In addition to any other rights and remedies granted to the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties in the Loan Documents, following the occurrence and continuation of an Event of Default, the Collateral Agent on behalf of the Secured Parties may exercise all rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code, the Canadian PPSA, the Australian PPSA or any other applicable law. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, following the occurrence and continuation of an Event of Default, the Collateral Agent, without demand of performance or other demand, presentment, -197-


 
may, with the Lead Borrower’s consent (other than during the existence of an Event of Default under Section 11.01(b), (c), (h), (i) or (j)), on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Agent meeting the qualifications set forth above; provided that if the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrowers and the Lenders that no qualifying Person has accepted such appointment within such period, then such resignation shall nonetheless become effective in accordance with such notice and (a) such retiring 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 such retiring Agent on behalf of the Lenders under any of the Loan Documents, then such retiring Agent shall continue to hold such collateral security solely for purposes of maintaining the Secured Parties’ security interest thereon until such time as a successor Agent is appointed) and (b) all payments, communications and determinations provided to be made by, to or through such retiring Agent shall instead be made by or to each Lender directly, until such time as the Required Lenders (with the consent of the Lead Borrower, to the extent so required) appoint a successor Agent as provided for above in this Section 12.10. Upon the acceptance of a successor’s appointment hereunder (which, in the case of any third party providing services as a Collateral Agent hereunder may require the entry into such customary documentation reasonably satisfactory to the Lead Borrower as such third party provider shall require, including without limitation in certain jurisdictions a security trust deed or similar arrangement), such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all of the rights, powers, privileges and duties of such retiring Agent, and such retiring 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 Section). After such retiring Agent’s resignation hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, the provisions of this Section 12 and Section 13.01 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring 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 such retiring Agent was acting as an Agent hereunder. (b) Any resignation by JPMCB as administrative agent pursuant to this Section 12.10 shall also constitute its resignation as lender of the Swingline Loans to the extent that JPMCB is acting in such capacity at such time. Upon the acceptance of a successor’s appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder, (i) such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all of the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring lender of the Swingline Loans and (ii) the retiring lender of the Swingline Loans shall be discharged from all of its duties and obligations hereunder or under the other Loan Documents. Section 12.11 Collateral Matters and Guarantee Matters. The Lenders and the other Secured Parties (by virtue of their acceptance of the benefits of the Loan Documents) authorize the Collateral Agent to release any Collateral or Guarantors in accordance with Section 13.18 or if approved, authorized or ratified in accordance with Section 13.12. The Lenders and the other Secured Parties (by virtue of their acceptance of the benefits of the Loan Documents) hereby irrevocably authorize and instruct the Collateral Agent to, without any further consent of any Lender or any other Secured Party, (x) enter into (or acknowledge and consent to) or amend, renew, extend, supplement, restate, replace, waive or otherwise modify any intercreditor or subordination agreement (in form satisfactory to the Collateral Agent and deemed appropriate by it) with the collateral agent or other representative of holders of Indebtedness secured (and permitted to be secured) by a Lien on assets constituting a portion of the Collateral under any of Section 10.02(i) or (ll) (solely as it relates to clause (i) of Section 10.02) (and in accordance with the relevant requirements thereof) and, (y) enter into (or acknowledge and consent to) or amend, renew, extend, supplement, restate, replace, waive or otherwise modify any Permitted Junior Intercreditor Agreement with the collateral agent or other representative of holders of Indebtedness secured (and permitted to be secured) by a Lien on assets constituting a portion of the Collateral under any of Sections 10.02(c), (qq) and/or (ll) (solely as it relates to clause (c) or (qq) of Section 10.02) (and in accordance with the relevant requirements thereof) and (z) subject to the requirements of clause (II) below (including the proviso set forth therein), enter into (or acknowledge and consent to) or amend, renew, extend, supplement, restate, replace, waive or otherwise modify any intercreditor or -209-


 
subordination agreement (in form satisfactory to the Collateral Agent and deemed appropriate by it and in any event including customary access rights to the Trademarks and related rights and assets securing the applicable Junior Capital Transaction) with the collateral agent or other representative of holders of Indebtedness secured (and permitted to be secured) by a Lien on such Trademarks and related rights and assets under Section 10.02(rr) (and in accordance with the relevant requirements thereof) (any of the foregoing under clause (x) or this, clause (y) or this clause (z), an “Intercreditor Agreement”). The Lenders and the other Secured Parties (by virtue of their acceptance of the benefits of the Loan Documents) irrevocably agree that (x) the Collateral Agent may rely exclusively on a certificate of a Responsible Officer of the Lead Borrower as to whether any such other Liens are permitted hereunder and as to the respective assets constituting Collateral that secure (and are permitted to secure) such Indebtedness hereunder and (y) any Intercreditor Agreement entered into by the Collateral Agent shall be binding on the Secured Parties, and each Lender and each other Secured Party hereby agrees that it will take no actions contrary to the provisions of, if entered into and if applicable, any Intercreditor Agreement. Furthermore, the Lenders and the other Secured Parties (by virtue of their acceptance of the benefits of the Loan Documents) hereby authorize the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent to (I) release any Lien on any property granted to or held by the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent under any Loan Document (i) to the holder of any Lien on such property that is permitted by clauses (c), (i) or (z) of Section 10.02 in each case to the extent the contract or agreement pursuant to which such Lien is granted prohibits any other Liens on such property or (ii) that is or becomes Excluded Property; and the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent shall do so upon request of the Lead Borrower; provided that, prior to any such request, the Lead Borrower shall have in each case delivered to the Administrative Agent a certificate of a Responsible Officer of the Lead Borrower certifying (x) that such Lien is permitted under this Agreement, (y) in the case of a request pursuant to clause (i) of this sentence, that the contract or agreement pursuant to which such Lien is granted prohibits any other Lien on such property and (z) in the case of a request pursuant to clause (ii) of this sentence, that (A) such property is or has become Excluded Property and (B) if such property has become Excluded Property as a result of a contractual restriction, such restriction does not violate Section 10.09 and (II) subordinate any Lien on any property granted to or held by the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent under any Loan Document to the holder of any Lien on such property that is permitted by Section 10.02(rr) to the extent the contract or agreement pursuant to which such Lien is granted requires such subordination; and the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent shall do so upon request of the Lead Borrower; provided that (1) prior to any such request, the Lead Borrower shall have in each case delivered to the Administrative Agent a certificate of a Responsible Officer of the Lead Borrower certifying (x) that such Lien is permitted under this Agreement and (y) that the contract or agreement pursuant to which such Lien is granted requires such subordination, (2) all property subject to such subordination shall, immediately upon the consummation of such Junior Capital Transaction, be removed from, and not constitute or contribute to, any Borrowing Base, (3) on the date of the closing of such Junior Capital Transaction, the Borrowers shall repay the Revolving Loans in an amount equal to at least the amount all such property contributed to any Borrowing Base immediately prior to the consummation of such Junior Capital Transaction, (4) Aggregate Availability on a pro forma basis after giving effect to such Junior Capital Transaction shall be greater than Aggregate Availability immediately prior to such Junior Capital Transaction and (5) immediately prior to and immediately after giving effect (including pro forma effect) thereto, no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing or result from such Junior Capital Transaction. The Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent shall not be responsible for or have a duty to ascertain or inquire into any representation or warranty regarding the existence, value or collectability of the Collateral, the existence, priority or perfection of the Administrative Agent’s and the Collateral Agent’s Lien thereon, or any certificate prepared by any Loan Party in connection therewith, nor shall the -210-


 
Administrative Agent to change, establish or eliminate any Reserves or to add Accounts and Inventory acquired in a Permitted Acquisition to any Borrowing Base as provided herein; (6) without the prior written consent of the Supermajority Lenders, add Borrowers under this Agreement that are organized under the laws of a jurisdiction other than the United States, Australia, the Netherlands or Switzerland or, in each case, any state thereof or the District of Columbia; provided further that no Lender shall be required to lend to any such Borrower without the prior written consent of such Lender; or (7) without the prior written consent of the Supermajority Lenders, reduce the Aggregate Availability required by Section 10.10(b); or (78) without the prior written consent of the Required Facility Lenders, adversely affect the rights of Lenders under such Facility in respect of payments hereunder in a manner different than such amendment affects other Facility. (b) If, in connection with any proposed change, waiver, discharge or termination of any of the provisions of this Agreement as contemplated by clauses (i) through (v), inclusive, of the first proviso to Section 13.12(a), the consent of the Required Lenders is obtained but the consent of one or more of such other Lenders whose consent is required is not obtained, then the Lead Borrower shall have the right, so long as all non-consenting Lenders whose individual consent is required are treated as described in either clause (A) or (B) below, to either (A) replace each such non-consenting Lender or Lenders with one or more Replacement Lenders pursuant to Section 3.04 or (B) terminate such non-consenting Lender’s Commitments and/or repay the outstanding Revolving Loans of such Lender in accordance with Section 3.04; provided that, unless the Commitments that are terminated, and Revolving Loans repaid, pursuant to the preceding clause (B) are immediately replaced in full at such time through the addition of new Lenders or the increase of outstanding Loans of existing Lenders (who in each case must specifically consent thereto), then in the case of any action pursuant to preceding clause (B) the Required Lenders (determined after giving effect to the proposed action) shall specifically consent thereto; provided further that, in any event the Lead Borrower shall not have the right to replace a Lender, terminate its Commitments or repay its Revolving Loans solely as a result of the exercise of such Lender’s rights (and the withholding of any required consent by such Lender) pursuant to the second proviso to Section 13.12(a). (c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in clause (a) of this Section 13.12, the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and each Lender providing the relevant Revolving Commitment Increase may (i) in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.15, enter into an Incremental Revolving Commitment Agreement, and (ii) in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.19, enter into an Extension Amendment; provided that after the execution and delivery by the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and each such Lender may thereafter only be modified in accordance with the requirements of clause (a) above of this Section 13.12. (d) Without the consent of any other person, the applicable Loan Party or Parties and the Administrative Agent and/or Collateral Agent may (in its or their respective sole discretion, or shall, to the extent required by any Loan Document) enter into any amendment or waiver of any Loan Document, or enter into any new agreement or instrument, to effect the granting, perfection, protection, expansion or enhancement of any security interest in any Collateral or additional property to become Collateral for the benefit of the Secured Parties, or as required by local law to give effect to, or protect any security interest for the benefit of the Secured Parties, in any property or so that the security interests therein comply with applicable Requirements of Law. -227-
