PART I: BUSINESS ITEMS 1. BUSINESS GENERAL AmeriGas Partners, L.P. ("AmeriGas Partners" or the "Partnership") is a publicly traded limited partnership formed under Delaware law on November 2, 1994. We became the largest retail propane distributor in the United States, based on retail sales volume, upon completion of the acquisition of the Columbia Propane businesses described below. We serve approximately 1.2 million residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural and motor fuel customers from approximately 650 district locations in 46 states. We conduct our business principally through our subsidiary, AmeriGas Propane, L.P. ("AmeriGas OLP") and its subsidiary, AmeriGas Eagle Propane, L.P. ("Eagle OLP" and together with AmeriGas OLP, the "Operating Partnership"), both Delaware limited partnerships. Eagle OLP has a less-than-one percent minority limited partner. Our common units ("Common Units"), which represent limited partner interests, are traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "APU." Our executive offices are located at 460 North Gulph Road, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania 19406, and our telephone number is (610) 337-7000. In this report, the terms "Partnership" and "AmeriGas Partners," as well as the terms "our," "we," and "its," are used sometimes as abbreviated references to AmeriGas Partners, L.P. itself or AmeriGas Partners, L.P. and its consolidated subsidiaries, including the Operating Partnership. AmeriGas Propane, Inc. is our general partner (the "General Partner"). The General Partner is a wholly owned subsidiary of UGI Corporation ("UGI"), a public company listed on the New York Stock Exchange and the Philadelphia Stock Exchange. Through various subsidiaries, UGI has been in the propane distribution business for over 40 years. The General Partner and its subsidiary Petrolane Incorporated have a majority ownership interest in the Partnership. See Note 1 to the Partnership's Consolidated Financial Statements. The General Partner is responsible for managing our operations. We have three co-registrants: AmeriGas Finance Corp., formed on March 13, 1995; AmeriGas Eagle Finance Corp., formed on February 22, 2001; and AP Eagle Finance Corp., formed on April 12, 2001 (each, a "Finance Corp." and together the "Finance Corp."). Each Finance Corp. serves as co-obligor for one of our series of senior notes. Each Finance Corp. has nominal assets and conducts no business operations. Accordingly, this report contains no discussion of the results of operations, liquidity or capital resources of any Finance Corp. The Finance Corp. executive offices are located at 460 North Gulph Road, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania 19406; telephone number (610) 337-7000. -1-

BUSINESS STRATEGY Our strategy is to increase market share through acquisitions and internal growth, leverage our national and local economies of scale, and achieve operating efficiencies through business process improvements. We regularly consider and evaluate opportunities for growth through the acquisition of local, regional and national propane distributors. Acquisitions are an important part of our strategy, because the demand for propane is expected to remain relatively constant for the foreseeable future, with year-to-year industry volumes being affected primarily by weather patterns. We may choose to finance future acquisitions with debt, equity, cash or a combination of the three. We compete for acquisitions with others engaged in the propane distribution business. Although we believe there are numerous potential acquisition candidates in the industry, there can be no assurance that we will find attractive candidates in the future, or that we will be able to acquire such candidates on economically acceptable terms. Internal growth will be provided in part from expansion of our PPX Prefilled Propane Xchange(R) and national accounts programs. In addition, we believe opportunities exist to grow our business internally through sales and marketing programs designed to attract and retain customers. COLUMBIA PROPANE ACQUISITION On August 21, 2001, AmeriGas Propane, L.P. acquired the propane distribution businesses of Columbia Energy Group. These businesses were conducted through Columbia Propane Corporation and its 99% owned subsidiary, Columbia Propane, L.P. Prior to the acquisition, Columbia Propane, based in Richmond, Virginia, was the seventh largest retail propane marketer in the United States, selling approximately 308 million gallons annually from 186 locations in 29 states. Following the acquisition, Columbia Propane, L.P. changed its name to AmeriGas Eagle Propane, L.P. and Columbia Propane Corporation changed its name to AmeriGas Eagle Propane, Inc. Both entities do business under the trade name AmeriGas(R). AmeriGas OLP and the General Partner own more than 99% of Eagle OLP and an unaffiliated third party retains the remaining interest. See Note 3 to the Partnership's Consolidated Financial Statements. GENERAL INDUSTRY INFORMATION Propane is separated from crude oil during the refining process and also extracted from natural gas or oil wellhead gas at processing plants. Propane is normally transported and stored in a liquid state under moderate pressure or refrigeration for economy and ease of handling in shipping and distribution. When the pressure is released or the temperature is increased, it is usable as a flammable gas. Propane is colorless and odorless; an odorant is added to allow its detection. Propane is clean burning, producing negligible amounts of pollutants when properly consumed. The primary customers for propane are residential, commercial, agricultural, motor fuel and industrial users to whom natural gas is not readily available. Propane is typically more -2-

expensive than natural gas, competitive with fuel oil when operating efficiencies are taken into account and, in most areas, cheaper than electricity on an equivalent energy basis. PRODUCTS, SERVICES AND MARKETING As of September 30, 2002, the Partnership distributed propane to approximately 1.2 million customers from approximately 650 district locations in 46 states. The Partnership also sells, installs and services propane appliances, including heating systems. In certain markets, the Partnership also installs and services propane fuel systems for motor vehicles. Typically, district locations are found in suburban and rural areas where natural gas is not available. Districts generally consist of an office, appliance showroom, warehouse and service facilities, with one or more 18,000 to 30,000 gallon storage tanks on the premises. As part of its overall transportation and distribution infrastructure, the Partnership operates as an interstate carrier in 48 states throughout the United States. It is also licensed as a carrier in Canada. The Partnership sells propane primarily to five markets: residential, commercial/industrial, motor fuel, agricultural and wholesale. Approximately 79% of the Partnership's fiscal year 2002 sales (based on gallons sold) were to retail accounts and approximately 21% were to wholesale customers. Sales to residential customers in fiscal 2002 represented approximately 41% of retail gallons sold; industrial/commercial customers 38%; motor fuel customers 13%; and agricultural customers 8%. Residential customers represented 52% of the Partnership's total propane margin. No single customer accounts for 5% or more of the Partnership's consolidated revenues. In the residential market, which includes both conventional and manufactured housing, propane is used primarily for home heating, water heating and cooking purposes. Commercial users, which include motels, hotels, restaurants and retail stores, generally use propane for the same purposes as residential customers. The Partnership continues to expand its PPX(R) program. At September 30, 2002, PPX(R) was available at approximately 15,600 retail locations throughout the country. Industrial customers use propane to fire furnaces, as a cutting gas and in other process applications. Other industrial customers are large-scale heating accounts and local gas utility customers who use propane as a supplemental fuel to meet peak load deliverability requirements. As a motor fuel, propane is burned in internal combustion engines that power over-the-road vehicles, forklifts and stationary engines. Agricultural uses include tobacco curing, chicken brooding and crop drying. In its wholesale operations, the Partnership principally sells propane to large industrial end-users and other propane distributors. The PPX Prefilled Propane Xchange program ("PPX(R)") enables consumers to exchange their empty 20-pound propane grill cylinders for filled cylinders at various retail locations such as home centers and grocery and convenience stores. During fiscal year 2002, the Partnership introduced PPX(R) Plus. PPX(R) Plus cylinders are equipped with a special overfill protection devIce ("OPD") required by the National Fire Protection Association ("NFPA"). Sales of our PPX(R) Plus grill cylinders to retailers are included in the commercial/industrial market. -3-

Retail deliveries of propane are usually made to customers by means of bobtail and rack trucks. Propane is pumped from the bobtail truck, which generally holds 2,400 to 3,000 gallons of propane, into a stationary storage tank on the customer's premises. The Partnership owns most of these storage tanks and leases them to its customers. The capacity of these tanks ranges from approximately 100 gallons to approximately 1,200 gallons. The Partnership also delivers propane to retail customers in portable cylinders with capacities of 4 to 24 gallons. Some of these deliveries are made to the customer's location, where empty cylinders are either picked up for replenishment or filled in place. PROPANE SUPPLY AND STORAGE The Partnership has over 200 domestic and international sources of supply, including the spot market. Supplies of propane from the Partnership's sources historically have been readily available. During the year ended September 30, 2002, over 90% of the Partnership's propane supply was purchased under supply agreements with terms of 1 to 3 years. Approximately 80% of the volume purchased under those agreements was from 10 suppliers, including Dynegy Midstream Services (approximately 21%); Enterprise Products Operating LP and its affiliate Canadian Enterprises Gas Products Ltd. (approximately 20%); and BP Products North America Inc. and its affiliate BP Marketing Inc. (approximately 15%). The availability of propane supply is dependent upon, among other things, the severity of winter weather and the price and availability of competing fuels such as natural gas and crude oil. Although no assurance can be given that supplies of propane will be readily available in the future, management currently expects to be able to secure adequate supplies during fiscal year 2003. If supply from major sources were interrupted, however, the cost of procuring replacement supplies and transporting those supplies from alternative locations might be materially higher and, at least on a short-term basis, margins could be affected. Aside from Dynegy, Enterprise Products and BP, no single supplier provided more than 10% of the Partnership's total propane supply in fiscal year 2002. In certain market areas, however, some suppliers provide 70% to 80% of the Partnership's requirements. Disruptions in supply in these areas could also have an adverse impact on the Partnership's margins. During fiscal year 2002, 90% of the Partnership's supply contracts provided for pricing based upon posted prices at the time of delivery or index formulas based on the current prices established at major storage points such as Mont Belvieu, Texas, or Conway, Kansas. In addition, some agreements provided maximum and minimum seasonal purchase volume guidelines. The percentage of contract purchases, and the amount of supply contracted for at fixed prices, will vary from year to year as determined by the General Partner. The Partnership uses a number of interstate pipelines, as well as railroad tank cars, delivery trucks and barges, to transport propane from suppliers to storage and distribution facilities. The Partnership stores propane at facilities in Arizona, Pennsylvania, Virginia and several other states. -4-

Because the Partnership's profitability is sensitive to changes in wholesale propane costs, the Partnership generally seeks to pass on increases in the cost of propane to customers. There is no assurance, however, that the Partnership will always be able to pass on product cost increases fully, particularly when product costs rise rapidly. Product cost increases can be triggered by periods of severe cold weather, supply interruptions, or other unforeseen events. The General Partner has adopted supply acquisition and product price risk management practices to reduce the effect of price volatility on product costs. These practices currently include the use of summer storage, forward purchases and derivative commodity instruments such as options and propane price swaps. See "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations - Market Risk Disclosures." The following graph shows the average prices of propane on the propane spot market during the last six fiscal years at Mont Belvieu, Texas and Conway, Kansas, two major storage areas.

Propane distributors compete for customers against suppliers of electricity, fuel oil and natural gas, principally on the basis of price, service, availability and portability. Electricity is a major competitor of propane, but propane generally enjoys a -5-

competitive price advantage over electricity for space heating, water heating and cooking. Fuel oil is also a major competitor of propane and is generally less expensive than propane. Operating efficiencies and other factors such as air quality and environmental advantages, however, generally make propane competitive with fuel oil as a heating source. Furnaces and appliances that burn propane will not operate on fuel oil, and vice versa, and, therefore, a conversion from one fuel to the other requires the installation of new equipment. Propane serves as an alternative to natural gas in rural and suburban areas where natural gas is unavailable or portability of product is required. Natural gas is generally a less expensive source of energy than propane, although in areas where natural gas is available, propane is used for certain industrial and commercial applications and as a standby fuel during interruptions in natural gas service. The gradual expansion of the nation's natural gas distribution systems has resulted in the availability of natural gas in some areas that previously depended upon propane. However, natural gas pipelines are not present in many regions of the country where propane is sold for heating and cooking purposes. The retail propane industry is mature, with only modest growth in total demand for the product foreseen. Given this limited growth, we expect that year-to-year industry volumes will be principally affected by weather patterns. Therefore, the Partnership's ability to grow within the industry is dependent on its ability to acquire other retail distributors and to achieve internal growth, which includes expansion of the PPX(R) program (through which consumers can exchange an empty propane grill cylinder for a filled one) and national accounts program (through which the Partnership encourages large, multi-location propane users to enter into a supply agreement with it rather than with many small suppliers), as well as the success of its sales and marketing programs designed to attract and retain customers. The failure of the Partnership to retain and grow its customer base would have an adverse effect on its results. The domestic propane retail distribution business is highly competitive. The Partnership competes in this business with other large propane marketers, including other full-service marketers, and thousands of small independent operators. In recent years, some rural electric cooperatives and fuel oil distributors have expanded their businesses to include propane distribution and the Partnership competes with them as well. The ability to compete effectively depends on providing customer service, maintaining competitive retail prices and controlling operating expenses. Based on the most recent annual survey by the American Petroleum Institute, the 2001 domestic retail market for propane (annual sales for other than chemical uses) was approximately 11.4 billion gallons and, based on LP-GAS magazine rankings, 2001 sales volume of the ten largest propane companies (including AmeriGas Partners) represented approximately 38% of domestic retail sales. Management believes the Partnership's 2002 retail volume represents approximately 10% of the domestic retail market. In the motor fuel market, propane competes with gasoline and diesel fuel. When gasoline prices are high relative to propane, propane competes effectively. Wholesale propane distribution is a highly competitive, low margin business. Propane sales to other retail distributors and large- -6-

volume, direct-shipment industrial end users are price sensitive and frequently involve a competitive bidding process. TRADE NAMES, TRADE AND SERVICE MARKS The Partnership markets propane principally under the "AmeriGas(R)," "America's Propane Company(R)" and "PPX Prefilled Propane Xchange(R)" trade names and related service marks. UGI owns, directly or indirectly, all the right, title and interest in the "AmeriGas" and related trade and service marks. The General Partner owns all right, title and interest in the "America's Propane Company" and "PPX Prefilled Propane Xchange" trade names and related service marks. The Partnership has an exclusive (except for use by UGI, AmeriGas, Inc. and the General Partner), royalty-free license to use these names and trade and service marks. UGI and the General Partner each have the option to terminate its respective license agreement (on 12 months prior notice in the case of UGI), without penalty, if the General Partner is removed as general partner of the Partnership other than for cause. If the General Partner ceases to serve as the general partner of the Partnership for cause, the General Partner has the option to terminate its license agreement upon payment of a fee equal to the fair market value of the licensed trade names. UGI has a similar termination option, however, UGI must provide 12 months prior notice in addition to paying the fee. SEASONALITY Because many customers use propane for heating purposes, the Partnership's retail sales volume is seasonal, with approximately 57% of the Partnership's fiscal year 2002 retail sales volume and approximately 78% of its earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization occurring during the five-month peak heating season from November through March. As a result of this seasonality, sales are concentrated in the Partnership's first and second fiscal quarters (October 1 through March 31). Cash receipts are greatest during the second and third fiscal quarters when customers pay for propane purchased during the winter heating season. Sales volume for the Partnership traditionally fluctuates from year-to-year in response to variations in weather, prices, competition, customer mix and other factors, such as conservation efforts and general economic conditions. For historical information on national weather statistics, see "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations." GOVERNMENT REGULATION The Partnership is subject to various federal, state and local environmental, safety and transportation laws and regulations governing the storage, distribution and transportation of propane. These laws include, among others, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act ("CERCLA" or, the "Superfund Law"), the Clean Air Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act, the Clean Water Act and comparable state statutes. -7-

CERCLA imposes joint and several liability on certain classes of persons considered to have contributed to the release or threatened release of a "hazardous substance" into the environment without regard to fault or the legality of the original conduct. Propane is not a hazardous substance within the meaning of federal and state environmental laws. However, the Partnership owns and operates real property where such hazardous substances may exist. See Notes 1 and 13 to the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements. All states in which the Partnership operates have adopted fire safety codes that regulate the storage and distribution of propane. In some states these laws are administered by state agencies, and in others they are administered on a municipal level. The Partnership conducts training programs to help ensure that its operations are in compliance with applicable governmental regulations. With respect to general operations, NFPA Pamphlets No. 54 and No. 58, which establish a set of rules and procedures governing the safe handling of propane, or comparable regulations, have been adopted as the industry standard in a majority of the states in which the Partnership operates. Effective April 1, 2002, NFPA Pamphlet No. 58 requires portable propane cylinders to be equipped with OPD. Although NFPA 58 has not yet been adopted in all states, the Partnership complies with the OPD requirements throughout the United States. The Partnership maintains various permits under environmental laws that are necessary to operate certain of its facilities, some of which may be material to the operations of the Partnership. Management believes that the procedures currently in effect at all of its facilities for the handling, storage and distribution of propane are consistent with industry standards and are in compliance in all material respects with applicable environmental, health and safety laws. With respect to the transportation of propane by truck, the Partnership is subject to regulations promulgated under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act. These regulations cover the transportation of hazardous materials and are administered by the United States Department of Transportation ("DOT"). The Natural Gas Safety Act of 1968 required the DOT to develop and enforce minimum safety regulations for the transportation of gases by pipeline. The DOT's pipeline safety code applies to, among other things, a propane gas system which supplies 10 or more customers from a single source and a propane gas system any portion of which is located in a public place. The code requires operators of all gas systems to provide training and written instructions for employees, establish written procedures to minimize the hazards resulting from gas pipeline emergencies, and keep records of inspections and testing. -8-

EMPLOYEES The Partnership does not directly employ any persons responsible for managing or operating the Partnership. The General Partner provides these services and is reimbursed for its direct and indirect costs and expenses, including all compensation and benefit costs. At September 30, 2002, the General Partner had approximately 6,300 employees, including approximately 300 temporary and part-time employees, working on behalf of the Partnership. UGI also performs certain financial and administrative services for the General Partner on behalf of the Partnership and is reimbursed by the Partnership for its direct and indirect costs and expenses. ITEM 2. PROPERTIES As of September 30, 2002, the Partnership owned approximately 84% of its district locations. In addition, the Partnership subleases three one-million barrel underground storage caverns in Arizona to store propane and butane for itself and third parties. The Partnership also owns a 600,000 barrel refrigerated, above-ground storage facility located on leased property in California, which could be used in connection with waterborne imports or exports of propane or butane. The California facility, which the Partnership operates, is currently leased to several refiners for the storage of butane. In Virginia, the Partnership has a 50% indirect equity interest in a 476,000 barrel refrigerated, above-ground import terminal. The transportation of propane requires specialized equipment. The trucks and railroad tank cars utilized for this purpose carry specialized steel tanks that maintain the propane in a liquefied state. As of September 30, 2002, the Partnership operated a transportation fleet with the following assets: QUANTITY & EQUIPMENT TYPE % OWNED % LEASED 478 Trailers 70 30 162 Tractors 42 58 160 Railroad tank cars 0 100 3,192 Bobtail trucks 32 68 555 Rack trucks 33 67 2,505 Service and delivery trucks 34 66 Other assets owned at September 30, 2002 included approximately 1.3 million stationary storage tanks with typical capacities of 100 to 1,000 gallons and approximately 1.8 million portable propane cylinders with typical capacities of 4 to 100 gallons. The Partnership also owned approximately 8,800 large volume tanks which are used for its own storage requirements. -9-

AmeriGas OLP has debt secured by liens and mortgages on its real and personal property. AmeriGas OLP owns approximately 67% of the Partnership's property, plant and equipment. ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS There are no material legal proceedings pending involving the Partnership, any of its subsidiaries or any of their properties, and no such proceedings are known to be contemplated by governmental authorities other than claims arising in the ordinary course of the Partnership's business. ITEM 4. SUBMISSION OF MATTERS TO A VOTE OF SECURITY HOLDERS No matter was submitted to a vote of security holders during the last fiscal quarter of the 2002 fiscal year. -10-

PART II: SECURITIES AND FINANCIAL INFORMATION ITEM 5. MARKET FOR REGISTRANT'S COMMON UNITS AND RELATED SECURITY HOLDER MATTERS Each Common Unit represents a limited partner interest in the Partnership. Common Units are listed on the New York Stock Exchange, which is the principal trading market for such securities, under the symbol "APU." The following table sets forth, for the periods indicated, the high and low sale prices per Common Unit, as reported on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") Composite Transactions tape, and the amount of cash distributions paid per Common Unit. PRICE RANGE CASH 2002 FISCAL YEAR HIGH LOW DISTRIBUTION Fourth Quarter $23.7900 $17.1100 $0.55 Third Quarter 23.8500 21.3200 0.55 Second Quarter 22.7400 19.3600 0.55 First Quarter 25.3500 21.4000 0.55 PRICE RANGE CASH 2001 FISCAL YEAR HIGH LOW DISTRIBUTION Fourth Quarter $24.7500 $18.0500 $0.55 Third Quarter 24.5000 20.0500 0.55 Second Quarter 21.0000 16.6250 0.55 First Quarter 19.5000 15.0625 0.55 As of November 29, 2002, there were 1,541 record holders of the Partnership's Common Units. Effective November 18, 2002, the Partnership's subordinated units, representing limited partner interests, were converted to Common Units. The Partnership makes quarterly distributions to its partners in an aggregate amount equal to its Available Cash, as defined in the Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of AmeriGas Partners, L.P., which is filed as an exhibit to this report. Available Cash generally means, with respect to any fiscal quarter of the Partnership, all cash on hand at the end of such quarter, plus all additional cash on hand as of the date of determination resulting from borrowings subsequent to the end of such quarter, less the amount of cash reserves established by the General Partner in its reasonable discretion for future cash requirements. Certain reserves are maintained to provide for the payment of principal and interest under the terms of the Partnership's debt agreements and other reserves may be maintained to provide for the proper -11-

conduct of the Partnership's business, and to provide funds for distribution during the next four fiscal quarters. The information concerning restrictions on distributions required by Item 5 of this report is incorporated herein by reference to Notes 5 and 6 to the Partnership's Consolidated Financial Statements which are incorporated herein by reference. Prior to the termination of the subordination period effective November 18, 2002, Distributions of Available Cash to the General Partner on its subordinated units, representing limited partner interests ("Subordinated Units") were subject to the prior rights of holders of the Common Units to receive the Minimum Quarterly Distribution ("MQD") for each quarter during the subordination period, and to receive any arrearages in the distribution of the MQD on the Common Units for prior quarters during the subordination period. In December 2002, the General Partner determined that the cash-based performance and distribution requirements for termination of the subordination period were achieved in respect of the quarter ended September 30, 2002. As a result, effective November 18, 2002, the subordinated units held by the General Partner were converted to Common Units.

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS ANALYSIS OF RESULTS OF OPERATIONS The following analysis compares the Partnership's results of operations for (1) the year ended September 30, 2002 ("Fiscal 2002") with the year ended September 30, 2001 ("Fiscal 2001") and (2) Fiscal 2001 with the year ended September 30, 2000 ("Fiscal 2000"). The following table provides gallon, weather and certain financial information for the Partnership: (Dollars in millions) Year Ended September 30, --------------------------------- 2002 2001 2000 -------- -------- -------- Gallons sold (millions): Retail 932.8 820.8 771.2 Wholesale 250.0 292.8 258.0 -------- -------- -------- 1,182.8 1,113.6 1,029.2 ======== ======== ======== Revenues: Retail propane $1,070.6 $1,108.4 $ 870.3 Wholesale propane 121.1 214.6 152.7 Other 116.2 95.4 97.1 -------- -------- -------- $1,307.9 $1,418.4 $1,120.1 ======== ======== ======== Total margin (a) $ 675.8 $ 582.4 $ 491.8 EBITDA (b) $ 210.4 $ 208.6 $ 157.6 Operating income (c) $ 144.5 $ 133.8 $ 90.2 Degree days - % colder (warmer) than normal (d) (10.0)% 2.6% (13.7)% (a) Total margin represents total revenues less cost of sales. (b) EBITDA (earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, minority interests, equity investee income, and the cumulative effect of accounting changes) should not be considered as an alternative to net income (as an indicator of operating performance) or as an alternative to cash flow (as a measure of liquidity or ability to service debt obligations) and is not a measure of performance or financial condition under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. EBITDA is included to provide additional information for evaluating (1) the Partnership's ability to declare and pay the Minimum Quarterly Distribution ("MQD") and (2) its performance. The Partnership's definition of EBITDA may be different from the definition used by other companies. -14-

(c) Results for Fiscal 2002 reflect the elimination of goodwill amortization resulting from the adoption of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 142, "Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets." Pro forma operating income for Fiscal 2001 and 2000 as if the adoption of SFAS 142 had occurred as of October 1, 1999 is $157.6 million and $113.6 million, respectively. (d) Deviation from average heating degree days during the 30-year period from 1961 to 1990, based upon national weather statistics provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration ("NOAA") for 335 airports in the continental United States. FISCAL 2002 COMPARED WITH FISCAL 2001 The Partnership's Fiscal 2002 operating results were negatively impacted by significantly warmer than normal heating-season weather. Fiscal 2002 temperatures based upon heating degree day data provided by NOAA were approximately 10.0% warmer than normal and 12.3% warmer than Fiscal 2001. Notwithstanding the impact of the warmer weather on heating-related sales and the effects of a sluggish U.S. economy on commercial sales, retail gallons sold increased 112.0 million gallons principally as a result of the full-year effect of the Partnership's August 21, 2001, acquisition of Columbia Propane (see Note 3 to Consolidated Financial Statements) and, to a much lesser extent, greater volumes from our PPX(R) grill cylinder exchange business. The increase in PPX(R) sales principally reflects the effect on Fiscal 2002 grill cylinder exchanges resulting from recently enacted National Fire Protection Association ("NFPA") guidelines and, to a lesser extent, the full-year effects of Fiscal 2001 increases in the number of PPX(R) distribution outlets. The NFPA guidelines require that propane grill cylinders refilled after April 1, 2002, be fitted with overfill protection devices ("OPDs"). Retail propane revenues were $1,070.6 million in Fiscal 2002, a decrease of $37.8 million from Fiscal 2001, reflecting a $189.0 million decrease as a result of lower average selling prices partially offset by a $151.2 million increase as a result of the greater retail volumes sold. Wholesale propane revenues were $121.1 million in Fiscal 2002, a decrease of $93.5 million, reflecting a $62.0 million decrease due to lower average selling prices and a $31.5 million decrease as a result of lower wholesale volumes sold. The lower Fiscal 2002 retail and wholesale selling prices resulted from lower Fiscal 2002 propane product costs. Revenues from other sales and services increased $20.8 million primarily due to the full-year impact of Columbia Propane. Total cost of sales declined $203.9 million in Fiscal 2002 reflecting lower average propane product costs and the lower wholesale sales partially offset by the higher retail gallons sold. Total margin increased $93.4 million reflecting the full-year volume impact of the Columbia Propane acquisition and a $35.5 million increase in total margin from PPX(R) reflecting higher volumes and unit margins. PPX(R) propane unit margins in Fiscal 2002 were higher than -15-

in Fiscal 2001 reflecting increases in sales prices to fund OPD valve replacement capital expenditures on out-of-compliance grill cylinders. The extent to which this greater level of PPX(R) margin is sustainable in the future will depend upon a number of factors, including the continuing rate of OPD valve replacement and competitive market conditions. EBITDA (earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, minority interests, equity investee income, and the cumulative effect of accounting changes) increased $1.8 million in Fiscal 2002 as the significant increase in total margin was substantially offset by an $88.8 million increase in Partnership operating and administrative expenses and a decrease in other income. EBITDA of PPX(R) increased approximately $21 million in Fiscal 2002 partially offsettinG the effects of the significantly warmer winter weather on our heating-related volumes. Although EBITDA is not a measure of performance or financial condition under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, it is included in this analysis to provide additional information for evaluating the Partnership's ability to declare and pay the Minimum Quarterly Distribution of $0.55 ("MQD") and for evaluating the Partnership's performance. The Partnership's definition of EBITDA may be different from the definition of EBITDA used by other companies. The greater operating and administrative expenses in Fiscal 2002 resulted primarily from the full-year impact of the Columbia Propane acquisition and higher volume-driven PPX(R) expenses. During Fiscal 2002, the Partnership completed its planned blending of 90 Columbia Propane distribution locations with existing Partnership locations. As a result of these district consolidations and other cost reduction activities, management believes that at September 30, 2002 it achieved its anticipated $24 million reduction in annualized operating cost savings subsequent to the acquisition of Columbia Propane. Operating income increased $10.7 million, significantly more than the increase in EBITDA, principally due to the cessation of goodwill amortization in Fiscal 2002 as a result of the adoption of SFAS 142 (see Note 1 to Consolidated Financial Statements) partially offset by higher depreciation and intangible asset amortization associated with Columbia Propane and higher PPX(R) depreciation. Fiscal 2001 operating income includes $23.8 million of goodwill amortization. Interest expense increased $7.4 million principally reflecting higher Partnership long-term debt outstanding resulting from the Columbia Propane acquisition partially offset by lower Bank Credit Agreement borrowings and lower short-term interest rates. FISCAL 2001 COMPARED WITH FISCAL 2000 Retail propane gallons sold increased 49.6 million gallons (6.4%) primarily due to the effects of colder weather and the impact of acquisitions, including the August 21, 2001 acquisition of Columbia Propane. Temperatures based upon heating degree days were 2.6% colder than normal in Fiscal 2001 compared to temperatures that were 13.7% warmer than normal in Fiscal 2000. The greater acquisition and weather-related sales were reduced by customer conservation resulting from higher product costs and a slowing U.S. economy. The wholesale price of propane at Mont Belvieu, Texas, a major U.S. supply point, reached a high of 95 cents per gallon in Fiscal 2001 compared to a high of 74 cents per gallon during Fiscal 2000. -16-

Total revenues from retail propane sales increased $238.1 million reflecting a $182.1 million increase as a result of higher average selling prices and a $56.0 million increase as a result of the higher retail volumes sold. Wholesale propane revenues increased $61.9 million principally reflecting higher average prices and greater sales associated with product cost management activities. Cost of sales increased $207.7 million as a result of higher per unit propane product costs and the greater retail and wholesale volumes sold. Total margin increased $90.6 million due to the impact of higher-than-normal average retail unit margins and, to a lesser extent, the greater retail propane volumes sold. Retail propane unit margins in Fiscal 2001 benefited from gains on derivative hedge instruments and favorably priced supply arrangements. The significant increase in EBITDA in Fiscal 2001 resulted from the increase in margin partially offset by a $37.3 million increase in Partnership operating and administrative expenses. Operating and administrative expenses of the Partnership were $380.0 million in Fiscal 2001 compared to $342.7 million in Fiscal 2000. Adjusting Fiscal 2000 expenses for the impact of the Partnership's change in accounting for tank installation costs, operating and administrative expenses of the Partnership increased $44.3 million. The higher Fiscal 2001 expenses reflect (1) higher employee-related costs, including greater overtime and incentive compensation costs; (2) growth-related expenses, including the impact of Columbia Propane and other acquisitions, and expenses associated with our PPX(R) grill cylinder exchange business; and (3) higher distribution costs, including vehicle fuel and lease expense. Depreciation and amortization expense of the Partnership increased $7.4 million reflecting greater depreciation associated with acquisitions and $4.4 million of depreciation expense resulting from the change in accounting for tank installation costs. The Partnership's interest expense increased $5.6 million principally as a result of greater amounts of long-term debt outstanding. FINANCIAL CONDITION AND LIQUIDITY CAPITALIZATION AND LIQUIDITY The Partnership's debt outstanding at September 30, 2002 totaled $955.8 million. Included in this amount is $10 million outstanding under AmeriGas OLP's Revolving Credit Facility. In December 2001, AmeriGas Partners issued 1,843,047 Common Units to the public through an underwritten public offering. In January 2002, the underwriters exercised a portion of their overallotment option in the amount of 585,000 shares. The net proceeds from these Common Unit offerings, an October 2001 sale of 350,000 Common Units to the General Partner, and related capital contributions by the General Partner in order to maintain its general partner interests in the -17-

Partnership of $57.7 million were contributed to AmeriGas OLP and used to reduce Bank Credit Agreement borrowings and for working capital. The Partnership also completed a number of debt transactions during Fiscal 2002. In November 2001, AmeriGas Partners prepaid $15 million of 10.125% Senior Notes at a redemption price of 103.375%. In April 2002, AmeriGas OLP repaid $60 million of maturing First Mortgage Notes from then-existing cash balances and Revolving Credit Facility borrowings. In May 2002, AmeriGas Partners issued $40 million of Senior Notes due 2011 at an effective interest rate of 8.25%. The proceeds were contributed to AmeriGas OLP and, along with related General Partner capital contributions, used to reduce Revolving Credit Facility borrowings and for working capital and general business purposes. On December 3, 2002, after the end of Fiscal 2002, AmeriGas Partners issued $88 million of 8.875% Senior Notes due 2011 at an effective interest rate of 8.30%. The net proceeds will be used to redeem in January 2003 the remaining $85 million of 10.125% Senior Notes of AmeriGas Partners at a redemption price of 102.25%. In August 2002, AmeriGas OLP amended and restated its Bank Credit Agreement. AmeriGas OLP's Bank Credit Agreement expires October 1, 2003 and consists of (1) a $100 million Revolving Credit Facility and (2) a $75 million Acquisition Facility. The Revolving Credit Facility may be used for working capital and general purposes of AmeriGas OLP. There was $10 million outstanding under this facility at September 30, 2002. Issued and outstanding letters of credit under the Revolving Credit Facility, which reduce the amount available for borrowings, totaled $19.8 million at September 30, 2002. AmeriGas OLP's short-term borrowing needs are seasonal and are typically greatest during the fall and winter heating-season months due to the need to fund higher levels of working capital. AmeriGas OLP may borrow under its Acquisition Facility to finance the purchase of propane businesses or propane business assets. In addition to the $100 million available under the Revolving Credit Facility, the Bank Credit Agreement allows up to $30 million of the Acquisition Facility to be used for working capital purposes. There were no loans outstanding under the Acquisition Facility at September 30, 2002. AmeriGas OLP could borrow up to $67.7 million under the Acquisition Facility based upon eligible propane business and asset expenditures made through September 30, 2002. AmeriGas OLP also has a credit agreement with the General Partner to borrow up to $20 million on an unsecured, subordinated basis, for working capital and general purposes. UGI has agreed to contribute up to $20 million to the General Partner to fund such borrowings. AmeriGas Partners also has debt and equity shelf registration statements with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). The Partnership must maintain certain financial ratios in order to borrow under the Bank Credit Agreement including a minimum interest coverage ratio and a maximum debt to EBITDA ratio. The Partnership's ratios calculated as of September 30, 2002 permit it to borrow up to the maximum amount available. For a more detailed discussion of the Partnership's credit facilities, see Note 6 to Consolidated Financial Statements. Based upon existing cash balances, cash expected to be generated from operations, borrowings available under its Bank Credit -18-

Agreement, and the expected refinancing of its maturing long-term debt, the Partnership's management believes that the Partnership will be able to meet its anticipated contractual commitments and projected cash needs in Fiscal 2003. PARTNERSHIP DISTRIBUTIONS Since its formation in 1995, the Partnership has paid the MQD on all limited partner units outstanding. The amount of Available Cash needed annually to pay the MQD on all units and the general partner interests in Fiscal 2002, 2001 and 2000 was approximately $109 million, $99 million and $94 million, respectively. Based upon the number of Partnership units outstanding on September 30, 2002, the amount of Available Cash needed annually to pay the MQD on all units and the general partner interests is approximately $111 million. A reasonable proxy for the amount of cash available for distribution that is generated by the Partnership can be calculated by subtracting from the Partnership's EBITDA (1) cash interest expense and (2) capital expenditures needed to maintain operating capacity. Partnership distributable cash flow as calculated under this method for Fiscal 2002, 2001 and 2000 is as follows: Year Ended September 30, 2002 2001 2000 - ------------------------ ---- ---- ---- (Millions of dollars) EBITDA $ 210.4 $ 208.6 $ 157.6 Cash interest expense (a) (88.5) (82.0) (76.7) Maintenance capital expenditures (20.7) (17.8) (11.6) ------- ------- ------- Distributable cash flow $ 101.2 $ 108.8 $ 69.3 ------- ------- ------- (a) Interest expense adjusted for noncash items. Although distributable cash flow is a reasonable estimate of the amount of cash generated by the Partnership, it does not reflect, among other things, the impact of changes in working capital, which can significantly affect cash available for distribution, and is not a measure of performance or financial condition under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States but provides additional information for evaluating the Partnership's ability to declare and pay the MQD. The Partnership's definition of distributable cash flow may be different from the definition used by other companies. Although the levels of distributable cash flow in Fiscal 2002 and 2000 were less than the full MQD, other sources of cash, including cash from equity offerings and borrowings, was more than sufficient to permit the Partnership to pay the full MQD. The ability of the Partnership to pay the MQD on all units depends upon a number of factors. These factors include (1) the level of Partnership earnings; (2) the cash needs of the Partnership's operations (including cash needed for maintaining and increasing operating capacity); (3) changes in operating working capital; and (4) the Partnership's ability to borrow under its Bank Credit Agreement, to refinance maturing debt and to increase its long-term debt. Some of these factors are affected by conditions beyond our control including weather, competition in markets we serve, the cost of propane and changes in capital market conditions. -19-

CONVERSION OF SUBORDINATED UNITS Pursuant to the Agreement of Limited Partnership of AmeriGas Partners, the 9.9 million AmeriGas Partners Subordinated Units held by the General Partner as of September 30, 2002 were eligible to convert to Common Units on the first day after the record date for any quarter ending on or after March 31, 2000 in respect of which certain cash-based performance and distribution requirements were met. In December 2002, the General Partner determined that the cash-based performance and distribution requirements in respect of the quarter ended September 30, 2002 had been met and, as a result, the remaining 9.9 million Subordinated Units held by the General Partner were converted to Common Units effective November 18, 2002. The conversion of the Subordinated Units did not result in an increase in the number of AmeriGas Partners limited partner units outstanding. CONTRACTUAL CASH OBLIGATIONS AND COMMITMENTS The following table presents significant contractual cash obligations under agreements existing as of September 30, 2002 (in millions). Fiscal Fiscal 2003 & 2004 2005 & 2006 Thereafter Total ----------- ----------- ---------- -------- Long-term debt $ 112.6 $ 168.1 $ 665.1 $ 945.8 Operating leases 67.4 49.2 60.0 176.6 -------- -------- -------- -------- Total $ 180.0 $ 217.3 $ 725.1 $1,122.4 ======== ======== ======== ======== CASH FLOWS OPERATING ACTIVITIES. Cash provided by operating activities totaled $159.5 million in Fiscal 2002 compared with $153.0 million in Fiscal 2001. Changes in operating working capital during Fiscal 2002 provided $30.3 million of operating cash flow compared to $22.3 million of such cash flow in Fiscal 2001. INVESTING ACTIVITIES. We spent $53.5 million for property, plant and equipment (including maintenance capital expenditures of $20.7 million) during Fiscal 2002 compared with $37.9 million (including maintenance capital expenditures of $17.8 million) during Fiscal 2001. The increase in capital expenditures reflects higher expenditures for PPX(R), principally grill cylinder OPDs to comply with NFPA guidelines, and expenditures associated with the addition of the Columbia Propane Businesses. Proceeds from asset sales were higher in Fiscal 2002 reflecting, in part, disposals of Columbia Propane excess assets. FINANCING ACTIVITIES. During Fiscal 2002 and 2001, we declared and paid the MQD on all Common and Subordinated units and the general partner interests. During Fiscal 2002, we sold 350,000 Common Units to the General Partner, and 2,428,047 Common Units to the public in conjunction with an underwritten public offering. The combined net proceeds of these sales and related capital contributions from the General Partner of $57.7 million were contributed to -20-

AmeriGas OLP and used to reduce Bank Credit Agreement borrowings and for working capital. During Fiscal 2002, AmeriGas Partners redeemed $15 million of its 10.125% Senior Notes and AmeriGas OLP repaid $20 million of borrowings outstanding under its Acquisition Facility and $60 million of maturing First Mortgage Notes. Also during Fiscal 2002, AmeriGas Partners issued $40 million of 8.875% Senior Notes and contributed the proceeds to AmeriGas OLP to reduce indebtedness under its Revolving Credit Facility and for working capital and general business purposes. CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES In response to the SEC's Release No. 33-8040, "Cautionary Advice Regarding Disclosure About Critical Accounting Policies," the Partnership has identified the following critical accounting policies that are most important to the portrayal of the Partnership's financial condition and results of operations. The following policies require management's most subjective or complex judgments, as a result of the need to make estimates regarding matters that are inherently uncertain. LITIGATION ACCRUALS. The Partnership is involved in litigation regarding pending claims and legal actions that arise in the normal course of its business. In accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, the Partnership establishes reserves for pending claims and legal actions when it is probable that a liability exists and the amount or range of amounts can be reasonably estimated. Reasonable estimates involve management judgments based on a broad range of information and prior experience. These judgments are reviewed quarterly as more information is received and the amounts reserved are updated as necessary. Such estimated reserves may differ materially from the actual liability, and such reserves may change materially as more information becomes available and estimated reserves are adjusted. DEPRECIATION AND AMORTIZATION OF LONG-LIVED ASSETS. We compute depreciation on property, plant and equipment on a straight-line basis over estimated useful lives generally ranging from two to 40 years. We also use amortization methods and determine asset values of intangible assets other than goodwill using reasonable assumptions and projections. Changes in the estimated useful lives of property, plant and equipment and changes in intangible asset amortization methods or values could have a material effect on our results of operations. -21-

MARKET RISK DISCLOSURES Our primary financial market risks include commodity prices for propane and interest rates on borrowings. The risk associated with fluctuations in the prices the Partnership pays for propane are principally a result of market forces reflecting changes in supply and demand for propane and other energy commodities. The Partnership's profitability is sensitive to changes in propane supply costs, and the Partnership generally attempts to pass on increases in such costs to customers. The Partnership may not, however, always be able to pass through product cost increases fully, particularly when product costs rise rapidly. In order to reduce the volatility of the Partnership's propane market price risk, we use contracts for the forward purchase or sale of propane, propane fixed-price supply agreements, and over-the-counter derivative commodity instruments including price swap and option contracts. Over-the-counter derivative commodity instruments utilized by the Partnership to hedge forecasted purchases of propane are generally settled at expiration of the contract. In order to minimize credit risk associated with derivative commodity contracts, we carefully monitor established credit limits with the contract counterparties. Although we use derivative financial and commodity instruments to reduce market price risk associated with forecasted transactions, we do not use derivative financial and commodity instruments for speculative or trading purposes. The Partnership has both fixed-rate and variable-rate debt. Changes in interest rates impact the cash flows of variable-rate debt but generally do not impact its fair value. Conversely, changes in interest rates impact the fair value of fixed-rate debt but do not impact their cash flows. Our variable rate debt includes borrowings under AmeriGas OLP's Bank Credit Agreement. These debt agreements have interest rates that are generally indexed to short-term market interest rates. At September 30, 2002 and 2001, combined borrowings outstanding under these agreements totaled $10 million and $20 million, respectively. Based upon weighted average borrowings outstanding under these agreements during Fiscal 2002 and Fiscal 2001, an increase in short-term interest rates of 100 basis points (1%) would have increased our interest expense by $0.1 million and $0.9 million, respectively. The remainder of our debt outstanding is subject to fixed rates of interest. A 100 basis point increase in market interest rates would result in decreases in the fair value of this fixed rate -22-

debt of $41.2 million and $47.5 million at September 30, 2002 and 2001, respectively. A 100 basis point decrease in market interest rates would result in increases in the fair market value of this debt of $44.1 million and $51.2 million at September 30, 2002 and 2001, respectively. Our long-term debt is typically issued at fixed rates of interest based upon market rates for debt having similar terms and credit ratings. As these long-term debt issues mature, we may refinance such debt with new debt having interest rates reflecting then-current market conditions. This debt may have an interest rate that is more or less than the refinanced debt. In order to reduce interest rate risk associated with near-term forecasted issuances of fixed-rate debt, from time to time we enter into interest rate protection agreements. The following table summarizes the fair values of unsettled market risk sensitive derivative instruments held at September 30, 2002 and 2001. It also includes the changes in fair value that would result if there were an adverse change in (1) the market price of propane of 10 cents per gallon and (2) interest rates on ten-year U.S. treasury notes of 100 basis points: Change in Fair Value Fair Value ---------- ---------- (Millions of dollars) September 30, 2002 Propane commodity price risk $ 9.8 $(10.9) Interest rate risk (2.8) (4.4) September 30, 2001 Propane commodity price risk $(10.5) $(18.8) Interest rate risk (3.0) (4.2) Because the Partnership's derivative instruments generally qualify as hedges under SFAS 133, we expect that changes in the fair value of derivative instruments used to manage propane price or interest rate risk would be substantially offset by gains or losses on the associated underlying transactions. RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS The Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") recently issued SFAS No. 143, "Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations" ("SFAS 143"); SFAS No. 144, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets" ("SFAS 144"); SFAS No. 145, "Rescission of FASB Statements No. 4, 44, and 64, Amendment of FASB Statement No. 13, and Technical Corrections" ("SFAS 145"); and SFAS No. 146, "Accounting for Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities" ("SFAS 146"). -23-

SFAS 143 addresses financial accounting and reporting for legal obligations associated with the retirement of tangible long-lived assets and the associated asset retirement costs. SFAS 143 requires that the fair value of a liability for an asset retirement obligation be recognized in the period in which it is incurred with a corresponding increase in the carrying value of the related asset. Entities shall subsequently charge the retirement cost to expense using a systematic and rational method over the related asset's useful life and adjust the fair value of the liability resulting from the passage of time through charges to operating expense. We adopted SFAS 143 effective October 1, 2002. The adoption of SFAS 143 did not have a material effect on our financial position or results of operations. SFAS 144 supersedes SFAS No. 121, "Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to be Disposed Of" ("SFAS 121"), and the accounting and reporting provisions of APB Opinion No. 30, "Reporting the Results of Operations - Reporting the Effects of Disposal of a Segment of a Business, and Extraordinary, Unusual and Infrequently Occurring Events and Transactions," as it relates to the disposal of a segment of a business. SFAS 144 establishes a single accounting model for long-lived assets to be disposed of based upon the framework of SFAS 121, and resolves significant implementation issues of SFAS 121. We adopted SFAS 144 effective October 1, 2002. The adoption of SFAS 144 did not affect our financial position or results of operations. SFAS 145 rescinded SFAS No. 4, "Reporting Gains and Losses from Extinguishment of Debt" (an amendment of APB Opinion No. 30) ("SFAS 4"), effective May 15, 2002. SFAS 4 had required that material gains and losses on extinguishment of debt be classified as an extraordinary item. Under SFAS 145, it is less likely that a gain or loss on extinguishment of debt would be classified as an extraordinary item in our Consolidated Statement of Income. Among other things, SFAS 145 also amends SFAS No. 13, "Accounting for Leases," to require that certain lease modifications that have economic effects similar to sale-leaseback transactions be accounted for in the same manner as sale-leaseback transactions. The provisions of SFAS 145 relating to leases became effective for transactions occurring after May 15, 2002. The adoption of SFAS 145 did not affect our financial position or results of operations. SFAS 146 addresses accounting for costs associated with exit or disposal activities and nullifies Emerging Issues Task Force ("EITF") No. 94-3, "Liability Recognition for Certain Employee Termination Benefits and Other Costs to Exit an Activity." Generally, SFAS 146 requires that a liability for costs associated with an exit or disposal activity, including contract termination costs, employee termination benefits and other associated costs, be recognized when the liability is incurred. Under EITF No. 94-3, a liability was recognized at the date of an entity's commitment to an exit plan. SFAS 146 will be effective for disposal activities initiated after December 31, 2002. FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS -24-

Information contained above in this Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and elsewhere in this Report on Form 10-K may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Such statements use forward-looking words such as "believe," "plan," "anticipate," "continue," "estimate," "expect," "may," "will," or other similar words. These statements discuss plans, strategies, events or developments that we expect or anticipate will or may occur in the future. A forward-looking statement may include a statement of the assumptions or bases underlying the forward-looking statement. We believe that we have chosen these assumptions or bases in good faith and that they are reasonable. However, we caution you that actual results almost always vary from assumed facts or bases, and the differences between actual results and assumed facts or bases can be material, depending on the circumstances. When considering forward-looking statements, you should keep in mind the following important factors which could affect our future results and could cause those results to differ materially from those expressed in our forward-looking statements: (1) adverse weather conditions resulting in reduced demand; (2) price volatility and availability of propane, and the capacity to transport to market areas; (3) changes in laws and regulations, including safety, tax and accounting matters; (4) large supplier, counterparty or customer defaults, (5) competitive pressures from the same and alternative energy sources; (6) failure to acquire new customers thereby reducing or limiting any increase in revenues; (7) liability for environmental claims; (8) customer conservation measures and improvements in energy efficiency and technology resulting in reduced demand; (9) adverse labor relations; (10) inability to make business acquisitions on economically acceptable terms resulting in failure to acquire new customers thereby limiting any increase in revenues; (11) liability for personal injury and property damage arising from explosions and other catastrophic events, including acts of terrorism, resulting from operating hazards and risks incidental to transporting, storing and distributing propane, butane and ammonia, including liability in excess of insurance coverage; (12) political, regulatory and economic conditions in the United States and in foreign countries; and (13) interest rate fluctuations and other capital market conditions. These factors are not necessarily all of the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any of our forward-looking statements. Other unknown or unpredictable factors could also have material adverse effects on future results. We undertake no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statement whether as a result of new information or future events. -25-

In addition, the Audit Committee acts on behalf of the Board of Directors in fulfilling its responsibility to: - oversee the financial reporting process and the adequacy of controls relative to financial and business risk; - monitor the independence of the Partnership's independent accountants and the performance of the independent accountants and internal audit staff; - provide a means for open communication among the independent accountants, management, internal audit staff and the Board of Directors; and - recommend to the Board of Directors the engagement of the independent accountants to conduct the annual audit of the Partnership's consolidated financial statements.

Greenberg and Bovaird participate in the UGI Annual Bonus Plan. All other Named Executives participate in the AmeriGas Propane, Inc. Annual Bonus Plan. Awards under both Plans are for the year reported, regardless of the year paid. Awards under both Plans are based on the achievement of pre-determined business and/or financial performance objectives which support business plans and goals. Bonus opportunities vary by position and currently range from 0 to 133% of base salary for Mr. Bissell, 0 to 184% of base salary for Mr. Greenberg, 0 to 104% of base salary for Mr. Bovaird, 0 to 76% of base salary for Mr. Knauss, and 0 to 95% of base salary for Mr. Grady. (2) Amounts represent tax payment reimbursements for certain benefits and, for Mr. Bovaird, above-market interest on deferred compensation. (3) Effective January 1, 2002, the Board of Directors of AmeriGas Propane, Inc. approved phantom performance-contingent restricted Common Unit awards ("Restricted Units") to the Named Executives, other than Messrs. Greenberg and Bovaird, under the 2000 AmeriGas Propane, Inc. Long-Term Incentive Plan. Distribution equivalents will accumulate on the Restricted Units awarded. These distributions will also be leveraged based on performance described below and paid out when the restriction period on the Restricted Units ends on December 31, 2004. The performance requirement is evidence of AmeriGas' meaningful progress toward the achievement of its strategic objectives during 2002 including the Partnership's acquisition integration, productivity improvement, internal growth, and cash generation goals. The actual -32-

amount of the award may be higher or lower than the original grant, or even zero, based on AmeriGas' achievement of its objectives, with a maximum payout potential of 125% of the original award. Effective January 1, 2002, the Board of Directors of UGI Corporation approved three phantom performance-contingent restricted stock awards ("Restricted Shares") to the Messrs. Greenberg and Bovaird under the UGI Corporation 2000 Stock Incentive Plan. Dividend equivalents will accumulate on the phantom shares awarded. These dividends will also be leveraged based on TSR performance described below and distributed when the restriction period on the phantom shares ends on December 31, 2004. Each award has a separate performance period as follows: January 1, 2002 through December 31, 2002, January 1, 2002 through December 31, 2003, and January 1, 2002 through December 31, 2004. The restriction period for all three awards will end on December 31, 2004. The performance requirement is that the Company's Total Shareholder Return (TSR) during the relevant performance period equals the median of a peer group. The peer group is the group of companies that comprises the S&P Utilities Index. The share price used for determining the stock price at the beginning and the end of each performance period will be the average price for the 90-day period preceding each December 31st. The actual amount of the award may be higher or lower than the original grant, or even zero, based on the Company's TSR percentile rank relative to the companies in the S&P Utilities Index. The maximum payout potential is 200% of the original award. At the Company's discretion, awards of phantom performance-contingent restrictive stock may be paid out in stock, cash or a combination of stock and cash. Awards of dividend equivalents will be paid in cash. The dollar values shown in the restricted stock awards column of the table above for all years represent the aggregate value of each award on the date of grant, determined by multiplying the number of Common Units awarded by the closing price of AmeriGas Partners Common Units, or in the case of Messrs. Greenberg and Bovaird, the closing price of UGI Common Stock on the New York Stock Exchange on the effective dates of the respective grants. Based on the closing unit price of Common Units of AmeriGas Partners, L.P. on the New York Stock Exchange on September 30, 2002, Mr. Bissell's 16,150 Restricted Units had a market value of $374,034; Mr. Grady's 10,225 Restricted Units had a market value of $236,811; and Mr. Knauss' 8,350 Restricted Units had a market value of $193,386. Based on the closing stock price of UGI Common Stock on the New York Stock Exchange on September 30, 2002, Mr. Greenberg's 128,000 Restricted Shares had a market value of $4,652,800; and Mr. Bovaird's 15,000 Restricted Shares had a market value of $545,250. (4) The amounts represent contributions by the General Partner or UGI in accordance with the provisions of the AmeriGas Propane, Inc. Employee Savings Plan (the "AmeriGas Employee Savings Plan"), the UGI Utilities, Inc. Employee Savings Plan (the "UGI Employee Savings Plan"), allocations under the UGI Corporation Senior Executive Retirement Plan (the "UGI Executive Retirement Plan"), and/or allocations under the AmeriGas Propane, Inc.

(5) Mr. Greenberg was President and Chief Executive Officer of AmeriGas Propane, Inc. from July 1996 to July 2000. Compensation reported for Messrs. Greenberg and Bovaird is attributable to their respective positions of Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, and Vice President and General Counsel of UGI Corporation. Compensation for these individuals is also reported in the UGI Proxy Statement for the 2003 Annual Meeting of Shareholders and is not additive. The General Partner does not compensate Mr. Greenberg or Mr. Bovaird. -33-

Knauss 8,000 1.78% $30.600 12/31/2011 $40,930 (1) A total of 448,250 options were granted to employees and executive officers of UGI and its subsidiaries, including the General Partner, during fiscal year 2002 under the UGI 1992 Non-Qualified Stock Option Plan, the UGI 2000 Stock Incentive Plan and the UGI 2002 Non-Qualified Stock Option Plan. Under each Plan, the option exercise price is not less than 100% of the fair market value of UGI's Common Stock on the date of grant. All options will vest at the rate of 33% per year on the anniversary of the grant date. Options are nontransferable and generally exercisable only while the optionee is employed by UGI or an affiliate. Options are subject to adjustment in the event of recapitalizations, stock splits, mergers, and other similar corporate transactions affecting UGI's Common Stock. (2) Based on the Black-Scholes options pricing model. The assumptions used in calculating the grant date present value are as follows: - - Three years of closing monthly stock price and dividend observations were used to calculate the stock volatility and dividend yield assumptions. - - Stock volatility 29.10% - - Stock's dividend yield 6.70% - - Length of option term 10 years - - Annualized risk-free interest rate 5.54% - - Discount of risk of forfeiture 0% per year All options were granted at fair market value. The actual value, if any, the executive may realize will depend on the excess of the stock price on the date the option is exercised over the exercise price. There is no assurance that the value realized by the executive will be at or near the value estimated by the Black-Scholes model. -35-

These amounts include pension benefits, if any, to which a participant may be entitled as a result of participation in a pension plan of a subsidiary during previous periods of employment. The amounts shown do not take into account exclusion of up to 35% of the estimated primary Social Security benefit. The Retirement Plan provides a minimum benefit equal to 25% of a participant's final 12-months' earnings, reduced proportionately for less than 15 years of credited service at retirement. The minimum Retirement Plan benefit is not subject to Social Security offset. (3) The maximum benefit under the Retirement Plan and the UGI Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan is equal to 60% of a participant's highest consecutive 12 months' earnings during the last 120 months. SEVERANCE PAY PLAN FOR SENIOR EXECUTIVE EMPLOYEES Named Executives Employed by UGI Corporation. The UGI Corporation Senior Executive Employee Severance Pay Plan (the "UGI Severance Plan") assists certain senior level employees of UGI, including Messrs. Greenberg and Bovaird, in the event their employment is terminated without fault on their part. Benefits are payable to a senior executive covered by the UGI Severance Plan if the senior executive's employment is involuntarily terminated for any reason other than for cause or as a result of the senior executive's death or disability. The UGI Severance Plan provides for cash payments equal to a participant's compensation for a period of time ranging from 3 months to 15 months (30 months in the case of -37-

Mr. Greenberg), depending on length of service. In addition, a participant receives the cash equivalent of his or her target bonus under the Annual Bonus Plan, pro-rated for the number of months served in the fiscal year. However, if the termination occurs in the last two months of the fiscal year, the Chief Executive Officer has the discretion to determine whether the participant will receive a pro-rated target bonus, or the actual annual bonus which would have been paid after the end of the fiscal year, assuming that the participant's entire bonus was contingent on meeting the applicable financial performance goal. Certain employee benefits are continued under the Plan for a period of up to 15 months (30 months in the case of Mr. Greenberg). UGI has the option to pay a participant the cash equivalent of those employee benefits. In order to receive benefits under the UGI Severance Plan, a senior executive is required to execute a release which discharges UGI and its subsidiaries from liability for any claims the senior executive may have against any of them, other than claims for amounts or benefits due to the executive under any plan, program or contract provided by or entered into with UGI or its subsidiaries. The senior executive is also required to cooperate in attending to matters pending at the time of his or her termination of employment. Named Executives Employed by AmeriGas Propane. The AmeriGas Propane, Inc. Executive Employee Severance Pay Plan (the "AmeriGas Severance Plan") assists certain senior level employees of the General Partner including Messrs. Bissell, Grady and Knauss in the event their employment is terminated without fault on their part. Specified benefits are payable to a senior executive covered by the AmeriGas Severance Plan if the senior executive's employment is involuntarily terminated for any reason other than for cause or as a result of the senior executive's death or disability. The AmeriGas Severance Plan provides for cash payments equal to a participant's compensation for three months (6 months in the case of the Chief Executive Officer). In addition, a participant receives the cash equivalent of his or her target bonus under the Annual Bonus Plan, pro-rated for the number of months served in the fiscal year. However, if the termination occurs in the last two months of the fiscal year, the Chief Executive Officer has the discretion to determine whether the participant will receive a pro-rated target bonus, or the actual annual bonus which would have been paid after the end of the fiscal year, assuming that the participant's entire bonus was contingent on meeting the applicable financial performance goal. The Plan also provides for separation pay equal to one day's pay per month of service, not to exceed 12 months' compensation. Minimum separation pay ranges from six to twelve months' base salary, depending on the executive's employment grade. Certain employee benefits are continued under the Plan for a period not exceeding 15 months (18 months in the case of the Chief Executive Officer). This period is called the "Employee Benefit Period." The General Partner has the option to pay a participant the cash equivalent of those employee benefits. In order to receive benefits under the AmeriGas Severance Plan, a senior executive is required to execute a release which discharges the General Partner and its affiliates from liability for any claims the senior executive may have against any of them, other than claims for amounts or benefits due to the executive under any plan, program or contract provided by or entered into -38-

with the General Partner or its affiliates. The senior executive is also required to cooperate in attending to matters pending at the time of his or her termination of employment. CHANGE OF CONTROL ARRANGEMENTS Named Executives Employed By UGI Corporation. Messrs. Greenberg and Bovaird each have an agreement with UGI Corporation (the "Agreement") which provides certain benefits in the event of a change of control. The Agreements operate independently of the UGI Severance Plan, continue through July 2004, and are automatically extended in one-year increments thereafter unless, prior to a change of control, UGI terminates an Agreement. In the absence of a change of control, each Agreement will terminate when, for any reason, the executive terminates his or her employment with UGI or its subsidiaries. A change of control is generally deemed to occur if: (i) any person (other than the executive, his or her affiliates and associates, UGI or any of its subsidiaries, any employee benefit plan of UGI or any of its subsidiaries, or any person or entity organized, appointed, or established by UGI or its subsidiaries for or pursuant to the terms of any such employee benefit plan), together with all affiliates and associates of such person, acquires securities representing 20% or more of either (x) the then outstanding shares of common stock of UGI or (y) the combined voting power of UGI's then outstanding voting securities; (ii) individuals who at the beginning of any 24-month period constitute the Board of Directors (the "Incumbent Board") and any new director whose election by the Board, or nomination for election by UGI's shareholders, was approved by a vote of at least a majority of the Incumbent Board, cease for any reason to constitute a majority thereof; (iii) UGI is reorganized, merged or consolidated with or into, or sells all or substantially all of its assets to, another corporation in a transaction in which former shareholders of UGI do not own more than 50% of the outstanding common stock and the combined voting power, respectively, of the then outstanding voting securities of the surviving or acquiring corporation after the transaction; or (iv) UGI is liquidated or dissolved. Severance benefits are payable under the Agreements if there is a termination of the executive's employment without cause at any time within three years after a change of control. In addition, following a change of control, the executive may elect to terminate his or her employment without loss of severance benefits in certain specified contingencies, including termination of officer status; a significant adverse change in authority, duties, responsibilities or compensation; the failure of UGI to comply with and satisfy any of the terms of the Agreement; or a substantial relocation or excessive travel requirements. An executive who is terminated with rights to severance compensation under an Agreement will be entitled to receive an amount equal to 1.0 or 1.5 (2.5 in the case of Mr. Greenberg) times his or her average total cash remuneration for the preceding five calendar years. If the severance compensation payable under the Agreement, either alone or together with other payments to an executive, would constitute "excess parachute payments," as defined in Section -39-

280G of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), the executive will also receive an amount to satisfy the executive's additional tax burden. Named Executives Employed by the General Partner. Messrs. Bissell, Grady and Knauss each have an agreement with the General Partner (the "Agreement") which provides certain benefits in the event of a change of control. The Agreements operate independently of the AmeriGas Severance Plan, continue through July 2004, and are automatically extended in one-year increments thereafter unless, prior to a change of control, the General Partner terminates an Agreement. In the absence of a change of control, each Agreement will terminate when, for any reason, the executive terminates his or her employment with the General Partner or any of its subsidiaries. A change of control is generally deemed to occur if: (i) a change of control of UGI, as defined above, occurs, (ii) the General Partner, AmeriGas Partners or the Operating Partnership is reorganized, merged or consolidated with or into, or sells all or substantially all of its assets to, another corporation or partnership in a transaction in which the former shareholders of the General Partner, or former limited partners, as the case may be, do not own more than 50% of the outstanding common stock and combined voting power, or the outstanding common units of such partnership, after the transaction, (iii) the General Partner, AmeriGas Partners or the Operating Partnership is liquidated or dissolved, (iv) UGI and its subsidiaries fail to own more than fifty percent of the general partnership interests of AmeriGas Partners or the Operating Partnership, (v) UGI and its subsidiaries fail to own more than fifty percent of the combined voting power of the General Partner's then outstanding voting securities, or (vi) AmeriGas Propane, Inc. is removed as the general partner of AmeriGas Partners by vote of the limited partners, or AmeriGas Propane, Inc. is removed as the general partner of AmeriGas Partners or the Operating Partnership as a result of judicial or administrative proceedings. Severance benefits are payable under the Agreements if there is a termination of the executive's employment without cause at any time within three years after a change of control. In addition, following a change of control, the executive may elect to terminate his or her employment without loss of severance benefits in certain specified contingencies, including termination of officer status; a significant adverse change in authority, duties, responsibilities or compensation; the failure of the General Partner to comply with and satisfy any of the terms of the Agreement; or a substantial relocation or excessive travel requirements. An executive who is terminated with rights to severance compensation under an Agreement will be entitled to receive an amount equal to 1.0 (1.5 in the case of Mr. Bissell) times his or her average total cash remuneration for the preceding five calendar years. If the severance compensation payable under the Agreement, either alone or together with other payments to an executive, would constitute "excess parachute payments," as defined in Section 280G of the Code, the executive will also receive an amount to satisfy the executive's additional tax burden. -40-

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS The General Partner employs persons responsible for managing and operating the Partnership. The Partnership reimburses the General Partner for the direct and indirect costs of providing these services, including all compensation and benefit costs. For fiscal year 2002, these costs totaled approximately $262.0 million. The Operating Partnership has a revolving line of credit up to a maximum of $20 million from the General Partner available until October 1, 2003, the termination date of the Revolving Credit Facility. Any loans under this agreement will be unsecured and subordinated to all senior debt of the Operating Partnership. The commitment fees for this line of credit are computed on the same basis as the facility fees under the Revolving Credit Facility, and totaled $70,972 in fiscal year 2002. Interest rates are based on one-month offshore interbank borrowing rates. The interest rate for a recent Credit Facility borrowing from October 24, 2002 to October 25, 2002 was 4.75%. See Note 6 to the Partnership's Consolidated Financial Statements, which are filed as an exhibit to this report. The Partnership and the General Partner also have extensive, ongoing relationships with UGI and its affiliates. UGI performs certain financial and administrative services for the General Partner on behalf of the Partnership. UGI does not receive a fee for such services, but is reimbursed for all direct and indirect expenses incurred in connection with providing these services, including all compensation and benefit costs. A wholly owned subsidiary of UGI provides the Partnership with excess automobile liability insurance with limits of $500,000 per occurrence and in the aggregate excess of $500,000 per occurrence. Another wholly owned subsidiary of UGI leases office space to the General Partner for its headquarters staff. In addition, a UGI master policy provides accidental death and business travel and accident insurance coverage for employees of the General Partner. The General Partner is billed directly by the insurer for this coverage. As discussed under "Business--Trade Names; Trade and Service Marks," UGI and the General Partner have licensed the trade names "AmeriGas" and "America's Propane Company" and the related service marks and trademark to the Partnership on a royalty-free basis. Finally, the Partnership obtains management information services from the General Partner, and reimburses the General Partner for its direct and indirect expenses related to those services. The rental payments and insurance premiums charged to the Partnership by UGI -45-

and its affiliates are comparable to amounts charged by unaffiliated parties. In fiscal year 2002, the Partnership paid UGI and its affiliates, including the General Partner, approximately $7.8 million for the services and expense reimbursements referred to in this paragraph. Subsequent to the Columbia Propane acquisition, the Partnership purchases propane on behalf of Atlantic Energy, Inc. ("Atlantic Energy"), a 50% owned joint venture with Conoco, Inc. Atlantic Energy reimburses AmeriGas OLP for its purchases plus interest at the rate of 8% as Atlantic Energy sells such propane to third parties or to the Partnership itself. The total dollar value of propane purchased on behalf of Atlantic Energy was $11,370,000 and $1,875,000 in fiscal year 2002 and 2001, respectively. Purchases of propane by AmeriGas OLP from Atlantic Energy during fiscal year 2002 and 2001 totaled $12,131,000 and $1,132,000 respectively. AmeriGas OLP also provides other services to Atlantic Energy including marketing, billing, accounting, insurance and other administrative services and is reimbursed for the related costs. In addition, AmeriGas OLP enters into product cost hedging contracts on behalf of Atlantic Energy. When these contracts are settled, AmeriGas OLP is reimbursed the cost of any losses by, or distributes the proceeds of any gains to, Atlantic Energy. Conoco Inc. has agreed to indemnify AmeriGas OLP for one-half of any losses arising from its hedging activities on behalf of Atlantic Energy to the extent that AmeriGas OLP is not indemnified for such losses by Atlantic Energy. The highest amounts due from Atlantic Energy during fiscal year 2002 and at November 30, 2002 were $9,227,000 and $6,697,985 respectively. ITEM 14. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES An evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Partnership's disclosure controls and procedures as of December 20, 2002 was carried out by the General Partner under the supervision and with the participation of the General Partner's management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Partnership's disclosure controls and procedures have been designed and are being operated in a manner that provides reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed by the Partnership in reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms. A controls system, no matter how well designed and operated, cannot provide absolute assurance that the objectives of the controls system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within an entity have been detected. Subsequent to the date of the most recent evaluation of the Partnership's internal controls, there were no significant changes in the Partnership's internal controls or in other factors that could significantly affect the internal controls, including any corrective actions with regard to significant deficiencies and material weaknesses. -46-

If the Notice of Borrowing fails to specify the duration of the Interest Period for any Borrowing comprised of Eurodollar Rate Loans, such Interest Period shall be one month. (b) The Agent will promptly notify each Bank of its receipt of any Notice of Borrowing (or a deemed notice of Borrowing under Section 2.16(b))and of the amount of such Bank's Pro Rata Share of that Borrowing. (c) Each Bank will make the amount of its Pro Rata Share of each Borrowing available to the Agent for the account of the Borrowers at the Agent's Payment Office by 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the Borrowing Date requested by the Borrowers in funds immediately available to the Agent. The proceeds of all such Loans will then be made available to the Borrowers by the Agent on the Borrowing Date by wire transfer in accordance with written instructions provided to the Agent by such Borrowers of like funds as received by the Agent. (d) After giving effect to any Borrowing, there may not be more than ten different Interest Periods in effect. 33

2.4 Conversion and Continuation Elections. (a) The Borrowers may, upon irrevocable written notice to the Agent in accordance with Section 2.4(b): (i) elect, as of any Business Day, in the case of Base Rate Loans, or as of the last day of the applicable Interest Period, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans, to convert any such Loans (or any part thereof in an amount not less than $5,000,000 in the case of a conversion to a Eurodollar Rate Loan or $1,000,000 in the case of a conversion to a Base Rate Loan, or that is in an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof) into Loans of the other Type; or (ii) elect, as of the last day of the applicable Interest Period, to continue as Eurodollar Rate Loans any Eurodollar Rate Loans having Interest Periods expiring on such day (or any part thereof in an amount not less than $5,000,000, or that is in an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof); provided, that if at any time the aggregate amount of Eurodollar Rate Loans in respect of any Borrowing is reduced, by payment, prepayment, or conversion of part thereof to be less than $5,000,000, such Eurodollar Rate Loans shall automatically convert into Base Rate Loans, and on and after such date the right of the Borrowers to continue such Loans as, and convert such Loans into, Eurodollar Rate Loans shall terminate. (b) The Borrowers shall deliver a Notice of Conversion/Continuation to be received by the Agent not later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) (i) three Business Days in advance of the Conversion/Continuation Date, if the Loans are to be converted into or continued as Eurodollar Rate Loans; and (ii) one Business Day in advance of the Conversion/Continuation Date, if the Loans are to be converted into Base Rate Loans, specifying: (A) the proposed Conversion/Continuation Date; (B) the aggregate amount of Loans to be converted or continued; (C) the Type of Loans resulting from the proposed conversion or continuation; and (D) other than in the case of conversions into Base Rate Loans, the duration of the requested Interest Period. (c) If upon the expiration of any Interest Period the Borrowers have failed to select timely a new Interest Period to be applicable to the Eurodollar Rate Loans having the expired Interest Period or if any Default or Event of Default then exists, the Borrowers shall be deemed to have elected to convert such Eurodollar Rate Loans into Base Rate Loans effective as of the expiration date of such Interest Period. (d) The Agent will promptly notify each Bank of its receipt of a Notice of Conversion/Continuation, or, if no timely notice is provided by the Borrowers, the Agent will promptly notify each Bank of the details of any automatic conversion. All conversions and continuations shall be made ratably according to the respective outstanding principal amounts of the Loans with respect to which the notice was given held by each Bank. 34

(e) Unless the Required Banks otherwise agree, during the existence of a Default or unless all the Banks otherwise agree, during the existence of an Event of Default, the Borrowers may not elect to have a Loan converted into or continued as a Eurodollar Rate Loan. (f) After giving effect to any conversion or continuation of Loans, there may not be more than ten different Interest Periods in effect. 2.5 Voluntary Termination or Reduction of Commitments. The Borrowers may, upon prior notice to the Agent and the Banks no later than 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) two Business Days' prior to a proposed termination, terminate the Revolving Commitments or the Acquisition Commitments, or permanently reduce the Commitments by an aggregate minimum amount of $3,000,000 or any multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof; unless, after giving effect thereto and to any prepayments of Loans made on the effective date thereof subject to Sections 2.6 and 4.4, (a) the then Effective Amount of all Revolving Loans and Swingline Loans plus the then Effective Amount of all L/C Obligations would exceed the amount of the Revolving Commitments then in effect or (b) the then Effective Amount of all outstanding Acquisition Loans would exceed the amount of the Acquisition Commitments then in effect. Once reduced in accordance with this Section 2.5, the Commitments may not be increased. Any reduction of the Commitments shall be applied to each Bank according to its Pro Rata Share. All accrued facility fees to, but not including, the effective date of any reduction or termination of Commitments, shall be paid on the last day of each calendar quarter and the effective date of any such termination. 2.6 Optional Prepayments. (a) Subject to Section 4.4, the Borrowers may, upon notice to the Agent, at any time or from time to time voluntarily prepay Loans (other than Swingline Loans) in whole or in part without premium or penalty; provided that such notice must be received by the Agent not later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) (A) three Business Days prior to any date of prepayment of Eurodollar Rate Loans and (B) on the date of prepayment of Base Rate Loans. Such notice of prepayment shall be irrevocable and specify the date and amount of such prepayment and the Type(s) of Loans to be prepaid and whether the Loans to be prepaid are Acquisition Loans or Revolving Loans. The Agent will promptly notify each Bank of its receipt of any such notice, and of such Bank's Pro Rata Share of such prepayment. If such notice is given by the Borrowers, the Borrowers shall make such prepayment and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein, together with, in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans, accrued interest to such date on the amount prepaid and any amounts required pursuant to Section 4.4; provided, that no amount of any optional prepayment under this Section 2.6(a) may be applied to the Revolving Loans unless and until all Specified Acquisition Loans have been paid in full. (b) The Borrowers may, upon notice to the Swing Line Bank (with a copy to the Agent), at any time or from time to time, voluntarily prepay Swingline Loans in whole or in part without premium or penalty; provided that (i) such notice must be received by the Swing Line Bank and the Agent not later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) on the date of the prepayment, and (ii) any such prepayment shall be in a minimum principal amount of $100,000. Each such notice shall specify the date and amount of such prepayment. If such notice is given 35

by the Borrowers, the Borrowers shall make such prepayment and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein. 2.7 Mandatory Prepayments of Loans; Mandatory Commitment Reductions. (a) Asset Sales. In the event that any Asset Sale results in Excess Sale Proceeds which are not applied as provided in Section 8.8(c)(ii)(B)(x), such Excess Sale Proceeds shall be applied to the prepayment of Senior Indebtedness on a pro rata basis based upon the aggregate principal amount of Senior Indebtedness then outstanding (assuming, with respect to revolving debt, that the maximum commitment amount is outstanding); provided, however, that the amounts that would be applicable to payments to the Banks hereunder shall be applied first to outstanding amounts under the Acquisition Commitments, then to outstanding amounts under the Revolving Commitments. Such prepayments shall be allocated among the Banks according to their respective Pro Rata Shares. The Acquisition Commitments and Revolving Commitments shall be reduced by the amount of such prepayments applied to outstanding principal amounts thereunder, and any such reduction shall be applied to each Bank according to its Pro Rata Share. If the amount of such Excess Sale Proceeds applicable to payment to the Banks hereunder exceeds the amount of the outstandings under the Commitments, the Commitments shall be reduced by such excess, by reduction, first to the Acquisition Commitments and then to the Revolving Commitments, and any such reduction shall be applied to each Bank in accordance with its Pro Rata Share. (b) Excess Outstandings. If on any date the Effective Amount of L/C Obligations exceeds the L/C Commitment, the Borrowers shall Cash Collateralize on such date the outstanding Letters of Credit in an amount equal to the excess of the maximum amount then available to be drawn under the Letters of Credit over the L/C Commitment. Subject to Section 4.4, if on any date after giving effect to any Cash Collateralization made on such date pursuant to the preceding sentence, the Effective Amount of all Revolving Loans and L/C Obligations exceeds the Revolving Commitments, the Borrowers shall immediately, and without notice or demand, prepay the outstanding principal amount of the Revolving Loans and/or L/C Advances by an amount equal to such excess. (c) Other Prepayments. In the event of a prepayment or mandatory repurchase of the Mortgage Notes or other Parity Debt not governed by Section 2.7(a) after the Acquisition Loan Termination Date, the Loans shall be prepaid in a pro rata amount, such pro rata amount based upon the maximum commitment amount of Mortgage Notes and Parity Debt plus the Commitments hereunder. Such prepayment shall be applied first to the installments of the Acquisition Loans then to the Revolving Loans (with a concurrent reduction of the Revolving Commitments). (d) Reduction of Acquisition Commitments. Upon any prepayment of the Acquisition Loans under Section 2.7(c), the respective Acquisition Commitments of the Banks shall be automatically and permanently reduced by an amount for each Bank equal to such Bank's Pro Rata Share of such prepayment of the Acquisition Loans. 36

2.8 Repayment. (a) The Acquisition Credit. The Borrowers shall repay to the Banks in full on the Acquisition Loan Termination Date the aggregate principal amount of Acquisition Loans outstanding on such date, together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon. (b) The Revolving Credit. The Borrowers shall repay to the Banks in full on the Revolving Termination Date the aggregate principal amount of Revolving Loans outstanding on such date, together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon. (c) Swingline Loans. The Borrowers shall repay to the Swing Line Bank in full the aggregate principal amount of each Swingline Loan, together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, upon the earlier of (a) 5 calendar days following the date on which such Swingline Loan was funded by the Swing Line Bank and (b) the Revolving Termination Date. 2.9 Interest. (a) Each Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof from the applicable Borrowing Date at a rate per annum equal to the Eurodollar Rate (other than with respect to Swingline Loans) or the Base Rate, as the case may be (and subject to the Borrowers' right to convert to the other Type of Loan under Section 2.4), plus the Applicable Margin. (b) Interest on each Loan shall be paid in arrears on each Interest Payment Date. Interest shall also be paid on the date of any prepayment of Eurodollar Rate Loans under Section 2.6 or 2.7 for the portion of the Loans so prepaid and upon payment (including prepayment) in full thereof and, during the existence of any Event of Default, interest shall be paid on demand of the Agent at the request or with the consent of the Required Banks. Interest on each Swingline Loan shall be for the sole account of the Swing Line Bank (except to the extent the other Banks have funded the purchase of participations therein pursuant to subsection 2.16(b)). (c) Notwithstanding subsection (a) of this Section, if any amount of principal of or interest on any Loan, or any other amount payable hereunder or under any other Loan Document is not paid in full when due (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration, demand or otherwise), the Borrowers agree to pay interest on such unpaid principal or other amount, from the date such amount becomes due to the date such amount is paid in full, and after as well as before any entry of judgment thereon to the extent permitted by law, payable on demand (but not more frequently than once per week), at a fluctuating rate per annum equal to the Base Rate plus 2%. (d) Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the obligations of the Borrowers to any Bank hereunder shall be subject to the limitation that payments of interest shall not be required for any period for which interest is computed hereunder, to the extent (but only to the extent) that contracting for or receiving such payment by such Bank would be contrary to the provisions of any law applicable to such Bank limiting the highest rate of interest that may be lawfully contracted for, charged or received by such Bank, and in such event the Borrowers shall pay such Bank interest for such period at the highest rate permitted by applicable law. 2.10 Fees. (a) Arrangement, Agency Fees. The Borrowers shall pay a transaction fee to the Arranger for the Arranger's own account, and shall pay an agency fee to the Agent for the 37

Agent's own account, as required by the letter agreement ("Fee Letter") among the Company, the Agent and the Arranger dated July 12, 2002. (b) Facility Fees. The Company shall pay on the last day of each calendar quarter to the Agent for the account of each Bank a facility fee on the daily average amount of (i) such Bank's Revolving Commitment (whether or not used) from the date hereof until the Revolving Termination Date and (ii) such Bank's Acquisition Commitment (whether or not used) from the date hereof until the Acquisition Loan Termination Date, in each case at the rate per annum set forth below for each Pricing Tier as such Pricing Tier is applicable: Pricing Tier Funded Debt Ratio Facility Fee Rate ------------ ----------------- ----------------- I Less than or equal to 1.75x 0.2500% II Greater than 1.75 x but less than or equal to 2.75x 0.2500% III Greater than 2.75 x but less than or equal to 3.25x 0.3750% IV Greater than 3.25 x but less than or equal to 3.75x 0.3750% V Greater than 3.75x but less than or equal to 4.25x 0.5000% VI Greater than 4.25x but less than or equal to 4.75x 0.5000% VII Greater than 4.75 0.5000% For the purpose of determining the applicable Pricing Tier pursuant to this Section 2.10(b), EBITDA shall be determined as at the end of each fiscal quarter for the four fiscal quarters then ending and Funded Debt shall be determined as at the end of each fiscal quarter. Pricing changes shall be effective on the later of (i) 45 days after the end of each of the first three fiscal quarters of each fiscal year and 90 days after each fiscal year end and (ii) the Agent's receipt of financial statements hereunder for such fiscal quarter or fiscal year; provided, however, that if the financial statements are not delivered when due in accordance with Section 7.1, then Pricing Tier VI shall apply as of the first Business Day after the date on which such financial statements were required to have been delivered until the date upon which such financial statements are delivered to the Agent. For the period from the Restatement Effective Date through December 29, 2002, the applicable Pricing Tier shall be determined by reference to the Compliance Certificate delivered pursuant to Section 5.1(m). (c) Upfront Fees. On or prior to the Restatement Effective Date, the Borrowers shall pay to the Agent for the account of each Bank an upfront fee in the amount of (i) 1.0 basis point (0.01%) for each one million Dollars of such Bank's Commitment on the 38

Restatement Effective Date, multiplied by (ii) such Bank's Commitment on the Restatement Effective Date. Such upfront fees are for the credit facilities committed by each Bank under this Agreement and are fully earned when paid. The upfront fees paid to each Bank are solely for its own account and are nonrefundable. 2.11 Computation of Fees and Interest. (a) All computations of interest for Base Rate Loans when the Base Rate is determined by Bank of America's "prime rate" shall be made on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, and actual days elapsed. All other computations of fees and interest shall be made on the basis of a 360-day year and actual days elapsed (which results in more fees or interest, as applicable, being paid than if computed on the basis of a 365-day year). Interest shall accrue on each Loan for the day on which the Loan is made, and shall not accrue on a Loan, or any portion thereof, for the day on which the Loan or such portion is paid, provided that any Loan that is repaid on the same day on which it is made shall, subject to Section 2.12(a), bear interest for one day. (b) Each determination of an interest rate by the Agent shall be conclusive and binding on the Borrowers and the Banks in the absence of manifest error. 2.12 Payments by the Borrowers. (a) All payments to be made by the Borrowers shall be made without set-off, recoupment or counterclaim. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments by the Borrowers shall be made to the Agent for the account of the Banks at the Agent's Payment Office, and shall be made in dollars and in immediately available funds, no later than 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the date specified herein. The Agent will promptly distribute to each Bank its Pro Rata Share (or other applicable share as expressly provided herein) of such payment in like funds as received. Any payment received by the Agent later than 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) shall be deemed to have been received on the following Business Day and any applicable interest or fee shall continue to accrue to such Business Day. (b) Subject to the provisions set forth in the definition of "Interest Period" herein, whenever any payment is due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the following Business Day, and such extension of time shall in such case be included in the computation of interest or fees, as the case may be. (c) Unless the Agent receives notice from the Borrowers prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Banks that the Borrowers will not make such payment in full as and when required, the Agent may assume that the Borrowers have made such payment in full to the Agent on such date in immediately available funds and the Agent may (but shall not be so required), in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to each Bank on such due date an amount equal to the amount then due such Bank. If and to the extent the Borrowers have not made such payment in full to the Agent, each Bank shall repay to the Agent on demand such amount distributed to such Bank, together with interest thereon at the Federal Funds Rate for each day from the date such amount is distributed to such Bank until the date repaid. 2.13 Payments by the Banks to the Agent, etc. (a) Unless the Agent receives notice from a Bank on or prior to the Restatement Effective Date or, with respect to any Borrowing after the Restatement Effective Date, at least one Business Day prior to the date of such Borrowing, that such Bank will not make available as and when required hereunder to the Agent 39

for the account of the Borrowers the amount of that Bank's Pro Rata Share of the Borrowing, the Agent may assume that each Bank has made such amount available to the Agent in immediately available funds on the Borrowing Date and the Agent may (but shall not be so required), in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrowers on such date a corresponding amount. If and to the extent any Bank shall not have made the full amount of its Pro Rata Share of any Borrowing available to the Agent in immediately available funds and the Agent in such circumstances has made available to the Borrowers such amount, that Bank shall on the Business Day following such Borrowing Date make such amount available to the Agent, together with interest at the Federal Funds Rate for each day during such period. A notice of the Agent submitted to any Bank with respect to amounts owing under this subsection (a) shall be conclusive, absent manifest error. If such amount is so made available, such payment to the Agent shall constitute such Bank's Loan on the date of Borrowing for all purposes of this Agreement. If such amount is not made available to the Agent on the Business Day following the Borrowing Date, the Agent will notify the Borrowers of such failure to fund and, upon demand by the Agent, the Borrowers shall pay such amount to the Agent for the Agent's account, together with interest thereon for each day elapsed since the date of such Borrowing, at a rate per annum equal to the interest rate applicable at the time to the Loans comprising such Borrowing. (b) The failure of any Bank to make any Loan on any Borrowing Date shall not relieve any other Bank of any obligation hereunder to make a Loan on such Borrowing Date, but no Bank shall be responsible for the failure of any other Bank to make the Loan to be made by such other Bank on any Borrowing Date. No Bank shall be entitled to take any action to protect or enforce its rights arising out of any Loan Document without the prior written consent of the Required Banks, including the exercise, or attempt to exercise, any right of set-off, banker's lien, or any similar such action, against any deposit account or property of the Borrowers held by any such Bank. 2.14 Sharing of Payments, etc. If, other than as expressly provided elsewhere herein, any Bank shall obtain on account of the Loans made by it, or the participations in L/C Obligations or in Swingline Loans held by it, any payment (whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right of set-off, or otherwise, except pursuant to Sections 2.15, 4.7, 11.1, and 11.9) in excess of its Pro Rata Share, such Bank shall immediately (a) notify the Agent of such fact, and (b) purchase from the other Banks such participations in the Loans made by them as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Bank to share the excess payment pro rata with each of them; provided, that if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from the purchasing Bank, such purchase shall to that extent be rescinded and each other Bank shall repay to the purchasing Bank the purchase price paid therefor, together with an amount equal to such paying Bank's ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such paying Bank's required repayment to (ii) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing Bank) of any interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Bank in respect of the total amount so recovered. The Borrowers agree that any Bank so purchasing a participation from another Bank may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all its rights of payment (including the right of set-off, but subject to Section 11.12) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Bank were the direct creditor of the Borrowers in the amount of such participation. The Agent will keep records (which shall be conclusive and binding in the 40

absence of manifest error) of participations purchased under this Section and will in each case notify the Banks following any such purchases or repayments. 2.15 Revolving Termination Date. (a) The Revolving Commitments shall terminate and each Bank shall be relieved of its obligations to make any Revolving Loan on the Revolving Termination Date. The Borrowers may from time to time request an extension of the Revolving Termination Date for an additional one-year period by executing and delivering to the Agent a Commitment Termination Date Extension Request at least 60 but not more than 90 days prior to the then scheduled Revolving Termination Date. The Revolving Termination Date shall be so extended if the Agent shall have received from each Bank on or prior to the 30th day preceding the then scheduled Revolving Termination Date a duly executed counterpart of such Commitment Termination Date Extension Request. Each Bank may in its sole and absolute discretion withhold its consent to any such Commitment Termination Date Extension Request. (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Agent shall have received duly executed counterparts of a Commitment Termination Date Extension Request from Banks representing, in the aggregate, 80% or more of the Revolving Commitments, but less than 100% of the Revolving Commitments, on or prior to the 30th day preceding the then scheduled Revolving Termination Date, the Agent shall so notify (the date of such notice being the "Notice Date") the Borrowers and the Borrowers shall have the right to seek a substitute bank or banks (the "New Banks") which New Banks would meet the requirements to be Eligible Assignees, acceptable to the Agent and the Borrowers (which may be one or more of the Banks) to replace the Bank or Banks which have not delivered a counterpart of such Commitment Termination Date Extension Request by such time; provided, that such New Banks shall replace such nonrenewing Banks on all such nonrenewing Banks' Commitments, Loans, L/C Obligations and L/C Advances, so the Pro Rata Share of any New Bank of the Acquisition Commitments, Revolving Commitments, Loans, L/C Obligations and L/C Advances shall be the same. If any Revolving Termination Date shall not have been extended pursuant to clause (a) above, the Borrowers shall elect, by delivering to the Agent at least four Business Days' prior to the then scheduled Revolving Termination Date a written notice of election, either (i) not to extend such Revolving Termination Date, in which case such Revolving Termination Date shall not be so extended for any Bank irrespective of whether such Bank has or has not sent its duly executed counterpart of the Commitment Termination Date Extension Request or (ii) if the aggregate Revolving Commitments of the Banks who have delivered duly executed counterparts of a Commitment Termination Date Extension Request represent at least 80% of the Revolving Commitments, to extend such current Revolving Termination Date, in which case (x) the Revolving Termination Date shall be extended for an additional period of one year from the then scheduled Revolving Termination Date, and (y) the Revolving Commitments shall be reduced on the then scheduled Revolving Termination Date to an amount equal to the aggregate of the Revolving Commitments of the Banks who had delivered duly executed counterparts of a Commitment Termination Date Extension Request on or prior to the 30th day preceding the then scheduled Revolving Termination Date, plus the aggregate Revolving Commitments of the New Banks and (z) the Commitments shall be reduced on the then scheduled Revolving Termination Date to an amount equal to (1) the aggregate of the Commitments of the Banks who have delivered executed counterparts of a Commitment Termination Date Extension Request on or prior to the 30th day preceding the then scheduled Revolving Termination Date plus (2) the aggregate Commitments of the New Banks, and the Borrowers shall pay (such payment to be 41

made on such Revolving Termination Date) in full all Revolving Loans and Acquisition Loans plus all accrued interest and fees (including any amounts owed under Section 4.4) owing to each such non-renewing Bank and each such non-renewing Bank (to the extent that such Loans have not been acquired by the new Banks) shall no longer have any Commitment for purposes of this Agreement and each other Loan Document. If the Borrowers shall not have delivered such a written notice of election to the Agent on or prior to the then scheduled Revolving Termination Date, such Revolving Termination Date shall not be extended. 2.16 Swingline Loans. (a) The Swing Line. On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in Section 5.1 (in the case of any Swingline Loan to be made on the Restatement Effective Date), Section 5.2 and this Section 2.16, the Swing Line Bank agrees to make loans (each such loan, a "Swingline Loan") to the Borrowers from time to time on any Business Day during the period from the Restatement Effective Date to the Revolving Termination Date in an aggregate amount not to exceed at any time outstanding the amount of the Swing Line Sublimit, notwithstanding the fact that such Swingline Loans, when aggregated with the Pro Rata Share of the Effective Amount of Revolving Loans and L/C Obligations of the Bank acting as Swing Line Bank, may exceed the amount of such Bank's Revolving Commitment; provided, however, that after giving effect to any Swingline Loan, (i) the aggregate Effective Amount of all Revolving Loans, all Swingline Loans and all L/C Obligations shall not exceed the Revolving Commitments of all the Banks, and (ii) the aggregate Effective Amount of the Revolving Loans of any Bank, plus such Bank's Pro Rata Share of the Effective Amount of all L/C Obligations, plus such Bank's Pro Rata Share of the Effective Amount of all Swingline Loans shall not exceed such Bank's Revolving Commitment, and provided, further, that the Borrowers shall not use the proceeds of any Swingline Loan to refinance any outstanding Swingline Loan. Within the foregoing limits, and subject to the other terms and conditions hereof, the Borrowers may borrow under this Section 2.16, prepay under Section 2.6, and reborrow under this Section 2.16. Each Swingline Loan shall be a Base Rate Loan. Immediately upon the making of a Swingline Loan, each Bank shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from the Swing Line Bank a risk participation in such Swingline Loan in an amount equal to the product of such Bank's Pro Rata Share times the amount of such Swingline Loan. (b) Borrowing Procedures. Each Borrowing of Swingline Loans shall be made upon the Borrowers' irrevocable notice to the Swing Line Bank and the Agent, which may be given by telephone. Each such notice must be received by the Swing Line Bank and the Agent not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the requested borrowing date, and shall specify (i) the amount to be borrowed, which shall be a minimum of $1,000,000 or any multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof, and (ii) the requested borrowing date, which shall be a Business Day. Each such telephonic notice must be confirmed promptly by delivery to the Swing Line Bank and the Agent of a written Notice of Borrowing, appropriately completed and signed by a Responsible Officer of the Borrowers. Promptly after receipt by the Swing Line Bank of any telephonic notice of borrowing of Swingline Loans, the Swing Line Bank will confirm with the Agent (by telephone or in writing) that the Agent has also received such notice of borrowing and, if not, the Swing Line Bank will notify the Agent (by telephone or in writing) of the contents thereof. Unless the Swing Line Bank has received notice (by telephone or in writing) from the Agent (including at the request of any Bank) prior to 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the date 42

of the proposed Borrowing (A) directing the Swing Line Bank not to make such Swingline Loan as a result of the limitations set forth in the proviso to the first sentence of Section 2.16(a), or (B) that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Article V is not then satisfied, then, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Swing Line Bank will, not later than 3:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the borrowing date specified in such Notice of Borrowing, make the amount of its Swingline Loan available to the Borrowers. (c) Refinancing of Swingline Loans. (i) The Swing Line Bank at any time in its sole and absolute discretion may request, on behalf of the Borrowers (which hereby irrevocably authorize the Swing Line Bank to so request on their behalf), that each Bank make a Base Rate Loan in an amount equal to such Bank's Pro Rata Share of the amount of Swingline Loans then outstanding. Such request shall be made in writing (which written request shall be deemed to be a Notice of Borrowing for purposes hereof) and in accordance with the requirements of Section 2.3, without regard to the minimum and multiples specified therein for the principal amount of Base Rate Loans, but subject to the unutilized portion of the Revolving Commitments and the conditions set forth in Section 5.2. The Swing Line Bank shall furnish the Borrowers with a copy of the applicable Notice of Borrowing promptly after delivering such notice to the Agent. Each Bank shall make an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share of the amount specified in such Notice of Borrowing available to the Agent in immediately available funds for the account of the Swing Line Bank at the Agent's Office not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the day specified in such Notice of Borrowing, whereupon, subject to Section 2.16(c)(ii), each Bank that so makes funds available shall be deemed to have made a Base Rate Loan to the Borrowers in such amount. The Agent shall remit the funds so received to the Swing Line Bank. (ii) If for any reason any Swingline Loan cannot be refinanced by such a Borrowing in accordance with Section 2.16(c)(i), the request for Base Rate Loans submitted by the Swing Line Bank as set forth herein shall be deemed to be a request by the Swing Line Bank that each of the Banks fund its risk participation in the relevant Swingline Loan and each Bank's payment to the Agent for the account of the Swing Line Bank pursuant to Section 2.16(c)(i) shall be deemed payment in respect of such participation. (iii) If any Bank fails to make available to the Agent for the account of the Swing Line Bank any amount required to be paid by such Bank pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.16(c) by the time specified in Section 2.16(c)(i), the Swing Line Bank shall be entitled to recover from such Bank (acting through the Agent), on demand, such amount with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to the Swing Line Bank at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Rate from time to time in effect. A certificate of the Swing Line Bank submitted to any Bank (through the Agent) with respect to any amounts owing under this clause (iii) shall be conclusive absent manifest error. (iv) Each Bank's obligation to make Loans or to purchase and fund risk participations in Swingline Loans pursuant to this Section 2.16(c) shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (A) any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Bank may have against the Swing 43

Line Bank, the Borrowers or any other Person for any reason whatsoever, (B) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or (C) any other occurrence, event or condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing; provided, however, that each Bank's obligation to make Loans pursuant to this Section 2.16(c) is subject to the conditions set forth in Section 5.2. No such funding of risk participations shall relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of the Borrowers to repay Swingline Loans, together with interest as provided herein. (d) Repayment of Participations. (i) At any time after any Bank has purchased and funded a risk participation in a Swingline Loan, if the Swing Line Bank receives any payment on account of such Swingline Loan, the Swing Line Bank will distribute to such Bank its Pro Rata Share of such payment (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to reflect the period of time during which such Bank's risk participation was funded) in the same funds as those received by the Swing Line Bank. (ii) If any payment received by the Swing Line Bank in respect of principal or interest on any Swingline Loan is required to be returned by the Swing Line Bank under any of the circumstances described in Section 11.7 (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by the Swing Line Bank in its discretion), each Bank shall pay to the Swing Line Bank its Pro Rata Share thereof on demand of the Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such amount is returned, at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Rate. The Agent will make such demand upon the request of the Swing Line Bank. (e) Interest for Account of Swing Line Bank. The Swing Line Bank shall be responsible for invoicing the Borrowers for interest on the Swingline Loans. Until each Bank funds its Base Rate Loan or risk participation pursuant to this Section 2.16 to refinance such Bank's Pro Rata Share of any Swingline Loan, interest in respect of such Pro Rata Share shall be solely for the account of the Swing Line Bank. (f) Payments Directly to Swing Line Bank. The Borrowers shall make all payments of principal and interest in respect of the Swingline Loans directly to the Swing Line Bank. ARTICLE III THE LETTERS OF CREDIT 3.1 The Letter of Credit Subfacility. (a) On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein (i) the Issuing Bank agrees, in reliance upon the agreements of the other Banks set forth in this Article III, (A) from time to time on any Business Day during the period from the Restatement Effective Date to the Revolving Termination Date to issue Letters of Credit for the account of the Borrowers, and to amend or renew, extend the expiration of or increase the amount of Letters of Credit previously issued by it, in accordance with Sections 3.2(c) and 3.2(d), and (B) to honor drafts under the Letters of Credit; and (ii) the Banks severally agree to participate in Letters of Credit Issued for the account of the Borrowers; provided, that the Issuing Bank shall not be obligated to Issue, and no Bank shall be obligated to participate in, any Letter 44

of Credit if as of the date of Issuance of such Letter of Credit (the "Issuance Date") (x) the Effective Amount of all L/C Obligations plus the Effective Amount of all Revolving Loans plus the Effective Amount of all Swingline Loans exceeds the amount of the Revolving Commitment or (y) the Effective Amount of all L/C Obligations exceeds $35,000,000. Within the foregoing limits, and subject to the other terms and conditions hereof, the Borrowers' ability to obtain Letters of Credit shall be fully revolving, and, accordingly, the Borrowers may, during the foregoing period, obtain Letters of Credit to replace Letters of Credit which have expired or which have been drawn upon and reimbursed. The Existing Letters of Credit shall be deemed to have been issued pursuant hereto, and from and after the Restatement Effective Date shall be subject to and governed by the terms and conditions hereof. (b) The Issuing Bank shall not Issue any Letter of Credit if: (i) any order, judgment or decree of any Governmental Authority or arbitrator shall by its terms purport to enjoin or restrain the Issuing Bank from Issuing such Letter of Credit, or any Requirement of Law applicable to the Issuing Bank or any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over the Issuing Bank shall prohibit, or request that the Issuing Bank refrain from, the Issuance of letters of credit generally or such Letter of Credit in particular or shall impose upon the Issuing Bank with respect to such Letter of Credit any restriction, reserve or capital requirement (for which the Issuing Bank is not otherwise compensated hereunder) not in effect on the Restatement Effective Date, or shall impose upon the Issuing Bank any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which was not applicable on the Restatement Effective Date and which the Issuing Bank in good faith deems material to it; (ii) the Issuing Bank has received written notice from any Bank, the Agent or the Company, on or prior to the Business Day prior to the requested date of Issuance of such Letter of Credit, that one or more of the applicable conditions contained in Article V is not then satisfied; (iii) the expiry date of any requested Letter of Credit is (A) more than twelve months after the date of Issuance, unless the Required Banks have approved such expiry date in writing, or (B) after the Revolving Termination Date, unless all of the Banks have approved such expiry date in writing; (iv) any requested Letter of Credit is now otherwise in form and substance acceptable to the Issuing Bank, or the Issuance of a Letter of Credit shall violate any applicable policies of the Issuing Bank; (v) such Letter of Credit is in a face amount less than $500,000 or to be denominated in a currency other than Dollars. 3.2 Issuance, Amendment and Renewal of Letters of Credit. (a) Each Letter of Credit shall be issued upon the irrevocable written request of the Borrowers received by the Issuing Bank (with a copy sent by the Borrowers to the Agent) not later than 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) at least two Business Days (or such shorter time as the Issuing Bank may agree in a particular instance in its sole discretion) prior to the proposed date of issuance. Each such 45

request for issuance of a Letter of Credit shall be by facsimile, confirmed promptly in an original writing, in the form of an L/C Application, appropriately completed and signed by a Responsible Officer of the Borrowers, and shall specify in form and detail satisfactory to the Issuing Bank: (i) the proposed date of issuance of the Letter of Credit (which shall be a Business Day); (ii) the face amount of the Letter of Credit; (iii) the expiry date of the Letter of Credit; (iv) the name and address of the beneficiary thereof; (v) the documents to be presented by the beneficiary of the Letter of Credit in case of any drawing thereunder; (vi) the full text of any certificate to be presented by the beneficiary in case of any drawing thereunder; and (vii) such other matters as the Issuing Bank may require. (b) Promptly after receipt of any L/C Application, the Issuing Bank will confirm with the Agent (by telephone or in writing) that the Agent has received a copy of such L/C Application from the Borrowers and, if not, the Issuing Bank will provide the Agent with a copy thereof. Upon receipt by the Issuing Bank of confirmation from the Agent that the requested issuance or amendment is permitted in accordance with the terms hereof, then, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Issuing Bank shall, on the requested date, issue a Letter of Credit for the account of the Borrowers or enter into the applicable amendment, as the case may be, in each case in accordance with the Issuing Bank's usual and customary business practices. Immediately upon the Issuance of each Letter of Credit, each Bank shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from the Issuing Bank a risk participation in such Letter of Credit in an amount equal to the product of such Bank's Pro Rata Share times the amount of such Letter of Credit. (c) From time to time while a Letter of Credit is outstanding and prior to the Revolving Termination Date, the Issuing Bank will, upon the written request of the Borrowers received by the Issuing Bank (with a copy sent by the Borrowers to the Agent) not later than 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) at least two Business Days (or such shorter time as the Issuing Bank may agree in a particular instance in its sole discretion) prior to the proposed date of amendment, amend any Letter of Credit issued by it. Each such request for amendment of a Letter of Credit shall be made by facsimile made in the form of an L/C Amendment Application and shall specify in form and detail satisfactory to the Issuing Bank: (i) the Letter of Credit to be amended; (ii) the proposed date of amendment of the Letter of Credit (which shall be a Business Day); (iii) the nature of the proposed amendment; and (iv) such other matters as the Issuing Bank may reasonably require. The Issuing Bank shall not amend any Letter of Credit if: (A) the Issuing Bank would have no obligation at such time to issue such Letter of Credit in its amended form under the terms of this Agreement; or (B) the beneficiary of any such Letter of Credit does not accept the proposed amendment to the Letter of Credit. The Agent will promptly notify the Banks of the receipt by it of any L/C Application or L/C Amendment Application. (d) If the Borrowers so request in any applicable L/C Application, the Issuing Bank may, in its sole and absolute discretion, agree to issue a Letter of Credit that has automatic renewal provisions (each, an "Auto-Renewal Letter of Credit"); provided that any such Auto-Renewal Letter of Credit must permit the Issuing Bank to prevent any such renewal at least once in each twelve-month period (commencing with the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit) by giving prior notice to the beneficiary thereof not later than a day (the "Nonrenewal Notice Date") in each such twelve-month period to be agreed upon at the time such Letter of Credit is issued. Unless otherwise directed by the Issuing Bank, the Borrowers shall not be required to make a 46

specific request to the Issuing Bank for any such renewal. Once an Auto-Renewal Letter of Credit has been issued, the Banks shall be deemed to have authorized (but may not require) the Issuing Bank to permit the renewal of such Letter of Credit at any time to an expiry date not later than the Revolving Termination Date; provided, however, that the Issuing Bank shall not permit any such renewal if (A) the Issuing Bank has determined that it would have no obligation at such time to issue such Letter of Credit in its renewed form under the terms hereof (by reason of the provisions of Section 3.1(b) or otherwise), or (B) it has received notice (which may be by telephone or in writing) on or before the day that is two Business Days before the Nonrenewal Notice Date (1) from the Agent that the Required Banks have elected not to permit such renewal or (2) from the Agent, any Bank or the Borrowers that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Section 5.2 is not then satisfied. (e) The Issuing Bank may, at its election (or as required by the Agent at the direction of the Required Banks), deliver any notices of termination or other communications to any Letter of Credit beneficiary or transferee, and take any other action as necessary or appropriate, at any time and from time to time, in order to cause the expiry date of such Letter of Credit to be a date not later than the Revolving Termination Date. (f) This Agreement shall control in the event of any conflict with any L/C-Related Document (other than any Letter of Credit). (g) The Issuing Bank will also deliver to the Agent, concurrently or promptly following its delivery of a Letter of Credit, or amendment to or renewal of a Letter of Credit, to an advising bank or a beneficiary, a true and complete copy of each such Letter of Credit or amendment to or renewal of a Letter of Credit. 3.3 Risk Participations, Drawings and Reimbursements. (a) Immediately upon the Issuance of each Letter of Credit, each Bank shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from the Issuing Bank a participation in such Letter of Credit and each drawing thereunder in an amount equal to the product of (i) the Pro Rata Share of such Bank times (ii) the maximum amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit and the amount of each such drawing, respectively. (b) In the event of any request for a drawing under a Letter of Credit by the beneficiary or transferee thereof, the Issuing Bank will promptly notify the Company and the Agent. The Borrowers shall reimburse the Issuing Bank prior to 1:00 p.m. (New York City time), on each date that any amount is paid by the Issuing Bank under any Letter of Credit (each such date, an "Honor Date"), in an amount equal to the amount so paid by the Issuing Bank. In the event the Borrowers fail to reimburse the Issuing Bank for the full amount of any drawing under any Letter of Credit by 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the Honor Date, the Issuing Bank will promptly notify the Agent and the Agent will promptly notify each Bank thereof, and the Borrowers shall be deemed to have requested that Base Rate Loans be made by the Banks to be disbursed on the Honor Date under such Letter of Credit, subject to the amount of the unutilized portion of the Revolving Commitment and subject to the conditions set forth in Section 5.2. Any notice given by the Issuing Bank or the Agent pursuant to this Section 3.3(b) may be given by telephone if immediately confirmed in writing (including by facsimile); 47

provided, that the lack of such an immediate confirmation. shall not affect the conclusiveness or binding effect of such notice. (c) Each Bank shall upon any notice pursuant to Section 3.3(b) make available to the Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank an amount in Dollars and in immediately available funds equal to its Pro Rata Share of the amount of the drawing, whereupon the participating Banks shall (subject to Section 3.3(e)) each be deemed to have made a Revolving Loan consisting of a Base Rate Loan to the Borrowers in that amount. The Agent shall remit the funds so received to the Issuing Bank. If any Bank so notified fails to make available to the Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank the amount of such Bank's Pro Rata Share of the amount of the drawing by no later than 3:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the Honor Date, then interest shall accrue on such Bank's obligation to make such payment, from the Honor Date to the date such Bank makes such payment, at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Rate in effect from time to time during such period. The Agent will promptly give notice of the occurrence of the Honor Date, but failure of the Agent to give any such notice in sufficient time to enable any Bank to effect such payment on such date shall not relieve such Bank from its obligations under this Section 3.3 (other than the obligation to pay interest for the period prior to the notice). (d) With respect to any unreimbursed drawing that is not converted into Revolving Loans consisting of Base Rate Loans to the Borrowers in whole or in part, because of the Borrowers' failure to satisfy the conditions set forth in Section 5.2 or for any other reason, the Borrowers shall be deemed to have incurred from the Issuing Bank an L/C Borrowing in the amount of such drawing, which L/C Borrowing shall be due and payable on demand (together with interest) and shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate plus 2%, and each Bank's payment to the Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 3.3(c) shall be deemed payment in respect of its participation in such L/C Borrowing and shall constitute an L/C Advance from such Bank in satisfaction of its participation obligation under this Section 3.3. (e) Each Bank's obligation in accordance with this Agreement to make Revolving Loans or L/C Advances to reimburse the Issuing Bank for amounts drawn under Letters of Credit, as contemplated by this Section 3.3, shall be absolute and unconditional and without recourse to the Issuing Bank and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (i) any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Bank may have against the Issuing Bank, the Borrowers or any other Person for any reason whatsoever; (ii) the occurrence or continuance of a Default, an Event of Default or a Material Adverse Effect; or (iii) any other occurrence, circumstance, happening, event or condition whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing; provided, however, that each Bank's obligation to make Revolving Loans under this Section 3.3 is subject to the conditions set forth in Section 5.2 (other than delivery by the Borrowers of a Notice of Borrowing). No such making of an L/C Advance shall relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of the Borrowers to reimburse the Issuing Bank for the amount of any payment made by the Issuing Bank under any Letter of Credit, together with interest as provided herein. 3.4 Repayment of Participations. (a) Upon (and only upon) receipt by the Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank of immediately available funds from the Borrowers (i) in reimbursement of any payment made by the Issuing Bank under the Letter of Credit with respect 48

to which any Bank has paid the Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank for such Bank's participation in the Letter of Credit pursuant to Section 3.3 or (ii) in payment of interest thereon, the Agent will pay to each Bank, in the same funds as those received by the Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank, the amount of such Bank's Pro Rata Share of such funds, and the Issuing Bank shall receive the amount of the Pro Rata Share of such funds of any Bank that did not so pay the Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank. (b) If the Agent or the Issuing Bank is required at any time to return to the Borrowers, or to a trustee, receiver, liquidator, custodian, or any official in any Insolvency Proceeding, any portion of the payments made by the Borrowers to the Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 3.4(a) in reimbursement of a payment made under any Letter of Credit or interest or fee thereon, each Bank shall, on demand of the Agent, forthwith return to the Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank the amount of its Pro Rata Share of any amounts so returned by the Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank plus interest thereon from the date such demand is made to the date such amounts are returned by such Bank to the Agent, at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Rate in effect from time to time. 3.5 Role of the Issuing Bank. (a) Each Bank and the Borrowers agree that, in paying any drawing under a Letter of Credit, the Issuing Bank shall not have any responsibility to obtain any document (other than any sight draft, certificates and documents expressly required by the Letter of Credit) or to ascertain or inquire as to the validity or accuracy of any such document or the authority of the Person executing or delivering any such document. (b) None of the Issuing Bank, the Agent-Related Persons or any of the respective correspondents, participants or assignees of the Issuing Bank or the Agent-Related Persons shall be liable to any Bank for: (i) any action taken or omitted in connection herewith at the request or with the approval of the Banks (including the Required Banks, as applicable); (ii) any action taken or omitted in the absence of negligence or willful misconduct; or (iii) the due execution, effectiveness, validity or enforceability of any L/C-Related Document. (c) Except as otherwise provided in this clause (c), the Borrowers hereby assume all risks of the acts or omissions of any beneficiary or transferee with respect to its use of any Letter of Credit; provided, that this assumption is not intended to, and shall not, preclude the Borrowers' pursuing such rights and remedies as they may have against the beneficiary or transferee at law or under any other agreement. None of the Issuing Bank, the Agent-Related Persons or any of the respective correspondents, participants or assignees of the Issuing Bank or the Agent-Related Persons shall be liable or responsible for any of the matters described in clauses (i) through (vii) of Section 3.6; provided, that anything in such clauses to the contrary notwithstanding, the Borrowers may have a claim against the Issuing Bank, and the Issuing Bank may be liable to the Borrowers, to the extent, but only to the extent, of any direct, as opposed to consequential or exemplary, damages suffered by the Borrowers which the Borrowers prove were caused by the Issuing Bank's willful misconduct or gross negligence or the Issuing Bank's willful failure to pay under any Letter of Credit after the presentation to it by the beneficiary of a sight draft and certificate(s) strictly complying with the terms and conditions of a Letter of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing: (i) the Issuing Bank may accept documents that appear on their face to be in order, without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary; and (ii) the Issuing Bank 49

shall not be responsible for the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign a Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason. 3.6 Obligations Absolute. Subject to the proviso contained in the second sentence of Section 3.5(c), the obligations of the Borrowers under this Agreement and any L/C-Related Document to reimburse the Issuing Bank for a drawing under a Letter of Credit, and to repay any L/C Borrowing and any drawing under a Letter of Credit converted into Revolving Loans, shall be unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and each such other L/C-Related Document under all circumstances, including the following: (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement or any L/C-Related Document; (ii) any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any other term of, all or any of the obligations of the Borrowers in respect of any Letter of Credit or any other amendment or waiver of or any consent to departure from all or any of the L/C-Related Documents; (iii) the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other right that the Borrowers may have at any time against any beneficiary or any transferee of any Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom any such beneficiary or any such transferee may be acting), the Issuing Bank or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby or by the L/C-Related Documents or any unrelated transaction; (iv) any draft, demand, certificate or other document presented under any Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect; or any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under any Letter of Credit; (v) any payment by the Issuing Bank under any Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or certificate that does not strictly comply with the terms of any Letter of Credit; or any payment made by the Issuing Bank under any Letter of Credit to any Person purporting to be a trustee in bankruptcy, debtor-in-possession, assignee for the benefit of creditors, liquidator, receiver or other representative of or successor to any beneficiary or any transferee of any Letter of Credit, including any arising in connection with any Insolvency Proceeding; (vi) any exchange, release or non-perfection of any collateral, or any release or amendment or waiver of or consent to departure from any other guarantee, for all or any of the obligations of the Borrowers in respect of any Letter of Credit; or (vii) any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, including any other circumstance that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, any Borrower or a guarantor. 50

The Borrowers shall promptly examine a copy of each Letter of Credit and each amendment thereto that is delivered to them and, in the event of any claim of noncompliance with the Borrowers' instructions or other irregularity, the Borrowers will promptly notify the Issuing Bank. The Borrowers shall be conclusively deemed to have waived any such claim against the Issuing Bank and its correspondents unless such notice is given as aforesaid. 3.7 Cash Collateral Pledge. Upon the request of the Agent, (i) if the Issuing Bank has honored any full or partial drawing request under any Letter of Credit and such drawing has resulted in an L/C Borrowing, or (ii) if, as of the Revolving Termination Date, any Letter of Credit may for any reason remain outstanding and partially or wholly undrawn, the Borrowers shall immediately Cash Collateralize the then Effective Amount of all L/C Obligations (in an amount equal to such Effective Amount determined as of the date of such L/C Borrowing or the Revolving Termination Date, as the case may be). Cash collateral shall be maintained in blocked, non-interest bearing deposit accounts at Bank of America. 3.8 Letter of Credit Fees. (a) The Borrowers shall pay to the Agent for the account of each Bank in accordance with its Pro Rata Share (i) a Letter of Credit fee for each Letter of Credit (other than Existing Letters of Credit) equal to the Applicable Margin for Revolving Loans consisting of Eurodollar Rate Loans times the daily maximum amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit (whether or not such maximum amount is then in effect under such Letter of Credit) and (ii) a Letter of Credit fee for each Existing Letter of Credit equal to the Applicable Margin for Revolving Loans consisting of Eurodollar Rate Loans times the daily maximum amount available to be drawn under such Existing Letter of Credit. Such letter of credit fees shall be computed on a quarterly basis in arrears. If there is any change in the Applicable Margin during any quarter, the daily maximum amount of each Letter of Credit shall be computed and multiplied by the Applicable Margin separately for each period during such quarter that such Applicable Margin was in effect. (b) The Borrowers shall pay to the Issuing Bank a letter of credit fronting fee for each Letter of Credit Issued by the Issuing Bank equal to 0.125% per annum of the face amount (or increased face amount, as the case may be) of such Letter of Credit, as computed by the Agent. (c) The letter of credit fees payable under Section 3.8(a) and the fronting fees payable under Section 3.8(b) shall be due and payable on the first Business Day after the end of each March, June, September and December, commencing with the first such date to occur after the Restatement Effective Date, on the Revolving Termination Date and thereafter on demand. (d) In addition, the Borrowers shall pay directly to the Issuing Bank for its own account the customary issuance, presentation, amendment and other processing fees, and other standard costs and charges, of the Issuing Bank relating to letters of credit as from time to time in effect. Such customary fees and standard costs and charges are due and payable on demand and are nonrefundable. 3.9 Applicability of ISP98 and UCP. Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the Issuing Bank and the Borrowers when a Letter of Credit is issued (including any such agreement applicable to the Existing Letters of Credit), (i) the rules of the "International Standby Practices 51

1998" published by the Institute of International Banking Law & Practice (or such later version thereof as may be in effect at the time of issuance) shall apply to each standby Letter of Credit, and (ii) the rules of the Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits, as most recently published by the International Chamber of Commerce (the "ICC") at the time of issuance (including the ICC decision published by the Commission on Banking Technique and Practice on April 6, 1998 regarding the European single currency (euro)) shall apply to each commercial Letter of Credit. 3.10 Conflict with L/C Application. In the event of any conflict between the terms hereof and the terms of any L/C Application, the terms hereof shall control. ARTICLE IV TAXES, YIELD PROTECTION AND ILLEGALITY 4.1 Taxes. (a) Except as provided in Section 4.1(c), any and all payments by the Borrowers to each Bank or the Agent under this Agreement and any other Loan Document shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for any Taxes. In addition, the Borrowers shall pay all Other Taxes. (b) The Borrowers agree to indemnify and hold harmless each Bank and the Agent for the full amount of Taxes or Other Taxes including any Taxes or Other Taxes imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section paid by the Bank or the Agent and any liability (including penalties, interest, additions to tax and expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally asserted). Payment under this indemnification shall be made within 30 days after the date the Bank or the Agent provides written proof of payment of the related Taxes or Other Taxes to the Borrowers. (c) If the Borrowers shall be required by law to deduct or withhold any Taxes or Other Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable hereunder to any Bank or the Agent, then: (i) the sum payable shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions and withholdings (including deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) such Bank or the Agent, as the case may be, receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made; (ii) the Borrowers shall make such deductions and withholdings; (iii) the Borrowers shall pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant taxing authority or other authority in accordance with applicable law; and (iv) the Borrowers shall also pay to each Bank or the Agent for the account of such Bank, at the time interest is paid, all additional amounts which the respective Bank specifies as necessary to preserve the after-tax yield the Bank would have received if such Taxes or Other Taxes had not been imposed. 52

(d) Within 30 days after their receipt of a written request therefor by Agent, the Borrowers shall furnish the Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing any payment by the Borrowers of Taxes or Other Taxes, or other evidence of payment satisfactory to the Agent. (e) If the Borrowers are required to pay additional amounts to any Bank or the Agent pursuant to subsection (c) of this Section, then such Bank shall use reasonable efforts (consistent with legal and regulatory restrictions) to change the jurisdiction of its Lending Office so as to eliminate any such additional payment by the Borrowers which may thereafter accrue, if such change in the judgment of such Bank is not otherwise disadvantageous to such Bank. (f) No Foreign Bank shall be entitled to claim that the provisions of this Section 4.1 apply to it with respect to Taxes unless such Foreign Bank shall have delivered to the Borrowers, prior to the time that any payments are to be made under this Agreement to such Foreign Bank, a properly completed (i) Treasury Form W-8ECI, specifying that the payments to be received by such Foreign Bank pursuant to this Agreement are effectively connected with the conduct of a United States trade or business or (ii) Treasury Form W-8BEN, specifying that the payments to be received by such Foreign Bank pursuant to this Agreement are wholly exempt from United States federal income tax pursuant to the provisions of an applicable income tax treaty with the United States and, in either case, has otherwise complied with Section 10.13 hereof. Each Foreign Bank that shall have provided a Form W-8ECI or a Form W-8BEN to the Borrowers, if permitted by law, shall be required to provide the Borrowers with a new form (also showing no withholding) no later than 3 years from the date that it provided the original form to the Borrowers in order to claim advantage of this Section 4.1 from and after such time. 4.2 Illegality. (a) If the introduction after the date hereof of any Requirement of Law, or any change after the Restatement Effective Date in any Requirement of Law, or in the interpretation or administration of any Requirement of Law, has made it unlawful, or that any central bank or other Governmental Authority has asserted after the Restatement Effective Closing Date that it is unlawful, for any Bank or its applicable Lending Office to make Eurodollar Rate Loans, then, on notice thereof by the Bank to the Borrowers through the Agent, any obligation of that Bank to make Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be suspended until the Bank notifies the Agent and the Borrowers that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist. (b) If it is unlawful for any Bank to maintain any Eurodollar Rate Loan, the Borrowers shall, upon receipt by the Company of notice of such fact and demand from such Bank (with a copy to the Agent), prepay in full such Eurodollar Rate Loans of that Bank then outstanding, together with interest accrued thereon, either on the last day of the Interest Period thereof, if the Bank may lawfully continue to maintain such Eurodollar Rate Loans to such day, or immediately, if the Bank may not lawfully continue to maintain such Eurodollar Rate Loan. If the Borrowers are required to so prepay any Eurodollar Rate Loan, then concurrently with such prepayment, the Borrowers shall borrow from the affected Bank, in the amount of such prepayment, a Base Rate Loan. (c) If the obligation of any Bank to make or maintain Eurodollar Rate Loans has been so terminated or suspended, the Borrowers may elect, by giving notice to the Bank 53

through the Agent that all Loans which would otherwise be made by the Bank as Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be instead Base Rate Loans. (d) Before giving any notice to the Agent under this Section, the affected Bank shall designate a different Lending Office with respect to its Eurodollar Rate Loans if such designation will avoid the need for giving such notice or making such demand and will not, in the judgment of the Bank, be illegal or otherwise disadvantageous to the Bank. 4.3 Increased Costs and Reduction of Return. (a) If, due to either (i) the introduction after the date hereof of, or any change after the date hereof (other than any change by way of imposition of or increase in reserve requirements included in the calculation of the Eurodollar Rate or in respect of the assessment rate payable by any Bank to the FDIC for insuring U.S. deposits) in or in the interpretation of any law or regulation applicable to any Bank (other than any such introduction or change announced prior to the date hereof) or (ii) the compliance by any Bank with any guideline or request from any central bank or other Governmental Authority (whether or not having the force of law) not in effect prior to the date hereof, there shall be any increase in the cost to such Bank of agreeing to make or making, funding or maintaining any Eurodollar Rate Loans, or participating in Letters of Credit, or, in the case of the Issuing Bank, any increase in the cost to the Issuing Bank of agreeing to issue, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit or of agreeing to make or making, funding or maintaining any unpaid drawing under any Letter of Credit, then the Borrowers shall be liable for, and shall from time to time, upon demand (with a copy of such demand to be sent to the Agent), pay to the Agent for the account of such Bank or the Issuing Bank, as the case may be, additional amounts as are sufficient to compensate such Bank or the Issuing Bank, as the case may be, for such increased costs. (b) If (i) the introduction of any Capital Adequacy Regulation, (ii) any change in any Capital Adequacy Regulation, (iii) any change in the interpretation or administration of any Capital Adequacy Regulation by any central bank or other Governmental Authority charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or (iv) compliance by any Bank (or its Lending Office) or any corporation controlling the Bank with any Capital Adequacy Regulation, in each case occurring after the date hereof, affects or would affect the amount of capital required or expected to be maintained by the Bank or any corporation controlling the Bank and (taking into consideration such Bank's or such corporation's commercially reasonable policies with respect to capital adequacy and such Bank's or such corporation's desired return on capital) the amount of such capital is increased as a consequence of its Commitment, loans, credits or obligations under this Agreement, then, upon written demand of such Bank to the Borrowers through the Agent, the Borrowers shall pay to the Bank, from time to time as specified by the Bank or such controlling corporation, additional amounts sufficient to compensate the Bank for such increase. 4.4 Funding Losses. Excluding losses or expenses incurred by a Bank pursuant to Section 4.2, the Borrowers shall reimburse each Bank and hold each Bank harmless from any loss or expense (but excluding in any event all consequential or exemplary damages) which the Bank may sustain or incur as a consequence of: (a) the failure of the Borrowers to make on a timely basis any payment of principal of any Eurodollar Rate Loan; 54

(b) the failure of the Borrowers to borrow, continue or convert into a Eurodollar Rate Loan after the Borrowers have given (or are deemed to have given) a Notice of Borrowing or a Notice of Conversion/Continuation (except as a result of a breach by a Bank of its obligations hereunder); (c) the failure of the Borrowers to make any prepayment in accordance with any notice delivered under Section 2.6; (d) the repayment or prepayment (including pursuant to Section 2.7) or other payment (including after acceleration thereof) of a Eurodollar Rate Loan on a day that is not the last day of the relevant Interest Period; or (e) the automatic conversion under Section 2.4 of any Eurodollar Rate Loan to a Base Rate Loan on a day that is not the last day of the relevant Interest Period; including any such loss or expense arising from the liquidation or reemployment of funds obtained by it to maintain its Eurodollar Rate Loans or from fees payable to terminate the deposits from which such funds were obtained. For purposes of calculating amounts payable by the Borrowers to the Banks under this Section and under Section 4.3(a), each Eurodollar Rate Loan made by a Bank (and each related reserve, special deposit or similar requirement) shall be conclusively deemed to have been funded at the IBOR used in determining the Eurodollar Rate for such Eurodollar Rate Loan by matching deposit or other borrowing in the interbank eurodollar market for a comparable amount and for a comparable period, whether or not such Eurodollar Rate Loan is in fact so funded. Each Bank shall exercise its reasonable efforts to minimize such losses, costs and expenses, except that each Bank shall not be obligated to take any action to reduce net balances due to its non-U.S. offices from its U.S. offices. 4.5 Inability to Determine Rates. If the Agent or the Required Banks determine that for any reason adequate and reasonable means do not exist for determining the Eurodollar Rate for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed Eurodollar Rate Loan, or that the Eurodollar Rate applicable pursuant to Section 2.9(a) for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed Eurodollar Rate Loan does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to the Banks of funding such Loan, the Agent will promptly so notify the Borrowers and each Bank. Thereafter, the obligation of the Banks to make or maintain Eurodollar Rate Loans hereunder shall be suspended until the Agent upon the instruction of the Required Banks revokes such notice in writing. Upon receipt of such notice, the Borrowers may revoke any Notice of Borrowing or Notice of Conversion/Continuation then submitted by it. If the Borrowers do not revoke such Notice, the Banks shall make, convert or continue the Loans, as proposed by the Borrowers, in the amount specified in the applicable notice submitted by the Borrowers, but such Loans shall be made, converted or continued as Base Rate Loans instead of Eurodollar Rate Loans. 4.6 Certificates of Banks. Except as specifically provided in Section 4.1, any Bank claiming reimbursement or compensation under this Article IV shall deliver to the Borrowers (with a copy to the Agent) a certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the amount payable to the Bank hereunder and the circumstances giving rise to such claim, and such certificate shall be prima facie evidence of the correctness thereof. Each Bank agrees to deliver such certificate to 55

the Borrowers within reasonable time after it determines the additional amount required to be paid under this Article IV; provided, however, that in no event shall any Bank deliver such Certificate to the Borrowers more than 180 days after any vice-president of such Bank knows, or upon the discharge of such vice-president's duties in the ordinary course should have known, of the occurrence of an event giving rise to the additional amount required to be paid in respect of this Article IV and if it fails to deliver such Certificate within such 180 day period, the Borrowers will not be obligated for any costs incurred prior to 180 days before such notice. The Borrowers shall pay such Bank the amount shown as due on any such certificate timely delivered in accordance with the foregoing within ten days after its receipt of the same; provided, however, that the Borrowers shall not be required to pay any amounts (other than with respect to Taxes under Section 4.1) which were due for any period occurring more than 90 days prior to the Borrowers' receipt of such certificate (other than periods with respect to which such costs or expenses are retroactively imposed). This Article IV shall survive termination of this Agreement and payment of the outstanding Notes. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Article IV, the Borrowers shall not be liable for any increased cost pursuant to this Article IV if and to the extent that such increased cost results from the change in any Bank's Lending Office and such change (x) is made solely in the discretion of such Bank and not required by any applicable Requirement of Law or Governmental Authority, (y) is made for such Bank's benefit and without any benefit to the Borrowers, and (z) results, at the time of such change, in an increased cost greater than that which would have been incurred had the Bank not so changed its Lending Office. Each Bank shall use its reasonable efforts to avoid or minimize increased costs under this Article IV unless, in the sole opinion of such Bank, such action would adversely affect it. 4.7 Substitution of Banks. Upon the receipt by the Borrowers from any Bank (an "Affected Bank") of a claim for compensation under Section 4.3, the Borrowers may: (i) request the Affected Bank to use its best efforts to obtain a replacement bank or financial institution satisfactory to the Borrowers to acquire and assume all or a ratable part of all of such Affected Bank's Loans and Commitments (a "Replacement Bank"); (ii) request one or more of the other Banks to acquire and assume all or part of such Affected Bank's Loans and Commitments; or (iii) designate a Replacement Bank. Any such designation of a Replacement Bank under clause (i) or (iii) shall be subject to the prior written consent of the Agent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld); provided, that any Replacement Bank shall meet the requirements to be an Eligible Assignee and shall purchase the same pro rata share of the Loans, L/C Obligations, L/C Borrowings and the Acquisition Commitment and the Revolving Commitment and the replacement shall be made pursuant to an assignment subject to the provisions of Section 11.9. 4.8 Survival. The agreements and obligations of the Borrowers, the Agent and the Banks in this Article IV shall survive the payment of all other Obligations.

ARTICLE X THE AGENT 10.1 Appointment and Authorization. (a) Each Bank hereby irrevocably appoints, designates and authorizes the Agent to take such action on its behalf under the provisions of this Agreement and each other Loan Document and to exercise such powers and perform such duties as are expressly delegated to it by the terms of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained elsewhere herein or in any other Loan Document, the Agent shall not have any duties or responsibilities, except those expressly set forth herein, nor shall the Agent have or be deemed to have any fiduciary relationship with any Bank or participant, and no 101

implied covenants, functions, responsibilities, duties, obligations or liabilities shall be read into this Agreement or any other Loan Document or otherwise exist against the Agent. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing sentence, the use of the term "agent" herein and in the other Loan Documents with reference to the Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under agency doctrine of any applicable law. Instead, such term is used merely as a matter of market custom, and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between independent contracting parties. (b) The Issuing Bank shall act on behalf of the Banks with respect to any Letters of Credit issued by it and the documents associated therewith, and the Issuing Bank shall have all of the benefits and immunities (i) provided to the Agent in this Article X with respect to any acts taken or omissions suffered by the Issuing Bank in connection with Letters of Credit issued by it or proposed to be issued by it and the applications and agreements for letters of credit pertaining to such Letters of Credit as fully as if the term "Agent" as used in this Article X and in the definition of "Agent-Related Person" included the Issuing Bank with respect to such acts or omissions, and (ii) as additionally provided herein with respect to the Issuing Bank. 10.2 Delegation of Duties. The Agent may execute any of its duties under this Agreement or any other Loan Document by or through agents, employees or attorneys-in-fact and shall be entitled to advice of counsel and other consultants or experts concerning all matters pertaining to such duties. The Agent shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any agent or attorney-in-fact that it selects in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct. 10.3 Liability of Agent. No Agent-Related Person shall (a) be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by any of them under or in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document or the transactions contemplated hereby (except for its own gross negligence or willful misconduct in connection with its duties expressly set forth herein), or (b) be responsible in any manner to any Bank or participant for any recital, statement, representation or warranty made by any Obligor or any officer thereof, contained herein or in any other Loan Document, or in any certificate, report, statement or other document referred to or provided for in, or received by the Agent under or in connection with, this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or the validity, effectiveness, genuineness, enforceability or sufficiency of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or for any failure of any Obligor or any other party to any Loan Document to perform its obligations hereunder or thereunder. No Agent-Related Person shall be under any obligation to any Bank or participant to ascertain or to inquire as to the observance or performance of any of the agreements contained in, or conditions of, this Agreement or any other Loan Document, or to inspect the properties, books or records of any Obligor or any Affiliate thereof. 10.4 Reliance by Agent. (a) The Agent shall be entitled to rely, and shall be fully protected in relying, upon any writing, communication, signature, resolution, representation, notice, consent, certificate, affidavit, letter, telegram, facsimile, telex or telephone message, electronic mail message, statement or other document or conversation believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed, sent or made by the proper Person or Persons, and upon advice and statements of legal counsel (including counsel to any Obligor), independent accountants and other experts selected by the Agent. The Agent shall be fully justified in failing 102

or refusing to take any action under any Loan Document unless it shall first receive such advice or concurrence of the Required Banks as it deems appropriate and, if it so requests, it shall first be indemnified to its satisfaction by the Banks against any and all liability and expense which may be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action. The Agent shall in all cases be fully protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, under this Agreement or any other Loan Document in accordance with a request or consent of the Required Banks (or such greater number of Banks as may be expressly required hereby in any instance) and such request and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto shall be binding upon all the Banks. (b) For purposes of determining compliance with the conditions specified in Section 5.1, each Bank that has signed this Agreement shall be deemed to have consented to, approved or accepted or to be satisfied with, each document or other matter required thereunder to be consented to or approved by or acceptable or satisfactory to a Bank unless the Agent shall have received notice from such Bank prior to the proposed Restatement Effective Date specifying its objection thereto. 10.5 Notice of Default. The Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge or notice of the occurrence of any Default, except with respect to defaults in the payment of principal, interest and fees required to be paid to the Agent for the account of the Banks, unless the Agent shall have received written notice from a Bank or the Borrowers referring to this Agreement, describing such Default and stating that such notice is a "notice of default." The Agent will notify the Banks of its receipt of any such notice. The Agent shall take such action with respect to such Default as may be directed by the Required Banks in accordance with Article IX; provided, however, that unless and until the Agent has received any such direction, the Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such Default as it shall deem advisable or in the best interest of the Banks. 10.6 Credit Decision. Each Bank acknowledges that no Agent-Related Person has made any representation or warranty to it, and that no act by the Agent hereafter taken, including any consent to and acceptance of any assignment or review of the affairs of any Obligor or any Affiliate thereof, shall be deemed to constitute any representation or warranty by any Agent-Related Person to any Bank as to any matter, including whether Agent-Related Persons have disclosed material information in their possession. Each Bank represents to the Agent that it has, independently and without reliance upon any Agent-Related Person and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own appraisal of and investigation into the business, prospects, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Obligors and their respective Subsidiaries, and all applicable bank or other regulatory laws relating to the transactions contemplated hereby, and made its own decision to enter into this Agreement and to extend credit to the Borrowers and the other Obligors hereunder. Each Bank also represents that it will, independently and without reliance upon any Agent-Related Person and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit analysis, appraisals and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and to make such investigations as it deems necessary to inform itself as to the business, prospects, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Borrowers and the other Obligors. Except for notices, reports and other documents expressly required to be furnished to the Banks by the Agent herein, the Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to 103

provide any Bank with any credit or other information concerning the business, prospects, operations, property, financial and other condition or creditworthiness of any of the Obligors or any of their respective Affiliates which may come into the possession of any Agent-Related Person. 10.7 Indemnification. Whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby are consummated, the Banks shall indemnify upon demand each Agent-Related Person (to the extent not reimbursed by or on behalf of any Obligor and without limiting the obligation of any Obligor to do so), pro rata, and hold harmless each Agent-Related Person from and against any and all Indemnified Liabilities incurred by it; provided, however, that no Bank shall be liable for the payment to any Agent-Related Person of any portion of such Indemnified Liabilities to the extent determined in a final, nonappealable judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from such Agent-Related Person's own gross negligence or willful misconduct; provided, however, that no action taken in accordance with the directions of the Required Banks shall be deemed to constitute gross negligence or willful misconduct for purposes of this Section. Without limitation of the foregoing, each Bank shall reimburse the Agent upon demand for its ratable share of any costs or out-of-pocket expenses (including Attorney Costs) incurred by the Agent in connection with the preparation, execution, delivery, administration, modification, amendment or enforcement (whether through negotiations, legal proceedings or otherwise) of, or legal advice in respect of rights or responsibilities under, this Agreement, any other Loan Document, or any document contemplated by or referred to herein, to the extent that the Agent is not reimbursed for such expenses by or on behalf of the Borrowers. The undertaking in this Section shall survive termination of the Commitments, the payment of all other Obligations and the resignation of the Agent. 10.8 Agent in Individual Capacity. Bank of America and its Affiliates may make loans to, issue letters of credit for the account of, accept deposits from, acquire equity interests in and generally engage in any kind of banking, trust, financial advisory, underwriting or other business with each of the Obligors and their respective Affiliates as though Bank of America were not the Agent or the Issuing Bank hereunder and without notice to or consent of the Banks. The Banks acknowledge that, pursuant to such activities, Bank of America or its Affiliates may receive information regarding any Obligor or its Affiliates (including information that may be subject to confidentiality obligations in favor of such Obligor or such Affiliate) and acknowledge that the Agent shall be under no obligation to provide such information to them. With respect to its Loans, Bank of America shall have the same rights and powers under this Agreement as any other Bank and may exercise such rights and powers as though it were not the Agent or the Issuing Bank, and the terms "Bank" and "Banks" include Bank of America in its individual capacity. 10.9 Successor Agent. The Agent may resign as Agent upon 30 days' notice to the Banks; provided, that any such resignation by Bank of America shall also constitute its resignation as Issuing Bank and Swing Line Bank. If the Agent resigns under this Agreement, the Required Banks shall appoint from among the Banks a successor administrative agent for the Banks, which successor administrative agent shall be consented to by the Borrowers at all times other than during the existence of an Event of Default (which consent of the Borrowers shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed). If no successor administrative agent is appointed prior to the effective date of the resignation of the Agent, the Agent may appoint, after consulting with 104

the Banks and the Borrowers, a successor administrative agent from among the Banks. Upon the acceptance of its appointment as successor administrative agent hereunder, the Person acting as such successor administrative agent shall succeed to all the rights, powers and duties of the retiring Agent, Issuing Bank and Swing Line Bank and the respective terms "Agent," "Issuing Bank" and "Swing Line Bank" shall mean such successor administrative agent, Letter of Credit issuer and swing line bank, and the retiring Agent's appointment, powers and duties as Agent shall be terminated and the retiring Issuing Bank's and Swing Line Bank's rights, powers and duties as such shall be terminated, without any other or further act or deed on the part of such retiring Issuing Bank, Swing Line Bank or any other Bank, other than the obligation of the successor Issuing Bank to issue letters of credit in substitution for the Letters of Credit, if any, outstanding at the time of such succession or to make other arrangements satisfactory to the retiring Issuing Bank to effectively assume the obligations of the retiring Issuing Bank with respect to such Letters of Credit. After any retiring Agent's resignation hereunder as Agent, the provisions of this Article X and Sections 11.4 and 11.5 shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was Agent under this Agreement. If no successor administrative agent has accepted appointment as Agent by the date which is 30 days following a retiring Agent's notice of resignation, the retiring Agent's resignation shall nevertheless thereupon become effective and the Banks shall perform all of the duties of the Agent hereunder until such time, if any, as the Required Banks appoint a successor agent as provided for above. 10.10 Agent May File Proofs of Claim. In case of the pendency of any receivership, insolvency, liquidation, bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, adjustment, composition or other judicial proceeding relative to any Obligor, the Agent (irrespective of whether the principal of any Loan or L/C Obligation shall then be due and payable as herein expressed or by declaration or otherwise and irrespective of whether the Agent shall have made any demand on the Borrowers) shall be entitled and empowered, by intervention in such proceeding or otherwise (a) to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of the principal and interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Loans, L/C Obligations and all other Obligations that are owing and unpaid and to file such other documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Banks and the Agent (including any claim for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Banks and the Agent and their respective agents and counsel and all other amounts due the Banks and the Agent under Sections 2.10, 3.8 and 11.4) allowed in such judicial proceeding; and (b) to collect and receive any monies or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same; and any custodian, receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator, sequestrator or other similar official in any such judicial proceeding is hereby authorized by each Bank to make such payments to the Agent and, in the event that the Agent shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Banks, to pay to the Agent any amount due for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Agent and its agents and counsel, and any other amounts due the Agent under Sections 2.10 and 11.4. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to authorize the Agent to authorize or consent to or accept or adopt on behalf of any Bank any plan of reorganization, arrangement, adjustment 105

or composition affecting the Obligations or the rights of any Bank or to authorize the Agent to vote in respect of the claim of any Bank in any such proceeding. 10.11 Collateral and Guaranty Matters. The Banks irrevocably authorize the Agent, at its option and in its discretion, (a) to release any Lien on any property granted to or held by the Agent under any Loan Document (i) upon termination of the Commitments and payment in full of all Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations) and the expiration or termination of all Letters of Credit, (ii) that is sold or to be sold as part of or in connection with any sale permitted hereunder or under any other Loan Document, or (iii) subject to Section 11.1, if approved, authorized or ratified in writing by the Required Banks; (b) to subordinate any Lien on any property granted to or held by the Agent under any Loan Document to the holder of any Purchase Money Lien; (c) to release any Restricted Subsidiary from its obligations under the Subsidiary Guarantee if such Person ceases to be a Subsidiary as a result of a transaction permitted hereunder; and (d) to enter into the Collateral Agency Agreement and agree to be bound by the terms thereof. Upon request by the Agent at any time, each Bank will confirm in writing the Agent's authority to release or subordinate its interest in particular types or items of property, or to release any Restricted Subsidiary from its obligations under the Subsidiary Guarantee pursuant to this Section 10.11. 10.12 Other Agents; Arrangers and Managers. None of the Banks or other Persons identified on the facing page or signature pages of this Agreement as a "syndication agent," "co-documentation agent," "co-agent," "book manager," "lead manager," "arranger," "lead arranger" or "co-arranger" shall have any right, power, obligation, liability, responsibility or duty under this Agreement other than, in the case of such Banks, those applicable to all Banks as such. Without limiting the foregoing, none of the Banks or other Persons so identified shall have or be deemed to have any fiduciary relationship with any Bank. Each Bank acknowledges that it has not relied, and will not rely, on any of the Banks or other Persons so identified in deciding to enter into this Agreement or in taking or not taking action hereunder. 10.13 Withholding Tax. (a) (i) Each Bank that is not a "United States person" within the meaning of Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code (a "Foreign Bank") shall deliver to the Agent, prior to receipt of any payment subject to withholding under the Code (or upon accepting an assignment of an interest herein), two duly signed completed copies of either IRS Form W-8BEN or any successor thereto (relating to such Foreign Bank and entitling it to an exemption from, or reduction of, withholding tax on all payments to be made to such Foreign Bank by the Borrowers pursuant to this Agreement) or IRS Form W-8ECI or any successor thereto (relating to all payments to be made to such Foreign Bank by the Borrowers pursuant to this Agreement) or such other evidence satisfactory to the Borrowers and the Agent that such Foreign Bank is entitled to an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. withholding tax, including any exemption 106

pursuant to Section 881(c) of the Code. Thereafter and from time to time, each such Foreign Bank shall (A) promptly submit to the Agent such additional duly completed and signed copies of one of such forms (or such successor forms as shall be adopted from time to time by the relevant United States taxing authorities) as may then be available under then current United States laws and regulations to avoid, or such evidence as is satisfactory to the Borrowers and the Agent of any available exemption from or reduction of, United States withholding taxes in respect of all payments to be made to such Foreign Bank by the Borrowers pursuant to this Agreement, (B) promptly notify the Agent of any change in circumstances which would modify or render invalid any claimed exemption or reduction, and (C) take such steps as shall not be materially disadvantageous to it, in the reasonable judgment of such Bank, and as may be reasonably necessary (including the re-designation of its Lending Office) to avoid any requirement of applicable laws that the Borrowers make any deduction or withholding for taxes from amounts payable to such Foreign Bank. (ii) Each Foreign Bank, to the extent it does not act or ceases to act for its own account with respect to any portion of any sums paid or payable to such Bank under any of the Loan Documents (for example, in the case of a typical participation by such Bank), shall deliver to the Agent on the date when such Foreign Bank ceases to act for its own account with respect to any portion of any such sums paid or payable, and at such other times as may be necessary in the determination of the Agent (in the reasonable exercise of its discretion), (A) two duly signed completed copies of the forms or statements required to be provided by such Bank as set forth above, to establish the portion of any such sums paid or payable with respect to which such Bank acts for its own account that is not subject to U.S. withholding tax, and (B) two duly signed completed copies of IRS Form W-8IMY (or any successor thereto), together with any information such Bank chooses to transmit with such form, and any other certificate or statement of exemption required under the Code, to establish that such Bank is not acting for its own account with respect to a portion of any such sums payable to such Bank. (iii) The Borrowers shall not be required to pay any additional amount to any Foreign Bank under Section 4.1 (A) with respect to any Taxes required to be deducted or withheld on the basis of the information, certificates or statements of exemption such Bank transmits with an IRS Form W-8BEN, W-8ECI or W-8IMY pursuant to this Section 10.13(a) or (B) if such Bank shall have failed to satisfy the foregoing provisions of this Section 10.13(a); provided that if such Bank shall have satisfied the requirement of this Section 10.13(a) on the date such Bank became a Bank or ceased to act for its own account with respect to any payment under any of the Loan Documents, nothing in this Section 10.13(a) shall relieve the Borrowers of their obligation to pay any amounts pursuant to Section 4.1 in the event that, as a result of any change in any applicable law, treaty or governmental rule, regulation or order, or any change in the interpretation, administration or application thereof, such Bank is no longer properly entitled to deliver forms, certificates or other evidence at a subsequent date establishing the fact that such Bank or other Person for the account of which such Bank receives any sums payable under any of the Loan Documents is not subject to withholding or is subject to withholding at a reduced rate. (iv) The Agent may, without reduction, withhold any Taxes required to be deducted and withheld from any payment under any of the Loan Documents with respect to which the Borrowers are not required to pay additional amounts under Section 4.1. 107

(b) Upon the request of the Agent, each Bank that is a "United States person" within the meaning of Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code shall deliver to the Agent two duly signed completed copies of IRS Form W-9. If such Bank fails to deliver such forms, then the Agent may withhold from any interest payment to such Bank an amount equivalent to the applicable back-up withholding tax imposed by the Code, without reduction. (c) If any Governmental Authority asserts that the Agent did not properly withhold or backup withhold, as the case may be, any tax or other amount from payments made to or for the account of any Bank, such Bank shall indemnify the Agent therefor, including all penalties and interest, any taxes imposed by any jurisdiction on the amounts payable to the Agent under this Section, and costs and expenses (including Attorney Costs) of the Agent. The obligation of the Banks under this Section shall survive the termination of the Commitments, repayment of all other Obligations hereunder and the resignation of the Agent. ARTICLE XI MISCELLANEOUS 11.1 Amendments and Waivers. No amendment or waiver of any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, and no consent to any departure by any Borrower or any other Obligor therefrom, shall be effective unless in writing signed by the Required Banks and the Borrowers, and acknowledged by the Agent, and each such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given; provided, however, that no such amendment, waiver or consent shall, unless in writing and signed by all the Banks and the Borrowers do any of the following: (a) waive any condition set forth in subsection (a), (b), (c)(i), (d), (h), (j), (k) or (m) of Section 5.1 without the written consent of each Bank; (b) increase or extend the Commitment of any Bank (or reinstate any Commitment terminated pursuant to Section 9.2); (c) postpone or delay any date fixed by this Agreement or any other Loan Document for any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts due to the Banks (or any of them) hereunder or under any other Loan Document (d) reduce the principal of, or the rate of interest specified herein on any Loan, or (subject to clause (iv) below) any fees or other amounts payable hereunder or under any other Loan Document; (e) change the definition of "Required Banks" or change the percentage of the Commitments or of the aggregate unpaid principal amount of the Loans which is required for the Banks or any of them to take any action hereunder; or (f) amend this Section, or Section 2.14, or any provision herein providing for consent or other action by all Banks; or (g) release all or substantially all the collateral securing the Obligations; 108

and, provided, further, that (i) no amendment, waiver or consent shall, unless in writing and signed by the Agent in addition to the Required Banks or all the Banks, as the case may be, affect the rights or duties of the Agent under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, (ii) no amendment, waiver or consent shall, unless in writing and signed by the Issuing Bank in addition to the Required Banks or all the Banks, as the case may be, affect the rights or duties of the Issuing Bank under this Agreement or any L/C-Related Documents relating to any Letter of Credit Issued or to be Issued by it, (iii) no amendment, waiver or consent shall, unless in writing and signed by the Swing Line Bank in addition to the Banks required above, affect the rights or duties of the Swing Line Bank under this Agreement and (iv) the Fee Letters may be amended, or rights or privileges thereunder waived, in a writing executed by the parties thereto. In connection with a proposed merger, consolidation or sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company in accordance with Section 8.8(a)(iii) or (b)(iii) to a corporation, the parties agree (i) to effect, simultaneously with such transaction, all necessary and appropriate modifications to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and License Agreements to which it is a party (including without limitation the ability of the Company to make payments under Section 8.5, taking into account the effect of any change in the tax status of the Company on its financial condition and the applicable financial covenants) to reflect the corporate existence of such successor corporation and any other matters in form acceptable to the Required Banks, provided, that such modified terms and conditions convey to the parties substantially the same rights and obligations provided under the Loan Documents and License Agreements to which it is a party immediately prior to such transaction, and (ii) that any Default described in Section 9.1(j) which would result from such transaction shall not be asserted by the Agent or any Bank if after giving effect to such transaction UGI shall own directly or indirectly at least 51% of the voting shares of the corporation that is the successor to the Company. In the event a Bank or Participant (as hereinafter defined) shall refuse to enter into or consent to any amendment, waiver or other modification of any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, and such Bank's or Participant's consent is necessary for such amendment, waiver or modification to become effective, the Borrowers may pay Obligations (including, with respect to Letter of Credit, cash collateralization of an interest therein) outstanding to any such nonconsenting Bank or to any originating Bank having participated interests to any such nonconsenting Participant and reduce or eliminate any such Bank's Commitment; provided, that the Borrowers may take such action only if Banks representing at least 80% of the outstanding Commitments necessary therefor have entered into or consented to such amendment, waiver or modification and no Default or Event of Default then exists. 11.2 Notices and Other Communications; Facsimile Copies. (a) General. Unless otherwise expressly provided herein, all notices and other communications provided for hereunder shall be in writing (including by facsimile transmission). All such written notices shall be mailed, faxed or delivered to the applicable address, facsimile number or (subject to subsection (c) below) electronic mail address, and all notices and other communications expressly permitted hereunder to be given by telephone shall be made to the applicable telephone number, if to the Borrowers, the Agent, the Issuing Bank, the Swing Line Bank or any Bank, to the address, facsimile number, electronic mail address or telephone number specified for such Person on Schedule 11.2 or to such other address, facsimile number, electronic mail address or 109

telephone number as shall be designated by such party in a notice to the other parties. All such notices and other communications shall be deemed to be given or made upon the earlier to occur of (i) actual receipt by the relevant party hereto and (ii) (A) if delivered by hand or by courier, when signed for by or on behalf of the relevant party hereto; (B) if delivered by mail, four Business Days after deposit in the mails, postage prepaid; (C) if delivered by facsimile, when sent and receipt has been confirmed by telephone; and (D) if delivered by electronic mail (which form of delivery is subject to the provisions of subsection (c) below), when delivered; provided, however, that notices and other communications to the Agent, the Issuing Bank and the Swing Line Bank pursuant to Articles II and III shall not be effective until actually received by such Person. In no event shall a voicemail message be effective as a notice, communication or confirmation hereunder. (b) Effectiveness of Facsimile Documents and Signatures. Loan Documents may be transmitted and/or signed by facsimile. The effectiveness of any such documents and signatures shall, subject to applicable law, have the same force and effect as manually-signed originals and shall be binding on all Obligors, the Agent and the Banks. The Agent may also require that any such documents and signatures be confirmed by a manually-signed original thereof; provided, however, that the failure to request or deliver the same shall not limit the effectiveness of any facsimile document or signature. (c) Limited Use of Electronic Mail. Electronic mail and Internet and intranet websites may be used only to distribute routine communications, such as financial statements and other information as provided in Section 7.1, and to distribute Loan Documents for execution by the parties thereto, and may not be used for any other purpose. (d) Reliance by Agent and Banks. The Agent and the Banks shall be entitled to rely and act upon any notices (including telephonic Notices of Borrowing) purportedly given by or on behalf of the Borrowers even if (i) such notices were not made in a manner specified herein, were incomplete or were not preceded or followed by any other form of notice specified herein, or (ii) the terms thereof, as understood by the recipient, varied from any confirmation thereof. The Borrowers shall indemnify each Agent-Related Person and each Bank from all losses, costs, expenses and liabilities resulting from the reliance by such Person on each notice purportedly given by or on behalf of the Borrowers. All telephonic notices to and other communications with the Agent may be recorded by the Agent, and each of the parties hereto hereby consents to such recording. 11.3 No Waiver; Cumulative Remedies. No failure to exercise and no delay in exercising, on the part of the Agent or any Bank, any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder, shall operate as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power or privilege. 11.4 Costs and Expenses. The Borrowers shall: (a) whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby are consummated, pay or reimburse Bank of America (including in its capacity as Agent) within five Business Days after demand and receipt by the Borrowers of reasonable supporting documentation (subject to 110

Section 5.1(d)) for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Bank of America (including in its capacity as Agent) in connection with the development, preparation, delivery, administration and execution of this Agreement, any Loan Document and any other documents prepared in connection herewith or therewith, and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby, including Attorney Costs (excluding allocated costs of internal legal counsel) incurred by Bank of America (including in its capacity as Agent) with respect thereto; and (b) pay or reimburse the Agent within five Business Days after demand and receipt by the Borrowers of reasonable supporting documentation for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the Agent in connection with any amendment, supplement, waiver or modification to (in each case, whether or not consummated), this Agreement, any Loan Document and any other documents prepared in connection herewith or therewith, and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby, including Attorney Costs incurred by the Agent with respect thereto (provided, that the fees of any law firm or other external counsel, and the allocated costs of internal legal services, shall not both be reimbursed with respect to any amendment, supplement, waiver or modification relating to the same or any substantially similar matter); and (c) pay or reimburse the Agent, the Arranger and each Bank within five Business Days after demand and receipt by the Borrowers of reasonable supporting documentation (subject to Section 5.1(d)) for all reasonable costs and expenses (including Attorney Costs) incurred by them in connection with the enforcement, attempted enforcement, or preservation of any rights or remedies under this Agreement or any other Loan Document during the existence of an Event of Default or after acceleration of the Loans (including in connection with any "workout" or restructuring regarding the Loans, and including in any Insolvency Proceeding or appellate proceeding). The foregoing costs and expenses shall include all search, filing, recording, title insurance and fees and taxes related thereto incurred by the Agent, and, with respect to those costs and expenses referred to in Section 11.4(b) or 11.4(c) above, the reasonable cost of independent public accountants, appraisers and other outside experts retained by the Agent. The agreements in this Section shall survive the termination of the Commitments and repayment of all other Obligations. 11.5 Indemnity. Whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby are consummated, the Borrowers shall indemnify and hold harmless each Agent-Related Person, each Bank and their respective affiliates, directors, officers, employees and agents (collectively, the "Indemnified Parties") from and against any and all losses, claims, damages (other than consequential or exemplary damages), liabilities and reasonable out-of-pocket expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel, amounts paid in settlement and court costs) (collectively, the "Indemnified Liabilities") which may be incurred by any such Indemnified Party as a result of a claim by a third party or asserted by a third party against any such Indemnified Party, in each case, in connection with or arising out of or in any way relating to or resulting from any transaction or proposed transaction (whether or not consummated) contemplated to be financed with the proceeds of any Loan or other financial accommodation contemplated hereby, and the Borrowers hereby agree to reimburse each such Indemnified Party for any Attorneys' Costs or other out-of-pocket expenses incurred in 111

connection with investigating, defending or participating in any action or proceeding (whether or not such Indemnified Party is a party to such action or proceeding) out of which any such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses may arise; provided, however, that the Borrowers shall not be required to reimburse the expenses of more than one counsel for all Indemnified Parties except to the extent that different Indemnified Parties shall have conflicting interests. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Borrowers shall not be liable or responsible for losses, claims, damages, costs and expenses incurred by any Indemnified Party arising out of or relating to such Indemnified Party's own gross negligence or willful misconduct. If for any reason the indemnification provided for herein is unavailable to any Indemnified Party or insufficient to hold it harmless as and to the extent contemplated hereby, then the Borrowers hereby agree to contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Indemnified Party as a result of such loss, claim, damage, liability or expense in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative benefits received by the Borrowers, on the one hand, and such Indemnified Party, on the other hand, and also the respective fault of the Borrowers, on the one hand, and such Indemnified Party, on the other hand, as the case may be, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. This Section 11.5 shall survive the termination of this Agreement. 11.6 Joint and Several Liability. (a) The obligations of the Borrowers hereunder are joint and several. (b) The liability of each Borrower hereunder and under the Loan Documents shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable irrespective of: (i) any lack of validity, legality or enforceability of this Agreement, any Note or any other Loan Document as to any other Borrower; (ii) the failure of any Bank (A) to enforce any right or remedy against any Borrower or any other Person (including any guarantor or other Borrower) under the provisions of this Agreement, the Note, any other Loan Document or otherwise, or (B) to exercise any right or remedy against any guarantor of, or collateral securing, any Obligations; (iii) any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any other term of, all or any of the Obligations, or any other extension, compromise or renewal of any Obligations; (iv) any reduction, limitation, impairment or termination of any Obligations with respect to any other Borrower for any reason including any claim of waiver, release, surrender, alteration or compromise, and shall not be subject to (and each Borrower hereby waives any right to or claim of) any defense or setoff, counterclaim, recoupment or termination whatsoever by reason of the invalidity, illegality, nongenuineness, irregularity, compromise, unenforceability of, or any other event or occurrence affecting, any Obligations with respect to any other Borrower; 112

(v) any addition, exchange, release, surrender or nonperfection of any collateral, or any amendment to or waiver or release or addition of, or consent to departure from, any guaranty, held by any Bank securing any of the Obligations; or (vi) any other circumstance which might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a legal or equitable discharge of, any other Borrower, any surety or any guarantor. Each Borrower agrees that its joint and several liability hereunder shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time any payment (in whole or in part) of any of the Obligations is rescinded or must be restored by any Bank, upon the insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of any Borrower as though such payment had not been made. Each Borrower hereby expressly waives: (a) notice of the Banks' acceptance of this Agreement; (b) notice of the existence or creation or non-payment of all or any of the Obligations; (c) presentment, demand, notice of dishonor, protest, and all other notices whatsoever other than notices expressly provided for in this Agreement and (d) all diligence in collection or protection of or realization upon the Obligations or any thereof any obligation hereunder, or any security for or guaranty of any of the foregoing. No delay on any of the Banks' part in the exercise of any right or remedy shall operate as a waiver thereof, and no single or partial exercise by any of the Banks of any right or remedy, shall preclude other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or remedy. No action of any of the Banks permitted hereunder shall in any way affect or impair any such Banks' rights or Borrower's obligations under this Agreement. Each Borrower hereby represents and warrants to each of the Banks that it now has and will continue to have independent means of obtaining information concerning the other Borrowers' affairs, financial condition and business. The Banks shall not have any duty or responsibility to provide any Borrower with any credit or other information concerning the other Borrowers' affairs, financial condition or business which may come into the Banks' possession. Each of the Borrowers agrees that any action or notice which is required or authorized to be taken or given or received under this Agreement or any of the Loan Documents shall be taken, given or received by the Company acting on behalf of the other Borrowers (and not by Petrolane or the General Partner), and the other Borrowers agree to be bound by, and authorizes the Agent and each Bank to rely upon, any such action or notice as if fully authorized by each of the Borrowers. 11.7 Payments Set Aside. To the extent that the Borrowers make a payment to the Agent or the Banks, or the Agent or the Banks exercise their right of set-off, and such payment or the proceeds of such set-off or any part thereof are subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by the Agent or such Bank in its discretion) to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party, in connection with any Insolvency Proceeding or otherwise, then (a) to the extent of such recovery the obligation or part thereof originally intended to be satisfied shall be revived and continued in full force and effect as if such payment had not been made or such set-off had not 113

occurred, and (b) each Bank severally agrees to pay to the Agent upon demand its pro rata share of any amount so recovered from or repaid by the Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such payment is made at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Rate from time to time in effect. 11.8 Successors and Assigns. The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns, except that no Borrower may assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Agent and each Bank. Any attempted assignment in violation of this provision shall be null and void. 11.9 Assignments, Participations. etc. (a) Any Bank may, with the written consent of the Company, the Agent and the Issuing Bank, which consent of the Company shall not be unreasonably withheld, at any time assign and delegate to one or more Eligible Assignees (provided, that no written consent of the Company, the Agent or the Issuing Bank shall be required in connection with any assignment and delegation by a Bank to (x) an Eligible Assignee that is an Affiliate of such Bank or (y) another Bank (each an "Assignee")) all, or any ratable part of all, of the Loans, the Commitments and the other rights and obligations of such Bank hereunder, in a minimum amount of $5,000,000; provided, however, that the Borrowers, the Agent and the Issuing Bank may continue to deal solely and directly with such Bank in connection with the interest so assigned to an Assignee until (i) written notice of such assignment, together with payment instructions, addresses and related information with respect to the Assignee, shall have been given to the Company, the Agent and the Issuing Bank by such Bank and the Assignee; (ii) such Bank and its Assignee shall have delivered to the Borrowers, the Agent and the Issuing Bank an Assignment and Acceptance in the form of Exhibit F (an "Assignment and Acceptance") and (iii) the assignor Bank or Assignee has paid to the Agent a processing fee in the amount of $3,500; and provided, further, each Bank's Pro Rata Share shall be the same in each type of Commitment. (b) From and after the date that the Agent notifies the assignor Bank that it has received (and the Company, the Agent and the Issuing Bank have provided their consent with respect to) an executed Assignment and Acceptance and payment of the above-referenced processing fee, (i) the Assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned to it pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance, shall have the rights and obligations of a Bank under the Loan Documents, and (ii) the assignor Bank shall, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder and under the other Loan Documents have been assigned by it pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance, relinquish its rights and be released from its obligations under the Loan Documents (and, in the case of an Assignment and Acceptance covering all of the assigning Bank's rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Bank shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 4.1, 4.3, 4.4, 11.4 and 11.5 with respect to facts and circumstances occurring prior to the effective date of such assignment). (c) Within five Business Days after its receipt of notice by the Agent that it has received an executed Assignment and Acceptance and payment of the processing fee (and provided, that the Company consents to such assignment in accordance with Section 11.9(a)), the Borrowers shall, if requested by the Assignee or the assignor Bank thereunder, execute and 114

deliver to the Agent new Notes evidencing such Assignee's assigned Loans and Commitments and, if the assignor Bank has retained a portion of its Loans and its Commitment, replacement Notes in the principal amount of the Loans and Commitments retained by the assignor Bank (such Notes to be in exchange for, but not in payment of, the Notes held by such Bank) and the assignor Bank shall deliver its Note or Notes marked "exchanged" or "cancelled," as applicable, to the Agent. Immediately upon payment of the processing fee payment under the Assignment and Acceptance and the satisfaction of the other conditions set forth in Section 11.9(a), this Agreement shall be deemed to be amended to the extent, but only to the extent, necessary to reflect the addition of the Assignee and the resulting adjustment of the Commitments arising therefrom. The Commitment allocated to each Assignee shall reduce such Commitments of the assigning Bank pro tanto. (d) Any Bank may at any time sell to one or more commercial banks or other Persons not Affiliates of the Company (a "Participant") participating interests in any Loans, the Commitment of that Bank and the other interests of that Bank (the "originating Bank") hereunder and under the other Loan Documents; provided, however, that (i) the originating Bank's obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) the originating Bank shall remain solely responsible for the performance of such obligations, (iii) the Borrowers, the Agent, the Issuing Bank and the other Banks shall continue to deal solely and directly with the originating Bank in connection with the originating Bank's rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which a Bank sells such a participation shall provide that such Bank shall retain the sole right to enforce this Agreement and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement; provided that such agreement or instrument may provide that such Bank will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, waiver or other modification described in the first proviso to Section 11.1 that directly affects such Participant. In the case of any such participation, the Participant shall be entitled to the benefit of Sections 4.1, 4.3 and 11.5 as though it were also a Bank hereunder (but not in any greater amounts than would have been payable to the Bank selling the participation if no participation were sold), and not have any rights under this Agreement, or any of the other Loan Documents, and all amounts payable by the Company hereunder shall be determined as if such Bank had not sold such participation; except that, if amounts outstanding under this Agreement are due and unpaid, or shall have been declared or shall have become due and payable upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, each Participant shall be deemed to have the right of set-off in respect of its participating interest in amounts owing under this Agreement to the same extent as if the amount of its participating interest were owing directly to it as a Bank under this Agreement, provided such Participant agrees to be subject to Section 2.14 as though it were a Bank. (e) Nothing contained in this Agreement shall prevent a Bank from pledging its interest in its Loans to a Federal Reserve Bank in the Federal Reserve System of the United States in accordance with applicable law. (f) After payment in full of, and satisfaction of all Obligations under, any Note, the Bank or other party holding such Note agrees to promptly return such Note marked "Paid in Full" to the Company. 115

(g) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 11.9, no assignment or participation may be made if such assignment or participation involves, or could involve, the use of assets that constitute, or may be deemed under ERISA, the Code or any other applicable law, or any ruling or regulation issued thereunder, or any court decision, to constitute the assets of any employee benefit plan (as defined in section 3(3) of ERISA) or any plan as defined in section 4975(e)(1) of the Code). 11.10 Changes of Commitments. (a) On the Restatement Effective Date, each of the Banks which either (i) has a Revolving Commitment Percentage or Acquisition Commitment Percentage on the Restatement Effective Date that is less than its Existing Revolving Commitment Percentage or Existing Acquisition Commitment Percentage, as the case may be, immediately prior to such date or (ii) had a commitment under the Existing Credit Agreement immediately prior to the Restatement Effective Date but has no corresponding Revolving Commitment as of the Restatement Effective Date (each such Bank, a "Decreasing Bank") shall irrevocably assign, without recourse or warranty of any kind whatsoever (except that each Decreasing Bank warrants that it is the legal and beneficial owner of the Loans and any Notes assigned by it under this Section 11.10 and that such Loans and Notes are held by such Decreasing Bank free and clear of adverse claims), to each of the Banks which has a Revolving Commitment Percentage or Acquisition Commitment Percentage, as the case may be, on the Restatement Effective Date that is greater than its Existing Revolving Commitment Percentage or Existing Acquisition Commitment Percentage, as the case may be, immediately prior to such date (each such Bank, an "Increasing Bank"), and each of the Increasing Banks shall irrevocably acquire from the Decreasing Banks, (i) a portion of the principal amount of the Revolving Loans or Acquisition Loans, as the case may be, of each of the Decreasing Banks (collectively, the "Acquired Portion") outstanding on the Restatement Effective Date (before giving effect to any new Revolving Loans made on such date) in an amount such that the principal amount of the Revolving Loans held by each of the Increasing Banks and each of the Decreasing Banks as of the Restatement Effective Date shall be held in accordance with each such Bank's Revolving Commitment Percentage and Acquisition Commitment Percentage (if any) as of such date and (ii) any existing Notes evidencing such Acquired Portion, which existing Notes shall be amended and restated to accurately reflect the new payee and revised terms of the Loans evidenced thereby as amended by this Agreement and shall state that such amended and restated Note is given in renewal of the applicable previously issued Note or Notes. Such assignment and acquisition shall be effective on the Restatement Effective Date automatically and without any action required on the part of any party other than the payment by the Increasing Banks to the Agent for the account of the Decreasing Banks of an amount equal to the Acquired Portion, which amount shall be allocated to the Decreasing Banks pro rata based upon the respective reductions in the principal amount of the Revolving Loans and Acquisition Loans, as applicable, held by such Banks on the Restatement Effective Date (before giving effect to any new Revolving Loans made on such date). Each of the Agent and the Banks shall adjust its records accordingly to reflect the payment of the Acquired Portion and the changes in the Bank's Revolving Commitments and Acquisition Commitments. The payment to be made in respect of the Acquired Portion shall be made by the Increasing Banks to the Agent in Dollars in immediately available funds at or before 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the Restatement Effective Date, such payment to be made by the Increasing Banks pro rata based upon the respective increases in the principal amount of the Revolving Loans and Acquisition Loans held by such Banks on the Restatement Effective Date (before giving effect to any new Revolving 116

Loans made on such date). For purposes of this Section 11.10(a), (1) "Existing Revolving Commitment Percentage" means, with respect to any Bank, the ratio of (i) the amount of the Revolving Commitment of such Bank under the Existing Credit Agreement to (ii) the aggregate amount of the Revolving Commitments of all of the Banks under the Existing Credit Agreement, (2) "Existing Acquisition Commitment Percentage" means, with respect to any Bank, the ratio of (i) the amount of the Acquisition Commitment of such Bank under the Existing Credit Agreement to (ii) the aggregate amount of the Acquisition Commitments of all of the Banks under the Existing Credit Agreement, (3) "Revolving Commitment Percentage" means, with respect to any Bank, the ratio of (i) the amount of the Revolving Commitment of such Bank to (ii) the aggregate amount of the Revolving Commitments of all of the Banks and (4) "Acquisition Commitment Percentage" means, with respect to any Bank, the ratio of (i) the amount of the Acquisition Commitment of such Bank to (ii) the aggregate amount of the Acquisition Commitments of all of the Banks. (b) To the extent any of the Revolving Loans acquired by the Increasing Banks from the Decreasing Banks pursuant to Section 11.10(a) above are Offshore Rate Loans (as defined in the Existing Credit Agreement) and the Restatement Effective Date is not the last day of an Interest Period for such Loans, the Decreasing Banks shall be entitled to compensation from the Borrowers as provided in Section 4.4 of the Existing Credit Agreement (as if the Borrowers had prepaid such Loans in an amount equal to the Acquired Portion on the Restatement Effective Date). The payment made by the Increasing Banks in respect of the Acquired Portion shall constitute a Loan made by the Increasing Banks on the Restatement Effective Date, and to the extent any Loan acquired by the Increasing Banks on the Restatement Effective Date is an Offshore Rate Loan and such date is not the last day of an Interest Period for such Loan, such Loan shall accrue interest at the rate then applicable to such Loan until such last day; provided, however, that the Borrowers shall compensate the Increasing Banks for an amount equal to the amount, if any, by which the cost to the Increasing Banks of funding the amount of each such Loan in the respective market for the period from such date to the last day of the then Interest Period for such Loan exceeds such applicable rate. 11.11 Confidentiality. Each of the Agent and the Banks agrees to maintain the confidentiality of the Information (as defined below), except that Information may be disclosed (a) to its and its Affiliates' directors, officers, employees and agents, including accountants, legal counsel and other advisors (it being understood that the Persons to whom such disclosure is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Information and instructed to keep such Information confidential); (b) to the extent requested by any regulatory authority; (c) to the extent required by applicable laws or regulations or by any subpoena or similar legal process; (d) to any other party to this Agreement; (e) in connection with the exercise of any remedies hereunder or any suit, action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or the enforcement of rights hereunder; (f) subject to an agreement containing provisions substantially the same as those of this Section, to (i) any Eligible Assignee of or Participant in, or any prospective Eligible Assignee of or Participant in, any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement or (ii) any direct or indirect contractual counterparty or prospective counterparty (or such contractual counterparty's or prospective counterparty's professional advisor) to any credit derivative transaction relating to obligations of the Obligors; (g) with the written consent of the Borrowers; (h) to the extent such Information (i) becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section or (ii) becomes available to the Agent or any Bank on a nonconfidential 117

basis from a source other than the Borrowers; or (i) to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners or any other similar organization. In addition, the Agent and the Banks may disclose the existence of this Agreement and information about this Agreement to market data collectors, similar service providers to the lending industry, and service providers to the Agent and the Banks in connection with the administration and management of this Agreement, the other Loan Documents, the Commitments, and the Credit Extensions; provided, however, that information disclosed by the Agent or any Bank to any such market data collectors or similar service providers shall be of a type generally provided to such Persons in other transactions. For the purposes of this Section 11.11, "Information" means all information received from any Obligor relating to any Obligor or its business. Any Person required to maintain the confidentiality of Information as provided in this Section shall be considered to have complied with its obligation to do so if such Person has exercised the same degree of care to maintain the confidentiality of such Information as such Person would accord to its own confidential information. Each of the Agent, the Banks and the Participants shall promptly notify the Company of its receipt of any subpoena or similar process or authority, unless prohibited therefrom by the issuing Person. 11.12 Set-off. In addition to any rights and remedies of the Banks provided by law, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, each Bank is authorized at any time and from time to time, without prior notice to the Borrowers or any other Obligor, any such notice being waived by the Borrowers (on their own behalf and on behalf of each Obligor) to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) at any time held by, and other indebtedness at any time owing by, such Bank to or for the credit or the account of the respective Obligors against any and all Obligations owing to such Bank hereunder or under any other Loan Document, now or hereafter existing, irrespective of whether or not the Agent or such Bank shall have made demand under this Agreement or any other Loan Document and although such Obligations may be contingent or unmatured or denominated in a currency different from that of the applicable deposit or indebtedness. Each Bank agrees promptly to notify the Borrowers and the Agent after any such set-off and application made by such Bank; provided, however, that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application. 11.13 Notification of Addresses; etc. Each Bank shall notify the Agent in writing of any changes in the address to which notices to the Bank should be directed, of addresses of any Lending Office, of payment instructions in respect of all payments to be made to it hereunder and of such other administrative information as the Agent shall reasonably request. 11.14 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of separate counterparts, each of which, when so executed, shall be deemed an original, and all of said counterparts taken together shall be deemed to constitute but one and the same instrument. 11.15 Severability. The illegality or unenforceability of any provision of this Agreement or any instrument or agreement required hereunder shall not in any way affect or impair the legality or enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement or any instrument or agreement required hereunder. 118

11.16 No Third Parties Benefited. This Agreement is made and entered into for the sole protection and legal benefit of the Borrowers, the Banks, the Agent and the Agent-Related Persons, and their permitted successors and assigns, and no other Person shall be a direct or indirect legal beneficiary of, or have any direct or indirect cause of action or claim in connection with, this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents. 11.17 Governing Law and Jurisdiction. (a) THIS AGREEMENT AND THE NOTES SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK; PROVIDED, THAT THE AGENT AND THE BANKS SHALL RETAIN ALL RIGHTS ARISING UNDER FEDERAL LAW. (b) ANY LEGAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING WITH RESPECT TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT MAY BE BROUGHT IN THE COURTS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK OR OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK, AND BY EXECUTION AND DELIVERY OF THIS AGREEMENT, EACH OF THE BORROWERS, THE AGENT AND THE BANKS CONSENTS, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, FOR ITSELF AND IN RESPECT OF ITS PROPERTY, TO THE NON-EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OF THOSE COURTS. EACH OF THE BORROWERS, THE AGENT AND THE BANKS IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY OBJECTION, INCLUDING ANY OBJECTION TO THE LAYING OF VENUE OR BASED ON THE GROUNDS OF FORUM NON CONVENIENS, WHICH IT MAY NOW OR HEREAFTER HAVE TO THE BRINGING OF ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING IN SUCH JURISDICTION IN RESPECT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY DOCUMENT RELATED HERETO. THE BORROWERS, THE AGENT AND THE BANKS EACH WAIVE PERSONAL SERVICE OF ANY SUMMONS, COMPLAINT OR OTHER PROCESS, WHICH MAY BE MADE BY ANY OTHER MEANS PERMITTED BY NEW YORK LAW. 11.18 Waiver of Jury Trial. EACH OF THE BORROWERS, THE BANKS AND THE AGENT WAIVES ITS RIGHTS TO A TRIAL BY JURY OF ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION BASED UPON OR ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS, OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY, IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING OR OTHER LITIGATION OF ANY TYPE BROUGHT BY ANY OF THE PARTIES AGAINST ANY OTHER PARTY OR ANY AGENT-RELATED PERSON, PARTICIPANT OR ASSIGNEE, WHETHER WITH RESPECT TO CONTRACT CLAIMS, TORT CLAIMS, OR OTHERWISE. EACH OF THE BORROWERS, THE BANKS AND THE AGENT AGREES THAT ANY SUCH CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION SHALL BE TRIED BY A COURT TRIAL WITHOUT A JURY. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, THE PARTIES FURTHER AGREE THAT THEIR RESPECTIVE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IS WAIVED BY OPERATION OF THIS SECTION AS TO ANY ACTION, COUNTERCLAIM OR OTHER PROCEEDING WHICH SEEKS, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, TO CHALLENGE THE VALIDITY OR ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS OR ANY PROVISION HEREOF OR THEREOF. THIS WAIVER SHALL APPLY TO ANY SUBSEQUENT AMENDMENTS, RENEWALS, SUPPLEMENTS OR MODIFICATIONS TO THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS. 119

11.19 Entire Agreement. This Agreement, together with the other Loan Documents, comprises the complete and integrated agreement of the parties on the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersedes all prior agreements, written or oral, on such subject matter. In the event of any conflict between the provisions of this Agreement and those of any other Loan Document (other than the Collateral Agency Agreement or any other Security Document), the provisions of this Agreement shall control; provided, that the inclusion of supplemental rights or remedies in favor of the Agent, the Banks, the Collateral Agent or any holder of Parity Debt in any other Loan Document shall not be deemed a conflict with this Agreement. Each Loan Document was drafted with the joint participation of the respective parties thereto and shall be construed neither against nor in favor of any party, but rather in accordance with the fair meaning thereof. 11.20 Collateral Agency Agreement. THIS AGREEMENT IS SUBJECT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAINED IN THE COLLATERAL AGENCY AGREEMENT (AS DEFINED IN THIS AGREEMENT), WHICH COLLATERAL AGENCY AGREEMENT, AMONG OTHER THINGS, ESTABLISHES CERTAIN RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO THE SECURITY FOR THIS AGREEMENT AND THE SHARING OF PROCEEDS THEREOF WITH CERTAIN OTHER SECURED CREDITORS (AS DEFINED IN THE COLLATERAL AGENCY AGREEMENT). COPIES OF SUCH COLLATERAL AGENCY AGREEMENT WILL BE FURNISHED TO ANY BANK UPON REQUEST TO THE COMPANY. 11.21 Ratification and Confirmation of the Security Documents. Except as specifically amended by this Agreement, and the documents executed and delivered in connection herewith, each of the Security Documents, including without limitation the General Security Agreement, shall remain in full force and effect and are hereby ratified and confirmed. 11.22 Interest Rate Limitation. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in any Loan Document, the interest paid or agreed to be paid under the Loan Documents shall not exceed the maximum rate of non-usurious interest permitted by applicable law (the "Maximum Rate"). If the Agent or any Bank shall receive interest in an amount that exceeds the Maximum Rate, the excess interest shall be applied to the principal of the Loans or, if it exceeds such unpaid principal, refunded to the Borrower. In determining whether the interest contracted for, charged, or received by the Agent or a Bank exceeds the Maximum Rate, such Person may, to the extent permitted by applicable law, (a) characterize any payment that is not principal as an expense, fee, or premium rather than interest, (b) exclude voluntary prepayments and the effects thereof, and (c) amortize, prorate, allocate, and spread in equal or unequal parts the total amount of interest throughout the contemplated term of the Obligations hereunder. 11.23 Survival of Representations and Warranties. All representations and warranties made hereunder and in any other Loan Document or other document delivered pursuant hereto or thereto or in connection herewith or therewith shall survive the execution and delivery hereof and thereof. Such representations and warranties have been or will be relied upon by the Agent and each Bank, regardless of any investigation made by the Agent or any Bank or on their behalf and notwithstanding that the Agent or any Bank may have had notice or knowledge of any Default at the time of any Credit Extension, and shall continue in full force and effect as long as any Loan or any other Obligation hereunder shall remain unpaid or unsatisfied or any Letter of Credit shall remain outstanding. 120

("AmeriGas Partners") was formed on November 2, 1994, and is a publicly traded limited partnership. AmeriGas Partners conducts a national propane distribution business through its principal operating subsidiaries AmeriGas Propane, L.P. ("AmeriGas OLP") and AmeriGas OLP's subsidiary, AmeriGas Eagle Propane, L.P. ("Eagle OLP"). AmeriGas Partners, AmeriGas OLP and Eagle OLP are Delaware limited partnerships. AmeriGas OLP and Eagle OLP are collectively referred to herein as "the Operating Partnerships," and AmeriGas Partners, the Operating Partnerships and all of their subsidiaries are collectively referred to herein as "the Partnership" or "we." The Operating Partnerships are engaged in the distribution of propane and related equipment and supplies. The Operating Partnerships comprise the largest retail propane distribution business in the United States serving residential, commercial, industrial, motor fuel and agricultural customers from locations in 46 states, including Alaska and Hawaii. At September 30, 2002, AmeriGas Propane, Inc. (the "General Partner"), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of UGI Corporation ("UGI"), held a 1% general partner interest in AmeriGas Partners and a 1.01% general partner interest in AmeriGas OLP. The General Partner and its wholly owned subsidiary Petrolane Incorporated ("Petrolane," a predecessor company of the Partnership) also owned 9,891,072 Subordinated Units and 14,633,932 Common Units of AmeriGas Partners. The remaining 24,907,354 Common Units are publicly held. These Common and Subordinated units represent limited partner interests in AmeriGas Partners. Effective November 18, 2002, the 9,891,072 Subordinated Units held by the General Partner as of September 30, 2002 were converted to Common Units (see Note 17). AmeriGas Partners holds a 99% limited partner interest in AmeriGas OLP. AmeriGas OLP, indirectly through subsidiaries, owns an effective 0.1% general partner interest and a direct approximate 99.8% limited partner interest in Eagle OLP. An unrelated third party (minority partner) holds an approximate 0.1% limited partner interest in Eagle OLP. AmeriGas Partners and the Operating Partnerships have no employees. Employees of the General Partner conduct, direct and manage the activities of AmeriGas Partners and AmeriGas OLP. The General Partner also provides management and administrative services to AmeriGas Eagle Holdings, Inc. ("AEH"), the general partner of Eagle OLP, under a management services agreement. The General Partner is reimbursed monthly for all direct and indirect expenses it incurs on behalf of the Operating Partnerships. NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES CONSOLIDATION PRINCIPLES. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of AmeriGas Partners and its majority-owned subsidiaries. We eliminate all significant intercompany accounts and transactions when we consolidate. We account for the General Partner's 1.01% interest in AmeriGas OLP and the minority partner's 0.1% limited partner interest in Eagle OLP as minority interests in the consolidated financial statements. The Partnership's 50% ownership interest in Atlantic Energy, Inc., a propane storage terminal located in Chesapeake, Virginia, is accounted for by the equity method. USE OF ESTIMATES. We make estimates and assumptions when preparing financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, revenues and expenses, as well as the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ from these estimates. REVENUE RECOGNITION. We recognize revenue from the sale of propane principally as product is delivered to customers. Revenue from the sale of appliances and equipment is recognized at the time of sale or installation. Revenue from repairs and maintenance is recognized upon completion of the service. Effective October 1, 2000, we applied the guidance of Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 101 entitled "Revenue Recognition" ("SAB 101") with respect to annually billed nonrefundable tank fees. Under the new accounting method, revenues from such fees are recorded on a straight-line basis over one year. Prior to the change in accounting, such revenues were recorded when billed. For a detailed description of this change in accounting and its impact on our results, see Note 4. INVENTORIES. Our inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. We determine cost using an average cost method for propane, specific identification for appliances, and the first-in, first-out ("FIFO") method for all other inventories. 14

AmeriGas Partners, L.P. 2002 Annual Report PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT AND RELATED DEPRECIATION. We record property, plant and equipment at cost. The amounts we assign to property, plant and equipment of businesses we acquire are based upon estimated fair value at date of acquisition. We compute depreciation expense on plant and equipment using the straight-line method over estimated service lives generally ranging from 15 to 40 years for buildings and improvements; 7 to 30 years for storage and customer tanks and cylinders; and 2 to 10 years for vehicles, equipment, and office furniture and fixtures. Depreciation expense was $61,993 in 2002, $48,169 in 2001 and $41,452 in 2000. Effective October 1, 2000, we changed our method of accounting for costs to install Partnership-owned tanks at customer locations. Under the new accounting method, all costs to install such tanks, net of amounts billed to customers, are capitalized and amortized over the estimated period of benefit not exceeding ten years. For a detailed description of this change in accounting and its impact on our results, see Note 4. INTANGIBLE ASSETS. The Partnership's intangible assets comprise the following at September 30: 2002 2001 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SUBJECT TO AMORTIZATION: Customer relationships and noncompete agreements $ 31,237 $ 32,234 Accumulated amortization (8,651) (5,364) - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- $ 22,586 $ 26,870 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NOT SUBJECT TO AMORTIZATION: Goodwill $ 496,603 $496,558 Excess reorganization value 93,320 93,320 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- $ 589,923 $589,878 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Effective October 1, 2001, we early adopted the provisions of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 142, "Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets" ("SFAS 142"). SFAS 142 addresses the financial accounting and reporting for acquired goodwill and other intangible assets and supersedes Accounting Principles Board ("APB") Opinion No. 17, "Intangible Assets." SFAS 142 addresses the financial accounting and reporting for intangible assets acquired individually or with a group of other assets (excluding those acquired in a business combination) at acquisition and also addresses the financial accounting and reporting for goodwill and other intangible assets subsequent to their acquisition. Under SFAS 142, an intangible asset is amortized over its useful life unless that life is determined to be indefinite. Goodwill, including excess reorganization value, and other intangible assets with indefinite lives are not amortized but are subject to tests for impairment at least annually. In accordance with the provisions of SFAS 142, the Partnership ceased the amortization of goodwill and excess reorganization value effective October 1, 2001. We amortize customer relationship and noncompete agreement intangibles over their estimated periods of benefit which do not exceed 15 years. Prior to the adoption of SFAS 142, we amortized goodwill resulting from purchase business combinations over 40 years, and excess reorganization value (resulting from Petrolane's July 1993 reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code) on a straight-line basis over 20 years. Amortization expense of intangible assets was $3,287 in 2002. Amortization expense of intangible assets in 2001 and 2000, which includes amortization of goodwill and excess reorganization value prior to the adoption of SFAS 142, was $25,767 and $25,007, respectively. Estimated amortization expense of intangible assets during the next five fiscal years is as follows: Fiscal 2003 - $2,902; Fiscal 2004 - $2,772; Fiscal 2005 - $2,469; Fiscal 2006 - $1,937; Fiscal 2007 - $1,382. The following table provides reconciliations of reported and adjusted net income and diluted net income per limited partner unit as if SFAS 142 had been adopted as of October 1, 2000: Year Ended September 30, ------------------------------------------ 2002 2001 2000 ================================================================================ NET INCOME: Reported income before accounting changes $ 55,366 $ 53,015 $ 15,196 Add back goodwill and excess reorganization value amortization, net of adjustment to minority interests -- 23,570 23,117 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Adjusted income before accounting changes 55,366 76,585 38,313 Cumulative effect of accounting changes -- 12,494 -- - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Adjusted net income $ 55,366 $ 89,079 $ 38,313 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DILUTED INCOME PER LIMITED PARTNER UNIT: Reported income before accounting changes $ 1.12 $ 1.18 $ 0.36 Add back goodwill and excess reorganization value amortization, net of adjustment to minority interests -- 0.53 0.54 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Adjusted income per unit before accounting changes 1.12 1.71 0.90 Cumulative effect of accounting changes -- 0.27 -- - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Adjusted net income per unit $ 1.12 $ 1.98 $ 0.90 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 15

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Thousands of dollars, except per unit amounts) In accordance with the provisions of SFAS 142, we were required to perform a transitional goodwill impairment test by March 31, 2002. In addition, SFAS 142 requires that we perform an impairment test annually or more frequently if events or circumstances indicate that the value of goodwill might be impaired. No impairment to goodwill was recorded as a result of our SFAS 142 transitional impairment test or our annual impairment test completed during the fourth fiscal quarter of 2002. OTHER ASSETS. Included in other assets are net deferred debt issuance costs of $13,673 and $14,811 at September 30, 2002 and 2001, respectively. We are amortizing these costs over the term of the related debt. COMPUTER SOFTWARE COSTS. We include in property, plant and equipment costs associated with computer software we develop or obtain for use in our business. We amortize computer software costs on a straight-line basis over expected periods of benefit not exceeding seven years once the installed software is ready for its intended use. CUSTOMER DEPOSITS. We offer certain of our customers prepayment programs which require customers to pay a fixed periodic amount, or to otherwise prepay a portion of their anticipated propane purchases. Customer prepayments, which exceed associated billings, are classified as customer deposits and advances on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. ENVIRONMENTAL LIABILITIES. We accrue environmental investigation and clean-up costs when it is probable that a liability exists and the amount or range of amounts can be reasonably estimated. Our estimated liability for environmental contamination is reduced to reflect anticipated participation of other responsible parties but is not reduced for possible recovery from insurance carriers. We do not discount to present value the costs of future expenditures for environmental liabilities. INCOME TAXES. AmeriGas Partners and the Operating Partnerships are not directly subject to federal income taxes. Instead, their taxable income or loss is allocated to their individual partners. The Operating Partnerships have corporate subsidiaries which are directly subject to federal income taxes. Accordingly, our Consolidated Financial Statements reflect income taxes related to these corporate subsidiaries. Net income for financial statement purposes may differ significantly from taxable income reportable to unitholders. This is a result of (1) differences between the tax basis and financial reporting basis of assets and liabilities and (2) the taxable income allocation requirements of the Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of AmeriGas Partners, L.P. ("Partnership Agreement") and the Internal Revenue Code. UNIT-BASED COMPENSATION. As permitted by SFAS No. 123, "Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation" ("SFAS 123"), we apply the provisions of APB Opinion No. 25, "Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees" ("APB 25"), in recording compensation expense for grants of equity instruments to employees. Our compensation expense under the provisions of APB 25 for all periods presented was not materially different from amounts determined under the provisions of SFAS 123. For a description of unit-based compensation and related disclosure, see Note 10. NET INCOME PER UNIT. Net income per unit is computed by dividing net income, after deducting the General Partner's 1% interest, by the weighted average number of Common and Subordinated units outstanding. Potentially dilutive Common Units totaling 23,000 in 2002 result principally from Common Unit awards issued under AmeriGas Propane, Inc. incentive compensation plans. There were no potentially dilutive securities in 2001 and 2000. DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS. Effective October 1, 2000, we adopted SFAS No. 133, "Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities" ("SFAS 133"). SFAS 133, as amended, establishes accounting and reporting standards for derivative instruments and for hedging activities. It requires that all derivative instruments be recognized as either assets or liabilities and measured at fair value. The accounting for changes in fair value depends upon the purpose of the derivative instrument and whether it is designated and qualifies for hedge accounting. To the extent a derivative instrument qualifies and is designated as a hedge of the variability of cash flows associated with a forecasted transaction ("cash flow hedge"), the effective portion of the gain or loss on such derivative instrument is generally reported in other comprehensive income and the ineffective portion, if any, is reported in net income. Such amounts reported in other comprehensive income are reclassified into net income when the forecasted transaction affects earnings. If a cash flow hedge is discontinued because it is probable that the forecasted transaction will not occur, the net gain or loss is immediately reclassified into earnings. To the extent derivative instruments qualify and are designated as hedges of changes in the fair value of an existing asset, liability or firm commitment ("fair value hedge"), the gain or loss on the hedging instrument is recognized in earnings along with changes in the fair value of the hedged asset, liability or firm commitment attributable to the hedged risk. 16

AmeriGas Partners, L.P. 2002 Annual Report The adoption of SFAS 133 resulted in a cumulative effect charge to net income of $736 and a cumulative effect increase to accumulated other comprehensive income of $8,921. The increase in accumulated other comprehensive income is attributable to net gains on derivative instruments designated and qualifying as cash flow hedges on October 1, 2000. Prior to the adoption of SFAS 133, gains or losses on derivative instruments associated with forecasted transactions generally were recorded in net income when the forecasted transactions affected earnings. If it became probable that the original forecasted transactions would not occur, we immediately recognized in net income any gains or losses on the derivative instruments. For a detailed description of the derivative instruments we use, our objectives for using them, and related supplemental information required by SFAS 133, see Note 14. CONSOLIDATED STATEMENTS OF CASH FLOWS. We define cash equivalents as all highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less when purchased. We record cash equivalents at cost plus accrued interest, which approximates market value. We paid interest totaling $86,556 in 2002, $79,302 in 2001, and $75,317 in 2000. COMPREHENSIVE INCOME. Comprehensive income comprises net income and other comprehensive income (loss). Our other comprehensive income (loss) principally results from gains and losses on derivative instruments qualifying as cash flow hedges. SEGMENT INFORMATION. We have determined that we have a single reportable operating segment which engages in the distribution of propane and related equipment and supplies. No single customer represents ten percent or more of consolidated revenues. In addition, virtually all of our revenues are derived from sources within the United States and virtually all of our long-lived assets are located in the United States. RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS. The Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") recently issued SFAS No. 143, "Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations" ("SFAS 143"); SFAS No. 144, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets" ("SFAS 144"); SFAS No. 145, "Rescission of FASB Statements No. 4, 44, and 64, Amendment of FASB Statement No. 13, and Technical Corrections" ("SFAS 145"); and SFAS No. 146, "Accounting for Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities" ("SFAS 146"). SFAS 143 addresses financial accounting and reporting for legal obligations associated with the retirement of tangible long-lived assets and the associated asset retirement costs. SFAS 143 requires that the fair value of a liability for an asset retirement obligation be recognized in the period in which it is incurred with a corresponding increase in the carrying value of the related asset. Entities shall subsequently charge the retirement cost to expense using a systematic and rational method over the related asset's useful life and adjust the fair value of the liability resulting from the passage of time through charges to operating expense. We adopted SFAS 143 effective October 1, 2002. The adoption of SFAS 143 did not have a material effect on our financial position or results of operations. SFAS 144 supersedes SFAS No. 121, "Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to be Disposed Of" ("SFAS 121"), and the accounting and reporting provisions of APB Opinion No. 30, "Reporting the Results of Operations - Reporting the Effects of Disposal of a Segment of a Business, and Extraordinary, Unusual and Infrequently Occurring Events and Transactions," as it relates to the disposal of a segment of a business. SFAS 144 establishes a single accounting model for long-lived assets to be disposed of based upon the framework of SFAS 121, and resolves significant implementation issues of SFAS 121. The Partnership adopted SFAS 144 effective October 1, 2002. The adoption of SFAS 144 did not affect our financial position or results of operations. SFAS 145 rescinded SFAS No. 4, "Reporting Gains and Losses from Extinguishment of Debt" (an amendment of APB Opinion No. 30) ("SFAS 4"), effective for fiscal years beginning after May 15, 2002. SFAS 4 had required that material gains and losses on extinguishment of debt be classified as an extraordinary item. Under SFAS 145, it is less likely that a gain or loss on extinguishment of debt would be classified as an extraordinary item in the Consolidated Statement of Income. Among other things, SFAS 145 also amends SFAS No. 13, "Accounting for Leases," to require that certain lease modifications that have economic effects similar to sale-leaseback transactions be accounted for in the same manner as sale-leaseback transactions. The provisions of SFAS 145 relating to leases were effective for transactions occurring after May 15, 2002. The application of SFAS 145 did not affect our financial position or results of operations during 2002. SFAS 146 addresses accounting for costs associated with exit or disposal activities and replaces the guidance in Emerging Issues Task Force ("EITF") No. 94-3, "Liability Recognition for Certain Employee Termination Benefits and Other Costs to Exit an Activity." Generally, SFAS 146 requires that a liability for costs associated with an exit or disposal activity, including contract termination costs, employee termination benefits and other associated costs, be recognized when the liability is incurred. Under EITF No. 94-3, a liability was recognized at the date an entity committed to an exit plan. SFAS 146 will be effective for disposal activities initiated after December 31, 2002. 17

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Thousands of dollars, except per unit amounts) NOTE 3 - ACQUISITIONS On August 21, 2001, AmeriGas Partners, through AmeriGas OLP, acquired the propane distribution businesses of Columbia Energy Group ("Columbia Propane Businesses") in a series of equity and asset purchases pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement dated January 30, 2001, and Amended and Restated August 7, 2001 ("Columbia Purchase Agreement") by and among Columbia Energy Group ("CEG"), Columbia Propane Corporation ("Columbia Propane"), Columbia Propane, L.P. ("CPLP"), CP Holdings, Inc. ("CPH"), AmeriGas Partners, AmeriGas OLP, and the General Partner. The acquired businesses comprised the seventh largest retail marketer of propane in the United States with annual sales of over 300 million gallons from locations in 29 states. The acquired businesses were principally conducted through Columbia Propane and its approximate 99% owned subsidiary, CPLP (referred to after the acquisition as "Eagle OLP"). AmeriGas OLP acquired substantially all of the assets of Columbia Propane, including an indirect 1% general partner interest and an approximate 99% limited partnership interest in Eagle OLP. The purchase price of the Columbia Propane Businesses consisted of $201,750 in cash. In addition, AmeriGas OLP agreed to pay CEG for the amount of working capital, as defined, in excess of $23,000. In April 2002, the Partnership's management and CEG agreed upon the amount of working capital acquired by AmeriGas OLP and AmeriGas OLP made an additional payment for working capital and other adjustments totaling $736. The Columbia Purchase Agreement also provided for the purchase by CEG of limited partnership interests in AmeriGas OLP valued at $50,000 for $50,000 in cash, which interests were exchanged for 2,356,953 Common Units of AmeriGas Partners having an estimated fair value of $54,422. Concurrently with the acquisition, AmeriGas Partners issued $200,000 of 8.875% Senior Notes due May 2011, the net proceeds of which were contributed to AmeriGas OLP to finance the acquisition of the Columbia Propane Businesses, to fund related fees and expenses, and to repay debt outstanding under AmeriGas OLP's Bank Credit Agreement. The operating results of the Columbia Propane Businesses are included in our consolidated results from August 21, 2001. The following table identifies the components of the purchase price: ================================================================================ Cash paid $ 202,486 Cash received from sale of AmeriGas OLP limited partner interests (50,000) Fair value of AmeriGas Partners' Common Units issued in exchange for the AmeriGas OLP limited partner interests 54,422 Transaction costs and expenses 8,140 Involuntary employee termination benefits and relocation costs 2,618 Other liabilities and obligations incurred 1,031 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total $ 218,697 ================================================================================ As of September 30, 2002, substantially all involuntary employee termination benefits and relocation costs had been paid. The purchase price of the Columbia Propane Businesses has been allocated to the assets and liabilities acquired as follows: ================================================================================ Net current assets $ 16,741 Property, plant and equipment 182,761 Customer relationships and noncompete agreement (estimated useful life of 15 and 5 years, respectively) 19,878 Other assets and liabilities (683) - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total $ 218,697 ================================================================================ The following table presents unaudited pro forma income statement and per unit data for 2001 and 2000 as if the acquisition of the Columbia Propane Businesses had occurred as of the beginning of those years: 2001 2000 ================================================================================ Revenues $1,788,567 $ 1,428,147 Income (loss) before accounting changes $ 51,637 $ (53) Net income (loss) $ 64,131 $ (53) Income per limited partner unit - basic and diluted: Income before accounting changes $ 1.10 $ -- Net income $ 1.36 $ -- ================================================================================ The pro forma results of operations reflect the Columbia Propane Businesses' historical operating results after giving effect to adjustments directly attributable to the transaction that are expected to have a continuing impact. They are not adjusted for, among other things, the impact of normal weather conditions, operating synergies and anticipated cost savings. In our opinion, the unaudited pro forma results are not necessarily indicative of the actual results that 18

AmeriGas Partners, L.P. 2002 Annual Report would have occurred had the acquisition of the Columbia Propane Businesses occurred as of the beginning of the years presented or of future operating results under our management. During 2001, in addition to the acquisition of the Columbia Propane Businesses, we acquired several other small propane distribution businesses for $147 in cash and 25,993 Common Units. During 2000, we acquired four retail propane businesses, including the West Coast propane operations of All Star Gas Corporation, for total cash consideration of $55,640. The excess of the purchase price over the fair value of net assets acquired for the 2000 acquisitions was approximately $38,000. In conjunction with these acquisitions, liabilities in the amount of $2,861 were assumed. The pro forma effect of these transactions was not material to the Partnership's results of operations in 2001 and 2000. All of our business acquisitions have been accounted for using the purchase method of accounting. Their results of operations are included in our consolidated results of operations from their respective dates of acquisition. NOTE 4 - CHANGES IN ACCOUNTING TANK FEE REVENUE RECOGNITION. In order to apply the guidance of SAB 101, effective October 1, 2000, we changed our method of accounting for annually billed nonrefundable tank fees. Prior to the change in accounting, nonrefundable tank fees for installed Partnership-owned tanks were recorded as revenue when billed. Under the new accounting method, revenues from such fees are being recorded on a straight-line basis over one year. As a result of this change in accounting, on October 1, 2000, we recorded a charge of $5,984 representing the cumulative effect of the change in accounting on prior years. The change in accounting for nonrefundable tank fees did not have a material impact on reported revenues in 2002 and 2001, and would not have had a material impact on reported revenues in 2000. At September 30, 2002 and 2001, deferred revenues relating to nonrefundable tank fees were $6,755 and $6,153, respectively. ACCOUNTING FOR TANK INSTALLATION COSTS. Effective October 1, 2000, we changed our method of accounting for tank installation costs which are not billed to customers. Prior to the change in accounting, costs to install Partnership-owned tanks at a customer location were expensed as incurred. Under the new accounting method, all such costs, net of amounts billed to customers, are capitalized in property, plant and equipment and amortized over the estimated period of benefit not exceeding ten years. We believe that the new accounting method better matches the costs of installing Partnership-owned tanks with the periods benefited. As a result of this change in accounting, on October 1, 2000, we recorded an increase of $19,214 in net income representing the cumulative effect of the change in accounting on prior years. The change in accounting for tank installation costs did not have a material effect on 2001 net income. CUMULATIVE EFFECT OF ACCOUNTING CHANGES AND PRO FORMA DISCLOSURE. The cumulative effect and related per limited partner unit amounts reflected on the 2001 Consolidated Statement of Income resulting from the above changes in accounting principles, as well as the cumulative effect resulting from the adoption of SFAS 133 (see Note 2), comprise the following: Cumulative Effect Per Cumulative Limited Effect Partner Unit ================================================================================ Tank fees $ (5,984) $ (0.13) Tank installation costs 19,214 0.43 SFAS 133 (736) (0.02) - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total $ 12,494 $ 0.28 ================================================================================ The following table reflects unaudited pro forma net income and income per unit after applying retroactively the changes in accounting for tank installation costs and nonrefundable tank fees: As Reported As Adjusted ================================================================================ Year Ended September 30, 2000: Net income $15,196 $14,989 Net income per unit - basic and diluted $ 0.36 $ 0.35 ================================================================================ NOTE 5 - QUARTERLY DISTRIBUTIONS OF AVAILABLE CASH The Partnership makes distributions to its partners approximately 45 days after the end of each fiscal quarter in a total amount equal to its Available Cash for such quarter. Available Cash generally means: 1. all cash on hand at the end of such quarter, 2. plus all additional cash on hand as of the date of determination resulting from borrowings after the end of such quarter, 3. less the amount of cash reserves established by the General Partner in its reasonable discretion. The General Partner may establish reserves for the proper conduct of the Partnership's business and for distributions during the next four quarters. In addition, certain of the Partnership's debt agreements require reserves be established for the payment of debt principal and interest. Distributions of Available Cash have generally been made 98% to Common and Subordinated unitholders and 2% to the General Partner. The Partnership may pay an incentive distribution if Available Cash exceeds the Minimum Quarterly Distribution of $0.55 ("MQD") on all units. If there was sufficient Available Cash, holders of Common Units had the right to receive the MQD, plus any arrearages, before the distribution of Available Cash to holders of Subordinated Units. Common Units will not accrue arrearages for any quarter after all the remaining Subordinated Units have been converted to Common Units pursuant to the terms of the Partnership Agreement. Effective November 18, 2002, the remaining Subordinated Units held by the General Partner as of September 30, 2002 were converted to Common Units (see Note 17). 19

AMERIGAS PARTNERS SENIOR NOTES. The 8.875% Senior Notes generally cannot be redeemed at our option prior to May 20, 2006. A redemption premium applies thereafter through May 19, 2009. However, prior to May 20, 2004, AmeriGas Partners may use the proceeds of a public offering of Common Units to redeem up to 33% of the 8.875% Senior Notes at 108.875% plus accrued and unpaid interest. The 10% Senior Notes generally cannot be redeemed at our option prior to their maturity. The 10.125% Senior Notes are redeemable prior to their maturity date. A redemption premium applies until April 15, 2004. In November 2001, AmeriGas Partners prepaid $15,000 of 10.125% Senior Notes at a redemption price of 103.375%. AmeriGas Partners may, under certain circumstances following the disposition of assets or a change of control, be required to offer to prepay the Senior Notes. AMERIGAS OLP FIRST MORTGAGE NOTES. AmeriGas OLP's First Mortgage Notes are collateralized by substantially all of its assets. The General Partner and Petrolane are co-obligors of the Series A, B, and C First Mortgage Notes, and the General Partner is co-obligor of the Series D and E First Mortgage Notes. AmeriGas OLP may prepay the First Mortgage Notes, in whole or in part. These prepayments include a make whole premium. Following the disposition of assets or a change of control, AmeriGas OLP may be required to offer to prepay the First Mortgage Notes, in whole or in part. AMERIGAS OLP BANK CREDIT AGREEMENT. AmeriGas OLP's Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement ("Bank Credit Agreement") consists of (1) a Revolving Credit Facility and (2) an Acquisition Facility. AmeriGas OLP's obligations under the Bank Credit Agreement are collateralized by substantially all of its assets. The General Partner and Petrolane are co-obligors of amounts outstanding under the Bank Credit Agreement. Under the Revolving Credit Facility, AmeriGas OLP may borrow up to $100,000 (including a $35,000 sublimit for letters of credit) subject to restrictions in the AmeriGas Partners Senior Notes indentures (see "Restrictive Covenants" below). The Revolving Credit Facility may be used for working capital and general purposes of AmeriGas OLP. The Revolving Credit Facility expires October 1, 2003, but may be extended for additional one-year periods with the consent of the participating banks representing at least 80% of the commitments thereunder. AmeriGas OLP had borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility totaling $10,000 at September 30, 2002, which we classify as bank loans. There were no borrowings outstanding under the Revolving Credit Facility at September 30, 2001. Issued and outstanding letters of credit, which reduce available borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility, totaled $19,781 at September 30, 2002 and $9,500 at September 30, 2001. 20

AmeriGas Partners, L.P. 2002 Annual Report The Acquisition Facility provides AmeriGas OLP with the ability to borrow up to $75,000 to finance the purchase of propane businesses or propane business assets. In addition, up to $30,000 of the Acquisition Facility may be used for working capital purposes. The Acquisition Facility operates as a revolving facility through October 1, 2003, at which time amounts then outstanding will be immediately due and payable. The Revolving Credit Facility and the Acquisition Facility permit AmeriGas OLP to borrow at prevailing interest rates, including the base rate, defined as the higher of the Federal Funds rate plus 0.50% or the agent bank's prime rate (4.75% at September 30, 2002), or at two-week, one-, two-, three-, or six-month Eurodollar Rate, as defined in the Bank Credit Agreement, plus a margin. The margin on Eurodollar Rate borrowings (which ranges from 1.00% to 2.25%), and the Bank Credit Agreement commitment fee rate (which ranges from 0.25% to 0.50%) are dependent upon AmeriGas OLP's ratio of funded debt to earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), each as defined in the Bank Credit Agreement. The weighted-average interest rate on Revolving Credit Facility borrowings at September 30, 2002 was 4.75%. There were no borrowings outstanding under the Acquisition Facility at September 30, 2002. The weighted-average interest rate on Acquisition Facility loans outstanding at September 30, 2001 was 4.08%. AmeriGas OLP had the ability to borrow an additional $67,658 under the Acquisition Facility based upon eligible propane business and asset expenditures made through September 30, 2002. GENERAL PARTNER FACILITY. AmeriGas OLP also has a Revolving Credit Agreement with the General Partner under which it may borrow up to $20,000 for working capital and general purposes. This agreement is coterminous with, and generally comparable to, AmeriGas OLP's Revolving Credit Facility except that borrowings under the General Partner Facility are unsecured and subordinated to all senior debt of AmeriGas OLP. Interest rates on borrowings are based upon one-month offshore interbank offering rates. Commitment fees are determined in the same manner as fees under the Revolving Credit Facility. UGI has agreed to contribute up to $20,000 to the General Partner to fund such borrowings. RESTRICTIVE COVENANTS. The Senior Notes of AmeriGas Partners restrict the ability of the Partnership to, among other things, incur additional indebtedness, make investments, incur liens, issue preferred interests, prepay subordinated indebtedness, and effect mergers, consolidations and sales of assets. Under the Senior Notes indentures, AmeriGas Partners is generally permitted to make cash distributions equal to available cash, as defined, as of the end of the immediately preceding quarter, if certain conditions are met. These conditions include: 1. no event of default exists or would exist upon making such distributions and 2. the Partnership's consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio, as defined, is greater than 1.75-to-1. If the ratio in item 2 above is less than or equal to 1.75-to-1, the Partnership may make cash distributions in a total amount not to exceed $24,000 less the total amount of distributions made during the immediately preceding 16 fiscal quarters. At September 30, 2002, such ratio was 2.41-to-1. The Bank Credit Agreement and the First Mortgage Notes restrict the incurrence of additional indebtedness and also restrict certain liens, guarantees, investments, loans and advances, payments, mergers, consolidations, asset transfers, transactions with affiliates, sales of assets, acquisitions and other transactions. The Bank Credit Agreement and First Mortgage Notes require the ratio of total indebtedness, as defined, to EBITDA, as defined (calculated on a rolling four-quarter basis or eight-quarter basis divided by two), to be less than or equal to 4.75-to-1 with respect to the Bank Credit Agreement and 5.25-to-1 with respect to the First Mortgage Notes. In addition, the Bank Credit Agreement requires that AmeriGas OLP maintain a ratio of EBITDA to interest expense, as defined, of at least 2.25-to-1 on a rolling four-quarter basis. Generally, as long as no default exists or would result, AmeriGas OLP is permitted to make cash distributions not more frequently than quarterly in an amount not to exceed available cash, as defined, for the immediately preceding calendar quarter. At September 30, 2002, the Partnership was in compliance with its financial covenants. NOTE 7 - EMPLOYEE RETIREMENT PLANS The General Partner sponsors a 401(k) savings plan for eligible employees. Participants in the savings plan may contribute a portion of their compensation on a before-tax basis. Generally, employee contributions are matched on a dollar-for-dollar (100%) basis up to 5% of eligible compensation. In conjunction with a short-term cost savings program, for the period March 1, 2002 to September 30, 2002, employee contributions were matched at a rate of 25% up to 5% of eligible compensation. The cost of benefits under our savings plan was $2,904 in 2002, $4,765 in 2001 and $4,741 in 2000. NOTE 8 - INVENTORIES Inventories comprise the following at September 30: 2002 2001 ================================================================================ Propane gas $38,283 $52,527 Materials, supplies and other 18,586 13,960 Appliances for sale 5,627 6,585 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total inventories $62,496 $73,072 ================================================================================ In addition to inventories on hand, we also enter into contracts to purchase propane to meet a portion of our supply requirements. Generally, these contracts are one- or two-year agreements subject to annual review and call for payment based on either fixed prices or market prices at date of delivery. 21

In December 2001 and January 2002, AmeriGas Partners sold an aggregate 2,428,047 Common Units in conjunction with an underwritten public offering at a public offering price of $21.50 per unit. The net proceeds of the public offering and the associated capital contributions from the General Partner totaling $50,635 were contributed to AmeriGas OLP and used to reduce Bank Credit Agreement borrowings and for working capital. In October 2001, AmeriGas Partners closed the sale of 350,000 Common Units to the General Partner at the trade-date market price of $19.81 per unit. The proceeds of this sale and the associated capital contributions from the General Partner totaling $7,075 were contributed to AmeriGas OLP which used the proceeds to reduce Bank Credit Agreement borrowings and for working capital. In October 2000, we sold 2,300,000 Common Units in conjunction with a public offering at a public offering price of $18.44 per unit. The net proceeds from the Common Unit offering and the associated capital contributions from the General Partner totaling $40,649 were used to reduce Bank Credit Agreement indebtedness and for working capital purposes. Under the AmeriGas Propane, Inc. 2000 Long-Term Incentive Plan ("2000 Incentive Plan"), the General Partner may grant to key employees the rights to receive a total of 500,000 Common Units, or cash equivalent to the fair market value of such Common Units, upon the achievement of performance goals. In addition, the 2000 Incentive Plan may provide for the crediting of Partnership distribution equivalents to participants' accounts. Distribution equivalents will be paid in cash and such payment may, at the participant's request, be deferred. The actual number of Common Units (or their cash equivalents) ultimately issued, and the actual amount of distribution equivalents paid, is dependent upon the achievement of performance goals. Generally, each grant, unless paid, will terminate when the participant ceases to be employed by the General Partner. We also have a nonexecutive Common Unit plan under which the General Partner may grant awards of up to a total of 200,000 Common Units to key employees who do not participate in the 2000 Incentive Plan. Generally, awards under the nonexecutive plan vest at the end of a three-year period and will be paid in Common Units and cash. During 2002 and 2001, the General Partner made awards under the 2000 Incentive Plan and the nonexecutive plan representing 43,250 and 66,075 Common Units, respectively. We recorded compensation expense of $1,018 in 2002 and $497 in 2001 relating to these plans. At September 30, 2002 and 2001, awards representing 105,825 and 65,325 Common Units, respectively, were outstanding. NOTE 11 - COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES We lease various buildings and transportation, computer and office equipment under operating leases. Certain of the leases contain renewal and purchase options and also contain escalation clauses. Our aggregate rental expense for such leases was $41,974 in 2002, $32,709 in 2001 and $28,990 in 2000. Minimum future payments under noncancelable operating leases are as follows: ================================================================================ Year Ending September 30, 2003 $ 36,475 2004 30,893 2005 26,859 2006 22,323 2007 18,235 Thereafter 41,768 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total minimum operating lease payments $176,553 ================================================================================ The Partnership has succeeded to certain lease guarantee obligations of Petrolane relating to Petrolane's divestiture of nonpropane operations before its 1989 acquisition by QFB Partners. Future lease payments under these leases total approximately $20,000 at September 30, 2002. The leases expire through 2010 and some of them are currently in default. The Partnership has succeeded to the indemnity agreement of Petrolane by which Texas Eastern Corporation ("Texas Eastern"), a prior owner of Petrolane, agreed to indemnify Petrolane against any liabilities arising out of the conduct of businesses that do not relate to, and are not a part of, the propane business, including lease guarantees. In December 1999, Texas Eastern filed for dissolution under the Delaware General Corporation Law. In May 2001, Petrolane filed a declaratory judgment action in the Delaware Chancery Court seeking confirmation of 22

AmeriGas Partners, L.P. 2002 Annual Report Texas Eastern's indemnification obligations and judicial supervision of Texas Eastern's dissolution to ensure that its indemnification obligations to Petrolane are paid or adequately provided for in accordance with law. Those proceedings are pending. In a Liquidation and Winding Up Agreement dated September 17, 2002, PanEnergy Corporation ("PanEnergy"), Texas Eastern's sole stockholder, agreed to assume all of Texas Eastern's liabilities as of December 20, 2002, to the extent of the value of Texas Eastern's assets transferred to PanEnergy as of that date (which is expected to exceed $94 million), and to the extent that such liabilities arise within ten years from Texas Eastern's date of dissolution. Notwithstanding the dissolution proceeding, and based on Texas Eastern previously having satisfied directly defaulted lease obligations without the Partnership's having to honor its guarantee, we believe that the probability that the Partnership will be required to directly satisfy the lease obligations subject to the indemnification agreement is remote. Columbia Propane, CPLP, and CPH (collectively, the "Company Parties") agreed to indemnify the former general partners of National Propane Partners, L.P. and certain of their affiliates (collectively, "National General Partners") against certain income tax and other losses that the National General Partners may sustain as a result of the 1999 acquisition by CPLP of the National Propane business (the "1999 Acquisition") or its operation of the business after the 1999 Acquisition. CEG has agreed to indemnify AmeriGas Partners, AmeriGas OLP, the General Partner (collectively, the "Buyer Parties") and the Company Parties against any losses that they sustain under the 1999 Acquisition Agreement and related agreements ("Losses"), including claims asserted by the National General Partners ("National Claims"), to the extent such claims are based on acts or omissions of CEG or the Company Parties prior to the acquisition of the Columbia Propane Businesses by AmeriGas OLP on August 21, 2001 (the "2001 Acquisition"). The Buyer Parties have agreed to indemnify CEG against Losses, including National Claims, to the extent such claims are based on acts or omissions of the Buyer Parties or the Company Parties after the 2001 Acquisition. The Seller and Buyer Parties have agreed to apportion certain losses resulting from a National Claim to the extent such losses result from the 2001 Acquisition itself. We also have other contingent liabilities, pending claims and legal actions arising in the normal course of our business. We cannot predict with certainty the final results of these matters. However, it is reasonably possible that some of them could be resolved unfavorably to us. Management believes, after consultation with counsel, that damages or settlements, if any, recovered by the plaintiffs in such claims or actions will not have a material adverse effect on our financial position but could be material to our operating results or cash flows in future periods depending on the nature and timing of future developments with respect to these matters and the amounts of future operating results and cash flows. NOTE 12 - RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS Pursuant to the Partnership Agreement and a Management Services Agreement among AEH, the general partner of Eagle OLP, and the General Partner, the General Partner is entitled to reimbursement for all direct and indirect expenses incurred or payments it makes on behalf of the Partnership. These costs, which totaled $262,398 in 2002, $208,910 in 2001 and $192,910 in 2000, include employee compensation and benefit expenses of employees of the General Partner and general and administrative expenses. UGI provides certain financial and administrative services to the General Partner. UGI bills the General Partner for these direct and indirect corporate expenses and the General Partner is reimbursed by the Partnership for these expenses. Such corporate expenses totaled $6,341 in 2002, $5,276 in 2001 and $3,985 in 2000. In addition, UGI and certain of its subsidiaries provide office space and automobile liability insurance to the Partnership. These expenses totaled $1,502 in 2002, $1,348 in 2001 and $1,155 in 2000. Subsequent to the Columbia Propane acquisition, the Partnership purchases propane on behalf of Atlantic Energy. Atlantic Energy reimburses AmeriGas OLP for its purchases plus interest as Atlantic Energy sells such propane to third parties or to the Partnership itself. The total dollar value of propane purchased on behalf of Atlantic Energy was $11,370 and $1,875 in 2002 and 2001, respectively. Purchases of propane by AmeriGas OLP from Atlantic Energy during 2002 and 2001 totaled $12,131 and $1,132, respectively. AmeriGas OLP also provides other services to Atlantic Energy including accounting, insurance and other administrative services and is reimbursed for the related costs. Such costs were not material during 2002 or 2001. In addition, AmeriGas OLP enters into product cost hedging contracts on behalf of Atlantic Energy. When these contracts are settled, AmeriGas OLP is reimbursed the cost of any losses, or distributes the proceeds of any gains, to Atlantic Energy. Amounts due from Atlantic Energy at September 30, 2002 and 2001 totaled $5,243 and $2,867, respectively, which amounts are included in accounts receivable - related parties in the Consolidated Balance Sheets. 23

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Thousands of dollars, except per unit amounts) NOTE 13 - OTHER CURRENT LIABILITIES Other current liabilities comprise the following at September 30: 2002 2001 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Self-insured property and casualty liability $11,658 $ 8,516 Taxes other than income taxes 5,344 6,922 Fair value of derivative instruments 3,330 12,958 Propane exchange liability 4,627 8,131 Deferred tank fee revenue 6,755 6,153 Other 8,759 9,289 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total other current liabilities $40,473 $51,969 ================================================================================ NOTE 14 - FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS In accordance with its propane price risk management policy, the Partnership uses derivative instruments, including price swap and option contracts and contracts for the forward sale of propane, to manage the cost of a portion of its forecasted purchases of propane and to manage market risk associated with propane storage inventories. These derivative instruments have been designated by the Partnership as cash flow or fair value hedges under SFAS 133. The fair values of these derivative instruments are affected by changes in propane product prices. In addition to these derivative instruments, the Partnership may also enter into contracts for the forward purchase of propane as well as fixed price supply agreements to manage propane market price risk. These contracts generally qualify for the normal purchases and normal sales exception of SFAS 133 and therefore are not adjusted to fair value. We use fixed-rate long-term debt as a source of capital. When these long-term debt issues mature, we often refinance them with fixed-rate debt bearing then-existing market interest rates. On occasion, we enter into interest rate protection agreements ("IRPAs") to reduce market interest rate risk associated with these forecasted debt issuances. We designate these IRPAs as cash flow hedges. Gains or losses on IRPAs are included in other comprehensive income and are reclassified to interest expense as the interest expense on the associated debt issue affects earnings. During the years ended September 30, 2002 and 2001, the net loss recognized in earnings representing cash flow hedge ineffectiveness was $2,123 and $326, respectively. Gains and losses included in accumulated other comprehensive income at September 30, 2002 relating to cash flow hedges will be reclassified into (1) cost of sales when the forecasted purchase of propane subject to the hedges impacts net income and (2) interest expense when interest on anticipated issuances of fixed-rate long-term debt is reflected in net income. Included in accumulated other comprehensive income at September 30, 2002 are net losses of approximately $3,014 from IRPAs associated with forecasted issuances of ten-year debt generally anticipated to occur during the next two years. The amount of net loss which is expected to be reclassified into net income during the next twelve months is not material. The remaining net gain on derivative instruments included in accumulated other comprehensive income at September 30, 2002 of $9,660 is principally associated with future purchases of propane generally anticipated to occur during the next twelve months. The actual amount of gains or losses on unsettled derivative instruments that ultimately is reclassified into net income will depend upon the value of such derivative contracts when settled. The fair value of derivative instruments is included in other current assets, other current liabilities and other noncurrent liabilities in the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The carrying amounts of financial instruments included in current assets and current liabilities (excluding unsettled derivative instruments and current maturities of long-term debt) approximate their fair values because of their short-term nature. The carrying amounts and estimated fair values of our remaining financial instruments (including unsettled derivative instruments) at September 30 are as follows: Carrying Estimated Amount Fair Value ================================================================================ 2002: Propane swap and option contracts $ 9,771 $ 9,771 Interest rate protection agreements (2,758) (2,758) Long-term debt 945,784 982,869 2001: Propane swap, option and forward sales contracts $ (10,529) $ (10,529) Interest rate protection agreements (3,029) (3,029) Long-term debt 1,005,904 1,081,698 ================================================================================ We estimate the fair value of long-term debt by using current market prices and by discounting future cash flows using rates available for similar type debt. Fair values of derivative instruments reflect the estimated amounts that we would receive or (pay) to terminate the contracts at the reporting date based upon quoted market prices of comparable contracts. We have financial instruments such as short-term investments and trade accounts receivable which could expose us to concentrations of credit risk. We limit our credit risk from short-term investments by investing only in investment-grade commercial paper and U.S. Government securities. The credit risk from trade accounts receivable is limited because we have a large customer base which extends across many different U.S. markets. We attempt to minimize our credit risk associated with our derivative financial instruments through the application of credit policies. NOTE 15 - OTHER INCOME, NET Other income, net, comprises the following: 2002 2001 2000 ================================================================================ Gain on sales of fixed assets $(1,719) $(2,413) $(3,577) Finance charges (2,169) (2,435) (1,889) Derivative loss 2,123 326 - Other (1,598) (1,632) (3,067) - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total other income, net $(3,363) $(6,154) $(8,533) ================================================================================ 24

AmeriGas Partners, L.P. 2002 Annual Report GENERAL PARTNER'S REPORT The Partnership's consolidated financial statements and other financial information contained in this Annual Report are prepared by the management of the General Partner, AmeriGas Propane, Inc., which is responsible for their fairness, integrity and objectivity. The consolidated financial statements and related information were prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and include amounts that are based on management's best judgments and estimates. The General Partner maintains a system of internal controls. Management of the General Partner believes the system provides reasonable, but not absolute, assurance that assets are safeguarded and that transactions are executed in accordance with management's authorization and are properly recorded to permit the preparation of reliable financial information. There are limits in all systems of internal control, based on the recognition that the cost of the system should not exceed the benefits to be derived. We believe that the internal control system is cost effective and provides reasonable assurance that material errors or irregularities will be prevented or detected within a timely period. The internal control system and compliance therewith are monitored by UGI Corporation's internal audit staff. The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the General Partner is composed of three members, none of whom is an employee of the General Partner. This Committee is responsible for overseeing the financial reporting process and the adequacy of controls, and for monitoring the independence of the Partnership's independent accountants and the performance of the independent accountants and internal audit staff. The Committee recommends to the Board of Directors the engagement of the independent accountants to conduct the annual audit of the Partnership's consolidated financial statements. The Committee is also responsible for maintaining direct channels of communication between the Board of Directors and both the independent accountants and internal auditors. The independent accountants, who are appointed by the Board of Directors of the General Partner, perform certain procedures, including an evaluation of internal controls to the extent required by auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America, in order to express an opinion on the consolidated financial statements and to obtain reasonable assurance that such financial statements are free of material misstatement. /s/ Eugene V.
