GENERAL TERMS

 

Section 2.01      Transactions. During the Commitment Period, and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Buyer agrees to enter into Transactions with the Seller for the applicable Purchase Price. The Seller may pay the Repurchase Price in whole or in part at any time during the Commitment Period, and additional Transactions may be entered into in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof; provided, however, Seller may not repurchase one Participation Certificate without repurchasing all Participation Certificates unless otherwise consented to by the Buyer, at the direction of the Indenture Trustee. The Buyer’s obligation to enter into Transactions pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall terminate on the Termination Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Buyer shall have no commitment or obligation to enter into Transactions to the extent the Purchase Price of such Transaction exceeds the Asset Base (determined after giving effect to such proposed purchase).

 

Section 2.02      Procedure for Entering into Transactions. (a) The Seller may enter into Transactions with the Buyer during the Commitment Period on any Purchase Date; provided, that the Seller shall have given the Buyer irrevocable notice (each, a “Transaction Notice”) with a copy to the Administrative Agent and the Indenture Trustee, which notice (i) shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit A hereto, (ii) shall be signed by a Responsible Officer of the Seller and be received by the Buyer prior to 1:00 p.m. (New York time) one (1) Business Day prior to the related Purchase Date, (iii) shall specify (A) the Dollar amount of the requested Purchase Price, (B) the requested Purchase Date, (C) the information required to be included in the Asset Schedule with respect to each Participation Certificate subject of such Transaction in mutually acceptable electronic form and (D) a copy of the related “Funding Certification” being delivered pursuant to the Indenture in connection with such Transaction, if applicable, and (iv) shall have attached to it a revised Asset Schedule, dated as of the date of such notice. Each Transaction Notice on any Purchase Date shall be in an amount equal to at least $25,000.

 

(b)          If the Seller shall deliver to the Buyer a Transaction Notice that satisfies the requirements of Section 2.02(a), Buyer will notify the Seller prior to the requested Purchase Date of its intent to remit the requested Purchase Price, and the form or forms of the Consideration that will be provided, including (i) the portion of such Purchase Price that will paid in cash, if any (ii) the Note Balance, or increased Note Balance, of any Variable Funding Note, if any and (iii) the increased value of the Owner Trust Certificate, which increase will result from the deemed capital contribution to the Buyer of any portion of the Purchase Price not paid pursuant to clause (i) or (ii) above. If all applicable conditions precedent set forth in Article V have been satisfied on or prior to the Purchase Date, then subject to the foregoing, on the Purchase Date, the Buyer shall deliver the Consideration to the Seller, including remitting any cash portion of the requested Purchase Price identified by the Buyer in Dollars and in immediately available funds to the account specified by the Seller in Schedule 5 to the Base Indenture.

 

(c)          Upon entering into each Transaction hereunder, the Asset Schedule shall be automatically updated to include each of the Assets listed on the Asset Schedule attached to the Transaction Notice.

Section 2.03      Repurchase; Payment of Repurchase Price; Optional Payments.

 

(a)          The Seller hereby promises to (i) repurchase the Purchased Assets and pay the Repurchase Price and all other outstanding Obligations on the related Termination Date, (ii) pay any and all Required Payments on the related MRA Payment Date and (iii) satisfy any Margin Calls in accordance with Section 2.05 (including through the payment of cash, or through the pledging of Pledged Margin Securities or Pledged Eligible Securities).

 

(b)          Without limiting the foregoing, on each MRA Payment Date, the Seller shall sweep all amounts received with respect to MSRs to the Dedicated Account in accordance with Section 6.12 to be applied in accordance with Section 2.07.

 

(c)          Seller may, at its option, elect to make a payment (an “Optional Payment”) to Buyer in respect of any Interim Payment Date or Payment Date for the purpose of reducing the Purchase Price. Such payment shall be made to the Dedicated Account and shall be applied to the outstanding Purchase Price attributable to each Participation Certificate at the direction of the Administrator, or otherwise on a pro rata basis.

 

(d)          If the Buyer intends to use any or all of an Optional Payment to effect a redemption of any portion of a Class of Notes pursuant to Section 13.1 of the Base Indenture, Seller shall contemporaneously pay to the Buyer all accrued and unpaid Price Differential on the amount so redeemed, together with the applicable Specified Call Premium Amounts (as defined in any applicable Indenture Supplement) then due and payable, if any.

 

(e)          If Seller intends to use Eligible Securities to satisfy a Margin Call in accordance with Section 2.05, (i) such Eligible Securities shall be deposited in a Eligible Securities Account and (ii) such Eligible Securities shall comply with the representations and warranties to be agreed upon by the Repo Buyer, the Administrative Agent and the Repo Seller to be set forth on Schedule 1-D.

 

(f)           If Seller intends to use Pledged Margin Securities to satisfy a Margin Call in accordance with Section 2.05, (i) such Pledged Margin Securities shall be deposited in a Pledged Margin Securities Account and (ii) such Pledged Margin Securities shall comply with the requirements set forth in the Base Indenture and with the representations and warranties to be agreed upon by the Repo Buyer, the Administrative Agent and the Repo Seller to be set forth on Schedule 1-E.

 

Section 2.04      Price Differential.

 

(a)          On each MRA Payment Date, the Seller hereby promises to pay to the Buyer all accrued and unpaid Price Differential on the Transactions, as invoiced by the Buyer two (2) Business Days prior to the related MRA Payment Date (the “Price Differential Statement Date”); provided that if the Buyer fails to deliver such statement on the Price Differential Statement Date, on such MRA Payment Date the Seller shall pay the amount which the Seller calculates as the Price Differential due and upon delivery of the statement, the Seller shall remit to the Buyer any shortfall, or the Buyer shall refund to the Seller any excess, in the Price Differential paid. Price Differential shall accrue each day on the Purchase Price at a rate per annum equal to the Pricing Rate.

 

7

 

 

(b)          In addition to the payment of the Price Differential, on each MRA Payment Date, the Seller hereby promises to pay to the Buyer all accrued and unpaid amounts representing Expenses, if any.

 

Section 2.05      Margin Maintenance.

 

(a)          If at any time the aggregate outstanding amount of the Purchase Price exceeds the Asset Base in effect at such time, as determined on each Interim Payment Date (or, on a daily basis, in the event of the delivery of Eligible Securities or pledging of Pledged Margin Securities) after taking into account any Transaction being effected on such date (such excess, a “Margin Deficit”), then the Buyer may by notice to the Seller require the Seller to eliminate the Margin Deficit (such requirement, a “Margin Call”) by (i) making a Margin Call Payment, (ii) if there is no Borrowing Base Deficiency at such time, the reduction of the value of the Owner Trust Certificate, or (iii) in the sole discretion of the Buyer (not to be unreasonably withheld), pledging a Pledged Margin Security to Buyer.

 

(b)          Notice delivered pursuant to Section 2.05(a) may be given by any written or electronic means. With respect to a Margin Call, any notice given before 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on a Business Day shall be met, and the related Margin Call satisfied, no later than 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the following Business Day. With respect to a Margin Call, any notice given after 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on a Business Day shall be met, and the related Margin Call satisfied, no later than 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the second (2nd) Business Day following the date of such notice. The foregoing time requirements for satisfaction of a Margin Call are referred to as the “Margin Deadlines”. The failure of the Buyer, on any one or more occasions, to exercise its rights hereunder, shall not change or alter the terms and conditions to which this Agreement is subject or limit the right of the Buyer to do so at a later date. Each of the Seller and the Buyer agrees that a failure or delay by the Buyer to exercise its rights hereunder shall not limit or waive the Buyer’s rights under this Agreement or otherwise existing by law or in any way create additional rights for the Seller.

 

(c)          In the event that a Margin Deficit exists, the Buyer may retain any funds received by it to which the Seller would otherwise be entitled hereunder, which funds (i) may be held by the Buyer against the related Margin Deficit or (ii) may be applied by the Buyer against the Purchase Price. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Buyer retains the right, in its sole discretion, to make a Margin Call in accordance with the provisions of this Section 2.05.

 

(d)          If the aggregate outstanding amount of the Asset Base exceeds the Purchase Price as determined on each MRA Payment Date (such excess, a “Margin Excess”), then Seller may deliver a Margin Excess Notice to Buyer and request Buyer to deliver additional Consideration in an amount not to exceed the amount of such Margin Excess indicated in such Margin Excess Notice. Seller shall deliver such Margin Excess Notice at least one (1) Business Day prior to the Interim Payment Date on which Seller wishes to receive such amount. If the Margin Excess Notice has been timely provided, the Buyer shall provide Consideration to the Seller in the requested amount on the specified Interim Payment Date, which Consideration shall consist of (i) cash, to the extent Buyer has excess cash or is able to obtain cash by effectuating an increase in the VFN Principal Balance, (ii) release of Eligible Securities or Pledged Margin Securities, (iii) issuance of additional Notes and (iv) otherwise, an increase in the value of the Owner Trust Certificate.

Section 2.06      Payment Procedure. The Seller shall deposit or cause to be deposited all amounts constituting collections, payments and proceeds of Assets (including all fees and proceeds of sale) in the Dedicated Account as set forth in Section 6.12, within two (2) Business Days of receipt thereof or in the case of related liquidation or insurance proceeds, as promptly as reasonably practical following receipt of any related liquidation or insurance proceeds. The Seller shall cause any Subservicer engaged from time to time (if any) to remit directly to the Dedicated Account all amounts that constitute collections, payments and proceeds of Assets owed by such Subservicer to the Seller. The Seller absolutely, unconditionally, and irrevocably, shall make, or shall cause a Subservicer to make, all payments required to be made by the Seller hereunder whether or not sufficient amounts are on deposit in the Dedicated Account.

 

Section 2.07      Net Payments. (a) On each MRA Payment Date, the Seller shall pay all amounts due and owing under Sections 2.03, 2.04 or 2.05; however, prior to the occurrence of an Event of Default, such payments shall be netted against amounts otherwise distributable to the Seller as the holder of the Owner Trust Certificate under the Indenture, and such payment obligation shall be deemed paid and satisfied upon the payment of the Net Payment Amount for such MRA Payment Date.

 

(b)          Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Seller shall be entitled to retain, from payments on, or relating to, the Mortgage Loans, all Ancillary Income, the Base Servicing Fee and the Advance Reimbursement Amounts. Ancillary Income, the Base Servicing Fee and the Advance Reimbursement Amounts shall not be required to be deposited into the Dedicated Account, and shall not be subject to any offset, netting or withdrawal under this Agreement.

 

Section 2.08      Recourse. Notwithstanding anything else to the contrary contained or implied herein or in any other Program Agreement, the Buyer shall have full, unlimited recourse against the Seller and the Guarantor and their respective assets in order to satisfy the Obligations.

 

Section 2.09      Taxes. (a) Any and all payments by the Seller or the Guarantor under or in respect of this Agreement or any other Program Agreements to which the Seller or the Guarantor is a party shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for or on account of, any and all present or future taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings, and all liabilities (including penalties, interest and additions to tax) with respect thereto, whether now or hereafter imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any taxation authority or other Governmental Authority (collectively, “Taxes”), unless required by law. If the Seller or the Guarantor shall be required under any applicable Requirement of Law to deduct or withhold any Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable under or in respect of this Agreement or any of the other Program Agreements to the Buyer (including for purposes of this Section 2.09, any assignee, successor or participant), (i) the Seller or the Guarantor, as applicable, shall make all such deductions and withholdings in respect of Taxes, (ii) the Seller or the Guarantor, as applicable, shall pay the full amount deducted or withheld in respect of Taxes to the relevant taxation authority or other Governmental Authority in accordance with any applicable Requirement of Law, and (iii) the sum payable by the Seller or the Guarantor, as applicable, shall be increased as may be necessary so that after the Seller or the Guarantor, as applicable, has made all required deductions and withholdings (including deductions and withholdings applicable to additional amounts payable under this Section 2.09), such Buyer receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made in respect of Non-Excluded Taxes. For purposes of this Agreement, the term “Non-Excluded Taxes” means Taxes other than, in the case of the Buyer, Taxes that are imposed on its overall net income (and franchise taxes imposed in lieu thereof) by the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Buyer is organized, or any political subdivision thereof, unless such Taxes are imposed as a result of the Buyer having executed, delivered or performed its obligations or received payments under, or enforced, this Agreement or any of the other Program Agreements (in which case such Taxes will be treated as Non-Excluded Taxes).

 

9

 

 

(b)          In addition, the Seller and the Guarantor hereby agree to pay any present or future stamp, recording, documentary, excise, property or value-added taxes, or similar taxes, charges or levies that arise from any payment made under or in respect of this Agreement or any other Program Agreement or from the execution, delivery or registration of, any performance under, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement or any other Program Agreement (collectively, “Other Taxes”).

 

(c)          The Seller and the Guarantor hereby agree to indemnify the Buyer for, and to hold it harmless against, the full amount of Non-Excluded Taxes and Other Taxes, and the full amount of Taxes of any kind imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable by the Seller or the Guarantor, as applicable, under this Section 2.09 imposed on or paid by such Buyer and any liability (including penalties, additions to tax, interest and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto. The indemnity by the Seller and the Guarantor provided for in this Section 2.09 shall apply and be made whether or not the Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes for which indemnification hereunder is sought have been correctly or legally asserted. Amounts payable by the Seller and the Guarantor under the indemnity set forth in this Section 2.09(c) shall be paid within ten (10) days from the date on which the Buyer makes written demand therefor.

 

(d)          Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of the Seller hereunder, the agreements and obligations of the Seller contained in this Section 2.09 shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the other Program Agreements. Nothing contained in this Section 2.09 shall require any Buyer to make available any of its tax returns or any other information that it deems to be confidential or proprietary.

 

Section 2.10      Indemnity. The Seller agrees to indemnify the Buyer and to hold the Buyer harmless from any loss or expense that the Buyer may sustain or incur as a consequence of (i) a default by the Seller in payment when due of the Repurchase Price, Required Payment, Margin Deficit or Price Differential or (ii) a default by the Seller in making any prepayment of Repurchase Price after the Seller has given a notice thereof in accordance with Section 2.03.

 

Section 2.11      Dedicated Account.

 

Amounts received on account of MSRs and Portfolio Excess Spread (excluding Ancillary Income, Base Servicing Fee and Advance Reimbursement Amounts) and retained by the Seller pursuant to the related Servicing Contract or Participation Agreement, as the case may be, shall, subject to Section 6.12, promptly, in any event within two (2) Business Days after receipt, be deposited in the Dedicated Account. Prior to an Event of Default, funds deposited in the Dedicated Account (including any interest paid on such funds) may only be used in accordance with Section 6.12. On or after the occurrence of an Event of Default, amounts on deposit in the Dedicated Account may only be used in accordance with Section 6.12 and only to pay the Obligations hereunder. Upon the Termination Date and the payment of all amounts due by the Seller hereunder, all amounts on deposit in the Dedicated Account shall be remitted to the Seller.

 

10

 

 

Section 2.12      Additional Participation Agreements and Participation Certificates.

 

In the event that the Seller wishes to enter into a Transaction with respect to a Participation Agreement or Participation Certificate not listed on Schedule 2 hereto, Seller shall deliver a written request, substantially in the form of Exhibit B hereto. Upon receipt of the request and filing of a UCC-3 amendment adding the additional Participation Agreement or Participation Certificate, Schedule 2 shall be automatically updated to include each additional Participation Agreement and Participation Certificate identified thereon, and the Asset Schedule shall also be updated.

 

Section 2.13      Termination. (a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, if a Seller Termination Option occurs, the Seller may, upon five (5) Business Days’ prior notice of such event, terminate this Agreement and the Termination Date shall be deemed to have occurred (upon the expiration of the five (5) Business Days).

 

(b)          In the event that a Seller Termination Option as described in clause (a) of the definition thereof has occurred and the Seller has notified the Buyer of its option to terminate this Agreement, the Buyer shall have the right to withdraw such request for payment within three (3) Business Days of the Seller’s notice of its exercise of the Seller Termination Option and the Seller shall no longer have the right to terminate this Agreement.

 

(c)          The Seller shall remain responsible for all costs incurred by the Buyer pursuant to Section 2.09 and any cost or expenses incurred by the Buyer under the Indenture.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Buyer may terminate a Participation Interest in accordance with the applicable Participation Agreement.

The Buyer shall have the right upon any such public sale or sales, and, to the extent permitted by law, upon any such private sale or sales, to purchase the whole or any part of the Repurchase Assets so sold, free of any right or equity of redemption in the Seller, which right or equity is hereby waived or released. The Seller further agrees, at the Buyer’s request, to assemble the Repurchase Assets and make them available to the Buyer at places which the Buyer shall reasonably select, whether at the Seller’s premises or elsewhere. The Buyer shall apply the net proceeds of any such collection, recovery, receipt, appropriation, realization or sale, after deducting all reasonable (under the circumstances) out-of-pocket costs and expenses of every kind actually incurred therein or incidental to the care or safekeeping of any of the Repurchase Assets or in any way relating to the Repurchase Assets or the rights of the Buyer hereunder, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements, to the payment in whole or in part of the Obligations, in such order as the Buyer may elect, and only after such application and after the payment by the Buyer of any other amount required or permitted by any provision of law, including Section 9-615 of the Uniform Commercial Code, need the Buyer account for the surplus, if any, to the Seller. To the extent permitted by Applicable Law, the Seller waives all claims, damages and demands it may acquire against the Buyer arising out of the exercise by the Buyer of any of its rights hereunder, other than those claims, damages and demands arising from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Buyer. If any notice of a proposed sale or other disposition of Repurchase Assets shall be required by law, such notice shall be deemed reasonable and proper if given at least ten (10) days before such sale or other disposition. The Seller shall remain liable for any deficiency (plus accrued interest thereon as contemplated herein) if the proceeds of any sale or other disposition of the Repurchase Assets are insufficient to pay the Obligations and the fees and disbursements in amounts reasonable under the circumstances, of any attorneys employed by the Buyer to collect such deficiency. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any of the other Program Agreements, the remedies set forth in this Section 4.09 shall be subject to the applicable Servicing Contracts and the Acknowledgment Agreement entered into with Fannie Mae.

Neither the Buyer nor any of its directors, officers or employees shall be liable for failure to demand, collect or realize upon all or any part of the Repurchase Assets or for any delay in doing so or shall be under any obligation to sell or otherwise dispose of any Repurchase Assets upon the request of the Seller or otherwise.

Whether or not such damages are related to a claim that is subject to such waiver and whether or not such waiver is effective, no Buyer Party shall have any liability with respect to, and the Seller hereby waives, releases and agrees not to sue upon any claim for, any special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages suffered by the Seller in connection with, arising out of, or in any way related to the transactions contemplated or the relationship established by this Agreement, the other loan documents or any other agreement entered into in connection herewith or therewith or any act, omission or event occurring in connection herewith or therewith, unless it is determined by a judgment of a court that is binding on Buyer (which judgment shall be final and not subject to review on appeal), that such damages were the result of acts or omissions on the part of a Buyer Party, as applicable, constituting willful misconduct or gross negligence.

Each provision and agreement herein shall be treated as separate and independent from any other provision or agreement herein and shall be enforceable notwithstanding the unenforceability of any such other provision or agreement.

Section 10.08      Periodic Due Diligence Review. The Seller and the Guarantor acknowledge that the Buyer has the right to perform continuing due diligence reviews with respect to the Seller and the Guarantor and the Assets, for purposes of verifying compliance with the representations, warranties and specifications made hereunder, or otherwise, and the Seller and the Guarantor agree that upon reasonable (but no less than five (5) Business Days’) prior notice unless an Event of Default shall have occurred, in which case no notice is required, to the Seller or the Guarantor, the Buyer or its authorized representatives will be permitted during normal business hours, and in a manner that does not unreasonably interfere with the ordinary conduct of the Seller’s or the Guarantor’s business, to examine, inspect, and make copies and extracts of, any and all documents, records, agreements, instruments or information relating to such Assets in the possession or under the control of the Seller or the Guarantor. The Seller and the Guarantor also shall make available to the Buyer a knowledgeable financial or accounting officer for the purpose of answering questions respecting the Assets. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Seller and the Guarantor acknowledge that the Buyer may enter into a Transaction related to any Purchased Assets from the Seller based solely upon the information provided by the Seller to the Buyer in the Asset Schedule and the representations, warranties and covenants contained herein, and that the Buyer, at its option, has the right at any time to conduct a partial or complete due diligence review on some or all of the Assets related to a Transaction. The Seller and the Guarantor agree to cooperate with the Buyer and any third party underwriter in connection with such underwriting, including, providing the Buyer and any third party underwriter with access to any and all documents, records, agreements, instruments or information relating to such Purchased Assets in the possession, or under the control, of the Seller or the Guarantor.

 

Section 10.09      Hypothecation or Pledge of Repurchase Assets. Subject to the applicable Acknowledgment Agreement, the Buyer shall have free and unrestricted use of all Repurchase Assets and nothing in this Agreement shall preclude the Buyer from engaging in repurchase transactions with all or a portion of the Repurchase Assets or otherwise pledging, repledging, transferring, hypothecating, or rehypothecating all or a portion of the Repurchase Assets other than with respect to a participating interest consisting of a pro rata interest in all payments due to Buyer under this Agreement and prior to an Event of Default Buyer receives an opinion of a nationally recognized tax counsel experienced in such matters that such sale will not result in the Issuer being subject to tax on its net income as an association (or publicly traded partnership) taxable as a corporation or a taxable mortgage pool taxable as a corporation, each for U.S. federal income tax purposes.

 

Section 10.10      Non-Confidentiality of Tax Treatment. (a) This Agreement and its terms, provisions, supplements and amendments, and notices hereunder, are proprietary to the Buyer or the Seller and the Guarantor, as applicable, and shall be held by each party hereto, as applicable in strict confidence and shall not be disclosed to any third party without the written consent of the Buyer (at the written direction of the Administrative Agent), the Seller or the Guarantor, as applicable, except for (i) disclosure to the Buyer’s, the Seller’s or the Guarantor’s direct and indirect Affiliates and Subsidiaries, attorneys or accountants, but only to the extent such disclosure is necessary and such parties agree to hold all information in strict confidence, (ii) disclosure to the parties to the Indenture, including noteholders and investors related thereto, but only to the extent such disclosure is necessary and such parties agree to hold all information in strict confidence, or (iii) disclosure required by law, rule, regulation or order of a court or other regulatory body. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary contained herein or in any other Program Agreements, the parties hereto may disclose to any and all Persons, without limitation of any kind, the federal, state and local tax treatment of the Transactions, any fact relevant to understanding the federal, state and local tax treatment of the Transactions, and all materials of any kind (including opinions or other tax analyses) relating to such federal, state and local tax treatment and that may be relevant to understanding such tax treatment; provided that the Seller may not disclose the name of or identifying information with respect to the Buyer or any pricing terms (including the Pricing Rate, Purchase Price Percentage and Purchase Price) or other nonpublic business or financial information (including any sublimits and financial covenants) that is unrelated to the federal, state and local tax treatment of the Transactions and is not relevant to understanding the federal, state and local tax treatment of the Transactions, without the prior written consent of the Buyer (at the written direction of the Administrative Agent).

 

37

 

 

(b)          Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Seller shall comply with all applicable local, state and federal laws, including all privacy and data protection law, rules and regulations that are applicable to the Repurchase Assets and/or any applicable terms of this Agreement (the “Confidential Information”). The Seller understands that the Confidential Information may contain “nonpublic personal information”, as that term is defined in Section 509(4) of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (the “GLB Act”), and the Seller agrees to maintain such nonpublic personal information that it receives hereunder in accordance with the GLB Act and other applicable federal and state privacy laws. The Seller shall implement such physical and other security measures as shall be necessary to (a) ensure the security and confidentiality of the “nonpublic personal information” of the “customers” and “consumers” (as those terms are defined in the GLB Act) of the Buyer, the Administrative Agent or any Affiliate of the Administrative Agent which the Seller holds, (b) protect against any threats or hazards to the security and integrity of such nonpublic personal information, and (c) protect against any unauthorized access to or use of such nonpublic personal information. The Seller represents and warrants that it has implemented appropriate measures to meet the objectives of Section 501(b) of the GLB Act and of the applicable standards adopted pursuant thereto, as now or hereafter in effect. Upon request, the Seller will provide evidence reasonably satisfactory to allow the Buyer to confirm that the providing party has satisfied its obligations as required under this section. Without limitation, this may include the Buyer’s review of audits, summaries of test results, and other equivalent evaluations of the Seller. The Seller shall notify the Buyer promptly following discovery of any breach or compromise of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of nonpublic personal information of the customers and consumers of the Buyer, the Administrative Agent or any Affiliate of the Administrative Agent provided directly to the Seller by the Buyer or the Administrative Agent or an Affiliate of the Administrative Agent. The Seller shall provide such notice to the Buyer by personal delivery, by facsimile with confirmation of receipt, or by overnight courier with confirmation of receipt to the applicable requesting individual.

 

Section 10.11      Set-off. In addition to any rights and remedies of the Buyer hereunder and by law, the Buyer shall have the right, without prior notice to the Seller or the Guarantor, any such notice being expressly waived by the Seller and the Guarantor to the extent permitted by Applicable Law to set-off and appropriate and apply against any Obligation from the Seller, the Guarantor or any Affiliate thereof to the Buyer, the Administrative Agent or any Affiliate of the Administrative Agent any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final), in any currency, and any other obligation (including to return funds to the Seller), credits, indebtedness or claims, in any currency, in each case whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, matured or unmatured, at any time held or owing by or due from the Buyer, the Administrative Agent or any Affiliate of the Administrative Agent to or for the credit or the account of the Seller, the Guarantor or any Affiliate thereof. The Buyer agrees promptly to notify the Seller or the Guarantor after any such set off and application made by the Buyer; provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set off and application.

 

38

 

 

Section 10.12      Intent.

 

(a)          The parties recognize that this Agreement is a “master netting agreement” as that term is defined in Section 101 of the Bankruptcy Code, and that this Agreement and each Transaction hereunder is a “securities contract” as that term is defined in Section 741 of the Bankruptcy Code, and that all payments hereunder are deemed “margin payments” or “settlement payments” as defined in the Bankruptcy Code.

 

(b)          It is understood that either party’s right to liquidate Purchased Assets delivered to it in connection with Transactions hereunder or to exercise any other remedies pursuant to Section 7.03 is a contractual right to liquidate, terminate or accelerate such Transaction as described in Section 555 and Section 561 of the Bankruptcy Code.

 

(c)          The parties agree and acknowledge that if a party hereto is an “insured depository institution,” as such term is defined in the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (“FDIA”), then each Transaction hereunder is a “qualified financial contract,” as that term is defined in FDIA and any rules, orders or policy statements thereunder (except insofar as the type of assets subject to such Transaction would render such definition inapplicable).

 

(d)          It is understood that this Agreement constitutes a “netting contract” as defined in and subject to Title IV of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 (“FDICIA”) and each payment entitlement and payment obligation under any Transaction hereunder shall constitute a “covered contractual payment entitlement” or “covered contractual payment obligation”, respectively, as defined in and subject to FDICIA (except insofar as one or both of the parties is not a “financial institution” as that term is defined in FDICIA).

 

(e)          This Agreement is intended to be a “securities contract,” within the meaning of Section 555 of the Bankruptcy Code, and a “master netting agreement,” within the meaning of Section 561 under the Bankruptcy Code. It is the intention of the parties that, for U.S. federal income tax purposes and for accounting purposes, each Transaction constitutes a financing, and that Seller be (except to the extent that Buyer shall have exercised its remedies following an Event of Default) the owner of the Purchased Assets for such purposes. Unless prohibited by applicable law, Seller and Buyer shall treat the Transactions as described in the preceding sentence (including on any and all filings with any U.S. federal, state, or local taxing authority and agree not to take any action inconsistent with such treatment).

 

Section 10.13      Third Party Beneficiaries. (a) The Administrative Agent, the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee shall be express third party beneficiaries of this Agreement.

 

39

 

 

Section 10.14     Owner Trustee Limitation of Liability. It is expressly understood and agreed by the parties hereto that (a) this Agreement is executed and delivered by WSFS, not individually or personally but solely as trustee of the Issuer, in the exercise of the powers and authority conferred and vested in it, (b) each of the representations, warranties, undertakings and agreements herein made on the part of the Issuer is made and intended not as personal representations, warranties, undertakings and agreements by WSFS but is made and intended for the purpose of binding only the Issuer, (c) nothing herein contained shall be construed as creating any liability on WSFS, individually or personally, to perform any covenant either expressed or implied contained herein, all such liability, if any, being expressly waived by the parties hereto and by any Person claiming by, through or under the parties hereto, (d) WSFS has made no investigation as to the accuracy or completeness of any representations or warranties made by the Issuer in this Agreement and (e) under no circumstances shall WSFS be personally liable for the payment of any indebtedness or expenses of the Issuer or be liable for the breach or failure of any obligation, representation, warranty or covenant made or undertaken by the Issuer under this Agreement or any other related documents.

 

Section 10.15     Actions and Discretion of the Buyer. Any provision providing for the exercise of any action or discretion by Buyer shall be exercised by the Indenture Trustee at the written direction of either 100% of the VFN Noteholders or the Majority Noteholders of all Outstanding Notes. To the extent there are conflicting directions between 100% of the VFN Noteholders and the Majority Noteholders, the Indenture Trustee will take its direction from 100% of the VFN Noteholders. In addition, and notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement to the contrary, any approvals, consents, votes or other rights exercisable by the Buyer under this Agreement shall be exercised by the Indenture Trustee on behalf of Noteholders.

The Buyer’s security interest in such Purchased Assets, the Related Security and the Collections with respect thereto, is free and clear of any Lien, except as provided herein. The Seller has not and will not prior to the time of the pledge of any such interest to the Buyer have sold, pledged, assigned, transferred or subjected and will not thereafter sell, pledge, assign, transfer or subject to a Lien any of such Purchased Assets, the Related Security or the Collections other than in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the other Program Agreements.

The representations and warranties shall be limited to Participation Certificates that are acquired on or after the date of this Agreement. For purposes of this Schedule 1-B and the representations and warranties set forth herein, a breach of a representation or warranty shall be deemed to have been cured with respect to the Participation Certificates if and when the Seller has taken or caused to be taken action such that the event, circumstance or condition that gave rise to such breach no longer adversely affects such Participation Certificates.

(v)            The Participation Agreement is genuine, and is the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Seller enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as such enforcement may be affected by bankruptcy, by other insolvency laws or by general principles of equity.
