The debt instruments of Interline New Jersey, primarily the credit facility entered into on June 23, 2006 and the indenture governing the terms of the 81/8% senior subordinated notes, contain significant restrictions on the payment of dividends and distributions to us by Interline New Jersey.

In addition, ordinary course distributions for overhead (up to $3.0 million annually) and taxes are permitted, as are annual payments of up to $7.5 million in respect of our stock option or other benefit plans for management or employees and (provided Interline New Jersey is not in default) aggregate payments of up to $40.0 million depending on the pro forma net leverage ratio as of the last day of the previous quarter. In addition, the indenture for the 81/8% senior subordinated notes generally restricts the ability of Interline New Jersey to pay distributions to us and to make advances to, or investments in, us to an amount generally equal to 50% of the net income of Interline New Jersey, plus an amount equal to the net proceeds from certain equity issuances, subject to compliance with a leverage ratio and no default having occurred and continuing. The indenture also contains certain permitted exceptions including (1) allowing us to pay our franchise taxes and other fees required to maintain our corporate existence, to pay for general corporate and overhead expenses and to pay expenses incurred in connection with certain financing, acquisition or disposition transactions, in an aggregate amount not to exceed $10.0 million per year; (2) allowing certain tax payments; and (3) allowing certain permitted distributions up to $75 million.
