Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Amendment have the meanings assigned to them in the Company’s Second Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement dated as of January 31, 2017, as currently in effect (the “LLC Agreement”).
Pursuant to Section 8.6 of the LLC Agreement, the parties desire to amend the LLC Agreement as provided in this Amendment.
In consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants and agreements contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties, intending to be legally bound, agree as follows:
1. Tax Distributions. Section 2.1(b) of the LLC Agreement is amended by inserting the following immediately prior to the last sentence thereof:
“Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.1(b), distributions pursuant to this Section 2.1(b) shall be made only to the extent not in violation of any Company Loan Agreement. To the extent that the full amount of distributions otherwise required pursuant to this Section 2.1(b) cannot be made as a result of the immediately preceding sentence, distributions shall be made to the Members in proportion to the amounts that would have been due absent the application of the immediately preceding sentence, and the remaining portion of any such distributions shall be made promptly after such portion would not result in violation of any Company Loan Agreement.”
2. Subordinated Credit Agreement. A new Section 4.9 is added to the LLC Agreement to read as follows:
“Section 4.9 Subordinated Credit Agreement. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Company and its Subsidiaries may enter into the Subordinated Credit Agreement, and MSG and its Affiliates may exercise any remedies thereunder or any remedies they (or any of them) have as creditors under applicable law. Without limitation of the foregoing, in the event the lender(s) under the Subordinated Credit Agreement foreclose on any equity interests pledged to them, then notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, (a) they (or any of them) shall be entitled to exercise all rights with respect thereto without regard to anything in this Agreement to the contrary, and (b) in no event shall any foreclosure or other Transfer of Interests to them or for their benefit be prohibited hereunder.”
(a) The definition of “Credit Agreement Default” in Exhibit A of the LLC Agreement is amended by adding the words “or the Subordinated Credit Agreement” immediately following the words “the Credit Agreement” in each of the two locations where the words “the Credit Agreement” appear in such definition.
