(a)       Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, at
     any time and from time to time from the Closing Date through the Banking
     Day immediately prior to the Maturity Date, each Bank shall, pro rata
     according to that Bank's Pro Rata Share of the then applicable Commitment,
     make Advances to Borrower under the Commitment in such amounts as Borrower
     may request that do not result in the sum of (i) the aggregate principal
                                           ------
     amount outstanding under the Notes, plus (ii) the Aggregate Effective
                                         ----
     Amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit plus (iii) the Swing Line
                                                 ----
     Outstandings exceeding the then applicable Commitment. Prior to the
     Completion Date, Borrower may borrow, but may not repay and reborrow under
     the Commitment (provided that this sentence shall not restrict the ability
                     --------
     of Borrower prior to the Completion Date to redesignate an outstanding Loan
     as an Alternate Base Loan or as a Eurodollar Rate Loan with the same or a
     different Interest Period). Subsequent to the Completion Date, subject to
     the limitations set forth herein, Borrower may borrow, repay and reborrow
     under the Commitment without premium or penalty.

(b)       Subject to the next sentence, each Loan shall be made pursuant to a
     Request for Loan which shall specify the requested (i) date of such Loan,
     (ii) type of Loan, (iii) amount of such Loan, and (iv) in the case of a
     Eurodollar Rate Loan, the Interest Period for such Loan. Unless the
     Managing Agent has notified, in its sole and absolute discretion, Borrower
     to the contrary, a Loan may be requested by telephone by a Responsible
     Official of Borrower, in which case Borrower shall confirm such request by
     promptly delivering a Request for Loan in person or by telecopier
     conforming to the preceding sentence to the Managing Agent. Managing Agent
     shall incur no liability whatsoever hereunder in acting upon any telephonic
     request for Loan purportedly made by a Responsible Official of Borrower,
     and Borrower hereby agrees to indemnify the Managing Agent from any loss,
     cost, expense or liability as a result of so acting.

(c)       Promptly following receipt of a Request for Loan, the Managing Agent
     shall notify each Bank by telephone or telecopier (and if by telephone,
     promptly confirmed by telecopier) of the date and type of the Loan, the
     applicable Interest Period, and that Bank's Pro Rata Share of the Loan. Not
     later than 11:00 a.m., California time, on the date specified for any Loan
     (which must be a Banking

                                      -39-
<PAGE>
 
     Day), each Bank shall make its Pro Rata Share of the Loan in immediately
     available funds available to the Managing Agent at the Managing Agent's
     Office. Upon satisfaction or waiver of the applicable conditions set forth
     in Article 9, all Advances shall be credited on that date in immediately
        ---------
     available funds to the Designated Deposit Account.

(d)       Unless the Requisite Banks otherwise consent, each Loan shall be not
     less than $5,000,000.

(e)       The Advances made by each Bank shall be evidenced by that Bank's Note.

(f)       A Request for Loan shall be irrevocable upon the Managing Agent's
     first notification thereof.

(g)       If no Request for Loan (or telephonic request for Loan referred to in
     the second sentence of Section 2.1(b), if applicable) has been made within
                                    ------
     the requisite notice periods set forth in Section 2.2 or 2.3 prior to the
                                                       ---    ---
     end of the Interest Period for any Eurodollar Rate Loan, then on the last
     day of such Interest Period, such Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be
     automatically converted into an Alternate Base Rate Loan in the same
     amount.

(h)       If a Loan is to be made on the same date that another Loan is due and
     payable, Borrower or the Banks, as the case may be, shall make available to
     the Managing Agent the net amount of funds giving effect to both such Loans
     and the effect for purposes of this Agreement shall be the same as if
     separate transfers of funds had been made with respect to each such Loan.

          2.2  Alternate Base Rate Loans.  Each request by Borrower for an
               -------------------------                                  
Alternate Base Rate Loan shall be made pursuant to a Request for Loan (or
telephonic or other request for loan referred to in the second sentence of
Section 2.1(b), if applicable) received by the Managing Agent, at the Managing
        ------                                                                 
Agent's Office, not later than 9:00 a.m. California time, on the date (which
must be a Banking Day) of the requested Alternate Base Rate Loan.  All Loans
shall constitute Alternate Base Rate Loans unless properly designated as a
Eurodollar Rate Loan pursuant to Section 2.3.

     pursuant to a Request for Loan (or telephonic or other request for Loan
     referred to in the second sentence of Section 2.1(b), if applicable)
                                                   ------

     before the first day of the applicable Eurodollar Period.

(b)       On the date which is two (2) Eurodollar Banking Days before the first

     its determination of the applicable Eurodollar Rate (which determination
     shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error) and promptly shall
     give notice of the same to Borrower and the Banks by telephone or
     telecopier (and if by telephone, promptly confirmed by telecopier).

(c)       Unless the Managing Agent and the Requisite Banks otherwise consent,
     no more than twelve (12) Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be outstanding at any
     one time.

(d)       No Eurodollar Rate Loan may be requested during the continuation of a
     Default or Event of Default.

(e)       Nothing contained herein shall require any Bank to fund any Eurodollar
     Rate Advance in the Designated Eurodollar Market.

          2.4  Letters of Credit.
               ----------------- 

(a)       Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, at any time and from time
     to time from the Closing Date through the Banking Day immediately prior to
     the Maturity Date, the Issuing Bank shall issue such Letters of Credit
     under the Commitment as Borrower may request by a Request for Letter of
     Credit; provided that (i) giving effect to all such Letters of Credit, the
             --------

     ---                                                                    ----
     (B) the Aggregate Effective Amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit
     plus (C) the Swing Line Outstandings do not exceed the then applicable
     ----
     Commitment and (ii) the Aggregate Effective Amount under all outstanding

<PAGE>
 
(b)       Each Request for Letter of Credit shall be submitted to the Issuing
     Bank, with a copy to the Managing Agent, at least five (5) Banking Days
     prior to the date upon which the related Letter of Credit is proposed to be
     issued. The Managing Agent shall promptly notify the Issuing Bank whether
     such Request for Letter of Credit, and the issuance of a Letter of Credit
     pursuant thereto, conforms to the requirements of this Agreement. Upon
     issuance of a Letter of Credit, the Issuing Bank shall promptly notify the
     Managing Agent, and the Managing Agent shall promptly notify the Banks, of
     the amount and terms thereof.

(c)       Upon the issuance of a Letter of Credit, each Bank shall be deemed to
     have purchased at par a pro rata participation in such Letter of Credit
     from the Issuing Bank in an amount equal to that Bank's Pro Rata Share.
     Without limiting the scope and nature of each Bank's participation in any
     Letter of Credit, to the extent that the Issuing Bank has not been
     reimbursed by Borrower for any payment required to be made by the Issuing
     Bank under any Letter of Credit, each Bank shall, pro rata according to its
     Pro Rata Share, pay the purchase price for such participation to the
     Issuing Bank through the Managing Agent promptly upon demand therefor. The
     obligation of each Bank to so pay the participation purchase price to the
     Issuing Bank shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected
     by the occurrence of an Event of Default or any other occurrence or event.
     Any such payment of the purchase price shall not relieve or otherwise
     impair the obligation of Borrower to reimburse the Issuing Bank for the
     amount of any payment made by the Issuing Bank under any Letter of Credit
     together with interest as hereinafter provided.

(d)       Borrower agrees to pay to the Issuing Bank through the Managing Agent
     an amount equal to any payment made by the Issuing Bank with respect to
     each Letter of Credit within one (1) Banking Day after written demand made
     by the Issuing Bank therefor, together with interest on such amount from
     the date of any payment made by the Issuing Bank at the rate applicable to
     Alternate Base Rate Loans for three Business Days and thereafter at the
     Default Rate. The principal amount of any such payment shall be used to
     reimburse the Issuing Bank for the payment made by it under the Letter of
     Credit and, to the extent that the Banks have not reimbursed the Issuing
     Bank pursuant to Section 2.4(c), the interest amount of any such
                              ------
     payment shall be for the account of the Issuing Bank. Each Bank that has
     paid the participation purchase price to the Issuing Bank pursuant to
     Section 2.4(c) shall thereupon acquire a pro rata participation, to
             ------
     the extent of such payment, in the claim of the Issuing Bank against
     Borrower for reimbursement of principal and interest under this

                                      -42-
<PAGE>
 
     Section 2.4(d) and shall share, in accordance with that pro rata
             ------
     participation, in any principal payment made by Borrower with respect to
     such claim and in any interest payment made by Borrower (but only with
     respect to periods subsequent to the date such Bank paid the participation
     purchase price to the Issuing Bank) with respect to such claim.

(e)       Borrower may, pursuant to a Request for Loan, request that Advances be
     made pursuant to Section 2.1(a) to provide funds for the payment required
                              ------
     by Section 2.4(d) and, for this purpose, the conditions precedent set forth
                ------
     in Article 9 shall not apply. The proceeds of such Advances shall be paid
        ---------
     directly to the Issuing Bank to reimburse it for the payment made by it
     under the Letter of Credit.

(f)       If Borrower fails to make the payment required by Section 2.4(d)
                                                                    ------
     within the time period therein set forth, in lieu of the payment of the
     participation purchase price to the Issuing Bank under Section 2.4(c) the
                                                                    ------
     Issuing Bank may (but is not required to), without notice to or the consent
     of Borrower, instruct the Managing Agent to cause Advances to be made by
     the Banks under the Commitment in an aggregate amount equal to the amount
     paid by the Issuing Bank with respect to that Letter of Credit and, for
     this purpose, the conditions precedent set forth in Article 9 shall not
                                                         ---------
     apply. The proceeds of such Advances shall be paid directly to the Issuing
     Bank to reimburse it for the payment made by it under the Letter of Credit.

(g)       The issuance of any supplement, modification, amendment, renewal, or
     extension to or of any Letter of Credit shall be treated in all respects
     the same as the issuance of a new Letter of Credit, except that the Issuing
     Bank's issuance fees shall be payable as set forth in the letter agreement
     referred to in Section 3.5.
                            ---

(h)       The obligation of Borrower to pay to the Issuing Bank the amount of
     any payment made by the Issuing Bank under any Letter of Credit shall be
     absolute, unconditional, and irrevocable, subject only to performance by
     the Issuing Bank of its obligations to Borrower under Uniform Commercial
     Code Section 5109. Without limiting the foregoing, Borrower's obligations
     to the Issuing Bank shall not be affected by any of the following
     circumstances:

                                        (i)   any lack of validity or

          other agreement or instrument relating thereto, with the consent of
          Borrower;

          against the Issuing Bank, the Managing Agent or any Bank, any
          beneficiary of the Letter of Credit (or any persons or entities for
          whom any such beneficiary may be acting) or any other Person, whether
          in connection with the Letter of Credit, this Agreement, or any other
          agreement or instrument relating thereto, or any unrelated

          the Issuing Bank;

                                        (xiii) so long as the Issuing Bank in
          good faith determines that the contract or document appears to comply
          with the terms of the Letter of Credit, the form, accuracy,
          genuineness or legal effect of any contract or document referred to in

right, at any time and from time to time, with out penalty or charge, upon at
least three (3) Banking Days' prior written notice by a Responsible Official of
Borrower to the Managing Agent, voluntarily to reduce, permanently and
irrevocably, in aggregate principal amounts in an integral multiple of
$1,000,000 but not less than $5,000,000, or to terminate, all or a portion of
the then undisbursed portion of the Commitment; provided that the Commitment

may not be so

reduced below an amount equal to the sum of (a) the Aggregate Effective Amount
                                     --- --
of all outstanding Letters of Credit plus (b) the Swing Line Outstandings. The
                                     ----
Managing Agent shall promptly notify the Banks of any reduction or termination
of the Commitment under this Section. Any voluntary reduction of the Commitment
under this Section shall be applied to reduce such Reduction Amount as may be
specified by Borrower or, if no such specification is made, to reduce the
Reduction Amount for the most remote Reduction Date (to the extent of such
reduction) and thereafter to earlier Reduction Dates (to the extent not
previously applied) in the reverse order of their occurrence.

          2.6  Contingent Reduction of Commitment.  The Commitment shall be
               ----------------------------------                          
permanently reduced (a) as of the last day of the fourth full Fiscal Quarter
ending after the Completion Date, by an amount equal to Available Cash Flow for
the fiscal period consisting of that Fiscal Quarter and the three immediately
preceding Fiscal Quarters and (b) as of the last day of any subsequent Fiscal
Quarter if the Leverage Ratio is on that date 2.25 to 1.00 or greater, by an
amount equal to fifty percent (50%) of Available Cash Flow for that Fiscal
Quarter. Any reduction of the Commitment under this Section shall be applied to
reduce the Reduction Amount for the most remote Reduction Date (to the extent of
such reduction) and thereafter to earlier Reduction Dates (to the extent not
previously applied) in the reverse order of their occurrence.

          2.7  Automatic Reduction of Commitment.  The Commitment shall be
               ---------------------------------                          
permanently reduced as of the date upon which a Cash Equity Contribution is
required to be made under the Keep-Well Agreement by an amount equal to the
Banks' Percentage of the portion thereof (if any) attributable to the amount
subtracted from the numerator of the Leverage Ratio pursuant to the calculation
set forth in Section 2(a) of the Keep-Well Agreement.  Any reduction of the
                     ----                                                  
Commitment under this Section shall be applied to reduce the Reduction Amount
for the most remote Reduction Date (to the extent of such reduction) and
thereafter to earlier Reduction Dates (to the extent not previously applied) in
the reverse order of their occurrence.

          2.8  Scheduled Reduction of Commitment.  Subject to the last sentences
               ---------------------------------                                
of Sections 2.5, 2.6 and 2.7, on each Reduction Date, the Commitment shall
            ---  ---     ---                                              
automatically be permanently reduced by the applicable Reduction Amount.

          2.9  Optional Termination of Commitment.  Following the occurrence of
               ----------------------------------                              
a Change of Ownership or a Member Change in Control, the Requisite Banks may in
their sole and absolute discretion elect, during the thirty (30) day period
immediately subsequent to the later of (a) such occurrence or (b) the earlier of
                              --------                                -------

Managing Agent of such occurrence or (ii) if no such notice has been received by
the Managing Agent, the date upon which the Managing Agent has actual knowledge
thereof, to terminate the Commitment, in which case the Commitment shall be
terminated effective on the date which is thirty (30) days subsequent to written
notice from the Managing Agent to Borrower thereof.

          2.10  Managing Agent's Right to Assume Funds Available for Advances.
                -------------------------------------------------------------  
Unless the Managing Agent shall have been notified by any Bank no later than
10:00 a.m. on the Banking Day of the proposed funding by the Managing Agent of
any Loan that such Bank does not intend to make available to the Managing Agent
such Bank's portion of the total amount of such Loan, the Managing Agent may
assume that such Bank has made such amount available to the Managing Agent on
the date of the Loan and the Managing Agent may, in reliance upon such
assumption, make available to Borrower a corresponding amount. If the Managing
Agent has made funds available to Borrower based on such assumption and such
corresponding amount is not in fact made available to the Managing Agent by such
Bank, the Managing Agent shall be entitled to recover such corresponding amount
on demand from such Bank. If such Bank does not pay such corresponding amount
forthwith upon the Managing Agent's demand therefor, the Managing Agent promptly
shall notify Borrower and Borrower shall pay such corresponding amount to the
Managing Agent. The Managing Agent also shall be entitled to recover from such
Bank interest on such corresponding amount in respect of each day from the date
such corresponding amount was made available by the Managing Agent to Borrower
to the date such corresponding amount is recovered by the Managing Agent, at a
rate per annum equal to the daily Federal Funds Rate. Nothing herein shall be
deemed to relieve any Bank from its obligation to fulfill its share of the
Commitment or to prejudice any rights which the Managing Agent or Borrower may
have against any Bank as a result of any default by such Bank hereunder.

          2.11  Swing Line.  (a)  The Swing Line Bank shall from time to time
                ----------                                                   
from the Completion Date through the Banking Day immediately prior to the
Maturity Date make Swing Line Loans to Borrower in such amounts as Borrower may
request, provided that (i) after giving effect to such Swing Line Loan, the
         --------                                                          
Swing Line Outstandings do not exceed $10,000,000, (ii) without the consent of
all of the Banks, no Swing Line Loan may be made during the continuation of an
Event of Default and (iii) the Swing Line Bank has not given at least twenty-
four (24) hours prior notice to Borrower that availability under the Swing Line
is suspended or terminated.  Borrower may borrow, repay and reborrow under this
Section.  Unless notified to the contrary by the Swing Line Bank, borrowings
under the Swing Line may be made in amounts which are integral multiples of
$100,000 upon telephonic request by a Responsible Official of Borrower made to
the Managing Agent not later than 1:00 p.m., California 

                                      -47-
<PAGE>
 
time, on the Banking Day of the requested borrowing (which telephonic request
shall be promptly confirmed in writing by telecopier). Promptly after receipt of
such a request for borrowing, the Managing Agent shall provide telephonic
verification to the Swing Line Bank that, after giving effect to such request,
availability for Loans will exist under Section 2.1(a) (and such verification
                                                ------
shall be promptly confirmed in writing by telecopier). Unless notified to the
contrary by the Swing Line Bank, each repayment of a Swing Line Loan shall be in
an amount which is an integral multiple of $100,000. If Borrower instructs the
Swing Line Bank to debit its demand deposit account at the Swing Line Bank in
the amount of any payment with respect to a Swing Line Loan, or the Swing Line
Bank otherwise receives repayment, after 3:00 p.m., California time, on a
Banking Day, such payment shall be deemed received on the next Banking Day. The
Swing Line Bank shall promptly notify the Managing Agent of the Swing Loan
Outstandings each time there is a change therein and promptly notify the
Managing Agent and the Banks if it suspends or terminates availability under the
Swing Line.

          (a)  Swing Line Loans shall bear interest at a fluctuating rate per
annum equal to the Alternate Base Rate plus (if applicable) an interest rate
                                       ----                                 
equal to the excess of the Applicable Alternate Base Rate Margin over the
Applicable Commitment Fee Rate or minus (if applicable) an interest rate equal
                                  -----                                       
to the excess of the Applicable Commitment Fee Rate over the Applicable
Alternate Base Rate Margin.  Interest shall be payable on such dates, not more
frequent than monthly, as may be specified by the Swing Line Bank and in any
event on the Maturity Date.  The Swing Line Bank shall be responsible for
invoicing Borrower for such interest.  The interest payable on Swing Line Loans
is solely for the account of the Swing Line Bank (subject to clause (d) below).

          (b)  The Swing Line Loans shall be payable within five (5) Banking
Days after demand made by the Swing Line Bank and in any event on the Maturity
Date.

          (c)  Upon the making of a Swing Line Loan in accordance with Section
                                                                             
2.11(a), each Bank shall be deemed to have purchased from the Swing Line Bank a
-------                                                                        
participation therein in an amount equal to that Bank's Pro Rata Share of the
Commitment times the amount of the Swing Line Loan.  Upon demand made by the
           -----                                                            
Swing Line Bank, each Bank shall, according to its Pro Rata Share of the
Commitment, promptly provide to the Swing Line Bank its purchase price therefor
in an amount equal to its participation therein.  The obligation of each Bank to
so provide its purchase price to the Swing Line Bank shall be absolute and
unconditional (except only demand made by the Swing Line Bank) and shall not be
affected by the occurrence of a Default or Event of Default; provided that no
                                                             --------        
Bank shall be obligated to purchase its Pro Rata Share of 

                                      -48-
<PAGE>
 
(i)  Swing Line Loans to the extent that Swing Line Outstandings are in excess
of $10,000,000 or to the extent that the sum of the Indebtedness evidenced by
                                         ---
the Notes plus the Aggregate Effective Amount of all outstanding Letters
of Credit plus the Swing Line Outstandings exceeds the Commitment and (ii)
          ----
any Swing Line Loan made (absent the consent of all of the Banks) during the
continuation of an Event of Default. Each Bank that has provided to the Swing
Line Bank the purchase price due for its participation in Swing Line Loans shall
thereupon acquire a pro rata participation, to the extent of such payment, in
the claim of the Swing Line Bank against Borrower for principal and interest and
shall share, in accordance with that pro rata participation, in any principal
payment made by Borrower with respect to such claim and in any interest payment
made by Borrower (but only with respect to periods subsequent to the date such
Bank paid the Swing Line Bank its purchase price) with respect to such claim.

          (d)  In the event that the Swing Line Outstandings are outstanding ten
(10) consecutive Banking Days, then on the next Banking Day (unless Borrower has
made other arrangements acceptable to the Swing Line Bank to pay the Swing Line
Outstandings in full), Borrower shall request a Loan pursuant to Section 2.1(a)
                                                                         ------
sufficient to pay the Swing Line Outstandings in full.  In addition, upon any
demand for payment of the Swing Line Outstandings by the Swing Line Bank (unless
Borrower has made other arrangements acceptable to the Swing Line Bank to reduce
the Swing Line Outstandings to $0), Borrower shall request a Loan pursuant to
Section 2.1(a) sufficient to repay all Swing Line Outstandings (and, for this
        ------                                                               
purpose, Section 2.1(d) shall not apply).   In each case, the Managing Agent
                 ------                                                     
shall automatically provide the responsive Advances made by each Bank to the
Swing Line Bank (which the Swing Line Bank shall then apply to the Swing Line
Outstandings).  In the event that Borrower fails to request a Loan within the
time specified by Section 2.2 on any such date, the Managing Agent may, but is
                          ---                                                 
not required to, without notice to or the consent of Borrower, cause Advances to
be made by the Banks under the Commitment in amounts which are sufficient to
reduce the Swing Line Outstandings as required above.  The conditions precedent
set forth in Article 9 shall not apply to Advances to be made by the Banks
             ---------                                                    
pursuant to the three preceding sentences but the Banks shall not be obligated
to make such Advances to the extent that the conditions set forth in Section
                                                                            
2.11(a)(i), (ii) and (iii) were not satisfied as to any Swing Line Loan which is

part of such Swing Line Outstandings.  The proceeds of such Advances shall be
paid directly to the Swing Line Bank for application to the Swing Line
Outstandings.

          3.7  Increased Commitment Costs.  If any Bank shall determine in good
               --------------------------                                      
faith that the introduction after the Closing Date of any applicable law, rule,
regulation or guideline regarding capital adequacy, or any change therein or any
change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any central bank or
other Governmental Agency charged with the interpretation or administration
thereof, or compliance by such Bank (or its Eurodollar Lending Office) or any
corporation controlling the Bank, with any request, guideline or directive
regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of Law) of any such
central bank or other authority, affects or would affect the amount of capital
required or expected to be main tained by such Bank or any corporation
controlling such Bank and (taking into consideration such Bank's or such 
corporation's policies with respect to capital adequacy and such Bank's desired 
return on capital) determines in good faith that the amount of such capital is
increased, or the rate of return on capital is reduced, as a consequence of its
obligations under this Agreement, then, within ten (10) Banking Days after
demand of such Bank, Borrower shall pay to such Bank, from time to time as
specified in good faith by such Bank, additional amounts sufficient to
compensate such Bank in light of such circumstances, to the extent reasonably
allocable to such obligations under this Agreement, provided that Borrower shall
                                                    --------
not be obligated to pay any such amount which arose prior to the date which is
ninety (90) days preceding the date of such demand or is attributable to periods
prior to the date which is ninety (90) days preceding the date of such demand.
Any request for compensation by a Bank under this Section shall set forth the
basis upon which it has been determined that such an amount is due from
Borrower, a calculation of the amount due, and a certification that the
corresponding costs or diminished rate of return on capital have been incurred
or sustained by the Bank.  If Borrower becomes obligated to pay a material
amount under this Section to any Bank, that Bank will be subject to removal in
accordance with Section 12.27; provided that Borrower shall have paid such
                        -----  --------                                   
amount to that Bank and that Borrower, within the thirty (30) day period
following the date of such payment, shall have notified that Bank in writing of
its intent to so remove the Bank.  Each Bank's determination of such amounts
shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.

          3.8  Eurodollar Costs and Related Matters.
               ------------------------------------ 

(a)       In the event that any Governmental Agency imposes on any Bank any
     reserve or comparable requirement (including any emergency, supplemental or
                                        ---------
     other reserve) with respect to the Eurodollar Obligations of that Bank,
     Borrower shall pay that Bank within five (5) Banking Days after demand all
     amounts necessary to compensate such Bank (determined as though such Bank's
     Eurodollar Lending Office had funded 100% of its Eurodollar Rate Advance in
     the Designated Eurodollar Market) in respect of the imposition of such
     reserve requirements. The Bank's determination of such amount shall be
     conclusive in the absence of manifest error.

(b)       If, after the date hereof, the existence or occurrence of any Special
     Eurodollar Circumstance:

     (1)       shall subject any Bank or its Eurodollar Lending Office to any
          tax, duty or other charge or cost with respect to any Eurodollar Rate
          Advance, any of its Notes evidencing Eurodollar Rate Loans or its
          obligation to make Eurodollar Rate Advances, or shall change the basis
          of taxation of payments to any Bank attributable to the principal of
          or interest on any Eurodollar Rate Advance or any other amounts due
          under this Agreement in respect of any Eurodollar Rate Advance, any of
          its Notes evidencing Eurodollar Rate Loans or its obligation to make
          Eurodollar Rate Advances, excluding (i) taxes imposed on or measured
                                    ---------
          in whole or in part by its overall net income by (A) any jurisdiction
          (or political subdivision thereof) in which it is organized or
          maintains its principal office or Eurodollar Lending Office or (B) any
          jurisdiction (or political subdivision thereof) in which it is "doing
          business," and (ii) any withholding taxes or other taxes based on
          gross income imposed by the United States of America for any period
          with respect to which it has failed to provide Borrower with the
          appropriate form or forms required by Section 12.21, to the extent
                                                        -----
          such forms are then available under applicable Laws;

     (2)       shall impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve not
          applicable or deemed applicable on the date hereof (including any
                                                              ---------
          reserve imposed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve
          System, special deposit, capital or similar requirements against
          assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by,
          any Bank or its Eurodollar Lending Office); or

     (3)       shall impose on any Bank or its Eurodollar Lending Office or the
          Designated Eurodollar Market any other condition affecting any
          Eurodollar Rate Advance, any of its Notes evidencing Eurodollar Rate
          Loans, its obligation to make Eurodollar Rate Advances or this
          Agreement, or shall otherwise affect any of the same;

     and the result of any of the foregoing, as determined in good faith by such
     Bank, increases the cost to such Bank or its Eurodollar Lending Office of
     making or maintaining any Eurodollar Rate Advance or in respect of any
     Eurodollar Rate Advance, any of its Notes evidencing Eurodollar Rate Loans
     or its obligation to make Eurodollar Rate Advances or reduces the amount of
     any sum received or receivable by such Bank or its Eurodollar Lending
     Office with respect to any Eurodollar Rate Advance, any of its Notes
     evidencing Eurodollar Rate Loans or its obligation to make Eurodollar Rate
     Advances (assuming such Bank's Eurodollar Lending Office had funded 100% of
     its Eurodollar Rate Advance in the Designated Eurodollar Market), then,
     within five (5) Banking Days after demand by such Bank (with a copy to the
     Managing Agent), Borrower shall pay to such Bank such additional amount or
     amounts as will compensate such Bank for such increased cost or reduction
     (determined as though such Bank's Eurodollar Lending Office had funded 100%
     of its Eurodollar Rate Advance in the Designated Eurodollar Market). A
     statement of any Bank claiming compensation under this subsection and
     setting forth in reasonable detail the additional amount or amounts to be
     paid to it hereunder shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.

(c)       If, after the date hereof, the existence or occurrence of any Special
     Eurodollar Circumstance shall, in the good faith opinion of any Bank, make
     it unlawful or impossible for such Bank or its Eurodollar Lending Office to
     make, maintain or fund its portion of any Eurodollar Rate Loan, or
     materially restrict the authority of such Bank to purchase or sell, or to
     take deposits of, Dollars in the Designated Eurodollar Market, or to
     determine or charge interest rates based upon the Eurodollar Rate, and such
     Bank shall so notify the Managing Agent, then such Bank's obligation to
     make Eurodollar Rate Advances shall be suspended for the duration of such
     illegality or impossibility and the Managing Agent forthwith shall give
     notice thereof to the other Banks and Borrower. Upon receipt of such
     notice, the outstanding principal amount of such Bank's Eurodollar Rate
     Advances, together with accrued interest thereon, automatically shall be
     converted to Alternate Base Rate Advances on either (1) the last day of the
     Eurodollar Period(s) applicable to such Eurodollar Rate Advances if such
     Bank may lawfully continue to

                                      -56-
<PAGE>
 
     maintain and fund such Eurodollar Rate Advances to such day(s) or (2)
     immediately if such Bank may not lawfully continue to fund and maintain
     such Eurodollar Rate Advances to such day(s), provided that in such event
                                                   --------
     the conversion shall not be to payment of a prepayment fee under clause (e)
     of this Section. Each Bank agrees to endeavor promptly to notify Borrower
     of any event of which it has actual knowledge, occurring after the Closing
     Date, which will cause that Bank to notify the Managing Agent under this
     Section, and agrees to designate a different Eurodollar Lending Office if
     such designation will avoid the need for such notice and will not, in the
     good faith judgment of such Bank, otherwise be materially disadvantageous
     to such Bank. In the event that any Bank is unable, for the reasons set
     forth above, to make, maintain or fund its portion of any Eurodollar Rate
     Loan, such Bank shall fund such amount as an Alternate Base Rate Advance
     for the same period of time, and such amount shall be treated in all
     respects as an Alternate Base Rate Advance. Any Bank whose obligation to
     make Eurodollar Rate Advances has been suspended under this Section shall
     promptly notify the Managing Agent and Borrower of the cessation of the
     Special Eurodollar Circumstance which gave rise to such suspension.

(d)       If, with respect to any proposed Eurodollar Rate Loan:

     (1)       the Managing Agent reasonably determines that, by reason of
          circumstances affecting the Designated Eurodollar Market generally
          that are beyond the reasonable control of the Banks, deposits in
          Dollars (in the applicable amounts) are not being offered to any Bank
          in the Designated Eurodollar Market for the applicable Eurodollar
          Period; or

     (2)       the Requisite Banks advise the Managing Agent that the Eurodollar
          Rate as determined by the Managing Agent (i) does not represent the
          effective pricing to such Banks for deposits in Dollars in the
          Designated Eurodollar Market in the relevant amount for the applicable
          Eurodollar Period, or (ii) will not adequately and fairly reflect the
          cost to such Banks of making the applicable Eurodollar Rate Advances;

     then the Managing Agent forthwith shall give notice thereof to Borrower and
     the Banks, whereupon until the Managing Agent notifies Borrower that the
     circumstances giving rise to such suspension no longer exist, the
     obligation of the Banks to make any future Eurodollar Rate Advances shall
     be suspended unless (but only if clause (2) above is the basis for such
                  ------                     ---                            
     suspension) Borrower notifies 

                                      -57-
<PAGE>
 
     the Managing Agent in writing that it elects to pay the Enhanced Applicable
     Eurodollar Rate Margin with respect to all Eurodollar Rate Loans made
     during such period. The Enhanced Applicable Eurodollar Rate Margin shall be
     the sum of (i) the Applicable Eurodollar Rate Margin plus (ii) such
     interest rate margin as the Requisite Banks specify is necessary to adjust
     the Eurodollar Rate to a rate which represents the effective pricing to
     such Banks for deposits of Dollars in the Designated Eurodollar Market in
     the relevant amount for the applicable Eurodollar Period and which
     adequately and fairly reflects the cost to such Banks of making the
     applicable Eurodollar Rate Advances.

(e)       Upon payment or prepayment of any Eurodollar Rate Advance (other than
                                                                     ----- ----
     as the result of a conversion required under clause (c) of this Section) on
     a day other than the last day in the applicable Eurodollar Period (whether
     voluntarily, involuntarily, by reason of acceleration, or otherwise), or
     upon the failure of Borrower (for a reason other than the failure of a Bank
     to make an Advance) to borrow on the date or in the amount specified for a
     Eurodollar Rate Loan in any Request for Loan, or upon the failure of
     Borrower to prepay a Eurodollar Rate Loan on the date specified in a notice
     of prepayment delivered to the Managing Agent pursuant to Section 3.1(e),
                                                                       ------
     Borrower shall pay to the appropriate Bank within ten (10) Banking Days
     after demand a prepayment fee, failure to borrow fee or failure to prepay
     fee, as the case may be (determined as though 100% of the Eurodollar Rate
     Advance had been funded in the Designated Eurodollar Market), equal to the
     sum of:
     --- --

     (1)       the principal amount of the Eurodollar Rate Advance prepaid
          or not borrowed or prepaid, as the case may be, times [the number of
                                                          -----               
          days from and including the date of prepayment or failure to borrow or
          prepay, as applicable, to but excluding the last day in the applicable
          Eurodollar Period], divided by 360, times the applicable Interest
                              ----------      -----                        
          Differential (provided that the product of the foregoing formula must
                        --------                                               
          be a positive number); plus
                                 ----

     (2)       all out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Bank reasonably
          attributable to such payment, prepayment or failure to borrow.

     Each Bank's determination of the amount of any prepayment fee, failure to
     borrow fee or failure to prepay fee payable under this Section shall be
     conclusive in the absence of manifest error.

                                      -58-

(f)       Each Bank agrees to endeavor promptly to notify Borrower of any event
     of which it has actual knowledge, occurring after the Closing Date, which
     will entitle such Bank to compensation pursuant to clause (a) or clause (b)
                                                                -             -
     of this Section, and agrees to designate a different Eurodollar Lending
     Office if such designation will avoid the need for or reduce the amount of
     such compensation and will not, in the good faith judgment of such Bank,
     otherwise be materially disadvantageous to such Bank. Any request for
     compensation by a Bank under this Section shall set forth the basis upon
     which it has been determined that such an amount is due from Borrower, a
     calculation of the amount due, and a certification that the corresponding
     costs have been incurred by the Bank.

(g)       If any Bank claims compensation or is excused from making or
     continuing Eurodollar Rate Loans under this Section:

                                   (i)   Borrower may at any time, upon at least
          four (4) Eurodollar Banking Days' prior notice to the Managing Agent
          and such Bank and upon payment in full of the amounts provided for in
          this Section through the date of such payment plus any prepayment fee
          (subject to clause (c) of this Section) required by clause (e) of this
                              -                                       -
          Section, pay in full the affected Eurodollar Rate Advances of such
          Bank or request that such Eurodollar Rate Advances be converted to
          Alternate Base Rate Advances; and

                                   (ii)  In the case where Borrower becomes
          obligated to pay a material amount under this Section 3.8 to any Bank,
                                                                ---
          that Bank will be subject to removal in accordance with Section
          12.27; provided that Borrower shall have paid such amount
          -----  --------
          to that Bank and that Borrower, within the thirty (30) day period
          following the date of such payment, shall have notified that Bank in
          writing of its intent to so remove the Bank.

          3.9  Late Payments.  If any installment of principal or interest or
               -------------                                                 
any fee or cost or other amount payable under any Loan Document to the Managing
Agent or any Bank is not paid when due, it shall thereafter bear interest at a
fluctuating interest rate per annum at all times equal to the sum of the
                                                              ------    
Alternate Base Rate plus the Applicable Alternate Base Rate Margin plus 2%, to

the fullest extent permitted by applicable Laws.  Accrued and unpaid interest on
past due amounts (including interest on past due interest) shall be compounded

                --------------------------------                             
Alternate Base Rate Loans and all fees under this Agreement shall be calculated
on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, and the actual
number of days elapsed; computation of interest on Eurodollar Rate Loans shall

elapsed. Borrower acknowledge that such latter calculation method will result in
a higher yield to the Banks than a method based on a year of 365 or 366 days.
Interest shall accrue on each Loan for the day on which the Loan is made;
interest shall not accrue on a Loan, or any portion thereof, for the day on
which the Loan or such portion is paid. Any Loan that is repaid on the same day
on which it is made shall bear interest for one day. Notwithstanding anything in
this Agreement to the contrary, interest in excess of the maximum amount
permitted by applicable Laws shall not accrue or be payable hereunder or under
the Notes, and any amount paid as interest hereunder or under the Notes which
would otherwise be in excess of such maximum permitted amount shall instead be
treated as a payment of principal.

other Party under any Loan Document shall come due on a day other than a Banking
Day, payment shall instead be considered due on the next succeeding Banking Day
and the extension of time shall be reflected in computing interest and fees.

          3.12  Manner and Treatment of Payments.
                -------------------------------- 

(a)       Each payment hereunder (except payments pursuant to Sections
                                  ------

     ----  ---  ---  ----  -----     -----                                    
     Loan Document shall be made to the Managing Agent, at the Managing Agent's
     Office, for the account of each of the Banks or the Managing Agent, as the
     case may be, in immediately available funds not later than 11:00 a.m.

      -----                                                              
     received by 3:00 p.m.), California time, on the day of payment (which must
     be a Banking Day).  All payments received after such time, on any Banking
     Day, shall be deemed received on the next succeeding Banking Day.  The
     amount of all payments received by the Managing Agent for the account of
     each Bank shall be immediately paid by the Managing Agent to the applicable
     Bank in immediately available funds and, if such payment was received by
     the Managing Agent by 11:00 a.m., California time, on a Banking Day and not
     so made available to the account of a Bank on that Banking Day, the
     Managing Agent shall reimburse that Bank for the cost to such Bank of
     funding the amount of such payment at the Federal Funds Rate.  All payments
     shall be made in lawful money of the United States of America.

(b)       Each payment or prepayment on account of any Loan shall be applied pro
     rata according to the outstanding Advances made by each Bank comprising
     such Loan.

(c)       Each Bank shall use its best efforts to keep a record (which may be in
     tangible or electronic or other intangible form) of Advances made by it and
     payments received by it with respect to each of its Notes and, subject to
     Section 11.6(g), such record shall, as against Borrower, be presumptive
             -------
     evidence of the amounts owing. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, the
     failure by any Bank to keep such a record shall not affect Borrower's
     obligation to pay the Obligations.

(d)       Each payment of any amount payable by Borrower or any other Party
     under this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be made free and
     clear of, and without reduction by reason of, any taxes, assessments or
     other charges imposed by any Governmental Agency, central bank or
     comparable authority, excluding (i) taxes imposed on or measured in whole
                           ---------
     or in part by overall net income, gross income or gross receipts and
     franchise taxes imposed on any Bank by (A) any jurisdiction (or political
     subdivision thereof) in which it is organized or maintains its principal
     office or Eurodollar Lending Office or (B) any jurisdiction (or political
     subdivision thereof) in which it is "doing business", (ii) any withholding
     taxes or other taxes based on gross income imposed by the United States of
     America that are not attributable to any change in any Law or the
     interpretation or administration of any Law by any Governmental Agency and
     (iii) any withholding tax or other taxes based on gross income imposed by
     the United States of America for any period with respect to which it has
     failed to provide Borrower with the appropriate form or forms required by
     Section 12.21, to the extent such forms are then available under applicable
             -----
     Laws (all such non-excluded taxes, assessments or other charges being
     hereinafter referred to as "Taxes"). To the extent that Borrower is
     obligated by applicable Laws to make any deduction or withholding on
     account of Taxes from any amount payable to any Bank under this Agreement,
     Borrower shall (i) make such deduction or withholding and pay the same to
     the relevant Governmental Agency and (ii) pay such additional amount to
     that Bank as is necessary to result in that Bank's receiving a net
     after-Tax amount equal to the amount to which that Bank would have been
     entitled under this Agreement absent such deduction or withholding. If and
     when receipt of such payment results in an excess payment or credit to that
     Bank on account of such Taxes, that Bank shall promptly refund such excess
     to Borrower. If Borrower becomes obligated to pay a material amount under
     this Section to any Bank, that Bank will be subject to removal in

     amount to that Bank and that Borrower, within the thirty (30) day period
     following the date of such payment, shall have notified that Bank in
     writing of its intent to so remove the Bank.

          3.13  Funding Sources.  Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to
                ---------------                                               
obligate any Bank to obtain the funds for any Loan or Advance in any particular
place or manner or to constitute a representation by any Bank that it has
obtained or will obtain the funds for any Loan or Advance in any particular
place or manner.

          3.14  Failure to Charge Not Subsequent Waiver.  Any decision by the
                ---------------------------------------                      
Managing Agent or any Bank not to require payment of any interest (including

interest at the Default Rate), fee, cost or other amount payable under any Loan
Document, or to calculate any amount payable by a particular method, on any

to calculate an amount payable by another method that is not inconsistent with

to the date on which any payment to be made by Borrower hereunder is due that
Borrower does not intend to remit such payment, the Managing Agent may, in its
discretion, assume that Borrower has remitted such payment when so due and the
Managing Agent may, in its discretion and in reliance upon such assumption, make
available to each Bank on such payment date an amount equal to such Bank's share
of such assumed payment.  If Borrower has not in fact remitted such payment to
the Managing Agent, each Bank shall forthwith on demand repay to the Managing
Agent the amount of such assumed payment made available to such Bank, together
with interest thereon in respect of each day from and including the date such
amount was made available by the Managing Agent to such Bank to the date such
amount is repaid to the Managing Agent at the Federal Funds Rate.

authority to conduct its business, to own and lease its Properties and to

Obligations.  All outstanding interests in the equity capital of Borrower are

thereof has any enforceable right of rescission under any applicable state or
federal securities Laws.  Borrower is in compliance with all Requirements of

the Completion Date and will not apply for such licenses until shortly prior to
the Completion Date.

(e)       The order and manner in which the Banks' rights and remedies are to be
     exercised shall be determined by the Requisite Banks in their sole
     discretion, and all payments received by the Managing Agent and the Banks,
     or any of them, shall be applied first to the costs and expenses (including
     reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements and the reasonably allocated
     costs of attorneys employed by the Managing Agent or by any Bank) of the
     Managing Agent and of the Banks, and thereafter paid pro rata to the Banks
     in the same proportions that the aggregate Obligations owed to each Bank
     under the Loan Documents bear to the aggregate Obligations owed under the
     Loan Documents to all the Banks, without priority or preference among the
     Banks. Regardless of how each Bank may treat payments for the purpose of
     its own accounting, for the

     purpose of computing Borrower' Obligations here under and under the Notes,
     payments shall be applied first, to the costs and expenses of the Managing
                               -----
     Agent and the Banks, as set forth above, second, to the payment of accrued
                                              ------
     and unpaid interest due under any Loan Documents to and including the date
     of such application (ratably, and without duplication, according to the
     accrued and unpaid interest due under each of the Loan Documents), and
     third, to the payment of all other amounts (including principal and fees)
     -----
     then owing to the Managing Agent or the Banks under the Loan Documents.
     Amounts due to a Bank under a Secured Swap Agreement shall be considered a
     principal amount for purposes of the preceding sentence. No application of
     payments will cure any Event of Default, or prevent acceleration, or
     continued acceleration, of amounts payable under the Loan Documents, or
     prevent the exercise, or continued exercise, of rights or remedies of the
     Banks hereunder or thereunder or at Law or in equity.

                               THE MANAGING AGENT
                               ------------------


          11.1  Appointment and Authorization.  Subject to Section 11.8, each
                -----------------------------                      ----      
Bank hereby irrevocably appoints and authorizes the Managing Agent to take such
action as agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers under the Loan
Documents as are delegated to the Managing Agent by the terms thereof or are
reasonably incidental, as determined by the Managing Agent, thereto.  This
appointment and authorization is intended solely for the purpose of facilitating
the servicing of the Loans and does not constitute appointment of the Managing
Agent as trustee for any Bank or as representative of any Bank for any other
purpose and, except as specifically set forth in the Loan Documents to the
             ------

                -----------------------------                                 
and Savings Association (and each successor Managing Agent) has the same rights
and powers under the Loan Documents as any other Bank and may exercise the same
as though it were not the Managing Agent, and the term "Bank" or "Banks"
includes Bank of America National Trust and Savings Association in its
individual capacity.  Bank of America National Trust and Savings Association
(and each successor Managing Agent) and its Affiliates may accept deposits from,
lend money to and generally engage in any kind of banking, trust or other
business with Borrower, any Subsidiary thereof, or any Affiliate of Borrower or
any Subsidiary thereof, as if it were not the Managing Agent and without any
duty to account therefor to the Banks.  Bank of America National Trust and
Savings Association (and each successor Managing Agent) need not account to any
other Bank for any monies received by it for reimbursement of its costs and
expenses as Managing Agent hereunder, or for any monies received by it in its
capacity as a Bank hereunder.  The Managing Agent shall not be deemed to hold a
fiduciary relationship with any Bank and no implied covenants, functions,
responsibilities, duties, obligations or liabilities shall be read into this
Agreement or otherwise exist against the Managing Agent.

          11.3  Proportionate Interest in any Collateral.  The Managing Agent,
                ----------------------------------------                      
on behalf of all the Banks, shall hold in accordance with the Loan Documents all
items of any collateral or interests therein received or held by the Managing
Agent.  Subject to the Managing Agent's and the Banks' rights to reimbursement
for their costs and expenses hereunder (including reasonable attorneys' fees and
                                        ---------                               
disbursements and other professional services and the reasonably allocated costs
of attorneys employed by the Managing Agent or a Bank) and subject to the
application of payments in accordance with Section

                                     -102-

10.2(d), each Bank shall have an interest in the Banks' interest in the
-------                                                                
Collateral or interests therein in the same proportions that the aggregate
Obligations owed such Bank under the Loan Documents bear to the aggregate
Obligations owed under the Loan Documents to all the Banks, without priority or
preference among the Banks, except that Obligations owed to any Bank under a
                            ------                                          
Secured Swap Agreement shall be secured on a pari passu basis with all other

Obligations up to an amount equal to the Managing Agent's then customary credit
risk factor for Swap Agreements times the notional amount of Indebtedness
covered by such Secured Swap Agreement and shall be secured on a subordinate
basis as to amounts in excess of such amount.

          11.4  Banks' Credit Decisions.  Each Bank agrees that it has,
                -----------------------                                
independently and without reliance upon the Managing Agent, any other Bank or
the directors, officers, agents, employees or attorneys of the Managing Agent or
of any other Bank, and instead in reliance upon information supplied to it by or
on behalf of Borrower and upon such other information as it has deemed
appropriate, made its own independent credit analysis and decision to enter into
this Agreement.  Each Bank also agrees that it shall, independently and without
reliance upon the Managing Agent, any other Bank or the directors, officers,
agents, employees or attorneys of the Managing Agent or of any other Bank,
continue to make its own independent credit analyses and decisions in acting or
not acting under the Loan Documents.

          11.5  Action by Managing Agent.
                ------------------------ 

(a)       Absent actual knowledge of the Managing Agent of the existence of a
     Default, the Managing Agent may assume that no Default has occurred and is
     continuing, unless the Managing Agent (or the Bank that is then the
     Managing Agent) has received notice from Borrower stating the nature of the
     Default or has received notice from a Bank stating the nature of the
     Default and that such Bank considers the Default to have occurred and to be
     continuing.

(b)       The Managing Agent has only those obligations under the Loan Documents
     as are expressly set forth therein.

(c)       Except for any obligation expressly set forth in the Loan Documents
          ------
     and as long as the Managing Agent may assume that no Event of Default has
     occurred and is continuing, the Managing Agent may, but shall not be
     required to, exercise its discretion to act or not act, except that
                                                             ------     
     the Managing Agent shall be required to act or not act upon the
     instructions of the Requisite Banks (or of all the Banks, to the extent
     required by Section 12.2) and those instructions shall be binding upon the
                         ----                                                  
     Managing Agent and all the Banks, provided that the Managing Agent

                                     -103-
<PAGE>
 
     shall not be required to act or not act if to do so would be contrary to
     any Loan Document or to applicable Law or would result, in the reasonable
     judgment of the Managing Agent, in substantial risk of liability to the
     Managing Agent.

(d)       If the Managing Agent has received a notice specified in clause
     (a), the Managing Agent shall immediately give notice thereof to the Banks
      -                                                                         
     and shall act or not act upon the instructions of the Requisite Banks (or
     of all the Banks, to the extent required by Section 12.2), provided that
                                                         ----   --------     
     the Managing Agent shall not be required to act or not act if to do so
     would be contrary to any Loan Document or to applicable Law or would
     result, in the reasonable judgment of the Managing Agent, in substantial
     risk of liability to the Managing Agent, and except that if the Requisite
                                                  ------                      
     Banks (or all the Banks, if required under Section 12.2) fail, for five (5)
                                                        ----                    
     Banking Days after the receipt of notice from the Managing Agent, to
     instruct the Managing Agent, then the Managing Agent, in its sole
     discretion, may act or not act as it deems advisable for the protection of
     the interests of the Banks.

(e)       The Managing Agent shall have no liability to any Bank for acting, or
     not acting, as instructed by the Requisite Banks (or all the Banks, if
     required under Section 12.2), notwithstanding any other provision hereof.

of its directors, officers, agents or employees shall be liable for any action
taken or not taken by them under or in connection with the Loan Documents,
except for their own gross negligence or willful misconduct.  Without limitation

on the foregoing, the Managing Agent and its directors, officers, agents and
employees:

(a)       May treat the payee of any Note as the holder thereof until the
     Managing Agent receives notice of the assignment or transfer thereof, in
     form satisfactory to the Managing Agent, signed by the payee, and may treat
     each Bank as the owner of that Bank's interest in the Obligations for all
     purposes of this Agreement until the Managing Agent receives notice of the
     assignment or transfer thereof, in form satisfactory to the Managing Agent,
     signed by that Bank;

(b)       May consult with legal counsel (including in-house legal

     or other professionals or experts for Borrower and/or their Subsidiaries or
     the Banks, and shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it
     in good faith in accordance with any

(g)       Will not incur any liability for any arithmetical error in computing

     any Loan Document, including, principal, interest, commitment fees,
                        ---------
     Advances and other amounts; provided that, promptly upon discovery of such
                                 --------
     an error in computation, the Managing Agent, the Banks and (to the extent
     applicable) Borrower and/or its Subsidiaries or Affiliates shall make such
     adjustments as are necessary to correct such error and to restore the
     parties to the position that they would have occupied had the error not
     occurred.

                ---------------

accordance with its proportion of the aggregate Indebtedness then evidenced by
the Notes (if the Commitment has then been terminated), indemnify and hold the

                      ---------
disbursements and allocated costs of attorneys employed by the Managing Agent)
that may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against it or them in such
capacity in any way relating to or arising out of the Loan Documents (other than
losses incurred by reason of the failure of Borrower to pay the Indebtedness
represented by the Notes) or any action taken or not taken by it as Managing
Agent thereunder, except such as result from its own gross negligence or willful
                  ------
misconduct. Without limitation on the foregoing, each Bank shall reimburse the
Managing Agent upon demand for that Bank's Pro Rata Share of any out-of-pocket
cost or expense incurred by the Managing Agent in connection with the

entitle the Managing Agent to recover any amount from the Banks if and to the
extent that such amount has theretofore been recovered from Borrower or any
other Party. To the extent that the Managing Agent is later reimbursed such cost
or expense by Borrower or any other Party, it shall return the amounts paid to
it by the Banks in respect of such cost or expense.

          11.8  Successor Managing Agent.  The Managing Agent may, and at the
                ------------------------                                     
request of the Requisite Banks shall, resign as Managing Agent upon thirty (30)
days' notice to the Banks and Borrower.  If the Managing Agent shall resign as
Managing Agent under this Agreement, the Requisite Banks shall appoint from
among the Banks a successor Managing Agent for the Banks, which successor
Managing Agent shall be approved by Borrower (and such approval shall not be
unreasonably withheld or delayed).  If no successor Managing Agent is appointed
prior to the effective date of the resignation of the Managing Agent, the
Managing Agent may appoint, after consulting with the Banks and the Borrower, a
successor Managing Agent from among the Banks.  Upon the acceptance of its
appointment as successor Managing Agent hereunder, such successor Managing Agent
shall succeed to all the rights, powers and duties of the retiring Managing
Agent and the term "Managing Agent" shall mean such successor Managing Agent and
the retiring Managing Agent's appointment, powers and duties as Managing Agent
shall be terminated.  After any retiring Managing Agent's resignation hereunder
as Managing Agent, the provisions of this Article 11, and Sections 12.3, 12.11
                                          ----------               ----  -----
and 12.22, shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be
    -----                                                                     
taken by it while it was Managing Agent under this Agreement.  If (a) the
Managing Agent has not been paid its agency fees under Section 3.6 or has not
                                                               ---           
been reimbursed for any expense reimbursable to it under Section 12.3, in either
                                                                 ----
case for a period of at least one (1) year and (b) no successor Managing Agent 
has accepted appointment as Managing.

<PAGE>
 
Agent by the date which is thirty (30) days following a retiring Managing
Agent's notice of resignation, the retiring Managing Agent's resignation shall
nevertheless thereupon become effective and the Banks shall perform all of the
duties of the Managing Agent hereunder until such time, if any, as the Requisite
Banks appoint a successor Managing Agent as provided for above.

          11.9  Foreclosure on Collateral.  In the event of foreclosure or
                -------------------------                                 
enforcement of the Lien created by any of the Collateral Documents, title to the
Collateral covered thereby shall be taken and held by the Managing Agent (or an
Affiliate or designee thereof) pro rata for the benefit of the Banks in
accordance with the Obligations outstanding to each of them and shall be
administered in accordance with the standard form of collateral holding
participation agreement used by the Managing Agent in comparable syndicated
credit facilities.

          11.10  No Obligations of Borrower.  Nothing contained in this Article
                 --------------------------                                    
11 shall be deemed to impose upon Borrower any obligation in respect of the due
and punctual performance by the Managing Agent of its obligations to the Banks
under any provision of this Agreement, and Borrower shall have no liability
the Managing Agent or any of the Banks in respect of any failure by the Managing
Agent or any Bank to perform any of its obligations to the Managing Agent or the
Banks under this Agreement.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing,
where any provision of this Agreement relating to the payment of any amounts due
and owing under the Loan Documents provides that such payments shall be made by
Borrower to the Managing Agent for the account of the Banks, Borrower's
obligations to the Banks in respect of such payments shall be deemed to be
satisfied upon the making of such payments to the Managing Agent in the manner
provided by this Agreement.

or other Loan Document are cumulative and not exclusive of any right, power,
privilege or remedy provided by Law or equity.  No failure or delay on the part
of the Managing Agent or any Bank in exercising any right, power, privilege or
remedy may be, or may be deemed to be, a waiver thereof; nor may any single or
partial exercise of any right, power, privilege or remedy preclude any other or
further exercise of the same or any other right, power, privilege or remedy.
The terms and conditions of Article 9 hereof are inserted for the sole benefit

without prejudicing the Managing Agent's or the Banks' rights to assert them in
whole or in part in respect of any other Loan.

                                                                -----
extent such forms are then required by applicable Laws, and all costs, expenses,
fees and charges payable or determined to be payable in connection with the
filing or recording of this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any other
instrument or writing to be delivered hereunder or thereunder, or in connection
with any transaction pursuant hereto or thereto, and shall reimburse, hold
harmless and indemnify on the terms set forth in 12.11 the Managing Agent and
                                                 ----- 
the Banks from and against any and all loss, liability or legal or other expense
with respect to or resulting from any delay in paying or failure to pay any such
tax, cost, expense, fee or charge or that any of them may suffer or incur by
reason of the failure of any Party to perform any of its Obligations. Any amount
payable to the Managing Agent or any Bank under this Section shall bear interest
from the second Banking Day following the date of demand for payment at the
Default Rate.

          12.4  Nature of Banks' Obligations.  The obligations of the Banks
                ----------------------------                               
hereunder are several and not joint or joint and several. Nothing contained in
this Agreement or any other Loan Document and no action taken by the Managing
Agent or the Banks or any of them pursuant hereto or thereto may, or may be
deemed to, make the Banks a partnership, an association, a joint venture or
other entity, either among themselves or with the Borrower or any Affiliate of
any of Borrower. Each Bank's obligation to make any Advance pursuant hereto is
several and not joint or joint and several, and in the case of the initial
Advance only is conditioned upon the performance by all other Banks of their
obligations to make initial Advances. A default by any Bank will not increase
the Pro Rata Share of the Commitment attributable to any other Bank. Any Bank
not in default may, if it desires, assume in such proportion as the non-
defaulting Banks agree the obligations of any Bank in default, but is not
obligated to do so. The Managing Agent agrees that it will use its best efforts
either to induce the other Banks to assume the obligations of a Bank in default
or to obtain another Bank, reasonably satisfactory to Borrower, to replace such
a Bank in default.

Parties to any Loan Document, will survive the making of the Loans here under

upon by the Managing Agent and each Bank, notwithstanding any investigation made
by the Managing Agent or any Bank or on their behalf.

          12.6  Notices.  Except as otherwise expressly provided in the Loan

otherwise specifies with respect to any Loan Document, (a) this Agreement and
any other Loan Document may be executed in any number of counterparts and any

Document by any party hereto or thereto will not become effective until
counterparts hereof or thereof, as the case may be, have been executed by all

          12.8  Binding Effect; Assignment.
                -------------------------- 

(a)       This Agreement and the other Loan Documents to which Borrower are a
     Party will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of Borrower, the
     Managing Agent, each of the Banks, and their respective successors and
     assigns, except that Borrower may not assign its rights hereunder or
              ------                                                     
     thereunder or any interest herein or therein without the prior written
     consent of all the Banks.  Each Bank represents that it is not acquiring
     its Note with a view to the distribution thereof within the meaning of the
     Securities Act of 1933, as amended (subject to any requirement that
     disposition of such Note must be within the control of such Bank).  Any
     Bank may at any time pledge its Note or any other instrument evidencing its
     rights as a Bank under this Agreement to a Federal Reserve Bank, but no
     such pledge shall release that Bank from its obligations hereunder or grant
     to such Federal Reserve Bank the rights of a Bank hereunder absent
     foreclosure of such pledge.

(b)       From time to time following the Closing Date, each Bank may assign to
     one or more Eligible Assignees all or any portion of its Pro Rata Share of
     the Commitment; provided that (i) such Eligible Assignee, if not then a
                     --------
     Bank or an Affiliate of the assigning Bank, shall be approved by each of
     the Managing Agent and (if no Event of Default then exists) Borrower
     (neither of which approvals shall be unreasonably withheld or delayed),
     (ii) such assignment shall be evidenced by a Commitment Assignment and
     Acceptance, a copy of which shall be furnished to the Managing Agent as
     hereinbelow provided, (iii) except in the case of an assignment to an
                                 ------
     Affiliate of the assigning Bank, to another Bank or of the entire remaining
     Commitment of the assigning Bank, the assign ment shall not assign a Pro
     Rata Share of the Commitment that is equivalent to less than $10,000,000,
     and (iv) the effective date of any such assignment shall be as specified in
     the Commitment Assignment and Acceptance, but not earlier than the date
     which is five (5) Banking Days after the date the Managing Agent has
     received the Commitment Assignment and Acceptance. Upon the effective date
     of such Commitment Assignment and Acceptance, the Eligible Assignee named
     therein shall be a Bank for all purposes of this Agreement, with the Pro
     Rata Share of the Commitment therein set forth and, to the extent of such
     Pro Rata Share, the assigning Bank shall be released from its further
     obligations under this Agreement. Borrower agrees that it shall execute and
     deliver (against delivery by the assigning Bank to Borrower of its Note) to
     such assignee Bank, a Note evidencing that assignee Bank's Pro Rata Share
     of the Commitment, and to the assigning Bank, a

                                     -112-
<PAGE>
 
     Note evidencing the remaining balance Pro Rata Share retained by the
     assigning Bank.

(c)       By executing and delivering a Commitment Assignment and Acceptance,
     the Eligible Assignee thereunder acknowledges and agrees that: (i) other
     than the representation and warranty that it is the legal and beneficial
     owner of the Pro Rata Share of the Commitment being assigned thereby free
     and clear of any adverse claim, the assigning Bank has made no
     representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility with respect to
     any statements, warranties or representations made in or in connection with
     this Agreement or the execution, legality, validity, enforceability,
     genuineness or sufficiency of this Agreement or any other Loan Document;
     (ii) the assigning Bank has made no representation or warranty and assumes
     no responsibility with respect to the financial condition of Borrower or
     the performance by Borrower of the Obligations; (iii) it has received a
     copy of this Agreement, together with copies of the most recent financial
     statements delivered pursuant to Section 8.1 and such other documents and
                                              ---                             
     information as it has deemed appropriate to make its own credit analysis
     and decision to enter into such Commitment Assignment and Acceptance; (iv)
     it will, independently and without reliance upon the Managing Agent or any
     Bank and based on such documents and information as it shall deem
     appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in
     taking or not taking action under this Agreement; (v) it appoints and
     authorizes the Managing Agent to take such action and to exercise such
     powers under this Agreement as are delegated to the Managing Agent by this
     Agreement; and (vi) it will perform in accordance with their terms all of
     the obligations which by the terms of this Agreement are required to be
     performed by it as a Bank.

(d)       The Managing Agent shall maintain at the Managing Agent's Office
     a copy of each Commitment Assignment and Acceptance delivered to it and a
     register (the "Register") of the names and address of each of the Banks and
     the Pro Rata Share of the Commitment held by each Bank, giving effect to
     each Commitment Assignment and Acceptance.  The Register shall be available
     during normal business hours for inspection by Borrower or any Bank upon
     reasonable prior notice to the Managing Agent.  After receipt of a
     completed Commitment Assignment and Acceptance executed by any Bank and an
     Eligible Assignee, and receipt of an assignment fee of $2,500 from such
     Bank or Eligible Assignee, the Managing Agent shall, promptly following the
     effective date thereof, provide to Borrower and the Banks a revised
     Schedule 1.1 giving effect there to.  Borrower, the Managing Agent and the
     ------------                                                              
     Banks shall deem and treat the Persons listed as Banks in the Register as
     the holders and 

                                     -113-
<PAGE>
 
     owners of the Pro Rata Share of the Commitment listed therein for all
     purposes hereof, and no assignment or transfer of any such Pro Rata Share
     of the Commitment shall be effective, in each case unless and until a
     Commitment Assignment and Acceptance effecting the assignment or transfer
     thereof shall have been accepted by the Managing Agent and recorded in the
     Register as provided above. Prior to such recordation, all amounts owed
     with respect to the applicable Pro Rata Share of the Commitment shall be
     owed to the Bank listed in the Register as the owner thereof, and any
     request, authority or consent of any Person who, at the time of making such
     request or giving such authority or consent, is listed in the Register as a
     Bank shall be conclusive and binding on any subsequent holder, assignee or
     transferee of the corresponding Pro Rata Share of the Commitment.

(e)       Each Bank may from time to time grant participations to one or
     more banks or other financial institutions (including another Bank) in a
                                                 ---------                   
     portion of its Pro Rata Share of the Commitment; provided, however, that
                                                      --------  -------      
     (i) such Bank's obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged,
     (ii) such Bank shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto
     for the performance of such obligations, (iii) the participating banks or
     other financial institutions shall not be a Bank hereunder for any purpose
     except, if the participation agreement so provides, for the purposes of
     ------
     Sections 3.7, 3.8, 12.11 and 12.22 but only to the extent that the cost of
              ---  ---  -----     -----
     such benefits to Borrower does not exceed the cost which Borrower would
     have incurred in respect of such Bank absent the participation, (iv)
     Borrower, the Managing Agent and the other Banks shall continue to deal
     solely and directly with such Bank in connection with such Bank's rights
     and obligations under this Agreement, (v) the participation interest shall
     be expressed as a percentage of the granting Bank's Pro Rata Share of the
     Commitment as it then exists and shall not restrict an increase in the
     Commitment, or in the granting Bank's Pro Rata Share of the Commitment, so
     long as the amount of the participation interest is not affected thereby,
     and (vi) the consent of the holder of such participation interest shall not
     be required for amendments or waivers of provisions of the Loan Documents
     other than those which (A) extend the Initial Reduction Date, the Maturity
     ----------                                                                
     Date or any other date upon which any payment of money is due to the Banks,
     (B) reduce the rate of interest on the Notes, any fee or any other monetary
     amount payable to the Banks, (C) reduce the amount of any installment of
     principal due under the Notes, or (D) release any material portion of the
     Collateral (except as may be otherwise expressly provided for in any Loan
     Document).

                                     -114-
<PAGE>
 
(f)       Notwithstanding anything in this Section to the contrary, the rights
     of the Banks to make assignments of, and grant participations in, their Pro
     Rata Shares of the Commitment shall be subject to the approval of any
     Gaming Board, to the extent required by applicable Gaming Laws, and to
     compliance with applicable securities laws.

          12.9  Right of Setoff.  If an Event of Default has occurred and is
                ---------------                                             
continuing, the Managing Agent or any Bank (but in each case only with the
consent of the Requisite Banks) may exercise its rights under Article 9 of the
Uniform Commercial Code and other applicable Laws and, to the extent permitted
by applicable Laws, apply any funds in any deposit account maintained with it
by Borrower and/or any Property of Borrower in its possession against the
Obligations.

          12.10  Sharing of Setoffs.  Each Bank severally agrees that if it,
                 ------------------                                         
through the exercise of any right of setoff, banker's lien or counterclaim
against Borrower, or otherwise, receives payment of the Obligations held by it
that is ratably more than any other Bank, through any means, receives in pay
ment of the Obligations held by that Bank, then, subject to applicable Laws:
(a) the Bank exercising the right of setoff, banker's lien or counterclaim or
otherwise receiving such payment shall purchase, and shall be deemed to have
simultaneously purchased, from the other Bank a participation in the Obligations
held by the other Bank and shall pay to the other Bank a purchase price in an
amount so that the share of the Obligations held by each Bank after the exercise
of the right of setoff, banker's lien or counterclaim or receipt of payment
shall be in the same proportion that existed prior to the exercise of the right
of setoff, banker's lien or counterclaim or receipt of payment; and (b) such
other adjustments and purchases of participations shall be made from time to
time as shall be equitable to ensure that all of the Banks share any payment
obtained in respect of the Obligations ratably in accordance with each Bank's
share of the Obligations immediately prior to, and without taking into account,
the payment; provided that, if all or any portion of a disproportionate
             --------                                                  
payment obtained as a result of the exercise of the right of setoff, banker's
lien, counterclaim or otherwise is thereafter recovered from the purchasing Bank
by Borrower or any Person claiming through or succeeding to the rights of
Borrower, the purchase of a participation shall be rescinded and the purchase
price thereof shall be restored to the extent of the recovery, but without
interest.  Each Bank that purchases a participation in the Obligations pursuant
to this Section shall from and after the purchase have the right to give all
notices, requests, demands, directions and other communications under this
Agreement with respect to the portion of the Obligations purchased to the same
extent as though the purchasing Bank were the original owner of the Obligations
purchased.  Borrower expressly consent to the foregoing arrangements and agree
that

                                     -115-
<PAGE>
 
any Bank holding a participation in an Obligation so purchased may exercise any
and all rights of setoff, banker's lien or counterclaim with respect to the
participation as fully as if the Bank were the original owner of the Obligation
purchased.

          12.11  Indemnity by Borrower.  Borrower agrees to indemnify, save and
                 ---------------------                                         
hold harmless the Managing Agent and each Bank and their directors, officers,
agents, attorneys and employees (collectively the "Indemnitees") from and
                                                   -----------

claim, demand, action, or cause of action for any amount excluded from the
definition of "Taxes" in Section 3.12(d)) if the claim, demand, action or cause

of action arises out of or relates to any act or omission (or alleged act or
omission) of Borrower, their Affiliates or any of their officers, directors or
stockholders relating to the Commitment, the use or contemplated use of proceeds
of any Loan, or the relationship of Borrower and the Banks under this Agreement;
(b) any administrative or investigative proceeding by any Governmental Agency
arising out of or related to a claim, demand, action or cause of action
described in clause (a) above; and (c) any and all liabilities, losses, costs or
                     -

attorneys and other professional services) that any Indemnitee suffers or incurs
as a result of the assertion of any foregoing claim, demand, action or cause of
action; provided that no Indemnitee shall be entitled to indemnification for any

loss caused by its own gross negligence or willful misconduct or for any loss
asserted against it by another Indemnitee.  If any claim, demand, action or
cause of action is asserted against any Indemnitee, such Indemnitee shall
promptly notify Borrower, but the failure to so promptly notify Borrower shall
not affect Borrower' obligations under this Section unless such failure
materially prejudices Borrower's right to participate in the contest of such
claim, demand, action or cause of action, as hereinafter provided.  Such
Indemnitee may (and shall, if requested by Borrower in writing) contest the
validity, applicability and amount of such claim, demand, action or cause of
action and shall permit Borrower to participate in such contest.  Any Indemnitee
that proposes to settle or compromise any claim or proceeding for which Borrower
may be liable for payment of indemnity hereunder shall give Borrower written
notice of the terms of such proposed settlement or compromise reasonably in
advance of settling or compromising such claim or proceeding and shall obtain
Borrower' prior consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).
In connection with any claim, demand, action or cause of action covered by this
Section against more than one Indemnitee, all such Indemnitees shall be
represented by the same legal counsel (which may be a law firm engaged by the
Indemnitees or attorneys employed by an Indemnitee or a combination of the
foregoing) selected by the

                                     -116-

Indemnitees and reasonably acceptable to Borrower; provided, that if such legal
                                                   --------                    
counsel determines in good faith that representing all such Indemnitees would or
could result in a conflict of interest under Laws or ethical principles
applicable to such legal counsel or that a defense or counterclaim is available
to an Indemnitee that is not available to all such Indemnitees, then to the
extent reasonably necessary to avoid such a conflict of interest or to permit
unqualified assertion of such a defense or counterclaim, each Indemnitee shall
be entitled to separate representation by legal counsel selected by that
Indemnitee and reasonably acceptable to Borrower, with all such legal counsel
using reasonable efforts to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort by counsel
for all Indemnitees; and further provided that the Managing Agent (as an
                         ------- --------                               
Indemnitee) shall at all times be entitled to representation by separate legal
counsel (which may be a law firm or attorneys employed by the Managing Agent or
a combination of the foregoing).  Any obligation or liability of Borrower to any
Indemnitee under this Section shall survive the expiration or termination of
this Agreement, the repayment of all Loans, the expiration or termination of all
Letters of Credit and the payment and performance of all other Obligations owed
to the Banks.

          12.12  Nonliability of the Banks.  Borrower acknowledges and agrees
                 -------------------------                                    
that:

(a)       Any inspections of any Property of Borrower made by or through
     the Managing Agent or the Banks are for purposes of administration of the
     Loan only and Borrower is not entitled to rely upon the same (whether or
     not such inspections are at the expense of Borrower);

(b)       By accepting or approving anything required to be observed,
     performed, fulfilled or given to the Managing Agent or the Banks pursuant
     to the Loan Documents neither the Managing Agent nor the Banks shall be
     deemed to have warranted or represented the sufficiency, legality,
     effectiveness or legal effect of the same, or of any term, provision or
     condition thereof, and such acceptance or approval thereof shall not
     constitute a warranty or representation to anyone with respect thereto by
     the Managing Agent or the Banks;

(c)       The relationship between Borrower and the Managing Agent and the
     Banks is, and shall at all times remain, solely that of borrower and
     lenders; neither the Managing Agent nor the Banks shall under any
     circumstance be construed to be partners or joint venturers of Borrower or
     its Affiliates; neither the Managing Agent nor the Banks shall under any
     circumstance be deemed to be in a relationship of confidence or trust or a
     fiduciary or other "special" relationship with Borrower or its

                                     -117-

     Affiliates, or to owe any fiduciary duty to Borrower or its Affiliates;
     neither the Managing Agent nor the Banks undertake or assume any
     responsibility or duty to Borrower or its Affiliates to select, review,
     inspect, supervise, pass judgment upon or inform Borrower or its Affiliates
     of any matter in connection with their Property or the operations of
     Borrower or its Affiliates; Borrower and its Affiliates shall rely entirely
     upon their own judgment with respect to such matters; and any review,
     inspection, supervision, exercise of judgment or supply of information
     undertaken or assumed by the Managing Agent or the Banks in connection with
     such matters is solely for the protection of the Managing Agent and the
     Banks and neither Borrower nor any other Person is entitled to rely
     thereon; and

(d)       The Managing Agent and the Banks shall not be responsible or
     liable to any Person for any loss, damage, liability or claim of any kind
     relating to injury or death to Persons or damage to Property caused by the
     actions, inaction or negligence of Borrower and/or its Affiliates and
     Borrower hereby indemnifies and hold the Managing Agent and the Banks
     harmless on the terms set forth in Section 12.11 from any such loss,
                                                -----                    
     damage, liability or claim.
     
          12.13  No Third Parties Benefited.  This Agreement is made for the
                 --------------------------                                 
purpose of defining and setting forth certain obligations, rights and duties of
Borrower, the Managing Agent and the Banks in connection with the Loans, and is
made for the sole benefit of Borrower, the Managing Agent and the Banks, and the
Managing Agent's and the Banks' successors and assigns.  Except as provided in
                                                         ------               
Sections 12.8 and 12.11, no other Person shall have any rights of any nature
         ----     -----                                                     
hereunder or by reason hereof.

          12.14  Confidentiality.  Each Bank agrees to hold any confidential
                 ---------------                                            
information that it may receive from Borrower pursuant to this Agreement in
confidence, except for disclosure:  (a) to other Banks; (b) to legal counsel
            ------

Borrower or any Bank, provided that the recipient has accepted such information
subject to a confidentiality agreement sub stantially similar to this Section;
(d) to regulatory officials having jurisdiction over that Bank; (e) to any
Gaming Board having regulatory jurisdiction over Borrower or its Subsidiaries,
provided that each Bank agrees to use its best efforts to notify Borrower of any
such disclosure unless prohibited by applicable Laws; (f) as required by Law or
legal process or in connection with any legal proceeding to which that Bank and
Borrower are adverse parties; and (g) to another financial institution in
connection with a disposition or proposed disposition to that financial

that the recipient has accepted such informa tion subject to a confidentiality
agreement substantially similar to this Section.  For purposes of the foregoing,
"confidential information" shall mean any information respecting Borrower or its
Subsidiaries reasonably considered by Borrower to be confidential, other than
                                                                   ----------
(i) information previously filed with any Governmental Agency and available to
the public, (ii) information previously published in any public medium from a
source other than, directly or indirectly, that Bank, and (iii) information
previously disclosed by Borrower to any Person not associated with Borrower
without a confidentiality agreement or obligation substantially similar to this
Section.  Nothing in this Section shall be construed to create or give rise to
any fiduciary duty on the part of the Managing Agent or the Banks to Borrower.

          12.15  Further Assurances.  Borrower and its Subsidiaries shall, at
                 ------------------                                           
their expense and without expense to the Banks or the Managing Agent, do,
execute and deliver such further acts and documents as the Requisite Banks or
the Managing Agent from time to time reasonably require for the assuring and
confirming unto the Banks or the Managing Agent of the rights hereby created or
intended now or hereafter so to be, or for carrying out the intention or
facilitating the performance of the terms of any Loan Document.

matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements, written or oral, on the
subject matter hereof.  In the event of any conflict between the provisions of
this Agreement and those of any other Loan Document, the provisions of this
Agreement shall control and govern; provided that the inclusion of supplemental
                                    --------                                   
rights or remedies in favor of the Managing Agent or the Banks in any other Loan
Document shall not be deemed a conflict with this Agreement.  Each Loan Document
was drafted with the joint participation of the respective parties thereto and
shall be construed neither against nor in favor of any party, but rather in
accordance with the fair meaning thereof.

          12.17  Governing Law.  Except to the extent otherwise provided
                 -------------   ------                                 
therein, each Loan Document shall be governed by, and construed and enforced in

that is held to be inoperative, unenforceable or invalid as to any party or in
any jurisdiction shall, as to that party or jurisdiction, be inoperative,
unenforceable or invalid without affecting the remaining provisions or the

                                     -119-

operation, enforceability or validity of that provision as to any other party or
in any other jurisdiction, and to this end the provisions of all Loan Documents
are declared to be severable.

                 --------                                                     
the other Loan Documents are included for convenience of reference only and are
not part of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents for any other purpose.

or otherwise organized under the Laws of a jurisdiction other than the United
States of America or any State thereof or the District of Columbia shall deliver
to Borrower (with a copy to the Managing Agent), within twenty (20) days after
the Closing Date (or after accepting an assignment or receiving a participation
interest herein pursuant to Section 12.8, if applicable) two duly completed

copies, signed by a Responsible Official, of either Form 1001 (relating to such
Bank and entitling it to a complete exemption from withholding on all payments
to be made to such Bank by Borrower pursuant to this Agreement) or Form 4224

Managing Agent that no withholding under the federal income tax laws is required
with respect to such Bank.  Thereafter and from time to time, each such Bank
shall upon request by Borrower (a) promptly submit to Borrower (with a copy to
the Managing Agent), such additional duly completed and signed copies of one of
such forms (or such successor forms as shall be adopted from time to time by the
relevant United States taxing authorities) as may then be available under then
current United States laws and regulations to avoid, or such evidence as is
satisfactory to Borrower and the Managing Agent of any available exemption from,
United States withholding taxes in respect of all payments to be made to such
Bank by Borrower pursuant to this Agreement and (b) take such steps as shall not
be materially disadvantageous to it, in the reasonable judgment of such Bank,
and as may be reasonably necessary (including the re-designation of its
Eurodollar Lending Office, if any) to avoid any requirement of applicable Laws
that Borrower make any deduction or withholding for taxes from amounts payable
to such Bank.  In the event that Borrower or the Managing Agent become aware
that a participation has been granted pursuant to Section 12.8(e) to a financial
                                                          -------

cause such participant financial institution to deliver the same documents and
information to Borrower and the Managing Agent as would be required under this
Section if such financial institution were a Bank.

Bank) and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents from and

and the reasonably allocated costs of attorneys employed by the Managing Agent
or any Bank, and expenses to the extent that the defense of any such action has
not been assumed by Borrower), arising directly or indirectly out of (i) the

any releases or discharges of any Hazardous Materials on, under or from any Real
Property and (ii) any activity carried on or undertaken on or off any Real
Property by Borrower or any of its predecessors in title, whether prior to or

any predecessor in title, or any third persons at any time occupying or present

any Property or natural resources arising in connection with the generation,
use, handling, storage, transport or disposal of any such Hazardous Materials,
