NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the agreements contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:
AGREEMENT

1.    Amendments to Credit Agreement.
(a)    The definition of “Delayed Draw Availability Period” in Section 1.01 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended to read as follows:
Delayed Draw Availability Period” means, with respect to the Delayed Draw Commitments, the period from and including the Closing Date to the earliest of (a) January 3, 2019, (b) the Maturity Date, (c) the date of termination of the Delayed Draw Commitments pursuant to Section 2.06 and (d) the date of termination of the commitment of each Lender to make Loans pursuant to Section 9.02.

(b)    The following new definitions are hereby added to Section 1.01 of the Credit Agreement in the appropriate alphabetical order to read as follows:

Beneficial Ownership Certification” means a certification regarding beneficial ownership required by the Beneficial Ownership Regulation, which certification shall be substantially similar in form and substance to the form of Certification Regarding Beneficial Owners of Legal Entity Customers published jointly, in May 2018, by the Loan Syndications and Trading Association and Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association.
Beneficial Ownership Regulation” means 31 C.F.R. § 1010.230.

First Amendment Effective Date” means June 5, 2018.

LIBOR Screen Rate” means the LIBOR quote on the applicable screen page the Administrative Agent designates to determine LIBOR (or such other commercially available source providing such quotations as may be designated by the Administrative Agent from time to time).
LIBOR Successor Rate Conforming Changes” means, with respect to any proposed LIBOR Successor Rate, any conforming changes to the definition of Base Rate, Interest Period, timing and frequency of determining rates and making payments of interest and other administrative matters as may be appropriate, in the discretion of the Administrative Agent, to reflect the adoption of such LIBOR Successor Rate and to permit the administration thereof by the Administrative Agent in a manner substantially consistent with market practice (or, if the Administrative Agent determines that adoption of any portion of such market practice is not administratively feasible or that no market practice for the administration of such LIBOR Successor Rate exists, in such other manner of administration as the Administrative Agent determines in consultation with the Borrower).

1





(c)    Section 2.06(b) of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended to read as follows:

(b)    Upon each Borrowing of the Delayed Draw Term Loan, the Aggregate Delayed Draw Commitments will be reduced by the amount of such Borrowing. The unfunded Aggregate Delayed Draw Commitments shall automatically terminate on January 3, 2019.

(d)    Section 2.07(c) of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended to read as follows:
(c)    Delayed Draw Term Loan. The Borrower shall repay the outstanding principal amount of the Delayed Draw Term Loan in quarterly installments on the last Business Day of each March, June, September and December (commencing with the first such date occurring after the last day of the Delayed Draw Availability Period in an amount equal to thereafter, 1.25% of the outstanding principal amount of the Delayed Draw Term Loan on the last day of the Delayed Draw Availability Period, with the remaining outstanding principal balance due and payable on the Maturity Date (as such installments may hereafter be adjusted as a result of prepayments made pursuant to Section 2.05), unless accelerated sooner pursuant to Section 9.02.
(e)    A new Section 3.08 is hereby added to the Credit Agreement to read as follows:
3.08    Successor LIBOR.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Loan Documents (including Section 11.01 hereof), if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error), or the Borrower or Required Lenders notify the Administrative Agent (with, in the case of the Required Lenders, a copy to Borrower) that the Borrower or Required Lenders (as applicable) have determined, that:
(i)    adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining LIBOR for any requested Interest Period because the LIBOR Screen Rate is not available or published on a current basis and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary; or
(ii)     the administrator of the LIBOR Screen Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which LIBOR or the LIBOR Screen Rate shall no longer be made available, or used for determining the interest rate of loans (such specific date, the “Scheduled Unavailability Date”), or
(iii)    syndicated loans currently being executed, or that include language similar to that contained in this Section, are being executed or amended (as applicable) to incorporate or adopt a new benchmark interest rate to replace LIBOR,
then, reasonably promptly after such determination by the Administrative Agent or receipt by the Administrative Agent of such notice, as applicable, the Administrative Agent and the Borrower may amend this Agreement to replace LIBOR with an alternate benchmark rate (including any mathematical or other adjustments to the benchmark (if any) incorporated therein), giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar Dollar denominated syndicated credit facilities for such alternative benchmarks (any such proposed rate, a “LIBOR Successor Rate”), together with any proposed LIBOR Successor Rate Conforming Changes and any such amendment shall become effective at 5:00 p.m. (New York time) on the fifth Business Day after the Administrative Agent shall have posted such proposed amendment to all Lenders and the Borrower unless, prior to such time, Lenders comprising the Required Lenders have delivered to the Administrative Agent written notice that such Required Lenders do not accept such amendment.
If no LIBOR Successor Rate has been determined and the circumstances under clause (i) above exist or the Scheduled Unavailability Date has occurred (as applicable), the Administrative Agent will promptly so notify the Borrower and each Lender. Thereafter, (x) the obligation of the Lenders to make or maintain Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be suspended, (to the extent of the affected Eurodollar Rate Loans or Interest Periods), and (y) the Eurodollar Rate component shall no longer be utilized in determining the Base Rate. Upon receipt of such notice, the Borrower may revoke any pending request for a Borrowing of, conversion

2




to or continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans (to the extent of the affected Eurodollar Rate Loans or Interest Periods) or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for a Borrowing of Base Rate Loans (subject to the foregoing clause (y)) in the amount specified therein.
Notwithstanding anything else herein, any definition of LIBOR Successor Rate shall provide that in no event shall such LIBOR Successor Rate be less than zero for purposes of this Agreement.
(f)    Section 6.15 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended by adding the following text at the end thereof:

As of the First Amendment Effective Date, the information included in the Beneficial Ownership Certification is true and correct in all respects.

(g)    Section 7.02 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended by removing the word “and” at the end of subsection (f), replacing the “.” at the end of subsection (g) with the words “; and” and adding the following subsection (h):

(h)    promptly following any request therefor, information and documentation reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent or any Lender for purposes of compliance with applicable “know your customer” requirements under the PATRIOT Act, the Beneficial Ownership Regulation or other applicable anti-money laundering laws.

(h)    The last paragraph of Section 11.01 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended to read as follows:

Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary (x) the Administrative Agent and the Borrower may amend, modify or supplement this Agreement or any other Loan Document to cure or correct administrative errors or omissions, any ambiguity, omission, defect or inconsistency or to effect administrative changes, and such amendment shall become effective without any further consent of any other party to such Loan Document so long as (i) such amendment, modification or supplement does not adversely affect the rights of any Lender or other holder of Obligations in any material respect and (ii) the Lenders shall have received at least five Business Days’ prior written notice thereof and the Administrative Agent shall not have received, within five Business Days of the date of such notice to the Lenders, a written notice from the Required Lenders stating that the Required Lenders object to such amendment and (y) the Administrative Agent and the Borrower may make amendments contemplated by Section 3.08.

2.    Effectiveness; Conditions Precedent. This Agreement shall be effective upon:

(a)    Agreement. Receipt by the Administrative Agent of executed counterparts of this Agreement properly executed by each Loan Party and each Lender.
