Upon any such reduction in the Purchase Limit, the Group Purchase Limits shall be permanently reduced by a corresponding amount (ratably among the Purchase Groups in accordance with the Purchase Group Shares) and the Commitment of each Committed Purchaser in each Purchase Group shall be ratably reduced in accordance with such Committed Purchaser’s Pro Rata Share. Each partial reduction of the Purchase Limit shall be in an amount equal to $5,000,000 or an integral multiple thereof.
(c)    The Seller may, upon at least thirty (30) days’ (or such shorter period as the Administrative Agent and the Managing Agents may agree) prior written notice to the Administrative Agent (and the Administrative Agent shall promptly forward such written notice to each Managing Agent), cause an increase in the Purchase Limit, upon satisfaction of the

2



following conditions: (i) the Seller shall offer each Purchase Group the right to increase its Group Purchase Limit by its ratable share of the increase in the Purchase Limit; (ii) if any Purchase Group elects not to increase its Group Purchase Limit pursuant to clause (i) above, the Seller shall offer such Purchase Group’s portion to the other Purchase Groups, or another Purchaser in a new Purchase Group; (iii) each new Ownership Group, if any, shall execute a joinder agreement in a form reasonably acceptable to the Seller and the Administrative Agent; (iv) no Amortization Event or Potential Amortization Event shall have occurred and be continuing; and (v) the Purchase Limit shall not exceed $1,000,000,000 immediately after giving effect to any such increase. Schedule A to this Agreement shall be deemed to be amended in connection with any such increase to add each new Purchase Group (if any), to reflect the Group Purchase Limit of each Purchaser Group with a new or increasing Group Purchase Limit. The Seller shall repay or cause to be repaid through the applicable joinder agreement any Capital outstanding on the effective date of any such increase (and pay any outstanding fees due hereunder or under any Fee Letter) to the extent necessary to keep the outstanding Capital of the Purchasers in each Purchase Group equal to such Purchase Group’s ratable share (after giving effect to the increase in any Group Purchase Limit pursuant to this Section 1.1(c)).
(d)    The Purchaser Interest shall be initially computed on the date hereof. Thereafter, until the Facility Termination Date, the Purchaser Interest shall be automatically recomputed (or deemed to be recomputed) on each Business Day (after giving effect to any Purchase, if any, on such Business Day); it being understood that, for purposes of such calculation, the Net Receivables Balance (and all components thereof) shall be determined on each Business Day based on the information set forth in the Monthly Report, Weekly Report or Daily Report most recently delivered (other than after an Amortization Event has occurred and is continuing and a notice thereof has been delivered by the Administrative Agent to the Seller and the Servicer to compute such Net Receivables Balance (and all components thereof) on each such Business Day) pursuant to this Agreement and Net Receivables Balance (and the components thereof) shall not be required to be recalculated as of each Business Day. Subject to the following sentence, from and after the Amortization Date, the Purchaser Interest shall be deemed to be 100%. The Purchaser Interest shall become zero on the Final Payout Date.
Section 1.2.    Increases.
(a)    Incremental Purchases. Seller shall provide the Administrative Agent (and the Administrative Agent shall promptly forward such written notice to each Managing Agent and notify each Managing Agent of its Purchase Group’s Purchase Group Share of such Incremental Purchase) with at least one (1) Business Day’s (or, in the case of a request for an Incremental Purchase to be funded with Tranche Funded Commercial Paper which is to replace Pooled Commercial Paper, seven (7) days’) prior written notice in a form set forth as Exhibit II‑A hereto of each Incremental Purchase (a “Purchase Notice”); provided, that, with respect to any Incremental Purchase to satisfy any outstanding Reimbursement Obligations (other than an Incremental Purchase funded with Tranche Funded Commercial Paper), Seller may provide notice of such Incremental Purchase on the day of such Incremental Purchase if such notice is provided before 10:00 a.m. (New York time). Each Purchase Notice shall be subject to Section 6.2 hereof and, except as set forth below, shall be irrevocable and shall specify (a) the aggregate requested Purchase Price (which shall not be less than $5,000,000) and date of purchase, (b) in the case of an Incremental Purchase to be funded by the Committed Purchasers, the requested

3



Interest Rate and (c) in the case of an Incremental Purchase to be funded by Tranche Funded Commercial Paper or by the Committed Purchasers, the Tranche Period. Following receipt of a Purchase Notice, each Managing Agent from the Commercial Paper Purchase Groups will determine whether the Conduit Purchasers in its Purchase Group (if any) agree to participate in the requested Incremental Purchase. In the event that a Purchase Group has more than one Conduit Purchaser, the related Managing Agent may allocate the related Purchase Group Share of the Purchase Price for Incremental Purchases among such Conduit Purchasers in its sole discretion. If the Conduit Purchasers in any Commercial Paper Purchase Group decline to participate in an Incremental Purchase, the Managing Agent for such Purchase Group shall notify Seller and Seller may cancel the Purchase Notice in its entirety or, in the absence of such a cancellation, the applicable Purchase Group Share of the requested Incremental Purchase shall be made by the related Committed Purchaser(s) in its related Purchase Group ratably in accordance with their Pro Rata Shares. On the date of each Incremental Purchase (other than to the extent that the proceeds of such Incremental Purchase are being used to satisfy outstanding Reimbursement Obligations which shall be funded in accordance with Section 1.5(f)), upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions precedent set forth in Article VI, the applicable Purchasers in each Purchase Group shall initiate a wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account specified by Seller, no later than 12:00 noon (New York time), in an aggregate amount equal to such Purchase Group’s Purchase Group Share of the Purchase Price for such Incremental Purchase. In no event shall the Purchasers be obligated to make more than fifteen (15) Incremental Purchases requested by Seller during any calendar month.
(b)    Delayed Purchases. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, at any time after the Seller delivers a Purchase Notice pursuant to this Section 1.2 and prior to the date of the requested Purchase, any Managing Agent of a Delayed Funding Purchase Group may notify the Seller, the Servicer, and the Administrative Agent in writing (a “Delayed Purchase Notification”) of its intention to purchase all or any portion of its related Purchase Group Share of such Incremental Purchase (the “Delayed Purchase Price”) on the Delayed Purchase Date with respect to such Purchase Notice rather than on the requested date of such Incremental Purchase. In the event a Managing Agent of a Delayed Funding Purchase Group delivers a Delayed Purchase Notification: (i) the Seller may at any time prior to the Delayed Purchase Date rescind the Purchase Notice partially or in its entirety (and if partially, pro rata among the Purchase Groups in accordance with the terms of this Agreement), and (ii) the Seller may, in its sole discretion, upon notice to such Managing Agent and the Administrative Agent, require each Purchaser in such Managing Agent’s Purchase Group to assign and delegate, without recourse all of its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement to an assignee in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 12.4 of this Agreement. In the absence of a rescission by the Seller pursuant to clause (i) above, (A) the Committed Purchasers in the Purchase Groups which did not elect to defer the Incremental Purchase shall be obligated to fund their respective Purchase Group Shares of such Incremental Purchase on the applicable requested date of the Incremental Purchase as specified in the Purchase Notice and the Committed Purchasers in the Purchase Group which elected to defer the Incremental Purchase shall be obligated to fund the Delayed Purchase Price on the applicable Delayed Purchase Date and (B) the applicable Delayed Purchase Price shall not be taken into account in determining the Purchaser Interest of any applicable Delayed Funding Purchase Group until such time as it has been funded other than for purposes of calculating such Delayed Funding Purchase Group’s available Group Purchase Limit. The Managing Agent of any Purchase Group that is not a

4



Delayed Funding Purchase Group may elect to identify such Purchase Group as a Delayed Funding Purchase Group by providing 60 days’ prior written notice to the Seller, the Servicer, and the Administrative Agent of such election.
Section 1.3.    Decreases. Seller shall provide the Administrative Agent (and the Administrative Agent shall promptly forward such written notice to each Managing Agent and notify each Managing Agent of its Purchase Group’s Purchase Group Share of such reduction) with prior written notice in conformity with the Required Notice Period (a “Reduction Notice”) of any proposed reduction of Aggregate Capital from Collections. Such Reduction Notice shall designate (i) the proposed date upon which any such reduction of Aggregate Capital shall occur (which date shall give effect to the applicable Required Notice Period), and (ii) the amount of Aggregate Capital to be reduced (the “Aggregate Reduction”). Each Aggregate Reduction shall be distributed ratably by the Administrative Agent to each Purchase Group based upon the Capital held by each Purchase Group, and shall be applied by each Managing Agent to the Capital of the Purchasers in such Managing Agent’s Purchase Group as directed by Seller (x) to the Capital of the Committed Purchasers in such Purchase Group ratably in accordance with the amount of Capital of such Committed Purchasers and/or (y) to the Capital of the Conduit Purchasers in such Purchase Group ratably in accordance with the Capital of such Conduit Purchasers. Only one (1) Reduction Notice shall be outstanding at any time. No Aggregate Reduction will be made following the occurrence of the Amortization Date without the consent of the Administrative Agent.
Section 1.4.    Payment Requirements. All amounts to be paid or deposited by any Seller Party pursuant to any provision of this Agreement shall be paid or deposited in accordance with the terms hereof no later than 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on the day when due in immediately available funds, and if not received by 11:00 a.m. (New York time) shall be deemed to be received on the next succeeding Business Day. Amounts payable to the Administrative Agent for its own account shall be paid to the Administrative Agent at the account specified by the Administrative Agent to Seller from time to time. Amounts payable to any Purchaser or L/C Issuer shall be paid to the Administrative Agent to an account specified by the Administrative Agent to Seller from time to time, and the Administrative Agent shall promptly forward such amounts to the Managing Agent for such Purchaser’s or L/C Issuer’s Purchase Group, for the account of such Purchaser or L/C Issuer, as applicable, at the account specified by such Managing Agent from time to time. All computations of Yield, per annum fees calculated as part of any CP Costs, per annum fees hereunder and per annum fees under the Fee Letter shall be made on the basis of a year of 360 days for the actual number of days elapsed; provided, that computations of Yield which accrues by reference to the Prime Rate shall be made on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days in the case of a leap year) for the actual number of days elapsed. If any amount hereunder shall be payable on a day which is not a Business Day, such amount shall be payable on the next succeeding Business Day.
Section 1.5.    Letter of Credit Subfacility.
(a)    Generally. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the L/C Issuers shall issue Letters of Credit requested by Seller from time to time; provided, that no Letter of Credit shall be issued, amended, renewed or extended if, after giving effect to such issuance, amendment, renewal or extension (i) the L/C Undrawn Amount would exceed an amount equal

5



to the Purchase Limit minus the Aggregate Capital, (ii) the L/C Obligations would exceed the L/C Sublimit, (iii) the sum of the Aggregate Capital and the L/C Undrawn Amount would exceed the aggregate Commitments or (iv) the portion of the L/C Obligations attributable to Letters of Credit of any L/C Issuer would exceed its related Group L/C Sublimit.
(b)    Letter of Credit Requests. To request an issuance of a Letter of Credit (or the amendment, renewal or extension of an outstanding Letter of Credit issued by any L/C Issuer) from an L/C Issuer, Seller shall deliver a written request therefor, substantially in the form of Exhibit II‑B hereto and which request may identify Marathon, MPC LP, or any of their respective Affiliates as the applicant or account party for such issuance of a Letter of Credit (or the amendment, renewal or extension of an outstanding Letter of Credit) (each such request, a “Letter of Credit Request”) to the Administrative Agent and the related Managing Agent of the applicable L/C Issuer not later than 10:00 a.m. (New York time) on the date that is at least four (4) Business Days prior to the requested issuance date (or the requested date of such amendment, renewal or extension of such outstanding Letter of Credit) of such Letter of Credit. Such Letter of Credit Request shall, unless otherwise agreed by the applicable L/C Issuer, be irrevocable and shall specify the face amount of the requested Letter of Credit, the account party (which shall be an Originator or an Affiliate thereof) and beneficiary for the requested Letter of Credit, the requested expiration date of such Letter of Credit, and the requested date of the issuance (or amendment, renewal or extension, as applicable) thereof; provided, that each Letter of Credit issued hereunder shall have a face amount of not less than $5,000,000; provided, further, that no L/C Issuer shall have any obligation to issue a Letter of Credit if any Committed Purchaser is at that time a Defaulting Committed Purchaser, unless such L/C Issuer is satisfied that the actual fronting exposure with respect to the Defaulting Committed Purchaser’s related Purchase Group Share of any L/C Obligations in respect of issued Letters of Credit or any potential fronting exposure arising from the Letter of Credit then proposed to be issued will be entirely covered by Cash‑Collateral (or other satisfactory arrangements with respect thereto in the sole discretion of such L/C Issuer shall have been made) provided to such L/C Issuer in accordance with this Agreement. The issuance, amendment, modification, renewal or extension by an L/C Issuer of any Letter of Credit shall be, in addition to the conditions precedent set forth in Article VI, subject to Section 1.2(b) and the conditions precedent that Seller (and, to the extent required by the applicable L/C Issuer, MPC LP or the Affiliate thereof which is to be the “Account Party” with respect thereto) shall have executed and delivered such application agreement and/or such other instruments and agreements relating to such Letter of Credit as the applicable L/C Issuer shall have reasonably requested (collectively, “Letter of Credit Application”) and Seller shall have paid, prior to the issuance, amendment, modification, renewal or extension thereof, to the applicable L/C Issuer, any Fronting Fees and Other L/C Fees due and owing with respect to such Letter of Credit. Each Letter of Credit issued in connection with an L/C Purchase or otherwise shall comply with the provisions of Section 1.5 and the related Letter of Credit Application. Seller shall have the right to give instructions and make agreements with respect to any Letter of Credit Application and the disposition of documents, and to agree with Administrative Agent, the applicable Managing Agent and the applicable L/C Issuer upon any amendment, extension or renewal of any Letter of Credit. In no event shall an L/C Issuer be obligated to issue a modification in respect of a Letter of Credit if, on the proposed date of such modification, the applicable L/C Issuer would not be obligated to issue new Letters of Credit under the terms hereof if requested or if the beneficiary does not consent to the proposed terms of the modification.

6



(c)    L/C Purchases. The related Managing Agent for an L/C Issuer shall promptly notify such L/C Issuer and Committed Purchasers in its Purchase Group of the request by Seller for the issuance of a Letter of Credit hereunder, and shall provide the related L/C Issuer with the applicable Letter of Credit Application delivered to Administrative Agent and the applicable Managing Agent by Seller pursuant to clause (b) above, by the close of business on the day received or if received on a day that is not a Business Day or on any Business Day after 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on such day, on the next Business Day.
(d)    Participation Commitment. Immediately upon the issuance of each Letter of Credit by an L/C Issuer (or an amendment to a Letter of Credit increasing the Stated Amount thereof), each Committed Purchaser shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from such L/C Issuer, a participation in such Letter of Credit (as it may be so amended) and each drawing thereunder in an amount equal to such Committed Purchaser’s Pro Rata Share of the Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit and the amount of such drawing, respectively. Such participations in such L/C Purchases by each Committed Purchaser shall constitute an agreement by such Committed Purchaser to make an Incremental Purchase under Section 1.2 in the event that the related Letter of Credit is subsequently drawn upon and Seller otherwise fails to fulfill its Reimbursement Obligations in respect of such draw at such time in accordance herewith. In the event any Letter of Credit expires or is surrendered to the applicable L/C Issuer in accordance with its terms without being drawn (in whole or in part) then, in such event, the foregoing obligation of the Committed Purchasers to make such Incremental Purchase in respect of such Letter of Credit shall expire to the extent of the face amount thereof which has expired or been so surrendered; provided, that it is understood that in the event of a drawing under a Letter of Credit which the Seller fails to reimburse, the applicable Purchasers shall make funds available to the related L/C Issuer pursuant to the terms of Section 1.5(f)(ii).
(e)    Issuance of Letters of Credit. (i) Each Letter of Credit shall, among other things, (A) provide for the payment of sight drafts or other written demands for payment when presented for honor thereunder in accordance with the terms thereof and when accompanied by the documents described therein, (B) expire at or prior to the close of business on the earlier of (x) unless a later date is otherwise agreed to in writing by the applicable L/C Issuer and the Administrative Agent, the date that is one year after the date of the issuance of such Letter of Credit (or, in the case of any renewal or extension thereof, one year after such renewal or extension) and (y) the Liquidity Termination Date; provided, that in accordance with clause (ii) of this subsection (e), a Letter of Credit may provide for the automatic renewal thereof for additional periods which shall not extend beyond the Liquidity Termination Date; provided, further, that a Letter of Credit may be issued or extended such that it expires after the Liquidity Termination Date so long as upon the issuance or extension thereof, Seller shall have provided cash­collateral or other arrangements in respect of such Letter of Credit, in an amount and otherwise on terms acceptable to the applicable L/C Issuer in its sole discretion, and (C) be in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the applicable L/C Issuer in its sole discretion.
(i)    If Seller so requests in any applicable Letter of Credit Request or Letter of Credit Application, each L/C Issuer may, in its sole discretion, issue a Letter of Credit that has automatic extension provisions (each, an “Auto‑Extension Letter of Credit”); provided that any such Auto­Extension Letter of Credit must permit the L/C Issuer which issued such Letter of

7



Credit to prevent any such extension at least once in each twelve‑month period (commencing with the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit) by giving prior notice to the beneficiary thereof and Seller not later than a day (the “Non‑Extension Notice Date”) in each such twelve‑month period to be agreed upon at the time such Letter of Credit is issued. Unless otherwise directed by an L/C Issuer, Seller shall not be required to make a specific request to the applicable L/C Issuer for any such extension. Once an Auto‑Extension Letter of Credit has been issued, the Purchasers shall be deemed to have authorized (but may not require) the L/C Issuer to permit the extension of such Letter of Credit at any time to an expiry date not later than the Liquidity Termination Date; provided, however, that no L/C Issuer shall permit any such extension if (A) such L/C Issuer has determined that it would not be permitted, or would have no obligation, at such time to issue such Letter of Credit in its revised form (as extended) under the terms hereof, or (B) it has received notice (which may be by telephone or in writing) on or before the day that is seven (7) Business Days before the Non‑Extension Notice Date from the Administrative Agent, any Purchaser or any Seller Party that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Section 6.2 is not then satisfied and directing such L/C Issuer not to permit such extension; provided, further, that an Auto‑Extension Letter of Credit may be issued or extended such that it expires after the Liquidity Termination Date so long as upon the issuance or extension thereof, Seller shall have provided cash‑collateral or other arrangements in respect of such Letter of Credit, in an amount and otherwise on terms acceptable to the applicable L/C Issuer in its sole discretion.
(ii)    Each L/C Issuer may, at its election (or as required by the Administrative Agent at the direction of the Required Managing Agents), deliver any notices of termination or other communications to any Letter of Credit beneficiary, and take any other action as necessary or appropriate, at any time and from time to time, in order to cause the expiry date of any Auto‑Extension Letter of Credit issued by such L/C Issuer to be a date not later than the Liquidity Termination Date.
(iii)    Seller hereby authorizes and directs each L/C Issuer to name MPC LP (or any Affiliate of MPC LP designated by MPC LP pursuant to the Receivables Sale Agreement or the Receivables Transfer Agreement, as applicable, and specified to the applicable L/C Issuer in the Letter of Credit Request) as the “Account Party” of each Letter of Credit.
(f)    Letter of Credit Participations; Disbursements, Reimbursement.
(i)    In the event of any request for a drawing under a Letter of Credit issued by a L/C Issuer by the beneficiary thereof, the applicable L/C Issuer will promptly notify Administrative Agent, each Managing Agent and Seller of such request. Seller shall reimburse the applicable L/C Issuer, by paying to the Administrative Agent (and the Administrative Agent shall promptly forward such amounts to such L/C Issuer) in an amount equal to the amount paid by such L/C Issuer thereunder in respect of such drawing not later than (a) 2:00 p.m. (New York time) on the date on which such drawing is paid by such L/C Issuer (the “Drawing Date”), if Seller shall have received notice of such drawing prior to 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on such Drawing Date or (b) 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on the Business Day immediately following the Drawing Date (or the date on which Seller shall have received such notice), if Seller shall have received notice of such drawing after 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on the Drawing Date (or such other date). In the event Seller fails to reimburse the applicable L/C Issuer for the full amount of any drawing under any Letter of Credit by payment to the Administrative Agent as and when

8



required in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence, then the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Managing Agent thereof, and Seller shall be deemed to have requested that an Incremental Purchase be made ratably by the Purchase Groups to be disbursed on the date of delivery of such notice with respect to such Letter of Credit in accordance with Section 1.2. Any notice given by an L/C Issuer pursuant to this Section may be oral if immediately confirmed in writing by the Administrative Agent; provided that the lack of such an immediate confirmation shall not affect the conclusiveness or binding effect of such notice.
(ii)    Upon any notice of the failure by Seller to reimburse an L/C Issuer given to the Managing Agents pursuant to clause (i) above, (a) in the case of Commercial Paper Purchase Groups the Conduit Purchasers may, each at its option, and the related Committed Purchasers shall if the applicable Conduit Purchasers decline to, make available to the applicable L/C Issuer an amount in immediately available funds equal to the related Purchase Group Share of the amount of such unreimbursed drawing and (b) in the case of Balance Sheet Purchase Groups the related Committed Purchaser shall make available to the applicable L/C Issuer an amount in immediately available funds equal to the related Purchase Group Share of the amount of such unreimbursed drawing, whereupon each Committed Purchaser or Conduit Purchaser, as applicable, shall each be deemed to have made an Incremental Purchase in such amount. If any Committed Purchaser so notified fails to (and its related Conduit Purchaser has elected not to) make available to such L/C Issuer the amount of such Committed Purchaser’s Pro Rata Share of such amount by no later than 2:00 p.m. (New York time) on the date of delivery of such notice, then interest shall accrue on the amount of such payment owing by such Committed Purchaser, from such date to the date on which such Committed Purchaser makes such payment (x) at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Effective Rate during the first three (3) days following such date and (y) at a rate per annum equal to the Alternate Base Rate on and after the fourth day following such date. Each L/C Issuer will promptly give notice of the occurrence of the Drawing Date affecting it, but failure of an L/C Issuer to give any such notice on a Drawing Date or in sufficient time to enable any related Committed Purchaser to effect such payment on such date shall not relieve any Committed Purchaser from its obligation under this subclause (iii), provided that such Committed Purchaser shall not be obligated to pay interest as provided in the foregoing clauses (x) and (y) until and commencing from the date of receipt of notice from an L/C Issuer, the Administrative Agent or such Committed Purchaser’s related Managing Agent of a drawing. Each Committed Purchaser’s obligation under this Section 1.5 shall continue until the occurrence of each of the following: (A) the related L/C Issuer ceases to be obligated to issue or cause to be issued Letters of Credit hereunder; (B) no Letter of Credit issued hereunder by such L/C Issuer remains outstanding and uncancelled; (C) all Persons (other than Seller) have been fully reimbursed for all payments made under or relating to all of the Letters of Credit issued hereunder; and (D) the Facility Termination Date shall have occurred.
(g)    Repayment of Letter of Credit Participation Advances.
(i)    Upon (and only upon) receipt by an L/C Issuer for its account of immediately available funds from Seller (A) in reimbursement of any payment made by such L/C Issuer under a Letter of Credit with respect to which any Purchaser has made a payment pursuant to clause (f) of this Section 1.5, or (B) in payment of CP Costs or Yield on the Incremental Purchases made or deemed to have been made in connection with any such draw, the applicable L/C Issuer will pay to the applicable Purchasers, ratably (based on the outstanding drawn

9



amounts funded by each such Purchaser in respect of such Letter of Credit), in the same funds as those received by such L/C Issuer; it being understood that such L/C Issuer shall retain the ratable amount of such funds that were not the subject of any payment in respect of such Letter of Credit by any Purchaser.
(ii)    If an L/C Issuer is required at any time to return to Seller, or to a trustee, receiver, liquidator, custodian, or any official in any insolvency proceeding, any portion of the payments made by Seller to such L/C Issuer pursuant to this Agreement or any Letter of Credit issued by it in reimbursement of a payment made under any such Letter of Credit or interest or fee thereon or with respect thereto, each Committed Purchaser shall, on demand of such L/C Issuer, forthwith return to such L/C Issuer the amount of its Pro Rata Share of any amounts so returned by such L/C Issuer plus interest at the Federal Funds Effective Rate from the date of such demand (with such interest being added only in the event the return of such funds is unreasonably delayed or withheld).
(h)    Documentation. Seller agrees to be bound by the terms of the applicable Letter of Credit Application and by the applicable L/C Issuer’s interpretations of any Letter of Credit it issues and by such L/C Issuer’s written regulations and customary practices relating to Letters of Credit, though the terms of each Letter of Credit Application, each applicable L/C Issuer’s interpretation of its Letters of Credit and each L/C Issuer’s regulations and practices may be different from Seller’s own and from that of another L/C Issuer. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between a Letter of Credit Application and this Agreement, this Agreement shall control. It is understood and agreed that, except in the case of gross negligence or willful misconduct by an L/C Issuer, as determined by a final non‑appealable judgment of a Court of competent jurisdiction, such L/C Issuer shall not be liable for any error, breach, negligence and/or mistakes, whether of omission or commission, in following Seller’s instructions or those contained in the Letters of Credit issued by it or any modifications, amendments or supplements thereto.
(i)    Determination to Honor Drawing Request. In determining whether to honor any request for drawing under any Letter of Credit by the beneficiary thereof, each L/C Issuer shall be responsible only to determine that the documents and certificates required to be delivered under such Letter of Credit have been delivered and that they comply on their face with the requirements of such Letter of Credit and that any other drawing condition appearing on the face of such Letter of Credit has been satisfied in the manner so set forth.
(j)    Nature of Participation and Reimbursement Obligations. Each Committed Purchaser’s obligation in accordance with this Agreement to make participation advances as a result of a drawing under a Letter of Credit issued by the L/C Issuer under this Section 1.5, and the obligations of Seller to reimburse each L/C Issuer upon a draw under a Letter of Credit, shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, shall not be subject to any defenses whatsoever (other than the occurrence of the Liquidity Termination Date), and shall be performed strictly in accordance with the terms of this Section 1.5 under all circumstances, including each of the following circumstances:
(i)    any set‑off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Committed Purchaser may have against an L/C Issuer, any Conduit Purchaser, another

(ii)    the failure of Seller or any other Person to comply with the conditions set forth in this Agreement for the making of a purchase, reinvestments, requests for Letters of Credit or otherwise, it being acknowledged that such conditions are not required for the making of participation advances hereunder;
(iii)    any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit;
(iv)    any claim of breach of warranty that might be made by Seller, Servicer, any Originator, Marathon, the Administrative Agent, any L/C Issuer, any Managing Agent, any Purchaser or any other Person against the beneficiary of a Letter of Credit, or the existence of any claim, set‑off, defense or other right which Seller, Servicer, any Originator, Marathon, the Administrative Agent, any L/C Issuer, any Managing Agent, any Purchaser or any other Person may have at any time against a beneficiary, any successor beneficiary or any transferee of any Letter of Credit or the proceeds thereof (or any Persons for whom any such transferee may be acting), any L/C Issuer, any Conduit Purchaser, any Committed Purchaser, any Managing Agent, the Administrative Agent or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, the transactions contemplated herein or any unrelated transaction (including any underlying transaction between Servicer, any Originator, Marathon, Seller or any of their respective Subsidiaries or Affiliates and the beneficiary for which any Letter of Credit was procured);
(v)    the lack of power or authority of any signer of, or lack of validity, sufficiency, accuracy, enforceability or genuineness of, any draft, demand, instrument, certificate or other document presented under any Letter of Credit, or any such draft, demand, instrument, certificate or other document proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid, defective or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect, even if another L/C Issuer, the Administrative Agent, a Managing Agent or a Purchaser has been notified thereof; provided, that the foregoing shall not be construed to excuse any L/C Issuer from liability to Seller to the extent of any direct damages (as opposed to consequential damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by Seller to the extent permitted by applicable law) suffered by Seller that are caused by such L/C Issuer’s failure to exercise care when determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof; provided, further, that, in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the applicable L/C Issuer (as finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction), such L/C Issuer shall be deemed to have exercised care in each such determination;
(vi)    payment by an L/C Issuer under a Letter of Credit issued by it against presentation of a demand, draft or certificate or other document which does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit other than as a result of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such L/C Issuer;

11



(vii)    the solvency of, or any acts or omissions by, any beneficiary of any Letter of Credit, or any other Person having a role in any transaction or obligation relating to a Letter of Credit, or the existence, nature, quality, quantity, condition, value or other characteristic of any property or services relating to a Letter of Credit;
(viii)    any failure by an L/C Issuer or any of an L/C Issuer’s Affiliates to issue any Letter of Credit in the form requested by Seller;
(ix)    any Material Adverse Effect with respect to any Seller Party, any Originator, Marathon or any their respective Affiliates;
(x)    any breach of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document by any party thereto;
(xi)    the occurrence and/or continuance of an Amortization Event or a Potential Amortization Event;

(k)    Fronting Fees; Other L/C Fees. With respect to each Letter of Credit, Seller shall pay to the applicable L/C Issuer all fronting fees or similar fees with respect to such Letter of Credit in the amount and otherwise in accordance with the terms agreed in writing between Seller and such L/C Issuer (the “Fronting Fees”). Seller shall pay all Fronting Fees accrued through and including the last day of each calendar month, as reflected in an invoice delivered to Seller by such L/C Issuer not later than five (5) Business Days prior to the applicable Monthly Settlement Date, in arrears, on the Monthly Settlement Date immediately succeeding the end of such calendar month. Seller shall pay to each L/C Issuer, in addition to all other amounts due hereunder, all customary expenses incurred by each L/C Issuer in connection with each Letter of Credit issued by it or the maintenance thereof and its customary drawing, amendment, renewal, extension, processing, transfer and other applicable customary fees (collectively, “Other L/C Fees”). Seller shall pay all Other L/C Fees on demand or as otherwise agreed between Seller and such L/C Issuer.
(l)    Liability for Acts and Omissions. (i) As between Seller, on the one hand, and each L/C Issuer and each other Indemnified Party, on the other, Seller assumes all risks of the acts and omissions of, or misuse of the Letters of Credit by, the respective beneficiaries of such Letters of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the respective foregoing, no Indemnified Party shall be responsible for: (i) the form, validity, sufficiency, accuracy, genuineness or legal effect of any document submitted by any party in connection with the application for an issuance of any such Letter of Credit, even if it should in fact prove to be in any or all respects invalid, insufficient, inaccurate, fraudulent or forged (even if such L/C Issuer or such other Indemnified Party shall have been notified thereof); provided, that the foregoing shall not be construed to excuse any L/C Issuer from liability to Seller to the extent of any direct damages (as opposed to

12



consequential damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by Seller to the extent permitted by applicable law) suffered by Seller that are caused by such L/C Issuer’s failure to exercise care when determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof; provided, further, that, in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the applicable L/C Issuer (as finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction), such L/C Issuer shall be deemed to have exercised care in each such determination; (ii) the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign any such Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason; (iii) the failure of the beneficiary of any such Letter of Credit, or any other party to which such Letter of Credit may be transferred, to comply fully with any conditions required in order to draw upon such Letter of Credit or any other claim of Seller against any beneficiary of such Letter of Credit, or any such transferee, or any dispute between or among Seller and any beneficiary of any Letter of Credit or any such transferee; (iv) errors, omissions, interruptions or delays in transmission or delivery of any messages, by mail, cable, telegraph, telex or otherwise, whether or not they be in cipher; (v) errors in interpretation of technical terms; (vi) any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under any such Letter of Credit or of the proceeds thereof; (vii) the misapplication by the beneficiary of any such Letter of Credit of the proceeds of any drawing under such Letter of Credit; or (viii) any consequences arising from causes beyond the control of such Indemnified Party, and none of the above shall affect or impair, or prevent the vesting of, any of any L/C Issuer’s or any other Indemnified Party’s rights or powers hereunder. In no event shall any of such L/C Issuer or other Indemnified Party be liable to Seller or any other Person for any indirect, consequential, incidental, punitive, exemplary or special damages or expenses (including attorneys’ fees), or for any damages resulting from any change in the value of any property relating to a Letter of Credit.
(i)    Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each L/C Issuer may (i) rely on any written communication believed in good faith by such Person to have been authorized or given by or on behalf of the applicant for a Letter of Credit; (ii) honor any presentation if the documents presented appear on their face to comply with the terms and conditions of the relevant Letter of Credit; (iii) honor a previously dishonored presentation under a Letter of Credit, whether such dishonor was pursuant to a court order, to settle or compromise any claim of wrongful dishonor, or otherwise, and shall be entitled to reimbursement to the same extent as if such presentation had initially been honored, together with any interest paid by an L/C Issuer or its Affiliates; (iv) honor any drawing that is payable upon presentation of a statement advising negotiation or payment, upon receipt of such statement (even if such statement indicates that a draft or other document is being delivered separately), and shall not be liable for any failure of any such draft or other document to arrive, or to conform in any way with the relevant Letter of Credit; and (v) pay any paying or negotiating bank claiming that it rightfully honored under the laws or practices of the place where such bank is located.
(ii)    In furtherance and extension and not in limitation of the specific provisions set forth above, any action taken or omitted by an L/C Issuer under or in connection with the Letters of Credit issued by it or any documents and certificates delivered thereunder, if taken or omitted in good faith and without gross negligence or willful misconduct, as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, shall not put such L/C

13



Issuer under any resulting liability to any Seller Party, any Originator, any Purchaser, any Managing Agent, the Administrative Agent or any other Person.
(m)    Termination of Letters of Credit. An L/C Issuer shall only terminate a given Letter of Credit (in whole or in part) upon receipt of appropriate documentation from the beneficiary thereof or, upon the expiration thereof in accordance with its terms and, promptly thereafter, the Administrative Agent shall return to Seller any Cash-Collateral or other collateral provided in respect of such Letter of Credit in excess of the Required Cash-Collateral Amount for such Letter of Credit.
(n)    Defaulting Committed Purchasers. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if at any time a Committed Purchaser shall become a Defaulting Committed Purchaser, and until such time as the Administrative Agent, the Managing Agents and the L/C Issuers shall have determined that such Defaulting Committed Purchaser has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Committed Purchaser to be a Defaulting Committed Purchaser:
(i)    so long as no Amortization Event shall then exist, all or any part of such Defaulting Committed Purchaser’s Pro Rata Share of the L/C Undrawn Amount shall be reallocated (effective as of the date such Committed Purchaser becomes a Defaulting Committed Purchaser) among the other Committed Purchasers in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Shares (for the purposes of such reallocation, such Defaulting Committed Purchaser’s Commitment shall be disregarded in determining the other Committed Purchasers’ respective Pro Rata Shares), but only to the extent that (x) the sum of the Aggregate Capital of all non‑defaulting Committed Purchasers plus the L/C Undrawn Amount shall not exceed the Purchase Limit and (y) the sum of each non-Defaulting Committed Purchaser’s Pro Rata Share of the L/C Undrawn Amount plus such non-Defaulting Committed Purchaser’s Capital shall not exceed such non-Defaulting Committed Purchaser’s Commitment;
(ii)    if the reallocation described in clause (i) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, Seller shall, within three (3) Business Days following Seller’s receipt of written notice from the Administrative Agent, Cash‑Collateralize the portion of such Defaulting Committed Purchaser’s Pro Rata Share of the L/C Undrawn Amount which has not been reallocated to the other Committed Purchasers under clause (i) above;
(iii)    if Seller Cash‑Collateralizes any portion of such Defaulting Committed Purchaser’s Pro Rata Share of the Letters of Credit pursuant to clause (ii) above, Seller shall not be required to pay the Undrawn L/C Fee to such Defaulting Committed Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement or the Fee Letter with respect to such Defaulting Committed Purchaser’s participation in the L/C Undrawn Amount during the period from the date of Seller’s deposit of such Cash-Collateral with the Administrative Agent and ending upon the return of such Cash‑Collateral to Seller; and
(iv)    any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Administrative Agent or the applicable Managing Agent from Seller or Servicer for the account of such Defaulting Committed Purchaser, shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Administrative Agent and such Managing Agent as follows: first, to the

14



payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing by that Defaulting Committed Purchaser to the L/C Issuers hereunder; second, if so determined by the Administrative Agent and such Managing Agent or requested by any L/C Issuer, to Cash‑Collateralize the obligations of such Defaulting Committed Purchaser in respect of any Letter of Credit (and, if Seller has provided Cash-Collateral in respect of such Defaulting Committed Purchaser pursuant to clause (ii) above, the amount, if any, of such Cash-Collateral which, after giving effect to amounts retained pursuant to this clause second, is not necessary in order for the Cash-Collateral in respect of such Defaulting Committed Purchaser to equal such Defaulting Committed Purchaser’s Pro Rata Share of the L/C Issuer Undrawn Amount shall be returned to Seller); and third, to such Defaulting Committed Purchaser or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction. Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Committed Purchaser that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Committed Purchaser or to Cash‑Collateralize Letters of Credit pursuant to this Section 1.5(n) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by that Defaulting Committed Purchaser, and each Purchaser irrevocably consents hereto. The rights and remedies against, and with respect to, a Defaulting Committed Purchaser under this Section 1.5(n) are in addition to, and cumulative and not in limitation of, all other rights and remedies that the Administrative Agent, any Purchaser, any L/C Issuer, any Managing Agent or Seller or any other Person may at any time have against, or with respect to, such Defaulting Committed Purchaser.
In the event that the Administrative Agent, each L/C Issuer and each Managing Agent shall have determined that such Defaulting Committed Purchaser has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Committed Purchaser to be a Defaulting Committed Purchaser, then the Pro Rata Share of the L/C Undrawn Amount of the other Committed Purchasers shall be readjusted to reflect the inclusion of the Commitment of such Committed Purchaser, and on such date such Committed Purchaser shall purchase at par such of the Capital of the other Committed Purchasers as the Administrative Agent shall determine may be necessary in order for such Committed Purchaser to hold Capital in accordance with its Pro Rata Share.
(o)    L/C Collateral Account. (i) The Administrative Agent shall maintain a segregated cash collateral account (such account the “L/C Collateral Account”) at the Administrative Agent into which Cash-Collateral shall be deposited as and when required under the terms of this Agreement. Such deposits shall be held by the Administrative Agent as collateral for the payment and performance of the obligations of Seller (or, with respect to Cash-Collateral deposited in respect of a Defaulting Committed Purchaser, such Defaulting Committed Purchaser) under this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents. The Administrative Agent (for the benefit of the L/C Issuers and the Purchasers) shall have exclusive dominion and control, including the exclusive right of withdrawal, over the L/C Collateral Account. Other than any interest earned on the investment of such deposits (in the event any such investment is made pursuant to the following sentence), funds on deposit in the L/C Collateral Account shall not bear interest. The Administrative Agent shall not be required to invest any funds on deposit in the L/C Collateral Account; provided that if the Administrative Agent elects to invest any such funds, the Administrative Agent shall invest such funds in one or more types of Eligible Investments, and such investments shall be at Seller’s risk and expense. Interest or profits, if any, on such investments shall accumulate in the L/C Collateral Account.

15



(ii)    Amounts on deposit in the L/C Collateral Account shall be applied by the Administrative Agent to reimburse the applicable L/C Issuer for Reimbursement Obligations for which it has not been reimbursed or, if the Amortization Date has occurred, shall be applied to satisfy other Aggregate Unpaids, provided, that the reimbursement amounts applied pursuant to this paragraph (ii) shall not cause the balance in the L/C Collateral Account in respect of any Letter of Credit to be less than the Required Cash-Collateral Amount. If on any Settlement Date, the balance in the L/C Collateral Account in respect of any Letter of Credit exceeds the Required Cash-Collateral Amount for such Letter of Credit as of such Settlement Date, then, unless an Amortization Event or Potential Amortization Event shall exist and be continuing, the Administrative Agent shall release the excess Cash-Collateral to Seller.
(iii)    Upon the declaration or automatic occurrence of the Amortization Date or, upon the request of the Required Managing Agents, after the occurrence of an Amortization Event, Seller shall Cash‑Collateralize all outstanding Letters of Credit.
Section 1.6.    Certain Reconveyances. The parties hereby acknowledge that certain Receivables may, from time to time, be subject to some form of third-party protection (including but not limited to insurance, surety bonds and guarantees) with respect to the credit of the underlying Obligor. The Servicer shall provide the Administrative Agent written notice of any claim pending with respect to any credit protection on any Receivable and shall notify the Administrative Agent of its request for release of such Receivable from the interests of the Administrative Agent (on behalf of the Purchasers) hereunder. The Managing Agents on behalf of their respective Purchase Groups shall be deemed to have automatically sold and assigned any such Receivable to the Seller and the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Purchasers shall be deemed to have released its security interest in such Receivable upon the payment by the Seller of the Outstanding Balance of such Receivable (whether by, as identified by the Servicer, a Deemed Collection or Collections in the form of proceeds from the related credit protection). The Administrative Agent shall at the expense of the Seller take any other actions reasonably requested by the Servicer to evidence the sale, assignment and release of any Receivable as contemplated in this Section 1.6. The Administrative Agent and Managing Agents will consider proposals to amend this Agreement in accordance with the terms hereof in furtherance of this Section 1.6.
ARTICLE II
PAYMENTS AND COLLECTIONS

Section 2.1.    Payments. Notwithstanding any limitation on recourse contained in this Agreement, Seller shall immediately pay when due to the Administrative Agent or the related Managing Agent, as applicable, for the account of the relevant Purchasers and L/C Issuers, the Administrative Agent, Funding Sources or Indemnified Parties on a full recourse basis, as applicable, (i) such fees as set forth in the Fee Letter (which fees shall be sufficient to pay all fees owing to the Committed Purchasers), (ii) all CP Costs, (iii) all amounts payable as Yield, (iv) all amounts payable as Deemed Collections (which shall be immediately due and payable by Seller on the Settlement Date following deemed receipt by Seller and applied to reduce outstanding Aggregate Capital hereunder in accordance with Sections 2.2 and 2.3 hereof), (v) all amounts required pursuant to Section 2.6, (vi) all amounts payable pursuant to Article X, if any, (vii) all unreimbursed Reimbursement Obligations, (viii) all Servicer costs and expenses,

16



including the Servicing Fee, in connection with servicing, administering and collecting the Receivables, (ix) all Broken Funding Costs and (x) all Default Fees (collectively, the “Obligations”). Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Amortization Event, the Default Fee shall accrue and be payable on each Settlement Date, or, if earlier, on demand by the Administrative Agent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no provision of this Agreement or the Fee Letter shall require the payment or permit the collection of any amounts hereunder in excess of the maximum permitted by applicable law. If at any time Seller receives any Collections or is deemed to receive any Deemed Collections, Seller shall immediately remit such Collections or Deemed Collections to Servicer for application in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof and, at all times prior to such payment, such Collections or Deemed Collections shall be held in trust by Seller for the exclusive benefit of the Purchasers and the Administrative Agent.
Section 2.2.    Collections Prior to Amortization.
(a)    Prior to the Amortization Date, any Collections and/or Deemed Collections received by Servicer shall be set aside and held in trust by Servicer for the payment of any accrued and unpaid Aggregate Unpaids or for a Reinvestment as provided in this Section 2.2. If at any time any Collections and/or Deemed Collections are received by Servicer prior to the Amortization Date, (i) Servicer shall set aside the Termination Percentage (hereinafter defined) of Collections allocable to each Terminating Purchase Group (which amount shall be payable on the next Settlement Date to reduce the Capital then held by the Terminating Purchasers in such Terminating Purchase Group) and (ii) Seller hereby requests and the Purchasers (other than the Terminating Purchasers) (except to the extent contemplated in any Reduction Notice) hereby agree to make, simultaneously with such receipt, but subject to the conditions precedent set forth herein, including the conditions set forth in Section 6.2, a reinvestment (each a “Reinvestment”) with that portion of the balance of each and every Collection received by Servicer (other than the Termination Percentage of any Collections allocable to each Terminating Purchase Group and Collections set aside to reduce the Aggregate Capital outstanding in accordance with Section 1.3), such that after giving effect to such Reinvestment, the Aggregate Capital immediately after such receipt and corresponding Reinvestment shall be equal to the amount of Capital immediately prior to such receipt (net of any reduction contemplated in a Reduction Notice).
(b)    On each Settlement Date prior to the occurrence of the Amortization Date, Servicer shall remit to each Managing Agent’s account its Purchase Group Share (or Termination Percentage) of the amounts set aside during the preceding Accrual Period that have not been subject to a Reinvestment or used for an Aggregate Reduction pursuant to Section 1.3 and apply such amounts (if not previously paid in accordance with Section 2.1) to reduce unpaid CP Costs, Yield and other Obligations, if any, that are then due and owing to the members of such Group (or Terminating Purchase Group). If such Capital, CP Costs, Yield and other Obligations shall be reduced to zero, (i) each Managing Agent’s Purchase Group Share of any additional Collections received by Servicer, if applicable, shall be remitted to such Managing Agent’s account no later than 11:00 a.m. (New York time) to the extent required to fund any Aggregate Reduction on such Settlement Date and (ii) any balance remaining thereafter shall be remitted from Servicer to Seller on such Settlement Date. Each Terminating Purchase Group shall be allocated a ratable portion of Collections from the Scheduled Liquidity

17



Termination Date of such Terminating Purchase Group until the Capital of all Purchasers in such Terminating Purchase Group shall be paid in full. This ratable portion shall be calculated on the Scheduled Liquidity Termination Date of each Terminating Purchase Group as a percentage equal to (i) Capital of all Purchasers in such Terminating Purchase Group outstanding on its Scheduled Liquidity Termination Date, divided by (ii) the Aggregate Capital outstanding on such Scheduled Liquidity Termination Date (the “Termination Percentage”). Each Terminating Purchase Group’s Termination Percentage shall remain constant prior to the Amortization Date. On and after the Amortization Date, each Termination Percentage shall be disregarded, and each Purchaser’s Capital thereafter shall be reduced ratably with all Purchasers in accordance with Section 2.3.
Section 2.3.    Collections Following Amortization. On the Amortization Date and on each day thereafter, Servicer shall set aside and hold in trust, for the Purchasers and L/C Issuers, all Collections and/or Deemed Collections received on such day and an additional amount for the payment of any accrued and unpaid Obligations owed by Seller and not previously paid by Seller in accordance with Section 2.1. On and after the Amortization Date, Servicer shall, at any time upon the request from time to time by (or pursuant to standing instructions from) the Administrative Agent (i) remit to each Managing Agent’s account the amounts set aside pursuant to the preceding sentence, and (ii) apply such amounts to (A) reduce the Aggregate Capital, (B) reduce any outstanding Reimbursement Obligations, (C) Cash‑Collateralize all outstanding Letters of Credit and (D) reduce any other Aggregate Unpaids.
Section 2.4.    Application of Collections. If there shall be insufficient funds on deposit for Servicer to distribute funds in payment in full of the aforementioned amounts pursuant to Section 2.2 or 2.3 (as applicable), Servicer shall distribute funds:
first, if MPC LP or one of its Affiliates is not then acting as Servicer, to the payment of Servicer’s reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses in connection with servicing, administering and collecting the Receivables, including the Servicing Fee;
second, to the reimbursement of the Administrative Agent’s and the Managing Agents’ costs of collection and enforcement of this Agreement;
third, to the Administrative Agent, to be distributed to each Managing Agent for the benefit of the L/C Issuer in its Purchase Group, if any, in payment of all amounts due and owing to such L/C Issuer from a Defaulting Committed Purchaser as required under Section 1.5(n);
fourth, to the Administrative Agent, to be distributed to each Managing Agent, for the benefit of the Purchasers in its Purchase Group, in payment of all accrued and unpaid fees under the Fee Letter (including, the Commitment Fees and Undrawn L/C Fees), CP Costs, Fronting Fees, Other L/C Fees, Broken Funding Costs and Yield then due and payable, ratably in accordance with such amounts owed to such parties;
fifth, to the Administrative Agent, to be distributed to each Managing Agent, for the benefit of the Purchasers and L/C Issuer in its Purchase Group, in reduction of the Aggregate Capital and Reimbursement Obligations then due and payable, ratably in accordance with each Purchase Group Share;

18



sixth, ratably, (a) at any time there is a Defaulting Committed Purchaser, to the Administrative Agent, to be held in the L/C Collateral Account for the benefit of the applicable L/C Issuers and the Purchasers, in an amount sufficient to Cash-Collateralize such Defaulting Committed Purchaser’s Pro Rata Share of the L/C Undrawn Amount and (b) to the extent required pursuant to Section 1.5(o)(iii), to the Administrative Agent, to be held in the L/C Collateral Account for the benefit of the applicable L/C Issuers and the Purchasers, in an amount sufficient to Cash-Collateralize all outstanding Letters of Credit;
seventh, for the ratable payment of all other unpaid Obligations; provided that to the extent such Obligations relate to the payment of Servicer costs and expenses, including the Servicing Fee, when MPC LP or one of its Affiliates is acting as Servicer, such costs and expenses shall not be paid until after the payment in full of all other Obligations; and
eighth, after the Aggregate Unpaids have been indefeasibly reduced to zero, to Seller.
Collections applied to the payment of Aggregate Unpaids shall be distributed in accordance with the aforementioned provisions, and, giving effect to each of the priorities set forth above in this Section 2.4, shall be shared ratably (within each priority) among the Administrative Agent, the L/C Issuers and the Purchasers in accordance with the amount of such Aggregate Unpaids owing to each of them in respect of each such priority. Each Managing Agent shall distribute the amounts received pursuant to clauses fourth and fifth above to the Purchasers, L/C Issuer, if any, and Terminating Purchasers, if any, in its Purchase Group ratably according to the applicable amounts owed to such Purchasers and L/C Issuer. On and after the Amortization Date, in the event that applications of Collections are made on a date other than a Settlement Date, if any Managing Agent so directs the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent shall set aside from Collections for distribution to such Managing Agent on the next Settlement Date, the accrued and unpaid fees under the Fee Letter and accrued and unpaid Yield which are (or will be) due and payable to the Managing Agents, the L/C Issuer and the Purchasers in the related Purchase Group on the next Settlement Date.
Section 2.5.    Payment Rescission. No payment of any of the Aggregate Unpaids shall be considered paid or applied hereunder to the extent that, at any time, all or any portion of such payment or application is rescinded by application of law or judicial authority, or must otherwise be returned or refunded for any reason. Seller shall remain obligated for the amount of any payment or application so rescinded, returned or refunded, and shall promptly pay to the Administrative Agent (for application to the Person or Persons who suffered such rescission, return or refund) the full amount thereof, plus the Default Fee from the date of any such rescission, return or refunding.
Section 2.6.    Maximum Purchaser Interests. Seller shall ensure that the Purchaser Interest of the Purchasers and L/C Issuers shall at no time exceed in the aggregate 100%. If the aggregate of the Purchaser Interest of the Purchasers and L/C Issuers exceeds 100%, Seller shall pay within one (1) Business Day an amount to the Administrative Agent (and the Administrative Agent shall promptly forward the same to each Managing Agent, ratably

19



based upon each such Purchase Group’s Capital which amounts shall be applied by each Managing Agent to the Capital of the Purchasers in such Managing Agent’s Purchase Group as directed by Seller (x) to the Capital of the Committed Purchasers in such Purchase Group ratably in accordance with the amount of Capital of such Committed Purchasers and/or (y) to the Capital of the Conduit Purchasers in such Purchase Group ratably in accordance with the Capital of such Conduit Purchasers) to be applied to reduce the Aggregate Capital such that after giving effect to such payment (and the application thereof to reduce the Aggregate Capital) the aggregate of the Purchaser Interest equals or is less than 100%.
Section 2.7.    Clean Up Call. In addition to Seller’s rights pursuant to Section 1.3, Seller shall have the right (after providing written notice to the Managing Agents in accordance with the Required Notice Period), at any time following the reduction of the Aggregate Capital to a level that is less than 10.0% of the original Purchase Limit, to repurchase from the Managing Agents all, but not less than all, of the Aggregate Capital. The price to be paid in respect of such repurchase shall be an amount equal to (i) the Aggregate Unpaids minus (ii) the L/C Obligations, in each case, through the date of such repurchase, payable in immediately available funds. Upon the exercise of such repurchase, Seller shall Cash-Collateralize all of the outstanding L/C Obligations. Such repurchase shall be without representation, warranty or recourse of any kind by, on the part of, or against any Purchaser, any L/C Issuer or the Administrative Agent.
ARTICLE III
CONDUIT PURCHASER FUNDING
Section 3.1.    CP Costs and Yield. (a) Seller shall pay CP Costs with respect to the Capital of a Conduit Purchaser funded with Commercial Paper for each day that any such Capital is outstanding. The Capital of a Conduit Purchaser funded substantially with Pooled Commercial Paper shall accrue CP Costs each day on a pro rata basis, based upon the percentage share such Capital represents in relation to all assets held by the applicable Conduit Purchaser and funded substantially with Pooled Commercial Paper.
(b)    The portion of the Capital of a Conduit Purchaser funded by a source other than Pooled Commercial Paper or Tranche Funded Commercial Paper (including, without limitation, each Tranche funded or maintained by a Conduit Purchaser under a Funding Agreement) shall accrue Yield as described in Article IV hereof.
Section 3.2.    CP Costs Payments. On each Settlement Date, Seller shall pay to each Managing Agent (for the benefit of each Conduit Purchaser in its Purchase Group) an aggregate amount equal to all accrued and unpaid CP Costs in respect of the Capital of each such Conduit Purchaser funded with Pooled Commercial Paper or Tranche Funded Commercial Paper for the immediately preceding Accrual Period in accordance with Article II.
Section 3.3.    Calculation of CP Costs. On or before the fifth (5th) Business Day immediately preceding each Settlement Date, each Managing Agent shall calculate the aggregate amount of CP Costs and Yield, if any, due and payable to each Conduit Purchaser in its Purchase Group for the immediately preceding Accrual Period and shall notify Seller of such aggregate amount. Such aggregate amount shall be calculated in respect of each Conduit Purchaser using

20



an estimate of the CP Costs, if necessary, for the remaining days in such Accrual Period, provided, that such aggregate amount shall be adjusted as follows: if the Managing Agent of such Conduit Purchaser shall have used an estimate of CP Costs with respect to the preceding Accrual Period, such Managing Agent shall compute the actual aggregate CP Costs of such Conduit Purchaser for such preceding Accrual Period and (i) if the actual aggregate CP Costs of such Conduit Purchaser so computed are greater than the estimated aggregate CP Costs calculated for such preceding Accrual Period, the aggregate CP Costs for such Conduit Purchaser calculated pursuant to the preceding sentence for the current Accrual Period shall be increased by the amount of such difference, and (ii) if the actual aggregate CP Costs of such Conduit Purchaser so computed are less than the estimated aggregate CP Costs for such preceding Accrual Period, the aggregate CP Costs for such Conduit Purchaser calculated pursuant to the preceding sentence for the current Accrual Period shall be decreased by the amount of such difference.
Section 3.4.    Selection and Continuation of Tranche Periods.
(a)    With consultation from (and approval by) the related Managing Agent with respect to a Purchase Group having one or more Tranche Funding Conduit Purchasers, Seller may from time to time request Tranche Periods and allocate Tranches to each selected Tranche Period; provided, that (i) no more than five (5) Tranche Periods for such Purchase Group shall be outstanding at any time and (ii) such Managing Agent shall have the ultimate authority to make all selections of Tranche Periods and the allocation of Tranches to its related Conduit Purchaser’s Tranche Funded Commercial Paper in its sole and absolute discretion.
(b)    At least two (2) Business Days prior to the end of a Tranche Period applicable to any Tranche funded with Tranche Funded Commercial Paper (a “Terminating CP Tranche”), the related Managing Agent or, upon notice to and consent by such Managing Agent received at least three (3) Business Days prior to the last day of such Terminating CP Tranche, Seller, may, effective on the last day of such Terminating CP Tranche: (i) divide any such Terminating CP Tranche into multiple Tranches, (ii) combine any such Tranche with one or more other Tranches funded by such Tranche Funding Conduit Purchasers that have a Terminating CP Tranche ending on the same day as such Terminating CP Tranche or (iii) combine any such Tranche with a new Tranche to be purchased by such Tranche Funding Conduit Purchasers on the day such Terminating CP Tranche ends; provided, that in no event may a Tranche of any Tranche Funded Conduit Purchaser be combined with a Tranche of a Committed Purchaser or with a Tranche funded with Pooled Commercial Paper. If none of the above actions is taken with respect to such Terminating CP Tranche, such Tranche shall, as of the end of the applicable Tranche Period, be funded by Pooled Commercial Paper.
ARTICLE IV
COMMITTED PURCHASER FUNDING; CONDUIT PURCHASER FUNDING THROUGH SOURCE OTHER THAN COMMERCIAL PAPER
Section 4.1.    Committed Purchaser Funding; Conduit Purchaser Funding Through Source Other Than Commercial Paper. (x) Each Tranche of a Committed Purchaser in a Commercial Paper Purchase Group, and each Tranche of Conduit Purchaser funded through a source other than Commercial Paper, shall accrue Yield at either the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the Alternate Base Rate and (y) each Tranche of a Committed Purchaser in a Balance Sheet Purchase

21



Group shall accrue Yield at the Adjusted LIBO Rate, for each day during each Accrual Period in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof. Until Seller gives timely notice to the Administrative Agent of another Interest Rate in accordance with Section 4.4, the initial Interest Rate for any Tranche transferred to a Committed Purchaser in a Commercial Paper Purchase Group pursuant to the terms and conditions hereof, or funded by a Funding Source pursuant to the terms and conditions of any Funding Agreement, shall be the Alternate Base Rate. The initial Interest Rate for any Tranche funded by the Committed Purchasers and/or Conduit Purchasers to refinance any outstanding Obligations upon same-day notice shall be the Prime Rate for the date of such funding and thereafter, Yield and/or CP Costs, as applicable, shall accrue in respect thereof in accordance with the terms of Article III and this Article IV.
Section 4.2.    Yield Payments. On each Settlement Date, Seller shall pay to each Managing Agent (for the benefit of the Committed Purchasers, Conduit Purchasers and Terminating Purchasers, if any, in its Purchase Group, as applicable) an aggregate amount equal to the accrued and unpaid Yield for each Tranche Period in accordance with Article II.
Section 4.3.    Selection and Continuation of Tranche Periods.
(a)    At any time that a Tranche which accrues Yield at the Adjusted LIBO Rate is funded or maintained by a Committed Purchaser in a Commercial Paper Purchase Group or by a Conduit Purchaser through a source other than Commercial Paper, Seller shall from time to time request, in consultation with (and approval by) the related Managing Agent, Tranche Periods for such Tranches, provided, that each Tranche Period shall end on a Settlement Date.
(b)    Seller, upon notice to and consent by the applicable Managing Agent received at least three (3) Business Days prior to the last day of a Tranche Period (the “Terminating Tranche”) for any Tranche may, effective on the last day of the Terminating Tranche: (i) divide any such Tranche funded by the Committed Purchasers and Terminating Committed Purchasers in the same Purchase Group into multiple Tranches, (ii) combine any such Tranche with one or more other Tranches of a Committed Purchaser or Terminating Committed Purchaser in the same Purchase Group that have a Terminating Tranche ending on the same day as such Terminating Tranche or (iii) combine any such Tranche with one or more other Tranches which either end on such day or are newly created on such day; provided, that in no event may a Tranche of any Conduit Purchaser be combined with a Tranche of a Committed Purchaser.
Section 4.4.    Committed Purchaser Interest Rates. Seller may select the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the Alternate Base Rate for each Tranche of the Committed Purchasers in a Commercial Paper Purchase Group and each Tranche of Conduit Purchaser funded through a source other than Commercial Paper. Seller shall by 11:00 a.m. (New York time): (i) at least three (3) Business Days prior to the expiration of any Terminating Tranche with respect to which the Adjusted LIBO Rate is being requested as a new Interest Rate and (ii) at least one (1) Business Day prior to the expiration of any Terminating Tranche with respect to which the Alternate Base Rate is being requested as a new Interest Rate, give each Managing Agent irrevocable notice of the new Interest Rate for such Terminating Tranche. Until Seller gives timely notice to the Administrative Agent of another Interest Rate, the initial Interest Rate for any Tranche transferred to the Committed Purchasers or funded by Conduit Purchaser through a source other than Commercial Paper shall be the Alternate Base Rate.

Section 4.5.    Suspension of the Adjusted LIBO Rate. If any Committed Purchaser or Funding Source notifies the Administrative Agent that it has determined that funding its interest in the Aggregate Capital at the Adjusted LIBO Rate would violate any applicable law, rule, regulation, or directive of any governmental or regulatory authority, whether or not having the force of law, or that (i) deposits of a type and maturity appropriate to match fund such interest at such Adjusted LIBO Rate are not available or (ii) such Adjusted LIBO Rate does not accurately reflect the cost of acquiring, funding or maintaining such interest in the Aggregate Capital at such Adjusted LIBO Rate, then the Administrative Agent shall suspend the availability of such Adjusted LIBO Rate and require Seller to select the Alternate Base Rate for any such interest accruing Yield at such Adjusted LIBO Rate.
Section 4.6.    LIBO Rate Replacement. If at any time (i) the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) or the Required Managing Agents notify the Administrative Agent that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted LIBO Rate or the LIBO Rate, as applicable (including, without limitation, because the Reuters Screen LIBOR01 Page is not available or published on a current basis) and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary, (ii) the supervisor for the administrator of the LIBO Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the LIBO Rate shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans, or (iii) any applicable interest rate specified herein is no longer a widely recognized benchmark rate for newly originated loans in the United States syndicated loan market in the applicable currency, then the Administrative Agent and the Seller shall endeavor to establish an alternate rate of interest (the “Replacement Rate”) to the LIBO Rate that gives due consideration to the then prevailing market convention for determining a rate of interest for syndicated loans in the United States at such time, and shall enter into an amendment to this Agreement to reflect such alternate rate of interest and such other related changes to this Agreement as may be applicable. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 14.1, such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement so long as the Administrative Agent shall not have received, within five (5) Business Days of the date notice of the Replacement Rate is provided to the Managing Agents, a written notice from the Required Managing Agents stating that such Required Managing Agents object to such amendment. Until the Replacement Rate is determined (but, in the case of the circumstances described in clause (ii) of the first sentence of this Section 4.6, only to the extent the LIBO Rate for such Accrual Period is not available or published at such time on a current basis), (x) any Purchase Notice that requests an Incremental Purchase at the Adjusted LIBO Rate, such Incremental Purchase shall be made at the Alternate Base Rate. Notwithstanding anything else herein, any definition of Replacement Rate shall provide that in no event shall such Replacement Rate be less than zero for the purposes of this Agreement. To the extent the Replacement Rate is approved by the Administrative Agent in connection with this clause, the Replacement Rate shall be applied in a manner consistent with market practice; provided, that, in each case, to the extent such market practice is not administratively feasible for the Administrative Agent, the Replacement Rate shall be applied as otherwise reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent (it being understood that any such modification by the Administrative Agent shall not require the consent of, or consultation with, any of the Managing Agents).

28

Section 8.1.    Designation of Servicer. (a) The servicing, administration and collection of the Receivables shall be conducted by such Person (the “Servicer”) so designated from time to time in accordance with this Section 8.1. MPC LP is hereby designated as, and hereby agrees to perform the duties and obligations of, Servicer pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. The Administrative Agent may, at any time after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Amortization Event, at the direction of the Required Managing Agents, designate as Servicer (i) any Person to succeed MPC LP or (ii) any successor to such Servicer that replaced MPC LP; provided, however, that in either case, no such Person shall be a Marathon Competitor.
(b)    (i) Without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent and the Required Managing Agents, MPC LP shall not be permitted to delegate any of its duties or responsibilities as Servicer to any Person other than (A) Seller; (B) one or more Affiliates of MPC LP, upon written notice to the Administrative Agent and the Managing Agents; and (C) with respect to certain Charged‑Off Receivables, outside collection agencies in accordance with its customary practices. None of Seller of any such Affiliate shall be permitted to further delegate to any other Person any of the duties or responsibilities of Servicer so delegated to it by MPC LP.If at any time the Administrative Agent shall designate as Servicer any Person other than MPC LP, all duties and responsibilities theretofore delegated by MPC LP to Seller or any such Affiliate may, at the discretion of the Administrative Agent, be terminated forthwith on notice given by the Administrative Agent to MPC LP and to Seller or such Affiliate, as applicable.
(c)    Notwithstanding any delegation of MPC LP’s duties as Servicer pursuant to the foregoing subsection (b)(i), (i) MPC LP shall be and remain primarily liable to the Administrative Agent and the Purchasers for the full and prompt performance of all duties and responsibilities of Servicer hereunder and (ii) the Administrative Agent and the Purchasers shall be entitled to deal exclusively with MPC LP in matters relating to the discharge by Servicer of its duties and responsibilities hereunder. The Administrative Agent and the Purchasers shall not be required to give notice, demand or other communication to any Person other than MPC LP in order for communication to Servicer and its sub­servicer or other delegate with respect thereto to be accomplished. MPC LP, at all times that it is Servicer, shall be responsible for providing any sub‑servicer or other delegate of Servicer with any notice given to Servicer under this Agreement.
Section 8.2.    Duties of Servicer. (a) Servicer shall take or cause to be taken all such actions as may be necessary or advisable to collect each Receivable from time to time, all in
accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations, with reasonable care and diligence, and in accordance with the Credit and Collection Policy.
Servicer will instruct all Obligors to pay all Collections directly to a Lock‑Box or Collection Account. Servicer shall effect a Collection Account Agreement with each Collection Bank. In the case of any remittances received in any Lock‑Box or Collection Account that shall have been identified, to the satisfaction of Servicer, to not constitute Collections or other proceeds of the Receivables or the Related Security, Servicer shall promptly remit such items to the Person identified to it as being the owner of such remittances. From and after the date the Administrative Agent delivers to any Collection Bank a Collection Notice pursuant to Section 8.3, the Administrative Agent may request that Servicer, and Servicer thereupon promptly shall instruct all Obligors with respect to the Receivables, to remit all payments thereon to a new depositary account specified by the Administrative Agent and, at all times thereafter, Seller and Servicer shall not deposit or otherwise credit, and shall not permit any other Person to deposit or otherwise credit to such new depositary account any cash or payment item other than Collections.
Servicer acknowledges and agrees that, notwithstanding the fact that the title of the Lock‑Boxes and Collection Accounts may include the name of Marathon Petroleum Company LP as Servicer, Seller owns all right, title and interest in and to such Lock‑Boxes and Collection Accounts and such Lock‑Boxes and Collection Accounts are so titled for administrative convenience only.
(b)    Servicer shall administer the Collections in accordance with the procedures described herein and in Article II. Servicer shall set aside and hold in trust for the account of Seller and the Purchasers all Collections in accordance with Article II. Servicer shall, upon the request of the Administrative Agent after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Amortization Event at the direction of the Required Managing Agents, segregate, in a manner acceptable to the Administrative Agent, all cash, checks and other instruments received by it from time to time constituting Collections from the general funds of Servicer or Seller prior to the remittance thereof in accordance with Article II (which, for the avoidance of doubt, shall not include amounts subject to a Reinvestment). If Servicer shall be required to segregate Collections pursuant to the preceding sentence, Servicer shall segregate and deposit with a bank designated by the Administrative Agent such allocable share of Collections of Receivables set aside for the Purchasers on the second (2nd) Business Day following receipt by Servicer of such Collections, duly endorsed or with duly executed instruments of transfer.
(c)    Servicer may, in accordance with the Credit and Collection Policy, extend the maturity of any Receivable or adjust the Outstanding Balance of any Receivable as Servicer determines to be appropriate to maximize Collections thereof; provided, however, that such extension or adjustment shall not alter the status of such Receivable as a Delinquent Receivable or Charged‑Off Receivable or limit the rights of the Administrative Agent, the Managing Agents or the Purchasers under this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, after the occurrence of the Amortization Date, the Administrative Agent shall have the absolute and unlimited right to direct Servicer to commence or settle any legal action with respect to any Receivable or to foreclose upon or repossess any Related Security.
(d)    Servicer shall hold in trust for Seller and the Purchasers all Records that (i) evidence or relate to the Receivables, the related Contracts and Related Security or (ii) are otherwise necessary or desirable to collect the Receivables and shall, as soon as practicable upon demand of the Administrative Agent, deliver or make available to the Administrative Agent all such Records, at a place selected by the Administrative Agent. Servicer shall, from time to time at the request of the Administrative Agent after (b) the occurrence and during the continuance of an Amortization Event at the direction of the Required Managing Agents, furnish to the Administrative Agent and the Managing Agents (promptly after any such request) a calculation of the amounts set aside for the Purchasers pursuant to Article II.
(e)    Any payment by an Obligor in respect of any indebtedness owed by it to any Originator or Seller shall, except as otherwise specified by such Obligor or otherwise required by contract or law, be applied as a Collection of any Receivable of such Obligor (starting with the oldest such Receivable) to the extent of any amounts then due and payable thereunder before being applied to any other receivable or other obligation of such Obligor.
Section 8.3.    Collection Notices. The Administrative Agent is authorized at any time after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Amortization Event and upon the written direction of the Required Managing Agents to date and to deliver to the Collection Banks the Collection Notices. Seller hereby transfers to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Purchasers, effective when the Administrative Agent delivers such notice, the exclusive ownership and control of each Lock‑Box and the Collection Accounts. In case any authorized signatory of Seller whose signature appears on a Collection Account Agreement shall cease to have such authority before the delivery of such notice, such Collection Notice shall nevertheless be valid as if such authority had remained in force. Seller hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent, and agrees that the Administrative Agent shall be entitled after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Amortization Event to (i) endorse Seller’s name on checks and other instruments representing Collections, (ii) enforce the Receivables, the related Contracts and the Related Security and (iii) take such action as shall be necessary or desirable to cause all cash, checks and other instruments constituting Collections of Receivables to come into the possession of the Administrative Agent rather than Seller.
Section 8.4.    Responsibilities of Seller. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the exercise by the Administrative Agent, the Managing Agents and the Purchasers of their rights hereunder shall not release Servicer, any Originator or Seller from any of their duties or obligations with respect to any Receivables or under the related Contracts. None of the Administrative Agent, the Managing Agents or the Purchasers shall have any obligation or liability with respect to any Receivables or related Contracts, nor shall any of them be obligated to perform the obligations of Seller.
Section 8.5.    Reports.
(a)    Servicer shall prepare and forward to the Administrative Agent (and the Administrative Agent shall promptly forward the same to each Managing Agent) (i) during a Monthly Reporting Period, on each Monthly Settlement Date, a Monthly Report, (ii) during a Weekly Reporting Period, on each Monthly Settlement Date, a Monthly Report and, upon the written request of the Required Managing Agents, on Tuesday of each calendar week (or if such
day is not a Business Day, on the next succeeding Business Day) (each such date the “Weekly Reporting Date”), a Weekly Report covering the period from and including Monday of the preceding week to but excluding Monday of such week and (iii) during a Daily Reporting Period, on each Monthly Settlement Date, a Monthly Report and, upon the written request of the Required Managing Agents, on each Business Day (or such other schedule as may be consented to by the Required Managing Agents) (each such date the “Daily Reporting Date”), a Daily Report covering the immediately preceding Business Day (provided, that a Daily Report covering the first (1st) Business Day following a weekend or holiday or both shall also cover such weekend or holiday or both), in each case, certified by an Authorized Officer of Servicer; it being understood that Servicer may provide interim reporting at any time and from time to time. In the event that Servicer is required to furnish any Weekly Report or Daily Report as provided herein, and if the last day of the week covered by such Weekly Report or if the day covered by such Daily Report, as applicable, occurs during the period commencing on the day of any calendar month when Crude Oil Receivables generated during the immediately preceding calendar month are payable and ending on the date of the following calendar month on which Crude Oil Receivables generated during the calendar month immediately preceding such following month are invoiced, then the computation of the Net Receivables Balance set forth in such Weekly Report or Daily Report, as applicable, shall include the aggregate amount of all Crude Oil Receivables for which invoices have not yet been issued but which would qualify as Eligible Receivables had an invoice been issued in respect thereof.
(b)    If the rating system of Moody’s or S&P shall change, or if either such rating agency shall cease to be in the business of rating corporate debt obligations, Servicer, the Managing Agents and the Administrative Agent shall negotiate in good faith to amend, in a manner acceptable to Servicer and the Required Managing Agents, the reporting obligations of Servicer to reflect such changed rating system or the unavailability of ratings from such rating agency and, pending the effectiveness of any such amendment Servicer’s reporting obligations hereunder shall be determined by reference to the rating most recently in effect prior to such change or cessation.
Section 8.6.    Servicing Fees. In consideration of MPC LP’s agreement to act as Servicer hereunder, the Purchasers hereby agree that, so long as MPC LP shall continue to perform as Servicer hereunder, Seller shall pay over to MPC LP a fee (the “Servicing Fee”) on each Monthly Settlement Date, in arrears for the immediately preceding month, equal to one percent (1.0%) per annum of the average aggregate Outstanding Balance of all Receivables during such period, as compensation for its servicing activities. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Servicer is replaced by the Administrative Agent, the successor Servicer shall receive a servicing fee in an amount agreed upon by the Administrative Agent and the successor Servicer which reflects the then prevailing market rates for servicing similar portfolios of receivables (not to exceed one hundred ten percent (110%) of the aggregate reasonable costs and expenses incurred by such Person in connection with the performance of its obligations as Servicer hereunder).

INDEMNIFICATION
Section 10.1.    Indemnities by the Seller Parties. Without limiting any other rights that the Administrative Agent, any Managing Agent, any L/C Issuer, any Funding Source or any Purchaser may have hereunder or under applicable law, (A) Seller hereby agrees to indemnify (and pay upon demand to) the Administrative Agent, each Managing Agent, each Funding Source, each L/C Issuer and each Purchaser and their respective assigns, officers, directors, agents and employees (each an “Indemnified Party”) from and against any and all damages, losses, claims, taxes, liabilities, costs or expenses, for all amounts payable, including any civil penalty or fine assessed by OFAC or any other Governmental Authority administering any Anti-Terrorism Law, Anti-Corruption Law or Sanctions, and all reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable documented legal fees and disbursements) incurred in connection with defense thereof by, any Indemnified Party in connection with the Transaction Documents as a result of any action of the Seller or any of its respective Affiliates and reasonable 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 or the acquisition, either directly or indirectly, by a Purchaser or an L/C Issuer of an interest in the Receivables, and (B) Servicer hereby agrees to indemnify (and pay upon demand to) each Indemnified Party for Indemnified Amounts awarded against or incurred by any of them arising out of Servicer’s activities as Servicer hereunder excluding, however, in all of the foregoing instances under the preceding clauses (A) and (B):
(i)    Indemnified Amounts to the extent a final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction holds that such Indemnified Amounts resulted from gross negligence or
willful misconduct on the part of the Indemnified Party seeking indemnification or material breach by such Indemnified Party of the express terms of the Transaction Documents;
(ii)    Indemnified Amounts to the extent the same includes losses in respect of Receivables that are uncollectible on account of the insolvency, bankruptcy or lack of creditworthiness of the related Obligor; or
(iii)    taxes imposed by the jurisdiction in which such Indemnified Party’s principal executive office is located, on or measured by the overall net income of such Indemnified Party to the extent that the computation of such taxes is consistent with the characterization for income tax purposes of the Purchases by the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Purchasers and L/C Issuers as a loan or loans by the Purchasers to Seller secured by the Receivables, the Related Security, the Collection Accounts and the Collections;
provided, however, that nothing contained in this sentence shall limit the liability of any Seller Party or limit the recourse of the Purchasers or the L/C Issuers to any Seller Party, any Originator or Marathon for amounts otherwise specifically provided to be paid by such Seller Party, any Originator or Marathon, as applicable, under the terms of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing indemnification, but subject to the exclusions set forth in clauses (i) through (iii) above, Seller shall indemnify each Indemnified Party for Indemnified Amounts (including, without limitation, losses in respect of uncollectible receivables, regardless of whether reimbursement therefor would constitute recourse to Seller or Servicer) relating to or resulting from:
(i)    any representation or warranty made by any Seller Party, any Originator or Marathon (or any officers of any such Person) under or in connection with this Agreement, any other Transaction Document or any other written information or report delivered by any such Person pursuant hereto or thereto, including, without limitation, the representations and warranties under Section 5.1(cc) hereof, which shall have been false or incorrect when made or deemed made;

(iv)    any products liability, personal injury or damage suit, or other similar claim arising out of or in connection with merchandise, insurance or services that are the subject of any Contract or any Receivable;
(v)    any dispute, claim, offset or defense (other than discharge in bankruptcy of the Obligor) of the Obligor to the payment of any Receivable (including, without
limitation, a defense based on such Receivable or the related Contract not being a legal, valid and binding obligation of such Obligor enforceable against it in accordance with its terms), or any other claim resulting from the sale of the merchandise or service related to such Receivable or the furnishing or failure to furnish such merchandise or services;
(vi)    the commingling of Collections of Receivables at any time with other funds;
(vii)    any investigation, litigation or proceeding related to or arising from this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, the transactions contemplated hereby, the use of the proceeds of a Credit Event or draw under any Letter of Credit, the ownership of the Purchaser Interest or any other investigation, litigation or proceeding relating to Seller, Servicer, any Originator or Marathon in which any Indemnified Party becomes involved as a result of any of the transactions contemplated hereby;
(viii)    any inability to litigate any claim against any Obligor in respect of any Receivable as a result of such Obligor being immune from civil and commercial law and suit on the grounds of sovereignty or otherwise from any legal action, suit or proceeding;
(ix)    any Amortization Event described in Section 9.1(d);
(x)    any failure of Seller to acquire and maintain legal and equitable title to, and ownership of any Receivable and the Related Security and Collections with respect thereto from MPC LP, free and clear of any Adverse Claim (other than as created hereunder), or any failure of Seller to give reasonably equivalent value to MPC LP under the Receivables Sale Agreement in consideration of the transfer by MPC LP of any Receivable, or any attempt by any Person to void such transfer under statutory provisions or common law or equitable action;
(xi)    any failure to vest and maintain vested in the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Purchasers, or to transfer to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Purchasers, legal and equitable title to, and ownership of, a first priority perfected undivided percentage ownership interest (to the extent of the Purchaser Interest contemplated hereunder) or security interest in the Receivables, the Related Security and the Collections and the Collection Accounts and Lock‑Boxes, free and clear of any Adverse Claim (except as created by the Transaction Documents);
(xii)    the failure to have filed, or any delay in filing, financing statements or other similar instruments or documents under the UCC of any applicable jurisdiction or other applicable laws with respect to any Receivable, the Related Security and Collections with respect thereto, and the proceeds of any thereof, whether at the time of any Credit Event or at any subsequent time;
(xiii)    any action or omission (other than as expressly contemplated by this Agreement or any other Principal Transaction Document) by any Seller Party, any Originator or Marathon which reduces or impairs the rights of the Administrative Agent,
the Managing Agents, the L/C Issuers or the Purchasers with respect to any Receivable or the value of any such Receivable;
(xiv)    any attempt by any Person to void any Credit Event hereunder under statutory provisions or common law or equitable action;
(xv)    the failure of any Receivable included in the calculation of the Net Receivables Balance as an Eligible Receivable to be an Eligible Receivable at the time so included; or
(xvi)    any Letter of Credit issued in connection herewith or the use of the proceeds thereof by the applicable beneficiary or any affiliate, agent, employee or assignee thereof. THE FOREGOING INDEMNIFICATION SHALL APPLY WHETHER OR NOT SUCH LIABILITIES AND COSTS ARE IN ANY WAY OR TO ANY EXTENT, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, CAUSED BY ANY NEGLIGENT ACT OR OMISSION OF ANY L/C ISSUER, ANY PURCHASER, THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT, ANY MANAGING AGENT OR THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES.
Section 10.2.    Increased Cost and Reduced Return.
(a)    If any Regulatory Change (i) subjects any Purchaser, any L/C Issuer or any Funding Source to any charge or withholding on or with respect to any Funding Agreement or this Agreement or a Purchaser’s, L/C Issuer’s or Funding Source’s obligations under a Funding Agreement or this Agreement, or on or with respect to the Receivables, or changes the basis of taxation of payments to any Purchaser, any L/C Issuer or any Funding Source of any amounts payable under any Funding Agreement or this Agreement (except for changes in the rate of tax on the overall net income of a Purchaser, L/C Issuer or Funding Source or taxes excluded by Section 10.1) or (ii) imposes, modifies or deems applicable any reserve, assessment, fee, tax, insurance charge, special deposit or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or liabilities of a Funding Source, an L/C Issuer or a Purchaser, or credit extended by a Funding Source, an L/C Issuer or a Purchaser pursuant to a Funding Agreement or this Agreement or (iii) imposes any other condition the result of which is to increase the cost to a Funding Source, an L/C Issuer or a Purchaser of performing its obligations under a Funding Agreement or this Agreement, or to reduce the rate of return on a Funding Source’s, an L/C Issuer’s or Purchaser’s capital as a consequence of its obligations under a Funding Agreement or this Agreement, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by a Funding Source, an L/C Issuer or a Purchaser under a Funding Agreement or this Agreement, or to require any payment calculated by reference to the amount of interests or loans held or interest received by it, then, promptly upon presentation to Seller by the applicable Managing Agent of a certificate setting forth the basis for such determination in reasonable detail and the additional amounts reasonably determined by such Managing Agent to compensate such Funding Source, L/C Issuer or Purchaser, Seller shall pay to such Managing Agent, for the benefit of the relevant Funding Source, L/C Issuer or Purchaser the amount set forth on such certificate; provided, that (x) such Funding Source, L/C Issuer or Purchaser shall have applied consistent return metrics to other similarly situated borrowers or obligors (after consideration of facility pricing, structure, usage patterns, capital treatment and relationship) with respect to such increased costs or reduced returns and (y) to the extent that any Funding Agreement described in this Section 10.2(a) covers
facilities in addition to this Agreement, each Conduit Purchaser or Funding Source, as the case may be, shall allocate the liability for any such increased costs or reductions among Seller and other Persons with whom such Conduit Purchaser or Funding Source, as the case may be, has entered into agreements to purchase interests in or finance receivables and other financial assets (“Other Customers”), and Seller shall not be liable for any such increased costs or reductions that are attributable to any Other Customer. The term “Regulatory Change” shall mean (i) the adoption after the date hereof of any applicable law, rule or regulation (including any applicable law, rule or regulation regarding capital adequacy) or any change therein after the date hereof, (ii) any change after the date hereof in the interpretation or administration thereof by any governmental authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency, or (iii) the compliance, whether commenced prior to or after the date hereof, by any Funding Source or Purchaser with the requirements of (a) the final rule titled Risk‑Based Capital Guidelines; Capital Adequacy Guidelines; Capital Maintenance: Regulatory Capital; Impact of Modifications to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles; Consolidation of Asset‑Backed Commercial Paper Programs; and Other Related Issues, adopted by the United States bank regulatory agencies on December 15, 2009 (the “FAS 166/167 Capital Guidelines”) or (b) the Dodd‑Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, or any existing or future rules, regulations, guidance, interpretations or directives from the U.S. bank regulatory agencies relating to the FAS 166/167 Capital Guidelines or the Dodd‑Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (whether or not having the force of law). Notwithstanding the foregoing, from and after the LCR Adoption Date, Seller shall not be liable for any increased costs or reductions relating to increased capital charges incurred by reason of a Person’s liquidity coverage ratio to any Purchase Group the Managing Agent of which has delivered a Delayed Purchase Notification or notice of its intent to exercise its delayed purchase option pursuant to Section 1.2(b) (which notice is effective and has not been revoked).
(b)    The certificate of the applicable Purchaser, L/C Issuer or Funding Source setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Purchaser, L/C Issuer or Funding Source pursuant to paragraph (a) of this Section 10.2 shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(c)    Failure or delay on the part of any L/C Issuer, Purchaser or Funding Source to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such L/C Issuer’s, such Purchaser’s or such Funding Source’s right to demand such compensation; provided, that Seller shall not be required to compensate an L/C Issuer, Purchaser or Funding Source pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 180 days prior to the date that such L/C Issuer, Purchaser or Funding Source, as the case may be, notifies Seller in writing of the Regulatory Change giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such L/C Issuer’s, Purchaser’s or Funding Source’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided, further, that if the Regulatory Change giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 180‑day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.
(d)    If any Purchaser, any L/C Issuer or any Funding Source has or anticipates having any claim for compensation from Seller pursuant to clause (iii) of the definition of Regulatory Change appearing in paragraph (a) of this Section 10.2, and such Purchaser, L/C Issuer or
Funding Source reasonably determines, following consultation with Seller, that having the facility evidenced by this Agreement publicly rated by one credit rating agency would reduce the amount of such compensation by an amount deemed by such Purchaser or Funding Source to be material, such Purchaser or Funding Source (or the related Managing Agent) shall provide written notice to Seller and Servicer (a “Ratings Request”) that such Purchaser, L/C Issuer or Funding Source intends to request a public rating of the facility from one credit rating agency selected by such Purchaser, L/C Issuer or Funding Source and reasonably acceptable to Seller, of at least “AA’’ from S&P and “Aa2” from Moody’s, or the equivalent thereof from any other such credit rating agency (the “Required Rating”). Upon receipt of any such notice, Seller shall promptly notify such Purchaser, L/C Issuer or Funding Source either (x) that Seller has elected to pay the compensation giving rise to such request for a Required Rating and promptly thereafter pay such compensation to such Purchaser, L/C Issuer or Funding Source, as applicable, or (y) Seller has elected to, and thereafter Seller and Servicer shall, cooperate with such Purchaser’s, L/C Issuer’s or Funding Source’s efforts to obtain the Required Rating, and use commercially reasonable efforts to provide the applicable credit rating agency (either directly or through distribution to the Administrative Agent, such Purchaser, L/C Issuer or Funding Source or the related Managing Agent), any information (subject to the agreement of the credit rating agency to maintain the confidentiality of any information so provided which relates to any Obligor) requested by such credit rating agency for purposes of providing and monitoring the Required Rating; provided, that notwithstanding Seller’s election to cooperate in connection with obtaining the Required Ratings, neither failure to obtain the Required Rating nor failure to have the facility rated (if Seller has acted in good faith to attempt to obtain such rating) shall constitute an Amortization Event. The requesting Purchaser, L/C Issuer or Funding Source shall pay the initial fees payable to the credit rating agency for providing the rating and all ongoing fees payable to the credit rating agency for the continued monitoring of the rating. Nothing in this Section 10.2(d) shall preclude any Purchaser, L/C Issuer or Funding Source from demanding compensation from Seller pursuant to Section 10.2(a) hereof at any time and without regard to whether the Required Rating shall have been obtained, or shall require any Purchaser, L/C Issuer or Funding Source to obtain any rating on the facility prior to demanding any such compensation from Seller; provided, however, in demanding such compensation the applicable Purchaser, L/C Issuer or Funding Source shall take into account and give effect to any reduction in amounts payable under Section 10.2(a) due to the Required Rating(s) having been obtained.
Section 10.3.    Other Costs and Expenses. Seller shall pay to the Administrative Agent, the Managing Agents, the L/C Issuers and the Purchasers on demand all reasonable costs and out-of­pocket expenses in connection with the preparation, execution, delivery and administration of this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby and the other documents to be delivered hereunder (including any amendments, restatements, supplements or other modifications of the foregoing), including without limitation, the cost of Purchasers’ auditors auditing the books, records and procedures of Seller, reasonable fees of the rating agencies, reasonable fees and out‑of‑pocket expenses of legal counsel for to the Administrative Agent, the Managing Agents, the L/C Issuers and the Purchasers with respect thereto and with respect to advising to the Administrative Agent, each Managing Agent, each L/C Issuer and each Purchasers as to their respective rights and remedies under this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents; provided, that in connection with the closing of the transactions contemplated hereby and the other Transaction Documents, Seller shall only be obligated to reimburse the costs and expenses of one primary law firm serving as external counsel to the

Seller shall pay to the Administrative Agent, each Managing Agent, each L/C Issuer and each Purchaser on demand any and all costs and expenses of the Administrative Agent, the Managing Agents, the L/C Issuers and the Purchasers, if any, including reasonable counsel fees and expenses in connection with the enforcement of this Agreement, the other Transaction Documents and the other documents delivered hereunder and in connection with any restructuring or workout of this Agreement or such documents, or the administration of this Agreement following an Amortization Event.

The Administrative Agent, each Managing Agent and each of their respective Affiliates may make loans to, accept deposits from and generally engage in any kind of business with Seller or any Affiliate of Seller as though it were not the Administrative Agent or a Managing Agent hereunder. With respect to the Purchases pursuant to this Agreement, the Administrative Agent and each Managing Agent shall have the same rights and powers under this Agreement in its individual capacity as any Purchaser and may exercise the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent or a Managing Agent, and the terms “Committed Purchaser”, “Purchaser”, “Committed Purchasers”, “L/C Issuer” and “Purchasers” shall include the Administrative Agent and each Managing Agent in its individual capacity.
Section 11.8.    Successor Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent may, upon thirty (30) days’ prior notice to Seller and the Managing Agents, and the Administrative Agent shall, upon the direction of all of the Purchasers (other than the Administrative Agent, in its individual capacity) resign as Administrative Agent.

If the Administrative Agent shall resign, then the Required Managing Agents during such thirty‑day period shall appoint from among the Purchasers a successor Administrative Agent. If a Managing Agent shall resign, then the Purchasers in its Purchase Group shall appoint a successor managing agent during such thirty‑day period. If for any reason no successor Administrative Agent or Managing Agent is so appointed during such thirty‑day period, then effective upon the termination of such thirty‑day period, the Purchasers shall perform all of the duties of the Administrative Agent or the Purchasers in the applicable Purchase Group shall perform all of the duties of such Managing Agent, as applicable, hereunder and under the other Transaction Documents and Seller and Servicer (as applicable) shall make all payments in respect of the Aggregate Unpaids directly to the applicable Purchasers and for all purposes shall deal directly with the Purchasers.

the Seller to the Managing Agents, for the benefit of the Purchasers and the L/C Issuers, that such listing and/or execution shall be for administrative convenience only in creating a record or nominee owner to take certain actions hereunder on behalf of the Managing Agents, the Purchasers and the L/C Issuers or to execute UCC filings on behalf of the Managing Agents, the Purchasers and the L/C Issuers and that such listing and/or execution will not affect in any way the status of the Managing Agents, and the Purchasers and the L/C Issuers as the beneficial owners of, and secured parties with respect to, their respective undivided percentage ownership interests in the Receivables, the Related Security and Collections with respect thereto and all proceeds of the foregoing. In addition, such listing or execution shall impose no duties on the Administrative Agent other than those expressly and specifically undertaken in accordance with this Article XI. In furtherance of the foregoing, each Managing Agent, Purchaser and L/C Issuer shall be entitled to enforce their respective rights created under this Agreement without the need to conduct such enforcement through the Administrative Agent except as provided herein.
ARTICLE XII
ASSIGNMENTS; PARTICIPATIONS
Section 12.1.    Assignments. (a) The parties hereto hereby agree and consent to the complete or partial assignment by each Conduit Purchaser of all or any portion of its rights under, interest in, title to and obligations under this Agreement (i) to the Committed Purchasers pursuant to this Agreement or to a Funding Source pursuant to a Funding Agreement, (ii) to any other Purchaser, any Managing Agent or the Administrative Agent or any of their respective Affiliates (other than an issuer of commercial paper notes or other entity which obtains funds from such an issuer of commercial paper notes), (iii) to any other issuer of commercial paper notes or other entity which obtains funds from such an issuer of commercial paper notes, which in either case (x) is sponsored or administered by the Managing Agent of such Conduit Purchaser’s Purchase Group or administered by any Affiliate of such Managing Agent and (y) has a short‑term debt rating of “A‑1” or better by S&P and “P‑1” or better by Moody’s or (iv) to any other Person with the consent of Seller (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed); provided that, if an Amortization Event has occurred and is continuing, consent of Seller shall not be required for any such assignment pursuant to this clause (iv); provided, further, that in no event shall any Conduit Purchaser assign any of its rights, interests or obligations under this Agreement to a Marathon Competitor, and upon any such assignment, such Conduit Purchaser shall be released from its obligations so assigned. Further, Seller, Servicer, the Administrative Agent, the related Managing Agent and each related Committed Purchaser hereby agree that any assignee of a Conduit Purchaser of this Agreement or all or any of the interests of any Conduit Purchaser shall have all of the rights and benefits under this Agreement as if the term “Conduit Purchaser” explicitly referred to such party, and no such assignment shall in any way impair the rights and benefits of any Conduit Purchaser hereunder. Neither Seller nor Servicer shall have the right to assign its rights or obligations under this Agreement (other than the delegation by Servicer of its duties or responsibilities as Servicer as permitted under and in accordance with Section 8.1(b)(i)). The Seller acknowledges that each Conduit Purchaser may assign a security interest in or pledge this Agreement and any rights such Conduit Purchaser may have hereunder to a Conduit Trustee for its commercial paper program to secure obligations of such Conduit
Purchaser, in each case without notice to or consent of the Seller; provided, that no such assignment by any Conduit Purchaser shall relieve such Conduit Purchaser of any of its obligations hereunder.
(b)    Any Committed Purchaser may at any time and from time to time assign to one or more Persons (“Purchasing Committed Purchasers”) all or any part of its rights and obligations under this Agreement pursuant to an assignment agreement, substantially in the form set forth in Exhibit VII hereto (the “Assignment Agreement”) executed by such Purchasing Committed Purchaser and such selling Committed Purchaser; provided that Seller’s consent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) shall be required for any such assignment unless: (i) such assignment is to any other Purchaser, any Managing Agent or the Administrative Agent or any of their respective Affiliates, (ii) such assignment is to any issuer of commercial paper notes or other entity which obtains funds from such an issuer of commercial paper notes, which in either case is sponsored or administered by the Managing Agent of such Committed Purchaser’s Purchase Group or administered by any Affiliate of such Managing Agent or (iii) an Amortization Event has occurred and is continuing; provided, further, that the consent of each L/C Issuer shall be required for any assignment by a Committed Purchaser of its Commitment or any portion thereof; provided, further, that in no event shall any Committed Purchaser assign any of its rights, interests or obligations under this Agreement to a Marathon Competitor. The consent of the Managing Agent and any L/C Issuer for such Committed Purchaser’s Purchase Group shall be required prior to the effectiveness of any such assignment. Each assignee of a Committed Purchaser must (i) have a short-term debt rating of “A‑1” or better by S&P and “P‑1” by Moody’s and (ii) agree to deliver to the Administrative Agent, promptly following any request therefor by the Administrative Agent or any Conduit Purchaser in its Purchase Group, an enforceability opinion in form and substance satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and such Conduit Purchaser. Upon delivery of the executed Assignment Agreement to the Administrative Agent and the related Managing Agent, such selling Committed Purchaser shall be released from its obligations hereunder to the extent of such assignment. Thereafter the Purchasing Committed Purchaser shall for all purposes be a Committed Purchaser party to this Agreement and shall have all the rights and obligations of a Committed Purchaser under this Agreement to the same extent as if it were an original party hereto and no further consent or action by Seller, the Purchasers, the Managing Agents or the Administrative Agent shall be required.
Section 12.2.    Participations. Any Committed Purchaser may, in the ordinary course of its business at any time sell to one or more Persons (each a “Participant”) participating interests in its Pro Rata Share of the Capital of the Committed Purchasers, its Commitment or any other interest of such Committed Purchaser hereunder. Notwithstanding any such sale by a Committed Purchaser of a participating interest to a Participant, such Committed Purchaser’s rights and obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, such Committed Purchaser shall remain solely responsible for the performance of its obligations hereunder, and Seller, the Purchasers, the Managing Agents and the Administrative Agent shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Committed Purchaser in connection with such Committed Purchaser’s rights and obligations under this Agreement. Each Committed Purchaser agrees that any agreement between such Committed Purchaser and any such Participant in respect of such participating interest shall not restrict such Committed Purchaser’s right to agree to any amendment,
supplement, waiver or modification to this Agreement, except for any amendment, supplement, waiver or modification described in Section 14.1(b)(i).
Section 12.3.    Federal Reserve. Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, any Purchaser may at any time pledge or grant a security interest in all or any portion of its rights (including, without limitation, any interests in the Purchaser Interest and any rights to payment of Capital and Yield) under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Purchaser to a Federal Reserve Bank, without notice to or consent of any Seller Party, the Administrative Agent, any Managing Agent or any other Purchaser; provided that no such pledge or grant of a security interest shall release a Purchaser from any of its obligations hereunder, or substitute any such pledgee or grantee for such Purchaser as a party hereto.
Section 12.4.    Replacement of Purchase Groups. If (i) any Purchaser or Funding Source requests compensation under Section 10.2(a), (ii) any Committed Purchaser becomes a Defaulting Committed Purchaser or ceases to have a short-term debt rating of “A‑1” or better by S&P or “P‑1” or better by Moody’s (in the case of Fifth Third Bank, “A‑2” or better by S&P or “P‑2” or better by Moody’s) (iii) a Managing Agent delivers a Delayed Purchase Notification on behalf of its Purchase Group, or (iv) any Managing Agent or Purchaser fails to consent to any proposed amendment, modification, waiver or consent with respect to any provision hereof that requires the unanimous approval of all Managing Agents or Purchasers, or the approval of each of the Managing Agents or Purchasers affected thereby (in each case in accordance with Section 14.1), and the consent of the Required Managing Agents shall have been obtained with respect to such amendment, modification, waiver or consent, then Seller may, at its sole expense and effort (including payment of any applicable processing and recordation fees), upon notice to the related Managing Agent and the Administrative Agent, require each Purchaser in such Managing Agent’s Purchase Group to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 12.1), all of its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Conduit Purchaser or Committed Purchaser, as applicable, if a Conduit Purchaser or Committed Purchaser accepts such assignment); provided, that (x) Seller shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent with respect to any assignee that is not already a member of a Purchase Group hereunder, which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld, conditioned or delayed, (y) each member of such assigning Purchase Group shall have received payment of an amount equal to all outstanding Capital, L/C Obligations, accrued CP Costs and Yield in respect thereof, accrued fees and all other Aggregate Unpaids payable to it hereunder, from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding Capital) or Seller (in the case of all other amounts) and (z) in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 10.2(a), such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments. A Purchaser shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Purchaser or otherwise, the circumstances entitling Seller to require such assignment and delegation cease to exist.
ARTICLE XIII
EXTENSION OF TERM; TERMINATING PURCHASE GROUPS
Section 13.1.    Extension of Term; Terminating Purchase Groups. (a) Seller may, at any time during the period which is no more than ninety (90) days or less than sixty (60) days
immediately preceding the Liquidity Termination Date (as such date may have previously been extended pursuant to this Section 13.1(a)), request that the then applicable Liquidity Termination Date (the “Scheduled Liquidity Termination Date”) be extended for up to 364 days. Any such request shall be in writing and delivered to the Administrative Agent and each Managing Agent, and shall be subject to the following conditions: (i) no Committed Purchaser shall have an obligation to extend the Liquidity Termination Date at any time, and (ii) any such extension with respect to any Committed Purchaser shall be effective only upon the written agreement of the Administrative Agent, the applicable Managing Agent, such Committed Purchaser, Seller and Servicer. Each Managing Agent shall respond to any such request on behalf of the Committed Purchasers in its Purchase Group no later than the fifteenth (15th) day prior to the Scheduled Liquidity Termination Date (the “Response Deadline”) and a failure by any Managing Agent to respond by the Response Deadline shall be deemed to be a rejection of the requested extension. In the event that at least one Committed Purchaser agrees to extend the Scheduled Liquidity Termination Date, the Seller Parties, the Administrative Agent, the extending Committed Purchasers, the applicable Managing Agent or Managing Agents and the applicable Conduit Purchaser or Conduit Purchasers shall enter into such documents as such extending Committed Purchasers may deem necessary or appropriate to reflect such extension, and all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by such Committed Purchasers, Conduit Purchasers and Managing Agents and the Administrative Agent (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) shall be paid by Seller (provided, that Seller shall not, in connection with any such extension, be liable for the fees and expenses of more than one separate law firm at any one time for the Committed Purchasers, Conduit Purchasers, Managing Agents and the Administrative Agent collectively). In the event that any Committed Purchaser declines the request to extend the Liquidity Termination Date (each such Committed Purchaser being referred to herein as a “Terminating Committed Purchaser” and, together with its related Conduit Purchaser, being referred to herein as a “Terminating Purchaser”; the Purchase Group of each Terminating Purchaser being referred to herein as a “Terminating Purchase Group”), and the Commitment of such Terminating Committed Purchaser is not assigned to another Person in accordance with the terms of Article XII prior to the Scheduled Liquidity Termination Date, the Commitment of such Terminating Committed Purchaser shall automatically terminate on the Scheduled Liquidity Termination Date, and the Purchase Limit shall be reduced by an amount equal to each such Terminating Committed Purchaser’s Commitment on the Scheduled Liquidity Termination Date.
(b)    Upon reduction to zero of the Capital of all interests in the Purchaser Interest of a Terminating Purchase Group (after application of Collections thereto pursuant to Sections 2.2 and 2.3) (i) all rights and obligations of the Managing Agent and Purchasers in such Terminating Purchase Group hereunder shall be terminated, (ii) such Terminating Purchase Group shall cease to be a “Purchase Group” hereunder and (iii) the related Terminating Committed Purchaser shall no longer be a “Committed Purchaser” hereunder; provided, however, that the provisions of Article X shall continue in effect for the benefit of the Managing Agent and of each Purchaser in such Terminating Purchase Group with respect to Capital held by such Purchasers prior to such termination.
ARTICLE XIV
MISCELLANEOUS
Section 14.1.    Waivers and Amendments. (a) No failure or delay on the part of the Administrative Agent, any Managing Agent, any L/C Issuer or any Purchaser in exercising any power, right or remedy under this Agreement shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such power, right or remedy preclude any other further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other power, right or remedy.

(ii)    without the written consent of any L/C Issuer, amend, modify or waive any provision of this Agreement if the effect thereof is to affect the rights or duties of such L/C Issuer; or

Seller agrees to deliver promptly to the Administrative Agent (and the Administrative Agent shall promptly forward such written confirmation to each Managing Agent) a written confirmation of each telephonic notice signed by an Authorized Officer of Seller; provided, however, the absence of such confirmation shall not affect the validity of such notice. If the written confirmation differs from the action taken by the Administrative Agent or any Managing Agent, the records of the Administrative Agent or such Managing Agent, as applicable, shall govern absent manifest error.

The rights of each Purchaser under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of setoff) which such Purchaser may have. Each Purchaser agrees to promptly notify Seller and the Administrative Agent after any such setoff and application by such Purchaser.

Purchaser will hold its ratable proportion of such Aggregate Unpaids; provided that if all or any portion of such excess amount is thereafter recovered from such Purchaser or L/C Issuer, as applicable, such purchase shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, but without interest.

At any time after the occurrence of the Amortization Date, the Administrative Agent shall, at the written direction of the Required Managing Agents, direct Seller or Servicer to, notify the Obligors of Receivables, at Seller’s expense, of the ownership or security interests of the Purchasers under this Agreement and may also direct that payments of all amounts due or that become due under any or all Receivables be made directly to the Administrative Agent or its designee.
