          (6) purchase money obligations for property acquired in the ordinary
     course of business that impose restrictions on the property so acquired of
     the nature described in clause (3) of the preceding paragraph;
 
          (7) any agreement for the sale or other disposition of a Restricted
     Subsidiary of the Company that restricts distributions by such Restricted
     Subsidiary pending its sale or other disposition;
 
          (8) Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness; provided that the restrictions
     contained in the agreements governing such Permitted Refinancing
     Indebtedness are no more restrictive, taken as a whole, than those
     contained in the agreements governing the Indebtedness being refinanced;
 
          (9) Liens securing Indebtedness otherwise permitted to be incurred
     pursuant to the provisions of the covenant described above under the
     caption "-- Liens" that limit the right of the Company or any of its
     Restricted Subsidiaries to dispose of the assets subject to such Lien;

     assets or property in joint venture agreements and other similar agreements

          (12) restrictions contained in the terms of Indebtedness permitted to
     be incurred under the covenant "-- Incurrence of Indebtedness and Issuance

     restrictive than the terms contained in the Credit Facilities as in effect
     on the Issue Date; and
 
          (13) restrictions that are not materially more restrictive than
     customary provisions in comparable financings and the management of the
     Company determines that such restrictions will not materially impair the
     Company's ability to make payments as required under the Notes.
 
MERGER, CONSOLIDATION, OR SALE OF ASSETS
 
     Neither of the Issuers may, directly or indirectly: (1) consolidate or
merge with or into another Person (whether or not such Issuer is the surviving
corporation); or (2) sell, assign, transfer, convey or otherwise dispose of all
or substantially all of its properties or assets, in one or more related
transactions, to another Person; unless:
 
          (1) either: (a) such Issuer, is the surviving corporation; or (b) the

     than such Issuer) or to which such sale, assignment, transfer, conveyance
     or other disposition shall have been made is a Person organized or existing
     under the laws of the United States, any state thereof or the District of
     Columbia (provided that if the Person formed by or surviving any such
     consolidation or merger with either Issuer is a limited liability company
     or other Person other than a corporation, a corporate co-issuer shall also

     the obligations of the Company under the Notes, in the case of the Company,
     and the Indentures pursuant to agreements reasonably satisfactory to the
     applicable Trustee;
