WHEREAS, the Borrower has requested that the Agent and Lenders (a) extend the date by which it must deliver to the Agent the Required Financial Information (as defined in the Fifth Amendment and Waiver) from August 15, 2017 to February 15, 2018 and (b) amend the Credit Agreement as set forth herein.

 

WHEREAS, the Agent and the Lenders have agreed to the requested extension and amendments on the terms and conditions set forth herein.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants hereinafter contained, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:

 

1.                                      Defined Terms.  Capitalized terms defined in the Credit Agreement and used herein without other definition shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Credit Agreement.

 

2.                                      Estoppel, Acknowledgement and Reaffirmation.  Each of the Loan Parties acknowledges and confirms that as of June 15, 2017: (a) the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Term A Loans is $174,375,000.00 and (b) the Total Revolving Usage is $24,050,000.00, each of which amounts constitutes a valid and subsisting obligation of the Loan Parties to the Lenders that is not subject to any credits, offsets, defenses, claims, counterclaims or adjustments of any kind (it being understood that the undrawn portion of the Stated Amount of outstanding Letters of Credit included in the Total Revolving Usage, if any, constitutes a contingent obligation for so long as the Loan Parties are not required to cash collateralize such obligation in accordance with the Credit Agreement).  Each of the Loan Parties hereby acknowledges its obligations under the respective Loan Documents to which it is a party, reaffirms that each of the Liens created and granted in or pursuant to the Collateral Documents is valid and subsisting and agrees that this Amendment shall in no manner impair or otherwise adversely affect such obligations or Liens, except as explicitly set forth herein.

 

3.                                      Required Financial Information Deliverable Extension.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Fifth Amendment and Waiver, the Borrower shall deliver the Required Financial Information (as defined in the Fifth Amendment and Waiver) to the Agent for distribution to the Lenders promptly as soon as such information is filed with the SEC, but in no event later than February 15, 2018.  For the avoidance of doubt, the paragraph addressing delivery of financial statements and related materials immediately following Section 7.02(e) of the Credit Agreement shall apply to the foregoing delivery requirement.

3

7.                                      Incorporation of Amendment.  Except as specifically modified herein, the terms of the Loan Documents shall remain in full force and effect.  The execution, delivery and effectiveness of this Amendment shall not operate as a waiver of any right, power or remedy of the Agent under the Loan Documents, or constitute a waiver or amendment of any provision of the Loan Documents, except as expressly set forth herein.  This Amendment shall constitute a Loan Document.

 

8.                                      Representations and Warranties.  The Loan Parties hereby represent and warrant to the Agent and the Lenders as follows as of the Sixth Amendment Effective Date:

(e)                                  The execution, delivery and performance by each Loan Party of this Amendment does not and will not (i) contravene the terms of any of such Person’s Organization Documents, (ii) conflict with or result in any breach or contravention of, or the creation of any Lien under, any document evidencing any material Contractual Obligation to which such Person is a party or any order, injunction, writ or decree of any Governmental Authority to which such Person or its property is subject or (iii) violate any Requirement of Law.

 

(f)                                   No approval, consent, exemption, authorization or other action by, or notice to, or filing with, any court Governmental Authority or any other Person (except those that have been obtained and remain in effect and disclosure filings that are required to be made with the SEC) is necessary or required to be made or obtained by any Loan Party in connection with the execution, delivery or performance by, or enforcement against, such Loan Party of this Amendment.

 

(g)                                  After giving effect to this Amendment, (i) the representations and warranties of the Loan Parties contained in the Loan Documents are true and correct in all material respects on and as of the date hereof to the same extent as though made on and as of the date hereof except to the
