The obligations existing under the Prepetition First Lien Credit Agreement that will be converted into the DIP Facility include certain make-whole payments that are due and owing under the Prepetition First Lien Credit Agreement. As part of the settlement embodied in the RSA, those make-whole obligations will be limited to $50 million, subject to certain upward and downward adjustments…of the Interim Order and the RSA.”
