LOAN AGREEMENT
PREAMBLE
THIS LOAN AGREEMENT (including all Appendices, Schedules and Exhibits hereto, this “Agreement”) is made as of April 27, 2022, by and among SDC U.S. SMILEPAY SPV, a Delaware statutory trust (the “Borrower”), SMILEDIRECTCLUB, LLC, a Tennessee limited liability company, as the Seller (the “Seller”) and initial Servicer (in such capacity, the “Servicer”), HPS Investment Partners, LLC, as the collateral agent (in such capacity, the “Collateral Agent”), HPS Investment Partners, LLC, as the administrative agent (in such capacity, the “Administrative Agent”), and the financial institutions party hereto from time to time (the “Lenders”). Unless otherwise indicated, capitalized definitional terms used in this Agreement are defined in, and this Agreement shall be interpreted in accordance with, the provisions of Appendix A.
BACKGROUND
1.    On and after the Closing Date, the Borrower intends to purchase Receivables from the Seller in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Agreement.
2.    The Borrower has requested that the Lenders extend credit in the form of Loans during the Commitment Period in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $255,000,000 and the Lenders are willing to extend such credit to the Borrower, on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein.
3.    In order to secure its obligation to repay the Loans and its other Obligations arising hereunder, the Borrower shall pledge to the Collateral Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, the Collateral identified in this Agreement and in the Transaction Documents.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual agreements herein contained, the parties hereto agree as follows:
ARTICLE I

LOANS

Section 1.01Loans. During the Commitment Period and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each Lender, severally and not jointly, agrees to make term loans in U.S. Dollars to the Borrower in an amount not to exceed the amount of such Lender’s unused Commitment (the “Loans”) on each Loan Funding Date; provided that no such Loan shall cause the aggregate outstanding Loan Amount to exceed the Permitted Loan Balance. The Loans shall be advanced on each Loan Funding Date during the Commitment Period and, if requested by any Lender at any time, shall be evidenced by one or more secured promissory notes (collectively, the “Term Notes”) in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit B. Amounts repaid in respect of the Loans may not be re-borrowed.
Section 1.02    Borrowing Procedures. The Loans to be made hereunder shall be requested in a minimum aggregate amount of $25,000,000 and upon the Borrower’s irrevocable written notice (which may be by email), substantially in the form of Exhibit A (each such request, a “Borrowing Request”), delivered to the Administrative Agent and each Lender (i) with respect to the Initial Loans, no later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) at least one (1) Business Day prior to the Closing Date and (ii) with respect to Loans to be made after the Closing Date (x) in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $50,000,000, no later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) at least five (5) Business Days prior to the requested Loan Funding

|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


Date (or such later time and Business Day as may be reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent); provided that any Borrowing Request with respect to Loans in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $50,000,000 may only be delivered at least ten (10) Business Days (or such shorter period as may be reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent) following a previously delivered Borrowing Request and (y) in an aggregate principal amount exceeding $50,000,000, no later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) at least ten (10) Business Days prior to the requested Loan Funding Date (or such later time and Business Day as may be reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent), which notice, in each case, shall (A) specify the amount (which shall not be less than $25,000,000) requested to be advanced by the Lenders and the amount of each Lender’s Percentage (which shall be pro rata among the Lenders with respect to each Lender’s unused Commitment) of such requested amount, (B) specify the Loan Funding Date (which shall be a Business Day), (C) specify the Borrower’s wire instructions, and (D) certify that all prerequisite conditions for the making of such Loans set forth in Sections 5.01 or 5.02, as applicable, have been (or, upon the making of such Loans, will be) satisfied. Each Borrowing Request shall be deemed to be a request by the Borrower to each Lender to fund such Lender’s Percentage of the requested Loans.

(b)Upon the satisfaction of each of the conditions precedent set forth in Section 5.01, on the Closing Date, each Lender shall remit, or cause to be remitted on its behalf, to the Borrower’s Account, its Percentage of the Initial Loans, in same day funds, by wire transfer to the Borrower’s Account not later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the Closing Date. Upon the satisfaction of each of the conditions precedent set forth in Sections 5.02, on each Loan Funding Date, each Lender shall remit, or cause to be remitted on its behalf, to the Borrower’s Account, its Percentage of the Loans requested for such Loan Funding Date, in same day funds, by wire transfer to the Borrower’s Account not later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on such Loan Funding Date.
(c)The obligation of each Lender to fund the Loans shall apply severally and not jointly to each Lender in proportion to its Commitment; provided that nothing contained herein shall impose any obligation on any Lender to fund any Loan, in whole or in part, in excess of its Commitment.
Section 1.03Termination and Reduction of Commitments.
(a)The total Commitment shall terminate (x) on a U.S. Dollar for U.S. Dollar basis for each U.S. Dollar funded by such Lender on each Loan Funding Date and (y) on the Commitment Period Termination Date.
(b)The Borrower shall have the right, upon not less than five (5) Business Days’ written notice to the Administrative Agent (which notice may be conditional upon the closing of another transaction), to terminate the unused Commitments or, from time to time, to reduce the amount of unused Commitments. Any unused Commitments shall terminate on the Commitment Period Termination Date.

ARTICLE II

REPAYMENT

Section 2.01    Repayment. The Loan Amount shall be paid from time to time as set forth in Section 2.03. The Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Lenders, shall record in its records the amount of the Loans outstanding hereunder, each repayment thereof, and other information it deems appropriate. The Loan Amount so recorded shall be presumptive evidence of the principal amount owing and not repaid on the Loans. The failure so to record any such information or any error in so recording any such information shall not, however, limit or otherwise affect the actual obligations of the Borrower hereunder to repay the Loan Amount, together with all interest accruing thereon, as set forth in this Agreement.
Section 2.02    Interest.
(a)Interest Rates.
(i)Interest Generally. With respect to each Loan, the Loan Amount shall accrue interest from the applicable Loan Funding Date on each day at a per annum rate equal to the Interest Rate for the related Interest Period plus the Applicable Margin, which interest in each case shall be due and payable as set forth in clause (b) below.
(ii)Default Interest. Upon and after the occurrence of an Event of Default, and during the continuation thereof, any principal of, or interest on, any Loans outstanding or any fees or other Obligations outstanding payable by the Borrower in connection therewith shall, whether at stated maturity, upon acceleration or otherwise, bear interest, after as well as before judgment, at a rate per annum equal to 3.00% plus the rate otherwise applicable to such Loan as provided in the preceding paragraphs of this Section. Notwithstanding the foregoing, but without duplication thereof, if any principal of, interest, premium, fees or any other amounts payable on, the Loans or otherwise hereunder is not paid when due (after giving effect to any grace or cure period), whether at stated maturity, upon acceleration or otherwise, such overdue amount shall bear interest, after as well as before judgment, at a rate per annum equal to 3.00% plus the rate otherwise applicable to such Loan as provided in paragraph (a)(i) above.
(b)Interest Payment Dates. Interest accrued on the Loan Amount shall be paid on (i) each Interest Payment Date, (ii) each Prepayment Date, and (iii) the Final Maturity Date, provided that interest accrued pursuant to paragraph (a)(ii) above of this Section shall be payable on demand.
(c)LIBOR Notification. The Adjusted Eurodollar Rate is determined by reference to the Three-Month LIBOR Rate, which is derived from the London interbank offered rate. The London interbank offered rate is intended to represent the rate at which contributing banks may obtain short-term borrowings from each other in the London interbank market. On March 5, 2021, the regulatory supervisor of LIBOR’s administrator (together with any successor to the ICE Benchmark Administrator, the “IBA”) announced in a public statement the future cessation or loss of representativeness of USD LIBOR tenor settings, including the Three-Month LIBOR Rate. Upon cessation or loss of the Three-Month LIBOR Rate or in certain other circumstances as set forth in Section 4.04 of this Agreement, such Section 4.04 provides a mechanism for determining an alternative rate of interest. The Administrative Agent and the Borrower will endeavor to agree, pursuant to Section 4.04, in advance of any change to the reference rate upon which the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate is based. However (and except for the computation of the rate and the obligations specifically provided in Section 4.04 and elsewhere in this Agreement), the Administrative Agent does not warrant or accept any responsibility for, and shall not have any liability with respect to, the administration, submission or any other matter related to the
3
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


London interbank offered rate or other rates in the definition of “Three-Month LIBOR Rate” or with respect to any alternative or successor rate thereto, or replacement rate thereof, including without limitation, whether the composition or characteristics of any such alternative, successor or replacement reference rate, as it may or may not be adjusted pursuant to Section 4.04 will be similar to, or produce the same value or economic equivalence of, the Three-Month LIBOR Rate or have the same volume or liquidity as did the London interbank offered rate prior to its discontinuance or unavailability.
Section 2.03    Repayments and Prepayments. The Borrower shall, and hereby unconditionally promises to, repay in full the Loan Amount and all other Obligations (excluding contingent Obligations not then due) on the Final Maturity Date. The Borrower:

(a)shall, without requiring the prior consent of the Lenders, the Collateral Agent or the Administrative Agent, on, or prior to, the second (2nd) Business Day following the date on which a Responsible Officer of the Borrower has obtained knowledge of or written notice that the Loan Amount exceeds the Permitted Loan Balance, prepay the Loan Amount so that after giving effect to such prepayment, the Loan Amount does not exceed the Permitted Loan Balance; provided, that the Borrower shall at such time also pay in full all accrued interest on the portion of the Loan Amount so prepaid together with the Repayment Premium specified in clause (g) below;
(b)may, from time to time, prepay the Loan Amount in whole or in part (subject to Section 4.03) upon two (2) Business Days’ prior written notice (which notice may be conditional upon the closing of another transaction) of the proposed prepayment date to the Administrative Agent; provided that (i) any such prepayment shall be in a principal amount equal to or greater than $1,000,000 and (ii) the Borrower shall pay in full all accrued interest on the portion of the Loan Amount so prepaid together with the Repayment Premium specified in clause (g) below;
(c)shall, without requiring the prior consent of the Lenders, the Collateral Agent or the Administrative Agent, on, or prior to, the second (2nd) Business Day following the date on which the Borrower has received Net Proceeds of any Receivables and any IP Assets sold as permitted pursuant to Section 7.03(a), apply such Net Proceeds to prepay the Loan Amount; provided that the Borrower shall at such time also pay in full all accrued interest on the portion of the Loan Amount so prepaid together with the Repayment Premium specified in clause (g) below;
(d)shall, without requiring the prior consent of the Lenders, the Collateral Agent or the Administrative Agent, on, or prior to, the fifth (5th) Business Day following the date on which the Borrower has received Net Proceeds of any Recovery Event, apply such Net Proceeds to prepay the Loan Amount; provided, that the Borrower shall, in each case, at such time also pay in full all accrued interest on the portion of the Loan Amount so prepaid together with the Repayment Premium specified in clause (g) below;
(e)shall, without requiring the prior consent of the Lenders, the Collateral Agent or the Administrative Agent, on, or prior to, the second (2nd) Business Day following the date on which the Borrower has received Net Proceeds from the incurrence of any Indebtedness (other than with respect to any Indebtedness expressly permitted to be incurred hereunder), apply such Net Proceeds to prepay the Loan Amount; provided that the Borrower shall at such time also pay in full all accrued interest on the portion of the Loan Amount so prepaid together with the Repayment Premium specified in clause (g) below; and
(f)shall, upon the occurrence of a Servicer Liquidity Event, be deemed to have consented to the application of all amounts on deposit in the Cash Reserve Account to prepay the Loan Amount and all accrued interest on the portion of the Loan Amount so prepaid together
4
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


with the Repayment Premium specified in clause (g) below, and the Collateral Agent shall promptly so apply such amounts; provided that such prepayment pursuant to this clause (f) shall be made solely to the extent of such funds then on deposit.
(g)In the event that the Borrower makes (i) any voluntary or mandatory prepayment of all or any portion of the Loan Amount pursuant to clauses (a), (b), (c), (d), (e) or (f) of this Section 2.03 or (ii) any prepayment of all or any portion of the Loan Amount (x) while an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, (y) after the acceleration of the Obligations or (z) after the commencement of an Event of Bankruptcy (in each case of clauses (i) and (ii), a “Prepayment Event”), the Borrower shall pay, (i) if such Prepayment Event occurs prior to the date that is 12 months after the Loan Funding Date of the corresponding Loan subject to such Prepayment Event, an amount equal to the sum of a prepayment premium equal to 10.00% of the outstanding Loan Amount subject to such Prepayment Event; (ii) if such Prepayment Event occurs on or after the date that is 12 months after the Loan Funding Date of the corresponding Loan subject to such Prepayment Event but prior to the date that is 24 months after the Loan Funding Date of the corresponding Loan subject to such Prepayment Event, a prepayment premium equal to 5.00% of the outstanding Loan Amount subject to such Prepayment Event; and (iii) if such Prepayment Event occurs on or after the date that is 24 months after the Loan Funding Date of the corresponding Loan subject to such Prepayment Event but prior to the date that is 36 months after the Loan Funding Date of the corresponding Loan subject to such Prepayment Event, a prepayment premium equal to 2.50% of the outstanding Loan Amount subject to such Prepayment Event (such amounts described in clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) are herein referred to as the “Repayment Premium”). For the avoidance of doubt, if a Prepayment Event occurs on or after the date that is 36 months after the Loan Funding Date of the corresponding Loan, no Repayment Premium shall be payable in respect of such Prepayment Event.
The Borrower shall inform the Administrative Agent promptly, in writing, upon the discovery of any event that gave rise to a prepayment obligation pursuant to this Section 2.03. The Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent by 1:00 p.m. (New York City time), two (2) Business Days prior to any prepayment under this Section 2.03.
(h)Any prepayment of the Loan Amount shall be applied to the Loans on a pro rata basis plus the applicable Repayment Premium and the amount of interest accrued with respect thereto on a pro rata basis.
Section 2.04    Other Payments. In addition to the payment obligations described in Section 2.03 above, at all times, including after the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default, the Borrower agrees to pay on or prior to each Interest Payment Date all other Required Payments to the Persons entitled thereto subject to available funds resulting from Collections (which for the avoidance of doubt, shall not include any amounts on deposit in the Cash Reserve Account); provided, that the Administrative Agent Fee will be paid on the last Interest Payment Date of each calendar quarter, commencing with the Interest Payment Date in May, 2022 (subject to available funds resulting from Collections (excluding amounts on deposit in the Cash Reserve Account)); provided further that on any Interest Payment Date, the Required Payments set forth in clauses (i) through (x) of the definition thereof shall be paid prior to payment of any other Required Payments or of any amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.02 and Section 2.03 and shall be paid pro rata, and amounts paid pursuant to clause (xii) of the definition of “Required Payments” shall be paid pro rata.

Section 2.05    General Procedures. The Loan Amount shall not be considered reduced by any allocation, setting aside or distribution of any portion of any payment unless such payments shall have been actually delivered to the Administrative Agent for the purpose of paying principal on such Loan Amount. No principal or interest shall be considered paid by any distribution of any portion of any payment if at any time such distribution is rescinded or must
5
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


otherwise be returned for any reason. No provision of this Agreement shall require the payment or permit the collection of interest in excess of the maximum permitted by Applicable Law.

Section 2.06 Characterization of Loan Amount. The parties hereto intend and agree that, for the purposes of all Taxes, the Loans constitute indebtedness of the Borrower that are secured by the Receivables, all Related Assets, all Collections with respect thereto and all other Collateral (the “Intended Tax Characterization”). Except to the extent otherwise required pursuant to a “determination” (as defined in Section 1313(a) of the Code or any similar provision of state or local tax law), the parties hereto agree to report and otherwise to act for the purposes of all Taxes in a manner consistent with the Intended Tax Characterization.
Section 2.07     Characterization of Loan Amount.

(a)Defined Terms. For purposes of this Section 2.07, the term “Applicable Law” includes FATCA.
(b)Payments Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of the Borrower under any Transaction Document shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by Applicable Law. If any Applicable Law (as determined in the good faith discretion of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by or on behalf of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, then the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Regulatory Authority in accordance with Applicable Law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the Borrower shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.07) the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.
(c)Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrower. The Borrower shall timely pay to the relevant Regulatory Authority in accordance with Applicable Law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes.
(d)Indemnification by the Borrower. The Borrower shall indemnify each Recipient, within ten (10) days after written demand therefor accompanied by supporting documentation in reasonable detail, for the full amount of (i) any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 2.07) payable or paid by such Recipient or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Recipient and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Regulatory Authority and (ii) any Taxes that arise because the Loans are not treated consistently by the Borrower or any of its Affiliates with the Intended Tax Characterization (except to the extent required pursuant to a “determination” (as defined in Section 1313(a) of the Code or any similar provision of state or local tax law)). A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability, accompanied by supporting documentation in reasonable detail, delivered to the Borrower by a Lender contemporaneously with the demand for payment hereunder (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent demonstrable error.
(e)Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by the Borrower to a Regulatory Authority pursuant to this Section 2.07, the Borrower shall deliver to the applicable Lender and the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Regulatory Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting
6
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the applicable Lender and the Administrative Agent.
(f)Status of the Lenders. (i) Each Lender, if entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Transaction Document, shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as shall permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, each Lender, if reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by Applicable Law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as shall enable the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in sub-clauses 2.07(f)(ii)(A), (ii)(B) and (ii)(D) below) shall not be required if, in such Lender’s reasonable judgment, such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.
(i)Without limiting the generality of the foregoing:
(ii)    Any U.S. Lender shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed copies of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding tax;
(B)Any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:
(i)in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Transaction Document, executed copies of IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Transaction Document, IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;
(ii)in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming that its extension of credit will generate U.S. effectively connected income, executed copies of IRS Form W-8ECI;
(iii)in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(C) of the Code, (x) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit K-1 to the effect that such Foreign Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of
7
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10 percent shareholder” of the Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation” related to the Borrower as described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) executed copies of IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E;
(iv)to the extent a Foreign Lender is not the beneficial owner, executed copies of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit K-2 or Exhibit K-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Foreign Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit K-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner; or
(v)for purposes of furnishing the U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate as described in the foregoing clauses (iii) and (iv), if a Foreign Lender (or a foreign Participant) is a Disregarded Entity, the Foreign Lender will submit such certificate based on the status of the Person that is treated for U.S. federal income tax purposes as being the sole owner of such Lender or Participant;
(C)Any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent) executed copies of any other form prescribed by Applicable Law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by Applicable Law to permit the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and
(D)if a payment made to a Lender under any Transaction Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent such documentation prescribed by Applicable Law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent as may be necessary for the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, and the Collateral Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this clause (D), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the Closing Date.

(iii)Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.
(iv)The Administrative Agent and any successor Administrative Agent shall deliver to the Borrower either (i) an executed copy of IRS Form W-9 or (ii) a duly completed and executed copy IRS Form W-8ECI to establish that the Administrative Agent is not subject to withholding Taxes under the Code with respect to amounts payable for the account of the Administrative Agent under any of the Transaction Documents. The Administrative Agent agrees that if such IRS Form W-9 or W-8ECI, as applicable, previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or promptly notify the Borrower in writing of its legal inability to do so.
(g)Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 2.07 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.07), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 2.07 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Regulatory Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this Section 2.07(g) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Regulatory Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Regulatory Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.07(g), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this Section 2.07(g) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This Section 2.07(g) shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.
(h)Indemnification by the Lenders. Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within 10 days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that the Borrower has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Borrower to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 9.01(g) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register and (iii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender, in each case, that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent in connection with any Transaction Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Regulatory Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent demonstrable error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under any Transaction Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this paragraph (h).

Section 2.08    Survival. Each party’s obligations under Section 2.06 and Section 2.07 shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Administrative Agent or any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, the termination of the Commitments and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Transaction Document. Any such resignation, replacement or assignment shall be in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

SETTLEMENTS
Section 3.01     Accounts.
(a)Collection Account. The Borrower has established in its name an account with an account number ending in -0616 (such account, together with any one or more Foreign Receivables Collection Accounts established after the date hereof, individually or collectively as the context requires, the “Collection Account”), which Account is a segregated account maintained at the Account Bank, and shall be subject to an Account Control Agreement reasonably satisfactory to the Collateral Agent. All amounts in the Collection Account shall be held by the Account Bank for the benefit of the Borrower and the Collateral Agent on behalf of the Secured Parties as part of the Collateral.
(b)Cash Reserve Account. On the Closing Date, funds in an amount equal to the Cash Reserve Required Amount shall be deposited into the Borrower’s account with an account number ending in – 9511 at the Account Bank (the “Cash Reserve Account”), which Cash Reserve Account is a segregated account maintained at the Account Bank and which shall be subject to an Account Control Agreement reasonably satisfactory to the Collateral Agent (which shall include, among other things, cash dominion by the Collateral Agent upon a Servicer Liquidity Event). The Cash Reserve Required Amount will thereafter remain in the Cash Reserve Account at all times, subject to the provisions of this Agreement and the other Transactions Documents. Upon the occurrence of a Servicer Liquidity Event, the Collateral Agent shall, without further direction or consent of the Borrower, promptly apply all amounts on deposit in the Cash Reserve Account in accordance with Section 2.03(f) to the payment of the Loan Amount and all accrued interest on the portion of the Loan Amount so prepaid.
(c)Permitted Investments. Funds on deposit in the Collection Account and the Cash Reserve Account shall be invested in Permitted Investments selected in writing by the initial Servicer and of which the initial Servicer provides notification (pursuant to standing instructions or otherwise); provided that it is understood and agreed that neither the Administrative Agent nor the Collateral Agent shall be liable for any loss arising from such investment in Permitted
10
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


Investments. Absent such written direction (pursuant to standing instructions or otherwise) from the initial Servicer, funds on deposit in either the Collection Account or the Cash Reserve Account will remain un-invested (it being understood that the Collection Account and the Cash Reserve Account may be interest-bearing), provided, that it is understood and agreed that any Successor Servicer shall not have any liability for not providing any such written direction. All such Permitted Investments shall be held by or on behalf of the Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Borrower and the Secured Parties. All investments of funds on deposit in the Collection Account shall mature so that such funds will be available on the Business Day prior to the next Interest Payment Date. No Permitted Investment shall be sold or otherwise disposed of prior to its scheduled maturity unless the Administrative Agent directs the Collateral Agent in writing to dispose of such Permitted Investment. Funds on deposit in the Collection Account and the Cash Reserve Account shall be treated as owned by the Borrower for all applicable Tax purposes, and all Investment Earnings and losses shall be for the account of Borrower. The Administrative Agent shall cause the deposit of such Investment Earnings credited to the Cash Reserve Account into the Collection Account (to the extent not already on deposit therein) or otherwise at the direction of the Borrower.

If, at any time, any of the Borrower, the Servicer or any Affiliate thereof shall receive any Collections or any amounts payable to the Borrower pursuant to the terms of the IP License Agreement, such Person shall hold such Collections and such amounts payable pursuant to the IP License Agreement for the benefit of the Secured Parties and shall, within two (2) Business Days after receipt and identification thereof, deliver such Collections in the form received (endorsed as necessary for transfer) to the Servicer for deposit in the Collection Account; provided, however, notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent that Collections in an aggregate amount outstanding at any time not to exceed $100,000 are received by the Originators, such Originators shall deliver such Collections in the form received (endorsed as necessary for transfer) to the Servicer for deposit in the Collection Account as promptly as commercially practicable after receipt and identification thereof.
(b)Collection Account Releases. Upon the terms and subject to the conditions hereinafter set forth, the Borrower may transfer funds from the Collection Account to any other account of the Borrower of any of its Affiliates or for any other purpose so long as the Collection Account Release Conditions are satisfied (each, a “Collection Account Release”). Any amount so transferred shall be free and clear of any Lien hereunder.
(c)Cash Reserve Account Releases. Upon the terms and subject to the conditions hereinafter set forth, the Borrower may request a release of funds from the Cash Reserve Account (each, a “Cash Reserve Account Release”) by providing written notice (which may be by email), substantially in the form of Exhibit M (each such request, a “Cash Reserve Account Release Request”), delivered to the Administrative Agent and each Lender no later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) at least two (2) Business Days prior to the requested Release Date, which notice shall (A) specify the amount requested to be released, (B) specify the requested Release Date (which shall be a Business Day) and (C) certify that each of the prerequisite conditions for the making of such Release set forth in Section 5.03 (the “Release Conditions”) are then satisfied; provided, that in determining whether the Release Conditions have been satisfied, the Borrower shall give pro forma effect to all Cash Reserve Account Releases and changes in Collateral since the last Interest Payment Date.  Upon satisfaction of each of the Release Conditions, on each Release Date the Collateral Agent shall remit to the Borrower in same day funds, by wire transfer to the Borrower’s Account not later than 2:00 p.m. (New York

Section 3.03    [Reserved].

Section 3.04    Payments and Computations, Etc. All amounts to be paid or deposited by the Borrower, Servicer, Account Bank or Collateral Agent hereunder shall be made by such Person, as applicable, to the account designated by the Administrative Agent or other applicable Person to which such amount is owed and shall be sent in immediately available funds, no later than 3:00 p.m. (New York time) on the date specified herein. Any payment received later than 3:00 p.m. (New York time) may, in the Administrative Agent’s discretion, be deemed to have been received on the following Business Day and any applicable interest or fee shall continue to accrue until such following Business Day.

(b)Method of Computation. All computations of interest and fees hereunder shall be calculated on the basis of a year of 360 days (or, in the case of interest accruing by reference to the Base Rate, 365 or 366 days, as applicable), for actual days elapsed. In computing interest on any Loan, the date of the making of such Loan or the first day of an Interest Period applicable to such Loan shall be included, and the date of payment of such Loan or the expiration date of an Interest Period applicable to such Loan, as the case may be, shall be excluded.
(c)Lender’s Reliance. In making the deposits, distributions and calculations required to be made by it hereunder, the Collateral Agent, Administrative Agent and Lenders shall be entitled to rely on information supplied to it by any Credit Party.

Section 3.05    Obligations with respect to Certain Collection Account Releases; Obligation to Prepare Corrected Monthly Reports and Cash Reserve Account Release Requests. If any Monthly Report or Cash Reserve Account Release Request contains material mistakes, the Borrower shall cause the Servicer to provide a corrected Monthly Report or Cash Reserve Account Release Request, as applicable, within three (3) Business Days after a Responsible Officer of the Borrower becoming first aware or being notified of such mistakes. In the event that (i) any amounts were released to the Borrower from the Cash Reserve Account on any Release Date based on an inaccurate Monthly Report or Cash Reserve Account Release Request or (ii) any amounts were released to the Borrower from the Collection Account on any Release Date when the Collection Account Release Conditions were not satisfied, then in each case, the Borrower and the Servicer each hereby agrees (A) that such amounts which the Borrower was not entitled to receive on such Release Date, constitute proceeds of the Collateral which were improperly received by the Borrower and (B) that the Servicer shall deposit funds into the Collection Account, within two (2) Business Days after a Responsible Officer of the Servicer first becomes aware or has been provided notice of such mistakes, in an amount (such amount, the “Servicer Error Payment”) equal to any funds that were released to the Borrower (or at its direction) in reliance on such inaccurate Monthly Report or Cash Reserve Account Release Request, or in error when the Collection Account Release Conditions were not satisfied, as applicable (and that would not have been released to the Borrower (or at its direction) on such Release Date, as applicable, pursuant to an accurate Monthly Report or Cash Reserve Account Release Request or absent such error, as applicable) such that the aggregate amount of funds retained by the Borrower is equal to the aggregate amount of funds that would have been released to the Borrower (or at its direction) had such Monthly Report or Cash Reserve Account Release Request, as applicable, been accurate, or had the Collection Account Release Conditions
12

ARTICLE IV

FEES AND YIELD PROTECTION

Section 4.01    [Reserved].

Section 4.02    Increased Costs; Capital Adequacy; Replacement of Lenders.
(a)If any Regulatory Change (i) subjects any Affected Party to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of “Excluded Taxes” and (C) Connection Income Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto, (ii) imposes, modifies or deems applicable any reserve, assessment, fee, insurance charge, liquidity, special deposit or similar requirement (other than Taxes) against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or liabilities of an Affected Party, or credit extended by an Affected Party pursuant to this Agreement (except any such reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate) or (iii) imposes any other condition (other than Taxes), the result of which pursuant to clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) above is to increase the cost to an Affected Party of performing its obligations under this Agreement, or to reduce the rate of return on an Affected Party’s capital as a consequence of its obligations under this Agreement, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable (whether of principal, interest or otherwise) by an Affected Party under this Agreement, or to require any payment calculated by reference to the amount of interests or loans held or interest received by it, then, upon written demand by the Administrative Agent or any Lender accompanied by the certificate and supporting documentation described in Section 4.02(c), the Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent or such Lender, for the benefit of the relevant Affected Party, such amounts charged to such Affected Party or such amounts to otherwise compensate such Affected Party for such increased cost or such reduction. The term “Regulatory Change” shall mean (i) the adoption after the date hereof (or, if later, the date the relevant Affected Party (or the related Lender) becomes a party hereto) of any Applicable Law (including any Applicable Law regarding capital adequacy or liquidity) or any change therein after the date hereof (or, if later, the date the relevant Affected Party (or the related Lender) becomes a party hereto) or (ii) any change after the date hereof (or, if later, the date the relevant Affected Party (or the related Lender) becomes a party hereto) in the interpretation or administration thereof by any Regulatory Authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency; provided that notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, all requests, rules, guidelines or directives promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor or similar authority) or the United States or foreign regulatory authorities, in each case pursuant to the Basel III Regulation, shall in each case be deemed to be a “Regulatory Change”, regardless of the date enacted, adopted or issued.
(b)If any Lender determines that any Regulatory Change affecting such Lender or any lending office of such Lender or such Lender’s holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement, such Lender’s Commitment or the Loans made by such Lender to a level below that which such Lender or such Lender’s holding company could have achieved but for such Regulatory Change (taking into consideration such Lender’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy) or results in the imposition of an internal liquidity charge on the Lender or the Lender’s holding company, then from time to time
13
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


the Borrower will pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such Lender’s holding company for any such reduction or charge suffered.
(c)A certificate of the applicable Affected Party setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for and computation of amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Affected Party pursuant to Section 4.02(a) or (b) shall be delivered to a Responsible Officer of the Borrower and shall be conclusive absent demonstrable error. The Borrower shall pay or cause to be paid to such Affected Party the amount shown as due on any such certificate free of demonstrable error within 30 days after receipt thereof.
(d)Failure or delay on the part of any to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Affected Party’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the Borrower shall not be required to compensate an Affected Party pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 90 days prior to the date that such Affected Party notifies the Borrower in writing of the Regulatory Change giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Affected Party’s demand for compensation therefor; provided further that, if the Regulatory Change giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 90-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.
(e)No Affected Party shall request compensation pursuant to this Section 4.02 unless either (i) it is the general practice of such Affected Party to demand such compensation in securitization facilities to which it is a party or (ii) either it or any Affiliate thereof has issued or is issuing similar request(s) for compensation with respect to securitization facilities with aggregate commitments or aggregate outstanding indebtedness thereunder of at least $1,000,000,000 in the aggregate.
(f)If (i) any Lender (or any Participant holding interests in any Loan owing to such Lender or in any Commitment of such Lender or in any other interest of such Lender under the Transaction Documents) requests compensation under this Section 4.02, (ii) the Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to or on account of any Lender (or any Participant thereof) pursuant to Section 2.07, (iii) any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, (iv) any Lender shall refuse to consent to any waiver, amendment or other modification that would otherwise require such Lender’s consent but to which the Required Lenders have consented, or (v) any Lender (1) shall at any time have a long-term credit rating of lower than BBB from S&P, lower than Baa2 from Moody’s or lower than the equivalent rating from any other nationally recognized statistical rating organization, or shall at any time not have a long-term credit rating from S&P or Moody’s (in each case under this clause (v)(1) regardless of whether any such circumstances existed at the time such Lender became a Lender), (2) is an Ineligible Institution, (3) enters into, or purports to enter into, an assignment or a participation with an Ineligible Institution in violation of this Agreement or (4) has become the subject of a Bail-In Action (or any case or other proceeding in which a Bail-In Action may occur), then the Borrower may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender (and its Related Parties) to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Article IX), all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided, that (x) in the case of an assignment to an assignee which is not a Lender, the Borrower shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, (y) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to (i) the outstanding principal of its Loans and participations in the relevant Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts due and payable to it hereunder and (ii) all other Obligations then outstanding and owed to such Lender, from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Borrower (in the case of all other amounts) and (z)
14
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


in the case of any such assignment arising under clause (v)(1) above, the assignee (or its parent) shall have a credit rating greater than or equal to BBB from S&P and/or greater than or equal to Baa2 from Moody’s; provided, that the Borrower shall provide the Administrative Agent in its capacity as Lender a right of first refusal (but not an obligation) to accept the assignment of such Commitment. If such Lender is the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent or an Affiliate of either of them, no such assignment shall be effective unless (x) a successor Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent, as applicable, have been appointed and have accepted such appointment pursuant to an instrument of assumption in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the existing Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent, as applicable, and (y) the existing Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent, as applicable, have been discharged from all duties and obligations hereunder and under each of the other Transaction Documents and all Obligations then outstanding and owed to such Person have been paid in full. Each party hereto agrees that (1) an assignment by a Lender required pursuant to this paragraph may be effected pursuant to an assignment and assumption executed by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the assignee, and (2) the Lender required to make such assignment need not be a party thereto in order for such assignment to be effective and shall be deemed to have consented to and be bound by the terms thereof; provided that, following the effectiveness of any such assignment, the other parties to such assignment agree to execute and deliver such documents necessary to evidence such assignment as reasonably requested by the applicable Lender, provided that any such documents shall be without recourse to or warranty by the parties thereto; provided, further that in the case of any such assignment resulting from a Lender that has become the subject of a Bail-In Action (or any case or other proceeding in which a Bail-In Action may occur), then, the assignee shall be deemed to have taken assignment of all the interests, rights and obligations of the assigning Lender under this Agreement without giving effect to the applicable Bail-In Action on such interests, rights and obligations.

Section 4.03    Funding Indemnification. The Borrower shall indemnify the Lenders for any Breakage Cost related to (i) a proposed Loan if a Loan is not made on the date requested by the Borrower in any Borrowing Request for any reason other than a breach of this Agreement by the Lender claiming indemnity therefor and (ii) any prepayment of the Loans pursuant to Section 2.03.
Section 4.04    Inability to Determine Rates.

(a)If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period:
(i)subject to clause (b) below, the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent demonstrable error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate or the Three-Month LIBOR Rate, as applicable (including because the Three-Month LIBOR Screen Rate is not available or published on a current basis), for such Interest Period; or
(ii)the Administrative Agent is advised by the Required Lenders that the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate or the Three-Month LIBOR Rate, as applicable, for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders (or Lender) of making or maintaining their Loans (or its Loan) specified in the related Borrowing Request for such Interest Period;
then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Borrower and the Lenders by telephone, telecopy or electronic mail as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist (which notice the Administrative Agent shall give as promptly as practicable once such circumstances cease to exist, unless such information is publicly
15
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


available), if any Borrowing Request requests a Loan, such Loan shall be made with reference to the Base Rate.
(b)If at any time the Administrative Agent, after consultation with the Borrower, determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent demonstrable error) that (i) the circumstances set forth in clause (a)(i) have arisen and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary, (ii) the Three-Month LIBOR Rate is no longer a widely recognized benchmark rate for newly-originated loans in the United States syndicated or direct loan market, (iii) HPS Investment Partners, LLC is currently executing loan facilities that include language similar to that contained in this clause (b), or is amending such facilities to incorporate or adopt a new benchmark interest rate to replace the Three-Month LIBOR Rate, or (iv) the circumstances set forth in clause (a)(i) have not arisen but (x) the supervisor for the administrator of the Three-Month LIBOR Screen Rate has made a public statement that the administrator of the Three-Month LIBOR Screen Rate is insolvent (and there is no successor administrator that will continue publication of the Three-Month LIBOR Screen Rate), (y) a Regulatory Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the Three-Month LIBOR Screen Rate may no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans or (z) the administrator of the Three-Month LIBOR Screen Rate has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the Three-Month LIBOR Screen Rate will lose representativeness of the Three-Month LIBOR Screen Rate setting (it being acknowledged that such a public statement under this clause (z) has been made), then, and with respect to the circumstance set forth in clause (z), at any time after the date hereof, in the sole discretion of the Administrative Agent, acting at the direction of the Required Lenders, either (i) the Administrative Agent, acting at the direction of the Required Lenders may elect to convert any Loans then outstanding that are Eurodollar Loans to Base Rate Loans on the first date of the next Interest Period or (ii) the Administrative Agent and the Borrower shall endeavor to establish an alternate rate of interest to the Three-Month LIBOR Rate that gives due consideration to the then prevailing market convention for determining a rate of interest for syndicated loans in the United States at such time (including any mathematical or other adjustments to the alternate rate incorporated therein to preserve pricing), and shall enter into an amendment to this Agreement to reflect such alternate rate of interest, any adjustments thereto and such other related changes to this Agreement as may be applicable such that, to the extent practicable, the interest payable by the Borrower based on the replacement index will be substantially equivalent to the interest that would be payable based on the Three-Month LIBOR Rate in effect prior to the event(s) giving rise to the use of such replacement index; provided that, if such alternate rate of interest as so determined would be less than 1.00%, such rate shall be deemed to be 1.00% for the purposes of this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 12.01, such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement so long as the Administrative Agent shall not have received, within five Business Days of the date notice of such alternate rate of interest is provided to the Lenders, a written notice from the Required Lenders stating that such Required Lenders object to such amendment.

Section 8.02    Remedies upon an Event of Default.

(a)Optional Acceleration. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default (other than an Event of Default described in Section 8.01(e) with respect to any SmileDirect Entity), the Collateral Agent may, with the prior written consent of, and shall, at the direction of, the Required Lenders, by written notice to a Responsible Officer of the Borrower, declare that the Final Maturity Date has occurred and upon any such declaration, the date of such notice shall be deemed to be the Final Maturity Date and the Loan Amount shall be immediately due and payable, together with all accrued interest thereon and all other Obligations, without presentment, demand, protest or other notice of any kind, all of which are hereby waived by the Borrower.
(b)Automatic Acceleration. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default described in Section 8.01(e) with respect to any SmileDirect Entity, the Final Maturity Date shall occur automatically upon the date of such occurrence and the unpaid Loan Amount shall automatically become due and payable, together with all accrued interest thereon and all other Obligations, without presentment, demand, protest or notice of any kind, all of which are hereby waived by the Borrower.
(c)Additional Remedies. Following any acceleration of the unpaid Loan Amount pursuant to this Section 8.02, the Collateral Agent, with the prior written consent of or at the direction of the Required Lenders, shall have, in addition to all other rights and remedies under this Agreement or otherwise, all other rights and remedies provided under the UCC of each applicable jurisdiction and other Applicable Laws to a secured party, which rights shall be cumulative, including, without limitation, the right to foreclose upon the Collateral and sell all or any portion thereof at public or private sale (and the Borrower agrees that, to the extent that notice of such sale is required, written notice ten (10) days prior to such sale shall be adequate and reasonable notice for all purposes).
(d)Disposition of Collateral. Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, subject to any applicable cure period, and if the Collateral Agent (at the direction of the Required Lenders) exercises its foreclosure rights with respect to the Collateral, the Borrower agrees to deliver, or cause the delivery of, each item of Collateral to the Collateral Agent on demand. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Borrower agrees that, upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, if the Collateral Agent (at the direction of the Required Lenders) exercises its foreclosure rights with respect to the Collateral, the Collateral Agent shall have the right, subject to the mandatory requirements of Applicable Law, to sell or otherwise dispose of all or any part of the Collateral at a public or private sale, for cash, upon credit or for future delivery, as the Collateral Agent (at the direction of the Required Lenders) shall deem appropriate. Any purchaser that has purchased any Collateral pursuant to any such sale shall hold the property sold absolutely free from any claim or right on the part of the Borrower, and the Borrower hereby waives (to the extent permitted by law) all rights of redemption, stay and appraisal which the Borrower now has or may at any time in the future have under any rule of law or statute now existing or hereafter enacted.
(e)Setoff. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, regardless of the other means of obtaining payment of any of the obligations of the Borrower hereunder or under any other Transaction Document, each of the Lenders and any other Secured Party is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, without prior notice (but with notice promptly thereafter) to the Borrower (any such prior notice being expressly waived by the Borrower) and to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off and apply deposits (other than
39
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


those held in an agency or fiduciary capacity or otherwise for the benefit of a third party) and other sums against the obligations of the Borrower due under this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents, whether or not such Lender or the other Secured Parties shall have made any demand under this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents. No Credit Party shall be entitled to exercise any right of setoff with respect to amounts owed by it to any Lender or any other Secured Party under this Agreement or any other Transaction Document. For the avoidance of doubt, and notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Servicer and/or Sub-Servicer may exercise rights of setoff expressly permitted under the Servicing Agreement and/or the Service Provider Agreement (as defined in the Servicing Agreement), as applicable.
Section 8.03    Equity Cure Right.

In the event that an Event of Default would otherwise arise in respect of any financial covenant set forth in Section 8.01(i), but not, for the avoidance of doubt, any financial covenant set forth in Section 8.01(t), until the expiration of the fifth (5th) Business Day after the date on which financial statements are required to be delivered with respect to the applicable calendar month hereunder, the Parent shall have the right to issue Equity Interests for cash or otherwise receive cash contributions to the capital of the Parent, contribute the proceeds thereof to SmileDirect, which shall be further contributed to the Borrower and the amount of the proceeds thereof will be applied by the Borrower to either (i) prepay the Loans in accordance with Section 2.03(a) hereof or (ii) remain on deposit in the Cash Reserve Account and, in each case the Permitted Loan Balance shall be recalculated after giving effect to the foregoing clauses (i) or (ii), as applicable to compliance with Section 8.01(i) hereof at such time (and thereafter as necessary) (the “Cure Right”); provided that (a) such proceeds are actually received by SmileDirect no later than five (5) Business Days after such date on which the Loan Amount first exceeded the Permitted Loan Balance, (b) no amounts in excess of the amounts necessary to cure the Event(s) of Default that would otherwise have arisen shall be permitted to be taken into account for purposes of determining compliance with Section 8.01(i), but nothing in this Section 8.03 limits the right of any Credit Party to receive a contribution of additional cash that does not conflict with any other provision of the Transaction Documents; (c) the Cure Right shall not be exercised more than three (3) times during the term of this Agreement; and (d) the aggregate amount of all Cure Right proceeds during the term of this Agreement shall not exceed $15,000,000. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if, after giving effect to the foregoing, there shall be no non-compliance with Section 8.01(i) for the applicable calendar month, no Event of Default shall be deemed to have arisen under such Section as of the relevant date of determination, with the same effect as though there had been no failure to comply on such date, and the applicable Event of Default that otherwise would have occurred shall be deemed cured for purposes of this Agreement.

ARTICLE IX

ASSIGNMENT OF LENDERS’ INTERESTS

Section 9.01    Assignments. This Agreement and each Lender’s rights and obligations herein (including the Loans) shall be assignable, in whole or in part, by such Lender and its successors and permitted assigns, provided that any such successors and assigns have obtained the written consent of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) prior to any such assignment unless such assignment is to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund; provided, however, that no consent of the Borrower shall be required if any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing. Each assignor may, subject to the restrictions set forth in this Section 9.01(a) and Section 12.14, in connection with a prospective assignment (other than to a Disqualified Institution), disclose to the applicable prospective assignee any information relating to the Credit Parties or the Collateral furnished to such assignor by or on behalf of the Credit Parties, the Collateral Agent, the Administrative
40
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


Agent or another Lender. Unless the prospective assignee is a Lender or an Affiliate of a Lender, the assigning Lender shall cause the prospective assignee to enter into a confidentiality agreement substantially the same in applicable substance as Section 12.13 of this Agreement or otherwise reasonably acceptable to the Borrower and to which the Borrower or an Affiliate thereof is a party or with respect to which the Borrower or an Affiliate thereof is a third-party beneficiary.
(b)The Borrower may not assign its rights or, except as otherwise expressly provided herein, delegate its obligations hereunder or any interest herein without the prior written consent of the Lenders.
(c)Without limiting any other rights that may be available under Applicable Law, the rights of any Lender may be enforced through it or by its agents and no Lender shall be responsible or liable for the actions of such agents selected with due care.
(d)Each Lender may, without the consent of any Person, sell participations to one or more banks or other entities other than Ineligible Institutions (each, a “Participant”) in all or a portion of its rights and obligations hereunder (including the outstanding Loans); provided that following the sale of a participation under this Agreement (i) the obligations of such Lender shall remain unchanged, (ii) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations, (iii) the Borrower shall continue to deal solely and directly with the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as appropriate, in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement and (iv) such Participant will not be entitled to receive any payment under Sections 2.07, 4.02 or 10.01, in excess of the payments such Lender would have been entitled to receive absent such participation (unless the entitlement to a greater amount results from a Regulatory Change after the date the Participant acquired the participation) or in excess of the payments demanded generally by such Participant from other similarly situated borrowers under similar circumstances. A Participant that would be a Foreign Lender if it were a Lender shall not be entitled to the benefits of Section 2.07 unless the Participant complies with Section 2.07(f) as though it were a Lender (it being understood that the documentation required under Section 2.07(f) shall be delivered to the participating Lender).
(e)The following provisions shall apply to Disqualified Institutions, notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document to the contrary:
(i)No assignment or participation shall be made to any Person that was a Disqualified Institution as of the date (the “Trade Date”) on which the assigning or participating Lender entered into a binding agreement to sell and assign or grant a participation in all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement to such Person (unless the Borrower has consented to such assignment or participation in writing in its sole and absolute discretion, in which case such Person will not be considered a Disqualified Institution for the purpose of such assignment or participation). For the avoidance of doubt, with respect to any assignee or participant that becomes a Disqualified Institution after the applicable Trade Date (including as a result of the delivery of a notice pursuant to, and/or the expiration of the notice period referred to in, the definition of “Disqualified Institution”), such assignee or participant shall not retroactively be disqualified from becoming a Lender or Participant. Any assignment or participation in violation of this clause (i) shall not be void, but the other provisions of this clause (e) shall apply.
(ii)If any assignment or participation is made to any Disqualified Institution without the Borrower’s prior written consent in violation of clause (i) above, or if any Person becomes a Disqualified Institution after the applicable Trade Date, the Borrower may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to the applicable Disqualified Institution
41
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


and the Administrative Agent, require such Disqualified Institution to assign, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in this Section 9.01), all of its interest, rights and obligations under this Agreement to one or more Persons (other than an Ineligible Institution) at the lesser of (x) the principal amount thereof and (y) the amount that such Disqualified Institution paid to acquire such interests, rights and obligations, in each case plus accrued interest, accrued fees and all other amounts (other than principal amounts) payable to it hereunder.
(iii)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, (A) Disqualified Institutions to whom an assignment or participation is made in violation of clause (i) above will not have the right to (x) receive information, reports or other materials provided to Lenders by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent or any other Lender, (y) attend or participate in meetings attended by the Lenders (or any of them) and the Administrative Agent, or (z) access any electronic site established for the Lenders or confidential communications from counsel to or financial advisors of the Administrative Agent or the Lenders and (B) for purposes of any consent to any amendment, waiver or modification of, or any action under, and for the purpose of any direction to the Administrative Agent or any Lender to undertake any action (or refrain from taking any action) under this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, each Disqualified Institution will be deemed to have consented in the same proportion as the Lenders that are not Disqualified Institutions consented to such matter.
(iv)The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible or have any liability for, or have any duty to ascertain, inquire into, monitor or enforce, compliance with the provisions hereof relating to Ineligible Institutions or Disqualified Institutions. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent shall not (x) be obligated to ascertain, monitor or inquire as to whether any Lender or Participant or prospective Lender or Participant is an Ineligible Institution or Disqualified Institution or (y) have any liability with respect to or arising out of any assignment or participation of Loans, or disclosure of confidential information, by any other Person to any Ineligible Institution or Disqualified Institution.
(f)The Administrative Agent, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrower, shall maintain a copy of each Assignment and Acceptance delivered to it and a register (the “Register”) on which it will record the name and address of each Lender (including any assignees), the principal amounts (and stated interest) owing to each Lender under this Agreement, and any other information necessary to ensure that the Loans are maintained “in registered form” within the meaning of Treasury regulations section 5f.103-1(c) and Proposed Treasury regulations section 1.163-5(b) (or any amended or successor version). The entries in the Register will be conclusive absent demonstrable error, and the Borrower, the Collateral Agent, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders will treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement. The Administrative Agent shall update the Register promptly upon receiving an executed Assignment and Acceptance, and no such assignment shall be effective until reflected in the Register. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower, the Collateral Agent and each Lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior written notice.
(g)In the event that any Lender sells a participation of its rights and obligations hereunder, such Lender shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrower, maintain a register (the “Participant Register”) on which it will record the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each Participant’s interest in such rights and obligations, and any other information necessary to ensure that the Loans are maintained “in registered form” within the meaning of Treasury regulations
42
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


section 5f.103-1(c) and Proposed Treasury regulations section 1.163-5(b) (or any amended or successor version). The entries in the Participant Register will be conclusive absent demonstrable error, and such Lender will treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement. Such Lender shall update the Participant Register promptly upon a sale of a participation of such Lender’s rights and obligations hereunder, and no such sale of a participation shall be effective until reflected in the Participant Register. Such Lender will not have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register to any Person except (i) that it will notify the Borrower of such participation, and (ii) to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that the Loans are maintained “in registered form” within the meaning of Treasury regulations section 5f.103-1(c). For the avoidance of doubt, the Administrative Agent (in its capacity as Administrative Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.
Section 9.02    Rights of Assignee. Upon the assignment by any Lender in accordance with Section 9.01, the assignee receiving such assignment shall have all of the rights of such Lender with respect to the Transaction Documents and the Collateral (or such portion thereof as has been assigned), and all of the obligations of such Lender, including without limitation, under Sections 2.07, 9.01(d) and 12.13.

Section 9.03    Evidence of Assignment. Any assignment of any Lender’s rights and obligations hereunder, and the Loans (or any portion thereof) to any Person shall be evidenced by an Assignment and Acceptance. The Administrative Agent shall receive a fee in the amount of $3,500 payable by the assignee upon the effective date of each transfer or assignment (unless waived in writing in the sole discretion of the Administrative Agent) along with all “know your customer” documents requested by the Administrative Agent pursuant to anti-money laundering rules and regulations.

Section 9.04    Pledge; Federal Reserve. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, any Lender may at any time pledge or grant a security interest in all or any portion of its rights (including, without limitation, any interest it has in any Loans and any rights to payment on such Loans or interest thereon) under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender or an Affiliate of such Lender to a Federal Reserve Bank without notice to or consent of the Borrower or any other party hereto; provided, that no such pledge or grant of a security interest shall release such Lender from any of its obligations hereunder, or substitute any such pledgee or grantee for such Lender as a party hereto.

Section 9.05    Patriot Act. Each Lender that is subject to the requirements of the Patriot Act hereby notifies each Credit Party that pursuant to the requirements of the Patriot Act, it is required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies such Credit Party, which information includes the name and address of such Credit Party and other information that will allow such Lender to identify such Credit Party in accordance with the Patriot Act.

INDEMNIFICATION
Section 10.1    Indemnities.
(a)Indemnity by Borrower. Without limiting any other rights that any such Person may have hereunder or under Applicable Law (including, without limitation, the right to recover damages for breach of contract), the Borrower hereby agrees to indemnify the Collateral Agent, Administrative Agent, the Back-Up Servicer, each Lender, each other Secured Party, their Affiliates, and all successors and permitted transferees, participants and assigns and all officers,
43
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


directors, stockholders, members, employees, advisors, representatives and agents of any of the foregoing (each an “Indemnified Party”) from and against any and all reasonable and documented damages, losses, claims, liabilities and related costs and expenses, including reasonable and documented attorneys’ fees and disbursements of one primary firm of counsel for all Indemnified Parties, and, if necessary, one local firm of counsel in each relevant jurisdiction and special counsel and, in the event of any actual or potential conflict of interest, one additional firm of counsel for each Lender subject to such conflict (all of the foregoing being collectively referred to as “Indemnified Amounts”) awarded against or incurred by any of them arising out of or relating to the Transaction Documents (including any failure of the Borrower to enforce its rights under the Transaction Documents and the obligations of the other parties under the Transaction Documents) or the use of proceeds of the Loans or in respect of any Receivable in all cases, regardless of whether such Indemnified Party is a party thereto, and whether or not any such claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding is brought by the Borrower, any other Credit Party, their respective equity holders, affiliates or creditors, or any other Person; excluding, however, (v) Indemnified Taxes, (w) Excluded Taxes (other than any Taxes that represent losses, claims, damages, liabilities or related costs and expenses arising from any non-Tax claim), (x) Indemnified Amounts resulting from a dispute solely among Lenders so long as such dispute does not (i) involve a claim against the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent and (ii) arise as a result of any action, inaction, representation or misrepresentation of, or information provided, or that was failed to be provided, by or on behalf of, any SmileDirect Entity or the Sub-Servicer, (y) Indemnified Amounts resulting from a dispute solely among one or more of the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent and/or the Lenders so long as (i) such dispute does not arise as a result of any action, inaction, representation or misrepresentation of, or information provided, or that was failed to be provided, by or on behalf of, any SmileDirect Entity or the Sub-Servicer and (ii) a court of competent jurisdiction has determined by a final and non-appealable judgment that the Indemnified Amounts have resulted directly and solely from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent and (z) Indemnified Amounts to the extent determined by a final and non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted directly and solely from the bad faith, gross negligence, willful misconduct or material breach in bad faith of the express obligations under this Agreement on the part of such Indemnified Party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Indemnified Party shall promptly repay to the Borrower any and all amounts previously paid by the Borrower pursuant to the foregoing indemnification provisions to the extent such Indemnified Party is found by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction not to be entitled to indemnification hereunder as contemplated by the immediately preceding sentence.
Any amounts subject to the indemnification provisions of this Section 10.01(a) shall be paid by the Borrower to the related Indemnified Party on the Interest Payment Date that is at least five (5) Business Days immediately following demand therefor accompanied by reasonable supporting documentation and calculations in reasonable detail with respect to such amounts. An Indemnified Party need not demand payment from the Seller pursuant to the Purchase Agreement prior to seeking indemnification pursuant to this clause (a), nor shall any demand against the Seller provide a defense for the Borrower against payment hereunder except to the extent all such Indemnified Amounts have been satisfied in full.
(b)Settlements. No Indemnifying Party shall, without the prior written consent of all Indemnified Parties that are party thereto (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), settle or compromise or consent to the entry of any judgment in any pending or threatened claim, action or proceeding for which indemnification may be sought hereunder (a “Proceeding”), unless such settlement, compromise or consent includes an unconditional release of all such Indemnified Parties from all liability arising out of such claim, action or proceeding, and which settlement in each case must not include any admission of fault or liability adverse to any Indemnified Party other than the payment of money damages by the
44
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


Indemnifying Party. Each Indemnified Party who is not directly a party to this Agreement is an express third party beneficiary of this Agreement.
(c)Notice. In case any Proceeding is instituted involving any Indemnified Party for which indemnification is to be sought hereunder by such Indemnified Party, then such Indemnified Party will endeavor to notify the Indemnifying Party reasonably promptly following such Indemnified Party’s (x) receipt of actual knowledge of the commencement of any such Proceeding and (y) good faith determination that indemnification pursuant to this Agreement will be sought by such Indemnified Party; provided, however, that (i) the failure to so notify the Indemnifying Party will not relieve the Indemnifying Party from any liability that it may have to such Indemnified Parties pursuant to this Section 10.01 or from any liability that it may have to such Indemnified Parties other than pursuant to this Section 10.01, except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party’s rights and defense of such matter are materially and adversely prejudiced by such failure and (ii) no such notice shall be required to be delivered to the extent that such Indemnified Party believes reasonably and in good faith that such notice is not permitted by any applicable law, rule, regulation, court order, directive from any governmental authority or contractual obligation.

delayed), settle or compromise or consent to the entry of any judgment in any pending or threatened claim, action or proceeding for which indemnification may be sought hereunder, unless such settlement, compromise or consent includes an unconditional release of all such indemnified persons from all liability arising out of such claim, action or proceeding, and which settlement in each case must not include any admission of fault or liability adverse to any such indemnified person other than the payment of money damages by the Indemnifying Party. No Indemnifying Party shall be liable for any settlement of any such claim, action or proceeding effectuated without its consent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). Each such indemnified person who is not directly a party to this Agreement is an express third party beneficiary of this Agreement. In case any such claim, action or proceeding is instituted involving any such indemnified person for which indemnification is to be sought hereunder by such indemnified person, then such indemnified person will promptly notify the Indemnifying Party of the commencement of any such claim, action or proceeding; provided, however, that the failure to so notify the Indemnifying Party will not relieve the Indemnifying Party from any liability that it may have to such indemnified persons pursuant to this Section 13.04 or from any liability that it may have to such indemnified persons other than pursuant to this Section 13.04, except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party is materially prejudiced by such failure.

Section 13.05    Successors. The Collateral Agent may resign at any time by giving at least thirty (30) days’ prior written notice thereof to the other parties hereto; provided, that no such resignation shall become effective until a successor to such Person has been appointed hereunder. The Collateral Agent may be removed at any time for cause by written notice received by such Person from the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders. Upon any such resignation or removal, the Administrative Agent (with the consent of the Required Lenders and, unless (i) an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or (ii) such successor Collateral Agent is Wilmington Trust, National Association, the Borrower) shall have the right to appoint a successor Collateral Agent. If no successor shall have been so appointed and shall have accepted such appointment within thirty (30) days after the exiting Person’s giving notice of resignation or receipt of notice of removal, then the exiting Person may petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint a successor to such Person. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any successor Collateral Agent shall comply with the requirements of Section 26(a)(1) of the Investment Company Act and otherwise comply with the requirements of Section 3(a)(7)(a)(4) of the Rules promulgated under the Investment Company Act. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as the Collateral Agent hereunder by a successor, such successor shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the exiting Collateral Agent, and the exiting Person shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder; provided, however, that the exiting Collateral Agent shall, at the Borrower’s expense, promptly execute and deliver all further instruments and documents, and to take all further actions, that may be necessary or desirable, or that the Administrative Agent or the successor Collateral Agent may reasonably request, to perfect, protect or more fully evidence the security interest granted to the successor Collateral Agent pursuant to this Agreement or any other Transaction Document. After any exiting Collateral Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article XIII shall continue in effect for its benefit in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as the Collateral Agent hereunder.

Section 13.06    Duties of the Collateral Agent. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Collateral Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility in respect of (i) any recording, filing, or depositing of this Agreement or any other agreement or instrument, monitoring or filing any financing statement or continuation statement evidencing a security interest, the maintenance of any such recording, filing or depositing or to any re-recording, re-filing or re-depositing of any thereof, or otherwise monitoring the perfection, continuation or perfection or the sufficiency or validity of any security interest in or related to any lien or collateral. The Collateral Agent shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in
56
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


the custody and preservation of any Collateral in its possession if such Collateral is accorded treatment substantially equal to that which the Collateral Agent accords its own property.

ARTICLE XIV

THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT

Section 14.01    Authorization and Action. Each Lender hereby irrevocably appoints and authorizes the Administrative Agent to take such action as agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers under this Agreement and, to the extent applicable, the other Transaction Documents as are delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms hereof and thereof, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto, subject to the terms hereof. The Administrative Agent shall not have any duties or responsibilities, except those expressly set forth herein or in the other Transaction Documents, or any fiduciary relationship with any Secured Party, and no implied covenants, functions, responsibilities, duties or obligations or liabilities on the part of the Administrative Agent shall be read into this Agreement or any other Transaction Document to which the Administrative Agent is a party (if any) as duties on its part to be performed or observed. The Administrative Agent shall not have or be construed to have any other duties or responsibilities in respect of this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby. As to any matters not expressly provided for by this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents, the Administrative 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 written instructions of the Required Lenders; provided that the Administrative Agent shall not be required to take any action which exposes the Administrative Agent, in its judgment, to personal liability or which is contrary to this Agreement, the other Transaction Documents or Applicable Law, or would be, in its judgment, contrary to its duties hereunder, under any other Transaction Document or under Applicable Law. Each Lender agrees that in any instance in which the Transaction Documents provide that the Administrative Agent’s consent may not be unreasonably withheld, provide for the exercise of the Administrative Agent’s reasonable discretion, or provide to a similar effect, it shall not in its instructions (or, by refusing to provide instruction) to the Administrative Agent withhold its consent or exercise its discretion in an unreasonable manner.
Section 14.02    Delegation of Duties. The Administrative Agent may execute any of its duties under this Agreement and each other Transaction Document by or through agents or attorneys-in-fact and shall be entitled to advice of counsel concerning all matters pertaining to such duties. The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any agents or attorneys-in-fact selected by it with due care.

Section 14.03    Agent’s Reliance, Etc. Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its directors, officers, agents or employees shall be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it or them under or in connection with this Agreement or any of the other Transaction Documents, except for its or their own bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent: (i) may consult with legal counsel (including, without limitation, counsel for the Credit Parties or any of their Affiliates) and independent public accountants and other experts selected by it with due care and shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken in good faith by it in accordance with the advice of such counsel, accountants or experts; (ii) makes no warranty or representation to any Secured Party or any other Person and shall not be responsible to any Secured Party or any Person for any statements, warranties or representations (whether written or oral) made in or in connection with this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents by any other Person; (iii) shall not have any duty to monitor, ascertain or to inquire as to the performance or observance of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Agreement, the other Transaction
57
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


Documents or any related documents on the part of the Borrower or any other Person or to inspect the property (including the books and records) of the Credit Parties; (iv) shall not be responsible to any Secured Party or any other Person for the due execution (other than by it), legality, validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of any Collateral, this Agreement, the other Transaction Documents or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto or thereto or for the validity, perfection, priority or enforceability of the Liens on the Collateral; and (v) shall incur no liability under or in respect of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document by relying on, acting upon (or by refraining from action in reliance on) any notice, consent, certificate, instruction or waiver, report, statement, opinion, direction or other instrument or writing (which may be delivered by email if acceptable to it) reasonably and in good faith believed by it to be genuine and reasonably and in good faith believed by it to be signed or sent by the proper party or parties. The Administrative Agent shall not have any liability to any Credit Party, the Collateral Agent or any Lender or any other Person for any Credit Party’s, the Collateral Agent’s or any Lender’s, as the case may be, performance of, or failure to perform, any of their respective obligations and duties under this Agreement or any other Transaction Document.

(b)The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to assume the due authority of any signatory and genuineness of any signature appearing on any instrument or document it may receive. The Administrative Agent shall not be liable for any action taken in good faith and reasonably believed by it to be within the powers conferred upon it, or taken by it pursuant to any direction or instruction by which it is governed, or omitted to be taken by it by reason of the lack of direction or instruction required hereby for such action (including without limitation for refusing to exercise discretion or for withholding its consent in the absence of its receipt of, or resulting from a failure, delay or refusal on the part of the Required Lenders to provide, written instruction to exercise such discretion or grant such consent from the Required Lenders, as applicable). The Administrative Agent shall not be liable for any error of judgment made reasonably and in good faith unless it shall be proven by a court of competent jurisdiction that the Administrative Agent was grossly negligent in ascertaining the relevant facts. Nothing herein or in any Transaction Documents shall obligate the Administrative Agent to advance, expend or risk its own funds, or to take any action which in its reasonable judgment may cause it to incur any expense or financial or other liability for which it is not adequately indemnified. The Administrative Agent shall not be liable for any indirect, special or consequential damages (included but not limited to lost profits) whatsoever, even if it has been informed of the likelihood thereof and regardless of the form of action. The Administrative Agent shall not be charged with knowledge or notice of any matter unless actually known to a responsible officer of the Administrative Agent, or unless and to the extent written notice of such matter is received by the Administrative Agent at its address in accordance with Section 12.02. Any permissive grant of power to the Administrative Agent hereunder shall not be construed to be a duty to act. The Administrative Agent shall not be bound to make any investigation into the facts or matters stated in any resolution, certificate, statement, instrument, opinion, report, notice, request, consent, entitlement order, approval or other paper or document. The Administrative Agent shall not be liable for any error of judgment, or for any act done or step taken or omitted by it, reasonably and in good faith, or for any reasonable, good faith mistakes of fact or law, or for anything that it may do or refrain from doing in connection herewith except in the case of its willful misconduct, bad faith or grossly negligent performance or omission of its duties.
(c)The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible or liable for delays or failures in performance resulting from acts beyond its control. Such acts shall include but not be limited to acts of God, strikes, lockouts, riots, acts of war, epidemics, governmental regulations imposed after the fact, fire, communication line failures, computer viruses, power failures, earthquakes or other disasters.
58
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


Section 14.04    Indemnification. Each of the Lenders agrees to indemnify and hold the Administrative Agent harmless (to the extent not reimbursed by or on behalf of the Credit Parties) from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and expenses) or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by, or asserted against the Administrative Agent in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document or any action taken or omitted by the Administrative Agent under this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, in each case, to the extent that Borrower or any Credit Party is required to and does not indemnify the Administrative Agent pursuant to the Transaction Documents; provided that no Lender shall be liable to the Administrative Agent for any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting from the Administrative Agent’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. The rights of the Administrative Agent and obligations of the Lenders under or pursuant to this Section 14.04 shall survive the termination of this Agreement, and the earlier removal or resignation of the Administrative Agent hereunder.

Section 14.05    Successor Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent may resign at any time by giving at least thirty (30) days’ prior written notice thereof to the other parties hereto; provided, that no such resignation shall become effective until a successor to such Person has been appointed hereunder. Upon any such resignation or removal, the Required Lenders shall have the right, with the Borrower’s prior written consent (unless (i) an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or (ii) such successor Administrative Agent is Wilmington Trust, National Association), to appoint a successor Administrative Agent. If no successor shall have been so appointed and shall have accepted such appointment within thirty (30) days after the exiting Administrative Agent’s giving notice of resignation or receipt of notice of removal, then the exiting Administrative Agent may petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint a successor to such Administrative Agent. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as the Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor, such successor shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the exiting Administrative Agent, and the exiting Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. After any exiting Administrative Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article XIV shall continue in effect for its benefit in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as the Administrative Agent hereunder.

Section 14.06    Administrative Agent’s Capacity as a Lender. The Person serving as the Administrative Agent hereunder shall have the same rights and powers in its capacity as a Lender as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent, and such Person and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to and generally engage in any kind of business with the Borrower or any other Affiliate thereof as if it were not the Administrative Agent hereunder. The Administrative Agent, in its capacity as Administrative Agent, shall not, by virtue of its acting in any such other capacities, be deemed to have duties or responsibilities hereunder or be held to a standard of care in connection with the performance of its duties as Administrative Agent other than as expressly provided in this Agreement. The Administrative Agent may act as Administrative Agent without regard to and without additional duties or liabilities arising from its role as such administrator or agent or arising from its acting in any such other capacity. None of the provisions to this Agreement shall require the Administrative Agent to expend or risk its own funds or otherwise to incur any liability, financial or otherwise, in the performance of any of its duties hereunder, or in the exercise of any of its rights or powers if it shall have reasonable grounds for believing that repayment of such funds or indemnity satisfactory to it against such risk or liability is not assured to it.

Section 14.07    Delivery of Notices and Reports. Promptly upon receipt thereof, the Administrative Agent shall distribute all notices and reports received by it pursuant to this
59
|US-DOCS\130674191.18||


Agreement to each Lender at the address for such Lender specified in the related Assignment and Acceptance.
