Item 1. Business

GENERAL

In this Form 10-K, all references to the "Company", "Movado Group" or "MGI" include Movado Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries, unless the context requires otherwise.

Movado Group, Inc. is a manufacturer, distributor and retailer of fine watches and jewelry. Its portfolio of brands is comprised of Movado(R), Ebel(R), Concord(R), ESQ(R) SWISS ("ESQ"), Coach(R) Watches, HUGO BOSS(R) Watches, Juicy Couture(TM) Watches and Tommy Hilfiger(R) Watches and beginning January 2007, Lacoste(R) Watches. The Company is a leader in the design, development, marketing and distribution of watch brands sold in almost every major category comprising the watch industry. The Company also designs, develops and markets proprietary Movado-branded jewelry, tabletop and accessory products which it retails in its luxury Movado Boutiques.

The Company was incorporated in New York in 1967 under the name North American Watch Corporation, to acquire Piaget Watch Corporation and Corum Watch Corporation, which had been, respectively, the exclusive importers and distributors of Piaget and Corum watches in the United States since the 1950's. The Company sold its Piaget and Corum distribution businesses in 1999 and 2000, respectively, to focus on its own portfolio of brands. Since its incorporation, the Company has developed its brand-building reputation and distinctive image across an expanding number of brands and geographic markets. Strategic acquisitions and their subsequent growth, along with license agreements have played an important role in the expansion of the Company's brand portfolio.

In 1970, the Company acquired the Concord brand and the Swiss company that had been manufacturing Concord watches since 1908. In 1983, the Company acquired the U.S. distributor of Movado watches and substantially all of the assets related to the Movado brand from the Swiss manufacturer of Movado watches. The Company changed its name to Movado Group, Inc. in 1996. In March 2004, the Company completed its acquisition of Ebel, one of the world's premier luxury watch brands that was established in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland in 1911.

The Company is very selective in its licensing strategy and chooses to enter long-term partnerships with only powerful brands that are leaders in their respective businesses. Under an exclusive agreement with The Hearst Corporation, the Company launched ESQ in 1993. In 1999, the Company launched Coach Watches under an exclusive agreement with Coach, Inc., and in 2001 Tommy Hilfiger Watches under an exclusive agreement with Tommy Hilfiger, Inc.

On October 7, 1993, the Company completed a public offering of 2,666,667 shares of common stock, par value $.01 per share. On October 21, 1997, the Company completed a secondary stock offering in which 1,500,000 shares of common stock were issued. On May 21, 2001, the Company moved from the NASDAQ National Market to the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE"). The Company's common stock is traded on the NYSE under the trading symbol MOV.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Effective March 21, 2005, the Company entered into an exclusive worldwide license agreement with HUGO BOSS to design, produce and market a collection of watches under the BOSS(TM) and HUGO(TM) brand names. In 2005, the Company introduced a limited number of HUGO BOSS watch models, with a major launch of a new collection planned for Spring 2006 at Baselworld, the annual watch and jewelry trade show held in Basel,

2

Switzerland. The HUGO BOSS collection will be sold through select distribution outlets in Europe, the Americas and Asia, as well as HUGO BOSS retail locations.

On August 31, 2005, the Company signed a joint venture agreement ("JV Agreement") with Financiere TWC SA ("TWC"), a French company with established distribution, marketing and sales operations in France and Germany. Under the JV Agreement, the Company and TWC control 51% and 49%, respectively, of MGI-TWC B.V., a Dutch holding company that owns MGI-TWC SAS, a French corporation, and MGI-TWC GmbH, a German corporation (collectively, the "Subsidiaries"). The Subsidiaries are responsible for the marketing, distribution and sale in France and Germany of the Company's licensed HUGO BOSS and Tommy Hilfiger brands, as well as future brands licensed to the Company, subject to the terms of the applicable license agreement. The terms of the JV Agreement include financial performance measures which, if not attained, give either party the right to terminate the JV Agreement after the fifth (5th) and the tenth (10th) year (January 31, 2011 and January 31, 2016); restrictions on the transfer of shares in the Dutch holding company; and a buy out right whereby the Company can purchase all of TWC's shares in the holding company as of July 1, 2016 and every 5th anniversary thereafter at a pre-determined price. As of January 31, 2006, there were no transactions between the Company and TWC.

In November 2005, Movado Group, Inc. entered into an exclusive worldwide license agreement with L.C. Licensing, Inc. to design, produce and market a collection of watches under the Juicy Couture and Couture Couture brand names. Juicy Couture Watches are scheduled to launch in Fall 2006 and will be sold through select high-end retailers initially in the United States, followed by Europe and Asia.

On March 27, 2006, the Company entered into an exclusive worldwide license agreement with Lacoste, S.A., Sporloisirs, S.A. and Lacoste Alligator, S.A. to design, produce, market and distribute Lacoste watches that will be sold under the LACOSTE name and the distinctive Lacoste "alligator" logo beginning in the first half of 2007.

Movado

Founded in 1881 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, Movado is an icon of modern design. Today the brand includes a line of watches, inspired by the simplicity of the Bauhaus movement, including the world famous Movado Museum watch and a number of other watch collections with more traditional dial designs. The design for the Movado Museum watch was the first watch design chosen by the Museum of Modern Art for its permanent collection. It has since been honored by other museums throughout the world. All Movado watches have Swiss movements and are made with 14 or 18 karat gold, 18 karat gold finish, stainless steel or a combination of 18 karat gold finish and stainless steel.

The new HUGO BOSS watch collection will include classy, sporty, elegant and fashion timepieces with suggested retail prices between $195 and $695.

DESIGN

The Company's continued emphasis on innovation and distinctive design has been an important contributor to the prominence, strength and reputation of Movado Group's brands. The Company's products are created and developed by in-house design teams in both Switzerland and the United States, in cooperation with various outside sources, including licensors' design teams. Senior management is actively involved in the design process.

MARKETING

The Company's marketing strategy is to communicate a consistent brand specific message each time a consumer comes in contact with them. Advertising is an integral component to the successful marketing of the Company's product offerings and therefore, the Company devotes significant resources to advertising. Since 1972, the Company has maintained its own in-house advertising department, which today focuses primarily on the implementation and management of global marketing and advertising strategies for each of its brands, ensuring consistency of presentation. The Company utilizes the creative development of advertising campaigns from outside agencies. Advertising is developed individually for each of the Company's watch brands as well as Movado Boutique jewelry, tabletop and accessories and is directed primarily to the end consumer rather than to trade customers. In addition, advertising is developed by targeting consumers with particular demographic characteristics appropriate to the image and price range of the brand. Advertisements are placed predominantly in magazines and other print media but are also created for radio and television campaigns, catalogs, outdoor and other promotional materials. Marketing expenses totaled 16.1%, 16.2% and 16.1% of net sales in fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004, respectively.

OPERATING SEGMENTS

The Company conducts its business primarily in two operating segments: Wholesale and Retail. For operating segment data and geographic segment data for the years ended January 31, 2006, 2005 and 2004, see Note 15 to the Consolidated Financial Statements regarding Segment Information.

The Company's wholesale segment includes the design, development, marketing and distribution of high quality watches, in addition to revenue generated from after-sales service activities and shipping. The Retail segment includes the Company's Movado Boutiques and its outlet stores.

The Company divides its business into two major geographic segments: Domestic, which includes the results of the Company's North American, Caribbean and Tommy Hilfiger South American operations, and International, which includes the results of all other Company operations. The Company's international operations are principally conducted in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The Company's international assets are substantially located in Switzerland.

Wholesale

Domestic Wholesale

The Company sells all of its brands in the domestic wholesale market primarily through major jewelry store chains such as Helzberg Diamonds Corp., Sterling, Inc. and Zale Corporation; department stores, such as Macy's, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as independent jewelers. Sales to trade customers in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean are made directly by the Company's domestic sales force of approximately 150 employees. Of these employees, sales representatives are responsible for a defined geographic territory, specialize in a particular brand and sell to and service the independent jewelers within their territory. Their compensation is based on salary plus commission. The sales force also consists of account executives and account representatives who, respectively, sell to and service the chain and department store accounts. The latter typically handle more than one of the Company's brands and are compensated based on salary and incentives. In South America, the Company primarily sells Tommy Hilfiger watches through independent distributors.

International Wholesale

The Company sells Movado, Ebel, Concord, Coach and HUGO BOSS watches internationally through its own international sales force of approximately 100 employees operating from the Company's sales and distribution offices in China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates. In addition, the Company sells Movado, Ebel, Concord, Coach, HUGO BOSS and Tommy Hilfiger watches through a network of independent distributors operating in numerous countries around the world. A majority of the Company's arrangements with its international distributors are long-term, generally require certain minimum purchases and restrict the distributor from selling competitive products.

Retail

The Company operates in two retail markets, the luxury boutique market and the outlet market. Movado Boutiques reinforce the luxury image of the Movado brand and are a primary strategic focus of the Company. The Company operates 27 Movado Boutiques in North America that are located in upscale regional shopping centers and metropolitan areas. Movado Boutiques are merchandised with select models of Movado watches, as well as proprietary Movado-branded jewelry, tabletop and accessories and other product line extensions. The modern store design creates a distinctive environment that showcases these products and provides consumers with the ability to fully experience the complete Movado design philosophy. The Company's 28 outlet stores are multi-branded and serve solely as an effective vehicle to sell discontinued models and factory seconds of all of the Company's watches, jewelry, tabletop and accessory products. Three additional Movado Boutiques and one outlet are scheduled to open in fiscal year 2007.

SEASONALITY

The Company's domestic sales are traditionally greater during the Christmas and holiday season. Consequently, the Company's net sales historically have been higher during the second half of the fiscal year. The second half of each year accounted for 56.9%, 58.7% and 58.6% of the Company's net sales for the fiscal years ended January 31, 2006, 2005 and 2004, respectively. The amount of net sales and operating profit generated during the second half of each fiscal year depends upon the general level of retail sales during the Christmas and holiday season, as well as economic conditions and other factors beyond the Company's control. The Company does not expect any significant change in the seasonality of its domestic business in the foreseeable future. Major selling seasons in certain international markets center on significant local holidays that occur in late winter or early spring.

7

BACKLOG

At March 31, 2006, the Company had unfilled orders of $43.5 million compared to $21.4 million and $20.2 million at March 31, 2005 and 2004, respectively. Unfilled orders include both confirmed orders and orders the Company believes will be confirmed based on the historic experience with the customers. It is customary for many of the Company's customers not to confirm their future orders with a formal purchase order until shortly before their desired delivery.

CUSTOMER SERVICE, WARRANTY AND REPAIR

The Company has developed an approach to managing the retail sales process of its wholesale customers that involves monitoring their sales and inventories by product category and style. The Company also assists in the conception, development and implementation of customers' marketing vehicles. The Company places considerable emphasis on cooperative advertising programs with its major retail customers. The Company's retail sales process has resulted in close relationships with its principal customers, often allowing for influence on the mix, quantity and timing of their purchasing decisions. The Company believes that customers' familiarity with its sales approach has facilitated, and should continue to facilitate, the introduction of new products through its existing distribution network.

The Company permits the return of damaged or defective products. In addition, although the Company has no obligation to do so, it does accept limited amounts of product returns from customers in certain instances.

The Company has service facilities around the world including five Company-owned service facilities and approximately 180 authorized independent service centers worldwide. In order to maintain consistency and quality at its service facilities and authorized independent service centers, the Company conducts training sessions for and distributes technical information and updates to repair personnel. All watches sold by the Company come with limited warranties covering the movement against defects in material and workmanship for periods ranging from two to three years from the date of purchase, with the exception of Tommy Hilfiger watches, for which the warranty period is ten years. In addition, the warranty period is five years for the gold plating for Movado watch cases and bracelets. Products that are returned under warranty to the Company are generally serviced by the Company's employees at its service facilities.

The Company retains adequate levels of component parts to facilitate after-sales service of its watches for an extended period of time after the discontinuance of such watches.

In 2003, the Company introduced Customer Wins, a web-based system providing immediate access for the Company's retail partners and consumers to the information they may want or need about after sales service issues. Customer Wins allows the Company's retailers and end consumers to track their repair status online 24 hours a day. The system permits customers to authorize repairs, track repair status through the entire repair life cycle, view repair information, and obtain service order history. Customer Wins can be accessed online at www.mgiservice.com.

SOURCING, PRODUCTION AND QUALITY

The Company does not own any product manufacturing facilities, with the exception of a small manufacturing facility for proprietary movements for its Ebel brand. The Company employs a flexible manufacturing model that relies primarily on independent manufacturers to meet shifts in marketplace demand and changes in consumer preferences. All product sources must achieve and maintain the Company's high quality standards and specifications. With strong supply chain organizations in Switzerland, China and Hong Kong, the

8

Company maintains control over the quality of its products, wherever they are manufactured. Compliance is monitored with strictly implemented quality control standards, including site quality inspections.

A majority of the Swiss watch movements used in the manufacture of Movado, Ebel, Concord and ESQ watches are purchased from two suppliers. The Company obtains other watch components for all of its brands, including movements, cases, hands, dials, bracelets and straps from a number of other suppliers. The Company does not have long-term supply contract commitments with any of its component parts suppliers. Additionally, the Company manufactures some proprietary movements for its Ebel brand.

Movado, Ebel and Concord watches are generally manufactured in Switzerland by independent third party assemblers with some in-house assembly in Bienne and La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. Movado, Ebel and Concord watches are manufactured using Swiss movements and other components obtained from third party suppliers. Coach, ESQ, Tommy Hilfiger and HUGO BOSS watches are manufactured by independent contractors. Coach and ESQ watches are manufactured using Swiss movements and other components purchased from third party suppliers. Tommy Hilfiger and HUGO BOSS watches are manufactured using movements and other components purchased from third party suppliers.

distribution of timepieces and components. The term of the license is through December 31, 2011, with a four-year renewal period at the option of the Company, provided that certain sales thresholds are met.

On March 27, 2006, the Company entered into an exclusive worldwide license agreement with Lacoste S.A., Sporloisirs, S.A. and Lacoste Alligator, S.A. to design, produce, market and distribute Lacoste watches that will be sold under the LACOSTE(R) name and the distinctive "alligator" logo beginning in the first half of 2007. The agreement continues through December 31, 2014 and renews automatically for successive five year periods unless either party notifies the other of non-renewal at least six months before the end of the initial term or any renewal period.

The Company also owns, and has pending applications for, a number of design patents in the United States and internationally for various watch designs, as well as designs of watch cases, bracelets and jewelry.

The Company actively seeks to protect and enforce its intellectual property rights by working with industry associations, anti-counterfeiting organizations, private investigators and law enforcement authorities, including U.S. Customs and Border Protection and, when necessary, sues infringers of its trademarks and patents. Consequently, the Company is involved from time to time in litigation or other proceedings to determine the enforceability, scope and validity of these rights. With respect to the trademarks MOVADO, EBEL, CONCORD and certain other related trademarks, the Company has received exclusion orders that prohibit the importation of counterfeit goods or goods bearing confusingly similar trademarks into the United States. In accordance with customs regulations, these exclusion orders, however, cannot cover the importation of gray-market Movado, Ebel and Concord watches because the Company is the manufacturer of such watches. All of the Company's exclusion orders are renewable.

COMPETITION

The markets for each of the Company's watch brands are highly competitive. With the exception of the Swatch Group, Ltd., a large Swiss-based competitor, no single company competes with the Company across all of its brands. Certain companies, however, compete with Movado Group, Inc. with respect to one or more of its watch brands. Certain of these companies have, and other companies that may enter the Company's markets in the future may have greater financial, distribution, marketing and advertising resources than the Company. The Company's future success will depend, to a significant degree, upon its continued ability to compete effectively with regard to, among other things, the style, quality, price, advertising, marketing, distribution and availability of supply of the Company's watches and other products.

EMPLOYEES

As of January 31, 2006, the Company had approximately 1,300 full-time employees in its domestic and international operations. No employee of the Company is represented by a labor union or is subject to a collective bargaining agreement. The Company has never experienced a work stoppage due to labor difficulties and believes that its employee relations are good.

Item 1A. Risk Factors

The following risk factors and the forward-looking statements contained in this Form 10-K should be read carefully in connection with evaluating Movado Group, Inc.'s business. These risks and uncertainties could cause actual results and events to differ materially from those anticipated. Additional risks which the Company does not presently consider material, or of which it is not currently aware, may also have an adverse impact on the business. Please also see "Forward-Looking Statements" on page 1.

The Company faces intense competition in the worldwide watch industry.

The watch industry is highly competitive, and the Company competes globally with numerous manufacturers, importers and distributors, some of which are larger and have greater financial, distribution, advertising and marketing resources. The Company's products compete on the basis of price, features, perceived desirability, reliability and perceived attractiveness. The Company also faces increased competition from internet-based retailers. The Company's future results of operations may be adversely affected by these and other competitors.

Maintaining favorable brand recognition is essential to the success of the Company, and failure to do so could materially and adversely affect the Company's results of operations.

Favorable brand recognition is an important factor to the future success of the Company. The Company sells its products under a variety of owned and licensed brands. Factors affecting brand recognition are often outside the Company's control, and the Company's efforts to create or enhance favorable brand recognition, such as advertising campaigns, product design and anticipation of fashion trends, may not have their desired effects. Additionally, the Company relies on its license partners to maintain favorable brand recognition of their respective parent brands, and the Company often has no control over the brand management efforts of its license partners. Finally, although the Company's independent distributors are subject to contractual requirements to protect the Company's brands, it may be difficult to monitor or enforce such requirements, particularly in foreign jurisdictions. Any decline in perceived favorable recognition of the Company's owned or licensed brands could materially and adversely affect future results of operations and profitability.

If the Company is unable to respond to changes in consumer demands and fashion trends in a timely manner, sales and profitability could be adversely affected.

Fashion trends and consumer demands and tastes often shift quickly. The Company attempts to monitor these trends in order to adapt its product offerings to suit customer demand. There is a risk that the Company will not properly perceive changes in trends or tastes, which may result in the failure to adapt the Company's products accordingly. In addition, new model designs are regularly introduced into the market for all brands to keep ahead of evolving fashion trends as well as to initiate new trends of their own. There is risk that the public may

11

not favor these new models or that the models may not be ready for sale until after the trend has passed. If the Company fails to respond to and keep up to date with fashion trends and consumer demands and tastes, its brand image, sales, profitability and results of operations could be materially and adversely affected.

If the Company misjudges the demand for its products, high inventory levels could adversely affect future operating results and profitability.

Consumer demand for the Company's products can affect inventory levels. If consumer demand is lower than expected, inventory levels can rise causing a strain on operating cash flow. If the inventory cannot be sold through the Company's wholesale or retail outlets, additional reserves or write-offs to future earnings could be necessary. Conversely, if consumer demand is higher than expected, insufficient inventory levels could result in unfulfilled customer orders, loss of revenue and an unfavorable impact on customer relationships. Failure to properly judge consumer demand and properly manage inventory could have a material, adverse effect on profitability and liquidity.

An increase in product returns could negatively impact the Company's operating results and profitability.

The Company recognizes revenue as sales when merchandise is shipped and title transfers to the customer. The Company permits the return of damaged or defective products and accepts limited amounts of product returns in certain instances. Accordingly, the Company provides allowances for the estimated amounts of these returns at the time of revenue recognition based on historical experience. While such returns have historically been within management's expectations and the provisions established, future return rates may differ from those experienced in the past. Any significant increase in product damages or defects and the resulting credit returns could have a material adverse effect on the Company's operating results for the period or periods in which such returns materialize.

The Company's business relies on the use of independent parties to manufacture its products. Any loss of an independent manufacturer, or the Company's inability to deliver quality goods in a timely manner, could have an adverse affect on customer relations, brand image, net sales and results of operations.

The Company employs a flexible manufacturing model that relies primarily on independent manufacturers to meet shifts in marketplace demand. All product sources must achieve and maintain the Company's high quality standards and specifications. The inability of a manufacturer to ship orders in a timely manner or to meet the Company's high quality standards and specifications could cause the Company to miss committed delivery dates with customers, which could result in cancellation of the customers' orders. In addition, delays in delivery of satisfactory products could have a material, adverse effect on the Company's profitability if the delays cause the Company to be unable to market certain products during the seasonal periods during which its sales are typically higher. See "Risk Factors - The Company's business is seasonal, with sales traditionally greater during certain holiday seasons, so events and circumstances that adversely affect holiday consumer spending will have a disproportionately adverse effect on the Company's results of operations." A majority of the Swiss watch movements used in the manufacture of Movado, Ebel, Concord and ESQ watches are purchased from two suppliers. Additionally, the Company does not have long-term supply commitments with its manufacturers and thus competes for production facilities with other organizations, some of which are larger and have greater resources.

12

If the Company loses any of its license agreements, there may be significant loss of revenues and a negative effect on business.

Many of the Company's brands are subject to license agreements. License agreements give the Company the right to produce, market and distribute certain products under the brand names of ESQ, Coach, Tommy Hilfiger, HUGO BOSS, Juicy Couture and beginning in 2007, Lacoste. There are certain minimum royalty payments as well as other requirements associated with these agreements. Failure to meet any of these requirements could result in the loss of the license. Additionally, after the term of the license agreement has concluded, the licensor may decide not to renew with the Company. Any loss of one or more of the Company's licenses could result in loss of future revenues which could adversely affect its financial condition.

Changes in the sales mix of the Company's products could impact gross profit margins.

The individual brands that are sold by the Company are sold at a wide range of price points and yield a variety of gross profit margins. Thus, the mix of sales by brand can have an impact on the gross profit margins of the Company. If the Company's sales mix shifts unfavorably toward brands with lower gross profit margins than the Company's historical consolidated gross profit margin or if the mix of business changes significantly in the Movado Boutiques, it could have an adverse affect on the results of operations.

The Company's business is seasonal, with sales traditionally greater during certain holiday seasons, so events and circumstances that adversely affect holiday consumer spending will have a disproportionately adverse effect on the company's results of operations.

The Company's sales are seasonal by nature. The Company's U.S. domestic sales are traditionally greater during the Christmas and holiday season.
Internationally, major selling seasons center on significant local holidays that occur in late winter or early spring. The amount of net sales and operating income generated during these seasons depends upon the general level of retail sales during the Christmas and holiday season, as well as economic conditions and other factors beyond the Company's control. If events or circumstances were to occur that negatively impact consumer spending during such holiday seasons, it could have a material, adverse effect on the Company's sales, profitability and results of operations.

If the economy faces a recessionary period, purchases of the Company products may be adversely affected.

Some of the Company's products fall into higher price categories that are considered discretionary luxury items. Consumer purchases of discretionary luxury items can change due to many economic and global factors. Declining confidence in the U.S. or international economies, rising interest rates and taxation issues could adversely affect the level of available discretionary income for consumers to spend. In addition, events such as war, terrorism, natural disasters or outbreaks or disease could further dampen consumer spending on luxury items. If any of these events should occur, the Company could suffer from losses of future sales.

If the Company is unable to successfully implement its growth strategies or manage its growing business, its future operating results could suffer.

The Company is constantly expanding its business through acquisitions, license agreements, joint ventures and new initiatives such as the growing Movado Boutique business. There is risk involved with each of these. Acquisitions and new license agreements require the Company to ensure that new brands will successfully complement the other brands in its portfolio. The Company assumes the risk that the new brand will not be viewed by the public as favorably as its other brands. In addition, the integration of an acquired company or licensed brand into the Company's existing business can strain the Company's current infrastructure with the

13

additional work required and there can be no assurance that the integration of acquisitions or licensed brands will be successful or that acquisitions or licensed brands will generate sales increases. The Company needs to ensure it has the proper manpower and systems in place to allow for successful assimilation of new businesses. The risk involved in growing the Movado Boutique business is that the Company will not be able to successfully implement its business model. In addition, the costs associated with leasehold improvements to current Boutiques and the costs associated with opening new Boutiques could have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial condition and results of operations. The inability to successfully implement its growth strategies could adversely affect the Company's future financial condition and results of operations.

The loss or infringement of trademarks of the Company could have an adverse effect on future results of operations.

The Company believes that its trademarks are vital to the competitiveness and success of the business and has taken the appropriate actions to establish and protect them. There can be no assurance, however, that such actions will be adequate to prevent imitation of the Company's products or infringement of its trademarks or that others will not challenge the Company's rights in, or its ownership of certain trademarks, or that such trademarks will be successfully defended. In addition, the laws of some foreign countries, including some of which the Company sells its products, may not protect the rights to these trademarks to the same extent as do the laws of the United States, which could make it more difficult to successfully defend such challenges in these areas. The inability to obtain or maintain rights in the Company's trademarks could have an adverse effect on brand image and future results of operations.

Pricing fluctuations of commodities could adversely affect the Company's ability to produce product at favorable prices.

Some of the Company's higher-end watch offerings are made with materials such as diamonds, precious metals and gold. The Company's proprietary jewelry is manufactured with silver, gold and platinum, semi-precious and precious stones, and diamonds. A significant change in the prices of these commodities could adversely affect the Company's business by:

- reducing gross profit margins;

- forcing an increase in suggested retail prices; which could lead to

- decreasing consumer demand; which could lead to

- higher inventory levels.

All of the above could adversely affect the Company's future cash flow and results of operations.

The Company's business is subject to foreign currency exchange rate risk.

The majority of the Company's inventory purchases are denominated in Swiss francs. The Company operates under a hedging program which utilizes forward exchange contracts and purchased foreign currency options to mitigate foreign currency risk. If these hedge instruments are unsuccessful at minimizing the risk or are deemed ineffective, any fluctuation of the Swiss franc exchange rate could impact the future results of operations. Changes in currency exchange rates may also affect relative prices at which the Company and its foreign competitors sell products in the same market. A portion of the Company's net sales are derived from international subsidiaries and are denominated in Canadian dollars, Swiss francs, Euros, Hong Kong dollars, Singapore dollars, Japanese yen and British pounds. Future revenues derived in these currencies could be affected by currency fluctuations.

14

The Grinberg family owns a majority of the voting power of the Company's stock.

Each share of common stock of the Company is entitled to one vote per share while each share of class A common stock of the Company is entitled to ten votes per share. While the members of the Grinberg family do not own a majority of the Company's outstanding common stock, by their significant holdings of class A common stock they control a majority of the voting power represented by all outstanding shares of both classes of stock. Consequently, the Grinberg family is in a position to significantly influence any matters that are brought to a vote of the shareholders including, but not limited to, the election of the board of directors and approving any action requiring the approval of shareholders, including any amendments to the Company's certificate of incorporation, mergers or sales of all or substantially all of the Company's assets. This concentration of ownership also may delay, defer or even prevent a change in control of the Company and make some transactions more difficult or impossible without the support of the Grinberg family. These transactions might include proxy contests, tender offers, mergers or other purchases of common stock that could give stockholders the opportunity to realize a premium over the then-prevailing market price for shares of the Company's common stock.

The stock price of the Company could fluctuate and possibly decline due to changes in revenue, operating results and cash flow.

The revenue, results of operations and cash flow of the Company can be affected by several factors, some of which are not controllable by the Company. These factors may include, but are not limited to, the following:

- the ability to anticipate consumer demands and fashion trends;

- increased competition within the watch industry;

- a downturn in the local or global economy that could affect the purchase of consumer discretionary goods;

- material fluctuations in foreign exchange rates or commodities;

- the ability to prevent the loss of or infringement upon the Company's trademarks;

- the loss of any of the Company's license agreements;

- the financial stability of the Company's customers;

- the success of the Company's growth strategies; and

- disease, natural disasters, acts of terrorism or war or other similar global events.

The factors above, as well as any other factors discussed in section 1A of this Form 10-K, could cause a decline in revenues or increased expenses, both of which could have an adverse effect on the results of operations. If the Company's earnings failed to meet the expectations of the public in any given period, the Company's stock price could fluctuate and possibly decline.

If the Company were to lose its relationship with any of its key customers or distributors or any of such customers or distributors were to experience financial difficulties, there may be a significant loss of revenue and operating results.

The Company's customer base covers a wide range of distribution including national jewelry store chains such as Helzberg Diamonds Corp., Sterling, Inc. and Zale Corporation, department stores such as Macy's, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue, independent regional jewelers, licensed partner retail stores and a network of distributors in many countries throughout the world. The Company does not have long term purchase contracts with its customers, nor does it have a significant backlog of unfilled orders. Customer purchasing decisions

15

could vary with each selling season. A material change in the Company's customers' purchasing decisions could have an adverse effect on its revenue and operating results.

The Company extends credit to its customers based on an evaluation of each customer's financial condition usually without requiring collateral. Should any of the Company's larger customers experience financial difficulties, it could result in the Company's curtailing doing business with them or an increase in its exposure related to its accounts receivable. The inability to collect on these receivables could have an adverse effect on the Company's financial results.

If the Company were to lose key members of management or be unable to attract and retain the talent required for the business, operating results could suffer.

The Company's ability to execute key operating initiatives as well as to deliver product and marketing concepts appealing to target consumers depends largely on the efforts and abilities of key executives and senior management's competencies. The unexpected loss of one or more of these individuals could have an adverse effect on the future business. The Company cannot guarantee that it will be able to attract and retain the talent and skills needed in the future.

If the Company were unable to maintain existing space or to lease new space for Boutiques in prime mall locations or be unable to complete construction on a timely basis, it may result in adversely affecting the Company's ability to achieve profitable results in the Boutique business.

The Company's strategy to create a Movado lifestyle image and build retail presence with product assortments that complement successful wholesale watch distribution is a key element in the Company's future business plans. Movado Boutiques are strategically located in the top malls throughout the United States. If the Company could not maintain and secure locations in the prime malls it could jeopardize the operations of the stores and business plans for the future. Additionally, if the Company could not complete construction in new stores within the planned timeframes, cost overruns and lost revenue could adversely affect the profitability of the Boutique segment.

If the Company could not secure financing and credit with favorable terms, the Company could suffer high borrowing costs which could impact financial results.

The Company has been able to secure financing and credit facilities with very favorable terms due to the Company's financial stability and good relationships with its lending partners. If conditions were to change where the Company was unable to comply with its key covenants in its lending agreements or where relationships were to deteriorate it could increase the borrowing rates and have an adverse effect on financial results.

The Company relies heavily on its activities outside of the United States. Many factors affecting business activities outside the United States could result in an adverse impact on the business.

The Company produces all of its watches and a portion of its proprietary jewelry outside the United States and primarily in Europe and Asia. The Company also generates approximately 21% of its revenue through international sources. Factors that could affect the business activity vary by region and market and generally include without limitation:

- changes in social, political and/or economic conditions that could disrupt the trade activity in the countries where the Company's manufacturers, suppliers and customers are located;

- the imposition of additional duties, taxes and other charges on imports and exports;

16

- changes in foreign laws and regulations;

- the adoption or expansion of trade sanctions; and

- a significant change in currency valuation in specific countries or markets.

The occurrence or consequences of any of these risks could affect the Company's ability to operate in the affected regions. This could have an adverse effect on the Company's financial results.

The Company owns three properties totaling 40,400 square feet located in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland used for manufacturing, storage and public relations. In addition, the Company acquired an architecturally significant building in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 2004 as part of its acquisition of Ebel.

The Company also owns approximately 2,500 square feet of office space in Hanau, Germany, which it previously used for sales, distribution and watch repair functions.

The Company also leases retail space for the operation of 27 Movado Boutiques in the United States, each of which averages 2,200 square feet (with the exception of the Company's Soho Boutique in New York City which is approximately 4,700 square feet and the Company's Boutique in The Mall at Short Hills in New Jersey, which is approximately 3,200 square feet) expiring from June 2006 to September 2016. In addition, the Company leases retail space averaging 1,600 square feet per store with leases expiring from June 2006 to January 2016 for the operation of the Company's 28 outlet stores in the United States.

The Company believes that its existing facilities are suitable and adequate for its current operations.

Item 3. Legal Proceedings

The Company is involved in certain legal proceedings arising in the normal course of its business. The Company believes that none of these proceedings, either individually or in the aggregate, will have a material adverse effect on the Company's operating results, liquidity or its financial position.

PART II

Item 5. Market for Registrant's Common Stock and Related Shareholder Matters

As of March 31, 2006, there were 50 holders of record of Class A Common Stock and, the Company estimates, 6,583 beneficial owners of the Common Stock represented by 392 holders of record. The Common Stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "MOV" and on March 31, 2006, the closing price of the Common Stock was $23.08. The quarterly high and low split-adjusted closing prices for the fiscal years ended January 31, 2006 and 2005 were as follows:

                Fiscal Year Ended   Fiscal Year Ended
                 January 31, 2006   January 31, 2005
                -----------------   -----------------
Quarter Ended      Low     High        Low     High
-------------    ------   ------     ------   ------
April 30         $15.94   $19.58     $12.63   $15.31
July 31          $15.83   $19.38     $14.30   $17.24
October 31       $16.70   $20.00     $13.02   $17.81
January 31       $17.30   $19.29     $17.16   $18.95

In connection with the October 7, 1993 public offering, each share of the then currently existing Class A Common Stock was converted into 10.46 shares of new Class A Common Stock, par value of $.01 per share (the "Class A Common Stock"). Each share of Common Stock is entitled to one vote per share and each share of Class A Common Stock is entitled to 10 votes per share on all matters submitted to a vote of the shareholders. Each holder of Class A Common Stock is entitled to convert, at any time, any and all such shares into the same number of shares of Common Stock. Each share of Class A Common Stock is converted automatically into Common Stock in the event that the beneficial or record ownership of such shares of Class A Common Stock is transferred to any person, except to certain family members or affiliated persons deemed "permitted transferees" pursuant to the Company's Amended Restated Certificate of Incorporation. The Class A Common Stock is not publicly traded and consequently, there is currently no established public trading market for these shares.

During the fiscal year ended January 31, 2005, the Board of Directors approved four $0.04 per share quarterly cash dividends, which reflects the effect of the fiscal 2005 two-for-one stock split. On March 23, 2005, the Board approved an increase in the quarterly cash dividend rate from $0.04 to $0.05 per share. On March 28, 2006, the Board approved an increase in the quarterly cash dividend rate from $0.05 to $0.06 per share. The declaration and payment of future dividends, if any, will be at the sole discretion of the Board of Directors and will depend upon the Company's profitability, financial condition, capital and surplus requirements, future prospects, terms of indebtedness and other factors deemed relevant by the Board of Directors. See Notes 5 and 6 to the Consolidated Financial Statements regarding contractual restrictions on the Company's ability to pay dividends.

Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operation

GENERAL

Wholesale Sales. The primary factors that influence annual sales are general economic conditions in the Company's domestic and international markets, new product introductions, the level and effectiveness of advertising and marketing expenditures and product pricing decisions.

Approximately 21% of the Company's total sales are from international markets and therefore reported sales made in those markets are affected by foreign exchange rates. The Company's international sales are billed in local currencies (predominantly Euros and Swiss francs) and translated to U.S. dollars at average exchange rates for financial reporting purposes. With the acquisition of Ebel in March of 2004 and the introduction of HUGO BOSS watches, the Company expects that a higher percentage of its total sales will be derived from international markets in the future.

The Company's business is seasonal. There are two major selling seasons in the Company's markets: the spring season, which includes school graduations and several holidays and, most importantly, the Christmas and holiday season. Major selling seasons in certain international markets center on significant local holidays that occur in late winter or early spring. The Company's net sales historically have been higher during the second half of the fiscal year. The second half of the fiscal year ended January 31, 2006 accounted for 56.9% of the Company's net sales.

Retail Sales. The Company's retail operations consist of 27 Movado Boutiques and 28 outlet stores located throughout the United States. The Company does not have any retail operations outside of the United States.

The significant factors that influence annual sales volumes in the Company's retail operations are similar to those that influence domestic wholesale sales. In addition, many of the Company's outlet stores are located near vacation destinations and, therefore, the seasonality of these stores is driven by the peak tourist seasons associated with these locations.

Gross Margins. The Company's overall gross margins are primarily affected by four major factors: brand and product sales mix, product pricing strategy, manufacturing costs and the U.S. dollar/Swiss franc exchange rate. Gross margins for the Company may not be comparable to those of other companies, since some companies include all the costs related to its distribution network in cost of sales whereas the Company does not include the costs associated with its U.S. warehousing and distribution facility nor the occupancy costs for the retail segment in the cost of sales line item.

Gross margins vary among the brands included in the Company's portfolio and also among watch models within each brand. Watches in the luxury and premium price point categories generally earn lower gross margin percentages than moderate price models. Gross margins in the Company's outlet business are lower than those of the wholesale business since the outlets primarily sell seconds and discontinued models that generally command lower selling prices. Gross margins in the Movado Boutiques are affected by the mix of product sold. The margins from the sale of watches are greater than those from the sale of jewelry and accessories. Gross margins from the sale of watches in the Movado Boutiques also exceed those of the wholesale business since the Company earns margins from manufacture to point of sale to the consumer.

All of the Company's brands compete with a number of other brands on the basis of not only styling but also wholesale and retail price. The Company's ability to improve margins through price increases is therefore, to some extent, constrained by competitors' actions.

21

Costs of sales of the Company's products consist primarily of component costs, internal assembly costs and unit overhead costs associated with the Company's supply chain operations in Switzerland and Asia. The Company's supply chain operations consist of logistics management of assembly operations and product sourcing in Switzerland and Asia and assembly in Switzerland. Through productivity improvement efforts, the Company has controlled the level of overhead costs and maintained flexibility in its cost structure by outsourcing a significant portion of its component and assembly requirements and expects to extend this strategy over the near term.

Since a substantial amount of the Company's product costs are incurred in Swiss francs, fluctuations in the U.S. dollar/Swiss franc exchange rate can impact the Company's cost of goods sold and, therefore, its gross margins. The Company hedges its Swiss franc purchases using a combination of forward contracts, purchased currency options and spot purchases. The Company's hedging program had the effect of minimizing the exchange rate impact on product costs and gross margins.

Selling, General and Administrative ("SG&A") Expenses. The Company's SG&A expenses consist primarily of marketing, selling, distribution and general and administrative expenses. Annual marketing expenditures are based principally on overall strategic considerations relative to maintaining or increasing market share in markets that management considers to be crucial to the Company's continued success as well as on general economic conditions in the various markets around the world in which the Company sells its products.

Selling expenses consist primarily of salaries, sales commissions, sales force travel and related expenses, expenses associated with Baselworld, the annual watch and jewelry trade show and other industry trade shows and operating costs incurred in connection with the Company's retail business. Sales commissions vary with overall sales levels. Retail selling expenses consist primarily of payroll related and store occupancy costs.

Distribution expenses consist primarily of salaries of distribution staff, rental and other occupancy costs, security, depreciation and amortization of furniture and leasehold improvements and shipping supplies.

General and administrative expenses consist primarily of salaries and other employee compensation, employee benefit plan costs, office rent, management information systems costs, professional fees, bad debts, depreciation and amortization of furniture and leasehold improvements, patent and trademark expenses and various other general corporate expenses.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES

The Company's consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and those significant policies are more fully described in Note 1 to the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements. The preparation of these financial statements and the application of certain critical accounting policies require management to make judgments based on estimates and assumptions that affect the information reported. On an on-going basis, management evaluates its estimates and judgments, including those related to sales discounts and markdowns, product returns, bad debt, inventories, income taxes, warranty obligations, and contingencies and litigation. Management bases its estimates and judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources on historical experience, contractual commitments and on various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. Management believes the following are the critical accounting policies requiring significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of its consolidated financial statements.

22

Revenue Recognition

In the wholesale segment, the Company recognizes its revenues upon transfer of title and risk of loss in accordance with its FOB shipping point terms of sale and after the sales price is fixed and determinable and collectibility is reasonably assured. In the retail segment, transfer of title and risk of loss occurs at the time of register receipt. The Company records estimates for sales returns, volume-based programs and sales and cash discount allowances as a reduction of revenue in the same period that the sales are recorded. These estimates are based upon historical analysis, customer agreements and/or currently known factors that arise in the normal course of business.

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

Accounts receivable are reduced by an allowance for amounts that may be uncollectible in the future. Estimates are used in determining the allowance for doubtful accounts and are based on an analysis of the aging of accounts receivable, assessments of collectibility based on historic trends, the financial condition of the Company's customers and an evaluation of economic conditions. While the actual bad debt losses have historically been within the Company's expectations and the allowances established, there can be no guarantee that the Company will continue to experience the same bad debt loss rates. As of January 31, 2006, the Company knew of no situations with any of the Company's major customers which would indicate the customer's inability to make their required payments.

Inventories

The Company values its inventory at the lower of cost or market. The Company's domestic inventory is valued using the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method. The cost of finished goods and component inventories, held by overseas subsidiaries, are determined using average cost. The Company's management regularly reviews its sales to customers and customers' sell through at retail to evaluate the adequacy of inventory reserves. Inventory with less than acceptable turn rates is classified as discontinued and, together with the related component parts which can be assembled into saleable finished goods, is sold through the Company's outlet stores. When management determines that finished product is unsaleable in the Company's outlet stores or that it is impractical to build the remaining components into watches for sale in the outlets, a reserve is established for the cost of those products and components. These estimates could vary significantly, either favorably or unfavorably, from actual requirements depending on future economic conditions, customer inventory levels or competitive conditions which may differ from the Company's expectations.

Long-Lived Assets

The Company periodically reviews the estimated useful lives of its depreciable assets based on factors including historical experience, the expected beneficial service period of the asset, the quality and durability of the asset and the Company's maintenance policy including periodic upgrades. Changes in useful lives are made on a prospective basis unless factors indicate the carrying amounts of the assets may not be recoverable and an impairment write-down is necessary.

The Company performs an impairment review, at a minimum, on an annual basis. However, the Company will review its long-lived assets for impairment once events or changes in circumstances indicate, in management's judgment, that the carrying value of such assets may not be recoverable in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets" ("SFAS No. 144"). When such a determination has been made, management compares the carrying value of the assets with their estimated future undiscounted cash flows. If it is determined that an impairment loss has

23

occurred, the loss is recognized during that period. The impairment loss is calculated as the difference between asset carrying values and the fair value of the long-lived assets.

During fiscal 2006, the Company performed the review which resulted in no impairment charge. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005, the Company determined that the carrying value of its long-lived assets in the Movado Boutique located in the Soho section of New York City, might not be recoverable. The impairment review was performed pursuant to SFAS No. 144 because of an economic downturn affecting the Soho Boutique operations and revenue forecasts. As a result, the Company recorded a non-cash pretax impairment charge of $2.0 million consisting of property, plant and equipment of $0.8 million and other assets of $1.2 million. The entire impairment charge is included in the selling, general and administrative expenses in the fiscal 2005 Consolidated Statements of Income. The Company will continue to operate this boutique. There were no impairment losses related to long-lived assets in fiscal 2004.

Warranties

All watches sold by the Company come with limited warranties covering the movement against defects in material and workmanship for periods ranging from two to three years from the date of purchase, with the exception of Tommy Hilfiger watches, for which the warranty period is ten years. In addition, the warranty period is five years for the gold plating for Movado watch cases and bracelets. The Company records an estimate for future warranty costs based on historical repair costs. Warranty costs have historically been within the Company's expectations and the provisions established. If such costs were to substantially exceed estimates, this could have an adverse effect on the Company's operating results.

Income Taxes

The Company follows Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 109, "Accounting for Income Taxes" ("SFAS No. 109"). Under the asset and liability method of SFAS No. 109, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax laws and tax rates, in each jurisdiction the Company operates, and applied to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities due to a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. In addition, the amounts of any future tax benefits are reduced by a valuation allowance to the extent such benefits are not expected to be realized on a more-likely-than-not basis. The Company calculates estimated income taxes in each of the jurisdictions in which it operates. This process involves estimating actual current tax expense along with assessing temporary differences resulting from differing treatment of items for both book and tax purposes.

Fiscal 2006 Compared to Fiscal 2005

Net Sales

Net sales in fiscal 2006 were $470.9 million, or 12.4% above fiscal 2005 sales of $419.0 million. For the year, sales increases were recorded in all business segments and all brands, except the Concord brand.

Domestic Wholesale Net Sales

The domestic wholesale business increased by 11.9%, or $30.5 million, to $286.8 million. A sales increase of $12.1 million was recorded in the Movado brand. This sales growth was achieved through the introduction of new styling and variations within existing watch families, including the addition of diamonds to offer fresh elements appealing to the Movado customer coupled with strong iconic marketing and advertising support. The

25

ESQ brand recorded a sales increase of $8.1 million due to the successful repositioning of the brand in the entry level Swiss watch category by the introduction of new product with integrated marketing support and a new advertising campaign which led to strong retailer demand. The Ebel brand recorded a sales increase of $6.0 million. This strong performance reflects the cumulative impact of the Company's efforts over the past two years to re-establish the brand with product and marketing support to bring the brand image back to its roots and values. Concord sales were below prior year by $1.8 million, primarily due to reduced retailer demand and sell through to the ultimate consumer.

International Wholesale Net Sales

The international wholesale business increased by 11.1%, or $9.9 million, to $98.6 million. Ebel and Tommy Hilfiger recorded increases of $9.1 million and $4.8 million, respectively. The increases in Ebel were achieved in virtually all international markets. This was primarily the result of stronger retailer demand for the new product introductions and the Company's marketing and advertising support. Tommy Hilfiger sales increased primarily in Europe due to market expansions and increased consumer recognition and demand. Concord sales were below prior year by $3.9 million due to sales decreases recorded in Asia and the Middle East.

Retail Net Sales

Sales in the Company's retail segment increased by $11.6 million, or 15.7%, to $85.6 million. Comparable store sales increases of 8.5% were achieved in the Movado Boutiques. In addition, non-comparable store sales grew by $6.0 million over the prior year. Comparable store sales in the Company outlet stores increased by 7.3%. At January 31, 2006, the Company operated 27 Movado Boutiques and 28 outlet stores as compared to 24 Movado Boutiques and 27 outlet stores at January 31, 2005.

The Company considers comparative store sales to be sales of stores that were open as of February 1st of the prior fiscal year through January 31st of the current fiscal year. The sales from stores that have been relocated, renovated or refurbished are included in the calculation of comparable store sales. The method of calculating comparative store sales varies across the retail industry. As a result, the calculation of comparative store sales may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other companies.

Gross Margin

Gross margin for the year was $286.3 million, an increase of $36.2 million over prior year gross margin of $250.1 million. The increase of $36.2 million was primarily due to increased sales of $52.0 million as well as an overall increase in the gross margin as a percent of sales from 59.7% to 60.8%. The higher gross margin percentage was attributed to margin improvements in most of the Company's brands, particularly Ebel. This improvement was due to Ebel being fully-integrated into the Company's existing supply chain. In addition, the Movado Boutiques margin rate improved due to both the product mix and generally higher margins in jewelry.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

SG&A expenses of $238.3 million increased by $23.2 million, or 10.8%, from $215.1 million in fiscal 2005. The primary reasons for the increase was $7.1 million of increased spending in support of the retail expansion, increased marketing spending of $7.3 million to support the new and existing brands and a $4.9 million increase in payroll and related infrastructure costs in support of brand growth and expansion. Fiscal 2005 amounts include a non-cash impairment charge of $2.0 million related to the Soho Boutique.

Wholesale Operating Profit

Operating profit in the wholesale segment increased by $9.2 million to $42.3 million. The increase is the net result of higher gross margin of $27.3 million, partially offset by an increase in SG&A expenses of $18.1 million. The higher gross margin of $27.3 million was primarily the result of an increase in net sales of $40.4 million. The increase in the SG&A expenses of $18.1 million is primarily due to increased marketing spending of $7.3 million to support the brand growth initiatives and a $4.9 million increase in payroll and related infrastructure costs in support of the brand growth and expansion.

Retail Operating Profit

Operating profit in the retail segment increased by $3.7 million to $5.7 million at January 31, 2006. The increase in the operating profit was the net result of higher gross profit of $8.8 million partially offset by higher SG&A expenses of $5.1 million. The increased gross profit was primarily attributed to the increase in net sales of $11.6 million as well as higher gross margins in the Movado Boutiques due to both product mix and generally higher margins in jewelry. The higher SG&A expenses were primarily due to the costs associated with the retail expansion. This amount included higher payroll related expense of $3.2 million, increased occupancy costs of $1.6 million and increased depreciation expense of $0.8 million. Fiscal 2005 amounts include a non-cash impairment charge of $2.0 million for the Soho Boutique.

Other Income

The Company recorded other income for the year ended January 31, 2006 of $1.0 million. The Company recorded a pre-tax gain of $2.6 million on the sale of a building acquired on March 1, 2004 in connection with the acquisition of Ebel. The building was classified as an asset held for sale in other current assets. Additionally, the Company recorded a pre-tax loss of $1.6 million representing the impact of the discontinuation of foreign currency cash flow hedges because it was not probable that the forecasted transactions would occur by the end of the originally specified time period.

The Company recognized other income for the year ended January 31, 2005 from a litigation settlement in the amount of $1.4 million.

Interest Expense

Interest expense for fiscal 2006 was $4.1 million, reflecting a 19.8% increase over fiscal 2005 interest of $3.4 million. The increase was primarily the result of higher average borrowings, which were $78.7 million or 35.7% above the prior year. The increased borrowings were incurred in Switzerland in order to repatriate foreign earnings under the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 as well as to fund the Company's working capital needs. Additionally, higher borrowing rates for the year contributed to the increase in expense.

For borrowings data for the years ended January 31, 2006 and 2005, see Notes 5 and 6 to the Consolidated Financial Statements regarding Bank Credit Arrangements and Lines of Credit and Long-Term Debt. For further information on the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004, see Note 9 to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

Income Taxes

The Company's income tax provision amounted to $18.3 million and $6.8 million in fiscal 2006 and 2005 respectively. This represents an effective tax rate of 40.8% in fiscal 2006 compared to 20.5% for fiscal 2005. The higher effective tax rate for 2006 is primarily due to the fourth quarter 2006 tax charge of $7.5 million

27

associated with repatriated foreign earnings under the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004. For additional information related to income taxes for the years ended January 31, 2006 and 2005, see Note 9 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. In the prior year, the lower effective tax rate was the result of a retroactive favorable Swiss tax ruling and a favorable U.S. tax accrual adjustment.

Fiscal 2005 Compared to Fiscal 2004

Net Sales

Net sales in fiscal 2005 were $419.0 million, or 26.9% above fiscal 2004 sales of $330.2 million. For the year, sales increases were recorded in all brands and business segments.

Domestic Wholesale Net Sales

The domestic wholesale business increased by 14.0%, or $31.5 million, to $256.3 million, including Ebel sales of $15.7 million. A sales increase of $7.2 million was recorded in the Movado brand. The increase is attributed to new product introductions at more affordable price points as well as increased sell through at certain retailers in key customer chain stores. The Coach brand increased by $2.3 million as a result of the introduction of fashion products in tandem with new product offerings by Coach, Inc. The Tommy Hilfiger watch business increased by $4.4 million. This reflects the expansion into new doors in the North American marketplace as well as the continued strength of the Tommy Hilfiger watch business.

International Wholesale Net Sales

The international wholesale business was $88.7 million and was above prior year by $44.2 million or 99.4%, including Ebel sales of $28.5 million. An increase of $6.3 million was recorded in Tommy Hilfiger as a result of international market expansion. Coach, Concord and Movado increased by $2.0 million, $5.0 million and $2.3 million, respectively, due to growth primarily recorded in Asia.

Retail Net Sales

Sales in the Company's retail segment increased by $13.1 million, or 21.5%, to $73.9 million. Comparable store sales increases of 11.2% were achieved in the Movado Boutiques. In addition, non-comparable sales grew by $10.4 million over the prior year. Comparable store sales in the Company outlet stores were flat year over year. At January 31, 2005, the Company operated 24 Movado Boutiques and 27 outlet stores as compared to 17 Movado Boutiques and 26 outlet stores at January 31, 2004.

Gross Margin

Gross margin for the year was $250.1 million, an increase of $49.8 million over prior year gross margin of $200.3 million. The increase of $49.8 million was due to increased sales of $88.8 million. As a percent of sales, gross margin was 59.7% versus 60.7% in the prior year. The lower gross margin percentage was primarily attributed to a sales mix change due to the addition of Ebel and the increased sales of Tommy Hilfiger, where the gross margins are lower than the Company's historical average.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

SG&A expenses of $215.1 million increased by $49.5 million, or 29.9%, from $165.5 million in fiscal 2004. The primary reasons for the increases were the addition of Ebel, which recorded $28.3 million of incremental expenses, $6.6 million of increased spending in support of the Movado Boutique expansion, higher payroll and

28

related costs of $6.4 million, additional marketing programs of $1.3 million and other corporate initiatives of $2.2 million, which included higher legal costs, costs incurred in connection with Sarbanes-Oxley implementation and costs associated with the acquisition of Ebel which could not be capitalized. In addition, in accordance with SFAS No. 144, the Company recorded a non-cash impairment charge of $2.0 million which is included in SG&A.

Wholesale Operating Profit

Operating profit in the wholesale segment increased by $1.9 million to $33.0 million. The effect of the addition of Ebel was an operating loss for the year of $3.8 million. Excluding the loss of Ebel, operating profit in the wholesale segment was $36.8 million or an increase over prior year of $5.7 million. The increase excluding the effect of Ebel is the net result of higher gross margin of $16.8 million, partially offset by the increase in SG&A expenses of $11.1 million.

The higher gross margin of $16.8 million was the result of an increase in net sales of $30.3 million. The increase in the SG&A expenses of $11.1 million is primarily due to $1.7 million in the wholesale segment as a result of the translation impact of the weak U.S. dollar, an increase of $1.3 million in marketing spending, which includes support for the Movado expansion in China and support for the international market expansion of Tommy Hilfiger, higher payroll and related costs of $6.4 million and $2.2 million in other corporate initiatives including higher legal costs, costs incurred in connection with Sarbanes-Oxley implementation and costs associated with the acquisition of Ebel which could not be capitalized.

Retail Operating Profit

Operating profit in the retail segment decreased by $1.6 million. The decrease is the net result of higher gross margin of $8.5 million partially offset by increased SG&A expenses of $10.1 million.

The retail segment higher gross margin was due to a net sales increase of $13.1 million. This was primarily due to comparable store sales increases in the Movado Boutiques of 11.2% and the opening of seven new Movado Boutiques and one new outlet store. The comparable store sales in the outlet stores were flat year over year.

The increase in SG&A expenses of $10.1 million was primarily attributed to the costs associated with the opening of the seven new Movado Boutiques and one new outlet store of $6.6 million and the effect of the impairment charge related to the Soho Boutique of $2.0 million.

Other Income

The Company recognized income for the year ended January 31, 2005 from a litigation settlement in the net amount of $1.4 million. This consisted of a gross settlement of $1.9 million partially offset by direct costs related to the litigation of $0.5 million. After accounting for fees and taxes associated with the settlement, net income increased by $0.8 million, or $0.03 per diluted share.

Interest Expense

Interest expense for fiscal 2005 was $3.4 million, reflecting a 12.7% increase over fiscal 2004 interest of $3.0 million. The increase was primarily the result of higher average borrowings, which were $58.0 million or 14.9% above the prior year. The increased borrowings were initiated to take advantage of low long-term rates and to improve the Company's capital structure.

29

Income Taxes

The Company's income tax provision amounted to $6.8 million and $8.9 million in fiscal 2005 and 2004 respectively. This represents an effective tax rate of 20.5% in fiscal 2005 compared to 28.0% for fiscal 2004. The lower effective tax rate for fiscal 2005 is primarily due to adjustments in the fourth quarter relating to refunds from a retroactive Swiss tax ruling, a favorable U.S. tax accrual adjustment and the recording of the tax benefit from an asset impairment in the U.S.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At January 31, 2006, the Company had $123.6 million of cash and cash equivalents as compared to $63.8 million in the comparable prior year period. The $59.8 million increase is primarily due to the borrowing of 83.0 million Swiss francs, with a dollar equivalent of $65.0 million, to repatriate foreign earnings under the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 and partially offset by cash used for capital expenditures of $16.4 million, primarily to support the build out of five new retail stores, renovation and expansion of existing stores, the expansion of office space in the corporate headquarters in Paramus, New Jersey and further automation of the distribution center in Moonachie, New Jersey. In addition, cash provided by operating activities was $28.4 million.

Cash generated by operating activities continues to be the Company's primary source to fund its growth initiatives and to pay dividends. In fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004, the Company generated cash from operations of $28.4 million, $30.2 million and $51.6 million, respectively.

Accounts receivable at January 31, 2006 were $109.9 million as compared to $104.7 million in the comparable prior year period. The increase of $5.2 million or 4.9% was below the sales growth of 12.4%. This improvement reflects the results of higher cash collections during the year as well as higher sales in the retail segment and for the Company's licensed brands where shorter payment terms are the norm. The accounts receivable days outstanding were 70 days and 74 days for the fiscal years ended January 31, 2006 and 2005, respectively.

Inventories at January 31, 2006 were $198.6 million as compared to $185.6 million in the comparable prior year period. Inventory increased by $13.0 million primarily due to the increase in Concord inventory of $3.1 million as a result of the decline in sales and increased Ebel inventory of $8.0 million due to new product launches. Additionally, inventory held for retail increased by $3.4 million primarily due to the retail expansion and an expanded jewelry product offering in the Boutiques. These increases include a favorable impact of $5.3 million due to the stronger U.S. dollar in translating the inventory.

Cash used in investing activities amounted to $13.2 million, $59.5 million and $11.5 million in fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004, respectively. Cash used in investing activities during fiscal 2006 was for capital expenditures of $16.4 million primarily to support the build out of five new retail stores, renovation and expansion of existing stores, the expansion of office space in the corporate headquarters in Paramus, New Jersey and further automation of the distribution center in Moonachie, New Jersey. The cash used in investing activities was offset by $4.0 million received as proceeds from the sale of a building acquired on March 1, 2004 in connection with the acquisition of Ebel. The cash used in investing activities during fiscal 2005 was primarily to fund the acquisition of Ebel and capital expenditures related to the build out of the new Movado Boutiques opened during the period.

Cash provided by / (used) in financing activities amounted to $62.1 million, $3.6 million and ($1.9) million in fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004, respectively. Cash provided by financing activities during fiscal 2006 was primarily due to the increase in borrowings of 83.0 million Swiss francs, with a dollar equivalent of $65.0

30

million, to repatriate foreign earnings under the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004. Cash provided by financing activities during fiscal 2005 was primarily the result of a net increase in long-term debt of $10.0 million partially offset by the payment of a $5.2 million mortgage assumed as part of the Ebel acquisition.

During fiscal 1999, the Company issued $25.0 million of Series A Senior Notes under a Note Purchase and Private Shelf Agreement dated November 30, 1998. These notes bear interest of 6.90% per annum, mature on October 30, 2010 and are subject to annual repayments of $5.0 million commencing October 31, 2006. These notes contain financial covenants including an interest coverage ratio, maintenance of consolidated net worth and certain non-financial covenants that restrict the Company's activities regarding investments and acquisitions, mergers, certain transactions with affiliates, creation of liens, asset transfers, payment of dividends and limitation of the amount of debt outstanding.

These notes contain financial covenants including an interest coverage ratio, maintenance of consolidated net worth and certain non-financial covenants that restrict the Company's activities regarding investments and acquisitions, mergers, certain transactions with affiliates, creation of liens, asset transfers, payment of dividends and limitation of the amount of debt outstanding. As of January 31, 2006, the Company was in compliance with all financial and non-financial covenants and $20.0 million of these notes were issued and outstanding.

On June 30, 2005, the Company renewed its promissory note for a $5.0 million unsecured working capital line with Bank of New York, originally dated June 27, 2000. The line expires on July 31, 2006. The Company had no outstanding borrowings under the line as of January 31, 2006 and 2005.

31

pay to Chase $37.0 million, or such lesser amount as may then be the unpaid balance of each loan made or letter of credit issued by Chase to the Company thereunder, upon the maturity date of July 31, 2006; provided that during the period between January 31, 2006 and the maturity date, the maximum principal amount of all loans made by Chase to the Company, and outstanding under the promissory note, shall not exceed $2.0 million.

As of January 31, 2006, the Company was in compliance with all financial and non-financial covenants and had 83.0 million Swiss francs, with a dollar equivalent of $65.0 million, outstanding under this revolving credit facility.

On December 15, 2005, the Company and its Swiss subsidiaries, MGI Luxury Group S.A. and Movado Watch Company SA, entered into a credit agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., JPMorgan Securities, Inc., Bank of America, N.A., The Bank of New York and Citibank, N.A.

The US Credit Agreement will mature on December 15, 2010. The obligations of MGI Luxury Group S.A. and Movado Watch Company SA are guaranteed by the Company under a Parent Guarantee, dated as of December 15, 2005, in favor of the lenders. The obligations of the Company are guaranteed by certain domestic subsidiaries of the Company under subsidiary guarantees, in favor of the lenders. The credit agreement contains financial covenants including an interest coverage ratio, average debt coverage ratio, limitations on capital expenditures and certain non-financial covenants that restrict the Company's activities regarding investments and acquisitions, mergers, certain transactions with affiliates, creation of liens, asset transfers, payment of dividends and limitation of the amount of debt outstanding. Until the date immediately preceding the first day of the calendar month following the date of delivery of the first annual or quarterly financial statements after December 15, 2005, the credit facility bears interest, at Borrower's option, at a rate equal to the Adjusted LIBOR (as defined in the US Credit Agreement) plus .50% per annum, or

32

the Alternate Base Rate (as defined in the US Credit Agreement), after which it will bear interest, at Borrower's option, at a rate equal to the Adjusted LIBOR plus a margin ranging from .50% per annum to .875% per annum (depending upon a leverage ratio), or the Alternate Base Rate. As of January 31, 2006, the Company was in compliance with all financial and non-financial covenants and there were no outstanding borrowings against this line.

A Swiss subsidiary of the Company maintains unsecured lines of credit with an unspecified length of time with a Swiss bank. Available credit under these lines totaled 8.0 million Swiss francs, with dollar equivalents of $6.3 million and $6.7 million at January 31, 2006 and 2005. As of January 31, 2006, the Swiss bank has guaranteed the Company's Swiss subsidiary's obligations to certain Swiss third parties in the amount of $3.3 million in various foreign currencies.

Cash dividends were $5.1 million, $4.0 million and $2.5 million in fiscal years 2006, 2005 and 2004, respectively.

At January 31, 2006, the Company had working capital of $369.2 million as compared to $303.2 million in the prior year. The Company defines working capital as the difference between current assets and current liabilities. The Company expects that annual capital expenditures in the near term will be higher by approximately $1.5 million when compared to fiscal 2006 levels. The increase in capital expenditures will be due to the remodeling of existing stores, increased spending in support of the Movado Boutiques expansion and higher costs related to improving the Company's information technology infrastructure. Management believes that the cash on hand in addition to the expected cash flow from operations and the Company's short-term borrowing capacity will be sufficient to meet its working capital needs for at least the next 12 months.

(1) The Company has long-term debt obligations and related interest payments of $54.5 million related to Series A-2004 Senior Notes and Series A Senior Notes further discussed in "Liquidity and Capital Resources". Additionally, the Company has long-term debt obligations and related interest payments of $69.7 million related to the Swiss revolving credit facility entered into in fiscal 2006.

(2) Includes store operating leases, which generally provide for payment of direct operating costs in addition to rent. These obligation amounts include future minimum lease payments and exclude direct operating costs.

(3) The Company had outstanding purchase obligations with suppliers at the end of fiscal 2006 for raw materials, finished watches and packaging in the normal course of business. These purchase obligation amounts do not represent total anticipated purchases but represent only amounts to be paid for items required to be purchased under agreements that are enforceable, legally binding and specify minimum quantity, price and term.

(4) Other long-term obligations consist of minimum obligations related to the Company's license agreements. The Company manufactures, distributes, advertises and sells watches pursuant to its exclusive license agreements with unaffiliated licensors. Royalty amounts are generally based on a stipulated percentage of revenues, although certain of these agreements contain provisions

33

for the payment of minimum annual royalty amounts. The license agreements have various terms with additional renewal options, provided that minimum sales levels are achieved. Additionally, the license agreements require the Company to pay certain advertising expenses based on a stipulated percentage of revenues, although certain of these agreements contain provisions for the payment of minimum annual advertising amounts.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

The Company does not have off-balance sheet financing or unconsolidated special-purpose entities.

RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

In November 2004, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 151, "Inventory Costs", an amendment of ARB No. 43, Chapter 4 ("SFAS No. 151"). The amendments made by SFAS No. 151 clarify that abnormal amounts of idle facility expense, freight, handling costs, and wasted materials (spoilage) should be recognized as current-period charges by requiring the allocation of fixed production overheads to inventory based on the normal capacity of the production facilities. The guidance is effective for inventory costs incurred during fiscal years beginning after June 15, 2005, and is not expected to have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In December 2004, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123(R), "Share-Based Payment", which is a revision of FASB Statement No. 123, "Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation" ("SFAS No. 123(R)"). SFAS No. 123(R) supersedes APB Opinion No. 25, "Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees", and amends FASB Statement No. 95, "Statement of Cash Flows". Generally, the approach in SFAS No. 123(R) is similar to the approach described in SFAS No. 123. SFAS No. 123(R) requires all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, to be recognized in the income statement based on their fair values. Pro forma disclosure will no longer be an alternative. Public entities are required to apply SFAS No. 123(R) as of the first annual reporting period that begins after June 15, 2005.

The Company continues to use the intrinsic value based method of accounting for share-based payments. The Company uses the Black-Scholes valuation model to estimate the value of stock options granted to employees. SFAS No. 123(R) requires the benefits of tax deductions in excess of recognized compensation cost to be reported as a financing cash flow, rather than as an operating cash flow as required under current literature. This requirement will reduce net operating cash flows and increase net financing cash flows in periods after adoption. The Company will be adopting SFAS No. 123(R) in the first quarter of fiscal 2007 using the modified prospective application transition method. For outstanding unvested options granted as of January 31, 2006, the adoption is expected to have an impact of approximately $1.0 million, net of tax, on the Company's consolidated results of operations for fiscal year ending January 31, 2007.

In December 2004, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 153, "Exchanges of Nonmonetary Assets--An Amendment of APB Opinion No. 29, Accounting for Nonmonetary Transactions" ("SFAS No. 153"). SFAS No. 153 eliminates the exception from fair value measurement for nonmonetary exchanges of similar productive assets in paragraph 21(b) of APB Opinion No. 29, "Accounting for Nonmonetary Transactions", and replaces it with an exception for exchanges that do not have commercial substance. SFAS No. 153 specifies that a nonmonetary exchange has commercial substance if the future cash flows of the entity are expected to change significantly as a result of the exchange. SFAS No. 153 is effective for the fiscal periods beginning after June 15, 2005. The adoption of SFAS No. 153 is not expected to have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

34

In March 2005, the FASB issued Interpretation No. 47, "Accounting for Conditional Asset Retirement Obligations" ("FIN 47"). FIN 47 clarifies that the term "conditional asset retirement obligation" as used in SFAS No. 143, "Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations," refers to a legal obligation to perform an asset retirement activity in which the timing and (or) method of settlement are conditional on a future event that may or may not be within the control of the entity. FIN 47 is effective no later than the end of fiscal years ending after December 15, 2005. The adoption of FIN 47 did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In June 2005, the Emerging Issues Task Force ("EITF") reached consensus on EITF 05-6, "Determining the Amortization Period for Leasehold Improvements". Under EITF 05-6, leasehold improvements placed in service significantly after and not contemplated at or near the beginning of the lease term, should be amortized over the lesser of the useful life of the assets or a term that includes renewals that are reasonably assured at the date the leasehold improvements are purchased. EITF 05-6 is effective for periods beginning after June 29, 2005. The adoption of EITF 05-6 did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosure about Market Risk

Foreign Currency Exchange Rate Risk

The Company's primary market risk exposure relates to foreign currency exchange risk (see Note 7 to the Consolidated Financial Statements). The majority of the Company's purchases are denominated in Swiss francs. The Company reduces its exposure to the Swiss franc exchange rate risk through a hedging program. Under the hedging program, the Company manages most of its foreign currency exposures on a consolidated basis, which allows it to net certain exposures and take advantage of natural offsets. The Company uses various derivative financial instruments to further reduce the net exposures to currency fluctuations, predominately forward and option contracts. These derivatives either (a) are used to hedge the Company's Swiss franc liabilities and are recorded at fair value with the changes in fair value reflected in earnings or (b) are documented as SFAS No. 133 cash flow hedges with the gains and losses on this latter hedging activity first reflected in other comprehensive income, and then later classified into earnings. In both cases, the earnings impact is partially offset by the effects of currency movements on the underlying hedged transactions. If the Company did not engage in a hedging program, any change in the Swiss franc to local currency would have an equal effect on the Company's cost of sales. In addition, the Company hedges its Swiss franc payable exposure with forward contracts. As of January 31, 2006, the Company's entire net forward contracts hedging portfolio consisted of 140.0 million Swiss francs equivalent for various expiry dates ranging through October 31, 2006 compared to a portfolio of 239.0 million Swiss franc equivalent for various expiry dates ranging through January 27, 2006 as of January 31, 2005. If the Company was to settle its Swiss franc forward contracts at January 31, 2006, the net result would be a loss of $1.6 million, net of tax benefit of $1.0 million. The Company had 10.0 million Swiss franc option contracts related to cash flow hedges for various expiry dates ranging through October 27, 2006 as of January 31, 2006 compared to 30.0 million Swiss franc option contracts for various expiry dates ranging through October 31, 2005 as of January 31, 2005. If the Company was to settle its Swiss franc option contracts at January 31, 2006, the net result would be a gain of $0.2 million, net of tax of $0.1 million.

The Company's Board of Directors authorized the hedging of the Company's Swiss franc denominated investment in its wholly-owned Swiss subsidiaries using purchase options under certain limitations. These hedges are treated as net investment hedges under SFAS No. 133. As of January 31, 2006, the Company did not hold a purchased option hedge portfolio related to net investment hedging compared to 50.0 million Swiss francs as of January 31, 2005.

Commodity Risk

Additionally, the Company has a hedging program related to gold used in the manufacturing of the Company's watches. Under this hedging program, the Company purchases various commodity derivative instruments, primarily future contracts. These derivatives are documented as SFAS No. 133 cash flow hedges, and gains and losses on these derivative instruments are first reflected in other comprehensive income, and later reclassified into earnings, partially offset by the effects of gold market price changes on the underlying actual gold purchases. If the Company did not engage in a gold hedging program, any changes in the gold price would have an equal effect on the Company's cost of sales. The Company did not hold any futures contracts in its gold hedge portfolio related to cash flow hedges as of January 31, 2006.

Debt and Interest Rate Risk

In addition, the Company has certain debt obligations with variable interest rates, which are based on LIBOR plus a fixed additional interest rate. The Company does not hedge these interest rate risks. The Company also has certain debt obligations with fixed interest rates. The differences between the market based interest rates at

36

January 31, 2006, and the fixed rates were unfavorable. The Company believes that a 1% change in interest rates would affect the Company's net income by approximately $0.6 million.

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

The Company, under the supervision and with the participation of its management, including the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures, as such terms are defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures are effective as of the end of the period covered by this report.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There has been no change in the Company's internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended January 31, 2006, that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.

It should be noted that while the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer believe that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures provide a reasonable level of assurance that they are effective, they do not expect that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures or internal control over financial reporting will prevent all errors and fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived or operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met.

See Consolidated Financial Statements and Supplementary Data for Management's Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting and the Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm containing an attestation thereto.

Management's Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

The management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such terms are defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act, for the Company. With the participation of the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, the Company's management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting based on the framework and criteria established in Internal Control - Integrated Framework, issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Based on this evaluation, the Company's management has concluded that the Company's internal control over financial reporting was effective as of January 31, 2006.

Management's assessment of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of January 31, 2006 has been audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, an independent registered public accounting firm, as stated in their report which appears herein.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

To the Board of Directors and Shareholders of Movado Group, Inc.:

We have completed integrated audits of Movado Group, Inc.'s 2006 and 2005 consolidated financial statements and of its internal control over financial reporting as of January 31, 2006, and an audit of its 2004 consolidated financial statements in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Our opinions, based on our audits, are presented below.

Consolidated financial statements and financial statement schedule

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements listed in the accompanying index present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Movado Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries at January 31, 2006 and 2005, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended January 31, 2006 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. In addition, in our opinion, the financial statement schedule listed in the accompanying index presents fairly, in all material respects, the information set forth therein when read in conjunction with the related consolidated financial statements. These financial statements and financial statement schedule are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements and financial statement schedule based on our audits. We conducted our audits of these statements in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit of financial statements includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, and evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

Internal control over financial reporting

Also, in our opinion, management's assessment, included in "Management's Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting" listed in the accompanying index, that the Company maintained effective internal control over financial reporting as of January 31, 2006 based on criteria established in Internal Control - Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO), is fairly stated, in all material respects, based on those criteria. Furthermore, in our opinion, the Company maintained, in all material respects, effective internal control over financial reporting as of January 31, 2006, based on criteria established in Internal Control - Integrated Framework issued by the COSO. The Company's management is responsible for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting. Our responsibility is to express opinions on management's assessment and on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting based on our audit. We conducted our audit of internal control over financial reporting in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether effective internal control over financial reporting was maintained in all material respects. An audit of internal control over financial reporting includes obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, evaluating management's assessment, testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control, and performing such other procedures as we consider necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinions.

F-2

A company's internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company's internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (i) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (iii) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

NOTES TO MOVADO GROUP, INC.'S CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 1 - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Organization and Business

Movado Group, Inc. (the "Company") is a designer, manufacturer and distributor of quality watches with prominent brands in almost every price category comprising the watch industry. In fiscal 2006, the Company marketed seven distinctive brands of watches: Movado, Ebel, Concord, ESQ, Coach, HUGO BOSS and Tommy Hilfiger, which compete in most segments of the watch market.

Movado, Ebel and Concord watches are generally manufactured in Switzerland by independent third party assemblers with some in-house assembly in Bienne and La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. Movado, Ebel and Concord watches are manufactured using Swiss movements and other components obtained from third party suppliers. Coach, ESQ, Tommy Hilfiger and HUGO BOSS watches are manufactured by independent contractors. Coach and ESQ watches are manufactured using Swiss movements and other components purchased from third party suppliers. Tommy Hilfiger and HUGO BOSS watches are manufactured using movements and other components purchased from third party suppliers.

In addition to its sales to trade customers and independent distributors, through a wholly-owned domestic subsidiary, the Company sells Movado watches, as well as proprietary Movado jewelry, tabletop and accessories directly to consumers in its Movado Boutiques. Additionally, the Company operates outlet stores throughout the United States, through which it sells discontinued models and factory seconds.

Principles of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. Intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated.

Use of Estimates in the Preparation of Financial Statements

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The Company uses estimates when accounting for sales discounts, rebates, allowances and incentives, warranty, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, contingencies and asset and liability valuations.

Reclassification

Certain reclassifications were made to prior years' financial statement amounts and related note disclosures to conform to the fiscal 2006 presentation.

Translation of Foreign Currency Financial Statements and Foreign Currency Transactions

The financial statements of the Company's international subsidiaries have been translated into United States dollars by translating balance sheet accounts at year-end exchange rates and statement of operations accounts at

F-8

average exchange rates for the year. Foreign currency transaction gains and losses are charged or credited to earnings as incurred. Foreign currency translation gains and losses are reflected in the equity section of the Company's consolidated balance sheet in accumulated other comprehensive income
(loss). The balance of the foreign currency translation adjustment, included in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income, was $30.3 million and $48.1 million as of January 31, 2006 and 2005, respectively.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash equivalents are considered all highly liquid investments with original maturities at date of purchase of three months or less.

Trade Receivables

Trade receivables as shown on the consolidated balance sheet is net of allowances. The allowance for doubtful accounts is determined through an analysis of the aging of accounts receivable, assessments of collectibility based on historic trends, the financial condition of the Company's customers and an evaluation of economic conditions. The Company writes off uncollectible trade receivables once collection efforts have been exhausted and third parties confirm the balance is not recoverable.

The Company's trade customers include department stores, jewelry store chains and independent jewelers. Movado, Ebel, Concord, Coach, HUGO BOSS and Tommy Hilfiger watches are also marketed outside the U.S. through a network of independent distributors. Accounts receivable are stated net of allowances for doubtful accounts of $7.0 million, $6.8 million and $6.7 million and net of estimated sales returns and allowances of $18.7 million, $21.2 million and $17.3 million at January 31, 2006, 2005 and 2004, respectively.

The Company's concentrations of credit risk arise primarily from accounts receivable related to trade customers during the peak selling seasons. The Company has significant accounts receivable balances due from major national chain and department stores. The Company's results of operations could be materially adversely affected in the event any of these customers or a group of these customers defaulted on all or a significant portion of their obligations to the Company as a result of financial difficulties. As of January 31, 2006, there were no known situations with any of the Company's major customers which indicate the customer's inability to make the required payments.

Sales returns and allowances for the fiscal years ended January 31, 2006, 2005 and 2004 were as follows (in thousands):

                                    2006       2005       2004

                                  ========   ========   ========

F-9

Inventories

The Company values its inventory at the lower of cost or market. The Company's domestic inventory is valued using the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method. The cost of finished goods and component inventories, held by overseas subsidiaries, are determined using average cost. The Company's management regularly reviews its sales to customers and customers' sell through at retail to determine excess or obsolete inventory reserves. Inventory with less than acceptable turn rates is classified as discontinued and, together with the related component parts which can be assembled into saleable finished goods, is sold through the Company's outlet stores. When management determines that finished product is unsaleable in the Company's outlet stores or when it is impractical to build the remaining components into watches for sale in the outlets, a reserve is established for the cost of those products and components. In addition, as part of the acquisition of Ebel, a significant value of parts and components were acquired that could not readily be identifiable to be produced as watches or for future after sales service needs. These parts and components have been reserved for based on future expected usage. These estimates could vary significantly, either favorably or unfavorably, from actual requirements depending on future economic conditions, customer inventory levels, expected usage or competitive conditions which may differ from expectations.

Property, Plant and Equipment

Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation of buildings is amortized using the straight-line method based on the useful life of 40 years. Depreciation of furniture and equipment is provided using the straight-line method based on the estimated useful lives of assets, which range from four to ten years. Computer software is amortized using the straight-line method over periods which range from five to seven years. Leasehold improvements are amortized using the straight-line method over the lesser of the term of the lease or the estimated useful life of the leasehold improvement. Design fees and tooling costs are amortized using the straight-line method based on the useful life of three years. Upon the disposition of property, plant and equipment, the accumulated depreciation is deducted from the original cost and any gain or loss is reflected in current earnings.

Long-Lived Assets

The Company establishes the estimated useful lives of its depreciable assets based on factors including historical experience, the expected beneficial service period of the asset, the quality and durability of the asset and the Company's maintenance policy including periodic upgrades. Changes in useful lives are made on a prospective basis unless factors indicate the carrying amounts of the assets may not be recoverable and an impairment write-down is necessary.

The Company performs an impairment review, at a minimum, on an annual basis. However, the Company will review its long-lived assets for impairment once events or changes in circumstances indicate, in management's judgment, that the carrying value of such assets may not be recoverable. When such a determination has been made, management compares the carrying value of the assets with their estimated future undiscounted cash flows. If it is determined that an impairment loss has occurred, the loss is recognized during that period. The impairment loss is calculated as the difference between asset carrying values and the fair value of the long-lived assets.

During fiscal 2006, the Company performed the review which resulted in no impairment charge. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005, the Company determined that the carrying value of its long-lived assets in the Movado Boutique located in the Soho section of New York City, may not be recoverable and performed an

F-10

impairment review. The impairment review was performed pursuant to SFAS No. 144 because of an economic downturn affecting the Boutique operations and revenue forecasts. As a result, the Company recorded a non-cash impairment charge of $2.0 million consisting of property, plant and equipment of $0.8 million and other assets of $1.2 million. The entire impairment charge is included in the selling, general and administrative expenses in the fiscal 2005 Consolidated Statement of Income. There were no impairment losses related to long-lived assets in fiscal 2004.

Deferred Rent Obligations and Contributions from Landlords

The Company accounts for rent expense under non-cancelable operating leases with scheduled rent increases on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The excess of straight-line rent expense over scheduled payments is recorded as a deferred liability. In addition, the Company receives build out contributions from landlords primarily as an incentive for the Company to lease retail store space from the landlords. This is also recorded as a deferred liability. Such amounts are amortized as a reduction of rent expense over the life of the related lease.

Capitalized Software Costs

The Company capitalizes certain computer software costs after technological feasibility has been established. The costs are amortized utilizing the straight-line method over the economic lives of the related products ranging from five to seven years.

Intangibles

Intangible assets consist primarily of trade names and trademarks and are recorded at cost. Trade names are not amortized. Trademarks are amortized over ten years. The Company continually reviews intangible assets to evaluate whether events or changes have occurred that would suggest an impairment of carrying value. An impairment would be recognized when expected undiscounted future operating cash flows are lower than the carrying value. At January 31, 2006 and 2005, intangible assets at cost were $10.3 million and $13.5 million, respectively, and related accumulated amortization of intangibles was $5.7 million and $4.5 million, respectively. Amortization expense for fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004 was $1.2 million, $1.0 million and $0.7 million, respectively.

Derivative Financial Instruments

The Company utilizes derivative financial instruments to reduce foreign currency fluctuation risks. The Company accounts for its derivative financial instruments in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 133, "Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities", ("SFAS No. 133") as amended by SFAS No. 137, SFAS No. 138 and SFAS No. 149. SFAS No. 133, as amended, establishes accounting and reporting standards for derivative instruments and hedging activities. They require that an entity recognize all derivatives as either assets or liabilities in the statement of financial condition and measure those instruments at fair value. Changes in the fair value of those instruments will be reported in earnings or other comprehensive income depending on the use of the derivative and whether it qualifies for hedge accounting. The accounting for gains and losses associated with changes in the fair value of the derivative and the effect on the consolidated financial statements will depend on its hedge designation and whether the hedge is highly effective in achieving offsetting changes in the fair value of cash flows of the asset or liability hedged.

F-11

The Company's risk management policy is to enter into forward exchange contracts and purchase foreign currency options, under certain limitations, to reduce exposure to adverse fluctuations in foreign exchange rates and, to a lesser extent, in commodity prices related to its purchases of watches. When entered into, the Company designates and documents these derivative instruments as a cash flow hedge of a specific underlying exposure, as well as the risk management objectives and strategies for undertaking the hedge transactions. Changes in the fair value of a derivative that is designated and documented as a cash flow hedge and is highly effective, are recorded in other comprehensive income until the underlying transaction affects earnings, and then are later reclassified into earnings in the same account as the hedged transaction. The Company formally assesses, both at the inception and at each financial quarter thereafter, the effectiveness of the derivative instrument hedging the underlying forecasted cash flow transaction. Any ineffectiveness related to the derivative financial instruments' change in fair value will be recognized in the period in which the ineffectiveness was calculated.

The Company uses forward exchange contracts to offset its exposure to certain foreign currency liabilities. These forward contracts are not designated as SFAS No. 133 hedges and, therefore, changes in the fair value of these derivatives are recognized into earnings, thereby offsetting the current earnings effect of the related foreign currency liabilities.

During fiscal 2003, the Company's risk management policy was modified to include net investment hedging of the Company's Swiss franc-denominated investment in its wholly-owned subsidiaries located in Switzerland using purchase foreign currency options under certain limitations. When entered into for this purpose, the Company designates and documents the derivative instrument as a net investment hedge of a specific underlying exposure, as well as the risk management objectives and strategies for undertaking the hedge transactions. Changes in the fair value of a derivative that is designated and documented as a net investment hedge are recorded in other comprehensive income in the same manner as the cumulative translation adjustment of the Company's Swiss franc-denominated investment. The Company formally assesses, both at the inception and at each financial quarter thereafter, the effectiveness of the derivative instrument hedging the net investment.

All of the Company's derivative instruments have liquid markets to assess fair value. The Company does not enter into any derivative instruments for trading purposes.

During fiscal 2006, the Company recorded a pre-tax loss of $1.6 million in other expense, representing the impact of the discontinuation of foreign currency cash flow hedges because it was not probable that the forecasted transactions would occur by the end of the originally specified time period.

Revenue Recognition

In the wholesale segment, the Company recognizes its revenues upon transfer of title and risk of loss in accordance with its FOB shipping point terms of sale and after the sales price is fixed and determinable and collectibility is reasonably assured. In the retail segment, transfer of title and risk of loss occurs at the time of register receipt. The Company records estimates for sales returns, volume-based programs and sales and cash discount allowances in the same period that the sales are recorded as a reduction of revenue. These estimates are based upon historical analysis, customer agreements and/or currently known factors that arise in the normal course of business.

F-12

Cost of Sales

Costs of sales of the Company's products consist primarily of component costs, internal assembly costs and unit overhead costs associated with the Company's supply chain operations in Switzerland and Asia. The Company's supply chain operations consist of logistics management of assembly operations and product sourcing in Switzerland and Asia and minor assembly in Switzerland.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

The Company's SG&A expenses consist primarily of marketing, selling, distribution and general and administrative expenses. Annual marketing expenditures are based principally on overall strategic considerations relative to maintaining or increasing market share in markets that management considers to be crucial to the Company's continued success as well as on general economic conditions in the various markets around the world in which the Company sells its products.

Selling expenses consist primarily of salaries, sales commissions, sales force travel and related expenses, expenses associated with Baselworld, the annual watch and jewelry trade show and other industry trade shows and operating costs incurred in connection with the Company's retail business. Sales commissions vary with overall sales levels. Retail selling expenses consist primarily of payroll related and store occupancy costs.

Distribution expenses consist primarily of salaries of distribution staff, rental and other occupancy costs, security, depreciation and amortization of furniture and leasehold improvements and shipping supplies.

General and administrative expenses consist primarily of salaries and other employee compensation, employee benefit plan costs, office rent, management information systems costs, professional fees, bad debts, depreciation and amortization of furniture and leasehold improvements, patent and trademark expenses and various other general corporate expenses.

Warranty Costs

The Company has warranty obligations in connection with the sale of its watches. All watches sold by the Company come with limited warranties covering the movement against defects in material and workmanship for periods ranging from two to three years from the date of purchase, with the exception of Tommy Hilfiger watches, for which the warranty period is ten years. In addition, the warranty period is five years for the gold plating for Movado watch cases and bracelets. As a practice, warranty costs are expensed as incurred and recorded in the quarterly consolidated statement of income. The warranty obligations are evaluated quarterly and reviewed in detail on an annual basis to determine if any material changes occurred. When changes in warranty costs are experienced, the Company will adjust the warranty accrual as required. Warranty liability for the fiscal years ended January 31, 2006, 2005 and 2004 was as follows (in thousands):

Preopening Costs

Costs associated with the opening of new boutique and outlet stores, including pre-opening rent, are expensed in the period incurred.

Marketing

The Company expenses the production costs of an advertising campaign at the commencement date of the advertising campaign. Included in marketing expenses are costs associated with cooperative advertising, media advertising, production costs and costs of point-of-sale materials and displays. These costs are recorded as SG&A expenses. The Company participates in cooperative advertising programs on a voluntary basis and receives a "separately identifiable benefit in exchange for the consideration". Since the amount of consideration paid to the retailer does not exceed the fair value of the benefit received by the Company, these costs are recorded as SG&A expenses as opposed to being recorded as a reduction of revenue. Marketing expense for fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004 amounted to $75.9 million, $67.8 million and $53.1 million, respectively.

Included in the other current assets in the consolidated balance sheets as of January 31, 2006 and 2005 are prepaid advertising costs of $3.8 million and $2.5 million, respectively. These prepaid costs represent advertising costs paid to licensors in advance, pursuant to the Company's licensing agreements and sponsorships.

Shipping and Handling Costs

Amounts charged to customers and costs incurred by the Company related to shipping and handling are included in net sales and cost of goods sold, respectively.

Income Taxes

The Company follows Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 109, "Accounting for Income Taxes" ("SFAS No. 109"). Under the asset and liability method of SFAS No. 109, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax laws and tax rates, in each jurisdiction the Company operates, and applies to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities due to a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. In addition, the amounts of any future tax benefits are reduced by a valuation allowance to the extent such benefits are not expected to be realized on a more-likely-than-not basis. The Company calculates estimated income taxes in each of the jurisdictions in which it operates. This process involves

F-14

estimating actual current tax expense along with assessing temporary differences resulting from differing treatment of items for both book and tax purposes.

Earnings Per Share

The Company presents net income per share on a basic and diluted basis. Basic earnings per share is computed using weighted-average shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share is computed using the weighted-average number of shares outstanding adjusted for dilutive common stock equivalents.

The weighted-average number of shares outstanding for basic earnings per share were 25,273,000, 24,708,000 and 24,101,000 for fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004, respectively. For diluted earnings per share, these amounts were increased by 907,000, 875,000 and 776,000 in fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004, respectively, due to potentially dilutive common stock equivalents issuable under the Company's stock option plans. For all periods presented, basic and diluted shares outstanding, and the related "per share" amounts reflect the effect of the fiscal 2005 two-for-one stock split.

Stock-Based Compensation

Employee stock options are accounted for under the intrinsic value method, which measures compensation cost as the excess, if any, of the quoted market price of the stock at grant date over the amount an employee must pay to acquire the stock. Accordingly, compensation expense has not been recognized for stock options granted at or above fair value. Had compensation expense been determined and recorded based upon the fair value recognition provisions of SFAS No. 123, "Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation", net income (in thousands) and net income per share would have been reduced to pro forma amounts for the fiscal years ended January 31, 2006, 2005 and 2004 as follows:

The weighted-average fair value of each option grant estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model is $8.11, $7.10 and $5.89 per share in fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004, respectively. The following weighted-average assumptions were used for grants in 2006, 2005 and 2004:
dividend yield of 1.74% for fiscal 2006, 0.99% for fiscal 2005 and 0.87% for fiscal 2004; expected volatility of 47% for fiscal 2006, 48% for fiscal 2005 and 52% for fiscal 2004; risk-free interest rates of 3.77% for fiscal 2006, 4.26% for fiscal 2005 and 3.04% for fiscal 2004 and expected lives of three to seven years for fiscal 2006, three to seven years for fiscal 2005 and four to seven years for fiscal 2004.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

In November 2004, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 151, "Inventory Costs", an amendment of ARB No. 43, Chapter 4 ("SFAS No.

F-15

151"). The amendments made by SFAS No. 151 clarify that abnormal amounts of idle facility expense, freight, handling costs, and wasted materials (spoilage) should be recognized as current-period charges by requiring the allocation of fixed production overheads to inventory based on the normal capacity of the production facilities. The guidance is effective for inventory costs incurred during fiscal years beginning after June 15, 2005, and is not expected to have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In December 2004, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123(R), "Share-Based Payment", which is a revision of FASB Statement No. 123, "Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation" ("SFAS No. 123(R)"). SFAS No. 123(R) supersedes APB Opinion No. 25, "Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees", and amends FASB Statement No. 95, "Statement of Cash Flows". Generally, the approach in SFAS No. 123(R) is similar to the approach described in SFAS No. 123. SFAS No. 123(R) requires all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, to be recognized in the income statement based on their fair values. Pro forma disclosure will no longer be an alternative. Public entities are required to apply SFAS No. 123(R) as of the first annual reporting period that begins after June 15, 2005.

The Company continues to use the intrinsic value based method of accounting for share-based payments. The Company uses the Black-Scholes valuation model to estimate the value of stock options granted to employees. SFAS No. 123(R) requires the benefits of tax deductions in excess of recognized compensation cost to be reported as a financing cash flow, rather than as an operating cash flow as required under current literature. This requirement will reduce net operating cash flows and increase net financing cash flows in periods after adoption. The Company will be adopting SFAS No. 123(R) in the first quarter of fiscal 2007 using the modified prospective application transition method. For outstanding unvested options granted as of January 31, 2006, the adoption is expected to have an impact of approximately $1.0 million, net of tax, on the Company's consolidated results of operations for fiscal year ending January 31, 2007.

In December 2004, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 153, "Exchanges of Nonmonetary Assets--An Amendment of APB Opinion No. 29, Accounting for Nonmonetary Transactions" ("SFAS No. 153"). SFAS No. 153 eliminates the exception from fair value measurement for nonmonetary exchanges of similar productive assets in paragraph 21(b) of APB Opinion No. 29, "Accounting for Nonmonetary Transactions", and replaces it with an exception for exchanges that do not have commercial substance. SFAS No. 153 specifies that a nonmonetary exchange has commercial substance if the future cash flows of the entity are expected to change significantly as a result of the exchange. SFAS No. 153 is effective for the fiscal periods beginning after June 15, 2005. The adoption of SFAS No. 153 is not expected to have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In March 2005, the FASB issued Interpretation No. 47, "Accounting for Conditional Asset Retirement Obligations" ("FIN 47"). FIN 47 clarifies that the term "conditional asset retirement obligation" as used in SFAS No. 143, "Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations," refers to a legal obligation to perform an asset retirement activity in which the timing and (or) method of settlement are conditional on a future event that may or may not be within the control of the entity. FIN 47 is effective no later than the end of fiscal years ending after December 15, 2005. The adoption of FIN 47 did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In June 2005, the Emerging Issues Task Force ("EITF") reached consensus on EITF 05-6, "Determining the Amortization Period for Leasehold Improvements". Under EITF 05-6, leasehold improvements placed in service significantly after and not contemplated at or near the beginning of the lease term, should be amortized over the lesser of the useful life of the assets or a term that includes renewals that are reasonably assured at the

F-16

date the leasehold improvements are purchased. EITF 05-6 is effective for periods beginning after June 29, 2005. The adoption of EITF 05-6 did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

NOTE 2 - ACQUISITION

On December 22, 2003, the Company entered into an agreement to acquire Ebel S.A. and the worldwide business related to the Ebel brand (collectively "Ebel") from LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton ("LVMH"). On March 1, 2004, the Company completed the acquisition of Ebel with the exception of the payment for the acquired Ebel business in Germany, which was completed July 30, 2004.

Under the terms of the agreement, the Company acquired all of the outstanding common stock of Ebel S.A. and the related worldwide businesses in exchange for:

- 51.6 million Swiss francs in cash; and

- the assumption of a short-term mortgage payable of 6.6 million Swiss francs.

Under the purchase method of accounting, the Company recorded an aggregate purchase price of approximately $45.0 million, which consisted of approximately $40.6 million in cash and $4.4 million in deal costs and other incurred liabilities, which primarily consisted of legal, accounting, investment banking and financial advisory services fees.

In accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 141, "Business Combinations", ("SFAS No. 141"), the Company allocated the purchase price to the tangible assets, intangible assets, and liabilities acquired based on their estimated fair values. The fair value assigned to tangible and intangible assets acquired was based on an independent appraisal. The fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed exceeds the purchase price. That excess has been allocated as a pro rata reduction of the amounts that otherwise would have been assigned to all of the acquired assets except for certain specific types of assets as set forth in SFAS No. 141. The pro forma adjustments were based upon an independent assessment of appraised values. The assessment is complete. In accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 142, "Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets" ("SFAS No. 142"), goodwill and purchased intangibles with indefinite lives are not amortized but will be reviewed annually for impairment. Purchased intangibles with finite lives are amortized on a straight-line basis over their respective estimated useful lives.

In accordance with Emerging Issues Task Force No. 95-3 ("EITF 95-3"), "Recognition of Liabilities in Connection with a Purchase Business Combination", the Company recognized costs associated with exiting an activity of an acquired company and involuntary termination of employees of an acquired company as liabilities assumed in a purchase business combination and included the liabilities in the allocation of the acquisition cost. The liability recognized in connection with the acquisition of Ebel was comprised of approximately $2.4 million for employee severance, $0.2 million for lease terminations, $1.7 million for exit costs related to certain promotional and purchase contracts and $0.4 million of other liabilities. For the years ended January 31, 2006 and 2005, payments against employee severance, lease terminations, exit costs and other liabilities amounted to $2.3 million, $0.2 million, $1.7 million and $0.4 million, respectively. There were no further adjustments related to the abovementioned accruals during the fiscal year ended January 31, 2006.

F-17

As part of the acquisition, the Company recorded deferred tax assets resulting from Ebel's net operating loss carryforwards amounting to approximately 165.0 million Swiss francs. The Company established a full valuation allowance on the deferred tax assets. The total purchase price has been allocated as follows (in thousands):

Cash                                       $ 1,340

                                           =======

In allocating the purchase price, the Company considered, among other factors, its intention for future use of the acquired assets, analyses of historical financial performance and estimates of future performance of Ebel's products.

NOTE 5 - BANK CREDIT ARRANGEMENTS AND LINES OF CREDIT

On June 30, 2005, the Company renewed its promissory note for a $5.0 million unsecured working capital line with Bank of New York, originally dated June 27, 2000. The line expires on July 31, 2006. The Company had no outstanding borrowings under the line as of January 31, 2006 and 2005.

On December 12, 2005, the Company executed a line of credit letter agreement with Bank of America ("B of A") and an amended and restated promissory note in the principal amount of up to $20.0 million payable to B of A. Pursuant to the line of credit letter agreement, B of A will consider requests for short-term loans and documentary letters of credit for the importation of merchandise inventory, the aggregate amount of which at any time outstanding shall not exceed $20.0 million. The Company's obligations under the agreement are guaranteed by its subsidiaries, Movado Retail Group, Inc. and Movado LLC. Pursuant to the amended and restated promissory note, the Company promised to pay to B of A $20.0 million, or such lesser amount as may then be the unpaid balance of all loans made by B of A to the Company thereunder, in immediately available funds upon the maturity date of June 16, 2006. The Company has the right to prepay all or part of any

F-19

outstanding amounts under the promissory note without penalty at any time prior to the maturity date. The amended and restated promissory note bears interest at an annual rate equal to either (i) a floating rate equal to the prime rate or
(ii) such fixed rate as may be agreed upon by the Company and B of A for an interest period which is also then agreed upon. The amended and restated promissory note contains various representations and warranties and events of default that are customary for instruments of that type. As of January 31, 2006, there were no outstanding borrowings against this line.

On December 13, 2005, the Company executed a promissory note in the principal amount of up to $37.0 million payable to JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. ("Chase").

The promissory note contains various events of default that are customary for instruments of that type. In addition, it is an event of default for any security interest or other encumbrance to be created or imposed on the Company's property, other than as permitted in the lien covenant of the Credit Agreement. Chase issued 11 irrevocable standby letters of credit for retail and operating facility leases to various landlords, for the administration of the Movado Boutique private-label credit card and Canadian payroll to the Royal Bank of Canada totaling $1.2 million with expiration dates through March 18, 2007. As of January 31, 2006, there were no outstanding borrowings against this line.

On December 15, 2005, Movado Group, Inc., and its Swiss subsidiaries, MGI Luxury Group S.A. and Movado Watch Company SA, entered into a credit agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., JPMorgan Securities, Inc., Bank of America, N.A., The Bank of New York and Citibank, N.A. (the "Swiss Credit Agreement") which provides for a revolving credit facility of 90.0 million Swiss francs and matures on December 15, 2010. The obligations of the Company's two Swiss subsidiaries under this credit agreement are guaranteed by the Company under a Parent Guarantee, dated as of December 15, 2005, in favor of the lenders. The credit agreement contains financial covenants including an interest coverage ratio, average debt coverage ratio, limitations on capital expenditures and certain non-financial covenants that restrict the Company's activities regarding investments and acquisitions, mergers, certain transactions with affiliates, creation of liens, asset transfers, payment of dividends and limitation of the amount of debt outstanding. Until the date immediately preceding the first day of the calendar month following the date of delivery of the first annual or quarterly financial statements after December 15, 2005, the credit facility bears interest at a rate equal to the LIBOR (as defined in the Swiss Credit Agreement) plus .50% per annum, after which it will bear interest at a rate equal to the LIBOR plus a margin ranging from .50% per annum to .875% per annum (depending upon a leverage ratio). As of January 31, 2006, the Company was in compliance with all financial and non-financial covenants and had 83.0 million Swiss francs, with a dollar equivalent of $65.0 million, outstanding under this revolving credit facility.

On December 15, 2005, the Company and its Swiss subsidiaries, MGI Luxury Group S.A. and Movado Watch Company SA, entered into a credit agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., JPMorgan Securities, Inc., Bank of America, N.A., The Bank of New York and Citibank, N.A. (the "US Credit Agreement") which provides for a revolving credit facility of $50.0 million (including a sublimit for borrowings in Swiss francs of up to $25.0 million) with a provision to allow for an increase of an additional $50.0 million subject to certain

F-20

terms and conditions. The US Credit Agreement will mature on December 15, 2010. The obligations of MGI Luxury Group S.A. and Movado Watch Company SA are guaranteed by the Company under a Parent Guarantee, dated as of December 15, 2005, in favor of the lenders. The obligations of the Company are guaranteed by certain domestic subsidiaries of the Company under subsidiary guarantees, in favor of the lenders. The credit agreement contains financial covenants including an interest coverage ratio, average debt coverage ratio, limitations on capital expenditures and certain non-financial covenants that restrict the Company's activities regarding investments and acquisitions, mergers, certain transactions with affiliates, creation of liens, asset transfers, payment of dividends and limitation of the amount of debt outstanding. Until the date immediately preceding the first day of the calendar month following the date of delivery of the first annual or quarterly financial statements after December 15, 2005, the credit facility bears interest, at Borrower's option, at a rate equal to the Adjusted LIBOR (as defined in the US Credit Agreement) plus .50% per annum, or the Alternate Base Rate (as defined in the US Credit Agreement), after which it will bear interest, at Borrower's option, at a rate equal to the Adjusted LIBOR plus a margin ranging from .50% per annum to .875% per annum (depending upon a leverage ratio), or the Alternate Base Rate. As of January 31, 2006, the Company was in compliance with all financial and non-financial covenants and there were no outstanding borrowings against this line.

A Swiss subsidiary of the Company maintains unsecured lines of credit with an unspecified length of time with a Swiss bank. Available credit under these lines totaled 8.0 million Swiss francs, with dollar equivalents of $6.3 million and $6.7 million at January 31, 2006 and 2005. As of January 31, 2006, the Swiss bank has guaranteed the Company's Swiss subsidiary's obligations to certain Swiss third parties in the amount of $3.3 million in various foreign currencies. As of January 31, 2006, there were no outstanding borrowings against these lines.

The Company pays a facility fee on the unused portion of the committed lines of the Swiss Credit Agreement and the US Credit Agreement. The unused line of credit of the committed lines was $55.5 million at January 31, 2006.

Aggregate maximum and average monthly outstanding borrowings against the Company's lines of credit and related weighted-average interest rates during fiscal 2006 and 2005 were as follows (dollars in thousands):

The Series A Senior Notes ("Series A Senior Notes") were issued on December 1, 1998 under a Note Purchase and Private Shelf Agreement and bear interest at 6.90% per annum. Interest is payable semiannually on April 30 and October 30. These notes mature on October 30, 2010 and are subject to annual payments of $5.0 million commencing on October 31, 2006. These notes contain financial covenants including an interest coverage ratio, average debt ratio, maintenance of tangible net worth, limitations on capital expenditures and certain non-financial covenants that restrict the Company's activities regarding investments and acquisitions, mergers, certain transactions with affiliates, creation of liens, asset transfers, payment of dividends and limitation of the amount of debt outstanding. At January 31, 2006, the Company was in compliance with all financial and non-financial covenants and $25.0 million of these notes were issued and outstanding.

As of March 21, 2004, the Company amended its Note Purchase and Private Shelf Agreement, originally dated March 21, 2001, to expire on March 21, 2007. This agreement allows for the issuance, for up to three years after the date thereof, of senior promissory notes in the aggregate principal amount of up to $40.0 million with maturities up to 12 years from their original date of issuance. On October 8, 2004, the Company issued, pursuant to the Note Purchase Agreement, 4.79% Senior Series A-2004 Notes due 2011 (the "Senior Series A-2004 Notes"), in an aggregate principal amount of $20.0 million, which will mature on October 8, 2011 and are subject to annual repayments of $5.0 million commencing on October 8, 2008. Proceeds of the Senior Series A-2004 Notes will be used by the Company for capital expenditures, repayment of certain of its debt obligations and general corporate purposes.

NOTE 7 - DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

The Company follows the provisions of SFAS No. 133 requiring that all derivative financial instruments be recorded on the balance sheet at fair value.

As of January 31, 2006, the balance of deferred net losses on derivative financial instruments documented as cash flow hedges included in accumulated other comprehensive income ("AOCI") was $1.4 million in net losses, net of tax benefit of $0.8 million, compared to $2.0 million in net gains at January 31, 2005, net of tax of $1.2 million and $1.6 million in net gains at January 31, 2004, net of tax of $1.0 million. The Company estimates that a substantial portion of the deferred net losses at January 31, 2006 will be realized into earnings over the next 12 months as a result of transactions that are expected to occur over that period. The primary underlying transaction which will cause the amount in AOCI to affect cost of goods sold consists of the Company's sell through of inventory purchased in Swiss francs. The maximum length of time the Company is hedging its exposure to the fluctuation in future cash flows for forecasted transactions is 24 months. For the years ended January 31, 2006, 2005 and 2004, the Company reclassified net losses from AOCI to earnings of $1.8 million, net of tax benefit of $1.1 million, $1.4 million in net gains, net of tax of $0.9 million, and $3.2 million in net gains, net of tax of $2.0 million, respectively.

During fiscal 2006, the Company recorded a pre-tax loss of $1.6 million in other expense, representing the impact of the discontinuation of foreign currency cash flow hedges because it was not probable that the forecasted transactions would occur by the end of the originally specified time period.

During fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004, the Company recorded no charge related to its assessment of the effectiveness of its derivative hedge portfolio because of the high degree of effectiveness between the hedging instrument and the underlying exposure being hedged.

Changes in the contracts' fair value due to spot-forward differences are excluded from the designated hedge relationship. The Company records these transactions in the cost of sales of the Consolidated Statements of Income.

The balance of the net loss included in the cumulative foreign currency translation adjustment associated with derivatives documented as net investment hedges was $1.5 million, net of a tax benefit of $0.9 million as of both January 31, 2006 and 2005 and a net loss of $1.0 million, net of a tax benefit of $0.6 million as of January 31, 2004. Under SFAS No. 133, changes in fair value of these instruments are recognized in currency

NOTE 8 - FAIR VALUE OF OTHER FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

The fair value of the Company's 4.79% Senior Notes and 6.90% Series A Senior Notes approximate 97% and 103% of the carrying value of the notes, respectively, as of January 31, 2006.

As of January 31, 2006, the Company had foreign net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $130.1 million, which are available to offset taxable income in future years. The majority of the carryforward tax losses ($117.2 million) were incurred in Switzerland in the Ebel business prior to the Company's acquisition of the Ebel business on March 1, 2004. Effective March 1, 2004, Ebel S.A. was merged into another wholly-owned Swiss subsidiary, and a Swiss tax ruling was obtained that allows the Ebel tax losses to offset taxable income in the surviving entity. As part of purchase accounting, the Company recorded net deferred tax assets for the Swiss tax losses and for the temporary differences between the Swiss tax basis and the assigned values of the net Ebel assets. The Company has established a partial valuation allowance on the deferred tax assets as a result of an evaluation of expected utilization of such tax benefits within the expiry of the tax losses through fiscal 2011. The recognition of the tax benefit has been applied to reduce the carrying value of acquired intangible assets to $0.3 million; subsequent recognition of deferred tax assets, if any, will be applied to reduce the carrying value of the intangible assets to zero prior to being recognized as a reduction of income tax expense. The Company recognized cash tax savings of $2.9 million on the utilization of the Swiss tax losses during the year. The remaining tax losses ($12.9 million) are related to the Company's former operations in Germany, and its current operations in Germany, Japan, and the United Kingdom. A full valuation allowance has been established on the deferred tax assets resulting from these losses due to the Company's current assessment that it is more-likely-than-not that the deferred tax assets will not be utilized. The Japan tax losses have a 7 year life while the German and United Kingdom tax losses have unlimited lives.

Management will continue to evaluate the appropriate level of allowance on all deferred tax assets, considering such factors as prior earnings history, expected future earnings, carryback and carryforward periods, and tax strategies that could potentially enhance the likelihood of realization of a deferred tax asset.

No provision has been made for federal income or withholding taxes which may be payable on the remittance of the undistributed retained earnings of foreign subsidiaries approximating $97.8 million at January 31, 2006, as those earnings are considered permanently reinvested. As a result of various tax planning strategies available to the Company, it is not practical to estimate the amount of tax, if any, that may be payable on the eventual distribution of these earnings.

The American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 (the "Act"), as enacted on October 22, 2004, provides for a temporary 85% dividends received deduction on certain foreign earnings repatriated during a one-year period. The deduction results in an approximate 5.25% U.S. federal tax rate on any repatriated earnings. To qualify for the deduction, the earnings must be reinvested in the United States pursuant to a domestic reinvestment plan established by the Company's Chief Executive Officer and approved by the Company's Board of Directors. Certain other criteria in the Act, applicable Treasury Regulations and guidance published (or that may be subsequently published) by the Internal Revenue Service or Treasury Department must be satisfied as well. During the fourth quarter of 2006, the Company approved a plan for reinvestment and repatriation of up to $150.0 million. Under the executed plan, the Company repatriated foreign earnings of $148.5 million. These earnings were previously considered to be indefinitely reinvested outside the U.S. During the year, the effective tax rate was increased to 40.8% principally as a result of the fourth quarter 2006 tax charge of $7.5 million associated with repatriated foreign earnings under the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004. The effective tax rate excluding the repatriation related tax charge was 24.06%. The fiscal 2005 effective tax rate was 20.5%.

NOTE 10 - OTHER ASSETS

In fiscal 1996, the Company entered into an agreement with a trust which owned an insurance policy issued on the lives of the Company's Chairman and his spouse. Under this agreement, the trust assigned the insurance policy to the Company as collateral to secure repayment by the trust of interest-free loans made by the Company to the trust in amounts equal to the premiums on said insurance policy (approximately $0.8 million per annum). The agreement required the trust to repay the loans from the proceeds of the policy. At January 31, 2003, the Company had outstanding loans from the trust of $5.2 million. On April 4, 2003, the agreement was amended and restated to transfer the policy from the trust to the Company in partial repayment of the loan

balance. The Company is the beneficiary of the policy insofar as upon the death of the Company's Chairman and his spouse, the proceeds of the policy would first be distributed to the Company to repay the premiums paid by the Company with the remaining proceeds distributed to the trust. As of January 31, 2006, total premiums paid were $7.6 million and the cash surrender value of the policy was $7.7 million.

NOTE 11 - LEASES

The Company leases office, distribution, retail and manufacturing facilities, and office equipment under operating leases, which expire at various dates through January 2017. Certain leases include renewal options and the payment of real estate taxes and other occupancy costs. Some leases also contain rent escalation clauses (step rents) that require additional rent amounts in the later years of the term. Rent expense for leases with step rents is recognized on a straight-line basis over the minimum lease term. Likewise, capital funding and other lease concessions that are occasionally provided to the Company, are recorded as deferred rent and amortized on a straight-line basis over the minimum lease term as adjustments to rent expense. Rent expense for equipment and distribution, factory and office facilities under operating leases was approximately $13.3 million, $12.6 million and $9.7 million in fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004, respectively. Minimum annual rentals at January 31, 2006 under noncancelable operating leases, which do not include real estate taxes and operating costs, are as follows (in thousands):

Pursuant to the Company's agreements with its licensors, the Company is required to pay minimum royalties and advertising. As of January 31, 2006, the Company's obligation related to its license agreements was $68.3 million.

The Company had outstanding purchase obligations of $40.3 million with suppliers at the end of fiscal 2006 for raw materials, finished watches and packaging in the normal course of business. These purchase obligation amounts do not represent total anticipated purchases but represent only amounts to be paid for items required to be purchased under agreements that are enforceable, legally binding and specify minimum quantity, price and term.

The Company is involved from time to time in legal claims involving trademarks and intellectual property, licensing, employee relations and other matters incidental to the Company's business. Although the outcome of such items cannot be determined with certainty, the Company's general counsel and management believe that the final outcome would not have a material effect on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

NOTE 13 - EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS

The Company maintains an Employee Savings Plan under Section 401(k) of the Internal Revenue Code. In addition, the Company maintains defined contribution employee benefit plans for its employees located in Switzerland. Company contributions and expenses of administering the plans amounted to $2.0 million, $1.9 million and $1.1 million in fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004, respectively.

Effective June 1, 1995, the Company adopted a defined contribution supplemental executive retirement plan ("SERP"). The SERP provides eligible executives with supplemental pension benefits in addition to amounts received under the Company's other retirement plan. The Company makes a matching contribution which vests equally over five years. During fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004, the Company recorded an expense related to the SERP of $0.7 million, $0.6 million and $0.5 million, respectively.

During fiscal 1999, the Company adopted a Stock Bonus Plan for all employees not in the SERP. Under the terms of this Stock Bonus Plan, the Company contributes a discretionary amount to the trust established under the plan. Each plan participant vests after five years in 100% of their respective prorata portion of such contribution. For fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004, the Company recorded an expense of $0.3 million for each period related to this plan.

On September 23, 1994, the Company entered into a Death and Disability Benefit Plan agreement with the Company's Chairman. Under the terms of the agreement, in the event of the Chairman's death or disability, the Company is required to make an annual benefit payment of approximately $0.3 million to his spouse for the lesser of ten years or her remaining lifetime. Neither the agreement nor the benefits payable thereunder are assignable and no benefits are payable to the estates or heirs of the Chairman or his spouse. Results of operations for each period include an actuarially determined charge related to this plan of $0.2 million for fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004.

Effective concurrently with the consummation of the Company's public offering in the fourth quarter of fiscal 1994, the Board of Directors and the shareholders of the Company approved the adoption of the Movado Group, Inc. 1993 Employee Stock Option Plan (the "Employee Stock Option Plan") for the benefit of certain officers, directors and key employees of the Company. The Employee Stock Option Plan was amended in fiscal 1997 and restated as the Movado Group, Inc. 1996 Stock Incentive Plan (the "Plan"). Under the Plan, as

F-28

amended and restated as of April 8, 2004, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors, which is comprised of the Company's four outside directors, has the authority to grant incentive stock options and nonqualified stock options, to purchase, as well as stock appreciation rights and stock awards, up to 9,000,000 shares of Common Stock. Options granted to participants under the Plan generally become exercisable in equal installments over three years and remain exercisable until the tenth anniversary of the date of grant. The option price may not be less than the fair market value of the stock at the time the options are granted.

Transactions in stock options under the Plan since fiscal 2003 are summarized as follows:

ARTICLE 2. THE LOANS.

Section 2.1. Syndicated Loans. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, each Lender agrees, severally and not jointly, to make, from time to time during the Availability Period, (a) Syndicated Loans to the Parent denominated in dollars, (b) Syndicated Loans to MWC denominated in a Foreign Currency and (c) Syndicated Loans to Luxury denominated in a Foreign Currency, in an aggregate principal amount at any time outstanding that will not result in:

(i) the sum of (x) such Lender's Syndicated Loan Exposure, plus (y) such Lender's L/C Exposure, plus (z) such Lender's Pro Rata Percentage of all outstanding Swingline Loans exceeding such Lender's Revolving Credit Commitment, or

(ii) the Dollar Equivalent of such Lender's outstanding Foreign Currency Loans exceeding such Lender's Pro Rata Percentage of the Foreign Currency Sublimit Dollar Amount; or

(iii) the Aggregate Credit Exposure exceeding the Total Revolving Credit Commitment.

Within the limits set forth in the preceding sentence and subject to the terms, conditions and limitations set forth herein, the Borrowers may borrow, pay or prepay and reborrow Syndicated Loans.

Section 2.2. Making of Syndicated Loans. (a) Each Syndicated Loan shall be made as part of a Borrowing consisting of Syndicated Loans made by the Lenders ratably in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit Commitments; provided, however, that the failure of any Lender to make any Syndicated Loan shall not in itself relieve any other Lender of its obligation to lend hereunder (it being understood, however, that no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make any Syndicated Loan required to be made by such other Lender). The Syndicated Loans comprising any Borrowing shall be in an

16

aggregate principal amount that is an integral multiple of $250,000 and that is not less than $1,000,000 (in the case of each ABR Borrowing) or $2,000,000 (in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing denominated in dollars) or 3,000,000 units of a particular Foreign Currency in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing denominated in such Foreign Currency; provided, however, that an ABR Borrowing may be in an amount that is equal to the remaining balance of the Total Revolving Credit Commitment. Syndicated Loans that are made pursuant to any Foreign Currency Borrowing shall be made in the particular Foreign Currency and in an aggregate principal amount specified in the applicable Syndicated Loan Borrowing Request (and the dollar amount thereof shall be determined by the Administrative Agent as of the day that is three Business Days before the day such Loans are made using the current Exchange Rate as of the day that is three Business Days before the day such Loans are made, which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error).

(b) Subject to Sections 4.1 and 4.3, each Borrowing of Syndicated Loans denominated in dollars shall be comprised entirely of ABR Loans or LIBOR Loans as the Parent may request pursuant to Section 2.3; and each Borrowing of Syndicated Loans in a particular Foreign Currency shall be comprised entirely of LIBOR Loans. Each Lender may at its option make any LIBOR Loan by causing any domestic or foreign branch of such Lender or any Affiliate of such Lender which is a Qualifying Bank to make such Loan; provided that any exercise of such option shall not affect the obligation of the applicable Borrower to repay such Loan in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Borrowings of more than one Type may be outstanding at the same time; provided, however, that no Borrower shall be entitled to request any Borrowing that, if made, would result in more than twelve LIBOR Borrowings outstanding hereunder at any time. Borrowings having different Interest Periods (regardless of whether they commence on the same date), or denominated in different currencies, or made by different Borrowers, shall be considered separate Borrowings.

(c) Each Lender shall make each Syndicated Loan denominated in dollars to be made by it hereunder on the proposed date thereof by wire transfer of immediately available funds by 12:00 noon, New York City time, on such date to the account of the Administrative Agent most recently designated by it for such purpose by notice to the Lenders. Each Lender shall make each Syndicated Loan denominated in a Foreign Currency to be made by it hereunder on the proposed date thereof by wire transfer of immediately available funds by 12:00 noon, London time (or the time of such other city designated by the Administrative Agent), on such date to the account of the Administrative Agent most recently designated by it for such purpose by notice to the Lenders. The Administrative Agent will make such Loans available to the applicable Borrower by promptly crediting the amounts so received, in like funds, to an account of such Borrower maintained with (i) the Administrative Agent in New York City in the case of such Loans denominated in dollars or (ii) the Administrative Agent (or its designee) in London (or such other city as the Administrative Agent may in its reasonable judgment designate in respect of particular Foreign Currency Loans) in the case of Foreign Currency Loans, in each case designated by the Parent (on its own behalf or on behalf of the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) in the applicable Syndicated Loan Borrowing Request; or if a Borrowing shall not occur on such date because any condition precedent herein specified shall not have been met, the Administrative Agent shall return the amounts so received to the respective Lenders.

17

(d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no Borrower shall be entitled to request any Borrowing of Syndicated Loans that are LIBOR Loans if the Interest Period requested with respect thereto would end after the Maturity Date.

Section 2.3. Borrowing Procedure as to Syndicated Loans. In order to request a Borrowing of Syndicated Loans, the Parent (on its own behalf or on behalf of the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) shall hand deliver or telecopy to the Administrative Agent a duly completed Syndicated Loan Borrowing Request (a) in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing, not later than (i) 11:00 a.m., New York City time (in the case of a Borrowing denominated in dollars) or (ii) 11:00
a.m., London time (in the case of a Borrowing denominated in a Foreign Currency), three Business Days before a proposed Borrowing, and (b) in the case of an ABR Borrowing, not later than 12:00 noon, New York City time, one Business Day before a proposed Borrowing. Notwithstanding the immediately preceding sentence, the Administrative Agent agrees that it will (subject to the Authorization Letter) accept from the Parent a Syndicated Loan Borrowing Request by telephone by the applicable date and time specified in the immediately preceding sentence, provided that the same is confirmed by the Parent to the Administrative Agent in writing promptly (and in all events on the same day as such telephone communication). Each Syndicated Loan Borrowing Request shall be irrevocable, shall be signed by the Parent (on its own behalf or on behalf of the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower), shall refer to this Agreement and shall specify the following information: (a) that such Request relates to Syndicated Loans and not a Swingline Loan; (b) whether the Borrowing then being requested is to be a LIBOR Borrowing or an ABR Borrowing; (c) the date of such Borrowing (which shall be a Business Day); (d) the number and location of the account to which funds are to be disbursed (which shall be an account that complies with the requirements of Section 2.2(c)); (e) the amount of such Borrowing (which shall be expressed in dollars, regardless of whether such Borrowing is a Foreign Currency Borrowing); (f) whether such Borrowing is to be a Borrowing denominated in dollars or in a Foreign Currency (and, if a Foreign Currency, identifying the Foreign Currency); (g) if such Borrowing is to be a LIBOR Borrowing, the Interest Period or Periods with respect thereto; and (h) the identity of the applicable Borrower of such Borrowing; provided, however, that notwithstanding any contrary specification in any Syndicated Loan Borrowing Request, each requested Borrowing of Syndicated Loans shall comply with the requirements set forth in Section 2.2. If no election (or an incomplete election) as to the Type of Borrowing is specified in any such notice, then the requested Borrowing shall be an ABR Borrowing if such Borrowing is denominated in dollars. If no Interest Period with respect to any LIBOR Borrowing is specified in any such notice, then the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month's duration. The Administrative Agent shall promptly advise the Lenders of any notice given pursuant to this
Section (and the contents thereof), and of each Lender's portion of the requested Borrowing, and (in the case of a Foreign Currency Borrowing) of the particular Foreign Currency in which it is to be denominated and the Foreign Currency Equivalent of the specified dollar amount of such Borrowing and the Exchange Rate utilized to determine such Foreign Currency Equivalent.

Section 2.4. Swingline Loans. (a) Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Swingline Bank agrees to make Swingline Loans to the Parent, from time to time during the Availability Period, in dollars, in an aggregate principal amount at any time outstanding that will not result in:

18

(i) the aggregate principal amount of Swingline Loans being in excess of $10,000,000, or

(ii) the Aggregate Credit Exposure exceeding the Total Revolving Credit Commitment;

provided, however, that the Swingline Bank shall not be required to make a Swingline Loan to refinance an outstanding Swingline Loan. Within such limits, and subject to the terms, conditions and limitations set forth herein, the Parent may borrow, pay or prepay and reborrow Swingline Loans from the Swingline Bank.

(b) The Swingline Loans shall be made in dollars and maintained as ABR Loans.

(c) Each Borrowing of a Swingline Loan shall be in an amount not less than $1,000,000 and shall be in integral multiples of $250,000.

(d) In order to request a Borrowing of a Swingline Loan, the Parent shall hand deliver or telecopy to the Administrative Agent a duly completed Swingline Loan Borrowing Request not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on the Business Day on which the proposed Borrowing is to be made. Notwithstanding the immediately preceding sentence, the Administrative Agent agrees that it will (subject to the Authorization Letter) accept from the Parent a Swingline Loan Borrowing Request by telephone by the applicable date and time specified in the immediately preceding sentence, provided that the same is confirmed by the Parent to the Administrative Agent in writing promptly (and in all events on the same day as such telephone communication). Each Swingline Loan Borrowing Request shall be irrevocable, shall be signed on behalf of the Parent, shall refer to this Agreement and shall state (i) that the requested Borrowing is to be of a Swingline Loan, (ii) the amount of such Borrowing and (iii) the date of such Borrowing (which is to be a Business Day). The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Swingline Bank of such Swingline Loan Borrowing Request. On the date so specified, the Swingline Bank shall make available the amount of the Swingline Loan to be made by it on such date to the Administrative Agent, in immediately available funds, at an account designated and maintained by the Administrative Agent. The amount so received by the Administrative Agent shall, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, be made available to the Parent by depositing the same in an account of the Parent maintained at the Administrative Agent.

Section 2.5. Participations by All Lenders in Swingline Loans. The Swingline Bank may by written notice given to the Administrative Agent not later than 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on any Business Day require the Lenders to acquire participations on such Business Day in all or a portion of the Swingline Loans outstanding. Such notice shall specify the aggregate amount of Swingline Loans in which the Lenders will participate. Promptly upon receipt of such notice, the Administrative Agent will give notice thereof to each Lender, specifying in such notice such Lender's Pro Rata Percentage of such Swingline Loan or Loans. Each Lender hereby absolutely and unconditionally agrees, upon receipt of notice as provided above, to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Swingline Bank, such Lender's Pro Rata Percentage of such Swingline Loan or Loans. Each Lender acknowledges and agrees

19

that its obligation to acquire participations in Swingline Loans pursuant to this paragraph is absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including the occurrence and continuance of a Default or an Event of Default or reduction or termination of the Revolving Credit Commitments, and that each such payment shall be made without any offset, abatement, withholding or reduction whatsoever. Each Lender shall comply with its obligation under this paragraph by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the Administrative Agent not later than 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on the day it receives such notice (or, if such Lender shall have received such notice later than 10:00 a.m. on any Business Day, then not later than 10:00 a.m. on the following Business Day). If any Lender does not pay such amount to the Administrative Agent on the date required by the immediately preceding sentence, such Lender shall (independently of and in addition to the Parent's obligation to pay interest on such amount) pay interest on such amount, for each day from and including the date such amount is so required to be paid by such Lender to but excluding the date such amount is paid, to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swingline Bank at (i) for the first such day, the Federal Funds Effective Rate, and (ii) for each day thereafter, one percent per annum in excess of the Federal Funds Effective Rate. The Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to the Swingline Bank the amounts so received by it from the Lenders. The Administrative Agent shall notify the Parent of any participations in any Swingline Loan acquired pursuant to this paragraph. Any amounts received by the Administrative Agent from the Parent (or other party on behalf of the Parent) in respect of a Swingline Loan after receipt by the Swingline Bank of the proceeds of a sale of participations therein shall be promptly remitted by the Administrative Agent to the Lenders that shall have made their payments pursuant to this paragraph and to the Swingline Bank, as their interests may appear; provided that any such payment so remitted shall be repaid to the Administrative Agent, if and to the extent such payment is required to be refunded to the Parent for any reason. The purchase of participations in a Swingline Loan pursuant to this paragraph shall not relieve the Parent of any default in the payment thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (x) a Lender shall not have any obligation to purchase a participation in a Swingline Loan pursuant to this paragraph if an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing at the time such Swingline Loan was made and (aa) such Lender or any other Lender shall have notified the Swingline Bank in writing, at least one Business Day prior to the time such Swingline Loan was made, that such Event of Default has occurred and that such notifying Lender will not acquire participations in Swingline Loans made while such Event of Default is continuing (unless the notifying Lender shall have withdrawn such notice), or (bb) the Parent shall have notified the Swingline Bank in writing, at least one Business Day prior to the time such Swingline Loan was made, that such Event of Default has occurred; and (y) a Lender shall not have any obligation to purchase a participation pursuant to this paragraph to the extent of its Pro Rata Percentage of the aggregate amount of the excess (if any) of Swingline Loans outstanding on the day of a Borrowing of any Swingline Loan over the limitation in clause (i) or (ii) of Section 2.4(a), unless the Parent subsequently eliminates such excess.

Section 2.6. Repayment of Loans. (a) Each Borrower hereby unconditionally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender on the Maturity Date the then unpaid principal amount of each Syndicated Loan of such Lender to such Borrower in the applicable currency of such Syndicated Loan. Upon the request of any Lender at any time, such obligation of each Borrower in favor of such Lender shall be evidenced by a promissory note of such Borrower in favor of such Lender in substantially the form of Exhibit A-1 hereto (the "Syndicated Loan Note" of such Lender as to the applicable Borrower).

20

(b) The Parent hereby unconditionally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swingline Bank the unpaid principal amount of each Swingline Loan on the earlier of the Maturity Date or the first date after such Swingline Loan is made that is the 15th or last day of a calendar month and is at least two Business Days after such Swingline Loan is made; provided that on each day that a Syndicated Borrowing by the Parent is made, the Parent shall pay all Swingline Loans then outstanding. Upon the request of the Swingline Bank at any time, such obligation of the Parent in favor of the Swingline Bank shall be evidenced by a single promissory note of the Parent in favor of the Swingline Bank in the amount of $10,000,000 in substantially the form of Exhibit A-2 hereto (the "Swingline Loan Note").

(c) Each Lender and the Swingline Bank shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice an account or accounts evidencing the indebtedness of each Borrower to such Lender or the Swingline Bank (as applicable) resulting from each Loan made by such Lender or the Swingline Bank from time to time, including the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid to such Lender or the Swingline Bank from time to time under this Agreement.

(d) The Administrative Agent shall maintain accounts in which it will record (i) the amount of each Loan made hereunder, the identity of the applicable Borrower thereof, the Type thereof, the Interest Period applicable thereto, the currency in which it is made, and whether such Loan is a Syndicated Loan or a Swingline Loan, (ii) the amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from each Borrower to each Lender or the Swingline Bank hereunder and (iii) the amount of any sum received by the Administrative Agent hereunder from any Borrower or any Guarantor and each Lender's or the Swingline Bank's share thereof.

(e) The entries made in the accounts maintained pursuant to paragraphs
(c) and (d) above shall be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations therein recorded; provided, however, that the failure of any Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Administrative Agent to maintain such accounts or any error therein shall not in any manner affect the obligations of any Borrower to repay its Loans in accordance with their terms.

Section 2.7. Certain Fees. (a) The Parent agrees to pay to each Lender, through the Administrative Agent, on the last day of March, June, September and December in each year and on the date on which the Revolving Credit Commitment of such Lender shall expire or be terminated as provided herein, a commitment fee equal to the average daily unused amount of the Revolving Credit Commitment of such Lender during the preceding quarter (or other period commencing with the Closing Date or ending with the Maturity Date or the date on which the Revolving Credit Commitment of such Lender shall expire or be terminated) multiplied by the Applicable Rate for such quarter or other period (appropriately pro-rated, if the Applicable Rate changes during such quarter or other period). "Usage" of the Revolving Credit Commitment of a Lender shall include the Syndicated Loans of such Lender and such Lender's Pro Rata Percentage of the L/C Exposure, but shall exclude Swingline Loans.

(b) All commitment fees described in paragraph (a) of this Section (the "Commitment Fees") shall be computed on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed in a year of 360 days. The Commitment Fee due to each Lender shall commence to accrue on the

21

Closing Date and shall cease to accrue on the date on which the Revolving Credit Commitment of such Lender shall expire or be terminated as provided herein.

(c) The Parent agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for its own account, the fees with respect to the Administrative Agent's services hereunder payable at the times and in the amounts separately agreed upon between the Parent and the Administrative Agent (the "Administrative Agent Fees").

(d) The Commitment Fees and the Administrative Agent Fees shall be paid on the dates due in dollars and in immediately available funds to the Administrative Agent, for distribution, if and as appropriate, among the Lenders. Once paid, none of such Fees shall be refundable under any circumstances.

Section 2.8. Interest on Loans. (a) Subject to the provisions of
Section 2.9, the Loans comprising each ABR Borrowing (whether of Syndicated Loans or of a Swingline Loan) shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the Alternate Base Rate. Such interest shall be computed on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed, over (if such interest is determined on the basis of the Prime Rate) a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, or (if such interest is determined on the basis of the Federal Funds Effective Rate) a year of 360 days.

(b) Subject to the provisions of Section 2.9, the Loans comprising each LIBOR Borrowing of Syndicated Loans shall bear interest (computed on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed over a year of 360 days) at a rate per annum equal to the Adjusted LIBO Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing plus the Applicable Rate in effect from time to time.

(c) Interest on each Loan shall be payable by the Borrower of such Loan on the Interest Payment Dates applicable to such Loan except as otherwise provided in this Agreement. The applicable Alternate Base Rate or applicable Adjusted LIBO Rate for each Interest Period or day within an Interest Period, as the case may be, shall be determined by the Administrative Agent, and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

Section 2.9. Default Interest. If any Borrower shall default in the payment required to be made by it of the principal of or interest on any Loan or any other amount becoming due under this Agreement (the "Defaulted Amount"), at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise, or under any other Facility Document, then each Borrower shall on demand from time to time pay interest, to the extent permitted by law, on its Loans then or thereafter outstanding (irrespective of whether or not such Loans are due) and on all other amounts then or thereafter due from it under this Agreement, to but excluding the date of actual payment (after as well as before judgment) of the Defaulted Amount, at a rate (the "Default Rate") equal to (a) in the case of overdue principal of each outstanding Loan, the rate otherwise applicable to such Loan pursuant to
Section 2.8 plus 2.0% per annum and (b) in all other cases, the Alternate Base Rate plus 2.0% per annum.

Section 2.10. Termination and Reduction of Commitments. (a) The Revolving Credit Commitments and the L/C Commitment shall automatically expire and terminate on the Maturity Date.

22

(b) Upon at least three Business Days' prior irrevocable written or telecopy notice to the Administrative Agent, the Parent may at any time in whole permanently terminate, or from time to time in part permanently reduce, the Revolving Credit Commitments; provided, however, that (i) each partial reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitments shall be an integral multiple of $1,000,000 and in a minimum amount of $5,000,000 and (ii) the Total Revolving Credit Commitment shall not be reduced to an amount that is less than the Aggregate Credit Exposure at the time (after giving effect to any concurrent prepayment of Loans). If the Administrative Agent receives such a notice from the Parent, the Administrative Agent shall promptly advise the Lenders thereof.

(c) If proceeds of the sale(s) of assets by the Parent or any of its Subsidiaries are applied to the complete or partial retirement of the Prudential Existing Notes or any Future Permitted Private Placement Debt (whether by prepayment or reacquisition by the Parent or such Subsidiary or otherwise), each Lender's Revolving Credit Commitment shall be reduced by the percentage equivalent of a fraction whose numerator is the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Prudential Existing Notes and the Future Permitted Private Placement Debt so retired and whose denominator is the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Prudential Existing Notes and the Future Permitted Private Placement Debt immediately prior to such retirement. The Parent shall give the Administrative Agent and the Lenders at least seven days' prior written notice of any complete or partial retirement of the Prudential Existing Notes or the Future Permitted Private Placement Debt out of proceeds of any such sale(s) of assets.

(d) Each reduction in the Revolving Credit Commitments hereunder shall be made ratably among the Lenders in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit Commitments. The Parent shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Lenders, on the date of each termination or reduction, the Commitment Fees on the amount of the Revolving Credit Commitments so terminated or reduced accrued to but excluding the date of such termination or reduction.

Section 2.11. Conversion and Continuation of Borrowings. (a) The Parent (on its own behalf, in the case of a Borrowing denominated in dollars; or on behalf of the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower, in the case of a Borrowing denominated in a Foreign Currency) or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower (in the case of a Borrowing denominated in a Foreign Currency) shall have the right at any time upon prior irrevocable notice to the Administrative Agent (x) not later than 12:00 (noon), New York City time, one Business Day prior to conversion, to convert any LIBOR Borrowing in dollars into an ABR Borrowing, (y) not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time (or 11:00
a.m., London time, if a Borrowing is being continued as or converted to a Borrowing denominated in a Foreign Currency), three Business Days prior to conversion or continuation, to convert any ABR Borrowing of Syndicated Loans into a LIBOR Borrowing in dollars or to continue any LIBOR Borrowing as a LIBOR Borrowing in the same currency for an additional Interest Period or Periods, and
(z) not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time (or 11:00 a.m., London time, if such Borrowing is denominated in a Foreign Currency), three Business Days prior to conversion, to convert the Interest Period with respect to any LIBOR Borrowing to another permissible Interest Period, subject in each case to the following:

23

(i) each conversion or continuation shall be made pro rata among the Lenders in accordance with the respective principal amounts of the Loans comprising the converted or continued Borrowing;

(ii) if less than all the outstanding principal amount of any Borrowing shall be converted or continued, then each resulting Borrowing shall satisfy the limitations specified in Sections 2.2(a) and 2.2(b) regarding the principal amount and maximum number of Borrowings of the relevant Type;

(iii) each conversion shall be effected by each Lender and the Administrative Agent by recording for the account of such Lender the new Loan of such Lender resulting from such conversion and reducing the Loan (or portion thereof) of such Lender being converted by an equivalent principal amount; accrued interest on any LIBOR Loan (or portion thereof) being converted shall be paid by the applicable Borrower at the time of conversion;

(iv) if any LIBOR Borrowing is converted at a time other than the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, the applicable Borrower shall pay, upon demand, any amounts due the Lenders pursuant to Section 4.4;

(v) no ABR Borrowing may be converted into a LIBOR Borrowing during the one-month period prior to the Maturity Date; and no LIBOR Borrowing whose Interest Period ends during the one-month period prior to the Maturity Date may be continued as a LIBOR Borrowing for an additional Interest Period; and

(vi) any portion of a LIBOR Borrowing that cannot be continued as a LIBOR Borrowing by reason of the immediately preceding clause shall at the end of the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing be automatically converted into an ABR Borrowing (if such LIBOR Borrowing is denominated in dollars) or repaid by the applicable Borrower (if such LIBOR Borrowing is denominated in a Foreign Currency).

Each notice pursuant to this Section shall be irrevocable and shall refer to this Agreement and specify (i) the identity of the Borrower of the applicable Borrowing and the amount of the Borrowing that is requested to be converted or continued, (ii) whether such Borrowing is to be converted to or continued as a LIBOR Borrowing or an ABR Borrowing, (iii) if such notice requests a conversion, the date of such conversion (which shall be a Business Day), and (iv) if such Borrowing is to be converted to or continued as a LIBOR Borrowing, the Interest Period with respect thereto. No such notice shall be given more than seven Business Days prior to the effective date of the applicable conversion or continuation. If no Interest Period is specified in any such notice with respect to any conversion to or continuation as a LIBOR Borrowing, the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month's duration. The Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of any notice given pursuant to this Section and of each Lender's portion of any converted or continued Borrowing. If notice shall not have been given in accordance with this Section to continue any LIBOR Borrowing of Syndicated Loans into a subsequent Interest Period or (in the case of the Borrowing denominated in dollars) to convert such Borrowing to an ABR Borrowing, such

24

Borrowing at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto shall automatically be converted to an ABR Borrowing (if such Borrowing is denominated in dollars) or shall be repaid (if such Borrowing is denominated in a Foreign Currency).

(b) Notwithstanding any contrary provision contained in this Agreement, upon notice to the Parent from the Administrative Agent given at the request of the Required Lenders, after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, (i) no outstanding Loan denominated in dollars may be converted into, or continued as, a LIBOR Loan, and (ii) each LIBOR Borrowing (unless such Borrowing is paid at or before the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto) shall at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto (if such Borrowing is denominated in dollars) be converted to an ABR Borrowing or (if such Borrowing is denominated in a Foreign Currency) be continued as a LIBOR Borrowing with an Interest Period of one month's duration in the same currency, subject to paragraph (c) of this Section.

(c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if an Event of Default described in paragraph (e) of Section 10.1 occurs (other than clause (i) thereof), or if the maturity of the Loans is accelerated pursuant to Article 10, all Loans denominated in a Foreign Currency shall on the date of such occurrence or acceleration be converted into, and all amounts due thereunder shall accrue and be payable in, dollars at the current Exchange Rate on such date, and on and after such date the interest rate applicable thereto shall be the rate applicable to overdue ABR Loans.

(d) A Swingline Loan may not be converted into a LIBOR Loan.

Section 2.12. Optional Prepayment. (a) Each Borrower shall have the right at any time and from time to time to prepay any Borrowing, in whole or in part, upon at least three Business Days' (in the case of LIBOR Borrowings) or one Business Day's (in the case of ABR Borrowings of Syndicated Loans) prior written or telecopy notice to the Administrative Agent before 11:00 a.m., New York City time (or 11:00 a.m., London time, if such Borrowing is denominated in a Foreign Currency), or (in the case of a Borrowing of a Swingline Loan) upon such notice to the Administrative Agent before 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on the day of such prepayment; provided, however, that each partial prepayment shall be in an amount that is an integral multiple of $500,000 (in the case of a Borrowing denominated in dollars) and not less than $1,000,000 (or the Foreign Currency Equivalent of $1,000,000, if such Borrowing is denominated in a Foreign Currency). Notwithstanding the immediately preceding sentence, the Administrative Agent agrees that it will (subject to the Authorization Letter) accept from the Parent notice by telephone of prepayment by the dates and time specified in the immediately preceding sentence, provided that the same is confirmed by the Parent to the Administrative Agent in writing promptly (and in all events on the same day as such telephone communication).

(b) Each notice of prepayment shall specify the identity of the Borrower, the prepayment date and the principal amount of each Borrowing (or portion thereof) to be prepaid, shall be irrevocable and shall commit the applicable Borrower to prepay such Borrowing by the amount stated therein on the date stated therein. All prepayments under this Section shall be subject to
Section 4.4 but otherwise without premium or penalty. All prepayments under this

25

Section shall be accompanied by accrued interest on the principal amount being prepaid to the date of payment.

Section 2.13. Mandatory Prepayments. (a) In the event of any termination of all the Revolving Credit Commitments, each Borrower shall on the date of such termination repay or prepay all its outstanding Borrowings of Syndicated Loans and Swingline Loans and (if any L/C Exposure exists) the Parent shall remit to the Administrative Agent for deposit in the Cash Collateral Account cash in an amount equal to the L/C Exposure to secure the payment when due of the reimbursement obligation of the Parent in respect of the aggregate undrawn face amount of Letters of Credit.

(b) In the event of any partial reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitments, then (x) at or prior to the effective date of such reduction, the Administrative Agent shall notify the Parent and the Lenders of the Aggregate Credit Exposure after giving effect thereto and (y) if the Aggregate Credit Exposure would exceed the Total Revolving Credit Commitment after giving effect to such reduction, then on the date of such reduction one or more Borrowers shall prepay its or their respective Borrowings in an amount sufficient to eliminate such excess, and (if the prepayment of Borrowings is not sufficient to eliminate such excess) the Parent shall remit to the Administrative Agent for deposit in the Cash Collateral Account cash in the remaining amount of such excess to secure the payment when due of the reimbursement obligation of the Parent in respect of the aggregate undrawn face amount of Letters of Credit. Without limiting the generality of the reductions referred to in this paragraph of the Revolving Credit Commitments, such reductions shall include reductions referred to in Section 2.10(c).

(c) In addition, if as of the last Business Day of each calendar month the Dollar Equivalent (computed by the Administrative Agent using the current Exchange Rate as of such Business Day and promptly notified to the Lenders and the Parent (on behalf of itself and the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers)) of the aggregate outstanding principal balance of Foreign Currency Loans shall exceed 110% of the Foreign Currency Sublimit Dollar Amount, one or more Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers shall, within five Business Days after the Parent's receipt of such notice, prepay Foreign Currency Loans in an amount sufficient so as to reduce the Dollar Equivalent of the aggregate outstanding principal balance of Foreign Currency Loans to an amount that is equal to or less than the Foreign Currency Sublimit Dollar Amount.

(d) All prepayments of Borrowings under this Section shall be subject to Section 4.4, but shall otherwise be without premium or penalty.

(e) Amounts to be applied pursuant to this Section to the prepayment by the Parent of Swingline Loans and/or Syndicated Loans shall be applied, as applicable, first to reduce outstanding Swingline Loans, then to reduce outstanding Syndicated Loans that are ABR Loans. Any amounts remaining after each such application shall be applied to prepay LIBOR Loans of the Parent immediately and/or, if elected by the Parent so long as no Event of Default exists, be deposited in the Cash Collateral Account; and any amount to be remitted by the Parent pursuant to paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section in respect of Letters of Credit shall be deposited in the Cash Collateral Account. In the case of such an immediate prepayment of LIBOR Loans of the Parent, the Parent shall (unless an Event of Default exists) be entitled to designate which LIBOR Borrowings of the Parent are to be prepaid, by giving written notice of such designation

26

to the Administrative Agent at or before the remittance to the Administrative Agent of the amounts to be applied in prepayment. Amounts to be applied pursuant to this Section to the prepayment by a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower of Syndicated Loans shall be applied to prepay LIBOR Loans of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower immediately and/or, if elected by the Parent (on behalf of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) or such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower so long as no Event of Default exists, be deposited in the Cash Collateral Account. In the case of such an immediate prepayment by a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower of LIBOR Loans of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower, the Parent (on behalf of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) or such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall (unless an Event of Default exists) be entitled to designate which LIBOR Borrowings of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower are to be prepaid, by giving written notice of such designation to the Administrative Agent at or before the remittance to the Administrative Agent of the amounts to be applied in prepayment.

(f) The Administrative Agent shall apply any cash deposited in the Cash Collateral Account (i) in respect of LIBOR Loans of the Parent, to prepay LIBOR Loans of the Parent on the last day of their respective Interest Periods (or, at the direction of the Parent, on any earlier date) until all such outstanding Loans have been prepaid or until all the allocable cash on deposit with respect to such Loans has been exhausted; (ii) in respect of L/C Exposure, to pay as and when the same becomes due the reimbursement obligation of the Parent in respect of Letters of Credit; and (iii) in respect of LIBOR Loans of a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower, to prepay LIBOR Loans of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower on the last day of their respective Interest Periods (or, at the direction of the Parent on behalf of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower, on any earlier date) until all such outstanding Loans of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower have been prepaid or until all the allocable cash on deposit with respect to such Loans has been exhausted. If any Letter of Credit so secured by such cash collateral expires without being drawn (or, if drawn, whose reimbursement is paid by the Parent with funds other than such cash collateral), the Administrative Agent shall remit to the Parent such cash collateral securing such Letter of Credit promptly after a request by the Parent therefor, provided that no Default or Event of Default exists. For purposes of this Agreement, the term "Cash Collateral Account" shall mean an account established by the Parent
(on its own behalf or on behalf of the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) with the Administrative Agent and over which the Administrative Agent shall have exclusive dominion and control, including the exclusive right of withdrawal for application in accordance with this paragraph. The Administrative Agent will, at the request of the Parent (on its own behalf or on behalf of the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower), invest amounts on deposit in the Cash Collateral Account in Permitted Investments; provided, however, that (i) the Administrative Agent shall not be required to make any investment that, in its sole judgment, would require or cause the Administrative Agent to be in, or would result in any, violation of any law, statute, rule or regulation, and (ii) the Administrative Agent shall have no obligation to invest amounts on deposit in the Cash Collateral Account if an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, and (iii) as to amounts on deposit for the prepayment of LIBOR Borrowings, such Permitted Investments shall mature prior to the last day of the applicable Interest Periods of the LIBOR Borrowings to be prepaid. The Parent or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower (as the case may be) shall indemnify the Administrative Agent for any losses relating to the investments so that the amount available to prepay LIBOR Borrowings of the Parent or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower (as the case may be) on the last day of the applicable Interest Period, and (in the case of the Parent) to pay L/C Exposure as and when the same becomes due, is not less than the amount that would have been available had no

27

investments been made pursuant hereto. Other than any interest earned on such investments, the Cash Collateral Account shall not bear interest. Interest or profits, if any, on such investments shall be deposited in the Cash Collateral Account and reinvested and disbursed as specified above. If the maturity of the Loans has been accelerated pursuant to this Agreement, the Administrative Agent may, in its sole discretion, apply all amounts on deposit in the Cash Collateral Account to satisfy any of the amounts due under this Agreement or any other Facility Document, except that amounts deposited in the Cash Collateral Account by a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower in respect of LIBOR Loans of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall not be applied to the Loans or other amounts owing under this Agreement by the other Foreign Subsidiary Borrower or to the Loans or other amounts owing under this Agreement by the Parent. Each Borrower hereby grants to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Administrative Agent, the Swingline Bank, the Issuing Bank and the Lenders, a security interest in the Cash Collateral Account to secure all amounts due from such Borrower under this Agreement and (in the case of the Parent) due from the Parent under the Parent Guarantee.

Section 2.14. Payments. (a) Each Borrower shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder and under any Facility Document (whether of principal, interest, fees, reimbursement of L/C Disbursements or otherwise) not later than 12:00 noon, local time at the place of payment, on the date when due in immediately available funds, without setoff, defense or counterclaim. Any amounts received after such time on any date may, in the reasonable discretion of the Administrative Agent, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. Each such payment (other than Issuing Bank Fees, which shall be paid directly to the Issuing Bank) shall be made to the Administrative Agent at its offices at 270 Park Avenue, New York, New York (or as otherwise instructed by the Administrative Agent, in the case of amounts payable in a Foreign Currency) or to such other address as the Administrative Agent may designate to the Parent in writing. Each such payment shall be made in dollars, except that (subject to
Section 2.11(c)) (i) all principal of and interest on each Loan denominated in a Foreign Currency shall be made in such Foreign Currency and (ii) any amounts payable in respect of reimbursement of expenses or indemnification incurred in a currency other than dollars shall be paid in such currency unless otherwise agreed by the relevant parties. The Administrative Agent, or any Lender for whose account any such payment is to be made, may (but shall not be obligated to) debit the amount of any such payment which is not made by such time to any ordinary deposit account of the Parent or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower with the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, and any Lender so doing shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent; such Lender or (if the Administrative Agent effects such debit) the Administrative Agent shall promptly after effecting such debit give notice thereof to the Parent (on behalf of itself or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) as well, provided, however, that a failure to give such notice to the Parent or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall not affect the validity of such debit or place such Lender or the Administrative Agent under any liability to the Parent or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower. Each Borrower (or the Parent on behalf of the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) shall, at the time of making each payment under this Agreement or the Notes, specify to the Administrative Agent the principal or other amount payable by the applicable Borrower under this Agreement or the Notes to which such payment is to be applied (and in the event that it fails to so specify, or if a Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing), the Administrative Agent may apply such payment as it may elect in its sole discretion (subject to Section 11.16)).

28

(b) Whenever any payment (including principal of or interest on any Borrowing or any Fees or other amounts) hereunder or under any other Facility Document shall become due, or otherwise would occur, on a day that is not a Business Day, such payment may, except as otherwise provided in the definition of Interest Period, be made on the next succeeding Business Day, and such extension of time shall in such case be included in the computation of interest or Fees, if applicable.

Section 2.15. Purpose. Each Borrower shall use the proceeds of the Loans borrowed by it for working capital and general corporate purposes. Such proceeds shall not be used for the purpose, whether immediate, incidental or ultimate, of buying or carrying "margin stock" within the meaning of Regulation U in contravention of Regulation U.

Section 2.16. Increase of Total Revolving Credit Commitment. The Parent may from time to time elect to increase the Total Revolving Credit Commitment, provided that (i) each such increase is not less than $5,000,000 and
(ii) after giving effect to each increase that becomes effective, the aggregate amount of increases of the Total Revolving Credit Commitment under this Section does not exceed $50,000,000. The Parent may arrange for any such increase to be provided by (a) one or more then-existing Lenders agreeing (in the sole discretion of such Lenders) to an increase in their own respective Revolving Credit Commitments (each Lender so agreeing to an increase in its Revolving Credit Commitment being called herein an "Increasing Lender") and/or (b) one or more banks, financial institutions or other entities becoming party to this Agreement as Lenders and providing Revolving Credit Commitments (each such bank, financial institution or other entity being called an "Augmenting Lender"), provided that (x) each Augmenting Lender shall be subject to the approval of the Parent, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank and the Swingline Bank (such approval, in each case, not to be unreasonably withheld) and (y) the Borrowers and the relevant Increasing Lenders and Augmenting Lenders shall execute and deliver all such documentation as the Administrative Agent shall reasonably request (in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent) solely to evidence (in the case of an Increasing Lender) the increased Revolving Credit Commitment of such Increasing Lender or (in the case of an Augmenting Lender) the status of the Augmenting Lender as a Lender and its new Revolving Credit Commitment (which documentation, including an amendment to this Agreement, shall not be required to be executed by any Lender other than such Increasing Lender(s) and/or Augmenting Lender(s) as applicable). Increases in Revolving Credit Commitments and new Revolving Credit Commitments shall become effective on the date agreed by the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and (as applicable) the Increasing Lenders and Augmenting Lenders, and the Administrative Agent shall notify the other Lenders thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no increase in the Total Revolving Credit Commitment shall become effective pursuant to this Section unless (aa) on the proposed date of the effectiveness of such increase, the conditions set forth in paragraphs (a) and
(b) of Section 5.2 are satisfied as of such date (and the Administrative Agent shall have received a certificate to that effect dated such date executed by the Borrowers) as if such increase were an extension of credit hereunder and (bb) the Administrative Agent shall have received documents consistent with those delivered on the Closing Date under paragraphs (d), (e) and (f) of Section 5.1 as to the corporate power and authority of each Borrower to borrow and otherwise obtain extensions of credit hereunder after giving effect to such increase. Each increase in the Total Revolving Credit Commitment that becomes effective shall automatically effectuate an increase in the Foreign Currency Sublimit

29

Dollar Amount by an amount equal to one-half of such increase in the Total Revolving Credit Commitment. On the effective date of each such increase in the Total Revolving Credit Commitment, each Borrower shall make such Borrowings and repayments as shall, in the determination of the Administrative Agent, be necessary to effect the reallocation of Pro Rata Percentages in outstanding Syndicated Loans to each Borrower that is represented by the increase and/or addition of Revolving Credit Commitments pursuant to this Section, and such repayments shall be subject to indemnification by the applicable Borrower pursuant to Section 4.4 if any repayment occurs on a day other than the last day of the applicable Interest Period.

ARTICLE 3. LETTERS OF CREDIT

Section 3.1. Letters of Credit. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Parent may request, and the Issuing Bank shall issue, one or more standby or commercial letters of credit (each a "Letter of Credit") denominated in dollars, for the account of the Parent or any Foreign Subsidiary Borrower, in form acceptable to the Issuing Bank, from time to time during the Availability Period, provided that, after giving effect to the issuance thereof:

(a) the L/C Exposure shall not exceed $15,000,000, and

(b) the Aggregate Credit Exposure shall not exceed the Total Revolving Credit Commitment.

Section 3.2 Notice of Issuance, Amendment, Renewal, Extension; Certain Conditions. In order to request the issuance of a Letter of Credit (or to amend, renew or extend an existing Letter of Credit), the Parent (on its own behalf or on behalf of the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) shall hand deliver or telecopy to the Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent (not later than two Business Days in advance of the requested date of issuance, amendment, renewal or extension) a notice requesting the issuance of a Letter of Credit (together with, if requested by the Issuing Bank, a completed Letter of Credit application in the Issuing Bank's then standard form), or identifying the Letter of Credit to be amended, renewed or extended, the date of issuance, amendment, renewal or extension, the date on which such Letter of Credit is to expire (which shall comply with Section 3.3), the amount of such Letter of Credit, the name and address of the beneficiary thereof, the account party thereof and such other information as shall be necessary to prepare such Letter of Credit. Notwithstanding the immediately preceding sentence, the Issuing Bank and the Administrative Agent agree that they will (subject to the Authorization Letter) accept from the Parent such notice by telephone by the date that is two Business Days in advance as aforesaid, provided that such notice is confirmed in writing promptly (and in all events on the same day as such telephone communication) and that (in the case of a requested issuance of a Letter of Credit) such confirmation is accompanied by such completed Letter of Credit application form. In the event of any inconsistency between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the terms and conditions of any form of letter of credit application or other agreement submitted by the Parent (on its own behalf or on behalf of the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) to, or entered into by the Parent with, the Issuing Bank relating to any Letter of Credit, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall control.

30

Section 3.3. Minimum Amount; Expiration Date. (a) The stated amount of each Letter of Credit shall not be less than $1,000,000 or such lesser amount as is acceptable to the Issuing Bank.

(b) Each Letter of Credit shall expire by its terms not later than the earlier of (A)(i) in the case of a commercial Letter of Credit, 180 days after the issuance thereof (unless the Issuing Bank agrees to a more extended expiry date) or (ii) in the case of a standby Letter of Credit, one year after the date of issuance thereof (subject to an "evergreen" provision, if and to the extent acceptable to the Issuing Bank); or (B) the day that is five Business Days before the Maturity Date.

Section 3.4. Participations. By the issuance of each Letter of Credit (or an amendment to a Letter of Credit increasing the amount thereof) and without any further action on the part of the Issuing Bank or the Lenders, the Issuing Bank hereby grants to each Lender, and each Lender hereby acquires from the Issuing Bank, a participation in such Letter of Credit equal to such Lender's Pro Rata Percentage of the aggregate amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit, effective upon the issuance of such Letter of Credit. In consideration and in furtherance of the foregoing, each Lender hereby absolutely and unconditionally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Issuing Bank, as provided in Section 3.5, such Lender's Pro Rata Percentage of each L/C Disbursement made by the Issuing Bank and not reimbursed by the applicable Borrower forthwith on the date due as provided in Section 3.5, or of any reimbursement payment required to be refunded to such Borrower for any reason. Each Lender acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to acquire participations pursuant to this paragraph in respect of Letters of Credit is absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including any amendment, renewal or extension of a Letter of Credit, or the occurrence and continuance of a Default or an Event of Default, or a reduction or termination of the Revolving Credit Commitments, and that each such payment shall be made without any offset, abatement, withholding or reduction whatsoever. The Administrative Agent and the Issuing Bank shall be entitled to offset amounts received for the account of a Lender under this Agreement or any of the other Facility Documents against unpaid amounts due from such Lender to the Administrative Agent or the Issuing Bank hereunder.

Section 3.5. Reimbursement. If the Issuing Bank shall make any L/C Disbursement in respect of a Letter of Credit, the applicable Borrower shall reimburse such L/C Disbursement by paying to the Administrative Agent an amount equal to such L/C Disbursement not later than 12:00 noon, New York City time, on the date that such L/C Disbursement is made, if such Borrower shall have received notice of such L/C Disbursement prior to 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on such date, or, if such notice has not been received by such Borrower prior to such time on such date, then not later than 12:00 noon, New York City time, on (i) the Business Day that such Borrower receives such notice, if such notice is received prior to 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on the day of receipt, or (ii) the Business Day immediately following the day that such Borrower receives such notice, if such notice is not received prior to such time on the day of receipt; provided that, if such L/C Disbursement is not less than $1,000,000, such Borrower may, subject to the conditions to borrowing set forth herein, request in accordance with Section 2.3 or 2.4 that such payment be financed with a Syndicated Borrowing of ABR Loans or a Swingline Loan in an equivalent amount and, to the extent so financed, such Borrower's obligation to make such payment shall be deemed reimbursed, discharged and replaced by the

31

resulting Syndicated Borrowing of ABR Loans or such Swingline Loan. If such Borrower fails to make such payment when due, the Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender of the applicable L/C Disbursement, the payment then due from such Borrower in respect thereof and such Lender's Pro Rata Percentage thereof. Upon its receipt of such notice, each Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent such Lender's Pro Rata Percentage of the payment then due from such Borrower, in immediately available funds not later than 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on the day such Lender receives such notice (or if such Lender shall have received such notice later than 12:00 noon, then not later than 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on the next succeeding Business Day). If any Lender does not pay to the Administrative Agent the amount of such Lender's Pro Rata Percentage of the payment then due from the applicable Borrower as required by the immediately preceding sentence, such Lender shall (independently of and in addition to such Borrower's obligation to pay interest on such amount) pay interest on such amount, for each day from and including the date such amount is so required to be paid by such Lender to but excluding the date such amount is paid, to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank at (i) for the first such day, the Federal Funds Effective Rate, and (ii) for each day thereafter one percent per annum in excess of the Federal Funds Effective Rate. The Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to the Issuing Bank the amounts so received by it from the Lenders. Promptly following receipt by the Administrative Agent of any payment from the applicable Borrower pursuant to this Section, the Administrative Agent shall distribute such payment to the Issuing Bank or, to the extent that Lenders have made payments pursuant to this paragraph to reimburse the Issuing Bank, then to such Lenders and the Issuing Bank as their interests may appear. Any payment made by a Lender pursuant to this paragraph to reimburse the Issuing Bank for any L/C Disbursement (other than the funding of ABR Syndicated Loans or a Swingline Loan as contemplated above) shall not constitute a Loan and shall not relieve the Parent of its obligation to reimburse such L/C Disbursement. Notwithstanding anything in this Article 3 to the contrary, the maximum amount that any Lender shall be required to fund in respect of any L/C Disbursement, whether pursuant to Section 3.4 or this Section or as an ABR Loan pursuant to this Section, shall not exceed such Lender's Pro Rata Percentage of such L/C Disbursement.

Section 3.6. Obligations Absolute. Each Borrower's obligation to reimburse L/C Disbursements as provided in Section 3.5 shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be performed strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, under any and all circumstances whatsoever, and irrespective of:

(i) any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit or any Facility Document, or any term or provision therein;

(ii) any amendment or waiver of or any consent to departure from all or any of the provisions of any Letter of Credit or any Facility Document;

(iii) the existence of any claim, setoff, defense or other right that such Borrower, any other party guaranteeing, or otherwise obligated with, such Borrower, any Subsidiary or other Affiliate thereof or any other person may at any time have against the beneficiary under any Letter of Credit, the Issuing Bank, the Administrative Agent or any Lender or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, any other Facility Document or any other related or unrelated agreement or transaction;

32

(iv) any draft or other document presented under a Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect;

(v) payment by the Issuing Bank under a Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or other document that does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit, provided that such draft and other documents substantially comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit; and

(vi) any other act or omission to act or delay of any kind of the Issuing Bank, the Lenders, the Administrative Agent or any other Person or any other event or circumstances whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, that might, but for the provisions of this Section, constitute a legal or equitable discharge of such Borrower's obligations hereunder.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, it is expressly understood and agreed that the absolute and unconditional obligation of each Borrower hereunder to reimburse L/C Disbursements will not be excused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Issuing Bank. However, the foregoing shall not be construed to excuse the Issuing Bank from liability to each Borrower to the extent of any direct damages (as opposed to consequential damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by such Borrower to the extent permitted by applicable law) suffered by such Borrower that are caused by the Issuing Bank's gross negligence or willful misconduct in determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof; it is understood that the Issuing Bank may accept documents that appear on their face to be in order, without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary and, in making any payment under any Letter of Credit (i) the Issuing Bank's exclusive reliance on the documents presented to it under such Letter of Credit as to any and all matters set forth therein, including reliance on the amount of any draft presented under such Letter of Credit, whether or not the amount due to the beneficiary thereunder equals the amount of such draft and whether or not any document presented pursuant to such Letter of Credit proves to be insufficient in any respect, if such document on its face appears to be in order, and whether or not any other statement or any other document presented pursuant to such Letter of Credit proves to be forged or invalid or any statement therein proves to be inaccurate or untrue in any respect whatsoever and (ii) any noncompliance in any immaterial respect of the documents presented under such Letter of Credit with the terms thereof shall, in each case, be deemed not to constitute willful misconduct or gross negligence of the Issuing Bank.

Section 3.7. Disbursement Procedures. The Issuing Bank shall, promptly following its receipt thereof, examine all documents purporting to represent a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit. The Issuing Bank shall as promptly as possible give telephonic notification, confirmed by telecopy, to the Administrative Agent and the applicable Borrower of such demand for payment and whether the Issuing Bank has made or will make an L/C Disbursement thereunder; provided that any failure to give or delay in giving such notice shall not relieve such Borrower of its obligation to reimburse the Issuing Bank and the Lenders with respect to any such L/C Disbursement. The Administrative Agent shall promptly give each Lender notice thereof.

33

Section 3.8. Interim Interest. If the Issuing Bank shall make any L/C Disbursement in respect of a Letter of Credit, then, unless the applicable Borrower shall reimburse such L/C Disbursement in full on the date on which such L/C Disbursement is made, the unpaid amount thereof shall bear interest, for each day from and including the date of such L/C Disbursement to but excluding the date that such Borrower reimburses such L/C Disbursement, at the rate per annum that would apply to such amount if such amount were an ABR Loan. Interest accrued pursuant to this Section shall be for the account of the Issuing Bank, except that interest accrued on and after the date of payment by any Lender pursuant to Section 3.4 or 3.5 to reimburse the Issuing Bank shall be for the account of such Lender to the extent of such payment.

Section 3.9. Letter of Credit Fees. Each Borrower agrees to pay (i) to each Lender, through the Administrative Agent, on the last day of March, June, September and December of each year and on the date on which the Revolving Credit Commitment of such Lender shall be terminated as provided herein, a fee (an "L/C Participation Fee") calculated on such Lender's Pro Rata Percentage of the average daily aggregate L/C Exposure (excluding the portion thereof attributable to unreimbursed L/C Disbursements) during the preceding quarter (or shorter period commencing with the date hereof, or ending with the Maturity Date or the date on which all Letters of Credit have been canceled or have expired and the Revolving Credit Commitments of all Lenders have been terminated) at a rate equal to (in the case of standby Letters of Credit) the same Applicable Rate used to determine the interest rate applicable to LIBOR Loans and (in the case of commercial Letters of Credit) 0.20% per annum, and (ii) to the Issuing Bank with respect to each Letter of Credit, a facing fee at a rate equal to 0.0625% per annum in respect of each standby Letter of Credit (payable at the same times that the L/C Participation Fee is payable) plus, in the case of any Letter of Credit, the standard issuance and drawing fees specified from time to time by the Issuing Bank (the "Issuing Bank Fees"). All L/C Participation Fees and Issuing Bank Fees shall be computed on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed in a year of 360 days. The L/C Participation Fee and the Issuing Bank Fees shall be paid on the dates due in immediately available funds, (in the case of the L/C Participation Fee) to the Administrative Agent for distribution as appropriate among the Lenders and (in the case of the Issuing Bank Fees) directly to the Issuing Bank.

Section 3.10. Resignation of the Issuing Bank. The Issuing Bank may resign at any time by giving 180 days' prior written notice to the Administrative Agent, the Lenders and the Parent. The Parent shall have the right to appoint any Lender as successor Issuing Bank, subject to the consent of the Required Lenders including the appointed Lender (which consent of the appointed Lender shall be in such Lender's sole discretion, and which consent of the other Required Lenders shall not be unreasonably withheld). Upon the acceptance of any appointment as the Issuing Bank hereunder by a Lender that shall agree to serve as successor Issuing Bank, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all the interests, rights and obligations of the retiring Issuing Bank (except to the extent provided for in the last sentence of this Section) and the retiring Issuing Bank shall be discharged from its obligations to issue additional Letters of Credit hereunder. At the time such resignation shall become effective, each Borrower shall pay to such retiring Issuing Bank all accrued and unpaid Issuing Bank Fees on the Letters of Credit issued for such Borrower's account. The acceptance of any appointment as the Issuing Bank hereunder by a successor Lender shall be evidenced by an agreement entered into by such successor, in a form satisfactory to the Parent and the Administrative Agent, and from and after

34

the effective date of such agreement (i) such successor Lender shall have all the rights and obligations of the previous Issuing Bank under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and (ii) references herein and in the other Loan Documents to the term "Issuing Bank" shall be deemed to refer to such successor or to any previous Issuing Bank, or to such successor and all previous Issuing Banks, as the context shall require. After the resignation of the Issuing Bank hereunder, the retiring Issuing Bank shall remain a party hereto and shall continue to have all the rights and obligations of an Issuing Bank under this Agreement and the other Facility Documents with respect to Letters of Credit issued by it prior to such resignation, but shall not be required to issue additional Letters of Credit.

Section 3.11. Not Fiduciary. In no event shall the Issuing Bank be deemed a fiduciary of the Lenders with respect to Letters of Credit. As between the Issuing Bank (on the one hand) and the Lenders (on the other hand), the Issuing Bank shall have in connection with the Letters of Credit all the rights and protections that are afforded to the Administrative Agent in Article 11.

Section 3.12. Purpose. No Letter of Credit shall be used by any Borrower for the purpose, whether immediate, incidental or ultimate, of buying or carrying "margin stock" within the meaning of Regulation U in contravention of Regulation U.

ARTICLE 4. YIELD PROTECTION; ILLEGALITY; ETC.

Section 4.1. Alternate Rate of Interest. If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a LIBOR Borrowing denominated in any currency:

(a) the Administrative Agent determines (which determination, if made on a reasonable and nondiscriminatory basis, shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted LIBO Rate for such Borrowing for such Interest Period; or

(b) the Administrative Agent is advised by the Required Lenders that the Adjusted LIBO Rate for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of making or maintaining their Loans included in such Borrowing for such Interest Period;

then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Parent (on behalf of itself and the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers, if applicable) and the Lenders by telephone or telecopy as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Parent (on behalf of itself and the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers, if applicable) and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (i) any request to convert any Borrowing to, or to continue any Borrowing as, a LIBOR Borrowing in such currency shall be ineffective, and any LIBOR Borrowing denominated in such currency shall be repaid on the last day of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto or (at the option of the Parent, in the case of a LIBOR Borrowing denominated in dollars) shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing in accordance with this Agreement on the last day of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto, (ii) if any Syndicated Loan Borrowing Request requests a LIBOR Borrowing denominated in such currency, (x) if such currency is dollars, such Borrowing shall be made as

35

an ABR Borrowing, and (y) if such currency is not dollars, such Borrowing Request shall be ineffective.

Section 4.2. Reserve Requirement; Change in Circumstances. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if after the date of this Agreement any change in applicable law or regulation or in the interpretation or administration thereof by any Governmental Authority charged with the interpretation or administration thereof (whether or not having the force of law) shall change the basis of taxation of payments to any Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank of the principal of or interest on any LIBOR Loan made by such Lender or any Fees or other amounts payable hereunder (other than changes in respect of taxes imposed on the overall net income of such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank by the jurisdiction in which such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank has its principal office or by any political subdivision or taxing authority therein), or shall impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of or credit extended by any Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank (except only such reserve requirement which is reflected in the Adjusted LIBO Rate) or shall impose on such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank or the London interbank market (or other relevant interbank market) any other condition affecting this Agreement or LIBOR Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or participation therein, and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank of making or maintaining any LIBOR Loan or of issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit or purchasing or maintaining a participation therein or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank hereunder in respect thereof (whether of principal, interest or otherwise) by an amount deemed by such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank to be material, then the Parent or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall pay to such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank, as the case may be, upon demand such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank, as the case may be, for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered. There shall be no duplication of payments in respect of Indemnified Taxes and Other Taxes required to be made by this Section and by Section 4.5.

(b) If any Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank shall have determined that the adoption after the date hereof of any law, rule, regulation, agreement or guideline regarding capital adequacy or any change after the date hereof in any law, rule, regulation, agreement or guideline regarding capital adequacy (whether or not such law, rule, regulation, agreement or guideline has been adopted) or in the interpretation or administration thereof by any Governmental Authority charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by any Lender (or any lending office of such Lender) or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank or any Lender's or the Swingline Bank's or the Issuing Bank's holding company with any request or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) of any Governmental Authority has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender's or the Swingline Bank's or the Issuing Bank's capital or on the capital of such Lender's or the Swingline Bank's or the Issuing Bank's holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement or the Loans made or participation in Letters of Credit purchased by such Lender or by the Swingline Bank pursuant hereto or the Letters of Credit issued by the Issuing Bank pursuant hereto to a level below that which such Lender or the Swingline Bank or

36

the Issuing Bank or such Lender's or the Swingline Bank's or the Issuing Bank's holding company could have achieved but for such applicability, adoption, change or compliance (taking into consideration such Lender's or the Swingline Bank's or the Issuing Bank's policies and the policies of such Lender's or the Swingline Bank's or the Issuing Bank's holding company with respect to capital adequacy) by an amount deemed by such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank to be material, then from time to time the Parent or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall pay to such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank or such Lender's or the Swingline Bank's or the Issuing Bank's holding company for any such reduction suffered.

(c) A certificate of a Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank or its holding company, as applicable, as specified in paragraph (a) or (b) above shall be delivered to the Parent and shall (if the determination of such amount or amounts is made on a reasonable and nondiscriminatory basis) be conclusive absent manifest error. The Parent or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall pay such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank the amount shown as due on any such certificate delivered by it within 10 days after receipt by the Parent of the same.

(d) Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank to demand compensation for any increased costs or reduction in amounts received or receivable or reduction in return on capital shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender's or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank's right to demand such compensation; provided, however, that if any Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank demands such compensation in respect of a period prior to the date on which written demand therefor is given to the Parent, then the obligation of the Parent or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower to pay such compensation in respect of such period shall be limited to the three months prior to the giving of such written demand, plus (if such demand results from a retroactive change in the aforesaid law, regulation, interpretation, administration, or guideline) the period of such retroactivity; however, such limitation shall not apply in respect of the period from and after the giving of such written demand. The protection of this Section shall be available to each Lender and the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank regardless of any possible contention of the invalidity or inapplicability of the law, rule, regulation, agreement, guideline or other change or condition that shall have occurred or been imposed.

Section 4.3. Change in Legality. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if, after the date hereof, any change in any law or regulation or in the interpretation thereof by any Governmental Authority charged with the administration or interpretation thereof shall make it unlawful for any Lender to make or maintain any LIBOR Loan denominated in a particular currency or to give effect to its obligations as contemplated hereby with respect to any LIBOR Loan denominated in a particular currency, then, by written notice to the Parent (on behalf of itself or a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower, as applicable) and to the Administrative Agent:

37

(x) such Lender may declare that LIBOR Loans in such currency will not thereafter (for the duration of such unlawfulness) be made by such Lender hereunder (or be continued for additional Interest Periods) and that Loans of any other Type will not thereafter (for such duration) be converted into LIBOR Loans denominated in such currency; whereupon (if such currency is dollars) any request for a LIBOR Borrowing in dollars (or to convert an ABR Borrowing into a LIBOR Borrowing in dollars or to continue a LIBOR Borrowing in dollars for an additional Interest Period) shall as to such Lender only be deemed a request for an ABR Loan unless such declaration is subsequently withdrawn; and

(y) such Lender may require that all outstanding LIBOR Loans made by it in such currency be converted to ABR Loans (if such currency is dollars) or be repaid by the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower (if such currency is a Foreign Currency), in which event all such LIBOR Loans shall be so converted or repaid (as applicable) as of the effective date of such notice as provided in paragraph (b) of this Section.

In the case of any conversion pursuant to the exercise by any Lender of its rights under clause (x) or (y) above, all payments and prepayments of principal that would otherwise have been applied to repay the LIBOR Loans in dollars that would have been made by such Lender or the converted LIBOR Loans in dollars of such Lender shall instead be applied to repay the ABR Loans made by such Lender in lieu of, or resulting from the conversion of, such LIBOR Loans in dollars.

(b) For purposes of this Section, a notice to the Parent by any Lender shall be effective as to each LIBOR Loan made by such Lender, if lawful, on the last day of the Interest Period then applicable to such LIBOR Loan; in all other cases such notice shall be effective on the date of receipt by the Parent.

Section 4.4. Indemnity. As to the Loans of each Borrower, such Borrower shall indemnify each Lender against any loss or expense that such Lender may sustain or incur as a consequence of (a) any event, other than a default by such Lender in the performance of its obligations hereunder, which results in (i) such Lender receiving or being deemed to receive any amount on account of the principal of any LIBOR Loan prior to the end of the Interest Period in effect therefor, (ii) the conversion of any LIBOR Loan to an ABR Loan, or the conversion of the Interest Period with respect to any LIBOR Loan, in each case other than on the last day of the Interest Period in effect therefor, or
(iii) any LIBOR Loan to be made by such Lender (including any LIBOR Loan to be made pursuant to a conversion or continuation under Section 2.11) not being made after notice of such Loan shall have been given by the Parent or applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower hereunder (any of the events referred to in this clause (a) being called a "Breakage Event") or (b) any default in the making of payment or prepayment required to be made hereunder. In the case of any Breakage Event, such loss shall include an amount equal to the excess, as reasonably determined by such Lender, of (i) its cost of obtaining funds for the LIBOR Loan that is the subject of such Breakage Event for the period from the date of such Breakage Event to the last day of the Interest Period in effect (or that would have been in effect) for such Loan over (ii) the amount of interest likely to be realized by such Lender in redeploying the funds released or not utilized by reason of such Breakage Event for such period. A certificate of any Lender setting forth any amount or amounts which such Lender is entitled to receive

38

pursuant to this Section shall be delivered to the Parent (on behalf of itself or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) and shall (if the determination of such amount or amounts is made on a reasonable and nondiscriminatory basis) be conclusive absent manifest error.

Section 4.5. Taxes. (a) Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of any Borrower hereunder shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes except as otherwise required by applicable law; provided that, if any Borrower shall be required by applicable law to deduct any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes from such payments, then (i) the sum payable shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) the Administrative Agent, each Lender, the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank (as the case may be) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the applicable Borrower shall make such deductions, and (iii) the applicable Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.

(b) In addition, each Borrower shall pay any Other Taxes payable by it to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.

(c) Each Borrower shall indemnify the Administrative Agent, each Lender, the Swingline Bank and the Issuing Bank, within 10 days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes paid by the Administrative Agent, such Lender, the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank, as the case may be, on or with respect to any payment by or on account of any obligation of such Borrower hereunder (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) and any penalties, interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Parent (on behalf of itself or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) by a Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank, or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank, shall (if there is a reasonable basis for such payment or liability, and if the determination of the amount thereof is made on a reasonable basis) be conclusive absent manifest error.

(d) After payment by a Borrower to the demanding party of the amount demanded pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section, such Borrower shall be entitled to commence a legal proceeding against the applicable Governmental Authority to recover the Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes so paid by the demanding party; and (after such payment by such Borrower to the demanding party) the demanding party shall at the sole expense of such Borrower cooperate with such Borrower as such Borrower may reasonably request with respect to such legal proceeding, provided that the demanding party may do so without material risk of liability.

(e) As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes by a Borrower to a Governmental Authority, such Borrower shall deliver to the

39

Administrative Agent written evidence thereof reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.

(f) If the Administrative Agent or any Lender determines, in its sole discretion, or becomes aware that it has received, or is entitled to, a refund of any Taxes or Other Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by the applicable Borrower or with respect to which such Borrower has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section, the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, shall pay over to such Borrower (i) such refund or (ii) if the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, has decided to not make a claim for a refund to the relevant Governmental Authority, the amount of any refund the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, would have been entitled, in its reasonable judgment, to receive had it made such claim (but, in each case, only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by such Borrower under this Section with respect to the Taxes or Other Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses of the Administrative Agent or such Lender and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided that each Borrower, upon the request of the Administrative Agent or such Lender, agrees to repay the amount paid over to such Borrower (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to the Administrative Agent or such Lender in the event the Administrative Agent or such Lender is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority.

(g) This Section shall not be construed to require the Administrative Agent or any Lender to make available its tax returns (or any other information relating to its taxes which it deems confidential) to any Borrower or any other Person.

Section 4.6. Duty to Mitigate. If (i) any Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank shall request compensation under Section 4.2, (ii) any Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank delivers a notice described in
Section 4.3 or (iii) a Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank or any Governmental Authority on account of any Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank, pursuant to
Section 4.5, then such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank shall use reasonable efforts (which shall not require such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank to incur an unreimbursed loss or unreimbursed cost or expense or otherwise take any action inconsistent with its internal policies or legal or regulatory restrictions or suffer any disadvantage or burden deemed by it to be significant) (x) to file any certificate or document reasonably requested in writing by the Parent or (y) to assign its rights and delegate and transfer its obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if such filing or assignment would reduce its claims for compensation under Section 4.2 or enable it to withdraw its notice pursuant to
Section 4.3 or would reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 4.5, as the case may be, in the future. The Parent hereby agrees to pay all reasonable and documented costs and expenses incurred by any Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank in connection with any such filing or assignment, delegation and transfer.

Section 4.7. Replacement of Lenders. If any Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank requests compensation under Section 4.2, or if any Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank delivers a notice described in
Section 4.3, or if a Borrower is required

40

to pay any additional amount to any Lender, the Swingline Bank, the Issuing Bank or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 4.5, or if any Lender defaults in its obligation to fund Loans hereunder, then the Parent may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank, as the case may be, and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank, as the case may be, to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 12.5, which restrictions shall apply, for purposes of this Section, with reference to the Swingline Bank and the Issuing Bank, as well as with reference to a Lender) all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided that (i) if the assignee is not a Lender, the Parent shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent (and the Swingline Bank and the Issuing Bank), which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld; and (ii) such Lender or the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans and unreimbursed L/C Disbursements and funded participations in Swingline Loans, accrued interest thereon and accrued fees and other amounts (including amounts under Sections 4.2, 4.3, 4.4 and 4.5) payable to it hereunder from the assignee or the applicable Borrower, and (if the Issuing Bank is to be the assignor) the Issuing Bank shall have received from the Parent cash collateral or other collateral satisfactory to it, having a value not less than the aggregate undrawn face amount of all Letters of Credit that are outstanding, as security for the reimbursement obligation of the Parent in respect of such Letters of Credit; and
(iii) in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 4.2 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 4.3 or 4.5, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments. A Lender, the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank (as the case may be) shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender, the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank (as the case may be) or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Parent to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply. The interests, rights and obligations hereunder of a Lender that serves as either or both of the Issuing Bank or the Swingline Bank hereunder shall include its interests, rights and obligations in all such capacities.

Section 4.8. Certain Additional Costs. (a) If and so long as any Lender is required to comply with reserve assets, liquidity, cash margin or other requirements of any monetary or other authority (including any such requirement imposed by the European Central Bank or the European System of Central Banks, but excluding requirements reflected in the Statutory Reserve Rate) in respect of any of such Lender's Foreign Currency Loans, such Lender may require the Borrower to which such Lender has made a Foreign Currency Loan to pay, contemporaneously with each payment of interest on each of such Lender's Foreign Currency Loans subject to such requirements, additional interest on such Foreign Currency Loan at a rate per annum specified by such Lender to be the cost to such Lender of complying with requirements in relation to such Foreign Currency Loan. Any additional interest owed pursuant to this paragraph shall be determined by the relevant Lender, which determination (if made on a reasonable and nondiscriminatory basis) shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and notified to the Parent (on behalf of the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) at least five Business Days before each date on which interest is payable for the relevant Foreign Currency Loan, and such additional interest so notified by such Lender

41

shall be payable to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender on each date on which interest is payable for such Foreign Currency Loan.

(b) If the cost to any Lender of making or maintaining any Loan to either Foreign Subsidiary Borrower is increased (or the amount of any sum received or receivable by any Lender (or its applicable lending office) is reduced) by an amount deemed in good faith by such Lender to be material, by reason of the fact that the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower is incorporated in, or conducts business in, a jurisdiction outside the United States, such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall indemnify such Lender for such increased cost or reduction. A certificate of a Lender setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to indemnify such Lender as specified in this paragraph shall be delivered to the Parent (on behalf of the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) and shall (if made on a reasonable and nondiscriminatory basis) be conclusive absent manifest error. The applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof by the Parent.

ARTICLE 6. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES.

Each of the Borrowers hereby represents and warrants as follows (provided, however, that such representations and warranties by each Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall be as to such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower and its Subsidiaries only):

Section 6.1. Incorporation, Good Standing and Due Qualification. Each of the Parent and its Subsidiaries is duly incorporated or formed, validly existing and (where such concept exists) in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its incorporation or organization, has the corporate, limited liability company or other power and authority to own its

44

assets and to transact the business in which it is now engaged, and is duly qualified as a foreign corporation, limited liability company or partnership and in good standing under the laws of each other jurisdiction in which the failure to be so qualified would have a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition or operations of the Parent and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole.

Section 6.2. Corporate Power and Authority; No Conflicts. The execution, delivery and performance by each of the Borrowers and each Guarantor of the Facility Documents to which it is a party are within its corporate, limited liability company or other power and authority and have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate, limited liability company or other action and do not and will not: (a) require any consent or approval of its stockholders or members; (b) contravene any of its organizational documents; (c) violate any provision of, or require any filing, registration, consent or approval under, any law, rule, regulation (including, without limitation, Regulation U), order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award presently in effect having applicability to the Parent or any Subsidiaries or Affiliates of the Parent; (d) result in a breach of or constitute a default or require any consent under any indenture or loan or credit agreement or any other agreement, lease or instrument to which any Borrower or Guarantor is a party or by which it or its properties may be bound or affected; (e) result in, or require, the creation or imposition of any Lien upon or with respect to any of the properties now owned or hereafter acquired by any Borrower or Guarantor; or (f) cause the Parent (or any Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Parent, as the case may be) to be in default under any such law, rule, regulation, order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award or any such indenture, agreement, lease or instrument.

Section 6.3. Legally Enforceable Agreements. Each Facility Document to which any Borrower or Guarantor is a party is a legal, valid and binding obligation of such Borrower or Guarantor (as the case may be) enforceable against such Borrower or Guarantor (as the case may be) in accordance with its terms, except to the extent that such enforcement may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and other similar laws affecting creditors' rights generally and by general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in equity or at law).

Section 6.4. Litigation. There are no actions, suits or proceedings pending or, to the knowledge of any Borrower, threatened, against or affecting the Parent or any of its Subsidiaries before any court, governmental agency or arbitrator, as to which there is a reasonable possibility of determination adverse to the Parent or such Subsidiary and which (if determined adversely to the Parent or such Subsidiary) would, in any one case or in the aggregate, materially adversely affect the financial condition, operations or business of the Parent and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole or the ability of any Borrower or any Guarantor to perform its obligations under the Facility Documents to which it is a party.

Section 6.5. Financial Statements.

No information, exhibit or report furnished by any Borrower to the Administrative Agent or any of the Lenders in connection with the negotiation of this Agreement, when read together with the financial statements referred to in this Section, contained any material misstatement of fact or omitted to state a material fact or any fact necessary to make the statements contained therein not materially misleading. Since January 31, 2005, there has been no material adverse change in the condition (financial or otherwise), business or operations of the Parent and the Consolidated Subsidiaries taken as a whole.

Section 6.6. Ownership and Liens. Each of the Parent and its Consolidated Subsidiaries has title to, or valid leasehold interests in, all of its properties and assets, real and personal, including the properties and assets, and leasehold interests reflected in the financial statements referred to in Section 6.5 (other than any properties or assets disposed of in the ordinary course of business, and other than properties and assets that are not material to the Parent and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole and other than any other sales that are permitted by this Agreement), and none of the properties and assets owned by the Parent or any of its Subsidiaries and none of its leasehold interests is subject to any Lien, except as disclosed in such financial statements or as may be permitted hereunder.

The cash available to each Borrower after taking into account all

ARTICLE 11. THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT; RELATIONS AMONG LENDERS AND PARENT.

Section 11.1. Appointment, Powers and Immunities of Administrative Agent. Each Lender (in its capacity as Lender and, as applicable, Swingline Bank and Issuing Bank) hereby irrevocably (but subject to removal by the Required Lenders pursuant to Section 11.9) appoints and authorizes the Administrative Agent to act as its agent hereunder and under any other Facility Document with such powers as are specifically delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms of this Agreement and any other Facility Document, together with such other powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. The Administrative Agent shall have no duties or responsibilities except those expressly set forth in this Agreement and any other Facility Document, and shall not by reason of this Agreement be a trustee for any Lender. The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible to the Lenders for any recitals, statements, representations or warranties made by any Borrower or any officer or official of any Borrower or any other Person contained in this Agreement or any other Facility Document, or in any certificate or other document or instrument referred to or provided for in, or received by any of them under, this Agreement or any other Facility Document, or for the value, legality, validity, effectiveness, genuineness, enforceability or sufficiency of this Agreement or any other Facility Document or any other document or instrument referred to or provided for herein or therein, for the perfection or priority of any collateral security for the Loans or the reimbursement obligations in respect of Letters of Credit or for any failure by any Borrower or any Guarantor to perform any of its obligations hereunder or under any other Facility Document. The Administrative Agent may employ agents and attorneys-in-fact and shall not be responsible, except as to money or securities received by it or its authorized agents, for the negligence or misconduct of any such agents or attorneys-in-fact selected by it with reasonable care. Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its directors, officers, employees or agents shall be liable or responsible for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it or them hereunder or under any

68

other Facility Document or in connection herewith or therewith, except for its or their own gross negligence or willful misconduct.

Section 11.2. Reliance by Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely upon any certification, notice or other communication (including any thereof by telephone, telex, telegram or cable) believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed or sent by or on behalf of the proper Person or Persons, and upon advice and statements of legal counsel, independent accountants and other experts selected by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent may deem and treat each Lender as the holder of the Loans made by it and its participations in Letters of Credit for all purposes hereof unless and until an Assignment and Assumption Agreement shall have been furnished to the Administrative Agent in accordance with Section 12.5, but the Administrative Agent shall not be required to deal with any Person who has acquired a participation in any Loan or any such participation from a Lender. As to any matters not expressly provided for by this Agreement or any other Facility Document, the Administrative Agent shall in all cases be fully protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, hereunder in accordance with instructions signed by the Required Lenders, and such instructions of the Required Lenders and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto shall be binding on all of the Lenders and any other holder of all or any portion of any Loan or any such participation.

Section 11.3. Defaults. The Administrative Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge of the occurrence of a Default or Event of Default (other than the non-payment of principal of or interest on the Loans to the extent the same is required to be paid to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders) unless the Administrative Agent has received notice from a Lender or a Borrower specifying such Default or Event of Default and stating that such notice is a "Notice of Default." In the event that the Administrative Agent receives such a notice of the occurrence of a Default or Event of Default, the Administrative Agent shall give prompt notice thereof to the Lenders (and shall give each Lender prompt notice of each such non-payment). The Administrative Agent shall (subject to Section 11.8 and Section 12.1(a)) take such action with respect to such Default or Event of Default which is continuing as shall be directed by the Required Lenders; provided that, unless and until the Administrative Agent shall have received such directions, the Administrative Agent may take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such Default or Event of Default as it shall deem advisable in the best interest of the Lenders; and provided further that the Administrative Agent shall not be required to take any such action which it determines to be contrary to law.

Section 11.4. Rights of Administrative Agent as a Lender. With respect to its Revolving Credit Commitment and the Loans made by it and the Letters of Credit, the entity which is the Administrative Agent in its capacity as a Lender hereunder shall have the same rights and powers hereunder as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not acting as the Administrative Agent, and the term "Lender" or "Lenders" shall, unless the context otherwise indicates, include the entity which is the Administrative Agent in its capacity as a Lender. The entity which is the Administrative Agent and its Affiliates may (without having to account therefor to any Lender) accept deposits from, lend money to (on a secured or unsecured basis), and generally engage in any kind of banking, trust or other business with, the Parent (and any of its Affiliates) as if it were not acting as the Administrative Agent, and the entity which is the Administrative Agent may accept fees and other consideration from any

69

Borrower for services in connection with this Agreement or otherwise without having to account for the same to the Lenders. Although the Administrative Agent and its Affiliates may in the course of such relationships and relationships with other Persons acquire information about the Parent, its Affiliates and such other Persons, the Administrative Agent shall have no duty to disclose such information to the Lenders.

Section 11.5. Indemnification of Administrative Agent. The Lenders agree to indemnify the Administrative Agent (to the extent not reimbursed under
Section 12.3 or under the applicable provisions of any other Facility Document, but without limiting the obligations of the Borrowers under Section 12.3 or such provisions), ratably in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Percentages, for any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind and nature whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement, any other Facility Document or any other documents contemplated by or referred to herein or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby (including, without limitation, the costs and expenses which any Borrower is obligated to pay under
Section 12.3 or under the applicable provisions of any other Facility Document but excluding, unless a Default or Event of Default has occurred, normal administrative costs and expenses incident to the performance of its agency duties hereunder) or the enforcement of any of the terms hereof or thereof or of any such other documents or instruments; provided that no Lender shall be liable for any of the foregoing to the extent they arise from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the party to be indemnified.

Section 11.6. Documents. The Administrative Agent will forward to each Lender, promptly after the Administrative Agent's receipt thereof, a copy of each report, notice or other document required by this Agreement or any other Facility Document to be delivered to the Administrative Agent for such Lender.

Section 11.7. Non-Reliance on Administrative Agent and Other Lenders. Each Lender agrees that it has, independently and without reliance on the Administrative Agent or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis of the Parent and its Subsidiaries and decision to enter into this Agreement and that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own analysis and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement or any other Facility Document. The Administrative Agent shall not be required to keep itself informed as to the performance or observance by any Borrower of this Agreement or any other Facility Document or any other document referred to or provided for herein or therein or to inspect the properties or books of the Parent or any Subsidiary. Except for notices, reports and other documents and information expressly required to be furnished to the Lenders by the Administrative Agent hereunder, the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to provide any Lender with any credit or other information concerning the affairs, financial condition or business of the Parent or any Subsidiary (or any of their Affiliates) which may come into the possession of the Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates. The Administrative Agent shall not be required to file this Agreement, any other Facility Document or any document or instrument referred to herein or therein, for record or give notice of this

70

Agreement, any other Facility Document or any document or instrument referred to herein or therein, to anyone.

Section 11.8. Failure of Administrative Agent to Act. Except for action expressly required of the Administrative Agent hereunder, the Administrative Agent shall in all cases be fully justified in failing or refusing to act hereunder unless it shall have received further assurances (which may include cash collateral) of the indemnification obligations of the Lenders under Section 11.5 in respect of any and all liability and expense which may be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action.

Section 11.9. Resignation of Administrative Agent. Subject to the appointment and acceptance of a successor Administrative Agent as provided below, the Administrative Agent may resign at any time by giving written notice thereof to the Lenders and the Parent (on behalf of itself and the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers). Upon any such resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right to appoint a successor Administrative Agent, subject (unless an Event of Default exists) to the approval of the Parent, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. If no successor Administrative Agent shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after the retiring Administrative Agent's giving of notice of resignation, then the retiring Administrative Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Administrative Agent, subject (unless an Event of Default exists) to the approval of the Parent, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, which shall be a Lender or (if no Lender accepts the appointment) a bank which has an office in New York, New York and London and has a combined capital and surplus of at least $1,000,000,000. The Required Lenders or the retiring Administrative Agent, as the case may be, shall upon the appointment of a successor Administrative Agent promptly so notify the Parent (on behalf of itself and the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers) and the other Lenders. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor Administrative Agent, such successor Administrative Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Administrative Agent, and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. After any retiring Administrative Agent's resignation hereunder as Administrative Agent, the provisions of this Article 11 shall continue in effect for its benefit in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as the Administrative Agent.

Section 11.10. Amendments Concerning Agency Function. The Administrative Agent shall not be bound by any waiver, amendment, supplement or modification of this Agreement or any other Facility Document which affects its duties hereunder or thereunder unless it shall have given its prior consent thereto.

Section 11.11. Liability of Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall not have any liabilities or responsibilities to any Borrower on account of the failure of any Lender to perform its obligations hereunder or to any Lender on account of the failure of any Borrower or any Guarantor to perform its obligations hereunder or under any other Facility Document.

Section 11.12. Delegation of Agency Functions. The Administrative Agent may perform any and all its duties and exercise any or all of its rights and powers by or through any

71

one or more sub-agents appointed by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent may perform any and all its duties and exercise any and all of its rights and powers through their respective Affiliates. The exculpatory provisions as to the Administrative Agent contained in this Article shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Affiliates of the Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent.

Section 11.13. Non-Receipt of Funds by the Administrative Agent. Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified by a Lender or a Borrower (either one as appropriate being the "Payor") (or by the Parent on behalf of a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) prior to the date on which such Lender is to make payment hereunder to the Administrative Agent of the proceeds of a Loan or such Borrower is to make payment to the Administrative Agent, as the case may be (either such payment being a "Required Payment"), which notice shall be effective upon receipt, that the Payor does not intend to make the Required Payment to the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Required Payment has been made and may, in reliance upon such assumption (but shall not be required to), make the amount thereof available to the intended recipient on such date and, if the Payor has not in fact made the Required Payment to the Administrative Agent, the recipient of such payment (and, if such recipient is a Borrower and the Payor Lender fails to pay the amount thereof to the Administrative Agent forthwith upon demand, such Borrower) shall, on demand, repay to the Administrative Agent the amount made available to it together with interest thereon for the period from the date such amount was so made available by the Administrative Agent until the date the Administrative Agent recovers such amount at a rate per annum equal to (i) in the case of a Borrower, the interest rate applicable at such time to the applicable Loan, and
(ii) in the case of such Lender, a rate determined by the Administrative Agent to represent its cost of overnight or short-term funds in the relevant currency (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error). If a Lender makes a Required Payment to the Administrative Agent pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence and a Borrower shall have repaid such amount to the Administrative Agent pursuant to such sentence, the Administrative Agent shall promptly return to such Borrower any amount (including interest) paid by such Borrower to the Administrative Agent pursuant to such sentence.

Section 11.14. Withholding Taxes. Each Lender represents to the Administrative Agent and the Parent that it is entitled to receive any payments to be made to it hereunder without the withholding of any tax imposed by the United States of America and will furnish to the Administrative Agent such forms, certifications, statements and other documents as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request from time to time to evidence such Lender's exemption from the withholding of any tax imposed by any jurisdiction or to enable the Administrative Agent to comply with any applicable laws or regulations relating thereto. Without limiting the effect of the foregoing, if any Lender is not created or organized under the laws of the United States of America or any state thereof, in the event that the payment of interest by any Borrower is treated for U.S. income tax purposes as derived in whole or in part from sources from within the U.S., such Lender will furnish to the Administrative Agent Form W-8ECI or Form W-8BEN of the Internal Revenue Service, or such other forms, certifications, statements or documents, duly executed and completed by such Lender as evidence of such Lender's exemption from the withholding of U.S. tax with respect thereto. The Administrative Agent shall not be obligated to make any payments hereunder to such Lender in respect of any Loan or reimbursement of a drawing under a Letter of Credit or such Lender's Revolving Credit

72

Commitment until such Lender shall have furnished to the Administrative Agent the requested form, certification, statement or document.

Section 11.15. Several Obligations and Rights of Lenders. The failure of any Lender to make any Loan to be made by it on the date specified therefor shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligation to make its Loan on such date, but no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make a Loan to be made by such other Lender. No Lender shall be responsible for any failure of the Swingline Bank to make a Swingline Loan required to be made hereunder, or for any failure of the Issuing Bank to issue a Letter of Credit required to be issued hereunder. The amounts payable at any time hereunder to each Lender, the Swingline Bank and the Issuing Bank shall be a separate and independent debt, and each of them shall be entitled to protect and enforce its rights arising out of this Agreement, and it shall not be necessary for any other of them to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose.

Section 11.16. Pro Rata Treatment of Syndicated Loans, Etc. Except to the extent otherwise expressly provided: (a) each Borrowing of Loans pursuant to
Section 2.1 shall be made from the Lenders, each reduction or termination of the amount of the Revolving Credit Commitments under Section 2.10 shall be applied to the Revolving Credit Commitments, and each payment of Commitment Fees accruing under Section 2.7 shall be made for the account of the Lenders, pro rata according to the amounts of their respective unused Revolving Credit Commitments; (b) each conversion under Section 2.11 of Syndicated Loans of a particular Type (but not conversions provided for by Article 4), shall be made pro rata among the Lenders holding Syndicated Loans of such Type according to the respective principal amounts of such Syndicated Loans by such Lenders; (c) each prepayment and payment of principal of or interest on Syndicated Loans of a particular Type and a particular Interest Period shall be made to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders holding Syndicated Loans of such Type and Interest Period pro rata in accordance with the respective unpaid principal amounts of such Syndicated Loans of such Interest Period held by such Lenders; and (d) each payment of L/C Participation Fees accruing under Section 3.9 shall be made for the account of the Lenders, pro rata according to their respective Pro Rata Percentages of the average daily aggregate L/C Exposure (excluding the portion thereof attributable to unreimbursed L/C Disbursements).

Section 11.17. Sharing of Payments Among Lenders. If a Lender shall obtain payment of any principal of or interest on any Syndicated Loan made by it, or of any reimbursement obligation of the Parent as to Letters of Credit, through the exercise of any right of setoff, banker's lien, counterclaim, or by any other means it shall promptly purchase from the other Lenders participations in (or, if and to the extent specified by such Lender, direct interests in) the Loans made by the other Lenders and Letters of Credit in such amounts, and make such other adjustments from time to time as shall be equitable to the end that all the Lenders shall share the benefit of such payment (net of any expenses which may be incurred by such Lender in obtaining or preserving such benefit) pro rata in accordance with the unpaid principal and interest on the Loans and Letter of Credit participations held by each of them. To such end the Lenders shall make appropriate adjustments among themselves (by the resale of participations sold or otherwise) if such payment is rescinded or must otherwise be restored. Each Borrower agrees that any Lender so purchasing a participation (or direct interest) in the Loans made by other Lenders or Letters of Credit may exercise all rights of setoff, banker's lien, counterclaim or

73

similar rights with respect to such participation (or direct interest). Nothing contained herein shall require any Lender to exercise any such right or shall affect the right of any Lender to exercise, and retain the benefits of exercising, any such right with respect to any other indebtedness of any Borrower.

Section 11.18. Other Agents. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Sole Lead Arranger and Sole Bookrunner, the Syndication Agent and the Documentation Agents named on the cover page of this Agreement shall not have any duties or liabilities under this Agreement, except in their capacity, if any, as Lenders.

ARTICLE 12. MISCELLANEOUS.

Section 12.1. Amendments and Waivers; Remedies Cumulative. (a) Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, any provision of this Agreement may be amended or modified only by an instrument in writing signed by the Borrowers (or by the Parent, on behalf of itself and the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers), the Administrative Agent and the Required Lenders, or by the Borrowers (or by the Parent, on behalf of itself and the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers), and the Administrative Agent acting with the consent of the Required Lenders, and any provision of this Agreement may be waived by the Required Lenders or by the Administrative Agent acting with the consent of the Required Lenders; provided that no amendment, modification or waiver shall, unless by an instrument signed by all of the Lenders or by the Administrative Agent acting with the consent of all of the Lenders: (i) increase or extend the term, or extend the time for the reduction or termination, of the Revolving Credit Commitments (except that, for the avoidance of doubt, the Revolving Credit Commitments may be increased pursuant to Section 2.16 without the approval or consent of any Lender other than each relevant Increasing Lender or Augmenting Lender referred to in Section 2.16), (ii) extend the date fixed for the payment of principal of or interest on any Loan, the reimbursement obligation in respect of any Letter of Credit or any interest thereon or any fees payable hereunder,
(iii) reduce the amount of any payment of principal thereof or the rate at which interest is payable thereon or any fee payable hereunder, (iv) alter the terms of this Section or any other provision hereof specifying that the approval of all Lenders is required (including such provisions contained in Section 12.5(a)), (v) amend the definition of the term "Required Lenders", (vi) release collateral (if any) in any material amount, (vii) release or limit guarantees in any material amount (provided that the Administrative Agent shall release, without the consent of any Lenders, any Guarantee of a Subsidiary all of whose stock (or substantially all of whose stock) is sold to a Person other than another Subsidiary in a sale that is otherwise permitted by this Agreement or is otherwise disposed of in accordance with this Agreement), or (viii) the addition of currencies in which Loans can be made; and provided, further, that (x) any amendment of Article 11 or any amendment which increases the obligations of the Administrative Agent hereunder shall require the consent of the Administrative Agent; (y) any amendment which increases the obligations of the Swingline Bank hereunder shall require the consent of the Swingline Bank; and (z) any amendment which increases the obligations of the Issuing Bank hereunder shall require the consent of the Issuing Bank.

(b) No failure or delay by the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank, the Swingline Bank or any Lender in exercising any right or power hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any

74

abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such a right or power, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power. The rights and remedies of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank, the Swingline Bank and the Lenders hereunder are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies that they would otherwise have. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement or consent to any departure by any Borrower therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by paragraph (a) of this Section, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the making of a Loan or issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of a Letter of Credit shall not be construed as a waiver of any Default or Event of Default, regardless of whether the Administrative Agent, any Lender, the Swingline Bank or the Issuing Bank may have had notice or knowledge of such Default or Event of Default at the time.

Section 12.2. Usury. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the obligations of each Borrower under this Agreement and the Notes shall be subject to the limitation that payments of interest shall not be required to the extent that receipt thereof would be contrary to provisions of law applicable to a Lender limiting rates of interest which may be charged or collected by such Lender.

Section 12.3. Expenses; Indemnity; Damage Waiver. (a) The Parent and (subject to the limitation contained in the sentence next following) each Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall pay (i) all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent, including the reasonable and documented fees, charges and disbursements of counsel for the Administrative Agent, in connection with the syndication of the credit facility provided for herein, the preparation and administration of this Agreement or any amendments, modifications or waivers of the provisions hereof (whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby shall be consummated), (ii) all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Issuing Bank in connection with the issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of any Letter of Credit or any demand for payment thereunder and (iii) all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank, the Swingline Bank or any Lender, including the reasonable and documented fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank, the Swingline Bank or any Lender, in connection with the enforcement or protection of its rights in connection with this Agreement, including its rights under this Section, or in connection with the Loans made or Letters of Credit issued hereunder, including all such reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred during any workout, restructuring or negotiations in respect of such Loans or Letters of Credit. The liability of each Foreign Subsidiary Borrower under this paragraph (a) shall be limited to such out-of-pocket expenses that (x) relate to such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower or to the Loans made to such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower or to the obligations incurred by such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower under this Agreement or under any other Facility Document to which such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower is a party, or
(y) arise as a result of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower being a party to this Agreement or to another Facility Document.

(b) The Parent and (subject to the limitation contained in the sentence next following) each Foreign Subsidiary Borrower shall indemnify the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank, the Swingline Bank and each Lender, and each Related Party of any of the

75

foregoing Persons (each such Person being called an "Indemnitee") against, and hold each Indemnitee harmless from, any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses, including the reasonable and documented fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for any Indemnitee, incurred by or asserted against any Indemnitee arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of (i) the use of proceeds of a Loan or Letter of Credit, (ii) any refusal by the Issuing Bank to honor a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit if the documents presented in connection with such demand do not strictly comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit), (iii) any actual or alleged presence or release of Hazardous Materials on or from any property owned or operated by the Parent or any of its Subsidiaries, or any environmental liability related in any way to the Parent or any of its Subsidiaries, or (iv) any actual or prospective claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing or to the execution or delivery of this Agreement or any other Facility Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby or to the performance by the parties hereto or thereto of their respective obligations hereunder or thereunder or to the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby or to any Loan or Letter of Credit, whether the same is based on contract, tort or any other theory and regardless of whether any Indemnitee is a party thereto; provided that such indemnity shall not, as to any Indemnitee, be available to the extent that such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or related expenses are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee. The liability of each Foreign Subsidiary Borrower under this paragraph (b) shall be limited to such losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses that (x) relate to such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower or to the Loans made to such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower or to the obligations incurred by such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower under this Agreement or under any other Facility Document to which such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower is a party, or (y) arise as a result of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower being a party to this Agreement or to another Facility Document.

(c) To the extent that the Borrowers fail to pay any amount required to be paid to the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank or the Swingline Bank under paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section, each Lender severally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank or the Swingline Bank, as the case may be, such Lender's Pro Rata Percentage (determined as of the time that the applicable unreimbursed expense or indemnity payment is sought) of such unpaid amount; provided that the unreimbursed expense or indemnified loss, claim, damage, liability or related expense, as the case may be, was incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank or the Swingline Bank in its capacity as such.

(d) To the extent permitted by applicable law, no Borrower shall assert, and each Borrower hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement, any other Facility Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, any Loan or Letter of Credit or the use of the proceeds thereof.

Section 12.4. Survival. The obligations of the Borrowers under Article 4 and Section 12.3 shall survive the repayment of the Loans and the expiration of the Letters of Credit and the termination of the Revolving Credit Commitments.

76

Section 12.5. Assignment; Participations. (a) This Agreement shall be binding upon, and shall inure to the benefit of, the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent, the Lenders, the Swingline Bank, the Issuing Bank and their respective successors and assigns, except that no Borrower may assign or transfer its rights or obligations hereunder without the written approval of all the Lenders (and any attempted such assignment or transfer without such consent shall be null and void).

(b) Each Lender may assign to one or more assignees all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Revolving Credit Commitment and the Syndicated Loans owing to it and its participations in Letters of Credit and in Swingline Loans), with the prior written consent (such consent not to unreasonably withheld) of (i) the Administrative Agent, the Swingline Bank and the Issuing Bank and (ii) the Parent; provided that (x) no such consent of the Parent shall be required for an assignment to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund or if any Event of Default exists as a result of the commencement of a case with respect to the Parent under the U.S. Federal Bankruptcy Code or as a result of the commencement of a bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership or similar proceeding with respect to either Foreign Subsidiary Borrower under Swiss or other foreign law, to any other assignee and (y) the provisions of paragraph (g) below shall have been complied with.

Assignments shall be subject to the following additional conditions:

(A) each such assignment shall be of a constant, and not a varying, percentage of the assigning Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement and the assignment shall cover the same percentage of such Lender's Revolving Credit Commitment and Syndicated Loans and participations in Letters of Credit and in Swingline Loans;

(B) except in the case of an assignment to a Lender or an Affiliate of a Lender or an assignment of the entire remaining amount of the assigning Lender's Commitment or Loans, the amount of the Revolving Credit Commitment of the assigning Lender being assigned pursuant to each such assignment (determined as of the effective date of the Assignment and Assumption Agreement with respect to such assignment) shall in no event be less than $5,000,000 and shall be an integral multiple of $1,000,000, unless the Administrative Agent and the Parent otherwise consent (provided that no such consent of the Parent shall be required if any Event of Default exists as a result of the commencement of a case with respect to the Parent under the U.S. Federal Bankruptcy Code or as a result of the commencement of a bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership or similar proceeding with respect to either Foreign Subsidiary Borrower under Swiss or other foreign law);

(C) the parties to each such assignment shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent, for its approval and acceptance, an Assignment and Assumption Agreement;

(D) the Administrative Agent shall receive from the assignor (or, in the case of an assignment pursuant to Section 4.7, from the Parent) a processing fee of $3,500; and

77

(E) the assignee, if it shall not be a Lender, shall deliver to the Administrative Agent an Administrative Questionnaire.

Upon such execution, delivery, approval and acceptance, and on the effective date specified in the applicable Assignment and Assumption Agreement,
(a) the assignee thereunder shall become a party hereto and a "Lender" for purposes hereof and, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned to it pursuant to such Assignment and Assumption Agreement, shall have the rights and obligations of a Lender hereunder and (b) the Lender-assignor thereunder shall, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned by it pursuant to such Assignment and Assumption Agreement, relinquish its rights (except under Article 4 and Section 12.3 in respect of the period prior to the effective date of such Assignment and Assumption) and be released from its obligations under this Agreement.

(c) By executing and delivering an Assignment and Assumption Agreement, the Lender-assignor thereunder and the assignee thereunder confirm to and agree with each other and the other parties hereto as follows: (i) other than as provided in such Assignment and Assumption Agreement, such assigning Lender makes no representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility with respect to any statements, warranties or representations made in or in connection with this Agreement or any other Facility Document or the execution, legality, validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of this Agreement or any other Facility Document or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto; (ii) such assigning Lender makes no representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility with respect to the financial condition of the Parent or any Subsidiary or the performance or observance by the Parent or any Subsidiary of any of their respective obligations under any Facility Document or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto; (iii) such assignee confirms that it has received a copy of this Agreement, together with copies of the most recent financial statements referred to in Section 7.8(a) and (b) and such other Facility Documents and other documents and information as it has deemed appropriate to make its own credit analysis and decision to enter into such Assignment and Assumption Agreement; (iv) such assignee will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent, such assigning Lender or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement; (v) such assignee appoints and authorizes the Administrative Agent to take such action as agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers under this Agreement and the other Facility Documents as are delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms hereof and thereof, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto; and (vi) such assignee agrees that it will perform in accordance with their terms all of the obligations which by the terms of this Agreement are required to be performed by it as a Lender.

(d) The Administrative Agent shall maintain a copy of each Assignment and Assumption Agreement delivered to and accepted by it and shall record the names and addresses of each Lender and the Revolving Credit Commitment of, and principal amount of the Syndicated Loans owing to, and the amount of participations in Letters of Credit and in Swingline Loans of, such Lender from time to time. Each Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders may treat each Person whose name is so recorded as a Lender hereunder for all

78

purposes of this Agreement, absent manifest error. Such record shall be available for inspection by each Borrower and each Lender.

(e) Upon its receipt of an Assignment and Assumption Agreement executed by an assigning Lender and an assignee and (to the extent required by this Section) consented to by the Parent, the Swingline Bank and the Issuing Bank and the assignee's completed Administrative Questionnaire (unless the assignee shall already be a Lender hereunder), the Administrative Agent shall, if such Assignment and Assumption Agreement has been properly completed, (i) accept such Assignment and Assumption Agreement, (ii) record the information contained therein and (iii) give prompt notice thereof to the Parent (on behalf of itself and the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers) and the Lenders. Upon request, each Borrower shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent appropriate promissory notes in favor of each assignee evidencing such assignee's Pro Rata Percentage of the Total Revolving Credit Commitment. If the Lender-assignor shall have assigned its entire Revolving Credit Commitment and Syndicated Loans, the original promissory notes evidencing such Revolving Credit Commitment and Syndicated Loans shall be cancelled and returned to the Parent (on behalf of itself or the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower).

(f) Subject to paragraph (g) of this Section, each Lender may sell participations to one or more banks, finance companies, insurance or other financial institutions in or to all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including without limitation all or a portion of its Revolving Credit Commitment and the Syndicated Loans owing to it); provided, however, that (i) such Lender's obligations under this Agreement (including without limitation its Revolving Credit Commitment and its participations in Letters of Credit) shall remain unchanged, (ii) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations,
(iii) such participant shall have no rights under any of the Facility Documents,
(iv) each Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement and with regard to any and all payments to be made under this Agreement and its Notes, and (v) the agreement executed by such Lender in favor of the participant shall not give the participant the right to require such Lender to take or omit to take any action hereunder except action directly relating to (i) the extension of a payment date with respect to any portion of the principal of or interest on any amount outstanding hereunder allocated to such participant, (ii) the reduction of the principal amount outstanding hereunder allocated to such participant or (iii) the reduction of the rate of interest payable on such amount or any amount of fees payable hereunder to a rate or amount, as the case may be, below that which the participant is entitled to receive under its agreement with such Lender.

(g) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, without the prior written consent of the Parent, no Lender shall effect any assignment of all or a portion of, or any sale of a participation in or entry into any sub-participation agreement (each a "transfer") with respect to, any Syndicated Loan made to any Foreign Subsidiary Borrower if such transfer would result in more than five Lenders which are not Qualifying Banks. Each Lender further agrees that if in connection with any transfer by such Lender the proposed transferee is not a Qualifying Bank, such Lender shall give at least ten days' prior notice of such proposed transfer to the Parent and the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly notify each of the other Lenders). Any such

79

purported assignment, participation or sub-participation that does not comply with the requirements of this paragraph (including the requirement for notice pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence) shall be null and void.

(h) Each Borrower will use reasonable efforts to cooperate with the Administrative Agent and Lenders in connection with the assignment of interests under this Agreement or the sale of participations herein.

(i) No Lender shall be permitted to assign or sell all or any portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement to the Parent or any Affiliate of the Parent.

(j) Any Lender that proposes to sell any assignment or participation hereunder may furnish any information concerning the Parent and its Affiliates in the possession of such Lender from time to time to assignees and participants (including prospective assignees and participants); provided that such Lender shall require any such prospective assignee or such participant (prospective or otherwise) to agree in writing to maintain the confidentiality of such information, as provided in Section 12.14.

(k) In addition to the assignments and participations permitted under the foregoing provisions of this Section, any Lender may at any time pledge or grant a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including without limitation any pledge or grant to secure obligations of such Lender to a Federal Reserve Bank, and this Section shall not apply to any such pledge or grant of a security interest; provided that no such pledge or grant of a security interest shall release a Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or grantee for such Lender as a party hereto.

Section 12.6. Notices. (a) Except in the case of notices and other communications expressly permitted to be given by telephone (and subject to paragraph (b) below), all notices and other communications provided for herein shall be in writing and shall be delivered by hand or overnight courier service, mailed by certified or registered mail or sent by telecopy, (i) in the case of any Borrower, the Administrative Agent, the Swingline Bank and the Issuing Bank, to it at its address set forth beneath its signature line below and (ii) in the case of any Lender, to it at its address (or telecopy number) set forth in its Administrative Questionnaire.

(b) Notices and other communications to the Lenders hereunder may be delivered or furnished by electronic communications pursuant to procedures approved by the Administrative Agent; provided that the foregoing shall not apply to notices pursuant to Article 2 unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent and the applicable Lender. The Administrative Agent or any Borrower may, in its discretion, agree to accept notices and other communications to it hereunder by electronic communications pursuant to procedures approved by it; provided that approval of such procedures may be limited to particular notices or communications.

(c) Any party hereto may change its address or telecopy number for notices and other communications hereunder by notice to the other parties hereto. All notices and other

80

communications given to any party hereto in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement shall be deemed to have been given on the date of receipt.

Section 12.7. Setoff. Each Borrower agrees that, in addition to (and without limitation of) any right of setoff, banker's lien or counterclaim a Lender may otherwise have, each Lender (and any Affiliate thereof through which any Loan is made) shall be entitled, at its option, to offset balances (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) held by it for the account of such Borrower at any of such Lender's offices, in dollars or in any other currency, against any amount payable by such Borrower to such Lender under this Agreement or such Lender's Note which is not paid when due (regardless of whether such balances are then due to such Borrower), in which case it shall promptly notify such Borrower (or the Parent, on behalf of a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) and the Administrative Agent thereof; provided that such Lender's failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity thereof or place such Lender under any liability to such Borrower. Payments by each Borrower hereunder shall be made without setoff or counterclaim.

Section 12.8. JURISDICTION; JURY WAIVER; IMMUNITIES. (A) EACH BORROWER HEREBY IRREVOCABLY SUBMITS TO THE JURISDICTION OF ANY NEW YORK STATE OR UNITED STATES FEDERAL COURT SITTING IN NEW YORK COUNTY OVER ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE NOTES OR ANY OTHER FACILITY DOCUMENT OR ANY LETTER OF CREDIT, AND EACH BORROWER HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AGREES THAT ALL CLAIMS IN RESPECT OF SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING MAY BE HEARD AND DETERMINED IN SUCH NEW YORK STATE OR FEDERAL COURT. EACH BORROWER IRREVOCABLY CONSENTS TO THE SERVICE OF ANY AND ALL PROCESS IN ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING BY THE MAILING OF COPIES OF SUCH PROCESS TO SUCH BORROWER AT THE ADDRESS FOR IT SPECIFIED IN SECTION 12.6. EACH BORROWER AGREES THAT A FINAL JUDGMENT IN ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING SHALL BE CONCLUSIVE AND MAY BE ENFORCED IN OTHER JURISDICTIONS BY SUIT ON THE JUDGMENT OR IN ANY OTHER MANNER PROVIDED BY LAW. EACH BORROWER FURTHER WAIVES ANY OBJECTION TO VENUE IN SUCH STATE AND ANY OBJECTION TO AN ACTION OR PROCEEDING IN SUCH STATE ON THE BASIS OF FORUM NON CONVENIENS. EACH BORROWER FURTHER AGREES THAT ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING BROUGHT AGAINST THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT SHALL BE BROUGHT ONLY IN NEW YORK STATE OR UNITED STATES FEDERAL COURT SITTING IN NEW YORK COUNTY.

(b) Furthermore, each Foreign Subsidiary Borrower hereby agrees that service of all writs, process and summonses in any such action or proceeding brought in the State of New York may be made upon Corporation Service Company, presently located at 80 State Street, 6th Floor, Albany, New York 12207 U.S.A. (the "Process Agent") and each Foreign Subsidiary Borrower hereby confirms and agrees that the Process Agent has been duly and irrevocably appointed as its agent and true and lawful attorney-in-fact in its name, place and stead to accept such service of any and all such writs, process and summonses, and agrees that the failure of the Process Agent to give any notice of any such service of process to such Foreign

81

Subsidiary Borrower (or to any other Person) shall not impair or affect the validity of such service or of any judgment based thereon.

(C) EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS PARAGRAPH.

(d) Nothing in this Section shall affect the right of the Administrative Agent or any Lender to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by law or affect the right of the Administrative Agent or any Lender to bring any action or proceeding against any Borrower or its property in the courts of any other jurisdictions.

(e) To the extent that any Borrower has or hereafter may acquire any immunity from jurisdiction of any court or from any legal process (whether from service or notice, attachment prior to judgment, attachment in aid of execution, execution or otherwise) with respect to itself or its property, such Borrower hereby irrevocably waives such immunity in respect of its obligations under this Agreement and its Notes.

Section 12.9. Table of Contents; Headings. Any table of contents and the headings and captions hereunder are for convenience only and shall not affect the interpretation or construction of this Agreement.

Section 12.10. Severability. The provisions of this Agreement are intended to be severable. If for any reason any provision of this Agreement shall be held invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part in any jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability without in any manner affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other jurisdiction or the remaining provisions hereof in any jurisdiction.

Section 12.11. Authorization of Parent. Each Foreign Subsidiary Borrower hereby authorizes the Parent to give on behalf of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower all notices, consents and other communications that may be given by such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower under or in connection with this Agreement or any other Facility Document, and to receive on behalf of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower all notices, consents and other communications that may be given to such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower under or in connection with this Agreement or any other Facility Document (in each case, irrespective of whether or not such notice, consent or other communication is expressly provided elsewhere in this Agreement to be given or

82

received by the Parent on behalf of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower). Such notices, consents and other communications may include Borrowing Requests, notices as to continuations, conversions and prepayments of Loans, notices and demands in connection with Events of Default, and notices and demands in connection with the exercise by the Administrative Agent or any Lender of remedies. Such notices, consents and other communications may be given by or to the Parent in its own name or in the name of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower.

Section 12.12. Integration. The Facility Documents set forth the entire agreement among the parties hereto relating to the transactions contemplated thereby and supersede any prior oral or written statements or agreements with respect to such transactions.

Section 12.13. GOVERNING LAW. THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND INTERPRETED AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

Section 12.14. Confidentiality. (a) Each Lender (in its capacity as Lender and, as applicable, as Swingline Bank and Issuing Bank) and the Administrative Agent agrees (on behalf of itself and each of its Affiliates, directors, officers, employees and representatives) to use reasonable precautions to keep confidential, in accordance with safe and sound banking practices, any non-public information supplied to it by any Borrower pursuant to this Agreement which is identified by such Borrower (or by the Parent on behalf of the applicable Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) as being confidential at the time the same is delivered to the Lenders or the Administrative Agent, provided that nothing herein shall limit the disclosure of any such information (a) to its Affiliates or any of its or such Affiliates' directors, officers, employees and agents, including accountants, legal counsel and other advisors (it being understood that the Persons to whom such disclosure is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Information and instructed to keep such Information confidential), (b) to the extent requested by any regulatory authority, (c) to the extent required by applicable laws or regulations or by any subpoena or similar legal process, (d) to any other party to this Agreement,
(e) in connection with the exercise of any remedies hereunder or any suit, action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or the enforcement of rights hereunder, (f) subject to an agreement containing provisions substantially the same as those of this Section, to (i) any assignee of or participant in, or any prospective assignee of or participant in, any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement or (ii) any actual or prospective counterparty (or its advisors) to any swap or derivative transaction relating to any Borrower and its obligations, (g) with the consent of the Parent or (h) to the extent such Information (i) becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section or (ii) becomes available to the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank, the Swingline Bank or any Lender on a nonconfidential basis from a source other than the Borrowers; provided further that in no event shall the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank, the Swingline Bank or any Lender be obligated or required to return any materials furnished by any Borrower.

83

(b) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, each Lender (in its capacity as Lender and, as applicable, as Swingline Bank and Issuing Bank) and the Administrative Agent (and such Lender's or Administrative Agent's employees, representatives or other agents, as the case may be) may disclose to any and all persons, without limitation of any kind, the tax treatment and tax structure of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and all materials of any kind (including opinions or other tax analyses) related to such tax treatment and tax structure, except that (i) this sentence shall not apply to the extent that nondisclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with the securities laws, and (ii) this sentence shall not permit any Person to reveal the identity of the Parent or any of its Subsidiaries.

Section 12.15. Treatment of Certain Information. Each Borrower (a) acknowledges that services may be offered or provided to it (in connection with this Agreement or otherwise) by each Lender or by one or more of their respective subsidiaries or Affiliates and (b) acknowledges that information delivered to each Lender by any Borrower (or by the Parent on behalf of a Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) may be provided to each such subsidiary and Affiliate.

Section 12.16. Judgment Currency. (a) The obligations hereunder of any Borrower to make payments in dollars or in a particular Foreign Currency, as the case may be (the "Obligation Currency"), shall not be discharged or satisfied by any tender or recovery pursuant to any judgment expressed in or converted into any currency other than the Obligation Currency, except to the extent that such tender or recovery results in the effective receipt by the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank, the Swingline Bank or a Lender of the full amount of the Obligation Currency expressed to be payable to the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank, the Swingline Bank or such Lender under this Agreement or the other Facility Documents. If, for the purpose of obtaining or enforcing judgment against any Borrower or any Guarantor in any court or in any jurisdiction, it becomes necessary to convert into or from any currency other than the Obligation Currency (such other currency being hereinafter referred to as the "Judgment Currency") an amount due in the Obligation Currency, the conversion shall be made, at the Dollar Equivalent or the Foreign Currency Equivalent (as the case may be) of such amount, in each case, as of the date immediately preceding the day on which the judgment is given (such Business Day being hereinafter referred to as the "Judgment Currency Conversion Date") using the current Exchange Rate as of the Judgment Currency Conversion Date.

(b) If there is a change in the rate of exchange prevailing between the Judgment Currency Conversion Date and the date of actual payment of the amount due, the applicable Borrower, as the case may be, covenants and agrees to pay, or cause to be paid, such additional amounts, if any (but in any event not a lesser amount), as may be necessary to ensure that the amount paid in the Judgment Currency, when converted at the rate of exchange prevailing on the date of payment, will produce the amount of the Obligation Currency which could have been purchased with the amount of Judgment Currency stipulated in the judgment or judicial award at the rate of exchange prevailing on the Judgment Currency Conversion Date.

(c) For purposes of determining the Dollar Equivalent, or the Foreign Currency Equivalent (as the case may be), such amounts shall include any premium and costs payable in connection with the purchase of the Obligation Currency.

84

Section 12.17. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same instrument, and any party hereto may execute this Agreement by signing any such counterpart. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Agreement by telecopy shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement.

Section 12.18. USA PATRIOT Act. Each Lender hereby notifies the Borrowers that pursuant to the requirements of the USA PATRIOT Act (Title III of Pub. L. 107-56 (signed into law October 26, 2001)), such Lender may be required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies the Borrowers, which information includes the name and address of each Borrower and other information that will allow such Lender to identify the Borrowers in accordance with said Act.

Section 12.19. Termination of Existing Credit Agreement. Each Lender that is party as a lender to the Credit Agreement dated as of June 17, 2003 among the Parent, Concord Watch Company, S.A., MWC, the lenders party thereto and JPMCB, as administrative agent, swingline bank and issuing bank, by its execution and delivery of this Agreement hereby (a) waives the requirement in such credit agreement that notice of the termination of the commitments and any prepayment thereunder be provided in advance of the date of such termination or prepayment and (b) agrees that the Borrowers' execution and delivery of this Agreement shall be effective as notice by the borrowers under such credit agreement of the termination of the commitments thereunder.

(Form of Opinion of Timothy F. Michno, Esq.)

December 15, 2005

To each of the Lenders party to the Credit Agreement referred to below and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as Administrative Agent, Swingline Bank, and Issuing Bank

Ladies and Gentlemen:

I have acted as counsel to Movado Group, Inc., a New York corporation (the "Parent Borrower"), in connection with that certain Credit Agreement (the "Credit Agreement") dated as of the date hereof among the Parent Borrower, MGI Luxury Group S.A., a corporation organized under the laws of Switzerland ("MGI"), Movado Watch Company SA, a corporation organized under the laws of Switzerland (together with MGI, the "Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers" and, together with MGI and the Parent Borrower, the "Borrowers"), the Lenders signatory thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as Administrative Agent, as Swingline Bank and as Issuing Bank (the "Agent Bank"). I have also acted as counsel to Movado Retail Group, Inc., a New Jersey corporation ("Movado Retail"), and Movado LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("Movado LLC" and, together with Movado Retail, the "Initial Guarantors" and, together with Movado Retail and the Parent Borrower, the "US Entities"), in connection with the Subsidiary Guarantee[s] by
[each of] the Initial Guarantors in favor of the Lenders and the Agent Bank. Except as otherwise defined herein, all terms used herein and defined in the Credit Agreement shall have the meanings assigned to them therein.

In connection with this opinion, I have examined executed copies of the Facility Documents and such other documents, records, agreements and certificates as I have deemed appropriate. I have also reviewed such matters of law as I have considered relevant for the purpose of this opinion.

Based upon the foregoing, I am of the opinion that:

1. Each of the Parent Borrower and Movado Retail is a corporation duly incorporated, validity existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of New York (in the case of the Parent Borrower) or New Jersey (in the case of Movado Retail); and each of them has the corporate power and authority to own its assets and to transact the business in which it is now engaged and is duly qualified as a foreign corporation and in good standing under the laws of each other jurisdiction in which the failure to be so qualified would have a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition or operations of the Parent Borrower and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole.


2. Movado LLC is a limited liability company duly formed, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware; and it has the limited liability company power and authority to own its assets and to transact the business in which it is now engaged and is duly qualified as a foreign limited liability company and in good standing under the laws of each other jurisdiction in which the failure to be so qualified would have a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition or operations of the Parent Borrower and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole.

3. Each Facility Document has been duly executed and delivered by each US Entity which is a party to it. Each Facility Document constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of each US Entity which is a party to it, enforceable against that US Entity in accordance with its terms.

4. The execution, delivery and performance by each US Entity (and in the case of clauses (d), (e) and (f) below, each Foreign Subsidiary Borrower) of the Facility Documents to which it is a party are within its power and authority and have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate or limited liability company action, as applicable, and do not: (a) require any consent or approval of its stockholders; (b) contravene its charter, by-laws or limited liability company agreement, as applicable; (c) violate any provision of, or require any filing, registration, consent or approval under, any law (other than the law of the State of New York and Federal law of the United States), rule, regulation (including without limitation Regulation U), order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award presently in effect having applicability to any US Entity; (d) result in a breach of or constitute a default or require any consent under any indenture or loan or credit agreement or any other agreement, lease or instrument to which such Borrower or such Initial Guarantor is a party or by which it or its properties may be bound or affected; (e) result in, or require, the creation or imposition of any Lien upon or with respect to any of the properties now owned or hereafter acquired by such Borrower or such Initial Guarantor; or (f) cause the Parent Borrower or any Subsidiary to be in default under any such law, rule, regulation, order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award or any such indenture, agreement, lease or instrument.

5. To the best of my knowledge (after due inquiry), there are no pending or threatened actions, suits or proceedings against or affecting the Parent Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries before any court, governmental agency or arbitrator, which would, in any one case or in the aggregate, materially adversely affect the financial condition, operations, properties or business of the Parent Borrower and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole or the ability of any US Entity to perform its obligations under the Facility Documents to which is a party.

The opinions expressed herein are solely for your benefit in connection with the transactions referred to in the Credit Agreement and may not be circulated to, or relied upon by, any other Person, except that it may be circulated to any prospective Lender in accordance with the Credit Agreement and may be relied upon by any Person who, in the future, becomes a Lender; provided that each Lender may provide this opinion (i) to bank examiners and other regulatory authorities should they so request or in connection with their normal examination, (ii) to its professional advisers, (iii) pursuant to an order or legal process of any court or governmental agency, or (iv) in connection with any legal action to which such Lender is a party

arising out of the transactions contemplated by the Credit Agreement. The opinions expressed herein are as of the date hereof, and I make no undertaking to supplement such opinions as facts and circumstances come to my attention or changes in law occur which could affect such opinions.

(Form of Opinion of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP)

December 15, 2005

To the Lenders party to the
Credit Agreement referred to below
and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Agent

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We have acted as special counsel to Movado Group, Inc., a New York corporation (the "Parent Borrower"), MGI Luxury Group S.A., a corporation organized under the laws of Switzerland ("MGI"), Movado Watch Company SA, a corporation organized under the laws of Switzerland ("Movado S.A." and, together with MGI, the "Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers"), Movado Retail Group Inc., a New Jersey corporation ("Movado Retail"), and Movado LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("Movado LLC" and, together with Movado Retail, the Parent Borrower and the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers, the "Principal Parties"), in connection with the Credit Agreement (the "Credit Agreement") dated as of the date hereof, among the Parent Borrower, the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers, the financial institutions listed on the signature pages of the Credit Agreement (the "Lenders") and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Administrative Agent, as Swingline Bank and as Issuing Bank (the "Agent Bank"). This opinion is being furnished to you at the request of the Parent Borrower as provided by Section 5.1(i) of the Credit Agreement. Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined have the respective meanings given those terms in the Credit Agreement.


In connection with this opinion, we have examined originals, or copies certified or otherwise identified to our satisfaction, of the following documents, each dated as of the date of this letter (collectively, the "Documents"):

1. the Credit Agreement;

2. the Syndicated Loan Notes issued on the date hereof;

3. the Subsidiary Guarantee by Movado Retail in favor of the Lenders and the Agent Bank (the "Retail Guarantee");

4. the Subsidiary Guarantee by Movado LLC in favor of the Lenders and the Agent Bank (the "LLC Guarantee" and, together with the Retail Guarantee, the "Initial Subsidiary Guarantees"); and

5. the Parent Guarantee by the Parent Borrower in favor of the Lenders and the Agent Bank (the "Parent Guarantee").

In our examination of the documents referred to above, we have assumed, without independent investigation, the genuineness of all signatures, the legal capacity of all individuals who have executed any of the documents reviewed by us, the authenticity of all documents (including the Documents) submitted to us as originals, the conformity to the originals of all documents submitted to us as certified, photostatic, reproduced or conformed copies of valid existing agreements or other documents, the authenticity of the latter documents and that the statements regarding matters of fact in the certificates, records, agreements, instruments and documents that we have examined are accurate and complete. We have also assumed, without independent investigation, the enforceability of the Documents against each party other than the Principal Parties.

In addition, in the case of each Principal Party, we have assumed, without independent investigation, that (i) such Principal Party is validly existing and in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of organization, (ii) such Principal Party has all necessary

-2-

corporate or limited liability company power, as applicable, and authority to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under each Document to which it is a party, (iii) the execution, delivery and performance of each Document have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate or limited liability company action, as applicable, and do not violate its charter or other organizational documents or the laws of its jurisdiction of organization (except New York law) and (iv) each Document has been duly executed and delivered by it under the laws of its jurisdiction of organization.

Based upon the foregoing, and subject to the assumptions, exceptions, and qualifications stated below, we are of the opinion that:

1. Each Document to which any Principal Party is a party is a legal, valid and binding obligation of such Principal Party, enforceable against such Principal Party in accordance with its terms.

2. The execution and delivery by each Principal Party of each of the Documents to which it is a party and the performance by such Principal Party of its obligations under the Documents do not violate or result in a breach of or default under any Covered Law (as defined below) (including Regulations U or X of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System of the United States).

3. No authorizations or approvals of, and no filings with, any governmental or regulatory authority or agency are necessary under any Covered Law for the execution, delivery or performance by any Principal Party of the Documents to which it is a party.

This opinion is subject to the following assumptions, exceptions and qualifications:

(a) The enforceability of the Documents may be: (i) subject to

-3-

bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, fraudulent conveyance or transfer, moratorium or similar laws affecting creditors' rights generally; and (ii) subject to general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforceability is considered in a proceeding at law or in equity).

(b) We express no opinion as to: (i) the enforceability of any provisions in the Initial Subsidiary Guarantees and the Parent Guarantee (the "Guarantees") purporting to preserve and maintain the liability of any party to the Guarantees despite the fact that the guarantied debt is unenforceable due to illegality; (ii) the enforceability of any provisions contained in the Documents that purport to establish (or may be construed to establish) evidentiary standards; (iii) the enforceability of forum selection clauses in the federal courts; (iv) the enforceability of any provisions contained in the Documents that purport to relinquish a Principal Party's right to a trial by jury or to waive immunity; or (v) judgment currency clauses to the extent they are inconsistent with Section 27(b) of the N.Y. Judiciary Law.

This opinion is limited to the laws of the State of New York and the federal laws of the United States of America that, in each case, in our experience, are normally applicable to credit transactions of the type contemplated by the Credit Agreement (collectively, the "Covered Laws"). This opinion is rendered only with respect to the laws, and the rules, regulations and orders under those laws, that are currently in effect.

This opinion is furnished by us solely for your benefit in connection with the transactions referred to in the Credit Agreement and may not be circulated to, or relied upon by, any other Person, except that it may be circulated to any prospective Lender in accordance with the Credit Agreement and may be relied upon by any Person who, in the future, becomes a Lender; provided that each Lender may provide a copy of this opinion (i) to bank examiners and other regulatory authorities should they so request or in connection with their normal

-4-

examination, (ii) to the professional advisers of any Lender, (iii) pursuant to an order or legal process of any court or governmental agency, or (iv) in connection with any legal action to which such Lender is a party arising out of the transactions contemplated by the Credit Agreement.

MOVADO GROUP, INC., MOVADO WATCH COMPANY AND MGI LUXURY GROUP S. A. AS
BORROWERS - CREDIT AGREEMENT

Ladies and Gentlemen

We have acted as special Swiss counsel to MGI Luxury Group S.A. and Movado Watch Company SA (the SWISS OBLIGORS) in connection with the Credit Agreement dated as of the date hereof (the AGREEMENT) between Movado Group, Inc. (the PARENT), the Swiss Obligors, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Administrative Agent, as Swingline Bank and as Issuing Bank (the AGENT), and the Lenders specified therein. As such counsel, we have been requested to give our opinion as to certain legal matters relating to the Agreement.

Capitalized terms used herein shall have the meaning attributed to them in the Agreement unless otherwise defined herein.

I. BASIS OF OPINION

This opinion is confined to and given on the basis of the laws of Switzerland in force at the date hereof as currently applied by the Swiss courts. In the absence of explicit statutory law or established case law, we base our opinion solely on our independent professional judgement. This opinion is also confined to:

(i) the matters stated herein and is not to be read as extending, by implication or otherwise, to any agreement or document referred to in the Agreement (other than listed below) or any other matter; and

(ii) the documents listed below.

For purposes of this opinion we have not conducted any due diligence or similar investigation as to factual circumstances, which are or may be referred to in the documents below, and we express no opinion as to the accuracy of representations and warranties of facts set out in such documents or the factual background assumed therein.

For the purpose of giving this opinion, we have only examined originals or copies of the following documents (collectively the DOCUMENTS):

- MGI Luxury Group S.A., dated as of December 15, 2005;

- Movado Watch Company SA, dated as of December 15, 2005;

(collectively the SHAREHOLDERS' RESOLUTIONS).

No documents have been reviewed by us in connection with this opinion other than those listed above. Accordingly, we shall limit our opinion to the above Documents and their legal implications on the Agreement under Swiss law.

In this opinion, Swiss legal concepts are expressed in English terms and not in their original language. These concepts may not be identical to the concepts described by the same English terms as they exist under the laws of other jurisdictions.

II. ASSUMPTIONS

In rendering the opinion below, we have assumed:

(a) the conformity to the original Documents of all Documents produced to us as copies, fax copies or via e-mail, and that the original was executed in the manner appearing on the copy;

(b) the genuineness and authenticity of the signatures on all original Documents or copies thereof which we have examined, and the accuracy of all factual information contained in, or material statements given in connection with, the Documents;

(c) the Agreement is within the capacity and power of, and has been validly authorized, executed and delivered by and is binding on all parties thereto other than the Swiss Obligors;

(d) the performance by all parties to the Agreement of all obligations by which they are respectively bound under the Agreement and the compliance of all the parties to the Agreement with all matters of validity and enforceability under any law other than the laws of Switzerland;

-2-

(e) that the Agreement will be valid, binding and enforceable under the law of the State of New York by which it is expressed to be governed and that the choice of the law of the State of New York and of the jurisdiction of the New York state or United States federal courts provided in the Agreement is valid under the law of the State of New York;

(f) that as far as any obligation under the Agreement is required to be performed in any jurisdiction outside of Switzerland, its performance will not be illegal or unenforceable by virtue of the laws of such jurisdiction;

(g) that, except as expressly opined upon herein, all representations and warranties made by any one of the parties of the Agreement are true and accurate;

(h) that the Excerpts and the Articles are correct, complete and up-to-date;

(i) that all parties entered into the Agreement for bona fide commercial reasons and on arm's length terms, and that none of the directors or officers of the respective party has or had a conflict of interest with such party in respect of the Documents that would preclude him from validly representing (or granting a power of attorney in respect of the Documents for) the respective party;

(j) that the Board Resolutions (i) have been duly resolved in meetings duly convened and otherwise in the manner set forth therein, and (ii) have not been rescinded or amended and are in full force and effect.

III. OPINION

Based on the foregoing and subject to the qualifications set out below, we are of the opinion that as of the date hereof:

1. Each of the Swiss Obligors is a corporation duly incorporated and validly existing under the laws of Switzerland with all requisite corporate power and authority to own its properties and to carry on its business as presently conducted.

2. Each of the Swiss Obligors has the corporate power to enter into the Agreement, and the Agreement has been duly authorized by each of the Swiss Obligors.

3. The execution, delivery and performance by the Swiss Obligors of the Agreement do not violate any provision of the Articles or any laws of Switzerland applicable to the Swiss Obligors.

4. The obligations under the Agreement will constitute direct and unsubordinated obligations of the Swiss Obligors and will at least rank pari passu with any other unsecured, unsubordinated obligations of the Swiss Obligors (whether actual or contingent) outstanding from time to time, subject to any statutory preferences under applicable law.

5. The choice of the law of the State of New York as the governing law of the Agreement is a valid choice of law under the laws of Switzerland and in any action brought before a court of competent jurisdiction in Switzerland, the law of the State of New York would be recognized and applied by such court to all issues for which under the conflict of laws rules of Switzerland the proper or governing law of a contract is applicable provided, however, that a Swiss court would apply procedural rules.

6. The submission by the Swiss Obligors to the jurisdiction of the New York state courts and the United States federal courts contained in the Agreement is valid and legally binding on the Swiss Obligors under the laws of Switzerland.

-3-

7. The courts of Switzerland will recognise as valid, and will enforce, any final and non-appealable civil judgment for a monetary claim obtained in a New York state court or a United States federal court against the Swiss Obligors.

8. The designation by the Swiss Obligors of Corporation Service Company as agent to receive service of process in New York state or United States federal courts on their behalf is valid and binding under the laws of Switzerland, as long as Corporation Service Company is properly acting as agent for service of process and its mandate has not been revoked.

9. The Swiss Obligors are not required by law in relation to any sums payable under the Agreement or the payment of fees by the Swiss Obligors to the Agent to make, or cause to be made, any deduction or withholding for or on account of any taxes imposed or levied by or on behalf of Switzerland or any political subdivision or any taxing authority thereof or therein.

10. No Swiss stamp duty on the issuance of securities (Emissionsabgabe) and no Swiss stamp duty on the turnover of securities (Umsatzabgabe) will be payable to any governmental authority of Switzerland in connection with the execution and delivery of the Agreement and the making available of the facility in accordance therewith.

11. No Swiss Obligor has any immunity from suit or proceedings or the enforcement of any judgment (whether on the grounds of sovereign immunity or otherwise) under the laws of Switzerland.

12. To ensure the validity and enforceability or admissibility in evidence of the Agreement, it is not necessary that the Agreement be approved, authorized, filed or recorded with any governmental, administrative or other authority or court in Switzerland.

13. It is not necessary under Swiss law (i) in order to be entitled the full access as plaintiff to the courts of competent jurisdiction of Switzerland or any political subdivision thereof for the enforcement of any right, power or remedy accorded in, under or in connection with the Agreement, or
(ii) by reason only of the execution, delivery or performance of the Agreement, that any of the Lenders or the Agent should be licensed, qualified or entitled to carry on business in Switzerland.

14. None of the Lenders or the Agent will be deemed to be resident, domiciled or carrying on business in Switzerland by reason only of the execution, delivery, performance and/or enforcement of the Agreement.

IV. QUALIFICATIONS

The above opinions are subject to the following qualifications:

(a) We are members of the Zurich bar and do not hold ourselves to be experts in any laws other than the laws of Switzerland. Accordingly, we are opining herein as to Swiss law only and we express no opinion with respect to the applicability thereto, or the effect thereon, of the laws of any other jurisdiction.

(b) Where we refer to enforceability, we only express an opinion as to enforceability under the rules of procedure applicable in Switzerland. Enforceability of the Agreement may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganisation or similar laws affecting creditors and secured parties in general (including, without limitation, provisions relating to voidable preferences), laws or equitable principles of general application (including, but not limited to, the abuse of rights (Rechtsmissbrauch) and the principle of good faith (Grundsatz von Treu und Glauben)), and public policy, as defined in Art. 17-19 of the Swiss Private International Law Act of December 18, 1987, as amended (the PRIVATE INTERNATIONAL LAW ACT).

-4-

Enforcement before the courts of Switzerland will in any event be subject to:

(i) the nature of the remedies available in the Swiss courts (and nothing in this opinion must be taken as indicating that specific performance (other than for the payment of a sum of money) or injunctive relief would be available as remedies for the enforcement of such obligations); and

(ii) the acceptance of such courts of jurisdiction and the power of such courts to stay proceedings if concurrent proceedings are being brought elsewhere.

(c) Claims may become barred under statutes of limitation or prescription, or may be or become subject to available defences such as set-off, counterclaim, misrepresentation, material error, duress or fraud. Further, limitations may apply with respect to any indemnification and contribution undertakings by the Swiss Obligors if a court considers any act of the indemnified person as wilful or negligent, and an obligation to pay an amount may be unenforceable if the amount is held to constitute an excessive penalty (such as exemplary or punitive damages).

(d) The enforceability in Switzerland of a foreign judgment rendered against any Swiss Obligor is subject to the limitations set forth in
(x) the Convention on Jurisdiction and Enforcement of Judgements in Civil and Commercial Matters of September 16, 1988 (the LUGANO CONVENTION), (y) such other international treaties under which Switzerland is bound, and (z) the Private International Law Act. In particular, and without limitation to the foregoing, a judgment rendered by a foreign court may only be enforced in Switzerland if:

(i) (in case of (y) and (z) and, in certain exceptional cases, (x)) the foreign court had jurisdiction;

(ii) the judgment of such foreign court has become final and non-appealable, or, in the case of (x), has become enforceable at an earlier stage;

(iii) the court procedures leading to the judgment followed the principles of due process of law, including proper service of process; and

(iv) the judgment of the foreign court on its merits does not violate Swiss law principles of public policy.

In addition, enforceability of a judgment by a non-Swiss court in Switzerland may be limited if the Company can demonstrate that it was not effectively served with process.

(e) Enforcement claim or court judgment under Swiss debt collection or bankruptcy proceedings may only be made in Swiss francs and the foreign currency amount must accordingly be converted into Swiss francs at the rate obtained, with respect to the enforcing creditor, on (i) the date of instituting the enforcement proceedings or (ii) the date of the filing for the continuation of the bankruptcy procedure (Fortsetzungsbegehren) and, with respect to non-enforcing creditors, at the rate obtained at the time of the adjudication of bankruptcy (Konkurseroffnung).

(f) Section 4.5 of the Agreement (Tax gross-up) provides for the gross-up of payments to the extent withholding tax is imposed on payments of a Swiss Obligor pursuant to the terms of the Agreement. This obligation may violate Article 14 of the Swiss Federal Withholding Tax Act of October 13, 1965 (the WITHHOLDING TAX ACT) which stipulates that (i) Swiss withholding tax (Verrechnungssteuer) to be withheld from any payment must be charged to the recipient of the payment, and (ii) contradictory agreements are null and void as to this issue. The Swiss Federal Tax Administration proclaimed that gross-up provisions are compliant with Article 14 of the Withholding Tax Act if (i) the obligor promises a minimum interest rate in the interest rate clause of the agreement which, under the condition of imposition of Swiss withholding tax, is to be adjusted in correspondence with the tax withheld, (ii) and, hence, Swiss withholding tax indeed is calculated on the basis of the

-5-

grossed-up net amount received by the creditor, (iii) the obligor promises the creditor to provide sufficient documentation potentially enabling the creditor to recover Swiss withholding tax, and (iv) the parties could in good faith assume at the time of entering into the agreement that payments under the agreement were not subject to Swiss withholding tax. A Swiss court ruling on the validity or enforceability of the said gross-up provisions will, however, not be bound by the Swiss Federal Tax Administration's interpretation of Article 14 of the Withholding Tax Act.

(g) The opinions set forth in Sections III. 9. and III. 10. above are subject to the qualification that the Swiss Obligors at all times comply with the ten and twenty non-bank rules pursuant to the present practice of the Swiss Federal Tax Administration.

(h) The enforcement of any guarantee, indemnity or other obligation of any Swiss Obligor for, or with respect to, any obligation of any other obligor may be limited to the freely disposable shareholders' equity of such Swiss Obligor. Such freely disposable shareholder equity shall be determined in accordance with Swiss law and Swiss accounting principles and shall correspond to the amount of the relevant Swiss Obligor's total shareholder equity less the total of (i) its aggregate share capital and (ii) its statutory reserves (including reserves for its own shares and revaluations as well as paid-in capital surplus) at the time of the start of the proceedings for enforcement. In addition, Swiss withholding tax of 35 percent may be levied on payments under a guarantee, indemnity or other obligation by a Swiss Obligor for, or with respect to, any obligation of any other obligor if the Swiss Federal Tax Administration deems such payment a dividend or similar distribution.

(i) We express no opinion as to the validity, binding effect and enforceability of the irrevocability of any power of attorney or appointment of an agent if such power of attorney or appointment has been revoked.

(j) Further, we express no opinion as to banking regulatory matters or as to any commercial, accounting, calculating, auditing or other non-legal matter. Except as expressed in opinions III. 9. and III. 10. above, we express no opinion as to tax matters.

(k) A determination, calculation or certificate as to any matter may be held by a Swiss court not to be final, conclusive or binding if such determination, calculation or certification were shown to have an unreasonable, incorrect or arbitrary basis or not to have been given or made in good faith.

* * *

We have issued this opinion as of the date hereof and we assume no obligation to advise you of any changes that are made or brought to our attention hereafter.

This opinion may be relied upon by you in your respective capacity set forth in the Agreement in connection with the matters set forth herein. Without our prior written consent, it may not be furnished or quoted to other persons, and it may not be relied upon by you, in any other capacity or for any other purpose. No other person may rely on this opinion for any purpose. You are requested not to give copies to third parties or otherwise make the contents of this opinion public without our prior written consent; provided that each Lender may provide a copy of this opinion (i) to bank examiners and other regulatory authorities should they so request or in connection with their normal examination, (ii) to the professional advisers of any Lender, (iii) pursuant to an order or legal process of any court or governmental agency, or (iv) in connection with any legal action to which such Lender is a party arising out of the transactions contemplated by the Credit Agreement.

-6-

This opinion is governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of Switzerland. We confirm our understanding that all disputes arising out of or in connection with this opinion shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction by the District Court of Zurich, Switzerland.

Sincerely yours,

HOMBURGER RECHTSANWALTE

EXHIBIT D-1

SUBSIDIARY GUARANTEE

REFERENCE IS HEREBY MADE to the Credit Agreement dated as of December 15, 2005 (which, as the same has heretofore been or may hereafter be amended from time to time, will be called herein the "Credit Agreement") among Movado Group, Inc., a New York corporation (the "Parent"), Movado Watch Company SA ("MWC"), MGI Luxury Group S.A. ("Luxury"), the Lenders party thereto, and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Administrative Agent, as Swingline Bank and as Issuing Bank. All capitalized terms used herein and not defined shall have the respective meanings ascribed to them in the Credit Agreement.

WHEREAS, the Credit Agreement provides for the extension of credit by the Lenders, the Swingline Bank and the

Issuing Bank (all of which, together with the Administrative Agent, will be called herein the "Creditors") to the Parent; and

WHEREAS, all the obligations and liabilities (whether now existing or hereafter arising) of the Parent to any or all of the Creditors under the Credit Agreement or any of the other Facility Documents (including without limitation the Parent Guarantee), whether for principal, interest, fees, reimbursement obligations, indemnification obligations, costs of enforcement or otherwise, will be called herein the "Obligations" (for the avoidance of doubt, the term "Obligations" includes any increase in such obligations and liabilities resulting from an increase in the Total Revolving Credit Commitment pursuant to
Section 2.16 of the Credit Agreement); and

WHEREAS, [_____] (the "Guarantor") expects to obtain substantial economic benefit from the extension of credit by the Creditors to the Parent under the Credit Agreement; and

WHEREAS, the execution and delivery of this Subsidiary Guarantee by the Guarantor is required pursuant to the terms of the Credit Agreement;

NOW, THEREFORE, for valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, and to induce the Creditors to extend credit to the Parent under the Facility Documents, the Guarantor hereby agrees with the Creditors as follows:

1. The Guarantor hereby unconditionally guarantees to the Creditors that the Parent will promptly pay, perform and observe all the Obligations, and that all sums stated to be payable in, or which become payable under, the Facility Documents by the Parent will be promptly paid in full when due, whether at stated maturity or earlier by reason of acceleration or otherwise, and, in the case of one or more extensions of time of payment or performance or renewals of any Obligation, that the same will be promptly paid or performed (as the case may be) when due according to such extension or renewal, whether at stated maturity or earlier by reason of acceleration or otherwise, irrespective of the validity, regularity, or enforceability of any of the Facility Documents or any of the Obligations and irrespective of any present or future law or order of any government (whether of right or in fact and whether the Creditors shall have consented thereto) or of any agency thereof purporting to reduce, amend, restructure or otherwise


affect any Obligation of the Parent or other obligor or to vary the terms of payment; provided, however, that the liability of the Guarantor hereunder with respect to the Obligations shall be limited to an aggregate amount equal to the largest amount that would not render such liability subject to avoidance under
Section 548 of the United States Bankruptcy Code or any comparable provisions of any applicable state law.

2. The Guarantor agrees that, as among the Guarantor and the Creditors, the Obligations may be declared to be due and payable for purposes of this Subsidiary Guarantee notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition which may prevent, delay or vitiate any such declaration as against the Parent and that, in the event of any such declaration (or attempted declaration), such Obligations (whether or not due and payable by the Parent) shall forthwith become due and payable by the Guarantor for purposes of this Subsidiary Guarantee. The Guarantor further guarantees that all payments made by the Parent to the Creditors of any Obligation will, when made, be final and agrees that if any such payment is recovered from, or repaid by, any Creditor in whole or in part in any bankruptcy, insolvency or similar proceeding instituted by or against the Parent, this Subsidiary Guarantee shall continue to be fully applicable to such Obligation to the same extent as though the payment so recovered or repaid had never been originally made on such Obligation.

3. This Subsidiary Guarantee is a guaranty of payment and not of collection only and shall apply to all Obligations whenever arising.

4. The Guarantor hereby consents that from time to time, without notice to or further consent of the Guarantor, the payment, performance or observance of any or all of the Obligations may be waived or the time of payment or performance thereof extended or accelerated, or renewed in whole or in part, or the terms of the Facility Documents or any part thereof may be changed (including, without limitation, an increase or decrease in the Total Revolving Credit Commitment or any Lender's Revolving Credit Commitment or rate of interest thereon) and any collateral therefor may be exchanged, surrendered or otherwise dealt with as the Creditors may determine, and any of the acts mentioned in the Facility Documents may be done, all without affecting the liability of the Guarantor hereunder. The Guarantor hereby waives presentment of any instrument, demand of payment, protest and notice of non-payment or protest thereof or of any exchange, sale, surrender or other handling or disposition of such collateral, and any requirement that any Creditor exhaust any right, power or remedy or proceed against the Parent under the Facility Documents or against any other person under any other guaranty of, or security for, any of the Obligations. The Guarantor hereby further waives any defense whatsoever which might constitute a defense available to, or discharge of, the Parent or a guarantor. No payment by the Guarantor pursuant to any provision hereunder shall entitle the Guarantor, by subrogation to the rights of any Creditor or otherwise, to any payment by the Parent (or out of the property of the Parent) except after payment in full of all sums (including interest, costs and expenses) which may be or become payable by the Parent to the Creditors at any time or from time to time.

5. This Subsidiary Guarantee shall be a continuing guaranty, and any other guarantor, and any other party liable upon or in respect of any Obligation hereby guaranteed, may be released without affecting the liability of the Guarantor hereunder. The liability of the

-2-

Guarantor hereunder shall be joint and several with the liability of any other guarantor or other party upon or in respect of the Obligations.

6. Any Creditor may assign its rights and powers hereunder, with all or any of the Obligations, and, in the event of such assignment, the assignee hereof or of such rights and powers, shall have the same rights and remedies as if originally named herein. The Guarantor may not assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Subsidiary Guarantee without the written approval of all the Lenders (and any such assignment or transfer that is attempted without such consent shall be void).

7. Notice of acceptance of this Subsidiary Guarantee and of the incurring of any and all of the Obligations of the Parent pursuant to the Facility Documents is hereby waived. This Subsidiary Guarantee and all rights, obligations and liabilities arising hereunder shall be governed by and construed according to the law of the State of New York. Unless the context otherwise requires, all terms used herein which are defined in the Uniform Commercial Code shall have the meanings therein stated.

8. The Guarantor agrees that, in addition to (and without limitation of) any right of setoff, banker's lien or counterclaim any Creditor may otherwise have, each of the Creditors shall be entitled, at its option, to set off and apply balances (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) held by it for account of the Guarantor at any of its offices in dollars or in any other currency, against any amounts owing hereunder that are not paid when due (regardless of whether such balances are then due to the Guarantor), in which case it shall promptly notify the Guarantor thereof; provided, however, that any failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity thereof.

9. No provision of this Subsidiary Guarantee may be modified or waived without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent and the Required Lenders (or, to the extent required by the Credit Agreement, all Lenders).

10. Without limiting the rights of any Creditor under any other agreement, any financial accommodation (including, without limitation, interest accruing at the agreed to contract rate after the commencement of any bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding) extended by the Guarantor to or for the account of the Parent, or in respect of which the Parent may be liable to the Guarantor in any capacity, is hereby subordinated to all the Obligations, and such financial accommodation of the Guarantor to the Parent, if the Administrative Agent so requests, shall be collected, enforced and received by the Guarantor as trustee for the Creditors and be paid over to the Administrative Agent on account of the Obligations but without reducing or affecting in any manner the liability of the Guarantor, under the other provisions of this Subsidiary Guarantee.

11. The Guarantor hereby agrees that if any Subsidiary Guarantor party to any other Subsidiary Guarantee shall become an Excess Funding Guarantor (as defined below) by reason of the payment by such Guarantor of any of the Obligations guaranteed thereunder and hereunder (the "Guaranteed Obligations"), then the Guarantor shall, on demand of such Excess Funding Guarantor (but subject to the next sentence), pay to such Excess Funding Guarantor an amount equal to the Guarantor's Pro Rata Share (as defined below and determined, for this

-3-

purpose, without reference to the properties, debts and liabilities of such Excess Funding Guarantor) of the Excess Payment (as defined below) in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations. The payment obligation of the Guarantor to any Excess Funding Guarantor under this paragraph shall be subordinate and subject in right of payment to the prior payment in full of the obligations of each Subsidiary Guarantor under the Subsidiary Guarantee to which it is a party and no Excess Funding Guarantor shall exercise any right or remedy with respect to such excess until payment and satisfaction in full of all of such obligations. For purposes of this paragraph, (i) "Excess Funding Guarantor" means, in respect of any Guaranteed Obligations, any Subsidiary Guarantor that has paid an amount in excess of its Pro Rata Share of such Guaranteed Obligations, (ii) "Excess Payment" means, in respect of any Guaranteed Obligations, the amount paid by an Excess Funding Guarantor in excess of its Pro Rata Share of such Guaranteed Obligations and (iii) "Pro Rata Share" means, for any Subsidiary Guarantor, the ratio (expressed as a percentage) of (x) the amount by which the aggregate fair saleable value of all properties of such Subsidiary Guarantor (excluding any shares of stock or other equity interest of any other Subsidiary Guarantor) exceeds the amount of all the debts and liabilities of such Subsidiary Guarantor (including contingent, subordinated, unmatured and unliquidated liabilities, but excluding the obligations of such Subsidiary Guarantor hereunder and any obligations of any other Subsidiary Guarantor that have been Guaranteed by such Subsidiary Guarantor) to (y) the amount by which the aggregate fair saleable value of all properties of the Parent and all of the Subsidiary Guarantors exceeds the amount of all the debts and liabilities (including contingent, subordinated, unmatured and unliquidated liabilities, but excluding the obligations of the Obligors hereunder and under the other Loan Documents) of all of the Subsidiary Guarantors, determined (A) with respect to any Subsidiary Guarantor that is a party hereto on the Closing Date, as of the Closing Date, and (B) with respect to any other Subsidiary Guarantor, as of the date such Subsidiary Guarantor becomes a Subsidiary Guarantor under a Subsidiary Guarantee.

12. The Guarantor hereby irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction of any New York State or Federal court sitting in New York City in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Subsidiary Guarantee, and the Guarantor hereby irrevocably agrees that all claims in respect of such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in such New York State or Federal court. The Guarantor irrevocably consents to the service of any and all process in any such action or proceeding by the mailing of copies of such process to the Guarantor at its address specified on the signature page hereof. The Guarantor agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law. Nothing in this paragraph shall affect the rights of the Creditors to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by law or affect the rights of the Creditors to bring any action or proceeding against the Guarantor or any of its property in the courts of any other jurisdiction. To the extent that the Guarantor has or hereafter may acquire any immunity from jurisdiction of any court or from any legal process (whether from service or notice, attachment prior to judgment, attachment in aid of execution, execution or otherwise) with respect to itself or its property, the Guarantor hereby irrevocably waives such immunity in respect of its Obligations under this Subsidiary Guarantee. The Guarantor hereby expressly waives any and every right to a trial by jury in any action on or related to this Subsidiary Guarantee, the Obligations or the enforcement of either or all of the same, and does further expressly waive any and every right to interpose any counterclaim in any such action or proceeding. To the extent permitted by applicable law, the Guarantor shall not assert, and the Guarantor hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee, on any theory of liability, for

-4-

special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Subsidiary Guarantee, any other Facility Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, any Loan or Letter of Credit or the use of the proceeds thereof. The Guarantor agrees to reimburse the Creditors on demand for all reasonable and documented costs, expenses, and charges (including, without limitation, reasonable and documented attorneys' fees) incurred by the Administrative Agent or the Lenders in connection with any enforcement of this Subsidiary Guarantee.

13. The rights, powers and remedies granted to the Creditors herein shall be cumulative and in addition to any rights, powers and remedies to which the Creditors may be entitled either by operation of law or pursuant to the Facility Documents or any other document or instrument delivered or from time to time to be delivered to the Administrative Agent or any Lender in connection with the Facility Documents.

14. When all Obligations shall have been paid in full (other than contingent obligations that survive the termination of the Credit Agreement) and the Commitments and L/C Exposures of all the Lenders under the Credit Agreement shall have expired or been terminated, the obligations of the Guarantor under this Subsidiary Guarantee shall terminate; provided that, thereafter the obligations of the Guarantor hereunder shall be automatically reinstated if and to the extent that for any reason any payment by or on behalf of the Parent in respect of the Obligations guaranteed hereunder is rescinded or must be otherwise restored by any holder of such Obligations, whether as a result of any proceedings in bankruptcy or reorganization or otherwise, and the Guarantor agrees that it will indemnify the Administrative Agent and each other Creditor on demand for all reasonable and documented costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable and documented fees and expenses of counsel) incurred by the Administrative Agent or any other Creditor in connection with such rescission or restoration, including any such costs and expenses incurred in defending against any claim alleging that such payment constituted a preference, fraudulent transfer or similar payment under any bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law.

PARENT GUARANTEE

REFERENCE IS HEREBY MADE to the Credit Agreement dated as of December 15, 2005 (which, as the same has heretofore been or may hereafter be amended from time to time, will be called herein the "Credit Agreement") among Movado Group, Inc., a New York corporation (the "Parent"), Movado Watch Company SA ("MWC"), MGI Luxury Group S.A. ("Luxury"), the Lenders party thereto, and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Administrative Agent, as Swingline Bank and as Issuing Bank. All capitalized terms used herein and not defined shall have the respective meanings ascribed to them in the Credit Agreement.

WHEREAS, the Credit Agreement provides for the extension of credit by the Lenders (all of which, together with any domestic or foreign branch or Affiliate thereof through which any Loan is made and the Administrative Agent, will be called herein the "Creditors") to MWC and to Luxury (the "Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers"); and

WHEREAS, all the obligations and liabilities (whether now existing or hereafter arising) of either or both of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers to any or all of the Creditors under the Credit Agreement or any of the other Facility Documents (whether for principal, interest, fees, reimbursement obligations, indemnification obligations, costs of enforcement or otherwise) will be called herein the "Obligations" (for the avoidance of doubt, the term "Obligations" includes any increase in such obligations and liabilities resulting from an increase in the Total Revolving Credit Commitment pursuant to Section 2.16 of the Credit Agreement); and

WHEREAS, the Parent expects to obtain substantial economic benefit from the extension of credit by the Creditors to the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers under the Credit Agreement; and

WHEREAS, the execution and delivery of this Parent Guarantee by the Parent is required pursuant to the terms of the Credit Agreement;

NOW, THEREFORE, for valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, and to induce the Creditors to extend credit to the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers under the Facility Documents, the Parent hereby agrees with the Creditors as follows:

1. The Parent hereby unconditionally guarantees to the Creditors that each Foreign Subsidiary Borrower will promptly pay, perform and observe all the Obligations of such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower, and that all sums stated to be payable in, or which become payable under, the Facility Documents by either or both of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers will be promptly paid in full when due, whether at stated maturity or earlier by reason of acceleration or otherwise, and, in the case of one or more extensions of time of payment or performance or renewals of any Obligation, that the same will be promptly paid or performed (as the case may be) when due according to such extension or renewal, whether at stated maturity or earlier by reason of acceleration or otherwise, irrespective of the validity, regularity, or enforceability of


any of the Facility Documents or any of the Obligations and irrespective of any present or future law or order of any government (whether of right or in fact and whether the Creditors shall have consented thereto) or of any agency thereof purporting to reduce, amend, restructure or otherwise affect any Obligation of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrower or other obligor or to vary the terms of payment.

2. The Parent agrees that, as among the Parent and the Creditors, the Obligations may be declared to be due and payable for purposes of this Parent Guarantee notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition which may prevent, delay or vitiate any such declaration as against either or both of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers and that, in the event of any such declaration (or attempted declaration), such Obligations (whether or not due and payable by either or both of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers) shall forthwith become due and payable by the Parent for purposes of this Parent Guarantee. The Parent further guarantees that all payments made by the Parent to the Creditors of any Obligation will, when made, be final and agrees that if any such payment is recovered from, or repaid by, any Creditor in whole or in part in any bankruptcy, insolvency or similar proceeding instituted by or against either or both of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers, this Parent Guarantee shall continue to be fully applicable to such Obligation to the same extent as though the payment so recovered or repaid had never been originally made on such Obligation.

3. This Parent Guarantee is a guaranty of payment and not of collection only and shall apply to all Obligations whenever arising.

4. The Parent hereby consents that from time to time, without notice to or further consent of the Parent, the payment, performance or observance of any or all of the Obligations may be waived or the time of payment or performance thereof extended or accelerated, or renewed in whole or in part, or the terms of the Facility Documents or any part thereof may be changed (including, without limitation, an increase or decrease in the Foreign Currency Sublimit Dollar Amount, Total Revolving Credit Commitment or any Lender's Revolving Credit Commitment or rate of interest thereon) and any collateral therefor may be exchanged, surrendered or otherwise dealt with as the Creditors may determine, and any of the acts mentioned in the Facility Documents may be done, all without affecting the liability of the Parent hereunder. The Parent hereby waives presentment of any instrument, demand of payment, protest and notice of non-payment or protest thereof or of any exchange, sale, surrender or other handling or disposition of such collateral, and any requirement that any Creditor exhaust any right, power or remedy or proceed against either or both of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers under the Facility Documents or against any other person under any other guaranty of, or security for, any of the Obligations. The Parent hereby further waives any defense whatsoever which might constitute a defense available to, or discharge of, either or both of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers or a guarantor. No payment by the Parent pursuant to any provision hereunder shall entitle the Parent, by subrogation to the rights of any Creditor or otherwise, to any payment by either or both of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers (or out of the property of either or both of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers) except after payment in full of all sums (including interest, costs and expenses) which may be or become payable by such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower to the Creditors at any time or from time to time.

-2-

5. This Parent Guarantee shall be a continuing guaranty, and any other guarantor, and any other party liable upon or in respect of any Obligation hereby guaranteed, may be released without affecting the liability of the Parent hereunder. The liability of the Parent hereunder shall be joint and several with the liability of any other guarantor or other party upon or in respect of the Obligations.

6. Any Creditor may assign its rights and powers hereunder, with all or any of the Obligations, and, in the event of such assignment, the assignee hereof or of such rights and powers, shall have the same rights and remedies as if originally named herein. The Parent may not assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Parent Guarantee without the written approval of all the Lenders (and any such assignment or transfer that is attempted without such consent shall be void).

7. Notice of acceptance of this Parent Guarantee and of the incurring of any and all of the Obligations of either or both of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers pursuant to the Facility Documents is hereby waived. This Parent Guarantee and all rights, obligations and liabilities arising hereunder shall be governed by and construed according to the law of the State of New York. Unless the context otherwise requires, all terms used herein which are defined in the Uniform Commercial Code shall have the meanings therein stated.

8. The Parent agrees that, in addition to (and without limitation of) any right of setoff, banker's lien or counterclaim any Creditor may otherwise have, each of the Creditors shall be entitled, at its option, to set off and apply balances (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) held by it for account of the Parent at any of its offices in dollars or in any other currency, against any amounts owing hereunder that are not paid when due (regardless of whether such balances are then due to the Parent), in which case it shall promptly notify the Parent thereof; provided, however, that any failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity thereof.

9. No provision of this Parent Guarantee may be modified or waived without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent and the Required Lenders (or, to the extent required by the Credit Agreement, all Lenders).

10. Without limiting the rights of any Creditor under any other agreement, any financial accommodation (including, without limitation, interest accruing at the agreed to contract rate after the commencement of any bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding) extended by the Parent to or for the account of either or both of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers, or in respect of which either or both of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers may be liable to the Parent in any capacity, is hereby subordinated to all the Obligations payable by such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower, and such financial accommodation of the Parent to either or both of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers, if the Administrative Agent so requests, shall be collected, enforced and received by the Parent as trustee for the Creditors and be paid over to the Administrative Agent on account of the Obligations payable by such Foreign Subsidiary Borrower but without reducing or affecting in any manner the liability of the Parent, under the other provisions of this Parent Guarantee.

-3-

11. The Parent hereby irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction of any New York State or Federal court sitting in New York City in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Parent Guarantee, and the Parent hereby irrevocably agrees that all claims in respect of such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in such New York State or Federal court. The Parent irrevocably consents to the service of any and all process in any such action or proceeding by the mailing of copies of such process to the Parent at its address specified on the signature page hereof. The Parent agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law. Nothing in this paragraph shall affect the rights of the Creditors to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by law or affect the rights of the Creditors to bring any action or proceeding against the Parent or any of its property in the courts of any other jurisdiction. To the extent that the Parent has or hereafter may acquire any immunity from jurisdiction of any court or from any legal process (whether from service or notice, attachment prior to judgment, attachment in aid of execution, execution or otherwise) with respect to itself or its property, the Parent hereby irrevocably waives such immunity in respect of its Obligations under this Parent Guarantee. The Parent hereby expressly waives any and every right to a trial by jury in any action on or related to this Parent Guarantee, the Obligations or the enforcement of either or all of the same, and does further expressly waive any and every right to interpose any counterclaim in any such action or proceeding. To the extent permitted by applicable law, the Parent shall not assert, and the Parent hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Parent Guarantee, any other Facility Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, any Loan or Letter of Credit or the use of the proceeds thereof. The Parent agrees to reimburse the Creditors on demand for all reasonable costs, expenses, and charges (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees) incurred by the Administrative Agent or the Lenders in connection with any enforcement of this Parent Guarantee.

12. The rights, powers and remedies granted to the Creditors herein shall be cumulative and in addition to any rights, powers and remedies to which the Creditors may be entitled either by operation of law or pursuant to the Facility Documents or any other document or instrument delivered or from time to time to be delivered to the Administrative Agent or any Lender in connection with the Facility Documents.

13. When all Obligations shall have been paid in full (other than contingent obligations that survive the termination of the Credit Agreement) and the Commitments and L/C Exposures of all the Lenders under the Credit Agreement shall have expired or been terminated, the obligations of the Parent under this Parent Guarantee shall terminate; provided that, thereafter the obligations of the Parent hereunder shall be automatically reinstated if and to the extent that for any reason any payment by or on behalf of any of the Foreign Subsidiary Borrowers in respect of the Obligations guaranteed hereunder is rescinded or must be otherwise restored by any holder of such Obligations, whether as a result of any proceedings in bankruptcy or reorganization or otherwise, and the Parent agrees that it will indemnify the Administrative Agent and each other Creditor on demand for all reasonable and documented costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable and documented fees and expenses of counsel) incurred by the Administrative Agent or any other Creditor in connection with such rescission or restoration, including any such costs and expenses incurred in defending against any claim

(d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no Borrower shall be entitled to request any Borrowing of Loans that are Loans if the Interest Period requested with respect thereto would end after the Maturity Date.

a.m., London time, three Business Days before a proposed Borrowing. Notwithstanding the immediately preceding sentence, the Administrative Agent agrees that it will (subject to the Authorization Letter) accept from the applicable Borrower a Borrowing Request by telephone by the applicable date and time specified in the immediately preceding sentence, provided that the same is confirmed by such Borrower to the Administrative Agent in writing promptly (and in all events on the same day as such telephone communication).

(b) and (c) above shall be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations therein recorded; provided, however, that the failure of any Lender or the Administrative Agent to maintain such accounts or any error therein shall not in any manner affect the obligations of any Borrower to repay its Loans in accordance with their terms.

(b) Upon at least three Business Days' prior irrevocable written or telecopy notice to the Administrative Agent, the Borrowers may at any time in whole permanently terminate, or from time to time in part permanently reduce, the Revolving Credit Commitments; provided, however, that (i) each partial reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitments shall be an integral multiple of CHF 1,000,000 and in a minimum amount of CHF 3,000,000 and (ii) the Total Revolving Credit Commitment shall not be reduced to an amount that is less than the Aggregate Credit Exposure at the time (after giving effect to any concurrent prepayment of Loans). If the Administrative Agent receives such a notice from the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent shall promptly advise the Lenders thereof.

(c) Each reduction in the Revolving Credit Commitments hereunder shall be made ratably among the Lenders in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit Commitments. The Borrowers shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the applicable Lenders, on the date of each termination or reduction, the Commitment Fees on the amount of the Revolving Credit Commitments so terminated or reduced accrued to but excluding the date of such termination or reduction.

Section 2.9. Continuation of Borrowings. (a) The applicable Borrower shall have the right at any time upon prior irrevocable notice to the Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m., London time, three Business Days prior to continuation, to continue any Borrowing for an additional Interest Period or Periods, subject in each case to the following:

(i) each continuation shall be made pro rata among the Lenders in accordance with the respective principal amounts of the Loans comprising the continued Borrowing;

14

(ii) if less than all the outstanding principal amount of any Borrowing shall be continued, then each resulting Borrowing shall satisfy the limitations specified in Sections 2.2(a) and 2.2(b) regarding the principal amount and maximum number of Borrowings; and

(iii) a Borrower may select an Interest Period of a period of less than one month only if necessary to ensure that the current Interest Period or Interest Periods do not end after the Maturity Date.

Each notice pursuant to this Section shall be irrevocable and shall refer to this Agreement and specify (i) the identity of the Borrower of the applicable Borrowing and the amount of the Borrowing that is requested to be continued and (ii) the Interest Period with respect to the applicable Borrowing. No such notice shall be given more than seven Business Days prior to the effective date of the applicable continuation. If no Interest Period is specified in any such notice with respect to any continuation or if notice shall not have been given in accordance with this Section to continue any Borrowing of Loans into a subsequent Interest Period, the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month's duration. The Administrative Agent shall advise the Lenders of any notice given pursuant to this Section and of each Lender's portion of any continued Borrowing.

(b) Notwithstanding any contrary provision contained in this Agreement, upon notice to the Borrowers from the Administrative Agent given at the request of the Required Lenders, after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, each Borrowing (unless such Borrowing is paid at or before the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto) shall at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto be continued as a Borrowing with an Interest Period of one month's duration subject to paragraph (c) of this Section.

Section 2.10. Optional and Mandatory Prepayments. (a) Each Borrower shall have the right at any time and from time to time to prepay any Borrowing, in whole or in part, upon at least three Business Days' prior written or telecopy notice to the Administrative Agent before 11:00 a.m., London time; provided, however, that each partial prepayment shall be in an amount that is an integral multiple of CHF 1,000,000. Notwithstanding the immediately preceding sentence, the Administrative Agent agrees that it will (subject to the Authorization Letter) accept from any Borrower notice by telephone of prepayment by the dates and time specified in the immediately preceding sentence, provided that the same is confirmed by such Borrower to the Administrative Agent in writing promptly (and in all events on the same day as such telephone communication).

(b) Each notice of prepayment shall specify the identity of the Borrower, the prepayment date and the principal amount of each Borrowing (or portion thereof) to be prepaid, shall be irrevocable and shall commit the applicable Borrower to prepay such Borrowing by the amount stated therein on the date stated therein.

(c) In the event of any termination of all the Revolving Credit Commitments, each Borrower shall on the date of such termination repay or prepay all its outstanding Borrowings. In the event of any partial reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitments, then (i) at or prior to the effective date of such reduction, the Administrative Agent shall notify the

15

Borrowers and the Lenders of the Aggregate Credit Exposure after giving effect thereto and (ii) if the Aggregate Credit Exposure would exceed the Total Revolving Credit Commitment after giving effect to such reduction, then on the date of such reduction one or more Borrowers shall prepay its or their respective Borrowings in an amount sufficient to eliminate such excess.

(d) All prepayments under this Section shall be subject to Section 3.4, but shall otherwise be without premium or penalty. All prepayments under this Section shall be accompanied by accrued interest on the principal amount being prepaid to the date of payment.

Section 2.11. Payments. (a) The Borrowers shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder and under any Facility Document (whether of principal, interest, fees, or otherwise) not later than 12:00 noon, London time at the place of payment, on the date when due in immediately available funds, without setoff, defense or counterclaim. Any amounts received after such time on any date may, in the reasonable discretion of the Administrative Agent, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. Each such payment shall be made to the Administrative Agent at such account as the Administrative Agent shall designate to the Borrowers in writing. Each such payment shall be made in Swiss francs, except as otherwise expressly provided herein. The Administrative Agent, or any Lender for whose account any such payment is to be made, may (but shall not be obligated to) debit the amount of any such payment which is not made by such time to any ordinary deposit account of the applicable Borrower with the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, and any Lender so doing shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent; such Lender or (if the Administrative Agent effects such debit) the Administrative Agent shall promptly after effecting such debit give notice thereof to the applicable Borrower as well, provided, however, that a failure to give such notice to the applicable Borrower shall not affect the validity of such debit or place such Lender or the Administrative Agent under any liability to the applicable Borrower. Each Borrower shall, at the time of making each payment under this Agreement or the Notes, specify to the Administrative Agent the principal or other amount payable by the applicable Borrower under this Agreement or the Notes to which such payment is to be applied (and in the event that it fails to so specify, or if a Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing), the Administrative Agent may apply such payment as it may elect in its sole discretion (subject to
Section 10.15)).

(b) Whenever any payment (including principal of or interest on any Borrowing or any Fees or other amounts) hereunder or under any other Facility Document shall become due, or otherwise would occur, on a day that is not a Business Day, such payment may, except as otherwise provided in the definition of Interest Period, be made on the next succeeding Business Day, and such extension of time shall in such case be included in the computation of interest or Fees, if applicable.

Section 2.12. Purpose. Each Borrower shall use the proceeds of the Loans borrowed by it for (i) working capital and general corporate purposes of such Borrower and its Subsidiaries, (ii) purposes of effecting a corporate reorganization of the ownership of such Borrower and/or (iii) purposes of making a repatriation dividend to the Parent.

ARTICLE 3. YIELD PROTECTION; ILLEGALITY; ETC.

Section 3.1. Alternate Rate of Interest. If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a Borrowing:

(a) the Administrative Agent determines (which determination, if made on a reasonable and nondiscriminatory basis, shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the LIBO Rate for such Borrowing for such Interest Period; or

(b) the Administrative Agent is advised by the Required Lenders that the LIBO Rate for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of making or maintaining their Loans included in such Borrowing for such Interest Period;

then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Borrowers and the Lenders by telephone or telecopy as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrowers and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (i) any request to continue any Borrowing shall be ineffective, and any outstanding Borrowing shall be repaid on the last day of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto and (ii) any Borrowing Request shall be ineffective.

Section 3.2. Reserve Requirement; Change in Circumstances. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if after the date of this Agreement any change in applicable law or regulation or in the interpretation or administration thereof by any Governmental Authority charged with the interpretation or administration thereof (whether or not having the force of law) shall change the basis of taxation of payments to any Lender of the principal of or interest on any Loan made by such Lender or any Fees or other amounts payable hereunder (other than changes in respect of taxes imposed on the overall net income of such Lender by the jurisdiction in which such Lender has its principal office or by any political subdivision or taxing authority therein), or shall impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of or credit extended by any Lender or shall impose on such Lender or the London interbank market (or other relevant interbank market) any other condition affecting this Agreement or Loans made by such Lender, and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender of making or maintaining any Loan or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender hereunder in respect thereof (whether of principal, interest or otherwise) by an amount deemed by such Lender to be material, then the applicable Borrower shall pay to such Lender upon demand such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered. There shall be no duplication of payments in respect of Indemnified Taxes and Other Taxes required to be made by this Section and by Section 3.5.

(b) If any Lender shall have determined that the adoption after the date hereof of any law, rule, regulation, agreement or guideline regarding capital adequacy or any change after the date hereof in any law, rule, regulation, agreement or guideline regarding capital adequacy (whether or not such law, rule, regulation, agreement or guideline has been adopted) or

17

in the interpretation or administration thereof by any Governmental Authority charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by any Lender (or any lending office of such Lender) or any Lender's holding company with any request or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) of any Governmental Authority has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender's capital or on the capital of such Lender's holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement or the Loans made to a level below that which such Lender or such Lender's holding company could have achieved but for such applicability, adoption, change or compliance (taking into consideration such Lender's policies and the policies of such Lender's holding company with respect to capital adequacy) by an amount deemed by such Lender to be material, then from time to time the applicable Borrower shall pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such Lender's holding company for any such reduction suffered.

(c) A certificate of a Lender setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or its holding company, as applicable, as specified in paragraph (a) or (b) above shall be delivered to the applicable Borrower and shall (if the determination of such amount or amounts is made on a reasonable and nondiscriminatory basis) be conclusive absent manifest error. The applicable Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate delivered by it within 10 days after receipt by such Borrower of the same.

(d) Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation for any increased costs or reduction in amounts received or receivable or reduction in return on capital shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender's right to demand such compensation; provided, however, that if any Lender demands such compensation in respect of a period prior to the date on which written demand therefor is given to the applicable Borrower, then the obligation of such applicable Borrower to pay such compensation in respect of such period shall be limited to the three months prior to the giving of such written demand, plus (if such demand results from a retroactive change in the aforesaid law, regulation, interpretation, administration, or guideline) the period of such retroactivity; however, such limitation shall not apply in respect of the period from and after the giving of such written demand. The protection of this Section shall be available to each Lender regardless of any possible contention of the invalidity or inapplicability of the law, rule, regulation, agreement, guideline or other change or condition that shall have occurred or been imposed.

Section 3.3. Change in Legality. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if, after the date hereof, any change in any law or regulation or in the interpretation thereof by any Governmental Authority charged with the administration or interpretation thereof shall make it unlawful for any Lender to make or maintain any Loan or to give effect to its obligations as contemplated hereby with respect to any Loan, then, by written notice to the Borrowers and to the Administrative Agent:

(x) such Lender may declare that Loans will not thereafter (for the duration of such unlawfulness) be made by such Lender hereunder (or be continued for additional Interest Periods); and

(y) such Lender may require that all outstanding Loans made by it be repaid by the applicable Borrower or (if the Borrowers and all the Lenders shall mutually agree

18

on a substitute basis for determining the interest rate on the outstanding Loans) shall be continued and bear interest at such substitute rate (for the duration of such unlawfulness), in which event all such Loans shall be so repaid or continued (as applicable) as of the effective date of such notice as provided in paragraph (b) of this Section.

(b) For purposes of this Section, a notice to the applicable Borrower by any Lender shall be effective as to each Loan made by such Lender, if lawful, on the last day of the Interest Period then applicable to such Loan; in all other cases such notice shall be effective on the date of receipt by such Borrower.

Section 3.4. Indemnity. As to the Loans of each Borrower, such Borrower shall indemnify each Lender against any loss or expense that such Lender may sustain or incur as a consequence of (a) any event, other than a default by such Lender in the performance of its obligations hereunder, which results in (i) such Lender receiving or being deemed to receive any amount on account of the principal of any Loan prior to the end of the Interest Period in effect therefor or (ii) any Loan to be made by such Lender (including any Loan to be made pursuant to a continuation under Section 2.9) not being made after notice of such Loan shall have been given by the applicable Borrower hereunder (any of the events referred to in this clause (a) being called a "Breakage Event") or (b) any default in the making of payment or prepayment required to be made hereunder. In the case of any Breakage Event, such loss shall include an amount equal to the excess, as reasonably determined by such Lender, of (i) its cost of obtaining funds for the Loan that is the subject of such Breakage Event for the period from the date of such Breakage Event to the last day of the Interest Period in effect (or that would have been in effect) for such Loan over
(ii) the amount of interest likely to be realized by such Lender in redeploying the funds released or not utilized by reason of such Breakage Event for such period. A certificate of any Lender setting forth any amount or amounts which such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section shall be delivered to the applicable Borrower and shall (if the determination of such amount or amounts is made on a reasonable and nondiscriminatory basis) be conclusive absent manifest error.

Section 3.5. Taxes. (a) Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of any Borrower hereunder shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes except as otherwise required by applicable law; provided that, if any Borrower shall be required by applicable law to deduct any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes from such payments, then (i) the sum payable shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) the Administrative Agent or each Lender (as the case may be) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the applicable Borrower shall make such deductions, and (iii) the applicable Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.

(b) In addition, each Borrower shall pay any Other Taxes payable by it to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.

(c) Each Borrower shall indemnify the Administrative Agent and each Lender within 10 days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes paid by the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, on or with

19

respect to any payment by or on account of any obligation of such Borrower hereunder (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) and any penalties, interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the applicable Borrower by a Lender or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender shall (if there is a reasonable basis for such payment or liability, and if the determination of the amount thereof is made on a reasonable basis) be conclusive absent manifest error.

(d) After payment by a Borrower to the demanding party of the amount demanded pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section, such Borrower shall be entitled to commence a legal proceeding against the applicable Governmental Authority to recover the Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes so paid by the demanding party; and (after such payment by such Borrower to the demanding party) the demanding party shall at the sole expense of such Borrower cooperate with such Borrower as such Borrower may reasonably request with respect to such legal proceeding, provided that the demanding party may do so without material risk of liability.

(e) As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes by a Borrower to a Governmental Authority, such Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent written evidence thereof reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.

(f) If the Administrative Agent or any Lender determines, in its sole discretion, or becomes aware, that it has received, or is entitled to, a refund of any Taxes or Other Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by the applicable Borrower or with respect to which such Borrower has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section, the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, shall pay over to such Borrower (i) such refund or (ii) if the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, has decided to not make a claim for a refund to the relevant Governmental Authority, the amount of any refund the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, would have been entitled, in its reasonable judgment, to receive had it made such claim (but, in each case, only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by such Borrower under this Section with respect to the Taxes or Other Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses of the Administrative Agent or such Lender and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided that each Borrower, upon the request of the Administrative Agent or such Lender, agrees to repay the amount paid over to such Borrower (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to the Administrative Agent or such Lender in the event the Administrative Agent or such Lender is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority.

(g) This Section shall not be construed to require the Administrative Agent or any Lender to make available its tax returns (or any other information relating to its taxes which it deems confidential) to any Borrower or any other Person.

20

Section 3.6. Duty to Mitigate. If (i) any Lender shall request compensation under Section 3.2, (ii) any Lender delivers a notice described in
Section 3.3 or (iii) a Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority on account of any Lender, pursuant to
Section 3.5, then such Lender shall use reasonable efforts (which shall not require such Lender to incur an unreimbursed loss or unreimbursed cost or expense or otherwise take any action inconsistent with its internal policies or legal or regulatory restrictions or suffer any disadvantage or burden deemed by it to be significant) (x) to file any certificate or document reasonably requested in writing by the Borrowers or (y) to assign its rights and delegate and transfer its obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if such filing or assignment would reduce its claims for compensation under Section 3.2 or enable it to withdraw its notice pursuant to
Section 3.3 or would reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 3.5, as the case may be, in the future. The Borrowers hereby agrees to pay all reasonable and documented costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such filing or assignment, delegation and transfer.

Section 3.7. Replacement of Lenders. If any Lender requests compensation under Section 3.2, or if any Lender delivers a notice described in
Section 3.3, or if a Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to
Section 3.5, or if any Lender defaults in its obligation to fund Loans hereunder, then the applicable Borrower may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 11.5, which restrictions shall apply, for purposes of this Section, with reference to a Lender) all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided that (i) if the assignee is not a Lender, the applicable Borrower shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld; and (ii) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans, accrued interest thereon and accrued fees and other amounts (including amounts under Sections 3.2, 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5) payable to it hereunder from the assignee or the applicable Borrower; and (iii) in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 3.2 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 3.3 or 3.5, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments. A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the applicable Borrower to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.

Section 3.8. Certain Additional Costs. If and so long as any Lender is required to comply with reserve assets, liquidity, cash margin or other requirements of any monetary or other authority (including any such requirement imposed by the European Central Bank or the European System of Central Banks, but excluding requirements reflected in the Statutory Reserve Rate) in respect of any of such Lender's Loans, such Lender may require the Borrower to which such Lender has made a Loan to pay, contemporaneously with each payment of interest on each of such Lender's Loans subject to such requirements, additional interest on such Loan at a rate per annum specified by such Lender to be the cost to such Lender of complying with requirements in relation to such Loan. Any additional interest owed pursuant to this Section

21

shall be determined by the relevant Lender, which determination (if made on a reasonable and nondiscriminatory basis) shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and notified to the applicable Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) at least five Business Days before each date on which interest is payable for the relevant Loan, and such additional interest so notified by such Lender shall be payable to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender on each date on which interest is payable for such Loan.

ARTICLE 5. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES.

Each of the Borrowers and the Parent hereby represents and warrants as follows (provided, however, that such representations and warranties by each Borrower and the Parent shall be as to such Borrower or the Parent, as the case may be, and its respective Subsidiaries only):

Section 5.1. Incorporation, Good Standing and Due Qualification. Each of the Parent and its Subsidiaries is duly incorporated or formed, validly existing and (where such concept exists) in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its incorporation or organization, has the corporate, limited liability company or other power and authority to own its assets and to transact the business in which it is now engaged, and is duly qualified as a foreign corporation, limited liability company or partnership and in good standing under the laws of each other jurisdiction in which the failure to be so qualified would have a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition or operations of the Parent and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole.

Section 5.2. Corporate Power and Authority; No Conflicts. The execution, delivery and performance by each of the Borrowers and the Parent of the Facility Documents to which it is a party are within its corporate, limited liability company or other power and authority and have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate, limited liability company or other action and do not and will not: (a) require any consent or approval of its stockholders or members; (b) contravene any of its organizational documents; (c) violate any provision of, or require any filing, registration, consent or approval under, any law, rule, regulation, order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award presently in effect having applicability to the Parent or any Subsidiaries or Affiliates of the Parent; (d) result in a breach of or constitute a default or require any consent under any indenture or loan or credit agreement or any other agreement, lease or instrument to which any Borrower or the Parent is a party or by which it or its properties may be bound or affected; (e) result in, or require, the creation or imposition of any Lien upon or with respect to any of the properties now owned or hereafter acquired by any Borrower or the Parent; or (f) cause the Parent (or any Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Parent, as the case may be) to be in default under any such law, rule, regulation, order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award or any such indenture, agreement, lease or instrument.

Section 5.3. Legally Enforceable Agreements. Each Facility Document to which any Borrower or the Parent is a party is a legal, valid and binding obligation of such Borrower or the Parent (as the case may be) enforceable against such Borrower or the Parent (as the case may be) in accordance with its terms, except to the extent that such enforcement may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and other similar laws affecting creditors' rights generally and by general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in equity or at law).

Section 5.4. Litigation. There are no actions, suits or proceedings pending or, to the knowledge of the Parent or any Borrower, threatened, against or affecting the Parent or any of its Subsidiaries before any court, governmental agency or arbitrator, as to which there is a reasonable possibility of determination adverse to the Parent or such Subsidiary and which (if determined adversely to the Parent or such Subsidiary) would, in any one case or in the aggregate, materially adversely affect the financial condition, operations or business of the

24

Parent and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole or the ability of any Borrower or the Parent to perform its obligations under the Facility Documents to which it is a party.

Section 5.5. Financial Statements. The consolidated and consolidating balance sheet of the Parent and its Consolidated Subsidiaries as at January 31, 2005, and the related consolidated income statement and statements of cash flows and changes in stockholders' equity and the related consolidating income statement of the Parent and its Consolidated Subsidiaries for the fiscal year then ended, and the accompanying footnotes, together with the accompanying opinion of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, independent certified public accountants, copies of which have been furnished or made available to each of the Lenders, are complete and correct in all material respects and fairly present the financial condition of the Parent and its Consolidated Subsidiaries as at such date and the results of the operations of the Parent and its Consolidated Subsidiaries for the period covered by such statements, all in accordance with GAAP consistently applied. There are no liabilities of the Parent or any of its Consolidated Subsidiaries, fixed or contingent, which are material in relation to the consolidated financial condition of the Parent but are not reflected in the financial statements or in the notes thereto, other than liabilities arising in the ordinary course of business since January 31, 2005. No information, exhibit or report furnished by any Borrower to the Administrative Agent or any of the Lenders in connection with the negotiation of this Agreement, when read together with the financial statements referred to in this Section, contained any material misstatement of fact or omitted to state a material fact or any fact necessary to make the statements contained therein not materially misleading. Since January 31, 2005, there has been no material adverse change in the condition (financial or otherwise), business or operations of the Parent and the Consolidated Subsidiaries taken as a whole.

Section 5.6. Ownership and Liens. Each of the Parent and its Consolidated Subsidiaries has title to, or valid leasehold interests in, all of its properties and assets, real and personal, including the properties and assets, and leasehold interests reflected in the financial statements referred to in Section 5.5 (other than any properties or assets disposed of in the ordinary course of business, and other than properties and assets that are not material to the Parent and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole and other than any other sales that are permitted by this Agreement), and none of the properties and assets owned by the Parent or any of its Subsidiaries and none of its leasehold interests is subject to any Lien, except as disclosed in such financial statements or as may be permitted hereunder.

Section 5.7. Taxes. Each of the Parent and its Subsidiaries has filed or has caused to be filed all tax returns (foreign, federal, state and local) required to be filed and has paid all material taxes, assessments and governmental charges and levies shown thereon to be due, including interest and penalties, except for such taxes and other amounts as are being contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings for which adequate reserves have been established in accordance with GAAP and reflected on the consolidated balance sheet of the Parent.

The cash available to each Borrower after taking into account all other anticipated uses of the cash of such Borrower, is anticipated to be sufficient to pay all such amounts on or in respect of debt of such Borrower when such amounts are required to be paid.

(c) Each Borrower is subject to civil and commercial law with respect to its obligations under this Agreement and each of the other Facility Documents to which it is intended to be a party.

other legal process or remedy relating to the obligations of such Borrower under this Agreement or any of such other Facility Documents.

ARTICLE 10. THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT; RELATIONS AMONG LENDERS AND PARENT.

Section 10.1. Appointment, Powers and Immunities of Administrative Agent. Each Lender hereby irrevocably (but subject to removal by the Required Lenders pursuant to Section 10.9) appoints and authorizes the Administrative Agent to act as its agent hereunder and under any other Facility Document with such powers as are specifically delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms of this Agreement and any other Facility Document, together with such other powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. The Administrative Agent shall have no duties or responsibilities except those expressly set forth in this Agreement and any other Facility Document, and shall not by reason of this Agreement be a trustee for any Lender. The Administrative Agent shall not be responsible to the Lenders for any recitals, statements, representations or warranties made by the Parent or any Borrower or any officer or official of the Parent, any Borrower or any other Person contained in this Agreement or any other Facility Document, or in any certificate or other document or instrument referred to or provided for in, or received by any of them under, this Agreement or any other Facility Document, or for the value, legality, validity, effectiveness, genuineness, enforceability or sufficiency of this Agreement or any other Facility Document or any other document or instrument referred to or provided for herein or therein, for the perfection or priority of any collateral security for the Loans or for any failure by the Parent or any Borrower to perform any of its obligations hereunder or thereunder. The Administrative Agent may employ agents and attorneys-in-fact and shall not be responsible, except as to money or securities received by it or its authorized agents, for the negligence or misconduct of any such agents or attorneys-in-fact selected by it with reasonable care. Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its directors, officers, employees or agents shall be liable or responsible for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it or them hereunder or under any

46

other Facility Document or in connection herewith or therewith, except for its or their own gross negligence or willful misconduct.

Section 10.2. Reliance by Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely upon any certification, notice or other communication (including any thereof by telephone, telex, telegram or cable) believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed or sent by or on behalf of the proper Person or Persons, and upon advice and statements of legal counsel, independent accountants and other experts selected by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent may deem and treat each Lender as the holder of the Loans made by it for all purposes hereof unless and until an Assignment and Assumption Agreement shall have been furnished to the Administrative Agent in accordance with Section 11.5, but the Administrative Agent shall not be required to deal with any Person who has acquired a participation in any Loan or any such participation from a Lender. As to any matters not expressly provided for by this Agreement or any other Facility Document, the Administrative Agent shall in all cases be fully protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, hereunder in accordance with instructions signed by the Required Lenders, and such instructions of the Required Lenders and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto shall be binding on all of the Lenders and any other holder of all or any portion of any Loan or any such participation.

Section 10.3. Defaults. The Administrative Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge of the occurrence of a Default or Event of Default (other than the non-payment of principal of or interest on the Loans to the extent the same is required to be paid to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders) unless the Administrative Agent has received notice from a Lender or the Parent or a Borrower specifying such Default or Event of Default and stating that such notice is a "Notice of Default." In the event that the Administrative Agent receives such a notice of the occurrence of a Default or Event of Default, the Administrative Agent shall give prompt notice thereof to the Lenders (and shall give each Lender prompt notice of each such non-payment). The Administrative Agent shall (subject to Section 10.8 and Section 11.1(a)) take such action with respect to such Default or Event of Default which is continuing as shall be directed by the Required Lenders; provided that, unless and until the Administrative Agent shall have received such directions, the Administrative Agent may take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such Default or Event of Default as it shall deem advisable in the best interest of the Lenders; and provided further that the Administrative Agent shall not be required to take any such action which it determines to be contrary to law.

Section 10.4. Rights of Administrative Agent as a Lender. With respect to its Revolving Credit Commitment and the Loans made by it, the entity which is the Administrative Agent in its capacity as a Lender hereunder shall have the same rights and powers hereunder as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not acting as the Administrative Agent, and the term "Lender" or "Lenders" shall, unless the context otherwise indicates, include the entity which is the Administrative Agent in its capacity as a Lender. The entity which is the Administrative Agent and its Affiliates may (without having to account therefor to any Lender) accept deposits from, lend money to (on a secured or unsecured basis), and generally engage in any kind of banking, trust or other business with, the Parent (and any of its Affiliates including the Borrowers) as if it were not acting as the Administrative Agent, and the entity which is the Administrative Agent may accept fees and other consideration from the Parent or any Borrower

47

for services in connection with this Agreement or otherwise without having to account for the same to the Lenders. Although the Administrative Agent and its Affiliates may in the course of such relationships and relationships with other Persons acquire information about the Parent, its Affiliates and such other Persons, the Administrative Agent shall have no duty to disclose such information to the Lenders.

Section 10.5. Indemnification of Administrative Agent. The Lenders agree to indemnify the Administrative Agent (to the extent not reimbursed under
Section 11.3 or under the applicable provisions of any other Facility Document, but without limiting the obligations of the Borrowers under Section 11.3 or such provisions), ratably in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Percentages, for any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind and nature whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement, any other Facility Document or any other documents contemplated by or referred to herein or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby (including, without limitation, the costs and expenses which any Borrower is obligated to pay under
Section 11.3 or under the applicable provisions of any other Facility Document but excluding, unless a Default or Event of Default has occurred, normal administrative costs and expenses incident to the performance of its agency duties hereunder) or the enforcement of any of the terms hereof or thereof or of any such other documents or instruments; provided that no Lender shall be liable for any of the foregoing to the extent they arise from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the party to be indemnified.

Section 10.6. Documents. The Administrative Agent will forward to each Lender, promptly after the Administrative Agent's receipt thereof, a copy of each report, notice or other document required by this Agreement or any other Facility Document to be delivered to the Administrative Agent for such Lender.

Section 10.7. Non-Reliance on Administrative Agent and Other Lenders. Each Lender agrees that it has, independently and without reliance on the Administrative Agent or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis of the Parent and its Subsidiaries and decision to enter into this Agreement and that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own analysis and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement or any other Facility Document. The Administrative Agent shall not be required to keep itself informed as to the performance or observance by the Parent or any Borrower of this Agreement or any other Facility Document or any other document referred to or provided for herein or therein or to inspect the properties or books of the Parent or any Subsidiary. Except for notices, reports and other documents and information expressly required to be furnished to the Lenders by the Administrative Agent hereunder, the Administrative Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to provide any Lender with any credit or other information concerning the affairs, financial condition or business of the Parent or any Subsidiary (or any of their Affiliates) which may come into the possession of the Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates. The Administrative Agent shall not be required to file this Agreement, any other Facility Document or any document or instrument referred to herein or therein, for record or give notice of this

48

Agreement, any other Facility Document or any document or instrument referred to herein or therein, to anyone.

Section 10.8. Failure of Administrative Agent to Act. Except for action expressly required of the Administrative Agent hereunder, the Administrative Agent shall in all cases be fully justified in failing or refusing to act hereunder unless it shall have received further assurances (which may include cash collateral) of the indemnification obligations of the Lenders under Section 10.5 in respect of any and all liability and expense which may be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action.

Section 10.9. Resignation of Administrative Agent. Subject to the appointment and acceptance of a successor Administrative Agent as provided below, the Administrative Agent may resign at any time by giving written notice thereof to the Lenders, the Parent and the Borrowers. Upon any such resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right to appoint a successor Administrative Agent, subject (unless an Event of Default exists) to the approval of the Parent, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. If no successor Administrative Agent shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after the retiring Administrative Agent's giving of notice of resignation, then the retiring Administrative Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Administrative Agent, subject (unless an Event of Default exists) to the approval of the Parent, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, which shall be a Lender or (if no Lender accepts the appointment) a bank which has offices in New York, New York and London and has a combined capital and surplus of at least $1,000,000,000. The Required Lenders or the retiring Administrative Agent, as the case may be, shall upon the appointment of a successor Administrative Agent promptly so notify the Parent, the Borrowers and the other Lenders. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor Administrative Agent, such successor Administrative Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Administrative Agent, and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. After any retiring Administrative Agent's resignation hereunder as Administrative Agent, the provisions of this Article shall continue in effect for its benefit in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as the Administrative Agent.

Section 10.10. Amendments Concerning Agency Function. The Administrative Agent shall not be bound by any waiver, amendment, supplement or modification of this Agreement or any other Facility Document which affects its duties hereunder or thereunder unless it shall have given its prior consent thereto.

Section 10.11. Liability of Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall not have any liabilities or responsibilities to the Parent or any Borrower on account of the failure of any Lender to perform its obligations hereunder or to any Lender on account of the failure of the Parent or any Borrower to perform its obligations hereunder or under any other Facility Document.

Section 10.12. Delegation of Agency Functions. The Administrative Agent may perform any and all its duties and exercise any or all of its rights and powers by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent and

49

any such sub-agent may perform any and all its duties and exercise any and all of its rights and powers through their respective Affiliates. The exculpatory provisions as to the Administrative Agent contained in this Article shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Affiliates of the Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent.

Section 10.13. Non-Receipt of Funds by the Administrative Agent. Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified by a Lender or a Borrower (either one as appropriate being the "Payor") (or by the Parent or any Borrower) prior to the date on which such Lender is to make payment hereunder to the Administrative Agent of the proceeds of a Loan or such Borrower is to make payment to the Administrative Agent, as the case may be (either such payment being a "Required Payment"), which notice shall be effective upon receipt, that the Payor does not intend to make the Required Payment to the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Required Payment has been made and may, in reliance upon such assumption (but shall not be required to), make the amount thereof available to the intended recipient on such date and, if the Payor has not in fact made the Required Payment to the Administrative Agent, the recipient of such payment (and, if such recipient is a Borrower and the Payor Lender fails to pay the amount thereof to the Administrative Agent forthwith upon demand, such Borrower) shall, on demand, repay to the Administrative Agent the amount made available to it together with interest thereon for the period from the date such amount was so made available by the Administrative Agent until the date the Administrative Agent recovers such amount at a rate per annum equal to (i) in the case of a Borrower, the interest rate applicable at such time to the applicable Loan, and (ii) in the case of such Lender, a rate determined by the Administrative Agent to represent its cost of overnight or short-term funds in Swiss francs (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error). If a Lender makes a Required Payment to the Administrative Agent pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence and a Borrower shall have repaid such amount to the Administrative Agent pursuant to such sentence, the Administrative Agent shall promptly return to such Borrower any amount (including interest) paid by such Borrower to the Administrative Agent pursuant to such sentence.

Section 10.14. Several Obligations and Rights of Lenders. The failure of any Lender to make any Loan to be made by it on the date specified therefor shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligation to make its Loan on such date, but no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make a Loan to be made by such other Lender. The amounts payable at any time hereunder to each Lender shall be a separate and independent debt, and each of them shall be entitled to protect and enforce its rights arising out of this Agreement, and it shall not be necessary for any other of them to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose.

Section 10.15. Pro Rata Treatment of Loans, Etc. Except to the extent otherwise expressly provided: (a) each Borrowing of Loans pursuant to Section 2.1 shall be made from the Lenders, each reduction or termination of the amount of the Revolving Credit Commitments under Section 2.8 shall be applied to the Revolving Credit Commitments, and each payment of Commitment Fees accruing under
Section 2.5 shall be made for the account of the Lenders, pro rata according to the amounts of their respective unused Revolving Credit Commitments; and (b) each prepayment and payment of principal of or interest on Loans of a particular Interest Period shall be made to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders holding Loans of such

50

Interest Period pro rata in accordance with the respective unpaid principal amounts of such Loans of such Interest Period held by such Lenders.

Section 10.16. Sharing of Payments Among Lenders. If a Lender shall obtain payment of any principal of or interest on any Loan made by it, through the exercise of any right of setoff, banker's lien, counterclaim, or by any other means it shall promptly purchase from the other Lenders participations in (or, if and to the extent specified by such Lender, direct interests in) the Loans made by the other Lenders, and make such other adjustments from time to time as shall be equitable to the end that all the Lenders shall share the benefit of such payment (net of any expenses which may be incurred by such Lender in obtaining or preserving such benefit) pro rata in accordance with the unpaid principal and interest on the Loans held by each of them. To such end the Lenders shall make appropriate adjustments among themselves (by the resale of participations sold or otherwise) if such payment is rescinded or must otherwise be restored. Each Borrower agrees that any Lender so purchasing a participation (or direct interest) in the Loans made by other Lenders may exercise all rights of setoff, banker's lien, counterclaim or similar rights with respect to such participation (or direct interest). Nothing contained herein shall require any Lender to exercise any such right or shall affect the right of any Lender to exercise, and retain the benefits of exercising, any such right with respect to any other indebtedness of any Borrower.

Section 10.17. Other Agents. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Sole Lead Arranger and Sole Bookrunner, the Syndication Agent and the Documentation Agents named on the cover page of this Agreement shall not have any duties or liabilities under this Agreement, except in their capacity, if any, as Lenders.

ARTICLE 11. MISCELLANEOUS.

Section 11.1. Amendments and Waivers; Remedies Cumulative. (a) Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, any provision of this Agreement may be amended or modified only by an instrument in writing signed by the Borrowers and the Parent, the Administrative Agent and the Required Lenders, or by the Borrowers and the Parent, and the Administrative Agent acting with the consent of the Required Lenders, and any provision of this Agreement may be waived by the Required Lenders or by the Administrative Agent acting with the consent of the Required Lenders; provided that no amendment, modification or waiver shall, unless by an instrument signed by all of the Lenders or by the Administrative Agent acting with the consent of all of the Lenders: (i) increase or extend the term, or extend the time for the reduction or termination, of the Revolving Credit Commitments, (ii) extend the date fixed for the payment of principal of or interest on any Loan or any fees payable hereunder, (iii) reduce the amount of any payment of principal thereof or the rate at which interest is payable thereon or any fee payable hereunder, (iv) alter the terms of this
Section or any other provision hereof specifying that the approval of all Lenders is required (including such provisions contained in Section 11.5(a)),
(v) amend the definition of the term "Required Lenders", (vi) release collateral (if any) in any material amount, (vii) release or limit the Parent Guarantee or
(viii) add any currency (other than Euro) as a currency in which Loans may be made; and provided, further, that any amendment of Article 10 or any amendment which increases the obligations of the Administrative Agent hereunder shall require the consent of the Administrative Agent.

51

(b) No failure or delay by the Administrative Agent or any Lender in exercising any right or power hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such a right or power, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power. The rights and remedies of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereunder are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies that they would otherwise have. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement or consent to any departure by the Parent or any Borrower therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by paragraph (a) of this Section, and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the making of a Loan shall not be construed as a waiver of any Default or Event of Default, regardless of whether the Administrative Agent or any Lender may have had notice or knowledge of such Default or Event of Default at the time.

Section 11.2. Usury. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the obligations of each Borrower under this Agreement and the Notes shall be subject to the limitation that payments of interest shall not be required to the extent that receipt thereof would be contrary to provisions of law applicable to a Lender limiting rates of interest which may be charged or collected by such Lender.

Section 11.3. Expenses; Indemnity; Damage Waiver. (a) The Borrowers shall pay (i) all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent, including the reasonable and documented fees, charges and disbursements of counsel for the Administrative Agent, in connection with the syndication of the credit facility provided for herein, the preparation and administration of this Agreement or any amendments, modifications or waivers of the provisions hereof (whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby shall be consummated), and (ii) all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Administrative Agent or any Lender, including the reasonable and documented fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for the Administrative Agent or any Lender, in connection with the enforcement or protection of its rights in connection with this Agreement, including its rights under this Section, or in connection with the Loans made, including all such reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred during any workout, restructuring or negotiations in respect of such Loans. The liability of each Borrower under this paragraph (a) shall be limited to such out-of-pocket expenses that (x) relate to such Borrower or to the Loans made to such Borrower or to the obligations incurred by such Borrower under this Agreement or under any other Facility Document to which such Borrower is a party, or (y) arise as a result of such Borrower being a party to this Agreement or to another Facility Document.

(b) The Borrowers shall indemnify the Administrative Agent and each Lender, and each Related Party of any of the foregoing Persons (each such Person being called an "Indemnitee") against, and hold each Indemnitee harmless from, any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses, including the reasonable and documented fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for any Indemnitee, incurred by or asserted against any Indemnitee arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of (i) the use of proceeds of a Loan or (ii) any actual or prospective claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing or to the execution or delivery of this Agreement or any other Facility Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby or to the performance by the parties

52

hereto or thereto of their respective obligations hereunder or thereunder or to the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby or to any Loan, whether the same is based on contract, tort or any other theory and regardless of whether any Indemnitee is a party thereto; provided that such indemnity shall not, as to any Indemnitee, be available to the extent that such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or related expenses are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee. The liability of each Borrower under this paragraph (b) shall be limited to such losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses that (x) relate to such Borrower or to the Loans made to such Borrower or to the obligations incurred by such Borrower under this Agreement or under any other Facility Document to which such Borrower is a party, or (y) arise as a result of such Borrower being a party to this Agreement or to another Facility Document.

(c) To the extent that the Borrowers fail to pay any amount required to be paid to the Administrative Agent under paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section, each Lender severally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent such Lender's Pro Rata Percentage (determined as of the time that the applicable unreimbursed expense or indemnity payment is sought) of such unpaid amount; provided that the unreimbursed expense or indemnified loss, claim, damage, liability or related expense, as the case may be, was incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent in its capacity as such.

(d) To the extent permitted by applicable law, no Borrower shall assert, and each Borrower hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement, any other Facility Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, any Loan or the use of the proceeds thereof.

Section 11.4. Survival. The obligations of the Borrowers under Article 3 and Section 11.3 shall survive the repayment of the Loans and the termination of the Revolving Credit Commitments.

Section 11.5. Assignment; Participations. (a) This Agreement shall be binding upon, and shall inure to the benefit of, the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent, the Lenders and their respective successors and assigns, except that no Borrower may assign or transfer its rights or obligations hereunder without the written approval of all the Lenders (and any attempted such assignment or transfer without such consent shall be null and void).

(b) Each Lender may assign to one or more assignees all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Revolving Credit Commitment and the Loans owing to it), with the prior written consent (such consent not to unreasonably withheld) of (i) the Administrative Agent and (ii) the Parent; provided that (x) no such consent of the Parent shall be required for an assignment to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund or if any Event of Default exists as a result of the commencement of a case with respect to the Parent under the U.S. Federal Bankruptcy Code or as a result of the commencement of a bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership or similar proceeding

53

with respect to either Borrower under Swiss or other foreign law, to any other assignee and (y) the provisions of paragraph (g) below shall have been complied with.

Assignments shall be subject to the following additional conditions:

(A) each such assignment shall be of a constant, and not a varying, percentage of the assigning Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement and the assignment shall cover the same percentage of such Lender's Revolving Credit Commitment and Loans;

(B) except in the case of an assignment to a Lender or an Affiliate of a Lender or an assignment of the entire remaining amount of the assigning Lender's Commitment or Loans, the amount of the Revolving Credit Commitment of the assigning Lender being assigned pursuant to each such assignment (determined as of the effective date of the Assignment and Assumption Agreement with respect to such assignment) shall in no event be less than CHF 5,000,000 and shall be an integral multiple of CHF 1,000,000, unless the Administrative Agent and the Parent otherwise consent (provided that no such consent of the Parent shall be required if any Event of Default exists as a result of the commencement of a case with respect to the Parent under the U.S. Federal Bankruptcy Code or as a result of the commencement of a bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership or similar proceeding with respect to either Borrower under Swiss or other foreign law);

(C) the parties to each such assignment shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent, for its approval and acceptance, an Assignment and Assumption Agreement;

(D) the Administrative Agent shall receive from the assignor (or, in the case of an assignment pursuant to Section 3.7, from the Parent) a processing fee of $3,500; and

(E) the assignee, if it shall not be a Lender, shall deliver to the Administrative Agent an Administrative Questionnaire.

Upon such execution, delivery, approval and acceptance, and on the effective date specified in the applicable Assignment and Assumption Agreement,
(a) the assignee thereunder shall become a party hereto and a "Lender" for purposes hereof and, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned to it pursuant to such Assignment and Assumption Agreement, shall have the rights and obligations of a Lender hereunder and (b) the Lender-assignor thereunder shall, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned by it pursuant to such Assignment and Assumption Agreement, relinquish its rights (except under Article 3 and Section 11.3 in respect of the period prior to the effective date of such Assignment and Assumption) and be released from its obligations under this Agreement.

(c) By executing and delivering an Assignment and Assumption Agreement, the Lender-assignor thereunder and the assignee thereunder confirm to and agree with each other and the other parties hereto as follows: (i) other than as provided in such Assignment and Assumption Agreement, such assigning Lender makes no representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility with respect to any statements, warranties or representations made in or in connection with this Agreement or any other Facility Document or the execution, legality,

54

validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of this Agreement or any other Facility Document or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto; (ii) such assigning Lender makes no representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility with respect to the financial condition of the Parent or any Subsidiary or the performance or observance by the Parent or any Subsidiary of any of their respective obligations under any Facility Document or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto; (iii) such assignee confirms that it has received a copy of this Agreement, together with copies of the most recent financial statements referred to in Section 6.8(a) and (b) and such other Facility Documents and other documents and information as it has deemed appropriate to make its own credit analysis and decision to enter into such Assignment and Assumption Agreement; (iv) such assignee will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent, such assigning Lender or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement; (v) such assignee appoints and authorizes the Administrative Agent to take such action as agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers under this Agreement and the other Facility Documents as are delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms hereof and thereof, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto; and
(vi) such assignee agrees that it will perform in accordance with their terms all of the obligations which by the terms of this Agreement are required to be performed by it as a Lender.

(d) The Administrative Agent shall maintain a copy of each Assignment and Assumption Agreement delivered to and accepted by it and shall record the names and addresses of each Lender and the Revolving Credit Commitment of, and principal amount of the Loans owing to such Lender from time to time. Each Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders may treat each Person whose name is so recorded as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement, absent manifest error. Such record shall be available for inspection by each Borrower and each Lender.

(e) Upon its receipt of an Assignment and Assumption Agreement executed by an assigning Lender and an assignee and (to the extent required by this Section) consented to by the Parent and the Administrative Agent and the assignee's completed Administrative Questionnaire (unless the assignee shall already be a Lender hereunder), the Administrative Agent shall, if such Assignment and Assumption Agreement has been properly completed, (i) accept such Assignment and Assumption Agreement, (ii) record the information contained therein and (iii) give prompt notice thereof to the Borrowers and the Lenders. Upon request, each Borrower shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent appropriate promissory notes in favor of each assignee evidencing such assignee's Pro Rata Percentage of the Total Revolving Credit Commitment. If the Lender-assignor shall have assigned its entire Revolving Credit Commitment and Loans, the original promissory notes evidencing such Revolving Credit Commitment and Loans shall be cancelled and returned to the applicable Borrower.

(f) Subject to paragraph (g) of this Section, each Lender may sell participations to one or more banks, finance companies, insurance or other financial institutions in or to all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including without limitation all or a portion of its Revolving Credit Commitment and the Loans owing to it); provided, however, that
(i) such Lender's obligations under this Agreement (including without

55

limitation its Revolving Credit Commitment) shall remain unchanged, (ii) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations, (iii) such participant shall have no rights under any of the Facility Documents, (iv) each Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the other Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement and with regard to any and all payments to be made under this Agreement and its Notes, and (v) the agreement executed by such Lender in favor of the participant shall not give the participant the right to require such Lender to take or omit to take any action hereunder except action directly relating to (i) the extension of a payment date with respect to any portion of the principal of or interest on any amount outstanding hereunder allocated to such participant, (ii) the reduction of the principal amount outstanding hereunder allocated to such participant or (iii) the reduction of the rate of interest payable on such amount or any amount of fees payable hereunder to a rate or amount, as the case may be, below that which the participant is entitled to receive under its agreement with such Lender.

(g) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, without the prior written consent of the Parent, no Lender shall effect any assignment of all or a portion of, or any sale of a participation in or entry into any sub-participation agreement (each a "transfer") with respect to, any Loan made to any Borrower if such transfer would result in more than five Lenders which are not Qualifying Banks. Each Lender further agrees that if in connection with any transfer by such Lender the proposed transferee is not a Qualifying Bank, such Lender shall give at least ten days' prior notice of such proposed transfer to the Parent and the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly notify each of the other Lenders). Any such purported assignment, participation or sub-participation that does not comply with the requirements of this paragraph (including the requirement for notice pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence) shall be null and void.

(h) Each Borrower will use reasonable efforts to cooperate with the Administrative Agent and Lenders in connection with the assignment of interests under this Agreement or the sale of participations herein.

(i) No Lender shall be permitted to assign or sell all or any portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement to the Parent or any Affiliate of the Parent.

(j) Any Lender that proposes to sell any assignment or participation hereunder may furnish any information concerning the Parent and its Affiliates in the possession of such Lender from time to time to assignees and participants (including prospective assignees and participants); provided that such Lender shall require any such prospective assignee or such participant (prospective or otherwise) to agree in writing to maintain the confidentiality of such information, as provided in Section 11.14.

(k) In addition to the assignments and participations permitted under the foregoing provisions of this Section, any Lender may at any time pledge or grant a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including without limitation any pledge or grant to secure obligations of such Lender to a Federal Reserve Bank, and this Section shall not apply to any such pledge or grant of a security interest; provided that no such pledge or grant of a security interest shall release a Lender from

56

any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or grantee for such Lender as a party hereto.

Section 11.6. Notices. (a) Except in the case of notices and other communications expressly permitted to be given by telephone (and subject to paragraph (b) below), all notices and other communications provided for herein shall be in writing and shall be delivered by hand or overnight courier service, mailed by certified or registered mail or sent by telecopy, (i) in the case of any Borrower or the Administrative Agent, to it at its address set forth beneath its signature line below and (ii) in the case of any Lender, to it at its address (or telecopy number) set forth in its Administrative Questionnaire.

(b) Notices and other communications to the Lenders hereunder may be delivered or furnished by electronic communications pursuant to procedures approved by the Administrative Agent; provided that the foregoing shall not apply to notices pursuant to Article 2 unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent and the applicable Lender. The Administrative Agent or any Borrower may, in its discretion, agree to accept notices and other communications to it hereunder by electronic communications pursuant to procedures approved by it; provided that approval of such procedures may be limited to particular notices or communications.

(c) Any party hereto may change its address or telecopy number for notices and other communications hereunder by notice to the other parties hereto. All notices and other communications given to any party hereto in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement shall be deemed to have been given on the date of receipt.

Section 11.7. Setoff. Each Borrower agrees that, in addition to (and without limitation of) any right of setoff, banker's lien or counterclaim a Lender may otherwise have, each Lender (and any Affiliate thereof through which any Loan is made) shall be entitled, at its option, to offset balances (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) held by it for the account of such Borrower at any of such Lender's offices, in dollars or in any other currency, against any amount payable by such Borrower to such Lender under this Agreement or such Lender's Note which is not paid when due (regardless of whether such balances are then due to such Borrower), in which case it shall promptly notify such Borrower and the Administrative Agent thereof; provided that such Lender's failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity thereof or place such Lender under any liability to such Borrower. Payments by each Borrower hereunder shall be made without setoff or counterclaim.

Section 11.8. JURISDICTION; JURY WAIVER; IMMUNITIES. (a) EACH OF THE BORROWERS AND THE PARENT HEREBY IRREVOCABLY SUBMITS TO THE JURISDICTION OF ANY NEW YORK STATE OR UNITED STATES FEDERAL COURT SITTING IN NEW YORK COUNTY OVER ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE NOTES OR ANY OTHER FACILITY DOCUMENT, AND EACH OF THE BORROWERS AND THE PARENT HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AGREES THAT ALL CLAIMS IN RESPECT OF SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING MAY BE HEARD AND DETERMINED IN SUCH NEW YORK STATE OR FEDERAL COURT. EACH OF THE BORROWERS AND THE PARENT IRREVOCABLY CONSENTS TO THE SERVICE

EACH OF THE BORROWERS AND THE PARENT AGREES THAT A FINAL JUDGMENT IN ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING SHALL BE CONCLUSIVE AND MAY BE ENFORCED IN OTHER JURISDICTIONS BY SUIT ON THE JUDGMENT OR IN ANY OTHER MANNER PROVIDED BY LAW. EACH OF THE BORROWERS AND THE PARENT FURTHER WAIVES ANY OBJECTION TO VENUE IN SUCH STATE AND ANY OBJECTION TO AN ACTION OR PROCEEDING IN SUCH STATE ON THE BASIS OF FORUM NON CONVENIENS. EACH OF THE BORROWERS AND THE PARENT FURTHER AGREES THAT ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING BROUGHT AGAINST THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT SHALL BE BROUGHT ONLY IN NEW YORK STATE OR UNITED STATES FEDERAL COURT SITTING IN NEW YORK COUNTY.

(b) Furthermore, each Borrower hereby agrees that service of all writs, process and summonses in any such action or proceeding brought in the State of New York may be made upon Corporation Service Company, presently located at 80 State Street, 6th Floor, Albany, New York 12207 U.S.A. (the "Process Agent") and each Borrower hereby confirms and agrees that the Process Agent has been duly and irrevocably appointed as its agent and true and lawful attorney-in-fact in its name, place and stead to accept such service of any and all such writs, process and summonses, and agrees that the failure of the Process Agent to give any notice of any such service of process to such Borrower (or to any other Person) shall not impair or affect the validity of such service or of any judgment based thereon.

(C) EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS PARAGRAPH.

(d) Nothing in this Section shall affect the right of the Administrative Agent or any Lender to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by law or affect the right of the Administrative Agent or any Lender to bring any action or proceeding against the Parent or any Borrower or its respective property in the courts of any other jurisdictions.

(e) To the extent that any Borrower has or hereafter may acquire any immunity from jurisdiction of any court or from any legal process (whether from service or

58

notice, attachment prior to judgment, attachment in aid of execution, execution or otherwise) with respect to itself or its property, such Borrower hereby irrevocably waives such immunity in respect of its obligations under this Agreement and its Notes.

Section 11.9. Table of Contents; Headings. Any table of contents and the headings and captions hereunder are for convenience only and shall not affect the interpretation or construction of this Agreement.

Section 11.10. Severability. The provisions of this Agreement are intended to be severable. If for any reason any provision of this Agreement shall be held invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part in any jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability without in any manner affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other jurisdiction or the remaining provisions hereof in any jurisdiction.

Section 11.11. Authorization of Parent. Each Borrower hereby authorizes the Parent to give on behalf of such Borrower all notices, consents and other communications that may be given by such Borrower under or in connection with this Agreement or any other Facility Document, and to receive on behalf of such Borrower all notices, consents and other communications that may be given to such Borrower under or in connection with this Agreement or any other Facility Document (in each case, irrespective of whether or not such notice, consent or other communication is expressly provided elsewhere in this Agreement to be given or received by the Parent on behalf of such Borrower). Such notices, consents and other communications may include Borrowing Requests, notices as to continuations and prepayments of Loans, notices and demands in connection with Events of Default, and notices and demands in connection with the exercise by the Administrative Agent or any Lender of remedies. Such notices, consents and other communications may be given by or to the Parent in its own name or in the name of such Borrower.

Section 11.13. GOVERNING LAW. THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND INTERPRETED AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

Section 11.14. Confidentiality. (a) Each Lender and the Administrative Agent agrees (on behalf of itself and each of its Affiliates, directors, officers, employees and representatives) to use reasonable precautions to keep confidential, in accordance with safe and sound banking practices, any non-public information supplied to it by the Parent or any Borrower pursuant to this Agreement which is identified by the Parent or such Borrower, as applicable, as being confidential at the time the same is delivered to the Lenders or the Administrative Agent, provided that nothing herein shall limit the disclosure of any such

59

information (a) to its Affiliates or any of its or such Affiliates' directors, officers, employees and agents, including accountants, legal counsel and other advisors (it being understood that the Persons to whom such disclosure is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Information and instructed to keep such Information confidential), (b) to the extent requested by any regulatory authority, (c) to the extent required by applicable laws or regulations or by any subpoena or similar legal process, (d) to any other party to this Agreement, (e) in connection with the exercise of any remedies hereunder or any suit, action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or the enforcement of rights hereunder, (f) subject to an agreement containing provisions substantially the same as those of this Section, to (i) any assignee of or participant in, or any prospective assignee of or participant in, any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement or (ii) any actual or prospective counterparty (or its advisors) to any swap or derivative transaction relating to the Parent or any Borrower and its respective obligations, (g) with the consent of the Parent or (h) to the extent such Information (i) becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section or (ii) becomes available to the Administrative Agent or any Lender on a nonconfidential basis from a source other than the Parent and the Borrowers; provided further that in no event shall the Administrative Agent or any Lender be obligated or required to return any materials furnished by any Borrower.

(b) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, each Lender and the Administrative Agent (and such Lender's or Administrative Agent's employees, representatives or other agents, as the case may be) may disclose to any and all persons, without limitation of any kind, the tax treatment and tax structure of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and all materials of any kind (including opinions or other tax analyses) related to such tax treatment and tax structure, except that (i) this sentence shall not apply to the extent that nondisclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with the securities laws, and (ii) this sentence shall not permit any Person to reveal the identity of the Parent or any of its Subsidiaries.

Section 11.15. Treatment of Certain Information. Each Borrower (a) acknowledges that services may be offered or provided to it (in connection with this Agreement or otherwise) by each Lender or by one or more of their respective subsidiaries or Affiliates and (b) acknowledges that information delivered to each Lender by any Borrower (or by the Parent on behalf of a Borrower) may be provided to each such subsidiary and Affiliate.

Section 11.16. Judgment Currency. (a) The obligations hereunder of any Borrower to make payments in Swiss francs (the "Obligation Currency") shall not be discharged or satisfied by any tender or recovery pursuant to any judgment expressed in or converted into any currency other than the Obligation Currency, except to the extent that such tender or recovery results in the effective receipt by the Administrative Agent or a Lender of the full amount of the Obligation Currency expressed to be payable to the Administrative Agent or such Lender under this Agreement or the other Facility Documents. If, for the purpose of obtaining or enforcing judgment against any Borrower or the Parent in any court or in any jurisdiction, it becomes necessary to convert into or from any currency other than the Obligation Currency (such other currency being hereinafter referred to as the "Judgment Currency") an amount due in the Obligation Currency, the conversion of the amount of such other currency into Swiss francs shall be made at a spot exchange rate for the purchase of Swiss francs as reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent, in each case, as of the date immediately preceding the day on which the judgment is given (such Business Day being hereinafter referred to as the "Judgment

60

Currency Conversion Date") using such exchange rate as of the Judgment Currency Conversion Date.

(b) If there is a change in the rate of exchange prevailing between the Judgment Currency Conversion Date and the date of actual payment of the amount due, the applicable Borrower, as the case may be, covenants and agrees to pay, or cause to be paid, such additional amounts, if any (but in any event not a lesser amount), as may be necessary to ensure that the amount paid in the Judgment Currency, when converted at the rate of exchange prevailing on the date of payment, will produce the amount of the Obligation Currency which could have been purchased with the amount of Judgment Currency stipulated in the judgment or judicial award at the rate of exchange prevailing on the Judgment Currency Conversion Date.

(c) For purposes of determining the equivalent amount in the Obligation Currency of amounts in another other currency, such amounts shall include any premium and costs payable in connection with the purchase of the Obligation Currency.

Section 11.17. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same instrument, and any party hereto may execute this Agreement by signing any such counterpart. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Agreement by telecopy shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement.

Section 11.18. USA PATRIOT Act. Each Lender hereby notifies the Borrowers that pursuant to the requirements of the USA PATRIOT Act (Title III of Pub. L. 107-56 (signed into law October 26, 2001)), such Lender may be required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies the Borrowers, which information includes the name and address of each Borrower and other information that will allow such Lender to identify the Borrowers in accordance with said Act.

Section 11.19. Borrowers' Mutual Obligations.

(a) The Borrowers are interdependent for their operational and financial needs. Each Borrower jointly and severally and irrevocably and unconditionally accepts, not merely as a surety but also as a co-debtor, joint and several liability with the other Borrower with respect to the payment and performance of all of the Obligations, it being the intention of the parties hereto that all the Obligations shall be the joint and several obligations of each Borrower without preferences or distinction among them, and each Borrower further agrees that if any of the Obligations are not paid in full when due (whether at stated maturity, as a mandatory prepayment, by acceleration, as a mandatory cash collateralization or otherwise), the Borrowers will, jointly and severally, promptly pay the same, without any demand or notice whatsoever and notwithstanding anything in any provision of this Agreement, other than paragraph (e) of this Section, to the contrary (for avoidance of doubt, it being agreed that paragraph (e) of this Section shall prevail over the second sentence of this Section 11.19(a)). All Borrowers acknowledge and agree that the delivery of funds to any Borrower under this Agreement shall constitute valuable consideration and reasonably equivalent value to all Borrowers for the purpose of binding them and their assets on a joint and several basis for the obligations hereunder.

61

(b) The joint and several obligations of each Borrower hereunder are of payment and not of collection and are independent of the obligations of any other Borrower and a separate action or actions may be brought against each Borrower whether or not action is brought against any other Borrower. The Administrative Agent or any Lender may enforce this Agreement and the other Facility Documents against any Borrower without first making demand upon or instituting collection proceedings against any other Borrower. Each Borrower waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the benefits of any statutes of limitations affecting its liability hereunder. Each Borrower hereby waives promptness, diligence, notice of acceptance and any other notice with respect to the obligations of any other Borrower and any requirement that any Lender protect, secure, perfect or insure any security interest or Lien, or any property subject thereto, or exhaust any right or take any action against any other Borrower or entity.

(c) The unconditional liability of each Borrower for the entire Obligations shall not be impaired by any event whatsoever, including, but not limited to, the merger, consolidation, dissolution, cessation of business or liquidation of any Borrower; the financial decline or bankruptcy of any Borrower; the failure of any other party to guarantee the Obligations or to provide collateral therefor; the Lenders' compromise or settlement with or without release of any Borrower; the Administrative Agent's release of any collateral for the Obligations, with or without notice to any Borrower; the Administrative Agent's or Lenders' failure to file suit against any Borrower (regardless of whether such Borrower is becoming insolvent, is believed to be about to leave the state or jurisdiction or any other circumstance); the Administrative Agent's or Lenders' failure to give any Borrower notice of default; the unenforceability of the Obligations against any Borrower due to bankruptcy discharge, counterclaim, or for any other reason; the Administrative Agent's or Lenders' acceleration of the Obligations at any time; the extension, modification or renewal of the Obligations or any Facility Document; the Administrative Agent's or Lenders' failure to undertake or exercise diligence in collection efforts against any party or property; the termination of any relationship of any Borrower with any other Borrower, including, but not limited to, any relationship of commerce or ownership; any Borrower's change of name or use of any name other than the name used to identify such Borrower in this Agreement; or any Borrower's use of the credit extended for any purpose whatsoever.

(d) Each Borrower agrees not to seek payment directly or indirectly from another Borrower or any other Person through a claim of indemnity, contribution, or otherwise with respect to the Obligations, until the Obligations (other than contingent obligations that survive the termination of this Agreement) have been repaid in full and the Revolving Credit Commitments have terminated.

(e) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the aggregate liability of any Borrower under this Agreement for, or with respect to, Obligations originally or primarily incurred by the other Borrower shall not exceed at any time the amount of such Borrower's freely disposable equity in accordance with Swiss law (being the relevant Borrower's total shareholder equity less the total of (i) its aggregate share capital and (ii) its statutory reserves (including reserves for its own shares and revaluations as well as agio)) at the time of the start of the proceedings for enforcement of the Obligations of such Borrower under this Section 11.19,

62

which amount (x) shall be determined on the basis of an up to date audited interim balance sheet of such Borrower prepared for such determination, (y) shall be approved by the auditors of such Borrower as a distributable amount, and (z) shall be or has been approved as a distribution by a duly convened meeting of the shareholders of such Borrower, the parties being aware that any payment in respect of such Obligations will be subject to Swiss withholding tax.

[The remainder of this page has intentionally been left blank.]

EXHIBIT C-1

(Form of Opinion of Timothy F. Michno, Esq.)

December 15, 2005

To each of the Lenders party to the Credit Agreement referred to below and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as Agent

Ladies and Gentlemen:

I have acted as counsel to Movado Group, Inc., a New York corporation (the "Parent"), in connection with that certain Credit Agreement (the "Credit Agreement") dated as of the date hereof among the Parent, MGI Luxury Group S.A., a corporation organized under the laws of Switzerland ("MGI"), Movado Watch Company SA, a corporation organized under the laws of Switzerland (together with MGI, the "Borrowers" and, together with MGI and the Parent the "Principal Parties"), the Lenders signatory thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as Agent (the "Agent Bank"). I have also acted as counsel to the Parent and the Borrowers, in connection with the Parent Guarantee in favor of the Lenders and the Agent Bank. Except as otherwise defined herein, all terms used herein and defined in the Credit Agreement shall have the meanings assigned to them therein.

In connection with this opinion, I have examined executed copies of the Facility Documents and such other documents, records, agreements and certificates as I have deemed appropriate. I have also reviewed such matters of law as I have considered relevant for the purpose of this opinion.

Based upon the foregoing, I am of the opinion that:

1. Each of the Parent and the Borrowers is a corporation duly incorporated, validity existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of New York (in the case of the Parent) or under the laws of Switzerland (in the case of the Borrowers); and each of them has the corporate power and authority to own its assets and to transact the business in which it is now engaged and is duly qualified as a foreign corporation and in good standing under the laws of each other jurisdiction in which the failure to be so qualified would have a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition or operations of the Parent and its Subsidiaries taken as a whole.

2. Each Facility Document has been duly executed and delivered by each Principal Party which is a party to it. Each Facility Document constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of each Principal Party which is a party to it, enforceable against that Principal Party in accordance with its terms.

3. The execution, delivery and performance by the Parent (and in the case of clauses (d), (e) and (f) below, each Borrower) of the Facility Documents to which it is a party are


within its power and authority and have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action, as applicable, and do not: (a) require any consent or approval of its stockholders; (b) contravene its charter or by-laws, as applicable; (c) violate any provision of, or require any filing, registration, consent or approval under, any law (other than the law of the State of New York and Federal law of the United States), rule, regulation, order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award presently in effect having applicability to the Parent; (d) result in a breach of or constitute a default or require any consent under any indenture or loan or credit agreement or any other agreement, lease or instrument to which such Borrower or such Parent is a party or by which it or its properties may be bound or affected; (e) result in, or require, the creation or imposition of any Lien upon or with respect to any of the properties now owned or hereafter acquired by such Borrower or Parent; or (f) cause the Parent or any of its Subsidiaries to be in default under any such law, rule, regulation, order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award or any such indenture, agreement, lease or instrument.

4. To the best of my knowledge (after due inquiry), there are no pending or threatened actions, suits or proceedings against or affecting the Parent or any of its Subsidiaries before any court, governmental agency or arbitrator, which would, in any one case or in the aggregate, materially adversely affect the financial condition, operations, properties or business of the Parent or any of its Subsidiaries taken as a whole or the ability of the Parent to perform its obligations under the Facility Documents.

The opinions expressed herein are solely for your benefit in connection with the transactions referred to in the Credit Agreement and may not be circulated to, or relied upon by, any other Person, except that it may be circulated to any prospective Lender in accordance with the Credit Agreement and may be relied upon by any Person who, in the future, becomes a Lender; provided that each Lender may provide this opinion (i) to bank examiners and other regulatory authorities should they so request or in connection with their normal examination, (ii) to its professional advisers, (iii) pursuant to an order or legal process of any court or governmental agency, or (iv) in connection with any legal action to which such Lender is a party arising out of the transactions contemplated by the Credit Agreement. The opinions expressed herein are as of the date hereof, and I make no undertaking to supplement such opinions as facts and circumstances come to my attention or changes in law occur which could affect s
