(xv)           With respect to the first sale of Loans from SLM ECFC to the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee for the benefit of Funding it has caused or will have caused, within ten days of the Closing Date, the filing of all appropriate financing statements in the proper filing office in the appropriate jurisdictions under applicable law in order to perfect the security interest in the Loans granted to Funding and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee hereunder;
 
(xvi)           Except for Purchased Loans executed electronically, there is only one original executed copy of the Note evidencing each Purchased Loan. For Purchased Loans that were executed electronically, either (i) the Servicer has possession of the electronic records evidencing the Note or (ii) the Seller has agreements with the previous holders or servicers of such Note under which the relevant holder or servicer agrees to hold and maintain the electronic records evidencing the notes, in each case as may be necessary to enforce the Note or as may be required by applicable e-sign laws.  The Interim Eligible Lender Trustee has in its possession a copy of the endorsement and Loan Transmittal Summary Form identifying the Notes that constitute or evidence the Purchased Loans.  The Notes that constitute or evidence the Purchased Loans do not have any marks or notations indicating that they have been pledged, assigned or otherwise conveyed to any Person other than the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee.  All financing statements filed or to be filed against SLM ECFC in favor of the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee on behalf of Funding in connection herewith describing the Loans contain a statement to the following effect: “A purchase of or security interest in any collateral described in this financing statement will violate the rights of the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee;”
 
(xvii)           Other than the security interest granted to Funding and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee on behalf of Funding pursuant to this Agreement, SLM ECFC has not pledged, assigned, sold, granted a security interest in, or otherwise conveyed any of the Purchased Loans.  SLM ECFC has not authorized the filing of and is not aware of any financing statements against SLM ECFC that include a description of collateral covering the Purchased Loans other than any financing statement relating to the security interest granted to Funding and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee on behalf of Funding hereunder or any other security interest that has been terminated. SLM ECFC is not aware of any judgment or tax lien filings against SLM ECFC;
 
(xviii)           No Borrower of a Purchased Loan as of the Statistical Cutoff Date, in the case of the Initial Loans, or as of the related Subsequent Cutoff Date, in the case of any Additional Loan or Substituted Loan, is noted in the related Trust Student Loan File as being currently involved in a bankruptcy proceeding;
 
 
14

 
(xix)           With respect to all Additional Loans (other than with respect to Substituted Loans), the Supplemental Purchase Period is in full force and effect; and
 
(xx)           No Loan with a Borrower who resides in New York City has a Borrower who has not made all payments then due and payable.
 
(C)               The Interim Eligible Lender Trustee represents and warrants that as of the date of each Purchase Agreement and each Bill of Sale:
 
(i)           The Interim Eligible Lender Trustee is duly organized and validly existing in good standing under the laws of its governing jurisdiction and has an office located within the State of New York.  It has all requisite corporate power and authority to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under these Master Terms, each Purchase Agreement and each Bill of Sale;
 
(ii)           The Interim Eligible Lender Trustee has taken all corporate action necessary to authorize the execution and delivery by it of these Master Terms and each Purchase Agreement, and these Master Terms and each Purchase Agreement will be executed and delivered by two of its officers who are duly authorized to execute and deliver these Master Terms and each Purchase Agreement on its behalf;
 
(iii)           Neither the execution nor the delivery by it of these Master Terms and each Purchase Agreement, nor the consummation by it of the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby nor compliance by it with any of the terms or provisions hereof or thereof will contravene any federal or New York state law, governmental rule or regulation governing the banking or trust powers of the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee or any judgment or order binding on it, or constitute any default under its charter documents or by-laws; and
 
(iv)           The Interim Eligible Lender Trustee is an “eligible lender” as such term is defined in Section 435(d) of the Higher Education Act, for purposes of holding legal title to the Trust Student Loans as contemplated by these Master Terms, each Purchase Agreement and the other Basic Documents, it has a lender identification number with respect to the Trust Student Loans from the Department and has in effect a Guarantee Agreement with each of the Guarantors with respect to the Trust Student Loans.
 
SECTION 6.    REPURCHASE OF TRUST STUDENT LOANS; REIMBURSEMENT
 
(A)           Each party to these Master Terms shall give notice to the other parties promptly, in writing, upon the discovery of any breach of SLM ECFC’s representations and warranties made pursuant to Sections 5(A) and (B) hereof which has a materially adverse effect on the interest of Funding in any Trust Student Loan.  In the event of such a material breach which is not curable by reinstatement of the applicable Guarantor’s guarantee of such Trust Student Loan, SLM ECFC shall repurchase any affected Trust Student Loan not later than 120 days following the earlier of the date of discovery of such material breach and the date of receipt of the Guarantor reject transmittal form with respect to such Trust Student Loan.  In the event of such a material breach which is curable by reinstatement of the Guarantor’s guarantee of such Trust Student Loan, unless the material breach shall have been cured within 360 days following the earlier of the date of discovery of such material breach and the date of receipt of the Guarantor reject transmittal form with respect to such Trust Student Loan, SLM ECFC shall purchase such Trust
 
 
15

 
Student Loan from Funding (or, at the direction of Funding, from the Trust) not later than the sixtieth day following the end of such 360-day period.  SLM ECFC shall also remit as provided in Section 2.6 of the Administration Agreement on the date of repurchase of any Trust Student Loan pursuant to this Section 6(A) an amount equal to all non-guaranteed interest amounts and net forfeited Interest Subsidy Payments and Special Allowance Payments with respect to such Trust Student Loan (to the extent not included in the calculation of the Purchase Amount).  In consideration of the purchase of any such Trust Student Loan pursuant to this Section 6(A), SLM ECFC shall remit the Purchase Amount along with those amounts set forth in the immediately preceding sentence in the manner specified in Section 2.6 of the Administration Agreement.  For the avoidance of doubt, any lien created pursuant to the Indenture with respect to any such purchased Trust Student Loan shall be released upon receipt of the related Purchase Amount along with the payment of such other amounts referred to in the immediately preceding sentence.
 
In addition, if any breach of Sections 5(A) and (B) hereof by SLM ECFC does not trigger such repurchase obligation but does result in the refusal by a Guarantor to guarantee all or a portion of the accrued interest (or any obligation of Funding to repay such interest to a Guarantor), or the loss (including any obligation of Funding to repay the Department) of Interest Subsidy Payments and Special Allowance Payments, with respect to any Trust Student Loan affected by such breach, then SLM ECFC shall reimburse Funding by remitting an amount equal to the sum of all such non-guaranteed interest amounts and such forfeited Interest Subsidy Payments or Special Allowance Payments in the manner specified in Section 2.6 of the Administration Agreement not later than (i) the last day of the next Collection Period ending not less than 60 days from the date of the Guarantor’s refusal to guarantee all or a portion of accrued interest or loss of Interest Subsidy Payments or Special Allowance Payments, or (ii) in the case where SLM ECFC reasonably believes such losses are likely to be collected, not later than the last day of the next Collection Period ending not less than 360 days from the date of the Guarantor’s refusal to guarantee all or a portion of accrued interest or loss of Interest Subsidy Payments or Special Allowance Payments.  At the time such payment is made, SLM ECFC shall not be required to reimburse Funding for interest that is then capitalized, however, such amounts shall be reimbursed if the Borrower subsequently defaults and such capitalized interest is not paid by the Guarantor.
 
Anything in this Section 6(A) to the contrary notwithstanding, if as of the last Business Day of any month the aggregate outstanding principal amount of Trust Student Loans with respect to which claims have been filed with and rejected by a Guarantor because of a breach by SLM ECFC or the Servicer or with respect to which the Servicer determines that claims cannot be filed pursuant to the Higher Education Act, in each case as a result of a breach by SLM ECFC or the Servicer, exceeds 1% of the Pool Balance, SLM ECFC (or the Servicer as provided in the
 
 
16

 
Servicing Agreement) shall purchase, within 30 days of a written request of the Indenture Trustee, such affected Trust Student Loans in an aggregate principal amount such that after such purchase the aggregate principal amount of such affected Trust Student Loans is less than 1% of the Pool Balance.  The Trust Student Loans to be purchased by SLM ECFC and the Servicer pursuant to the preceding sentence shall be based on the date of claim rejection (or the date of notice referred to in the first sentence of this Section 6(A)) with Trust Student Loans with the earliest such date to be repurchased first.
 
(B)               In lieu of repurchasing Trust Student Loans pursuant to Section 6(A), SLM ECFC may, at its option, substitute Eligible Loans or arrange for the substitution of Eligible Loans which are substantially similar on an aggregate basis as of the date of substitution to the Trust Student Loans for which they are being substituted with respect to the following characteristics:
 
 
1.
status (i.e., in-school, grace, deferment, forbearance or repayment),
 
 
2.
program type (i.e., Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, Subsidized Stafford Loan (pre-1993 vs. post-1993), PLUS Loan or SLS Loan),
 
 
3.
guarantee percentage,
 
 
4.
school type,
 
 
5.
total return,
 
 
6.
principal balance, and
 
 
7.
remaining term to maturity.
 
In addition, each substituted Eligible Loan will comply, as of the date of substitution, with all of the representations and warranties made hereunder.  In choosing Eligible Loans to be substituted pursuant to this Section 6(B), SLM ECFC shall make a reasonable determination that the Eligible Loans to be substituted will not have a material adverse effect on the Noteholders.  In connection with each substitution a Purchase Agreement and related Bill of Sale regarding such Substituted Loans will be executed and delivered by the applicable parties.
 
In the event that SLM ECFC elects to substitute Eligible Loans pursuant to this Section 6(B), SLM ECFC will remit to the Administrator the amount of any shortfall between the Purchase Amount of the substituted Eligible Loans and the Purchase Amount of the Trust Student Loans for which they are being substituted. SLM ECFC shall also remit to Funding (or, at the direction of Funding, to the Trust) an amount equal to all non-guaranteed interest amounts and forfeited Interest Subsidy Payments and Special Allowance Payments with respect to the Trust Student Loans that are being removed, in the manner provided in Section 2.6 of the Administration Agreement.
 

 
17

 


(C)               The sole remedy of Funding, the Eligible Lender Trustee and the Noteholders with respect to a breach by SLM ECFC pursuant to Sections 5(A) and (B) hereof shall be to require SLM ECFC to purchase such Trust Student Loans, to reimburse Funding as provided in Section 6(A) above or to substitute Eligible Loans pursuant to Section 6(B) above.  The Eligible Lender Trustee shall have no duty to conduct any affirmative investigation as to the occurrence of any condition requiring the purchase of any Trust Student Loan or the reimbursement for any forfeiture of Interest Subsidy Payments or Special Allowance Payments pursuant to this Section 6.
 
SECTION 7.    OBLIGATION TO REMIT SUBSEQUENT PAYMENTS AND FORWARD COMMUNICATIONS
 
(A)               Any payment received by SLM ECFC with respect to amounts accrued after the date of the related Bill of Sale for any Purchased Loan sold to Funding, which payment is not reflected in the related Loan Transmittal Summary Form, shall be received by SLM ECFC in trust for the account of Funding and SLM ECFC hereby disclaims any title to or interest in any such amounts.  Within two (2) Business Days following the date of receipt, SLM ECFC shall remit to Funding an amount equal to any such payments along with a listing on a form provided by Funding identifying the Purchased Loans with respect to which such payments were made, the amount of each such payment and the date each such payment was received.
 
(B)               Any written communication received at any time by SLM ECFC with respect to any Loan subject to these Master Terms or the related Purchase Agreement shall be transmitted by SLM ECFC to the Servicer within two (2) Business Days of receipt.  Such communications shall include, but not be limited to, letters, notices of death or disability, notices of bankruptcy, forms requesting deferment of repayment or loan cancellation, and like documents.
 
SECTION 8.    CONTINUING OBLIGATION OF THE SELLER
 
SLM ECFC shall provide all reasonable assistance necessary for Funding to resolve account problems raised by any Borrower, the Guarantor or the Secretary provided such account problems are attributable to or are alleged to be attributable to (a) an event occurring during the period SLM ECFC owned the related Purchased Loan, or (b) a payment made or alleged to have been made to SLM ECFC.  Further, SLM ECFC agrees to reasonably cooperate in the preparation and filing of any financing statements at the request of Funding in order to reflect Funding’s interest in the Loans.
 
SECTION 9.    LIABILITY OF THE SELLER; INDEMNITIES
 
SLM ECFC shall be liable in accordance herewith only to the extent of the obligations specifically undertaken by SLM ECFC under these Master Terms and each related Purchase Agreement.
 

 
18

 


(i)           SLM ECFC shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Funding and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee in its individual capacity and their officers, directors, employees and agents from and against any taxes that may at any time be asserted against any such Person with respect to the transactions contemplated herein and in the other Basic Documents (except any such income taxes arising out of fees paid to the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee), including any sales, gross receipts, general corporation, tangible and intangible personal property, privilege or license taxes (but, in the case of Funding, not including any taxes asserted with respect to, and as of the date of, the sale of the Purchased Loans to the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee on behalf of Funding, or asserted with respect to ownership of the Trust Student Loans) and costs and expenses in defending against the same.
 
(ii)           SLM ECFC shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Funding and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee in its individual capacity, and the officers, directors, employees and agents of Funding and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee from and against any and all costs, expenses, losses, claims, damages and liabilities arising out of, or imposed upon such Person through, SLM ECFC’s willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence in the performance of its duties under these Master Terms, or by reason of reckless disregard of its obligations and duties under these Master Terms.
 
(iii)           SLM ECFC shall be liable as primary obligor for, and shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee in its individual capacity and its officers, directors, employees and agents from and against, all costs, expenses, losses, claims, damages, obligations and liabilities arising out of, incurred in connection with or relating to these Master Terms, the other Basic Documents, the acceptance or performance of the trusts and duties set forth herein and in the Sale Agreement or the action or the inaction of the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee hereunder, except to the extent that such cost, expense, loss, claim, damage, obligation or liability:  (a) shall be due to the willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence (except for errors in judgment) of the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee, (b) shall arise from any breach by the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee of its covenants in its individual capacity made under any of the Basic Documents; or (c) shall arise from the breach by the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee of any of its representations or warranties made in its individual capacity set forth in these Master Terms or any Purchase Agreement.  In the event of any claim, action or proceeding for which indemnity will be sought pursuant to this paragraph, the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee’s choice of legal counsel shall be subject to the approval of SLM ECFC, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld.
 
Indemnification under this Section 9 shall survive the resignation or removal of the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee and the termination of these Master Terms, and shall include reasonable fees and expenses of counsel and expenses of litigation.  If SLM ECFC shall have made any indemnity payments pursuant to this Section and the Person to or on behalf of whom such payments are made thereafter shall collect any of such amounts from others, such Person shall promptly repay such amounts to SLM ECFC, without interest.
 
 
19

 
SECTION 10.    MERGER OR CONSOLIDATION OF, OR ASSUMPTION OF THE OBLIGATIONS OF THE SELLER
 
Any Person (a) into which SLM ECFC may be merged or consolidated, (b) which may result from any merger or consolidation to which SLM ECFC shall be a party or (c) which may succeed to the properties and assets of SLM ECFC substantially as a whole, shall be the successor to SLM ECFC without the execution or filing of any document or any further act by any of the parties to these Master Terms; provided, however, that SLM ECFC hereby covenants that it will not consummate any of the foregoing transactions except upon satisfaction of the following:  (i) the surviving Person, if other than SLM ECFC, executes an agreement of assumption to perform every obligation of SLM ECFC under these Master Terms, each Purchase Agreement and each Bill of Sale; (ii) immediately after giving effect to such transaction, no representation or warranty made pursuant to Section 5(A) shall have been breached; (iii) the surviving Person, if other than SLM ECFC, shall have delivered to the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee an Officers’ Certificate and an Opinion of Counsel each stating that such consolidation, merger or succession and such agreement of assumption comply with this Section and that all conditions precedent, if any, provided for in these Master Terms relating to such transaction have been complied with, and that the Rating Agency Condition shall have been satisfied with respect to such transaction; and (iv) if SLM ECFC is not the surviving entity, SLM ECFC shall have delivered to the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee an Opinion of Counsel either (A) stating that, in the opinion of such counsel, all financing statements and continuation statements and amendments thereto have been executed and filed that are necessary fully to preserve and protect the interest of Funding and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee, respectively, in the Purchased Loans and reciting the details of such filings, or (B) stating that, in the opinion of such counsel, no such action shall be necessary to preserve and protect such interests.
 
SECTION 11.    LIMITATION ON LIABILITY OF SLM ECFC AND OTHERS
 
SLM ECFC and any director or officer or employee or agent thereof may rely in good faith on the advice of counsel or on any document of any kind, prima facie properly executed and submitted by any Person respecting any matters arising hereunder (provided that such reliance shall not limit in any way SLM ECFC’s obligations under Section 6).  SLM ECFC shall not be under any obligation to appear in, prosecute or defend any legal action that shall not be incidental to its obligations under these Master Terms or any Purchase Agreement, and that in its opinion may involve it in any expense or liability.  Except as provided herein, the repurchase (or substitution) and reimbursement obligations of SLM ECFC will constitute the sole remedy available to Funding for uncured breaches; provided, however, that the information with respect to the Purchased Loans listed on the related Bill of Sale may be adjusted in the ordinary course of business subsequent to the date of the related Bill of Sale and to the extent that the aggregate Principal Balance of the Purchased Loans listed on the related Bill of Sale is lesser than or greater than the aggregate Principal Balance stated on the related Bill of Sale, (i) if lesser, SLM ECFC shall remit such amount to Funding and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee, for the benefit of and on behalf of Funding, and (ii) if greater, Funding shall remit such amount to SLM ECFC.  Such reconciliation payment shall be made from time to time but no less frequently than semi-annually.
 
 
20

 
SECTION 12.    LIMITATION OF LIABILITY OF INTERIM ELIGIBLE LENDER
 
Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, these Master Terms and the Initial Purchase Agreement have been, and any Additional Purchase Agreement will be, signed by Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, not in its individual capacity but solely in its capacity as Interim Eligible Lender Trustee for Funding, and in no event shall Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, in its individual capacity have any liability for the representations, warranties, covenants, agreements or other obligations of the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee or Funding, under these Master Terms or any Purchase Agreements or in any of the certificates, notices or agreements delivered pursuant hereto, as to all of which recourse shall be had solely to the assets of Funding.
 
SECTION 13.    EXPENSES
 
Except as otherwise provided herein, each party to these Master Terms or any Purchase Agreement (other than the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee) shall pay its own expense incurred in connection with the preparation, execution and delivery of these Master Terms and any Purchase Agreement and the transactions contemplated herein or therein.
 
SECTION 14.    SURVIVAL OF COVENANTS/SUPERSESSION
 
All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made herein and in or pursuant to the Initial Purchase Agreement and each Additional Purchase Agreement executed pursuant to these Master Terms shall survive the consummation of the acquisition of the Purchased Loans provided for in the related Purchase Agreement.  All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made or furnished pursuant hereto by or on behalf of SLM ECFC shall bind and inure to the benefit of any successors or assigns of Funding and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee on behalf of Funding and shall survive with respect to each Purchased Loan.  Each Purchase Agreement supersedes all previous agreements and understandings between Funding and SLM ECFC with respect to the subject matter thereof.  These Master Terms and any Purchase Agreement may be changed, modified or discharged, and any rights or obligations hereunder may be waived, only by a written instrument signed by a duly authorized officer of the party against whom enforcement of any such waiver, change, modification or discharge is sought.  The waiver by Funding of any covenant, agreement, representation or warranty required to be made or furnished by SLM ECFC or the waiver by Funding of any provision herein contained or contained in any Purchase Agreement shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any breach of any other covenant, agreement, representation, warranty or provision herein contained, nor shall any waiver or any custom or practice which may evolve between the parties in the administration of the terms hereof or of any Purchase Agreement, be construed to lessen the right of Funding to insist upon the performance by SLM ECFC in strict accordance with said terms.
 

 
21

 


SECTION 15.    COMMUNICATION AND NOTICE REQUIREMENTS
 
All communications, notices and approvals provided for hereunder shall be in writing and mailed or delivered to SLM ECFC or Funding, as the case may be, addressed as set forth in the Purchase Agreement or at such other address as either party may hereafter designate by notice to the other party.  Notice given in any such communication, mailed to SLM ECFC or Funding by appropriately addressed registered mail, shall be deemed to have been given on the day following the date of such mailing.
 
SECTION 16.    FORM OF INSTRUMENTS
 
All instruments and documents delivered in connection with these Master Terms and any Purchase Agreement, and all proceedings to be taken in connection with these Master Terms and any Purchase Agreement and the transactions contemplated herein and therein, shall be in a form as set forth in the attachments hereto, and Funding shall have received copies of such documents as it or its counsel shall reasonably request in connection therewith. Any instrument or document which is substantially in the same form as an attachment hereto or a recital herein will be deemed to be satisfactory as to form.
 
SECTION 17.    AMENDMENT
 
These Master Terms, any Purchase Agreement, any Bill of Sale and any document or instrument delivered in accordance herewith or therewith may be amended by the parties thereto without the consent of the related Noteholders (i) for the purpose of adding any provisions to or changing in any manner or eliminating any of the provisions in the related document or of modifying in any manner the rights of such Noteholders; provided that such action will not, in the opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee, materially and adversely affect the interest of any such Noteholder, or (ii) to correct any manifest error in the terms of the related document as compared to the terms expressly set forth in the Prospectus.
 
These Master Terms, any Purchase Agreement and any document or instrument delivered in accordance herewith or therewith may also be amended from time to time by SLM ECFC, the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee and Funding, with the consent of the Noteholders of Notes evidencing a majority of the Outstanding Amount of the Notes, for the purpose of adding any provisions to or changing in any manner or eliminating any of the provisions in the related document or of modifying in any manner the rights of the Noteholders; provided, however, that no such amendment shall (a) increase or reduce in any manner the amount of, or accelerate or delay the time of, collections of payments with respect to Purchased Loans or distributions that shall be required to be made for the benefit of the Noteholders or (b) reduce the aforesaid percentage of the Outstanding Amount of the Notes, the Noteholders of which are required to consent to any such amendment, without the consent of all outstanding Noteholders.
 
Promptly after the execution of any such amendment or consent (or, in the case of the Rating Agencies then rating the Notes, five Business Days prior thereto), the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee shall furnish written notification (such notice to be prepared by the Administrator) of the substance of such amendment or consent to the Indenture Trustee and each of the Rating Agencies then rating the Notes.
 
 
22

 
It shall not be necessary for the consent of Noteholders pursuant to this Section 17 to approve the particular form of any proposed amendment or consent, but it shall be sufficient if such consent shall approve the substance thereof.
 
Prior to the execution of any amendment to these Master Terms, the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee shall be entitled to receive and rely upon an Opinion of Counsel stating that execution of such amendment is authorized or permitted by these Master Terms and the Opinion of Counsel referred to in Section 7.1(i)(i) of the Administration Agreement.  The Interim Eligible Lender Trustee may, but shall not be obligated to, enter into any such amendment which affects the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee’s own rights, duties or immunities under these Master Terms or otherwise.
 
SECTION 18.    NONPETITION COVENANTS
 
Notwithstanding any prior termination of these Master Terms, SLM ECFC and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee shall not acquiesce, petition or otherwise invoke or cause Funding to invoke the process of any court or government authority for the purpose of commencing or sustaining a case against Funding under any federal or state bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law or appointing a receiver, liquidator, assignees, trustee, custodian, sequestrator or other similar official of Funding or any substantial part of its property, or ordering the winding up or liquidation of the affairs of Funding; provided, however, that nothing herein shall be deemed to prohibit the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee from filing a claim in, or otherwise participating in, any such action or proceeding.
 
SECTION 19.    GOVERNING LAW
 
These Master Terms and any Purchase Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York without reference to its conflict of law provisions, and the obligations, rights and remedies of the parties hereunder shall be determined in accordance with such laws.

Attachment A

INITIAL PURCHASE AGREEMENT
 
Dated as of August 15, 2013

PURCHASE AGREEMENT NUMBER 1
 
           Pursuant to the Master Terms (as defined below), SLM ECFC hereby offers for sale to each of Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as Interim Eligible Lender Trustee for the benefit of SLM Funding LLC (“Funding”) under the Interim Trust Agreement dated as of August 15, 2013 between Funding and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee, and Funding, the entire right, title and interest of SLM ECFC in the Loans described in the related Bill of Sale and related Loan Transmittal Summary Form incorporated herein and, to the extent indicated below, Funding and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee for the benefit of Funding accept SLM ECFC’s offer.  In order to qualify as Eligible Loans, no payment of principal of or interest on any such Loan shall be more than two hundred and ten (210) days past due as of the Statistical Cutoff Date.
 
 
TERMS, CONDITIONS AND COVENANTS
 
In consideration of the Purchase Price, SLM ECFC hereby sells to each of Funding and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee for the benefit of Funding the entire right, title and interest of SLM ECFC in the Loans accepted for purchase, subject to all the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement Master Securitization Terms Number 1000 (the “Master Terms”) and any amendments thereto, incorporated herein by reference, among SLM ECFC, Funding, and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee.  The Initial Payment for the Initial Loans shall be equal to the sum of (i) an amount payable to SLM ECFC in cash and (ii) the delivery of the Excess Distribution Certificate to SLM ECFC.  The amount payable to SLM ECFC in cash shall be specified in a certificate to be delivered on and dated the Closing Date.
 
This document shall constitute the Initial Purchase Agreement referred to in the Master Terms and, except as modified herein, each term used herein shall have the same meaning as in the Master Terms.  All references in the Master Terms to Loans, Eligible Loans, Initial Loans or Purchased Loans, as applicable, shall be deemed to refer to the Loans governed by this Initial Purchase Agreement.  SLM ECFC hereby makes all the representations and warranties set forth in Sections 5(A) and (B) of the Master Terms regarding the Initial Loans described in the Initial Bill of Sale and the related Loan Transmittal Summary Form, as of the Closing Date.
 
SLM ECFC authorizes the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee for the benefit of Funding to use a copy of the Initial Bill of Sale, including the Loan Transmittal Summary Form attached to the Initial Bill of Sale (in lieu of OE Form 1074), as official notification to the applicable Guarantors of assignment to the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee on behalf of Funding of the Initial Loans purchased pursuant hereto on the Closing Date.
 
The parties hereto intend that the transfer of Purchased Loans described in the Initial Bill of Sale and related Loan Transmittal Summary Form be, and be construed as, a valid sale of such Purchased Loans from SLM ECFC to Funding and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee for the benefit of Funding.  However, in the event that notwithstanding the intention of the parties, such transfer is deemed to be a transfer for security, then SLM ECFC hereby grants to Funding and the Interim Eligible Lender Trustee for the benefit of Funding a first priority security interest in and to all Purchased Loans described in the Initial Bill of Sale and related Loan Transmittal Summary Form to secure a loan in an amount equal to the Purchase Price of such Purchased Loans.
 

 

 

           IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this Purchase Agreement Number 1 to be duly executed by their respective officers hereunto duly authorized, as of the day and year first above written.
