4.Section 2.6 of the Credit Agreement is amended and restated to read:
2.6 Interest Rates. Interest on each advance hereunder shall accrue at an annual rate equal to the Applicable Margin plus the Daily Reset LIBOR Rate. Lender’s internal records of applicable interest rates shall be determinative in the absence of manifest error. If the rate index described above shall become unavailable or shall cease to exist, Lender may, in its discretion, designate a successor to the interest rate described above (which may include a successor index and a spread adjustment).
5.Section 3.1 of the Credit Agreement is amended and restated to read:
3.1 Yield Protection; Capital Adequacy.
(a)Increased Costs Generally. If any Change in Law shall:
(i)impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended or participated in by, Lender;
(ii)subject Lender to any Taxes (other than Indemnified Taxes, Excluded Taxes, and Other Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto, or
(iii)impose on Lender or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or a Loan, and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to Lender of making, converting to, continuing or maintaining any Loan or of maintaining its obligation to make any Loan or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by Lender hereunder (whether of principal, interest or any other amount), then, upon request of Lender, Borrower will pay to Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate Lender for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.
(b)Capital Requirements. If Lender determines that any Change in Law affecting Lender or any lending office of Lender or Lender’s holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on Lender’s capital or on the capital of Lender’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement, the Revolving Commitment or the Loans to a level below that which Lender or Lender’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration Lender’s policies and the policies of Lender’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy), then from time to time Borrower will pay to Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate Lender or Lender’s holding company for any such reduction suffered.
Section 3.2 of the Credit Agreement is amended and restated to read:
3.2 Certificates for Reimbursement; Delay in Requests. A certificate of Lender setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate Lender or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in Section 3.1 and delivered to Borrower shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Borrower shall pay Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof. Failure or delay on the part of Lender to demand compensation pursuant to Section 3.1 shall not constitute a waiver of Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided that Borrower shall not be required to compensate Lender pursuant to Section 3.1 for any increased costs incurred or reductions suffered more than nine months prior to the date that Lender notifies Borrower of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions, and of Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor (except that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the nine-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof).
Section 5.17 of the Credit Agreement is amended and restated to read:
5.17 Anti-Corruption Laws; Sanctions; Anti-Terrorism Laws.

6.7 Compliance with Laws; Anti-Money Laundering Laws.
