Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
1) Amendment No. 2 to Second Amended and Restated Credit and Guaranty Agreement
On July 31, 2019, certain of our subsidiaries entered into Amendment No. 2 to Second Amended and Restated Credit and Guaranty Agreement (the “Amendment”). The Amendment provides for the incurrence of an incremental term loan credit facility of $250 million (the “Incremental Term Loan Facility”), which is in addition to the existing $440 million revolving credit facility provided thereunder (the “Existing Revolving Credit Facility” and, together with the Incremental Term Loan Facility, the “Corporate Credit Facility”). The Incremental Term Loan Facility has a three-year term and will not amortize. The Incremental Term Loan Facility is secured by the same collateral as the Existing Revolving Credit Facility on a pari passu basis, which consists of pledges of the capital stock and ownership interests in certain of our holding company subsidiaries, in addition to other customary collateral. The Incremental Term Loan Facility shall be subject to the covenants, prepayment provisions and events of default set forth in the Existing Revolving Credit Facility. The proceeds of the Incremental Term Loan Facility will be used for general corporate purposes, including in part to repay outstanding loans under the Existing Revolving Credit Facility and in part to acquire certain renewable assets.
Interest Rate and Fees
The loans under the Incremental Term Loan Facility are base rate loans or Eurodollar rate loans, denominated in U.S. dollars. The base rate loans accrue interest at the fluctuating rate per annum equal to the greatest of the (i) the U.S. dollar prime rate, (ii) the federal funds rate plus 0.50% and (iii) the Eurodollar rate that would be in effect for a Eurodollar rate loan with an interest period of one month plus 1.0%, plus an applicable margin ranging from 0.175% to 0.425% (corresponding to applicable leverage ratios of the borrowers). The Eurodollar rate loans accrue interest at a rate per annum equal to LIBOR, as published by Reuters plus an applicable margin ranging from 1.175% to 1.425% (corresponding to applicable leverage ratios of the borrowers).
Maintenance Covenants
Our Corporate Credit Facility requires the subsidiary borrowers to maintain a leverage ratio (the ratio of borrower debt to borrower cash flow) that does not exceed 5.50:1.00 and an interest coverage ratio (the ratio of borrower cash flow to borrower interest expense) that is not less than 1.75:1.00.
Distribution Conditions
Certain of our subsidiaries are subject to usual and customary affirmative and negative covenants under the Corporate Credit Facility. Specifically, with limited exceptions, such subsidiaries are prohibited from distributing funds to us unless the following conditions are met: (i) no event of default under the Corporate Credit Facility has occurred and is continuing or would be caused by such distribution and (ii) the Corporate Credit Facility borrowers are in compliance with the leverage ratio test and the interest coverage ratio test, both before and after giving effect to such declaration.
Prepayments, Certain Covenants and Events of Default
Our Corporate Credit Facility also has customary covenants, prepayment provisions and events of default.
2) Belle River and North Kent Purchase and Sale Agreements
On August 2, 2019, we and Vertuous Energy Trust (“Vertuous Trust”) (a trust wholly owned by the Public Sector Pension Investment Board (“PSP Investments”)) entered into and consummated a Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “Belle River PSA”) with Pattern Energy Group LP (“Pattern Development 1.0”). PSP Investments holds approximately 9.5% of our outstanding Class A common stock.
On August 2, 2019, we also entered into and consummated a Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “North Kent PSA”) with Pattern Development 1.0.





Pursuant to the Belle River PSA, Pattern Canada Finance Company ULC (“Pattern Canada”) (a wholly owned subsidiary of us) purchased from affiliates of Pattern Development 1.0 a 50.99% limited partner interest in Belle River LP Holdings LP (“Belle River LP Holdings”) (which owns a 42.49% limited partnership interest in SP Belle River Wind LP (the “Belle River Project Company”)) and 70% of the issued and outstanding shares of Pattern Belle River GP Holdings Inc. (“Belle River GP Holdings”) (which holds a 0.02% general partner interest in Belle River LP Holdings) in exchange for aggregate consideration of CAD$23 million. Concurrently, Vertuous Trust purchased from affiliates of Pattern Development 1.0 a 48.99% limited partner interest in Belle River LP Holdings and 30% of the issued and outstanding shares of Belle River GP Holdings in exchange for aggregate consideration of CAD$26 million.
The Belle River Project Company operates the approximately 100 megawatt wind farm located in Essex County, Ontario, approximately 15 kilometers east of Windsor, Ontario, which achieved commercial operations in September 2017. Immediately after the closing, our owned capacity with respect to the wind farm will be approximately 22 megawatts.
Pursuant to the North Kent PSA, Pattern Canada purchased from affiliates of Pattern Development 1.0 99.98% of the limited partner interests in North Kent Wind 1 LP Holdings LP (“North Kent LP Holdings”) (which owns a 34.99% limited partnership interest in North Kent Wind 1 LP (the “North Kent Project Company”)) and 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Pattern North Kent Wind 1 GP Holdings Inc. (“North Kent GP Holdings”) (which holds a 0.02% general partner interest in North Kent LP Holdings) in exchange for aggregate consideration of CAD$35 million.
The North Kent Project Company operates the approximately 100 megawatt wind farm located in the municipality of Chatham-Kent, about six kilometers north-northwest of the town of Chatham-Kent, Ontario, which achieved commercial operations in February 2018. Immediately after the closing, the Company’s owned capacity with respect to the wind farm was approximately 35 megawatts.
Each of the Belle River PSA and the North Kent PSA, respectively, included customary representations by the parties thereto, including as to due authorization, non-contravention, governmental consents and approvals, enforceability, ownership and title, no litigation or adverse claims and, in the case of the seller, certain matters with respect to the underlying wind farm. Each of the Belle River PSA and the North Kent PSA, respectively, provided for customary indemnification by the parties thereto, for breaches of representations or covenants, which indemnification is subject to customary limitations including, among other things, a cap and time limits.
Our Board of Directors delegated the authority to approve the form of each of the Belle River PSA and the North Kent PSA to the Conflicts Committee of the Board of Directors, which is comprised solely of independent directors. The Conflicts Committee of the Board of Directors approved such forms and the transactions contemplated thereby.
3) Amended and Restated Limited Partnership Agreement and Unanimous Shareholder Agreement relating to the Belle River PSA
In connection with the consummation of the Belle River PSA, Pattern Canada entered into (1) an Amended and Restated Limited Partnership Agreement with Vertuous Trust and Belle River GP Holdings dated August 2, 2019 (the “Limited Partnership Agreement”) and (2) a Unanimous Shareholders Agreement with Vertuous Trust and Belle River GP Holdings dated August 2, 2019 (the “Shareholders Agreement”).
Belle River GP Holdings is the general partner of Belle River LP Holdings. The Limited Partnership Agreement sets forth provisions relating to governing the affairs of Belle River LP Holdings, including with respect to (among other things) the rights, powers, duties and obligations of the general partner; capital contributions; financing of Belle River LP Holdings; transfers and dispositions by a limited partner of Belle River LP Holdings; and allocations of profits and losses.
The Shareholders Agreement sets forth provisions agreed to between Pattern Canada and Vertuous Trust, as the shareholders of Belle River GP Holdings, relating to governing the affairs of Belle River GP Holdings, including with respect to (among other things) corporate affairs; management and approvals; the project operating budget, capital calls and distributions; transfers and dispositions of shares; and books and records of Belle River GP Holdings.
Our Board of Directors delegated the authority to approve the forms of the Limited Partnership Agreement and the Shareholders Agreement to the Conflicts Committee of the Board of Directors, which is comprised solely of independent directors. The Conflicts Committee of the Board of Directors approved the forms of the Limited Partnership Agreement and the Shareholders Agreement.
The foregoing descriptions of each agreement under this Item 1.01 do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to each of such agreements which are included as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K.





Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On August 6, 2019, we issued a press release announcing our financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019. A copy of our press release is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
Our press release, included herein, makes reference to non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, which management believes are useful for investors by offering the ability to better evaluate operating performance and to better understand how management evaluates the business. These non-U.S. GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with, and should not be considered in isolation of, or as an alternative to, measurements required by U.S. GAAP. Descriptions of the non-U.S. GAAP financial measures are discussed below.
We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before net interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation, amortization and accretion, including our proportionate share of net income (loss) before interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation, amortization and accretion of unconsolidated investments. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes the effect of certain mark-to-market adjustments, gain or loss related to acquisitions, divestitures, or refinancing transactions, adjustments from unconsolidated investments, and infrequent items not related to normal or ongoing operations. In calculating Adjusted EBITDA, we exclude mark-to-market adjustments to the value of our derivatives because we believe that it is useful for investors to understand, as a supplement to net income (loss) and other traditional measures of operating results, the results of our operations without regard to periodic, and sometimes material, fluctuations in the market value of such assets or liabilities.
Adjustments from unconsolidated investments represent distributions received in excess of the carrying amount of our investment and suspended equity earnings or losses, during periods of suspension of recognition of equity method earnings. When we receive distributions in excess of the carrying value of its investment, and we are not liable for the obligations of the investee nor otherwise committed to provide financial support we will: 1) suspend recognition of equity method earnings (losses), 2) record such excess distributions as earnings (loss) in unconsolidated investments, net in the period the distributions occur; and 3) suspend equity in earnings (losses) or equity in other comprehensive income of unconsolidated investments, if applicable.
Management believes Adjusted EBITDA assists investors and analysts in comparing our operating performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that our management believes are not indicative of our core operating performance and to compare our business to that of our peers. Using Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-U.S. GAAP measure, enables our management to evaluate our operating performance, our ability to meet debt service and other capital obligations and to measure the effectiveness of our overall capital structure. The most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure to Adjusted EBITDA is net income (loss).
However, Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool. Some of these limitations include:
Adjusted EBITDA
does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
does not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt, or our proportional interest in the interest expense of our unconsolidated investments or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on the debt borne by our unconsolidated investments;
does not reflect our income taxes or the cash requirement to pay our taxes; or our proportional interest in income taxes of our unconsolidated investments or the cash requirements necessary to pay the taxes of our unconsolidated investments;
does not reflect depreciation, amortization and accretion which are non-cash charges; or our proportional interest in depreciation, amortization and accretion of our unconsolidated investments. The assets being depreciated, amortized and accreted will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
does not reflect the effect of certain mark-to-market adjustments and non-recurring items or our proportional interest in the mark-to-market adjustments at our unconsolidated investments.





We do not have control, nor have any legal claim to the portion of the unconsolidated investees' revenues and expenses allocable to our joint venture partners. As we do not control, but do exercise significant influence, we account for the unconsolidated investments in accordance with the equity method of accounting. Net earnings from these investments are reflected within our consolidated statements of operations in "Earnings in unconsolidated investments, net." Adjustments related to our proportionate share from unconsolidated investments include only our proportionate amounts of interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and accretion, and mark-to-market adjustments included in "Earnings in unconsolidated investments, net;" and
Other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.
Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. You should not consider Adjusted EBITDA as an alternative to net income (loss), as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
We define cash available for distribution as Adjusted EBITDA further adjusted to (i) subtract unconsolidated investment earnings, (ii) subtract interest expense, less non-cash items, (iii) subtract distributions to noncontrolling interests, (iv) subtract principal payments paid from operating cash flows, (v) subtract current income taxes, (vi) subtract non-expansionary capital expenditures, (vii) add distributions from unconsolidated investments, (viii) add net release of restricted cash, (ix) add stock-based compensation, (x) add pay-go contributions, and (xi) add or subtract other items as necessary to present the cash flows we deem representative of our core business operations.
Management believes that cash available for distribution is indicative of our core operating performance. For the periods presented, we reconcile Adjusted EBITDA and cash available for distribution to net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Cash available for distribution is a supplemental performance measure used by management and external users of our financial statements to measure our performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that our management believes are not indicative of our core operating performance and to compare our business to that of our peers. Cash available for distribution serves as an important measure of our performance and enables our management to evaluate our ability to meet dividend expectations, the amount of internal capital available for new investment opportunities that can enhance our ability to grow our dividends over time, and the suitability of our corporate debt levels.
However, cash available for distribution has limitations as an analytical tool. Some of the limitations are:

Cash available for distribution:
excludes depreciation, amortization and accretion;
does not capture the level of capital expenditures necessary to maintain the operating performance of our projects or complete the construction of acquired projects;
is not reduced for principal payments on our project indebtedness except to the extent they are paid from operating cash flows during a period; and
excludes the effect of certain other cash flow items, all of which could have a material effect on our financial condition and results from operations.
Other companies in our industry may calculate cash available for distribution differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.
Because of these limitations, cash available for distribution should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. You should not consider cash available for distribution as an alternative to net income (loss), determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, nor does it represent funds actually available to fund our current dividend commitments.

In the event Borrowers fail to specify an Interest Period for any Eurodollar Rate Loan or CDOR Loan in the applicable Borrowing Notice And Certificate or Conversion/Continuation Notice, Borrowers shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one (1) month. Administrative Agent shall promptly notify Borrowers and the Lenders of the interest rate applicable to any Interest Period for Eurodollar Rate Loans or CDOR Loans upon determination of such interest rate. At any time that Base Rate Loans or Canadian Prime Rate Loans are outstanding, Administrative Agent shall notify Borrowers and the Lenders of any change in Administrative Agent’s prime rate used in determining the Base Rate or Canadian Prime Rate promptly following the public announcement of such change.
(d)    Interest payable pursuant to Section 2.7(a) shall be computed (i) in the case of CDOR Loans and in the case of Base Rate Loans or Canadian Prime Rate Loans bearing interest at a rate determined by reference to a Base Rate or Canadian Prime Rate (as applicable) calculated pursuant to clause (a) of the definition of Base Rate or Canadian Prime Rate (as applicable), on the basis of a 365- day or 366-day year, as the case may be, and (ii) in the case of all other Base Rate Loans, Canadian Prime Rate Loans and Eurodollar Rate Loans, on the basis of a 360-day year, in each case for the actual number of days elapsed in the period during which it accrues.

(e)     Except as otherwise set forth herein, interest on each Revolving Loan and Incremental Term Loan (i) shall accrue on a daily basis and shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date with respect to interest accrued on and to each such payment date; (ii) shall accrue on a daily basis and shall be payable in arrears upon any prepayment of that Revolving Loan or Incremental Term Loan, as applicable, whether voluntary or mandatory, to the extent accrued on the amount being prepaid; and (iii) shall accrue on a daily basis and shall be payable in arrears at maturity of the Revolving Loans or Incremental Term Loans, as applicable, including final maturity of the Revolving Loans or Incremental Term Loans, as applicable.
(f)    US Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent (for the benefit of each LC Issuing Bank), with respect to drawings honored under any Letter of Credit issued by an LC Issuing Bank, interest on the amount paid by such LC Issuing Bank in respect of each such honored drawing, at a rate equal to (i) for the period from the Honor Date to but excluding the Reimbursement Date, the rate of interest otherwise payable hereunder with respect to Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans or Canadian Prime Rate Loans, and (ii) thereafter, the Default Rate in respect of any Unreimbursed Amounts that have not been refinanced in accordance with Section 2.3(c)(i). For the period of time between the Honor Date and the Reimbursement Date (or such later date such amount is reimbursed on behalf of US Borrower), the interest accruing on such amounts will be for the account of the applicable LC Issuing Bank until reimbursed for all amounts other than the LC Issuing Bank’s Pro Rata Share thereof.
(g)    Interest payable pursuant to Sections 2.7(f) shall be computed on the basis of a 365/366-day year for the actual number of days elapsed in the period during which it accrues, and shall be payable on demand or, if no demand is made, on the date on which the related drawing under a Letter of Credit is reimbursed in full. Promptly upon receipt by the Administrative Agent of any payment of interest pursuant to Section 2.7(f), the Administrative Agent shall distribute to each Revolving Lender, out of the interest received by the Administrative Agent in respect of the period from the date such drawing is honored to but excluding the date on which the applicable LC Issuing Bank is reimbursed for the amount of such drawing (including any such reimbursement out of the proceeds of any Revolving Loans), the amount that such Revolving Lender would have been entitled to receive in respect of the Letter of Credit Fees that would have been payable in respect of such Letter of Credit for such period if no drawing had been honored under such Letter of Credit.
(h)    Canada Interest Act. For the purposes of the Interest Act (Canada) and disclosure under such act, whenever interest to be paid under this Agreement is to be calculated on the basis of a year of 360 or 365 days or any other period of time that is less than a calendar year, the yearly rate of interest to which the rate used pursuant to such calculation is equivalent is the rate so used multiplied by the actual number of days in the calendar year in which the same is to be ascertained and divided by either 360 or 365 or such other period of time, as the case may be.
2.8    Conversion/Continuation

(ii)    upon the expiration of any Interest Period applicable to any Eurodollar Rate Loan or CDOR Loan, to continue all or any portion of such Revolving Loan or Incremental Term Loan in a minimum amount equal to five hundred thousand Dollars ($500,000) or Canadian Dollars (CAD $500,000) and integral multiples of fifty thousand Dollars ($50,000) or Canadian Dollars (CAD $50,000) in excess of that amount or, if different, the entire amount of the Revolving Loan or Incremental Term Loan being continued, as a Eurodollar Rate Loan or CDOR Loan.;

A Conversion/Continuation Notice for conversion to, or continuation of, any Eurodollar Rate Loan or CDOR Loan (or telephonic notice in lieu thereof) shall be revocable on and after the related Interest Rate Determination Date; provided that the applicable Borrower shall be bound to effect a conversion or continuation in accordance therewith unless such Borrower compensates Lenders in accordance with Section 2.16(c).

If at any time insufficient funds are received by and available to the Administrative Agent to pay fully all amounts of principal, interest, fees, costs and expenses then due hereunder, such funds shall be applied (i) first, towards payment of interest, fees costs and expenses then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of interest and fees then due to such parties, and (ii) second, towards payment of principal then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of principal then due to such parties.
(e)    Administrative Agent (or its agent or sub-agent appointed by it) shall promptly distribute to each Lender at such address as such Lender shall indicate in writing, such Lender’s applicable share of all payments and prepayments of principal and interest due hereunder, together with all other amounts due thereto, including all fees payable with respect thereto, to the extent received by Administrative Agent, pro rata in accordance with the amounts thereof then due and payable.
(f)    Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions hereof, if any Conversion/Continuation Notice is withdrawn as to any Affected Lender or if any Affected Lender makes Base Rate Loans or Canadian Prime Rate Loans in lieu of its Pro Rata Share of any Eurodollar Rate Loans or CDOR Loans (as applicable), Administrative Agent shall give effect thereto in apportioning payments received thereafter.

Due to such other Lender, then the Lender receiving such proportionately greater payment shall (a) notify Administrative Agent and each other Lender of the receipt of such payment and (b) apply a portion of such payment to purchase participations (which it shall be deemed to have purchased from each seller of a participation simultaneously upon the receipt by such seller of its portion of such payment) in the Aggregate Amounts Due to the other Lenders so that all such recoveries of Aggregate Amounts Due shall be shared by all Lenders in proportion to the Aggregate Amounts Due to them; provided, if all or part of such proportionately greater payment received by such purchasing Lender is thereafter recovered from such Lender upon the bankruptcy or reorganization of Borrowers or otherwise, those purchases shall be rescinded and the purchase prices paid for such participations shall be returned to such purchasing Lender ratably to the extent of such recovery, but without interest. Borrowers expressly consent to the foregoing arrangement and agree that any holder of a participation so purchased may exercise any and all rights of banker’s lien, set-off or counterclaim with respect to any and all monies owing by Borrowers to that holder with respect thereto as fully as if that holder were owed the amount of the participation held by that holder.

2.16    Making or Maintaining Eurodollar Rate Loans or CDOR Loans
(a)    Inability to Determine Applicable Interest Rate. In
(i)    With respect to any Revolving Loans or Revolving Commitments:
(1)     in the event that Administrative Agent (upon the written instruction of the Required Lenders) shall have determined in good faith (which determination shall be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto), on any Interest Rate Determination Date with respect to any Eurodollar Rate Loans or CDOR Loans, that (1) by reason of circumstances affecting the applicable interbank market adequate and fair means do not exist for ascertaining the interest rate applicable to such Loans on the basis provided for in the definition of Eurodollar Rate or CDOR Rate or (2) deposits are not being offered to banks in the applicable offshore interbank market for such currency for the applicable amount and Interest Period of such Eurodollar Rate Loan or CDOR Loan, Administrative Agent shall on such date give notice (by facsimile or by telephone confirmed in writing) to Borrowers and each Lender of such determination, whereupon (i) (x) no Loans may be made as, or converted to, Eurodollar Rate Loans or CDOR Loans and (ii) (y) in the event of a determination with respect to the Eurodollar Rate component of the Base Rate or the CDOR Rate component of the Canadian Prime Rate, the utilization of the Eurodollar Rate or CDOR Rate component in determining the Base Rate or Canadian Prime Rate shall be

CREDIT AGREEMENT (PATTERN REVOLVER)



suspended, in each case until Administrative Agent (upon the written instruction of the Required Lenders) revokes such notice. Upon receipt of such notice, Borrowers may revoke any pending Borrowing Notice And Certificate or Conversion/Continuation Notice of Eurodollar Rate Loans or CDOR Loans in the affected currency or currencies or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for a borrowing of Base Rate Loans or Canadian Prime Rate Loans in the amount specified therein.; and
(2)    if at any time the Required Revolving Lenders determine (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that the Eurodollar Rate shall cease to exist, then the Required Revolving Lenders and the Borrower shall endeavor to establish an alternate rate of interest to the Eurodollar Rate that gives due consideration to the then prevailing market convention for determining a rate of interest for syndicated loans in the United States at such time, and shall enter into an amendment to this Agreement to reflect such alternate rate of interest and such other related changes to this Agreement as may be applicable.
(ii)    With respect to any 2019 Incremental Term Loans:
(1)    if prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a Eurodollar Rate Loan:
a.    by reason of circumstances affecting the applicable interbank market adequate and fair means do not exist for ascertaining the interest rate applicable to such Loans on the basis provided for in the definition of Eurodollar Rate; or
b.    deposits are not being offered to banks in the applicable offshore interbank market for such currency for the applicable amount and Interest Period of such Eurodollar Rate Loan,
then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Borrowers and the 2019 Incremental Term Loan Lenders by telephone, telecopy or electronic mail as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrowers and the 2019 Incremental Term Loan Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, any Conversion/Continuation Notice that requests the conversion of any Loan to, or continuation of any Loan as, a Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be ineffective, and, such Borrowing (unless prepaid) shall be continued as, or converted to, a Base Rate Loan; provided that (x) if the circumstances giving rise to such notice do not affect all the 2019 Incremental Term Loan Lenders, then requests by the Borrowers for Eurodollar Rate Loans may be made to 2019 Incremental Term Loan Lenders that are not affected thereby and (y) if the

-82-

circumstances giving rise to such notice affect only one Type of Loan, then the other Type of Loan shall be permitted.
(2)    if the Administrative Agent (i) determines that the circumstances described in clauses (a)(ii)(1)(a) or (a)(ii)(1)(b) of this Section 2.16 have arisen and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary, (ii) determines that the circumstances described in clauses (a)(ii)(1)(a) or (a)(ii)(1)(b) of this Section 2.16 have not arisen but the supervisor for the administrator of the Eurodollar Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the Eurodollar Rate shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans or (iii) new syndicated loans have started to adopt a new benchmark interest rate, then the Administrative Agent and the Borrowers shall endeavor to establish an alternate rate of interest to the Eurodollar Rate that gives due consideration to the then prevailing market convention for determining a rate of interest for syndicated loans in the United States at such time, and shall enter into an amendment to this Agreement to reflect such alternate rate of interest and such other related changes (including administrative changes) to this Agreement as may be applicable; provided that to the extent that the Administrative Agent determines that adoption of any portion of such market convention is not administratively feasible or that no market convention for the administration of such alternate rate of interest exists, the Administrative Agent shall administer such alternate rate of interest in a manner determined by the Administrative Agent in consultation with the Borrowers. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 10.5, such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other 2019 Incremental Term Loan Lender so long as the Administrative Agent shall not have received, within five (5) Business Days of the date notice of such alternate rate of interest is provided to the 2019 Incremental Term Loan Lenders, a written notice from the Required 2019 Incremental Term Loan Lenders stating that such Required 2019 Incremental Term Loan Lenders object to such amendment. If a notice of an alternate rate of interest has been given and no such alternate rate of interest has been determined, and (x) the circumstances under clause (i) or (iii) above exist or (y) the specific date referred to in clause (ii) has occurred (as applicable), the Base Rate shall apply without regard to clause (iii) of the definition thereof; provided that, if such alternate rate of interest shall be less than zero, such rate shall be deemed to be zero for the purposes of this Agreement.
(b)    Illegality or Impracticability of Eurodollar Rate Loans or CDOR Loans. In the event that on any date any Lender shall have determined in good faith (which determination shall be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto but shall be made only after consultation with Borrowers and Administrative Agent) that the making, maintaining or

continuation of its Eurodollar Rate Loans or CDOR Loans (i) has become unlawful as a result of compliance by such Lender in good faith with any Governmental Rule (or would conflict with

borrowing, or a conversion to or continuation of any Eurodollar Rate Loan or CDOR Loan does not occur on a date specified therefor in a Conversion/Continuation Notice or a telephonic request for conversion or continuation; (ii) if any prepayment or other principal payment under Sections 2.11 or 2.12 of, or any conversion of, any of its Eurodollar Rate Loans or CDOR Loans occurs on a date prior to the last day of an Interest Period applicable to that Loan; (iii) if any prepayment of any of its Eurodollar Rate Loans or CDOR Loans is not made on any date specified in a notice of prepayment given by Borrowers; and (iv) if an assignment of any Loan by a Terminated Lender pursuant to Section 2.16(c) occurs on a date prior to the last day of an Interest Period applicable to that Loan.
(d)    Assumptions Concerning Funding of Eurodollar Rate Loans or CDOR Loans. Calculation of all amounts payable to a Lender under Section 2.16(c) shall be made as though such Lender had actually funded each of its relevant Eurodollar Rate Loans or CDOR Loans through the purchase of a Eurodollar deposit bearing interest at the rate obtained pursuant to clause (i) of the definition of Eurodollar Rate or CDOR Rate in an amount equal to the amount of such Eurodollar Rate Loan or CDOR Loan and having a maturity comparable to the relevant Interest Period and through the transfer of such Eurodollar deposit or CDOR deposit from an offshore office of such Lender to a domestic office of such Lender in the United States of America; provided, however, each Lender may fund each of its Eurodollar Rate Loans or CDOR Loans in any manner it sees fit and the foregoing assumptions shall be utilized only for the purposes of calculating amounts payable under Section 2.16(c).
2.17    Increased Costs; Capital or Liquidity Adequacy
(a)    Compensation For Increased Costs and Taxes. Subject to the provisions of Section 2.18 (which shall be controlling with respect to the matters covered thereby), in the event that any Lender (which term shall include each LC Issuing Bank for purposes of this Section 2.17(a)) shall determine that any Change in Law: (i) subjects such Lender (or its applicable lending office) to any additional Tax (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and (C) Connection Income Taxes) with respect to this Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents or any of its obligations hereunder or thereunder or any payments to such Lender (or its applicable lending office) of principal, interest, fees or any other amount payable hereunder; (ii) imposes, modifies or holds applicable any reserve (including any marginal, emergency, supplemental, special or other reserve), special deposit, compulsory loan, FDIC insurance or similar requirement against assets held by, or deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, or advances or loans by, or other credit extended by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of such Lender, or (iii) imposes any other condition, cost or expense (other than with respect to Taxes) on or affecting such Lender (or its applicable lending office) or its obligations hereunder or the applicable interbank market; and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender of agreeing to make, making, continuing, converting into or maintaining Revolving Loans hereunder or to reduce any amount received or receivable by such Lender (or its applicable lending office) with respect thereto; then each Borrower shall promptly pay to such Lender, upon receipt of the statement referred to in the next sentence, such additional amount or amounts (in the form of an increased rate of, or a different method of calculating, interest

10.18    Usury Savings Clause.
(a)    Notwithstanding any other provision herein, the aggregate interest rate charged with respect to any of the Obligations, including all charges or fees in connection therewith deemed in the nature of interest under applicable Governmental Rules shall not exceed the Highest Lawful Rate. If the rate of interest (determined without regard to the preceding sentence) under this Agreement at any time exceeds the Highest Lawful Rate, the outstanding amount of the Revolving Loans made hereunder shall bear interest at the Highest Lawful Rate until, to the extent permitted by Governmental Rules, the total amount of interest due hereunder equals the amount of interest which would have been due hereunder if the stated rates of interest set forth in this Agreement had at all times been in effect. In addition, if when the Revolving Loans made hereunder are repaid in full the total interest due hereunder (taking into account the increase provided for above) is less than the total amount of interest which would have been due hereunder if the stated rates of interest set forth in this Agreement had at all times been in effect, then to the extent permitted by

-169-
CREDIT AGREEMENT (PATTERN REVOLVER)



Governmental Rules, Borrowers shall pay to Administrative Agent an amount equal to the difference between the amount of interest paid and the amount of interest which would have been paid if the Highest Lawful Rate had at all times been in effect. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is the intention of Lenders and Borrowers to conform strictly to any applicable usury laws. Accordingly, if any Lender contracts for, charges, or receives any consideration which constitutes interest in excess of the Highest Lawful Rate, then any such excess shall be deemed to be adjusted to the Highest Lawful Rate as if such excess had never existed, cancelled automatically and, if previously paid, shall at such Lender’s option be applied to the outstanding amount of the Revolving Loans made hereunder or be refunded to Borrowers.
(b)    Canadian Usury. If any provision of this Agreement would obligate the Canada Borrower to make any payment of interest or other amount payable to any Lender domiciled in Canada in an amount or calculated at a rate which would be prohibited by law or would result in a receipt by that Lender of “interest” at a “criminal rate” (as such terms are construed under the Criminal Code (Canada)), then, notwithstanding such provision, such amount or rate shall be deemed to have been adjusted with retroactive effect to the maximum amount or rate of interest, as the case may be, as would not be so prohibited by law or so result in a receipt by such Lender domiciled in Canada of “interest” at a “criminal rate”, such adjustment to be effected, to the extent necessary (but only to the extent necessary), as follows: (i) first, by reducing the amount or rate of interest or the amount or rate of any Letter of Credit Fee required to be paid to the affected Lender under Section 2.10(b)(ii), and (ii) thereafter, by reducing any fees, commissions, premiums and other amounts required to be paid to the affected Lender which would constitute interest for purposes of Section 347 of the Criminal Code (Canada).
10.19    Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which when so executed and delivered shall be deemed an original, but all such counterparts together shall constitute but one and the same instrument. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Agreement by facsimile or in electronic format (i.e., “pdf” or “tif” shall be effective as delivery of an original executed counterpart of this Agreement.

In the event a QFC Covered Party or a BHC Act Affiliate of a QFC Covered Party becomes subject to a proceeding under a US Special Resolution Regime, Default Rights under the Credit Documents that might otherwise apply to such Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support that may be exercised against such QFC Covered Party are permitted to be exercised to no greater extent than such Default Rights could be exercised under the US Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and the Credit Documents were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States. Without limitation of the foregoing, it is understood and agreed that rights and remedies of the parties with respect to a Defaulting Lender shall in no event affect the rights of any QFC Covered Party with respect to a Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support.
