(b)                                 [Reserved].

 

Section 2.2.                                                              [Reserved].

 

ARTICLE III
The Receivables

 

Section 3.1.                                                              Representations and Warranties of Seller.  The Seller makes the following representations and warranties as to the Receivables on which the Issuing Entity is deemed to have relied in acquiring the Receivables.  Such representations and warranties speak as of the Closing Date, but shall survive the sale, transfer and assignment of the Receivables to the Issuing Entity and the pledge thereof to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to the Indenture.

 

(a)                                 Title.  It is the intention of the Seller that the transfer and assignment herein contemplated constitute a sale of the Receivables from the Seller to the Issuing Entity and that the beneficial interest in and title to the Receivables not be part of the debtor’s estate in the event of the filing of a bankruptcy petition by or against the Seller under any bankruptcy or similar law.  No Receivable has been sold, transferred, assigned or pledged by the Seller to any Person other than the Issuing Entity.  Immediately prior to the transfer and assignment herein contemplated, the Seller had good title to each Receivable, free and clear of all Liens and, immediately upon the transfer thereof, the Issuing Entity shall have good title to each Receivable, free and clear of all Liens; and the transfer and assignment of the Receivables to the Issuing Entity has been, or within the timeframe required by Section 3.1(b) hereof will be, perfected under the UCC.

 

If (but only to the extent that) the transfer of the CNHCR Assets hereunder is characterized by a court or other governmental authority as a loan rather than a sale, the Seller shall be deemed hereunder to have granted to the Issuing Entity a security interest in all of Seller’s right, title and interest in and to the CNHCR Assets.  Such security interest shall secure all of Seller’s obligations (monetary or otherwise) under this Agreement and the other Basic Documents to which it is a party, whether now or hereafter existing or arising, due or to become due, direct or indirect, absolute or contingent.  The Seller shall have, with respect to the property described in Section 2.1, and in addition to all the other rights and remedies available to Seller under this Agreement and applicable law, all the rights and remedies of a secured party under any applicable UCC, and this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under applicable law.

 

3



 

(b)                                 All Filings Made. All filings (including UCC filings) necessary in any jurisdiction to give the Issuing Entity a first priority perfected ownership interest in the Receivables, and to give the Indenture Trustee a first priority perfected security interest therein, have been made, or will be made within 10 days after the Closing Date.

 

(c)                                  Perfection Representations. The Seller further makes all the representations, warranties and covenants set forth in Schedule P.

 

Section 3.2.                                                              Repurchase upon Breach.  (a)  The Seller, the Servicer or the Trustee, as the case may be, shall inform the other parties to this Agreement and the Indenture Trustee promptly, in writing, upon the discovery of any breach of the Seller’s representations and warranties made pursuant to Section 3.1 or Section 6.1, or CNHCA’s representations and warranties made pursuant to Section 3.2(b) of the Purchase Agreement.  Unless a breach pursuant to the sections and documents referenced in the preceding sentence shall have been cured by the last day of the second (or, if the Seller elects, the first) Collection Period after such breach is discovered by the Servicer or the Trustee or in which the Trustee receives written notice from the Seller or the Servicer of such breach, the Seller shall be obligated, and, if necessary, the Seller or the Trustee shall enforce the obligation of CNHCA under the Purchase Agreement to repurchase any Receivable materially and adversely affected by any such breach as of such last day. As consideration for the repurchase of the Receivable, the Seller shall remit the Purchase Amount in the manner specified in Section 5.5; provided, however, that the obligation of the Seller to repurchase any Receivable arising solely as a result of a breach of CNHCA’s representations and warranties pursuant to Section 3.2(b) of the Purchase Agreement is subject to the receipt by the Seller of the Purchase Amount from CNHCA.  Subject to the provisions of Section 6.3, the sole remedy of the Issuing Entity, the Trustee, the Indenture Trustee, the Noteholders or the Certificateholders with respect to a breach of the representations and warranties pursuant to Section 3.1 and the agreement contained in this Section shall be to require the Seller to repurchase Receivables pursuant to this Section, subject to the conditions contained herein, and to enforce CNHCA’s obligation to the Seller to repurchase such Receivables pursuant to the Purchase Agreement.

 

(b)                                 With respect to all Receivables purchased or repurchased by, or otherwise transferred to (including Liquidated Receivables transferred under Section 4.3, 4.6 and 9.1) CNHCA, the Servicer, the Seller or their Affiliate pursuant to this Agreement or the Purchase Agreement: (i) the Issuing Entity, the Seller and the Indenture Trustee shall sell, transfer, assign, set over and otherwise convey to CNHCA, the Servicer, the Seller or their Affiliate, as applicable, without recourse, representation or warranty, all of the Issuing Entity’s, the Seller’s and the Indenture Trustee’s right, title and interest in, to and under such Receivables, related Financed Equipment, and all other CNHCR Assets related thereto, including all security and documents relating thereto, and (ii) the Issuing Entity, the Seller, and the Indenture Trustee shall be deemed to have released any security interest and any other claim under this Agreement and the Basic Documents in such Receivables, related Financed Equipment, and all other CNHCR Assets related thereto, including all security and documents relating thereto, without any further act or deed, and such Receivables, related Financed Equipment, and all security and documents relating thereto will be free of the Grant contained in the Indenture.

Section 3.3.                                                              Custody of Receivable Files.  To assure uniform quality in servicing the Receivables and to reduce administrative costs, the Issuing Entity hereby revocably appoints the Servicer, and the Servicer hereby accepts such appointment, to act for the benefit of the Issuing Entity and the Indenture Trustee as custodian of the following documents or instruments, which are hereby constructively delivered to the Indenture Trustee, as pledgee of the Issuing Entity with respect to each Receivable:

 

(a)                                 the original fully executed copy of the Receivable;

 

(b)                                 a record or facsimile of the original credit application fully executed by the Obligor;

 

(c)                                  the original certificate of title or file stamped copy of the UCC financing statement or such other documents that the Servicer shall keep on file (if any), in accordance with its customary procedures, evidencing the security interest of CNHCA in the Financed Equipment; and

 

(d)                                 any and all other documents that the Servicer, the Seller or CNHCA shall keep on file, in accordance with its customary procedures, relating to a Receivable, an Obligor or any of the Financed Equipment.

 

Section 3.4.                                                              Duties of Servicer as Custodian.  (a)  Safekeeping. The Servicer (or its Affiliates, but only in accordance with the second following sentence) shall hold the Receivable Files for the benefit of the Issuing Entity and the Indenture Trustee and maintain such accurate and complete accounts, records and computer systems pertaining to each Receivable File as shall enable the Issuing Entity to comply with this Agreement. In performing its duties as custodian, the Servicer shall act with reasonable care, using that degree of skill and attention that the Servicer exercises with respect to the receivable files relating to all comparable equipment receivables that the Servicer services for its Affiliates or others.  The Servicer, in its capacity as custodian, may at any time delegate its duties as custodian to any Affiliate of the Servicer; provided, that no such delegation shall relieve the Servicer of its responsibility with respect to such duties and the Servicer shall remain obligated and liable to the Issuing Entity, the Depositor and the Indenture Trustee for its duties hereunder as if the Servicer alone were performing such duties. The Servicer shall conduct, or cause to be conducted, periodic audits of the Receivable Files and the related accounts, records and computer systems, in such a manner as shall enable the Issuing Entity or the Indenture Trustee to verify the accuracy of the Servicer’s record keeping.  The Servicer shall promptly report to the Issuing Entity and the Indenture Trustee any material failure on its part, or its Affiliate’s part, to hold the Receivable Files and maintain its accounts, records and computer systems as herein provided and promptly take appropriate action to remedy any such failure. Nothing herein shall be deemed to require an initial review or any periodic review by the Issuing Entity, the Trustee or the Indenture Trustee of the Receivable Files.

 

(b)                                 Maintenance of and Access to Records. The Servicer shall maintain each Receivable File at one or more of its offices and/or one or more of its Affiliate’s offices; provided that at no time shall a Receivable File be moved to an office or location outside the geographic boundaries of the United States.  With at least five (5) Business Days prior notice, the

 

5



 

Servicer shall make available for inspection by the Seller, the Issuing Entity and the Indenture Trustee or their respective duly authorized representatives, attorneys or auditors a list of locations of the Receivable Files and the related accounts, records and computer systems maintained by the Servicer at such times during normal business hours as the Seller, the Issuing Entity or the Indenture Trustee shall instruct.

 

Section 3.5.                                                              Instructions; Authority To Act.  The Servicer shall be deemed to have received proper instructions with respect to the Receivable Files upon its receipt of written instructions signed by a Trust Officer of the Indenture Trustee.

 

Section 3.6.                                                              Custodian’s Indemnification.  The Servicer as custodian shall indemnify the Trust, the Trustee and the Indenture Trustee (and each of their officers, directors, employees and agents) for any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, compensatory damages, payments, costs or expenses of any kind whatsoever that may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Trust, the Trustee or the Indenture Trustee (or any of their officers, directors and agents) as the result of any improper act or omission in any way relating to the maintenance and custody by the Servicer as custodian of the Receivable Files; provided, however, that the Servicer shall not be liable: (a) to the Trustee for any portion of any such amount resulting from the willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence of the Trustee, and (b) to the Indenture Trustee for any portion of any such amount resulting from the willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence of the Indenture Trustee; and, provided further, that the Servicer shall only be liable pursuant to this Section 3.6 for its acts or omissions committed during the period it is serving as custodian hereunder.  Indemnification under this Section shall survive the resignation or removal of the Servicer as custodian, the resignation or removal of the Indenture Trustee or the termination of this Agreement.

 

Section 3.7.                                                              Effective Period and Termination.  The Servicer’s appointment as custodian shall become effective as of the Cutoff Date and shall continue in full force and effect until terminated pursuant to this Section.  If any Servicer shall resign as Servicer in accordance with this Agreement or if all of the rights and obligations of any Servicer shall have been terminated under Section 8.1, the appointment of such Servicer as custodian shall be terminated by:  (a) the Indenture Trustee, (b) the Noteholders of Notes evidencing not less than 25% of the Note Balance, (c) with the consent of Noteholders of Notes evidencing not less than 25% of the Note Balance, the Trustee or (d) Certificateholders evidencing not less than 25% of the beneficial interest in the Issuing Entity, in the same manner as the Indenture Trustee or such Holders may terminate the rights and obligations of the Servicer under Section 8.1.  The Indenture Trustee or, with the consent of the Indenture Trustee, the Trustee may terminate the Servicer’s appointment as custodian, with cause, at any time upon written notification to the Servicer, and without cause upon 30 days’ prior written notification to the Servicer. As soon as practicable after any termination of such appointment, the Servicer shall deliver the Receivable Files to the Indenture Trustee or the Indenture Trustee’s agent at such place(s) as the Indenture Trustee may reasonably designate.

 

Section 3.8.                                                              [Reserved]

ARTICLE IV
Administration and Servicing of Receivables

 

Section 4.1.                                                              Duties of Servicer.  The Servicer, for the benefit of the Issuing Entity, and (to the extent provided herein) the Indenture Trustee shall manage, service, administer and make collections on the Receivables with reasonable care, using that degree of skill and attention that the Servicer or Indenture Trustee, as applicable, exercises with respect to all comparable equipment receivables that it services for its Affiliates or others. The Servicer’s duties shall include collection and posting of all payments, responding to inquiries of Obligors on such Receivables, investigating delinquencies, sending payment coupons or statements to Obligors, reporting tax information to Obligors, accounting for collections and furnishing monthly and annual statements to the Trustee and the Indenture Trustee with respect to distributions. Subject to Section 4.2, the Servicer shall follow its then current customary standards, policies and procedures (“Servicing Procedures”) in performing its duties as Servicer.

 

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Servicer is authorized and empowered to execute and deliver, on behalf of itself, the Issuing Entity, the Trustee, the Indenture Trustee, the Certificateholders, the Noteholders or any of them, any and all instruments of satisfaction or cancellation, or partial or full release or discharge, and all other comparable instruments, with respect to such Receivables or the Financed Equipment securing such Receivables. If the Servicer shall commence a legal proceeding to enforce a Receivable, the Issuing Entity shall thereupon be deemed to have automatically assigned, solely for the purpose of collection, such Receivable to the Servicer. If in any enforcement suit or legal proceeding it shall be held that the Servicer may not enforce a Receivable on the ground that it shall not be a real party in interest or a holder entitled to enforce such Receivable, the Trustee shall, at the Servicer’s direction (and, so long as the Servicer is NH Credit, at the Servicer’s expense), take steps to enforce such Receivable, including bringing suit in its name or the name of the Trust, the Indenture Trustee, the Certificateholders or the Noteholders. The Trustee or the Indenture Trustee shall, upon the written request of the Servicer, furnish the Servicer with any powers of attorney and other documents reasonably necessary or appropriate to enable the Servicer to carry out its servicing and administrative duties hereunder.

 

Section 4.2.                                                              Collection and Allocation of Receivable Payments.  The Servicer shall make reasonable efforts to collect all payments called for under the Receivables as and when the same shall become due and shall follow its Servicing Procedures.  The Servicer shall allocate collections between principal and interest in accordance with its Servicing Procedures.

 

Without limiting the generality of the preceding or Section 4.1, the Servicer may grant extensions, rebates, refunds, deferrals, amendments, modifications or adjustments on a Receivable (regardless of whether or not the Receivable is a 180-Day Receivable, subject only to the following proviso) in accordance with its Servicing Procedures; provided, however, that if a Receivable is not a 180-Day Receivable and the Servicer (i) extends the date for final payment by the Obligor of any Receivable beyond the Final Scheduled Maturity Date or (ii) reduces the APR of a Receivable or reduces the aggregate amount of the Scheduled Payments due on any Receivable other than as required by applicable law (including the order of a court of competent jurisdiction), the Servicer may make such modifications to a Receivable but it shall promptly

 

7



 

purchase the Receivable from the Issuing Entity in accordance with Section 4.6 (a “Modification Purchase Event”); provided, further, that the Servicer shall not make a modification described in the preceding clause (i) or (ii) that would trigger a Modification Purchase Event for the sole purpose of purchasing a Receivable from the Issuing Entity. The Servicer may, in accordance with its Servicing Procedures, waive any late payment charge or any other fees that may be collected in the ordinary course of servicing a Receivable.

 

Subject to the proviso of the third sentence of this Section 4.2, the Servicer and its Affiliates may engage in any marketing practice or promotion or any sale of any products, goods or services to Obligors with respect to the Receivables so long as such practices, promotions or sales are offered to obligors of comparable equipment receivables serviced by the Servicer for itself or others, whether or not such practices, promotions or sales might result in a decrease in the aggregate amount of payments on the Receivables, prepayments or faster or slower timing of the payment of the Receivables.  The Servicer and its Affiliates may also sell insurance or debt cancellation products, including products which result in the cancellation of some or all of the amount of a Receivable upon the death or disability of an Obligor or any casualty with respect to the Financed Equipment.

 

Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Servicer and its Affiliates may refinance any Receivable and deposit an amount equal to the Purchase Amount for such Receivable into the Collection Account.  The receivable created by such refinancing shall not be property of the Issuing Entity, and related Financed Equipment and any part of the Receivables Files and other CNHCR Assets related to such Receivable shall be released to the Servicer or its Affiliate and shall no longer be subject to the terms hereof or the Indenture; provided further, that any security interests in favor of the Issuing Entity or the Indenture Trustee hereunder or under the Indenture in the related Financed Equipment and any other CNHCR Assets related to such Receivable shall be deemed released upon such deposit.  The parties hereto intend that the Servicer and its Affiliates will not refinance a Receivable pursuant to this Section 4.2 in order to provide direct or indirect assurance to the Depositor, the Indenture Trustee, the Trustee, the Noteholders, or the Certificateholder, as applicable, against loss by reason of the bankruptcy or insolvency (or other credit condition) of, or default by, the Obligor on, or the uncollectability of, any Receivable.

 

Section 4.3.                                                              Realization upon Receivables.  For the benefit of the Issuing Entity and the Indenture Trustee, the Servicer shall use reasonable efforts, consistent with its Servicing Procedures, to repossess or otherwise convert the ownership of the Financed Equipment securing any Receivable as to which the Servicer shall have determined eventual payment in full is unlikely.  The Servicer shall follow such Servicing Procedures as it shall deem necessary or advisable in its servicing of equipment receivables, which may include reasonable efforts to realize upon any recourse to Dealers and selling the Financed Equipment at public or private sale.  The foregoing shall be subject to the provision that, in any case in which the Financed Equipment shall have suffered damage, the Servicer shall not expend funds in connection with the repair or the repossession of such Financed Equipment unless it shall determine in accordance with its Servicing Procedures that such repair and/or repossession will increase the Liquidation Proceeds by an amount greater than the amount of such expenses.

Liquidated Receivables will be transferred to the Servicer or CNHCA (as the Servicer determines at such time) on the Business Day following the day on which such Receivable becomes a Liquidated Receivable (the “Liquidated Receivable Transfer Date”) so long as the related Liquidation Proceeds are deposited before the Liquidated Receivables are transferred to the Servicer or CNHCA, as applicable, and as of the Liquidated Receivable Transfer Date such Liquidated Receivables will no longer constitute Receivables for any purposes hereunder.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, as of the applicable Liquidated Receivable Transfer Date (i) the Issuing Entity, the Seller and the Indenture Trustee shall transfer, assign, set over and otherwise convey to CNHCA or Servicer, as applicable, without recourse, representation or warranty, all of the Issuing Entity’s, the Seller’s and the Indenture Trustee’s right, title and interest in, to and under such Liquidated Receivables and any related Financed Equipment and Collateral, and all security and documents relating thereto, other than Liquidation Proceeds (the “Liquidated Collateral”), and (ii) the Issuing Entity, the Seller, and the Indenture Trustee shall be deemed to have released any security interest and any other claim in such Liquidated Collateral under this Agreement and the Basic Documents, without any further act or deed, and such Liquidated Collateral shall be free of the Grant contained in the Indenture.

 

Section 4.4.                                                              Maintenance of Security Interests in Financed Equipment.  The Servicer shall, in accordance with its Servicing Procedures, take such steps as are necessary to maintain perfection of the security interest created by each Receivable in the related Financed Equipment (which may consist of Substitute Equipment); provided however, the Servicer may allow Financed Equipment to be released from any security interest in connection with Section 4.14.  The Servicer is hereby authorized to take such steps as are necessary to perfect or re-perfect such security interest for the benefit of the Issuing Entity and the Indenture Trustee in the event of the relocation of any Financed Equipment, any change to the UCC, a substitution of Substitute Equipment  or for any other reason.  Any out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Successor Servicer in connection with any such re-perfection shall be reimbursable in accordance with Section 5.6(b)(x).

 

Section 4.5.                                                              Covenants of Servicer.  The Servicer shall not release the Financed Equipment securing any Receivable from the security interest granted by such Receivable in whole or in part except in the event of payment in full by the Obligor thereunder or repossession, or as permitted under Section 4.14 or if such Receivable is a Reacquired Receivable, nor shall the Servicer impair the rights of the Issuing Entity, the Indenture Trustee, the Certificateholders or the Noteholders in such Receivables. The Servicer shall, in accordance with its Servicing Procedures, require that each Obligor shall have obtained physical damage insurance covering the Financed Equipment as of the execution of the Receivable.

 

Section 4.6.                                                              Purchase of Receivables upon Breach or Due to Modification.  The Servicer or the Trustee shall inform the other party, the Indenture Trustee, the Seller, NH Credit and CNHCA promptly, in writing, upon the occurrence or discovery of any breach pursuant to Sections 4.2, 4.4 or 4.5.  Unless a breach, pursuant to Sections 4.2, 4.4 or 4.5 shall have been cured by the last day of the Collection Period in which such breach occurs or is discovered, as applicable, the Servicer shall purchase or shall cause CNHCA to purchase any Receivable materially and adversely affected by such breach as of such last day.  In connection with a Modification Purchase Event, or if the Servicer takes any action not in accordance with its

 

9



 

Servicing Procedures during any Collection Period pursuant to Section 4.2 that materially impairs the rights of the Issuing Entity, the Indenture Trustee, the Certificateholders or the Noteholders in any Receivable, the Servicer shall purchase the related Receivable as of the last day of such Collection Period.  As consideration for the purchase of any such Receivable pursuant to either of the two preceding sentences, the Servicer shall remit or shall cause CNHCA to remit, as applicable, the Purchase Amount in the manner specified in Section 5.5.  Subject to Section 7.2, the sole remedy of the Issuing Entity, the Trustee, the Indenture Trustee, the Certificateholders or the Noteholders with respect to a breach pursuant to Sections 4.2, 4.4 or 4.5 shall be to require the Servicer to purchase or to cause CNHCA to purchase, as applicable, Receivables pursuant to this Section.  The Trustee shall have no duty to conduct any affirmative investigation as to the occurrence of any condition requiring the purchase of any Receivable pursuant to this Section.

 

Section 4.7.                                                              Servicing Fee.  The Servicing Fee for each Collection Period shall be equal to 1/12th of 1.00% of the Pool Balance as of the first day of such Collection Period; provided that with respect to any Successor Servicer hereunder, the Servicing Fee for each Collection Period shall be equal to the greater of (a) 1/12th of 1.00% of the Pool Balance as of the first day of such Collection Period, (b) $8.50 per Contract in the Trust Estate as of the first day of such Collection Period and (c) $5,000.

 

Section 4.8.                                                              Servicer’s Certificate.  On each Determination Date (beginning with the Determination Date immediately preceding the initial Payment Date) the Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee, the Indenture Trustee and the Seller with a copy to the Rating Agencies, a Servicer’s Certificate (containing substantially the same information as set forth in the form on Exhibit C) containing all information necessary to make the distributions pursuant to Sections 5.6 and 5.7 and the deposits to the Collection Account pursuant to Section 5.3 for the Collection Period preceding the date of such Servicer’s Certificate.

 

Section 4.9.                                                              Annual Statement as to Compliance; Notice of Default.  (a)  The Servicer shall deliver to the Issuing Entity and the Indenture Trustee, on or before March 30 of each year, an Officer’s Certificate of the Servicer providing such information as is required under Item 1123 of Regulation AB with respect to the prior calendar year.

 

(b)                                 The Servicer shall deliver to the Issuing Entity, on or before March 30 of each year, a report regarding the Servicer’s assessment of compliance with the applicable servicing criteria specified in Item 1122 of Regulation AB during the immediately preceding calendar year, including any material instance of noncompliance identified by the Servicer as required under Rules 13a-18 and 15d-18 of the Exchange Act and Item 1122 of Regulation AB.

 

(c)                                  The Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee, the Indenture Trustee and the Rating Agencies, promptly after having obtained knowledge thereof, but in no event later than five Business Days thereafter, written notice in an Officer’s Certificate of any event that, with the giving of notice or lapse of time, or both, would become a Servicer Default under  Section 8.1(a) or (b).

 

Section 4.10.                                                       Annual Independent Certified Public Accountants’ Report.  The Servicer shall cause a firm of independent certified public accountants, which may also render

 

10



 

other services to the Servicer, the Seller or any other Affiliate of CNH Global, to deliver to the Issuing Entity, the Indenture Trustee and, subject to Section 10.18, the Rating Agencies on or before March 30 of each year a report, providing its assessment of compliance with the minimum servicing criteria during the preceding calendar year, including disclosure of any material instance of non-compliance, as required by Rule 13a-18 and 15d-18 of the Exchange Act and Item 1122(b) of Regulation AB.  Such attestation will be in accordance with Rules 1-02(a)(3) and 2-02(g) of Regulation S-X under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act.

 

The report required by this Section may be replaced, at the Servicer’s option, by any similar report or certification using standards which are now or in the future in use by servicers of comparable assets or which otherwise comply with any rule, regulation, “no action” letter or similar guidance promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

In the event that such firm requires the Indenture Trustee to agree to the procedures performed by such firm, the Servicer shall direct the Indenture Trustee in writing to so agree; it being understood and agreed that the Indenture Trustee will deliver such letter of agreement in conclusive reliance upon the direction of the Servicer and the Indenture Trustee makes no independent inquiry or investigation as to, and shall have no obligation or liability in respect of, the sufficiency, validity or correctness of such procedures.

 

Such report will also indicate that the firm is independent of the Servicer within the meaning of the Code of Professional Ethics of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

 

Section 4.11.                                                       Access to Certain Documentation and Information Regarding Receivables.  The Servicer shall provide to the Trustee and the Indenture Trustee access to the Receivable Files in such cases where the Trustee or the Indenture Trustee shall be required by applicable statutes or regulations to review such documentation. Access shall be afforded without charge, but only upon reasonable request and during the normal business hours at the office of the Servicer.  Provided, however, at any time upon written request of the Indenture Trustee, the Servicer will provide (within 10 days of receipt of such request) an electronic data file containing all relevant loan level information on each Receivable necessary for a Successor Servicer to assume servicing responsibilities, including current mailing address and telephone number, current balance, payment schedule and past due status of each Obligor (such request not to be made more frequently than one per month).  Nothing in this Section shall affect the obligation of the Servicer to observe any applicable law prohibiting disclosure of information regarding the Obligors, and the failure of the Servicer to provide access to information as a result of such obligation shall not constitute a breach of this Section.

 

Section 4.12.                                                       Servicer Expenses.  The Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its activities hereunder, including fees and disbursements of independent accountants, taxes imposed on the Servicer and expenses incurred in connection with distributions and reports to Certificateholders and the Noteholders.

 

Section 4.13.                                                       Appointment of Subservicer.  The Servicer may at any time appoint a subservicer to perform all or any portion of its obligations as Servicer hereunder; provided, however, that the Rating Agency Condition shall have been satisfied in connection therewith

 

11



 

(other than with respect to the appointment of CNHCA, as subservicer, with respect to the Receivables); and provided further, that the Servicer shall remain obligated and be liable to the Issuing Entity, the Trustee, the Indenture Trustee, the Certificateholders and the Noteholders for the servicing and administering of the Receivables in accordance with the provisions hereof without diminution of such obligation and liability by virtue of the appointment of such subservicer and to the same extent and under the same terms and conditions as if the Servicer alone were servicing and administering the Receivables. The fees and expenses of any subservicer shall be as agreed between the Servicer and such subservicer from time to time and none of the Issuing Entity, the Trustee, the Indenture Trustee, the Certificateholders or the Noteholders shall have any responsibility therefor.

 

Section 4.14.                                                       Substitution of Financed Equipment.  Notwithstanding anything herein or in the Basic Documents to the contrary, in accordance with the Servicing Procedures, the Financed Equipment relating to a Receivable may be replaced with substitute equipment, of equal or greater value (in the Servicer’s reasonable determination) than the original related Financed Equipment (“Substitute Equipment”); provided, however, the only conditions to such a substitution (in addition to its being in accordance with the Servicing Procedures) shall be the perfection of the first priority security interest in the related Substitute Equipment in favor of CNHCA, and a first priority perfected security interest of the Indenture Trustee in all of CNHCA’s right, title and interest in its security interest in the Substitute Equipment.  Following such substitution, the Substitute Equipment shall be considered the Financed Equipment related to such Receivable for all purposes hereunder and under the Basic Documents, and (i) the Issuing Entity, the Seller and the Indenture Trustee shall sell, transfer, assign, set over and otherwise convey to CNHCA (or its Affiliate designated by it), without recourse, representation or warranty, all of the Issuing Entity’s, the Seller’s and the Indenture Trustee’s right, title and interest in, to and under such original Financed Equipment, and all security and documents relating thereto, and (ii) the Issuing Entity, the Seller, and the Indenture Trustee shall be deemed to have released any security interest and any other claim in such original Financed Equipment (and all security and documents relating thereto) hereunder and under the other Basic Documents, without any further act or deed, and such original Financed Equipment (and all security and documents relating thereto) will be free of the Grant contained in the Indenture.

(e)                                  (i) In the event the Servicer’s Certificate shows that, as of any Determination Date, there are amounts on deposit in the Collection Account which do not constitute part of the Total Distribution Amount and to which the Depositor is entitled hereunder, the Servicer shall direct the Indenture Trustee to forthwith pay such amount to or upon its written order.

(e)                                  No Violation.  The consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the fulfillment of the terms hereof do not conflict with, result in any breach of any of the terms and provisions of, or constitute (with or without notice or lapse of time) a default under, the certificate of formation, limited liability company agreement or by-laws of the Seller, or any indenture, agreement or other instrument to which the Seller is a party or by which

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Seller shall not sell the Certificates except to an entity (a) that has provided an opinion of counsel to the effect that such sale will not cause the Trust to be treated as a “publicly traded partnership” under the Code and (b) that either (i) is not an Affiliate of the Seller or (ii) is an Affiliate of the Seller that (A) is a subsidiary of CNHCA or NH Credit, the certificate of formation and limited liability company agreement of which contains restrictions substantially similar to the restrictions contained in the certificate of formation and limited liability company agreement of the Seller and (B) has provided an Opinion of Counsel regarding substantive consolidation of such Affiliate with CNHCA or NH Credit in the event of a bankruptcy filing by CNHCA or NH Credit, as applicable, which is substantially similar to the Opinion of Counsel provided by Seller on the Closing Date, and which may be subject to the same assumptions and qualifications as that opinion.

Section 8.1.                                                              Servicer Default.  If any one of the following events (a “Servicer Default”) shall occur and be continuing:

 

(a)                                 any failure by the Servicer to deliver to the Indenture Trustee for deposit in any of the Trust Accounts or the Certificate Distribution Account any required payment or to direct the Indenture Trustee or the Trustee to make any required distributions therefrom, which failure continues unremedied for three Business Days after written notice of such failure is received by the Servicer from the Trustee or the Indenture Trustee or after discovery of such failure by an officer of the Servicer;

 

(b)                                 any failure by the Servicer or the Seller, as the case may be, duly to observe or to perform in any material respect any other covenants or agreements (other than as set forth in clause (a)) of the Servicer or the Seller (as the case may be) set forth in this Agreement or any other Basic Document, which failure shall: (i) materially and adversely affect the rights of Certificateholders or Noteholders and (ii) continue unremedied for a period of 60 days after the date on which written notice of such failure, requiring the same to be remedied, shall have been given: (A) to the Servicer or the Seller (as the case may be) by the Trustee or the Indenture Trustee or (B) to the Servicer or the Seller (as the case may be) and to the Trustee and the Indenture Trustee, by the Noteholders or Certificateholders, as applicable, evidencing not less than 25% of the Outstanding Amount of the Notes or 25% of the beneficial interest in the Issuing Entity;

 

(c)                                  an Insolvency Event occurs with respect to the Servicer; or

 

(d)                                 [Reserved];

 

then, and in each and every case, so long as the Servicer Default shall not have been remedied, either the Indenture Trustee, or the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than 25% of the Outstanding Amount of the Notes, by notice then given in writing to the Servicer (and to the Indenture Trustee and the Trustee if given by the Noteholders), may terminate all the rights and obligations (other than the obligations set forth in Section 7.2) of the Servicer under this Agreement.  On or after the receipt by the Servicer of such written notice, all authority and power of the Servicer under this Agreement, whether with respect to the Notes, the Certificates, the Receivables or otherwise, shall, without further action, pass to and be vested in the Indenture Trustee or such Successor Servicer as may be appointed under Section 8.2; and, without limitation, the Indenture Trustee and the Trustee are hereby authorized and empowered to execute and deliver, on behalf of the predecessor Servicer, as attorney-in-fact or otherwise, any and all documents and other instruments, and to do or accomplish all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect the termination of the Servicer, whether to complete the transfer and endorsement of the Receivables and related documents, or otherwise.  The predecessor Servicer shall cooperate with the Successor Servicer, the Indenture Trustee and the Trustee in effecting the termination of the responsibilities and rights of the predecessor Servicer under this Agreement, including the transfer to the Successor Servicer for administration by it of: (i) all cash amounts that shall at the time be held by the predecessor Servicer for deposit, or shall

 

29



 

thereafter be received by it with respect to a Receivable and (ii) all Receivable Files. All reasonable costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred in connection with such transfer, including the costs of transferring the Receivable Files to the Successor Servicer and amending this Agreement to reflect its succession as Servicer, shall be paid by the predecessor Servicer upon presentation of reasonable documentation of such costs and expenses.  Upon receipt of written notice of the occurrence of a Servicer Default, the Trustee shall give written notice thereof to the Rating Agencies and/or the Seller pursuant to Section 10.18.

 

Section 8.2.                                                              Appointment of Successor Servicer.  (a)  Upon the Servicer’s receipt of notice of termination, pursuant to Section 8.1, or the Servicer’s resignation in accordance with this Agreement, the predecessor Servicer shall continue to perform its functions as Servicer under this Agreement, in the case of termination, only until the date specified in such termination notice or, if no such date is specified in a notice of termination, until receipt of such notice and, in the case of resignation, until the earlier of: (x) the date 60 days from the delivery to the Trustee and the Indenture Trustee of written notice of such resignation (or written confirmation of such notice) in accordance with this Agreement and (y) the date upon which the predecessor Servicer shall become unable to act as Servicer, as specified in the notice of resignation and accompanying Opinion of Counsel. In the event of the Servicer’s termination hereunder, the Issuing Entity shall appoint a Successor Servicer acceptable to the Indenture Trustee, and the Successor Servicer shall accept its appointment by a written assumption in form acceptable to the Indenture Trustee.  In the event that a Successor Servicer has not been appointed at the time when the predecessor Servicer has ceased to act as Servicer in accordance with this Section, the Indenture Trustee without further action shall automatically be appointed the Successor Servicer and shall be entitled to the Servicing Fee.  Notwithstanding the above, the Indenture Trustee shall, if it shall be unable so to act, appoint or petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint any established institution, having a net worth of not less than $50,000,000 and whose regular business shall include the servicing of equipment receivables, as the successor to the Servicer under this Agreement.

 

(b)                                 Upon appointment, the Successor Servicer (including the Indenture Trustee acting as Successor Servicer) shall be the successor in all respects to the predecessor Servicer (except with respect to responsibilities and obligations of the predecessor Servicer set forth in Section 7.2) and shall be subject to all the responsibilities, duties and liabilities arising thereafter relating thereto placed on the predecessor Servicer and shall be entitled to the Servicing Fee and all the rights granted to the predecessor Servicer by this Agreement.  None of the Indenture Trustee or any other Successor Servicer shall be deemed to be liable for or in breach of any obligations hereunder due to any act or omission of a predecessor Servicer, including but not limited to failure of such predecessor Servicer to timely deliver to the Indenture Trustee any required information pertaining to the Receivables, any funds required to be deposited with the Indenture Trustee, or any breach of duty of such predecessor Servicer to cooperate with a transfer of servicing as required hereunder.  Any Successor Servicer shall from time to time provide to NH Credit such information as NH Credit shall reasonably request with respect to the Receivables and collections thereon.

 

(c)                                  Subject to the Indenture Trustee’s right to appoint a Successor Servicer pursuant to the last sentence of clause (a) after the Indenture Trustee has become Servicer, the

 

30



 

Servicer may not resign unless it is prohibited from serving as such by law as evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel to such effect delivered to the Indenture Trustee and the Trustee.

 

(d)                                 Notwithstanding anything else herein to the contrary, in no event shall the Indenture Trustee be liable for any transition expenses, servicing fee or for any differential in the amount of the Servicing Fee paid hereunder and the amount necessary to induce any Successor Servicer to act as Successor Servicer under this Agreement and the transactions set forth or provided for herein or be liable for or be required to make any servicer advances.

 

Section 8.3.                                                              Notification to Noteholders and Certificateholders.  Upon any termination of, or appointment of a successor to, the Servicer pursuant to this Article VIII, the Trustee shall give prompt written notice thereof to the Certificateholders and the Indenture Trustee shall give prompt written notice thereof to the Noteholders and, subject to Section 10.18, the Rating Agencies.

 

Section 8.4.                                                              Waiver of Past Defaults.  The Noteholders of Notes evidencing not less than a majority of the Note Balance (or the Holders of Certificates evidencing not less than 50% of the beneficial interest in the Issuing Entity, in the case of any default that does not materially and adversely affect the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders) may, on behalf of all the Noteholders and Certificateholders, waive in writing any default by the Servicer in the performance of its obligations hereunder and its consequences, except a default in making any required deposits to or payments from any of the Trust Accounts in accordance with this Agreement.  Upon any such waiver of a past default, such default shall cease to exist, and any Servicer Default 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 default or impair any right consequent thereto.

 

ARTICLE IX

Section 9.1.                                                              Optional Purchase of All Receivables.  (a)  As of the first day of any Collection Period immediately preceding a Payment Date as of which the Pool Balance is 10% or less of the Initial Pool Balance, CNHCA shall have the option (but no obligation) to purchase all of the Trust Estate, other than the Trust Accounts.  To exercise such option, CNHCA shall deposit, pursuant to Section 5.5, in the Collection Account an amount equal to the aggregate Purchase Amount for the Receivables plus the value of any other property held by the Trust, such value to be as reasonably determined by CNHCA, and CNHCA shall succeed to all interests in, to and under the Trust Estate, other than the Trust Accounts; provided that CNHCA shall not exercise such option unless the amount so deposited, together with funds on deposit in the Trust Accounts, would be sufficient to pay the Redemption Price pursuant to Section 10.1(a) of the Indenture.

 

(b)                                 Upon any sale of the assets of the Trust, the Servicer shall instruct the Indenture Trustee to deposit the proceeds from such sale after all payments and reserves therefrom have been made (the “Sale Proceeds”) in the Collection Account.  On the Payment Date, or, if such proceeds are not so deposited on a Payment Date, on the first Payment Date following the date on which the Sale Proceeds are deposited in the Collection Account, the

 

31



 

Servicer shall instruct the Indenture Trustee to make the following payments and deposits (after the application on such Payment Date of the Total Distribution Amount and funds on deposit in the Spread Account pursuant to Sections 5.6 and 5.7) from the Sale Proceeds and any funds remaining on deposit in the Spread Account (including the proceeds of any sale of investments therein as described in the following sentence):

Any investments on deposit in the Spread Account that will not mature on or before such Payment Date shall be sold by the Indenture Trustee at such time as will result in the Indenture Trustee receiving the proceeds from such sale not later than the Transfer Date preceding such Payment Date.

 

(c)                                  As described in Article IX of the Trust Agreement, once CNHCA has made its determination to make the purchase described under Section 9.1(a) (the “Clean-Up Call”), the Servicer shall send notice of the anticipated dissolution of the Trust to the Trustee as soon as practicable after the Servicer has received notice of the Clean-Up Call.

 

(d)                                 Following the satisfaction and discharge of the Indenture and the payment in full of the principal of and interest on the Notes, the Certificateholders will succeed to the rights of the Noteholders hereunder and the Trustee will succeed to the rights of, and assume the obligations of, the Indenture Trustee pursuant to this Agreement.

(2)                                 any failure by Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas to deliver any Servicing Criteria assessment, information, report, certification, accountants’ letter or other material when and as required under Sections 10.15 and 10.16;

the heading “Depositor” in the base prospectus contained in the Preliminary Prospectus, the Prospectus or necessary to make the statements under the heading “Depositor” in the base prospectus contained in the Preliminary Prospectus or the Prospectus, in the light of the circumstances in which they were made, not misleading, to the extent that such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission relates to information set forth under the heading “Depositor” in the base prospectus contained in the Preliminary Prospectus or the Prospectus.

 

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, in no event shall the Seller be liable for special, indirect or consequential damages of any kind whatsoever, including but not limited to lost profits, even if the Seller has been advised of the likelihood of such loss or damage and regardless of the form of action.
