12.15    Credit Bidding. Each of the Secured Parties hereby irrevocably authorizes the Administrative Agent, at the direction of the Majority Lenders, to credit bid all or any portion of the Obligations (including by accepting some or all of the Collateral in satisfaction of some or all of the Obligations pursuant to a deed in lieu of foreclosure or otherwise) and, in such manner, purchase (either directly or through one or more acquisition vehicles) all or any portion of the Collateral (a) at any sale thereof conducted under the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, including under Sections 363, 1123 or 1129 of the Bankruptcy Code, or any similar laws in any other jurisdictions to which a Credit Party is subject, or (b) at any other sale, foreclosure or acceptance of collateral in lieu of debt conducted by (or with the consent or at the direction of) the Administrative Agent (whether by judicial action or otherwise) in accordance with any applicable law. In connection with any such credit bid and purchase, the Obligations owed to the Secured Parties shall be entitled to be, and shall be, credit bid by the Administrative Agent at the direction of the Majority Lenders on a ratable basis (with the Obligations with respect to contingent or unliquidated claims receiving contingent interests in the acquired assets on a ratable basis that shall vest upon the liquidation of such claims in an amount proportional to the liquidated portion of the contingent claim amount used in allocating the contingent interests) for the asset or assets so purchased (or for the equity interests or debt instruments of the acquisition vehicle or vehicles that are issued in connection with such purchase). In connection with any such bid, (i) the Administrative Agent shall be authorized to form one or more acquisition vehicles



6




and to assign any successful credit bid to such acquisition vehicle or vehicles, (ii) each of the Secured Parties’ ratable interests in the Obligations which were credit bid shall be deemed without any further action under this Agreement to be assigned to such vehicle or vehicles for the purpose of closing such sale, (iii) the Administrative Agent shall be authorized to adopt documents providing for the governance of the acquisition vehicle or vehicles (provided that any actions by the Administrative Agent with respect to such acquisition vehicle or vehicles, including any disposition of the assets or equity interests thereof, shall be governed, directly or indirectly, by, and the governing documents shall provide for, control by the vote of the Majority Lenders or their permitted assignees under the terms of this Agreement or the governing documents of the applicable acquisition vehicle or vehicles, as the case may be, irrespective of the termination of this Agreement and without giving effect to the limitations on actions by the Majority Lenders contained in Section 13.1 of this Agreement), (iv) the Administrative Agent on behalf of such acquisition vehicle or vehicles shall be authorized to issue to each of the Secured Parties, ratably on account of the relevant Obligations which were credit bid, interests, whether as equity, partnership interests, limited partnership interests or membership interests, in any such acquisition vehicle and/or debt instruments issued by such acquisition vehicle, all without the need for any Secured Party or acquisition vehicle to take any further action, and (v) to the extent that the Obligations that are assigned to an acquisition vehicle are not used to acquire Collateral for any reason (as a result of another bid being higher or better, because the amount of the Obligations assigned to the acquisition vehicle exceeds the amount of the Obligations credit bid by the acquisition vehicle or otherwise), such Obligations shall automatically be reassigned to the Secured Parties pro rata with their original interest in such Obligations and the equity interests and/or debt instruments issued by any acquisition vehicle on account of such Obligations shall automatically be cancelled, without the need for any Secured Party or any acquisition vehicle to take any further action. Notwithstanding that the ratable portion of the Obligations of each Secured Party are deemed assigned to the acquisition vehicle or vehicles as set forth in clause (ii) above, each Secured Party shall execute such documents and provide such information regarding the Secured Party (and/or any designee of the Secured Party which will receive interests in or debt instruments issued by such acquisition vehicle) as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request in connection with the formation of any acquisition vehicle, the formulation or submission of any credit bid or the consummation of the transactions contemplated by such credit bid.
1.12Amendment to Section 13 of the Credit Agreement. Section 13 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended by adding a new Section 13.28 immediately following Section 13.27 of the Credit Agreement, which new Section 13.28 shall read in full as follows:

13.28    Acknowledgement Regarding Any Supported QFCs.    To the extent that the Credit Documents provide support, through a guarantee or otherwise, for any Hedge Agreement or any other agreement or instrument that is a QFC (such support, “QFC Credit Support”, and each such QFC, a “Supported QFC”), the parties acknowledge and agree as follows with respect to the resolution power of



7




the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation under the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and Title II of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (together with the regulations promulgated thereunder, the “U.S. Special Resolution Regimes”) in respect of such Supported QFC and QFC Credit Support (with the provisions below applicable notwithstanding that the Credit Documents and any Supported QFC may in fact be stated to be governed by the laws of the State of New York and/or of the United States or any other state of the United States):
In the event a Covered Entity that is party to a Supported QFC (each, a “Covered Party”) becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, the transfer of such Supported QFC and the benefit of such QFC Credit Support (and any interest and obligation in or under such Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support, and any rights in property securing such Supported QFC or such QFC Credit Support) from such Covered Party will be effective to the same extent as the transfer would be effective under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support (and any such interest, obligation and rights in property) were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States. In the event a Covered Party or a BHC Act Affiliate of a Covered Party becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, Default Rights under the Credit Documents that might otherwise apply to such Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support that may be exercised against such Covered Party are permitted to be exercised to no greater extent than such Default Rights could be exercised under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and the Credit Documents were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States. Without limitation of the foregoing, it is understood and agreed that rights and remedies of the parties with respect to a Defaulting Lender shall in no event affect the rights of any Covered Party with respect to a Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support.
Section 2.Borrowing Base Redetermination. In reliance on the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements contained in this Eighth Amendment, and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions precedent set forth in Section 3 hereof, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders party hereto hereby agree that the Borrowing Base of $615,000,000 is hereby reaffirmed, and the Borrowing Base shall remain at $615,000,000 until the next Scheduled Redetermination, Interim Redetermination or other adjustment to the Borrowing Base thereafter, whichever occurs first pursuant to the Credit Agreement. The redetermination of the Borrowing Base provided for in this Section 2 shall be deemed to be the Scheduled Redetermination scheduled for on or about May 1, 2020 for purposes of Section 2.14 of the Credit Agreement.

Section 3.Condition Precedent to Eighth Amendment. The amendments to the Credit Agreement contained in Section 1 hereof and the reaffirmation of the Borrowing Base set forth in Section 2 shall each be effective on the Eighth Amendment Effective Date, subject to the satisfaction (or waiver) of the Administrative Agent having received (a) counterparts hereof duly executed by an Authorized Officer of the Borrower and the Guarantors and (b) executed counterparts of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders constituting the Required Lenders.




8




Each Lender, by delivering its signature page to this Eighth Amendment, shall be deemed to have acknowledged receipt of, and consented to and approved, this Eighth Amendment and each other document, agreement and/or instrument or other matter required to be approved by Lenders on the Eighth Amendment Effective Date. The Administrative Agent is hereby authorized and directed to declare the amendments in Section 1 hereof to be effective on the date it confirms to the Borrower in writing that the foregoing conditions have been met to the reasonable satisfaction of Administrative Agent (or the waiver of such conditions as permitted hereby). Such declaration shall be final, conclusive and binding upon the Lenders and all other parties to the Credit Agreement for all purposes.
Section 4.Representations and Warranties. To induce the Lenders and Administrative Agent to enter into this Eighth Amendment, each Credit Party hereby represents and warrants to Lenders and Administrative Agent as follows as of the Eighth Amendment Effective Date:

4.1Reaffirm Existing Representations and Warranties. Each representation and warranty of such Credit Party contained in the Credit Agreement and the other Credit Documents to which it is a party is true and correct in all material respects (unless such representations and warranties are already qualified by materiality, Material Adverse Effect or a similar qualification in which case such representations and warranties shall be true and correct in all respects) with the same effect as though each such representation and warranty had been made on and as of the Eighth Amendment Effective Date (except where any such representation and warranty expressly relates to an earlier date, in which case each such representation and warranty shall have been true and correct in all material respects as of such earlier date).

4.2Due Authorization. The execution, delivery and performance by such Credit Party of this Eighth Amendment are within such Credit Party’s corporate, limited liability, limited partnership or other organizational powers, have been duly authorized by all necessary action, and require no action by or in respect of, or filing with, any governmental body, agency or official.

4.3Validity and Enforceability. This Eighth Amendment constitutes the valid and binding obligation of such Credit Party enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as (a) the enforceability thereof may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency or similar laws affecting creditor’s rights generally, and (b) the availability of equitable remedies may be limited by equitable principles of general application.

4.4No Defense. (a) Borrower acknowledges that Borrower has no defense to Borrower’s obligation to pay the Obligations when due, and (b) each Credit Party acknowledges that such Credit Party has no defense to the validity, enforceability or binding effect against such Credit Party of any of the Credit Documents to which it is a party or any Liens intended to be created thereby.

Section 5.Miscellaneous.

5.1.No Waivers. No failure or delay on the part of Administrative Agent or Lenders to exercise any right or remedy under the Credit Agreement, any other Credit Documents or applicable law shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or remedy preclude any other or further exercise of any right or remedy, all of which are cumulative



9




and may be exercised without notice except to the extent notice is expressly required (and has not been waived) under the Credit Agreement, the other Credit Documents and applicable law.

5.2.Reaffirmation of Credit Documents. Any and all of the terms and provisions of the Credit Agreement and the other Credit Documents shall remain in full force and effect as amended and modified hereby. The amendments contemplated hereby shall not limit or impair any Liens securing the Obligations nor limit or impair any guarantees of any Guarantor under the Credit Documents, each of which are hereby ratified, affirmed and extended to secure the Obligations.

5.3.Legal Expenses. Borrower hereby agrees to pay on demand all reasonable fees and expenses of counsel to Administrative Agent incurred by Administrative Agent in connection with the preparation, negotiation and execution of this Eighth Amendment and all related documents.

5.4.Parties in Interest. All of the terms and provisions of this Eighth Amendment shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties to the Credit Agreement and the other Credit Documents and their respective successors and assigns.

5.5.Counterparts. This Eighth Amendment may be executed in counterparts (including, without limitation, by electronic signature), and all parties need not execute the same counterpart; however, no party shall be bound by this Eighth Amendment until Borrower, the Guarantors, the Administrative Agent and Lenders constituting the Required Lenders have executed a counterpart. Facsimiles and counterparts executed by electronic signature (e.g., .pdf) shall be effective as originals.

5.6.Complete Agreement. THIS EIGHTH AMENDMENT, THE CREDIT AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER CREDIT DOCUMENTS REPRESENT THE FINAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND MAY NOT BE CONTRADICTED BY EVIDENCE OF PRIOR, CONTEMPORANEOUS OR ORAL AGREEMENTS OF THE PARTIES. THERE ARE NO UNWRITTEN ORAL AGREEMENTS BETWEEN OR AMONG THE PARTIES.

5.7.Headings. The headings, captions and arrangements used in this Eighth Amendment are, unless specified otherwise, for convenience only and shall not be deemed to limit, amplify or modify the terms of this Eighth Amendment, nor affect the meaning thereof.

5.8.Governing Law. THIS EIGHTH AMENDMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

5.9.Severability. Any provision of this Eighth Amendment which is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions hereof, and any such prohibition or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.
