SECTION 2.01                      Conveyance of Receivables. In consideration of WOAR’s delivery to or upon the order of World Omni of the Purchase Price (as defined in Section 2.02 below), World Omni does hereby sell, transfer, assign, set over and otherwise convey to WOAR, without recourse (subject to the obligations of World Omni herein), on the Closing Date (the “Purchase Date”) pursuant to a written assignment substantially in the form of Exhibit A (the “RPA Assignment”), all right, title and interest of World Omni, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, and wherever located, in and to the following (but none of the obligations of World Omni with respect to):

 

(a)   the Receivables identified in the Schedule of Receivables to the RPA Assignment (all of which are identified in World Omni’s computer files by a code indicating the Receivables are owned by the Trust and pledged to the Indenture Trustee) and all monies received thereon after the Cutoff Date;

 

(b)   the security interests in, and the liens on, the Financed Vehicles granted by Obligors in connection with the Receivables identified in the RPA Assignment and any other interest of World Omni in the Financed Vehicles;

 

(c)   any proceeds with respect to the Receivables identified in the RPA Assignment from claims on any physical damage, credit life or disability insurance policies covering the Financed Vehicles or Obligors;

 

(d)   any Financed Vehicle that shall have secured a Receivable identified in the RPA Assignment and shall have been acquired by or on behalf of World Omni, WOAR, or, upon the assignment contemplated by the Sale and Servicing Agreement, the Servicer or the Trust;

 

(e)   all “accounts,” “chattel paper,” “general intangibles” and “promissory notes” (as such terms are defined in the Uniform Commercial Code as from time to time in effect) constituting or relating to the foregoing; and

 

(f)    the proceeds of any and all of the foregoing; provided, however, that the foregoing items (a) through (f) shall not include the Purchase Price.

 

SECTION 2.02                      Purchase Price. In consideration for the purchase of the Receivables and related assets pursuant to Section 2.01 hereof, WOAR shall pay to World Omni on the Closing Date an amount equal to the aggregate Starting Principal Balances for such Receivables (with respect to such Receivables, the “Purchase Price”) and World Omni shall execute and deliver to WOAR the RPA Assignment with respect to such Receivables and related assets.

However, in the event that such conveyance is deemed to be a pledge to secure a loan (in spite of the express intent of the parties hereto that such conveyance constitutes, and shall be construed and treated for all purposes, other than for tax purposes, as a true and complete sale), World Omni hereby grants to WOAR a first priority perfected security interest in all of World Omni’s right, title and interest in, to and under the Receivables identified in the RPA Assignment and other property specified in Section 2.01 hereof whether now existing or hereafter created to secure the loan deemed to be made in connection with such pledge and, in such event, this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under applicable law.

 

SECTION 2.04                      The Closing. The sale and purchase of the Receivables shall take place at a closing at a place, on a date and at a time mutually agreeable to World Omni and WOAR and may occur simultaneously with the closing of any related transactions contemplated by (a) the Sale and Servicing Agreement and (b) the Indenture.
