Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

Amendment to Credit Facility

 

Effective March 12, 2020, Naked Brand Group Limited (the “Company”) entered into a Deed of Amendment and Restatement (the “Restated Agreement”) that amended and restated that certain Facility Agreement, originally dated June 27, 2016, as amended from time to time, by and among Bendon Limited, as borrower (the “Borrower”), the Company and certain subsidiaries and affiliates thereof, as guarantors (collectively, the “Guarantors”), and Bank of New Zealand, as lender (the “Lender”).

 

Under the Restated Agreement, the Lender will continue to make available (i) a revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Facility”), for which the facility limit, as amended, is NZ$16.7 million (approximately US$10.5 million), and (ii) an instrument facility (the “Instrument Facility”), for which the facility limit is NZ$1.345 million (approximately US$0.846 million). The Revolving Facility presently has an outstanding principal balance of NZ$16.7 million (approximately US$10.5), the maximum amount available under the facility. The Borrower will reduce its indebtedness under the Restated Agreement by an aggregate of NZ$7.0 million (approximately US$4.4 million) in installments between March 31, 2020 and November 30, 2021, which will also reduce the facility limit under the Revolving Facility. The facilities terminate on March 12, 2022.

 

Drawings under the Revolving Facility that are prepaid by the Borrower may be re-borrowed, subject to the facility limit and certain other conditions being satisfied. Drawings in New Zealand dollars will bear interest for each interest period at a rate per annum equal to the sum of (i) the New Zealand bank bill reference rate administered by the New Zealand Financial Markets Association, as determined and adjusted in accordance with the Restated Agreement, (ii) a liquidity premium determined by the Lender from time to time and advised to the Borrower, (iii) a business basis premium published by the Lender on its website, if the interest period is greater than one month but less than three months, and (iv) 2.00% per annum. Each interest period will be three months, unless otherwise agreed by the Lender. All drawings must be repaid on the termination date of the facilities.

 

The Lender will make instruments available under the Instrument Facility, subject to the facility limit and certain other conditions being satisfied. The types of available instruments include letters of credit, bank guarantees and performance bonds. The expiration, repayment or other discharge of an instrument does not reduce the facility limit for the Instrument Facility. All instruments will expire no later than the termination date of the facilities.

 

The Borrower will pay the Lender a one-time establishment fee equal to 3% of the aggregate facility limit and will pay the Lender an annual line fee equal to 2% of the aggregate facility limit.

 

All of the obligations under the Restated Agreement are guaranteed by the Company and the other Guarantors. The obligations are secured pursuant to a general security interest granted over the assets of the Borrower, the Company and certain of the other Guarantors.

 

The Restated Agreement contains certain customary representations and covenants, including negative covenants that restrict each of the Borrower’s and Guarantors’ ability to, among other things, (i) create any security interest affecting its property, other than certain permitted security interests, (ii) dispose of all or a substantial part of its property, other than certain permitted disposals, (iii) incur, guarantee or be a creditor for any finance debt, subject to certain exceptions, (iv) make distributions, subject to certain exceptions, (v) engage in transactions with related persons, (vi) engage in mergers, acquisitions and similar transactions, (vii) transfer its jurisdiction of incorporation, (viii) form or acquire subsidiaries, or (ix) change its name. The Restated Agreement also includes financial covenants providing that (i) for any calendar month in the 12-month period preceding each fiscal quarter end, the Company’s actual sales and gross profit shall not vary adversely by more than 15% from the Company’s budget and (ii) for each calendar month, the ratio of inventory to debt under the Revolving Facility shall be more than 1.35 times until July 31, 2020 and more than 1.65 times thereafter.

Events of default under the Restated Agreement include, but are not limited to, (i) the failure to pay principal, interest or other amounts when due, subject to grace periods in certain cases, (ii) the breach of any undertaking or other obligations in the Restated Agreement or other finance documents, subject to materiality thresholds and to cure in certain cases, (iii) the breach of any representation made under the Restated Agreement or other finance documents, subject to cure in certain cases, (iv) the insolvency of the Borrower or any Guarantor, (v) the occurrence of certain events relating to the liquidation, reorganization or similar of the Borrower or any Guarantor, (vi) a material adverse change with respect to the Borrower or any Guarantor, (vii) a default with respect to certain other material indebtedness of the Borrower or any Guarantor, and (vi) certain changes in control. Upon the occurrence of any event of default, the Lender may cancel the facility, declare any drawings, advance, or other indebtedness due and payable either immediately, on demand, or on such other date as the Lender may specify, and/or require the Borrower to make a prepayment under any outstanding instrument. The Lender also may foreclose on any or all of the security interests granted by the Borrower, the Company and the other Guarantors. Upon default due to failure to pay an amount when due, the Borrower will be required to pay a default interest rate on the overdue amount equal to the interest otherwise payable on the overdue amount plus 2.00% per annum.

 

The foregoing summary of the Restated Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Restated Agreement, a copy of which is included as Exhibit 10.1 to this Report on Form 6-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

The foregoing summary of the Restated Agreement and the copy thereof attached hereto are not intended to be, and should not be relied upon, as disclosures regarding any facts and circumstances relating to the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates. The agreement contains representations and warranties by us, which were made only for purposes of the agreement and as of specified dates. The representations, warranties and covenants in the agreement were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the agreements; may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being subject to confidential disclosures that may modify, qualify or create exceptions to such representations and warranties; may be made for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between the parties to the agreements instead of establishing these matters as facts; and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to investors. In addition, information concerning the subject matter of the representations, warranties and covenants may change after the date of the agreements.

     32

 

 

10.10 Prohibitions on issue of certain Instruments

The Lender is not obliged to issue an Instrument in respect of any Beneficiary if the issue would cause a breach by the Lender of any applicable law.

 

10.11 Redrawing

Subject to compliance with the provisions of this Agreement relating to drawdown, amounts under the Instrument Facility which are repaid or prepaid in accordance with this Agreement or amounts available as a result of the cancellation or release of an Instrument shall be available for drawing or redrawing during the Availability Period for the Instrument Facility.

 

11. Ancillary Facilities
11.1 Availability

The Lender may, at its option, agree to make additional facilities available to the Obligors.

 

11.2 Documentation

Any ancillary facility will be made on the terms specified in a separate agreement to be entered into between the

Lender and the relevant Obligor(s) at the relevant time, and will be subject to the terms of that agreement.

 

12. Repayment

The Borrower will repay all outstanding Drawings on the Termination Date, in each case, together with all interest and costs payable under the Finance Documents.

 

13. Illegality

If, at any time, the Lender determines that it is, or is likely to be, or will become, unlawful or contrary to any law, treaty or directive of any agency of state or other regulatory, monetary or accounting authority to make, fund or allow to remain outstanding all or part of the Facility or any Accommodation, or to charge or receive interest at any applicable rate, or to comply with any of its obligations or exercise any of its rights under a Finance Document, then, on the Lender notifying the Borrower accordingly:

 

(a) the obligation of the Lender to make the Facility or any Accommodation available will be cancelled; and
(b) where the Facility or part of it has been made available, the Borrower will repay the Amount Outstanding either immediately or, if permitted by law, treaty or directive, on the expiry of each current Interest Period (if applicable) relating to it.
     33

 

 

14. Default interest

If the Borrower does not pay, when due, an amount payable by it under a Finance Document then, without prejudice to its other obligations, the Borrower will pay interest on that overdue amount (including interest payable under this clause) calculated from its due date to the date of its receipt by the Lender (after as well as before judgment), compounded and payable at intervals selected by the Lender at its discretion (each a Default Interest Period). This obligation to pay default interest arises without the need for a notice or demand. The rate of default interest (the Default Rate) will be the aggregate of:

 

(a) The rate of interest that would otherwise be payable pursuant to clause 8.2; and
(b) 2 percent per annum,

on the first day of the relevant Default Interest Period.

 

15. Fees
15.1 Establishment fee

[Intentionally deleted]

 

15.2 Line fee
(a) The Borrower will pay to the Lender a line fee at the rate of 2.00 per cent per annum of the Revolving Credit Facility Limit.
(b) The Borrower will pay to the Lender a line fee at the rate of 2.00 per cent per annum of the Instrument Facility Limit.
(c) Each such line fee is payable quarterly in advance from the March 2020 Effective Date to the later of the Termination Date and the date on which the Amount Outstanding is received by the Lender.
15.3 Issuance fee
(a) The Borrowers shall pay to the Lender an issuance fee in an amount equal to 1.00% of the Maximum Liability of the Lender per annum under each Instrument as specified by the Lender in accordance with its current trade terms relating to such Instruments.
(b) Such issuance fees shall be payable quarterly in advance (starting on the date of issue of that Instrument) until such time as the relevant Instrument is formally cancelled by the Lender (which will be deemed to occur after the Instrument expires). These issuance fees are subject to review at the Lender’s sole discretion.
(c) Other fees may be payable in respect of Instruments provided by the Lender as specified by the Lender in accordance with its current trade terms relating to such Instruments or as otherwise agreed with a Borrower. These fees are subject to review at the Lender’s sole discretion.
     34

 

 

15.4 No refund  

No fee payable by the Borrower is refundable in any circumstance, even where payable in advance.

 

16. Taxes
16.1 Gross up

If:

 

(a) an Obligor or a person on its behalf is required by law to make a deduction or withholding on account of tax from any amount paid or payable by it under a Finance Document; or
(b) the Lender or a person on its behalf is required by law to make any payment for or on account of tax (other than tax on overall net income of the Lender) on or in relation to any amount received or receivable by it under a Finance Document,

then the relevant Obligor will:

 

(c) ensure that any such deduction or withholding does not exceed the legal minimum and shall pay the amount required to be deducted or withheld to the relevant authority before the date any penalty begins to accrue; and
(d) increase the actual amount paid to the Lender to the extent necessary to ensure that after any such deduction, withholding or payment is made, the Lender actually receives and retains on the due date (free from any liability in respect of any such deduction, withholding or payment, and ignoring any amount that the Lender is deemed to have received by reason of any legislation) a net amount equal to the amount that it would have received and so retained had no such deduction, withholding or payment been required to be made.
16.2 Tax credit

If the Lender receives the benefit of a final tax refund or credit resulting from an Obligor having made a deduction or withholding referred to in, or in respect of which an Obligor has made an increased payment under, clause 16.1 (Gross up), it will pay to the relevant Obligor such part of that benefit as, in the Lender’s reasonable opinion, will leave it in a no less favourable position (after that payment, and taking account of any additional payment made to it under clause 16.1 (Gross up) and any tax payable by it on that additional payment) than it would have been in if no deduction or withholding or payment had been required. In doing so, the Lender:

 

(a) will be the sole judge of the amount of any such benefit and the date on which it is received and paid;
(b) has absolute discretion as to the order and manner in which it employs or claims tax credits and allowances available to it and is under no obligation to claim relief from any of its tax liabilities in respect of any such deduction or withholding in priority to any other claims, credits or deductions available to it; and
(c) has no obligation to disclose to the Obligor any information regarding its tax affairs or computations.
     35

 

 

16.3 New Zealand Resident Withholding Tax

The Lender:

 

(a) RWT Exemption Certificate

confirms to the Borrower that, as at the date of this Agreement (or, if later, as at the date it becomes party to this Agreement), it is a person of the type listed in section 32E(2)(a) to (h) of the Tax Administration Act 1994, and holds an RWT Exemption Certificate;

 

(b) Undertaking to maintain certificate

undertakes to the Borrower to use reasonable endeavours to maintain the currency of its RWT Exemption Certificate until the Termination Date, provided that the Lender is lawfully able to do so;

 

(c) Obligation to notify

agrees to notify the Borrower promptly if it ceases to hold, or ceases to be entitled to hold, an RWT Exemption Certificate, following which the Lender and the Borrower shall negotiate in good faith for a period not exceeding 30 days with a view to agreeing upon an arrangement that will ensure, so far as possible, that the Borrower is not disadvantaged, and the Lender is not advantaged, by reason of the loss of the RWT Exemption Certificate. If no such arrangement is agreed within the 30 day period, clause 16.1 (Gross up) will continue to apply.

 

16.4 FATCA

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, nothing in clause 16.1 or 17 shall apply to the extent the relevant amount relates to a FATCA Deduction required to be made by a party to this Agreement.

 

16.5 FATCA Information
(a) Subject to paragraph (c) below, each of the Lender and an Obligor (in this clause a Party) shall, within ten Business Days of a reasonable request by another Party:
(i) confirm to that other Party whether it is:
(A)  a FATCA Exempt Party; or
(B)  not a FATCA Exempt Party;
(ii) supply to that other Party such forms, documentation and other information relating to its status under FATCA as that other Party reasonably requests for the purposes of that other Party’s compliance with FATCA;
(iii) supply to that other Party such forms, documentation and other information relating to its status as that other Party reasonably requests for the purposes of that other Party’s compliance with any other law, regulation, or exchange of information regime.
     36

 

  

(b) If a Party confirms to another Party pursuant to paragraph (a)(i) above that it is a FATCA Exempt Party and it subsequently becomes aware that it is not or has ceased to be a FATCA Exempt Party, that Party shall notify that other Party reasonably promptly.
(c) Paragraph (a) above shall not oblige any Party to do anything, which would or might in its reasonable opinion constitute a breach of:
(i) any law or regulation;
(ii) any fiduciary duty; or
(iii) any duty of confidentiality.
(d) If a Party fails to confirm whether or not it is a FATCA Exempt Party or to supply forms, documentation or other information requested in accordance with paragraph (a)(i) or (ii) above (including, for the avoidance of doubt, where paragraph (c) above applies), then such Party shall be treated for the purposes of the Finance Documents (and payments under them) as if it is not a FATCA Exempt Party until such time as the Party in question provides the requested confirmation, forms, documentation or other information.
(e) If an Obligor is a US Tax Obligor or the Lender or the Borrower reasonably believes that its obligations under FATCA or any other applicable law or regulation require it, the Lender shall, within ten Business Days of:
(i) where an Obligor is a US Tax Obligor and the Lender is Bank of New Zealand, the date of this Agreement;
(ii) where an Obligor is a US Tax Obligor on the date of any assignment by the Lender pursuant to clause 25.1 and the Lender is not Bank of New Zealand, the date of that assignment;
(iii) the date a new US Tax Obligor accedes as an Obligor; or
(iv) where an Obligor is not a US Tax Obligor, the date of a request from the Lender,

supply to the Borrower:

 

(v) a withholding certificate on Form W-8, Form W-9 or any other relevant form; or
(vi) any withholding statement or other document, authorisation or waiver as the Lender may require to certify or establish the status of such Lender under FATCA or that other law or regulation.
(f) The Lender shall provide any withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver it receives from any other person pursuant to paragraph (e) above to the Borrower.
(g) If any withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver provided to the Borrower pursuant to paragraph (e) or (f) above is or becomes materially inaccurate or incomplete, that Lender shall promptly update it and provide such updated withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver to the Borrower unless it is unlawful for the Lender to do so (in which case the Lender shall promptly notify the Borrower). The Lender shall provide any such updated withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver to the Borrower.
(h) The Borrower may rely on any withholding certificate, withholding statement, document, authorisation or waiver it receives from a Lender pursuant to paragraph (e) or (g) above without further verification. The Borrower shall not be liable for any action taken by it under or in connection with paragraphs (e), (f) or (g) above.
     37

 

 

 

16.6 FATCA Deduction
(a) Each Party may make any FATCA Deduction it is required to make by FATCA, and any payment required in connection with that FATCA Deduction, and no Party shall be required to increase any payment in respect of which it makes such a FATCA Deduction or otherwise compensate the recipient of the payment for that FATCA Deduction.
(b) Each Party shall promptly, upon becoming aware that it must make a FATCA Deduction (or that there is any change in the rate or the basis of such FATCA Deduction), notify the Party to whom it is making the payment and, in addition, shall notify the Borrower and the Lender if appropriate.
16.7 GST

If any supply by the Lender to the Borrower in relation to any Finance Document is, at the time of supply, subject to GST, the Borrower will, subject to receipt of a valid tax invoice, pay to the Lender an amount equal to the applicable goods and services tax in addition to the consideration for that supply.

 

Where a Finance Document requires any party to reimburse the Lender for any costs or expenses, such costs or expenses shall include any indirect tax (including GST) incurred by the Lender in respect of those costs or expenses save to the extent that the Lender is entitled to a repayment or credit in respect of the indirect tax. Where applicable, the Lender will promptly provide the party with a tax invoice complying with the relevant indirect tax legislation.

 

16.8 Stamp duty

The Obligors must:

 

(a) pay; and
(b) within 3 Business Days of demand, indemnify the Lender against any cost, expense, loss or liability the Lender incurs in relation to,

all stamp duty, registration or other similar tax payable in respect of any Finance Document.

 

16.9 Notice of legal requirements

If a party is required to make a deduction, withholding or payment for or on account of tax or on another account, it shall promptly notify each other party immediately.

 

     38

 

 

16.10 Tax receipts

Promptly after the making by an Obligor of a deduction or withholding, the Borrower will deliver to the Lender a receipt or other documentation reasonably satisfactory to the Lender evidencing the deduction or withholding.

 

16.11 Limitation for default by Lender

Nothing in this clause 16 shall be construed as requiring an Obligor to pay an amount to the Lender on account of a tax which is a penalty or interest payable in connection with the Lender’s failure to pay an amount to the revenue in any jurisdiction after receiving it from an Obligor.

 

17. Increased costs
17.1 Increased costs

If, at any time, as a result of:

 

(a) the introduction of, or a change in, a law, treaty or directive of an agency of state or other regulatory, monetary or accounting authority, or in its interpretation by the agency or authority charged with its administration, or by a court of competent jurisdiction (including the implementation or application of, or compliance with, any document that forms part of the international capital or regulatory framework for banks published by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision but excluding Basel III); or
(b) compliance by the Lender or by a person with whom the Lender may have a loan, swap or other funding or participation arrangement with a directive of an agency of state or other regulatory, monetary or accounting authority,

in each case after the date of this Agreement (or, in relation to a person becoming party to this Agreement subsequently, the date it becomes party to this Agreement) the Lender determines that:

 

(c) the cost to it of making, funding or maintaining the Facility or any Accommodation or any other amount under a Finance Document, or all or any of the amounts comprised in a class of advances formed by or including the Facility or any Accommodation or any other amount is increased; or
(d) an amount payable to it or its effective return under a Finance Document is reduced; or
(e) there is a reduction in the effective rate of return on its overall capital that, in its view, is attributable to either of paragraphs (a) or (b) above applying in relation to its obligations under a Finance Document or to any class of obligations of which they form part; or
(f) it makes a payment or forgoes any interest or other return on or calculated by reference to a sum received or receivable by it from a Relevant Party under a Finance Document in an amount that the Lender considers material,

then, and in each case (whether or not the Lender is aware at the date of this Agreement that any such introduction, change or directive will subsequently take effect):

 

(g) the Lender will notify the Borrower; and

on demand from time to time by the Lender, the Borrower will pay to the Lender, the amount certified by the Lender to be necessary to compensate it (and except to the extent that the Borrower is already liable to compensate it under this Agreement) for that increased cost, reduction, payment or forgone interest or other return (or that portion of it as in the Lender’s opinion, is attributable to the Facility or any Accommodation or the Lender’s obligations under a Finance Document) (if requested by the Borrower, this certificate will provide reasonable details of the composition of this amount).

 

No demand may be made under this clause 17.1 in relation to any increased cost arising in respect of tax or as a consequence of the wilful misconduct or negligence of the Lender.

 

     39

 

 

 

17.2 Minimisation

 

If the Lender has acted in good faith, an amount certified under sub-clause 17.1 (Increased costs) above will be payable regardless of whether an increased cost, reduction, payment or forgone interest or other return referred to in that clause could have been avoided.

 

17.3 Survival of obligations

 

The obligations of the Borrower under sub-clause 17.1 (Increased costs) above are to survive termination of the Facility and payment of all other indebtedness due under any Finance Document.

 

17.4 Changes in market conditions

 

If, by reason of circumstances affecting any relevant interbank market generally, it is or may be impossible for the Lender to obtain the relevant currency in that market (and accordingly it is impossible for it to make, fund or maintain the Facility or any Accommodation or any other amount under a Finance Document, or all or any of the amounts comprised in a class of advances formed by or including the Facility or any Accommodation) for any period, the Lender is to notify the Borrower promptly and:

 

(a) if the Accommodation has not been made, the obligation of the Lender to make the Accommodation available will be suspended; and
     
(b) if the Accommodation has been made, the Borrower will repay the Accommodation and all other indebtedness of the Borrower under each Finance Document either immediately or, as the Lender elects, on the next date for payment of interest.

 

Without prejudice to the Borrower's obligations to repay, the Borrower and the Lender are to negotiate in good faith with a view to agreeing terms for making the Facility available from another source. However, the Lender is under no obligation to agree to terms or to continue those negotiations if terms are not agreed promptly.

 

18. Indemnities

 

 

18.1     General indemnity

 

Subject to any mandatory law, the Obligors will indemnify the Lender against each cost incurred by it as a result of:

 

(a) the occurrence or continuance of an Event of Default; or

 

     40

 

 

(b) an amount payable by the Obligors under a Finance Document not being paid when due, whether by prepayment, acceleration or otherwise (but, so far as appropriate, credit is to be given for amounts, if any, of default interest paid under the Finance Document); or
     
(c) a prepayment of a Drawing being made or becoming due, or another amount being paid or becoming due, otherwise than on the last day of an Interest Period relating to it (whether or not that payment is permitted or required under this Agreement); or
     
(d) a Drawing not being drawn on the requested Drawing Date (other than by reason of default by the Lender); or
     
(e) any Advance not being advanced on the requested Drawing Date (other than by reason of default by the Lender); or
     
(f) an enquiry by a Government Agency involving an Obligor; or
     
(g) reliance by the Lender (acting reasonably) on any communication made to it via electronic mail by an authorised signatory of the Borrower,

 

by payment on demand to the Lender, of the amount that the Lender certifies is required to compensate the Lender for that cost, including each cost incurred in liquidating or re-employing:

 

(h) deposits or other funds acquired or arranged to fund or maintain a Drawing or any Advance or any part of it; and
     
(i) any transaction entered into in anticipation of drawdown and/or disbursement of a Drawing or any Advance.

 

18.2 Currency indemnity

 

If an amount due from a Relevant Party under a Finance Document or under a suit, action or proceeding has to be converted from the currency (the first currency) in which it is payable into another currency (the second currency) for the purposes of:

 

(a) making or filing a claim or proof against a Relevant Party; or
     
(b) obtaining an order or judgment in any court; or
     
(c) enforcing an order or judgment,

 

then the Obligors will indemnify the Lender by payment on demand in immediately available funds, in the currency stipulated by the Lender, against each cost incurred by the Lender as a result of any discrepancy between:

 

(d) the rate of exchange used for that purpose to convert the sum in question from the first currency into the second currency; and
     
(e) the rate of exchange at which the Lender may, in the ordinary course of business, purchase the first currency with the second currency.

 

Each amount due under this clause will be due as a separate debt and will not be affected by, or merged into, a judgment obtained for other sums due.

 

     41

 

 

18.3 Indemnities irrevocable

 

The above indemnities are unconditional and irrevocable, and will survive both termination of this Agreement and payment of all other indebtedness due under the Finance Documents.

 

19. Costs

 

 

 

The Borrower will pay each cost incurred by the Lender in connection with:

 

(a) the preparation, negotiation, entry into, execution, stamping, registration and release of each Finance Document;

 

(b) each amendment to, waiver or consent in respect of, or discharge or release of or under, a Finance Document; and

 

(c) the exercise, protection, investigation or enforcement of the Lender's rights under a Finance Document;

 

in each case, on demand and on a full indemnity basis. The costs in relation to (a) and (b) must be reasonable.

 

20. Cross guarantee

 

 

 

20.1 Guarantee

 

Each Obligor unconditionally and irrevocably jointly and severally guarantees to the Lender due payment by each other Obligor (in this clause, referred to as the Debtor), of the Guaranteed Indebtedness.

 

20.2 Payment

 

Each Obligor undertakes to the Lender that if, for any reason, a Debtor does not pay when due (whether by acceleration or otherwise) any of its Guaranteed Indebtedness, it will pay the relevant amount to the Lender immediately on demand.

 

20.3 Unenforceability of obligations

 

As a separate and continuing undertaking, each Obligor unconditionally and irrevocably undertakes to the Lender that, should any Guaranteed Indebtedness not be recoverable from an Obligor under any Finance Document for any reason, including a provision of any Finance Document or an obligation (or purported obligation) of an Obligor to pay any Guaranteed Indebtedness being or becoming void, voidable, unenforceable or otherwise invalid, and whether or not that reason is or was known to the Lender, and whether or not that reason is:

 

(a) a defect in or lack of powers of that Obligor or the Debtor or any other person, or the irregular exercise of those powers; or
     
(b) a defect in or lack of authority by a person purporting to act on behalf of that Obligor or the Debtor or any other person; or

 

     42

 

 

(c) a legal or other limitation (whether under the Limitation Act 2010 or otherwise), disability or incapacity of that Obligor or the Debtor; or
     
(d) the liquidation, administration, amalgamation, change in status, constitution or control, reconstruction or reorganisation of that Obligor or the Debtor (or the commencement of steps to effect the same),

 

that Obligor will, as a sole and independent obligation, pay to the Lender on demand the amount that the Lender would otherwise have been able to recover (on a full indemnity basis). The expression "Guaranteed Indebtedness" includes any indebtedness that would have been included in that expression but for anything referred to in this clause.

 

20.4 Suspense account

 

All amounts from time to time received by the Lender in respect of the Guaranteed Indebtedness of a Debtor from an Obligor other than the Borrower or otherwise on account of any Obligor may be placed in a suspense account (the Suspense Account) with a view to preserving the rights of the Lender, to the extent permitted by law, to prove for the whole of the Guaranteed Indebtedness of the Debtor in the event of any proceeding in, or analogous to, liquidation, administration, amalgamation, change in status, constitution or control, reconstruction or reorganisation of the Debtor or any other Obligor. Any interest paid on the amount for the time being in the Suspense Account shall not be payable by the Lender to any Obligor.

 

20.5 Liability as sole principal debtor

 

As between each Obligor and the Lender (but without affecting the obligations of a Debtor) each Obligor is liable under this clause in relation to the Guaranteed Indebtedness as a sole and principal debtor and not as a surety.

 

20.6 No discharge

 

(a) No Obligor is discharged, nor are its obligations affected, by:

 

(i) any time, indulgence, waiver or consent at any time given to a Relevant Party or another person; or
     
(ii) an amendment (however fundamental) to, or replacement of, a Finance Document or to another security interest, guarantee or other agreement (whether or not that amendment increases the liability of that Obligor); or
     
(iii) the existence, validity or enforceability of, or the enforcement of or failure to enforce, or the release of any person or property from any Finance Document or other security interest, guarantee or agreement; or
     
(iv) the liquidation, amalgamation, change in status, constitution or control, reconstruction or reorganisation of any Relevant Party or another person (or the commencement of steps to effect any of these); or
     
(v) anything else whatever.

 

The Lender is not liable to any Obligor in respect of any of these matters, even though the Obligors' rights in subrogation or otherwise may be prejudiced as a result.

 

     43

 

 

(b) Each Obligor acknowledges and accepts that:

 

(i) the Lender may release one or more Obligor's obligations under this Agreement without the release of each other Obligor;
     
(ii) release by the Lender of one Obligor from its obligations under this Agreement does not constitute release of the obligations of any other Obligor; and
     
(iii) in any case where an Obligor is released by the Lender from its obligations under this Agreement, the Lender's rights and remedies against each remaining Obligor are preserved.

 

20.7 Continuing guarantee

 

This guarantee and each Obligor's obligations under this Agreement:

 

(a) are a continuing security, notwithstanding intermediate payments, settlement of accounts or payments or anything else;
     
(b) are in addition to, and not to be merged in, any security interest, guarantee or other agreement, whenever in existence, in favour of any person; and
     
(c) will remain in full force and effect until the execution by the Lender of an unconditional discharge of each Obligor's obligations under this Agreement.

 

20.8 No competition

 

No Obligor will, without the written consent of the Lender:

 

(a) take, accept or hold a security interest from another Obligor or, in relation to Guaranteed Indebtedness, from another person; or
     
(b) take steps to recover (whether directly or by set-off, counterclaim or otherwise) or accept money or other property, or exercise or enforce rights in respect of, any indebtedness of another Obligor to that Obligor arising in any way or, in relation to Guaranteed Indebtedness, indebtedness of another person to that Obligor; or
     
(c) claim, prove or accept payment in composition by, or a liquidation of, another Obligor or, in relation to Guaranteed Indebtedness, another person,

 

and until such time as the Guaranteed Indebtedness has been fully paid, each Obligor waives all rights of subrogation to which it would otherwise be entitled by reason of performance of its obligations under the guarantee in this clause or any other guarantee given in respect of indebtedness of an Obligor. If, notwithstanding this sub-clause, an Obligor holds or receives any such security interest, money or property, that Obligor will pay or transfer it to the Lender immediately and, pending that payment or transfer, will hold it on trust for the Lender.

 

     44
