           (8) Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness; provided that the

           (9) Liens securing Indebtedness otherwise permitted to be incurred
pursuant to the provisions of the covenant described above under Section 4.14
that limit the right of the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to

Subsidiaries to, directly or indirectly, create, incur, issue, assume, guarantee
or otherwise become directly or indirectly liable, contingently or otherwise,
with respect to (collectively, "incur") any Indebtedness (including Acquired
Debt) and the Company shall not issue any Disqualified Stock and shall not
permit any of their Restricted Subsidiaries to issue any shares of preferred
stock unless the Leverage Ratio would have been not greater than 8.75 to 1.0
determined on a pro forma basis (including a pro forma application of the net
proceeds therefrom), as if the additional Indebtedness had been incurred, or the
Disqualified Stock had been issued, as the case may be, at the beginning of the
most recently ended fiscal quarter.
