(h)    Section 2.11 of the Note Purchase Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:
“SECTION 2.11. [Reserved].”
(i)    Section 2.12 of the Note Purchase Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:
“SECTION 2.12. Benchmark Replacement Setting. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Transaction Document:
“(a) Replacing the Eurodollar Rate. On March 5, 2021 the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”), the regulatory supervisor of the Eurodollar Rate’s administrator (“IBA”) announced in a public statement the future cessation or loss of representativeness of overnight/Spot Next, 1-month, 3-month, 6-month and 12- month Eurodollar Rate tenor settings. On the earlier of (i) the date that all Available Tenors of the Eurodollar Rate have either permanently or indefinitely ceased to be provided by IBA or have been announced by the FCA pursuant to public statement or
8



publication of information to be no longer representative and (ii) the Early Opt-in Effective Date, if the then current Benchmark is the Eurodollar Rate, the Benchmark Replacement will replace such Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Transaction Document in respect of any setting of such Benchmark on such day and all subsequent settings without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement or any other Transaction Document. If the Benchmark Replacement is Daily Simple SOFR, all interest payments will be payable on a monthly basis.

(b) Replacing Future Benchmarks. Upon the earlier to occur of (i) a Benchmark Transition Event and (ii) an Early Opt-In Election, the Benchmark Replacement will replace the then-current Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Transaction Document in respect of any Benchmark setting at or after 5:00 p.m. on the fifth (5th) Business Day after the date notice of such Benchmark Replacement is provided to the Managing Agents without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Transaction Document so long as the Administrative Agent has not received, by such time, written notice of objection to such Benchmark Replacement from the Required Managing Agents. At any time that the administrator of the then-current Benchmark has permanently or indefinitely ceased to provide such Benchmark or such Benchmark has been announced by the regulatory supervisor for the administrator of such Benchmark pursuant to public statement or publication of information to be no longer representative of the underlying market and economic reality that such Benchmark is intended to measure and that representativeness will not be restored, the Issuer may revoke any request for a borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of any Tranche to be made, converted or continued that would bear interest by reference to such Benchmark until the Issuer’s receipt of notice from the Administrative Agent that a Benchmark Replacement has replaced such Benchmark, and, failing that, the Issuer will be deemed to have converted any such request into a request for a borrowing of or conversion to Base Rate Tranches. During the period referenced in the foregoing sentence, the component of Alternate Base Rate based upon the Benchmark will not be used in any determination of Alternate Base Rate.

(c) Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes. In connection with the implementation and administration of a Benchmark Replacement, the Administrative Agent will have the right to make Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Transaction Document, any amendments implementing such Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement.


9



(d) Notices; Standards for Decisions and Determinations. The Administrative Agent will promptly notify the Issuer and the Managing Agents of (i) the implementation of any Benchmark Replacement and (ii) the effectiveness of any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes. Any determination, decision or election that may be made by the Administrative Agent or, if applicable, any Managing Agent (or group of Managing Agents) pursuant to this Section 2.12, including any determination with respect to a tenor, rate or adjustment or of the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event, circumstance or date and any decision to take or refrain from taking any action, will be conclusive and binding absent manifest error and may be made in its or their sole discretion and without consent from any other party hereto, except, in each case, as expressly required pursuant to this Section 2.12.

(e) Unavailability of Tenor of Benchmark. At any time (including in connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement), (i) if the then-current Benchmark is a term rate (including Term SOFR or the Eurodollar Rate), then the Administrative Agent may remove any tenor of such Benchmark that is unavailable or non-representative for Benchmark (including Benchmark Replacement) settings and (ii) the Administrative Agent may reinstate any such previously removed tenor for Benchmark (including Benchmark Replacement) settings.

(f) Disclaimer of Liability. The Administrative Agent does not warrant or accept any responsibility for, and shall not have any liability with respect to, the administration of, submission of, calculation of or availability of or any other matter related to the rates in the definition of “Eurodollar Rate” or with respect to any alternative or successor rate thereto, or replacement rate thereof (including, without limitation, (i) any such alternative, successor or replacement rate implemented pursuant to this Agreement, whether upon the occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event or an Early Opt-in Election, and (ii) the effect, implementation or composition of any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes), including without limitation, whether the composition or characteristics of any such alternative, successor or replacement reference rate will be similar to, or produce the same value or economic equivalence of, the Eurodollar Rate or have the same volume or liquidity as the Eurodollar Rate prior to its discontinuance or unavailability.”


10



(j)    Article VI of the Note Purchase Agreement is hereby amended to add a new Section 6.10 as follows:
“SECTION 6.10. Erroneous Payments.
(a)     If the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee (x) notifies a Purchaser or a Managing Agent, or any Person who has received funds on behalf of a Purchaser or a Managing Agent (any such Purchaser, Managing Agent or other recipient (and each of their respective successors and permitted assigns), a “Payment Recipient”) that the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee has determined in its sole discretion (whether or not after receipt of any notice under immediately succeeding clause (b)) that any funds (as set forth in such notice from the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee) received by such Payment Recipient from the Administrative Agent, the Indenture Trustee or any of their respective Affiliates were erroneously or mistakenly transmitted to, or otherwise erroneously or mistakenly received by, such Payment Recipient (whether or not known to such Purchaser, Managing Agent or other Payment Recipient on its behalf) (any such funds, whether transmitted or received as a payment, prepayment or repayment of principal, interest, fees, distribution or otherwise, individually and collectively, an “Erroneous Payment”) and (y) demands in writing the return of such Erroneous Payment (or a portion thereof), such Erroneous Payment shall at all times remain the property of the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee, as applicable, pending its return or repayment as contemplated below in this Section 6.10 and held in trust for the benefit of the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee, as applicable, and such Purchaser or Managing Agent shall (or, with respect to any Payment Recipient who received such funds on its behalf, shall cause such Payment Recipient to) promptly, but in no event later than two Business Days thereafter (or such later date as the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee may, in its sole discretion, specify in writing), return to the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee, as applicable, the amount of any such Erroneous Payment (or portion thereof) as to which such a demand was made, in same day funds (in the currency so received), together with interest thereon (except to the extent waived in writing by the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee, as applicable) in respect of each day from and including the date such Erroneous Payment (or portion thereof) was received by such Payment Recipient to the date such amount is repaid to the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee in same day funds at the greater of the Federal Funds Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation from time to time in effect. A notice of the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee to any Payment Recipient under this clause (a) shall be conclusive, absent manifest error.

(ii)    such Purchaser or Managing Agent shall use (and shall cause any other recipient that receives funds on its respective behalf to) promptly (and, in all events, within one Business Day of its knowledge of the occurrence of any of the circumstances described in immediately preceding clauses (x), (y) and (z)) notify the Administrative Agent and the Indenture Trustee of its receipt of such payment, prepayment or repayment, the details thereof (in reasonable detail) and that it is so notifying the Administrative Agent and the Indenture Trustee pursuant to this Section 6.10(b).

For the avoidance of doubt, the failure to deliver a notice to the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee pursuant to this Section 6.10(b), shall not have any effect on any Payment Recipient’s obligations pursuant to Section 6.10(a) of this Agreement or on whether or not an Erroneous Payment has been made.

(c)     Each Purchaser or Managing Agent hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent and the Indenture Trustee to set off, net and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Purchaser or Managing Agent under any Transaction Document, or otherwise payable or distributable by the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee to such Purchaser or Managing Agent under any Transaction Document with respect to any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts, against any amount that the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee has demanded to be returned under immediately preceding clause (a).

(d)     The parties hereto agree that (x) irrespective of whether the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee may be equitably subrogated, in the event that an Erroneous Payment (or portion thereof) is not recovered from any Payment Recipient that has received such Erroneous Payment (or portion thereof) for any reason, the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee, as applicable, shall be subrogated to all the rights and interests of such Payment Recipient (and, in the case of or any Payment Recipient who has received funds on behalf of a Purchaser or Managing Agent, to the rights and interests of such Purchaser or Managing Agent, as the case may be) under the Transaction Documents with respect to such amount (the “Erroneous Payment Subrogation Rights”) and (y) an Erroneous Payment shall not pay, prepay, repay, discharge or otherwise satisfy any obligations owed by the Issuer; provided that this Section 6.10 shall not be interpreted to increase (or accelerate the due date for), or have the effect of increasing (or accelerating the due date for), the obligations of the Issuer relative to the amount (and/or timing for payment) of the obligations that would have been payable had such Erroneous Payment not been made by the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee; provided, further, that for the avoidance of doubt, immediately preceding clauses (x) and (y) shall not apply to the extent any such Erroneous Payment is, and solely with respect to the amount of such Erroneous Payment that is, comprised of funds received by the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee from the Issuer for the purpose of making such Erroneous Payment.

(e)     To the extent permitted by applicable law, no Payment Recipient shall assert any right or claim to an Erroneous Payment, and hereby waives, and is deemed to waive, any claim, counterclaim, defense or right of set-off or recoupment with respect to any demand, claim or counterclaim by the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee for the return of any Erroneous Payment received, including, without limitation, any defense based on “discharge for value” or any similar doctrine.

(f)     Each party’s obligations, agreements and waivers under this Section 6.10 shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Administrative Agent or the Indenture Trustee, any transfer of rights or obligations by, or the replacement of, a Purchaser or Managing Agent, the termination of the Commitments and/or the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations (or any portion thereof) under any Transaction Document.”
