SECTION 7.07. Limitation on Liens.
(a) The Company will not, nor will it permit any Significant Subsidiary to, (1) issue, incur, assume or permit to exist any Debt, if such Debt is secured by a Lien on any Principal Property (whether such Principal Property was owned at March 11, 2004 or thereafter acquired), unless the Company provides that Outstanding Bonds will be equally and ratably secured with such secured Debt or (2) incur or permit to exist any Attributable Debt in respect of Principal Property; provided, however, that the foregoing restriction shall not apply to:
(i) to the extent the Company or any Significant Subsidiary consolidates with, or merges with or into, another entity, Liens on the property of such entity securing Debt in existence on the date of such consolidation or merger, provided that such Debt and Liens were not created or incurred in anticipation of such consolidation or merger and that such Liens do not extend to or cover any Principal Property;
(ii) Liens on property acquired after March 11, 2004 and existing at the time of such acquisition, as long as the Lien was not created or incurred in anticipation thereof and does not extend to or cover any other Principal Property;
(iii) Liens of any kind, including purchase money Liens, conditional sales agreements or title retention agreements and similar agreements, upon any property acquired, constructed, developed or improved by the Company or any Significant Subsidiary (whether alone or in association with others) which do not exceed the cost or value of the property acquired, constructed, developed or improved and which are created prior to, at the time of, or within twelve (12) months after such acquisition (or in the case of property constructed, developed or improved, within twelve (12) months after the completion of such construction, development or improvement and commencement of full commercial operation of such property, whichever is later) to secure or provide for the payment of any part of the purchase price or cost thereof; provided that the Liens shall not extend to any Principal Property other than the property so acquired, constructed, developed or improved;
(iv) Liens in favor of the United States, any state or any foreign country or any department, agency or instrumentality or political subdivision of any such jurisdiction to secure payments pursuant to any contract or statute or to secure any indebtedness incurred for the purpose of financing all or any part of the purchase price or cost of constructing or improving the property subject to such Lien, including Liens related to governmental obligations the interest on which is tax-exempt under Section 103 of the Internal Revenue Code or any successor section of the Internal Revenue Code;
(v) Liens in favor of the Company, one or more Significant Subsidiaries of the Company, one or more wholly-owned Subsidiaries of the Company or any of the foregoing combination; and
(vi) replacements, extensions or renewals (or successive replacements, extensions or renewals), in whole or in part, of any Lien, or of any agreement, referred to above in clauses (i) through (v) inclusive, or replacements, extensions or renewals of the Debt secured thereby (to the extent that the amount of Debt secured by any such Lien is not increased from the amount originally so secured, plus any premium, interest, fee or expenses payable in connection with any replacements, refundings, refinancings, remarketings, extensions or renewals); provided that such replacement, extension or renewal is limited to all or a part of the same property (plus improvements thereon or additions or accessions thereto) that secured the Lien replaced, extended or renewed.
(b) Notwithstanding the restriction in subsection (a) of this Section 7.07, the Company or any Significant Subsidiary may (1) issue, incur or assume Debt secured by a Lien not described in clauses (i) through (vi) of subsection (a) above on any Principal Property owned at March 11, 2004 or thereafter acquired without providing that the Outstanding Bonds be equally and ratably secured with such Debt and (2) issue or permit to exist Attributable Debt in respect of Principal Property, in either case so long as the aggregate amount of such secured Debt and Attributable Debt, together with the aggregate amount of all other Debt secured by Liens on Principal Property not described in clauses (i) through (vi) of subsection (a) above then outstanding and all other Attributable Debt, does not exceed 10% of the Net Tangible Assets of the Company, as determined by the Company as of a month end not more than 90 days prior to the closing or consummation of the proposed transaction.
(c) For purposes of determining compliance with this Section 7.07, in the event that any Lien at any time meets the criteria of more than one of the categories described in clauses (i) through (vi) above of Section 7.07(a), or is entitled to be created pursuant to Section 7.07(b), the Company will be permitted to classify (and later reclassify) in whole or in part in its sole discretion such Lien in any manner that complies with this Section 7.07.
(d) For purposes of determining compliance with any Dollar-denominated restriction on the incurrence of Debt secured by Liens on Principal Property, the Dollar-equivalent principal amount of Debt denominated in a foreign currency will be calculated based on the relevant currency exchange rate in effect on the date such Debt was incurred, in the case of term Debt, or first committed, in the case of revolving credit Debt; provided that if such Debt is incurred to refinance other Debt denominated in the same foreign currency, and such refinancing would cause the applicable Dollar-denominated restriction to be exceeded if calculated at the relevant currency exchange rate in effect on the date of such refinancing, the Dollar-denominated restriction will be deemed not to have been exceeded so long as the principal amount of the refinancing Debt does not exceed the principal amount of the Debt being refinanced. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 7.07, the maximum amount of Debt secured by Liens on Principal Property that the Company or any Significant Subsidiary may incur pursuant to this covenant will not be deemed to be exceeded solely as a result of fluctuations in the exchange rate of currencies.
(e) For purposes of this Section 7.07, “Debt” of a Significant Subsidiary shall mean any debt of such Significant Subsidiary for money borrowed and guarantees by such Significant Subsidiary of debt for money borrowed, but in each case excluding liabilities in respect of Capital Lease Obligations or Swap Agreements.
