This SEVENTH AMENDED AND RESTATED RECEIVABLES PURCHASE AGREEMENT, originally dated as of December 31, 1996, amended and restated as of May 31, 2002, as of June 15, 2004, as of April 20, 2007, as of April 26, 2011, as of June 21, 2013, as of June 16, 2015 and as of December 20, 2016 (as further amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Agreement”) is entered into among AFC FUNDING CORPORATION, an Indiana corporation, as seller (the “Seller”), AUTOMOTIVE FINANCE CORPORATION, an Indiana corporation (“AFC”), as initial servicer (in such capacity, together with its successors and permitted assigns in such capacity, the “Servicer”), the entities from time to time parties hereto as Purchasers or Purchaser Agents and BANK OF MONTREAL, a Canadian chartered bank, as agent for the Purchasers (in such capacity, together with its successors and assigns in such capacity, the “Agent”).
PRELIMINARY STATEMENTS. Certain terms that are capitalized and used throughout this Agreement are defined in Exhibit I to this Agreement. References in the Exhibits hereto to “the Agreement” refer to this Agreement, as amended, modified or supplemented from time to time.
Certain of the parties hereto are party to that certain Sixth Amended and Restated Receivables Purchase Agreement, dated as of June 16, 2015 (the “Prior Agreement”), pursuant to which the Seller has sold, transferred and assigned an undivided variable percentage interest in a pool of receivables to the Purchasers thereunder.
The parties hereto wish to amend and restate the Prior Agreement in its entirety in order to make certain changes set forth herein.
In consideration of the mutual agreements, provisions and covenants contained herein, the parties hereto agree as follows:
ARTICLE I.

AMOUNTS AND TERMS OF THE PURCHASES
Section 1.1. Purchase Facility. (a) On the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth, each Purchaser hereby agrees to purchase and make reinvestments of undivided percentage ownership interests with regard to its Participation from the Seller from time to time prior to the Termination Date. Under no circumstances shall any Purchaser make any such purchase or reinvestment, if, after giving effect to such purchase or reinvestment, (A) the aggregate Investment of such Purchaser would exceed its Maximum Commitment; or (B) the aggregate outstanding Investment of all Purchasers would exceed the Maximum Amount.
(b)    The Seller may, upon at least 30 days’ notice to the Agent, the Purchaser Agents, the Servicer and the Backup Servicer, terminate the purchase facility provided in Section 1.1(a) in whole or, from time to time, irrevocably reduce in part the unused portion of the Maximum Amount (for purposes of this calculation, any deferred purchase amounts which Purchasers are still obligated to fund prior to any applicable Deferred Purchase Date(s) under Section 1.2(a)

I\11418185.1



shall be treated as funded); provided that each partial reduction shall be in the amount of at least $1,000,000, or an integral multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof and shall not reduce the Maximum Amount below $100,000,000. Any such reductions shall be applied to the Maximum Commitments of the Purchasers on a pro rata basis or as otherwise consented to by the Agent.
(c)    On the date hereof, the Seller shall request a purchase hereunder from one or more of Fairway Finance Company, LLC, Fifth Third Bank, Thunder Bay Funding, LLC, PNC Bank, National Association, Bank of Montreal and Chariot Funding, LLC (on a non-pro rata basis) and apply the proceeds thereof to solely realign the aggregate Investments of the Purchasers hereunder such that after giving effect to such payments the aggregate Investment is funded by all Purchaser Groups on a pro rata basis based on their Maximum Commitments as a percentage of the Maximum Amount.
Section 1.2.     Making Purchases. (a) Each purchase (but not reinvestment under Section 1.4(c)) of undivided ownership interests with regard to any Participation of any Purchaser hereunder shall be made upon the Seller’s irrevocable written notice in the form of Annex A (a “Purchase Notice”) delivered to the Agent and each Purchaser Agent in accordance with Section 6.2 (which notice must be received by such Purchaser Agents prior to 2:00 p.m., Chicago time) on the Business Day immediately preceding the date of such proposed purchase. Each such notice of any such proposed purchase shall specify the desired amount and date of such purchase. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Purchaser may, in its sole discretion by written notice to the Seller, Servicer and Agent by 5:00 p.m. on the date of receipt of a Purchase Notice, elect to fund any requested purchase (but not reinvestment under Section 1.4(c)) no later than the [*] day following the requested purchase date (the “Deferred Purchase Date”), rather than on the requested purchase date. Upon receipt of any such notice, the Agent shall forward a copy thereof promptly to all Purchaser Agents. In the event that a Purchaser so elects to defer funding a purchase, subject to the adjustment of the purchase amount payable as described in clause (i) below, the Purchaser shall be obligated to fund such purchase no later than such Deferred Purchase Date so long as all applicable conditions to such purchase pursuant to Exhibit II were satisfied on the related requested purchase date (regardless of whether such conditions to funding are not satisfied thereafter or on the Deferred Purchase Date). A Purchaser which has elected a Deferred Purchase Date and which has not yet funded such purchase in full or otherwise had such unfulfilled purchase reduced to zero pursuant to clause (i) below (a “Deferring Purchaser”) may (in its sole discretion) fund such purchase on any Business Day prior to such Deferred Purchase Date. Subject to the adjustment of the purchase amount payable as described in clause (i) below, the Seller shall be obligated to accept the proceeds of any such purchase on the date funded by the applicable Deferring Purchaser in accordance with this paragraph). No non- Deferring Purchaser shall be obligated to fund any amounts required to be funded by a Deferring Purchaser. In addition, if there is a Deferring Purchaser:
(i)    all repayments of Investment shall be made on a pro rata basis across all Purchasers (based on each such Purchaser’s Investment (including, for purposes of this calculation, any deferred purchase amounts which such Purchaser is still obligated to fund prior to the applicable Deferred Purchase Date(s)) as a percentage of the aggregate Investment for all Purchasers (including the aggregate of all outstanding deferred purchase amounts); provided, that amounts allocated to any Deferring Purchaser shall first be applied to reduce any applicable unfulfilled purchase amounts of that Deferring

I\11418185.1




Purchaser (starting with the most recently deferred purchase) without the payment of cash and then, after all such Deferring Purchaser’s unfulfilled purchase amounts have been reduced to zero, applied to reduce such Deferring Purchaser’s Investment through the payment of cash; and
(ii)    future purchase requests and reports shall be calculated on a pro forma basis including the unfulfilled purchase of any Deferring Purchasers (e.g., the calculation of the Participation shall include such unfulfilled purchases). For the avoidance of doubt, no unfulfilled purchase shall accrue Discount or be included in the calculation of fees hereunder until funded.
(b)    On the date of each purchase (but not reinvestment under Section 1.4(c)) of undivided ownership interests with regard to the Participation of any Purchaser, such Purchaser shall, subject to Sections 1.1(a), 1.2(a) and the satisfaction of the applicable conditions set forth in Exhibit II hereto, make available to its Purchaser Agent, in same day funds, an amount equal to its pro rata share (based on the Maximum Commitment of such Purchaser as a percentage of the Maximum Amount) of the amount of such purchase. Upon receipt of such funds, each such Purchaser Agent shall make such funds immediately available to the Seller pursuant to the wire instructions provided on the Purchase Notice.
(c)    The Seller hereby sells and assigns to the Agent, for the benefit of the Purchasers, an undivided percentage ownership interest equal to the Aggregate Participation in (i) each Pool Receivable then existing and thereafter arising, (ii) Seller’s right, title and interest in, to and under all Related Security with respect to such Pool Receivables, and (iii) all Collections with respect to, and other proceeds of, such Pool Receivables and Related Security.
(d)    To secure all of the Seller’s obligations (monetary or otherwise) under the Transaction Documents to which it is a party, whether now or hereafter existing or arising, due or to become due, direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, including to secure the obligation of the Servicer to apply Collections as provided in this Agreement, the Seller hereby grants to the Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, a security interest in all of the Seller’s right, title and interest in, to and under all of the following, whether now or hereafter owned, existing or arising: (A) all Pool Receivables, (B) all Related Security with respect to each such Pool Receivable, (C) all Collections with respect to such Pool Receivables and Related Security, (D) the Deposit Accounts, the Liquidation Account and the Cash Reserve Account and all certificates and instruments, if any, from time to time evidencing the Deposit Accounts, the Liquidation Account and the Cash Reserve Account, all amounts on deposit therein, all investments (including any investment property) made with such funds, all claims thereunder or in connection therewith, and all interest, dividends, moneys, instruments, securities and other property from time to time received, receivable or otherwise distributed in respect of or in exchange for any or all of the foregoing, (E) all rights of the Seller under the Purchase and Sale Agreement, and (F) all proceeds of, and all amounts received or receivable under any or all of, the foregoing. The Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, shall have, with respect to the property described in this Section 1.2(d), and in addition to all the other rights and remedies available under this Agreement, all the rights and remedies of a secured party under any applicable UCC.

On each Paydown Day (including on any day the Aggregate Participation exceeds 100%), the remainder of the Purchasers’ Share of any remaining Collections (after giving effect to allocations of more senior priority items in Section 1.4(c)), shall be transferred by the Servicer from the Deposit Accounts to the Liquidation Account and held therein by the Agent and allocated to repay the outstanding Investment of the Purchasers (with such reduction to be applied to the Investment of the Purchasers on a pro rata basis in accordance with the provisions of Section 1.2(a)(i); provided, that on the first day that is not a Paydown Day or a Termination Day, the Agent shall hold all funds allocated to repay Investment pursuant to this subsection for distribution in accordance with the priorities set forth in Section 1.4(c); and, provided, further, that upon the occurrence of the Termination Date, all Collections allocated to repay Investment pursuant to this subsection shall instead be held for distribution in accordance with Section 1.4(e).
(h)    Withdrawals from Cash Reserve Account. If on any Settlement Date (A) insufficient funds are on deposit in the Liquidation Account to make in full all required distributions of Discount and fees and (B) since the prior Settlement Date funds have been released to the Seller and not used by the Seller to acquire Receivables, the Seller shall deposit into the Liquidation Account on or before such Settlement Date the lesser of the shortfall described in clause (A) and the amount described in clause (B) above for the benefit of the applicable Purchasers. If on any Settlement Date insufficient funds are on deposit in the Liquidation Account (after giving effect to any deposits made by the Seller as described in the preceding sentence) to make in full all required distributions of Discount and fees for such Settlement Date, the Agent shall distribute funds from the Cash Reserve Account in payment of such Discount and fees as if such funds were funds on deposit in the Liquidation Account held for the benefit of the applicable Purchaser. On any Termination Day, to the extent directed by the Majority Purchasers, the Agent shall distribute funds from the Cash Reserve Account pursuant to Section 1.4(e) as if such funds were funds on deposit in the Liquidation Account held for the benefit of the applicable Purchasers and, following the payment in full of all outstanding Investment, any remaining amounts on deposit in the Cash Reserve Account shall be distributed as Collections pursuant to Section 1.4(e). If on any Business Day other than a Termination Day, after giving effect to all distributions on such day pursuant to Section 1.4, the amount on deposit in the Cash Reserve Account exceeds the Cash Reserve, such excess shall be released from the Cash Reserve Account and treated as Collections for purposes of Section 1.4 for the following Business Day.
Section 1.5.     Fees. (a) The Seller shall pay to the Purchaser Agents certain fees in the amounts and on the dates set forth in a letter dated December 20, 2016 between the Seller, AFC and the Purchaser Agents, as such letter agreement may be amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time in accordance with the terms thereof (the “Fee Letter”).

I\11418185.1




(b)    The Seller shall pay to the Backup Servicer the Backup Servicing Fees and any Transition Expenses in the amounts and on the dates set forth in the Backup Servicing Fee Letter, as the same may be amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time with the prior written consent of the Agent.
Section 1.6.     Payments and Computations, Etc. (a) All amounts to be paid or deposited by the Seller or the Servicer to, or for the benefit of, any Purchaser Agent, any Purchaser, the Agent or the Backup Servicer hereunder shall be paid or deposited no later than 12:00 noon (Chicago time) on the day when due in same day funds to the Liquidation Account. All amounts received after noon (Chicago time) will be deemed to have been received on the immediately succeeding Business Day.
(b)    The Seller, AFC or Servicer (as applicable) shall, to the extent permitted by law, pay interest on any amount not paid by the respective party to the applicable Person when due hereunder, at an interest rate equal to 2.0% per annum above the Base Rate, payable on demand.
(c)    All computations of interest under subsection (b) above and all computations of Discount, fees and other amounts hereunder shall be made on the basis of a year of 360 days for the actual number of days elapsed.

Section 1.7. Legal Final Maturity Date. All obligations of the Seller hereunder shall be due and payable in full on the Legal Final Maturity Date (unless due and payable earlier than such date in accordance with the provisions hereof).
Section 1.8. Increased Costs. (a) If any Purchaser Agent, any Purchaser, the Agent, any Liquidity Bank, any Related CP Issuer, any other Program Support Provider or any of their respective Affiliates (each an “Affected Person”) determines that the existence of or compliance with (i) any law or regulation or any change therein or in the administration, interpretation, application or implementation thereof by any Governmental Authority or Official Body, in each case adopted, issued, taking effect or occurring after the date hereof or (ii) any request, rule, guideline or directive from any central bank or other Official Body (whether or not having the force of law) issued, occurring or first applied after the date of this Agreement (each, a “Regulatory Change”) (A) affects or would affect the amount of capital required or expected to be maintained by such Affected Person and such Affected Person determines that the amount of such capital is increased by or based upon the existence of any commitment to make purchases of or otherwise to maintain the investment in Pool Receivables related to this Agreement or any related liquidity facility or credit enhancement facility and other commitments of the same type, or (B) imposes, modifies or deems applicable any reserve, assessment, fee, tax, insurance charge, special deposit or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or liabilities of any Affected Person, or credit extended by an Affected Person pursuant to this Agreement or any Liquidity Agreement or Program Support Agreement, the result of which is to increase the cost to an Affected Person of performing its obligations under this Agreement or any Liquidity Agreement or Program Support Agreement, or to reduce the rate of return on an Affected Person’s capital or assets as a consequence of its obligations under this Agreement or

I\11418185.1




any Liquidity Agreement or Program Support Agreement, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by an Affected Person under this Agreement or any Liquidity Agreement or Program Support Agreement, or to require any payment calculated by reference to the amount of interests or loans held or interest received by it, under this Agreement or any Liquidity Agreement or Program Support Agreement, then, upon written demand by such Affected Person (with a copy to the Agent and the applicable Purchaser Agent (if any)), the Seller shall immediately pay to the Agent, for the account of such Affected Person, from time to time as specified by such Affected Person, additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Affected Person in the light of such circumstances, to the extent that such Affected Person reasonably determines such increase in capital, increase in costs or reduction in sum received or receivable to be allocable to the existence of any of such commitments or maintenance of its investment in the Pool Receivables and such Affected Person requires such compensation from substantially all similarly situated sellers, borrowers or other recipients of credit; provided that within 30 days of an Affected Person’s knowledge of any such circumstance and intent to seek indemnification therefor such Affected Person shall notify the Seller in writing of the same and whether such Affected Person will request that the Seller indemnify it for such circumstance (and the Seller shall not be obligated to indemnify any Affected Person for any period in excess of 30 days prior to receipt of such notice). A certificate as to such amounts shall be submitted to the Seller, the Agent and the applicable Purchaser Agent (if any) by such Affected Person and shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, (i) the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and all rules and regulations promulgated thereunder or issued in connection therewith and (ii) all requests, rules, guidelines and directives promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor or similar authority) or the United States or foreign regulatory authorities, shall in each case be deemed to have been introduced as of the date after the date hereof, thereby constituting a Regulatory Change hereunder, regardless of the date enacted, adopted or issued.
(b)    If, due to Regulatory Change, there shall be any increase in the cost to any Affected Person of agreeing to purchase or purchasing, or maintaining the ownership of the related Participation(s) in respect of which Discount is computed by reference to the Eurodollar Rate, then, upon written demand by such Affected Person, the Seller shall immediately pay to the Agent, for the account of such Affected Person, from time to time as specified, additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Affected Person for such increased costs; provided that within 30 days of an Affected Person’s knowledge of any such circumstance and intent to seek indemnification therefor such Affected Person shall notify the Seller in writing of the same and whether such Affected Person will request that the Seller indemnify it for such circumstance (and the Seller shall not be obligated to indemnify any Affected Person for any period in excess of 30 days prior to receipt of such notice). A certificate as to such amounts shall be submitted to the Seller, the Agent and the applicable Purchaser Agent (if any), by such Affected Person and shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.

Section 1.9.     Dilutions; Application of Payments.
(a)    If on any day
(i)    the Outstanding Balance of any Pool Receivable is reduced or adjusted as a result of any discount, rebate or other adjustment made by the Originator, Seller or Servicer, or any setoff or dispute between the Seller, Originator or the Servicer and an Obligor, the Seller shall be deemed to have received on such day a Collection of such Pool Receivable in the amount of such reduction or adjustment; or
(ii)    any of the representations or warranties in paragraphs A.(g) or A.(o) of Exhibit III is not true with respect to any Pool Receivable, the Seller shall be deemed to have received on such day a Collection of such Pool Receivable in full;
then any such deemed Collections shall be deposited by the Seller into the Liquidation Account on the first Business Day of the calendar week following deemed receipt thereof.
(b)    Except as otherwise required by applicable law or the relevant Contract, all Collections received from an Obligor of any Receivable shall be applied in accordance with the Contract with such Obligor and the Credit and Collection Policy.
(c)    If and to the extent any Secured Party shall be required for any reason to pay over to an Obligor (or any trustee, receiver, custodian or similar official in any Insolvency Proceeding) any amount received by it hereunder, such amount shall be deemed not to have been so received but rather to have been retained by the Seller and, accordingly, such Secured Party shall have a claim against the Seller for such amount, payable when and to the extent that any distribution from or on behalf of such Obligor is made in respect thereof.
Section 1.10.     Requirements of Law. In the event that any Affected Person determines that the existence of or compliance with (i) any law or regulation or any change therein or in the interpretation or application thereof, in each case adopted, issued or occurring after the date hereof or (ii) any request, guideline or directive from any central bank or other Governmental Authority (whether or not having the force of law) issued or occurring after the date of this Agreement:
(i)    does or shall subject such Affected Person to any tax of any kind whatsoever with respect to this Agreement, any increase in the applicable Participation(s) or in the amount of Investment relating thereto, or does or shall change the basis of taxation of payments to such Affected Person on account of Collections, Discount or any other amounts payable hereunder (excluding taxes imposed on the overall net income of such Affected Person, and franchise taxes imposed on such Affected Person, by the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Affected Person is organized or doing business or a political subdivision thereof);
(ii)    does or shall impose, modify or hold applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan or similar requirement against assets held by, or deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, purchases, advances or loans by, or other credit extended by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of such Affected Person

I\11418185.1




which are not otherwise included in the determination of the Eurodollar Rate or the Base Rate hereunder; or
(iii)    does or shall impose on such Affected Person any other condition;
and the result of any of the foregoing is (x) to increase the cost to such Affected Person of acting as a Purchaser Agent or Agent or of agreeing to purchase or purchasing or maintaining the ownership of undivided ownership interests with regard to the applicable Participation or any Investment (or interests therein) in respect of which Discount is computed by reference to the Eurodollar Rate or the Base Rate or (y) to reduce any amount receivable hereunder (whether directly or indirectly) funded or maintained by reference to the Eurodollar Rate or the Base Rate, then, in any such case, upon written demand by such Affected Person the Seller shall pay the Agent, for the account of such Affected Person, any additional amounts necessary to compensate such Affected Person for such additional cost or reduced amount receivable. All such amounts shall be payable as incurred. A certificate from such Affected Person to the Seller certifying, in reasonably specific detail, the basis for, calculation of, and amount of such additional costs or reduced amount receivable shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error; provided, however, that no Affected Person shall be required to disclose any confidential or tax planning information in any such certificate.
Section 1.11.     Inability to Determine Eurodollar Rate. In the event that any Purchaser Agent shall have determined prior to the first day of any Yield Period for the Participation of its Purchaser (which determination shall be conclusive and binding upon the parties hereto) by reason of circumstances affecting the interbank Eurodollar market, either (a) Dollar deposits in the relevant amounts and for the relevant Yield Period are not available, (b) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Eurodollar Rate for such Yield Period or (c) the Eurodollar Rate determined pursuant hereto does not accurately reflect the cost (as conclusively determined by such Purchaser Agent) to any Purchaser for which such Purchaser Agent acts as agent of maintaining each such Investment of such Purchaser during such Yield Period, such Purchaser Agent shall promptly give telephonic notice of such determination, confirmed in writing, to the Seller prior to the first day of such Yield Period. Upon delivery of such notice (a) no Investment of such Purchaser shall be funded thereafter at the Bank Rate determined by reference to the Eurodollar Rate, unless and until the applicable Purchaser Agent shall have given notice to the Seller that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist, and (b) with respect to any outstanding Investment then funded at the Bank Rate determined by reference to the Eurodollar Rate, such Bank Rate shall automatically be converted to the Bank Rate determined by reference to the Base Rate for the next Yield Period.
Section 1.12. Additional and Replacement Purchasers, Increase in Maximum Amount. (a) Subject to Section 6.1, the Seller shall have the right, at any time and from time to time, with the prior written consent of the Agent to add any entity as a Purchaser hereunder (which addition may increase the Maximum Amount if a Purchaser is added) or increase the Maximum Commitment of any existing Purchaser. No increase in the Maximum Commitment of a Purchaser hereunder shall be effective unless, if the increasing Purchaser is a Note Issuer that requires confirmation by the Rating Agencies, such Note Issuer shall have received written confirmation by its related Rating Agencies that such action shall not cause the rating on the then outstanding Notes of such Note Issuer to be downgraded or withdrawn. Each such addition of a

 
11
 
I\11418185.1




new Purchaser hereunder shall be effected by delivery to the Seller, the Servicer, the Agent and each Purchaser Agent, of a Joinder Agreement executed by the Seller, the Servicer, the Agent, such new Purchaser and its Purchaser Agent (if different from the Purchaser) in substantially the form of Annex C hereto. Upon receipt of a Joinder Agreement, if such Joinder Agreement has been fully executed and completed and is substantially in the form of Annex C, the Servicer shall, not less than five (5) Business Days prior to the effectiveness of such Joinder Agreement give prompt written notice to all Purchaser Agents, the Agent and Purchasers as to (i) the name, identity and address for receiving notices of the new Purchaser(s) and Purchaser Agent(s) becoming party hereto, (ii) the Maximum Commitment of such new Purchaser, (iii) the change in the Maximum Amount and (iv) the effective date of such Joinder Agreement. Immediately upon the effectiveness of such Joinder Agreement, such additional Purchaser shall purchase, by wire transfer of immediately available funds its Participation. Effective with the payment of such amounts, such new Purchaser and its Purchaser Agent designated in the applicable Joinder Agreement shall each become parties hereto.
(b)    By executing and delivering a Joinder Agreement, each new Purchaser and Purchaser Agent confirms to and agrees with the Agent and each other Purchaser and Purchaser Agent party hereto as follows: (A) such new Purchaser has received a copy of this Agreement, and the Purchase and Sale Agreement, together with copies of such financial statements and other documents and information as it has deemed appropriate to make its own credit analysis and decision to enter into such Joinder Agreement; (B) such new Purchaser has made and will continue to make, independently and without reliance upon the Agent, any Purchaser Agent or any other Purchaser and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, its own credit decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement; (C) such new Purchaser appoints and authorizes the Agent to take such action as agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers under this Agreement as are delegated to the Agent by the terms hereof, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto; and (D) such new Purchaser and its Purchaser Agent agrees that it will perform in accordance with their terms all of the obligations which by the terms of this Agreement are required to be performed by it as a Purchaser or Purchaser Agent.
(c)    In addition to the foregoing, in the event that any Purchaser or Purchaser Agent (i) does not consent to an amendment of clause (ii) of the definition of Termination Date to which the Seller and the Servicer have otherwise consented; or (ii) does not consent to any amendment or modification of this Agreement agreed to by the Seller, the Servicer and the Majority Purchasers but which requires the consent of such Purchaser, then, in any such event, the Seller shall have the right, with the prior written consent of the Agent, to require such Purchaser to assign its interests in its Participation and the Pool Receivables and all of its rights and obligations under this Agreement to a replacement Purchaser acceptable to the Agent and the Seller. Any such assignment shall be without recourse, representation or warranty of any kind on the part of the assigning Purchaser, except that such assignment is free and clear of any Adverse Claims created by such Purchaser, and shall be consummated pursuant to documentation reasonably satisfactory to the assignor and assignee on not less than ten days’ prior written notice, at a purchase price equal to the sum of (w) the aggregate outstanding Investment of the Purchaser being so replaced; (x) all accrued and unpaid Discount on such Investment; (y) all accrued and unpaid Program Fees owed to or on behalf of such Purchaser; and (z) all other accrued and unpaid expenses, indemnities and other amounts owing under this

I\11418185.1




Agreement to such Purchaser, including any Termination Fees caused by the above-described assignment. Concurrently with any such assignment, the Seller, the Servicer, such replacement Purchaser and its Purchaser Agent (if different from the Purchaser) shall execute a Joinder Agreement to evidence the terms and conditions under which such replacement Purchaser has agreed to become a Purchaser hereunder.

ARTICLE IV.    

ADMINISTRATION AND COLLECTIONS
Section 4.1.     Appointment of Servicer. (a) The servicing, administering and collection of the Pool Receivables shall be conducted by the Person so designated from time to time as Servicer in accordance with this Section 4.1. Until the Majority Purchasers give notice to the Seller, the Agent and the Servicer (in accordance with the following sentence) of the designation of a new Servicer, AFC is hereby designated as, and hereby agrees to perform the duties and obligations of, the Servicer pursuant to the terms hereof. Upon the occurrence of a Termination Event, the Majority Purchasers may designate the Backup Servicer or any other Person (including the Agent) to succeed the Servicer, on the condition that any such Person so designated (other than the Backup Servicer, except to the extent specified in the Backup Servicing Agreement) shall agree in writing to perform the duties and obligations of the Servicer pursuant to the terms hereof unless otherwise consented to by the Majority Purchasers.
(b)    Upon the designation of a successor Servicer as set forth in Section 4.1(a) hereof, the Servicer agrees that it will terminate its activities as Servicer hereunder in a manner which the Agent determines will facilitate the transition of the performance of such activities to the new Servicer, and the Servicer shall cooperate with and assist such new Servicer. Such cooperation shall include (without limitation) access to and transfer of all records and use by the new Servicer of all licenses, hardware or software necessary or desirable to collect the Pool Receivables and the Related Security. Without limiting the foregoing, the Servicer agrees that, at any time following the occurrence of a Termination Event, the Servicer shall, at the request of the Agent (i) promptly identify all branch offices, loan processing offices or other locations at which the Pool Receivable Documents are then being held, (ii) allow the Agent or its designee full access to all such locations and all Pool Receivable Documents, (iii) promptly arrange, at the Servicer’s expense, the transfer of possession of all such Pool Receivable Documents to the Backup Servicer, any successor Servicer or other third-party custodian specified by the Agent and (iv) instruct the Servicer’s agents and any person with whom the Servicer or its agents have contracted to hold any such Pool Receivable Documents to provide full access to, and/or transfer possession of, any Pool Receivable Documents held by such agent or contractor. The Servicer agrees to take no action which would impede or impair the ability of the Agent or its designees to gain access to the Pool Receivable Documents or to obtain possession thereof in accordance with the provisions hereof. The parties hereto agree that the covenants contained in the foregoing sentence are reasonable and necessary for the protection of the legitimate interests of the Secured Parties in the Pool Receivables. Accordingly, in addition to other remedies provided at law or equity, upon any breach by the Servicer of the covenants contained in the second preceding sentence, the Agent shall be entitled to seek specific performance and injunctive relief by and against the Servicer prohibiting any further breach of such covenants, without the necessity of proving irreparable injury or posting bond.
(c)    The Servicer acknowledges that, in making its decision to execute and deliver this Agreement, the Purchaser Agents, the Agent and the Purchasers have relied on the Servicer’s

 
18
 
I\11418185.1




agreement to act as Servicer hereunder. Accordingly, the Servicer agrees that it will not voluntarily resign as Servicer.
(d)    The Servicer may delegate its duties and obligations hereunder to any subservicer (each, a “Sub-Servicer”); provided that, in each such delegation, (i) such Sub-Servicer shall agree in writing to perform the duties and obligations of the Servicer pursuant to the terms hereof, (ii) the Servicer shall remain primarily liable to the Secured Parties for the performance of the duties and obligations so delegated, (iii) the Secured Parties shall have the right to look solely to the Servicer for such performance and (iv) the terms of any agreement with any Sub-Servicer shall provide that the Majority Purchasers may terminate such agreement upon the termination of the Servicer hereunder in accordance with Section 4.1(a) above by giving notice of its desire to terminate such agreement to the Servicer (and the Servicer shall provide appropriate notice to such Sub-Servicer); provided further, no such delegation shall be effective without the prior written consent of the Majority Purchasers.
Section 4.2.     Duties of Servicer; Relationship to Backup Servicing Agreement. (a) The Servicer shall take or cause to be taken all such action as may be necessary or advisable to collect each Pool Receivable from time to time, all in accordance with this Agreement, accepted industry standards and all applicable laws, rules and regulations, with reasonable care and diligence, and in accordance with the Credit and Collection Policy. Servicer may sue to collect upon Pool Receivables or enforce or recover Related Security, in its own name, if possible. If Servicer elects to commence a legal proceeding to collect a Pool Receivable or enforce or recover Related Security, the act of commencement shall be deemed to be an automatic assignment of the Pool Receivable or Seller’s and Purchasers’ rights in, to and under the Related Security to Servicer, for purposes of collection only. The Servicer shall set aside for the accounts of the Seller, the Backup Servicer and the Purchasers the amount of the Collections to which each is entitled in accordance with Section 1.4. The Seller shall deliver to the Servicer and the Servicer shall hold for the benefit of the Secured Parties in accordance with their respective interests, all records and documents (including without limitation computer tapes or disks) with respect to each Pool Receivable and all Pool Receivable Documents. The Servicer (if the Servicer is AFC or one of its Affiliates) shall stamp each page of each Contract related to a Pool Receivable with the following legend “This Receivable has been sold to AFC Funding Corporation and an interest therein has been granted to Bank of Montreal, as Agent”; provided, that any Contract executed prior to June 16, 2015 may be stamped with the following legend “This Receivable has been sold to AFC Funding Corporation and an interest therein has been granted to BMO Capital Markets Corp., as Agent” (and, for the avoidance of doubt, shall not be required to be restamped). During such period as a Backup Servicer is required to be maintained hereunder, the Servicer agrees to provide the Backup Servicer with an electronic (scanned) copy of each Contract related to a Pool Receivable and with monthly updates thereafter upon receipt of which the Backup Servicer shall perform a reconciliation of the Receivables data and recalculate the Servicer Report. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Agent may direct the Servicer to commence or settle any legal action to enforce collection of any Pool Receivable or to foreclose upon or repossess any Related Security; provided, however, that no such direction may be given unless a Termination Event has occurred. AFC is hereby appointed the custodian of the Pool Receivable Documents for the benefit of the Agent on behalf of the Secured Parties; provided, however, that such appointment may be terminated pursuant to the terms hereof. AFC, or an affiliate on its behalf, will maintain fidelity and forgery insurance

 
19
 
I\11418185.1




and adequate insurance to replace all Pool Receivable Documents due to casualty loss or theft of such documents. In performing its duties as servicer and custodian, AFC shall act with reasonable care, using that degree of skill and attention that AFC exercises with respect to the files relating to all comparable contracts that AFC owns or services for itself or others. AFC shall (i) maintain the Pool Receivable Documents in such a manner as shall enable the Agent and the Purchaser Agents to verify the accuracy of AFC’s recordkeeping; and (ii) promptly report to the Agent and the Purchaser Agents any failure on its part or the part of its agents to hold the Pool Receivable Documents and promptly take appropriate action to remedy any such failure. Upon termination of AFC’s appointment as custodian hereunder and the delivery of the Pool Receivable Documents to the successor custodian, the successor custodian shall review such documents to determine whether it is missing any documents, and AFC shall cooperate with the successor custodian and use its best efforts to assist the successor custodian to obtain the missing documents. AFC shall maintain continuous custody of the Pool Receivable Documents in secure facilities in accordance with customary standards for such custody.
(b)    In the event the Backup Servicer becomes the successor Servicer hereunder, any applicable terms and conditions of the Backup Servicing Agreement relating to its performance as successor Servicer shall be deemed to be incorporated herein, and the obligations and liabilities of the successor Servicer (as such obligations and liabilities apply to the Backup Servicer acting in such capacity) shall be deemed to be modified in accordance with the provisions thereof. To the extent that any conflict exists between the terms of this Agreement and the Backup Servicing Agreement, the terms of the Backup Servicing Agreement shall control.
(c)    The Servicer’s obligations hereunder shall terminate on the Final Payout Date. After such termination, the Servicer shall promptly deliver to the Seller all books, records and related materials that the Seller previously provided to the Servicer in connection with this Agreement.
(d)    During such period as a Backup Servicer is required to be maintained hereunder, the Servicer shall provide to the Backup Servicer and the Agent and each Purchaser Agent (if requested) all such information (by the times and in the form) specified to be delivered by the Servicer under the Backup Servicing Agreement.
(e)    Following the occurrence and during the continuation of a Termination Event or a Level One Trigger, the Servicer shall provide to the  Agent and each Purchaser Agent (if requested) on a daily basis a Portfolio Certificate (including information with respect to all Collections received and all Receivables acquired by the Seller).

Section 4.3.     Deposit Accounts; Establishment and Use of Certain Accounts.
(i)    Deposit Accounts. On or prior to the date hereof, the Servicer agrees to transfer ownership and control of each Deposit Account to the Seller. Seller has granted a valid security interest in each Deposit Account to the Agent (for the benefit of the Secured Parties) pursuant to Section 1.2(d) and shall take all actions reasonably requested by the Agent to cause the security interest to be perfected under the applicable UCC.

 
20
 
I\11418185.1




(ii)    Cash Reserve Account. The Agent has established and will maintain in existence the Cash Reserve Account. The Cash Reserve Account shall be used to hold the Cash Reserve and for such other purposes described in the Transaction Documents.
(iii)    Liquidation Account. The Agent has established and will maintain in existence the Liquidation Account. The Liquidation Account shall be used to receive Collections from the Deposit Accounts pursuant to Section 1.4(b) and to hold amounts set aside for the Purchasers, the Backup Servicer and (if the Servicer is not AFC or an Affiliate of AFC) the Servicer out of the Collections of Pool Receivables prior to the applicable Settlement Dates and for such other purposes described in the Transaction Documents. No funds other than those transferred in accordance with Section 1.4 shall be intentionally transferred into the Liquidation Account.
(iv)    Permitted Investments. Any amounts in the Liquidation Account or the Cash Reserve Account, as the case may be, may be invested by the Liquidation Account Bank or the Cash Reserve Account Bank, respectively, prior to the occurrence of a Termination Event at the Servicer’s direction and following the occurrence of a Termination Event at the Agent’s direction, in Permitted Investments, so long as the Agent’s interest (for the benefit of the Secured Parties) in such Permitted Investments is perfected in a manner satisfactory to the Agent and such Permitted Investments are subject to no Adverse Claims other than those of the Agent provided hereunder.
(v)    Control of Accounts. The Agent may (with written notice to the Purchaser Agents) and shall (at the direction of the Majority Purchasers) following any Termination Event (or an Unmatured Termination Event of the type described in paragraph (g) of Exhibit V) at any time give notice to any Deposit Bank that the Agent is exercising its rights under the applicable Deposit Account Agreement to do any or all of the following: (i) to have the exclusive ownership and control of such Deposit Account transferred to the Agent (or such other party designated by the Majority Purchasers) and to exercise exclusive dominion and control over the funds deposited therein and (ii) to take any or all other actions permitted under the applicable Deposit Account Agreement. The Seller hereby agrees that if the Agent (or such other party designated by the Majority Purchasers) at any time takes any action set forth in the preceding sentence, the Agent (or such other party designated by the Majority Purchasers) shall have exclusive control of the proceeds (including Collections) of all Pool Receivables and the Seller hereby further agrees to take any other action that the Majority Purchasers may reasonably request to transfer such control. Any proceeds of Pool Receivables received by the Seller, the Servicer or AFC (as Servicer or otherwise), thereafter shall be sent immediately to an account designated by the Majority Purchasers and held by the Agent (or such other party designated by the Majority Purchasers) for the benefit of the Secured Parties.

(ii)    the Majority Purchasers may with the consent of the Agent instruct the Seller or the Servicer to give notice of the Agent’s interest (for the benefit of the Secured Parties) in Pool Receivables to each Obligor, which notice shall direct that payments be made directly to the Backup Servicer or such other party designated by the Majority Purchasers (for the benefit of the Secured Parties), and upon such instruction from the Majority Purchasers, the Seller or the Servicer, as applicable, shall give such notice at the expense of the Seller; provided, that if the Seller or the Servicer fails to so notify each Obligor, the Agent or its designee may so notify the Obligors; and
(iii)    the Majority Purchasers may with the consent of the Agent request the Seller or the Servicer to, and upon such request the Seller or the Servicer, as applicable, shall, (A) assemble all of the records necessary or desirable to collect the Pool Receivables and the Related Security and all Pool Receivable Documents, and transfer or license to any new Servicer the use of all software necessary or desirable to collect the Pool Receivables and the Related Security, and make the same available to the Backup Servicer or other third-party custodian specified by, and at a place selected by, the Agent and (B) segregate all cash, checks and other instruments received by it from time to time constituting Collections with respect to the Pool Receivables in a manner acceptable to the Agent and, promptly upon receipt, remit all such cash, checks and instruments, duly endorsed or with duly executed instruments of transfer, to the Agent or the Backup Servicer (or such other party designated by the Majority Purchasers) (for the benefit of the Secured Parties).
(b)    The Seller hereby authorizes the Agent (for the benefit of the Secured Parties), and irrevocably appoints the Agent (acting on behalf of the Secured Parties) as its attorney-in-fact with full power of substitution and with full authority in the place and stead of the Seller, which appointment is coupled with an interest, to take any and all steps in the name of the Seller and on behalf of the Seller necessary or desirable, in the determination of the Agent, to collect any and all amounts or portions thereof due under any and all Pool Receivables or Related Security, including, without limitation, endorsing the name of the Seller on checks and other instruments representing Collections and enforcing such Pool Receivables, Related Security and the related Contracts. The Agent shall only exercise the powers conferred by this subsection (b) after the occurrence of a Termination Event. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this subsection (b), none of the powers conferred upon such attorney-in-fact pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence shall subject such attorney-in-fact to any liability if any action taken by it shall prove to be inadequate or invalid, nor shall they confer any obligations upon such attorney-in-fact in any manner whatsoever.

Section 4.5.     Responsibilities of the Seller. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the Seller shall (i) perform all of its obligations, if any, under the Contracts related to the Pool Receivables to the same extent as if interests in such Pool Receivables had not been transferred hereunder, and the exercise by any Secured Party of its rights hereunder shall not relieve the Seller from such obligations and (ii) pay when due any taxes, including, without limitation, any sales taxes payable in connection with the Pool Receivables and their creation and satisfaction. The Agent, the Purchaser Agents, the Purchasers, the Backup Servicer and any successor Servicer shall not have any obligation or liability with respect to any Pool Receivable, any Related Security or any related Contract, nor shall any of them be obligated to perform any of the obligations of the Seller or AFC under any of the foregoing.
Section 4.6.     Servicing Fee. The Servicer shall be paid a monthly fee in arrears, through distributions contemplated by Section 1.4, equal to (a) at any time AFC or an Affiliate of AFC is the Servicer, [*], (b) at any time the Backup Servicer has become the Servicer hereunder, [*], and (c) at any time a Person other than AFC, an Affiliate of AFC or the Backup Servicer is the Servicer, the Unaffiliated Servicing Fees or such other amount as the Agent and such successor Servicer shall agree. The Servicing Fee shall not be payable to the extent funds are not available to pay the Servicing Fee pursuant to Section 1.4.
Section 4.7.     Specified Ineligible Receivables. On or prior to the initial date of purchase of a Receivable under the Purchase and Sale Agreement, the Servicer (so long as the Originator is the Servicer) may designate such Receivable as a “Specified Ineligible Receivable” (which designation may take the form of a specification that a certain class or category of Receivables to be transferred from the Originator to the Seller after such designation will be treated as “Specified Ineligible Receivables”). In addition, the Servicer (so long as the Originator is the Servicer) may, on behalf of the Seller, (i) designate an existing Receivable then owned by the Seller as a “Specified Ineligible Receivable” or (ii) designate an existing Specified Ineligible Receivable then owned by the Seller as a Receivable (i.e., no longer a “Specified Ineligible Receivable”), in each of cases (i) and (ii) with the prior written consent of the Majority Purchasers. For the avoidance of doubt, any Receivable which was treated as an Eligible Receivable hereunder at any time may not be treated as a “Specified Ineligible Receivable” without the prior written consent of the Majority Purchasers. The Servicer (so long as the Originator is the Servicer) shall identify the aggregate Outstanding Balance of all such “Specified Ineligible Receivables” on the Servicer Report. To the extent the Servicer has from time to time identified a Receivable as a “Specified Ineligible Receivable” in accordance with this Section, for so long as such Receivable is a Specified Ineligible Receivable, (i) such Receivable shall not be included as an Eligible Receivable by the Seller or the Servicer hereunder, (ii) such Receivable shall not be included in any calculations of the Delinquency Ratio or the Default Ratio or other Pool Receivables information (other than a statement of the aggregate Outstanding Balance of such Specified Ineligible Receivables) hereunder and (iii) such Receivable shall not be considered a Receivable for purposes of clause (o) of Exhibit V hereof.

The Agent shall not be responsible to any Purchaser or Purchaser Agent for (i) any recitals, representations, warranties or other statements made by the Seller, Servicer, the Originator or any of their Affiliates, (ii) the value, validity, effectiveness, genuineness, enforceability or sufficiency of any Transaction Document, (iii) any failure of the Seller, the Servicer, the Originator or any of their Affiliates to perform any obligation it may have under any Transaction Document to which it is a party or (iv) the satisfaction of any condition specified in Exhibit II. The Agent shall not have any obligation to any Purchaser or any Purchaser Agent to ascertain or inquire about the observance or performance of any agreement contained in any Transaction Document or to inspect the properties, books or records of the Seller, Servicer, the Originator or any of their Affiliates.

Therefore, from and after the date hereof, the Seller and AFC shall take all reasonable steps to continue the Seller’s identity as a separate legal entity and to make it apparent to third Persons that the Seller is an entity with assets and liabilities distinct from those of AFC, the Originator and any other Person, and is not a division of AFC or any other Person. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing and in addition to and consistent with the covenant set forth in paragraph (a) of this Exhibit IV, the Seller and AFC shall take such actions as shall be required in order that:
(i) The Seller will be a limited purpose corporation whose primary activities are restricted in its articles of incorporation to purchasing Receivables from the Originator, entering into agreements for the servicing of such Receivables, selling undivided interests in such Receivables and conducting such other activities as it deems necessary or appropriate to carry out its primary activities;

In the event an Independent Director resigns or otherwise ceases to be a director of the Seller, there shall be selected a replacement Independent Director who shall not be an individual within the proscriptions of the first sentence of this clause (ii) or any individual who has any other type of professional relationship with the Originator or any of its Affiliates or any management personnel of any such Person or Affiliate and who shall be (x) a tenured professor at a business or law school, (y) a retired judge or (z) an established independent member of the business community, having a sound reputation and experience relative to the duties to be performed by such individual as an Independent Director;

(iv) Any employee, consultant or agent of the Seller will be compensated from the Seller’s own bank accounts for services provided to the Seller except as provided herein in respect of the Servicing Fee. The Seller will engage no agents other than a Servicer for the Receivables, which Servicer will be fully compensated for its services to the Seller by payment of the Servicing Fee;
(v) The Seller will contract with the Servicer to perform for the Seller all operations required on a daily basis to service its Receivables.

To the extent, if any, that the Seller and the Originator or any Affiliate thereof share items of expenses not reflected in the Servicing Fee, such as legal, auditing and other professional services, such expenses will be allocated to the extent practical on the basis of actual use or the value of services rendered, and otherwise on a basis reasonably related to the actual use or the value of services rendered, it being understood that Originator shall pay all expenses relating to the preparation, negotiation, execution and delivery of the Transaction Documents, including, without limitation, legal and other fees;
(vi) The Seller’s operating expenses will not be paid by Originator or any Affiliate thereof unless the Seller shall have agreed in writing with such Person to reimburse such Person for any such payments;
(vii) The Seller will have its own separate mailing address and stationery;
(viii) The Seller’s books and records will be maintained separately from those of the Originator or any Affiliate thereof;
(ix) Any financial statements of the Originator or KAR which are consolidated to include the Seller will contain detailed notes clearly stating that the Seller is a separate corporate entity and has sold ownership interests in the Seller’s accounts receivable;

 
EX-IV-7
 
I\11418185.1




(x) The Seller’s assets will be maintained in a manner that facilitates their identification and segregation from those of the Originator and any Affiliate thereof;
(xi) The Seller will strictly observe corporate formalities in its dealings with the Originator and any Affiliate thereof, and funds or other assets of the Seller will not be commingled with those of the Originator or any Affiliate thereof.

(xii) The Seller shall pay to the Originator the marginal increase (or, in the absence of such increase, the market amount of its portion) of the premium payable with respect to any insurance policy that covers the Seller and any Affiliate thereof, but the Seller shall not, directly or indirectly, be named or enter into an agreement to be named, as a direct or contingent beneficiary or loss payee, under any such insurance policy, with respect to any amounts payable due to occurrences or events related to the Originator or any Affiliate thereof (other than the Seller); and
(xiii) The Seller will maintain arm’s length relationships with the Originator and any Affiliate thereof. The Originator or any Affiliate thereof that renders or otherwise furnishes services to the Seller will be compensated by the Seller at market rates for such services. Neither the Seller nor the Originator or any Affiliate thereof will be or will hold itself out to be responsible for the debts of the other or the decisions or actions respecting the daily business and affairs of the other.
(n)    Mergers, Acquisitions, Sales, etc.
(i) The Seller shall not:
(A) be a party to any merger or consolidation, or directly or indirectly purchase or otherwise acquire, whether in one or a series of transactions, all or substantially all of the assets or any stock of any class of, or any partnership or joint venture interest in, any other Person, or sell, transfer, assign, convey or lease any of its property and assets (including, without limitation, any Pool Receivable or any interest therein) other than pursuant to this Agreement;

EXHIBIT VII

PERFECTION REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND COVENANTS
In addition to the representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Agreement, to induce Purchasers and Agent to enter into the Agreement and, in the case of Purchasers, to purchase the Participation hereunder, the Seller hereby represents, warrants and covenants to Agent and the Purchasers as to itself as follows on the Closing Date and on the date of each purchase and reinvestment in the Participation thereafter:
General
1.    The Agreement creates a valid and continuing security interest (as defined in the Indiana UCC) in the Pool Receivables in favor of the Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, which security interest is prior to all other Adverse Claims, and is enforceable as such as against creditors of and purchasers from the Seller.
2.    The Pool Receivables constitute “accounts,” “payment intangibles,” “general intangibles,” “instruments” or “tangible chattel paper,” within the meaning of the Indiana UCC.
3.    The Cash Reserve Account, the Deposit Accounts and the Liquidation Account and all subaccounts of such accounts, constitute either a “deposit account” or a “securities account” within the meaning of the Indiana UCC.
4.    The Originator or the Originating Lender, as applicable, thereof has perfected its security interest against the Obligors in the property securing the Pool Receivables (to the extent that a security interest in such property can be perfected by the filing of a financing statement).
Creation
5.    The Seller owns and has good and marketable title to the Pool Receivables free and clear of any Adverse Claim, claim or encumbrance of any Person, excepting only Permitted Liens.
6.    Originator has received all consents and approvals to the sale of the Pool Receivables to the Seller required by the terms of the Receivables that constitute instruments or payment intangibles.
Perfection
7.    Each of the Originator and the Seller has caused or will have caused, within ten days after the effective date of the Agreement, the filing of all appropriate financing statements in the proper filing office in the appropriate jurisdictions under applicable law in order to perfect the sale of the Receivables from Originator to the Seller pursuant to the Purchase and Sale Agreement and the security interest therein granted by the Seller to the Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, hereunder; and Originator or Originating Lender has in its

 
EX-VII-1
 
I\11418185.1




possession the original copies of such instruments or tangible chattel paper that constitute or evidence the Pool Receivables, and all financing statements referred to in this paragraph contain a statement to the effect that: A purchase of or security interest in any collateral described in this financing statement will violate the rights of the Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties.
8.    With respect to Pool Receivables that constitute an instrument or tangible chattel paper:
Such instruments or tangible chattel paper is in the possession of the Servicer and the Agent has received a written acknowledgment from the Servicer that the Servicer is holding such instruments or tangible chattel paper solely on behalf and for the benefit of the Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, and each of the Originator and the Seller has caused or will have caused, within ten days after the effective date of the Agreement, the filing of all appropriate financing statements in the proper filing office in the appropriate jurisdictions under applicable law, and all financing statements referred to in this paragraph contain a statement to the effect that: A purchase of or security interest in any collateral described in this financing statement will violate the rights of the Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties.
9.    With respect to the Cash Reserve Account, the Deposit Accounts and the Liquidation Account and all subaccounts of such accounts that constitute deposit accounts, either:
(i) The Seller has delivered to the Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, a fully executed agreement pursuant to which the bank maintaining the deposit accounts has agreed to comply with all instructions originated by the Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, directing disposition of the funds in such accounts without further consent by the Seller; or
(ii) The Seller has taken all steps necessary to cause the Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, to become the account holder of such accounts.
10.    With respect to the Cash Reserve Account, the Deposit Accounts and the Liquidation Account or subaccounts of such accounts that constitute “securities accounts” or “securities entitlements” within the meaning of the Indiana UCC:
(i) The Seller has delivered to the Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, a fully executed agreement pursuant to which the securities intermediary has agreed to comply with all instructions originated by the Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, relating to such account without further consent by the Seller; or
(ii) The Seller has taken all steps necessary to cause the securities intermediary to identify in its records the Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, as the person having a security entitlement against the securities intermediary in each of such accounts.

 
EX-VII-2
 
I\11418185.1




Priority
11.    Other than the transfer of the Receivables to the Seller under the Purchase and Sale Agreement and the security interest granted to the Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, pursuant to this Agreement, neither the Seller nor the Originator has pledged, assigned, sold, granted a security interest in, or otherwise conveyed any of the Pool Receivables or the Cash Reserve Account, the Deposit Accounts, the Liquidation Account or any subaccount of such accounts. Neither the Seller nor the Originator has authorized the filing of, or is aware of any financing statements against the Seller or the Originator that include a description of collateral covering the Pool Receivables or the Cash Reserve Account, the Deposit Accounts, the Liquidation Account or any subaccount of such accounts other than any financing statement relating to the security interest granted to the Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, hereunder or that has been terminated.
12.    Neither the Seller nor the Originator is aware of any judgment, ERISA or tax lien filings against either the Seller or the Originator.
13.    None of the instruments or tangible chattel paper that constitute or evidence the Pool Receivables has any marks or notations indicating that they have been pledged, assigned or otherwise conveyed to any Person other than the Seller or the Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties.
14.    Neither the Cash Reserve Account, the Deposit Accounts, the Liquidation Account nor any subaccount of such accounts are in the name of any person other than the Seller or the Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties. The Seller has not consented to the securities intermediary of any such account to comply with entitlement orders of any person other than the Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties.
15.    Survival of Perfection Representations. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Agreement or any other Transaction Document, the Perfection Representations contained in this Exhibit VII shall be continuing, and remain in full force and effect (notwithstanding any termination of the commitments or any replacement of the Servicer or termination of Servicer’s rights to act as such) until such time as Investments and all other obligations under the Agreement have been finally and fully paid and performed.
16.    No Waiver. The parties to the Agreement: (i) shall not, without obtaining a confirmation of the then-current rating of the Facility, waive any of the Perfection Representations; and (ii) shall provide each Rating Agency rating the Facility with prompt written notice of any breach of the Perfection Representations, and shall not, without obtaining a confirmation of the then-current rating of the Facility (as determined after any adjustment or withdrawal of the ratings following notice of such breach), waive a breach of any of the Perfection Representations.
17.    Servicer to Maintain Perfection and Priority. The Servicer covenants that, in order to evidence the interests of the Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, under this Agreement, Servicer shall take such action, or execute and deliver such instruments (other than effecting a Filing (as defined below), unless such Filing is effected in accordance with this

 
EX-VII-3
 
I\11418185.1




paragraph) as may be necessary or advisable including, without limitation, such actions as are requested by the Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, to maintain and perfect, as a first priority interest (subject only to Permitted Liens), the Agent’s, on behalf of the Secured Parties’, security interest in the Pool Receivables and Collections with respect thereto and the Seller’s right, title and interest in, to and under the Related Security and the proceeds thereof. Servicer shall, from time to time and within the time limits established by law, prepare and present to the Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, for the Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, to authorize (based in reliance on the opinion of counsel hereinafter provided for) the Servicer to file, all financing statements, amendments, continuations, initial financing statements in lieu of a continuation statement, terminations, partial terminations, releases or partial releases, or any other filings necessary or advisable to continue, maintain and perfect the Agent’s, on behalf of the Secured Parties’, security interest in the Pool Receivables and Collections with respect thereto and the Seller’s right, title and interest in, to and under the Related Security and the proceeds thereof as a first-priority interest (subject only to Permitted Liens) (each a “Filing”). Servicer shall present each such Filing to the Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, together with (x) an opinion of counsel as to perfection and such other matters as the Agent may reasonably request with respect to such Filing, and (y) a form of authorization for the Agent’s, on behalf of the Secured Parties’ signature. Upon receipt of such opinion of counsel and form of authorization, the Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, shall promptly authorize in writing Servicer to, and Servicer shall, effect such Filing under the Uniform Commercial Code without the signature of Originator, the Seller, or the Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties where allowed by applicable law. Notwithstanding anything else in the Agreement to the contrary, the Servicer shall not have any authority to effect a Filing without obtaining written authorization from the Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, in accordance with this paragraph (17).
