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

 

1.Commitments.

 

In connection with the Transactions contemplated hereby, CS AG (together with any other Initial Lender appointed as described below, collectively, the “Initial Lenders”) hereby commits on a several, but not joint, basis to provide the percentage of the entire principal amount of the Term Facility set forth opposite such 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)CSLF, together with any other Term Lead Arranger appointed as described below, will act as joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners for the Term Facility (acting in such capacities, the “Lead Arrangers”); and

 

 

 

 

(b)CS AG will act as sole administrative agent and as sole collateral agent for the Term Facility (the “Term Agent”).

 

Except as set forth below, 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 Term Facility unless you and we shall so reasonably agree; provided that CSLF will have “left” placement (the “Left Lead Arranger”) in any marketing materials or other documentation used in connection with the Term Facility and the other agents (or their affiliates, as applicable) for the Term Facility will be listed to the right of CSLF in an order determined by you in consultation with the Commitment Parties in any marketing materials or other documentation used in connection with the Term Facility.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may, on or prior to the date which is 15 business days after the Acceptance Date, appoint up to two additional agents, co-agents, lead arrangers, bookrunners, managers or arrangers or confer other titles in respect of the Term Facility (any such agent, co-agent, lead arranger, bookrunner, manager, arranger or other titled institution, an “Additional Agent”) in a manner and with economics determined by you in consultation with the Left Lead Arranger (it being understood that (a) no Additional Agent shall be entitled to a greater percentage of the economics than the Initial Commitment Party, (b) you may not allocate more than 66.66% of the total economics in respect of the Term Facility to Additional Agents (or their affiliates), (c) each Additional Agent (or its affiliate) shall assume a proportion of the commitments with respect to the Term Facility that is equal to the proportion of the economics allocated to such Additional Agent (or its affiliates) in respect thereof, and Schedule 1 hereto shall be automatically amended accordingly as it pertains to the Term Facility and (d) to the extent you appoint (or confer titles on) any Additional Agent, the economics allocated to, and the commitment amounts of, each relevant Commitment Party in respect of the Term Facility will be proportionately reduced (or otherwise reduced in a manner agreed by you and us) by the amount of the economics allocated to, and the commitment amount of, such Additional Agent (or its affiliate), in each case upon the execution and delivery by such Additional Agent of customary joinder documentation reasonably acceptable to you and us, and thereafter, such Additional Agent shall constitute a “Commitment Party,” “Initial Lender” and/or “Term Lead Arranger”, as applicable, under this Commitment Letter and under the Fee Letter).

 

3.Syndication.

 

We intend to syndicate the Term Facility to a group of lenders identified by us in consultation with you and acceptable to you (it being understood and agreed that your consent may not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) (such lenders, the “Lenders”); it being understood and agreed that we will not syndicate to any Disqualified Institution (as defined below).

 

Disqualified Institution” means:

 

(a)         (i) any person identified by you or the Sponsor to us in writing prior to the date hereof, (ii) any affiliate of any person described in clause (i) above that is reasonably identifiable based solely on the name of such affiliate and (iii) any other affiliate of any person described in clause (i) above that is identified in a written notice to the Left Lead Arranger (or, after the Closing Date, the Term Agent, as applicable) after the date hereof (each such person, a “Disqualified Lending Institution”); and/or

 

 2 

 

 

(b)         (i) any person that is a competitor of the Target and/or any of its subsidiaries (each such person, a “Competitor”) and/or any affiliate of any competitor, in each case that is identified by you or the Sponsor to us in writing prior to the date hereof, (ii) any Competitor that is identified in writing to the Left Lead Arranger (if after the date hereof and prior to the Closing Date) or the Term Agent, as applicable (if after the Closing Date), (iii) any affiliate of any person described in clauses (i) and/or (ii) above (other than any bona fide debt fund affiliate) that is reasonably identifiable based solely on the name of such affiliate) and (iv) any other affiliate of any person described in clauses (i), (ii) and/or (iii) above that is identified by a written notice to the Left Lead Arranger (or, after the Closing Date, the Term Agent, as applicable) after the date hereof (it being understood and agreed that no bona fide debt fund affiliate of any Competitor may be designated as Disqualified Institution pursuant to this clause (iv));

 

provided that no written notice delivered pursuant to clauses (a)(iii), (b)(ii) and/or (b)(iv) above shall apply retroactively to disqualify any person that has previously acquired an assignment or participation interest in the Loans.

 

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Commitment Letter to the contrary and notwithstanding any syndication, assignment or other transfer by any Initial Lender, other than in connection with any assignment to an Additional Agent upon designation of such Additional Agent as an Initial Lender and the execution and delivery by such Additional Agent of customary joinder documentation, in each case pursuant to Section 2 hereof of the amount allocated to such Additional Agent, (a) no Initial Lender shall be relieved, released or novated from its obligations hereunder (including its obligation to fund its applicable percentage of the Term Facility on the Closing Date if the conditions set forth on Exhibit D hereto are satisfied or waived) in connection with any syndication, assignment or other transfer until after the initial funding of the Term Facility on the Closing Date, (b) no such syndication, assignment or other transfer shall become effective with respect to any portion of any Initial Lender’s commitments in respect of the Term Facility until the initial funding of the Term Facility on the Closing Date and (c) unless you agree in writing in your sole discretion, each Initial Lender, each Commitment Party and each Lead Arranger shall retain exclusive control over all rights and obligations with respect to its commitments in respect of the Term Facility, including all rights with respect to consents, waivers, modifications, supplements and amendments, until the Closing Date has occurred.

Such assistance shall include (a) using your commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the syndication efforts benefit from your existing banking relationships and those of the Sponsor and, to the extent practical and appropriate and in all instances not in contravention of the terms of the Merger Agreement, the Target, (b) facilitating direct contact between appropriate members of senior management of you, on the one hand, and the proposed Lenders, on the other hand (and using your commercially reasonable efforts to ensure such contact between non-legal advisors of you and appropriate members of senior management and non-legal advisors of the Target, on the one hand, and the proposed Lenders, on the other hand, to the extent practical and appropriate and in all instances not in contravention of the terms of the Merger Agreement), in all cases at times and locations to be mutually agreed upon, (c) your and the Sponsor’s assistance and provision of information for use (and using your commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Target to assist and provide information for use, to the extent practical and appropriate and in all instances not in contravention of the terms of the Merger Agreement) in the preparation of a customary confidential information memorandum (the “CIM”) and other customary marketing materials to be used in connection with the syndication of the Term Facility, (d) the hosting, with the Lead Arrangers, of meetings (or, if you and we shall agree, conference calls in lieu of any such meetings) of prospective Lenders (limited to one “bank meeting”, unless otherwise deemed reasonably necessary by the Lead Arrangers) at times and locations to be mutually agreed (and, to the extent practical and appropriate and in all instances not in contravention of the terms of the Merger Agreement, using your commercially reasonable efforts to cause the senior management of the Target to be available for such meetings), (e) during the Syndication Period, your ensuring that there is no competing issuance or incurrence of debt securities or bank financing by or on behalf of Holdings, the Borrower or their respective subsidiaries and your using commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that there are no competing issuances or incurrences of debt securities or bank financing by and on behalf of the Target or its subsidiaries announced, offered, placed or arranged (other than, for the avoidance of doubt, (A) the Term Facility, (B) the ABL Facility and (C) the Permitted Surviving Debt), in each case that could reasonably be expected to materially impair the primary syndication of the Term Facility (it being understood and agreed that the Target and its subsidiaries’ deferred purchase price obligations, ordinary course working capital facilities and ordinary course capital leases, purchase money and equipment financings, together with any replacement, renewal and extension thereof, in each case, will not be deemed to materially impair the primary syndication of the Term Facility) and (f) using your commercially reasonable efforts to obtain public corporate credit or public corporate family ratings, as applicable, of the Borrower and public ratings (but not specific ratings) for the Term Facility from each of Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. (“Moody’s”) and Standard & Poor’s Financial Services LLC (“S&P”), a subsidiary of S&P Global Inc., prior to the commencement of the Marketing Period (it being understood that obtaining such ratings is in no event a condition to the commitments hereunder).

The Lead Arrangers, in their capacity as such, will manage, in consultation with you (and subject to your consent rights set forth in the first paragraph of this Section 3 and your rights of appointment set forth in Section 2), all aspects of the syndication, including decisions as to the selection of prospective Lenders to be approached (which may not be Disqualified Institutions) and when they will be approached, when the Lenders’ commitments will be accepted, which Lenders will participate, the allocation of the commitments among the Lenders and the amount and distribution of fees among the Lenders.

 

You acknowledge that (a) the Lead Arrangers will make available customary marketing materials (the “Information Materials”), including a CIM (containing customary language exculpating Holdings, you, the Sponsor, the Target, your and their respective affiliates, and the Commitment Parties and their respective affiliates with respect to any liability related to the use of the contents of the Public Package (as defined below)) and a customary lenders’ presentation to the proposed syndicate of Lenders by posting the Information Materials on IntraLinks, SyndTrak or another similar secure electronic system (the “Platform”) and (b) certain of the prospective Lenders may be “public side” Lenders (i.e., Lenders that have personnel that do not wish to receive material non-public information within the meaning of the United States federal or state securities laws with respect to Holdings, the Borrower, the Target, their respective subsidiaries, or the respective securities of any of the foregoing (“MNPI”) (each, a “Public Lender” and, collectively, the “Public Lenders”)). At the request of the Lead Arrangers, you agree to assist and, to the extent practical and appropriate and in all instances not in contravention of the terms of the Merger Agreement, to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Target to assist us in preparing an additional version of the information package and presentation consisting exclusively of information and documentation with respect to Holdings, the Borrower, the Target, their respective subsidiaries, the respective securities of any of the foregoing that is either information of a type that would be made publicly available if Holdings, the Borrower or the Target were to become public reporting companies or not material with respect to Holdings, the Borrower, the Target, your and their respective subsidiaries, any of their respective securities for purposes of United States federal or state securities laws (and is not otherwise MNPI) (the “Public Package”). It is understood that in connection with your assistance described above, customary authorization letters will be included in the CIM that (i) authorize the distribution of the CIM to prospective Lenders, (ii) confirm that the Public Package does not include MNPI or any information of a type that would not be publicly available if Holdings, the Borrower, or the Target were public reporting companies and (iii) contain a customary “10b-5 representation”. You acknowledge and agree that, in addition to the Public Package, the following documents may be distributed to all prospective Lenders (other than Disqualified Institutions), including prospective Public Lenders (except to the extent you notify us in writing to the contrary prior to distribution and provided that you have been given a reasonable opportunity to review such documents and comply with applicable disclosure obligations), subject to confidentiality and other provisions of this Commitment Letter: (i) the Term Sheet, (ii) drafts and final definitive documentation with respect to the Term Facility, (iii) administrative materials prepared by the Lead Arrangers for prospective Lenders (such as lender meeting invitations, allocations and funding and closing memoranda) and (iv) notifications of changes in the terms of the Term Facility.

We shall be entitled to treat any Information and Projections that are not specifically identified as “PUBLIC” as being suitable only for posting on a portion of the Platform not designated for Public Lenders.

4.Information.

 

You hereby represent that to your knowledge with respect to the Target and its subsidiaries, (a) all written information concerning Holdings, the Borrower 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 Borrower 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 later of the expiration of the Syndication Period and 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 and syndicating the Term 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 Term Facility on the Closing Date.

5.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.

 

6.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 Borrower, 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 Term 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 Term 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”) and (ii) a pledge of the equity interests of the Borrower 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 or 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 Term Facility on the Closing Date but may instead be delivered and/or perfected within 90 days (or such longer period as the Term 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 Term 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 Term Facility on the Closing Date. The Lead Arrangers will cooperate with you as reasonably requested in coordinating the timing and procedures for the funding of the Term Facility in a manner consistent with the Merger Agreement.

  (i) no event of default exists or would exist after giving effect thereto (provided that to the extent the proceeds of an Incremental Term Facility will be used to finance a Limited Condition Transaction, the lenders providing such Incremental Term Facility may agree to a “funds certain” provision that does not impose as a condition to funding thereof that no event of default exist at the time the transaction is consummated, in which case such condition shall be required to be satisfied on the date the applicable Limited Condition Transaction agreement is executed and effective or prepayment or restricted payment is declared, as applicable);
     
  (ii) any Incremental Term Facility will have a final maturity date no earlier than the then-existing Term Loan Maturity Date;
     
  (iii) the weighted average life to maturity applicable to each Incremental Term Facility shall not be shorter than the weighted average life to maturity of the then-existing Term Facility;
     
  (iv) the interest rate applicable to any Incremental Term Facility will be determined by the Borrower and the lenders providing such Incremental Term Facility and, in the case of any Incremental Term Facility incurred within 12 months of the Closing Date (other than any Incremental Term Facility maturing more than twelve (12) months after the maturity date of the initial Term Loans) that is pari passu with the initial Term Facility in right of payment and with respect to security, such interest rate will not be more than 0.50% higher than the corresponding interest rate applicable to the initial Term Facility unless the interest rate margin with respect to the initial Term Facility is adjusted to be equal to the interest rate with respect to the relevant Incremental Term Facility, minus, 0.50%; provided that in determining the applicable interest rate: (w) OID or upfront fees paid by the Borrower in connection with such Incremental Term Facility or the initial Term Facility (based on a 4-year average life to maturity or lesser remaining average life to maturity) shall be included, (x) any amendments to the Applicable Margin on the initial Term Facility that became effective subsequent to the Closing Date but prior to the time of the addition of such Incremental Term Facility shall be included, (y) arrangement, commitment, structuring, underwriting fees and amendment fees paid or payable to the Lead Arrangers (or their affiliates) in their respective capacities as such in connection with the initial Term Facility or to one or more arrangers (or their affiliates) in their capacities as such (regardless of whether such fees are paid to or shared in whole in part with any lender) applicable to such Incremental Term Facility and any other fees not paid generally to all lenders ratably shall be excluded and (z) if such Incremental Term Facility includes any “LIBOR” interest rate floor greater than that applicable to the initial Term Facility and such floor is applicable to the initial Term Facility on the date of determination, such excess amount shall be equated to interest margin for determining the increase (but only to the extent an increase in the floor applicable to such initial Term Facility would cause an increase in the interest rate then in effect thereunder);

  (v) any Incremental Term Facility may rank pari passu or junior in right of payment and pari passu or junior with respect to security with the Term Facility and, if secured, may not be secured by any assets other than the Collateral or may be unsecured (and to the extent subordinated in right of payment or security, subject to intercreditor arrangements reasonably satisfactory to the Agent) and, if guaranteed, may not be guaranteed by any Restricted Subsidiary which is not a Loan Party; and
     
  (vi)  (A) no Incremental Term Facility shall share more favorably than ratably in any mandatory prepayments of the Term Facility,  and (B) except as otherwise provided above (including with respect to margin, pricing, maturity and/or fees), the terms of any Incremental Term Facility shall be substantially similar to, or (taken as a whole) no more favorable (as reasonably determined by the Borrower) to the lenders or holders providing such Incremental Term Facility than, those applicable to the initial Term Loans (except to the extent (A) such terms are conformed (or added) in the Credit Documentation for the benefit of the initial Term Loans pursuant to an amendment thereto subject solely to the reasonable satisfaction of the Agent, (B) applicable solely to periods after the latest final maturity date of the initial Term Loans existing at the time of such incurrence or issuance or (C) otherwise reasonably acceptable to the Agent).

 Exhibit B – Page 6 

 

 

  Any Incremental Term Facility may be provided by existing Lenders or, subject to the reasonable consent of the Agent, other persons who become Lenders in connection therewith if such consent would be required under the heading “Assignments and Participations” below for assignments or participations of Term Loans or commitments, as applicable, to such person; provided, that no existing Lender will be obligated to provide any such Incremental Term Facility.
   
  At the option of the Borrower, any loans or commitments incurred under any Incremental Term Facility may be deemed to have been incurred under the Incremental Incurrence-Based Component prior to the Fixed Incremental Amount.
   
  Any portion of any Incremental Term Facility incurred in reliance on the Fixed Incremental Amount may be reclassified, as the Borrower may elect from time to time by notice in writing to the Agent, as incurred under the Incremental Incurrence-Based Component if the Borrower meets the applicable ratio for the Incremental Incurrence-Based Component at such time on a pro forma basis.
   
  The proceeds of any Incremental Term Facility may be used by the Borrower and its subsidiaries for working capital and other general corporate purposes, including the financing of permitted acquisitions and other investments and any other use not prohibited by the Credit Documentation.
   
  To the extent the proceeds of any Incremental Term Facility are intended to be applied to finance a Limited Condition Transaction or an acquisition or other investment that is otherwise permitted under the Credit Documentation, the availability thereof shall, if agreed by the lenders providing such Incremental Term Facility, be subject to customary “SunGard” or other applicable “certain funds” conditionality provisions, it being understood that the availability of such Incremental Term Facility shall nevertheless be subject to the absence of any payment or bankruptcy (with respect to the Borrower) event of default on the date such Incremental Term Facility is funded.

  The Credit Documentation will permit the Borrower to issue notes or borrow loans (or obtain commitments in respect thereof) in lieu of loans (or commitments) under the Incremental Term Facility (so long as the applicable conditions to borrowing loans under the Incremental Term Facility would have been satisfied) that are (at the option of the Borrower) unsecured or secured by the Collateral on a pari passu or junior basis (“Incremental Equivalent Debt”); it being understood and agreed that, other than with respect to Incremental Equivalent Debt incurred in the form of term loans that are pari passu in right of payment and secured on a pari passu basis with the Term Loans, the Term Facility shall not be subject to a “most favored nation” pricing adjustment as a result of the issuance or incurrence of such Incremental Equivalent Debt.
   
  As used herein,

 

  (a) Consolidated Total Debt”, on any date of determination, will be defined as:

 

  (i) the amount of third party consolidated indebtedness for borrowed money, purchase money indebtedness and/or capital lease obligations of the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries on the applicable date of determination, minus
     
  (ii) after the Closing Date, the unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries in an amount not to exceed $50 million (“Unrestricted Cash”),

 

  (b) First Lien Leverage Ratio” will be defined as the ratio of (i) Consolidated Total Debt that is secured by a first-priority lien on any property or assets of Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries (including, for the avoidance of doubt, indebtedness under the ABL Facility) to (ii) trailing 4-quarter Consolidated EBITDA (as described below),
     
  (c) Secured Leverage Ratio” will be defined as the ratio of (i) Consolidated Total Debt that is secured by a lien on any property or assets of Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries to (ii) trailing 4-quarter Consolidated EBITDA, and
     
  (d) Total Leverage Ratio” will be defined as the ratio of (i) Consolidated Total Debt to (ii) trailing 4-quarter Consolidated EBITDA.
     
  (e) Interest Coverage Ratio” will be defined as the ratio of (i) trailing 4-quarter Consolidated EBITDA to (ii) scheduled cash interest payments payable for such period (or annualized for the first three full fiscal quarters after the Closing Date).

 Exhibit B – Page 8 

 

 

  For purposes of the Credit Documentation, “Consolidated EBITDA” (and, without duplication, component definitions, including, without limitation, net income) will (x) be based upon the consolidated net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) of the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries, (y) include the Identified Add-backs defined below and (z) otherwise be defined in a manner to be mutually agreed consistent with the Documentation Considerations.
   
  For purposes of the foregoing, the “Identified Add-backs” shall mean:
   
  (i) pro forma “run rate” cost savings, operating expense reductions and synergies related to the Transactions and other acquisitions, investments, dispositions, divestitures, restructurings, operating improvements, cost savings initiatives and other similar initiatives and other “specified transactions” that are reasonably identifiable and factually supportable and projected by the Borrower in good faith to result from actions that have been taken or with respect to which substantial steps have been taken or are expected to be taken (in the good faith determination of the Borrower) within 18 months after the Closing Date (in the case of the Transactions) or such transaction (in the case of any other transaction, initiative or event) (pro forma “run rate” being the full benefit associated with any action taken or with respect to which substantial steps have been taken or are expected to be taken calculated on a pro forma basis as though such cost savings, operating expense reductions and synergies had been fully realized on the first day of the applicable period for the entirety of such period);
   
  (ii) an add-back for restructuring and related charges;
   
  (iii) an add-back for costs and expenses incurred in connection with the Transactions, acquisitions, investments, dispositions, debt and equity issuances permitted under the Credit Documentation and amendments or waivers to the Credit Documentation and other debt agreements, and management fees;
   
  (iv) an add-back for extraordinary, unusual or non-recurring losses, charges or expenses; and
   
  (v) adjustments, exclusions and add-backs reflected in the Projections.
   
  As used herein:  
   
  Limited Condition Transaction” means any acquisition or similar investment by the Borrower or one or more of its subsidiaries permitted pursuant to the Credit Documentation whose consummation is not conditioned on the availability of, or on obtaining, third party financing, in each case which is designated as a Limited Condition Transaction by the Borrower or such subsidiary in writing to the applicable Agent.

  For purposes of (i) determining compliance with any provision of the Credit Documentation which requires the calculation of a financial ratio, (ii) determining compliance with representations, warranties, defaults or events of default or (iii) testing availability under baskets set forth in the Credit Documentation (including baskets measured as a percentage of Consolidated EBITDA or consolidated total assets), in each case, in connection with a Limited Condition Transaction, at the Borrower’s option, the relevant ratios, compliance requirements and basket availability shall be determined as of the date the definitive Limited Condition Transaction agreement for such Limited Condition Transaction is entered into (such date, the “LCT Test Date”), and if, after giving pro forma effect to the Limited Condition Transactions and the other transactions to be entered into in connection therewith as if they had occurred at the beginning of the most recent test period ending prior to the LCT Test Date, the Borrower could have taken such action on the relevant LCT Test Date in compliance with such ratio, requirement or basket, such ratio, requirement or basket shall be deemed to have been complied with.
   
  Without limiting the foregoing, in the case of the incurrence of any indebtedness (other than any Incremental Term Facility or any Incremental Equivalent Debt, which shall remain subject to the terms thereof with respect to the impact, if any, of a Limited Condition Transaction) or liens or the making of any investments, restricted payments, asset sales or fundamental changes or the designation of a restricted subsidiary or unrestricted subsidiary in connection with a Limited Condition Transaction (each, a “Specified Transaction”), at the Borrower’s option, the relevant ratios and baskets shall be determined as of the LCT Test Date as if the acquisition or other transaction and other pro forma events in connection therewith were consummated on such date; provided that if the Borrower has made such an election, in connection with the subsequent calculation of any ratio or basket with respect to any Specified Transaction on or following such date and prior to the earlier of the date on which such Limited Condition Transaction is consummated or the Limited Condition Transaction agreement for such acquisition is terminated, any such ratio or basket shall be calculated on a pro forma basis assuming such acquisition, prepayment, restricted payment and other pro forma events in connection therewith (including any incurrence of indebtedness) have been consummated, except that Consolidated EBITDA, assets and consolidated net income of any target of such acquisition can only be used in the determination of the relevant ratios and baskets if and when such acquisition is closed.

Refinancing Term Facility: The Borrower shall have the right to refinance and/or replace the Term Loans (and loans and commitments under any Incremental Term Facility) in whole or in part with (x) one or more new term facilities (each, a “Refinancing Term Facility”) under the Credit Documentation with the consent of the Borrower and the institutions providing such Refinancing Term Facility and/or (y) one or more series of notes or loans, in the case of each of clause (x) and (y), that will be pari passu or junior in right of payment and be secured by the Collateral on a pari passu or junior basis with the remaining portion of the Term Facility or be unsecured (such notes or loans, the “Refinancing Notes”); provided, that
   
  (a) any Refinancing Term Facility or issue of Refinancing Notes that is pari passu or junior with respect to security shall be subject to a customary intercreditor agreement, the material terms of which shall be reasonably acceptable to the Agent and the Borrower,
   
  (b) no Refinancing Term Facility or Refinancing Notes shall mature prior to the latest maturity date of the Term Facility being refinanced or replaced and no Refinancing Term Facility or Refinancing Notes shall have a shorter weighted average life than the Term Loans being refinanced or replaced,
   
  (c) any Refinancing Term Facility or issuance of Refinancing Notes shall have pricing (including interest, fees and premiums), optional prepayment and redemption terms as may be agreed to by the Borrower and the lenders party thereto,
   
  (d) if any such Refinancing Term Facility or issuance of Refinancing Notes is secured, it shall not be secured by any assets other than the Collateral,
   
  (e) if any such Refinancing Term Facility or issuance of Refinancing Notes is guaranteed, it shall not be guaranteed by any subsidiaries of the Borrower other than the Guarantors,
   
  (f) the other terms and conditions (excluding those referenced in clauses (b) through (f) above) of such Refinancing Term Facility or issuance of Refinancing Notes shall be substantially identical to, or (taken as a whole) not materially more favorable (as reasonably determined by the Borrower) to the lenders providing such Refinancing Term Facility or the holders of such Refinancing Notes than those applicable to the loans or commitments being refinancing or replaced (except for covenants or other provisions applicable only to periods after the latest final maturity date of the relevant loans or commitments existing at the time of such refinancing or replacement) or such terms shall be current market terms and conditions (taken as a whole) at the time of incurrence or issuance for such type of indebtedness (as reasonably determined by the Borrower),

Optional Prepayments: Term Loans may be prepaid, in whole or in part, without premium or penalty (except as described under the heading “Term Loan Prepayment Fee” below), in minimum amounts to be agreed, at the option of the Borrower at any time upon 1 business day’s (or, in the case of a prepayment of Eurodollar Loans (as defined in Annex I hereto), 3 business days’) prior notice, subject to reimbursement of the Lenders’ actual redeployment costs in the case of a prepayment of Eurodollar Loans prior to the last day of the relevant interest period.  Optional prepayments of the Term Loans shall be applied to the Term Loans and the installments thereof as directed by the Borrower (or, in the absence of direction from the Borrower, in the direct order of maturity).
   
Term Loan Prepayment Fee: Any Repricing Transaction (as defined below) consummated prior to the date that is 6 months after the Closing Date will be subject to a prepayment premium of 1.00% on the principal amount of the initial Term Loans prepaid or, in the case of any amendment, the principal amount of the relevant initial Term Loans outstanding immediately prior to (and subject to) such amendment (including the principal amount of any initial Term Loans of any Lender which are required to be assigned in accordance with the “yank-a-bank” provisions set forth in the Credit Documentation as a result of such Lender’s failure to consent to such amendment).

  For purposes of the Credit Documentation, “Repricing Transaction” means the refinancing or repricing by the Borrower of all or any portion of the initial Term Loans the primary purpose of which is to reduce the all-in-yield applicable to such Term Loans (x) with the proceeds of any secured term loans incurred or guaranteed by the Borrower or any Guarantor or (y) in connection with any amendment to the Credit Documentation, in either case, (i) having or resulting in an effective interest rate (to be calculated in a manner consistent with that set forth above in clause (iv) of the proviso to the first sentence under the heading “Incremental Term Facility” above) as of the date of such refinancing or repricing that is (and not by virtue of any fluctuation in any “base” rate) less than the effective interest rate applicable to the initial Term Loans as of the date of such refinancing or repricing and (ii) in the case of a refinancing of such Term Loans, the proceeds of which are used to repay, in whole or in part, the principal of outstanding Term Loans, but excluding, in any such case, any refinancing or repricing of Term Loans in connection with any Transformative Acquisition or “change of control” transaction.
   
  Transformative Acquisition” shall mean any acquisition or investment by the Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary that either (a) is not permitted by the terms of the Credit Documentation immediately prior to the consummation of such acquisition or investment or (b) if permitted by the terms of the Credit Documentation immediately prior to the consummation of such acquisition or investment, would not provide the Borrower and its subsidiaries with adequate flexibility under the Credit Documentation for the continuation and/or expansion of their combined operations following such consummation, as determined by the Borrower acting in good faith.
   
Mandatory Prepayments: The following amounts shall be applied to prepay the Term Loans, in each case with carveouts and exceptions consistent with the Documentation Considerations:

 

  (a) 100% of the net cash proceeds of any incurrence of debt by the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries (other than debt otherwise permitted under the Credit Documentation (other than indebtedness incurred pursuant to a Refinancing Term Facility or an issuance of Refinancing Notes to refinance or replace the Term Loans or loans under an Incremental Term Facility));
     
  (b) 100% of the net cash proceeds in excess of, with respect to any single disposition or series or related dispositions, the greater of $4.0 million and 5% of Consolidated EBITDA (and only to the extent of such excess), and $8.0 million and 10% of Consolidated EBITDA per fiscal year (and only to the extent of such excess) (the “Asset Sale Thresholds”), of any non-ordinary course sale or other disposition of assets to be agreed and excluding in any event dispositions of ABL Priority Collateral (as defined below) to the extent that the net cash proceeds thereof are required to be applied to repay loans outstanding under the ABL Facility in order to be in compliance with the “Borrowing Base” (as defined in the ABL Facility documentation) (subject to reinvestment of such proceeds in assets useful in the operations of the Borrower or its subsidiaries within 12 months following receipt (or, if the Borrower or its subsidiaries have committed to reinvest such proceeds within such 12-month period, reinvestment within 6 months following such 12-month period));

 Exhibit B – Page 13 

 

 

  (c) 50% of Excess Cash Flow (to be defined in a manner consistent with the Documentation Considerations, but in any event to take into account the provisions described below) for each fiscal year of the Borrower (commencing with the fiscal year ending October 31, 2019); provided, that:

 

  (i) any such Excess Cash Flow prepayment shall be required only if the amount of the prepayment exceeds $7.5 million and only to the extent in excess thereof,
     
  (ii) the foregoing percentage shall be reduced to 25% and 0% for any fiscal year with respect to which the First Lien Leverage Ratio (at the time of the respective payment and recalculated to give pro forma effect to any such paydown or reduction) does not exceed 0.50:1.00 and 1.00:1.00, respectively, less than the First Lien Leverage Ratio on the Closing Date,
     
  (iii) at the option of the Borrower, the amount of such Excess Cash Flow prepayment shall be reduced on a dollar-for-dollar basis by the amount of (x) (A) voluntary prepayments of any Term Loan, any Incremental Term Facility, any Incremental Equivalent Debt, any Refinancing Facility, any Refinancing Notes, any indebtedness incurred under the Ratio Debt Basket, and/or any other indebtedness, in each case, that is secured on a pari passu basis with the Term Loans and (B) voluntary prepayments of the ABL Facility (to the extent accompanied by a permanent reduction of the corresponding commitment) and (y) any reduction in the outstanding principal amount of any Term Loan, any Incremental Term Facility, any Incremental Equivalent Debt, any Refinancing Facility, any Refinancing Notes, any indebtedness incurred under the Ratio Debt Basket, and/or any other indebtedness, in each case, that is secured on a pari passu basis with the Term Loans resulting from assignments to (and purchases by) the Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary (including loan buy-backs pursuant to Dutch auctions offered to all Lenders of the applicable class on a pro rata basis or open-market purchases permitted under the paragraph below entitled “Assignments and Participations”), in each case to the extent of the amount of cash paid by the Borrower or any such Restricted Subsidiary in connection with the relevant assignments and purchases in each case of clauses (x) and (y), (i) except to the extent financed with long-term indebtedness and (ii) without duplication in any other Excess Cash Flow period, made during such fiscal year or after  year-end and prior to any Excess Cash Flow prepayment date, and

 

 Term Sheet – Term Facility 
   
 Exhibit B – Page 14 

 

 

  (iv) Excess Cash Flow shall be reduced by amounts used for capital expenditures, acquisitions and certain other investments (including investments in joint ventures), certain repayments and prepayments of long-term indebtedness (without duplication of amounts referenced in clause (iii) above), and certain restricted payments made during such fiscal year, and, at the option of the Borrower, made prior to the date of such Excess Cash Flow prepayment or (except with respect to restricted payments) contractually committed to be made during such fiscal year or prior to the date of such Excess Cash Flow prepayment (without duplication in any other Excess Cash Flow period and except to the extent financed with long-term indebtedness); provided that if the amount of cash (not financed with indebtedness) actually utilized during the four fiscal quarters following such fiscal year is less than the committed amount, the difference shall be deducted from Excess Cash Flow for the succeeding fiscal year.

 

  Mandatory prepayments of the Term Loans shall be applied to the installments thereof as directed by the Borrower (or, in the absence of direction from the Borrower, in the direct order of maturity); provided, that the Credit Documentation will provide that, in the case of any mandatory prepayment in respect of any asset sale or casualty or condemnation event, the Borrower may apply the net cash proceeds thereof ratably to the payment of the Term Loans and any other indebtedness that is secured on a pari passu basis with the Term Loans.

 Exhibit B – Page 15 

 

 

  All mandatory prepayments described under clauses (b) and (c) above, to the extent attributable to Foreign Subsidiaries, will be subject to permissibility under local law (e.g., financial assistance, corporate benefit, thin capitalization, capital maintenance and similar legal principles, restrictions on upstreaming of cash intra group and the fiduciary and statutory duties of the directors of the relevant subsidiaries); provided that the Borrower shall use commercially reasonable efforts to take all actions required by applicable law to permit the repatriation of the relevant amounts.  Further, if the Borrower determines in good faith that the Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary would incur an adverse tax liability that is not de minimis (including any withholding tax) if all or a portion of the funds required to make a mandatory prepayment were upstreamed or transferred as a distribution or dividend (a “Restricted Amount”), the amount the Borrower will be required to mandatorily prepay shall be reduced by the Restricted Amount until such time as it may upstream or transfer such Restricted Amount, to the extent available, without incurring such tax liability. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, in each case, any such prepayment shall no longer be required to be made with respect to any such amounts that, after the use of such commercially reasonable efforts, have not been repatriated prior to the date that is one year after the date the original prepayment was required to be made.
   
  Any Lender (each a “Declining Lender”) may elect not to accept any mandatory prepayment, but in the case of clause (a) above, solely to the extent not representing a refinancing of the Term Loans.  Any prepayment amount declined by a Declining Lender (such declined payment, the “Declined Proceeds”) shall be an addition to the Available Basket (as defined below).
   
Collateral: Subject to the Limited Conditionality Provision and the provisions of the immediately following paragraphs, the Borrower Obligations with respect to the Term Facility and the obligations of each other Loan Party under the Term Guaranty shall be secured by (a) a perfected, first-priority security interest in (i) all of the stock (or other ownership interests) in, and held by, each Loan Party (which, in the case of equity interests held by a Loan Party in any CFC or any CFC Holdco, shall be limited to 65% of the voting stock of such CFC or CFC Holdco (and none of the equity interests of any subsidiary thereof)), (ii) intellectual property of the Loan Parties, (iii) owned real property, leased real property, any plants, equipment, machinery, related fixtures and rolling stock and (iv) all other tangible and intangible assets of the Loan Parties to the extent not constituting ABL Priority Collateral (as defined below) and all proceeds of the foregoing (the collateral described in this clause (a), the “Term Priority Collateral”); and (b) a perfected second-priority security interest (subject to permitted liens and other exceptions set forth in the ABL Facility documentation) in each Loan Party’s now owned or hereafter acquired personal property consisting of cash, accounts receivable, books and records, chattel paper, deposit, securities and operating accounts (and all cash, checks and other negotiable instruments, funds and other evidences of payment held therein, but other than the accounts in which net cash proceeds from the sale of Term Priority Collateral are deposited pending reinvestment, which accounts are subject to a first-priority lien in favor of the Agent), inventory and all documents, instruments, and general intangibles related to any of the foregoing of the Loan Parties now owned and hereafter acquired, and all proceeds and products thereof (the collateral described in this clause (b), the “ABL Priority Collateral” and, together with the Term Priority Collateral, the “Collateral”), in each case, subject to permitted liens and to certain customary exceptions and excluding Excluded Assets (as defined below).

  (h) any “intent-to-use” trademark application prior to the filing of a “Statement of Use”, “Declaration of Use”, “Amendment to Allege Use” or similar notice with respect thereto, to the extent, if any, that, and solely during the period, if any, in which, the grant of a security interest therein would impair the validity or enforceability of such intent-to-use trademark application under applicable law,

  Applicable Margin” means (a) 3.50% in the case of ABR Loans and (b) 4.50% in the case of Eurodollar Loans.

Rate Basis: All per annum rates shall be calculated on the basis of a year of 360 days for actual days elapsed (or 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, in the case of ABR Loans based on the “prime rate”).
   
LIBOR Replacement: If the Agent determines that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for determining the interest rate applicable to Eurodollar Loans (including because the London interbank offered rate component of the Eurodollar Rate (“LIBOR”) is not published on a current basis or is otherwise not available), and that such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary, or if the supervisor for the administrator of LIBOR (or a governmental authority having jurisdiction over the Agent) has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which LIBOR shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans, then the Agent and the Borrower shall agree on an alternate rate of interest to LIBOR subject to LIBOR replacement provisions to be agreed and to be set forth in the Credit Documentation.
