C. Borrower has requested that Administrative Agent and Lenders constituting at least the Required Lenders waive the 2020 Unqualified Audit Requirement and any Default or Event of Default which would otherwise arise as a result of Borrower’s failure to comply with the 2020 Unqualified Audit Requirement (collectively, the “Potential Defaults”).
