28



 

Required Spread Account Amount, the Issuer shall withdraw an amount equal to such excess from the Spread Account and distribute such amount to the Transferor.  On the date on which the Class C Note Principal Balance has been paid in full, after making any payments to the Noteholders required pursuant to Sections 4.11(a), (b), (c) and (d), the Issuer shall withdraw from the Spread Account all amounts then remaining in the Spread Account and pay such amounts to the holders of the Transferor Interest.

29



 

Principal Receivables in the Trust (and the principal amount on deposit in the Excess Funding Account, if any) remains constant at the level on such date of determination, (3) no Early Amortization Event with respect to any Series will subsequently occur and (4) no additional Series (other than any Series being issued on such date of determination) will be subsequently issued.  Any notice by Issuer modifying the commencement of the Controlled Accumulation Period pursuant to this Section 4.13 shall specify (i) the Controlled Accumulation Period Length, (ii) the commencement date of the Controlled Accumulation Period and (iii) the Controlled Accumulation Amount with respect to each Monthly Period during the Controlled Accumulation Period.

 

SECTION 4.14.  Determination of LIBOR.

 

(a)                                  On each LIBOR Determination Date in respect of an Interest Period, the Indenture Trustee shall determine LIBOR on the basis of the rate per annum displayed in the Bloomberg Financial Markets system as the composite offered rate for London interbank deposits for a period of the Designated Maturity, as of 11:00 a.m., London time, on that date.  If that rate does not appear on that display page, LIBOR for that Interest Period will be the rate per annum shown on page 3750 of the Bridge Telerate Services Report screen or any successor page as the composite offered rate for London interbank deposits for a one-month period, as shown under the heading “USD” as of 11:00 a.m., London time, on the LIBOR Determination Date.  If no rate is shown as described in the preceding two sentences, LIBOR for that Interest Period will be the rate per annum based on the rates at which Dollar deposits for a period of the Designated Maturity are displayed on page “LIBOR” of the Reuters Monitor Money Rates Service or such other page as may replace the LIBOR page on that service for the purpose of displaying London interbank offered rates of major banks as of 11:00 a.m., London time, on the LIBOR Determination Date; provided that if at least two rates appear on that page, the rate will be the arithmetic mean of the displayed rates and if fewer than two rates are displayed, or if no rate is relevant, the rate for that Interest Period shall be determined on the basis of the rates at which deposits in United States dollars are offered by the Reference Banks at approximately 11:00 a.m., London time, on that day to prime banks in the London interbank market for period of the Designated Maturity.  The Indenture Trustee shall request the principal London office of each of the Reference Banks to provide a quotation of its rate.  If at least two (2) such quotations are provided, the rate for that Interest Period shall be the arithmetic mean of the quotations.  If fewer than two (2) quotations are provided as requested, the rate for that Interest Period will be the arithmetic mean of the rates quoted by major banks in New York City, selected by the Servicer, at approximately 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on that day for loans in United States dollars to leading European banks for a period of the Designated Maturity.

 

(b)                                 The Class A Note Interest Rate, Class B Note Interest Rate and Class C Note Interest Rate applicable to the then current and the immediately preceding Interest Periods may be obtained by telephoning the Indenture Trustee at its corporate trust office at (800) 735-7777 or such other telephone number as shall be designated by the Indenture Trustee for such purpose by prior written notice by the Indenture Trustee to each Series 2004-1 Noteholder from time to time.

ARTICLE IX
FASIT MATTERS

 

SECTION 9.1.   FASIT Administration.  (a)  FASIT Matters.  An election has been made to treat the Trust Estate as a FASIT known as the RFS FASIT.  December 30, 2002 was designated as the “Startup Day” of the RFS FASIT within the meaning of section 860L(d)(1) of the Code.  The Ownership Interest was designated as the single class of “ownership interest” (within the meaning of section 860L(b)(2) of the Code) in the RFS FASIT.  Notwithstanding any provision of the Indenture or this Indenture Supplement to the contrary, each class of Series 2004-1 Regular Interests shall mature on or before December 1, 2020.

 

(b)                                 Series 2004-1 Regular Interests.  Each Class of Notes is hereby designated a separate class of “regular interests” in the RFS FASIT within the meaning of section 860L(b)(1)(A) of the Code and each Note is hereby designated a separate “regular interest” within such Class.  Each of the Class A Notes is hereby designated a “Class A Regular Interest,”

 

37



 

each of the Class B Notes is hereby designated a “Class B Regular Interest” and each of the Class C Notes is hereby designated a “Class C Regular Interest” (the Class A Regular Interests, the Class B Regular Interests and the Class C Regular Interests being referred to collectively as the “Series 2004-1 Regular Interests”).  The Series 2004-1 Regular Interest shall bear interest at a rate equal to the rate of interest on the related Class A Note, Class B Note or Class C Note, as applicable (such related interest, a “Related Interest”).  The rate of interest on each Related Interest is intended to qualify as a qualifying variable rate under section 860L(b)(1)(A)(ii) of the Code.  Interest shall be paid on each Class of Series 2004-1 Regular Interest at the same times as Interest is paid on the Class A Notes, Class B Notes and Class C Notes (which Interest shall be allocated among the Series 2004-1 Regular Interests in proportion to the amount of Interest owning on the respective Related Interests if there is more than one class of such Series 2004-1 Regular Interests and Interest with respect to each class is not paid in full).  The principal amount of each Series 2004-1 Regular Interest shall equal the respective amount of the Class A Note Principal Balance, Class B Note Principal Balance or Class C Note Principal Balance, as applicable, with respect to the Related Interest for such Series 2004-1 Regular Interest.

 

(c)                                  Payment of Principal on Class A Regular Interests.  On each Payment Date, beginning with the Payment Date in the month following the month in which the Controlled Accumulation Period or, if earlier, the Early Amortization Period, begins, the principal amount of each Class A Regular Interest related to a Class A Note shall be reduced by such Class A Note’s pro rata share of an amount equal to the least of (i) the Available Principal Collections on deposit in the Principal Account with respect to such Payment Date, (ii) for each Payment Date with respect to the Controlled Accumulation Period, the Controlled Deposit Amount for such Payment Date, (iii) the Collateral Amount (after taking into account any adjustments to be made on such Payment Date pursuant to Sections 4.6 and 4.7) prior to any deposit into the Principal Accumulation Account on such Payment Date, and (iv) the Note Principal Balance, minus any amount already on deposit in the Principal Accumulation Account on such Payment Date.

 

(d)                                 Payment of Principal on Class B Regular Interests.  On each Payment Date, beginning with the Payment Date in the month following the month in which the Controlled Accumulation Period or, if earlier, the Early Amortization Period, begins, the principal amount of each Class B Regular Interest related to a Class B Note shall be reduced by such Class B Note’s pro rata share of an amount equal to the least of (i) the Available Principal Collections on deposit in the Principal Account with respect to such Payment Date, (ii) for each Payment Date with respect to the Controlled Accumulation Period, the Controlled Deposit Amount for such Payment Date, (iii) the Collateral Amount (after taking into account any adjustments to be made on such Payment Date pursuant to Sections 4.6 and 4.7) prior to any deposit into the Principal Accumulation Account on such Payment Date, and (iv) the Note Principal Balance, minus any amount already on deposit in the Principal Accumulation Account on such Payment Date.

 

(e)                                  Payment of Principal on Class C Regular Interests. On each Payment Date, beginning with the Payment Date in the month following the month in which the Controlled Accumulation Period or, if earlier, the Early Amortization Period, begins, the principal amount of each Class C Regular Interest related to a Class C Note shall be reduced by such Class C Note’s pro rata share of an amount equal to the least of (i) the Available Principal Collections on deposit in the Principal Account with respect to such Payment Date, (ii) for each Payment Date with respect to the Controlled Accumulation Period, the Controlled Deposit Amount for such

 

38



 

Payment Date, (iii) the Collateral Amount (after taking into account any adjustments to be made on such Payment Date pursuant to Sections 4.6 and 4.7) prior to any deposit into the Principal Accumulation Account on such Payment Date, and (iv) the Note Principal Balance, minus any amount already on deposit in the Principal Accumulation Account on such Payment Date.

 

(f)                                    The Issuer hereby agrees to take such further actions as may be required to effectuate this Article IX and the intent that the RFS FASIT be treated as a FASIT.

(a)           In addition to the representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Indenture, the Issuer hereby represents, warrants and covenants to the Indenture Trustee as follows as of the Closing Date:

 

(1)           The Indenture creates a valid and continuing security interest (as defined in the applicable UCC) in the Net Swap Receipts in favor of the Indenture Trustee, which security interest is prior to all other Liens, and is enforceable as such against creditors of and purchasers from Issuer.

 

(2)           The Net Swap Receipts constitute “general intangibles” within the meaning of the applicable UCC.

 

(3)           Issuer owns and has good and marketable title to the Net Swap Receipts free and clear of any Lien, claim or encumbrance of any Person.

(5)           Issuer (or the Administrator on behalf of the Issuer) has caused the filing of all appropriate financing statements in the proper filing office in the appropriate jurisdictions under applicable law in order to perfect the security interest granted to the Indenture Trustee under the Indenture in the Net Swap Receipts.

(b)           Indenture Trustee covenants that it shall not, without satisfying the Rating Agency Condition, waive a breach of any representation or warranty set forth in this Schedule I.

 

(c)           The Issuer covenants that in order to evidence the interests of Issuer and Indenture Trustee under the Indenture, Issuer shall take such action, or execute and deliver such instruments as may be necessary or advisable (including, without limitation, such actions as are requested by Indenture Trustee) to maintain and perfect, as a first priority interest, Indenture Trustee’s security interest in the Net Swap Receipts.
