To the fullest extent consistent with applicable laws and regulations, all DIP Term Loans made under this Section 2.01(c) shall constitute a single tranche and be fungible with each other. The Credit Parties acknowledge and agree that neither the Borrower, Bird OpCo nor any other Credit Party has any defense, counterclaim or setoff with respect to the payment thereof.

All DIP Term Loan proceeds shall be used for working capital and general corporate purposes of Parent or any of its Subsidiaries, in each case in accordance with the Initial Approved Budget. (b) Each DIP Term Lender’s obligation shall be several, such that the failure of any DIP Term Lender to make available to the Borrower any funds in connection with any DIP Term Loan shall not relieve any other DIP Term Lender of its obligation, if any, hereunder to make funds available on the date such DIP Term Loans are requested (it being understood that no DIP Term Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other DIP Term Lender to make funds available to the Borrower in connection with any DIP Term Loan hereunder). (c) The outstanding principal amount of all applicable DIP Term Loans shall become immediately due and payable in full on the DIP Term Loan Maturity Date.

Principal payments shall continue in accordance with the Priority of Payments, except that notwithstanding the Priority of Payments, at the direction of the Borrower, optional payments by the Borrower may be applied first to the DIP Term Loans, second to the Rollup Amendment No. 1 Loans and third to the Rollup Bridge Loans. The Administrative Agent shall distribute to the Lenders (ratably, based on the amount then due and owing) any amounts received in respect of an optional prepayment in accordance with this Section 2.03(e). SECTION 2.04 Interest and Fees. (a) The DIP Term Loans and, upon the Rollup Effective Time, the Rollup Loans, shall accrue Interest on each day at the then applicable Interest Rate.

Interest shall be paid in accordance with the Priority of Payments. (b) The Borrower shall pay to each DIP Term Lender and the Administrative Agent certain fees (collectively, the “Fees”) in the amounts set forth in the fee letter agreements among the Borrower, the Lenders, and the Administrative Agent (each as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, a “Fee Letter”). SECTION 2.05 Records of Loans. Each Lender shall record in its records the date and amount of the Loans made by such Lender hereunder, the Interest Rate with respect thereto, the Interest accrued thereon, and each repayment and payment thereof.

such information or any error in so recording any such information shall not, however, limit or otherwise affect the obligations of the Borrower hereunder or under the other Transaction Documents to repay to each Lender the Loans, together with all Interest accruing thereon, and all other Borrower Obligations. SECTION 2.06 Grant of Lien; Super Priority Nature of Obligations and Lenders’ Liens. (a) Grant of Lien. Each Credit Party, as collateral security for the prompt and complete payment and performance when due (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) of the Borrower Obligations, hereby mortgages, pledges and hypothecates to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties, and grants to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, a Lien on and security interest in, all of its right, title and interest in, to and under the Collateral of such Credit Party, all as further provided in the DIP Orders. (b) Superpriority Claims.

To induce the Lenders to make the Loans and each other Secured Party to make credit available to or for the benefit of the Borrower, each Guarantor hereby, jointly and severally, absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees, as primary obligor and not merely as surety, the full and punctual payment when due, whether at stated maturity or earlier, by reason of acceleration, mandatory prepayment or otherwise in accordance with any Transaction Document or the DIP Orders, of all the Borrower Obligations of the Borrower and the other Credit Parties whether existing on the date hereof or hereinafter incurred or created (the “Guaranteed Obligations”). This guaranty by each Guarantor hereunder constitutes a guaranty of payment and not of collection. SECTION 2.08 Contribution. To the extent that a Guarantor shall be required hereunder to pay any portion of any Guaranteed Obligation exceeding the greater of (a) the amount of the value actually received by such Guarantor and its Subsidiaries from the Loans and other Borrower Obligations and (b) the amount such Guarantor would otherwise have paid if such Guarantor had paid the aggregate amount of the Guaranteed Obligations (excluding the amount thereof repaid by such Guarantor that received the benefit of the funds advanced that constituted Guaranteed Borrower Obligations) in the same proportion as such Guarantor’s net worth on the date enforcement is sought hereunder bears to the aggregate net worth of all Credit Parties on such date, then such Guarantor shall be reimbursed by such other Credit Parties for the amount of such excess, pro rata, based on the respective net worth of such other Credit Parties on such date. SECTION 2.09 Authorization; Other Agreement. The Secured Parties are hereby authorized, without notice to or demand upon any Guarantor and without discharging or otherwise affecting the obligations of any Guarantor hereunder and without incurring any liability hereunder, from time to time, to do each of the following: (a) (i) subject to compliance, if applicable, with Section 14.01, modify, amend, supplement or otherwise change, (ii) accelerate or otherwise change the time of payment or (iii) waive or otherwise consent to noncompliance with, any Guaranteed Obligation or any Transaction Document; (b) apply to the Guaranteed Obligations any sums by whomever paid or however realized to any Guaranteed Obligation in such order as provided in the Transaction Documents; (c) refund at any time any payment received by any Secured Party in respect of any Guaranteed Obligation; 29 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 76 of 381

SECTION 2.11 Waivers. Each Credit Party hereby unconditionally and irrevocably waives and agrees not to assert any claim, defense, setoff or counterclaim based on diligence, promptness, presentment, requirements for any demand or notice hereunder including any of the following: (a) any demand for payment or performance and protest and notice of protest; (b) any notice of acceptance; (c) any presentment, demand, protest or further notice or other requirements of any kind with respect to any Guaranteed 30 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 77 of 381

Each Credit Party further unconditionally and irrevocably agrees not to (x) enforce or otherwise exercise any right of subrogation or any right of reimbursement or contribution or similar right against the Borrower or any other Credit Party by reason of any Transaction Document or any payment made thereunder or (y) assert any claim, defense, setoff or counterclaim it may have against any other Credit Party or set off any of its obligations to such other Credit Party against obligations of such Credit Party to such Credit Party. No obligation of any Credit Party hereunder shall be discharged other than by complete performance. SECTION 2.12 Reliance. Each Credit Party hereby assumes responsibility for keeping itself informed of the financial condition of each other Credit Party and any other guarantor, maker or endorser of any Guaranteed Obligation or any part thereof, and of all other circumstances bearing upon the risk of nonpayment of any Guaranteed Obligation or any part thereof that diligent inquiry would reveal, and each Credit Party hereby agrees that no Secured Party shall have any duty to advise any Credit Party of information known to it regarding such condition or any such circumstances. In the event any Secured Party, in its sole discretion, undertakes at any time or from time to time to provide any such information to any Credit Party, such Secured Party shall be under no obligation to (a) undertake any investigation not a part of its regular business routine, (b) disclose any information that such Secured Party, pursuant to accepted or reasonable commercial finance or banking practices, wishes to maintain confidential or (c) make any future disclosures of such information or any other information to any Credit Party.

(c) If and to the extent the Administrative Agent, any Lender, any Affected Person or any Borrower Indemnified Party shall be required for any reason to pay over to any Person (including any Credit Party or any trustee, receiver, custodian or similar official in any Insolvency Proceeding) any amount received on its behalf hereunder, such amount shall be deemed not to have been so received but rather to have been retained by the Borrower and, accordingly, the Administrative Agent, such Lender, such Affected 32 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 79 of 381


 
Person or such Borrower Indemnified Party, as the case may be, shall have a claim against the Borrower for such amount. SECTION 4.02 Payments and Computations. Etc.

Whenever any payment or deposit to be made hereunder shall be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment or deposit shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension of time shall be included in the computation of such payment or deposit. (d) All payments (including prepayments) to be made by each Credit Party on account of principal, interest, fees and other amounts required hereunder shall be made without set-off, recoupment, counterclaim or deduction of any kind, shall, except as otherwise expressly provided herein, be made to the Administrative Agent (for the ratable account of the Persons entitled thereto) at the address for payment specified in the signature page hereof in relation to the Administrative Agent (or such other address as the Administrative Agent may from time to time specify), including payments utilizing the ACH system, and shall be made in U.S. dollars and by wire transfer in immediately available funds (which shall be the exclusive means of payment hereunder). ARTICLE V INCREASED COSTS; FUNDING LOSSES; TAXES; ILLEGALITY SECTION 5.01 Increased Costs. (a) Increased Costs Generally. If any Change in Law shall: (i) impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, liquidity, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended or participated in by, any Affected Person; (ii) subject any Affected Person to any Taxes (except to the extent such Taxes are (A) Indemnified Taxes for which relief is sought under Section 5,03, (B) Taxes described in clause (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes or (C) Other Connection Taxes that are imposed on or measured by net income (however denominated) or that are franchise Taxes or branch profits Taxes; the Taxes described in this parenthetical, “Covered Taxes”) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto; or (iii) impose on any Affected Person any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) (A) affecting the Collateral, this Agreement, any other Transaction Document, any Loan or any participation therein or (B) affecting its obligations or rights to make Loans; 33 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 80 of 381


 
and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Affected Person of (A) acting as the Administrative Agent or a Lender hereunder, (B) funding or maintaining any Loan or (C) maintaining its obligation to fund or maintain any Loan, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Affected Person hereunder, then, upon request of such Affected Person, the Borrower shall pay to such Affected Person such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Affected Person for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered. (b) Capital Adequacy. If any Lender shall reasonably determine that any Change in Law regarding capital adequacy, or the compliance by any Lender or any Person controlling such Lender with any request, guideline or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) of any such Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency adopted or otherwise taking effect after the Effective Date, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or such controlling Person’s capital as a consequence of such Lender’s obligations hereunder to a level below that which such Lender or such controlling Person could have achieved but for such Change in Law or compliance (taking into consideration such Lender’s or such controlling Person’s policies with respect to capital adequacy) then from time to time, upon demand by such Lender (which demand shall be accompanied by a certificate setting forth the basis for such demand and a calculation of the amount thereof in reasonable detail, a copy of which shall be furnished to the Administrative Agent), the Borrower shall promptly pay to such Lender such additional amount as will compensate such Lender or such controlling Person for such reduction, so long as such amounts have accrued on or after the day which is two hundred seventy (270) days prior to the date on which such Lender first made demand therefor. (c) [Reserved]. (d) Certificates for Reimbursement. A certificate of an Affected Person setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Affected Person or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in clause (a), (b) or (c) of this Section and delivered to the Borrower, shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower shall, subject to the priorities of payment set forth in Section 4,01. pay such Affected Person the amount shown as due on any such certificate on the first Payment Date occurring after the Borrower’s receipt of such certificate; provided, that any such certificate shall state the basis upon which such amount has been calculated and certify that such Affected Person’s method of allocation is not inconsistent with its method of allocation used for other trade receivable securitization facilities or debt facilities which are subject to similar provisions for which reimbursement is being sought. (e) Delay in Requests. Failure or delay on the part of any Affected Person to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Affected Person’s right to demand such compensation; provided, that the Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this Section 5,01 for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 180 days prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided, further, that if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 180 day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof. SECTION 5.02 [Reserved], SECTION 5.03 Taxes. (a) Payments Free of Taxes. All payments of principal and interest on the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for Taxes, except as required by Applicable Law. If any Applicable Law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable withholding agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by 34 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 81 of 381


 
the applicable withholding agent, then the applicable withholding agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law and if any such withholding or deduction is in respect of any Indemnified Taxes, then the Borrower or other Credit Party shall pay such additional amount or amounts as is necessary to ensure that the net amount actually received by the applicable Affected Person will equal the full amount such Affected Person would have received had no such withholding or deduction of Indemnified Taxes been required (including, without limitation, such withholdings and deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 5.03). After payment of any Tax by the Borrower to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 5,03, the Borrower shall promptly forward to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of an official receipt, a copy of the return reporting such payment, or other documentation satisfactory to the Administrative Agent evidencing such payment to such authority. (b) Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrower. The Borrower shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law, or, at the option of the Administrative Agent, timely reimburse the Administrative Agent for the payment of, any Other Taxes. (c) Indemnification by the Borrower. The Borrower shall indemnify the Administrative Agent and the Lenders, within ten (10) days after demand thereof, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 5,03) payable or paid by the Administrative Agent or any Lender or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to the Administrative Agent or any Lender and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes and Other Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate in reasonable detail as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrower by a Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error. (d) Status of Lenders. Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding tax with respect to payments made under any Transaction Document shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times prescribed by Applicable Law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by Applicable Law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Sections 5.03(d)(i), 5.03(d)(ii) and 5.03(f) below) shall not be required if in such Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.

During the Remedies Notice Period, the Credit Parties may not use the proceeds of Loans hereunder, or other Collateral proceeds except to the limited extent permitted by the DIP Orders. SECTION 10.03 Rights Not Exclusive. The rights provided for in this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents are cumulative and are not exclusive of any other rights, powers, privileges or remedies provided by law or in equity, or under any other instrument, document or agreement now existing or hereafter arising. ARTICLE XI THE ADMINISTOTIVE AGENT SECTION 11.01 Appointment and Authorization. Each Lender hereby irrevocably appoints and authorizes the Administrative Agent to enter into each of the Transaction Documents to which it is a party (other than this Agreement) on its behalf and to take such actions as the Administrative Agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers under the Transaction Documents as are delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms thereof, together with all such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. Subject to the terms of Section 14.01 and to the terms of the other Transaction Documents, the Administrative Agent is authorized and empowered to amend, modify, or waive any provisions of this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents on behalf of Lenders. Except for Sections 11.09, 11.12, and 11.14 the provisions of this Article XI are solely for the benefit of the Administrative Agent and Lenders and neither the Borrower nor any other Credit Party shall have any rights as a third party beneficiary of any of the provisions hereof. In performing its functions and duties under this Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall act solely as agent of Lenders and does not assume and shall not be deemed to have assumed any obligation toward or relationship of agency or trust with or for the Borrower or any other Credit Party. The Administrative Agent may perform any of its duties hereunder, or under the Transaction Documents, by or through its agents, servicers, trustees, investment managers or employees. SECTION 11.02 The Administrative Agent and Affiliates. The Administrative Agent shall have the same rights and powers under the Transaction Documents as any other Lender and may exercise or refrain from exercising the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent, and the Administrative 59 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 106 of 381


 
Agent and its Affiliates may lend money to, invest in and generally engage in any kind of business with each Credit Party or Affiliate of any Credit Party as if it were not the Administrative Agent hereunder. SECTION 11.03 Action by the Administrative Agent. The duties of the Administrative Agent shall be mechanical and administrative in nature. The Administrative Agent shall not have by reason of this Agreement a fiduciary relationship in respect of any Lender.

SECTION 11.04 Consultation with Experts. The Administrative Agent may consult with legal counsel, independent public accountants and other experts selected by it and shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it in good faith in accordance with the advice of such counsel, accountants or experts. SECTION 11.05 Liability of the Administrative Agent. Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its directors, officers, agents, trustees, investment managers, servicers or employees shall be liable to any Lender for any action taken or not taken by it in connection with the Transaction Documents, except that the Administrative Agent shall be liable with respect to its specific duties set forth hereunder but only to the extent of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct in the discharge thereof as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its directors, officers, agents, trustees, investment managers, servicers or employees shall be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain, inquire into or verify (a) any statement, warranty or representation made in connection with any Transaction Document or any borrowing hereunder; (b) the performance or observance of any of the covenants or agreements specified in any Transaction Document; (c) the satisfaction of any condition specified in any Transaction Document; (d) the validity, effectiveness, sufficiency or genuineness of any Transaction Document, any Lien purported to be created or perfected thereby or any other instrument or writing furnished in connection therewith; (e) the existence or non­ existence of any Event of Default or Potential Event of Default; or (f) the financial condition of any Credit Party. The Administrative Agent shall not incur any liability by acting in reliance upon any notice, consent, certificate, statement, or other writing (which may be a bank wire, facsimile or electronic transmission or similar writing) believed by it to be genuine or to be signed by the proper party or parties. The Administrative Agent shall not be liable for any apportionment or distribution of payments made by it in good faith and if any such apportionment or distribution is subsequently determined to have been made in error the sole recourse of any Lender to whom payment was due but not made, shall be to recover from other Lenders any payment in excess of the amount to which they are determined to be entitled (and such other Lenders hereby agree to return to such Lender any such erroneous payments received by them). SECTION 11.06 Indemnification. Each Lender shall, in accordance with its pro rata share of the total unfunded Commitment and funded Loans hereunder, indemnify the Administrative Agent (to the extent not reimbursed by the Borrower) upon demand against any cost, expense (including counsel fees and disbursements), claim, demand, action, loss or liability (except such as result from the Administrative Agent’s gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction) that the Administrative Agent may suffer or incur in connection with the Transaction Documents or any action taken or omitted by the Administrative Agent hereunder or thereunder. If any indemnity furnished to the Administrative Agent for any purpose shall, in the opinion of the Administrative Agent, be insufficient or become impaired, the Administrative Agent may call for additional indemnity and cease, or not commence, to do the acts indemnified against even if so directed by the Lenders until such additional indemnity is furnished. 60 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 107 of 381


 
SECTION 11.07 Right to Request and Act on Instructions. The Administrative Agent may at any time request instructions from Required DIP Lenders with respect to any actions or approvals which by the terms of this Agreement or of any of the Transaction Documents the Administrative Agent is permitted or desires to take or to grant, and if such instructions are promptly requested, the Administrative Agent shall be absolutely entitled to refrain from taking any action or to withhold any approval and shall not be under any liability whatsoever to any Person for refraining from any action or withholding any approval under any of the Transaction Documents until it shall have received such instructions from the Required DIP Lenders or all or such other portion of the DIP Term Lenders as shall be prescribed by this Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, no DIP Term Lender shall have any right of action whatsoever against the Administrative Agent as a result of the Administrative Agent acting or refraining from acting under this Agreement or any of the other Transaction Documents in accordance with the instructions of the Required DIP Lenders (or all or such other portion of the DIP Term Lenders as shall be prescribed by this Agreement) and, notwithstanding the instructions of the Required DIP Lenders (or such other applicable portion of the DIP Term Lenders), the Administrative Agent shall have no obligation to take any action if it believes, in good faith, that such action would violate Applicable Law or exposes the Administrative Agent to any liability for which it has not received satisfactory indemnification in accordance with the provisions of Section 11,06. SECTION 11.08 Credit Decision. Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement. Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking any action under the Transaction Documents. SECTION 11.09 Collateral Matters. The Lenders irrevocably authorize the Administrative Agent, at its option and in its discretion, to release any Lien granted to or held by the Administrative Agent under any Transaction Document (a) upon termination of the Loans and payment in full of all Borrower Obligations; or (b) constituting property sold or disposed of as part of or in connection with any disposition permitted under any Transaction Document, including pursuant to Section 8.01(s) (it being understood and agreed that the Administrative Agent may conclusively rely without further inquiry on a certificate of a Responsible Officer as to the sale or other disposition of property being made in full compliance with the provisions of the Transaction Documents). Upon request by the Administrative Agent at any time, Lenders will confirm the Administrative Agent’s authority to release particular types or items of Collateral pursuant to this Section 11,09. SECTION 11.10 Agency for Perfection. The Administrative Agent and each Lender hereby appoint each other Lender as agent for the purpose of perfecting the Administrative Agent’s security interest in assets which, in accordance with the Uniform Commercial Code in any applicable jurisdiction, can be perfected by possession or control. Should any Lender (other than the Administrative Agent) obtain possession or control of any such assets, such Lender shall notify the Administrative Agent thereof, and, promptly upon the Administrative Agent’s request therefor, shall deliver such assets to the Administrative Agent or in accordance with the Administrative Agent’s instructions or transfer control to the Administrative Agent in accordance with the Administrative Agent’s instructions. Each Lender agrees that it will not have any right individually to enforce or seek to enforce any security interest hereunder or to realize upon any Collateral for the Loans unless instructed to do so by the Administrative Agent (or consented to by the Administrative Agent), it being understood and agreed that such rights and remedies may be exercised only by the Administrative Agent. 61 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 108 of 381


 
SECTION 11.11 Notice of Default. The Administrative Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge or notice of the occurrence of any Potential Event of Default or Event of Default except with respect to defaults in the payment of principal, interest and fees required to be paid to the Administrative Agent for the account of Lenders, unless the Administrative Agent shall have received written notice from a Lender or a Credit Party referring to this Agreement, describing such Potential Event Default or Event of Default and stating that such notice is a “notice of default”. The Administrative Agent will notify each Lender of its receipt of any such notice. The Administrative Agent shall take such action with respect to such Potential Event of Default or Event of Default as may be requested by the Lenders (or all or such other portion of the Lenders as shall be prescribed by this Agreement) in accordance with the terms hereof. Unless and until the Administrative Agent has received any such request, the Administrative Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such Potential Event Default or Event of Default as it shall deem advisable or in the best interests of Lenders. SECTION 11.12 Assignment by the Administrative Agent; Resignation of the Administrative Agent; Successor the Administrative Agent. (a) The Administrative Agent may at any time assign its rights, powers, privileges and duties hereunder to (i) another Lender, or (ii) any Person to whom the Administrative Agent, in its capacity as a Lender, has assigned (or will assign, in conjunction with such assignment of agency rights hereunder) 50% or more of its Loans, in each case without the consent of the Lenders or the Borrower. Following any such assignment, the Administrative Agent shall give notice to the Lenders and the Borrower. An assignment by the Administrative Agent pursuant to this subsection (a) shall not be deemed a resignation by the Administrative Agent for purposes of subsection (b) below. (b) Without limiting the rights of the Administrative Agent to designate an assignee pursuant to subsection (a) above, the Administrative Agent may at any time give notice of its resignation to the Lenders and the Borrower. Upon receipt of any such notice of resignation, the Required DIP Lenders shall have the right to appoint a successor the Administrative Agent. If no such successor shall have been so appointed by the Required DIP Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within ten (10) Business Days after the retiring the Administrative Agent gives notice of its resignation, then the retiring the Administrative Agent may on behalf of the Required DIP Lenders, appoint a successor the Administrative Agent; provided, however, that if the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrower and the Required DIP Lenders that no Person has accepted such appointment, then such resignation shall nonetheless become effective in accordance with such notice from the Administrative Agent that no Person has accepted such appointment and, from and following delivery of such notice, (i) the retiring the Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder and under the other Transaction Documents, and (ii) all payments, communications and determinations provided to be made by, to or through the Administrative Agent shall instead be made by or to each Lender directly, until such time as the Required DIP Lenders appoint a successor the Administrative Agent as provided for above in this paragraph. (c) Upon (i) an assignment permitted by subsection (a) above, or (ii) the acceptance of a successor’s appointment as the Administrative Agent pursuant to subsection (b) above, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all of the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring (or retired) the Administrative Agent, and the retiring the Administrative Agent shall be discharged from all of its duties and obligations hereunder and under the other Transaction Documents (if not already discharged therefrom as provided above in this paragraph). The fees payable by the Borrower to a successor the Administrative Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between the Borrower and such successor. After the retiring the Administrative Agent’s resignation hereunder and under the other Transaction Documents, the provisions of this Article and Section 11,12 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring the Administrative Agent and its sub-agents in respect of any actions 62 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 109 of 381


 
taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while the retiring the Administrative Agent was acting or was continuing to act as the Administrative Agent. SECTION 11.13 Payment and Sharing of Payment. (a) On the date of any Credit Extension, the Administrative Agent, on behalf of Lenders, may elect to advance to the Borrower the full amount of the Loan to be made on such date prior to receiving funds from Lenders, in reliance upon each Lender’s commitment to make its Loan Commitment Percentage of the applicable Loan to the Borrower in a timely manner on such date. If the Administrative Agent elects to advance the applicable Loan to the Borrower in such manner, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to receive all interest that accrues on the date of any such Credit Extension on each Lender’s Loan Commitment Percentage of the applicable Loan unless the Administrative Agent receives such Lender’s Loan Commitment Percentage of the applicable Loan before 3:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on the date of any such Credit Extension. (b) It is understood that for purposes of advances to the Borrower made pursuant to this Section 11,13. the Administrative Agent will be using the funds of the Administrative Agent, and pending settlement, all interest accruing on such advances shall be payable to the Administrative Agent. (c) The provisions of this Section 11,13 shall be deemed to be binding upon the Administrative Agent and Lenders notwithstanding the occurrence of any Potential Event of Default or Event of Default, or any insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding pertaining to the Borrower or any other Credit Party. SECTION 11.14 Loan Payments. Payments of principal, interest and fees in respect of the Loans will be settled on the date of receipt if received by the Administrative Agent on the last Business Day of a month or on the Business Day immediately following the date of receipt if received on any day other than the last Business Day of a month. SECTION 11.15 Return of Payments. (a) If the Administrative Agent pays an amount to a Lender under this Agreement in the belief or expectation that a related payment has been or will be received by the Administrative Agent from the Borrower and such related payment is not received by the Administrative Agent, then the Administrative Agent will be entitled to recover such amount from such Lender on demand without setoff, counterclaim or deduction of any kind, together with interest accruing on a daily basis at the Lederal Lunds Rate. (b) If the Administrative Agent determines at any time that any amount received by the Administrative Agent under this Agreement must be returned to the Borrower or paid to any other Person pursuant to any insolvency law or otherwise, then, notwithstanding any other term or condition of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, the Administrative Agent will not be required to distribute any portion thereof to any Lender. In addition, each Lender will repay to the Administrative Agent on demand any portion of such amount that the Administrative Agent has distributed to such Lender, together with interest at such rate, if any, as the Administrative Agent is required to pay to the Borrower or such other Person, without setoff, counterclaim or deduction of any kind. SECTION 11.16 Sharing of Payments. If any Lender shall obtain any payment or other recovery (whether voluntary, involuntary, by application of setoff or otherwise) on account of the Loans (other than pursuant to the terms of Section 5.03(e)) in excess of its pro rata share of the total funded Loans hereunder of payments entitled pursuant to the other provisions of this Section 11.16, such Lender shall purchase from 63 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 110 of 381


 
the other Lenders such participations in extensions of credit made by such other Lenders (without recourse, representation or warranty) as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender to share the excess payment or other recovery ratably with each of them; provided, however, that if all or any portion of the excess payment or other recovery is thereafter required to be returned or otherwise recovered from such purchasing Lender, such portion of such purchase shall be rescinded and each Lender which has sold a participation to the purchasing Lender shall repay to the purchasing Lender the purchase price to the ratable extent of such return or recovery, without interest. The Borrower agrees that any Lender so purchasing a participation from another Lender pursuant to this Section 11.16 may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all its rights of payment (including pursuant to Section 14.16) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were the direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation). If under any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law, any Lender receives a secured claim in lieu of a setoff to which this Section 11.16 applies, such Lender shall, to the extent practicable, exercise its rights in respect of such secured claim in a manner consistent with the rights of the Lenders entitled under this Section 11.16 to share in the benefits of any recovery on such secured claim. SECTION 11.17 Right to Perform. Preserve, and Protect. If any Credit Party fails to perform any obligation hereunder or under any other Transaction Document, the Administrative Agent itself may, but shall not be obligated to, cause such obligation to be performed at the Borrower’s expense. The Administrative Agent is further authorized by the Borrower and the Lenders to make expenditures from time to time which the Administrative Agent, in its reasonable business judgment, deems necessary or desirable to (a) preserve or protect the business conducted by the Borrower, the Collateral, or any portion thereof, and/or (b) enhance the likelihood of, or maximize the amount of, repayment of the Loans and other Borrower Obligations. The Borrower hereby agrees to reimburse the Administrative Agent on demand for any and all costs, liabilities and obligations incurred by the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 11.17. Each Lender hereby agrees to indemnify the Administrative Agent upon demand for any and all costs, liabilities and obligations incurred by the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 11.17, in accordance with the provisions of Section 11.06. ARTICLE XII [RESER^h] ARTICLE XIII INDEMNIFICATION SECTION 13.01 Indemnities by the Borrower. (a) Without limiting any other rights that the Administrative Agent, the Lenders, the Affected Persons and their respective assigns, officers, directors, agents and employees (each, a “Borrower Indemnified Party”) may have hereunder or under Applicable Law, the Borrower hereby agrees to indemnify each Borrower Indemnified Party from and against any and all claims, losses and liabilities (including Attorney Costs (excluding the allocated costs of in house counsel and limited to not more than one firm of counsel for all such Borrower Indemnified Parties, taken as a whole, and, if necessary, a single local firm of counsel in each appropriate jurisdiction for all such Borrower Indemnified Parties, taken as a whole (and, in the case of an actual or perceived conflict of interest, of another firm of counsel for such affected Borrower Indemnified Party)) (all of the foregoing being collectively referred to as “Borrower Indemnified Amounts”) arising out of or resulting from this Agreement, any other Transaction Document or any Pre-Petition Transaction Document or the use of proceeds of the Loans or the security interest in respect of any of the Collateral; excluding, however, (i) Borrower Indemnified Amounts to the extent a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction holds that such Borrower Indemnified 64 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 111 of 381


 
Amounts resulted solely from the fraud, gross negligence or willful misconduct by the Borrower Indemnified Party seeking indemnification and (ii) Borrower Indemnified Amounts to the extent arising from a claim, action, litigation, investigation, or other proceeding that does not arise from any act or omission by any Credit Party or any officer, partner, director, trustee, employee, or agent of any Credit Party and that is brought by any Borrower Indemnified Party against another Borrower Indemnified Party (other than any such claim, action, litigation, investigation, or other proceeding brought against the Administrative Agent in its capacity as such). (b) [Reserved]. (c) If for any reason the foregoing indemnification is unavailable to any Borrower Indemnified Party or insufficient to hold it harmless, then the Borrower shall contribute to such Borrower Indemnified Party the amount paid or payable by such Borrower Indemnified Party as a result of such loss, claim, damage or liability in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative economic interests of the Borrower and its Affiliates on the one hand and such Borrower Indemnified Party on the other hand in the matters contemplated by this Agreement as well as the relative fault of the Borrower and its Affiliates and such Borrower Indemnified Party with respect to such loss, claim, damage or liability and any other relevant equitable considerations. The reimbursement, indemnity and contribution obligations of the Borrower under this Section shall be in addition to any liability which the Borrower may otherwise have, shall extend upon the same terms and conditions to each Borrower Indemnified Party, and shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of any successors, assigns, heirs and personal representatives of the Borrower and the Borrower Indemnified Parties. (d) Any indemnification or contribution under this Section shall survive the termination of this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the indemnity provided pursuant to this Section 13,01 and Section 14,04 shall not apply to claims for Indemnified Taxes or Excluded Taxes. ARTICLE XIV MISCELLANEOUS SECTION 14.01 Amendments. Etc. (a) No provision of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document may be amended, waived or otherwise modified unless such amendment, waiver or other modification is in writing and is signed or otherwise approved by Borrower and the Required DIP Lenders (and, if any amendment, waiver or other modification would either increase a Lender’s Commitment, by such Lender and (y) the rights or duties of Administrative Agent are affected thereby, by Administrative Agent); provided that no such amendment, waiver or other modification shall, unless signed by all Lenders directly affected thereby, (i) reduce the principal of, rate of interest (excluding, for the avoidance of doubt, any amendment, waiver or other modification to Article IX or the defined terms used therein, which shall be subject to the approval of Required DIP Lenders) on or any fees or prepayment premium with respect to any Loan or forgive any principal, interest or fees or prepayment premium with respect to any Loan (provided that this clause (i) shall not apply to the waiver of default interest); (ii) postpone or waive the date fixed for any payment of principal of any Loan or of interest on any Loan or any fees or prepayment premium hereunder or for any termination of any commitment; (iii) change the definition of the term Required DIP Lenders or the percentage of Lenders which shall be required for Lenders to take any action hereunder; (iv) release, or subordinate Administrative Agent’s lien in respect of, all or substantially all of the Collateral, authorize any Credit Party to sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of the Collateral, or release any Guarantor from all or any portion of its obligations under the Guaranty or any similar Transaction Document, except as otherwise may be provided in this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents (including, without 65 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 112 of 381


 
limitation, in connection with any disposition permitted hereunder); (v) amend, waive or otherwise modify either of Section 4.01(a), Section 11.16, this Section 14.01, Section 14.03 or the definitions of the terms used in such Sections insofar as the definitions affect the substance of such Sections; (vi) consent to the assignment, delegation or other transfer by any Credit Party of any of its rights and obligations under any Transaction Document or release any Credit Party of its payment obligations under any Transaction Document, except pursuant to a merger, consolidation or other transaction permitted pursuant to this Agreement (it being understood and agreed that all Lenders shall be deemed directly affected by an amendment, waiver or other modification of the type described in the preceding clauses (iii), (iv), (v) and (vi)), or (vii) change any provision in respect of any Credit Party or its Affiliates acquiring any interest in any of the Borrower Obligations.

In addition, the Transaction Documents and related documents executed by the Credit Parties in connection with this Agreement may be in a form reasonably determined by Administrative Agent and may be, together with this Agreement, amended and waived with the consent of Administrative Agent at the request of the Borrower without the need to obtain the consent of any other Lender solely to the extent such amendment or waiver is required in order (i) to comply with local law or (ii) to cause such Transaction Document or other document to be consistent with this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents. SECTION 14.02 Notices. Etc. All notices and other communications hereunder shall, unless otherwise stated herein, be in writing (which shall include facsimile and email communication) and faxed, emailed or delivered, to each party hereto, at its address set forth under its name on Schedule V hereto or at such other address, facsimile number or email address as shall be designated by such party in a written notice to the other parties hereto.

Each Lender may assign to any Eligible Assignee or to any other Lender all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including, but not limited to, (A) all or a portion of its unfunded Commitment hereunder without the necessity of transferring any portion of any Loan funded by such Lender or other obligations owed to it hereunder, or (B) all or a portion of any Loan funded by such Lender or other obligations owed to it hereunder without the necessity of transferring any portion of its unfunded Commitment hereunder); provided, however, that (i) except for an assignment by a Lender to either an Affiliate of such Lender or any other Lender, each such assignment shall require the prior written consent of the Borrower (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed); provided, that such consent shall be deemed to be given if the Borrower does not respond within five (5) Business Days of a request for consent; and provided, further, that such consent shall not be required if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing; (ii) each such assignment shall be of a constant, and not a varying, percentage of all rights and obligations under this Agreement; and 66 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 113 of 381


 
(iii) the parties to each such assignment shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent, for its acceptance and recording in the Register, an Assignment and Acceptance Agreement. Upon such execution, delivery, acceptance and recording from and after the effective date specified in such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, (x) the assignee thereunder shall be a party to this Agreement, and to the extent that rights and obligations under this Agreement have been assigned to it pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, have the rights and obligations of a Lender hereunder and (y) the assigning Lender shall, to the extent that rights and obligations have been assigned by it pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, relinquish such rights and be released from such obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Acceptance Agreement covering all or the remaining portion of an assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto). (b) Register. The Administrative Agent shall, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of the Borrower, maintain at its address referred to on Schedule V of this Agreement (or such other address of the Administrative Agent notified by the Administrative Agent to the other parties hereto) a copy of each Assignment and Acceptance Agreement delivered to and accepted by it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders, the Commitment of each Lender and the aggregate outstanding principal amount (and stated interest) of the Loans of each Lender from time to time (the “Register”). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error, and the Credit Parties, the Administrative Agent, and the Lenders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms of this Agreement as a Lender under this Agreement for all purposes of this Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Credit Parties or any Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. (c) Procedure. Upon its receipt of an Assignment and Acceptance Agreement executed and delivered by an assigning Lender and an Eligible Assignee or assignee Lender, the Administrative Agent shall, if such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement has been duly completed, (i) accept such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, (ii) record the information contained therein in the Register and (iii) give prompt notice thereof to the Credit Parties. (d) Participations. Each Lender may sell participations to one or more Eligible Assignees (each, a “Participant”) in or to all or a portion of its rights and/or obligations under this Agreement (including, without limitation, all or a portion of its Commitment or the interests in the Loans owned by it); provided, however, that (i) such Lender’s obligations under this Agreement (including, without limitation, its Commitment to the Borrower hereunder) shall remain unchanged, and (ii) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties to this Agreement for the performance of such obligations. The Administrative Agent, the Lenders, and the Credit Parties shall have the right to continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement. The Credit Parties agree that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 5,01 and 5,03 (subject to the requirements and limitations therein, including the requirements under Section 5.03(f) (it being understood that the documentation required under Section 5.03(f) shall be delivered to the participating Lender)) to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section; provided, that such Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 5,01 or 5,03, with respect to any participation, than its participating Lender would have been entitled to receive, except to the extent such entitlement to receive a 67 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 114 of 381


 
greater payment results from a Change in Law that occurs after the Participant acquired the applicable participation. (e) Participant Register. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Credit Parties, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each Participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under this Agreement (the “Participant Register”); provided, that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant’s interest in any Commitments, Loans or its other obligations under any this Agreement) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such Commitment, Loan or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5flO3-l(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations. The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. Lor the avoidance of doubt, the Administrative Agent (in its capacity as Administrative Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register. (f) Assignments by Administrative Agent. This Agreement and the rights and obligations of the Administrative Agent herein shall be assignable by the Administrative Agent and its successors and assigns; provided, that in the case of an assignment to a Person that is not an Affiliate of the Administrative Agent or a Lender, so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, such assignment shall require the Credit Parties’ consent (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). (g) Assignments by the Credit Parties. The Credit Parties may not assign any of their respective rights or obligations hereunder or any interest herein without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent and each Lender (such consent to be provided or withheld in the sole discretion of such Person). (h) Pledge to Secure Obligations of Lender. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, any Lender or any of their respective Affiliates may at any time pledge or grant a security interest in all or any portion of its interest in, to and under this Agreement and any other Transaction Document to secure obligations of such Lender to any Person providing any extension of credit or financial arrangement to or for the account of such Lender or any of its Affiliates and any agent, trustee, or representative of such Person (without notice to or the consent of the Credit Parties, any other Lender, or the Administrative Agent); provided, that no such pledge shall relieve such Lender of its obligations under this Agreement or substitute any such pledgee for such Lender as a party hereto.

actual or reasonably claimed breach of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document. In addition, the Borrower agrees to pay on demand all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including reasonable and documented Attorney Costs), of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders and their respective Affiliates, incurred in connection with the enforcement of any of their respective rights or remedies under the provisions of this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents.

SECTION 14.06 Confidentiality. (a) [reserved]. (b) Each of the Administrative Agent and each Lender, severally and with respect to itself only, agrees to hold in confidence, and not disclose to any Person, any confidential and proprietary information concerning the Credit Parties and their respective Affiliates and their businesses or the terms of this Agreement (including any fees payable in connection with this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents), except as the Credit Parties may have consented to in writing prior to any proposed disclosure; provided, however, that it may disclose such information (i) to its Advisors and Representatives, (ii) to its assignees and Participants and potential assignees and Participants and their respective counsel if they agree in writing to hold it confidential, (iii) to the extent such information has become available to the public other than as a result of a disclosure by or through it or its Representatives or Advisors, (iv) at the request of a bank examiner or other regulatory authority or in connection with an examination of any of the Administrative Agent or any Lender or their respective Affiliates or (v) to the extent it should be (A) required by Applicable Law, or in connection with any legal or regulatory proceeding or (B) requested by any Governmental Authority to disclose such information; provided, that in the case of clause (v) above, the Administrative Agent and each Lender will use reasonable efforts to maintain confidentiality and will (unless otherwise prohibited by Applicable Law) notify the Credit Parties of its making any such disclosure as promptly as reasonably practicable thereafter.

Immediately upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, all Obligations shall accrue interest at a per annum rate equal to 24.0% (the “Default Rate”). Payment or acceptance of the increased interest rate provided in this Section 2.2(b) is not a permitted alternative to timely payment and shall not constitute a waiver of any Event of Default or otherwise prejudice or limit any rights or remedies of the Purchasers. (c) 360-Day Year. Interest shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual number of days elapsed. (d) Payments. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments by the Issuer under the Note Documents shall be made to the respective Purchaser to which such payments are owed in immediately available funds on the date specified herein. Unless otherwise provided, interest is payable on each Interest Payment Date. Payments of principal and/or interest received after 12:00 noon Eastern time are considered received at the opening of business on the next Business Day. When a payment is due on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment is due the next Business Day and additional fees or interest, as applicable, shall continue to accrue until paid. All payments to be made by Issuer hereunder or under any other Note Document, including payments of principal and interest, and all fees, expenses, indemnities and reimbursements, shall be made without set-off, recoupment or counterclaim, in lawful money of the United States and in immediately available funds. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all interest on the principal amount outstanding under the Notes payable pursuant to this Section 2,2 shall be paid as paid-in-kind interest, and shall be added to the aggregate principal amount of the Note on the date such interest would otherwise be due hereunder (the amount of any such paid-in­ kind interest being “PIK Interest”). 2.3 Purchasers’ Expenses. The Issuer shall pay to the Purchasers all Purchasers’ Expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses for documentation and negotiation of this Agreement) incurred through and after the Closing Date, when due. 2.4 Collateral Agent Fees.

to make or cause to be made, on or about the Closing Date, or at the time of receipt of any payment of principal on such Purchaser’s Note, an appropriate notation on such Purchaser’s Note (the “Purchaser’s Note Record”) reflecting the purchase of such Notes or (as the case may be) the receipt of such payment. The outstanding amount of the Notes set forth on such Purchaser’s Note Record shall be, absent manifest error, prima facie evidence of the principal amount thereof owing and unpaid to such Purchaser, but the failure to record, or any error in so recording, any such amount on such Purchaser’s Note Record shall not limit or otherwise affect the obligations of Issuer under any Note or any other Note Document to make payments of principal of or interest on, any Note when due. Upon receipt of an affidavit of an officer of a Purchaser as to the loss, theft, destruction, or mutilation of its Note, the Issuer shall issue, in lieu thereof, a replacement Note in the same principal amount thereof and of like tenor. 3.

Any Note Document or Pre-Petition Note Document covering a material portion of the Collateral for any reason (other than pursuant to the terms thereof) ceases to create a valid and perfected Lien on, and security interest in, any material portion of the Collateral covered thereby with respect to the Notes, subject to Permitted Liens, except to the extent that any such perfection or priority is not required pursuant to the Note Documents or results from the failure of the Collateral Agent to maintain possession of certificates actually delivered to it representing securities pledged under the Note Documents. 9.8 Judgments. One or more final, non-appealable Post-Petition monetary judgments, orders or awards (or any settlement of any litigation or other proceeding that, if breached, could result in a judgment, order or award) for the payment of money exceeding $1.0 million in the aggregate (except to the extent fully covered (other than to the extent of customary deductibles) by insurance pursuant to which the insurer has been notified and has not denied coverage) shall be rendered against the Issuer or any of its Subsidiaries and remain unsatisfied and (i) enforcement 12640916-7 49 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 185 of 381

hereunder or under any other Note Document to be immediately due and payable; without presentment, demand, protest or other notice of any kind, all of which are hereby expressly waived by each Note Party; and/or (iii) subject to the terms of the Interim Order or Final Order, as applicable, direct the Collateral Agent to exercise all rights and remedies available to it and the Purchasers under the Notes Documents or applicable law; provided, however, the Collateral Agent shall (or its designee) not credit bid any portion of the Obligations without the consent of the Purchasers’ Representative. In addition, five (5) Business Days following the Termination Declaration Date (such 5 Business Day period, the “Remedies Notice Period”), absent the Note Parties curing all such existing Events of Default during such Remedies Notice Period, the Collateral Agent shall have automatic relief from the automatic stay and may foreclose on all or any portion of the Collateral, collect accounts receivable and apply the proceeds thereof to the Obligations, occupy the Note Parties’ premises to sell or otherwise dispose of the Collateral or otherwise exercise remedies against the Collateral permitted by applicable nonbankruptcy law. During the Remedies Notice Period, the Note Parties and any statutory committee shall be entitled to an emergency hearing before the Bankruptcy Court for the sole purpose of contesting whether an Event of Default has occurred. Unless during such period the Bankruptcy Court determines that an Event of Default has not occurred and/or is not continuing, the automatic stay, as to the Purchasers and the Collateral Agent, shall automatically terminate at the end of the Remedies Notice Period, without further notice or order. During the Remedies Notice Period, the Note Parties may not use the proceeds of Loans hereunder, or other Collateral proceeds except to the limited extent permitted by the DIP Orders. (b) Subj ect to Section 10.1(a) above and subj ect to the terms of the DIP Orders, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Required Purchasers may, without notice or demand, do any or all of the following: (i) direct the Collateral Agent to foreclose upon and/or sell or otherwise liquidate the Collateral; (ii) direct the Collateral Agent to make a demand for payment upon any Guarantor pursuant to the Guarantee delivered by such Guarantor; (iii) direct Collateral Agent to apply to the Obligations any (A) balances and deposits of Issuer that Collateral Agent or any Purchaser holds or controls, (B) any amount held or controlled by Collateral Agent or any Purchaser owing to or for the credit or the account of Issuer; and/or (iv) commence and prosecute an Insolvency Proceeding or consent to the Issuer commencing any Insolvency Proceeding. (c) Subj ect to Sections 10.1(a) and subj ect to the terms of the DIP Orders, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Collateral Agent shall have the right to, at the written direction of the Required Purchasers, without notice or demand, do any or all of the following: 12640916-7 53 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 189 of 381


 
(i) settle or adjust disputes and claims directly with Account Debtors for amounts on terms and in any order that Collateral Agent considers advisable, notify any Person owing Issuer money of Collateral Agent’s security interest in such funds, and verify the amount of such account; (ii) make any payments and do any acts it considers necessary or reasonable to protect the Collateral and/or its Liens in the Collateral (held for the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties). Issuer shall assemble the Collateral if Collateral Agent requests and make it available at such location as Collateral Agent reasonably designates. Collateral Agent (or its designee) may enter premises where the Collateral is located, take and maintain possession of any part of the Collateral, and pay, purchase, contest, or compromise any Lien which appears to be prior or superior to its security interest and pay all expenses incurred. Issuer grants Collateral Agent a license to enter and occupy any of its premises, without charge, to exercise any of Collateral Agent’s rights or remedies; (iii) ship, reclaim, recover, store, finish, maintain, repair, prepare for sale, and/or advertise for sale, any of the Collateral. Collateral Agent is hereby granted a non-exclusive, royalty-free license or other right to use, without charge, Issuer’s and each of its Subsidiaries’ labels, patents, copyrights, mask works, rights of use of any name, trade secrets, trade names, trademarks, service marks, and advertising matter, or any similar property as it pertains to the Collateral, in completing production of, advertising for sale, and selling any Collateral and, in connection with Collateral Agent’s exercise of its rights under this Section 10.1, Issuer’s and each of its Subsidiaries’ rights under all licenses and all franchise agreements inure to Collateral Agent, for the benefit of the Purchasers; (iv) place a “hold” on any Collateral Account maintained with Collateral Agent or any Purchaser or otherwise in respect of which a Control Agreement has been delivered in favor of Collateral Agent (for the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties) and/or deliver a notice of exclusive control, any entitlement order, or other directions or instructions pursuant to any Control Agreement or similar agreements providing control of any Collateral; (v) demand and receive possession or copies of the Issuer’s or any of its Subsidiaries’ books and records; (vi) appoint a receiver to seize, manage, and realize any of the Collateral, and such receiver shall have any right and authority as any competent court will grant or authorize in accordance with any Applicable Law, including any power or authority to manage the business of the Issuer or any Guarantor; (vii) sell or otherwise dispose of all or any part of the Issuer Pledged Collateral at a public or private sale or at any broker’s board or on any securities exchange, for cash, upon credit or for future delivery as the Collateral Agent (at the direction of the Required Purchasers) shall deem appropriate; and 12640916-7 54 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 190 of 381


 
(viii) subject to clauses (a) and (b) of this Section 10.1, exercise all rights and remedies available to the Collateral Agent and each Purchaser under the Note Documents or at law or equity, including all remedies provided under the Code (including disposal of the Collateral pursuant to the terms thereof). The Collateral Agent shall be authorized at any sale of securities (if it deems it advisable to do so) to restrict the prospective bidders or purchasers to Persons who will represent and agree that they are purchasing the Collateral for their own account for investment and not with a view to the distribution or sale thereof, and upon consummation of any such sale the Collateral Agent shall have the right to assign, transfer and deliver to the purchaser or purchasers thereof the Collateral so sold. The Collateral Agent shall give the Issuer no less than ten (10) days’ prior written notice of the Collateral Agent’s intention to make any sale of Collateral. Any such public sale shall be held at such time or times within ordinary business hours and at such place or places as the Collateral Agent may fix and state in the notice (if any) of such sale. At any such sale, the Collateral, or portion thereof, to be sold may be sold in one lot as an entirety or in separate parcels, as the Collateral Agent (at the direction of the Required Purchasers) may (in their sole and absolute discretion) determine. The Collateral Agent shall not be obligated to make any sale of any Collateral if it shall determine not to do so, regardless of the fact that notice of sale of such Collateral shall have been given. The Collateral Agent may, without notice or publication, adjourn any public or private sale or cause the same to be adjourned from time to time by announcement at the time and place fixed for sale, and such sale may, without further notice, be made at the time and place to which the same was so adjourned. In case any sale of all or any part of the Collateral is made on credit or for future delivery, the Collateral so sold may be retained by the Collateral Agent until the sale price is paid by the purchaser or purchasers thereof, but the Collateral Agent and the other Secured Parties shall not incur any liability in case any such purchaser or purchasers shall fail to take up and pay for the Collateral so sold and, in case of any such failure, such Collateral may be sold again upon like notice. At any public (or, to the extent permitted by law, private) sale made pursuant to this Agreement, any Secured Party may bid for or purchase, free (to the extent permitted by law) from any right of redemption, stay, valuation or appraisal on the part of the Issuer (all said rights being also hereby waived and released to the extent permitted by law), the Collateral or any part thereof offered for sale and may make payment on account thereof by using any claim then due and payable to such Secured Party from the Note Party as a credit against the purchase price, and such Secured Party may, upon compliance with the terms of sale, hold, retain and dispose of such property without further accountability to the Note Party therefor. As an alternative to exercising the power of sale herein conferred upon it, the Collateral Agent (at the direction of the Required Purchasers) may proceed by a suit or suits at law or in equity to foreclose this Agreement and to sell the Collateral or any portion thereof pursuant to a judgment or decree of a court or courts having competent jurisdiction or pursuant to a proceeding by a court-appointed receiver. Any sale pursuant to the provisions of this Section 10,01 shall be deemed to in accordance with any requirements under the Code. 10.2 Power of Attorney. Issuer hereby irrevocably appoints Collateral Agent as its lawful attorney-in-fact, exercisable upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, to: (a) endorse Issuer’s or any of its Subsidiaries’ name on any checks or other forms of payment or security; (b) sign Issuer’s or any of its Subsidiaries’ name on any invoice or bill of lading for any Account or drafts against Account Debtors; (c) settle and adjust disputes and claims about the Accounts of Issuer directly with the applicable Account Debtors, for amounts and on 12640916-7 55 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 191 of 381


 
terms Collateral Agent determines reasonable; (d) make, settle, and adjust all claims under Issuer’s insurance policies; (e) pay, contest or settle any Lien, charge, encumbrance, security interest, and adverse claim in or to the Collateral, or any judgment based thereon, or otherwise take any action to terminate or discharge the same; and (f) transfer the Collateral into the name of Collateral Agent or a third party as the Code or any applicable law permits (including by filing assignment agreements with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, United States Copyright Office or equivalent in any jurisdiction outside of the United States). Issuer hereby appoints Collateral Agent as its lawful attorney-in-fact to sign Issuer’s or any of its Subsidiaries’ name on any documents necessary to perfect or continue the perfection of Collateral Agent’s security interest in the Collateral regardless of whether an Event of Default has occurred until all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations) have been satisfied in full and Purchasers are under no further obligation to purchase Notes hereunder. Collateral Agent’s foregoing appointment as Issuer’s or any of its Subsidiaries’ attorney in fact, and all of Collateral Agent’s rights and powers, coupled with an interest, are irrevocable until all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations) have been fully repaid and performed and the Purchasers’ obligation to purchase the Notes terminates. 10.3 Protective Payments. If Issuer or any of its Subsidiaries fail to obtain the insurance called for by Section 7,4 or fails to pay any premium thereon or fails to pay any other amount which Issuer or any of its Subsidiaries is obligated to pay under this Agreement or any other Note Document, Collateral Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) obtain such insurance or make such payment, and all amounts so paid by Collateral Agent are Purchasers’ Expenses and immediately due and payable, bearing interest at the Default Rate, and secured by the Collateral. Collateral Agent will make reasonable efforts to provide Issuer with notice of Collateral Agent obtaining such insurance or making such payment at the time it is obtained or paid or within a reasonable time thereafter. No such payments by Collateral Agent are deemed an agreement to make similar payments in the future or Collateral Agent’s waiver of any Event of Default. 10.4 Application of Payments and Proceeds. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, (a) the Issuer irrevocably waives the right to direct the application of any and all payments at any time or times thereafter received by the Collateral Agent or the Purchasers from or on behalf of the Issuer or any of its Subsidiaries of all or any part of the Obligations, and, as between the Issuer, on the one hand, and the Collateral Agent and Purchasers, on the other, the Collateral Agent and the Purchasers shall have the continuing and exclusive right to apply and to reapply any and all payments received against the Obligations in such manner as the Collateral Agent or the Purchasers may deem advisable notwithstanding any previous application by the Collateral Agent or the Purchasers, and (b) subject to the provisions of Section 2.1(f), the proceeds of any sale of, or other realization upon, all or any part of the Collateral shall be applied by the Collateral Agent: first, to any Collateral Agent fees and expenses (including, any fees, expenses and disbursements of counsel); second, to accrued and unpaid interest on the Obligations (including any interest that, but for the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, would have accrued on such amounts); third, to the principal amount of the Obligations outstanding; and fourth, to any other Obligations owing to the Collateral Agent or any Purchaser under the Note Documents. Any balance remaining shall be delivered to the Issuer or to whomever may be lawfully entitled to receive such balance or as a court of competent jurisdiction may direct. In carrying out the foregoing, (x) amounts received shall be applied in the numerical order provided until exhausted prior to the application to the next 12640916-7 56 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 192 of 381


 
succeeding category, and (y) each of the Persons entitled to receive a payment in any particular category shall receive an amount equal to its pro rata share of amounts available to be applied pursuant thereto for such category. Any reference in this Agreement to an allocation between or sharing by the Purchasers of any right, interest, or obligation “ratably,” “proportionally,” or in similar terms shall refer to the Purchasers’ pro rata share unless expressly provided otherwise. Each Purchaser shall promptly remit to the other Purchasers such sums as may be necessary to ensure the ratable repayment of each Purchaser’s pro rata share of the Notes and the ratable distribution of interest, fees, and reimbursements paid or made by the Issuer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Purchaser receiving a scheduled payment shall not be responsible for determining whether the other Purchasers also received their scheduled payment on such date; provided, however, if it is later determined that a Purchaser received more than its pro rata share of scheduled payments made on any date or dates, then such Purchaser shall remit to the other Purchasers such sums as may be necessary to ensure the ratable payment of such scheduled payments. If any payment or distribution of any kind or character, whether in cash, properties, or securities, shall be received by a Purchaser in excess of its pro rata share, then the portion of such payment or distribution in excess of such Purchaser’s pro rata share shall be received and held by such Purchaser in trust for and shall be promptly paid over to the other Purchasers (in accordance with their respective pro rata shares) for application to the payments of amounts due on such other Purchasers’ claims. To the extent any payment for the account of the Issuer is required to be returned as a voidable transfer or otherwise, the Purchasers shall contribute to one another as is necessary to ensure that such return of payment is on a pro rata basis. If any Purchaser shall obtain possession of any Collateral, it shall hold such Collateral for itself and as agent and bailee for the Secured Parties for purposes of perfecting the Collateral Agent’s security interest therein (held for the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties). 10.5 Liability for Collateral. So long as the Collateral Agent complies with reasonable practices regarding the safekeeping of the Collateral in the possession or under the control of the Collateral Agent, the Collateral Agent shall not be liable or responsible for: (a) the safekeeping of the Collateral; (b) any loss or damage to the Collateral; (c) any diminution in the value of the Collateral; or (d) any act or default of any carrier, warehouseman, bailee, or other Person. The Issuer bears all risk of loss, damage, or destruction of the Collateral. 10.6 No Waiver; Remedies Cumulative. Failure by the Collateral Agent or any Purchaser, at any time or times, to require strict performance by the Issuer of any provision of this Agreement or any other Note Document shall not waive, affect, or diminish any right of the Collateral Agent or any Purchaser thereafter to demand strict performance and compliance herewith or therewith. No waiver hereunder shall be effective unless signed by the Collateral Agent and the Required Purchasers, and then is only effective for the specific instance and purpose for which it is given. The rights and remedies of the Collateral Agent and the Purchasers under this Agreement and the other Note Documents are cumulative. The Collateral Agent and the Purchasers have all rights and remedies provided under the Code, any Applicable Law, by law, or in equity. The exercise by the Collateral Agent or any Purchaser of one right or remedy is not an election, and any Purchaser’s waiver of any Event of Default is not a continuing waiver.

10.7 Demand Waiver. Issuer waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, demand, notice of default or dishonor, notice of payment and nonpayment, notice of any default, nonpayment at maturity, release, compromise, settlement, extension, or renewal of accounts, documents, instruments, chattel paper, and guarantees held by Collateral Agent or any Purchaser on which Issuer or any Subsidiary is liable. 10.8 Setoff and Sharing of Payments. In addition to any rights now or hereafter granted under any Applicable Law and not by way of limitation of any such rights, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, each Purchaser is hereby authorized at any time or from time to time upon the direction of the Required Purchasers, without notice to Issuer or any other Person, any such notice being hereby expressly waived, to setoff and to appropriate and to apply any and all balances held by it at any of its offices for the account of Issuer (regardless of whether such balances are then due to Issuer) and any other properties or assets at any time held or owing by that Purchaser or that holder to or for the credit or for the account of Issuer against and on account of any of the Obligations that are not paid when due. Any Purchaser exercising a right of setoff or otherwise receiving any payment on account of the Obligations in excess of its Pro Rata Share thereof shall purchase for cash (and the other Purchasers or holders shall sell) such participations in each such other Purchaser’s or holder’s Pro Rata Share of the Obligations as would be necessary to cause such Purchaser to share the amount so offset or otherwise received with each other Purchaser or holder in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Shares of the Obligations. Issuer agrees, to the fullest extent permitted by law, that (a) any Purchaser may exercise its right to offset with respect to amounts in excess of its Pro Rata Share of the Obligations and may purchase participations in accordance with the preceding sentence and (b) any Purchaser so purchasing a participation in the Notes made or other Obligations held by other Purchasers or holders may exercise all rights of offset, bankers’ liens, counterclaims or similar rights with respect to such participation as fully as if such Purchaser or holder were a direct holder of the Notes and the other Obligations in the amount of such participation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if all or any portion of the offset amount or payment otherwise received is thereafter recovered from the Purchaser that has exercised the right of offset, the purchase of participations by that Purchaser shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored without interest. 11. NOTICES Other than as specifically provided herein, all notices, consents, approvals, requests, demands, or other communication (collectively, “Communications”) by any party to this Agreement or any other Note Document must be in writing and shall be deemed to have been validly served, given, or delivered: (a) upon the earlier of actual receipt and three Business Days after deposit in the U.S. mail, first class, registered or certified mail return receipt requested, with proper postage prepaid; (b) upon transmission, when sent by email; (c) one Business Day after deposit with a reputable overnight courier with all charges prepaid; or (d) when delivered, if hand- delivered by messenger; all of which shall be addressed to the party to be notified and sent to the address or email address indicated below (and, if delivered pursuant to clause (a), (c), or (d) above, together with a copy of such Communications by email).

Each Party hereto hereby irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction of the Bankruptcy Court or, if the Bankruptcy Court does not have or does not exercise jurisdiction, then any legal action or proceeding with respect to the Note Documents shall be brought exclusively in the courts of the State of New York located in the City of New York, Borough of Manhattan, or of the United States of America for the Southern District of New York and, by execution and delivery of this Agreement, the Issuer hereby accepts for itself and in respect of its property, generally and unconditionally, the jurisdiction of the aforesaid courts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Collateral Agent and Purchasers shall have the right to bring any action or proceeding against Issuer (or any property of Issuer) in the court of any other jurisdiction Collateral Agent or Purchasers deem necessary or appropriate in order to realize on the Collateral or other security for the Obligations. The parties hereto hereby irrevocably waive any objection, including any objection to the laying of venue or based on the grounds of forum non conveniens, that any of them may now or hereafter have to the bringing of any such action or proceeding in such jurisdictions. 12.4 Service of Process.

Applicable Law or commence legal proceedings or otherwise proceed against the Issuer in any other jurisdiction. 13. GENERAL PROVISIONS 13.1 Successors and Assigns. This Agreement binds and is for the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of each party. The Issuer may not transfer, pledge, or assign this Agreement or any other Note Document or any of its rights or obligations hereunder or under any other Note Document without the prior written consent of the Required Purchasers (which may be granted or withheld in the Required Purchasers’ discretion, subject to Section 13,5). The Purchasers may not sell, transfer, assign, or pledge any Notes or all or any part of the Purchasers’ obligations, rights, and benefits under this Agreement and the other Note Documents (any such sale, transfer, assignment, or pledge, a “Purchaser Transfer”) [without the prior written consent of the Issuer (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed)] [Purchasers to confirm]; provided that such consent shall not be required for a Purchaser Transfer to (i) a Person who at such time is an existing Purchaser, (ii) to an Affiliate of such transferring Purchaser, or (iii) to any other Person at any time during which an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing. The Issuer and the Collateral Agent shall be entitled to continue to deal solely and directly with such Purchaser in connection with the interests so assigned until the Required Purchasers shall have received and accepted an effective assignment agreement in form satisfactory to the Required Purchasers executed, delivered and fully completed by the applicable parties thereto (with a copy to the Collateral Agent), and shall have received such other information regarding such assignee as the Required Purchasers reasonably shall require. Each transferee of Notes will be deemed to have made the representations and warranties of a Purchaser hereunder, with effect as of the date of transfer. The Issuer shall maintain at one of its offices in the United States a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Purchasers and principal amounts (and stated interest) of the Notes owing to each Purchaser pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and the Issuer, the Collateral Agent, and the Purchasers shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Purchaser hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement and the other Note Documents. The Register shall be available for inspection by any Purchaser and the Collateral Agent at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. Notwithstanding any other language to the contrary contained herein or in any other Note Documents, as of any particular date, the Collateral Agent shall be entitled to rely conclusively upon the Register (including without limitation in connection with any determination as to which Purchasers constitute the Required Purchasers under this Agreement). For the avoidance of doubt, the Collateral Agent (in its capacity as the Collateral Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining the Register. If the Issuer fails to provide the Collateral Agent with the Register upon the Collateral Agent’s request thereof, the Collateral Agent shall be entitled to rely conclusively upon information provided by any Purchaser as to the unpaid principal, interest and other amounts due and owing to such Purchaser. 13.2 Indemnification; Waivers. (a) Indemnification by the Issuer. The Issuer agrees to indemnify, reimburse, defend, and hold the Collateral Agent and its directors, officers, employees, consultants, agents, attorneys, or any other Person affiliated with or representing the Collateral Agent (each, an 12640916-7 61 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 197 of 381


 
“Indemnified Person”) harmless against: (i) all liabilities, obligations, demands, and claims asserted by any other party in connection with, related to, following, or arising from, out of, or under the transactions contemplated by the Note Documents, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise (collectively, “Claims”); and (ii) all Purchasers’ Expenses and other losses and expenses incurred, or paid by Indemnified Person in connection with, related to, following, or arising from, out of, or under, the transactions contemplated by the Note Documents (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses and, if necessary or appropriate, one local counsel in each reasonably necessary and materially relevant jurisdiction for the Indemnified Persons as a whole), except, in each case, for Claims and/or losses directly caused by such Indemnified Person’s gross negligence, fraud, or willful misconduct, in each case, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and non-appealable judgment. The Issuer hereby further agrees to indemnify, reimburse, defend, and hold each Indemnified Person harmless from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, demands, claims, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses, and disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever (including the fees and disbursements of one counsel for and, if necessary or appropriate, one local counsel in each reasonably necessary and materially relevant jurisdiction for the Indemnified Persons, taken as a whole) in connection with any investigative, response, remedial, administrative, or judicial matter or proceeding, whether or not such Indemnified Person shall be designated a party thereto and including any such proceeding initiated by or on behalf of the Issuer or its stockholders, except for liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, claims, costs, expenses, and disbursements directly caused by such Indemnified Person’s gross negligence, fraud, or willful misconduct, in each case, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and non-appealable judgment. This Section 13.2(a) shall not apply with respect to taxes, assessments, or other governmental charges other than any taxes, assessments, and other governmental charges that represent Claims arising from any non-tax claim. (b) Waiver of Consequential Damages. To the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law, no party hereto shall assert, and each party hereto hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnified Person or any other party hereto, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential, or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement, any other Note Document, or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, or the use of the proceeds thereof. No Indemnified Person shall be liable for any damages arising from the use by unintended recipients of any information or other materials distributed by it through telecommunications, electronic or other information transmission systems in connection with this Agreement or the other Note Documents or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby. 13.3 Severability of Provisions. Each provision of this Agreement is severable from every other provision in determining the enforceability of any provision. 13.4 Correction of Note Documents. The Required Purchasers may correct patent errors and fill in any blanks in this Agreement and the other Note Documents consistent with the agreement of the parties. 13.5 Amendments in Writing; Integration. 12640916-7 62 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 198 of 381

(b) Other than as expressly provided for in Section 13.5(a)(i)-('iii), the Required Purchasers may from time to time designate covenants or other terms in this Agreement less restrictive on the Issuer or its Subsidiaries by notification to a representative of the Issuer. The Required Purchasers (or the Purchasers’ Representative on their behalf) may from time to time consent to the creation and issuance of additional notes having the same terms and conditions as the Notes in all respects (or in all respects except for the issue date, issue price, the initial Interest Payment Date (if applicable) and the payment of interest accruing prior to the issue date of the additional notes), and any limitation on the aggregate principal amount of the Notes in this Indenture or any of the Notes shall, upon such consent, be deemed to be amended accordingly. (c) For so long as the Voting Agreement is in effect and the Investors (as defined in the Voting Agreement) have appointed any Investor Designees (as defined in the Voting Agreement) who are members of the Board of Directors, the approval of a written consent signed on behalf of each of the directors (including such Investor Designees) or the approval of a resolution of the Board of Directors including such Investor Designees at a properly constituted meeting of the Board of Directors shall be deemed to be an approval (or consent or waiver, as the case may be) of the Required Purchasers of any event, occurrence, transaction or state of affairs which would otherwise be in conflict or breach of any of the covenants in Section 7 or Section 8 of this Agreement, to the extent expressly approved by the Board of Directors in such resolution(s).

The Purchasers’ Representative shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it with the consent or at the request of the Required Purchasers.

(e) This Agreement and the Note Documents represent the entire agreement about this subject matter and supersede prior negotiations or agreements with respect to such subject matter. All prior agreements, understandings, representations, warranties, and negotiations between the parties about the subject matter of this Agreement and the Note Documents merge into this Agreement and the Note Documents. 12640916-7 64 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 200 of 381

Issuer hereby agrees that Collateral Agent and each Purchaser, after consultation with Issuer, may make a public announcement of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and may publicize the same in marketing materials, newspapers and other publications, and otherwise, and in connection therewith may use Issuer’s name, tradenames and logos. Notwithstanding the foregoing, such consultation with Issuer shall not be required for any disclosures by Collateral Agent and the Purchasers may also make disclosures to the SEC or other governmental agency and any other public disclosure with investors, other governmental agencies or other related persons. 13.10 Collateral Agent and Purchaser Agreement. The Collateral Agent and the Purchasers hereby agree to the terms and conditions set forth on Exhibit C attached hereto. The Issuer acknowledges and agrees to the terms and conditions set forth on Exhibit C attached hereto. 13.11 Time of Essence.

So long as Issuer has satisfied the Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations and any other obligations which, by their terms, are to survive the termination of this Agreement and for which no claim has been made) in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, this Agreement may be terminated prior to the Maturity Date by Issuer, effective five (5) Business Days after written notice of termination is given to the Collateral Agent and the Purchasers. 13.14 Withholding In the event that the Issuer is required to remit any amounts to a taxing authority on account of taxes required to be deducted or withheld in respect of the Notes, the Issuer shall be entitled to withhold from or offset any such amounts against any amounts or value payable to such Purchaser (including any value deliverable to such Purchaser in connection with a conversion of a Note). The provisions of this Section 13,14 shall survive the performance or termination of this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the provisions of this Section 13,14 12640916-7 66 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 202 of 381


 
shall not limit any obligation of the Issuer with respect to Indemnified Taxes set forth in Exhibit D 13.15 Parties Including Trustees; Bankruptcy Court Proceedings.

Except for Section 8 and the first sentence of Section 7 of this Exhibit C, the provisions of this Exhibit C are solely for the benefit of the Collateral Agent and the Purchasers, and the Issuer shall not have rights as a third-party beneficiary of any of such provisions. (b) Without limiting the generality of clause (a) above, the Collateral Agent is hereby authorized to (i) hold security interests in the Collateral for the ratable benefit of the Purchasers and otherwise act as collateral agent for the Secured Parties for purposes of the perfection of all Liens created by the Note Documents and all other purposes stated therein, (ii) take, at the direction of the Required Purchasers, such action as is necessary or desirable to maintain the perfection and priority of the Liens created or purported to be created by the Note Documents, and (iii) except as may be otherwise specified in any Note Document, exercise, at the direction of the Required Purchasers, all remedies given to the Collateral Agent and the Purchasers with respect to the Issuer and/or the Collateral, whether under the Note Documents, Applicable Law, or otherwise. The Collateral Agent may, upon any term or condition it specifies, perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers hereunder or under any other Note Document by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by the Collateral Agent. The Collateral Agent and any such sub-agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or through their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, trustees, representatives, attorneys, accountants, or other advisors or consultants (each, a “Related Party”). The exculpatory, indemnification, and other provisions of this Exhibit C shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Related Parties of the Collateral Agent and any such sub-agent. The Collateral Agent shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any sub­ agents except to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction determines in a final and non-appealable judgment that the Collateral Agent acted with gross negligence or willful misconduct in the selection of such sub-agents. (c) Each Purchaser hereby irrevocably appoints, designates, authorizes, and directs the Collateral Agent to enter into the Intercreditor Agreement on its behalf and to take action on its behalf pursuant to the provisions thereof as directed by the Required Purchasers.

notwithstanding the use of the defined term “Collateral Agent,” the terms “agent,” “Collateral Agent,” and “collateral agent” and similar terms in any Note Document to refer to the Collateral Agent, which terms are used for title purposes only, are not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under any agency doctrine of any Applicable Law, and are intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between contracting parties, (ii) is not assuming any obligation under any Note Document other than as expressly set forth therein or any role as agent, fiduciary, or trustee of or for any Purchaser or any other Person, and (iii) shall have no implied functions, responsibilities, duties, obligations, or other liabilities under any Note Document, and each Purchaser, by accepting the benefits of the Note Documents, hereby waives and agrees not to assert any claim against the Collateral Agent based on the roles, duties, and legal relationships expressly disclaimed in clauses (i) through (iii) above. Except as expressly set forth in the Note Documents, the Collateral Agent shall not have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for failure to disclose, any information relating to the Issuer or any of its Subsidiaries that is communicated to or obtained by U.S. Bank Trust Company, National Association or any of its Affiliates in any capacity. 2. Binding Effect; Reliance on Instructions from Required Purchasers. (a) Each Purchaser, by accepting the benefits of the Note Documents, agrees that (i) any action taken by the Collateral Agent, the Required Purchasers (or, if expressly required in any Note Document, a greater proportion of the Purchasers) or the Purchasers’ Representative in accordance with the provisions of the Note Documents, (ii) any action taken by the Collateral Agent in reliance upon the instructions of the Purchasers’ Representative or the Required Purchasers (or, where so required, such greater proportion), and (iii) the exercise by the Collateral Agent, the Purchasers’ Representative or the Required Purchasers (or, where so required, such greater proportion) of the powers set forth herein or therein, together with such other powers as are reasonably incidental thereto, shall be authorized and binding upon all of the Purchasers. (b) If the Collateral Agent shall request instructions from the Required Purchasers or all affected Purchasers with respect to any act or action (including failure to act) in connection with any Note Document, then the Collateral Agent shall be entitled to refrain from such act or taking such action unless and until the Collateral Agent shall have received instructions from the Required Purchasers or all affected Purchasers, as the case may be, and the Collateral Agent shall not incur liability to any Person by reason of so refraining. The Collateral Agent shall be fully justified in failing or refusing to take any action under any Note Document (i) if such action would, in the opinion of the Collateral Agent, be contrary to any Applicable Law or any Note Document, (ii) if such action would, in the opinion of the Collateral Agent, expose the Collateral Agent to any potential liability under any Applicable Law, or (iii) if the Collateral Agent shall not first be indemnified to its satisfaction against any and all liability and expense that may be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action. Without limiting the foregoing, no Purchaser shall have any right of action whatsoever against the Collateral Agent as a result of the Collateral Agent acting or refraining from acting under any Note Document in accordance with the instructions of the Required Purchasers or all affected Purchasers, as applicable. 3. Collateral Agent’s Reliance, Etc. The Collateral Agent may, without incurring 12640916-7 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 214 of 381

None of the Collateral Agent or any of its Related Parties shall be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by any of them under or in connection with any Note Document, and each Purchaser and the Issuer hereby waives and shall not assert (and the Issuer shall cause its Subsidiaries to waive and agree not to assert) any right, claim, or cause of action based thereon, except to the extent of liabilities resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Collateral Agent or, as the case may be, such Related Party (in each case, as determined in a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction) in connection with the duties of the Collateral Agent expressly set forth herein. Without limiting the foregoing, the Collateral Agent: (i) shall not be responsible or otherwise incur liability for any action or omission taken in reliance upon the instructions of the Purchasers’ Representative or the Required Purchasers or for the actions or omissions of any of its Related Parties, except to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction determines in a final non-appealable judgment that the Collateral Agent acted with gross negligence or willful misconduct in the selection of such Related Party; (ii) shall not be responsible to any Purchaser or other Person for the due execution, legality, validity, enforceability, effectiveness, genuineness, sufficiency, or value of, or the attachment, perfection, or priority of any Lien created or purported to be created under or in connection with, any Note Document; (iii) makes no warranty or representation, and shall not be responsible, to any Purchaser or other Person for any statement, document, information, representation, or warranty made or furnished by or on behalf of the Issuer or any Related Party of the Issuer in connection with any Note Document or any transaction contemplated therein or any other document or information with respect to the Issuer, whether or not transmitted or (except for documents expressly required under any Note Document to be transmitted to the Purchasers) omitted to be transmitted by the Collateral Agent, including as to completeness, accuracy, scope, or adequacy thereof, or for the scope, nature, or results of any due diligence performed by the Collateral Agent in connection with the Note Documents; and (iv) shall not have any duty to ascertain or to inquire as to the performance or observance of any provision of any Note Document, whether any condition set forth in any Note Document is satisfied or waived, as to the financial condition of the Issuer or as to the existence or continuation or possible occurrence or continuation of any Event of Default, and shall not be deemed to have notice or knowledge of such occurrence or continuation unless it has received a notice from either the Issuer, the Purchasers’ Representative or the Required Purchasers describing such Event of Default that is clearly labeled “notice of default”; and, for each of the items set forth in clauses (i) through (iv) above, each Purchaser and the Issuer hereby waives and agrees not to assert, and the Issuer shall cause its Subsidiaries to waive and agree not to assert, any right, claim, or cause of action it might have against the Collateral Agent based thereon. 4. Collateral Agent Individually. The Collateral Agent and its Affiliates may make loans and other extensions of credit to, acquire stock and stock equivalents of, and engage in any kind of business with the Issuer as though it were not acting as the Collateral Agent and may receive separate fees and other payments therefor. To the extent the Collateral Agent or any of its 12640916-7 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 215 of 381


 
Affiliates becomes a Purchaser hereunder, it shall have and may exercise the same rights and powers hereunder and shall be subj ect to the same obligations and liabilities as any other Purchaser, and the terms “Purchaser,” “Required Purchaser,” and any similar terms shall, except where otherwise expressly provided in any Note Document, include, without limitation, the Collateral Agent or such Affiliate, as the case may be, in its individual capacity as Purchaser, or as one of the Required Purchasers. 5. Purchaser Credit Decision. Each Purchaser acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Collateral Agent, any other Purchaser, or any of their Affiliates or upon any document solely or in part because such document was transmitted by the Collateral Agent or any of its Related Parties, conducted its own independent investigation of the financial condition and affairs of the Issuer and has made and will continue to make its own credit decisions in connection with entering into, and taking or not taking any action under, any Note Document or with respect to any transaction contemplated in any Note Document, in each case, based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate. The Collateral Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to provide any Purchaser with any credit or other information concerning the business, prospects, operations, financial and other condition, or creditworthiness of the Issuer that may come into the possession of the Collateral Agent or any of its Related Parties. 6. Indemnification. Each Purchaser agrees to reimburse the Collateral Agent and each of its Related Parties (to the extent not reimbursed by the Issuer as required under the Note Documents (including pursuant to Section 13.2 of the Agreement)) promptly upon demand for its pro rata share, based on the principal amount of the outstanding Notes held by each of the Purchasers at such time (its “Pro Rata Share”), of any out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including, without limitation, fees, charges, and disbursements of financial, legal, and other advisors and any taxes or insurance paid in the name of, or on behalf of, the Issuer) incurred by the Collateral Agent or any of its Related Parties in connection with the preparation, syndication, execution, delivery, administration, modification, amendment, consent, waiver, or enforcement of, or the taking of any other action (whether through negotiations, through any work-out, bankruptcy, restructuring, or other legal or other proceeding (including, without limitation, preparation for and/or response to any subpoena or request for document production relating thereto) or otherwise) in respect of, or legal advice with respect to, its rights or responsibilities under, any Note Document (such costs and expenses, collectively, “Collateral Agent Expenses”).

To the extent required by any Applicable Law, the Collateral 12640916-7 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 216 of 381


 
Agent may withhold from any payment to any Purchaser under a Note Document an amount equal to any applicable withholding tax. The Collateral Agent may offset against any payment to any Purchaser under a Note Document any applicable withholding tax that was required to be withheld from any prior payment to such Purchaser but which was not so withheld, as well as any other amounts for which the Collateral Agent is entitled to indemnification from such Purchaser under the immediately preceding sentence of this Section 6 of this Exhibit C. 7. Successor Collateral Agent. The Collateral Agent may resign at any time by delivering notice of such resignation to the Purchasers and the Issuer, effective on the date set forth in such notice or, if no such date is set forth therein, upon the date such notice shall be effective, in accordance with the terms of this Section 7 of this Exhibit C. The Required Purchasers may deliver notice of removal to the Collateral Agent, effective on the date set forth in such notice or, if no such date is set forth therein, upon the date such notice shall be effective, in accordance with the terms of this Section 7 of this Exhibit C. Upon receipt of any such notice of resignation or removal, the Required Purchasers shall have the right to appoint a successor Collateral Agent. If, after 30 days after the date of the retiring Collateral Agent’s notice of resignation, no successor Collateral Agent has been appointed by the Required Purchasers and has accepted such appointment, then the retiring Collateral Agent may, on behalf of the Purchasers, appoint a successor Collateral Agent from among the Purchasers. If no such successor Collateral Agent shall have been appointed by the Required Purchasers and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days (or such earlier day as shall be agreed by the Required Purchasers) (the “Resignation Effective Date”), then such resignation shall nonetheless become effective in accordance with such notice on the Resignation Effective Date. Effective immediately upon its resignation, (a) the retiring Collateral Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations under the Note Documents (except that in the case of any collateral security held by the Collateral Agent on behalf of the Purchasers under any of the Note Documents, the retiring Collateral Agent shall continue to hold such collateral security, as bailee, until such time as a successor Collateral Agent is appointed), (b) the Purchasers shall assume and perform all of the duties of the Collateral Agent until a successor Collateral Agent shall have accepted a valid appointment hereunder, (c) the retiring Collateral Agent and its Related Parties shall no longer have the benefit of any provision of any Note Document other than with respect to any actions taken or omitted to be taken while such retiring Collateral Agent was, or because such Collateral Agent had been, validly acting as Collateral Agent under the Note Documents, and (d) subject to its rights under Section 2(b) of this Exhibit C, the retiring Collateral Agent shall take such action as may be reasonably necessary to assign to the successor Collateral Agent its rights as Collateral Agent under the Note Documents. Effective immediately upon its acceptance of a valid appointment as Collateral Agent, a successor Collateral Agent shall succeed to, and become vested with, all the rights, powers, privileges, and duties of the retiring Collateral Agent under the Note Documents (other than any rights to indemnity payments owed to the retiring Collateral Agent). After the retiring Collateral Agent’s resignation or removal hereunder, the provisions of this Exhibit C and Article 12 and Section 13.2 of the Agreement shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Collateral Agent, its sub­ agents and their respective Related Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while the retiring Collateral Agent was acting as Collateral Agent. 8. Release of Collateral. (a) Each Purchaser hereby consents to the release and hereby directs the Collateral Agent, at the sole cost and expense of the Issuer, to release (or in the case of 12640916-7 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 217 of 381


 
clause (ii) below, release or subordinate) the following: (i) any Guarantor if all of the stock of such Subsidiary owned directly or indirectly by the Issuer is sold or transferred in a transaction permitted under the Note Documents (including pursuant to a valid waiver or consent), to the extent that, after giving effect to such transaction, such Subsidiary would not be required to guaranty any Obligations pursuant to any Note Document; and (ii) any Lien held by the Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties against any Collateral that is sold or otherwise disposed of by Issuer in a transaction permitted by the Note Documents (including pursuant to a valid waiver or consent); provided that the Issuer shall have provided to the Collateral Agent a certificate stating that such transaction is permitted under the Note Documents (and each Purchaser hereby authorizes and directs the Collateral Agent to conclusively rely on such certificate in performing its obligations under this clause (a)). (b) Each Purchaser hereby consents and directs the Collateral Agent, at the sole cost and expense of the Issuer, to enter into, and perform under, the Asset Purchase Agreement. (c) Upon request by the Collateral Agent at any time, the Required Purchasers will promptly confirm in writing (which shall not be unreasonably delayed) the Collateral Agent’s authority to release or subordinate its interest in particular types or items of property, or to release any Guarantor from its obligations under the Guarantee pursuant to this Section 8. 9. Exculpatory Provisions. (a) The Collateral Agent shall not have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth in the Agreement, including this Exhibit C, and in the other Note Documents, and its duties hereunder shall be administrative in nature. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Collateral Agent shall not: (i) be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether a Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing; (ii) have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated by the Agreement, including this Exhibit C, or by the other Note Documents that the Collateral Agent is required to exercise as directed in writing by the Purchasers’ Representative or the Required Purchasers (or such other number or percentage of the Purchasers as shall be expressly provided for in this Agreement or in the other Note Documents), and in all cases the Collateral Agent shall be fully justified in failing or refusing to act hereunder or under any other Note Documents unless it shall (a) receive written instructions from the Purchasers’ Representative or the Required Purchasers (or such other number or percentage of the Purchasers as shall be expressly provided for herein or in the other Note Documents) specifying the action to be taken and (b) be indemnified to its satisfaction by the Purchasers against any and all liability and expenses that may 12640916-7 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 218 of 381


 
be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action; provided that the Collateral Agent shall not be required to take any action that, in its opinion or the opinion of its counsel, may expose it to liability or that is contrary to any applicable Note Document or Applicable Law; (iii) except as expressly set forth herein and in the other applicable Note Documents, (x) have any duty to disclose or (y) be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to the Issuer or any of its Affiliates that is communicated to or obtained by the Collateral Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity; or (iv) be liable for any apportionment or distribution of payments made by it in good faith and, if any such apportionment or distribution is subsequently determined to have been made in error, the sole recourse of any Purchaser to whom payment was due but not made shall be to recover from other Purchasers any payment in excess of the amount to which they are determined to be entitled (and such other Purchasers hereby agree to return to such Purchaser any such erroneous payments received by them). (b) The Collateral Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it: (i) with the consent of, or at the request of, the Purchasers’ Representative or the Required Purchasers (or such other number or percentage of the Purchasers as shall be necessary, or as the Collateral Agent shall believe in good faith shall be necessary, under the circumstances, as provided for herein or in the other Note Documents); provided that no action, or any omission to act, taken by the Collateral Agent at the direction of the Purchasers’ Representative or the Required Purchasers (or such other number or percentage of the Purchasers as shall be expressly provided for herein or in the other Note Documents) shall constitute gross negligence or willful misconduct, including, without limitation, Section 6 of this Exhibit C; or (ii) in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by a final and non-appealable judgment. The Collateral Agent shall be entitled to request written instructions, or clarification of any instruction or request, from the Purchasers’ Representative or the Required Purchasers (or, if the relevant Note Document stipulates the matter is a decision for any other Purchaser or group of Purchasers, from that Purchaser or group of Purchasers) as to whether, and in what manner, it should exercise or refrain from exercising any right, power, authority, or discretion, and the Collateral Agent may without any liability hereunder or under any other Note Document refrain from acting unless and until it receives those written instructions or that clarification. In the absence of such written instructions, the Collateral Agent may act (or refrain from acting) as it considers to be in the best interests of the Purchasers. The instructions as aforesaid and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto by the Collateral Agent shall be binding on all of the Purchasers. (c) The Collateral Agent shall not be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain or inquire into (i) any statement, warranty, or representation made in or in connection with the Agreement or any other Note Document, (ii) the contents of any certificate, report, or other document delivered hereunder or thereunder or in connection herewith or therewith, (iii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants, agreements, or other terms or conditions set forth herein or therein or the occurrence of any Default, (iv) the validity, enforceability, effectiveness, or genuineness of this 12640916-7 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 219 of 381


 
Agreement, any other Note Document or any other agreement, instrument, or document, (v) the satisfaction of any condition set forth herein, other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to the Collateral Agent, (vi) the existence, value, perfection, or priority of any collateral security or the financial or other condition of the Issuer, any Guarantor, or any other obligor or guarantor, or (vii) any failure by the Issuer or Guarantor or any other Person (other than itself) to perform any of its obligations hereunder or under any other Note Document or the performance or observance of any covenants, agreements, or other terms or conditions set forth herein or therein. (d) The Collateral Agent shall not be obliged to expend or risk its own funds or otherwise incur any financial liability in the performance of its duties, obligations, or responsibilities or the exercise of any right, power, authority, or discretion if it has grounds for believing the repayment of such funds or adequate indemnity against, or security for, such risk or liability is not reasonably assured to it. (e) The Collateral Agent shall not be responsible for any unsuitability, inadequacy, expiration, or unfitness of any security interest created hereunder or pursuant to any other Note Document, nor shall it be obligated to make any investigation into, and shall be entitled to assume, the adequacy and fitness of any security interest created hereunder or pursuant to any other Note Document. (f) The Collateral Agent shall not be responsible or liable for any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder or any other Note Document arising out of or caused by, directly or indirectly, forces beyond its control, including, without limitation, strikes, work stoppages, accidents, epidemics, pandemics, acts of war or terrorism, civil or military disturbances, nuclear or natural catastrophes or acts of God, and interruptions, loss, or malfunctions of utilities, communications, or computer (software and hardware) services or the unavailability of the Federal Reserve Bank wire or telex or other wire or communication facility. (g) The Collateral Agent shall not be responsible for or have a duty to ascertain or inquire into any representation or warranty regarding the existence, value, or collectability of the Collateral, the existence, priority, or perfection of the Collateral Agent’s Liens thereon, or any certificate prepared by any party in connection therewith, nor shall the Collateral Agent have any duty to, and shall not be responsible or liable to the Purchasers for any failure to, monitor, maintain, or preserve any portion of the Collateral, any security interests of the Collateral Agent therein, or any filings, registrations, or recordings made with respect thereto. The Collateral Agent shall not have any obligation whatsoever to any Purchaser or any other person to investigate, confirm, or assure that the Collateral exists or is owned by the Issuer or is insured or has been encumbered, or that the liens and security interests granted to the Collateral Agent pursuant hereto or any of the other Note Documents or otherwise have been properly or sufficiently or lawfully created, perfected, protected, or enforced or are entitled to any particular priority. 12640916-7 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 220 of 381

In addition, any Purchaser, if reasonably requested by the Issuer, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Issuer as will enable the Issuer to determine whether or not such Purchaser is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Sections 6(b)(i\ 6(b)(ii) and 6(b)(iv) of this Exhibit D) shall not be required if in the Purchaser’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Purchaser to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Purchaser.

7. Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to the provisions of this Exhibit D (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to the provisions of this Exhibit D), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under the provisions of this Exhibit D with respect to the taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out- of-pocket expenses (including taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this Section 7 (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 7, in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this Section 7 the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such tax had never been paid. This Section 7 shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its tax returns (or any other information relating to its taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person. 8. Survival. Each party’s obligations under the provisions of this Exhibit D shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Collateral Agent or any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Purchaser and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Note Document. 12640916-7 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 225 of 381

arising under or pursuant to sections 105, 502, 510, 541, 542 through 553, inclusive, or 558 of the Bankruptcy Code or applicable state law equivalents.

Findings Regarding the DIP Facilities and Use of Cash Collateral. (a) Good cause has been shown for the entry of this Interim Order. (b) As set forth in the First Day Declaration, the Debtors have an immediate need to obtain the DIP Facilities and to use the Cash Collateral in each case on an interim basis, in order to, among other things, (i) permit the orderly continuation of their respective businesses, (ii) maintain business relationships with their vendors, suppliers, regulators, customers and other parties, (iii) make payroll, (iv) make adequate protection payments, (v) pay the costs of the administration of the Chapter 11 Cases, including a process for the sale of the Debtors’ assets, and (vi) satisfy other working capital and general corporate purposes of the Debtors. The Debtors require immediate access to sufficient working capital and liquidity through the incurrence of the US-DOCS\147131838.7 13 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 244 of 381


 
new indebtedness for borrowed money and other financial accommodations to avoid irreparable harm by, among other things, preserving and maintaining the value of the Debtors’ assets. The Debtors will not have sufficient sources of working capital and financing to operate their business or maintain their properties in the ordinary course of business throughout the Chapter 11 Cases without the DIP Facilities and authorized use of Cash Collateral. (c) As set forth in the First Day Declaration, the Debtors are unable to obtain financing on more favorable terms from sources other than the DIP Lenders under the DIP Documents and are unable to obtain adequate unsecured credit allowable under Bankruptcy Code section 503(b)(1) as an administrative expense. The Debtors are unable to obtain secured credit allowable under Bankruptcy Code sections 364(c)(1), 364(c)(2) and 364(c)(3) for the purposes set forth in the DIP Documents. Financing on a postpetition basis is not otherwise available without the Debtors granting to the DIP Agents, for the benefit of itself and the DIP Lenders, the DIP Liens (as defined herein), in each case, under the terms and conditions set forth in this Interim Order and the DIP Documents. (d) The terms of the DIP Facilities, the DIP Documents and the use of Cash Collateral are fair and reasonable, reflect the Debtors’ exercise of prudent business judgment consistent with their fiduciary duties and constitute reasonably equivalent value and fair consideration. (e) The DIP Facilities have been negotiated in good faith and at arm’s length among the Debtors, the DIP Agents and the DIP Lenders, and all of the Debtors’ obligations and indebtedness arising under, in respect of or in connection with the DIP Facilities and the DIP Documents including, without limitation, the DIP Obligations, shall be deemed to have been extended by the DIP Agents and the DIP Lenders, respectively, in good faith as that term is used in Bankruptcy Code section 364(e) and in express reliance upon the protections offered by US-DOCS\147131838.7 14 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 245 of 381


 
Bankruptcy Code section 364(e). The DIP Obligations and the DIP Liens (as defined herein) shall be entitled to the full protection of Bankruptcy Code section 364(e) in the event that this Interim Order or any provision hereof is vacated, reversed or modified on appeal or otherwise, and any liens or claims granted to the DIP Agents or the DIP Lenders hereunder arising prior to the effective date of any such vacatur, reversal or modification of this Interim Order shall be governed in all respects by the original provisions of this Interim Order, including entitlement to all rights, remedies, privileges and benefits granted herein. (f) The Debtors have requested entry of this Interim Order pursuant to Bankruptcy Rules 4001(b)(2) and 4001(c)(2). For the reasons set forth in the Motion, the First Day Declaration, and the record presented to the Court at the Interim Hearing, absent granting the relief granted by this Interim Order, the Debtors’ estates will be immediately and irreparably harmed. Consummation of the DIP Facilities and authorization of the use of the Prepetition Collateral (including the Cash Collateral) in accordance with this Interim Order and the DIP Documents are, therefore, in the best interests of the Debtors’ estates and are consistent with the Debtors’ fiduciary duties. (g) (i) the Prepetition Second Lien Parties have consented to the terms of the DIP Facilities and entry of this Interim Order, and (ii) the Prepetition Second Priority Liens and the Second Lien Adequate Protection Liens (as defined herein) are subordinate to the Carve Out, the Permitted Liens (if any), the DIP Liens, the First Lien Adequate Protection Liens and the Prepetition First Priority Liens. 6.

Declaration Date”), the Carve Out Trigger Notice shall (i) be deemed a draw request and notice of borrowing by the Debtors for DIP Loans under the DIP Facilities and (ii) also constitute a demand to the Debtors to utilize all cash on hand as of such date and any available cash thereafter held by any Debtor to deposit in the Funded Reserve Account an amount equal to the then unpaid amounts of (A) the Allowed Professional Fees of Debtor Professionals (subject to the DIP Budget and reduced for retainers held by such Professional Person as set forth in clause (iii) of the definition of Carve Out above), (B) the Allowed Professional Fees of the Committee Professionals (subject to the DIP Budget and reduced for retainers held by such Professional Person as set forth in clause (iii) of the definition of Carve Out above), and (C) the obligations accrued as of the Termination Declaration Date with respect to clauses (i) and (ii) of the definition of Carve Out set forth in paragraph 13(a) (the “Additional Carve Out Obligations”). The Debtors shall deposit such amounts in the Funded Reserve Account in trust to pay such then unpaid Allowed Professional Fees and Additional Carve Out Obligations (the “Pre-Carve Out Trigger Notice Reserve”) prior to the use of such reserve to pay any other claims. On the Termination Declaration Date, after funding the Pre-Carve Out Trigger Notice Reserve, the Debtors shall utilize all remaining cash on hand as of such date and any available cash thereafter held by any Debtor to fund a reserve in an amount equal to the Post-Carve Out Trigger Notice Cap (the “Post-Carve Out Trigger Notice Reserve” and, together with the Pre-Carve Out Trigger Notice Reserve, the “Carve Out Reserves”) prior to the use of such reserve to pay any other claims. All funds in the Pre-Carve Out Trigger Notice Reserve shall be used first to pay the obligations set forth in clauses (i) through (iii) of the definition of Carve Out set forth above in paragraph 13(a) (the “Pre-Carve Out Amounts”), but not, for the avoidance of doubt, the Post-Carve Out Trigger Notice Cap, until the Pre-Carve Out Amounts are paid in full, and then, to the extent the Pre-Carve Out Trigger Notice Reserve has not US-DOCS\147131838.7 29 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 260 of 381


 
been reduced to zero, subject to the terms of this Interim Order (including, without limitation, paragraph 14 hereof), to pay any other amounts (if owing) benefitted by the Carve Out and then to the applicable agent to be applied to the Senior DIP Obligations, Junior DIP Obligations, Adequate Protection Obligations, and Prepetition Secured Obligations (collectively, the “Obligations”) according to the priorities set forth in paragraphs 10 and 12 of this Interim Order. All funds in the Post-Carve Out Trigger Notice Reserve shall be used first to pay the obligations set forth in clause (iv) of the definition of Carve Out set forth above (the “Post-Carve Out Amounts”), and then, to the extent the Post-Carve Out Trigger Notice Reserve has not been reduced to zero, subject to the terms of this Interim Order (including, without limitation, paragraph 14 hereof), to the applicable agent to be applied to the Obligations according to the priorities set forth in paragraphs 10 and 12 of this Interim Order. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the DIP Documents or this Interim Order, if either of the Carve Out Reserves is not funded in full in the amounts set forth in this paragraph 13, then, any excess funds in one of the Carve Out Reserves following the payment of the Pre-Carve Out Amounts and Post-Carve Out Amounts, respectively, shall be used to fund the other Carve Out Reserve, up to the applicable amount set forth in this paragraph 13, prior to making any payments to any agent for the benefit of the DIP Parties or Prepetition Secured Parties, as applicable. Funds transferred to the Funded Reserve Account shall not be subject to any liens or claims granted to the DIP Lenders herein or any liens or claims granted as adequate protection, shall not constitute DIP Collateral, and shall not constitute cash collateral or assets of the Debtors' estates; provided, that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in the DIP Documents, the DIP Collateral shall include the Debtors' reversionary interest in funds held in the Funded Reserve Account and such reversionary interest shall be treated as DIP Collateral and subject to the DIP Liens and the DIP Superpriority Claims.

None of the DIP Agents, DIP Lenders or the Prepetition Secured Parties shall be responsible for the payment or reimbursement of any fees or disbursements of any Professional Person incurred in connection with the Chapter 11 Cases or any successor cases under any chapter of the Bankruptcy Code. Nothing in this Interim Order or otherwise shall be construed to obligate the DIP Agents, the DIP Lenders or the Prepetition Secured Parties, in any way, to pay compensation to, or to reimburse expenses of, any Professional Person or to guarantee that the Debtors have sufficient funds to pay such compensation or reimbursement. (d) Payment of Carve Out On or After the Termination Declaration Date. Any payment or reimbursement made on or after the occurrence of the Termination Declaration Date in respect of any Allowed Professional Fees shall permanently reduce the Carve Out on a dollar- for-dollar basis. Any funding of the Carve Out under the DIP Facilities shall be added to, and made a part of, the DIP Obligations secured by the DIP Collateral and shall be otherwise entitled to the protections granted under this Interim Order, the DIP Documents, the Bankruptcy Code and applicable law. 14. DIP Inter creditor Provisions (a) Standstill.

The Assumption Notice shall identify all Available Contracts and set forth a good faith estimate of the amount of the Cure Amounts applicable to each such Contract. (b) Within ten (10) Business Days of delivery by Sellers of the Assumption Notice (such date, the “Designation Deadline”), Buyer shall designate in writing delivered to Sellers (each such writing, a “Designation Notice”) which Available Contracts that Buyer wishes to assume at the Closing (the “Assigned Contracts”). Within three (3) Business Days prior to the Sale Hearing (as defined below), Buyer shall have the right to designate (i) any other Available Contract as an Assigned Contract(s) in its sole discretion by notice to the Sellers, and any such Assigned Contract(s) shall be automatically deemed an Acquired Asset hereunder, and (ii) any Assigned Contract(s) in its sole discretion by notice to the Sellers as an Excluded Asset, and any such Assigned Contract shall be automatically deemed an Excluded Asset.

For the avoidance of doubt, Buyer shall not assume or otherwise have any Liability with respect to any Excluded Asset. At Buyer’s reasonable request, the Sellers shall make reasonably available to Buyer the appropriate employees of the Sellers necessary to discuss the outstanding Available Contracts. 22 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 331 of 381

(g) Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as an attempt by Sellers to assign any Available Contract to the extent that such Available Contract is not assignable under the Bankruptcy Code or otherwise without the consent of the other party or parties thereto, if applicable law would require such consent, and the consent of such other party has not been given or received, as applicable. (i) With respect to any Assigned Contract for which the consent of a party thereto to the assignment thereof shall be required but not have been obtained prior to the Closing Date, Sellers and Buyer shall use their reasonable good faith efforts to obtain as expeditiously as possible the written consent of the other party or parties to such Assigned Contract necessary for the assignment thereof to Buyer. (ii) Unless and until any such consent, waiver, confirmation, novation or approval is obtained, Sellers and Buyer shall cooperate to establish an arrangement reasonably satisfactory to Sellers and Buyer under which Buyer would obtain the claims, rights and benefits and assume the corresponding Liabilities and obligations thereunder (including by means of any subcontracting, sublicensing or subleasing arrangement). In such event, (A) Sellers will hold in trust for and promptly pay to Buyer, when received, all moneys received by them under any such Available Contract or any claim, right or benefit arising thereunder and (B) Buyer will promptly pay, perform or discharge, when due, any and all obligations and Liabilities arising thereunder, other than those being contested in good faith. (iii) Buyer acknowledges that no adjustment to the Purchase Price shall be made for any such Available Contracts that are not assigned and that Buyer shall have no claim against Sellers in respect of such unassigned Available Contracts. (iv) Nothing in this Section 2.5(g) shall be deemed a waiver of Buyer’s right to receive an effective assignment of all of the Acquired Assets at Closing nor 23 Case 23-20514-CLC Doc 48 Filed 12/21/23 Page 332 of 381
