and warranties specifically refer to an earlier date, in which case they are true and correct in all material respects (and in all respects if any such representation and warranty is already qualified by materiality or reference to Material Adverse Effect) as of such earlier date and (B) no event has occurred and is continuing which constitutes a Default or an Event of Default.

 

(d) Each of the Loan Parties hereby affirms the Liens created and granted in the Loan Documents in favor of the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, and agrees that this Agreement does not adversely affect or impair such Liens and security interests in any manner.

The invalidity of a provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.

 

(g) THIS AGREEMENT AND ANY CLAIM, CONTROVERSY, DISPUTE OR CAUSE OF ACTION (WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR OTHERWISE) BASED UPON, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT AND THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY, SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.
