This Waiver is subject to the provisions of Section 9.01 of the Credit Agreement.

SECTION 3. Representations and Warranties of the Borrower . The Borrower represents and warrants that the representations and warranties contained in Section 4.01 of the Credit Agreement are correct on and as of the date hereof and, other than as specifically waived in this Waiver, no event has occurred and is continuing that constitutes a Default.

SECTION 4. Effect on the Credit Agreement and the Loan Documents . (a) The Credit Agreement and the Loan Documents, except to the extent of the waiver specifically provided above, are and shall continue to be in full force and effect and are hereby in all respects ratified and confirmed.
