SECTION 3. Representations and Warranties of the Borrower. The Borrower represents and warrants as follows:

(a) Corporate Status. Each Loan Party is duly organized or formed, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of incorporation or organization and possesses all powers (corporate or otherwise) and all other authorizations and licenses necessary to carry on its business, except where the failure to so possess would not have a Material Adverse Effect.

No Loan Party is in violation of any such Requirements of Law or in breach of any such contract, loan agreement, indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, lease or other instrument, the violation or breach of which would be reasonably likely to have a Material Adverse Effect.

(c) Authorization. No authorization or approval or other action by, and no notice to or filing with, any governmental authority or regulatory body is required for the due execution, delivery and performance by any Loan Party of this Amendment.

(d) Binding Effect. Each of this Amendment and the Credit Agreement, as amended by this Amendment, is the legal, valid and binding obligation of each Loan Party enforceable against such Loan Party in accordance with its terms, except as limited by bankruptcy, insolvency or other laws of general application relating to or affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and general principles of equity (regardless of whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law).

 

3


(e) Litigation. There is no pending or, to the Borrower’s knowledge, threatened action or proceeding affecting the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries before any court, governmental agency or arbitrator, (i) which has a reasonable probability (taking into account the exhaustion of all appeals and the assertion of all defenses) of having a Material Adverse Effect or (ii) which purports to affect the legality, validity or enforceability of this Amendment.

(f) Financial Statements. The Consolidated balance sheets of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries as of February 3, 2007, and the related Consolidated statements of income and retained earnings of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries for the Fiscal Year then ended, certified by Deloitte & Touche LLP, copies of which have been furnished to each Lender Party, fairly present the Consolidated financial condition of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries as at such date and the results of the operations of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries for the period ended on such date, all in accordance with GAAP consistently applied.

(b) The Credit Agreement, as specifically amended by this Amendment, is and shall continue to be in full force and effect and is hereby in all respects ratified and confirmed.

(c) The execution, delivery and effectiveness of this Amendment shall not, except as expressly provided herein, operate as a waiver of any right, power or remedy of any Lender or the Agent under the Credit Agreement, nor constitute a waiver of any provision of the Credit Agreement.

SECTION 5. Costs and Expenses. The Borrower agrees to pay on demand all reasonable and documented costs and expenses of the Agent in connection with the preparation, execution, delivery and administration, modification and amendment of this Amendment and the other documents to be delivered hereunder (including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel for the Agent).

SECTION 6. Execution in Counterparts. This Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and all of which taken together shall constitute but one and the same agreement. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page to this Amendment by telecopier shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Amendment.
