PART I Item 1. Business (a) General Business Overview Computer Associates International, Inc. (the "Company," "Registrant," or "CA") is a leading business software company, delivering the end-to-end infrastructure to enable eBusiness through innovative technology, services, and education. CA provides mission-critical software solutions for all kinds of businesses throughout the world. With a portfolio of more than 800 software products, including enterprise management, database and application development, as well as the products that provide the infrastructure for eBusiness and eCommerce over the Internet, and a professional services organization dedicated to understanding the needs of its customers, CA is committed to meeting the information technology requirements of businesses in every sector of the economy. Built upon a common infrastructure, CA's array of enterprise management, information management, and business application software solutions are available for use on a variety of both mainframe and distributed systems. Because of its independence from hardware manufacturers, the Company provides clients with integrated solutions that are platform neutral. CA products can be used on all major hardware platforms, operating systems, and application development environments for enterprise computing. The operating environments include OS/390 from International Business Machines ("IBM"), the UNIX systems from such hardware vendors as Sun Microsystems, Inc. ("Sun"), Hewlett-Packard Company ("HP"), IBM, Compaq Computer Corporation ("Compaq"), and Windows NT from Microsoft Corporation. CA maintains a product philosophy of internally developing products, exemplified by its flagship product family Unicenter TNG R (The Next Generation),TM the industry's de facto standard for enterprise management software, coupled with the acquisition of key technology, the integration of the two, and the establishment of a network of strategic alliances with key business partners. The Company's service philosophy is similarly marked by a commitment to the development of a dedicated internal service staff, the acquisition of third-party service organizations, the integration of the two, and long-standing alliances with leading service providers. Since 1999, CA completed several strategic acquisitions, which included Computer Management Sciences, Inc. ("CMSI") in March 1999, a custom developer of information technology solutions. CMSI specialized in Internet development, business process reengineering, strategy planning, evolutionary downsizing, rapid application development, object-oriented databases, vendor software evaluation, and other key technology areas. This acquisition was accounted for using the purchase method of accounting. See Note 2 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information concerning acquisitions. In May 1999, the Company acquired PLATINUM technology International, inc. ("PLATINUM") in a cash transaction. PLATINUM was engaged in the design, development, marketing, and support of database tools and utilities, tools for enterprise management, data warehousing, and provided a wide range of professional services. The acquisition was accounted for using the purchase method of accounting. See Note 2 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information concerning acquisitions. In February 2000, the Company entered into an agreement to acquire Sterling Software, Inc. ("Sterling") through an exchange of stock. Sterling's solutions are used to create, control, automate, and manage both traditional and eBusiness systems. Sterling's portal technology provides access to data stored in corporate databases in the same way that Internet content portals provide access to the wealth of content on the Web. The acquisition further expanded CA's broad array of products and services while accelerating their delivery. The acquisition, completed on March 31, 2000, was accounted for using the purchase method of accounting. See Note 2 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information concerning acquisitions. As part of the Company's overall eBusiness initiative, CA released Jasmine R ii this past year. Jasmine ii is the world's first intelligent and integrated platform for eBusiness. Jasmine ii provides a complete solution for building, testing, and deploying intelligent eBusiness applications. Along with Unicenter TNG, which provides management of the eBusiness infrastructure, including Internet security and storage management, Jasmine ii is becoming a key solution within CA's eBusiness offerings. Also during fiscal year 2000, CA launched interBiz TM Solutions("interBiz") to assist clients, suppliers, and partners in capitalizing on eCommerce business opportunities. interBiz will use core CA technologies, including Unicenter TNG, Jasmine ii, 3-D visualization,and Neugents TM neural network pattern recognition to create a business management framework, named BizWorks,TM as foundation for inter- and intra-business communication and business application integration. The Company was incorporated in Delaware in 1974. In December 1981, CA completed its initial public offering of Common Stock. The Company's Common Stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "CA".

(b) Financial Information About Industry Segments CA's global business is principally in a single industry segment-the design, development, marketing, licensing, and support of integrated computer software products operating on a diverse range of hardware platforms and operating systems. See Note 4 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for financial data pertaining to geographic areas. (c) Narrative Description of Business Products CA offers over 800 enterprise systems management, information management, application development, eBusiness, and business applications solutions to a broad spectrum of organizations. The Company's software products and service offerings enable clients to use their total data processing resources-hardware, software, and personnel-more efficiently. The Company provides products that effectively manage the complex, heterogeneous systems upon which businesses depend. CA's solutions enable clients to use the latest technologies while preserving their substantial investments in hardware, software, and staff expertise. By employing a common infrastructure, the Company's developers create modular software designed to be continually and consistently improved. This pragmatic approach protects clients' investments by using scalar, evolutionary change rather than revolutionary disruption and waste. CA is the largest independent supplier of software solutions for IBM OS/390 and the acknowledged market leader in systems management. For over 20 years, CA solutions have enabled our clients to better manage the complex mainframe environment by providing them with the tools to measure and improve computer hardware and software performance and programmer productivity. As the information technology landscape has changed, these solutions have emerged as leaders in enterprise-wide systems as well as network management. While supporting the eBusiness enhancements of the most current release of IBM's OS/390 operating system through CA's systems and data management solutions, CA's software architecture is specifically designed to help clients migrate to distributed computing or build new distributed systems. The Company's integrated distributed systems management solutions manage this complex environment. Full-function distributed business applications simplify customization to meet unique business needs on a combination of platforms. This past fiscal year, CA announced Unicenter R TND TM(The Next Dimension), the latest version of Unicenter TNG, CA's award-winning enterprise management solution. By delivering time-based advancements in predictive management, Unicenter TND will enable clients to harness the dimension of time in order to optimize availability of their eBusiness environments. Since its introduction in fiscal year 1997, Unicenter TNG has become the industry's de facto standard for enterprise management software. Unicenter TNG is an object-oriented solution that enables organizations to visualize and control their entire information technology infrastructure-including applications, databases, systems, and networks-from a business perspective. This technology establishes a link between an organization's information technology resources and its business policies. Through Unicenter TNG, an organization can define its business policies, map these policies to particular resource management requirements, and then monitor resources for their support of specific business processes. The flexible Business Process Views TM can be customized to deliver the information based on specific roles, locations, resources, and any other dimensions of control. To visualize the complex interactions and interdependencies of an enterprise's entire distributed environment,Unicenter TNG employs a Real World Interface TM that incorporates 3-D animation and elements of virtual reality. The revolutionary technology of Unicenter TND, built on Jasmine ii, provides the platform to manage processes and transactions at every point in Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business-to-Consumer (B2C) environments. Following full-scale delivery in fiscal year 1999 of Neugents, CA's patented neural network-based technology, clients began actual deployment of Neugents in their environments. From building intelligent eBusiness applications with Jasmine ii to ensuring optimal service for eBusiness with Unicenter TNG to maximizing eBusiness opportunities with CA Services,TM Neugents enable clients to reduce costs, simplify operational complexity, and improve staff efficiency. Neugents provide predictive intelligence to virtually all aspects of CA's end-to-end infrastructure for eBusiness. Neugents are intelligent software agents that exist throughout various computing environments to recognize certain patterns and record the resulting transition states. Neugents enable an entirely new generation of business applications to analyze conditions in business markets and technical environments, predict changes in those conditions, and suggest courses of action to capitalize on opportunities and/or avoid potential problems. When employed with Unicenter TNG, Neugents can proactively prevent performance and availability problems with a level of precision and rigor unattainable by conventional trend and resource analysis solutions. With this year's release of Jasmine ii, CA offers a comprehensive information infrastructure that enables organizations to use leading-edge technologies as well as existing data and logic to quickly build, deploy and

manage a new generation of intelligent eBusiness solutions. These highly visual Web-enabled applications effectively use a broad spectrum of enterprise information resources, communication facilities, and end-user devices to deliver substantial competitive advantages in today's rapidly evolving business environment. Leveraging CA's patented Neugents technology, Jasmine ii is a complete eBusiness platform, powering unique and dynamically personalized Exchanges and Portals. It dramatically speeds time-to-market of B2B, B2C, Application Service Providers (ASP), and trading exchange applications. The prevalence of the Internet and electronic communications has increased the possibility of security breaches of an organization's information systems and data. For over 20 years, CA clients have relied upon CA's security solutions, such as CA-Top Secret R and CA-ACF2 R in the OS/390 marketplace, to protect data from internal and external intrusion. CA's leading-edge security solutions provide access control, authentication and authorization for complete cross-platform security and enable organizations to set security policies mapped to their business objectives. To meet the growing security concerns associated with the expansion of eBusiness and eCommerce, CA introduced its eTrust TM offerings during fiscal year 2000. eTrust is a comprehensive set of security solutions designed to assure privacy of information, certify user identification and authorization, protect business assets against malicious attacks such as viruses, and prevent destruction and theft of information. Included are eTrustTM Access Control,TM eTrust TM Admin, eTrust TM Anti-Virus, eTrust TM Audit, eTrust TM Desktop Security, and eTrust TM Encryption. In addition, CA provides a wide range of services, such as the implementation of appropriate protection policies and procedures, to complement these eTrust products. With its existing mainframe storage management products, the ARCserve R storage management tools, and the storage tools recently acquired from Sterling, the Company's storage solutions deliver a comprehensive integrated management solution for enterprise-wide data storage. This includes leading-edge backup and recovery for SANs (Storage Area Networks) and Windows 2000. For more than 20 years, CA has been the premium provider of systems and database management solutions for OS/390. CA's OS/390 solutions, including security scheduling, storage, automation, performance and output management products, interface with the newest release of IBM's flagship server environment to better manage this complex mainframe environment. Professional Services Through the acquisition of PLATINUM and Sterling as well as through the addition of specialized professional services companies, the Company continued expansion of its professional services organization during fiscal year 2000. Now known as CA Services, it is responsible for providing a broad spectrum of services ranging from consulting to implementation to comprehensive outsourcing and custom developing leading-edge IT solutions. These services can improve implementation and deployment of the Company's solutions to enable eBusiness, which the Company believes will lead to universal customer satisfaction and greater follow-on sales. Sales and Marketing CA distributes, markets, and supports its products on a worldwide basis with its own employees and a network of independent value-added resellers ("VARs"), distributors, and dealers. The Company has approximately 5,600 sales and sales support personnel engaged in promoting the licensing of the Company's products. In April 2000, the Company realigned its entire sales organization, changing its focus from one based primarily on geography to one based on product orientation. The worldwide sales organization is now aligned into three main groups, with primary emphasis on the following product areas: OS/390, distributed enterprise management, and distributed application and information management. A separate Strategic Accounts group provides additional services to large clients, including facilities managers. Facilities managers deliver data processing services using the Company's products to those companies that prefer to "outsource" their computer processing operations. The Company also operates through wholly owned subsidiaries located in 44 countries outside the United States. Each of these subsidiaries has sales executives that market all or most of the Company's products in their respective territory. Approximately 34% of CA's net revenue in fiscal year 2000 was derived from operations outside the United States. In addition, the Company's products are marketed by independent distributors in those limited areas of the world where it does not have a direct presence. Revenue from independent distributors accounted for less than 1% of the Company's fiscal year 2000 revenue. The Company's marketing and marketing services groups produce substantially all of the user documentation for its products, as well as promotional brochures, advertising, and other business solicitation materials. The duties of these groups include the writing of the requisite materials, editing, typesetting, photocomposition, and printing. Licensing CA does not sell or transfer title to its products to its clients. The products are licensed on a "right to use" basis pursuant to license agreements. Such licenses generally require that the client use the product only for its internal purposes at its own computer installation. In addition, the Company

offers license agreements to facility managers which enable them to use the Company's software in conjunction with their outsourcing business. Under certain circumstances, the Company will also license, on a non-exclusive basis, clients and other third parties as resellers of certain of the Company's products. The Company is encouraging VARs to actively market the Company's products. VARs often bundle the Company's products with specialized consulting services to provide clients with a complete solution. Such VARs generally service a particular market or sector and provide enhanced user-specific solutions. CA offers several types of software licenses. Under the standard license form, the client agrees to pay a license fee for use of the software and either an annual usage and maintenance fee, or an annual optional maintenance fee for as long as the client elects to continue receiving maintenance services. Where maintenance is elected throughout the license term, the maintenance fees typically approximate 20% of the aggregate license and maintenance fees for the product. Where applicable, payment of the maintenance fee entitles the client to receive technical support for the product, as well as to receive all enhancements and improvements (other than features subject to a separate charge) to the product developed by the Company during the period covered. A significant number of the Company's clients elect to license the Company's products under a variety of installment payment options. These plans primarily incorporate license fees and optional maintenance fees into annual or monthly payments ranging from one to ten years. The Company also offers licenses for products and groups of products based on the size of an enterprise's computing power as measured in MIPS-millions of instructions per second. Under this option, the client is free to reallocate hardware or modify user configurations without incremental costs. Similar licensing alternatives are available for CA's midrange and UNIX-based software products. Some of the Company's distributed products, notably the Unicenter TNG family of products, are licensed on a power unit basis. These licenses are typically perpetual in nature whereby the client has the option to elect maintenance (technical support and product enhancements) on an annual basis. Distributed products sold through third-party VARs, distributors, and dealers are generally subject to distribution licensing agreements and end-user "shrink wrap" licenses. Product revenue for licenses is recognized upon delivery of the product to the client. Maintenance fees are recognized ratably over the agreed maintenance term. When the client has elected to pay the license fee in monthly or annual installments, the present value of the license fee is recognized as product revenue upon delivery of the product. Maintenance is unbundled from the selling price and ratably recognized over the term of the agreement. See Note 1 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for further discussion of revenue recognition policies. Under its standard form of license agreement, the Company warrants that its products will perform in accordance with specifications published in the product documentation. Competition and Risks The computer software business is highly competitive. It is marked by rapid, substantial technological change, as well as the steady emergence of new companies and products. In addition, it is affected by such issues as the Year 2000 date change and the introduction by the European Economic and Monetary Union of the Euro. There are many companies, including IBM, Sun, HP, Compaq, and other large computer manufacturers, which have substantially greater resources, as well as the ability to develop and market software programs similar to and competitive with the products offered by the Company. Competitive products are also offered by numerous independent software companies, which specialize in specific aspects of the highly fragmented software industry. Some, like Microsoft, Oracle Corporation, and SAP AG, are the leading developers and vendors in their specialized markets. IBM, HP, Sun, Compaq, and Microsoft are by far the largest suppliers of systems software, and are the manufacturers of the computer hardware systems used by most of the Company's clients. Historically, these operating system manufacturers have modified or introduced new operating systems, systems software, and computer hardware. Such new products could in the future incorporate features which are currently performed by the Company's products or could require substantial modification of the Company's products to maintain compatibility with these companies' hardware or software. Although the Company has to date been able to adapt its products and its business to changes introduced by hardware manufacturers, there can be no assurance that it will be able to do so in the future. In the past, licensees using proprietary operating systems were furnished with "source code," which makes the operating system generally understandable to programmers, or "object code," which directly controls the hardware, and other technical documentation. Since the availability of source code facilitated the development of systems and applications software which must interface with the operating systems, independent software vendors such as the Company were able to develop and market compatible software. IBM and other hardware vendors have a policy of restricting the use or availability of the source code for some of their operating systems. To date, this policy has not had a material effect on the Company. However, such restrictions may, in the future, result in higher research and development costs for the Company in connection with the enhancement and modification of the Company's existing products and the development of new products. Although the Company does not expect such

restrictions will have this effect on its products, there can be no assurance that such restrictions or other restrictions will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's business. The Company anticipates ongoing use of microcode or firmware provided by hardware manufacturers. Microcode and firmware are essentially software programs in hardware form and are therefore less flexible than pure software. The Company believes that such continued use will not have a significant impact on the Company's operations and that its products will remain compatible with any changes to such code. However, there can be no assurance that future technological developments will not have an adverse impact on the Company's operations. Although no company competes with CA across its entire software product line or a significant portion thereof, the Company considers at least 75 firms to be directly competitive with one or more of the Company's systems software packages. In database management, applications development, enterprise management, and applications software for the desktop, distributed, and mainframe environments, there are hundreds of companies whose primary business focus is on at least one but not all of these solutions. Certain of these companies have substantially larger operations than the Company's in these specific niches. Many companies, large and small, use their own technical personnel to develop programs similar to those of the Company; these companies may rightly be seen as competitors of the Company. The Company believes that the most important considerations for potential purchasers of software packages are: product capabilities; ease of installation and use; dependability and quality of technical support; documentation and training; the experience and financial stability of the vendor; integration of the product line; and, to a lesser extent, price. Price is a strong factor in the distributed marketplace. As the distributed market continues to expand and develop, competitors could be expected to form strategic alliances or acquire other companies to increase their presence in this market. The Company's products are designed to improve the productivity and efficiency of its clients' information processing resources. Accordingly, in a recessionary environment, the Company's products are often a reasonable economic alternative to customers faced with the prospect of incurring expenditures to increase their existing information processing resources. However, a general or regional slowdown in the world economy could adversely affect the Company's operations. Additionally, further deterioration of the exchange rate of foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar may continue to affect the Company's ability to increase its revenue within those markets. As the Company grows, it is increasingly dependent upon large dollar enterprise transactions with individual clients. The size and magnitude of such transactions have increased over time. There are no assurances that comparable transactions will occur in subsequent periods. The Company's future operating results may also be affected by a number of other factors, including but not limited to: a significant percentage of the Company's quarterly sales being finalized in the last few days of the period making financial forecasts especially difficult, which could create a substantial risk of variances with the actual results; the continued risks of potential litigation arising from the Year 2000 date change for computer programs; the emergence of new competitive initiatives resulting from rapid technological advances; changes in pricing in the market; the risks associated with new product introductions as well as the uncertainty of marketplace acceptance of these new or enhanced products from either the Company or its competitors; risks associated with the entry into new markets at lower profit margins, such as professional services; the risks associated with integrating newly acquired businesses and technologies; delays in product delivery; reliance on mainframe capacity growth; the ability to recruit and retain qualified personnel; business conditions in the distributed and mainframe software and hardware markets; the strength of the Company's distribution channels; uncertainty and volatility associated with Internet and eBusiness related activities; the ability to update the Company's product offerings to conform with new governmental rules; use of software patent rights to attempt to limit competition; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates; the volatility of the international marketplace; uncertainties relative to global economic conditions; the Company's reliance on a single family of products for a material portion of its sales; the effect of new accounting pronouncements and interpretations on the Company's revenue recognition practices; the Company's ability to manage fixed and variable expense growth relative to revenue growth; and other risks described in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. With the acquisition of Sterling on March 31, 2000, and a subsequent worldwide sales reorganization in April 2000, there can be no assurances that the distractions and uncertainties caused by these events will not have a negative effect on the Company's revenue and net income during fiscal year 2001. Product Protection The products of the Company are treated as trade secrets which contain confidential information. CA relies on its contractual agreements with clients as well as its own security systems and confidentiality procedures for protection. In addition to obtaining patent protection for new technology, the Company protects its products, their documentation, and other written materials under copyright law. The Company also obtains trademark protection for its various product names. CA from time to time receives notices from third parties

claiming infringement by the Company's products on third-party proprietary rights. The Company expects that its software will be subject to such claims more frequently as the number of products and competitors in the Company's industry grows and the functionality of products overlap. Such claims could result in litigation, which could be costly and/or result in licensing arrangements on terms not favorable to the Company, including the payment of royalties to third parties. CA's business could be adversely affected by such litigation and licensing arrangements and by any inability on CA's part to develop substitute technology. Clients No individual client accounted for a material portion of the Company's revenue during any of the past three fiscal years. Since the majority of the Company's software is used with relatively expensive computer hardware, most of its revenue is derived from companies which have the resources to make a substantial commitment to data processing and their computer installations. The majority of the world's major companies use one or more of the Company's software packages. The Company's software products are generally used in a broad range of industries, businesses, and applications. The Company's clients include manufacturers, financial service providers, banks, insurance companies, educational institutions, hospitals, and government agencies. The Company's products are also sold to and through distributors and VARs. Product Development The history of the computer industry has seen rapid changes in hardware and software technology. The Company must maintain the usefulness of its products as well as modify and enhance its products to accommodate changes to, and to ensure compatibility with, hardware and software. To date, the Company has been able to adapt its products to changes in the computer industry and, as described more fully in "General Business Overview-Products," the Company believes that it will be able to do so in the future. Computer software vendors must also continually ensure that their products meet the needs of clients in the ever-changing marketplace. Accordingly, the Company has the policy of continually enhancing, improving, adapting, and adding new features to its products, as well as developing additional products. The Company offers a facility for many of its software products whereby problem diagnosis, program "fixes," and other mainframe services can be provided online between the client's installation and the support facilities of the Company. Another service, CA-TCC SM (Total Client Care),SM provides a major extension to existing support services of the Company by offering access to the Company's client support database. In addition, the Company offers support services online via the Internet through its Web Track facility. These services have contributed to the Company's ability to provide maintenance more efficiently. Product development work is primarily done at the Company's facilities in San Diego, California; Maitland, Florida; Chicago, Illinois; Framingham, Massachusetts; Mount Laurel, New Jersey; Princeton, New Jersey; Islandia, New York; Cincinnati, Ohio; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Dallas, Texas; and Herndon, Virginia. The Company also performs product development in Sydney, Australia; Vienna, Austria; Brussels, Belgium; Vancouver, Canada; Ditton Park, England; Paris, France; Darmstadt, Germany; Tel Aviv, Israel; and Milan, Italy. For fiscal years ended March 31, 2000, 1999, and 1998, product development and enhancements charged to operations were $568 million, $423 million, and $369 million, respectively. In fiscal years 2000, 1999, and 1998, the Company capitalized $36 million, $29 million, and $23 million, respectively, of internally developed software costs. Certain of the Company's products were acquired from other companies and individuals. The Company continues to seek synergistic companies, products, and partnerships. The purchase price of acquired products (such as purchased software) is capitalized and amortized over the useful life of such purchases or a period not exceeding seven years. Employees As of March 31, 2000, the Company had approximately 21,000 employees. Of this total, approximately 2,600 were located at its headquarters facility in Islandia, New York, approximately 10,300 were located at other offices in the United States, and approximately 8,100 were located at its offices in foreign countries. Of the total employees, approximately 5,200 were engaged in product development efforts, 6,700 were part of the Field Services Group, and 5,600 were engaged in sales and sales support functions. The Company believes its employee relations are excellent. (d) Financial Information About Foreign and Domestic Operations and Export Revenue See Note 4 of Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements for financial data pertaining to the geographic distribution of the Company's operations. Item 2. Properties The principal properties of the Company are geographically distributed to meet sales and operating requirements. All of the properties of the Company are generally considered to be both suitable and adequate to meet current operating requirements. The Company leases approximately 260 office facilities throughout the United States, including two new regional facilities in Herndon, Virginia and Framingham, Massachusetts totaling approximately 230,000 square feet and 150,000

square feet, respectively. The Company has approximately 245 office facilities outside the United States. Expiration dates on material lease obligations range from fiscal years 2001 to 2023. The Company owns an 850,000 square-foot Corporate Headquarters in Islandia, New York, as well as various office facilities in the United States ranging from 1,000 to 250,000 square feet. The Company owns two office facilities in Germany totaling approximately 120,000 square feet and one office facility in Italy with approximately 140,000 square feet. In October 1999, the Company completed construction of its 250,000 square-foot European Headquarters in the United Kingdom. The Company owns various computer, telecommunications, and electronic equipment. It also leases IBM, HP, Sun, Comdisco, Ameritech, El Camino, Meridian, and DG computers located at the Company's facilities in Islandia, New York and Chicago, Illinois. This equipment is used for the Company's internal product development, for technical support efforts and for administrative purposes. The Company considers its computer and other equipment to be adequate for its needs. See Note 7 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for information concerning lease obligations. Item 3. Legal Proceedings The Company and certain of its officers are defendants in a number of shareholder class action lawsuits alleging that a class consisting of all persons who purchased the Company's stock during the period January 20, 1998 until July 22, 1998 were harmed by misleading statements, representations, and omissions regarding the Company's future financial performance. These cases have been consolidated into a single action (the "Shareholder Action") in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York ("New York Federal Court"). The New York Federal Court has denied the defendants' motion to dismiss the Shareholder Action, and the parties currently are engaged in discovery. Although the ultimate outcome and liability, if any, cannot be determined, management, after consultation and review with counsel, believes that the facts in the Shareholder Action do not support the plaintiffs' claims and that the Company and its officers and directors have meritorious defenses. In addition, three derivative actions alleging misleading statements and omissions similar to those alleged in the Shareholder Action were brought in the New York Federal Court on behalf of the Company against a majority of the Company's directors. An additional derivative action on behalf of the Company, alleging that the Company issued 14.25 million more shares than were authorized under the 1995 Key Employee Stock Ownership Plan (the "1995 Plan"), also was filed in the New York Federal Court. These derivative actions have been consolidated into a single action (the "Derivative Action") in the New York Federal Court. The Derivative Action has been stayed. Lastly, a derivative action on behalf of the Company was filed in the Chancery Court in Delaware (the "Delaware Action") alleging that 9.5 million more shares were issued to the three 1995 Plan participants than were authorized under the 1995 Plan. The Company and its directors who are parties to the Derivative Action and the Delaware Action have announced that an agreement has been reached to settle the Delaware Action and the Derivative Action. Under the terms of the proposed settlement, which is subject to the approval of the Delaware Court of Chancery and dismissal of related claims by the New York Federal Court, the 1995 Plan participants will return 4.5 million shares of Computer Associates stock to the Company, at which time the Company will record a non-cash gain. The Company, various subsidiaries and certain current and former officers have been named as defendants in various claims and lawsuits arising in the normal course of business. The Company believes that the facts do not support the plaintiffs' claims and intends to vigorously contest each of them. Item 4. Submission of Matters to Vote of Security Holders None.

Item 7. management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations This Annual Report on Form 10-K contains certain forward-looking statements and information relating to the Company that are based on the beliefs and assumptions made by the Company's management as well as information currently available to management. When used in this document, the words "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," and "expect," and similar expressions, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements reflect the current views of the Company with respect to future events and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described herein as anticipated, believed, estimated, or expected. The Company does not intend to update these forward-looking statements. Fiscal Year 2000 Total contract value for the year ended March 31, 2000 increased 29%, or $1.51 billion, over the prior year. Excluding an approximate $107 million negative foreign exchange impact, total contract value increased 31% to $6.87 billion. Net revenue increased 31%, or $1.44 billion for the year. The license revenue increase was primarily attributable to growth in distributed platform product fees principally Unicenter TNG, a family of integrated business solutions for monitoring and administering systems management across multi-platform environments, the addition of PLATINUM products and the demand for eCommerce solutions. The distributed platform accounted for 50% of the Company's overall year-to-date contract value, increasing 35%, or $870 million, over the prior fiscal year. Maintenance increased 18%, or $135 million, over last year. The increase was primarily due to additional maintenance from prior year license arrangements, as well as from PLATINUM licenses. Acquisitions of several services companies, including PLATINUM's services operations and CMSI, as well as internal growth, increased professional services revenue by 74%, or $212 million, over the prior year. Professional services for the year ended March 31, 2000 was negatively impacted by the Company's use of consultants to supplement its technical resources during and after the changeover of the date to the year 2000. The consultants were positioned at large client sites, without charge to the client, to assist with any potential difficulties attributable to the date change. Such activities were conducted by the Company during December 1999 and January 2000. The process of reducing low margin contracts associated with recently acquired companies has negatively impacted professional services revenue. Total net revenue in the United States for the year ended March 31, 2000 grew 38% over the prior year. This resulted from continued growth in distributed platform product sales, OS/390 solutions, the addition of PLATINUM products, and professional services. On a year-to-date basis, sales in the United States represented 66% of net revenue for fiscal year 2000, compared to 63% for fiscal year 1999. On a year-to-date basis, international net revenue, excluding the $107 million negative foreign exchange impact, increased by $437 million, or 28%, over the prior year. The international growth was supported by the Asia/Pacific operations, which contributed more than half of the increase this fiscal year compared to the prior fiscal year. Price changes did not have a material impact year-to-date in fiscal year 2000 or in the comparable period in fiscal year 1999. Selling, general, and administrative expenses as a percentage of net revenue for the year, excluding the charges associated with CHS Electronics, Inc. ("CHS") of approximately $50 million, decreased to 30% from 31% the prior year. The decrease was largely attributable to efficiencies realized by eliminating redundant headcount and overhead expenses as a result of the PLATINUM integration. This was partially offset by an increase in personnel costs related to an overall increase in headcount resulting from the expansion of the Company's Field Services Group (professional services technical resources), as well as higher spending on marketing associated with a new television campaign which commenced in the quarter ended December 31, 1999. Product development and enhancement expenses increased $145 million, or 34%, for the year compared to last year. There was continued emphasis on adapting and enhancing products for the distributed processing environment, in particular Unicenter TNG, Jasmine ii, and Neugents, as well as the broadening of the Company's eCommerce product offerings, and additional expenses related to development efforts of products obtained through the acquisition of PLATINUM. Commissions and royalties as a percentage of net revenue were 5% and 6% for fiscal years 2000 and 1999, respectively. Depreciation and amortization expense in the year increased $269 million. The increase was primarily due to the additional amortization of purchased intangibles associated with the acquisition of PLATINUM, marginally offset by the scheduled reductions in the amortization associated with past acquisitions. Net interest expense increased $216 million for this year compared to last year. The additional interest expense was related to the increase in average debt outstanding associated with borrowings incurred to fund the PLATINUM acquisition in the first quarter of fiscal year 2000 and other smaller acquisitions in the current and prior fiscal years. The pre-tax income of $1.59 billion for fiscal year 2000 is an increase of 57%, or $580 million, over fiscal year 1999. Excluding special charges of $645 and $150 million for in-process research and development relating to the

acquisitions of PLATINUM and Sterling, respectively, and approximately $50 million relating to CHS, pre-tax income would be $2.44 billion, a 17% increase over the prior year exclusive of any special charges. Net income for the year ended March 31, 2000 was $696 million, an increase of $70 million, or 11%, over fiscal year 1999. Year-to-date net income, excluding the aforementioned in-process research and development charges and CHS charge, was $1.52 billion, an increase of $222 million, or 17%, over last year's net income, exclusive of the one-time after-tax charge of $675 million associated with the vesting of 20.25 million shares under the 1995 Plan. The Company's consolidated year-to-date effective tax rate, excluding the purchased research and development and the 1995 Plan charges, was 37.5% for both fiscal years 2000 and 1999. The addition of non-deductible intangibles from the acquisition of PLATINUM was offset by a shift in the mix of domestic and foreign income. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization ("EBITDA") totaled $3.37 billion for fiscal year 2000, an increase of 33%, or $841 million, over fiscal year 1999. This EBITDA total is derived by adding back interest, depreciation and amortization, and income taxes into the $1.52 billion year-to-date net income prior to special charges. Fiscal Year 1999 The Company's fiscal year 1999 total contract value of $5.3 billion increased 11% over the $4.7 billion in fiscal year 1998. The growth was primarily attributable to greater contract value from product licensing fees, the continued demand for less restrictive enterprise licensing pricing options, and an emphasis placed on professional services. Unicenter TNG, a family of integrated business solutions for monitoring and administering systems management across multi-platform environments accounted for approximately 25% of the Company's overall contract value. Net revenue also increased 11%, or $460 million for the year. Professional services revenue from the Company's consulting services business and educational programs for fiscal year 1999 grew by 89%, or $136 million over fiscal year 1998, to $288 million. The growth was primarily attributable to an increase in billable hours. Maintenance, which is deferred and ratably recognized over the term of the agreement increased 1%, or $9 million in fiscal year 1999. Additional maintenance from prior year license arrangements was partially offset by the ongoing trend of site consolidations and expanding client/server revenue sold by VARs, which yield lower maintenance. Total United States and international contract value increased by 9% and 15%, respectively, for fiscal year 1999 as a result of strong acceptance of the Company's distributed software solutions. The United States further benefited from professional services growth. The strengthening of the U.S. dollar decreased international revenue by $44 million when compared to fiscal year 1998. Price changes did not have a material impact in either year. Selling, general, and administrative expenses for fiscal year 1999 increased to 31% of net revenue compared to 29% in fiscal year 1998. The increase was largely attributable to an overall increase in personnel expense. The Company is continuing its ongoing effort to expand its Global Professional ServicesTM division and worldwide sales organization. Marketing costs related to new product introductions including the Enterprise Edition and Workgroup Edition Solutions also contributed to the increase. The Enterprise Edition products are the Company's state-of-the-art mid-market solutions addressing security, network management, asset management, application development, information management, and eCommerce. The Workgroup Editions provide the same solutions as the Enterprise Editions with a focus on smaller computing environments. In fiscal year 1999, new and existing product development and enhancement expenditures increased $54 million, or 15%. Continued emphasis on adapting and enhancing products for the distributed environment, in particular Unicenter TNG, Jasmine,AE Opal,TM the Enterprise and Workgroup Edition Solutions, as well as broadening of the Company's Internet/intranet product offerings were largely responsible for the increase. Commissions and royalties were approximately 6% of total net revenue for both fiscal year 1999 and 1998. Depreciation and amortization expense decreased $24 million, or 7% in fiscal year 1999 over fiscal year 1998. The decrease was primarily due to the scheduled reduction in the amortization associated with The ASK Group, Inc., Legent Corporation, and Cheyenne Software, Inc. acquisitions, partially offset by the amortization associated with fiscal year 1999 acquisitions. For fiscal year 1999, net interest expense was $123 million, a decrease of $20 million over fiscal year 1998. Excluding the one-time charge associated with the Computer Sciences Corporation ("CSC") tender in fiscal year 1998, net interest expense in fiscal year 1999 increased $10 million over fiscal year 1998. The increase is attributable to an increase in average debt outstanding of approximately $500 million, offset by an increase to interest income related to cash proceeds from the April 1998 Senior Note issuance. Fiscal year 1999 pre-tax profit excluding the one-time charge of $1,071 million relating to the vesting of 20.25 million shares under the 1995 Plan was $2.08 billion compared to $1.87 billion in fiscal year 1998. Net income per share in fiscal year 1999 was $1.11 per share on a diluted basis. Excluding the charge, net income per share in fiscal year 1999 would have been $2.31, a 12% increase over fiscal year 1998 net income of $2.06 per share. The consolidated effective tax rate for fiscal year 1999, excluding the charge, and for fiscal year 1998 was approximately 37.5%. EBITDA totaled $2.53 billion for fiscal year 1999, an increase of 7%, or $158 million, over fiscal year 1998. This EBITDA total is derived by adding back interest, depreciation and amortization, and income taxes into the $1.30 billion year-to-date net income prior to special charges. A total of 20.25 million restricted shares were made available for grant to three key executives under the 1995 Plan approved by the stockholders at the August 1995 Annual Meeting. An initial grant of 6.75 million restricted shares

was made to the executives at inception of the 1995 Plan. In January 1996, based on the achievement of a price target for the Company's common stock, 1.35 million shares (20%) of the initial grant vested, subject to continued employment of the executives through March 31, 2000. Accordingly, the Company began accruing compensation expense associated with the 1.35 million shares over the employment period. Annual compensation expense of $7 million was charged against income for each of the years ended March 31, 1998, 1997, and 1996. Additional grants of the remaining 13.5 million shares available under the 1995 Plan were made based on the achievement of certain price targets. These additional grants and the unvested portion of the initial grant vested in May 1998 and are further subject to significant limitations on transfer during the seven years following vesting. The vesting occurred after the closing price of the Company's stock on the New York Stock Exchange exceeded $53.33 for 60 trading days within a twelve-month period. A one-time charge of $1,071 million was recorded in the first quarter of fiscal year 1999. <TABLE> <CAPTION> Selected Quarterly Information (in millions, except per share amounts) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2000 Quarterly Results June 30(1) Sept. 30 Dec. 31(2) Mar. 31(3)(4) Total --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- <S> <C> <C> <C> <C> <C> Contract value(7) ................. $ 1,222 $ 1,605 $ 1,812 $ 2,127 $ 6,766 Net revenue ....................... 1,057 1,465 1,674 1,907 6,103 Percent of annual net revenue ..... 17% 24% 28% 31% 100% Net (loss) income ................. $ (432) $ 335 $ 401 $ 392 $ 696 - Basic (loss) earnings per share .

As part of the annual budget process, management establishes higher discretionary expense levels in relation to projected revenue for the first half of the year. Historically, the Company's combined third and fourth quarter revenue has been greater than that of the first half of the year, as these two quarters coincide with clients' calendar year budget periods and the culmination of the Company's annual sales plan. This historically higher second half revenue has resulted in significantly higher profit margins since total expenses have not increased in proportion to revenue. However, past financial performance should not be considered to be a reliable indicator of future performance. The Company's products are designed to improve the productivity and efficiency of its clients' information processing resources. Accordingly, in a recessionary environment, the Company's products are often a reasonable economic alternative to customers faced with the prospect of incurring expenditures to increase their existing information processing resources. However, a general or regional slowdown in the world economy could adversely affect the Company's operations. Additionally, further deterioration of the exchange rate of foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar may continue to affect the Company's ability to increase its revenue within those markets. As the Company grows, it is increasingly dependent upon large dollar enterprise transactions with individual clients. The size and magnitude of such transactions have increased over time. There are no assurances that comparable transactions will occur in subsequent periods. The Company's future operating results may also be affected by a number of other factors, including but not limited to: a significant percentage of the Company's quarterly sales being finalized in the last few days of the period making financial forecasts especially difficult, which could create a substantial risk of variances with the actual results; the continued risks of potential litigation arising from the Year 2000 date change for computer programs; the emergence of new competitive initiatives resulting from rapid

technological advances; changes in pricing in the market; the risks associated with new product introductions as well as the uncertainty of marketplace acceptance of these new or enhanced products from either the Company or its competitors; risks associated with the entry into new markets at lower profit margins, such as professional services; the risks associated with integrating newly acquired businesses and technologies; delays in product delivery; reliance on mainframe capacity growth; the ability to recruit and retain qualified personnel; business conditions in the distributed and mainframe software and hardware markets; the strength of the Company's distribution channels; uncertainty and volatility associated with Internet and eBusiness related activities; the ability to update the Company's product offerings to conform with new governmental rules; use of software patent rights to attempt to limit competition; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates; the volatility of the international marketplace; uncertainties relative to global economic conditions; the Company's reliance on a single family of products for a material portion of its sales; the effect of new accounting pronouncements and interpretations on the Company's revenue recognition practices; the Company's ability to manage fixed and variable expense growth relative to revenue growth; and other risks described in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. With the acquisition of Sterling on March 31, 2000, and a subsequent worldwide sales reorganization in April 2000, there can be no assurances that the distractions and uncertainties caused by these events will not have a negative effect on the Company's revenue and net income during fiscal year 2001. In-Process Research and Development In the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2000, the Company acquired Sterling in a stock-for-stock exchange valued at approximately $4.1 billion. In the first quarter of fiscal year 2000, the Company acquired PLATINUM for approximately $4.3 billion in cash and assumed liabilities. There were no acquisitions involving acquired in-process research and development ("IPR&D") charges in fiscal year 1999. See Note 2 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information concerning acquisitions. Acquired IPR&D charges relate to acquisitions of software companies accounted for under the purchase method, in which a portion of the purchase price is allocated to acquired in-process technology and is expensed immediately, since the technological feasibility of the research and development projects have not yet been achieved and are believed to have no alternative future use. Independent valuations of Sterling and PLATINUM were performed and used as an aid in determining the fair value of the identifiable intangible assets and in allocating the purchase price among the acquired assets, including the portion of the purchase price attributed to IPR&D which was $150 million and $645 million for Sterling and PLATINUM, respectively. Assets were identified through on-site interviews with management and a review of data provided by the Company and discussions with the acquired companies' management concerning the acquired assets, technologies in development, costs necessary to complete the IPR&D, historical financial performance, estimates of future performance, market potential, and the assumptions underlying these estimates. The "Income Approach" was utilized for the valuation analysis of IPR&D for both Sterling and PLATINUM. This approach focuses on the income-producing capability of the asset and was obtained through review of data provided by the Company and the acquired companies and analysis of relevant market sizes, growth factors, and expected trends in technology. The steps followed in applying this approach included estimating the costs to develop the purchased in-process technology into commercially viable products, estimating the resulting net cash flows from such projects, and discounting the net cash flows back to their present values using a rate of return consistent with the relative risk levels. The ongoing development projects at Sterling at the time of the purchase were comprised primarily of application development and information management, business intelligence, network management, and storage management tools and solutions. The acquired projects included add-on features, tools and next- generation versions of COOL, VISION, EUREKA, SAMS,TM and SOLVE R product families. At the time of acquisition, it was estimated that, on average, 68% of the development effort had been completed and the remaining development effort would take approximately 14 months to complete, with a cost of approximately $9 million. The ongoing development projects at PLATINUM at the time of the purchase were comprised primarily of application development, database, and enterprise management tools, and data warehousing solutions. The acquired projects included add-on features, tools and next generation versions of DB2 Solutions,TM ProVisionTM Security, ADvantageTM application development, end-to-end data warehousing, and Internet infrastructure product families. At the time of acquisition, it was estimated that, on average, 68% of the development effort had been completed and the remaining development effort would take approximately 12 months to complete, with a cost of approximately $41 million. The resulting net cash flows from the Sterling and PLATINUM projects were based on management's estimates of product revenues, cost of goods sold, operating expenses, R&D costs, and income taxes from such projects. The revenue projections used to value the IPR&D were based on estimates of relevant market sizes and growth factors, expected trends in technology, and the nature and expected timing of new product introductions by the Company and its competitors. The rate used in discounting the net cash flows from the IPR&D approximated 20% for both Sterling and PLATINUM. These discount rates, higher than that of the

Company's cost of capital, are due to the uncertainties surrounding the successful development of IPR&D. The efforts required to develop the in-process technology of the acquired companies into commercially viable products principally relate to the completion of planning, designing, prototyping, and testing functions that are necessary to establish that the software produced will meet its design specifications, including technical performance, features, and function requirements. The Company has reviewed its projections of revenue and estimated costs of completion and has compared these projections with results through March 31, 2000. To date, in the aggregate, the projections have not varied materially from original projections. If these projects do not continue to be successfully developed, the revenue and profitability of the Company may be adversely affected in future periods. Additionally, the value of other intangible assets acquired may become impaired. Results will also be subject to uncertain market events and risks that are beyond the Company's control, such as trends in technology, government regulations, market size and growth, and product introduction by competitors. Management believes that the assumptions used in the purchased IPR&D valuation reasonably estimate the future benefits. There can be no assurance that in future periods actual results will not deviate from current estimates. Year 2000 Issue As of the date of this filing, the Company has not incurred any significant business disruptions nor product interruptions as a result of the Year 2000 date change. While no such occurrences have developed, Year 2000 issues may not become apparent as of this date, and therefore there is no assurance that the Company will not experience future disruptions. The Company has designed and tested substantially all of its recent product offerings to be Year 2000 compliant. These products have met rigorous compliance criteria and have undergone extensive review to detect any Year 2000 failures. The Company has publicly identified products that have not been and will not be updated to be Year 2000 compliant and has encouraged clients using these products to migrate to compliant versions/products. In general, these Year 2000 compliance efforts have been part of the Company's ongoing software development process. As such, incremental costs are not deemed material and have been included in product development and enhancement expenses. There can be no assurances that the Company's compliant products do not contain undetected problems associated with Year 2000 compliance. Although the Company believes that its license agreements provide it with protection against liability, the Company cannot predict whether, or to what extent, any legal claims will be brought, or whether the Company will suffer any liability as a result of adverse consequences to its customers. Additionally, the Company adopted a Millennium WatchSM plan whereby clients around the world were provided with 24-hour on-site and in-house technical support from December 27, 1999 through January 7, 2000. The Company extended the schedules of the internal administrative and facility-related staff to support the infrastructure during the Millennium Watch. The plan resulted in approximately $8 million of additional expenditures over the period. The Company has recognized the significance of the Year 2000 issue as it relates to its internal systems including IT and non-IT systems,and understands that the impact extends beyond traditional hardware and software to automated facility systems and third-party suppliers. The total cost of preparing internal systems to be Year 2000 compliant has not been and is not expected to be material to the Company's operations, liquidity, or capital resources. Total known expenditures, excluding personnel costs of existing staff, related to internal systems' Year 2000 readiness were approximately $30 million. Such expenditures commenced in 1996. Demand for certain of the Company's products was generated by customers who were replacing or upgrading computer systems to accommodate the Year 2000 date change. Following the date change, demand for some of the Company's products diminished. Liquidity and Capital Resources Cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities increased $851 million from the March 31, 1999 balance of $536 million to $1,387 million at March 31, 2000. Cash and investments associated with Sterling represented approximately $475 million of the year-end balance. Year-to-date cash generated from operations was $1,566 million, an increase of 24% from the prior year. The Company used its cash from operations primarily to fund acquisition costs and for debt reduction. The primary source of cash for the year was higher net income adjusted for non-cash charges. Other sources of cash included strong collections of outstanding accounts receivable and the Company's decision, in the fourth quarter, to assign selected existing installment accounts receivable to a third party. The Company may continue to explore the use of financing companies as a means of expediting debt reduction, mitigating interest rate risk, and reducing installment accounts receivable balances. As part of its acquisition of PLATINUM in May 1999, the Company terminated its revolving credit lines and replaced them with $4.5 billion of committed bank financing. This financing consisted of a $1.5 billion 364-day revolving credit facility, a $1 billion four-year revolving credit facility and a $2 billion four-year term loan. Borrowings on these facilities for fiscal year 2000 totaled $3.620 billion and were used to purchase the outstanding shares of PLATINUM and fund related shut-down costs. The Company repaid $425 million of this amount

during the year. At March 31, 2000, $3.195 billion remained outstanding at various interest rates. Interest is determined based on a bank facility ratings grid which applies a margin to the prevailing London InterBank Offered Rate ("LIBOR"). In May 2000, the Company renewed the 364-day revolver, for a total of $4.3 billion in committed bank facilities. The Company also utilizes other financial markets in order to maintain its broad sources of liquidity. In fiscal year 1999, the Company issued an aggregate of $1.75 billion of unsecured Senior Notes. Amounts borrowed, rates and maturities for each issue were $575 million at 6 1/4% due April 15, 2003, $825 million at 6 3/8% due April 15, 2005, and $350 million at 6 1/2% due April 15, 2008. $256 million also remains outstanding under the Company's 6.77% Senior Notes, a private placement with final maturity in 2003. In addition, the Company maintains an 85 million pound sterling denominated credit facility established to finance construction of its European World Headquarters at Ditton Park in the United Kingdom. Approximately U.S. $130 million was outstanding under this facility at March 31, 2000. Upon maturity in June 2000, the Company anticipates the facility will be converted into a long-term mortgage for the property. In the first quarter of fiscal year 2001, the Company also expects to implement a commercial paper program as a means of reducing its borrowing costs and establishing a presence in a new liquidity market. Unsecured and uncommitted multicurrency lines of credit are available to meet any short-term working capital needs for subsidiaries operating outside the U.S. These lines total U.S. $50 million, of which $14 million was drawn at March 31, 2000. Debt ratings for the Company's senior unsecured notes and its bank credit facilities are BBB+ and Baa1 from Standard & Poor's and Moody's Investor Services, respectively. The Company has also received A2 and P2 ratings from Standard & Poor's and Moody's Investor Services, respectively, for its anticipated commercial paper program. Peak borrowings under all debt facilities during fiscal year 2000 totaled approximately $5.7 billion with a weighted average interest rate of 6.6%. To date, the Company has purchased approximately 150 million shares under its various open market Common Stock repurchase programs. The remaining number of shares authorized for repurchase is approximately 50 million. In addition to expansion efforts at its U.S. headquarters in Islandia, New York, capital resource requirements at March 31, 2000 consisted of lease obligations for office space, computer equipment, mortgage or loan obligations and amounts due as a result of product and Company acquisitions. Refer to Notes 6 and 7 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for details concerning commitments. Additionally, the Company may be required to make tax payments of approximately $80 million related to the settlement and the return to the Company of 4.5 million shares of its common stock associated with the 1995 Plan. See Note 7 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information. It is expected that existing cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities, the availability of borrowings under credit lines, and cash provided from operations will be sufficient to meet ongoing cash requirements. Item 7(a). Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk Interest Rate Risk The Company's exposure to market risk for changes in interest rates relates primarily to the Company's investment portfolio, debt, and installment accounts receivable. The Company has a prescribed methodology whereby it invests its excess cash in debt instruments of government agencies and high quality corporate issuers (generally Standard & Poor's single "A" rating and higher). To mitigate risk, many of the securities have a maturity date within one year, and holdings of any one issuer excluding the U.S. Government do not exceed 10%. Periodically, the portfolio is reviewed and adjusted if the credit rating of a security held has deteriorated. The Company does not utilize derivative financial instruments. The Company maintains a blend of both fixed and floating rate debt instruments. At March 31, 2000, the Company's total outstanding debt approximated $5.4 billion. Of this amount, approximately $2.1 billion was comprised of fixed rate obligations; the remaining $3.3 billion was floating rate debt. If market rates decline, the Company could be required to make payments on the fixed rate debt that would exceed those based on current market rates. Each 25 basis point decrease in interest rates would have an associated annual opportunity cost of approximately $5 million. Each 25 basis point increase or decrease in interest rates would have an approximately $8 million annual effect on variable rate debt interest based upon the balances of such debt at March 31, 2000. The Company offers financing arrangements with installment payment terms in connection with its software solution sales. The aggregate contract value includes an imputed interest element, which can vary with the interest rate environment. Each 25 basis point increase in interest rates would have an associated annual opportunity cost of approximately $15 million. Foreign Currency Exchange Risk The Company conducts business on a worldwide basis through subsidiaries in 44 countries. The Company is therefore exposed to movement in currency exchange rates. As part of its risk management strategy and consistent with prior years, the Company did not enter into any foreign exchange derivative transactions. In

addition, the Company manages its level of exposure by denominating international sales and payment of related expenses in the local currency of its subsidiaries. A 1% decline in all foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar would have an insignificant effect on the Company's net income. Equity Price Risk The Company has a minimal investment in marketable equity securities of publicly-traded companies. At March 31, 2000, these investments were considered available-for-sale with any unrealized gains or losses deferred as a component of stockholders' equity. It is not customary for the Company to make investments in equity securities as part of its investment strategy. Item 8.

(b) Reports on Form 8-K. None. (c) Exhibits: See Index to Exhibits. (d) Financial Statement Schedules: The response to this portion of Item 14 is submitted as a separate section of this report. For the purposes of complying with the amendments to the rules governing Form S-8 (effective July 13, 1990) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes as set forth in the following paragraph, which undertaking shall be incorporated by reference into Registrant's Registration Statements on Form S-8 Nos. 333-32942 (filed March 21, 2000), 333-31284 (filed February 28, 2000), 333-83147 (filed July 19, 1999), 333-80883 (filed June 17, 1999), 333-79727 (filed June 1, 1999), 333-62055 (filed August 21, 1998), 333-19071 (filed December 31, 1996), 33-64377 (filed November 17, 1995), 33-53915 (filed May 31, 1994), 33-53572 (filed October 22, 1992), 33-34607 (filed April 27, 1990), 33-18322 (filed December 4, 1987), 33-20797 (filed December 19, 1988), 2-92355 (filed July 23, 1984), 2-87495 (filed October 28, 1983), and 2-79751 (filed October 6, 1982). Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers, and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933 and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit, or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer, or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act, and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

COMPUTER ASSOCIATES INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Note 1 -- Significant Accounting Policies Description of Business: Computer Associates International, Inc. and subsidiaries (the "Company") designs, develops, markets, licenses, and supports a wide range of integrated computer software solutions. Principles of Consolidation: Significant intercompany items and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Basis of Revenue Recognition: Product license fee revenue is recognized after acceptance by the client, delivery of the product, and when the collection of the resulting receivables is reasonably assured. Maintenance revenue, whether bundled with product license or priced separately, is recognized ratably over the maintenance period. When offered separately from license agreements, maintenance agreements with clients are typically one year in duration, with associated deferred maintenance reflected as an obligation. The Company experienced maintenance renewal rates on such contracts in excess of 85%. Maintenance when bundled with a license term is either separately defined and renewable annually at the option of the client or is deferred based upon renewal rates. License arrangements generally provide the customer with extended payment terms. If, during the original payment term, the customer purchases additional products valued in excess of the original arrangement, all licenses are aggregated into one arrangement and reflected as contract value. Accounts receivable resulting from product sales with extended payment terms are discounted to present value. The amounts of the discount credited to revenue for the years ended March 31, 2000, 1999, 1998 were $529 million, $408 million, and $356 million, respectively. Professional services revenues are derived from the Company's consulting services business and educational programs. These revenues are comprised of both time and material contracts and to a lesser extent fixed-price contracts. Time and material contract revenues are recognized as services are performed. Fixed price contract revenue are recognized based on the percentage-of-completion method. Marketable Securities: The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company has evaluated its investment policies consistent with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 115, "Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity Securities," and determined that all of its investment securities are to be classified as available-for-sale. Available-for-sale securities are carried at fair value, with the unrealized gains and losses reported in Stockholders' Equity under the caption "Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss)." The amortized cost of debt securities is adjusted for amortization of premiums and accretion of discounts to maturity. Such amortization is included in interest income. Realized gains and losses and declines in value judged to be other-than-temporary on available-for-sale securities are included in selling, general, and administrative expenses. The cost of securities sold is based on the specific identification method. Interest and dividends on securities classified as available-for-sale are included in interest income. Concentration of Credit Risk: Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentration of credit risk consist primarily of marketable securities and accounts receivable. The Company's marketable securities consist primarily of high quality securities with limited exposure to any single instrument. The Company's accounts receivable balances have limited exposure to concentration of credit risk due to the diverse client base and geographic areas covered by operations. Fair Value of Financial Instruments: SFAS No. 107, "Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments," defines the fair value of a financial instrument as the amount at which the instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties. The fair value of the Company's cash and cash equivalents, trade and installment accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses, and deferred maintenance amounts approximate their carrying value. See Note 6 for the fair value related to the Company's debt. Property and Equipment: Land, buildings, equipment, furniture, and improvements are stated at cost. Depreciation and amortization are provided over the estimated useful lives of the assets by the straight-line method. Building and improvements are generally estimated to have 30-40 year lives and the remaining property and equipment are estimated to have 5-7 year lives. Intangibles: Excess of cost over net assets acquired is being amortized by the straight-line method over the expected period of benefit, between 10 and 20 years. Unamortized goodwill at March 31, 2000 and 1999 was $5,572 million and $1,623 million, respectively. Costs of purchased software, acquired rights to market software products, and software development costs (costs incurred after development of a working model or a detailed program design) are capitalized and amortized by the straight-line method over 5-7 years, commencing with product release. Unamortized capitalized development costs included in other assets at March 31, 2000 and 1999 were $87 million and $72 million, respectively. Amortization of capitalized development costs was $21 million, $18 million, and

COMPUTER ASSOCIATES INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- Continued Note 1 - Significant Accounting Policies (Continued) $15 million for the fiscal years ended March 31, 2000, 1999, and 1998, respectively. The carrying values of intangible assets and other long-lived assets, including investments, are reviewed on a regular basis for the existence of facts or circumstances, both internally and externally, that may suggest impairment. The Company performs undiscounted cash flow analyses to determine if an impairment exists. If an impairment is determined to exist, any related impairment loss is calculated based on fair value. Net Income per Share: Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing net income by the sum of the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period plus the assumed exercise of all dilutive securities, such as stock options. <TABLE> <CAPTION> Year Ended March 31, 2000 1999 1998 ---- ---- ---- (in millions, except per share amounts) <S> <C> <C> <C> Net income ....................................... $ 696 $ 626 $1,169 Diluted Earnings Per Share* Weighted-average shares outstanding and common share equivalents ..................... 557 562 566 ---- ---- ---- Diluted Earnings Per Share ....................... $1.25 $1.11 $ 2.06 ---- ---- ---- Diluted Share Computation: Weighted-average common shares outstanding ... 539 545 546 Weighted-average stock options outstanding,net 18 17 20 ---- ---- ---- Weighted-average shares outstanding and common share equivalents ..................... 557 562 566 ==== ==== ==== <FN> *Share and per share amounts adjusted to reflect the three-for-two stock split effective November 5, 1997. </FN> </TABLE> Statement of Cash Flows: Interest payments for the years ended March 31, 2000, 1999, and 1998 were $319 million, $107 million, and $157 million, respectively. Income taxes paid for these fiscal years were $368 million, $280 million, and $470 million, respectively. Translation of Foreign Currencies: In translating financial statements of foreign subsidiaries, all assets, and liabilities are translated using the exchange rate in effect at the balance sheet date. All revenue, costs, and expenses are translated using an average exchange rate. Net income includes exchange losses of approximately $3 million in 2000, $7 million in 1999, and $9 million in 1998. Use of Estimates: The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Although these estimates are based on management's knowledge of current events and actions it may undertake in the future, they may ultimately differ from actual results. Reclassifications: Certain prior years' balances have been reclassified to conform with the current year's presentation. Comprehensive Income: SFAS No. 130 establishes rules for reporting and displaying comprehensive income and its components. Comprehensive income includes foreign currency translation adjustments and unrealized gains or losses on the Company's available-for-sale securities. The components of comprehensive income, net of applicable tax, for the years ended March 31, 2000, 1999, and 1998, are included in the Statements of Stockholders' Equity. New Accounting Pronouncements Software Revenue Recognition: In October 1997, the Accounting Standards Executive Committee ("AcSEC") issued Statement of Position ("SOP") 97-2 "Software Revenue Recognition," as amended in 1998 by SOP 98-4 and further

COMPUTER ASSOCIATES INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- Continued Note 1 -- Significant Accounting Policies (Continued) amended more recently by SOP 98-9, which is effective for transactions entered into in fiscal years beginning after March 15, 1999. These SOPs provide guidance on applying generally accepted accounting principles in recognizing revenue on software transactions, requiring deferral of part or all of the revenue related to a specific contract depending on the existence of vendor-specific objective evidence and the ability to allocate the total contract value to all elements within the contract. Effective for the quarter ending June 30, 1999, the Company implemented the guidelines of these SOPs. Based on the current interpretation, there was no material impact on the overall maintenance deferral; however, as additional implementation guidelines become available, there may be unanticipated changes in the Company's revenue recognition practices including, but not limited to, changes in the period over which revenue is recognized up to and including recognition of revenue over the contract term. The future implementation guidelines and interpretations may also require the Company to further change its business practices in order to continue to recognize a substantial portion of its software revenue when the product is delivered. These changes may extend sales cycles, increase administrative costs, or otherwise adversely affect existing operations and results of operations. In December 1999, the SEC issued Staff Accounting Bulletin ("SAB") No. 101. This SAB provides further guidance on revenue recognition. The Company is currently in the process of evaluating the impact of SAB 101 which is effective for the quarter ended June 30, 2000 to ensure it is in compliance. As additional guidance becomes available, the Company may be required to change the period in which revenue is recognized, which may have a negative impact on the Company's prospective reported revenue. Note 2 -- Acquisitions The Company completed several acquisitions during fiscal years 2000 and 1999 that were accounted for using the purchase method of accounting. The allocation of purchase price is based upon estimates which may be revised within one year of acquisition as additional information becomes available. It is anticipated that the final allocation of purchase price will not differ materially from the preliminary allocation. On March 31, 2000, the Company acquired Sterling Software, Inc. ("Sterling") and merged one of its wholly owned subsidiaries into Sterling, at which time Sterling became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. The shareholders of Sterling received 0.5634 shares of the Company's common stock for each share of Sterling common stock. The Company issued approximately 46.8 million shares of common stock with an approximate fair value of $3.3 billion. In addition, the Company assumed options to acquire common stock and incurred acquisition related liabilities of approximately $290 million and $473 million, respectively, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $4.1 billion. Sterling was a developer and provider of systems management, business intelligence, and application development software products and services, as well as a supplier of specialized information technology services for sectors of the federal government. On May 28, 1999, the Company acquired the common stock and the options to acquire the common stock of PLATINUM technology International, inc. ("PLATINUM") in a cash transaction of approximately $3.6 billion, which was paid from drawings under the Company's $4.5 billion credit agreements. In addition, the Company assumed debt and incurred acquisition-related liabilities of approximately $200 million and $451 million, respectively, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $4.3 billion. PLATINUM was engaged in providing software products in the areas of database management, eCommerce, application infrastructure management, decision support, data warehousing, and knowledge management, as well as year 2000 reengineering and other consulting services. The purchase price for the Sterling and PLATINUM acquisitions have been allocated to assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their fair values at the dates of acquisition as follows: <TABLE> <CAPTION> Sterling PLATINUM -------- -------- (in millions) <S> <C> <C> Cash and cash equivalents ......... $ 476 $ 57 Deferred income taxes, net ........

COMPUTER ASSOCIATES INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- Continued Note 2 -- Acquisitions (Continued) An independent analysis using future product cash flow forecasts and percentage of product development completion assumptions was utilized to value the in-process research and development amounts which had not reached the working model stage and had no alternative future use. Accordingly, $645 million and $150 million were expensed as non-recurring charges in fiscal year 2000 related to the PLATINUM and Sterling acquisitions, respectively. The following table reflects unaudited pro-forma combined results of the operations of the Company, PLATINUM, and Sterling on the basis that the acquisitions had taken place at the beginning of the fiscal year for all periods presented: <TABLE> <CAPTION> Year Ended March 31, 2000 1999 ---- ---- (in millions, except per share amounts) <S> <C> <C> Contract value ..................................... $ 7,745 $ 6,961 Net revenue ........................................ 7,082 6,374 Net loss ...........................................

All special charges, net of taxes, including the purchased research and development charge for PLATINUM and Sterling in fiscal year 2000 of $645 and $150 million, respectively, the non-cash charge of $32 million related to CHS Electronics, Inc. ("CHS") recorded in fiscal year 2000, the one-time charge of $675 million relating to the 1995 Key Employee Stock Ownership Plan (the "1995 Plan") recorded in fiscal year 1999, and all special charges recorded by PLATINUM and Sterling in fiscal years 2000 and 1999 have been excluded from all periods presented: <TABLE> <CAPTION> Year Ended March 31, 2000 1999 ---- ---- (in millions, except per share amounts) <S> <C> <C> Contract value ..................................... $7,745 $6,961 Net revenue ........................................ 7,082 6,374 Net income ......................................... 1,412 893 Basic earnings per share ........................... $ 2.41 $ 1.51 Shares used in computation ......................... 586 592 Diluted earnings per share ......................... $ 2.34 $ 1.47 Shares used in computation ......................... 604 609 </TABLE> In management's opinion, the pro-forma combined results of operations are not indicative of the actual results that would have occurred had the acquisitions been consummated at the beginning of fiscal year 2000 or of future operations of the combined entities under the ownership and operation of the Company. On March 9, 1999, the Company acquired more than 98% of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of Computer Management Sciences, Inc. ("CMSI") and on March 19, 1999, merged CMSI into one of its wholly owned subsidiaries. The aggregate purchase price of approximately $400 million was funded from drawings under the Company's credit agreements and cash from operations. CMSI was engaged in providing custom developed information technology solutions to a Fortune 1000 client base. During fiscal years 2000 and 1999, the Company acquired several other consulting businesses and product technologies in addition to the ones described above which, either individually or collectively, are not material to the financial statements taken as a whole. The excess of cost over net assets acquired is being amortized on a straight-line basis over the expected period to be benefited. The Consolidated Condensed Statements of Operations reflect the results of operations of the companies since the effective dates of the purchases.

COMPUTER ASSOCIATES INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- Continued Note 2 -- Acquisitions (Continued) At March 31, 1999, liabilities related to acquisitions totaled $134 million. During the current fiscal year, the Company established additional reserves of $451 million, $473 million, and $12 million related to PLATINUM, Sterling, and other acquisitions, respectively. Reductions totaling $302 million were made against these reserves, including compensation-related payments of $133 million, duplicate facility and other settlements of $96 million, and goodwill adjustments of $73 million. At March 31, 2000, the Company estimated future liabilities in connection with acquisitions to be $768 million. These included compensation-related liabilities ($392 million) and other acquisition-related expenditures including duplicate facilities ($376 million). This balance was included in the "Accrued expenses and other liabilities" line item on the accompanying Consolidated Balance Sheet. Note 3 -- Investments The following is a summary of marketable securities classified as "available-for-sale" securities as required by SFAS 115: <TABLE> <CAPTION> Year Ended March 31, 2000 1999 ---- ---- (in millions) <S> <C> <C> Debt/Equity Securities: Cost ....................... $ 80 $124 Gross unrealized gains ..... - 13 ---- ---- Estimated fair value ....... $ 80 $137 ==== ==== </TABLE> For the year ended March 31, 2000, the Company recorded an approximate $50 million loss within selling, general, and administrative expenses due to an other than temporary decline in the fair value of an investment in CHS. For the years ended March 31, 1999 and 1998, net realized gains were $1 million and $3 million, respectively. The amortized cost and estimated fair value based on published closing prices of securities at March 31, 2000, by contractual maturity, are shown below. Expected maturities may differ from contractual maturities because the issuers of the securities may have the right to prepay obligations without prepayment penalties. <TABLE> <CAPTION> March 31, 2000 Estimated Fair Cost Value ---- ----- Available-for-Sale: (in millions) <S> <C> <C> Due in one year or less ....... $26 $26 Due in one through three years 32 32 Due in three through five years 19 19 Due after five years .......... 3 3 --- --- $80 $80 === === </TABLE> Note 4 -- Segment and Geographic Information The Company is principally engaged in the design, development, marketing, licensing, and support of integrated computer software products operating on a diverse range of hardware platforms and operating systems.

(1,042) (926) ----- ----- $ 3,812 $ 2,844 ===== ===== </TABLE> Installment accounts receivable represent amounts collectible on long-term financing arrangements and include fees for product licenses, upgrades, maintenance, and professional services contracts. Installment receivables are generally financed over three to six years and are recorded net of unamortized discounts, deferred maintenance fees, and allowances for uncollectible amounts. As of March 31, 2000, on a cumulative basis, approximately 36%, 55%, 70%, 85%, and 90% of trade and installment accounts receivable come due within fiscal years ended 2001 through 2005, respectively. The provisions for uncollectible amounts for the years ended March 31, 2000, 1999, and 1998 were $77 million, $75 million, and $71 million, respectively, and were included in the "Selling, general, and administrative" line item on the accompanying Consolidated Statement of Operations. Note 6 --Debt At March 31, 1999, the Company had $325 million in short-term debt outstanding under its $1.5 billion five-year and $1.1 billion 364-day credit facilities. On May 26, 1999, the Company terminated these facilities and obtained $4.5 billion of committed bank financing for the acquisition of PLATINUM. The facilities consisted of a $1.5 billion 364-day revolver, a $1.0 billion four-year revolver, and a $2.0 billion four-year term loan. The facilities provide for interest based upon the prevailing London InterBank Offered Rate ("LIBOR") subject to a margin determined by a bank facility ratings grid. The Company is also required to maintain certain financial ratios. The amount drawn under these facilities at March 31, 2000 was $3.195 billion and the effective interest rate on this debt was approximately 7.02%. In May 2000, the Company renewed the 364-day revolver for $1.3 billion, for a total of $4.3 billion in committed bank facilities. The Company also maintains an 85 million pound sterling revolver that was used to finance construction of the Company's European Headquarters at Ditton Park, Slough, in the United Kingdom. The facility requires the Company to maintain certain financial conditions, and borrowing costs and fees are based upon achievement of certain financial ratios. The credit facility's interest is calculated at LIBOR for pound sterling plus a margin. At March 31, 2000 and 1999, 79 million pound sterling (approximately U.S. $130 million) and 49 million pound sterling (approximately U.S. $81 million) were outstanding at interest rates of 6.3% and 6.1%, respectively. On February 22, 2000, the maturity of this facility was extended to June 2000 while the Company completes its refinance into a long-term mortgage for the property. At March 31, 2000 and March 31, 1999, the Company had the following unsecured, fixed-rate interest Senior Note obligations outstanding: <TABLE> <CAPTION> March 31, 2000 1999 ---- ---- (in millions) <S> <C> <C> 6.77% Senior Notes due 2003 .................................. $256 $320 6.25% Senior Notes due 2003 .................................. $575 $575 6.375% Senior Notes due 2005 ................................. $825 $825 6.5% Senior Notes due 2008 ................................... $350 $350 </TABLE> Debt ratings for the Company's senior unsecured notes and bank credit facilities are Baa1 and BBB+ from Moody's Investment Services and Standard & Poor's, respectively.

COMPUTER ASSOCIATES INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- Continued Note 6 --Debt (Continued) Unsecured and uncommitted multicurrency credit facilities of $50 million are also available to meet any short-term working capital requirements and can be drawn upon, up to a predefined limit, by most subsidiaries. Under these multicurrency facilities, approximately $14 million and $3 million were drawn at March 31, 2000 and 1999, respectively. At March 31, 2000 and 1999, the Company had various other fixed rate debt obligations outstanding. These obligations carried annual interest rates ranging from 6% to 7 1/2% and approximated $35 and $52 million, respectively. The Company conducts an ongoing review of its capital structure and debt obligations as part of its risk management strategy. To date, the Company has not entered into any form of derivative transactions related to its debt instruments. At March 31, 2000, the fair value of the Company's debt was approximately $100 million less than its carrying value. The maturities of outstanding debt for the next five fiscal years are as follows: 2001-$919 million, 2002-$331 million, 2003-$2,310 million, 2004-$640 million, and 2005-$826 million. Interest expense for the years ended March 31, 2000, 1999, and 1998 was $352 million, $154 million, and $147 million, respectively. Note 7 -- Commitments and Contingencies The Company leases real estate and certain data processing and other equipment with lease terms expiring through 2023. The leases are operating leases and generally provide for renewal options and additional rentals based on escalations in operating expenses and real estate taxes. The Company has no material capital leases. The Company has completed construction of a facility in the United Kingdom with all costs paid as of March 31, 2000. Rental expense under operating leases for the years ended March 31, 2000, 1999, and 1998, was $205 million, $135 million, and $140 million, respectively. Future minimum lease payments are: 2001-$181 million; 2002-$148 million; 2003-$116 million; 2004-$87 million; 2005-$74 million; and thereafter-$242 million. The Company and certain of its officers are defendants in a number of shareholder class action lawsuits alleging that a class consisting of all persons who purchased the Company's stock during the period January 20, 1998 until July 22, 1998 were harmed by misleading statements, representations, and omissions regarding the Company's future financial performance. These cases have been consolidated into a single action (the "Shareholder Action") in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York ("New York Federal Court"). The New York Federal Court has denied the defendants' motion to dismiss the Shareholder Action, and the parties currently are engaged in discovery. Although the ultimate outcome and liability, if any, cannot be determined, management, after consultation and review with counsel, believes that the facts in the Shareholder Action do not support the plaintiffs' claims and that the Company and its officers and directors have meritorious defenses. In addition, three derivative actions alleging misleading statements and omissions similar to those alleged in the Shareholder Action were brought in the New York Federal Court on behalf of the Company against a majority of the Company's directors. An additional derivative action on behalf of the Company, alleging that the Company issued 14.25 million more shares than were authorized under the 1995 Key Employee Stock Ownership Plan (the "1995 Plan"), also was filed in the New York Federal Court. These derivative actions have been consolidated into a single action (the "Derivative Action") in the New York Federal Court. The Derivative Action has been stayed. Lastly, a derivative action on behalf of the Company was filed in the Chancery Court in Delaware (the "Delaware Action") alleging that 9.5 million more shares were issued to the three 1995 Plan participants than were authorized under the 1995 Plan. The Company and its directors who are parties to the Derivative Action and the Delaware Action have announced that an agreement has been reached to settle the Delaware Action and the Derivative Action. Under the terms of the proposed settlement, which is subject to the approval of the Delaware Court of Chancery and dismissal of related claims by the New York Federal Court, the 1995 Plan participants will return 4.5 million shares of Computer Associates stock to the Company, at which time the Company will record a non-cash gain. The Company, various subsidiaries and certain current and former officers have been named as defendants in various claims and lawsuits arising in the normal course of business. The Company believes that the facts do not support the plaintiffs' claims and intends to vigorously contest each of them.

Note 9 -- Stock Plans The Company has a 1981 Incentive Stock Option Plan (the "1981 Plan") pursuant to which options to purchase up to 27 million shares of Common Stock of the Company were available for grant to employees (including officers of the Company). The 1981 Plan expired on October 23, 1991. Therefore, from and after that date no new options can be granted under the 1981 Plan. Pursuant to the 1981 Plan, the exercise price could not be less than the Fair Market Value ("FMV") of each share at the date of grant. Options granted thereunder may be exercised in annual increments commencing one year after the date of grant and become fully exercisable after the expiration of five years. All options expire ten years from date of grant unless otherwise terminated. All of the 283,000 options which are outstanding under the 1981 Plan were exercisable at March 31, 2000 at $2.22-$2.26 per share. The Company has a 1987 Non-Statutory Stock Option Plan (the "1987 Plan") pursuant to which options to purchase up to 17 million shares of Common Stock of the Company may be granted to select officers and key employees of the Company. Pursuant to the 1987 Plan, the exercise price shall not be less than the FMV of each share at the date of the grant. The option period shall not exceed 12 years. Each option may be exercised only in accordance with a vesting schedule established by the Stock Option and Compensation Committee. As of March 31, 2000, 155,375 shares of the Company's Common Stock were available for future grants. All of the 6.5 million options which are outstanding under the 1987 Plan were exercisable as of that date. These options are exercisable at $2.22-$4.26 per share. The Company's 1991 Stock Incentive Plan (the "1991 Plan") provides that stock appreciation rights and/or options, both qualified and non-statutory, to purchase up to 67.5 million shares of Common Stock of the Company may be granted to employees (including officers of the Company) under conditions similar to the 1981 Plan. As of March 31, 2000, no stock appreciation rights have been granted under this plan and 59.9 million options have been granted. At March 31, 2000, 12.0 million of the 33.9 million options which are outstanding under the 1991 Plan were exercisable. These options are exercisable at $4.26-$51.69 per share.

Pursuant to the 1993 Plan, the exercise price shall be the FMV of the shares covered by the option at the date of grant. The option period shall not exceed ten years, and each option may be exercised in whole or in part on the first anniversary date of its grant. As of March 31, 2000, 195,750 options have been granted under this plan. 115,000 of the 149,000 options which are outstanding under the 1993 Plan were exercisable as of that date.

COMPUTER ASSOCIATES INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- Continued Note 9 -- Stock Plans (Continued) The weighted-average fair value at date of grant for options granted in 2000, 1999, and 1998 were $27.98, $19.04, and $20.44, respectively. The fair value of each option grant is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The following weighted average assumptions were used for option grants in 2000, 1999, and 1998, respectively; dividend yields of .15%, .22%, and .22%; expected volatility factors of .50; risk-free interest rates of 5.6%, 4.5%, and 6.2% and an expected life of six years. The compensation expense and pro-forma net income may not be indicative of amounts to be included in future periods. Under the 1998 Incentive Award Plan (the "1998 Plan"), a total of four million Phantom Shares, as defined in the 1998 Plan, are available for grant to certain of the Company's employees from time to time through March 31, 2008. As of March 31, 2000 there were approximately 1.8 million Phantom Shares outstanding. Each Phantom Share is equivalent to one share of the Company's common stock. Vesting is contingent upon attainment of specific criteria, including an annual Target Closing Price ("Price") for the Company's common stock and the participant's continued employment. The Price is based on the average closing price of the Company's common stock on the New York Stock Exchange for the ten days up to and including March 31st of each fiscal year. The Price was met on March 31, 2000 and the Company began to recognize a non-cash charge over the employment period (approximately $3 million for the year ended March 2000). If additional tranches vest, the annual non-cash charge will increase. Since the price of the Phantom Shares is undetermined, the incremental expense is unknown. During fiscal year 2000, the Company established the Year 2000 Employee Stock Purchase Plan, (the "Purchase Plan") for all eligible employees. Under the terms of the Purchase Plan, employees may elect to withhold between 1% and 25% of their base pay through regular payroll deductions, subject to Internal Revenue Code limitations. Shares of the Company's common stock may be purchased at six-month intervals at 85% of the lower of the FMV on the first or the last day of each six-month period. The Purchase Plan became effective January 1, 2000 and the first purchase of shares will be made on June 30, 2000. At March 31, 2000, 30 million shares were reserved for future issuance. All references to the number of shares and share prices have been adjusted to reflect a three-for-two stock split effective November 5, 1997. Note 10 -- Profit Sharing Plan The Company maintains a profit sharing plan, the Computer Associates Savings Harvest Plan ("CASH Plan"), for the benefit of employees of the Company. The CASH Plan is intended to be a qualified plan under Section 401(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (the "Code") and contains a qualified cash or deferred arrangement as described under Section 401(k) of the Code. Pursuant to the CASH Plan, eligible participants may elect to contribute a percentage of their annual gross salary. Matching contributions to the CASH Plan for the year ended March 31, 2000 were approximately $10 million and for each of the years ended March 31, 1999 and 1998 were approximately $6 million and $5 million, respectively. In addition, the Company may make discretionary contributions to the CASH Plan. Discretionary contributions to the CASH Plan for the year ended March 31, 2000 were approximately $25 million, and for each of the years ended March 31, 1999 and 1998 approximated $20 million and $17 million, respectively. Note 11 -- Rights Plan Each outstanding share of the Company's Common Stock carries a stock purchase right issued under the Company's Rights Agreement, dated June 18, 1991 and amended May 17, 1995 (the "Rights Agreement"). Under certain circumstances, each right may be exercised to purchase one one-thousandth of a share of Series One Junior Participating Preferred Stock, Class A, for $300. Under certain circumstances, following (i) the acquisition of 20% or more of the Company's outstanding Common Stock by an Acquiring Person (as defined in the Rights Agreement), (ii) the commencement of a tender offer or exchange offer which would result in a person or group owning 20% or more of the Company's outstanding common stock, or (iii) the determination by the Company's Board of Directors and a majority of the Disinterested Directors (as defined in the Rights Agreement) that a 15% stockholder is an Adverse Person (as defined in the Rights Agreement), each right (other than rights held by an Acquiring Person or Adverse Person) may be exercised to purchase common stock of the Company or a successor company with a market value of twice the $300 exercise price. The rights, which are redeemable by the Company at one cent per right, expire in June 2001.

Section 4.3 Fees and Other Charges. (a) The Borrower will pay a fee on all outstanding Letters of Credit for each day at a per annum rate equal to the Eurodollar Rate Margin then in effect with respect to Eurodollar Rate Loans hereunder times the aggregate undrawn face amounts of such Letters of Credit on such day. Such fee shall be payable to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Revolving Banks, quarterly in arrears on each L/C Fee Payment Date after the issuance date. In addition, the Borrower shall pay to the relevant Issuing Bank for its own account a fronting fee of 0.25% per annum on the undrawn and unexpired amount of each Letter of Credit, payable quarterly in arrears on each L/C Fee Payment Date after the Issuance Date.

20 (b) In addition to the foregoing fees, the Borrower shall pay or reimburse the relevant Issuing Bank for such normal and customary costs and expenses as are incurred or charged by such Issuing Bank in issuing, negotiating, effecting payment under, amending or otherwise administering any Letter of Credit. Section 4.4 L/C Participations. (a) Each Issuing Bank irrevocably agrees to grant and hereby grants to each L/C Participant, and, to induce each Issuing Bank to issue Letters of Credit hereunder, each L/C Participant irrevocably agrees to accept and purchase and hereby accepts and purchases from each Issuing Bank, on the terms and conditions hereinafter stated, for such L/C Participant's own account and risk an undivided interest equal to such L/C Participant's Revolving Percentage in such Issuing Bank's obligations and rights under each Letter of Credit issued hereunder and the amount of each draft paid by such Issuing Bank thereunder. Each L/C Participant unconditionally and irrevocably agrees with each Issuing Bank that, if a draft is paid under any Letter of Credit for which such Issuing Bank is not reimbursed in full by the Borrower in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, such L/C Participant shall pay to such Issuing Bank upon demand at such Issuing Bank's address for notices specified herein an amount equal to such L/C Participant's Revolving Percentage of the amount of such draft, or any part thereof, that is not so reimbursed. (b) If any amount required to be paid by any L/C Participant to an Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 4.4(a) in respect of any unreimbursed portion of any payment made by such Issuing Bank under any Letter of Credit is paid to such Issuing Bank within three Banking Days after the date such payment is due, such L/C Participant shall pay to the Issuing Bank on demand an amount equal to the product of (i) such amount, times (ii) the daily average Federal Funds Rate during the period from and including the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to such Issuing Bank, times (iii) a fraction the numerator of which is the number of days that elapse during such period and the denominator of which is 360. If any such amount required to be paid by any L/C Participant pursuant to Section 4.4(a) is not made available to the relevant Issuing Bank by such L/C Participant within three Banking Days after the date such payment is due, such Issuing Bank shall be entitled to recover from such L/C Participant, on demand, such amount with interest thereon calculated from such due date at the rate per annum applicable to Base Rate Loans hereunder. A certificate of the relevant Issuing Bank submitted to any L/C Participant with respect to any amounts owing under this Section shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. (c) Whenever, at any time after an Issuing Bank has made payment under any Letter of Credit and has received from any L/C Participant its pro rata share of such payment in accordance with Section 4.4(a), such Issuing Bank receives any payment related to such Letter of Credit (whether directly from the Borrower or otherwise, including proceeds of collateral applied thereto by such Issuing Bank), or any payment of interest on account thereof, such Issuing Bank will distribute to such L/C Participant its pro rata share thereof; provided, however, that in the event that any such payment received by such Issuing Bank shall be required to be returned by such Issuing Bank, such L/C Participant shall return to such Issuing Bank the portion thereof previously distributed by such Issuing Bank to it.

21 Section 4.5 Reimbursement Obligation of the Borrower. The Borrower agrees to reimburse each Issuing Bank on each date on which such Issuing Bank notifies the Borrower (or on the immediately following Banking Day if the Issuing Bank notifies the Borrower after 11:00 A.M., New York City time) of the date and amount of a draft presented under any Letter of Credit issued and paid by such Issuing Bank (a "Reimbursement Notice") for the amount of (a) such draft so paid and (b) any taxes, fees, charges or other costs or expenses incurred by such Issuing Bank in connection with such payment (the amounts described in the foregoing clauses (a) and (b) in respect of any drawing, collectively, the "Payment Amount"). Each such payment shall be made to such Issuing Bank at its address for notices specified herein in lawful money of the United States of America and in immediately available funds. Interest shall be payable on each Payment Amount from the date of the applicable drawing until payment in full at the rate set forth in (i) until the third Banking Day following the date of the applicable drawing, Section 7.8(b) and (ii) thereafter, Section 7.8(c). Each drawing under any Letter of Credit shall (unless (x) an event of the type described in clause (f) or (g) of Article 11 shall have occurred and be continuing with respect to the Borrower, in which case the procedures specified in Section 4.4 for funding by L/C Participants shall apply or (y) the Borrower notifies the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Bank on the date of the Borrower's receipt of the relevant Reimbursement Notice that the Borrower intends to provide the reimbursement contemplated by this Section 4.5 with other sources of funds) constitute a request by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent for a borrowing pursuant to Section 2.2 of Base Rate Loans (or, at the option of the Borrower, a borrowing pursuant to Section 3.2 of Swingline Loans) in the amount of such drawing. The Borrowing Date with respect to such borrowing shall be the first date on which a borrowing of Revolving Credit Loans (or, if applicable, Swingline Loans) could be made, pursuant to Section 2.2 (or, if applicable, Section 3.2), if the Administrative Agent had received a notice of such borrowing at the time the Administrative Agent delivers the applicable Reimbursement Notice. Section 4.6 Obligations Absolute. The Borrower's obligations under this Article 4 shall be absolute and unconditional under any and all circumstances and irrespective of any setoff, counterclaim or defense to payment that the Borrower may have or have had against the relevant Issuing Bank, any beneficiary of a Letter of Credit or any other Person. The Borrower also agrees with each Issuing Bank that such Issuing Bank shall not be responsible for, and the Borrower's Reimbursement Obligations under Section 4.5 shall not be affected by, among other things, the validity or genuineness of documents or of any endorsements thereon, even though such documents shall in fact prove to be invalid, fraudulent or forged, or any dispute between or among the Borrower and any beneficiary of any Letter of Credit or any other party to which such Letter of Credit may be transferred or any claims whatsoever of the Borrower against any beneficiary of such Letter of Credit or any such transferee. No Issuing Bank shall be liable for any error, omission, interruption or delay in transmission, dispatch or delivery of any message or advice, however transmitted, in connection with any Letter of Credit issued by it, except for errors or omissions found by a final and nonappealable decision of a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Issuing Bank. The Borrower agrees that any action taken or omitted by an Issuing Bank under or in connection with any Letter of Credit or the related drafts or documents, if done in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct and in accordance with the standards of care specified in

22 the Uniform Commercial Code of the State of New York, shall be binding on the Borrower and shall not result in any liability of such Issuing Bank to the Borrower. Section 4.7 Letter of Credit Payments. If any draft shall be presented for payment under any Letter of Credit, the relevant Issuing Bank shall promptly notify the Borrower of the date and amount thereof. The responsibility of such Issuing Bank to the Borrower in connection with any draft presented for payment under any Letter of Credit shall, in addition to any payment obligation expressly provided for in such Letter of Credit, be limited to determining that the documents (including each draft) delivered under such Letter of Credit in connection with such presentment are substantially in conformity with such Letter of Credit. Section 4.8 Applications. To the extent that any provision of any Application related to any Letter of Credit is inconsistent with the provisions of this Article 4, the provisions of this Article 4 shall apply. ARTICLE 5. CAF ADVANCES Section 5.1 CAF Advances. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Borrower may borrow CAF Advances from time to time under the Total Revolving Commitment on any Banking Day during the CAF Advance Availability Period. CAF Advances may be borrowed in amounts such that the Total Revolving Extensions of Credit at any time shall not exceed the Total Revolving Credit Commitments at such time. Within the limits and on the conditions hereinafter set forth with respect to CAF Advances, the Borrower from time to time may borrow, repay and reborrow CAF Advances.

(New York City time) one Banking Day prior to the proposed Borrowing Date (in the case of a Fixed Rate CAF Advance Request). Each CAF Advance Request in respect of any Borrowing Date may solicit bids for CAF Advances on such Borrowing Date in an aggregate principal amount of $10,000,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof and having not more than three alternative CAF Advance Maturity Dates. The CAF Advance Maturity Date for each CAF Advance shall be the date set forth therefor in the relevant CAF Advance Request, which date shall be (i) not less than 14 days after the Borrowing Date therefor, in the case of a Fixed Rate CAF Advance, (ii) one, two, three or six months (or such longer period as the Borrower may elect in the relevant CAF Advance Request) after the Borrowing Date therefor, in the case of a LIBO CAF Advance and (iii) not later than the Termination Date, in the case of any CAF Advance. The Administrative Agent shall notify each Revolving Bank by facsimile transmission of the contents of each CAF Advance Request received by the Administrative Agent. (b) In the case of a LIBO Rate CAF Advance Request, upon receipt of notice from the Administrative Agent of the contents of such CAF Advance Request, each Revolving

23 Bank may elect, in its sole discretion, to offer irrevocably to make one or more CAF Advances at the applicable LIBO Rate plus (or minus) a margin determined by such Revolving Bank in its sole discretion for each such CAF Advance. Any such irrevocable offer shall be made by delivering a CAF Advance Offer to the Administrative Agent, before 10:30 A.M. (New York City time) on the day that is three Banking Days before the proposed Borrowing Date, setting forth: (i) the maximum amount of CAF Advances for each CAF Advance Maturity Date and the aggregate maximum amount of CAF Advances for all CAF Advance Maturity Dates which such Revolving Bank would be willing to make (which amounts may, subject to Section 5.1, exceed such Revolving Bank's Revolving Commitment); and (ii) the margin above or below the applicable LIBO Rate at which such Revolving Bank is willing to make each such CAF Advance. The Administrative Agent shall advise the Borrower before 11:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the date which is three Banking Days before the proposed Borrowing Date of the contents of each such CAF Advance Offer received by it. If the Administrative Agent, in its capacity as a Revolving Bank, shall elect, in its sole discretion, to make any such CAF Advance Offer, it shall advise the Borrower of the contents of its CAF Advance Offer before 10:15 A.M. (New York City time) on the date which is three Banking Days before the proposed Borrowing Date. (c) In the case of a Fixed Rate CAF Advance Request, upon receipt of notice from the Administrative Agent of the contents of such CAF Advance Request, each Revolving Bank may elect, in its sole discretion, to offer irrevocably to make one or more CAF Advances at a rate of interest determined by such Revolving Bank in its sole discretion for each such CAF Advance. Any such irrevocable offer shall be made by delivering a CAF Advance Offer to the Administrative Agent before 9:30 A.M. (New York City time) on the proposed Borrowing Date, setting forth: (i) the maximum amount of CAF Advances for each CAF Advance Maturity Date, and the aggregate maximum amount for all CAF Advance Maturity Dates, which such Revolving Bank would be willing to make (which amounts may, subject to Section 5.1, exceed such Revolving Bank's Revolving Commitment; and (ii) the rate of interest at which such Revolving Bank is willing to make each such CAF Advance. The Administrative Agent shall advise the Borrower before 10:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the proposed Borrowing Date of the contents of each such CAF Advance Offer received by it. If the Administrative Agent, in its capacity as a Revolving Bank, shall elect, in its sole discretion, to make any such CAF Advance Offer, it shall advise the Borrower of the contents of its CAF Advance Offer before 9:15 A.M. (New York City time) on the proposed Borrowing Date.

24 (d) Before 12:00 Noon (New York City time) three Banking Days before the proposed Borrowing Date (in the case of CAF Advances requested by a LIBO Rate CAF Advance Request) and before 11:00 A.M. (New York City time) on the proposed Borrowing Date (in the case of CAF Advances requested by a Fixed Rate CAF Advance Request), the Borrower, in its absolute discretion, shall: (i) cancel such CAF Advance Request by giving the Administrative Agent telephone notice to that effect, or (ii) by giving telephone notice to the Administrative Agent (immediately confirmed by delivery to the Administrative Agent of a CAF Advance Confirmation by facsimile transmission) (A) subject to the provisions of Section 5.2(e), accept one or more of the offers made by any Revolving Bank or Revolving Banks pursuant to Section 5.2(b) or Section 5.2(c), as the case may be, and (B) reject any remaining offers made by Revolving Banks pursuant to Section 5.2(b) or Section 5.2(c), as the case may be. (e) The Borrower's acceptance of CAF Advances in response to any CAF Advance Offers shall be subject to the following limitations: (i) the amount of CAF Advances accepted for each CAF Advance Maturity Date specified by any Revolving Bank in its CAF Advance Offer shall not exceed the maximum amount for such CAF Advance Maturity Date specified in such CAF Advance Offer; (ii) the aggregate amount of CAF Advances accepted for all CAF Advance Maturity Dates specified by any Revolving Bank in its CAF Advance Offer shall not exceed the aggregate maximum amount specified in such CAF Advance Offer for all such CAF Advance Maturity Dates; (iii) the Borrower may not accept offers for CAF Advances for any CAF Advance Maturity Date in an aggregate principal amount in excess of the maximum principal amount requested in the related CAF Advance Request; and (iv) if the Borrower accepts any of such offers, it must accept offers based solely upon pricing for each relevant CAF Advance Maturity Date and upon no other criteria whatsoever, and if two or more Revolving Banks submit offers for any CAF Advance Maturity Date at identical pricing and the Borrower accepts any of such offers but does not wish to (or, by reason of the limitations set forth in Section 5.1, cannot) borrow the total amount offered by such Revolving Banks with such identical pricing, the Borrower shall accept offers from all of such Revolving Banks in amounts allocated among them pro rata according to the amounts offered by such Revolving Banks (with appropriate rounding, in the sole discretion of the Borrower, to assure that each accepted CAF Advance is an integral multiple of $1,000,000); provided that if the number of Revolving Banks that submit offers for any CAF Advance Maturity Date at identical pricing is such that, after the Borrower accepts such offers pro rata in accordance with the foregoing

25 provisions of this paragraph, the CAF Advance to be made by any such Revolving Bank would be less than $5,000,000 principal amount, the number of such Revolving Banks shall be reduced by the Administrative Agent by lot until the CAF Advances to be made by each such remaining Revolving Bank would be in a principal amount of $5,000,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof. (f) If the Borrower notifies the Administrative Agent that a CAF Advance Request is cancelled pursuant to Section 5.2(d)(i), the Administrative Agent shall give prompt telephone notice thereof to the Revolving Banks. (g) If the Borrower accepts pursuant to Section 5.2(d)(ii) one or more of the offers made by any Revolving Bank or Revolving Banks, the Administrative Agent promptly shall notify each Revolving Bank which has made such an offer of (i) the aggregate amount of such CAF Advances to be made on such Borrowing Date for each CAF Advance Maturity Date and (ii) the acceptance or rejection of any offers to make such CAF Advances made by such Revolving Bank. Before 12:00 Noon (New York City time) on the Borrowing Date specified in the applicable CAF Advance Request, each Revolving Bank whose CAF Advance Offer has been accepted shall make available to the Administrative Agent at its office set forth in Section 13.1 the amount of CAF Advances to be made by such Revolving Bank, in immediately available funds. The Administrative Agent will make such funds available to the Borrower as soon as practicable on such date at such office of the Administrative Agent. As soon as practicable after each Borrowing Date, the Administrative Agent shall notify each Revolving Bank of the aggregate amount of CAF Advances advanced on such Borrowing Date and the respective CAF Advance Maturity Dates thereof. Section 5.3 CAF Advance Payments. (a) The Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of each Revolving Bank which has made a CAF Advance, on the applicable CAF Advance Maturity Date the then unpaid principal amount of such CAF Advance. The Borrower shall not have the right to prepay any principal amount of any CAF Advance without the consent of the Revolving Bank to which such CAF Advance is owed. (b) The Borrower shall pay interest on the unpaid principal amount of each CAF Advance from the Borrowing Date to applicable CAF Advance Maturity Date at the rate of interest specified in the CAF Advance Offer accepted by the Borrower in connection with such CAF Advance (calculated on the basis of a (i) 360-day year for actual days elapsed, in the case of LIBO Rate CAF Advances and (ii) 365/6-day year for actual days elapsed, the case of Fixed Rate CAF Advances), payable on each applicable CAF Advance Interest Payment Date. (c) If any principal of, or interest on, any CAF Advance shall not be paid when due (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), such CAF Advance shall, without limiting any rights of any Revolving Bank under this Agreement, bear interest from the date on which such payment was due at a rate per annum which is 2% above the rate which would otherwise be applicable to such CAF Advance until the stated CAF Advance Maturity Date of such CAF Advance, and for each day thereafter at a rate per annum which is 2% above

26 the Base Rate, in each case until paid in full (as well after as before judgment). Interest accruing pursuant to this paragraph (c) shall be payable from time to time on demand. Section 5.4 Evidence of Debt. The Borrower unconditionally promises to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of each Revolving Bank that makes a CAF Advance, on the CAF Advance Maturity Date with respect thereto, the principal amount of such CAF Advance. The Borrower further unconditionally promises to pay interest on each such CAF Advance for the period from and including the Borrowing Date of such CAF Advance on the unpaid principal amount thereof from time to time outstanding at the applicable rate per annum determined as provided in, and payable as specified in, Section 5.3(b). Each Revolving Bank shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice appropriate records evidencing indebtedness of the Borrower to such Revolving Bank resulting from each CAF Advance of such Revolving Bank from time to time, including the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid to such Revolving Bank from time to time in respect of such CAF Advance. The Administrative Agent shall maintain the Register pursuant to Section 7.1(c), and a record therein for each Revolving Bank, in which shall be recorded (i) the amount of each CAF Advance made by such Revolving Bank, the CAF Advance Maturity Date thereof, the interest rate applicable thereto and each CAF Advance Interest Payment Date applicable thereto, and (ii) the amount of any sum received by the Administrative Agent hereunder from the Borrower on account of such CAF Advance. The entries made in the Register and the records of each Revolving Bank maintained pursuant to this Section 5.4 shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations of the Borrower therein recorded; provided, however, that the failure of any Revolving Bank or the Administrative Agent to maintain the Register or any such record, or any error therein, shall not in any manner affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay (with applicable interest) the CAF Advances made by such Revolving Bank in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Section 5.5 Certain Restrictions. A CAF Advance Request may request offers for CAF Advances to be made on not more than one Borrowing Date and to mature on not more than three CAF Advance Maturity Dates. No CAF Advance Request may be submitted earlier than five Banking Days after submission of any other CAF Advance Request. ARTICLE 6. MONEY MARKET ADVANCES Section 6.1 Procedure for Borrowing of Money Market Advances. (a) The Borrower (directly or through an agent or representative) may at any time and from time to time request any one or more of the Banks to make offers to make Money Market Loans to the Borrower on any Banking Day during the Commitment Period in the manner set forth below. Each such Bank may, but shall have no obligation to, make such offer, and the Borrower may, but shall have no obligation to, accept any such offers in the manner set forth in this Article 6. (b) In the event that the Borrower desires to borrow a Money Market Loan from a Bank, the Borrower (directly or through an agent or representative) shall request that such

27 Bank provide a quotation to the Borrower of the terms under which such Bank would be willing to provide such Money Market Loan. (c) In the event that the Borrower elects to accept a Bank's offer for a Money Market Loan, the Borrower (directly or through an agent or representative) shall provide telephonic notice to such Bank of its election by no later than 90 minutes after the time that such offer was received by the Borrower. The failure of the Borrower to provide such notice of acceptance in a timely manner shall be deemed to constitute a rejection of the offer of such Bank. Any Money Market Loan to be made by a Bank pursuant to this Article 6 shall be made by the Bank crediting an account specified by the Borrower with the amount of such advance in same day funds promptly upon receipt of the Borrower's timely acceptance of the offer of such Bank with respect to such Money Market Loan. (d) Each Bank that shall make a Money Market Loan pursuant to this Section 6.1 shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent of the amount and term of such Money Market Loan. Section 6.2 Evidence of Money Market Advances. The Borrower agrees to forward to the Bank with respect to a Money Market Loan written evidence of such Money Market Loan by providing, on the date upon which such Money Market Loan is made, documents, in form and substance reasonably acceptable to both the Borrower and such Bank, executed and delivered by a duly authorized officer of the Borrower, confirming the amount so borrowed, the rate of interest applicable thereto and the maturity thereof (with such Money Market Loan being due and payable on such date of maturity); provided that the failure of the Borrower to provide such documents shall not impair the obligation of the Borrower to repay any Money Market Loan borrowed by it. All borrowings pursuant to this Article shall bear interest at the rate (or upon the basis, as the case may be) quoted to the Borrower by the relevant Bank in its quotation described in Section 6.1(b) above, regardless of any change in the interest rate between the time of quoting and the time of borrowing. Section 6.3 Acceleration of Money Market Advances. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, each Bank that has Money Market Loans outstanding may declare its Money Market Loans (with any applicable interest thereon) to be immediately due and payable without the consent of, or notice to, any other Bank; provided that if such event is an Event of Default specified in clause (f) or (g) of Article 11 with respect to the Borrower, such Bank's Money Market Loans (and any applicable interest thereon) shall automatically become immediately due and payable. Section 6.4 Prepayment of Money Market Advances. In the event that the availability under any Revolving Bank's Revolving Commitment has been reduced on account of Money Market Loans made by it to a level that is insufficient to permit such Revolving Bank to lend its ratable share of any Revolving Loan requested to be made hereunder, the Borrower shall repay such Revolving Bank's outstanding Money Market Loans simultaneously with or prior to the borrowing of such Revolving Loans (which repayment may be financed with proceeds of such Revolving Loans and shall be subject to the provisions of Section 7.14) by the amount

28 necessary to cause its Available Revolving Commitment (before giving effect to the borrowing of such Revolving Loan, but after giving effect to the application of proceeds thereof) to be at least equal to its ratable share of any such Revolving Loan. Section 6.5 Money Market Advances are Not Loans. (a) The Borrower and any Bank may at any time and from time to time enter into written agreements that provide for procedures for soliciting and extending Money Market Loans that differ from those specified in this Article 6 (other than the provisions of Sections 6.1(d), 6.4 and 6.5(b) hereof, which shall apply to each Money Market Loan). As between the Borrower and such Bank such agreements shall supersede the provisions of such paragraphs to the extent specified therein. (b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Money Market Loans shall be deemed not to be extensions of credit under this Agreement or under the Notes and the rights and obligations of the Borrower in respect of Money Market Loans shall be deemed not to be rights and obligations of the Borrower hereunder or under the Notes; provided that Money Market Loans shall be considered to be extensions of credit under this Agreement for purposes of calculating the availability under any Revolving Bank's Revolving Commitment. ARTICLE 7. GENERAL PROVISIONS APPLICABLE TO EXTENSIONS OF CREDIT Section 7.1 Repayment of Loans; Evidence of Debt. (a) The Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the appropriate Revolving Bank or the Swingline Bank, as the case may be, (i) the then unpaid principal amount of each Revolving Loan of such Revolving Bank on the Termination Date (or on such earlier date on which the Loans become due and payable in accordance with the terms of this Agreement) and (ii) the then unpaid principal amount of each Swingline Loan of the Swingline Bank on the Termination Date (or on such earlier date on which the Loans become due and payable in accordance with the terms of this Agreement). The Borrower hereby further agrees to pay interest on the unpaid principal amount of the Loans from time to time outstanding from the date hereof until payment in full thereof at the rates per annum, and on the dates, set forth in Section 7.8. (b) Each Bank shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice an account or accounts evidencing indebtedness of the Borrower to such Bank resulting from each Loan of such Bank from time to time, including the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid to such Bank from time to time under this Agreement. (c) The Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Borrower, shall maintain at its Agency Office register (the "Register") for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Banks, and the Register shall contain a subaccount therein for each Bank, in which shall be recorded (i) the amount of each Loan made hereunder and any Note evidencing such Loan, the Type of such Loan and each Interest Period applicable thereto, (ii) the amount of any principal or interest due and payable or to become due and payable from the Borrower to each Bank hereunder and (iii) both the amount of any sum received by the Administrative Agent

29 hereunder from the Borrower and each Bank's share thereof. The entries in the Register shall be conclusive, in the absence of manifest error, and the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the Banks shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register as the owner of the Loans, L/C Obligations and any Notes evidencing such Loans recorded therein for all purposes of this Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower or any Bank (with respect to any entry relating to such Bank's Loans and other extensions of credit) at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. (d) The entries made in the Register and the accounts of each Bank maintained pursuant to Section 7.1(b) shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations of the Borrower therein recorded; provided, however, that the failure of any Bank or the Administrative Agent to maintain the Register or any such account, or any error therein, shall not in any manner affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay (with applicable interest) the Loans made to the Borrower by such Bank in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. (e) The Borrower agrees that, upon the request to the Administrative Agent by any Bank (which request shall be delivered to Administrative Agent (A) within 45 days following the date hereof, in the case of a Bank which is a party hereto on the date hereof, (B) within 30 days following the recording of the relevant Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, in the case of any Assignee or (C) in either case, within any longer period as the Administrative Agent and the Borrower shall agree), the Borrower will execute and deliver to such Bank a promissory note of the Borrower evidencing any Revolving Loans or Swingline Loans, as applicable, of such Bank, substantially in the forms of Exhibit E-1 or E-2, respectively (collectively, the "Notes"), with appropriate insertions as to date and principal amount; provided that (unless the Borrower and the Administrative Agent otherwise agree) no Notes shall be delivered to the Banks until the date which is 90 days after the date hereof. Section 7.2 Facility Fee, etc. (a) The Borrower hereby agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the ratable account of the Revolving Banks, a facility fee for each day in the amount equal to the Applicable Facility Fee Rate in effect on such day times the amount of the Total Revolving Commitments (regardless of the utilization thereof) on such day. Such facility fee shall accrue from and after the Closing Date and shall be payable quarterly, in arrears, on each L/C Fee Payment Date and on the Termination Date. (b) The Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent the fees in the amounts and on the dates previously agreed to in writing by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent. Section 7.3 Termination or Reduction of Revolving Commitments. The Borrower shall have the right, upon not less than three Banking Days' notice to the Administrative Agent, to terminate the Revolving Commitments or, from time to time, to reduce the amount of the Revolving Commitments; provided that no such termination or reduction of Revolving Commitments shall be permitted if, after giving effect thereto and to any prepayments of the Revolving Loans and Swingline Loans made on the effective date thereof, (x) the Total

30 Revolving Extensions of Credit would exceed the Total Revolving Commitments or (y) the Available Revolving Commitment of any Revolving Bank would be less than zero. Any such reduction shall be in an amount equal to $10,000,000, or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof, and shall reduce permanently the Revolving Commitments then in effect. Section 7.4 Optional Prepayments. The Borrower may at any time and from time to time prepay the Loans (other than CAF Advances, which may be prepaid only with the consent of the Revolving Bank to which such CAF Advance is owed), in whole or in part, without premium or penalty, upon irrevocable notice delivered to the Administrative Agent at least three Banking Days prior thereto in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans and at least one Banking Day prior thereto in the case of Base Rate Loans, which notice shall specify (a) the date and amount of prepayment, (b) whether the prepayment is of Eurodollar Rate Loans or Base Rate Loans and (c) if such prepayment is of Eurodollar Rate Loans and the Borrower so elects, the particular Eurodollar Tranches to be so prepaid; provided, that if a Eurodollar Rate Loan is prepaid on any day other than the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, the Borrower shall also pay any amounts owing pursuant to Section 7.14. Upon receipt of any such notice the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each relevant Bank thereof. If any such notice is given, the amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein, together with (except in the case of Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans and Swingline Loans) accrued interest to such date on the amount prepaid. Partial prepayments of Revolving Loans shall be in an aggregate principal amount of $10,000,000 or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof. Partial prepayments of Swingline Loans shall be in an aggregate principal amount of $1,000,000 or a whole multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof. Section 7.5 Mandatory Prepayments and Commitment Reductions. On the last day of the Commitment Period, the Commitments shall terminate and (unless such termination occurs pursuant to Article 11 of this Agreement, in which case the provisions of such Article 11 shall govern) all principal, interest and other amounts owing hereunder shall be immediately due and payable. Section 7.6 Conversion and Continuation Options. (a) Subject to the provisions of Section 7.7, the Borrower may elect from time to time to convert any amount of Eurodollar Rate Loans to Base Rate Loans by delivering a Notice of Borrowing (substantially in the form of Exhibit C-3) to Agent prior to 12:00 Noon, New York City time, at least one Banking Day prior to the requested date of conversion. Subject to the provisions of Section 7.7, the Borrower may elect from time to time to convert any amount of Base Rate Loans (other than Swingline Loans) to Eurodollar Rate Loans by delivering a Notice of Borrowing (substantially in the form of Exhibit C-3) to Agent prior to 12:00 Noon, New York City time, at least three Banking Days' prior to the requested date of conversion. Any such Notice of Borrowing with respect to a conversion to Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be irrevocable and shall specify the length of the initial Interest Period or Interest Periods therefor. Upon receipt of any such Notice of Borrowing, Agent shall promptly notify each affected Bank thereof. All or any part of outstanding Eurodollar Rate Loans and Base Rate Loans may be converted as provided herein, provided that no Base Rate Loan may be converted into a Eurodollar Rate Loan when any Event of Default has

31 occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent has or the Majority Banks have determined that such a conversion is not appropriate. (b) Subject to the provisions of Section 7.7, any Eurodollar Rate Loan may be continued as such upon the expiration of then current Interest Period with respect thereto by the Borrower delivering a Notice of Borrowing (substantially in the form of Exhibit C-2) to the Administrative Agent, prior to 12:00 Noon (New York City time) on the third Banking Day prior to the last day of then current Interest Period, specifying the length of the next Interest Period to be applicable to such Loans, provided that no Eurodollar Rate Loan may be continued as such when any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent has or the Majority Banks have determined that such a continuation is not appropriate and provided, further, that if the Borrower shall fail to give such notice or if such continuation is not permitted such Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be automatically converted to Base Loans on the last day of such then expiring Interest Period. Upon receipt of any such notice the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each affected Bank thereof. Section 7.7 Limitations on Eurodollar Tranches. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, all borrowings, conversions and continuations of Eurodollar Rate Loans hereunder and all selections of Interest Periods hereunder shall be in such amounts and be made pursuant to such elections so that, (a) after giving effect thereto, the aggregate principal amount of the Eurodollar Rate Loans comprising each Eurodollar Tranche shall be equal to $10,000,000 or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof and (b) no more than 15 Eurodollar Tranches shall be outstanding at any one time. Section 7.8 Interest Rates and Payment Dates. (a) Each Eurodollar Rate Loan shall bear interest for each day during each Interest Period with respect thereto at a rate per annum equal to the Eurodollar Rate determined for such day plus the Eurodollar Rate Margin. (b) Each Base Rate Loan shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate. (c) (i) If all or a portion of the principal amount of any Loan or Reimbursement Obligation shall not be paid when due (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), such overdue amount shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to (x) in the case of the Loans, the rate that would otherwise be applicable thereto pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section plus 2% or (y) in the case of Reimbursement Obligations, the rate applicable to Base Rate Loans plus 2%, and (ii) if all or a portion of any interest payable on any Loan or Reimbursement Obligation or any facility fee or other amount payable hereunder shall not be paid when due (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), such overdue amount shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the rate then applicable to Base Rate Loans plus 2%, in each case, with respect to clauses (i) and (ii) above, from the date of such non-payment until such amount is paid in full (as well after as before judgment). (d) Interest shall be payable in arrears on (i) with respect to any Base Rate Loan, the last day of each March, June, September and December to occur while such Loan is

32 outstanding and the Termination Date, (ii) with respect to any Eurodollar Rate Loan having an Interest Period of three months or shorter, the last day of such Interest Period, (iii) with respect to any Eurodollar Rate Loan having an Interest Period longer than three months, each day that is three months, or a whole multiple thereof, after the first day of such Interest Period and the last day of such Interest Period and (iv) as to any Loan (other than any Revolving Credit Loan that is a Base Rate Loan and any Swingline Loan), the date of any repayment or prepayment made in respect thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, interest accruing pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section shall be payable from time to time on demand. Section 7.9 Computation of Interest and Fees. (a) Interest payable pursuant hereto shall be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual days elapsed, except that, with respect to Base Rate Loans the rate of interest on which is calculated on the basis of the Prime Rate, the interest thereon shall be calculated on the basis of a 365- (or 366-, as the case may be) day year for the actual days elapsed. Fees and other amounts payable hereunder shall be calculated on the basis of a 365- (or 366-, as the case may be) day year for the actual days elapsed. The Administrative Agent shall as soon as practicable notify the Borrower and the relevant Banks of each determination of a Eurodollar Rate. Any change in the interest rate on a Loan resulting from a change in the Base Rate or the Eurocurrency Reserve Requirements shall become effective as of the opening of business on the day on which such change becomes effective. The Administrative Agent shall as soon as practicable notify the Borrower and the relevant Banks of the effective date and the amount of each such change in interest rate. (b) Each determination of an interest rate by the Administrative Agent pursuant to any provision of this Agreement shall be conclusive and binding on the Borrower and the Banks in the absence of manifest error. The Administrative Agent shall, at the request of the Borrower, deliver to the Borrower a statement showing the quotations used by the Administrative Agent in determining any interest rate pursuant to Section 7.8(a). Section 7.10 Inability to Determine Interest Rate. If prior to the first day of any Interest Period: (a) the Administrative Agent shall have determined (which determination shall be conclusive and binding upon the Borrower) that, by reason of circumstances affecting the relevant market, adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Eurodollar Rate for such Interest Period, or (b) the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Banks which will hold a majority in principal amount of the Loans to which such Interest Period is to apply that the Eurodollar Rate determined or to be determined for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Banks (as conclusively certified by such Banks) of making or maintaining their affected Loans during such Interest Period, the Administrative Agent shall give telecopy or telephonic notice thereof to the Borrower and the relevant Banks as soon as practicable thereafter. If such notice is given (x) any Eurodollar Rate Loans under the relevant Facility requested to be made on the first day of such Interest Period

33 shall be made as Base Rate Loans, (y) any Loans under the relevant Facility that were to have been converted on the first day of such Interest Period to Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be continued as Base Rate Loans and (z) any outstanding Eurodollar Rate Loans under the relevant Facility shall be converted, on the last day of then-current Interest Period, to Base Rate Loans. Until such notice has been withdrawn by the Administrative Agent, no further Eurodollar Rate Loans under the relevant Facility shall be made or continued as such, nor shall the Borrower have the right to convert Loans under the relevant Facility to Eurodollar Rate Loans. Section 7.11 Pro Rata Treatment and Payments. (a) Each borrowing by the Borrower from the Banks hereunder, each payment by the Borrower on account of any facility fee and any reduction of the Commitments of the Banks shall be made pro rata according to the respective Revolving Percentages of the relevant Banks. (b) Each payment (including each prepayment) by the Borrower on account of principal of and interest on the Revolving Loans shall be made pro rata according to the respective outstanding principal amounts of the Revolving Loans then held by the Revolving Banks. (c) All payments (including prepayments) to be made by the Borrower hereunder, whether on account of principal, interest, fees or otherwise, shall be made without setoff or counterclaim and shall be made prior to 12:00 Noon, New York City time, on the due date thereof to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the relevant Banks, at the Funding Office, in Dollars and in immediately available funds. The Administrative Agent shall distribute such payments to the relevant Banks promptly upon receipt in like funds as received. If any payment hereunder (other than payments on the Eurodollar Rate Loans) becomes due and payable on a day other than a Banking Day, such payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Banking Day. If any payment on a Eurodollar Rate Loan becomes due and payable on a day other than a Banking Day, the maturity thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Banking Day unless the result of such extension would be to extend such payment into another calendar month, in which event such payment shall be made on the immediately preceding Banking Day. In the case of any extension of any payment of principal pursuant to the preceding two sentences, interest thereon shall be payable at then applicable rate during such extension. (d) Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified in writing by any Bank prior to a borrowing that such Bank will not make the amount that would constitute its share of such borrowing available to the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Bank is making such amount available to the Administrative Agent, and the Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrower a corresponding amount. If such amount is not made available to the Administrative Agent by the required time on the Borrowing Date therefor, such Bank shall pay to the Administrative Agent, on demand, such amount with interest thereon at a rate equal to the daily average Federal Funds Rate for the period until such Bank makes such amount immediately available to the Administrative Agent. A certificate of the Administrative Agent submitted to any Bank with respect to any amounts owing under this paragraph shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. If such Bank's share of such borrowing is not made available to the Administrative Agent

34 by such Bank within three Banking Days of such Borrowing Date, the Administrative Agent shall also be entitled to recover such amount with interest thereon at the rate per annum applicable to Base Rate Loans under the relevant Facility, on demand, from the Borrower. The failure of any Bank to make the Loan to be made by it on any date shall not relieve any other Bank of its obligation, if any, hereunder to make its Loan on such date, but no Bank shall be responsible for the failure of any other Bank to make any Loan to be made by such other Bank. (e) Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified in writing by the Borrower prior to the date of any payment being made hereunder that the Borrower will not make such payment to the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Borrower is making such payment, and the Administrative Agent may, but shall not be required to, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Banks their respective pro rata shares of a corresponding amount. If such payment is not made to the Administrative Agent by the Borrower within three Banking Days of such required date, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover, on demand, from each Bank to which any amount which was made available pursuant to the preceding sentence, such amount with interest thereon at the rate per annum equal to the daily average Federal Funds Rate. Nothing herein shall be deemed to limit the rights of the Administrative Agent or any Bank against the Borrower. Section 7.12 Increased Costs and Capital Requirements. (a) In the event that at any time or from time to time after the date of this Agreement, any Directive, or a change in any existing or future Directive (including any change resulting from the operation of any transitional or phase-in requirements), or in the interpretation or application thereof by any governmental or judicial authority, or any action pursuant thereto, or compliance by the Administrative Agent or any Bank or any Bank Holding Company with any request or Directive imposed or modified by any central bank or by any other financial, monetary or other governmental authority: (i) shall (A) impose, increase, modify or apply any reserve (including basic, supplemental, marginal and emergency reserves, but excluding reserve requirements which are expressly included in the determination of any interest rate pursuant to the provisions hereof), special deposit, compulsory loan or similar requirement against assets held by, or deposits or other liabilities with or for the account of, or credit extended by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of the Administrative Agent, any Bank or any Bank Holding Company; or (B) impose on the Administrative Agent, any Bank or any Bank Holding Company any fee, charge, tax (other than "Taxes," "Other Taxes," and "Excluded Taxes" subject to the provisions of Section 7.13) or condition with respect to this Agreement, any Note, any Application, any Letter of Credit, any Commitment or any part thereof, or any sums outstanding or payable hereunder or thereunder; and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to the Administrative Agent, any Bank or any Bank Holding Company of making or maintaining such Commitment, or any Eurodollar Rate Loan or Letter of Credit or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable with respect to such Commitment, any Eurodollar Rate Loan, any Letter of Credit or any interest, fees or other sums payable hereunder or under any Note by an amount deemed by such Bank to be

35 material, then within ten Banking Days following demand by the Administrative Agent or such Bank (which demand, if any, shall be made within six months following the occurrence of the event or circumstance giving rise to such increased cost or reduced amount receivable), the Borrower shall pay with respect to any affected Commitment (including Eurodollar Rate Loans or Letters of Credit thereunder), promptly for the account of the Administrative Agent or such Bank, such additional amount or amounts as the Administrative Agent or such Bank, in good faith, certifies in writing to the Borrower (together with sufficient detail to quantify such additional amount) shall compensate the Administrative Agent, such Bank or Bank Holding Company for the amount of such increased cost or reduced amount receivable, such certification to be conclusive and binding for all purposes hereof absent manifest error; or (ii) shall impose, modify or deem applicable any capital adequacy or similar requirement (including without limitation a request or requirement which affects the manner in which any Bank or any Bank Holding Company allocates capital resources to its commitments, including its obligations hereunder) and as a result thereof, in the sole opinion of such Bank, the rate of return on capital of such Bank or Bank Holding Company as a consequence of its obligations hereunder or in respect of any Letter of Credit is or will be reduced to a level below that which such Bank or Bank Holding Company could have achieved but for such circumstances by an amount deemed by such Bank to be material, then and in each such case upon notice to the Borrower through the Administrative Agent (which notice, if any, shall be made within six months following the occurrence of the event or circumstance giving rise to such reduced rate of return), the Borrower shall pay to such Bank such additional amount or amounts as shall compensate such Bank for such reduction in rate of return for (A) any Eurodollar Rate Loans outstanding under any Interest Period commencing after such notification, (B) any Letters of Credit with respect to the period after the end of the calendar month in which such notification was given and (C) any portion of the affected Bank's Commitment outstanding with respect to the period after the end of the calendar month in which such notification was given. If a Bank determines that it may be entitled to claim any additional amounts pursuant to this Section during the next succeeding Interest Period or month, as the case may be, it shall promptly notify, through the Administrative Agent, the Borrower and each other Bank of the event by reason of which it has become so entitled together with sufficient detail to quantify such additional amount. A certificate as to any such additional amount or amounts submitted by a Bank, through the Administrative Agent, to the Borrower and the other Banks shall, in the absence of manifest error, be final and conclusive. In determining such amount, a Bank may use any reasonable averaging and attribution methods. (b) Any Bank claiming any additional amounts payable pursuant to this Section shall use its reasonable best efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to change the jurisdiction of its Applicable Lending Office, if the making of such a

36 change would avoid the need for or reduce the amount of, any such additional amounts which would otherwise be payable hereunder and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Bank, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Bank. (c) Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of the Borrower hereunder, the agreement and obligations of the Borrower contained in this Section 7.12 shall survive the payment in full of the amounts owing hereunder and under the Notes and the termination of this Agreement. Section 7.13 Taxes. (a) Subject to clause (e) below, any and all payments by the Borrower hereunder shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any and all present or future taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings, and all liabilities with respect thereto, excluding, (i) in the case of each Bank and the Administrative Agent, taxes imposed on its income, and franchise taxes imposed on it, by the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Bank or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) is organized or any political subdivision thereof, (ii) in the case of each Bank with respect to payments made hereunder, taxes imposed on its income, and franchise taxes imposed on it, by the jurisdiction of such Bank's Applicable Lending Office, or any political subdivision thereof and (iii) in the case of each Bank and the Administrative Agent, taxes imposed by the United States by means of withholding taxes if and to the extent that such withholding taxes shall be in effect and shall be applicable on the date hereof under current laws and regulations (including judicial and administrative interpretations thereof) to payments to be made for the account of such Bank's Applicable Lending office, or to the Administrative Agent (all taxes described in subclauses (i), (ii) and (iii) being referred to as "Excluded Taxes" and all taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges, withholdings and liabilities not described in subclauses (i), (ii) and (iii) being hereinafter referred to as "Taxes"). If the Borrower shall be required by law to deduct any Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable hereunder to any Bank or the Administrative Agent, (i) the sum payable shall be increased as may be necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) such Bank or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had not such deductions been made, (ii) the Borrower shall make such deductions, and (iii) the Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant taxation authority or other authority in accordance with applicable Law (and shall be entitled to any "Tax Credit" with respect to such payment pursuant to clause (i) of this Section). (b) In addition, the Borrower agrees to pay any present or future stamp or documentary taxes or any other excise or property taxes, charges or similar levies (other than Excluded Taxes) which arise from any payment made hereunder or from the execution, delivery or registration or filing or recording of, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement or document delivered hereunder (hereinafter referred to as "Other Taxes"). (c) The Borrower will indemnify each Bank and the Administrative Agent for the full amount of Taxes or Other Taxes (including, without limitation, any Taxes or Other Taxes imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section) paid by such Bank or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) and any liability (including penalties, interest and

37 expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally asserted. This indemnification shall be made within 30 days from the date such Bank or the Administrative Agent (as the case may be) makes written demand therefor. If, in the reasonable opinion of the Borrower or such Bank, any amount has been paid with respect to Taxes or Other Taxes which are not correctly or legally asserted, such Bank will cooperate with the Borrower (such cooperation to be without expense or liability to such Bank) in seeking to obtain a refund of such amount; provided, that, such Bank shall not be required to cooperate in seeking to obtain a refund unless (i) if such Bank reasonably requests, the Borrower has delivered to such Bank an opinion of independent tax counsel selected by the Borrower and reasonably acceptable to such Bank to the effect that there is a reasonable possibility of success, (ii) such Bank has received from the Borrower satisfactory indemnification for any liability, loss, cost or expense arising out of or relating to the effort to obtain such refund, and (iii) the Borrower shall have indemnified such Bank for the payment of such Taxes or Other Taxes pursuant to this clause (c). Each Bank and the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, will promptly (within 30 days) notify the Borrower of the assertion of any liability by any taxing authority with respect to Taxes or Other Taxes and any payment by such Bank or the Administrative Agent of such Taxes or Other Taxes; provided, that, the failure to give such notice shall not relieve the Borrower of its obligations hereunder to make indemnification for any such liability except that the Borrower shall not be liable for penalties or interest (x) accruing after such 30 day period until such time as it receives the notice contemplated above, after which time it shall be liable for interest and penalties accruing after such receipt or (y) to the extent that such penalties or interest arise as a direct result of such failure to give notice. (d) Within 30 days after the date of any payment of Taxes, the Borrower will (as to Taxes paid by it) furnish to the Administrative Agent, at the Agency Office, the original or a certified copy of a receipt or other evidence satisfactory to the Administrative Agent of payment thereof. (e) On or before the Closing Date in the case of each Bank originally a party hereto, or on or before the effective date of the Assignment and Acceptance Agreement pursuant to which it became a Bank in the case of an Assignee, and within 30 days following the first day of each calendar year or if otherwise reasonably requested from time to time by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, each Bank organized under the laws of a jurisdiction outside the United States shall provide the Administrative Agent and the Borrower with three counterparts of each of the forms prescribed by the Internal Revenue Service (Form 1001 or 4224, or successor form(s), as the case may be) of the United States certifying as to such Bank's (if applicable) status for purposes of determining exemption from United States withholding taxes with respect to all payments to be made to such Bank hereunder. Unless the Borrower and the Administrative Agent have received within 10 days after the Borrower or the Administrative Agent requests such forms or other documents satisfactory to them indicating that payments hereunder are not subject to United States withholding tax, the Borrower or the Administrative Agent (if not withheld by the Borrower) shall withhold taxes from such payments at the applicable statutory rate, without any obligation to "gross-up" or make such Bank or the Administrative Agent whole under clause (a) of this Section, provided, however, that, the Borrower shall have the obligation to make such Bank or the Administrative Agent whole and to "gross-up" under clause (a) of this Section, if the

38 failure to so deliver such forms or make such statements (other than the forms and statements required to be delivered on or made prior to the Closing Date or on the effective date of the Assignment and Acceptance Agreement in the case of an Assignee) is the result of the occurrence of an event (including, without limitation, any change in Law) which (alone or in conjunction with other events) renders such forms inapplicable, that would prevent such Bank or the Administrative Agent from making the statements contemplated by such forms or which removes or reduces an exemption (whether partial or complete) from withholding tax previously available to such Bank or the Administrative Agent. Each Bank (and the Administrative Agent, if applicable) will promptly notify the Borrower of the occurrence (when known to it) of an event contemplated by the foregoing proviso. Upon request of the Borrower, each Bank which is organized under the laws of the United States or any State thereof shall provide the Borrower and the Administrative Agent with two duplicates of a duly completed Form W-9 or successor form. (f) Any Bank claiming any additional amounts payable pursuant to this Section shall use its reasonable best efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to change the jurisdiction of its Applicable Lending Office, if the making of such a change would avoid the need for or reduce the amount of, any such additional amounts which may thereafter accrue and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Bank, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Bank. (g) Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of the Borrower hereunder, the agreement and obligations of the Borrower contained in this Section 7.13 shall survive the payment in full of the amounts owing hereunder and under the Notes (and the termination of this Agreement) for a period expiring concurrently with the expiration of the statute of limitations applicable to claims made by the tax authorities to collect Taxes or Other Taxes. (h) Each Bank (and the Administrative Agent with respect to payments to the Administrative Agent for its own account) agrees that (i) it will take all reasonable actions by all usual means to maintain all exemptions, if any, available to it from the United States withholding taxes (whether available by treaty, existing administrative waiver, by virtue of the location of any Bank's Applicable Lending Office or otherwise) and (ii) otherwise cooperate with the Borrower to minimize amounts payable by the Borrower under this Section; provided, however, that, each Bank and the Administrative Agent shall not be obligated by reason of this clause (h) to disclose any information regarding its tax affairs or tax computations or to reorder its tax or other affairs or tax or other planning. (i) If any Bank shall receive a credit or refund from a taxing authority with respect to, and actually resulting from, an amount of Taxes or Other Taxes actually paid to or on behalf of such Bank by the Borrower (a "Tax Credit"), such Bank shall promptly notify the Borrower of such Tax Credit. If such Tax Credit is received by such Bank in the form of cash, such Bank shall promptly pay to the Borrower the amount so received with respect to the Tax Credit. If such Tax Credit is not received by such Bank in the form of cash, such Bank shall pay the amount of such Tax Credit not later than the time prescribed by applicable Law for filing the return (including extensions of time) for such Bank's taxable period which includes the period in

39 which such Bank receives the economic benefit of such Tax Credit. In any event, the amount of any Tax Credit payable by a Bank to the Borrower pursuant to this clause (i) shall not exceed the actual amount of cash refunded to, or credits received and usable by, such Bank from a taxing authority. In determining the amount of any Tax Credit, a Bank may use such apportionment and attribution rules as such Bank customarily employs in allocating taxes among its various operations and income sources and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower further agrees promptly to return to a Bank the amount paid to the Borrower with respect to a Tax Credit by such Bank if such Bank is required to repay, or is determined to be ineligible for, a Tax Credit for such amount. Section 7.14 Indemnity. The Borrower agrees to indemnify each Bank and to hold each Bank harmless from any loss or expense that such Bank may sustain or incur as a consequence of (a) default by the Borrower in making a borrowing of, conversion into or continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans after the Borrower has given a notice requesting the same in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, (b) default by the Borrower in making any prepayment of or conversion from Eurodollar Rate Loans after the Borrower has given a notice thereof in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement or (c) the making of a prepayment of Eurodollar Rate Loans (including, without limitation, any prepayment made pursuant to the provisions of Section 7.5 or 7.15) on a day that is not the last day of an Interest Period with respect thereto. The amount to be so indemnified by the Borrower shall be (x) paid to each Bank, through the Administrative Agent, within ten Banking Days following demand by such Bank and (y) shall be the amount equal to the excess of (i) the amount of interest that would have accrued on the amount so prepaid, or not so borrowed, converted or continued, for the period from the date of such prepayment or of such failure to borrow, convert or continue to the last day of such Interest Period (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, the Interest Period that would have commenced on the date of such failure) in each case at the applicable rate of interest for such Loans provided for herein (excluding, however, the Eurodollar Rate Margin included therein, if any) over (ii) the amount of interest (as reasonably determined by such Bank) that would have accrued to such Bank on such amount by placing such amount on deposit for a comparable period with leading banks in the interbank eurodollar market. A certificate as to any amounts payable pursuant to this Section submitted to the Borrower by any Bank shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. This covenant shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder.

40 Section 7.15 Additional Action in Certain Events. If any event or condition described in Section 7.12 or 7.13 has occurred and is continuing that increases the cost to the Borrower of the Loans, Commitments or Letters of Credit by any Bank or Banks, the Borrower may (after paying any accrued amounts required to be paid pursuant to Section 7.12 or 7.13 hereof for the period prior to the taking of such action) either: (a) require any Bank so affected by such event or condition to transfer or assign, in whole (but not in part), without recourse, its Commitment and Loans hereunder in accordance with the provisions of Section 13.11(a) to one or more Assignees (which need not be existing Banks hereunder) identified to it by the Borrower; provided that (x) no Bank shall be required to assign all or any portion of its Commitments and Loans pursuant to this Section 7.15 unless and until such Bank shall have received from such Assignees one or more payments which, in an aggregate, are at least equal to the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Loans (other than CAF Advances) owing to such Bank and all accrued interest and other amounts owing on account thereof and (y) any CAF Advances owing to such Bank shall (at the election of the Borrower) either remain outstanding in accordance with their terms (in which case the Borrower shall remain liable for any such amounts required to be paid pursuant to Section 7.12 or 7.13) or be prepaid by the Borrower (together with accrued interest through the date of prepayment and, in the case of a LIBO Rate CAF Advance, any "breakage" costs resulting from such prepayment); or (b) prepay in full the Loans and terminate the Commitment of any Bank so affected by such event or condition, upon giving the Administrative Agent and such Bank or Banks at least five Banking Days' prior irrevocable notice thereof specifying the date of prepayment and, upon such prepayment and termination, the Commitment of such affected Bank shall be terminated; provided that no such prepayment and termination shall be permitted (x) during such time as an Event of Default (or event which, with the giving of notice or lapse of time or both, would constitute an Event of Default) has occurred and is continuing or (y) if, after giving effect thereto (and to the related reallocation of participating interests in Swingline Loans and L/C Obligations) the Total Revolving Extensions of Credit exceed the Total Revolving Commitments then in effect. Any such prepayment hereunder shall be made by the Borrower, without premium, together with interest thereon and any other amounts payable hereunder, on the date specified in such notice. ARTICLE 8. CONDITIONS OF COMMITMENTS Section 8.1 Conditions Precedent to Closing Date. The agreement of each Bank to make the initial extension of credit requested to be made by it hereunder is subject to the satisfaction, prior to or concurrently with the making of such extension of credit on the Closing Date, of the following conditions precedent:

41 (a) Definitive Documentation. The Administrative Agent shall have received counterparts hereof, duly executed and delivered by the Borrower and each Lender. (b) Legal Opinion. The Administrative Agent shall have received a favorable opinion of Steven M. Woghin, General Counsel to the Borrower, substantially in the form of Exhibit D hereto. (c) Fees. The Banks, the Co-Syndication Agents, the Documentation Agent and the Administrative Agent shall have received all fees required to be paid on or before the Closing Date and all expenses for which invoices have been presented to the Borrower at least three Banking Days before the Closing Date. Promptly following the Closing Date, the Administrative Agent shall deliver (or cause to be delivered) to each Bank a copy of each document, instrument and agreement provided to the Administrative Agent by the Borrower pursuant to this Section 8.1. Section 8.2 Conditions Precedent to Each Extension of Credit. The Commitment of each Bank to make each extension of credit (including, without limitation, the initial extensions of credit) shall be subject to the further conditions precedent that, on the date of such extension of credit, the following statements shall be true (and the delivery of a Notice of Borrowing shall be deemed to constitute a representation and warranty by Borrower that on the date of such extension of credit such statements are true): (a) The representations and warranties contained in Article 9 of this Agreement are correct in all material respects on and as of the date of such extension of credit, before and after giving effect to such extension of credit, and to any other extensions of credit to be made contemporaneously therewith, and to the application of the proceeds therefrom, as though made on and as of such date (except to the extent that such representations and warranties are specifically limited to a prior date, in which case such representations and warranties shall be true and correct in all material respects on and as of such prior date). (b) No event has occurred and is continuing, or would result from such extension of credit or from any other extensions of credit to be made contemporaneously therewith, or from the application of the proceeds therefrom, which constitutes, or with the lapse of time or the giving of notice or both would constitute, an Event of Default. ARTICLE 9. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES To induce the Administrative Agent and the Banks to enter into this Agreement and to make the Loans and issue or participate in the Letters of Credit, the Borrower hereby represents and warrants to the Administrative Agent and each Bank that:

42 Section 9.1 Organization of Credit Parties. Each of the Borrower and each Material Subsidiary of the Borrower is duly organized and existing under the Laws of the jurisdiction of its formation, and is properly qualified to do business and in good standing in, and where necessary to maintain its rights and privileges has complied with the fictitious name statute of, every jurisdiction where the failure to maintain such qualification, good standing or compliance could reasonably be expected to materially adversely affect the Borrower's ability to perform its obligations hereunder. Section 9.2 Authorization of Credit Documents.

Amounts held in such cash collateral account shall be applied by the Administrative Agent to the payment of drafts drawn under such Letters of Credit, and the unused portion thereof after all such Letters of Credit shall have expired or been fully drawn upon, if any, shall be applied to repay other obligations of the Borrower hereunder and under the Notes. After all such Letters of Credit shall have expired or been fully drawn upon, all Reimbursement Obligations shall have been satisfied and all other obligations of the Borrower hereunder and under the Notes shall have been paid in full, the balance, if any, in such cash collateral account shall be returned to the Borrower. The Borrower shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Issuing Bank and the L/C Participants, such further documents and instruments as the Administrative Agent may request to evidence the creation and perfection of the within security interest in such cash collateral account.

(b) Each Bank hereby appoints (i) each Co-Agent as a co-agent on behalf of such Bank (ii) each Co-Syndication Agent as a co-syndication agent on behalf of such Bank and (iii) the Documentation Agent as a documentation agent on behalf of such Bank.

Section 12.3 Administrative Agent and Affiliates. With respect to its Commitment, the Loans made by it and the obligations of the Borrower owed to it under this Agreement and the Notes as a Bank and with respect to any Letter of Credit issued or participated in by it, the Administrative Agent shall have the same rights and powers under this Agreement as any other Bank and may exercise the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent; and the term "Bank" or "Banks" shall, unless otherwise expressly indicated, include the Administrative Agent in its individual capacity. The Administrative Agent and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, act as trustee under indentures of, and generally engage in any kind of business with, the Borrower, any of its Subsidiaries and any Person who may do business with or own securities of the Borrower or any such Subsidiary, all as if the Administrative Agent were not the Administrative Agent and without any duty to account therefor to the Banks. Section 12.4 Bank Credit Decision. Each Bank acknowledges that (a) it has, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Bank and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement, (b) it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other 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 and (c) the Administrative Agent has no duty or responsibility, either initially or on a continuing basis, to provide any Bank with any credit or other information (other than obtained under the provisions of this Agreement) with respect thereto, whether coming into its possession before the date hereof or at any time thereafter. Section 12.5 Indemnification. Each Bank agrees to indemnify the Administrative Agent, each Co-Syndication Agent and the Documentation Agent (to the extent not reimbursed by the Borrower), ratably according to the ratio of such Bank's Commitments to the Commitments of all Banks, from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever which may be imposed on, incurred by, or asserted against the Administrative Agent, the Co-Syndication Agent or the Documentation Agent in any way relating to or arising out of

55 this Agreement or any action taken or omitted by the Administrative Agent, Co-Syndication Agent or the Documentation Agent, as the case may be, hereunder, provided that no Bank shall be liable for any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Administrative Agent, Co-Syndication Agent or the Documentation Agent, as the case may be. Without limiting the foregoing, each Bank agrees to reimburse the Administrative Agent promptly upon demand for such Bank's ratable share (based on the proportion of all Commitments held by such Bank) of any out-of-pocket expenses (including reasonable counsel fees) incurred by the Administrative Agent in connection with the preparation, execution, delivery, administration, modification, amendment or enforcement (whether through negotiations, legal proceedings or otherwise) of, or legal advice in respect of rights or responsibilities under, this Agreement to the extent that the Administrative Agent is not reimbursed for such expenses by the Borrower. The provisions of this Section 12.5 shall survive termination of this Agreement. Section 12.6 Successor Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent may resign at any time as the Administrative Agent under this Agreement by giving 30 days' prior written notice thereof to the Banks and the Borrower. Upon any such resignation, the Majority Banks shall have the right to appoint a successor Administrative Agent thereunder (which successor Administrative Agent shall be reasonably acceptable to the Borrower). If no successor Administrative Agent shall have been so appointed by the Majority Banks, and shall have accepted such appointment, within 30 days after the retiring Administrative Agent's giving of notice of resignation, then the retiring Administrative Agent may, on behalf of the Banks, appoint a successor Administrative Agent, which shall (a) be either (i) a commercial bank organized under the laws of the United States of America or of a state thereof or (ii) an office of a commercial bank organized under the laws of a jurisdiction outside of the United States which is located within the United States and is regulated by the bank regulatory authorities of the United States or of a state thereof and (b) have a combined capital and surplus of at least $500,000,000. Unless and until a successor Administrative Agent shall have been appointed as above provided, the retiring Administrative Agent shall serve as a caretaker Administrative Agent unless dismissed by the Majority Banks. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as the Administrative Agent under this Agreement by a successor Administrative Agent, such successor Administrative Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Administrative Agent, and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from all duties and obligations of the Administrative Agent arising thereafter under this Agreement. After any retiring Administrative Agent's resignation or removal as the Administrative Agent under this Agreement, the provisions of this Article 12 shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was the Administrative Agent hereunder. ARTICLE 13. MISCELLANEOUS Section 13.1 Notices. Except as provided in Article 6 with respect to the matters therein specified, all notices, demands, instructions, requests, and other communications required

56 or permitted to be given to, or made upon, any party hereto shall be in writing and (except for financial statements and other related informational documents to be furnished pursuant hereto which may be sent by first-class mail, postage prepaid) shall be personally delivered or sent by registered or certified mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested, or by overnight courier, or by prepaid telex, telecopy, or telegram (with messenger delivery specified) and shall be deemed to be given for purposes of this Agreement on the day that such writing is received by the Person to whom it is to be sent pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement. Unless otherwise specified in a notice sent or delivered in accordance with the foregoing provisions of this Section, notices, demands, requests, instructions, and other communications in writing shall be given to or made upon each party hereto at the address (or its telex or telecopier numbers, if any) set forth (x) in the case of any Bank on the date hereof, (y) as its address for notices on Schedule 1 hereto, in the case of any Assignee, set forth in the relevant Assignment and Acceptance Agreement and (z) in the case of the Borrower, beneath its signature hereto. Section 13.2 Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns; provided, however, that (a) the Borrower shall not assign this Agreement or any of the rights of the Borrower hereunder or under any Note without the prior written consent of all Banks and the Administrative Agent (the giving of such consent to be in each Bank's and the Administrative Agent's sole and absolute discretion), and any such purported assignment without such consent shall be absolutely void, and (b) no Bank shall assign this Agreement or any of the rights or obligations of such Bank hereunder or under any Note except in accordance with Section 13.11. Section 13.3 Amendments and Related Matters. Neither this Agreement or any other Credit Document, nor any terms hereof or thereof may be amended, supplemented or modified except in accordance with the provisions of this Section 13.3. The Majority Banks and the Borrower may, or (with the written consent of the Majority Banks) the Administrative Agent and the Borrower may, from time to time, (a) enter into written amendments, supplements or modifications hereto and to the other Credit Documents (including amendments and restatements hereof or thereof) for the purpose of adding any provisions to this Agreement or the other Credit Documents or changing in any manner the rights of the Banks or of the Borrower hereunder or thereunder or (b) waive, on such terms and conditions as may be specified in the instrument of waiver, any of the requirements of this Agreement or the other Credit Documents or any Event of Default (or event which, with the giving of notice or lapse of time or both, would constitute an Event of Default) and its consequences; provided, however, that no such waiver and no such amendment, supplement or modification shall: (i) forgive all or any part of the principal amount or extend the final scheduled date of maturity of any Loan or Reimbursement Obligation, reduce the stated rate of any interest or fee payable hereunder or extend the scheduled date of any payment thereof, or increase the amount or extend the expiration date of any Commitment of any Bank, in each case without the consent of each Bank directly affected thereby; (ii) amend, modify or waive any provision of this Section or reduce any percentage specified in the definition of Majority Banks, consent to the assignment or

57 transfer by the Borrower of any of its rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents, in each case without the consent of all Banks; (iii) amend, modify or waive any provision of Article 3 without the written consent of the Swingline Bank; (iv) amend, modify or waive any provision of Section 7.11 without the consent of each Bank directly affected thereby; or (v) amend, modify or waive any provision of Article 4 without the consent of the Issuing Bank. Any such waiver and any such amendment, supplement or modification shall apply equally to each of the Banks and shall be binding upon the Borrower, the Banks, the Administrative Agent and all future holders of the Loans and other extensions of credit hereunder. In the case of any waiver, the Borrower, the Banks and the Administrative Agent shall be restored to their former position and rights hereunder and under the other Credit Documents, and any Event of Default (or event which, with the giving of notice or the lapse of time or both, would constitute an Event of Default) waived shall be deemed to be cured and not continuing; but no such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other Event of Default (or event which, with the giving of notice or the lapse of time or both, would constitute an Event of Default), or impair any right consequent thereon. Any such waiver, amendment, supplement or modification shall be effected by a written instrument signed by the parties required to sign pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section; provided, that delivery of an executed signature page of any such instrument by facsimile transmission shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart thereof. Section 13.4 Costs and Expenses; Indemnification. (a) Expenses. The Borrower agrees to pay on demand (i) all reasonable costs and expenses of the Administrative Agent in connection with the preparation, execution, delivery, modification and amendment of this Agreement, the Notes and the other documents to be delivered hereunder, including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and out-of-pocket expenses of counsel for the Administrative Agent with respect thereto and (ii) all reasonable costs and expenses of the Administrative Agent and the Banks, if any (including, without limitation, reasonable fees and expenses of in-house or outside counsel), in connection with the enforcement (whether through negotiations, legal proceedings or otherwise) and restructuring of this Agreement, the Notes and the other documents to be delivered hereunder. (b) Indemnification. The Borrower agrees to indemnify the Administrative Agent, each Co-Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent, each Bank and each officer, director, Affiliate, employee, agent or representative of the Administrative Agent, a Co-Syndication Agent, the Documentation Agent, or a Bank ("Bank Indemnitees") and hold each Bank Indemnitee harmless from and against any and all liabilities, losses, damages, costs, and expenses of any kind (including the reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel for any Bank Indemnitee) ("Losses") in connection with any investigative, administrative, or judicial proceeding, whether or not such Bank Indemnitee shall be designated a party thereto (but if not a

58 party thereto, then only with respect to such proceedings where such Bank Indemnitee (i) is subject to legal process (whether by subpoena or otherwise) or other compulsion of law, (ii) believes in good faith that it may be so subject, or (iii) believes in good faith that it is necessary or appropriate for it to resist any legal process or other compulsion of law which is purported to be asserted against it), which may be incurred by any Bank Indemnitee, relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents, any of the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, or any actual or proposed use of proceeds of Loans or other extensions of credit hereunder; provided, however, that the foregoing will not apply to any Losses of a Bank Indemnitee to the extent they are found by a final decision of a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Bank Indemnitee. (c) Survival. Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of the Borrower hereunder, the agreement and obligations of the Borrower contained in this Section 13.4 shall survive the payment in full of the amounts owing hereunder and the termination of this Agreement; provided that, from and after the date upon which this Agreement is terminated, any request for indemnity must be provided to the Borrower within six months following the occurrence of the event giving rise thereto (or, if the amount of such claim is not then reasonably determinable, within six months after such amount becomes reasonably determinable). Section 13.5 Oral Communications. The Administrative Agent may, but is not required to, accept and act upon oral communications which it reasonably believes to be from a Responsible Officer of the Borrower (or any other natural person designated by such a Responsible Officer). Any oral communication from the Borrower to the Administrative Agent (including telephone communications) hereunder shall be immediately confirmed in writing by the Borrower, but in the event of any conflict between any such oral communication and the written confirmation thereof, such oral communication shall control if the Administrative Agent has acted thereon prior to actual receipt of written confirmation. The Borrower shall indemnify the Administrative Agent and hold the Administrative Agent harmless from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, claims, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses and disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever (including attorneys' fees) which arise out of or are incurred in connection with the making of Loans or taking other action in reliance upon oral communications, except that the Administrative Agent shall not be indemnified against its own gross negligence or willful misconduct. Section 13.6 Entire Agreement. This Agreement and the other Credit Documents are intended by the parties hereto to be a final and complete expression of all terms and conditions of their agreement with respect to the subject matter thereof and supersede all oral negotiations and prior writings in respect to the subject matter hereof. Section 13.7 Governing Law. THIS AGREEMENT AND EACH OTHER CREDIT DOCUMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED UNDER THE INTERNAL LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

59 Section 13.8 Severability. The illegality or unenforceability of any provision of this Agreement or any other Credit Document shall not in any way affect or impair the legality or enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement or such Credit Document. Section 13.9 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in as many counterparts as may be deemed necessary or convenient, and by the different parties hereto on separate counterparts, each of which, when so executed, shall be deemed an original but all such counterparts shall constitute but one and the same agreement. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page to this Agreement or any other Credit Document (including, without limitation, any amendment, waiver, supplement or other modification hereto) by telecopier shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement. Section 13.10 Confidentiality. Unless otherwise required by any Directive, the Administrative Agent and each Bank agrees not to disclose to unrelated third parties information clearly marked as "Confidential" provided to it pursuant to this Agreement, the other Credit Documents or any Compliance Certificate, except that there shall be no obligation of confidentiality in respect of (i) any information which may be generally available to the public or becomes available to the public through no fault of the Administrative Agent or such Bank; (ii) communications with actual or prospective participants, or Assignees which undertake in writing to be bound by this Section 13.10; (iii) any communications with the Administrative Agent or any Bank; (iv) the Administrative Agent's or any Bank's directors, officers, employees and other representatives and agents, and directors, officers, employees and other representatives and agents of its Affiliates, legal counsel, auditors, internal bank examiners and regulatory authorities having jurisdiction over such Bank, and to the extent necessary or advisable in its judgment other experts or consultants retained by it, if in the case of a person or entity other than a director, officer, employee, legal counsel, auditor or internal bank examiner, the Administrative Agent or such Bank obtains from such person or entity an undertaking in writing as to confidentiality substantially identical to this undertaking and (v) information which is compelled to be disclosed pursuant to legal process or court order (provided that, to the extent practicable and permitted by applicable Laws, prompt notice of such compulsion shall be given to the Borrower in order to permit the Borrower to defend against such disclosure). The Administrative Agent and each Bank shall be further permitted to disclose any such confidential information to the extent relevant (in the reasonable judgment of the Administrative Agent or such Bank, as the case may be) in connection with any litigation in which the Borrower is an opposing party (provided that the Administrative Agent or such Bank, as the case may be, shall request that the court or other relevant judicial authority take action to maintain the confidentiality of such information).

60 Section 13.11 Assignments and Participations. (a) Assignments. Each Bank may, upon at least five Banking Days' notice to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower assign to one or more financial institutions (an "Assignee") all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement and its Note (including, without limitation, all or a portion of its Commitment, and the Loans); provided, however, that (i) each such assignment shall be of a constant, and not a varying, percentage of the assigning Bank's rights and obligations under the relevant Commitment and Note being assigned (it being understood that any such assignment need not be of a ratable share of the Commitments and Notes held by the assigning Bank), (ii) unless the Administrative Agent and the Borrower otherwise consent, the aggregate amount of the Commitments and (without duplication) Loans of the assigning Bank being assigned pursuant to each such assignment to an assignee which is not then a Bank hereunder or an affiliate thereof (determined as of the date of the Assignment and Acceptance Agreement with respect to such assignment) shall not be less than $5,000,000 and, unless such assigning Bank is assigning its entire Revolving Credit Commitment, shall not reduce the aggregate amount of the Commitments retained by such Bank to less than $5,000,000, (iii) each such assignment shall be to a financial institution, (iv) the parties to each such assignment shall execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent, for its approval, acceptance and recording an Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, together with (except in the case of any assignment made pursuant to Section 7.15, in which event no such fee shall be due) a processing and recordation fee of $3,500, and (v) except in the case of an assignment to an assignee which is a Bank or an affiliate thereof, or an assignment which is made when an Event of Default is continuing, the Borrower shall consent to such assignment, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. Upon such execution, delivery, approval, acceptance and recording, from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, (x) the Assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto as a Bank and, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned to it pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, have the rights and obligations of a Bank hereunder and (y) the Bank assignor thereunder shall, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned by it pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, relinquish its rights and be released from its obligations under this Agreement and its Note (and, in the case of an Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, covering all or the remaining portion of an assigning Bank's rights and obligations under this Agreement and its Note, such Bank shall cease to be a party hereto). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, no Assignee shall be entitled to receive compensation under Section 7.12 or 7.13 hereof to the extent that circumstances giving rise to such payment were in effect on the date of the relevant assignment. (b) Effect of Assignment. By executing and delivering an Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, a Bank assignor thereunder and the Assignee thereunder confirm to and agree with each other and the other parties hereto as follows: (i) other than as expressly provided in such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, such assigning Bank makes 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 any other Credit Document or the execution, legality, validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of this Agreement or any other Credit Document or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto; (ii) such assigning Bank makes no representation or warranty and assumes no

61 responsibility with respect to the financial condition of the Borrower or the performance or observance by the Borrower of any of its obligations hereunder or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto or with respect to the taxability of payments to be made hereunder; (iii) such assignee confirms that it has received a copy of this Agreement, together with copies of the financial statements referred to in Section 9.10 and Section 10.1(h) and such other Credit Documents and other documents and information as it has deemed appropriate to make its own credit analysis and decision to enter into such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement; (iv) such Assignee will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent, such assigning Bank or any other 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) such Assignee appoints and authorizes the Administrative Agent to take such action as agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers under this Agreement as are delegated to the Administrative Agent by the terms hereof, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto; and (vi) such Assignee agrees that 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. (c) Recording of Assignments. The Administrative Agent shall maintain at its Agency Office a copy of each Assignment and Acceptance Agreement delivered to and accepted by it. The records of the Administrative Agent as to the names and addresses of the Banks and the Commitments of, and principal amount of the Loans owing to, each Bank from time to time shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error. The Borrower and the Administrative Agent and the Banks may treat each Person indicated by the records of the Administrative Agent to be a Bank hereunder as such for all purposes of this Agreement. Upon request of the Borrower or any Bank from time to time, the Administrative Agent shall inform the Borrower or such Bank, as the case may be, of the identities of the Banks hereunder. (d) Assignments Recorded. Upon its receipt of an Assignment and Acceptance Agreement executed by an assigning Bank and an Assignee, the Administrative Agent shall, if such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement has been properly completed, and subject to the Borrower's consent as above provided and payment by the parties thereto of the requisite processing and recordation fee (i) accept such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement and (ii) record the information contained therein in its records. (e) Participations. Each Bank may sell participations to one or more Persons in or to all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement and its Note (including, without limitation, all or a portion of its Commitments and the Loans and other extensions of credit owing to it); provided, however, that (i) such Bank's obligations under this Agreement and its Note(s) (including, without limitation, its Commitments to the Borrower hereunder) shall remain unchanged, (ii) such Bank shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations, (iii) such Bank shall remain the owner of such Loans and other extensions of credit for all purposes of this Agreement and its Note(s), and (iv) the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, and the Banks shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Bank in connection with such Bank's rights and obligations under this Agreement and its Note(s), provided, further, to the extent of any such participation (unless otherwise stated therein

62 and subject to the preceding and succeeding provisos), the assignee or purchaser of such participation shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, have the same rights and benefits hereunder as it would have if it were a Bank hereunder; and provided, further, that each such participation shall be granted pursuant to an agreement providing that the purchaser thereof shall not have the right to consent or object to any action by the selling Bank (who shall retain such right) other than an action which would (i) reduce principal of or interest on any Loan or fees payable hereunder in which such purchaser has an interest, or (ii) postpone any date fixed for payment of principal of or interest on any such Loan or such fees; and provided, further, that notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this clause (e), the provisions of Sections 7.12 and 7.13 hereof shall apply to the purchasers of participations only to the extent, if any, that the Bank selling such participation would be entitled to request additional amounts under such Sections if such Bank had not sold or assigned such participation. (f) Funding by Special Purpose Funding Vehicles. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, any Bank (a "Granting Bank") may grant to a special purpose funding vehicle ("SPC") of such Granting Bank, identified as such in writing from time to time by the Granting Bank to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, the option to provide to the Borrower all or any part of any Loan that such Granting Bank otherwise would be obligated to make to the Borrower, provided that (i) nothing herein shall constitute a commitment by any SPC to make any Loan and (ii) if an SPC elects not to exercise such option to make a Loan or otherwise fails to provide all or any part thereof, the Granting Bank shall remain obligated to make such Loan pursuant to the terms hereof. The making of a Loan by an SPC hereunder shall be deemed to constitute a utilization of the Commitment of the Granting Bank to the same extent, and as if, such Loan were made by the Granting Bank. Each party hereto hereby agrees that no SPC shall be liable for any indemnity or similar payment obligation under this Agreement (all liability for which shall remain with the related Granting Bank). In furtherance of the foregoing, each party hereto hereby agrees (which agreement shall survive the termination of this Agreement) that, prior to the date that is one year and one day after the payment in full of all outstanding senior indebtedness of any SPC, it will not institute against, or join any other person in instituting against, such SPC any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceedings or similar proceedings under the laws of the United States or any State thereof with respect to obligations arising hereunder or under any other Credit Document. In addition, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section 13.10 or this Section 13.11, any SPC may (i) with notice to, but without the prior written consent of, the Borrower or the Administrative Agent and without paying any processing fee therefor, assign all or a portion of its interests in any Loans to its Granting Bank and (ii) disclose (subject to a written agreement by the recipient to maintain the confidentiality thereof) any non-public information relating to its Loans to any rating agency, commercial paper dealer or provider of a surety, guarantee or credit or liquidity enhancement to such SPC. The provisions of Sections 7.12 and 7.13 hereof shall apply to an SPC only to the extent, if any, that the relevant Granting Bank would be entitled to request additional amounts under such Sections if the SPC had not undertaken the funding obligation of such Granting Bank.

63 (g) Assignment to Federal Reserve Bank. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, each Bank shall have the right to assign or pledge from time to time any or all of its Commitment, Loans or other rights hereunder to any Federal Reserve Bank. Section 13.12 Waiver of Trial by Jury. THE BORROWER, THE BANKS, AND THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT THEY MAY LEGALLY DO SO, HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OF ANY CLAIM, DEMAND, ACTION, CAUSE OF ACTION, OR PROCEEDING ARISING UNDER OR WITH RESPECT TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE OTHER CREDIT DOCUMENTS, OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH, OR RELATED TO, OR INCIDENTAL TO, THE DEALINGS OF THE PARTIES HERETO WITH RESPECT TO THIS AGREEMENT, OR THE OTHER CREDIT DOCUMENTS, THE NEGOTIATION, ADMINISTRATION, PERFORMANCE, OR ENFORCEMENT HEREOF OR THEREOF, OR THE TRANSACTIONS RELATED HERETO OR THERETO, IN EACH CASE WHETHER NOW EXISTING OR HEREAFTER ARISING, AND IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER SOUNDING IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE. TO THE EXTENT THEY MAY LEGALLY DO SO, THE BORROWER, THE BANKS AND THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT HEREBY AGREE THAT ANY SUCH CLAIM, DEMAND, ACTION, CAUSE OF ACTION, OR PROCEEDING SHALL BE DECIDED BY A COURT TRIAL WITHOUT A JURY AND THAT ANY PARTY HERETO MAY FILE AN ORIGINAL COUNTERPART OR A COPY OF THIS SECTION 13.12 WITH ANY COURT AS WRITTEN EVIDENCE OF THE CONSENT OF THE OTHER PARTY OR PARTIES HERETO TO WAIVER OF ITS OR THEIR RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY. Section 13.13 Choice of Forum and Service of Process. The Borrower hereby irrevocably and unconditionally: (a) submits for itself and its property in any legal action or proceeding relating to this Agreement and the other Credit Documents to which it is a party, or for recognition and enforcement of any judgement in respect thereof, to the non-exclusive general jurisdiction of the Courts of the State of New York, the courts of the United States of America for the Southern District of New York, and appellate courts from any thereof; (b) agrees that service of process in any such action or proceeding may be effected by mailing a copy thereof by registered or certified mail (or any substantially similar form of mail), postage prepaid, to the Borrower at its address set forth under its signature hereto or at such other address of which the Administrative Agent shall have been notified pursuant thereto; (c) agrees that nothing herein shall affect the right to effect service of process in any other manner permitted by law or shall limit the right to sue in any other jurisdiction; and

64 (d) consents that any action or proceeding described in Section 13.13(a) may be brought in the Courts of the State of New York, the courts of the United States of America for the Southern District of New York, and appellate courts from any thereof, and waives any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the venue of any such action or proceeding in any such court or that such action or proceeding was brought in an inconvenient court and agrees not to plead or claim the same. Section 13.14 Remedies. The remedies provided to the Administrative Agent and the Banks herein are cumulative and are in addition to, and not in lieu of, any remedies provided by law. To the maximum extent permitted by law, remedies may be exercised by the Administrative Agent or any Bank successively or concurrently, and the failure to exercise any remedy shall not constitute a waiver thereof, nor shall the single or partial exercise of any remedy preclude any other or further exercise of such remedy or any other right or remedy. Section 13.15 Right of Set-Off. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, each Bank is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set-off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) at any time held and other indebtedness at any time owing by such Bank to or for the credit or the account of the Borrower against an equivalent amount of the amounts owing to such Bank hereunder which are then due and payable, irrespective of whether or not such Bank shall have made any demand under this Agreement. Each Bank agrees promptly to notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent after any such set-off and application is made by such Bank, provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application. The rights of each Bank under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including, without limitation, other rights of set-off) which such Bank may have. Section 13.16 Effectiveness. This Agreement shall become effective on the date (which date shall occur on or before the Closing Date) upon which the Administrative Agent shall have received counterparts of this Agreement, duly executed by the Borrower and the Banks listed on the signature pages hereof.
