ARTICLE II

 

SALES OF PURCHASER ASSETS

 

Section 2.1           Sale of Loans. (a) Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Seller does hereby sell, transfer, assign, set over and otherwise convey to the Purchaser, without recourse (subject to the obligations herein) all right, title and interest of the Seller in (without duplication):

 

(i)the Loans and all obligations of the Obligors thereunder, excluding amounts received thereunder prior to or on the Cut-off Date;

 

(ii)all Related Security and any Collections and additional monies received under the Loans and Related Security, unless related to amounts due in respect of the Loans on or prior to the Cut-off Date;

 

(iii)the Sale Agreement;

 

(iv)all other property now or hereafter in the possession or custody of, or in transit to, the Servicer, any Sub-Servicer or the Seller relating to any of the foregoing;

 

(v)all Loan Files and Records with respect to any of the foregoing; and

 

(vi)all proceeds of the foregoing (all such assets, collectively, the “Purchaser Assets”).

 

 

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Seller delegates to the Purchaser any remaining obligations of the Seller under any Loan, and the Purchaser assumes such obligations.

 

(b)          On or before the Closing Date, the Seller shall (i) indicate in its records that the Purchaser Assets have been sold to the Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement by so identifying the Purchaser Assets with an appropriate notation and (ii) deliver to the Purchaser or its designee the following documents (collectively, the “Loan Files”):

 

(i)the original fully executed copy of the Loan;

 

(ii)a record or facsimile of the original credit application, if obtained, fully executed by the Obligor;

 

(iii)the original certificate of title or file stamped copy of the UCC financing statement or such other documents evidencing the security interest of the Purchaser in the Equipment; and

 

(iv)any and all other material documents relating to a Loan, an Obligor or any of the Equipment.

 

Section 2.2           Grant of Security Interest; Subordination. (a) The parties hereto intend that the transfer, sale and assignment pursuant to Section 2.1 hereof shall constitute a purchase and sale and not a loan. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Section 2.2, if a court of competent jurisdiction determines that the sale provided for herein constitutes the grant of security for a loan (the “Deemed Loan”) and not a purchase and sale or contribution, then:

 

(i)The parties hereto intend that this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under applicable law and that the Seller shall be deemed to have granted, and the Seller hereby grants, to the Purchaser a first priority lien and security interest in and to all of the Seller’s right, title and interest in, to and under the Purchaser Assets, all other Related Documents to which the Seller is a party and all proceeds thereof (collectively, the “Deemed Collateral”). The possession by the Purchaser of notes and such other goods, money, documents, chattel paper or certificated securities shall be deemed to be “possession by or delivery to the secured party” for purposes of perfecting the security interest pursuant to the UCC in force in the relevant jurisdiction (including, without limitation, Section 9-313(c)(1) thereof). Notifications to Persons holding such property, and acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from Persons holding such property, shall be deemed notifications to, or acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from, bailees or agents (as applicable) of the Purchaser for the purpose of perfecting such security interest under applicable law (except that nothing in this sentence shall cause any Person to be deemed to be an agent of the Purchaser for any purpose other than for perfection of such security interest unless, and then only to the extent, expressly appointed and authorized by the Purchaser in writing).

 

 

 

(ii)The Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the Deemed Loan is a non-recourse obligation of the Seller secured solely by the Deemed Collateral and does not represent an interest in any assets (other than the Deemed Collateral) of the Seller (including by virtue of any deficiency claim in respect of obligations not paid or otherwise satisfied from the Deemed Collateral and proceeds thereof). In furtherance of and not in derogation of the foregoing, the Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that:

 

(A)The Purchaser shall not have any right, title or interest in or to any assets (or interests therein) (other than the Deemed Collateral) conveyed or purported to be conveyed by the Seller to any other Person or Persons (whether by way of a sale, capital contribution or by virtue of the granting of a lien) (“Other Assets”); and

 

(B)the Deemed Loan constitutes a claim (as defined in Section 101 of the Bankruptcy Code) which may be satisfied solely from the Deemed Collateral and its proceeds (whether through ordinary liquidation or the exercise of UCC remedies and other remedies provided herein) and does not constitute a claim against the Seller to the extent that the Deemed Collateral and such proceeds are insufficient to repay the Deemed Loan (including interest thereon, whether accrued before or after the filing of a bankruptcy petition) in full.

 

(iii)To the extent that, notwithstanding the agreements and provisions contained in clause (ii) above, the Purchaser either (A) asserts an interest or claim to, or benefit from, Other Assets, or (B) is deemed to have any such interest, claim or benefit in or from Other Assets, whether by operation of law, legal process, pursuant to applicable provisions of insolvency laws or otherwise (including by virtue of Section 1111(b) of the Bankruptcy Code or any successor provision having similar effect under the Bankruptcy Code), then the Purchaser further acknowledges and agrees that any such interest, claim or benefit in or from Other Assets is and shall be expressly subordinated to the indefeasible payment in full of all obligations and liabilities of the Seller other than the Deemed Loan, including, the payment of post-petition interest on such other obligations and liabilities. This subordination agreement shall be deemed a subordination agreement within the meaning of Section 510(a) of the Bankruptcy Code. The Purchaser further acknowledges and agrees that no adequate remedy at law exists for a breach of this Section 2.2 and the terms of this Section 2.2 may be enforced by an action for specific performance.

 

(b)          The Purchaser shall not file or join in a filing of a petition with respect to any bankruptcy reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceedings, or similar proceedings under any United States Federal or State bankruptcy or similar law relating to the Seller, or cooperate or encourage others to file such a petition.

 

 

 

(c)          The Seller hereby authorizes the Purchaser to file financing statements in respect of the Seller covering the Purchaser Assets and the proceeds thereof.

 

Section 2.3           Sale Price. On the Closing Date, the Purchaser shall, upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions set forth in Article III, pay the purchase price in the form of (i) the issuance and exchange of the Notes and (ii) an increase in the Seller’s equity interest in the Purchaser (together, the “Purchaser Purchase Price”) as consideration for the Purchaser Assets sold and transferred by the Seller to the Purchaser pursuant to Section 2.1 hereof, which Purchaser Purchase Price shall be acknowledged by the Seller and the Purchaser to be the fair market value thereof.

 

Section 2.4           Removal and Sale of Loans. (a) In the event that a Loan becomes a Delinquent Loan or the Obligor thereon is subject to a bankruptcy proceeding, the Seller shall be granted an assignable option (a “Purchase Option”) to purchase such Delinquent Loan and the other related Purchaser Assets, subject to the terms and conditions herein, from the Purchaser at a price (the “Option Price”) equal to the Purchase Amount. The Seller may sell, transfer, assign or otherwise convey its Purchase Option with respect to any such Loan and the other related Purchaser Assets to any party at any time after the related Loan becomes a Delinquent Loan or the Obligor thereon is subject to a bankruptcy proceeding. The Seller shall notify the Purchaser of such transfer and such notice shall include the transferee’s name, address, telephone number, facsimile number and appropriate contact person(s) and shall be acknowledged in writing by the transferee. If not exercised earlier, the Purchase Option with respect to any such Loan and the other related Purchaser Assets shall automatically terminate upon (i) in the case of a Delinquent Loan, the related Obligor’s cure of all defaults on the Loan, (ii) the acquisition by, or on behalf of, the Purchaser of the related Equipment through repossession or (iii) a repurchase of such Loan and the other related Purchaser Assets due to the Seller’s breach of a representation with respect to such Loan. The Pool Balance of Loans with respect to which the Seller may exercise its Purchase Option at any time before the Redemption Date shall not exceed 10% of the aggregate Pool Balance of the Loans as of the Cut-off Date.

 

(b)          Upon a Loan becoming a Delinquent Loan or the Obligor thereon becoming subject to a bankruptcy proceeding, the Seller may exercise the Purchase Option by providing the Purchaser at least five (5) days’ prior written notice thereof (the “Purchase Option Notice”), which notice shall specify a cash exercise price at least equal to the Option Price. The Purchase Option Notice shall be delivered in the manner specified in Section 2.4(a). The exercise of any Purchase Option pursuant to this clause (b) shall be irrevocable.

 

(c)          Upon exercise of a Purchase Option, the Seller shall be required to pay the Option Price specified in its Purchase Option Notice to the Purchaser within ten (10) Business Days of exercising its Purchase Option. The proceeds of any sale of such Loan and the other related Purchaser Assets, after deduction of the expenses of such sale incurred in connection therewith, shall be deposited by the Seller no later than the day before the next Payment Date.

 

 

 

(d)          In the event that a Loan was originated by a business unit or equipment financing platform that GE Capital wishes to exit, financed under a vendor program that is terminated in the ordinary course by GE Capital, or is part of an Obligor relationship that GE Capital elects to reduce or exit for risk exposure reasons in accordance with its credit and collection policies, the Purchaser shall be entitled to sell such Loan and the other related Purchaser Assets purchased by it pursuant to this Section 2.4 to a third-party for a cash price equal to the greater of (x) the Purchase Amount and (y) the fair market value of the Loan. The proceeds of any sale of such Loan and other related Purchaser Assets, after deduction of the expenses of such sale incurred in connection therewith, shall be deposited by the Seller no later than the day before the next Payment Date.

PERFECTION REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND COVENANTS

 

In addition to the representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Purchase and Sale Agreement, to induce the Purchaser to enter into the Purchase and Sale Agreement, the Seller hereby represents, warrants, and covenants to Purchaser as follows, on the Closing Date:

 

General

 

1.          The Purchase and Sale Agreement creates a valid and continuing security interest (as defined in the applicable UCC) in the Collateral in favor of the Purchaser, which security interest is prior to all other Liens, and is enforceable as such as against creditors of and purchasers from the Seller.

 

2.          The Purchaser Assets constitute “accounts,” “general intangibles,” “instruments,” or “tangible chattel paper,” within the meaning of the UCC as in effect in the State of New York.

 

3.          The Seller has taken all steps necessary to perfect its security interest in the property securing the Loans that constitute chattel paper in favor of the Purchaser.

 

Creation

 

4.          The Seller owns and has good and marketable title to the Purchaser Assets free and clear of any Lien, claim or encumbrance of any Person, excepting only liens for taxes, assessments or similar governmental charges or levies incurred in the ordinary course of business that are not yet due and payable or as to which any applicable grace period shall not have expired, or that are being contested in good faith by proper proceedings and for which adequate reserves have been established, but only so long as foreclosure with respect to such a lien is not imminent and the use and value of the property to which the Lien attaches is not impaired during the pendency of such proceeding.

 

Perfection

 

5.          The Seller has caused or will have caused, within ten (10) days after the effective date of the Purchase and Sale 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 Purchaser Assets from the Seller to the Purchaser, and the security interest in the Purchaser Assets granted to the Purchaser hereunder and all financing statements referred to in this paragraph contain a statement that: “A purchase of or security interest in any collateral described in this financing statement will violate the rights of the Purchaser.”.

 

6.          With respect to Purchaser Assets that constitute an instrument or tangible chattel paper, either:

 

 Sch. 4.4 - 1Loan Purchase and Sale Agreement
 

 

(a)          Such instruments or tangible chattel paper are in the possession of a custodian and the Purchaser has received a written acknowledgment from the custodian that the custodian is holding such instruments or tangible chattel paper to effect the Purchaser’s security interest therein; or

 

(b)          A custodian received possession of such instruments or tangible chattel paper after the Purchaser received a written acknowledgment from such custodian that such custodian is acting to effect the Purchaser’s security interest therein.

 

Priority

 

7.          Other than the transfer of the Purchaser Assets to the Seller under the Sale Agreement, the security interest granted to the Purchaser pursuant to the Purchase and Sale Agreement and the security interest granted to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to the Indenture, neither the Seller nor the Purchaser has pledged, assigned, sold, granted a security interest in, or otherwise conveyed any of the Purchaser Assets. Neither the Seller nor the Purchaser has authorized the filing of, or is aware of any financing statements against the Seller or the Purchaser that include a description of collateral covering any Purchaser Assets other than any financing statement relating to the security interest granted to the Purchaser hereunder or to the Indenture Trustee under the Indenture or that has been terminated.

 

8.          Survival of Perfection Representations. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Purchase and Sale Agreement or any other Related Document, the Perfection Representations contained in this Schedule 4.4 shall be continuing, and remain in full force and effect and shall continue until the payment in full of all Purchaser Assets.

 

10.         No Waiver. The parties to the Purchase and Sale Agreement: (i) shall not, unless the Rating Agency Condition shall have been satisfied, waive any of the Perfection Representations; (ii) shall provide the Ratings Agencies with prompt written notice of any breach of the Perfection Representations, and (iii) shall not, unless the Rating Agency Condition shall have been satisfied (as determined after any adjustment or withdrawal of the ratings following notice of such breach) waive a breach of any of the Perfection Representations.

 

11.         Seller to Maintain Perfection and Priority. The Seller covenants that, in order to evidence the interests of the Seller and the Purchaser under the Purchase and Sale Agreement, the Seller shall execute and deliver such instruments (other than effecting a Filing (as defined below), unless such Filing is effected in accordance with this paragraph) as may be necessary or advisable (including, without limitation, such actions as are requested by the Purchaser) to maintain and perfect, as a first priority interest, the Purchaser’s security interest in the Purchaser Assets. The Seller shall within the time limits established by law, prepare and present to the Purchaser for the Purchaser 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 Purchaser’s security interest in the Purchaser Assets as a first-priority interest (each a “Filing”). The Seller shall present each such Filing to the Purchaser together with (x) an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such Filing is (i) consistent with grant of the security interest to the Purchaser pursuant to the Granting Clause of the Purchase and Sale Agreement, (ii) satisfies all requirements and conditions to such Filing in the Purchase and Sale Agreement and (iii) satisfies the requirements for a Filing of such type under the Uniform Commercial Code in the applicable jurisdiction (or if the Uniform Commercial Code does not apply, the applicable statute governing the perfection of security interests), and (y) a form of authorization for the Seller’s signature authorizing the Servicer to effect such Filing under the Uniform Commercial Code without the signature of the Seller where allowed by applicable law.

Exhibit 4.2(f)

 

SEPARATE IDENTITY PROVISIONS

 

The Purchaser, GE Capital and the Seller have and will continue (in each case, to the extent within its control) to maintain the Purchaser’s separate existence and identity and have and will continue to take all steps necessary to make it apparent to third parties that the Purchaser is an entity with assets and liabilities distinct from those of the Seller or GE Capital or any other Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Seller or GE Capital. In addition to the foregoing, such steps and indicia of the Purchaser’s separate identity include the following:

 

(a)          The Purchaser does and will maintain its own stationery and other business forms separate from those of any other Person (including the Seller and GE Capital), and will conduct business in its own name except that certain Persons may act on behalf of the Purchaser as agents;

 

(b)          The Purchaser maintains and will maintain separate office space of its own as part of its operations, although such space is in a building shared with GE Capital. The corporate or limited liability company records, the other books and records, and the other assets of the Purchaser are and will be segregated from the property of the Seller;

 

(c)          GE Capital will issue consolidated financial statements, which include the Seller, the Purchaser and other Subsidiaries thereof. Consequently, GE Capital’s financial statements also will show Purchaser Assets that have been sold by the Seller to the Purchaser as assets of GE Capital and its consolidated Subsidiaries. The Seller, GE Capital and the Purchaser will take certain actions to disclose publicly the Purchaser’s separate existence and the transactions contemplated hereby, including through the filing of the UCC Financing Statements. None of the Seller, GE Capital or the Purchaser has concealed or will conceal from any interested party any transfers contemplated by the Related Documents;

 

(d)          The Purchaser will not have its own employees, and, as indicated, the Purchaser’s business relating to the Purchaser Assets may be conducted through agents. However, any allocations of direct, indirect or overhead expenses for items shared between the Purchaser or GE Capital that are not included as part of the Servicing Fee are and will be made among such entities to the extent practical on the basis of actual use or value of services rendered and otherwise on a basis reasonably related to actual use or the value of services rendered;

 

(e)          Except as provided in paragraph (d) above regarding the allocation of certain shared overhead items, the Purchaser does and will pay its own operating expenses and liabilities from its own funds, except GE Capital did and will pay all expenses of the Purchaser incurred in connection with the transactions entered into pursuant to the Related Documents, including those related to the Purchaser’s organization;

 

 Exhibit 4.2(f) - 1Loan Purchase and Sale Agreement
 

 

(f)          Each of the Seller, GE Capital and the Purchaser does and will maintain its assets and liabilities in such a manner that it is not costly or difficult to segregate, ascertain or otherwise identify the Purchaser’s individual assets and liabilities from those of the Seller or GE Capital or from those of any other person or entity, including any other Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Seller or GE Capital. Except as set forth below, the Purchaser does and will maintain its own books of account and corporate or limited liability company records separate from the Seller and GE Capital or any other Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Seller and GE Capital. Monetary transactions, including those with each other, are and will continue to be properly reflected in their respective financial records. The Purchaser does not and will not commingle or pool its funds or other assets or liabilities with those of the Seller or GE Capital or any other Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Seller or GE Capital except as specifically provided in the Related Documents with respect to the temporary commingling of Collections and with respect to GE Capital’s retention, in its capacity as Servicer of the Loans, of the books and records pertaining to the Purchaser Assets. However, GE Capital will not generally make the books and records relating to the Purchaser Assets available to any of creditors or other interested Persons of the Purchaser or the Seller. The Purchaser does not and will not maintain joint bank accounts or other depository accounts to which the Seller or GE Capital or any other Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Seller or GE Capital (other than in GE Capital’s capacity as Servicer) has independent access;

 

(g)          The Purchaser will strictly observe corporate or limited liability company formalities, and the Seller and GE Capital will strictly observe corporate formalities with respect to its dealings with the Purchaser. Specifically, no transfer of assets between any of the Seller and GE Capital, on the one hand, and the Purchaser, on the other, will be made without adherence to corporate or limited liability company formalities;

 

(h)          The transactions among the Purchaser and the Seller or GE Capital, including the terms governing any servicer advances and the amount and payment of the Servicing Fee, are on terms and conditions that are consistent with those of arm’s-length relationships. Neither the Seller nor GE Capital is or will be, or holds or will hold itself out to be, responsible for the debts of the Purchaser, except as provided in: the representations made by GE Capital (including, if applicable, as a servicer or a sub-servicer) to the Purchaser relating to the Purchaser Assets and their prior ownership and servicing thereof, as applicable. The Purchaser will not guaranty the debts of the Seller or GE Capital;

 

(i)          All distributions made by the Purchaser to the Seller as its sole member shall be in accordance with applicable law;

 

(j)          Any other transactions between the Purchaser and the Seller or GE Capital permitted by (although not expressly provided for in) the Related Documents have been and will be fair and equitable to each of the parties, have been and will be the type of transaction that would be entered into by a prudent Person or entity, and have been and will be on terms that are at least as favorable as may be obtained from a third party Person;

 

(k)          The Purchaser is not named and has not entered into any agreement to be named, directly or indirectly, as a direct or contingent beneficiary or loss payee on any insurance policy covering the assets of the Seller or GE Capital; and

 

(l)          On balance, the Purchaser has been and will be held out to the public as a separate entity apart from each of the Seller and GE Capital.
