Each Credit Party irrevocably waives any and all defenses, including any “discharge for value” (under which a creditor might otherwise claim a right to retain funds mistakenly paid by a third party in respect of a debt owed by another) or similar defense to its obligation to return any Rescindable Amount. The Administrative Agent shall inform each Credit Party promptly upon
3
DM3\7533330.7

4
DM3\7533330.7



        (d)    The Loan Parties hereby represent and warrant as follows:

    (i)    Each Loan Party has taken all necessary corporate or other organizational action to authorize the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement;

    (ii)    This Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by the Loan Parties and constitutes each of the Loan Parties’ legal, valid and binding obligations, enforceable against such Loan Party in accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by (A) applicable Debtor Relief Laws and (B) general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding at law or in equity);

    (iii)    No consent, approval, authorization or order of, or filing, registration or qualification with, any court or governmental authority or third party is required in connection with the execution, delivery or performance by any Loan Party of this Agreement, except for any filings that the Company or any of its Subsidiaries may be required to make with the Securities and Exchange Commission or pursuant to applicable stock exchange rules, which the Company expects to timely file following execution of this Agreement; and

(iv)    Immediately after giving effect to this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby, (A) the representations and warranties of the Loan Parties set forth in Article VI of the Credit Agreement and in each other Loan Document are true and correct in all material respects (and in all respects if any such representation or warranty is already qualified by materiality or reference to Material Adverse Effect) as of the date hereof with the same effect as if made on and as of the date hereof, except to the extent such representations and warranties expressly relate solely to an earlier date, in which case they shall be true and correct in all material respects (and in all respects if any such representation or warranty is already qualified by materiality or reference to Material Adverse Effect) as of such earlier date (and except that the representations and warranties contained in Sections 6.05(a) and (b) of the Credit Agreement shall be deemed to refer to the most recent statements furnished pursuant to Sections 7.01(a) and (b), respectively, of the Credit Agreement), and (B) no event has occurred and is continuing which constitutes a Default or an Event of Default.

        (e)    Subject to Section 11.21 of the Credit Agreement, this Agreement may be in the form of an Electronic Record and may be executed using Electronic Signatures (including facsimile and .pdf) and shall be considered an original, and shall have the same legal effect, validity and enforceability as a paper record. This Agreement may be executed in as many counterparts as necessary or convenient, including both paper and electronic counterparts, but all such counterparts are one and the same Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the authorization under this Section 4(e) may include use or acceptance by the Administrative Agent and the Lenders of a manually signed paper Document which has been converted into electronic form (such as scanned into PDF format), or an electronically signed Document converted into another format, for transmission, delivery and/or retention.

        (f)    If any provision of this Agreement is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, (i) the legality, validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not
5
DM3\7533330.7


be affected or impaired thereby and (ii) the parties shall endeavor in good faith negotiations to replace the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provisions with valid provisions the economic effect of which comes as close as possible to that of the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provisions. The invalidity of a provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.

(g)    THIS AGREEMENT AND ANY CLAIM, CONTROVERSY, DISPUTE OR CAUSE OF ACTION (WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR OTHERWISE) BASED UPON, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT AND THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK; PROVIDED, THAT, THE PARTIES HERETO SHALL RETAIN ALL RIGHTS ARISING UNDER FEDERAL LAW.

(h)    The terms of Sections 11.15 and 11.16 of the Credit Agreement with respect to submission to jurisdiction, waiver of venue and waiver of right to trial by jury trial are incorporated herein by reference, mutatis mutandis, and the parties hereto agree to such terms.
