Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
Third Amended and Restated Indenture
 
On July 25, 2019, New Residential Investment Corp. (the “Company”), NRZ Advance Receivables Trust 2015-ON1 (an indirect subsidiary of the Company, the “Issuer”), HLSS Holdings, LLC (an indirect subsidiary of the Company, “HLSS”), Deutsche Bank National Trust Company (“Deutsche Bank”), PHH Mortgage Corporation (“PMC”), New Residential Mortgage LLC (a subsidiary of the Company, “NRM”), NewRez LLC d/b/a Shellpoint Mortgage Servicing (a subsidiary of the Company, “Shellpoint”), Credit Suisse AG, New York Branch and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. entered into agreements to amend the existing indenture under the Issuer’s existing master trust financing facility (the “Restated Indenture”). A copy of the Restated Indenture is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 4.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
 
Pursuant to the Restated Indenture, the existing indenture was amended in accordance with its terms in connection with the Issuer’s continued financing of monthly advances, servicing advances and deferred servicing fees, in each case, arising under certain private label residential mortgage loan servicing agreements.
 
Issuance of Notes
 
On July 25, 2019, Company, the “Issuer”), HLSS, Deutsche Bank, PMC, NRM, Shellpoint, and Credit Suisse AG, New York Branch entered into a financing transaction pursuant to which the Issuer issued $400,000,000 of rated receivables backed term notes (the “Series 2019-T1 Notes”).  The Series 2019-T1 Notes are all issued under the Indenture.  A copy of the Series 2019-T1 Supplement is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 4.2 and is incorporated by reference herein.
 
The proceeds of the Series 2019-T1 Notes were used to redeem the Series 2016-T5 Notes issued by the Issuer.
 
The Series 2019-T1 Notes are secured by servicer advance receivables made by PMC, Shellpoint and NRM and accrued and unpaid servicing fees payable under certain identified residential mortgage loan servicing agreements. The collateral securing the Series 2019-T1 Notes cross-collateralizes four other series of outstanding notes previously issued by the Issuer.
 
The Series 2019-T1 Notes bear fixed interest, varying by class, ranging from 2.59% to 4.46% per annum.  The revolving period for the Series 2019-T1 Notes ends on July 15, 2022.  If the Series 2019-T1 Notes are still outstanding at the end of the revolving period, the Issuer will be required to repay one-twelfth of the remaining principal balance of the Series 2019-T1 Notes each month until the principal balance of the Series 2019-T1 Notes is paid in full.
 
The events of default and target amortization events under the Series 2019-T1 Notes include customary events such as: (i) failure to satisfy an interest coverage test, (ii) failure to satisfy a collateral performance test measuring the ratio of collected advance reimbursements to the balance of advances; (iii) failure to deliver certain reports; (iv) material breaches of any of the transaction documents (subject to applicable cure periods), (v) non‑payment of principal, interest or other amounts when due, (vi) insolvency of PMC, HLSS, Shellpoint, NRM or the subsidiaries of HLSS party to the transaction documents; (vii) the Issuer becoming subject to registration as an “investment company” within the meaning of the 1940 Act; and (viii) PMC, Shellpoint or NRM failing to comply with the deposit and remittance requirements set forth in any pooling and servicing agreement or such definitive documents.
 
Upon the occurrence of an event of default or a target amortization event (including because of the end of the related revolving period) in respect of the Series 2019-T1 Notes, there is either an interest rate increase on the Series 2019-T1 Notes, a rapid amortization of all or a portion of the Series 2019-T1 Notes or an acceleration of principal repayment, or all of the foregoing.
 
Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an event of default under the facility, the requisite percentage of the related noteholders may declare the Series 2019-T1 Notes and all other obligations of the applicable issuer immediately due and payable and may terminate the commitments. A bankruptcy event of default causes such obligations automatically to become immediately due and payable and the commitments automatically to terminate.
 

The definitive documents related to the Series 2019-T1 Notes contain customary representations and warranties, as well as affirmative and negative covenants. Affirmative covenants include, among others, reporting requirements, provision of notices of material events, maintenance of existence, maintenance of books and records, compliance with laws, compliance with covenants under the designated servicing agreements and maintaining certain servicing standards with respect to the advances and the related mortgage loans. Negative covenants include, among others, limitations on amendments to the designated servicing agreements and limitations on amendments to the procedures and methodology for repaying the advances or determining that advances have become non-recoverable.

This THIRD AMENDED AND RESTATED INDENTURE (as amended, supplemented, restated, or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Indenture”), is made and entered into as of July 25, 2019 (the “Effective Date”), by and among NRZ ADVANCE RECEIVABLES TRUST 2015-ON1, a statutory trust organized under the laws of the State of Delaware (the “Issuer”), DEUTSCHE BANK NATIONAL TRUST COMPANY, a national banking association, in its capacity as Indenture Trustee (the “Indenture Trustee”), and as Calculation Agent, Paying Agent and Securities Intermediary (in each case, as defined below), HLSS HOLDINGS, LLC, a limited liability company organized under the laws of the State of Delaware (“HLSS”), NEW RESIDENTIAL MORTGAGE LLC, a limited liability company organized under the laws of the State of Delaware (“NRM”), NEWREZ LLC d/b/a SHELLPOINT MORTGAGE SERVICING, a limited liability company organized under the laws of the State of Delaware (“Shellpoint”), PHH MORTGAGE CORPORATION, a New Jersey corporation (“PMC”), and CREDIT SUISSE AG, NEW YORK BRANCH (Credit Suisse), as an Administrative Agent.
 
RECITALS OF THE ISSUER
 
The Issuer entered into that certain Second Amended and Restated Indenture (as amended prior to the date hereof, the “Existing Indenture”), dated as of September 7, 2018 (the “Restatement Closing Date”), among the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee, HLSS, PMC (as successor by merger to Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC), NRM, Shellpoint and Credit Suisse.
 
The parties hereto wish to amend and restate the Existing Indenture pursuant to this Indenture such that the Existing Indenture continues in full force and effect as amended hereby and, except with respect to the terms that have been amended pursuant to this Indenture, all obligations of the parties hereto (including representations and warranties made and covenants to be performed prior to the Effective Date) under the Existing Indenture will remain outstanding and continue in full force and effect, unpaid, unimpaired and undischarged, and all liens created under the Existing Indenture will continue in full force and effect, unimpaired and undischarged, having the same perfection and priority for payment and performance of the obligations of the parties hereto as were in place under the Existing Indenture.
 
On the Effective Date, the parties are entering into this Indenture.
 
PMC, HLSS and HLSS MSR – EBO Acquisition LLC (“MSR – EBO”, as assignee of Home Loan Servicing Solutions, Ltd.) are parties to MSR Purchase Agreement (as defined below).  Pursuant to the MSR Purchase Agreement, PMC sold certain economics associated with various residential mortgage loan servicing agreements to HLSS.
 
Pursuant to the Master Agreement (as defined below) and the Transfer Agreement (as defined below), NRM has become, prior to the date hereof, the named servicer (as successor to PMC) under certain Designated Servicing Agreements.
 

Pursuant to the New RMSR Agreement (as defined below) and the Transfer Agreement, PMC, HLSS, MSR – EBO and NRM, as applicable, have agreed that on any date on which all required consents and ratings agency letters required for a formal change of the named servicer under certain Designated Servicing Agreements shall have been obtained, PMC shall transfer to NRM or Shellpoint, as applicable, the related Servicing Rights Assets (as defined in the Transfer Agreement) in respect of such Designated Servicing Agreement in accordance with the terms of the Transfer Agreement.  Upon any such transfer, PMC will subservice the related mortgage loans on behalf of NRM or Shellpoint pursuant the NRM Subservicing Agreement or Shellpoint Subservicing Agreement, as applicable (each as defined below).
 
In the event that neither of the NRZ Servicers becomes the named servicer under any particular Designated Servicing Agreement as contemplated by the New RMSR Agreement and the Transfer Agreement, and subject to the terms and conditions of those agreements PMC may repurchase its interests in the related mortgage servicing rights from HLSS and MSR-EBO, in accordance with the terms of the New RMSR Agreement.  Upon any repurchase contemplated by the preceding sentence, such agreement shall no longer be a Designated Servicing Agreement.
 
Prior to the Transfer Date with respect to any Designated Servicing Agreement, PMC shall continue to (i) be the “Servicer” under such Designated Servicing Agreement, (ii) have the obligation to make the required Advances under such Designated Servicing Agreement, and (iii) have the right to collect the related Receivables in reimbursement of such Advances.

Section 1.7.
Notices to Noteholders; Waiver.
 
(a)          Where this Indenture, any Indenture Supplement or any Note provides for notice to registered Noteholders of any event, such notice will be sufficiently given (unless expressly provided otherwise herein, in such Indenture Supplement or in such Note) if in writing and mailed by overnight courier, sent by facsimile, sent by electronic transmission or personally delivered to each Noteholder of a Note affected by such event, at such Noteholder’s address as it appears in the Note Register, not later than the latest date, and not earlier than the earliest date, prescribed for the giving of such notice.  In any case where notice to Noteholders is given by mail, facsimile, electronic transmission or delivery, none of the failure to mail, send by facsimile, send by electronic transmission or deliver such notice, or any defect in any notice so mailed, to any particular Noteholders will affect the sufficiency of such notice with respect to other Noteholders and any notice that is mailed, sent by facsimile, sent by electronic transmission or delivered in the manner herein provided shall conclusively have been presumed to have been duly given.
 
Where this Indenture, any Indenture Supplement or any Note provides for notice in any manner, such notice may be waived in writing by the Person entitled to receive such notice, either before or after the event, and such waiver will be the equivalent of such notice.  Waivers of notice by Noteholders will be filed with the Indenture Trustee, but such filing will not be a condition precedent to the validity of any action taken in reliance upon such waiver.
 
(b)         In case, by reason of the suspension of regular mail service as a result of a strike, work stoppage or otherwise, it will be impractical to mail notice of any event to any Noteholder of a Note when such notice is required to be given pursuant to any provision of this Indenture, then any method of notification as will be satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee and the Issuer will be deemed to be a sufficient giving of such notice.
 
(c)          Where this Indenture provides for notice to each Note Rating Agency, failure to give such notice will not affect any other rights or obligations created hereunder and will not under any circumstance constitute an Adverse Effect.
 
Section 1.8.
Administrative Agent.
 
(a)          Discretion of Administrative Agent.  Any provision providing for the exercise of discretion of the Administrative Agent means that such discretion may be executed in the sole and absolute discretion of the Administrative Agent.  In addition, for the avoidance of doubt, as further provided in the definition of “Administrative Agent” herein and notwithstanding any other provision in this Indenture to the contrary, any approvals, consents, votes or other rights exercisable by the Administrative Agent under this Indenture (other than any Indenture Supplement related to a specific Series) shall require the approval, consent, vote or other exercise of rights of each Person specified by name under the definition of “Administrative Agent” or in its stead its Affiliate or successor as noticed to the Indenture Trustee.
 
62

(b)         Nature of Duties.  The Administrative Agent shall have no duties or responsibilities except those expressly set forth in this Indenture, a related Indenture Supplement or in the other Transaction Documents.  The Administrative Agent shall not have by reason of this Indenture or any Transaction Document a fiduciary relationship in respect of any Noteholder.  Nothing in this Indenture or any of the Transaction Documents, express or implied, is intended to or shall be construed to impose upon the Administrative Agent any obligations in respect of this Indenture or any of the other Transaction Documents except as expressly set forth herein or therein.  Each Noteholder shall make its own independent investigation of the financial condition and affairs of the Issuer in connection with the purchase of any Note and shall make its own appraisal of the creditworthiness of the Issuer and the value of the Collateral, and the Administrative Agent shall have no duty or responsibility, either initially or on a continuing basis, to provide any Noteholder with any credit or other information with respect thereto, whether coming into its possession before the Closing Date, as applicable, or at any time or times thereafter.
 
(c)          Rights, Exculpation, Etc.  The Administrative Agent and its directors, officers, agents or employees shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it under or in connection with this Indenture or the other Transaction Documents.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent:  (i) may consult with legal counsel (including, without limitation, counsel to the Administrative Agent or counsel to the Issuer), independent public accountants (which may or may not be independent certified public accountants approved by the Administrative Agent to perform the agreed upon procedures pursuant to Section 3.3(d)), and other experts selected by it and shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken in good faith by it in accordance with the advice of such counsel or experts; (ii) makes no warranty or representation to any Noteholder and shall not be responsible to any Noteholder for any statements, certificates, warranties or representations made in or in connection with this Indenture or the other Transaction Documents; (iii) shall not have any duty to ascertain or to inquire as to the performance or observance of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Indenture or the other Transaction Documents on the part of any Person, the existence or possible existence of any default or Event of Default, or to inspect the Collateral or other property (including, without limitation, the books and records) of any Person; (iv) shall not be responsible to any Noteholder for the due execution, legality, validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of this Indenture or the other Transaction Documents or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto or thereto; and (v) shall not be deemed to have made any representation or warranty regarding the existence, value or collectability of the Collateral, the existence, priority or perfection of the Indenture Trustee’s Adverse Claim thereon, or any certificate prepared by the Issuer in connection therewith, nor shall the Administrative Agent be responsible or liable to the Noteholders for any failure to monitor or maintain any portion of the Collateral.  Without limiting the foregoing and notwithstanding any understanding to the contrary, no Noteholder shall have any right of action whatsoever against the Administrative Agent as a result of the Administrative Agent acting or refraining from acting under this Indenture, the Notes or any of the other Transaction Documents in its own interests as a Noteholder or otherwise.
 
63

(d)          Reliance.  The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely upon any written notices, statements, certificates, orders or other documents or any telephone message believed by it in good faith to be genuine and correct and to have been signed, sent or made by the proper Person, and with respect to all matters pertaining to this Indenture or any of the other Transaction Documents and its duties hereunder or thereunder, upon advice of counsel selected by it.

Article II

The Trust Estate
 
Section 2.1.
Contents of Trust Estate.
 
(a)          Grant of Trust Estate.  The Issuer has Granted the Trust Estate to the Indenture Trustee, and the Indenture Trustee has accepted this Grant, pursuant to the Granting Clause.
 
(b)          Notification of MBS Trustees.  Each Servicer hereby represents and warrants that it has notified (or will notify) the related MBS Trustees with respect to the Designated Servicing Agreements as of the initial date of the assignment, transfer of ownership and pledge of Receivables related to such Servicing Agreements, including the related Advance Reimbursement Amounts, and that each related Receivable is subject to the Indenture Trustee’s Security Interest, pursuant to a notice, substantially in the form of Exhibit C attached hereto.  The notices indicating the Security Interest of the Indenture Trustee in the Receivables relating to a particular Designated Servicing Agreement shall be deleted, rescinded or modified when, and only when, all related Receivables have been paid in full or have been released from such Security Interest pursuant to this Indenture.  In addition, each Determination Date Report shall include a list of the Receivables, and any such list or related trial balance or Schedule of Receivables, and any other list of the Receivables (other than (i) any list provided from time to time to a MBS Trustee in the ordinary course of business and (ii) any communications with owners of equity interests in HLSS and their related advisors) provided by any Servicer, any Receivables Seller or the Issuer to any third party shall include language indicating that the Receivables identified therein are subject to the Indenture Trustee’s Security Interest.
 
(c)          Addition and Removal of Designated Servicing Agreements.
 
(i)          Addition of Designated Servicing Agreements.
 
(A)         HLSS may at any time designate any Facility Eligible Servicing Agreement (except in the case of Ineligible Designated Servicing Agreements which may be any Servicing Agreement) as a Designated Servicing Agreement under the Receivables Sale Agreement, whereupon such Servicing Agreement shall become a “Designated Servicing Agreement” for purposes of this Indenture with respect to the Advance Types of Receivables that are designated as eligible pursuant to such Servicing Agreement if (1) the Administrator has certified in writing to the Indenture Trustee that such Servicing Agreement is a Facility Eligible Servicing Agreement, (2) the Administrative Agent (in its sole discretion) has approved such Servicing Agreement for addition and approved the designation of the Advance Types of Receivables that are eligible and (3) written notice of such addition has been provided to the Note Rating Agencies for the Outstanding Notes.  Prior to the addition of any Designated Servicing Agreement, as provided in this Section 2.1(c), the Administrator must certify to the Indenture Trustee in writing that it has filed all financing statements or amendments to financing statements to ensure that the Indenture Trustee’s Security Interest in any Receivables related to any additional Designated Servicing Agreements is perfected and of first priority.
 
66

(B)        If any Servicing Agreements are added as Designated Servicing Agreements, the Administrator shall update the Designated Servicing Agreement Schedule, which shall specifically designate the Advance Type of Receivables that are eligible and furnish it to the Indenture Trustee, and the most recently furnished schedule shall be maintained by the Indenture Trustee as the definitive Designated Servicing Agreement Schedule.
 
(C)        Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Issuer may acquire existing Receivables under Servicing Agreements to be added as Designated Servicing Agreements directly from another special purpose financing subsidiary of HLSS pursuant to an Assignment and Recognition Agreement, the Receivables from which are at the time of transfer financed in another facility and such Receivables may constitute Facility Eligible Receivables notwithstanding that such Receivables were not transferred by a Receivables Seller to the Depositor and then by the Depositor to the Issuer.
 
(ii)          Removal of Designated Servicing Agreements.
 
(A)       HLSS may remove any Servicing Agreement as a Designated Servicing Agreement under Section 2(e) of the Receivables Sale Agreement, pursuant to a Permitted Refinancing (with the consent of the Administrative Agent) and/or change any Advance Types of Receivables that are designated as eligible or ineligible pursuant to such Servicing Agreement, whereupon such agreement shall no longer constitute a “Designated Servicing Agreement” or the Advance Types of Receivables shall no longer be designated as eligible or no longer be designated as ineligible (as the case may be, with respect to changes in categorization of certain Advance Types from the date on which they were originally designated with approval of the Administrative Agent) pursuant to such Servicing Agreement for purposes of this Indenture (except that, unless the Issuer conducts a Permitted Refinancing, Receivables related to Advances made by or Deferred Servicing Fees accrued by the applicable Servicer pursuant to that agreement prior to its removal shall continue to be part of the Trust Estate, in which case HLSS may not assign to another Person any Receivables arising under that Servicing Agreement until all Receivables that arose under that Servicing Agreement that are included in the Trust Estate shall have been paid in full or sold or otherwise transferred in a Permitted Refinancing).  Prior to removing any Designated Servicing Agreement or designating such Advance Types of Receivables as no longer eligible or no longer ineligible pursuant to such Servicing Agreement as provided in this Section 2.1(c), the Issuer must (1) receive prior written approval from the Administrative Agent, which may be given or withheld in its sole and absolute discretion and (2) send prior written notice of such removal to each Note Rating Agency.

67

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Issuer may sell the unreimbursed Receivables with respect to a removed Servicing Agreement to the applicable Servicer for a cash purchase price equal to 100% of the Receivable Balance thereof upon payment of which such Receivables shall no longer be part of the Trust Estate; provided, however, that in no event shall the Issuer sell Receivables to such Servicer, on any date, to the extent that, after such sale, the cumulative amount of Receivables sold to such Servicer pursuant to this sentence would exceed 10% of the aggregate Receivable Balance of the Receivables that have been conveyed to the Issuer from the Cut-off Date through and including the date of sale.  Following any such sale, the related Servicing Agreement shall cease to be a “Designated Servicing Agreement” for purposes hereof and the other Transaction Documents.
 
(B)         If any Servicing Agreements are removed as Designated Servicing Agreements or any Advance Types of Receivables with respect to a Designated Servicing Agreement are no longer designated as eligible or no longer designated as ineligible, as the case may be, with respect to changes in categorization of certain Advance Types from the date on which they were originally designated with the approval of the Administrative Agent, the Administrator shall update the Designated Servicing Agreement Schedule, which shall specifically designate the Advance Type of Receivables that are eligible and furnish it to the Indenture Trustee, and the most recently furnished schedule shall be maintained by the Indenture Trustee as the definitive Designated Servicing Agreement Schedule.
 
(d)         Protection of Transfers to, and Back-up Security Interests of Depositor and Issuer.  The Administrator shall take all actions as may be necessary to ensure that the Trust Estate is Granted to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to this Indenture.  The Administrator, at its own expense, shall make (or cause to be made) all initial filings on or about the Closing Date hereunder and shall forward a copy of such filing or filings to the Indenture Trustee.  In addition, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrator, at its own expense at the reasonable request of the Administrative Agent, shall prepare and forward for filing, or shall cause to be forwarded for filing, all filings necessary to maintain the effectiveness of any original filings necessary under the relevant UCC to perfect and maintain the first priority status of the Indenture Trustee’s security interest in the Trust Estate, including without limitation (i) continuation statements, and (ii) such other statements as may be occasioned by (A) any change of name of a Receivables Seller, a Servicer, the Depositor or the Issuer, (B) any change of location of the jurisdiction of any of a Receivables Seller, a Servicer, the Depositor or the Issuer, (C) any transfer of any interest of a Receivables Seller, the Depositor or the Issuer in any item in the Trust Estate or (D) any change under the applicable UCC or other applicable laws.  The Administrator shall enforce the Depositor’s obligations pursuant to the Receivables Pooling Agreement, and each Receivables Seller’s and each Servicer’s obligations pursuant to the Receivables Sale Agreement, on behalf of the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee.  The Administrator shall enforce the related Prior Issuer’s obligations pursuant to any Assignment and Recognition Agreement or Closing Agreement, on behalf of the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee.
 
68

(e)         Release of Receivables Following Receivables Sale Termination Date.  The Indenture Trustee shall release to the Issuer all Receivables in the Trust Estate upon the occurrence of the Receivables Sale Termination Date, and shall execute all instruments of assignment, release or conveyance, prepared by the Issuer or the applicable Receivables Seller, and delivered to the Indenture Trustee, as reasonably requested by the Issuer or such Receivables Seller.
 
Section 2.2.
Receivable Files.
 
(a)          Indenture Trustee.  The Indenture Trustee agrees to hold, in trust on behalf of the Noteholders, upon the execution and delivery of this Indenture, the following documents relating to each Receivable:
 
(i)          a copy of each Determination Date Report in electronic form listing each Receivable Granted to the Trust Estate, the applicable Advance Type for such Receivable and the corresponding Receivable Balance for such Receivable and demonstrating the profitability or loss of each Subservicing Agreement for the immediately preceding calendar quarter, and any other information required in any related Indenture Supplement;
 
(ii)          a copy of each Funding Certification delivered by the Administrator, which shall be maintained in electronic format;
 
(iii)        the current Designated Servicing Agreement Schedule;
 
(iv)         the current Schedule of Receivables; and
 
(v)          any other documentation provided for in any Indenture Supplement
 
provided that the Indenture Trustee shall have no responsibility to ensure the validity or sufficiency of the Receivables.
 
(b)          Administrator as Custodian.  To reduce administrative costs, the Administrator will act as custodian for the benefit of the Noteholders of the following documents relating to each Receivable:
 
(i)           a copy of the related Designated Servicing Agreement and each amendment and modification thereto;
 
(ii)          any documents other than those identified in Section 2.2(a) received from or made available by the related MBS Trustee, Servicer, securities administrator or other similar party in respect of such Receivable; and
 
(iii)        any and all other documents that the Issuer, any Servicer or any Receivables Seller, as the case may be, shall keep on file, in accordance with its customary procedures, relating to such Receivable or the related Mortgage Pool or Servicing Agreement.
 
69

(c)          Delivery of Updated Designated Servicing Agreement Schedule.  The Administrator shall deliver to the Indenture Trustee an updated Schedule 1 prior to or in connection with the addition or deletion of any Servicing Agreement as a Designated Servicing Agreement, the modification to the eligibility status of any Advance Type of Receivables arising under such Servicing Agreement or the occurrence of a Transfer Date with respect to a Designated Servicing Agreement and the Indenture Trustee shall hold the most recently delivered version as the definitive Schedule 1.  The Administrator represents and warrants, as of the date hereof and as of the date any new Servicing Agreement is added as a Designated Servicing Agreement, that Schedule 1, as it may be updated by the Administrator from time to time and delivered to the Indenture Trustee, is a true, complete and accurate list of all Designated Servicing Agreements.
 
In addition, the Administrator shall furnish to the Indenture Trustee an updated Schedule of Receivables on each Funding Date in electronic form, and the Indenture Trustee shall maintain the most recent Schedule of Receivables it receives, and send a copy to any Noteholder upon request.
 
In addition, in connection with the delivery of each updated Schedule 1 pursuant to this Section 2.2(c), the Administrator shall furnish to the Indenture Trustee an updated Schedule 3, Schedule 4, or Schedule 6 as necessary to reflect any updates upon the addition or removal of Designated Servicing Agreements or designation or modification of eligibility status for any Advance Type of Receivables pursuant to Section 2.1(c).
 
(d)          Marking of Records.  The Administrator or the Sub-Administrator on behalf of the Administrator shall ensure that, from and after the time of the sale and/or contribution of the Initial Receivables and all Additional Receivables to the Depositor under the Receivables Sale Agreement and to the Issuer under the Receivables Pooling Agreement, each Assignment and Recognition Agreement and the Grant thereof to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to this Indenture, any records (including any computer records and back‑up archives) maintained by or on behalf of any Servicer that refer to any Receivable indicate clearly the interest of the Issuer and the Security Interest of the Indenture Trustee in such Receivable and that such Receivable is owned by the Issuer and subject to the Indenture Trustee’s Security Interest.  Indication of the Issuer’s ownership of a Receivable and the Security Interest of the Indenture Trustee shall be deleted from or modified on such records when, and only when, such Receivable has been paid in full, repurchased, or assigned by the Issuer and released by the Indenture Trustee from its Security Interest.
 
Section 2.3.
Indemnity Payments for Receivables Upon Breach.
 
(a)          Upon discovery by the Issuer or the Administrator, or upon the actual knowledge of a Responsible Officer of the Indenture Trustee, of a breach of any of the representations and warranties of a Receivables Seller as to any Receivable set forth in Section 4(b) or Section 5(b), as applicable, of the Receivables Sale Agreement, the party discovering such breach shall give prompt written notice to the other parties hereto.  Upon notice of such a breach, the Administrator shall enforce the Issuer’s rights to require the applicable Receivables Seller to deposit the Indemnity Payment with respect to the affected Receivable(s) into the Collection and Funding Account.  This obligation shall pertain to all representations and warranties of each applicable Receivables Seller as to the Receivables set forth in Section 4(b) or Section 5(b), as applicable, of the Receivables Sale Agreement, whether or not the applicable Receivables Seller has knowledge of the breach at the time of the breach or at the time the representations and warranties were made.
 
70

(b)       Unless repurchased by the applicable Receivables Seller in accordance with the terms of the Receivables Sale Agreement or in a transaction contemplated by Section 2.1 hereof, the Receivables shall remain in the Trust Estate, regardless of any receipt of an Indemnity Payment in the Collection and Funding Account.  The sole remedies of the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders with respect to a breach of any of the representations and warranties of a Receivables Seller as to any Receivable set forth in Section 4(b) or Section 5(b), as applicable, of the Receivables Sale Agreement shall be to enforce the obligation of the Issuer hereunder and the remedies of the Issuer (as assignee of the Depositor) against the applicable Receivables Seller under the Receivables Sale Agreement.  The Indenture Trustee shall have no duty to conduct any affirmative investigation as to the occurrence of any condition requiring the payment of any Indemnity Payment for any Receivable pursuant to this Section 2.3, except as otherwise provided in Section 11.2.
 
(c)          To the extent not prohibited by applicable law, the Administrator and solely during the continuation of an Event of Default, the Indenture Trustee, are authorized to commence at the written direction of the Administrative Agent or Majority Noteholders of all Outstanding Notes, in its own name or in the name of the Issuer, legal proceedings to enforce any Receivable against the related MBS Trustee or any successor servicer or other appropriate party or to commence or participate in a legal proceeding (including without limitation a bankruptcy proceeding) relating to or involving a Receivable, a Receivables Seller or a Servicer; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall obligate the Indenture Trustee to take or initiate such action or legal proceeding, unless indemnity reasonably satisfactory to it shall have been provided.  The Administrator or the Sub-Administrator on behalf of the Administrator shall deposit or cause to be deposited into the Collection and Funding Account, on behalf of the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders, all amounts realized in connection with any such action.
 
Section 2.4.
Duties of Custodian with Respect to the Receivables Files.

84

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 3.4, Section 2.4, or in any other Section hereof, each Servicer and each Subservicer, on reasonable prior notice, shall permit the Administrative Agent, the Verification Agent, the Indenture Trustee or any agent or independent certified public accountants (which may or may not be independent certified public accountants approved by the Administrative Agent to perform the agreed upon procedures pursuant to Section 3.3(d)) selected by the Indenture Trustee, during the applicable Servicer’s or Subservicer’s, as applicable, normal business hours, and in a manner that does not unreasonably interfere with such Servicer’s or such Subservicer’s, as applicable, conduct of its regular business, to examine all the books of account, records, reports and other papers of such Servicer or Subservicer, as applicable, relating to the Mortgage Loans, Designated Servicing Agreements and the Receivables, to make copies and extracts therefrom, and to discuss such Servicer’s or Subservicer’s, as applicable, affairs, finances and accounts relating to the Mortgage Loans, Designated Servicing Agreements and the Receivables with applicable Servicer’s officers and employees, all at such times and as often as reasonably may be requested; provided that any such Person seeking access to any information or documentation pursuant to this Section 3.4(a) has agreed with applicable Servicer or Subservicer, as applicable, to be bound by any confidentiality provisions reasonably requested by applicable Servicer or Subservicer, as applicable.  Each Servicer shall at all times have equivalent access rights to each applicable Subservicer.  Unless a Target Amortization Event or an Event of Default that has not been waived in accordance with the terms hereof shall have occurred, or the Notes of any rated Class have been downgraded below “investment grade” by each related Note Rating Agency or any related Note Rating Agency shall have withdrawn its rating of any Class of Notes, any out-of-pocket costs and expenses incident to the exercise by the Indenture Trustee or any Noteholder of any right under this Section 3.4 shall be borne by the requesting Noteholder(s).  The parties hereto acknowledge that the Indenture Trustee shall not exercise any right pursuant to this Section 3.4 prior to any event set forth in the preceding sentence unless directed to do so by a group of Interested Noteholders, and the Indenture Trustee has been provided with indemnity satisfactory to it by such Interested Noteholders.  The Indenture Trustee shall have no liability for action in accordance with the preceding sentence.
 
In the event that such rights are exercised (i) following a Target Amortization Event or (ii) following the occurrence of an Event of Default that has not been waived in accordance with the terms hereof, or (iii) after a related Note Rating Agency has withdrawn its rating of any Class of Notes or (iv) while the Notes of any rated Class have a rating below “investment grade” by such Note Rating Agency (other than any Notes initially rated below “investment grade” by any such Note Rating Agency), all out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by the Indenture Trustee shall be borne by HLSS.  Prior to any such payment, HLSS shall be provided with commercially reasonable documentation of such costs and expenses.  Notwithstanding anything contained in this Section 3.4 to the contrary, in no event shall the books of account, records, reports and other papers of any Servicer, any Receivables Seller, the Depositor or the Issuer relating to the Mortgage Loans, Designated Servicing Agreements and the Receivables be examined by independent certified public accountants (which may or may not be independent certified public accountants that are approved by the Administrative Agent to perform the agreed upon procedures pursuant to Section 3.3(d)) at the direction of the Indenture Trustee or any Interested Noteholder pursuant to the exercise of any right under this Section 3.4 more than one time during any 12‑month period at the expense of the Administrator, unless (A) a Target Amortization Event has occurred,  (B) an Event of Default has occurred that has not been waived in accordance with the terms hereof during such twelve-month period, or (C) the Notes of any rated Class have been downgraded below “investment grade” by a related Note Rating Agency (without regard to any supplemental credit enhancement, unless such supplemental credit enhancement has caused the related Note Rating Agency to reverse such downgrade of such rated Class so that such Notes will be rated above “investment grade”) or such Note Rating Agency shall have withdrawn its rating of any rated Class of Notes, in which case more than one examination may be conducted during a twelve-month period, but such extra audits shall be at the sole expense of the Noteholder(s) requesting such audit(s).

85

(b)          Access to Issuer.  The Issuer agrees that, on reasonable prior notice, it will permit any representative of the Indenture Trustee, Verification Agent or the Administrative Agent at the expense of the Administrator no more than one time during any 12-month period (unless (A) a Target Amortization Event has occurred, (B) an Event of Default has occurred that has not been waived in accordance with the terms hereof during such twelve-month period, or (C) the Notes of any rated Class have been downgraded below “investment grade” by a related Note Rating Agency (without regard to any supplemental credit enhancement, unless such supplemental credit enhancement has caused the related Note Rating Agency to reverse such downgrade of the Notes of any rated Class so that such Notes will be rated above “investment grade”) or such Note Rating Agency shall have withdrawn its rating of any rated Class of Notes, in which case more than one examination may be conducted during a twelve-month period, but such extra audits shall be at the sole expense of the party requesting such audit(s)), to examine all of its books of account, records, reports, and other papers, to make copies and extracts therefrom, to cause such books to be audited by independent certified public accountants (which may or may not be independent certified public accountants approved by the Administrative Agent to perform the agreed upon procedures pursuant to Section 3.3(d)), and to discuss its affairs, finances and accounts its officers, employees, and independent certified public accountants (which may or may not be independent certified public accountants that are approved by the Administrative Agent to perform the agreed upon procedures pursuant to Section 3.3(d)), all at such reasonable times and as often as may be reasonably requested.  The Indenture Trustee, the Verification Agent and the Administrative Agent shall and shall cause their respective representatives to hold in confidence all such information except to the extent disclosure may be required by law (and all reasonable applications for confidential treatment are unavailing) or the Indenture Trustee, the Verification Agent or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, may reasonably determine that such disclosure is consistent with its obligations hereunder; provided, however, that the Indenture Trustee may disclose on a confidential basis any such information to its agents, attorneys and auditors in connection with the performance of its responsibilities hereunder.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, neither the Indenture Trustee, the Verification Agent or the Administrative Agent shall disclose information to any of its Affiliates or any of their respective directors, officers, employees and agents, that may provide any servicer advance financing to PMC, HLSS, any NRZ Servicer, the Depositor, the Issuer or any of their Affiliates, except in such Affiliate’s capacity as Noteholder.
 
Section 3.5.

(a)          Monthly Reports on Indenture Trustee’s Website.  The Indenture Trustee will make each Determination Date Report, Payment Date Report and Interim Payment Date Report (and, at its option, any additional files containing the same information in an alternative format) available each month to any interested parties (including, but not limited to the Verification Agent) via the Indenture Trustee’s internet website and such other information as the Indenture Trustee may have in its possession, but only with the use of a password provided by the Indenture Trustee.  In connection with providing access to the Indenture Trustee’s internet website, the Indenture Trustee may require registration and the acceptance of a disclaimer.  The Indenture Trustee’s internet website shall initially be located at https://tss.sfs.db.com/investpublic.  Assistance in using the Indenture Trustee’s website can be obtained by calling the Indenture Trustee’s investor relations desk at 1-800-735-7777.  Parties that are unable to use the above distribution option are entitled to have a paper copy mailed to them via first class mail or by overnight courier by calling the investor relations desk and requesting a copy.  The Indenture Trustee shall have the right to change the way the Determination Date Reports, Payment Date Reports and Interim Payment Date Reports are distributed in order to make such distribution more convenient and/or more accessible to the above parties and the Indenture Trustee shall provide timely and adequate notification to all above parties regarding any such changes.

86

87

All amounts held in any Sinking Fund Account shall, to the extent permitted by this Indenture and applicable laws, rules and regulations, be invested in Sinking Fund Permitted Investments by the depository institution or trust company then maintaining such Sinking Fund Account only upon written direction of the Administrator to the Indenture Trustee; provided, however, that in the event the Administrator fails to provide such written direction to the Indenture Trustee, and until the Administrator provides such written direction, the Indenture Trustee shall not invest funds on deposit in any Sinking Fund Account.  Funds deposited into a Sinking Fund Account on a Business Day after 1:30 p.m. New York City time will not be invested until the following Business Day.  Investments held in Sinking Fund Permitted Investments in any Sinking Fund Account shall not be sold or disposed of prior to their maturity (unless an Event of Default has occurred).  Earnings on investment of funds in any Sinking Fund Account shall be remitted by the Indenture Trustee upon the Administrator’s request to the account or other location of the Administrator’s designation on the first (1st) Business Day of the month following the month in which such earnings on investment of funds is received; provided, that the Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to the benefit of any income or gain in the Sinking Fund Accounts for the Business Day immediately preceding each Interim Payment Date or Payment Date, as applicable.  Any losses and investment expenses relating to any investment of funds in any Sinking Fund Account shall be for the account of the Administrator, which shall deposit or cause to be deposited the amount of such loss (to the extent not offset by income from other investments of funds in the related Sinking Fund Account) in the related Sinking Fund Account promptly upon the realization of such loss.  The taxpayer identification number associated with each of the Sinking Fund Accounts shall be that of the Issuer, and the Issuer shall report for federal, state and local income tax purposes their respective portions of the income, if any, earned on funds in the relevant Sinking Fund Account.  The Administrator hereby acknowledges that all amounts on deposit in each Sinking Fund Account (excluding investment earnings on deposit in the Sinking Fund Accounts) are held in trust by the Indenture Trustee for the benefit of the Noteholders, subject to any express rights of the Issuer set forth herein, and shall remain at all times during the term of this Indenture under the sole dominion and control of the Indenture Trustee.
 
So long as the Indenture Trustee complies with the provisions of this Section 4.1, the Indenture Trustee shall not be liable for the selection of investments or for investment losses incurred thereon by reason of investment performance, liquidation prior to stated maturity or otherwise in any Trust Account (including a Sinking Fund Account).  The Indenture Trustee shall have no liability in respect of losses incurred in any Trust Account (including a Sinking Fund Account) as a result of the liquidation of any investment prior to its stated maturity or the failure to be provided with timely written investment direction.

88

In order to comply with the laws, rules, regulations and executive orders in effect from time to time applicable to banking institutions, including, without limitation, those relating to the funding of terrorist activities and money laundering, including Section 326 of the USA Patriot Act of the United States (“Applicable Law”), the Indenture Trustee is required to obtain, verify, record and update certain information relating to individuals and entities which maintain a business relationship with the Indenture Trustee.  Accordingly, each of the parties agrees to provide to the Indenture Trustee upon its request from time to time such identifying information and documentation as may be available for such party in order to enable the Indenture Trustee to comply with Applicable Law.
 
All parties to this Indenture agree, and each Noteholder of each Series by its acceptance of the related Note will be deemed to have agreed, that such Noteholder shall have no claim or interest in the amounts on deposit in any Trust Account created under this Indenture or any related Indenture Supplement related to an unrelated Series except as expressly provided herein or therein.
 
As of the Closing Date, (i) the Issuer will be disregarded as an entity separate from its single owner (the “Single Owner”), which will be a domestic corporation, all within the meaning of Section 7701 of the Code and the Treasury Regulations thereunder, and (ii) the Trust Accounts  will be maintained and controlled by the Indenture Trustee but the amounts on deposit in the Trust Accounts (including income, if any, earned on the investment of funds in such account) will be owned by the Single Owner for U.S. federal income tax reporting and withholding purposes (but, for the avoidance of doubt, (i) the amounts on deposit in the Trust Accounts will be subject to the lien granted to the Indenture Trustee for the benefit of the Secured Parties pursuant to this Agreement and (ii) the Issuer is the legal owner of the amounts on deposit in the Trust Accounts and not the Single Owner).  The Issuer agrees to notify the Indenture Trustee  in writing promptly following any change in the status of the Issuer as an entity  that is disregarded from a single owner that is a domestic corporation and will provide such tax documentation that is required under the Code, Treasury Regulations or similar provisions of local income tax provisions (together, the “Tax Law”) by any change in its status.  As of the Closing Date, the Single Owner shall provide the Paying Agent with an IRS Form W-9 and  any additional IRS forms  and documentation needed  to permit the Paying Agent to fulfill its tax reporting obligations under the Tax Law with respect to the Trust Accounts and will thereafter provide such additional or updated IRS Forms and documentation as reasonably requested by the Paying Agent or as required under the Tax Law. Deutsche Bank, both in its individual capacity and in its capacity as Paying Agent or in any other capacity under the Transaction Documents, shall have no liability to the Single Owner or any other person in connection with any tax withholding amounts paid or withheld from the Trust Accounts pursuant to the Tax Law arising from the Single Owner’s or other person’s failure to timely provide an accurate, correct and complete IRS Form W-9 or such other documentation contemplated under this paragraph.

89

The Indenture Trustee or its Affiliates are permitted to receive additional compensation that could be deemed to be for the Indenture Trustee’s  economic self-interest for (a) serving as investment adviser, administrator, shareholder, servicing agent, custodian or sub-custodian with respect to certain of the Permitted Investments and Sinking Fund Permitted Investments, (b) using Affiliates to effect transactions in certain Permitted Investments and Sinking Fund Permitted Investments and (c) effecting transactions in certain Permitted Investments and Sinking Fund Permitted Investments.  Such compensation is not payable or reimbursable under this Indenture.
 
The Indenture Trustee is hereby directed to enter into any Closing Agreement and any Assignment and Recognition Agreement executed by the Administrative Agent.
 
Section 4.2.
Collections and Disbursements of Advances by Servicer.
 
(a)         Daily Deposits of Advance Reimbursement Amounts.  Each Servicer shall deposit all Advance Reimbursement Amounts to its clearing account, and shall cause each Subservicer to deposit any Advance Reimbursement Amounts it collects to its clearing account, within one (1) Business Day after its receipt thereof.  Each Servicer, for and on behalf of the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders, shall remit or cause each applicable Subservicer to remit, into the Collection and Funding Account all Advance Reimbursement Amounts collected by the applicable Servicer or Subservicer pursuant to any Designated Servicing Agreement, no later than two (2) Business Days after such Servicer’s or Subservicer’s deposit thereof into its clearing account; provided, however, that if a Designated Servicing Agreement requires the related Servicer to remit such amounts to a Custodial Account, such Servicer or the applicable Subservicer shall deposit such collections to such Custodial Account no later than two (2) Business Days after collection thereof by such Servicer or Subservicer, and shall cause such amounts to be remitted directly (unless such Servicer has provided notice to the Administrative Agent as contemplated in the immediately following sentence) from such Custodial Account(s) to the Initial Collection Account (which amounts shall afterwards be deposited into the Collection and Funding Account within one (1) Business Day of deposit into the Initial Collection Account) or to the Collection and Funding Account no later than two (2) Business Days after such amounts are deposited into the clearing account.  If the applicable Servicer or Subservicer, as applicable, remits Collections through one or more intermediate steps in the course of transfer from its clearing account to the related Custodial Account, or from the related Custodial Account to the Collection and Funding Account, such Servicer shall identify each such account in writing to the Administrative Agent.  The Indenture Trustee shall deposit to the Collection and Funding Account all Advance Reimbursement Amounts it receives from each Servicer daily.  To the extent the Indenture Trustee receives for deposit Advance Reimbursement Amounts in the Collection and Funding Account later than 2:00 p.m. New York City Time on a Business Day, such funds shall be deemed to have been received on the following Business Day.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, after any Servicer shall have remitted to the Collection and Funding Account, Advance Reimbursement Amounts in respect of P&I Advances made under a Designated Servicing Agreement in an amount sufficient to reimburse all P&I Advances that were made under such Designated Servicing Agreement using funds other than Amounts Held for Future Distribution, such Servicer may leave additional Advance Reimbursement Amounts collected with respect to such Designated Servicing Agreement in the related Custodial Account and use such funds to reimburse Amounts Held for Future Distribution as required pursuant to Section 4.2(c). The Initial Collection Account shall at all times qualify as an Eligible Account. If, at any time, the Initial Collection Account has ceased to qualify as an Eligible Account, the applicable Servicer shall within sixty (60) days of the actual knowledge of a Responsible Officer of such Servicer or through receipt of written notice to such Servicer that Initial Collection Account has ceased to qualify as an Eligible Account, establish a new Initial Collection Account qualifying as an Eligible Account and transfer any cash and any investments on deposit into such newly established Initial Collection Account.

90

(b)        Payment Dates.  On each Payment Date, the Indenture Trustee shall transfer from the Collection and Funding Account to the Note Payment Account all funds then on deposit therein.  Except in the case of Redemption Amounts, which may be remitted by the Issuer directly to the Note Payment Account, none of the applicable Servicer, the applicable Subservicer, the Administrator, the Issuer, the Calculation Agent nor the Indenture Trustee shall remit to the Note Payment Account, and each shall take all reasonable actions to prevent other Persons from remitting to the Note Payment Account, amounts which do not constitute payments, collections or recoveries received, made or realized in respect of the Receivables or the initial cash deposited by the Noteholders with the Indenture Trustee on the date hereof, and the Indenture Trustee will return to the Issuer or the applicable Servicer any such amounts upon receiving written evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee that such amounts are not a part of the Trust Estate.
 
(c)         Restoration of Amounts Held for Future Distribution.  Each Servicer generally has the right to remit amounts held for distribution to the MBS Trustee in a future month (“Amounts Held for Future Distribution”) on deposit in each Custodial Account, to the related MBS Trustee as part of the applicable Servicer’s monthly P&I Advances required under the related Designated Servicing Agreement.  Such Servicer shall deposit the full amount of any Amount Held for Future Distribution with respect to each Designated Servicing Agreement that were so used by the applicable Servicer (or the applicable Subservicer on its behalf), in any month, back into the related Custodial Account, to the extent not restored already out of Advance Reimbursement Amounts, by no later than the date on which such Servicer would have been required to remit such amount to the related MBS Trustee as a current monthly Mortgage Loan collection, or earlier if so required under the related Servicing Agreement.  If the applicable Servicer fails to restore any such Amount Held for Future Distribution at the time when it is required to do so pursuant to this Section 4.2(c), and does not correct such failure within one (1) Business Day, then such Servicer covenants hereunder that it shall no longer use any Amounts Held for Future Distribution in making any of its P&I Advances at any time on or after such failure.
 
(d)         Delegated Authority to Make P&I Advances.  Each Receivables Seller and each Servicer hereby irrevocably appoint the Noteholder(s) of any Outstanding VFN with the authority (but no obligation) to make any P&I Advance on the applicable Servicer’s behalf to the extent such Servicer fails to make such P&I Advance when required to do so pursuant to the related Designated Servicing Agreement.

91

Section 4.3.
Funding of Additional Receivables.
 
(a)         Funding Certifications.  By no later than 1:00 p.m. New York City time on the first (1st) Business Day prior to each Funding Date (or such other time as may be agreed to from time to time by the Administrator, the Indenture Trustee and the Administrative Agent), the Administrator or the Sub-Administrator on behalf of the Administrator shall prepare and deliver to the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee, the Calculation Agent and the Administrative Agent (and, on any Interim Payment Date, each applicable VFN Noteholder) a certification (each, a “Funding Certification”) containing a list of each Funding Condition and presenting a yes or no answer beside each indicating whether such Funding Condition has been satisfied and shall state in writing the amount to be funded on that Funding Date.
 
(b)         VFN Draws, Discretionary Paydowns and Permanent Reductions.
 
With respect to each VFN:
 
(i)          By no later than 1:00 p.m. New York City time on the Business Day prior to any Interim Payment Date or Payment Date during the Revolving Period for such VFN on which any applicable Variable Funding Note Class is Outstanding, the Issuer may deliver, or cause to be delivered, to each Noteholder of such Variable Funding Notes and to the Indenture Trustee a report (a “VFN Note Balance Adjustment Request”) for such upcoming Funding Date, requesting such Noteholders to fund a VFN Principal Balance increase on any Class or Classes of VFNs in the amount(s) specified in such request, which request shall instruct the Indenture Trustee to recognize an increase in the related VFN Principal Balance, but not in excess of the lesser of (x) the related Maximum VFN Principal Balance or (y) the amount that would cause the Collateral Test to be violated.  The VFN Note Balance Adjustment Request shall also state the amount, if any, of any principal payment to be made on each Outstanding Class of VFNs on the upcoming Interim Payment Date or Payment Date.
 
(ii)       From time to time, but not exceeding once per calendar month, during the Revolving Period for such VFN, the Issuer may notify the Administrative Agent of a permanent reduction in the Maximum VFN Principal Balance by indicating such reduction on the VFN Note Balance Adjustment Request.  Following such permanent reduction, the applicable VFN Noteholders shall only be required to fund increases in the VFN Principal Balance up to such reduced Maximum VFN Principal Balance.  Furthermore, following a reduction in the Maximum VFN Principal Balance pursuant to this clause (ii), the Issuer shall not at any time be permitted to request an increase in the Maximum VFN Principal Balance.

92

(iii)        If the related Funding Certification indicates that all Funding Conditions have been met, the applicable VFN Noteholders shall fund the VFN Principal Balance increase by remitting pro rata (based on such Noteholder’s percentage of the Maximum VFN Principal Balance) the amount stated in the request to the Indenture Trustee by 12:00 p.m. (noon) New York City time on the related Funding Date, whereupon the Indenture Trustee shall adjust its records to reflect the increase of the VFN Principal Balance (which increase shall be the aggregate of the amounts received by the Indenture Trustee from the applicable VFN Noteholders) by the later of (i) 2:00 p.m. New York City time on such Funding Date or (ii) two hours after the receipt by the Indenture Trustee of such funds from the VFN Noteholders, so long as, after such increase and after giving effect any Receivables to be purchased, the Collateral Test will continue to be satisfied, determined based on the VFN Note Balance Adjustment Request and Determination Date Report.  The Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to rely conclusively on any VFN Note Balance Adjustment Request and the related Determination Date Report and Funding Certification.  The Indenture Trustee shall make available on its website to the Issuer or its designee and each applicable VFN Noteholder, notice on such Funding Date as reasonably requested by the Issuer of any increase in the VFN Principal Balance.  The Indenture Trustee shall apply and remit any such payment by the VFN Noteholders toward the payment of the related New Receivables Funding Amounts and (if applicable) Excess Receivables Funding Amounts as described in Section 4.3(c).  If on any Funding Date there is more than one Series with Outstanding Variable Funding Notes, VFN draws on such Funding Date shall be made on a pro rata basis among all applicable Outstanding Series of VFNs in their Revolving Periods based on their respective available Borrowing Capacities, unless otherwise provided in the related Indenture Supplement and Note Purchase Agreement.  If any VFN Noteholder does not fund its share of a requested VFN draw, one or more other VFN Noteholders may fund all or a portion of such draw, but no other VFN Noteholder shall have any obligation to do so.  Draws on VFNs of different Classes within the same Series need not be drawn pro rata relative to each other.  Any draws under any VFNs shall be used only (i) to purchase new Receivables pursuant to the Receivables Pooling Agreement or an Assignment and Recognition Agreement and (ii) to provide funding in respect of Excess Receivables Funding Amounts, in each case, in a manner that would not be in violation of any term hereof (including, without limitation, in a manner that would result in a material adverse United States federal income tax consequence to the Trust Estate or any Noteholders).
 
(c)          Payment of New Receivables Funding Amounts.
 
(i)         Subject to its receipt of a duly executed Funding Certification from the Administrator pursuant to Section 4.3(a) stating that all Funding Conditions have been satisfied, the Indenture Trustee shall remit to the Issuer (or the Issuer’s designee), by the close of business New York City time on each Funding Date, the amount of (x) the aggregate New Receivables Funding Amount for Additional Receivables to be funded on such Funding Date and (y) any other amounts to be drawn on the VFNs on such date in respect of Excess Receivables Funding Amounts without causing the related VFN Principal Balance to exceed either (I) the related Maximum VFN Principal Balance or (II) the amount that would cause the Collateral Test not be satisfied, using the following sources of funding in the following order:
 
(A)          any funds on deposit in the Collection and Funding Account minus the Required Expense Reserve,
 
(B)          if such Funding Date is a Payment Date, Available Funds allocated for such purpose pursuant to Section 4.5(a)(1)(vii),

93

(C)          if such Funding Date is an Interim Payment Date, Available Funds allocated for such purpose pursuant to Section 4.4(e); and

(e)        On any Payment Date, after payment of all amounts pursuant to Section 4.5(a), if the Collateral Test is not satisfied, the Indenture Trustee shall withdraw from each Series Reserve Account the amount by which the amount standing to the credit of such Series Reserve Account exceeds the related Series Reserve Required Amount, and shall apply such excess to reduce the Note Balances of the Notes of the related Series, pursuant to Section 4.5.  Such principal payments shall be made pro rata based on Note Balances to multiple Classes within a Series, except that in a Full Amortization Period such principal payment shall be made in accordance with the terms and provisions of the related Indenture Supplement.  On any Payment Date following the payment in full of all principal payable in respect of the related Series or Class of Notes, the Indenture Trustee shall withdraw any remaining amounts from the related Series Reserve Account and distribute it to the Depositor as holder of the Owner Trust Certificate.  Amounts paid to the Depositor or its designee pursuant to the preceding sentence shall be released from the Security Interest.
 
(f)          If on any Funding Date, the amount on deposit in one or more Series Reserve Accounts is less than the related Series Reserve Required Amounts, then the Administrator may direct the Indenture Trustee to transfer from the Collection and Funding Account to such Series Reserve Accounts an amount equal to the amount by which the respective Series Reserve Required Amounts exceed the respective amounts then on deposit in the related Series Reserve Accounts.
 
(g)         For the avoidance of doubt, any funds on deposit in any Series Reserve Account or any Derivative Account are to be applied to make any required payments in respect of the related Series or Class of Notes only, and no other Series or Class of Notes shall have any interest or claim against such amounts on deposit.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any Series or Class of Notes is deemed to have an interest or claim on the funds on deposit in the Series Reserve Account or the Derivative Account established for another Series, it shall not receive any amounts on deposit in such Series Reserve Account or Derivative Account unless and until the Series or Class of Notes related to such Series Reserve Account or Derivative Account are paid in full and are no longer Outstanding.  The provisions of this Section 4.6(g) constitute a “subordination agreement” for purposes of Section 510(a) of the Bankruptcy Code.

(e)          The Administrator on behalf of the Issuer may, in its sole and absolute discretion, from time to time on or after the Closing Date, direct the Indenture Trustee pursuant to an Issuer Certificate to establish a Sinking Fund Account for any Class of Notes and upon receipt by the Indenture Trustee of such direction, the Indenture Trustee shall establish and maintain each such Sinking Fund Account specified by the Administrator on behalf of the Issuer in its direction to the Indenture Trustee, which shall be an Eligible Account, for the benefit of the Secured Parties.  Any direction by the Administrator on behalf of the Issuer to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to an Issuer Certificate to establish a Sinking Fund Account shall include a specification by the Issuer of the Class to which such Sinking Fund Account shall relate.  If any such account loses its status as an Eligible Account, the funds in such account shall be moved to an account that qualifies as an Eligible Account within thirty (30) days.  The Indenture Trustee shall deposit and withdraw Available Funds from a Sinking Fund Account pursuant to, and to the extent required by, Section 4.5.  During the Full Amortization Period all amounts on deposit in the Sinking Fund Accounts with respect to Sinking Fund Classes will be available for the benefit of all Outstanding Notes in accordance with the definition of “Series Available Funds”.

Section 4.9.
Securities Accounts.
 
(a)          Securities Intermediary.  The Issuer and the Indenture Trustee hereby appoint Deutsche Bank, as Securities Intermediary with respect to the Trust Accounts.  The Security Entitlements and all Financial Assets credited to the Trust Accounts, including without limitation all amounts, securities, investments, Financial Assets, investment property and other property from time to time deposited in or credited to such account and all proceeds thereof, held from time to time in the Trust Accounts will continue to be held by the Securities Intermediary for the Indenture Trustee for the benefit of the Secured Parties.  Upon the termination of this Indenture, the Indenture Trustee shall inform the Securities Intermediary of such termination.  By acceptance of their Notes or interests therein, the Noteholders and all beneficial owners of Notes shall be deemed to have appointed Deutsche Bank, as Securities Intermediary.  Deutsche Bank hereby accepts such appointment as Securities Intermediary.
 
(i)          With respect to any portion of the Trust Estate that is credited to the Trust Accounts, the Securities Intermediary agrees that:
 
(A)          with respect to any portion of the Trust Estate that is held in deposit accounts, each such deposit account shall be subject to the security interest granted pursuant to this Indenture, and the Securities Intermediary shall comply with instructions originated by the Indenture Trustee directing dispositions of funds in the deposit accounts without further consent of the Issuer and otherwise shall be subject to the exclusive custody and control of the Securities Intermediary, and the Securities Intermediary shall have sole signature authority with respect thereto;
 
(B)          any and all property credited to the Trust Accounts shall be treated by the Securities Intermediary as Financial Assets;
 
(C)         any portion of the Trust Estate that is, or is treated as, a Financial Asset shall be physically delivered (accompanied by any required endorsements) to, or credited to an account in the name of, the Securities Intermediary or other eligible institution maintaining any Trust Account in accordance with the Securities Intermediary’s customary procedures such that the Securities Intermediary or such other institution establishes a Security Entitlement in favor of the Indenture Trustee with respect thereto over which the Securities Intermediary or such other institution has “control” (as defined in the UCC); and

107

(D)          it will use reasonable efforts to promptly notify the Indenture Trustee and the Issuer if any other Person claims that it has a property interest in a Financial Asset in any Trust Account and that it is a violation of that Person’s rights for anyone else to hold, transfer or deal with such Financial Asset.
 
(ii)         The Securities Intermediary hereby confirms that (A) each Trust Account is an account to which Financial Assets are or may be credited, and the Securities Intermediary shall, subject to the terms of this Indenture treat the Indenture Trustee as entitled to exercise the rights that comprise any Financial Asset credited to any Trust Account, (B) any portion of the Trust Estate in respect of any Trust Account will be promptly credited by the Securities Intermediary to such account, and (C) all securities or other property underlying any Financial Assets credited to any Trust Account shall be registered in the name of the Securities Intermediary, endorsed to the Securities Intermediary or in blank or credited to another securities account maintained in the name of the Securities Intermediary, and in no case will any Financial Asset credited to any Trust Account be registered in the name of the Issuer or the Administrator, payable to the order of the Issuer or the Administrator or specially endorsed to any of such Persons.
 
(iii)        If at any time the Securities Intermediary shall receive an Entitlement Order from the Indenture Trustee directing transfer or redemption of any Financial Asset relating to any Trust Account, the Securities Intermediary shall comply with such Entitlement Order without further consent by the Issuer or the Administrator or any other Person.  If at any time the Indenture Trustee notifies the Securities Intermediary in writing that this Indenture has been discharged in accordance herewith, then thereafter if the Securities Intermediary shall receive any order from the Issuer directing transfer or redemption of any Financial Asset relating to any Trust Account, the Securities Intermediary shall comply with such Entitlement Order without further consent by the Indenture Trustee or any other Person.
 
(iv)        In the event that the Securities Intermediary has or subsequently obtains by agreement, operation of law or otherwise a security interest in any Account or any Financial Asset or Security Entitlement credited thereto, the Securities Intermediary hereby agrees that such security interest shall be subordinate to the security interest of the Indenture Trustee.  The Financial Assets and Security Entitlements credited to the Accounts will not be subject to deduction, set-off, banker’s lien, or any other right in favor of any Person other than the Indenture Trustee in the case of the Trust Accounts.
 
(v)         There are no other agreements entered into between the Securities Intermediary in such capacity, and the Securities Intermediary agrees that it will not enter into any agreement with, the Issuer, the Administrator, or any other Person (other than the Indenture Trustee) with respect to any Trust Account.  In the event of any conflict between this Indenture (or any provision of this Indenture) and any other agreement now existing or hereafter entered into, the terms of this Indenture shall prevail.

108

(vi)        The rights and powers granted herein to the Indenture Trustee have been granted in order to perfect its interest in the Trust Accounts and the Security Entitlements to the Financial Assets credited thereto, and are powers coupled with an interest and will not be affected by the bankruptcy of the Issuer, the Administrator or any Receivables Seller nor by the lapse of time.  The obligations of the Securities Intermediary hereunder shall continue in effect until the interest of the Indenture Trustee in the Trust Accounts and in such Security Entitlements, has been terminated pursuant to the terms of this Indenture and the Indenture Trustee has notified the Securities Intermediary of such termination in writing.
 
(b)         Definitions; Choice of Law.  Capitalized terms used in this Section 4.9 and not defined herein shall have the meanings assigned to such terms in the New York UCC.  This Indenture and the establishment and maintenance of the Trust Accounts and all interests, duties, rights and obligations related thereto and any claim, controversy or matter whatsoever arising under this Indenture (whether based in contract, tort or otherwise)  shall be governed solely by the law of the State of New York, including the New York UCC, and for purposes of Section 8–110(e) of the New York UCC, the “securities intermediary’s jurisdiction” shall be the State of New York.  As permitted by Article 4 of the Hague Convention on the Law Applicable to Certain Rights in Respect of Securities Held with an Intermediary (the “Hague Convention”), the parties hereto designate, acknowledge and further agree that: (i) the Securities Intermediary is an “intermediary” (as defined in Article 1(1)(c) of the Hague Convention), (ii) this Indenture is an “account agreement” (as defined in Article 1(1)(e) of the Hague Convention) and this Indenture is the only such “account agreement” relating to the Trust Accounts, (iii) the Issuer is the “account holder” (as defined in Article 1(1)(d) of the Hague Convention) with respect to the Trust Accounts and (iv) the only law which is applicable to all of the issues specified in Article 2(1) of the Hague Convention is the law of the State of New York, which shall govern each such issue and each Trust Account.
 
(c)         Limitation on Liability.  None of the Securities Intermediary or any director, officer, employee or agent of the Securities Intermediary shall be under any liability to the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders for any action taken, or not taken, in good faith pursuant to this Indenture, or for errors in judgment; provided, however, that this provision shall not protect the Securities Intermediary against any liability to the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders which would otherwise be imposed by reason of the Securities Intermediary’s willful misconduct, bad faith or negligence in the performance of its obligations or duties hereunder.  The Securities Intermediary and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Securities Intermediary may rely in good faith on any document of any kind which, on its face, is properly executed and submitted by any Person respecting any matters arising hereunder.  The Securities Intermediary shall be under no duty to inquire into or investigate the validity, accuracy or content of such document.
 
(d)         Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Securities Intermediary.  The Securities Intermediary represents and warrants that, as of the date hereof, the Securities Intermediary has a physical office in the United States and is engaged in a business or other regular activity of maintaining securities accounts.  The Securities Intermediary agrees that, at such time as this Indenture is amended, it shall notify the parties if it no longer maintains a physical office in the United States and is no longer engaged in a business or other regular activity of maintaining securities accounts.

109

Section 4.10.
Notice of Adverse Claims.
 
Except for the claims and interests of the Secured Parties in the Trust Accounts, the Securities Intermediary has no actual knowledge of any claim to, or interest in, any Trust Account or in any financial asset credited thereto.  If any Person asserts any lien, encumbrance or adverse claim (including any writ, garnishment, judgment, warrant of attachment, execution or similar process) against any Trust Account or in any financial asset carried therein of which a Responsible Officer of the Securities Intermediary has actual knowledge, the Securities Intermediary will promptly notify the Noteholders, the Indenture Trustee and the Issuer thereof.
 
Section 4.11.
No Gross Up.
 
No Person, including the Issuer, shall be obligated to pay any additional amounts to the Noteholders or Note Owners as a result of any withholding or deduction for, or on account of, any present or future taxes, duties, assessments or governmental charges.  In addition, the Indenture Trustee will withhold on payments of Undrawn Fees to Non-U.S. Noteholders unless such Noteholder provides a correct, complete and executed U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-8ECI or is eligible for benefits under an income tax treaty with the United States that eliminates U.S. federal income taxation on U.S. source Undrawn Fees and such Non-U.S. Noteholder provides a correct, complete and executed U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E.  The Indenture Trustee may rely on such U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-8ECI, W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E to evidence the Noteholders’ eligibility.
 
Section 4.12.
Full Amortization Period; Target Amortization Events.
 
Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Revolving Period or Target Amortization Period for all Classes and Series of the Notes shall automatically terminate and the Full Amortization Period for all Outstanding Notes shall commence without further action on the part of any Person, unless, together, the Majority Noteholders of all Outstanding Notes that are not Variable Funding Notes and the Series Required Noteholders for each Series of Variable Funding Notes that are Outstanding, plus the Administrative Agent,  notify the Indenture Trustee that they have waived the occurrence of such Event of Default and consent to the continuation of the Revolving Period or Target Amortization Period, as the case may be, for each Outstanding Series that is still in its Revolving Period or Target Amortization Period; provided, however, an Event of Default under clause 8.1(c), (g)(i) or (k) shall not occur and the Full Amortization Period shall not commence until the earlier of: (A) (I) in the case of clause (k), the 60th day from the delivery of a report from the Administrator or the applicable Servicer demonstrating non-compliance with the Collateral Test (in any case, so  long as the Collateral Test remains out of compliance on such 60th day), (II) in the case of clause (c), the 60th day following the occurrence thereof (in any case, so  long as such Event of Default remains continuing on such 60th day) or (III) in the case of clause (g)(i), the 30th day following the occurrence thereof (in any case, so  long as such Event of Default remains continuing on such 30th day), and (B) the day on which any of the Administrative Agent, the Majority Noteholders of all Outstanding Notes that are not Variable Funding Notes or the Series Required Noteholders for any Series of Variable Funding Notes that are Outstanding have provided notice thereof to the Indenture Trustee stating that, because of such event, the Full Amortization Period shall commence. For the avoidance of doubt, the obligation of the Issuer to pay or reserve any Default Supplemental Fee or Cumulative Default Supplemental Fee Shortfall Amounts shall begin only upon the occurrence of an Event of Default and commencement of the Full Amortization Period as described in Section 4.12.

110

Upon the occurrence of a Target Amortization Event with respect to a Class or Series, unless otherwise provided in the Indenture Supplement, the related Target Amortization Period shall be deemed to commence when the Administrator or the Administrative Agent has provided written notice thereof to the Indenture Trustee stating that the Notes of such Class or Series shall enter their Target Amortization Periods and as a result shall be paid principal in Target Amortization Amounts under Section 4.5(a)(1)(v) on subsequent Payment Dates, unless the requisite parties pursuant to the Indenture Supplement related to that Series notify the Indenture Trustee that they have waived the occurrence of such Target Amortization Event and consent to the continuation of the Revolving Periods (in the case of any Notes still in their Revolving Periods prior to the occurrence of such Target Amortization Event); provided that no Series of VFNs may continue its Revolving Period unless all outstanding Series of VFNs consent to continuation of their Revolving Periods; provided further that if a Target Amortization  Event occurs under a Series of Variable Funding Notes and is also a Target Amortization Event under a Series of Term Notes that can become effective upon written notice to the Indenture Trustee from the Administrative Agent, and if such Administrative Agent does not waive the corresponding Target Amortization Event under such Series of Variable Funding Notes, it shall send written notice to the Indenture Trustee to commence any related Target Amortization Event under such Series of Term Notes; provided further that if the Administrative Agent waives a Target Amortization Event under a Series of Variable Funding Notes, it will take no action with respect to the related Target Amortization Event under any Series of Term Notes that contain a similar Target Amortization Event that requires affirmative action to commence, and any such Target Amortization Event will only commence upon an affirmative vote of the Series Required Noteholders for such Series of Term Notes. The Administrator shall notify the Indenture Trustee and the Administrative Agent immediately upon its becoming aware of the occurrence of any Event of Default or Target Amortization Event (including notice of an event described in the definition of Target Amortization Event that only occurs upon an affirmative vote of either the Administrative Agent or the Series Required Noteholders). The Administrative Agent shall use commercially reasonable efforts to notify the Indenture Trustee and each Derivative Counterparty (as applicable in the case of any Target Amortization Event, with respect to the related Series of Notes) promptly upon becoming aware of the occurrence of any Event of Default or Target Amortization Event. For the avoidance of doubt, the obligation for the Issuer to pay or reserve any Default Supplemental Fee or Cumulative Default Supplemental Fee Shortfall Amounts shall begin only upon the commencement of the Full Amortization Period as described in Section 4.12.

(b)         Transfers of Global Notes only to Depository Nominees.  Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section 5.4 or of Section 6.5, and subject to the provisions of paragraph (c) below, unless the terms of a Global Note or the applicable Indenture Supplement expressly permit such Global Note to be exchanged in whole or in part for individual Notes, a Global Note may be transferred, in whole but not in part and in the manner provided in Section 6.5, only to a nominee of the Depository for such Global Note, or to the Depository, or a successor Depository for such Global Note selected or approved by the Issuer, or to a nominee of such successor Depository.
 
(c)        Limited Right to Receive Definitive Notes.  Except under the limited circumstances described below, Note Owners of beneficial interests in Global Notes will not be entitled to receive Definitive Notes.  With respect to Notes issued within the United States, unless otherwise specified in the applicable Indenture Supplement, or with respect to Notes issued outside the United States, if specified in the applicable Indenture Supplement:
 
(i)          If at any time the Depository for a Global Note notifies the Issuer that it is unwilling or unable to continue to act as Depository for such Global Note or if at any time the Depository for the Notes for such Series or Class ceases to be a Clearing Corporation, the Issuer will appoint a successor Depository with respect to such Global Note.  If a successor Depository for such Global Note is not appointed by the Issuer within ninety (90) days after the Issuer receives such notice or becomes aware of such ineligibility, the Issuer will execute, and the Indenture Trustee or its agent will, in accordance with Section 6.3 and with the Issuer Certificate delivered to the Indenture Trustee or its agent under Section 6.3 requesting the authentication and delivery of individual Notes of such Series or Class in exchange for such Global Note, will authenticate and deliver, individual Notes of such Series or Class of like tenor and terms in an aggregate Initial Note Balance equal to the Initial Note Balance of the Global Note in exchange for such Global Note.
 
(ii)         The Issuer may at any time and in its sole discretion determine that the Notes of any Series or Class or portion thereof issued or issuable in the form of one or more Global Notes will no longer be represented by such Global Note or Notes.  In such event the Issuer will execute, and the Indenture Trustee or its agent in accordance with Section 6.3 and with the Issuer Certificate delivered to the Indenture Trustee or its agent under Section 6.3 for the authentication and delivery of individual Notes of such Series or Class in exchange in whole or in part for such Global Note, will authenticate and deliver individual Notes of such Series or Class of like tenor and terms in definitive form in an aggregate Initial Note Balance equal to the Initial Note Balance of such Global Note or Notes representing such Series or Class or portion thereof in exchange for such Global Note or Notes.

(v)         In any exchange provided for in any of the preceding four paragraphs, the Issuer will execute and the Indenture Trustee or its agent will, in accordance with Section 6.3 and with the Issuer Certificate delivered to the Indenture Trustee or its agent under Section 6.3, authenticate and deliver Definitive Notes in definitive registered form in authorized denominations.  Upon the exchange of the entire Initial Note Balance of a Global Note for Definitive Notes, such Global Note will be canceled by the Indenture Trustee or its agent.  Except as provided in the preceding paragraphs, Notes issued in exchange for a Global Note pursuant to this Section will be registered in such names and in such authorized denominations as the Depository for such Global Note, pursuant to instructions from its direct or indirect participants or otherwise, will instruct the Indenture Trustee or the Note Registrar.  The Indenture Trustee or the Note Registrar will deliver such Notes to the Persons in whose names such Notes are so registered.

(c)         Issuer Obligations.  All Notes issued upon any transfer or exchange of Notes will be the valid and legally binding obligations of the Issuer, evidencing the same debt, and entitled to the same benefits under this Indenture, as the Notes surrendered upon such transfer or exchange.
 
(d)         Endorsement of Notes to be Transferred or Exchanged.  Every Note presented or surrendered for transfer or exchange will (if so required by the Issuer, the Note Registrar or the Indenture Trustee) be duly indorsed, or be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee, and the Note Registrar duly executed, by the Noteholder thereof or such Noteholder’s attorney duly authorized in writing, with such signature guaranteed by an “eligible guarantor institution” meeting the requirements of the Securities Transfer Agent’s Medallion Program (“STAMP”).
 
(e)          No Service Charge.  Unless otherwise provided in the Note to be transferred or exchanged, no service charge will be assessed against any Noteholder for any transfer or exchange of Notes, but the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee, and the Note Registrar may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any transfer or exchange of Notes before the transfer or exchange will be complete, other than exchanges pursuant to Section 5.4 not involving any transfer.
 
(f)        Deemed Representations by Transferees of Rule 144A Notes.  Each transferee (including the Initial Noteholder or Owner) of a Rule 144A Note or of a beneficial interest therein shall be deemed by accepting such Note or beneficial interest, to have made all the certifications, representations and warranties set forth in the Transferee Certificate attached to Exhibit B-1 attached hereto.
 
(g)         Deemed Representations by Transferees of Regulation S Notes.  Each transferee (including the initial Noteholder or Owner) of a Regulation S Note or of a beneficial therein shall be deemed by accepting such Note or beneficial interest, to have made all the certifications, representations and warranties set forth in the Transferee Certificate attached to Exhibit B-2 attached hereto.
 
(h)        Conditions to Transfer.  No sale, pledge or other transfer (a “Transfer”) of any Notes shall be made unless that Transfer is made pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act and effective registration or qualification under applicable state securities laws or is made in a transaction that does not require such registration or qualification.  If a Transfer is made without registration under the Securities Act (other than in connection with the initial issuance thereof by the Issuer), then the Note Registrar, the Indenture Trustee, Administrator, on behalf of the Issuer, shall refuse to register such Transfer unless the Note Registrar receives either:

121

(i)          the Regulation S Note Transfer Certificate or Rule 144A Note Transfer Certificate and such other information as may be required pursuant to this Section 6.5; or
 
(ii)         if the Transfer is to be made to an Issuer Affiliate in a transaction that is exempt from registration under the Securities Act, an Opinion of Counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Issuer and the Note Registrar to the effect that such Transfer may be made without registration under the Securities Act (which Opinion of Counsel shall not be an expense of the Trust Estate or of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or the Note Registrar in their respective capacities as such).
 
None of the Administrator, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or the Note Registrar is obligated to register or qualify the Notes under the Securities Act or any other securities law or to take any action not otherwise required under this Indenture to permit the transfer of any Note without registration or qualification.  Any Noteholder of a Note desiring to effect such a Transfer shall, and upon acquisition of such a Note shall be deemed to have agreed to indemnify the Indenture Trustee, the Note Registrar, the Administrator, any applicable Servicer and the Issuer against any liability that may result if the Transfer is not so exempt or is not made in accordance with the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
 
In connection with any Transfer of Notes in reliance on Rule 144A, the Administrator shall furnish upon request of a Noteholder to such Noteholder and any prospective purchaser designated by such Noteholder the information required to be delivered under paragraph (d)(4) of Rule 144A.
 
In the event that a Note is transferred to a Person that does not meet the requirements of this Section 6.5 and/or the requirements of the related Indenture Supplement, such transfer will be of no force and effect, will be void ab initio, and will not operate to transfer any right to such Person, notwithstanding any instructions to the contrary to the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or any intermediary; and the Indenture Trustee shall not make any payment on such Note for as long as such Person is the Noteholder of such Note and the Indenture Trustee shall have the right to compel such Person to transfer such Note to a Person who does meet the requirements of this Section 6.5.
 
(i)          Transfers of Ownership Interests in Global Notes.  Transfers of beneficial interests in a Global Note representing Book-Entry Notes may be made only in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Depository (and, in the case of a Regulation S Global Note, only to beneficial owners who are not “U.S. persons” (as such term is defined in Regulation S) in accordance with the rules and regulations of Euroclear or Clearstream) and the transfer restrictions contained in the legend on such Global Note and exchanges or transfers of interests in a Global Note may be made only in accordance with the following:

124

(k)          ERISA Restrictions.  Neither the Note Registrar nor the Indenture Trustee shall register the Transfer of any Definitive Notes (other than a Specified Note, unless otherwise provided in the related Indenture Supplement) unless the prospective transferee has delivered to the Indenture Trustee and the Note Registrar a certification to the effect that either (i) it is not, and is not acquiring, holding or transferring the Notes, or any interest therein, or any interest therein on behalf of, or using assets of, an “employee benefit plan” as defined in Section 3(3) of ERISA, a plan described in section 4975(e)(1) of the Code, an entity which is deemed to hold the assets of any such employee benefit plan or plan pursuant to 29 C.F.R. Section 2510.3-101 as modified by Section 3(42) of ERISA (the “Plan Asset Regulations”), which employee benefit plan, plan or entity is subject to Title I of ERISA or section 4975 of the Code, or a governmental, non-U.S. or church plan which is subject to any U.S. federal, state, local or other law that is substantially similar to Title I of ERISA or section 4975 of the Code (“Similar Law”) (collectively, an “Employee Benefit Plan”), or (ii) (A) as of the date of transfer or purchase, the Notes are rated at least investment grade, it believes that such Notes are properly treated as indebtedness without substantial equity features for purposes of the Plan Asset Regulations and agrees to so treat such Notes and (B) the Transferee’s acquisition, holding or disposition of the Notes or any interest therein will satisfy the requirements of Prohibited Transaction Class Exemption (“PTCE”) 84-14 (relating to transactions effected by a qualified professional asset manager), PTCE 90-1 (relating to investments by insurance company pooled separate accounts), PTCE 91-38 (relating to investments in bank collective investment funds), PTCE 95-60 (relating to transactions involving insurance company general accounts), PTCE 96-23 (relating to transactions directed by an in-house professional asset manager) or the statutory prohibited transaction exemption for service providers set forth in Section 408(b)(17) of ERISA and Section 4975(d)(20) of the Code or a similar class or statutory exemption and will not result in a non-exempt prohibited transaction under Section 406 of ERISA or section 4975 of the Code (or, in the case of a governmental, non-U.S. or church plan subject to such Similar Law, will not violate any such Similar Law).  In the case of any Book-Entry Note, each transferee of such Note or any beneficial interest therein by virtue of its acquisition of such Note will be deemed to represent either (i) or (ii) above.  Neither the Note Registrar nor the Indenture Trustee shall register the transfer of any Specified Note unless the prospective transferee has delivered to the Indenture Trustee and the Note Registrar a certification to the effect that it is not, and is not acquiring, holding or transferring the Notes or any interest therein on behalf of, or with assets of, an Employee Benefit Plan.
 
(l)          Each prospective owner of a beneficial interest in a Specified Note shall, upon accepting a beneficial interest in the Specified Note, be deemed to make all of the certifications, representations and warranties set forth in the Transferee Certification attached hereto as Exhibit E (in the case of the Class 1 Specified Notes) or Exhibit F (in the case of the Class 2 Specified Notes), as the case may be.
 
(m)        Tax Representation on Class 1 Specified Notes.   Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, no transfer of a beneficial interest in a Class 1 Specified Note shall be effective, and any attempted transfer shall be void ab initio, unless, prior to and as a condition of such transfer, the prospective transferee of the beneficial interest (including the initial transferee of the beneficial interest) and any subsequent transferee of the beneficial interest in a Class 1 Specified Note, represent and warrant, in writing, substantially in the form of the Transferee Certification set forth in Exhibit E, to the Indenture Trustee and the Note Registrar and any of their respective successors or assigns that:

125

(i)          Either (a) it is not and will not become for U.S. federal income tax purposes a partnership, Subchapter S corporation or grantor trust (each such entity a “flow-through entity”) or (b) if it is or becomes a flow-through entity, then (I) none of the direct or indirect beneficial owners of any of the interests in such flow-through entity has or ever will have more than 50% of the value of its interest in such flow-through entity attributable to the beneficial interest of such flow-through entity in the Notes, other interest (direct or indirect) in the Issuer, or any interest created under this Indenture and (II) it is not and will not be a principal purpose of the arrangement involving the flow-through entity’s beneficial interest in any Class 1 Specified Note to permit any partnership to satisfy the 100-partner limitation of Section 1.7704-1(h)(1)(ii) of the Treasury Regulations necessary for such partnership not to be classified as a publicly traded partnership under the Internal Revenue Code.

It will not sell, transfer, assign, participate, or otherwise dispose of any beneficial interest  in the Class 1 Specified Note, or enter into any financial instrument or contract the value of which is determined by reference in whole or in part to any Class 1 Specified Note, in each case if the effect of doing so would be that the beneficial interest of any Person in the Class 1 Specified Note would be in an amount that is less than the minimum denomination for the Class 1 Specified Notes set forth in this Indenture.
 
(iv)        It will not transfer any beneficial interest in the Class 1 Specified Note (directly, through a participation thereof or otherwise) unless, prior to the transfer, the transferee shall have executed and delivered to the Indenture Trustee and the Note Registrar, and any of their respective successors or assigns, a Transferee Certification substantially in the form of Exhibit E of this Indenture.
 
(v)         It will not use any Class 1 Specified Note as collateral for the issuance of any securities that could cause the Trust to become subject to taxation as a taxable mortgage pool taxable as a corporation, publicly traded partnership taxable as a corporation or association taxable as a corporation, each for U.S. federal income tax purposes, provided that it may engage in any repurchase transaction (repo) the subject matter of which is the Class 1 Specified Note provided the terms of such repurchase transaction are generally consistent with prevailing market practice,

(c)          At any time after such a declaration of acceleration has been made or an automatic acceleration has occurred with respect to the Notes of any Series or Class and before a judgment or decree for payment of the money due has been obtained by the Indenture Trustee as hereafter provided in this Article VIII, the Majority Noteholders of all Outstanding Notes, by written notice to the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee, may rescind and annul such declaration and its consequences if:

(ii)         all Events of Default, other than the nonpayment of the principal of such Notes which has become due solely by such acceleration, have been cured or waived as provided in Section 8.15.

Section 8.3.
Collection of Indebtedness and Suits for Enforcement by Indenture Trustee.
 
The Issuer covenants that if:
 
(a)         the Issuer defaults in the payment of interest on any Notes when such interest becomes due and payable and such default continues for a period of thirty-five (35) days following the date on which such interest became due and payable,
 
(b)         the Issuer defaults in the payment of any Target Amortization Amounts when due and payable in accordance with the terms of the Indenture and the related Indenture Supplement; or
 
(c)          the Issuer defaults in the payment of the principal of any Series or Class of Notes on the Stated Maturity Date thereof; then

138

the Issuer will, upon demand of the Indenture Trustee, pay (subject to the allocation provided in Section 4.5(a)(2) hereof and any related Indenture Supplement) to the Indenture Trustee, for the benefit of the Noteholders of any such Notes, the whole amount then due and payable on any such Notes for principal and interest, together with any Cumulative Interest Shortfall Amounts, unless otherwise specified in the applicable Indenture Supplement, and in addition thereto, will pay such further amount as will be sufficient to cover the costs and expenses of collection, including the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Indenture Trustee and Deutsche Bank (in any of its capacities), their agents and counsel and all other amounts due under Section 4.5.
 
If the Issuer fails to pay such amounts forthwith upon such demand, the Indenture Trustee may, in its own name and as trustee of an express trust, institute a judicial proceeding for the collection of the sums so due and unpaid, and may directly prosecute such proceeding to judgment or final decree, and the Indenture Trustee may enforce the same against the Issuer or any other obligor upon the Notes and collect the money adjudged or decreed to be payable in the manner provided by law and this Indenture.

Indenture Trustee May File Proofs of Claim.
 
In case of the pendency of any Insolvency Event or other similar proceeding or event relative to the Issuer or any other obligor upon the Notes or the property of the Issuer or of such other obligor, the Indenture Trustee (irrespective of whether the principal of the Notes will then be due and payable as therein expressed or by declaration or otherwise) will be entitled and empowered by intervention in such proceeding or otherwise,
 
(a)         to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of principal and interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Notes and to file such other papers or documents as may be necessary and advisable in order to have the claims of the Indenture Trustee (including any claim for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Indenture Trustee, its agents and counsel and all other amounts due under Section 4.5) and of the Noteholders allowed in such judicial proceeding, and
 
(b)         to collect and receive any funds or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same; and any receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator or other similar official in any such proceeding is hereby authorized by each Noteholder to make such payment to the Indenture Trustee and Deutsche Bank (in all its capacities), and in the event that the Indenture Trustee consents to the making of such payments directly to the Noteholders, to pay to the Indenture Trustee and Deutsche Bank (in all its capacities) any amount due to it for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Indenture Trustee and Deutsche Bank (in all its capacities), their agents and counsel, and any other amounts due the Indenture Trustee and Deutsche Bank (in all its capacities) under Section 4.5.
 
Nothing herein contained will be deemed to authorize the Indenture Trustee to authorize or consent to or accept or adopt on behalf of any Noteholder any plan of reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition affecting the Notes or the rights of any Noteholder thereof, or to authorize the Indenture Trustee to vote in respect of the claim of any Noteholder in any such proceeding.

Sale of Collateral Requires Consent of Series Required Noteholders.
 
The Indenture Trustee shall not sell Collateral or cause the Issuer to sell Collateral following any Event of Default, except with the written consent, or at the direction of, the Series Required Noteholders of each Series; provided, that the consent of 100% of the Noteholders of the Outstanding Notes of each Series and any applicable Derivative Counterparties shall be required for any sale that does not generate sufficient proceeds to pay the Note Balance of all such Notes plus all accrued and unpaid interest and other amounts owed in respect of such Notes and the Transaction Documents.  If such direction has been given by the Noteholders of the requisite percentage of all Outstanding Notes, the Indenture Trustee shall cause the Issuer to sell Collateral pursuant to Section 8.16, and shall provide notice of this to each Note Rating Agency of then Outstanding Notes.

Limitation on Suits.
 
No Noteholder will have any right to institute any proceeding, judicial or otherwise, with respect to this Indenture or any Note, or for the appointment of a receiver or trustee or similar official, or for any other remedy hereunder, unless:

(b)         the Noteholders of more than 25% of the Note Balance of the Outstanding Notes of each Series, measured by Voting Interests, have made written request to the Indenture Trustee to institute proceedings in respect of such Event of Default in the name of the Indenture Trustee hereunder;

Section 8.10.
Limited Recourse.
 
Notwithstanding any other terms of this Indenture, the Notes, any other Transaction Documents or otherwise, the obligations of the Issuer under the Notes, this Indenture and each other Transaction Document to which it is a party are limited recourse obligations of the Issuer, payable solely from the Trust Estate, and following realization of the Trust Estate and application of the proceeds thereof in accordance with the terms of this Indenture, none of the Noteholders, the Indenture Trustee or any of the other parties to the Transaction Documents shall be entitled to take any further steps to recover any sums due but still unpaid hereunder or thereunder, all claims in respect of which shall be extinguished and shall not thereafter revive.  Subject to the foregoing and to the terms of the applicable Indenture Supplement, each Noteholder will, however, have the absolute and unconditional right to receive payment of all amounts due with respect to the Notes pursuant and respect to the terms of the Indenture, which right shall not be impaired without the consent of each Noteholder and to initiate suit for the enforcement of any such payment, which right shall not be impaired without the consent of such Noteholder.  No recourse shall be had for the payment of any amount owing in respect of the Notes or this Indenture or for any action or inaction of the Issuer against any officer, director, employee, shareholder, stockholder or incorporator of the Issuer or any of their successors or assigns for any amounts payable under the Notes or this Indenture.  It is understood that the foregoing provisions of this Section 8.10 shall not (i) prevent recourse to the Trust Estate for the sums due or to become due under any security, instrument or agreement which is part of the Trust Estate or (ii) save as specifically provided therein, constitute a waiver, release or discharge of any indebtedness or obligation evidenced by the Notes or secured by this Indenture.  It is further understood that the foregoing provisions of this Section 8.10 shall not limit the right of any Person, to name the Issuer as a party defendant in any proceeding or in the exercise of any other remedy under the Notes or this Indenture, so long as no judgment in the nature of a deficiency judgment or seeking personal liability shall be asked for or (if obtained) enforced against any such Person or entity.
 
Section 8.11.
Restoration of Rights and Remedies.
 
If the Indenture Trustee or any Noteholder has instituted any proceeding to enforce any right or remedy under this Indenture and such proceeding has been discontinued or abandoned for any reason, then and in every such case the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders will, subject to any determination in such proceeding, be restored severally and respectively to their former positions hereunder, and thereafter all rights and remedies of the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders will continue as though no such proceeding had been instituted.
 
141

Section 8.12.
Rights and Remedies Cumulative.
 
No right or remedy herein conferred upon or reserved to the Indenture Trustee or to the Noteholders is intended to be exclusive of any other right or remedy, and every right and remedy will, to the extent permitted by law, be cumulative and in addition to every other right and remedy given hereunder or now or hereafter existing at law or in equity or otherwise.  The assertion or employment of any right or remedy hereunder, or otherwise, will not prevent the concurrent assertion or employment of any other appropriate right or remedy.
 
Section 8.13.
Delay or Omission Not Waiver.
 
No delay or omission of the Indenture Trustee or of any Noteholder to exercise any right or remedy accruing upon any Event of Default will impair any such right or remedy or constitute a waiver of any such Event of Default or an acquiescence therein.  Every right and remedy given by this Article or by law to the Indenture Trustee or to the Noteholders may be exercised from time to time, and as often as may be deemed expedient, by the Indenture Trustee or by the Noteholders, as the case may be.
 
Section 8.14.
Control by Noteholders.
 
Either 100% of the VFN Noteholders or the Majority Noteholders of all Outstanding Notes will have the right to direct the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the Indenture Trustee, or exercising any trust or power conferred on the Indenture Trustee with respect to such Notes; provided that:
 
(a)         the Indenture Trustee will have the right to decline to follow any such direction if the Indenture Trustee, being advised by counsel, determines that the action so directed may violate applicable law or would conflict with this Indenture or if the Indenture Trustee in good faith determines that the proceedings so directed would have a substantial likelihood of involving it in personal liability or be unjustly prejudicial to the Noteholders not taking part in such direction, unless the Indenture Trustee has received indemnity satisfactory to it from the Noteholders; and
 
(b)          the Indenture Trustee may take any other action permitted hereunder deemed proper by the Indenture Trustee which is not inconsistent with such direction.
 
Section 8.15.
Waiver of Past Defaults.
 
Together, the Majority Noteholders of all Outstanding Notes that are not Variable Funding Notes, the Series Required Noteholders for any Series of Variable Funding Notes Outstanding and the Administrative Agent may on behalf of the Noteholders of all such Notes waive any past default hereunder and its consequences, except a default not theretofore cured:
 
(a)          in the payment of the principal of or interest on any Note, or
 
142

(b)          in respect of a covenant or provision hereof which under Article XII cannot be modified or amended without the consent of the Noteholder of each Outstanding Note.
 
Upon any such waiver, such default will cease to exist, and any Event of Default arising therefrom will be deemed to have been cured, for every purpose of this Indenture; but no such waiver will extend to any subsequent or other default or impair any right consequent thereon.
 
Section 8.16.
Sale of Trust Estate.
 
(a)          The power to effect any Sale of any portion of the Trust Estate shall not be exhausted by any one or more Sales as to any portion of the Trust Estate remaining unsold, but shall continue unimpaired until the entire Trust Estate shall have been sold or all amounts payable on the Notes and under this Indenture with respect thereto shall have been paid.  The Indenture Trustee may from time to time postpone any public Sale by public announcement made at the time and place of such Sale.
 
(b)          Unless the Series Required Noteholders of all Outstanding Series have otherwise provided its written consent to the Indenture Trustee and the Indenture Trustee has provided prior notice of such Sale as soon as is reasonably practicable to each Derivative Counterparty, at any public Sale of all or any portion of the Trust Estate at which a minimum bid equal to or greater than all amounts due to the Indenture Trustee hereunder and the entire amount which would be payable to the Noteholders in full payment thereof in accordance with Section 8.6, on the Payment Date next succeeding the date of such sale, has not been received, the Indenture Trustee shall prevent such sale by bidding an amount at least $1.00 more than the highest other bid in order to preserve the Trust Estate.
 
(c)          In connection with a Sale of all or any portion of the Trust Estate:
 
(i)           any of the Noteholders may bid for and purchase the property offered for Sale, and upon compliance with the terms of sale may hold, retain and possess and dispose of such property, without further accountability;
 
(ii)          the Indenture Trustee may bid for and acquire the property offered for Sale in connection with any Sale thereof;
 
(iii)        the Indenture Trustee shall execute and deliver an appropriate instrument of conveyance transferring its interest in any portion of the Trust Estate in connection with a Sale thereof;
 
(iv)        the Indenture Trustee is hereby irrevocably appointed the agent and attorney-in-fact of the Issuer to transfer and convey its interest in any portion of the Trust Estate in connection with a Sale thereof, and to take all action necessary to effect such Sale; and
 
(v)         no purchaser or transferee at such a Sale shall be bound to ascertain the Indenture Trustee’s authority, inquire into the satisfaction of any conditions precedent or see to the application of any moneys.
 
143

(d)         Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Indenture, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Notes have become due and payable or have been declared due and payable and such declaration and its consequences have not been rescinded and annulled, any proceeds received by the Indenture Trustee with respect to a foreclosure, sale or other realization resulting from a transfer of the assets of the Trust Estate shall be allocated in accordance with Section 4.5(a)(2) hereof.  The amount, if any, so allocated to the Issuer shall be paid by the Indenture Trustee to or to the order of the Issuer free and clear of the Adverse Claim of this Indenture and the Noteholders shall have no claim or rights to the amount so allocated.
 
Section 8.17.
Undertaking for Costs.
 
All parties to this Indenture agree, and each Noteholder by its acceptance thereof will be deemed to have agreed, that any court may in its discretion require, in any suit for the enforcement of any right or remedy under this Indenture, or in any suit against the Indenture Trustee for any action taken or omitted by it as Indenture Trustee, the filing by any party litigant in such suit of an undertaking to pay the costs of such suit, and that such court may in its discretion assess reasonable costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, against any party litigant in such suit, having due regard to the merits and good faith of the claims or defenses made by such party litigant; but the provisions of this Section will not apply to any suit instituted by the Indenture Trustee, to any suit instituted by any Noteholder or group of Noteholders holding in the aggregate more than 25% of the Note Balance of the Outstanding Notes of each Series (measured by Voting Interests) to which the suit relates, or to any suit instituted by any Noteholders for the enforcement of the payment of the principal of or interest on any Note on or after the applicable Stated Maturity Date expressed in such Note.
 
Section 8.18.
Waiver of Stay or Extension Laws.
 
The Issuer covenants (to the extent that it may lawfully do so) that it will not at any time insist upon, or plead, or in any manner whatsoever claim or take the benefit or advantage of, any stay or extension law wherever enacted, now or at any time hereafter in force, which may affect the covenants or the performance of this Indenture; and the Issuer (to the extent that it may lawfully do so) hereby expressly waives all benefit or advantage of any such law, and covenants that it will not hinder, delay or impede the execution of any power herein granted to the Indenture Trustee, but will suffer and permit the execution of every such power as though no such law had been enacted.
 
Section 8.19.
Notice of Waivers.
 
Promptly after any waiver of an Event of Default  pursuant to Section 4.12, or any rescission or annulment of a declaration of acceleration pursuant to Section 8.2(c), or any waiver of past default pursuant to Section 8.15, the Issuer will notify all related Note Rating Agencies in writing.

(b)         Power and Authority.  The Issuer has and will continue to have the power and authority to execute and deliver this Indenture and the other Transaction Documents to which it is or will be a party, and to carry out their respective terms; the Issuer had and has had at all relevant times and now has full power, authority and legal right to acquire, own, hold and Grant a Security Interest in the Trust Estate and has duly authorized such Grant to the Indenture Trustee by all necessary action; and the execution, delivery and performance by the Issuer of this Indenture and each of the other Transaction Documents to which it is a party has been duly authorized by all necessary action of the Issuer.
 
(c)         Valid Transfers; Binding Obligations.  This Indenture creates a valid Grant of a Security Interest in the Receivables which has been validly perfected and is a first priority Security Interest under the UCC, and such other portion of the Collateral as to which a Security Interest may be granted under the UCC, which security interest is enforceable against creditors of and purchasers from the Issuer, subject to applicable law.  Each of the Transaction Documents to which the Issuer is a party constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of the Issuer enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or other similar laws affecting creditors’ rights generally or by general equity principles.
 
(d)        No Violation.  The execution and delivery by the Issuer of this Indenture and each other Transaction Document to which it is a party and the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Indenture and the other Transaction Documents and the fulfillment of the terms of this Indenture and the other Transaction Documents do not conflict with, result in any breach of any of the terms or provisions of, or constitute (with or without notice or lapse of time or both) a default under the Organizational Documents of the Issuer or any indenture, agreement or other material instrument to which the Issuer is a party or by which it is bound, or result in the creation or imposition of any Adverse Claim upon any of its properties pursuant to the terms of any such indenture, agreement or other instrument (other than this Indenture), or violate any law, order, judgment, decree, writ, injunction, award, determination, rule or regulation applicable to the Issuer of any court or of any federal or state regulatory body, administrative agency or other governmental instrumentality having jurisdiction over the Issuer or its properties, which breach, default, conflict, Adverse Claim or violation could reasonably be expected to have a material Adverse Effect.
 
145

(e)         No Proceedings.  There is no action, suit or proceeding before or by any court or governmental agency or body, domestic or foreign, now pending, or to the Issuer’s knowledge, threatened, against or affecting the Issuer:  (i) asserting the invalidity of this Indenture, the Notes or any of the other Transaction Documents to which the Issuer is a party, (ii) seeking to prevent the issuance of the Notes or the consummation of any of the transactions contemplated by this Indenture, or any of the other Transaction Documents, (iii) seeking any determination or ruling which could reasonably be expected to have a material Adverse Effect or could reasonably be expected to materially and adversely affect the condition (financial or otherwise), business or operations of the Issuer, or (iv) relating to the Issuer and which could reasonably be expected to adversely affect the United States federal income tax attributes of the Notes.

(b)         Notification and Defense.  Promptly after any Indemnified Party shall have been served with the summons or other first legal process or shall have received written notice of the threat of a claim in respect of which a claim for indemnity may be made against the Issuer under this Section 9.2, the Indemnified Party shall notify the Issuer and the Administrator in writing of the service of such summons, other legal process or written notice, giving information therein as to the nature and basis of the claim, but failure so to notify the Issuer shall not relieve the Issuer from any liability which it may have hereunder or otherwise, except to the extent that the Issuer is prejudiced by such failure so to notify the Issuer.  The Issuer will be entitled, at its own expense, to participate in the defense of any such claim or action and, to the extent that it may wish, to assume the defense thereof, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Indemnified Party, and, after notice from the Issuer to such Indemnified Party that the Issuer wishes to assume the defense of any such action, the Issuer will not be liable to such Indemnified Party under this Section 9.2 for any legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by such Indemnified Party in connection with the defense of any such action unless (i) the defendants in any such action include both the Indemnified Party and the Issuer, and the Indemnified Party (upon the advice of counsel) shall have reasonably concluded that there may be legal defenses available to it that are different from or additional to those available to the Issuer, or one or more Indemnified Parties, and which in the reasonable judgment of such counsel are sufficient to create a conflict of interest for the same counsel to represent both the Issuer and such Indemnified Party, (ii) the Issuer shall not have employed counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party to represent the Indemnified Party within a reasonable time after notice of commencement of the action, or (iii) the Issuer has authorized the employment of counsel for the Indemnified Party at the expense of the Issuer; then, in any such event, such Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ its own counsel in such action, and the reasonable fees and expenses of such counsel shall be borne by the Issuer; provided, however, that the Issuer shall not in connection with any such action or separate but substantially similar or related actions arising out of the same general allegations or circumstances, be liable for any fees and expenses of more than one firm of attorneys at any time for all Indemnified Parties.  Each Indemnified Party, as a condition of the indemnity agreement contained herein, shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate with the Issuer in the defense of any such action or claim.  The Issuer shall not, without the prior written consent of any Indemnified Party, effect any settlement of any pending or threatened proceeding in respect of which such Indemnified Party is or could have been a party and indemnity could have been sought hereunder by such Indemnified Party, unless such settlement includes an unconditional release of such Indemnified Party from all liability on claims that are the subject matter of such proceeding or threatened proceeding.
 
149

(c)         Expenses.  Indemnification under this Section shall include, without limitation, reasonable fees and expenses of counsel and expenses of litigation.  If the Issuer has made any indemnity payments pursuant to this Section and the recipient thereafter collects any of such amounts from others, the recipient shall promptly repay such amounts collected to the Issuer, without interest.
