            (5) such Legal Defeasance or Covenant Defeasance will not result in
      a breach or violation of, or constitute a default under any material
      agreement or instrument (other than this Indenture) to which the Company
      or any of the Restricted Subsidiaries is a party or by which the Company
      or any of the Restricted Subsidiaries is bound;

            (6) the Company must have delivered to the applicable Trustee an
      opinion of counsel to the effect that after the 91st day assuming no
      intervening bankruptcy, that no Holder is an insider of either of the
      Issuers following the deposit and that such deposit would not be deemed by
      a court of competent jurisdiction a transfer for the benefit of the
      Guarantor or either co-Issuer in its capacity as such, the trust funds
      will not be subject to the effect of any applicable bankruptcy,
      insolvency, reorganization or similar laws affecting creditors' rights
      generally;

            (7) the Company must deliver to the Trustee an Officers' Certificate
      stating that the deposit was not made by the Company with the intent of
      preferring the Holders of Notes over the other creditors of the Company
      with the intent of defeating, hindering, delaying or defrauding creditors
      of the Company or others; and

            (8) the Company must deliver to the Trustee an Officers' Certificate
      and an opinion of counsel, each stating that all conditions precedent
      relating to the Legal Defeasance or the Covenant Defeasance have been
      complied with.

      Notwithstanding the foregoing, the opinion of counsel required by clause
(2) above with respect to a Legal Defeasance need not be delivered if all Notes
not theretofore delivered to the Trustee for cancellation (i) have become due
and payable or (ii) will become due and payable on the maturity date within one
year, by their terms or under arrangements satisfactory to the Trustee for the
giving of notice of redemption by the Trustee in the name, and at the expense,
of the Issuers.

Section 8.05. Deposited Money and Government Securities to Be Held in Trust;
              Other Miscellaneous Provisions.
                                                                              
      Subject to Section 8.06, all money and non-callable Government Securities
(including the proceeds thereof) deposited with the Trustee (or other qualifying
trustee, collectively for purposes of this Section 8.05, the "Trustee") pursuant
to Section 8.04 in respect of the outstanding Notes shall be held in trust and
applied by the Trustee, in accordance with the provisions of such Notes and this
Indenture, to the payment, either directly or through any Paying Agent
(including the Issuers acting as Paying Agent) as the Trustee may determine, to
the Holders of such Notes of all sums due and to become due thereon in respect
of principal, premium, if any, and interest, but such money need not be
segregated from other funds except to the extent required by law.

      The Issuers and the Guarantor shall pay and indemnify the Trustee against
any tax, fee or other charge imposed on or assessed against the cash or
non-callable Government Securities deposited pursuant to Section 8.04 or the
principal and interest received in respect thereof other than any such tax, fee

outstanding Notes.

      Anything in this Article 8 to the contrary notwithstanding, the Trustee
shall deliver or pay to the Issuers from time to time upon the request of the
Issuers any money or non-callable Government Securities held by it as provided
in Section 8.04 which, in the opinion of a nationally recognized firm of
independent public accountants expressed in a written certification thereof

8.04(a)), are in excess of the amount thereof that
