to any issue or issues of Indebtedness of the Company or any Significant
Subsidiary having an outstanding principal amount of $10 million or more in
the aggregate for all such issues of all such Persons, whether such
Indebtedness now exists or shall hereafter be created, (I) an event of default

entry of the final judgment or order that causes the aggregate amount for all
such final judgments or orders outstanding and not paid or discharged against
all such Persons to exceed $10 million during which a stay of enforcement of
such final judgment or order, by reason of a pending appeal or otherwise,

Company or any Significant Subsidiary (A) commences a voluntary case under any
applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law now or hereafter in
effect, or consents to the entry of an order for relief in an involuntary case
under any such law, (B) consents to the appointment of or taking possession by

  If an Event of Default (other than an Event of Default specified in clause
(g) or (h) above that occurs with respect to the Company or an Obligor) occurs
and is continuing under the Indenture, the Trustee or the Holders of at least
25% in aggregate principal amount of the Notes, then outstanding, by written
notice to the Obligors (and to the Trustee if such notice is given by the
Holders), may, and the Trustee at the request of such Holders shall, declare
the Accreted Value of, premium, if any, and accrued interest on the Notes to
be immediately due and payable. Upon a declaration of acceleration, such
Accreted Value, premium, if any, and accrued interest shall be immediately due
and payable. In the event of a declaration of acceleration because an Event of
Default set forth in clause (e) above has occurred and is continuing, such
declaration of acceleration shall be automatically rescinded and annulled if
the event of default triggering such Event of Default pursuant to clause (e)
shall be remedied or cured by the Company or the relevant Significant
Subsidiary or waived by the holders of the relevant
