Section 2.5 Registration; Registration of Transfer and Exchange.

(a) The Indenture Trustee initially shall be the registrar (the “Note Registrar”) for the purpose of registering Notes and transfers of Notes as herein provided. The Note Registrar shall cause to be kept a register (the “Note Register”) in which, subject to such reasonable regulations as it may prescribe, the Note Registrar shall provide for the registration of Notes and the registration of transfers of Notes. Upon any resignation of any Note Registrar, the Issuer shall promptly appoint a successor or, if it elects not to make such an appointment, assume the duties of Note Registrar.

(b) If a Person other than the Indenture Trustee is appointed by the Issuer as Note Registrar, (i) the Issuer shall give the Indenture Trustee prompt written notice of the appointment of such Note Registrar and of the location, or any change in the location, of the Note Register, (ii) the Indenture Trustee shall have the right to inspect the Note Register at all reasonable times and to obtain copies thereof and (iii) the Indenture Trustee shall have the right to rely upon a certificate executed on behalf of the Note Registrar by an Executive Officer thereof as to the names and addresses of the Holders of the Notes and the principal amounts and number of such Notes.

(c) Upon surrender for registration of transfer of any Note at the office or agency of the Issuer to be maintained as provided in Section 3.2, if the requirements of Section 8-401 or 8A-401, as applicable, of the Relevant UCC are met, the Issuer shall execute, and the Indenture Trustee shall authenticate and deliver to the Noteholder making such surrender, in the name of the designated transferee or transferees, one or more new Notes of the same Class in any authorized denomination, of a like aggregate principal amount.

(g) No service charge shall be made to a Holder for any registration of transfer or exchange of Notes, but the Indenture Trustee may require payment by such Holder of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any registration of transfer or exchange of Notes, other than exchanges pursuant to Section 2.3 or Section 9.6 not involving any transfer.

(h) The Issuer shall not be required to make, and the Note Registrar need not register, transfers or exchanges of Notes selected for redemption or Notes with respect to which the due date for any payment will occur within fifteen (15) days.

(i) Each Person who initially acquires a Note (or an interest therein) or to whom a Note (or an interest therein) is transferred will be deemed to have represented and warranted, by its acceptance of the Note (or an interest therein), that either (a) it is not acquiring the Note (or an interest therein) with the plan assets of any (i) “employee benefit plan” (as defined in Section 3(3) of ERISA) subject to the fiduciary requirements of ERISA, (ii) “plan” described in Section 4975(e)(1) of the Code, including individual retirement accounts and Keogh plans, that is subject to the provisions of Section 4975 of the Code, or (iii) employee benefit plan or arrangement not subject to Title I of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code; or (b) the acquisition and holding of the Note (or an interest therein) will not constitute or result in a non-exempt “prohibited transaction” under Section 406 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code or a violation of any substantially similar applicable law.

(j) Any purported transfer of a Note not in accordance with this Section 2.5 shall be null and void and shall not be given effect for any purpose whatsoever.

(k) [Sale, pledge or transfer of a Retained Note may only be made to a Person who is a United States Person (within the meaning of Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code). A Person other than the Depositor acquiring a Retained Note or an interest therein shall be deemed to have made the representations set forth in Section 2.16; and (ii) no sale, pledge, or transfer of a Retained Note shall be made (x) to any one person in an amount less than 100% of the outstanding principal balance of that class of Retained Note or (y) to a Special Pass-Through Entity, in each case, unless (A) an opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee and the Depositor that such sale, pledge, or transfer shall not cause the Issuer to be treated as an association (or publicly traded partnership) taxable as a corporation for federal income tax purposes shall have been delivered to the Indenture Trustee and the Depositor and (B) the Depositor shall have provided prior written approval;

 

7


provided, however, that the restrictions in this Section 2.4(k) shall not continue to apply to such Notes (covered by the opinion described in this clause) in the event counsel satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee and the Depositor has rendered an opinion, with respect to the sale, pledge or transfer by the Depositor, to the effect that the Retained Notes to be sold, pledged or transferred will be characterized as indebtedness for federal income tax purposes. Any attempted transfer in contravention of this Section 2.4(k) will be void ab initio and the purported transferor will continue to be treated as the owner of the Retained Note.

For the purposes of this Section 2.4(k), “Special Pass-Through Entity” means a grantor trust, S corporation, or partnership where more than 50% of the value of a beneficial owner’s interest in such pass through entity is attributable to the pass-through entity’s interest in the Retained Note.]

Section 2.6 Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost or Stolen Notes.

(a) If (i) any mutilated Note is surrendered to the Indenture Trustee, or the Indenture Trustee receives evidence to its satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Note, and (ii) there is delivered to the Indenture Trustee such security or indemnity as may be required by it to hold the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee harmless, then, in the absence of notice to the Issuer, the Note Registrar or the Indenture Trustee that such Note has been acquired by a “protected purchaser” (as defined in the Relevant UCC), and provided that the requirements of Section 8-405 or 8A-405, as applicable, of the Relevant UCC are met, the Issuer shall execute and the Indenture Trustee shall authenticate and deliver, in exchange for or in lieu of any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Note, a replacement Note of the same Class; provided, however, that if any such destroyed, lost or stolen Note, but not a mutilated Note, shall have become or within seven (7) days of the Indenture Trustee’s receipt of evidence to its satisfaction of such destruction, loss or theft shall be due and payable, or shall have been called for redemption in whole pursuant to Section 10.1, instead of issuing a replacement Note of the same Class, the Issuer may pay such destroyed, lost or stolen Note when so due or payable or upon the Redemption Date without surrender thereof. The Indenture Trustee may conclusively rely upon the Administrator with respect to the determination of whether the requirements of Section 8-405 or 8A-405, as applicable, of the Relevant UCC are met. If, after the delivery of such replacement Note or payment of a destroyed, lost or stolen Note pursuant to the proviso to the preceding sentence, a “protected purchaser” (as defined in the Relevant UCC) of the original Note in lieu of which such replacement Note was issued presents for payment such original Note, the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to recover such replacement Note (or such payment) from the Person to whom such replacement Note was delivered or any Person taking such replacement Note from such Person to whom such replacement Note was delivered or any assignee of such Person, except a “protected purchaser” (as defined in the Relevant UCC), and shall be entitled to recover upon the security or indemnity provided therefor to the extent of any loss, damage, cost or expense incurred by the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee in connection therewith.

(b) Upon the issuance of any replacement Note under this Section 2.6, the Issuer may require the payment by the Holder of such Note of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with such issuance and any other reasonable expenses (including the fees and expenses of the Indenture Trustee) related thereto.

 

8


(c) Every replacement Note issued pursuant to this Section 2.6 in replacement of any mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Note shall constitute an original additional contractual obligation of the Issuer, whether or not the mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Note shall be at any time enforceable by anyone, and shall be entitled to all the benefits of this Indenture equally and proportionately with any and all other Notes duly issued hereunder.

(d) The provisions of this Section 2.6 are exclusive and shall preclude (to the extent lawful) all other rights and remedies with respect to the replacement or payment of mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Notes.

Section 2.7 Persons Deemed Owners. Prior to due presentation of a Note for registration of transfer, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and any agent of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee may, subject to Section 2.6, treat the Person in whose name such Note is registered in the Note Register (as of the day of determination) as the owner of such Note for the purpose of receiving payments of principal of and interest on such Note and for all other purposes whatsoever, whether or not such Note shall be overdue, and none of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or any agent of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee shall be affected by any notice to the contrary.

Whenever a notice or other communication to the Noteholders is required under this Indenture, unless and until Definitive Notes shall have been issued to such Note Owners pursuant to Section 2.13, the Indenture Trustee shall give all such notices and communications specified herein to be given to Holders of the Notes to the Clearing Agency, and shall have no obligation to such Note Owners.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, agrees to provide to the Indenture Trustee, any Paying Agent or the Issuer, as applicable, the Noteholder Tax Identification Information and, to the extent FATCA Withholding Tax is applicable, the Noteholder FATCA Information.]

The Indenture Trustee shall also adopt and employ, at the expense and direction of the Issuer, any other reasonable means of notification of such repayment (including mailing notice of such repayment to Holders whose Notes have been called but have not been surrendered for redemption in whole pursuant to Section 10.1 or whose right to or interest in monies due and payable but not claimed is determinable from the records of the Indenture Trustee or of any Paying Agent at the last address of record for each such Holder).

21


Section 3.7 Performance of Obligations; Servicing of Receivables.

(a) The Issuer shall not take any action and shall use its best efforts not to permit any action to be taken by others that would release any Person from any of such Person’s material covenants or obligations under any instrument or agreement included in the Trust Estate or that would result in the amendment, hypothecation, subordination, termination or discharge of, or impair the validity or effectiveness of, any such instrument or agreement, except as expressly provided in this Indenture and the other Transaction Documents.

(b) The Issuer may contract with other Persons to assist it in performing its duties under this Indenture, and any performance of such duties by a Person identified to the Indenture Trustee in an Issuer’s Certificate shall be deemed to be action taken by the Issuer. Initially, the Issuer has contracted with the Servicer and the Administrator to assist the Issuer in performing its duties under this Indenture.

(c) The Issuer shall punctually perform and observe all of its obligations and agreements contained in this Indenture, the other Transaction Documents and the instruments and agreements included in the Trust Estate, including filing or causing to be filed all financing statements and continuation statements required to be filed under the Relevant UCC by the terms of this Indenture and the Sale and Servicing Agreement in accordance with and within the time periods provided for herein and therein.

(d) If the Issuer shall have knowledge of the occurrence of an Event of Servicing Termination, the Issuer shall promptly notify the Depositor, the Indenture Trustee, the Rating Agencies and the Administrator in writing of such event and shall specify in such notice the action, if any, the Issuer is taking in respect of such default. If an Event of Servicing Termination shall arise from the failure of the Servicer to perform any of its duties or obligations under the Sale and Servicing Agreement with respect to the Receivables, the Issuer shall take all reasonable steps available to it to remedy such failure.

(e) As promptly as possible after the giving of notice of termination to the Servicer of the Servicer’s rights and powers pursuant to Section 8.1 of the Sale and Servicing Agreement, the Issuer [shall][may] (subject to the rights of the Indenture Trustee to direct such appointment pursuant to Section 8.2 of the Sale and Servicing Agreement) appoint [the Backup Servicer as] a successor servicer (the “Successor Servicer”), and such Successor Servicer shall accept its appointment by a written assumption in a form acceptable to the Indenture Trustee. In the event that a Successor Servicer has not been appointed or has not accepted its appointment at the time when the Servicer ceases to act as Servicer, the Indenture Trustee, without further action, shall be the successor to the Servicer in all respects in accordance with Section 8.2 of the Sale and Servicing Agreement. The Indenture Trustee may resign as the Servicer by giving written notice of such resignation to the Issuer and in such event shall be released from such duties and obligations, such release not to be effective until the date a new servicer enters into a servicing agreement with the Issuer as provided below. Upon delivery of any such notice to the Issuer, the Issuer shall obtain a new servicer as the Successor Servicer under the Sale and Servicing Agreement. Any Successor Servicer (other than the Indenture Trustee [and the Backup Servicer,]) shall (i) be an established financial institution having a net worth of not less than $50,000,000 and whose regular business includes the servicing of motor vehicle installment sale contracts and (ii) enter into a servicing agreement with the Issuer having substantially the same provisions as the provisions of the Sale and Servicing Agreement applicable to the Servicer. If, within thirty (30) days after the delivery of the notice referred to above, the Issuer shall not have obtained such a new servicer, the Indenture Trustee may appoint, or may petition a court of

 

22


competent jurisdiction to appoint, a Successor Servicer. In connection with any such appointment, the Indenture Trustee may make such arrangements for the compensation of such successor as it and such successor shall agree, subject to the limitations set forth below and in the Sale and Servicing Agreement, and, in accordance with Section 8.2 of the Sale and Servicing Agreement, the Issuer shall enter into an agreement with such successor for the servicing of the Receivables (such agreement to be in form and substance satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee). If the Indenture Trustee shall succeed to the Servicer’s duties as servicer of the Receivables as provided herein, it shall do so in its individual capacity and not in its capacity as Indenture Trustee and, accordingly, the provisions of Article VI shall be inapplicable to the Indenture Trustee in its duties as the successor to the Servicer and the servicing of the Receivables. In case the Indenture Trustee shall become successor to the Servicer under the Sale and Servicing Agreement, the Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to appoint as Servicer any one of its Affiliates; provided, however, that the Indenture Trustee, in its capacity as the Servicer, shall be fully liable for the actions and omissions of such Affiliate in such capacity as Successor Servicer. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Indenture to the contrary, in no event shall the Indenture Trustee be liable for any servicing fee or for any differential in the amount of the servicing fee paid under the Sale and Servicing Agreement and the amount necessary to induce any Successor Servicer to act as Successor Servicer under the Sale and Servicing Agreement.

(f) Upon any termination of the Servicer’s rights and powers pursuant to Section 8.1 of the Sale and Servicing Agreement, the Issuer shall promptly notify the Depositor, the Indenture Trustee, [the Backup Servicer,] the Administrator, [the Swap Counterparty] and the Rating Agencies in writing of such termination. Upon [the Backup Servicer becoming the Servicer or] any appointment of a Successor Servicer by the Issuer, the Issuer shall promptly notify the Depositor, the Indenture Trustee, the Administrator, [the Swap Counterparty] and the Rating Agencies in writing of such appointment, specifying in such notice the name and address of such Successor Servicer.

(g) The Issuer shall not waive timely performance by the Depositor, the Seller or the Servicer of their respective obligations under the Transaction Documents if such waiver would reasonably be expected to materially adversely affect the interests of the Noteholders.

Section 3.8 Negative Covenants.

(a) If any Notes are Outstanding, the Issuer shall not:

 

  (i) except as expressly permitted by this Indenture, the Trust Agreement, the Receivables Purchase Agreement or the Sale and Servicing Agreement, sell, transfer, exchange or otherwise dispose of any of the properties or assets of the Issuer, including those included in the Trust Estate, unless directed to do so in writing by the Indenture Trustee;

 

  (ii) claim any credit on, or make any deduction from the principal or interest payable in respect of, the Notes (other than amounts properly withheld from such payments under the Code or applicable State law) or assert any claim against any present or former Noteholder by reason of the payment of taxes levied or assessed upon the Issuer;

 

23


  (iii) dissolve or liquidate in whole or in part;

 

  (iv) (A) permit the validity or effectiveness of this Indenture to be impaired, or permit the lien of this Indenture to be amended, hypothecated, subordinated, terminated or discharged, or permit any Person to be released from any covenants or obligations with respect to the Notes under this Indenture except as may be expressly permitted hereby, (B) permit any lien (including any lien arising in connection with any tax imposed under HB3), charge, excise, claim, security interest, mortgage or other encumbrance (other than the lien of this Indenture) to be created on or extend to or otherwise arise upon or burden the Trust Estate or any part thereof or any interest therein or the proceeds thereof (other than tax liens, mechanics’ liens and other liens that arise by operation of law, in each case on any of the Financed Vehicles and arising solely as a result of an action or omission of the related Obligor) or (C) permit the lien of this Indenture not to constitute a valid and perfected first priority (other than with respect to any such tax, mechanics’ or other lien) security interest in the Trust Estate;

 

  (v) engage in any activities other than financing, acquiring, owning, pledging and managing the Receivables as contemplated by the Receivables Purchase Agreement, the Trust Agreement, the Sale and Servicing Agreement and this Indenture and activities incidental to such activities; or

 

  (vi) incur, assume or guarantee any indebtedness other than the indebtedness evidenced by the Notes or indebtedness otherwise permitted by the Receivables Purchase Agreement, the Trust Agreement, the Sale and Servicing Agreement or this Indenture.

If the Notes have been declared immediately due and payable following an Event of Default, and such declaration and its consequences have not been rescinded and annulled, the Indenture Trustee may, but need not, elect to maintain possession of the Trust Estate and apply proceeds as if there had been no declaration of acceleration; provided, however, that the Available Funds shall be applied in accordance with such declaration of acceleration in the manner specified in Section 4.6(d) of the Sale and Servicing Agreement.

In determining whether to maintain possession of the Trust Estate, the Indenture Trustee may, but need not, obtain and rely upon an opinion of an Independent investment banking or accounting firm of national reputation as to the feasibility of such proposed action and as to the sufficiency of the Trust Estate for such purpose.

Section 5.6 Limitation of Suits.

(a) No Holder of any Note shall have any right to institute any Proceeding with respect to this Indenture or for the appointment of a receiver or trustee, or for any other remedy hereunder, except in accordance with Section 2.4(d) of the Sale and Servicing Agreement, unless:

  (v) no direction inconsistent with such written request has been given to the Indenture Trustee during such 60-day period by the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class.

(b) It is understood and intended that no one or more Holders of Notes shall have any right in any manner whatever by virtue of, or by availing of, any provision of this Indenture to affect, disturb or prejudice the rights of any other Holders of Notes or to obtain or to seek to obtain priority or preference over any other Holders of Notes or to enforce any right under this Indenture, except in the manner herein provided.

(c) In the event the Indenture Trustee shall receive conflicting or inconsistent requests and indemnity from two or more groups of Holders of Notes, each evidencing less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class, the Indenture Trustee in its sole discretion may determine what action, if any, shall be taken, notwithstanding any other provisions of this Indenture.

Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Indenture, the Holder of any Note shall have the right, which is absolute and unconditional, to receive payment of the principal of and interest, if any, on such Note on the respective due dates thereof expressed in such Note or in this Indenture (or, in the case of redemption, on the Redemption Date) and to institute suit for the enforcement of any such payment, and such right shall not be impaired without the consent of such Holder.

Section 5.8 Restoration of Rights and Remedies. If the Indenture Trustee or any Noteholder has instituted any Proceeding to enforce any right or remedy under this Indenture and such Proceeding has been discontinued or abandoned for any reason or has been determined adversely to the Indenture Trustee or such Noteholder, then and in every such case the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders shall, subject to any determination in such Proceeding, be restored severally and respectively to their former positions hereunder, and thereafter all rights and remedies of the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders shall continue as though no such Proceeding had been instituted.

Section 5.9 Rights and Remedies Cumulative. No right or remedy herein conferred upon or reserved to the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders is intended to be exclusive of any other right or remedy, and every right and remedy shall, to the extent permitted by law, be cumulative and in addition to every other right and remedy given hereunder or now or hereafter existing at law or in equity or otherwise. The assertion or employment of any right or remedy hereunder, or otherwise, shall not prevent the concurrent assertion or employment of any other appropriate right or remedy.

 

40


Section 5.10 Delay or Omission Not a Waiver. No delay or omission of the Indenture Trustee or any Noteholder to exercise any right or remedy accruing upon any Default or Event of Default shall impair any such right or remedy or constitute a waiver of any such Default or Event of Default or any acquiescence therein. Every right and remedy given by this Article V or by law to the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders may be exercised from time to time, and as often as may be deemed expedient, by the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders, as the case may be.

Section 5.11 Control by Noteholders of the Controlling Class.

  (iv) the Indenture Trustee may take any other action deemed proper by the Indenture Trustee that is not inconsistent with such direction.

(b) Notwithstanding the rights of Noteholders set forth in this Section 5.11, subject to Section 6.1, the Indenture Trustee need not take any action that it reasonably believes might involve it in costs, expenses and liabilities for which it will not be adequately indemnified or might materially adversely affect the rights of any Noteholders not consenting to such action.

Section 5.12 Waiver of Past Defaults. Prior to the declaration of the acceleration of the maturity of the Notes as provided in Section 5.2, the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class, may, on behalf of all Noteholders, waive any past Default or Event of Default and its consequences except a Default or Event of Default (i) in the payment of principal of or interest on any of the Notes or (ii) in respect of a covenant or provision hereof that cannot be amended, supplemented or modified without the consent of all the Noteholders. Upon any such waiver, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders shall be restored to their former positions and rights hereunder, respectively, but no such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other Default or Event of Default or impair any right consequent thereto. Upon any such waiver, such Default or Event of Default shall cease to exist and be deemed to have been cured and not to have occurred, and any Event of Default arising therefrom shall be deemed to have been cured and not to have occurred, for every purpose of this Indenture, but no such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other Default or Event of Default or impair any right consequent thereto.

44

45


(d) The Indenture Trustee shall not be liable for any action it takes or omits to take in good faith which it believes to be authorized or within its rights or powers; provided, however, that such action or omission by the Indenture Trustee does not constitute willful misconduct, negligence or bad faith.

(f) The Indenture Trustee shall be under no obligation to exercise any of the rights or powers vested in it by this Indenture at the request or direction of the Noteholders pursuant to this Indenture, unless such Noteholders shall have offered to the Indenture Trustee security or indemnity satisfactory to it against the costs, expenses and liabilities which might be incurred by it in compliance with such request or direction.

(g) The Indenture Trustee shall not be bound to make any investigation into the facts or matters stated in any resolution, certificate, statement, instrument, opinion, report, notice, request, direction, consent, order, bond, debenture or other paper or document, but the Indenture Trustee, in its discretion, may make such further inquiry or investigation into such facts or matters as it may see fit, and, if the Indenture Trustee shall determine to make such further inquiry or investigation, it shall be entitled to examine the books, records and premises of the Issuer, personally or by agent or attorney.

Section 6.3 Individual Rights of Indenture Trustee. The Indenture Trustee, in its individual or any other capacity, may become the owner or pledgee of Notes and may otherwise deal with the Issuer or its Affiliates with the same rights it would have if it were not Indenture Trustee.

Section 6.5 Notice of Defaults. If a Default occurs and is continuing and if it is known to a Responsible Officer of the Indenture Trustee, the Indenture Trustee shall mail to each Noteholder[, the Swap Counterparty] and the Administrator notice of such Default within ninety (90) days after it occurs. Except in the case of a Default in payment of principal of or interest on any Note (including payments pursuant to the mandatory redemption provisions of such Note), the Indenture Trustee may withhold the notice if and so long as a committee of its Responsible Officers in good faith determines that withholding the notice is in the interests of Noteholders.

Section 6.7 Compensation and Indemnity.

(a) The Administrator, on behalf of the Issuer, shall pay to the Indenture Trustee from time to time reasonable compensation for its services. The Indenture Trustee’s compensation shall not be limited by any law on compensation of a trustee of an express trust. The Administrator, on behalf of the Issuer, shall reimburse the Indenture Trustee for all expenses, advances and disbursements reasonably incurred or made by it, including costs of collection, in addition to the compensation for its services; provided, however, that the Administrator need not reimburse the Indenture Trustee for any expense incurred through the Indenture Trustee’s willful misconduct, negligence, or bad faith. Such expenses shall include the reasonable compensation and expenses, disbursements and advances of the Indenture Trustee’s agents, counsel, accountants and experts. The Administrator, on behalf of the Issuer, shall indemnify the Indenture Trustee for, and hold it and its officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents, harmless against, any and all loss, liability or expense (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) incurred by it in connection with the administration of this trust and the performance of its duties hereunder; provided, however, that the Administrator need not indemnify the Indenture Trustee for, or hold it harmless against, any such loss, liability or expense incurred through the Indenture Trustee’s willful misconduct, negligence, or bad faith. The Indenture Trustee shall notify the Issuer and the Administrator promptly of any claim for which it may seek indemnity. Any failure by the Indenture Trustee to so notify the Issuer and the Administrator shall not, however, relieve the Administrator of its obligations hereunder. The Administrator, on behalf of the Issuer, shall defend any such claim. The Indenture Trustee may have separate counsel in connection with the defense of any such claim, and the Administrator, on behalf of the Issuer, shall pay the fees and expenses of such counsel. If the Indenture Trustee is then acting as Administrator, all payment obligations to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to this Section 6.7 shall be paid by CarMax.

(b) The payment obligations to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to this Section 6.7 shall survive the resignation or removal of the Indenture Trustee and the discharge of this Indenture.

(c) When the Indenture Trustee incurs fees or expenses after the occurrence of a Default specified in Section 5.1(a)(v) or Section 5.1(a)(vi) with respect to the Issuer, such fees and expenses are intended to constitute expenses of administration under Title 11 of the United States Code or any other applicable federal or State bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law.

(c) Any successor Indenture Trustee shall deliver a written acceptance of its appointment to the retiring Indenture Trustee, the Issuer, the Administrator[, the Swap Counterparty] and the Depositor. Upon delivery of such written acceptance, the resignation or removal of the retiring Indenture Trustee shall become effective and the successor Indenture Trustee shall have all the rights, powers and duties of the Indenture Trustee under this Indenture. The successor Indenture Trustee shall mail a notice of its succession to the Noteholders. The retiring Indenture Trustee shall promptly transfer all property held by it as Indenture Trustee to the successor Indenture Trustee.

If the Indenture Trustee fails to comply with Section 6.11, any Noteholder may petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the removal of the Indenture Trustee and the appointment of a successor Indenture Trustee.

(e) Notwithstanding the replacement of the Indenture Trustee pursuant to this Section 6.8, the Administrator’s obligations under Section 6.7 shall continue for the benefit of the retiring Indenture Trustee.

Section 6.9 Successor Indenture Trustee by Merger.

(a) If the Indenture Trustee consolidates with, merges or converts into, or transfers all or substantially all its corporate trust business or assets to, another corporation or banking association, the resulting, surviving or transferee corporation or banking association without any further act shall be the successor Indenture Trustee; provided, however, that such corporation or banking association must be otherwise qualified and eligible under Section 6.11. The Indenture Trustee shall provide the Rating Agencies, the Administrator[, the Swap Counterparty] and the Depositor with prior written notice of any such transaction.

(b) If at the time such successor or successors by consolidation, merger or conversion to the Indenture Trustee shall succeed to the trusts created by this Indenture any of the Notes shall have been authenticated but not delivered, any such successor to the Indenture Trustee may adopt the certificate of authentication of any predecessor trustee and deliver such Notes so authenticated, and in case at that time any of the Notes shall not have been authenticated, any such successor to the Indenture Trustee may authenticate such Notes either in the name of any predecessor trustee or in the name of the successor to the Indenture Trustee. In all such cases such certificates shall have the full force which the Notes or this Indenture provide that the certificate of the Indenture Trustee shall have.

Section 6.10 Appointment of Co-Indenture Trustee or Separate Indenture Trustee.

(a) Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Indenture, at any time, for the purpose of meeting any legal requirement of any jurisdiction in which any part of the Trust Estate may at the time be located, the Indenture Trustee shall have the power and may execute and deliver an instrument to appoint one or more Persons to act as a co-trustee or co-trustees, jointly with the Indenture Trustee, or separate trustee or separate trustees, of all or any part of the Trust Estate, and to vest in such Person or Persons, in such capacity and for the benefit of the Noteholders, such title to the Trust Estate, or any part hereof, and, subject to the other provisions of this Section 6.10, such powers, duties, obligations, rights and trusts as the Indenture Trustee may consider necessary or desirable. No co-trustee or separate trustee under this Indenture shall be required to meet the terms of eligibility as a successor trustee under Section 6.11 and no notice of the appointment of any co-trustee or separate trustee shall be required under Section 6.8.

(b) Each separate trustee and co-trustee shall, to the extent permitted by law, be appointed and act subject to the following provisions and conditions:

 

  (i) all rights, powers, duties and obligations conferred or imposed upon the Indenture Trustee shall be conferred or imposed upon and exercised or performed by the Indenture Trustee and such separate trustee or co-trustee jointly (it being understood that such separate trustee or co-trustee shall not be authorized to act separately without the Indenture Trustee joining in such act), except to the extent that under any law of any jurisdiction in which any particular act or acts are to be performed the Indenture Trustee shall be incompetent or unqualified to perform such act or acts, in which event such rights, powers, duties and obligations (including the holding of title to the Trust Estate or any portion thereof in any such jurisdiction) shall be exercised and performed singly by such separate trustee or co-trustee, but solely at the direction of the Indenture Trustee;

 

49


  (ii) no trustee under this Indenture shall be personally liable by reason of any act or omission of any other trustee under this Indenture; and

 

  (iii) the Indenture Trustee may at any time accept the resignation of or remove any separate trustee or co-trustee.

(c) Any notice, request or other writing given to the Indenture Trustee shall be deemed to have been given to each of the then separate trustees and co-trustees as effectively as if given to each of them. Every instrument appointing any separate trustee or co-trustee shall refer to this Indenture and the conditions of this Article VI. Each separate trustee and co-trustee, upon its acceptance of the trusts conferred, shall be vested with the estates or property specified in its instrument of appointment, either jointly with the Indenture Trustee or separately, as may be provided therein, subject to all the provisions of this Indenture, specifically including every provision of this Indenture relating to the conduct of, affecting the liability of, or affording protection to, the Indenture Trustee. Each such instrument shall be filed with the Indenture Trustee.

(d) Any separate trustee or co-trustee may at any time constitute the Indenture Trustee its agent or attorney-in-fact with full power and authority, to the extent permitted by law, to do any lawful act under or in respect of this Indenture on its behalf and in its name. If any separate trustee or co-trustee shall die, become incapable of acting, resign or be removed, all of its estates, properties, rights, remedies and trusts shall vest in and be exercised by the Indenture Trustee, to the extent permitted by law, without the appointment of a new or successor trustee.

The Indenture Trustee will not be required to take action in response to requests, demands or directions of a Noteholder or a Note Owner, other than requests, demands or directions relating to an Asset Representations Review Notice under Section 7.6, unless the Noteholder or Note Owner has offered reasonable security or indemnity reasonably satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee to protect it against the fees and expenses that it may incur in complying with the request, demand or direction.

The Issuer will promptly deliver any request to the Servicer. On receipt of a request, the Servicer will include in the Form 10-D filed by the Issuer with the Commission for the Collection Period in which the request was received (A) a statement that the Issuer or the Servicer has received a request from a Noteholder or Note Owner, as applicable, that is interested in communicating with other Noteholders or Note Owners, as applicable, about a possible exercise of rights under this Indenture or the other Transaction Documents, (B) the name of the requesting Noteholder or Note Owner, (C) the date the request was received and (D) a description of the method by which the other Noteholders or Note Owners, as applicable, may contact the requesting Noteholder or Note Owner. Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its

acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, covenants and agrees that such requesting Noteholder or Note Owner will pay any costs associated with communicating with other Noteholders or Note Owners, and none of the Seller, the Servicer, the Depositor, the Issuer, the Administrator, the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee will be responsible for such costs.

Section 7.6 Asset Representations Review.

If Noteholders and Note Owners, of 5% or more of the aggregate principal amount of all Notes Outstanding demand a vote within 90 days of the filing of the Servicer’s Certificate indicating that the Delinquency Trigger Event has occurred, the Indenture Trustee will promptly request a vote of the Noteholders through the Clearing Agency as described in Section 7.6(b) below; provided that for the purpose of determining the holders of the Notes Outstanding, any Notes held by CarMax or any of its Affiliates shall not be included in such calculation.

(b) Upon the direction of the requisite Noteholders or Note Owners set forth in Section 7.6(a), the Indenture Trustee shall cause the nominee of the Clearing Agency (initially, such nominee to be Cede & Co.) to conduct a vote of all Noteholders. The Indenture Trustee shall provide to the Servicer the voting instructions and procedures applicable to the Noteholders to be included in the Form 10-D filed by the Issuer with the Commission. Each Noteholder that elects to vote shall vote whether or not the Asset Representations Reviewer should be directed to conduct an Asset Representations Review. Noteholders or Note Owners shall be permitted to vote for at least 150 days after the filing of the Servicer’s Certificate indicating that the Delinquency Trigger Event has occurred.

(d) If (i) a majority of the Noteholders voting pursuant to Section 7.6(b) vote to cause the Asset Representations Reviewer to conduct an Asset Representations Review and (ii) the holders of 5% or more of the aggregate principal amount of Outstanding Notes cast a vote, the Indenture Trustee shall provide a notice to the Issuer (the “Asset Representations Review Notice”), which shall promptly provide such Asset Representations Review Notice to the Seller, the Depositor and the Servicer.

(e) The Indenture Trustee shall cooperate with the Asset Representations Reviewer in the event an Asset Representations Review is commenced pursuant to Section 7.6(c) and shall provide the Asset Representations Reviewer with any documents or other information reasonably requested by the Asset Representations Reviewer in connection with the Asset Representations Review.

Section 11.2 Form of Documents Delivered to Indenture Trustee.

(a) In any case where several matters are required to be certified by, or covered by an opinion of, any specified Person, it is not necessary that all such matters be certified by, or covered by the opinion of, only one such Person, or that they be so certified or covered by only one document, but one such Person may certify or give an opinion with respect to some matters and one or more other such Persons as to other matters, and any such Person may certify or give an opinion as to such matters in one or several documents.

(b) Any certificate or opinion of an Authorized Officer of the Issuer may be based, insofar as it relates to legal matters, upon a certificate or opinion of, or representations by, counsel, unless such officer knows, or in the exercise of reasonable care should know, that the certificate or opinion or representations with respect to the matters upon which such officer’s certificate or opinion is based are erroneous. Any such certificate of an Authorized Officer or Opinion of Counsel may be based, insofar as it relates to factual matters, upon a certificate or opinion of, or representations by, one or more officers of the Depositor, the Seller, the Servicer, the Administrator or the Issuer, stating that the information with respect to such factual matters is in the possession of the Depositor, the Seller, the Servicer, the Administrator or the Issuer, unless such Authorized Officer or counsel knows, or in the exercise of reasonable care should know, that the certificate or opinion or representations with respect to such matters are erroneous.

The foregoing shall not, however, be construed to affect the Indenture Trustee’s right to rely upon the truth and accuracy of any statement or opinion contained in any such document as provided in Article VI.

Section 11.3 Acts of Noteholders.

(a) Any request, demand, authorization, direction, notice, consent, waiver or other action provided by this Indenture to be given or taken by the Noteholders may be embodied in and evidenced by one or more instruments of substantially similar tenor signed by the Noteholders in person or by agents duly appointed in writing, and except as herein otherwise expressly provided such action shall become effective when such instrument or instruments are delivered to the Indenture Trustee and, where it is hereby expressly required, to the Issuer.

(b) Notices required to be given to the Rating Agencies by the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee shall be in writing, personally delivered, telecopied or mailed by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the Administrator and the Issuer shall cause the Administrator to promptly provide such notices (i) in the case of [            ], at the following address: [            ], [            ], [            ], [            ], [            ], [            ], Attention: [            ], and (ii) in the case of [            ], [            ], [            ], [            ], [            ] [            ], at the following address: [            ]. The Issuer shall promptly transmit any notice received by it from the Noteholders to the Indenture Trustee. The Indenture Trustee shall likewise promptly transmit any notice received by it from the Noteholders or Note Owners to the Issuer and, if such notice is a Repurchase Request, to the Depositor.

Section 11.5 Notices to Noteholders; Waiver.

(a) Where this Indenture provides for notice to Noteholders of any event, such notice shall be sufficiently given (unless otherwise herein expressly provided) if in writing and mailed, first-class, postage prepaid to each Noteholder affected by such event, at its address as it appears on the Note Register, not later than the latest date, and not earlier than the earliest date, prescribed for the giving of such notice. In any case where notice to Noteholders is given by mail, neither the failure to mail such notice nor any defect in any notice so mailed to any particular Noteholder shall affect the sufficiency of such notice with respect to other Noteholders, and any notice that is mailed in the manner herein provided shall conclusively be presumed to have been duly given.

(b) Where this Indenture provides for notice in any manner, such notice may be waived in writing by any Person entitled to receive such notice, either before or after the event, and such waiver shall be the equivalent of such notice. Waivers of notice by Noteholders shall be filed with the Indenture Trustee, but such filing shall not be a condition precedent to the validity of any action taken in reliance upon such a waiver.

(c) If, by reason of the suspension of regular mail service as a result of a strike, work stoppage or similar activity, it shall be impractical to mail notice of any event to Noteholders when such notice is required to be given pursuant to any provision of this Indenture, then any manner of giving such notice as shall be satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee shall be deemed to be a sufficient giving of such notice.

(d) Where this Indenture provides for notice to the Rating Agencies, failure to give such notice shall not affect any other rights or obligations created hereunder, and shall not under any circumstance constitute a Default or Event of Default.

(e) If the Indenture Trustee receives a Repurchase Request and the Depositor or CarMax does not repurchase the Receivables related to such Repurchase Request within 180-days of the receipt of such Repurchase Request, the Indenture Trustee shall deliver a Repurchase Response Notice to the related Noteholder or Note Owner.

Section 11.6 Alternate Payment and Notice Provisions. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Indenture or any of the Notes to the contrary, the Issuer may enter into any agreement with any Holder of a Note providing for a method of payment, or notice by the Indenture Trustee or any Paying Agent to such Holder, that is different from the methods provided for in this Indenture for such payments or notices.

Section 11.12 Legal Holiday. If the date on which any payment is due shall not be a Business Day, then (notwithstanding any other provision of the Notes or this Indenture) payment need not be made on such date but may be made on the next succeeding Business Day with the same force and effect as if made on the date on which nominally due, and no interest shall accrue for the period from and after any such nominal date.

Section 11.13 GOVERNING LAW; WAIVER OF RIGHT TO JURY TRIAL.

(a) THIS INDENTURE SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK AND THE OBLIGATIONS, RIGHTS AND REMEDIES OF THE PARTIES UNDER THIS INDENTURE SHALL BE DETERMINED IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH LAWS WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO THE CONFLICTS OF LAWS PROVISIONS THEREOF WHICH MAY REQUIRE THE APPLICATION OF THE LAWS OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION (OTHER THAN SECTION 5-1401 OF THE NEW YORK GENERAL OBLIGATIONS LAW).

The agreement set forth in the preceding sentence shall constitute a subordination agreement for purposes of Section 510(a) of the Bankruptcy Code.

APPENDIX A

Additional Representations and Warranties

 

  1. This Indenture creates a valid and continuing “security interest” (as defined in the Relevant UCC) in the Receivables in favor of the Indenture Trustee, which security interest is prior to all other Liens and is enforceable as such as against creditors of and purchasers from the Issuer.

 

  2. With respect to each Receivable, the Issuer has taken all steps necessary to perfect its security interest against the related Obligor in the related Financed Vehicle.

 

  3. The Receivables constitute “tangible chattel paper” (as defined in the Relevant UCC).

 

  4. The Issuer owns and has good and marketable title to the Receivables free and clear of any Lien, claim or encumbrance of any Person.

 

  5. The Issuer has caused or will cause prior to the Closing Date the filing of all appropriate financing statements in the proper filing office in the appropriate jurisdictions under applicable law necessary to perfect the security interest in the Receivables granted to the Indenture Trustee under this Indenture.

Other than the security interest granted to the Indenture Trustee under the Indenture, the Issuer has not pledged, assigned, sold, granted a security interest in, or otherwise conveyed any of the Receivables. The Issuer has not authorized the filing of and is not aware of any financing statements against the Seller, the Depositor or the Issuer that include a description of collateral covering the Receivables other than the financing statements relating to the security interests granted to the Depositor, the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee under the Transaction Documents or any financing statement that has been terminated. The Issuer is not aware of any judgment or tax lien filings against the Seller, the Depositor or the Issuer.

[REVERSE OF CLASS A-1 NOTE]

This Class A-1 Note is one of a duly authorized issue of Notes of the Issuer, designated as its [            ]% Class A-1 Asset-backed Notes, which, together with the [            ]% Class A-2[a] Asset-backed Notes, [the LIBOR + [            ]% Class A-2b Asset-backed Notes,] the [            ]% Class A-3 Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class A-4 Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class B Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class C Asset-backed Notes and the [            ]% Class D Asset-backed Notes (collectively, the “Notes”), are issued under the Indenture, to which Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto reference is hereby made for a statement of the respective rights and obligations thereunder of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Holders of the Notes. The Notes are subject to all terms of the Indenture.

The Class A-1 Notes are and shall be equally and ratably secured by the collateral pledged as security therefor as provided in the Indenture. The Class A-2[a] Notes, [the Class A-2b Notes,] the Class A-3 Notes, the Class A-4 Notes, the Class B Notes, the Class C Notes and the Class D Notes are subordinated to the Class A-1 Notes to the extent set forth in the Indenture and the Sale and Servicing Agreement.

As described above, the entire unpaid principal amount of this Class A-1 Note shall be due and payable on the earlier of the Class A-1 Final Distribution Date and the Redemption Date, if any, pursuant to Section 10.1 of the Indenture. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the entire unpaid principal amount of the Notes, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon through the date of acceleration, shall be due and payable on the date on which an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing if the Indenture Trustee or the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class have declared the Notes to be immediately due and payable in the manner provided in Section 5.2 of the Indenture. All principal payments on the Class A-1 Notes shall be made pro rata to the Holders entitled thereto if the Notes have been declared immediately due and payable.

Payments of interest on this Class A-1 Note due and payable on any Distribution Date, together with the installment of principal, if any, due and payable on such Distribution Date, to the extent not in full payment of this Class A-1 Note, shall be made by check mailed to the Person whose name appears as the Holder of this Class A-1 Note (or one or more Predecessor Notes) on the Note Register as of the close of business on the Record Date preceding such Distribution Date or by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the account designated in writing to the Indenture Trustee by such Person at least five (5) Business Days prior to the related Record Date, except that with respect to Class A-1 Notes registered on the Record Date in the name of the nominee of the Clearing Agency (initially, such nominee to be Cede & Co.), payments will be made by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the account designated by such nominee. Such checks shall be mailed to the Person entitled thereto at the address of such Person as it appears on the Note Register as of such Record Date without requiring that this Class A-1 Note be submitted for notation of payment. Any reduction in the principal amount of this Class A-1 Note (or any one or more Predecessor Notes) effected by any payments made on any Distribution Date shall be binding upon all future Holders of this Class A-1 Note and of any Class A-1 Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof, whether or not noted hereon. If funds are expected to be available, as provided in the Indenture, for payment in full of the then remaining unpaid principal amount of this Class A-1

 

Ex. A-1-4


Note on a Distribution Date, then the Indenture Trustee, in the name of and on behalf of the Issuer, shall notify the Person who was the Holder hereof as of the Record Date preceding such Distribution Date by notice mailed or transmitted by facsimile prior to such Distribution Date, and the amount then due and payable shall be payable only upon presentation and surrender of this Class A-1 Note at the Indenture Trustee’s Corporate Trust Office or at the office of the Indenture Trustee’s agent appointed for such purposes located in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York.

The Issuer shall pay interest on overdue installments of interest at the Class A-1 Rate to the extent lawful.

As provided in the Indenture, the Notes may be redeemed, in whole but not in part, in the manner and to the extent described in the Indenture and the Sale and Servicing Agreement.

As provided in the Indenture, and subject to certain limitations set forth therein, the transfer of this Class A-1 Note may be registered on the Note Register upon surrender of this Class A-1 Note for registration of transfer at the office or agency designated by the Issuer pursuant to the Indenture, duly endorsed by, or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee duly executed by, the Holder hereof or such Holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing, with such signature guaranteed by an “eligible guarantor institution” meeting the requirements of the Note Registrar, and thereupon one or more new Class A-1 Notes in any authorized denomination and in the same aggregate principal amount will be issued to the designated transferee or transferees. No service charge will be charged for any registration of transfer or exchange of this Class A-1 Note, but the transferor may be required to pay a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any such registration of transfer or exchange.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, covenants and agrees that no recourse may be taken, directly or indirectly, with respect to the obligations of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee on the Notes or under the Indenture or any certificate or other writing delivered in connection therewith against (i) the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, (ii) any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer or (iii) any partner, owner, beneficiary, agent, officer, director or employee of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, or any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer, the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee or any successor or assign of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, except as any such Person may have expressly agreed and except that any such partner, owner or beneficiary shall be fully liable, to the extent provided by applicable law, for any unpaid consideration for stock, unpaid capital contribution for stock, unpaid capital contribution or failure to pay any installment or call owing to such entity.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, covenants and agrees that such Noteholder or Note Owner shall not at any time institute against the Depositor or the Issuer, or join in any institution against the Depositor or the Issuer of, any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceedings under any United States federal or State bankruptcy or similar law in connection with any obligations relating to the Notes, the Certificates, the Indenture or any of the other Transaction Documents.

 

Ex. A-1-5


Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, represents and warrants that either (a) it is not acquiring the Note (or an interest therein) with the plan assets of any (i) “employee benefit plan” (as defined in Section 3(3) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”)) subject to the fiduciary requirements of ERISA, (ii) “plan” described in Section 4975(e)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), including individual retirement accounts and Keogh plans, that is subject to the provisions of Section 4975 of the Code, or (iii) employee benefit plan or arrangement not subject to Title I of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code; or (b) the acquisition and holding of the Note will not constitute or result in a non-exempt “prohibited transaction” under Section 406 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code or a violation of any substantially similar applicable law.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, agrees to provide to the Indenture Trustee, any Paying Agent or the Issuer, upon its request, the Noteholder Tax Identification Information and, to the extent FATCA Withholding Tax is applicable, the Noteholder FATCA Information. In addition, each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, agrees that the Indenture Trustee has the right to withhold any amounts of interest (properly withholdable under law and without any corresponding gross-up) payable to a Noteholder or holder of an interest in a Note that fails to comply with the requirements of the preceding sentence.

The Issuer has entered into the Indenture and this Class A-1 Note is issued with the intention that, for federal, State and local income, and franchise tax purposes, the Notes will qualify as indebtedness of the Issuer secured by the Trust Estate. Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, agrees to treat the Notes for federal, State and local income, single business and franchise tax purposes as indebtedness of the Issuer.

Prior to the due presentment for registration of transfer of this Class A-1 Note, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and any agent of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Class A-1 Note (as of the day of determination or as of such other date as may be specified in the Indenture) is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Class A-1 Note shall be overdue, and none of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

[REVERSE OF CLASS A-2 NOTE]

This Class A-2[a] Note is one of a duly authorized issue of Notes of the Issuer, designated as its [            ]% Class A-2[a] Asset-backed Notes, which, together with the [            ]% Class A-1 Asset-backed Notes, [the LIBOR + [            ]% Class A-2b Asset-backed Notes ,] the [            ]% Class A-3 Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class A-4 Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class B Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class C Asset-backed Notes and the [            ]% Class D Asset-backed Notes (collectively, the “Notes”), are issued under the Indenture, to which Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto reference is hereby made for a statement of the respective rights and obligations thereunder of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Holders of the Notes. The Notes are subject to all terms of the Indenture.

The Class A-2[a] Notes are and shall be equally and ratably secured by the collateral pledged as security therefor as provided in the Indenture. The Class A-2[a] Notes are subordinated to the Class A-1 Notes to the extent set forth in the Indenture and the Sale and Servicing Agreement. The Class A-3 Notes, the Class A-4 Notes, the Class B Notes, the Class C Notes and the Class D Notes are subordinated to the Class A-2[a] Notes to the extent set forth in the Indenture and the Sale and Servicing Agreement. [The Class A-2a Notes and the Class A-2b Notes are pari passu to the extent set forth in the Indenture and the Sale and Servicing Agreement.]

As described above, the entire unpaid principal amount of this Class A-2[a] Note shall be due and payable on the earlier of the Class A-2[a] Final Distribution Date and the Redemption Date, if any, pursuant to Section 10.1 of the Indenture. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the entire unpaid principal amount of the Notes, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon through the date of acceleration, shall be due and payable on the date on which an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing if the Indenture Trustee or the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class have declared the Notes to be immediately due and payable in the manner provided in Section 5.2 of the Indenture. All principal payments on the Class A-2[a] Notes shall be made pro rata to the Holders entitled thereto if the Notes have been declared immediately due and payable.

Payments of interest on this Class A-2[a] Note due and payable on any Distribution Date, together with the installment of principal, if any, due and payable on such Distribution Date, to the extent not in full payment of this Class A-2[a] Note, shall be made by check mailed to the Person whose name appears as the Holder of this Class A-2[a] Note (or one or more Predecessor Notes) on the Note Register as of the close of business on the Record Date preceding such Distribution Date or by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the account designated in writing to the Indenture Trustee by such Person at least five (5) Business Days prior to the related Record Date, except that with respect to Class A-2[a] Notes registered on the Record Date in the name of the nominee of the Clearing Agency (initially, such nominee to be Cede & Co.), payments will be made by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the account designated by such nominee. Such checks shall be mailed to the Person entitled thereto at the address of such Person as it appears on the Note Register as of such Record Date without requiring that this Class A-2[a] Note be submitted for notation of payment. Any reduction in the principal amount of this Class A-2[a] Note (or any one or more Predecessor Notes) effected by any payments made on any Distribution Date shall be binding upon all future Holders of this

 

Ex. A-2[a]-4


Class A-2[a] Note and of any Class A-2[a] Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof, whether or not noted hereon. If funds are expected to be available, as provided in the Indenture, for payment in full of the then remaining unpaid principal amount of this Class A-2[a] Note on a Distribution Date, then the Indenture Trustee, in the name of and on behalf of the Issuer, shall notify the Person who was the Holder hereof as of the Record Date preceding such Distribution Date by notice mailed or transmitted by facsimile prior to such Distribution Date, and the amount then due and payable shall be payable only upon presentation and surrender of this Class A-2[a] Note at the Indenture Trustee’s Corporate Trust Office or at the office of the Indenture Trustee’s agent appointed for such purposes located in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York.

The Issuer shall pay interest on overdue installments of interest at the Class A-2[a] Rate to the extent lawful.

As provided in the Indenture, the Notes may be redeemed, in whole but not in part, in the manner and to the extent described in the Indenture and the Sale and Servicing Agreement.

As provided in the Indenture, and subject to certain limitations set forth therein, the transfer of this Class A-2[a] Note may be registered on the Note Register upon surrender of this Class A-2[a] Note for registration of transfer at the office or agency designated by the Issuer pursuant to the Indenture, duly endorsed by, or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee duly executed by, the Holder hereof or such Holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing, with such signature guaranteed by an “eligible guarantor institution” meeting the requirements of the Note Registrar, and thereupon one or more new Class A-2[a] Notes in any authorized denomination and in the same aggregate principal amount will be issued to the designated transferee or transferees. No service charge will be charged for any registration of transfer or exchange of this Class A-2[a] Note, but the transferor may be required to pay a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any such registration of transfer or exchange.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, covenants and agrees that no recourse may be taken, directly or indirectly, with respect to the obligations of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee on the Notes or under the Indenture or any certificate or other writing delivered in connection therewith against (i) the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, (ii) any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer or (iii) any partner, owner, beneficiary, agent, officer, director or employee of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, or any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer, the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee or any successor or assign of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, except as any such Person may have expressly agreed and except that any such partner, owner or beneficiary shall be fully liable, to the extent provided by applicable law, for any unpaid consideration for stock, unpaid capital contribution for stock, unpaid capital contribution or failure to pay any installment or call owing to such entity.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, covenants and agrees that such Noteholder or Note Owner shall not at any time institute against the Depositor or the Issuer, or join in any institution against

 

Ex. A-2[a]-5


the Depositor or the Issuer of, any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceedings under any United States federal or State bankruptcy or similar law in connection with any obligations relating to the Notes, the Certificates, the Indenture or any of the other Transaction Documents.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, represents and warrants that either (a) it is not acquiring the Note (or an interest therein) with the plan assets of any (i) “employee benefit plan” (as defined in Section 3(3) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”)) subject to the fiduciary requirements of ERISA, (ii) “plan” described in Section 4975(e)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), including individual retirement accounts and Keogh plans, that is subject to the provisions of Section 4975 of the Code, or (iii) employee benefit plan or arrangement not subject to Title I of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code; or (b) the acquisition and holding of the Note will not constitute or result in a non-exempt “prohibited transaction” under Section 406 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code or a violation of any substantially similar applicable law.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, agrees to provide to the Indenture Trustee, any Paying Agent or the Issuer, upon its request, the Noteholder Tax Identification Information and, to the extent FATCA Withholding Tax is applicable, the Noteholder FATCA Information. In addition, each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, agrees that the Indenture Trustee has the right to withhold any amounts of interest (properly withholdable under law and without any corresponding gross-up) payable to a Noteholder or holder of an interest in a Note that fails to comply with the requirements of the preceding sentence.

The Issuer has entered into the Indenture and this Class A-2[a] Note is issued with the intention that, for federal, State and local income, and franchise tax purposes, the Notes will qualify as indebtedness of the Issuer secured by the Trust Estate. Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, agrees to treat the Notes for federal, State and local income, single business and franchise tax purposes as indebtedness of the Issuer.

Prior to the due presentment for registration of transfer of this Class A-2[a] Note, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and any agent of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Class A-2[a] Note (as of the day of determination or as of such other date as may be specified in the Indenture) is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Class A-2[a] Note shall be overdue, and none of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

The Indenture permits the Owner Trustee, on behalf of the Issuer, and the Indenture Trustee, with certain exceptions therein provided, to amend or waive from time to time certain terms and conditions set forth in the Indenture without the consent of the Holders of the Notes. The Indenture also permits the Owner Trustee, on behalf of the Issuer, and the Indenture Trustee, with certain exceptions as therein provided, to amend or waive from time to time certain terms and conditions set forth in the Indenture with the consent of the Holders of Notes evidencing not

Any such consent or waiver by the Holders of not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class or the Holder of this Class A-2[a] Note (or any one or more Predecessor Notes) shall be conclusive and binding on such Holder and on all future Holders of this Class A-2[a] Note and of any Class A-2[a] Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Class A-2[a] Note.

The term “Issuer”, as used in this Note, includes any successor to the Issuer under the Indenture.

The Indenture permits the Issuer, under certain circumstances, to consolidate or merge with or into another Person, subject to the rights of the Indenture Trustee and the Holders of Notes under the Indenture.

The Notes are issuable only in registered form in denominations as provided in the Indenture, subject to certain limitations therein set forth.

THIS CLASS A-2[A] NOTE AND THE INDENTURE SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, AND THE OBLIGATIONS, RIGHTS AND REMEDIES OF THE PARTIES HEREUNDER AND THEREUNDER SHALL BE DETERMINED IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH LAWS WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO THE CONFLICTS OF LAWS PROVISIONS THEREOF WHICH MAY REQUIRE THE APPLICATION OF THE LAWS OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION (OTHER THAN SECTION 5-1401 OF THE NEW YORK GENERAL OBLIGATIONS LAW).

No reference herein to the Indenture, and no provision of this Note or of the Indenture, shall alter or impair the obligation of the Issuer, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of and interest on this Class A-2[a] Note at the times, place and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein prescribed.

Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, except as expressly provided in the Transaction Documents, none of [            ], in its individual capacity, [            ], in its individual capacity, any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer, or any of their respective partners, beneficiaries, agents, officers, directors, employees or successors or assigns shall be personally liable for, nor shall recourse be had to any of them for, the payment of principal of or interest on this Class A-2[a] Note or the performance of, or omission to perform, any of the covenants, obligations or indemnifications contained in the Indenture. The Holder of this Note, by its acceptance hereof, agrees that, except as expressly provided in the Transaction Documents, in the case of an Event of Default under the Indenture, the Holder shall have no claim against any of the foregoing for any deficiency, loss or claim resulting therefrom; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall be taken to prevent recourse to, or enforcement against, the assets of the Issuer for any and all liabilities, obligations and undertakings contained in the Indenture or in this Class A-2[a] Note.

As described above, the entire unpaid principal amount of this Class A-2b Note shall be due and payable on the earlier of the Class A-2b Final Distribution Date and the Redemption Date, if any, pursuant to Section 10.1 of the Indenture. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the entire unpaid principal amount of the Notes, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon through the date of acceleration, shall be due and payable on the date on which an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing if the Indenture Trustee or the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class have declared the Notes to be immediately due and payable in the manner provided in Section 5.2 of the Indenture. All principal payments on the Class A-2b Notes shall be made pro rata to the Holders entitled thereto if the Notes have been declared immediately due and payable.

Such checks shall be mailed to the Person entitled thereto at the address of such Person as it appears on the Note Register as of such Record Date without requiring that this Class A-2b Note be submitted for notation of payment.

If funds are expected to be available, as provided in the Indenture, for payment in full of the then remaining unpaid principal amount of this Class A-2b Note on a Distribution Date, then the Indenture Trustee, in the name of and on behalf of the Issuer, shall notify the Person who was the Holder hereof as of the Record Date preceding such Distribution Date by notice mailed or transmitted by facsimile prior to such Distribution Date, and the amount then due and payable shall be payable only upon presentation and surrender of this Class A-2b Note at the Indenture Trustee’s Corporate Trust Office or at the office of the Indenture Trustee’s agent appointed for such purposes located in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York.

The Issuer shall pay interest on overdue installments of interest at the Class A-2b Rate to the extent lawful.

No service charge will be charged for any registration of transfer or exchange of this Class A-2b Note, but the transferor may be required to pay a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any such registration of transfer or exchange.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, covenants and agrees that no recourse may be taken, directly or indirectly, with respect to the obligations of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee on the Notes or under the Indenture or any certificate or other writing delivered in connection therewith against (i) the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, (ii) any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer or (iii) any partner, owner, beneficiary, agent, officer, director or employee of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, or any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer, the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee or any successor or assign of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, except as any such Person may have expressly agreed and except that any such partner, owner or beneficiary shall be fully liable, to the extent provided by applicable law, for any unpaid consideration for stock, unpaid capital contribution for stock, unpaid capital contribution or failure to pay any installment or call owing to such entity.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, represents and warrants that either (a) it is not acquiring the Note (or an interest therein) with the plan assets of any (i) “employee benefit plan” (as defined in Section 3(3) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”)) subject to the fiduciary requirements of ERISA, (ii) “plan” described in Section 4975(e)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), including individual retirement accounts and Keogh plans, that is subject to the provisions of Section 4975 of the Code, or (iii) employee benefit plan or arrangement not subject to Title I of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code; or (b) the acquisition and holding of the Note will not constitute or result in a non-exempt “prohibited transaction” under Section 406 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code or a violation of any substantially similar applicable law.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, agrees to provide to the Indenture Trustee, any Paying Agent or the Issuer, upon its request, the Noteholder Tax Identification Information and, to the extent FATCA Withholding Tax is applicable, the Noteholder FATCA Information. In addition, each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, agrees that the Indenture Trustee has the right to withhold any amounts of interest (properly withholdable under law and without any corresponding gross-up) payable to a Noteholder or holder of an interest in a Note that fails to comply with the requirements of the preceding sentence.

The Issuer has entered into the Indenture and this Class A-2b Note is issued with the intention that, for federal, State and local income, and franchise tax purposes, the Notes will qualify as indebtedness of the Issuer secured by the Trust Estate. Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, agrees to treat the Notes for federal, State and local income, single business and franchise tax purposes as indebtedness of the Issuer.

Prior to the due presentment for registration of transfer of this Class A-2b Note, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and any agent of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Class A-2b Note (as of the day of determination or as of such other date as may be specified in the Indenture) is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Class A-2b Note shall be overdue, and none of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

The Indenture permits the Owner Trustee, on behalf of the Issuer, and the Indenture Trustee, with certain exceptions therein provided, to amend or waive from time to time certain terms and conditions set forth in the Indenture without the consent of the Holders of the Notes.

 

Ex. A-2b-6

The Indenture also permits the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class, on behalf of the Holders of all the Notes, to waive compliance by the Issuer with certain provisions of the Indenture and certain past defaults under the Indenture and their consequences. Any such consent or waiver by the Holders of not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class or the Holder of this Class A-2b Note (or any one or more Predecessor Notes) shall be conclusive and binding on such Holder and on all future Holders of this Class A-2b Note and of any Class A-2b Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Class A-2b Note.

The term “Issuer”, as used in this Note, includes any successor to the Issuer under the Indenture.

The Indenture permits the Issuer, under certain circumstances, to consolidate or merge with or into another Person, subject to the rights of the Indenture Trustee and the Holders of Notes under the Indenture.

The Notes are issuable only in registered form in denominations as provided in the Indenture, subject to certain limitations therein set forth.

THIS CLASS A-2B NOTE AND THE INDENTURE SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, AND THE OBLIGATIONS, RIGHTS AND REMEDIES OF THE PARTIES HEREUNDER AND THEREUNDER SHALL BE DETERMINED IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH LAWS WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO THE CONFLICTS OF LAWS PROVISIONS THEREOF WHICH MAY REQUIRE THE APPLICATION OF THE LAWS OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION (OTHER THAN SECTION 5-1401 OF THE NEW YORK GENERAL OBLIGATIONS LAW).

No reference herein to the Indenture, and no provision of this Note or of the Indenture, shall alter or impair the obligation of the Issuer, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of and interest on this Class A-2b Note at the times, place and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein prescribed.

The Holder of this Note, by its acceptance hereof, agrees that, except as expressly provided in the Transaction Documents, in the case of an Event of Default under the Indenture, the Holder shall have no claim against any of the foregoing for any deficiency, loss or claim resulting therefrom; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall be taken to prevent recourse to, or enforcement against, the assets of the Issuer for any and all liabilities, obligations and undertakings contained in the Indenture or in this Class A-2b Note.

[REVERSE OF CLASS A-3 NOTE]

This Class A-3 Note is one of a duly authorized issue of Notes of the Issuer, designated as its [            ]% Class A-3 Asset-backed Notes, which, together with the [            ]% Class A-1 Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class A-2[a] Asset-backed Notes, [the LIBOR + [            ]% Class A-2b Asset-backed Notes,] the [            ]% Class A-4 Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class B Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class C Asset-backed Notes and the [            ]% Class D Asset-backed Notes (collectively, the “Notes”), are issued under the Indenture, to which Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto reference is hereby made for a statement of the respective rights and obligations thereunder of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Holders of the Notes. The Notes are subject to all terms of the Indenture.

The Class A-3 Notes are and shall be equally and ratably secured by the collateral pledged as security therefor as provided in the Indenture. The Class A-3 Notes are subordinated to the Class A-1 Notes, the Class A-2[a] Notes [and the Class A-2b Notes] to the extent set forth in the Indenture and the Sale and Servicing Agreement. The Class A-4 Notes, the Class B Notes, the Class C Notes and the Class D Notes are subordinated to the Class A-3 Notes to the extent set forth in the Indenture and the Sale and Servicing Agreement.

As described above, the entire unpaid principal amount of this Class A-3 Note shall be due and payable on the earlier of the Class A-3 Final Distribution Date and the Redemption Date, if any, pursuant to Section 10.1 of the Indenture. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the entire unpaid principal amount of the Notes, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon through the date of acceleration, shall be due and payable on the date on which an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing if the Indenture Trustee or the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class have declared the Notes to be immediately due and payable in the manner provided in Section 5.2 of the Indenture. All principal payments on the Class A-3 Notes shall be made pro rata to the Holders entitled thereto if the Notes have been declared immediately due and payable.

Payments of interest on this Class A-3 Note due and payable on any Distribution Date, together with the installment of principal, if any, due and payable on such Distribution Date, to the extent not in full payment of this Class A-3 Note, shall be made by check mailed to the Person whose name appears as the Holder of this Class A-3 Note (or one or more Predecessor Notes) on the Note Register as of the close of business on the Record Date preceding such Distribution Date or by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the account designated in writing to the Indenture Trustee by such Person at least five (5) Business Days prior to the related Record Date, except that with respect to Class A-3 Notes registered on the Record Date in the name of the nominee of the Clearing Agency (initially, such nominee to be Cede & Co.), payments will be made by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the account designated by such nominee. Such checks shall be mailed to the Person entitled thereto at the address of such Person as it appears on the Note Register as of such Record Date without requiring that this Class A-3 Note be submitted for notation of payment. Any reduction in the principal amount of this Class A-3 Note (or any one or more Predecessor Notes) effected by any payments made on any Distribution Date shall be binding upon all future Holders of this Class A-3 Note and of any Class A-3 Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof, whether or not noted hereon. If funds are expected to be available, as provided in the

 

Ex. A-3-4


Indenture, for payment in full of the then remaining unpaid principal amount of this Class A-3 Note on a Distribution Date, then the Indenture Trustee, in the name of and on behalf of the Issuer, shall notify the Person who was the Holder hereof as of the Record Date preceding such Distribution Date by notice mailed or transmitted by facsimile prior to such Distribution Date, and the amount then due and payable shall be payable only upon presentation and surrender of this Class A-3 Note at the Indenture Trustee’s Corporate Trust Office or at the office of the Indenture Trustee’s agent appointed for such purposes located in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York.

The Issuer shall pay interest on overdue installments of interest at the Class A-3 Rate to the extent lawful.

As provided in the Indenture, and subject to certain limitations set forth therein, the transfer of this Class A-3 Note may be registered on the Note Register upon surrender of this Class A-3 Note for registration of transfer at the office or agency designated by the Issuer pursuant to the Indenture, duly endorsed by, or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee duly executed by, the Holder hereof or such Holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing, with such signature guaranteed by an “eligible guarantor institution” meeting the requirements of the Note Registrar, and thereupon one or more new Class A-3 Notes in any authorized denomination and in the same aggregate principal amount will be issued to the designated transferee or transferees. No service charge will be charged for any registration of transfer or exchange of this Class A-3 Note, but the transferor may be required to pay a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any such registration of transfer or exchange.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, covenants and agrees that no recourse may be taken, directly or indirectly, with respect to the obligations of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee on the Notes or under the Indenture or any certificate or other writing delivered in connection therewith against (i) the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, (ii) any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer or (iii) any partner, owner, beneficiary, agent, officer, director or employee of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, or any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer, the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee or any successor or assign of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, except as any such Person may have expressly agreed and except that any such partner, owner or beneficiary shall be fully liable, to the extent provided by applicable law, for any unpaid consideration for stock, unpaid capital contribution for stock, unpaid capital contribution or failure to pay any installment or call owing to such entity.

Ex. A-3-5

In addition, each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, agrees that the Indenture Trustee has the right to withhold any amounts of interest (properly withholdable under law and without any corresponding gross-up) payable to a Noteholder or holder of an interest in a Note that fails to comply with the requirements of the preceding sentence.

The Issuer has entered into the Indenture and this Class A-3 Note is issued with the intention that, for federal, State and local income, and franchise tax purposes, the Notes will qualify as indebtedness of the Issuer secured by the Trust Estate. Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, agrees to treat the Notes for federal, State and local income, single business and franchise tax purposes as indebtedness of the Issuer.

Prior to the due presentment for registration of transfer of this Class A-3 Note, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and any agent of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Class A-3 Note (as of the day of determination or as of such other date as may be specified in the Indenture) is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Class A-3 Note shall be overdue, and none of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

The Indenture permits the Owner Trustee, on behalf of the Issuer, and the Indenture Trustee, with certain exceptions therein provided, to amend or waive from time to time certain terms and conditions set forth in the Indenture without the consent of the Holders of the Notes.

Ex. A-3-6

Any such consent or waiver by the Holders of not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class or the Holder of this Class A-3 Note (or any one or more Predecessor Notes) shall be conclusive and binding on such Holder and on all future Holders of this Class A-3 Note and of any Class A-3 Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Class A-3 Note.

The term “Issuer”, as used in this Note, includes any successor to the Issuer under the Indenture.

The Indenture permits the Issuer, under certain circumstances, to consolidate or merge with or into another Person, subject to the rights of the Indenture Trustee and the Holders of Notes under the Indenture.

The Holder of this Note, by its acceptance hereof, agrees that, except as expressly provided in the Transaction Documents, in the case of an Event of Default under the Indenture, the Holder shall have no claim against any of the foregoing for any deficiency, loss or claim resulting therefrom; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall be taken to prevent recourse to, or enforcement against, the assets of the Issuer for any and all liabilities, obligations and undertakings contained in the Indenture or in this Class A-3 Note.

[REVERSE OF CLASS A-4 NOTE]

This Class A-4 Note is one of a duly authorized issue of Notes of the Issuer, designated as its [            ]% Class A-4 Asset-backed Notes, which, together with the [            ]% Class A-1 Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class A-2[a] Asset-backed Notes, [the LIBOR + [            ]% Class A-2b Asset-backed Notes,] the [            ]% Class A-3 Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class B Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class C Asset-backed Notes and the [            ]% Class D Asset-backed Notes (collectively, the “Notes”), are issued under the Indenture, to which Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto reference is hereby made for a statement of the respective rights and obligations thereunder of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Holders of the Notes. The Notes are subject to all terms of the Indenture.

The Class A-4 Notes are and shall be equally and ratably secured by the collateral pledged as security therefor as provided in the Indenture. The Class A-4 Notes are subordinated to the Class A-1 Notes, the Class A-2[a] Notes, [the Class A-2b Notes] and the Class A-3 Notes to the extent set forth in the Indenture and the Sale and Servicing Agreement. The Class B Notes, the Class C Notes and the Class D Notes are subordinated to the Class A-4 Notes to the extent set forth in the Indenture and the Sale and Servicing Agreement.

As described above, the entire unpaid principal amount of this Class A-4 Note shall be due and payable on the earlier of the Class A-4 Final Distribution Date and the Redemption Date, if any, pursuant to Section 10.1 of the Indenture. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the entire unpaid principal amount of the Notes, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon through the date of acceleration, shall be due and payable on the date on which an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing if the Indenture Trustee or the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class have declared the Notes to be immediately due and payable in the manner provided in Section 5.2 of the Indenture. All principal payments on the Class A-4 Notes shall be made pro rata to the Holders entitled thereto if the Notes have been declared immediately due and payable.

Payments of interest on this Class A-4 Note due and payable on any Distribution Date, together with the installment of principal, if any, due and payable on such Distribution Date, to the extent not in full payment of this Class A-4 Note, shall be made by check mailed to the Person whose name appears as the Holder of this Class A-4 Note (or one or more Predecessor Notes) on the Note Register as of the close of business on the Record Date preceding such Distribution Date or by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the account designated in writing to the Indenture Trustee by such Person at least five (5) Business Days prior to the related Record Date, except that with respect to Class A-4 Notes registered on the Record Date in the name of the nominee of the Clearing Agency (initially, such nominee to be Cede & Co.), payments will be made by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the account designated by such nominee. Such checks shall be mailed to the Person entitled thereto at the address of such Person as it appears on the Note Register as of such Record Date without requiring that this Class A-4 Note be submitted for notation of payment. Any reduction in the principal amount of this Class A-4 Note (or any one or more Predecessor Notes) effected by any payments made on any Distribution Date shall be binding upon all future Holders of this Class A-4 Note and of any Class A-4 Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof, whether or not noted hereon. If funds are expected to be available, as provided in the

 

Ex. A-4-4


Indenture, for payment in full of the then remaining unpaid principal amount of this Class A-4 Note on a Distribution Date, then the Indenture Trustee, in the name of and on behalf of the Issuer, shall notify the Person who was the Holder hereof as of the Record Date preceding such Distribution Date by notice mailed or transmitted by facsimile prior to such Distribution Date, and the amount then due and payable shall be payable only upon presentation and surrender of this Class A-4 Note at the Indenture Trustee’s Corporate Trust Office or at the office of the Indenture Trustee’s agent appointed for such purposes located in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York.

The Issuer shall pay interest on overdue installments of interest at the Class A-4 Rate to the extent lawful.

As provided in the Indenture, the Notes may be redeemed, in whole but not in part, in the manner and to the extent described in the Indenture and the Sale and Servicing Agreement.

As provided in the Indenture, and subject to certain limitations set forth therein, the transfer of this Class A-4 Note may be registered on the Note Register upon surrender of this Class A-4 Note for registration of transfer at the office or agency designated by the Issuer pursuant to the Indenture, duly endorsed by, or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee duly executed by, the Holder hereof or such Holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing, with such signature guaranteed by an “eligible guarantor institution” meeting the requirements of the Note Registrar, and thereupon one or more new Class A-4 Notes in any authorized denomination and in the same aggregate principal amount will be issued to the designated transferee or transferees. No service charge will be charged for any registration of transfer or exchange of this Class A-4 Note, but the transferor may be required to pay a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any such registration of transfer or exchange.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, covenants and agrees that no recourse may be taken, directly or indirectly, with respect to the obligations of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee on the Notes or under the Indenture or any certificate or other writing delivered in connection therewith against (i) the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, (ii) any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer or (iii) any partner, owner, beneficiary, agent, officer, director or employee of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, or any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer, the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee or any successor or assign of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, except as any such Person may have expressly agreed and except that any such partner, owner or beneficiary shall be fully liable, to the extent provided by applicable law, for any unpaid consideration for stock, unpaid capital contribution for stock, unpaid capital contribution or failure to pay any installment or call owing to such entity.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, covenants and agrees that such Noteholder or Note Owner shall not at any time institute against the Depositor or the Issuer, or join in any institution against the Depositor or the Issuer of, any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceedings under any United States federal or State bankruptcy or similar law in connection with any obligations relating to the Notes, the Certificates, the Indenture or any of the other Transaction Documents.

 

Ex. A-4-5


Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, represents and warrants that either (a) it is not acquiring the Note (or an interest therein) with the plan assets of any (i) “employee benefit plan” (as defined in Section 3(3) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”)) subject to the fiduciary requirements of ERISA, (ii) “plan” described in Section 4975(e)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), including individual retirement accounts and Keogh plans, that is subject to the provisions of Section 4975 of the Code, or (iii) employee benefit plan or arrangement not subject to Title I of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code; or (b) the acquisition and holding of the Note will not constitute or result in a non-exempt “prohibited transaction” under Section 406 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code or a violation of any substantially similar applicable law.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, agrees to provide to the Indenture Trustee, any Paying Agent or the Issuer, upon its request, the Noteholder Tax Identification Information and, to the extent FATCA Withholding Tax is applicable, the Noteholder FATCA Information. In addition, each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, agrees that the Indenture Trustee has the right to withhold any amounts of interest (properly withholdable under law and without any corresponding gross-up) payable to a Noteholder or holder of an interest in a Note that fails to comply with the requirements of the preceding sentence.

The Issuer has entered into the Indenture and this Class A-4 Note is issued with the intention that, for federal, State and local income, and franchise tax purposes, the Notes will qualify as indebtedness of the Issuer secured by the Trust Estate. Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, agrees to treat the Notes for federal, State and local income, single business and franchise tax purposes as indebtedness of the Issuer.

Prior to the due presentment for registration of transfer of this Class A-4 Note, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and any agent of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Class A-4 Note (as of the day of determination or as of such other date as may be specified in the Indenture) is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Class A-4 Note shall be overdue, and none of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

The Indenture permits the Owner Trustee, on behalf of the Issuer, and the Indenture Trustee, with certain exceptions therein provided, to amend or waive from time to time certain terms and conditions set forth in the Indenture without the consent of the Holders of the Notes. The Indenture also permits the Owner Trustee, on behalf of the Issuer, and the Indenture Trustee, with certain exceptions as therein provided, to amend or waive from time to time certain terms and conditions set forth in the Indenture with the consent of the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class. The Indenture also permits the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class, on

 

Ex. A-4-6


behalf of the Holders of all the Notes, to waive compliance by the Issuer with certain provisions of the Indenture and certain past defaults under the Indenture and their consequences. Any such consent or waiver by the Holders of not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class or the Holder of this Class A-4 Note (or any one or more Predecessor Notes) shall be conclusive and binding on such Holder and on all future Holders of this Class A-4 Note and of any Class A-4 Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Class A-4 Note.

The term “Issuer”, as used in this Note, includes any successor to the Issuer under the Indenture.

The Indenture permits the Issuer, under certain circumstances, to consolidate or merge with or into another Person, subject to the rights of the Indenture Trustee and the Holders of Notes under the Indenture.

The Notes are issuable only in registered form in denominations as provided in the Indenture, subject to certain limitations therein set forth.

THIS CLASS A-4 NOTE AND THE INDENTURE SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, AND THE OBLIGATIONS, RIGHTS AND REMEDIES OF THE PARTIES HEREUNDER AND THEREUNDER SHALL BE DETERMINED IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH LAWS WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO THE CONFLICTS OF LAWS PROVISIONS THEREOF WHICH MAY REQUIRE THE APPLICATION OF THE LAWS OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION (OTHER THAN SECTION 5-1401 OF THE NEW YORK GENERAL OBLIGATIONS LAW).

No reference herein to the Indenture, and no provision of this Note or of the Indenture, shall alter or impair the obligation of the Issuer, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of and interest on this Class A-4 Note at the times, place and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein prescribed.

Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, except as expressly provided in the Transaction Documents, none of [            ], in its individual capacity, [            ], in its individual capacity, any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer, or any of their respective partners, beneficiaries, agents, officers, directors, employees or successors or assigns shall be personally liable for, nor shall recourse be had to any of them for, the payment of principal of or interest on this Class A-4 Note or the performance of, or omission to perform, any of the covenants, obligations or indemnifications contained in the Indenture. The Holder of this Note, by its acceptance hereof, agrees that, except as expressly provided in the Transaction Documents, in the case of an Event of Default under the Indenture, the Holder shall have no claim against any of the foregoing for any deficiency, loss or claim resulting therefrom; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall be taken to prevent recourse to, or enforcement against, the assets of the Issuer for any and all liabilities, obligations and undertakings contained in the Indenture or in this Class A-4 Note.

[        ]% CLASS D ASSET-BACKED NOTE[, RULE 144A]

CarMax Auto Owner Trust 20[    ]-[    ], a statutory trust organized and existing under the laws of the State of Delaware (herein referred to as the “Issuer”), for value received, hereby promises to pay to [Cede & Co., or its registered assigns,] the principal sum of [            ] DOLLARS payable on each Distribution Date in an amount equal to the aggregate amount, if any, payable from the Note Payment Account in respect of principal on the Class D Notes pursuant to Section 2.8 of the Indenture dated as of [            ], 20[    ] (as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified and in effect from time to time, the “Indenture”) between the Issuer and [            ], a [            ], as Indenture Trustee (in such capacity, the “Indenture Trustee”); provided, however, that principal of this Class D Note will not be due and payable until the Class A-1 Notes, the Class A-2[a] Notes, [the Class A-2b Notes,] the Class A-3 Notes, the Class A-4 Notes, the Class B Notes and the Class C Notes have been paid in full; and, provided further, that, if not paid prior to such date, the unpaid principal amount of this Class D Note shall be due and payable on the earlier of the [            ], 20[    ] Distribution Date (the “Class D Final Distribution Date”) and the Redemption Date, if any, pursuant to Section 10.1 of the Indenture. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein are defined in Article I of the Indenture, which also contains rules as to construction that shall be applicable hereto.

The Issuer shall pay interest on this Class D Note at the rate per annum shown above on each Distribution Date, until the principal of this Class D Note is paid or made available for payment, on the principal amount of this Class D Note outstanding on the preceding Distribution Date (after giving effect to all payments of principal made on such preceding Distribution Date), subject to certain limitations contained in Section 3.1 of the Indenture. Interest on this Class D Note shall accrue for each Distribution Date from and including the [15th] day of the preceding month (or, in the case of the initial Distribution Date or if no interest has been paid, from and including the Closing Date) to but excluding the [15th] day of the month in which such Distribution Date occurs. Interest shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months. Interest on this Class D Note on each Distribution Date shall equal one-

 

Ex. D-2


twelfth of the product of (i) the rate per annum shown above and (ii) the principal amount of this Class D Note outstanding on the preceding Distribution Date (after giving effect to all payments of principal made on such preceding Distribution Date); provided, however, that the interest payable on this Class D Note on [            ], 20[    ] shall equal $[            ]. The principal of and interest on this Class D Note shall be paid in the manner specified on the reverse hereof.

Distribution Date” means the [15th] day of each month or, if such [15th] day is not a Business Day, the following Business Day, commencing on [            ], 20[    ].

[REVERSE OF CLASS D NOTE]

This Class D Note is one of a duly authorized issue of Notes of the Issuer, designated as its [            ]% Class D Asset-backed Notes, which, together with the [            ]% Class A-1 Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class A-2[a] Asset-backed Notes, [the LIBOR + [            ]% Class A-2b Asset-backed Notes,] the [            ]% Class A-3 Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class A-4 Asset-backed Notes, the [            ]% Class B Asset-backed Notes and the [            ]% Class C Asset-backed Notes (collectively, the “Notes”), are issued under the Indenture, to which Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto reference is hereby made for a statement of the respective rights and obligations thereunder of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Holders of the Notes. The Notes are subject to all terms of the Indenture.

The Class D Notes are and shall be equally and ratably secured by the collateral pledged as security therefor as provided in the Indenture. The Class D Notes are subordinated to the Class A-1 Notes, the Class A-2[a] Notes, [the Class A-2b Notes,] the Class A-3 Notes, the Class A-4 Notes, the Class B Notes and the Class C Notes to the extent set forth in the Indenture and the Sale and Servicing Agreement.

As described above, the entire unpaid principal amount of this Class D Note shall be due and payable on the earlier of the Class D Final Distribution Date and the Redemption Date, if any, pursuant to Section 10.1 of the Indenture. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the entire unpaid principal amount of the Notes, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon through the date of acceleration, shall be due and payable on the date on which an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing if the Indenture Trustee or the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class have declared the Notes to be immediately due and payable in the manner provided in Section 5.2 of the Indenture. All principal payments on the Class D Notes shall be made pro rata to the Holders entitled thereto if the Notes have been declared immediately due and payable.

Payments of interest on this Class D Note due and payable on any Distribution Date, together with the installment of principal, if any, due and payable on such Distribution Date, to the extent not in full payment of this Class D Note, shall be made by check mailed to the Person whose name appears as the Holder of this Class D Note (or one or more Predecessor Notes) on the Note Register as of the close of business on the Record Date preceding such Distribution Date or by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the account designated in writing to the Indenture Trustee by such Person at least five (5) Business Days prior to the related Record Date, except that with respect to Class D Notes registered on the Record Date in the name of the nominee of the Clearing Agency (initially, such nominee to be Cede & Co.), payments will be made by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the account designated by such nominee. Such checks shall be mailed to the Person entitled thereto at the address of such Person as it appears on the Note Register as of such Record Date without requiring that this Class D Note be submitted for notation of payment. Any reduction in the principal amount of this Class D Note (or any one or more Predecessor Notes) effected by any payments made on any Distribution Date shall be binding upon all future Holders of this Class D Note and of any Class D Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof, whether or not noted hereon. If funds are expected to be available, as provided in the Indenture, for payment in full of the then remaining unpaid principal amount of this Class D

 

Ex. D-5


Note on a Distribution Date, then the Indenture Trustee, in the name of and on behalf of the Issuer, shall notify the Person who was the Holder hereof as of the Record Date preceding such Distribution Date by notice mailed or transmitted by facsimile prior to such Distribution Date, and the amount then due and payable shall be payable only upon presentation and surrender of this Class D Note at the Indenture Trustee’s Corporate Trust Office or at the office of the Indenture Trustee’s agent appointed for such purposes located in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York.

The Issuer shall pay interest on overdue installments of interest at the Class D Rate to the extent lawful.

As provided in the Indenture, the Notes may be redeemed, in whole but not in part, in the manner and to the extent described in the Indenture and the Sale and Servicing Agreement.

As provided in the Indenture, and subject to certain limitations set forth therein, the transfer of this Class D Note may be registered on the Note Register upon surrender of this Class D Note for registration of transfer at the office or agency designated by the Issuer pursuant to the Indenture, duly endorsed by, or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee duly executed by, the Holder hereof or such Holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing, with such signature guaranteed by an “eligible guarantor institution” meeting the requirements of the Note Registrar, and thereupon one or more new Class D Notes in any authorized denomination and in the same aggregate principal amount will be issued to the designated transferee or transferees. No service charge will be charged for any registration of transfer or exchange of this Class D Note, but the transferor may be required to pay a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any such registration of transfer or exchange.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, covenants and agrees that no recourse may be taken, directly or indirectly, with respect to the obligations of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee on the Notes or under the Indenture or any certificate or other writing delivered in connection therewith against (i) the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, (ii) any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer or (iii) any partner, owner, beneficiary, agent, officer, director or employee of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, or any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer, the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee or any successor or assign of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee, each in its individual capacity, except as any such Person may have expressly agreed and except that any such partner, owner or beneficiary shall be fully liable, to the extent provided by applicable law, for any unpaid consideration for stock, unpaid capital contribution for stock, unpaid capital contribution or failure to pay any installment or call owing to such entity.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, covenants and agrees that such Noteholder or Note Owner shall not at any time institute against the Depositor or the Issuer, or join in any institution against the Depositor or the Issuer of, any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceedings under any United States federal or State bankruptcy or similar law in connection with any obligations relating to the Notes, the Certificates, the Indenture or any of the other Transaction Documents.

 

Ex. D-6


Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, represents and warrants that either (a) it is not acquiring the Note (or an interest therein) with the plan assets of any (i) “employee benefit plan” (as defined in Section 3(3) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”)) subject to the fiduciary requirements of ERISA, (ii) “plan” described in Section 4975(e)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), including individual retirement accounts and Keogh plans, that is subject to the provisions of Section 4975 of the Code, or (iii) employee benefit plan or arrangement not subject to Title I of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code; or (b) the acquisition and holding of the Note will not constitute or result in a non-exempt “prohibited transaction” under Section 406 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code or a violation of any substantially similar applicable law.

Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, agrees to provide to the Indenture Trustee, any Paying Agent or the Issuer, upon its request, the Noteholder Tax Identification Information and, to the extent FATCA Withholding Tax is applicable, the Noteholder FATCA Information. In addition, each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of this Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in this Note, agrees that the Indenture Trustee has the right to withhold any amounts of interest (properly withholdable under law and without any corresponding gross-up) payable to a Noteholder or holder of an interest in a Note that fails to comply with the requirements of the preceding sentence.

The Issuer has entered into the Indenture and this Class D Note is issued with the intention that, for federal, State and local income, and franchise tax purposes, the Notes will qualify as indebtedness of the Issuer secured by the Trust Estate. Each Noteholder or Note Owner, by its acceptance of a Note or, in the case of a Note Owner, a beneficial interest in a Note, agrees to treat the Notes for federal, State and local income, single business and franchise tax purposes as indebtedness of the Issuer.

Prior to the due presentment for registration of transfer of this Class D Note, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and any agent of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Class D Note (as of the day of determination or as of such other date as may be specified in the Indenture) is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Class D Note shall be overdue, and none of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

The Indenture permits the Owner Trustee, on behalf of the Issuer, and the Indenture Trustee, with certain exceptions therein provided, to amend or waive from time to time certain terms and conditions set forth in the Indenture without the consent of the Holders of the Notes. The Indenture also permits the Owner Trustee, on behalf of the Issuer, and the Indenture Trustee, with certain exceptions as therein provided, to amend or waive from time to time certain terms and conditions set forth in the Indenture with the consent of the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class. The Indenture also permits the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class, on

 

Ex. D-7


behalf of the Holders of all the Notes, to waive compliance by the Issuer with certain provisions of the Indenture and certain past defaults under the Indenture and their consequences. Any such consent or waiver by the Holders of not less than 51% of the Note Balance of the Controlling Class or the Holder of this Class D Note (or any one or more Predecessor Notes) shall be conclusive and binding on such Holder and on all future Holders of this Class D Note and of any Class D Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Class D Note.

The term “Issuer”, as used in this Note, includes any successor to the Issuer under the Indenture.

The Indenture permits the Issuer, under certain circumstances, to consolidate or merge with or into another Person, subject to the rights of the Indenture Trustee and the Holders of Notes under the Indenture.

The Notes are issuable only in registered form in denominations as provided in the Indenture, subject to certain limitations therein set forth.

THIS CLASS D NOTE AND THE INDENTURE SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, AND THE OBLIGATIONS, RIGHTS AND REMEDIES OF THE PARTIES HEREUNDER AND THEREUNDER SHALL BE DETERMINED IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH LAWS WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO THE CONFLICTS OF LAWS PROVISIONS THEREOF WHICH MAY REQUIRE THE APPLICATION OF THE LAWS OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION (OTHER THAN SECTION 5-1401 OF THE NEW YORK GENERAL OBLIGATIONS LAW).

No reference herein to the Indenture, and no provision of this Note or of the Indenture, shall alter or impair the obligation of the Issuer, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of and interest on this Class D Note at the times, place and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein prescribed.

Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, except as expressly provided in the Transaction Documents, none of [            ], in its individual capacity, [            ], in its individual capacity, any holder of a beneficial interest in the Issuer, or any of their respective partners, beneficiaries, agents, officers, directors, employees or successors or assigns shall be personally liable for, nor shall recourse be had to any of them for, the payment of principal of or interest on this Class D Note or the performance of, or omission to perform, any of the covenants, obligations or indemnifications contained in the Indenture. The Holder of this Note, by its acceptance hereof, agrees that, except as expressly provided in the Transaction Documents, in the case of an Event of Default under the Indenture, the Holder shall have no claim against any of the foregoing for any deficiency, loss or claim resulting therefrom; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall be taken to prevent recourse to, or enforcement against, the assets of the Issuer for any and all liabilities, obligations and undertakings contained in the Indenture or in this Class D Note.

Exhibit E

Form of Opinion of Counsel

 

[1. Pursuant to Sections 18-201(a), 18-204 and 18-206 of the Delaware Limited Liability Company Act, the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware is required to maintain a public record showing limited liability companies that have been organized. Pursuant to Section 3810, Section 3811 and Section 3812 of the Delaware Statutory Trust Act, the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware is required to maintain a public record showing statutory trusts that have been formed. Based solely on our review of (i) the Delaware Limited Liability Company Act as found in “Corporation: Covering Corporation Practice, Procedure, Law—Aspen Law & Business,” as supplemented through             , 20    ; (ii) the Delaware Statutory Trust Act as found in “Delaware Code Annotated, Volume 7A, 2007 Volume - Michie;” and (iii) as to each of CarMax, the Depositor and the Issuing Entity’s existence in the State of Delaware, a copy of the certificate of formation of each of CarMax and the Depositor and a copy of the certificate of trust of the Issuing Entity, each as supplied to us by the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, each of CarMax, the Depositor and the Issuing Entity is a registered organization (as such term is defined in the New York UCC) formed under the laws of the State of Delaware. For the purposes of this opinion, we have assumed that each of CarMax, the Depositor and the Issuing Entity is organized solely under the laws of the State of Delaware. Each of CarMax, the Depositor and the Issuing Entity is, therefore, located, for purposes of Article 9 of the New York UCC, in the State of Delaware and the local law of Delaware governs perfection by the filing of a financing statement of a nonpossessory security interest in the Receivables granted by CarMax, the Depositor and the Issuing Entity.

 

2. Assuming the Receivables are created under, and are evidenced solely by, retail installment sale contracts in the form attached to the Receivables Purchase Agreement as Exhibit B, and assuming they are completed in their entirety and executed and there is nothing that would prevent them from being enforceable, then the Receivables will constitute “tangible chattel paper” as such term is defined in Article 9 of the New York UCC.

 

3. When each of the Receivables Purchase Agreement and the First Step Bill of Sale has been duly executed and delivered by all parties thereto and when value has been given as provided in Section 9-203(b)(1) of the New York UCC with respect to the Receivables, the Depositor will have a valid and enforceable security interest in such Receivables and identifiable cash proceeds thereof. When, in addition to the foregoing, the First Step Financing Statement has been duly filed in the office of the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, the security interest in favor of the Depositor in such Receivables and identifiable cash proceeds thereof will be perfected.

 

4. When each of the Receivables Purchase Agreement, the First Step Bill of Sale and the Sale and Servicing Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by all parties thereto and when value has been given as provided in Section 9-203(b)(1) of the New York UCC with respect to the Receivables, the Issuing Entity will have a valid and enforceable security interest in such Receivables and the identifiable cash proceeds thereof. When, in addition to the foregoing, each of the First Step Financing Statement and the Second Step Financing Statement has been duly filed in the office of the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, the security interest in favor of the Issuing Entity in such Receivables and identifiable cash proceeds thereof will be perfected.

 

Ex. E-1


5. When each of the Basic Documents has been duly executed and delivered by all parties thereto and when value has been given as provided in Section 9-203(b)(1) of the New York UCC with respect to the Receivables, the Indenture Trustee will have a valid and enforceable security interest in such Receivables and the identifiable cash proceeds thereof. When, in addition to the foregoing, all of the Financing Statements have been duly filed in the office of the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, the security interest in favor of the Indenture Trustee in such Receivables and identifiable cash proceeds thereof will be perfected.

 

6. Under the New York UCC, a nonpossessory security interest in tangible chattel paper can be perfected by the filing of a financing statement only in the jurisdiction where the debtor is located. Because each of CarMax, the Depositor and the Issuing Entity is located in Delaware for purposes of the New York UCC, Delaware is the only jurisdiction in which a financing statement could be filed to perfect a nonpossessory security interest in the rights of CarMax, the Depositor and the Issuing Entity in the Receivables. Therefore, to the extent a financing statement was filed there, the office of the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware constitutes the only filing office from which UCC Search Reports must be reviewed to determine whether another nonpossessory security interest in the rights of CarMax, the Depositor or the Issuing Entity in the Receivables exists which was perfected by filing. We have not reviewed any UCC search reports other than the UCC Search Reports.

 

7. Based solely on our review of the UCC Search Reports and assuming the Terminated Financing Statements are duly filed in the office of the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, the respective security interests of the Depositor, the Issuing Entity and the Indenture Trustee in the Receivables and identifiable cash proceeds thereof are subject to no equal or prior security interest perfected by filing a financing statement under the Delaware UCC. To the extent the Receivables constitute “tangible chattel paper” under the New York UCC, the local law of the jurisdiction in which the Receivables are physically located governs the effect of perfection or non-perfection and the priority of a nonpossessory security interest in the Receivables. For purposes of our opinion, we have assumed that the UCC provisions governing the effect of perfection or non-perfection and the priority of nonpossessory security interests in tangible chattel paper as in effect in each jurisdiction in which the Receivables are physically located, and the interpretation of such provisions in each such jurisdiction, are identical to the corresponding provisions and interpretations under the New York UCC.

 

Ex. E-2


8. When each of the Basic Documents has been duly executed and delivered by all parties thereto, and value has been given as provided in Section 9-203(b)(1) of the New York UCC with respect to the Collection Account and the Note Payment Account (collectively, the “Accounts”), the Indenture Trustee will have a valid and enforceable security interest in the Accounts and the identifiable cash proceeds thereof and such security interest will be perfected under the New York UCC. For the purposes of this opinion, we have also assumed that each Account is a “deposit account” as defined in the New York UCC, that such Account is maintained with the Indenture Trustee and that the Indenture Trustee is a “bank” as defined in the New York UCC. To the extent each Account constitutes a “securities account” as defined in the New York UCC, and when each of the Financing Statements has been duly filed in the office of the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, the security interest of the Indenture Trustee in the Accounts and identifiable cash proceeds thereof has been perfected.]
