(vi) CREDIT AGREEMENT, dated as of February 20, 1997, among CAPSTAR BROADCASTING PARTNERS, INC., a Delaware corporation ("Holdings"), COMMODORE MEDIA, INC., a Delaware corporation (the "Borrower"), the Banks party hereto from time to time and BANKERS TRUST COMPANY, as Administrative Agent (all capitalized terms used herein and defined in Section 11 are used herein as therein defined). 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 to the Borrower the credit facilities provided for herein; NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS AGREED: SECTION 1. Amount and Terms of Credit. 1.01 Commitment. Subject to and upon the terms and conditions set forth herein, each Bank severally agrees, at any time and from time to time on and after the Effective Date and prior to the Final Maturity Date, to make a loan or loans (each a "Loan" and, collectively, the "Loans") to the Borrower, which Loans (i) shall, at the option of the Borrower, be Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Loans, provided that, (A) except as otherwise specifically provided in Section 1.10(b), all Loans comprising the same Borrowing shall at all times be of the same Type and (B) no Loans maintained as Eurodollar Loans may be incurred prior to the earlier of (1) the 60th day after the Effective Date and (2) the Syndication Date, (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 added to the product of (x) such Bank's Adjusted Percentage and (y) the aggregate amount of all Letter of Credit Outstandings (exclusive of Unpaid Drawings which are repaid with the proceeds of, and simultaneously with the incurrence of, the respective incurrence of Loans) at such time, equals the Adjusted Available Commitment of such Bank at such time and (iv) shall not exceed for all Banks at any time outstanding that aggregate principal amount which, when added to the amount of all Letter of Credit Outstandings (exclusive of Unpaid Drawings which are repaid with the proceeds of, and simultaneously with the incurrence of, the respective incurrence of Loans) at such time, equals the Total Available Commitment at such time. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained above, no Loans may be incurred on the Effective Date. 1.02 Minimum Amount of Each Borrowing. The aggregate principal amount of each Borrowing shall not be less than (x) in the case of Eurodollar Loans, $200,000 (and, if greater, shall be in an integral multiple of $50,000) and (y) in the case of Base Rate Loans, $25,000 (and, if greater, shall be in an integral multiple of $25,000) or, if less, the then remaining Total Available Commitment. More than one Borrowing may occur on the same date, but at no time shall there be outstanding more than six Borrowings of Eurodollar Loans. 1.03 Notice of Borrowing. (a) Whenever the Borrower desires to incur a Borrowing hereunder, it shall give the Administrative Agent at its Notice Office at least one Business Day's prior written (or telephonic promptly confirmed in writing) notice of each Base Rate Loan and at least three Business Days' prior written (or telephonic promptly confirmed in writing) notice of each Eurodollar Loan to be made hereunder, provided that any such notice shall be deemed to have been given on a certain day only if given before 12:00 Noon (New York time) on such day. Each such written notice or written confirmation of telephonic notice (each a "Notice of Borrowing"), except as otherwise expressly provided in Section 1.10, shall be irrevocable and shall be given by the Borrower in the form of Exhibit A, appropriately completed to specify the aggregate principal amount of the Loans to be made pursuant to such Borrowing, the date of such Borrowing (which shall be a Business Day), whether the Loans being made pursuant to such Borrowing are to be initially maintained as Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Loans and, if Eurodollar Loans, the initial Interest Period to be applicable thereto. The Administrative Agent shall promptly give each Bank notice of such proposed Borrowing, of such Bank's proportionate share thereof and of the other matters required by the immediately preceding sentence to be specified in the Notice of Borrowing. (b) Without in any way limiting the obligation of the Borrower to confirm in writing any telephonic notice of any Borrowing of Loans, the Administrative Agent may act without liability upon the basis of telephonic notice of such Borrowing, believed by the Administrative Agent in good faith to be from an Authorized Officer of the Borrower prior to receipt of written confirmation. In each such case, the Borrower hereby waives the right to dispute the Administrative Agent's record of the terms of such telephonic notice of such Borrowing of Loans. 1.04 Disbursement of Funds. Except as otherwise specifically provided in the second succeeding sentence, no later than 12:00 Noon (New York time) on the date specified in each Notice of Borrowing, each Bank will make available its pro rata portion of each such Borrowing requested to be made on such date. All such amounts shall be made available in Dollars and in immediately available funds at the Payment Office of the Administrative Agent, and the Administrative Agent will make available to the Borrower at the Payment Office the aggregate of the amounts so made available by the Banks (prior to 1:00 P.M. on such day, to the extent of funds actually received by the Administrative Agent prior to 12:00 Noon on such day). Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified by any Bank prior to the date of Borrowing that such Bank does not intend to make available to the Administrative Agent such Bank's portion of any Borrowing 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 may, in -2- reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrower a corresponding amount. If such corresponding amount is not in fact made available to the Administrative Agent by such Bank, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover such corresponding amount on demand 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 Borrower and the Borrower shall immediately pay such corresponding amount to the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall also be entitled to recover on demand from such Bank or the Borrower, 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 Borrower until the date such corresponding amount is recovered by the Administrative Agent, at a rate per annum equal to (i) if recovered from such Bank, at the overnight Federal Funds Rate and (ii) if recovered from the Borrower, the rate of interest applicable to the respective Borrowing, as determined pursuant to Section 1.08. Nothing in this Section 1.04 shall be deemed to relieve any Bank from its obligation to make Loans hereunder or to prejudice any rights which the Borrower may have against any Bank as a result of any failure by such Bank to make Loans hereunder. 1.05 Notes. (a) The Borrower's obligation to pay the principal of, and interest on, the Loans made by each Bank shall be evidenced by a promissory note duly executed and delivered by the Borrower substantially in the form of Exhibit B, with blanks appropriately completed in conformity herewith (each, a "Note" and, collectively, the "Notes"). (b) The Note issued to each Bank shall (i) be executed by the Borrower, (ii) be payable to the order of such Bank and be dated the Effective Date, (iii) be in a stated principal amount equal to the Commitment of such Bank and be payable in the principal amount of the Loans evidenced thereby, (iv) mature on the Final Maturity Date, (v) bear interest as provided in the appropriate clause of Section 1.08 in respect of the Base Rate Loans and Eurodollar Loans, as the case may be, evidenced thereby, (vi) be subject to voluntary prepayment as provided in Section 4.01, and mandatory repayment as provided in Section 4.02 and (vii) be entitled to the benefits of this Agreement and the other Credit Documents. (c) Each Bank will note on its internal records the amount of each Loan made by it and each payment in respect thereof and will prior to any transfer of any of its Notes endorse on the reverse side thereof the outstanding principal amount of Loans evidenced thereby. Failure to make any such notation or any error in any such notation or endorsement shall not affect the Borrower's obligations in respect of such Loans. 1.06 Conversions. The Borrower shall have the option to convert, on any Business Day on or after the earlier of (x) the 60th day after the Effective Date and (y) the Syndication Date, all or a portion equal to at least (i) in the case of Eurodollar Loans, $200,000 (and, if greater, in an -3- integral multiple of $50,000) and (ii) in the case of Base Rate Loans, $25,000 (and, if greater, in an integral multiple of $25,000), of the outstanding principal amount of Loans made pursuant to one or more Borrowings of one or more Types of Loans into a Borrowing of another Type of Loan, provided that (i) except as otherwise provided in Section 1.10(b), Eurodollar Loans may be converted into Base Rate Loans only on the last day of an Interest Period applicable to the Loans being converted and no partial conversion of Eurodollar Loans shall reduce the outstanding principal amount of such Eurodollar Loans made pursuant to a single Borrowing to less than $200,000, (ii) Base Rate Loans may not be converted into Eurodollar Loans if a violation of Sections 10.01 or 10.05 or an Event of Default is in existence on the date of the conversion and the Administrative Agent or the Required Banks have determined that such conversion at such time would be disadvantageous to the Banks and (iii) no conversion pursuant to this Section 1.06 shall result in a greater number of Eurodollar Loans than is permitted under Section 1.02. Each such conversion shall be effected by the Borrower by giving the Administrative Agent at its Notice Office prior to 12:00 Noon (New York time) at least three Business Days' prior notice (each a "Notice of Conversion") specifying the Loans to be so converted, the Borrowing or Borrowings pursuant to which such Loans were made and, if to be converted into 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 Loans under this Agreement shall be incurred from the Banks pro rata on the basis of their Commitments. 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 provided to be made by it hereunder, regardless of the failure of any other Bank to make its Loans hereunder. 1.08 Interest. (a) The Borrower agrees to pay interest in respect of the unpaid principal amount of each Base Rate Loan from the date the proceeds thereof are made available to the Borrower until the earlier of (i) the maturity (whether by acceleration, optional or mandatory, or otherwise) of such Base Rate Loan and (ii) the conversion of such Base Rate Loan to a Eurodollar Loan pursuant to Section 1.06, at a rate per annum which shall be equal to the sum of the Applicable Margin plus the Base Rate in effect from time to time. (b) The Borrower agrees to pay interest in respect of the unpaid principal amount of each Eurodollar Loan from the date the proceeds thereof are made available to the Borrower until the earlier of (i) the maturity (whether by acceleration, optional or mandatory, or otherwise) of such Eurodollar Loan and (ii) the conversion of such Eurodollar Loan to a Base Rate Loan pursuant to Section 1.06, 1.09 or 1.10, as applicable, at a rate per annum which shall, during each Interest Period applicable thereto, be equal to the sum of the Applicable Margin plus the Eurodollar Rate for such Interest Period. -4- (c) Overdue principal and, to the extent permitted by law, overdue interest in respect of each Loan and any other overdue amount payable hereunder shall, in each case, bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the greater of (x) 2% per annum in excess of the rate otherwise applicable to Base Rate Loans from time to time and (y) the rate which is 2% in excess of the rate then borne by such Loans, in each case with such interest to be payable on demand. (d) Accrued (and theretofore unpaid) interest shall be payable (i) in respect of each Base Rate Loan, quarterly in arrears on each Quarterly Payment Date, (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 repayment or prepayment (on the amount repaid or prepaid), at maturity (whether by acceleration or otherwise) and, after such maturity, on demand. (e) Upon each Interest Determination Date, the Administrative Agent shall determine the Eurodollar Rate for each Interest Period applicable to Eurodollar Loans and shall promptly notify the Borrower and the Banks thereof. Each such determination shall, absent manifest error, be final and conclusive and binding on all parties hereto. 1.09 Interest Periods. At the time it gives any Notice of Borrowing or Notice of Conversion in respect of the making of, or conversion into, any Eurodollar Loan (in the case of the initial Interest Period applicable thereto) or on the third Business Day prior to the expiration of an Interest Period applicable to such Eurodollar Loan (in the case of any subsequent Interest Period), the Borrower shall have the right to elect, by giving the Administrative Agent notice thereof, the interest period (each an "Interest Period") applicable to such Eurodollar Loan, which Interest Period shall, at the option of the Borrower, be a one, two, three, six or, if available to each of the Banks, nine or twelve month period, provided that: (i) all Eurodollar Loans comprising a Borrowing shall at all times have the same Interest Period; (ii) the initial Interest Period for any Eurodollar Loan shall commence on the date of Borrowing of such Eurodollar Loan (including the date of any conversion thereto from a Loan of a different Type) and each Interest Period occurring thereafter in respect of such Eurodollar Loan shall commence on the day on which the next preceding Interest Period applicable thereto expires; (iii) if any Interest Period relating to a Eurodollar Loan 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; -5- (iv) 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, however, that if any Interest Period for a Eurodollar Loan 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; (v) no Interest Period may be selected at any time when a violation of Sections 10.01 or 10.05 or an Event of Default is then in existence and the Administrative Agent or the Required Banks have determined that such an election at such time would be disadvantageous to the Banks; and (vi) no Interest Period in respect of any Borrowing shall be selected which extends beyond the Final Maturity Date. If upon the expiration of any Interest Period applicable to a Borrowing of Eurodollar Loans, the Borrower has failed to elect, or is not permitted to elect, a new Interest Period to be applicable to such Eurodollar Loans as provided above, the Borrower shall be deemed to have elected to convert such Eurodollar Loans into 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 any Bank shall have determined (which determination with respect to clause (i) below, may be made only by the Administrative Agent): (i) on any Interest Determination Date that, by reason of any changes arising after the Effective Date 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 Loan because of (x) any change since the Effective Date in any applicable law or governmental rule, regulation, order, guideline 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, order, guideline or request, such as, for example, but not limited to: (A) a change in the basis of taxation of payment to any Bank of the principal of or interest on such Eurodollar Loan or any other amounts payable hereunder (except for changes in the rate of tax on, or determined by reference to, the net income or profits of such Bank, or any franchise tax based on the net income or profits of such Bank, in either case pursuant to the laws of the United States of America or the jurisdiction in which it is organized or in which -6- its principal office or applicable lending office is located or any subdivision thereof or therein), but without duplication of any amounts payable in respect of Taxes pursuant to Section 4.04(a), or (B) a change in official reserve requirements, but, in all events, excluding reserves required under Regulation D to the extent included in the computation of the Eurodollar Rate and/or (y) other circumstances since the Effective Date affecting such Bank or the interbank Eurodollar market or the position of such Bank in such market; or (iii) at any time, that the making or continuance of any Eurodollar Loan has been made (x) unlawful by any law or governmental rule, regulation or order, (y) impossible by compliance by any Bank in good faith with any governmental request (whether or not having force of law) or (z) 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 promptly give notice (by telephone confirmed in writing) to the Borrower and, except in the case of clause (i) above, 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 Borrower 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 the Borrower with respect to Eurodollar Loans which have not yet been incurred (including by way of conversion) shall be deemed rescinded by the Borrower, (y) in the case of clause (ii) above, the Borrower shall, subject to the provisions of Section 13.15 (to the extent applicable) pay to such Bank, upon written demand therefor, 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 and certifying that it is generally charging such costs to other similarly situated borrowers under similar credit facilities, submitted to the Borrower by such Bank in good faith shall, absent manifest error, be final and conclusive and binding on all the parties hereto) and (z) in the case of clause (iii) above, the 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. Each of the Administrative Agent and each Bank agrees that if it gives notice to the Borrower of any of the events described in clause (i) or (iii) above, it shall promptly notify the Borrower and, in the case of any such Bank, the Administrative Agent, if such event ceases to exist. If any such event described in clause (iii) above ceases to exist as to a Bank, the obligations of such Bank to make Eurodollar Loans and to convert Base Rate Loans into Eurodollar Loans on the terms and conditions contained herein shall be reinstated. -7- (b) At any time that any Eurodollar Loan is affected by the circumstances described in Section 1.10(a)(ii) or (iii), the Borrower may (and in the case of a Eurodollar Loan affected by the circumstances described in Section 1.10(a)(iii) shall) either (x) if the affected Eurodollar Loan is then being made initially or pursuant to a conversion, cancel the respective Borrowing by giving the Administrative Agent telephonic notice (confirmed in writing) on the same date that the Borrower was notified by the affected Bank or the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 1.10(a)(ii) or (iii) or (y) if the affected Eurodollar Loan is then outstanding, upon at least three Business Days' written notice to the Administrative Agent given immediately, or if permitted by applicable law given at such later date permitted thereby, require the affected Bank to convert such Eurodollar Loan into a Base Rate Loan, 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) If at any time after the Effective Date any Bank determines that the introduction of or any change in any applicable law or governmental rule, regulation, order, guideline, directive or request (whether or not having the force of law) concerning capital adequacy, or any change in interpretation or administration thereof by any governmental authority, central bank or comparable agency, will have the effect of increasing the amount of capital required or expected to be maintained by such Bank or any corporation controlling such Bank based on the existence of such Bank's Commitments hereunder or its obligations hereunder, then the Borrower shall, subject to the provisions of Section 13.15 (to the extent applicable), pay to such Bank, upon its written demand therefor, such additional amounts as shall be required to compensate such Bank or such other corporation for the increased cost to such Bank or such other corporation or the reduction in the rate of return to such Bank or such other corporation as a result of such increase of capital. In determining such additional amounts, each Bank will act reasonably and in good faith and will use averaging and attribution methods which are reasonable, provided that such Bank's reasonable good faith determination (made in a manner generally consistent with such Bank's standard practices) of compensation owing under this Section 1.10(c) shall, absent manifest error, be final and conclusive and binding on all the parties hereto. Each Bank, upon determining that any additional amounts will be payable pursuant to this Section 1.10(c), will give prompt written notice thereof to the Borrower, which notice shall show the basis for calculation of such additional amounts and certify that it is generally charging such costs to other similarly situated borrowers under similar credit facilities. 1.11 Compensation. The Borrower shall, subject to the provisions of Section 13.15 (to the extent applicable), compensate each Bank, 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 any loss of anticipated profit) which such Bank may sustain: (i) if for any reason (other than a default by such Bank or the Administrative Agent) a Borrowing of, or conversion from or into, Eurodollar Loans does not occur on a date specified therefor in a Notice of Borrowing or Notice of -8- Conversion (whether or not withdrawn by the Borrower or deemed withdrawn pursuant to Section 1.10(a) or (b)); (ii) if any repayment (including any repayment made pursuant to Section 4.02 or as a result of an acceleration of the Loans pursuant to Section 10) or conversion of any of its Eurodollar Loans occurs on a date which is not the last day of an Interest Period with respect thereto; (iii) if any prepayment of any of its Eurodollar Loans is not made on any date specified in a notice of prepayment given by the Borrower; or (iv) as a consequence of (x) any other default by the Borrower to repay its Loans when required by the terms of this Agreement or any Note held by such Bank or (y) any election made pursuant to Section 1.10(b). 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), Section 2.05 or Section 4.04 with respect to such Bank, it will, if requested by the Borrower, use reasonable efforts (subject to overall policy considerations of such Bank) to designate another lending office for any Loans affected by such event, provided that such designation is made on such terms that such Bank and its lending office suffer no economic, legal or regulatory disadvantage, with the object of avoiding the consequence of the event giving rise to the operation of such Section. Nothing in this Section 1.12 shall affect or postpone any of the obligations of the Borrower or the right of any Bank provided in Sections 1.10, 2.05 and 4.04. 1.13 Replacement of Banks. (x) If any Bank becomes a Defaulting Bank or otherwise defaults in its obligations to make Loans or fund Unpaid Drawings, (y) upon the occurrence of any event giving rise to the operation of Section 1.10(a)(ii) or (iii), Section 1.10(c), Section 2.05 or Section 4.04 with respect to any Bank which results in such Bank charging to the Borrower increased costs in excess of those being generally charged by the other Banks or (z) as provided in Section 13.12(b) in the case of certain refusals by a Bank (other than a Bank whose commitments are terminated in accordance with Section 3.02(b) and/or whose Loans are repaid in accordance with Section 4.01(v)) to consent to certain proposed changes, waivers, discharges or terminations with respect to this Agreement which have been approved by the Required Banks, the Borrower shall have the right, if no Default or Event of Default will exist immediately after giving effect to the respective replacement, to either replace such Bank (the "Replaced Bank") with one or more other Eligible Transferee or Transferees reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent, none of whom shall constitute a Defaulting Bank at the time of such replacement (collectively, the "Replacement Bank") provided that (i) at the time of any replacement pursuant to this Section 1.13, the Replacement Bank shall enter into one or more Assignment and Assumption Agreements pursuant to Section 13.04(b) (and with all fees payable pursuant to said Section 13.04(b) to be paid by the Replacement Bank) pursuant to which the Replacement Bank shall acquire the Commitment and outstanding Loans of, and in each case participations in Letters of Credit by, the Replaced Bank and, in connection therewith, shall pay to (x) the Replaced Bank 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 all Unpaid Drawings that have been funded by -9- (and not reimbursed to) such Replaced Bank, together with all then unpaid interest with respect thereto at such time and (C) an amount equal to all accrued, but theretofore unpaid, Fees owing to the Replaced Bank pursuant to Section 3.01 and (y) any Issuing Bank an amount equal to 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 any Unpaid Drawing (which at such time remains an Unpaid Drawing) to the extent such amount was not theretofore funded by such Replaced Bank, and (ii) all obligations of the 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 and Assumption Agreements, the payment of amounts referred to in clauses (i) and (ii) above, the recordation of the assignment in the Register by the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 13.17 and, if so requested by the Replacement Bank, delivery to the Replacement Bank of the appropriate Note or Notes executed by the Borrower, (x) the Replacement Bank shall become a Bank hereunder and the Replaced Bank shall cease to constitute a Bank hereunder, except with respect to indemnification provisions under this Agreement (including, without limitation, Sections 1.10, 1.11, 2.05, 4.04, 12.06 and 13.01, as the same may be limited by Section 13.15 (to the extent applicable)), which shall survive as to such Replaced Bank and (y) in the case of a replacement of a Defaulting Bank with a Non-Defaulting Bank, 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). Any replacement of a Bank pursuant to this Section 1.13 shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any rights which the Borrower, the Administrative Agent or any other Bank shall have against the Replaced Bank. SECTION 2. Letters of Credit. 2.01 Letters of Credit. (a) Subject to and upon the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Borrower may request that any Issuing Bank issue, at any time and from time to time on and after the Effective Date and prior to the Final Maturity Date, (x) for the account of the Borrower and for the benefit of any holder (or any trustee, agent or other similar representative for any such holders) of L/C Supportable Obligations of the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, an irrevocable sight standby letter of credit, in a form customarily used by such Issuing Bank or in such other form as has been approved by such Issuing Bank (each such standby letter of credit, a "Standby Letter of Credit") in support of such L/C Supportable Obligations and (y) for the account of the Borrower, an irrevocable sight commercial letter of credit in a form customarily used by such Issuing Bank (each such commercial letter of credit, a "Trade Letter of Credit" and each such Trade Letter of Credit and each Standby Letter of Credit, a "Letter of Credit") in support of customary commercial transactions of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries. -10- (b) Each Issuing Bank may agree in its sole discretion, and BTCo hereby agrees that, in the event a requested Letter of Credit is not issued by one of the other Issuing Banks, it will (subject to the terms and conditions contained herein), at any time and from time to time on or after the Effective Date and prior to the Final Maturity Date, following its receipt of the respective Letter of Credit Request, issue for the account of the Borrower one or more Letters of Credit (x) in the case of Standby Letters of Credit, in support of such L/C Supportable Obligations of the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries and (y) in the case of Trade Letters of Credit, in support of sellers of goods as referenced in Section 2.01(a), provided that the respective Issuing Bank shall be under no obligation to issue any Letter of Credit of the types described above if at the time of such issuance: (i) any order, judgment or decree of any governmental authority or arbitrator shall purport by its terms to enjoin or restrain such Issuing Bank from issuing such Letter of Credit or any requirement of law applicable to such Issuing Bank or any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any governmental authority with jurisdiction over such Issuing Bank shall prohibit, or request that such Issuing Bank refrain from, the issuance of letters of credit generally or such Letter of Credit in particular or shall impose upon such Issuing Bank with respect to such Letter of Credit any restriction or reserve or capital requirement (for which such Issuing Bank is not otherwise compensated, including, without limitation, by reimbursement from the Borrower) not in effect on the date hereof, or any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which was not applicable, in effect or known to such Issuing Bank as of the date hereof and which such Issuing Bank in good faith deems material to it; or (ii) such Issuing Bank shall have received notice from any Bank prior to the issuance of such Letter of Credit of the type described in the second sentence of Section 2.02(b). (c) Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) no Letter of Credit shall be issued the Stated Amount of which, when added to the Letter of Credit Outstandings (exclusive of Unpaid Drawings which are repaid on the date of, and prior to the issuance of, the respective Letter of Credit) at such time would exceed either (x) $15,000,000 minus the aggregate amount of cash earnest money deposits outstanding at such time pursuant to Section 9.01(xviii) or (y) when added to the aggregate outstanding principal amount of all Loans of Non-Defaulting Banks, the Adjusted Total Available Commitment; (ii) each Letter of Credit shall be denominated in Dollars; (iii) the Stated Amount of each Letter of Credit shall be no less than $50,000 or such lesser amount as is acceptable to the Issuing Bank; and (iv) each Letter of Credit shall by its terms terminate (A) in the case of Standby Letters of Credit, on or before the earlier of (x) the date which occurs 12 months after the date of the issuance thereof (although any such Letter of Credit may be extendable, if such Letter of Credit could otherwise be issued pursuant to the terms and conditions hereof, for successive periods of up to 12 months, but not beyond the Business Day next preceding the Final Maturity Date), and (y) the -11- Business Day next preceding the Final Maturity Date and (B) in the case of Trade Letters of Credit, on or before the earlier of (x) the date which occurs 180 days after the date of issuance thereof and (y) the date which is 30 days prior to the Final Maturity Date. 2.02 Letter of Credit Requests. (a) Whenever the Borrower desires that a Letter of Credit be issued for its account, the Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent and the respective Issuing Bank at least two Business Days' (or such shorter period as is acceptable to the respective Issuing Bank) written notice thereof. In the case of Letters of Credit to be issued pursuant to Section 2.01, each notice shall be in the form of Exhibit C (each a "Letter of Credit Request"). (b) The making of each Letter of Credit Request shall be deemed to be a representation and warranty by the Borrower that such Letter of Credit may be issued in accordance with, and will not violate the requirements of, Section 2.01(c). Unless the respective Issuing Bank has received notice from any Bank before it issues a Letter of Credit that one or more of the conditions specified in Section 5 or Section 6 are not then satisfied, or that the issuance of such Letter of Credit would violate Section 2.01(c), then such Issuing Bank may issue the requested Letter of Credit for the account of the Borrower in accordance with such Issuing Bank's usual and customary practices. Upon its issuance of any Standby Letter of Credit, such Issuing Bank shall promptly notify each Bank participating therein of such issuance, which notice shall be accompanied by a copy of the Letter of Credit actually issued and any amendments thereto. For Trade Letters of Credit on which the Issuing Bank is other than the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank will send to the Administrative Agent by facsimile transmission, promptly on the first Business Day of each week, the daily aggregate Stated Amounts of Trade Letters of Credit available during the preceding week. The Administrative Agent will send to each Bank after each calendar month end and upon each Letter of Credit Fee payment, a report setting forth for the relevant period the daily aggregate Stated Amount of all outstanding Trade Letters of Credit of all Issuing Banks during such period. 2.03 Letter of Credit Participations. (a) Immediately upon the issuance by any Issuing Bank of any Letter of Credit, such Issuing Bank shall be deemed to have sold and transferred to each Bank other than such Issuing Bank (each such Bank, in its capacity under this Section 2.03, a "Participant"), and each such Participant shall be deemed irrevocably and unconditionally to have purchased and received from such Issuing Bank, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation, to the extent of such Participant's Adjusted Percentage, in such Letter of Credit, each drawing made thereunder and the obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement with respect thereto, and any security therefor or guaranty pertaining thereto (although the Letter of Credit Fee shall be payable directly to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Participants as provided in Section 3.01(b) and the Participants shall have no right to receive any portion of any Facing Fees). Upon any change in the respective Commitments or Adjusted Percentages of the Banks pursuant to Section 1.13 or 13.04(b) or as a result of a Bank Default, it is hereby agreed that, with respect to all such outstanding Letters of Credit and Unpaid Drawings, there shall be an -12- automatic adjustment to the participations pursuant to this Section 2.03 to reflect the new Adjusted Percentages of the assignor and assignee Bank or of all Banks, as the case may be. (b) In determining whether to pay under any Letter of Credit, such Issuing Bank shall have no obligation relative to the other Banks other than to confirm that any documents required to be delivered under such Letter of Credit appear to have been delivered and that they appear to substantially comply on their face with the requirements of such Letter of Credit. Any action taken or omitted to be taken by any Issuing Bank under or in connection with any Letter of Credit if taken or omitted in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct and in accordance with the standards of care specified in the Uniform Commercial Code of the State of New York, shall not create for such Issuing Bank any resulting liability to the Borrower or any Bank. (c) In the event that any Issuing Bank makes any payment under any Letter of Credit and the Borrower shall not have reimbursed such amount in full to such Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 2.04(a), such Issuing Bank shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent, which shall promptly notify each Participant of such failure, and each Participant shall promptly and unconditionally pay to such Issuing Bank the amount of such Participant's Adjusted Percentage of such unreimbursed payment in Dollars and in same day funds. If the Administrative Agent so notifies, prior to 11:00 A.M. (New York time) on any Business Day, any Participant required to fund a payment under a Letter of Credit, such Participant shall make available to such Issuing Bank in Dollars 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 such Issuing Bank, such Participant agrees to pay to such Issuing Bank, forthwith on demand such amount, together with interest thereon, for each day from such date until the date such amount is paid to such Issuing Bank at the overnight Federal Funds Rate. The failure of any Participant to make available to such Issuing Bank 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 such Issuing Bank its Adjusted Percentage of 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 such Issuing Bank such other Participant's Adjusted Percentage of any such payment. (d) Whenever any Issuing Bank receives a payment of a reimbursement obligation as to which it has received any payments from the Participants pursuant to clause (c)above, such Issuing Bank shall pay to each Participant which has paid its Adjusted Percentage thereof, in Dollars and in same day funds, an amount equal to such Participant's share (based upon the proportionate aggregate amount originally funded by such Participant to the aggregate amount funded by all Participants) of the principal amount of such reimbursement obligation and interest thereon accruing after the purchase of the respective participations. -13- (e) The obligations of the Participants to make payments to each Issuing Bank with respect to Letters of Credit issued by it shall be irrevocable and not subject to any 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, setoff, defense or other right which the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries 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, any Issuing Bank, any Participant, or any 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 Borrower and the beneficiary named in any such Letter of Credit); (iii) any draft, certificate or any other document presented under any 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. 2.04 Agreement to Repay Letter of Credit Drawings. (a) The Borrower hereby agrees to reimburse the respective Issuing Bank, by making payment directly to such Issuing Bank in immediately available funds, for any payment or disbursement made by it under any Letter of Credit (each such amount, so paid until reimbursed, an "Unpaid Drawing"), no later than three Business Days after the date of such payment or disbursement, with interest on the amount so paid or disbursed by such Issuing Bank, to the extent not reimbursed prior to 12:00 Noon (New York time) on the date of such payment or disbursement, from and including the date paid or disbursed to but excluding the date such Issuing Bank was reimbursed by the Borrower therefor at a rate per annum which shall be the Base Rate in effect from time to time plus the Applicable Margin for Loans maintained as Base Rate Loans; provided, however, to the extent such amounts are not reimbursed prior to 12:00 Noon (New York time) on the fifth Business Day following such payment or disbursement, interest shall thereafter accrue on the amounts so paid or disbursed by such Issuing Bank (and until reimbursed by the Borrower) at a rate per annum which shall be the Base Rate in effect from time to time plus the Applicable Margin for Loans maintained as Base Rate Loans plus -14- 2%, in each such case, with interest to be payable on demand. The respective Issuing Bank shall give the Borrower prompt notice of each Drawing under any Letter of Credit, provided that the failure to give any such notice shall in no way affect, impair or diminish the Borrower's obligations hereunder. (b) The obligations of the Borrower under this Section 2.04 to reimburse the respective Issuing Bank with respect to drawings on Letters of Credit (each, a "Drawing") (including, in each case, interest thereon) shall be absolute and unconditional under any and all circumstances and irrespective of any setoff, counterclaim or defense to payment which the Borrower may have or have had against any Bank (including in its capacity as the issuer of the Letter of Credit or as Participant), or any nonapplication or misapplication by the beneficiary of the proceeds of such Drawing, the respective Issuing Bank's only obligation to the Borrower being to confirm that any documents required to be delivered under such Letter of Credit appear to have been delivered and that they appear to substantially comply on their face with the requirements of such Letter of Credit. Any action taken or omitted to be taken by any Issuing Bank under or in connection with any Letter of Credit if taken or omitted in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct and in accordance with the standards of care specified in the Uniform Commercial Code of the State of New York, shall not create for such Issuing Bank any resulting liability to the Borrower. 2.05 Increased Costs. If at any time after the Effective Date, the introduction of or any change in any applicable law, rule, regulation, order, guideline or request or in the interpretation or administration thereof by any governmental authority charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by any Issuing Bank or any Participant, or any corporation controlling such Person, with any request or directive by any such authority (whether or not having the force of law), shall either (i) impose, modify or make applicable any reserve, deposit, capital adequacy or similar requirement against letters of credit issued by any Issuing Bank or participated in by any Participant, or (ii) impose on any Issuing Bank or any Participant, or any corporation controlling such Person, any other conditions relating, directly or indirectly, to this Agreement or any Letter of Credit; and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to any Issuing Bank or any Participant of issuing, maintaining or participating in any Letter of Credit, or reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by any Issuing Bank or any Participant hereunder or reduce the rate of return on its capital with respect to Letters of Credit (except for changes in the rate of tax on, or determined by reference to, the net income or profits of such Issuing Bank or such Participant, or any corporation controlling such Person, or any franchise tax based on the net income or profits of such Bank or Participant, or any corporation controlling such Person, in either case pursuant to the laws of the United States of America, the jurisdiction in which it is organized or in which its principal office or applicable lending office is located or any subdivision thereof or therein), but without duplication of any amounts payable in respect of taxes pursuant to Section 4.04(a), then, upon demand to the Borrower by such Issuing Bank or any Participant (a copy of which demand shall be sent by such Issuing Bank or such Participant to the Administrative Agent) and subject to -15- the provisions of Section 13.15 (to the extent applicable), the Borrower shall pay to such Issuing Bank or such Participant such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Bank for such increased cost or reduction in the amount receivable or reduction on the rate of return on its capital. Any Issuing Bank or any Participant, upon determining that any additional amounts will be payable pursuant to this Section 2.05, will give prompt written notice thereof to the Borrower, which notice shall include a certificate submitted to the Borrower by such Issuing Bank or such Participant (a copy of which certificate shall be sent by such Issuing Bank or such Participant to the Administrative Agent), setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for the calculation of such additional amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Issuing Bank or such Participant. The certificate required to be delivered pursuant to this Section 2.05 shall, if delivered in good faith and absent manifest error, be final and conclusive and binding on the Borrower. SECTION 3. Commitment Commission; Fees; Reductions of Commitment. 3.01 Fees. (a) The Borrower agrees to pay the Administrative Agent for distribution to each Non- Defaulting Bank a commitment commission (the "Commitment Commission") for the period from the Effective Date to and including the Final Maturity Date (or such earlier date as the Total Commitment shall have been terminated), computed at a rate for each day equal to 1/2 of 1% per annum on the daily average Unutilized Commitment of such Non-Defaulting Bank. Accrued Commitment Commission shall be due and payable quarterly in arrears on each Quarterly Payment Date and on the Final Maturity Date or such earlier date upon which the Total Commitment is terminated. (b) The Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for distribution to each Non-Defaulting Bank (based on their respective Adjusted Percentages), a fee in respect of each Letter of Credit issued hereunder (the "Letter of Credit Fee"), for the period from and including the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit, to and including the termination of such Letter of Credit computed at a rate per annum equal to the difference between (i) the Applicable Margin for Loans maintained as Eurodollar Loans as in effect from time to time and (ii) 1/4 of 1% on the daily Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit. Accrued Letter of Credit Fees shall be due and payable quarterly in arrears on each Quarterly Payment Date and upon the first day on or after the termination of the Total Commitment upon which no Letters of Credit remain outstanding. (c) The Borrower agrees to pay to the respective Issuing Bank, for its own account, a facing fee in respect of each Letter of Credit issued for its account hereunder (the "Facing Fee") for the period from and including the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit to and including the termination of such Letter of Credit, computed at a rate equal to 1/4 of 1% per annum of the daily Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit; provided, that in no event shall the annual Facing Fee be less than $500. Accrued Facing Fees shall be due and payable quarterly in arrears on each Quarterly -16- Payment Date and on the date upon which the Total Commitment has been terminated and no Letters of Credit remain outstanding. (d) The Borrower shall pay, upon each payment under, issuance of, or amendment to, any Letter of Credit, such amount as shall at the time of such event be the administrative charge and reasonable out-of-pocket expenses which the respective Issuing Bank is generally imposing in connection with such occurrence with respect to letters of credit. (e) The Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for its own account, such other fees as have been agreed to in writing by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent. 3.02 Voluntary Termination and Reduction of Total Unutilized Commitment. (a) Upon at least two 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 Borrower shall have the right, at any time or from time to time, without premium or penalty, to terminate or partially reduce the Total Unutilized Commitment, in whole or in part, provided that (x) each such reduction shall apply proportionately to permanently reduce the Commitment of each Bank (y) any partial reduction pursuant to this Section 3.02 shall be in integral multiples of $200,000 and (z) the reduction to the Total Unutilized Commitment shall in no case be in an amount which would cause the Commitment of any Bank to be reduced (as required by the preceding clause (x)) by an amount which exceeds the Unutilized Commitment of such Bank as in effect immediately before giving effect to such reduction. (b) In the event of certain refusals by a Bank as provided in Section 13.12(b) to consent to certain proposed changes, waivers, discharges or terminations with respect to this Agreement which have been approved by the Required Banks, the Borrower shall have the right, upon five Business Days' written notice to the Administrative Agent at its Notice Office (which notice the Administrative Agent shall promptly transmit to each of the Banks) terminate the entire Commitment of such Bank, so long as all Loans, together with accrued and unpaid interest, Fees and other amounts, owing to such Bank are repaid concurrently with the effectiveness of such termination pursuant to Section 4.01(v) (at which time Schedule I shall be deemed modified to reflect such changed amounts), and at such time such Bank shall no longer constitute a "Bank" for purposes of this Agreement, except with respect to indemnifications under this Agreement (including, without limitation, Sections 1.10, 1.11, 2.05, 4.04, 12.06 and 13.01, as the same may be limited by Section 13.15 (to the extent applicable)), which shall survive as to such repaid Bank. 3.03 Mandatory Reduction of Commitments, etc. (a) Unless the Effective Date shall have occurred on or before March 31, 1997, the Total Commitment (and the Commitment of each Bank) shall terminate in its entirety. -17- (b) In addition to any other mandatory commitment reductions pursuant to this Section 3.03, the Total Commitment (and the Commitment of each Bank) shall terminate in its entirety on the Final Maturity Date. (c) In addition to any other mandatory commitment reductions pursuant to this Section 3.03, on each date after the Effective Date upon which Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries receives any proceeds from any incurrence by Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries of Indebtedness for borrowed money (other than Indebtedness for borrowed money permitted to be incurred pursuant to Section 9.04), the Total Commitment shall be permanently reduced by an amount equal to 100% of the cash proceeds of the respective incurrence of Indebtedness (net of all reasonable costs associated therewith, including, without limitation, all due diligence costs and expenses paid for, or reimbursed by, Holdings and/or any of its Subsidiaries, any underwriting or similar fees, discounts and commissions, attorneys' fees and expenses paid for, or reimbursed by, Holdings and/or any of its Subsidiaries, all financing and/or commitment fees and other direct costs associated therewith).

At the time of the acquisition of any Reinvestment Assets, Holdings shall comply and shall cause its Subsidiaries to comply with Section 8.12. (e) In addition to any other mandatory commitment reductions pursuant to this Section 3.03, within 10 days following each date after the Effective Date on which Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries receives any proceeds from any Recovery Event, the Total Commitment shall be permanently reduced by an amount equal to 100% of the proceeds of such Recovery Event (net of reasonable costs including, without limitation, legal costs and expenses and taxes incurred in connection with such Recovery Event), provided that (x) so long as no Default or Event of Default then exists and such proceeds do not exceed $2,500,000, such proceeds shall not give rise to a reduction to the Total Commitment on such date to the extent that the Borrower has delivered a certificate to the Administrative Agent on or prior to such date stating that such proceeds shall be used to replace or restore any properties or assets in respect of which such proceeds were paid within 180 days following the date of such Recovery Event (which certificate shall set forth the estimates of the proceeds to be so expended) and (y) so long as no Default or Event of Default then exists and to the extent that (a) the amount of such proceeds exceeds $2,500,000, (b) the Borrower has delivered to the Administrative Agent a certificate on or prior to the date the application would otherwise be required pursuant to this Section 3.03(e) in the form described in clause (x) above and also certifying the sufficiency of cash availability required by succeeding clause (c), and (c) the Borrower has delivered to the Administrative Agent such evidence as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request in form and substance satisfactory to the Administrative Agent establishing that the Borrower has or will have sufficient cash from ordinary cash flow, business interruption insurance or from other sources satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and that the Borrower will be receiving regular payments thereunder in such amounts and at such times as are necessary to satisfy all obligations and expenses of the Borrower (including, without limitation, all debt service requirements, including pursuant to this Agreement), without any delay or extension thereof, for the period from the date of the respective casualty, condemnation or other event giving rise to the Recovery Event and continuing through the completion of the replacement or restoration of respective properties or assets, then the entire amount and not just the portion in excess of $2,500,000 shall temporarily reduce the Total Commitment and shall constitute Blocked Commitments until the date on which such proceeds are to be used to replace or restore the respective properties or assets on which date such amount shall, subject to Section 6, be available to the Borrower as Loans or Letters of Credit, as applicable, to pay actual costs incurred by it in connection with the replacement or -19- restoration of the respective properties or assets (pursuant to such certification requirements as may be established by the Administrative Agent), and, provided further, that if all or any portion of such proceeds not required to reduce the Total Commitment pursuant to the preceding proviso (whether pursuant to clause (x) or (y) thereof) are either (A) not so used within 180 days after the date of receipt of proceeds from the respective Recovery Event or (B) if committed to be used within 180 days after the date of receipt of proceeds from the respective Recovery Event and not so used within 360 days after the date of receipt of proceeds from the respective Recovery Event, then, in either case, the Total Commitment shall be permanently reduced by such remaining portion not used or committed to be used in the case of the preceding clause (A) and not used in the case of preceding clause (B), on the date which is 180 days following the date of receipt of proceeds from the respective Recovery Event in the case of clause (A) above, or the date which is 360 days after the date of receipt of proceeds from the respective Recovery Event in the case of clause (B) above.

(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, however, no Credit Party may assign or transfer any of its rights, obligations or interest hereunder or under any other Credit Document without the prior written consent of the Banks and, provided further, that, although any Bank may transfer, assign or grant participations in its rights hereunder, such Bank shall remain a "Bank" for all purposes hereunder (and may not transfer or assign all or any portion of its Commitment hereunder except as provided in Section 13.04(b)) and the transferee, assignee or participant, as the case may be, shall not constitute a "Bank" hereunder and, provided further, that no Bank shall transfer or grant 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, Note or Letter of Credit (unless such Letter of Credit is not extended beyond the Final Maturity Date) in which such participant is participating, or reduce the rate or extend the time of payment of interest or Fees thereon (except in connection with a waiver of applicability of any post-default increase in interest rates) or reduce the principal amount thereof, or increase the amount of the participant's participation 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 such participation, and that an increase in any Commitment or Loan and an increase in the available portion of any Commitment of any Bank shall be permitted without the consent of any participant if the participant's participation is not increased as a result thereof), (ii) consent to the assignment or transfer by the Borrower of any of its rights and obligations under this Agreement or (iii) release all or substantially all of the Collateral under all of the Security Documents (except as expressly provided in the Credit Documents) supporting the Loans hereunder in which such participant is participating. 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 be those set forth in the agreement executed by such Bank in favor of the participant relating thereto) and all amounts payable by the Borrower hereunder shall be determined as if such Bank had not sold such participation. (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Bank (or any Bank together with one or more other Banks) may (x) assign all or a portion of its Commitment (and related outstanding Obligations hereunder) to its parent company and/or any affiliate of such Bank which is at least 50% owned by such Bank or its parent company or to one or more Banks or (y) assign all, or if less than all, a portion equal to at least $2,500,000 in the aggregate for the assigning Bank or assigning Banks, of such Commitments hereunder to one or more Eligible Transferees, each of which assignees shall become a party to this Agreement as a Bank by execution of an Assignment and Assumption Agreement, provided that, (i) at such time Schedule I shall be deemed modified to reflect the Commitment of such new Bank and of the existing Banks, (ii) upon surrender of the old Notes, new Notes will be issued, at the Borrower's expense, to such new Bank and to the assigning Bank, such -110- new Notes to be in conformity with the requirements of Section 1.05 (with appropriate modifications) to the extent needed to reflect the revised Commitment, (iii) the consent of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower shall be required in connection with any such assignment pursuant to clause (y) of the Section 13.04(b) (which consents shall not be unreasonably withheld) and (iv) the Administrative Agent shall receive at the time of each such assignment, from the assigning or assignee Bank, the payment of a non-refundable assignment fee of $3,500 and, provided further, that such transfer or assignment will not be effective until recorded by the Administrative Agent on the Register pursuant to Section 13.17 hereof. To the extent of any assignment pursuant to this Section 13.04(b), the assigning Bank shall be relieved of its obligations hereunder with respect to its assigned Commitment. At the time of each assignment pursuant to this Section 13.04(b) to a Person which is not already a Bank hereunder and which is not a United States person (as such term is defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code) for Federal income tax purposes, the respective assignee Bank shall provide to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent the appropriate Internal Revenue Service Forms (and, if applicable a Section 4.04(b)(ii) Certificate) described in Section 4.04(b). To the extent that an assignment of all or any portion of a Bank's Commitment and related outstanding Obligations pursuant to Section 1.13 or this Section 13.04(b) would, at the time of such assignment, result in increased costs under Section 1.10, 1.11, 2.05 or 4.04 from those being charged by the respective assigning Bank prior to such assignment, then the Borrower shall not be obligated to pay such increased costs (although the Borrower shall be obligated to pay any other increased costs of the type described above resulting from changes after the date of the respective assignment). (c) Nothing in this Agreement shall prevent or prohibit any Bank from pledging its Loans and Notes hereunder to a Federal Reserve Bank in support of borrowings made by such Bank from such Federal Reserve Bank. 13.05 No Waiver; Remedies Cumulative. No failure or delay on the part of the Administrative Agent or any Bank or any holder of any Note in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder or under any other Credit Document and no course of dealing between the Borrower or any other Credit Party and the Administrative Agent or any Bank or the holder of any Note 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, powers and remedies herein or in any other Credit Document expressly provided are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights, powers or remedies which the Administrative Agent or any Bank or the holder of any Note would otherwise have. No notice to or demand on any Credit Party in any case shall entitle any Credit Party to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances or constitute a waiver of the rights of the Administrative Agent or any Bank or the holder of any Note to any other or further action in any circumstances without notice or demand. -111- 13.06 Payments Pro Rata. (a) Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, the Administrative Agent agrees that promptly after its receipt of each payment from or on behalf of the Borrower in respect of any Obligations hereunder, it shall distribute such payment to the Banks (other than any Bank that has consented in writing to waive its pro rata share of any 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, Commitment Commission or Letter of Credit 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 the respective Credit Party to such Banks in such amount as shall result in a proportional participation by all 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 13.06(a) and (b) shall be subject to the express provisions of this Agreement which require, or permit, differing pay the Borrower to the Banks); provided that, except as otherwise specifically provided herein, all computations of Excess Cash Flow and all computations determining compliance with Sections 9.07 through 9.10, inclusive, shall utilize accounting principles and policies in conformity with those used to prepare the historical financial statements delivered to the Banks pursuant to Section 7.05(a) (with the foregoing generally accepted accounting principles, subject to the preceding proviso, herein called "GAAP"). (b) All computations of interest, Commitment Commission and Fees hereunder shall be made on the basis of a year of 360 days for the actual number of days (including the first day but -112- excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such interest, Commitment Commission or Fees are payable. 13.08 GOVERNING LAW; SUBMISSION TO JURISDICTION; VENUE; WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL.

Each Bank may transfer and carry its Loans at, to or for the account of any office, Subsidiary or Affiliate of such Bank. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, to the extent that a transfer of Loans pursuant to this Section 13.14 would, at the time of such transfer, result in increased costs under Section 1.10, 1.11, 2.05 or 4.04 from those being charged by the respective Bank prior to such transfer, then the Borrower shall not be obligated to pay such increased costs (although the Borrower shall be obligated to pay any other increased costs of the type described above resulting from changes giving rise to such increased costs after the date of the respective transfer). 13.15 Limitation on Additional Amounts, etc. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section 1.10, 1.11, 2.05 or 4.04 of this Agreement, unless a Bank gives notice to the Borrower that it is obligated to pay an amount under the respective Section within six months after the date the Bank incurs the respective increased costs, Taxes, loss, expense or liability, reduction in amounts received or receivable or reduction in return on capital, then such Bank shall only be entitled to be compensated for such amount by the Borrower pursuant to said Section 1.10, 1.11, 2.05 or 4.04, as the case may be, to the extent the costs, Taxes, loss, expense or liability, reduction in amounts received or receivable or reduction in return on capital are incurred or suffered on or after the date which occurs six months prior to such Bank giving notice to the Borrower that it is obligated to pay the respective amounts pursuant to said Section 1.10, 1.11, 2.05 or 4.04, as the case may be; provided that if the circumstances giving rise to such claims have a retroactive effect, then such six month period shall be extended to include the period of such retroactive effect. This Section 13.15 shall have no applicability to any Section of this Agreement other than said Sections 1.10, 1.11, 2.05 and 4.04. 13.16 Confidentiality. (a) Subject to the provisions of clause (b) of this Section 13.16, each Bank agrees that it will use its best efforts not to disclose without the prior consent of Holdings or the Borrower (other than to its employees, auditors, advisors or counsel 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, provided such Persons shall be subject to the provisions of this Section 13.16 to the same extent as such Bank) any information with respect to Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries which is now or in the future furnished pursuant to this -116- Agreement or any other Credit Document and which is designated by Holdings 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 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 respect 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, (e) to the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent and (f) to any prospective or actual transferee or participant in connection with any contemplated transfer or participation of any of the Notes or Commitments or any interest therein by such Bank, provided that such prospective transferee agrees to abide by the provisions of this Section 13.16. (b) Each of Holdings and the Borrower hereby acknowledges and agrees that each Bank may share with any of its affiliates any information related to Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries (including, without limitation, any nonpublic customer information regarding the creditworthiness of Holdings and its Subsidiaries, provided such Persons shall be subject to the provisions of this Section 13.16 to the same extent as such Bank). 13.17 Register. The Borrower hereby designates the Administrative Agent to serve as the Borrower's agent, solely for purposes of this Section 13.17, to maintain a register (the "Register") on which it will record the Commitments from time to time of each of the Banks, the Loans made by each of the Banks and each repayment in respect of the principal amount of the Loans of each Bank. Failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such recordation shall not affect the Borrower's obligations in respect of such Loans. With respect to any Bank, the transfer of the Commitments of such Bank and the rights to the principal of, and interest on, any Loan made pursuant to such Commitments shall not be effective until such transfer is recorded on the Register maintained by the Administrative Agent with respect to ownership of such Commitments and Loans and prior to such recordation all amounts owing to the transferor with respect to such Commitments and Loans shall remain owing to the transferor. The registration of assignment or transfer of all or part of any Commitments and Loans shall be recorded by the Administrative Agent on the Register only upon the acceptance by the Administrative Agent of a properly executed and delivered Assignment and Assumption Agreement pursuant to Section 13.04(b). Coincident with the delivery of such an Assignment and Assumption Agreement to the Administrative Agent for acceptance and registration of assignment or transfer of all or part of a Loan, or as soon thereafter as practicable, the assigning or transferor Bank shall surrender the Note evidencing such Loan, and thereupon one or more new Notes in the same aggregate principal amount shall be issued to the assigning or transferor Bank and/or the new Bank. The Borrower agrees to indemnify the Administrative Agent from and against any and all losses, claims, damages and liabilities of whatsoever nature which may be -117- imposed on, asserted against or incurred by the Administrative Agent in performing its duties under this Section 13.17. 13.18 Designated Senior Indebtedness. Each Credit Party hereby designates its obligations under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents as "Designated Senior Indebtedness" for purposes of, and as defined in, the Existing Senior Subordinated Note Indenture. SECTION 14. Holdings Guaranty. 14.01 The Guaranty. In order to induce the Banks to enter into this Agreement and to extend credit hereunder and in recognition of the direct benefits to be received by Holdings from the proceeds of the Loans and the issuance of the Letters of Credit and to induce the Banks or any of their respective Affiliates to enter into Interest Rate Protection Agreements, Holdings hereby agrees with the Banks as follows: Holdings hereby unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees as primary obligor and not merely as surety the full and prompt payment when due, whether upon maturity, by acceleration or otherwise, of any and all of the Guaranteed Obligations of the Borrower to the Secured Creditors. If any or all of the Guaranteed Obligations of the Borrower to the Secured Creditors becomes due and payable hereunder, Holdings unconditionally promises to pay such indebtedness to the Secured Creditors, or order, on demand, together with any and all reasonable expenses which may be incurred by the Administrative Agent or the Secured Creditors in collecting any of the Guaranteed Obligations. 14.02 Bankruptcy. Additionally, Holdings unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees the payment of any and all of the Guaranteed Obligations of the Borrower to the Secured Creditors whether or not then due or payable by the Borrower upon the occurrence in respect of the Borrower of any of the events specified in Section 10.05, and unconditionally and irrevocably promises to pay such Guaranteed Obligations to the Secured Creditors, or order, on demand, in lawful money of the United States. 14.03 Nature of Liability. (a) The liability of Holdings hereunder is exclusive and independent of any security for or other guaranty of the Guaranteed Obligations of the Borrower whether executed by Holdings, any other guarantor or by any other party, and the liability of Holdings hereunder shall not be affected or impaired by (i) any direction as to application of payment by the Borrower or by any other party, or (ii) any other continuing or other guaranty, undertaking or maximum liability of a guarantor or of any other party as to the Guaranteed Obligations of the Borrower, or (iii) any payment on or in reduction of any such other guaranty or undertaking, or (iv) any dissolution, termination or increase, decrease or change in personnel by the Borrower, or (v) any payment made to the Administrative Agent or the Secured Creditors on the Guaranteed Obligations which the Administrative Agent or such Secured Creditors repay to the Borrower pursuant to court order in any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, moratorium or other debtor relief proceeding, -118- and Holdings waives any right to the deferral or modification of its obligations hereunder by reason of any such proceeding. (b) If claim is ever made upon the Administrative Agent or any Secured Creditor for repayment or recovery of any amount or amounts received in payment or on account of any of the Guaranteed Obligations and any of the aforesaid payees repays all or part of said amount by reason of (i) any judgment, decree or order of any court or administrative body having jurisdiction over such payee or any of its property or (ii) any settlement or compromise of any such claim effected by such payee with any such claimant (including the Borrower), then and in such event Holdings agrees that any such judgment, decree, order, settlement or compromise shall be binding upon Holdings, notwithstanding any revocation hereof or other instrument evidencing any liability of the Borrower, and Holdings shall be and remain liable to the aforesaid payees hereunder for the amount so repaid or recovered to the same extent as if such amount had never originally been received by any such payee. 14.04 Independent Obligation. The obligations of Holdings hereunder are independent of the obligations of any other guarantor or the Borrower, and a separate action or actions may be brought and prosecuted against Holdings whether or not action is brought against any other guarantor or the Borrower and whether or not any other guarantor or the Borrower be joined in any such action or actions. Holdings waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the benefit of any statute of limitations affecting its liability hereunder or the enforcement thereof. Any payment by the Borrower or other circumstance which operates to toll any statute of limitations as to the Borrower shall operate to toll the statute of limitations as to Holdings. This Guaranty is a continuing one and all liabilities to which it applies or may apply under the terms hereof shall be conclusively presumed to have been created in reliance hereon. 14.05 Authorization. Holdings authorizes the Administrative Agent and the Secured Creditors without notice or demand (except as shall be required by applicable statute and cannot be waived), and without affecting or impairing its liability hereunder, from time to time to: (a) change the manner, place or terms of payment of, and/or change or extend the time of payment of, renew, increase, accelerate or alter, any of the Guaranteed Obligations (including any increase or decrease in the rate of interest thereon), any security therefor, or any liability incurred directly or indirectly in respect thereof, and the Guaranty herein made shall apply to the Guaranteed Obligations as so changed, extended, renewed or altered; (b) take and hold security for the payment of the Guaranteed Obligations and sell, exchange, release, surrender, realize upon or otherwise deal with in any manner and in any order any property by whomsoever at any time pledged or mortgaged to secure, or howsoever -119- securing, the Guaranteed Obligations or any liabilities (including any of those hereunder) incurred directly or indirectly in respect thereof or hereof, and/or any offset thereagainst; (c) exercise or refrain from exercising any rights against the Borrower or others or otherwise act or refrain from acting; (d) release or substitute any one or more endorsers, guarantors, the Borrower or other obligors; (e) settle or compromise any of the Guaranteed Obligations, any security therefor or any liability (including any of those hereunder) incurred directly or indirectly in respect thereof or hereof, and may subordinate the payment of all or any part thereof to the payment of any liability (whether due or not) of the Borrower to its creditors other than the Banks; (f) apply any sums by whomsoever paid or howsoever realized to any liability or liabilities of the Borrower to the Secured Creditors regardless of what liability or liabilities of Holdings or the Borrower remain unpaid; (g) consent to or waive any breach of, or any act, omission or default under, this Agreement or any of the instruments or agreements referred to herein, or otherwise amend, modify or supplement this Agreement or any of such other instruments or agreements; and/or (h) take any other action which would, under otherwise applicable principles of common law, give rise to a legal or equitable discharge of Holdings from its liabilities under this Guaranty. 14.06 Reliance. It is not necessary for the Administrative Agent or the Secured Creditors to inquire into the capacity or powers of the Borrower or its Subsidiaries or the officers, directors, partners or agents acting or purporting to act on its behalf, and any Guaranteed Obligations made or created in reliance upon the professed exercise of such powers shall be guaranteed hereunder. 14.07 Subordination. Any of the indebtedness of the Borrower now or hereafter owing to Holdings is hereby subordinated to the Guaranteed Obligations of the Borrower owing to the Administrative Agent and the Secured Creditors; and if the Administrative Agent so requests at a time when an Event of Default exists, all such indebtedness of the Borrower to Holdings shall be collected, enforced and received by Holdings for the benefit of the Secured Creditors and be paid over to the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Secured Creditors on account of the Guaranteed Obligations of the Borrower to the Secured Creditors, but without affecting or impairing in any manner the liability of Holdings under the other provisions of this Guaranty. Prior to the transfer by -120- Holdings of any note or negotiable instrument evidencing any of the indebtedness of the Borrower to Holdings, Holdings shall mark such note or negotiable instrument with a legend that the same is subject to this subordination. The provisions of this Section 14.07 (and any claims of Holdings as described above) are subject to the provisions of Section 14.08(c) and (d). 14.08 Waiver. (a) Holdings waives any right (except as shall be required by applicable statute and cannot be waived) to require the Administrative Agent or the Secured Creditors to (i) proceed against the Borrower, any other guarantor or any other party, (ii) proceed against or exhaust any security held from the Borrower, any other guarantor or any other party or (iii) pursue any other remedy in the Administrative Agent's or the Secured Creditors' power whatsoever. Holdings waives any defense based on or arising out of any defense of the Borrower, any other guarantor or any other party, other than payment in full of the Guaranteed Obligations, based on or arising out of the disability of the Borrower, any other guarantor or any other party, or the unenforceability of the Guaranteed Obligations or any part thereof from any cause, or the cessation from any cause of the liability of the Borrower other than payment in full of the Guaranteed Obligations. The Administrative Agent and the Secured Creditors may, at their election, foreclose on any security held by the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent or the Secured Creditors by one or more judicial or nonjudicial sales, whether or not every aspect of any such sale is commercially reasonable (to the extent such sale is permitted by applicable law, including, but not limited to, the Communications Act), or exercise any other right or remedy the Administrative Agent and the Secured Creditors may have against the Borrower or any other party, or any security, without affecting or impairing in any way the liability of Holdings hereunder except to the extent the Guaranteed Obligations have been paid. Holdings waives any defense arising out of any such election by the Administrative Agent and the Secured Creditors, even though such election operates to impair or extinguish any right of reimbursement or subrogation or other right or remedy of Holdings against any Borrower or any other party or any security. (b) Holdings waives all presentments, demands for performance, protests and notices, including without limitation notices of nonperformance, notices of protest, notices of dishonor, notices of acceptance of this Guaranty, and notices of the existence, creation or incurring of new or additional Guaranteed Obligations. Holdings assumes all responsibility for being and keeping itself informed of the Borrower's financial condition and assets, and of all other circumstances bearing upon the risk of nonpayment of the Guaranteed Obligations and the nature, scope and extent of the risks which Holdings assumes and incurs hereunder, and agrees that the Administrative Agent and the Secured Creditors shall have no duty to advise Holdings of information known to them regarding such circumstances or risks. (c) Holdings understands that to the extent the Guaranteed Obligations are secured by Real Property, Holdings shall be liable for the full amount of the liability hereunder notwithstanding foreclosure on any such Real Property by trustee sale or any other reason impairing -121- Holdings' or any secured creditors' right to proceed against the Borrower. Holdings hereby waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable laws, all rights and benefits under Sections 580a, 580b, 580d and 726 of the California Code of Civil Procedure. In addition, Holdings hereby waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable laws, without limiting the generality of the foregoing or any other provision hereof, all rights and benefits which might otherwise be available to Holdings under California Civil Code Sections 2787 through 2855 inclusive, 2899 and 3433. (d) Holdings understands, is aware and hereby acknowledges that if the Banks elect to foreclose on any of the Mortgaged Property security nonjudicially, any right of subrogation of Holdings against the Borrower may be impaired or extinguished and that as a result of such impairment or extinguishment of subrogation rights, Holdings may have a defense to a deficiency judgment arising out of the operation of Section 580d of the California Code of Civil Procedure and related principles of estoppel. Holdings waives all rights and defenses arising out of an election of remedies by the Banks, even though that election of remedies, such as a nonjudicial foreclosure with respect to security for a guaranteed obligation, has destroyed the guarantor's rights of subrogation and reimbursement against the principal by the operation of Section 580d of the California Code of Civil Procedure or otherwise. 14.09 Nature of Liability. It is the desire and intent of Holdings and the Secured Creditors that this Guaranty shall be enforced against Holdings to the fullest extent permissible under the laws and public policies applied in each jurisdiction in which enforcement is sought. If, however, and to the extent that, the obligations of Holdings under this Guaranty shall be adjudicated to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason (including, without limitation, because of any applicable state or federal law relating to fraudulent conveyances or transfers), then the amount of the Guaranteed Obligations of Holdings shall be deemed to be reduced and Holdings shall pay the maximum amount of the Guaranteed Obligations which would be permissible under applicable law. -122- IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused their duly authorized officers to execute and deliver this Agreement as of the date first above written.
