If we consolidate or merge with or into any other entity or sell or lease all or substantially all of our assets, according to the terms and conditions of the indenture, the resulting or acquiring entity will be substituted for us in the indenture with the same effect as if it had been an original party to the indenture. As a result, the successor entity may exercise our rights and powers under the indenture, in our name and we will be released from all our liabilities and obligations under the indenture and under the notes.
Events Of Default. The indenture provides that each of the following constitutes an event of default:
failure to pay interest on a note within 15 days after the due date for such payment (whether or not prohibited by the subordination provisions of the indenture);
failure to pay principal on a note within 15 days after the due date for such payment (whether or not prohibited by the subordination provisions of the indenture);
our failure to observe or perform any material covenant, condition or agreement or our breach of any material representation or warranty, but only after we have been given notice of such failure or breach and such failure or breach is not cured within 60 days after our receipt of notice;
defaults in certain of our other payment obligations that result in such payment obligations becoming or being declared immediately due and payable and such declaration is not rescinded or annulled within 60 days after our receipt of notice of such declaration; and
certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency with respect to us.
If any event of default occurs and is continuing (other than an event of default involving certain events of bankrupt- cy or insolvency with respect to us), the trustee or the holders of at least a majority in principal amount of the then out- standing notes may by notice to us declare the unpaid principal of and any accrued interest on the notes to be due and payable immediately. So long as any senior debt is outstanding, however, and a payment blockage on the notes is in effect, a declaration of this kind will not be effective, and neither the trustee nor the holders of notes may enforce the indenture or the notes, except as otherwise set forth above in “- Subordination”. In the event senior debt is outstanding and no payment blockage on the notes is in effect, a declaration of this kind will not become effective until the later of:
the day which is five business days after the receipt by us and the holders of senior debt of such writ-
ten notice of acceleration; or
the date of acceleration of any senior debt.
In the case of an event of default arising from certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency, with respect to us, all out- standing notes will become due and payable without further action or notice.
Holders of the notes may not enforce the indenture or the notes except as provided in the indenture. Subject to cer- tain limitations, holders of a majority in principal amount of the then outstanding notes may direct the trustee in its ex- ercise of any trust power. The 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 on the notes) if the trustee in good faith determines that withholding notice would have no material adverse effect on the holders.
The holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the notes then outstanding by notice to the 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 indenture, except:
a continuing default or event of default in the payment of interest on, or the principal of, a note held
by a non-consenting holder; or
a waiver that would conflict with any judgment or decree.
We are required to deliver to the trustee within 120 days of the end of our fiscal year a certificate regarding com- pliance with the indenture, and we are required, upon becoming aware of any default or event of default, to deliver to the trustee a certificate specifying such default or event of default and what action we are taking or propose to take with respect to the default or event of default.
Amendment, Supplement and Waiver. Except as provided in this prospectus or the indenture, the terms of the in- denture or the notes then outstanding may be amended or supplemented with the consent of the holders of at least a ma- jority in principal amount of the notes then outstanding, and any existing default or compliance with any provision of
