EIGHTH AMENDMENT TO
FIFTH AMENDED AND RESTATED CREDIT AGREEMENT
FIFTH AMENDED AND RESTATED CREDIT AGREEMENT
This EIGHTH AMENDMENT, dated as of February 15, 2022 (this “Amendment”), is to the Fifth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (as heretofore amended, the “Credit Agreement”), dated as of May 1, 2015 among PENSKE AUTOMOTIVE GROUP, INC., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), various financial institutions party thereto (the “Lenders”) and MERCEDES-BENZ FINANCIAL SERVICES USA LLC, as agent for the Lenders (the “Agent”). Unless otherwise defined herein, terms defined in the Credit Agreement are used herein as defined in the Credit Agreement (including as amended hereby).
WHEREAS, the parties hereto desire to amend the Credit Agreement in certain respects as set forth herein.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and for other good and valuable consideration (the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged), the parties hereto agree as follows:
SECTION 1AMENDMENT. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof and subject to the satisfaction of the conditions precedent set forth in Section 3 of this Amendment, the definition of “Interest Rate” set forth in Section 1.1 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended as follows:
Interest Rate means, for each day, a rate per annum equal to the sum of (a) (i) in the case of any day from and including the first day of each calendar month through and including the 15th day of such calendar month, the LIBO Rate for the first day of such calendar month and (ii) in the case of any day from and including the 16th day of each calendar month through and including the last day of such calendar month, the LIBO Rate for the 16th day of such calendar month (the rate set forth in this clause (a) being the “Base LIBO Rate”) plus (b) (x) if the Total Outstandings are less than or equal to the Borrowing Base, a margin of one and one-half percent (1.50%) per annum, and (y) if the Total Outstandings exceed the Borrowing Base, then (A) a margin of three percent (3.00%) per annum shall apply to the portion of the Loans equal to the amount by which the Total Outstandings exceed the Borrowing Base and (B) a margin of one and one-half percent (1.50%) per annum shall apply to the portion of Loans not described in the foregoing clause (A) (with each determination of the Borrowing Base in this clause (b) to be effective as of the first day of the calendar month during which the applicable Borrowing Base Certificate is delivered). Notwithstanding the foregoing, at any time an Event of Default exists, the applicable margin shall be increased by two percent (2.00%) per annum. For purposes of this definition, “LIBO Rate” means, for each date of calculation, (1) the rate of interest (rounded upwards, if necessary, to the next 1/16th of 1%) published in The Wall Street Journal on such day (or the immediately preceding Business Day, if such date is not a Business Day) in its “Money Rates” column as the one-month London Interbank Offered Rate for Dollar-denominated deposits (if The Wall Street Journal ceases to publish such a rate or substantially changes the methodology used to determine such rate, then the rate shall be the rate of interest (rounded upwards, if necessary, to the next 1/16th of 1%) published by Reuters Monitor Rates Service on such day (or the immediately preceding Business Day, if such date is not a Business Day) as the one-month London Interbank Offered Rate for Dollar-denominated deposits) or (2) if such rate is not published or available, such rate as shall be otherwise independently determined by the Agent on a basis substantially similar to the methodology used by The Wall Street Journal on the date of this Agreement.
SECTION 2REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES. The Company represents and warrants to the Agent and the Lenders that: (a) the representations and warranties made in Section 8 of the Credit Agreement are true and correct on and as of the date hereof with the same effect as if made on and as of the date hereof (except to the extent relating solely to an earlier date, in which case they were true and correct as of such earlier date); (b) no Event of Default or Unmatured Event of Default exists or
will result from the execution of this Amendment; (c) no event or circumstance has occurred since the Effective Date that has resulted, or would reasonably be expected to result, in a Material Adverse Effect; (d) the execution and delivery by the Company of this Amendment and the performance by the Company of its obligations under the Credit Agreement as amended hereby (as so amended, the “Amended Credit Agreement”) (i) are within the corporate powers of the Company, (ii) have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action, (iii) have received all necessary approval from any governmental authority and (iv) do not and will not contravene or conflict with any provision of any law, rule or regulation or any order, decree, judgment or award which is binding on the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or of any provision of the certificate of incorporation or bylaws or other organizational documents of the Company or of any agreement, indenture, instrument or other document which is binding on the Company or any of its Subsidiaries; and (e) the Amended Credit Agreement is the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally or by equitable principles relating to enforceability.
SECTION 3EFFECTIVENESS. This Amendment shall be effective as of the date first written above upon the Agent’s receipt of a fully executed copy hereof.

This Amendment shall not constitute a course of dealing with the Agent or the Lenders at variance with the Credit Agreement or the other Loan Documents such as to require further notice by the Agent or the Lenders to require strict compliance with the terms of the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents in the future.
1.1Continuing Effectiveness, etc. As hereby amended, the Credit Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and is hereby ratified and confirmed in all respects. All references in the Credit Agreement, the Notes, each other Loan Document and any similar document to the “Credit Agreement” or similar terms shall refer to the Credit Agreement as amended hereby.
