Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings assigned such terms in Appendix A to the Indenture dated as of September 19, 2018 (the “Indenture”) by and between the Issuing Entity and the Indenture Trustee.

WHEREAS, to secure payment of the Notes, the Issuing Entity has pledged the Collateral to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to the Indenture;

 

WHEREAS, pursuant to the Issuing Entity Documents, the Issuing Entity is required to perform certain duties;

 

WHEREAS, the Issuing Entity desires to have the Administrator perform certain of the duties of the Issuing Entity, and to provide such additional services consistent with this Agreement and the Issuing Entity Documents as the Issuing Entity may from time to time request;

 

WHEREAS, the Administrator has the capacity to provide the services required hereby and is willing to perform such services for the Issuing Entity on the terms set forth herein;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual terms and covenants contained herein, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and adequacy of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:

 

1.Duties of the Administrator.

 

(a)          Duties with Respect to the Issuing Entity Documents. The Administrator shall perform all of its duties as Administrator under this Agreement and the Issuing Entity Documents and the duties and obligations of the Issuing Entity and the Owner Trustee (in its capacity as owner trustee) under the Issuing Entity Documents; provided, however, except as otherwise provided in the Issuing Entity Documents, that the Administrator shall have no obligation to make any payment required to be made by the Issuing Entity under any Issuing Entity Document. In addition, the Administrator shall consult with the Issuing Entity and the Owner Trustee regarding its duties and obligations under the Issuing Entity Documents. The Administrator shall monitor the performance of the Issuing Entity and the Owner Trustee and shall advise the Issuing Entity and the Owner Trustee when action is necessary to comply with the Issuing Entity’s and the Owner Trustee’s duties and obligations under the Issuing Entity Documents. The Administrator shall perform such calculations, and shall prepare for execution by the Issuing Entity or the Owner Trustee or shall cause the preparation by other appropriate persons of all such documents, reports, filings, instruments, certificates and opinions as it shall be the duty of the Issuing Entity or the Owner Trustee (in its capacity as owner trustee) to prepare, file or deliver pursuant to the Issuing Entity Documents. In furtherance of the foregoing, the Administrator shall take all appropriate action that is the duty of the Issuing Entity or the Owner Trustee (in its capacity as owner trustee) to take pursuant to the Issuing Entity Documents, and shall prepare and execute on behalf of the Issuing Entity or the Owner Trustee all such documents, reports, filings, instruments, certificates and opinions as it shall be the duty of the Issuing Entity or the Owner Trustee to prepare, file or deliver pursuant to the Issuing Entity Documents or otherwise by applicable law. To the extent a Reallocation Request received from a Noteholder or Note Owner has not been resolved, the alleged breach has not otherwise been cured or the related Transaction Unit has not otherwise been reallocated, paid-off or otherwise satisfied, within 180 days of the receipt of notice of the Reallocation Request by the Seller, the Administrator shall direct the Indenture Trustee to notify such Requesting Party that the Reallocation Request remains unresolved in connection with Section 2.3(d) of the Exchange Note Sale Agreement.

 

 

 

 

(b)          No Action by Administrator. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Agreement, the Administrator shall not be obligated to, and shall not, take any action that the Issuing Entity directs the Administrator not to take or which would result in a violation or breach of the Issuing Entity’s covenants, agreements or obligations under any of the Issuing Entity Documents.

 

(c)          Non-Ministerial Matters; Exceptions to Administrator Duties.

 

(i)          Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, with respect to matters that in the reasonable judgment of the Administrator are non-ministerial, the Administrator shall not take any action unless, within a reasonable time before the taking of such action, the Administrator shall have notified the Issuing Entity of the proposed action and the Issuing Entity shall not have withheld consent or provided an alternative direction. For the purpose of the preceding sentence, “non-ministerial matters” shall include, without limitation:

 

(A)         the initiation of any claim or lawsuit by the Issuing Entity and the compromise of any action, claim or lawsuit brought by or against the Issuing Entity;

(ii)         unless otherwise paid pursuant to Section 5.4(b)(i) of the Indenture, and except as otherwise expressly provided in the Indenture, reimburse the Indenture Trustee and any Separate Trustee for all reasonable expenses, disbursements and advances reasonably incurred in connection with the performance of their duties under the Indenture;

(vi)        unless otherwise paid pursuant to Section 5.4(b)(i) of the Indenture, reimburse the Owner Trustee upon its request for all reasonable expenses, disbursements and advances incurred or made by the Owner Trustee in accordance with any provision of the Trust Agreement (including the reasonable compensation, expenses and disbursements of such agents and counsel as the Owner Trustee may employ in connection with the exercise and performance of its rights and authority and its duties under the Trust Agreement), except any such expense that may be attributable to the Owner Trustee’s willful misconduct, gross negligence or bad faith; and

 

(vii)       unless otherwise paid pursuant to Section 5.4(b)(i) of the Indenture, indemnify the Owner Trustee in its individual capacity and as trustee and its successors, assigns, directors, officers, employees and agents in accordance with Section 8.02 of the Trust Agreement;

 

provided that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or in any other Transaction Document, clauses (i) through (vii) above shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

 

4.             Independence of the Administrator. For all purposes of this Agreement, the Administrator shall be an independent contractor and shall not be subject to the supervision of the Issuing Entity or the Owner Trustee with respect to the manner in which it accomplishes the performance of its obligations hereunder. Unless expressly authorized by the Issuing Entity, the Administrator shall have no authority to act for or to represent the Issuing Entity in any way (other than as permitted hereunder) and shall not otherwise be deemed an agent of the Issuing Entity.

 

5.             No Joint Venture. Nothing contained in this Agreement (i) shall constitute the Administrator and the Issuing Entity as members of any partnership, joint venture, association, syndicate, unincorporated business or other separate entity, (ii) shall be construed to impose any liability as such on any of them or (iii) shall be deemed to confer on any of them any express, implied or apparent authority to incur any obligation or liability on behalf of the others.

6.             Other Activities of the Administrator. Nothing herein shall prevent the Administrator or its Affiliates from engaging in other businesses or, in its sole discretion, from acting in a similar capacity as an Administrator for any other Person even though such Person may engage in business activities similar to those of the Issuing Entity, the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee.

 

7.             Representations and Warranties of the Administrator. The Administrator represents and warrants to the Issuing Entity and the Indenture Trustee as follows:

 

(a)          Existence and Power. The Administrator is a corporation validly existing and in good standing under the laws of its state of organization and has, in all material respects, all power and authority to carry on its business as now conducted. The Administrator has obtained all necessary licenses and approvals in each jurisdiction where the failure to do so would materially and adversely affect the ability of the Administrator to perform its obligations under the Transaction Documents.

 

(b)          Authorization and No Contravention. The execution, delivery and performance by the Administrator of the Transaction Documents to which it is a party (i) have been duly authorized by all necessary action on the part of the Administrator and (ii) do not contravene or constitute a default under (A) any applicable law, rule or regulation, (B) its organizational documents or (C) any material agreement, contract, order or other instrument to which it is a party or its property is subject, other than violations which do not affect the legality, validity or enforceability of any of such agreements and which, individually or in the aggregate, would not materially and adversely affect the transactions contemplated by, or the Administrator’s ability to perform its obligations under, the Transaction Documents.

 

(c)          No Consent Required. No approval or authorization by, or filing with, any Governmental Authority is required in connection with the execution, delivery and performance by the Administrator of any Transaction Document other than (i) UCC filings, (ii) approvals and authorizations that have previously been obtained and filings that have previously been made and (iii) approvals, authorizations or filings which, if not obtained or made, would not materially and adversely affect the ability of the Administrator to perform its obligations under the Transaction Documents.

 

(d)          Binding Effect. Each Transaction Document to which the Administrator is a party constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Administrator enforceable against the Administrator in accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, receivership, conservatorship or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and, if applicable, the rights of creditors of limited liability companies from time to time in effect or by general principles of equity.

 

8.             Administrator Replacement Events; Termination of the Administrator.

 

(a)          Subject to clauses (d) and (e) below, the Administrator may resign its duties hereunder by providing the Issuing Entity with at least sixty (60) days’ prior written notice.

 

- 5 -

 

 

(b)          Subject to clauses (d) and (e) below, the Issuing Entity may remove the Administrator without cause by providing the Administrator with at least sixty (60) days’ prior written notice.

 

(c)          The occurrence of any one of the following events (each, an “Administrator Replacement Event”) shall also entitle the Issuing Entity, subject to Section 19 hereof, to terminate and replace the Administrator:

 

(i)          any failure by the Administrator to deliver or cause to be delivered any required payment to the Indenture Trustee for distribution to the Noteholders, which failure continues unremedied for ten business days after discovery thereof by a Responsible Officer of the Administrator or receipt by the Administrator of written notice thereof from the Indenture Trustee or Noteholders evidencing at least a majority of the aggregate principal amount of the Outstanding Notes, voting together as a single class;

 

(ii)         any failure by the Administrator to duly observe or perform in any material respect any other of its covenants or agreements in this Agreement, which failure materially and adversely affects the rights of the Issuing Entity or the Noteholders, and which continues unremedied for 90 days after discovery thereof by a Responsible Officer of the Administrator or receipt by the Administrator of written notice thereof from the Indenture Trustee or Noteholders evidencing at least a majority of the aggregate principal amount of the Outstanding Notes, voting together as a single class;

 

(iii)        any representation or warranty of the Administrator made in any Transaction Document to which the Administrator is a party or by which it is bound or any certificate delivered pursuant to this Agreement proves to have been incorrect in any material respect when made, which failure materially and adversely affects the rights of the Issuing Entity or the Noteholders, and which failure continues unremedied for 90 days after discovery thereof by a Responsible Officer of the Administrator or receipt by the Administrator of written notice thereof from the Indenture Trustee or Noteholders evidencing at least a majority of the aggregate principal amount of the Outstanding Notes, voting together as a single class (it being understood that any reallocation of a Transaction Unit from the Reference Pool to the Warehouse Facility Pool or any Unencumbered Reference Pool by ALF LLC pursuant to Section 2.3 of the Exchange Note Sale Agreement shall be deemed to remedy any incorrect representation or warranty with respect to such Transaction Unit); or

 

(iv)        the Administrator suffers a Bankruptcy Event.

 

provided, however, that a delay in or failure of performance referred to under clauses (i), (ii) or (iii) above for a period of not more than 150 days will not constitute an Administrator Replacement Event if such delay or failure was caused by force majeure or other similar occurrence.

 

- 6 -

 

 

(d)          If an Administrator Replacement Event shall have occurred, the Issuing Entity may, subject to Section 19 hereof, by notice given to the Administrator and the Owner Trustee, terminate all or a portion of the rights and powers of the Administrator under this Agreement, including the rights of the Administrator to receive the annual fee for services hereunder for all periods following such termination; provided, however, that such termination shall not become effective until such time as the Issuing Entity, subject to Section 19 hereof, shall have appointed a successor Administrator in the manner set forth below. Upon any such termination, all rights, powers, duties and responsibilities of the Administrator under this Agreement shall vest in and be assumed by any successor Administrator appointed by the Issuing Entity, subject to Section 19 hereof, pursuant to a management agreement between the Issuing Entity and such successor Administrator, containing substantially the same provisions as this Agreement (including with respect to the compensation of such successor Administrator), and the successor Administrator is hereby irrevocably authorized and empowered to execute and deliver, on behalf of the Administrator, as attorney-in-fact or otherwise, all documents and other instruments, and to do or accomplish all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect such vesting and assumption. Further, in such event, the Administrator shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to effect the orderly and efficient transfer of the administration of the Issuing Entity to the new Administrator.

 

(e)          The Issuing Entity, subject to Section 19 hereof, may waive in writing any Administrator Replacement Event by the Administrator in the performance of its obligations hereunder and its consequences. Upon any such waiver of a past Administrator Replacement Event, such Administrator Replacement Event shall cease to exist, and any Administrator Replacement Event arising therefrom shall be deemed to have been remedied for every purpose of this Agreement. No such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other Administrator Replacement Event or impair any right consequent thereon.

 

9.             Action upon Termination or Removal. Promptly upon the effective date of termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 8, or the removal of the Administrator pursuant to Section 8, the Administrator shall be entitled to be paid all fees and reimbursable expenses accruing to it to the date of such termination or removal.

 

10.           Liens. The Administrator will not directly or indirectly create, allow or suffer to exist any Lien on the Collateral other than Permitted Liens.
