The Lender has agreed to waive the Specified Default subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein.
WHEREAS, the Borrower has requested that the Lender amend Section 5.05 of the Credit Agreement;
WHEREAS, the Lender is willing to provide the requested waiver upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth below and amend the Credit Agreement as provided herein subject to the terms and conditions herein.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the Recitals and the mutual promises contained herein and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Borrower and the Lender agree as follows:
SECTION 1. Recitals. The Recitals are incorporated herein by reference and shall be deemed to be a part of this Amendment.
SECTION 2. Waiver. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Amendment, the Lender hereby waives the Specified Default. The waiver set forth in this Section 2 does not operate as a waiver of any provision of the Credit Agreement other than as set forth above with respect to the Specified Default and does not operate with regard to any other prior or future Default or Event of Default. The waiver set forth in this Section 2 shall not be deemed to establish a course of dealing between the parties or waive any Lender’s right to withhold its consent to any similar requests in the future, nor shall the waiver set forth in this Section 2 be deemed to limit, estop or otherwise restrict or prohibit the Lender from exercising any of its rights or remedies under the Credit Agreement or other Loan Documents, or under applicable laws or principles of equity with respect to the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default other than the Specified Default expressly waived in this Section 2, all of which rights and remedies are specifically hereby reserved.
SECTION 3. Amendment to Credit Agreement. The Credit Agreement is hereby amended as set forth in this Section 3.
SECTION 3.01. Amendment to Section 5.05. Section 5.05 of the Credit Agreement is deleted and replaced with the following:

SECTION 4. Reaffirmation. To induce the Lender to enter into this Amendment, the Borrower hereby (a) restates and renews each and every representation and warranty heretofore made by it under, or in connection with the execution and delivery of, the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents (except to the extent any such representation or warranty is expressly stated to have been made as of a specific date, in which case such representation or warranty is true and correct as of such date), and (b) restates, ratifies and reaffirms each and every term and condition set forth in the Credit Agreement and in the other Loan Documents.
