SECTION 5.Credit Agreement.  Except as specifically provided hereby, the Credit Agreement shall continue in full force and effect in accordance with the provisions thereof as in existence on the date hereof.  After the Increase Amount Date, any reference to the Credit Agreement in any Loan Document shall mean the Credit Agreement as modified hereby.  This Increase Joinder shall be a Loan Document for all purposes.
