Related to Other Series
Additional Series In the event that the Trust establishes one or more series after the effectiveness of this Agreement ("Additional Series"), Appendix A to this Agreement may be amended to make such Additional Series subject to this Agreement upon the approval of the Board of Trustees of the Trust and the shareholder(s) of the Additional Series, in accordance with the provisions of the Act. The Trust or the Adviser may elect not to make any such series subject to this Agreement.
New Series The terms and provisions of this Agreement shall become automatically applicable to any additional series of the Trust established during the initial or renewal term of this Agreement.

The failure to pay such amounts within two Business Days of such demand (except for amounts to cover interest on a Mortgage Loan pursuant to Sections 2.02(d) and 2.03 (b)), shall cause an immediate termination of the Purchaser's right to make any Election to Delay Foreclosure or Election to Foreclose and the Company's obligations under this Agreement with respect to all Mortgage Loans to which such insufficiencies relate, without the necessity of any further notice or demand on the part of the Company.

A Series may issue any number of Shares and need not issue shares. At any time that there are no Shares outstanding of any particular Series previously established and designated, the Trustees may by a majority vote abolish that Series and the establishment and designation thereof.

Each Share of a Series of the Trust shall represent an equal beneficial interest in the net assets of such Series.
