No sale, pledge or other transfer of the 2004-A Certificates (or interest therein) may be made by any Person unless either (i) such sale, pledge or other transfer is made to the Seller, (ii) so long as the 2004-A Certificates are eligible for resale pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act, such sale, pledge or other transfer is made to a person whom the transferor reasonably believes after due inquiry is a “qualified institutional buyer” within the meaning of Rule 144A under the Securities Act (a “Qualified Institutional Buyer”) acting for its own account (and not for the account of others) or as a fiduciary or agent for others (which others also are Qualified Institutional Buyers) to whom notice is given that the sale, pledge or transfer is being made in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act, or (iii) such sale, pledge or other transfer is otherwise made in a transaction exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, in which case (A) the Owner Trustee shall require that both the prospective transferor and the prospective transferee certify to the Owner Trustee and the Seller in writing the facts surrounding

such transfer, which certification shall be in form and substance satisfactory to the Owner Trustee and the Seller, and (B) the Owner Trustee shall require a written opinion of counsel (which will not be at the expense of the Seller or the Owner Trustee) satisfactory to the Seller and the Owner Trustee to the effect that such transfer will not violate the Securities Act. No sale, pledge or other transfer may be made to any one person for 2004-A Certificates with a face amount of less than $2,500,000 (or such other amount as the Seller may determine in order to prevent the Trust from being treated as a “publicly traded partnership” under Section 7704 of the Code, but in no event less than $250,000) and, in the case of any Person acting on behalf of one or more third parties (other than a bank (as defined in Section 3(a)(2) of the Securities Act) acting in its fiduciary capacity), for 2004-A Certificates with a face amount of less than such amount for each such third party. Any attempted transfer in contravention of the immediately preceding restriction will be void ab initio and the purported transferor will continue to be treated as the owner of the 2004-A Certificates for all purposes. Neither the Seller nor the Owner Trustee shall be obligated to register the 2004-A Certificates under the Securities Act, qualify the 2004-A Certificates under the securities laws of any state or provide registration rights to any purchaser or holder thereof.

The Trust was created pursuant to a Trust Agreement, dated as of September 16, 2004 (as amended and supplemented from time to time, the “Trust Agreement”), between the Seller and Chase Manhattan Bank USA, National Association, as owner trustee (the “Owner Trustee”), a summary of certain of the pertinent provisions of which is set forth below. To the extent not otherwise defined herein, the capitalized terms used herein have the meanings assigned to them in the Trust Agreement.

 

This Certificate is one of the duly authorized Certificates designated as “Floating Rate Asset Backed Certificates, Class 2004-A” (the “Certificates”). This Certificate is issued under and is subject to the terms, provisions and conditions of the Trust Agreement, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference and made a part hereof, to which Trust Agreement the Holder of this Certificate by virtue of the acceptance hereof assents and by which such holder is bound.

 

Under the Trust Agreement, there shall be distributed on the 15th day of each month or, if such 15th day is not a Business Day, the next succeeding Business Day, commencing on October 15, 2004 (each, a “Monthly Distribution Date”), to the person in whose name this Certificate is registered on the related Record Date (as defined below), interest accrued hereon to the extent of funds available therefor and such Certificateholder’s fractional undivided interest in the amount of distributions in respect of Certificate Balance to be distributed to Certificateholders on such Monthly Distribution Date. Interest shall accrue on this Certificate at the applicable Certificate Rate (as set forth on the reverse hereof) on the Certificate Balance represented by this Certificate (without reduction for any unreimbursed Trust Charge-Offs or Reallocated Principal Amounts), and interest accrued hereon as of any Monthly Distribution Date but not distributed on such Monthly Distribution Date shall be due on the next Monthly Distribution Date. No distributions of Certificate Balance shall be made on any Certificate until all Notes have been paid (or provided for) in full. The entire unpaid Certificate Balance on this Certificate shall be due and payable on the Monthly Distribution Date in September 2011 (the “Stated Final Distribution Date”). However, the actual distribution in full of the Certificate could occur sooner or later than such date. The “Record Date,” with respect to any Monthly Distribution Date, means the last day of the preceding Collection Period.

The Holder of this Certificate acknowledges and agrees that its rights to receive distributions in respect of this Certificate are subordinated to the rights of the Noteholders as and to the extent described in the Trust Sale and Servicing Agreement and the Indenture.

 

Each Certificateholder or Certificate Owner, by its acceptance of a Certificate (or interest therein), covenants and agrees that such Certificateholder or Certificate Owner, as the case may be, shall not, prior to the date which is one year and one day after the termination of the Trust Agreement, acquiesce, petition or otherwise invoke or cause the Seller to invoke the

process of any court or governmental authority for the purpose of commencing or sustaining a case against the Seller under any federal or state bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or similar law or appointing a receiver, liquidator, assignee, trustee, custodian, sequestrator or other similar official of the Seller or any substantial part of its property, or ordering the winding-up or liquidation of the affairs of the Seller. By its acceptance of this Certificate, the Seller agrees that it shall not be deemed to have approved the commencement of a voluntary proceeding in bankruptcy relating to the Trust for purposes of Section 4.3 of the Trust Agreement unless such commencement was approved by the affirmative vote of all of the members of the Seller’s board of directors.

 

Distributions on this Certificate shall be made as provided in the Trust Agreement without the presentation or surrender of this Certificate or the making of any notation hereon, to each Certificateholder of record on the immediately preceding Record Date either by wire transfer, in immediately available funds, to the account of such Holder at a bank or other entity having appropriate facilities therefor, if such Certificateholder shall have provided to the Certificate Registrar appropriate written instructions at least five Business Days prior to such Record Date, or, if not, by check mailed to such Certificateholder at the address of such Holder appearing in the Certificate Register. Except as otherwise provided in the Trust Agreement and notwithstanding the above, the final distribution on this Certificate shall be made after due notice by the Owner Trustee of the pendency of such distribution and only upon presentation and surrender of this Certificate at the office maintained for such purpose by the Owner Trustee in the City of New York.

 

Reference is hereby made to the further provisions of this Certificate set forth on the reverse hereof, which further provisions shall for all purposes have the same effect as if set forth at this place.

 

Unless the certificate of authentication hereon shall have been executed by an authorized officer of the Owner Trustee by manual signature, this Certificate shall not entitle the holder hereof to any benefit under the Trust Agreement or the Trust Sale and Servicing Agreement or be valid for any purpose.

 

THIS CERTIFICATE SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INTERNAL LAWS OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE, WITHOUT REFERENCE TO THE PRINCIPLES OF CONFLICTS OF LAW THEREOF OR OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION, AND THE OBLIGATIONS, RIGHTS AND REMEDIES OF THE PARTIES HEREUNDER SHALL BE DETERMINED IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH LAWS.

REVERSE OF CERTIFICATE

 

The Certificates do not represent an obligation of, or an interest in, the Seller, the Servicer, General Motors Corporation, the Indenture Trustee, the Owner Trustee or any affiliates of any of them and no recourse may be had against such parties or their assets, except as may be expressly set forth or contemplated herein or in the Trust Agreement or the Basic Documents. In addition, this Certificate is not guaranteed by any governmental agency or instrumentality and is limited in right of payment to certain collections and recoveries with respect to the Receivables held by the Trust (and certain other amounts), all as more specifically set forth herein, in the Trust Agreement and the Trust Sale and Servicing Agreement. A copy of each of the Trust Sale and Servicing Agreement and the Trust Agreement may be examined during normal business hours at the principal office of the Seller, and at such other places, if any, designated by the Seller, by any Certificateholder upon written request.

 

The Trust Agreement permits, with certain exceptions therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modification of the rights and obligations of the Seller and the rights of the Certificateholders under the Trust Agreement at any time by the Seller and the Owner Trustee with the consent of the Noteholders whose Notes evidence not less than a majority of the Outstanding Amount of the Notes as of the close of business on the preceding Monthly Distribution Date and the consent of Certificateholders whose Certificates evidence not less than a majority of the Voting Interests as of the close of business on the preceding Monthly Distribution Date. Any such consent by the Holder of this Certificate shall be conclusive and binding on such Holder and on all future Holders of this Certificate and of any Certificate issued upon the transfer hereof or in exchange herefor or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent is made upon this Certificate. The Trust Agreement also permits the amendment thereof, in certain circumstances, without the consent of the Holders of any of the Certificates or the Notes.

 

The term “Certificate Rate” as used in this Certificate means, with respect to any Monthly Distribution Date, One-Month LIBOR plus 0.50%.

 

As provided in the Trust Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, the transfer of this Certificate is registerable in the Certificate Register upon surrender of this Certificate for registration of transfer at the offices or agencies of the Certificate Registrar maintained by the Owner Trustee in the City of New York, accompanied by (i) a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Owner Trustee and the Certificate Registrar duly executed by the Holder hereof or such Holder’s attorney duly authorized in writing, (ii) any certificate and/or Opinion of Counsel required by Section 9.12(b) of the Trust Agreement, and (iii) if requested by the Seller, the Undertaking Letter required by Section 9.12(a) of the Trust Agreement, and thereupon one or more new Certificates of the same class of authorized denominations evidencing the same aggregate interest in the Trust shall be issued to the designated transferee.

 

The initial Certificate Registrar appointed under the Trust Agreement is JPMorgan Chase Bank.

 

-22-


The Certificates (other than those issued to the Seller or its affiliates) are issuable only as registered Certificates without coupons in denominations of $2,500,000 or greater (or such other amount as the Seller may determine in order to prevent the Trust from being treated as a “publicly traded partnership” under Section 7704 of the Code, but in no event less than $250,000). As provided in the Trust Agreement and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, Certificates are exchangeable for new Certificates of the same class of authorized denominations evidencing the same aggregate denomination, as requested by the Holder surrendering the same; provided, however, that no Certificate (other than those issued to the Seller or its affiliates) may be subdivided upon transfer or exchange in a manner such that the resulting Certificate if it had been sold in the original offering would have had an initial offering price of less than $2,500,000 (or such other amount as the Seller may determine in order to prevent the Trust from being treated as a “publicly traded partnership” under Section 7704 of the Code, but in no event less than $250,000). No service charge shall be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Owner Trustee or the Certificate Registrar may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or governmental charge payable in connection therewith.

 

The Owner Trustee, the Certificate Registrar and any agent of the Owner Trustee or the Certificate Registrar may treat the person in whose name this Certificate is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, and none of the Owner Trustee, the Certificate Registrar or any such agent shall be affected by any notice to the contrary.

 

The obligations and responsibilities created by the Trust Agreement and the Trust created thereby shall terminate upon the distribution to Certificateholders of all amounts required to be paid to them pursuant to the Trust Agreement and the Trust Sale and Servicing Agreement and the disposition of all property held as part of the Trust.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

 

In connection with our proposed purchase of a one or more Floating Rate Asset-Backed Certificates, Class 2004-A (the “Certificates”), representing a fractional undivided interest in the Superior Wholesale Inventory Financing Trust X, issued under a trust agreement, to be dated as of September 16, 2004 (the “Trust Agreement”), between Wholesale Auto Receivables Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Seller”) and Chase Manhattan Bank USA, National Association, as owner trustee, acting thereunder not in its individual capacity but solely as owner trustee of the Trust (the “Owner Trustee”), we confirm that:

 

1. We understand that the Certificate has not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or the securities laws of any jurisdiction and may not be sold except as permitted in the following sentence. We agree, on our own behalf and on behalf of any accounts for which we are acting as hereinafter stated, that such Certificates (or an interest therein) may be resold, pledged or transferred only (i) to the Seller, (ii) so long as such Certificates are eligible for resale pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act (“Rule 144A”), to a person whom the transferor reasonably believes after due inquiry to be a “qualified institutional buyer” as defined in Rule 144A acting for its own account (and not for the account of others) or as a fiduciary or agent for others (which others also are “qualified institutional buyers”) to whom notice is given that the resale, pledge or transfer is being made in reliance on Rule 144A, or (iii) in a sale, pledge or other transfer made in a transaction otherwise exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, in which case (A) the Owner Trustee shall require that both the prospective transferor and the prospective transferee certify to the Owner Trustee and the Seller in writing the facts surrounding such transfer, which certification shall be in form and substance satisfactory to the Owner Trustee and the Seller, and (B) the Owner Trustee shall require a written opinion of counsel (which will not be at the expense of the Seller or the Owner Trustee) satisfactory to the Seller and the Owner Trustee to the effect that such transfer will not violate the Securities Act, in each case in accordance with any applicable securities laws

 


of any state of the United States. We will notify any purchaser of the Certificates (or an interest therein) from us of the above resale restrictions, if then applicable. We further understand that in connection with any transfer of the Certificates (or interest therein) by us that the Seller and the Owner Trustee may request, and if so requested we will furnish, such certification and other information as they may reasonably require to confirm that any such transfer complies with the foregoing restrictions. We understand that no sale, pledge or other transfer may be made to any one person for Certificates (or an interest therein) with a face amount of less than $2,500,000 (or such other amount as the Seller may determine in order to prevent the Trust from being treated as a “publicly traded partnership” under Section 7704 of the United States Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, but in no event less than $250,000) and, in the case of any person acting on behalf of one or more third parties (other than a bank (as defined in Section 3(a)(2) of the Securities Act) acting in its fiduciary capacity), for Certificates with a face amount of less than such amount for each such third party. Any attempted transfer will be void ab initio and the purported transferor will continue to be treated as the owner of the Certificates for all purposes. We understand that no sale, pledge or other transfer of the Certificates may be made to (i) an “employee benefit plan” (as defined in Section 3(3) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”), that is subject to the provisions of Title I of ERISA, (ii) a plan described in Section 4975(e)(1) of the Code or (iii) any entity whose underlying assets include plan assets by reason of investment by an employee benefit plan or plan in such entity.

 

2. We are a “qualified institutional buyer” as defined under Rule 144A under the Securities Act and are acquiring the Certificates (or an interest therein) for our own account (and not for the account of others) or as a fiduciary or agent for others (which others also are “qualified institutional buyers”). We are familiar with Rule 144A under the Securities Act and are aware that the transferor of the Certificates (or an interest therein) and other parties intend to rely on the statements made herein and the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act provided by Rule 144A. We are aware that we (or any account for which we are purchasing) may be required to bear the economic risk of an investment in the Certificate until such time as the trust terminates, and that we (or such account) are able to bear such risk for such period.

 

3. You are entitled to rely upon this letter and you are irrevocably authorized to produce this letter or a copy hereof to any interested party in any administrative or legal proceeding or official inquiry with respect to the matters covered hereby.

 

Very truly yours,
(Name of Purchaser)
