(or its permitted successor), a Pennsylvania corporation (the “Issuer”), the Issuer, Koppers Holdings Inc., as a Guarantor, the other Subsidiary Guarantors (as defined in the Indenture referred to herein) and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee under the Indenture referred to below (the “Trustee”).

W I T N E S S E T H

WHEREAS, the Issuer has heretofore executed and delivered to the Trustee an indenture (the “Indenture”), dated as of January 25, 2017 providing for the issuance of 6.00% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Notes”);

WHEREAS, the Indenture provides that under certain circumstances the Guaranteeing Subsidiary shall execute and deliver to the Trustee a supplemental indenture pursuant to which the Guaranteeing Subsidiary shall unconditionally guarantee all of the Issuer’s Obligations under the Notes and the Indenture on the terms and conditions set forth herein (the “Guarantee”); and

WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 9.01 of the Indenture, the Trustee is authorized to execute and deliver this Supplemental Indenture.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, the Guaranteeing Subsidiary and the Trustee mutually covenant and agree for the equal and ratable benefit of the Holders as follows:

1.CAPITALIZED TERMS.  Capitalized terms used herein without definition shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Indenture.

4.NO RECOURSE AGAINST OTHERS.  No director, officer, employee, incorporator or stockholder of the Issuer or any Guarantor, as such, will have any liability for any obligations of the Issuer or the Guarantors under the Notes, this Indenture, the Guarantees or for any claim based on, in respect of, or by reason of, such obligations or their creation.  Each Holder by accepting a Note waives and releases all such liability.  The waiver and release are part of the consideration for issuance of the Notes.  The waiver may not be effective to waive liabilities under the federal securities laws.

5.NEW YORK LAW TO GOVERN.  THE INTERNAL LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK SHALL GOVERN AND BE USED TO CONSTRUE THIS SUPPLEMENTAL INDENTURE WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO APPLICABLE PRINCIPLES OF CONFLICTS OF LAW TO THE EXTENT THAT THE APPLICATION OF THE LAWS OF ANOTHER JURISDICTION WOULD BE REQUIRED THEREBY.

2.Amendment to Section 1.1 [Certain Definitions].  Section 1.1 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended as follows:

3.Amendment to Section 8.2.13 [Issuance of Stock].  Section 8.2.13 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended and restated as follows:

“8.2.13Issuance of Stock.  Neither Holdings nor the Borrower shall issue any capital stock, options or warrants, the effect of which would result in a Change of Control.  Other than (a) as permitted under Sections 8.2.5 and 8.2.9, or (b) issuance of capital stock by one Subsidiary which is not a Loan Party to another Subsidiary which is not a Loan Party, each of the Loan Parties other than the Borrower and Holdings shall not, and shall not permit any of its Subsidiaries to, issue any additional shares of its capital stock or any options, warrants or other rights in respect thereof.”

 


 

 

4.Amendment to Section 11.17 [Acknowledgement Regarding Any Supported QFCs].  The reference to “Covered Entity” contained in Section 11.17 is hereby deleted and replaced by a reference to “QFC Covered Entity”.

(b)the Borrower and each of the Guarantors possesses all of the powers requisite for it to enter into and carry out the transactions of the Borrower and each Guarantor referred to herein and to execute, enter into and perform the terms and conditions of this Amendment, the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents and any other documents contemplated herein that are to be performed by the Borrower or such Guarantor; any and all actions required or necessary pursuant to the Borrower’s or such Guarantor’s organizational documents or otherwise have been taken to authorize the due execution, delivery and performance by the Borrower and such Guarantor of the terms and conditions of this Amendment; the officers of the Borrower and each Guarantor executing this Amendment are the duly elected, qualified, acting and incumbent officers of such Loan Party and hold the titles set forth below their names on the signature lines of this Amendment; and such execution, delivery and performance will not conflict with, constitute a default under or result in a breach of any applicable law or any agreement, instrument, order, writ, judgment, injunction or decree to which the Borrower or such Guarantor is a party or by which the Borrower or such Guarantor or any of its properties is bound, and that all consents, authorizations and/or approvals required or necessary from any third parties in connection with the entry into, delivery and performance by the Borrower and such Guarantor of the terms and conditions of this Amendment, the Credit Agreement, the other Loan Documents and the transactions contemplated hereby have been obtained by the Borrower and such Guarantor and are in full force and effect;

2


 

(c)this Amendment, the Credit Agreement, and the other Loan Documents constitute the valid and legally binding obligations of the Borrower and each Guarantor, enforceable against the Borrower and each Guarantor in accordance with their respective terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws and by general equitable principles, whether enforcement is sought by proceedings at law or in equity;

(d)all representations and warranties made by the Borrower and each Guarantor in the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents are true and correct in all material respects (or in the case of any such representation and warranty that is qualified by materiality or reference to Material Adverse Change, in all respects) as of the date hereof, except to the extent that any such representation and warranty relates to a specific date, in which case such representation and warranty shall be true and correct in all material respects (or in the case of any such representation and warranty that is qualified by materiality or reference to Material Adverse Change, in all respects) as of such earlier date, with the same force and effect as if all such representations and warranties were fully set forth herein and made as of the date hereof and the Borrower and each Guarantor has complied with all covenants and undertakings in the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents;

(e)no Event of Default or Potential Default has occurred and is continuing under the Credit Agreement or the other Loan Documents; there exist no defenses, offsets, counterclaims or other claims with respect to the Borrower’s or any Guarantor’s obligations and liabilities under the Credit Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents; and

(f)the Borrower and each Guarantor hereby ratifies and confirms in full its duties and obligations under the Credit Agreement, the Guaranty Agreement, and the other Loan Documents applicable to it, each as modified hereby.

4
