an item of proposed Indebtedness meets the criteria of more than one of the
categories of Permitted Debt described in clauses (1) through (11) above, or is
entitled to be incurred pursuant to the first paragraph of this covenant, the
Company shall be permitted to classify and from time to time to reclassify such
item of Indebtedness on the date of its incurrence in any manner that complies
with this covenant. For avoidance of doubt, Indebtedness incurred pursuant to a
single agreement, instrument, program, facility or line of credit may be
classified as Indebtedness arising in part under one of the clauses listed
above, and in part under any one or more of the clauses listed above, to the
extent that such Indebtedness satisfies the criteria for such clauses.

               Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall any Restricted
Subsidiary of the Company consummate a Subordinated Debt Financing or a
Preferred Stock Financing. A "Subordinated Debt Financing" or a "Preferred Stock
Financing", as the case may be, with respect to any Restricted Subsidiary of the
Company shall mean a public offering or private placement (whether pursuant to
Rule 144A under the Securities Act or otherwise) of Subordinated Notes or
preferred stock (whether or not such preferred stock constitutes Disqualified
Stock), as the case may be, of such Restricted Subsidiary to one or more
purchasers (other than to one or more Affiliates of the Company). "Subordinated
Notes" with respect to any Restricted Subsidiary of the Company shall mean
Indebtedness of such Restricted Subsidiary that is contractually subordinated in
right of payment to any other Indebtedness of such Restricted Subsidiary
(including, without limitation, Indebtedness under the Credit Facilities). The
foregoing limitation shall not apply to (i) any Indebtedness or preferred stock
of any Person existing at the time such Person is merged with or into or became
a Subsidiary of the Company; provided that such Indebtedness or preferred stock
was not incurred or issued in connection with, or in contemplation of, such
Person merging with or into, or becoming a Subsidiary of, the Company and (ii)
any Indebtedness or preferred stock of a Restricted Subsidiary issued in
connection with, and as part of the consideration for, an acquisition, whether
by stock purchase, asset sale, merger or otherwise, in each case involving such
Restricted Subsidiary, which Indebtedness or preferred stock is issued to the
seller or sellers of such stock or assets; provided that such Restricted
Subsidiary is not obligated to register such Indebtedness or preferred stock
under the Securities Act or obligated to provide information pursuant to Rule
144A under the Securities Act.

Section 4.11. Limitation on Asset Sales.

               The Company shall not, and shall not permit any of its Restricted
Subsidiaries to, consummate an Asset Sale unless:

               (1) the Company or a Restricted Subsidiary of the Company, as the
case may be, receives consideration at the time of such Asset Sale at least
equal to the fair market value of the assets or Equity Interests issued or sold
or otherwise disposed of;
