AGREEMENT AND PLAN OF MERGER

This Agreement and Plan of Merger (this “Plan”) is made as of March 31, 2021, by and among NILT, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Merging Company”) and Nissan-Infiniti LT, a Delaware statutory trust (the “Surviving Entity”).

WHEREAS, the Merging Company is a corporation duly organized and existing under the laws of the State of Delaware;

WHEREAS, NILT Trust, a Delaware statutory trust (the “Beneficiary”), owns all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of the Merging Company and is sole beneficiary of the Surviving Entity;

WHEREAS, the Beneficiary has approved this Plan, and declared it advisable that the Merging Company merge with and into the Surviving Entity, which shall be the surviving entity, in the manner and upon the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth and with the effect provided by and pursuant to the applicable provisions of Delaware Statutory Trust Act (The “DSTA”) and the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “Act” and, together with the DSTA, the “Law”), which law permits the Merger herein contemplated;

WHEREAS, immediately following the execution and delivery of this Plan by the parties hereto, the Beneficiary will deliver a written consent adopting the Plan in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Law; and

WHEREAS, for United States federal income tax purposes, the parties intend that the Merger (as defined below) qualify as a reorganization under Section 368(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), and the parties intend, by executing this Agreement, to adopt a plan of reorganization within the meaning of Section 368 of the Code and the Treasury Regulations promulgated thereunder.

The Merger. At the Effective Time (as defined below), upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Plan and in accordance with the applicable provision of the Law, the Merging Company shall be merged with and into the Surviving Entity (the “Merger”), the separate existence of Merging Company shall cease and the existence of the Surviving Entity shall continue unaffected and unimpaired by the merger with all of the rights, privileges, immunities and powers and subject to all the duties and liabilities of a statutory trust organized under the Law.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, and subject thereto, at the Effective Time, all of the properties, rights, privileges, powers and franchises of the Merging Company shall vest in the Surviving Entity, and all debts, liabilities and duties of the Merging Company shall become the debts, liabilities and duties of Surviving Entity. At any time, or from time to time, after the Effective Time, any authorized persons of the Surviving Entity may, in the name of the Merging Company execute and deliver all such proper deeds, assignments and other instruments and take or cause to be taken all such further or other action as the Surviving Entity may deem necessary or desirable in order to (a) vest, perfect or confirm the Surviving Entity’s title to and possession of all of the Merging Company’s property, rights, privileges, powers, franchises, immunities and interests and (b) otherwise carry out the purposes of this Plan.

Outstanding Shares. All of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of the Merging Company shall, at the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of the Surviving Entity, be cancelled and cease to exist. All of the beneficial interests in the Surviving Entity shall continue unaffected and unimpaired by the Merger and shall continue to represent 100% of the beneficial interests in the Surviving Entity.

Organizational Documents. The certificate of trust and trust agreement of the Surviving Entity at the Effective Time shall be the certificate of trust and trust agreement of the Surviving Entity, respectively, each in full force and effect, until the same shall be altered or amended as therein provided or as provided by law.

Benefit. This Plan shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns.

Entire Agreement. This Plan contains the entire agreement between the parties hereto with respect to the Merger and supersedes all prior arrangements or understandings with respect thereto.

Amendment. This Plan may not be amended except by a writing signed by all parties hereto.
