Revolving Advances. ------------------ (a) Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein and in the Ancillary Agreements, each Lender, severally and not jointly, will make Revolving Advances to Borrower from time to time during the Term which, in the aggregate at any time outstanding, will not exceed such Lender's Commitment Percentage of the lesser of (x) the Maximum Revolving Amount less the aggregate amount of outstanding Letters of Credit less the minimum Undrawn Availability requirement set forth in Section 12(q) hereof or (y) an amount equal to the sum of: (i) Receivables Availability, minus ----- (ii) the aggregate amount of outstanding Letters of Credit, minus ----- (iii) the minimum Undrawn Availability requirement set forth in Section 12(q) hereof minus; ----- (iv) such reserves as Agent may reasonably deem proper and necessary from time to time. The sum of 2(a)(i) minus (iv) shall be referred to as the ----- "Formula Amount." (b) Notwithstanding the limitations set forth above, Lenders retain the right to lend Borrower from time to time such amounts in excess of such limitations as Lenders may determine in their sole discretion. (c) Borrower acknowledges that the exercise of Lenders' discretionary rights hereunder may result during the Term in one or more increases or decreases in the Advance Rate and Borrower hereby consents to any such increases or decreases which may limit or restrict -11- advances requested by Borrower, provided, however, that to the extent any -------- ------- decrease in the Advance Rate or the establishment by Agent of any reserves results in a decrease in the calculation of subsection 2(a)(y) by at least $1,000,000, then Borrower may, at its option, upon three (3) Business Days' notice to Agent, have the ability to permanently reduce the Maximum Revolving Amount by a like amount without incurring any early termination fee pursuant to Section 18 hereof, provided, further, that concurrently with any such permanent reduction, Borrower shall be obligated to prepay the outstanding balance of Revolving Advances to the extent necessary to comply with Section 2(i) below after giving effect to such permanent reduction. (d) If Borrower does not pay any interest, fees, costs or charges to Lenders when due, Borrower shall thereby be deemed to have requested, and Agent, for the ratable benefit of Lenders is hereby authorized at its discretion to make and charge to Borrower's account, a Revolving Advance to Borrower as of such date in an amount equal to such unpaid interest, fees, costs or charges. (e) Any sums expended by Agent or Lenders due to Borrower's failure to perform or comply with its obligations under this Agreement, including but not limited to the payment of taxes, insurance premiums or leasehold obligations, shall be charged to Borrower's account as a Revolving Advance and added to the Obligations. (f) Agent will account to Borrower monthly with a statement of all Revolving Advances and other advances, charges and payments made pursuant to this Agreement, and such account rendered by Agent shall be deemed final, binding and conclusive, absent manifest error, unless Agent is notified by Borrower in writing to the contrary within sixty (60) days of the date each account was rendered specifying the item or items to which objection is made. (g) During the Term, Borrower may borrow, prepay and reborrow Revolving Advances, all in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof. (h) Borrower shall apply the proceeds of the Loans to provide for its working capital needs. (i) The aggregate balance of Revolving Advances outstanding at any time shall not exceed the lesser of the Formula Amount or the Maximum Revolving Amount, in each case less the minimum Undrawn Availability requirements set forth in Section 12(q) hereof. (j) Letters of Credit. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, ----------------- Agent shall issue or cause the issuance of standby Letters of Credit ("Letters of Credit") on behalf of Borrower, provided, however, that Agent will not be -------- ------- required to issue or cause to be issued any Letters of Credit to the extent that the face amount of such Letters of Credit would then cause the sum of (i) the outstanding Revolving Advances plus (ii) outstanding Letters of Credit to exceed ---- the lesser of (x) the Maximum Revolving Amount or (y) the Formula Amount. The maximum amount of outstanding Letters of Credit shall not exceed $4,000,000 in the aggregate at any time. All disbursements or payments related to Letters of Credit shall be deemed to be Domestic Rate Loans consisting of Revolving Advances and shall bear interest at the applicable Revolving -12- Interest Rate for Domestic Rate Loans; Letters of Credit that have not been drawn upon shall not bear interest. (k) Issuance of Letters of Credit. ----------------------------- (1) Borrower may request Agent to issue or cause the issuance of a Letter of Credit by delivering to Agent at the Payment Office, the applicable Issuer's form of Letter of Credit Application (the "Letter of Credit Application") completed to the satisfaction of Agent and such Issuer; and, such other certificates, documents and other papers and information as Agent or Issuer may reasonably request. (2) Each Letter of Credit shall, among other things, (i) provide for the payment of sight drafts or acceptances of drafts when presented for honor thereunder in accordance with the terms thereof and when accompanied by the documents described therein and (ii) have an expiry date not later than six (6) months after such Letter of Credit's date of issuance and in no event later than the last day of the Term. Each Letter of Credit shall be subject to the Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits (1993 Revision), International Chamber of Commerce Publication No. 500, and any amendments or revision thereof adhered to by the Issuer and, to the extent not inconsistent therewith, the laws of the State of New York. (3) Agent shall use its reasonable efforts to notify Lenders of the request by Borrower for a Letter of Credit hereunder. (l) Requirements for Issuance of Letters of Credit. ---------------------------------------------- (1) In connection with the issuance of any Letter of Credit, Borrower shall indemnify, save and hold Agent, each Lender and each Issuer harmless from any loss, cost, expense or liability, including, without limitation, payments made by Agent, any Lender or any Issuer, and expenses and reasonable attorneys' fees incurred by Agent or any Lender arising out of, or in connection with, any Letter of Credit to be issued or created for Borrower. Borrower shall be bound by Agent's or any Issuer's regulations and good faith interpretations of any Letter of Credit issued or created for Borrower's Account, although this interpretation may be different from Borrower's own; and, neither Agent, nor any Lender, nor any Issuer, nor any of their correspondents shall be liable for any error, negligence, or mistakes, whether of omission or commission, in following Borrower's instructions or those contained in any Letter of Credit or of any modifications, amendments or supplements thereto or in issuing or paying any Letter of Credit, except for Agent's, any Lender's, any Issuer's or such correspondents' gross (not mere) negligence. (2) Borrower shall authorize and direct Issuer to name Borrower as the "Applicant" or "Account Party" therein and to deliver to Agent all instruments, documents, and other writings and property received by the Issuer pursuant to the Letter of Credit and to accept and rely upon Agent's instructions and agreements with respect to all matters arising in connection with the Letter of Credit or the application therefor. -13- (3) In connection with all Letters of Credit issued or caused to be issued by Agent under this Agreement, Borrower hereby appoints Agent, or its designee, as its attorney, with full power and authority, (i) to sign and/or endorse Borrower's name upon any warehouse or other receipts, (ii) to sign Borrower's name on bills of lading; and (iii) to complete in Borrower's name or Agent's, or in the name of Agent's designee, any order, sale or transaction, obtain the necessary documents in connection therewith, and collect the proceeds thereof. Neither Agent nor its attorneys will be liable for any acts or omissions nor for any error of judgment or mistakes of fact or law, except for Agent's or its attorney's gross (not mere) negligence. This power, being coupled with an interest, is irrevocable as long as any Letters of Credit remain outstanding. (4) Each Lender shall to the extent of the percentage amount equal to the product of such Lender's Commitment Percentage times the aggregate amount of all unreimbursed reimbursement obligations arising from disbursements made or obligations incurred with respect to the Letters of Credit be deemed to have irrevocably purchased an undivided participation in each such unreimbursed reimbursement obligation. In the event that at the time a disbursement is made the unpaid balance of Revolving Advances exceeds or would exceed, with the making of such disbursement, the lesser of the Maximum Revolving Amount or the Formula Amount, and such disbursement is not reimbursed by Borrower within two (2) Business Days, Agent shall promptly notify each Lender and upon Agent's demand each Lender shall pay to Agent such Lender's proportionate share of such unreimbursed disbursement together with such Lender's proportionate share of Agent's unreimbursed costs and expenses relating to such unreimbursed disbursement. Upon receipt by Agent of a repayment from Borrower of any amount disbursed by Agent for which Agent had already been reimbursed by Lenders, Agent shall deliver to each Lender that Lender's pro rata share of such repayment. Each Lender's participation commitment shall continue until the last to occur of any of the following events: (A) Agent ceases to be obligated to issue or cause to be issued Letters of Credit hereunder; (B) no Letter of Credit issued hereunder remains outstanding and uncancelled or (C) all Persons (other than Borrower) have been fully reimbursed for all payments made under or relating to Letters of Credit. 3. Repayment of Loans. ------------------ (a) Borrower shall be required to (i) make a mandatory prepayment hereunder at any time that the aggregate outstanding principal balance of the Loans made by Lenders to Borrower hereunder is in excess of the lesser of the Maximum Revolving Amount or the Formula Amount in an amount equal to such excess, and (ii) repay on the expiration of the Term (x) the then aggregate outstanding principal balance of Revolving Advances made by Lenders to Borrower hereunder together with accrued and unpaid interest, fees and charges and (y) cash collateral to be maintained in an account with Bank in an amount equal to one hundred and five percent (105%) of the aggregate undrawn amount of all Letters of Credit which remain outstanding after the expiration of the Term, and (z) all other amounts owed Lenders under this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements. -14- (b) Borrower recognizes that the amounts evidenced by checks, notes, drafts or any other items of payment relating to and/or proceeds of Collateral may not be collectible by Agent on the date received. In consideration of Agent's agreement to conditionally credit Borrower's account as of the Business Day on which Agent receives those items of payment, Borrower agrees that, in computing the charges under this Agreement, all items of payment shall be deemed applied by Agent on account of the Obligations one (1) Business Day following the Business Day Agent receives such remittances via wire transfer or electronic depository check. Agent is not, however, required to credit Borrower's account for the amount of any item of payment which is unsatisfactory to Agent and Agent may charge Borrower's account for the amount of any item of payment which is returned to Agent unpaid. 4. Procedure for Revolving Advances. -------------------------------- (a) Each borrowing of Revolving Advances shall be advanced according to the applicable Commitment Percentage of each Lender. (b) In accordance with Section 26 hereof, Borrower may notify Agent prior to 11:00 A.M. on a Business Day of its request to incur, on that day, a Revolving Advance hereunder. All Revolving Advances shall be disbursed from whichever office or other place Agent may designate from time to time and, together with any and all other Obligations of Borrower to Lenders, shall be charged to Borrower's account on Agent's books. The proceeds of each Revolving Advance made by Lenders shall be made available to Borrower on the day so requested by way of credit to Borrower's operating account maintained with Bank. Any and all Obligations due and owing hereunder may be charged to the Borrower's account and shall constitute Revolving Advances. (c) Notwithstanding the provisions of clause (b) above, in the event Borrower desires to obtain a Eurodollar Rate Loan, Borrower shall give Agent at least three (3) Business Days' prior written notice, specifying (i) the date of the proposed borrowing (which shall be a Business Day), (ii) the type of borrowing and the amount on the date of such Advance to be borrowed, which amount shall be a minimum amount of $500,000 and integral multiples of $100,000 thereafter, and (iii) the duration of the first Interest Period therefor. Interest Periods for Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be for one, two or three months. No Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be made available to Borrower during the continuance of a Default or an Event of Default. (d) Each Interest Period of a Eurodollar Rate Loan shall commence on the date such Eurodollar Rate Loan is made and shall end on such date as Borrower may elect as set forth in (c)(iii) above provided that the exact length of each Interest Period shall be determined in accordance with the practice of the interbank market for offshore Dollar deposits and no Interest Period shall end after the last day of the Term. Borrower shall elect the initial Interest Period applicable to a Eurodollar Rate Loan by its notice of borrowing given to Agent pursuant to Section 4(c) or by its notice of conversion given to Agent pursuant to Section 4(e), as the case may be. Borrower shall elect the duration of each succeeding Interest Period by giving irrevocable written notice to Agent of such duration not less than three (3) Business Days prior to the last day of the then current Interest -15- Period applicable to such Eurodollar Rate Loan. If Agent does not receive timely notice of the Interest Period elected by Borrower, Borrower shall be deemed to have elected to convert to a Domestic Rate Loan subject to Section 4(e) hereinbelow. (e) Provided that no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, Borrower may, on the last Business Day of the then current Interest Period applicable to any outstanding Eurodollar Rate Loan, or on any Business Day with respect to Domestic Rate Loans, convert any such loan into a loan of another type in the same aggregate principal amount provided that any conversion of a Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be made only on the last Business Day of the then current Interest Period applicable to such Eurodollar Rate Loan. If Borrower desires to convert a loan, it shall give Agent not less than three (3) Business Days' prior written notice to convert from a Domestic Rate Loan to a Eurodollar Rate Loan or one (1) Business Day's prior written notice to convert from a Eurodollar Rate Loan to a Domestic Rate Loan, specifying the date of such conversion, the loans to be converted and if the conversion is from a Domestic Rate Loan to any other type of loan, the duration of the first Interest Period therefor. After giving effect to each such conversion, there shall not be outstanding more than four (4) Eurodollar Rate Loans, in the aggregate. (f) At its option and upon three (3) Business Days' prior written notice, Borrower may prepay the Eurodollar Rate Loans in whole at any time or in part from time to time, without premium or penalty, but with accrued interest on the principal being prepaid to the date of such repayment. Borrower shall specify the date of prepayment of Revolving Advances which are Eurodollar Rate Loans and the amount of such prepayment. In the event that any prepayment of a Eurodollar Rate Loan is required or permitted on a date other than the last Business Day of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto, Borrower shall indemnify Agent and Lenders therefor in accordance with Section 4(g) hereof. (g) Borrower shall indemnify Agent and Lenders and hold Agent and Lenders harmless from and against any and all losses or expenses that Agent and Lenders may sustain or incur as a consequence of any prepayment, conversion of or any default by Borrower in the payment of the principal of or interest on any Eurodollar Rate Loan or failure by Borrower to complete a borrowing of, a prepayment of or conversion of or to a Eurodollar Rate Loan after notice thereof has been given, including, but not limited to, any interest payable by Agent or Lenders to lenders of funds obtained by it in order to make or maintain its Eurodollar Rate Loans hereunder. A certificate as to any additional amounts payable pursuant to the foregoing sentence submitted by Agent or any Lender to Borrower shall be conclusive absent manifest error. (h) Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, if any applicable law, treaty, regulation or directive, or any change therein or in the interpretation or application thereof, shall make it unlawful for any Lender (for purposes of this subsection (h), the term "Lender" shall include any Lender and the office or branch where any Lender or any corporation or bank controlling such Lender makes or maintains any Eurodollar Rate Loans) to make or maintain its Eurodollar Rate Loans, the obligation of Lenders to make Eurodollar Rate Loans hereunder shall forthwith be cancelled and Borrower shall, if any affected Eurodollar Rate Loans are then outstanding, promptly upon request from Agent, either pay all such affected Eurodollar Rate -16- Loans or convert such affected Eurodollar Rate Loans into loans of another type. If any such payment or conversion of any Eurodollar Rate Loan is made on a day that is not the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Eurodollar Rate Loan, Borrower shall pay Agent, upon Agent's request, such amount or amounts as may be necessary to compensate lenders for any loss or expense sustained or incurred by Lenders in respect of such Eurodollar Rate Loan as a result of such payment or conversion, including (but not limited to) any interest or other amounts payable by Lenders to lenders of funds obtained by Lenders in order to make or maintain such Eurodollar Rate Loan. A certificate as to any additional amounts payable pursuant to the foregoing sentence submitted by Lenders to Borrower shall be conclusive absent manifest error. (i) If any Lender or any Transferee (a "benefitted Lender") shall at any time receive any payment of all or part of its Revolving Advances, or interest thereon, or receive any Collateral in respect thereof (whether voluntarily or involuntarily or by set-off) in a greater proportion than any such payment to and Collateral received by any other Lender, if any, in respect of such other Lender's Revolving Advances, or interest thereon, and such greater proportionate payment or receipt of Collateral is not expressly permitted hereunder, such benefitted Lender shall purchase for cash from the other Lenders such portion of each such other Lenders' Revolving Advances, or shall provide such other Lenders with the benefits of any such Collateral, or the proceeds thereof, as shall be necessary to cause such benefitted Lender to share the excess payment or benefits of such Collateral or proceeds ratably with each Lender; provided, however, that if all or any portion of such excess payment or -------- ------- benefits is thereafter recovered from such benefitted Lender, such purchase shall be rescinded, and the purchase price and benefits returned, to the extent of such recovery, but without interest. Each Lender so purchasing a portion of another lender's Revolving Advances may exercise all rights of payment (including, without limitation, rights of set-off) with respect to such portion as fully as if such Lender were the direct holder of such portion. (j) Unless Agent shall have been notified by telephone, confirmed in writing, by any Lender that such Lender will not make the amount which would constitute its applicable Commitment Percentage of the Revolving Advances available to Agent, Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) assume that such Lender shall make such amount available to Agent and, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to Borrower a corresponding amount. Agent will promptly notify Borrower of its receipt of any such notice from a Lender. If such amount is made available to Agent on a date after a Settlement Date, such Lender shall pay to Agent on demand an amount equal to the product of (i) the daily average Federal Funds Rate (computed on the basis of a year of 360 days) during such period as quoted by Agent, times (ii) such amount, times (iii) the number of days from and including such Settlement Date to the date on which such amount becomes immediately available to Agent. A certificate of Agent submitted to any Lender with respect to any amounts owing under this Subsection (d) shall be conclusive, in the absence of manifest error. If such amount is not in fact made available to Agent by such Lender within three (3) Business Days after such Settlement Date, Agent shall be entitled to recover such an amount, with interest thereon at the Revolving Interest Rate applicable to such Revolving Advances hereunder, on demand from Borrower; provided, however, that Agent's -------- ------- right to such recovery shall not prejudice or otherwise adversely affect Borrower's rights (if any) against such Lender. -17- 5. Interest and Fees. ----------------- (a) Interest. Interest on Revolving Advances shall be payable to -------- Agent for its benefit and for the benefit of Lenders in arrears on the first day of each month with respect to Domestic Rate Loans and, with respect to Eurodollar Rate Loans, at the end of each Interest Period or, for Eurodollar Rate Loans with an Interest Period in excess of three months, at the earlier of (a) each three months on the anniversary date of the commencement of such Eurodollar Rate Loan or (b) the end of the Interest Period. Interest charges shall be computed on the actual principal amount of Revolving Advances outstanding during the month at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Revolving Interest Rate. Whenever, subsequent to the date of this Agreement, the Alternate Base Rate is increased or decreased, the applicable Revolving Interest Rate for Domestic Rate Loans shall be similarly changed without notice or demand of any kind by an amount equal to the amount of such change in the Alternate Base Rate during the time such change or changes remain in effect. Upon and after the occurrence of an Event of Default, and during the continuation thereof, (i) the Obligations other than Eurodollar Rate Loans shall bear interest at the applicable Revolving Interest Rate for Domestic Loans plus two percent (2%) per annum and (ii) Eurodollar Rate Loans shall bear interest at the applicable Revolving Interest Rate for Eurodollar Dollar Loans plus two percent (2%) per annum (as applicable, the "Default Rate"). (b) Fees. ---- (i) Closing Fee. Upon the execution of this Agreement, ----------- Borrower shall pay to Agent for its benefit and for the ratable benefit of Lenders (who were Lenders on the Closing Date) a closing fee in an amount equal to $50,000, which amount shall be reduced by the commitment fee in the sum of $25,000 and the balance of the deposit fee in the sum of $25,000 remaining after deducting all fees and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable fees and disbursements of in-house and outside legal counsel) incurred by Agent in connection with the consummation of the Transactions. All amounts due with respect to the closing fee shall be charged to Borrower's account on the Closing Date. (ii) Unused Line Fee. In the event the average closing daily --------------- unpaid balances of all Revolving Advances hereunder during any calendar month is less than the Maximum Revolving Amount minus the minimum Undrawn Availability requirement set forth in Section 12(q) hereof, Borrower shall pay to Agent for the ratable benefit of Lenders a fee at a rate per annum equal to one half of one percent (.50%) on the amount by which the Maximum Revolving Amount exceeds such average daily unpaid balance. Such fee shall be calculated on the basis of a year of 360 days and actual days elapsed, and shall be charged to Borrower's account on the first day of each calendar quarter with respect to the prior quarter. (iii) Collateral Evaluation Fee. Borrower shall pay Agent a ------------------------- collateral evaluation fee equal to $1,500.00 per month commencing on the first day of the month following the Closing Date and on the first day of each month thereafter during the Term. The collateral evaluation fee shall be deemed earned in full on the date when same is due and payable -18- hereunder and shall not be subject to rebate or proration upon termination of this Agreement for any reason. (iv) Collateral Monitoring Fee. Upon Agent's performance of any ------------------------- collateral monitoring - namely any field examination, collateral analysis or other business analysis performed by any field examiner or auditor conducting such collateral monitoring, the need for which is to be determined by Agent and which monitoring is undertaken by Agent or for Agent's benefit, an amount equal to $700.00 per day, per person, for each person employed to perform such monitoring together with all costs, disbursements and expenses incurred by Agent and the person performing such collateral monitoring shall be charged to the applicable Borrower's account. (v) Annual Facility Fee. Borrower shall pay to Agent for its ------------------- own account, on each anniversary date of the Closing Date, an annual facility fee of $50,000 which shall be deemed earned in full on the date when same is due and payable hereunder and shall not be subject to rebate or proration upon termination of this Agreement for any reason. The Facility Fee shall be subject to reduction by an amount equal to $16,666.00 for each $1,000,000 in average outstanding Revolving Advances in excess of $2,500,000 for the preceding Contract Year. (vi) Minimum Loan Fee. If for any Contract Year, the average ---------------- daily unpaid balance of the Revolving Advances is less than $2,500,000 then as of the first Business Day of the next succeeding Contract Year or the last day of the third Contract Year, Borrower shall pay to Agent for its benefit and for the ratable benefit of the Lenders a fee equal to the product of (a) 2.5% times (b) such difference. (vii) Letter of Credit Fees. Borrower shall pay to Agent, for --------------------- the benefit of Lenders, fees for each Letter of Credit for the period from and excluding the date of issuance of same to and including the date of expiration or termination, equal to the average daily face amount of each outstanding Letter of Credit multiplied by two percent (2.00%) per annum, such fees to be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual number of days elapsed and to be payable monthly in arrears on the first day of each month and on the last day of the Term and (y) to the Issuer, any and all fees and expenses as agreed upon by the Issuer and Borrower in connection with any Letter of Credit, including, without limitation, in connection with the opening, amendment or renewal of any such Letter of Credit and shall reimburse Agent for any and all fees and expenses, if any, paid by Agent to the Issuer (all of the foregoing fees, the "Letter of Credit Fees"). All such charges shall be deemed earned in full on the date when the same are due and payable hereunder and shall not be subject to rebate or proration upon the termination of this Agreement for any reason. Any such charge in effect at the time of a particular transaction shall be the charge for that transaction, notwithstanding any subsequent change in the Issuer's prevailing charges for that type of transaction. All Letter of Credit Fees payable hereunder shall be deemed earned in full on the date when the same are due and payable hereunder and shall not be subject to rebate or proration upon the termination of this Agreement for any reason. -19- (c) Computation of Interest and Fees. Interest and fees hereunder -------------------------------- shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and for the actual number of days elapsed. If any payment to be made hereunder becomes due and payable on a day other than a Business Day, the due date thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day and interest thereon shall be payable at the applicable Revolving Interest Rate for Domestic Rate Loans during such extension. (d) Maximum Charges. In no event whatsoever shall interest and other --------------- charges charged hereunder exceed the highest rate permissible under law. In the event interest and other charges as computed hereunder would otherwise exceed the highest rate permitted under law, such excess amount shall be first applied to any unpaid principal balance owed by Borrower, and if the then remaining excess amount is greater than the previously unpaid principal balance, Lenders shall promptly refund such excess amount to Borrower and the provisions hereof shall be deemed amended to provide for such permissible rate. (e) Increased Costs. In the event that any applicable law, treaty or --------------- governmental regulation, or any change therein or in the interpretation or application thereof, or compliance by Agent or Lenders (for purposes of this Section 5(c), the term "Lender" shall include Agent or any Lender and any corporation or bank controlling Agent or any Lender) with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any central bank or other financial, monetary or other authority, shall: (i) subject Agent or any Lender to any tax of any kind whatsoever with respect to this Agreement or change the basis of taxation of payments to Agent or any Lender of principal, fees, interest or any other amount payable hereunder or under any Ancillary Agreements (except for changes in the rate of tax on the overall net income of Agent or any Lender by the jurisdiction in which it maintains its principal office); (ii) impose, modify or hold applicable any reserve, special deposit, assessment or similar requirement against assets held by, or deposits in or for the account of, advances or loans by, or other credit extended by, any office of Agent or any Lender, including (without limitation) pursuant to Regulation D of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System; or (iii) impose on Agent or any Lender any other condition with respect to this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreements; and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to Agent or any Lender of making, renewing or maintaining its Revolving Advances hereunder by an amount that Agent or any Lender deems to be material or to reduce the amount of any payment (whether of principal, interest or otherwise) in respect of any of the Revolving Advances by an amount that Agent or any Lender deems to be material, then, in any case Borrower shall promptly pay Agent, upon its demand, such additional amount as will compensate Agent and Agent or any Lenders for such additional cost or such reduction, as the case may be. Agent shall certify the amount of such additional cost or reduced amount to Borrower, and such certification shall be conclusive absent manifest error. -20- (f) Capital Adequacy. ---------------- (i) In the event that Agent or any Lender shall have determined that any applicable law, rule, regulation or guideline regarding capital adequacy, or any change therein, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any governmental authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by Agent or any Lender (for purposes of this Section 5(d), the term "Lender" shall include Agent or any Lender and any corporation or bank controlling Agent or any Lender) with any request or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on Agent's or any lender's capital as a consequence of its obligations hereunder to a level below that which Agent or such Lender could have achieved but for such adoption, change or compliance (taking into consideration Agent's and such lender's policies with respect to capital adequacy) by an amount deemed by Agent or such lender to be material, then, from time to time, Borrower shall pay upon demand to Agent such additional amount or amounts as will compensate Agent and Lenders for such reduction. In determining such amount or amounts, Agent may use any reasonable averaging or attribution methods. The protection of this Section shall be available to Agent or any Lender regardless of any possible contention of invalidity or inapplicability with respect to the applicable law, regulation or condition. (ii) A certificate of Agent setting forth such amount or amounts as shall be necessary to compensate Agent or any Lender with respect to Section 5(d)(i) hereof when delivered to Borrower shall be conclusive absent manifest error. (g) Basis for Determining Interest Rate Inadequate or Unfair. In the -------------------------------------------------------- event that Agent or any Lender shall have determined that: (i) reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Eurodollar Rate for any Interest Period; or (ii) Dollar deposits in the relevant amount and for the relevant maturity are not available in the London interbank Eurodollar market, with respect to an outstanding Eurodollar Rate Loan, a proposed Eurodollar Rate Loan, or a proposed conversion of a Domestic Rate Loan into a Eurodollar Rate Loan, then Agent shall give Borrower prompt written, telephonic or telegraphic notice of such determination. If such notice is given, (i) any such requested Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be made as a Domestic Rate Loan, unless Borrower shall notify Agent no later than 10:00 a.m. (New York City time) two (2) Business Days prior to the date of such proposed borrowing, that its request for such borrowing shall be cancelled or made as an unaffected type of Eurodollar Rate Loan, (ii) any Domestic Rate Loan or Eurodollar Rate Loan which was to have been converted to an affected type of Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be continued as or converted into a Domestic Rate Loan, or, if Borrower shall notify Agent, no later than 10:00 a.m. (New York City time) two (2) Business Days prior to the proposed conversion, shall be maintained as an -21- unaffected type of Eurodollar Rate Loan, and (iii) any outstanding affected Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be converted into a Domestic Rate Loan, or, if Borrower shall notify Agent, no later than 10:00 a.m. (New York City time) two (2) Business Days prior to the last Business Day of the then current Interest Period applicable to such affected Eurodollar Rate Loan, shall be converted into an unaffected type of Eurodollar Rate Loan, on the last Business Day of the then current Interest Period for such affected Eurodollar Rate Loans.

All corporate and other proceedings, and all ----- documents, instruments and other legal matters in connection with the Transactions shall be satisfactory in form and substance to Agent, Lenders and their counsel. (b) Conditions to Each Revolving Advance. The agreement of Lenders to ------------------------------------ make any Revolving Advance requested to be made on any date (including, without limitation, its initial Revolving Advance), is subject to the satisfaction of the following conditions precedent as of the date such Revolving Advance is made: (i) Representations and Warranties. Each of the representations ------------------------------ and warranties made by Borrower in or pursuant to this Agreement and any related agreements to which it is a party, and each of the representations and warranties contained in any certificate, document or financial or other statement furnished at any time under or in connection with this Agreement or any related agreement shall be true and correct in all material respects on and as of such date as if made on and as of such date; (ii) No Default. No Event of Default or Default shall have ---------- occurred and be continuing on such date, or would exist after giving effect to the Revolving Advances requested to be made, on such date; provided, however -------- ------- that Agent on behalf of Lenders in their sole discretion, may continue to make Revolving Advances notwithstanding the existence of an Event of Default or Default upon the written consent of Required Lenders and that any Revolving Advances so made shall not be deemed a waiver of any such Event of Default or Default; and (iii) Maximum Revolving Advances. In the case of any Revolving -------------------------- Advances requested to be made, after giving effect thereto, the aggregate Revolving Advances shall not exceed the lesser of (x) the Maximum Revolving Amount and (y) the Formula Amount. Each request for a Revolving Advance by Borrower hereunder shall constitute a representation and warranty by Borrower as of the date of such Revolving Advance that the conditions contained in this subsection shall have been satisfied. 14. Power of Attorney. Borrower hereby appoints Agent or any other Person ----------------- whom Agent may designate as Borrower's attorney, with power to: (i) endorse Borrower's name on any checks, notes, acceptances, money orders, drafts or other forms of payment or security that may come into Agent's possession; (ii) sign Borrower's name on any invoice or bill of lading relating to any Receivables, drafts against customers, schedules and assignments of Receivables, notices of assignment, financing statements and other public records, verifications of account and notices to or from customers; (iii) verify the validity, amount or any other matter relating to any -34- Receivable by mail, telephone, telegraph or otherwise with Customers; (iv) do all things necessary to carry out this Agreement and any Ancillary Agreement; and (v) on or after the occurrence and continuation of an Event of Default, notify the post office authorities to change the address for delivery of Borrower's mail to an address designated by Agent, and to receive, open and dispose of all mail addressed to Borrower. Borrower hereby ratifies and approves all acts of the attorney. Neither Agent nor the attorney will be liable for any acts or omissions or for any error of judgment or mistake of fact or law. This power, being coupled with an interest, is irrevocable so long as any Receivable which is assigned to Agent or in which Agent has a security interest remains unpaid and until the Obligations have been fully satisfied. 15. Expenses. Borrower shall pay all of Agent's and each Lender's out-of- -------- pocket costs and expenses, including without limitation reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel and appraisers, in connection with the preparation, execution and delivery of this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements, and in connection with the prosecution or defense of any action, contest, dispute, suit or proceeding concerning any matter in any way arising out of, related to or connected with this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement. Borrower shall also pay Agent's and each Lender's out-of-pocket costs and expenses, including without limitation reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel, in connection with (a) the preparation, execution and delivery of any waiver, any amendment thereto or consent proposed or executed in connection with the Transactions, (b) Agent's obtaining performance of the Obligations under this Agreement and any Ancillary Agreements, including, but not limited to, the enforcement or defense of Agent's security interests, assignments of rights and liens hereunder as valid perfected security interests, (c) any attempt to inspect, verify, protect, collect, sell, liquidate or otherwise dispose of any Collateral, and (d) any consultations in connection with any of the foregoing. Borrower shall also pay Agent's customary bank charges for all bank services performed or caused to be performed by Agent for Borrower at Borrower's request or on Borrower's behalf. All such costs and expenses together with all filing, recording and search fees, taxes and interest payable by Borrower to Agent shall be payable on demand and shall be secured by the Collateral. If any tax by any governmental authority is or may be imposed on or as a result of any transaction between Borrower and Agent which Agent is or may be required to withhold or pay, Borrower agrees to indemnify and hold Agent harmless in respect of such taxes, and Borrower will repay to Agent the amount of any such taxes which shall be charged to Borrower's account; and until Borrower shall furnish Agent with indemnity therefor (or supply Agent with evidence satisfactory to it that due provision for the payment thereof has been made), Agent may hold without interest any balance standing to Borrower's credit and Agent shall retain its security interests in any and all Collateral. 16. Successors and Assigns; Participations; New Lenders. (i) This --------------------------------------------------- Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of Borrower, Agent, each Lender, all future holders of the Revolving Credit Note and their respective successors and assigns, except that Borrower may not assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of Agent and each Lender. (ii) Borrower acknowledges that in the regular course of its commercial banking business one or more Lenders may at any time and from time to time sell -35- participating interests in the Revolving Advances to other financial institutions (each such purchaser of a participating interest, a "Transferee"). Each Transferee may exercise all rights of payment (including without limitation rights of set-off with respect to the portion of such Revolving Advances held by it or other Obligations payable hereunder as fully as if such Transferee were the direct holder thereof provided that Borrower shall not be required to pay to any Transferee more than the amount which it would have been required to pay to Lenders which granted an interest in its Revolving Advances or other Obligations payable hereunder to such Transferee had such Lender retained such interest in the Revolving Advances hereunder or other Obligations payable hereunder and in no event shall Borrower be required to pay any such amount arising from the same circumstances and with respect to the same Revolving Advances or other Obligations payable hereunder to both such Lender and such Transferee. Borrower hereby grants to any Transferee a continuing security interest in any deposits, moneys or other property actually or constructively held by such Transferee as security for the Transferee's interest in the Revolving Advances. (iii) Any Lender may sell, assign or transfer all or any part of its rights under this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements to one or more additional banks or financial institutions and one or more additional banks or financial institutions may commit to make Revolving Advances hereunder (each a "Purchasing Lender"), in minimum amounts of not less than $3,000,000, pursuant to a Commitment Transfer Supplement, executed by a Purchasing Lender, the transferor Lender, and Agent and delivered to Agent for recording. Upon such execution, delivery, acceptance and recording, from and after the transfer effective date determined pursuant to such Commitment Transfer Supplement, (i) Purchasing Lender thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent provided in such Commitment Transfer Supplement, have the rights and obligations of a Lender thereunder with a Commitment Percentage as set forth therein, and (ii) the transferor Lender thereunder shall, to the extent provided in such Commitment Transfer Supplement, be released from its obligations under this Agreement, the Commitment Transfer Supplement creating a novation for that purpose. Such Commitment Transfer Supplement shall be deemed to amend this Agreement to the extent, and only to the extent, necessary to reflect the addition of such Purchasing Lender and the resulting adjustment of the Commitment Percentages arising from the purchase by such Purchasing Lender of all or a portion of the rights and obligations of such transferor Lender under this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements. Borrower hereby consents to the addition of such Purchasing Lender and the resulting adjustment of the Commitment Percentages arising from the purchase by such Purchasing Lender of all or a portion of the rights and obligations of such transferor Lender under this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements. Borrower shall execute and deliver such further documents and do such further acts and things in order to effectuate the foregoing. (iv) Agent shall maintain at its address a copy of each Commitment Transfer Supplement delivered to it and a register (the "Register") for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Revolving Advances owing to each Lender from time to time. The entries in the Register shall be conclusive, in the absence of manifest error, and Borrower, Agent and Lenders may treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register as the owner of the Revolving Advance recorded therein for the purposes of this Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by Borrower or any Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time -36- upon reasonable prior notice. Agent shall receive a fee in the amount of $3,000 payable by the applicable Purchasing Lender upon the effective date of each transfer or assignment to such Purchasing Lender. (v) Borrower authorizes each Lender to disclose to any Transferee or Purchasing Lender and any prospective Transferee or Purchasing Lender any and all financial information in such Lender's possession concerning Borrower which has been delivered to such Lender by or on behalf of Borrower pursuant to this Agreement or in connection with such Lender's credit evaluation of Borrower. 17. Waivers. Borrower waives presentment and protest of any instrument and ------- notice thereof, notice of default and all other notices to which Borrower might otherwise be entitled. 18. Term of Agreement. This Agreement shall continue in full force and ----------------- effect until the expiration of the Term. Borrower may terminate this Agreement at any time upon ninety (90) days' prior written notice upon payment in full of the Obligations. In the event that the Obligations are prepaid in full prior to eighteen months from the Closing Date (the "Prepayment Period"), Borrower shall pay an early termination fee in an amount equal to three percent (3%) of the Maximum Revolving Amount. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that the Obligations are prepaid in full prior to the expiration of the Prepayment Period solely as a result of the occurrence and declaration of an Event of Default under Section 19(vii) or (xiv) and the acceleration of the Obligations in connection therewith, Borrower shall not be obligated to pay an early termination fee hereunder. 19. Events of Default. The occurrence of any of the following shall ----------------- constitute an Event of Default: (i) failure to make payment of any of the Obligations when required hereunder; (ii) failure to pay any taxes when due unless such taxes are being contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings and with respect to which adequate reserves have been provided on Borrower's books; (iii) (a) failure of Borrower to perform, keep or observe any term, provision, condition or covenant contained in Sections 11, 12(f)(i) or 12(m)(i) hereof which is not cured within fifteen (15) days from the occurrence of such failure or (b) failure of Borrower to perform under and/or committing any breach of any other term, provision, condition or covenant contained in this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement or any other agreement between Borrower, Agent and any Lender. (iv) occurrence of a default under any agreement to which Borrower or Realty is a party with third parties which has a material adverse affect upon Borrower's or Realty's business, operations, property or condition (financial or otherwise) all leases for any premises where Borrower's books and records are located; -37- (v) any representation, warranty or statement made by Borrower hereunder, in any Ancillary Agreement, any certificate, statement or document delivered pursuant to the terms hereof, or in connection with the Transactions should at any time be false or misleading in any material respect; (vi) an attachment or levy is made upon Borrower's assets having an aggregate value in excess of $100,000, or a judgment is rendered against Borrower or any of Borrower's property involving a liability of more than $100,000, which shall not have been vacated, discharged, stayed or bonded pending appeal within thirty (30) days from the entry thereof; (vii) any change in Borrower's condition or affairs (financial or otherwise) which in Agent's opinion impairs the Collateral or the ability of any Borrower to perform its Obligations; (viii) any lien created hereunder or under any Ancillary Agreement for any reason ceases to be or is not a valid and perfected lien having a first priority interest; (ix) if Borrower shall (i) apply for or consent to the appointment of, or the taking of possession by, a receiver, custodian, trustee or liquidator of itself or of all or a substantial part of its property, (ii) make a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, (iii) commence a voluntary case under the federal bankruptcy laws (as now or hereafter in effect), (iv) be adjudicated a bankrupt or insolvent, (v) file a petition seeking to take advantage of any other law providing for the relief of debtors, (vi) acquiesce to, or fail to have dismissed, within thirty (30) days, (x) any petition filed against it in any involuntary case under such bankruptcy laws, or (y) any proceeding or petition seeking the appointment of a receiver, custodian, trustee or liquidator of itself or all or a substantial part of its property, or (vii) take any action for the purpose of effecting any of the foregoing; (x) Borrower shall admit in writing its inability, or be generally unable to pay its debts as they become due or cease operations of its present business; (xi) any Affiliate or any Subsidiary shall (i) apply for or consent to the appointment of, or the taking possession by, a receiver, custodian, trustee or liquidator of itself or of all or a substantial part of its property, (ii) admit in writing its inability, or be generally unable, to pay its debts as they become due or cease operations of its present business, (iii) make a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, (iv) commence a voluntary case under the federal bankruptcy laws (as now or hereafter in effect), (v) be adjudicated a bankrupt or insolvent, (vi) file a petition seeking to take advantage of any other law providing for the relief of debtors, (vii) acquiesce to, or fail to have dismissed, within thirty (30) days, (x) any petition filed against it in any involuntary case under such bankruptcy laws, or (y) any proceeding or petition seeking the appointment of a receiver, custodian, trustee or liquidator of itself or all or a substantial part of its property or (viii) take any action for the purpose of effecting any of the foregoing; (xii) Borrower directly or indirectly sells, assigns, transfers, conveys, or suffers or permits to occur any sale, assignment, transfer or conveyance of any assets of -38- Borrower or any interest therein, except for the sale of Equipment provided, -------- that such sale could not reasonably be expected to have a material adverse affect upon Borrower's business operations, property or condition (financial or otherwise); (xiii) Borrower fails to operate in the ordinary course of business; (xiv) Agent or any Lender shall in good faith deem itself insecure or unsafe or shall fear diminution in value, removal or waste of the Collateral; (xv) a default by Borrower or Realty in the payment, when due, of any principal of or interest on any indebtedness for money borrowed in excess of $100,000 if such default results in the acceleration of such indebtedness; or (xvi) any Change of Ownership. 20. Remedies. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default pursuant to -------- Section l9(ix) herein, all Obligations shall be immediately due and payable and this Agreement shall be deemed terminated; upon the occurrence and continuation of any other of the Events of Default, Agent shall have the right to demand repayment in full of all Obligations, whether or not otherwise due. Until all Obligations have been fully satisfied, Agent shall retain its security interest in all Collateral. Agent shall have, in addition to all other rights provided herein, the rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code, and under other applicable law, all other legal and equitable rights to which Agent may be entitled, including without limitation, the right to take immediate possession of the Collateral, to require Borrower to assemble the Collateral, at Borrower's expense, and to make it available to Agent at a place designated by Agent which is reasonably convenient to both parties and to enter any of the premises of Borrower or wherever the Collateral shall be located, with or without force or process of law, and to keep and store the same on said premises until sold (and if said premises be the property of Borrower, Borrower agrees not to charge Agent or Lenders for storage thereof for a period up to at least sixty (60) days after sale or disposition of said Collateral). Further, Agent may, at any time or times after default by Borrower, sell and deliver all Collateral held by or for Agent at public or private sale for cash, upon credit or otherwise, at such prices and upon such terms as Agent, in Agent's sole discretion, deems advisable or Agent may otherwise recover upon the Collateral in any commercially reasonable manner as Agent, in its sole discretion, deems advisable. Except as to that part of the Collateral which is perishable or threatens to decline speedily in nature or is of a type customarily sold on a recognized market, the requirement of reasonable notice shall be met if such notice is mailed postage prepaid to Borrower at Borrower's address as shown in Agent's records, at least ten (10) days before the time of the event of which notice is being given. Agent may be the purchaser at any sale, if it is public. In connection with the exercise of the foregoing remedies, Agent is granted permission to use all of Borrower's trademarks, tradenames, tradestyles, patents, patent applications, licenses, franchises and other proprietary rights which are used in connection with Inventory for the purpose of disposing of such Inventory. The proceeds of sale shall be applied first to all costs and expenses of sale, including reasonable attorneys' fees, and second to the payment (in whatever order Agent elects) of all Obligations. Agent and Lenders will return any excess to -39- Borrower or as otherwise required by law and Borrower shall remain liable to Agent and Lenders for any deficiency. 21. Waiver; Cumulative Remedies. Failure by Agent or Lenders to exercise --------------------------- any right, remedy or option under this Agreement or any supplement hereto or any other agreement between Borrower, Agent and any Lender or delay by Agent or any Lender in exercising the same, will not operate as a waiver; no waiver by Agent or Lenders will be effective unless it is in writing and then only to the extent specifically stated. Agent and Lenders' rights and remedies under this Agreement will be cumulative and not exclusive of any other right or remedy which Agent or Lenders may have. 22. Application of Payments. Borrower irrevocably waives the right to ----------------------- direct the application of any and all payments at any time or times hereafter received by Agent or Lenders from or on Borrower's behalf and Borrower hereby irrevocably agrees that Agent shall have the continuing exclusive right to apply and reapply any and all payments received at any time or times hereafter against Borrower's Obligations hereunder in such manner as Agent may deem advisable notwithstanding any entry by Agent upon any of Agent's books and records. 23. Establishment of a Lockbox Account, Dominion Account. All proceeds of ---------------------------------------------------- Collateral shall, at the direction of Agent, be deposited by Borrower into a lockbox account, dominion account or such other "blocked account" ("Blocked Accounts") as Agent may require pursuant to an arrangement with the Bank. Borrower shall issue to the Bank, an irrevocable letter of instruction directing said bank to transfer such funds so deposited to Agent, either to any account maintained by Agent at said bank or by wire transfer to appropriate account(s) of Agent. All funds deposited in such Blocked Account shall immediately become the property of Agent and Borrower shall obtain the agreement by the Bank to waive any offset rights against the funds so deposited. Agent assumes no responsibility for such Blocked Account arrangement, including without limitation, any claim of accord and satisfaction or release with respect to deposits accepted by any bank thereunder. Alternatively, Agent may establish depository accounts ("Depository Accounts") in the name of Agent at a bank or banks for the deposit of such funds and Borrower shall deposit all proceeds of Collateral or cause same to be deposited, in kind, in such Depository Accounts of Agent in lieu of depositing same to the Blocked Accounts. 24. Revival. Borrower further agrees that to the extent Borrower makes a ------- payment or payments to Agent, which payment or payments or any part thereof are subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside and/or required to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party under any bankruptcy act, state or federal law, common law or equitable cause, then, to the extent of such payment or repayment, the obligation or part thereof intended to be satisfied shall be revived and continued in full force and effect as if said payment had not been made. 25. Regarding Agent. --------------- (i) Appointment. Each Lender hereby designates IBJS to act as ----------- Agent for such Lender under this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements. Each Lender hereby irrevocably authorizes Agent to take such action on its behalf under the provisions of this -40- Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements and to exercise such powers and to perform such duties hereunder and thereunder as are specifically delegated to or required of Agent by the terms hereof and thereof and such other powers as are reasonably incidental thereto and Agent shall hold all Collateral, payments of principal and interest, fees (except the fees set forth in Sections 5(b)(iii), 5(b)(iv) and 5(b)(v), charges and collections (without giving effect to any collection days) received pursuant to this Agreement, for the ratable benefit of Lenders. Agent may perform any of its duties hereunder by or through its agents or employees. As to any matters not expressly provided for by this Agreement (including without limitation, collection of the Note) Agent shall not be required to exercise any discretion or take any action, but shall be required to act or to refrain from acting (and shall be fully protected in so acting or refraining from acting) upon the instructions of the Required Lenders, and such instructions shall be binding; provided, however, that Agent shall not be -------- ------- required to take any action which exposes Agent to liability or which is contrary to this Agreement or the Ancillary Agreements or applicable law unless Agent is furnished with an indemnification reasonably satisfactory to Agent with respect thereto. (ii) Nature of Duties. Agent shall have no duties or ---------------- responsibilities except those expressly set forth in this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements. Neither Agent nor any of its officers, directors, employees or agents shall be (i) liable for any action taken or omitted by them as such hereunder or in connection herewith, unless caused by their gross negligence (but not mere negligence) or willful misconduct, or (ii) responsible in any manner for any recitals, statements, representations or warranties made by Borrower or any officer thereof contained in this Agreement, or in any of the Ancillary Agreements or in any certificate, report, statement or other document referred to or provided for in, or received by Agent under or in connection with, this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Agreements or for the value, validity, effectiveness, genuineness, enforceability or sufficiency of this Agreement, or any of the Ancillary Agreements or for any failure of Borrower to perform its obligations hereunder. Agent shall not be under any obligation to any Lender to ascertain or to inquire as to the observance or performance of any of the agreements contained in, or conditions of, this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Agreements, or to inspect the properties, books or records of Borrower. The duties of Agent as respects the Revolving Advances to Borrower shall be mechanical and administrative in nature; Agent shall not have by reason of this Agreement a fiduciary relationship in respect of any Lender; and nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, is intended to or shall be so construed as to impose upon Agent any obligations in respect of this Agreement except as expressly set forth herein. (iii) Lack of Reliance on Agent and Resignation. Independently ----------------------------------------- and without reliance upon Agent or any other Lender, each Lender has made and shall continue to make (i) its own independent investigation of the financial condition and affairs of Borrower in connection with the making and the continuance of the Revolving Advances hereunder and the taking or not taking of any action in connection herewith, and (ii) its own appraisal of the creditworthiness of Borrower. Agent shall have no duty or responsibility, either initially or on a continuing basis, to provide any Lender with any credit or other information with respect thereto, whether coming into its possession before making of the Revolving Advances or at any time or times thereafter except as shall be provided by Borrower pursuant to the terms hereof. Agent -41- shall not be responsible to any Lender for any recitals, statements, information, representations or warranties herein or in any agreement, document, certificate or a statement delivered in connection with or for the execution, effectiveness, genuineness, validity, enforceability, collectability or sufficiency of this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement, or of the financial condition of Borrower, or be required to make any inquiry concerning either the performance of observance of any of the terms, provisions or conditions of this Agreement, the Revolving Credit Note, the Ancillary Agreements or the financial condition of any Borrower, or the existence of any Event of Default or any Default. Agent may resign on sixty (60) days' written notice to each of Lenders and Borrower and upon such resignation, the Required Lenders will promptly designate a successor Agent reasonably satisfactory to Borrower. Any such successor Agent shall succeed to the rights, powers and duties of Agent, and the term "Agent" shall mean such successor agent effective upon its appointment, and the former Agent's rights, powers and duties as Agent shall be terminated, without any other or further act or deed on the part of such former Agent. After any Agent's resignation as Agent, the provisions of this Section 25 shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was Agent under this Agreement. (iv) Certain Rights of Agent. If Agent shall request ----------------------- instructions from Lenders with respect to any act or action (including failure to act) in connection with this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement, Agent shall be entitled to refrain from such act or taking such action unless and until Agent shall have received instructions from the Required Lenders; and Agent shall not incur liability to any Person by reason of so refraining. Without limiting the foregoing, Lenders shall not have any right of action whatsoever against Agent as a result of its acting or refraining from acting hereunder in accordance with the instructions of the Required Lenders. (v) Reliance. Agent shall be entitled to rely, and shall be -------- fully protected in relying, upon any note, writing, resolution, notice, statement, certificate, telex, teletype or telecopier message, cablegram, order or other document or telephone message believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed, sent or made by the proper person or entity, and, with respect to all legal matters pertaining to this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements and its duties hereunder, upon advice of counsel selected by it. Agent may employ agents and attorneys-in-fact and shall not be liable for the default or misconduct of any such agents or attorneys-in-fact selected by Agent with reasonable care. (vi) Notice of Default. Agent shall not be deemed to have ----------------- knowledge or notice of the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default hereunder or under the Ancillary Agreements, unless Agent has received notice from a Lender or Borrower referring to this Agreement or the Ancillary Agreements, describing such Default or Event of Default and stating that such notice is a "notice of default". In the event that Agent receives such a notice, Agent shall give notice thereof to Lenders. Agent shall take such action with respect to such Default or Event of Default as shall be reasonably directed by the Required Lenders; provided, that, unless -------- ---- -42- and until Agent shall have received such directions, 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 in the best interests of Lenders. (vii) Indemnification. To the extent Agent is not reimbursed and --------------- indemnified by Borrower, each Lender will reimburse and indemnify Agent in proportion to its respective portion of the Revolving Advances (or, if no Revolving Advances are outstanding, according to its Commitment Percentage), from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against Agent in performing its duties hereunder, or in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement; provided that, Lenders -------- ---- shall not be liable for any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting from Agent's gross negligence (but not mere negligence) or willful misconduct. (viii) Agent in its Individual Capacity. With respect to the -------------------------------- obligation of Agent to lend under this Agreement, the Revolving Advances made by it shall have the same rights and powers hereunder as any other Lender and as if it were not performing the duties as Agent specified herein; and the term "Lender" or any similar term shall, unless the context clearly otherwise indicates, include Agent in its individual capacity as a Lender. Agent may engage in business with Borrower as if it were not performing the duties specified herein, and may accept fees and other consideration from Borrower for services in connection with this Agreement or otherwise without having to account for the same to Lenders. (ix) Delivery of Documents. To the extent Agent receives --------------------- financial statements from Borrower pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, Agent will promptly furnish such financial statements to Lenders. (x) Borrower's Undertaking to Agent. Without prejudice to its ------------------------------- obligations to Agent or Lenders under the other provisions of this Agreement, Borrower hereby undertakes with Agent to pay to Agent from time to time on demand all amounts from time to time due and payable by it for the account of Agent or Lenders or any of them pursuant to this Agreement to the extent not already paid. Any payment made pursuant to any such demand shall pro tanto --- ----- satisfy the Borrower's obligations to make payments for the account of Lenders or the relevant one or more of them pursuant to this Agreement. 26.
