(b) The Receivables existing in the Accounts as of the Cut-Off Time and thereafter arising in the Accounts on or prior to the Closing Date, and the related Purchased Assets, shall be and hereby are sold by Seller and purchased by Purchaser on the Closing Date.

(c) Seller shall record and file, at its own expense, any financing statements (and amendments with respect to such financing statements when applicable) with respect to the Purchased Assets meeting the requirements of applicable law in such manner and in such jurisdictions as are necessary to perfect, and maintain the perfection of, the Conveyance of such Purchased Assets from Seller to Purchaser.

(d) Seller shall, at its own expense, (i) on or prior to the Closing Date, indicate in its books and records that the Purchased Assets have been conveyed to Purchaser in accordance with this Agreement and (ii) on or prior to the Closing Date, deliver to Purchaser an Account Schedule.

Section 3.01. Purchase Price.

(a) The “Closing Purchase Price” for the Receivables and the related Purchased Assets conveyed to Purchaser under this Agreement on the Closing Date shall be payable on the Closing Date and shall be an amount equal to the sum of the amounts paid by Seller to purchase such Receivables pursuant to the Sale and Purchase Agreement. The “Purchase Price” for the Receivables and the related Purchased Assets to be conveyed to Purchaser under this Agreement after the Closing Date shall be an amount equal to 100% of the aggregate balance of the Principal Receivables so conveyed, adjusted to reflect such factors as Purchaser and Seller mutually agree will result in a Purchase Price determined to be the fair market value of such property. The Closing Purchase Price for the Receivables arising in the Accounts on or before the Closing Date and the related Purchased Assets shall be paid on the Closing Date, and the Purchase Price for all other Receivables and the related Purchased Assets, shall be payable on the Business Day following the day on which such Receivables and the related Purchased Assets are conveyed by Seller to Purchaser; provided, however, the Purchase Price for the Receivables arising in the Accounts after the Closing Date and on or before April 12, 2007 shall be payable as soon as Purchaser receives sufficient Collections to pay therefor but in any case by May 15, 2007. The Closing Purchase Price and the Purchase Price shall be paid in cash.

(b) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, Seller shall not be obligated to sell Receivables or other Purchased Assets to Purchaser to the extent that Seller is not paid the Closing Purchase Price or the Purchase Price therefor as provided herein.

Section 3.02. Adjustments to Purchase Price.

(a) Upon final determination of the Signing Statement, the Closing Purchase Price shall be adjusted to reflect net daily cash settlements of cash receipts and cash disbursements with regard to the Accounts for the period between the Valuation Date and the Closing Date as reflected on the Signing Statement. Seller shall pay Purchaser, or Purchaser shall pay Seller, as the case may be, the aggregate amount reflected on the Signing Statement as the adjustment to the Closing Purchase Price (the “Purchase Price Adjustment”). Such payment shall be remitted no later than the fifth (5th) Business Day after the Signing Statement has been agreed to by Seller and Purchaser to an account designated by the party to which payment is due.

(b) The Closing Purchase Price shall also be adjusted due to the occurrence of any of the following events:

(i) If the Account Owner is debited by VISA after the Cut-Off Time for a chargeback in respect of which the Account Owner provided an Obligor with a credit on an Account prior to the Cut-Off Time and such debit has not been included in the Closing Purchase Price or any Purchase Price Adjustment then Purchaser agrees to pay to Seller an amount equal to (a) 88%, in the case of an Account with a “B” designation on the Account Schedule and (b) 21.5%, in the case of an Account with a “C” designation on the Signing Statement, in each case multiplied by the amount of such debit by VISA.

 

11


(ii) If a check from a Obligor in payment of amounts owed on an Account, which was credited to such Account prior to the Cut-Off Time, is returned unpaid by the drawee after the Cut-Off Time and such return payment has not been included in the Closing Purchase Price or any Purchase Price Adjustment) then Purchaser agrees to pay to Seller an amount equal to (a) 88%, in the case of an Account with a “B” designation on the Signing Statement and (b) 21.5%, in the case of an Account with a “C” designation on the Signing Statement, in each case multiplied by the amount of such returned check.

(iii) If Purchaser, the Account Owner or the Servicer provides a credit on an Account pursuant to the Policies and Procedures or the policies and procedures of the Account Owner, as applicable, in compliance with all Requirements of Law, with respect to the use of an Account by a person other than the Obligor who did not have actual, implied or apparent authority for such use and from which the Obligor received no benefit prior to the Cut-Off Time, then Seller agrees to pay to Purchaser (a) 88%, in the case of an Account with a “B” designation on the Signing Statement and (b) 21.5%, in the case of an Account with a “C” designation on the Signing Statement, in each case multiplied by the amount of such credit, provided that if such credit is reversed then Purchaser agrees to repay to Seller the amount paid by Seller with respect to such credit.

(iv) If an amount received by the Account Owner prior to the Cut-Off Time and held in a suspense account at the Cut-Off Time is identified after the Cut-off Time as a payment which should have been posted to an Account, then Seller agrees to pay to Purchaser (a) 88%, in the case of an Account with a “B” designation on the Signing Statement and (b) 21.5%, in the case of an Account with a “C” designation on the Signing Statement, in each case multiplied by the amount of such credit.

Each of the amounts determined above may be netted together to result in either a net amount due to Seller or a net amount due to Purchaser. Any party with knowledge of any facts relating to any event described in this Section 3.2(b) shall provide, or cause to be provided, to the other party written notice and supporting documentation (to the extent available to such party) in a monthly request. Seller or Purchaser, as the case may be, shall, within five (5) Business Days after receipt of such monthly request, reimburse the other party, in immediately available funds, for the amount of said adjustment Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties agree that this Section 3.2(b) shall be implemented fairly and equitably so as to avoid the double payment or failure to pay any amount which would result in the unjust enrichment of any party pursuant to the terms hereof.

(c) The Purchase Price shall be reduced on the second Business Day of each calendar month (a “Credit Adjustment”) with respect to any Receivable previously conveyed to Purchaser by Seller which has since been reduced by Seller or the Servicer because of a rebate, refund, unauthorized charge or billing error to an Obligor or because such Receivable was created in respect of merchandise which was refused or returned by an Obligor. The amount of such reduction shall equal the reduction in the balance of such Receivable resulting from the occurrence of such event. In the event that a reduction pursuant to this Section 3.02(d) causes the Purchase Price to be a negative number, Seller agrees that, not later than 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on such date, Seller shall pay to Purchaser cash in an amount equal to the amount by which the Credit Adjustment exceeds the unadjusted Purchase Price.
