SECTION 2. AMOUNT AND TERMS OF THE COMMITMENTS 2.1 The Commitments. (a) Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, each Bank severally agrees to make loans ("Loans") to the Company from time to time during the Commitment Period in an aggregate principal amount at any one time outstanding not to exceed such Bank's Transferred Commitment at such time set opposite such Bank's name in the most recent effective notice delivered by Chrysler pursuant to subsection 2.17 of the Chrysler Agreement. During the Commitment Period, the Company may use such Commitment by borrowing, prepaying or repaying the Loans of such Bank, in whole or in part, and reborrowing, all in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof. (b) Loans hereunder may be Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Loans, or part Base Rate Loans and part Eurodollar Loans, as determined by the Company and notified to the Agent in accordance with subsection 2.2, provided that no Eurodollar Loans shall be made after the date which is seven days prior to the Termination Date. 2.2 Procedure for Borrowing. (a) The Company may borrow under the Commitments during the Commitment Period on any Business Day, provided that the Company shall give the Agent irrevocable notice (which notice must be received by the Agent prior to 10:00 A.M., New York City time, (i) three Business Days prior to the requested Borrowing Date, if all or any part of the requested Loans are to be initially Eurodollar Loans, and (ii) one Business Day prior to the requested Borrowing Date, otherwise) specifying (A) the amount to be borrowed, (B) the requested Borrowing Date, (C) whether the borrowing is to be a Eurodollar Loan or a Base Rate Loan or a combination thereof, and (D) if such borrowing is to be entirely or partly a Eurodollar Loan, the length of the Interest Period for such Eurodollar Loan. Upon receipt of such notice, the Agent shall promptly notify each Bank thereof. Not later than 2:00 P.M., New York City time, on the Borrowing Date specified in such notice, each Bank shall (subject to subsection 9.3(b)) deposit in its Clearing Account an amount in immediately available funds equal to the amount of the Loan to be made by such Bank. The Agent shall, pursuant to subsection 9.3(a), cause such amount to be withdrawn from each such Clearing Account and shall make the aggregate amount so withdrawn available to the Company by depositing the proceeds thereof in the account of the Company with the Agent on the date such Loans are made for transmittal by the Agent upon the Company's request. Each borrowing pursuant to the Commitments shall be in an aggregate principal amount of the lesser of (i) $25,000,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof or (ii) the then Available Transferred Commitments, provided that, with respect to any borrowing of Eurodollar Loans, after giving effect thereto, subsection 2.6 shall not have been contravened. (b) Unless the Agent shall have received notice from a Bank prior to a Borrowing Date that such Bank will not make available to the Agent such Bank's ratable portion of such borrowing through such Bank's Clearing Account, the Agent may assume that such Bank has made such portion available to the Agent through such Bank's Clearing Account on the date of such borrowing in accordance with subsection 2.2(a) and the Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Company on such date a corresponding amount. If the Agent does, in such circumstances, make available to the Company such amount, such Bank shall within three Business Days following such Borrowing Date make such ratable portion available to the Agent, together with interest thereon for each day from and including such Borrowing Date that such ratable portion was not made available, to but excluding the date such Bank makes its share of such borrowing available to the Agent, at the Effective Federal Funds Rate. If such amount is so made available, such payment to the Agent shall constitute such Bank's Loan on such Borrowing Date for all purposes of this Agreement. If such amount is not so made available to the Agent, then the Agent shall notify the Company of such failure and on the fourth Business Day following such Borrowing Date, the Company shall pay to the Agent such ratable portion, together with interest thereon for each day that the Company had the use of such ratable portion at the Effective Federal Funds Rate. Nothing contained in this subsection 2.2(b) shall relieve any Bank which has failed to make available its ratable portion of any borrowing hereunder from its obligation to do so in accordance with the terms hereof. (c) The failure of any Bank to make the Loan to be made by it on any Borrowing Date shall not relieve any other Bank of its obligation, if any, hereunder to make its Loan on such Borrowing Date, but no Bank shall be responsible for the failure of any other Bank to make the Loan to be made by such other Bank on such Borrowing Date. 2.3 Repayment of Outstanding Loans. The Company shall repay all outstanding Loans (together with all accrued unpaid interest thereon) on the Termination Date. 2.4 Evidence of Debt. (a) Each Bank shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice an account or accounts evidencing the indebtedness of the Company to the appropriate lending office of such Bank resulting from each Loan made by such lending office of such Bank from time to time, including the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid to such lending office of such Bank from time to time under this Agreement. (b) The Agent shall maintain the Register pursuant to subsection 9.7(f), and a subaccount for each Bank, in which Register and subaccounts (taken together) shall be recorded (i) the amount of each Loan made hereunder, the Type of each Loan made and the Interest Period (if any) applicable thereto, (ii) the amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from the Company to each Bank hereunder and (iii) the amount of any sum received by the Agent hereunder from the Company and each Bank's share thereof. (c) The entries made in the Register and accounts maintained pursuant to paragraphs (a) and (b) of this subsection 2.4 shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations of the Company therein recorded; provided, however, that the failure of any Bank or the Agent to maintain such account, such Register or such subaccount, as applicable, or any error therein, shall not in any manner affect the obligation of the Company to repay (with applicable interest) the Loans made to the Company by such Bank in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. 2.5 Prepayments. The Company may, at any time and from time to time, prepay the Loans hereunder, in whole or in part, without premium or penalty, upon prior notice to the Agent (which notice must be received by the Agent prior to 10:00 A.M., New York City time, (i) three Business Days prior to the repayment date in the case of Eurodollar Loans and (ii) one Business Day prior to the repayment date otherwise) specifying the date and amount of prepayment, and whether the prepayment is of Eurodollar Loans, Base Rate Loans or a combination thereof, and, if a combination thereof, the amount allocable to each, provided that, each prepayment of Eurodollar Loans on a day other than the last day of the related Interest Period shall require the payment of any amounts payable by the Company pursuant to subsection 2.15. Upon receipt of any such notice, the Agent shall promptly notify each Bank thereof. Any such notice shall be irrevocable and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified, together with accrued interest to such date on the amount prepaid. Partial prepayments shall be in an aggregate principal amount of $25,000,000 or a multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof, and after giving effect thereto subsection 2.6 shall not have been contravened. 2.6 Minimum Amount of Eurodollar Tranches. All borrowings, payments, prepayments, continuations and conversions hereunder shall be in such amounts and be made pursuant to such elections so that, after giving effect thereto, the aggregate principal amount of the Eurodollar Loans comprising any Eurodollar Tranche shall not be less than $50,000,000. 2.7 Interest Rate and Payment Dates. (a) Each Eurodollar Loan shall bear interest for each day during each Interest Period therefor on the unpaid principal amount thereof at a rate per annum equal to the Eurodollar Rate determined for such Interest Period in accordance with the terms hereof plus the Applicable Margin. (b) The Base Rate Loans shall bear interest for each day on the unpaid principal amount thereof, at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate determined for such day. (c) If all or a portion of (i) the principal amount of any Loan, (ii) any interest payable thereon or (iii) any other amount payable hereunder shall not be paid when due (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), such overdue amount shall bear interest at a rate per annum which is (x) in the case of overdue principal, the rate that would otherwise be applicable thereto pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this subsection 2.7 plus 1% or (y) in the case of any overdue interest or other amount, the rate described in subsection 2.7(b) plus 1%, in each case from the date of such non-payment to (but excluding) the date on which such amount is paid in full (as well after as before judgment). (d) Interest shall be payable in arrears (i) with respect to Eurodollar Loans having an Interest Period of three months or less, on the last day of such Interest Period, (ii) with respect to Eurodollar Loans having an Interest Period longer than three months, on each day which is three months, or a whole multiple thereof, after the first day of such Interest Period and the last day of such Interest Period, (iii) with respect to Base Rate Loans, on the last day of each March, June, September and December, and (iv) with respect to all Loans, upon each repayment, prepayment or conversion thereof; provided that interest accruing pursuant to paragraph (c) of this subsection shall be payable on demand. The amount of interest on any Eurodollar Loans to be paid on any date as specified above shall in each case be determined under the assumption that the Utilization for the Utilization Period(s) during which such interest accrued was less than 50%. On the first Business Day following the last day of each Excess Utilization Period, the Company shall pay to the Agent, for the benefit of the Banks, an additional amount of interest equal to the excess (if any) of (i) the amount of interest which accrued during such Utilization Period after giving effect to the actual Utilization for such Utilization Period (whether or not such accrued interest was actually payable during such Utilization Period) over (ii) the amount of interest which would have accrued during such Utilization Period if the Utilization during such Utilization Period had been less than 50%. 2.8 Mandatory Repayments. The Company, without notice or demand, shall immediately repay the Loans hereunder to the extent that the aggregate amount thereof exceeds the Commitments from time to time in effect. 2.9 Conversion and Continuation Options. (a) The Company may elect from time to time to convert Eurodollar Loans to Base Rate Loans, by giving the Agent at least two Business Days' prior irrevocable notice of such election, provided that any such conversion of Eurodollar Loans may only be made on the last day of an Interest Period with respect thereto. The Company may elect from time to time to convert Base Rate Loans to Eurodollar Loans by giving the Agent at least three Business Days' prior irrevocable notice of such election. Any such notice of conversion to Eurodollar Loans shall specify the length of the initial Interest Period or Interest Periods therefor. Upon receipt of any such notice the Agent shall promptly notify each Bank thereof. All or any part of outstanding Eurodollar Loans and Base Rate Loans may be converted as provided herein, provided that (i) no Base Rate Loan may be converted into a Eurodollar Loan when any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Agent has or the Required Banks have determined in its or their sole discretion that such conversion is not appropriate, (ii) any such conversion may only be made if, after giving effect thereto, subsection 2.6 shall not have been contravened and (iii) no Base Rate Loan may be converted into a Eurodollar Loan after the date that is seven days prior to the Termination Date. (b) Any Eurodollar Loans may be continued as such upon the expiration of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto by the Company giving irrevocable notice to the Agent, in accordance with the applicable provisions of the term "Interest Period" set forth in subsection 1.1, of the length of the next Interest Period to be applicable to such Loans, provided that no Eurodollar Loan may be continued as such (i) when any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Agent has or the Required Banks have determined in its or their sole discretion that such continuation is not appropriate, (ii) if, after giving effect thereto, subsection 2.6 would be contravened or (iii) after the date that is seven days prior to the Termination Date and provided, further, that if the Company shall fail to give any required notice as described above in this paragraph or if such continuation is not permitted pursuant to the preceding proviso such Loans shall be automatically converted to Base Rate Loans on the last day of such then expiring Interest Period. Upon receipt of any notice given by the Company pursuant to this subsection 2.9(b), the Agent shall promptly notify each Bank thereof. 2.10 Computation of Interest. (a) Interest (other than interest calculated on the basis of the Prime Rate) shall be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year, for the actual days elapsed. Interest calculated on the basis of the Prime Rate shall be calculated on the basis of a 365- (or 366-, as the case may be) day year for the actual days elapsed. The Agent shall, as soon as practicable, notify the Company and the Banks of each determination of the Eurodollar Rate with respect to Eurodollar Loans. Any change in the interest rate in respect of a Loan resulting from a change in the Base Rate or the Applicable Margin shall become effective as of the opening of business on the day on which a change in the Base Rate shall become effective or such Applicable Margin changes as provided herein, as the case may be. The Agent shall notify the Company and the Banks of the effective date and the amount of each such change in the Base Rate. (b) Each determination, pursuant to and in accordance with any provision of this Agreement, of an interest rate applicable to a Eurodollar Loan for any Interest Period by the Agent, and each determination by a Reference Bank of a rate with respect to a Eurodollar Loan for any Interest Period to be notified to the Agent pursuant to the definition of "Eurodollar Rate" shall be conclusive and binding on the Company and the Banks in the absence of manifest error. The Agent shall, at the request of the Company, deliver to the Company a statement showing any quotations given by the Reference Banks and the computations used by the Agent in determining any interest rate pursuant to subsection 2.7(a). (c) If any Reference Bank's Commitment shall terminate (otherwise than on termination of all the Commitments), or, as the case may be, Loans made by it hereunder are assigned, or prepaid or repaid (otherwise than on the ratable prepayment or repayment of the Loans among the Banks) for any reason whatsoever, such Reference Bank shall thereupon cease to be a Reference Bank and, if as a result of the foregoing, there shall be only one Reference Bank remaining, then the Agent (after consultation with the Company and the Banks) shall, as soon as practicable thereafter, by notice to the Company and the Banks, designate another Bank that is willing to act as a Reference Bank so that there shall at all times be at least two Reference Banks. In acting to so designate another Bank to serve as a Reference Bank, the Agent will use its best efforts to ensure that one Reference Bank will, at all times, be a Bank that has its headquarters office located outside the United States. (d) If any of the Reference Banks shall be unable or shall otherwise fail to provide notice of a rate to the Agent upon its request with respect to a Eurodollar Loan, the Eurodollar Rate shall be determined on the basis of rates provided in notices of the remaining Reference Banks. 2.11 Inability to Determine Eurodollar Rate. In the event that (a) the Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive and binding upon the Company) that by reason of circumstances affecting the relevant market, adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Eurodollar Rate in respect of any Eurodollar Loans, or (b) the Required Banks determine (which determination shall be conclusive and binding upon the Company) and shall notify the Agent that the rates of interest referred to in the definition of "Eurodollar Rate" as the basis upon which the rate of interest for Eurodollar Loans is to be determined do not adequately cover the cost to the Banks of making or maintaining Eurodollar Loans, in each case with respect to any proposed Loan that the Company has requested to be made as a Eurodollar Loan, the Agent shall forthwith give facsimile transmission or other written notice of such determination to the Company and the Banks at least one Business Day prior to the requested Borrowing Date for such Eurodollar Loan. If such notice is given, any requested borrowing of a Eurodollar Loan shall be made as a Base Rate Loan. Until such notice has been withdrawn by the Agent, no further Eurodollar Loans shall be made. 2.12 Pro Rata Treatment and Payments. (a) Each borrowing by the Company from the Banks and any reduction of the amount of the Commitments of the Banks hereunder (except for the reduction or termination of a particular Bank's Commitment pursuant to subsection 2.16) shall be made pro rata according to the amounts of the then existing Commitments. Each payment (including each prepayment) by the Company on account of principal and interest (except for payments to a particular Bank pursuant to subsection 2.13, 2.15, or 2.16), shall be made on a pro rata basis according to the amounts of the then outstanding Loans of the Banks hereunder. All payments (including prepayments) by the Company shall be made without setoff or counterclaim to the Agent for the account of the Banks at the office of the Agent referred to in subsection 9.2 in Dollars and in immediately available funds. The Agent shall promptly distribute such payments to each Bank entitled to receive a portion thereof by causing such Bank's portion of such payment to be deposited in such Bank's Clearing Account. If any payment hereunder (other than a payment in respect of a Eurodollar Loan) becomes due and payable on a day other than a Business Day, the maturity thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day. If any payment on a Eurodollar Loan becomes due and payable on a day other than a Business Day, the maturity thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day unless the result of such extension would be to extend such payment into another calendar month in which event such payment shall be made on the immediately preceding Business Day. In the case of any extension of any payment of principal pursuant to the preceding two sentences, interest thereon shall be payable at the then applicable rate during such extension. (b) Unless the Agent shall have received notice from the Company prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Banks hereunder that the Company will not make such payment in full, the Agent may assume that the Company has made such payment in full to the Agent on such date and the Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, cause to be distributed to each Bank on such due date an amount equal to the amount then due to such Bank. If and to the extent the Company shall not have so made such payment in full to the Agent, each Bank shall repay to the Agent forthwith on demand such amount distributed to such Bank together with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to such Bank to but excluding the date such Bank repays such amount to the Agent at the Effective Federal Funds Rate for each such day. Nothing contained in this subsection 2.12(b) shall relieve the Company from its obligations to make payments on all amounts due hereunder in accordance with the terms hereof. 2.13 Increased Costs. (a) In the event that any law, regulation, treaty or directive or any change therein or in the interpretation or application thereof or compliance by any Bank with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any central bank or other Governmental Authority enacted or made subsequent to the date hereof: (i) does or shall impose, modify or hold applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan or similar requirement against assets held by, or deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, advances or loans by, or other credit extended by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of such Bank; or (ii) does or shall impose on such Bank any other condition; and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Bank of making, or maintaining advances or extensions of credit or to reduce any amounts receivable hereunder (such increase in cost or reduction in amounts receivable, "Increased Costs") then, in any such case, the Company shall promptly pay to the Agent for the account of such Bank, upon the written demand of such Bank to the Company (with a copy to the Agent), so long as such Increased Costs are not otherwise included in the amounts required to be paid to such Bank pursuant to subsection 2.13(b), 2.15, or 2.16, any additional amounts necessary to compensate such Bank for such Increased Costs which such Bank deems to be material as determined by such Bank with respect to its Eurodollar Loans. If a Bank becomes entitled to claim any additional amounts pursuant to this subsection 2.13(a), it shall promptly notify the Company, through the Agent, of the event by reason of which it has become so entitled. A certificate as to any additional amounts payable pursuant to the foregoing sentence submitted by a Bank, through the Agent, to the Company shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. (b) Upon notice from any Affected Bank (as hereinafter defined), the Company shall pay to the Agent for the account of such Affected Bank an additional amount for each Eurodollar Loan of such Affected Bank, payable on the last day of the Interest Period with respect thereto, equal to P x [[R / (1.00 - r)] - R] x [T / 360] Where P = the principal amount of such Eurodollar Loan of such Bank; R = the Eurodollar Rate (expressed as a decimal) for such Interest Period; T = the number of days in such Interest Period during which such Bank was an "Affected Bank"; and r = the aggregate of rates (expressed as a decimal) of reserve requirements current on the date two Business Days prior to the beginning of such Interest Period (including, without limitation, basic, supplemental, marginal and emergency reserves) under any regulations of the Federal Reserve Board or other Governmental Authority having jurisdiction with respect thereto, as now and from time to time hereafter in effect, dealing with reserve requirements prescribed for eurocurrency funding (currently referred to as "Eurocurrency liabilities" in Regulation D of the Federal Reserve Board) maintained by a member bank of the Federal Reserve System. The term "Affected Bank" shall mean any Bank party to this Agreement that is (i) organized under the laws of the United States or any State thereof or (ii) a bank organized under laws other than those of the United States of America or a State thereof that is funding its Eurodollar Loans through a branch or agency located in the United States of America. Each Bank agrees to notify the Agent (A) by appropriate notification on its Addendum in the case of each original Bank party hereto and (B) in the case of each New Bank, and each Assignee (as defined in the Chrysler Agreement) that is not already a Bank, upon its becoming a party hereto, whether or not it is an Affected Bank, and of any subsequent change of status, disclosing the effective date of such change. 2.14 Transfer of Eurodollar Loans. Upon the occurrence of any of the events specified in subsection 2.13(a), each Bank whose Eurodollar Loans are affected by any such event agrees that it will transfer its Eurodollar Loans affected by any such event to another branch office (or, if such Bank so elects, to an affiliate) of such Bank, provided that such transfer shall be made only if such Bank shall have determined in good faith (which determination shall, absent manifest error, be final, conclusive and binding upon all parties) that, (a) on the basis of existing circumstances, such transfer will avoid such events and will not result in any additional costs, liabilities or expenses to such Bank or to the Company and (b) such transfer is otherwise consistent with the interests of such Bank. 2.15 Indemnity. The Company agrees to indemnify each Bank and to hold such Bank harmless from all losses or expenses (including, but not limited to, any such loss or expense arising from interest or fees payable by such Bank to lenders of funds obtained by it in order to maintain its Eurodollar Loans hereunder, but excluding loss of the Applicable Margin) which such Bank may sustain or incur as a consequence of (a) failure by the Company in making any payment when due (whether by acceleration or otherwise) of the principal amount of or interest on the Eurodollar Loans of such Bank, (b) failure by the Company in making a borrowing of Eurodollar Loans, or a conversion into or continuation of Eurodollar Loans, after the Company has given a notice requesting or accepting the same in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, (c) failure by the Company in making any prepayment after the Company has given a notice in accordance with subsection 2.5 or (d) a prepayment of a Eurodollar Loan on a day that is not the last day of the Interest Period with respect thereto. Such indemnification may include an amount equal to the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest which would have accrued on the amount so prepaid, or not so borrowed, converted or continued, for the period from the date of such prepayment or of such failure to borrow, convert or continue to the last day of the relevant Interest Period (or proposed Interest Period), in each case at the applicable rate of interest for such Loans provided for herein (excluding, however, the Applicable Margin) over (ii) the amount of interest (as reasonably determined by such Bank) which would have accrued to such Bank on such amount by placing such amount on deposit for a comparable period with leading banks in the interbank eurodollar market. The agreements in this subsection 2.15 shall survive the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder. 2.16 Taxes. (a) In the event that the adoption of any law, regulation, treaty or directive or any change therein or in the interpretation or application thereof, in each case after the date hereof, shall require any Taxes (as hereinafter defined) to be withheld or deducted from any amount payable to any Bank under this Agreement, upon notice by such Bank to the Company (with a copy to the Agent) to the effect that (i) as a result of the adoption of such law, rule, regulation, treaty or directive or a change therein or in the interpretation thereof, Taxes are being withheld or deducted from amounts payable to such Bank under this Agreement and (ii) such Bank has taken all action required to be taken by it to avoid the imposition of such Taxes pursuant to paragraph (c) of this subsection 2.16 prior to demanding indemnification under this paragraph (a), the Company will pay to the Agent for the account of such Bank additional amounts so that such additional amounts, together with amounts otherwise payable under this Agreement, will yield to such Bank, after deduction from such increased amount of all Taxes required to be withheld or deducted therefrom, the amount stated to be payable under this Agreement. The term "Taxes" shall mean all net income, stamp or other taxes, levies, imposts, duties, charges, fees, deductions or withholdings, imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any country (or by any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein), excluding, with respect to any Bank, net income and franchise taxes imposed with respect to net income of any country (or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein) where such Bank is organized or, in respect of such Bank's Eurodollar Loans, by the country (or any political subdivision or tax authority thereof or therein) where such Bank's Eurodollar Loans are booked and, in respect of such Bank's Base Rate Loans, by the country (or any political subdivision or tax authority thereof or therein) where such Bank's Base Rate Loans are booked. If the Company fails to pay any Taxes when due following notification by any Bank as provided above, the Company shall indemnify such Bank for any incremental taxes, interest or penalties that may become payable by any Bank as a result of any such failure by the Company to make such payment. The Company may, upon payment by the Company to any Bank claiming indemnification under this paragraph (a) of any amount payable by the Company to such Bank, elect by not less than four Business Days' prior written notice to such Bank to terminate the Commitment of such Bank and prepay the Loans of such Bank outstanding hereunder on the next day upon which a prepayment may be made pursuant to subsection 2.5. (b) Each Bank that is not incorporated under the laws of the United States of America or a state thereof agrees that it will deliver to the Company and the Agent (i) two duly completed copies of United States Internal Revenue Service Form 1001 or 4224 or any successor applicable form, as the case may be, and (ii) an Internal Revenue Service Form W-8 or W-9 or any successor form. Each such Bank also agrees to deliver to the Company and the Agent two further copies of the said Form 1001 or 4224 and Form W-8 or W-9, or successor applicable forms or other manner of certification, as the case may be, on or before the date that any such form expires or becomes obsolete or after the occurrence of any event requiring a change in the most recent form previously delivered by it to the Company, and such extensions or renewals thereof as may reasonably be requested by the Company or the Agent, unless in any such case an event (including, without limitation, any change in treaty, law or regulation) has occurred prior to the date on which any such delivery would otherwise be required which renders all such forms inapplicable or which would prevent such Bank from duly completing and delivering any such form with respect to it and such Bank so advises the Company and the Agent. Such Bank shall certify (i) in the case of Form 1001 or 4224, that it is entitled to receive payments under this Agreement without deduction or withholding of any United States federal income taxes and (ii) in the case of a Form W-8 or W-9, that it is entitled to an exemption from United States backup withholding tax. (c) No Bank may request indemnification for any Taxes from the Company under paragraph (a) of this subsection 2.16 to the extent that such Taxes would have been avoided or reduced by such Bank's transfer of its Loans affected by such event to another office of such Bank (or to an affiliate of such Bank), by such Bank's properly claiming the benefit of any exemption from or reduction of such Taxes (whether provided by statute, treaty or otherwise) including, without limitation, by delivering the forms required by paragraph (b) of this subsection 2.16, or by such Bank's taking any other action which in its judgment is reasonable to avoid or reduce such Taxes, provided that such Bank shall not be required to (i) take any action which in the reasonable judgment of such Bank could directly or indirectly result in any increased cost or expense or in any loss of opportunity to such Bank unless the Company shall have provided to such Bank indemnity or reimbursement therefor in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to such Bank or (ii) claim or apply any tax credit against such Taxes. (d) Within 30 days after the payment by the Company of any Taxes withheld or deducted from any amount payable to any Bank under this Agreement, and irrespective of whether such Bank is entitled to demand indemnification in respect thereof under paragraph (a) above, the Company will furnish to such Bank (with a copy to the Agent), the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing payment thereof. 2.17 Transferred Commitment. (a) The Company and each Bank agree that Chrysler may by giving four days' notice to the Agent, each Bank and the Company (which notice shall, upon receipt by the Agent supersede and cancel all prior notices hereunder), consent to the transfer to and borrowing by the Company hereunder of such portion of the Available Company/CFC Commitments (as such term is defined in the Chrysler Agreement) as may be specified in such notice (as to each Bank, its "Transferred Commitment"; collectively for all the Banks, the "Transferred Commitments"). As of the Effective Date, the Transferred Commitments shall be zero, unless Chrysler shall have delivered a notice pursuant to the foregoing sentence at least four days prior to the Effective Date. Each notice given pursuant to this subsection shall indicate the total Transferred Commitments and as to each Bank, its pro rata Transferred Commitment. (b) The Company also agrees that Chrysler may, by giving thirty days' written notice to the Agent, each Bank and the Company, withdraw any consent to the transfer to and borrowing by the Company given in accordance with subsection 2.17(a) in respect of any portion of the Transferred Commitments not utilized by the Company as of the date of such notice. 2.18 Use of Proceeds. The proceeds of the Loans hereunder shall be used by the Company for general corporate purposes. SECTION 3. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES In order to induce the Banks to enter into this Agreement and to make the Loans herein provided for, the Company hereby represents and warrants to each Bank that: 3.1 Financial Condition. The consolidated balance sheet of the Company and its Subsidiaries as at December 31, 1994 and the related consolidated statements of net earnings and cash flows for the fiscal year ended on such date, certified by Deloitte & Touche, copies of which have been delivered to each Bank, present fairly the consolidated financial position of the Company and its Subsidiaries as at such date, and the consolidated results of their operations and cash flows for the fiscal year then ended. The unaudited consolidated balance sheet of the Company and its Subsidiaries as at March 31, 1995 and the related consolidated statements of net earnings and cash flows for the three-month period ended on such date, certified by a Responsible Officer, copies of which have been delivered to each Bank, present fairly the consolidated financial condition of the Company and its Subsidiaries as at such date, and the consolidated results of their operations for the three-month period then ended (subject to normal year-end audit adjustments). Such financial statements, including the related schedules and notes thereto, have been prepared in accordance with GAAP. As at March 31, 1995, neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries had any asset, liability, contingent obligation, liability for taxes, long-term lease or unusual forward or long-term commitment material to the financial condition of the Company and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole, which was not reflected in the foregoing statements or in the notes thereto. 3.2 No Change. Between December 31, 1994 and the Effective Date, there has been no material adverse change in the business, operations or financial condition of the Company and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole. 3.3 Corporate Existence. The Company (a) is a corporation duly incorporated, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Michigan, and (b) is duly qualified as a foreign corporation to do business and is in good standing in each of the jurisdictions in which the character of the properties owned or held under lease by it or the nature of business transacted by it makes such qualification necessary, except in the case of this clause (b) to the extent that the failure to be so qualified or in good standing would not have a material adverse effect on the business, operations or financial condition of the Company and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole. 3.4 Corporate Authorization; No Violation. The execution, delivery and performance by the Company of this Agreement are within the corporate powers of the Company, have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action, and do not contravene any Requirement of Law or Contractual Obligation of the Company, except to the extent that such contravention would not have a material adverse effect on the business, operations or financial condition of the Company and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole or on the ability of the Company to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement or on the rights and remedies of the Agent and the Banks hereunder. 3.5 Government Authorization. No authorization or approval or other action by, and no notice to or filing with, any Governmental Authority is required to be obtained or made by the Company for the due execution, delivery and performance by the Company of this Agreement. 3.6 Federal Regulations. Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries is principally engaged in the business of extending credit for the purpose of purchasing or carrying margin stock (within the meaning of Regulation U, T, G or X issued by the Federal Reserve Board), and no proceeds of any borrowing hereunder will be used to purchase or carry any margin stock or to extend credit to others for the purpose of purchasing or carrying any margin stock. 3.7 Enforceable Obligations. This Agreement has been duly executed and delivered on behalf of the Company, and this Agreement constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of the Company enforceable against the Company in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors' rights generally and by principles of equity, whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law. 3.8 No Material Litigation. No litigation, investigation or proceeding of or before any arbitrator or Governmental Authority is pending or, to the knowledge of the Company, threatened by or against the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or against any of its or their respective properties or revenues, in which there is a reasonable likelihood of an adverse determination (a) with respect to this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated hereby, if such adverse determination would have a material adverse effect on the ability of the Company to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement or on the rights and remedies of the Agent and the Banks hereunder or (b) which would, if adversely determined, have a material adverse effect on the business, operations, property or financial condition of the Company and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole. 3.9 Taxes. Each of the Company and its Subsidiaries has filed or caused to be filed all material tax returns which to the knowledge of the Company are required to be filed, and has paid all material taxes shown to be due and payable on said returns or on any assessments made against it or any of its property and all other taxes, fees and other charges imposed on it or any of its property by any Governmental Authority (other than those the amount or validity of which is currently being contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings and with respect to which reserves in conformity with GAAP, if any, have been provided on the books of the Company or its Subsidiaries, as the case may be). 3.10 ERISA. No Prohibited Transaction or Accumulated Funding Deficiency (other than those that have been waived by the Internal Revenue Service) has occurred since July 1, 1974 with respect to any Plan and no Reportable Event has occurred since July 1, 1974 with respect to any Plan which could in either case subject the Company or any of its Subsidiaries to any tax, penalty or other liabilities in the aggregate material in relation to the business, operations, property or financial or other condition of the Company and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole. The projected benefit obligations with respect to all benefits, both vested and nonvested, under all Single Employer Plans (based on the most recently available actuarial information and computed in accordance with Statement of Accounting Standards No. 87) maintained by the Company or a Commonly Controlled Entity did not exceed, at December 31, 1994, the fair value of the assets of such Plans. 3.11 Investment Company Act; Other Regulations. The Company is not an "investment company", or a company "controlled" by an "investment company", within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. The Company is not subject to regulation under any Federal or state statute or regulation which limits its ability to incur Indebtedness. 3.12 Existing Financial Covenants. Schedule II hereto sets forth a list of all Material Indebtedness of the Company or any Significant Subsidiary the documentation with respect to which includes a financial covenant which is more onerous than, or materially different from, the financial covenant contained in subsection 6.1, together with a complete and correct transcription of the text of each such financial covenant.

The Company will, and will cause each Subsidiary to, preserve, renew and keep in full force and effect its corporate existence and take all reasonable action to maintain all rights, privileges and franchises necessary or desirable in the normal conduct of its business, except for rights, privileges and franchises the loss of which would not in the aggregate in the reasonable business judgment of the Company have a material adverse effect on the business, operations, property or financial or other condition of the Company and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole, and except as otherwise permitted by subsection 6.6. 5.3 Notices. The Company will promptly give notice to the Agent (which shall notify the Banks) of (a) the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default (accompanied by a certificate of a Responsible Officer specifying the nature of such event, the period of existence thereof, and the action that the Company proposes to take with respect thereto) and (b) the execution and delivery of any documentation with respect to any Material Indebtedness of the Company or any Significant Subsidiary if such documentation includes a financial covenant which is more onerous than, or materially different from, the financial covenant contained in subsection 6.1, accompanied by a complete and correct transcription of the text of such financial covenant.

or (h) one or more final judgments or decrees shall be entered against the Company or any of its Significant Subsidiaries involving in the aggregate a liability (not paid or fully covered by insurance) of $100,000,000 (or the equivalent thereof in any other currency) or more, shall have been unpaid for a period of 60 days and shall not have been stayed;

Except as expressly provided above in this Section 7, presentment, demand, protest and all other notices of any kind are hereby expressly waived. SECTION 8. THE AGENT 8.1 Appointment. Each Bank hereby irrevocably designates and appoints Chemical as the Agent of such Bank under this Agreement, and each Bank hereby irrevocably authorizes Chemical as Agent for such Bank, to take such action on its behalf under the provisions of this Agreement and to exercise such powers and perform such duties as are expressly delegated to the Agent by the terms of this Agreement, together with such other powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary elsewhere in this Agreement, the Agent shall not have any duties or responsibilities, except those expressly set forth herein, or any fiduciary relationship with any Bank, and no implied covenants, functions, responsibilities, duties, obligations or liabilities shall be read into this Agreement or otherwise exist against the Agent. 8.2 Delegation of Duties. The Agent may execute any of its duties under this Agreement by or through agents or attorneys-in-fact and shall be entitled to advice of counsel concerning all matters pertaining to such duties. Without limiting the foregoing, the Agent may appoint CASC as its agent to perform the functions of the Agent hereunder relating to the advancing of funds to the Company and distribution of funds to the Banks and to perform such other related functions of the Agent hereunder as are reasonably incidental to such functions. 8.3 Exculpatory Provisions. Neither the Agent, nor any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or affiliates (including, without limitation, CASC) shall be (a) liable for any action lawfully taken or omitted to be taken by it or such Person under or in connection with this Agreement (except for its or such Person's own gross negligence or willful misconduct), or (b) responsible in any manner to any of the Banks for any recitals, statements, representations or warranties made by the Company or any officer thereof contained in this Agreement or in any certificate, report, statement or other document referred to or provided for in, or received by the Agent under or in connection with, this Agreement or for any failure of the Company to perform its obligations hereunder. The Agent shall not be under any obligation to any Bank to ascertain or to inquire as to the observance or performance of any of the agreements contained in, or conditions of, this Agreement, or to inspect the properties, books or records of the Company. 8.4 Reliance by Agent and CASC. The Agent and CASC shall be entitled to rely, and shall be fully protected in relying, upon any writing, resolution, notice, consent, certificate, affidavit, letter, cablegram, telegram, facsimile transmission, telex or teletype message, statement, order or other document or conversation believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed, sent or made by the proper Person or Persons and upon advice and statements of legal counsel (including, without limitation, counsel to the Company), independent accountants and other experts selected by the Agent. The Agent and CASC may deem and treat the Bank specified in the Register with respect to any amount owing hereunder as the owner thereof for all purposes unless a written notice of assignment, negotiation or transfer thereof shall have been filed with the Agent in accordance with subsection 9.7. The Agent shall be fully justified in failing or refusing to take any action under this Agreement unless it shall first receive such advice or concurrence of the Required Banks (or, if so specified in this Agreement, all of the Banks) as it deems appropriate or it shall first be indemnified to its satisfaction by the Banks against any and all liability and expense which may be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action. The Agent shall, in all cases, be fully protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, under this Agreement in accordance with a request of the Required Banks (or, if so specified in this Agreement, all of the Banks), and such request and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto shall be binding upon all the Banks and all future holders of the obligations owing by the Company hereunder. 8.5 Notice of Default. The Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge or notice of the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default unless the Agent has received notice from a Bank or the Company referring to this Agreement, describing such Default or Event of Default and stating that such notice is a "notice of default". In the event that the Agent receives such a notice, the Agent shall give notice thereof to the Banks, and, if such notice is received from a Bank, the Agent shall give notice thereof to the Company and each other Bank. Subject to the proviso contained in the first sentence of subsection 9.1, the Agent shall take such action with respect to such Default or Event of Default as shall be reasonably directed by the Required Banks (or, if so specified in this Agreement, all of the Banks), provided that, unless and until the Agent shall have received such directions, the Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such Default or Event of Default as it shall deem advisable in the best interests of the Banks. 8.6 Non-Reliance on Agent, Other Banks and CASC. Each Bank expressly acknowledges that neither the Agent, nor any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or affiliates (including, without limitation, CASC) has made any representations or warranties to it and that no act by the Agent hereafter taken, including any review of the affairs of the Company, shall be deemed to constitute any representation or warranty by the Agent to any Bank. Each Bank represents to the Agent and CASC that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Agent, any other Bank or CASC, and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own appraisal of and investigation into the business, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Company and made its own decision to make its Loans hereunder and enter into this Agreement. Each Bank also represents that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Agent, any other Bank or CASC, and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit analysis, appraisals and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement, and to make such investigation as it deems necessary to inform itself as to the business, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Company. Except for notices, reports and other documents expressly required to be furnished to the Banks by the Agent hereunder, the Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to provide any Bank with any credit or other information concerning the business, operations, property, financial and other condition or creditworthiness of the Company which may come into the possession of the Agent or any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or affiliates. 8.7 Indemnification. The Banks agree to indemnify the Agent and CASC (to the extent not reimbursed by the Company and without limiting the obligation of the Company to do so), ratably according to the respective amounts of their respective Commitment Percentages in effect on the date on which indemnification is sought under this subsection 8.7 (or, if indemnification is sought after the date upon which the Commitments shall have terminated, ratably in accordance with such Commitment Percentages immediately prior to such date) from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind whatsoever which may at any time (including, without limitation, at any time following the payment of the Loans made hereunder) be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Agent or CASC in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any other documents contemplated by or referred to herein or the transactions contemplated hereby or any action taken or omitted by the Agent or CASC under or in connection with any of the foregoing, provided that no Bank shall be liable for the payment of any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting from the Agent's or CASC's gross negligence or willful misconduct. The agreements in this subsection 8.7 shall survive the payment of the Loans made hereunder and all other amounts payable hereunder. 8.8 Agent in its Individual Capacity. The Agent and its affiliates may make loans to, accept deposits from and generally engage in any kind of business with the Company as though the Agent were not the Agent hereunder. With respect to its Loans made or renewed by it, the Agent shall have the same rights and powers under this Agreement as any Bank and may exercise the same as though it were not the Agent and the terms "Bank" and "Banks" shall include the Agent in its individual capacity. 8.9 Successor Agent. The Agent may resign as Agent, upon 10 days' notice to the Banks and the Company, and may be removed at any time with or without cause by the Required Banks. If the Agent shall resign or be removed as Agent under this Agreement, then either (a) the Required Banks shall appoint from among the Banks a successor agent for the Banks, which successor agent shall be approved by the Company, or (b) if a successor agent shall not have been so appointed and approved within the ten-day period following the Agent's notice to the Banks or its removal as Agent, the Agent shall then, with the consent of the Company, appoint a successor agent who shall serve as Agent until such time, if any, as the Required Banks appoint, and the Company approves, a successor agent as provided in (a) above. Upon its appointment pursuant to either clause (a) or (b) above, such successor agent shall succeed to the rights, powers and duties of the Agent, and the term "Agent" shall mean such successor agent effective upon its appointment, and the former Agent's rights, powers and duties as Agent shall be terminated, without any other or further act or deed on the part of such former Agent or any of the parties to this Agreement or any holders of the obligations owing by the Company hereunder. After any retiring Agent's resignation hereunder as Agent, the provisions of this Section 8 shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was Agent under this Agreement. SECTION 9. MISCELLANEOUS 9.1 Amendments and Waivers. With the written consent of the Required Banks, the Agent and the Company may, from time to time, enter into written amendments, supplements or modifications hereto for the purpose of adding any provisions to this Agreement or changing in any manner the rights of the Banks or of the Company hereunder, and with the consent of the Required Banks, the Agent on behalf of the Banks may execute and deliver to the Company a written instrument waiving, on such terms and conditions as the Agent may specify (with such consent) in such instrument, any of the requirements of this Agreement or any Default or Event of Default and its consequences; provided, however, that no such waiver and no such amendment, supplement or modification shall (a) extend the maturity of any Loan, or reduce the rate or extend the time of payment of interest thereon, or reduce the principal amount thereof, or change the amount or terms of any Bank's Commitment, or amend, modify or waive any provision of this subsection 9.1 or reduce the percentage specified in the definition of Required Banks, or consent to the assignment or transfer by the Company of any of its rights and obligations under this Agreement or amend, modify or waive the provisions of subsection 9.8, in each case without the prior written consent of each Bank directly affected thereby, or (b) amend, modify or waive any provision of Section 8 without the prior written consent of the Agent. Each Bank hereby consents to the inclusion in this Agreement of each and every amendment, revision, addition, change, waiver or other modification to Section 7, Section 8 and/or the definitions of "Applicable Margin", "Base Rate", "Eurodollar Rate" and "Status" (including each defined term referred to in the definition of "Status") of the Long Term Revolving Credit Agreement made after the Effective Date (except to the extent relating to any provision contained in such Sections on the Effective Date as to which there is no comparable provision herein on the Effective Date) and each and every such amendment, revision, addition, change, waiver or other modification thereof is hereby incorporated, as in effect from time to time, into this Agreement with the same effect as if fully set forth in Section 5, Section 6 and/or the definitions of "Applicable Margin", "Base Rate", "Eurodollar Rate" and "Status" (including each defined term referred to in the definition of "Status") of this Agreement, as appropriate, provided that for purposes of this Agreement if the Long Term Revolving Credit Agreement is terminated such Sections 5 and 6 and such definitions of "Applicable Margin", "Base Rate", "Eurodollar Rate" and "Status" shall remain in effect for purposes of this Agreement in the form in which they shall be in effect on the date of such termination; provided, further, that for purposes of this Agreement if the Long Term Revolving Credit Agreement is amended so as to remove the covenant set forth in Section 8.4 of the Long Term Revolving Credit Agreement, subsection 6.4 hereof shall not be so amended, and if any provision of Section 8.4 of the Long Term Revolving Credit Agreement is amended or waived so as to grant to the financial institutions under the Long Term Revolving Credit Agreement a Lien on any assets of the Company or its Subsidiaries, the obligations of the Company hereunder shall be secured, and the Company shall take such action and execute such security documents as the Agent may reasonably request to further effect the security of such obligations, equally and ratably with its obligations to the financial institutions under the Long Term Revolving Credit Agreement. The Company will advise the Agent promptly of any amendment to or termination of the Long Term Revolving Credit Agreement. Any such waiver and any such amendment, supplement or modification shall apply equally to each of the Banks and shall be binding upon the Company, the Banks, the Agent and all future holders of the obligations owing by the Company hereunder. In the case of any waiver, the Company, the Banks and the Agent shall be restored to their former position and rights hereunder and any Default or Event of Default waived shall be deemed to be cured and not continuing; but no such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other Default or Event of Default, or impair any right consequent thereon. No provision of this subsection 9.1 shall limit the rights of any party hereto pursuant to subsections 2.13, 2.14, 2.15, 2.16, 9.8 and 9.9. 9.2 Notices. All notices, requests and demands to or upon the respective parties hereto to be effective shall be in writing or by telecopy and, unless otherwise expressly provided herein, shall be deemed to have been duly given or made when delivered by hand or when deposited in the mail, first class or air postage prepaid, or, in the case of telecopied notice, when telecopied, receipt acknowledged, addressed as follows in the case of the Company and the Agent, and as set forth in its Addendum in the case of the other parties hereto, or to such other address as may be hereafter notified by the respective parties hereto and any future holders of the obligations owing by the Company hereunder: The Company: Chrysler Financial Corporation 27777 Franklin Road Southfield, Michigan 48034-8286 Attention: Vice President and Treasurer Telecopy: 810-948-3801 The Agent: Chemical Bank 270 Park Avenue New York, New York 10017 Attention: Rosemary Bradley Telecopy: 212-972-9854 With Copies to: Chemical Bank Agency Services Grand Central Tower 140 East 45th Street New York, New York 10017 Attention: Sandra Miklave Telecopy: 212-622-0002 provided that any notice, request or demand to or upon the Agent pursuant to subsection 2.2, 2.4, 2.17, or 8.5 shall not be effective until received. 9.3 Clearing Accounts. (a) Each Bank irrevocably authorizes the Agent and CASC to cause such Bank's Clearing Account to be debited as contemplated in subsection 2.2 and to cause to be created an overdraft in such account if the balance in such Bank's Clearing Account on a particular Borrowing Date is less than the amount of the Loan to be made by such Bank on such day. In addition each Bank irrevocably authorizes the Agent and CASC to cause such Bank's Clearing Account to be credited, as contemplated in subsection 2.12(a), with its ratable share of payments received by the Agent from the Company. The Clearing Account of each Bank shall be maintained at its own expense and free of charge to the Agent, CASC and the Company.

No failure to exercise and no delay in exercising, on the part of the Agent or any Bank, any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder, shall operate as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or of the exercise of any other right, remedy, power or privilege. The rights, remedies, powers and privileges herein provided are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights, remedies, powers and privileges provided by law. 9.5 Survival of Representations and Warranties.

The agreements in this subsection 9.6 shall survive the repayment of the Loans made hereunder and all other amounts payable hereunder. 9.7 Successors and Assigns; Participations and Assignments. (a) This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Company, the Banks and the Agent, and their respective successors and assigns, except that the Company may not assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of each Bank. (b) Any Bank may, in the ordinary course of its commercial banking business and in accordance with applicable law, at any time sell to one or more banks or other entities ("Participants") participating interests in any Loan owing to such Bank, any Commitment of such Bank or any other interest of such Bank hereunder. In the event of any such sale by a Bank of a participating interest to a Participant, such Bank's obligations under this Agreement to the other parties to this Agreement shall remain unchanged, such Bank shall remain solely responsible for the performance thereof, such Bank shall remain the holder of any Loan made by it for all purposes under this Agreement, and the Company and the Agent shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Bank in connection with such Bank's rights and obligations under this Agreement, provided, that the terms of any participation agreement or certificate relating to any such participation shall prohibit any subparticipations by such participant and provided, further any such participation agreement or certificate shall permit the Bank granting such participations the right to consent to waivers, amendments or supplements to this Agreement without the consent of such participant except in the case of (a) waivers of any Default or Event of Default described in Section 7(a), and (b) any amendment or modification extending the maturity of any Loan, or reducing the rate or extending the time of payment of interest thereon, or reducing the principal amount thereof. The Company agrees that if amounts outstanding under this Agreement are due or unpaid, or shall have been declared or shall have become due and payable upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, each Participant shall be deemed to have the right of setoff in respect of its participating interest in amounts owing under this Agreement to the same extent as if the amount of its participating interest were owing directly to it as a Bank under this Agreement, provided that, in purchasing such participating interest, such Participant shall be deemed to have agreed to share with the Banks the proceeds thereof as provided in subsection 9.9 as fully as if it were a Bank hereunder. All amounts payable by the Company under Section 2 shall be determined as if such Bank had not sold such participations. (c) Any Bank may assign to any Bank or additional bank or financial institution or any Federal Reserve Bank all or any part of its rights and obligations under this Agreement on the terms and conditions set forth in subsection 9.6(c), (d), (e) and (g) of the Chrysler Agreement, the provisions of which (including the definitions of defined terms used therein) are incorporated herein by reference as if set forth fully herein; provided, however, that in no event shall any such assignment by any Bank to any assignee (other than any pledge or assignment of Loans to a Federal Reserve Bank) be permitted hereunder unless contemporaneously therewith such Bank shall assign to such assignee a percentage interest in such Bank's rights and obligations under the Chrysler Agreement and the promissory notes issued thereunder that is equal to the percentage interest then being assigned hereunder. (d) The Company authorizes each Bank to disclose to any Participant or Assignee (as defined in the Chrysler Agreement) (each, a "Transferee") and any prospective Transferee any and all financial information in such Bank's possession concerning the Company and its Affiliates which has been delivered to such Bank by or on behalf of the Company pursuant to this Agreement or which has been delivered to such Bank by or on behalf of the Company in connection with such Bank's credit evaluation of the Company and its affiliates prior to becoming a party to this Agreement. (e) In order to facilitate any pledge or assignment to any Federal Reserve Bank of any Loans made by any Bank hereunder, the Company hereby agrees that, upon request of any Bank at any time and from time to time after the Company has made its initial borrowing hereunder, the Company shall provide to such Bank, at the Company's own expense, a note, substantially in the form of Exhibit E, evidencing the Loans owing to such Bank. (f) The Agent shall maintain at its address referred to in subsection 9.2 a register (the "Register") for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Banks, the Commitments of the Banks, and the principal amount of each Type of Loan owing to each Bank from time to time. The entries in the Register shall be conclusive, in the absence of clearly demonstrable error, and the Company, the Agent and the Banks may treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register as the owner of the Loan recorded therein for all purposes of this Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Company or any Bank at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. The Agent shall give prompt written notice to the Company of the making of any entry in the Register or any change in any such entry. 9.8 Right of Set-off. Upon (a) the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default and (b) with the consent of the Required Banks, each Bank is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) at any time held and other indebtedness at any time owing by such Bank (including, without limitation, its branches) to or for the credit or the account of the Company against any and all of the obligations of the Company now or hereafter existing under this Agreement, irrespective of whether or not such Bank shall have made any demand under this Agreement and although such obligations may be unmatured. Each Bank agrees promptly to notify the Company after any such set-off and application made by such Bank, provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application. The rights of each Bank under this subsection are in addition to other rights and remedies (including, without limitation, other rights of set-off) which such Bank may have. 9.9 Adjustments. If any Bank (a "benefitted Bank") shall at any time, except in connection with any termination or assignment of or by such Bank pursuant to this Agreement, receive any payment of all or part of its Loans made hereunder, or interest thereon, or receive any collateral in respect thereof (whether voluntarily or involuntarily, by set-off, pursuant to events or proceedings of the nature referred to in clause (f) of Section 7, or otherwise) in a greater proportion than any such payment to, or any collateral received by, any other Bank, if any, in respect of such other Bank's Loans, or interest thereon, such benefitted Bank shall purchase for cash from the other Banks such portion of each such other Bank's Loans, or shall provide such other Banks with the benefits of any such collateral, or the proceeds thereof, as shall be necessary to cause such benefitted Bank to share the excess payment or benefits of such collateral or proceeds ratably with each of the Banks; provided, however, that if all or any portion of such excess payment or benefits is thereafter recovered from such benefitted Bank, such purchase shall be rescinded, and the purchase price and benefits returned, to the extent of such recovery, but without interest. The Company agrees that each Bank so purchasing a portion of another Bank's Loans may exercise all rights of payment (including, without limitation, rights of set-off) with respect to such portion as fully as if such Bank were the direct holder of such portion. 9.10 New Banks. During the term of this Agreement with the consent of the Company and upon notification to the Agent, one or more additional financial institutions may become a party to this Agreement by executing a supplement hereto with the Company and the Agent, substantially in the form of Exhibit B, whereupon such financial institution (herein called a "New Bank") shall become a Bank for all purposes and to the same extent as if originally a party hereto and shall be bound by and entitled to the benefits of this Agreement, provided that any such New Bank has also become a New Bank under the Chrysler Agreement pursuant to subsection 9.10 thereof. Effective as of the date on which any such New Bank becomes a Bank pursuant to the provisions of this subsection, the Agent, each Bank and the Company shall receive a notice from Chrysler of each Bank's Commitment and the aggregate Commitments pursuant to subsection 2.17 of the Chrysler Agreement. If on the date upon which such New Bank becomes a Bank pursuant to the provisions of this subsection 9.10, there is an unpaid principal amount of the Loans outstanding hereunder, the Company shall borrow from such New Bank through the Agent, in an amount determined by multiplying the amount of such New Bank's Commitment by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the then unpaid principal amount of the Loans outstanding hereunder and the denominator of which shall be the aggregate Commitments of the Banks other than the New Bank. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if there are Eurodollar Loans outstanding, a financial institution that becomes a New Bank will make Eurodollar Loans to the Company (pro rata according to its Commitment Percentage) having Interest Periods corresponding to the then unexpired portions of the respective Interest Periods of such Eurodollar Loans and bearing interest at a rate equal to the respective interest rates then applicable to such Eurodollar Loans. The Agent shall advise the Banks of each addition of a New Bank hereunder, of the amount of its Commitment and of the amount of any borrowing from it hereunder made simultaneously upon its addition. 9.11 Increase in Commitments. During the term of this Agreement, upon any Bank increasing its Commitment under the Chrysler Agreement and Chrysler giving the notice required by subsection 2.17(c) of the Chrysler Agreement, such Bank shall be deemed to have increased its Commitment hereunder as set forth in such notice, whereupon such Bank shall be bound by and entitled to the benefits of this Agreement with respect to the full amount of its Commitment as so increased. Effective as of the date on which any such Bank increases its Commitment pursuant to the provisions of this subsection 9.11, the Agent, each Bank and the Company shall receive a notice from Chrysler of each Bank's Commitment and the aggregate Commitments pursuant to subsection 2.17 of the Chrysler Agreement. If on the date upon which such Bank increases its Commitment pursuant to this subsection 9.11 there is an unpaid principal amount of the Loans hereunder, the Company shall borrow from such Bank through the Agent, in an amount determined by multiplying the amount of the increase in such Bank's Commitment by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the then unpaid principal amount of the Loans outstanding hereunder and the denominator of which shall be the aggregate Commitments of the Banks other than the amount of the additional Commitment of such Bank. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if there are Eurodollar Loans outstanding, a Bank that increases its Commitment pursuant to this subsection 9.11 will make Eurodollar Loans to the Company (pro rata according to the amount of the increase in such Bank's Commitment) having Interest Periods corresponding to the then unexpired portions of the respective Interest Periods of such Eurodollar Loans and bearing interest at a rate equal to the respective interest rates then applicable to such Eurodollar Loans. The Agent shall advise the Banks of such increase in the Commitment of a Bank and of the amount of any borrowing from it hereunder made simultaneously upon such increase. 9.12 Tax Forms.
