The Notes are secured on a first-priority basis by liens on all of the assets that secure the Company’s Term Loan Facility and on a second-priority basis in all inventory, accounts receivable, deposit accounts, securities accounts, certain related assets and other current assets that secure the ABL Facility on a first-priority basis and the Term Loan Facility on a second-priority basis, in each case, other than certain excluded assets.
