(f) An opinion of Pledgor’s counsel that Pledgor has the power, right and authority to grant the security interest in the Pledgor Collateral created hereby, that Pledgor has taken all corporate action necessary to authorize the execution and delivery of this Pledge Agreement, and that there is no impediment to the Bank enforcing its interests against the Pledgor Collateral under this Pledge Agreement has been provided to and accepted by the Bank, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit C;

No delay on the part of the Bank in exercising any right, power or privilege shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right, power or privilege preclude other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege or be construed to be a waiver of any Event of Default under the Borrower Advances Agreement. No waiver by the Bank of any such Event of Default shall be effective unless in writing and signed by an authorized officer of the Bank, and no such waiver shall be deemed to be a waiver of a subsequent Event of Default under the Borrower Advances Agreement or be deemed to be a continuing waiver. No course of dealing between Borrower or Pledgor, respectively, and the Bank or its agents or employees shall be effective to change, modify or discharge any provision of this Pledge Agreement, or the Borrower Advances Agreement or to constitute a waiver of any Event of Default there under. If any provision of this Pledge Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable to any extent or in any application, the remainder of this agreement, or application of such provision to different persons or circumstances or in different jurisdictions, shall not be affected thereby.

Exhibit C

Date

Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines

Skywalk Level

801 Walnut Street, Suite 200

Des Moines, Iowa 50309

Ladies and Gentlemen:

I have acted as counsel to                      (“Pledgor”) in connection with the preparation of the Affiliate Collateral Pledge and Security Agreement (the “Agreement”). This opinion letter is rendered pursuant to the Agreement.

In the capacity described above, I have considered such matters of law and of fact, including the examination of originals or copies, certified or otherwise identified to our satisfaction, of such records and documents of the Pledgor, certificates of officers and representatives of the Pledgor, certificates of public officials and such other documents as I have deemed appropriate as a basis for the opinions hereinafter set forth. I have assumed the genuineness of all signatures on original or certified copies and the conformity to original or certified copies of all copies of documents submitted to me. As to various questions of fact relevant to the opinions expressed below, I have relied upon statements or certificates of public officials and of officers and representatives of the Pledgor and its affiliates. I have assumed that the Agreement is enforceable in accordance with its terms against the parties thereto.

Any opinion as to enforceability is limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws now or hereafter in effect relating to creditors’ rights (including, and without limitation, fraudulent conveyance and other laws of similar import) and by equitable principles and defenses affecting creditors’ rights generally, and by the discretion of the courts in granting equitable remedies, including specific performance (regardless whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding at law or in equity and regardless of whether such limitations are derived from constitutions, statutes, judicial decisions or otherwise).

The opinions set forth herein are limited to the laws of the State of                      and applicable federal laws. I express no opinion as to matters governed by law other than the laws of the State of                     .

Based upon and subject to the foregoing, it is my opinion that:

 

  (1) Pledgor was duly organized as a corporation, and is existing and in good standing, under the laws of the State of                     .

 

  (2) Pledgor has the corporate power to execute and deliver the Agreement, to perform its obligations there under, to own and use its assets and to conduct its business.

 

11


  (3) Pledgor has duly authorized the execution and delivery of the Agreement and all performance by Pledgor there under and has duly executed and delivered the Agreement.

 

  (4) The execution and delivery by Pledgor of the Agreement do not, and if Pledgor were now to perform its obligations under the Agreement such performance would not, result in any:

 

  (i) violation of Pledgor’s articles of incorporation or bylaws;

 

  (ii) material violation of any existing federal or state constitution, statute, regulation, rule, order, or law to which Pledgor or the assets are subject;

 

  (iii) material breach of or default under any material written agreements;

 

  (iv) creation or imposition of a material contractual lien or security interest in, on or against the assets under any written agreements; or

 

  (v) violation of any judicial or administrative decree, writ, judgment or order to which, to our knowledge, Pledgor or the assets are subject.

 

  (5) No consent, approval authorization or other action by, or filling with, any governmental authority of the United States or the State of                      is required for Pledgor’s execution and delivery of the Agreement.

 

  (6) The Agreement is enforceable against Pledgor in accordance with its terms.

This opinion letter is provided to you for your exclusive use solely in connection with the Agreement, and may not be relied upon by any other person for any purpose or by you for any other purpose without my prior written consent.

Very truly yours,
