Article II

Terms of the Loans
    Section 2.01.    Loan Facility. Upon a request by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.02, and on the terms and subject to the conditions hereinafter set forth, the Conduit Lenders,
-41-



ratably, in accordance with the aggregate of the Commitments of the Related Committed Lenders with respect to each such Conduit Lender, severally and not jointly, may, in their sole discretion, make Loans to the Borrower on a revolving basis, and if and to the extent any Conduit Lender does not make any such requested Loan or if any Group does not include a Conduit Lender, the Related Committed Lender(s) for such Conduit Lender or the Committed Lender for such Group, as the case may be, shall, ratably, in accordance with their respective Commitments, severally and not jointly, make a Loan to the Borrower on a revolving basis from time to time during the period from the Closing Date to the Termination Date. Under no circumstances shall any Lender be obligated to make any such Loan if, after giving effect to such Loan:
    (i)    the Aggregate Capital would exceed the Facility Limit at such time;
    (ii)    the sum of (A) the aggregate outstanding Capital of such Lender plus (B) the aggregate outstanding Capital of each other Lender in its Group would exceed the Group Commitment of such Lender’s Group
    (iii)    if such Lender is a Committed Lender, the aggregate outstanding Capital of such Committed Lender would exceed its Commitment; or
    (iv)    the Aggregate Capital would exceed the Borrowing Base at such time.
    Section 2.02.    Making Loans; Repayment of Loans. (a) Each Loan hereunder shall be made upon the written request from the Borrower to the Administrative Agent in the form of a Loan Request attached hereto as Exhibit A. Each such request for a Loan shall be made no later than 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) on a Business Day (it being understood that any such request made after such time shall be deemed to have been made on the following Business Day) and shall specify (i) the amount of the Loan(s) requested (which shall not be less than $1,000,000 and shall be an integral multiple of $100,000), (ii) the allocation of such amount among the Groups (which shall be ratable based on the Group Commitments), (iii) the account to which the proceeds of such Loan shall be distributed and (iv) the date such requested Loan is to be made (which shall be a Business Day and (x) may be the Business Day on which the Loan Request was submitted if the aggregate amount of the Loans(s) requested is $250,000,000 or less or (y) shall be the date falling two Business Days before the date such requested Loan is to be made if the aggregate amount of the Loans(s) requested exceeds $250,000,000).
    (b)    The Administrative Agent shall, promptly after receipt by it of a Loan Request pursuant to Section 2.02(a), notify each Group Agent of its receipt of such Loan Request specifying the information provided by the Borrower and the apportionment among the Groups (which shall be ratable based on the Group Commitments) of the requested Loan. On the date of each Loan specified in the applicable Loan Request, the Lenders shall, upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions set forth in Article VI and pursuant to the other conditions set forth in this Article II, make available to the Borrower in same day funds an aggregate amount equal to the amount of such Loans requested, at the account set forth in the related Loan Request.

-42-



    (c)    Each Committed Lender’s obligation shall be several, such that the failure of any Committed Lender to make available to the Borrower any funds in connection with any Loan shall not relieve any other Committed Lender of its obligation, if any, hereunder to make funds available on the date such Loans are requested (it being understood, that no Committed Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Committed Lender to make funds available to the Borrower in connection with any Loan hereunder).
    (d)    The Borrower shall repay in full the outstanding Capital of each Lender on the Maturity Date. Prior thereto, the Borrower shall, on each Settlement Date, make a prepayment of the outstanding Capital of the Lenders to the extent required under Section 4.01 and otherwise in accordance therewith.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrower, in its discretion, shall have the right to make a prepayment, in whole or in part, of the outstanding Capital of the Lenders on any Business Day upon written notice thereof to the Administrative Agent in the form of a Reduction Notice attached hereto as Exhibit D; provided that, each such notice shall be made no later than 12:00 p.m. (New York City time) (x) on the Business Day of the requested prepayment or (y) if any such prepayment is in an aggregate amount greater than $125,000,000, on the date falling two Business Days before the date of the requested prepayment (it being understood that any such request made after such time shall be deemed to have been made on the following Business Day); and provided, further, that (i) each such prepayment shall be in a minimum aggregate amount of $1,000,000 and shall be an integral multiple of $100,000, (ii) any accrued Interest and Fees in respect of such prepaid Capital shall be paid on the immediately following Settlement Date, and (iii) it shall be condition precedent to any such reduction in Capital that after giving effect to the reduction in the outstanding Capital proposed in such Reduction Notice, the outstanding Capital at such time would not be less than an amount equal to the applicable Minimum Funding Threshold; provided, further, however, that at any time on or after January 1, 2021, the Borrower may elect to be exempt from the Minimum Funding Threshold requirement set forth in this clause (iii) for a single period of no more than thirty (30) consecutive days during any calendar year by providing five (5) Business Days’ prior written notice to the Administrative Agent.
    (e)    The Borrower may, at any time upon at least thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to the Administrative Agent (any such notice a “Facility Limit Reduction Notice”), terminate the Facility Limit in whole or ratably reduce the Facility Limit in part. Each partial reduction in the Facility Limit shall be in a minimum aggregate amount of $5,000,000 and shall be an integral multiple of $1,000,000, and no such partial reduction shall reduce the Facility Limit to an amount less than $175,000,000. In connection with any partial reduction in the Facility Limit, the Commitment of each Committed Lender shall be ratably reduced.
    (f)    In connection with any reduction of the Commitments, the Borrower shall remit to the Administrative Agent (i) instructions regarding such reduction and (ii) for payment to the Lenders, cash in an amount sufficient to pay (A) the Capital of the Lenders in each Group in excess of the Group Commitment of such Group and (B) all other outstanding Borrower Obligations with respect to such reduction (determined based on the ratio of the reduction of the Commitments being effected to the amount of the Commitments prior to such reduction or, if the Administrative Agent reasonably determines that any portion of the outstanding Borrower Obligations is allocable solely to that portion of the Commitments being reduced or has arisen solely as a result of such reduction, all of such portion) including, without duplication, any
-43-



associated Breakage Fees. Upon receipt of any such amounts, the Administrative Agent shall apply such amounts first to the reduction of the outstanding Capital, and second to the payment of the remaining outstanding Borrower Obligations with respect to such reduction, including any Breakage Fees, by paying such amounts to the Lenders.
    Section 2.03.    Interest and Fees. (a) On each Settlement Date, the Borrower shall, in accordance with the terms and priorities for payment set forth in Section 4.01, pay to the Administrative Agent (for the account of the Administrative Agent and each Group), each Lender and the Structuring Agent certain fees (collectively, the “Fees”) in the amounts set forth in the fee letter agreements from time to time entered into, among the Borrower, the members of the applicable Group (or their Group Agent on their behalf) and/or the Administrative Agent and/or the Structuring Agent (each such fee letter agreement, as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, collectively being referred to herein as the “Fee Letter”). Commitment Fees (as defined in the Fee Letter) shall cease to accrue on the unfunded portion of the Commitment of any Defaulting Lender as provided in Section 2.06.
    (b)    The Capital of each Lender shall accrue interest on each day when such Capital remains outstanding at the then applicable Interest Rate. The Borrower shall pay all Interest (including, for the avoidance of doubt, all Interest accrued on Term SOFR Tranches during an Interest Period regardless of whether the applicable Tranche Period has ended), Fees and Breakage Fees accrued during each Interest Period on each Settlement Date in accordance with the terms and priorities for payment set forth in Section 4.01.
    (c)    For the avoidance of doubt, the Borrower’s obligation to pay all Fees and Interest hereunder when due shall not be contingent upon the receipt or availability of Collections.    
    Section 2.04.    Records of Loans. Each Group Agent shall record in its records, the date and amount of each Loan made by the Lenders in its Group, the interest rate with respect thereto, the Interest accrued thereon and each repayment and payment thereof. Subject to Section 14.03(c), such records shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error. The failure to so record any such information or any error in so recording any such information shall not, however, limit or otherwise affect the obligations of the Borrower hereunder or under the other Transaction Documents to repay the Capital of each Lender, together with all Interest accruing thereon and all other Borrower Obligations.
    Section 2.05.    Selection of Interest Rates . (a) Subject to the following sentence, each Lender’s Capital (including all portions thereof) shall accrue Interest initially at Daily 1M SOFR plus the SOFR Adjustment. Thereafter, so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Borrower may from time to time elect to change or continue the type of SOFR Rate borne by the Lenders’ Capital or, subject to the minimum amount requirement set forth in Section 2.02, a portion thereof by notice to the Administrative Agent not later than 12:00 p.m. (New York City time), one (1) Business Day prior to the expiration of any Interest Period, as applicable; provided, that there shall not be more than three (3) Term SOFR
-44-



Tranches outstanding hereunder at any one time; provided, further, that for the avoidance of doubt, any change from Daily 1M SOFR to the Term SOFR Rate applicable to any Capital (or portion thereof) shall not be effective until the first day of the calendar month occurring after the date of such request. Any such notices requesting the continuation or conversion of any Capital (or any portion thereof) to the Administrative Agent may be given by telephone, telecopy, or other telecommunication device acceptable to the Administrative Agent (which notice shall be irrevocable once given and, if by telephone, shall be promptly confirmed in writing in a manner acceptable to the Administrative Agent).
    (b)    If, by the time required in Section 2.05(a), the Borrower fails to select a SOFR Rate for any Capital (or portion thereof), such Capital (or portion thereof) shall automatically accrue Interest at Daily 1M SOFR plus the SOFR Adjustment for the next occurring Interest Period.
    Section 2.06.    Defaulting Lenders. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if any Committed Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then the following provisions shall apply for so long as such Committed Lender is a Defaulting Lender:
    (a)    Commitment Fees (as defined in the Fee Letter) shall cease to accrue on the unfunded portion of the Commitment of such Defaulting Lender.
    (b)    The Commitment and Capital of such Defaulting Lender shall not be included in determining whether the Majority Group Agents have taken or may take any action hereunder (including any consent to any amendment, waiver or other modification pursuant to Section 14.01); provided, that, except as otherwise provided in Section 14.01, this clause (b) shall not apply to the vote of a Defaulting Lender in the case of an amendment, waiver or other modification requiring the consent of such Committed Lender or each Committed Lender directly affected thereby (if such Lender is directly affected thereby).
    (c)    In the event that the Administrative Agent, the Borrower and the Servicer each agrees in writing that a Defaulting Lender has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Lender to be a Defaulting Lender, then on such date such Committed Lender (or a member of such Committed Lender’s Group) shall purchase at par such of the Loans of the other Lenders as the Administrative Agent shall determine may be necessary in order for such Committed Lender’s Group to hold such Loans in accordance with its Pro Rata Percentage; provided, that no adjustments shall be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while such Committed Lender was a Defaulting Lender, and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Lender that is not a Defaulting Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender having been a Defaulting Lender.

Article III

Security Interest
    Section 3.01.    Security Interest. (a) As security for the performance by the Borrower of all the terms, covenants and agreements on the part of the Borrower to be performed under this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, including the punctual payment when due of the Aggregate Capital and all Interest in respect of the Loans and all other Borrower Obligations, the Borrower hereby grants to the Administrative Agent for its benefit and the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties, a continuing security interest in and lien upon, all of the Borrower’s right, title and interest in, to and under all of the following, whether now or hereafter owned, existing or arising and wherever located (collectively, the “Collateral”): (i) all Pool Receivables, (ii) all Related Security with respect to such Pool Receivables, (iii) all Collections with respect to such Pool Receivables, (iv) the Lock-Boxes and Collection Accounts and all amounts on deposit therein, and all certificates and instruments, if any, from time to time evidencing such Lock-Boxes and Collection Accounts and amounts on deposit therein, (v) all rights (but none of the obligations) of the Borrower under the Receivables Purchase Agreement, (vi) all other personal and fixture property or assets of the Borrower of every kind and nature including, without limitation, all goods (including inventory, equipment and any accessions thereto), instruments (including promissory notes), documents, accounts, chattel paper (whether tangible or electronic), deposit accounts, securities accounts, securities entitlements, letter-of-credit rights, commercial tort claims, securities and all other investment property, supporting obligations, money, any other contract rights or rights to the payment of money, insurance claims and proceeds, and all general intangibles (including all payment intangibles) (each as defined in the UCC), and (vii) all proceeds of, and all amounts received or receivable under any or all of, the foregoing.
    (b)    The Administrative Agent (for the benefit of the Secured Parties) shall have, with respect to all the Collateral, and in addition to all the other rights and remedies available to the Administrative Agent (for the benefit of the Secured Parties), all the rights and remedies of a secured party under any applicable UCC. The Borrower hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to file financing statements describing the collateral covered thereby as “all of the debtor’s personal property or assets” or words to that effect.
    (c)    Immediately upon the occurrence of the Final Payout Date, the Collateral shall be automatically released from the lien created hereby, and this Agreement and all obligations (other than those expressly stated to survive such termination) of the Administrative Agent, the Lenders and the other Credit Parties hereunder shall terminate, all without delivery of any instrument or performance of any act by any party, and all rights to the Collateral shall revert to the Borrower; provided, however, that promptly following written request therefor by the Borrower delivered to the Administrative Agent following any such termination, and at the sole expense of the Borrower, the Administrative Agent shall execute and deliver to the Borrower UCC-3 termination statements and such other documents as the Borrower shall reasonably request to evidence such termination.
-46-



Article IV

Settlement Procedures and Payment Provisions
    Section 4.01.    Settlement Procedures. (a) The Servicer shall set aside and hold in trust in the Collection Accounts for the benefit of the Secured Parties (or, if so requested by the Administrative Agent, segregate in a separate account designated by the Administrative Agent in the name of the Borrower), for application in accordance with the priority of payments set forth below, all Collections on Pool Receivables (other than Foreign Currency Receivables) that are received by the Servicer or the Borrower or received in any Lock-Box or Collection Account; provided, however, that so long as each of the conditions precedent set forth in Section 6.04 are satisfied on any date, the Servicer may release to the Borrower from such Collections the amount (if any) necessary to pay (x) the purchase price for Receivables purchased by the Borrower on such date in accordance with the terms of the Receivables Purchase Agreement or (y) amounts owing by the Borrower to any Originator under any Subordinated Notes (each such release of Collections, a “Reinvestment”).

    (ii)    second, to each Lender and other Credit Party (ratably, based on the amount then due and owing), all accrued and unpaid Interest, Fees and Breakage Fees due to such Lender and other Credit Party for the immediately preceding Interest Period (including any additional amounts or indemnified amounts payable under Sections 5.03 and 13.01 in respect of such payments), plus, if applicable, the amount of any such Interest, Fees and Breakage Fees (including any additional amounts or indemnified amounts payable under Sections 5.03 and 13.01 in respect of such payments) payable for any prior Interest Period to the extent such amount has not been distributed to such Lender or Credit Party;

    (y)    on and after the occurrence of the Termination Date, to each Lender (ratably, based on the aggregate outstanding Capital of each Lender at such time) for the payment in full of the aggregate outstanding Capital of such Lender at such time; or
-47-



    (z)    prior to the occurrence of the Termination Date, at the election of the Borrower and in accordance with Section 2.02(d), to the payment of all or any portion of the outstanding Capital of the Lenders at such time (ratably, based on the aggregate outstanding Capital of each Lender at such time);
    (iv)    fourth, to the Credit Parties, the Affected Persons and the Borrower Indemnified Parties (ratably, based on the amount due and owing at such time), for the payment of all other Borrower Obligations then due and owing by the Borrower to the Credit Parties, the Affected Persons and the Borrower Indemnified Parties; and
    (v)    fifth, the balance, if any, to be paid to the Borrower for its own account.
    (b)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Section 4.01, the Administrative Agent shall have no obligation to distribute or pay any amount under this Section 4.01 except to the extent actually received by the Administrative Agent. All payments or distributions to be made by the Servicer, the Borrower and any other Person to the Lenders (or their respective related Affected Persons and the Borrower Indemnified Parties) hereunder shall be paid or distributed to the Administrative Agent’s Account.  The Administrative Agent, upon its receipt in the Administrative Agent’s Account of any such payments or distributions, shall distribute such amounts to the applicable Group Agent; provided that if the Administrative Agent shall have received insufficient funds to pay all of the above amounts in full on any such date, the Administrative Agent shall pay such amounts to the applicable Group Agents in accordance with the priority of payments set forth above, and with respect to any such category above for which there are insufficient funds to pay all amounts owing on such date, ratably (based on the amounts in such categories owing to each such Group) among all such Groups entitled to payment thereof. Each Group Agent, upon its receipt in the applicable Group Agent’s Account of any such payments or distributions, shall distribute such amounts to the applicable Lenders, Affected Persons and the Borrower Indemnified Parties within its Group ratably; provided that if such Group Agent shall have received insufficient funds to pay all of the above amounts in full on any such date, such Group Agent shall pay such amounts to the applicable Lenders, Affected Persons and the Borrower Indemnified Parties within its Group in accordance with the priority of payments set forth above, and with respect to any such category above for which there are insufficient funds to pay all amounts owing on such date, ratably (based on the amounts in such categories owing to each such Person in such Group) among all such Persons in such Group entitled to payment thereof. Each Lender and Group Agent hereby covenants and agrees to provide timely and accurate responses to each of the Administrative Agent’s requests for information necessary for the Administrative Agent to make the allocations to the Lenders and the Group Agents required to be made by the Administrative Agent hereunder, including the applicable account of each Lender or Group Agent for which amounts should be distributed.
    (c)    If and to the extent the Administrative Agent, any Credit Party, any Affected Person or any Borrower Indemnified Party shall be required for any reason to pay over to any Person (including any Obligor or any trustee, receiver, custodian or similar official in an Insolvency Proceeding) any amount received on its behalf hereunder, such amount shall be deemed not to have been so received by such Person but rather to have been retained by the Borrower and, accordingly, the Administrative Agent, such Credit Party, such Affected Person or such
-48-



Borrower Indemnified Party, as the case may be, shall have a claim against the Borrower for such amount.
    (d)    For the purposes of this Section 4.01:
    (i)    if on any day the Outstanding Balance of any Pool Receivable is reduced or adjusted as a result of any defective, rejected, returned, repossessed or foreclosed goods or services, or any revision, cancellation, allowance, rebate, credit memo, discount or other adjustment made by the Borrower, any Originator, the Servicer or any Affiliate of the Servicer, or any setoff, counterclaim or resolution of a dispute between or among the Borrower or any Affiliate of the Borrower, an Originator or any Affiliate of an Originator, or the Servicer or any Affiliate of the Servicer, and an Obligor, the Borrower shall be deemed to have received on such day a Collection of such Pool Receivable in the amount of such reduction or adjustment and shall pay any and all such amounts in respect thereof to a Collection Account (or as otherwise directed by the Administrative Agent at such time) promptly (but no later than two (2) Business Days) for the benefit of the Credit Parties for application pursuant to Section 4.01(a);
    (ii)    if on any day any of the representations or warranties in Section 7.01 is not true with respect to any Pool Receivable, the Borrower shall be deemed to have received on such day a Collection of such Pool Receivable in full and shall pay the amount of such deemed Collection to a Collection Account (or as otherwise directed by the Administrative Agent at such time) promptly (but no later than two (2) Business Days) for the benefit of the Credit Parties for application pursuant to Section 4.01(a) (Collections deemed to have been received pursuant to Section 4.01(d) are hereinafter sometimes referred to as “Deemed Collections”); and
    (iii)    except as provided in clauses (i) or (ii) above or otherwise required by Applicable Law or the relevant Contract, all Collections received from an Obligor of any Receivable shall be applied to the Receivables of such Obligor in the order of the age of such Receivables, starting with the oldest such Receivable, unless such Obligor designates in writing its payment for application to specific Receivables.
    Section 4.02.    Payments and Computations, Etc. (a) All amounts to be paid by the Borrower or the Servicer to the Administrative Agent, any Credit Party, any Affected Person or any Borrower Indemnified Party hereunder shall be paid no later than 12:00 Noon (New York City time) on the day when due in same day funds to the Administrative Agent’s Account.
    (b)    Each of the Borrower and the Servicer shall, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, pay interest on any amount for each day not paid or deposited by it when due hereunder, at an interest rate per annum equal to 2.00% per annum above the Base Rate, payable on demand.
-49-



    (c)    All computations of interest under subsection (b) above and all computations of Interest, Fees and other amounts hereunder shall be made on the basis of a year of 360 days (or, in the case of amounts determined by reference to the Base Rate, 365 or 366 days, as applicable) for the actual number of days (including the first but excluding the last day) elapsed. Whenever any payment or deposit to be made hereunder shall be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment or deposit shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension of time shall be included in the computation of such payment or deposit.
Article V

Increased Costs; Funding Losses; Taxes; and Illegality
Section 5.01.    Increased Costs.
    (a)    Increased Costs Generally. If any Change in Law shall:
    (i)    impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, liquidity, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended or participated in by, any Affected Person (except any such reserve requirements reflected in the Term SOFR Rate or Daily 1M SOFR);
    (ii)    subject any Affected Person to any Taxes (other than Indemnified Taxes, Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes, and Connection Income Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto; or
    (iii)    impose on any Affected Person any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) (A) affecting the Collateral, this Agreement, any other Transaction Document, any Program Support Agreement, any Loan or any participation therein or (B) affecting its obligations or rights to make Loans;

-50-



    (b)    Capital and Liquidity Requirements. If any Affected Person determines that any Change in Law affecting such Affected Person or any lending office of such Affected Person or such Affected Person’s holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements, has or would have the effect of (x) increasing the amount of capital required to be maintained by such Affected Person or Affected Person’s holding company, if any, or increasing the amount of high quality liquid assets such Affected Person or Affected Person’s holding company, if any, is required to maintain as a result of any funding commitment made by such Affected Person under any Transaction Document, (y) reducing the rate of return on such Affected Person’s capital or on the capital of such Affected Person’s holding company, if any, or (z) causing an internal capital or liquidity charge or other imputed cost to be assessed upon such Affected Person or Affected Person’s holding company, if any, in each case, as a consequence of (A) this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, (B) the commitments of such Affected Person hereunder or any related Program Support Agreement, (C) the Loans made by such Affected Person, or (D) any Capital, to a level below that which such Affected Person or such Affected Person’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Affected Person’s policies and the policies of such Affected Person’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity), then from time to time, upon request of such Affected Person (or its Group Agent), the Borrower will pay to such Affected Person such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Affected Person or such Affected Person’s holding company for any such increase, reduction or charge.
    (c)    Adoption of Changes in Law. The Borrower acknowledges that any Affected Person may institute measures in anticipation of a Change in Law (including, without limitation, the imposition of internal charges on such Affected Person’s interests or obligations under any Transaction Document), and may commence allocating charges to or seeking compensation from the Borrower under this Section 5.01 in connection with such measures, in advance of the effective date of such Change in Law, and the Borrower agrees to pay such charges or compensation to such Affected Person, following demand therefor in accordance with the terms of this Section 5.01, without regard to whether such effective date has occurred.
    (d)    Certificates for Reimbursement. A certificate of an Affected Person (or its Group Agent on its behalf) setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Affected Person or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in clause (a), (b) or (c) of this Section and delivered to the Borrower, shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower shall, subject to the priorities of payment set forth in Section 4.01, pay such Affected Person the amount shown as due on any such certificate on the later of (i) the first Settlement Date occurring after the Borrower’s receipt of such certificate and (ii) ten (10) days after the Borrower’s receipt of such certificate.
    (e)    Delay in Requests. Failure or delay on the part of any Affected Person to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Affected Person’s right to demand such compensation provided that the Borrower shall not be required to compensate an Affected Person pursuant to this Section 5.01 for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 180 days prior to the date that such Affected Person notifies the Borrower of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Affected Person’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that, if the Change
-51-



in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 180-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.
    Section 5.02.    Funding Losses. (a) The Borrower will pay each Lender all Breakage Fees as and when due and owing.
    (b)    A certificate of a Lender (or its Group Agent on its behalf) setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender, as specified in clause (a) above and delivered to the Borrower, shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower shall, subject to the priorities of payment set forth in Section 4.01, pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate on the later of (i) the first Settlement Date occurring after the Borrower’s receipt of such certificate and (ii) ten (10) days after the Borrower’s receipt of such certificate.
    Section 5.03.    Taxes.
    (a)    Payments Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation under any Transaction Document shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by Applicable Law. If any Applicable Law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable withholding agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by such withholding agent, then the applicable withholding agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law, and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 5.03), the applicable Affected Person or Borrower Indemnified Party receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.
    (b)    Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrower. The Borrower shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law, or, at the option of the Administrative Agent, timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes.
    (c)    Indemnification by the Borrower. The Borrower shall indemnify each Affected Person, within ten days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 5.03) payable or paid by such Affected Person or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Affected Person and any penalties, interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority; provided that the Borrower shall not be required to compensate any Affected Person pursuant to this Section 5.03 for any Indemnified Taxes unless such Affected Person requests compensation from the Borrower not later than 180 days after the earlier of (i) the date on which the relevant Governmental Authority makes written demand upon such Affected Person for payment of such Indemnified Taxes, and (ii) the date on which such Affected Person has made payment of such Indemnified Taxes. A certificate that states the amount of such payment or liability shall be delivered to the Borrower by an Affected Person (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) together with all backup information and documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower,
-52-



or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of an Affected Person and shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
    (d)    Indemnification by the Lenders. Each Lender (other than the Conduit Lenders) shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within ten days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender, its Related Conduit Lender or any of their respective Affiliates that are Affected Persons (but only to the extent that the Borrower and its Affiliates have not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting any obligation of the Borrower, the Servicer or their Affiliates to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to the failure of such Lender, its Related Conduit Lender or any of their respective Affiliates that are Affected Persons to comply with Section 14.03(f) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register and (iii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender, its Related Conduit Lender or any of their respective Affiliates that are Affected Persons, in each case, that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent in connection with any Transaction Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender (or its Group Agent) by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender (other than the Conduit Lenders) hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender, or any of their respective Affiliates that are Affected Persons under any Transaction Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to such Lender, its Related Conduit Lender or any of their respective Affiliates that are Affected Persons from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this clause (d).
    (e)    Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by the Borrower to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 5.03, the Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
    (f)    Status of Affected Persons. (i) Any Affected Person that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Transaction Document shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, any Affected Person, if reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by Applicable Law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Affected Person is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Sections 5.03(f)(ii)(A), 5.03(f)(ii)(B) and 5.03(g)) shall not be required if, in the Affected Person’s reasonable judgment, such completion, execution or submission would subject such Affected Person to any material unreimbursed cost
-53-



or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Affected Person.
    (ii)    Without limiting the generality of the foregoing:
    (A)    any Affected Person that is a “United States Person” within the meaning of Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code, shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent on or about the date on which such Affected Person becomes a party hereto (and from time to time upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), executed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 certifying that such Affected Person is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding Tax;
    (B)    any Affected Person that is not a “United States Person” within the meaning of Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code (a “Foreign Affected Person”) shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent) on or about the date on which such Foreign Affected Person becomes an Affected Person with respect to this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:
    (1)    in the case of such a Foreign Affected Person claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party, (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Transaction Document, executed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN-E (or successor form) establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. Federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Transaction Document, Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or Internal Revenue Form W-8BEN-E (or successor form) establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. Federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;

    (4)    to the extent such Foreign Affected Person is not the beneficial owner, executed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8IMY, accompanied by Internal Revenue Service Form W-8ECI, Internal Revenue Service Form
-54-



W-8BEN or Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN-E (or successor form), a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate, Internal Revenue Service Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that, if such Foreign Affected Person is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Affected Person are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Affected Person may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner; and
    (C)    any Foreign Affected Person, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient), on or about the date on which such Foreign Affected Person becomes a party hereto (and from time to time upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, executed copies of any other form prescribed by Applicable Law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by Applicable Law to permit the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made.
    (g)    Documentation Required by FATCA. If a payment made to an Affected Person under any Transaction Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Affected Person were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Affected Person shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by Applicable Law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by Applicable Law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Borrower and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Affected Person has complied with such Affected Person’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this clause (g), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.
    (h)    Survival. Each party’s obligations under this Section 5.03 shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Administrative Agent or any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Credit Party or any other Affected Person, the termination of the Commitments and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all the Borrower Obligations and the Servicer’s obligations hereunder.
-55-



    (i)    Updates. Each Affected Person agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered pursuant to this Section 5.03 expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.
    (j)    Intended Tax Treatment. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Transaction Document, all parties to this Agreement covenant and agree to treat each Loan under this Agreement as debt (and all Interest as interest) for all federal, state, local and franchise tax purposes and agree not to take any position on any tax return inconsistent with the foregoing.
    (k)    Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 5.03 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 5.03), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 5.03 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (k) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (k), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (k) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This paragraph shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.
    Section 5.04.    Inability to Determine SOFR Rate; Change in Legality. (a) If any Group Agent shall have determined (which determination shall be conclusive and binding upon the parties hereto absent manifest error) before the first day of any Interest Period (with respect to the SOFR Rate determined by reference to the Term SOFR Rate) or on any day (with respect to the SOFR Rate determined by reference to Daily 1M SOFR), either that: (i) the SOFR Rate cannot be determined because it is not available, (ii) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the SOFR Rate for such Interest Period or day, as applicable, or (iii) the SOFR Rate determined pursuant hereto does not accurately reflect the cost to the applicable Affected Person (as conclusively determined by such Group Agent) of maintaining any Portion of Capital during such Interest Period or day, as applicable, such Group Agent shall promptly give telephonic notice of such determination, confirmed in writing, to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower before the first day of any Interest Period (with respect to the SOFR Rate determined by reference to the Term SOFR Rate) or on such day (with respect to the SOFR Rate determined by reference to Daily 1M SOFR). Upon delivery of such notice: (i) no Portion of Capital shall be funded thereafter at the SOFR Rate unless and until such Group Agent shall have given notice to Administrative Agent and the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such
-56-



determination no longer exist and (ii) with respect to any outstanding Portion of Capital then funded at the SOFR Rate, the Interest Rate with respect to such Portion of Capital shall automatically be converted to the Base Rate on the last day of the then-current Interest Period (with respect to the SOFR Rate determined by reference to the Term SOFR Rate) or immediately (with respect to the SOFR Rate determined by reference to Daily 1M SOFR).
    (b)    If at any time any Group Agent shall have been notified by any Affected Person that such Affected Person has determined (which determination shall be final and conclusive absent manifest error) that the funding or maintenance of any Portion of Capital at or by reference to the SOFR Rate has been made impracticable or unlawful by compliance by such Affected Person in good faith with any Applicable Law or any interpretation or application thereof by any Governmental Authority or with any request or directive of any such Governmental Authority (whether or not having the force of law), such Group Agent shall notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent thereof. Upon receipt of such notice, until the applicable Group Agent notifies the Borrower and the Administrative Agent that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer apply, (i) no Portion of Capital shall be funded thereafter at the SOFR Rate, and shall instead be funded at the Base Rate, unless and until such Group Agent shall have given notice to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist and (ii) with respect to any outstanding Portion of Capital then funded at the SOFR Rate, the Interest Rate with respect to such Portion of Capital shall automatically and immediately be converted to the Base Rate.
    (c)    (i) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Transaction Document (and any Hedging Agreement shall be deemed not to be a “Transaction Document” for purposes of this Section), if a Benchmark Transition Event and its related Benchmark Replacement Date have occurred prior to the Reference Time in respect of any setting of the then-current Benchmark, then the Benchmark Replacement will replace such Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Transaction Document in respect of any Benchmark setting at or after 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the fifth (5th) Business Day after the date notice of such Benchmark Replacement is provided to the Borrower and the Group Agents without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Transaction Document so long as the Administrative Agent has not received, by such time, written notice of objection to such Benchmark Replacement from Group Agents comprising the Majority Group Agents.
    (ii)    In connection with the implementation and administration of a Benchmark Replacement, the Administrative Agent will have the right to make Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Transaction Document, any amendments implementing such Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement or any other Transaction Document; provided, that any such amendment implementing such Conforming Changes that results in any incremental material cost or expense for the Borrower will not become effective without the consent of the Borrower.
    (iii)    The Administrative Agent will promptly notify the Borrower and the Group Agents of (A) any occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event and its related Benchmark Replacement Date, (B) the implementation of any Benchmark Replacement, (C) the effectiveness of any
-57-



Conforming Changes, (D) the removal or reinstatement of any tenor of a Benchmark pursuant to paragraph (iv) below and (E) the commencement of any Benchmark Unavailability Period. Any determination, decision or election that may be made by the Administrative Agent or, if applicable, any Group Agent (or group of Group Agents) pursuant to this Section, including any determination with respect to a tenor, rate or adjustment or of the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event, circumstance or date and any decision to take or refrain from taking any action or any selection, will be conclusive and binding absent manifest error and may be made in its or their sole discretion and without consent from any other party to this Agreement or any other Transaction Document except, in each case, as expressly required pursuant to this Section.
    (iv)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Transaction Document, at any time (including in connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement), (A) if the then-current Benchmark is a term rate and either (I) any tenor for such Benchmark is not displayed on a screen or other information service that publishes such rate from time to time as selected by the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion or (II) the regulatory supervisor for the administrator of such Benchmark has provided a public statement or publication of information announcing that any tenor for such Benchmark is or will be no longer representative, then the Administrative Agent may modify the definition of “Tranche Period” or “Interest Period” (or any similar or analogous definition) for any Benchmark settings at or after such time to remove such unavailable or non-representative tenor and (B) if a tenor that was removed pursuant to clause (A) above either (I) is subsequently displayed on a screen or information service for a Benchmark (including a Benchmark Replacement) or (II) is not, or is no longer, subject to an announcement that it is or will no longer be representative for a Benchmark (including a Benchmark Replacement), then the Administrative Agent may modify the definition of “Tranche Period” or “Interest Period” (or any similar or analogous definition) for all Benchmark settings at or after such time to reinstate such previously removed tenor.
    (v)    Upon the Borrower’s receipt of notice of the commencement of a Benchmark Unavailability Period, the Borrower may revoke any request for a Loan, or a conversion to or continuation of Capital, accruing Interest at the SOFR Rate to be made, converted or continued during any Benchmark Unavailability Period and, failing that, the Borrower will be deemed to have converted any such request into a request for a Loan, or a conversion of Capital to Capital, accruing Interest at the Base Rate, and, for the avoidance of doubt, all outstanding Capital accruing Interest at the SOFR Rate shall automatically be converted to Capital accruing Interest at the Base Rate. During any Benchmark Unavailability Period or at any time that a tenor for the then-current Benchmark is not an Available Tenor, the component of the Base Rate based upon the then-current Benchmark or such tenor for such Benchmark, as applicable, will not be used in any determination of the Base Rate.

(a) If any Affected Person requests compensation under Section 5.01, or the Borrower is required to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Affected Person or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Affected Person pursuant to Section 5.03, then such Affected Person (at the request of the Borrower) shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or Affiliates, if, in the judgment of such Affected Person, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 5.01 or 5.03, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) would not subject such Affected Person to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Affected Person. The Borrower hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Affected Person in connection with any such designation or assignment.
    (b)    If (i) any Affected Person requests compensation under Section 5.01, (ii) the Borrower is required to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Affected Person or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Affected Person pursuant to Section 5.03 or (iii) any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then the Borrower may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 14.03), all its interests, rights (other than its existing rights to payments pursuant to Section 5.01 or 5.03) and obligations under the Transaction Documents to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which, in the case of a Lender, shall be an Eligible Assignee); provided that (i) the Borrower shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld or delayed, (ii) such Affected Person, if a Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder, from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Borrower (in the case of all other amounts) and (iii) in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 5.01 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 5.03, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments. A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver by such Lender or an Affected Person or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Borrower to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.
    Section 5.06.    Certain Rules Relating to the Payment of Additional Amounts. (a)      If any Affected Person requests compensation under Section 5.01, or if the Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Affected Person or to any Governmental Authority for the account of any Affected Person pursuant to Section 5.03, then such Affected Person shall (at the request of the Borrower) use commercially reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking the related Loans hereunder or to assign and delegate (or cause to be assigned and delegated) such Affected Person's rights and obligations hereunder to another office, branch or Affiliate of such Affected Person if, in the judgment of such Affected Person, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 5.01 or 5.03, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) would not subject such Affected
-59-



Person to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Affected Person. The Borrower hereby agrees to pay all reasonable out of pocket costs and expenses incurred by any Affected Person in connection with any such designation or assignment and delegation.
    (b)    If (i) any Affected Person requests compensation under Section 5.01, (ii) the Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Affected Person or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Affected Person pursuant to Section 5.03, (iii) any Affected Person has become a Defaulting Lender or (iv) any Affected Person has failed to consent to a proposed amendment, waiver, discharge or termination that requires the consent of all Lenders and with respect to which the other Lenders shall have or would have granted their consent, then the Borrower may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to the Administrative Agent, require the Administrative Agent to cause the related Affected Person to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to all applicable transfer restrictions), all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to another appropriate Person (which, in the case of a Lender, shall be an Eligible Assignee) that shall acquire such interest or assume such commitment; provided that (a) the Borrower shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent and the other Lenders, which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld, (b) such Affected Person, if a Lender, shall have received payment of an amount equal to its outstanding Capital and, if applicable, accrued Interest and Fees thereon and all other amounts then owing to it hereunder from the assignee or the Borrower, (c) in the case of any such assignment and delegation resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 5.01 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 5.03, such assignment is expected to result in a reduction in such compensation or payments for future periods and (d) in the case of any such assignment and delegation resulting from the failure of an Affected Person to provide a consent, the assignee shall have given such consent and, as a result of such assignment and delegation and any contemporaneous assignments and delegations and consents, the applicable amendment, waiver, discharge or termination can be effected. An Affected Person shall not be required to make any such assignment and delegation if, prior thereto, as a result of a waiver or consent by such Affected Person or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Borrower to require such assignment and delegation have ceased to apply.

The Servicer will carry on and conduct its business in substantially the same manner and in substantially the same fields of enterprise as it is presently conducted, and will do all things necessary to remain duly incorporated, validly existing and in good standing as a domestic corporation in its jurisdiction of incorporation and maintain all requisite authority to conduct its business in each jurisdiction in which its business is conducted if the failure to have such authority could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.
    (d)    Compliance with Laws. The Servicer will comply with all Applicable Laws to which it may be subject if the failure to comply could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

The Servicer will not, and will not permit the Borrower, any Originator or any other Person to commingle Collections or other funds to which the Administrative Agent, any Group Agent, any Lender or any other Secured Party is entitled, with any other funds, except for any Permitted Commingling. At any time upon notice from the Administrative Agent (at the direction of the Majority Group Agents), the Administrative Agent (at the direction of the Majority Group Agents) may no longer allow Permitted Commingling and within 30 days of receipt of such notice the Servicer shall instruct all obligors on accounts receivable originated by Webhelp Americas LLC, Webhelp USA LLC and/or Webhelp California, Inc. to deliver payments on such accounts receivable into an account which is not a Collection Account.

The Servicer shall only terminate a Collection Account Bank or close a Collection Account (or a related Lock-Box) with the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent.

Except as otherwise permitted in Section 9.02, the Servicer will not alter the delinquency status or adjust the Outstanding Balance or otherwise modify the terms of any Pool Receivable in any material respect, or amend, modify or waive, in any material respect, any term or condition of any related Contract that affects or could affect any Pool Receivable. The Servicer shall at its expense, timely and fully perform and comply in all material respects with all provisions, covenants and other promises required to be observed by it under the Contracts related to the Pool Receivables, and timely and fully comply with the Credit and Collection Policy with regard to each Pool Receivable and the related Contract.

    (l)    Security Interest, Etc. The Servicer shall, at its expense, take all action necessary or reasonably desirable to establish and maintain a valid and enforceable first priority perfected security interest in the Collateral, in each case free and clear of any Adverse Claim in favor of the Administrative Agent (on behalf of the Secured Parties), including taking such action to perfect, protect or more fully evidence the security interest of the Administrative Agent (on behalf of the Secured Parties) as the Administrative Agent or any Secured Party may reasonably request. In order to evidence the security interests of the Administrative Agent under this Agreement, the Servicer shall, from time to time take such action, or execute and deliver such instruments as may be necessary (including, without limitation, such actions as are reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent) to maintain and perfect, as a first-priority interest, the Administrative Agent’s security interest in the Receivables, Related Security and Collections. The Servicer shall, from time to time and within the time limits established by applicable law, prepare and present to the Administrative Agent for the Administrative Agent’s authorization and approval, all financing statements, amendments, continuations or initial financing statements in lieu of a continuation statement, or other filings necessary to continue, maintain and perfect the Administrative Agent’s security interest as a first-priority interest. The Administrative Agent’s approval of such filings shall authorize the Servicer to file such financing statements under the UCC without the signature of the Borrower, any Originator or the Administrative Agent where allowed by Applicable Law. Notwithstanding anything else in the Transaction Documents to the
-90-



contrary, the Servicer shall not have any authority to file a termination, partial termination, release, partial release, or any amendment that deletes the name of a debtor or excludes any Collateral of any such financing statements filed in connection with the Transaction Documents, without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent.
    (m)    Further Assurances. The Servicer hereby authorizes and hereby agrees from time to time, at its own expense, promptly to execute (if necessary) and deliver all further instruments and documents and to take all further actions, that may be necessary or desirable, or that the Administrative Agent may reasonably request, to perfect, protect or more fully evidence the security interest granted pursuant to this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, or to enable the Administrative Agent (on behalf of the Secured Parties) to exercise and enforce their respective rights and remedies under this Agreement or any other Transaction Document. Without limiting the foregoing, the Servicer hereby authorizes, and will, upon the request of the Administrative Agent, at the Servicer’s own expense, execute (if necessary) and file such financing statements or continuation statements, or amendments thereto, and such other instruments and documents, that may be necessary or desirable, or that the Administrative Agent may reasonably request, to perfect, protect or evidence any of the foregoing. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Servicer shall take such actions and provide such documentation (and hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to do the same) as may be requested by the Administrative Agent in order to satisfy the requirements of the Assignment of Claims Act of 1940, and any similar state legislation, with respect to any Receivable the Obligor of which is a United States federal, state or local Governmental Authority.
    (n)    Taxes. The Servicer shall cause the Borrower to comply with its obligations under Section 8.01(bb); except, however, the Servicer shall have no responsibility for payment of any Taxes related to income reflected on a consolidated, combined or unitary return filed by the parent (or other member besides Borrower) of a consolidated, combined or unitary group including Borrower.

-91-



procedures reasonably designed to ensure compliance with all applicable Anti-Corruption Laws, Anti-Money Laundering Laws and International Trade Laws by each Covered Entity, and its directors and officers, and any employee, agent or affiliate acting on behalf of such Covered Entity in connection with this Agreement. The Servicer shall not and, for as long as any Lender has any outstanding Commitment or Loans hereunder, the Servicer shall not permit its directors and officers, and any employee, agent, or affiliate acting on behalf of the Servicer in connection with this Agreement, nor the Servicer’s Subsidiaries to: (a) directly or indirectly, provide, use, or make available the proceeds of any Loan hereunder (i) to fund any activities or business of, with, or for the benefit of any Person that, at the time of such funding or facilitation, is (A) a Sanctioned Person (other than a Blocked Person) in violation of International Trade Law or (B) a Blocked Person, (ii) to fund or facilitate any activities or business of or in any Sanctioned Jurisdiction (except with respect to any country, area, territory, or jurisdiction (other than Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria and the Crimea, Donetsk People’s Republic and Luhansk People’s Republic regions of Ukraine) that becomes a Sanctioned Jurisdiction after the Third Amendment Date and, in such case, solely to the extent and for such period of time required to winddown relations with respect thereto and in each event in accordance with International Trade Law), (iii) in any manner that will result in a violation by any Credit Party or Loan Party of Anti-Corruption Law, Anti-Money Laundering, or International Trade Laws or (iv) in violation of any Applicable Law, including, without limitation, any applicable Anti-Corruption Law, Anti-Money Laundering Law or International Trade Law; (b) repay any Loan with Blocked Property or funds derived from any unlawful activity; or (c) permit any Collateral to become Blocked Property.

    Section 8.03.    Separate Existence of the Borrower. Each of the Borrower and the Servicer hereby acknowledges that the Secured Parties, the Group Agents, the Lenders and the Administrative Agent are entering into the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents in reliance upon the Borrower’s identity as a legal entity separate from any Originator, the Servicer, the Performance Guarantor and their Affiliates. Therefore, each of the Borrower and Servicer shall take all steps specifically required by this Agreement or reasonably required by the Administrative Agent, any Group Agent or any Lender to continue the Borrower’s identity as a separate legal entity and to make it apparent to third Persons that the Borrower is an entity with assets and liabilities distinct from those of the Performance Guarantor, the Originators, the Servicer and any other Person, and is not a division of the Performance Guarantor, the Originators, the Servicer, their Affiliates or any other Person. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing and in addition to and consistent with the other covenants set forth
-92-



herein, each of the Borrower and the Servicer shall take such actions as shall be required in order that:

Neither the Borrower on the one hand, nor the Servicer, the Performance Guarantor any Originator or any Affiliate thereof, on the other hand, will be or will hold itself out to be responsible for the debts of the other or the decisions or actions respecting the daily business and affairs of the other. The Borrower, the Servicer, the Performance Guarantor, the Originators and their respective Affiliates will immediately correct any known misrepresentation with respect to the foregoing, and they will not operate or purport to operate as an integrated single economic unit with respect to each other or in their dealing with any other entity.

time thereafter give notice to each Collection Account Bank that the Administrative Agent is exercising its rights under the Account Control Agreements to do any or all of the following: (a) to have the exclusive ownership and control of the Collection Accounts transferred to the Administrative Agent (for the benefit of the Secured Parties) and to exercise exclusive dominion and control over the funds deposited therein, (b) to have the proceeds that are sent to the respective Collection Accounts redirected pursuant to the Administrative Agent’s instructions rather than deposited in the applicable Collection Account and (c) to take any or all other actions permitted under the applicable Account Control Agreement. The Borrower hereby agrees that if the Administrative Agent at any time takes any action set forth in the preceding sentence, the Administrative Agent shall have exclusive control (for the benefit of the Secured Parties) of the proceeds (including Collections) of all Pool Receivables and the Borrower hereby further agrees to take any other action that the Administrative Agent may reasonably request to transfer such control. Any proceeds of Pool Receivables received by the Borrower or the Servicer thereafter shall be sent immediately to, or as otherwise instructed by, the Administrative Agent.
    Section 9.04.    Enforcement Rights. (a) At any time following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default:

    (ii)    the Administrative Agent may instruct the Borrower or the Servicer to give notice of the Secured Parties’ interest in Pool Receivables to each Obligor, which notice shall direct that payments be made directly to the Administrative Agent or its designee (on behalf of the Secured Parties), and the Borrower or the Servicer, as the case may be, shall give such notice at the expense of the Borrower or the Servicer, as the case may be; provided, that if the Borrower or the Servicer, as the case may be, fails to so notify each Obligor within two (2) Business Days following instruction by the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent (at the Borrower’s or the Servicer’s, as the case may be, expense) may so notify the Obligors;
    (iii)    the Administrative Agent may request the Servicer to, and upon such request the Servicer shall: (A) assemble all of the records necessary or desirable to collect the Pool Receivables and the Related Security, and transfer or license to a successor Servicer the use of all software necessary or desirable to collect the Pool Receivables and the Related Security, and make the same available to the Administrative Agent or its designee (for the benefit of the Secured Parties) at a place selected by the Administrative Agent and (B) segregate all cash, checks and other instruments received by it from time to time constituting Collections in a manner reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and, promptly upon receipt, remit all such cash, checks and instruments, duly endorsed or with duly executed instruments of transfer, to the Administrative Agent or its designee;

For the avoidance of doubt, the foregoing rights and remedies of the Administrative Agent upon an Event of Default are in addition to and not exclusive of the rights and remedies contained herein and under the other Transaction Documents.
    (b)    The Borrower hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent (on behalf of the Secured Parties), and irrevocably appoints the Administrative Agent as its attorney-in-fact with full power of substitution and with full authority in the place and stead of the Borrower, which appointment is coupled with an interest, to take any and all steps in the name of the Borrower and on behalf of the Borrower necessary or desirable, in the reasonable determination of the Administrative Agent, after the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, to collect any and all amounts or portions thereof due under any and all Collateral, including endorsing the name of the Borrower on checks and other instruments representing Collections and enforcing such Collateral. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this subsection, none of the powers conferred upon such attorney-in-fact pursuant to the preceding sentence shall subject such attorney-in-fact to any liability if any action taken by it shall prove to be inadequate or invalid, nor shall they confer any obligations upon such attorney-in-fact in any manner whatsoever.
    (c)    The Servicer hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent (on behalf of the Secured Parties), and irrevocably appoints the Administrative Agent as its attorney-in-fact with full power of substitution and with full authority in the place and stead of the Servicer, which appointment is coupled with an interest, to take any and all steps in the name of the Servicer and on behalf of the Servicer necessary or desirable, in the reasonable determination of the Administrative Agent, after the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, to collect any and all amounts or portions thereof due under any and all Collateral, including endorsing the name of the Servicer on checks and other instruments representing Collections and enforcing such Collateral. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this subsection, none of the powers conferred upon such attorney-in-fact pursuant to the preceding sentence shall subject such attorney-in-fact to any liability if any action taken by it shall prove to be inadequate or invalid, nor shall they confer any obligations upon such attorney-in-fact in any manner whatsoever.
    Section 9.05.    Responsibilities of the Borrower. (a) Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the Borrower shall: (i) perform all of its obligations, if any, under the Contracts related to the Pool Receivables to the same extent as if interests in such Pool Receivables had not
-100-



been transferred hereunder, and the exercise by the Administrative Agent, or any other Credit Party of their respective rights hereunder shall not relieve the Borrower from such obligations and (ii) pay when due any taxes, including any sales taxes payable in connection with the Pool Receivables and their creation and satisfaction. None of the Credit Parties shall have any obligation or liability with respect to any Collateral, nor shall any of them be obligated to perform any of the obligations of the Borrower, the Servicer or any Originator thereunder.
    (b)    Sponsor hereby irrevocably agrees that if at any time it shall cease to be the Servicer hereunder, it shall act (if the then-current Servicer so requests) as the data-processing agent of the Servicer and, in such capacity, Sponsor shall conduct the data-processing functions of the administration of the Receivables and the Collections thereon in substantially the same way that Sponsor conducted such data-processing functions while it acted as the Servicer. In connection with any such processing functions, the Borrower shall pay to Sponsor its reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses from the Borrower’s own funds (subject to the priority of payments set forth in Section 4.01).
    Section 9.06.    Servicing Fee. (a) Subject to clause (b) below, the Servicer shall be paid a fee (the “Servicing Fee”) equal to 1% per annum (the “Servicing Fee Rate”) of the monthly average aggregate Outstanding Balance of the Pool Receivables.
    (b)    If the Servicer ceases to be Sponsor or an Affiliate of the Sponsor, the Servicing Fee shall be the greater of (i) the amount calculated pursuant to clause (a) above and (ii) an alternative amount specified by the successor Servicer not to exceed 110% of the aggregate reasonable costs and expenses incurred by such successor Servicer in connection with the performance of its obligations as Servicer hereunder.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, a Group Agent: (a) may consult with legal counsel (including counsel for the Administrative Agent, the Borrower or the Servicer), independent certified public accountants 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, accountants or experts; (b) makes no warranty or representation to any Credit Party (whether written or oral) and shall not be responsible to any Credit Party for any statements, warranties or representations (whether written or oral) made by any other party in or in connection with this Agreement or any other Transaction Document; (c) 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 Agreement or any other Transaction Document on the part of the Borrower or any Affiliate thereof or any other Person or to inspect the property (including the books and records) of the Borrower or any Affiliate thereof; (d) shall not be responsible to any Credit Party for the due execution, legality, validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of this Agreement, any other Transaction Documents or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto; and (e) shall be entitled to rely, and shall be fully protected in so relying, upon any notice (including notice by telephone), consent, certificate or other instrument or writing (which may be by facsimile) believed by it to be genuine and signed or sent by the proper party or parties.
    Section 12.03.    Group Agent and Affiliates. With respect to any Credit Extension or interests therein owned by any Credit Party that is also a Group Agent, such Credit Party shall have the same rights and powers under this Agreement as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not a Group Agent. A Group Agent and any of its Affiliates may generally engage in any kind of business with the Borrower or any Affiliate thereof and any Person who may do business with or own securities of the Borrower or any Affiliate thereof or any of their respective Affiliates, all as if such Group Agent were not a Group Agent hereunder and without any duty to account therefor to any other Secured Party.
    Section 12.04.    Indemnification of Group Agents. Each Committed Lender in any Group agrees to indemnify the Group Agent for such Group (to the extent not reimbursed by the Borrower or any Affiliate thereof), ratably according to the proportion of the Percentage of such Committed Lender to the aggregate Percentages of all Committed Lenders in such Group, from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever which may be imposed
-110-



on, incurred by, or asserted against such Group Agent in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document or any action taken or omitted by such Group Agent under this Agreement or any other Transaction Document; provided that no Committed Lender shall be liable for any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting from such Group Agent’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.
    Section 12.05.    Delegation of Duties. Each Group Agent may execute any of its duties through agents or attorneys-in-fact and shall be entitled to advice of counsel concerning all matters pertaining to such duties. No Group Agent shall be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any agents or attorneys-in-fact selected by it with reasonable care.
    Section 12.06.    Notice of Events of Default. No Group Agent shall be deemed to have knowledge or notice of the occurrence of any Unmatured Event of Default or Event of Default unless such Group Agent has received notice from the Administrative Agent, any other Group Agent, any other Credit Party, the Servicer or the Borrower stating that an Unmatured Event of Default or Event of Default has occurred hereunder and describing such Unmatured Event of Default or Event of Default. If a Group Agent receives such a notice, it shall promptly give notice thereof to the Credit Parties in its Group and to the Administrative Agent (but only if such notice received by such Group Agent was not sent by the Administrative Agent). A Group Agent may take such action concerning an Unmatured Event of Default or Event of Default as may be directed by Committed Lenders in its Group representing a majority of the Commitments in such Group (subject to the other provisions of this Article XII), but until such Group Agent receives such directions, such Group Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, as such Group Agent deems advisable and in the best interests of the Conduit Lenders and Committed Lenders in its Group.
    Section 12.07.    Non-Reliance on Group Agents and Other Parties. Each Credit Party expressly acknowledges that neither the Group Agent for its Group nor any of such Group Agent’s directors, officers, agents or employees has made any representations or warranties to it and that no act by such Group Agent hereafter taken, including any review of the affairs of the Borrower or any Affiliate thereof, shall be deemed to constitute any representation or warranty by such Group Agent. Each Credit Party represents and warrants to the Group Agent for its Group that, independently and without reliance upon such Group Agent, any other Group Agent, the Administrative Agent or any other Credit Party and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, it has made and will continue to make its own appraisal of and investigation into the business, operations, property, prospects, financial and other conditions and creditworthiness of the Borrower or any Affiliate thereof and the Receivables and its own decision to enter into this Agreement and to take, or omit, action under any Transaction Document. Except for items expressly required to be delivered under any Transaction Document by a Group Agent to any Credit Party in its Group, no Group Agent shall have any duty or responsibility to provide any Credit Party in its Group with any information concerning the Borrower or any Affiliate thereof that comes into the possession of such Group Agent or any of its directors, officers, agents, employees, attorneys-in-fact or Affiliates.

    Section 12.08.    Successor Group Agent. Any Group Agent may, upon at least thirty (30) days’ notice to the Administrative Agent, the Borrower, the Servicer and the Credit Parties in its Group, resign as Group Agent for its Group. Such resignation shall not become effective until a successor Group Agent is appointed by the Lender(s) in such Group. Upon such acceptance of its appointment as Group Agent for such Group hereunder by a successor Group Agent, such successor Group Agent shall succeed to and become vested with all the rights and duties of the resigning Group Agent, and the resigning Group Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations under the Transaction Documents. After any resigning Group Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article XII and Article XIII shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was a Group Agent.
    Section 12.09.    Reliance on Group Agent. Unless otherwise advised in writing by a Group Agent or by any Credit Party in such Group Agent’s Group, each party to this Agreement may assume that (i) such Group Agent is acting for the benefit and on behalf of each of the Credit Parties in its Group, as well as for the benefit of each assignee or other transferee from any such Person and (ii) each action taken by such Group Agent has been duly authorized and approved by all necessary action on the part of the Credit Parties in its Group.
