BACKGROUND STATEMENT
WHEREAS, Borrowers have entered into that certain Revolving Credit and Term Loan Agreement, dated as of January 19, 2010 (as may have been and may be subsequently amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time-to-time, the “Credit Agreement”; all capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Credit Agreement), with the Administrative Agent, the issuing bank thereunder and the lenders from time to time party thereto (the “Lenders”); and
WHEREAS, Guarantors and Administrative Agent have entered into that certain Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement, dated as of January 19, 2010 (as may have been and may be subsequently amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time-to-time, the “Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement”); and
WHEREAS, Borrowers and Guarantors have entered into various other instruments, agreements, documents and writings in connection with the Credit Agreement and the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement (as may have been and may be subsequently amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time-to-time, collectively, the “Loan Documents”); and
WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 6.3 of the Credit Agreement, Borrowers are required to maintain, as of the last day of each Fiscal Quarter, Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA for the four Fiscal Quarters then ended of not less than $22,500,000; and
WHEREAS, Borrowers have failed to maintain the required Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA for the four Fiscal Quarters ending March 31, 2014, in accordance with Section 6.3, resulting in an Event of Default under the Credit Agreement (the “Minimum Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA Covenant Default”, and together with any other Default or Event of Default that exists solely as a result of the Minimum Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA Covenant Default, collectively, the “Specified Defaults”); and
WHEREAS, Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank and the Lenders, as a result of the Specified Defaults, are legally entitled to, among other things, (i) pursue and enforce the remedies more specifically set forth in the Loan Documents with respect to the collateral securing the Loans more specifically described in the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents (the “Collateral”), (ii) pursue and enforce the remedies more specifically set forth in the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement and (iii) pursue and enforce any and all of its remedies against Borrowers and Guarantors as are otherwise more specifically set forth in the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents, or as is otherwise permitted under applicable law or equity (collectively, the “Remedies”); and
WHEREAS, Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank and the Lenders have agreed to (i) provide a one-time waiver of the Specified Defaults and (ii) modify certain provisions of the Credit Agreement, as




more specifically set forth herein, provided, however, that Borrowers and Guarantors fully comply with the provisions of this Amendment and Waiver; and
WHEREAS, Guarantors are willing to reaffirm the covenants, representations and warranties set forth in the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement.
NOW, THEREFORE, for and in consideration of the above premises and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which hereby is acknowledged by the parties hereto, Borrowers, Guarantors, Administrative Agent, the sole Lender and Issuing Bank agree as follows:
1.Acknowledgement by Borrowers and Guarantors of Specified Defaults. Borrowers and Guarantors hereby acknowledge the existence of the Specified Defaults, and the right of Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank and the Lenders to pursue and enforce the Remedies.
2.Waiver. Upon Borrowers’ and Guarantors’ completion of the Conditions Precedent set forth in Paragraph 3 below, the Specified Defaults shall be deemed waived by Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank and the Lenders.
3.Conditions Precedent. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Amendment and Waiver, and without affecting in any manner the rights of Administrative Agent, the sole Lender or the Issuing Bank hereunder, it is understood and agreed that this Amendment and Waiver shall not become effective, and the Loan Parties shall have no rights under this Amendment and Waiver, until: (i) Administrative Agent shall have received payment of an amendment and waiver fee in the amount of $7,500.00, (ii) Arnall Golden Gregory LLP, counsel to Administrative Agent, shall have received payment of its reasonable fees, charges and disbursements incurred in connection with this Amendment and Waiver in the amount of $3,750.00, and (iii) fully executed counterparts to this Amendment and Waiver from the Loan Parties.
4.Modification of Credit Agreement and Loan Documents. The Credit Agreement is hereby amended, effective as of the date hereof, as follows:

(ii)
By deleting Section 5.1(l) in its entirety and replacing it with the following:

(iii)
By deleting Section 7.4(h) in its entirety and replacing it with the following:

2

6350634v4


purchases and repurchases do not exceed $20,000,000 in the aggregate in any Fiscal Year;”
(iv)By deleting clause (iii) of Section 7.5 in its entirety (up to but not including the immediately succeeding proviso) and replacing it with the following:
“(iii) the redemption, purchase or repurchase of PRGX’s common stock by PRGX pursuant to any open-market purchases, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise;”
Without limiting the generality of clause (i) of the sixth sentence of Section 1.4 of the Credit Agreement (or any corresponding provision of any other Loan Document), the terms of the Loan Documents are hereby amended, effective as of the date hereof, so that all references therein to the Credit Agreement shall refer to Credit Agreement as amended herein.
5.Ratification and Reaffirmation. Except as herein expressly modified or amended, all the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents are hereby ratified, affirmed, and approved. As of the date hereof, Borrowers hereby reaffirm and restate each and every warranty and representation set forth in any Loan Document, in each case except to the extent such warranty or representation expressly relates to an earlier date.
6.Reaffirmation of Guaranty. Guarantors hereby ratify, confirm, reaffirm and covenant that the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement which they have executed is validly existing and binding against each of them under the terms of such Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement. Guarantors hereby reaffirm and restate, as of the date hereof, all covenants, representations and warranties set forth in the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement, and specifically reaffirm that each of their obligations under the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement extend and apply for all purposes to the Credit Agreement as amended hereby.
7.No Novation. The parties hereto hereby acknowledge and agree that this Amendment and Waiver shall not constitute a novation of the indebtedness evidenced by any of the Loan Documents, and further that the terms and provisions of the Loan Documents shall remain valid and in full force and effect except as be herein modified and amended.
8.For purposes of this Paragraph 8, the term “Borrower Parties” shall mean Borrowers and Guarantors collectively and the term “Lender Parties” shall mean Administrative Agent, Lenders and Issuing Bank, and shall include each of their respective predecessors, successors and assigns, and each past and present, direct and indirect, parent, subsidiary and affiliated entity of each of the foregoing, and each past and present employee, agent, attorney‑in‑fact, attorney‑at‑law, representative, officer, director, shareholder, partner and joint venturer of each of the foregoing, and each heir, executor, administrator, successor and assign of each of the foregoing; references in this paragraph to “any” of such parties shall be deemed to mean “any one or more” of such parties; and references in this sentence to “each of the foregoing” shall mean and refer cumulatively to each party referred to in this sentence up to the point of such reference. Each Borrower and each Guarantor hereby acknowledges, represents and agrees: that, as of the date hereof, Borrowers and Guarantors have no defenses, setoffs, claims, counterclaims or causes of action of any kind or nature whatsoever with respect to the Credit Agreement, the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement, the other Loan Documents or the Obligations, or with respect to any other documents or instruments now or heretofore evidencing, securing or in any way relating to the Obligations (all of said defenses, setoffs, claims, counterclaims or causes of action being hereinafter referred to as “Loan Related Claims”); that, to the extent that Borrowers or Guarantors may be deemed to have any Loan Related Claims as of the date hereof, Borrowers and Guarantors do hereby expressly waive, release and relinquish any and all such Loan Related Claims, whether or not known to or suspected by Borrowers and

Guarantors; that Borrowers and Guarantors shall not institute or cause to be instituted any legal action or proceeding of any kind based upon any Loan Related Claims; and that Borrowers and Guarantors shall indemnify, hold harmless and defend all Lender Parties from and against any and all Loan Related Claims and any and all losses, damages, liabilities and related reasonable expenses (including reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for any Lender Parties) suffered or incurred by any Lender Parties as a result of any assertion or allegation by any Borrower Parties of any Loan Related Claims or as a result of any legal action related thereto, provided that such indemnity shall not , as to any Lender Parties, be available to the extent that such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or related expenses are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment to have resulted from (i) the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Lender Parties or (ii) a claim brought by any Borrower or Guarantor against any Lender Parties for breach in bad faith of such Lender Parties’ obligations under any Loan Document. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Paragraph 8, Borrowers and Guarantors make no such releases, representations, warranties, standstills or agreements with respect to any future Loan Related Claims.
9.Authority. Each Borrower and Guarantor hereby represents and warrants that the execution, delivery and performance of this Amendment and Waiver by it has been duly authorized by all necessary actions of each Borrower and Guarantor, and do not and will not violate any provision of law, or any writ, order or decree of any court or governmental authority or agency or any provision of the organizational documents of any Borrower or Guarantor, and do not and will not, with the passage of time or the giving of notice, result in a breach of, or constitute a default or require any consent under, or result in the creation of any Lien upon any property or assets of any Borrower or Guarantor pursuant to, any law, regulation, instrument or agreement to which any Borrower or Guarantor is a party or by which any Borrower or any Guarantor or any of their respective properties may be subject, bound or affected.
10.No Waiver or Implication. Borrowers and Guarantors hereby agree that, except as expressly set forth herein, nothing herein shall constitute a waiver by Administrative Agent or any Lender of any default, whether known or unknown, which may now exist under the Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document. Borrowers and Guarantors hereby further agree that no action, inaction or agreement by Administrative Agent or any Lender, including, without limitation, any extension, indulgence, waiver, consent or agreement of modification which may have occurred or have been granted or entered into (or which is now occurring or is being granted or entered into hereunder or otherwise) with respect to nonpayment of the Loans or any portion thereof, or with respect to matters involving security for the Loans, or with respect to any other matter relating to the Loans, shall require or imply any future extension, indulgence, waiver, consent or agreement by Administrative Agent or any Lender. Borrowers and Guarantors hereby acknowledge and agree that Administrative Agent and Lenders have made no agreement, and are in no way obligated, to grant any future extension, indulgence, waiver or consent with respect to the Loans or any matter relating to the Loans.
11.No Release of Collateral. Borrowers and Guarantors further acknowledge and agree that this Amendment and Waiver shall in no way occasion a release of any collateral held by Administrative Agent as security to or for the Loans, and that all collateral held by Administrative Agent as security to or for the Loans shall continue to secure the Loans.
12.Strict Compliance. Except as expressly modified hereby, Borrowers and Guarantors are hereby notified that Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank and the Lenders demand that Borrowers and Guarantors strictly comply with the terms of this Amendment and Waiver, the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents, in each case, as amended hereby. This notice evidences the intent of Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank and the Lenders to rely on the exact terms of this Amendment and Waiver and the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents, in each case, as amended hereby.
