PRELIMINARY STATEMENTS:

(1) The Borrower, the Existing Lenders, the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent and the other entities party thereto, entered into that certain Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of September 30, 2011 (as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified prior to the date hereof, the “Credit Agreement”);

(2) The Borrower requested to amend and restate the Credit Agreement in the form of the Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement attached as Annex A hereto (the “Amended Credit Agreement”);

(3) The amendments contemplated by the Amended Credit Agreement require the consent of all the Lender Parties pursuant to Section 10.1(b) and (f)(ii) of the Credit Agreement;

(4) The Consenting Lenders and the New Lenders are willing to amend the Credit Agreement in the form of the Amended Credit Agreement upon the terms and conditions set forth herein;

(5) Certain Existing Lenders have not approved the requested amendments and, pursuant to Section 4.9 of the Credit Agreement, the Borrower requires that each such non-consenting Lender assign and delegate all of its interests, rights and obligations under the Credit Agreement and the Loan Documents, including, without limitation, such non-consenting Lender’s Loans and Commitments, to the Consenting Lenders and the New Lenders that shall assume such obligations; and

(6) In accordance with Sections 10.1 and 10.11 of the Credit Agreement, the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Consenting Lenders, the New Lenders, the Borrower and the Subsidiary Guarantors have each agreed, subject to the terms and conditions stated below, to the transactions described herein;

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and in order to induce the parties hereto to enter into the transactions described herein and the lenders under the Amended Credit Agreement to extend credit and other financial accommodations to the Borrower pursuant to the Amended Credit Agreement, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, each of the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Consenting Lenders, the New Lenders, the Borrower and the Subsidiary Guarantors hereby agree as follows:

1


SECTION 2. Replacement of Non-Consenting Lenders. If any Existing Lender declines or fails to consent to this Restatement Agreement by returning an executed counterpart hereof to the Administrative Agent prior to the Consent Deadline (as defined in Section 5(a)(xi) below) and the condition to effectiveness set forth in Section 5(a) below is satisfied, then pursuant to and in compliance with the terms of Section 4.9 of the Credit Agreement, such Existing Lender shall be replaced and its Commitments and/or Loans and other Obligations purchased and assumed by either (x) a New Lender or (y) a Consenting Lender which is willing to increase its Commitments and/or Loans, in each case upon its execution and delivery of this Restatement Agreement (which will also be deemed to be its execution and delivery of a Lender Assignment Agreement substantially in the form of Exhibit D to the Amended Credit Agreement as an “Assignee” defined therein and thereunder, agreeing in such capacity to all the terms therein applicable to it), such that immediately after giving effect to this Restatement Agreement on the Restatement Effective Date (as defined in Section 5 below), the amounts of Commitments and Loans held by each New Lender and Consenting Lender are the amounts opposite such Lender as set forth in Schedule 1 hereto. If any transaction contemplated by this Section 2 shall contradict Section 4.9 or 10.11 of the Credit Agreement, the Consenting Lenders constituting the Required Lenders hereby consent to any such contradiction.

SECTION 3. Amendment and Restatement of the Credit Agreement. The Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, each Consenting Lender, each New Lender and the Borrower hereby agree that the Credit Agreement is, effective as of the Restatement Effective Date, hereby amended and restated in full as set forth in the form of the Amended Credit Agreement.

SECTION 4. Consent and Reaffirmation; No Novation; Effect of this Restatement Agreement. (a) The Borrower and each other Loan Party hereby consents to this Restatement Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby, and hereby (i) agrees that, notwithstanding the effectiveness of this Restatement Agreement or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, each of the Security Documents continue to be in full force and effect, (ii) affirms and confirms its guarantee (in the case of each of the Subsidiary Guarantors) of the Obligations and (in the case of each Obligor) the pledge of and/or grant of a security interest in those of its assets constituting collateral pursuant to the Security Documents to secure the Obligations, all as provided in the Loan Documents as originally executed (and, if applicable, as such Security Documents have been amended, restated, amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified prior to the date hereof), and (iii) acknowledges and agrees that such guarantee, pledge and/or grant continue in full force and effect in respect of, and to secure, the Obligations under the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents, as modified hereby. Neither this Restatement Agreement nor the effectiveness of the Amended Credit Agreement nor the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby shall extinguish the Obligations for the payment of money outstanding under the Credit Agreement or discharge or release the Lien or priority of any Loan Document or any other security therefor or any guarantee thereof, and the Liens and security interests existing immediately prior to the Restatement Effective Date in favor of the Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties securing payment of the Obligations are in all respects continuing and in full force and effect with respect to all Obligations. Nothing contained herein or in the Amended Credit Agreement shall be construed as a novation, or a payment and reborrowing, or a termination, of the Obligations outstanding under the Credit Agreement or instruments guaranteeing or securing the same, which shall remain in full force and effect, except as modified hereby (including by the Amended Credit Agreement).

(b) Except as expressly set forth herein, this Restatement Agreement shall not by implication or otherwise limit, impair, constitute a waiver of, or otherwise affect the rights and remedies of the Existing Lenders or the Agents under the Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document, and shall not alter, modify, amend or in any way affect any of the terms, conditions, obligations, covenants or agreements contained in the Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document, all of which are ratified and affirmed in all respects and shall continue in full force and effect.

After the Restatement Effective Date, as used in the Amended Credit Agreement, the terms “Agreement”, “this Agreement”, “herein”, “hereinafter”, “hereto”, “hereof” and words of similar import, shall, unless the context otherwise requires, refer to the Amended Credit Agreement and any reference to the Credit Agreement in any Loan Document shall mean the Credit Agreement as modified hereby.
