Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
As previously disclosed, on June 15, 2022, Revlon, Inc. (“Revlon”) and certain subsidiaries, including Revlon Consumer Products Corporation (“Products Corporation” and together with Revlon, the “Company”) (the Chapter 11 filing entities collectively, the “Debtors”), filed voluntary petitions for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the “Bankruptcy Court”). The cases (the “Chapter 11 Cases”) are being administered under the caption In re Revlon, Inc., et al. (Case No. 22-10760 (DSJ)). The Debtors continue to operate their businesses as “debtors-in-possession” under the jurisdiction of the Bankruptcy Court and in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and orders of the Bankruptcy Court.

Also, as previously disclosed, on December 19, 2022, Revlon, Products Corporation, and certain of Revlon’s other direct and indirect subsidiaries (the “Company Parties”) entered into a Restructuring Support Agreement (the “Original RSA”) with certain of the Company’s prepetition lenders under the previously disclosed 2020 BrandCo Credit Agreement and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the Debtors’ Chapter 11 Cases (together, the “Original Consenting Creditor Parties”) regarding restructuring transactions (such transactions, collectively, the “Restructuring”) pursuant to a Chapter 11 plan of reorganization on the terms and conditions set forth in the RSA.
 
Also, as previously disclosed, on December 23, 2022, the Debtors filed the Joint Plan of Reorganization of Revlon, Inc. and Its Debtor Affiliates Pursuant to Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code [Docket No. 1253] (the “Original Plan”).
 
Also, as previously disclosed, on January 17, 2023, the Debtors entered into an agreement (the “Original Backstop Commitment Agreement”) with certain of the Consenting BrandCo Lenders under the RSA (the “Original Equity Commitment Parties”), pursuant to which each of the Original Equity Commitment Parties thereunder had agreed to backstop, severally and not jointly and subject to the terms and conditions in the Backstop Commitment Agreement, the Aggregate Rights Offering Amount (as defined in the Original Backstop Commitment Agreement).
 
Also, as previously disclosed, on January 17, 2023, as contemplated by the Restructuring Support Agreement, the Debtors entered into the Debt Commitment Letter with the Debt Commitment Parties, pursuant to which the Debt Commitment Parties committed to fund up to $200 million in net cash proceeds to the Debtors in connection with a new senior secured first lien term loan facility (the “Incremental New Money Facility”) upon emergence from Chapter 11. As consideration for entering into the Debt Commitment Letter, the Debt Commitment Parties will receive a premium of 3.00% on their $200 million funding commitment payable in-kind in the form of additional loans added under the Incremental New Money Facility (the “Debt Commitment Premium”).  If the Debt Commitment Letter is terminated, then under certain conditions set forth in the Debt Commitment Letter, the Debt Commitment Parties are entitled to receive a termination premium of $6 million (3.00% of the $200 million commitment amount) in lieu of the Debt Commitment Premium.
 
Amended and Restated Restructuring Support Agreement
 
On February 21, 2023, the Company Parties entered into the Amended and Restated Restructuring Support Agreement (the “Amended RSA”) with the Original Consenting Creditor Parties and certain of the Company’s prepetition lenders under the previously disclosed 2016 Credit Agreement (as defined herein) (together with the Original Consenting Creditor Parties, the “Consenting Creditor Parties,” and together with the Original Consenting Creditor Parties and the Company Parties, the “RSA Parties”).  Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this “Amended and Restated Restructuring Support Agreement” section of this Current Report on Form 8-K have the meanings given to them in the Amended RSA which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
 
2

Under the Amended RSA, the Consenting Creditor Parties have agreed, subject to certain terms and conditions, to support the First Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization attached to, and incorporated into, the Amended RSA (the Amended Plan”).  Certain holders of Claims will receive different treatment under the Amended Plan as compared to the Original Plan, as follows:
 

OpCo Term Loan Claims. Each holder of OpCo Term Loan Claims (2016 Term Loan Claims and 2020 Term B-3 Loan Claims against the OpCo Debtors) shall receive (a) its pro rata share of cash in the amount of $56 million or (b) if such holder makes or is deemed to make the Class 4 Equity Election, such holder’s pro rata share of 18% of (i) the New Common Stock issued on the effective date of the Amended Plan (the “Effective Date”), subject to dilution by any New Common Stock issued in connection with the Equity Rights Offering (as defined below), including, for the avoidance of doubt, any New Common Stock issued pursuant to the Backstop Commitment Agreement, in connection with any MIP Awards (as defined in the Amended Plan), and/or upon the exercise of the New Warrants (as defined in the Amended Plan), and (ii) the Equity Subscription Rights; provided that holders of no more than $334 million of OpCo Term Loan Claims are permitted to elect to receive cash;


2020 Term B-1 Loan Claims. Each holder of 2020 Term B-1 Loan Claims shall receive, either (a) a principal amount of Take-Back Term Loans equal to such holder’s Allowed 2020 Term B-1 Loan Claim or (b) an amount of cash equal to the principal amount of Take-Back Term Loans that otherwise would have been distributable to such holder under clause (a);


2020 Term B-2 Loan Claims. Each holder of 2020 Term B-2 Loan Claims shall receive its pro rata share of 82% of (a) the New Common Stock issued on the Effective Date, subject to dilution by any New Common Stock issued in connection with the Equity Rights Offering, including, for the avoidance of doubt, any New Common Stock issued pursuant to the Backstop Commitment Agreement, in connection with any MIP Awards, and/or upon the exercise of the New Warrants, and (b) the Equity Subscription Rights; and


Other Claims.  Except as indicated above, there have been no changes to the treatment of other Claims under the Original Plan, including BrandCo Third Lien Guaranty Claims, Unsecured Notes Claims, General Unsecured Claims, Qualified Pension Claims, or Interests in Revlon.

As previously disclosed, the Company Parties will conduct an Equity Rights Offering available to eligible holders of certain claims.  Under the Amended Plan, the Equity Rights Offering will be available to holders of OpCo Term Loan Claims and 2020 Term B-2 Loan Claims to raise up to $670 million in cash from the offer and sale of New Common Stock. The New Common Stock issued in the Equity Rights Offering will dilute the New Common Stock distributed to holders of OpCo Term Loan Claims and 2020 Term B-2 Loan Claims on account of such Claims. The Equity Rights Offering will be fully backstopped by the Equity Commitment Parties (as defined below), and a portion of the Equity Rights Offering will be reserved for the Equity Commitment Parties.

Pursuant to the Amended RSA and Amended Plan, the Company Parties will not pursue an Acceptable Alternative Transaction in the form of a sale of the Company’s assets.

The Amended RSA provides that the Debtors shall achieve certain future milestones (unless extended or waived in writing), including:


No later than February 21, 2023, the Debtors shall file with the Bankruptcy Court: (i) the Amended Plan; and (ii) an amended Disclosure Statement reflecting the Amended Plan;


No later than February 22, 2023, the Bankruptcy Court shall have entered an order approving (i) the amended Disclosure Statement and (ii) the amended Backstop Motion;
3


No later than February 28, 2023, the Debtors shall have commenced the solicitation of votes to accept or reject the Amended Plan;


No later than April 4, 2023, the Bankruptcy Court shall have entered an order confirming the Amended Plan; and


No later than April 18, 2023, the effective date of the Amended Plan shall have occurred.

The commitments of the RSA Parties under the Amended RSA are substantially identical to the obligations under the Original RSA, as previously disclosed.  Each of the RSA Parties may terminate the Amended RSA (and thereby their support for the associated plan of reorganization) under certain circumstances, substantially consistent with the Original RSA.

The foregoing description of the Amended RSA is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended RSA which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Amended RSA have been made solely for the purpose of such agreement and as of specific dates, for the benefit of the parties thereto. In addition, such representations, warranties and covenants (i) may have been qualified by confidential disclosures exchanged between the parties, (ii) are subject to materiality qualifications contained in the agreements which may differ from what may be viewed as material by investors, and (iii) have been included in the agreements for the purpose of allocating risk between the contracting parties rather than establishing matters of fact. Investors should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of actual facts or circumstances, and the subject matter of representations and warranties may change after the date as of which such representations or warranties were made. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations, warranties and covenants may change after the date of the agreements, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Company’s public disclosures. The Amended RSA is subject to approval by the Bankruptcy Court.

Amended and Restated Backstop Commitment Agreement
 
On February 21, 2023, as contemplated by the Amended RSA, the Company Parties entered into the  amended and restated backstop commitment agreement (the “Amended BCA”) with the Original Equity Commitment Parties and certain of the Consenting 2016 Lenders under the Amended RSA (together with the Original Equity Commitment Parties, the “Equity Commitment Parties”), pursuant to which each of the Equity Commitment Parties has agreed to backstop, severally and not jointly and subject to the terms and conditions in the Backstop Commitment Agreement, the upsized $670 million Equity Rights Offering (the “Upsized Aggregate Rights Offering Amount”), subject to the Excess Liquidity Cutback (as defined below). Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this “Amended and Restated Backstop Commitment Agreement” section of this Current Report on Form 8-K have the meanings given to them in the Amended Plan and/or the Backstop Commitment Agreement, which are attached hereto as Exhibits 99.1 and 10.2, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.

The Amended BCA provides that (i) each of the Equity Commitment Parties will, subject to the terms and conditions in the Amended BCA, purchase its agreed percentage (the “Backstop Commitment Percentage”) of the New Common Stock (as defined in the Amended Plan) representing the unsubscribed portion of the Subscription Amount, (ii) each of the Equity Commitment Parties will, subject to the terms and conditions in the Backstop Commitment Agreement, purchase its agreed percentage of the New Common Stock representing the Direct Allocation Amount, and (iii) each of the Equity Commitment Parties will, subject to the terms and conditions in the Amended BCA, subscribe for, and at the closing purchase, the New Common Stock offered to such Equity Commitment Party in connection with the Equity Rights Offering. As consideration for entering into the Backstop Commitment Agreement, each Equity Commitment Party will receive, upon the closing of the Equity Rights Offering, its Backstop Commitment Percentage of a 12.5% equity commitment premium on the $670 million aggregate amount of the initial funding commitments, which amount shall be payable in the form of New Common Stock at a price per share calculated at a 30% discount to Plan Equity Value. If the Amended BCA is terminated, then under certain conditions set forth in the Amended BCA, the Equity Commitment Parties are entitled to receive an equity termination premium of $83.75 million in cash (representing 12.5% of the $670 million Revised Aggregate Rights Offering Amount).

4

The shares of New Common Stock that will be issued to the Equity Commitment Parties under the Amended BCA (other than the shares of New Common Stock issued in payment of commitment premiums and, for the avoidance of doubt, the shares of New Common Stock issued in respect of an Equity Commitment Party’s purchase of the New Common Stock offered to it in connection with the Equity Rights Offering) will be issued in a private placement exempt from registration under Section 5 of the Securities Act pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) and/or Regulation D thereunder and will constitute “restricted securities” for purposes of the Securities Act.

To the extent that, as of the Closing Date (as defined under the Amended BCA), the sum of (i) unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of the loan parties under the First Lien Exit Facilities and (ii) undrawn availability under the Exit ABL Facility (excluding the effect of any temporarily increased advance rates under the Exit ABL Facility that will not remain in effect through the maturity date of such facility), exceeds $285.0 million (such excess, “Excess Liquidity”), then such Excess Liquidity will be applied, on a dollar for dollar basis, first, to reduce the aggregate amount of the Equity Rights Offering on a dollar for dollar basis to not less than $650 million; second, in an amount of up to $12.0 million to pay the Debt Commitment Premium and Funding Discount (on a ratable basis) in cash; third, to further reduce the aggregate amount of the Equity Rights Offering on a dollar for dollar basis to not less than $625 million; fourth, to reduce the amount of the Incremental New Money Facility on a dollar for dollar basis to the extent that the aggregate amount of the First Lien Exit Facilities is no less than $1.275 billion; and fifth, 50% of any remaining Excess Liquidity to further reduce the amount of the Incremental New Money Facility and 50% of any remaining Excess Liquidity to further reduce the amount of the Equity Rights Offering (collectively, the “Excess Liquidity Cutback”).

Additionally, certain amendments were made under the Amended BCA with respect to the circumstances under which the Equity Commitment Parties would be entitled to receive the 12.5% termination premium.

The foregoing description of the Amended BCA is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended Plan and Amended BCA, which are attached hereto as Exhibits 99.1 and 10.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.

DIP Plan Milestone Extension

In connection with the Chapter 11 Cases, Revlon, Products Corporation and certain of Revlon’s direct and indirect subsidiaries entered into (i) the Super-Priority Senior Secured Debtor-in-Possession Asset-Based Credit Agreement, dated June 30, 2022, by and among Products Corporation, as the Borrower, Revlon, as Holdings, the lenders party thereto and MidCap Funding IV Trust, as Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent (the “DIP ABL Credit Agreement”) and (ii) the Super-Priority Senior Secured Debtor-in-Possession Credit Agreement, dated as of June 17, 2022, by and among Products Corporation, as the Borrower, Revlon, as Holdings, the lenders party thereto and Jefferies Finance LLC, as Administrative Agent and Collateral Agent (the “DIP Term Loan Credit Agreement” and together with the DIP ABL Credit Agreement, the “DIP Credit Agreements”).
 
On February 21, 2023, the Debtors amended (i) Section 6.20(g) of the DIP ABL Credit Agreement and (ii) Section 6.17(g) of the DIP Term Loan Credit Agreement to extend the required milestone date (such milestone date, the “DIP Confirmation Milestone Date”) for the entry of an Acceptable Confirmation Order (as defined in the DIP ABL Credit Agreement and the DIP Term Loan Credit Agreement) from April 1, 2023 to April 4, 2023.

On February 21, 2023, the Debtors amended (i) Section 6.20(h) of the DIP ABL Credit Agreement and (ii) Section 6.17(h) of the DIP Term Loan Credit Agreement to extend the required milestone date (such milestone date, the “DIP Emergence Milestone Date”) for occurrence of the Plan Effective Date (as defined in the DIP ABL Credit Agreement and the DIP Term Loan Credit Agreement) from April 15, 2023 to April 18, 2023.

Item 7.01
Regulation FD Disclosure.
 
First Amended Plan and Amended Disclosure Statement
 
As previously disclosed, on December 23, 2022, the Debtors filed the Original Plan and a related proposed form of Disclosure Statement (the “Original Disclosure Statement”) with the Bankruptcy Court. On February 21, 2023, the Debtors filed the Amended Plan and a related amended Disclosure Statement (the “Amended Disclosure Statement”). The Amended Plan is intended to implement the Restructuring contemplated by the Amended RSA. The Amended Plan and the related Amended Disclosure Statement describe, among other things, the Amended Plan; the Restructuring contemplated by the Amended RSA; the events leading to the Chapter 11 Cases; certain events that have occurred or are anticipated to occur during the Chapter 11 Cases, including the anticipated solicitation of votes to approve the Amended Plan from certain of the Debtors’ creditors and certain other aspects of the Restructuring. The Amended Plan and Amended Disclosure Statement, as well as other court filings and information about the Chapter 11 Cases, can be accessed free of charge at a website maintained by the Debtors’ claims, noticing, and solicitation agent, Kroll, at https://cases.ra.kroll.com/revlon/, or call (855) 631-5341 (toll-free in the U.S.) or +1 (646) 795-6968 (from outside the U.S.).

Although the Debtors intend to pursue the Restructuring in accordance with the terms set forth in the Amended Plan and the Amended RSA, there can be no assurance that the Amended Plan will be approved by the Bankruptcy Court or that the Debtors will be successful in consummating the Restructuring or any other similar transaction on the terms set forth in the Amended Plan, on different terms or at all. Bankruptcy law does not permit solicitation of acceptances of a proposed Chapter 11 plan of reorganization until the Bankruptcy Court approves a disclosure statement relating to the Amended Plan. Accordingly, neither the Debtors’ filing of the Amended Plan and Amended Disclosure Statement, nor this Current Report on Form 8-K, is a solicitation of votes to accept or reject the Amended Plan. Any such solicitation will be made pursuant to and in accordance with applicable law, including orders of the Bankruptcy Court. The Amended Disclosure Statement is being submitted to the Bankruptcy Court for approval but has not been approved by the Bankruptcy Court to date.
 
5

Information contained in the Amended Plan and the Amended Disclosure Statement is subject to change, whether as a result of amendments or supplements to the Amended Plan or Amended Disclosure Statement, third-party actions, or otherwise, and should not be relied upon by any party. Such amendments and supplements will also be available for review and free of charge online at https://cases.ra.kroll.com/Revlon/. Such amendments and supplements may be filed with the Bankruptcy Court without the filing of an accompanying Current Report on Form 8-K. The documents and other information available via website or elsewhere are not part of this Current Report on Form 8-K and shall not be deemed incorporated herein.
 
Copies of the Amended Plan and the Proposed Disclosure Statement are attached as Exhibit 99.1 and 99.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K. The foregoing description of the Amended Plan and Amended Disclosure Statement is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended Plan and the Amended Disclosure Statement.
 
The information in this Item 7.01, including Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and is not incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) or the Exchange Act.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information
 
Certain statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K are “forward-looking statements” made pursuant to the safe-harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended. The Company’s actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain risks and other factors, which could include the following: risks and uncertainties relating to the bankruptcy petitions, including but not limited to, the Company’s ability to obtain Bankruptcy Court approval with respect to motions in the bankruptcy petitions, the effects of the bankruptcy petitions on the Company and on the interests of various constituents, Bankruptcy Court rulings on the bankruptcy petitions and the outcome of the bankruptcy petitions in general, the length of time the Company will operate under the bankruptcy petitions, risks associated with third-party motions in the bankruptcy petitions, the potential adverse effects of the bankruptcy petitions on the Company’s liquidity or results of operations and increased legal and other professional costs necessary to execute the Company’s reorganization; the conditions to which the Company’s debtor-in-possession financing is subject and the risk that these conditions may not be satisfied for various reasons, including for reasons outside of the Company’s control; the consequences of the acceleration of our debt obligations; trading price and volatility of the Company’s Class A common stock as well as other risk factors set forth in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company therefore cautions readers against relying on these forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements attributable to the Company or persons acting on the Company’s behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the foregoing cautionary statements. All such statements speak only as of the date made, and, except as required by law, the Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

15.11     Reservation of Rights; Waiver. If the Restructuring Transactions are not consummated, or if this Agreement is terminated for any reason pursuant to Section 13 (other than pursuant to Section 13.06), the Parties each fully reserve any and all of their respective rights, remedies, claims, and interests, subject to Sections 14 and Section 6 herein, in the case of any claim for breach of this Agreement.  Further, nothing herein shall be construed to prohibit any Party from appearing as a party in interest in any matter to be adjudicated in the Chapter 11 Cases, so long as, during the Agreement Effective Period, such appearance and the positions advocated in connection therewith are consistent with this Agreement and any Definitive Document and are not for the purpose of, and could not reasonably be expected to have the effect of, hindering, delaying, or preventing the consummation of the Restructuring Transactions.
 
15.12    Independent Due Diligence and Decision-Making. Each Consenting Creditor Party hereby confirms that its decision to execute this Agreement has been based upon its independent investigation of the operations, businesses, financial, and other conditions, and prospects of the Debtors.
 
15.13    Settlement or Compromise. Pursuant to Federal Rule of Evidence 408 and any other applicable rules of evidence, this Agreement and all negotiations relating hereto shall not be admissible into evidence in any proceeding other than a proceeding to enforce its terms, pursue the consummation of the Restructuring Transactions, or the payment of damages to which a Party may be entitled under this Agreement.
 
36

15.14    Specific Performance. It is understood and agreed by the Parties that money damages would be an insufficient remedy for any breach of this Agreement by any Party, and, except as otherwise provided herein (including Section 6.02 hereof), each non-breaching Party shall be entitled to specific performance and injunctive or other equitable relief (without the posting of any bond and without proof of actual damages) as a remedy of any such breach, including an order of the Bankruptcy Court or other court of competent jurisdiction requiring any Party to comply promptly with any of its obligations hereunder.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, none of the Parties will be liable for, and none of the Parties shall claim or seek to recover, any punitive, special, indirect, or consequential damages or damages for lost profits.
 
15.15    Several, Not Joint, Claims. Except where otherwise specified, the agreements, representations, warranties, and obligations of the Consenting Creditor Parties under this Agreement are, in all respects, several and not joint.
 
15.16    Severability and Construction. If any provision of this Agreement shall be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect if essential terms and conditions of this Agreement for each Party remain valid, binding, and enforceable.
 
15.17    Remedies Cumulative. Except as otherwise provided herein (including Section 6.02 hereof), all rights, powers, and remedies provided under this Agreement or otherwise available in respect hereof at Law or in equity shall be cumulative and not alternative, and the exercise of any right, power, or remedy thereof by any Party shall not preclude the simultaneous or later exercise of any other such right, power, or remedy by such Party.
 
15.18     Capacities of Consenting Lenders. Each Consenting Lender has entered into this Agreement on account of all Company Claims/Interests that it holds (directly or through discretionary accounts that it manages or advises) and, except where otherwise specified in this Agreement, shall take or refrain from taking all actions that it is obligated to take or refrain from taking under this Agreement with respect to all such Company Claims/Interests.
 
15.19    Email Consents. Where a written consent, acceptance, approval, or waiver is required pursuant to or contemplated by this Agreement, pursuant to Section 3, Section 14, or otherwise, including a written approval by the Debtors, the Required Consenting BrandCo Lenders, the Required Consenting 2016 Lenders, and the Creditors’ Committee, such written consent, acceptance, approval, or waiver shall be deemed to have occurred if, by agreement between counsel to the Parties submitting and receiving such consent, acceptance, approval, or waiver, it is conveyed in writing (including electronic mail) between each such counsel without representations or warranties of any kind on behalf of such counsel.
 
37

15.20    Enforceability of Agreement. Each of the Parties waives any right to assert that the exercise of termination rights under this Agreement is subject to the automatic stay provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, and expressly stipulates and consents hereunder to the prospective modification of the automatic stay provisions of the Bankruptcy Code for purposes of exercising termination rights under this Agreement, to the extent the Bankruptcy Court determines that such relief is required.
 
15.21  Relationship among Consenting Creditor Parties.
 
(a)      None of the Consenting Creditor Parties shall have any fiduciary duty, any duty of trust or confidence in any form, or other duties or responsibilities in any kind or form to each other, any Consenting Creditor Party, any Debtor, or any of the Debtor’s respective creditors or other stakeholders, and there are no commitments among or between the Consenting Lenders as a result of this Agreement or the transactions contemplated herein or in the Plan, in each case except as expressly set forth in this Agreement.  Nothing contained in this Agreement, and no action taken by any Consenting Lender pursuant hereto is intended to constitute the Consenting Lenders as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that any Consenting Lender is in any way acting in concert or as a member of a “group” with any other Consenting Lender or Consenting Lenders within the meaning of Rule 13d-5 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. As of the date hereof and for so long as this Agreement remains in effect, the Parties have no agreement, arrangement or understanding with respect to acting together for the purpose of acquiring, holding, voting or disposing of any securities of any of the Debtors and do not constitute a “group” within the meaning of Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act or Rule 13d-5 promulgated thereunder.
 
(b)      The Debtors acknowledge that the Consenting Lenders are engaged in a wide range of financial services and businesses, and, in furtherance of the foregoing, the Consenting Lenders and the Debtors acknowledge and agree that the obligations set forth in this Agreement shall only apply to the trading desk(s) and/or business group(s) of the Consenting Lenders that principally manage and/or supervise such Consenting Lender’s investment in the Debtors, and shall not apply to any other trading desk or business group of such Consenting Lender so long as they are not acting at the direction or for the benefit of such Consenting Lender.
 
15.22    Fees and Expenses. The Debtors shall promptly pay or reimburse when due all reasonable and documented fees and expenses of (a) the BrandCo Lender Group Advisors incurred prior to and during the Agreement Effective Period and after any termination pursuant to Section 13.06, and (b) subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein or in the Final DIP Order and consistent with the orders and procedures applicable to the payment of compensation to estate professionals, the Creditors’ Committee; provided that nothing herein shall alter or modify the Debtors’ payment obligations under the Final DIP Order or any other order of the Bankruptcy Court governing compensation of estate professionals.  On the Plan Effective Date, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Plan and so long as this Agreement has not been terminated as to all of the Consenting 2016 Lenders that are members of the Ad Hoc Group of 2016 Term Loan Lenders, the Debtors shall pay or reimburse all reasonable and documented fees and expenses of (x) the 2016 Term Loan Lender Group Advisors incurred prior to February 16, 2023, in an aggregate amount not to exceed $11 million (excluding any fees and expenses paid to the 2016 Term Loan Lender Group Advisors prior to February 16, 2023) and (y) Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, as counsel to the Ad Hoc Group of 2016 Term Loan Lenders, incurred after February 16, 2023 through the Plan Effective Date, in an aggregate amount not to exceed $350,000 per month (with such cap prorated for any partial months during such period); provided that such fees and expenses referenced in this clause (y) shall be limited to amounts incurred in furtherance of the Restructuring Transactions and shall be subject to the limitations on the use of funds set forth in paragraph 28 of the Final DIP Order.

ARTICLE III

Section 3.1          Premium Payable by the Debtors.  Subject to Section 3.2, as consideration for the Funding Commitment and the other agreements of the Equity Commitment Parties in this Agreement, Holdings shall pay or cause to be paid a nonrefundable aggregate premium of 12.5% of the Aggregate Rights Offering Amount (the “Backstop Commitment Premium”), payable in New Common Stock, to the Equity Commitment Parties on the Effective Date, calculated based on the Purchase Price. The Backstop Commitment Premium shall be payable, in accordance with Section 3.2, to the Equity Commitment Parties (including any Replacement Equity Commitment Party, but excluding any Defaulting Equity Commitment Party) or their designees in proportion to their respective Backstop Commitment Percentages at the time the payment of the Backstop Commitment Premium is made. Under no circumstances shall a reduction in the Aggregate Rights Offering Amount result in a reduction of the Backstop Commitment Premium, including to the extent the Adjusted Aggregate Rights Offering Amount is applicable.
 
Section 3.2          Payment of Premium.  The Backstop Commitment Premium shall be fully earned by the Equity Commitment Parties upon execution of this Agreement, nonrefundable and non-avoidable upon entry of the Backstop Order and shall be paid by Holdings, free and clear of any withholding or deduction for any applicable Taxes, on the Effective Date as set forth above. For the avoidance of doubt, to the extent payable in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the Backstop Commitment Premium will be payable regardless of the amount of Unsubscribed Shares (if any) actually purchased; provided that subject to Section 2.3, the Backstop Commitment Premium shall not be payable in respect of the Funding Commitments of any Defaulting Equity Commitment Party. Holdings shall satisfy its obligation to pay the Backstop Commitment Premium on the Effective Date by issuing the number of additional shares of New Common Stock (in each case rounded to the nearest whole share among the Equity Commitment Parties solely to avoid fractional shares of New Common Stock as the Required Equity Commitment Parties may determine in their sole discretion) to each Equity Commitment Party (or its designee pursuant to Section 2.7) equal to such Equity Commitment Party’s Backstop Commitment Premium Share Amount; provided that if the Closing does not occur, the Backstop Commitment Termination Premium shall be payable (in lieu of the Backstop Commitment Premium) in Cash, to the extent provided in (and in accordance with) Section 10.6. For the avoidance of doubt, in no event shall both the Backstop Commitment Premium and the Backstop Commitment Termination Premium be payable by the Debtors.
 
24

Section 3.3         Expense Reimbursement. (a) Whether or not the transactions contemplated hereunder are consummated, the Debtors agree to pay all of the reasonable and documented out of pocket fees and expenses incurred by the Initial Equity Commitment Parties before, on or after the date hereof until the termination of this Agreement in accordance with its terms that have not otherwise been paid pursuant to the RSA, the Final DIP Order or in connection with the Chapter 11 Cases, including: (A) the reasonable and documented fees and expenses (including reasonable travel costs and expenses) of the Initial Equity Commitment Parties Advisors in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the RSA; (B) all filing fees or other costs or fees associated with the matters contemplated by Section 5.10 and Section 6.14 (including, without limitation, all filing fees, if any, required by the HSR Act or any other Antitrust Law) in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses of the Equity Commitment Parties related thereto; and (C) all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket fees and expenses incurred in connection with any required regulatory filings in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (including, without limitation, filings done on Schedule 13D, Schedule 13G, Form 3 or Form 4, in each case, promulgated under the Exchange Act), in each case, that have been paid or are payable by the Equity Commitment Parties (such payment obligations set forth in clauses (A), (B), and (C) above, collectively, the “Expense Reimbursement”). The Expense Reimbursement shall, pursuant to the Backstop Order, constitute allowed administrative expenses of the Debtors’ estates under Sections 503(b) and 507 of the Bankruptcy Code, which, for the avoidance of doubt, shall be pari passu with all other administrative expenses of the Debtors’ estates; provided that nothing herein shall alter or modify the Debtors’ payment obligations under the Final DIP Order. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, this Section 3.3 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
 
(b)        The Expense Reimbursement as described in this Section 3.3 shall be paid in Cash in accordance with the terms herein. The Expense Reimbursement accrued through the date on which the Backstop Order is entered shall be paid when due (for the avoidance of doubt, (x) in no event shall such invoices be due earlier than ten days after receipt thereof and (y) the invoices that shall set forth such Expense Reimbursements shall not include time details). The Expense Reimbursement accrued thereafter shall be payable by the Debtors promptly when due. Unless otherwise ordered by the Bankruptcy Court, no recipient of any payment hereunder shall be required to file with respect thereto any interim or final fee application with the Bankruptcy Court with respect to such payment.
 
25

(c)          For the avoidance of doubt, nothing herein shall alter or modify the Debtors’ payment obligations under the Final DIP Order or the RSA.
 
Section 3.4          Tax Treatment.  The parties hereto agree that, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, the Backstop Commitment Premium and the Backstop Commitment Termination Premium shall be treated as a “put premium” paid to the Equity Commitment Parties (the “Intended Tax Treatment”).  Each party shall file all tax returns consistent with, and take no position inconsistent with such treatment (whether in audits, tax returns or otherwise) unless required to do so pursuant to a “determination” within the meaning of Section 1313(a) of the IRC.
 
Section 3.5          Integration; Administrative Expense.  The provisions for the payment of the Backstop Commitment Premium, the Backstop Commitment Termination Premium and Expense Reimbursement, and the indemnification provided herein, are an integral part of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and without these provisions the Equity Commitment Parties would not have entered into this Agreement. The Backstop Order and the Plan shall provide that the Backstop Commitment Premium, the Backstop Commitment Termination Premium, the Expense Reimbursement, and any indemnification provided herein shall constitute Allowed Administrative Claims of the Debtors’ estates under Sections 503(b) and 507 of the Bankruptcy Code. In addition and as a result thereof, the Plan contemplates, and the proposed Confirmation Order that will be filed by the Debtors will contemplate, that any New Common Stock issued as payment of the Backstop Commitment Premium shall be issuable under Section 1145 of the Bankruptcy Code.

Section 5.1          Incorporation.  Such Equity Commitment Party is validly existing and in good standing under the Laws of the state of its organization, and this Agreement is a legal, valid, and binding obligation of such Equity Commitment Party, enforceable against it in accordance with its terms, except as enforcement may be limited by applicable Laws relating to or limiting such Equity Commitment Party’s rights generally or by equitable principles relating to enforceability.
 
Section 5.2          Corporate Power and Authority.  Such Equity Commitment Party has (or will have, at the relevant time) all requisite corporate or other power and authority to enter into, execute, and deliver this Agreement and to effectuate the Restructuring Transactions contemplated by, and perform its respective obligations under, this Agreement.
 
Section 5.3          Execution and Delivery.  This Agreement and each other Definitive Document to which such Equity Commitment Party is a party (a) has been, or prior to its execution and delivery will be, duly and validly executed and delivered by such Equity Commitment Party and (b) upon entry of the Backstop Order and, as applicable, the Confirmation Order and assuming due and valid execution and delivery hereof and thereof by the Company and the other Debtors (as applicable), will constitute a legal, valid, and binding obligation of such Equity Commitment Party, enforceable against such Equity Commitment Party in accordance with their respective terms, except as enforcement may be limited by applicable Laws relating to or limiting creditors’ rights generally or by equitable principles relating to enforceability.
 
Section 5.4          No Registration.  Such Equity Commitment Party understands that (a) the Rights Offering Shares (including the Unsubscribed Shares and Direct Allocation Shares) and any New Common Stock issued to such Equity Commitment Party in satisfaction of the Backstop Commitment Premium have not been registered under the Securities Act by reason of a specific exemption from the registration provisions of the Securities Act, the availability of which depends on, among other things, the bona fide nature of the investment intent and the accuracy of such Equity Commitment Party’s representations as expressed herein or otherwise made pursuant hereto, and (b) the Rights Offering Shares (including the Unsubscribed Shares and the Direct Allocation Shares) issued to an underwriter as defined in Section 1145 of the Bankruptcy Code cannot be sold unless subsequently registered under the Securities Act or an exemption from registration is available.
 
Section 5.5          Purchasing Intent. Such Equity Commitment Party is not acquiring the Rights Offering Shares (including the Direct Allocation Shares and the Unsubscribed Shares) or any New Common Stock issued to such Equity Commitment Party in satisfaction of the Backstop Commitment Premium with the view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution thereof not in compliance with applicable securities Laws, and such Equity Commitment Party has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same, except in compliance with applicable securities Laws.

INDEMNIFICATION AND CONTRIBUTION
 
Section 9.1         Indemnification Obligations. Following the entry of the Backstop Order, but effective as of the date hereof, the Debtors (the “Indemnifying Parties,” and each, an “Indemnifying Party”) shall, jointly and severally, indemnify and hold harmless each Equity Commitment Party and its Affiliates, equity holders, members, partners, general partners, managers and its and their respective Representatives and controlling persons (each, an “Indemnified Person”) from and against any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and costs and expenses (other than Taxes of the Equity Commitment Parties except to the extent otherwise provided for in this Agreement) (collectively, “Losses”) that any such Indemnified Person may incur or to which any such Indemnified Person may become subject arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, the Plan, and the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby, including the Backstop Commitment, the Equity Rights Offering, the Expense Reimbursement, the payment of the Backstop Commitment Premium or the Backstop Commitment Termination Premium or the use of the proceeds of the Equity Rights Offering, or any claim, challenge, litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, regardless of whether any Indemnified Person is a party thereto, whether or not such proceedings are brought by the Debtors, the Reorganized Debtors, their respective equity holders, Affiliates, creditors or any other Person, and reimburse each Indemnified Person upon demand for reasonable documented out-of-pocket (with such documentation subject to redaction to preserve attorney client and work product privileges) legal or other third-party expenses incurred in connection with investigating, preparing to defend or defending, or providing evidence in or preparing to serve or serving as a witness with respect to, any lawsuit, investigation, claim or other proceeding relating to any of the foregoing (including in connection with the enforcement of the indemnification obligations set forth herein), irrespective of whether or not the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or the Plan are consummated or whether or not this Agreement is terminated; provided that the foregoing indemnity will not, as to any Indemnified Person, apply to Losses (a) as to a Defaulting Equity Commitment Party or its Related Parties, or (b) to the extent they are found by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction to arise from the willful misconduct, bad faith or gross negligence of such Indemnified Person. The Indemnified Persons are express third-party beneficiaries of this Article IX.
 
52

Section 9.2         Indemnification Procedure.   Promptly after receipt by an Indemnified Person of notice of the commencement of any claim, challenge, litigation, investigation or proceeding (an “Indemnified Claim”), such Indemnified Person will, if a claim is to be made hereunder against the Indemnifying Party in respect thereof, notify the Indemnifying Party in writing of the commencement thereof; provided that (a) the omission to so notify the Indemnifying Party will not relieve the Indemnifying Party from any liability that it may have hereunder except to the extent it has been materially prejudiced by such failure and (b) the omission to so notify the Indemnifying Party will not relieve the Indemnifying Party from any liability that it may have to such Indemnified Person otherwise than on account of this Agreement. In case any such Indemnified Claims are brought against any Indemnified Person and it notifies the Indemnifying Party of the commencement thereof, the Indemnifying Party will be entitled to participate therein, and, at its election by providing written notice to such Indemnified Person, the Indemnifying Party will be entitled to assume the defense thereof or participation therein, with counsel reasonably acceptable to such Indemnified Person; provided further, that if the parties (including any impleaded parties) to any such Indemnified Claims include both such Indemnified Person and the Indemnifying Party and based on advice of such Indemnified Person’s counsel there are legal defenses available to such Indemnified Person that are different from or additional to those available to the Indemnifying Party, such Indemnified Person shall have the right to select separate counsel to assert such legal defenses and to otherwise participate in the defense of such Indemnified Claims. Upon receipt of notice from the Indemnifying Party to such Indemnified Person of its election to so assume the defense of such Indemnified Claims with counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Person, the Indemnifying Party shall not be liable to such Indemnified Person for expenses incurred by such Indemnified Person in connection with the defense thereof or participation therein (other than reasonable documented out-of-pocket costs of investigation) unless (i) such Indemnified Person shall have employed separate counsel (in addition to any local counsel) in connection with the assertion of legal defenses in accordance with the proviso to the immediately preceding sentence (it being understood, however, that the Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for the expenses of more than one separate counsel representing the Indemnified Persons who are parties to such Indemnified Claims (in addition to one local counsel in each jurisdiction in which local counsel is required)), (ii) the Indemnifying Party shall not have employed counsel reasonably acceptable to such Indemnified Person to represent such Indemnified Person within a reasonable time after the Indemnifying Party has received notice of commencement of the Indemnified Claims from, or delivered on behalf of, the Indemnified Person, (iii) after the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of the Indemnified Claims, the Indemnified Person determines in good faith that the Indemnifying Party has failed or is failing to defend such claim and provides written notice of such determination, and such failure is not reasonably cured within ten (10) Business Days following receipt of such notice by the Indemnifying Party, or (iv) the Indemnifying Party shall have authorized in writing the employment of counsel for such Indemnified Person.
 
Section 9.3        Settlement of Indemnified Claims.   The Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any settlement of any Indemnified Claims effected by such Indemnified Person without the written consent of the Indemnifying Party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). If any settlement of any Indemnified Claims is consummated with the written consent of the Indemnifying Party or if there is a final judgment for the plaintiff in any such Indemnified Claims, the Indemnifying Party agrees to indemnify and hold harmless each Indemnified Person from and against any and all Losses by reason of such settlement or judgment to the extent such Losses are otherwise subject to indemnification by the Indemnifying Party hereunder in accordance with, and subject to the limitations of, this Article IX. Notwithstanding anything in this Article IX to the contrary, if at any time an Indemnified Person shall have requested the Indemnifying Party to reimburse such Indemnified Person for legal or other expenses in connection with investigating, responding to or defending any Indemnified Claims as contemplated by this Article IX, the Indemnifying Party shall be liable for any settlement of any Indemnified Claims effected without its written consent if (a) such settlement is entered into more than thirty (30) days after receipt by the Indemnifying Party of such request for reimbursement and (b) the Indemnifying Party shall not have reimbursed such Indemnified Person in accordance with such request prior to the date of such settlement. The Indemnifying Party shall not, without the prior written consent of an Indemnified Person (which consent shall be granted or withheld, conditioned or delayed in the Indemnified Person’s sole discretion), effect any settlement of any pending or threatened Indemnified Claims in respect of which indemnity or contribution has been sought hereunder by such Indemnified Person unless (i) such settlement includes an unconditional release of such Indemnified Person in form and substance satisfactory to such Indemnified Person from all liability on the claims that are the subject matter of such Indemnified Claims and (ii) such settlement does not include any statement as to or any admission of fault, culpability or a failure to act by or on behalf of any Indemnified Person.
 
53

Section 9.4         Contribution.   If for any reason the foregoing indemnification is unavailable to any Indemnified Person or insufficient to hold it harmless from Losses that are subject to indemnification pursuant to Section 9.1, then the Indemnifying Party shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Indemnified Person as a result of such Loss in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only the relative benefits received by the Indemnifying Party, on the one hand, and such Indemnified Person, on the other hand, but also the relative fault of the Indemnifying Party, on the one hand, and such Indemnified Person, on the other hand, as well as any relevant equitable considerations. It is hereby agreed that the relative benefits to the Indemnifying Party, on the one hand, and all Indemnified Persons, on the other hand, shall be deemed to be in the same proportion as (a) the total value received or proposed to be received by Holdings pursuant to the issuance and sale of the Rights Offering Shares in the Equity Rights Offering contemplated by this Agreement and the Plan bears to (b) the Backstop Commitment Premium paid or proposed to be paid to the Equity Commitment Parties. Subject to Section 10.6, the Indemnifying Parties also agree that no Indemnified Person shall have any liability based on their comparative or contributory negligence or otherwise to the Indemnifying Parties, any Person asserting claims on behalf of or in right of any of the Indemnifying Parties, or any other Person in connection with an Indemnified Claim.
 
Section 9.5        Treatment of Indemnification Payments.   All amounts paid by an Indemnifying Party to an Indemnified Person under this Article IX shall, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, be treated for all Tax purposes as adjustments to the Backstop Commitment Premium or the Backstop Commitment Termination Premium of such Indemnified Person, as the case may be, or, to the extent arising after the Closing Date, the Purchase Price of the Rights Offering Shares subscribed for by such Indemnified Person in the Equity Rights Offering, or the Unsubscribed Shares purchased by such Indemnified Person, as applicable. The provisions of this Article IX are an integral part of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and without these provisions the Equity Commitment Parties would not have entered into this Agreement. The obligations of the Debtors under this Article IX shall constitute allowed administrative expenses of the Debtors’ estate under Sections 503(b) and 507 of the Bankruptcy Code and are payable without further Order of the Bankruptcy Court, and that the Debtors may comply with the requirements of this Article IX without further Order of the Bankruptcy Court.
 
Section 9.6        No Survival.   All representations, warranties, covenants and agreements made in this Agreement shall not survive the Closing Date except for covenants and agreements that by their express terms are to be satisfied after the Closing Date, which covenants and agreements shall survive until satisfied in accordance with their terms. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the indemnification and other obligations of each of the Debtors pursuant to this Article IX and the other obligations set forth in Section 10.6 shall survive the Closing Date until the latest date permitted by applicable Law and, if applicable, be assumed by each of the Reorganized Debtors.

Except as expressly provided in Article IX with respect to the Indemnified Persons, this Agreement (including the documents and instruments referred to in this Agreement) is not intended to and does not confer upon any Person any rights or remedies under this Agreement other than the Parties.
 
Section 11.3      Prior Negotiations; Entire Agreement.   (a) This Agreement (including the exhibits, the schedules, and the other documents and instruments referred to herein and in the RSA) constitutes the entire agreement of the Parties and supersedes all prior agreements, arrangements or understandings, whether written or oral, among the Parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement, except that the Parties hereto acknowledge that any confidentiality agreements heretofore executed between or among the Parties and the RSA  will each continue in full force and effect.
 
(b)       Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Plan (including any amendments, supplements or modifications thereto) or the Confirmation Order (and any amendments, supplements or modifications thereto) or an affirmative vote to accept the First Amended Plan submitted by any Equity Commitment Party, nothing contained in the Plan (including any amendments, supplements or modifications thereto) or Confirmation Order (including any amendments, supplements or modifications thereto) shall alter, amend or modify the rights of the Equity Commitment Parties under this Agreement unless such alteration, amendment or modification has been made in accordance with Section 11.7.
 
Section 11.4        Governing Law; Venue.   THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH (a) THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK WITHOUT REGARD FOR ANY CONFLICTS OF LAW PRINCIPLES THAT WOULD APPLY THE LAWS OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION, AND (b) TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE, THE BANKRUPTCY CODE. THE PARTIES CONSENT AND AGREE THAT ANY ACTION TO ENFORCE THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY DISPUTE, WHETHER SUCH DISPUTES ARISE IN LAW OR EQUITY, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT AND THE AGREEMENTS, INSTRUMENTS AND DOCUMENTS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY SHALL BE BROUGHT EXCLUSIVELY IN THE BANKRUPTCY COURT (OR, SOLELY TO THE EXTENT THE BANKRUPTCY COURT DECLINES JURISDICTION OVER SUCH ACTION OR DISPUTE, IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK OR ANY NEW YORK STATE COURT SITTING IN NEW YORK CITY). THE PARTIES CONSENT TO AND AGREE TO SUBMIT TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OF THE BANKRUPTCY COURT (OR, SOLELY TO THE EXTENT THE BANKRUPTCY COURT DECLINES JURISDICTION OVER SUCH ACTION OR DISPUTE, IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK OR ANY NEW YORK STATE COURT SITTING IN NEW YORK CITY).

THE PARTIES HEREBY AGREE THAT MAILING OF PROCESS OR OTHER PAPERS IN CONNECTION WITH ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING TO AN ADDRESS PROVIDED IN WRITING BY THE RECIPIENT OF SUCH MAILING, OR IN SUCH OTHER MANNER AS MAY BE PERMITTED BY LAW, SHALL BE VALID AND SUFFICIENT SERVICE THEREOF AND HEREBY WAIVE ANY OBJECTIONS TO SERVICE ACCOMPLISHED IN THE MANNER HEREIN PROVIDED.

Section 11.5       Waiver of Jury Trial.   EACH PARTY HEREBY WAIVES ALL RIGHTS TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY JURISDICTION IN ANY ACTION, SUIT OR PROCEEDING BROUGHT TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE AMONG THE PARTIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE.
 
Section 11.6        Counterparts.   This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, all of which will be considered one and the same agreement and will become effective when counterparts have been signed by each of the Parties and delivered to each other Party (including via facsimile or other electronic transmission), it being understood that each Party need not sign the same counterpart. Any facsimile or electronic signature shall be treated in all respects as having the same effect as having an original signature.
 
Section 11.7        Waivers and Amendments; Rights Cumulative; Consent.   This Agreement may be amended, restated, modified or changed only by a written instrument (with email being sufficient) delivered by the Debtors and the Required Equity Commitment Parties; provided that, in addition, (a) any proposed amendment that would decrease the Backstop Commitment Percentage (which, for the avoidance of doubt, includes the Backstop Commitment), Direct Allocation Percentage (which, for the avoidance of doubt, includes the Direct Allocation Commitment), share of the Backstop Commitment Premium, or share of the Backstop Commitment Termination Premium of a BrandCo Lender Equity Commitment Party in connection with a pro rata reduction among all BrandCo Lender Equity Commitment Parties (at the time directly preceding such amendment) shall require the prior written consent (with email being sufficient) of the Supermajority Equity Commitment Parties; (b) any proposed amendment that would decrease Backstop Commitment Percentage (which, for the avoidance of doubt, includes the Backstop Commitment), Direct Allocation Percentage (which, for the avoidance of doubt, includes the Direct Allocation Commitment), share of the Backstop Commitment Premium, or share of the Backstop Commitment Termination Premium of a 2016 Lender Equity Commitment Party in connection with a pro rata reduction among all 2016 Lender Equity Commitment Parties (at the time directly preceding such amendment) shall require the prior written consent (with email being sufficient) of the Required Consenting 2016 Lenders;  (c) any proposed modification, amendment, waiver or supplement that would, directly or indirectly, (i) increase an Equity Commitment Party’s Purchase Price in respect of its Rights Offering Shares, (ii) increase an Equity Commitment Party’s Backstop Commitment Percentage (which, for the avoidance of doubt, includes the Backstop Commitment) or Direct Allocation Percentage (which, for the avoidance of doubt, includes the Direct Allocation Commitment), (iii) decrease the Backstop Commitment Percentage (which, for the avoidance of doubt, includes the Backstop Commitment), Direct Allocation Percentage (which, for the avoidance of doubt, includes the Direct Allocation Commitment), share of the Backstop Commitment Premium, or share of the Backstop Commitment Termination Premium (A) of a BrandCo Lender Equity Commitment Party on a non-pro rata basis vis-à-vis the other BrandCo Lender Equity Commitment Parties or (B) of a 2016 Lender Equity Commitment Party vis-à-vis the other 2016 Lender Equity Commitment Parties (in each case, at the time directly preceding such amendment); (iv) otherwise disproportionately and materially adversely affect a BrandCo Lender Equity Commitment Party vis-à-vis the other BrandCo Lender Equity Commitment Parties or a 2016 Lender Equity Commitment Party vis-à-vis the other 2016 Lender Equity Commitment Parties; or (v) modify a Significant Term shall require the prior written consent (with email being sufficient) of each affected Equity Commitment Party; and (d) any proposed modification, amendment, waiver or supplement that would materially, disproportionately and adversely affect the 2016 Lender Equity Commitment Parties vis-à-vis the BrandCo Lender Equity Commitment Parties (including on account of any modification to the Consenting 2016 Lender Significant Terms) shall require the consent of the Required Consenting 2016 Lenders.
 
63

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Schedule 2.1 and Schedule 2.2 shall be revised as necessary without requiring a written instrument to reflect conforming changes in the composition of the Equity Commitment Parties and Backstop Commitment Percentages as a result of Transfers of any applicable Funding Commitments permitted and consummated in compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
 
The terms and conditions of this Agreement (other than the conditions set forth in Section 8.1 and Section 8.4, the waiver of which shall be governed solely by Article VIII) may be waived (a) by the Debtors only by a written instrument executed by the Debtors and (b) by the Required Equity Commitment Parties only by a written instrument executed by the Required Equity Commitment Parties.
 
No delay on the part of any Party in exercising any right, power or privilege pursuant to this Agreement will operate as a waiver thereof, nor will any waiver on the part of any Party of any right, power or privilege pursuant to this Agreement, nor will any single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege pursuant to this Agreement, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege pursuant to this Agreement. The rights and remedies provided pursuant to this Agreement are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies which any party hereto otherwise may have at law or in equity.
 
Section 11.8        Headings.   The headings in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and will not in any way affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.
 
Section 11.9       Specific Performance.   The Parties agree that irreparable damage would occur if any provision of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with the terms hereof and that the Parties shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions, including pursuant to an order of the Bankruptcy Court or other court of competent jurisdiction, without the necessity of posting a bond to prevent breaches of this Agreement or to enforce specifically the performance of the terms and provisions hereof, in addition to any other remedy to which they are entitled at law or in equity. Unless otherwise expressly stated in this Agreement, no right or remedy described or provided in this Agreement is intended to be exclusive or to preclude a Party from pursuing other rights and remedies to the extent available under this Agreement, at law or in equity.
 
Section 11.10      Damages.   Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, none of the Parties will be liable for, and none of the Parties shall claim or seek to recover, any punitive, special, indirect or consequential damages or damages for lost profits in connection with the breach or termination of this Agreement.
 
64

Section 11.11      No Reliance.   No Equity Commitment Party or any of its Related Parties shall have any duties or obligations to the other Equity Commitment Parties in respect of this Agreement, the Plan or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, except those expressly set forth herein. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, (a) no Equity Commitment Party or any of its Related Parties shall be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties to the other Equity Commitment Parties, (b) no Equity Commitment Party or any of its Related Parties shall have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers on behalf of any other Equity Commitment Party, (c) no Equity Commitment Party or any of its Related Parties shall have any duty to the other Equity Commitment Parties to obtain, through the exercise of diligence or otherwise, to investigate, confirm, or disclose to the other Equity Commitment Parties any information relating to the Debtors that may have been communicated to or obtained by such Equity Commitment Party or any of its Affiliates in any capacity, (d) no Equity Commitment Party may rely, and confirms that it has not relied, on any due diligence investigation that any other Equity Commitment Party or any Person acting on behalf of such other Equity Commitment Party may have conducted with respect to the Debtors or any of their Affiliates or any of their respective securities, and (e) each Equity Commitment Party acknowledges that no other Equity Commitment Party is acting as a placement agent, initial purchaser, underwriter, broker or finder with respect to its Unsubscribed Shares or Backstop Commitment Percentage of its Backstop Commitment.
 
Section 11.12      Settlement Discussions.   This Agreement and the transactions contemplated herein are part of a proposed settlement of a dispute between the Parties. Nothing herein shall be deemed an admission of any kind.

The Parties agree that any valuations of Holdings’ or other Debtor’s assets or estates, whether implied or otherwise, arising from this Agreement shall not be binding for any other purpose, including determining recoveries under the Plan, and that this Agreement does not limit the Parties’ rights regarding valuation in the Chapter 11 Cases.
 
Section 11.13      No Recourse.   Notwithstanding anything that may be expressed or implied in this Agreement, and notwithstanding the fact that certain of the Parties may be partnerships or limited liability companies, each Party covenants, agrees and acknowledges that no recourse under this Agreement or any documents or instruments delivered in connection with this Agreement shall be had against any Party’s Affiliates or any of the respective Related Parties of such Party or of the Affiliates of such Party (in each case other than the Parties to this Agreement and each of their respective successors and permitted assignees under this Agreement), whether by the enforcement of any assessment or by any legal or equitable proceeding, or by virtue of any applicable Law, it being expressly agreed and acknowledged that no personal liability whatsoever shall attach to, be imposed on or otherwise be incurred by any of such Related Parties, as such, for any obligation or liability of any Party under this Agreement or any documents or instruments delivered in connection herewith for any claim based on, in respect of or by reason of such obligations or liabilities or their creation; provided, however, that nothing in this Section 11.13 shall relieve or otherwise limit the liability of any Party hereto or any of their respective successors or permitted assigns for any breach or violation of its obligations under this Agreement or such other documents or instruments. For the avoidance of doubt, none of the Parties will have any recourse, be entitled to commence any proceeding or make any claim under this Agreement or in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby except against any of the Parties or their respective successors and permitted assigns, as applicable.
 
65

Section 11.14      Severability.   In the event that any one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement are held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect for any reason, the validity, legality and enforceability of any such provision in every other respect and of the remaining provisions contained herein will not be in any way impaired thereby, it being intended that all of the rights and privileges of the parties hereto will be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
 
Section 11.15      Enforceability of Agreement.  Each of the Parties waives any right to assert that the exercise of termination rights under this Agreement is subject to the automatic stay provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, and expressly stipulates and consents hereunder to the prospective modification of the automatic stay provisions of the Bankruptcy Code for purposes of exercising termination rights under this Agreement, to the extent the Bankruptcy Court determines that such relief is required.
