         legal, valid and binding obligation of each Credit Party, enforceable
         in accordance with its terms; and

                           (g) the execution, delivery and performance of this
         Amendment will not violate any law, statute or regulation, or any order
         or decree of any Governmental Authority, or conflict with, or result in
         the breach of, or constitute a default under, any material contract by
         which any Credit Party is bound or the articles of incorporation or
         bylaws of any Credit Party. After giving effect to this Amendment, all
         of the Obligations will continue to constitute "Lender Indebtedness"
         under and as defined in the Subordination Agreement, dated as of
         February 2, 1999, relating to the Trade Lien.

                  7.       EFFECT OF AMENDMENT. Except as specifically provided
herein, this Amendment does not in any way affect or impair the terms,
conditions and other provisions of the Credit Agreement or the other Loan
Documents, and all such terms, conditions and other provisions of such documents
shall remain in full force and effect. The amendments and waiver contained
herein are limited to the specific provisions and circumstances described and
shall not be deemed to (i) be a waiver or amendment of any other term or
condition of the Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document or (ii) prejudice
any rights not specifically addressed herein which the Administrative Agent, the
Collateral Agent, the Tranche C Agent, any Lender or any other Secured Party may
now have or may have in the future under the Credit Agreement or any other Loan
Document.

                  8.       COUNTERPARTS. This Amendment may be executed in any
number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, and all of
which taken together shall be deemed to constitute one and the same instrument.
Delivery of an executed signature page of this Amendment by facsimile
transmission shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart
hereof.

                  9.       SEVERABILITY. Any provision of this Amendment that is
prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction for any reason shall, as to such
jurisdiction, be ineffective to

the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the
remaining provisions hereof, and any such prohibition or unenforceability in any
jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any
other jurisdiction. If this Amendment is deemed invalid or unenforceable with
respect to any Credit Party which is a party hereto, this Amendment shall remain
valid and enforceable with respect to all other Credit Parties party hereto.

                  10.      GOVERNING LAW. THIS AMENDMENT SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN
ACCORDANCE WITH AND GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK WITHOUT GIVING
EFFECT TO THE CHOICE OF LAW PRINCIPLES THEREOF.

                  11.      HEADINGS. Section headings are included herein for
convenience of reference only and shall not constitute a part of this Amendment
for any other purpose.

                  12.      EXPENSES. Whether or not the transactions hereby
contemplated shall be consummated, the Borrower and the other Credit Parties
jointly and severally agree to pay in immediately available funds all reasonable
out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent, the Collateral
Agent, the Tranche B Agent, the Tranche C Agent and any participants in the
Tranche C Loans (including but not limited to the reasonable fees and
disbursements of Latham & Watkins, special counsel for the Administrative Agent,
the Collateral Agent and the Tranche B Agent, and Riemer & Braunstein LLP,
special counsel to the Tranche C Agent), any local counsel to the Tranche C
Lenders and counsel to such participants, in connection with the preparation,
negotiation, execution, delivery and administration of this Amendment and the
Mortgage Documents. Such payments shall be made at the time of funding of the
Tranche C Loans. Whether or not the transactions hereby contemplated shall be
consummated, the Borrower and the other Credit Parties agree to reimburse the
Tranche C Agent and the Tranche C Lenders for the Fees and expenses required by
the Tranche C Fee Letter and the reimbursement provisions thereof are hereby
incorporated herein by reference. Payment of all fees and expenses due hereunder
shall be an additional condition precedent to the effectiveness of this
Amendment. The fees and expenses payable hereunder are in addition to those
payable by the Borrower or the other Credit Parties under any other Loan
Document.

                            [SIGNATURE PAGES FOLLOW]

                  IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this
