Notwithstanding any term or provision of this Agreement, the Collateral Agent shall not incur any liability to the Trust or the Secured Parties for any action taken or omitted by the Collateral Agent in connection with the Collateral, except for gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the Collateral Agent, and, further, the Collateral Agent shall not incur any liability to the Secured Parties except for gross negligence or willful misconduct in carrying out its duties to the Secured Parties. Subject to Section 4.04, the Collateral Agent shall be protected and shall incur no liability to any such party in relying upon the accuracy, acting in reliance upon the contents, and assuming the genuineness of any notice, demand, certificate, signature, instrument or other document reasonably believed by the Collateral Agent to be genuine and to have been duly executed by the appropriate signatory, and (absent actual knowledge to the contrary by a Responsible Officer of the Collateral Agent) the Collateral Agent shall not be required to make any independent investigation with respect thereto. The Collateral Agent shall at all times be free independently to establish to its reasonable satisfaction, but shall have no duty to independently verify, the existence or nonexistence of facts that are a condition to the exercise or enforcement of any right or remedy hereunder or under any of the Transaction Documents. The Collateral Agent may consult with counsel, and shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it hereunder in good faith and in accordance with the written advice of such counsel. The Collateral Agent shall not be under any obligation to expend or risk its own funds or otherwise incur financial liability in the performance of any of its duties hereunder, or to exercise any of the remedial rights or powers vested in it by this Agreement or to follow any direction from the Controlling Party unless it shall have received reasonable security or indemnity satisfactory to the Collateral Agent against the costs, expenses and liabilities which might be incurred by it in connection therewith.

Section 4.04 Reliance upon Documents. In the absence of bad faith or negligence on its part, the Collateral Agent shall be entitled to rely on any communication, instrument, paper or other document reasonably believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed or sent by the proper Person or Persons and shall have no liability in acting, or omitting to act, where such action or omission to act is in reasonable reliance upon any statement or opinion contained in any such document or instrument.

Section 4.05 Successor Collateral Agent.

(a) Merger. Any Person into which the Collateral Agent may be converted or merged, or with which it may be consolidated, or to which it may sell or transfer its trust business and assets as a whole or substantially as a whole, or any Person resulting from any such conversion, merger, consolidation, sale or transfer to which the Collateral Agent

 

27


is a party, shall (provided it is otherwise qualified to serve as the Collateral Agent hereunder) be and become a successor Collateral Agent hereunder and be vested with all of the title to and interest in the Collateral and all of the trusts, powers, discretions, immunities, privileges and other matters as was its predecessor without the execution or filing of any instrument or any further act, deed or conveyance on the part of any of the parties hereto, anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, except to the extent, if any, that any such action is necessary to perfect, or continue the perfection of, the security interest of the Secured Parties in the Collateral.

(b) Resignation. The Collateral Agent and any successor Collateral Agent may resign only (i) upon a determination that by reason of a change in legal requirements the performance of its duties under this Agreement would cause it to be in violation of such legal requirements in a manner which would result in a material adverse effect on the Collateral Agent, and the Controlling Party does not elect to waive the Collateral Agent’s obligation to perform those duties which render it legally unable to act or elect to delegate those duties to another Person, or (ii) with the prior written consent of the Controlling Party, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld. The Collateral Agent shall give not less than 60 days’ prior written notice of any such permitted resignation by registered or certified mail to the other Secured Party and the Trust; provided, that such resignation shall take effect only upon the date which is the latest of (i) the effective date of the appointment of a successor Collateral Agent and the acceptance in writing by such successor Collateral Agent of such appointment and of its obligation to perform its duties hereunder in accordance with the provisions hereof, (ii) delivery of the Collateral to such successor to be held in accordance with the procedures specified in Article II hereof, and (iii) receipt by the Controlling Party of an Opinion of Counsel to the effect described in Section 5.02. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, if by the contemplated date of resignation specified in the written notice of resignation delivered as described above no successor Collateral Agent or temporary successor Collateral Agent has been appointed Collateral Agent and accepted such appointment or becomes the Collateral Agent pursuant to subsection (d) hereof, the resigning Collateral Agent may petition a court of competent jurisdiction in New York, New York for the appointment of a successor.

(c) Removal. The Collateral Agent may be removed by the Controlling Party at any time, with or without cause, by an instrument or concurrent instruments in writing delivered to the Collateral Agent, the other Secured Party and the Issuer. A temporary successor may be removed at any time to allow a successor Collateral Agent to be appointed pursuant to subsection (d) below. Any removal pursuant to the provisions of this subsection (c) shall take effect only upon the date which is the latest of (i) the effective date of the appointment of a successor Collateral Agent and the acceptance in writing by the successor Collateral Agent of such appointment and of its obligation to perform its duties hereunder in accordance with the provisions hereof, (ii) delivery of the Collateral to such successor to be held in accordance with the procedures specified in Article II hereof and (iii) receipt by the Controlling Party of an Opinion of Counsel to the effect described in Section 5.02.

 

28


(d) Acceptance by Successor. The Controlling Party shall have the sole right to appoint each successor Collateral Agent. Every temporary or permanent successor Collateral Agent appointed hereunder shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to its predecessor and to each Secured Party and the Trust an instrument in writing accepting such appointment hereunder and the relevant predecessor shall execute, acknowledge and deliver such other documents and instruments as will effectuate the delivery of all Collateral to the successor Collateral Agent to be held in accordance with the procedures specified in Article II hereof, whereupon such successor, without any further act, deed or conveyance, shall become fully vested with all the estates, properties, rights, powers, duties and obligations of its predecessor. Such predecessor shall, nevertheless, on the written request of either Secured Party or the Trust, execute and deliver an instrument transferring to such successor all the estates, properties, rights and powers of such predecessor hereunder. In the event that any instrument in writing from the Trust or a Secured Party is reasonably required by a successor Collateral Agent to more fully and certainly vest in such successor the estates, properties, rights, powers, duties and obligations vested or intended to be vested hereunder in such Collateral Agent, any and all such written instruments shall, at the request of the temporary or permanent successor Collateral Agent, be forthwith executed, acknowledged and delivered by the Issuer. The designation of any successor Collateral Agent and the instrument or instruments removing any Collateral Agent and appointing a successor hereunder, together with all other instruments provided for herein, shall be maintained with the records relating to the Collateral and, to the extent required by applicable law, filed or recorded by the successor Collateral Agent in each place where such filing or recording is necessary to effect the transfer of the Collateral to the successor Collateral Agent or to protect or continue the perfection of the security interests granted hereunder.

Section 4.06 Indemnification. The Trust shall indemnify the Collateral Agent, its directors, officers, employees and agents for, and hold the Collateral Agent, its directors, officers, employees and agents harmless against, any loss, liability or expense (including the costs and expenses of defending against any claim of liability) arising out of or in connection with the Collateral Agent’s acting as Collateral Agent hereunder, except such loss, liability or expense as shall result from the gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of the Collateral Agent or its officers, employees, directors or agents. The obligation of the Trust under this Section shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the resignation or removal of any Collateral Agent. The Collateral Agent covenants and agrees that the obligations of the Trust hereunder and under Section 4.07 shall be limited to the amounts distributed pursuant to Section 5.7(a)(iii) of the Sale and Servicing Agreement and Section 3.03(b) of this Agreement, and further covenants not to take any action to enforce its rights to indemnification hereunder with respect to the Trust and to payment under Section 4.07, or otherwise to assert any Lien or take any other action in respect of the Collateral, until the Final Termination Date.

Section 4.07 Compensation and Reimbursement. The Trust agrees for the benefit of the Secured Parties and as part of the Secured Obligations (a) to pay to the Collateral Agent, from time to time, reasonable compensation for all services rendered by

 

29


it hereunder (which compensation shall not be limited by any provision of law in regard to the compensation of a collateral trustee); and (b) to reimburse the Collateral Agent upon its request for all reasonable expenses, disbursements and advances incurred or made by the Collateral Agent in accordance with any provision of, or carrying out its duties and obligations under, this Agreement (including the reasonable compensation and fees and the expenses and disbursements of its agents, any independent certified public accountants and independent counsel), except any expense, disbursement or advances as may be attributable to gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct on the part of the Collateral Agent.

(d) Valid and Binding Agreement. Wells Fargo has duly executed and delivered this Agreement and each other Transaction Document to which it is a party, and each of this Agreement and each such other Transaction Document constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of Wells Fargo, enforceable against Wells Fargo, in accordance with its terms, except as (i) such enforceability may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization and similar laws relating to or affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and (ii) the availability of equitable remedies may be limited by equitable principles of general applicability.

Section 4.09 Waiver of Setoffs. The Collateral Agent hereby expressly waives any and all rights of setoff that the Collateral Agent may otherwise at any time have under applicable law with respect to the Spread Account and agrees that amounts in the Spread Account shall at all times be held and applied solely in accordance with the provisions hereof.

The Trust will do, execute, acknowledge and deliver, or cause to be done, executed, acknowledged and delivered, such instruments of transfer or take such other steps or actions as may be necessary, or required by the Controlling Party, to perfect the Security Interests granted hereunder in the Collateral, to ensure that such Security Interests rank prior to all other Liens and to preserve the priority of such Security Interests and the validity and enforceability thereof.

Such Opinion of Counsel shall further describe each execution and filing of any financing statements and continuation statements and such other actions as will, in the opinion of such counsel, be required to perfect, maintain and protect the lien and security interest of the Collateral Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, with respect to the Collateral against all creditors of and purchasers from the Trust for a period, specified in such Opinion, continuing until a date not earlier than eighteen months from the date of such Opinion.

Section 5.04 Waiver of Stay or Extension Laws; Marshaling of Assets. The Trust covenants, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, that it will not at any time insist upon, plead, or in any manner whatsoever claim or take the benefit or advantage of, any appraisement, valuation, stay, extension or redemption law wherever enacted, now or at any time hereafter in force, in order to prevent or hinder the enforcement of this Agreement or any absolute sale of the Collateral or any part thereof, or the possession thereof by any purchaser at any sale under Article VII of this Agreement; and the Trust, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, for itself and all who may claim under it, hereby waives the benefit of all such laws, and covenants that it will not hinder, delay or impede the execution of any power herein granted to the Collateral Agent, but will suffer and permit the execution of every such power as though no such law had been enacted.

Section 6.03 Rights of Secured Parties. The Non-Controlling Party at any time expressly agrees that it shall not assert any rights that it may otherwise have, as a Secured Party with respect to the Collateral, to direct the maintenance, sale or other disposition of the Collateral or any portion thereof, notwithstanding the occurrence and continuance of any Default or any nonperformance by the Trust of any obligation owed to such Secured Party hereunder or under any other Transaction Document, and each party hereto agrees that the Controlling Party shall be the only Person entitled to assert and exercise such rights.

The Controlling Party shall, at all times, be free independently to establish to its reasonable satisfaction the existence or nonexistence, as the case may be, of any fact the existence or nonexistence of which shall be a condition to the exercise or enforcement of any right or remedy under this Agreement or any of the Transaction Documents.

Section 7.03 Restoration of Rights and Remedies. If the Collateral Agent has instituted any proceeding to enforce any right or remedy under this Agreement, and such proceeding has been discontinued or abandoned for any reason, or has been determined adversely to the Collateral Agent, then and in every such case the Trust, the Collateral Agent and each of the Secured Parties 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 Secured Parties shall continue as though no such proceeding had been instituted.

Section 7.04 No Remedy Exclusive. No right or remedy herein conferred upon or reserved to the Collateral Agent, the Controlling Party or any of the Secured Parties is intended to be exclusive of any other right or remedy, and every right or 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, in equity or otherwise (but, in each case, shall be subject to the provisions of this Agreement limiting such remedies), and each and every right, power and remedy whether specifically herein given or otherwise existing may be exercised from time to time and as often and in such order as may be deemed expedient by the Controlling Party, and the exercise of or the beginning of the exercise of any right or power or remedy shall not be construed to be a waiver of the right to exercise at the same time or thereafter any other right, power or remedy.

Section 8.02 Waiver. Any waiver by any party of any provision of this Agreement or any right, remedy or option hereunder shall only prevent and estop such party from thereafter enforcing such provision, right, remedy or option if such waiver is given in writing and only as to the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which such waiver was given. The failure or refusal of any party hereto to insist in any one or more instances, or in a course of dealing, upon the strict performance of any of the terms or provisions of this Agreement by any party hereto or the partial exercise of any right, remedy or option hereunder shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of any such term or provision, but the same shall continue in full force and effect.

Section 8.03 Amendments; Waivers. No amendment, modification, waiver or supplement to this Agreement or any provision of this Agreement shall in any event be effective unless the same shall have been made or consented to in writing by each of the parties hereto and each Rating Agency shall have received prior written notice from the Trust with respect to such amendment, modification, waiver or supplement; notwithstanding the foregoing, for so long as Assured Guaranty shall be the Controlling Party, amendments, modifications, waivers or supplements hereto, the Collateral or the Spread Account or any requirement hereunder to deposit or retain any amounts in such Spread Account or to distribute any amounts therein as provided in Section 3.03 shall be effective if made or consented to in writing by Assured Guaranty, the Trust and the Collateral Agent (the consent of which shall not be withheld or delayed with respect to any amendment that does not adversely affect the Collateral Agent), but shall in no circumstances require the consent of the Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent or the Noteholders.

The parties hereto further agree that the holding by any court of competent jurisdiction that any remedy pursued by the Collateral Agent, or any of the Secured Parties, hereunder is unavailable or unenforceable
