against Agent or any Lender, whether previously or now existing or arising out of or relating to any transactions or dealings between Agent, Lenders, and Borrowers through the date of this Amendment with respect to the Indebtedness or otherwise, including without limitation, any affirmative defenses, counter-claims, set-offs, deductions or recoupments.
7.Successors and Assigns. This Amendment shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties and their respective successors and assigns.
8.Other Modification. This Amendment may be altered or modified only by written instrument duly executed by Borrowers, Agent and the Lenders.
