This Agreement may also be amended from time to time by the Pledgor, the Indenture Trustee and the Securities Intermediary and, if the interests of the Noteholders are materially and adversely affected, with the consent of the Holders of the Notes evidencing at least a majority of the outstanding principal amount of the Controlling Class of Notes, acting together as a single Class, for the purpose of adding any provisions to or changing in any manner or eliminating any of the provisions of this Agreement or of modifying in any manner the rights of the Noteholders or Certificateholders under this Agreement.
No amendment otherwise permitted under this Section 13 may (x) increase or reduce in any manner the amount of, or accelerate or delay the timing of, collections of payments on the Receivables or distributions required to be made for the benefit of any Noteholders or Certificateholders without the consent of all Noteholders and Certificateholders adversely affected thereby, or (y) reduce the percentage of the Notes or Certificates which are required to consent to any such amendment without the consent of the Noteholders and Certificateholders adversely affected thereby; provided, that any amendment referred to in clause (x) or (y) above shall be deemed to not adversely affect any Noteholder if the Rating Agency Condition has been satisfied in respect of such proposed amendment.  No amendment referred to in clause (x) in the immediately preceding sentence shall be permitted unless an Officer’s Certificate shall have been delivered by the Servicer to the Indenture Trustee certifying that such officer reasonably believes that such proposed amendment will not materially and adversely affect the interest of any Noteholder or Certificateholder whose consent was not obtained.
Prior to the execution of any amendment to this Agreement, the Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to receive and rely upon an Opinion of Counsel stating that the execution of such amendment is authorized or permitted by this Agreement. Promptly after the execution of any

such amendment or consent, the Indenture Trustee shall furnish written notification of the substance of such amendment or consent to the Certificateholder and the Administrator and the Administrator shall provide such notification to each of the Rating Agencies.
It shall not be necessary for the consent of the Certificateholders, the Noteholders or the Indenture Trustee pursuant to this Section to approve the particular form of any proposed amendment or consent, but it shall be sufficient if such consent shall approve the substance thereof.  The manner of obtaining such consents and of evidencing the authorization of the execution thereof by the Certificateholders shall be subject to such reasonable requirements as the Indenture Trustee may prescribe.
Section 14.                          Tax Reporting.  All items of income, gain, expense and loss recognized in the Securities Accounts shall be reported to the Internal Revenue Service and all state and local taxing authorities under the name and taxpayer identification number of the Pledgor.
Section 15.                          Compensation.  Pledgor shall pay to the Securities Intermediary from time to time reasonable compensation for its services hereunder.  Pledgor shall reimburse the Securities Intermediary upon request for all reasonable disbursements, expenses and advances incurred or made by it.  Such expenses shall include the reasonable compensation, disbursements and expenses of the Securities Intermediary’s agents and counsel.
Section 16.                          Successors.  The terms of this Agreement shall be binding upon, and shall inure to the benefit of, the parties hereto and their respective corporate successors.
Section 17.                          Notices.  Any notice, request or other communication required or permitted to be given under this Agreement shall be in writing and deemed to have been properly given when delivered in person, or when sent by telecopy or other electronic means and electronic confirmation of error free receipt is received or two (2) days after being sent by certified or registered United States mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, addressed to the party at the address set forth below.
