The failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such recordation, shall not affect any Obligations in respect of any applicable Loans. In the event of any inconsistency between the Register and any Lender’s records, the recordations in the Register shall govern.
(b)    Register. The Agent shall maintain at Agent’s Office a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders and principal amounts (and stated interest) of the Loans owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”).

The entries in the Register shall be conclusive and binding on the Loan Parties, the Agent and each Lender, absent manifest error; provided, failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such recordation, shall not affect the Loan Parties’ Obligations in respect of any Loan.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, any Lender may make any of its Loans to be made by it hereunder by wire transfer of immediately available funds directly to one or more deposit accounts of the type described in Section 2.02(a). Nothing in this Agreement or the other Loan Documents shall be deemed to require the Agent to advance funds on behalf of any Lender or to relieve any Lender from its obligations to fulfill its Commitments hereunder or to prejudice any rights that the Agent or the Borrower may have against any Lender as a result of any default by such Lender hereunder.
(b)    Presumption of Funding by the Lenders. Unless the Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available to the Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing, the Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date in accordance with Section 2.05(a) and may, but shall not be obligated to, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrower a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing available to the Agent, then the applicable Lender and the Borrower severally agree to pay to the Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to the Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Agent, at (i) in the case of such Lender, the rate determined by the Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation or (ii) in the case of the Borrower, the interest rate applicable to the Loans. If such Lender pays such amount to the Agent, then such amount shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing.

Each category of DIP Collateral set forth above shall have the meaning set forth in the UCC (to the extent such term is defined in the UCC), it being the intention of Debtors that the description of the DIP Collateral set forth above be construed to include the broadest possible range of assets.
Section 2.08    No Discharge; Survival of Claims. Except as otherwise contemplated by the RSA, until Payment in Full, each of the Borrower and the Guarantors agrees that (a) the Obligations hereunder shall not be discharged by the entry of an order confirming a plan of reorganization or liquidation in any Chapter 11 Case (and each of the Borrower and the Guarantors, pursuant to Section 1141(d)(4) of the Bankruptcy Code, hereby waives any such discharge) and (b) the DIP Claims and the DIP Liens granted to the Agent pursuant to the Orders and described in Section 2.07(d) shall not be affected in any manner by the entry of an order confirming a plan of reorganization or liquidation in any Chapter 11 Case.
Section 2.09    Grant of Security; Security for Obligations; Debtors Remain Liable.
(a)    Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, and subject to the terms of the Orders, in no event shall the DIP Collateral include (nor shall any defined term used therein include), and no Debtor shall be deemed to have granted a security interest in, any of such Debtor’s rights or interests in any Excluded Property.
(b)    This Agreement secures, and the DIP Collateral is collateral security for, the prompt payment in full when due and owing, whether at stated maturity, by required prepayment, declaration, acceleration, demand or otherwise, of all Obligations. It is the intention of the parties that if the Agent shall fail to have a perfected Lien in any particular property or assets of any Loan Party for any reason whatsoever, the provisions of this Agreement and/or the other Loan Documents, together with the Orders, all financing statements and other public financing relating to Liens filed or recorded by the Agent against the Loan Parties and, with respect to all Loan Parties, the Orders and any other order entered by the Bankruptcy Court to secure the Obligations, would be sufficient to create a perfected DIP Lien in any property or assets that such Loan Party may receive upon the sale, lease, license, exchange, transfer or disposition of such particular property or assets, then all such “proceeds” of such particular property or assets shall be included in the DIP Collateral.
(c)    Anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, (a) each Debtor shall remain liable under any contracts and agreements included in the DIP Collateral, to the extent set forth therein, to perform all of its duties and obligations thereunder to the same extent as if this Agreement had not been executed, (b) the exercise by the Agent of any of its rights hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall not release any Debtor from any of its duties or obligations under the contracts and agreements included in the DIP Collateral unless the Agent has expressly in writing assumed such duties and obligations and released the Debtors from such duties and obligations, and (c) none of the Secured Parties shall have any obligation or liability under any contracts, licenses, and agreements included in the DIP Collateral by reason of this Agreement, nor shall any Secured Party be obligated to perform any of the obligations or duties of any Debtor thereunder or to take any action to collect or enforce any claim for payment assigned hereunder unless any such Secured Party has expressly in writing assumed such duties and obligations and released the Debtors from such duties and obligations.

26





Section 3.01    Repayment of the Loans. Subject to the next sentence, the Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay to the Agent for the ratable account of each Lender the then unpaid principal amount of, and unpaid and accrued interest on, each Loan of such Lender made to the Borrower on the DIP Termination Date, in cash without further application to or order of the Bankruptcy Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence or anything else to the contrary in this Article III, (a) the Borrower’s repayment obligations hereunder (including with respect to principal, interest, fees and expenses) shall be subject to the Bankruptcy Plan and (other than with respect to Obligations arising under the Agent Fee Letter) the payment subordination, equity conversion and turnover provisions in the Orders (including paragraphs 6(f), 6(g) and 6(h)) thereof) and (b) on the Effective Date, each Lender shall receive in full satisfaction of the Obligations owing to it (other than as described in the following proviso) certain non-cash consideration in the form of common equity in the reorganized Loan Parties (or an entity wholly owned by a Loan Party or directly owning all or substantially all of the assets of or equity in a Loan Party, in each case pursuant to the Bankruptcy Plan) in accordance with, and pursuant to, the Bankruptcy Plan (the “Equity Conversion”); provided that, for the avoidance of doubt, (i) accrued but unpaid expenses of the Agent and the Lenders may be paid in cash as contemplated by (and, with respect to Tema, as permitted by) the Bankruptcy Plan and (ii) accrued but unpaid interest (including interest paid in kind) payable to the Lenders and the Upfront Fees (as defined in the Fee Letter) payable to the entities designated as recipients of Upfront Fees in the Fee Letter and accrued, in each case, may be paid in cash to the extent permitted by the Bankruptcy Plan (with any portion of interest or Upfront Fees not permitted to be paid in cash on the Effective Date being deemed discharged or otherwise extinguished).
Section 3.02    Interest; Fees.
(a)    Interest. The Loans shall at all times bear interest at a rate equal to 8.00% per annum (the “Applicable Rate”) (as such amount may be increased pursuant to Section 3.02) (“Interest”). Interest on the Loans shall be automatically paid in kind by adding the amount of such interest payment to the principal amount of the Loans on such Interest Payment Date and shall thereafter bear Interest as provided under this clause (a); provided that any such accrued Interest that was paid-in-kind or otherwise is accrued and unpaid under this clause (a) shall be paid in cash on the Effective Date to the extent that (i) the Secured Notes Interest Payment (as defined in the Bankruptcy Plan) shall have been paid in full in cash and (ii) the sum of (A) unrestricted cash and Cash Equivalents of the Loan Parties (which shall include cash and Cash Equivalents subject to a Lien in favor of the secured parties under the Amended Revolving Credit Agreement) and (B) availability under the conforming tranche of the revolving credit facility to be documented pursuant to the Amended Revolving Credit Agreement is greater than or equal to $20,000,000 as of the Effective Date (after giving effect to (x) the payment of any portion of such Interest that is to be paid in accordance with this proviso (together with payment of any portion of the Upfront Fees then due and payable to the entities designated as recipients thereof in the Fee Letter on the Effective Date pursuant to the Fee Letter that is to be paid on such date) and (y) the consummation of the restructuring transactions contemplated by the RSA (other than payments of any amounts subordinated to the payment of the Interest pursuant to the terms of the RSA)). Any portion of the Interest that is not permitted to be paid in cash on the Effective Date pursuant to the foregoing sentence shall be deemed discharged or otherwise extinguished on the Effective Date.
(b)    Interest Payment Dates. Subject to Section 3.02(a) above, interest on each Loan shall be due and payable in kind on each Interest Payment Date to the Lenders of record in the Register on such Interest Payment Date. All interest payable hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, unless such computation would exceed the Highest Lawful Rate, in which case interest shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days in a leap year), and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).
(c)    Default Interest. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, and if the Requisite Lenders so elect, the principal amount of all Loans outstanding and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, any due and unpaid interest payments on the Loans or any fees or other amounts due and owing hereunder shall from the date of occurrence of such Event of Default bear interest at a rate that is two percent (2.0%) per annum in excess of the interest rate otherwise payable hereunder with respect to the Loans (without giving effect to this Section 3.02(c)) (which election may be revoked by the Requisite Lenders notwithstanding any provision of Section 12.02(b) requiring the consent of “each Lender that would be affected thereby” for reductions of interest rates on the Loans) and shall be payable in the same manner as other interest payments pursuant to Section 3.02(a).

27





Payment or acceptance of the increased rates of interest provided for in this Section 3.02(c) is not a permitted alternative to timely payment and shall not constitute a waiver of any Event of Default or otherwise prejudice or limit any rights or remedies of the Agent or any Lender.
(d)    Agent Fee. The Borrower will pay to the Agent for its own account, a fee as set forth in the Agent Fee Letter.
(e)    Calculations. The Agent shall as soon as practicable (but in any event no later than three (3) Business Days prior to any Interest Payment Date or the date of any other amount payable under this Section 3.02) notify the Borrower and the Lenders of the effective date and the amount of each Interest, fee or other payment under this Section 3.02. Each determination of an interest rate, interest payment amount or fee payment amount by the Agent pursuant to any provision of this Agreement shall be conclusive and binding on the Borrower and the Lenders in the absence of manifest error. Concurrent with each notice delivered pursuant to this Section 3.02(e), the Agent shall deliver to the Borrower and each Lender a statement showing the quotations used by the Agent in determining any interest rate, if applicable, and the calculations related to any interest payment amount or fee payment amount.
(f)    Other Fees. The Borrower agrees to pay directly to each Lender the fees set forth in the Fee Letter.
Section 3.03    Voluntary Prepayments. The Borrower shall be prohibited from making any voluntary prepayments of the Loans or voluntarily terminating the Commitments hereunder other than pursuant to the Equity Conversion or as permitted by the Orders.
Section 3.04    [Reserved]
Section 3.05    Application of Payments. Subject to the Orders and Section 2.07(a), any payment of any Loan made in Cash in compliance with Sections 3.01 or 3.03 shall be applied as follows:
(a)    first, to payment or reimbursement of that portion of the Obligations constituting fees, expenses and indemnities payable to the Agent in its capacity as such;
(b)    second, pro rata to payment or reimbursement of that portion of the Obligations constituting fees, expenses and indemnities payable to the Lenders and the other Indemnitees listed under Section 12.03 under the Loan Documents;
(c)    third, pro rata to payment of accrued Interest (including interest at the Default Rate, if any) on the Loans;
(d)    fourth, [reserved];
(e)    fifth, pro rata to payment of principal outstanding on the Loans which have not yet been reimbursed by or on behalf of the Borrower at such time;
(f)    sixth, pro rata to any other Obligations; and
(g)    seventh, any excess, after all of the Obligations shall have been Paid in Full in Cash, shall be paid to the Borrower or as otherwise required by any Governmental Requirement.
Section 3.06    General Provisions Regarding Payments. Subject to the Orders and Sections 2.07(a), 3.01 and 3.03:
(a)    Except payments made in accordance with Section 3.01 and Section 3.02, all payments by the Borrower of principal, interest, fees and other Obligations shall be made in Dollars in same day funds without recoupment, setoff, counterclaim or other defense, and delivered to the Agent not later than 12:00 p.m. (New York,

28





New York time) on the date due to the Agent’s Account for the account of the Lenders; funds received by the Agent after that time on such due date shall be deemed to have been paid by the Borrower on the next Business Day.
(b)    All prepayments in respect of the principal amount of any Loan shall be accompanied by payment of accrued interest on the principal amount being repaid or prepaid.
(c)    The Agent shall promptly distribute to each Lender at such address as such Lender shall indicate in writing, such Lender’s applicable Pro Rata Share of all payments and prepayments of principal and interest due hereunder, together with all other amounts due thereto, including all fees payable with respect thereto, to the extent received by the Agent.
(d)    Whenever any payment to be made hereunder shall be stated to be due on a day that is not a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension of time shall be included in the computation of the payment of interest hereunder.
(e)    The Agent shall deem any payment by or on behalf of the Borrower hereunder that is not made in same day funds at or prior to 12:00 p.m. (New York, New York time) to be a non-conforming payment. Any such payment shall not be deemed to have been received by the Agent until the later of (i) the time such funds become available funds, and (ii) the next Business Day. Interest and fees shall continue to accrue on any principal as to which a non-conforming payment is made until such funds become available funds (but in no event less than the period from the date of such payment to the next succeeding Business Day) at the applicable rate determined pursuant to Section 3.02(a) from the date such amount was due and payable until the date such amount is paid in full.
(f)    If an Event of Default shall have occurred and not otherwise been waived, all payments or proceeds received by the Agent hereunder in respect of any of the Obligations shall be applied first, to payment or reimbursement of that portion of the Obligations constituting fees, expenses and indemnities payable to the Agent (including any costs and expenses related to foreclosure or realization upon, or protecting, DIP Collateral) in its capacity as such, second, pro rata to payment or reimbursement of that portion of the Obligations constituting fees, expenses and indemnities payable to the Lenders and the other Indemnitees listed under Section 12.03 under the Loan Documents, third, pro rata to payment of accrued Interest (including interest at the Default Rate, if any) on the Loans, fourth, [reserved], fifth, pro rata to payment of principal outstanding on the Loans which have not yet been reimbursed by or on behalf of the Borrower at such time, sixth, pro rata to any other Obligations, and seventh, any excess, after all of the Obligations shall have been Paid in Full in cash, shall be paid to the Borrower or as otherwise required by any Governmental Requirement.
ARTICLE IV    
Payments; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Set‑offs
Section 4.01    Payments Generally; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Set‑offs. Subject to the Orders and Sections 2.07(a), 3.01 and 3.03:
(a)    Payments by the Borrower. The Borrower shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder (whether of principal, interest or fees, or of amounts payable under Section 5.01, Section 5.03 or otherwise) prior to 11:00 a.m. (New York, New York time) on the date when due, in immediately available funds, without defense, deduction, recoupment, set‑off or counterclaim. Fees, once paid, shall be fully earned and shall not be refundable under any circumstances. Any amounts received after such time on any date shall be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. All such payments shall be made to the Agent at its offices specified in Section 12.01, except that payments pursuant to Section 5.01, Section 5.03 and Section 12.03 shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto. The Agent shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof. If any payment hereunder shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be payable for the period of such extension. All payments hereunder shall be made in Dollars.

29





(b)    Application of Insufficient Payments. If at any time insufficient funds are received by and available to the Agent to pay fully all amounts of principal, interest and fees then due hereunder, such funds shall be applied (i) first, towards payment of interest and fees then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of interest and fees then due to such parties, and (ii) second, towards payment of principal then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of principal then due to such parties.
(c)    Ratable Sharing. The Lenders hereby agree among themselves that, except as otherwise provided in the Security Instruments with respect to amounts realized from the exercise of rights with respect to Liens on the DIP Collateral, if any of them shall, whether by voluntary payment (other than a voluntary prepayment of Loans purchased and applied in accordance with the terms hereof), through the exercise of any right of set off or banker’s lien, by counterclaim or cross action or by the enforcement of any right under the Loan Documents or otherwise, or as adequate protection of a deposit treated as cash collateral under the Bankruptcy Code, receive payment or reduction of a proportion of the aggregate amount of principal, interest, fees and other amounts then due and owing to such Lender hereunder or under the other Loan Documents (collectively, the “Aggregate Amounts Due” to such Lender) which is greater than the proportion received by any other Lender in respect of the Aggregate Amounts Due to such other Lender, then the Lender receiving such proportionately greater payment shall (a) notify Agent and each other Lender of the receipt of such payment and (b) apply a portion of such payment to purchase Loans (which it shall be deemed to have purchased from each seller of a Loan simultaneously upon the receipt by such seller of its portion of such payment) in the ratable Aggregate Amounts Due to the other Lenders so that all such recoveries of Aggregate Amounts Due shall be shared by all Lenders in proportion to the Aggregate Amounts Due to them; provided, that if all or part of such proportionately greater payment received by such purchasing Lender is thereafter recovered from such Lender upon the bankruptcy or reorganization of the Borrower or otherwise, those purchases to that extent shall be rescinded and the purchase prices paid for such Loans shall be returned to such purchasing Lender ratably to the extent of such recovery, but without interest. The Borrower expressly consents to the foregoing arrangement and agrees that any Lender may exercise any and all rights of banker’s lien, set off or counterclaim with respect to any and all monies owing by the Borrower to that Lender with respect thereto as fully as if that Lender were owed the amount of the Loan made by that Lender.
Section 4.02    Certain Deductions by the Agent. If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.05(a) or Section 4.01 then the Agent shall (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), apply any amounts thereafter received by the Agent for the account of such lender to satisfy such Lender’s obligations under such Sections until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid. If at any time prior to the acceleration or maturity of the Loans, the Agent shall receive any payment in respect of principal of a Loan while one or more Defaulting Lenders shall be party to this Agreement, the Agent shall apply such payments first to the Borrowing(s) for which such Defaulting Lender(s) shall have failed to fund its pro rata share until such time as such Borrowing(s) are paid in full or each Lender (including each Defaulting Lender) is owed its Pro Rata Share of all Loans then outstanding. After acceleration or maturity of the Loans, all principal will be paid ratably as provided in Section 10.02(c).
Section 4.03    Defaulting Lenders.
(a)    Defaulting Lender Adjustments. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then, until such time as such Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable law:
(i)    Waivers and Amendments. Such Defaulting Lender’s right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent with respect to this Agreement shall be restricted as set forth in the definition of Requisite Lenders.
(ii)    Defaulting Lender Waterfall. Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Article X or otherwise) or received by the Agent from a Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 12.08 shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Agent (and subject to the stated conditions) as follows: first, to the payment of any amounts owing

30





by such Defaulting Lender to the Agent hereunder; second, as the Borrower may request in writing (so long as no Default or Event of Default exists), to the funding of any Loan in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Agent; third, if so determined by the Borrower, to be held in a deposit account and released pro rata in order to satisfy such Defaulting Lender’s potential future funding obligations with respect to Loans under this Agreement; fourth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement as delivered to the Agent together with written instructions from the Borrower as to the required application of such funds in order to comply with such order, to the extent necessary; fifth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Borrower as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Borrower against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement as delivered to the Agent together with written instructions from the Borrower as to the required application of such funds in order to comply with such order, to the extent necessary; and sixth, to such Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction in an order directed to the Agent; provided that if (x) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Loans in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share and (y) such Loans were made at a time when the conditions set forth in Article VI were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Loans of all non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Loans of such Defaulting Lender until such time as all Loans are held by the Lenders pro rata in accordance with the Commitments. Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender shall be deemed paid to and redirected by such Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto.
(b)    Defaulting Lender Cure. If the Borrower and the Agent agree in writing that a Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, the Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein, that Lender will, to the extent applicable, purchase at par that portion of outstanding Loans of the other Lenders or take such actions as the Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Loans to be held pro rata by the Lenders in accordance with the commitments, whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender.
ARTICLE V    
Increased Costs; Taxes
Section 5.01    Increased Costs. Subject to the provisions of Section 5.03 (which shall be controlling with respect to the matters covered thereby), in the event that any Lender shall determine (which determination shall, absent manifest error, be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto) that any Governmental Requirement, or any change therein or in the interpretation, administration or application thereof (including the introduction of any new law, treaty or governmental rule, regulation or order), or any determination of a court or Governmental Authority, in each case that becomes effective after the date hereof, or compliance by such Lender with any guideline, request or directive issued or made after the date hereof by any central bank or other Governmental Authority or quasi-Governmental Authority (whether or not having the force of law): (a) subjects such Lender (or its Applicable Office) to any additional Tax (other than any Indemnified Tax or any Excluded Tax) with respect to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents or any of its obligations hereunder or thereunder or any payments to such Lender (or its Applicable Office) of principal, interest, fees or any other amount payable hereunder or its deposits, reserves or capital attributable thereto; (b) imposes, modifies or holds applicable any reserve (including any marginal, emergency, supplemental, special or other reserve), special deposit, compulsory loan, FDIC insurance or similar requirement against assets held by, or deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, or advances or loans by, or other credit extended

31





by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of such Lender; or (c) imposes any other condition (other than with respect to a Tax matter) on or affecting such Lender (or its Applicable Office) or its obligations hereunder; and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender of agreeing to purchase, purchasing or maintaining Loans hereunder or to reduce any amount received or receivable by such Lender (or its Applicable Office) with respect thereto; then, in any such case, Borrower shall promptly pay to such Lender, upon receipt of the statement referred to in the next sentence, such additional amount or amounts (in the form of an increased rate of, or a different method of calculating, interest or otherwise as such Lender shall reasonably determine) as may be necessary to compensate such Lender for any such increased cost or reduction in amounts received or receivable hereunder. Such Lender shall deliver to Borrower (with a copy to the Agent) a written statement, setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for calculating the additional amounts owed to such Lender under this Section 5.01, which statement shall be conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto absent manifest error.
Section 5.02    [Reserved].
Section 5.03    Taxes.
(a)    Payments Free of Taxes. All sums payable by or on account of any Loan Party hereunder and under the other Loan Documents shall (except to the extent otherwise required by law) be paid free and clear of, and without any deduction or withholding on account of, any Taxes.
(b)    Withholding of Taxes. If any Loan Party or the Agent is required by law to make any deduction or withholding for or on account of any Tax from any sum paid or payable under any of the Loan Documents: (i) any Loan Party shall notify the Agent of any such requirement or any change in any such requirement as soon as the Borrower becomes aware of it; (ii) any Loan Party or the Agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall pay (or cause to be paid) any such Tax to the relevant Governmental Authority before the date on which penalties attach thereto; (iii) if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, the sum payable by such Loan Party in respect of which the relevant deduction or withholding is required shall be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that after any such deduction or withholding (including such deductions and withholding applicable to additional sums payable under this Section), Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, and each of their Tax Related Persons receives on the due date a net sum equal to what it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made; and (iv) within thirty (30) days after making any such deduction or withholding, the Loan Party shall deliver to the Agent evidence satisfactory to the other affected parties of such deduction or withholding and of the proper remittance thereof to the relevant taxing or other Governmental Authority; provided, that for the avoidance of doubt, no such additional amount shall be required to be paid to any Lender or Agent under clause (iii) above for, and Indemnified Taxes shall not include, any of the following Taxes, (A) any U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed pursuant to a Law in effect and applicable as of the date hereof (in the case of each Lender listed on the signature pages hereof) or as of the effective date of the Assignment Agreement pursuant to which such Lender became a Lender (in the case of each other Lender) or on the date the Lender changes its Applicable Office, except, in each case, to the extent that, pursuant to Section 5.03, amounts with respect to such U.S. federal withholding Taxes were payable (1) to such Lender’s assignor (including each of their Tax Related Persons) immediately before such Lender becomes a party hereto or (2) such Lender immediately before such Lender changed its Applicable Office, (B) any Tax on the Overall Net Income of the Lender or its Tax Related Persons, (C) any U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed under FATCA or (D) any Tax attributable to the Lender’s failure to comply with Section 5.03(e) (all such amounts described in clause (A), (B), (C) and (D), “Excluded Taxes”).
(c)    Other Taxes. In addition, the Loan Parties shall pay all Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authorities in accordance with applicable law. The Loan Parties shall deliver to the Agent official receipts or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Requisite Lenders in respect of any Taxes or Other Taxes payable hereunder promptly after payment of such Taxes or Other Taxes.
(d)    Indemnification by the Loan Parties. The Loan Parties shall indemnify Agent and each Lender, within ten (10) days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes paid or incurred by the Agent or such Lender or their respective Tax Related Persons, as the case may be, relating to, arising out of, or in connection with any Loan Document or any payment or transaction contemplated hereby or thereby, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority, and all

32





reasonable expenses and costs arising therefrom or with respect thereto; provided, however, that the Loan Parties shall not be required to indemnify Agent and Lenders in duplication of Indemnified Taxes covered by Section 5.03(b) or Section 5.03(c). Notwithstanding the foregoing, any indemnification under this Section 5.03(d) shall be made on an after-Tax basis (including any Tax on the Overall Net Income), such that after all required deductions and payments of all Taxes and any expenses and costs, each of the Agent, the Lenders and each of their respective Tax Related Persons receives and retains an amount equal to the sum it would have received and retained had it not paid or incurred or been subject to such Taxes or expenses and costs. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the applicable Loan Party by a Lender (with a copy to the Agent), or by the Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(e)    Administrative Requirements; Forms Provision. Each Lender that is a U.S. Person for U.S. federal income tax purposes shall deliver to the Borrower and the Agent, on or prior to the Closing Date (in the case of each Lender listed on the signature pages hereof on the Closing Date) or on or prior to the date of the Assignment Agreement pursuant to which it becomes a Lender (in the case of each other Lender), and at such other times as may be necessary in the determination of the Borrower or Agent (each in the reasonable exercise of its discretion), two executed copies of Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) Form W-9 establishing an exemption from a U.S. federal backup withholding Tax. Each Lender that is not a U.S. Person for U.S. federal income tax purposes (a “Non-U.S. Lender”) shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Agent and the Borrower, on or prior to the Closing Date (in the case of each Lender listed on the signature pages hereof on the Closing Date) or on or prior to the date of the Assignment Agreement or joinder agreement pursuant to which it becomes a Lender (in the case of each other Lender), and at such other times as may be necessary in the determination of the Borrower or Agent (each in the reasonable exercise of its discretion), whichever of the following described in clauses (i) through (iv) below is applicable, accurately completed and in a manner reasonably acceptable to the Borrower:

(ii)    two executed copies of IRS Form W-8ECI;
(iii)    in the case of a Non-U.S. Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (1) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit H-1 to the effect that such Non-U.S. Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10 ”percent shareholder” of the Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (2) two executed copies of IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E; or
(iv)    to the extent a Non-U.S. Lender is not the beneficial owner of a Loan, two executed copies of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN, IRS Form W-8BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit H-2 or Exhibit H-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Non-U.S. Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Non-U.S. Lender are eligible to claim the portfolio interest exemption, such Non-U.S. Lender shall provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit H-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner.
Each Lender required to deliver any forms, certificates or other evidence with respect to U.S. federal income tax withholding matters pursuant to this Section 5.03(e) hereby agrees, from time to time after the initial delivery by such

33





Lender of such forms, certificates or other evidence, whenever a lapse in time or change in circumstances renders such forms certificates or other evidence obsolete or inaccurate in any material respect, that such Lender shall promptly deliver to the Agent and the Borrower two new executed copies of IRS Form W-8BEN, IRS Form W-8BEN-E, IRS Form W-8IMY or IRS Form W-8ECI (or any successor form(s) of any of the foregoing), and as applicable, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate properly completed and duly executed by such Lender, and such other documentation required under the Code and reasonably requested by the Borrower to confirm or establish that such Lender is not subject to deduction or withholding of U.S. federal income Tax with respect to payments to such Lender under the Loan Documents or is subject to deduction or withholding at a reduced rate, or notify the Agent and the Borrower of its inability to deliver any such forms, certificates or other evidence. Nothing in this Section 5.03 shall be construed to require a Lender (or any Tax Related Person of any Lender) to provide any forms or documentation that, in the Lender’s reasonable judgment, would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.
On or before the date on which Agent (and any successor replacement Agent) becomes the Agent, it shall deliver to the Borrower two executed copies of IRS Form W-9 establishing an exemption from U.S. federal backup withholding Tax. The Agent (or, upon assignment or replacement, any assignee or successor) agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Borrower in writing of its inability to do so.
(f)    If a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Borrower and the Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Agent as may be necessary for the Borrower and the Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this Section 5.03(f), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

After giving full effect to Liens permitted by Section 9.03, the Loan Party specified as the owner owns the net interests in production attributable to the Hydrocarbon Interests as reflected in the most recently delivered Reserve Report under the Prepetition Note Purchase Agreement, and except as otherwise provided by statute, regulation or the standard and customary provisions of any applicable joint operating agreement, the ownership of such Properties shall not in any material respect obligate the Loan Party to bear the costs and expenses relating to the maintenance, development and operations of each such Property in an amount in excess of the working interest of each Property set

(b)    All material leases and agreements necessary for the conduct of the business of the Loan Parties are valid and subsisting, in full force and effect, and there exists no default or event or circumstance which with the giving of notice or the passage of time or both would give rise to a default under any such lease or leases, which could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

The Loan Parties either own or have valid licenses or other rights to use all databases, geological data, geophysical data, engineering data, seismic data, maps, interpretations and other technical information used in their businesses as presently conducted, subject to the limitations contained in the agreements governing the use of the same, which limitations are customary for companies engaged in the business of the exploration and production of Hydrocarbons, with such exceptions as could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

Specifically in connection with the foregoing, except for those as could not be reasonably expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, (i) no Oil and Gas Property of the Loan Parties is subject to having allowable production reduced below the full and regular allowable (including the maximum permissible tolerance) because of any overproduction (whether or not the same was permissible at the time) and (ii) none of the wells comprising a part of the Oil and Gas Properties (or Properties unitized therewith) of the Loan Parties is deviated from the vertical more than the maximum permitted by Governmental Requirements, and such wells are bottomed under and are producing from, and the well bores are wholly within, the Oil and Gas Properties (or in the case of wells located on Properties unitized therewith, such unitized Properties) of the Loan Parties. All pipelines, wells, gas processing plants, platforms and other material improvements, fixtures and equipment owned in whole or in part by the Loan Parties that are necessary to conduct normal operations are being maintained in a state adequate to conduct normal operations, and with respect to such of the foregoing which are operated by the Loan Parties, in a manner consistent with the Loan Parties’ past practices (other than those the failure of which to maintain in accordance with this Section 7.18 could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect).
Section 7.19    Gas Imbalances; Prepayments. Except as set forth on Schedule 7.19, on a net basis there are no gas imbalances take or pay or other prepayments which would require any Loan Party to deliver Hydrocarbons produced from their Oil and Gas Properties at some future time without then or thereafter receiving full payment therefor exceeding two percent (2.0%) of the aggregate volumes of natural gas (on an Mcf basis) listed in the Initial Reserve Report.
Section 7.20    Marketing of Production. Except for contracts listed and in effect on the date hereof on Schedule 7.20, and thereafter either disclosed in writing to the Agent or included in the most recently delivered Reserve Report delivered under the Prepetition Note Purchase Agreement, (a) the Loan Parties are receiving a price for all production sold thereunder which is computed substantially in accordance with the terms of the relevant contract and are not having deliveries curtailed substantially below the subject Property’s delivery capacity and (b) no material agreements exist which are not cancelable on 90 days’ notice or less without penalty or detriment for the sale of production from the Loan Parties’ Hydrocarbons (including calls on or other rights to purchase, production, whether

Section 7.22    Swap Agreements and Eligible Contract Participant. Schedule 7.22 sets forth a true and complete list of all Swap Agreements of the Loan Parties as of the date hereof. After the date hereof, each report required to be delivered by the Borrower pursuant to Section 8.01(d) sets forth a true and complete list of all Swap Agreements of the Loan Parties, the material terms thereof (including the type, term, effective date, termination date and notional amounts or volumes), the estimated net mark to market value thereof, all credit support agreements relating thereto (including any margin required or supplied, but excluding the Security Instruments) and the counterparty to each such agreement.

ARTICLE XI    
The Agent
Section 11.01    Appointment; Powers. U.S. Bank National Association is hereby appointed the Agent hereunder and under the other Loan Documents and each Lender hereby authorizes U.S. Bank National Association, in such capacity, to act as its agent (including as collateral agent) in accordance with the terms hereof and the other Loan Documents. The Agent hereby agrees to act upon the express conditions contained herein and the other Loan Documents, as applicable. The provisions of this Section 11.01 are solely for the benefit of the Agent and the Lenders and no Loan Party shall have any rights as a primary or third party beneficiary of any of the provisions thereof, except as expressly set forth herein. In performing its functions and duties hereunder, the Agent shall act solely as an agent of the Lenders and does not assume and shall not be deemed to have assumed any obligation towards or relationship of agency or trust with or for any Loan Party or any Affiliate thereof.
Section 11.02    Duties and Obligations of the Agent. Each Lender irrevocably authorizes the Agent to take such action on such Lender’s behalf and to exercise such powers, rights and remedies and perform such duties hereunder and under the other Loan Documents as are specifically delegated or granted to the Agent by the terms hereof and thereof, together with such actions, powers, rights and remedies as are reasonably incidental thereto. The Agent shall have only those duties and responsibilities that are expressly specified herein and the other Loan Documents. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Agent shall not have or be deemed to have, by reason hereof or any of the other Loan Documents, a fiduciary relationship in respect of any Lender; and nothing herein or any of the other Loan Documents, expressed or implied, is intended to or shall be so construed as to impose upon the Agent any obligations in respect hereof or any of the other Loan Documents except as expressly set forth herein or therein.
Section 11.03    General Immunity.
(a)    No Responsibility for Certain Matters. The Agent shall not be responsible to any Lender for the execution, effectiveness, genuineness, validity, enforceability, collectability or sufficiency hereof or any other Loan Document or for any representations, warranties, recitals or statements made herein or therein or made in any written or oral statements or in any financial or other statements, instruments, reports or certificates or any other documents furnished or made by the Agent to the Lenders or by or on behalf of any Loan Party to the Agent or any Lender in connection with the Loan Documents and the transactions contemplated thereby or for the financial condition or business affairs of any Loan Party or any other Person liable for the payment of any Obligations, nor shall Agent be required to ascertain or inquire as to the performance or observance of any of the terms, conditions, provisions, covenants or agreements contained in any of the Loan Documents or as to the use of the proceeds of the Loans or as to the existence or possible existence of any Event of Default or Default or to make any disclosures with respect to the foregoing. The Agent shall not be responsible for the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Article VI or elsewhere in any Loan Document, other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to the Agent. The Agent will not be required to take any action that is contrary to applicable law or any provision of this Agreement or any Loan Document. Anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the Agent shall not have any liability arising from confirmations of the amount of outstanding Loans or the component amounts thereof.
(b)    Exculpatory Provisions. Subject to clause (b)(ii) hereof further limiting the liability of the Agent, neither the Agent nor any of its officers, partners, directors, employees or agents shall be liable to the Lenders for any action taken or omitted by the Agent under or in connection with any of the Loan Documents, except to the extent caused by the Agent’s gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final, nonappealable order. The Agent shall be entitled to refrain from any act or the taking of any action (including the failure to take an action) in connection herewith or any of the other Loan Documents or from the exercise of any power, discretion or authority vested in it hereunder or thereunder, except powers and authority expressly contemplated hereby or thereby, unless and until the Agent shall have received written instructions in respect thereof from Requisite

63





Lenders (or the Lenders as may be required to give such instructions under Section 12.02) or in accordance with the applicable Security Instrument, and, upon receipt of such instructions from Requisite Lenders (or the Lenders, as the case may be), or in accordance with the other applicable Security Instrument, as the case may be, the Agent shall act or (where so instructed) refrain from acting, or to exercise such power, discretion or authority, in accordance with such instructions. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, (i) Agent shall be entitled to rely, and shall be fully protected in relying, upon any communication, instrument or document believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed or sent by the proper Person or Persons, and shall be entitled to rely and shall be protected and free from liability in relying on opinions and judgments of attorneys (who may be attorneys for the Loan Parties), accountants, experts and other professional advisors selected by it; and (ii) no Lender shall have any right of action whatsoever against Agent as a result of the Agent acting or (where so instructed) refraining from acting hereunder or any of the other Loan Documents in accordance with the instructions of Requisite Lenders (or the Lenders as may be required to give such instructions under Section 12.02) or in accordance with the applicable Security Instrument. The Agent shall be fully justified in failing or refusing to take any action under this Agreement or any other Loan Document unless Agent shall first receive such advice or concurrence of the Lenders (as required by this Agreement) and until such instructions are received, the Agent shall act, or refrain from acting, as it deems advisable. If the Agent so requests, it shall first be indemnified to its reasonable satisfaction by the Lenders against any and all liability and expense that may be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action. The Agent shall in all cases be fully protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, under this Agreement or any other Loan Document in accordance with a request or consent of the Requisite Lenders and such request and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto shall be binding upon all of the Lenders. No provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby shall require Agent to: (i) expend or risk its own funds or provide indemnities in the performance of any of its duties hereunder or the exercise of any of its rights or power or (ii) otherwise incur any financial liability in the performance of its duties or the exercise of any of its rights or powers. The Agent shall not be responsible for (i) perfecting, maintaining, monitoring, preserving or protecting the security interest or lien granted under this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, (ii) the filing, re-filing, recording, re- recording or continuing of any document, financing statement, mortgage, assignment, notice, instrument of further assurance or other instrument in any public office at any time or times, or (iii) providing, maintaining, monitoring or preserving insurance on or the payment of taxes with respect to any of the DIP Collateral. The actions described in items (i) through (iii) of the immediately preceding sentence shall be the responsibility of the Lenders and the Loan Parties. The Agent shall not be required to qualify in any jurisdiction in which it is not presently qualified to perform its obligations as the Agent. The Agent has accepted and is bound by the Loan Documents executed by the Agent as of the date of this Agreement and, as directed in writing by the Requisite Lenders, the Agent shall execute additional Loan Documents delivered to it after the date of this Agreement; provided, however, that such additional Loan Documents do not adversely affect the rights, privileges, benefits and immunities of the Agent. The Agent will not otherwise be bound by, or be held obligated by, the provisions of any loan agreement, indenture or other agreement governing the Obligations (other than this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to which such Agent is a party). No written direction given to the Agent by the Requisite Lenders or any Loan Party that in the sole judgment of the Agent imposes, purports to impose or might reasonably be expected to impose upon Agent any obligation or liability not set forth in or arising under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents will be binding upon Agent unless Agent elects, at its sole option, to accept such direction. The Agent shall not be responsible or liable for any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents arising out of or caused, directly or indirectly, by circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of God; earthquakes; fire; flood; terrorism; wars and other military disturbances; sabotage; epidemics; riots; business interruptions; loss or malfunctions of utilities, computer (hardware or software) or communication services; accidents; labor disputes; acts of civil or military authority and governmental action. Beyond the exercise of reasonable care in the custody of the DIP Collateral in the possession or control of the Agent or its bailee, the Agent will not have any duty as to any other DIP Collateral or any income thereon or as to preservation of rights against prior parties or any other rights pertaining thereto. The Agent will be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody of the DIP Collateral in its possession if the DIP Collateral is accorded treatment substantially equal to that which it accords its own property, and Agent will not be liable or responsible for any loss or diminution in the value of any of the DIP Collateral by reason of the act or omission of any carrier, forwarding agency or other agent or bailee selected by the Agent in good faith. The Agent will not be responsible for the existence, genuineness or value of any of the DIP Collateral or for the validity, perfection, priority or enforceability of the DIP Liens in any of the DIP Collateral, whether impaired by operation of law or by reason of any action or omission to act

64





on its part hereunder, except to the extent such action or omission constitutes gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the Agent, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final, nonappealable order, for the validity or sufficiency of the DIP Collateral or any agreement or assignment contained therein, for the validity of the title of any grantor to the DIP Collateral, for insuring the DIP Collateral or for the payment of taxes, charges, assessments or DIP Liens upon the DIP Collateral or otherwise as to the maintenance of the DIP Collateral. The Agent hereby disclaims any representation or warranty to the present and future Lenders of the Obligations concerning the perfection of the DIP Liens granted hereunder or in the value of any of the DIP Collateral. In the event that Agent is required to acquire title to an asset for any reason, or take any managerial action of any kind in regard thereto, in order to carry out any fiduciary or trust obligation for the benefit of another, which in Agent’s sole discretion may cause Agent to be considered an “owner or operator” under any Environmental Laws or otherwise cause Agent to incur, or be exposed to, any environmental liability or any liability under any other federal, state or local law, the Agent reserves the right, instead of taking such action, either to resign as the Agent or to arrange for the transfer of the title or control of the asset to a court appointed receiver. As between the Borrower and the Agent, or with respect to any matters related to this agreement, the Borrower agrees that the Agent should not be liable to any person for any environmental liability or any environmental claims or contribution actions under any federal, state or local law, rule or regulation by reason of the Agent’s actions and conduct as authorized, empowered and directed hereunder or relating to any kind of Release or threatened Release of any Hazardous Materials into the environment. Each Lender authorizes and directs Agent to enter into this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to which it is a party. Each Lender agrees that any action taken by the Agent or Requisite Lenders in accordance with the terms of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents and the exercise by the Agent or Requisite Lenders of their respective powers set forth therein or herein, together with such other powers that are reasonably incidental thereto, shall be binding upon all of the Lenders.
(c)    Notice of Default. The Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge or notice of the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default, except with respect to Events of Default in the payment of principal, interest and fees required to be paid to the Agent for the account of the Lenders, unless Agent shall have received written notice from a Lender or the Borrower in accordance with the notice requirements of Section 12.01 herein referring to this Agreement, describing such Default or Event of Default and stating that such notice is a “notice of default.” Agent will notify the Lenders of its receipt of any such notice, the Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such Default or Event of Default as it shall deem advisable or in the best interest of the Lenders.
Section 11.04    Action by the Agent. The Agent shall have no duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated hereby or by the other Loan Documents that the Agent is required to exercise in writing as directed by the Requisite Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 12.02) and in all cases the Agent shall be fully justified in failing or refusing to act hereunder or under any other Loan Documents unless it shall (a) receive written instructions from the Requisite Lenders or the Lenders, as applicable, (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 12.02) specifying the action to be taken and (b) be indemnified to its satisfaction by the Lenders against any and all liability and expenses which may be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action. The instructions as aforesaid and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto by the Agent shall be binding on all of the Lenders. If a Default has occurred and is continuing, then the Agent shall take such action with respect to such Default as shall be directed by the Requisite Lenders in the written instructions (with indemnities) described in this Section 11.04 provided that, unless and until the Agent shall have received such directions, the Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such Default as it shall deem advisable in the best interests of the Lenders. In no event, however, shall the Agent be required to take any action which, in its opinion, or the opinion of its counsel, exposes the Agent to liability or which is contrary to this Agreement, the Loan Documents or applicable law, including, for the avoidance of doubt, any action that may be in violation of the automatic stay under any Debtor Relief Law. If a Default has occurred and is continuing, no Agent shall have any obligation to perform any act in respect thereof. The Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it with the consent or at the request of the Requisite Lenders or the Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 12.02), and otherwise the Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it hereunder or under any other Loan Document or under any other document or instrument referred to or

65





provided for herein or therein or in connection herewith or therewith INCLUDING ITS OWN ORDINARY NEGLIGENCE, except for its own gross negligence or willful misconduct.

The Agent may be removed as the Agent at the request of the Requisite Lenders. Upon any such notice of resignation or removal, Requisite Lenders shall have the right, to appoint a successor Agent. If no successor shall have been so appointed by the Requisite Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within thirty (30) days after the retiring Agent gives notice of its resignation, then the retiring Agent’s resignation shall nevertheless thereupon become effective and the Requisite Lenders shall perform all of the duties of the Agent, as applicable, hereunder until such time, if any, as the Requisite Lenders appoint a successor Agent as provided for above. In such case, the Requisite Lenders shall appoint one Person to act as the Agent for purposes of any communications with the Borrower, and until the Borrower shall have been notified in writing of such Person and such Person’s notice address as provided for in Section 12.01, the Borrower shall be entitled to give and receive communications to/from the resigning Agent. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as the Agent hereunder by a successor Agent and the payment of the outstanding fees and expenses of the resigning or removed Agent, that successor Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring or removed Agent and the retiring or removed Agent shall promptly (i) transfer to such successor Agent all sums and other items of DIP Collateral held under the Security Instruments, together with all records and other documents necessary or appropriate in connection with the performance of the duties of the successor Agent under the Loan Documents, and (ii) execute and deliver to such successor Agent such amendments to financing statements, and take such other actions, as may be reasonably requested in connection with the assignment to such successor Agent of the security interests created under the Security Instruments (the reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of which shall be borne by the Borrower), whereupon such retiring or removed Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. After any retiring Agent’s resignation or any Agent’s removal hereunder as Agent, the provisions of this Section 11.06 shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was the Agent hereunder.
(b)    The Agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers under this Agreement or under any other Loan Document by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by the Agent and any such sub-agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or through their respective Affiliates. The Agent shall not be responsible for the acts or omissions of its sub-agents so long as they are appointed with due care. The exculpatory, indemnification and other provisions of Section 11.03 shall apply to any Affiliates of the Agent and shall apply to their respective activities in connection with the syndication of the Loans made hereby. All of the rights, benefits and privileges (including the exculpatory and indemnification provisions) of Section 12.11(a) shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Affiliates of any such sub-agent, and shall apply to their respective activities as sub-agent.

The Agent is expressly authorized to execute any documents or instruments or take other actions necessary to (i) release any DIP Lien (x) encumbering any item of DIP Collateral that is the subject of a sale or other disposition of assets permitted hereby or (y) with respect to which release the Requisite Lenders (or the Lenders as may be required to give such consent under Section 12.02) have consented to, or (ii) release any Guarantor from the guarantee pursuant to the Guaranty Agreement with respect to (x) any Person that no longer constitutes a Subsidiary as a result of a transaction permitted hereby or (y) which release the Requisite Lenders (or such other Lenders as may be required to give such consent under Section 12.02) have consented to.

66





(b)    Right to Realize on Collateral and Enforce Guaranty. Anything contained in any of the Loan Documents to the contrary notwithstanding, the Borrower, the Agent and each Lender hereby agree that (i) no Lender shall have any right individually to realize upon any of the DIP Collateral or to enforce any guaranty or exercise any other remedy provided under the Loan Documents (other than the right of set-off), it being understood and agreed that all powers, rights and remedies hereunder may be exercised solely by the Agent (acting at the written direction of the Requisite Lenders), on behalf of the Lenders in accordance with the terms hereof and all powers, rights and remedies under this Agreement and the Security Instruments may be exercised solely by the Agent (acting at the written direction of the Requisite Lenders), and (ii) in the event of a foreclosure by the Agent on any of the DIP Collateral pursuant to a public or private sale, the Agent or its nominee may be the purchaser of any or all of such DIP Collateral at any such sale and Agent, as the Agent for and representative of the Lenders (but not any Lender or the Lenders in its or their respective individual capacities unless the Requisite Lenders shall otherwise agree in writing) shall be entitled, for the purpose of bidding and making settlement or payment of the purchase price for all or any portion of the DIP Collateral sold at any such public sale, to use and apply any of the Obligations arising under the Loan Documents as a credit on account of the purchase price for any collateral payable by the Agent at such sale.

70





IMPOSED WITHOUT FAULT ON ANY ONE OR MORE OF THE INDEMNITEES INCLUDING ORDINARY NEGLIGENCE; PROVIDED THAT SUCH INDEMNITY SHALL NOT, AS TO ANY INDEMNITEE, BE AVAILABLE TO THE EXTENT THAT SUCH LOSSES, CLAIMS, DAMAGES, LIABILITIES OR RELATED EXPENSES ARE DETERMINED BY A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION BY FINAL AND NONAPPEALABLE JUDGMENT TO (X) HAVE RESULTED FROM (1) THE GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT OF SUCH INDEMNITEE OR (2) THE MATERIAL BREACH OF SUCH INDEMNITEE’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS OR (Y) RELATE TO TAXES, WHICH SHALL BE SUBJECT TO INDEMNIFICATION PURSUANT TO SECTION 5.03, OTHER THAN TAXES THAT REPRESENT LOSSES, CLAIMS, DAMAGES, ETC.

(d)    To the extent permitted by applicable law, (i) the Borrower shall not assert, and the Borrower hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee for any damages arising from the use by others of information or other materials obtained through telecommunications, electronic or other information transmission systems (including the Internet), and (ii) the Borrower shall not, and shall cause each Loan Party not to, assert, and hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, the Transactions, any Loan or the use of the proceeds thereof; provided that, nothing in this clause (d)(ii) shall relieve the Borrower of any obligation it may have to indemnify an Indemnitee against special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages asserted against such Indemnitee by a third party.
(e)    Subject to the Orders, all amounts due under this Section 12.03 shall be payable not later than ten (10) days after written demand and invoice therefor.
Section 12.04    Successors and Assigns.
(a)    The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, except that (i) none of the Loan Parties may assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the Agent and each Lender (and any attempted assignment or transfer by any Loan Party without such consent shall be null and void) and (ii) no Lender may assign or otherwise transfer its rights or obligations hereunder except in accordance with this Section 12.04. Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, shall be construed to confer upon any Person (other than the parties hereto, their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, Participants (to the extent provided in Section 12.04(c)) and, to the extent expressly contemplated hereby, the Related Parties of each of the Agent and the Lenders) any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or by reason of this Agreement.
(b)    Subject to the conditions set forth in Section 12.04(b)(i), any Lender may assign to one or more assignees (each, an “Assignee”) any Loans and all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement with the prior written consent of the Borrower (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld), provided that no consent of the Borrower shall be required if (1) an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or (2) at any other time, such assignment is to an Eligible Assignee; provided further, that the Borrower shall be deemed to have consented to any such assignment unless the Borrower shall object thereto by written notice to the Agent within ten (10) Business Days after having received written notice thereof.
(i)    Assignments shall be subject to the following additional conditions:

71





(A)    except in the case of an assignment to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender, a Related Fund or an assignment of the entire remaining amount of the assigning Lender’s Loans, the amount of the Loans of the assigning Lender subject to each such assignment (determined as of the date the Assignment Agreement with respect to such assignment is delivered to the Agent) shall not be less than $100,000 unless each of the Borrower and the Agent otherwise consent, provided that no such consent of the Borrower shall be required if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing;
(B)    each partial assignment shall be made as an assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement;
(C)    the parties to each assignment shall execute and deliver to the Agent an Assignment Agreement, together with a processing and recordation fee of $3,500 (other than in the case of an assignment from a Lender to its Affiliate or to a Related Fund);
(D)    the assignee, if it shall not be a Lender, shall deliver to the Agent an Administrative Questionnaire; and
(E)    the assignee must not be a natural person, a Loan Party, a Defaulting Lender or an Affiliate or Subsidiary of the Borrower (other than Tema).
(ii)    Subject to Section 12.04(b)(iv) and the acceptance and recording thereof, from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment Agreement the Assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment Agreement, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement, and the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment Agreement, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment Agreement covering all of the 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 Section 5.01, Section 5.03 and Section 12.03). Any assignment or transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this Section 12.04 shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with Section 12.04(c).
(iii)    The Agent, acting solely for this purpose as a non‑fiduciary agent of the Borrower, shall maintain at one of its offices a copy of each Assignment Agreement delivered to it and the Register. The entries in the Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and the Borrower, the Agent and the Lenders shall 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, notwithstanding notice to the contrary. 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. In connection with any changes to the Register, if necessary, the Agent will reflect the revisions on Annex I and forward a copy of such revised Annex I to the Borrower and each Lender.
(iv)    Upon its receipt of a duly completed Assignment Agreement executed by an assigning Lender and an assignee, the Assignee’s completed Administrative Questionnaire and, if required hereunder, applicable tax forms (unless the Assignee shall already be a Lender hereunder), the processing and recordation fee referred to in this Section 12.04(b) and any written consent to such assignment required by this Section 12.04(b), the Agent shall accept such Assignment Agreement and record the information contained therein in the Register. No assignment shall be effective for purposes of this Agreement unless it has been recorded in the Register as provided in this Section 12.04(b).
(v)    [reserved].

72





(vi)    Notwithstanding the foregoing, no assignment or participation shall be made to a natural person, a Loan Party, a Defaulting Lender or an Affiliate or Subsidiary of the Borrower (other than Tema).
(c)    (i) A Lender may at any time, without the consent of, or notice to, the Borrower, the Agent or any other Person, sell participations to any Person (other than a natural Person or the Borrower or any of the Borrower’s Affiliates (other than Tema) or Subsidiaries) (a “Participant”) in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and obligations under the Loans owing to it and this Agreement; provided that (A) such Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (B) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations, (C) the Borrower, the Agent and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, and (D) the selling Lender shall maintain the Participant Register. Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which a Lender sells such a participation shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right to enforce this Agreement and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement; provided that such agreement or instrument may provide that such Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, modification or waiver described in the first proviso to Section 12.02(b) that affects such Participant. In addition such agreement must provide that the Participant be bound by the provisions of Section 12.03. Subject to Section 12.04(c)(ii), the Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 5.01, Section 5.02 and Section 5.03 to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to Section 12.04(b). To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 12.08 as though it were a Lender, provided such Participant agrees to be subject to Section 4.01(c) as though it were a Lender. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non‑fiduciary agent of the Borrower, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each Participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under the Loan Documents (the “Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant’s interest in any commitments, loans, letters of credit or its other obligations under any Loan Document) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such commitment, loan, letter of credit or other obligation is in registered form under Treasury Regulation Section 5f.103‑1(c), proposed Treasury Regulation 1.163-5 or any applicable temporary, final or other successor regulations. The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, the Agent (in its capacity as Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.
(i)    A Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 5.01 or Section 5.03 than the applicable Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such Participant, unless the entitlement to a greater payment results from a Change in Law after such Participant acquired its participation. A Participant that shall not be entitled to the benefits of Section 5.03 unless such Participant agrees, for the benefit of the Borrower, to comply with the requirements and limitations under Section 5.03(e) as though it were a Lender (it being understood the documentation required under Section 5.03(e) shall be provided only to the selling Lender).
(d)    Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under Loans owing to it and this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank or a central bank, and this Section 12.04(d) shall not apply to any such pledge or assignment of a security interest; provided that no such pledge or assignment of a security interest shall release a Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or Assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.
(e)    Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section 12.04, no transfer or assignment of the interests or obligations of any Lender or any grant of participations therein shall be permitted if such transfer, assignment or grant would require the Borrower and the other Loan Parties to file a registration statement with the SEC or to qualify the Loans under the “blue sky” laws of any state.

73





Section 12.05    Survival; Revival; Reinstatement.
(a)    All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made by RRI or the Loan Parties herein and in the certificates or other instruments delivered in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be considered to have been relied upon by the other parties hereto and shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and the making of any Loan, regardless of any investigation made by any such other party or on its behalf and notwithstanding that the Agent, any other Agent or any Lender may have had notice or knowledge of any Default or incorrect representation or warranty at the time any credit is extended hereunder, and shall continue in full force and effect as long as the principal of or any accrued interest on any Loan or any fee or any other amount payable under this Agreement is outstanding and unpaid. The provisions of Section 5.01, Section 5.02, Section 5.03 and Section 12.03 and Article XI shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of the Loans, or the termination of this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any provision hereof or thereof.
(b)    To the extent that any payments on the Obligations or proceeds of any collateral are subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required to be repaid to a trustee, debtor in possession, receiver or other Person under any bankruptcy law, common law or equitable cause, then to such extent, the Obligations shall be revived and continue as if such payment or proceeds had not been received and the Agent’s and the Lenders’ Liens, security interests, rights, powers and remedies under this Agreement and each Loan Document shall continue in full force and effect. In such event, each Loan Document shall be automatically reinstated and the Borrower shall, and shall cause each other Loan Party to, take such action as may be reasonably requested by the Agent and the Lenders to effect such reinstatement.
Section 12.06    Counterparts; Integration; Effectiveness.
(a)    This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto on different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract.
(b)    This Agreement, the other Loan Documents and any separate letter agreements with respect to fees payable to the Agent constitute the entire contract among the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersede any and all previous agreements and understandings, oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof. THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS REPRESENT THE FINAL AGREEMENT AMONG THE PARTIES HERETO AND THERETO AND MAY NOT BE CONTRADICTED BY EVIDENCE OF PRIOR, CONTEMPORANEOUS OR SUBSEQUENT ORAL AGREEMENTS OF THE PARTIES. THERE ARE NO UNWRITTEN ORAL AGREEMENTS BETWEEN THE PARTIES.
(c)    Except as provided in Section 6.01, this Agreement shall become effective when it shall have been executed by the Agent and when the Agent shall have received counterparts hereof which, when taken together, bear the signatures of each of the other parties hereto, and thereafter shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Agreement by fax or other similar electronic means (including by email of a “pdf” signature page) shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Agreement that is an electronic sound, symbol, or process attached to, or associated with, a contract or other record and adopted by a Person with the intent to sign, authenticate or accept such contract or record (an "Electronic Signature") transmitted by telecopy, emailed pdf or any other electronic means that reproduces an image of an actual executed signature page shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement. The words "execution," "signed," "signature," "delivery," and words of like import in or relating to this Agreement shall be deemed to include Electronic Signatures, which shall have the same legal effect, validity and enforceability as a manually executed signature.
Section 12.07    Severability. Any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability without affecting the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions

74





hereof or thereof; and the invalidity of a particular provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate such provision in any other jurisdiction.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Section 12.11(a) or otherwise, nothing herein shall prevent a Recipient or its Permitted Recipients from complying with any legal requirements (including, without limitation, pursuant to any rule, regulation, stock exchange requirement, self-regulatory body, supervisory authority, other applicable judicial or governmental order, legal process, fiduciary or similar duties or otherwise) to disclose any Confidential Information. In addition, the Recipient and its Permitted Recipients may disclose Confidential Information if so requested by a governmental, self-regulatory or supervisory authority. Each Loan Party hereby acknowledges and agrees that, subject to the restrictions on disclosure of Confidential Information as provided in this Section 12.11(a), the Recipient and their respective Affiliates are in the business of making investments in and otherwise engaging in businesses which may or may not be in competition with the Loan Parties or otherwise related to their and their Affiliates’ respective business and that nothing herein shall, or shall be construed to, limit the Lenders’ or their Affiliates’ ability to make such investments or engage in such businesses. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 12.11(a), the parties (and each employee, representative, or other agent of the parties) may disclose to any and all Persons, without limitation of any kind, the Tax treatment and any facts that may be relevant to the Tax structure of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the other Loan Documents; provided, however, that no party (and no employee, representative, or other agent thereof) shall disclose any other information that is not relevant to an understanding of the Tax treatment and Tax structure of the transaction (including the identity of any party and any information that could lead another to determine the identity of any party), or any other information to the extent that such disclosure could reasonably result in a violation of any applicable securities law.
(b)    The Borrower understands and acknowledges that in the regular course of a Lender’s business, such Lender may invest in companies that have issued securities that are publicly traded (each, a “Public Company”). Accordingly, Borrower covenants and agrees that before providing material non-public information about any Public Company (other than material non-public information in respect of RRI and its Subsidiaries) (“Public Company Information”), the Borrower will use reasonable best efforts to provide prior written notice to the applicable compliance personnel indicated in Schedule 12.11. The Borrower shall not disclose Public Company Information to such Lender without written authorization from such compliance personnel; provided that any failure to comply with this Section 12.11(b) shall not constitute a Default or an Event of Default hereunder.
Section 12.12    Interest Rate Limitation. It is the intention of the parties hereto that each Lender shall conform strictly to usury laws applicable to it. Accordingly, if the transactions contemplated hereby would be usurious as to any Lender under laws applicable to it (including the laws of the United States of America and the State of Texas or any other jurisdiction whose laws may be mandatorily applicable to such Lender notwithstanding the other provisions of this Agreement), then, in that event, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any of the Loan Documents or any agreement entered into in connection with or as security for the Loans, it is agreed as follows: (a) the aggregate of all consideration which constitutes interest under law applicable to any Lender that is contracted for, taken, reserved,

76





charged or received by such Lender under any of the Loan Documents or agreements or otherwise in connection with the Loans shall under no circumstances exceed the maximum amount allowed by such applicable law, and any excess shall be canceled automatically and if theretofore paid shall be credited by such Lender on the principal amount of the Obligations (or, to the extent that the principal amount of the Obligations shall have been or would thereby be paid in full, refunded by such Lender to the Borrower); and (b) in the event that the maturity of the Loans is accelerated by reason of an election of the Lender thereof resulting from any Event of Default under this Agreement or otherwise, or in the event of any required or permitted prepayment, then such consideration that constitutes interest under law applicable to any Lender may never include more than the maximum amount allowed by such applicable law, and excess interest, if any, provided for in this Agreement or otherwise shall be canceled automatically by such Lender as of the date of such acceleration or prepayment and, if theretofore paid, shall be credited by such Lender on the principal amount of the Debt (or, to the extent that the principal amount of the Debt shall have been or would thereby be paid in full, refunded by such Lender to the Borrower). All sums paid or agreed to be paid to any Lender for the use, forbearance or detention of sums due hereunder shall, to the extent permitted by law applicable to such Lender, be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread throughout the stated term of the Loans until payment in full so that the rate or amount of interest on account of any Loans hereunder does not exceed the maximum amount allowed by such applicable law. If at any time and from time to time (i) the amount of interest payable to any Lender on any date shall be computed at the Highest Lawful Rate applicable to such Lender pursuant to this Section 12.12 and (ii) in respect of any subsequent interest computation period the amount of interest otherwise payable to such Lender would be less than the amount of interest payable to such Lender computed at the Highest Lawful Rate applicable to such Lender, then the amount of interest payable to such Lender in respect of such subsequent interest computation period shall continue to be computed at the Highest Lawful Rate applicable to such Lender until the total amount of interest payable to such Lender shall equal the total amount of interest which would have been payable to such Lender if the total amount of interest had been computed without giving effect to this Section 12.12. To the extent that Chapter 303 of the Texas Finance Code is relevant for the purpose of determining the Highest Lawful Rate applicable to any Lender, such Lender elects to determine the applicable rate ceiling under such Chapter by the weekly ceiling from time to time in effect. Chapter 346 of the Texas Finance Code does not apply to the Borrower’s obligations hereunder.
