After an Event of Default of which a Responsible Officer of the Indenture Trustee shall have actual knowledge and during the continuance thereof, sums on deposit in the Collection Account, any Site Acquisition Account, the Liquidated Site Replacement Account and the Reserve Accounts shall remain uninvested unless otherwise directed in writing by the Servicer.  The Obligors hereby irrevocably authorize the Indenture Trustee to apply any income earned from Permitted Investments to the Collection Account, any Site Acquisition Account, the Liquidated Site Replacement Account and the Reserve Accounts in accordance with the priorities set forth in Section 5.01(a) of the Indenture with any such income available on any Payment Date being deemed to be attributable to the immediately preceding Collection Period for such purposes.  The Obligors shall be responsible for payment of any federal, state or local income or other tax applicable to income earned from Permitted Investments.  The Collection Account, any Site Acquisition Account, the Liquidated Site Replacement Account and the Reserve Accounts shall be assigned the federal tax identification number of the Issuer, which number is set forth on the signature page hereof.  Any dividends or other earnings which may accrue on the Collection Account, any Site Acquisition Account, the Liquidated Site Replacement Account or the Reserve Accounts shall be added to the balance in the applicable Account and allocated and/or disbursed in accordance with the terms hereof.  In no event shall the Indenture Trustee be responsible for, or incur any liability with respect to, any investment losses incurred in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.  The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that investments made pursuant to clause (vi) of the definition of Permitted Investments includes mutual funds for which the Indenture Trustee (or any Affiliate of the Indenture Trustee) may serve as investment manager, administrator, shareholder, servicing agent, or custodian or subcustodian, notwithstanding the fact that (i) the Indenture Trustee (or an Affiliate of the Indenture Trustee) receives fees from such funds for services rendered, (ii) the Indenture Trustee charges and collects fees for services rendered pursuant to the Indenture, which fees are separate from the fees received from such funds and (iii) services performed for such funds and pursuant to this Agreement and the Indenture may at times duplicate those provided to such funds by the Indenture Trustee or its Affiliates.
