Any acquisition of a derivative contract shall be accompanied by (i) an appropriate amendment to this Agreement, (ii) any Opinion of Counsel required by Section 10.01 and (iii) the consent of each Certificateholder to the acquisition of such derivative contract. Such derivative contract shall be executed on behalf of the Trust by the Certificate Paying Agent.

(b) All collections, proceeds and other amounts in respect of the derivative contracts payable by the derivative counterparty shall be distributed to the Certificateholders on the Payment Date following receipt thereof by the Certificate Paying Agent.

 

(c) Any derivative contract that provides for any payment obligation on the part of the Trust must (i) be without recourse to the assets of the Owner Trust Estate, (ii) contain a non-petition covenant provision from the derivative counterparty, (iii) limit payment dates thereunder for payments, if any, to Payment Dates, (iv) contain a provision limiting any cash payments (including termination payments) due to the derivative counterparty on any day under such derivative contract solely to funds available therefor in the Certificate Distribution Account available to make payments to the Certificateholders on such Payment Date, and (v) provide for copies of all notices and correspondence to be provided to the Certificate Paying Agent.

 

(d) Each derivative contract must (i) provide for the direct payment of any amounts by the derivative counterparty thereunder to the Certificate Distribution Account at least one Business Day prior to the related Payment Date, (ii) contain an assignment of all of the Trust’s rights (but none of its obligations) under such derivative contract to the Owner Trustee on behalf of the Certificateholders and shall include an express consent by the derivative counterparty to such assignment, (iii) provide that in the event of the occurrence of an Event of Default, such derivative contract shall terminate upon the direction of the Majority Certificateholder, and (iv) prohibit the derivative counterparty from “setting-off’ or “netting” other obligations of the Trust and its Affiliates against such derivative counterparty’s payment obligations thereunder.

 

(e) The Seller shall determine, in its sole discretion, whether any derivative contract conforms to the requirements of Section 6.11(c) and (d) and shall notify the Certificate Paying Agent and the Securities Administrator of the existence of such derivative contract.
