Matters Applicable to All Requests for Compensation.
If the Administrative Agent or any Lender claims compensation under this Article III, it shall deliver a certificate to the Borrowers contemporaneously with the demand for payment setting forth in reasonable detail a calculation of the additional amount or amounts to be paid to it hereunder which shall be conclusive in the absence of demonstrable error. In determining such amount, the Administrative Agent or such Lender may use any reasonable averaging and attribution methods.
With respect to any Lenders claim for compensation under any of Sections 3.01 through 3.05, the Borrowers shall not be required to compensate such Lender for any amount incurred more than 180 days prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrowers of the event that gives rise to such claim; provided that, if the circumstance giving rise to such increased cost or reduction is retroactive, then such 180-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof. If any Lender requests compensation from any Borrower under Section 3.04, the Company may, by notice to such Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), suspend the obligation of such Lender to make or continue from one Interest Period to another Eurodollar Rate Loans, or to convert Base Rate Loans into Eurodollar Rate Loans, until the event or condition giving rise to such request ceases to be in
effect (in which case the provisions of Section 3.07(c) shall be applicable); provided that such suspension shall not affect the right of such Lender to receive the compensation so requested.
If the obligation of any Lender to make or continue from one Interest Period to another any Eurodollar Rate Loan (or to convert Base Rate Loans into Eurodollar Rate Loans) shall be suspended pursuant to Section 3.07(b) hereof, such Lender's Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be automatically converted into Base Rate Loans on the last day(s) of the then current Interest Period(s) for such Eurodollar Rate Loans (or, in the case of an immediate conversion required by Section 3.02, on such earlier date as required by Law) and, unless and until such Lender gives notice as provided below that the circumstances specified in Sections 3.01 through 3.04 hereof that gave rise to such conversion no longer exist: (i) to the extent that such Lender's Eurodollar Rate Loans have been so converted, all payments and prepayments of principal that would otherwise be applied to such Lender's Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be applied instead to its Base Rate Loans; and (ii) all Loans that would otherwise be made or continued from one Interest Period to another by such Lender as Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be made or continued instead as Base Rate Loans, and all Base Rate Loans of such Lender that would otherwise be converted into Eurodollar Rate Loans shall remain as Base Rate Loans.
If any Lender gives notice to the Company (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) that the circumstances specified in any of Sections 3.01 through 3.04 that gave rise to the conversion of such Lender's Eurodollar Rate Loans pursuant to this Section 3.07 no longer exist (which such Lender agrees to do promptly upon such circumstances ceasing to exist) at a time when Eurodollar Rate Loans made by other Lenders are outstanding, such Lender's Base Rate Loans shall be automatically converted, on the first day(s) of the next succeeding Interest Period(s) for such outstanding Eurodollar Rate Loans, to the extent necessary so that, after giving effect thereto, all Loans held by the Lenders holding Eurodollar Rate Loans and by such Lender are held pro rata (as to principal amounts, interest rate basis, and Interest Periods) in accordance with their respective Commitments.
Each Lender agrees that (i) upon the occurrence of any event giving rise to the operation of Section 3.01(b) or (d) with respect to such Lender it will, if requested by the Company, use commercially reasonable efforts (subject to such Lender's internal policies and any legal or regulatory restrictions) to avoid the consequences of such event, including to designate another Lending Office for any Loan or Letter of Credit affected by such event and (ii) if any Lender (A) requests compensation under Section 3.04, or (B) notifies any Borrower that it has determined that it is unlawful for its applicable Lending Office to make, maintain or fund Eurodollar Rate Loans, or to determine or charge interest rates based upon the Eurodollar Rate, then such Lender will, if requested by the Borrower, use commercially reasonable efforts to designate another Lending Office for any Loan or Letter of Credit affected by such event; provided that in each case, such efforts are made on terms that, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, cause such Lender and its Lending Office(s) to suffer no material economic, legal or regulatory disadvantage, and provided further that nothing in this Section 3.07(e) shall affect or postpone any of the Obligations of any Borrower or the rights of such Lender pursuant to Section 3.01(b) or (d), 3.02 or 3.04.
