     amount of the Notes outstanding to comply with any of their other covenants
     or agreements in the Indentures;
 
          (5) default under any mortgage, indenture or instrument under which
     there may be issued or by which there may be secured or evidenced any
     Indebtedness for money borrowed by the Company or any of its Restricted
     Subsidiaries(or the payment of which is guaranteed by the Company or any of
     its Restricted Subsidiaries) whether such Indebtedness or guarantee now
     exists, or is created after the date of the Indentures, if that default:
 
             (a) is caused by a failure to pay at final stated maturity the
        principal amount on such Indebtedness prior to the expiration of the
        grace period provided in such Indebtedness on the date of such default
        (a "Payment Default"); or
 
             (b) results in the acceleration of such Indebtedness prior to its
        express maturity, and, in each case, the principal amount of any such
        Indebtedness, together with the principal amount of any other such
        Indebtedness under which there has been a Payment Default or the
        maturity of which has been so accelerated, aggregates $100.0 million or
        more;
 
          (6) failure by the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to
     pay final judgments which are non-appealable aggregating in excess of
     $100.0 million (net of applicable insurance which has not been denied in
     writing by the insurer), which judgments are not paid, discharged or stayed
     for a period of 60 days; and
 
          (7) certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency with respect to the
     Company or any of its Significant Subsidiaries.
 
     In the case of an Event of Default arising from certain events of
bankruptcy or insolvency, with respect to the Company, all outstanding Notes
will become due and payable immediately without further action or notice. If any
other Event of Default occurs and is continuing, the applicable Trustee or the
Holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the then outstanding Notes may
declare all the Notes to be due and payable immediately.
 
     Holders of the Notes may not enforce the Indentures or the Notes except as
provided in the Indentures. Subject to certain limitations, holders of a
majority in principal amount of the then outstanding Notes may direct the
applicable Trustee in its exercise of any trust or power. The applicable Trustee
may withhold from holders of the Notes notice of any continuing Default or Event
of Default (except a Default or Event of Default relating to the payment of
principal or interest) if it determines that withholding notice is in their
interest.
 
     The holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Notes then
outstanding by notice to the applicable Trustee may on behalf of the holders of
all of the Notes waive any existing Default or Event of Default and its
consequences under the Indentures except a continuing Default or Event of
Default in the payment of interest on, or the principal of, the Notes.
 
     The Company will be required to deliver to the applicable Trustee annually
a statement regarding compliance with the Indentures. Upon becoming aware of any
Default or Event of Default, the Company will be required to deliver to the
applicable Trustee a statement specifying such Default or Event of Default.
