In connection with the foregoing, the 2019-B SUBI Certificate (as defined in the Prior Agreement of Definitions) shall be deemed to be extinguished as of the date of this Supplement. The 2019-B Series Interest initially shall have the 2019-B SUBI Assets (as defined in the Prior Agreement of Definitions) allocated thereto and associated therewith and hereafter shall have the Series Assets allocated to and associated with from time to time such Series Interest and listed in the Schedule of 2019-B Series Assets.

8. Rights in Respect of the 2019-B Series Interest: Each Holder and Registered Pledgee of the 2019-B Series Certificate is a third-party beneficiary of this Series Supplement and the Titling Company Agreement insofar as this 2019-B Series Supplement and the Titling Company Agreement apply to the 2019-B Series Interest, the Holders of the 2019-B Series Certificate and the Registered Pledgees of the 2019-B Series Certificate. Therefore, to the extent references in the Titling Company Agreement to the ability of a “Holder” or a “Registered Pledgee” of a Series Certificate to take any action shall be deemed to refer to the Indenture Trustee (as Registered Pledgee of the 2019-B Series Certificate), acting at the direction of the Required Percentage of the Noteholders and thereafter, the Owner Trustee, acting at the direction of the Required Percentage of the Trust Certificateholders (which for this purpose shall include the Trust Certificates owned by the Issuing Entity, the Depositor, the Servicer (so long as NMAC or an Affiliate is the Servicer) and any of their respective Affiliates) until the final distribution is made with respect to the 2019-B Series Assets.

(g) The Indenture Trustee shall not be under any obligation to ascertain whether a Rating Agency Condition has been satisfied with respect to any amendment. When the Rating Agency Condition is satisfied with respect to such amendment, the Member shall deliver to a Responsible Officer of the Indenture Trustee an Officer’s Certificate to that effect, and the Indenture Trustee may conclusively rely upon the Officer’s Certificate from the Member that a Rating Agency Condition has been satisfied with respect to such amendment.
