Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
4.625% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2026
General
On November 10, 2017, Entegris, Inc. (the “Company”) issued $550,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 4.625% senior unsecured notes due February 10, 2026 (the “2026 Notes”). The 2026 Notes were issued under an indenture dated as of November 10, 2017 (the “2026 Notes Indenture”) by and among the Company, certain subsidiaries of the Company and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee (the “2026 Notes Trustee”). Interest on the 2026 Notes is payable semi-annually in arrears on February 15 and August 15 of each year, commencing on February 15, 2018.
Guarantees
The 2026 Notes will be guaranteed, jointly and severally, fully and unconditionally, on a senior unsecured basis, by the Company’s existing and future domestic subsidiaries, other than certain excluded subsidiaries, to the extent that such entities guarantee indebtedness under the Company’s senior secured term loan facility and senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility (together, the “Senior Secured Credit Facilities”) or any other subsidiary of the Company to the extent it incurs certain additional indebtedness (collectively, the “Guarantors”).
Ranking
The 2026 Notes and the guarantees thereof are the Company’s and the Guarantors’ senior unsecured obligations, respectively, and will (i) rank equally in right of payment with all of the Company’s and the Guarantors’ existing and future senior indebtedness; (ii) rank senior to any subordinated indebtedness that the Company or the Guarantors may incur; (iii) be effectively subordinated to all of the Company’s or the Guarantors’ existing and future secured indebtedness (including its Senior Secured Credit Facilities), in each case, to the extent of the value of the assets securing such indebtedness; and (iv) be structurally subordinated in right of payment to all existing and future obligations of the Company’s subsidiaries that do not guarantee the 2026 Notes.
Optional Redemption
At any time prior to November 10, 2020, the Company may, at its option, on any one or more occasions, redeem up to 40% of the aggregate principal amount of the 2026 Notes, at a redemption price equal to 104.625% of the principal amount of the 2026 Notes redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but not including, the date of redemption, with an amount of cash equal to the net cash proceeds of an equity offering, as defined in the 2026 Notes Indenture, by the Company; provided that (1) at least 60% of the aggregate principal amount of 2026 Notes issued under the 2026 Notes Indenture remains outstanding immediately after the occurrence of each such redemption; and (2) the redemption occurs within 120 days of the date of the closing of such equity offering.
Additionally, at any time prior to November 10, 2020, the 2026 Notes may be redeemed, in whole or in part, at the option of the Company, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the 2026 Notes redeemed, plus a “make whole” premium, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the applicable redemption date.
On or after November 10, 2020, the Company may on any one or more occasions redeem all or a part of the 2026 Notes, at its option, at the redemption prices (expressed as percentages of principal amount) set forth below, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the 2026 Notes redeemed, to, but not including, the applicable date of redemption, if redeemed during the 12-month period beginning on November 10 of the years indicated below:






Year

2021
102.313%
2022
101.156%
2023 and thereafter

Upon the occurrence of certain change of control events accompanied by certain ratings events, the Company will be required to offer to repurchase all of the outstanding 2026 Notes at a purchase price of 101% of the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the date of repurchase.
Certain Covenants
The 2026 Notes Indenture that governs the 2026 Notes contains covenants that, among other things, limit the Company’s ability and/or the ability of the Company’s subsidiaries to:
incur liens;
engage in sale and leaseback transactions; and
consolidate, merge with or convey, transfer or lease all or substantially all of the Company’s or our subsidiaries’ assets to another person.
The 2026 Notes Indenture also, subject to certain exceptions, limits the ability of any non-Guarantor subsidiary of the Company to incur indebtedness.
These covenants are subject to a number of other limitations and exceptions as set forth in the 2026 Notes Indenture.
Events of Default
The 2026 Notes Indenture provides for events of default which, if certain of them occur, would permit the 2026 Notes Trustee or the holders of at least 25% in aggregate principal amount of the then outstanding 2026 Notes to declare the principal, premium, if any, interest and any other monetary obligations on all the then-outstanding 2026 Notes to be due and payable immediately.
The foregoing description of the 2026 Notes Indenture and the 2026 Notes is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete terms and conditions of the 2026 Notes Indenture, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 4.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The redemption price of the 2022 Notes was equal to 104.500% of the principal amount of the 2022 Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the date of redemption.

All things necessary to make the Notes, when executed by the Issuer and authenticated and delivered hereunder and duly issued by the Issuer, the valid and legally binding obligations of the Issuer and to make this Indenture a valid and legally binding agreement of the Issuer, in accordance with their and its terms, have been done.

In addition, (i) any Future Escrow Debt shall be deemed to not constitute Aggregate Net Availability Debt and (ii) any Permitted Revolving Indebtedness shall be deemed to not constitute Aggregate Net Availability Debt.

Such instrument or instruments (and the action embodied therein and evidenced thereby) are herein sometimes referred to as the “Act” of the Holders signing such instrument or instruments.

In any case where notice to Holders is given by mail, neither the failure to mail such notice, nor any defect in any notice so mailed, to any particular Holder shall affect the sufficiency of such notice with respect to other Holders.

If the Issuer elects to give the Trustee e-mail or facsimile instructions (or instructions by a similar electronic method) and the Trustee in its discretion elects to act upon such instructions, the Trustee’s understanding of such instructions shall be deemed controlling. The Trustee shall not be liable for any losses, costs or expenses arising directly or indirectly from the Trustee’s reliance upon and compliance with such instructions notwithstanding that such instructions conflict or are inconsistent with a subsequent written instruction. The Issuer agrees to assume all risks arising out of the use of such electronic methods to submit instructions and directions to the Trustee, including without limitation the risk of the Trustee acting on unauthorized instructions, and the risk or interception and misuse by third parties.
In case by reason of the suspension of or irregularities in regular mail service or by reason of any other cause, it shall be impracticable to mail notice of any event to Holders when such notice is required to be given pursuant to any provision of this Indenture, then any manner of giving such notice as shall be satisfactory to the Trustee shall be deemed to be a sufficient giving of such notice for every purpose hereunder.
Where this Indenture provides for notice in any manner, such notice may be waived in writing by the Person entitled to receive such notice, either before or after the event, and such waiver shall

-30-



be the equivalent of such notice. Waivers of notice by Holders shall be filed with the Trustee, but such filing shall not be a condition precedent to the validity of any action taken in reliance upon such waiver.
Holders may communicate pursuant to TIA Section 312(b) with other Holders with respect to their rights under this Indenture or the Notes. The Issuer, the Guarantors, the Trustee, each Agent and any other Person shall have the protection of TIA Section 312(c).

The Trustee may rely on information provided to it and shall have no responsibility to verify or ensure the accuracy of such information. Neither the Note Registrar nor the Issuer will be required to register the transfer or exchange of any Notes selected for redemption (except, in the case of a Note to be redeemed in part, the portion of the Note not to be redeemed) or any Notes for a period of 15 days before a selection of Notes to be redeemed.
No service charge shall be made for any registration of transfer or exchange or redemption of Notes, but the Issuer may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any taxes, fees or

-36-



other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any registration of transfer or exchange of Notes, other than exchanges pursuant to Sections 202, 304, 906, 1013 or 1108 not involving any transfer.
SECTION 306.      Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost and Stolen Notes . If (a) any mutilated Note is surrendered to the Trustee, or (b) the Issuer and the Trustee receive evidence to their satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Note, and there is delivered to the Issuer and the Trustee such security or indemnity to save each of them harmless from any claim, loss, cost or liability resulting from such lost or stolen Note, then, in the absence of written notice to the Issuer or the Trustee that such Note has been acquired by a Protected Purchaser (as defined in Section 8-303 of the Uniform Commercial Code) (a “ Protected Purchaser ”), the Issuer shall execute and upon Issuer Order the Trustee shall authenticate and deliver, in exchange for any such mutilated Note or in lieu of any such destroyed, lost or stolen Note, a new Note of like tenor and principal amount, bearing a number not contemporaneously outstanding.
In case any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Note has become or is about to become due and payable, the Issuer in its discretion may, instead of issuing a new Note, pay such Note.
Upon the issuance of any new Note under this Section, the Issuer may require the payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in relation thereto and any other expenses (including the fees and expenses of the Trustee) connected therewith.
Every new Note issued pursuant to this Section in lieu of any mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Note shall constitute an original additional contractual obligation of the Issuer and each Guarantor, whether or not the mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Note shall be at any time enforceable by anyone, and shall be entitled to all benefits of this Indenture equally and proportionately with any and all other Notes duly issued hereunder.
The provisions of this Section are exclusive and shall preclude (to the extent lawful) all other rights and remedies with respect to the replacement or payment of mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Notes.
SECTION 307.      Payment of Interest; Interest Rights Preserved .
(a)      Interest on any Note which is payable, and is punctually paid or duly provided for, on any Interest Payment Date shall be paid to the Person in whose name such Note (or one or more Predecessor Notes) is registered at the close of business on the Regular Record Date for such interest at the office or agency of the Issuer maintained for such purpose pursuant to Section 1002; provided , however , that, subject to Section 301 hereof, each installment of interest may at the Issuer’s option be paid by mailing a check for such interest, payable to or upon the written order of the Person entitled thereto pursuant to Section 308, to the address of such Person as it appears in the Note Register; provided , however , that payment by wire transfer of immediately available funds shall be required with respect to principal of, premium on, if any, and interest on, all Notes in global form and all other Notes the Holders of which shall have provided wire transfer instructions to the Issuer and the Paying Agent at least ten days in advance of the applicable payment date.
(b)      Any interest on any Note which is payable, but is not punctually paid or duly provided for, on any Interest Payment Date shall forthwith cease to be payable to the Holder on the Regular Record Date by virtue of having been such Holder, and such defaulted interest and (to the extent lawful) interest on such defaulted interest at the rate borne by the Notes (such defaulted interest and

-37-



interest thereon herein collectively called “ Defaulted Interest ”) may be paid by the Issuer, at its election in each case, as provided in clause (1) or (2) below:
(1)      the Issuer may elect to make payment of any Defaulted Interest to the Persons in whose names the Notes (or their respective Predecessor Notes) are registered at the close of business on a Special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest, which shall be fixed in the following manner. The Issuer shall notify the Trustee in writing of the amount of Defaulted Interest proposed to be paid on each Note and the date of the proposed payment, and at the same time the Issuer shall deposit with the Trustee an amount of money equal to the aggregate amount proposed to be paid in respect of such Defaulted Interest or shall make arrangements satisfactory to the Trustee for such deposit prior to the date of the proposed payment, such money when deposited to be held in trust for the benefit of the Persons entitled to such Defaulted Interest as in this clause provided. Thereupon the Issuer shall fix a Special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest which shall be not more than 15 days and not less than 10 days prior to the date of the proposed payment and not less than 10 days after the receipt by the Trustee of the notice of the proposed payment. The Issuer shall promptly notify the Trustee of such Special Record Date, and in the name and at the expense of the Issuer, the Trustee shall cause notice of the proposed payment of such Defaulted Interest and the Special Record Date therefor to be given in the manner provided for in Section 107, not less than 10 days prior to such Special Record Date. Notice of the proposed payment of such Defaulted Interest and the Special Record Date therefor having been so given, such Defaulted Interest shall be paid to the Persons in whose names the Notes (or their respective Predecessor Notes) are registered at the close of business on such Special Record Date and shall no longer be payable pursuant to the following clause (2); or
(2)      the Issuer may make payment of any Defaulted Interest in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange on which the Notes may be listed, and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange, if, after written notice given by the Issuer to the Trustee of the proposed payment pursuant to this clause, such manner of payment shall be deemed practicable by the Trustee.
(c)      Subject to the foregoing provisions of this Section, each Note delivered under this Indenture upon registration of transfer of or in exchange for or in lieu of any other Note shall carry the rights to interest accrued and unpaid, and to accrue, which were carried by such other Note.
SECTION 308.      Persons Deemed Owners . Prior to the due presentment of a Note for registration of transfer, the Issuer, any Guarantor, the Trustee and any agent of the Issuer or the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name such Note is registered as the owner of such Note for the purpose of receiving payment of principal of (and premium, if any) and (subject to Sections 305 and 307) interest on such Note and for all other purposes whatsoever, whether or not such Note be overdue, and none of the Issuer, the Trustee or any agent of the Issuer or the Trustee shall be affected by notice to the contrary.
SECTION 309.      Cancellation . All Notes surrendered for payment, redemption, registration of transfer or exchange shall, if surrendered to any Person other than the Trustee, be delivered to the Trustee and shall be cancelled by the Trustee in accordance with its customary procedures. The Issuer may at any time deliver to the Trustee for cancellation any Notes previously authenticated and delivered hereunder which the Issuer may have acquired in any manner whatsoever, and may deliver to the Trustee (or to any other Person for delivery to the Trustee) for cancellation any Notes previously authenticated hereunder which the Issuer has not issued and sold, and all Notes so delivered shall be cancelled by the Trustee in accordance with its customary procedures. If the Issuer shall so acquire any of

-38-



the Notes, however, such acquisition shall not operate as a satisfaction of the indebtedness represented by such Notes unless and until the same are surrendered to the Trustee for cancellation. No Notes shall be authenticated in lieu of or in exchange for any Notes cancelled as provided in this Section, except as expressly permitted by this Indenture. All cancelled Notes held by the Trustee shall be disposed of by the Trustee in accordance with its customary procedures.
SECTION 310.      Computation of Interest . Interest on the Notes shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months.
SECTION 311.      Transfer and Exchange . The Notes shall be issued in registered form and shall be transferable only upon the surrender of a Note for registration of transfer. When a Note is presented to the Note Registrar or a co-registrar with a request to register a transfer, the Note Registrar shall register the transfer as requested if the requirements of this Indenture and Section 8-401(a) of the Uniform Commercial Code are met. When Notes are presented to the Note Registrar or a co-registrar with a request to exchange them for an equal principal amount of Notes of other denominations, the Note Registrar shall make the exchange as requested if the same requirements are met.
SECTION 312.      CUSIP, ISIN and Common Code Numbers . The Issuer in issuing the Notes may use CUSIP, ISINs and “Common Code” numbers (in each case, if then generally in use) in addition to serial numbers, and, if so, the Trustee shall use such CUSIP, ISINs and “Common Code” numbers in addition to serial numbers in notices of redemption, repurchase or other notices to Holders as a convenience to Holders; provided , however , that any such notice may state that no representation is made as to the correctness of such CUSIP, ISINs and “Common Code” numbers either as printed on the Notes or as contained in any notice of a redemption or repurchase or other notice and that reliance may be placed only on the serial or other identification numbers printed on the Notes, and any such redemption or repurchase or other notice shall not be affected by any defect in or omission of such numbers. The Issuer will promptly notify the Trustee in writing of any change in the CUSIP, ISINs and “Common Code” numbers applicable to the Notes.
SECTION 313.      Issuance of Additional Notes . The Issuer may issue additional Notes having identical terms and conditions to the Initial Notes issued on the Issue Date (the “ Additional Notes ”). The Initial Notes issued on the Issue Date and any Additional Notes subsequently issued shall be treated as a single class for all purposes under this Indenture; provided , however , that Additional Notes will not be issued with the same CUSIP, if any, as Initial Notes unless such Additional Notes are fungible with Initial Notes for U.S. Federal income tax purposes.

(i)      have become due and payable by reason of the giving of a notice of redemption pursuant to Section 1105 or otherwise, or
(ii)      will become due and payable by reason of the giving of a notice of redemption or otherwise within one year,
and the Issuer or any Guarantor, in the case of (i) or (ii) above, (x) has irrevocably deposited or caused to be deposited with the Trustee as trust funds in trust solely for the benefit of the Holders of the Notes, cash in U.S. dollars, non-callable Government Securities, or a combination thereof, in amounts as will be sufficient, without consideration of any reinvestment of interest to pay and discharge the entire Indebtedness on the Notes not delivered to the Trustee for cancellation, for principal of, premium on, if any and interest, if any, on, the Notes to the Stated Maturity or Redemption Date, as the case may be, and (y) solely in the case in which Government Securities are being deposited with the Trustee pursuant to the foregoing clause (x), deliver to the Trustee an opinion of a nationally recognized firm of independent public accountants, investment bank or appraisal firm stating that such amounts deposited are sufficient, without consideration of any reinvestment of interest, to pay and discharge the entire Indebtedness on the Notes not delivered to the Trustee for cancellation for principal of, premium on, if any, and interest, if any, on, the Notes to the Stated Maturity or Redemption Date;
(2)      in respect of clause (1)(B), no Default has occurred and is continuing on the date of the deposit (other than a Default resulting from the borrowing of funds to be applied to such deposit and any similar deposit relating to other Indebtedness and, in each case, the granting of Liens to secure such borrowings) and the deposit shall not result in a breach or violation of, or constitute a default under any other instrument to which the Issuer or any Guarantor is a party or by which the Issuer or any Guarantor is bound (other than with respect to the borrowing of funds to be applied concurrently to make the deposit required to effect such satisfaction and discharge and any similar concurrent deposit relating to other Indebtedness and, in each case, the granting of Liens to secure such borrowings);
(3)      the Issuer or any Guarantor has paid or caused to be paid all sums payable by it under this Indenture;
(4)      the Issuer has delivered irrevocable instructions to the Trustee under this Indenture to apply the deposited money toward the payment of such Notes at the Stated Maturity or on the Redemption Date, as the case may be; and

If the Trustee or Paying Agent is unable to apply any money or Government Securities in accordance with Section 401 by reason of any legal proceeding or by reason of any order or judgment of any court or governmental authority enjoining, restraining or otherwise prohibiting such application, the Issuer’s and any Guarantor’s obligations under this Indenture and the Notes shall be revived and reinstated as though no deposit had occurred pursuant to Section 401 until such time as the Trustee or Paying Agent is permitted to apply all such money or Government Securities in accordance with Section 401; provided , however , that if the Issuer has made any payment of principal of (and premium, if any) or interest on any Notes because of the reinstatement of its obligations, the Issuer shall be subrogated to the rights of the Holders of such Notes to receive such payment from the money or Government Securities held by the Trustee or Paying Agent.

(b)      Upon the effectiveness of a declaration under Section 502(a), such principal of and premium, if any, and interest will be due and payable immediately. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of an Event of Default arising under Section 501(9) with respect to the Issuer, any Subsidiary of the Issuer that is a Significant Subsidiary or any group of Subsidiaries of the Issuer that, taken together, would constitute a Significant Subsidiary, all Outstanding Notes will become due and payable immediately without further action or notice.

-43-



before a judgment or decree for payment of the money due has been obtained by the Trustee as hereinafter provided in this Article, rescind and annul such declaration and its consequences, so long as such rescission and annulment would not conflict with any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction and all amounts owing to the Trustee have been paid and (ii) waive an existing Default or Event of Default and its consequences hereunder (except a continuing Default in the payment of interest on, premium, if any, or the principal of any Outstanding Note held by a non-consenting Holder which has become due otherwise than by such declaration of acceleration); provided , however , that no such rescission or waiver shall affect any subsequent default or impair any right consequent thereon.

(1)      the Indebtedness or Guarantee that is the basis for such Event of Default has been discharged, or
(2)      the holders thereof have rescinded or waived the acceleration, notice or action (as the case may be) giving rise to such Event of Default, or

If Additional Interest is payable on the Notes, the Issuer shall provide an Officer’s Certificate to the Trustee on or before the Regular Record Date for each Interest Payment Date such Additional Interest is payable setting forth the accrual period and the amount of such Additional Interest payable. The Trustee may provide a copy of such Officer’s Certificate relating to Additional Interest to any holder upon request. Unless and until a Responsible Officer of the Trustee receives such a certificate, the Trustee may assume without inquiry that no such Additional Interest is payable. The Trustee shall not at any time be under any duty or responsibility to any Holder to determine whether any Additional Interest is payable, or with respect to the nature, extent, or calculation of the amount of any Additional Interest owed, or with respect to the method employed in such calculation of any Additional Interest. If the Issuer shall have paid Additional Interest directly to the persons entitled to it, the Issuer shall deliver to the Trustee an Officer’s Certificate setting forth the particulars of such payment.

-44-



SECTION 504.      Collection of Indebtedness and Suits for Enforcement by Trustee . The Issuer covenants that if:
(1)      default is made in the payment of any installment of interest on any Note when such interest becomes due and payable and such default continues for a period of 30 days, or

the Issuer will, upon demand of the Trustee, pay to the Trustee for the benefit of the Holders of such Notes, the whole amount then due and payable on such Notes for principal (and premium, if any) and interest, and interest on any overdue principal (and premium, if any) and, to the extent that payment of such interest shall be legally enforceable, upon any overdue installment of interest, at the rate borne by the Notes, and, in addition thereto, such further amount as shall be sufficient to cover the costs and expenses of collection, including the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Trustee, its agents and counsel.
If the Issuer fails to pay such amounts forthwith upon such demand, the Trustee, in its own name as trustee of an express trust, may institute a judicial proceeding for the collection of the sums so due and unpaid, may prosecute such proceeding to judgment or final decree and may enforce the same against the Issuer, any Guarantor or any other obligor upon the Notes and collect the moneys adjudged or decreed to be payable in the manner provided by law out of the property of the Issuer, any Guarantor or any other obligor upon the Notes, wherever situated.
If an Event of Default occurs and is continuing, the Trustee may in its discretion proceed to protect and enforce its rights and the rights of the Holders under this Indenture and the Note Guarantees by such appropriate judicial proceedings as the Trustee shall deem necessary to protect and enforce any such rights, including seeking recourse against any Guarantor, whether for the specific enforcement of any covenant or agreement in this Indenture or in aid of the exercise of any power granted herein, or to enforce any other proper remedy, including seeking recourse against any Guarantor.

(1)      to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of principal (and premium, if any) and interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Notes and to file such other papers or documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Trustee (including any claim for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Trustee, its agents and counsel) and of the Holders allowed in such judicial proceeding, and
(2)      to collect and receive any moneys or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same;

-45-



and any custodian, receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator, sequestrator or similar official in any such judicial proceeding is hereby authorized by each Holder to make such payments to the Trustee and, in the event that the Trustee shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Holders, to pay the Trustee any amount due it for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Trustee, its agents and counsel, and any other amounts due the Trustee under Section 607.
Nothing herein contained shall be deemed to authorize the Trustee to authorize or consent to or accept or adopt on behalf of any Holder any plan of reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition affecting the Notes or the rights of any Holder thereof, or to authorize the Trustee to vote in respect of the claim of any Holder in any such proceeding. The Trustee may, on behalf of the Holders, vote for the election of a trustee in bankruptcy or similar official and be a member of a creditors’ committee or other similar committee.

SECTION 507.      Application of Money Collected . Any money or property collected by the Trustee pursuant to this Article, or after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default any money or property distributable in respect of the Issuer’s or Guarantors’ obligations under this Indenture, shall be applied in the following order, at the date or dates fixed by the Trustee and, in case of the distribution of such money on account of principal (or premium, if any) or interest, upon presentation of the Notes and the notation thereon of the payment if only partially paid and upon surrender thereof if fully paid:

The maximum amount of Indebtedness that any Subsidiary of the Issuer may incur pursuant to this Section 1011 shall not be deemed to be exceeded, with respect to any outstanding Indebtedness, solely as a result of fluctuations in exchange rates or currency values.

(1)      the accreted value of the Indebtedness, in the case of any Indebtedness issued with original issue discount;
(2)      the principal amount of the Indebtedness, in the case of any other Indebtedness; and
(3)      in respect of Indebtedness of another Person secured by a Lien on the assets of the specified Person, the lesser of:
(A)      the fair market value of such assets at the date of determination; and
(B)      the amount of the Indebtedness of the other Person.
SECTION 1001.      Limitation on Sale and Leaseback Transactions .
(a)      The Issuer will not, nor will it permit any of its Subsidiaries to, enter into any arrangement with any other Person pursuant to which the Issuer or any of its Subsidiaries leases any Principal Property that has been or is to be sold or transferred by the Issuer or the Subsidiary to such other Person (a “ Sale and Leaseback Transaction ”).

(1)      temporary leases for a term, including renewals at the option of the lessee, of not more than three years;
(2)      leases between only the Issuer and a Subsidiary of the Issuer or only between Subsidiaries of the Issuer or leases with an Excluded Subsidiary for so long as it constitutes an Excluded Subsidiary;
(3)      leases where the proceeds from the sale of the subject property are at least equal to the fair market value (as determined in good faith by the Issuer) of the subject property and the Issuer applies an amount equal to the net proceeds of the sale to the retirement of long term Indebtedness or the purchase, construction, development, expansion or improvement of other property or equipment used or useful in its business, within 270 days of the closing date of such sale; provided that in lieu of applying such amount to the retirement of long-term Indebtedness, the Issuer may deliver Notes to the Trustee or other debt securities to the trustee of such long-term Indebtedness for cancellation; and
(4)      leases of property executed by the time of, or within 270 days after the latest of, the acquisition, the completion of construction, development, expansion or improvement, or the commencement of commercial operation, of the subject property.
(c)      Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Issuer and its Subsidiaries may enter into any Sale and Leaseback Transaction that would otherwise be subject to the restrictions set forth in the first paragraph above, if after giving effect thereto and at the date of determination, Aggregate Net Availability Debt does not exceed the greatest of (a) $685.0 million, (b) 15% of the Consolidated Net Tangible Assets

In the Change of Control Offer, the Issuer will offer a price in cash (the “ Change of Control Payment ”) equal to 101.00% of the aggregate principal amount of Notes repurchased plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the Notes repurchased to, but not including the date of purchase, subject to the rights of Holders of record on the relevant Regular Record Date to receive interest due on an Interest Payment Date that is on or prior to the Change of Control Payment Date.

(1)      that, unless the Issuer defaults in the payment of the Change of Control Payment, all Notes accepted for payment pursuant to the Change of Control Offer shall cease to accrue interest on the Change of Control Payment Date;
(2)      if such notice is delivered prior to the occurrence of a Change of Control Repurchase Event, stating that the Change of Control Offer is conditional on the occurrence of such Change of Control Repurchase Event and if applicable, shall state that, in the Issuer’s discretion, the Change of Control Payment Date may be delayed until such time as the Change of Control Repurchase Event shall occur, or that such redemption may not occur and such notice may be rescinded in the event that the Issuer shall determine that such condition will not be satisfied by the Change of Control Payment Date, or by the Change of Control Payment Date as so delayed; and
(3)      the other instructions, as determined by the Issuer, consistent with this Section 1013, that a Holder must follow.
(b)      The Issuer shall comply with the requirements of Rule 14e-1 under the Exchange Act and any other securities laws and regulations thereunder to the extent those laws and regulations are applicable in connection with the repurchase of the Notes as a result of a Change of Control Repurchase Event. To the extent that the provisions of any securities laws or regulations conflict with the provisions of this Section 1013, the Issuer shall comply with the applicable securities laws and regulations and shall not be deemed to have breached its obligations under this Section 1013 by virtue of such compliance, and the foregoing procedures will be deemed modified as necessary to permit such compliance.

(2)      deposit with the Paying Agent an amount equal to the Change of Control Payment in respect of all Notes or portions of Notes properly tendered and not withdrawn and
(3)      deliver, or cause to be delivered, to the Trustee the Notes properly accepted together with an Officer’s Certificate stating the aggregate principal amount of Notes or portions of Notes being purchased by the Issuer.

The Issuer shall publicly announce the results of the Change of Control Offer on or as soon as practicable after the Change of Control Payment Date.
(e)      The Issuer shall not be required to make a Change of Control Offer following a Change of Control Repurchase Event if (1) a third party makes the Change of Control Offer in the manner, at the times and otherwise in compliance with the requirements set forth in this Indenture applicable to a Change of Control Offer made by the Issuer and purchases all such Notes properly tendered and not withdrawn under such Change of Control Offer, or (2) a notice of redemption has been given pursuant to Article Four or Article Eleven at any time prior to 30 days following any Change of Control Repurchase Event, unless and until there is a Default in the payment of the applicable redemption price. Notwithstanding anything else herein, a Change of Control Offer may be made in advance of a Change of Control Repurchase Event, conditioned upon the consummation of such Change of Control, if a definitive agreement is in place for the Change of Control at the time of the making of such Change of Control Offer.

If the Redemption Price is not known at the time such notice is to be given, the actual Redemption Price, calculated as described in the terms of the Notes, will be set forth in an Officer’s Certificate delivered to the Trustee no later than two Business Days prior to the Redemption Date.

No Notes with a principal amount of $2,000 or less can be redeemed in part. Notices of redemption shall be delivered by electronic submission (for Notes held in book-entry form) or first class mail, at least 10 but not more than 60 days before the Redemption Date to each Holder of Notes to be redeemed at such Holder’s registered address, except that redemption notices may be mailed or sent more than 60 days prior to a Redemption Date if the notice is issued in connection with a defeasance of the Notes or a satisfaction and discharge of this Indenture. If any Note is to redeemed in part only, any notice of redemption that relates to such Note shall state the portion of the principal amount thereof that has been or is to be redeemed.
If any Notes are to be redeemed in part only, the Issuer shall issue a new Note (or cause to be transferred by book entry) in principal amount equal to the unredeemed portion of the original Note in the name of the Holder thereof upon cancellation of the original Note. Notes called for redemption become due on the date fixed for redemption, subject to the satisfaction of any applicable conditions.

-72-



Holder will receive, without charge, a new Note or Notes of authorized denominations for the principal amount thereof remaining unredeemed,
(5)      that on the Redemption Date the Redemption Price (and accrued interest, if any, to the Redemption Date payable as provided in Section 1107) will become due and payable upon each such Note, or the portion thereof, to be redeemed, and that, if the redemption occurs, interest thereon will cease to accrue on and after said date,
(6)      any condition precedent to the redemption;
(7)      the place or places where such Notes are to be surrendered for payment of the Redemption Price and accrued interest, if any,

(11)      the clause of Section 1101 and/or the paragraph of the Notes pursuant to which the Notes are to be redeemed.
Any redemption may, at the Issuer’s discretion, be subject to one or more conditions precedent, which shall be set forth in the related notice of redemption, including, but not limited to, completion of an Equity Offering, other offering or other transaction or event. In addition, if such redemption is subject to satisfaction of one or more conditions precedent, such notice shall describe each such condition, and if applicable, shall state that, in the Issuer’s discretion, the Redemption Date may be delayed until such time as any or all such conditions shall be satisfied, or such redemption may not occur and such notice may be rescinded in the event that any or all such conditions shall not have been satisfied by the Redemption Date, or by the Redemption Date as so delayed.
If any such condition precedent has not been satisfied, the Issuer shall provide written notice to the Trustee prior to the close of business two Business Days prior to the Redemption Date (or such shorter period as may be acceptable to the Trustee). Upon receipt of such notice, the notice of redemption shall be rescinded or delayed, and the redemption of the Notes shall be rescinded or delayed as provided in such notice. Upon receipt, the Trustee shall provide such notice to each Holder in the same manner in which the notice of redemption was given.
The Issuer or its Affiliates may acquire Notes by means other than a redemption, whether by tender offer, open market purchases, negotiated transactions or otherwise, so long as such acquisition does not otherwise violate the terms of this Indenture.
SECTION 1106.      Deposit of Redemption Price . No later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) on any Redemption Date, the Issuer shall deposit with the Trustee or with a Paying Agent (or, if the Issuer is acting as its own Paying Agent, segregate and hold in trust as provided in Section 1003) an amount of money sufficient to pay the Redemption Price of, and accrued interest on, all the Notes which are to be redeemed on that date.

-73-



SECTION 1107.      Notes Payable on Redemption Date . Notice of redemption having been given to the Holders in accordance with Section 1105, the Notes so to be redeemed shall, on the Redemption Date, become due and payable, unless such redemption is conditioned on the happening of a future event, at the Redemption Price therein specified (together with accrued interest to the Redemption Date), and from and after such date (unless the Issuer shall default in the payment of the Redemption Price and accrued interest) such Notes shall cease to bear interest. Upon surrender of any such Note for redemption in accordance with said notice, the Redemption Price for such Note , together with accrued interest to the Redemption Date, shall be paid by the Issuer and such Notes shall be canceled by the Trustee; provided , however , that installments of interest whose Stated Maturity is on or prior to the Redemption Date shall be payable to the Holders of such Notes, or one or more Predecessor Notes, registered as such at the close of business on the relevant Regular Record Dates according to their terms and the provisions of Section 307.
If the Redemption Price for any Note called for redemption, together with accrued interest to the Redemption Date, shall not be so paid upon surrender thereof for redemption, the principal (and premium, if any) shall, until paid, bear interest from the Redemption Date at the rate borne by the Notes, unless such redemption is conditioned on the happening of a future event.
SECTION 1108.      Notes Redeemed in Part . Any Note which is to be redeemed only in part (pursuant to the provisions of this Article) shall be surrendered at an office or agency of the Issuer maintained for such purpose pursuant to Section 1002 (with, if the Issuer or the Trustee so requires, due endorsement by, or a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Issuer and the Trustee duly executed by, the Holder thereof or such Holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing), and the Issuer shall execute, and the Trustee shall authenticate and deliver (or transfer by book entry) to the Holder of such Note without service charge, a new Note or Notes, of any authorized denomination as requested by such Holder, in aggregate principal amount equal to and in exchange for the unredeemed portion of the principal of the Note so surrendered.

GUARANTEES
SECTION 1201.      Note Guarantees . Subject to this Article Twelve, each Guarantor hereby jointly and severally, fully and unconditionally Guarantees, on a senior basis, the Notes and Obligations of the Issuer hereunder and thereunder, and Guarantees to each Holder of a Note authenticated and delivered by the Trustee, and to the Trustee for itself and on behalf of such Holder, that: (1) the principal of (and premium, if any) and interest on the Notes will be paid in full when due, whether at Stated Maturity, by acceleration or otherwise (including the amount that would become due but for the operation of the automatic stay under Section 362(a) of the Bankruptcy Law), together with interest on the overdue principal, if any, and interest on any overdue interest, to the extent lawful, and all other obligations of the Issuer to the Holders or the Trustee hereunder or thereunder will be paid in full or performed, all in accordance with the terms hereof and thereof; and (2) in case of any extension of time of payment or renewal of any Notes or of any such other obligations, the same shall be paid in full when due or performed in accordance with the terms of the extension or renewal, whether at Stated Maturity, by acceleration or otherwise, subject, however, in the case of clauses (1) and (2) above, to the limitation set forth in Section 1204 hereof.
Each Guarantor hereby agrees (to the extent permitted by applicable law) that its obligations hereunder shall be unconditional, irrespective of the validity, regularity or enforceability of the Notes or this Indenture, the absence of any action to enforce the same, any waiver or consent by any

-74-



Holder with respect to any provisions hereof or thereof, any release of any other Guarantor, the recovery of any judgment against the Issuer, any action to enforce the same or any other circumstance which might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge or defense of a Guarantor.
Each Guarantor hereby waives (to the extent permitted by law) the benefits of diligence, presentment, demand for payment, filing of claims with a court in the event of insolvency or bankruptcy of the Issuer, any right to require a proceeding first against the Issuer or any other Person, protest, notice and all demands whatsoever and covenants that the Note Guarantee of such Guarantor shall not be discharged as to any Note except by complete performance of the obligations contained in such Note, this Indenture and such Note Guarantee. Each Guarantor acknowledges that the Note Guarantee is a Guarantee of payment, performance and compliance when due and not of collection. Each of the Guarantors hereby agrees that, in the event of a default in payment of principal (or premium, if any) or interest on such Note, whether at its Stated Maturity, by acceleration, purchase or otherwise, legal proceedings may be instituted by the Trustee on behalf of, or by, the Holder of such Note, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Indenture, directly against each of the Guarantors to enforce such Guarantor’s Note Guarantee without first proceeding against the Issuer or any other Guarantor. Each Guarantor agrees that if, after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Trustee or any of the Holders are prevented by applicable law from exercising their respective rights to accelerate the Maturity of the Notes, to collect interest on the Notes or to enforce or exercise any other right or remedy with respect to the Notes, such Guarantor shall pay to the Trustee for the account of the Holder the amount that would otherwise have been due and payable had such rights and remedies been permitted to be exercised by the Trustee or any of the Holders.
If any Holder or the Trustee is required by any court or otherwise to return to the Issuer or any Guarantor, or any custodian, trustee, liquidator or other similar official acting in relation to either the Issuer or any Guarantor, any amount paid by any of them to the Trustee or such Holder, the Note Guarantee of each of the Guarantors, to the extent theretofore discharged, shall be reinstated in full force and effect. Each Guarantor further agrees that, as between each Guarantor, on the one hand, and the Holders and the Trustee on the other hand, (1) subject to this Article Twelve, the Maturity of the obligations Guaranteed hereby may be accelerated as provided in Article Five hereof for the purposes of the Note Guarantee of such Guarantor notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition preventing such acceleration in respect of the obligations Guaranteed hereby, and (2) in the event of any acceleration of such obligation as provided in Article Five hereof, such obligations (whether or not due and payable) shall forthwith become due and payable by each Guarantor for the purpose of the Note Guarantee of such Guarantor.
Each Note Guarantee shall remain in full force and effect and continue to be effective should any petition be filed by or against the Issuer for liquidation, reorganization, should the Issuer become insolvent or make an assignment for the benefit of creditors or should a receiver or trustee be appointed for all or any significant part of the Issuer’s assets, and shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time payment and performance of the Notes are, pursuant to applicable law, rescinded or reduced in amount, or must otherwise be restored or returned by any obligee on the Notes, whether as a “voidable preference”, “fraudulent transfer” or otherwise, all as though such payment or performance had not been made. In the event that any payment or any part thereof, is rescinded, reduced, restored or returned, the Notes shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, be reinstated and deemed reduced only by such amount paid and not so rescinded, reduced, restored or returned.

-75-



SECTION 1202.      Severability . In case any provision of any Note Guarantee shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby to the extent permitted by applicable law.
SECTION 1203.      Additional Guarantors . The Issuer shall cause any Subsidiary required to Guarantee payment of the Notes pursuant to the terms and provisions of Section 1011 to execute and deliver to the Trustee any amendment pursuant to Section 901(7) or supplement to this Indenture (in the case of such supplement, substantially in the form of Exhibit A) in accordance with the provisions of Article Nine of this Indenture pursuant to which such Subsidiary shall Guarantee all of the obligations on the Notes, whether for principal, premium, if any, interest (including interest accruing after the filing of, or which would have accrued but for the filing of, a petition by or against the Issuer under any Bankruptcy Law, whether or not such interest is allowed as a claim after such filing in any proceeding under such law) and other amounts due in connection therewith (including any fees, expenses and indemnities), on an unsecured senior basis. Upon the execution of any such amendment or supplement, the obligations of the Guarantors and any such Subsidiary under their respective Note Guarantees shall become joint and several and each reference to the “Guarantor” in this Indenture shall, subject to Section 1208, be deemed to refer to all Guarantors, including such Subsidiary. Such Note Guarantee shall be released in accordance with Section 803 and Section 1208.
SECTION 1204.      Limitation of Guarantors’ Liability . Each Guarantor and by its acceptance hereof each Holder confirms that it is the intention of all such parties that the Guarantee by each such Guarantor pursuant to its Note Guarantee not constitute a fraudulent transfer or conveyance for purposes of the Bankruptcy Law, the Uniform Fraudulent Conveyance Act, the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act or any similar federal or state law or the provisions of its local law relating to fraudulent transfer or conveyance. To effectuate the foregoing intention, the Holders and each such Guarantor hereby irrevocably agree that the obligations of such Guarantor under its Note Guarantee shall be limited to the maximum amount that will not, after giving effect to all other contingent and fixed liabilities of such Guarantor and after giving effect to any collections from or payments made by or on behalf of any other Guarantor in respect of the obligations of such other Guarantor under its Note Guarantee or pursuant to this Section 1204, result in the obligations of such Guarantor under its Note Guarantee constituting such fraudulent transfer or conveyance.
SECTION 1205.      Contribution . In order to provide for just and equitable contribution among the Guarantors, the Guarantors agree, inter se , that in the event any payment or distribution is made by any Guarantor (a “ Funding Guarantor ”) under a Note Guarantee, such Funding Guarantor shall be entitled to a contribution from all other Guarantors in a pro rata amount based on the Adjusted Net Assets (as defined below) of each Guarantor (including the Funding Guarantor) for all payments, damages and expenses incurred by that Funding Guarantor in discharging the Issuer’s obligations with respect to the Notes or any other Guarantor’s obligations with respect to the Note Guarantee of such Guarantor. “ Adjusted Net Assets ” of such Guarantor at any date shall mean the lesser of (1) the amount by which the fair value of the property of such Guarantor exceeds the total amount of liabilities, including contingent liabilities (after giving effect to all other fixed and contingent liabilities incurred or assumed on such date), but excluding liabilities under the Note Guarantee of such Guarantor at such date and (2) the amount by which the present fair salable value of the assets of such Guarantor at such date exceeds the amount that will be required to pay the probable liability of such Guarantor on its debts (after giving effect to all other fixed and contingent liabilities incurred or assumed on such date), excluding debt in respect of the Note Guarantee of such Guarantor, as they become absolute and matured.
SECTION 1206.      Subrogation . Each Guarantor shall be subrogated to all rights of Holders against the Issuer in respect of any amounts paid by any Guarantor pursuant to the provisions of

-76-



Section 1201; provided , however , that, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, no Guarantor shall be entitled to enforce or receive any payments arising out of, or based upon, such right of subrogation until all amounts then due and payable by the Issuer under this Indenture or the Notes shall have been paid in full.
SECTION 1207.      Reinstatement . Each Guarantor hereby agrees (and each Person who becomes a Guarantor shall agree) that the Note Guarantee provided for in Section 1201 shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time, payment, or any part thereof, of any obligations or interest thereon is rescinded or must otherwise be restored by a Holder to the Issuer upon the bankruptcy or insolvency of the Issuer or any Guarantor.
SECTION 1208.      Release of a Guarantor . Any Note Guarantee by a Guarantor of the Notes shall be automatically and unconditionally released and discharged upon:

The undersigned represents and warrants to you that:
1.    We are an institutional “accredited investor” (as defined in Rule 501(a)(1), (2), (3) or (7) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”)), purchasing for our own account or for the account of such an institutional “accredited investor” at least $250,000 principal amount of the Notes, and we are acquiring the Notes not with a view to, or for offer or sale in connection with, any distribution in violation of the Securities Act. We have such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of our investment in the Notes, and we invest in or purchase securities similar to the Notes in the normal course of our business. We, and any accounts for which we are acting, are each able to bear the economic risk of our or its investment.
2.    We understand that the Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act and, unless so registered, may not be sold except as permitted in the following sentence. We agree on our own behalf and on behalf of any investor account for which we are purchasing Notes to offer, sell or otherwise transfer such Notes prior to the date that is one year after the later of the date of original issue and the last date on which the Issuer or any affiliate of the Issuer was the owner of such Notes (or any





predecessor thereto) (the “Resale Restriction Termination Date”) only (i) to the Issuer, (ii) pursuant to a registration statement that has been declared effective under the Securities Act, (iii) in a transaction complying with the requirements of Rule 144A under the Securities Act (“Rule 144A”), to a person we reasonably believe is a qualified institutional buyer under Rule 144A (a “QIB”) that is purchasing for its own account or for the account of a QIB and to whom notice is given that the transfer is being made in reliance on Rule 144A, (iv) pursuant to offers and sales that occur outside the United States within the meaning of Regulation S under the Securities Act, (v) to an institutional “accredited investor” within the meaning of Rule 501(a)(1), (2), (3) or (7) under the Securities Act that is purchasing for its own account or for the account of such an institutional “accredited investor,” in each case in a minimum principal amount of Securities of $250,000, or (vi) pursuant to any other available exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, subject in each of the foregoing cases to any requirement of law that the disposition of our property or the property of such investor account or accounts be at all times within our or their control and in compliance with any applicable state securities laws. The foregoing restrictions on resale will not apply subsequent to the Resale Restriction Termination Date. If any resale or other transfer of the Notes is proposed to be made pursuant to clause (v) above prior to the Resale Restriction Termination Date, the transferor shall deliver a letter from the transferee substantially in the form of this letter to the Issuer and the Trustee, which shall provide, among other things, that the transferee is an institutional “accredited investor” within the meaning of Rule 501(a)(1), (2), (3) or (7) under the Securities Act and that it is acquiring such Notes for investment purposes and not for distribution in violation of the Securities Act. Each purchaser acknowledges that the Issuer and the Trustee reserve the right prior to the offer, sale or other transfer prior to the Resale Restriction Termination Date of the Notes pursuant to clause (iv), (v) or (vi) above to require the delivery of an opinion of counsel, certifications or other information satisfactory to the Issuer and the Trustee.
