In addition, the Fourth Amendment favorably updates the commitment fee in the corporate ratings-based pricing grid; increases the permitted combined leverage ratio to a ratio of 3:50to1:00; and makes certain other amendments to the provisions of the Credit Agreement.

Certain of the lenders under the Credit Agreement, or their affiliates, have in the past performed, and may in the future from time to time perform, investment banking, financial advisory, commercial banking, and other services in the ordinary course of business for the Company and its subsidiaries, for which they have received, and may in the future receive, customary compensation and, in some cases, customary indemnification and/or reimbursement of expenses.

The foregoing description is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Fourth Amendment filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference, as well as the complete text of the Credit Agreement.
