Item 1.01 - Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On November 30, 2016, T-Mobile US, Inc. (the “Company”) amended the terms of its wireless service receivable revolving securitization facility (the “Airtime Receivables Facility”) to (i) increase the maximum aggregate purchase commitment thereunder from $750 million to $950 million and (ii) extend the revolving period, which was scheduled to terminate on March 13, 2017, to March 12, 2018.

Under the Airtime Receivables Facility, certain wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company (collectively, the “Originators”) sell and/or contribute certain of their wireless service receivables to T-Mobile PCS Holdings LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“T-Mobile PCS Holdings”), pursuant to that certain Receivables Sale and Conveyancing Agreement, dated as of February 26, 2014 (as amended, the “Conveyancing Agreement”), among the Originators and T-Mobile PCS Holdings.

Immediately after acquiring such receivables, T-Mobile PCS Holdings sells and/or contributes such receivables to T-Mobile Airtime Funding LLC, a special purpose entity and wholly-owned subsidiary of T-Mobile PCS Holdings (“T-Mobile Funding”), pursuant to that certain Receivables Sale and Contribution Agreement, dated as of February 26, 2014, (as amended, the “Contribution Agreement”), between T-Mobile PCS Holdings and T-Mobile Funding.

Immediately after acquiring such receivables, T-Mobile Funding sells such receivables to Billing Gate One LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Billing Gate One”), pursuant to that certain Second Amended and Restated Master Receivables Purchase Agreement, dated as of November 30, 2016 (the “Master Receivables Purchase Agreement”), among, T-Mobile Funding, as funding seller, Billing Gate One, as purchaser, Landesbank Hessen-Thüringen Girozentrale, as bank purchasing agent, The Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd., as bank collection agent, T-Mobile PCS Holdings, as servicer, and the Company, as performance guarantor.

Immediately after acquiring such receivables, Billing Gate One sells such receivables to a bank purchasing group pursuant to that certain Second Amended and Restated Onward Receivables Purchase Agreement, dated as of November 30, 2016, among Billing Gate One, as seller, the bank purchasing agent, the bank collection agent and certain bank purchasers party thereto from time to time.

Billing Gate One has a contractual right of recourse against T-Mobile Funding with respect to transfers of the receivables to Billing Gate One under the Master Receivables Purchase Agreement, pursuant to which T-Mobile Funding is required to repurchase certain aged receivables from Billing Gate One and to pay additional amounts in the event of ineligible receivables and certain receivable write-off activity. In addition, T-Mobile Funding has continuing involvement with the sold receivables as it may be responsible for absorbing additional credit losses pursuant to the Master Receivables Purchase Agreement.

T-Mobile PCS Holdings will service the receivables in exchange for a monthly servicing fee. The Company will provide a performance guarantee of certain obligations of T-Mobile PCS Holdings, in its capacity as servicer under the Master Receivables Purchase Agreement, and the Originators under the Conveyancing Agreement.

The Airtime Receivables Facility contains representations and warranties, affirmative and negative covenants, and events of default that are similar to comparable securitization transactions.

While the transaction is treated as a sale for accounting and legal purposes, the Company will not treat the transaction as a sale for federal and state tax purposes.

This summary of the amendment to the Airtime Receivables Facility does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Master Receivables Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1.

If, notwithstanding such intent, any Purchased Receivables or Related Rights are determined to be property of the Funding Seller’s estate and the conveyance of such property hereunder shall be characterized as a loan secured by such property (any of the foregoing being referred to herein as a “Recharacterization”), then (i) this Agreement also shall be deemed to be, and hereby is, a “security agreement” within the meaning of the UCC, and (ii) the conveyance by the Funding Seller provided for in this Agreement shall be deemed to be a grant by the Funding Seller to the Purchaser, and the Funding Seller hereby grants to the Purchaser, a security interest in, to and under all of the Funding Seller’s right, title and interest in, to and under the Purchased Receivables and Related Rights conveyed by the Funding Seller to the Purchaser, hereunder, whether now or hereafter existing or created, to secure (1) the rights of the Purchaser hereunder, (2) a loan by the Purchaser to the Funding Seller in the amount of the Funded Amount from time to time and (3) without limiting any of the foregoing, the payment and performance of the obligations (whether monetary or


29



otherwise) from time to time owing by the Funding Seller to the Purchaser hereunder. The Funding Seller shall take such actions as may be necessary to ensure that a security interest in such Purchased Receivables will be a perfected security interest of first priority in favor of the Purchaser under the UCC and all other applicable law and shall be maintained as such throughout the term of this Agreement. If a Recharacterization were to occur, after the occurrence of any Termination Event, the Purchaser and its permitted assignees (including the Bank Collections Agent, to the extent contemplated by the Onward Receivables Purchase Agreement) shall have, in addition to the rights and remedies contemplated by this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents, all other rights and remedies against the Funding Seller and the Originators provided to a secured creditor under the UCC and other applicable law, and the parties hereto agree that each remittance of Collections to the Purchaser hereunder shall be, or have been, in payment of debt incurred by the Funding Seller in the ordinary course of its business.
2.11
Tax Treatment. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Funding Seller and the Purchaser agree that, except as otherwise required by applicable law, the transfer of the Purchased Receivables and Related Rights by the Funding Seller to the Purchaser shall be treated as a loan to the Funding Seller of the proceeds of such transfer for U.S. federal income tax purposes and state or local income tax and transactional tax purposes.
2.12
Records. The Funding Seller shall mark its accounting records regarding the Purchased Receivables conveyed by it hereunder to indicate the sale, transfer, set-off and assignment of the Purchased Receivables to the Purchaser.
2.13
Increase in Funding Limit. The Funding Seller may, at any time and from time to time, request in writing, with a copy to each of the Purchasing Entities, that the Bank Purchasers increase the Funding Limit (a “Funding Limit Increase Request”), provided that:
(a)
any such requested increase shall be in an amount not less than $20,000,000 and would not, if effected, cause the Funding Limit to exceed $950,000,000;
(b)
each Bank Purchaser shall make a determination whether or not to accept any request to increase the Funding Limit and shall notify the Funding Seller and the other Purchasing Entities in writing of such determination within thirty (30) Business Days of receipt of a Funding Limit Increase Request; and
(c)
if any Bank Purchaser fails to so notify the Funding Seller or the Bank Purchasing Agent, such Bank Purchaser shall be deemed to have refused to consent to such Funding Limit Increase Request.
2.14
Decrease in Funding Limit. The Funding Seller may, at any time and from time to time, request in writing, with a copy to each of the Purchasing Entities, that the Bank Purchasers decrease the Funding Limit (a “Funding Limit Decrease Request”); provided that no such requested decrease shall be in an amount less than $10,000,000 and the aggregate of all of such requested decreases shall not exceed 20% of the greatest Funding Limit at any time since the Closing Date. Any such decrease shall take effect on the Settlement Date following such Funding Limit Decrease Request.
3.
Servicing of Purchased Receivables
3.1
Appointment of Servicer. The servicing, administration and collection of the Purchased Receivables shall be conducted by the Servicer so designated hereunder from time to time. Until either of the Co-Agents gives prior notice to the Funding Seller and the other Co-Agent of the designation of a new Servicer in accordance with the terms hereof, T-Mobile PCS Holdings is hereby designated as, and hereby agrees to


30



perform the duties and obligations of, the Servicer pursuant to the terms hereof. Each of (i) the Bank Collections Agent, at any time after the occurrence of a Servicer Termination Event, and (ii) the Bank Purchasing Agent, following receipt by the Funding Seller of three months’ prior written notice of the Bank Purchasing Agent’s election to designate a new Servicer (an event under this clause (ii), a “Servicer Replacement Event”), may designate as Servicer any Person (including, in each case, either of the Co-Agents) to succeed T-Mobile PCS Holdings or any successor Servicer, if such Person shall consent and agree to the terms hereof, and so long as such Person is not a Competitor. The Servicer may subcontract with an Affiliate of the Servicer for the servicing, administration or collection of the Purchased Receivables. Any such subcontract shall not affect the Servicer’s liability for performance of its duties and obligations pursuant to the terms hereof. Any termination of the Servicer shall also terminate such subcontract.
3.2
Servicing of Receivables; Standard of Care.
(a)
The Servicer shall take or cause to be taken all such actions as may be necessary or advisable to collect each Purchased Receivable from time to time, all in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations, with reasonable care and diligence, and in accordance with the Credit and Collection Policy. The Funding Seller and the Purchaser hereby appoint the Servicer, from time to time designated pursuant to Section 3.1, as agent for themselves to enforce their respective rights and interests in the Purchased Receivables and the Related Rights. In performing its duties as Servicer, the Servicer shall exercise the same care and apply the same policies as it would exercise and apply if it owned such Purchased Receivables.
(b)
If no Termination Event shall have occurred and be continuing, the Servicer, may, in accordance with the Credit and Collection Policy, extend the maturity or adjust the Outstanding Balance or otherwise modify the payment terms of any Purchased Receivable as it deems appropriate; provided that such modification shall not (i) modify or alter the status of any Purchased Receivable as an Aged Receivable or Delinquent Receivable or (ii) limit the rights of the Purchaser, the Bank Collections Agent or the Bank Purchasing Agent. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, a Purchased Receivable which has become an EPS Receivable shall not be considered an Aged Receivable or a Delinquent Receivable for purposes of this Agreement. The Servicer shall not permit any Purchased Receivable to become an EPS Receivable if, during any Collection Period, the aggregate Nominal Value of Purchased Receivables that become EPS Receivables during such Collection Period would exceed $10,000,000.
(c)
The Servicer shall, as soon as practicable following receipt, turn over to the owner thereof any cash collections or other cash proceeds received with respect to receivables not constituting Purchased Receivables.
(d)
The Funding Seller, the Initial Purchaser and the Originators shall perform their respective obligations under the Contracts related to the Purchased Receivables to the same extent as if Purchased Receivables had not been sold and the exercise by the Purchaser of its rights under this Agreement shall not release the Servicer, any Originator, the Initial Purchaser or the Funding Seller from any of their duties or obligations with respect to any Purchased Receivables or related Contracts. The Purchaser shall have no obligation or liability with respect to any Purchased Receivables or related Contracts, nor shall it be obligated to perform the obligations of the Funding Seller, the Initial Purchaser or the Originators thereunder.
(e)
Subject to Section 3.2(b), the Servicer shall not, without the prior written consent of the Bank Purchasing Agent, make any change to its Credit and Collection Policy that would have a material adverse effect on the Bank Purchasers or the credit quality of the Purchased Receivables.

3.4
Cooperation of the Funding Seller, the Initial Purchaser, and the Originators. The Funding Seller will, and will cause each of the Initial Purchaser and the Originators to, from time to time, at its own expense, promptly execute and deliver all further instruments and documents and take all further actions that may be reasonably necessary or desirable, or that the Bank Collections Agent may reasonably request, to perfect, protect or more fully evidence the transfers and/or ownership of the Purchased Receivables under the Transaction Documents, or to enable the Purchaser to exercise and enforce its rights and remedies hereunder.

The Bank Collections Agent is authorized at any time after the occurrence of a Termination Event to deliver to the Collection Account Bank the notice of effectiveness provided for in the Account Control Agreement.

(i)
if the Funding Seller or any other Person shall be required to deduct any Indemnified Taxes from such payments, then (1) the sum payable shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 4.7) such Purchasing Entity receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (2) the Funding Seller or such Person shall make such deductions, and (3) the Funding Seller or such Person shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law; and

Imminent Write-Offs; EPS Receivables.

Aged Receivables Repurchases. In addition to the foregoing, unless the Servicer at any time shall have failed to pay the Required Amount into the Collection Account in accordance with Section 2.6(c), during each Collection Period, on each Business Day that shall occur during such Collection Period, the Funding Seller shall repurchase from the Purchaser each Purchased Receivable that shall have become an Aged Receivable, it being agreed and understood (i) that the repurchase thereof shall be settled on the first Settlement Date to occur after the end of such Collection Period in accordance with the following provisions of this Section 5.1(b) and (ii) that, notwithstanding any of the foregoing, at any time, the Funding Seller may notify each of the Purchasing Entities in writing that, for any Batch, the Funding Seller shall repurchase Aged Receivables pursuant to this Section 5.1 only to the extent that the aggregate Outstanding Balance of all of the Aged Receivables from such Batch repurchased by the Funding Seller during the term of this Agreement would not exceed 10.00% of the related Batch Receivables Amount, which limitation of repurchases shall take effect on the first Settlement Date to occur after the end of the Collection Period during which such notification was given.

the aggregate Outstanding Balance of all of the repurchased Aged Receivables included in such Batch; and (ii) shall be paid on the Settlement Date on which their repurchase is to occur in accordance with this Section 5.1(b) by requiring the Funding Seller to pay to the Purchaser an amount equal to the aggregate amount of all of such repurchase prices, which amount shall be deemed to have been paid by requiring the Purchaser to reduce the Mandatory Repurchase Reserve Payment Amount for such Settlement Date by a corresponding amount, it being understood between the parties that such reduction may result in a negative Mandatory Repurchase Reserve Payment Amount.
(c)
All of the transfers and repurchases of Receivables contemplated by Sections 5.1(a) and 5.1(b) shall occur without recourse to, and without warranty of any kind made or deemed to have been made by, the Purchaser, and all representations and warranties are hereby expressly disclaimed. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, the Servicer shall continue to monitor the status of all of the Receivables transferred back to the Funding Seller pursuant to Section 5.1(a) above and all of the Aged Receivables repurchased by the Funding Seller pursuant to Section 5.1(b) above in order to determine if and when such Receivables become Written-Off Receivables and to identify and report to the Funding Seller and each of the Purchasing Entities any Recoveries thereon.
5.2
Order of Repurchase. The Servicer shall designate the order in which Purchased Receivables (which will become Written-Off Receivables or are Aged Receivables) are to be transferred back during a Collection Period in a notice delivered to the Purchaser and the Funding Seller. The Purchaser and the Funding Seller acknowledge initial receipt of such notice.

5.5
Revision of Allocation Levels.
(a)
In the event that the Discount Ledger Balance exceeds 2.00% of the Maximum Sales Amount on any Settlement Date (after giving effect to any adjustments to the Discount Ledger Balance on such Settlement Date), upon notice by the Funding Seller to the Bank Purchasing Agent and the Bank Purchasers on such Settlement Date, the Discount Rate shall be decreased to a percentage determined by the Funding Seller, but not less than 0.00%, to reflect such change in credit quality, and the Level 4 Reserve Percentage shall be increased by 1.25 times the reduction in the Discount Rate. Such adjustment shall be prospective in nature and shall only apply to succeeding Collection Periods after the adjustment is made. The notice described in this Section 5.5(a) may be issued more than once.


44



(b)
If the Discount Ledger Balance is less than 1.75% of the Maximum Sales Amount on any Settlement Date (after giving effect to any adjustments to the Discount Ledger Balance on such Settlement Date), upon notice by the Funding Seller to the Bank Purchasing Agent and the Bank Purchasers on such Settlement Date, the Discount Rate shall be increased to a percentage determined by the Funding Seller, and the Level 4 Reserve Percentage shall be decreased by an amount equal to 1.25 multiplied by such increase in the Discount Rate; provided that the Level 4 Reserve Percentage for any Settlement Date and any Batch shall not be less than the numerical percentage prescribed by the definition of the term “Level 4 Reserve Percentage” for such Settlement Date and such Batch without giving effect to any increase or decrease to such percentage that may have been effected pursuant to this Section 5.5. Such adjustment shall be prospective in nature and shall only apply to succeeding Collection Periods after the adjustment is made.
(c)
The Funding Seller may, no more frequently than twice per calendar year, submit a written request to the Co-Agents, requesting a change in the Discount Rate, the Maximum Mandatory Repurchase Percentage, the Level 3 Maximum Amount, the Level 3A Maximum Amount or the Level 4 Reserve Percentage, or any combination thereof, in order to adjust for changes in the credit quality of the Purchased Receivables and the history and magnitude of write-offs made with respect thereto; provided, however, that (A) any such changes shall be effective as of the first day of a Collection Period and shall be prospective only, and (B) no such changes shall cause the total credit support available to cover losses in accordance with Sections 5.3(b)(i)-(v) and 5.3(c)(i)-(v) (without taking into account the Discount Ledger Balance) to be less protective than such total credit support immediately prior to giving effect to the requested changes, (C) as a condition to any increase in the Level 3 Maximum Amount to an amount in excess of $50,000,000, the Funding Seller shall provide collateral in an amount no less than 85% of such excess in form and substance, and subject to documentation in form and substance, satisfactory to the Bank Purchasing Agent, in order to secure the Funding Seller’s obligations under Sections 5.6(a)(i) and 5.6(a)(iii), and (D) as a condition to any increase in the Level 3A Maximum Amount to an amount in excess of $40,000,000, the Funding Seller shall provide collateral in an amount no less than 100% of such excess in form and substance, and subject to documentation in form and substance, satisfactory to the Bank Purchasing Agent, in order to secure the Funding Seller’s obligations under Sections 5.6(a)(ii) and 5.6(a)(iii). Any such requested change shall be accepted or rejected by the Co-Agents within five Business Days following the Reporting Date that next follows the receipt of such request. The Co-Agents shall be obligated to agree, in good faith, to accept or reject each written request submitted to them pursuant to this Section 5.5(c) within such five-Business Day period; it being agreed and understood that, if agreement is not achieved within such period, then such requested change shall be deemed to have been rejected. For the avoidance of doubt, the prospective changes to the Discount Rate and Level 4 Reserve Percentage that may occur pursuant to Sections 5.5(a) and 5.5(b) shall not constitute or trigger changes to such rates pursuant to this Section 5.5(c).
5.6

the Bank Purchasing Agent shall be permitted to make a draw under one or both of the KfW Guarantees (in accordance with subparagraph (B) below) in an amount equal to the excess of:

19.
Performance Guarantee
19.1
The Performance Guarantor (A) hereby irrevocably, absolutely and unconditionally guarantees to the Purchaser, the Bank Purchasing Agent and the Bank Purchasers and their respective assignees the prompt performance when due of all obligations of the Servicer, the Originators and the Initial Purchaser hereunder and under each of the other Transaction Documents (including, without limitation, payment in full when due, whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise, of all amounts owing by the Servicer, the Originators or the Initial Purchaser to the Funding Seller, the Purchaser and the Bank Purchasing Agent) strictly in accordance with the terms hereof and thereof; and (B) accordingly agrees that, whenever the Servicer, any Originator or the Initial Purchaser shall fail to perform any such obligation when due hereunder or thereunder, the Performance Guarantor shall immediately perform, or cause to be performed, such obligation as if it were the principal obligor and regardless of the reason for such failure (such obligations being herein collectively referred to as the “TMUS Guaranteed Obligations”). For the avoidance of doubt, the Performance Guarantor shall have no obligation to guaranty (and does not guaranty) any obligations of the Funding Seller under the Transaction Documents. For the sake of clarity, it is expressly acknowledged that the TMUS Guaranteed Obligations do not include any act, inaction, obligation or liability of the Funding Seller to fully and punctually pay, perform or comply with any of the terms, covenants, conditions, agreements, undertakings and obligations on the part of the Funding Seller to be paid, performed or complied with by it under this Agreement, any other Transaction Document or any document entered into in connection with the foregoing.

The obligations of the Performance Guarantor under this Performance Guarantee are absolute and unconditional, irrespective of the validity or enforceability of any other section of this Agreement or any Transaction Document, the value of any collateral provided to the Bank Purchasing Agent or the Bank Collections Agent or the release or exchange of any such collateral. The Performance Guarantor waives any right it may have of first requiring the Bank Purchasing Agent or the Bank Collections Agent to proceed against, or enforce any other rights or security or claim from, any person before claiming from it under this guarantee. This waiver applies irrespective of any non-mandatory law or any provision of this Agreement to the contrary. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, it is agreed that the occurrence of any one or more of the following shall not alter or impair the liability of the Performance Guarantor hereunder, which shall remain absolute and unconditional as described above:
(a)
at any time or from time to time, without notice to the Performance Guarantor, the time for any performance of or compliance with any of the obligations of the Servicer or an Originator under the Transaction Documents shall be waived;
(b)
any of the acts mentioned in any of the provisions of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document shall be done or omitted;
(c)
any of the TMUS Guaranteed Obligations shall be modified, supplemented or amended in any respect, or any right under this Agreement or any other Transaction Document shall be waived or any of the TMUS Guaranteed Obligations or any security therefore shall be released or exchanged in whole or in part or otherwise dealt with; or
(d)
any lien or security interest granted to, or in favor of, either of the Co-Agents as security for the TMUS Guaranteed Obligations shall fail to be effective or perfected.
The Performance Guarantor hereby expressly waives diligence, presentment, demand of payment, protest and all notices whatsoever, and any requirement that the Bank Purchasing Agent exhaust any right, power or remedy or proceed against any Originator or the Servicer or against any other Person under any other agreement, or guarantee of, or security for, any of the TMUS Guaranteed Obligations.
19.4
The obligations of the Performance Guarantor under this Section 19 shall be automatically reinstated if and to the extent that for any reason any payment by or on behalf of any Originator or the Servicer under this Agreement or any other Transaction Document is rescinded or must otherwise be restored by any holder of any of the TMUS Guaranteed Obligations, whether as a result of any proceedings in bankruptcy or reorganization or otherwise, and the Performance Guarantor agrees that it will indemnify the Bank Purchasing Agent on demand for all reasonable costs and expenses (including, without limitation, fees of counsel) incurred by the Bank Purchasing Agent in connection with such rescission or restoration, including any such costs or expenses incurred in defending against any claim alleging that such payment constituted a preference, fraudulent transfer or similar payment under any bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law.
19.5
The Performance Guarantor hereby waives all rights of subrogation or contribution, whether arising by contract or operation of law or otherwise by reason of any payment by it pursuant to the provisions of this Section 19.
19.6
The Performance Guarantor agrees that, as between the Performance Guarantor and any of the Purchasing Entities, the obligations of the Originators and the Servicer under this Agreement and each other Transaction Document may be declared to be forthwith due and payable as provided herein and therein (and shall be deemed to have become automatically due and payable as provided herein and therein) for the purposes of Section 19.1 hereof notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition preventing such


66



declaration (or such obligations from becoming automatically due and payable) as against any Originator or the Servicer and that, in the event of such declaration (or such obligations being deemed to have become automatically due and payable), such obligations (whether or not due and payable by any Originator or the Servicer, as applicable) shall forthwith become due and payable by the Performance Guarantor for purposes of Section 19.1.
19.7
The guarantee in this Section 19 is a continuing guarantee, and shall apply to all TMUS Guaranteed Obligations whenever arising.
19.8
Without limiting or being limited by the foregoing, the Performance Guarantor shall pay on demand to each Indemnified Party any and all amounts necessary to indemnify such Indemnified Party from and against any and all Indemnified Amounts relating to or resulting from either of the following:
(a)
any value added tax plus any interest and other ancillary Tax charges (A) applicable to the payment of the Servicer Fee, the supply of the services rendered by the Servicer or the sale of the Receivables and the Related Rights pursuant to this Agreement or the Onward Receivables Purchase Agreement or (B) arising as a result of a breach by the Funding Seller, the Servicer, the Performance Guarantor or any of their Affiliates of Section 7.1(l) (less any respective value added tax credits or deductions as are obtained by or credited to the Purchasing Entities, which credits or deductions shall be taken into account following the final and unchangeable determination thereof by the German tax authorities; whereby the Bank Purchaser shall take reasonable steps to receive eligible value added tax credits or deductions by filing respective returns); or
(b)
any Taxes, other than Excluded Taxes, payable by the Purchaser to the relevant German tax authorities if (contrary to the expectations of the parties hereto) the Purchaser is determined by the relevant German tax authorities to have a permanent establishment or other taxable presence located in the Federal Republic of Germany.
19.9
UCC Filing Indemnity. The Performance Guarantor hereby agrees to indemnify each of the Purchasing Entities from and against any and all losses, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees) suffered by each such Purchasing Entity arising out of the avoidance (or “clawback”) of the transfers by the January 2015 Joining Originator of Designated SunCom Receivables (or of any proceeds of such receivables) as a preference or fraudulent transfer, in the event of a bankruptcy, liquidation, conservatorship, receivership or similar proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, involving the January 2015 Joining Originator or its assets, which avoidance (or “clawback”) is attributable to (A) the non-timely filing of financing statements with respect to such transfers by the January 2015 Joining Originator and/or (B) the fact that the Joinder and Second Amendment to the Conveyancing Agreement, dated as of the January 2015 Amendment Effective Date (which confirms and ratifies such transfers), was executed and delivered as of a date later than the date on which such transfers actually occurred.
20.
Termination of KFW Guarantees
20.1
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary stated herein, the Funding Seller may terminate either of the KfW Guarantees in the event that the Funding Seller provides the Bank Purchasing Agent with a cash deposit, another guarantee or a letter of credit in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Bank Purchasing Agent. The parties hereto shall cooperate with the Funding Seller to effectuate such termination.
21.
Purchasing Entities’ Undertakings related to German VAT
21.1
No Purchasing Entity nor any of its Affiliates shall exercise any option (if any) available under German law to have value added tax apply with respect to any supply, for German value added tax purposes, rendered in

67



connection with the sale of the Receivables contemplated by the Transaction Documents, unless the recipient of such Taxes suffers no disadvantage. In addition to the foregoing, the Funding Seller, the Servicer and the Performance Guarantor believe that the servicing obligations of the Servicer in connection with this agreement rendered to a Bank Purchaser located in Germany are subject to German value added tax and that such value added tax should be fully recoverable as input value added tax by the respective Bank Purchaser.
22.
Bankruptcy
22.1
Each party hereto hereby covenants and agrees that prior to the date which is one year and one day after the Final Termination Date, it will not institute against or join any other person in instituting against the Funding Seller any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceedings or other similar proceeding under the laws of the United States or any state of the United States or any other country.

T-MOBILE INFORMATION
DATA CONFIDENTIALITY PROVISIONS

1.CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary stated herein (including Section 12), the parties acknowledge and agree as follows:
1.1Confidentiality. The parties acknowledge and agree that the Bank Purchasing Agent may be given access to T-Mobile Information under this Agreement. The Servicer shall mark such medium as containing T-Mobile Information. Until the Final Termination Date and for so long as the Bank Purchasing Agent has T-Mobile Information, the Bank Purchasing Agent shall: (a) use at least the same degree of care to prevent unauthorized use and disclosure of such T-Mobile Information as that party uses with respect to its own Confidential Information (but in no event less than a reasonable degree of care); and (b) use such T-Mobile Information only in the performance of its rights and obligations under this Agreement. Following the Final Termination Date, at the request of the Funding Seller, the Bank Purchasing Agent shall return, or at the Bank Purchasing Agent’s option, destroy (and certify in writing such return or destruction) any and all T-Mobile Information received by it pursuant to this Agreement, provided that, notwithstanding the foregoing, the Bank Purchasing Agent may retain such copies of T-Mobile Information as it is required to retain to comply with its internal compliance policies or in accordance with applicable law. The Bank Purchasing Agent shall hold any such retained T-Mobile Information in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. This Section 1.1 shall survive termination of the Agreement. T-Mobile Information is Confidential Information of the T-Mobile Group under this Agreement; provided however that T-Mobile Information shall remain confidential and proprietary even if disclosed by a third party or in breach of the terms of this Agreement.
1.2Handling of T-Mobile Information. Bank Purchasing Agent: (a) may collect, store, access, use, process, maintain and disclose T-Mobile Information only to fulfill its obligations and exercise its rights and remedies under the Agreement and for no other purpose; and (b) shall, without limiting any other obligations applicable to T-Mobile Information hereunder, treat all T-Mobile Information as Confidential Information of T-Mobile Group. For purposes of this Annex, the acts or omissions of Bank Purchasing Agent and any Person to whom it has disclosed T-Mobile Information are Bank Purchasing Agent’s acts or omissions.
1.3Security Safeguards. Bank Purchasing Agent is fully responsible for any authorized or unauthorized collection, storage, disclosure and use of, and access to, T-Mobile Information received by it pursuant to this Agreement. Bank Purchasing Agent shall not permit any collection, storage, disclosure or use of, or access to, T-Mobile Information that this Agreement does not expressly authorize. Bank Purchasing Agent shall implement and maintain a written information security program that contains administrative, technical, and physical safeguards (“Safeguards”) appropriate to its business and the protection of T-Mobile Information received by it. Bank Purchasing Agent’s information security program shall meet common industry practices for such Safeguards, including, without limitation, complying with all applicable laws governing the security and handling of T-Mobile Information by Bank Purchasing Agent. Such information security program shall include, without limitation: (a) adequate physical security of all premises in which T-Mobile Information will be processed and/or stored; (b) reasonable precautions taken with respect to the employment of, and access given to, Bank Purchasing Agent personnel, including, without limitation, background checks, training, disciplinary measures, and security clearances that assign specific access privileges to individuals; and (c) an appropriate network security program. Such network security program will include, without limitation: (i) appropriate access controls and data integrity controls; (ii) monitoring, testing and auditing of all controls; and (iii) appropriate corrective action and incident response plans.
1.4Contractors and Subcontractors. Bank Purchasing Agent shall ensure that only approved contractors and subcontractors (including any subsidiary, parent, affiliate or partner) who have a need to know of the T-Mobile Information may access such information, and only if Bank Purchasing Agent requires such contractors and

A-8-1



subcontractors to comply with obligations with respect to T-Mobile Information. Bank Purchasing Agent must use at least the same effort, but in no event less than a reasonable amount of effort, to enforce obligations of such individuals with regard to T-Mobile Information as Bank Purchasing Agent uses for its own similar confidential information.
1.5(Reserved)
1.6Security Breaches.
(a)(Reserved)
(b)Bank Purchasing Agent shall, promptly after confirmation thereof, notify Funding Seller of any actual, probable or reasonably suspected breach of any safeguards or of any other actual, probable or reasonably suspected unauthorized access to, or acquisition, use, loss, destruction, compromise or disclosure of, any T-Mobile Information maintained on the Bank Purchasing Agent Systems (each, a “Security Breach”).

In the event that as a result of such declaration or gap any of the rights or obligations of a party are materially affected, the parties shall meet and negotiate in good faith in order to arrive at an amendment of this Guarantee that will as closely as possible reflect what the parties would have intended if they had considered the point at the time of conclusion of this Guarantee.

6.2
The Guarantor waives any right it may have of first requiring any of the beneficiaries hereunder to proceed against, or enforce any other rights or security or claim from, any person before claiming from it under this Guarantee. This waiver applies irrespective of any non-mandatory law or any provision of this Guarantee or any Transaction Document to the contrary.
6.3
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, it is agreed that the occurrence of any one or more of the following shall not alter or impair the liability of the Guarantor hereunder, which shall remain absolute and unconditional as described above:

(iv)
any lien or security interest granted to, or in favor of, any of the beneficiaries hereunder as security for the Deutsche Telekom Guaranteed Obligations shall fail to be effective or perfected.
The Guarantor hereby expressly waives diligence, presentment, demand of payment, protest and all notices whatsoever, and any requirement that any of the beneficiaries hereunder exhaust any right, power or remedy or proceed against any member of the T-Mobile Group or against any other Person under any other agreement, or guarantee of, or security for, any of the Deutsche Telekom Guaranteed Obligations.
6.4
The obligations of the Guarantor under this Guarantee shall be automatically reinstated if and to the extent that for any reason any payment by or on behalf of any member of the T-Mobile Group under any


A-9-4



Transaction Document is rescinded or must otherwise be restored by any holder of any of the Deutsche Telekom Guaranteed Obligations, whether as a result of any proceedings in bankruptcy or reorganization or otherwise, and the Guarantor agrees that it will indemnify each of the beneficiaries hereunder on demand for all reasonable costs and expenses (including, without limitation, fees of counsel) incurred by it or them in connection with such rescission or restoration, including any such costs or expenses incurred in defending against any claim alleging that such payment constituted a preference, fraudulent transfer or similar payment under any bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law.
6.5
The Guarantor hereby waives its right to take recourse (Rückgriffrecht) against any member of the T-Mobile Group resulting from any demand under this Guarantee until the Guaranteed Obligations have been fully and finally discharged.
6.6
The Guarantor agrees that, as between the Guarantor and the beneficiaries hereunder, the obligations of any member of the T-Mobile Group under any Transaction Document may be declared to be forthwith due and payable as provided therein (and shall be deemed to have become automatically due and payable as provided therein) for the purposes hereof notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition preventing such declaration (or such obligations from becoming automatically due and payable) as against such member of the T-Mobile Group and that, in the event of such declaration (or such obligations being deemed to have become automatically due and payable), such obligations (whether or not due and payable by any member of the T-Mobile Group, as applicable) shall forthwith become due and payable by the Guarantor hereunder.
6.7
This Guarantee is a continuing guarantee, and shall apply to all Deutsche Telekom Guaranteed Obligations whenever arising.
