Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Underwriting Agreement

On March 8, 2018, OneMain Holdings, Inc. (“OMH,” “we,” “us” or “our”), as a guarantor, entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Springleaf Finance Corporation, an indirect subsidiary of OMH (“SFC”), as the issuer, and Barclays Capital Inc. and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (the “Underwriters”), relating to the issuance and sale by SFC of $1.25 billion aggregate principal amount of SFC’s 6.875% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Notes”) in a public offering made pursuant to a registration statement and related prospectus supplement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).  As further described below, the offering closed on March 12, 2018.

The Underwriting Agreement includes customary representations, warranties and covenants by each of SFC and OMH. It also provides for customary indemnification by each of SFC, OMH and the Underwriters against certain liabilities and customary contribution provisions in respect of those liabilities.

The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K which is incorporated herein by reference.

Some of the Underwriters and their affiliates have engaged in, and may in the future engage in, investment banking and other commercial dealings in the ordinary course of business with us, our subsidiaries or affiliates, including SFC. They have received, or may in the future receive, customary fees and commissions for these transactions. Some of the underwriters and their affiliates have entered into, and may in the future enter into, financing arrangements (including offerings of asset-backed notes) in which they act as initial purchaser or serve as lender to us, our subsidiaries or affiliates, including SFC and OneMain Financial Holdings, LLC, an indirect subsidiary of OMH.

Supplemental Indenture

On December 3, 2014, OMH, as guarantor, entered into an Indenture (the “Base Indenture”), with SFC, as issuer, and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”), as supplemented by a Fifth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of March 12, 2018 (the “Supplemental Indenture” and, together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”), among SFC, OMH and the Trustee, pursuant to which OMH provided a guarantee of the Notes. The Notes were offered pursuant to a Prospectus Supplement, dated March 8, 2018, to the Prospectus, dated November 7, 2017, filed as part of SFC’s Registration Statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-221391) filed with the SEC. The Notes will be guaranteed on an unsecured basis by OMH.

SFC intends to use the net proceeds from the offering of the Notes for general corporate purposes, which may include a partial redemption of the OMFH 7.250% Senior Notes due 2021 and other  debt repurchases and repayments.

The Notes will mature on March 15, 2025 and bear interest at a rate of 6.875% per annum, payable semiannually in arrears on March 15 and September 15 of each year, beginning on September 15, 2018. The Notes are SFC’s senior unsecured obligations and rank equally in right of payment to all of its other existing and future unsubordinated indebtedness from time to time outstanding. The Notes are guaranteed by us and will not be guaranteed by any of SFC’s subsidiaries or any other party. The Notes are effectively subordinated to all of SFC’s secured obligations to the extent of the value of the assets securing such obligations and structurally subordinated to any existing and future obligations of SFC’s subsidiaries with respect to claims against the assets of such subsidiaries.

The Notes may be redeemed at any time and from time to time, at the option of SFC, in whole or in part at a “make-whole” redemption price specified in the Indenture. The Notes will not have the benefit of any sinking fund.

The Indenture contains covenants that, among other things, limit SFC’s ability to create liens on assets and restrict SFC’s ability to consolidate, merge or sell its assets. The Indenture also provides for events of default which, if any of them occur, would permit or require the principal of and accrued interest on the Notes to become, or to be declared, due and payable.

The foregoing summary of the Base Indenture and Supplemental Indenture is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Base Indenture and Supplemental Indenture, copies of which are incorporated by reference in or filed with, as applicable, this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibits 4.1 and 4.2, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.

UNDERWRITING AGREEMENT

March 8, 2018

Barclays Capital Inc.
Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC
as Representatives of the Underwriters
c/o Barclays Capital Inc.
745 Seventh Avenue
New York, New York 10019

Ladies and Gentlemen:

Introductory.  Springleaf Finance Corporation, an Indiana corporation (the “Company”), proposes to issue and sell to Barclays Capital Inc. (“Barclays”), Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC (“Morgan Stanley”) and the other several Underwriters named in Schedule A (the “Underwriters”), acting severally and not jointly, the respective amounts set forth in Schedule A of $1,250,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 6.875% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Securities”).  The Notes will be guaranteed (the “Guarantee”) by OneMain Holdings, Inc. (formerly Springleaf Holdings, Inc.), a Delaware corporation (the “Guarantor” or “Parent”), the indirect parent company of the Company.  Barclays and Morgan Stanley have agreed to act as the representatives of the several Underwriters (the “Representatives”) in connection with the offering and sale of the Securities.

The Company expects to use the proceeds from the offering of the Securities for general corporate purposes, which may include debt repurchases and repayments, capital expenditures and other possible acquisitions.

The Securities will be issued pursuant to an indenture, dated as of December 3, 2014 (the “Base Indenture”), among the Company, the Guarantor and Wilmington Trust, N.A., as trustee (the “Trustee”).  Certain terms of the Securities will be established pursuant to a supplemental indenture dated as of March 12, 2018 (the “Supplemental Indenture”) to the Base Indenture (together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”).

This Agreement, the Securities and the Indenture are referred to herein as the “Transaction Documents.”

The Company hereby confirms its agreements with the Underwriters as follows:

SECTION 1.          Representations and Warranties.  The Company and the Guarantor hereby jointly and severally represent, warrant and covenant to each Underwriter that, as of the date hereof and as of the Closing Date (as defined below) (references in this Section 1 to the “Prospectus” are to (x) the Disclosure Package in the case of representations and warranties made as of the date hereof and (y) the Prospectus in the case of representations and warranties made as of the Closing Date):



(a)          Registration Statement and Prospectus. The Company has prepared and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) a registration statement on Form S‑3 (File No. 333-221391-01), which contains a base prospectus (the “Base Prospectus”), to be used in connection with the public offering and sale of the Securities.  Such registration statement, as amended, including the financial statements, exhibits and schedules thereto, at each time of effectiveness under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder (collectively, the “Securities Act”), including any required information deemed to be a part thereof at the time of effectiveness pursuant to Rule 430B or 430C under the Securities Act or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder (collectively, the “Exchange Act”), is called the “Registration Statement.”  Any registration statement filed by the Company pursuant to Rule 462(b) under the Securities Act is called the “Rule 462(b) Registration Statement,” and from and after the date and time of filing of the Rule 462(b) Registration Statement the term “Registration Statement” shall include the Rule 462(b) Registration Statement.  Any preliminary prospectus supplement relating to the Securities that is filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b), together with the Base Prospectus, is hereafter called a “Preliminary Prospectus.”  The term “Prospectus” shall mean the final prospectus supplement relating to the Securities that is first filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) after the date and time that this Agreement is executed and delivered by the parties hereto, including the Base Prospectus.  Any reference herein to the Registration Statement, any Preliminary Prospectus or the Prospectus shall be deemed to refer to and include the documents incorporated by reference therein pursuant to Item 12 of Form S‑3 under the Securities Act; any reference to any amendment or supplement to any Preliminary Prospectus or the Prospectus shall be deemed to refer to and include any documents filed after the date of such Preliminary Prospectus or Prospectus, as the case may be, under the Exchange Act.

(b)          Compliance with Registration Requirements.  The Company meets the requirements for use of Form S‑3 under the Securities Act.  The Registration Statement has become effective upon filing with the Commission under the Securities Act.  No stop order suspending the effectiveness of the Registration Statement is in effect, the Commission has not issued any order or notice preventing or suspending the use of the Registration Statement, any Preliminary Prospectus or the Prospectus and no proceedings for such purpose or pursuant to Section 8A of the Securities Act have been instituted or are pending or, to the knowledge of the Company and the Guarantors, are threatened by the Commission.

Each of the Preliminary Prospectus and the Prospectus when filed complied in all material respects with the Securities Act.  Each of the Registration Statement and any post-effective amendment thereto, at each time of effectiveness, complied in all material respects with the Securities Act and did not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein not misleading. The Prospectus, as amended or supplemented, as of its date, at the time of any filing pursuant to Rule 424(b) and, at the Closing Date, did not and will not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.  The representations and warranties set forth in the two immediately preceding sentences do not apply to statements in or omissions from the Registration Statement or any post-effective amendment thereto, or the Preliminary Prospectus or the Prospectus, or any amendments or supplements thereto, made in reliance upon and in conformity with information relating to any Underwriter furnished to the Company in writing by the Representatives expressly for use therein, it being understood and agreed that the only such information furnished by the Representatives consists of the information described as such in Section 8(b) hereof.

The documents incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference in the Prospectus at the time they were or hereafter are filed with the Commission (collectively, the “Incorporated Documents”) complied and will comply in all material respects with the requirements of the Exchange Act.  Each such Incorporated Document, when taken together with the Registration Statement as of its date, when taken together with the Disclosure Package, did not as of the Applicable Time and, when taken together with the Prospectus, will not at the Closing Date contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.
- 2 -


(c)          Well-Known Seasoned Issuer.  (i) At the time of filing the Registration Statement, (ii) at the time of the most recent amendment thereto for the purposes of complying with Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act (whether such amendment was by post-effective amendment, incorporated report filed pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act or form of prospectus), (iii) at the time the Company or any person acting on its behalf (within the meaning, for this clause only, of Rule 163(c) of the Securities Act) made any offer relating to the Securities in reliance on the exemption of Rule 163 of the Securities Act, and (iv) at the Applicable Time (with such date and time being used as the determination date for purposes of this clause (iv)), the Parent was and is a “well‑known seasoned issuer” as defined in Rule 405 of the Securities Act.  The Registration Statement is an “automatic shelf registration statement,” as defined in Rule 405 of the Securities Act that has been filed with the Commission not earlier than three years prior to the Closing Date; the Parent has not received from the Commission any notice pursuant to Rule 401(g)(2) of the Securities Act objecting to use of the automatic shelf registration statement form; and the Parent has not otherwise ceased to be eligible to use the automatic shelf registration form.

(d)          Disclosure Package.  The term “Disclosure Package” shall mean (i) the Preliminary Prospectus, if any, as amended or supplemented and (ii) each “free writing prospectus” as defined in Rule 405 of the Securities Act (each, an “Issuer Free Writing Prospectus”), if any, identified in Schedule C hereto.  As of the first time when sales of the Securities are made (the “Applicable Time”), the Disclosure Package did not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.  The preceding sentence does not apply to statements in or omissions from the Disclosure Package based upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by any Underwriter through the Representatives specifically for use therein, it being understood and agreed that the only such information furnished by or on behalf of any Underwriter consists of the information described as such in Section 8(b) hereof.

(e)          Company Not Ineligible Issuer.  (i) At the earliest time after the filing of the Registration Statement relating to the Securities that the Company or another offering participant made a bona fide offer (within the meaning of Rule 164(h)(2) of the Securities Act and (ii) as of the Applicable Time (with such date being used as the determination date for purposes of this clause (ii)), the Company was not and is not an “ineligible issuer” (as defined in Rule 405 of the Securities Act), without taking account of any determination by the Commission pursuant to Rule 405 of the Securities Act that it is not necessary that the Company be considered an “ineligible issuer.”

(f)          Issuer Free Writing Prospectuses.  No Issuer Free Writing Prospectus conflicts or will conflict with the information contained in the Registration Statement or the Prospectus, and any preliminary or other prospectus deemed to be a part thereof that has not been superseded or modified. The Company has made available a Bona Fide Electronic Road Show in compliance with Rule 433(d)(8)(ii) such that no filing of any “road show” (as defined in Rule 433(h)) is required in connection with the offering of the Securities.

(g)          Underwriting Agreement.  This Agreement has been duly executed, authorized and delivered by the Company and the Guarantor.

(h)          Authorization of the Securities.  The Securities to be purchased by the Underwriters from the Company will on the Closing Date be in the form contemplated by the applicable Indenture, have been duly authorized for issuance and sale pursuant to this Agreement and the applicable Indenture and, at the Closing Date, will have been duly executed by the Company and, when authenticated in the manner provided for in the applicable Indenture and delivered against payment of the purchase price therefor, will constitute valid and binding obligations of the Company, enforceable in accordance with their terms, except as the enforcement thereof may be limited by the Enforceability Limitations and will be entitled to the benefits of the applicable Indenture.
- 3 -


(i)          Authorization of the Indenture.  The Base Indenture has been duly qualified under the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, as amended (the “Trust Indenture Act”), and, at the Closing Date, the Supplemental Indenture will have been duly qualified under the Trust Indenture Act.  The Base Indenture has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by the Company and the Guarantor and constitutes a valid and binding agreement of the Company and the Guarantor, enforceable against the Company and the Guarantor in accordance with its terms, except as the enforcement thereof may be limited by the Enforceability Limitations.  The Supplemental Indenture has been duly authorized by the Company and the Guarantor and, at the Closing Date, will have been duly executed and delivered by the Company and the Guarantor and will constitute a valid and binding agreement of the Company and the Guarantor, enforceable against the Company and the Guarantor in accordance with its terms, except as the enforcement thereof may be limited by the Enforceability Limitations.

(j)          Description of the Transaction Documents.  The Transaction Documents will each conform in all material respects to the respective statements relating thereto contained in the Prospectus.

(k)          No Material Adverse Change.  Except as otherwise disclosed in the Prospectus (exclusive of any amendment or supplement thereto), subsequent to the respective dates as of which information is given in the Prospectus (exclusive of any amendment or supplement thereto); there has not been any development that could reasonably be expected to result in any material increase in the consolidated long-term debt of the Company or the Guarantor (other than the issuance of debt in securitizations that are non-recourse to the Company and its subsidiaries or the Guarantor (other than special purpose securitization vehicle issuing such debt)) or any material adverse change in or affecting the business, consolidated financial position, shareholders’ equity or results of operations of the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries, considered as one entity (any such change is called a “Material Adverse Change”).

(l)          Independent Accountants.  PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, which expressed its opinion with respect to the financial statements (which term as used in this Agreement includes the related schedules and notes) of the Company and Parent filed with the Commission and incorporated by reference in the Prospectus, is an independent registered public accounting firm within the meaning of the Securities Act, the Exchange Act and the rules of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.

(m)          Preparation of the Financial Statements.  The financial statements, together with the related schedules and notes, included in or incorporated by reference into the Registration Statement and included or incorporated by reference in the Disclosure Package and the Prospectus present fairly in all material respects the consolidated financial position of the entities to which they relate as of and at the dates indicated and the results of their operations and cash flows for the periods specified.  Such financial statements in all material respects have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles as applied in the United States (“GAAP”) applied on a consistent basis throughout the periods involved, except as may be expressly stated in the related notes thereto or in the Preliminary Prospectus and the Prospectus.  The financial data set forth in the Prospectus under the captions “Summary–Summary Consolidated Historical Financial Data of OMH and its Subsidiaries,” “Summary–Summary Consolidated Historical Financial Data of SFC and its Subsidiaries,” fairly present the information set forth therein on a basis consistent with that of the audited financial statements incorporated by reference into the Prospectus except as otherwise stated therein.  The statistical and market-related data and forward-looking statements included in the Prospectus are based on or derived from sources that the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries believe to be reliable and accurate in all material respects and represent their good faith estimates that are made on the basis of data derived from such sources.  The pro forma condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company and its subsidiaries and the related notes thereto included or incorporated by reference in each of the Preliminary Prospectus, the Prospectus and the Registration Statement present fairly in all material respects the information contained therein, have been prepared in accordance with the Commission’s rules and guidelines with respect to pro forma financial statements and have been properly presented on the basis described therein, and the assumptions used in the preparation thereof are reasonable and the adjustments used therein are appropriate to give effect to the transactions and circumstances referred to therein.  The interactive data in eXtensible Business Reporting Language incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement, the Disclosure Package and the Prospectus fairly present the information called for in all material respects and have been prepared in accordance with the Commission's rules and guidelines applicable thereto.

- 6 -


(u)          Company Not an “Investment Company.”  The Company and the Guarantor are not, and after receipt of payment for the Securities will not be, an “investment company” within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act,” which term, as used herein, includes the rules and regulations of the Commission promulgated thereunder).

(v)          Insurance.  Each of the Company, its subsidiaries and the Guarantor are insured by recognized, financially sound institutions with policies in such amounts and with such deductibles and covering such risks as are generally deemed adequate and customary for their businesses taken as a whole, including, without limitation, policies covering real and personal property owned or leased by the Company and its subsidiaries and the Guarantor against theft, damage, destruction and acts of vandalism.

(w)          No Price Stabilization or Manipulation.  The Company and the Guarantor have not taken nor will take, directly or indirectly, any action designed to or that might be reasonably expected to cause or result in stabilization or manipulation of the price of any security of the Company or the Guarantor to facilitate the sale or resale of the Securities.

(x)          Solvency.  The Company, immediately after the Closing Date will be Solvent.  As used herein, the term “Solvent” and “Solvency” mean, that as of December 31, 2017, after giving pro forma effect to the offering of the Securities and the use of proceeds therefrom and any material liabilities incurred since December 31, 2017, the Company and its subsidiaries taken as a whole on a consolidated basis have total shareholder’s equity that is greater than zero; provided that Solvency shall be determined excluding any intercompany debt owing among the Company’s subsidiaries.

(a)          Indemnification of the Underwriters.  The Company and the Guarantor, jointly and severally, agree to indemnify and hold harmless each Underwriter, its affiliates, directors, officers, agents and employees, and each person, if any, who controls any Underwriter within the meaning of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act against any loss, claim, damage, liability or expense, as incurred, to which such Underwriter, affiliate, director, officer, employee, agent or controlling person may become subject, under the Securities Act, the Exchange Act or other federal or state statutory law or regulation, or at common law or otherwise (including in settlement of any litigation, if such settlement is effected with the written consent of the Company), insofar as such loss, claim, damage, liability or expense (or actions in respect thereof as contemplated below) arises out of or is based upon (i) upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in the Registration Statement, or any amendment thereto, including any information deemed to be a part thereof pursuant to Rule 430B or 430C under the Securities Act, or the omission or alleged omission therefrom of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading or (ii) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in the Disclosure Package or the Prospectus (or any amendment or supplement thereto), or the omission or alleged omission therefrom of a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading;  and to reimburse each Underwriter and each such affiliate, director, officer, employee, agent or controlling person for any and all documented expenses (including the reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel chosen by the Representatives) as such expenses are reasonably incurred by such Underwriter or such affiliate, director, officer, employee, agent or controlling person in connection with investigating, defending, settling, compromising or paying any such loss, claim, damage, liability, expense or action; provided, however, that the foregoing indemnity agreement shall not apply, with respect to an Underwriter, to any loss, claim, damage, liability or expense to the extent, but only to the extent, arising out of or based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by such Underwriter through the Representatives expressly for use in the Disclosure Package or the Final Prospectus (or any amendment or supplement thereto).  The indemnity agreement set forth in this Section 8(a) shall be in addition to any liabilities that the Company may otherwise have.

(b)          Indemnification of the Company and the Guarantor.  Each Underwriter agrees, severally and not jointly, to indemnify and hold harmless the Company and the Guarantor, each of their respective affiliates, officers, directors and each person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, against any loss, claim, damage, liability or expense, as incurred, to which the Company, or any such director or controlling person may become subject, under the Securities Act, the Exchange Act, or other federal or state statutory law or regulation, or at common law or otherwise (including in settlement of any litigation, if such settlement is effected with the written consent of such Underwriter), insofar as such loss, claim, damage, liability or expense (or actions in respect thereof as contemplated below) arises out of or is based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in the Disclosure Package or the Prospectus (or any amendment or supplement thereto), or the omission or alleged omission therefrom of a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, in each case to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission was made in the Disclosure Package or the Prospectus (or any amendment or supplement thereto), in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company and the Guarantor by such Underwriter through the Representatives expressly for use therein; and to reimburse the Company and each such director or controlling person for any and all expenses (including the fees and disbursements of counsel) as such expenses are reasonably incurred by the Company or the Guarantor or such director or controlling person in connection with investigating, defending, settling, compromising or paying any such loss, claim, damage, liability, expense or action.  The Company and the Guarantor hereby acknowledge that the only information that the Underwriters through the Representatives have furnished to the Company and the Guarantor expressly for use in the Disclosure Package or the Prospectus (or any amendment or supplement thereto) are the statements set forth in the (x) first sentence of the fifth paragraph, (y) the third sentence of the seventh paragraph and (z) ninth and tenth paragraphs, in each case, under the caption “Underwriting” in the Preliminary Prospectus and the Prospectus.  The indemnity agreement set forth in this Section 8(b) shall be in addition to any liabilities that each Underwriter may otherwise have.
- 17 -


(c)          Notifications and Other Indemnification Procedures.  Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party under this Section 8 of notice of the commencement of any action, such indemnified party will, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against an indemnifying party under this Section 8, notify the indemnifying party in writing of the commencement thereof; provided that the failure to so notify the indemnifying party will not relieve it from any liability which it may have to any indemnified party under this Section 8 except to the extent that it has been materially prejudiced by such failure (through the forfeiture of substantive rights and defenses) and shall not relieve the indemnifying party from any liability that the indemnifying party may have to an indemnified party other than under this Section 8.  In case any such action is brought against any indemnified party and such indemnified party seeks or intends to seek indemnity from an indemnifying party, the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate in and, to the extent that it shall elect, jointly with all other indemnifying parties similarly notified, by written notice delivered to the indemnified party promptly after receiving the aforesaid notice from such indemnified party, to assume the defense thereof with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party; provided, however, if the defendants in any such action include both the indemnified party and the indemnifying party and the indemnified party shall have reasonably concluded that a conflict may arise between the positions of the indemnifying party and the indemnified party in conducting the defense of any such action or that there may be legal defenses available to it and/or other indemnified parties which are different from or additional to those available to the indemnifying party, the indemnified party or parties shall have the right to select separate counsel to assume such legal defenses and to otherwise participate in the defense of such action on behalf of such indemnified party or parties.  Upon receipt of notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of such indemnifying party’s election so to assume the defense of such action and approval by the indemnified party of counsel, the indemnifying party will not be liable to such indemnified party under this Section 8 for any legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by such indemnified party in connection with the defense thereof unless (i) the indemnified party shall have employed separate counsel in accordance with the proviso to the immediately preceding sentence (it being understood, however, that the indemnifying party shall not be liable for the expenses of more than one separate counsel (together with local counsel (in each jurisdiction)), which shall be selected by the Representatives (in the case of counsel representing the Underwriters or their related persons), representing the indemnified parties who are parties to such action) or (ii) the indemnifying party shall not have employed counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party to represent the indemnified party within a reasonable time after notice of commencement of the action, in each of which cases the fees and expenses of counsel shall be at the expense of the indemnifying party.

(d)          Settlements.  The indemnifying party under this Section 8 shall not be liable for any settlement of any proceeding effected without its written consent, but if settled with such consent or if there be a final judgment for the plaintiff, the indemnifying party agrees to indemnify the indemnified party against any loss, claim, damage, liability or expense by reason of such settlement or judgment.  No indemnifying party shall, without the prior written consent of the indemnified party, effect any settlement, compromise or consent to the entry of judgment in any pending or threatened action, suit or proceeding in respect of which any indemnified party is or could have been a party and indemnity was or could have been sought hereunder by such indemnified party, unless such settlement, compromise or consent (i) includes an unconditional release of such indemnified party from all liability on claims that are the subject matter of such action, suit or proceeding and (ii) does not include any statements as to or any findings of fault, culpability or failure to act by or on behalf of any indemnified party.
- 18 -


SECTION 9.          Contribution.  If the indemnification provided for in Section 8 hereof is for any reason held to be unavailable to or otherwise insufficient to hold harmless an indemnified party in respect of any losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses referred to therein, then each indemnifying party shall contribute to the aggregate amount paid or payable by such indemnified party, as incurred, as a result of any losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses referred to therein (i) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative benefits received by the Company and the Guarantor, on the one hand, and the Underwriters, on the other hand, from the offering of the Securities pursuant to this Agreement or (ii) if the allocation provided by clause (i) above is not permitted by applicable law, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only the relative benefits referred to in clause (i) above but also the relative fault of the Company and the Guarantor, on the one hand, and the Underwriters, on the other hand, in connection with the statements or omissions which resulted in such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations.  The relative benefits received by the Company and the Guarantor, on the one hand, and the Underwriters, on the other hand, in connection with the offering of the Securities pursuant to this Agreement shall be deemed to be in the same respective proportions as the total net proceeds from the offering of the Securities pursuant to this Agreement (before deducting expenses) received by the Company, and the total discount received by the Underwriters bear to the aggregate initial offering price of the Securities.  The relative fault of the Company and the Guarantor, on the one hand, and the Underwriters, on the other hand, shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether any such untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or omission or alleged omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the Company or the Guarantor, on the one hand, or the Underwriters, on the other hand, and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission.

The amount paid or payable by a party as a result of the losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses referred to above shall be deemed to include, subject to the limitations set forth in Section 8hereof, any legal or other fees or expenses reasonably incurred by such party in connection with investigating or defending any action or claim.  The provisions set forth in Section 8 hereof with respect to notice of commencement of any action shall apply if a claim for contribution is to be made under this Section 9; provided, however, that no additional notice shall be required with respect to any action for which notice has been given under Section 8 hereof for purposes of indemnification.

The Company, the Guarantor and the Underwriters agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 9 were determined by pro rata allocation (even if the Underwriters were treated as one entity for such purpose) or by any other method of allocation which does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to in this Section 9.

Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 9, no Underwriter shall be required to contribute any amount in excess of the discount received by such Underwriter in connection with the Securities distributed by it.  No person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11 of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.  The Underwriters’ obligations to contribute pursuant to this Section 9 are several, and not joint, in proportion to their respective commitments as set forth opposite their names in Schedule A.  For purposes of this Section 9, each Affiliate director, officer and employee of an Underwriter and each person, if any, who controls an Underwriter within the meaning of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act shall have the same rights to contribution as such Underwriter, and each director of the Company or the Guarantor, and each person, if any, who controls the Company or the Guarantor with the meaning of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act shall have the same rights to contribution as the Company or the Guarantor.
- 19 -


SECTION 10.          Termination of This Agreement.  Prior to the Closing Date, this Agreement may be terminated by the Representatives by notice given to the Company and the Guarantor if at any time:  (i) trading in securities generally on either the Nasdaq Stock Market or the New York Stock Exchange shall have been suspended or limited, or minimum or maximum prices shall have been generally established on any of such quotation system or stock exchange by the Commission or FINRA; (ii) a general banking moratorium shall have been declared by any of federal or New York authorities; (iii) there shall have occurred any outbreak or escalation of national or international hostilities or any crisis or calamity, or any change in the United States or international financial markets, or any substantial change or development involving a prospective substantial change in United States’ or international political, financial or economic conditions, as in the judgment of the Representatives is material and adverse and makes it impracticable or inadvisable to proceed with the offering sale or delivery of the Securities in the manner and on the terms described in the Disclosure Package or to enforce contracts for the sale of securities; or (iv) in the judgment of the Representatives there shall have occurred any Material Adverse Change.  Any termination pursuant to this Section 10 shall be without liability on the part of (i) the Company and the Guarantor to any Underwriter, except that the Company shall be obligated, solely in the case of a termination pursuant to clause (iv) above, to reimburse the expenses of the Underwriters pursuant to Sections 4 and 6 hereof, (ii) any Underwriter to the Company, or (iii) any party hereto to any other party except that the provisions of Sections 8 and 9 hereof shall at all times be effective and shall survive such termination.

SECTION 11.          Representations and Indemnities to Survive Delivery.  The respective indemnities, agreements, representations, warranties and other statements of the Company, its officers and the several Underwriters set forth in or made pursuant to this Agreement will remain in full force and effect, regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of any Underwriter, the Company, or any of its partners, officers or directors or any controlling person, as the case may be, and will survive delivery of and payment for the Securities sold hereunder and any termination of this Agreement.

SECTION 13.          Successors.  This Agreement will inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties hereto, and to the benefit of the indemnified parties referred to in Sections 8 and 9 hereof, and in each case their respective successors, and no other person will have any right or obligation hereunder.  The term “successors” shall not include any Subsequent Purchaser or other purchaser of the Securities as such from any of the Underwriters merely by reason of such purchase.

SECTION 14.          Authority of the Representatives.  Any action by the Underwriters hereunder may be taken by the Representatives on behalf of the Underwriters, and any such action taken by the Representatives shall be binding upon the Underwriters.

SECTION 15.          Partial Unenforceability.  The invalidity or unenforceability of any section, paragraph or provision of this Agreement shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other section, paragraph or provision hereof.  If any section, paragraph or provision of this Agreement is for any reason determined to be invalid or unenforceable, there shall be deemed to be made such minor changes (and only such minor changes) as are necessary to make it valid and enforceable.

- 21 -



SECTION 17.          Default of One or More of the Several Underwriters.  If any one or more of the several Underwriters shall fail or refuse to purchase Securities that it or they have agreed to purchase hereunder on the Closing Date, and the aggregate number of Securities which such defaulting Underwriter or Underwriters agreed but failed or refused to purchase does not exceed 10% of the aggregate number of the Securities to be purchased on such date, the other Underwriters shall be obligated, severally, in the proportions that the number of Securities set forth opposite their respective names on Schedule A bears to the aggregate number of Securities set forth opposite the names of all such non-defaulting Underwriters, or in such other proportions as may be specified by the Underwriters with the consent of the non-defaulting Underwriters, to purchase the Securities which such defaulting Underwriter or Underwriters agreed but failed or refused to purchase on the Closing Date.  If any one or more of the Underwriters shall fail or refuse to purchase Securities and the aggregate number of Securities with respect to which such default occurs exceeds 10% of the aggregate number of Securities to be purchased on the Closing Date, and arrangements satisfactory to the Underwriters and the Company for the purchase of such Securities are not made within 48 hours after such default, this Agreement shall terminate without liability of any party to any other party except that the provisions of Sections 4, 6, 8 and 9 hereof shall at all times be effective and shall survive such termination.  In any such case either the Underwriters or the Company shall have the right to postpone the Closing Date, as the case may be, but in no event for longer than seven days in order that the required changes, if any, to the Prospectus or any other documents or arrangements may be effected.

As used in this Agreement, the term “Underwriter” shall be deemed to include any person substituted for a defaulting Underwriter under this Section 17.  Any action taken under this Section 17 shall not relieve any defaulting Underwriter from liability in respect of any default of such Underwriter under this Agreement.

SECTION 18.          No Advisory or Fiduciary Responsibility.  The Company acknowledges and agrees that:  (i) the purchase and sale of the Securities pursuant to this Agreement, including the determination of the offering price of the Securities and any related discounts and commissions, is an arm’s-length commercial transaction between the Company, on the one hand, and the several Underwriters, on the other hand, and the Company is capable of evaluating and understanding and understand and accept the terms, risks and conditions of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; (ii) in connection with each transaction contemplated hereby and the process leading to such transaction each Underwriter is and has been acting solely as a principal and is not the agent or fiduciary of the Company or its affiliates, stockholders, creditors or employees or any other party; (iii) no Underwriter has assumed or will assume an advisory or fiduciary responsibility in favor of the Company with respect to any of the transactions contemplated hereby or the process leading thereto (irrespective of whether such Underwriter has advised or is currently advising the Company on other matters) or any other obligation to the Company except the obligations expressly set forth in this Agreement; (iv) the several Underwriters and their respective affiliates may be engaged in a broad range of transactions that involve interests that differ from those of the Company, and the several Underwriters have no obligation to disclose any of such interests by virtue of any fiduciary or advisory relationship; and (v) the Underwriters have not provided any legal, accounting, regulatory or tax advice with respect to the offering contemplated hereby, and the Company has consulted its own legal, accounting, regulatory and tax advisors to the extent it deemed appropriate.
- 22 -



This Agreement supersedes all prior agreements and understandings (whether written or oral) between the Company and the several Underwriters, or any of them, with respect to the subject matter hereof.  The Company hereby waives and releases, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any claims that the Company may have against the several Underwriters with respect to any breach or alleged breach of fiduciary duty.

SECTION 19.          General Provisions.  This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties to this Agreement and supersedes all prior written or oral and all contemporaneous oral agreements, understandings and negotiations with respect to the subject matter hereof.  This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each one of which shall be an original, with the same effect as if the signatures thereto and hereto were upon the same instrument.  Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page to this Agreement by telecopier, facsimile or other electronic transmission (i.e., a “pdf” or “tif”) shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart thereof.  This Agreement may not be amended or modified unless in writing by all of the parties hereto, and no condition herein (express or implied) may be waived unless waived in writing by each party whom the condition is meant to benefit.  The section headings herein are for the convenience of the parties only and shall not affect the construction or interpretation of this Agreement.

PARTICULAR COVENANTS OF THE COMPANY
 
The Company hereby covenants and agrees as follows:
 
Section 6.01.          Payments of Notes.
 
The Company shall promptly pay or cause to be paid the principal or the Redemption Price of, and interest, if any, on, the Notes on the dates, in the amounts and in the manner provided in the Notes and in this Indenture. Principal or the Redemption Price and interest, if any, shall be considered paid on the date due if on such date the Trustee or the Paying Agent holds in accordance with this Indenture no later than 10:00 a.m. New York City time, money sufficient to pay all principal or Redemption Price and interest, if any, then due.
 
Interest on the Notes will accrue from the most recent date to which interest has been paid or, of no interest has been paid, from and including the Issue Date to but excluding the date of payment.
 
The Company shall pay interest (including post-petition interest in any proceeding under Bankruptcy Law) on overdue principal or the Redemption Price at the rate specified therefor in the Notes, and it shall pay interest (including post-petition interest in any proceeding under Bankruptcy Law) on overdue installments of interest at the same rate to the extent lawful.
 
- 7 -


Section 6.02.          Paying Agent.
 
(a)                The Company will maintain in each Place of Payment for the Notes, if any, an office or agency where Notes may be presented or surrendered for payment, where Notes may be surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange (the “Paying Agent”). The Company will give prompt written notice to the Trustee of the location, and any change in the location, of such office or agency. If at any time the Company shall fail to maintain any such required office or agency or shall fail to furnish the Trustee with the address thereof, such presentations and surrenders may be made at the Corporate Trust Office of the Trustee, and the Company hereby appoints the Trustee as Paying Agent to receive all presentations and surrenders.
 
(b)               The Company may also from time to time designate different or additional offices or agencies where the Notes may be presented or surrendered for any or all such purposes (in or outside of such Place of Payment), and may from time to time rescind any such designations; provided, however, that no such designation or rescission shall in any manner relieve the Company of its obligations described in the preceding paragraph. The Company will give prompt written notice to the Trustee of any such additional designation or rescission of designation and of any change in the location of any such different or additional office or agency. The Company shall enter into an appropriate agency agreement with any Paying Agent not a party to the Indenture. The agreement shall implement the provisions of the Indenture that relate to such agent. The Company shall notify the Trustee of the name and address of each such agent. The Company or any Affiliate thereof may act as Paying Agent.
 
Section 6.03.          To Hold Payment in Trust.
 
(a)                If the Company or an Affiliate thereof shall at any time act as Paying Agent with respect to any Notes, then, on or before the date on which the principal of and premium, if any, or interest on the Notes by their terms or as a result of the calling thereof for redemption shall become payable, the Company or such Affiliate will segregate and hold in trust for the benefit of the Holders of the Notes or the Trustee a sum sufficient to pay such principal and premium, if any, or interest which shall have so become payable until such sums shall be paid to such Holders or otherwise disposed of as herein provided, and will notify the Trustee of its action or failure to act in that regard. Upon any proceeding under any federal bankruptcy laws with respect to the Company or any Affiliate thereof, if the Company or such Affiliate is then acting as Paying Agent, the Trustee shall replace the Company or such Affiliate as Paying Agent.
 
(b)               If the Company shall appoint, and at the time have, a Paying Agent for the payment of the principal of and premium, if any, or interest any the Notes, then prior to 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on the date on which the principal of and premium, if any, or interest on the Notes shall become payable as aforesaid, whether by their terms or as a result of the calling thereof for redemption, the Company will deposit with such Paying Agent a sum sufficient to pay such principal and premium, if any, or interest so becoming due, such sum to be held in trust for the benefit of the Holders entitled to such principal, premium, if any, or interest, and (unless such Paying Agent is the Trustee), the Company or any other obligor of the Notes will promptly notify the Trustee of such action or any failure to so act.
 
(c)                If the Paying Agent shall be other than the Trustee, the Company will cause such Paying Agent to execute and deliver to the Trustee an instrument in which such Paying Agent shall agree with the Trustee, subject to the provisions of this Section 6.03, that such Paying Agent shall:
 
 
- 8 -


                                                   (i)               hold all sums held by it for the payment of the principal of and premium, if any, or interest on the Notes in trust for the benefit of the Holders entitled thereto until such sums shall be paid to such Holders or otherwise disposed of as herein provided;
 
                                                 (ii)               give to the Trustee notice of any Default by the Company or any other obligor upon the Notes in the making of any payment of the principal of and premium, if any, or interest on the Notes;
 
                                               (iii)               at any time during the continuance of any such Default, upon the written request of the Trustee, pay to the Trustee all sums so held in trust by such Paying Agent; and

This Note is one of a duly authorized issue of securities of the Company (herein called the “Notes”), issued and to be issued in one or more series under an Indenture, dated as of December 3, 2014, as supplemented by a Fifth Supplemental Indenture dated March 12, 2018 (as amended, supplemented, or otherwise modified from time to time, herein called the “Indenture”), among the Company, OneMain Holdings, Inc. (formerly Springleaf Holdings, Inc.), as a Guarantor (“OMH,” which term includes any successor Person under the Indenture), and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as Trustee (herein called the “Trustee,” which term includes any successor trustee under the Indenture), to which Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto reference is hereby made for a statement of the respective rights, limitations of rights, duties and immunities thereunder of the Company, the Trustee and the Holders of the Notes and of the terms upon which the Notes are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered. This Note is one of the series designated on the face hereof, initially limited in aggregate principal amount to $1,250,000,000. The Initial Notes and Additional Notes shall be treated as a single class of securities for all purposes under the Indenture. The terms of the Notes include those stated in the Indenture and those made part of the Indenture by reference to the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, as amended. The Notes are subject to all such terms, and Holders are referred to the Indenture and such act for a statement of such terms. The Notes are general obligations of the Issuer. To the extent a provision of this Note conflicts with the express provisions of the Indenture, the provisions of the Indenture shall govern and be controlling.
 
Optional Redemption. The Notes are subject to redemption at the Company’s option, at any time and from time to time, in whole or in part, at a redemption price equal to the sum of (i) 100% of the principal amount thereof, plus (ii) the Applicable Premium as of the date of redemption, plus (iii) accrued and unpaid interest to the date of redemption.
 
For purposes of determining the optional redemption price, the following definitions are applicable:
 
Applicable Premium” means with respect to any note on any date of redemption, as determined by the Company, the excess, if any, of:
 
(a)          the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the note (excluding accrued but unpaid interest to the date of redemption), discounted to the date of redemption on a semi-annual basis using a discount rate equal to the Treasury Rate as of such date of redemption plus 50 basis points; over
 
(b)          the principal amount of the note.
 
The Company shall calculate the Applicable Premium and the Trustee shall have no responsibility to verify such amount.
 
Stated Maturity,” when used with respect to any note or any installment of principal thereof or any premium or interest thereon, means the fixed date on which the principal of such note or such installment of principal or premium or interest is due and payable.
 
Treasury Rate” means, as of any redemption date, the yield to maturity as of such redemption date of United States Treasury securities with a constant maturity (as compiled and published in the most recent Federal Reserve Statistical Release H.15 (519) that has become publicly available at least two business days prior to the redemption date (or, if such Statistical Release is no longer published, any publicly available source of similar market data)) most nearly equal to the period from the redemption date to the Stated Maturity of the notes; provided, however, that if the period from the redemption date to the Stated Maturity of such notes is less than one year, the weekly average yield on actively traded United States Treasury securities adjusted to a constant maturity of one year will be used.
 


Notice of any redemption will be given at least 30 days but not more than 60 days before the Redemption Date to each registered Holder of the Notes to be redeemed; provided that redemption notices may be given more than 60 days prior to a Redemption Date if such notice is given in connection with a Legal Defeasance or a Covenant Defeasance or a satisfaction and discharge pursuant to Article XIII of the Base Indenture. Unless the Company defaults in payment of the Redemption Price, on and after the Redemption Date, interest will cease to accrue on the Notes or portions of the Notes called for redemption. If fewer than all of the Outstanding Notes are to be redeemed, the Trustee will select, not more than 60 days prior to the Redemption Date, the particular Notes or portions thereof for redemption from the Outstanding Notes not previously called by such method as the Trustee deems fair and appropriate (or in accordance with Applicable Procedures of the Depositary).
 
Except as set forth above, the Notes will not be redeemable by the Company prior to maturity and will not be entitled to the benefit of any sinking fund.
 
Defaults and Remedies. If an Event of Default with respect to the Notes shall occur and be continuing, the principal of the Notes may be declared due and payable in the manner and with the effect provided in the Indenture.
 
Amendment, Supplement, Modification and Waiver. The Indenture and the Notes may be amended, supplemented or modified as provided in the Indenture.
 
Guarantees. The Notes shall be guaranteed by OMH as provided in the Indenture.
 
Denominations, Transfer and Exchange. The Notes are issuable only in registered form without coupons in minimum denominations of $2,000 and in integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof. As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, the Notes are exchangeable for a like aggregate principal amount of Notes of like tenor of a different authorized denomination, as requested by the Holder surrendering the same.
 
As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, the transfer of this Note is registerable in the Security Register, upon surrender of this Note for registration of transfer at the Registrar accompanied by a written request for transfer in form satisfactory to the Company and the Registrar duly executed by, the Holder hereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing, and thereupon one or more new Notes and of like tenor, of authorized denominations and for the same aggregate principal amount, will be issued to the designated transferee or transferees.
 
No service charge shall be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Company may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge payable in connection therewith.
 
Persons Deemed Owners. Prior to due presentment of this Note for registration of transfer, the Company, the Trustee and any agent of the Company or the Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Note is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Note be overdue, and neither the Company, the Trustee nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.
 


Miscellaneous. The Indenture and this Note shall be deemed to be contracts made under the law of the State of New York, and for all purposes shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of said State.
 
All terms used in this Note and not defined herein shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Indenture.

On March 8, 2018, SFC and OMH entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Barclays Capital Inc. and Morgan Stanley Co. LLC, as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (the “Underwriters”), relating to the sale by SFC to the Underwriters of the Notes and the guarantee of the Notes issued by OMH (the “OMH Guarantee” and, together with the Notes, the “Securities”). The Underwriting Agreement, the Indenture and the Note Certificates (as defined below) are referred to herein collectively as the “Transaction Agreements.”
 
This opinion is being furnished in accordance with the requirements of Item 601(b)(5) of Regulation S-K under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

I hereby consent to the filing of this opinion with the Commission as Exhibit 5.1 to SFC’s and OMH’s Current Reports on Form 8-K, dated the date hereof. I also hereby consent to the use of my name under the heading “Legal Matters” in the prospectus which forms a part of the Registration Statement.

RE: Springleaf Finance Corporation: Senior Notes Offering

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We have acted as special counsel to Springleaf Finance Corporation, an Indiana corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the public offering of $1,250,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 6.875% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Notes”) to be issued under the Indenture, dated as of December 3, 2014 (the “Base Indenture”), among the Company, OneMain Holdings, Inc.

2.          The OMH Guarantee has been duly authorized by all requisite corporate action on the part of the Guarantor under the DGCL and, when the Note Certificates are issued and delivered by the Company against payment therefor in accordance with the terms of the Underwriting Agreement and the Indenture, the OMH Guarantee will constitute the valid and binding obligation of the Guarantor, enforceable against the Guarantor in accordance with its terms under the laws of the State of New York.

The opinions stated herein are subject to the following qualifications:
 
(a)          the opinions stated herein are limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, fraudulent transfer, preference and other similar laws affecting creditors’ rights generally, and by general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in equity or at law);
 
(b)          we do not express any opinion with respect to any law, rule or regulation that is applicable to any party to any of the Transaction Agreements or the transactions contemplated thereby solely because such law, rule or regulation is part of a regulatory regime applicable to any such party or any of its affiliates as a result of the specific assets or business operations of such party or such affiliates;
 
(c)          except to the extent expressly stated in the opinions contained herein, we have assumed that each of the Transaction Agreements constitutes the valid and binding obligation of each party to such Transaction Agreement, enforceable against such party in accordance with its terms;

(e)          we do not express any opinion with respect to the enforceability of the provisions contained in Section 17.03 of the Base Indenture to the extent that such provision limits the obligations of the Guarantor under the Indenture or any right of contribution of any party with respect to the OMH Guarantee;
 
(f)           we do not express any opinion with respect to the enforceability of Article XVII of the Base Indenture to the extent that such section provides that the obligations of the Guarantor are absolute and unconditional irrespective of the enforceability or genuineness of the Indenture or the effect thereof on the opinions herein stated;
 
(g)          we call to your attention that irrespective of the agreement of the parties to any Transaction Agreement, a court may decline to hear a case on grounds of forum non conveniens or other doctrine limiting the availability of such court as a forum for resolution of disputes; in addition, we call to your attention that we do not express any opinion with respect to the subject matter jurisdiction of the federal courts of the United States of America in any action arising out of or relating to any Transaction Agreement; and

(h)          to the extent that any opinion relates to the enforceability of the choice of New York law and choice of New York forum provisions contained in any Transaction Agreement, the opinions stated herein are subject to the qualification that such enforceability may be subject to, in each case, (i) the exceptions and limitations in New York General Obligations Law sections 5-1401 and 5-1402 and (ii) principles of comity and constitutionality.
 
In addition, in rendering the foregoing opinions we have assumed that, at all applicable times:

(a)          the Company (i) was duly incorporated and was validly existing and in good standing, (ii) had requisite legal status and legal capacity under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization and (iii) has complied and will comply with all aspects of the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization in connection with the transactions contemplated by, and the performance of its obligations under, the Transaction Agreements;

(b)          the Company had the corporate power and authority to execute, deliver and perform all its obligations under each of the Transaction Agreements;

(c)          each of the Transaction Agreements had been duly authorized, executed and delivered by all requisite corporate action on the part of the Company;

(e)          neither the execution and delivery by the Company or the Guarantor of the Transaction Agreements to which the Company or the Guarantor is a party nor the performance by the Company and the Guarantor of their obligations thereunder, including the issuance and sale of the Securities contemplated thereby, required or will require the consent, approval, licensing or authorization of, or any filing, recording or registration with, any governmental authority under any law, rule or regulation of any jurisdiction.
