(e)    Each Loan Party, for itself and on behalf of each other Releasing Person, hereby absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably covenants and agrees with and in favor of each Releasee above that it will not sue (at law, in equity, in any regulatory proceeding or otherwise) any Releasee on the basis of any Claim released, remised and discharged by such Person pursuant to the above release in this Section 16. Each Loan Party further agrees that it shall not dispute the validity or enforceability of the this Amendment, the Credit Agreement, any of the other Loan Documents, or any of its obligations hereunder or thereunder, or the creation, validity, perfection, priority, enforceability or the extent of Agent’s security interest or Lien on any item of Collateral under the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents or the providing of any “control” (within the meaning of Articles 8 and 9 under the applicable UCC) under any Control Agreement or any other Loan Document. If any Loan Party or any other Releasing Person breaches or otherwise violates the foregoing covenant and provisions, such Loan Party, for itself and its Releasing Persons, agrees to pay, in addition to such other damages as any Releasee may sustain as a result of such violation, all attorneys’ fees, expenses and costs and any other fees, expenses and costs incurred by such Releasee as a result of such breach or violation.

SECTION 5. SEC Filing. At or prior to 8:30 a.m. (New York City time) on the first (1st) Business Day following the date of this Amendment, the Borrower shall file a Form 8-K with the SEC describing the terms of the transactions contemplated by this Amendment and the ABL Amendment and including as exhibits to such Form 8-K this Amendment (including the exhibits and other documents attached hereto and thereto) and any related documents (such Form 8-K, the “Announcing Facility Amendment Form 8-K”) disclosing any other presently material non-public information (if any) provided or made available to any Secured Party (or any such Secured Party’s agents or representatives) on or prior to the filing of the Announcing Facility Amendment Form 8-K. Subject to the foregoing, no Loan Party will issue any press releases or any other public statements with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Amendment or the ABL Amendment or disclosing the name of any Secured Party; provided, however, that the Borrower will be entitled, without the prior approval of any Secured Party, to make any press release or other public disclosure with respect to such transactions (i) in substantial conformity with the Announcing Facility Amendment Form 8-K and contemporaneously therewith and (ii) as is required by Applicable Law and regulations (provided that each Secured Party will be consulted by the Borrower in connection with any such press release or other public disclosure prior to its release and will be provided with a copy thereof by the Borrower other than filings required by the Exchange Act to be made with the SEC, which Borrower may make without such consultation or notice). From and after the Borrower’s filing of the Announcing Facility Amendment Form 8-K, no Secured Party shall be in possession of any material nonpublic information received from the Borrower, any other Loan Party or any of their Subsidiaries or Affiliates or any of its or their respective officers, directors, employees, attorneys, representatives or agents. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Amendment to the contrary and without implication that the contrary would otherwise be true, after giving effect to the filing of the Announcing Facility Amendment Form 8-K, the Borrower expressly acknowledges and agrees that no Secured Party shall have any duty of trust or confidence with respect to, or duty not to trade in any securities on the basis of, any information regarding the Borrower that is otherwise possessed (or continued to be possessed) by any Secured Party as a result of a breach of any of the covenants set forth in this Section 5.

SECTION 6. Fees, Costs and Expense Reimbursement. In connection with the Agent and the Lenders party hereto agreeing to enter into this Amendment and provide the accommodations hereunder, the Loan Parties agree to pay on the date of this Amendment all fees, costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by the Secured Parties in connection with this Amendment and any other Loan Document and the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby.

SECTION 7. Captions. Captions used in this Amendment are for convenience only and shall not modify or affect the interpretation or construction of this Amendment or any of its provisions.

SECTION 8. Counterparts. This Amendment may be executed in several counterparts, and by each party hereto on separate counterparts, each of which and any photocopies, facsimile copies

 

9


and other electronic methods of transmission thereof shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same agreement.

SECTION 9. Severability. If any provision of this Amendment shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect under any Applicable Law, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby. The parties hereto shall endeavor in good faith negotiations to replace the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provisions with valid provisions the economic effect of which comes as close as possible to that of the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision.

SECTION 10. Entire Agreement. The Facility Agreement as amended hereby, together with all other Loan Documents, contains the entire understanding among the parties hereto with respect to the matters covered thereby and supersedes any and all other written and oral communications, negotiations, commitments and writings with respect thereto.

SECTION 11. Successors; Assigns. This Amendment shall be binding upon Borrower, the Loan Parties, the Lenders and Agent and their respective successors and permitted assigns, and shall inure to the benefit of Borrower, the Loan Parties, the Lenders, Agent and the other Secured Parties and the successors and assigns of the Lenders, Agent and the other Secured Parties. No other Person shall be a direct or indirect legal beneficiary of, or have any direct or indirect cause of action or claim in connection with, this Amendment or any of the other Loan Documents. No Loan Party may assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Amendment without the prior written consent of Agent and each Lender, and any prohibited assignment or transfer shall be absolutely void ab initio.

SECTION 12. Governing Law. ALL QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE CONSTRUCTION, VALIDITY, ENFORCEMENT AND INTERPRETATION OF THIS AMENDMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED AND ENFORCED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK APPLICABLE TO CONTRACTS MADE AND TO BE PERFORMED IN SUCH STATE. Section 6.4 of the Facility Agreement is incorporated herein, mutatis mutandis.

SECTION 13. Reaffirmation and Ratification. Each Loan Party party hereto as debtor, grantor, pledgor, guarantor, assignor, or in any other similar capacity in which such Person grants Liens in its property or otherwise acts as accommodation party or guarantor, as the case may be pursuant to the Loan Documents, hereby (i) ratifies and reaffirms all of its payment and performance obligations, contingent or otherwise, under the Facility Agreement and each other Loan Document to which it is a party (after giving effect hereto) and (ii) to the extent such Person granted Liens or security interests in any of its property pursuant to any Loan Documents as security for or otherwise guaranteed the Obligations under or with respect to the Loan Documents, ratifies and reaffirms such guarantee and grant (and the validity and enforceability thereof) of Liens and confirms and agrees and acknowledges that such Liens and security interests, and all Collateral heretofore pledged as security for such obligations, continue to be and remain collateral for such obligations from and after the date hereof. Each Loan Party party hereto hereby consents to this Amendment and acknowledges that the Facility Agreement and each other Loan Document remains in full force and effect and is hereby ratified and reaffirmed. The execution and delivery of this Amendment shall not operate as a waiver of any right, power

 

10


or remedy of Agent, the Lenders or any other Secured Party, constitute a waiver of any provision of the Facility Agreement or any other Loan Document or serve to effect a novation of the obligations (including the Obligations).

SECTION 14. Effect on Loan Documents.

(a)    The Facility Agreement, as amended hereby, and each of the other Loan Documents, as amended as of the date hereof, shall be and remain in full force and effect in accordance with their respective terms and hereby are ratified and confirmed in all respects. The execution, delivery, and performance of this Amendment shall not operate, except with respect to the modifications and amendments expressly set forth herein, as a waiver of, consent to, or a modification or amendment of, any right, power, or remedy of Agent or any Lender under the Facility Agreement or any other Loan Document. Except for the amendments to the Facility Agreement expressly set forth herein, the Facility Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall remain unchanged and in full force and effect. The amendments, modifications and other agreements set forth herein are limited to the specified provisions hereof, shall not apply with respect to any facts or occurrences other than those on which the same are based, shall neither excuse future non-compliance with the Loan Documents nor operate as a waiver of any Default or Event of Default, shall not operate as a consent to any further or other matter under the Loan Documents and shall not be construed as an indication that any waiver of covenants or any other provision of the Facility Agreement will be agreed to, it being understood that the granting or denying of any waiver which may hereafter be requested by Borrower or any other Loan Party remains in the sole and absolute discretion of the Agent and the Lenders.

(b)    Upon and after the effectiveness of this Amendment, each reference in the Facility Agreement to “this Agreement”, “hereunder”, “herein”, “hereof” or words of like import referring to the Facility Agreement, and each reference in the other Loan Documents to “the Facility Agreement”, “thereunder”, “therein”, “thereof” or words of like import referring to the Facility Agreement, shall mean and be a reference to the Facility Agreement as modified and amended hereby.

(c)    To the extent that any of the terms and conditions in any of the Loan Documents shall contradict or be in conflict with any of the terms or conditions of the Facility Agreement, after giving effect to this Amendment, such terms and conditions are hereby deemed modified and amended accordingly to reflect the terms and conditions of the Facility Agreement as modified and amended hereby.

(d)    This Amendment is a Loan Document.

 

11


SECTION 15. Guarantors’ Acknowledgment and Agreement. Although the Guarantors party hereto have been informed of the matters set forth herein and have agreed to the same, each such Guarantor understands, acknowledges and agrees that none of the Secured Parties has any obligations to inform such Guarantor of such matters in the future or to seek its acknowledgment or agreement to future amendments, restatements, supplements, changes, modifications, waivers or consents, and nothing herein shall create such a duty.

SECTION 16. Release.

(a)    As of the date of this Amendment, each Loan Party, for itself and on behalf of its successors, assigns, Subsidiaries and such Loan Party’s and its Subsidiaries’ officers, directors (and any equivalent governing body), employees, agents, representatives, advisors, consultants, accountants and attorneys, and any Person acting for or on behalf of, or claiming through it (collectively, the “Releasing Persons”), hereby waives, releases, remises and forever discharges each Secured Party, each of their respective Affiliates and successors in title, and past, present and future officers, directors, employees, limited partners, general partners, investors, attorneys, assigns, subsidiaries, shareholders, trustees, agents and other professionals of the foregoing entities and all other Persons and entities to whom any Secured Party would be liable if such Persons were found to be liable to such Releasing Persons (each a “Releasee” and collectively, the “Releasees”), from any and all past, present and future claims, suits, liens, lawsuits, amounts paid in settlement, debts, deficiencies, disbursements, demands, obligations, liabilities, causes of action, damages, losses, costs and expenses of any kind or character, whether based in equity, law, contract, tort, implied or express warranty, strict liability, criminal or civil statute or common law (each a “Claim” and collectively, the “Claims”), whether known or unknown, fixed or contingent, direct, indirect, or derivative, asserted or unasserted, matured or unmatured, foreseen or unforeseen, past or present, liquidated or unliquidated, suspected or unsuspected, which such Releasing Persons ever had from the beginning of the world until (and including) the date hereof against any such Releasing Person which relates, directly or indirectly, to the Facility Agreement, any other Loan Document, the Stock owned by any Releasee or to any acts or omissions of any such Releasee with respect to the Facility Agreement or any other Loan Document or any Stock owned by any Releasee, or to the lender-borrower relationship evidenced by the Loan Documents or the Warrant/Stock holder or owner-issuer of Warrant/Stock holder issuer.

(b)    As to each and every Claim released hereunder, each Loan Party hereby agrees, represents and warrants that it has received the advice of legal counsel with regard to the releases contained herein, and having been so advised, specifically waives the benefit of the provisions of Section 1542 of the Civil Code of California which provides as follows:

“A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”

As to each and every Claim released hereunder, each Loan Party also waives the benefit of each other similar provision of applicable federal, state or foreign law (including

 

12


without limitation the laws of the State of New York), if any, pertaining to general releases after having been advised by legal counsel to such Loan Party with respect thereto.

(c)    Each Loan Party acknowledges that it may hereafter discover facts different from or in addition to those now known or believed to be true with respect to such Claims and agrees that this Amendment shall be and remain effective in all respects notwithstanding any such differences or additional facts. Each Loan Party understands, acknowledges and agrees that the release set forth above in this Section 16 may be pleaded as a full and complete defense and may be used as a basis for an injunction against any action, suit or other proceeding which may be instituted, prosecuted or attempted in breach of the provisions of such release.

(d)    Each Loan Party hereby agrees, represents, and warrants that (a) neither such Loan Party nor any other Releasing Person has voluntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, assigned, conveyed, transferred or encumbered, either directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, any right to or interest in any of the Claims released pursuant to this Section 16; (b) this Amendment has been entered into without force or duress, of the free will of each Loan Party, and the decision of such undersigned to enter into this Amendment is a fully informed decision and such undersigned is aware of all legal and other ramifications of each such decision; and (c) such Loan Party has read and understands this Amendment (including the release granted in this Section 16), has consulted with and been represented by independent legal counsel of its own choosing in negotiations for and the preparation of this Amendment, has read this Amendment in full and final form, and has been advised by its counsel of its rights and obligations under this Amendment.

(e)    Each Loan Party, for itself and on behalf of each other Releasing Person, hereby absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably covenants and agrees with and in favor of each Releasee above that it will not sue (at law, in equity, in any regulatory proceeding or otherwise) any Releasee on the basis of any Claim released, remised and discharged by such Person pursuant to the above release in this Section 16. Each Loan Party further agrees that it shall not dispute the validity or enforceability of the this Amendment, the Facility Agreement, any of the other Loan Documents, or any of its obligations hereunder or thereunder, or the creation, validity, perfection, priority, enforceability or the extent of Agent’s security interest or Lien on any item of Collateral under the Facility Agreement and the other Loan Documents or the providing of any “control” (within the meaning of Articles 8 and 9 under the applicable UCC) under any Control Agreement or any other Loan Document. If any Loan Party or any other Releasing Person breaches or otherwise violates the foregoing covenant and provisions, such Loan Party, for itself and its Releasing Persons, agrees to pay, in addition to such other damages as any Releasee may sustain as a result of such violation, all attorneys’ fees, expenses and costs and any other fees, expenses and costs incurred by such Releasee as a result of such breach or violation.
