trustee, it holds the Collateral under the Collateral Documents for the benefit of and in trust for itself and the Lenders.

       (1) Each Pledgor shall be entitled to exercise any and all voting or consensual rights and powers and stock purchase or subscription rights or other similar rights to acquire equity interests (but any such exercise by a Pledgor of stock purchase or subscription rights or other similar rights to acquire equity interests may be made only from funds of such Pledgor not comprising part of the “Collateral” (as defined in the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement) relating or pertaining (to the extent that such Pledgor is otherwise entitled to exercise such rights) to the Collateral constituting stock or any part thereof for any purpose; provided, however, that each Pledgor agrees that it will not exercise any such rights or powers in any manner which would have a material adverse effect on the value of such Collateral or any part thereof.
 
       (2) Each Pledgor shall, subject to the proviso below, be entitled to receive and retain (to the extent that such Pledgor is otherwise entitled to receive and retain dividends in respect of the Collateral) any and all lawful dividends payable in respect of the Collateral constituting stock and any Additional Rights which are paid in cash by any Issuer if such dividends are permitted by the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement; provided, however, that all dividends, distributions and Additional Rights in respect of such Collateral or any part thereof made in shares of stock or other property or otherwise representing any return of capital, whether resulting from a subdivision, combination or reclassification of such Collateral or any part thereof or received in exchange for such Collateral or any part thereof or as a result of any merger, consolidation, acquisition or other exchange of assets to which any Issuer may be a party or otherwise or as a result of any exercise of any stock purchase or subscription right, shall be and become part of the Collateral hereunder and, if received by any Pledgor, shall be forthwith delivered to the Administrative Agent in due form for transfer (i.e., endorsed in blank or accompanied by stock or bond powers executed in blank) to be held for the purposes of this Agreement.
 
       (3) The Administrative Agent shall execute and deliver, or cause to be executed and delivered, to each Pledgor, all such proxies, powers of attorney, dividend orders and other instruments as such Pledgor may request for the purpose of enabling such Pledgor to exercise the rights and powers which it is entitled to exercise pursuant to clause (1) above and to receive the dividends and Additional Rights which it is authorized to retain pursuant to clause (2) above.
 
       (4) Subject to any restrictions contained herein or in any other Loan Document, each Pledgor shall be entitled to (a) collect all regular payments made or proceeds received with respect to Collateral constituting the Subsidiary Notes

or relating to any other indebtedness pledged hereunder and (b) enforce and prosecute all rights and remedies available under any of the Subsidiary Notes or Subsidiary Security Agreements, or under the documents governing or evidencing any other indebtedness pledged hereunder.

          (b)  Upon written notice from the Administrative Agent during the existence of a Default, and for so long as the same shall be continuing, all rights and powers which the Pledgors are entitled to exercise pursuant to Section 5(a)(1) hereof, and all rights of the Pledgors to receive and retain dividends pursuant to Section 5(a)(2) hereof, and all rights of the Pledgors to receive payments pursuant to Section 5(a)(4) hereof, shall forthwith cease, and all such rights and powers shall thereupon become vested in the Administrative Agent which shall have, during the continuance of such Default, the sole and exclusive authority to exercise such rights and powers and to receive such dividends and payments. Any and all money and other property paid over to or received by the Administrative Agent pursuant to this paragraph (b) shall be retained by the Administrative Agent as additional Collateral hereunder and applied in accordance with the provisions hereof.

          6.     Remedies. Whenever a Default shall exist and be continuing, the Administrative Agent may exercise from time to time any rights and remedies available to it under the Uniform Commercial Code as in effect in New York or otherwise available to it. Without limiting the foregoing, whenever a Default shall exist and be continuing the Administrative Agent (a) may, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, without notice, advertisement, hearing or process of law of any kind, (i) sell any or all of the Collateral, free of all rights and claims of the Pledgors therein and thereto, at any public or private sale or brokers’ board and (ii) bid for and purchase any or all of the Collateral at any such public sale; (b) shall have the right, for and in the name, place and stead of the Pledgors, to execute endorsements, assignments, stock powers and other instruments of conversion, conveyance or transfer with respect to all or any of the Collateral; and (c) may, with respect to the Collateral consisting of the Subsidiary Notes or relating to any other indebtedness pledged hereunder, declare the underlying loans immediately due, payable and collectible without notice to any Pledgor, regardless of maturity, and in that event the underlying loans and obligations shall become immediately due, payable, and collectible; and thereupon the Administrative Agent may then or at any time thereafter, in addition to the remedies of the Administrative Agent and other Secured Parties set forth in the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, collect from any Pledgor any payments or collections theretofore received by such Pledgor pursuant to Section 5 hereof, or sell, assign, transfer and deliver the whole of the Collateral or any part thereof, or additions thereto, or substitutions therefor, in such order as the Administrative Agent may elect, at public or private sale, at such price or prices, and upon such terms and conditions as the Administrative Agent in its sole and absolute discretion may determine, without demand, advertisement or notice of any kind. Each Pledgor hereby expressly waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any and all notices, advertisements, hearings or process of law in connection with the exercise by the Administrative Agent of any of its rights and remedies during the continuance of a Default. If any notification of intended disposition of any of the Collateral is required by law, such notification, if mailed, shall be deemed reasonably and properly given if mailed by certified or registered mail at least twenty (20) days before such disposition, postage prepaid, addressed to the Company, either at the address of the Company shown below or at any other address of the Company appearing on the records of the Administrative Agent. Any proceeds of any of the Collateral may be applied by

Company Pledge Agreement
8


 

the Administrative Agent to the payment of expenses in connection with the Collateral, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and legal expenses, and any balance of such proceeds may be applied by the Administrative Agent toward the payment of such of the Liabilities, and in such order of application, as the Administrative Agent may from time to time elect (and, after payment in full of all Liabilities, any excess shall be delivered to the Company or as a court of competent jurisdiction shall direct).

          The Administrative Agent is hereby authorized to comply with any limitation or restriction in connection with any sale of Collateral as it may be advised by counsel is necessary in order to (x) avoid any violation of applicable law (including, without limitation, compliance with such procedures as may restrict the number of prospective bidders and purchasers and/or further restrict such prospective bidders or purchasers to persons or entities who will represent and agree that they are purchasing for their own account for investment and not with a view to the distribution or resale of such Collateral) or (y) obtain any required approval of the sale or of the purchase by any governmental regulatory authority or official, and each Pledgor agrees that such compliance shall not result in such sale being considered or deemed not to have been made in a commercially reasonable manner and that the Administrative Agent shall not be liable or accountable to any Pledgor for any discount allowed by reason of the fact that such Collateral is sold in compliance with any such limitation or restriction.

          7.     Termination or Release. This Agreement and the security interest granted hereby shall terminate when all the Liabilities have been indefeasibly paid in full and the Lenders have no further commitment to lend under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement. The Administrative Agent shall execute and deliver to the Pledgor, at the Pledgor’s expense, all documents that the Pledgor shall reasonably request to evidence such termination or release. Any execution and delivery of documents pursuant to this Section 7 shall be without recourse to or warranty by the Administrative Agent. If at any time all or any part of any payment theretofore applied by the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party to any of the obligations under the Facilities is or must be rescinded or returned by the Administrative Agent or such other Secured Party for any reason whatsoever (including, without limitation, the insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of any Pledgor), such obligations shall, for the purposes of this Agreement, to the extent that such payment is or must be rescinded or returned, be deemed to have continued in existence, notwithstanding such application by the Administrative Agent or such other Secured Party, and this Agreement shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, as to such obligations, all as though such application by the Administrative Agent or such other Secured Party had not been made.

          8.      Address for Notices. All notices hereunder shall be in writing (including facsimile transmission) and shall be sent to the applicable party at its address or facsimile number set forth below its signature hereto or at such other address or facsimile number as such party may, by written notice received by the other parties hereto, have designated as its address for such purpose. Notices sent by facsimile transmission shall be deemed to have been given when sent; notices sent by mail shall be deemed to have been given three Business Days after the date when sent by registered or certified mail, postage prepaid; and notices sent by hand delivery shall have been deemed to have been given when received.

          9.     General. The Administrative Agent shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody and preservation of the Collateral if it takes such action for that purpose as any Pledgor shall request in writing, but failure of the Administrative Agent to comply with any such request shall not of itself be deemed a failure to exercise reasonable care, and no failure of the Administrative Agent to preserve or protect any rights with respect to the Collateral against prior parties, or to do any act with respect to preservation of the Collateral not so requested by any Pledgor, shall be deemed of itself a failure to exercise reasonable care in the custody or preservation of any Collateral.

          Each Pledgor agrees to indemnify, defend and save and hold harmless each Secured Party and each of their Affiliates and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents and advisors (each, an “Indemnified Party”) from and against, and shall pay on demand, any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable fees and expenses of counsel) that may be incurred by or asserted or awarded against any Indemnified Party, in each case arising out of or in connection with or resulting from this Agreement (including, without limitation, enforcement of this Agreement), except to the extent such claim, damage, loss, liability or expense is found in a final, non-appealable judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from such Indemnified Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. Each of the Pledgors agrees to pay all reasonable expenses (including reasonable fees and expenses of counsel) paid or incurred by the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party in endeavoring to collect the obligations of such Pledgor, or any part thereof, and in enforcing this Agreement against such Pledgor, and such obligations will themselves be obligations hereunder.

          No delay on the part of the Administrative Agent in exercising any right, power or remedy shall operate as a waiver thereof, and no single or partial exercise of any such right, power or remedy shall preclude any other or further exercise thereof, or the exercise of any other right, power or remedy. No amendment, modification or waiver of, or consent with respect to, any provision of this Agreement shall be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed and delivered by the Administrative Agent and each Pledgor, and then such amendment, modification, waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given.

          All obligations of the Pledgors and all rights, powers and remedies of the Administrative Agent and the other Secured Parties expressed herein are in addition to all other rights, powers and remedies possessed by them, including, without limitation, those provided by applicable law or in any other written instrument or agreement relating to any of the Liabilities or any security therefor.

          THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK. Wherever possible each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Agreement shall be prohibited by or invalid under applicable law, such provision shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of this Agreement.

          This Agreement shall be binding upon each Pledgor and the Administrative Agent and their respective successors and assigns, and shall inure to the benefit of each Pledgor and the Administrative Agent and the successors and assigns of the Administrative Agent.

          This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by the different parties hereto on separate counterparts, and each such counterpart shall be deemed to be an original, but all such counterparts shall together constitute one and the same Agreement.

Immediately upon such execution and delivery (and without any further action), each such additional person or entity will become a party to, and will be bound by all the terms of, this Agreement.

          ANY LITIGATION BASED HEREON, OR ARISING OUT OF, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT SHALL BE BROUGHT AND MAINTAINED EXCLUSIVELY IN THE COURTS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK OR IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT ANY SUIT SEEKING ENFORCEMENT AGAINST ANY COLLATERAL OR OTHER PROPERTY MAY BE BROUGHT, AT THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT’S OPTION, IN THE COURTS OF ANY JURISDICTION WHERE SUCH COLLATERAL OR OTHER PROPERTY MAY BE FOUND. EACH PLEDGOR HEREBY EXPRESSLY AND IRREVOCABLY SUBMITS TO THE JURISDICTION OF THE COURTS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK AND OF THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK FOR THE PURPOSE OF ANY SUCH LITIGATION AS SET FORTH ABOVE. EACH PLEDGOR HEREBY IRREVOCABLY APPOINTS HOLLINGER INTERNATIONAL INC, 712 FIFTH AVENUE, NEW YORK, NEW YORK, 10019, USA, (THE “PROCESS AGENT”), ATTENTION: MARK KIPNIS, AS ITS AGENT TO RECEIVE, ON ITS BEHALF AND ON BEHALF OF ITS PROPERTY, SERVICE OF COPIES OF THE SUMMONS AND COMPLAINT AND ANY OTHER PROCESS WHICH MAY BE SERVED IN ANY SUCH LITIGATION, SUCH SERVICE MAY BE MADE BY MAILING OR DELIVERING A COPY OF SUCH PROCESS TO EACH PLEDGOR IN CARE OF THE PROCESS AGENT AT THE PROCESS AGENT’S ABOVE ADDRESS, AND EACH PLEDGOR HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AUTHORIZES AND DIRECTS THE PROCESS AGENT TO ACCEPT SUCH SERVICE ON ITS BEHALF. EACH PLEDGOR FURTHER IRREVOCABLY CONSENTS TO THE SERVICE OF PROCESS BY REGISTERED MAIL, POSTAGE PREPAID, TO THE ADDRESS OF THE PERSON SPECIFIED IN, OR PURSUANT TO, THE AMENDED AND RESTATED CREDIT AGREEMENT OR BY PERSONAL SERVICE WITHIN OR WITHOUT THE STATE OF NEW YORK. EACH PLEDGOR HEREBY EXPRESSLY AND IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY OBJECTION WHICH IT MAY NOW OR HEREAFTER HAVE TO THE LAYING OF VENUE OF ANY SUCH LITIGATION BROUGHT IN ANY SUCH COURT REFERRED TO ABOVE AND ANY CLAIM THAT ANY SUCH LITIGATION HAS BEEN BROUGHT IN AN INCONVENIENT FORUM.

EXTENT THAT ANY PLEDGOR HAS OR HEREAFTER MAY ACQUIRE ANY IMMUNITY FROM JURISDICTION OF ANY COURT OR FROM ANY LEGAL PROCESS (WHETHER THROUGH SERVICE OR NOTICE, ATTACHMENT PRIOR TO JUDGMENT, ATTACHMENT IN AID OF EXECUTION OR OTHERWISE) WITH RESPECT TO ITSELF OR ITS PROPERTY, EACH PLEDGOR HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES SUCH IMMUNITY IN RESPECT OF ITS OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS.

          EACH OF THE PLEDGOR, THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT AND, BY ACCEPTING THE BENEFITS HEREOF, EACH LENDER HEREBY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING TO ENFORCE OR DEFEND ANY RIGHTS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT AND ANY AMENDMENT, INSTRUMENT, DOCUMENT OR AGREEMENT DELIVERED OR WHICH MAY IN THE FUTURE BE DELIVERED IN CONNECTION HEREWITH OR THEREWITH OR ARISING FROM ANY BANKING RELATIONSHIP EXISTING IN CONNECTION WITH ANY OF THE FOREGOING, AND AGREES THAT ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING SHALL BE TRIED BEFORE A COURT AND NOT BEFORE A JURY.

          All payments to be made by any Pledgor to any person hereunder shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction for or on account of, tax unless such Pledgor is required by law to make such a payment subject to the deduction or withholding of tax, in which case the sum payable by such Pledgor in respect of which such deduction or withholding is required to be made shall be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that, after the making of such deduction or withholding, such person receives and retains (free from any liability in respect of any such deduction or withholding) a net sum equal to the sum which it would have received and so retained had no such deduction or withholding been made or required to be made.

          The obligations of each Pledgor in respect of any sum due to the Administrative Agent or any other Secured Party hereunder shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency (the “Judgment Currency”) other than the currency in which such sum was originally denominated (the “Original Currency”), be discharged only to the extent that following receipt by the Administrative Agent or such other Secured Party of any sum adjudged to be so due in the Judgment Currency, the Administrative Agent or such other Secured Party, in accordance with normal banking procedures, purchases the Original Currency with the Judgment Currency. If the amount of Original Currency so purchased is less than the sum originally due to the Administrative Agent or such other Secured Party, each Pledgor agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify the Administrative Agent or such other Secured Party, as the case may be, against such loss, and if the amount of Original Currency so purchased exceeds the sum originally due to the Administrative Agent or such other Secured Party, as the case may be, the Administrative Agent or such other Secured Party agrees to remit such excess to such Pledgor.
