This Agreement, including each Confirmation and each Swap Transaction, is subject to the 2000 ISDA Definitions, as amended, supplemented, updated, and superseded from time to time (the “Definitions”), as published by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. (“ISDA”) and will be governed in all respects by the Definitions (except that references to “Swap Transactions” shall be deemed to be references to “Transactions”). The Definitions are incorporated by reference in, and made part of, this Agreement and each Confirmation as if set forth in full in this Agreement and such Confirmations. In the event of any inconsistency between the provisions of this Agreement and the Definitions, this Agreement will prevail (and, in the event of any inconsistency between any Confirmation and the Definitions, the Confirmation will control). Any reference in a Confirmation to any Definitions which are amended or supplemented in this Schedule shall be deemed to be a reference to such Definitions as so amended or supplemented, unless the Confirmation states, by specific reference to any such amendment or supplement, that such amendment or supplement will not apply in respect of the Transaction to which such Confirmation relates.
 
(b)
Downgrade Provisions.
 
(i)
Second Trigger Failure Condition. So long as the Second Rating Trigger Requirements apply, Party A shall, at its own expense use commercially reasonable efforts, as soon as reasonably practicable, to either (i) furnish an Eligible Guarantee of Party A’s obligations under this Agreement from a guarantor that maintains the First Trigger Required Ratings and/or the Second Trigger Required Ratings or (ii) obtain an Eligible Replacement pursuant to Part 5(f) below that assumes the obligations of Party A under this Agreement (through a novation or other assignment and assumption agreement in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Party B) or replaces the outstanding Transactions hereunder with transactions on identical terms, except that Party A shall be replaced as counterparty.
 
(ii)

(“Fitch”). For the avoidance of doubt, the parties hereby acknowledge and agree that notwithstanding the occurrence of a Collateralization Event, this Agreement and each Transaction hereunder shall continue to be a Swap Agreement for purposes of the Trust Agreement.

12

 
Rating Agency Condition” shall mean first receiving prior written confirmation from S&P and Fitch that their then-current ratings of the rated Certificates will not be downgraded or withdrawn by such Rating Agency.
 
(iii)
Ratings Event.

Settlement Amount” means, with respect to any Early Termination Date, an amount (as determined by Party B) equal to the Termination Currency Equivalent of the amount (whether positive or negative) of any Market Quotation for the relevant Terminated Transaction or group of Terminated Transactions that is accepted by Party B so as to become legally binding; provided that:
 
(A)
If, on the day falling ten Local Business Days after the day on which the Early Termination Date is designated or such later day as Party B may specify in writing to Party A (but in either case no later than the Early Termination Date) (such day the “Latest Settlement Amount Determination Day”), no Market Quotation for the relevant Terminated Transaction or group of Terminated Transactions has been accepted by Party B so as to become legally binding and one or more Market Quotations have been made and remain capable of becoming legally binding upon acceptance, the Settlement Amount shall equal the Termination Currency Equivalent of the amount (whether positive or negative) of the lowest of such Market Quotations (for the avoidance of doubt, the lowest negative number shall equal the largest absolute value such that, for example, negative 3 shall be lower than negative 2); or
 
(B)
If, on the Latest Settlement Amount Determination Day, no Market Quotation for the relevant Terminated Transaction or group of Terminated Transactions is accepted by Party B so as to become legally binding and no Market Quotations have been made and remain capable of becoming legally binding upon acceptance, the Settlement Amount shall equal Party B’s Loss (whether positive or negative and without reference to any Unpaid amounts) for the relevant Terminated Transaction or group of Terminated Transactions.
 
(iii)
For the purpose of clause (4) of the definition of Market Quotation, Party B shall determine in its sole discretion, acting in a commercially reasonable manner, whether a Firm Offer is made in respect of a Replacement Transaction with commercial terms substantially the same as those of this Agreement (save for the exclusion of provisions relating to Transactions that are not Terminated Transactions); provided, however, that notwithstanding the provisions of this Part 5(r), nothing in this Agreement shall preclude Party A from obtaining Market Quotations.
 
19
