(b)           The Servicer will be required to purchase or cause to be purchased a 2014-1 Vehicle before the Maturity Date of the related 2014-1 Lease and remit to the 2014-1 SUBI Collection Account an amount equal to the Securitization Value of that 2014-1 Lease as of the effective date of termination if the Servicer agrees with the related Lessee to a change in the Lease Rate applicable to that 2014-1 Vehicle and that change results in a change to the Contract Residual Value and/or the related Lease Term.
 

2.3.      Representations, Reallocation and Repurchase of 2014-1 Leases and 2014-1 Vehicles.
 
(a)           The Servicer hereby makes to the other parties hereto and the parties to the SUBI Trust Agreement the representations and warranties contained in Section 2.15 hereof as to each 2014-1 Lease and 2014-1 Vehicle as of the Vehicle Representation Date.  The Servicer also hereby represents and warrants that aside from the selection criteria included in such representations and warranties it used no adverse selection procedures in selecting any of the 2014-1 Leases for inclusion in the 2014-1 SUBI and that aside from such criteria it is not aware of any bias in the selection of the 2014-1 Leases which would cause delinquencies or losses on the 2014-1 Leases to be worse than any other Leases held by the Vehicle Trust; provided, however, that the Servicer can make no assurance as to the actual delinquencies or losses on the 2014-1 Leases other than as specifically set forth in Section 2.15.

Upon discovery by the Vehicle Trustee or the Servicer or upon notice to a Responsible Officer of the Indenture Trustee that any such representation or warranty was incorrect as of the date hereof and materially and adversely affects the interests of the Trust in the related 2014-1 Lease or 2014-1 Vehicle, the party discovering such incorrectness (if other than the Servicer) shall give prompt written notice to the Servicer.  Within 60 days after the Servicer’s discovery of such incorrectness or receipt of the foregoing notice, the Servicer shall cure in all material respects the circumstance or condition as to which the representation or warranty was incorrect as of the date hereof.  If the Servicer is unable or unwilling to do so within such period, it shall promptly (i) deposit or cause to be deposited into the SUBI Collection Account an amount equal to the Reallocation Payment and (ii) direct the Vehicle Trustee to cause such 2014-1 Vehicle and the related 2014-1 Lease to be conveyed to the Servicer as described in Section 2.3(h) below.  Such deposit of the Reallocation Payment shall satisfy the Servicer’s obligations pursuant to this Section, shall be deemed to constitute payment in full of the Reallocation Payment with respect thereto and shall cure any incorrectness of the related representation or warranty for purposes of this Agreement.  The Vehicle Trustee shall have no duty to conduct any affirmative investigation as to the occurrence of any condition requiring the repurchase of any 2014-1 Vehicle or 2014-1 Lease pursuant to this Section 2.3(a) or the eligibility of any 2014-1 Vehicle or related 2014-1 Lease for purposes of the SUBI Trust Agreement.
 
(b)           [Reserved].
 
(c)           The Servicer shall be required to repurchase a 2014-1 Vehicle and the related 2014-1 Lease and remit to the related 2014-1 SUBI Collection Account a Reallocation Payment for such 2014-1 Vehicle and 2014-1 Lease if the related Lessee moves to a state that is not a Trust State and such state does not become a Trust State within 90 days after the Servicer has become aware of such move.  The Reallocation Payment must be made by the Servicer on the next Deposit Date following the end of such 90-day period.
 
(d)           The Servicer shall be required to pay to the Trust any Monthly Payments (less any unearned rent charges calculated under the scheduled actuarial method) that have been forgiven in connection with a 2014-1 Lease pursuant to any new lease incentive program.
 
(e)           The sole remedy of the Trust, the Related Beneficiary, the Holder and the Registered Pledgee with respect to events causing the Servicer to repurchase certain 2014-1 Vehicles as provided herein, shall be to require the Servicer to make the payment of the Reallocation Payment, as set forth herein.  The obligation of the Servicer under this Section shall survive any termination of the Servicer hereunder.
 
(f)           The Servicer may purchase a Matured Vehicle at any time.  In connection with the purchase by the Servicer of a Matured Vehicle pursuant to this Section, with respect to the related 2014-1 Lease, in the event that (i) no Sales Proceeds Advance has been made, the purchase price of such Matured Vehicle will equal the
 

 
12

 


Contract Residual Value of such 2014-1 Lease as of the date of expiration and (ii) a Sales Proceeds Advance has been made, no additional amounts need be remitted by the Servicer except the excess of the Contract Residual Value over the ALG Residual Value; provided, however, that the Servicer shall relinquish all rights to reimbursement of any such Sales Proceeds Advance.
 
(g)           Immediately prior to the sale or disposition of a Matured Vehicle, a Defaulted Vehicle or a 2014-1 Vehicle related to an Early Termination Lease, the Servicer (so long as the Servicer is BMW FS) may reallocate such Matured Vehicle, Defaulted Vehicle or 2014-1 Vehicle related to an Early Termination Lease from the 2014-1 SUBI to the UTI for purposes of implementing the Servicer’s Like-Kind Exchange Program.  In connection with such reallocation, the Servicer will cause to be deposited into the 2014-1 SUBI Collection Account an amount equal to Sales Proceeds (in lieu of actual Sales Proceeds) no later than two Business Days after such reallocation, or, if the Monthly Remittance Condition is met, the Servicer shall be permitted to retain such amounts until such amounts are required to be disbursed on the next Payment Date. Upon receipt of an amount equal to Sales Proceeds with respect to each such Matured Vehicle, Defaulted Vehicle or 2014-1 Vehicle related to an Early Termination Lease, the 2014-1 SUBI shall have no claim against or interest in such Matured Vehicle, Defaulted Vehicle or 2014-1 Vehicle related to an Early Termination Lease.
 
(h)           Upon the purchase by the Servicer of a 2014-1 Vehicle and the related 2014-1 Lease pursuant to this Section, the Trust or the Vehicle Trustee on behalf of the Trust, as applicable, shall be deemed to transfer, assign, set over and otherwise convey to the Servicer, without recourse, representation or warranty, all right, title and interest of the Trust in, to and under such 2014-1 Vehicle and the related 2014-1 Lease, all monies due or to become due with respect thereto after the date of such repurchase and all proceeds thereof.  The Vehicle Trustee shall, at the written direction and expense of the Servicer, execute such documents and instruments of transfer or assignment and take such other actions as shall reasonably be requested by the Servicer to effect the conveyance of each such 2014-1 Vehicle and the related 2014-1 Lease pursuant to this Section, including the execution for filing by the Servicer with the related Registrar of Titles of an application for transfer of ownership of each such 2014-1 Vehicle to the Servicer.
 
2.4.      Collections and Payment Date Advance Reimbursement.
 
(a)           The Servicer shall, with respect to SUBI Collections and amounts in respect of the 2014-1 SUBI Certificate, remit to the 2014-1 SUBI Collection Account (i) all Monthly Payments, (ii) all deposits required by Section 2.2 of the Basic Servicing Agreement, (iii) all Reallocation Payments pursuant to Sections 2.2 or 2.3 above, (iv) all Advances, (v) any Pull-Ahead Amounts, (vi) any Recovery Proceeds and (vii) any Sales Proceeds or Termination Proceeds from the disposition of a Matured Vehicle at auction or through sale to a dealer (it being understood that, with respect to Sales Proceeds, the Servicer shall not be obligated to remit the actual Sales Proceeds for 2014-1 Vehicles removed from the Issuer under the Like-Kind Exchange Program, but instead such Sales
 

 
13

 


Proceeds shall be held by the Qualified Intermediary and the Servicer will remit an amount equal to such Sales Proceeds with respect to each 2014-1 Vehicle or 2014-1 Lease subject to the Like-Kind Exchange Program as provided above), in each case, on the Business Day prior to the Payment Date for so long as the Monthly Remittance Condition is satisfied.  So long as the Monthly Remittance Condition is satisfied, the Servicer will remit all such amounts described in the preceding sentence within two Business Days of receipt to an account established and maintained by BMW Capital. If the Monthly Remittance Condition is not satisfied, SUBI Collections will be deposited into the 2014-1 SUBI Collection Account within two Business Days of receipt. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, so long as BMW FS is the Servicer, BMW FS may withhold from the deposit into the 2014-1 SUBI Collection Account any amounts indicated on the related Payment Date Certificate as being due and payable to the Servicer.  Notwithstanding Section 2.11 of the Basic Servicing Agreement, Insurance Proceeds shall be remitted in accordance with this Section 2.4(a).
 
Pending deposit into the 2014-1 SUBI Collection Account, SUBI Collections may be employed by the Servicer at its own risk and for its own benefit and shall not be segregated from its own funds; provided, that the Servicer shall be permitted to apply Sales Proceeds for the acquisitions of leases and vehicles through the Like-Kind Exchange Program, in which case it shall remit an amount equal to Sales Proceeds with respect to each 2014-1 Vehicle or 2014-1 Lease subject to the Like-Kind Exchange Program no later than two Business Days after such reallocation, or, if the Monthly Remittance Condition is met, the Servicer shall be permitted to retain such amount received during a Collection Period until the Business Day immediately preceding the next Payment Date.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein or in the Vehicle Trust Agreement, amounts in the escrow account established pursuant to the Like-Kind Exchange Program shall not be subject to any lien so long as there is no Indenture Default under the Indenture.
 
(b)           The Servicer shall prepare and deliver the Payment Date Certificate as provided in Section 8.03 of the Indenture.  Pursuant to the Payment Date Certificate, the Servicer shall allocate Available Funds on deposit in the 2014-1 SUBI Collection Account with respect to the related Collection Period and instruct the Indenture Trustee to make, no later than 3:00 p.m. New York City time, on each Payment Date, the following deposits and distributions in the following amounts and order of priority:
 
(i)           to the Servicer the sum of any outstanding Advances which have been outstanding as of the end of the related Collection Period for at least 90 days, and with respect to 2014-1 Vehicles that have become Residual Value Loss Vehicles during the related Collection Period, the aggregate Sales Proceeds Advances over the aggregate Sales Proceeds and Termination Proceeds (collectively, the “Payment Date Advance Reimbursement”);
 

 
14

 



 
(ii)           to or on behalf of the Servicer, the Servicing Fee in respect of the related Collection Period, together with any unpaid Servicing Fees in respect of one or more prior Collection Periods; and
 
(iii)           to the Note Distribution Account, the Reserve Fund and Certificate Distribution Account, such distributions in the amounts and order of priority as set forth in Sections 8.04(a), 5.04 and 10.01 of the Indenture.
 
(c)           No trust account will be established to segregate any Payahead Amounts received by Lessees.
 
2.5.      Net Deposits.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Servicing Supplement, for so long as BMW FS is the Servicer, the Servicer shall be permitted to deposit into the 2014-1 SUBI Collection Account only the net amount distributable to the Issuer, as holder of the 2014-1 SUBI Certificate, on the related Deposit Date.  The Servicer shall, however, account to the Issuer, the Vehicle Trustee, the Indenture Trustee (or any successor to the duties of the Indenture Trustee), the Owner Trustee and the Noteholders as if all of the deposits and distributions described herein were made individually.
 
2.6.      Servicing Compensation.
 
(a)           As compensation for the performance of its obligations under this Servicing Supplement, the Servicer shall be entitled to receive the Servicing Fee with respect to the 2014-1 SUBI Assets.  This Section 2.6(a) replaces Section 2.5(a) of the Basic Servicing Agreement with respect to the 2014-1 SUBI Assets.
 
(b)           The Servicer shall also be entitled to additional servicing compensation with respect to the 2014-1 SUBI Assets in the form of expense reimbursement and any other administrative fees or similar charges under the 2014-1 Leases, including but not limited to any late payment fees now or later in effect, extension fees and early termination fees.
 
2.7.      Advances.
 
(a)           On each Deposit Date, the Servicer will, subject to 2.7(c) make, by deposit into the SUBI Collection Account, a Monthly Payment Advance in respect of the unpaid Monthly Payment of a 2014-1 Lease.
 
(b)           On each Deposit Date, the Servicer may, in its sole discretion, subject to Section 2.7(c), make, by deposit into the 2014-1 SUBI Collection Account, Sales Proceeds Advances.  After the Servicer has made a Sales Proceeds Advance with respect to a 2014-1 Vehicle, the Issuer shall have no claim against or interest in such 2014-1 Vehicle or any Sales Proceeds or Termination Proceeds, as the case may be, resulting from the sale or other disposition thereof.  If the Servicer shall sell or otherwise
 

 
15

 


dispose of a 2014-1 Vehicle after having made a Sales Proceeds Advance, the Issuer may retain all of such Sales Proceeds Advance, and the Servicer shall retain the related Sales Proceeds or Termination Proceeds, as the case may be, up to the Securitization Value of the related Lease, and will deposit any Sales Proceeds or Termination Proceeds, as the case may be, in excess of the Securitization Value into the SUBI Collection Account.  If the Servicer has not sold a 2014-1 Vehicle within 90 days after it has made a Sales Proceeds Advance, it shall be reimbursed for such Sales Proceeds Advance as part of the Payment Date Advance Reimbursement in accordance with Section 2.4(b)(i).  Within six months of receiving that reimbursement, if the related 2014-1 Vehicle has not been sold, the Servicer shall, if permitted by applicable law, cause such 2014-1 Vehicle to be sold at auction and shall remit the proceeds associated with the disposition of such 2014-1 Vehicle to the 2014-1 SUBI Collection Account, except as otherwise provided in Section 2.3(g).
 
(c)           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Servicing Agreement, the Servicer shall be required to make Advances only to the extent that it determines that such Advance will be recoverable from future payments on or in respect of the related 2014-1 Lease or 2014-1 Vehicle.
 
2.8.      Third Party Claims.  The Servicer shall immediately notify the Depositor (in the event that BMW FS is not acting as Servicer), the Issuer, the Vehicle Trustee and the Indenture Trustee (or any successor to the duties of the Indenture Trustee) upon learning of a claim or Lien of whatever kind of a third party that would materially and adversely affect the interests of the Depositor, the Issuer or the Trust with respect to the 2014-1 SUBI Assets.
 
2.9.      Contingent and Excess Liability Insurance Policies.  So long as any Securities are outstanding, the Servicer shall maintain and pay when due all premiums with respect to the Contingent and Excess Liability Insurance Policies unless termination of any Contingent and Excess Liability Policy will not reduce the Servicer’s insurance coverage below the $10 million minimum and the Rating Agency Condition is satisfied with respect to such termination.  The Servicer shall maintain such Contingent and Excess Liability Insurance Policies that provide insurance coverage of at least $10 million per accident and permit multiple claims in any policy period.
 
2.10.      Reporting by the Servicer; Delivery of Certain Documentation.
 
(a)           On or prior to the Closing Date, and periodically thereafter as required in order to update the contents thereof upon any changes in the matters certified therein, the Servicer shall furnish to the Vehicle Trustee, the Indenture Trustee, the Holder and the Registered Pledgee an Officer’s Certificate listing the officers of the Servicer involved in, or responsible for, the servicing of the 2014-1 Leases.
 
(b)           On or before each Determination Date, the Servicer shall, in addition to the information required in Section 3.1 of the Basic Servicing Agreement, include in the Officer’s Certificate provided for in such Section the amount of any
 

 
16

 


reimbursement being requested pursuant to such Section for the related Collection Period from the 2014-1 SUBI Collection Account.
 
2.11.      Annual Officer’s Certificate.  The Servicer shall deliver to the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee and shall make available to each Rating Agency, within 90 days after the end of the Servicer's fiscal year (commencing with the fiscal year 2014), an Officer's Certificate signed by a Responsible Officer of the Servicer, stating that (i) a review of the activities of the Servicer during the preceding 12-month period (or such shorter period in the case of the first such Officer's Certificate) and of the performance of its obligations under this Agreement has been made under such officer's supervision and (ii) to such officer's knowledge, based on such review, the Servicer has fulfilled all its obligations under this Agreement throughout such period or, if there has been a default in the fulfillment of any such obligation, specifying each such default known to such officer and the nature and status thereof.
 
2.12.      Assessment of Compliance and Annual Accountants’ Attestation.  (a)  Within 90 days after the end of the Servicer's fiscal year (commencing with the fiscal year 2014), the Servicer shall:
 
(i)           deliver to the Issuer and the Administrator a report regarding the Servicer’s assessment of compliance with the Servicing Criteria during the immediately preceding calendar year, as required under Rules 13a-18 and 15d-18 of the Exchange Act and Item 1122 of Regulation AB.  Such report shall be addressed to the Issuer and signed by an authorized officer of the Servicer, and shall address each of the Servicing Criteria specified on a certification substantially in the form of Exhibit C hereto delivered to the Issuer and the Administrator concurrently with the execution of this Agreement;
 
(ii)           deliver to the Issuer and the Administrator a report of a registered public accounting firm reasonably acceptable to the Issuer and the Administrator that attests to, and reports on, the assessment of compliance made by the Servicer and delivered pursuant to the preceding paragraph.  Such attestation shall be in accordance with Rules 1-02(a)(3) and 2-02(g) of Regulation S-X under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act;
 
(iii)           cause each Subservicer and each Subcontractor determined by the Servicer to be “participating in the servicing function” within the meaning of Item 1122 of Regulation AB, to deliver to the Issuer and the Administrator an assessment of compliance and accountants’ attestation as and when provided in paragraphs (i) and (ii) of this Section; and
 
(iv)           if requested by the Administrator, acting on behalf of the Issuer, deliver to the Issuer and the Administrator and any other Person that will be responsible for signing the certification (a “Sarbanes
 

 
17

 


Certification”) required by Rules 13a-14(d) and 15d-14(d) under the Exchange Act (pursuant to Section 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002) on behalf of an asset-backed issuer with respect to a securitization transaction a certification in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B.
 
The Servicer acknowledges that the parties identified in clause (a)(iv) above may rely on the certification provided by the Servicer pursuant to such clause in signing a Sarbanes Certification and filing such with the Commission.  The Administrator, acting on behalf of the Issuer, will not request delivery of a certification under clause (a)(iv) above unless the Depositor is required under the Exchange Act to file an annual report on Form 10-K with respect to an Issuer whose asset pool includes the 2014-1 SUBI Certificate.
 
(b)           Each assessment of compliance provided by a Subservicer pursuant to Section 2.16 shall address each of the Servicing Criteria specified on a certification to be delivered to the Servicer, Issuer and the Administrator on or prior to the date of such appointment.  An assessment of compliance provided by a Subcontractor pursuant to Section 2.12(a)(iii) need not address any elements of the Servicing Criteria other than those specified by the Servicer and the Issuer on the date of such appointment.
 
2.13.      Custody of Lease Documents and Certificates of Title.  To reduce administrative costs and ensure uniform quality in the servicing of the 2014-1 Leases and BMW FS’ own portfolio of leases, the Trust hereby appoints the Servicer as its agent, bailee and custodian of the 2014-1 Leases, the certificates of title relating to the 2014-1 Vehicles, the insurance policies and insurance records and other documents related to the 2014-1 Leases and the related Lessees and 2014-1 Vehicles.  Such documents will not be physically segregated from other leases, certificates of title, insurance policies and insurance records or other documents related to other leases and vehicles owned or serviced by the Servicer, including leases and vehicles which are not part of the 2014-1 SUBI Assets.  The accounting records and computer systems of BMW FS will reflect the allocation of the 2014-1 Leases and 2014-1 Vehicles to the SUBI, and the interest of the holders of the SUBI Certificate therein.  The Servicer may appoint one or more agents to act as subcustodians of certain items relating to the 2014-1 Leases, the certificates of title relating to the 2014-1 Vehicles, the insurance policies and insurance records and other documents related to the 2014-1 Leases and the related Lessees and 2014-1 Vehicles so long as the Servicer remains primarily responsible for their safekeeping.
 
2.14.      Servicer Defaults; Termination of Servicer.
 
(a)           Notwithstanding Section 4.1(a) of the Basic Servicing Agreement, the occurrence and continuation of any of the following shall constitute an Event of Default under the Servicing Agreement (each, a “Servicer Default”):
 
(i)           the Servicer shall fail to cause the delivery to the Indenture Trustee for distribution to the Noteholders, to the Owner Trustee for distribution to the Trust Certificateholders or to the Vehicle Trustee for distribution to holders of interests in the UTI, the SUBI or any Other
 

 
18

 


SUBI, any required payment, which failure continues for 5 Business Days after discovery of such failure by an officer of the Servicer or receipt by the Servicer of notice thereof from the Indenture Trustee, the Owner Trustee or Noteholders evidencing not less than a majority of the aggregate unpaid principal balance of the Notes, voting together as a single class; or
 
(ii)           the Servicer fails to duly observe or perform in any material respect any of its covenants or agreements in the Servicing Agreement not otherwise covered in this Section 2.14(a), which failure materially and adversely affects the rights of a Holder of the 2014-1 SUBI Certificate, the Noteholders or Trust Certificateholders, as applicable, and which continues unremedied for 90 days after receipt by the Servicer of written notice thereof from the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders evidencing not less than a majority of the aggregate unpaid principal balance of the Notes, or such default becomes known to the Servicer;
 
(iii)           any representation, warranty, or statement of the Servicer made in the Servicing Agreement, any other Basic Document to which the Servicer is a party or by which it is bound or any certificate, report or other writing delivered pursuant to the Servicing Agreement that proves to be incorrect in any material respect when made, which failure materially and adversely affects the rights of a Holder of the 2014-1 SUBI Certificate, the Noteholders or the Trust Certificateholders, continues unremedied for 90 days after receipt by the Servicer of written notice thereof from the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders evidencing not less than a majority of the aggregate unpaid principal balance of the Notes, or such default becomes known to the Servicer;
 
(iv)           the entry of a decree or order for relief by a court or regulatory authority having jurisdiction over the Servicer in an involuntary case under the federal bankruptcy laws, as now or hereafter in effect, or another present or future federal or state bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law, appointing a receiver, liquidator, assignee, trustee, custodian sequestrator or other similar official of the Servicer or of any substantial part of its property, the ordering the winding up or liquidation of the affairs of the Servicer and the continuance of any such decree or order unstayed and in effect for a period of 90 consecutive days; or
 
(v)           the commencement by the Servicer of a voluntary case under the federal bankruptcy laws, as now or hereafter in effect, or any other present or future or state bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law, or the consent by the Servicer to the appointment of or taking possession by a receiver, liquidator, assignee, trustee, custodian, sequestrator or other similar official of the Servicer or of any substantial part of its property or the making by the Servicer of an assignment for the benefit of creditors or
 

 
19

 


the failure by the Servicer generally to pay its debts as such debts become due or the taking of corporate action by the Servicer in furtherance of any of the foregoing.
 
provided, however, that any Servicer Default with respect to the 2014-1 SUBI shall not constitute an Event of Default with respect to any Other SUBI and any Event of Default (as such term is defined in the Basic Servicing Agreement) with respect to any Other SUBI shall constitute a Servicer Default or Event of Default (as such term is defined in the Basic Servicing Agreement) only with respect to such SUBI and not with respect to the 2014-1 SUBI.
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, delay in or failure of performance referred to under clause (iii) for a period of 120 days, under clause (i) for a period of 45 days or clause (iv) for a period of 60 days, will not constitute an Servicer Default if that failure or delay was caused by a Force Majeure.  Upon the occurrence of any such event, the Servicer will not be relieved from using all commercially reasonable efforts to perform its obligations in a timely manner in accordance with the terms of the Servicing Agreement, and the Servicer will provide to the Indenture Trustee, the Vehicle Trustee, the Depositor and the Securityholders prompt notice of such failure or delay by it, together with a description of its efforts to so perform its obligations.
 
(b)           Upon the occurrence and continuation of any Servicer Default under the Servicing Agreement, the Servicer shall provide to the Indenture Trustee, the Owner Trustee, and any Noteholders prompt notice of such failure or delay by it, together with a description of its efforts to so perform its obligations.  Upon the written direction of the Holder (which for this purpose shall be the Indenture Trustee acting at the direction of the Noteholders holding not less than the Required Percentage), the Vehicle Trustee shall waive any default by the Servicer in the performance of its duties under the Servicing Agreement and its consequences.  Upon the waiver of a past default, such default will cease to exist and any Servicer Default arising therefrom will be deemed to have been remedied.  No such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other default or impair any right consequent thereon.
 
(c)           In addition to the provisions of Section 4.1(b) of the Basic Servicing Agreement, if a Servicer Default shall have occurred and be continuing with respect to the 2014-1 SUBI, the Vehicle Trustee may, to the extent such Servicer Default relates to the SUBI Assets, upon the direction of the holder and pledgee of the SUBI Certificates, terminate all of the rights and obligations of the Servicer under the Servicing Agreement with respect to the SUBI Assets.  For purposes of the immediately preceding sentence, the holder of the SUBI Certificate will be the Indenture Trustee acting at the direction of Noteholders holding not less than the Required Percentage, so long as any Notes are outstanding.  In each case, upon written direction from the holder of the SUBI Certificate, the Vehicle Trustee will effect that termination by delivering notice thereof to the Servicer, with a copy made available to each Rating Agency and any rating agency rating any securities based on any Other SUBIs affected by that Servicer Default.
 

 
20

 



 
(d)           Upon the termination of the Servicer with respect to the SUBI Assets, the Servicer subject to that termination or removal will continue to perform its functions as Servicer, until the date a successor Servicer is appointed as Servicer under the Servicing Agreement.
 
(e)           In the event of a termination of the Servicer as a result of a Servicer Default with respect to the SUBI Assets only, the Vehicle Trustee, acting at the direction of the holder of the SUBI Certificate – which holder for this purpose will be the Indenture Trustee, acting at the direction of Noteholders holding not less than Required Percentage will appoint a successor Servicer.  The Vehicle Trustee will have the right to approve that successor Servicer, and that approval may not be unreasonably withheld.
 
(f)           Upon appointment of a successor Servicer, the successor Servicer shall assume all of the rights and obligations of the Servicer under the Servicing Agreement; provided, however, that no successor Servicer shall have any responsibilities with respect to making any Advance.  Any compensation payable to a successor Servicer may not be in excess of that permitted the predecessor Servicer.
 
(g)           In the event the Servicer is removed with respect to servicing the 2014-1 SUBI Assets, the Servicer shall be entitled to reimbursement for any outstanding Advances made pursuant to this Supplement, to the extent of the funds available therefore.
 
2.15.      Servicer Representations and Warranties.

2.16.      Appointment of Subservicer or Subcontractor.

The fees and expenses of any subservicer shall be as agreed between the Servicer and such subservicer from time to time, and none of the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee, the Issuer or the Securityholders shall have any responsibility therefor.
 
(b)           The Servicer shall cause any Subservicer used by the Servicer (or by any Subservicer) for the benefit of the Issuer to comply with the reporting and compliance provisions of this Agreement to the same extent as if such Subservicer were the Servicer, and to provide the information required with respect to such Subservicer as is required to file all required reports with the Commission.  The Servicer shall be responsible for obtaining from each Subservicer and delivering to the Issuer and the Administrator any servicer compliance statement required to be delivered by such Subservicer under Section 2.11, any assessment of compliance and attestation required to be delivered by such Subservicer under Section 2.12 and any certification required to be delivered to the Person that will be responsible for signing the Sarbanes Certification under Section 2.12(a)(iv) as and when required to be delivered.

25

 


Subservicer) for the benefit of the Issuer and the Depositor to comply with the reporting and compliance provisions of this Agreement to the same extent as if such Subcontractor were the Servicer.  The Servicer shall be responsible for obtaining from each Subcontractor and delivering to the Issuer and the Administrator any assessment of compliance and attestation required to be delivered by such Subcontractor, in each case as and when required to be delivered.
 
2.17.      Information to be Provided by the Servicer.
 
(a)           At the request of the Administrator, acting on behalf of the Issuer, for the purpose of satisfying its reporting obligation under the Exchange Act with respect to any class of asset-backed securities, the Servicer shall (or shall cause each Subservicer to) (i) notify the Issuer and the Administrator in writing of any material litigation or governmental proceedings pending against the Servicer or any Subservicer and (ii) provide to the Issuer and the Administrator a description of such proceedings.
 
(b)           As a condition to the succession to the Servicer or any Subservicer as servicer or subservicer under this Agreement by any Person (i) into which the Servicer or such Subservicer may be merged or consolidated, or (ii) which may be appointed as a successor to the Servicer or any Subservicer, the Servicer shall provide to the Issuer, the Administrator and the Depositor, at least 10 Business Days prior to the effective date of such succession or appointment, (x) written notice to the Issuer and the Administrator of such succession or appointment and (y) in writing and in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Issuer and the Administrator, all information reasonably requested by the Issuer or the Administrator, acting on behalf of the Issuer, in order to comply with its reporting obligation under Item 6.02 of Form 8-K with respect to any class of asset-backed securities.
 
(c)           In addition to such information as the Servicer, as servicer, is obligated to provide pursuant to other provisions of this Agreement, if so requested by the Issuer or the Administrator, acting on behalf of the Issuer, the Servicer shall provide such information regarding the performance or servicing of the 2014-1 Leases and 2014-1 Vehicles as is reasonably required to facilitate preparation of distribution reports in accordance with Item 1121 of Regulation AB.  Such information shall be provided concurrently with the monthly reports otherwise required to be delivered by the Servicer under this Agreement, commencing with the first such report due not less than ten Business Days following such request.
 
2.18.      Remedies.
 
(a)           The Servicer shall be liable to the Issuer, the Administrator and the Depositor for any monetary damages incurred as a result of the failure by the Servicer, any Subservicer or any Subcontractor to deliver any information, report, certification, attestation, accountants’ letter or other material when and as required under Article IV, including any failure by the Servicer to identify any Subcontractor “participating in the servicing function” within the meaning of Item 1122 of Regulation AB, and shall

reimburse the applicable party for all costs reasonably incurred by each such party in order to obtain the information, report, certification, accountants’ letter or other material not delivered as required by the Servicer, any Subservicer, or any Subcontractor.
 
(b)           The Servicer shall promptly reimburse the Issuer and the Administrator for all reasonable expenses incurred by the Issuer or Administrator as such are incurred, in connection with the termination of the Servicer as servicer and the transfer of servicing of the 2014-1 Leases and 2014-1 Vehicles to a successor servicer.  The provisions of this paragraph shall not limit whatever rights the Issuer or Administrator may have under other provisions of this Agreement or otherwise, whether in equity or at law, such as an action for damages, specific performance or injunctive relief.
 
2.19.      Purchase of the 2014-1 SUBI Certificate; Redemption of the Notes; Repayment of the Trust Certificates.
 
(a)           The Servicer shall be permitted at its option (the “Optional Purchase”) to purchase the 2014-1 SUBI Certificate from the Issuer on any Payment Date if, either before or after giving effect to any payment of principal required to be made on such Payment Date, the Note Balance is less than or equal to 5% of the Initial Note Balance.  The purchase price for the 2014-1 SUBI Certificate shall equal the sum of (i) the outstanding Note Balance, together with accrued interest thereon up to but not including such Payment Date, and (ii) the aggregate amount of any accrued and unpaid fees, expenses and indemnities due and owing to the Indenture Trustee and the Owner Trustee, in each case to the extent such fees, expenses and indemnities have not been previously paid by the Servicer (the “Optional Purchase Price”), which amount shall be deposited by the Servicer into the SUBI Collection Account on the Deposit Date related to such Payment Date.  If the Servicer exercises the Optional Purchase, the Notes shall be redeemed in whole, but not in part, on the related Payment Date at the Redemption Price.
 
(b)           Notice of any redemption of the Notes pursuant to this Section 2.19 shall be given by the Servicer or Administrator to the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee as soon as practicable.  The Administrator shall make notice of such redemption available to each Rating Agency.
 
(c)           Following the satisfaction and discharge of the Indenture and the payment in full of the principal of and interest on the Notes, the Trust Certificateholders will succeed to the rights of the Noteholders hereunder and the Owner Trustee will succeed to the rights of, and assume the obligations to make payments to Trust Certificateholders of, the Indenture Trustee pursuant to this Agreement.
 
2.20.      Servicer Not to Resign.
 
Subject to Sections 2.10 and 4.1(b) of the Basic Servicing Agreement, the Servicer shall not resign from the obligations and duties imposed on it by this Supplement as Servicer except upon a determination that the performance of its duties
 

 
27

 


under this Supplement shall no longer be permissible under applicable law.  Notice of any determination that the performance by the Servicer of its duties hereunder is no longer permitted under applicable law shall be communicated to the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee and the Vehicle Trustee at the earliest practicable time (and, if such communication is not in writing, shall be confirmed in writing at the earliest practicable time) and any such determination shall be evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel to such effect delivered by the Servicer to the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee and the Owner Trustee concurrently with or promptly after such notice. No resignation of the Servicer shall become effective until a successor Servicer acceptable to the Indenture Trustee, acting at the direction of the majority of Noteholders, has assumed the responsibilities and obligations of the resigning Servicer. If no Servicer has been appointed within 30 days of resignation or removal, or the date upon which any regulatory authority requires such resignation, the Indenture Trustee may petition any court of competent jurisdiction for such appointment.
 
2.21.      Pull-Ahead and Other Early Termination Marketing Programs.  The Servicer may, in its discretion, with respect to any 2014-1 Lease, permit the Lessee under the related 2014-1 Lease to terminate such 2014-1 Lease prior to its scheduled termination date as part of a “pull-ahead” or other marketing program; provided, however, that such early termination shall not be permitted unless all Pull-Ahead Amounts due and payable by the Lessee under such 2014-1 Lease on or before the date of such Lessee’s election to terminate the 2014-1 Lease have been paid by or on behalf of such Lessee and are deposited in the 2014-1 SUBI Collection Account within the time period thereafter stated in Section 2.4 of this Servicing Supplement. Following such early termination, the Servicer shall charge the related Lessee any applicable Excess Wear and Use Payments and Excess Mileage Payments in accordance with customary servicing practices with respect to Leases that are terminated early by the related Lessee in the absence of a “pull-ahead” or other marketing program.
