Accordingly, any rule of law or any legal decision that would provide any Party with a defense to the enforcement of the terms of this Agreement against such Party based upon lack of legal counsel shall have no application and is expressly waived.
 
(c) Although none of the Parties intends that this Agreement should constitute, and they each believe it does not constitute, a solicitation or acceptance of a chapter 11 plan of reorganization or an offering of securities, each Consenting First Lien Lender acknowledges, agrees and represents to the other Parties that it (i) is an accredited investor (as such term is defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act), (ii) understands that the securities to be acquired by it (if any) pursuant to the Restructuring have not been registered under the Securities Act and that such securities are, to the extent not acquired pursuant to section 1145 of the Bankruptcy Code, being offered and sold pursuant to an exemption from registration contained in the Securities Act, based in part upon such Consenting First Lien Lender’s representations contained in this Agreement and cannot be sold unless subsequently registered under the Securities Act or an exemption from registration is available, and (iii) has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that such Consenting First Lien Lender is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the securities to be acquired by it (if any) pursuant to Restructuring and understands and is able to bear any economic risks with such investment.

LLC (“Greenhill”) (the “Ad Hoc First Lien Lender Group”) in their sole discretion. Pursuant to the Plan, the Restructuring may be effectuated either (a) as a sale of, or investment in, the Company’s business to or by a third party (the “Sale Transaction”) or (b) a standalone reorganization on the terms set forth herein (the “Reorganization Transaction”).
 
Sale and Marketing Process:
 
 
 
 
Following the Commencement Date, the Debtors shall continue their sale and marketing process (the “Sale Process”) and solicit bids for a potential Sale Transaction in accordance with the milestones, Bidding Procedures and other terms set forth in the RSA and in a manner reasonably acceptable to the Requisite First Lien Lenders. The Sale Process may be terminated at any time by the Debtors with the prior written consent of the Requisite First Lien Lenders.
Davis Polk and Greenhill shall have the right to review all information, diligence, and materials provided by the Debtors or their advisors to any bidder or prospective bidder in connection with Sale Process and to consult with the Debtors or their advisors with respect to the Sale Process. As set forth in the Bidding Procedures, the Debtors shall provide to Davis Polk and Greenhill all term sheets, letters, proposals, offers, bids and other materials, whether non-binding or not, that are received by the Debtors or their advisors in connection with the Sale Process within one (1) day of receipt by the Debtors or their advisors, as applicable.

The Debtors shall not consummate the Sale Transaction on the Plan Effective Date unless either (a) in the judgment of the Debtors and the Requisite First Lien Lenders, the successful bid or bids (i) provides sufficient cash consideration (the “Cash Consideration Amount”) to satisfy (1) DIP Claims (and any Super Senior Claims that do not become DIP Claims), (2) Administrative, Priority Tax and Other Priority Claims, (3) Other Secured Claims, (4) the First Lien Claims, and (5) the expected costs associated with the wind-down of the Debtors’ estates in accordance with a wind-down budget acceptable to the Requisite First Lien Lenders, and (ii) includes other terms and conditions that the Debtors and the Requisite First Lien Lenders may reasonably require, or (b) the successful bid or bids provides cash consideration that is less than the Cash Consideration Amount (but greater than or equal to the aggregate amount of the DIP Claims, Administrative, Priority Tax and Other Priority Claims, and Other Secured Claims and the expected costs associated with the wind-down of the Debtors’ estates as described above), but is otherwise acceptable to the Requisite First Lien Lenders and the Debtors.

The liens securing the New Exit Loans shall be senior in priority to the liens securing the New First Lien Term Loan.

The aggregate initial principal amount of the New First Lien Term Loan shall be equal to (i) the total outstanding debt of the Reorganized Debtors upon the Plan Effective Date in the amount of $400 million less (ii) the amount of the New Exit Loans (the “New First Lien Term Loan Amount”). The New First Lien Term Loan Amount shall be subject to change, with the consent of the Debtors and the Requisite First Lien Lenders, in the event that the Debtors’ Canadian business is sold.
 
New Equity Interests:
 
In the event that the Reorganization Transaction is consummated, on the Plan Effective Date, FCI shall issue new equity interests (the “New Equity Interests”) to the holders of First Lien Claims (in each case, subject to dilution from the Management Incentive Plan).

Reorganized FCI Board:
 
In the event that the Reorganization Transaction is consummated, the Board of Directors of Reorganized FCI (the “Reorganized FCI Board”) will consist of seven directors: (i) the Chief Executive Officer of Reorganized FCI and (ii) six directors selected by the Ad Hoc First Lien Lender Group, at least one of which shall be independent.

Up to 10% of the equity interests of Reorganized FCI, on a fully diluted basis, shall be reserved for issuance in connection with the Management Incentive Plan.
The participants in the Management Incentive Plan, the allocations and form of the options and other equity-based compensation to such participants (including the amount of allocations and the timing of the grant of the options and other equity-based compensation), and the terms and conditions of such options and other equity-based compensation (including time and performance based vesting, exercise prices, base values, hurdles, forfeiture, repurchase rights and transferability) shall be determined by the Reorganized FCI Board.
 
DIP Facility and Use of Cash Collateral:
 
Certain of the Prepetition First Lien Lenders that execute the RSA prior to the DIP Commitment Deadline (as defined in the RSA) (the “DIP Lenders”) shall provide the Debtors with a secured debtor-in-possession financing, the proceeds of which shall be used for, among other things, general corporate purposes during the pendency of the Chapter 11 Cases on the terms and conditions set forth in the DIP term sheet attached as Schedule 1 to this Term Sheet (the “DIP Facility”).

The Debtors will seek authority promptly upon commencement of the Chapter 11 Cases to use cash collateral of the the Prepetition Super Senior Lenders, the Prepetition First Lien Lenders and the Prepetition Second Lien Lenders to fund the administration of the Chapter 11 Cases. In connection with the Debtors’ use of cash collateral and DIP Facility, subject to Bankruptcy Court approval, the Company will agree to provide “adequate protection” (as such term is defined in sections 361 and 363 of the Bankruptcy Code) to the Prepetition Super Senior Lenders, the Prepetition First Lien Lenders and the Prepetition Second Lien Lenders as set forth in the debtor-in-possession financing agreement (the “DIP Credit Agreement”).
