its Subsidiaries will pay and discharge promptly:

                  (i) all taxes, assessments, fees and other governmental
         charges or levies imposed upon it or upon any of its properties,
         assets, income, profits or franchises before the same shall become

         warehousemen, landlords and other similar Persons for labor, materials,
         supplies and rentals which, if unpaid, might by law become a Lien or
         charge upon its properties or assets;

provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to pay any of the
foregoing if (x) the amount, applicability or validity thereof shall currently

Company shall have made such reserve or other appropriate provision, if any, as
shall be required by generally accepted accounting principles and (z) insofar as

assets may be affected thereby, such effect does not and will not have a
material and adverse effect on the Company.

law, any liability imposed upon it pursuant to Sections 4062, 4063 and 4064 of
