(a)           The 2014-B Exchange Note, together with the Administrative Agent’s certificate of authentication on the 2014-B Exchange Note, will be delivered in the form of a certificated note substantially in the form set forth as Exhibit A and will satisfy the requirements of Sections 4.01 and 4.02 of the Credit and Security Agreement.  The 2014-B Exchange Note may be Transferred only in whole and not in part.

 

(b)           Each of the Borrowers and the other parties to this Supplement will execute or acknowledge, as applicable, and the Borrowers will deliver to the Administrative Agent (i) the 2014-B Exchange Note for authentication and (ii) this Supplement, and following receipt thereof and satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 4.02(e) of the Credit and Security Agreement, the Administrative Agent will (A) acknowledge this Supplement and (B) authenticate and deliver the 2014-B Exchange Note in accordance with Section 4.02(f) of the Credit and Security Agreement.

(b)           Notwithstanding the foregoing, the entire unpaid Exchange Note Balance will be due and payable on the date on which an Exchange Note Default on the 2014-B Exchange Note has occurred and is continuing, and the 2014-B Exchange Noteholder has declared the 2014-B Exchange Note to be immediately due and payable in the manner provided in the Credit and Security Agreement.

REVERSE OF 2014-B EXCHANGE NOTE

 

This 2014-B Exchange Note is one of the duly authorized issue of Exchange Notes, which may be issued under the Credit and Security Agreement.  Reference is made to the Credit and Security Agreement and all Exchange Note Supplements that are supplemental to the Credit and Security Agreement for a statement of the respective rights and obligations of the Borrowers, the Lender, the Servicer, the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent and the Exchange Noteholders.  This 2014-B Exchange Note is subject to the Credit and Security Agreement and the Exchange Note Supplement.  In the event of a conflict between this 2014-B Exchange Note, the Credit and Security Agreement and the Exchange Note Supplement, the Exchange Note Supplement will prevail.

 

Interest on and principal of this 2014-B Exchange Note will be payable in accordance with the priority of payments set forth in Section 5.1 of the Exchange Note Supplement.

 

Principal of this 2014-B Exchange Note will be payable on each Payment Date in an amount equal to the Exchange Note Principal Payment Amount for that Payment Date.  “Payment Date” means the 15th day of each month or, if any such day is not a Business Day, the next Business Day, commencing in August 2014.

 

As described on the face of this 2014-B Exchange Note, the entire unpaid principal amount of this 2014-B Exchange Note will be due and payable on the Exchange Note Final Scheduled Payment Date.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the entire unpaid principal amount of this 2014-B Exchange Note will be due and payable on the date on which an Exchange Note Default on this 2014-B Exchange Note has occurred and is continuing and the 2014-B Exchange Noteholder has declared this 2014-B Exchange Note to be immediately due and payable in the manner provided in the Credit and Security Agreement.

 

Payments of interest on this 2014-B Exchange Note on each Payment Date, together with the installment of principal, if any, to the extent not in full payment of this 2014-B Exchange Note, will be made to the account of the 2014-B Exchange Noteholder either by wire transfer in immediately available funds, to the account of that 2014-B Exchange Noteholder or an account designated by the 2014-B Exchange Noteholder at a bank or other entity having appropriate facilities therefor if that 2014-B Exchange Noteholder has provided to the Exchange Note Registrar appropriate written instructions at least five Business Days prior to that Payment Date or, if not, by check mailed first-class mail postage prepaid to the 2014-B Exchange Noteholder’s address as it appears on the Exchange Note Register prior to that Payment Date, except that the final installment of principal payable on this 2014-B Exchange Note on a Payment Date or the Exchange Note Final Scheduled Payment Date will be payable only on the presentation and surrender of this 2014-B Exchange Note in the manner set forth in Section 4.06(b) of the Credit and Security Agreement.  Those payments will be made without requiring that this 2014-B Exchange Note be submitted for notation of payment.  Any reduction in the principal amount of this 2014-B Exchange Note effected by any payments made on any Payment Date or due to a reallocation of any Leases and Leased Vehicles from the 2014-B Reference Pool will be binding on all future 2014-B Exchange Noteholders of this 2014-B Exchange Note and of any 2014-B Exchange Note issued on the registration of transfer of this 2014-B Exchange Note or in exchange for or in lieu of this 2014-B Exchange Note, whether or not noted hereon.  If funds are expected to

 

EA-6



 

be available, as provided in the Exchange Note Supplement and the Credit and Security Agreement, for payment in full of the then remaining unpaid principal amount of this 2014-B Exchange Note on a Payment Date, then the Administrative Agent will notify the 2014-B Exchange Noteholder of the date on which the Borrowers expect that the final installment of principal of and interest on this 2014-B Exchange Note will be paid not later than five days prior to that date.  The notice will specify that the final installment will be payable only on presentation and surrender of this 2014-B Exchange Note and will specify the place where this 2014-B Exchange Note may be presented and surrendered for payment of the final installment.

 

As provided in the Servicing Supplement, this 2014-B Exchange Note may be purchased by the Servicer, in whole but not in part, in the manner and to the extent described in Section 5.1 of the Servicing Supplement.

 

The transfer of this 2014-B Exchange Note is subject to the restrictions on transfer specified on the face of this 2014-B Exchange Note and to the other limitations set forth in the Credit and Security Agreement and the Exchange Note Supplement.  Subject to the satisfaction of those restrictions and limitations, the transfer of this 2014-B Exchange Note may be registered on the Exchange Note Register on surrender of this 2014-B Exchange Note for registration of transfer at the office or agency designated by the Borrowers under the Credit and Security Agreement, duly endorsed by, or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Administrative Agent duly executed by, the 2014-B Exchange Noteholder or the 2014-B Exchange Noteholder’s attorney duly authorized in writing, with the signature guaranteed by an “eligible guarantor institution” meeting the requirements of the Exchange Note Registrar, and then a new 2014-B Exchange Note in the same aggregate principal amount will be issued to the designated transferee.  No service charge will be charged for any registration of transfer or exchange of this 2014-B Exchange 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.

 

The 2014-B Exchange Noteholder, by accepting this 2014-B Exchange Note acknowledges and agrees that (i) if an Insolvency Event occurs for any of the Borrowers, any claim that the 2014-B Exchange Noteholder may seek to enforce at any time against any of the Borrowers will be limited in recourse to the 2014-B Reference Pool (except to the extent of Shared Amounts allocated to the 2014-B Exchange Noteholder under Section 5.1 of the Exchange Note Supplement) and (ii) if, notwithstanding clause (i), the 2014-B Exchange Noteholder is deemed to have any claim against the assets of the Borrowers other than the assets included in the 2014-B Reference Pool, whether by operation of law, legal process, under insolvency laws or otherwise (including by virtue of Section 1111(b) of the Bankruptcy Code), the claim will be subordinate to the payment in full, including post-petition interest, of the claims of the Lender and to the holders of (A) all other Exchange Notes and (B) in the case of assets allocated to a Specified Interest other than the Collateral Specified Interest, all other asset-backed securities, the payments on which are derived primarily from collections on designated assets of the Borrowers and all related hedging arrangements.

 

THE RECITATION SET FORTH IN THE PRECEDING PARAGRAPH WILL BE DEEMED TO CONSTITUTE AN ENFORCEABLE SUBORDINATION AGREEMENT WITHIN THE MEANING OF SECTION 510(A) OF THE BANKRUPTCY CODE.

 

EA-7



 

In addition, the 2014-B Exchange Noteholder, by accepting this 2014-B Exchange Note, consents to the Administrative Agent’s delegation under the HTD Administration Agreement to the Collateral Agent Administrator of certain of the duties that the Administrative Agent is required to perform on behalf of the Collateral Agent under the Credit and Security Agreement.

The Borrowers have entered into the Exchange Note Supplement and this 2014-B Exchange Note is issued with the intention that, for U.S. federal, State and local income, single business and franchise tax purposes, this 2014-B Exchange Note will qualify as indebtedness of the Borrowers.  The 2014-B Exchange Noteholder, by its acceptance of this 2014-B Exchange Note, will be deemed to agree to treat this 2014-B Exchange Note for U.S. federal, State and local income, single business and franchise tax purposes as indebtedness of the Borrowers.

 

Prior to the due presentment for registration of transfer of this 2014-B Exchange Note, the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent and any agent of the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent may treat the Person in whose name this 2014-B Exchange Note (as of the day of determination or as of any other date specified in the Exchange Note Supplement) is registered as the owner of this 2014-B Exchange Note for all purposes, whether or not this 2014-B Exchange Note be overdue, and, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, none of the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent or any such agent will be affected by notice to the contrary.

 

The Credit and Security Agreement may be amended (in any manner and for any purpose) by the Borrowers, the Collateral Agent, the Lender and the Administrative Agent so long as each Exchange Noteholder of an Outstanding Exchange Note has consented to the amendment.  The Credit and Security Agreement also permits the amendment or waiver of certain of its terms and conditions without the consent of the Noteholders; provided, that certain conditions are satisfied.  Any such consent by the 2014-B Exchange Noteholder will be conclusive and binding on the 2014-B Exchange Noteholder and on all future holders of this 2014-B Exchange Note and of any 2014-B Exchange Note issued on the registration of transfer of this 2014-B Exchange Note or in exchange for or in lieu of this 2014-B Exchange Note whether or not notation of the consent or waiver is made on this 2014-B Exchange Note.
