OPCo may assign borrowings under the Credit Agreement to AGR upon the transfer of OPCo's generation assets to AGR. Subject to regulatory approval, AGR may further assign a portion of the borrowings to APCo and KPCo upon AGR's subsequent transfer of certain of those generation assets to APCo and KPCo. Borrowings by OPCo under the Credit Agreements are available and will occur upon customary terms and conditions for facilities of this type.

The Credit Agreement does not permit the lenders to refuse a draw on the facility if a material adverse change occurs.
