SECTION 5.13 Depository Banks. At all times on and after the date 90 days after the Effective Date, each of the Borrowers and their Domestic Subsidiaries will maintain the Lender as its principal depository bank, including for the maintenance of operating, administrative, cash management, collection activity, and other deposit accounts for the conduct of its business; provided, however, that the Loan Parties may maintain each of the deposit and lockbox accounts set forth in Section B of the Perfection Certificate for each such Loan Party so long as (a) all funds and other proceeds are swept or transferred into an account maintained with the Lender promptly after receipt, (b) the Loan Parties deliver a signed account control agreement acceptable to the Lender with respect to each such account on or before October 31, 2018, and (c) on or before June 30, 2019 (or such later date agreed to in writing by the Lender in its sole discretion) each of the deposit and lockbox accounts set forth in Section B of the Perfection Certificate for each such Loan Party shall be closed and transferred to the Lender.
ARTICLE II. REPRESENTATIONS. Each Loan Party represents and warrants to the Lender that:

2.1    This Amendment has been duly executed and delivered by such Loan Party and constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of such Loan Party, enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other laws affecting creditors' rights generally and subject to general principles of equity, regardless of whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law.


2.2    After giving effect to this Amendment, the representations and warranties contained in Article III of the Credit Agreement and in the other Loan Documents are true in all material respects on and as of the date hereof with the same force and effect as if made on and as of the date hereof (it being understood and agreed that any representation or warranty which by its terms is made as of a specified date shall be required to be true and correct in all material respects only as of such specified date, and that any representation or warranty which is subject to any materiality qualifier shall be required to be true and correct in all respects).

2.3    After giving effect to this Amendment, no Default exists or has occurred and is continuing, and no Default will be caused after giving effect to this Amendment.
