subsection 6.1 shall be prepared in accordance with GAAP as in effect at the time of such preparation (and delivered together with the reconciliation statements provided for in subsection 6.1(v)) except for those exceptions from GAAP that are called for by the requirements of those sections.  Calculations in connection with the definitions, covenants and other provisions of this Agreement shall utilize accounting principles and policies in conformity with those used to prepare the financial statements referred to in the first sentence of subsection 5.3.  For the purposes of this Agreement, “consolidated” with respect to any Person shall mean, unless expressly stated to be otherwise, such Person consolidated with its Restricted Subsidiaries and shall not include any Excluded Subsidiary; provided that the parties acknowledge that such definition of “consolidated” is not in accordance with GAAP. For the avoidance of doubt, any obligations of a Person under a lease (whether existing now or entered into in the future) that is not (or would not be) required to be classified and accounted for as a Capital Lease on a balance sheet of such Person under GAAP as in effect on the date hereof shall not be treated as Capital Lease as a result of (x) the adoption of changes in GAAP after such date or (y) changes in the application of GAAP after such date.
 
1.3           Other Definitional Provisions and Rules of Construction.
 
A.           Any of the terms defined herein may, unless the context otherwise requires, be used in the singular or the plural, depending on the reference.
 
B.           References to “Sections” and “subsections” shall be to Sections and subsections, respectively, of this Agreement unless otherwise specifically provided.
 
C.           The use in any of the Loan Documents of the word “include” or “including”, when following any general statement, term or matter, shall not be construed to limit such statement, term or matter to the specific items or matters set forth immediately following such word or to similar items or matters, whether or not nonlimiting language (such as “without limitation” or “but not limited to” or words of similar import) is used with reference thereto, but rather shall be deemed to refer to all other items or matters that fall within the broadest possible scope of such general statement, term or matter.
 
D.           References to a Potential Event of Default or Event of Default as “continuing” shall mean that such Potential Event of Default or Event of Default has not been either (i) remedied or (ii) waived in writing.

1.4           Exchange Rates.
 
Not later than 1:00p.m. (Macau SAR time) on each Recalculation Date, the Administrative Agent shall (i) determine the Exchange Rate as of such Recalculation Date with respect to Patacas and HK Dollars to be used for calculating the Dollar Equivalent and (ii) give notice thereof to the Lenders and the Borrower.  The Exchange Rate so determined shall become effective on the relevant Recalculation Date, shall remain effective until the next succeeding
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Recalculation Date, and shall for all purposes of this Agreement (other than any provision expressly requiring the use of a Restatement Date FX Rate, a Closing Date FX Rate or a current Exchange Rate) be the Exchange Rate employed in converting any amounts between Dollars and Patacas or HK Dollars, as the case may be.
 
For purposes of determining compliance under Section 7 with respect to any amount in Patacas or HK Dollars, as the case may be, such amount shall be deemed to equal the Dollar Equivalent thereof at the Exchange Rate in effect at the time of such incurrence.  Notwithstanding anything else in this Agreement, the maximum amount of Indebtedness, Liens, Investments and other basket amounts that the Company, the Borrower and the Restricted Subsidiaries may incur under Section 7 shall not be deemed to be exceeded, with respect to any outstanding Indebtedness, Liens, Investments and other basket amounts, solely as a result of fluctuations in the exchange rate of currencies.  When calculating capacity for the incurrence of additional Indebtedness, Liens, Investments and other basket amounts by the Company, the Borrower and the Restricted Subsidiaries under Section 7 the exchange rate of currencies shall be measured as of the date of calculation.
 
Section 2.  Amounts and Terms of Commitments and Loans.
 
2.1           Commitments; Making of Loans; the Register; Notes.
 
A.           Commitments.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each Lender hereby severally agrees to maintain or make the Loans described in this subsection 2.1.A.
 
(i)             Initial Term Loans.  The parties hereto acknowledge the making of the Initial Term Loans under the Existing Credit Agreement on the Closing Date.  As provided in the Amendment Agreement, the Initial Term Loans shall continue as outstanding under this Agreement in the form of Non-Extended Initial Term Loans in aggregate outstanding principal amounts on the Restatement Date equal to (x) USD482,060,882.05, (y) HKD2,587,627,067.49 and (z) MOP34,412,142.86 and Extended Initial Term Loans in aggregate outstanding principal amounts on the Restatement Date of (x) USD1,027,601,850.10, (y) HKD8,169,578,211.11 and (z) MOP2,458,185,355.36.  No amounts paid or prepaid with respect to Initial Term Loans may be reborrowed.
 
(ii)             Revolving Loans.  From time to time on any Business Day occurring on or after the Restatement Date but prior to the Revolving Loan Commitment Termination Date, each Revolving Loan Lender agrees that it will severally make loans (relative to such Lender, its “Restatement Date Revolving Loans”) as follows:
 
(a)           in the case of each Revolving Loan Dollar Lender, in an amount equal to such Lender’s RL Percentage of the aggregate amount of the borrowing of the Restatement Date Revolving Loans requested by the Borrower to be made on such day;
 
(b)           in the case of each Revolving Loan HK Dollar Lender, in an amount equal to such Lender’s RL Percentage of the aggregate amount of the borrowing of the Restatement Date Revolving Loans requested by the Borrower to be made on such day, in HK Dollars based on the Restatement Date FX Rates for the conversion of Dollars into HK Dollars; and
 
 
 
 

 
 
(c)           in the case of each Revolving Loan Pataca Lender, in an amount equal to such Lender’s RL Percentage of the aggregate amount of the borrowing of the Restatement Date Revolving Loans requested by the Borrower to be made on such day, in Patacas based on the Restatement Date FX Rates for the conversion of Dollars into Patacas.
 
On the terms and subject to the conditions hereof, the Borrower may from time to time borrow, prepay and reborrow Revolving Loans.  No Revolving Loan Lender shall be permitted or required to make any Revolving Loan if, after giving effect thereto, the aggregate outstanding principal amount of all Revolving Loans of such Revolving Loan Lender, together with such Lender’s RL Percentage of the Letter of Credit Usage, would exceed such Lender’s RL Percentage of the then existing Revolving Loan Commitment Amount and in no event shall the Total Utilization of Revolving Loan Commitments at any time exceed the Revolving Loan Commitments then in effect.  Each Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment shall expire on the Revolving Loan Commitment Termination Date and all Revolving Loans and all other amounts owed hereunder with respect to the Revolving Loans and the Revolving Loan Commitments shall be repaid in full no later than that date.  All Loans made or committed to be made under this subsection, collectively, the “Revolving Credit Facility”.
 
(iii)             Swing Line Loans.  At any time prior to the Revolving Loan Commitment Termination Date, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, Swing Line Lender hereby agrees to make loans (the “Swing Line Loans”) to the Borrower, in Dollars, HK Dollars or Patacas as requested by the Borrower, in the aggregate amount up to but not exceeding the Swing Line Sublimit; provided, that after giving effect to the making of any Swing Line Loan, in no event shall the Total Utilization of Revolving Loan Commitments exceed the Revolving Loan Commitments then in effect.  Amounts borrowed pursuant to this subsection 2.1A(iii) may be repaid and reborrowed during the period prior to the Revolving Loan Commitment Termination Date.  The Swing Line Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment shall expire on the Revolving Loan Commitment Termination Date and all Swing Line Loans and all other amounts owed hereunder with respect to the Swing Line Loans shall be paid in full no later than such date.
 
B.           Borrowing Mechanics.  Loans made on any Funding Date (other than Revolving Loans made pursuant to subsection 3.3B for the purpose of reimbursing any Issuing Lender for the amount of a drawing under a Letter of Credit issued by it, and Swing Line Loans which shall be governed by the provisions of subsection 2.10), shall be in an aggregate minimum amount of (x) $15,000,000 and integral multiples of $5,000,000 in excess of that amount in the case of Term Loans and (y) $1,000,000 and integral multiples of $500,000 in the case of Revolving Loans; it being understood that each amount set forth in the foregoing clauses (x) and (y) shall apply to the requested aggregate amount of all Term Loans or Revolving Loans, as applicable, to be made on such Funding Date (calculated using the Dollar Equivalent (based on the applicable Restatement Date FX Rates) in the case of Loans denominated in HK Dollars and Patacas).
 
Whenever the Borrower desires that Lenders make Term Loans, the Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent a Borrowing Notice with respect to such Term Loans.  Each such Borrowing Notice must be received by the Administrative Agent prior to 11:00 a.m., Macau SAR time, at least five Business Days prior to the requested Funding Date (or such shorter
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
period acceptable to the Administrative Agent) and must specify (i) the amount of Term Loans to be borrowed, (ii) the requested Funding Date, (iii) whether such Term Loans that are denominated in Dollars shall be Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Rate Loans and (iv) in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans and HIBOR Rate Loans, the length of the initial Interest Period therefor.  Each relevant Lender will make the amount of its share of each borrowing as is required hereunder available to the Administrative Agent in immediately available Dollars, Patacas or HK Dollars, as applicable.
 
Whenever the Borrower desires that Lenders make Revolving Loans (other than Revolving Loans made pursuant to subsection 3.3B for the purpose of reimbursing any Issuing Lender for the amount of a drawing under a Letter of Credit issued by it, and Swing Line Loans which shall be governed by the provisions of subsection 2.10), it shall deliver to the Administrative Agent a Borrowing Notice no later than 11:00a.m. Macau SAR time at least five Business Days (or, on any day prior to the 60th day following the Restatement Date, in connection with a voluntary prepayment of Non-Extended Initial Term Loans, two Business Days) in advance of the proposed Funding Date.  The Borrowing Notice shall specify (i) the proposed Funding Date (which shall be a Business Day), (ii) the amount of Revolving Loans requested, (iii) whether such Revolving Loans that are denominated in Dollars shall be Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Rate Loans, and (iv) in the case of any Loans requested to be made as Eurodollar Rate Loans and in the case of the HIBOR Rate Loans, the initial Interest Period requested therefor.  Each relevant Lender will make the amount of its share of each borrowing as is required pursuant to and subject to the applicable requirements of this Section 2 available to the Administrative Agent in immediately available Dollars, Patacas or HK Dollars, as applicable. The Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent prior to the funding of any such Revolving Loans in the event that any of the matters to which the Borrower is required to certify in the applicable Borrowing Notice is no longer true and correct as of the applicable Funding Date, and the acceptance by the Borrower of the proceeds of any such Revolving Loans shall constitute a recertification by the Borrower, as of the applicable Funding Date, as to the matters to which the Borrower is required to certify in the applicable Borrowing Notice.
 
Except as otherwise provided in subsections 2.6B, 2.6C and 2.6G, a Borrowing Notice for a Eurodollar Rate Loan or a HIBOR Rate Loan shall be irrevocable on and after the related Interest Rate Determination Date, and the Borrower shall be bound to make a borrowing in accordance therewith; provided that in the case of the initial borrowing on the Restatement Date, the Borrower may revoke such notice if any condition set forth in subsection 8 of the Amendment Agreement will not, in the Borrower’s judgment, be satisfied or waived on or prior to the date on which the Lenders would fund such borrowing, and the Borrower shall pay any breakage and other costs incurred in connection with any such revocation in accordance with subsection 2.6D.
 
C.           Lending of Funds.  All Loans under this Agreement shall be made by the Lenders simultaneously and proportionately to their respective Pro Rata Shares, it being understood that no Lender shall be responsible for any default by any other Lender in that other Lender’s obligation to make a Loan requested hereunder nor shall the Commitment of any Lender to make the particular type of Loan requested be increased or decreased as a result of a default by any other Lender in that other Lender’s obligation to make a Loan requested hereunder.  Promptly after receipt by the Administrative Agent of a Borrowing Notice pursuant to subsection 2.1B, the
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender of the proposed borrowing.  Each applicable Lender shall make the amount of its Loan available to the Administrative Agent not later than 11:00a.m. (Macau SAR time) on the applicable Funding Date (or, for purposes of the initial funding on the Restatement Date only, such other time agreed to by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower and notified in writing to the Revolving Loan Lenders), in same day funds in Dollars, Patacas or HK Dollars, as applicable, by wire transfer (together with the applicable SWIFT confirmation) at the applicable Payment and Funding Office, and the Administrative Agent shall make such funds in the case of Term Loans and Revolving Loans, available no later than 1:00p.m. (Macau SAR time) on the applicable Funding Date (or, for purposes of the initial funding on the Restatement Date only, such other time agreed to by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower and notified in writing to the Revolving Loan Lenders) by depositing such Term Loans and Revolving Loans, to the account or accounts as directed by the Borrower.
 
Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified by any Lender prior to the Funding Date for any Loans that such Lender does not intend to make available to the Administrative Agent the amount of such Lender’s Loan requested on such Funding Date, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such amount available to the Administrative Agent on such Funding Date and the Administrative Agent may, in its sole discretion, but shall not be obligated to, make available to the Borrower a corresponding amount on such Funding Date.  If such corresponding amount is not in fact made available to the Administrative Agent by such Lender, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover such corresponding amount on demand from such Lender together with interest thereon, for each day from such Funding Date until the date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent, at the customary rate set by the Administrative Agent for the correction of errors among banks for three Business Days and thereafter at the Base Rate.  If such Lender does not pay such corresponding amount forthwith upon Administrative Agent’s demand therefor, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Borrower and the Borrower shall immediately pay such corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent together with interest thereon, for each day from such Funding Date until the date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent, at the rate payable under this Agreement for Base Rate Loans.  Nothing in this subsection 2.1C shall be deemed to relieve any Lender from its obligation to fulfill its Commitments hereunder or to prejudice any rights that the Borrower may have against any Lender as a result of any default by such Lender hereunder.
 
D.           The Register.
 
(i)             The Administrative Agent (or its agent or sub-agent appointed by it) shall maintain, as agent for the Borrower, at its address referred to in subsection 10.9, a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of Lenders and the Commitments and Loans of each Lender from time to time (the “Register”).  The Register, as in effect at the close of business on the preceding Business Day, shall be available for inspection by the Borrower or any Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.
 
(ii)             The Administrative Agent shall record, or shall cause to be recorded, in the Register the Commitment and the Loans (in accordance with the provisions of subsection 10.1, and, for any Loans or Commitments denominated in HK Dollars or Patacas, including the Dollar Equivalent amount of such Loans and Commitments calculated using the
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Restatement Date FX Rate or the Closing Date FX Rate, as applicable) from time to time of each Lender, and each repayment or prepayment in respect of the principal amount of the Loans of each Lender (and any cancellations of Term Loans pursuant to and in accordance with the terms and conditions of subsection 10.1I).  Any such recordation shall be conclusive and binding on the Borrower and each Lender, absent manifest error; provided that failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such recordation, shall not affect any Lender’s Commitments or the Obligations of any Loan Party in respect of any applicable Loans.
 
(iii)             Each Lender shall record on its internal records (including the Notes held by such Lender) the amount of each Loan made by it and each payment in respect thereof.  Any such recordation shall be conclusive and binding on the Borrower, absent manifest error; provided that failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such recordation, shall not affect any Lender’s Commitments or the Obligations of any Loan Party in respect of any applicable Loans; and provided, further that in the event of any inconsistency between the Register and any Lender’s records, the recordations in the Register shall govern.
 
(iv)             The Administrative Agent and Lenders shall deem and treat the Persons listed as Lenders in the Register as the holders and owners of the corresponding Commitments and Loans listed therein for all purposes hereof, and no assignment or transfer of any such Commitment or Loan shall be effective, in each case unless and until an Assignment Agreement effecting the assignment or transfer thereof shall have been accepted by the Administrative Agent and recorded in the Register as provided in subsections 10.1B(ii) or 10.1I(vi), as applicable.  Prior to such recordation, all amounts owed with respect to the applicable Commitment or Loan shall be owed to the Lender listed in the Register as the owner thereof, and any request, authority or consent of any Person who, at the time of making such request or giving such authority or consent, is listed in the Register as a Lender shall be conclusive and binding on any subsequent holder, assignee or transferee of the corresponding Commitments or Loans.
 
E.           Notes.  The Borrower agrees that, upon request to the Administrative Agent by any Lender, the Borrower will execute and deliver to such Lender a Note evidencing the Loans made by, and payable to the order of, such Lender in a maximum principal amount equal to such Lender’s Percentage of the original applicable Commitment.  The Borrower hereby irrevocably authorizes each Lender to make (or cause to be made) appropriate notations on the grid attached to such Lender’s Note (or on any continuation of such grid), which notations, if made, shall evidence, inter alia, the date of, the outstanding principal amount of, and the interest rate and Interest Period applicable to the Loans evidenced thereby.  Such notations shall, to the extent not inconsistent with notations made by the Administrative Agent in the Register, be conclusive and binding on each obligor absent manifest error; provided, however, that the failure of any Lender to make any such notations shall not limit or otherwise affect any Obligations of any Loan Party.
 
2.2           Interest on the Loans.
 
A.           Rate of Interest.  Subject to the provisions of subsections 2.6 and 2.7, each Loan shall bear interest on the unpaid principal amount thereof from the date made through maturity (whether by acceleration or otherwise) at a rate determined by reference to (i) in the case of Revolving Loans (but not including Swing Line Loans) or Term Loans denominated in Dollars, the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate or the Base Rate, or (ii) in the case of Revolving Loans (but not
 
 
 
 

 
 
including Swing Line Loans) or Term Loans denominated in Patacas or HK Dollars, the HIBOR Rate.  The applicable basis for determining the rate of interest with respect to any Loan shall be selected by the Borrower initially at the time a Borrowing Notice is given with respect to such Loan pursuant to subsection 2.1B, and the basis for determining the interest rate with respect to any Loan may be changed from time to time pursuant to subsection 2.2D.  If on any day a Loan is outstanding with respect to which notice has not been delivered to the Administrative Agent in accordance with the terms of this Agreement specifying the applicable basis for determining the rate of interest, then for that day that Loan shall bear interest determined by reference to the Base Rate.  Subject to the provisions of subsections 2.2E, 2.6G and 2.7, the Loans shall bear interest at a rate per annum as follows:
 
(a)           if a Base Rate Loan, then from the date of funding of such Loan at the sum of the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin for such Loans; or
 
(b)           if a Eurodollar Rate Loan, then from the date of funding of such Loan at the sum of the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate plus the Applicable Margin for such Loans; or
 
(c)           if a HIBOR Rate Loan, then from the date of funding of such Loan at the sum of the HIBOR Rate plus the Applicable Margin for such Loans; or
 
(d)           if a Swing Line Loan, then from the date of funding of such Loan at the sum of either (i) in the case of Swing Line Loans denominated in Dollars, the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate for an Interest Period of one month or (ii) in the case of Swing Line Loans denominated in HK Dollars or Patacas, the HIBOR Rate for an Interest Period of one month, in each case plus the Applicable Margin for Revolving Loans.
 
All Eurodollar Rate Loans and HIBOR Rate Loans shall bear interest from and including the first day of the applicable Interest Period to (but not including) the last day of such Interest Period at the interest rate determined as applicable to such Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan.
 
B.           Interest Periods.  In connection with each Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan, the Borrower may, pursuant to the applicable Borrowing Notice or Conversion/Continuation Notice, as the case may be, select an interest period (each an “Interest Period”) to be applicable to such Loan, which Interest Period shall be, at the Borrower’s option, either a one, two, three or six month period (or, with the consent of all relevant Lenders, nine or twelve months, or a period of less than one month if all relevant Lenders consent to such period); provided that:
 
(i)             the initial Interest Period for any Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan shall commence on the Funding Date in respect of such Loan, in the case of a Loan initially made as a Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan, or on the Business Day specified in the applicable Conversion/Continuation Notice, in the case of a Loan converted to a Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan;
 
(ii)             in the case of immediately successive Interest Periods applicable to a Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan continued as such pursuant to a Conversion/Continuation Notice, each successive Interest Period shall commence on the day on which the next preceding Interest Period expires;
 
 
 
 

 
 
(iii)             if an Interest Period would otherwise expire on a day that is not a Business Day, such Interest Period shall expire on the next succeeding Business Day; provided that, if any Interest Period would otherwise expire on a day that is not a Business Day but is a day of the month after which no further Business Day occurs in such month, such Interest Period shall expire on the next preceding Business Day;
 
(iv)            any Interest Period that begins on the last Business Day of a calendar month (or on a day for which there is no numerically corresponding day in the calendar month at the end of such Interest Period) shall, subject to subsection 2.2B(v), end on the last Business Day of a calendar month;
 
(v)              no Interest Period with respect to any portion of the Loans shall extend beyond the Maturity Date for such Loans;
 
(vi)             no Interest Period shall extend beyond a date on which the Borrower is required to make a scheduled payment of principal of the Loans unless the sum of (a) the aggregate principal amount of Loans that are Base Rate Loans plus (b) the aggregate principal amount of Loans that are Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans with Interest Periods expiring on or before such date plus (c) the excess of the Commitments then in effect over the aggregate principal amount of the Loans then outstanding, equals or exceeds the principal amount required to be paid on the Loans or the permanent reduction of the Commitments that is scheduled to occur on such date;
 
(vii)            there shall be no more than 12 Interest Periods outstanding at any time;
 
(viii)           in the event the Borrower fails to specify an Interest Period for any Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan in the applicable Borrowing Notice or Conversion/Continuation Notice, the Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month; and
 
(ix)             notwithstanding the above, for any Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan made on a day that is not the last Business Day of a calendar month, the Borrower may select an Interest Period that shall commence on the Funding Date in respect of such Loan and expire on the last Business Day of such calendar month and thereafter revert to the Interest Period selected in compliance with the other provisions of this subsection 2.2B, including, without limitation, subsection 2.2B(v).
 
C.           Interest Payments.  Subject to the provisions of subsection 2.2E, interest on each Loan shall be payable in arrears (in the same currency as such Loan made to the Borrower) on each Interest Payment Date with respect to such Loan, shall be payable in arrears upon any prepayment of that Loan, whether voluntary or mandatory, to the extent accrued on the amount being prepaid, and shall be payable in arrears at maturity of the Loans, including final maturity of the Loans.
 
D.           Conversion or Continuation.  Subject to the provisions of subsection 2.6, the Borrower shall have the option (i) to convert at any time all or any part of its outstanding Loans equal to $5,000,000 (or $1,000,000 in the case of Revolving Loans) and integral multiples of $1,000,000 in excess of that amount from Loans bearing interest at a rate determined by
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
reference to one basis to Loans bearing interest at a rate determined by reference to an alternative basis or (ii) upon the expiration of any Interest Period applicable to a Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan, to continue all or any portion of such Loan equal to $3,000,000 and integral multiples of $1,000,000 in excess of that amount as a Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan, it being understood that each amount set forth in the foregoing clauses (i) and (ii) shall apply to the requested aggregate amount of such conversion or continuation, as applicable, to be so converted or continued (calculated using the Dollar Equivalent (based on the applicable Restatement Date FX Rates or Closing Date FX Rates, as applicable) in the case of Loans denominated in HK Dollars and Patacas); and that in connection with a conversion or continuation of a Loan denominated in HK Dollars or Patacas which originally met the requirements of clause (i) or (ii) but no longer does solely due to fluctuation in exchange rates, such Loan shall be deemed to satisfy the requirements of clause (i) or (ii) as applicable. For the avoidance of doubt, a Eurodollar Rate Loan may be converted into a Base Rate Loan prior to the expiration date of an Interest Period applicable thereto; provided that the Borrower shall pay any breakage and other costs incurred in connection with any such conversion in accordance with subsection 2.6D.
 
The Borrower shall deliver a Conversion/Continuation Notice to the Administrative Agent no later than 11:00a.m. (Macau SAR time) at least one Business Day in advance of the proposed conversion date (in the case of a conversion to a Base Rate Loan) and at least five Business Days in advance of the proposed conversion/continuation date (in the case of a conversion to a Eurodollar Rate Loan, or a continuation of a Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan).  A Conversion/Continuation Notice shall specify (i) the proposed conversion/continuation date (which shall be a Business Day), (ii) the amount and type of the Loan to be converted/continued, (iii) the nature of the proposed conversion/continuation, (iv) in the case of a conversion to a Eurodollar Rate Loan, or a continuation of a Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan, the requested Interest Period and (v) in the case of a conversion to a Eurodollar Rate Loan, or a continuation of a Eurodollar Rate Loan or a HIBOR Rate Loan, that no Potential Event of Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or, if a Potential Event of Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Borrower has not been notified in writing by the Administrative Agent that it may not continue such Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan. In lieu of delivering the above-described Conversion/Continuation Notice, the Borrower may give the Administrative Agent telephonic notice by the required time of any proposed conversion/continuation under this subsection 2.2D; provided that such notice shall be promptly confirmed in writing by delivery of a Conversion/Continuation Notice to the Administrative Agent on or before the proposed conversion/continuation date.  Upon receipt of written or telephonic notice of any proposed conversion/continuation under this subsection 2.2D, the Administrative Agent shall promptly transmit such notice by telefacsimile or telephone to each Lender.
 
Neither the Administrative Agent nor any Lender shall incur any liability to the Borrower in acting upon any telephonic notice referred to above that the Administrative Agent believes in good faith to have been given by a duly authorized officer or other Person authorized to act on behalf of the Borrower or for otherwise acting in good faith under this subsection 2.2D, and upon conversion or continuation of the applicable basis for determining the interest rate with respect to any Loans in accordance with this Agreement pursuant to any such telephonic notice the Borrower shall have effected a conversion or continuation, as the case may be, hereunder.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Except as otherwise provided in subsections 2.6B, 2.6C, 2.6F and 2.6G, a Conversion/Continuation Notice for conversion to, or continuation of, a Eurodollar Rate Loan or a HIBOR Rate Loan (or telephonic notice in lieu thereof) shall be irrevocable on and after the related Interest Rate Determination Date, and the Borrower shall be bound to effect a conversion or continuation in accordance therewith.
 
E.           Default Rate.  Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of any Event of Default, all overdue amounts other than fees then due and payable hereunder, shall thereafter bear interest (including post-petition interest in any proceeding under the Bankruptcy Code or other applicable bankruptcy laws) payable upon demand at a rate that is 2% per annum in excess of the interest rate otherwise payable under this Agreement with respect to the applicable Loans (and, in the case of any fees, at a rate which is 2% per annum in excess of the interest rate otherwise payable under this Agreement for Base Rate Loans); provided that, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans and HIBOR Rate Loans, upon the expiration of the Interest Period in effect at the time any such increase in the interest rate is effective such Eurodollar Rate Loans and HIBOR Rate Loans shall thereupon become Base Rate Loans and shall thereafter bear interest payable upon demand at a rate which is 2% per annum in excess of the interest rate otherwise payable under this Agreement for Base Rate Loans.  Payment or acceptance of the increased rates of interest provided for in this subsection 2.2E is not a permitted alternative to timely payment and shall not constitute a waiver of any Event of Default or otherwise prejudice or limit any rights or remedies of the Administrative Agent or any Lender.

subsection 10.1I, each of the installments of principal payments of the Term Loans due after the date of such cancellation (including the final principal payment on the applicable Term Loan Maturity Date) shall be cancelled on a pro rata basis.
 
B.           Prepayments and Unscheduled Reductions in Commitments.
 
(i)             Voluntary Prepayments.  The Borrower may, upon not less than one Business Day’s prior written or telephonic notice given to the Administrative Agent by 11:00a.m. (Macau SAR time), in the case of Base Rate Loans (other than Swing Line Loans denominated in Patacas or HK Dollars), five Business Days’ (or, on any day prior to the 60th day following the Restatement Date, in case of a voluntary prepayment of Non-Extended Initial Term Loans, two Business Days’) prior written or telephonic notice given to the Administrative Agent by 11:00a.m. (Macau SAR time), in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans and HIBOR Rate Loans, and upon written or telephonic notice given to the Administrative Agent by 11:00a.m. (Macau SAR time) on the date of such prepayment with respect to Swing Line Loans denominated in HK Dollars, and in each case, if given by telephone, promptly confirmed in writing to the Administrative Agent (which original written or telephonic notice Administrative Agent will promptly transmit by telefacsimile or telephone to each Lender), at any time and from time to time prepay any Loans on any Business Day in whole or in part in an aggregate minimum amount of $1,000,000 and integral multiples of $1,000,000 in excess of that amount (or in the case of Swing Line Loans, in an aggregate minimum amount of $500,000, and in integral multiples of $100,000 in excess of that amount); provided, however, that with respect to any Eurodollar Rate Loan or a HIBOR Rate Loan not prepaid on the expiration of the Interest Period applicable thereto the Borrower shall pay any amount payable pursuant to subsection 2.6D.  Notice of prepayment having been given as aforesaid, the principal amount of the Loans specified in such notice shall become due and payable on the prepayment date specified therein in the currency in which such loans were made to the Borrower unless such notice is in connection with a refinancing of the Loans in which case such notice may be conditioned upon consummation of such refinancing.  Any such voluntary prepayment shall be applied as specified in subsection 2.4B(iv).
 
(ii)             Voluntary Reductions of Commitments.  The Borrower may, upon not less than five Business Days’ prior written or telephonic notice confirmed in writing to the Administrative Agent (which original written or telephonic notice Administrative Agent will promptly transmit by telefacsimile or telephone to each Lender), at any time and from time to time terminate in whole or permanently reduce in part, without premium or penalty, the Revolving Loan Commitments in an amount up to the amount by which the Revolving Loan Commitments exceed the Total Utilization of Revolving Loan Commitments at the time of such proposed termination or reduction; provided that any such partial reduction of such Commitments shall be in an aggregate minimum amount of $1,000,000 and integral multiples of $1,000,000 in excess of that amount.  The Borrower’s notice to the Administrative Agent shall designate the date (which shall be a Business Day) of such termination or reduction and the amount of any partial reduction, and such termination or reduction of such Commitments shall be effective on the date specified in the Borrower’s notice and shall reduce such Commitment of each Lender proportionately to its Pro Rata Share; provided, that if such cancellation is in connection with a refinancing of all or a part of Commitments then outstanding, such date shall be the date on which such refinancing is consummated if such date is different than the date
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
specified in the Borrower’s notice.  Any such voluntary reduction of the Commitments shall be applied as specified in subsection 2.4B(iv).

(a)           Prepayments From Net Asset Sale Proceeds.  If any Asset Sale is consummated, then no later than the fifth Business Day following the date of receipt by any Loan Party of any Net Asset Sale Proceeds in respect of such Asset Sale (other than Net Asset Sale Proceeds from any Asset Sale (other than the sale of the Venetian Macao Mall, Four Seasons Macao Mall or Four Seasons Macao Resort Project (including any complementary suites comprising a portion thereof)) to the extent such Net Asset Sale Proceeds are reinvested in the business of the Loan Parties within 12 months of receipt), the Borrower shall prepay the Loans in an aggregate amount equal to such Net Asset Sale Proceeds (except that, in the case of Net Asset Sale Proceeds received from Permitted Asset Dispositions constituting the sale (including by way of the sale of equity interests in the applicable entities) of the Venetian Macao Mall, Four Seasons Mall or Four Seasons Macao Resort Project (including any complementary suites comprising a portion thereof), if the Company makes a dividend with the proceeds thereof in accordance with subsection 7.5(ii), such prepayments shall only be required in an amount not less than 75% of the Net Asset Sale Proceeds received in respect of such Permitted Asset Disposition); provided that no such prepayment or reinvestment shall be required with respect to any Asset Sales if at the time such prepayment would otherwise be due (A) no Event of Default or Potential Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or will result from such Asset Sale, and (B) the Consolidated Leverage Ratio is, prior to giving effect to such prepayment, less than 4.0:1.0; provided further that the amount of any prepayment otherwise required pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this subsection 2.4B(iii)(a) shall be reduced by an amount equal to the lesser of (x) the Permitted Bond Ratable Share of such amount and (y) the amount of the related Net Asset Sale Proceeds which are required by the provisions of the Permitted Bonds, Permitted Pari Passu Secured Refinancing Debt, Other Loans or any other Indebtedness permitted to be incurred pursuant to subsections 7.1(xx) and 7.1(xxi) (collectively, the “Pari Passu Indebtedness”) to be applied or offered to be applied to the redemption or retirement of Pari Passu Indebtedness; provided that to the extent such Net Asset Sale Proceeds are not so applied to retire or redeem Pari Passu Indebtedness after an offer to do so has been made (“Excess Asset Sale Proceeds”), such Excess Asset Sale Proceeds shall be applied to repay Loans in accordance with this subsection 2.4B(iii)(a).  For purposes of this subsection 2.4B(iii)(a), (a) no Net Asset Sale Proceeds shall be deemed to have been received by a Loan Party as a result of any Asset Sale of a complementary accommodation, apartment or condominium units at any Project (including any sale of equity in connection with the sale or disposition of such
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
apartments, accommodations or units) until such time as the final payment for such Asset Sale is received (and is not contractually subject to return or refund) by a Loan Party, and (b) no prepayment shall be required with respect to Net Asset Sale Proceeds received as a result of Asset Sales of complementary accommodations, apartment or condominium units at any Project (including any sale of equity in connection with the sale or disposition of such apartments, accommodations or units) until the aggregate amount of such Net Asset Sale Proceeds with respect to the applicable Project is in excess of $10,000,000 since the prior prepayment made with respect to Net Asset Sale Proceeds received as a result of Asset Sales of complementary accommodations, apartment or condominium units at such Project (including the above-described equity sales), and in no event shall any prepayments with respect to Net Asset Sale Proceeds received as a result of Asset Sales of complementary accommodations, apartment or condominium units at any Project (including the above-described equity sales) be required to be made more frequently than once per calendar month.
 
(b)           Prepayments from Net Loss Proceeds.  Subject to subsection 6.4C, the terms of the Gaming Concession Contract and applicable law, no later than the date on which Net Loss Proceeds are required to be applied to prepayment of Loans pursuant to the last sentence of this subsection 2.4B(iii)(b), the Borrower shall prepay the Loans in an amount equal to such Net Loss Proceeds; provided, however, so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Borrower or another Loan Party may use such Net Loss Proceeds to repair, restore and replace the property or asset with respect to which such Net Loss Proceeds were paid in order to compensate the Borrower or such other Loan Party for the Event of Loss which occurred thereto so long as such Net Loss Proceeds are used for such purposes within 12 months of the Borrower’s receipt of such Net Loss Proceeds (or, if committed for such use by the Borrower, actually used for such purposes within 15 months of the Borrower’s receipt of such Net Loss Proceeds); provided further that the amount of any prepayment otherwise required pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this subsection 2.4B(iii)(b) shall be reduced by an amount equal to the lesser of (x) the Permitted Bond Ratable Share of such amount and (y) the amount of the related Net Loss Proceeds which are required by the provisions of the Pari Passu Indebtedness to be applied or offered to be applied to the prepayment, redemption or retirement, as applicable, of Pari Passu Indebtedness; provided that to the extent such Net Loss Proceeds are not so applied to retire or redeem Permitted Bonds after an offer to do so has been made (“Excess Loss Proceeds”), such Excess Loss Proceeds shall be applied to repay Loans in accordance with this Section 2.4B(iii)(b).  To the extent such Net Loss Proceeds are not so reinvested, the Borrower will make a prepayment of the Loans within five Business Days of the end of such 12-or-15 month period, as the case may be; provided further, that no prepayment shall be required with any Net Loss Proceeds from any Event of Loss that, taken together with all other Events of Loss from and after the Restatement Date as to which the Net Loss Proceeds were not used to prepay loans hereunder do not exceed $10,000,000 in the aggregate, so long as such Net Loss Proceeds are reinvested in assets of the Loan Parties used or useful in the business of the Loan Parties (which assets shall be pledged as Collateral to support the Obligations) within 12 months of the Borrower’s receipt of such Net Loss Proceeds.
 
(c)           Prepayments from Net Termination Proceeds.  No later than the fifth Business Day following the date of receipt by the Company or any other Loan Party of any Net Termination Proceeds, the Borrower shall prepay the Loans in an aggregate amount equal to 100% of such Net Termination Proceeds; provided that the amount of any prepayment otherwise required pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this subsection 2.4B(iii)(c) shall be reduced by an amount equal to the lesser of (x) the
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Permitted Bond Ratable Share of such amount and (y) the amount of the related Net Termination Proceeds which are required by the provisions of the Pari Passu Indebtedness to be applied or offered to be applied to the prepayment, redemption or retirement, as applicable, of Pari Passu Indebtedness; provided further that to the extent such Net Termination Proceeds are not so applied to retire or redeem Permitted Bonds after an offer to do so has been made (“Excess Termination Proceeds”), such Excess Termination Proceeds shall be applied to repay Loans in accordance with this subsection 2.4B(iii)(c).
 
(d)           Prepayments Due to Incurrence of Debt.  On the fifth Business Day following the date of receipt by the Company or any other Loan Party of the Cash proceeds (any such proceeds, net of underwriting discounts and commissions and other reasonable fees, costs and expenses associated therewith, including reasonable legal fees and expenses and any Taxes paid or payable as a result thereof, being “Net Proceeds”) from the incurrence of any debt of the Company or any other Loan Party (other than any debt expressly permitted under subsection 7.1), the Borrower shall prepay the Loans in an aggregate amount equal to 100% of such Net Proceeds.
 
(e)           Calculations of Net Proceeds Amounts; Additional Prepayments Based on Subsequent Calculations.  Concurrently with any prepayment of the Loans pursuant to subsections 2.4B(iii)(a)-(d), the Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent an Officers’ Certificate demonstrating the calculation of the amount (the “Net Proceeds Amount”) of the applicable Net Asset Sale Proceeds, Net Loss Proceeds, Net Termination Proceeds or Net Proceeds, as the case may be, that gave rise to such prepayment.  In the event that the Borrower shall subsequently determine that the actual Net Proceeds Amount was greater than the amount set forth in such Officers’ Certificate, the Borrower shall promptly make an additional prepayment of the Loans in an amount equal to the amount of such excess, and the Borrower shall concurrently therewith deliver to the Administrative Agent an Officers’ Certificate demonstrating the derivation of the additional Net Proceeds Amount resulting in such excess.
 
(f)           [Reserved].
 
(g)           Prepayments Due to Reductions or Restrictions of Revolving Loan Commitments.  The Borrower shall from time to time prepay Swing Line Loans and/or Revolving Loans to the extent necessary so that the Total Utilization of Revolving Loan Commitments shall not at any time exceed the Revolving Loan Commitments then in effect; provided that no prepayments shall be required pursuant to this clause (g) due to fluctuations in the exchange rate of currencies.
 
(h)           Drawings on Conforming Parent L/Cs.  In the event that any Conforming Parent L/C Draw Event shall have occurred, the Administrative Agent may draw down on each outstanding Conforming Parent L/C in its entirety.  For the avoidance of doubt, a Conforming Parent L/C Draw Event shall be in addition to an Event of Default described in Section 8 and (i) the Administrative Agent shall not be required to exercise any rights or remedy under Section 8 in order to draw on the Conforming Parent L/Cs and (ii) any drawing on a Conforming Parent L/C shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any Event of
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Default.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, at the request of the Borrower, the Administrative Agent shall release any Conforming Parent L/C or a portion thereof in its possession to the Borrower, provided that each of the following conditions shall have been satisfied:  (i) no Conforming Parent L/C Draw Event shall have occurred and be continuing, (ii) the Borrower shall at such time be in compliance with subsection 7.6 and shall have been in compliance therewith for the preceding four consecutive quarters (without giving effect to any such Conforming Parent L/C or a portion thereof or any substitute equity contribution by Parent or its Affiliates), (iii) no Event of Default or Potential Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing and (iv) since the last day of the preceding calendar year, no event or change shall have occurred that caused, in any case or in the aggregate, a Material Adverse Effect.

(j)            [Reserved].
 
(k)           [Reserved].
 
(iv)          Application of Prepayments.
 
(a)           Application of Voluntary Prepayments by Type of Loan and Order of Maturity.  Any voluntary prepayments pursuant to subsection 2.4B(i) shall be applied (1) as specified by the Borrower with respect to Revolving Loans or Swing Line Loans in the applicable notice of prepayment and (2) on a pro rata basis (in accordance with subsection 2.4B(iv)(c)) with respect to Term Loans or, at the option of the Borrower, applied to the Non-Extended Initial Term Loans on a pro rata basis (in accordance with subsection 2.4B(iv)(c)); provided that in the event the Borrower fails to specify the Loans to which any such prepayment shall be applied, such prepayment shall be applied first to repay outstanding Swing Line Loans and Revolving Loans to the full extent thereof on a pro rata basis and second to repay outstanding Term Loans on a pro rata basis (in accordance with subsection 2.4B(iv)(c)).
 
(b)           Application of Mandatory Prepayments by Type of Loans.  Any amount (the “Applied Amount”) required to be applied as a mandatory prepayment of the Term Loans pursuant to subsections 2.4B(iii)(a)-(e) or (h) shall be applied to first prepay the Term Loans on a pro rata basis to the full extent thereof, provided that, until the date that is 270 calendar days after the Restatement Date, the Borrower may elect to apply such prepayments first to prepay the Non-Extended Initial Term Loans on a pro rata basis before prepaying the Extended Initial Term Loans, and second, to the extent of any remaining portion of the Applied Amount, to prepay the Revolving Loans pro rata to the full extent thereof (without any reduction of Revolving Loan Commitments).
 
(c)           Application of Prepayments of Term Loans to the Scheduled Installments of Principal Thereof.  Any prepayments of the Term Loans pursuant to subsection 2.4B(i) or 2.4B(iii)(a)-(e) or (h) shall be applied to the scheduled installments thereof (including the final principal payment on the applicable Term Loan Maturity Date) on a pro rata basis.
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
(d)           [Reserved].
 
(e)           Application of Prepayments to Base Rate Loans, Eurodollar Rate Loans and HIBOR Rate Loans.  Considering Loans being prepaid separately, any prepayment thereof shall be applied first to Base Rate Loans to the full extent thereof before application to Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans, in each case in a manner which minimizes the amount of any payments required to be made by the Borrower pursuant to subsection 2.6D.
 
C.           General Provisions Regarding Payments.
 
(i)             Manner and Time of Payment.  All payments by the Borrower of principal, interest, fees and other Obligations hereunder and under the Notes shall be made in Dollars, Patacas or HK Dollars, based on each Lender’s Percentage of outstanding Term Loans and Revolving Loans in each such currency (or, with respect to commitment fees under subsection 2.3A, each Lender’s Percentage of the Commitments under the applicable Facility in the currency of such Commitments), in same day funds, without defense, setoff or counterclaim, free of any restriction or condition, and delivered to the Administrative Agent not later than 11:00a.m. (Macau SAR time) on the date due (or, if necessary, on the next preceding Business Day) at the applicable Payment and Funding Office for the account of Lenders; for purposes of computing interest and fees, funds received by the Administrative Agent after that time on such due date shall be deemed to have been paid by the Borrower on the next succeeding Business Day.  The Borrower hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to charge its accounts with Administrative Agent in order to cause timely payment to be made to the Administrative Agent of all principal, interest, fees and expenses due hereunder (subject to sufficient funds being available in its accounts for that purpose).
 
(ii)             Application of Payments to Principal and Interest.  All payments in respect of the principal amount of any Loan shall include payment of accrued interest on the principal amount being repaid or prepaid, and all such payments shall be applied to the payment of interest before application to principal.
 
(iii)             Apportionment of Payments.  Aggregate principal and interest payments in respect of Loans shall be apportioned among all outstanding Loans proportionately to the Lenders’ respective Pro Rata Shares (subject to subsection 2.12).  The Administrative Agent (or its agent or sub-agent appointed by it) shall promptly distribute to each Lender, at its primary address set forth on Schedule 2.1 or at such other address as such Lender may request in writing, its Pro Rata Share of all such payments received by the Administrative Agent, and the commitment fees of such Lender and all other amounts due to such Lender, when received by the Administrative Agent pursuant to subsection 2.3 (subject to subsection 2.12).  Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this subsection 2.4C(iii), if, pursuant to the provisions of subsection 2.6C, any Conversion/Continuation Notice is withdrawn as to any Affected Lender or Market Disruption Lender or if any Affected Lender or Market Disruption Lender makes Base Rate Loans or Alternate HK Dollar Rate Loans in lieu of its Pro Rata Share of any Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans, the Administrative Agent shall give effect thereto in apportioning payments received thereafter.
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
(iv)             Payments on Business Days.  Subject to the provisos set forth in the definition of “Interest Period” as they may apply to Revolving Loans, whenever any payment to be made hereunder shall be stated to be due on a day that is not a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and, with respect to Revolving Loans only, such extension of time shall be included in the computation of the payment of interest hereunder or of the commitment fees hereunder, as the case may be.
 
(v)             Notation of Payment.  Each Lender agrees that before disposing of any Note held by it, or any part thereof (other than by granting participations therein), that Lender will make a notation thereon of all Loans evidenced by that Note and all principal payments previously made thereon and of the date to which interest thereon has been paid; provided that the failure to make (or any error in the making of) a notation of any Loan made under such Note shall not limit or otherwise affect the obligations of the Borrower hereunder or under such Note with respect to any Loan or any payments of principal or interest on such Note.
 
2.5           Use of Proceeds.
 
A.           Revolving Loans.  The proceeds of the Restatement Date Revolving Loans, including any Swing Line Loans, shall be applied by the Borrower (i) to fund the ongoing development of the VOL Casino Hotel Resort Project, (ii) to fund the development on Site 3 and (iii) for working capital and other general corporate purposes of the Loan Parties, including to make any investment or payment not specifically prohibited by the terms of the Loan Documents and to pay the Transaction Costs.

D.           Margin Regulations.  No portion of the proceeds of any borrowing under this Agreement shall be used by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or any of their Affiliates in any manner that would cause the borrowing or the application of such proceeds to violate Regulation U, Regulation T or Regulation X of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System or any other regulation of such Board or to violate the Exchange Act, in each case as in effect on the date or dates of such borrowing and such use of proceeds.
 
E.           Sanctions.  No portion of the proceeds of any borrowing under this Agreement shall be used by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (or, to the actual knowledge of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, any of their Affiliates) for business activities relating to Cuba, Sudan, Iran, Myanmar (Burma), Syria, North Korea or Libya. No portion of the proceeds of any borrowing under this Agreement shall be used by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (or, to the actual knowledge of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, any of their Affiliates) for business activities that are prohibited by sanctions, restrictions or embargoes imposed by the United Nations, the European Union, the United States Treasury Department’s
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Office of Foreign Assets Control, HM Treasury of the United Kingdom, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Australia and/or the Reserve Bank of Australia. This includes, in particular (but without limitation) business activities involving Persons or entities named on any sanctions lists issued by any of the aforementioned bodies (each such Person or entity being a “Restricted Party”).

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, the following provisions shall govern with respect to Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans as to the matters covered:
 
A.           Determination of Applicable Interest Rate.  As soon as practicable after 1:00p.m. (Macau SAR time) on each Interest Rate Determination Date, the Administrative Agent shall determine (which determination shall, absent manifest error, be final, conclusive and binding upon all parties) the interest rate that shall apply to the Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans for which an interest rate is then being determined for the applicable Interest Period and shall promptly give notice thereof (in writing or by telephone confirmed in writing) to the Borrower and each Lender.
 
B.           Inability to Determine Applicable Interest Rate.  In the event that the Administrative Agent shall have determined (which determination shall be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto), on any Interest Rate Determination Date with respect to any Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans, that by reason of circumstances affecting the interbank Eurodollar or HK Dollar market adequate and fair means do not exist for ascertaining the interest rate applicable to such Loans on the basis provided for in the definition of Adjusted Eurodollar Rate or HIBOR Rate, as the case may be, the Administrative Agent shall on such date give notice (by telefacsimile or by telephone confirmed in writing) to the Borrower and each Lender of such determination, whereupon (i) no Loans may be made as, or converted to, Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans, as the case may be, until such time as Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist and (ii) any Borrowing Notice or Conversion/Continuation Notice given by the Borrower with respect to the Loans denominated in Dollars in respect of which such determination was made shall be deemed to be made with respect to Base Rate Loans.
 
C.           Illegality or Impracticability of Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans.  In the event that it becomes unlawful for a Lender to make, maintain or continue its Commitments or Loans, as contemplated by this Agreement, as a result of compliance by such Lender in good faith with any Change in Law (or would conflict with any treaty, order, policy, rule or regulation (including any regulation set forth by the Nevada Gaming Authority or any other gaming authority with jurisdiction over the gaming business of the Company) having the force of law), then, and in any such event, such Lender shall be an “Affected Lender” and it shall promptly give notice (by telefacsimile or by telephone confirmed in writing) to the Borrower and the
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Administrative Agent of such determination (which notice Administrative Agent shall promptly transmit to each other Lender).  Thereafter (i) if the same is unlawful for such Affected Lender, the obligation of such Affected Lender to make Loans as, or to convert Loans to, Eurodollar Rate Loans, HIBOR Rate Loans and Base Rate Loans, as the case may be, shall be suspended until such notice shall be withdrawn by the Affected Lender (which such Affected Lender shall do at the earliest practicable date), (ii) if it becomes unlawful for such Affected Lender to maintain its outstanding Loans, such Affected Lender’s obligation to maintain its outstanding Loans (the “Affected Loans”) shall, subject to subsection 2.8A, be terminated, its Commitments shall be terminated and its RL Percentage and/or TL Percentage, as applicable, shall be reduced to zero, in each case, at the earlier to occur of the expiration of the Interest Period then in effect with respect to the Affected Loans or when required by law (being no earlier than the last day of any applicable grace period permitted by law), whereupon such Affected Lender shall receive a prepayment in the amount of its outstanding Loans and cease to be a Lender under this Agreement, and (iii) the Borrower shall promptly pay to the Administrative Agent such additional amounts of cash as reasonably requested by any Issuing Lender or the Swing Line Lender to be held as security for the Borrower’s reimbursement Obligations in respect of Letters of Credit and Swing Line Loans then outstanding (such amount not to exceed such Affected Lender’s obligations under subsection 2.10D, subsection 3.1C or subsection 3.3C).  Except as provided in the immediately preceding sentence, nothing in this subsection 2.6C shall affect the obligation of any Lender other than an Affected Lender to make or maintain Loans as, or to convert Loans to, Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
 
D.           Compensation For Breakage or Non-Commencement of Interest Periods.  The Borrower shall compensate each Lender, upon written request by that Lender (which request shall set forth the basis for requesting such amounts), for all reasonable losses, expenses and liabilities (including any interest paid by that Lender to lenders of funds borrowed by it to make or carry its Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans and any loss, expense or liability sustained by that Lender in connection with the liquidation or re-employment of such funds) which that Lender may sustain:  (i) if for any reason (other than a default by that Lender) a borrowing of any Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan does not occur on a date specified therefor in a Borrowing Notice or a telephonic request for borrowing, as applicable, or a borrowing of any Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan does not occur as a result of the revocation by the Borrower of the related Borrowing Notice pursuant to subsection 2.6F, or a conversion to or continuation of any Eurodollar Rate Loan or HIBOR Rate Loan does not occur on a date specified therefor in a Conversion/Continuation Notice or a telephonic request for conversion or continuation, (ii) if any prepayment (including any prepayment pursuant to subsection 2.4B(i) and subsection 2.4B(iii)) or other principal payment (including pursuant to an assignment of Revolving Loans on any Increased Amount Date pursuant to Section 2.12) or any conversion of any of its Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans occurs on a date prior to the last day of an Interest Period applicable to that Loan, (iii) if any prepayment of any of its Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans is not made on any date specified in a notice of prepayment given by the Borrower, or (iv) as a consequence of any other default by the Borrower in the repayment of its Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans when required by the terms of this Agreement.  If at any time any prepayment is required that would give rise to any compensation pursuant to this subsection 2.6D under clause (ii) of the preceding sentence, and no Potential Event of Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, then at the
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Borrower’s option upon five Business Days’ notice to the Administrative Agent, the applicable prepayment amount may be deposited irrevocably into the Prepayment Account in lieu of payment to the applicable Lenders.  Such funds shall be held in the Prepayment Account until the last day of the applicable Interest Period, at which time the amount deposited in the Prepayment Account shall be further disbursed to the applicable Lenders.  The deposit of amounts into the Prepayment Account shall not constitute a prepayment of principal and all principal to be prepaid using the proceeds from such account shall continue to accrue interest at the then applicable interest rate until actually prepaid.
 
E.           Booking of Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans.  Any Lender may make, carry or transfer Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans at, to, or for the account of any of its branch offices or the office of an Affiliate of that Lender, provided that as of the date of any such change in any Lender’s booking office for its Commitments or Loans hereunder or the effective date of any such assignment to an Affiliate of such Lender, such Lender or Affiliate is not entitled to claim an amount in excess of that which would have been payable to or for the account of original branch of such Lender or such Lender, as the case may be, in respect of Included Taxes pursuant to subsection 2.7C(i) (but without prejudice to any obligation of the Borrower under this Agreement with respect to such Included Taxes occurring after the date of such change or assignment).
 
F.           Market Disruption.  If within one Business Day after the Interest Rate Determination Date for any Interest Period with respect to any Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans the Administrative Agent receives notifications from any Lender, or Lenders, holding more than 50% of the aggregate principal amount of Loans (any such Lender or Lenders, “Market Disruption Lenders”) that the cost to it or them of obtaining matching deposits in the London interbank market or the Hong Kong interbank market, respectively, would be in excess of the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate or the HIBOR Rate, as the case may be (a “Market Disruption Event”), then, the rate of interest for such Loans for such Interest Period shall be calculated in the manner set forth in clauses (1) and (2) of the next sentence.  Upon receipt of notification from the Market Disruption Lenders, the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrower in writing (which notice shall identify the Market Disruption Lenders) of the occurrence of such Market Disruption Event, and thereafter the Borrower may by telephonic notice to the Administrative Agent, at any time prior to the Business Day next preceding the date of such Borrowing or the first day of such Interest Period, as the case may be, revoke any pending request for a Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans, as applicable, or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for a Borrowing of (1) in the case of Loans denominated in Dollars, Base Rate Loans and (2) in the case of Loans denominated in HK Dollars or Patacas, Loans at the HIBOR Rate determined as the arithmetic mean of the rates quoted by Reference Banks in accordance with clause (b) in the definition of HIBOR Rate (or if the HIBOR Rate which gave rise to the Market Disruption Event was already determined in such manner, at the Alternate HK Dollar Rate) in the amount specified therein. If a Market Disruption Event occurs and the Administrative Agent or the Borrower so requires, the Administrative Agent and the Borrower shall enter into negotiations (for a period of not more than 30 days) with a view to agreeing as substitute basis for determining the rate of interest for Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans, as the case may be).  Any alternative basis so agreed between the Administrative Agent and the Borrower shall, with the prior consent of all Lenders and the Borrower, be binding on all parties hereto.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
G.           Eurodollar Rate Loans and HIBOR Rate Loans After Default.  After the occurrence of and during the continuation of a Potential Event of Default or an Event of Default, (i) if so notified by the Administrative Agent, the Borrower may not elect to have a Loan be made or maintained as, or converted to, a Eurodollar Rate Loan or a HIBOR Rate Loan (provided that, if such notice has been given by the Administrative Agent, such HIBOR Rate Loan shall bear interest at the Alternate HK Dollar Rate), after the expiration of any Interest Period then in effect for that Loan and (ii) subject to the provisions of subsection 2.6D, any Borrowing Notice or Conversion/Continuation Notice given by the Borrower with respect to a requested borrowing or conversion/continuation that has not yet occurred shall be deemed made with respect to Base Rate Loans.
 
2.7           Increased Costs; Capital Adequacy; Taxes.
 
A.           Compensation for Increased Costs and Taxes.  Subject to the provisions of subsection 2.7C (which shall be controlling with respect to the matters covered thereby), in the event that any Lender shall determine (which determination shall, absent manifest error, be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto) that any Change in Law:
 
(i)             subjects such Lender (or its applicable lending office or (as the case may be) any of its direct or indirect parents) to any additional Tax (other than any Tax on the overall net income of such Lender or (as the case may be) any of its direct or indirect parents) or an Included Tax with respect to this Agreement or any of its obligations hereunder or any payments to such Lender (or its applicable lending office or (as the case may be) any of its direct and indirect parents) of principal, interest, fees or any other amount payable hereunder;
 
(ii)             imposes, modifies or holds applicable any reserve (including any marginal, emergency, supplemental, special or other reserve), special deposit, compulsory loan, FDIC insurance or similar requirement against assets held by, or deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, or advances or loans by, or other credit extended by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of such Lender or (as the case may be) any of its direct or indirect parents (other than any such reserve or other requirements with respect to Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans that are reflected in the definition of Adjusted Eurodollar Rate or HIBOR Rate, respectively); or
 
(iii)             imposes any other condition (other than with respect to a Tax matter) on or affecting such Lender (or its applicable lending office) or its obligations hereunder or the interbank Eurodollar or HK Dollar market;
 
and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender or (as the case may be) any of its direct or indirect parents of agreeing to make, making or maintaining Eurodollar Rate Loans or HIBOR Rate Loans hereunder, or to reduce any amount received or receivable by such Lender (or its applicable lending office or (as the case may be) any of its direct or indirect parents) with respect thereto; then, in any such case, the Borrower shall promptly pay to such Lender, upon receipt of the statement referred to in the next sentence, such additional amount or amounts (in the form of an increased rate of, or a different method of calculating, interest or otherwise as such Lender in its sole discretion shall determine) as may be necessary to compensate such Lender for any such increased cost or reduction in amounts received or
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
receivable hereunder.  Such Lender shall deliver to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) a written statement, setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for calculating the additional amounts owed to such Lender under this subsection 2.7A, which statement shall be prima facie evidence of the matters set forth therein. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Borrower shall not be required to compensate any Lender pursuant to this subsection 2.7A for any Taxes, costs or reduced amounts incurred more than twelve (12) months prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower of the circumstances giving rise to such Taxes or increased costs or reduction in amounts received or receivable by such Lender and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor (except that, if the circumstances giving rise to such Taxes, increased costs or reductions are retroactive in effect, then the twelve-month period referred to above shall (if the period of retroactive effect includes any period prior to the first day of such twelve month period) be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof).
 
B.           Capital Adequacy Adjustment.  If any Lender (which term shall include the Issuing Lender for purposes of this subsection 2.7B) shall have determined that any Change in Law has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on the capital of such Lender or any corporation controlling such Lender as a consequence of, or with reference to, such Lender’s Loans or Commitments or participations in Letters of Credit or other obligations hereunder with respect to the Loans or the Letters of Credit to a level below that which such Lender, or such controlling corporation could have achieved but for such adoption, effectiveness, phase-in, applicability, change or compliance (taking into consideration the policies of such Lender or such controlling corporation with regard to capital adequacy), then from time to time, within five Business Days after receipt by the Borrower from such Lender of the statement referred to in the next sentence, the Borrower shall pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or (as the case may be) or such controlling corporation on an after-tax basis for such reduction.  Such Lender shall deliver to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) a written statement, setting forth in reasonable detail the basis of the calculation of such additional amounts, which statement shall be conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto absent manifest error; provided that (A) the Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this subsection 2.7B for any amount incurred more than 270 days prior to the date of the written demand therefor, and (B) the limitation in (A) shall not apply to any claim arising out of the retroactive application of any Change in Law giving rise to such loss, expense or liability.
 
C.           Taxes; Withholding; Etc.
 
(i)             Payments to Be Free and Clear.  All sums payable by the Borrower or any other Loan Party under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to any Agent or any Lender shall (except to the extent required by law) be paid free and clear of, and without any deduction or withholding on account of, any Tax (other than an Excluded Tax) imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by or within (a) the United States or any political subdivision in or of the United States or (b) Macau SAR or any political subdivision in or of Macau SAR or (c) any other jurisdiction from or to which a payment is made or deemed made by or on behalf of the Borrower or by any federation or organization of which the United States or any such jurisdiction is a member at the time of payment, all such non-excluded Taxes being hereinafter collectively referred to as “Included Taxes”.
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
(ii)             Withholding of Taxes.  If the Borrower or any other Person is required by law to make any deduction or withholding on account of any such Included Tax from any sum paid or payable by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent or any Lender under any of the Loan Documents (each, as applicable, a “Withholding Agent”), then:
 
(a)           the applicable Withholding Agent or the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding;
 
(b)           the applicable Withholding Agent or the Administrative Agent shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Instrumentality in accordance with the applicable law; and
 
(c)           the sum payable by the applicable Withholding Agent shall be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that, after the making of that deduction, withholding or payment (including any deduction, withholding or payment on amounts paid pursuant to this subsection 2.7C(ii), the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, receives on the due date a net sum equal to what it would have received had no deduction, withholding or payment been required or made.
 
(iii)             Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by any Loan Party to a Governmental Instrumentality pursuant to subsection 2.7C, such Loan Party shall deliver to the Administrative Agent evidence satisfactory to the other affected parties of such deduction, withholding or payment and of the remittance thereof to the relevant taxing or other authority.
 
(iv)             Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrower. The Borrower shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Instrumentality in accordance with the applicable law any Other Taxes.
 
(v)             Indemnification by the Borrower. The Borrower shall indemnify and hold harmless the Administrative Agent and each Lender within 10 Business Days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed on the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this subsection 2.7C), and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Instrumentality.  A certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the basis and calculation of the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrower by a Lender or the Administrative Agent (as applicable) on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
 
(vi)             Indemnification by the Lenders. Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within 10 Business Days after written demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that the Borrower has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Borrower to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 10.1, and (iii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Lender, in each case, that are payable and paid by the Administrative Agent in connection with any Loan Document, and any reasonably expenses arising therefore or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Instrumentality. A certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the basis and calculation of the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this paragraph.
 
(vii)             Status of Lenders.  Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of any Included Taxes imposed on payments made by the Borrower or any Guarantor pursuant to the Loan Documents shall deliver to the Administrative Agent for transmission to the Borrower, promptly upon request to such Lender by the Borrower, such properly completed and executed documentation provided by the Borrower and prescribed by applicable law and such other information reasonably requested that is necessary to reduce or eliminate such Tax. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Lender shall be obligated to provide any documentation pursuant to this subsection 2.7C(vii) if such Lender is not legally able to do so.
 
(a)           If a payment made to any Lender under this Agreement or any other Loan Document would be subject to U.S. 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 Internal Revenue Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Internal Revenue Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Borrower and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA, to determine whether such Lender has or has not complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount, if any, to deduct and withhold from such payment.  Solely for purposes of this subsection 2.7C(vii)(a), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.
 
(viii)             Treatment of Certain Refunds.  If a Lender or the Administrative Agent receives or anticipates, in its sole discretion, that it will ultimately receive or otherwise benefit from a refund that it determines, in its sole discretion, is in respect of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by the Borrower or with respect to which the Borrower has paid additional amounts pursuant to subsection 2.7C(ii), it shall within 30 days from the date of such receipt pay over the amount of such refund to the Borrower (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by the Borrower under this subsection 2.7C with respect to Taxes giving rise to such refund) net of all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of such Lender or the Administrative Agent and without interest (other than interest paid by the relevant taxation authority with respect to such refund); provided that the Borrower, upon request of the Administrative Agent or such Lender, agrees to repay the amount paid over to the Borrower
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
(plus any penalty, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant taxing authority) to the Administrative Agent or any Lender in the event the Administrative Agent or such Lender is required to repay such refund.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this subsection 2.7C, in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this subsection 2.7C(viii), 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 Taxes subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Taxes had never been paid.  This paragraph shall not be construed to require the Administrative Agent or any Lender to make available its Tax returns (or other information relating to its Taxes which it deems confidential) to the Borrower or any other Person.
 
(ix)             Survival.  Each party’s obligations under this subsection 2.7C shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Administrative Agent or any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, the termination of the this Agreement and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Loan Document.
 
2.8           Obligation of Lenders to Mitigate; Replacement of Lenders.
 
A.           Each Lender and Issuing Lender agrees that, as promptly as practicable after the officer of such Lender or Issuing Lender responsible for administering the Loans or Letters of Credit of such Lender or Issuing Lender, as the case may be, becomes aware of the occurrence of an event or the existence of a condition that would cause such Lender or Issuing Lender to become an Affected Lender or that would entitle such Lender or Issuing Lender to receive payments under subsection 2.7 or subsection 3.6 it will, to the extent not inconsistent with the internal policies of such Lender or Issuing Lender and any applicable legal or regulatory restrictions, use reasonable efforts (i) to make, issue, fund or maintain the Commitments of such Lender or Issuing Lender or the affected Loans or Letters of Credit of such Lender or Issuing Lender through another lending or letters of credit office of such Lender or Issuing Lender or (ii) take such other measures as such Lender or Issuing Lender may deem reasonable, if as a result thereof the circumstances which would cause such Lender or Issuing Lender to be an Affected Lender would cease to exist or the additional amounts which would otherwise be required to be paid to such Lender or Issuing Lender pursuant to subsection 2.7 would be materially reduced and if, as determined by such Lender or Issuing Lender in its sole discretion, the making, issuing, funding or maintaining of such Commitments or Loans or Letters of Credit through such other lending or Letters of Credit office or in accordance with such other measures, as the case may be, would not otherwise adversely affect, in any material respect, such Commitments or Loans or Letters of Credit or the interests of such Lender or Issuing Lender; provided that such Lender or Issuing Lender will not be obligated to utilize such other lending or Letters of Credit office pursuant to this subsection 2.8A if such Lender or Issuing Lender would incur incremental expenses as a result of utilizing such other lending office as described in clause (i) above unless the Loan Parties agree in writing to pay all such incidental costs on or prior to the date such costs would be incurred by such Lender.  A certificate as to the amount of any such expenses payable by the Borrower pursuant to this subsection 2.8A (setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for requesting such amount) submitted by such Lender or Issuing Lender to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender and Issuing Lender agrees that it will not request compensation
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
under subsection 2.7 unless such request would be consistent with such Lender’s or Issuing Lender’s general practice in such regard at such time.
 
B.           Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any Lender becomes (x) an Affected Lender, (y) a Market Disruption Lender or (z) entitled to receive any additional amounts pursuant to subsection 2.7A, 2.7B, or 2.7C(ii), then the Borrower may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in subsection 10.1, including as a condition precedent to such assignment, (i) Administrative Agent’s consent to the assignee unless not otherwise required by subsection 10.1 and (ii) payment by the Borrower of the registration fee set forth in subsection 10.1B(i), if applicable), all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment, or an Affiliate of the Company to the extent such Affiliate is permitted as an Eligible Assignee); provided that (i) such Lender shall have received irrevocable payment in full in cash of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans, accrued interest thereon, and accrued fees and all other Obligations and other amounts payable to it hereunder (including amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.6D) from the assignee or the Borrower (or such lesser amount agreed to by the parties) and (ii) such assignee would, immediately after such assignment, not be entitled to receive any additional amounts pursuant to subsection 2.7C(ii) hereof (or, alternatively, would be entitled to receive reduced additional amounts pursuant to subsection 2.7C(ii) hereof than such assignor would have received but for such assignment).
 
2.9           Incremental Facilities.
 
A.           The Borrower may by written notice to the Co-Syndication Agents and the Administrative Agent elect to request from time to time (i) prior to the Revolving Loan Commitment Termination Date, an increase to the existing Revolving Loan Commitments (any such increase, the “New Revolving Loan Commitments”) and/or (ii) the establishment of one or more new term loan commitments (the “New Term Loan Commitments”), denominated in Dollars, HK Dollars and/or Patacas pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, in an amount, together with the aggregate principal amount of all Permitted Bonds outstanding pursuant to subsection 7.1(xx), not in excess of the sum of (x) $1,000,000,000 in the aggregate plus (y) the amount of any New Term Loan Commitments the net cash proceeds of which are used solely to repay in whole or in part any Non-Extended Initial Term Loans and, in each case, not less than $25,000,000 individually (and/or the equivalent thereof in HK Dollars and/or Patacas) (or such lesser amount which shall be approved by the Administrative Agent), which amount set forth in such notice may be a proposed range of new commitments that otherwise comply with the foregoing requirements.  Each such notice shall specify the date (each, an “Increased Amount Date”) on which the Borrower proposes that the New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments, as the case may be, shall be effective, which shall be a date not less than 10 Business Days (or such shorter time as is agreed upon by the Administrative Agent) after the date on which such notice is delivered to each Co-Syndication Agent and the Administrative Agent.  When available, the Administrative Agent will deliver a notice to the Borrower and each Lender setting forth the identity of each Lender or other Person that is an Eligible Assignee or any other Person (other than a natural Person) approved by the Borrower (each, a “New Term Loan Lender” or a “New Revolving Loan Lender”, as applicable) to which the Administrative
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Agent has allocated any portion of such New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments and the amounts of such allocations, and in the case of each notice to any Revolving Loan Lender, the respective interests in such Revolving Loan Lender’s Revolving Loans, in each case subject to the assignments contemplated by this Section; provided that any Lender approached to provide all or a portion of the New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments may elect or decline, in its sole discretion, to provide a New Revolving Loan Commitment or New Term Loan Commitment.
 
B.           Such New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments shall become effective as of such Increased Amount Date; provided that (1) no Potential Event of Default or Event of Default shall exist on such Increased Amount Date before or after giving effect to such New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments and the related Credit Extensions; (2) both before and after giving effect to the effectiveness of any Series of New Term Loan Commitments or New Revolving Loan Commitments, the Consolidated Leverage Ratio shall not be greater than 3.5:1.0; (3) both before and after giving effect to the making of any Series of New Term Loans, each of the conditions set forth in Section 4.2 shall be satisfied; (4) the Borrower shall be in pro forma compliance with each of the covenants set forth in Section 7.6 as of the last day of the most recently ended Fiscal Quarter after giving effect to such New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments; (5) the New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments shall be effected pursuant to one or more Joinder Agreements executed and delivered by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, and each of which shall be recorded in the Register and shall be subject to the requirements set forth in subsection 2.7C(vii); (6) the Borrower shall make any payments required pursuant to subsection 2.6D in connection with the New Revolving Loan Commitments or New Term Loan Commitments; and (7) the Borrower shall deliver or cause to be delivered any legal opinions or other documents reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent in connection with any such transaction. Any New Term Loans made on an Increased Amount Date shall be designated a separate series (a “Series”) of New Term Loans for all purposes of this Agreement (all New Term Loans or New Term Loan Commitments of any Series, a “New Term Loan Facility”).
 
C.           On any Increased Amount Date on which New Revolving Loan Commitments are effected, subject to the satisfaction of the foregoing terms and conditions, (a) each of the Revolving Loan Lenders shall assign to each of the New Revolving Loan Lenders, and each of the New Revolving Loan Lenders shall purchase from each of the Revolving Loan Lenders, at the principal amount thereof (together with accrued interest), such interests in the Revolving Loans outstanding on such Increased Amount Date as shall be necessary in order that, after giving effect to all such assignments and purchases, such Revolving Loans will be held by existing Revolving Loan Lenders and New Revolving Loan Lenders ratably in accordance with their Revolving Loan Commitments after giving effect to the addition of such New Revolving Loan Commitments to the Revolving Loan Commitments, (b) each New Revolving Loan Commitment shall be deemed for all purposes a Revolving Loan Commitment and each Loan made thereunder (a “New Revolving Loan”) shall be deemed, for all purposes, a Revolving Loan and (c) each New Revolving Loan Lender shall become a Lender with respect to the New Revolving Loan Commitment and all matters relating thereto.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
D.           On any Increased Amount Date on which any New Term Loan Commitments of any Series are effective, subject to the satisfaction of the foregoing terms and conditions, (i) each New Term Loan Lender of such Series shall make a Loan to the Borrower (a “New Term Loan”) in an amount equal to its New Term Loan Commitment of such Series, and (ii) each New Term Loan Lender of such Series shall become a Lender hereunder with respect to the New Term Loan Commitment of such Series and the New Term Loans of such Series made pursuant thereto.  Proceeds of any Series of New Term Loans shall be deposited in an account designated by the Borrower.

2.10        Swing Line Loans.
 
A.           Swing Line Loans shall be made in an aggregate minimum amount of $500,000 and integral multiples of $100,000 in excess of that amount.
 
B.           Whenever the Borrower desires that the Swing Line Lender make a Swing Line Loan, the Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent a Borrowing Notice no later than 11:00 a.m. (Macau SAR time) one Business Day prior to the proposed Funding Date.
 
C.           The Swing Line Lender shall make the amount of its Swing Line Loan available to Administrative Agent not later than 3:00p.m. (Macau SAR time) on the applicable Funding Date by wire transfer (together with the applicable SWIFT confirmation) of same day funds in Dollars, Patacas or HK Dollars, as the case may be, where and as directed by the Borrower.  Except as provided herein, upon satisfaction or waiver of the conditions precedent specified in subsection 4.2, the Administrative Agent shall make the proceeds of such Swing Line Loans available to the Borrower on the applicable Funding Date by causing an amount of same day funds in Dollars, Patacas or HK Dollars, as the case may be, equal to the proceeds of all such Swing Line Loans received by the Administrative Agent from the Swing Line Lender to be credited to the account of the Borrower at the Payment and Funding Office, or such other office of the Administrative Agent as may be designated in writing to the Borrower in the case of Swing Line Loans denominated in Patacas or HK Dollars.
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
D.           With respect to any outstanding Swing Line Loans, if (i) such Swing Line Loans shall be outstanding for more than four Business Days, (ii) any Event of Default or Potential Event of Default shall occur and be continuing on a date such Swing Line Loans are outstanding, or (iii) the Swing Line Lender delivers to the Administrative Agent (with a copy to the Borrower), no later than 11:00a.m. (Macau SAR time) at least one Business Day in advance of the proposed Funding Date, a notice (which shall be deemed to be a Borrowing Notice given by Borrower) requesting that each Lender holding a Revolving Loan Commitment make Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans to the Borrower on such Funding Date in an amount equal to the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of such outstanding Swing Line Loans (in each case, the “Refunded Swing Line Loans”), then (x) in the case of the foregoing clauses (i) and (ii), the Swing Line Lender shall be deemed to have delivered a Borrowing Notice in accordance with clause (iii) and (y) the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrower and each Revolving Loan Lender of the amount requested, each Revolving Loan Lender shall deposit in an account specified by the Swing Line Lender its Pro Rata Share of the amount so requested in same day funds and such funds shall be applied by the Swing Line Lender to repay the Refunded Swing Line Loans.  Anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, (1) the proceeds of such Revolving Loans made by the Lenders other than the Swing Line Lender shall be immediately delivered by the Administrative Agent to the Swing Line Lender (and not to the Borrower) and applied to repay a corresponding portion of the Refunded Swing Line Loans and (2) on the day such Revolving Loans are made, the Swing Line Lender’s Pro Rata Share of the Refunded Swing Line Loans shall be deemed to be paid with the proceeds of a Revolving Loan made by Swing Line Lender to the Borrower in the amount of the Dollar Equivalent of such Pro Rata Share, and such portion of the Swing Line Loans deemed to be so paid shall no longer be outstanding as Swing Line Loans and shall no longer be due under the Swing Line Note of the Swing Line Lender but shall instead constitute part of the Swing Line Lender’s outstanding Revolving Loans to the Borrower and shall be due under the Revolving Loan Note issued by the Borrower to the Swing Line Lender.  The Borrower hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent and the Swing Line Lender to charge the Borrower’s accounts with the Administrative Agent and the Swing Line Lender (up to the amount available in each such account) in order to immediately pay the Swing Line Lender the amount of the Refunded Swing Line Loans to the extent the proceeds of such Revolving Loans made by Lenders holding Revolving Loan Commitments, including the Revolving Loans deemed to be made by the Swing Line Lender, are not sufficient to repay in full the Refunded Swing Line Loans.  If any portion of any such amount paid (or deemed to be paid) to the Swing Line Lender should be recovered by or on behalf of the Borrower from the Swing Line Lender in bankruptcy, by assignment for the benefit of creditors or otherwise, the loss of the amount so recovered shall be ratably shared among all Lenders.
 
Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, (1) each Lender’s obligation to make Revolving Loans for the purpose of repaying any Refunded Swing Line Loans pursuant to the preceding paragraph shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including without limitation (A) any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Lender may have against the Swing Line Lender, any Loan Party or any other Person for any reason whatsoever; (B) the occurrence or continuation of a Potential Event of Default or Event of Default; (C) any adverse change in the business, operations, properties, assets, condition (financial or otherwise) or prospects of any Loan Party; (D) any breach of this Agreement or any other Loan Document by any party thereto; or (E) any other circumstance, happening or event whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing; and (2) the Swing
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Line Lender shall not be obligated to make any Swing Line Loans (A) if it has elected not to do so after the occurrence and during the continuation of a Potential Event of Default or Event of Default or (B) at a time when any Lender is a Defaulting Lender unless the Swing Line Lender has entered into arrangements satisfactory to it and the Borrower to eliminate the Swing Line Lender’s risk with respect to the Defaulting Lender’s participation in such Swing Line Loan, including by cash collateralizing such Defaulting Lender’s Pro Rata Share of the outstanding Swing Line Loans.
 
2.11           Refinancing Amendments.  The Borrower may obtain, from any Lender or any Affiliates thereof or any other Person (other than a natural Person), Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness in respect of all or any portion of the Loans or Commitments then outstanding under this Agreement (which for purposes of this subsection 2.11 will be deemed to include any then outstanding New Term Loans, New Term Loan Commitments, New Revolving Loans, New Revolving Loan Commitments, Other Loans or Other Commitments), in the form of Other Loans or Other Commitments in each case pursuant to a Refinancing Amendment.  Any Other Loans may participate on a pro rata basis or on a less than pro rata basis (but not on a greater than pro rata basis) in any voluntary or mandatory prepayments hereunder, as specified in the applicable Refinancing Amendment, and such Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness may have such pricing and optional prepayment terms as may be agreed by the Borrower and the lenders thereof.  The effectiveness of any Refinancing Amendment shall be subject to the satisfaction or waiver on the date thereof of each of the conditions set forth in subsection 4.2 and, to the extent reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent, receipt by the Administrative Agent of customary legal opinions, board resolutions, officers’ certificates and/or reaffirmation agreements generally consistent with those delivered on the Restatement Date under subsection 8 of the Amendment Agreement (which in the case of legal opinions, take into account changes to such legal opinions resulting from a change in law, change in fact or change to counsel’s form of opinion reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent).  Each Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness incurred under this subsection 2.11 shall (i) be in an aggregate principal amount that is not less than $50,000,000 (or $10,000,000, in the case of revolving loans) and (ii) (x) with respect to any Other Loans or Other Commitments in the case of any Revolving Loans or Revolving Loan Commitments being refinanced, will have a maturity date that is not prior to the Revolving Loan Maturity Date and (y) with respect to any Other Loans or Other Commitments in the case of any Term Loans being refinanced, will have a maturity date that is not prior to the applicable Term Loan Maturity Date of, and will have a weighted average life to maturity that is not shorter than, the Term Loans being refinanced; provided that the terms and conditions applicable to such Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness may provide for any additional or different financial or other covenants or other provisions that are agreed between the Borrower and the lenders thereof and applicable only during periods after the applicable Maturity Date that is in effect on the date such Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness is issued, incurred or obtained.  Any Refinancing Amendment may provide for the issuance of letters of credit for the account of the Borrower or other Loan Parties or the provision to the Borrower of swing line loans pursuant to any Other Commitments established thereby, in each case, on terms substantially equivalent to the terms applicable to Letters of Credit and Swing Line Loans with the existing Revolving Credit Facility.  The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender as to the effectiveness of each Refinancing Amendment.  Each of the parties hereto hereby agrees that, upon the effectiveness of any Refinancing Amendment, this Agreement and the other Loan Documents may be amended pursuant to a Refinancing
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Amendment without the consent of any other Lenders to the extent (but only to the extent) necessary to reflect the existence and terms of the Credit Agreement Refinancing Indebtedness incurred pursuant thereto (including any amendments necessary to treat the Loans and Commitments subject thereto as Other Loans and/or Other Commitments).  Any Refinancing Amendment may, without the consent of any other Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to effect the provisions of this subsection 2.11 and the Lenders hereby expressly authorize the Administrative Agent to enter into any such Refinancing Amendment.  This subsection 2.11 shall supersede any other provisions in this Agreement (including subsections 2.7 and subsection 10.6) to the contrary.
 
2.12           Defaulting Lender.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then during any Default Period with respect to such Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender shall be deemed not to be a “Lender” for purposes of voting on any matters (including, but not limited to, any amendment, waiver or consent, provided that such Defaulting Lender’s consent shall be required in connection with any amendment, waiver, consent or other modification of this Agreement that would to the extent that such modification would increase the amount of or extend the maturity of such Defaulting Lender’s Commitments hereunder) with respect to any provision of the Loan Documents that requires the approval of Requisite Lenders or all affected lenders.  During any Default Period with respect to a Defaulting Lender (a) fees shall cease to accrue on the unfunded portion of the commitment of such Defaulting Lender pursuant to subsection 2.3; (b) to the extent permitted by applicable law, any amounts that would otherwise be payable to such Defaulting Lender with respect to its Loans and Commitments under the Loan Documents (including, without limitation, voluntary and mandatory prepayments, interest and fees) may, in lieu of being distributed to such Defaulting Lender, at the written direction of the Borrower to the Administrative Agent, be retained by the Administrative Agent and applied in the following order of priority: first, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent and to collateralize indemnification and reimbursement obligations of such Defaulting Lender in an amount reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent, second, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Swing Line Lender, third, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Issuing Lender, fourth, to the funding of any Loan in respect of which the Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, fifth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Borrower as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Borrower against the Defaulting Lender as a result of the Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement, and sixth, to the payment
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
of the Term Loans and Revolving Loans of other Lenders (but not to the Loans of such Defaulting Lender) as if such Defaulting Lender had funded all Defaulted Loans of such Defaulting Lender; (c) (i) such Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment and outstanding Revolving Loans and such Defaulting Lender’s Pro Rata Share of the Letter of Credit Usage shall be excluded for purposes of calculating the Revolving Loan commitment fee payable to Lenders in respect of any day during any Default Period with respect to such Defaulting Lender, and such Defaulting Lender shall not be entitled to receive any Revolving Loan commitment fee pursuant to subsection 2.3 with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment in respect of any Default Period with respect to such Defaulting Lender (and the Borrower shall not be required to pay any such fee that otherwise would have been required to have been paid to that Defaulting Lender) and (ii) such Defaulting Lender’s New Term Loan Commitments and outstanding Term Loans shall be excluded for purposes of calculating the Term Loan commitment fee payable to Lenders in respect of any day during any Default Period with respect to such Defaulting Lender (and the Borrower shall not be required to pay any such fee that otherwise would have been required to have been paid to that Defaulting Lender); and (d) the Total Utilization of Revolving Loan Commitments as at any date of determination shall be calculated as if such Defaulting Lender had funded all Defaulted Loans of such Defaulting Lender. Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender shall be deemed paid to and redirected by that Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto. No Commitment of any Lender shall be increased or otherwise affected, and, except as otherwise expressly provided in this subsection 2.12, performance by Borrower of its obligations hereunder and the other Loan Documents shall not be excused or otherwise modified as a result of any Lender becoming a Defaulting Lender or the operation of this subsection 2.12.  The rights and remedies against a Defaulting Lender under this subsection 2.12 are in addition to other rights and remedies which Borrower may have against such Defaulting Lender as a result of it becoming a Defaulting Lender and which Administrative Agent or any Lender may have against such Defaulting Lender with respect thereto.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing contained in this subsection 2.12 shall alter in any way the Borrower’s obligations to repay any Defaulting Lender for Loans that it has actually funded.  The Administrative Agent shall not be required to ascertain or inquire as to the existence of any Funds Defaulting Lender or Insolvency Defaulting Lender.
 
2.13           Removal of Defaulting Lender.  Anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, in the event that (i) any Lender shall become a Defaulting Lender, (ii) the
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Default Period for such Defaulting Lender shall remain in effect, and (iii) such Defaulting Lender shall fail to cure the default as a result of which it has become a Defaulting Lender within five Business Days after Borrower’s request that it cure such default; then, with respect to each such Defaulting Lender (the “Terminated Lender”), the Borrower may, by giving written notice to the Administrative Agent and any Terminated Lender of its election to do so, elect to cause such Terminated Lender (and such Terminated Lender hereby irrevocably agrees) to assign its outstanding Loans and its Commitments, if any, in full to one or more Eligible Assignees (each a “Replacement Lender”) in accordance with the provisions of subsection 10.1 and the Borrower shall pay the fees, if any, payable thereunder in connection with any such assignment from an Insolvency Defaulting Lender, and the Funds Defaulting Lender (if not also an Insolvency Defaulting Lender) shall pay the fees, if any, payable thereunder in connection with any such assignment from such Defaulting Lender; provided, (x) on the date of such assignment, the Replacement Lender shall, unless otherwise agreed by such Terminated Lender, pay to such Terminated Lender an amount equal to the sum of (1) an amount equal to the principal of, and all accrued interest on, all outstanding Loans of the Terminated Lender, (2) an amount equal to all unreimbursed drawings that have been funded by such Terminated Lender, together with all then unpaid interest with respect thereto at such time and (3) an amount equal to all accrued, but theretofore unpaid fees owing to such Terminated Lender pursuant to subsection 2.3; (y) on the date of such assignment, Borrower shall pay any amounts payable to such Terminated Lender pursuant to subsection 2.6D and subsection 2.7 or otherwise then due and payable to such Terminated Lender under any Loan Document as if it were a prepayment; provided, Borrower may not make such election with respect to any Terminated Lender that is also an Issuing Lender unless, prior to the effectiveness of such election, Borrower shall have caused each outstanding Letter of Credit issued thereby to be cancelled or issued by a new Issuing Lender.  Upon the prepayment of all amounts owing to any Terminated Lender and the termination of such Terminated Lender’s Commitments, if any, such Terminated Lender shall no longer constitute a “Lender” for purposes hereof; provided, any rights of such Terminated Lender to indemnification hereunder shall survive as to such Terminated Lender.  Each Lender agrees that if the Borrower exercises its option hereunder to cause an assignment by such Lender as a Terminated Lender, such Lender shall, promptly after receipt of written notice of such election, execute and deliver all documentation necessary to effectuate such assignment in accordance with subsection 10.1.  In the event that a Lender does not comply with the requirements of the immediately preceding sentence within one Business Day after receipt of such notice, each Lender hereby authorizes and directs the Administrative Agent to execute and deliver such documentation as may be required to give effect to an assignment in accordance with subsection 10.1 on behalf of a Terminated Lender and any such documentation so executed by the Administrative Agent shall be effective for purposes of documenting an assignment pursuant to subsection 10.1. For the avoidance of doubt, any such replacement shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any rights that the Borrower, the Administrative Agent or any other Lender shall have against the replaced Lender.

Credit) or five Business Days (in the case of Commercial Letters of Credit), or in each case such shorter period as may be agreed to by the Issuing Lender in any particular instance, in advance of the proposed date of issuance.  The Issuance Notice shall specify (a) the proposed date of issuance (which shall be a Business Day), (b) whether the Letter of Credit is to be a Standby Letter of Credit or a Commercial Letter of Credit, (c) the currency and face amount of the Letter of Credit, (d) the expiration date of the Letter of Credit, (e) the name and address of the beneficiary, (f) either the verbatim text of the proposed Letter of Credit or the proposed terms and conditions thereof, including a precise description of any documents to be presented by the beneficiary which, if presented by the beneficiary prior to the expiration date of the Letter of Credit, would require the Issuing Lender to make payment under the Letter of Credit and (g) the applicable Issuing Lender; provided that the Issuing Lender, in its reasonable discretion, may require changes in the text of the proposed Letter of Credit or any such documents; and provided, further, that no Letter of Credit shall require payment against a conforming draft to be made thereunder on the same business day (under the laws of the jurisdiction in which the office of the Issuing Lender to which such draft is required to be presented is located) that such draft is presented if such presentation is made after 10:00 a.m. (in the time zone of such office of the Issuing Lender) on such business day.
 
The Borrower shall notify the applicable Issuing Lender (and the Administrative Agent, if Administrative Agent is not such Issuing Lender) prior to the issuance of any Letter of Credit in the event that any of the matters to which the Borrower is required to certify in the applicable Issuance Notice is no longer true and correct as of the proposed date of issuance of such Letter of Credit, and upon the issuance of any Letter of Credit the Borrower shall be deemed to have re-certified, as of the date of such issuance, as to the matters to which the Borrower is required to certify in the applicable Issuance Notice.

For purposes of calculating any fees payable under clauses (i) and (ii) of this subsection 3.2, the daily amount available to be drawn under any Letter of Credit shall be determined in Dollars (with the amount available to be drawn under each Letter of Credit denominated in HK Dollars or Patacas to be converted into Dollars for purposes of this subsection 3.2 at the Restatement Date FX Rate) as of the close of business on any date of determination.  Promptly upon receipt by the Administrative Agent of any amount described in clause (i)(b) or (ii)(b) of this subsection 3.2, the Administrative Agent shall distribute to each Lender its Pro Rata Share of such amount.
 
3.3           Drawings and Reimbursement of Amounts Paid Under Letters of Credit.
 
A.           Responsibility of Issuing Lender With Respect to Drawings.  In determining whether to honor any drawing under any Letter of Credit by the beneficiary thereof, the Issuing Lender shall be responsible only to examine the documents delivered under such Letter of Credit with reasonable care so as to ascertain whether they appear on their face to be in accordance with the terms and conditions of such Letter of Credit.
 
B.           Reimbursement by the Borrower of Amounts Paid Under Letters of Credit.  In the event an Issuing Lender has determined to honor a drawing under a Letter of Credit issued by it, such Issuing Lender shall immediately notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, and the Borrower shall reimburse such Issuing Lender on or before the Business Day immediately following the date on which such drawing is honored (the “Reimbursement Date”) in an amount in Dollars and in same day funds equal to the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of such honored drawing.  In the case of any such payment in Dollars of a Letter of Credit denominated in another currency, the Issuing Lender shall notify the Company of the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of the drawing promptly following the determination thereof.  Anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, unless the Borrower shall have notified Administrative Agent and such Issuing Lender prior to 3:00p.m. (Macau SAR time) on the date such drawing is honored that the Borrower intends to reimburse such Issuing Lender for the amount of such honored drawing with funds other than the proceeds of Revolving Loans, the Borrower shall be deemed to have given a timely Borrowing Notice to the Administrative Agent requesting the Revolving Loan Lenders to make Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans on the Reimbursement Date in an amount in Dollars equal to the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of such honored drawing and the Revolving Loan Lenders shall, on the Reimbursement Date, make Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans in an amount equal to the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of such honored drawing, the proceeds of which shall be applied directly by Agent to reimburse such Issuing Lender for the amount of such honored drawing; and provided, further, that if for any reason proceeds of Revolving Loans are not received by such Issuing Lender on the Reimbursement Date in an amount equal to the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of such honored drawing, the Borrower shall reimburse such Issuing Lender, on demand, in an amount in same day funds equal to the excess of the amount of such honored drawing over the aggregate amount of such Revolving Loans, if any, which are so received.  Nothing in this subsection 3.3B shall be deemed to relieve any Lender from its obligation to make Revolving Loans on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, and the Borrower shall retain any and all rights it may

In furtherance and extension and not in limitation of the specific provisions set forth in the first paragraph of this subsection 3.5B, any action taken or omitted by any Issuing Lender under or in connection with the Letters of Credit issued by it or any documents and certificates delivered thereunder, if taken or omitted in good faith, shall not put such Issuing Lender under any resulting liability to the Borrower.
 
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this subsection 3.5, the Borrower shall retain any and all rights it may have against any Issuing Lender for any liability arising solely out of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Issuing Lender, as determined by a final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction.

Lender or participations therein purchased by any Lender or (as the case may be) any of its direct or indirect parents; or
 
(iii)             imposes any other condition (other than with respect to a Tax matter) on or affecting such Issuing Lender or Lender (or its applicable lending or letter of credit office or (as the case may be) its direct and indirect parents) regarding this Section 3 or any Letter of Credit or any participation therein;
 
and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Issuing Lender or Lender or (as the case may be) any of its direct or indirect parents of agreeing to issue, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit or agreeing to purchase, purchasing or maintaining any participation therein or to reduce any amount received or receivable by such Issuing Lender or Lender (or its applicable lending or letter of credit office or (as the case may be) any of its direct or indirect parents) with respect thereto; then, in any case, the Borrower shall promptly pay to such Issuing Lender or Lender or (as the case may be) any of its direct or indirect parents, upon receipt of the statement referred to in the next sentence, such additional amount or amounts as may be necessary to compensate such Issuing Lender or Lender or (as the case may be) any of its direct and indirect parents for any such increased cost or reduction in amounts received or receivable hereunder.  Such Issuing Lender or Lender or (as the case may be) any of its direct and indirect parents shall deliver to the Borrower a written statement, setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for calculating the additional amounts owed to such Issuing Lender or Lender or (as the case may be) any of its direct and indirect parents under this subsection 3.6, which statement shall be prima facie evidence of the matters set forth therein.
