(ii) the Administrative Agent may make any reasonable compromise or settlement deemed desirable with respect to any of the Collateral and may extend the time of payment, arrange for payment in installments, or otherwise modify the terms of, any of the Collateral;
(iii) the Administrative Agent may require the Grantors to notify (and each Grantor hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to so notify) each account debtor in respect of any Account, Chattel Paper or General Intangible, and each obligor on any Instrument, constituting part of the Collateral that such Collateral has been assigned to the Secured Parties hereunder, and to instruct that any payments due or to become due in respect of such Collateral shall be made directly to the Administrative Agent or as it may direct (and if any such payments, or any other Proceeds of Collateral, are received by any Grantor they shall be held in trust by such Grantor for the benefit of the Secured Parties and as promptly as possible remitted or delivered to the Administrative Agent for application as provided herein);
(iv) the Administrative Agent may require the Grantors to assemble the Collateral at such place or places, convenient to the Secured Parties and the Grantors, as the Administrative Agent may direct;
(v) the Administrative Agent may require the Grantors to cause the Pledged Shares to be transferred of record into the name of the Administrative Agent or its nominee (and the Administrative Agent agrees that if any of such Pledged Shares is transferred into its name or the name of its nominee, the Administrative Agent will thereafter promptly give to the respective Grantor copies of any notices and communications received by it with respect to such Pledged Shares); and
(vi) the Administrative Agent may sell, lease, assign or otherwise dispose of all or any part of the Collateral, at such place or places as the Administrative Agent deems best, and for cash or for credit or for future delivery (without thereby assuming any credit risk), at public or private sale, without demand of performance or notice of intention to effect any such disposition or of the time or place thereof (except such notice as is required by applicable statute and cannot be waived), and the Secured Parties, the Administrative Agent or anyone else may be the purchaser, lessee, assignee or recipient of any or all of the Collateral so disposed of at any public sale (or, to the extent permitted by law, at any private sale) and thereafter hold the same absolutely, free from any claim or right of whatsoever kind, including any right or equity of redemption (statutory or otherwise), of the Grantors, any such demand, notice and right or equity being hereby expressly waived and released. In the event of any sale, assignment, or other disposition of any of the Collateral consisting of Trademarks, the goodwill connected with and symbolized by the Trademarks subject to such disposition shall be included. The Administrative Agent may, without notice or publication, adjourn any public or private sale or cause the same to be adjourned from time to time by announcement at the time and place fixed for the sale, and such sale may be made at any time or place to which the sale may be so adjourned.
(vii) The Proceeds of each collection, sale or other disposition under this Section 4.05, including by virtue of the exercise of any license granted to the Administrative Agent in Section 4.04(b), shall be applied in accordance with Section 4.09.
(b) Certain Securities Act Limitations. The Grantors recognize that, by reason of certain prohibitions contained in the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and applicable state securities laws, the Administrative Agent may be compelled, with respect to any sale of all or any part of the Collateral, to limit purchasers to those who will agree, among other things, to acquire the Collateral for their own account, for investment and not with a view to the distribution or resale thereof. The Grantors acknowledge that any such private sales may be at prices and on terms less favorable to the Administrative Agent than those obtainable through a public sale without such restrictions, and, notwithstanding such circumstances, agree that any such private sale shall be deemed to have been made in a commercially reasonable manner and that the Administrative Agent shall have no obligation to engage in public sales and no obligation to delay the sale of any Collateral for the period of time necessary to permit the issuer thereof to register it for public sale.
(c) Notice. The Grantors agree that to the extent the Administrative Agent is required by applicable law to give reasonable prior notice of any sale or other disposition of any Collateral, ten business days’ notice shall be deemed to constitute reasonable prior notice.
Section 4.06 Deficiency. If the proceeds of sale, collection or other realization of or upon the Collateral pursuant to Section 4.05 are insufficient to cover the costs and expenses of such
realization and the indefeasible payment in full in cash of the Secured Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations for which no claim has been made), the Grantors shall remain liable for any deficiency.
Section 4.07 Locations; Names, Etc. No Grantor shall (i) change its location (as defined in Section 9-307 of the UCC), (ii) change its name from the name shown as its current legal name on Schedule 1, or (iii) agree to or authorize any modification of the terms of any item of Collateral that would result in a change thereof from one Uniform Commercial Code category to another such category (such as from a General Intangible to Investment Property), if the effect thereof would be to result in a loss of perfection of, or diminution of priority for, the security interests created hereunder in such item of Collateral, or the loss of control (within the meaning of Section 9-104, 9-105, 9-106 or 9-107 of the UCC) over such item of Collateral, unless in each case 30 days’ prior written notice has been provided to the Administrative Agent and such change is not otherwise restricted by the terms of any Loan Document.
Section 4.08 Private Sale. The Secured Parties shall incur no liability as a result of the sale of the Collateral, or any part thereof, at any private sale pursuant to Section 4.05 conducted in a commercially reasonable manner. Each Grantor hereby waives any claims against the Administrative Agent, the Secured Parties or any of them arising by reason of the fact that the price at which the Collateral may have been sold at such a private sale was less than the price that might have been obtained at a public sale or was less than the aggregate amount of the Secured Obligations, even if the Administrative Agent, the Secured Parties or any of them accepts the first offer received and does not offer the Collateral to more than one offeree.
Section 4.09 Application of Proceeds. Except as otherwise herein expressly provided and except as provided below in this Section 4.09, the Proceeds of any collection, sale or other realization of all or any part of the Collateral pursuant hereto, and any other cash at the time held by the Administrative Agent or the Secured Parties under this Article IV, shall be applied by the Administrative Agent or the Secured Parties (as the case may be):
First, to the payment of the costs and expenses of such collection, sale or other realization, including reasonable out of pocket costs and expenses of the Secured Parties and the fees and expenses of their agents and counsel, and all expenses incurred and advances made by the Secured Parties in connection therewith;
Next, to the indefeasible payment in full of the Secured Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations for which no claim has been made) in such order as the Secured Parties in their sole discretion shall determine; and
Finally, to the payment to respective Grantor, or its successors or assigns, or as a court of competent jurisdiction may direct, of any surplus then remaining.
Section 4.10 Attorney in Fact. Without limiting any rights or powers granted by this Agreement to the Secured Parties, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Administrative Agent (and any of its officers, employees or agents) hereby is appointed the attorney in fact of each Grantor for the purpose of carrying out the provisions of this Article IV and taking any action and executing any instruments that the Administrative Agent
may deem necessary or advisable to accomplish the purposes hereof, which appointment as attorney in fact is irrevocable and coupled with an interest. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, so long as the Administrative Agent shall be entitled under this Article IV to make collections in respect of the Collateral, the Administrative Agent shall have the right and power to receive, endorse and collect all checks made payable to the order of any Grantor representing any dividend, payment or other distribution in respect of the Collateral or any part thereof and to give full discharge for the same; provided, however, that the Administrative Agent may not endorse or assign any checks or accounts in the name of such Grantor from Medicare or Medicaid or any other Federal government obligor, absent a court order specifically authorizing such endorsement or assignment.
Section 4.11 Perfection and Recordation. Each Grantor authorizes the Secured Parties to file Uniform Commercial Code financing statements describing the Collateral as “all assets” or “all personal property and fixtures” of such Grantor (provided that no such description shall be deemed to modify the description of Collateral set forth in Article III).
Section 4.12 Termination. When all Secured Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations for which no claim has been made) shall have been indefeasibly paid in full in cash, this Agreement automatically shall terminate, and the Secured Parties shall, upon request of Grantors, cause to be assigned, transferred and delivered, against receipt but without any recourse, warranty or representation whatsoever, any remaining Collateral and money received in respect thereof, to or on the order of the respective Grantor and to be released and canceled all licenses and rights referred to in Section 4.04(b), in each case, at Grantors’ sole expense. The Secured Parties shall also, at the expense of such Grantor, execute and deliver to such Grantor upon such termination such Uniform Commercial Code termination statements and such other documentation as shall be reasonably requested by the respective Grantor to effect the termination and release of the liens on the Collateral as required by this Section 4.12, in each case, at Grantors’ sole expense.
Section 4.13 Releases of Portions of the Collateral. If Collateral is permitted to be sold, transferred or assigned by a Grantor (other than to another Grantor or under an Out-License) pursuant to or in connection with a transaction permitted hereunder, under the other Loan Documents (such as, but not limited to, permitted dispositions set forth in Section 9.09 of the Loan Agreement) or by written consent from the Administrative Agent and/or the Majority Lenders, the Administrative Agent’s security interest in such Collateral shall be automatically released and terminated (provided that such release shall not release or be deemed to constitute a release of any security interests in the proceeds of any such sale, transfer or assignment), and the Administrative Agent shall, at the request and at the sole cost of the Grantors, deliver such evidences of releases as reasonably requested by the Grantors in connection with such transaction.
Section 4.14 Further Assurances. Each Grantor agrees that, from time to time upon the written request of the Majority Lenders, such Grantor will execute and deliver such further documents and do such other acts and things as the Majority Lenders may request in order fully to effect the purposes of this Agreement.
Section 5.01 Notices. All notices, requests, consents and demands hereunder shall be delivered in accordance with Section 15.02 of the Loan Agreement.
Section 5.02 No Waiver. No failure on the part of any Secured Party to exercise, and no course of dealing with respect to, and no delay in exercising, any right, power or remedy hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise by any Secured Party of any right, power or remedy hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or remedy. The remedies herein are cumulative and are not exclusive of any remedies provided by law.
Section 5.03 Amendments, Etc. The terms of this Agreement may be waived, altered or amended only by an instrument in writing duly executed by each Grantor and the Majority Lenders (unless the consent of each Secured Party is required in accordance with Section 15.04 of the Loan Agreement).
Section 5.04 Expenses.
(a) The Grantors shall pay or reimburse the Administrative Agent or the Secured Parties for costs and expenses in accordance with Section 15.03 of the Loan Agreement.
(b) The Grantors shall hereby indemnify the Secured Parties, their Affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, employees, attorneys, agents, advisors and controlling parties in accordance with Section 15.03(b) of the Loan Agreement.
Section 5.05 Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the respective successors and assigns of each Grantor, the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent and the Secured Parties (provided that no Grantor shall assign or transfer its rights or obligations hereunder unless consented to in writing by the Majority Lenders in accordance with the Loan Agreement).
Section 5.06 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same instrument and any of the parties hereto may execute this Agreement by signing any such counterpart.
Section 5.07 Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction; Etc. (a) Governing Law. This Agreement and the rights and obligations of the parties hereunder shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the law of the State of New York, without regard to principles of conflicts of laws that would result in the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction; provided that Section 5-1401 of the New York General Obligations Law shall apply.
(b) Submission to Jurisdiction. Each Grantor agrees that any suit, action or proceeding with respect to this Agreement or any other Loan Document to which it is a party or any judgment entered by any court in respect thereof may be brought initially in the federal or state courts in New York, New York or in the courts of its own corporate domicile and irrevocably submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of each such court for the purpose of any such suit, action, proceeding or judgment. This Section 5.07(b) is for the benefit of the Secured Parties only and, as a result, no Secured Party shall be prevented from taking proceedings in any other courts with
jurisdiction. To the extent allowed by applicable Laws, the Secured Parties may take concurrent proceedings in any number of jurisdictions.
(c) Waiver of Venue. Each Grantor irrevocably waives to the fullest extent permitted by law any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of the venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement and hereby further irrevocably waives to the fullest extent permitted by law any claim that any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum. A final judgment (in respect of which time for all appeals has elapsed) in any such suit, action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in any court to the jurisdiction of which such Grantor is or may be subject, by suit upon judgment.
(d) Service of Process. Each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 5.01. Nothing in this Agreement will affect the right of any party to this Agreement to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.
Section 5.08 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 5.08.

Section 5.11 Severability.

Administrative Agent a supplemental agreement (together with all schedules thereto, a “Joinder”) to this Agreement, in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit A.
