(c)                                  Lender Acceptance.  Upon receipt of a Discounted Prepayment Option Notice, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Term Lender thereof.  On or prior to the Acceptance Date, each such Lender may specify by written notice (each, a “Lender Participation Notice”), it being understood that a Lender may deliver more than one Lender Participation Notice, and that each such Lender Participation Notice of such Lender shall constitute an independent and unconditional offer, and no such Lender Participation Notice may be contingent on the making of any prepayment with respect to the Offered Loans (defined below) in respect of any other Lender Participation Notice, or otherwise be contingent or conditional in any way, to the Administrative Agent setting forth (i) a maximum acceptable discount to par (the “Acceptable Discount”) within the Discount Range (for example, a Lender specifying a discount to par of 20% would accept a purchase price of 80% of the par value of the portion of the Term Loans to be prepaid) and (ii) a maximum principal amount (subject to rounding requirements specified by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower) of the Term Loans held by such Lender with respect to which such Lender is willing to permit a Discounted Voluntary Prepayment at the Acceptable Discount (“Offered Loans”).  Based on the Acceptable Discounts and principal amounts of the Offered Loans, the Administrative Agent, in consultation with the Borrower, shall determine the applicable discount for the portion of the Term Loans to be prepaid (the “Applicable Discount”), which Applicable Discount shall be (y) the percentage specified by the Borrower if such Borrower has selected a single percentage pursuant to Section 2.17(b) for the Discounted Voluntary Prepayment or (z) otherwise, the highest Acceptable Discount at which the Borrower can prepay Offered Loans in a principal amount at least equal to the Proposed Discounted Prepayment Amount (determined by adding the principal amounts of Offered Loans commencing with the Offered Loans with the highest Acceptable Discount); provided, however, that in the event that less than the Proposed Discounted Prepayment Amount can be prepaid at any Acceptable Discount, the Applicable Discount shall be the lowest Acceptable Discount specified by the Lenders that is within the Discount Range.  The Applicable Discount shall be applicable for all Lenders who have offered to participate in the Discounted Voluntary Prepayment and have Qualifying Loans (as defined below).  Any Lender whose Lender Participation Notice is not received by the Administrative Agent by the Acceptance Date shall be deemed to have declined to accept a Discounted Voluntary Prepayment of its portion of the Term Loans at any discount to their par value within the Discount Range.

 



 

(d)                                 Allocation.  The Borrower shall make a Discounted Voluntary Prepayment by prepaying the portion of the Term Loans to be prepaid (or the respective portions thereof) offered by the Lenders (“Qualifying Lenders”) that specify an Acceptable Discount that is equal to or greater than the Applicable Discount (“Qualifying Loans”) at the Applicable Discount, provided that if the aggregate proceeds required to prepay all Qualifying Loans (disregarding any interest payable at such time) would exceed the amount of aggregate proceeds required to prepay the Proposed Discounted Prepayment Amount, such amounts in each case calculated by applying the Applicable Discount, the Borrower shall prepay such Qualifying Loans ratably among the Qualifying Lenders based on their respective principal amounts (subject to rounding requirements specified by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower).  If the aggregate proceeds required to prepay all Qualifying Loans (disregarding any interest payable at such time) would be less than or equal to the amount of aggregate proceeds required to prepay the Proposed Discounted Prepayment Amount, such amounts in each case calculated by applying the Applicable Discount, the Borrower shall prepay all Qualifying Loans.

 

(e)                                  Payment Mechanics.  Each Discounted Voluntary Prepayment shall be made within 10 Business Days of the Acceptance Date (or such later date as the Administrative Agent shall reasonably agree, given the time required to calculate the Applicable Discount and determine the amount and holders of Qualifying Loans), without premium or penalty, upon irrevocable notice (each a “Discounted Voluntary Prepayment Notice”), delivered to the Administrative Agent no later than 12:00 p.m., 3 Business Days prior to the date of such Discounted Voluntary Prepayment, which notice shall specify the date of the Discounted Voluntary Prepayment, the principal amount of the Qualifying Loans to be prepaid and the Applicable Discount determined by the Administrative Agent.  Upon receipt of any Discounted Voluntary Prepayment Notice, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each relevant Lender thereof.  If any Discounted Voluntary Prepayment Notice is given, the amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable to the applicable Lenders, subject to the Applicable Discount, on the applicable portion of the Qualifying Loans, on the date specified therein together with accrued interest (on the par principal amount) to but not including such date on the amount prepaid.  The par principal amount of each Discounted Voluntary Prepayment of the Term Loans shall be applied ratably to reduce the remaining installments of such Term Loans.

 

(f)                                   Additional Procedures.  To the extent not expressly provided for herein, each Discounted Voluntary Prepayment shall be consummated pursuant to reasonable procedures (including as to timing, rounding, minimum amounts, Type and Interest Periods and calculation of Applicable Discount in accordance with Section 2.17(b) above) established by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower.

 

(y)                                 Article V of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended by adding a new Section 5.27 to read in full as follows:

THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

 

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