lending institutions listed from time to time on Annex I hereto (each a "Bank"
and, collectively, the "Banks"), THE BANK OF NOVA SCOTIA, as the Canadian

                              W I T N E S S E T H :

            WHEREAS, subject to and upon the terms and conditions herein set
forth, the Banks are willing to make available the credit facilities provided
for herein;

            NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS AGREED:

            SECTION 1. Amount and Terms of Credit.

            1.01 Commitments. (a) Subject to and upon the terms and conditions
set forth herein, each Bank with a Term Loan Commitment severally agrees to
make, on the Initial Borrowing Date, a term loan or term loans (each a "Term
Loan" and, collectively, the "Term Loans") to the Company, which Term Loans (i)
shall be made pursuant to a single drawing, (ii) shall, at the option of the
Company, be Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Loans, provided that all Term Loans
made as part of the same Borrowing shall, unless otherwise specifically provided
herein, consist of Term Loans of the same Type, (iii) shall equal for each Bank,
in initial aggregate principal amount, that amount which equals the Term Loan
Commitment of such Bank on the Initial Borrowing Date (before giving effect to
the termination thereof on such date pursuant to Section 3.03(d)). Once repaid,
Term Loans incurred hereunder may not be reborrowed.

            (b) Subject to and upon the terms and conditions herein set forth,
each Bank with a Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment severally agrees at any
time and

from time to time on and after the Initial Borrowing Date and prior to the 
Final Maturity Date, to make a revolving loan or revolving loans (each a 
"Tranche A Revolving Loan" and, collectively, the "Tranche A Revolving 
Loans") to the Company, which Tranche A Revolving Loans (i) shall, at the 
option of the Company, be Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Loans, provided that 
all Tranche A Revolving Loans made as part of the same Borrowing shall, 
unless otherwise specifically provided herein, consist of Tranche A Revolving 
Loans of the same Type, (ii) may be repaid and reborrowed in accordance with 
the provisions hereof, (iii) shall not exceed for any Bank at any time 
outstanding that aggregate principal amount which, when combined with such 
Bank's Adjusted Percentage, if any, of the sum of (x) the Letter of Credit 
Outstandings at such time, (y) the outstanding principal amount of Swingline 
Loans at such time plus (z) the Dollar Equivalent of the outstanding 
principal amount of Canadian Dollar Loans at such time, equals (1) if such 
Bank is a Non-Defaulting Bank, the Adjusted Tranche A Commitment of such Bank 
at such time and (2) if such Bank is a Defaulting Bank, the Tranche A 
Revolving Loan Commitment of such Bank at such time and (iv) shall not exceed 
in aggregate principal amount at any time outstanding, when combined with the 
aggregate principal amount of all Swingline Loans then outstanding, the 
Dollar Equivalent of the aggregate principal amount of Canadian Dollar Loans 
then outstanding and the aggregate amount of all Letter of Credit 
Outstandings at such time, an amount equal to the Total Tranche A Revolving 
Loan Commitment at such time.

            (c) Subject to and upon the terms and conditions herein set forth,
each Bank with a Tranche B Revolving Loan Commitment severally agrees at any
time and from time to time on and after the Tranche B Assumption Date with
respect to such Bank and prior to the Final Maturity Date, to make a revolving
loan or revolving loans (each a "Tranche B Revolving Loan" and together with the
Tranche A Revolving Loans, the "Revolving Loans") to the Company, which Tranche
B Revolving Loans (i) shall, at the option of the Company, be Base Rate Loans or
Eurodollar Loans, provided that all Tranche B Revolving Loans made as part of
the same Borrowing shall, unless otherwise specifically provided herein, consist
of Tranche B Revolving Loans of the same Type, (ii) may be repaid and reborrowed
in accordance with the provisions hereof, (iii) shall not exceed for any Bank at
any time outstanding that aggregate principal amount which equals the Tranche B
Revolving Loan Commitment of such Bank at such time.

            (d) Subject to and upon the terms and conditions herein set forth,
Chase in its individual capacity agrees to make, at any time and from time to
time on and after the Initial Borrowing Date and prior to the Swingline Expiry
Date, a revolving loan or revolving loans (each a "Swingline Loan" and,
collectively, the "Swingline Loans") to the Company, which Swingline Loans (i)
shall be made and maintained as Base Rate 

                                       -2-

Loans, (ii) may be repaid and reborrowed in accordance with the provisions 
hereof, (iii) shall not exceed in aggregate principal amount at any time 
outstanding, when combined with the aggregate principal amount of all Tranche 
A Revolving Loans made by Non-Defaulting Banks then outstanding, the Dollar 
Equivalent of the principal amount of all Canadian Dollar Loans then 
outstanding and the Letter of Credit Outstandings at such time, an amount 
equal to the Adjusted Total Tranche A Commitment then in effect (after giving 
effect to any reductions to the Adjusted Total Tranche A Commitment on such 
date) and (iv) shall not exceed in aggregate principal amount at any time 
outstanding the Maximum Swingline Amount. Chase will not make a Swingline 
Loan after it has received written notice from the Required Banks that one or 
more of the applicable conditions to Credit Events specified in Section 5 are 
not then satisfied.

            (e) On any Business Day, Chase may, in its sole discretion, give
notice to the Banks that its outstanding Swingline Loans shall be funded with a
Borrowing of Tranche A Revolving Loans (provided that each such notice shall be
deemed to have been automatically given upon the occurrence of an Event of
Default under Section 9.05), in which case a Borrowing of Tranche A Revolving
Loans constituting Base Rate Loans (each such Borrowing, a "Mandatory
Borrowing") shall be made on the immediately succeeding Business Day by all
Banks with a Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment pro rata based on each Bank's
Adjusted Percentage (determined before giving effect to any termination of the
Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitments pursuant to the last paragraph of Section
9), and the proceeds thereof shall be applied directly to repay Chase for such
outstanding Swingline Loans. Each such Bank hereby irrevocably agrees to make
Base Rate Loans upon one Business Day's notice pursuant to each Mandatory
Borrowing in the amount and in the manner specified in the preceding sentence
and on the date specified in writing by Chase notwithstanding (i) that the
amount of the Mandatory Borrowing may not comply with the Minimum Borrowing
Amount otherwise required hereunder, (ii) whether any conditions specified in
Section 5 are then satisfied, (iii) whether a Default or an Event of Default has
occurred and is continuing, (iv) the date of such Mandatory Borrowing and (v)
any reduction in the Total Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment or Adjusted Total
Tranche A Commitment after any such Swingline Loans were made. In the event that
any Mandatory Borrowing cannot for any reason be made on the date otherwise
required above (including, without limitation, as a result of the commencement
of a proceeding under the Bankruptcy Code in respect of the Company), then each
such Bank (other than Chase) hereby agrees that it shall forthwith purchase (as
of the date the Mandatory Borrowing would otherwise have occurred, but adjusted
for any payments received from the Company on or after such date and prior to
such purchase) from Chase (without recourse or warranty other than that such
Swingline Loans are free and clear of any Liens) such assignment of the

                                       -3-

outstanding Swingline Loans as shall be necessary to cause such Banks to 
share in such Swingline Loans ratably based upon their respective Adjusted 
Percentages (determined before giving effect to any termination of the 
Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitments pursuant to the last paragraph of 
Section 9), provided that all interest payable on the Swingline Loans shall 
be for the account of Chase until the date the respective assignment is 
purchased and, to the extent attributable to the purchased assignment, shall 
be payable to the Bank purchasing same from and after such date of purchase. 
Upon any change in the Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitments or Adjusted 
Percentages of the Banks pursuant to Section 1.10(c)(ii) or 12.04(b), or upon 
the occurrence of a Bank Default, it is hereby agreed that, with respect to 
all outstanding Swingline Loans, there shall be an automatic adjustment to 
the participations pursuant to this Section 1.01(e) to reflect the new 
Adjusted Percentages of the assigning and assignee Banks or of all 
Non-Defaulting Banks, as the case may be.

            (f) Subject to and upon the terms and conditions herein set forth,
the Canadian Lender in its individual capacity agrees to make, at any time and
from time to time on and after the Initial Borrowing Date and prior to the Final
Maturity Date, a revolving loan or revolving loans (each a "Canadian Dollar
Loan" and, collectively, the "Canadian Dollar Loans") to the Canadian Borrower,
which Canadian Dollar Loans (i) shall, at the option of the Canadian Borrower,
be Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Loans, provided that all Canadian Dollar Loans
made as part of the same Borrowing shall, unless otherwise specifically provided
herein, consist of Canadian Dollar Loans of the same Type, (ii) may be repaid
and reborrowed in accordance with the provisions hereof, (iii) shall not exceed
in Dollar Equivalent aggregate principal amount at any time outstanding, when
combined with the aggregate principal amount of all Tranche A Revolving Loans
made by Non-Defaulting Banks then outstanding, the aggregate principal amount of
all Swingline Loans then outstanding and the Letter of Credit Outstandings at
such time, an amount equal to the Adjusted Total Tranche A Commitment then in
effect (after giving effect to any reductions to the Adjusted Total Tranche A
Commitment on such date) and (iv) shall not exceed in Dollar Equivalent
aggregate principal amount at any time outstanding the Maximum Canadian Dollar
Amount. The Canadian Lender will not make a Canadian Dollar Loan after it has
received written notice from the Required Banks that one or more of the
applicable conditions to Credit Events specified in Section 5 are not then
satisfied. On the date of the making of any Canadian Dollar Loan, the Canadian
Lender shall notify the Administrative Agent and the Canadian Borrower of the
Dollar Equivalent of such Borrowing of Canadian Dollar Loans on such date.

                                       -4-

            (g) On any Business Day, the Canadian Lender may, in its sole 
discretion, give notice to the Banks that all outstanding Canadian Dollar 
Loans shall be assigned to the Banks (provided that such notice shall be 
deemed to have been automatically given upon the occurrence of an Event of 
Default under Section 9.05). Each Bank with a Tranche A Revolving Loan 
Commitment hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that in the event 
that any such notice is given or deemed given, such Bank shall purchase from 
the Canadian Lender (without recourse or warranty other than that such 
Canadian Dollar Loans are free and clear of any Liens) an assignment of the 
outstanding Canadian Dollar Loans in an amount equal to such Bank's Adjusted 
Percentage of such outstanding Canadian Dollar Loans in accordance with the 
provisions of this Section 1.01(g). Any such purchase shall be made on the 
second immediately succeeding Business Day, on which Business Day each such 
Bank shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Canadian 
Lender an amount equal to such Bank's Adjusted Percentage of all outstanding 
Canadian Dollar Loans in Canadian Dollars and same day funds. If and to the 
extent any such Bank shall not have so made its Adjusted Percentage of the 
outstanding principal amount of the Canadian Dollar Loans available to the 
Administrative Agent for the account of the Canadian Lender, such Bank agrees 
to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Canadian Lender, 
forthwith on demand such amount, together with interest thereon, for each day 
from such date until the date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent 
for the account of the Canadian Lender at the overnight Federal Funds rate. 
All interest payable on the Canadian Dollar Loans shall be for the account of 
the Canadian Lender until the date the respective assignment is purchased 
and, to the extent attributable to the purchased assignment, shall be payable 
to the Bank purchasing same from and after such date of purchase. The failure 
of any such Bank to make available to the Administrative Agent for the 
account of the Canadian Lender its Adjusted Percentage of the outstanding 
principal amount of Canadian Dollar Loans shall not relieve any other Bank of 
its obligation hereunder to make available to the Administrative Agent for 
the account of the Canadian Lender its Adjusted Percentage of the outstanding 
principal amount of Canadian Dollar Loans on the date required, as specified 
above, but no Bank shall be responsible for the failure of any other Bank to 
make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Canadian 
Lender such other Bank's Adjusted Percentage of any such payment. Each such 
Bank hereby irrevocably agrees to purchase its Adjusted Percentage of the 
outstanding Canadian Dollar Loans in the manner specified above and on the 
date specified above notwithstanding (i) whether any conditions specified in 
Section 5 are then satisfied, (ii) whether a Default or an Event of Default 
has occurred and is continuing, (iii) the date of such purchase and (iv) any 
reduction in the Total Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment or Adjusted Total 
Tranche A Commitment after any such Canadian Dollar Loans were made. 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the 

                                       -5-

extent any Bank determines that at the time of a purchase of Canadian Dollar 
Loans pursuant to this Section 1.01(g), it is unable to obtain Canadian 
Dollars with which to fund such purchase, it may, upon notice to the Canadian 
Lender and the Administrative Agent, fund such purchase in U.S. Dollars in an 
aggregate amount which the Canadian Lender determines, in its sole 
discretion, is equivalent to what the Canadian Lender would have received if 
such Bank had funded in Canadian Dollars.

            1.02 Minimum Borrowing Amounts, etc. The aggregate principal amount
of each Borrowing shall not be less than the Minimum Borrowing Amount for such
Loans. More than one Borrowing may be incurred on any day, provided that at no
time shall there be outstanding more than 15 Borrowings of Eurodollar Loans.

            1.03 Notice of Borrowing. (a) Whenever the Company desires to incur
Loans hereunder (excluding Swingline Loans, Canadian Dollar Loans, and Revolving
Loans incurred pursuant to a Mandatory Borrowing), it shall give the
Administrative Agent at its Notice Office, prior to 12:00 Noon (New York time),
at least three Business Days' prior written notice (or telephonic notice
promptly confirmed in writing) of each Borrowing of Eurodollar Loans and at
least one Business Day's prior written notice (or telephonic notice promptly
confirmed in writing) of each Borrowing of Base Rate Loans to be incurred
hereunder. Each such notice (each, together with each notice referred to in
Sections 1.03(b)(i) and 1.03(c), a "Notice of Borrowing"), except as otherwise
expressly provided in Section 1.10, shall be irrevocable, and, in the case of
each written notice and each confirmation of telephonic notice, shall be in the
form of Exhibit A, appropriately completed to specify (i) whether the Loans
being incurred pursuant to such Borrowing shall consist of Term Loans, Tranche A
Revolving Loans or Tranche B Revolving Loans, (ii) the aggregate principal
amount of such Loans to be made pursuant to such Borrowing, (iii) the date of
such Borrowing (which shall be a Business Day) and (iv) whether the respective
Borrowing shall consist of Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Loans and, if
Eurodollar Loans, the Interest Period to be initially applicable thereto. The
Administrative Agent shall promptly give each Bank which is required to make
Loans pursuant to the Borrowing specified in the respective Notice of Borrowing
written notice (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing) of each
proposed Borrowing, of such Bank's proportionate share thereof, if any, and of
the other matters covered by the Notice of Borrowing.

            (b) (i) Whenever the Company desires to incur a Borrowing of
Swingline Loans hereunder, it shall give Chase no later than 12:00 Noon (New
York time) on the day such Swingline Loan is to be made, written notice (or
telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing) of each Swingline Loan to be
incurred hereunder. Each such 

                                       -6-

Notice of Borrowing shall be irrevocable and shall specify in each case (x) 
the date of such Borrowing (which shall be a Business Day) and (y) the 
aggregate principal amount of the Swingline Loans to be incurred pursuant to 
such Borrowing.

            (ii) Mandatory Borrowings shall be made upon the notice specified in
Section 1.01(e), with the Company irrevocably agreeing, by its incurrence of any
Swingline Loan, to the making of Mandatory Borrowings as set forth in such
Section.

            (c) Whenever the Canadian Borrower desires to incur a Borrowing of
Canadian Dollar Loans hereunder, it shall give the Canadian Lender and the
Administrative Agent, prior to 12:00 Noon (New York time), at least three
Business Days' prior written notice (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in
writing) of each Borrowing of Eurodollar Loans and at least one Business Day's
prior written notice (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing) of
each Borrowing of Base Rate Loans to be incurred hereunder. Each such Notice of
Borrowing, except as otherwise expressly provided in Section 1.10, shall be
irrevocable and shall specify in each case (i) the date of such Borrowing (which
shall be a Business Day), (ii) the aggregate principal amount of the Canadian
Dollar Loan to be made pursuant to such Borrowing and (iii) whether the
respective Borrowing shall consist of Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Loans and,
if Eurodollar Loans, the Interest Period to be initially applicable thereto.

            (d) Without in any way limiting the obligation of either Borrower to
confirm in writing any telephonic notice permitted to be given hereunder, the
Administrative Agent, Chase (in the case of a Borrowing of Swingline Loans), the
Canadian Lender (in the case of a Borrowing of Canadian Dollar Loans) or the
Letter of Credit Issuer (in the case of the issuance of Letters of Credit), as
the case may be, may prior to receipt of written confirmation act without
liability upon the basis of such telephonic notice, believed by the
Administrative Agent, Chase, the Canadian Lender or the Letter of Credit Issuer,
as the case may be, in good faith to be from the chairman, a vice chairman, the
president, a vice president, a treasurer, an assistant treasurer or the director
of treasury operations of such Borrower. In each such case, each Borrower hereby
waives the right to dispute the Administrative Agent's, Chase's, the Canadian
Lender's or the Letter of Credit Issuer's record of the terms of such telephonic
notice.

            1.04 Disbursement of Funds. (a) No later than 1:00 P.M. (New York
time) on the date specified in each Notice of Borrowing relating to any Loans
other than Canadian Dollar Loans (or (x) in the case of Swingline Loans, no
later than 2:00 P.M. (New York time) on the date specified pursuant to Section
1.03(b)(i) or (y) in the case of Mandatory Borrowings, no later than 12:00 Noon
(New York time) on the date 

                                     -7-

specified in Section 1.01(e)), each Bank with a Commitment under the 
respective Tranche will make available its Pro Rata Share (if any) of each 
Borrowing of Loans requested to be made on such date in the manner provided 
below (or, in the case of Swingline Loans, Chase will make available the full 
amount thereof). All such amounts shall be made available to the 
Administrative Agent in U.S. Dollars and immediately available funds at the 
Payment Office and the Administrative Agent promptly will make available to 
the Company by depositing to its account at the Payment Office the aggregate 
of the amounts so made available in the type of funds received (other than in 
respect of Mandatory Borrowings). Unless the Administrative Agent shall have 
been notified by any Bank prior to the date of Borrowing of any Loans 
referred to in this Section 1.04(a) that such Bank does not intend to make 
available to the Administrative Agent its portion of the Borrowing or 
Borrowings to be made on such date, the Administrative Agent may assume that 
such Bank has made such amount available to the Administrative Agent on such 
date of Borrowing, and the Administrative Agent, in reliance upon such 
assumption, may (in its sole discretion and without any obligation to do so) 
make available to the Company a corresponding amount. If such corresponding 
amount is not in fact made available to the Administrative Agent by such Bank 
and the Administrative Agent has made available same to the Company, the 
Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover such corresponding amount 
from such Bank. If such Bank does not pay such corresponding amount forthwith 
upon the Administrative Agent's demand therefor, the Administrative Agent 
shall promptly notify the Company, and the Company shall immediately pay such 
corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent 
shall also be entitled to recover from the Bank or the Company, as the case 
may be, interest on such corresponding amount in respect of each day from the 
date such corresponding amount was made available by the Administrative Agent 
to the Company to the date such corresponding amount is recovered by the 
Administrative Agent, at a rate per annum equal to (x) if paid by such Bank, 
the overnight Federal Funds rate or (y) if paid by the Company, the then 
applicable rate of interest, calculated in accordance with Section 1.08, for 
the respective Loans. Nothing herein shall be deemed to relieve any Bank from 
its obligation to fulfill its commitments hereunder or to prejudice any 
rights which the Company may have against any Bank as a result of any failure 
by such Bank to make Loans hereunder.

            (b) No later than 1:00 P.M. (New York time) on the date specified in
each Notice of Borrowing relating to Canadian Dollar Loans, the Canadian Lender
will make available to the Canadian Borrower such Canadian Dollar Loans
requested to be made on such date, in Canadian Dollars and in immediately
available funds at the Canadian Payment Office.

                                       -8-

            1.05 Register. (a) The Administrative Agent shall maintain a
register for the recordation of the Commitments of the Banks from time to time
and the principal amount of the Term Loans, Tranche A Revolving Loans, Tranche B
Revolving Loans, Swingline Loans and Canadian Dollar Loans owing to each Bank
(the "Register"). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive and binding
for all purposes, absent manifest error. 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.

            (b) Each Borrower hereby agrees to provide a Note, promptly upon the
request of any Bank, to the extent such Bank has requested such Note in
connection with any pledge or assignment by such Bank of any or all of its Loans
hereunder to a Federal Reserve Bank.

            1.06 Conversions. Either Borrower shall have the option to convert
on any Business Day all or a portion at least equal to the applicable Minimum
Borrowing Amount of the outstanding principal amount of the Loans (other than
Swingline Loans, which at all times shall be maintained as Base Rate Loans)
owing by a Borrower into a Borrowing or Borrowings of another Type of Loan;
provided that (i) no such partial conversion of a Borrowing of Eurodollar Loans
shall reduce the outstanding principal amount of the Eurodollar Loans made
pursuant to such Borrowing to less than the Minimum Borrowing Amount applicable
thereto, (ii) Base Rate Loans may not be converted into Eurodollar Loans if a
Default or Event of Default is in existence and the Administrative Agent and/or
the Required Banks have notified the Company that such a conversion will not be
permitted as a result thereof and (iii) Borrowings of Eurodollar Loans resulting
from this Section 1.06 shall be limited in number as provided in Section 1.02.
Each such conversion shall be effected by the respective Borrower by giving the
Administrative Agent at its Notice Office (and, in the case of any proposed
conversion of Canadian Dollar Loans, the Canadian Lender at the Canadian Notice
Office), prior to 12:00 Noon (New York time), at least three Business Days (or
one Business Day in the case of a conversion into Base Rate Loans) prior written
notice (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing) (each a "Notice of
Conversion") specifying the Loans to be so converted, the Type of Loans to be
converted into and, if to be converted into a Borrowing of Eurodollar Loans, the
Interest Period to be initially applicable thereto. The Administrative Agent
shall give each Bank prompt notice of any such proposed conversion affecting any
of its Loans.

            1.07 Pro Rata Borrowings. All Borrowings of Term Loans, Tranche A
Revolving Loans and Tranche B Revolving Loans under this Agreement shall be made
by the Banks pro rata on the basis of their Term Loan Commitments, Tranche A

                                       -9-

Revolving Loan Commitments or Tranche B Revolving Loan Commitments, as the case
may be, provided that all Borrowings of Tranche A Revolving Loans made pursuant
to a Mandatory Borrowing shall be incurred from the Banks with Tranche A
Revolving Loan Commitments pro rata on the basis of their Adjusted Percentages.
It is understood that no Bank shall be responsible for any default by any other
Bank of its obligation to make Loans hereunder and that each Bank shall be
obligated to make the Loans to be made by it hereunder, regardless of the
failure of any other Bank to make its Loans hereunder.

            1.08 Interest. (a) The unpaid principal amount of each Base Rate
Loan shall bear interest from the date of the Borrowing thereof until maturity
(whether by acceleration or otherwise) at a rate per annum which shall at all
times be the Applicable Margin plus the Base Rate in effect from time to time.

            (b) The unpaid principal amount of each Eurodollar Loan shall bear
interest from the date of the Borrowing thereof until maturity (whether by
acceleration or otherwise) at a rate per annum which shall at all times be the
Applicable Margin plus the relevant Eurodollar Rate.

            (c) Overdue principal and, to the extent permitted by law, overdue
interest in respect of each Loan shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal
to the Base Rate in effect from time to time plus the sum of (i) 2% and (ii) the
Applicable Margin for Base Rate Loans; provided that principal in respect of
Eurodollar Loans shall bear interest after the same becomes due (whether by
acceleration or otherwise) until the end of the applicable Interest Period for
such Eurodollar Loan at a per annum rate equal to 2% in excess of the rate of
interest applicable on the due date therefor.

            (d) Interest shall accrue from and including the date of any
Borrowing to but excluding the date of any repayment thereof and shall be
payable (i) in respect of each Base Rate Loan, quarterly in arrears on the last
Business Day of each March, June, September and December, (ii) in respect of
each Eurodollar Loan, on the last day of each Interest Period applicable thereto
and, in the case of an Interest Period in excess of three months, on each date
occurring at three month intervals after the first day of such Interest Period
and (iii) in respect of each Loan, on any prepayment or conversion (on the
amount prepaid or converted), at maturity (whether by acceleration or otherwise)
and, after such maturity, on demand.

            (e) All computations of interest hereunder shall be made in
accordance with Section 12.07(b).

                                      -10-

            (f) The Administrative Agent, upon determining the interest rate for
any Borrowing of Eurodollar Loans for any Interest Period, shall promptly notify
the respective Borrower and the Banks thereof.

            1.09 Interest Periods. At the time either Borrower gives a Notice 
of Borrowing or Notice of Conversion in respect of the making of, or 
conversion into, a Borrowing of Eurodollar Loans (in the case of the initial 
Interest Period applicable thereto) or prior to 12:00 Noon (New York time) on 
the third Business Day prior to the expiration of an Interest Period 
applicable to a Borrowing of Eurodollar Loans, it shall have the right to 
elect by giving the Administrative Agent written notice (or telephonic notice 
promptly confirmed in writing) of the Interest Period applicable to such 
Borrowing, which Interest Period shall, at the option of the respective 
Borrower, be a one, two, three, six or, if available to each of the Banks (as 
determined by each such Bank in good faith based on prevailing conditions in 
the interbank Eurodollar market on any date of determination thereof) 
(available to the Canadian Lender in the case of the Canadian Dollar Loans), 
nine or twelve month period. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary 
contained above:

           (i) the initial Interest Period for any Borrowing of Eurodollar Loans
      shall commence on the date of such Borrowing (including the date of any
      conversion from a Borrowing of Base Rate Loans) and each Interest Period
      occurring thereafter in respect of such Borrowing shall commence on the
      day on which the next preceding Interest Period applicable thereto
      expires;

           (ii) if any Interest Period begins on a day for which there is no
      numerically corresponding day in the calendar month at the end of such
      Interest Period, such Interest Period shall end on the last Business Day
      of such calendar month;

           (iii) if any Interest Period would otherwise expire on a day which is
      not a Business Day, such Interest Period shall expire on the next
      succeeding Business Day, provided that if any Interest Period would
      otherwise expire on a day which is not a Business Day but is a day of the
      month after which no further Business Day occurs in such month, such
      Interest Period shall expire on the next preceding Business Day;

           (iv) no Interest Period shall extend beyond the Final Maturity Date;
      and

                                      -11-

           (v) no Interest Period may be elected at any time when a Default or
      Event of Default is then in existence and the Administrative Agent and/or
      the Required Banks have notified the Company that such an election will
      not be permitted as a result thereof.

If upon the expiration of any Interest Period, the respective Borrower has
failed to elect a new Interest Period to be applicable to the respective
Borrowing of Eurodollar Loans as provided above, or a Default or an Event of
Default then exists and the Administrative Agent and/or the Required Banks have
given the notice referred to in clause (v) above, such Borrower shall be deemed
to have elected to convert such Borrowing into a Borrowing of Base Rate Loans
effective as of the expiration date of such current Interest Period.

            1.10 Increased Costs, Illegality, etc. (a) In the event that (x) in
the case of clause (i) below, the Administrative Agent (or the Canadian Lender
in the case of Canadian Dollar Loans) or (y) in the case of clauses (ii) and
(iii) below, any Bank, shall have determined (which determination shall, absent
manifest error, be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto):

           (i) on any date for determining the Eurodollar Rate for any Interest
      Period that, by reason of any changes arising after the date of this
      Agreement affecting the interbank Eurodollar market, adequate and fair
      means do not exist for ascertaining the applicable interest rate on the
      basis provided for in the definition of Eurodollar Rate; or

           (ii) at any time, that such Bank shall incur increased costs or
      reductions in the amounts received or receivable hereunder with respect to
      any Eurodollar Loans because of (x) any change since the date of this
      Agreement in any applicable law, governmental rule, regulation, guideline,
      order or request (whether or not having the force of law), or in the
      interpretation or administration thereof and including the introduction of
      any new law or governmental rule, regulation, guideline, order or request
      such as, for example, but not limited to, (A) a change since the Effective
      Date in the basis of taxation of payment to any Bank of the principal of
      or interest on the Loans or any other amounts payable hereunder (except
      for changes with respect to Taxes and those taxes described in clauses (x)
      and (y) of the proviso in the second sentence of Section 4.04) or (B) a
      change since the Effective Date in official reserve requirements, but, in
      all events, excluding reserves required under Regulation D to the extent
      included in

                                      -12-

      the computation of the Eurodollar Rate and/or (y) other circumstances 
      affecting such Bank, the interbank Eurodollar market or the position of 
      such Bank in such market; or

           (iii) at any time since the Effective Date, that the making or
      continuance of any Eurodollar Loan has become unlawful by compliance by
      such Bank in good faith with any law, governmental rule, regulation,
      guideline or order (or would conflict with any such governmental rule,
      regulation, guideline or order not having the force of law but with which
      such Bank customarily complies even though the failure to comply therewith
      would not be unlawful), or has become impracticable as a result of a
      contingency occurring after the Effective Date which materially and
      adversely affects the interbank Eurodollar market;

then, and in any such event, such Bank (or the Administrative Agent in the 
case of clause (i) above) shall (x) on such date and (y) within 10 Business 
Days of the date on which such event no longer exists give notice (by 
telephone confirmed in writing) to each Borrower and (except in the case of 
clause (i)) to the Administrative Agent of such determination (which notice 
the Administrative Agent shall promptly transmit to each of the other Banks). 
Thereafter (x) in the case of clause (i) above, Eurodollar Loans shall no 
longer be available until such time as the Administrative Agent notifies the 
Borrowers and the Banks that the circumstances giving rise to such notice by 
the Administrative Agent no longer exist, and any Notice of Borrowing or 
Notice of Conversion given by a Borrower with respect to Eurodollar Loans 
which have not yet been incurred shall be deemed rescinded by such Borrower, 
(y) in the case of clause (ii) above, the Company (or, in the case of 
Canadian Dollar Loans, each of the Company and the Canadian Borrower) agrees 
to pay to such Bank, upon written demand therefor (accompanied by the written 
notice referred to below), such additional amounts (in the form of an 
increased rate of, or a different method of calculating, interest or 
otherwise as such Bank in its sole discretion shall determine) as shall be 
required to compensate such Bank for such increased costs or reductions in 
amounts received or receivable hereunder (a written notice as to the 
additional amounts owed to such Bank, showing the basis for the calculation 
thereof, submitted to the respective Borrower by such Bank shall, absent 
manifest error, be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto) 
and (z) in the case of clause (iii) above, the respective Borrower shall take 
one of the actions specified in Section 1.10(b) as promptly as possible and, 
in any event, within the time period required by law.

            (b) At any time that any Eurodollar Loan is affected by the
circumstances described in Section 1.10(a)(ii) or (iii), the respective Borrower
may (and in the case of 

                                      -13-

a Eurodollar Loan affected pursuant to Section 1.10(a)(iii) the respective 
Borrower shall) either (i) if the affected Eurodollar Loan is then being made 
pursuant to a Borrowing, cancel said Borrowing by giving the Administrative 
Agent telephonic notice (confirmed promptly in writing) thereof promptly (but 
in any event no later than the later of (x) the Business Day next preceding 
the date of such Borrowing and (y) one Business Day after the respective 
Borrower was notified by a Bank pursuant to Section 1.10(a)(ii) or (iii)), or 
(ii) if the affected Eurodollar Loan is then outstanding, upon at least three 
Business Days' notice to the Administrative Agent, require the affected Bank 
to convert each such Eurodollar Loan into a Base Rate Loan (which conversion, 
in the case of the circumstances described in Section 1.10(a)(iii), shall 
occur no later than the last day of the Interest Period then applicable to 
such Eurodollar Loan (or such earlier date as shall be required by applicable 
law)); provided that if more than one Bank is affected at any time, then all 
affected Banks must be treated the same pursuant to this Section 1.10(b).

            (c) (i) If any Bank shall have determined that after the 
Effective Date, the adoption of any applicable law, rule or regulation 
regarding capital adequacy, or any change therein, or any change in the 
interpretation or administration thereof by any governmental authority, 
central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or 
administration thereof, or compliance by such Bank with any request or 
directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) 
of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency, has or would have 
the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Bank's capital or assets as 
a consequence of its commitments or obligations hereunder to a level below 
that which such Bank could have achieved but for such adoption, change or 
compliance (taking into consideration such Bank's policies with respect to 
capital adequacy), then from time to time, within 15 days after demand by 
such Bank (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), accompanied by the 
notice referred to in the last sentence of this clause (i), the Company shall 
pay to such Bank such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such 
Bank for such reduction. Each Bank, upon determining in good faith that any 
additional amounts will be payable pursuant to this Section 1.10(c), will 
give prompt written notice thereof to the Company, which notice shall set 
forth the basis of the calculation of such additional amounts, although the 
failure to give any such notice shall not release or diminish the Company's 
obligations to pay additional amounts pursuant to this Section 1.10(c).

            (ii) If (x) any Bank becomes a Defaulting Bank or otherwise defaults
in its obligations to make Loans or fund Unpaid Drawings, (y) any Bank has
notified the Borrower that one of its Eurodollar Loans is affected by the
circumstances described in Section 1.10(a)(ii) or (iii), or (z) any Bank is owed
increased costs or other amounts under Section 1.10(c)(i), 2.06 or 4.04 and, in
the case of such clause (y) or (z), 

                                      -14-

compensation or other action with respect to such event is not otherwise 
requested generally by the other Banks, the Company shall have the right, if 
no Default or Event of Default then exists and, in the case of a Bank 
described in clause (y) or (z) above, such Bank has not changed its 
applicable lending office with the effect of eliminating such increased cost, 
to replace such Bank (the "Replaced Bank") with another commercial bank or 
banks or other financial institutions (collectively, the "Replacement Bank") 
reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent, and, in the case of any 
Replaced Bank with a Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment, the Canadian Lender 
and the Letter of Credit Issuer, provided that (i) at the time of any 
replacement pursuant to this Section 1.10(c)(ii), the Replacement Bank shall 
enter into one or more assignment agreements pursuant to Section 12.04(b) 
hereof (and with all fees payable pursuant to said Section 12.04(b) to be 
paid by the Replacement Bank) pursuant to which the Replacement Bank shall 
acquire all of the Commitments and outstanding Loans of, and participations 
in Letters of Credit by, the Replaced Bank and, in connection therewith, 
shall pay to the Replaced Bank (or the Letter of Credit Issuer in the case of 
the proviso contained in clause (b) below, the Canadian Lender in the case of 
clause (c) below or Chase in the case of clause (d) below) in respect thereof 
an amount equal to the sum of (a) an amount equal to the principal of, and 
all accrued interest on, all outstanding Loans of the Replaced Bank, (b) an 
amount equal to the sum of such Replaced Bank's Adjusted Percentage (for this 
purpose, determined as if the adjustment described in clause (y) of the 
immediately succeeding sentence had been made with respect to such Replaced 
Bank) of all Unpaid Drawings and all then unpaid interest with respect 
thereto at such time, provided that in the event such Replaced Bank did not 
reimburse the Letter of Credit Issuer pursuant to Section 2.05(c) in respect 
of any Unpaid Drawing, such amount shall instead be paid to the Letter of 
Credit Issuer, (c) an amount equal to any unpaid obligation of the Replaced 
Bank pursuant to Section 1.01(g), which amount shall be paid to the Canadian 
Lender, (d) an amount equal to any unpaid obligation of the Replaced Bank 
pursuant to Section 1.01(e), which amount shall be paid to Chase, and (e) an 
amount equal to all accrued, but theretofore unpaid, Fees owing to the 
Replaced Bank pursuant to Section 3.01 hereof and (ii) all obligations of 
each Borrower owing to the Replaced Bank (other than those specifically 
described in clause (i) above in respect of which the assignment purchase 
price has been, or is concurrently being, paid) shall be paid in full to such 
Replaced Bank concurrently with such replacement. Upon the execution of the 
respective assignment documentation pursuant to clause (i) above and the 
payment of amounts referred to in clauses (i) above and (ii) above, (x) the 
Replacement Bank shall become a Bank or Banks hereunder, as the case may be, 
and the Replaced Bank shall cease to constitute a Bank hereunder, except with 
respect to indemnification provisions (including, without limitation, 
Sections 1.10, 1.11, 2.06, 4.04, 11.07 and 12.01 of this Agreement) under 
this Agreement, which shall survive as to such Replaced 

                                      -15-

Bank and (y) the Adjusted Percentages of the Banks shall be automatically 
adjusted at such time to give effect to such replacement (and to give effect 
to the replacement of a Defaulting Bank with one or more Non-Defaulting 
Banks).

            1.11 Compensation. The Company (or, in the case of Canadian 
Dollar Loans, each of the Company and the Canadian Borrower) agrees to 
compensate each Bank in the appropriate currency, upon its written request 
(which request shall set forth the basis for requesting such compensation), 
for all reasonable losses, expenses and liabilities (including, without 
limitation, any loss, expense or liability incurred by reason of the 
liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds required by such Bank 
to fund its Eurodollar Loans but excluding loss of anticipated profit with 
respect to any Loans) which such Bank may sustain: (i) if for any reason 
(other than a default by such Bank or the Administrative Agent) a Borrowing 
of Eurodollar Loans does not occur on a date specified therefor in a Notice 
of Borrowing or Notice of Conversion (whether or not withdrawn by the 
respective Borrower or deemed withdrawn pursuant to Section 1.10(a)); (ii) if 
any repayment, prepayment or conversion of any Eurodollar Loans occurs on a 
date which is not the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto; 
(iii) if any prepayment of any Eurodollar Loans is not made on any date 
specified in a notice of prepayment given by a Borrower; or (iv) as a 
consequence of (x) any other default by a Borrower to repay its Loans when 
required by the terms of this Agreement or (y) an election made pursuant to 
Section 1.10(b). Calculation of all amounts payable to a Bank under this 
Section 1.11 shall be made as though that Bank had actually funded its 
relevant Eurodollar Loan through the purchase of a Eurodollar deposit bearing 
interest at the Eurodollar Rate in an amount equal to the amount of that 
Loan, having a maturity comparable to the relevant Interest Period and 
through the transfer of such Eurodollar deposit from an offshore office of 
that Bank to a domestic office of that Bank in the United States of America 
(or Canada, in the case of Canadian Dollar Loans); provided, however, that 
each Bank may fund each of its Eurodollar Loans in any manner it sees fit and 
the foregoing assumption shall be utilized only for the calculation of 
amounts payable under this Section 1.11.

            1.12 Change of Lending Office. Each Bank agrees that, upon the
occurrence of any event giving rise to the operation of Section 1.10(a)(ii) or
(iii), Section 1.10(c)(i), 2.06 or 4.04 with respect to such Bank, it will, if
requested by the respective Borrower, use reasonable efforts (subject to overall
policy considerations of such Bank) to designate another lending office for any
Loans or Letters of Credit affected by such event; provided that such
designation is made on such terms that in the sole judgment of such Bank, such
Bank and its lending office suffer no economic, legal or regulatory
disadvantage, with the object of avoiding the consequences of the event giving
rise to the 

                                      -16-

operation of any such Section. Nothing in this Section 1.12 shall affect or 
postpone any of the obligations of either Borrower or the right of any Bank 
provided in Sections 1.10, 2.06 or 4.04.

            1.13 Tranche B Commitments. At any time and from time to time on 
and after the Effective Date and prior to June 30, 1999, the Company may 
request one or more Banks or other lending institutions to assume a Tranche B 
Revolving Loan Commitment and to make Tranche B Revolving Loans to the 
Company as provided in Section 1.01(c) and, in the sole discretion of each 
such Bank or other institution, any such Bank or other institution may agree 
to so commit; provided that (i) no Default or Event of Default then exists, 
(ii) the increase in the Total Tranche B Revolving Loan Commitment pursuant 
to any such request shall be in an aggregate amount of at least $50,000,000 
and (iii) after giving effect to each such increase, the Total Tranche B 
Revolving Loan Commitment shall not exceed $250,000,000. The Company and each 
such Bank or other lending institution (each an "Assuming Bank") which agrees 
to commit to make Tranche B Revolving Loans shall execute and deliver to the 
Administrative Agent a Tranche B Assumption Agreement substantially in the 
form of Exhibit B (with the increase in, or in the case of a new Assuming 
Bank, assumption of, such Bank's Tranche B Revolving Loan Commitment to be 
effective upon delivery of such Tranche B Assumption Agreement to the 
Administrative Agent). The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each 
Bank as to the occurrence of the Initial Tranche B Assumption Date and as to 
each Additional Tranche B Assumption Date occurring thereafter. On each 
Tranche B Assumption Date, (x) Annex I shall be deemed modified to reflect 
the revised Tranche B Revolving Loan Commitments of such Banks, and (y) the 
Company shall pay to each such Assuming Bank such up front fee (if any) as 
may have been agreed between the Company and such Assuming Bank. 
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, in 
connection with any increase in the Total Tranche B Revolving Loan Commitment 
after the Initial Tranche B Assumption Date, the Company shall, in 
coordination with the Administrative Agent and the Banks with Tranche B 
Revolving Loan Commitments, repay outstanding Tranche B Revolving Loans of 
certain Banks and, if necessary, incur additional Tranche B Revolving Loans 
from other Banks, in each case so that such Banks participate in each 
Borrowing of Tranche B Revolving Loans pro rata on the basis of their Tranche 
B Revolving Loan Commitments (after giving effect to any increase thereof). 
It is hereby agreed that any breakage costs of the type described in Section 
1.11 incurred by the Banks in connection with the repayment of Tranche B 
Revolving Loans contemplated by this Section 1.13 shall be for the account of 
the Company.

                                      -17-

            SECTION 2.  Letters of Credit.

            2.01 Letters of Credit. (a) Subject to and upon the terms and
conditions herein set forth, the Company may request the Letter of Credit Issuer
at any time and from time to time on or after the Initial Borrowing Date and
prior to the Business Day next preceding the Final Maturity Date to issue, for
the account of the Company and in support of (x) trade obligations of the
Company and/or its Restricted Subsidiaries and/or (y) on a standby basis, such
other obligations (contingent or otherwise) of the Company and/or its Restricted
Subsidiaries to any other Person, in each case, that arise in the ordinary
course of business and are in respect of general corporate purposes (including,
without limitation, in connection with Permitted Acquisitions) of the Company
and/or its Restricted Subsidiaries, and subject to and upon the terms and
conditions herein set forth the Letter of Credit Issuer agrees to issue from
time to time, irrevocable letters of credit in such form as may be approved by
the Letter of Credit Issuer and the Administrative Agent (each such letter of
credit, and each letter of credit described in Section 2.01(c), a "Letter of
Credit" and collectively, the "Letters of Credit").

            (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) no Letter of Credit shall 
be issued the Stated Amount of which, when added to the Letter of Credit 
Outstandings at such time, would exceed either (x) $40,000,000 or (y) when 
added to the aggregate principal amount of all Tranche A Revolving Loans made 
by Non-Defaulting Banks and Swingline Loans and the Dollar Equivalent of the 
aggregate principal amount of Canadian Dollar Loans then outstanding, the 
Adjusted Total Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment at such time; (ii) each 
Letter of Credit shall have an expiry date occurring not later than two years 
after such Letter of Credit's date of issuance, provided that standby Letters 
of Credit may provide that, absent notice to the contrary from the Letter of 
Credit Issuer to the beneficiary thereof, the expiry date shall be 
automatically extended for successive one year periods and (iii) no Letter of 
Credit shall have an expiry date occurring later than the Business Day next 
preceding the Final Maturity Date.

            (c) Annex III attached hereto contains a description of all letters
of credit issued or deemed issued and outstanding under the Existing Credit
Agreements on the Initial Borrowing Date. Each such letter of credit, including
any extension thereof (each, an "Existing Letter of Credit") shall constitute a
"Letter of Credit" for all purposes of this Agreement, issued, for purposes of
Section 2.05(a), on the Initial Borrowing Date.

            2.02 Minimum Stated Amount. The initial Stated Amount of each Letter
of Credit shall be not less than $5,000 or such lesser amount acceptable to the
Letter of Credit Issuer, provided that no more than 40 Letters of Credit
(including Existing Letters 

                                      -18-

of Credit) (or such greater number acceptable to the Letter of Credit Issuer) 
shall be outstanding at any one time.

            2.03 Letter of Credit Requests; Notices of Issuance. (a) Whenever it
desires that a Letter of Credit be issued, the Company shall give the
Administrative Agent and the Letter of Credit Issuer written notice (or
telephonic notice confirmed in writing) thereof prior to 12:00 Noon (New York
time) at least five Business Days' (or such shorter period as may be acceptable
to the Letter of Credit Issuer) prior to the proposed date of issuance (which
shall be a Business Day) (each a "Letter of Credit Request"), which Letter of
Credit Request shall include an application for such Letter of Credit and any
other documents that the Letter of Credit Issuer customarily requires in
connection therewith. The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Bank
of each Letter of Credit Request.

            (b) The Letter of Credit Issuer shall, on the date of each issuance
of a Letter of Credit by it or amendment thereto, give the Administrative Agent,
each Bank and the Company written notice of the issuance or amendment of such
Letter of Credit, accompanied by a copy to the Administrative Agent of the
Letter of Credit or Letters of Credit issued by it or of the amendment thereto.

            2.04 Agreement to Repay Letter of Credit Drawings. (a) The Company
hereby agrees to reimburse the Letter of Credit Issuer, by making payment to the
Administrative Agent in immediately available funds at the Payment Office, for
any payment or disbursement made by the Letter of Credit Issuer under any Letter
of Credit issued by it (each such amount so paid or disbursed until reimbursed,
an "Unpaid Drawing") no later than one Business Day following the date of such
payment or disbursement, with interest on the amount so paid or disbursed by the
Letter of Credit Issuer, to the extent not reimbursed prior to 1:00 P.M. (New
York time) on the date of such payment or disbursement, from and including the
date paid or disbursed to but not including the date the Letter of Credit Issuer
is reimbursed therefor at a rate per annum which shall be the Applicable Margin
for Base Rate Loans plus the Base Rate as in effect from time to time (plus an
additional 2% per annum if not reimbursed by the third Business Day after the
date of such payment or disbursement), such interest also to be payable on
demand. The Letter of Credit Issuer shall provide the Company prompt notice of
any payment or disbursement made by it under any Letter of Credit issued by it,
although the failure of, or delay in, giving any such notice shall not release
or diminish the obligations of the Company under this Section 2.04(a) or under
any other Section of this Agreement.

                                      -19-

            (b) The Company's obligation under this Section 2.04 to reimburse
the Letter of Credit Issuer with respect to Unpaid Drawings (including, in each
case, interest thereon) shall be absolute and unconditional under any and all
circumstances, including, without limitation, those set forth in Section
2.05(e)(i) through (v), inclusive, and irrespective of any setoff, counterclaim
or defense to payment which the Company may have or have had against the Letter
of Credit Issuer, the Administrative Agent or any Bank, including, without
limitation, any defense based upon the failure of any drawing under a Letter of
Credit to conform to the terms of the Letter of Credit or any non-application or
misapplication by the beneficiary of the proceeds of such drawing; provided,
however, that the Company shall not be obligated to reimburse the Letter of
Credit Issuer for any wrongful payment made by the Letter of Credit Issuer under
a Letter of Credit as a result of acts or omissions constituting willful
misconduct or gross negligence on the part of the Letter of Credit Issuer.

            2.05 Letter of Credit Participations. (a) Immediately upon the 
issuance by the Letter of Credit Issuer of any Letter of Credit, the Letter 
of Credit Issuer shall be deemed to have sold and transferred to each other 
Bank with a Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment, and each such Bank (each a 
"Participant") shall be deemed irrevocably and unconditionally to have 
purchased and received from such Letter of Credit Issuer, without recourse or 
warranty, an undivided interest and participation, to the extent of such 
Bank's Adjusted Percentage, in such Letter of Credit, each substitute letter 
of credit, each drawing made thereunder and the obligations of the Company 
under this Agreement with respect thereto (although Letter of Credit Fees 
shall be payable directly to the Administrative Agent for the account of the 
Banks as provided in Section 3.01(b) and the Participants shall have no right 
to receive any portion of any Facing Fees) and any security therefor or 
guaranty pertaining thereto. Upon any change in the Tranche A Revolving Loan 
Commitments or Adjusted Percentages of the Banks pursuant to Section 
1.10(c)(ii) or 12.04(b) or otherwise, or upon the occurrence of a Bank 
Default, it is hereby agreed that, with respect to all outstanding Letters of 
Credit and Unpaid Drawings, there shall be an automatic adjustment to the 
participations pursuant to this Section 2.05 to reflect the new Adjusted 
Percentages of the assigning and assignee Banks or of all Non-Defaulting 
Banks, as the case may be.

            (b) In determining whether to pay under any Letter of Credit, the
Letter of Credit Issuer shall not have any obligation relative to the
Participants other than to determine that any documents required to be delivered
under such Letter of Credit have been delivered and that they appear to comply
on their face with the requirements of such Letter of Credit. Any action taken
or omitted to be taken by the Letter of Credit Issuer under or in connection
with any Letter of Credit if taken or omitted in the absence of 

                                      -20-

gross negligence
or willful misconduct, shall not create for the Letter of Credit Issuer any
resulting liability.

            (c) In the event that the Letter of Credit Issuer makes any 
payment under any Letter of Credit and the Company shall not have reimbursed 
such amount in full to the Letter of Credit Issuer pursuant to Section 
2.04(a), the Letter of Credit Issuer shall promptly notify the Administrative 
Agent, and the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Participant of 
such failure, and each Participant shall promptly and unconditionally pay to 
the Administrative Agent for the account of the Letter of Credit Issuer, the 
amount of such Participant's Adjusted Percentage of such unreimbursed payment 
in U.S. Dollars and in same day funds; provided, however, that no Participant 
shall be obligated to pay to the Administrative Agent its Adjusted Percentage 
of such unreimbursed amount for any wrongful payment made by the Letter of 
Credit Issuer under a Letter of Credit as a result of acts or omissions 
constituting willful misconduct or gross negligence on the part of the Letter 
of Credit Issuer. If the Administrative Agent so notifies any Participant 
required to fund a payment under a Letter of Credit prior to 11:00 A.M. (New 
York time) on any Business Day, such Participant shall make available to the 
Administrative Agent for the account of the Letter of Credit Issuer such 
Participant's Adjusted Percentage of the amount of such payment on such 
Business Day in same day funds. If and to the extent such Participant shall 
not have so made its Adjusted Percentage of the amount of such payment 
available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Letter of Credit 
Issuer, such Participant agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for the 
account of the Letter of Credit Issuer, forthwith on demand such amount, 
together with interest thereon, for each day from such date until the date 
such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Letter 
of Credit Issuer at the overnight Federal Funds rate. The failure of any 
Participant to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of 
the Letter of Credit Issuer its Adjusted Percentage of any payment under any 
Letter of Credit shall not relieve any other Participant of its obligation 
hereunder to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of 
the Letter of Credit Issuer its Adjusted Percentage of any payment under any 
Letter of Credit on the date required, as specified above, but no Participant 
shall be responsible for the failure of any other Participant to make 
available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Letter of Credit 
Issuer such other Participant's Adjusted Percentage of any such payment.

            (d) Whenever the Letter of Credit Issuer receives a payment of a
reimbursement obligation as to which the Administrative Agent has received for
the account of the Letter of Credit Issuer any payments from the Participants
pursuant to clause (c) above, the Letter of Credit Issuer shall pay to the
Administrative Agent and 

                                      -21-

the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to each Participant which has 
paid its Adjusted Percentage thereof, in U.S. Dollars and in same day funds, 
an amount equal to such Participant's Adjusted Percentage of the principal 
amount thereof and interest thereon accruing after the purchase of the 
respective participations.

            (e) The obligations of the Participants to make payments to the
Administrative Agent for the account of the Letter of Credit Issuer with respect
to Letters of Credit shall be irrevocable and not subject to counterclaim,
set-off or other defense or any other qualification or exception whatsoever and
shall be made in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement
under all circumstances, including, without limitation, any of the following
circumstances:

           (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement or any
      of the other Credit Documents;

           (ii) the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other right
      which the Company may have at any time against a beneficiary named in a
      Letter of Credit, any transferee of any Letter of Credit (or any Person
      for whom any such transferee may be acting), the Administrative Agent, the
      Letter of Credit Issuer, any Bank, or other Person, whether in connection
      with this Agreement, any Letter of Credit, the transactions contemplated
      herein or any unrelated transactions (including any underlying transaction
      between the Company and the beneficiary named in any such Letter of
      Credit);

           (iii) any draft, certificate or other document presented under the
      Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient
      in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any
      respect;

           (iv) the surrender or impairment of any security for the performance
      or observance of any of the terms of any of the Credit Documents; or

           (v) the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default.

            2.06 Increased Costs. If at any time after the Effective Date, the
adoption of any applicable law, rule or regulation, or any change therein, or
any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any governmental
authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or
administration thereof, or compliance by the Letter of Credit Issuer or any
Participant with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of
law) by any such authority, central bank or 

                                      -22-

comparable agency shall either (i) impose, modify or make applicable any 
reserve, deposit, capital adequacy or similar requirement against Letters of 
Credit issued by the Letter of Credit Issuer or such Participant's 
participation therein, or (ii) impose on the Letter of Credit Issuer or any 
Participant any other conditions affecting this Agreement, any Letter of 
Credit or such Participant's participation therein; and the result of any of 
the foregoing is to increase the cost to the Letter of Credit Issuer or such 
Participant of issuing, maintaining or participating in any Letter of Credit, 
or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by the Letter of 
Credit Issuer or such Participant hereunder, then, upon demand to the Company 
by the Letter of Credit Issuer or such Participant (a copy of which notice 
shall be sent by the Letter of Credit Issuer or such Participant to the 
Administrative Agent), accompanied by the certificate described in the last 
sentence of this Section 2.06, the Company shall pay to the Letter of Credit 
Issuer or such Participant such additional amount or amounts as will 
compensate the Letter of Credit Issuer or such Participant for such increased 
cost or reduction. A certificate submitted to the Company by the Letter of 
Credit Issuer or such Participant, as the case may be (a copy of which 
certificate shall be sent by the Letter of Credit Issuer or such Participant 
to the Administrative Agent), setting forth the basis for the determination 
of such additional amount or amounts necessary to compensate the Letter of 
Credit Issuer or such Participant as aforesaid shall be final and conclusive 
and binding on the Company absent manifest error, although the failure to 
deliver any such certificate shall not release or diminish the Company's 
obligations to pay additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.06.

            SECTION 3.  Fees; Commitments.

            3.01 Fees. (a) The Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent
for distribution to each Non-Defaulting Bank with a Revolving Loan Commitment a
commitment fee (the "Commitment Fee") for the period from the Effective Date to
but not including the date the Total Revolving Loan Commitment has been
terminated, computed at a per annum rate equal to the Applicable Commitment Fee
Percentage on the daily average Aggregate Unutilized Revolving Loan Commitment
of such Non-Defaulting Bank. Accrued Commitment Fees shall be due and payable
quarterly in arrears on the last Business Day of March, June, September and
December of each year and the date upon which the Total Revolving Loan
Commitment is terminated.

            (b) The Company shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the
account of each Non-Defaulting Bank with a Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment
pro rata on the basis of their respective Adjusted Percentages, a fee in respect
of each Letter of 

                                      -23-

Credit (the "Letter of Credit Fee") computed at a rate equal to the 
Applicable Letter of Credit Fee Percentage on the average daily Stated Amount 
of such Letter of Credit. Accrued Letter of Credit Fees shall be due and 
payable quarterly in arrears on the last Business Day of each March, June, 
September and December of each year and on the date upon which the Total 
Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment shall be terminated.

            (c) The Company shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the
account of the Letter of Credit Issuer a fee in respect of each Letter of Credit
issued by it (the "Facing Fee") computed at the rate of 1/4 of 1% per annum on
the average daily Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit. Accrued Facing Fees
shall be due and payable quarterly in arrears on the last Business Day of each
March, June, September and December of each year and on the date upon which the
Total Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment shall be terminated.

            (d) The Company hereby agrees to pay directly to the Letter of
Credit Issuer upon each issuance of, drawing under, and/or amendment of, a
Letter of Credit issued by it such amount as shall at the time of such issuance,
drawing or amendment be the administrative charge which the Letter of Credit
Issuer is customarily charging for issuances of, drawings under or amendments
of, letters of credit issued by it.

            (e) The Company shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for its own
account, such other fees as have been agreed to in writing by the Company and
the Administrative Agent.

            (f) All computations of Fees shall be made in accordance with
Section 12.07(b).

            3.02 Voluntary Reduction of Commitments. Upon at least three
Business Days' prior written notice (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in
writing) to the Administrative Agent at its Notice Office (which notice the
Administrative Agent shall promptly transmit to each of the Banks), the Company
shall have the right, without premium or penalty, to terminate or partially
reduce the Total Unutilized Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment and/or the Total
Unutilized Tranche B Revolving Loan Commitment; provided that (v) any such
termination or partial reduction shall apply to proportionately and permanently
reduce the Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment or the Tranche B Revolving Loan
Commitment, as the case may be, of each of the Banks with such Commitments, (w)
any partial reduction pursuant to this Section 3.02 shall be in the amount of at
least $2,000,000, (x) the reduction to the Total Unutilized Tranche A Revolving
Loan Commitment shall in no case be in an amount which would cause the 

                                      -24-

Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment of any Bank to be reduced (as required by 
the preceding clause (v)) by an amount which exceeds the remainder of (i) the 
Aggregate Unutilized Tranche A Commitment of such Bank as in effect 
immediately before giving effect to such reduction minus (ii) such Bank's 
Adjusted Percentage of the sum of (A) the aggregate principal amount of 
Swingline Loans then outstanding and (B) the Dollar Equivalent of the 
aggregate principal amount of Canadian Dollar Loans then outstanding, (y) 
each reduction to the Total Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment pursuant to 
this Section 3.02 shall reduce the then remaining Scheduled A Commitment 
Reductions on a pro rata basis (based upon the then remaining principal 
amount of each such Scheduled A Commitment Reduction) and (z) each reduction 
to the Total Tranche B Revolving Loan Commitment pursuant to this Section 
3.02 shall reduce the then remaining Scheduled B Commitment Reductions on a 
pro rata basis (based upon the then remaining principal amount of each such 
Scheduled B Commitment Reduction).

            3.03 Mandatory Reduction of Commitments, etc. (a) The Total
Commitment (and the Term Loan Commitment, the Tranche A Revolving Loan
Commitment and the Tranche B Revolving Loan Commitment of each Bank) shall
terminate in its entirety on June 7, 1996 unless the Initial Borrowing Date has
occurred on or before such date.

            (b) Subject to Sections 3.02 and 3.03(f), the Total Tranche A 
Revolving Loan Commitment (and the Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment of 
each Bank with such a Commitment) shall be permanently reduced on each date 
set forth below (provided that if any date set forth below is not a Business 
Day then the permanent reduction shall occur on the first Business Day 
immediately succeeding such date set forth below) (each a "Scheduled A 
Commitment Reduction Date"), in the amount set forth below opposite such date 
(each such reduction, as such reduction may have been reduced pursuant to 
Sections 3.02 and/or 3.03(f), a "Scheduled A Commitment Reduction"):

            (d) In addition to any other mandatory commitment reductions
pursuant to this Section 3.03, the Total Term Loan Commitment (and the Term Loan
Commitment of each Bank with such a Commitment) shall terminate on the Initial
Borrowing Date (after giving effect to the making of the Term Loans on such
date).

                                      -26-

            (e) The Total Revolving Loan Commitment (and the Revolving Loan
Commitment of each Bank) shall terminate in its entirety on the earlier of (i)
the date which is the earlier of (x) 30 days after any date on which a Specified
Change of Control Event occurs and (y) the date on which any Senior Notes or any
other Indebtedness of the Company or its Restricted Subsidiaries are required to
be repurchased, redeemed or prepaid as a result of any such Specified Change of
Control Event and (ii) the Final Maturity Date.

            (f) With respect to any Asset Sale, (i) on the earliest of (x) 
the date occurring one year after the consummation of such Asset Sale, (y) 
the date, if any, following the date of consummation of such Asset Sale upon 
which the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Required Banks, shall have 
delivered a written reinvestment termination notice to the Company, provided 
that such notice may only be given while an Event of Default exists, and (z) 
the date the Company or any of its Subsidiaries shall be required to make an 
offer to purchase Senior Notes or any other Indebtedness of the Company or 
its Restricted Subsidiaries (other than Indebtedness specifically relating to 
the assets sold in such Asset Sale) with the proceeds received in connection 
with such Asset Sale, and (ii) on any date after the earliest of the dates 
referred to in clause (i) above of receipt by the Company or any of its 
Restricted Subsidiaries of additional Net Cash Proceeds from such Asset Sale, 
in each case, the Total Revolving Loan Commitment shall be reduced and the 
aggregate principal amount of Term Loans shall be repaid in an aggregate 
amount equal to 100% of the then Remaining Net Cash Proceeds from such Asset 
Sale (with the Tranche A Facility Percentage of such Remaining Net Cash 
Proceeds to be applied to reduce the Total Tranche A Revolving Loan 
Commitment, the Tranche B Facility Percentage to be applied to reduce the 
Total Tranche B Revolving Loan Commitment and the Term Loan Facility 
Percentage to be applied as a repayment of the aggregate principal amount of 
Term Loans). Each reduction to the Total Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment 
pursuant to this Section 3.03(f) shall reduce each of the remaining Scheduled 
A Commitment Reductions on a pro rata basis (based upon the then remaining 
amount of each such Scheduled A Commitment Reduction), and each reduction to 
the Total Tranche B Revolving Loan Commitment pursuant to this Section 
3.03(f) shall reduce each of the remaining Scheduled B Commitment Reductions 
on a pro rata basis (based upon the then remaining amount of each such 
Scheduled B Commitment Reduction).

            (g) Each reduction to the Total Term Loan Commitment, the Total
Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment and the Total Tranche B Revolving Loan
Commitment pursuant to this Section 3.03 shall be applied proportionately to
reduce the Term Loan Commitment, the Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitment or the
Tranche

Commitment.

            SECTION 4.  Payments.

            4.01 Voluntary Prepayments. Each Borrower shall have the right to
prepay the Loans incurred by it (and the Company on behalf of the Canadian
Borrower may, at its option, prepay the Canadian Dollar Loans incurred by the
Canadian Borrower), in whole or in part, without premium or penalty except as
otherwise provided in this Agreement, from time to time on the following terms
and conditions: (i) the Company or, in the case of any prepayment of Canadian
Dollar Loans, the Company or the Canadian Borrower, shall give the
Administrative Agent at the Notice Office written notice (or telephonic notice
promptly confirmed in writing) of its intent to prepay the Loans, whether such
Loans are Term Loans, Tranche A Revolving Loans, Tranche B Revolving Loans,
Swingline Loans or Canadian Dollar Loans, the amount of such prepayment and (in
the case of Eurodollar Loans) the specific Borrowing(s) pursuant to which made,
which notice shall be given by the Company or the Canadian Borrower, as the case
may be, prior to 12:00 Noon (New York time) (x) at least two Business Days prior
to the date of such prepayment in the case of Term Loans, Revolving Loans or
Canadian Dollar Loans, or (y) on the date of such prepayment in the case of
Swingline Loans, which notice shall promptly be transmitted by the
Administrative Agent to each of the Banks (or to the Canadian Lender in the case
of Canadian Dollar Loans); (ii) (x) each partial prepayment of any Borrowing
(other than a Borrowing of Swingline Loans and Canadian Dollar Loans) shall be
in an aggregate principal amount of at least $1,000,000 and, if greater, in an
integral multiple of $500,000, (y) each partial prepayment of any Borrowing of
Swingline Loans shall be in an aggregate principal amount of at least $250,000
and, if greater, in an integral multiple of $50,000 and (z) each partial
prepayment of any Borrowing of Canadian Dollar Loans shall be in an aggregate
principal amount of at least Can. $50,000 and, if greater, in an integral
multiple of Can. $50,000, provided that no partial prepayment of Eurodollar
Loans made pursuant to a Borrowing shall reduce the aggregate principal amount
of the Loans outstanding pursuant to such Borrowing to an amount less than the
Minimum Borrowing Amount applicable thereto; (iii) each prepayment of Term Loans
pursuant to this Section 4.01 shall reduce the then remaining Scheduled TL
Repayments on a pro rata basis (based upon the then remaining principal amount
of each such Scheduled TL Repayment); and (iv) each prepayment in respect of any
Loans made pursuant to a Borrowing shall be applied pro rata among such Loans;
provided that at the Company's 

                                      -28-

election in connection with any prepayment of Revolving Loans pursuant to 
this Section 4.01, such prepayment shall not be applied to any Revolving 
Loans of a Defaulting Bank.

            4.02 Mandatory Repayments. (a) (i) If on any date the sum of (x) the
aggregate outstanding principal amount of Tranche A Revolving Loans made by
Non-Defaulting Banks and Swingline Loans and the Dollar Equivalent of the
aggregate outstanding principal amount of Canadian Dollar Loans (in each case
after giving effect to all other repayments thereof on such date), plus (y) the
Letter of Credit Outstandings on such date exceeds the Adjusted Total Tranche A
Commitment as then in effect, the Company shall repay on such date the principal
of Swingline Loans, and if no Swingline Loans are or remain outstanding, Tranche
A Revolving Loans of Non-Defaulting Banks in an aggregate amount equal to such
excess, and if no Tranche A Revolving Loans of Non-Defaulting Banks are or
remain outstanding thereafter, the Canadian Borrower shall (or, at its option,
the Company, on behalf of the Canadian Borrower, shall) repay on such date the
principal of Canadian Dollar Loans, in an aggregate amount equal to such excess.
If, after giving effect to the repayment of all outstanding Swingline Loans,
Tranche A Revolving Loans and Canadian Dollar Loans, the aggregate amount of
Letter of Credit Outstandings exceeds the Adjusted Total Tranche A Commitment
then in effect, the Company agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent an amount
in cash and/or Cash Equivalents equal to such excess (up to the aggregate amount
of Letter of Credit Outstandings) and the Administrative Agent shall hold such
payment as security for the obligations of the Company hereunder pursuant to a
cash collateral agreement to be entered into in form and substance satisfactory
to the Administrative Agent (which shall permit certain investments in Cash
Equivalents satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, until the proceeds are
applied to the secured obligations).

            (ii) If on any date the aggregate outstanding principal amount of
Tranche A Revolving Loans made by any Defaulting Bank exceeds the Tranche A
Revolving Loan Commitment of such Defaulting Bank, the Company shall repay the
Tranche A Revolving Loans of such Defaulting Bank in an amount equal to such
excess.

            (iii) If on any date the aggregate outstanding principal amount of
Tranche B Revolving Loans made by any Bank exceeds the Tranche B Revolving Loan
Commitment of such Bank, the Company shall repay the Tranche B Revolving Loans
of such Bank in an amount equal to such excess.

            (b) If on any date the Dollar Equivalent of the aggregate
outstanding principal amount of Canadian Dollar Loans (after giving effect to
all other repayments thereof on such date) exceeds the Maximum Canadian Dollar
Amount as then in effect, 

                                      -29-

the Canadian Borrower shall repay on such date the principal of Canadian 
Dollar Loans in an amount such that after giving effect to such repayment the 
Dollar Equivalent of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the 
Canadian Dollar Loans is equal to or less than the Maximum Canadian Dollar 
Amount.

            (c) In addition to any other mandatory repayments pursuant to this
Section 4.02, the Company shall repay, on each date set forth below (provided
that if any date set forth below is not a Business Day then the repayment shall
occur on the first Business Day immediately succeeding such date set forth
below) (each a "Scheduled TL Repayment Date"), the Term Loans in an amount equal
to the amount set forth below opposite such date (each such repayment, as the
same may be reduced as provided in Sections 4.01, and 4.02(e), a "Scheduled TL
Repayment"):

      Scheduled TL Repayment Date               Amount

      June 30, 2000                             $25,000,000
      December 31, 2000                          25,000,000

      June 30, 2004                              50,000,000

            (d) In the event that a Specified Change of Control Event occurs,
the Company shall repay all outstanding Term Loans in their entirety on the date
which is the earlier of (i) 30 days after any date on which such Specified
Change of Control Event occurs and (ii) the date on which any Senior Notes or
any other Indebtedness of the Company or its Restricted Subsidiaries are
required to be repurchased, redeemed or prepaid as a result of any such
Specified Change of Control Event.

            (e) The aggregate principal amount of Term Loans shall be repaid at
the times, and in the amounts, provided in Section 3.03(f). The amount of each
principal repayment of Term Loans pursuant to this Section 4.02(e) shall be
applied to reduce each of the remaining Scheduled TL Repayments on a pro rata
basis (based upon the then remaining amount of each such Scheduled TL
Repayment).

                                      -30-

            (f) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this
Agreement, (i) all then outstanding Loans under this Agreement shall be repaid
in full on the Final Maturity Date and (ii) all then outstanding Swingline Loans
shall be repaid in full on the Swingline Expiry Date.

            (g) With respect to each repayment of Loans required by this Section
4.02, the Company (or, in the case of Canadian Dollar Loans, the Canadian
Borrower or the Company on behalf of the Canadian Borrower) may designate the
Types of Loans which are to be repaid and the specific Borrowing(s) pursuant to
which made; provided that (i) Eurodollar Loans may be designated for repayment
pursuant to this Section 4.02 only on the last day of an Interest Period
applicable thereto unless all Eurodollar Loans under the respective Tranche with
Interest Periods ending on such date of required repayment and all Base Rate
Loans under the respective Tranche have been paid in full; (ii) each repayment
of any Loans made pursuant to a Borrowing shall be applied pro rata among such
Loans; (iii) notwithstanding the provisions of the preceding clause (ii), no
repayment of Tranche A Revolving Loans pursuant to Section 4.02(a)(i) shall be
applied to the Tranche A Revolving Loans of a Defaulting Bank; and (iv)
repayments of Tranche A Revolving Loans of Defaulting Banks pursuant to Section
4.02(a)(ii) shall be applied pro rata among such Tranche A Revolving Loans. In
the absence of a designation by a Borrower as described in the preceding
sentence, the Administrative Agent shall, subject to the above, make such
designation in its sole discretion with a view, but no obligation, to minimize
breakage costs owing under Section 1.11. Notwithstanding the foregoing
provisions of this Section 4.02, if at any time the mandatory repayment of Loans
pursuant to Section 4.02(a) or (b) arising solely as a result of a reduction to
the Total Revolving Loan Commitment pursuant to Section 3.03(f) would result,
after giving effect to the procedures set forth above in this clause (g), in the
Company (or, in the case of Canadian Dollar Loans, the Canadian Borrower)
incurring breakage costs under Section 1.11 as a result of Eurodollar Loans
being repaid other than on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto
(the "Affected Eurodollar Loans"), then the Company (or, in the case of Canadian
Dollar Loans, the Canadian Borrower or the Company on behalf of the Canadian
Borrower) may in its sole discretion initially deposit a portion (up to 100%) of
the amounts that otherwise would have been paid in respect of the Affected
Eurodollar Loans with the Administrative Agent to be held as security for the
obligations of the respective Borrower hereunder pursuant to a cash collateral
agreement to be entered into in form and substance satisfactory to the
Administrative Agent, with such cash collateral to be released from such cash
collateral account upon the first occurrence (or occurrences) thereafter of the
last day of an Interest Period applicable to the relevant Loans that are
Eurodollar Loans (or such earlier date or dates as shall be requested by 

                                      -31-

the
respective Borrower), to repay an aggregate principal amount of such Loans equal
to the Affected Eurodollar Loans not initially repaid pursuant to this sentence.

            4.03 Method and Place of Payment. Except as otherwise specifically
provided herein, all payments under this Agreement shall be made to the
Administrative Agent for the ratable account of the Banks entitled thereto
(based on each Bank's Pro Rata Share, if any), no later than 1:00 P.M. (New York
time) on the date when due and shall be made in immediately available funds and
in lawful money of the United States of America (or Canadian Dollars in the case
of Canadian Dollar Loans which have been assigned to the other Banks by the
Canadian Lender pursuant to Section 1.01(g)) at the Payment Office, provided
that payments in respect of Canadian Dollar Loans owing to the Canadian Lender
shall be made to the Canadian Lender no later than 1:00 P.M. (New York time) on
the date when due and shall be made in immediately available funds and in lawful
money of Canada at the Canadian Payment Office. Notwithstanding anything to the
contrary contained herein, any amounts owing or payments required to be made by
the Canadian Borrower hereunder, including, without limitation, pursuant to
Section 1.10, 1.11, 4.04 or 12.01, may, at the option of the Company, be paid by
the Company on behalf of the Canadian Borrower. Any payments under this
Agreement which are made later than 1:00 P.M. (New York time) shall be deemed to
have been made on the next succeeding Business Day; provided, however, that to
the extent that the Administrative Agent shall have received any payment under
this Agreement after 1:00 P.M. (New York time) on a Business Day, the
Administrative Agent shall use its best efforts to distribute such payment as
promptly as practicable on such date to the Banks (other than any Bank that has
consented in writing to waive its pro rata share of such payment) pro rata based
upon their respective shares, if any, of the Obligations with respect to which
such payment was received, and to the extent that any such Bank receives its
portion of such payment from the Administrative Agent on such same date by a
time satisfactory to such Bank, such payment to such Bank shall be deemed to
have been made on such date. Whenever any payment to be made hereunder shall be
stated to be due on a day which is not a Business Day, the due date thereof
shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day and, with respect to
payments of principal, interest shall be payable during such extension at the
applicable rate in effect immediately prior to such extension.

            4.04 Net Payments. All payments made by each Borrower hereunder 
will be made without setoff, counterclaim or other defense. Promptly upon 
notice from any Bank to the respective Borrower, the Company (or, in the case 
of Canadian Dollar Loans, each of the Company and the Canadian Borrower) 
agrees to pay, prior to the date on which penalties attach thereto, all 
present and future income, stamp and other taxes, 

                                      -32-

levies, or costs and charges whatsoever imposed, assessed, levied or 
collected on or in respect of any Canadian Dollar Loan of any Type, or in 
respect of a Loan solely as a result of the interest rate being determined by 
reference to the Eurodollar Rate, and/or the provisions of this Agreement 
relating to the Eurodollar Rate, and/or the recording, registration, 
notarization or other formalization of any thereof and/or any payments of 
principal, interest or other amounts made on or in respect of a Canadian 
Dollar Loan of any Type, or a Loan when the interest rate is determined by 
reference to the Eurodollar Rate (all such taxes, levies, costs and charges 
being herein collectively called "Taxes"); provided that Taxes shall not 
include (x) taxes imposed on or measured by the overall net income or 
receipts of the Administrative Agent or any Bank by the United States of 
America or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein 
or (y) taxes on or measured by the overall net income of any foreign office, 
branch or subsidiary of the Administrative Agent or that Bank by any foreign 
country or subdivision thereof in which the Administrative Agent's or that 
Bank's office, branch or subsidiary is doing business. Each Borrower agrees 
to also pay such additional amounts equal to increases in taxes payable by 
that Bank described in the foregoing proviso which increases arise solely 
from the receipt by that Bank of payments made by such Borrower described in 
the immediately preceding sentence of this Section 4.04. Promptly after the 
date on which payment of any such Tax is due pursuant to applicable law, the 
respective Borrower will, at the request of that Bank, furnish to that Bank 
evidence, in form and substance satisfactory to that Bank, that the 
respective Borrower has met its obligation under this Section 4.04. Each 
Borrower agrees to indemnify each Bank against, and reimburse each Bank on 
demand for, any Taxes, as reasonably determined by that Bank in its good 
faith. Such Bank shall provide the respective Borrower with appropriate 
receipts for any payments or reimbursements made by such Borrower pursuant to 
this Section 4.04. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Borrower shall be 
entitled, to the extent it is required to do so by law, to deduct or withhold 
and pay to the appropriate taxing authority within the time prescribed by 
applicable law (and shall not be required to make payments as otherwise 
required in this Section on account of such deductions or withholdings) 
income or other similar taxes imposed by the United States of America from 
interest, fees or other amounts payable hereunder for the account of the 
Administrative Agent or any Bank other than the Administrative Agent or any 
Bank (i) who is a U.S. Person for Federal income tax purposes or (ii) who has 
the Prescribed Forms on file with the Company for the applicable year to the 
extent deduction or withholding of such taxes is not required as a result of 
the filing of such Prescribed Forms, provided that if a Borrower shall so 
deduct or withhold any such taxes, it shall provide a statement to the 
Administrative Agent and such Bank, setting forth the amount of such taxes so 
deducted or withheld, the applicable rate and any other information or 
documentation which the Administrative Agent or such Bank may reasonably 
request for 

                                      -33-

assisting the Administrative Agent or such Bank to obtain any allowable 
credits or deductions for the taxes so deducted or withheld in the 
jurisdiction or jurisdictions in which the Administrative Agent or such Bank 
is subject to tax. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, 
the Company shall compensate each Bank for all losses, expenses, liabilities, 
taxes (including, without limitation, Taxes) or other costs which any such 
Bank may incur or sustain as a result of the Company paying any obligations 
of the Canadian Borrower hereunder or under any other Credit Document, which 
such Bank would not otherwise incur or sustain if the Canadian Borrower had 
made any such payments instead of the Company paying such amounts on behalf 
of the Canadian Borrower.

            SECTION 5. Conditions Precedent. The obligation of each Bank to make
each Loan to the respective Borrower hereunder (including, without limitation,
the obligation of the Canadian Lender to make each Canadian Dollar Loan
hereunder), and the obligation of the Letter of Credit Issuer to issue each
Letter of Credit hereunder, are subject, at the time of each such Credit Event
(except as otherwise hereinafter indicated), to the satisfaction of the
following conditions:

            5.01 Execution of Agreement. On or prior to the Initial Borrowing
Date, this Agreement shall have been executed and delivered in accordance with
Section 12.10.

            5.02 No Default; Representations and Warranties. At the time of each
Credit Event and also after giving effect thereto (i) there shall exist no
Default or Event of Default and (ii) all representations and warranties
contained herein or in the other Credit Documents in effect at such time shall
be true and correct in all material respects with the same effect as though such
representations and warranties had been made on and as of the date of such
Credit Event, unless stated to relate to a specific earlier date, in which case
such representations and warranties shall be true and correct in all material
respects as of such earlier date.

            5.03 Opinions of Counsel. On the Initial Borrowing Date, the
Administrative Agent shall have received opinions, addressed to each of the
Banks and dated the Initial Borrowing Date, (i) from Simpson, Thacher &
Bartlett, special counsel to the Credit Parties, which opinion shall cover the
matters contained in Exhibit C-1 and such other matters incident to the
transactions contemplated herein as the Administrative Agent may reasonably
request, (ii) from Beverly C. Chell, Esq., counsel to the Credit Parties, which
opinion shall cover the matters contained in Exhibit C-2 and such other 

                                      -34-

matters incident to the transactions contemplated herein as the 
Administrative Agent may reasonably request, (iii) from Aird & Berlis, 
special Canadian counsel to the Canadian Borrower, which opinion shall cover 
the matters contained in Exhibit C-3 and (iv) from White & Case, special 
counsel to the Administrative Agent, which opinion shall cover the matters 
contained in Exhibit C-4.

            5.04 Corporate Proceedings. (a) On the Initial Borrowing Date, the
Administrative Agent shall have received from each of the Company, the Canadian
Borrower and each Subsidiary Guarantor, a certificate, dated the Initial
Borrowing Date, signed by the chairman, a vice chairman, the president, any
vice-president or the treasurer of such Person, and attested to by the secretary
or any assistant secretary of such Person, in the form of Exhibit D with
appropriate insertions and, to the extent required, together with copies of the

            SECTION 6. Representations, Warranties and Agreements. In order 
to induce the Banks to enter into this Agreement and to make the Loans and 
issue and/or participate in the Letters of Credit provided for herein, the 
Company makes the following representations and warranties to, and agreements 
with, the Banks, all of which shall survive the execution and delivery of 
this Agreement, the making of the Loans and the issuance of the Letters of 
Credit (with the occurrence of each Credit Event on and after the Initial 
Borrowing Date being deemed to constitute a representation and warranty that 
the matters specified in this Section 6 are true and correct in all material 
respects on and as of the Initial Borrowing Date and as of the date of each 
such Credit Event, unless stated to relate to a specific earlier date):

            6.01 Corporate Status. The Company and each of its Restricted

the condition (financial or otherwise), operations, assets, liabilities or
prospects of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries taken as a whole.

            6.02 Corporate Power and Authority. Each of the Company and each of
its Restricted Subsidiaries has the corporate power and authority to execute,
deliver and carry out the terms and provisions of the Credit Documents to which
it is a party and has taken all necessary corporate action to authorize the
execution, delivery and performance of the Credit Documents to which it is a
party. Each of the Company and each of its Restricted Subsidiaries has duly
executed and delivered each Credit Document to which it is a party and each such
Credit Document constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of such
Person enforceable in accordance with its terms, except to the extent that the
enforceability thereof may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency,
reorganization, moratorium or similar laws generally affecting creditors' 

                                      -37-

rights and by equitable principles (regardless of whether enforcement is 
sought in equity or at law).

            6.03 No Violation. Neither the execution, delivery or performance 
by the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries of the Credit Documents 
to which it is a party nor compliance by them with the terms and provisions 
thereof, nor the consummation of the transactions contemplated therein (i) 
will contravene in any material respect any applicable provision of any law, 
statute, rule or regulation, or any order, writ, injunction or decree of any 
court or governmental instrumentality, (ii) will conflict or be inconsistent 
with or result in any breach of, any of the terms, covenants, conditions or 
provisions of, or constitute a default under, or result in the creation or 
imposition of (or the obligation to create or impose) any Lien upon any of 
the property or assets of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries pursuant to 
the terms of any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, credit agreement, loan 
agreement or other material agreement or instrument to which the Company or 
any of its Subsidiaries is a party or by which any of them or any of their 
respective property or assets is bound or to which it may be subject or (iii) 
will violate any provision of the Certificate of Incorporation or ByLaws of 
the Company or any of its Subsidiaries.

            6.04 Litigation. There are no actions, suits or proceedings pending,
or, to the best knowledge of the Company, threatened, with respect to the
Company or any of its Subsidiaries (i) that are likely to have a material
adverse effect on the condition (financial or otherwise), operations, assets,
liabilities or prospects of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries taken as
a whole or (ii) that could reasonably be expected to have a material adverse
effect on the rights or remedies of the Banks, the Letter of Credit Issuer or
the Administrative Agent or on the ability of the Company or of the Subsidiary
Guarantors, taken as a whole, in either case, to perform its or their respective
obligations hereunder and under the other Credit Documents to which it is or
they are, or will be, a party.

            6.05 Use of Proceeds; Margin Regulations. (a) The proceeds of all

Initial Borrowing Date under the Existing Credit Agreements, and (ii) to pay
certain fees and expenses arising in connection with such refinancing.

            (b) The proceeds of all Revolving Loans, Swingline Loans and
Canadian Dollar Loans shall be used for the purposes referred to in Section

the Company and its Subsid-

                                      -38-

iaries (including, without limitation, to finance Permitted Acquisitions and 
refinance Senior Notes).

            (c) Neither the making of any Loan hereunder, nor the use of the
proceeds thereof, will violate the provisions of Regulation G, T, U or X of the
Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and no part of the proceeds of
any Loan will be used to purchase or carry any Margin Stock or to extend credit
for the purpose of purchasing or carrying any Margin Stock, provided that the
Company may use the proceeds of Loans to purchase Margin Stock in compliance
with Regulations G, T, U and X, so long as at the time of the making of such
Loan, and after giving effect thereto, not more than 25% of the value of the
assets subject to the provisions of Section 8 of the Company, or of the Company
and its Restricted Subsidiaries on a consolidated basis, shall constitute Margin
Stock.

            6.06 Governmental Approvals. No order, consent, approval, 
license, authorization, or validation of, or filing, recording or 
registration with, or exemption by, any foreign or domestic governmental or 
public body or authority, or any subdivision thereof, is required to 
authorize or is required in connection with (i) the execution, delivery and 
performance of any Credit Document or (ii) the legality, validity, binding 
effect or enforceability of any Credit Document, except those which have been 
obtained or made or those the absence of which, individually or in the 
aggregate, could not reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect 
on either (x) the condition (financial or otherwise), operations, assets, 
liabilities or prospects of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries taken 
as a whole or (y) the rights or remedies of the Banks, the Letter of Credit 
Issuer or the Administrative Agent or on the ability of the Company or of the 
Subsidiary Guarantors, taken as a whole, in either case, to perform its or 
their respective obligations hereunder and under the other Credit Documents 
to which it is or they are, or will be, a party.

            6.07 Investment Company Act. Neither the Company nor any of its

            6.09 True and Complete Disclosure. (a) All factual information
(taken as a whole) heretofore or contemporaneously furnished by the Company or
any of its Subsidiaries in writing to the Administrative Agent and/or any Bank
on or before the Initial Borrowing Date (including, without limitation, (i) the
Information Memorandum and (ii) all information contained in the Credit
Documents) for purposes of or in connection with this Agreement or any
transaction contemplated herein is true and complete in all material respects on
the date as of which such information is dated or certified and not incomplete
by omitting to state any material fact necessary to make such information (taken
as a whole) not misleading at such time in light of the circumstances under
which such information was provided, it being understood and agreed that for
purposes of this Section 6.09(a), such factual information shall not include
projections and pro forma financial information.

            (b) The projections and pro forma financial information contained in
the factual information referred to in paragraph (a) above were based on good
faith estimates and assumptions believed by such Persons to be reasonable at the
time made, it being recognized by the Banks that such projections as to future
events are not to be viewed as facts and that actual results during the period
or periods covered by any such projections may differ from the projected
results.
            6.10 Financial Statements; Financial Condition. (a) The consolidated
balance sheets of the Company and its Subsidiaries as at December 31, 1995 and
March 31, 1996 and the related consolidated statements of income and cash flows
of the Company and its Subsidiaries for the fiscal year or three-month period,
as the case may be, ended as of said dates, which, in the case of the December
31, 1995 statements, have been examined by Deloitte & Touche, independent
certified public accountants, who delivered an unqualified opinion in respect
thereof, present fairly the financial position of the Company and its
Subsidiaries at the dates of said statements and the results for the period
covered thereby. All such financial statements have been prepared in accordance
with GAAP consistently applied except to the extent provided in the notes to
said financial statements (subject, in the case of the March 31, 1996
statements, to normal year-end audit adjustments).

            (b) Since December 31, 1995 and after giving effect to the
incurrence of Indebtedness hereunder and the other transactions contemplated
hereby, there has been no material adverse change in the condition (financial or
otherwise), operations, assets, liabilities or prospects of the Company and its
Restricted Subsidiaries taken as a whole (other than any change in general
economic conditions or any change in conditions affecting the Business
generally).

                                      -40-

            6.11 Tax Returns and Payments. Each of the Company and each of its
Restricted Subsidiaries has filed all Federal income tax returns and all other
material tax returns, domestic and foreign, required to be filed by it and has
paid all Federal taxes and assessments shown to be due on such returns and all
other material taxes and assessments, domestic and foreign, in each case payable
by it which have become due, other than those not yet delinquent and except for
those contested in good faith and for which adequate reserves have been provided
in accordance with GAAP.

            6.12 Compliance with ERISA. As of the Initial Borrowing Date, 
there are no Plans and neither the Company nor any of its Restricted 
Subsidiaries nor any ERISA Affiliate has incurred any unpaid material 
liability or reasonably expects to incur any material liability with respect 
to any "employee pension benefit plan" (as defined in Section 3(2) of ERISA) 
covered by Title IV of ERISA. As of the date of each subsequent Credit Event, 
each Plan is in substantial compliance with ERISA and the Code; no Reportable 
Event has occurred with respect to a Plan; no Plan is insolvent or in 
reorganization; no Plan has an accumulated or waived funding deficiency, has 
permitted decreases in its funding standard account or has applied for an 
extension of any amortization period within the meaning of Section 412 of the 
Code; neither the Company nor any of its Restricted Subsidiaries nor any 
ERISA Affiliate has incurred or reasonably expects to incur any liability to 
or on account of a Plan pursuant to ERISA or the Code; no proceedings have 
been instituted by the PBGC to terminate any Plan; no condition exists which 
presents a material risk to the Company, any of its Restricted Subsidiaries 
or any ERISA Affiliate of incurring a liability to or on account of a Plan 
pursuant to ERISA or the Code; no lien imposed under the Code or ERISA on the 
assets of the Company, any of its Restricted Subsidiaries or any ERISA 
Affiliate exists or is likely to arise on account of any Plan; and the 
Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries do not maintain or contribute to any 
"employee welfare benefit plan" (as defined in Section 3(1) of ERISA), which 
provides benefits to retired employees (other than as required by Section 601 
of ERISA) where, with respect to any of the foregoing representations in this 
Section 6.12, the liability for or the lien which could arise as a result of, 
the particular circumstance or event which is the subject of the 
representation, would be reasonably likely to result in a material adverse 
effect on the condition (financial or otherwise), operations, assets, 
liabilities or prospects of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries taken 
as a whole. Using actuarial assumptions and computation methods consistent 
with subpart 1 of subtitle E of Title IV of ERISA, the aggregate liabilities 
of the Company, its Restricted Subsidiaries and ERISA Affiliates to all Plans 
which are "multiemployer plans" (as defined in Section 4001(a)(3) of ERISA) 
(each a "Multiemployer Plan") in the event of a complete withdrawal 
therefrom, as of the close of the most recent fiscal year of each such Plan 
would not be reasonably likely to be an amount that could result in a 

                                      -41-

material adverse effect on the condition (financial or otherwise), 
operations, assets, liabilities or prospects of the Company and its 
Restricted Subsidiaries taken as a whole. Notwithstanding anything in this 
Section 6.12 to the contrary, all representations and warranties made with 
respect to any Plan which is a Multiemployer Plan shall be made to the best 
knowledge of the Company.

            6.13 Subsidiaries. On the Initial Borrowing Date, the corporations
listed on Annex IV under the name of the Company are the only Subsidiaries of
the Company. Annex IV correctly sets forth, as of the Initial Borrowing Date,
the percentage ownership (direct and indirect) of the Company in each class of
capital stock of each of its Subsidiaries and also identifies the direct owner
thereof.

            6.14 Intellectual Property. (a) The Company and each of its
Restricted Subsidiaries owns, or is licensed or otherwise authorized to sell,
distribute, use or exploit, all material copyrights, literary works, texts and
other works of authorship fixed in any tangible medium of expression necessary
for the present conduct of its business ("Copyrights"), except to the extent
that the failure to own or obtain licenses or authorizations with respect to any
of the foregoing, individually or in the aggregate, would not have a material
adverse effect on the condition (financial or otherwise), operations, assets,
liabilities or prospects of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries taken as
a whole.

            (b) The Company and each of its Restricted Subsidiaries owns or is
licensed to use all the patents, trademarks, permits, service marks, trade
names, technology, know-how and formulas, or rights with respect to the
foregoing, necessary for the present conduct of its business, except to the
extent that the failure to own or obtain licenses with respect to any of the
foregoing, individually or in the aggregate, would not have a material adverse
effect on the condition (financial or otherwise), operations, assets,
liabilities or prospects of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries taken as
a whole (together with the Copyrights, "Intellectual Property").

            (c) All Intellectual Property is protected in all material respects
under the laws of the United States relating to such Intellectual Property and
has been duly and properly registered or filed with or issued by the appropriate
governmental offices and jurisdictions for such registrations, filings or
issuances, except to the extent that the failure to make or obtain such
registrations, filings or issuances would not have a material adverse effect on
the condition (financial or otherwise), operations, assets, liabilities or
prospects of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries taken as a whole.

                                      -42-

            (d) No material claim has been asserted by any Person challenging or
questioning the use of any such Intellectual Property or the validity or
effectiveness of any such Intellectual Property. The use of such Intellectual
Property by the Company or its Restricted Subsidiaries does not infringe on the
rights of any Person, except for such claims and infringements as do not,
individually or in the aggregate, give rise to any liabilities on the part of
the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries that are material to the Company and
its Restricted Subsidiaries taken as a whole.

            6.15 Compliance with Statutes, etc. The Company and each of its
Restricted Subsidiaries is in compliance with all applicable statutes,
regulations and orders of, and all applicable restrictions imposed by, all
governmental bodies, domestic or foreign, in respect of the conduct of its
business and the ownership of its property (including compliance with all
applicable Environmental Laws with respect to any Real Property and the
requirements of any permits issued under such Environmental Laws with respect to
any such Real Property or the operations of the Company or any of its
Subsidiaries), except such noncompliances as would not, in the aggregate, have a
material adverse effect on the condition (financial or otherwise), operations,
assets, liabilities or prospects of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries
taken as a whole.

            SECTION 7. Affirmative Covenants. The Company hereby covenants 
and agrees that on the Effective Date and thereafter for so long as this 
Agreement is in effect and until the Commitments have terminated, no Letters

      and of cash flows for such fiscal year, setting forth for such fiscal
      year, in comparative form, the corresponding figures for the preceding
      fiscal year and, in the case of the figures with respect to the Company
      and its Restricted Subsidiaries the corresponding figures from the budget
      for such fiscal year delivered pursuant to Section 7.01(c); all of which
      shall be examined by Deloitte & Touche or such other independent certified
      public accountants of recognized national standing as shall be acceptable

                                      -43-

      to the Administrative Agent, whose opinion shall not be qualified as to

      generally accepted auditing standards, no Default or Event of Default
      which has occurred and is continuing has come to its attention or, if such
      a Default or Event of Default has come to its attention a statement as to

      elapsed portion of the fiscal year ended with the last day of such
      quarterly period; all of which shall be in reasonable detail and certified
      by the chief financial officer or other Authorized Officer of the Company
      that they fairly present the financial condition of the Company and its

adverse effect on the condition (financial or otherwise), operations, assets,
liabilities or prospects of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries taken as
a whole; provided, however, that any transaction permitted by Section 8.02 will
not constitute a breach of this Section 7.04.

governmental bodies, domestic or foreign, in respect of the conduct of its

Restricted Subsidiary is sold, transferred or disposed of in a transaction
permitted by Section 8.02(c) or (j) or any such Restricted Subsidiary is merged,
consolidated or liquidated in a transaction permitted by Section 8.02(e),
provided that the Company shall not be required to own a majority of the capital
stock of the Canadian Borrower so long as the Company continues to hold at least

will cause each of its Subsidiaries to, satisfy customary corporate formalities,
including the holding of regular board of directors' and shareholders' meetings
and the maintenance of corporate offices and records. Neither the Company nor
any Restricted Subsidiary shall make any payment to a creditor of any
Unrestricted Subsidiary in respect of any liability of such Unrestricted
Subsidiary, and no bank account of an Unrestricted Subsidiary shall be

or conduct its affairs in a manner, which is likely to result in the corporate
existence of any Unrestricted Subsidiary which is a direct Subsidiary of the
Company or any Restricted Subsidiary being ignored by any court of competent
jurisdiction, or in the assets and liabilities of the Company or any Restricted
Subsidiary being substantively consolidated with those of any Unrestricted
Subsidiary in a bankruptcy, reorganization or other insolvency proceeding.

delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms of this Agreement and the
other Credit Documents, together with such other powers as are reasonably
incidental thereto. The Administrative Agent agrees to act as such upon the
express conditions contained in this Section 11. Notwithstanding any provision
to the contrary elsewhere in this Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall not
have any duties or responsibilities, except those expressly set forth herein or
in the other Credit Documents, 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
Administrative Agent. The provisions of this Section 11 are solely for the
benefit of the Administrative Agent and the Banks, and neither the Company nor
any of its Subsidiaries shall have any rights as a third party 

                                     -110-

beneficiary of any of the provisions hereof. In performing its functions and 
duties under this Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall act solely as 
agent of the Banks and the Administrative Agent neither assumes and nor shall 
it be deemed to have assumed any obligation or relationship of agency or 
trust with or for the Company or any of its Subsidiaries.

            11.02 Delegation of Duties. The Administrative Agent may execute any
of its duties under this Agreement or any other Credit Document by or through
agents or attorneys-in-fact and shall be entitled to advice of counsel
concerning all matters pertaining to such duties. The Administrative Agent shall
not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any agents or
attorneys-in-fact selected by it with reasonable care except to the extent
otherwise required by Section 11.03.

            11.03 Exculpatory Provisions. Neither the Administrative Agent nor
any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or
affiliates shall be (i) liable for any action lawfully taken or omitted to be
taken by it or such Person under or in connection with this Agreement or the
other Credit Documents (except for its or such Person's own gross negligence or
willful misconduct) or (ii) responsible in any manner to any of the Banks for
any recitals, statements, representations or warranties made by the Company, any
of its Subsidiaries or any of their respective officers contained in this
Agreement or the other Credit Documents or in any certificate, report, statement
or other document referred to or provided for in, or received by the
Administrative Agent under or in connection with, this Agreement or any other
Credit Document or for any failure of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or
any of their respective officers to perform its obligations hereunder or
thereunder. The Administrative 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 the other
Credit Documents, or to inspect the properties, books or records of the Company
or any of its Subsidiaries. The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible to
any Bank for the effectiveness, genuineness, validity, enforceability,
collectibility or sufficiency of this Agreement or any other Credit Document or
for any representations, warranties, recitals or statements made herein or
therein or made in any written or oral statement or in any financial or other
statements, instruments, reports, certificates or any other documents in
connection herewith or therewith furnished or made by the Administrative Agent
to the Banks or by or on behalf of either Borrower to the Administrative Agent,
or any Bank or be required to ascertain or inquire as to the performance or
observance of any of the terms, conditions, provisions, covenants or agreements
contained herein or therein or as to the use of the proceeds of the Loans or of
the existence or possible existence of any Default or Event of Default.

                                     -111-

            11.04 Reliance by Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent 
shall be entitled to rely, and shall be fully protected in relying, upon any 
note, writing, resolution, notice, consent, certificate, affidavit, letter, 
cablegram, telegram, telecopy, 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 Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall be fully 
justified in failing or refusing to take any action under this Agreement or 
any other Credit Document unless it shall first receive such advice or 
concurrence of the Required 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 Administrative Agent shall in all cases be fully 
protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, under this Agreement and 
the other Credit Documents in accordance with a request of the Required 
Banks, and such request and any action taken or failure to act pursuant 
thereto shall be binding upon all the Banks.

            11.05 Notice of Default. The Administrative Agent shall not be
deemed to have knowledge or notice of the occurrence of any Default or Event of
Default hereunder unless the Administrative Agent has actually 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 Administrative Agent receives such a notice, the
Administrative Agent shall give prompt notice thereof to the Banks. The
Administrative Agent shall take such action with respect to such Default or
Event of Default as shall be reasonably directed by the Required Banks; provided
that, unless and until the Administrative Agent shall have received such
directions, the Administrative 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.

            11.06 Non-Reliance on Administrative Agent and Other Banks. Each
Bank expressly acknowledges that neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its
respective officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or
affiliates have made any representations or warranties to it and that no act by
the Administrative Agent hereinafter taken, including any review of the affairs
of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, shall be deemed to constitute any
representation or warranty by the Administrative Agent to any Bank. Each Bank
represents to the Administrative Agent that it has, independently and without
reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Bank, and based on such
documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, 

                                     -112-

made its own appraisal of and investigation into the business, assets, 
operations, property, financial and other condition, prospects and 
creditworthiness of the Company and its Subsidiaries 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 
Administrative Agent or any other Bank, 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, assets, operations, property, financial and 
other condition, prospects and creditworthiness of the Company and its 
Subsidiaries. The Administrative Agent shall not have any duty or 
responsibility to provide any Bank with any credit or other information 
concerning the business, operations, assets, property, financial and other 
condition, prospects or creditworthiness of the Company or any of its 
Subsidiaries which may come into the possession of the Administrative Agent 
or any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or 
affiliates.

            11.07 Indemnification. The Banks agree to indemnify the
Administrative Agent in its capacity as such ratably according to their
respective "percentages" (which shall equal, for each Non-Defaulting Bank, that
percentage determined by dividing (i) the sum of (x) such Bank's Tranche A
Revolving Loan Commitment, (y) such Bank's Tranche B Revolving Loan Commitment
and (z) the outstanding principal amount of such Bank's Term Loans by (ii) the
sum of (x) the Adjusted Total Tranche A Commitment, (y) the Total Tranche B
Revolving Loan Commitment less the Tranche B Revolving Loan Commitment of each
Defaulting Bank and (z) the total aggregate principal amount of Term Loans less
any outstanding Term Loans of Defaulting Banks, it being understood and agreed
that references herein to Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitments and Tranche B
Revolving Loan Commitments (as well as to the Adjusted Total Tranche A
Commitment and Total Tranche B Revolving Loan Commitment) at a time when any
such Commitment has been terminated shall be references to such terminated
Commitment as in effect immediately prior to such termination), from and against
any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions,
judgments, suits, costs, reasonable expenses or disbursements of any kind
whatsoever which may at any time (including, without limitation, at any time
following the payment of the Obligations) be imposed on, incurred by or asserted
against the Administrative Agent in its capacity as such in any way relating to
or arising out of this Agreement or any other Credit Document, or any documents
contemplated by or referred to herein or the transactions contemplated hereby or
any action taken or omitted to be taken by the Administrative Agent under or in
connection with any of the foregoing, but only to the extent that any of the
foregoing is not paid by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries; provided that
no 

                                     -113-

Bank shall be liable to the Administrative Agent for the payment of any 
portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, 
actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting solely 
from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Administrative Agent. 
If and to the extent any amount paid to the Administrative Agent is 
subsequently recovered by the Administrative Agent against the Company or any 
of its Subsidiaries, the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to each Bank 
to the extent such Bank paid the Administrative Agent, its "percentage" of 
the amount so recovered. If any indemnity furnished to the Administrative 
Agent for any purpose shall, in the opinion of the Administrative Agent be 
insufficient or become impaired, the Administrative Agent may call for 
additional indemnity and cease, or not commence, to do the acts indemnified 
against until such additional indemnity is furnished. The agreements in this 
Section 11.07 shall survive the payment of all Obligations.

            11.08 Administrative Agent in Its Individual Capacity. The
Administrative Agent and its respective affiliates may make loans to, accept
deposits from and generally engage in any kind of business with the Company and
its Subsidiaries as though the Administrative Agent were not the Administrative
Agent hereunder. With respect to the Loans made by it and all Obligations owing
to it, the Administrative 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
Administrative Agent, and the terms "Bank" and "Banks" shall include the
Administrative Agent in its individual capacity.

            11.09 Holders. The Administrative Agent may deem and treat the payee
of any Note which has been issued hereunder as the owner thereof for all
purposes hereof unless and until a written notice of the assignment, transfer or
endorsement thereof, as the case may be, shall have been filed with the
Administrative Agent. Any request, authority or consent of any Person or entity
who, at the time of making such request or giving such authority or consent, is
the holder of any such Note shall be conclusive and binding on any subsequent
holder, transferee, assignee or indorsee, as the case may be, of such Note or of
any Note or Notes issued in exchange therefor.

            11.10 Resignation of the Administrative Agent; Successor Agent. The
Administrative Agent may resign as the Administrative Agent upon 20 days' notice
to the Banks. Upon the resignation of the Administrative Agent, the Required
Banks shall appoint from among the Banks a successor Administrative Agent for
the Banks subject to prior approval by the Company (such approval not to be
unreasonably withheld), whereupon such successor agent shall succeed to the
rights, powers and duties of the Administrative Agent, and the term
"Administrative Agent" shall include such successor agent effective upon its
appointment, and the resigning Administrative Agent's rights, 

                                     -114-

powers and duties as the Administrative Agent shall be terminated, without 
any other or further act or deed on the part of such former Administrative 
Agent or any of the parties to this Agreement. After the resignation of the 
Administrative Agent hereunder, the provisions of this Section 11 shall inure 
to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it 
was Administrative Agent under this Agreement.

            SECTION 12. Miscellaneous.

            12.01 Payment of Expenses, etc. The Company agrees to: (i) whether
or not the transactions herein contemplated are consummated, pay all reasonable
out-of-pocket costs and expenses of the Administrative Agent (including, without
limitation, the reasonable fees and disbursements of White & Case) in connection
with the negotiation, preparation, execution and delivery of the Credit
Documents and the documents and instruments referred to therein and any
amendment, waiver or consent relating thereto and in connection with the
Administrative Agent's syndication efforts with respect to this Agreement; (ii)
pay all reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses of the Administrative Agent,
the Letter of Credit Issuer and each of the Banks in connection with the
enforcement of the Credit Documents and the documents and instruments referred
to therein and, after an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing,
the protection of the rights of the Administrative Agent, the Letter of Credit
Issuer and each of the Banks thereunder (including, without limitation, the
reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel (including in-house counsel) for
the Administrative Agent, the Letter of Credit Issuer and for each of the
Banks); (iii) pay and hold each of the Banks harmless from and against any and
all present and future stamp and other similar taxes with respect to the
foregoing matters and save each of the Banks harmless from and against any and
all liabilities with respect to or resulting from any delay or omission (other
than to the extent attributable to such Bank) to pay such taxes; and (iv)
indemnify the Administrative Agent, the Letter of Credit Issuer and each Bank,
its officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents from and hold
each of them harmless against any and all losses, liabilities, claims, damages
or expenses incurred by any of them as a result of, or arising out of, or in any
way related to, or by reason of, any investigation, litigation or other
proceeding (whether or not the Administrative Agent, the Letter of Credit Issuer
or any Bank is a party thereto) related to the entering into and/or performance
of any Credit Document or the use of the proceeds of any Loans or Letter of
Credit hereunder or the consummation of any other transactions contemplated in
any Credit Document including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and
disbursements of counsel incurred in connection with any such investigation,
litigation or other proceeding (but excluding 

                                     -115-

any such losses, liabilities, claims, damages or expenses to the extent 
incurred by reason of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the 
Person to be indemnified).

            12.02 Right of Setoff. In addition to any rights now or hereafter 
granted under applicable law or otherwise, and not by way of limitation of 
any such rights, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, each Bank 
(including to the extent such Bank is, or is deemed to be, the holder of a 
funded participation in any Swingline Loan, Canadian Dollar Loan, and/or 
Letter of Credit) is hereby authorized at any time or from time to time, 
without presentment, demand, protest or other notice of any kind to the 
Company or any of its Subsidiaries or to any other Person, any such notice 
being hereby expressly waived, to set off and to appropriate and apply any 
and all deposits (general or special) and any other Indebtedness at any time 
held or owing by such Bank (including, without limitation, by branches and 
agencies of such Bank wherever located) to or for the credit or the account 
of any Credit Party against and on account of the Obligations and liabilities 
of such Credit Party to such Bank under this Agreement or under any of the 
other Credit Documents, including, without limitation, all interests in 
Obligations of such Credit Party purchased by such Bank pursuant to Section 
12.06(b), and all other claims of any nature or description arising out of or 
connected with this Agreement or any other Credit Document, irrespective of 
whether or not such Bank shall have made any demand hereunder and although 
said Obligations, liabilities or claims, or any of them, shall be contingent 
or unmatured.

            12.03 Notices. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all
notices and other communications provided for hereunder shall be in writing
(including facsimile communication) and mailed, facsimilied or delivered, if to
a Borrower, at the address specified opposite its signature below or in the
other relevant Credit Documents, as the case may be; if to any Bank, at its
address specified for such Bank on Annex II hereto; or, at such other address as
shall be designated by any party in a written notice to the other parties
hereto. All such notices and communications shall be mailed, facsimilied or
cabled or sent by overnight courier, and shall be effective when received.

            12.04 Benefit of Agreement. (a) This Agreement shall be binding upon
and inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the respective successors and
assigns of the parties hereto; provided that neither Borrower may assign or
transfer any of its respective rights or obligations hereunder without the prior
written consent of the Banks. Each Bank may at any time grant participations in
any of its rights hereunder to another financial institution; provided further,
that, in the case of any such participation, the participant shall not have any
rights under this Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents (the
participant's rights against such Bank in respect of such participation to

                                     -116-

be those set forth in the agreement executed by such Bank in favor of the 
participant relating thereto) and all amounts payable by either Borrower 
hereunder shall be determined as if such Bank had not sold such 
participation, except that the participant shall be entitled to receive the 
additional amounts under Sections 1.10, 1.11, 2.06 and 4.04 of this Agreement 
to, and only to, the extent that such Bank would be entitled to such benefits 
if the participation had not been entered into or sold; and provided further, 
that no Bank shall transfer, grant or assign any participation under which 
the participant shall have rights to approve any amendment to or waiver of 
this Agreement or any other Credit Document except to the extent such 
amendment or waiver would (i) extend the final scheduled maturity of any Loan 
in which such participant is participating (it being understood that any 
waiver of an installment on, or the application of any prepayment or the 
method of application of any prepayment to the amortization of the Loans 
shall not constitute an extension of the final scheduled maturity date), or 
reduce the rate or extend the time of payment of interest or Fees thereon 
(except in connection with a waiver of the applicability of any post-default 
increase in interest rates), or reduce the principal amount thereof, or 
increase such participant's participating interest in any Commitment over the 
amount thereof then in effect (it being understood that a waiver of any 
Default or Event of Default or of a mandatory reduction in the Total 
Commitment shall not constitute a change in the terms of any Commitment and 
that an increase in any Commitment shall be permitted without the consent of 
any participant if such participant's participation is not increased as a 
result thereof), (ii) release the Company from the Company Guaranty or 
release all or substantially all of the Subsidiary Guarantors from the 
Subsidiary Guaranty (in each case except as expressly provided in the Credit 
Documents) or (iii) in each case consent to the assignment or transfer by the 
Company, the Canadian Borrower or any other Subsidiaries of the Company of 
any of its rights and obligations under this Agreement or any other Credit 
Document except in accordance with the terms hereof and thereof.

            (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, (x) any Bank may assign all or a
portion of its Loans and/or Commitment and its rights and obligations hereunder
to its parent corporation and/or any affiliate of such Bank which is at least
50% owned by such Bank and/or its parent company and (y) with the consent of the
Administrative Agent and the Company, and, in the case of any assignment of
Tranche A Revolving Loans and/or Tranche A Revolving Loan Commitments, of the
Canadian Lender and the Letter of Credit Issuer (which consents in each case
shall not be unreasonably withheld, it being understood that the Company may
withhold its consent if the result of any such assignment is that the assigning
Bank and/or the assignee Bank will not have a pro rata exposure in this
Agreement and the Additional Credit Agreement), any Bank may assign all or a
portion of its Loans and/or Commitments and its rights and obligations hereunder

                                     -117-

to one or more commercial banks or other financial institutions (including one
or more Banks). No assignment pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence
shall (x) to the extent such transaction represents an assignment to an
institution other than one or more Banks hereunder, be in an aggregate amount
less than the minimum of $10,000,000 or (y) so long as no Default or Event of
Default then exists, reduce the Loans and Commitments of the assigning Bank to
an aggregate amount less than the Minimum Retention Amount unless the same are
reduced to $0. If any Bank so sells or assigns all or a part of its rights
hereunder, any reference in this Agreement or the other Credit Documents to such
assigning Bank shall thereafter refer to such Bank and to the respective
assignee Bank to the extent of their respective interests and the respective
assignee Bank shall have, to the extent of such assignment (unless otherwise
provided therein), the same rights and benefits as it would if it were
such assigning Bank. Each assignment pursuant to this Section 12.04(b) shall be
effected by the assigning Bank and the assignee Bank executing an Assignment and
Assumption Agreement substantially in the form of Exhibit G (appropriately
completed). At the time of any such assignment, (i) Annex I shall be deemed to
be amended to reflect the Commitments and outstanding Loans of the respective
assignee Bank (which shall result in a direct reduction to the respective
Commitments of the assigning Bank) and of the other Banks, (ii) the
Administrative Agent shall record such assignment and the resultant effects
thereof on the Loans and/or Commitments of the assigning Bank and the assignee
Bank in the Register and (iii) the Administrative Agent shall receive from the
assigning Bank and/or the assignee Bank at the time of each assignment the
payment of a nonrefundable assignment fee in an aggregate amount of $3,000 with
respect to each such assignment (provided that in the event of simultaneous
assignments relating to this Agreement and the Additional Credit Agreement, the
fees for such assignments shall total $3,000). Each Bank and the Company agree
to execute such documents (including, without limitation, amendments to this
Agreement and the other Credit Documents) as shall be necessary to effect the
foregoing. Promptly following any assignment pursuant to this Section 12.04(b),
the assigning Bank shall promptly notify the Company thereof. Nothing in this
Section 12.04(b) shall prevent or prohibit any Bank from pledging its Loans or,
if issued, Notes hereunder to a Federal Reserve Bank in support of borrowings
made by such Bank from such Federal Reserve Bank. Notwithstanding anything to
the contrary contained herein, the Canadian Dollar Loans may be assigned to the
Banks as contemplated by Section 1.01(g). Except as specifically provided in the
immediately preceding sentence and in Section 1.01(g), the Canadian Lender shall
not assign any portion of its rights or obligations hereunder in respect of the
Canadian Dollar Loans, except an assignment of all of its rights and obligations
in respect of such Canadian Dollar Loans to one commercial bank or other
financial institution acceptable to the Administrative Agent, the Company and
the Canadian Borrower.

                                     -118-

            (c) Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section 12.04, no
transfer or assignment of the interests or obligations of any Bank hereunder or
any grant of participations therein shall be permitted if such transfer,
assignment or grant would require the Company to file a registration statement
with the SEC or to qualify the Loans under the "Blue Sky" laws of any State.

            12.05 No Waiver; Remedies Cumulative. No failure or delay on the 
part of the Administrative Agent, the Letter of Credit Issuer or any Bank in 
exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder or under any other Credit 
Document and no course of dealing between either Borrower and the 
Administrative Agent, the Letter of Credit Issuer or any Bank shall operate 
as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, 
power or privilege hereunder or under any other Credit Document preclude any 
other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power 
or privilege hereunder or thereunder. The rights and remedies herein 
expressly provided are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies 
which the Administrative Agent, the Letter of Credit Issuer or any Bank would 
otherwise have. No notice to or demand on either Borrower in any case shall 
entitle such Borrower to any other or further notice or demand in similar or 
other circumstances or constitute a waiver of the rights of the 
Administrative Agent, the Letter of Credit Issuer or the Banks to any other 
or further action in any circumstances without notice or demand.

            12.06 Payments Pro Rata. (a) The Administrative Agent agrees that
promptly after its receipt of each payment from or on behalf of a Borrower in
respect of any Obligations of such Borrower hereunder, it shall, except as
otherwise provided in this Agreement, distribute such payment to the Banks
(other than any Bank that has consented in writing to waive its pro rata share
of such payment) pro rata based upon their respective shares, if any, of the
Obligations with respect to which such payment was received.

            (b) Each of the Banks agrees that, if it should receive any amount
hereunder (whether by voluntary payment, by realization upon security, by the
exercise of the right of setoff or banker's lien, by counterclaim or cross
action, by the enforcement of any right under the Credit Documents, or
otherwise) which is applicable to the payment of the principal of, or interest
on, the Loans, Unpaid Drawings or Fees, of a sum which with respect to the
related sum or sums received by other Banks is in a greater proportion than the
total of such Obligation then owed and due to such Bank bears to the total of
such Obligation then owed and due to all of the Banks immediately prior to such
receipt, then such Bank receiving such excess payment shall purchase for cash
without recourse or warranty from the other Banks an interest in the Obligations
of

                                     -119-

the respective Borrower to such Banks in such amount as shall result in a
proportional participation by all of the Banks in such amount; provided that if
all or any portion of such excess amount is thereafter recovered from such Bank,
such purchase shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent
of such recovery, but without interest.

            (c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the
provisions of the preceding Sections 12.06(a) and (b) shall be subject to the
express provisions of this Agreement which require, or permit, differing
payments to be made to Non-Defaulting Banks as opposed to Defaulting Banks.

            12.07 Calculations; Computations. (a) The financial statements to 
be furnished to the Banks pursuant hereto shall be made and prepared in 
accordance with GAAP consistently applied throughout the periods involved 
(except as set forth in the notes thereto or as otherwise disclosed in 
writing by the Company to the Banks); provided that except as otherwise 
specifically provided herein, all computations determining compliance with 
Section 8, including definitions used therein, shall utilize accounting 
principles and policies in effect at the time of the preparation of, and in 
conformity with those used to prepare, the December 31, 1995 historical 
financial statements delivered to the Banks pursuant to Section 6.10(a); 
provided further, that in the event that the Accounting Standards Executive 
Committee of the AICPA adopts the statement of position (substantially in the 
proposed form as of the Effective Date) relating to computer software 
developed or obtained for internal use, and the Company's independent 
auditors concur with such accounting change as it relates to the presentation 
of the Company's financial statements, then compliance with Section 8 will 
thereafter be determined giving effect to such statement of position.

            (b) All computations of interest (other than interest on Base Rate
Loans) and Fees hereunder shall be made on the actual number of days elapsed
over a year of 360 days. All computations of interest on Base Rate Loans
hereunder shall be made on the actual number of days elapsed over a year of 365
days.

            12.08 Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction; Venue. (a) THIS
AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER CREDIT DOCUMENTS AND THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE
PARTIES HEREUNDER AND THEREUNDER SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH AND BE
GOVERNED BY THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK. Any legal action or proceeding
with respect to this Agreement or any other Credit Document may be brought in
the courts of the State of New York or of the United States for the Southern
District of New York, 

                                     -120-

and, by execution and delivery of this Agreement, each Borrower hereby 
irrevocably accepts for itself and in respect of its property, generally and 
unconditionally, the jurisdiction of the aforesaid courts. Each Borrower 
hereby further irrevocably waives any claim that any such courts lack 
jurisdiction over such Borrower, and agrees not to plead or claim, in any 
legal action or proceeding with respect to this Agreement or any other Credit 
Document brought in any of the aforesaid courts, that any such court lacks 
jurisdiction over such Borrower. Each Borrower irrevocably consents to the 
service of process in any such action or proceeding by the mailing of copies 
thereof by registered or certified mail, postage prepaid, to such Borrower, 
at its address for notices pursuant to Section 12.03, such service to become 
effective 30 days after such mailing. Each Borrower hereby irrevocably waives 
and agrees not to plead or claim in any action or proceeding commenced 
hereunder or under any other Credit Document that service of process was in 
any way invalid or ineffective. The Company hereby represents and warrants 
that its chief executive office is located at 745 Fifth Avenue, New York, New 
York 10151, and the Company hereby further agrees that it shall not move its 
chief executive office unless it shall give the Administrative Agent not less 
than 30 days' prior written notice of its intention so to do. The Company 
agrees that (x) prior to moving its chief executive office outside New York 
City and (y) and if for any reason any designee, appointee and agent 
previously appointed pursuant to this sentence shall cease to be available to 
act as such, the Company shall designate a designee, appointee and agent or 
replacement designee, appointee and agent, as the case may be, in New York 
City on the terms and for the purposes of this provision satisfactory to the 
Administrative Agent. Nothing herein shall affect the right of the 
Administrative Agent, any Bank or the holder of any Note to serve process in 
any other manner permitted by law or to commence legal proceedings or 
otherwise proceed against either Borrower in any other jurisdiction.

            (b) Each Borrower hereby irrevocably waives any objection which it
may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any of the aforesaid actions
or proceedings arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or any other
Credit Document brought in the courts referred to in clause (a) above and hereby
further irrevocably waives and agrees not to plead or claim in any such court
that any such action or proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in
an inconvenient forum.

            12.09 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of
counterparts and by the different parties hereto on separate counterparts, each
of which when so executed and delivered shall be an original, but all of which
shall together constitute one and the same instrument. A complete set of
counterparts executed by all the parties hereto shall be lodged with the Company
and the Administrative Agent.

                                     -121-

            12.10 Effectiveness. This Agreement shall become effective on the
date (the "Effective Date") on which each Borrower, the Administrative Agent and
each of the Banks shall have signed a copy hereof (whether the same or different
copies) and shall have delivered the same to the Administrative Agent at its
Notice Office or, in the case of the Banks, shall have given to the
Administrative Agent telephonic (confirmed in writing), written or facsimile
notice (actually received) at such office that the same has been signed and
mailed to it. The Administrative Agent will give each Borrower and each Bank
prompt written notice of the occurrence of the Effective Date.

subsections of this Agreement are inserted for convenience only and shall not in
any way affect the meaning or construction of any provision of this Agreement.

            12.12 Amendment or Waiver. Neither this Agreement nor any other
Credit Document nor any terms hereof or thereof may be changed, waived,
discharged or terminated unless such change, waiver, discharge or termination is
in writing signed by each Borrower and the Required Banks; provided that no such
change, waiver, discharge or termination shall, without the consent of each Bank
(other than a Defaulting Bank) affected thereby, (i) extend any Scheduled A
Commitment Reduction Date, any Scheduled B Commitment Reduction Date or
Scheduled TL Repayment Date or reduce the amount of any Scheduled A Commitment
Reduction, any Scheduled B Commitment Reduction or any Scheduled TL Repayment
(or any mandatory repayment arising as a result of any such Scheduled A
Commitment Reduction or any such Scheduled B Commitment Reduction) or extend the
final scheduled maturity of any Loan (it being understood that any waiver of the
application of any prepayment of or the method of application of any prepayment
to the amortization of the Loans shall not constitute any such extension), or
reduce the rate or extend the time of payment of interest (other than as a
result of waiving the applicability of any post-default increase in interest
rates) or Fees thereon, or reduce the principal amount thereof, or increase the
Commitments of any Bank over the amount thereof then in effect (it being
understood that a waiver of any Default or Event of Default or of a mandatory
repayment or reduction in the Total Commitment shall not constitute a change in
the terms of any Commitment of any Bank), (ii) release the Company from the
Company Guaranty or release all or substantially all of the Subsidiary
Guarantors from the Subsidiary Guaranty (in each case except as expressly
provided in the Credit Documents), (iii) amend, modify or waive any provision of
this Section, or Section 1.10, 1.11, 2.06, 4.04, 9.01, 11.07, 12.01, 12.02,
12.04, 12.06 or 12.07(b), (iv) reduce the percentage specified in, or otherwise
modify, the definition of, Required Banks, (v) increase the Maximum Canadian
Dollar Amount or (vi) consent to the assignment or transfer by any Credit Party

obligations under this Agreement or any other Credit Document except in 
accordance with the terms hereof or thereof. No provision of Section 2 or 11 
may be amended without the consent of the Letter of Credit Issuer or the 
Administrative Agent. No provision relating to Canadian Dollar Loans may be 
amended without the consent of the Canadian Lender.

            12.13 Survival. All indemnities set forth herein including, without
limitation, in Sections 1.10, 1.11, 2.06, 4.04, 11.07 or 12.01, shall survive
the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the making and repayment of the
Loans and the satisfaction of all other Obligations.

            12.14 Domicile of Loans. Each Bank may transfer and carry its 
Loans at, to or for the account of any branch office, subsidiary or affiliate 
of such Bank, provided, that the Borrowers shall not be responsible for costs 
arising under Sections 1.10, 1.11, 2.06 or 4.04 resulting from any such 
transfer (other than a transfer pursuant to Section 1.12) to the extent such 
costs would not otherwise be applicable to such Bank in the absence of such 
transfer.

            12.15 Confidentiality. Each of the Banks agrees that it will use its
best efforts not to disclose without the prior consent of the Company (other
than to its employees, auditors, counsel or other professional advisors, to
affiliates or to another Bank if the Bank or such Bank's holding or parent
company in its sole discretion determines that any such party should have access
to such information) any information with respect to the Company or any of its
Subsidiaries which is furnished pursuant to this Agreement and which is
designated by the Company to the Banks in writing as confidential, provided that
any Bank may disclose any such information (a) as has become generally available
to the public, (b) as may be required or appropriate in any report, statement or
testimony submitted to any municipal, state, provincial or Federal regulatory
body having or claiming to have jurisdiction over such Bank or to the Federal
Reserve Board or the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or similar
organizations (whether in the United States or elsewhere) or their successors,
(c) as may be required or appropriate in response to any summons or subpoena or
in connection with any litigation, (d) in order to comply with any law, order,
regulation or ruling applicable to such Bank, and (e) to any prospective
transferee in connection with any contemplated transfer of any of the Loans
and/or Commitments or any interest herein by such Bank, provided that such
prospective transferee agrees to be bound by the provisions of this Section.

                                     -123-

            12.16  Waiver of Jury Trial.  EACH OF THE PARTIES TO THIS
AGREEMENT HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ALL RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION,
