                            REVOLVING CREDIT FACILITY

         SECTION 2.1 Revolving Credit Loans. Subject to the terms and conditions
of this Agreement, and in reliance upon the representations and warranties set
forth herein, each Revolving Credit Lender severally agrees to make Revolving
Credit Loans to the Borrower from time to time from the Closing Date through,
but not including, the Revolving Credit Maturity Date as requested by the
Borrower in accordance with the terms of Section 2.3; provided, that (a) the
aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Revolving Credit Loans (after
giving effect to any amount requested) shall not exceed the Revolving Credit
Commitment less the sum of all outstanding Swingline Loans and outstanding L/C
Obligations and (b) the principal amount of outstanding Revolving Credit Loans
from any Revolving Credit Lender to the Borrower shall not at any time exceed
such Revolving Credit Lender's Revolving Credit Commitment less such Revolving

                                       27

<PAGE>

Credit Lender's Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of outstanding L/C
Obligations and outstanding Swingline Loans. Each Revolving Credit Loan by a
Revolving Credit Lender shall be in a principal amount equal to such Revolving
Lender's Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of the aggregate principal
amount of Revolving Credit Loans requested on such occasion. Subject to the
terms and conditions hereof, the Borrower may borrow, repay and reborrow
Revolving Credit Loans hereunder until the Revolving Credit Maturity Date.

         SECTION 2.2 Swingline Loans.

         (a) Availability. Subject to the terms and conditions of this
Agreement, the Swingline Lender agrees to make Swingline Loans to the Borrower
from time to time from the Closing Date through, but not including, the
Swingline Termination Date; provided, that the aggregate principal amount of all
outstanding Swingline Loans (after giving effect to any amount requested), shall
not exceed the lesser of (i) the Revolving Credit Commitment less the sum of all
outstanding Revolving Credit Loans and the L/C Obligations and (ii) the
Swingline Commitment.

         (b) Refunding.

             (i) Swingline Loans shall be refunded by the Revolving Credit
Lenders on demand by the Swingline Lender. Such refundings shall be made by the
Revolving Credit Lenders in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit
Commitment Percentages and shall thereafter be reflected as Revolving Credit
Loans of the Revolving Credit Lenders on the books and records of the
Administrative Agent. Each Revolving Credit Lender shall fund its respective
Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of Revolving Credit Loans as required to
repay Swingline Loans outstanding to the Swingline Lender upon demand by the
Swingline Lender but in no event later than 2:00 p.m. on the next succeeding
Business Day after such demand is made. No Revolving Credit Lender's obligation
to fund its respective Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of a Swingline
Loan shall be affected by any other Revolving Credit Lender's failure to fund
its Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of a Swingline Loan, nor shall any
Revolving Credit Lender's Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage be increased as
a result of any such failure of any other Revolving Credit Lender to fund its
Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of a Swingline Loan.

             (ii) The Borrower shall pay to the Swingline Lender on demand the
amount of such Swingline Loans to the extent amounts received from the Revolving
Credit Lenders are not sufficient to repay in full the outstanding Swingline
Loans requested or required to be refunded. In addition, the Borrower hereby
authorizes the Administrative Agent to charge any account maintained by the
Borrower with the Swingline Lender (up to the amount available therein) in order
to immediately pay the Swingline Lender the amount of such Swingline Loans to
the extent amounts received from the Revolving Credit Lenders are not sufficient
to repay in full the outstanding Swingline Loans requested or required to be
refunded. If any portion of any such amount paid to the Swingline Lender shall
be recovered by or on behalf of the Borrower from the Swingline Lender in
bankruptcy or otherwise, the amount so recovered shall be ratably shared among
all the Revolving Credit Lenders in accordance with their respective Revolving
Credit Commitment Percentages (unless the amounts so recovered by or on behalf
of the Borrower pertain to a Swingline Loan extended after the occurrence and

                                       28

<PAGE>

during the continuance of an Event of Default of which the Administrative Agent
has received notice in the manner required pursuant to Section 13.3 and which
such Event of Default has not been waived by the Required Lenders or the
Lenders, as applicable).

             (iii) Each Revolving Credit Lender acknowledges and agrees that its
obligation to refund Swingline Loans in accordance with the terms of this
Section is absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any
circumstance whatsoever, including, without limitation, non-satisfaction of the
conditions set forth in Article VI. Further, each Revolving Credit Lender agrees
and acknowledges that if prior to the refunding of any outstanding Swingline
Loans pursuant to this Section, one of the events described in Section 12.1(j)
or (k) shall have occurred, each Revolving Credit Lender will, on the date the
applicable Revolving Credit Loan would have been made, purchase an undivided
participating interest in the Swingline Loan to be refunded in an amount equal
to its Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of the aggregate amount of such
Swingline Loan. Each Revolving Credit Lender will immediately transfer to the
Swingline Lender, in immediately available funds, the amount of its
participation and upon receipt thereof the Swingline Lender will deliver to such
Revolving Credit Lender a certificate evidencing such participation dated the
date of receipt of such funds and for such amount. Whenever, at any time after
the Swingline Lender has received from any Revolving Credit Lender such
Revolving Credit Lender's participating interest in a Swingline Loan, the
Swingline Lender receives any payment on account thereof, the Swingline Lender
will distribute to such Revolving Credit Lender its participating interest in
such amount (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to
reflect the period of time during which such Revolving Credit Lender's
participating interest was outstanding and funded).

         SECTION 2.3 Procedure for Advances of Revolving Credit Loans and
Swingline Loans.

         (a) Requests for Borrowing. The Borrower shall give the Administrative
Agent irrevocable prior written notice substantially in the form of EXHIBIT B (a
"Notice of Borrowing") not later than 12:00 p.m. (i) on the same Business Day
for each Base Rate Loan and each Swingline Loan and (ii) at least three (3)
Business Days before each LIBOR Rate Loan, of its intention to borrow,
specifying (A) the date of such borrowing, which shall be a Business Day, (B)
the amount of such borrowing, which shall be, (x) with respect to Base Rate
Loans (other than Swingline Loans), (1) in an aggregate principal amount of
$1,000,000 or a whole multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof or (2) equal to the
remaining available balance of the applicable Commitments, (y) with respect to
LIBOR Rate Loans in an aggregate principal amount of $1,000,000 or a whole
multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof and (z) with respect to Swingline Loans
in an aggregate principal amount of $500,000 or a whole multiple of $100,000 in
excess thereof, (C) whether such Loan is to be a Revolving Credit Loan or
Swingline Loan, (D) in the case of a Revolving Credit Loan whether the Loans are
to be LIBOR Rate Loans or Base Rate Loans, and (E) in the case of a LIBOR Rate
Loan, the duration of the Interest Period applicable thereto. A Notice of
Borrowing received after 12:00 p.m. shall be deemed received on the next
Business Day. The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Lenders of each
Notice of Borrowing.

         (b) Disbursement of Revolving Credit and Swingline Loans. Not later
than 2:00 p.m. on the proposed borrowing date, (i) each Lender will make
available to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Borrower, at the


                                       29

<PAGE>

office of the Administrative Agent in funds immediately available to the
Administrative Agent, such Lender's Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of
the Revolving Credit Loans to be made on such borrowing date and (ii) the
Swingline Lender will make available to the Administrative Agent, for the
account of the Borrower, at the office of the Administrative Agent in funds
immediately available to the Administrative Agent, the Swingline Loans to be
made on such borrowing date. The Borrower hereby irrevocably authorizes the
Administrative Agent to disburse the proceeds of each borrowing requested
pursuant to this Section in immediately available funds by crediting or wiring
such proceeds to the deposit account of the Borrower identified in the most
recent notice substantially in the form of EXHIBIT C (a "Notice of Account
Designation") delivered by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent or as may be
otherwise agreed upon by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent from time to
time. Subject to Section 5.7 hereof, the Administrative Agent shall not be
obligated to disburse the portion of the proceeds of any Revolving Credit Loan
requested pursuant to this Section to the extent that any Lender has not made
available to the Administrative Agent its Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage
of such Loan. Revolving Credit Loans to be made for the purpose of refunding
Swingline Loans shall be made by the Revolving Credit Lenders as provided in
Section 2.2(b).

         SECTION 2.4 Repayment and Prepayment of Revolving Credit and Swingline
Loans.

         (a) Repayment on Termination Date. The Borrower hereby agrees to repay
the outstanding principal amount of (i) all Revolving Credit Loans in full on
the Revolving Credit Maturity Date, and (ii) all Swingline Loans in accordance
with Section 2.2(b), together, in each case, with all accrued but unpaid
interest thereon.

         (b) Mandatory Prepayments. If at any time the outstanding principal
amount of all Revolving Credit Loans plus the sum of all outstanding Swingline
Loans and L/C Obligations exceeds the Revolving Credit Commitment, the Borrower
agrees to repay immediately upon notice from the Administrative Agent, by
payment to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders, an amount
equal to such excess with each such repayment applied first to the principal
amount of outstanding Swingline Loans, second to the principal amount of
outstanding Revolving Credit Loans and third, with respect to any Letters of
Credit then outstanding, a payment of cash collateral into a cash collateral
account opened by the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Lenders in an
amount equal to the aggregate then undrawn and unexpired amount of such Letters
of Credit (such cash collateral to be applied in accordance with Section
12.2(b)).

         (c) Optional Prepayments. The Borrower may at any time and from time to
time prepay, without premium or penalty (except for amounts due under Section
5.9 hereof), Revolving Credit Loans and Swingline Loans, in whole or in part,
with irrevocable prior written notice to the Administrative Agent substantially
in the form of EXHIBIT D (a "Notice of Prepayment") given not later than 12:00
p.m. (i) on the same Business Day as each Base Rate Loan and each Swingline Loan
and (ii) at least three (3) Business Days before each LIBOR Rate Loan,
specifying the date and amount of prepayment and whether the prepayment is of
LIBOR Rate Loans, Base Rate Loans, Swingline Loans or a combination thereof,
and, if of a combination thereof, the amount allocable to each. Upon receipt of

                                       30

<PAGE>

such notice, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender. If any
such notice is given, the amount specified in such notice shall be due and
payable on the date set forth in such notice. Partial prepayments shall be in an
aggregate amount of $1,000,000 or a whole multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof
with respect to Base Rate Loans (other than Swingline Loans), $1,000,000 or a
whole multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof with respect to LIBOR Rate Loans
and $100,000 or a whole multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof with respect to
Swingline Loans. A Notice of Prepayment received after 12:00 p.m. shall be
deemed received on the next Business Day. Each such repayment shall be
accompanied by any amount required to be paid pursuant to Section 5.9 hereof.

         (d) Limitation on Prepayment of LIBOR Rate Loans. The Borrower may not
prepay any LIBOR Rate Loan on any day other than on the last day of the Interest
Period applicable thereto unless such prepayment is accompanied by any amount
required to be paid pursuant to Section 5.9 hereof.

         (e) Hedging Agreements. No repayment or prepayment pursuant to this
Section shall affect any of the Borrower's obligations under any Hedging
Agreement.

         SECTION 2.5 Permanent Reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitment.

         (a) Voluntary Reduction. The Borrower shall have the right at any time
and from time to time, upon at least five (5) Business Days prior written notice
to the Administrative Agent, to permanently reduce, without premium or penalty,
(i) the entire Revolving Credit Commitment at any time or (ii) portions of the
Revolving Credit Commitment, from time to time, in an aggregate principal amount
not less than $3,000,000 or any whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof.
Any reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitments shall be applied to the
Revolving Credit Commitment of each Revolving Credit Lender according to its
Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage. All commitment fees accrued until the
effective date of any termination of the Revolving Credit Commitments shall be
paid on the effective date of such termination.

         (b) Corresponding Payment. Each permanent reduction permitted pursuant
to Section 2.5(a) or required pursuant to Section 2.4(b) shall be accompanied by
a payment of principal sufficient to reduce the aggregate outstanding Revolving
Credit Loans, Swingline Loans and L/C Obligations, as applicable, after such
reduction to the Revolving Credit Commitment as so reduced and if the Revolving
Credit Commitment as so reduced is less than the aggregate amount of all
outstanding Letters of Credit, the Borrower shall be required to deposit cash
collateral in a cash collateral account opened by the Administrative Agent in an
amount equal to the aggregate then undrawn and unexpired amount of such Letters
of Credit. Such cash collateral shall be applied in accordance with Section
12.2(b). Any reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitment to zero shall be
accompanied by payment of all outstanding Revolving Credit Loans and Swingline
Loans (and furnishing of cash collateral satisfactory to the Administrative
Agent for all L/C Obligations) and shall result in the termination of the
Revolving Credit Commitment and the Swingline Commitment and the Revolving
Credit Facility. Such cash collateral shall be applied in accordance with
Section 12.2(b). If the reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitment requires
the repayment of any LIBOR Rate Loan, such repayment shall be accompanied by any
amount required to be paid pursuant to Section 5.9 hereof.

Credit Facility shall terminate on the Revolving Credit Maturity Date.

         SECTION 2.7 Increase in Revolving Credit Commitment.

         (a) Subject to the conditions set forth below, at any time prior to the
Revolving Credit Maturity Date, the Borrower, with the consent of the Required
Lenders, shall have the right upon not less than thirty (30) days' prior written
notice (an "Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Notification") to the
Administrative Agent to increase the Revolving Credit Commitment in an aggregate
principal amount as may be agreed to by the Required Lenders. Such Incremental
Revolving Credit Commitment Notification shall specify the applicable
Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Effective Date. The Borrower shall not
deliver more than four (4) Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Notifications
during the term of this Agreement subsequent to the Closing Date.

         (b) Increases in the Revolving Credit Commitment pursuant to this
Section 2.7 shall be obtained from existing Lenders or from other banks,
financial institutions or investment funds that qualify as Eligible Assignees
(each such other bank, financial institution or investment fund, a "New
Revolving Lender" and, collectively with the existing Lenders providing a
portion of the proposed increase in the Revolving Credit Commitment pursuant to
this Section 2.7, the "Incremental Revolving Credit Lenders"), in each case in
accordance with this Section 2.7; provided that no existing Lender shall have
any obligation to increase its Revolving Credit Commitment pursuant to this
Section 2.7 and the failure by any existing Lender to respond to a request for
such increase shall be deemed to be a refusal of such request by such existing
Lender.

         (c) The following terms and conditions shall apply to each increase in
the Revolving Credit Commitment pursuant to this Section 2.7:

             (i) such increase in the Revolving Credit Commitment pursuant to
this Section 2.7 (and any Revolving Credit Loans made thereunder) shall

the other Extensions of Credit on a pari passu basis;

<PAGE>

             (iv) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be
continuing as of the applicable Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment
Effective Date or after giving effect to such increase in the Revolving Credit
Commitment pursuant to this Section 2.7;

             (v) the representations and warranties made by each Credit Party in
this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be true and correct on and as
of the applicable Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Effective Date with
the same effect as if made on and as of such date (other than those
representations and warranties that by their terms speak as of a particular
date, which representations and warranties shall be true and correct as of such
particular date);

             (vi) the Administrative Agent shall have received a resolution duly
adopted by the board of directors of each Credit Party authorizing such increase
in the Revolving Credit Commitment pursuant to this Section 2.7;

             (vii) unless otherwise agreed to by the Required Lenders, the
amount of such increase in the Revolving Credit Commitment pursuant to this
Section 2.7 shall not be less than a minimum principal amount of $15,000,000;

             (viii) the Borrower and each Incremental Revolving Credit Lender
shall execute and deliver a Lender Addition and Acknowledgement Agreement to the
Administrative Agent for its acceptance and recording in the Register, which
shall be acknowledged by the Administrative Agent and each Guarantor and shall
be in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent;

             (ix) the Administrative Agent shall have received any documents or
information in connection with such increase in the Revolving Credit Commitment
pursuant to this Section 2.7 as it may request in its reasonable discretion; and

             (x) the outstanding Revolving Credit Loans and Revolving Credit
Commitment Percentages of L/C Obligations will be reallocated by the
Administrative Agent on the applicable Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment
Effective Date among the Lenders in accordance with their revised Revolving
Credit Commitment Percentages (and the Lenders agree to make all payments and
adjustments necessary to effect such reallocation and the Borrower shall pay any
and all costs required pursuant to Section 5.9 in connection with such
reallocation as if such reallocation were a repayment).

         (d) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 14.2 to the contrary, the
Administrative Agent is hereby authorized to execute and deliver amendment
documentation evidencing such amendments (or any other amendments necessary to
effectuate the proposed increase in the Revolving Credit Commitment pursuant to
this Section 2.7 on the terms set forth above) on behalf of the Lenders;
provided that such amendment shall not modify this Agreement or any other Loan
Document in any manner materially adverse to any Lender without the consent of
such Lenders adversely affected thereby in accordance with Section 14.2 hereof.

         (e) Upon the execution, delivery, acceptance and recording of the

<PAGE>

set forth in the Register and all the rights and obligations of a Lender with a
Revolving Credit Commitment hereunder and (ii) all Revolving Credit Loans made
on account of any increase in the Revolving Credit Commitment pursuant to this
Section 2.7 shall bear interest at the rate applicable to the Revolving Credit
Loans immediately prior to giving effect to such increase in the Revolving
Credit Commitment pursuant to this Section 2.7.

         (f) The Administrative Agent shall maintain a copy of each Lender
Addition and Acknowledgment Agreement delivered to it in accordance with Section
14.10(c).

                                  ARTICLE III

                            LETTER OF CREDIT FACILITY

         SECTION 3.1 L/C Commitment. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof,
the Issuing Lender, in reliance on the agreements of the other Lenders set forth
in Section 3.4(a), agrees to issue standby letters of credit ("Letters of
Credit") for the account of the Borrower on any Business Day from the Closing
Date through but not including the Revolving Credit Maturity Date in such form
as may be approved from time to time by the Issuing Lender; provided, that the
Issuing Lender shall have no obligation to issue any Letter of Credit if, after
giving effect to such issuance, (a) the L/C Obligations would exceed the L/C
Commitment or (b) the aggregate principal amount of outstanding Revolving Credit
Loans, plus the aggregate principal amount of outstanding Swingline Loans, plus
the aggregate amount of L/C Obligations would exceed the Revolving Credit
Commitment. Each Letter of Credit shall (i) be denominated in Dollars in a
minimum amount of $100,000, or such lesser amount as is acceptable to the
Issuing Lender, (ii) be a standby letter of credit issued to support obligations
of the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, contingent or otherwise, incurred in
the ordinary course of business, (iii) expire (including all rights of the
Borrower or the beneficiary to require renewal thereof) on a date no more than
twelve (12) months after the date of issuance or last renewal of such Letter of
Credit, which date shall be no later than the fifth (5th) Business Day prior to
the Revolving Credit Maturity Date but a Letter of Credit may by its terms be
automatically renewable annually unless the Issuing Lender notifies the
beneficiary thereof of its election not to renew such Letter of Credit (which
the Issuing Lender agrees to do on and subject to the terms of Section 3.2(b))
and (iv) be subject to the Uniform Customs and/or ISP98, as set forth in the
Letter of Credit Application or as determined by the Issuing Lender and, to the
extent not inconsistent therewith, the laws of the State of New York. The
Issuing Lender shall not at any time be obligated to issue any Letter of Credit
hereunder if such issuance would conflict with, or cause the Issuing Lender or
any L/C Participant to exceed any limits imposed by, any Applicable Law.
References herein to "issue" and derivations thereof with respect to Letters of
Credit shall also include extensions or modifications of any outstanding Letters
of Credit, unless the context otherwise requires.

         SECTION 3.2 Procedure for Issuance of Letters of Credit/Automatic
Renewal.

         (a) The Borrower may from time to time request that the Issuing Lender
issue a Letter of Credit by delivering to the Issuing Lender at the
Administrative Agent's Office a Letter of Credit Application therefor, completed
to the satisfaction of the Issuing Lender, and such other certificates,
documents and other papers and information as the Issuing Lender may request.
Upon receipt of any Letter of Credit Application, the Issuing Lender shall

                                       34

<PAGE>

process such Letter of Credit Application and the certificates, documents and
other papers and information delivered to it in connection therewith in
accordance with its customary procedures and shall, subject to Section 3.1 and
Article VI, promptly issue the Letter of Credit requested thereby (but in no
event shall the Issuing Lender be required to issue any Letter of Credit earlier
than three (3) Business Days after its receipt of the Letter of Credit
Application therefor and all such other certificates, documents and other papers
and information relating thereto) by issuing the original of such Letter of
Credit to the beneficiary thereof or as otherwise may be agreed by the Issuing
Lender and the Borrower. The Issuing Lender shall promptly furnish to the
Borrower a copy of such Letter of Credit and promptly notify each Lender of the
issuance and upon request by any Lender, furnish to such Lender a copy of such
Letter of Credit and the amount of such Lender's participation therein.

         (b) If any Letter of Credit shall provide for the automatic renewal of
the expiry date thereof, unless the Issuing Lender gives notice that such expiry
date shall not be renewed, then the Issuing Lender shall allow such Letter of
Credit to be renewed unless it shall have received, at least fifteen (15) days
prior to the date on which such notice of nonrenewal must be delivered under
such Letter of Credit (or such shorter period acceptable to the Issuing Lender)
(i) notice from the Administrative Agent that such Issuing Lender is not
permitted pursuant to this Agreement to renew such Letter of Credit (or Letters
of Credit generally), or (ii) notice from the Borrower that it does not want the
Issuing Lender to renew such Letter of Credit.

         SECTION 3.3 Commissions and Other Charges.

         (a) Letter of Credit Commissions. The Borrower shall pay to the
Administrative Agent, for the account of the Issuing Lender and the L/C
Participants, a letter of credit commission with respect to each Letter of
Credit in an amount equal to the face amount of such Letter of Credit multiplied
by the Applicable Margin with respect to Revolving Credit Loans that are LIBOR
Rate Loans (determined on a per annum basis). Such commission shall be payable
quarterly in arrears on the last Business Day of each calendar quarter
commencing with the first such date to occur after the issuance of such Letter
of Credit, on the Revolving Credit Maturity Date and thereafter on demand of the
Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall, promptly following its
receipt thereof, distribute to the Issuing Lender and the L/C Participants all
commissions received pursuant to this Section in accordance with their
respective Revolving Credit Commitment Percentages.

         (b) Issuance Fee. In addition to the foregoing commission, the Borrower
shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Issuing Lender, an
issuance fee with respect to each Letter of Credit in an amount equal to the
face amount of such Letter of Credit multiplied by one eighth of one percent
(0.125%) per annum. Such issuance fee shall be payable quarterly in arrears on
the last Business Day of each calendar quarter commencing with the first such
date to occur after the issuance of such Letter of Credit, on the Revolving
Credit Maturity Date and thereafter on demand of the Administrative Agent.

         (c) Other Costs. In addition to the foregoing fees and commissions, the
Borrower shall pay or reimburse the Issuing Lender for such normal and customary
costs and expenses as are reasonably incurred or charged by the Issuing Lender

         SECTION 3.4 L/C Participations.

         (a) The Issuing Lender irrevocably agrees to grant and hereby grants to
each L/C Participant, and, to induce the Issuing Lender to issue Letters of
Credit hereunder, each L/C Participant irrevocably agrees to accept and purchase
and hereby accepts and purchases from the Issuing Lender, on the terms and
conditions hereinafter stated, for such L/C Participant's own account and risk
an undivided interest equal to such L/C Participant's Revolving Credit
Commitment Percentage in the Issuing Lender's obligations and rights under and
in respect of each Letter of Credit issued hereunder and the amount of each
draft paid by the Issuing Lender thereunder. Each L/C Participant
unconditionally and irrevocably agrees with the Issuing Lender that, if a draft
is paid under any Letter of Credit for which the Issuing Lender is not
reimbursed in full by the Borrower through a Revolving Credit Loan or otherwise
in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, such L/C Participant shall pay
to the Issuing Lender upon demand at the Issuing Lender's address for notices
specified herein an amount equal to such L/C Participant's Revolving Credit
Commitment Percentage of the amount of such draft, or any part thereof, which is
not so reimbursed.

         (b) Upon becoming aware of any amount required to be paid by any L/C
Participant to the Issuing Lender pursuant to Section 3.4(a) in respect of any
unreimbursed portion of any payment made by the Issuing Lender under any Letter
of Credit, the Issuing Lender shall notify each L/C Participant of the amount
and due date of such required payment and such L/C Participant shall pay to the
Issuing Lender the amount specified on the applicable due date. If any such
amount is paid to the Issuing Lender after the date such payment is due, such
L/C Participant shall pay to the Issuing Lender on demand, in addition to such
amount, the product of (i) such amount, times (ii) the daily average Federal
Funds Rate as determined by the Administrative Agent during the period from and
including the date such payment is due to the date on which such payment is
immediately available to the Issuing Lender, times (iii) a fraction the
numerator of which is the number of days that elapse during such period and the
denominator of which is 360. A certificate of the Issuing Lender with respect to
any amounts owing under this Section shall be conclusive in the absence of
manifest error. With respect to payment to the Issuing Lender of the
unreimbursed amounts described in this Section, if the L/C Participants receive
notice that any such payment is due (A) prior to 2:00 p.m. on any Business Day,
such payment shall be due that Business Day, and (B) after 2:00 p.m. on any
Business Day, such payment shall be due on the following Business Day.

         (c) Whenever, at any time after the Issuing Lender has made payment
under any Letter of Credit and has received from any L/C Participant its
Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of such payment in accordance with this
Section, the Issuing Lender receives any payment related to such Letter of
Credit (whether directly from the Borrower or otherwise), or any payment of
interest on account thereof, the Issuing Lender will distribute to such L/C
Participant its pro rata share thereof; provided, that in the event that any
such payment received by the Issuing Lender shall be required to be returned by
the Issuing Lender, such L/C Participant shall return to the Issuing Lender the
portion thereof previously distributed by the Issuing Lender to it.

         SECTION 3.5 Reimbursement Obligation of the Borrower. In the event of
any drawing under any Letter of Credit, the Borrower agrees to reimburse (either

                                       36

<PAGE>

with the proceeds of a Revolving Credit Loan as provided for in this Section or
with funds from other sources), in same day funds, the Issuing Lender on each
date on which the Issuing Lender notifies the Borrower of the date and amount of
a draft paid under any Letter of Credit for the amount of (a) such draft so paid
and (b) any amounts referred to in Section 3.3(c) incurred by the Issuing Lender
in connection with such payment. Unless the Borrower shall immediately notify
the Issuing Lender that the Borrower intends to reimburse the Issuing Lender for
such drawing from other sources or funds, the Borrower shall be deemed to have
timely given a Notice of Borrowing to the Administrative Agent requesting that
the Revolving Credit Lenders make a Revolving Credit Loan bearing interest at
the Base Rate on such date in the amount of (a) such draft so paid and (b) any
amounts referred to in Section 3.3(c) incurred by the Issuing Lender in
connection with such payment, and the Revolving Credit Lenders shall make a
Revolving Credit Loan bearing interest at the Base Rate in such amount, the
proceeds of which shall be applied to reimburse the Issuing Lender for the
amount of the related drawing and costs and expenses. Each Revolving Credit
Lender acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to fund a Revolving Credit
Loan in accordance with this Section to reimburse the Issuing Lender for any
draft paid under a Letter of Credit is absolute and unconditional and shall not
be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including, without limitation,
non-satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 2.3(a) or Article VI. If
the Borrower has elected to pay the amount of such drawing with funds from other
sources and shall fail to reimburse the Issuing Lender as provided above, the
unreimbursed amount of such drawing shall bear interest at the rate which would
be payable on any outstanding Base Rate Loans which were then overdue from the
date such amounts become payable (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or
otherwise) until payment in full.

         SECTION 3.6 Obligations Absolute. The Borrower's obligations under this
Article III (including, without limitation, the Reimbursement Obligation) shall
be absolute and unconditional under any and all circumstances and irrespective
of any set-off, counterclaim or defense to payment which the Borrower may have
or have had against the Issuing Lender or any beneficiary of a Letter of Credit
or any other Person. The Borrower also agrees that the Issuing Lender and the
L/C Participants shall not be responsible for, and the Borrower's Reimbursement
Obligation under Section 3.5 shall not be affected by, among other things, the
validity or genuineness of documents or of any endorsements thereon, even though
such documents shall in fact prove to be invalid, fraudulent or forged (unless
caused by the Issuing Lender's gross negligence or willful misconduct, as
determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final nonappealable
judgment), or any dispute between or among the Borrower and any beneficiary of
any Letter of Credit or any other party to which such Letter of Credit may be
transferred or any claims whatsoever of the Borrower against any beneficiary of
such Letter of Credit or any such transferee. The Issuing Lender shall not be
liable for any error, omission, interruption or delay in transmission, dispatch
or delivery of any message or advice, however transmitted, in connection with
any Letter of Credit, except for errors or omissions caused by the Issuing
Lender's gross negligence or willful misconduct, as determined by a court of
competent jurisdiction by final nonappealable judgment. The Borrower agrees that
any action taken or omitted by the Issuing Lender under or in connection with
any Letter of Credit or the related drafts or documents, if done in the absence
of gross negligence or willful misconduct shall be binding on the Borrower and
shall not result in any liability of the Issuing Lender or any L/C Participant
to the Borrower. The responsibility of the Issuing Lender to the Borrower in
connection with any draft presented for payment under any Letter of Credit
shall, in addition to any payment obligation expressly provided for in such

                                       37

<PAGE>

Letter of Credit, be limited to determining that the documents (including each
draft) delivered under such Letter of Credit in connection with such presentment
are in conformity with such Letter of Credit.

         SECTION 3.7 Effect of Letter of Credit Application. To the extent that
any provision of any Letter of Credit Application related to any Letter of
Credit is inconsistent with the provisions of this Article III, the provisions
of this Article III shall apply.

                                   ARTICLE IV

                         INCREMENTAL TERM LOAN FACILITY

         SECTION 4.1 Incremental Term Loans.

         (a) Upon the execution, delivery, acceptance and recording of this
Agreement, from and after the Closing Date, each Incremental Term Loan Lender
shall have an Incremental Term Loan Commitment as set forth in the Register and
all the rights and obligations of a Lender with respect to such an Incremental
Term Loan Commitment hereunder. The applicable Incremental Term Loan Lenders
shall make the 2008-1 Incremental Term Loan to the Borrower on the Closing Date
in an amount equal to the Incremental Term Loan Commitment of each Incremental
Term Loan Lender with respect to such 2008-1 Incremental Term Loan as agreed
upon pursuant to subsection (c) below.

         (b) Subject to the conditions set forth below, at any time prior to the
Revolving Credit Maturity Date, the Borrower, with the consent of the Required
Lenders, shall have the right upon not less than thirty (30) days' prior written
notice (an "Incremental Term Loan Notification") to the Administrative Agent to
request Incremental Term Loans in an aggregate principal amount as may be agreed
to by the Required Lenders. Such Incremental Term Loan Notification shall
specify the applicable Incremental Term Loan Effective Date, and on such date,
the Borrower shall deliver a Notice of Borrowing with respect to such
Incremental Term Loan. The Borrower shall not deliver more than two (2)
Incremental Term Loan Notifications during the term of this Agreement subsequent
to the Closing Date.

         (c) Each Incremental Term Loan shall be obtained from existing Lenders
or from other banks, financial institutions or investment funds that qualify as
Eligible Assignees (each such other bank, financial institution or investment
fund, a "New Term Lender" and, collectively with the existing Lenders providing
an Incremental Term Loan Commitment with respect to such Incremental Term Loan,
the "Incremental Term Loan Lenders"), in each case in accordance with this
Section 4.1; provided that no existing Lender shall have any obligation to
provide any portion of such Incremental Term Loan and the failure by any
existing Lender to respond to a request for an Incremental Term Loan shall be
deemed to be a refusal of such request by such existing Lender.

         (d) The following terms and conditions shall apply to each Incremental
Term Loan:

             (i) such Incremental Term Loan shall constitute Obligations of the
Borrower and shall be secured and guaranteed with the other Extensions of Credit
on a pari passu basis;

                                       38

<PAGE>

             (ii) the Borrower shall, upon the request of any Incremental Term
Loan Lender, execute such Incremental Term Notes as are necessary to reflect the
Incremental Term Loan of such Incremental Term Loan Lender;

             (iii) the Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall have received
from the Borrower an Officer's Compliance Certificate, in form and substance
reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, demonstrating that, as of
the applicable Incremental Term Loan Effective Date and after giving effect
thereto and any Extensions of Credit made or to be made in connection therewith,
the Borrower and its Subsidiaries are in pro forma compliance with the financial
covenants set forth in Article X;

             (iv) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be
continuing as of the applicable Incremental Term Loan Effective Date or after
giving effect to the making of any such Incremental Term Loan;

             (v) the representations and warranties made by each Credit Party in
this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be true and correct on and as
of the applicable Incremental Term Loan Effective Date with the same effect as
if made on and as of such date (other than those representations and warranties
that by their terms speak as of a particular date, which representations and
warranties shall be true and correct as of such particular date);

             (vi) the Administrative Agent shall have received a resolution duly
adopted by the board of directors of each Credit Party authorizing such
Incremental Term Loan;

             (vii) unless otherwise agreed to by the Required Lenders, the
amount of each such Incremental Term Loan obtained hereunder shall not be less
than a minimum principal amount of $25,000,000;

             (viii) the Borrower and each Incremental Term Loan Lender shall
execute and deliver an Incremental Term Loan Agreement to the Administrative
Agent, for its acceptance and recording in the Register, which shall be
acknowledged by the Administrative Agent and each Guarantor and shall be in form
and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent; and

             (ix) the Administrative Agent shall have received any documents or
information in connection with such Incremental Term Loan as it may request in
its reasonable discretion.

         (e) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 14.2 to the contrary, the
Administrative Agent is hereby authorized to execute and deliver amendment
documentation evidencing such amendments (or any other amendments necessary to
effectuate the Incremental Term Loan on the terms set forth above) on behalf of
the Lenders; provided that such amendment shall not modify this Agreement or any
other Loan Document in any manner materially adverse to any Lender without the
consent of such Lenders adversely affected thereby in accordance with Section
14.2 hereof.

         (f) Upon the execution, delivery, acceptance and recording of the
applicable Incremental Term Loan Agreement, from and after the applicable
Incremental Term Loan Effective Date, each Incremental Term Loan Lender shall

                                       39

<PAGE>

have an Incremental Term Loan Commitment as set forth in the Register and all
the rights and obligations of a Lender with such an Incremental Term Loan
Commitment hereunder. The applicable Incremental Term Loan Lenders shall make
the Incremental Term Loan to the Borrower on the applicable Incremental Term
Loan Effective Date in an amount equal to the Incremental Term Loan Commitment
of each Incremental Term Loan Lender with respect to such Incremental Term Loan
as agreed upon pursuant to subsection (b) above.

         (g) The Administrative Agent shall maintain a copy of each Incremental
Term Loan Agreement delivered to it in accordance with Section 14.10(c).

         (h) Subject to clause (i) below, the Applicable Margin and pricing
grid, if applicable, for any proposed Incremental Term Loan shall be determined
on the applicable Incremental Term Loan Effective Date. In addition, an
amortization schedule shall be prepared by the Administrative Agent in
accordance with the terms of Section 4.2(b) to provide for the repayment of the
applicable Incremental Term Loan.

             (i) The interest rate margin (which shall be deemed to include any
original issue discount ("OID") payable to all Incremental Term Loan Lenders
providing such Incremental Term Loan) with respect of any proposed Incremental
Term Loan may not exceed the Applicable Margin for the 2008-1 Incremental Term
Loan (which shall, for such purposes only, be deemed to include any OID payable
to all Incremental Term Loan Lenders providing such proposed Incremental Term
Loan) by more than 1/4 of 1% (it being understood that any such increase may
take the form of OID, with OID being equated to the interest rates in a manner
reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent based on an assumed four-year
life to maturity), and if any proposed Applicable Margin (which shall, for such
purposes only, be deemed to include any OID payable to all Incremental Term Loan
Lenders providing such proposed Incremental Term Loan) would exceed such maximum
amount, the Applicable Margin for the 2008-1 Incremental Term Loan shall be
automatically increased so that the interest rate margin in respect of such
proposed Incremental Term Loan (which shall be deemed to include any OID payable
to all Incremental Term Loan Lenders providing such Incremental Term Loan) is no
more than 1/4 of 1% higher than the Applicable Margin for the 2008-1 Incremental
Term.

         SECTION 4.2 Repayment of Incremental Term Loans.

         (a) Repayment of 2008-1 Incremental Term Loan. The Borrower shall repay
the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the 2008-1 Incremental Term Loan

<PAGE>

         (c) No Reborrowing. Amounts repaid pursuant to this Section 4.2 may not
be reborrowed and will constitute a permanent reduction of the applicable

         (a) Optional Prepayments. The Borrower shall have the right at any time

each Base Rate Loan and (ii) at least three (3) Business Days before each LIBOR
Rate Loan, specifying the date and amount of repayment and whether the repayment
is of LIBOR Rate Loans or Base Rate Loans or a combination thereof, and, if of a
combination thereof, the amount allocable to each. Each optional prepayment of
the Incremental Term Loan hereunder shall be in an aggregate principal amount of
at least $1,000,000 or any whole multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof and
shall be applied, on a pro rata basis, to the outstanding scheduled principal
installments of any Incremental Term Loan. Each repayment shall be accompanied
by any amount required to be paid pursuant to Section 5.9 hereof. A Notice of

below in amounts equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the aggregate Net Cash
Proceeds from any Equity Issuance by the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries
other than the exercise price on stock options or warrants; provided, that so
long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, no

the proceeds of which are used to finance a Permitted Acquisition. Such
prepayment shall be made within three (3) Business Days after the date of
receipt of the Net Cash Proceeds of any such transaction.

             (iii) Asset Dispositions. The Borrower shall prepay the Loans
and/or cash collateralize the L/C Obligations in the manner set forth in clause

Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries. Such prepayments shall be made within three
(3) Business Days after receipt of Net Cash Proceeds of any such transaction by
the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries; provided that, so long as no Default or
Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, no prepayments shall be

             (vi) Notice; Manner of Payment. Upon the occurrence of any event
triggering the prepayment requirement under clauses (i) through and including
(v) above, the Borrower shall promptly deliver a Notice of Prepayment to the
Administrative Agent and upon receipt of such notice, the Administrative Agent
shall promptly so notify the Lenders. Each prepayment of the Loans under this
Section shall be applied first, to reduce on a pro rata basis the remaining
scheduled amortization payments of the Incremental Term Loans and second, to the
extent of any excess, to repay the Revolving Credit Loans (provided that, solely
with respect to the portion of any such mandatory prepayment allocable to the
Revolving Credit Loans, no prepayments will be required if (a) no Default or
Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and (b) after giving pro forma
effect to such prepayment (together with the underlying transaction giving rise
thereto), the Borrower would be permitted under the terms of this Agreement to
immediately re-borrow the amount of such mandatory prepayment).

Amounts prepaid under the Incremental Term Loans pursuant to this Section may
not be reborrowed. Each prepayment shall be accompanied by any amount required
to be paid pursuant to Section 5.9.

                                   ARTICLE V

                             GENERAL LOAN PROVISIONS

         SECTION 5.1 Interest.

         (a) Interest Rate Options. Subject to the provisions of this Section,
at the election of the Borrower, (i) Revolving Credit Loans and the Incremental
Term Loans shall bear interest at (A) the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin
or (B) the LIBOR Rate plus the Applicable Margin and (ii) any Swingline Loan
shall bear interest at the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin. Any Incremental
Term Loan shall bear interest as set forth in Section 4.1(h). The Borrower shall
select the rate of interest and Interest Period, if any, applicable to any Loan
at the time a Notice of Borrowing is given or at the time a Notice of
Conversion/Continuation is given pursuant to Section 5.2. Any Loan or any
portion thereof as to which the Borrower has not duly specified an interest rate
as provided herein shall be deemed a Base Rate Loan.

         (b) Interest Periods. In connection with each LIBOR Rate Loan, the
Borrower, by giving notice at the times described in Section 2.3 or 5.2, as
applicable, shall elect an interest period (each, an "Interest Period") to be
applicable to such Loan, which Interest Period shall be a period of one (1), two
(2), three (3), or six (6) months; provided that:

             (i) the Interest Period shall commence on the date of advance of or
conversion to any LIBOR Rate Loan and, in the case of immediately successive
Interest Periods, each successive Interest Period shall commence on the date on
which the immediately preceding Interest Period expires;

             (ii) if any Interest Period would otherwise expire on a day that is
not a Business Day, such Interest Period shall expire on the next succeeding
Business Day; provided, that if any Interest Period with respect to a LIBOR Rate
Loan would otherwise expire on a day that is not a Business Day but is a day of
the month after which no further Business Day occurs in such month, such
Interest Period shall expire on the immediately preceding Business Day;

             (iii) any Interest Period with respect to a LIBOR Rate Loan that
begins on the last Business Day of a calendar month (or on a day for which there
is no numerically corresponding day in the calendar month at the end of such
Interest Period) shall end on the last Business Day of the relevant calendar
month at the end of such Interest Period;

             (iv) no Interest Period shall extend beyond the Revolving Credit
Maturity Date or Incremental Term Loan Maturity Date, as applicable, and
Interest Periods shall be selected by the Borrower so as to permit the Borrower
to make the quarterly principal installment payments pursuant to Section 4.2
without payment of any amounts pursuant to Section 5.9; and

             (v) there shall be no more than ten (10) Interest Periods in effect
at any time.

                                       44

<PAGE>

         (c) Default Rate. Subject to Section 12.3, (i) immediately upon the
occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default under Section
12.1(a), (b), (j) or (k), or (ii) at the election of the Required Lenders, upon
the occurrence and during the continuance of any other Event of Default, (A) the
Borrower shall no longer have the option to request LIBOR Rate Loans or,
Swingline Loans or Letters of Credit, (B) all outstanding LIBOR Rate Loans shall
bear interest at a rate per annum of two percent (2%) in excess of the rate then
applicable to LIBOR Rate Loans until the end of the applicable Interest Period
and thereafter at a rate equal to two percent (2%) in excess of the rate then
applicable to Base Rate Loans, and (C) all outstanding Base Rate Loans and other
Obligations arising hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall bear
interest at a rate per annum equal to two percent (2%) in excess of the rate
then applicable to Base Rate Loans or such other Obligations arising hereunder
or under any other Loan Document. Interest shall continue to accrue on the
Obligations after an Event of Default set forth in Section 12.1(j) or 12.1(k)
hereunder has occurred.

         (d) Interest Payment and Computation. Interest on each Base Rate Loan
shall be due and payable in arrears on the last Business Day of each calendar
quarter commencing September 30, 2008; and interest on each LIBOR Rate Loan
shall be due and payable on the last day of each Interest Period applicable
thereto, and if such Interest Period extends over three (3) months, at the end
of each three (3) month interval during such Interest Period. All computations
of interest for Base Rate Loans when the Base Rate is determined by the Prime
Rate shall be made on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may
be, and actual days elapsed. All other computations of fees and interest
provided hereunder shall be made on the basis of a 360-day year and actual days
elapsed (which results in more fees or interest, as applicable, being paid than
if computed on the basis of a 365-day year).

         (e) Maximum Rate. In no contingency or event whatsoever shall the
aggregate of all amounts deemed interest under this Agreement charged or
collected pursuant to the terms of this Agreement exceed the highest rate
permissible under any Applicable Law which a court of competent jurisdiction
shall, in a final determination, deem applicable hereto. In the event that such
a court determines that the Lenders have charged or received interest hereunder
in excess of the highest applicable rate, the rate in effect hereunder shall
automatically be reduced to the maximum rate permitted by Applicable Law and the
Lenders shall at the Administrative Agent's option (i) promptly refund to the
Borrower any interest received by the Lenders in excess of the maximum lawful
rate or (ii) apply such excess to the principal balance of the Obligations on a
pro rata basis. It is the intent hereof that the Borrower not pay or contract to
pay, and that neither the Administrative Agent nor any Lender receive or
contract to receive, directly or indirectly in any manner whatsoever, interest
in excess of that which may be paid by the Borrower under Applicable Law.

         SECTION 5.2 Notice and Manner of Conversion or Continuation of Loans.
Provided that no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is then
continuing, the Borrower shall have the option to (a) convert at any time
following the third Business Day after the Closing Date all or any portion of
any outstanding Base Rate Loans (other than Swingline Loans) in a principal
amount equal to $1,000,000 or any whole multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof
into one or more LIBOR Rate Loans and (b) upon the expiration of any Interest
Period, (i) convert all or any part of its outstanding LIBOR Rate Loans in a
principal amount equal to $1,000,000 or a whole multiple of $500,000 in excess
thereof into Base Rate Loans (other than Swingline Loans) or (ii) continue such

                                       45

<PAGE>

LIBOR Rate Loans as LIBOR Rate Loans. Whenever the Borrower desires to convert
or continue Loans as provided above, the Borrower shall give the Administrative
Agent irrevocable prior written notice in the form attached as EXHIBIT E (a
"Notice of Conversion/Continuation") not later than 12:00 p.m. three (3)
Business Days before the day on which a proposed conversion or continuation of
such Loan is to be effective specifying (A) the Loans to be converted or
continued, and, in the case of any LIBOR Rate Loan to be converted or continued,
the last day of the Interest Period therefor, (B) the effective date of such
conversion or continuation (which shall be a Business Day), (C) the principal
amount of such Loans to be converted or continued, and (D) the Interest Period
to be applicable to such converted or continued LIBOR Rate Loan. The
Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Lenders of such Notice of
Conversion/Continuation.

         SECTION 5.3 Fees.

         (a) Commitment Fee. Commencing on the Closing Date, the Borrower shall
pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Revolving Credit
Lenders, a non-refundable commitment fee at a rate per annum determined by
reference to the pricing grid set forth below (the "Commitment Fee Rate") on the
average daily unused portion of the Revolving Credit Commitment; provided, that
the amount of outstanding Swingline Loans shall not be considered usage of the
Revolving Credit Commitment for the purpose of calculating such commitment fee.
The commitment fee shall be payable in arrears on the last Business Day of each
calendar quarter during the term of this Agreement commencing September 30, 2008
and ending on the Revolving Credit Maturity Date. Such commitment fee shall be
distributed by the Administrative Agent to the Revolving Credit Lenders pro rata
in accordance with the Lenders' respective Revolving Credit Commitment
Percentages. The Commitment Fee Rate shall be based upon the table set forth
below and shall be determined and adjusted quarterly, and shall be effective on,
each Calculation Date; provided, however, that (i) the initial Commitment Fee
Rate shall be at Pricing Level I (as shown below) and shall remain at Pricing
Level I until the first Calculation Date occurring after the fiscal quarter
ending September 30, 2008 and thereafter the Pricing Level shall be determined
by reference to the Consolidated Total Leverage Ratio as of the last day of the
most recently ended fiscal quarter of the Borrower preceding the applicable
Calculation Date, and (ii) if the Borrower fails to provide the Officer's
Compliance Certificate as required by Section 8.2 for the most recently ended
fiscal quarter of the Borrower preceding the applicable Calculation Date, the
Commitment Fee Rate from such Calculation Date shall be based on Pricing Level I
(as shown below) until such time as an appropriate Officer's Compliance
Certificate is provided, at which time the Pricing Level shall be determined by
reference to the Consolidated Total Leverage Ratio as of the last day of the
most recently ended fiscal quarter of the Borrower preceding such Calculation
Date. The Commitment Fee Rate shall be effective from one Calculation Date until
the next Calculation Date.

         (b) Agents' and Other Fees. In order to compensate the Agents for
structuring and syndicating the Lenders for their obligations hereunder, the
Borrower agrees to pay to the Agents, for the accounts of the Agents, the
Lenders and their respective Affiliates, any fees set forth in the Fee Letter.

         SECTION 5.4 Manner of Payment. Each payment by the Borrower on account
of the principal of or interest on the Loans or of any fee, commission or other
amounts (including the Reimbursement Obligation) payable to the Lenders under
this Agreement shall be made not later than 1:00 p.m. on the date specified for
payment under this Agreement to the Administrative Agent at the Administrative
Agent's Office for the account of the Lenders (other than as set forth below)
pro rata in accordance with their respective Commitment Percentages, (except as
specified below), in Dollars, in immediately available funds and shall be made
without any set-off, counterclaim or deduction whatsoever. Any payment received
after such time but before 2:00 p.m. on such day shall be deemed a payment on
such date for the purposes of Section 12.1, but for all other purposes shall be
deemed to have been made on the next succeeding Business Day. Any payment
received after 2:00 p.m. shall be deemed to have been made on the next
succeeding Business Day for all purposes. Upon receipt by the Administrative
Agent of each such payment, the Administrative Agent shall distribute to each
Lender at its address for notices set forth herein its pro rata share of such
payment in accordance with such Lender's Commitment Percentage, (except as
specified below) and shall wire advice of the amount of such credit to each
Lender. Each payment to the Administrative Agent of the Issuing Lender's fees or
L/C Participants' commissions shall be made in like manner, but for the account
of the Issuing Lender or the L/C Participants, as the case may be. Each payment
to the Administrative Agent of Administrative Agent's fees or expenses shall be
made for the account of the Administrative Agent and any amount payable to any
Lender under Sections 5.9, 5.10, 5.11 or 14.3 shall be paid to the
Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Lender. Subject to
Section 5.1(b)(ii) if any payment under this Agreement shall be specified to be
made upon a day which is not a Business Day, it shall be made on the next
succeeding day which is a Business Day and such extension of time shall in such
case be included in computing any interest if payable along with such payment.

         SECTION 5.5 Evidence of Indebtedness.

         (a) Extensions of Credit. The Extensions of Credit made by each Lender
shall be evidenced by one or more accounts or records maintained by such Lender
and by the Administrative Agent in the ordinary course of business. The accounts
or records maintained by the Administrative Agent and each Lender shall be
conclusive absent manifest error of the amount of the Extensions of Credit made

                                       47

<PAGE>

by the Lenders to the Borrower and the interest and payments thereon. Any
failure to so record or any error in doing so shall not, however, limit or
otherwise affect the obligation of the Borrower hereunder to pay any amount
owing with respect to the Obligations. In the event of any conflict between the
accounts and records maintained by any Lender and the accounts and records of
the Administrative Agent in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of
the Administrative Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error. Upon
the request of any Lender made through the Administrative Agent, the Borrower
shall execute and deliver to such Lender (through the Administrative Agent) a
Revolving Credit Note, Incremental Term Note and/or Swingline Note, as
applicable, which shall evidence such Lender's Revolving Credit Loans,
Incremental Term Loan and/or Swingline Loans, as applicable, in addition to such
accounts or records. Each Lender may attach schedules to its Notes and endorse
thereon the date, amount and maturity of its Loans and payments with respect
thereto.

         (b) Participations. In addition to the accounts and records referred to
in subsection (a), each Lender and the Administrative Agent shall maintain in
accordance with its usual practice accounts or records evidencing the purchases
and sales by such Lender of participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline
Loans. In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained
by the Administrative Agent and the accounts and records of any Lender in
respect of such matters, the accounts and records of the Administrative Agent
shall control in the absence of manifest error.

         SECTION 5.6 Adjustments. If any Lender shall, by exercising any right
of setoff or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any
principal of or interest on any of its Loans or other obligations hereunder
resulting in such Lender's receiving payment of a proportion of the aggregate
amount of its Loans and accrued interest thereon or other such obligations
(other than pursuant to Sections 5.9, 5.10, 5.11 or 14.3 hereof) greater than
its pro rata share thereof as provided herein, then the Lender receiving such
greater proportion shall (a) notify the Administrative Agent of such fact, and
(b) purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Loans and such other
obligations of the other Lenders, or make such other adjustments as shall be
equitable, so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by the
Lenders ratably in accordance with the aggregate amount of principal of and
accrued interest on their respective Loans and other amounts owing them;
provided that

         (a) if any such participations are purchased and all or any portion of
the payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations shall be
rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery,
without interest, and

         (b) the provisions of this paragraph shall not be construed to apply to
(x) any payment made by the Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the
express terms of this Agreement or (y) any payment obtained by a Lender as
consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its
Loans or participations in Swingline Loans and Letters of Credit to any assignee
or participant.

Each Credit Party consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may
effectively do so under Applicable Law, that any Lender acquiring a
participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against each
Credit Party rights of setoff and counterclaim with respect to such

                                       48

<PAGE>

participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of each Credit
Party in the amount of such participation.

         SECTION 5.7 Obligations of Lenders.

         (a) Funding by Lenders; Presumption by Administrative Agent. Unless the
Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the
proposed date of any borrowing that such Lender will not make available to the
Administrative Agent such Lender's share of such borrowing, the Administrative
Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date in
accordance with Sections 2.3(b) and 4.1 and may, in reliance upon such
assumption, make available to the Borrower a corresponding amount. In such
event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable borrowing
available to the Administrative Agent, then the applicable Lender and the
Borrower severally agree to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand
such corresponding amount with interest thereon, for each day from and including
the date such amount is made available to the Borrower up to but excluding the
date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of a payment to
be made by such Lender, the greater of the daily average Federal Funds Rate and
a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking
industry rules on interbank compensation and (ii) in the case of a payment to be
made by the Borrower, the interest rate applicable to Base Rate Loans. If the
Borrower and such Lender shall pay such interest to the Administrative Agent for
the same or an overlapping period, the Administrative Agent shall promptly remit
to the Borrower the amount of such interest paid by the Borrower for such
period. If such Lender pays its share of the applicable borrowing to the
Administrative Agent, then the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender's
Loan included in such borrowing. Any payment by the Borrower shall be without
prejudice to any claim the Borrower may have against a Lender that shall have
failed to make such payment to the Administrative Agent.

         (b) Nature of Obligations of Lenders Regarding Extensions of Credit.
The obligations of the Lenders under this Agreement to make the Loans and issue
or participate in Letters of Credit are several and are not joint or joint and
several. The failure of any Lender to make available its Commitment Percentage
of any Loan requested by the Borrower shall not relieve it or any other Lender
of its obligation, if any, hereunder to make its Commitment Percentage of such
Loan available on the borrowing date, but no Lender shall be responsible for the
failure of any other Lender to make its Commitment Percentage of such Loan
available on the borrowing date.

         SECTION 5.8 Changed Circumstances.

         (a) Circumstances Affecting LIBOR Rate Availability. If with respect to
any Interest Period the Administrative Agent or any Lender (after consultation
with the Administrative Agent) shall determine that, by reason of circumstances
affecting the foreign exchange and interbank markets generally, deposits in
eurodollars, in the applicable amounts are not being quoted via the Reuters Page
LIBOR01 or offered to the Administrative Agent or such Lender for such Interest
Period, then the Administrative Agent shall forthwith give notice thereof to the
Borrower. Thereafter, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower that
such circumstances no longer exist, the obligation of the Lenders to make LIBOR
Rate Loans and the right of the Borrower to convert any Loan to or continue any
Loan as a LIBOR Rate Loan shall be suspended, and the Borrower shall repay in

                                       49

<PAGE>

full (or cause to be repaid in full) the then outstanding principal amount of
each such LIBOR Rate Loan together with accrued interest thereon, on the last
day of the then current Interest Period applicable to such LIBOR Rate Loan or
convert the then outstanding principal amount of each such LIBOR Rate Loan to a
Base Rate Loan as of the last day of such Interest Period.

         (b) Laws Affecting LIBOR Rate Availability. If, after the date hereof,
the introduction of, or any change in, any Applicable Law or any change in the
interpretation or administration thereof by any Governmental Authority, central
bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration
thereof, or compliance by any of the Lenders (or any of their respective Lending
Offices) with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law)
of any such Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency, shall
make it unlawful or impossible for any of the Lenders (or any of their
respective Lending Offices) to honor its obligations hereunder to make or
maintain any LIBOR Rate Loan, such Lender shall promptly give notice thereof to
the Administrative Agent and the Administrative Agent shall promptly give notice
to the Borrower and the other Lenders. Thereafter, until the Administrative
Agent notifies the Borrower that such circumstances no longer exist, (i) the
obligations of the Lenders to make LIBOR Rate Loans and the right of the
Borrower to convert any Loan or continue any Loan as a LIBOR Rate Loan shall be
suspended and thereafter the Borrower may select only Base Rate Loans hereunder,
and (ii) if any of the Lenders may not lawfully continue to maintain a LIBOR
Rate Loan to the end of the then current Interest Period applicable thereto as a
LIBOR Rate Loan, the applicable LIBOR Rate Loan shall immediately be converted
to a Base Rate Loan for the remainder of such Interest Period.

         SECTION 5.9 Indemnity. The Borrower hereby indemnifies each of the
Lenders against any loss or expense which may arise or be attributable to each
Lender's obtaining, liquidating or employing deposits or other funds acquired to
effect, fund or maintain any Loan (a) as a consequence of any failure by the
Borrower to make any payment when due of any amount due hereunder in connection
with a LIBOR Rate Loan, (b) due to any failure of the Borrower to borrow,
continue or convert on a date specified therefor in a Notice of Borrowing or
Notice of Conversion/Continuation or (c) due to any payment, prepayment or
conversion of any LIBOR Rate Loan on a date other than the last day of the
Interest Period therefor. The amount of such loss or expense shall be
determined, in the applicable Lender's sole discretion, based upon the
assumption that such Lender funded its Commitment Percentage of the LIBOR Rate
Loans in the London interbank market and using any reasonable attribution or
averaging methods which such Lender deems appropriate and practical. A
certificate of such Lender setting forth the basis for determining such amount
or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender shall be forwarded to the
Borrower through the Administrative Agent and shall be conclusively presumed to
be correct save for manifest error.

         SECTION 5.10 Increased Costs.

         (a) Increased Costs Generally. If any Change in Law shall:

             (i) impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit,
compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of,
deposits with or for the account of, or advances, loans or other credit extended

                                       50

<PAGE>

or participated in by, any Lender (except any reserve requirement reflected in
the LIBOR Rate) or the Issuing Lender;

             (ii) subject any Lender or the Issuing Lender to any tax of any
kind whatsoever with respect to this Agreement, any Letter of Credit, any
participation in a Letter of Credit or any LIBOR Rate Loan made by it, or change
the basis of taxation of payments to such Lender or the Issuing Lender in
respect thereof (except for Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes covered by Section
5.11 and the imposition of, or any change in the rate of any Excluded Tax
payable by such Lender or the Issuing Lender); or

             (iii) impose on any Lender or the Issuing Lender or the London
interbank market any other condition, cost or expense affecting this Agreement
or LIBOR Rate Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or participation
therein;

and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such
Lender of making, converting into or maintaining any LIBOR Rate Loan (or of
maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan), or to increase the cost to
such Lender or the Issuing Lender of participating in, issuing or maintaining
any Letter of Credit (or of maintaining its obligation to participate in or to
issue any Letter of Credit), or to reduce the amount of any sum received or
receivable by such Lender or the Issuing Lender hereunder (whether of principal,
interest or any other amount) then, upon written request of such Lender or the
Issuing Lender, the Borrower shall promptly pay to any such Lender or the
Issuing Lender, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will
compensate such Lender or the Issuing Lender, as the case may be, for such
additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.

         (b) Capital Requirements. If any Lender or the Issuing Lender
reasonably determines that any Change in Law affecting such Lender or the
Issuing Lender or any lending office of such Lender or such Lender's or the
Issuing Lender's holding company, if any, regarding capital requirements has the
effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender's or the Issuing Lender's
capital or on the capital of such Lender's or the Issuing Lender's holding
company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement, the Commitments of such
Lender or the Loans made by, or participations in Letters of Credit held by,
such Lender, or the Letters of Credit issued by the Issuing Lender, to a level
below that which such Lender or the Issuing Lender or such Lender's or the
Issuing Lender's holding company would have achieved but for such Change in Law
(taking into consideration such Lender's or the Issuing Lender's policies and
the policies of such Lender's or the Issuing Lender's holding company with
respect to capital adequacy), then from time to time upon written request of
such Lender or such Issuing Lender the Borrower shall promptly pay to such
Lender or the Issuing Lender, as the case may be, such additional amount or
amounts as will compensate such Lender or the Issuing Lender or such Lender's or
the Issuing Lender's holding company for any such reduction suffered.

         (c) Certificates for Reimbursement. A certificate of a Lender or the
Issuing Lender setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such
Lender or the Issuing Lender or its holding company, as the case may be, as
specified in paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section shall be delivered to the
Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower shall pay
such Lender or the Issuing Lender, as the case may be, the amount shown as due
on any such certificate within ten (10) days after receipt thereof.

                                       51

<PAGE>

         (d) Delay in Requests. Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or
the Issuing Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not
constitute a waiver of such Lender's or the Issuing Lender's right to demand
such compensation; provided that the Borrower shall not be required to
compensate a Lender or the Issuing Lender pursuant to this Section for any
increased costs incurred or reductions suffered more than six (6) months prior
to the date that such Lender or the Issuing Lender, as the case may be, provides
the certificate set forth in Section 5.10(c) hereof (except that, if the Change
in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then
the six-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period
of retroactive effect thereof).

         SECTION 5.11 Taxes.

         (a) Payments Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of
any Obligation of the Borrower hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall
be made free and clear of and without reduction or withholding for any
Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes; provided that if the Borrower shall be
required by Applicable Law to deduct any Indemnified Taxes (including any Other
Taxes) from such payments, then (i) the sum payable shall be increased as
necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions
applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) the Administrative
Agent, Lender or Issuing Lender, as the case may be, receives an amount equal to
the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the
Borrower shall make such deductions and (iii) the Borrower shall timely pay the
full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with
Applicable Law.

         (b) Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrower. Without limiting the
provisions of paragraph (a) above, the Borrower shall timely pay any Other Taxes
to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law.

         (c) Indemnification by the Borrower. The Borrower shall indemnify the
Administrative Agent, each Lender and the Issuing Lender, within ten (10) days
after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other
Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or
attributable to amounts payable under this Section) paid by the Administrative
Agent, such Lender or the Issuing Lender, as the case may be, and any penalties,
interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto,
whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally
imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to
the amount of such payment or liability shall be delivered to the Borrower by a
Lender or the Issuing Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), or by
the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender or the
Issuing Lender, and shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

         (d) Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of
Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes by the Borrower to a Governmental Authority,
the Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a
certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing
such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of
such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.

                                       52

<PAGE>

         (e) Status of Lenders. Any Foreign Lender that is entitled to an
exemption from or reduction of withholding tax under the law of the jurisdiction
in which the Borrower is resident for tax purposes, or any treaty to which such
jurisdiction is a party, with respect to payments hereunder or under any other
Loan Document shall deliver to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative
Agent), at the time or times prescribed by Applicable Law or reasonably
requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed
and executed documentation prescribed by Applicable Law as will permit such
payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In
addition, any Lender, if 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 will enable
the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender
is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Without
limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event that the Borrower is a
resident for tax purposes in the United States, any Foreign Lender shall deliver
to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall
be requested by the recipient) 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 request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, but only if such
Foreign Lender is legally entitled to do so), whichever of the following is
applicable:

             (i) duly completed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN
claiming eligibility for benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United
States is a party,

             (ii) duly completed copies of Internal Revenue Service 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 to the effect that such Foreign Lender is not (A) a "bank" within
the meaning of section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, (B) a "10 percent shareholder"
of the Borrower within the meaning of section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or (C) a
"controlled foreign corporation" described in section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code
and (y) duly completed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, or

             (iv) any other form prescribed by Applicable Law as a basis for
claiming exemption from or a reduction in United States Federal withholding tax
duly completed together with such supplementary documentation as may be
prescribed by Applicable Law to permit the Borrower to determine the withholding
or deduction required to be made.

         (f) Treatment of Certain Refunds. If the Administrative Agent, a Lender
or the Issuing Lender determines, in its reasonable discretion, that it has
received a refund of any Taxes or Other Taxes as to which it has been
indemnified by the Borrower or with respect to which the Borrower has paid
additional amounts pursuant to this Section, it shall pay to the Borrower an
amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made,
or additional amounts paid, by the Borrower under this Section with respect to
the Taxes or Other Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket
expenses of the Administrative Agent, such Lender or the Issuing Lender, as the
case may be, and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant
Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided that the Borrower,
upon the request of the Administrative Agent, such Lender or the Issuing Lender,
agrees to repay the amount paid over to the Borrower (plus any penalties,

                                       53

<PAGE>

interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to the
Administrative Agent, such Lender or the Issuing Lender in the event the
Administrative Agent, such Lender or the Issuing Lender is required to repay
such refund to such Governmental Authority. This paragraph shall not be
construed to require the Administrative Agent, any Lender or the Issuing Lender
to make available its tax returns (or any other information relating to its
taxes which it deems confidential) to the Borrower or any other Person.

         (g) Survival. Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement
of the Borrower hereunder, the agreements and obligations of the Borrower
contained in this Section shall survive the payment in full of the Obligations
and the termination of the Commitments.

         SECTION 5.12 Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders.

         (a) Designation of a Different Lending Office. If any Lender requests
compensation under Section 5.10, or requires the Borrower to pay any additional
amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender
pursuant to Section 5.11, then such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to
designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder
or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices,
branches or affiliates, if, in the judgment of such Lender, such designation or
assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section
5.10 or Section 5.11, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) would not
subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise
be disadvantageous to such Lender. The Borrower hereby agrees to pay all
reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such
designation or assignment to the extent solely related to any Extensions of
Credit made by such Lender to the Borrower.

         (b) Replacement of Lenders. If any Lender requests compensation under
Section 5.10, or if the Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any
Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to
Section 5.11, or if any Lender defaults in its obligation to fund Loans
hereunder, then the Borrower may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to
such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to assign and
delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions
contained in, and consents required by, Section 14.10), all of its interests,
rights and obligations under this Agreement and the related Loan Documents to an
assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another
Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided that

             (i) the Borrower shall have paid to the Administrative Agent the
assignment fee specified in Section 14.10,

             (ii) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to
the outstanding principal of its Loans and participations in Letters of Credit,
accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it
hereunder and under the other Loan Documents (including any amounts under
Section 5.9) 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),

                                       54

<PAGE>

             (iii) in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for
compensation under Section 5.10 or payments required to be made pursuant to
Section 5.11, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or
payments thereafter, and

             (iv) such assignment does not conflict with Applicable Law.

A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment or delegation if,
prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the
circumstances entitling the Borrower to require such assignment and delegation
cease to apply.

         SECTION 5.13 Security. The Obligations of the Borrower shall be secured
as provided in the Security Documents.

                 REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE BORROWER

         SECTION 7.1 Representations and Warranties. To induce the
Administrative Agent and Lenders to enter into this Agreement and to induce the
Lenders to make Extensions of Credit, the Borrower hereby represents and
warrants to the Administrative Agent and Lenders both before and after giving
effect to the transactions contemplated hereunder that:

         (a) Organization; Power; Qualification. Each of the Borrower and its
Subsidiaries is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the
laws of the jurisdiction of its incorporation or formation, has the corporate
power and authority to own its properties and to carry on its business as now
being conducted and is duly qualified and authorized to do business in each
jurisdiction in which the character of its properties or the nature of its
business requires such qualification and authorization except in jurisdictions
where the failure to be so qualified or in good standing could not reasonably be
expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. The jurisdictions in which the
Borrower and its Subsidiaries are organized and qualified to do business as of
the Closing Date are described on Schedule 7.1(a).

         (b) Ownership. Each Subsidiary of the Borrower as of the Closing Date
is listed on Schedule 7.1(b). As of the Closing Date, the capitalization of the
Subsidiaries of the Borrower consists of the number of shares, authorized,
issued and outstanding, of such classes and series, with or without par value,
described on Schedule 7.1(b). All outstanding shares have been duly authorized
and validly issued and are fully paid and nonassessable, with no personal
liability attaching to the ownership thereof, and not subject to any preemptive
or similar rights, except as described in Schedule 7.1(b). The shareholders of
each Subsidiary of the Borrower and the number of shares owned by each as of the
Closing Date are described on Schedule 7.1(b). As of the Closing Date, there are
no outstanding stock purchase warrants, subscriptions, options, securities,
instruments or other rights of any type or nature whatsoever, which are

                                       60

<PAGE>

convertible into, exchangeable for or otherwise provide for or permit the
issuance of Capital Stock of each Subsidiary of the Borrower, except as
described on Schedule 7.1(b).

         (c) Authorization of Agreement, Loan Documents and Borrowing. Each of
the Borrower and its Subsidiaries has the right, power and authority and has
taken all necessary corporate and other action to authorize the execution,
delivery and performance of this Agreement and each of the other Loan Documents
to which it is a party in accordance with their respective terms. This Agreement
and each of the other Loan Documents have been duly executed and delivered by
the duly authorized officers of the Borrower and each of its Subsidiaries party
thereto, and each such document constitutes the legal, valid and binding
obligation of the Borrower or its Subsidiary party thereto, enforceable in
accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by
bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar state or federal
debtor relief laws from time to time in effect which affect the enforcement of
creditors' rights in general and the availability of equitable remedies.

         (d) Compliance of Agreement, Loan Documents and Borrowing with Laws,
Etc. The execution, delivery and performance by the Borrower and its
Subsidiaries of the Loan Documents to which each such Person is a party, in
accordance with their respective terms, the Extensions of Credit hereunder and
the transactions contemplated hereby do not and will not, by the passage of
time, the giving of notice or otherwise, (i) require any Governmental Approval
or violate any Applicable Law relating to the Borrower or any of its
Subsidiaries where the failure to obtain such Governmental Approval could
reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, (ii) conflict with,
result in a breach of or constitute a default under the articles of
incorporation, bylaws or other organizational documents of the Borrower or any
of its Subsidiaries, (iii) conflict with, result in a breach of or constitute a
default under any indenture, agreement or other instrument to which such Person
is a party or by which any of its properties may be bound or any Governmental
Approval relating to such Person which could reasonably be expected to have a
Material Adverse Effect, (iv) result in or require the creation or imposition of
any Lien upon or with respect to any property now owned or hereafter acquired by
such Person other than Liens arising under the Loan Documents or (v) require any
consent of any other Person in connection with the execution, delivery,
performance, validity or enforceability of this Agreement other than consents
for which the failure to obtain could not reasonably be expected to have a
Material Adverse Effect.

         (e) Compliance with Law; Governmental Approvals. Each of the Borrower
and its Subsidiaries (i) has all material Governmental Approvals required by any
Applicable Law for it to conduct its business, each of which is in full force
and effect, is final and not subject to review on appeal and is not the subject
of any pending or, to the best of its knowledge, threatened attack by direct or
collateral proceeding, (ii) is in material compliance with each Governmental
Approval applicable to it and in material compliance with all other Applicable
Laws relating to it or any of its respective properties and (iii) has timely
filed all material reports, documents and other materials required to be filed
by it under all Applicable Laws with any Governmental Authority and has retained
all material records and documents required to be retained by it under
Applicable Law.

                                       61

<PAGE>

         (f) Tax Returns and Payments. Each of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries
has duly filed or caused to be filed all federal, state, material local and
other material tax returns required by Applicable Law to be filed, and has paid,
or made adequate provision for the payment of, all federal, state, material
local and other material taxes, assessments and governmental charges or levies
upon it and its property, income, profits and assets which are due and payable.
Such returns accurately reflect in all material respects all liability for taxes
of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries for the periods covered thereby. Other than
as set forth on Schedule 7.1(f) hereto, there is no ongoing audit or examination
or, to the knowledge of the Borrower, other investigation by any Governmental
Authority having appropriate jurisdiction of the tax liability of the Borrower
and its Subsidiaries. To the Borrower's knowledge, no Governmental Authority
having appropriate jurisdiction has asserted any Lien or other claim against the
Borrower or any Subsidiary thereof with respect to unpaid taxes which has not
been discharged or resolved other than Permitted Liens. The charges, accruals
and reserves on the books of the Borrower and any of its Subsidiaries in respect
of federal, state, local and other taxes for all Fiscal Years and portions
thereof since January 1, 1999 or the organization of any Subsidiary, if later,
are in the judgment of the Borrower adequate, and the Borrower does not
anticipate any additional taxes or assessments for any of such years.

         (g) Intellectual Property Matters. Each of the Borrower and its
Subsidiaries owns or possesses rights to use all material franchises, licenses,
copyrights, copyright applications, patents, patent rights or licenses, patent
applications, trademarks, trademark rights, service mark, service mark rights,
trade names, trade name rights, copyrights and other rights with respect to the
foregoing which are reasonably necessary to conduct its business. To the
Borrower's knowledge, no event has occurred which permits, or after notice or
lapse of time or both would permit, the revocation or termination of any such
rights, and, to the Borrower's knowledge, neither the Borrower nor any
Subsidiary thereof is liable to any Person for infringement under Applicable Law
with respect to any such rights as a result of its business operations.

         (h) Environmental Matters. Except as set forth on Schedule 7.1(h):

             (i) The properties currently owned, leased or operated by the
Borrower and its Subsidiaries do not contain, and to their knowledge have not
previously contained, and any real property formerly owned, leased or operated
by the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries did not contain during the Borrower's
or Subsidiaries' ownership, lease or operation thereof, any Hazardous Materials
in amounts or concentrations which (A) constitute or constituted a material
violation of applicable Environmental Laws or (B) could give rise to material
liability under applicable Environmental Laws;

             (ii) The Borrower, each of its Subsidiaries and their currently
owned, leased and operated properties and all their operations conducted in
connection therewith are in material compliance, and have been in material
compliance, with all applicable Environmental Laws, and there is no
contamination at, under or about such properties or such operations which could
materially interfere with the continued operation of such properties or impair
the fair saleable value thereof;

             (iii) Neither the Borrower nor any Subsidiary thereof has received
any written notice of violation, alleged violation, non-compliance, liability or
potential liability regarding environmental matters, Hazardous Materials, or
compliance with Environmental Laws that remain outstanding and unresolved, nor

                                       62

<PAGE>

does the Borrower or any Subsidiary thereof have knowledge that any such notice
will be received or is being threatened;

             (iv) Borrower and its Subsidiaries have not transported or disposed
of to or from the properties owned, leased or operated by the Borrower and its
Subsidiaries any Hazardous Materials in violation of, or in a manner or to a
location which is reasonably likely to give rise to liability under,
Environmental Laws, nor has the Borrower or its Subsidiaries generated, treated,
stored or disposed of Hazardous Material at, on or under any of such properties
in violation of, or in a manner that could give rise to liability under, any
applicable Environmental Laws;

             (v) No judicial proceedings or governmental or administrative
action is pending, or, to the knowledge of the Borrower, threatened, under any
Environmental Law to which the Borrower or any Subsidiary thereof is or is
reasonably likely to be named as a potentially responsible party with respect to
their properties or operations, nor are there any consent decrees or other
decrees, consent orders, administrative orders or other orders, or other
administrative or judicial requirements outstanding under any Environmental Law
with respect to Borrower, any Subsidiary or their properties or operations that
could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect; and

             (vi) There has been no release, or to the Borrower's knowledge,
threat of release, of Hazardous Materials at or from properties owned, leased or
operated by the Borrower or any Subsidiary during the Borrower's or its
Subsidiaries' ownership, lease or operation thereof or, to the Borrower's
knowledge, prior to the Borrower's or its Subsidiaries' ownership, lease or
operations thereof, in violation of or in amounts or in a manner that could give
rise to liability under Environmental Laws that could reasonably be expected to
have a Material Adverse Effect.

         (i) ERISA.

             (i) As of the Closing Date, neither the Borrower nor any ERISA
Affiliate maintains or contributes to, or has any obligation under, any Employee
Benefit Plans other than those identified on Schedule 7.1(i);

             (ii) The Borrower and each ERISA Affiliate is in material
compliance with all applicable provisions of ERISA and the regulations and
published interpretations thereunder with respect to all Employee Benefit Plans
except for any required amendments for which the remedial amendment period as
defined in Section 401(b) of the Code has not yet expired and except where a
failure to so comply could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse
Effect. Each Employee Benefit Plan that is intended to be qualified under
Section 401(a) of the Code has been determined by the Internal Revenue Service
to be so qualified, and each trust related to such plan has been determined to
be exempt under Section 501(a) of the Code except for such plans that have not
yet received determination letters but for which the remedial amendment period
for submitting a determination letter has not yet expired. No liability has been
incurred by the Borrower or any ERISA Affiliate which remains unsatisfied for
any taxes or penalties with respect to any Employee Benefit Plan or any
Multiemployer Plan except for a liability that could not reasonably be expected
to have a Material Adverse Effect;

                                       63

<PAGE>

             (iii) As of the Closing Date, no Pension Plan has been terminated,
nor has any accumulated funding deficiency (as defined in Section 412 of the
Code) been incurred (without regard to any waiver granted under Section 412 of
the Code), nor has any funding waiver from the Internal Revenue Service been
received or requested with respect to any Pension Plan, nor has the Borrower or
any ERISA Affiliate failed to make any contributions or to pay any amounts due
and owing as required by Section 412 of the Code, Section 302 of ERISA or the
terms of any Pension Plan prior to the due dates of such contributions under
Section 412 of the Code or Section 302 of ERISA, nor has there been any event
requiring any disclosure under Section 4041(c)(3)(C) or 4063(a) of ERISA with
respect to any Pension Plan;

             (iv) Except where the failure of any of the following
representations to be correct in all material respects could not reasonably be
expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, neither the Borrower nor any ERISA
Affiliate has: (A) engaged in a nonexempt prohibited transaction described in
Section 406 of the ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code, (B) incurred any liability
to the PBGC which remains outstanding other than the payment of premiums and
there are no premium payments which are due and unpaid, (C) failed to make a
required contribution or payment to a Multiemployer Plan, or (D) failed to make
a required installment or other required payment under Section 412 of the Code;

             (v) No Termination Event has occurred or is reasonably expected to
occur; and

             (vi) Except where the failure of any of the following
representations to be correct in all material respects could not reasonably be
expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, no proceeding, claim (other than a
benefits claim in the ordinary course of business), lawsuit and/or investigation
is existing or, to the best knowledge of the Borrower after due inquiry,
threatened concerning or involving any (A) employee welfare benefit plan (as
defined in Section 3(1) of ERISA) currently maintained or contributed to by the
Borrower or any ERISA Affiliate, (B) Pension Plan or (C) Multiemployer Plan.

         (j) Margin Stock. Neither the Borrower nor any Subsidiary thereof is
engaged principally or as one of its activities in the business of extending
credit for the purpose of "purchasing" or "carrying" any "margin stock" (as each
such term is defined or used, directly or indirectly, in Regulation U of the
Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System). No part of the proceeds of
any of the Loans or Letters of Credit will be used for purchasing or carrying
margin stock or for any purpose which violates, or which would be inconsistent
with, the provisions of Regulation T, U or X of such Board of Governors.

         (k) Government Regulation. Neither the Borrower nor any Subsidiary
thereof is an "investment company" or a company "controlled" by an "investment
company" (as each such term is defined or used in the Investment Company Act of
1940, as amended) and neither the Borrower nor any Subsidiary thereof is, or
after giving effect to any Extension of Credit will be, subject to regulation
under the Interstate Commerce Act, as amended, or any other Applicable Law which
limits its ability to incur or consummate the transactions contemplated hereby.

                                       64

<PAGE>

         (l) Employee Relations. Each of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries has a
stable work force in place and is not, as of the Closing Date, party to any

contemplated strikes, work stoppage or other collective labor disputes involving
its employees or those of its Subsidiaries.

         (m) Burdensome Provisions. Neither the Borrower nor any Subsidiary
thereof is a party to any agreement or instrument or subject to any corporate
restriction that has resulted or could reasonably be expected to result in a
Material Adverse Effect.

         (n) Financial Statements. The audited and unaudited financial
statements delivered pursuant to Section 6.2(e) are complete and correct and
fairly present in all material respects on a Consolidated basis the assets,
liabilities and financial position of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries as at
such dates, and the results of the operations and changes of financial position
for the periods then ended (other than customary year-end adjustments for
unaudited financial statements). All such financial statements, including the
related schedules and notes thereto, have been prepared in accordance with GAAP.
Such financial statements show all material indebtedness and other material
liabilities, direct or contingent, of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries as of
the date thereof, including material liabilities for taxes, material
commitments, and Indebtedness, in each case, to the extent required to be
disclosed under GAAP. The pro forma financial statements delivered pursuant to
Section 6.2(e) were prepared in good faith on the basis of the assumptions
stated therein, which assumptions are believed to be reasonable in light of then
existing conditions except that such financial statements and forecasts shall be
subject to normal year end closing and audit adjustments.

         (o) No Material Adverse Change. Since December 31,2007, there has been
no material adverse change in the properties, business, operations, or condition
(financial or otherwise) of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries and no event has
occurred or condition arisen that could reasonably be expected to have a
Material Adverse Effect; provided, that the Borrower has disclosed to the
Administrative Agent the lawsuits set forth on Schedule 7.1(u), and, so long as
there is no material adverse change in such lawsuits since March 31, 2008, such
lawsuits do not currently have a Material Adverse Effect.

         (p) Solvency. As of the Closing Date and after giving effect to each
Extension of Credit made hereunder, the Borrower and each of its Subsidiaries
will be Solvent.

         (q) Titles to Properties. Each of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries has
such title to the real property owned or leased by it as is necessary or
desirable to the conduct of its business and valid and legal title to all of its
material personal property and assets, including, but not limited to, those
reflected on the balance sheets of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries delivered
pursuant to Section 6.2(e), except those which have been disposed of by the
Borrower or its Subsidiaries subsequent to such date which dispositions have
been in the ordinary course of business or as otherwise expressly permitted
hereunder.

         (r) Insurance. The properties of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries are
insured with financially sound and reputable insurance companies or are
self-insured, in such amounts, with such deductibles and covering such risks as
are customarily carried by companies engaged in similar businesses and owning
similar properties in locations where the Borrower or the applicable Subsidiary
operates.

                                       65

<PAGE>

         (s) Liens. None of the properties and assets of the Borrower or any
Subsidiary thereof is subject to any Lien, except Permitted Liens. Neither the

security agreement authorizing any secured party thereunder to file any
financing statement, except to perfect those Permitted Liens.

         (t) Indebtedness and Guaranty Obligations. Schedule 11.1(c) is a
complete and correct listing of all Indebtedness and Guaranty Obligations of the
Borrower and its Subsidiaries as of the Closing Date in excess of $1,000,000. As
of the Closing Date, the Borrower and its Subsidiaries have performed and are in
compliance with all of the material terms of such Indebtedness and Guaranty
Obligations and all instruments and agreements relating thereto, and, as of the
Closing Date, no default or event of default, or event or condition which with
notice or lapse of time or both would constitute such a default or event of
default on the part of the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries exists with
respect to any such Indebtedness or Guaranty Obligation.

         (u) Litigation. Except for matters existing on the Closing Date and set
forth on Schedule 7.1(u), there are no actions, suits or proceedings pending
nor, to the knowledge of the Borrower, threatened against or in any other way
relating adversely to or affecting the Borrower or any Subsidiary thereof or any
of their respective properties in any court or before any arbitrator of any kind
or before or by any Governmental Authority that (i) has or could reasonably be
expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, or (ii) materially adversely affects
any transaction contemplated hereby.

         (v) Absence of Defaults. No event has occurred or is continuing which
constitutes a Default or an Event of Default, or which constitutes, or which
with the passage of time or giving of notice or both would constitute, a default
or event of default by the Borrower or any Subsidiary thereof under any Material
Contract or judgment, decree or order to which the Borrower or its Subsidiaries
is a party or by which the Borrower or its Subsidiaries or any of their
respective properties may be bound or which would require the Borrower or its
Subsidiaries to make any payment thereunder prior to the scheduled maturity date
therefore, except as could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse
Effect.

         (w) Senior Indebtedness Status. The Obligations of the Borrower and
each of its Subsidiaries under this Agreement and each of the other Loan
Documents ranks and shall continue to rank at least senior in priority of

of each such Person and is designated as "Senior Indebtedness" under all
instruments and documents, now or in the future, relating to all Subordinated
Indebtedness and all senior unsecured Indebtedness of such Person.

         (x) OFAC. None of the Borrower, any Subsidiary of the Borrower or any
OFAC Affiliate of the Borrower or any Subsidiary Guarantor: (i) is a Sanctioned
Person, (ii) has more than 10% of its assets in Sanctioned Entities, or (iii)
derives more than 10% of its operating income from investments in, or
transactions with Sanctioned Persons or Sanctioned Entities. The proceeds of any
Loan will not be used and have not been used to fund any operations in, finance
any investments or activities in, or make any payments to, a Sanctioned Person
or a Sanctioned Entity.

                                       66

<PAGE>

the Administrative Agent and the Lenders all agreements, instruments and
corporate or other restrictions to which the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries

No financial statement, material report, material certificate or other material
information, taken together as a whole, by or on behalf of any of the Borrower
or any of its Subsidiaries to the Administrative Agent or any Lender in
connection with the negotiation of any Loan Document or included therein or

such information was prepared in good faith based upon assumptions believed to

representations and warranties set forth in this Article VII or any of the Loan
Documents (including, but not limited to, any such representation or warranty
made in or in connection with any amendment thereto) shall constitute

and warranties made under this Agreement shall be made or deemed to be made at
and as of the Closing Date (except those that are expressly made as of a
specific date), shall survive the Closing Date and shall not be waived by the
execution and delivery of this Agreement, any investigation made by or on behalf
of the Lenders or any borrowing hereunder.

and declare the principal of and interest on the Loans and the Reimbursement
Obligations at the time outstanding, and all other amounts owed to the Lenders
and to the Administrative Agent under this Agreement or any of the other Loan
Documents (including, without limitation, all L/C Obligations, whether or not
the beneficiaries of the then outstanding Letters of Credit shall have presented
or shall be entitled to present the documents required thereunder) and all other
Obligations (other than Hedging Obligations), to be forthwith due and payable,
whereupon the same shall immediately become due and payable without presentment,
demand, protest or other notice of any kind, all of which are expressly waived
by each Credit Party, anything in this Agreement or the other Loan Documents to
the contrary notwithstanding, and terminate the Credit Facility and any right of
the Borrower to request borrowings or Letters of Credit thereunder; provided,
that upon the occurrence of an Event of Default specified in Section 12.1(j) or

acceleration pursuant to the preceding paragraph, the Borrower shall at such
time deposit in a cash collateral account opened by the Administrative Agent an
amount equal to the aggregate then undrawn and unexpired amount of such Letters
of Credit. Amounts held in such cash collateral account shall be applied by the
Administrative Agent to the payment of drafts drawn under such Letters of

                                       85

<PAGE>

Credit, and the unused portion thereof after all such Letters of Credit shall
have expired or been fully drawn upon, if any, shall be applied to repay the
other Obligations on a pro rata basis. After all such Letters of Credit shall
have expired or been fully drawn upon, the Reimbursement Obligation shall have
been satisfied and all other Obligations shall have been paid in full, the
balance, if any, in such cash collateral account shall be returned to the
Borrower.

         (c) Rights of Collection. Exercise on behalf of the Lenders all of its

enumeration of the rights and remedies of the Administrative Agent and the
Lenders set forth in this Agreement is not intended to be exhaustive and the
exercise by the Administrative Agent and the Lenders of any right or remedy
shall not preclude the exercise of any other rights or remedies, all of which
shall be cumulative, and shall be in addition to any other right or remedy given
hereunder or under the other Loan Documents or that may now or hereafter exist
at law or in equity or by suit or otherwise. No delay or failure to take action
on the part of the Administrative Agent or any Lender in exercising any right,
power or privilege shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or
partial exercise of any such right, power or privilege preclude any other or
further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege
or shall be construed to be a waiver of any Event of Default. No course of
dealing between the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders or their
respective agents or employees shall be effective to change, modify or discharge
any provision of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents or to
constitute a waiver of any Event of Default.

         SECTION 12.4 Crediting of Payments and Proceeds. In the event that the
Borrower shall fail to pay any of the Obligations when due and the Obligations

Obligations shall be applied:

         First, to payment of that portion of the Obligations constituting fees,
indemnities, expenses and other amounts, including attorney fees, payable to the
Administrative Agent in its capacity as such and the Issuing Lender in its
capacity as such (ratably among the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Lender
in proportion to the respective amounts described in this clause First payable
to them);

         Second, to payment of that portion of the Obligations constituting
fees, indemnities and other amounts (other than principal and interest) payable

to the respective amounts described in this clause Second payable to them);

         Third, to payment of that portion of the Obligations constituting
accrued and unpaid interest on the Loans and Reimbursement Obligations and any
Hedging Obligations (including any termination payments and any accrued and

respective amounts described in this clause Third payable to them);

                                       86

<PAGE>

         Fourth, to payment of that portion of the Obligations constituting
unpaid principal of the Loans and Reimbursement Obligations (ratably among the
Lenders in proportion to the respective amounts described in this clause Fourth
held by them);

         Fifth, to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing
Lender, to cash collateralize any L/C Obligations then outstanding; and

         Last, the balance, if any, after all of the Obligations have been
indefeasibly paid in full, to the Borrower or as otherwise required by Law.

         SECTION 12.5 Administrative Agent May File Proofs of Claim. In case of
the pendency of any receivership, insolvency, liquidation, bankruptcy,
reorganization, arrangement, adjustment, composition or other judicial
proceeding relative to any Credit Party, the Administrative Agent (irrespective
of whether the principal of any Loan or L/C Obligation shall then be due and
payable as herein expressed or by declaration or otherwise and irrespective of
whether the Administrative Agent shall have made any demand on the Borrower)
shall be entitled and empowered, by intervention in such proceeding or
otherwise:

         (a) to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of the principal and
interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Loans, L/C Obligations and all other
Obligations that are owing and unpaid and to file such other documents as may be
necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Lenders and the
Administrative Agent (including any claim for the reasonable compensation,
expenses, disbursements and advances of the Lenders and the Administrative Agent
and their respective agents and counsel and all other amounts due the Lenders
and the Administrative Agent under Sections 3.3, 5.3 and 14.3) allowed in such
judicial proceeding; and

deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same;

and any custodian, receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator, sequestrator or

each Lender to make such payments to the Administrative Agent and, in the event

                                  ARTICLE XIII

                            THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT

         SECTION 13.1 Appointment and Authority. Each of the Lenders and the
Issuing Lender hereby irrevocably appoints Wachovia to act on its behalf as the
Administrative Agent hereunder and under the other Loan Documents and authorizes
the Administrative Agent to take such actions on its behalf and to exercise such
powers as are delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms hereof or
thereof, together with such actions and powers as are reasonably incidental
thereto. The provisions of this Article are solely for the benefit of the
Administrative Agent, the Lenders and the Issuing Lender, and neither the
Borrower nor any Subsidiary thereof shall have rights as a third party
beneficiary of any of such provisions.

         SECTION 13.2 Rights 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 the term "Lender" or "Lenders" shall,
unless otherwise expressly indicated or unless the context otherwise requires,
include the Person serving as the Administrative Agent hereunder in its
individual capacity. Such Person and its Affiliates may accept deposits from,
lend money to, act as the financial advisor or in any other advisory capacity
for and generally engage in any kind of business with the Borrower or any
Subsidiary or other Affiliate thereof as if such Person were not the
Administrative Agent hereunder and without any duty to account therefor to the
Lenders.

         SECTION 13.3 Exculpatory Provisions. The Administrative Agent shall not
have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth herein and in
the other Loan Documents. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the
Administrative Agent:

         (a) shall not be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties,
regardless of whether a Default has occurred and is continuing;

         (b) shall not have any duty to take any discretionary action or
exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers
expressly contemplated hereby or by the other Loan Documents that the
Administrative Agent is required to exercise as directed in writing by the
Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be
expressly provided for herein or in the other Loan Documents), provided that the
Administrative Agent shall not be required to take any action that, in its
opinion or the opinion of its counsel, may expose the Administrative Agent to
liability or that is contrary to any Loan Document or Applicable Law; and

         (c) shall not, except as expressly set forth herein and in the other
Loan Documents, have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the
failure to disclose, any information relating to the Borrower or any of its
Affiliates that is communicated to or obtained by the Person serving as the
Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity.

         The Administrative Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or
not taken by it (i) with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders
(or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary, or as
the Administrative Agent shall believe in good faith shall be necessary, under

                                       88

<PAGE>

the circumstances as provided in Section 14.2 and Section 12.2) or (ii) in the
absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a
court of competent jurisdiction by final nonappealable judgment. The
Administrative Agent shall be deemed not to have knowledge of any Default unless
and until notice describing such Default is given to the Administrative Agent by
the Borrower, a Lender or the Issuing Lender.

         The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for or have any duty
to ascertain or inquire into (i) any statement, warranty or representation made
in or in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document, (ii) the
contents of any certificate, report or other document delivered hereunder or
thereunder or in connection herewith or therewith, (iii) the performance or
observance of any of the covenants, agreements or other terms or conditions set
forth herein or therein or the occurrence of any Default, (iv) the validity,
enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of this Agreement, any other Loan
Document or any other agreement, instrument or document or (v) the satisfaction
of any condition set forth in Article VI or elsewhere herein, other than to
confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to the
Administrative Agent.

         SECTION 13.4 Reliance by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative
Agent shall be entitled to rely upon, and shall not incur any liability for
relying upon, any notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument,
document or other writing (including any electronic message, Internet or
intranet website posting or other distribution) believed by it to be genuine and
to have been signed, sent or otherwise authenticated by the proper Person. The
Administrative Agent also may rely upon any statement made to it orally or by
telephone and believed by it to have been made by the proper Person, and shall
not incur any liability for relying thereon. In determining compliance with any
condition hereunder to the making of a Loan, or the issuance of a Letter of
Credit, that by its terms must be fulfilled to the satisfaction of a Lender or
the Issuing Lender, the Administrative Agent may presume that such condition is
satisfactory to such Lender or the Issuing Lender unless the Administrative
Agent shall have received notice to the contrary from such Lender or the Issuing
Lender prior to the making of such Loan or the issuance of such Letter of
Credit. The Administrative Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be
counsel for the Borrower), independent accountants and other experts selected by
it, and shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it in
accordance with the advice of any such counsel, accountants or experts.

         SECTION 13.5 Delegation of Duties. The Administrative Agent may perform
any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers hereunder or under
any other Loan Document by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by
the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent may
perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or
through their respective Related Parties. The exculpatory provisions of this
Article shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Related Parties of the
Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent, and shall apply to their respective
activities in connection with the syndication of the credit facilities provided
for herein as well as activities as Administrative Agent.

                                       89

         SECTION 13.6 Resignation of Administrative Agent.

         (a) The Administrative Agent may at any time give notice of its
resignation to the Lenders, the Issuing Lender and the Borrower. Upon receipt of
any such notice of resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right, in
consultation with the Borrower, to appoint a successor, which shall be a bank
with an office in the United States, or an Affiliate of any such bank with an
office in the United States. If no such successor shall have been so appointed
by the Required Lenders and no such successor shall have accepted such
appointment within 30 days after the retiring Administrative Agent gives notice
of its resignation, then the retiring Administrative Agent may on behalf of the
Lenders and the Issuing Lender, appoint a successor Administrative Agent meeting
the qualifications set forth above provided that if the Administrative Agent
shall notify the Borrower and the Lenders that no qualifying Person has accepted
such appointment, then such resignation shall nonetheless become effective in
accordance with such notice and (1) the retiring Administrative Agent shall be
discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder and under the other Loan
Documents (except that in the case of any collateral security held by the
Administrative Agent on behalf of the Lenders or the Issuing Lender under any of
the Loan Documents, the retiring Administrative Agent shall continue to hold
such collateral security until such time as a successor Administrative Agent is
appointed) and (2) all payments, communications and determinations provided to
be made by, to or through the Administrative Agent shall instead be made by or
to each Lender and the Issuing Lender directly, until such time as the Required
Lenders appoint a successor Administrative Agent as provided for above in this
paragraph. Upon the acceptance of a successor's appointment as Administrative
Agent hereunder, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all of
the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring (or retired)
Administrative Agent, and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged
from all of its duties and obligations hereunder or under the other Loan
Documents (if not already discharged therefrom as provided above in this
paragraph). The fees payable by the Borrower to a successor Administrative Agent
shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed
between the Borrower and such successor. After the retiring Administrative
Agent's resignation hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, the provisions
of this Article and Section 14.2 shall continue in effect for the benefit of
such retiring Administrative Agent, its sub-agents and their respective Related
Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them
while the retiring Administrative Agent was acting as Administrative Agent.

         (b) Any resignation by Wachovia as Administrative Agent pursuant to
this Section shall also constitute its resignation as Issuing Lender and
Swingline Lender. Upon the acceptance of a successor's appointment as
Administrative Agent hereunder, (a) such successor shall succeed to and become
vested with all of the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring
Issuing Lender and Swingline Lender, (b) the retiring Issuing Lender and
Swingline Lender shall be discharged from all of their respective duties and
obligations hereunder or under the other Loan Documents, and (c) the successor
Issuing Lender shall issue letters of credit in substitution for the Letters of
Credit, if any, outstanding at the time of such succession or make other
arrangement satisfactory to the retiring Issuing Lender to effectively assume
the obligations of the retiring Issuing Lender with respect to such Letters of
Credit.

         SECTION 13.7 Non-Reliance on Administrative Agent and Other Lenders.
Each Lender and the Issuing Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and
without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender or any of
their Related Parties and based on such documents and information as it has


                                       90

<PAGE>

deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this
Agreement. Each Lender and the Issuing Lender also acknowledges that it will,
independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other
Lender or any of their Related Parties and based on such documents and
information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its
own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement,
any other Loan Document or any related agreement or any document furnished
hereunder or thereunder.

         SECTION 13.8 No Other Duties, etc. Anything herein to the contrary
notwithstanding, none of the syndication agents, documentation agents,
co-agents, book manager, lead manager, arranger, lead arranger or co-arranger
listed on the cover page or signature pages hereof shall have any powers, duties
or responsibilities under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents,
except in its capacity, as applicable, as the Administrative Agent, a Lender or
the Issuing Lender hereunder.

         SECTION 13.9 Collateral and Guaranty Matters. The Lenders irrevocably
authorize the Administrative Agent, at its option and in its discretion,

         (a) to release any Lien on any Collateral granted to or held by the
Administrative Agent, for the ratable benefit of itself and the Lenders, under
any Loan Document (i) upon repayment of the outstanding principal of and all
accrued interest on the Loans, payment of all outstanding fees and expenses
hereunder, the termination of the Lenders' Commitments and the expiration or
termination of all Letters of Credit, (ii) that is sold or to be sold as part of
or in connection with any sale permitted hereunder or under any other Loan
Document, or (iii) subject to Section 14.2, if approved, authorized or ratified
in writing by the Required Lenders;

         (b) to subordinate any Lien on any Collateral granted to or held by the
Administrative Agent under any Loan Document to the holder of any Lien on such
Collateral that is permitted by Section 11.2(g); and

         (c) to release any Subsidiary Guarantor from its obligations under the
Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement if such Person ceases to be a Subsidiary as a
result of a transaction permitted hereunder.

         Upon request by the Administrative Agent at any time, the Required
Lenders will confirm in writing the Administrative Agent's authority to release
or subordinate its interest in particular types or items of property, or to
release any Subsidiary Guarantor from its obligations under the Subsidiary
Guaranty Agreement pursuant to this Section.

                                  ARTICLE XIV

Borrower to pay interest at the rate set forth in Section 5.1(c) during the
continuance of an Event of Default, or (ii) to amend any financial covenant
hereunder (or any defined term used therein) even if the effect of such

provided further, that (i) no amendment, waiver or consent shall, unless in
writing and signed by the Issuing Lender in addition to the Lenders required
above, affect the rights or duties of the Issuing Lender under this Agreement or
any Letter of Credit Application relating to any Letter of Credit issued or to
be issued by it; (ii) no amendment, waiver or consent shall, unless in writing
and signed by the Swingline Lender in addition to the Lenders required above,
affect the rights or duties of the Swingline Lender under this Agreement; (iii)
no amendment, waiver or consent shall, unless in writing and signed by the
Administrative Agent in addition to the Lenders required above, affect the
rights or duties of the Administrative Agent under this Agreement or any other
Loan Document; and (iv) the Fee Letter may be amended, or rights or privileges
thereunder waived, in a writing executed only by the parties thereto.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, no Defaulting Lender shall have
any right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent hereunder,
except that the Commitment of such Lender may not be increased or extended
without the consent of such Lender.

reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of one (1) counsel for the
Administrative Agent), in connection with the syndication of the credit
facilities provided for herein, the preparation, negotiation, execution,
delivery and administration of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents or
any amendments, modifications or waivers of the provisions hereof or thereof
(whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby shall be
consummated), (ii) all reasonable out of pocket expenses incurred by the Issuing
Lender in connection with the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of any
Letter of Credit or any demand for payment thereunder and (iii) all reasonable
out of pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent, any Lender or the
Issuing Lender (including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of any
counsel for the Administrative Agent, any Lender or the Issuing Lender), any
Lender or the Issuing Lender, in connection with the enforcement or protection
of its rights (A) in connection with this Agreement and the other Loan

Administrative Agent (and any sub-agent thereof), each Lender and the Issuing
Lender, and each Related Party of any of the foregoing Persons (each such Person

(including, without limitation, any Environmental Claims or civil penalties or
fines assessed by OFAC), damages, liabilities and related expenses (including
the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for any
Indemnitee), incurred by any Indemnitee or asserted against any Indemnitee by
any third party or by the Borrower or any other Credit Party arising out of, in
connection with, or as a result of (i) the execution or delivery of this
Agreement, any other Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated
hereby or thereby, the performance by the parties hereto of their respective
obligations hereunder or thereunder or the consummation of the transactions
contemplated hereby or thereby, (ii) any Loan or Letter of Credit or the use or
proposed use of the proceeds therefrom (including any refusal by the Issuing

presented in connection with such demand do not strictly comply with the terms
of such Letter of Credit), (iii) any actual or alleged presence or release of
Hazardous Materials on or from any property owned or operated by the Borrower or

litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing,
whether based on contract, tort or any other theory, whether brought by a third

any Indemnitee is a party thereto, or (v) any claim (including, without
limitation, any civil penalties or fines assessed by OFAC), investigation,
litigation or other proceeding (whether or not the Administrative Agent or any
Lender is a party thereto) and the prosecution and defense thereof, arising out
of or in any way connected with the Loans, this Agreement or any other Loan
Document or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, provided that such
indemnity shall not, as to any Indemnitee, be available to the extent that such

                                       95

<PAGE>

court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment to have
resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee or
(y) result from a claim brought by the Borrower or any other Credit Party
against an Indemnitee for breach in bad faith of such Indemnitee's obligations
hereunder or under any other Loan Document, if the Borrower or such Credit Party
has obtained a final and nonappealable judgment in its favor on such claim as
determined by a court of competent jurisdiction.

         (c) Reimbursement by Lenders. To the extent that the Borrower for any
reason fails to indefeasibly pay any amount required under clause (a) or (b) of
this Section to be paid by it to the Administrative Agent (or any sub-agent
thereof), the Issuing Lender or any Related Party of any of the foregoing, each
Lender severally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent (or any such
sub-agent), the Issuing Lender or such Related Party, as the case may be, such
Lender's pro rata share (determined as of the time that the applicable
unreimbursed expense or indemnity payment is sought) of such unpaid amount,
provided that the unreimbursed expense or indemnified loss, claim, damage,
liability or related expense, as the case may be, was incurred by or asserted
against the Administrative Agent (or any such sub-agent) or the Issuing Lender
in its capacity as such, or against any Related Party of any of the foregoing
acting for the Administrative Agent (or any such sub-agent) or Issuing Lender in
connection with such capacity. The obligations of the Lenders under this clause
(c) are subject to the provisions of Section 5.7.

         (d) Waiver of Consequential Damages, Etc. To the fullest extent
permitted by Applicable Law, the Borrower shall not assert, and hereby waives,
any claim against any Indemnitee, on any theory of liability, for special,
indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual
damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement,
any other Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the
transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, any Loan or Letter of Credit or the
use of the proceeds thereof. No Indemnitee referred to in clause (b) above shall
be liable for any damages arising from the use by unintended recipients of any
information or other materials distributed by it through telecommunications,
electronic or other information transmission systems in connection with this
Agreement or the other Loan Documents or the transactions contemplated hereby or
thereby; provided that such Indemnitee has utilized such usual and customary
security procedures with any such information or other materials as it would
utilize for its own similar information and materials.

         (e) Payments. All amounts due under this Section shall be payable
promptly after demand therefor.

         SECTION 14.4 Right of Set-off. If an Event of Default shall have
occurred and be continuing, each Lender, the Issuing Lender, the Swingline
Lender and each of their respective Affiliates is hereby authorized at any time
and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law, to set
off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand,
provisional or final, in whatever currency) at any time held and other
obligations (in whatever currency) at any time owing by such Lender, the Issuing
Lender, the Swingline Lender or any such Affiliate to or for the credit or the
account of the Borrower or any other Credit Party against any and all of the
Obligations of the Borrower or such Credit Party now or hereafter existing under

                                       96

<PAGE>

this Agreement or any other Loan Document to such Lender, the Issuing Lender or
the Swingline Lender, irrespective of whether or not such Lender, the Issuing
Lender or the Swingline Lender shall have made any demand under this Agreement
or any other Loan Document and although such Obligations of the Borrower or such
Credit Party may be contingent or unmatured or are owed to a branch or office of
such Lender, the Issuing Lender or the Swingline Lender different from the
branch or office holding such deposit or other obligation. The rights of each
Lender, the Issuing Lender, the Swingline Lender and their respective Affiliates
under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other
rights of setoff) that such Lender, the Issuing Lender, the Swingline Lender or
their respective Affiliates may have. Each Lender, the Issuing Lender and the
Swingline Lender agrees to notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent
promptly after any such setoff and application; provided that the failure to
give such notice shall not affect the validity of such setoff and application.

         SECTION 14.5 Governing Law.

         (a) Governing Law. This Agreement and the other Loan Documents, unless
expressly set forth therein, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance
with, the law of the State of New York, without reference to the conflicts or
choice of law principles thereof.

         (b) Submission to Jurisdiction. The Borrower and each other Credit
Party irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to
the nonexclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York sitting in
the Borough of Manhattan and of the United States District Court of the Borough
of Manhattan, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or
proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any other Loan
Document, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the
parties hereto irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect
of any such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in such New York
State court or, to the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law, in such
Federal court. Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any
such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other
jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law.
Nothing in this Agreement or in any other Loan Document shall affect any right
that the Administrative Agent, any Lender or the Issuing Lender may otherwise
have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or any other
Loan Document against the Borrower or any other Credit Party or its properties
in the courts of any jurisdiction.

         (c) Waiver of Venue. The Borrower and each other Credit Party
irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent permitted by
Applicable Law, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of
venue of any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement
or any other Loan Document in any court referred to in paragraph (b) of this
Section. Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest
extent permitted by Applicable Law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the
maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court.

         (d) Service of Process. Each party hereto irrevocably consents to
service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 14.1. Nothing
in this Agreement will affect the right of any party hereto to serve process in
any other manner permitted by Applicable Law.

                                       97

         SECTION 14.6 Waiver of Jury Trial.

         (a) EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT
PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY
LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS
AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR
THEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH PARTY HERETO
(A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PERSON HAS
REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PERSON WOULD NOT, IN THE
EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES
THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS
AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL
WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION.

         SECTION 14.7 Reversal of Payments. To the extent the Borrower makes a
payment or payments to the Administrative Agent for the ratable benefit of the
Lenders or the Administrative Agent receives any payment or proceeds of the
collateral which payments or proceeds or any part thereof are subsequently
invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside and/or
required to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party under any
bankruptcy law, state or federal law, common law or equitable cause, then, to
the extent of such payment or proceeds repaid, the Obligations or part thereof
intended to be satisfied shall be revived and continued in full force and effect
as if such payment or proceeds had not been received by the Administrative
Agent.

         SECTION 14.8 Injunctive Relief; Punitive Damages.

         (a) The Borrower recognizes that, in the event the Borrower fails to
perform, observe or discharge any of its obligations or liabilities under this
Agreement, any remedy of law may prove to be inadequate relief to the Lenders.
Therefore, the Borrower agrees that the Lenders, at the Lenders' option, shall
be entitled to temporary and permanent injunctive relief in any such case
without the necessity of proving actual damages.

         (b) The Administrative Agent, the Lenders and the Borrower (on behalf
of itself and the Credit Parties) hereby agree that no such Person shall have a
remedy of punitive or exemplary damages against any other party to a Loan
Document and each such Person hereby waives any right or claim to punitive or
exemplary damages that they may now have or may arise in the future in
connection with any Dispute, whether such Dispute is resolved through
arbitration or judicially.

         SECTION 14.9 Accounting Matters. If at any time any change in GAAP
would affect the computation of any financial ratio or requirement set forth in
any Loan Document, and either the Borrower or the Required Lenders shall so
request, the Administrative Agent, the Lenders and the Borrower shall negotiate
in good faith to amend such ratio or requirement to preserve the original intent
thereof in light of such change in GAAP (subject to the approval of the Required
Lenders); provided that, until so amended, (i) such ratio or requirement shall

                                       98

<PAGE>

continue to be computed in accordance with GAAP prior to such change therein and
(ii) the Borrower shall provide to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders
financial statements and other documents required under this Agreement or as
reasonably requested hereunder setting forth a reconciliation between
calculations of such ratio or requirement made before and after giving effect to
such change in GAAP.

         SECTION 14.10 Successors and Assigns; Participations.

         (a) Successors and Assigns Generally. The provisions of this Agreement
shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their
respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, except that neither the
Borrower nor any other Credit Party may assign or otherwise transfer any of its
rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the
Administrative Agent and each Lender and no Lender may assign or otherwise
transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder except (i) to an assignee in
accordance with the provisions of paragraph (b) of this Section, (ii) by way of
participation in accordance with the provisions of paragraph (d) of this Section
or (iii) by way of pledge or assignment of a security interest subject to the
restrictions of paragraph (f) of this Section (and any other attempted
assignment or transfer by any party hereto shall be null and void). Nothing in
this Agreement, expressed or implied, shall be construed to confer upon any
Person (other than the parties hereto, their respective successors and assigns
permitted hereby, Participants to the extent provided in paragraph (d) of this
Section and, to the extent expressly contemplated hereby, the Related Parties of
each of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders) any legal or equitable right,
remedy or claim under or by reason of this Agreement.

         (b) Assignments by Lenders. Any Lender may at any time assign to one or
more assignees all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this
Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment and the Loans at the
time owing to it); provided that any such assignment shall be subject to the
following conditions:

             (i) Minimum Amounts.

                 (A) in the case of an assignment of the entire remaining amount
             of the assigning Lender's Commitment and the Loans at the time
             owing to it or in the case of an assignment to a Lender, an
             Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund, no minimum amount need
             be assigned; and

                 (B) in any case not described in paragraph (b)(i)(A) of this
             Section, the aggregate amount of the Commitment (which for this
             purpose includes Loans outstanding thereunder) or, if the
             applicable Commitment is not then in effect, the principal
             outstanding balance of the Loans of the assigning Lender subject to
             each such assignment (determined as of the date the Assignment and
             Assumption with respect to such assignment is delivered to the
             Administrative Agent or, if "Trade Date" is specified in the
             Assignment and Assumption, as of the Trade Date) shall not be less
             than $5,000,000, in the case of any assignment in respect of the
             Revolving Credit Facility, or $1,000,000, in the case of any
             assignment in respect of the Incremental Term Loan Facility, unless
             each of the Administrative Agent and, so long as no Event of
             Default has occurred and is continuing, the Borrower otherwise

                                       99

<PAGE>

             consents (each such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or
             delayed); provided that the Borrower shall be deemed to have given
             its consent five (5) Business Days after the date written notice
             thereof has been delivered by the assigning Lender (through the
             Administrative Agent) unless such consent is expressly refused by
             the Borrower prior to such fifth (5th) Business Day;

             (ii) Proportionate Amounts. Each partial assignment shall be made
as an assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender's rights
and obligations under this Agreement with respect to the Loan or the Commitment
assigned;

             (iii) Required Consents. No consent shall be required for any
assignment except to the extent required by paragraph (b)(i)(B) of this Section
and, in addition:

                 (A) the consent of the Borrower (such consent not to be
             unreasonably withheld or delayed) shall be required unless (x) an
             Event of Default has occurred and is continuing at the time of such
             assignment, (y) such assignment is to a Lender, an Affiliate of a
             Lender or an Approved Fund or (z) such assignment is during the
             period commencing on the Closing Date and ending on the date that
             is sixty (60) days following the Closing Date (provided, however,
             in the case of this clause (z), the Administrative Agent shall
             nevertheless have consulted with the Borrower);

                 (B) the consent of the Administrative Agent (such consent not
             to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) shall be required for
             assignments in respect of (i) the Revolving Credit Facility or an
             unfunded commitment under the Incremental Term Loan Facility if
             such assignment is to a Person that is not a Lender with a
             Revolving Credit Commitment or Incremental Term Loan Commitment, as
             applicable, an Affiliate of such Lender or an Approved Fund with
             respect to such Lender or (ii) the Incremental Term Loan Facility
             to a Person who is not a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an
             Approved Fund; and

                 (C) the consents of the Issuing Lender and the Swingline Lender
             (such consents not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) shall be
             required for any assignment that increases the obligation of the
             assignee to participate in exposure under one or more Letters of
             Credit (whether or not then outstanding) or for any assignment in
             respect of the Revolving Credit Facility.

             (iv) Assignment and Assumption. The parties to each assignment
shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent an Assignment and
Assumption, together with a processing and recordation fee of $3,500 for each
assignment, and the assignee, if it is not a Lender, shall deliver to the
Administrative Agent an Administrative Questionnaire.

             (v) No Assignment to Borrower. No such assignment shall be made to
the Borrower or any of the Borrower's Affiliates or Subsidiaries.

                                      100

<PAGE>

             (vi) No Assignment to Natural Persons. No such assignment shall be
made to a natural person.

Subject to acceptance and recording thereof by the Administrative Agent pursuant
to paragraph (c) of this Section, from and after the effective date specified in
each Assignment and Assumption, the assignee thereunder shall be a party to this
Agreement and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and
Assumption, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement,
and the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest
assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, be released from its obligations
under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Assumption covering
all of the assigning Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement, such
Lender shall cease to be a party hereto) but shall continue to be entitled to
the benefits of Sections 5.8, 5.9, 5.10, 5.11 and 14.3 with respect to facts and
circumstances occurring prior to the effective date of such assignment. Any
assignment or transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement
that does not comply with this paragraph shall be treated for purposes of this
Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and
obligations in accordance with paragraph (d) of this Section.

         (c) Register. The Administrative Agent, acting solely for this purpose
as an agent of the Borrower, shall maintain at one of its offices in Charlotte,
North Carolina, a copy of each Assignment and Assumption and each Incremental
Term Loan Agreement delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the
names and addresses of the Lenders, and the Commitment of, and principal amounts
of the Loans owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to
time (the "Register"). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive, and the
Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders may 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, notwithstanding notice to the
contrary. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower and any
Lender (but only to the extent of entries in the Register that are applicable to
such Lender), at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior
notice.

         (d) Participations. Any Lender may at any time, without the consent of,
or notice to, the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, sell participations to
any Person (other than a natural person or the Borrower or any of the Borrower's
Affiliates or Subsidiaries) (each, a "Participant") in all or a portion of such
Lender's rights and/or obligations under this Agreement (including all or a
portion of its Commitment and/or the Loans owing to it); provided that (i) such
Lender's obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) such
Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the
performance of such obligations and (iii) the Borrower, the Administrative
Agent, Issuing Lender, Swingline Lender and the other Lenders shall continue to
deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender's
rights and obligations under this Agreement.

         Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which a Lender sells such a
participation shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right to
enforce this Agreement and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of
any provision of this Agreement; provided that such agreement or instrument may
provide that such Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree
to any amendment, modification or waiver or modification described in Section

                                      101

<PAGE>

14.2 that directly affects such Participant and could not be effected by a vote
of the Required Lenders. Subject to paragraph (e) of this Section, the Borrower
agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 5.8,
5.9, 5.10 and 5.11 to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired
its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section. To the
extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits
of Section 14.4 as though it were a Lender, provided such Participant agrees to
be subject to Section 5.6 as though it were a Lender.

         (e) Limitations upon Participant Rights. A Participant shall not be
entitled to receive any greater payment under Sections 5.10 and 5.11 than the
applicable Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the
participation sold to such Participant, unless the sale of the participation to
such Participant is made with the Borrower's prior written consent. A
Participant that would be a Foreign Lender if it were a Lender shall not be
entitled to the benefits of Section 5.11 unless the Borrower is notified of the
participation sold to such Participant and such Participant agrees, for the
benefit of the Borrower, to comply with Section 5.11(e) as though it were a
Lender.

         (f) Certain Pledges. Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a
security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to
secure obligations of such Lender, including without limitation any pledge or
assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank; provided that no
such pledge or assignment shall release such Lender from any of its obligations
hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party
hereto.

         SECTION 14.11 Confidentiality. Each of the Administrative Agent and the
Lenders agrees to maintain the confidentiality of the Information (as defined
below), except that Information may be disclosed (a) to its and its Affiliates'
directors, officers, employees and agents, including accountants, legal counsel
and other advisors (it being understood that the Persons to whom such disclosure
is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Information and
instructed to keep such Information confidential), (b) to the extent requested
by, or required to be disclosed to, any rating agency, or regulatory or similar
authority (including any self-regulatory authority, such as the National
Association of Insurance Commissioners), (c) to the extent required by
Applicable Laws or regulations or by any subpoena or similar legal process, (d)
to any other party hereto, (e) in connection with the exercise of any remedies
under this Agreement or under any other Loan Document (or any Hedging Agreement
with a Lender or the Administrative Agent) or any action or proceeding relating
to this Agreement or any other Loan Document (or any Hedging Agreement with a
Lender or the Administrative Agent) or the enforcement of rights hereunder or
thereunder, (f) subject to an agreement containing provisions substantially the
same as those of this Section, to (i) any purchasing Lender, proposed purchasing
Lender, Participant or proposed Participant, or (ii) any actual or prospective
counterparty (or its advisors) to any swap or derivative transaction relating to
the Borrower and its obligations, (iii) to an investor or prospective investor
in an Approved Fund that also agrees that Information shall be used solely for
the purpose of evaluating an investment in such Approved Fund, (iv) to a
trustee, collateral manager, servicer, backup servicer, noteholder or secured
party in an Approved Fund in connection with the administration, servicing and
reporting on the assets serving as collateral for an Approved Fund, or (v) to a
nationally recognized rating agency that requires access to information

                                      102

<PAGE>

regarding the Borrower and its Subsidiaries, the Loans and Loan Documents in
connection with ratings issued with respect to an Approved Fund, (g) with the
consent of the Borrower, (h) to Gold Sheets and other similar bank trade
publications, such information to consist of deal terms and other information
customarily found in such publications; provided, however, that the Borrower
shall receive prior written notice before the first disclosure by the
Administrative Agent of such information, (i) to the extent such Information (x)
becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section or
(y) becomes available to the Administrative Agent or any Lender on a
nonconfidential basis from a source other than the Borrower which is not subject
to an existing confidentiality agreement the existence of which the
Administrative Agent or such Lender have been notified prior to the time such
information has become available thereto or (j) to governmental regulatory
authorities in connection with any regulatory examination of the Administrative
Agent or any Lender or in accordance with the Administrative Agent's or any
Lender's regulatory compliance policy if the Administrative Agent or such Lender
deems necessary for the mitigation of claims by those authorities against the
Administrative Agent or such Lender or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates.
For purposes of this Section, "Information" means all information received from
any Credit Party relating to any Credit Party or any of their respective
businesses, other than any such information that is available to the
Administrative Agent or any Lender on a nonconfidential basis prior to
disclosure by any Credit Party; provided that, in the case of information
received from a Credit Party after the date hereof, such information is clearly
identified at the time of delivery as confidential. Any Person required to
maintain the confidentiality of Information as provided in this Section shall be
considered to have complied with its obligation to do so if such Person has
exercised the same degree of care to maintain the confidentiality of such
Information as such Person would accord to its own confidential information.

         SECTION 14.12 Performance of Duties. Each of the Credit Party's
obligations under this Agreement and each of the other Loan Documents shall be
performed by such Credit Party at its sole cost and expense.

         SECTION 14.13 All Powers Coupled with Interest. All powers of attorney
and other authorizations granted to the Lenders, the Administrative Agent and
any Persons designated by the Administrative Agent or any Lender pursuant to any
provisions of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents shall be deemed
coupled with an interest and shall be irrevocable so long as any of the
Obligations remain unpaid or unsatisfied, any of the Commitments remain in
effect or the Credit Facility has not been terminated.

         SECTION 14.14 Survival of Indemnities. Notwithstanding any termination
of this Agreement, the indemnities to which the Administrative Agent and the
Lenders are entitled under the provisions of this Article XIV and any other
provision of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall continue in full
force and effect and shall protect the Administrative Agent and the Lenders
against events arising after such termination as well as before.

         SECTION 14.15 Titles and Captions. Titles and captions of Articles,
Sections and subsections in, and the table of contents of, this Agreement are
for convenience only, and neither limit nor amplify the provisions of this
Agreement.

<PAGE>

         SECTION 14.16 Severability of Provisions. Any provision of this
Agreement or any other Loan Document which is prohibited or unenforceable in any
jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective only to the extent
of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remainder of
such provision or the remaining provisions hereof or thereof or affecting the
validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction.

         SECTION 14.17 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any
number of counterparts and by different parties hereto in separate counterparts,
each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and shall be
binding upon all parties, their successors and assigns, and all of which taken
together shall constitute one and the same agreement.

         SECTION 14.18 Integration. This Agreement, together with the other Loan
Documents, comprises the complete and integrated agreement of the parties on the
subject matter hereof and thereof and supersedes all prior agreements, written
or oral, on such subject matter. In the event of any conflict between the
provisions of this Agreement and those of any other Loan Document, the
provisions of this Agreement shall control; provided that the inclusion of
supplemental rights or remedies in favor of the Administrative Agent or the
Lenders in any other Loan Document shall not be deemed a conflict with this
Agreement. Each Loan Document was drafted with the joint participation of the
respective parties thereto and shall be construed neither against nor in favor
of any party, but rather in accordance with the fair meaning thereof.

         SECTION 14.19 Electronic Execution of Assignments. The words
"execution," "signed," "signature," and words of like import in any Assignment
and Assumption shall be deemed to include electronic signatures or the keeping
of records in electronic form, each of which shall be of the same legal effect,
validity or enforceability as a manually executed signature or the use of a
paper-based recordkeeping system, as the case may be, to the extent and as
provided for in any applicable law, including the Federal Electronic Signatures
in Global and National Commerce Act, the New York State Electronic Signatures
and Records Act, or any other similar state laws based on the Uniform Electronic
Transactions Act.

         SECTION 14.20 Term of Agreement. This Agreement shall remain in effect
from the Closing Date through and including the date upon which all Obligations
arising hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall have been indefeasibly
and irrevocably paid and satisfied in full and all Commitments have been
terminated. No termination of this Agreement shall affect the rights and
obligations of the parties hereto arising prior to such termination or in
respect of any provision of this Agreement which survives such termination.

         SECTION 14.21 Advice of Counsel, No Strict Construction. Each of the
parties represents to each other party hereto that it has discussed this
Agreement with its counsel. The parties hereto have participated jointly in the
negotiation and drafting of this Agreement. In the event an ambiguity or
