SALE AND CONVEYANCE

Section 2.1    Sale.

(a) On each date a Loan is purchased (each “Purchase Date”), the Seller will sell, transfer, assign and set over and otherwise convey to the Buyer and the Buyer will purchase from the Seller, without recourse, all right, title and interest of the Seller in, to and under the following property, whether now existing or hereafter created or acquired (all of the property described in this Section 2.1(a) being collectively referred to herein as the “Transferred Collateral”):

(i) the Loans identified on the applicable Loan List delivered by the Seller to the Buyer on or





before the requested Purchase Date, together with all monies due or to become due in payment of such Loans on and after such Purchase Date;

(ii)    the Related Documents related to such Loans;

Furthermore, it is not intended that such conveyance be deemed a pledge of the Transferred Loans by the Seller to the Buyer to secure a debt or other obligation of the Seller.

UCC in all of the Seller's right, title and interest in and to the Transferred Collateral, now existing and hereafter created, to secure a loan in an amount equal to the aggregate Purchase Price and each of the Seller's other payment obligations under this Agreement.

(e) Upon each contribution or sale of one or more Transferred Loans from the Seller to the Buyer, the Seller shall Deliver such Transferred Loan to the Buyer, who hereby directs that such Transferred Loan be Delivered to the Collateral Agent (or the Custodian on its behalf, as applicable) as set forth in the Credit Agreement; provided, that, notwithstanding the foregoing, the Related Documents and Loan Checklist may be delivered within ten (10) Business Days of the contribution or acquisition.

Section 2.2    Assignments, Etc.

(a) The Seller shall, on or prior to any Purchase Date with respect to the Transferred Loans, execute and deliver to the Buyer a written assignment from Seller to the Buyer substantially in the form of Exhibit A hereto. From and after such Purchase Date, such Loans and related interests and property shall be deemed to be part of the Transferred Loans hereunder.






(b) Covenants of the Seller In Connection With Additions. On or before any Purchase Date with respect to any Transferred Loans to be acquired by the Buyer, the Seller shall:

(i) note in its files that such Transferred Loans have been sold to the Buyer and deliver to the Buyer a list of such Transferred Loans, identified by account number, which computer file or microfiche list shall be as of such date incorporated into and made a part of this Agreement; and

(ii) ensure that all financing statements or other similar instruments or documents necessary under the UCC (or any comparable law) of all appropriate jurisdictions to perfect Buyer's ownership interest in the Transferred Loans have been duly filed.

ARTICLE III
PURCHASE PRICE AND PAYMENT; MONTHLY REPORT Section 3.1    Purchase Price.
The purchase price for each Transferred Loan sold to the Buyer by the Seller under this Agreement (the “Purchase Price”) shall be the fair market value for such Transferred Loan as determined from time to time by the Seller and the Buyer.

Section 3.2    Payment of Purchase Price.

(a) The Purchase Price shall be paid by the Buyer on each related Purchase Date in cash or, at the option of the Seller, if the Buyer does not have sufficient cash to pay the full amount of the Purchase Price, by means of a capital contribution by the Seller to the Buyer.
(b) All cash payments in respect of the Purchase Price of any Transferred Loan sold hereunder shall be made not later than 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the date specified therefor in lawful money of the United States in same day funds by depositing such amounts in the bank account designated in writing by the Seller to the Buyer.

ARTICLE IV REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

Section 4.1    Seller's Representations and Warranties.

The Seller hereby represents and warrants to the Buyer, as of the Closing Date and each
Purchase Date, that:

(a) Organization and Good Standing. The Seller is a corporation duly organized and validly existing in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its formation and has full power, authority and legal right to own its properties and conduct its business as such properties are presently owned and as such business is presently conducted, except where the failure to be in good standing or have such power, authority or right would not have a Material Adverse Effect.

(b) Due Qualification. The Seller is duly qualified to do business and is in good standing as a foreign corporation and has obtained all necessary licenses and approvals as required under the laws of all jurisdictions in which the ownership or lease of its property and or the conduct of its business requires such qualification, standing, license or approval, except to the extent that the failure to so qualify, maintain such standing or be so licensed or approved would not have a Material Adverse Effect.






(c) Due Authorization. The execution and delivery of and performance under this Agreement and each other document or instrument to be delivered by the Seller hereunder (collectively, the “Sale Documents”), and the consummation of the transactions provided for herein and therein have been duly authorized by the Seller by all necessary corporate action on the part of the Seller.

(d) No Conflict. The execution and delivery of this Agreement and each of the Sale Documents, the performance of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby and the fulfillment of the terms hereof and thereof, will not conflict with, result in any breach of any of the material terms and provisions of, or constitute (with or without notice or lapse of time or both) a default under, any material indenture, Loan, agreement, mortgage, deed of trust, or other instrument to which the Seller is a party or by which it or any of its property is bound, except where such conflict, contravention, breach, violation or default would not have a Material Adverse Effect.

(e) No Proceedings. There are no proceedings or investigations pending or, to the best knowledge of the Seller, threatened against the Seller, before any Governmental Authority (i) asserting the invalidity of this Agreement or any of the Sale Documents, (ii) seeking to prevent the consummation of any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or any of the Sale Documents, or (iii) seeking any determination or ruling which would, if adversely
determined, materially and adversely affect the performance by the Seller of its obligations under this Agreement or any of the Sale Documents.

(f) All Consents Required. All material approvals, authorizations, consents, orders or other actions of any Person or of any Governmental Authority required in connection with the execution, delivery and performance by the Seller of this Agreement and the Sale Documents have been obtained.

(g)    Solvency.    The transactions contemplated under this Agreement and the Sale
Documents do not and will not render the Seller not Solvent.

(h) Agreements Enforceable. This Agreement and each other Sale Document constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of the Seller, enforceable against the Seller in accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws affecting creditors' rights generally or general principles of equity, regardless of whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law.

(i) Quality of Title. Each Transferred Loan is, immediately prior to the sale hereunder to the Buyer, owned by the Seller free and clear of any Lien (other than Permitted Liens), and upon the sale, transfer or assignment hereunder, the Buyer shall acquire title to and ownership of each such Transferred Loan, free and clear of any lien (other than Permitted Liens).

(j) Security Interest. As described in Section 2.1(d) hereof, it is the intention of the parties hereto that the conveyance of the Transferred Collateral by the Seller to the Buyer be, and be construed as, an absolute sale without recourse. If, however, notwithstanding the intention of the parties, such conveyance is determined for any reason not to be an absolute sale, the Seller grants a security interest (as defined in the UCC) to the Buyer in the Transferred Collateral, which is enforceable in accordance with the UCC upon execution and delivery of this Agreement. Upon the filing of UCC-1 financing statements naming the Buyer as purchaser/secured party and the Seller as seller/debtor, the Buyer shall have a first priority perfected security interest in the Transferred Collateral (subject to Permitted Liens). All filings (including, without limitation, such UCC filings) as are necessary in any jurisdiction to perfect the interest of the Buyer in the Transferred Collateral have been made.

(k) Location of Offices. The Seller's jurisdiction of organization, principal place of business and chief executive office and the office where the Seller keeps all its books and records is located at the address of the Seller





referred to in Section 10.3 hereof (or at such other locations as to which the notice and other requirements specified in Section 5.1(g) shall have been satisfied).

(l) Value Given. The cash payments and corresponding increase in the Seller's equity interest in the Buyer received by the Seller in respect of the purchase price of all Transferred Loans conveyed under this Agreement constitutes reasonably equivalent value therefor and the transfer by the Seller thereof to the Buyer was not made for or on account of an antecedent debt owed by the Seller to the Buyer, and such transfer was not and is not voidable or subject to avoidance under any section of the Bankruptcy Code.
(m) Separate Entity. The Seller is operated as an entity with assets and liabilities distinct from those of the Buyer and any Affiliates thereof, and the Seller hereby acknowledges that the Collateral Agent and the Secured Parties under the Credit Agreement are entering into the transactions contemplated by the Credit Agreement in reliance upon the Seller's identity as a separate legal entity from the Buyer and from each such Affiliate of the Buyer.

(n) Eligibility of Loans. As of the Closing Date and each subsequent Purchase Date, each Loan transferred on such date is an Eligible Loan.

(o)    Qualified Purchaser. As of the date hereof and as of each date on which the Credit
Agreement is in full force and effect, the Seller is and will be a Qualified Purchaser.

(p) Notice to Agents and Obligors. The Seller has directed all Obligors (and related paying agents) to pay all Collections directly to the Collection Account.

Neither the Seller nor any Affiliate of the Seller is (i) a country, territory, organization, person or entity named on an Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) list, (ii) a Person that resides or has a place of business in a country or territory named on such lists or which is designated as a “Non-Cooperative Jurisdiction” by the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering, or whose subscription funds are transferred from or through such a jurisdiction; (iii) a “Foreign Shell Bank” within the meaning of the USA PATRIOT Act, i.e., a foreign bank that does not have a physical presence in any country and that is not affiliated with a bank that has a physical presence and an acceptable level of regulation and supervision; or (iv) a person or entity that resides in or is organized under the laws of a jurisdiction designated by the United States Secretary of the Treasury under Sections 311 or 312 of the USA PATRIOT Act as warranting special measures due to money laundering concerns.

(r) Security Interest. This Agreement creates a valid and continuing security interest (as defined in the applicable UCC) in the Transferred Collateral in favor of the Buyer, which security interest is prior to all other Liens (except for Permitted Liens), and is enforceable as such against creditors of and purchasers from the Seller.

(s) Investment Company Act. The Seller is an “investment company” that has elected to be regulated as a “business development company” within the meaning of the Investment Company Act. The Seller conducts its business and other activities in compliance in all material respects with the applicable provisions of the Investment Company Act and any applicable rules, regulations or orders issued by the SEC thereunder.

The representations and warranties set forth in this Section 4.1 shall survive the sale, transfer and assignment of the Transferred Loans to the Buyer. Upon discovery by the Seller or the Buyer of a breach of any of the foregoing representations and warranties, the party discovering such breach shall give prompt written notice thereof to the other immediately upon obtaining knowledge of such breach.

Section 4.2    Representations and Warranties of the Buyer.

The Buyer hereby represents and warrants to the Seller, as of the Closing Date and each





Purchase Date, that:

The Buyer is a Delaware limited liability company duly organized, validly existing, and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its formation, and has full power, authority and legal right to own or lease its properties and conduct its business as such business is presently conducted, except where the failure to be in good standing or have such power, authority or right would not have a Material Adverse Effect.

(b) Due Qualification. The Buyer is duly qualified to do business and is in good standing as a limited liability company, and has obtained or will obtain all necessary licenses and approvals, in each jurisdiction in which the nature of its business requires it to be so qualified, except to the extent the failure to so qualify, maintain such standing or be so licensed or approved would not have a Material Adverse Effect.

(c) Due Authorization. The execution and delivery of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions provided for herein have been duly authorized by the Buyer by all necessary action on the part of the Buyer.

(d) No Conflict. The execution and delivery of this Agreement, the performance by the Buyer of the transactions contemplated hereby and the fulfillment of the terms hereof will not conflict with or result in any breach of any of the terms and provisions of, and will not constitute (with or without notice or lapse of time or both) a default under, the Buyer's limited liability company agreement, unless such conflict, contravention, breach, violation or default would not have a Material Adverse Effect.

(e) No Violation. The execution and delivery of this Agreement, the performance of the transactions contemplated hereby and the fulfillment of the terms hereof will not conflict with or violate, in any material respect, any requirements of laws applicable to the Buyer, except where such conflict or violation would not have a Material Adverse Effect.

(b) Preservation of Corporate Existence. The Seller will preserve and maintain its existence, rights, franchises and privileges in the jurisdiction of its formation, and qualify and remain qualified in good standing in each jurisdiction where the failure to maintain such existence, rights, franchises, privileges and qualification has had, or could reasonably be expected to have, a material adverse effect on its ability to perform its obligations hereunder or under the Sale Documents.

(c) Security Interests. Except for the transfers hereunder, the Seller will not sell, pledge, assign or transfer to any other Person, or grant, create, incur, assume or suffer to exist
any lien on any Transferred Loan, whether now existing or hereafter transferred hereunder, or any interest therein. The Seller will immediately notify the Buyer of the existence of any lien on any Transferred Loan; and the Seller shall defend the right, title and interest of the Buyer and its assignees in, to and under the Transferred Loans, against all claims of third parties, provided, however, that nothing in this Section 5.1(c) shall prevent or be deemed to prohibit the liens created under the Credit Agreement.






(d) Delivery of Collections. Consistent with the Buyer's ownership of the Transferred Loans, in the event the Seller shall receive any Collections in respect of any Transferred Loans after the Purchase Date therefor, the Seller agrees to promptly pay to the Buyer, or an account designated by the Buyer, (but in no event later than one (1) Business Day after receipt) such Collections. Further, on or before the related Purchase Date for any Transferred Loan, the Seller shall instruct all banks or financial institutions to which Collections received from the related Obligor are directed to change the name on all accounts at such banks or financial institutions in which such Collections are deposited (each an “Obligor Account”) to the name of the Buyer, to the extent any such account is in the name of the Seller or any Affiliate of the Seller (other than the Buyer) such that such Obligor Account shall be in the name of the Buyer and shall be a segregated account and the funds deposited therein shall not be commingled with other funds of the Buyer, Seller or any Affiliate thereof.

(e) Change in Payment Instructions to Obligor. The Seller shall not make any change in its instructions to Obligors regarding payments to be made to any Obligor Account, unless (i) such instructions are to deposit such payments to another existing Obligor Account or (ii) the Administrative Agent shall have given its prior written consent to such change.

(f) Nonconsolidation. The Seller shall take all actions required to maintain the Buyer's status as a separate legal entity, including, without limitation, (i) not holding the Buyer out to third parties as an entity other than an entity with assets and liabilities distinct from the Seller and the Seller's other subsidiaries; provided that the assets of the Buyer may be consolidated into the assets of the Seller for tax and accounting purposes and may be included in the publicly-filed financial statements of the Seller; (ii) not holding itself out to be responsible for any indebtedness or other liability of the Buyer or, other than by reason of owning equity interests of the Buyer, for any decisions or actions relating to the Buyer; (iii) taking such other actions as are necessary on its part to ensure that all corporate procedures required by its and the Buyer's respective constituent documents are duly and validly taken; (v) keeping correct and complete records and books of account and minutes; and (vi) not acting in any manner that could foreseeably mislead others with respect to the Buyer's separate identity. In addition to the foregoing, the Seller shall take the following actions:

(i)    The Seller shall maintain corporate records and books of account separate from those of the Buyer.

(ii)    The Seller shall maintain an arm's-length relationship with the Buyer and shall not hold itself out as being liable for any indebtedness of the Buyer.
(iii) The Seller shall keep its assets and its liabilities wholly separate from those of the Buyer; provided that the assets of the Buyer may be consolidated into the assets of the Seller for tax and accounting purposes.

(iv) The Seller shall take or refrain from taking, as applicable, each of the activities specified or assumed in the non-consolidation opinion of Dechert LLP delivered on the Closing Date, upon which the conclusions expressed therein are based.

(g) Location of Seller, Records; Instruments. The Seller (x) shall not change its name or jurisdiction of incorporation, without 30 days' prior written notice to the Buyer and the Administrative Agent and (y) will promptly take all actions required (including, but not limited to, all filings and other acts necessary or advisable under the UCC or other applicable law) of each relevant jurisdiction in order to continue, in accordance with Section 4.1(k), the ownership and security interest of the Buyer in all Loans transferred hereunder.

(h) Further Assurances. It shall promptly upon the reasonable request of the Buyer, the Collateral Agent, or the Administrative Agent, at the Seller's expense, execute and deliver such further instruments and take such further action in order to maintain and protect the Buyer's first priority perfected security interest in the Transferred





Collateral pledged by the Seller hereunder free and clear of any Liens (other than Permitted Liens). At the reasonable request of the Buyer, either Agent or the Required Lenders (through the Administrative Agent), the Seller shall promptly take, at the Seller's expense, such further action in order to establish and protect the rights, interests and remedies created or intended to be created under this Agreement in favor of the Buyer in the Transferred Collateral, including all actions which are necessary to (x) enable Buyer to enforce its rights and remedies under this Agreement and the other Facility Documents, and (y) effectuate the intent and purpose of, and to carry out the terms of, the Facility Documents. Without limiting its obligation to maintain and protect the Buyer's first priority security interest in the Transferred Collateral, the Seller authorizes the Buyer, the Collateral Manager, or the Collateral Agent to file or record financing statements and other filing or recording documents or instruments with respect to the Transferred Collateral in such form and in such offices as appropriate to perfect the security interests of the Buyer under this Agreement, provided, that none of the Buyer, the Collateral Manager, or the Collateral Agent assumes any obligation of the Seller to maintain and protect its security interest hereunder.

Subject to the foregoing, the Seller will, and, upon the reasonable request of the Buyer or either Agent shall, at the Seller's expense, take such other action (including executing and delivering or authorizing for filing any required UCC financing statements) as shall be necessary to create and perfect a valid and enforceable first priority security interest on all Transferred Collateral acquired by the Buyer and will in connection therewith deliver such proof of corporate action, incumbency of officers, opinions of counsel and other documents as the Buyer, either Agent or the Required Lenders (through the Administrative Agent) shall have reasonably requested.

(i) Costs and Expenses. The Seller shall pay all reasonable, documented costs and disbursements in connection with this Agreement and the performance of its obligations hereunder.
(j) Collections. The Seller shall direct all Obligors (and related paying agents) to pay all Collections directly to the Collection Account.

(k) Information. The Seller will cooperate with the Buyer and the Collateral Manager in providing such information documents, records or reports respecting the Transferred Collateral that the Buyer or the Collateral Manager may reasonably request in order to comply with the terms of the Facility Documents.

ARTICLE VI

(b) Upon the Buyer's receipt of the Repurchase Price or a Substitute Loan, as applicable, for a Warranty Loan, the Buyer shall automatically and without further action be deemed to transfer, assign and set-over to the Seller all the right, title and interest of the Buyer in, to and under such Warranty Loan and all monies due or to become due with respect thereto, all proceeds thereof and all rights to security for any such Warranty Loan, and





all proceeds and products of the foregoing, free and clear of any Lien created pursuant to this Agreement or the Credit Agreement, all of the Buyer's right, title and interest in such Warranty Loan.

(c) The Buyer shall, at the sole expense of the Seller, execute such documents and instruments of transfer as may be prepared by the Seller and take such other actions as shall reasonably be requested by the Seller to effect the transfer of such Warranty Loan pursuant to this Section 6.1.

(vii) the Buyer shall notify the Administrative Agent of any amount to be deposited into the Collection Account in connection with any such substitution and shall deliver to the Custodian the Related Documents for any Substitute Loans; and

(viii) the Buyer shall deliver to the Administrative Agent on the date of such substitution a certificate of a Responsible Officer certifying that each of the foregoing is true and correct as of such date;

Upon confirmation of the delivery of a Substitute Loan for each applicable Collateral Loan being substituted for (the date of such confirmation or delivery, the Retransfer Date), each applicable Transferred Loan being substituted for shall be transferred to the Seller and the applicable Substitute Loan(s) shall be transferred to the Buyer.
