Item 1.01       Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

Investor Rights Agreement

 

In connection with the closing of the initial public offering (the “IPO”) of Diversey Holdings, Ltd. (“we,” “us” or “our”), we entered into an Investor Rights Agreement (the “IRA”) with Bain Capital Fund XI, L.P. and certain of its affiliates (collectively, “Bain Capital”) and certain of our other shareholders, which provides for certain registration rights and nomination rights, as summarized below.

 

Registration Rights

 

The IRA provides Bain Capital with certain customary demand registration rights which enables it to require us to file a registration statement and otherwise assist with certain public offerings of our ordinary shares under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Bain Capital is also entitled to certain customary “piggy-back” registration rights in the event that we propose to register securities as part of a public offering. In addition, certain other shareholders, including members of our management, are entitled to certain customary “piggyback” registration rights in the event that Bain Capital or we propose to register securities as part of a public offering. The registration rights are subject to certain conditions and limitations, including the right of the underwriters to limit the number of shares to be included in an underwritten offering and our right to delay or withdraw a registration statement under certain circumstances

 

All costs and expenses associated with any demand registration or “piggy-back” registration will be borne by us other than underwriting discounts, commissions and transfer taxes, if any. We are also required to provide indemnification and contribution for the benefit of the selling shareholders in connection with any demand registration or “piggy-back” registration.

 

Nomination Rights

 

The IRA also provides Bain Capital with the right to nominate to our board of directors: (i) a majority of the directors for so long as Bain Capital beneficially owns 40% or more of the total number of ordinary shares outstanding immediately following the completion of the IPO; (ii) a number of directors (rounded up to the nearest whole number) equal to 40% of the total number of directors for so long as Bain Capital beneficially owns at least 30% and less than 40% of the total number of ordinary shares outstanding immediately following the completion of the IPO; (iii) a number of directors (rounded up to the nearest whole number) equal to 30% of the total number of directors for so long as Bain Capital beneficially owns at least 20% and less than 30% of the total number of ordinary shares outstanding immediately following the completion of the IPO; (iv) a number directors (rounded up to the nearest whole number) equal to 20% of the total number of directors (but not fewer than two directors) for so long as Bain Capital beneficially owns at least 10% and less than 20% of the total number of ordinary shares outstanding immediately following the completion of the IPO; and (v) one director for so long as Bain Capital beneficially owns at least 2% and less than 10% of the total number of ordinary shares outstanding immediately following the completion of the IPO. The IRA also provides that Bain Capital may assign such right to one of its affiliates.

 

In the event that any director nominated by Bain Capital resigns, is removed or is unable to serve for any reason prior to the expiration of his or her term as a director, then Bain Capital will be entitled to designate a replacement director to be appointed to the board as soon as reasonably practicable (regardless of Bain Capital’s beneficial ownership at the time of such vacancy), with such designee serving for the remainder of the term of the director being replaced.

 

In addition, for so long as Bain Capital beneficially owns at least 30% of the ordinary shares outstanding as of immediately following the completion of the IPO, it is entitled to designate the Chairman of the board of directors and a majority of the directors serving on each committee of the board. For so long as Bain Capital is entitled to nominate at least one director to the board, it is entitled to designate at least one director to serve on each committee of the board.

 

The nomination and designation rights described above are subject to compliance with the rules and regulations of NASDAQ and any applicable laws with respect to independent directors serving on our board or committees thereof.

 

The foregoing description does not constitute a complete summary of the IRA and is qualified by reference to the full text of the IRA filed as Exhibit 10.1 herewith.

The Second Amendment provides for (i) an incremental $200 million of revolving loan commitments under the Borrower’s $250.0 million revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”), which commitments are treated the same as the existing class of revolving loans (“New Revolving Loans”), and (ii) an extension of the Revolving Credit Facility maturity date to the fifth anniversary of the closing of the Second Amendment, provided that the Revolving Credit Facility shall mature on June 6, 2024, if as of such date, more than $500 million of the aggregate principal amount of the term loans issued under the Credit Agreement and due on September 6, 2024 remain outstanding and have not been extended, modified, renewed, replaced, refunded or refinanced with indebtedness with a scheduled maturity date of no earlier than three months after the fifth anniversary of the closing of the Second Amendment.

REGISTRATION RIGHTS

Section 3.1         Demand Registration.

 

Section 3.1.1      Request for Demand Registration.

 

(a)At any time following the date of this Agreement, Bain Capital shall have the right to make a written request from time to time (a “Demand Registration Request”) to the Company for Registration of all or any portion of the Registrable Securities held by such Holder on Form S-1 or any similar long-form registration statement (“Long-Form Registrations”) or on Form S-3 or any similar short-form registration statement (“Short-Form Registrations”), if available (any such requested registration, a “Demand Registration”). All Long-Form Registrations will be underwritten registrations unless otherwise approved by Bain Capital. Demand Registrations will be Short-Form Registrations whenever the Company is permitted to use any applicable short form and if the managing underwriters (if any) and Bain Capital agrees to the use of a Short-Form Registration.

 

(b)Each Demand Registration Request shall specify (x) the approximate amount of such Holder’s Registrable Securities to be registered and (y) if known, the intended method or methods of disposition thereof. Bain Capital will be entitled to request an unlimited number of Demand Registrations in which the Company will pay all Registration Expenses, whether or not any such registration is consummated.

 

(c)Upon receipt of a Demand Registration Request, the Company shall as promptly as practicable (and in any event within forty-give (45) days, in the case of a Long-Form Registration, or fifteen (15) days, in the case of a Short-Form Registration) file a Registration Statement (a “Demand Registration Statement”) relating to such Demand Registration, and use its best efforts to cause such Demand Registration Statement to be promptly declared effective under the Securities Act.

 

Section 3.1.2      Demand Notice. Within five (5) days after receipt of any such request, the Company will give written notice of the Demand Registration to all other Holders and subject to the terms of Section 3.1.7, will include in such Demand Registration (and in all related registrations and qualifications under state blue sky laws and in any related underwriting) all Registrable Securities with respect to which the Company has received written requests for inclusion therein within five (5) days after the receipt of the Company’s notice; provided that, with the consent of Bain Capital, the Company may instead provide notice of the Demand Registration to all other Holders within three (3) Business Days following the non-confidential filing of the registration statement with respect to the Demand Registration so long as such registration statement is not an automatic shelf registration statement (as defined in Rule 405 under the Securities Act).

 

Section 3.1.3      Demand Withdrawal. The Holders may withdraw all or any portion of their Registrable Securities included in a Demand Registration from such Demand Registration at any time prior to the effectiveness of the Demand Registration Statement or the filing of the Demand, as applicable. Upon receipt of a notice to such effect from Bain Capital, the Company shall cease all efforts to pursue or consummate such Demand Registration.

 

  6 

 

Section 3.1.4      Effective Registration. The Company shall use reasonable best efforts to cause any Demand Registration Statement to become effective and remain effective for not less than one hundred eighty (180) days (or such shorter period as will terminate when all Registrable Securities covered by such Demand Registration Statement have been sold or withdrawn), or, if such Demand Registration Statement relates to an Underwritten Public Offering, such longer period as in the opinion of counsel for the underwriter or underwriters a Prospectus is required by law to be delivered in connection with sales of Registrable Securities by an underwriter or dealer.

 

Section 3.1.5      Delay in Filing; Suspension of Registration. If the filing, initial effectiveness or continued use of a Demand Registration Statement at any time would require the Company to make an Adverse Disclosure, the Company may, upon giving prompt written notice of such action to the Holders, delay the filing or initial effectiveness of, or suspend use of, as applicable, the Demand Registration Statement (a “Demand Suspension”); provided, however, that the Company shall not be permitted to exercise a Demand Suspension more than once during any twelve (12)-month period and such Demand Suspension may not exceed sixty (60) days. In the case of a Demand Suspension, the Holders agree to suspend use of any applicable Prospectus in connection with any sale or purchase, or offer to sell or purchase, Registrable Securities, upon receipt of the notice referred to above. The Company shall immediately notify the Holders in writing upon the termination of any Demand Suspension, amend or supplement any Prospectus, if necessary, so it does not contain any untrue statement or omission of a material fact, and furnish to the Holders such numbers of copies of any Prospectus as so amended or supplemented as the Holders may reasonably request. The Company shall, if necessary, supplement or amend any Demand Registration Statement, if required by the registration form used by the Company for the Demand Registration or by the instructions applicable to such registration form or by the Securities Act or the rules or regulations promulgated thereunder or as may reasonably be requested by the Holders whose Registrable Securities are included in such Demand Registration Statement.

 

Section 3.1.6      Priority of Securities Registered Pursuant to Demand Registrations. If the managing underwriter or underwriters of a proposed Underwritten Public Offering of the Registrable Securities included in a Demand Registration advise the Company in writing that, in its or their opinion, the number of securities requested to be included in such Demand Registration exceeds the number that can be sold in such offering without being likely to have an adverse effect on the price, timing or distribution of the securities offered or the market for the securities offered, then the securities to be included in such Registration shall be allocated to the Holders based on each such Holder’s Pro Rata Portion of the number of Registrable Securities that, in the opinion of such managing underwriter or underwriters, can be sold without having such adverse effect.

 

  7 

 

Section 3.2         Shelf Registration.

 

Section 3.2.1      Request for Shelf Registration.

 

(a)Upon the written request of Bain Capital from time to time following the first anniversary of an IPO (a “Shelf Registration Request”), the Company shall promptly file a shelf Registration Statement with the SEC pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act (each, a “Shelf Registration Statement”) relating to the offer and sale of Registrable Securities by Bain Capital from time to time in accordance with the methods of distribution elected by Bain Capital, and the Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause such Shelf Registration Statement to promptly become effective under the Securities Act. Any such Registration pursuant to a Shelf Registration Request shall hereinafter be referred to as a “Shelf Registration.”

 

(b)If on the date of the Shelf Registration Request contemplating the filing of a Shelf Registration Statement the Company is a WKSI, then the Shelf Registration Request may request Registration with the SEC of an unspecified amount of Registrable Securities to be sold by unspecified Holders. If on the date of the Shelf Registration Request the Company is not a WKSI, then the Shelf Registration Request shall specify the aggregate amount of Registrable Securities to be registered. The Company shall provide to Bain Capital the information necessary to determine the Company’s status as a WKSI upon request.

 

Section 3.2.2      Shelf Registration Notice. Promptly upon receipt of a Shelf Registration Request (but in no event more than two (2) Business Days thereafter (or such shorter period as may be reasonably requested in connection with an underwritten “block trade”)), the Company shall deliver a written notice (a “Shelf Registration Notice”) of any such request to all other Holders, which notice shall specify, if applicable, the amount of Registrable Securities to be registered, and the Shelf Registration Notice shall offer each such Holder the opportunity to include in the Shelf Registration that number of Registrable Securities as each such Holder may request in writing. The Company shall include in such Shelf Registration all such Registrable Securities with respect to which the Company has received written requests for inclusion therein within two (2) Business Days (or such shorter period as may be reasonably requested in connection with an underwritten “block trade,” provided such period is at least 24 hours) after the date that the Shelf Registration Notice has been delivered. The Company will, as expeditiously as possible (and in any event within ten (10) days after the receipt of a Shelf Registration Notice), use its best efforts to facilitate such Shelf Registration.

 

Section 3.2.3      Continued Effectiveness of Shelf Registration Statement. The Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to keep any Shelf Registration Statement continuously effective under the Securities Act in order to permit the Prospectus forming part of the Shelf Registration Statement to be usable by Holders until the earlier of: (i) the date as of which all Registrable Securities have been sold pursuant to the Shelf Registration Statement as part of another Registration (but in no event prior to the applicable period referred to in Section 4(a)(3) of the Securities Act and Rule 174 thereunder); and (ii) the date as of which no Holder holds Registrable Securities (such period of effectiveness, the “Shelf Period”). Subject to Section 3.2.4, the Company shall be deemed not to have used its reasonable best efforts to keep the Shelf Registration Statement effective during the Shelf Period if the Company voluntarily takes any action or omits to take any action that would result in Holders of the Registrable Securities covered thereby not being able to offer and sell any Registrable Securities pursuant to such Shelf Registration Statement during the Shelf Period, unless such action or omission is required by applicable law.

Section 3.2.4      Suspension of Shelf Registration. If the continued use of such Shelf Registration Statement at any time would require the Company to make an Adverse Disclosure, the Company may, upon giving prompt written notice of such action to the Holders, suspend use of the Shelf Registration Statement (a “Shelf Suspension”); provided, however, that the Company shall not be permitted to exercise a Shelf Suspension more than one time during any twelve (12)-month period for a period not to exceed sixty (60) days. In the case of a Shelf Suspension, the Holders agree to suspend use of the applicable Prospectus in connection with any sale or purchase of, or offer to sell or purchase, Registrable Securities, upon receipt of the notice referred to above. The Company shall immediately notify the Holders in writing upon the termination of any Shelf Suspension, amend or supplement the Prospectus, if necessary, so it does not contain any untrue statement or omission of a material fact and furnish to the Holders such numbers of copies of the Prospectus as so amended or supplemented as the Holders may reasonably request. The Company shall, if necessary, supplement or amend the Shelf Registration Statement, if required by the registration form used by the Company for the Shelf Registration Statement or by the instructions applicable to such registration form or by the Securities Act or the rules or regulations promulgated thereunder or as may reasonably be requested by the Holders of a majority of Registrable Securities that are included in such Shelf Registration Statement.

 

Section 3.2.5      Shelf Takedown.

 

(a)At any time the Company has an effective Shelf Registration Statement with respect to Bain Capital’s Registrable Securities, by notice to the Company specifying the intended method or methods of disposition thereof, Bain Capital may make a written request (a “Shelf Takedown Request”) to the Company to effect a Public Offering, including an Underwritten Shelf Takedown, of all or a portion of such Registrable Securities that may be registered under such Shelf Registration Statement, and as soon as practicable the Company shall amend or supplement the Shelf Registration Statement as necessary for such purpose.

 

  9 

 

(b)Promptly upon receipt of a Shelf Takedown Request (but in no event more than two (2) Business Days thereafter (or such shorter period as may be reasonably requested in connection with an underwritten “block trade”)) for any Underwritten Shelf Takedown, the Company shall deliver a notice (a “Shelf Takedown Notice”) to each other Holder with Registrable Securities covered by the applicable Registration Statement, or to all other Holders if such Registration Statement is undesignated (each a “Potential Takedown Participant”). The Shelf Takedown Notice shall offer each such Potential Takedown Participant the opportunity to include in any Underwritten Shelf Takedown such number of Registrable Securities as each such Potential Takedown Participant may request in writing. The Company shall include in the Underwritten Shelf Takedown all such Registrable Securities with respect to which the Company has received written requests for inclusion therein within one (1) Business Day (or such shorter period as may be reasonably requested by Bain Capital in connection with an underwritten “block trade,” provided such period is at least 24 hours) after the date that the Shelf Takedown Notice has been delivered. Any Potential Takedown Participant’s request to participate in an Underwritten Shelf Takedown shall be binding on the Potential Takedown Participant; provided that each such Potential Takedown Participant that elects to participate may condition its participation on the Underwritten Shelf Takedown being completed within fifteen (15) Business Days of its acceptance. Notwithstanding the delivery of any Shelf Takedown Notice, all determinations as to whether to complete any Underwritten Shelf Takedown and as to the timing, manner, price and other terms of any Underwritten Shelf Takedown contemplated by this Section 3.2.5 shall be determined by Bain Capital. Bain Capital will have the right to select the investment banker(s) and manager(s) to administer any underwritten offering in connection with any Shelf Offering.

 

(c)Notwithstanding (a) and (b), if Bain Capital wishes to engage in an underwritten block trade or bought deal off of a Shelf Registration Statement (either through filing an automatic Shelf Registration Statement or through a take-down from an already existing Shelf Registration Statement) (each, an “Underwritten Block Trade”), then no Holder (other than Bain Capital) will be permitted to participate in such Underwritten Block Trade without the consent of Bain Capital, except as may otherwise be provided in any other agreement between the Company and a Holder.

 

Section 3.2.6      Priority of Securities Sold Pursuant to Shelf Takedowns. If the managing underwriter or underwriters of a proposed Underwritten Shelf Takedown pursuant to Section 3.2.5 advise the Company in writing that, in its or their opinion, the number of securities requested to be included in the proposed Underwritten Shelf Takedown exceeds the number that can be sold in such Underwritten Shelf Takedown without being likely to have an adverse effect on the price, timing or distribution of the securities offered or the market for the securities offered, the number of Registrable Securities to be included in such offering shall be allocated to the Holders based on each such Holder’s Pro Rata Portion of the number of Registrable Securities that, in the opinion of such managing underwriter or underwriters, can be sold without having such adverse effect.

 

Section 3.2.7      Resale Rights. In the event that Bain Capital elects to request a Registration pursuant to this Section 3.2 in connection with a distribution of Registrable Securities to its partners or members, the Registration shall provide for resale by such partners or members, if requested by Bain Capital.

Section 3.3         Piggyback Registration.

 

Section 3.3.1      Participation. If the Company at any time following its IPO proposes to file a Registration Statement with respect to any offering of its equity securities for its own account or for the account of Bain Capital under the Securities Act, or to otherwise conduct a Public Offering with respect to any offering of its equity securities for its own account or for the account of any other Person (other than (i) a Registration under Section 3.1 or 3.2 (ii) a Registration on Form S-4 or Form S-8 or any successor form to such forms or (iii) a Registration of securities solely relating to an offering and sale to employees or directors of the Company or its subsidiaries pursuant to any employee stock plan or other employee benefit plan arrangement), then, as soon as practicable (but in no event less than ten (10) Business Days prior to the proposed date of filing of the Registration Statement in respect of such offering or, in the case of a Public Offering under a Shelf Registration Statement, the anticipated pricing or trade date), the Company shall give written notice (a “Piggyback Notice”) of such proposed filing or Public Offering to all Holders, and such Piggyback Notice shall offer the Holders the opportunity to register under any such Registration Statement, or to include in such Public Offering, such number of Registrable Securities as each such Holder may request in writing (a “Piggyback Registration”). Subject to Section 3.3.2, the Company shall include in such Registration Statement or in such Public Offering, as applicable, all such Registrable Securities that are requested to be included therein within five (5) days after the receipt by such Holder of any such notice; provided, however, that if at any time after giving written notice of its intention to register or sell any securities and prior to the effective date of the Registration Statement filed in connection with such Registration, or the pricing or trade date of a Public Offering under a Shelf Registration Statement, the Company determines for any reason not to register or sell or to delay the Registration or sale of such securities, the Company shall give written notice of such determination to each Holder and, thereupon, (i) in the case of a determination not to register or sell, shall be relieved of its obligation to register or sell any Registrable Securities in connection with such Registration or Public Offering (but not from its obligation to pay the Registration Expenses in connection therewith), without prejudice, however, to the rights of any Holders entitled to request that such Registration or sale be effected as a Demand Registration under Section 3.1 (including pursuant to Section 3.2.8(c)) or an Underwritten Shelf Takedown under Section 3.2, as the case may be, and (ii) in the case of a determination to delay Registration or sale, in the absence of a request for a Demand Registration or an Underwritten Shelf Takedown, as the case may be, shall be permitted to delay registering or selling any Registrable Securities, for the same period as the delay in registering or selling such other securities. Any Holder shall have the right to withdraw all or part of its request for inclusion of its Registrable Securities in a Piggyback Registration by giving written notice to the Company of its request to withdraw. If any Piggyback Registration is an underwritten offering, the selection of investment banker(s) and manager(s) for the offering must be approved by Bain Capital.

 

Section 3.3.2      Priority of Piggyback Registration. If the managing underwriter or underwriters of any proposed offering of Registrable Securities included in a Piggyback Registration informs the Company and the participating Holders in writing that, in its or their opinion, the number of securities that such Holders and any other Persons intend to include in such offering exceeds the number that can be sold in such offering without being likely to have a significant adverse effect on the price, timing or distribution of the securities offered or the market for the securities offered, then the securities to be included in such Registration shall be (i) first, one hundred percent (100%) of the securities that the Company proposes to sell, and (ii) second, and only if all the securities referred to in clause (i) have been included, then the number of Registrable Securities to be included in such Registration shall be allocated to the Holders based on each such Holder’s Pro Rata Portion of the number of Registrable Securities that, in the opinion of such managing underwriter or underwriters, can be sold without having such adverse effect.

 

  11 

 

Section 3.3.3      No Effect on Other Registrations. No Registration of Registrable Securities effected pursuant to a request under this Section 3.3 shall be deemed to have been effected pursuant to Section 3.1 and 3.2 or shall relieve the Company of its obligations under Section 3.1 and 3.2.

 

Section 3.4         Lock-Up Agreements.

 

Section 3.4.1      In connection with any Underwritten Public Offering (including an IPO), each Holder will enter into any lock-up, holdback or similar agreements requested by the underwriter(s) managing such offering, in each case with such modifications and exceptions as may be approved by Bain Capital (including a carve-out to facilitate any Charitable Gifting Event by Bain Capital). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Holder agrees that in connection with an IPO and any Demand Registration, Shelf Registration or Piggyback Registration that is an Underwritten Public Offering of the Company’s equity securities and in which Registrable Securities are included, he, she or it shall not (i) offer, sell, contract to sell, pledge or otherwise dispose of (including sales pursuant to Rule 144), directly or indirectly, any equity securities of the Company (including equity securities of the Company that may be deemed to be owned beneficially by such holder in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC (collectively, “Securities”), or any securities, options, or rights convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for Securities (collectively, “Other Securities”), (ii) enter into a transaction which would have the same effect as any action described in the foregoing clause (i), (iii) enter into any swap, hedge or other arrangement that Transfers, in whole or in part, any of the economic consequences or ownership of any Securities or Other Securities, whether such transaction is to be settled by delivery of such Securities, Other Securities, in cash or otherwise, or (iv) publicly disclose the intention to enter into any transaction described in the foregoing clauses (i), (ii) or (iii), from the date on which the Company gives notice to the Holders that a preliminary prospectus has been circulated for such Underwritten Public Offering to the date that is 180 days following the date of the final prospectus for such Underwritten Public Offering in the case of an IPO, or 90 days following the date of the final prospectus for such Underwritten Public Offering other than an IPO (or in each case such shorter period as agreed to by the managing underwriters of such public offering), unless such book runners otherwise agree in writing (each such period referred to herein as a “Holdback Period”). If (x) the Company issues an earnings release or other material news or a material event relating to the Company occurs during the last 17 days of the Holdback Period or (y) prior to the expiration of the Holdback Period, the Company announces that it will release earnings results during the 16 day period beginning upon the expiration of the Holdback Period, then to the extent necessary for a managing or co-managing underwriter of a registered offering required hereunder to comply with Rule 2711(f)(4) of the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc., the Holdback Period shall be extended until 18 days after the earnings release or the occurrence of the material news or event, as the case may be (each such period referred to herein as a “Holdback Extension Period”). The Company may impose stop Transfer instructions with respect to its securities that are subject to the foregoing restriction until the end of such period, including any Holdback Extension Period.

 

Section 3.4.2      The Company shall not effect any public sale or distribution of its equity securities, or any securities, options or rights convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for such equity securities, during the seven days prior to and during the 180 day period beginning on the effective date of any underwritten Demand Registration or any underwritten Piggyback Registration (except as part of such underwritten registration or pursuant to registrations on Form S-4 or Form S-8 or any successor form) or, in the event of a Holdback Extension Period, for such longer period until the end of such Holdback Extension Period, unless the underwriters managing such public offering otherwise agree.

Any Transfer or attempted Transfer of any Registrable Securities in violation of any provision of this Agreement shall be void, and the Company shall not record such Transfer on its books or treat any purported transferee of such securities as the owner of such securities for any purpose. Other than in the case of a Permitted Transfer, whether or not any such transferee has executed a counterpart hereto, such transferee shall be subject to the obligations of the transferor hereunder.

The Company shall indemnify and hold harmless, to the full extent permitted by law, each Holder, each shareholder, member, limited or general partner of such Holder, each shareholder, member, limited or general partner of each such shareholder, member, limited or general partner, each of their respective Affiliates, officers, directors, managers, shareholders, employees, advisors, and agents and each Person who controls (within the meaning of the Securities Act or the Exchange Act) or is deemed to control such Persons and each of their respective Representatives from and against any and all losses, penalties, judgments, suits, costs, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses, joint or several (including reasonable costs of investigation and legal expenses and any indemnity and contribution payments made to underwriters ) (each, a “Loss” and collectively “Losses”) arising out of or based upon (i) (A) any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any Registration Statement under which such Registrable Securities are registered or sold under the Securities Act (including any final, preliminary or summary Prospectus contained therein or any amendment thereof or supplement thereto or any documents incorporated by reference therein), or (B) any omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein (in the case of a Prospectus or preliminary Prospectus, in light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading, (ii) any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any other disclosure document produced by or on behalf of the Company or any of its subsidiaries including any report and other document filed under the Exchange Act or (iii) any violation or alleged violation by the Company or any of its subsidiaries of any federal, state, provincial, foreign or common law rule or regulation applicable to the Company or any of its subsidiaries and relating to action or inaction in connection with any such registration, disclosure document or other document or report; provided, that no selling Holder shall be entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Section 3.9.1 in respect of any untrue statement or omission or any misrepresentation contained in any information relating to such selling Holder furnished in writing by such selling Holder to the Company specifically for inclusion in a Registration Statement, and used by the Company in conformity therewith (such information, “Selling Holder Information”). This indemnity shall be in addition to any liability the Company may otherwise have. Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of such Holder or any indemnified party and shall survive the Transfer of such securities by such Holder and regardless of any indemnity agreed to in the underwriting agreement that is less favorable to the Holders. The Company shall also indemnify underwriters, selling brokers, dealer managers and similar securities industry professionals participating in the distribution, their officers and directors and each Person who controls such Persons (within the meaning of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act) to the same extent as provided above (with appropriate modification) with respect to the indemnification of the indemnified parties.

 

Section 3.9.2          Indemnification by the Selling Holders. Each selling Holder agrees (severally and not jointly) to indemnify and hold harmless, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the Company, its Directors and officers and each Person who controls (within the meaning of the Securities Act or the Exchange Act) or is deemed to control the Company from and against any Losses resulting from (i) (A) any untrue statement of a material fact in any Registration Statement under which such Registrable Securities were registered or sold under the Securities Act (including any final, preliminary or summary Prospectus contained therein or any amendment thereof or supplement thereto or any documents incorporated by reference therein) or (B) any omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein (in the case of a Prospectus or preliminary Prospectus, in light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading, to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement or omission or such misrepresentation is contained in such selling Holder’s Selling Holder Information. In no event shall the liability of any selling Holder hereunder be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the proceeds from the sale of its Registrable Securities in the offering giving rise to such indemnification obligation, net of underwriting discounts and commissions but before expenses, less any amounts paid by such Holder pursuant to Section 3.9.4 and any amounts paid by such Holder as a result of liabilities incurred under the underwriting agreement, if any, related to such sale.

Section 3.9.3          Conduct of Indemnification Proceedings. Any Person entitled to indemnification hereunder shall (a) give prompt written notice to the indemnifying party of any claim with respect to which it seeks indemnification (provided that any delay or failure to so notify the indemnifying party shall relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations hereunder only to the extent, if at all, that it forfeits substantive legal rights by reason of such delay or failure) and (b) permit such indemnifying party to assume the defense of such claim with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party; provided, however, that any Person entitled to indemnification hereunder shall have the right to select and employ separate counsel and to participate in the defense of such claim, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such Person unless (i) the indemnifying party has agreed in writing to pay such fees or expenses, (ii) the indemnifying party shall have failed to assume the defense of such claim within a reasonable time after receipt of notice of such claim from the Person entitled to indemnification hereunder and employ counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Person, (iii) the indemnified party has reasonably concluded (based upon advice of its counsel) that there may be legal defenses available to it or other indemnified parties that are different from or in addition to those available to the indemnifying party, or (iv) in the reasonable judgment of any such Person (based upon advice of its counsel) a conflict of interest may exist between such Person and the indemnifying party with respect to such claims (in which case, if the Person notifies the indemnifying party in writing that such Person elects to employ separate counsel at the expense of the indemnifying party, the indemnifying party shall not have the right to assume the defense of such claim on behalf of such Person). If the indemnifying party assumes the defense, the indemnifying party shall not have the right to settle such action without the consent of the indemnified party. No indemnifying party shall consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement which does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such indemnified party of an unconditional release from all liability in respect to such claim or litigation without the prior written consent of such indemnified party. If such defense is not assumed by the indemnifying party, the indemnifying party will not be subject to any liability for any settlement made without its prior written consent, but such consent may not be unreasonably withheld. It is understood that the indemnifying party or parties shall not, except as specifically set forth in this Section 3.9.3, in connection with any proceeding or related proceedings in the same jurisdiction, be liable for the reasonable fees, disbursements or other charges of more than one separate firm admitted to practice in such jurisdiction at any one time unless (x) the employment of more than one counsel has been authorized in writing by the indemnifying party or parties, (y) an indemnified party has reasonably concluded (based on the advice of counsel) that there may be legal defenses available to it that are different from or in addition to those available to the other indemnified parties or (z) a conflict or potential conflict exists or may exist (based upon advice of counsel to an indemnified party) between such indemnified party and the other indemnified parties, in each of which cases the indemnifying party shall be obligated to pay the reasonable fees and expenses of such additional counsel or counsels.

Section 3.9.4          Contribution. If for any reason the indemnification provided for in Section 3.9.1 and Section 3.9.2 is unavailable to an indemnified party or insufficient in respect of any Losses referred to therein (other than as a result of exceptions or limitations on indemnification contained in Section 3.9.1 and Section 3.9.2), then the indemnifying party shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by the indemnified party as a result of such Loss in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the indemnifying party on the one hand and the indemnified party or parties on the other hand in connection with the acts, statements or omissions that resulted in such Losses, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative fault of the indemnifying party on the one hand and the indemnified party on the other hand shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or misrepresentation or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the indemnifying party or by the indemnified party, and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement, misrepresentation or omission. The parties hereto agree that it would not be just or equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 3.9.4 were determined by pro rata allocation or by any other method of allocation that does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to in this Section 3.9.4. No Person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any Person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation. The amount paid or payable by an indemnified party as a result of the Losses referred to in Sections 3.9.1 and 3.9.2 shall be deemed to include, subject to the limitations set forth above, any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by such indemnified party in connection with investigating or defending any such action or claim. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 3.9.4, in connection with any Registration effected pursuant to this Agreement, a selling Holder shall not be required to contribute any amount in excess of the dollar amount of the proceeds from the sale of its Registrable Securities in the offering giving rise to such indemnification obligation, net of underwriting discounts and commissions but before expenses, less any amounts paid by such Holder pursuant to Section 3.9.2 and any amounts paid by such Holder as a result of liabilities incurred under the underwriting agreement, if any, related to such Registration. If indemnification is available under this Section 3.9, the indemnifying parties shall indemnify each indemnified party to the full extent provided in Sections 3.9.1 and 3.9.2 hereof without regard to the provisions of this Section 3.9.4. The remedies provided for in this Section 3.9 are not exclusive and shall not limit any rights or remedies which may otherwise be available to any indemnified party at law or in equity.

 

Section 3.9.5          Priority. The Company hereby acknowledges and agrees that any Person entitled to indemnification pursuant to Section 3.9.1 (a “Company Indemnitee”) may have certain rights to indemnification, advancement of expenses and/or insurance provided by other sources. The Company hereby acknowledges and agrees (i) that it is the indemnitor of first resort (i.e., its obligations to a Company Indemnitee are primary and any obligation of such other sources to advance expenses or to provide indemnification for the same expenses or liabilities incurred by such Company Indemnitee are secondary) and (ii) that it shall be required to advance the full amount of expenses incurred by a Company Indemnitee and shall be liable for the full amount of all expenses, judgments, penalties, fines and amounts paid in settlement to the extent legally permitted and as required by the terms of this Agreement without regard to any rights a Company Indemnitee may have against such other sources. The Company further agrees that no advancement or payment by such other sources on behalf of a Company Indemnitee with respect to any claim for which such Company Indemnitee has sought indemnification, advancement of expenses or insurance from the Company shall affect the foregoing, and that such other sources shall have a right of contribution and/or be subrogated to the extent of such advancement or payment to all of the rights of recovery of such Company Indemnitee against the Company.

The Borrower agrees to pay (or cause to be paid) to each Revolving Lender set forth on Schedule D, an upfront fee equal to 1.00% of the amount opposite such Revolving Lender’s name on Schedule D (the “Upfront Fee”). The Upfront Fee shall be earned, due and payable on the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date. The Borrower agrees that, once paid, the fees or any part thereof earned, due and payable hereunder shall not be refundable under any circumstances. All fees earned, due and payable hereunder shall be paid in U.S. Dollars in immediately available funds and shall be in addition to any reimbursement of expenses to the extent reimbursable pursuant to this Agreement. In addition, all such payments shall be made without deduction for any taxes, levies, imposts, duties, deductions, charges or withholdings imposed by any national, state or local taxing authority, or will be grossed up by the Borrower for such amounts. At the discretion of the Revolving Lenders, the Revolving Lenders may share all or any portion of any fees with any of their affiliates or any other Revolving Lender or Revolving Lenders.

 

7.             Notice. For purposes of the Credit Agreement, to the extent not already a Lender, the initial notice address of each 2021-1 New Revolving Credit Loan Lender shall be as set forth below its signature below.

11.            Amendment, Modification and Waiver. This Agreement may not be amended, modified or waived except by an instrument or instruments in writing signed and delivered on behalf of each of the parties required in accordance with Section 13.1 of the Credit Agreement.

 

12.            Entire Agreement. This Agreement, the Credit Agreement and the other Credit Documents constitute the entire agreement among the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersede all other prior agreements and understandings, both written and verbal, among the parties or any of them with respect to the subject matter hereof.

 

13.            GOVERNING LAW. THIS AGREEMENT AND THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES HEREUNDER SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED AND INTERPRETED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

 

14.            Severability. Any provision of this Agreement that is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions hereof, and any such prohibition or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.

 

15.            Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed by one or more of the parties to this Agreement on any number of separate counterparts (including by facsimile or other electronic transmission), and all of said counterparts taken together shall be deemed to be originals and shall constitute one and the same instrument. A set of the copies of this Agreement signed by all the parties shall be lodged with the Borrower and the Administrative Agent. The words “execution”, “signed”, “signature”, “delivery” and words of like import in or relating to this Agreement and/or any document to be signed in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be deemed to include Electronic Signatures (as defined below), deliveries or the keeping of records in electronic form, each of which shall be of the same legal effect, validity or enforceability as a manually executed signature, physical delivery thereof or the use of a paper-based recordkeeping system, as the case may be. “Electronic Signatures” means any electronic symbol or process attached to, or associated with, any contract or other record and adopted by a person with the intent to sign, authenticate or accept such contract or record.

16.            Post-Closing Covenant. The Borrower agrees that it will deliver, or will cause to be delivered, to the Administrative Agent the items described on Schedule C annexed hereto by the times specified on such Schedule C with respect to such items, or such later time as the Administrative Agent may agree in its reasonable discretion. All conditions precedent, covenants and representations and warranties contained in this Agreement and the other Credit Documents shall be deemed modified to the extent necessary to the effect the foregoing (and to permit the taking of the actions described on Schedule C within the time periods required by this Section 15, rather than as elsewhere provided in the Credit Documents).

 

17.            Effect of this Agreement. Except as expressly set forth herein, this Agreement shall not by implication or otherwise limit, impair, constitute a waiver of or otherwise affect the rights and remedies of the Lenders or the Agents under the Credit Agreement or any other Credit Document, and shall not alter, modify, amend or in any way affect any of the terms, conditions, obligations, covenants or agreements contained in the Credit Agreement or any other provision of the Credit Agreement or any other Credit Document, all of which are ratified and affirmed in all respects and shall continue in full force and effect. This Agreement shall not constitute a novation of the Credit Agreement as in effect immediately prior to giving effect hereto or any of the Credit Documents. By executing and delivering a copy hereof, the Borrower hereby consents to the terms of this Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby and hereby confirms its prior pledges and grants of security interests, as applicable, under and subject to the terms of each of the Credit Documents to which it is party, and agrees that, after giving effect to this Agreement, such pledges and grants of security interests, and the terms of each of the Security Documents, shall continue to be in full force and effect, including to secure the Obligations (including, without limitation, the 2021-1 New Revolving Credit Loans established hereunder). For the avoidance of doubt, on and after the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date, this Agreement shall for all purposes constitute a Credit Document.

 

18.            Reallocation of Letter of Credit Exposure. Upon the effectiveness of the 2021-1 New Revolving Credit Commitments on the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date, each existing Revolving Lender immediately prior thereto will automatically and without further act be deemed to have assigned to the New 2021-1 Revolving Loan Lenders, and the New 2021-1 Revolving Loan Lenders will automatically and without further act be deemed to have assumed, a portion of such existing Revolving Lender’s participations under the Credit Agreement in outstanding Letters of Credit such that, after giving effect to the New 2021-1 Revolving Credit Commitments on the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date and each such deemed assignment and assumption of participations, each such existing Revolving Lender and the New 2021-1 Revolving Loan Lenders hold a percentage of the aggregate outstanding participations in Letters of Credit in accordance with its pro rata share.
