                                    provide for additional term loans and/or
                                    revolving loan facilities, at the election
                                    of Borrowers (collectively, the "Incremental
                                    Facility"), in an aggregate principal amount
                                    of up to $75,000,000 (the loans thereunder
                                    are the "Incremental Loans"). The
                                    Incremental Facility shall not initially be
                                    effective but may be activated, in whole or
                                    in part, subject to certain limits, at any
                                    time prior to December 31, 2003 at the
                                    request of the Borrowers with consent
                                    required only from those Lenders (including
                                    new Lenders that are reasonably acceptable
                                    to the Administrative Agent and the
                                    Borrowers) that agree, in their sole
                                    discretion, to participate in such
                                    Incremental Facility. In the event that the
                                    Term B Loans are optionally prepaid or the
                                    Revolving Facility (as defined below) is
                                    optionally permanently reduced, up to
                                    $37,500,000 of the amount so prepaid or
                                    reduced may be applied to increase the
                                    $75,000,000 of incremental capacity
                                    described above. The Incremental Facility
                                    will be governed by the covenants,
                                    conditions to borrowing, interest periods,
                                    representations and warranties and events of
                                    default contained in the Credit
                                    Documentation; provided, however, that the
                                    weighted average life and final maturity
                                    shall not be less than that of the Revolving
