A.          The Borrower, the Parent, the other Guarantors party thereto, the Lenders party thereto, and the Administrative Agent are party to a Credit Agreement dated as of July 20, 2016 (as amended, modified, restated, or supplemented from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”).

 

B.           The Borrower has advised the Administrative Agent and the Lenders that, on or prior to December 31, 2016, the Borrower intends to prepay all outstanding Mezzanine Subordinated Debt that is subject to the Mezzanine Subordination Agreement (which amount is $13,078,000), plus accrued interest thereon and any prepayment premium payable in connection therewith (the “Proposed Prepayment”). The Borrower has requested that the Administrative Agent and the Lenders consent to the Proposed Prepayment and waive certain provisions of the Loan Documents to permit the Proposed Prepayment, and the Administrative Agent and the Lenders are willing to do so pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth herein.

 

C.           The Borrower, the Lenders and the Administrative Agent have also agreed to make certain other amendments to the Credit Agreement on the terms and conditions set forth in this Amendment.

 

Now, Therefore, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:

 

Section 1.            Incorporation Of Recitals; Defined Terms.

 

The Borrower and the Guarantors acknowledge that the Recitals set forth above are true and correct. This Amendment shall constitute a Loan Document, and the Recitals shall be construed as part of this Amendment. Each capitalized term used but not otherwise defined herein, including capitalized terms used in the introductory paragraph hereof and the Recitals, has the meaning assigned to it in the Credit Agreement.

 

Section 2.            Consent To Proposed Prepayment And Limited Waiver.

 

2.1          Consent. Subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 4 hereof, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereby (a) consent to the Proposed Prepayment, and (b) acknowledge that, so long as the Proposed Prepayment complies with Section 2.2 hereof, such payment shall be deemed a Permitted Subordinated Debt Payment (as defined in the Mezzanine Subordination Agreement) under Section 2.2 of the Mezzanine Subordination Agreement and a permitted payment under Section 6.22 of the Credit Agreement.

 

 

 

 

2.2          Limited Waiver. The Borrower has requested that the Administrative Agent and the Lenders waive any Defaults or Events of Default arising solely from the Proposed Prepayment. Upon satisfaction of the conditions precedent set forth in Section 4 below and subject to the terms hereof, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders party hereto waive any Defaults or Events of Default arising solely from the Proposed Prepayment; provided, however, that the foregoing waiver shall be effective only to the extent that (x) the Proposed Prepayment is made on or prior to December 31, 2016, and (y) the total amount of such Proposed Prepayment does not exceed $13,078,000 plus accrued interest thereon and the applicable Prepayment Premium (as defined in the Mezzanine Loan Agreement) set forth in Section 2.8(a) of the Mezzanine Loan Agreement.

2.3          Scope. This limited waiver and consent shall be limited specifically as written herein and shall be solely a consent and waiver as provided herein. This Amendment shall not constitute a consent to any other transactions prohibited by the Credit Agreement, the Mezzanine Subordination Agreement or any other Loan Document, nor shall this Section 2 be a waiver or modification of any other term, provision, or condition of the Credit Agreement, the Mezzanine Subordination Agreement or any other Loan Document.
