To the extent that a Revolving Loan is made under the Canadian Commitment, it will be made by the Canadian Lender and, to the extent that a Revolving Loan is made under the US Commitment, it will be made by the US affiliate or branch of such Canadian Lender. Accordingly, (i) such Canadian Lender (and not the US affiliate or branch) will be the entity that shares the risk described in subsection (b) of this Section 2.3 with respect to the Canadian Swing Loans that are part of the Canadian Commitment, and (i) the US affiliate or branch of such Canadian Lender will be the entity that shares the risk described in subsections (b) and (c) of Section 2.2 hereof with respect to the Letters of Credit and US Swing Loans that are part of the US Commitment.

The facility fee shall be payable in arrears, on July 31, 2007 and on each Regularly Scheduled Payment Date thereafter, and on the last day of the Commitment Period. In order to minimize any possible adverse tax consequences, Borrowers shall have the option to designate which portion of the facility fees is due and payable from US Borrower and which portion is due and payable from Canadian Borrower. In no event

5


 

shall Canadian Borrower be required to make payments under this subsection on behalf of US Borrower, or with respect to the US Commitment.
     6. Amendment to Reduction of Commitment. Section 2.9(d) of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended to delete subpart (iii) therefrom and to insert in place thereof the following:
     (iii) Generally. If Borrowers reduce in whole the Commitment of the Lenders, on the effective date of such reduction (Borrowers having prepaid in full the unpaid principal balance, if any, of the Loans, together with all interest and facility and other fees accrued and unpaid), all of the Notes, if Notes have been issued, shall be delivered to Agent marked “Canceled” and Agent shall redeliver such Notes to Borrowers. Any partial reduction in the Total Commitment Amount shall be effective during the remainder of the Commitment Period and shall result in a corresponding reduction of the Ultimate Amount. Notwithstanding anything in this Section to the contrary, at any time that there shall be a permanent reduction in the US Commitment or the Canadian Commitment pursuant to subparts (i) and (ii) above, the Dormant US Commitment and the Dormant Canadian Commitment (as applicable) shall be automatically decreased so that (A) the amount of the Dormant US Commitment does not exceed the amount of the resulting Canadian Commitment, and (B) the amount of the Dormant Canadian Commitment does not exceed the amount of the resulting US Commitment.
     7. Amendment to Amount and Terms of Credit. Article II of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended to add the following new Section 2.15 at the end thereto:
     Section 2.15. Reallocation of US and Canadian Revolving Commitments.
     (a) Increase in US Commitment and Decrease in Canadian Commitment. So long as no Default or Event of Default exists, Borrowers shall have the right, with three Business Days prior written notice to Agent and Canadian Funding Agent, to increase the Maximum US Revolving Amount up to the Ultimate Amount. Each such increase shall:
     (i) be in an amount of at least Ten Million Dollars ($10,000,000), increased by increments of Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) (but in no event greater than the Dormant Total US Amount effective immediately prior to such increase);
     (ii) result in a decrease of the Maximum Canadian Revolving Amount by an amount equal to such increase by (A) first, proportionally decreasing the Applicable Maximum Canadian Revolving Amount of each Canadian Lender that is not a Combined Lender, (B) second, if applicable, proportionally (based on their respective Dormant US Revolving Credit Commitments) decreasing the Applicable Maximum Canadian Revolving Amount of each Unbalanced Combined Lender, and (C) third, if applicable, proportionally decreasing the Applicable Maximum Canadian Revolving Amount of each Balanced Combined Lender;

6


 

     (iii) (1) first, proportionally increase the Applicable Maximum US Revolving Amount of each US Lender that is not a Combined Lender, (2) second, if applicable, proportionally (based on their respective Dormant US Revolving Credit Commitments) increase the Applicable Maximum US Revolving Amount of each Unbalanced Combined Lender, and (3) third, if applicable, proportionally increase the Applicable Maximum US Revolving Amount of each Balanced Combined Lender; and
     (iv) proportionately (y) increase such Canadian Lender’s Dormant Canadian Commitment, and (z) decrease such US Lender’s Dormant US Commitment.
     (b) Increase in Canadian Commitment and Decrease in US Commitment. So long as no Default or Event of Default exists, Borrowers shall have the right, with three Business Days prior written notice to Agent and Canadian Funding Agent, to increase the Maximum Canadian Revolving Amount up to the Ultimate Amount. Each such increase shall:
     (i) be in an amount of at least Ten Million Dollars ($10,000,000), increased by increments of Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) (but in no event greater than the Dormant Total Canadian Amount effective immediately prior to such increase);

     (iii) (1) first, proportionally increase the Applicable Maximum Canadian Revolving Amount of each Canadian Lender that is a Balanced Combined Lender, (2) second, if applicable, proportionally (based on their respective Dormant Canadian Revolving Credit Commitment) increase the Applicable Maximum Canadian Revolving Amount of each Unbalanced Combined Lender, and (3) third, if applicable, proportionally increase the Applicable Maximum Canadian Revolving Amount of each Canadian Lender that is not a Combined Lender; and
     (iv) proportionately (y) increase such US Lender’s Dormant US Commitment, and (z) decrease such Canadian Lender’s Dormant Canadian Commitment.

7


 

     (c) Generally. In connection with any increase set forth in subparts (a) and (b) above, (i) Schedule 1 hereto shall be automatically amended, without further action, to reflect the result of any such increase (provided that Agent shall provide to Borrowers and each Lender a revised Schedule 1 to this Agreement, including revised Applicable Commitment Percentages for each of the Lenders, if appropriate, which Schedule 1 may be provided at the time of such increase or thereafter, and shall be effective as of the date of such increase); and (ii) Borrowers shall execute and deliver to Agent and the Lenders such replacement or additional Revolving Credit Notes as shall be required by Agent (to replace or supplement the Notes previously requested by the Combined Lenders). On the date of each such increase, the Lenders shall make adjustments among themselves with respect to the Revolving Loans then outstanding and amounts of principal, interest, facility fees, and other amounts paid or payable with respect thereto as shall be necessary, in the opinion of Agent, in order to reallocate among such Lenders such outstanding amounts, based on the revised Applicable Commitment Percentages. Borrowers hereby agree to indemnify and to hold each Lender harmless for any amount payable under Article III hereof as a result of a prepayment of a Fixed Rate Loan pursuant to a reallocation of Commitments under this Section 2.15.
     8. Amendment to Amendments, Consents. Section 10.3 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended to delete subpart (a) therefrom, and to insert in place thereof the following:
     (a) except with respect to increases pursuant to Section 2.15 hereof, any increase in the Commitment, the US Commitment or the Canadian Commitment,
     9. Amendment to Schedules. The Credit Agreement is hereby amended to delete Schedule 1 (Commitment of Lenders) therefrom, and to insert in place thereof, a new Schedule 1 in the form of Schedule 1 attached hereto.
     10. Closing Deliveries. Concurrently with the execution of this Amendment,

     (iii) pay all legal fees and expenses of Agent in connection with this Amendment.
     (b) Agent and Canadian Funding Agent shall execute an Amended and Restated Lender Agreement and, in connection therewith, each Lender authorizes Agent and Canadian Funding Agent to execute such agreement on its behalf, and agrees to be bound thereby;

8

The notice address for Bank of Montreal, Chicago Branch set forth on the signature pages of this Amendment shall be the notice address of Bank of Montreal, Chicago Branch for purposes of Section 10.4 of the Credit Agreement.

Each Borrower, by signing below, hereby waives and releases Agent and each of the Lenders, and their respective directors, officers, employees, attorneys, affiliates and subsidiaries, from any and all claims, offsets, defenses and counterclaims of which such Borrower is aware, such waiver and release being with full knowledge and understanding of the circumstances and effect thereof and after having consulted legal counsel with respect thereto.
