Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

Loan and Security Agreement

 

On February 1, 2018, PennyMac Financial Services, Inc. (the “Company”), through two of its controlled subsidiaries, PennyMac Loan Services, LLC (“PLS”) and Private National Mortgage Acceptance Company, LLC (“PNMAC”), entered into a Loan and Security Agreement with Credit Suisse AG, Cayman Islands Branch (“CSCIB”), as lender (the “CS Loan Agreement”). Pursuant to the CS Loan Agreement, PLS may finance certain of its mortgage servicing rights relating to mortgage loans pooled into Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac securities (the “Conventional MSRs”). The obligations of PLS are fully guaranteed by PNMAC, and the mortgage loans relating to the Conventional MSRs are serviced by PLS pursuant to the terms of the CS Loan Agreement and the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac guidelines, as applicable. The CS Loan Agreement is committed to February 1, 2020.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the CS Loan Agreement, the Company may borrow up to a committed amount of $407 million, which amount is reduced by the aggregate outstanding purchase price under a Master Repurchase Agreement dated as of December 19, 2016, among Credit Suisse First Boston Mortgage Capital LLC (“CSFB”), CSCIB, and PLS (the “VFN Repurchase Agreement”). The VFN Repurchase Agreement is part of a structured finance transaction that PLS uses to finance Ginnie Mae mortgage servicing rights (“Ginnie MSRs”) and related excess servicing spread. The available facility amount is also reduced to the extent that the combined borrowed and/or purchased amounts outstanding under all of the credit agreements provided to the Company by CSFB, CSCIB and their affiliates (collectively, the “CS Buyers”) exceed (i) a maximum combined purchase price of $1.5 billion, or (ii) a maximum combined committed purchase price of $700 million. The CS Loan Agreement further provides that PLS may only borrow amounts thereunder to the extent the VFN Repurchase Agreement is fully drawn based on the terms of the structured finance transaction.

 

The principal amount of the borrowings under the CS Loan Agreement is based upon a percentage of the market value of the Conventional MSRs pledged by PLS (the “collateral value”), subject to the maximum loan amount described above. Under the CS Loan Agreement, PLS granted to CSCIB a security interest in all of its right, title and interest in, to and under the Conventional MSRs. The pledge of the Conventional MSRs and the related security interest are subject to separate acknowledgement agreements by and among CSCIB, PLS and Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, respectively, pursuant to which CSCIB and PLS acknowledge and reaffirm that such security interest is subordinated to all rights, powers and prerogatives of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, respectively, under its various agreements with PLS.

 

On a monthly basis, or upon the loan repayment date, PLS will be required to pay CSCIB accrued interest (at a rate reflective of the current market and based on LIBOR plus a margin) to the monthly settlement date or the date of such repayment, as applicable. PLS is also required to pay CSCIB a fee for the structuring of the CS Loan Agreement, as well as certain other administrative fees, costs and expenses in connection with CSCIB’s management and ongoing administration of the CS Loan Agreement.

 

The CS Loan Agreement contains margin call provisions that provide CSCIB with certain rights where there has been a decline in the market value of the Conventional MSRs. Under these circumstances, CSCIB may require PLS to transfer cash in an amount sufficient to eliminate any margin deficit resulting from such a decline.

 

The CS Loan Agreement requires PLS to maintain various financial and other covenants, which include maintaining (i) a minimum adjusted tangible net worth at all times greater than or equal to $500 million; (ii) a minimum in unrestricted cash and cash equivalents at all times greater than or equal to $40 million; (iii) a ratio of total indebtedness to adjusted tangible net worth not to exceed 10:1; and (iv) profitability for at least one (1) of the prior two (2) fiscal quarters, as of the end of each fiscal quarter.

 

In addition, the CS Loan Agreement contains events of default (subject to certain materiality thresholds and grace periods), including payment defaults, breaches of covenants and/or certain representations and warranties, cross-defaults, guarantor defaults, subservicer termination events, bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings and other events of default customary for this type of transaction. The remedies for such events of default include the acceleration of the principal amount outstanding under the CS Loan Agreement and the liquidation by CSCIB of the pledged Conventional MSRs then securing the borrowings.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the CS Loan Agreement and the related guaranty do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Loan and Security Agreement, which has been filed with this


 

Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1. Material terms of the VFN Repurchase Agreement and the structured finance transaction documentation can be found in the Company’s Current Reports on Form 8-K filed on December 21, 2016, February 23, 2017, and August 16, 2017.

 

Repurchase Agreement with Credit Suisse First Boston Mortgage Capital LLC

 

On February 1, 2018, the Company, through PLS and PNMAC, also entered into an amendment (the “February Amendment”) to the terms of its Third Amended and Restated Master Repurchase Agreement, dated as of April 28, 2017, by and among CSFB, acting as administrative agent for the CS Buyers, PLS and PNMAC (the “CS Repurchase Agreement”). The CS Repurchase Agreement is committed to April 27, 2018.

 

The Company, through PLS, uses the CS Repurchase Agreement to sell, and later repurchase (a) certain newly originated residential and small balance multifamily mortgage loans and recently acquired Ginnie Mae early buyout mortgage loans, and (b) mortgage servicing advances made by PLS in connection with certain Ginnie Mae early buyout mortgage loans. The obligations of PLS under the CS Repurchase Agreement are fully guaranteed by PNMAC.

 

The sole purpose of the February Amendment is to reflect the Company’s entry into the CS Loan Agreement and count any outstanding borrowings thereunder toward the maximum combined purchase price of $1.5 billion and the maximum combined committed purchase price of $700 million available to PLS under the CS Repurchase Agreement, the VFN Repurchase Agreement and the CS Loan Agreement.  All other terms and conditions of the CS Repurchase Agreement remain the same in all material respects.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the CS Repurchase Agreement and the related guaranty do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the description of such agreements in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K as filed with the SEC on April 6, 2016, the full text of such agreements attached thereto as Exhibit 10.1 and Exhibit 10.2, respectively, and any amendments filed thereafter, including Exhibit 10.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

This LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT (as amended or supplemented from time to time, this “Agreement”) dated as of February 1, 2018, is among PENNYMAC LOAN SERVICES, LLC (the “Borrower” or the “Servicer”), PRIVATE NATIONAL MORTGAGE ACCEPTANCE COMPANY, LLC (the “Guarantor”) and CREDIT SUISSE AG, CAYMAN ISLANDS BRANCH (the “Lender”).

BACKGROUND

The Borrower wishes to obtain financing from time to time to provide funding for the origination or acquisition of certain Eligible Servicing Rights (as defined herein), which Eligible Servicing Rights shall secure Loans (as defined herein) to be made by the Lender hereunder.

The Lender has agreed, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, to provide such financing to the Borrower.

Accordingly, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto hereby agree as follows:

ARTICLE I

Section 1.02    Accounting Matters.  Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all accounting terms used herein shall be interpreted, and all financial statements and certificates and reports as to financial matters required to be delivered to the Lender hereunder shall be prepared in accordance with GAAP.

ARTICLE II

LOANS, BORROWING, PREPAYMENT

Section 2.01    Loans. On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement, the Lender shall make loans in an aggregate amount not to exceed the Available Facility Amount (each such loan, a “Loan”) to the Borrower from time to time. The Lender shall distribute the proceeds of such Loan to the Borrower no later than 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the related Funding Date in accordance with Section 2.03.

Section 2.02    Note.

(a)        The Loans made by the Lender shall be evidenced by a single promissory note of the Borrower substantially in the form of Exhibit 2.02(a) hereto (the “Note”), dated the date hereof, payable to the Lender in a principal amount not to exceed an amount equal to the Available Facility Amount as originally in effect and otherwise duly completed.

(b)        The date, amount, and interest rate of each Loan made by the Lender to the Borrower, and each payment made on account of the principal thereof, shall be recorded by the Lender on its books and, prior to any transfer of the Note, noted by the Lender on the grid attached to the Note or any continuation thereof, provided, that failure of the Lender to make any such recordation or notation shall not affect the obligations of the Borrower to make payments when due of any amount hereunder or under the Note in respect of the Loans.

Section 2.03    Borrower Electronic Files and Funding Requests.

(a)        On any Funding Notice Date prior to the Wind Down Date, the Borrower may request the Lender to make a Loan on the Funding Date specified in the related Borrower Funding Request by delivering to the Lender an irrevocable Borrower Funding Request no later than 3:00 p.m. (New York City time) on such Funding Notice Date. The amount of any Loan requested pursuant to a Borrower Funding Request shall be not greater than the related Available Loan Amount and, with respect to the Initial Borrower Funding request, shall not be less than $5

-2-


 

million. The Borrower may request a Funding Date on any Business Day; provided, however, a Funding Date that involves the addition of new Collateral may not fall on any of the five (5) last Business Days in any calendar month unless otherwise agreed by Lender. Any Borrower Funding Request that relates to the addition of new Collateral shall include an Electronic File describing all Eligible Servicing Rights that constitute the Collateral hereunder.

(b)        Regardless whether the Borrower intends to deliver a Borrower Funding Request during any calendar month, the Borrower shall deliver to the Lender on the fifteenth (15th) calendar day of each month (or, if such day is not a Business Day, the following Business Day) (any such day, a “Collateral Reporting Date”), an Electronic File with respect to all Eligible Servicing Rights that constitute the Collateral hereunder, which shall include all updates to the Collateral since the date of the preceding Electronic File.

(c)        In Lender’s determination of Collateral Value for any of the Servicing Rights hereunder, it shall apply the MSR Value of the Servicing Rights in a related Borrowing Base Report. Any excess of the amount funded on such Loan over the Collateral Value shall result in a Borrowing Base Deficiency as set forth in Section 2.08(b). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 2.03, the Lender shall have the right to determine MSR Value at any time in its sole discretion.

(d)        By delivering a Borrower Funding Request, the Borrower represents and warrants to the Lender that, after taking into account the amount of the requested Loan, all conditions precedent to such Loan specified in Section 5.02 have been satisfied.

Section 2.04    Borrowing Base Reports. With respect to each Funding Date, the Lender shall determine the MSR Value of the Eligible Servicing Rights to be pledged as security for a Loan on such Funding Date and shall communicate such determination by providing Borrower with a Borrowing Base Report prior to such Funding Date. For purposes of preparing each Borrowing Base Report, the Lender shall calculate the Collateral Value of the Eligible Servicing Rights described in the Relevant Electronic File.

Section 2.05    Interest. Interest shall accrue on each Loan for each day during a related Interest Period at a per annum rate equal to the product of (x) the outstanding principal balance of such Loan on such day, multiplied by (y) the sum of (i) the applicable LIBOR Rate for such day and (ii) the Applicable Margin. Interest shall be payable on each Monthly Settlement Date in arrears with respect to each Loan through the final day of each Interest Period (regardless whether such day is a Business Day), such amount to be payable on each Monthly Settlement Date. The Lender shall determine the LIBOR Rate for each Loan, which may be reset on a daily basis, as set forth in the definition of “LIBOR Rate” and provide notice of such determination to the Borrower. The Lender shall also calculate the amount of interest or other amounts due to be paid by the Borrower from time to time hereunder (including in connection with any prepayment or repayment of Loans permitted hereunder) and shall provide a written statement thereof to the Borrower at least two Business Days prior to the due date of such payments (or the relevant repayment or prepayment after having received a notice thereof); provided, that failure to provide such statements on a timely basis shall not relieve the Borrower of the obligation to pay any interest and principal due on the applicable payment date (based upon its good faith calculation of the amount

-3-


 

due, such amount to be promptly reconciled after receipt of a subsequent statement from the Lender) and other such amounts hereunder promptly upon receipt of such statement.

Section 2.06    Increased Capital Costs. If Lender determines in its sole discretion that any Change in Law or any change in accounting rules regarding capital requirements has the effect of reducing the rate of return on Lender’s capital under this Agreement as a consequence of such Change in Law or change in accounting rules, then from time to time Borrower will compensate Lender for such reduced rate of return suffered as a consequence of such Change in Law or change in accounting rules on terms similar to those imposed by Lender. Further, if due to the introduction of, any change in, or the compliance by Lender with (i) any eurocurrency reserve requirement, or (ii) the interpretation of any law, regulation or any guideline or request from any central bank or other Governmental Authority whether or not having the force of law, there shall be an increase in the cost to Lender as a consequence of the Loans or other advances of funds made by Lender pursuant to this Agreement or any of the Facility Documents relating to fundings or commitments under this Agreement, then Borrower shall, from time to time and upon demand by Lender, compensate Lender for such increased costs, and such amounts shall be deemed a part of the Obligations hereunder. Lender shall provide Borrower with notice as to any such Change in Law, change in accounting rules or change in compliance promptly following Lender’s receipt of actual knowledge thereof.

Section 2.07   Alternate Rate of Interest. If on any Business Day, the Lender determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) (a) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the LIBOR Rate; or (b) that the LIBOR Rate will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to the Lender of making or maintaining its Loan; or (c) that it has become unlawful for it to honor its obligation to make or maintain Loans hereunder using the LIBOR Rate, or maintaining its Loans (or its Loan) included in any advance, then the Lender shall give notice thereof to the Borrower by telephone, facsimile, or other electronic means as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Lender notifies the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, any Borrower Funding Request that requests that Lender make a new Loan, subject to the timely approval of the Borrower after receipt of notice of such revised rate, at a rate per annum that the Lender determines in its reasonable discretion adequately reflects the cost to the Lender of making or maintaining the Loan.

Section 2.08    Mandatory Repayment of Loans.

(a)        On each Loan Repayment Date (or, if such day is not a Business Day, the following Business Day) from and after the Wind Down Date, and continuing until the Outstanding Aggregate Loan Amount shall be reduced to zero, the Borrower shall repay an amount equal to at least one-twelfth (1/12) of the Outstanding Aggregate Loan Amount as of the Wind Down Date with respect to all Loans and all other amounts due under this Agreement.  Loans may be prepaid in accordance with the terms of Section 2.09 hereof and, to the extent prepaid, provided the Wind Down Date shall not have occurred, may be re-borrowed hereunder in accordance with the terms hereof (including satisfaction of all conditions precedent contained in Section 5.02). Notwithstanding the foregoing, all amounts owing under the Facility shall be immediately due and payable on the Termination Date.

-4-


 

(b)        If, on any Business Day (a “Borrowing Base Shortfall Day”), the Lender provides written notice to the Borrower that the Lender has determined in its sole reasonable discretion based on the Borrowing Base Report most recently delivered by the Lender pursuant to Section 2.04 that the Outstanding Aggregate Loan Amount on such day exceeds the lesser of (i) the Borrowing Base and (ii) the Available Facility Amount on such day (such circumstance, a “Borrowing Base Deficiency”), the Borrower (i) on the same day if the Lender notifies Borrower by 11:00 a.m. (New York time) of such Borrowing Base Deficiency, or (ii) if the notice is received later than 11:00 a.m. (New York time), then within one (1) Business Day after the Borrowing Base Shortfall Day, shall repay outstanding Loans (including accrued Interest thereon), in an amount equal to the amount of the Borrowing Base Deficiency specified in the notice provided to the Borrower by the Lender (such requirement a “Margin Call”).

Section 2.09   Optional Prepayment. The Borrower may, at its option, prepay any Loan advanced hereunder in full or in part on any date, but not more than once per month; provided, however, that the Borrower shall be permitted at any time, without limitation, to prepay any Loan in connection with a Margin Call (any such date, an “Optional Prepayment Date”). Any such prepayment received by the Lender by 3:00 p.m. (New York City time) on such Optional Prepayment Date shall be applied by the Lender on such Business Day. Any such prepayment received by the Lender after 3:00 p.m. (New York City time) on such Optional Prepayment Date shall be applied by the Lender on the following Business Day. For the avoidance of doubt, any optional prepayment in full shall not result in the termination of this Agreement unless such termination is declared in writing by the Borrower, acting in its discretion.

ARTICLE III

PAYMENTS; COMPUTATIONS; TAXES; FEES

Section 3.01    Payments and Computations, Etc.

(a)        Unless otherwise expressly stated herein, all amounts to be paid or deposited hereunder shall be paid or deposited in accordance with the terms hereof no later than 4:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the day when due in lawful money of the United States of America in same day funds.

(b)        The Borrower shall, to the extent permitted by law, pay interest on all amounts (including principal, interest and fees) due but not paid on the date such payment is due hereunder as provided herein, for the period from, and including, such due date until, but excluding, the date paid, at the applicable Default Rate, payable on demand; provided,  however that such interest rate shall not at any time exceed the maximum rate permitted by applicable law.

(c)        All computations of interest and fees hereunder shall be made on the basis of a year of 360 days for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which payable.

(d)        The Borrower agrees that the principal of and interest on the Loans shall be recourse obligations of the Borrower.

-5-


 

(e)        All payments made by the Borrower under this Agreement shall be made without set-off or counterclaim.

Section 3.02    Taxes.

(a)        All payments made by Borrower under this Agreement shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for or on account of, any present or future taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings, and all liabilities (including penalties, interest and additions to tax) with respect thereto imposed by any Governmental Authority therewith or thereon, excluding income taxes, branch profits taxes, franchise taxes or any other tax imposed on net income by the United States, a state or a foreign jurisdiction under the laws of which the Lender is organized or of its applicable lending office, or a state or foreign jurisdiction with respect to which Lender has a present or former connection (other than any connection arising from executing, delivering, being party to, engaging in any transaction pursuant to, performing its obligations under or enforcing any Facility Document), or any political subdivision thereof (collectively, such non-excluded taxes are hereinafter called “Taxes”), all of which shall be paid by Borrower for its own account not later than the date when due. If Borrower is required by law or regulation to deduct or withhold any Taxes from or in respect of any amount payable hereunder, it shall: (a) make such deduction or withholding, (b) pay the amount so deducted or withheld to the appropriate Governmental Authority not later than the date when due, (c) deliver to the Lender, promptly, original tax receipts and other evidence satisfactory to Lender of the payment when due of the full amount of such Taxes; and (d) except as otherwise expressly provided in Section 3.02(d) below, pay to the Lender such additional amounts (including all taxes imposed by any Governmental Authority on such additional amounts) as may be necessary so that the Lender receives, free and clear of all Taxes, a net amount equal to the amount it would have received under this Agreement, as if no such deduction or withholding had been made.

(b)        In addition, Borrower agrees to pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law any current or future stamp or documentary taxes or any other excise or property taxes, charges or similar levies (including, without limitation, mortgage recording taxes, transfer taxes and similar fees) imposed by any taxing authority that arise from any payment made hereunder or from the execution, delivery or registration of, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement (“Other Taxes”).

(c)        Borrower agrees to indemnify Lender for the full amount of Taxes (including additional amounts with respect thereto) and Other Taxes, and the full amount of taxes of any kind imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section 3.02, and any liability (including penalties, interest and expenses arising thereon or with respect thereto) arising therefrom or with respect thereto, provided that Lender shall have provided Borrower with evidence, reasonably satisfactory to Borrower, of payment of Taxes or Other Taxes, as the case may be.

(d)        Any Lender that either (i) is not incorporated under the laws of the United States, any State thereof, or the District of Columbia or (ii) whose name does not include “Incorporated,” “Inc.,” “Corporation,” “Corp.,” “P.C.,” “insurance company,” or “assurance company” (a “Foreign Purchaser”) shall provide Borrower with original properly completed and duly executed United States Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) Forms W-8BEN or W-8ECI or any

-6-


 

successor form prescribed by the IRS, certifying that such Person is either (1) entitled to benefits under an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party which eliminates or (2) otherwise fully exempt from United States withholding tax under Sections 1441 through 1442 of the Code on payments to it on or prior to the date upon which each such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender. Each Foreign Lender will resubmit the appropriate form eliminating withholding tax on payments to it on the earliest of (A) the third anniversary of the prior submission, or (B) on or before the expiration of thirty (30) days after there is a “change in circumstances” with respect to such Person as defined in Treas. Reg. Section 1.1441-1(e)(4)(ii)(D). For any period with respect to which the Foreign Lender has failed to provide Borrower with the appropriate form or other relevant document (x) as expressly required under this Section 3(d) (unless such failure is due to a change in treaty, law, or regulation occurring subsequent to the date on which a form originally was required to be provided, under the first sentence of this Section 3(d)) or (y) otherwise as required to establish exemption from United States withholding under FATCA, by such Person or by such Person’s assignor or transferor, such Person shall not be entitled to “gross-up” of Taxes under Section 3.02(d) or indemnification under Section 3.02(c) with respect to Taxes imposed by the United States which are imposed because of such failure; provided, however that should a Foreign Lender, which is otherwise exempt from a withholding tax, become subject to Taxes because of its failure to deliver a form required hereunder, Borrower shall take such steps as such Foreign Lender shall reasonably request to assist such Foreign Lender to recover such Taxes.

(e)        Without prejudice to the survival or any other agreement of Borrower hereunder, the agreements and obligations of Borrower contained in this Section 3.02 shall survive the termination of this Agreement. Nothing contained in this Section 3.02 shall require Lender to make available any of their tax returns or other information that it deems to be confidential or proprietary.

(f)        The Lender shall (A) promptly notify the Borrower of any change in circumstances which would modify or render invalid any claimed exemption or reduction, and (B) cooperate, in its reasonable discretion and at Borrower’s expense, with Borrower to mitigate any requirement of Applicable Law of any jurisdiction in which the Borrower may be required to withhold or deduct any taxes from amounts payable to Lender hereunder.

Section 3.03   Fees and Expenses.  The Borrower agrees to pay to the Lender all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including reasonable and documented fees and expenses of Lender’s counsel not to exceed $25,000) incurred in connection with the execution of this Agreement (and any amendments thereto) and the Facility Documents; provided that such limitation on fees and expenses of Lender’s counsel shall not apply to (i) any amendment or renewal of, or waiver of any provision of, this Agreement or any other Facility Document or (ii) any document executed after the Closing Date in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

Section 6.01    Representations and Warranties of Each Borrower Party.  Borrower and Guarantor, as applicable, represents and warrants to the Lender that throughout the term of this Agreement (except to the extent any such representation or warranty is stated to relate solely to an earlier date, in which case, such representation or warranty shall have been true or correct as of such date):

(a)        Borrower Party Existence. Each Borrower Party has been duly organized and is validly existing as a limited liability company in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware.

(b)        Licenses.  Each Borrower Party is duly licensed or is otherwise qualified in each jurisdiction in which it transacts business for the business which it conducts and is not in default of any applicable federal, state or local laws, rules and regulations unless, in either instance, the failure to take such action is not reasonably likely (either individually or in the aggregate) to cause a Material Adverse Effect and is not in default of such state’s applicable laws, rules and regulations.  Each Borrower Party has the requisite power and authority and legal right and necessary licenses to execute and deliver, engage in the transactions contemplated by, and perform and observe the terms and conditions of each Facility Document.  Borrower is an FHA Approved Mortgagee.

(c)        Power.  Each Borrower Party has all requisite corporate or other power, and has all governmental licenses, authorizations, consents and approvals necessary to own its assets and carry on its business as now being or as proposed to be conducted, except where the lack of

-11-


 

such licenses, authorizations, consents and approvals would not be reasonably likely to have a Material Adverse Effect.

(d)        Due Authorization.  Each Borrower Party has all necessary corporate or other power, authority and legal right to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under each of the Facility Documents, as applicable.  Each Facility Document has been (or, in the case of Facility Documents not yet executed, will be) duly authorized, executed and delivered by each Borrower Party, all requisite or other corporate action having been taken, and each is valid, binding and enforceable against each Borrower Party in accordance with its terms except as such enforcement may be affected by bankruptcy, by other insolvency laws, or by general principles of equity.

(e)        Financial Statements. The financial statements of each Borrower Party, copies of which have been furnished to Lender, (i) are, as of the dates and for the periods referred to therein, complete and correct in all material respects, (ii) present fairly the financial condition and results of operations of the related Borrower Party as of the dates and for the periods indicated and (iii) have been prepared in accordance with GAAP consistently applied, except as noted therein (subject as to interim statements to normal year-end adjustments). Since the date of the most recent financial statements, there has been no material adverse change in the consolidated business, operations or financial condition of any Borrower Party from that set forth in said financial statements nor is any Borrower Party aware of any state of facts which (with notice or the lapse of time) would or could result in any such material adverse change. Except as disclosed in such financial statements or pursuant to Section 7.01 hereof, no Borrower Party is subject to any liabilities direct or indirect, fixed or contingent, matured or unmatured, known or unknown, or liabilities for taxes, long-term leases or unusual forward or long-term commitments not disclosed by, or reserved against in, said balance sheet and related statements, and at the present time there are no material unrealized or anticipated losses from any loans.

(f)        Event of Default.  There exists no Event of Default under Section 8.01(e) hereof, which default gives rise to a right to accelerate indebtedness as referenced in Section 8.01(e) hereof.

(g)        Solvency. Each Borrower Party is solvent and will not be rendered insolvent by any Loan hereunder and, after giving effect to each such Loan, will not be left with an unreasonably small amount of capital with which to engage in its business.  No Borrower Party intends to incur, nor believes that it has incurred, debts beyond its ability to pay such debts as they mature and is not contemplating the commencement of insolvency, bankruptcy, liquidation or consolidation proceedings or the appointment of a receiver, liquidator, conservator, trustee or similar official in respect of such entity or any of its assets.  The amount of consideration being received by Borrower after giving effect to each Loan by the Lender constitutes reasonably equivalent value and fair consideration for such Loan. Borrower is not pledging any Collateral with any intent to hinder, delay or defraud any of its creditors. The Agreement and the Facility Documents, any other document contemplated hereby or thereby and each transaction have not been entered into fraudulently by any Borrower Party hereunder, or with the intent to hinder, delay or defraud any creditor or Lender.

documents of the related Borrower Party or result in the breach of any provision of, or conflict with or constitute a default under or result in the acceleration of any obligation under, any agreement, indenture, loan or credit agreement or other instrument to which a Borrower Party, the Collateral or any of a Borrower Party’s Property is or may be subject to, or result in the violation of any law, rule, regulation, order, judgment, writ, injunction or decree to which a Borrower Party, the Collateral or a Borrower Party’s Property is subject, which conflict would have a Material Adverse Effect.

(i)         True and Complete Disclosure.  All information, reports, exhibits, schedules, financial statements or certificates relating to any Borrower Party that any Borrower Party has delivered or caused to be delivered to Lender in connection with the initial or any ongoing due diligence of any Borrower Party and the negotiation, preparation, or delivery of the Facility Documents are true and complete and do not omit to disclose any material facts necessary to make the statements herein or therein, in light of the circumstances in which they are made, not misleading.

(k)        Litigation.  There is no action, proceeding or investigation pending with respect to which any Borrower Party has received service of process or, to the best of any Borrower Party’s knowledge threatened against it before any court, administrative agency or other tribunal (A) asserting the invalidity of any Facility Document, (B) seeking to prevent the consummation of any of the transactions contemplated by any Facility Document, (C) making a claim individually or in the aggregate in an amount greater than $10,000,000 against any Borrower Party, (D) which requires filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission in accordance with the 1934 Act or any rules thereunder, (E) which has resulted in the voluntary or involuntary suspension of a license, a cease and desist order, or such other action as could adversely impact any Borrower Party’s business or (F)  which might materially and adversely affect the validity of the Collateral or the performance by it of its obligations under, or the validity or enforceability of any Facility Document.

The Borrower agrees, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default and notice from the Lender, to assemble, at its expense, all of the Collateral that is in its possession (whether by return, repossession, or otherwise) at a place designated by the Lender. All out-of-pocket costs incurred by the Lender in the collection of all Obligations, and the enforcement of its rights hereunder, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and legal expenses, shall be paid out of the Collateral. Without limiting the foregoing, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default and the acceleration of the Loans pursuant to this Section 8.02, the Lender may, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, without notice, advertisement, hearing or process of law of any kind, (i) enter upon any premises where any of the Collateral which is in the possession of the Borrower (whether by return, repossession, or otherwise) may be located and take possession of and remove such Collateral, (ii) sell any or all of such Collateral, free of all rights and claims of the Borrower therein and thereto, at any public or private sale, and (iii) bid for and purchase any or all of such Collateral at any such sale. Any such sale shall be conducted in a commercially reasonable manner and in accordance with applicable law. The Borrower hereby expressly waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any and all notices, advertisements, hearings or process of law in connection with the exercise by the Lender of any of its rights and remedies upon the occurrence of an Event of Default. Each of the Lender and the Borrower shall have the right (but not the obligation) to bid for and purchase any or all Collateral at any public or private sale. The Borrower hereby agrees that in any sale of any of the Collateral, the Lender is hereby authorized to comply with any limitation or restriction in connection with such sale as it may be advised by counsel is necessary in order to avoid any violation of applicable law (including, without limitation, compliance with such procedures as may restrict the number of prospective bidders and purchasers, require that such prospective bidders and purchasers have certain qualifications, and restrict such prospective bidders and purchasers to Persons who will represent and agree that they are purchasing for their own account for investment and not with a view to the distribution or resale of such Collateral), or in order to obtain any required approval of the sale or of the purchaser by any Governmental Authority, and the Borrower further agrees that such compliance shall not result in such sale being considered or deemed not to have been made in a commercially reasonable manner. The Lender shall not be liable for any sale, private or public, conducted in accordance with this Section 8.02(c). If an Event of Default occurs, and upon acceleration of the Loans hereunder, the Loans and all other Obligations shall be immediately due and payable, and collections on the Eligible Servicing Rights and proceeds of sales and securitizations of Eligible Servicing Rights, and other Collateral will be used to pay the Obligations.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, to the extent any provision of this Section 8.02 conflicts with the Lender’s rights and remedies set forth in the Freddie Mac Acknowledgment Agreement, the Freddie Mac Acknowledgment Agreement shall control.

(d)        In the event that Borrower receives a notice from an Agency indicating a material breach, material default or material non-compliance by the Borrower that the Lender reasonably determines may entitle such Agency to terminate the Borrower, which breach, default or non-compliance has not been satisfactorily cured or remedied within ten (10) Business Days of the receipt by the Borrower of such notice, or such lesser time as Lender believes is necessary to protect its interest and provides Borrower with written notice thereof, as the case may be, the

-28-


 

Lender may by written notice to the Borrower, terminate the Facility and declare all Loans and all other Obligations to be immediately due and payable.

Section 8.03    Application of Proceeds.

(a)        Reserved.

(b)        Reserved.

(c)        Reserved.

(d)        On each Business Day during which an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing hereunder, the Lender shall apply Collections in the following order to pay:

(i)        to the Lender, any fees due pursuant to the terms hereof;

(ii)       to the Lender or any Indemnified Party an amount equal to any other amounts (including the Outstanding Aggregate Loan Amount) then due to such Persons pursuant to this Agreement that have not been paid by the Borrower (and to the extent that there are insufficient funds to pay all of the foregoing amounts, such amount shall be distributed to the foregoing parties, pro rata in accordance with the amounts due to such parties); and

(iii)      any remaining amounts to the Borrower by transferring such amount to the account specified in writing by the Borrower.

ARTICLE IX

ASSIGNMENT

Section 9.01    Restrictions on Assignments.  The Borrower shall not assign its rights hereunder or any interest herein without the prior written consent of the Lender. The Lender may assign any or all of its rights and its obligations, under this Agreement, under any Loan pursuant to this Agreement or under the other Facility Documents, (i) without consent of the Borrower, to (a) any Affiliate of Lender or a conduit or other entity supported by the Lender or an Affiliate of Lender or (b) following an Event of Default, and (ii) with the Borrower’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), to any other entity; provided, that notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Borrower shall not be subject to any increased costs or expenses as a result of such assignment made without Borrower’s consent; provided,  further that, if Lender assigns its rights and obligations to a conduit or other entity supported by the Lender or an Affiliate of Lender, Borrower agrees to cooperate in good faith with Lender to amend the Facility Documents to facilitate such assignment. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Article IX, the parties acknowledge and agree that the Acknowledgment Agreements do not permit any assignments of, or any parties rights, obligations, or interest in, the Acknowledgment Agreements, except pursuant to the express provisions of the related Acknowledgment Agreement.

-29-


 

Section 9.02    Evidence of Assignment; Endorsement on Note.  The Lender hereby agrees that it shall endorse the Note to reflect any assignments made pursuant to this Article IX or otherwise.

Section 9.03    Rights of Assignee.  Upon the assignment the Lender of all of its rights and obligations hereunder, under the Note and under the other Facility Documents to an assignee in accordance with Section 9.01, such assignee shall have all such rights and obligations of the Lender as set forth in such assignment or delegation, as applicable, and all references to the Lender in this Agreement or any Facility Document shall be deemed to apply to such assignee to the extent of such interest. If any interest in any Facility Document is transferred to any assignee which is organized under the laws of any jurisdiction other than the United States or any State thereof, the transferor Lender shall cause such assignee, concurrently with the effectiveness of such transfer, to comply with the provisions of Section 3.02.

Section 9.04    Permitted Participants; Effect.

(a)        The Lender may, in the ordinary course of its business and in accordance with applicable law, at any time (and from time to time) assign, pledge, hedge, hypothecate, or otherwise sell to one or more banks or other entities (each a “Participant”) all or a portion of participation interests in any Loan owing to the Lender, any Note held by the Lender, any Available Facility Amount of the Lender, or any other interest of the Lender under this Agreement or the other Facility Documents. In the event of any such assignment, pledge, hedge, hypothecation or sale by the Lender of a participating interest to a Participant, (i) the Lender’s obligations hereunder and under the other Facility Documents shall remain unchanged; (ii) the Lender shall remain solely responsible to the Borrower for the performance of such obligations; and (iii) the Lender shall remain the owner of its Loans and the holder of any Note issued to it in evidence thereof for the purposes under the Facility Documents. All amounts payable by the Borrower under this Agreement shall be determined as if the Lender had not assigned, pledged, hedged, hypothecated or otherwise sold such participating interests. The Borrower and the Lender shall continue to deal solely and directly with each other in connection with the Lender’s rights and obligations under the Facility Documents.

(b)        Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which Lender sells such a participation shall provide that Lender shall retain the sole right to enforce this Agreement and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement; provided that such agreement or instrument may provide that Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to any amendment, modification or waiver described in Section 11.01 that affects such Participant.  The Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 2.06,  3.02 and 10.1 (subject to the requirements and limitations therein, including the requirements under Section 3.02(d) (it being understood that the documentation required under Section 3.02(d) shall be delivered to Lender)) to the same extent as if it were the Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to Section 9.01; provided that such Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Sections 2.06 or 3.02 with respect to any participation than Lender would have been entitled to receive, except to the extent such entitlement to receive a greater payment results from a Change in Law that occurs after the Participant acquired the applicable participation. To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 11.12 as though it were the Lender. Lender shall, acting solely for this

-30-


 

purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of Borrower, maintain a register on which it enters the interest in the Loans or other obligations under the Facility Documents (the “Participant Register”); provided that Lender shall not have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant’s interest in any commitments, loans, letters of credit or its other obligations under any Facility Documents) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such commitment, loan, letter of credit or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Department regulations.  The entries in the Participant Registrar shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary.

Section 9.05    Voting Rights of Participants.  The Lender shall retain the sole right to approve, without the consent of any Participant, any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of the Facility Documents other than any amendment, modification, or waiver with respect to any Loan or Available Facility Amount in which such Participant has an interest which forgives principal, interest, or fees or reduces the interest rate or fees payable with respect to any such Loan or Available Facility Amount, extends the Wind Down Date, postpones any date fixed for any regularly scheduled payment of principal of, or interest or fees on, any such Loan or Available Facility Amount or releases all or substantially all of the Collateral (other than as expressly permitted pursuant to the Facility Documents).

ARTICLE X

INDEMNIFICATION

Section 10.01  Indemnities by the Borrower.  Without limiting any other rights which any such Person may have hereunder or under applicable law, the Borrower hereby agrees to indemnify, the Lender, its Affiliates, successors, permitted transferees and assigns and all officers, directors, shareholders, controlling persons, employees and agents of any of the foregoing (each an “Indemnified Party”), forthwith on demand, from and against any and all damages, losses, claims, liabilities and related costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees and disbursements (all of the foregoing being collectively referred to as “Indemnified Amounts”) awarded against or incurred by any of them arising out of or as a result of this Agreement, the other Facility Documents, or any transaction contemplated hereby or thereby excluding, however, (a) Indemnified Amounts to the extent a court of competent jurisdiction determines that they resulted from gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct on the part of such Indemnified Party, (b) in the event that the Lender has assigned its rights or delegated its obligations in respect of this Agreement, and the Indemnified Amounts with respect to such assignee exceed the Indemnified Amounts that would otherwise have been payable by the Borrower to the Lender, the amount of such excess, (c) taxes expressly excluded from Taxes in Section 3.02(a) above (other than any such Taxes that are incremental and arise solely by reason of a breach by the Borrower of its obligations under this Agreement), and (d) any lost profits or indirect, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages of any Indemnified Party. In any suit, proceeding or action brought by the Lender in connection with any Collateral for any sum owing thereunder, or to enforce any provisions of any Collateral, the Borrower will save, indemnify and hold the Lender harmless from

-31-


 

and against all expense, loss or damage suffered by reason of any defense, set-off, counterclaim, recoupment or reduction or liability whatsoever of the account debtor or obligor thereunder, arising out of a breach by the Borrower of any obligation thereunder or arising out of any other agreement, indebtedness or liability at any time owing to or in favor of such account debtor or obligor or its successors from the Borrower. The Borrower also agrees to reimburse the Lender as and when billed by the Lender for all the Lender’s out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred in connection with the enforcement or the preservation of the Lender’s rights under this Agreement, the Note, any other Facility Document or any transaction contemplated hereby or thereby, including without limitation the fees and disbursements of its counsel. The Borrower hereby acknowledges that, notwithstanding the fact that the Note is secured by the Collateral, the obligation of the Borrower under the Note is a recourse obligation of the Borrower. Under no circumstances shall any Indemnified Party be liable to the Borrower for any lost profits or indirect, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages.

Section 10.02  General Provisions.  If for any reason the indemnification provided above in Section 10.01 (and subject to the limitations on indemnification contained therein) is unavailable to an Indemnified Party or is insufficient to hold an Indemnified Party harmless on the basis of public policy, then the Borrower shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Indemnified Party as a result of such loss, claim, damage or liability in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only the relative benefits received by such Indemnified Party on the one hand and the Borrower on the other hand but also the relative fault of such Indemnified Party as well as any other relevant equitable considerations.

The provisions of this Article X shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Obligations.

Section 11.10  Confidentiality.  Each party hereto agrees for the benefit of the other party that it will hold any confidential information received from the other party pursuant to this Agreement or any other Facility Document in strict confidence, as long as such information remains confidential except for disclosure to (i) its Affiliates, (ii) its legal counsel, accountants, and other professional advisors or to a permitted assignee or participant, (iii) regulatory officials, (iv) any Person as requested pursuant to or as required by law, regulation, legal process, or the rules and regulations of any Governmental Authority or stock exchange, (v) any Person in connection with any legal proceeding to which it is a party, (vi) rating agencies if requested or required by such agencies in connection with a rating, (vii) any Agency and (viii) any prospective or actual assignee or participant hereunder (including any prospective or actual credit hedge counterparty) (for so long as such party has executed a confidentiality or non-disclosure agreement substantially similar to the terms and provisions of this Section 11.10).

-34-


 

reason of such representation or warranty proving to have been false or misleading, notwithstanding that the Lender may have had notice or knowledge or reason to believe that such representation or warranty was false or misleading at the time such Loan was made

Section 11.12  Set-Off.  In addition to any rights and remedies of the Lender provided by this Agreement and by law, the Lender shall have the right, without prior notice to Borrower, any such notice being expressly waived by Borrower to the extent permitted by applicable law, upon any amount becoming due and payable by Borrower hereunder (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), to set-off and appropriate and apply against such amount any and all Property and deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final), in any currency, and any other 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 the Lender or any Affiliate thereof to or for the credit or the account of Borrower; provided, that the Lender’s right to set-off in relation to Freddie Mac Servicing Rights shall be permitted solely upon receipt of Surplus Proceeds (as such term is defined in the Freddie Mac Acknowledgment Agreement). Lender may set-off cash, the proceeds of the liquidation of any Collateral and all other sums or obligations owed by the Lender or its Affiliates to Borrower against all of Borrower’s obligations to the Lender or its Affiliates under this Agreement with respect to Borrower or under any other agreement between the parties or between Borrower and any affiliate of the Lender, or otherwise whether or not such obligations are then due, without prejudice to the Lender’s or its Affiliate’s right to recover any deficiency. Lender agrees promptly to notify Borrower after any such set-off and application made by the Lender; provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application.

Section 11.13  Guaranty.

(a)        Subject to Section 11.13(h) below, Guarantor hereby unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees to Lender the prompt payment of the Guaranteed Obligations in full when due (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise). Any such payment shall be made at such place and in the same currency as such relevant Guaranteed Obligation is payable. This guaranty is a guaranty of payment and not solely of collection and is a continuing guaranty and shall apply to all Guaranteed Obligations whenever arising.

(b)        The obligations of the Guarantor hereunder are absolute and unconditional, irrespective of the value, genuineness, validity, regularity or enforceability of this Agreement, or any other agreement or instrument referred to herein, to the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law, irrespective of any other circumstance whatsoever which might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge or defense of a surety or guarantor. Guarantor agrees that this guaranty may be enforced by Lender without the necessity at any time of resorting to or exhausting any security or collateral and without the necessity at any time of having recourse to this Agreement or any other Facility Document or any collateral, if any, hereafter securing the Guaranteed Obligations or otherwise and Guarantor hereby waives the right to require Lender to proceed against any other Person or to require the Lender to pursue any other remedy or enforce any other right. Guarantor further agrees that nothing contained herein shall prevent Lender from suing in any jurisdiction on this Agreement or any other Facility Document or foreclosing its security interest in or Lien on any collateral, if any, securing the Guaranteed Obligations or from exercising any other rights available to it under this Agreement or any instrument of security, if any, and the exercise of any

-35-


 

of the aforesaid rights and the completion of any foreclosure proceedings shall not constitute a discharge of Guarantor’s obligations hereunder; it being the purpose and intent of Guarantor that its obligations hereunder shall be absolute, independent and unconditional under any and all circumstances. Neither Guarantor’s obligations under this guaranty nor any remedy for the enforcement thereof shall be impaired, modified, changed or released in any manner whatsoever by reason of the application of the laws of any foreign jurisdiction. Guarantor waives any and all notice of the creation, renewal, extension or accrual of any of the Guaranteed Obligations and notice of or proof of reliance of by Lender upon this guaranty or acceptance of this guaranty. The Guaranteed Obligations, and any of them, shall conclusively be deemed to have been created, contracted or incurred, or renewed, extended, amended or waived, in reliance upon this guaranty. All dealings between Borrower and Guarantor, on the one hand, and Lender, on the other hand, likewise shall be conclusively presumed to have been had or consummated in reliance upon this guaranty.

(c)        Guarantor agrees that (a) all or any part of the security which hereafter may be held for the Guaranteed Obligations, if any, may be exchanged, compromised or surrendered from time to time; (b) the Lender shall not have any obligation to protect, perfect, secure or insure any such security interests or Liens which hereafter may be held, if any, for the Guaranteed Obligations or the properties subject thereto; (c) the time or place of payment of the Guaranteed Obligations may be changed or extended, in whole or in part, to a time certain or otherwise, and may be renewed, increased or accelerated, in whole or in part; (d) Borrower and any other party liable for payment under this Agreement may be granted indulgences generally; (e) any of the provisions of this Agreement or any other Facility Document may be modified, amended or waived; and (f) any deposit balance for the credit of Borrower or any other party liable for the payment of the Guaranteed Obligations or liable upon any security therefor may be released, in whole or in part, at, before or after the stated, extended or accelerated maturity of the Guaranteed Obligations, all without notice to or further assent by Guarantor, which shall remain bound thereon, notwithstanding any such exchange, compromise, surrender, extension, renewal, acceleration, modification, indulgence or release.

(d)        Guarantor expressly waives to the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law: (a) notice of acceptance of this guaranty by the Lender and of all transfers of funds to Borrower by Lender; (b) presentment and demand for payment or performance of any of the Guaranteed Obligations; (c) protest and notice of dishonor or of default (except as specifically required in this Agreement) with respect to the Guaranteed Obligations or with respect to any security therefor; (d) notice of Lender obtaining, amending, substituting for, releasing, waiving or modifying any Lien, if any, hereafter securing the Guaranteed Obligations, or Lender’s subordinating, compromising, discharging or releasing such Liens, if any; (e) all other notices to which Borrower might otherwise be entitled in connection with the guaranty evidenced by this Section 11.13; and (f) demand for payment under this guaranty.

(e)        The obligations of Guarantor under this Section 11.13 shall be automatically reinstated if and to the extent that for any reason any payment by or on behalf of any Person in respect of the Guaranteed Obligations is rescinded or must be otherwise restored by any holder of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, whether as a result of any proceedings in bankruptcy or reorganization or otherwise, and Guarantor agrees that it will indemnify Lender on demand for all reasonable and documented costs and out-of-pocket expenses (including, without limitation,

-36-


 

reasonable and documented fees and expenses of counsel) incurred by Lender in connection with such rescission or restoration, including any such costs and 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.

(f)        Guarantor agrees that, as between Guarantor, on the one hand, and Lender, on the other hand, the Guaranteed Obligations may be declared to be forthwith due and payable as provided in Section 8.02 (and shall be deemed to have become automatically due and payable in the circumstances provided in Section 8.02) notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition preventing such declaration (or preventing such Guaranteed Obligations from becoming automatically due and payable) as against any other Person and that, in the event of such declaration (or such Guaranteed Obligations being deemed to have become automatically due and payable), such Guaranteed Obligations (whether or not due and payable by any other Person) shall forthwith become due and payable by Guarantor.

(g)        Guarantor hereby agrees that until the payment and satisfaction in full of all Guaranteed Obligations and the expiration and termination of the this Agreement it shall not exercise any right or remedy arising by reason of any performance by it of its guarantee in Section 11.13(a), whether by subrogation or otherwise, against Borrower or any security for any of the Guaranteed Obligations.

(h)        Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained herein, to the extent the obligations of Guarantor shall be adjudicated to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason (including, without limitation, because of any Applicable Law relating to fraudulent conveyances or transfers) then the obligations of Guarantor hereunder shall be limited to the maximum amount that is permissible under Applicable Law (as now or hereinafter in effect).
