AGREEMENT TO PROVIDE INCREMENTAL TERM A-3 LOAN COMMITMENTS

SECTION 4.1 Agreement to Make Incremental Term A-3 Loans. Each Incremental Term A-3 Lender hereby agrees, severally and not jointly, to provide its respective Incremental Term A-3 Loan Commitment as set forth on Schedule A annexed hereto on the terms set forth in this Third Amendment, and its Incremental Term A-3 Loan Commitment shall be binding as of the Effective Date (as defined below). Each Incremental Term A-3 Lender hereby agrees, severally and not jointly, to make an Incremental Term Loan to the Borrower having the same terms as the Term A-3 Facility Loans on the Effective Date in the amount of its Incremental Term A-3 Loan Commitment.

SECTION 4.2 New Loans and Commitments. The Incremental Term A-3 Loan Commitment of each Incremental Term A-3 Lender is in addition to such Incremental Term A-3 Lender’s existing Loans and Commitments under the Credit Agreement, if any, which shall continue and, immediately after giving effect to the amendments contemplated hereby, will be subject in all respects to the terms of the Credit Agreement (and, in each case, the other Credit Documents).

SECTION 4.3 Applicable Margin. The Applicable Margin for any Loans made pursuant to the Incremental Term A-3 Loan Commitments (any such loans, the “Incremental Term A-3 Loans”) shall be the same as the Applicable Margin with respect to the Term A-3 Facility Loans after giving effect to this Third Amendment.

SECTION 4.4 Maturity Date. The maturity date for any Loans made pursuant to the Incremental Term A-3 Loan Commitments shall be the Term A Facility Maturity Date.

SECTION 4.7 Agreements of Incremental Term A-3 Lenders. Each Incremental Term A-3 Lender (a) represents and warrants that it is legally authorized to enter into this Third Amendment; (b) confirms that it has received a copy of the Credit Agreement, this Third Amendment and the other Credit Documents, together with copies of the financial statements referred to therein and such other documents and information as it has deemed appropriate to make its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Third Amendment; (c) agrees that it will, independently and without reliance upon the

Administrative Agent or any other Lender or Agent and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking action under the Credit Agreement, the other Credit Documents or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto or thereto; (d) appoints and authorizes each applicable Agent to take such action as agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers and discretion under the Credit Agreement, the other Credit Documents or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto or thereto as are delegated to each such Agent, as applicable, by the terms thereof, together with such powers as are incidental thereto; (e) hereby affirms the acknowledgements and representations of such Incremental Term A-3 Lender as a Lender contained in Section 12.07 of the Credit Agreement; and (f) agrees that it will be bound by the provisions of the Credit Agreement and will perform in accordance with the terms of the Credit Agreement all the obligations which by the terms of the Credit Agreement are required to be performed by it as a Lender, including its obligations pursuant to Section 13.05 of the Credit Agreement. Each Incremental Term A-3 Lender acknowledges and agrees that upon its execution of this Third Amendment that such Incremental Term A-3 Lender shall on and as of the Effective Date become a “Term A-3 Facility Lender” under, and for all purposes of, the Credit Agreement and the other Credit Documents, shall be subject to and bound by the terms thereof, shall perform all the obligations of and shall have all rights of a Lender thereunder, and shall make available such amount to fund its ratable share of outstanding Incremental Term A-3 Loans on the Effective Date as the Third Amendment Refinancing Arranger may instruct. Each Incremental Term A-3 Lender has delivered herewith to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent such forms, certificates or other evidence with respect to United States federal income tax withholding matters as such Incremental Term Lender may be required to deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 5.06 of the Credit Agreement.

SECTION 4.8 Excess Cash Flow. Each Incremental Term A-3 Lender party hereto, on behalf of itself and its successors and assigns, hereby agrees and elects to decline all prepayments of the Incremental Term A-3 Loans to be made pursuant to Section 2.10(a)(iv) of the Credit Agreement from the date of this Third Amendment through and including the third anniversary of the date of this Third Amendment.
