(a) Joint and Several Liability . Subject in all cases to the Agreed Security Principles, all Obligations (as defined in this Section 11.28 below) of the Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrowers under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be joint and several Obligations of each Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower. Anything contained in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to the contrary notwithstanding, the Obligations of each Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower hereunder, solely to the extent that such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower did not receive proceeds of Loans from any borrowing thereunder, shall be limited to a maximum aggregate amount equal to the largest amount that would not render its Obligations hereunder subject to avoidance as a fraudulent transfer or conveyance under Fraudulent Transfer Laws, in each case after giving effect to all other liabilities of such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower, contingent or otherwise, that are relevant under the Fraudulent Transfer Laws (specifically excluding, however, any liabilities of such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower in respect of intercompany Indebtedness to any other Loan Party or Affiliates of any other Loan Party to the extent that such Indebtedness would be discharged in an amount equal to the amount paid by such Loan Party hereunder) and after giving effect as assets to the value (as determined under the applicable provisions of the Fraudulent Transfer Laws) of any rights to subrogation or contribution of such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower pursuant to (i) applicable law or (ii) any agreement providing for an equitable allocation among such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower and other Affiliates of any Loan Party of Obligations arising under the Guaranty by such parties.
(b) Subrogation . Until the Obligations shall have been paid in full in cash, each Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower shall withhold exercise of any right of subrogation, contribution or any other right to enforce any remedy which it now has or may hereafter have against the other Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower or any other guarantor of the Obligations. Each Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower further agrees that, to the extent the waiver of its rights of subrogation, contribution and remedies as set forth herein is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be void or voidable for any reason, any such rights such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower may have against the other Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower, any collateral or security or any such other guarantor, shall be junior and subordinate to any rights Collateral Agent may have against the other Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower, any such collateral or security, and any such other guarantor. The Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrowers under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents together desire to allocate among themselves, in a fair and equitable manner, their Obligations arising under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Accordingly, in the event any payment or distribution is made on any date by any Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (a “ Euro Tranche C-6 Funding Borrower ”) that exceeds its Euro Tranche C-6 Obligation Fair Share as of such date, that Euro Tranche C-6 Funding Borrower shall be entitled to a contribution from the other Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower in the amount of such other Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower’s Euro Tranche C-6 Obligation Fair Share Shortfall (as defined below) as of such date, with the result that all such contributions will cause each Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower’s Euro Tranche C-6 Obligation Aggregate Payments to equal its Euro Tranche C-6 Obligation Fair Share as of such date. “ Euro Tranche C-6 Obligation Fair Share ” means, with respect to a Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower as of any date of determination, an amount equal to (i) the ratio of (x) the Euro Tranche C-6 Obligation Fair

14




Share Contribution Amount with respect to such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower to (y) the aggregate of the Euro Tranche C-6 Obligation Fair Share Contribution Amounts with respect to all Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrowers, multiplied by (ii) the aggregate amount paid or distributed on or before such date by all Euro Tranche C-6 Funding Borrowers under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents in respect of the Obligations guarantied. “ Euro Tranche C-6 Obligation Fair Share Shortfall ” means, with respect to a Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower as of any date of determination, the excess, if any, of the Euro Tranche C-6 Obligation Fair Share of such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower over the Euro Tranche C-6 Obligation Aggregate Payments of such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower. “ Euro Tranche C-6 Obligation Fair Share Contribution Amount ” means, with respect to a Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower as of any date of determination, the maximum aggregate amount of the Obligations of such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents that would not render its Obligations hereunder subject to avoidance as a fraudulent transfer or conveyance under §548 of the Bankruptcy Code, 11 U.S.C. §548, or any comparable applicable provisions of state law; provided that, solely for purposes of calculating the Euro Tranche C-6 Obligation Fair Share Contribution Amount with respect to any Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrowers for purposes of this Agreement, any assets or liabilities of such Loan Party arising by virtue of any rights to subrogation, reimbursement or indemnification or any rights to or Obligations of contribution hereunder shall not be considered as assets or liabilities of such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower. “ Euro Tranche C-6 Obligation Aggregate Payments ” means, with respect to a Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower as of any date of determination, an amount equal to (i) the aggregate amount of all payments and distributions made on or before such date by such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower in respect of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (including in respect of this Agreement) minus (ii) the aggregate amount of all payments received on or before such date by such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower from the other Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrowers as contributions under this Agreement. The amounts payable as contributions hereunder shall be determined as of the date on which the related payment or distribution is made by the applicable Euro Tranche C-6 Funding Borrower. The allocation among the Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrowers of their Obligations as set forth in this Agreement shall not be construed in any way to limit the liability of any Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower hereunder or under any Loan Document.

(d) Allocation of Loans . All Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loans shall be made to MEH BV as borrower unless a different allocation of such Loans as between MEH BV and MacDermid Funding with respect to any borrowing hereunder is included in the applicable Committed Loan Notice.
(e) Obligations Absolute . Each Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower hereby waives, for the benefit of Secured Parties: (a) any right to require any Secured Party, as a condition of payment or performance by such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower, to (i) proceed against any other Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower, any guarantor (including any other Guarantor) of the Obligations or any other Person, (ii) proceed against or exhaust any security held from any other Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower, any guarantor or any other Person, (iii) proceed against or have resort to any balance of any Deposit Account (as defined in the Pledge and Security Agreement) or credit on the books of any Secured Party in favor of any other Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower or any other Person, or (iv) pursue any other remedy in the power of any Secured Party whatsoever; (b) any defense arising by reason of the incapacity, lack of authority or any disability or other defense of any other Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower or any Guarantor including any defense based on or arising out of the lack of validity or the unenforceability of the Obligations or any agreement or instrument relating thereto or by reason of the cessation of the liability of any other Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower or any Guarantor from any cause other than payment in full of the Obligations; (c) any defense

15




based upon any statute or rule of law which provides that the obligation of a surety must be neither larger in amount nor in other respects more burdensome than that of the principal; (d) any defense based upon any Secured Party’s errors or omissions in the administration of the Obligations, except behavior which amounts to bad faith; (e) (i) any principles or provisions of law, statutory or otherwise, which are or might be in conflict with the terms hereof and any legal or equitable discharge of such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower’s obligations hereunder, (ii) the benefit of any statute of limitations affecting such Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower’s liability hereunder or the enforcement hereof, (ii) any rights to set offs, recoupments and counterclaims, and (iii) promptness, diligence and any requirement that any Secured Party protect, secure, perfect or insure any security interest or lien or any property subject thereto; (f) notices, demands, presentments, protests, notices of protest, notices of dishonor and notices of any action or inaction, including acceptance hereof, notices of default hereunder or under the Treasury Management Agreements, Secured Hedge Agreements or any agreement or instrument related thereto, notices of any renewal, extension or modification of the Obligations or any agreement related thereto, notices of any extension of credit to the Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrowers and notices of any of the matters referred to in Section 4.02 and any right to consent to any thereof; and (g) any defenses or benefits that may be derived from or afforded by law which limit the liability of or exonerate guarantors or sureties, or which may conflict with the terms hereof.
For the purposes of this Section 11.28 , “ Obligations ” means (a) all advances to, and debts, liabilities, obligations, covenants and duties of, any Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower or Loan Party that is a Foreign Subsidiary or Excluded Domestic Subsidiary arising under (i) any Loan Document or otherwise with respect to any Loan extended to any Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower or any payment required to be made by any Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower in respect of a Letter of Credit, whether direct or indirect (including those acquired by assumption), absolute or contingent, due or to become due, now existing or hereafter arising including the obligation to pay principal, interest, Letter of Credit commissions, charges, expenses, fees, attorneys’ fees and disbursements, indemnities and other amounts payable by any Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower or Loan Party that is a Foreign Subsidiary or Excluded Domestic Subsidiary under any Loan Document and including interest and fees that accrue after the commencement by or against any Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower or Loan Party that is a Foreign Subsidiary or Excluded Domestic Subsidiary or any Affiliate thereof of any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Laws naming such Person as the debtor in such proceeding, regardless of whether such interest and fees are allowed claims in such proceeding, (ii) any Secured Hedge Agreement and (iii) any Treasury Management Agreement between any such Loan Party and an Agent, an Arranger, the Bookrunner or a Lender, in each case at the time such applicable Treasury Management Agreement is entered into, or an Affiliate of any of the foregoing and (b) the obligation of any Euro Tranche C-6 Term Loan Borrower or Loan Party that is a Foreign Subsidiary or Excluded Domestic Subsidiary to reimburse any amount in respect of any of the foregoing that any Lender, in its reasonable sole discretion, may elect to pay or advance on behalf of such Loan Party.

Platform Specialty Products Corporation
Completes Repricing of $1.4 Billion of Term Loans
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., October 3, 2017 -- Platform Specialty Products Corporation (NYSE:PAH) ("Platform"), a global specialty chemicals company, announced today that it successfully completed the repricing of its existing USD B-5 and EUR C-4 term loan tranches, totaling $1.4 billion. These tranches were created in connection with Platform's term loan repricing which closed on December 6, 2016. This term loan repricing is the fourth to be completed since October 2016 and represents the second interest cost reduction on these specific borrowings under its credit agreement. The expected incremental annual interest savings is approximately $14 million as a result of this transaction.
Platform refinanced its USD B-5 and EUR C-4 term loan tranches by incurring a new $680 million USD B-7 term loan tranche and a new €630 million EUR C-6 term loan tranche. Similar to the other repricings, Platform used the proceeds of the new term loan tranches to concurrently prepay in full the existing USD B-5 and EUR C-4 term loan tranches. This repricing resulted in a 100 basis point reduction in total interest rate across both the USD and Euro tranches, from a combination of reduced spread and reduced base rate floor. As part of this transaction, the EURIBOR floor on the EUR C-5 term loan tranche was reduced from 1.00% to 0.75%. Finally, this transaction also shifted approximately $76 million from EUR term loans to USD term loans.
Credit Suisse, HSBC and Deutsche Bank acted as Joint Lead Arrangers for this transaction.
About Platform
Platform is a global, diversified producer of high-technology specialty chemicals and a provider of technical services. The business involves the formulation of a broad range of solutions-oriented specialty chemicals, which are sold into multiple industries, including automotive, agriculture, animal health, electronics, graphic arts, and offshore oil and gas production and drilling. More information on Platform is available at www.platformspecialtyproducts.com .
Forward-Looking Statements
Certain statements contained in this release are intended to qualify for the safe harbor from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 as it contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the federal securities laws, which include statements regarding annual interest savings and capital planning flexibility. These projections and statements are based on management's estimates and assumptions with respect to future events and financial performance, and are believed to be reasonable, though are inherently difficult to predict.  Actual results could differ materially from those projected as a result of certain factors, including, among other things, Platform’s ability to successfully separate its Agricultural Solutions business and realize the anticipated benefits from the proposed separation, market conditions and volatility, legal, tax and regulatory requirements, and the possibility of more attractive strategic options arising in the future.  Additional information concerning these and other factors that could cause results to vary is, or will be, included in Platform's periodic and other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including Platform's annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016. Platform undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
