Each Subsidiary hereby ratifies, as of the date hereof, and agrees to be bound by, all of the terms, provisions and conditions applicable to the Guarantor contained in the Guaranty.

2.    The address of each Subsidiary for purposes of all notices and other communications is described on Schedule 10.02 of the Credit Agreement.

3.    Each Subsidiary hereby waives acceptance by the Administrative Agent and the Lenders of the guaranty by such Subsidiary upon the execution of this Agreement by the Subsidiary.

4.    This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall constitute an original but all of which when taken together shall constitute one contract.

5.    This Agreement shall be governed by and construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements made and to be performed entirely within such state, without regard to conflict of laws principles.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, each Subsidiary has caused this Subsidiary Guarantor Joinder Agreement to be duly executed by its authorized officer, and the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Lenders, has caused the same to be accepted by its authorized officer, as of the day and year first above written.
