(d) The Trust Collateral Agent shall, at such time as there are no Notes or Certificate outstanding and all sums due to the Trustee and Trust Collateral Agent pursuant to the Basic Documents have been paid, execute such documents as are reasonably provided to it by the Seller (which documents shall be prepared at the Seller’s expense) in order to release any remaining portion of the Trust Property to the Seller.

SECTION 2.4. Intention of the Parties.

The execution and delivery of this Agreement shall constitute an acknowledgment by the Seller and the Issuer that they intend that the assignment and transfer herein contemplated constitute a sale and assignment outright, and not for security, of the Receivables and Other Conveyed Property, for non-tax purposes, conveying good title thereto free and clear of any Liens, from the Seller to the Issuer, and that the Receivables and the Other Conveyed Property shall not be a part of the Seller’s estate in the event of a bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceeding, or other proceeding under any federal or state bankruptcy or similar law, or the occurrence of another similar event, of, or with respect to the Seller. In the event that such conveyance is determined to be made as security for a loan made by the Issuer, the Noteholders or the Certificateholder to the Seller, the Seller hereby grants to the Issuer a security interest in all of the Seller’s right, title and interest in and to the following property for the benefit of the Issuer Secured Parties, whether now owned or existing or hereafter acquired or arising, and this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under applicable law (collectively, the “Sale and Servicing Agreement Collateral”):

(i) the Receivables and all moneys received thereon after the Cutoff Date;

 

21


(ii) the security interests in the Financed Vehicles granted by Obligors pursuant to the Receivables and any other interest of the Seller in such Financed Vehicles;

(iii) any proceeds and the right to receive proceeds with respect to the Receivables from claims on any physical damage, credit life or disability insurance policies covering Financed Vehicles or Obligors and any proceeds from the liquidation of the Receivables;

(iv) any proceeds from any Receivable repurchased by a Dealer pursuant to a Dealer Agreement or a Third-Party Lender pursuant to an Auto Loan Purchase and Sale Agreement as a result of a breach of representation or warranty in the related Dealer Agreement or Auto Loan Purchase and Sale Agreement;

(v) all rights under any Service Contracts on the related Financed Vehicles;

(vi) the related Receivable Files;

(vii) all of the Seller’s right, title and interest in its rights and benefits, but none of its obligations or burdens, under the Purchase Agreement, and the delivery requirements, representations and warranties and the cure and repurchase obligations of AmeriCredit under the Purchase Agreement;

(viii) all of the Seller’s (a) Accounts, (b) Chattel Paper, (c) Documents, (d) Instruments and (e) General Intangibles (as such terms are defined in the UCC) relating to the property described in (i) through (vii); and

(ix) all proceeds and investments with respect to items (i) through (viii).

ARTICLE III

The Receivables

SECTION 3.1. Representations and Warranties of Seller. The Seller hereby represents and warrants that each of the representations and warranties set forth on the Schedule of Representations attached hereto as Schedule B is true and correct on which the Issuer is deemed to have relied in acquiring the Receivables. Such representations and warranties speak as of the execution and delivery of this Agreement and as of the Closing Date, but shall survive the sale, transfer and assignment of the Receivables to the Issuer and the pledge thereof to the Trust Collateral Agent pursuant to the Indenture and shall not be waived.

SECTION 3.2. Repurchase upon Breach.

(a) The Seller, the Servicer, the Trust Collateral Agent or the Owner Trustee, as the case may be, shall inform the other parties to this Agreement promptly, by notice in writing, upon the discovery of any breach of the Seller’s representations and warranties made pursuant to Section 3.1. As of the last day of the second (or, if the Seller so elects, the first) month following

 

22


the discovery by the Seller or receipt by the Seller of notice of such breach, unless such breach is cured by such date, the Seller shall have an obligation to repurchase any Receivable in which the interests of the Noteholders are materially and adversely affected by any such breach as of such date. The “second month” shall mean the month following the month in which discovery occurs or notice is given, and the “first month” shall mean the month in which discovery occurs or notice is given. In consideration of and simultaneously with the repurchase of the Receivable, the Seller shall remit, or cause AmeriCredit to remit, to the Collection Account the Purchase Amount in the manner specified in Section 5.6 and the Issuer shall execute such assignments and other documents reasonably requested by such person in order to effect such repurchase. The sole remedy of the Issuer, the Owner Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent, the Trustee or the Noteholders with respect to a breach of representations and warranties pursuant to Section 3.1 and the agreement contained in this Section shall be the repurchase of Receivables pursuant to this Section, subject to the conditions contained herein or to enforce the obligation of AmeriCredit to the Seller to repurchase such Receivables pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. Neither the Owner Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent nor the Trustee shall have a duty to conduct any affirmative investigation as to the occurrence of any conditions requiring the repurchase of any Receivable pursuant to this Section.

In addition to the foregoing and notwithstanding whether the related Receivable shall have been purchased by the Seller, the Seller shall indemnify the Trust, the Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent and the officers, directors, agents and employees thereof, and the Noteholders against all costs, expenses, losses, damages, claims and liabilities, including reasonable fees and expenses of counsel, which may be asserted against or incurred by any of them as a result of third party claims arising out of the events or facts giving rise to such breach.

(b) Pursuant to Section 2.1 of this Agreement, the Seller conveyed to the Trust all of the Seller’s right, title and interest in its rights and benefits, but none of its obligations or burdens, under the Purchase Agreement including the Seller’s rights under the Purchase Agreement and the delivery requirements, representations and warranties and the cure or repurchase obligations of AmeriCredit thereunder. The Seller hereby represents and warrants to the Trust that such assignment is valid, enforceable and effective to permit the Trust to enforce such obligations of AmeriCredit under the Purchase Agreement. Any purchase by AmeriCredit pursuant to the Purchase Agreement shall be deemed a purchase by the Seller pursuant to this Section 3.2 and the definition of Purchased Receivable.

SECTION 3.3. Custody of Receivable Files.

(a) In connection with the sale, transfer and assignment of the Receivables and the Other Conveyed Property to the Trust pursuant to this Agreement and simultaneously with the execution and delivery of this Agreement, the Trust Collateral Agent hereby revocably appoints the Custodian, and the Custodian hereby accepts such appointment, to act as the agent of the Trust Collateral Agent as custodian of the following documents or instruments in its possession or control (the “Receivable Files”) which shall be delivered to the Custodian as agent of the Trust Collateral Agent on or before the Closing Date (with respect to each Receivable):

(i) The fully executed original (or with respect to “electronic chattel paper”, the authoritative copy) of the Contract; and

 

23


(ii) The Lien Certificate (when received), and otherwise such documents, if any, that AmeriCredit keeps on file in accordance with its customary procedures indicating that the Financed Vehicle is owned by the Obligor and subject to the interest of AmeriCredit, an Originating Affiliate or a Titled Third-Party Lender (which may be accomplished by the use of a properly registered “doing business as” (“DBA”) name in the applicable jurisdiction) as first lienholder or secured party (including any Lien Certificate received by AmeriCredit), or, if such Lien Certificate has not yet been received, a copy of the application therefor, showing AmeriCredit, an Originating Affiliate or a Titled Third-Party Lender (which may be accomplished by the use of a properly registered DBA name in the applicable jurisdiction) as secured party.

The Receivables Files are constructively delivered to the Trust Collateral Agent, as pledgee of the Issuer pursuant to the Indenture, and the Custodian hereby, as of the Closing Date, acknowledges receipt of the Receivable File for each Receivable listed in Schedule A hereto. No initial review or any periodic review of the Receivable Files by the Issuer, the Owner Trustee, the Trustee or the Trust Collateral Agent is required.

(b) If the Trust Collateral Agent, or its agent, as the case may be, is acting as the Custodian pursuant to Section 3.12 hereof, the Trust Collateral Agent, or its agent, as the case may be, shall be deemed to have assumed the obligations of the Custodian (except for any liabilities incurred by the predecessor Custodian) specified in this Agreement until such time as a successor Custodian has been appointed. Upon payment in full of any Receivable, the Servicer will notify the Custodian pursuant to a certificate of an officer of the Servicer (which certificate shall include a statement to the effect that all amounts received in connection with such payments which are required to be deposited in the Collection Account pursuant to Section 4.1 hereof have been so deposited) and shall request delivery of the Receivable and Receivable File to the Servicer. Upon the sale of any Receivable pursuant to Section 4.3(c) hereof, the Servicer will notify the Custodian pursuant to a certificate of an officer of the Servicer (which certificate shall include a statement to the effect that all amounts received in connection with such sale which are required to be deposited in the Collection Account pursuant to Section 4.3(c) have been so deposited) and shall request delivery of the Receivable and Receivable File to the purchaser of such Receivable. From time to time as appropriate for servicing and enforcing any Receivable, the Custodian shall, upon written request of an officer of the Servicer and delivery to the Custodian of a receipt signed by such officer, cause the original Receivable and the related Receivable File to be released to the Servicer. The Servicer’s receipt of a Receivable and/or Receivable File shall obligate the Servicer to return the original Receivable and the related Receivable File to the Custodian when its need by the Servicer has ceased unless the Receivable is repurchased as described in Section 3.2, 4.2 or 4.7.

SECTION 3.4. Maintenance and Safekeeping of the Receivable Files. The Custodian will accurately maintain and keep current the Receivable Files, including any computer systems on which the Receivable Files are electronically stored, all in a manner that will permit the Servicer and the Issuer to comply with this Agreement and the Trust Collateral Agent to comply with the Indenture. The Custodian will act with reasonable care, using that degree of skill and attention that a commercial bank acting in the capacity of a custodian would exercise with respect to files relating to comparable automotive or other receivables that it

 

24


services or holds for itself or others. The Custodian shall promptly report to the Trust Collateral Agent in writing any failure on its part to hold the Receivable Files and maintain its accounts, records and computer systems as herein provided and promptly take appropriate action to remedy any such failure.

SECTION 3.5. Location of Receivables Files. The Custodian will maintain the Receivable Files in a fireproof vault at its office located at 4001 Embarcadero, Suite 200, Arlington, Texas 76014 or at such other office as shall from time to time be identified to the Trust Collateral Agent upon prior written notice and the Custodian will hold the Receivable Files in such office on behalf of the Issuer and the Trust Collateral Agent, clearly identified as being separate from any other instruments and files on its records, including other instruments and files held by the Custodian.

SECTION 3.6. Access to Records. The Custodian shall, subject only to the Custodian’s security requirements applicable to its own employees having access to similar records held by the Custodian, which requirements shall be consistent with the practices of a commercial bank acting in the capacity of custodian with respect to similar files or records, and at such times as may be reasonably imposed by the Custodian, permit only the Noteholders and the Trust Collateral Agent or their duly authorized representatives, attorneys or auditors to inspect, at the Servicer’s expense, the Receivable Files and the related accounts, records, and computer systems maintained by the Custodian pursuant hereto at such times as the Noteholders or the Trust Collateral Agent may reasonably request.

SECTION 3.7. Advice of Counsel. The Custodian shall be entitled to rely and act upon advice of counsel with respect to its performance hereunder as custodian and shall be without liability for any action reasonably taken pursuant to such advice, provided that such action is not in violation of applicable Federal or state law.

SECTION 3.8. Administration; Reports. The Custodian shall, in general, attend to all non-discretionary details in connection with maintaining custody of the Receivable Files on behalf of the Trust Collateral Agent. In addition, the Custodian shall assist the Trust Collateral Agent generally in the preparation of any routine reports to Noteholders or to regulatory bodies, to the extent necessitated by the Custodian’s custody of the Receivable Files.

SECTION 3.9. Instructions; Authority to Act. The Custodian shall be deemed to have received proper instructions with respect to the Receivable Files upon its receipt of written instructions signed by a Responsible Officer of the Trust Collateral Agent. Such instructions may be general or specific in terms. A copy of any such instructions shall be furnished by the Trust Collateral Agent to the Trustee (if they are separate entities) and the Issuer.

SECTION 3.10. Custodian Fee. For its services under this Agreement, the Custodian shall be entitled to reasonable compensation to be paid by the Servicer.

SECTION 3.11. Indemnification by the Custodian. The Custodian agrees to indemnify the Issuer, the Owner Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent and the Trustee for any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damage, payments, costs or expenses of any kind whatsoever (including the fees and expenses of counsel) that may be imposed on, incurred or

 

25


asserted against the Issuer, the Owner Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent and the Trustee and their respective officers, directors,

employees, agents, attorneys and successors and assigns as the result of any act or omission in any way relating to the maintenance and custody by the Custodian of the Receivable Files; provided, however, that the Custodian shall not be liable for any portion of any such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, payments or costs or expenses due to the Issuer’s, the Owner Trustee’s, the Trust Collateral Agent’s or the Trustee’s or the officers’, directors’, employees’ and agents’ thereof own willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence. In no event shall the Custodian be liable to any third party for acts or omissions of the Custodian.

SECTION 3.12. Effective Period and Termination of Custodian. AmeriCredit’s appointment as custodian is effective as of the Cutoff Date and will continue until terminated pursuant to this Section 3.12. So long as AmeriCredit is serving as Custodian, any termination of AmeriCredit as Servicer hereunder shall terminate AmeriCredit as Custodian. As soon as practicable after termination of its appointment as custodian, the Custodian shall deliver, at the Custodian’s expense, the Receivable Files to the Trust Collateral Agent on behalf of the Noteholders at such place or places as the Trust Collateral Agent may designate, and the Trust Collateral Agent, or its agent, as the case may be, shall act as custodian for such Receivables Files on behalf of the Noteholders until such time as a successor custodian has been appointed. If, within seventy-two (72) hours after the termination of this Agreement, the Custodian has not delivered the Receivable Files in accordance with the preceding sentence, the Trust Collateral Agent may enter the premises of the Custodian and remove the Receivable Files from such premises.

ARTICLE IV

Administration and Servicing of Receivables

SECTION 4.1. Duties of the Servicer

The Servicer is hereby authorized to act as agent for the Trust and in such capacity shall manage, service, administer and make collections on the Receivables, and perform the other actions required by the Servicer under this Agreement. The Servicer agrees that its servicing of the Receivables shall be carried out in accordance with customary and usual procedures of institutions which service motor vehicle retail installment sales contracts and, to the extent more exacting, the degree of skill and attention that the Servicer exercises from time to time with respect to all comparable motor vehicle receivables that it services for itself or others. In performing such duties, so long as AmeriCredit is the Servicer, it shall substantially comply with the policies and procedures described on Schedule C, as such policies and procedures may be updated from time to time. The Servicer’s duties shall include, without limitation, collecting and posting all payments, responding to inquiries of Obligors on the Receivables, investigating delinquencies, sending payment coupons to Obligors, reporting any required tax information to Obligors, monitoring the collateral, complying with the terms of the Lockbox Agreements, accounting for collections and furnishing monthly and annual statements to the Trust Collateral Agent and the Trustee with respect to distributions, monitoring the status of Insurance Policies with respect to the Financed Vehicles and performing the other duties specified herein.

 

26


The Servicer, or if AmeriCredit is no longer the Servicer, AmeriCredit, at the request of the Servicer, shall also administer and enforce all rights and responsibilities of the holder of the Receivables provided for in the Dealer Agreements and Auto Loan Purchase and Sale Agreements (and shall maintain possession of the Dealer Agreements and Auto Loan Purchase and Sale Agreements, to the extent it is necessary to do so), the Dealer Assignments, the Third-Party Lender Assignments and the Insurance Policies, to the extent that such Dealer Agreements, Auto Loan Purchase and Sale Agreements, Dealer Assignments, Third-Party Lender Assignments and Insurance Policies relate to the Receivables, the Financed Vehicles or the Obligors. To the extent consistent with the standards, policies and procedures otherwise required hereby, the Servicer shall follow its customary standards, policies, and procedures and shall have full power and authority, acting alone, to do any and all things in connection with such managing, servicing, administration and collection that it may deem necessary or desirable. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Servicer is hereby authorized and empowered by the Trust to execute and deliver, on behalf of the Trust, any and all instruments of satisfaction or cancellation, or of partial or full release or discharge, and all other comparable instruments, with respect to the Receivables and with respect to the Financed Vehicles; provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing, the Servicer shall not, except pursuant to an order from a court of competent jurisdiction, release an Obligor from payment of any unpaid amount under any Receivable or waive the right to collect the unpaid balance of any Receivable from the Obligor, except in accordance with the Servicer’s customary practices.

The Servicer is hereby authorized to commence, in its own name or in the name of the Trust, a legal proceeding to enforce a Receivable pursuant to Section 4.3 or to commence or participate in any other legal proceeding (including, without limitation, a bankruptcy proceeding) relating to or involving a Receivable, an Obligor or a Financed Vehicle. If the Servicer commences or participates in such a legal proceeding in its own name, the Trust shall thereupon be deemed to have automatically assigned such Receivable to the Servicer solely for purposes of commencing or participating in any such proceeding as a party or claimant, and the Servicer is authorized and empowered by the Trust to execute and deliver in the Servicer’s name any notices, demands, claims, complaints, responses, affidavits or other documents or instruments in connection with any such proceeding. The Trust Collateral Agent and the Owner Trustee shall furnish the Servicer with any limited powers of attorney and other documents which the Servicer may reasonably request and which the Servicer deems necessary or appropriate and take any other steps which the Servicer may deem necessary or appropriate to enable the Servicer to carry out its servicing and administrative duties under this Agreement.

As set forth in Section 9.3, in the event the Servicer fails to perform its obligations hereunder, the successor Servicer shall be responsible for the Servicer’s duties in this Agreement as if it were the Servicer, provided that the successor Servicer shall not be liable for the Servicer’s breach of its obligations.

SECTION 4.2. Collection of Receivable Payments; Modifications of Receivables; Lockbox Agreements.

(a) Consistent with the standards, policies and procedures required by this Agreement, the Servicer shall make reasonable efforts to collect all payments called for under the terms and provisions of the Receivables as and when the same shall become due, and shall follow such

 

27


collection procedures as it follows with respect to all comparable automobile receivables that it services for itself or others and otherwise act with respect to the Receivables, the Dealer Agreements, the Dealer Assignments, the Auto Loan Purchase and Sale Agreements, the Third-Party Lender Assignments, the Insurance Policies and the Other Conveyed Property in such manner as will, in the reasonable judgment of the Servicer, maximize the amount to be received by the Trust with respect thereto, including directing the Issuer to sell the Receivables pursuant to Section 4.3(c) hereof. The Servicer is authorized in its discretion to waive any prepayment charge, late payment charge or any other similar fees that may be collected in the ordinary course of servicing any Receivable.

(b) The Servicer may (A) at any time agree to a modification or amendment of a Receivable in order to (i) not more than once per year, change the Obligor’s regular monthly due date to a date that shall in no event be later than 30 days after the original monthly due date of that Receivable, in accordance with its customary procedures or (ii) re-amortize the Scheduled Receivables Payments on the Receivable (x) following a partial prepayment of principal, in accordance with its customary procedures or (y) following the Obligor’s reinstatement based on local laws or (B) may direct the Issuer to sell the Receivables pursuant to Section 4.3 hereof, if the Servicer believes in good faith that such extension, modification, amendment or sale is necessary to avoid a default on such Receivable, will maximize the amount to be received by the Trust with respect to such Receivable, and is otherwise in the best interests of the Trust.

(c) The Servicer may grant payment extensions on, or other modifications or amendments to, a receivable (in addition to those modifications permitted by Section 4.2(b) hereof), in accordance with its customary procedures if the Servicer believes in good faith that such extension, modification or amendment is necessary to avoid a default on such Receivable, will maximize the amount to be received by the Trust with respect to such Receivable, and is otherwise in the best interests of the Trust; provided, however, that:

(i) The aggregate period of all extensions on a Receivable shall not exceed eight months; and

(ii) In no event may a Receivable be extended beyond the Collection Period immediately preceding the latest Final Scheduled Distribution Date.

(d) The Servicer, acting as agent for the Trust pursuant to the Lockbox Account Agreement, shall use its best efforts to notify or direct Obligors to make all payments on the Receivables, whether by check or by direct debit of the Obligor’s bank account, to be made directly to one or more Lockbox Banks or Lockbox Processors pursuant to the Lockbox Agreements. The Servicer shall use its best efforts to notify or direct any Lockbox Bank or Lockbox Processor to deposit all payments on the Receivables in the Lockbox Account no later than the Business Day after receipt, and to cause all amounts credited to the Lockbox Account on account of such payments to be transferred to the Collection Account no later than the second Business Day after receipt of such payments. The Lockbox Account shall be a demand deposit account held by the Lockbox Bank.

 

28


Prior to the Closing Date, the Servicer shall have notified each Obligor that makes its payments on the Receivables by check to make such payments thereafter directly to the Lockbox Processor (except in the case of Obligors that have already been making such payments to the Lockbox Processor), and shall have provided each such Obligor with remittance invoices in order to enable such Obligors to make such payments directly to the Lockbox Processor for deposit into the Lockbox Account, and the Servicer will continue, not less often than every three months, to so notify those Obligors who have failed to make payments to the Lockbox Processor. If at any time, an Obligor’s bank account cannot be accessed by direct debit and if such inability is not cured within 15 days or cannot be cured by execution by the Obligor of a new authorization for automatic payment, the Servicer shall notify such Obligor that it cannot make payment by direct debit and must thereafter make payment by check.

Notwithstanding any Lockbox Agreement, or any of the provisions of this Agreement relating to the Lockbox Agreements, the Servicer shall remain obligated and liable to the Trust, the Trust Collateral Agent and Noteholders for servicing and administering the Receivables and the Other Conveyed Property in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement without diminution of such obligation or liability by virtue thereof.

In the event of a termination of the Servicer, the successor Servicer shall assume all of the rights and obligations of the outgoing Servicer under the Lockbox Agreements subject to the terms hereof. In such event, the successor Servicer shall be deemed to have assumed all of the outgoing Servicer’s interest therein and to have replaced the outgoing Servicer as a party to each such Lockbox Agreement to the same extent as if such Lockbox Agreements had been assigned to the successor Servicer, except that the outgoing Servicer shall not thereby be relieved of any liability or obligations on the part of the outgoing Servicer to the Lockbox Bank or the Lockbox Processor under such Lockbox Agreements. The outgoing Servicer shall, upon request of the Trust Collateral Agent, but at the expense of the outgoing Servicer, deliver to the successor Servicer all documents and records relating to each such Lockbox Agreement and an accounting of amounts collected and held by the Lockbox Processor and the Lockbox Bank and otherwise use its best efforts to effect the orderly and efficient transfer of the Lockbox Agreements to the successor Servicer. In the event that the Majority Noteholders elect to change the identity of the Lockbox Bank or Lockbox Processor, the outgoing Servicer, at its expense, shall cause the Lockbox Bank or Lockbox Processor to deliver, at the direction of the Majority Noteholders to the Trust Collateral Agent or a successor Lockbox Bank or Lockbox Processor, all documents and records relating to the Receivables and all amounts held (or thereafter received) by the Lockbox Bank or the Lockbox Processor (together with an accounting of such amounts) and shall otherwise use its best efforts to effect the orderly and efficient transfer of the lockbox arrangements and the Servicer shall notify the Obligors to make payments to the lockbox arrangements established by the successor.

(e) The Servicer shall remit all payments by or on behalf of the Obligors received directly by the Servicer to the Lockbox Bank as soon as practicable, but in no event later than the second Business Day after receipt thereof, and such amounts shall be deposited into the Lockbox Account and transferred from the Lockbox Account to the Collection Account in accordance with Section 4.2(d) hereof.

(f) AmeriCredit shall not cause or permit the substitution of the Financed Vehicle relating to a Receivable unless: (i) the substitution is a replacement of the Financed Vehicle originally financed

 

29


under the related Receivable; (ii) the Financed Vehicle originally financed under the related Receivable was either (x) insured under an Insurance Policy as required under Section 4.4(a) at the time of a casualty loss that is treated as a total loss under such Insurance Policy, (y) deemed to be a “lemon” pursuant to applicable state law and repurchased by the related Dealer or (z) the subject of an order by a court of competent jurisdiction directing AmeriCredit to substitute another vehicle under the related Receivable; (iii) the related Receivable is not more than 30 days delinquent; (iv) the Obligor is deemed to be in “good standing” by the Servicer and is not in breach of any requirement under the related Receivable; (v) the replacement Financed Vehicle has a book value (N.A.D.A.) at least equal to the book value (N.A.D.A.) of the Financed Vehicle that is being replaced, measured immediately before the casualty loss or replacement by the Dealer and (vi) as of the date of such substitution, the replacement Financed Vehicle’s mileage is no greater than the mileage on the Financed Vehicle that is being replaced; provided, however, that if the substitution is made pursuant to clause (ii)(z), above, clauses (iii) through (vi) inclusive, shall not be applicable. AmeriCredit shall not cause or permit the substitution of Financed Vehicles relating to Receivables having an original aggregate Principal Balance greater than two percent (2%) of the Original Pool Balance, (the “Substitution Limit”). In the event that the Substitution Limit is exceeded for any reason, (i) AmeriCredit shall, on or before the next following Accounting Date, repurchase a sufficient number of such Receivables to cause the aggregate original Principal Balances of such Receivables to be less than the Substitution Limit or (ii) if AmeriCredit is not the Servicer and the Servicer has caused substitutions to be made hereunder pursuant to the circumstances described in clause (ii)(x), above, the Servicer shall, on or before the next following Accounting Date, repurchase a sufficient number of such Receivables to cause the aggregate original Principal Balances of such Receivables to be less than the Substitution Limit.

SECTION 4.3. Realization upon Receivables.

(a) In addition to the Servicer’s ability to direct the Issuer to sell Receivables pursuant to Section 4.3(c) hereof, and consistent with the standards, policies and procedures required by this Agreement, the Servicer shall use its best efforts to repossess (or otherwise comparably convert the ownership of) and liquidate any Financed Vehicle securing a Receivable with respect to which the Servicer has determined that payments thereunder are not likely to be resumed, as soon as is practicable; provided, however, that the Servicer may elect not to repossess a Financed Vehicle if in its good faith judgment it determines that the proceeds ultimately recoverable with respect to such Receivable would be increased by forbearance or if it instead elects to direct the Issuer to sell the Receivables pursuant to Section 4.3(c). The Servicer is authorized to follow such customary practices and procedures as it shall deem necessary or advisable, consistent with the standard of care required by Section 4.1, which practices and procedures may include reasonable efforts to realize upon any recourse to Dealers and Third-Party Lenders, the sale of the related Financed Vehicle at public or private sale, the submission of claims under an Insurance Policy and other actions by the Servicer in order to realize upon such a Receivable. The foregoing is subject to the provision that, in any case in which the Financed Vehicle shall have suffered damage, the Servicer shall not expend funds in connection with any repair or towards the repossession of such Financed Vehicle unless it expects in its sole discretion, that such repair and/or repossession shall increase the proceeds of liquidation of the related Receivable by an amount greater than the amount of such expenses. All amounts received upon liquidation of a Financed Vehicle shall be remitted directly by the Servicer to the Collection Account without deposit into any intervening account as soon as practicable, but in no event later than the Business

 

30


Day after receipt thereof. The Servicer shall be entitled to recover all reasonable expenses incurred by it in the course of repossessing and liquidating a Financed Vehicle into cash proceeds, but only out of the cash proceeds of such Financed Vehicle, any deficiency obtained from the Obligor or any amounts received from the related Dealer or Third-Party Lender, which amounts in reimbursement may be retained by the Servicer (and shall not be required to be deposited as provided in Section 4.2(e)) to the extent of such expenses. The Servicer shall pay on behalf of the Trust any personal property taxes assessed on repossessed Financed Vehicles. The Servicer shall be entitled to reimbursement of any such tax from Net Liquidation Proceeds with respect to such Receivable.

(b) If the Servicer, or if AmeriCredit is no longer the Servicer, AmeriCredit at the request of the Servicer, elects to commence a legal proceeding to enforce a Dealer Agreement, Auto Loan Purchase and Sale Agreement, Dealer Assignment or Third-Party Lender Assignment, the act of commencement shall be deemed to be an automatic assignment from the Trust to the Servicer, or to AmeriCredit at the request of the Servicer, of the rights under such Dealer Agreement, Auto Loan Purchase and Sale Agreement, Dealer Assignment or Third-Party Lender Assignment for purposes of collection only. If, however, in any enforcement suit or legal proceeding it is held that the Servicer or AmeriCredit, as appropriate, may not enforce a Dealer Agreement, Auto Loan Purchase and Sale Agreement, Dealer Assignment or Third-Party Lender Assignment on the grounds that it is not a real party in interest or a Person entitled to enforce the Dealer Agreement, Auto Loan Purchase and Sale Agreement, Dealer Assignment or Third-Party Lender Assignment, the Owner Trustee and/or the Trust Collateral Agent, at AmeriCredit’s expense, or the Seller, at the Seller’s expense, shall take such steps as the Servicer deems reasonably necessary to enforce the Dealer Agreement, Auto Loan Purchase and Sale Agreement, Dealer Assignment or Third-Party Lender Assignment, including bringing suit in its name or the name of the Seller or of the Trust and the Owner Trustee and/or the Trust Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Noteholders. All amounts recovered shall be remitted directly by the Servicer as provided in Section 4.2(e).

(c) Consistent with the standards, policies and procedures required by this Agreement, the Servicer may use its best efforts to locate a third party purchaser that is not affiliated with the Servicer, the Seller or the Issuer to purchase from the Issuer any Receivable that has become more than 60 days delinquent, and shall have the right to direct the Issuer to sell any such Receivable to the third-party purchaser; provided, that no more than 20% of the number of Receivables in the pool as of the Cutoff Date may be sold by the Issuer pursuant to this Section 4.3(c) in the aggregate; provided further, that the Servicer may elect to not direct the Issuer to sell a Receivable that has become more than 60 days delinquent if in its good faith judgment the Servicer determines that the proceeds ultimately recoverable with respect to such Receivable would be increased by forbearance. In selecting Receivables to be sold to a third party purchaser pursuant to this Section 4.3(c), the Servicer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to locate purchasers for the most delinquent Receivables first. In any event, the Servicer shall not use any procedure in selecting Receivables to be sold to third party purchasers which is materially adverse to the interest of the Noteholders. The Issuer shall sell each Sold Receivable for the greatest market price possible; provided, however, that aggregate Sale Amounts received by the Issuer for all Receivables sold to a single third-party purchaser on a single date must be at least equal to the sum of the Minimum Sale Prices for all such Receivables. The Servicer shall remit or cause the third-party purchaser to remit all sale proceeds from the sale of Receivables to the Collection Account without deposit into any intervening account as soon as practicable, but in no event later than the Business Day after receipt thereof.

SECTION 4.4. Insurance.

(a) The Servicer shall require, in accordance with its customary servicing policies and procedures, that each Financed Vehicle be insured by the related Obligor under the Insurance Policies referred to in Paragraph 27 of the Schedule of Representations and Warranties and shall monitor the status of such physical loss and damage insurance coverage thereafter, in accordance with its customary servicing procedures. Each Receivable requires the Obligor to maintain such physical loss and damage insurance, naming AmeriCredit, an Originating Affiliate or a Titled Third-Party Lender (which may be accomplished by the use of a properly registered DBA name in the applicable jurisdiction) and its successors and assigns as additional insureds, and permits the holder of such Receivable to obtain physical loss and damage insurance at the expense of the Obligor if the Obligor fails to maintain such insurance. If the Servicer shall determine that an Obligor has failed to obtain or maintain a physical loss and damage Insurance Policy covering the related Financed Vehicle which satisfies the conditions set forth in clause (i)(a) of such Paragraph 27 (including, without limitation, during the repossession of such Financed Vehicle) the Servicer may enforce the rights of the holder of the Receivable under the Receivable to require the Obligor to obtain such physical loss and damage insurance in accordance with its customary servicing policies and procedures. The Servicer may maintain a vendor’s single interest or other collateral protection insurance policy with respect to all Financed Vehicles (“Collateral Insurance”) which policy shall by its terms insure against physical loss and damage in the event any Obligor fails to maintain physical loss and damage insurance with respect to the related Financed Vehicle. The Servicer shall cause itself, an Originating Affiliate or a Titled Third-Party Lender, and may cause the Trust Collateral Agent (which may be accomplished by the use of a properly registered DBA name in the applicable jurisdiction), to be named as named insured under all policies of Collateral Insurance. Costs incurred by the Servicer in maintaining such Collateral Insurance shall be paid by the Servicer.

(b) The Servicer may, if an Obligor fails to obtain or maintain a physical loss and damage Insurance Policy, obtain insurance with respect to the related Financed Vehicle and advance on behalf of such Obligor, as required under the terms of the insurance policy, the premiums for such insurance (such insurance being referred to herein as “Force-Placed Insurance”). All policies of Force-Placed Insurance shall be endorsed with clauses providing for loss payable to the Servicer. Any cost incurred by the Servicer in maintaining such Force-Placed Insurance shall only be recoverable out of premiums paid by the Obligors or Net Liquidation Proceeds with respect to the Receivable, as provided in Section 4.4(c).

(c) In connection with any Force-Placed Insurance obtained hereunder, the Servicer may, in the manner and to the extent permitted by applicable law, require the Obligors to repay the entire premium to the Servicer. In no event shall the Servicer include the amount of the premium in the Amount Financed under the Receivable. For all purposes of this Agreement, the Insurance Add-On Amount with respect to any Receivable having Force-Placed Insurance will be treated as a separate obligation of the Obligor and will not be added to the Principal Balance of such Receivable, and amounts allocable thereto will not be available for distribution on the Notes and the Certificate. The Servicer shall retain and separately administer the right to receive

 

32


payments from Obligors with respect to Insurance Add-On Amounts or rebates of Forced-Placed Insurance premiums. If an Obligor makes a payment with respect to a Receivable having Force-Placed Insurance, but the Servicer is unable to determine whether the payment is allocable to the Receivable or to the Insurance Add-On Amount, the payment shall be applied first to any unpaid Scheduled Receivables Payments and then to the Insurance Add-On Amount. Net Liquidation Proceeds on any Receivable will be used first to pay the Principal Balance and accrued interest on such Receivable and then to pay the related Insurance Add-On Amount. If an Obligor under a Receivable with respect to which the Servicer has placed Force-Placed Insurance fails to make scheduled payments of such Insurance Add-On Amount as due, and the Servicer has determined that eventual payment of the Insurance Add-On Amount is unlikely, the Servicer may, but shall not be required to, purchase such Receivable from the Trust for the Purchase Amount on any subsequent Determination Date. Any such Receivable, and any Receivable with respect to which the Servicer has placed Force-Placed Insurance which has been paid in full (excluding any Insurance Add-On Amounts) will be assigned to the Servicer.

(d) The Servicer may sue to enforce or collect upon the Insurance Policies, in its own name, if possible, or as agent of the Trust. If the Servicer elects to commence a legal proceeding to enforce an Insurance Policy, the act of commencement shall be deemed to be an automatic assignment of the rights of the Trust under such Insurance Policy to the Servicer for purposes of collection only. If, however, in any enforcement suit or legal proceeding it is held that the Servicer may not enforce an Insurance Policy on the grounds that it is not a real party in interest or a holder entitled to enforce the Insurance Policy, the Issuer and/or the Trust Collateral Agent, at the Servicer’s expense, or the Seller, at the Seller’s expense, shall take such steps as the Servicer deems necessary to enforce such Insurance Policy, including bringing suit in its name or the name of the Trust and the Owner Trustee and/or the Trust Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Noteholders.

SECTION 4.5. Maintenance of Security Interests in Vehicles.

(a) Consistent with the policies and procedures required by this Agreement, the Servicer shall take such steps on behalf of the Trust as are necessary to maintain perfection of the security interest created by each Receivable in the related Financed Vehicle, including, but not limited to, obtaining the execution by the Obligors and the recording, registering, filing, re-recording, re-filing, and re-registering of all security agreements, financing statements and continuation statements as are necessary to maintain the security interest granted by the Obligors under the respective Receivables. The Trust Collateral Agent hereby authorizes the Servicer, and the Servicer agrees, to take any and all steps necessary to re-perfect such security interest on behalf of the Trust as necessary because of the relocation of a Financed Vehicle or for any other reason. In the event that the assignment of a Receivable to the Trust is insufficient, without a notation on the related Financed Vehicle’s certificate of title, or without fulfilling any additional administrative requirements under the laws of the state in which the Financed Vehicle is located, to perfect a security interest in the related Financed Vehicle in favor of the Trust, the Servicer hereby agrees that the designation of AmeriCredit, an Originating Affiliate or a Titled Third-Party Lender (which may be accomplished by the use of a properly registered DBA name in the applicable jurisdiction) as the secured party on the Lien Certificate is in its capacity as Servicer as agent of the Trust.

 

33


(b) Upon the occurrence of a Servicer Termination Event, the Servicer or the successor Servicer (if no successor Servicer has been appointed, then the Trust Collateral Agent) shall take or cause to be taken such action as may, in the Opinion of Counsel to the Majority Noteholders, be necessary to perfect or re-perfect the security interests in the Financed Vehicles securing the Receivables in the name of the Trust by amending the title documents of such Financed Vehicles or by such other reasonable means as may, in the Opinion of Counsel to the Majority Noteholders, be necessary or prudent.

AmeriCredit hereby agrees to pay all expenses related to such perfection or reperfection and to take all action necessary therefor. AmeriCredit hereby appoints the Trust Collateral Agent as its attorney-in-fact to take any and all steps required to be performed by AmeriCredit pursuant to this Section 4.5(b) (it being understood that and agreed that the Trust Collateral Agent shall have no obligation to take such steps with respect to all perfection or reperfection, except as pursuant to the Basic Documents to which it is a party and to which AmeriCredit has paid all expenses), including execution of Lien Certificates or any other documents in the name and stead of AmeriCredit (which may be accomplished by the use of a properly registered DBA name in the applicable jurisdiction), and the Trust Collateral Agent hereby accepts such appointment.

SECTION 4.6. Covenants, Representations, and Warranties of Servicer. By its execution and delivery of this Agreement, the Servicer makes the following representations, warranties and covenants on which the Trust Collateral Agent relies in accepting the Receivables and on which the Trustee relies in authenticating the Notes.

(a) The Servicer covenants as follows:

(i) Liens in Force. The Financed Vehicle securing each Receivable shall not be released in whole or in part from the security interest granted by the Receivable, except upon payment in full of the Receivable or as otherwise contemplated herein;

(ii) No Impairment. The Servicer shall do nothing to impair the rights of the Trust or the Noteholders in the Receivables, the Dealer Agreements, the Auto Loan Purchase and Sale Agreements, the Dealer Assignments, the Third-Party Lender Assignments, the Insurance Policies or the Other Conveyed Property except as otherwise expressly provided herein;

(iii) No Amendments. The Servicer shall not extend or otherwise amend the terms of any Receivable, except in accordance with Section 4.2; and

(iv) Restrictions on Liens. The Servicer shall not (A) create, incur or suffer to exist, or agree to create, incur or suffer to exist, or consent to cause or permit in the future (upon the happening of a contingency or otherwise) the creation, incurrence or existence of any Lien or restriction on transferability of the Receivables except for the Lien in favor of the Trust Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Noteholders and the restrictions on transferability imposed by this Agreement or (B) sign or file under the Uniform Commercial Code of any jurisdiction any financing statement which names AmeriCredit or the Servicer as a debtor, or sign any security agreement authorizing any secured party thereunder to file such financing statement, with respect to the Receivables, except in each case any such instrument solely securing the rights and preserving the Lien of the Trust Collateral Agent, for the benefit of the Noteholders.

 

34


(b) The Servicer represents, warrants and covenants as of the Closing Date as to itself that the representations and warranties set forth on the Schedule of Representations attached hereto as Schedule B are true and correct; provided that such representations and warranties contained therein and herein shall not apply to any entity other than AmeriCredit.

SECTION 4.7. Purchase of Receivables Upon Breach of Covenant. Upon discovery by any of the Servicer, a Responsible Officer of the Trust Collateral Agent, the Owner Trustee or a Responsible Officer of the Trustee of a breach of any of the covenants set forth in Sections 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 4.5(a) or 4.6 hereof, the party discovering such breach shall give prompt written notice to the others; provided, however, that the failure to give any such notice shall not affect any obligation of AmeriCredit as Servicer under this Section. As of the second Accounting Date following its discovery or receipt of notice of any breach of any covenant set forth in Sections 3.4, 4.5(a) or 4.6 hereof which materially and adversely affects the interests of the Noteholders in any Receivable (including any Liquidated Receivable) (or, at AmeriCredit’s election, the first Accounting Date so following) or the related Financed Vehicle, AmeriCredit shall, unless such breach shall have been cured in all material respects, purchase from the Trust the Receivable affected by such breach and, on the related Determination Date, AmeriCredit shall pay the related Purchase Amount. It is understood and agreed that the obligation of AmeriCredit to purchase any Receivable (including any Liquidated Receivable) with respect to which such a breach has occurred and is continuing shall, if such obligation is fulfilled, constitute the sole remedy against AmeriCredit for such breach available to the Noteholders, the Issuer, the Owner Trustee or the Trust Collateral Agent; provided, however, that AmeriCredit shall indemnify the Trust, the Owner Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent, the Trustee and the Noteholders from and against all costs, expenses, losses, damages, claims and liabilities, including reasonable fees and expenses of counsel, which may be asserted against or incurred by any of them as a result of third party claims arising out of the events or facts giving rise to such breach. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, AmeriCredit will not be required to repurchase Receivables due solely to the Servicer’s not having received Lien Certificates that have been properly applied for from the Registrar of Titles in the applicable states for such Receivables unless (i) such Lien Certificates shall not have been received with respect to Receivables with Principal Balances which total more than 1.0% of the Aggregate Principal Balance as of the 180th day after the Closing Date, in which case AmeriCredit shall be required to repurchase a sufficient number of such Receivables to cause the aggregate Principal Balances of the remaining Receivables for which no such Lien Certificate shall have been received to be no greater than 1.0% of the Aggregate Principal Balance as of such date or (ii) such Lien Certificates shall not have been received as of the 240th day after the Closing Date. This Section shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the earlier removal or resignation of the Trustee and/or the Trust Collateral Agent.

 

35


SECTION 4.8. Total Servicing Fee; Payment of Certain Expenses by Servicer. On each Distribution Date, the Servicer shall be entitled to receive out of the Collection Account the Base Servicing Fee and any Supplemental Servicing Fee for the related Collection Period (together, the “Servicing Fee”) pursuant to Section 5.7. The Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its activities under this Agreement (including taxes imposed on the Servicer, expenses incurred in connection with distributions and reports made by the Servicer to the Noteholders and all other fees and expenses of the Owner Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent or the Trustee; provided, however, the Servicer shall not be required to pay taxes levied or assessed against the Trust or claims against the Trust in respect of indemnification unless such taxes and claims are expressly stated to be for the account of AmeriCredit). The Servicer shall be liable for the fees and expenses of the Owner Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent, the Trustee, the Custodian, the Lockbox Bank (and any fees under the Lockbox Account Agreement), the Lockbox Processor (and any fees under the Lockbox Processing Agreement) and the Independent Accountants. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Servicer shall not be AmeriCredit, a successor to AmeriCredit as Servicer permitted by Section 9.3 shall not be liable for taxes levied or assessed against the Trust or claims against the Trust in respect of indemnification, or the fees and expenses referred to above.

SECTION 4.9. Servicer’s Certificate.

No later than noon Eastern time on each Determination Date, the Servicer shall deliver (facsimile delivery being acceptable) to the Trustee, the Owner Trustee and the Trust Collateral Agent the monthly Servicer’s Certificate. The Servicer will also deliver the Servicer’s Certificate to each Rating Agency on the same date the Servicer’s Certificate is publicly available (provided that if the Servicer’s Certificate is not made publicly available, the Servicer will deliver it to each Rating Agency, no later than the 15th of each month (or if not a Business Day, the next succeeding Business Day)). The Servicer’s Certificate will be executed by a Responsible Officer of the Servicer and contain among other things: (i) all information necessary to enable the Trust Collateral Agent to make the distributions required by Sections 5.7(a) and 5.7(b), (ii) a listing of all Purchased Receivables and Sold Receivables purchased by the Servicer or sold by the Issuer as of the related Accounting Date, identifying the Receivables so purchased by the Servicer or sold by the Issuer and (iii) all information necessary to enable the Trust Collateral Agent to make such statements available to Noteholders as required by Section 5.9. Receivables purchased by the Servicer or by the Seller on the related Accounting Date and each Receivable which became a Liquidated Receivable or which was paid in full during the related Collection Period shall be identified by account number (as set forth in the Schedule of Receivables).

SECTION 4.10. Annual Statement as to Compliance, Notice of Servicer Termination Event.

(a) To the extent required by Section 1123 of Regulation AB, the Servicer, shall deliver to the Trustee, the Owner Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent and each Rating Agency, on or before March 31 (or 90 days after the end of the Issuer’s fiscal year, if other than December 31) of each year (regardless of whether the Seller has ceased filing reports under the Exchange Act), beginning on March 31, 2014, an officer’s certificate signed by any Responsible Officer of the Servicer, dated as of December 31 of the previous calendar year, stating that (i) a review of the activities of the Servicer during the preceding calendar year (or such other period as shall have elapsed from the Closing Date to the date of the first such certificate) and of its performance

(b) The Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee, the Owner Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent and each Rating Agency, promptly after having obtained knowledge thereof, but in no event later than two (2) Business Days thereafter, written notice in an officer’s certificate of any event which with the giving of notice or lapse of time, or both, would become a Servicer Termination Event under Section 9.1(a). The Seller or the Servicer shall deliver to the Trustee, the Owner Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent, the Servicer or the Seller (as applicable) and each Rating Agency promptly after having obtained knowledge thereof, but in no event later than two (2) Business Days thereafter, written notice in an officer’s certificate of any event which with the giving of notice or lapse of time, or both, would become a Servicer Termination Event under any other clause of Section 9.1.

Such required documentation will be delivered to the Servicer by March 15 of each calendar year.

SECTION 4.11. Annual Independent Public Accountants’ Reports.

(a) The Servicer shall cause a firm of nationally recognized independent certified public accountants (the “Independent Accountants”), who may also render other services to the Servicer or its Affiliates, to deliver to the Trustee, the Owner Trustee and the Trust Collateral Agent, on or before March 31 (or 90 days after the end of the Issuer’s fiscal year, if other than December 31) of each year, beginning in March 31, 2014, a report, dated as of December 31 of the preceding calendar year, addressed to the board of directors of the Servicer, providing its attestation report on the servicing assessment delivered pursuant to Section 4.10(c), including disclosure of any material instance of non-compliance, as required by Rule 13a-18 and 15d-18 of the Exchange Act and Item 1122(b) of Regulation AB.

The Servicer shall provide to representatives of the Trustee, the Owner Trustee and the Trust Collateral Agent reasonable access to the documentation regarding the Receivables. In each case, such access shall be afforded without charge but only upon reasonable request and during normal business hours. Nothing in this Section shall affect the obligation of the Servicer to observe any applicable law prohibiting disclosure of information regarding the Obligors, and the failure of the Servicer to provide access as provided in this Section as a result of such obligation shall not constitute a breach of this Section.

ARTICLE V

Trust Accounts; Distributions; Statements to Noteholders

SECTION 5.1. Establishment of Trust Accounts.

(a) (i)

(i) The Trust Collateral Agent, on behalf of the Noteholders, shall establish and maintain in its own name an Eligible Deposit Account (the “Collection Account”), bearing a designation clearly indicating that the funds deposited therein are held for the benefit of the Trust Collateral Agent on behalf of the Noteholders. The Collection Account shall initially be established with the Trust Collateral Agent.

(ii) The Trust Collateral Agent, on behalf of the Noteholders, shall establish and maintain in its own name an Eligible Deposit Account (the “Note Distribution Account”), bearing a designation clearly indicating that the funds deposited therein are held for the benefit of the Trust Collateral Agent on behalf of the Noteholders. The Note Distribution Account shall initially be established with the Trust Collateral Agent.

(iii) The Trust Collateral Agent, on behalf of the Noteholders, shall establish and maintain in its own name an Eligible Deposit Account (the “Reserve Account”), bearing a designation clearly indicating that the funds deposited therein are held for the benefit of the Trust Collateral Agent on behalf of the Noteholders. The Reserve Account shall initially be established with the Trust Collateral Agent.

(b) Funds on deposit in the Collection Account, the Reserve Account and the Note Distribution Account (collectively, the “Trust Accounts”) shall be invested by the Trust Collateral Agent (or any custodian with respect to funds on deposit in any such account) in Eligible Investments selected in writing by the Servicer (pursuant to standing instructions or otherwise). Absent receipt of such written investment direction from the Servicer, funds on deposit in the Trust Accounts shall be held uninvested. All such Eligible Investments shall be held by or on behalf of the Trust Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Noteholders. Other than as permitted by the Rating Agencies, funds on deposit in any Trust Account shall be invested in Eligible Investments that will mature so that such funds will be available at the close of business on the Business Day immediately preceding the following Distribution Date. All Eligible Investments will be held to maturity. Each institution at which the relevant Trust Account is maintained shall invest the funds therein as directed in writing by the Servicer in Eligible Investments.

(c) All Investment Earnings of moneys deposited in each Trust Account shall be deposited (or caused to be deposited) in the Collection Account on each Distribution Date by the Trust Collateral Agent and applied as Available Funds on such Distribution Date, and any loss resulting from such investments shall be charged to the related Trust Account. The Servicer will not direct the Trust Collateral Agent to make any investment of any funds held in any of the Trust Accounts unless the security interest granted and perfected in such account will continue to be perfected in such investment, in either case without any further action by any Person, and, in connection with any direction to the Trust Collateral Agent to make any such investment, if requested by the Trust Collateral Agent, the Servicer shall deliver to the Trust Collateral Agent an Opinion of Counsel, acceptable to the Trust Collateral Agent, to such effect.

 

39


(d) The Trust Collateral Agent shall not in any way be held liable by reason of any insufficiency in any of the Trust Accounts resulting from any loss on any Eligible Investment included therein except for losses attributable to the Trust Collateral Agent’s negligence or bad faith or its failure to make payments on such Eligible Investments issued by the Trust Collateral Agent, in its commercial capacity as principal obligor and not as Trust Collateral Agent or as Trustee, in accordance with their terms.

(e) If (i) the Servicer shall have failed to give investment directions in writing for any funds on deposit in the Trust Accounts to the Trust Collateral Agent by 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time (or such other time as may be agreed by the Issuer and Trust Collateral Agent) on any Business Day; or (ii) a Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and is continuing with respect to the Notes but the Notes shall not have been declared due and payable, or, if such Notes shall have been declared due and payable following an Event of Default, amounts collected or received from the Trust Property are being applied as if there had not been such a declaration; then the Trust Collateral Agent shall, to the fullest extent practicable, invest and reinvest funds in the Trust Accounts in accordance with the instructions outlined in the most recent investment direction letter between the Servicer and the Trust Collateral Agent.

(f) (i) The Trust Collateral Agent shall possess all right, title and interest in all funds on deposit from time to time in the Trust Accounts and in all proceeds thereof for the benefit of the Noteholders and all such funds, investments, proceeds and income shall be part of the Owner Trust Estate. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Trust Accounts shall be under the sole dominion and control of the Trust Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Noteholders. If, at any time, any of the Trust Accounts ceases to be an Eligible Deposit Account, the Trust Collateral Agent (or the Servicer on its behalf) shall within five Business Days (or such longer period as to which each Rating Agency may consent) establish a new Trust Account as an Eligible Deposit Account and shall transfer any cash and/or any investments to such new Trust Account. In connection with the foregoing, the Servicer agrees that, in the event that any of the Trust Accounts are not accounts with the Trust Collateral Agent, the Servicer shall notify the Trust Collateral Agent in writing promptly upon any of such Trust Accounts ceasing to be an Eligible Deposit Account.

    (ii) With respect to the Trust Account Property, the Trust Collateral Agent agrees that:

(A) any Trust Account Property that is held in deposit accounts shall be held solely in the Eligible Deposit Accounts; and, except as otherwise provided herein, each such Eligible Deposit Account shall be subject to the exclusive custody and control of the Trust Collateral Agent, and the Trust Collateral Agent shall have sole signature authority with respect thereto;

(B) any Trust Account Property that constitutes Physical Property shall be delivered to the Trust Collateral Agent in accordance with paragraph (a) of the definition of “Delivery” and shall be held, pending maturity or disposition, solely by the Trust Collateral Agent or a securities intermediary (as such term is defined in Section 8-102(14) of the UCC) acting solely for the Trust Collateral Agent;

 

40


(C) the “securities intermediary’s jurisdiction” for purposes of Section 8-110 of the UCC shall be the State of New York;

(D) any Trust Account Property that is a book-entry security held through the Federal Reserve System pursuant to Federal book-entry regulations shall be delivered in accordance with paragraph (b) of the definition of “Delivery” and shall be maintained by the Trust Collateral Agent, pending maturity or disposition, through continued book-entry registration of such Trust Account Property as described in such paragraph;

(E) any Trust Account Property that is an “uncertificated security” or a “security entitlement” under Article 8 of the UCC and that is not governed by clause (D) above shall be delivered to the Trust Collateral Agent in accordance with paragraph (c) or (d), if applicable, of the definition of “Delivery” and shall be maintained by the Trust Collateral Agent, pending maturity or disposition, through continued registration of the Trust Collateral Agent’s (or its nominee’s) ownership of such security; and

(F) any cash that is Trust Account Property shall be considered a “financial asset” under Article 8 of the UCC.

(g) The Servicer shall have the power to instruct the Trust Collateral Agent to make withdrawals and payments from the Trust Accounts for the purpose of permitting the Servicer and the Trust Collateral Agent to carry out their respective duties hereunder.

SECTION 5.2. [Reserved]

SECTION 5.3. Certain Reimbursements to the Servicer. The Servicer will be entitled to be reimbursed from amounts on deposit in the Collection Account with respect to a Collection Period for amounts previously deposited in the Collection Account but later determined by the Servicer to have resulted from mistaken deposits or postings or checks returned for insufficient funds. The amount to be reimbursed hereunder shall be paid to the Servicer on the related Distribution Date pursuant to Section 5.7(a)(i) upon certification by the Servicer of such amounts and the provision of such information to the Trust Collateral Agent. The Servicer will additionally be entitled to receive from amounts on deposit in the Collection Account with respect to a Collection Period any amounts paid by Obligors that were deposited in the Lockbox Account but that do not relate to (i) principal and interest payments due on the Receivables and (ii) any fees or expenses related to extensions due on the Receivables.

 

41


SECTION 5.4. Application of Collections. All collections for the Collection Period shall be applied by the Servicer as follows:

(a) With respect to each Receivable (other than a Purchased Receivable or a Sold Receivable), payments by or on behalf of the Obligor, (other than Supplemental Servicing Fees with respect to such Receivable, to the extent collected) shall be applied to interest and principal in accordance with the Simple Interest Method.

(b) All amounts collected that are payable to the Servicer as Supplemental Servicing Fees hereunder shall be deposited in the Collection Account and paid to the Servicer in accordance with Section 5.7(a).

SECTION 5.5. [Reserved].

(b) The proceeds of any purchase or sale of the assets of the Trust described in Section 10.1 hereof shall be deposited in the Collection Account.

SECTION 5.7. Distributions.

(a) On each Distribution Date, the Trust Collateral Agent shall (based solely on the information contained in the Servicer’s Certificate delivered with respect to the related Determination Date) apply or cause to be applied the sum of (x) the Available Funds (after withdrawing amounts deposited in error and Liquidation Proceeds relating to Purchased Receivables) for the related Collection Period and (y) the Reserve Account Withdrawal Amount for such Distribution Date (such sum, the “Total Available Funds”) to distribute the following amounts from the Collection Account unless otherwise specified, to the extent of the sources of funds stated to be available therefore, and in the following order of priority:

(i) from the Total Available Funds, to the Servicer, (1) the Base Servicing Fee for the related Collection Period, (2) any Supplemental Servicing Fees for the related Collection Period, (3) any amounts specified in Section 5.3 and (4) to the extent the Servicer has not reimbursed itself in respect of such amounts pursuant to Section 5.3, and to the extent not retained by the Servicer, and to pay to AmeriCredit any amounts paid by Obligors during the preceding calendar month that did not relate to (x) principal and interest payments due on the Receivables and (y) any fees or expenses related to extensions due on the Receivables;

(ii) from the Total Available Funds, to each of the Lockbox Bank, the Lockbox Processor, the Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent and the Owner Trustee, their respective accrued and unpaid fees, expenses and indemnities (in each case, to the extent such fees, expenses or indemnities have not been previously paid by the Servicer, and provided that such fees, expenses and indemnities shall not exceed (x) $100,000 in the aggregate in any calendar year to the Owner Trustee and (y) $100,000 in the aggregate in any calendar year to the Lockbox Bank, the Lockbox Processor, the Trust Collateral Agent and the Trustee);

(c) In the event that the Collection Account is maintained with an institution other than the Trust Collateral Agent, the Servicer shall instruct and cause such institution to make all deposits and distributions pursuant to Sections 5.7(a) and 5.7(b) on the related Distribution Date.

In the event that a Noteholder wishes to apply for a refund of any such withholding tax, the Trust Collateral Agent shall reasonably cooperate with such Noteholder in making such claim so long as such Noteholder agrees to reimburse the Trust Collateral Agent for any out-of-pocket expenses (including legal fees and expenses) incurred.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the final distribution in respect of any Note (whether on the Final Scheduled Distribution Date or otherwise) will be payable only upon presentation and surrender of such Note at the office or agency maintained for that purpose by the Note Registrar pursuant to Section 2.4 of the Indenture.

(f) Subject to Section 5.1 and this section, monies received by the Trust Collateral Agent hereunder need not be segregated in any manner except to the extent required by law and may be deposited under such general conditions as may be prescribed by law, and the Trust Collateral Agent shall not be liable for any interest thereon.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if each Rating Agency then rating the Notes notifies the Seller (who shall send such notification to the Trust Collateral Agent) in writing that the use of any such new formula, and any decrease in the amount of the Specified Reserve Balance or change in the manner by which the Reserve Account is funded, will not result in the qualification, reduction or withdrawal of its then current rating of the Notes then the Specified Reserve Balance will be determined in accordance with such new formula and this Agreement will be amended to reflect such new formula without the consent of any Noteholder.

(iii) On each Distribution Date, the Servicer shall instruct the Trust Collateral Agent (based on the information contained in the Servicer’s Certificate delivered on the related Determination Date) (A) if the amount on deposit in the Reserve Account (without taking into account any amount on deposit in the Reserve Account representing net investment earnings) is less than the Specified Reserve Balance, in which case the Trust Collateral Agent shall, after payment of any amounts required to be distributed pursuant to clauses (i) through (xviii) of Section 5.7(a) deposit in the Reserve Account the Reserve Account Deposit Amount pursuant to Section 5.7(a)(xix), and (B) if the amount on deposit in the Reserve Account, after giving effect to all other deposits thereto and withdrawals therefrom to be made on such Distribution Date is greater than the Specified Reserve Balance, in which case the Trust Collateral Agent shall distribute the amount of such excess as part of Available Funds on such Distribution Date.

 

46


(b) On each Distribution Date, the Servicer shall instruct the Trust Collateral Agent (based on the information contained in the Servicer’s Certificate delivered on the related Determination Date) to withdraw the Reserve Account Withdrawal Amount from the Reserve Account and deposit such amounts in the Collection Account to be included as Total Available Funds for that Distribution Date.

(c) Amounts properly transferred to the Certificate Distribution Account for payment to the Certificateholder pursuant to this Agreement shall not be available to the Trust Collateral Agent or the Trust for the purpose of making deposits to the Reserve Account, or making payments to the Noteholders, nor shall the Certificateholder be required to refund any amount properly received by them.

The Trust Collateral Agent’s internet website will be located at www.sf.citidirect.com or at such other address as the Trust Collateral Agent shall notify the Noteholders from time to time. For assistance with regard to this service, Noteholders can call the Trust Collateral Agent’s website assistance line at (888) 855-9695. The Trust Collateral Agent shall have the right to change the way the statements referred to in Section 5.9(a) above are distributed in order to make such distribution more convenient and/or more accessible to the parties entitled to receive such statements so long as such statements are only provided to the then current Noteholders. The Trust Collateral Agent shall provide notification of any such change to all parties entitled to receive such statements in the manner described in Section 12.3 hereof, Section 11.4 of the Indenture or Section 11.5 of the Indenture, as appropriate.

(g) AmeriCredit shall indemnify the Trustee, the Owner Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent and the respective officers, directors, agents and employees thereof against any and all loss, liability or expense, (other than overhead and expenses incurred in the normal course of business) incurred by each of them in connection with the acceptance or administration of the Trust and the performance of their duties under the Basic Documents other than if such loss, liability or expense was incurred by the Trustee, the Owner Trustee or the Trust Collateral Agent as a result of any such entity’s willful misconduct, bad faith or negligence.

 

55


(h) Indemnification under this Article shall include, without limitation, reasonable fees and expenses of counsel and expenses of litigation. If the Servicer has made any indemnity payments pursuant to this Article and the recipient thereafter collects any of such amounts from others, the recipient shall promptly repay such amounts collected to the Servicer, without interest.

(i) When the Trustee or the Trust Collateral Agent incurs expenses after the occurrence of a Servicer Termination Event specified in Section 9.1(d) or (e) with respect to the Servicer, the 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.

SECTION 8.3. Merger or Consolidation of, or Assumption of the Obligations of the Servicer.

AmeriCredit shall not merge or consolidate with any other Person, convey, transfer or lease substantially all its assets as an entirety to another Person, or permit any other Person to become the successor to AmeriCredit’s business unless, after the merger, consolidation, conveyance, transfer, lease or succession, the successor or surviving entity shall be capable of fulfilling the duties of AmeriCredit contained in this Agreement and shall be acceptable to the Majority Noteholders, and shall be an eligible servicer. Any corporation (i) into which AmeriCredit may be merged or consolidated, (ii) resulting from any merger or consolidation to which AmeriCredit shall be a party, (iii) which acquires by conveyance, transfer, or lease substantially all of the assets of AmeriCredit, or (iv) succeeding to the business of AmeriCredit, in any of the foregoing cases shall execute an agreement of assumption to perform every obligation of AmeriCredit under this Agreement and, whether or not such assumption agreement is executed, shall be the successor to AmeriCredit under this Agreement without the execution or filing of any paper or any further act on the part of any of the parties to this Agreement, anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall be deemed to release AmeriCredit from any obligation. AmeriCredit shall provide notice of any merger, consolidation or succession pursuant to this Section to the Owner Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent, the Noteholders and each Rating Agency. Notwithstanding the foregoing, AmeriCredit shall not merge or consolidate with any other Person or permit any other Person to become a successor to AmeriCredit’s business, unless (x) immediately after giving effect to such transaction, no representation or warranty made pursuant to Section 4.6 shall have been breached (for purposes hereof, such representations and warranties shall speak as of the date of the consummation of such transaction), (y) AmeriCredit shall have delivered to the Owner Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent, the Trustee and the Rating Agencies an Officer’s Certificate and an Opinion of Counsel each stating that such consolidation, merger or succession and such agreement of assumption comply with this Section and that all conditions precedent, if any, provided for in this Agreement relating to such transaction have been complied with, and (z) AmeriCredit shall have delivered to the Owner Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent, the Trustee and the Rating Agencies an Opinion of Counsel, stating in the opinion of such counsel, either (A) all financing statements and continuation statements and amendments thereto have been executed and filed that are necessary to preserve and protect the interest of the Trust in the Receivables and the Other Conveyed Property and reciting the details of the filings or (B) no such action shall be necessary to preserve and protect such interest.

 

56


SECTION 8.4. Limitation on Liability of Servicer and Others.

Neither AmeriCredit nor any of the directors or officers or employees or agents of AmeriCredit shall be under any liability to the Trust or the Noteholders, except as provided in this Agreement, for any action taken or for refraining from the taking of any action pursuant to this Agreement; provided, however, that this provision shall not protect AmeriCredit or any such person against any liability that would otherwise be imposed by reason of a breach of this Agreement or willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence (excluding errors in judgment) in the performance of duties; provided, further, that this provision shall not affect any liability to indemnify the Trust Collateral Agent, the Trustee and the Owner Trustee for costs, taxes, expenses, claims, liabilities, losses or damages paid by the Trust Collateral Agent, the Trustee and the Owner Trustee, in their individual capacities. AmeriCredit and any director, officer, employee or agent of AmeriCredit may rely in good faith on the written advice of counsel or on any document of any kind prima facie properly executed and submitted by any Person respecting any matters arising under this Agreement.

SECTION 8.5. Delegation of Duties. The Servicer may delegate duties under this Agreement to an Affiliate of the Servicer without first obtaining the consent of any Person. The Servicer also may at any time perform through sub-contractors the specific duties of (i) repossession of Financed Vehicles, (ii) tracking Financed Vehicles’ insurance and (iii) pursuing the collection of deficiency balances on certain Liquidated Receivables, in each case, without the consent of the Trust Collateral Agent, the Trustee or the Owner Trustee and may perform other specific duties through such sub-contractors in accordance with Servicer’s customary servicing policies and procedures, with the prior consent of the Trust Collateral Agent. No delegation or sub-contracting by the Servicer of its duties herein in the manner described in this Section 8.5 shall relieve the Servicer of its responsibility with respect to such duties.

SECTION 8.6. Servicer Not to Resign. Subject to the provisions of Section 8.3, the Servicer shall not resign from the obligations and duties imposed on it by this Agreement as Servicer except 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 have a material adverse effect on the Servicer if the Majority Noteholders do not elect to waive the obligations of the Servicer to perform the duties which render it legally unable to act or to delegate those duties to another Person. Any such determination permitting the resignation of the Servicer shall be evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel to such effect delivered and acceptable to the Trust Collateral Agent and the Owner Trustee. No resignation of the Servicer shall become effective until an entity acceptable to the Majority Noteholders shall have assumed the responsibilities and obligations of the Servicer.

(a) Any failure by the Servicer to deliver to the Trust Collateral Agent for distribution to Noteholders any proceeds or payment required to be so delivered under the terms of this Agreement that continues unremedied for a period of two Business Days (one Business Day with respect to payment of Purchase Amounts) after written notice is received by the Servicer from the Trust Collateral Agent or after discovery of such failure by a Responsible Officer of the Servicer; or

(b) Failure by the Servicer to deliver to the Trust Collateral Agent the Servicer’s Certificate by the first Business Day prior to the Distribution Date, or failure on the part of the Servicer to observe its covenants and agreements set forth in Section 8.3; or

(d) The entry of a decree or order for relief by a court or regulatory authority having jurisdiction in respect of the Servicer in an involuntary case under the federal bankruptcy laws, as now or hereafter in effect, or another present or future, federal bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law, or appointing a receiver, liquidator, assignee, trustee, custodian, sequestrator or other similar official of the Servicer, or of any substantial part of its property or 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 60 consecutive days or the commencement of an involuntary case under the federal bankruptcy laws, as now or hereinafter in effect, or another present or future federal or state bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law and such case is not dismissed within 60 days; or

(f) Any representation, warranty or statement of the Servicer made in this Agreement or any certificate, report or other writing delivered pursuant hereto shall prove to be incorrect in any material respect as of the time when the same shall have been made, and the incorrectness of such representation, warranty or statement has a material adverse effect on the Trust or the Noteholders and, within 30 days after knowledge thereof by the Servicer or after written notice thereof shall have been given to the Servicer by the Trust Collateral Agent, the circumstances or condition in respect of which such representation, warranty or statement was incorrect shall not have been eliminated or otherwise cured.

SECTION 9.2. Consequences of a Servicer Termination Event. If a Servicer Termination Event shall occur and be continuing, the Trust Collateral Agent may, or at the direction of the Majority Noteholders shall, by notice given in writing to the Servicer (and to the Trust Collateral Agent if given by the Noteholders) terminate all of the rights and obligations of the Servicer under this Agreement. On or after the receipt by the Servicer of such written notice or upon termination of the term of the Servicer, all authority, power, obligations and responsibilities of the Servicer under this Agreement, whether with respect to the Notes, the Certificate or the Other Conveyed Property or otherwise, shall pass to, be vested in and become obligations and responsibilities of the successor Servicer appointed by the Majority Noteholders; provided, however, that the successor Servicer shall have no liability with respect to any obligation which was required to be performed by the terminated Servicer prior to the date that the successor Servicer becomes the Servicer or any claim of a third party based on any alleged action or inaction of the terminated Servicer. The successor Servicer is authorized and empowered by this Agreement to execute and deliver, on behalf of the terminated Servicer, as attorney-in-fact or otherwise, any and all documents and other instruments and to do or accomplish all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect the purposes of such notice of termination, whether to complete the transfer and endorsement of the Receivables and the Other Conveyed Property and related documents to show the Trust as lienholder or secured party on the related Lien Certificates, or otherwise. The terminated Servicer agrees to cooperate with the successor Servicer in effecting the termination of the responsibilities and rights of the terminated Servicer under this Agreement, including, without limitation, the transfer to the successor Servicer for administration by it of all cash amounts that shall at the time be held by the terminated Servicer for deposit, or have been deposited by the terminated Servicer, in the Collection Account or thereafter received with respect to the Receivables and the delivery to the successor Servicer of all Receivable Files, Monthly Records and Collection Records and a computer tape in readable form as of the most recent Business Day containing all information necessary to enable the successor Servicer to service the Receivables and the Other Conveyed Property. If requested by the Controlling Party (acting at the written direction of the Majority Noteholders), the successor Servicer shall terminate the Lockbox Agreements and direct the Obligors to make all payments under the Receivables directly to the successor Servicer (in which event the successor Servicer shall process such payments in accordance with Section 4.2(e)), or to a lockbox established by the successor Servicer at the direction of the Majority Noteholders, at the successor Servicer’s expense. The terminated Servicer shall grant the Trust Collateral Agent, the successor Servicer and the Majority Noteholders reasonable access to the terminated Servicer’s premises at the terminated Servicer’s expense.

SECTION 9.3. Appointment of Successor.

(a) On and after the time the Servicer receives a notice of termination pursuant to Section 9.2 or upon the resignation of the Servicer pursuant to Section 8.6, the Controlling Party (acting at the written direction of the Majority Noteholders) shall appoint an eligible servicer as successor Servicer or may petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint a Person that it determines is competent to perform the duties of the Servicer hereunder as successor Servicer. Pending appointment pursuant to the preceding sentence, the outgoing Servicer shall continue to act as Servicer until a successor has been appointed and accepted such appointment. Any successor Servicer shall be the successor in all respects to the Servicer in its capacity as servicer under this Agreement and the transactions set forth or provided for in this Agreement, and shall be subject to all the rights, responsibilities, restrictions, duties, liabilities and termination provisions relating thereto placed on the Servicer by the terms and provisions of this Agreement except as otherwise stated herein. The Trust Collateral Agent and such successor shall take such action, consistent with this Agreement, as shall be necessary to effectuate any such succession. If a successor Servicer is acting as Servicer hereunder, it shall be subject to termination under Section 9.2 upon the occurrence of any Servicer Termination Event applicable to it as Servicer. If no Person has accepted its appointment as successor Servicer when the predecessor Servicer ceases to act as Servicer in accordance with Section 9.2 or Section 8.6, the Trust Collateral Agent or other eligible successor servicer appointed by the Trust Collateral Agent and who has accepted such appointment, will, without further action, be automatically appointed the successor Servicer. Notwithstanding the above, if the Trust Collateral Agent is unwilling or legally unable to act as successor Servicer, it may appoint, or petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint, an institution whose business includes the servicing of motor vehicle receivables, as successor Servicer. The Trust Collateral Agent will be released from its duties and obligations as successor Servicer on the date that a new servicer agrees to appointment as successor Servicer hereunder.

(b) Any successor Servicer shall be entitled to such compensation (whether payable out of the Collection Account or otherwise) as the Servicer would have been entitled to under this Agreement if the Servicer had not resigned or been terminated hereunder or such additional compensation as the Majority Noteholders and such successor Servicer may agree on.

SECTION 9.4. Notification to Noteholders. Upon any termination of, or appointment of a successor to, the Servicer, the Trust Collateral Agent shall give prompt written notice thereof to each Noteholder and to the Seller (who shall promptly deliver such notice to the Rating Agencies).

SECTION 9.5. Waiver of Past Defaults. The Majority Noteholders may, on behalf of all Noteholders, waive any default by the Servicer in the performance of its obligations hereunder and its consequences. Upon any such waiver of a past default, such default shall cease to exist, and any Servicer Termination Event arising therefrom shall be deemed to have been remedied for every purpose of this Agreement and the Basic Documents. No such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other default or impair any right consequent thereto.

(b) Upon any sale of the assets of the Trust pursuant to Section 8.1 of the Trust Agreement, the Servicer shall instruct the Trust Collateral Agent to deposit the proceeds from such sale after all payments and reserves therefrom (including the expenses of such sale) have been made (the “Insolvency Proceeds”) in the Collection Account.

(c) Notice of any termination of the Trust shall be given by the Servicer to the Owner Trustee, the Trustee, the Trust Collateral Agent and the Rating Agencies as soon as practicable after the Servicer has received notice thereof.

(d) Following the satisfaction and discharge of the Indenture and the payment in full of the principal of and interest on the Notes, the Certificateholder will succeed to the rights of the Noteholders hereunder and the Certificateholder will succeed to the rights of, and assume the obligations of, the Trust Collateral Agent pursuant to this Agreement.

(g) Upon request, the Servicer shall furnish to the Owner Trustee or to the Trustee, within five Business Days, a list of all Receivables (by contract number and name of Obligor) then held as part of the Trust, together with a reconciliation of such list to the Schedule of Receivables and to each of the Servicer’s Certificates furnished before such request indicating removal of Receivables from the Trust.
