The term “Agreement” as used in the Credit Agreement and the term “Credit Agreement” as used in the other Loan Documents or any other instrument, document or writing furnished to the Administrative Agent, the Canadian Agent, or any Lender by or on behalf of any Loan Party shall mean the Credit Agreement as hereby amended.
     9. Expenses. Each Borrower agrees to pay within fifteen (15) days after demand all reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable counsel’s fees) incurred in connection with the preparation, reproduction, execution and delivery of this Amendment and with respect to advising the Administrative Agent as to its rights and responsibilities under the Credit Agreement, as hereby amended.

No investigation at any time made by or on

5


 

behalf of the Lenders shall diminish the Lenders’ right to rely on such representations, warranties and covenants.
     13. Counterparts. This Amendment may be executed in several counterparts, and by the Parties, the Guarantors and the Pledgors on separate counterparts, and each counterpart, when so executed and delivered, shall constitute an original instrument, and all such separate counterparts shall constitute but one and the same instrument. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page to any Loan Document by facsimile or internet transmission shall be as effective as delivery of an original, manually executed counterpart thereof.
     14. Descriptive Headings. The section headings in this Amendment have been inserted for convenience only and shall be given no substantive meaning or significance whatsoever in construing the terms and provisions of this Amendment.
     15. Provisions Incorporated by Reference.
