Date shall:
 
(i) Subject any Lender to any tax, duty, or other charge with respect to its Eurodollar Advances or its obligation to make Eurodollar Advances, or change the basis of taxation of payments to any Lender of the principal of or interest on its Eurodollar Advances or in respect of any other amounts due under this Agreement in respect of its Eurodollar Advances or its obligation to make Eurodollar Advances (except for changes in the rate of tax on the overall net income of such Lender);
 
(ii) Impose, modify, or deem applicable any reserve (including, without limitation, any imposed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, but excluding any included in an applicable Eurodollar Reserve Percentage), special deposit, assessment, or other requirement or condition against assets of, deposits (other than as described in Section 12.5) with or for the account of, or commitments or credit extended by any Lender, or impose on any Lender or the eurodollar interbank borrowing market any other condition affecting its Eurodollar Advances or its obligation to make such Eurodollar Advances, and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender of making or maintaining any such Eurodollar Advances, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender under this Agreement or under any Revolving Loan Notes with respect thereto, and such increase is not given effect in the determination of the Eurodollar Rate;
 
(iii) Subject the Issuing Bank or any Lender to any tax, duty or other charge with respect to the obligation to issue Letters of Credit, maintain Letters of Credit or participate in Letters of Credit, or change the basis of taxation of payments to the Issuing Bank or any Lender in respect of amounts drawn under Letters of Credit or in respect of any other amounts due under this Agreement in respect of Letters of Credit or the obligation of the Issuing Bank to issue Letters of Credit or maintain Letters of Credit or the obligation of the Lenders to participate in Letters of Credit (except for changes in the rate of tax on the overall net income of the Issuing Bank or such Lender); or
 
(iv) Impose, modify, or deem applicable any reserve (including, without limitation, any imposed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System), special deposit, assessment, or other requirement or condition against assets of, deposits (other than as described in Section 12.5) with or for the account of, or commitments or credit extended by the Issuing Bank, or impose on the Issuing Bank or any Lender any other condition affecting the obligation to issue Letters of Credit, maintain Letters of Credit or participate in Letters of Credit, and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to the Issuing Bank or such Lender of issuing, maintaining or participating in any such Letters of Credit or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by the Issuing Bank or such Lender under this Agreement with respect thereto;
 
then promptly upon demand by such Lender or the Issuing Bank, the Borrowers agree to pay, without duplication of amounts due under Section 2.8(b), to such Lender or the Issuing Bank such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or the Issuing Bank for such increased costs.  Each Lender or the Issuing Bank will promptly notify the Administrative Borrower and the Administrative Agent of any event of which it has knowledge, occurring after the date hereof, which will entitle such Lender or the Issuing Bank to compensation pursuant to this Section 12.3 and will designate a different Applicable Lending Office if such designation will avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, such compensation and will not, in the sole judgment of such Lender or the Issuing Bank, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender or the Issuing Bank.
 
(b) A certificate of any Lender or the Issuing Bank claiming compensation under this Section 12.3 and setting forth the additional amount or amounts to be paid to it hereunder and calculations therefor shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.  In determining such amount, such Lender or the Issuing Bank may use any reasonable averaging and attribution methods.  If any Lender demands compensation under this Section, the Borrowers may at any time, upon at least five (5) Business Days’ prior notice to such Lender, prepay in full the then outstanding affected Eurodollar Advances of such Lender, together with accrued interest thereon to the date of prepayment, along with any reimbursement required under Section 2.9.  Concurrently with prepaying such Eurodollar Advances, the Borrowers shall borrow a Base Rate Advance, or a Eurodollar Advance not so affected, from such Lender, and such Lender shall make such Advance in an amount such that the outstanding principal amount of the Revolving Loans held by such Lender shall equal the outstanding principal amount of such Revolving Loans immediately prior to such prepayment.
 
Section 12.4 Effect On Other Advances.  If notice has been given pursuant to Sections 12.1, 12.2 or 12.3 suspending the obligation of any Lender to make any, or requiring Eurodollar Advances of any Lender to be repaid or prepaid, then, unless and until such Lender (or, in the case of Section 12.1, the Administrative Agent) notifies the Administrative Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such repayment no longer apply, all Advances which would otherwise be made by such Lender as to the Eurodollar Advances affected shall, at the option of the  Administrative Borrower, be made instead as Base Rate Advances.
 
Section 12.5 Capital Adequacy.  If, after the Agreement Date, any Lender or Issuing Bank (or any Affiliate of the foregoing) shall have reasonably determined that the adoption of any Applicable Law, governmental rule, regulation or order regarding the capital adequacy of banks or bank holding companies, or any change therein, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by such Lender or Issuing Bank (or any Affiliate of the foregoing) with any request or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) of any such Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency (but only if such adoption, change, request or directive occurs after the Agreement Date), has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s (or any Affiliate of the foregoing) capital as a consequence of such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s Revolving Loan Commitment or obligations hereunder to a level below that which it could have achieved but for such adoption, change or compliance (taking into consideration such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s (or any Affiliate of the foregoing) policies with respect to capital adequacy immediately before such adoption, change or compliance and assuming that such Lender’s or Issuing Bank’s (or any Affiliate of the foregoing) capital was fully utilized prior to such adoption, change or compliance), then, promptly upon demand by such Lender or Issuing Bank, the Borrowers shall immediately pay to such Lender or Issuing Bank such additional amounts as shall be sufficient to compensate such Lender or Issuing Bank for any such reduction actually suffered; provided that there shall be no duplication of amounts paid to a Lender pursuant to this sentence and Section 12.3.  A certificate of such Lender or Issuing Bank setting forth the amount to be paid to such Lender or Issuing Bank by the Borrowers as a result of any event referred to in this Section shall, absent manifest error, be conclusive.

Section 13.5 All Obligations to Constitute Joint and Several Obligations.
 
(a) All Obligations shall constitute joint and several obligations of the Borrowers and shall be secured by the Administrative Agent’s Lien upon all of the Collateral, and by all other Liens heretofore, now or at any time hereafter granted by each Borrower to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Lender Group, to the extent provided in the Loan Documents or Bank Product Documents under which such Lien arises.  Each Borrower expressly represents and acknowledges that it is part of a common enterprise with the other Borrower and that any financial accommodations by the Administrative Agent, and the other members of the Lender Group to any other Borrower hereunder and under the other Loan Documents and the Bank Product Documents are and will be of direct and indirect interest, benefit and advantage to all Borrowers.  Each Borrower acknowledges that any Request for Advance, Notice of Conversion/Continuation, Request for Issuance of Letter of Credit or other notice or request given by any Borrower (including the Administrative Borrower) to the Administrative Agent shall bind all Borrowers, and that any notice given by the Administrative Agent or any other member of the Lender Group to any Borrower shall be effective with respect to all Borrowers.  Each Borrower acknowledges and agrees that each Borrower shall be liable, on a joint and several basis, for all of the Loans and other Obligations, regardless of which Borrower actually may have received the proceeds of any of the Loans or other extensions of credit or have had Letters of Credit issued hereunder or the amount of such Loans received, Letters of Credit issued or the manner in which the Administrative Agent or any other member of the Lender Group accounts among the Borrowers for such Loans, Letters of Credit or other extensions of credit on its books and records, and further acknowledges and agrees that Loans and other extensions of credit to any Borrower inure to the mutual benefit of all of the Borrowers and that the Administrative Agent and the other members of the Lender Group are relying on the joint and several liability of the Borrowers in extending the Loans and other financial accommodations hereunder.  Each Borrower shall be entitled to subrogation and contribution rights from and against the other Borrower to the extent any Borrower is required to pay to any member of the Lender Group any amount in excess of the Loans advanced directly to, or other Obligations incurred directly by, such Borrower or as otherwise available under Applicable Law; provided that such subrogation and contribution rights are and shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 13.5.

(c) Nothing in this Section 13.5 shall affect any Borrower’s joint and several liability to the Lender Group for the entire amount of its Obligations.  Each Credit Party covenants and agrees that its right to receive any contribution hereunder from a Contributing Credit Party shall be subordinate and junior in right of payment to all Obligations of the Borrowers to the Lender Group hereunder.  No Credit Party will exercise any rights that it may acquire by way of subrogation hereunder or under any other Loan Document or any Bank Product Document or at law by any payment made hereunder or otherwise, nor shall any Credit Party seek or be entitled to seek any contribution or reimbursement from any other Credit Party in respect of payments made by such Credit Party hereunder or under any other Loan Document or under any Bank Product Document, until all amounts owing to the Lender Group on account of the Obligations are paid in full in cash (or, with respect to Letters of Credit, are either cash collateralized or supported by a letter of credit) and the Revolving Loan Commitments are terminated.  If any amounts shall be paid to any Credit Party on account of such subrogation or contribution rights at any time when all of the Obligations shall not have been paid in full, such amount shall be held by such Credit Party in trust for the Lender Group segregated from other funds of such Credit Party, and shall, forthwith upon receipt by such Credit Party, be turned over to the Administrative Agent in the exact form received by such Credit Party (duly endorsed by such Credit Party to the Administrative Agent, if required), to be applied against the Obligations, whether matured or unmatured, as provided for herein.
