(c)           Evidence of Exemption from U.S. Withholding Tax.  Each Lender that is not a United States person (as such term is defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the Internal Revenue Code) for U.S. Federal income Tax purposes (a “Non-US Lender”) shall, to the extent such Lender is legally able to do so, deliver to Administrative Agent for transmission to Borrower, on or prior to the Closing Date (in the case of each Lender listed on the signature pages hereof on the Closing Date) or on or prior to the date of the Assignment Agreement pursuant to which it becomes a Lender (in the case of each other Lender), and at such other times as may be necessary in the determination of Borrower or Administrative Agent (each in the reasonable exercise of its discretion), (i) two original copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, W-8BEN-E, W-8ECI, W-8EXP, W-8IMY and/or any other form prescribed by applicable law (or, in each case, any successor forms), properly completed and duly executed by such Lender, and such other documentation required under the Internal Revenue Code and reasonably requested by Borrower to establish that such Lender is not subject to (or is subject to a reduced rate of) deduction or withholding of United States Federal income Tax with respect to any payments to such Lender of principal, interest, fees or other amounts payable under any of the Credit Documents, or (ii) if such Lender (or, if such Lender is providing a W-8IMY, if any beneficial owner that is not a United States person) is not a “bank” or other Person described in Section 881(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, a Certificate re Non-Bank Status together with two original copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W‑8BEN or W-8BEN-E (or any successor form), properly completed and duly executed by such Lender or beneficial owner, and such other documentation required under the Internal Revenue Code and reasonably requested by Borrower to establish that such Lender or such beneficial owner is not subject to (or is subject to a reduced rate of) deduction or withholding of United States Federal income Tax with respect to any payments to such Lender or beneficial owner of interest payable under any of the Credit Documents.  Each Lender that is a United States person (as such term is defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the Internal Revenue Code) for United States Federal income Tax purposes (a “U.S. Lender”) shall deliver to Administrative Agent and Borrower on or prior to the Closing Date (or, if later, on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a party to this Agreement) two original copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 (or any successor form), properly completed and duly executed by such Lender, certifying that such U.S. Lender is entitled to an exemption from United States backup withholding Tax, or otherwise prove that it is entitled to such an exemption.  Each Lender required to deliver any forms, certificates or other evidence with respect to United States Federal income Tax withholding matters pursuant to this Section 2.20(c) hereby agrees, from time to time after the initial delivery by such Lender of such forms, certificates or other evidence, whenever a lapse in time or change in circumstances renders such forms, certificates or other evidence obsolete or inaccurate in any material respect, that such Lender shall promptly deliver to Administrative Agent for transmission to Borrower two new original copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, W-8BEN-E, W-8ECI, W-8EXP, W-8IMY, W-9 and/or any other form prescribed by applicable law (or, in each case, any successor form), or a Certificate re Non-Bank Status and two original copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E(or any successor form), as the case may be, properly completed and duly executed by such Lender, and such other documentation required under the Internal Revenue Code and reasonably requested by Borrower to confirm or establish that such Lender is not subject to deduction or withholding of United States Federal income Tax with respect to payments to such Lender under the Credit Documents, or notify Administrative Agent and Borrower of its inability to deliver any such forms, certificates or other evidence.  Notwithstanding anything in this clause (c) to the contrary, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, W-8BEN-E, W-8ECI, W‑8EXP, W-8IMY or W-9 (or, in each case, any successor form) or a Certificate re Non-Bank Status) shall not be required if in the Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.
