Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Indenture with respect to 3.875% Senior Notes due 2029

On February 2, 2021, ZoomInfo Technologies LLC (the “Issuer”) and ZoomInfo Finance Corp. (together with the Issuer, the “Issuers”), indirect subsidiaries of ZoomInfo Technologies Inc. (the “Company”), issued and sold $350.0 million aggregate principal amount of their 3.875% Senior Notes due 2029 (the “Notes”), which mature on February 1, 2029, pursuant to an indenture, dated as of February 2, 2021 (the “Indenture”), by and among the Issuers, the guarantors named on the signature pages thereto (the “Guarantors”) and Wells Fargo, National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”). The Notes were sold within the United States only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act.

The Notes were issued at 100.0% of their par value. The Notes bear interest at a rate of 3.875% per year, payable semi-annually in arrears. The Issuers’ obligations under the Notes are guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by all of ZoomInfo LLC’s (the “Borrower”) existing and future wholly-owned domestic restricted subsidiaries (other than the Issuers) that guarantee its senior secured credit facility or certain other indebtedness. The Notes are not guaranteed by the Company.

The net proceeds from the Notes were used, together with cash on hand, to repay a portion of the outstanding indebtedness under the Borrower’s first lien term loan facility and to pay related fees and expenses.

The Issuers may redeem all or a part of the Notes at any time prior to February 1, 2024 at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed plus a make-whole premium and accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but not including, the redemption date. In addition, beginning on February 1, 2024, the Issuers may redeem all or a part of the Notes at a redemption price equal to 101.938% of the principal amount redeemed. The redemption price decreases to 100.969% and 100.000% of the principal amount redeemed on February 1, 2025 and February 1, 2026, respectively. In addition, at any time prior to February 1, 2024, the Issuers may redeem up to 40% of the Notes from the proceeds of certain equity offerings at a redemption price equal to 103.875% of the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest.

Upon the occurrence of certain change of control events, the holders of the Notes will have the right to require the Issuers to make an offer to repurchase each holder’s Notes at a price equal to 101% of their principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest.

The Notes contain covenants limiting, among other things, the Issuers and the Guarantors’ ability to create liens on certain assets to secure debt, enter into sale and lease-back transactions, consolidate, merge, sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of our assets and designate subsidiaries as unrestricted subsidiaries. These covenants are subject to a number of important exceptions and qualifications. The Notes also contain customary events of default, the occurrence of which could result in the principal of and accrued interest on the Notes to become or be declared due and payable.

Each of the foregoing descriptions of each of the Indenture and the Notes do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of each of such documents, which are filed as Exhibits 4.1 and 4.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.

First Lien Credit Agreement Amendment

On February 2, 2021, the Borrower entered into an amendment (the “Credit Agreement Amendment”) to the Borrower’s existing first lien credit agreement (as amended, the “First Lien Credit Agreement”), by and among the Borrower, the Issuer, as co-borrower (the “Co-Borrower”), ZoomInfo Midco LLC, Morgan Stanley Bank, N.A., as the new term loan lender, the revolving credit lenders party thereto, and Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc., as administrative agent, collateral agent and L/C issuer, pursuant to which, among other things, there will be (i) an





increase in the aggregate commitments to $250.0 million under the revolving credit facility, (ii) the addition of the Issuer as Co-Borrower, (iii) the repricing of the first lien term loan facility and revolving credit facility and (iv) an extension of the maturity date of the revolving credit facility to November 2, 2025.

Amounts drawn under the first lien term loan facility will bear interest, at the Borrower’s option, at a percentage per annum equal to 3.00% per annum for Eurocurrency Rate Loans or 2.00% per annum for Base Rate Loans. Amounts drawn under the revolving credit facility will bear interest, at the Borrower’s option, with respect to the first full fiscal quarter ending after February 2, 2021, 2.25% per annum for Eurocurrency Rate Loans or 1.25% per annum for Base Rate Loans. Thereafter, the applicable percentage per annum is set forth below, as determined by reference to the consolidated first lien net leverage ratio:

Applicable Rate
Pricing LevelConsolidated First Lien Net Leverage RatioEurocurrency Rate LoansBase Rate Loans
1Greater than 4.40:1.002.25%1.25%
2Equal to or less than 4.40:1.002.00%1.00%

The foregoing description of the Credit Agreement Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the document, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.


Item 2.03          Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

The information set forth in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference in this Item 2.03.

Item 8.01          Other Events.

On January 28, 2021, the Company issued a press release announcing that the Issuers priced the previously announced offering (the “Offering”) of $350.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the Notes, which represented an increase of $50.0 million from the previously announced offering of $300.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the Notes. The full text of the press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

On February 2, 2021, the Issuers completed the Offering. As contemplated, the Company, the Issuers and the Borrower, an indirect subsidiary of the Company, used all of the net proceeds, along with cash on hand, to prepay $365.4 million aggregate principal amount of the first lien term loans outstanding under the First Lien Credit Agreement (the “Debt Prepayment”). Following the Debt Prepayment, as of February 2, 2021, $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of first lien term loans were outstanding under the First Lien Credit Agreement.

This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the securities described above, and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

The Trustee shall authenticate Initial Notes for original issue on the Issue Date in an aggregate principal amount of $350,000,000 and additional Notes of the same series as the Initial Notes (“Additional Notes”) for original issue after the Issue Date (such Notes to be substantially in the form of Exhibit A hereto) in an unlimited amount, in each case upon written order of each of the Issuers signed by an Officer of each of the Issuers (an “Authentication Order”). In addition, each such Authentication Order shall specify the amount of Notes to be authenticated, the date on which the Notes are to be authenticated, whether the securities are to be Initial Notes or Additional Notes and the aggregate principal amount of Notes outstanding on the date of authentication, and shall further specify the amount of such Notes to be issued as Global Notes or Definitive Notes.

While any such Default continues, the Trustee may require a Paying Agent to pay all money held by it to the Trustee. The Issuers at any time may require a Paying Agent to pay all money held by such Paying Agent to the Trustee. Upon payment over to the Trustee, the Paying Agent (if other than either of the Issuers) shall have no further liability for the money delivered to the Trustee. If either of the Issuers acts as Paying Agent, it shall segregate and hold in a separate trust fund for the benefit of the Holders all money held by it as Paying Agent.

Any interest on any Note which is payable, but is not paid when the same becomes due and payable and such nonpayment continues for a period of 30 days shall forthwith cease to be payable to the Holder on the regular Record Date by virtue of having been such Holder, and such defaulted interest and (to the extent lawful) interest on such defaulted interest at the rate borne by the Notes (such defaulted interest and interest thereon herein collectively called “Defaulted Interest”), shall be paid by the Issuers, at their election in each case, as provided in clause (a) or (b) below:
(a)    The Issuers may elect to make payment of any Defaulted Interest to the Persons in whose names the Notes (or their respective predecessor Notes) are registered at the close of business on a Special Record Date (as defined below) for the payment of such Defaulted Interest, which shall be fixed in the following manner. The Issuers shall notify the Trustee in writing of the amount of Defaulted Interest proposed to be paid on each Note and the date of the proposed payment (the “Special Interest Payment Date”), and at the same time the Issuers shall deposit with the Trustee an amount of money equal to the aggregate amount proposed to be paid in respect of such Defaulted Interest or shall make arrangements for such deposit prior to the date of the proposed payment, such money when deposited to be held in trust for the benefit of the Persons entitled to such Defaulted Interest as in this clause provided. Thereupon the Issuers shall fix a record date (the “Special Record Date”) for the payment of such Defaulted Interest, which shall be not more than 15 days and not less than 10 days prior to the Special Interest Payment Date and not less than 10 days after the receipt by the Trustee of the notice of the proposed payment. The Issuers shall promptly notify the Trustee of such Special Record Date and shall, or at the written request to the Trustee and in the name and expense of the Issuers, the Trustee shall, cause notice of the proposed payment of such Defaulted Interest and the Special Record Date and Special Interest Payment Date therefor to be given in the manner provided for in Section 12.1, not less than 10 days prior to such Special Record Date. Notice of the proposed payment of such Defaulted Interest and the Special Record Date and Special Interest Payment Date therefor having been so given, such Defaulted Interest shall be paid on the Special Interest Payment Date to the Persons in whose names the Notes (or their respective predecessor Notes) are registered at the close of business on such Special Record Date and shall no longer be payable pursuant to the following clause (b).
-52-


(b)    The Issuers may make payment of any Defaulted Interest in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange on which the Notes may be listed, and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange, if, after notice given by the Issuers to the Trustee of the proposed payment pursuant to this clause (b), such manner of payment shall be deemed practicable by the Trustee.
Subject to the foregoing provisions of this Section, each Note delivered under this Indenture upon registration of transfer of or in exchange for or in lieu of any other Note shall carry the rights to interest accrued and unpaid, and to accrue, which were carried by such other Note.
SECTION 2.13CUSIP and ISIN Numbers

The Issuers shall promptly notify the Trustee in writing of any change in the CUSIP or ISIN numbers.

(1)    if the rescission would not conflict with any judgment or decree;
(2)    if all existing Events of Default have been cured or waived except nonpayment of principal or interest that has become due solely because of the acceleration;
(3)    to the extent the payment of such interest is lawful, interest on overdue installments of interest and overdue principal, which has become due otherwise than by such declaration of acceleration, has been paid;
(4)    if the Issuers have paid the Trustee its reasonable compensation and reimbursed the Trustee for its costs, expenses, disbursements and advances; and
(5)    in the event of the cure or waiver of an Event of Default of the type described in Section 6.1(v) or (vi), the Trustee shall have received an Officers’ Certificate and an Opinion of Counsel that such Event of Default has been cured or waived.
No such rescission shall affect any subsequent Default or impair any right consequent thereto.
SECTION 6.3Other Remedies. If an Event of Default occurs and is continuing, the Trustee may pursue any available remedy to collect the payment of principal of or interest on the Notes or to enforce the performance of any provision of the Notes, this Indenture (including sums owed to the Trustee and its agents and counsel) and the Guarantees.
The Trustee may maintain a proceeding even if it does not possess any of the Notes or does not produce any of them in the proceeding. A delay or omission by the Trustee or any Holder in exercising any right or remedy accruing upon an Event of Default shall not impair the right or remedy or constitute a waiver of or acquiescence in the Event of Default. No remedy is exclusive of any other remedy. All available remedies are cumulative.
SECTION 6.4Waiver of Past Defaults. The Required Holders by written notice to the Trustee and the Issuers may, on behalf of the Holders of all of the Notes, waive, rescind or cancel any declaration of an existing or past Default or Event of Default and its consequences under this Indenture if such waiver, rescission or cancellation would not conflict with any judgment or decree, except a continuing Default or Event of Default in the payment of interest or premium on, or the principal of, the Notes (other than such nonpayment of principal or interest that has become due as a result of such acceleration). Upon any such waiver, such Default shall cease to exist, and any Event of Default arising therefrom shall be deemed to have been cured for every purpose of this Indenture; but no such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other Default or impair any right consequent thereon.
In the event of any Event of Default specified in Section 6.1(iv), such Event of Default and all consequences thereof (excluding, however, any resulting payment default) will be annulled, waived and rescinded, automatically and without any action by the Trustee or the Holders of the Notes, if within 30 days after such Event of Default arose the Issuers deliver an Officers’ Certificate to the Trustee stating that (x) the Indebtedness or guarantee that is the basis for such Event of Default has been discharged, (y) the requisite amount of holders of such Indebtedness have rescinded or waived the acceleration, notice or action (as the case may be) giving rise to such Event of Default or (z) the default that is the basis for such
-72-


Event of Default has been cured, it being understood that in no event shall an acceleration of the principal amount of the Notes as described above be annulled, waived or rescinded upon the happening of any such events.
SECTION 6.5Control by Majority. The Required Holders may direct the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the Trustee or of exercising any trust or power conferred on the Trustee with respect to such series. The Trustee, however, may refuse to follow any direction that conflicts with law or this Indenture or that the Trustee determines is unduly prejudicial to the rights of any other Holder or that would involve the Trustee in personal liability (it being understood that the Trustee does not have an affirmative duty to determine whether any such action is prejudicial to any Holder) unless such Holders have offered, and if requested, provided, to the Trustee security and indemnity satisfactory to the Trustee against any loss, liability, cost or expense. Prior to taking any action under this Indenture, the Trustee shall be entitled to security or indemnification satisfactory to it in its sole discretion against all losses, liabilities, cost and expenses that may be caused by taking or not taking such action.
SECTION 6.6Limitation on Suits. In case an Event of Default occurs with respect to the Notes and is continuing, the Trustee shall be under no obligation to exercise any of the rights or powers under this Indenture at the request or direction of any of the Holders of the Notes unless such Holders have offered, and if requested, provided, to the Trustee indemnity or security satisfactory to the Trustee against any loss, liability, cost or expense. Except to enforce the right to receive payment of principal, premium (if any) or interest when due, no Holder of the Notes may pursue any remedy with respect to this Indenture or the Notes unless:
(i)such Holder has previously given the Trustee written notice that an Event of Default is continuing;
(ii)Holders of at least 30% of the aggregate principal amount of the then-outstanding Notes have requested in writing the Trustee to pursue the remedy;
(iii)such Holders have offered, and if requested, provided, the Trustee security or indemnity reasonably satisfactory to it in respect of any loss, liability, cost or expense;
(iv)the Trustee has not complied with such request within 60 days after the receipt of the request and the offer of security or indemnity; and
(v)the Required Holders have not given the Trustee a written direction inconsistent with such request within such 60-day period.
SECTION 6.7Rights of Holders to Receive Payment. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Indenture, the right of any Holder to receive payment of principal of, premium, if any, or interest on the Notes held by such Holder, on or after the respective due dates expressed in the Notes, or to bring suit for the enforcement of any such payment on or after such respective dates, shall not be impaired or affected without the consent of such Holder.
SECTION 6.8Collection Suit by Trustee. If an Event of Default specified in Sections 6.1(i) or (ii) occurs and is continuing, the Trustee may recover judgment in its own name and as trustee of an express trust against the Issuers for the whole amount then due and owing (together with interest on any unpaid interest to the extent lawful) and the amounts provided for in Section 7.6.
-73-


SECTION 6.9Trustee May File Proofs of Claim. The Trustee may file such proofs of claim and other papers or documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Trustee (including any claim for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Trustee, its agents and counsel) and the Holders of the Notes allowed in any judicial proceedings relative to the Issuers (or any other obligor upon the Notes, including the Guarantors) or their respective creditors or properties and is entitled and empowered to participate as a member in any official committee of creditors appointed in such manner and to collect, receive and distribute any money or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and, unless prohibited by law or applicable regulations, may vote on behalf of the Holders (pursuant to the written direction of Required Holders) in any election of a trustee in bankruptcy or other Person performing similar functions, and any Custodian in any such judicial proceeding is hereby authorized by each Holder to make payments to the Trustee and, in the event that the Trustee shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Holders, to pay to the Trustee any amount due it for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Trustee, its agents and its counsel, and any other amounts due the Trustee under Section 7.6. To the extent that the payment of any such compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Trustee, its agents and counsel, and any other amounts due the Trustee or any Agent hereunder out of the estate in any such proceeding, shall be denied for any reason, payment of the same shall be secured by a Lien on, and shall be paid out of, any and all distributions, dividends, money, securities and other properties that the Holders of the Notes may be entitled to receive in such proceeding whether in liquidation or under any plan of reorganization or arrangement or otherwise. Nothing herein contained shall be deemed to authorize the Trustee to authorize or consent to or accept or adopt on behalf of any Holder any plan or reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition affecting the Notes or the rights of any Holder thereof, or to authorize the Trustee to vote in respect of the claim of any Holder in such proceeding.
SECTION 6.10Priorities. The Trustee shall pay out any money or property received by it in the following order:
First: to the Trustee, in each of its capacities under this Indenture, for amounts due under Section 7.6;
Second: to Holders for amounts due and unpaid on the Notes for principal, premium, if any, and interest, ratably, without preference or priority of any kind, according to the amounts due and payable on the Notes for principal, premium, if any, and interest, respectively; and
Third: to the Issuers or, to the extent the Trustee receives any amount for any Guarantor, to such Guarantor as a court of competent jurisdiction shall direct.
The Trustee may fix a record date and payment date for any payment to Holders pursuant to this Section. At least 15 days before such record date, the Issuers (or Trustee) shall deliver to each Holder and the Trustee a notice that states the record date, the payment date and amount to be paid.
SECTION 6.11Undertaking for Costs. In any suit for the enforcement of any right or remedy under this Indenture or in any suit against the Trustee for any action taken or omitted by it as Trustee, a court in its discretion may require the filing by any party litigant in the suit of an undertaking to pay the costs of the suit, and the court in its discretion may assess reasonable costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, against any party litigant in the suit, having due regard to the merits and good faith of the claims or defenses made by the party litigant. This Section does not apply to a suit by the Trustee, a suit by a Holder pursuant to Section 6.7 or a suit by Holders of more than 10% in outstanding principal amount of the Notes.

ARTICLE VII
Trustee
SECTION 7.1Duties of Trustee.
(a)If an Event of Default has occurred with respect to the Notes and is continuing, the Trustee shall, in the exercise of its rights and powers vested in it under this Indenture, use the same degree of care and skill in its exercise of such rights and powers as a prudent Person would exercise or use under the circumstances in the conduct of such Person’s own affairs, subject to the provisions of clause (h) below.
(b)Except during the continuance of an Event of Default:
(i)the duties of the Trustee and the Agents shall be determined solely by the express provisions of this Indenture and the Trustee and the Agents undertake to perform such duties and only such duties as are specifically set forth in this Indenture and no implied covenants or obligations shall be read into this Indenture against the Trustee or the Agents; and
(ii)in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct on its part, the Trustee may conclusively rely, as to the truth of the statements and the correctness of the opinions expressed therein, upon certificates or opinions furnished to the Trustee under this Indenture, the Notes and the Guarantees, as applicable. However, in the case of any such certificates or opinions which by any provisions hereof are specifically required to be furnished to the Trustee, the Trustee shall examine such certificates and opinions to determine whether or not they conform to the requirements of this Indenture, the Notes and the Guarantees as the case may be (but need not confirm or investigate the accuracy of mathematical calculations or other facts stated therein).

SECTION 7.2Rights of Trustee.

(d)The Trustee shall not be liable for any action it takes or omits to take in good faith which it believes to be authorized or within its rights or powers; provided, however, that the Trustee’s conduct does not constitute willful misconduct or gross negligence as determined in a final non-appealable decision of a court of competent jurisdiction.
(e)The Trustee may consult with counsel of its selection, and the advice or opinion of counsel with respect to legal matters relating to this Indenture, the Notes and the Guarantees shall be full and complete authorization and protection from liability in respect to any action taken, omitted or suffered by it hereunder or under the Notes and the Guarantees in good faith and in accordance with the advice or opinion of such counsel.
(f)The Trustee and the Agents shall not be bound to make any investigation into any statement, warranty or representation, or the facts or matters stated in any resolution, certificate, statement, instrument, opinion, notice, request, direction, consent, order, bond or other paper or document made or in connection with this Indenture; moreover, the Trustee and the Agents shall not be bound to make any investigation into (i) the performance or observance of any of the covenants, agreements or other terms or conditions set forth herein, (ii) the occurrence of any default, or the validity, enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of this Indenture or any other agreement, instrument or document or (iii) the facts or matters stated in any resolution, certificate, statement, instrument, opinion, report, notice, request, direction, consent, order, bond, debenture, note or other evidence of indebtedness or other paper or document, but the Trustee or an Agent, in its discretion, may make such further inquiry or investigation into such facts or matters as it may see fit, and, if the Trustee or an Agent, as applicable, shall determine to make such further inquiry or investigation, it shall be entitled to examine the books, records and premises of the Issuers, personally or by agent or attorney and shall incur no liability or additional liability of any kind by reason of such inquiry or investigation.
-76-


(g)The Trustee shall not be deemed to have knowledge of any Default or Event of Default except any Default or Event of Default of which a Responsible Officer shall have (x) received written notification from the Issuers or a Holder at the Corporate Trust Office of the Trustee and such notice references the Notes and this Indenture or (y) obtained “actual knowledge.” “Actual knowledge” shall mean the actual fact or statement of knowing by a Responsible Officer without independent investigation with respect thereto.
(h)In no event shall the Trustee or an Agent be responsible or liable for special, indirect, consequential, punitive or incidental loss or damage of any kind whatsoever (including, but not limited to, loss of profit) irrespective of whether the Trustee or Agent has been advised of the likelihood of such loss or damage and regardless of the form of action.

(k)The Trustee shall not have any duty (A) to see to any recording, filing, or depositing of this Indenture or any agreement referred to herein, or to see to the maintenance of any such recording or filing or depositing or to any rerecording, re-filing or redepositing of any thereof or (B) to see to any insurance.
(l)The right of the Trustee or an Agent to take or refrain from taking any actions enumerated in this Indenture shall not be construed as a duty.

(n)To help fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, the Trustee shall obtain, verify and record information that identifies individuals or entities that establish a relationship or open an account with the Trustee. The Trustee shall ask for and the parties hereby agree that they shall provide the Trustee with such information as it may request, including, but not limited to, each party’s name, address, tax identification number and other information that shall allow the Trustee to identify the individual or entity who is establishing the relationship or opening the account. The Trustee may also ask for formation documents such as articles of incorporation, an offering memorandum or other identifying documents to be provided.
(o)Under no circumstances will the Trustee be liable in its individual capacity for the obligations evidenced by the Notes.
(p)If any party fails to deliver a notice relating to an event the fact of which, pursuant to this Indenture, requires notice to be sent to the Trustee, the Trustee may conclusively rely on its failure to
-77-


receive such notice as reason to act as if no such event occurred, unless such Responsible Officer of the Trustee had actual knowledge of such event.
(q)The Trustee shall not be liable in respect of any payment (as to the correctness of amount, entitlement to receive or any other matters relating to payment) or notice effected by the Issuers or any Paying Agent or any records maintained by any co-Registrar with respect to the Notes.
(r)The Trustee shall not be required to give any bond or surety in respect of the performance of its powers and duties hereunder.
SECTION 7.3Individual Rights of Trustee. The Trustee, in its individual or any other capacity, may become the owner or pledgee of Notes and may otherwise deal with the Issuers, the Guarantors or their Affiliates with the same rights it would have if it were not Trustee. Any Paying Agent, Registrar, co-registrar or co-paying agent may do the same with like rights. However, the Trustee must comply with Section 7.9. In addition, the Trustee shall be permitted to engage in transactions with the Issuers; provided, however, that if the Trustee acquires any conflicting interest the Trustee must (i) eliminate such conflict within 90 days of acquiring such conflicting interest, (ii) apply to the Commission for permission to continue acting as Trustee or (iii) resign.
SECTION 7.4Disclaimer. Neither the Trustee nor any Agent shall be responsible for and none of them makes any representation as to the validity or adequacy of this Indenture, the Notes or the Guarantees, neither of them shall be accountable for the Issuers’ use of the Notes or the proceeds from the Notes, and neither of them shall be responsible for any statement of the Issuers in this Indenture or in any document issued in connection with the sale of the Notes or in the Notes other than the Trustee’s certificate of authentication or for the use or application of any funds received by any Paying Agent other than the Trustee.
SECTION 7.5Notice of Defaults. If a Default occurs and is continuing and is actually known to a Responsible Officer of the Trustee, the Trustee shall deliver to each Holder notice of the Default within 90 days after it is known to the Trustee. Except in the case of a Default in the payment of principal of, premium (if any) or interest on any Note, the Trustee may withhold notice if and so long as a Responsible Officer of the Trustee in good faith determines that withholding notice is in the interests of the Holders.
SECTION 7.6Compensation and Indemnity. The Issuers shall pay to the Trustee in any capacity and the Agents from time to time such compensation for their services as the parties shall agree in writing from time to time. The Trustee’s compensation shall not be limited by any law on compensation of a trustee of an express trust. The Issuers shall reimburse the Trustee and the Agents upon request for all reasonable disbursements, advances, costs, fees and expenses incurred or made by it, including, but not limited to, costs of collection, costs of preparing and reviewing reports, certificates and other documents, costs of preparation and mailing of notices to Holders and reasonable costs of counsel, in addition to the compensation for its services. Such expenses shall include the reasonable compensation, fees, expenses, disbursements, court costs and advances of the Trustee’s agents, counsel, accountants and experts. The Issuers shall indemnify the Trustee or any predecessor Trustee in each of its capacities hereunder (including Paying Agent, and Registrar), and each of their officers, directors, employees, counsel and agents, against any and all loss, liability, damages, cost, fees or expense (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ compensation, fees, expenses, court costs and disbursements) incurred by it in connection with the administration of this trust and the performance of their duties hereunder and under the Notes and the Guarantees, including the costs and expenses of
-78-


enforcing this Indenture (including this Section 7.6, including reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses and court costs), the Notes and the Guarantees and of defending itself against any claims (whether asserted by any Holder, the Issuers, the Guarantors or otherwise). The Trustee and the Agents shall notify the Issuers promptly of any claim for which it may seek indemnity. Failure by the Trustee or an Agent to so notify the Issuers shall not relieve the Issuers of their obligations hereunder. The Issuers shall defend the claim and the Trustee and the Agents may have separate counsel and the Issuers shall pay the reasonable compensation, fees, expenses, court costs and disbursements of such counsel. The Issuers need not reimburse any expense or indemnify against any loss, liability or expense incurred by the Trustee or an Agent as a result of its own willful misconduct or gross negligence as determined by a final non-appealable decision of a court of competent jurisdiction.
To secure the Issuers’ payment obligations in this Section, the Trustee shall have a lien prior to the Notes on all money or property held or collected by the Trustee other than money or property held in trust to pay principal of and interest on particular Notes. The right of the Trustee to receive payment of any amounts due under this Section 7.6 shall not be subordinate to any other liability or indebtedness of the Issuer.
The Issuers’ obligations pursuant to this Section and any lien arising hereunder shall survive the satisfaction and discharge of this Indenture and the resignation or removal of the Trustee or an Agent. When the Trustee or an Agent incurs expenses after the occurrence of a Default specified in Sections 6.1(v) or (vi) with respect to the Issuers, the expenses are intended to constitute expenses of administration under any Bankruptcy Law.
Pursuant to Section 10.1, the obligations of the Issuers hereunder are jointly and severally guaranteed by the Guarantors.
SECTION 7.7Replacement of Trustee. The Trustee may resign at any time by so notifying the Issuers. The Required Holders may remove the Trustee by so notifying the Issuers and the Trustee in writing and may appoint a successor Trustee. The Issuers shall remove the Trustee if:
(i)the Trustee fails to comply with Section 7.9;
(ii)the Trustee is adjudged bankrupt or insolvent;
(iii)a receiver or other public officer takes charge of the Trustee or its property; or
(iv)the Trustee otherwise becomes incapable of acting.
If the Trustee resigns or is removed by the Issuers or by the Required Holders and such Holders do not reasonably promptly appoint a successor Trustee, or if a vacancy exists in the office of Trustee for any reason (the Trustee in such event being referred to herein as the retiring Trustee), the Issuers shall promptly appoint a successor Trustee.
A successor Trustee shall deliver a written acceptance of its appointment to the retiring Trustee and to the Issuers. Thereupon the resignation or removal of the retiring Trustee shall become effective, and the successor Trustee shall have all the rights, powers and duties of the Trustee under this Indenture. The successor Trustee shall mail a notice of its succession to Holders. The retiring Trustee shall promptly transfer all property held by it as Trustee to the successor Trustee, subject to the lien provided for in Section 7.6. All costs reasonably incurred in connection with any resignation or removal hereunder shall be borne by the Issuers.
-79-


If a successor Trustee does not take office within 30 days after the retiring Trustee resigns or is removed, the retiring Trustee or the Holders of at least 10% in principal amount of the Notes may petition, at the Issuers’ expense, any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor Trustee.
If the Trustee fails to comply with Section 7.9, unless the Trustee’s duty to resign is stayed, any Holder may petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the removal of the Trustee and the appointment of a successor Trustee.
Notwithstanding the replacement of the Trustee pursuant to this Section 7.7, the Issuers’ obligations under Section 7.6 shall continue for the benefit of the retiring Trustee.
SECTION 7.8Successor Trustee by Merger. If the Trustee, consolidates with, merges or converts into, or transfers all or substantially all its corporate trust business or assets to, another corporation or banking association, the resulting, surviving or transferee corporation without any further act shall be the successor Trustee.
In case at the time such successor or successors by merger, conversion or consolidation to the Trustee shall succeed to the trusts created by this Indenture, any of the Notes shall have been authenticated but not delivered, any such successor to the Trustee may adopt the certificate of authentication of any predecessor trustee, and deliver such Notes so authenticated; and in case at that time any of the Notes shall not have been authenticated, any successor to the Trustee may authenticate such Notes either in the name of any predecessor hereunder or in the name of the successor to the Trustee; and in all such cases such certificates shall have the full force which it is anywhere in the Notes or in this Indenture provided that the certificate of the Trustee shall have.
SECTION 7.9Eligibility; Disqualification. The Trustee shall have a combined capital and surplus of at least $50.0 million as set forth in its most recent filed annual report of condition.
This Indenture shall always have a Trustee who satisfies the requirements of TIA § 310(a)(1), (2) and (5). The Trustee is subject to TIA § 310(b).
SECTION 7.10Limitation on Duty of Trustee. The Trustee shall not have any duty to ascertain or inquire as to the performance or observance of any of the terms of this Indenture, the Notes and the Guarantees by the Issuers, the Guarantors or any other Person.
SECTION 7.11Preferential Collection of Claims Against the Issuers. The Trustee is subject to TIA § 311(a), excluding any creditor relationship listed in TIA § 311(b). A Trustee who has resigned or been removed shall be subject to TIA § 311(a) to the extent indicated therein.
The Issuers shall promptly notify the Trustee in writing when any Notes are listed on any stock exchange and of any delisting thereof.
ARTICLE VIII

SECTION 8.1Discharge of Liability on Notes; Defeasance.

-80-


(a)    This Indenture shall be discharged and will cease to be of further effect (except as to surviving rights of registration of transfer or exchange of Notes and certain rights of the Trustee, as expressly provided for in this Indenture) as to all outstanding Notes, when:
(1)     either (i) all such Notes that have been authenticated and delivered, except lost, stolen or destroyed Notes that have been replaced or paid and Notes for whose payment money has been deposited in trust and thereafter repaid to the Issuers, have been delivered to the Trustee for cancellation or (ii) all Notes issued hereunder that have not been delivered to the Trustee for cancellation have become due and payable by reason of mailing or electronic delivery of a notice of redemption or otherwise or will become due and payable by reason of the mailing or electronic delivery of a notice of redemption or otherwise within one year and the Issuers have irrevocably deposited or caused to be deposited with the Trustee as trust funds in trust solely for the benefit of the Holders of the Notes, cash in U.S. dollars, non-callable U.S. Government Securities, or a combination thereof, in amounts as will be sufficient without consideration of any reinvestment of interest, to pay and discharge the entire Indebtedness on the Notes not delivered to the Trustee for cancellation for principal, premium, if any, and accrued interest to the date of maturity or redemption;
(2)     no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing on the date of the deposit or will occur as a result of the deposit (other than a Default resulting from borrowing of funds to be applied to such deposit and any similar and simultaneous deposit relating to other Indebtedness, and in each case the grant of any Lien securing such borrowing) and the deposit will not result in a breach or violation of, or constitute a default under, any other material instrument to which the Issuers are a party or by which the Issuers are bound;
(3)    the Issuers have paid or caused to be paid all sums payable by them under this Indenture; and
(4)     the Issuers have delivered irrevocable instructions to the Trustee to apply the deposited money toward the payment of the Notes at maturity or the Redemption Date, as the case may be.
In addition, the Issuers must deliver an Officers’ Certificate and an Opinion of Counsel to the Trustee stating that all conditions precedent to satisfaction and discharge have been satisfied.
(b)    Subject to Sections 8.1(c) and 8.2, the Issuers at any time may terminate (i) all of their obligations under the Notes and this Indenture and have each Guarantor’s obligation discharged with respect to its Guarantee and cure any then-existing Events of Default (“Legal Defeasance”) or (ii) their obligations under Sections 3.2, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 3.9 and 3.11 and the operation of Section 4.1 and Sections 6.1(iii) (with respect to any Default under Sections 3.2, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 3.9 and 3.11 and Section 4.1, 6.1(iv), 6.1(v) (with respect to Significant Subsidiaries only), 6.1(vi) (with respect to Significant Subsidiaries only), 6.1(vii) and 6.1(viii) (“Covenant Defeasance”). The Issuers may exercise their Legal Defeasance option notwithstanding their prior exercise of the Covenant Defeasance option. In the event that the Issuers terminate all of their obligations under the Notes and this Indenture (with respect to such Notes) by exercising the Legal Defeasance option or the Covenant Defeasance option, the obligations of each Guarantor under its Guarantee of such Notes shall be terminated simultaneously with the termination of such obligations.
-81-


If the Issuers exercise their Legal Defeasance option, payment of the Notes so defeased may not be accelerated because of an Event of Default. If the Issuers exercise their Covenant Defeasance option, payment of the Notes so defeased may not be accelerated because of an Event of Default specified in Section 6.1(iii) (with respect to any Default by the Issuers or any of the Restricted Subsidiaries with any of their obligations under Article III other than Sections 3.1, 3.12 and 3.16), 6.1(iv), 6.1(v) (with respect to Significant Subsidiaries only), 6.1(vi) (with respect to Significant Subsidiaries only), 6.1(vii) or 6.1(viii).

Thereafter, the Issuers’ obligations in Sections 7.6, 8.5 and 8.6 shall survive such satisfaction and discharge.
SECTION 8.2Conditions to Defeasance.
(a)The Issuers may exercise their Legal Defeasance option or their Covenant Defeasance option only if:
(i)the Issuers have irrevocably deposited with the Trustee, in trust, for the benefit of the Holders of the Notes, cash in U.S. dollars, non-callable U.S. Government Securities, or a combination of cash in U.S. dollars and non-callable U.S. Government Securities, in such amounts as will be sufficient, in the opinion of a nationally recognized investment bank, appraisal firm or firm of independent public accountants, to pay the principal of, premium, if any, and interest due on the outstanding Notes (calculated on the cash interest rate, if applicable) on the maturity date of the Notes or on the applicable Redemption Date, as the case may be, of such principal, premium, if any, or interest on such Notes and the Issuers have specified whether such Notes are being defeased to maturity or to a particular Redemption Date;
(ii)in the case of Legal Defeasance, the Issuers have delivered to the Trustee an Opinion of Counsel reasonably acceptable to the Trustee confirming that, subject to customary assumptions and exclusions, (a) the Issuers have received from, or there has been published by, the United States Internal Revenue Service a ruling or (b) since the date of the such Indenture, there has been a change in the applicable U.S. federal income tax law, in either case to the effect that, and based thereon such Opinion of Counsel will confirm that, subject to customary assumptions and exclusions, the Beneficial Owners of the outstanding Notes will not recognize income, gain or loss for U.S. federal income tax purposes, as applicable, as a result of such Legal Defeasance and will be subject to U.S. federal income tax on the same amounts, in the same manner and at the same times as would have been the case if such Legal Defeasance had not occurred;
(iii)in the case of Covenant Defeasance, the Issuers have delivered to the Trustee an Opinion of Counsel reasonably acceptable to the Trustee confirming that, subject to customary assumptions and exclusions, the Beneficial Owners of the outstanding Notes will not recognize income, gain or loss for U.S. federal income tax purposes as a result of such Covenant Defeasance and will be subject to U.S. federal income tax on the same amounts, in the same
-82-


manner and at the same times as would have been the case if such Covenant Defeasance had not occurred;
(iv)no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing on the date of such deposit (other than a Default or Event of Default resulting from the borrowing of funds to be applied to make such deposit and the grant of any Lien securing such borrowings);
(v)such Legal Defeasance or Covenant Defeasance will not result in a breach or violation of, or constitute a default under any other material agreement or instrument (other than this Indenture) to which the Issuers or any Guarantor is a party or by which the Issuers or any Guarantor is bound; and
(vi)the Issuers have delivered to the Trustee an Officers’ Certificate and an Opinion of Counsel (which Opinion of Counsel may be subject to customary assumptions and exclusions), each stating that all conditions precedent provided for or relating to the Legal Defeasance or the Covenant Defeasance, as the case may be, have been complied with.
Before or after a deposit, the Issuers may make arrangements satisfactory to the Trustee for the redemption of such Notes at a future date in accordance with Article V.
SECTION 8.3Application of Trust Money. The Trustee shall hold in trust money or U.S. Government Securities deposited with it pursuant to this Article VIII. It shall apply the deposited money and the money from U.S. Government Securities through the Paying Agent and in accordance with this Indenture to the payment of principal of and interest on the Notes.
SECTION 8.4Repayment to Issuers. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the Trustee shall deliver or pay to the Issuers from time to time upon Company Order any money or U.S. Government Securities held by it as provided in this Article VIII which, in the opinion of an Independent Financial Advisor expressed in a written certification thereof delivered to the Trustee, are in excess of the amount thereof which would then be required to be deposited to effect legal defeasance or covenant defeasance, as applicable; provided that the Trustee shall not be required to liquidate any U.S. Government Securities in order to comply with the provisions of this Section 8.4.
Subject to any applicable abandoned property law, the Trustee and the Paying Agent shall pay to the Issuers upon written request any money held by them for the payment of principal of or interest on the Notes that remains unclaimed for two years, and, thereafter, Holders entitled to the money must look to the Issuers for payment as general creditors, and all liability of the Trustee or such Paying Agent with respect to such trust money, and all liability of the Issuers as Trustee thereof, shall thereupon cease.
SECTION 8.5Indemnity for U.S. Government Securities. The Issuers shall pay and shall indemnify the Trustee against any tax, fee or other charge imposed on or assessed against deposited U.S. Government Securities or the principal and interest received on such U.S. Government Securities, other than any such tax, fee or other charge which by law is for the account of the Holders of the outstanding Notes.
SECTION 8.6Reinstatement. If the Trustee or Paying Agent is unable to apply any money or U.S. Government Securities in accordance with this Article VIII by reason of any legal proceeding or by reason of any order or judgment of any court or governmental authority enjoining, restraining or otherwise prohibiting such application, the obligations of the Issuers and each Guarantor under this Indenture, the Notes and the Guarantees shall be revived and reinstated as though no deposit had
-83-


occurred pursuant to this Article VIII until such time as the Trustee or Paying Agent is permitted to apply all such money or U.S. Government Securities in accordance with this Article VIII; provided, however, that, if any of the Issuers or the Guarantors has made any payment of interest on or principal of any Notes because of the reinstatement of its obligations, the Issuers or any Guarantor, as the case may be, shall be subrogated to the rights of the Holders of such Notes to receive such payment from the money or U.S. Government Securities held by the Trustee or Paying Agent.
ARTICLE IX

    For the avoidance of doubt, a Guarantor will only be required to execute amendments of the type described in this Section 9.1 if it relates to such Guarantor’s Guarantee.

SECTION 9.2With Consent of Holders.
(a)This Indenture, the Notes and the Guarantees may be amended or supplemented with the consent of the Required Holders (including, without limitation, consents obtained in connection with a purchase of, or tender offer or exchange offer for, the Notes) and any existing or past Default or compliance with any provisions of such documents may be waived (except a default in respect of the payment of principal or interest on such Notes) with the consent of the Required Holders (including, without limitation, consents obtained in connection with a purchase of, or tender offer or exchange offer for, the Notes). However, without the consent of each affected Holder of a Note (including, for the avoidance of doubt, any Notes held by Affiliates), no amendment, supplement or waiver may (with respect to any Notes held by a non-consenting Holder):
(i)reduce the principal amount of Notes whose Holders must consent to an amendment; or change the definition of “Required Holders”;
(ii)reduce the principal of or change the Stated Maturity of any Note or alter the provisions with respect to the redemption of the Notes issued thereunder (other than the provisions of Section 3.9 except as set forth in clause (x) below);
(iii)reduce the rate of or change the time for payment of interest on any Note;
(iv)waive a Default or Event of Default in the payment of principal of, premium, if any, or interest on the Notes (except a rescission of acceleration of the Notes by the Required Holders and a waiver of the payment default that resulted from such acceleration or in respect of a covenant or provision contained in this Indenture or any Guarantee, which cannot be amended or modified without the consent of all Holders);
(v)make any Note payable in money other than that stated in the Notes;
(vi)make any change in the provisions of this Indenture relating to waivers of past Defaults or the rights of Holders of Notes to receive payments of principal of, or interest or
-85-


premium, if any, on the Notes issued hereunder or impair the right of any Holder of Notes to institute suit for the enforcement of any payment on or with respect to such Holder’s Notes;
(vii)waive a redemption payment with respect to any Note (other than a payment required by Section 3.9 except as set forth in clause (x) below);
(viii)make any change to or modify the ranking of the Notes that would adversely affect the Holders of Notes;
(ix)modify the Guarantees in any manner adverse to the Holders of the Notes;
(x)amend, change or modify in any material respect the obligation of ZoomInfo Technologies to make and consummate a Change of Control Offer in respect of a Change of Control that has occurred; or
(xi)make any change in the amendment and waiver provisions of this Indenture that require each Holder’s consent as described in clauses (i) through (x) of this sentence.
(b)It shall not be necessary for the consent of the Holders under this Section 9.2 to approve the particular form of any proposed amendment. It shall be sufficient if such consent approves the substance thereof. For the avoidance of doubt, no amendment to, or deletion of any of the covenants contained in Article III of this Indenture (other than Section 3.1) shall be deemed to impair or affect any rights of Holders of the Notes to receive payment of principal of, or premium, if any, or interest on, the Notes or the right of any holder to institute suit for the enforcement of payments on or with respect to any such holder’s Notes. The provisions under this Indenture relating to the Issuers’ obligation to make an offer to purchase the Notes as a result of a Change of Control, including the definition of “Change of Control,” may be waived, amended or modified at any time (including after a Change of Control) with the written consent of the holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Notes.
(c)After an amendment under this Section 9.2 becomes effective, the Issuers shall mail or electronically deliver to the Holders of Notes affected thereby a notice briefly describing such amendment. The failure of the Issuers to deliver such notice, or any defect therein, shall not in any way impair or affect the validity of an amendment under this Section 9.2.
SECTION 9.3Effect of Consents and Waivers. A consent to an amendment or a waiver by a Holder of a Note shall bind the Holder and every subsequent Holder of that Note or portion of the Note that evidences the same debt as the consenting Holder’s Note, even if notation of the consent or waiver is not made on the Note. After an amendment or waiver becomes effective, it shall bind every Holder unless it makes a change described in clauses (i) through (ix) of Section 9.2(a), in which case the amendment or waiver or other action shall bind each Holder who has consented to it and every subsequent Holder of a Note that evidences the same debt as the consenting Holder’s Notes. Any amendment, other than an amendment that in the sole determination of the Trustee adversely affects the rights, duties, liabilities or immunities of the Trustee or a waiver, in each case, made pursuant to Section 9.2 shall become effective upon receipt by the Trustee of the requisite number of written consents.
The Issuers may, but shall not be obligated to, fix a record date for the purpose of determining the Holders entitled to give their consent or take any other action described above or required or permitted to be taken pursuant to this Indenture. If a record date is fixed, then notwithstanding the immediately preceding paragraph, those Persons who were Holders at such record date (or their duly designated
-86-


proxies), and only those Persons, shall be entitled to give such consent or to take any such action, whether or not such Persons continue to be Holders after such record date.
SECTION 9.4Notation on or Exchange of Notes. If an amendment changes the terms of a Note, the Trustee, at the request of the Issuers, may require the Holder to deliver it to the Trustee. The Trustee, at the request of the Issuers, may place an appropriate notation on the Note regarding the changed terms and return it to the Holder. Alternatively, if the Issuers so determine, the Issuers in exchange for the Note shall issue and the Trustee shall authenticate a new Note that reflects the changed terms. Failure to make the appropriate notation or to issue a new Note shall not affect the validity of such amendment.
SECTION 9.5Trustee To Sign Amendments. The Trustee shall sign any amendment, supplement or waiver authorized pursuant to this Article IX if the amendment, supplement or waiver does not, in the sole determination of the Trustee, adversely affect the rights, duties, liabilities or immunities of the Trustee. If it does, the Trustee may but need not sign it. In signing any amendment, supplement or waiver pursuant to this Article IX, the Trustee shall be entitled to receive, and (subject to Sections 7.1 and 7.2) shall be fully protected in relying upon, an Officers’ Certificate and an Opinion of Counsel stating that such amendment, supplement or waiver is authorized or permitted by this Indenture, that all conditions precedent to such amendment required by this Indenture have been complied with and that such amendment, supplement or waiver is the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Issuers, enforceable against the Issuers in accordance with its terms, subject to customary exceptions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Opinion of Counsel will be required in connection with releasing a Guarantor pursuant to Section 10.2(b).
ARTICLE X
Guarantees
SECTION 10.1Guarantees.

Each Guarantor agrees (to the extent lawful) that the Guarantor Obligations may be extended or renewed, in whole or in part, without notice or further assent from it, and that it shall remain bound under this Article X notwithstanding any extension or renewal of any Guarantor Obligation.
(b)Each Guarantor waives (to the extent lawful) presentation to, demand of, payment from and protest to the Issuers of any of the Guarantor Obligations and also waives (to the extent lawful) notice of protest for nonpayment. Each Guarantor waives (to the extent lawful) notice of any default under the Notes or the Guarantor Obligations.
(c)Each Guarantor further agrees that its Guarantee herein constitutes a Guarantee of payment when due (and not a Guarantee of collection) and waives any right to require that any resort be had by any Holder to any security held for payment of the Guarantor Obligations.
-87-


(d)Except as set forth in Section 10.2 and Article VIII, the obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall not be subject to any reduction, limitation, impairment or termination for any reason (other than payment of the Guarantor Obligations in full), including any claim of waiver, release, surrender, alteration or compromise, and shall not (to the extent lawful) be subject to any defense of setoff, counterclaim, recoupment or termination whatsoever or by reason of the invalidity, illegality or unenforceability of the Guarantor Obligations or otherwise. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the obligations of each Guarantor herein shall not (to the extent lawful) be discharged or impaired or otherwise affected by (a) the failure of any Holder to assert any claim or demand or to enforce any right or remedy against the Issuers or any other Person under this Indenture, the Notes or any other agreement or otherwise; (b) any extension or renewal of any thereof; (c) any rescission, waiver, amendment or modification of any of the terms or provisions of this Indenture, the Notes or any other agreement; (d) the release of any security held by any Holder for the Guarantor Obligations or any of them; (e) the failure of any Holder to exercise any right or remedy against any other Guarantor; (f) any change in the ownership of the Issuers; (g) any default, failure or delay, willful or otherwise, in the performance of the Guarantor Obligations; or (h) any other act or thing or omission or delay to do any other act or thing which may or might in any manner or to any extent vary the risk of any Guarantor or would otherwise operate as a discharge of such Guarantor as a matter of law or equity.
(e)Each Guarantor agrees that its Guarantee herein shall remain in full force and effect until payment in full of all the Guarantor Obligations or such Guarantor is released from its Guarantee in compliance with Section 4.1, Section 10.2 and Article VIII. Each Guarantor further agrees that its Guarantee herein shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time payment, or any part thereof, of principal of, premium, if any, or interest on any of the Guarantor Obligations is rescinded or must otherwise be restored by any Holder upon the bankruptcy or reorganization of the Issuers or otherwise.
(f)In furtherance of the foregoing and not in limitation of any other right which any Holder has at law or in equity against any Guarantor by virtue hereof, upon the failure of the Issuers to pay any of the Guarantor Obligations when and as the same shall become due, whether at maturity, by acceleration, by redemption or otherwise, each Guarantor hereby promises to and shall, upon receipt of written demand by the Trustee, forthwith pay, or cause to be paid, in cash, to the Trustee, the Agents or the Trustee on behalf of the Holders and such Agents an amount equal to the sum of (i) the unpaid amount of such Guarantor Obligations then due and owing and (ii) accrued and unpaid interest on such Guarantor Obligations then due and owing (but only to the extent not prohibited by law) (including interest accruing after the filing of any petition in bankruptcy or the commencement of any insolvency, reorganization or like proceeding relating to the Issuers or any Guarantor whether or not a claim for post-filing or post-petition interest is allowed in such proceeding).
(g)Each Guarantor further agrees that, as between such Guarantor, on the one hand, and the Holders, on the other hand, (x) the maturity of the Guarantor Obligations guaranteed hereby may be accelerated as provided in this Indenture for the purposes of its Guarantee herein, notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition preventing such acceleration in respect of the Guarantor Obligations guaranteed hereby and (y) in the event of any such declaration of acceleration of such Guarantor Obligations, such Guarantor Obligations (whether or not due and payable) shall forthwith become due and payable by the Guarantor for the purposes of this Guarantee.
(h)Each Guarantor also agrees to pay any and all reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by the Trustee or the Holders in enforcing any rights under this Section.
-88-


(i)Neither the Issuers nor the Guarantors shall be required to make a notation on the Notes to reflect any Guarantee or any release, termination or discharge thereof and any such notation shall not be a condition to the validity of any Guarantee.
SECTION 10.2Limitation on Liability; Termination, Release and Discharge.
(a)Any term or provision of this Indenture to the contrary notwithstanding, the obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall be limited to the maximum amount as shall, after giving effect to all other contingent and fixed liabilities of such Guarantor and after giving effect to any collections from or payments made by or on behalf of any other Guarantor in respect of the obligations of such other Guarantor under its Guarantee or pursuant to its contribution obligations under this Indenture, result in the obligations of such Guarantor under its Guarantee not constituting a fraudulent conveyance or fraudulent transfer under federal or state law or the laws of the jurisdiction of organization of such Guarantor and not otherwise being void or voidable under any similar laws affecting the rights of creditors generally.
(b)A Guarantee by a Guarantor of a series of Notes shall be automatically and unconditionally released and discharged, and each Guarantor and its obligations under the Guarantee and this Indenture shall be released and discharged upon:
(1)    the sale, disposition or other transfer (including through merger or consolidation) of (x) Capital Stock of the applicable Guarantor (including any sale, disposition or other transfer), after which such Guarantor is no longer a Restricted Subsidiary, or (y) all or substantially all the assets of such Guarantor; provided that, in each case, such sale, disposition or other transfer is made in compliance with the provisions of this Indenture;

(4)    ZoomInfo Technologies exercises its legal defeasance option or its covenant defeasance option as described under Article VIII or its obligations under this Indenture are discharged in accordance with the terms of this Indenture as described in Section 8.1; or
(5)    such Guarantor is also a guarantor or borrower under the Senior Secured Credit Facility and, at the time of release of its Guarantee, (x) has been released, or concurrently with the release hereunder will be, from its guarantee of, and all pledges and security, if any, granted in connection with the Senior Secured Credit Facility (which may be conditioned on the concurrent release hereunder) except as a result of a discharge or release arising from payment under such guarantee, (y) is not an obligor under any Indebtedness in excess of $50.0 million and (z) does not guarantee (and is not required to guarantee pursuant to Section 3.11) any Indebtedness of ZoomInfo Technologies or any Restricted Subsidiaries (other than any guarantee that will be released upon the release of the Guarantee hereunder).

(e)The release of a Guarantor from its Guarantee and its obligations under this Indenture in accordance with the provisions of this Section 10.2 shall not preclude the future applications of Section 3.11 to such Person.
SECTION 10.3Right of Contribution. Each Guarantor hereby agrees that to the extent that any such Guarantor shall have paid more than its proportionate share of any payment made on the obligations under its Guarantee, such Guarantor shall be entitled to seek and receive contribution from and against the Issuers or any other Guarantor who have not paid their proportionate share of such payment. The provisions of this Section 10.3 shall in no respect limit the obligations and liabilities of each Guarantor to the Trustee and the Holders and each Guarantor shall remain liable to the Trustee and the Holders for the full amount guaranteed by such Guarantor hereunder.
SECTION 10.4No Subrogation. Notwithstanding any payment or payments made by each Guarantor hereunder, no Guarantor shall be entitled to be subrogated to any of the rights of the Trustee or any Holder against the Issuers or any other Guarantor or any collateral security or guarantee or right of offset held by the Trustee or any Holder for the payment of the Guarantor Obligations, nor shall any Guarantor seek or be entitled to seek any contribution or reimbursement from the Issuers or any other Guarantor in respect of payments made by such Guarantor hereunder, until all amounts owing to the Trustee and the Holders by the Issuers on account of the Guarantor Obligations are paid in full. If any amount shall be paid to any Guarantor on account of such subrogation rights at any time when all of the Guarantor Obligations shall not have been paid in full, such amount shall be held by such Guarantor in trust for the Trustee and the Holders, segregated from other funds of such Guarantor, and shall, forthwith upon receipt by such Guarantor, be turned over to the Trustee in the exact form received by such Guarantor (duly indorsed by such Guarantor to the Trustee, if required), to be applied against the Guarantor Obligations.

(2)    the redemption occurs within 180 days of the date of the closing of such Equity Offering.
Except pursuant to the preceding paragraph, the Notes will not be redeemable prior to February 1, 2024.

11.    Discharge and Defeasance
Subject to certain conditions set forth in the Indenture, the Issuers at any time may terminate some or all of their obligations under the Notes and the Indenture if the Issuers irrevocably deposit in trust with the Trustee money or U.S. Government Securities (sufficient, without reinvestment, in the opinion of an Independent Financial Advisor) for the payment of principal, premium (if any) and interest on the Notes to redemption or maturity, as the case may be.

12.    Amendment, Waiver
The Indenture and the Notes may be amended or waived as set forth in Article IX of the Indenture.
13.    Defaults and Remedies
Events of Default shall be as set forth in Article VI of the Indenture.
If an Event of Default occurs and is continuing, the Trustee or Holders of at least 30% in principal amount of outstanding Notes may declare all the Notes to be due and payable immediately. Certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency with respect to the Issuers are Events of Default which shall result in the Notes being due and payable immediately upon the occurrence of such Events of Default.
Holders may not enforce the Indenture or the Notes except as provided in the Indenture. The Trustee may refuse to enforce the Indenture or the Notes unless it receives indemnity or security satisfactory to the Trustee. Subject to certain limitations, Holders of a majority in principal amount of the Notes may direct the Trustee in its exercise of any trust or power. The Trustee may withhold from Holders notice of any continuing Default or Event of Default (except a Default or Event of Default in payment of principal or interest) if it determines that withholding notice is in their interest.
14.    Trustee Dealings with the Issuer
Subject to certain limitations set forth in the Indenture, the Trustee under the Indenture, in its individual or any other capacity, may become the owner or pledgee of Notes and may otherwise deal with and collect obligations owed to it by the Issuers or their Affiliates and may otherwise deal with the Issuers or their Affiliates with the same rights it would have if it were not Trustee.
15.    No Recourse Against Others
No director, manager, officer, employee, incorporator, stockholder, unitholder or member of the Issuers, any of their Subsidiaries or any of their direct or indirect parent companies, including Parent, as such, has any liability for any obligations of the Issuers or any Guarantor under the Notes, the Indenture, the Guarantees, or for any claim based on, in respect of, or by reason of, such obligations or their creation. Each Holder of Notes by accepting a Note waives and releases all such liability. This waiver and release are part of the consideration for issuance of the Notes. This waiver may not be effective to waive liabilities under the federal securities laws, and it is the view of the Commission that such waiver is against public policy.
16.    Authentication
This Note shall not be valid until an authorized signatory of the Trustee (or an authenticating agent acting on its behalf) manually signs the certificate of authentication on the other side of this Note.
17.    Abbreviations
Customary abbreviations may be used in the name of a Holder or an assignee, such as TEN COM (=tenants in common), TEN ENT (=tenants by the entirety), JT TEN (=joint tenants with rights of survivorship and not as tenants in common), CUST (=custodian) and U/G/M/A (=Uniform Gift to Minors Act).

No representation is made as to the accuracy of such numbers as printed on the Notes and reliance may be placed only on the other identification numbers placed thereon.
19.    Successor Entity
When a successor entity assumes, in accordance with the Indenture, all the obligations of its predecessor under the Notes and the Indenture, and immediately before and thereafter no Default or Event of Default exists and all other conditions of the Indenture are satisfied, the predecessor entity shall be released from those obligations.
20.    Governing Law
This Note shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York.
