(b)Assignments by Lender. The Lender may at any time assign all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of the Commitment and the Loans) with the prior written consent of the Borrower, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; provided that no such consent shall be required for an assignment to an Affiliate of the Lender, or, if a Default has occurred and is continuing, any other Person. In the event of any such assignment, the Lender and the assignee or assignees may enter such intercreditor arrangements as they may determine to be necessary or advisable for the purpose of determining voting rights and similar issues hereunder. From and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Assumption, the assignee thereunder shall be a party to this Agreement and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, have the rights and obligations of the Lender under this Agreement, and the Lender shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Assumption covering all of the Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, the Lender shall cease to be a party hereto) but shall continue to be
entitled to the benefits of Sections 5 and 10.3 with respect to facts and circumstances occurring prior to the effective date of such assignment.
(c)Certain Pledges. The Lender may at any time pledge or assign as collateral all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of the Lender; provided that no such pledge or assignment shall release the Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for the Lender as a party hereto.
10.6. Survival. The obligations of the Borrower under Sections 5 and 10 shall survive the repayment of the Loans and the termination of the Commitment and, in the case of any assignment by the Lender of any interest in the Commitment or Loans hereunder, shall survive, in the case of any event or circumstance that occurred prior to the effective date of such assignment, the making of such assignment, notwithstanding that the Lender may cease to be the “Lender” hereunder. In addition, each representation and warranty made, or deemed to be made by a notice of any Loan, herein or pursuant hereto shall survive the making of such representation and warranty.
10.7. Captions. The section headings appearing herein are included solely for convenience of reference and are not intended to affect the interpretation of any provision of this Agreement.
10.8. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto in different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Agreement by facsimile or electronic mail shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement.

(a)Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Texas or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the applicable laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Texas.
(b)Submission to Jurisdiction. The Borrower irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Texas sitting in Travis County and of the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas, and any applicable appellate court, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the parties hereto irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims with respect to any such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in such Texas State court or, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, in such Federal court. Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law. Nothing in this Agreement shall affect any right that the Lender may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Agreement against the Borrower or its property in the courts of any jurisdiction.
(c)Alternative Process. Nothing herein shall in any way be deemed to limit the ability of the Lender to serve any such process or summonses in any other manner permitted by applicable law.
(d)Waiver of Venue, Etc. Each of the parties hereto irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement in any court referred to in subsection (b) of this Section. Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court.
10.10. Waiver of Jury Trial. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PERSON HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PERSON WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION.
10.11. Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire contract among the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersedes any and all previous agreements and understandings, oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof.
10.12. Severability. If any provision hereof is found by a court to be invalid or unenforceable, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law the parties agree that such invalidity or unenforceability shall not impair the validity or enforceability of any other provision hereof.
10.13. No Fiduciary Relationship. The Borrower acknowledges that the Lender has no fiduciary relationship with, or fiduciary duty to, the Borrower arising out of or in connection with this Agreement. This Agreement does not create a joint venture among the parties.
