Ladies and Gentlemen:

Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein are used with the meanings assigned to such terms in the Exhibits hereto.

In connection with the Transactions contemplated hereby, Wells Fargo Bank (the “Initial Lender”) hereby commits on a several, but not joint, basis to provide the percentage of the entire principal amount of the ABL Facility set forth opposite the Initial Lender’s name on Schedule 1 hereto (as such schedule may be amended or supplemented in accordance with the terms of this Commitment Letter), in each case, (i) upon the terms set forth or referred to in this letter, the Transaction Summary attached as Exhibit A hereto and the Summary of Terms attached as Exhibit B hereto (including Exhibit D referenced therein) (the “Term Sheet”) and (ii) the initial funding of which is subject only to the conditions set forth on Exhibit C hereto (such Exhibits A through D, including the annexes thereto, together with this letter, collectively, this “Commitment Letter”).

 

 

 

 

2.Titles and Roles.

 

It is agreed that:

 

(a)Wells Fargo will act as sole lead arranger and sole bookrunner for the ABL Facility (acting in such capacities, the “Lead Arranger”); and

 

(b)Wells Fargo will act as sole administrative agent and as sole collateral agent for the ABL Facility (the “ABL Agent”).

 

You agree that no other agents, co-agents, lead arrangers, bookrunners, managers or arrangers will be appointed, no other titles will be awarded and no compensation (other than that expressly contemplated in the fee letter dated the date hereof and delivered in connection herewith (the “Fee Letter”)) will be paid to obtain the commitments of the Lenders under the ABL Facility unless you and we shall so reasonably agree.

 

3.Information.

 

You hereby represent that to your knowledge with respect to the Target and its subsidiaries, (a) all written information concerning Holdings, the Borrowers and their respective subsidiaries and the Target and its subsidiaries (other than the projections, budgets, estimates, other forward-looking and/or projected information (collectively, the “Projections”) and information of a general economic or industry-specific nature) that has been or will be made available to any of us by Holdings, the Borrowers or any of their respective representatives on your behalf in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby (the “Information”), when taken as a whole, does not or will not, when furnished, contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements contained therein not materially misleading in light of the circumstances under which such statements are made (after giving effect to all supplements and updates thereto from time to time) and (b) the Projections have been or will be prepared in good faith based upon assumptions believed by you to be reasonable at the time furnished (it being recognized by the Commitment Parties that such Projections are not to be viewed as facts and are subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies many of which are beyond your control, that no assurance can be given that any particular financial projections will be realized, that actual results may differ from projected results and that such differences may be material). You agree that if, at any time prior to the Closing Date, you become aware that any of the representations in the preceding sentence would be incorrect if the Information or the Projections were being furnished and such representations were being made at such time, you will (or prior to the Closing Date with respect to Information and Projections concerning the Target and its subsidiaries, you will use commercially reasonable efforts to) promptly supplement the Information and the Projections so that (to your knowledge with respect to the Target and its subsidiaries) the representations in the preceding sentence remain true in all material respects; provided, that any such supplementation shall cure any breach of such representations. You understand that in arranging the ABL Facility, we may use and rely on the Information and Projections without independent verification thereof and we do not assume responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of the Information or the Projections. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Commitment Letter or the Fee Letter, the accuracy of any such representation or supplement shall not constitute a condition precedent to the availability and/or initial funding of the ABL Facility on the Closing Date.

 

4.Fee Letter.

 

As consideration for the commitments and agreements of the Commitment Parties hereunder, you agree to pay or cause to be paid the fees described in the Fee Letter on the terms and subject to the conditions (including as to timing and amount) set forth therein.

5.Limited Conditionality Provision.

 

Notwithstanding anything in this Commitment Letter, the Fee Letter, the Credit Documentation or any other letter agreement or other undertaking concerning the financing of the transactions contemplated hereby to the contrary, (a) the only representations relating to Holdings, the Borrowers, the Target and their respective subsidiaries and their respective businesses, the accuracy of which shall be a condition to the availability and initial funding of the ABL Facility on the Closing Date, shall be (i) such of the representations made by or on behalf of the Target, their subsidiaries or their respective businesses in the Merger Agreement as are material to the interests of the Lenders, but only to the extent that you or your applicable affiliate have the right (giving effect to applicable cure provisions) to terminate your (or its) obligations under the Merger Agreement or to decline to consummate the Acquisition as a result of a breach of such representations in the Merger Agreement (to such extent, the “Specified Merger Agreement Representations”) and (ii) the Specified Representations (as defined below), (b) the terms of the Credit Documentation shall be in a form such that they do not impair the availability of the ABL Facility on the Closing Date if the conditions set forth on Exhibit C hereto are satisfied (or waived by us) (it being understood and agreed that to the extent any Collateral (including the creation or perfection of any security interest) is not or cannot be provided on the Closing Date (other than, to the extent required under the Term Sheet, (i) the perfection of a lien on Collateral that is of the type where a lien on such Collateral may be perfected solely by the filing of a financing statement under the Uniform Commercial Code (“UCC”) or by filing form MR01 with the Registrar of Companies House in respect of any Loan Party incorporated in England and Wales and (ii) a pledge or charge of the equity interests of the Borrowers and the Subsidiary Guarantors with respect to which a lien may be perfected on the Closing Date by the delivery of a stock or equivalent certificate (together with a stock power or similar instrument of transfer endorsed in blank for the relevant certificate) to the extent (other than in the case of stock or equivalent certificates of Industrea Merger Sub (as defined in Exhibit B hereto)) such certificates are delivered to you under the Merger Agreement prior to the Closing Date (after your use of commercially reasonable efforts to obtain such certificates)), after your use of commercially reasonable efforts to do so without undue burden or expense, then the provision and/or perfection of such Collateral shall not constitute a condition precedent to the availability or initial funding of the ABL Facility on the Closing Date but may instead be delivered and/or perfected within 90 days (or such longer period as the ABL Agent may reasonably agree) after the Closing Date pursuant to arrangements to be mutually agreed by the parties hereto acting reasonably) and (c) the only conditions (express or implied) to the availability of the ABL Facility on the Closing Date are those expressly set forth on Exhibit C hereto, and such conditions shall be subject in all respects to the provisions of this paragraph.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, your compliance with your obligations under this Commitment Letter and/or the Fee Letter, other than your satisfaction (or procurement of a waiver) solely of the conditions described on Exhibit C hereto, is not a condition to the availability of the ABL Facility on the Closing Date.

  (i) the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin; or

  The “LIBOR Rate” means the rate per annum as published by ICE Benchmark Administration Limited (or any successor page or other commercially available source as the Agent may designate from time to time) as of 11:00 a.m., London time (i) in respect of loans to the U.S. Borrowers, two Business Days prior to the commencement of the requested interest period, for a term, and in an amount, comparable to the interest period and the amount of the LIBOR Rate Loan requested (whether as an initial LIBOR Rate Loan or as a continuation of a LIBOR Rate Loan or as a conversion of a Base Rate Loan to a LIBOR Rate Loan) by U.S. Borrowers or (ii) in respect of loans to the U.K. Borrowers, the 30 day rate for the relevant currency on the last Business Day of the calendar month before the month in which such rate is to be applied, in each case in accordance with the definitive credit agreement (and, if any such published rate is below zero, then the LIBOR Rate shall be deemed to be zero).   Each determination of the LIBOR Rate shall be made by the Agent and shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.  The LIBOR Rate for loans to U.S. Borrowers shall be available for interest periods of 1, 2, 3 or 6 months and the LIBOR Rate for loans to U.K. Borrowers shall be the applicable 30 day rate.
