11.Addition to Article IX (Miscellaneous). The following is hereby added as new Section 9.21 to the Credit Agreement:
9.21 Acknowledgement Regarding Any Supported QFCs. To the extent that the Credit Documents provide support, through a guarantee or otherwise, for any Swap Obligations or any other agreement or instrument that is a QFC (such support, “QFC Credit Support”, and each such QFC, a “Supported QFC”), the parties acknowledge and agree as follows with respect to the resolution power of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation under the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and Title II of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (together with the regulations promulgated thereunder, the “U.S. Special Resolution Regimes”) in respect of such Supported QFC and QFC Credit Support (with the provisions below applicable notwithstanding that the Credit Documents and any Supported QFC may in fact be stated to be governed by the laws of the State of New York and/or of the United States or any other state of the United States):
(a)In the event a Covered Entity that is party to a Supported QFC (each, a “Covered Party”) becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, the transfer of such
Supported QFC and the benefit of such QFC Credit Support (and any interest and obligation in or under such Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support, and any rights in property securing such Supported QFC or such QFC Credit Support) from such Covered Party will be effective to the same extent as the transfer would be effective under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support (and any such interest, obligation and rights in property) were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States. In the event a Covered Party or a BHC Act Affiliate of a Covered Party becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. 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 Covered Party are permitted to be exercised to no greater extent than such Default Rights could be exercised under the U.S. 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 Bank shall in no event affect the rights of any Covered Party with respect to a Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support.
(b)As used in this Section 9.21, the following terms have the following meanings:
“BHC Act Affiliate” of a party means an “affiliate” (as such term is defined under, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 U.S.C. 1841(k)) of such party.
“Covered Entity” means any of the following: (i) a “covered entity” as that term is defined in, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. § 252.82(b); (ii) a “covered bank” as that term is defined in, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. § 47.3(b); or (iii) a “covered FSI” as that term is defined in, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. § 382.2(b).
“Default Right” has the meaning assigned to that term in, and shall be interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. §§ 252.81, 47.2 or 382.1, as applicable.
“QFC” has the meaning assigned to the term “qualified financial contract” in, and shall be interpreted in accordance with, 12 U.S.C. 5390(c)(8)(D).
12.New Exhibit A (Bank and Commitment Amounts). Exhibit A attached to the Credit Agreement is hereby deleted and is replaced with Exhibit A attached to this Amendment.
13.New Schedule 1.1 (Existing Liens) and New Schedule 5.12 (Subsidiaries). Schedule 1.1 and Schedule 5.12 attached to the Credit Agreement are each hereby deleted and are replaced with Schedule 1.1 and Schedule 5.12 attached to this Amendment.
14.Reaffirmation of Credit Documents. The Borrower reaffirms its obligations under the Credit Agreement, as amended hereby, and the other Credit Documents to which it is a party or by which it is bound, and represents, warrants and covenants to the Agent and the Banks, as a material inducement to the Administrative Agent and each Bank to enter into this Amendment, that (a) the Borrower has no and in any event waives any, defense, claim or right of setoff with respect to its obligations under, or in any other way relating to, the Credit Agreement, as amended hereby, or any of the other Credit Documents to which it is a party, or the Administrative Agent’s or any Bank’s actions or inactions in respect of any of the foregoing, and (b) all representations and warranties made by or on behalf of the Borrower in the Credit Agreement and the other Credit Documents are true and complete on the date hereof as if made on the date hereof.
15.Conditions Precedent to Amendment. Except to the extent waived in a writing signed by the Administrative Agent and delivered to the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Banks shall have no duties under this Amendment until the Administrative Agent shall have received fully executed originals of each of the following, each in form and substance satisfactory to the Administrative Agent:
(a)Amendment. This Amendment;
(b)Note. A Revolving Credit Note executed by Borrower in favor of PNC Bank, National Association;
(c)Secretary’s Certificate. A certificate from the Secretary or Assistant Secretary of the Borrower certifying to the Administrative Agent that, among other things, (i) attached thereto as an exhibit is a true and correct copy of the resolutions of the board of directors of the Borrower authorizing the Borrower to enter into the transactions described in this Amendment and the execution, delivery and performance by the Borrower of any documents related to this Amendment, (ii) the articles of incorporation and by-laws of the Borrower as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission are in full force and effect and have not been amended or otherwise modified or revoked, and (iii) attached thereto as exhibits are certificates of good standing, each of recent date, from the Secretary of State of Delaware and the Secretary of State of Missouri, certifying the good standing and authority of the Borrower in such states as of such dates; and
(d)KYC Information.

(e)Other Documents. Such other documents as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request to further implement the provisions of this Amendment or the transactions contemplated hereby.
16.No Other Amendments; No Waiver of Default. Except as amended hereby, the Credit Agreement and the other Credit Documents shall remain in full force and effect and be binding on the parties in accordance with their respective terms. By entering into this Amendment, the Administrative Agent and the Banks are not waiving any Default or Event of Default which may exist on the date hereof.
17.Expenses. The Borrower agrees to pay and reimburse the Administrative Agent and/or the Banks for all out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred in connection with the negotiation, preparation, execution, delivery, operation, enforcement and administration of this Amendment, including the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel to the Administrative Agent and the Banks.
18.Counterparts; Electronic Transmission. This Amendment and any documents contemplated hereby may be executed in one or more counterparts and by different parties thereto, all of which counterparts, when taken together, shall constitute but one agreement. This Amendment and any documents contemplated hereby may be executed and delivered by facsimile or other electronic transmission and any such execution or delivery shall be fully effective as if executed and delivered in person.
19.Mo. Rev. Stat. Section 432.047 Statement. The following statement is given pursuant to Mo. Rev. Stat. Section 432.047: NO ORAL AGREEMENTS; FINAL WRITTEN AGREEMENT. ORAL AGREEMENTS OR COMMITMENTS TO LOAN MONEY, EXTEND CREDIT, OR TO FORBEAR FROM ENFORCING REPAYMENT OF A DEBT INCLUDING PROMISES TO EXTEND OR RENEW SUCH DEBT ARE NOT ENFORCEABLE REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL THEORY UPON WHICH IT IS BASED THAT IS IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THE CREDIT AGREEMENT. TO PROTECT YOU (THE BORROWER) AND US (THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT, THE DOCUMENTATION AGENT, THE LEAD ARRANGER, THE ISSUING BANK AND THE BANKS) FROM MISUNDERSTANDING OR DISAPPOINTMENT, ANY AGREEMENTS WE REACH COVERING SUCH MATTERS ARE CONTAINED IN THIS WRITING, WHICH, TOGETHER WITH ALL OTHER WRITTEN AGREEMENTS BETWEEN US, IS THE COMPLETE AND EXCLUSIVE STATEMENT OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN US, EXCEPT AS WE MAY LATER AGREE IN WRITING TO MODIFY IT.
