The New Facility is scheduled to mature on July 8, 2016. The Company can terminate and prepay
the New Facility at any time without payment of any termination or prepayment penalty (other than
customary breakage costs in respect of loans bearing interest at a rate based on LIBOR).
At the Companys election, revolving loans under the New Facility bear interest at annual
rates equal to either (a) LIBOR for 1, 2, 3 or 6 month periods, as selected by the Company, plus an
applicable margin ranging between 1.25% and 2.0%, or (b) the higher of the Bank of America, N.A.

applicable margin ranging between 0.25% and 1.0%. The Company also pays a commitment fee to the
Lenders under the New Facility on the average amount by which the aggregate commitments of the
Lenders exceeds utilization of the New Facility ranging from 0.25% to 0.4% per annum. The
applicable margin and the commitment fee are determined based on the Companys Consolidated Net

All obligations of the Company and the other Borrowers under the New Facility are required to
be guaranteed by all of the Companys material domestic subsidiaries and all obligations of
Borrowers that are foreign subsidiaries are guaranteed by those foreign subsidiaries of the Company
which the Company designates as guarantors. All obligations under the New Facility, and the
guarantees of those obligations, are secured by a security interest in domestic accounts receivable
and inventories, certain shares of capital stock (or equivalent ownership interests) of the
domestic borrowers and domestic guarantors subsidiaries, and proceeds of any of the foregoing.
The amount of the obligations under the New Facility secured by such shares of capital stock and
equivalent ownership interests is limited to the lesser of (i) the aggregate amount permitted to be
secured under the Companys Indenture dated as of April 2, 2002 without requiring the notes issued
under that Indenture to be secured equally and
ratably by such shares of capital stock and equivalent ownership interests and (ii) the
aggregate amount permitted to be secured under the Companys Indenture dated as of January 9, 2006
(as supplemented by that first supplemental indenture dated as of January 17, 2006) without
requiring the notes issued under that Indenture to be secured equally and ratably by such shares of
capital stock and equivalent ownership interests.
If at any time (a) either (i) the Companys corporate family rating or senior unsecured
rating, whichever is in effect from Moodys Investors Service, Inc. (the Moodys Rating) is Baa3
or better (with a stable outlook or better) and the Companys corporate rating from Standard &
Poors Financial Services LLC (the S&P Rating) is BB+ or better (with a stable outlook or better)
or (ii) the Moodys Rating is Ba1 or better (with a stable outlook or better) and the S&P Rating is
BBB- or better (with a stable outlook or better) and (b) no default or event of default shall have
occurred and be continuing, then upon the Companys request, the foregoing security interests will
be released. The Company is required to reinstate such security interest after it has been
released if: (a) both (i) the Moodys Rating is Ba2 and (ii) the S&P Rating is BB, (b) (i) the
Moodys Rating is Ba3 or lower and (ii) the S&P Rating is below BBB- (with a stable outlook or
better) or (c) (i) the Moodys Rating is below Baa3 (with a stable outlook or better) and (ii) the
S&P Rating is BB- or lower.
The New Facility includes certain affirmative and negative covenants that impose restrictions
on the Companys financial and business operations, including limitations on liens, indebtedness,
investments, fundamental changes, asset dispositions, dividends and other similar restricted
payments, transactions with affiliates, payments and modifications of certain existing debt, future
negative pledges, and changes in the nature of the Companys business. Many of these limitations
are subject to numerous exceptions. The Company is also required to maintain a Consolidated
Interest Coverage Ratio of at least 3.0 to 1.0 and a Consolidated Net Leverage Ratio of no more
than 3.75 to 1.0, each as of the last day of any fiscal quarter.
