SECTION 2.2 LOANS. (a) Each Syndicated Loan shall be made as part of a Borrowing consisting of Loans made by the Lenders ratably in accordance with their Commitments; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the failure of any Lender to make any Syndicated Loan shall not in itself relieve any other Lender of its obligation to lend hereunder (it being understood, however, that no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make any Loan required to be made by any such other Lender). Each Competitive Bid Loan shall be made as requested by the Borrower and in accordance with the procedure set forth in Section 2.3. Each Negotiated Bid Loan shall be made as requested by the Borrower and in accordance with the procedure set forth in Section 2.4. The Syndicated Loans or Competitive Bid Loans comprising any Borrowing shall be (i) in the case of a Competitive Bid Borrowing, in an aggregate principal amount which is an integral multiple of $1,000,000 and not less than $5,000,000, subject to the proviso in Section 2.3(c)(iii), and (ii) in the case of a Syndicated Borrowing, in an aggregate principal amount which is an integral multiple of $1,000,000 and not less than $10,000,000 (or an aggregate principal amount equal to the remaining balance of the available Commitments). - 11 - (b) Each Competitive Bid Borrowing shall be comprised entirely of LIBO Rate Loans or Fixed Rate Loans, and each Syndicated Borrowing shall be comprised entirely of LIBO Rate Loans or Base Rate Loans, as the Borrower may request pursuant to Section 2.3 or 2.5, as applicable.

(a) The Borrower may, by written notice to the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly deliver a copy to each of the Lenders), given not more than sixty (60) days prior to any anniversary of the Closing Date while the Commitments are in effect, request that the Lenders extend the then scheduled Maturity Date (the "Existing Date") for an additional one-year period. Each Lender shall, by notice to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent given within fifteen (15) Business Days after receipt of such request, advise the Borrower whether or not such Lender consents to the extension request (and any Lender which does not respond during such 15-day period shall be deemed to have advised the Borrower that it will not agree to such extension). (b) In the event that, on the 15th Business Day receipt of the notice delivered pursuant to subsection (a) above, not all of the Lenders shall have agreed to extend their Commitments, the Borrower shall notify the consenting Lenders ("Consenting Lenders") of the amount of the Commitments of the non-extending Lenders ("Non-Consenting Lenders") and such Consenting Lenders shall, by notice to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent given within ten (10) Business Days after receipt of such notice, advise the Administrative Agent and Borrower whether or not such Lender wishes to purchase all or a portion of the Commitments of the Non-Consenting Lenders (and any Lender which does not respond during such 10-Business Day period shall be deemed to have rejected such offer). In the event that more than one Consenting Lender agrees to purchase all or a portion of such Commitments, the Borrower and the Managing Agents shall allocate such Commitments among such Consenting Lenders so as to preserve, to the extent possible, the relative pro rata shares of the Consenting Lenders of the Commitments prior to such extension request. If - 20 - Consenting Lenders do not elect to assume all of the Commitments of the Non-Consenting Lenders, the Borrower shall have the right to arrange for one or more banks (any such bank being called an "New Lender"), to purchase the Commitment of any Non-Consenting Lender. Each Non-Consenting Lender shall assign its Commitment and the Loans outstanding hereunder to the Consenting Lender or New Lender purchasing such Commitment in accordance with Section 8.5, in return for payment in full of all principal, interest and other amounts owing to such Non-Consenting Lender hereunder, on or before the Existing Date and, as of the effective date of such assignment, shall no longer be a party hereto, provided that each New Lender shall be subject to the approval of the Managing Agents (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld). If (and only if) Lenders (including New Lenders) holding Commitments representing at least 75% of the aggregate Commitments on the date of such extension request shall have agreed to such extension by the Existing Date (the "Continuing Lenders"), then (i) the Maturity Date shall be extended for an additional one year and (ii) the Commitment of any Non-Consenting Lender which has not been assigned to a Consenting Lender or a New Lender shall terminate (with the result that the amount of the aggregate Commitments shall be decreased by the amount of such Commitment), and all Loans of such Non-Consenting Lender shall become due and payable, together with all interest accrued thereon and all other amounts owed to such Non-Consenting Lender hereunder, on the Existing Date applicable to such Lender without giving effect to any extension of the Maturity Date. (c) In the event that the Maturity Date of the Commitments has been extended as set forth above but any Non-Consenting Lender remains party to this Agreement with Commitments expiring on the Existing Date, the Borrower may, at any time prior to the ninetieth day following the effective date of such extension, arrange for one or more banks to purchase the Commitment and outstanding Loans of any such Non-Consenting Lender, with such bank, if not already a Lender hereunder, to be subject to the prior approval of the Administrative Agent (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld), and such Non-Consenting Lender shall assign its Commitment and Loans to such bank. If any Non-Consenting Lender remains party to this Agreement at the time of any subsequent extension request by the Borrower, Continuing Lenders holding 100% of the previously extended Commitments must agree to any such extension request in order for any such further extension to be effective so that at no time shall there be more than two different maturity dates in effect with respect to this Agreement. (d) The effective date of any extension of the Maturity Date shall be the Existing Date. The Administrative Agent shall enter any modifications made to the Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.13 in the Register maintained pursuant to Section 8.5(c). SECTION 2.14 INCREASE OF COMMITMENTS. (a) The Borrower may from time to time, by written notice to the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly deliver a copy to each of the Lenders), request that the Commitments be increased by an amount that is not less than $50,000,000 and an integral multiple of $10,000,000 and that will not result in the Commitments exceeding $600,000,000. Each such notice shall set forth (i) the requested amount of the increase in the Commitments and (ii) the date on which such increase is to become effective (which shall be not fewer than forty-five (45) nor more than sixty (60) days after the date of such notice), and shall offer - 21 - each Lender the opportunity to increase its Commitment by its ratable share, based on the pro rata amounts of the Commitments as of the date of the requested increase. Each Lender shall, by notice to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent given not more than fifteen (15) Business Days after the date of the Borrower's notice, either agree to increase its Commitment by all or a portion of the offered amount or decline to increase its Commitment (and any Lender that does not deliver such a notice within such period of fifteen (15) Business Days shall be deemed to have declined to increase its Commitment). (b) In the event that, on the 15th Business Day after the Borrower shall have delivered a notice pursuant to paragraph (a) above, the Lenders shall have agreed pursuant to paragraph (a) above to increase their Commitments by an aggregate amount less than the increase in the Commitments requested by the Borrower, the Borrower shall offer to the Lenders who have agreed to the ratable increase (the "Increasing Lenders"), the right to increase their Commitments by such unsubscribed amount. Each such Increasing Lender shall, by notice to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent given not more than ten (10) Business Days after such request, advise the Borrower whether it has elected to an additional increase of all or any portion of such unsubscribed amount (and any Increasing Lender that does not deliver such a notice within such period of ten (10) Business Days shall be deemed to have declined to further increase its Commitment). In the event that more than one Increasing Lender elects to further increase its Commitment, the Borrower and the Managing Agents shall allocate such additional amount so as to preserve, to the extent possible, the relative pro rata shares of the Increasing Lenders prior to such request. If the Increasing Lenders do not subscribe for the total unsubscribed amount, the Borrower shall have the right to arrange for one or more banks (any such bank being called an "Augmenting Lender") to extend Commitments in an aggregate amount equal to the unsubscribed amount, provided that each Augmenting Lender shall be subject to the approval of the Administrative Agent (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld). (c) If (and only if) Lenders (including Augmenting Lenders) shall have agreed to increase their Commitments or to extend new Commitments in an aggregate amount not less than $50,000,000, such increases and such new Commitments shall become effective on the date specified in the notice delivered by the Borrower pursuant to paragraph (a); provided that the Borrower and any Augmenting Lender shall deliver such Notes, opinions, certificates and other documentation as may be requested by the Administrative Agent as of such date. The Administrative Agent shall enter any modifications made to the Commitments in the Register maintained pursuant to Section 8.5(c). SECTION 2.15 OPTIONAL PREPAYMENTS. (a) The Borrower shall have the right, upon same Business Day's notice to the Administrative Agent (received by 10:00 a.m. (New York City time)) with respect to Syndicated Borrowings comprised of Base Rate Loans and at least three (3) Business Days' prior written notice to the Administrative Agent with respect to Syndicated Borrowings comprised of LIBO Rate Loans and with respect to Competitive Bid Loans, to prepay the outstanding amount of such Syndicated Borrowings or Competitive Bid Borrowing, without premium or penalty, in whole or in part together with accrued interest to the date of such prepayment on the amount prepaid; PROVIDED, that any prepayment of any Syndicated Borrowing comprised of LIBO Rate Loans - 22 - or Competitive Bid Borrowings shall be made on, and only on, the last day of an Interest Period for such Borrowing unless accompanied by any payment imposed in connection with such prepayment pursuant to Section 2.19; and PROVIDED, FURTHER, that each partial prepayment shall be in an aggregate principal amount not less than $10,000,000 and in integral multiples of $1,000,000. The Borrower shall not have the right to prepay any Negotiated Bid Loan except as agreed by the relevant Lender. (b) Each notice of prepayment shall specify the prepayment date and the principal amount of the Borrowing (or portion thereof) to be prepaid and shall be irrevocable. The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Lenders of any notice received pursuant to this Section 2.15. SECTION 2.16 INABILITY TO DETERMINE INTEREST RATE. In the event that (i) the Administrative Agent shall have determined (which determination shall be conclusive and binding upon the Borrower) that, by reason of circumstances affecting the interbank Eurodollar market, adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the LIBO Rate applicable for any requested Interest Period with respect to a Syndicated Borrowing comprised of LIBO Rate Loans requested hereunder or (ii) the Required Lenders shall have informed the Administrative Agent in writing that the LIBO Rate will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of making or maintaining its LIBO Rate Syndicated Loans during the Interest Period, the Administrative Agent shall forthwith give telecopy notice, confirmed in writing, of such determination to the Borrower and the Lenders at least one day prior to the first day of such Interest Period for such Syndicated Borrowing comprised of LIBO Rate Loans. If such notice is given, (x) any requested Syndicated Borrowing comprised of LIBO Rate Loans may be made as a Base Rate Borrowing if the Borrower wishes to make the Borrowing on such terms and so notifies the Administrative Agent; (y) any Base Rate Borrowings that were to have been Converted to Syndicated Borrowings comprised of LIBO Rate Loans shall be continued as Base Rate Borrowings and (z) any outstanding Syndicated Borrowings comprised of LIBO Rate Loans shall be Converted, on the last day of such Interest Period, to Base Rate Borrowings. Until such notice has been withdrawn by the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders, as the case may be, no further Syndicated Borrowings comprised of LIBO Rate Loans shall be made or continued as such nor shall the Borrower have the right to Convert Base Rate Borrowings to Syndicated Borrowings comprised of LIBO Rate Loans. SECTION 2.17 INCREASED COSTS. (a) In the event that (i) the introduction of or any change (including, without limitation, any change by way of imposition or increase of the Eurocurrency Reserve Requirements) in or in the interpretation of any law or regulation or (ii) the compliance with any request or directive from any central bank or other Governmental Authority (whether or not having the force of law), made subsequent to the date hereof: (x) shall subject any Lender to any tax of any kind whatsoever with respect to this Agreement, the Notes or any LIBO Rate Loan made by it, or change the basis of taxation of payments to the Lender in respect thereof (except for taxes covered by Section 2.23 and changes in the rate of tax on the overall net income of such Lender); - 23 - (y) shall impose, modify or hold applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan or similar requirement against assets held by, deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, advances, loans or other extensions of credit by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of such Lender which is not otherwise included in the determination of the LIBO Rate hereunder; or (z) shall impose on any Lender any other condition; and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost of such Lender, by an amount which the Lender reasonably deems to be material, of making, Converting into, continuing or maintaining LIBO Rate Loans or to reduce any amount receivable hereunder in respect thereof then, in any such case, the Borrower shall promptly pay to such Lender, upon its demand, any additional amounts necessary to compensate such Lender for such increased cost or reduced amount receivable. If any Lender becomes entitled to claim any additional amounts pursuant to this section, it shall promptly notify the Borrower of the event by reason of which it has become so entitled (with a copy to the Administrative Agent). A certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the calculation of any additional amounts payable pursuant to this section (PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that such certificate need not disclose information not made available to the public), submitted by any Lender to the Borrower shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. This covenant shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Notes and all other amounts payable hereunder for a period of one year. (b) In the event that any Lender shall have determined that the introduction of or any change (other than any change by way of imposition or increase of the Eurocurrency Reserve Requirements), in any law or regulation regarding capital adequacy or in the interpretation or application of or compliance by any Lender or any affiliate of a Lender with any request or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Authority made subsequent to the date hereof does or shall have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender's or such affiliate's capital as a consequence of its obligations hereunder to a level below that which such Lender or such affiliate could have achieved but for such change or compliance (taking into consideration such Lender's or such affiliate's policies with respect to capital adequacy) by an amount reasonably deemed by such Lender to be material, then from time to time, after submission by such Lender to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) of a written request therefor (which request shall set forth in reasonable detail the calculation of such additional amount; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that such request need not disclose information not made available to the public), the Borrower shall pay to such Lender such additional amount as will compensate such Lender for such reduction. (c) Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Lender shall make written demand on the Borrower for indemnification or compensation pursuant to paragraphs (a) and (b) of this Section 2.17 within thirty (30) Business Days after such Lender receives actual notice or obtains actual knowledge of the promulgation of a law, rule, order or interpretation or occurrence of another event giving rise to a claim pursuant to such paragraphs. In the event that any Lender fails to give the Borrower the - 24 - notice within the time limitation set forth in the preceding sentence, the Borrower shall have no obligation to pay such claim for indemnification or compensation accruing prior to the ninetieth (90th) day preceding such written demand. Nothing in this Agreement shall prevent any Lender from delivering successive demands for such indemnification or compensation pursuant hereto. (d) Each Lender agrees that it will use reasonable efforts to designate an alternate lending office with respect to any of its Loans affected by the matters or circumstances described in paragraphs (a) and (b) of this Section 2.17, Section 2.18 or Section 2.23 to reduce the liability of the Borrower or avoid the results provided thereunder, so long as such designation is not disadvantageous to the Lender as determined by such Lender in its sole discretion. SECTION 2.18 ILLEGALITY. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any law or regulation shall make it unlawful, or any central bank or other Governmental Authority shall assert that it is unlawful, for any Lender or its Eurodollar Lending Office to perform its obligations hereunder to make LIBO Rate Syndicated Loans or to continue to fund or maintain LIBO Rate Loans hereunder, then, on notice thereof and demand therefor by such Lender to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), (i) any obligation of such Lender to make or maintain any LIBO Rate Loans and to Convert Base Rate Loans into LIBO Rate Syndicated Loans shall terminate, (ii) all LIBO Rate Syndicated Loans then outstanding, if any, shall be Converted automatically, on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, or within such earlier period as required by law, to Base Rate Loans, (iii) the Borrower shall forthwith prepay in full all LIBO Rate Competitive Bid Loans of such Lender then outstanding, together with interest accrued thereon, and (iv) if the result any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender by an amount which such Lender reasonably deems to be material, after submission by such Lender to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) of a written request therefor (which request shall set forth in reasonable detail the calculation of such additional amount; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that such request need not disclose information not made available to the public) the Borrower shall pay to such Lender such additional amount. SECTION 2.19 INDEMNITY. The Borrower agrees to indemnify the Lenders and to hold the Lenders harmless from any actual and direct loss, cost or expense which the Lenders may sustain or incur as a consequence of (a) default by the Borrower in payment when due (at maturity, acceleration or otherwise) of the principal amount of or interest on any LIBO Rate Loan or Fixed Rate Loan, (b) default by the Borrower in making a borrowing of, Conversion into or continuation of a LIBO Rate Loan or Fixed Rate Loan after the Borrower has given a notice requesting the same in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, (c) default by the Borrower in making any prepayment after the Borrower has given a notice thereof in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement or (d) the making of a prepayment of LIBO Rate Loans or Fixed Rate Loans on a day which is not the last day of an Interest Period with respect thereto, including, without limitation, in each case, any such loss or expense arising from the reemployment of funds obtained by any Lender or from fees payable to terminate the deposits from which such funds were obtained; PROVIDED, that the foregoing indemnification shall not apply to any indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages. This - 25 - covenant shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Notes and all other amounts payable hereunder. SECTION 2.20 PRO RATA TREATMENT. The parties agree that each Syndicated Borrowing, each payment or prepayment of principal of any Syndicated Borrowing, each payment of interest on the Syndicated Loans, each payment of the Facility Fees with respect to each Lender's Commitment, each reduction of the Commitments and each refinancing of any Borrowing with a Syndicated Borrowing of any Type, shall be allocated pro rata among the Lenders in accordance with their respective Commitments (or, if such Commitments shall have expired or been terminated, in accordance with the respective principal amounts of their outstanding Syndicated Loans) after giving effect to any payment or prepayment or termination or assignment of a Lender's Commitment pursuant to this Agreement; provided that, in the event of any reallocation of Commitment percentages due to a non-ratable increase pursuant to Section 2.14, payments of any Syndicated Borrowings shall be allocated among the Lenders participating in such Borrowing in accordance with the respective principal amounts of their outstanding Loans comprising such Syndicated Borrowing. Each payment of principal of any Competitive Bid Borrowing shall be allocated pro rata among the Lenders participating in such Borrowing in accordance with the respective principal amounts of their outstanding Competitive Bid Loans comprising such Borrowing. Each payment of interest on any Competitive Bid Borrowing shall be allocated pro rata among the Lenders participating in such Borrowing in accordance with the respective amounts of accrued and unpaid interest on their outstanding Competitive Bid Loans comprising such Borrowing. Each payment of principal and interest on any Negotiated Bid Loan shall be made solely to the Lender making such Loan on the terms and conditions as shall be agreed to by the Borrower and such Lender. For purposes of determining the available Commitments of the Lenders at any time, each outstanding Competitive Bid Borrowing or Negotiated Bid Loan shall be deemed to have utilized the Commitments of the Lenders (including those Lenders which shall not have made Loans as part of such Competitive Bid Borrowing or such Negotiated Bid Loan) pro rata in accordance with such respective Commitments. Each Lender agrees that in computing such Lender's portion of any Borrowing to be made hereunder, the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion, round each Lender's percentage of such Borrowing to the next higher or lower whole dollar amount. SECTION 2.21 SHARING OF SETOFFS. Each Lender agrees that if it shall, through the exercise of a right of banker's lien, setoff or counterclaim against the Borrower, or through a secured claim under Section 506 of Title 11 of the United States Code or other security or interest arising from, or in lieu of, such secured claim, received by such Lender under any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law or otherwise, or by any other means, obtain payment (voluntary or involuntary) in respect of any Syndicated Loan or Loans as a result of which the unpaid principal portion of the Syndicated Loans, as applicable, of such Lender shall be proportionately less than the unpaid principal portion of the Syndicated Loans, as applicable, of any other Lender, it shall be deemed simultaneously to have purchased from such other Lender at face value, and shall promptly pay to such other Lender the purchase price for, a participation in the Syndicated Loans of such other Lender, so that the aggregate unpaid principal amount of the Syndicated Loans and participations in the Syndicated Loans held by each Lender shall be in the same proportion to the aggregate unpaid - 26 - principal amount of all Syndicated Loans then outstanding as the principal amount of its Syndicated Loans prior to such exercise of banker's lien, setoff or counterclaim or other event was to the principal amount of all Syndicated Loans outstanding prior to such exercise of banker's lien, setoff or counterclaim or other event; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that, if any such purchase or purchases or adjustments shall be made pursuant to this Section 2.21 and the payment giving rise thereto shall thereafter be recovered, such purchase or purchases or adjustments shall be rescinded to the extent of such recovery and the purchase price or prices or adjustment restored without interest. The Borrower expressly consents to the foregoing arrangements and agrees that any Lender holding a participation in a Syndicated Loan deemed to have been so purchased may exercise any and all rights of banker's lien, setoff or counterclaim with respect to any and all moneys owing by the Borrower to such Lender by reason thereof as fully as if such Lender had made a Syndicated Loan directly to the Borrower in the amount of such participation. SECTION 2.22 PAYMENTS. (a) The Borrower shall make each payment (including principal of or interest on any Loan or any Facility Fees or other amounts) hereunder (other than with respect to any Negotiated Bid Loan) not later than 3:00 p.m. (New York City) time on the date when due in dollars to the Administrative Agent in immediately available funds. The Borrower shall make each payment in respect of a Negotiated Bid Loan, including any such Loan denominated in a currency other than United States dollars, not later than 3:00 p.m. (local time at the place of payment) on the day when due to or for the account of the Lender making such Loan at such location as agreed by the Borrower and such Lender in connection with the making of such Negotiated Bid Loan and in such funds as are at the time customary in such location for the settlement of international transactions in such currency, or upon such other terms as such Lender and the Borrower shall agree in connection with the making thereof. (b) Whenever any payment hereunder shall become due, or otherwise would occur, on a day that is not a Business Day, such payment may be made on the next succeeding Business Day, and such extension of time shall be included in the computation of interest or Facility Fees, as applicable. (c) All computations of interest in respect of any Syndicated Loans or Competitive Bid Loans shall be made by the Lenders on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such interest is payable. (d) All computations of interest in respect of any Negotiated Bid Loan shall be on such basis as the Lender making such Loan and the Borrower shall agree in connection with the arrangement thereof, but, in the event of any dispute, shall be on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) elapsed. (e) All computations of Facility Fees shall be made by the Administrative Agent on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, for the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such Facility Fees are payable. - 27 - (f) For purposes of this Article 2, the equivalent in United States Dollars (the "Dollar Equivalent") of any Negotiated Bid Loan in a currency other than United States Dollars shall be determined using the rate therefor (the "Relevant Rate") agreed to between the Borrower and the Lender in connection with the arrangement of such Negotiated Bid Loan. SECTION 2.23 TAXES. (a) All payments made by the Borrower under this Agreement and the Notes shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for or on account of, any present or future income, stamp or other taxes (including without limitation, withholding taxes), levies, imposts, duties, charges, fees, deductions or withholdings, now or hereafter imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any Governmental Authority, excluding, in the case of the Administrative Agent, any Managing Agent or any Lender, net income taxes and franchise taxes (imposed in lieu of net income taxes) imposed on the Administrative Agent, any Managing Agent or any Lender as a result of a present or former connection between the jurisdiction of the government or taxing authority imposing such tax and the Administrative Agent, any Managing Agent or any Lender (excluding a connection arising solely from the Administrative Agent, such Managing Agent or such Lender having executed, delivered or performed its obligations or received a payment under, or enforced, this Agreement or any of the Notes) or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein (all such non-excluded taxes, levies, imposts, duties, charges, fees, deductions and withholdings being hereinafter called "Taxes"). If any Taxes are required to be withheld from any amounts payable to the Administrative Agent, any Managing Agent or any Lender hereunder or under any of the Notes, the amounts so payable to the Administrative Agent, such Managing Agent or such Lender shall be increased to the extent necessary to yield to the Administrative Agent, such Managing Agent or such Lender (after payment of all Taxes) interest or any such other amounts payable hereunder at the rates or in the amounts specified in this Agreement and the Notes. Whenever any Taxes are payable by the Borrower as promptly as possible thereafter the Borrower shall send to the Administrative Agent and the relevant Managing Agent or Lender a copy of an original official receipt received by the Borrower showing payment thereof. If the Borrower fails to pay any Taxes when due to the appropriate taxing authority or fails to remit to the Administrative Agent, any Managing Agent or any Lender the required receipts or other required documentary evidence, the Borrower shall indemnify the Administrative Agent, any such Managing Agent and any such Lender for any incremental taxes, interest or penalties that may become payable by any of them as a result of any such failure. The agreements in this Section shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Notes and all other amounts payable hereunder for a period of one year. (b) If any Lender is not incorporated under the laws of the United States of America or a state thereof, such Lender agrees that it will deliver to the Borrower (i) two duly completed copies of United States Internal Revenue Service Form 1001 or 4224 or successor applicable form, as the case may be, and (ii) an Internal Revenue Service Form W-8 or W-9 or successor applicable form. Each such Lender also agrees to deliver to the Borrower two further copies of the said Form 1001 or 4224 and Form W-8 or W-9, or successor applicable forms or other manner of certification, as the case may be, on or before the date that any such form expires or becomes obsolete or after the occurrence of any event requiring a change in the most recent form previously delivered by it to the Borrower, and such extensions or renewals thereof as may reasonably be requested by the Borrower, - 28 - unless in any such case an event (including, without limitation, any change in treaty, law or regulation) has occurred prior to the date on which any such delivery would otherwise be required which renders all such forms inapplicable or which would prevent such Lender from duly completing and delivering any such form with respect to it and such Lender so advises the Borrower. Each such Lender shall certify (i) in the case of a Form 1001 or 4224, that it is entitled to receive payments under this Agreement without deduction or withholding of any United States federal income taxes and (ii) in the case of a Form W-8 or W-9, that it is entitled to an exemption from United States backup withholding tax. SECTION 2.24 ASSIGNMENT OF COMMITMENTS UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES. In the event that any Lender shall have delivered a notice or certificate pursuant to Section 2.17 or 2.18, or the Borrower shall be required to make additional payments to any Lender under Section 2.23, the Borrower shall have the right, at its own expense, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, to require such Lender to transfer and assign without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 8.5) all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement to another financial institution selected by the Borrower with the consent of the Managing Agents (which consent will not be unreasonably withheld) which financial institution shall assume such obligations; provided that (i) no such assignment shall conflict with any law, rule or regulation or order of any Governmental Authority and (ii) the Borrower or the assignee, as the case may be, shall pay to the affected Lender in immediately available funds on the date of such termination or assignment the principal of and interest accrued to the date of payment on the Loans made by it hereunder and all other amounts accrued for its account or owed to it hereunder or under the Notes, including without limitation all amounts owing to such Lender pursuant to Section 2.19.

The obligation of each Lender to make its initial Syndicated Loan and the right of the Borrower to request the making of the initial Negotiated Bid Loan or Competitive Bid Loan are subject to the conditions precedent that the Administrative Agent shall have received on or before the earlier of the date of the initial Syndicated Loan or the making of the initial Negotiated Bid Loan or Competitive Bid Loan the following, each in form and substance satisfactory to the Lenders: (a) A duly executed counterpart of this Agreement; (b) The Notes of the Borrower, each duly executed and delivered by the Borrower; (c) A duly executed certificate of the Secretary or Assistant Secretary of the Borrower which certificate shall certify: (i) the names and true signatures of the officers of the Borrower, authorized to sign this Agreement, the Notes and the other documents contemplated hereby; (ii) the - 29 - by-laws of the Borrower; and (iii) a copy of the resolutions of the Borrower's Board of Directors, which shall be attached to such certificate and which such certificate shall state have not been amended, modified, revoked or rescinded, authorizing (a) the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the Notes and (b) the Borrowings contemplated hereunder; (d) A copy of the Certificate of Incorporation of the Borrower, certified as of a recent date by the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware; (e) A good standing certificate for the Borrower certified as of a recent date by the Secretaries of State of Delaware and Florida; (f) A favorable opinion of Sullivan & Cromwell, counsel to the Borrower, substantially in the form of EXHIBIT F-1 attached hereto, and a favorable opinion of corporate counsel to the Borrower, substantially in the form of EXHIBIT F-2 attached hereto; (g) A certificate signed by a duly authorized officer of the Borrower substantially in the form of EXHIBIT G attached hereto, stating that: (i) The representations and warranties contained in Section 4.1 hereof are true and correct on and as of the Effective Date as though made on and as of such date; (ii) To the best of such officer's knowledge, no event has occurred and is continuing which constitutes a Default or an Event of Default; and (iii) The Existing Credit Facilities have been paid in full and canceled as of the Effective Date; (h) Evidence satisfactory to the Managing Agents of the termination of the Existing Credit Facilities and repayment of any outstanding indebtedness thereunder; and (i) Payment to the Managing Agents and their Affiliates of any fees agreed to be paid by the Borrower in connection with the structuring and syndication of the Commitments.

(ii) The Properties and all operations and facilities at the Properties are in compliance with all Environmental Laws, and there is no Hazardous Materials contamination or violation of any Environmental Law which could interfere with the continued operation of any of the Properties or impair the fair saleable value of any thereof. - 32 - (iii) Neither the Borrower nor any of its Subsidiaries has received any complaint, notice of violation, alleged violation, investigation or advisory action or of potential liability or of potential responsibility regarding environmental protection matters or permit compliance with regard to the Properties, nor is the Borrower aware that any Governmental Authority is contemplating delivery to the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries of any such notice. (iv) Hazardous Materials have not been generated, treated, stored, disposed of, at, on or under any of the Properties, nor have any Hazardous Materials been transferred from the Properties to any other location.

If no successor shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after the retiring Administrative Agent gives notice of its resignation, then the retiring Administrative Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders and the Managing Agents, appoint a successor Administrative Agent which shall be a bank with an office in New York, New York, or an affiliate of any such bank, having a combined capital and surplus of at least $500,000,000 or an affiliate of any such bank. Upon the acceptance of its appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Administrative Agent, and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. The fees payable by the Borrower to a successor Administrative Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between the Borrower and such successor. After the Administrative Agent's resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article - 43 - and Section 8.4 shall continue in effect for its benefit in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as Administrative Agent. No additional managing agents or co-agents shall be appointed without the prior approval of the Managing Agents. Each Lender agrees (i) to reimburse the Administrative Agent and the Documentation Agent, on demand, in the amount of its pro rata share (determined based on the relative percentage of each Lender's Commitment to the total Commitments last in effect hereunder prior to the incurrence of such expense) of any reasonable expenses incurred for the benefit of the Lenders by the Administrative Agent and the Documentation Agent, including counsel fees and compensation of agents and employees paid for services rendered on behalf of the Lenders, which shall not have been reimbursed by the Borrower and (ii) to indemnify and hold harmless the Administrative Agent, the Documentation Agent and each Managing Agent and any of their respective directors, officers, employees or agents, on demand, in the amount of such pro rata shares, from and against any and all liabilities, taxes, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against any of them in their capacity as the Administrative Agent, the Documentation Agent or a Managing Agent, as applicable, or any of them in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any action taken or omitted by it or any of them under this Agreement, to the extent the same shall not have been reimbursed by the Borrower; provided that no Lender shall be liable to the Administrative Agent, the Documentation Agent or any Managing Agent for any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Administrative Agent, such Managing Agent or any of their directors, officers, employees or agents. Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Managing Agents, the Co-Agents, the Syndication Agent or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement. Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Managing Agents, the Co-Agents, the Syndication Agent or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement, any related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder. Each of the Lenders hereby designates the Documentation Agent and the Managing Agents as their agents and acknowledges that each shall have no duties under this Agreement whatsoever except as explicitly set forth herein and that each shall be entitled to all protections afforded the Administrative Agent under this Article 7. None of the Lenders identified herein as a "Co-Agent" shall have any right, power, obligation, liability, responsibility or duty under this Agreement other than those applicable to all Lenders as such. The Syndication Agent shall have no right, power, obligation, liability, responsibility or duty under the Agreement whatsoever and shall not be deemed to be a "Lender" hereunder. - 44 - ARTICLE 8 MISCELLANEOUS ------------- SECTION 8.1 WAIVERS AND AMENDMENTS. (a) No failure or delay of the Administrative Agent, any other Agent or any Lender in exercising any power or right hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such a right or power, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power. The rights and remedies of the Administrative Agent, the other Agents and the Lenders hereunder are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies which they would otherwise have. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement or consent to any departure by the Borrower therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by paragraph (b) below, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given. No notice or demand on the Borrower in any case shall entitle the Borrower to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances. (b) Neither this Agreement nor any provision hereof may be waived, amended or modified except pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the Borrower and the Required Lenders; provided, however, that no such agreement shall (i) decrease the principal amount of, or extend the maturity of or any scheduled principal payment date or date for the payment of any interest on any Loan, or waive or excuse any such payment or any part thereof, or decrease the rate of interest on any Loan, without the prior written consent of each Lender affected thereby, (ii) increase or extend the Commitment or decrease the Facility Fees of any Lender without the prior written consent of such Lender or (iii) amend or modify the provisions of Section 8.4, Section 8.7, the provisions of this Section or the definition of "Required Lenders" or Article 3 without the prior written consent of each Lender; PROVIDED FURTHER that no such agreement shall amend, modify or otherwise affect the rights or duties of the Administrative Agent, the Documentation Agent or the Managing Agents hereunder without the prior written consent of the Managing Agents, the Documentation Agent or the Administrative Agent, as applicable. Each Lender shall be bound by any waiver, amendment or modification authorized by this Section. SECTION 8.2 NOTICES.

SECTION 8.3 SURVIVAL OF AGREEMENT. All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made by the Borrower herein and in the certificates or other instruments prepared or delivered in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement shall be considered to have been relied upon by the Lenders and shall survive the making by the Lenders of the Loans, regardless of any investigations made by the Lenders or on their behalf, and shall continue in full force and effect as long as any Obligation is outstanding and unpaid and so long as the Commitments have not been terminated. SECTION 8.4 PAYMENT OF EXPENSES AND TAXES; INDEMNITY. (a) The Borrower agrees (i) to pay or reimburse each of the Administrative Agent, the Documentation Agent and the Lenders for all its reasonable costs and expenses incurred in connection with the enforcement or preservation of any rights under this Agreement, the Notes, and any other documents prepared in connection herewith or therewith, including, without limitation, reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel to the Administrative Agent, the Documentation Agent and the Lenders or the costs of services allocated to in-house counsel to the Administrative Agent, the Documentation Agent and the Lenders, and (ii) to pay, indemnify, and hold each of the Administrative Agent, the Documentation Agent and the Lenders harmless from any and all recording and filing fees and any and all actual and direct liabilities with respect to, or resulting from any delay in paying stamp, excise and other taxes, if any, which may be payable or determined to be payable in connection with the execution and delivery of, or consummation or administration of any of the transactions contemplated by, or any amendment, supplement or modification of, or any waiver or consent under or in respect of, this Agreement, the Notes, and any such other documents.

(c) The provisions of this Section 8.4 shall remain operative and in full force and effect regardless of the expiration of the term of this Agreement, the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of any of the Loans, the invalidity or unenforceability of any term or provision of this Agreement, or any investigation made by or on behalf of the Managing Agents, the Administrative Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Syndication Agent or any Lender. All amounts due under this Section 8.4 shall be payable on written demand therefor. SECTION 8.5 ASSIGNMENTS AND PARTICIPATIONS. (a) Each Lender may assign to one or more assignees all or a portion of its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment and the Loans at the time owing to it); provided, however, that (i) except in the case of an assignment to a Lender or an affiliate of a Lender, the Borrower and the Administrative Agent must give their prior written consent to such assignment (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; provided that no consent of the Borrower shall be required if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing), (ii) each such assignment shall be of a constant percentage of all the assigning Lender's rights and obligations under the Commitments and Loans, (iii) the amount of the Commitment of the assigning Lender subject to each such assignment (determined as of the date the Assignment and Acceptance with respect to such assignment is delivered to the Administrative Agent) shall not be less than $5,000,000 and the amount of the Commitment of such Lender remaining after such assignment shall not be less than $5,000,000 or shall be zero, and (iv) parties to each such assignment shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent an Assignment and Acceptance and a processing and recordation fee of $3,000. Upon acceptance and recording pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section 8.5, from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Acceptance, which effective date shall be at least five (5) Business Days after the execution thereof, (A) the assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Acceptance, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement and (B) the assigning Lender - 47 - thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Acceptance, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Acceptance covering all or the remaining portion of an assigning Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto (but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.17, 2.18, 2.19, 2.23 and 8.4, as well as to any Facility Fees accrued for its account hereunder and not yet paid)). Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Lender assigning its rights and obligations under this Agreement may retain any Competitive Bid Loans or Negotiated Bid Loans made by it outstanding at such time, and in such case shall retain its rights hereunder in respect of any Loans so retained until such Loans have been repaid in full in accordance with this Agreement. In connection with any assignment pursuant hereto, the transferor Lender, the Administrative Agent and the Borrower shall make appropriate arrangements to deliver new Notes from the Borrower to the transferor Lender and the transferee to evidence their relative Commitments. (b) By executing and delivering an Assignment and Acceptance, the assigning Lender thereunder and the assignee thereunder shall be deemed to confirm to and agree with each other and the other parties hereto as follows: (i) such assigning Lender warrants that it is the legal and beneficial owner of the interest being assigned thereby free and clear of any adverse claim and that its Commitment, and the outstanding balances of its Loans thereunder, in each case without giving effect to assignments thereof which have not become effective, are as set forth in such Assignment and Acceptance, (ii) except as set forth in (i) above, such assigning Lender makes no representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility with respect to any statements, warranties or representations made in or in connection with this Agreement, or the execution, legality, validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of this Agreement or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto or the financial condition of the Borrower or any Subsidiary or the performance or observance by the Borrower or any Subsidiary of any of its obligations under this Agreement or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto; (iii) such assignee represents and warrants that it is legally authorized to enter into such Assignment and Acceptance; (iv) such assignee confirms that it has received a copy of this Agreement, together with copies of the most recent financial statements delivered pursuant hereto and such other documents and information as it has deemed appropriate to make its own credit analysis and decision to enter into such Assignment and Acceptance; (v) such assignee will independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Managing Agents, such assigning Lender or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement; (vi) such assignee appoints and authorizes the Administrative Agent to take such action as agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers under this Agreement as are delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms hereof, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto; and (vii) such assignee agrees that it will perform in accordance with their terms all the obligations which by the terms of this Agreement are required to be performed by it as a Lender. (c) The Administrative Agent shall maintain at one of its offices in The City of New York a copy of each Assignment and Acceptance delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders, and the Commitment of, and principal amount of the Loans - 48 - owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the "Register"). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error and the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders may treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower and any Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. (d) Upon its receipt of a duly completed Assignment and Acceptance executed by an assigning Lender and an assignee, the processing and recordation fee referred to in paragraph (a) above and, if required, the written consent of the Borrower and the Administrative Agent to such assignment, the Administrative Agent shall (i) accept such Assignment and Acceptance, (ii) record the information contained therein in the Register and (iii) give prompt notice thereof to the Lenders and the Borrower. (e) Each Lender may, in the ordinary course of its commercial banking business and in accordance with applicable law, at any time sell to one or more banks or other entities ("Participants") participating interests in any Loans owing to such Lender, any Note held by such Lender, the Commitment of such Lender or any other interest of such Lender hereunder. In the event of any such sale by any Lender of participating interests to a Participant, such Lender's obligations under this Agreement to the Borrower shall remain unchanged, the Lender shall remain solely responsible for the performance thereof, the Lender shall remain the holder of any such Note for all purposes under this Agreement, and the Borrower shall continue to deal solely and directly with the Lender in connection with the Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement. The Borrower agrees that if amounts outstanding under this Agreement or any Note are due or unpaid, or shall have been declared or shall have become due and payable upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, each Participant shall be deemed to have the right of setoff in respect of its participating interest in amounts owing under this Agreement or any Note to the same extent as if the amount of its participating interest were owing directly to it as a Lender under this Agreement or any Note. The Borrower also agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.17, 2.18, 2.19, 2.23 and 8.4 with respect to its participation in the Commitment or Commitments and the Loans outstanding from time to time; PROVIDED, that no Participant shall be entitled to receive any greater amount pursuant to such sections than the Lender which sold it the participation would have been entitled to receive in respect of the amount of the participation transferred by such Lender to such participant had no such transfer occurred. (f) The Borrower authorizes each Lender to disclose to any Participant or prospective Participant or assignee or prospective assignee any and all financial and other information in such Lender's possession concerning the Borrower, its Subsidiaries and its Affiliates which has been delivered to such Lender by or on behalf of the Borrower pursuant to this Agreement or which has been delivered to such Lender by or on behalf of the Borrower in connection with such Lender's credit evaluation of the Borrower, its Subsidiaries and its Affiliates prior to becoming a party to this Agreement. - 49 - (g) If, pursuant to this section, any interest in this Agreement or a Note is transferred to any assignee or Participant which is organized under the laws of any jurisdiction other than the United States or any state thereof, the Lender making such assignment or selling such participation shall cause such assignee or Participant, as the case may be, concurrently with the effectiveness of such transfer, (i) to represent to such Lender (for the benefit of such Lender and the Borrower) that under applicable law and treaties no taxes will be required to be withheld by the Borrower (or such Lender in the case of a Participant) with respect to any payments to be made to such assignee Participant in respect of the Loans, (ii) to furnish to such Lender either U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form 4224 or U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form 1001 (wherein such assignee or Participant claims entitlement to complete exemption from U.S. federal withholding tax on all interest payments hereunder) and (iii) to agree (for the benefit of such Lender and the Borrower) to provide such Lender (in the case of a Participant) or the Borrower (in the case of an assignee) a new Form 4224 or Form 1001 upon the expiration or obsolescence of any previously delivered form and comparable statements in accordance with applicable U.S. laws and regulations and amendments, duly executed and completed by such Participant or assignee, and to comply from time to time with all applicable U.S. laws and regulations with regard to such withholding tax exemption (with the express understanding that an assigning Lender shall have no responsibility for the compliance of the assignee with any such agreement following the effective date of the assignment). (h) Nothing herein shall prohibit any Lender from pledging or assigning any Note to any Federal Reserve Bank in accordance with applicable law. SECTION 8.6 RIGHT OF SET-OFF. Upon (i) the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default and (ii) the declaration of any Loan to be due and payable pursuant to the provisions of Section 6.1, each Lender is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, without notice to the Borrower (any such notice being expressly waived by the Borrower) and to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final but not including custodial or fiduciary deposits) at any time held and other indebtedness at any time owing by any Lender or any affiliate of any Lender to or for the credit or the account of the Borrower against any and all of the obligations of the Borrower now or hereafter existing under this Agreement and the Notes held by such Lender, irrespective of whether or not the Administrative Agent or any Lender shall have made any demand under this Agreement or such Notes and although such obligations may be unmatured. Each Lender agrees promptly to notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent after any such set-off and application made by such Lender, provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application. The rights of the Lenders under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including, without limitation, other rights of set-off) which the Lenders or the Administrative Agent may have. SECTION 8.7 BINDING EFFECT. This Agreement shall become effective as of the date first above written and when the conditions set forth in Section 3.1 shall have been satisfied, and thereafter shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Borrower, the Lenders and their respective successors and assigns, except that the Borrower shall not have the right to assign or transfer any of - 50 - its rights or obligations hereunder or any interest herein without the prior written consent of each of the Lenders. SECTION 8.8 APPLICABLE LAW. THIS AGREEMENT AND THE NOTES SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK. SECTION 8.9 INTEREST LIMITATION. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if at any time the applicable interest rate, together with all fees and charges which are treated as interest under applicable law (collectively the "Charges"), as provided for herein or in any other document executed in connection herewith, or otherwise contracted for, charged, received, taken or reserved by any Lender, shall exceed the maximum lawful rate (the "Maximum Rate") which may be contracted for, charged, taken, received or reserved by such Lender in accordance with applicable law, the rate of interest payable on the Loans held by such Lender, together with all Charges payable to such Lender, shall be limited to the Maximum Rate. SECTION 8.10 HEADINGS. Section headings in this Agreement are included herein for convenience of reference only and shall not constitute a part of this Agreement for any other purposes. SECTION 8.11 EXECUTION IN COUNTERPARTS. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement. SECTION 8.12 SEVERABILITY. Any provision of this Agreement which is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions hereof, and any such prohibition or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction. SECTION 8.13 INTEGRATION. This Agreement represents the entire agreement of the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Managing Agents, the Co-Agents and the Lenders with respect to the subject matter hereof, and there are no promises, undertakings, representations or warranties by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, the Documentation Agent, the Managing Agents, the Co-Agents or the Lenders relative to the subject matter hereof not expressly set forth or referred to herein or in the Notes. SECTION 8.14 SUBMISSION TO JURISDICTION; WAIVERS. The Borrower hereby irrevocably and unconditionally: (a) submits for itself and its property in any legal action or proceeding relating to this Agreement, or for recognition and enforcement of any judgment in respect thereof, to the non- - 51 - exclusive general jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York, the courts of the United States of America for the Southern District of New York, and appellate courts from any thereof; (b) consents that any such action or proceeding may be brought in such courts and waives any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the venue of any such action or proceeding in any such court or that such action or proceeding was brought in an inconvenient court and agrees not to plead or claim the same; (c) agrees that service of process in any such action or proceeding may be effected by mailing a copy thereof by registered or certified mail (or any substantially similar form of mail), postage prepaid, to the Borrower at its address set forth in Section 8.2 or at such other address of which the Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall have been notified pursuant thereto; (d) agrees that nothing herein shall affect the right to effect service of process in any other manner permitted by law or shall limit the right to sue in any other jurisdiction; and (e) waives, to the maximum extent not prohibited by law, any right it may have to claim or recover in any legal action or proceeding referred to in this section any special, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages. SECTION 8.15 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. Each of the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, the Managing Agents and the Lenders hereby waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any right it may have to a trial by jury in respect of any litigation (whether sounding in tort, contract or otherwise) directly or indirectly arising out of, under or in connection with this Agreement. Each party hereto (a) certifies that no representative, agent or attorney of any other party has represented, expressly or otherwise, that such other party would not, in the event of litigation, seek to enforce the foregoing waiver and (b) acknowledges that it and the other parties hereto have been induced to enter into this Agreement, as applicable, by, among other things, the mutual waivers and certifications in this Section 8.15. SECTION 8.16 TELEPHONE NOTICE.
