Section 4.04    Target Overcollateralization Amount and Reserve Account Required Amount.  From time to time after the date hereof, the Servicer may notify each Rating Agency that it wishes to apply a formula for determining the Target Overcollateralization Amount or the Reserve Account Required Amount that is different from the formula described in the related definition, or change the manner by which the Reserve Account is funded. If the Servicer provides such notice in writing to each Rating Agency and the Rating Agency Condition is satisfied with respect to the application of such formula or change and the Servicer delivers an Officer’s Certificate to the Indenture Trustee to the effect that the Issuer has not received written notice from any Rating Agency that the application of such formula or such change will result in a reduction, withdrawal or down-grade of the then-current rating of each class of Notes (upon receipt of which Officer’s Certificate the Indenture Trustee shall have no obligation to verify the content thereof and no liability as a result of its reliance thereon), then the Target Overcollateralization Amount or the Reserve Account Required Amount, as applicable, will be determined in accordance with the new formula or, if applicable, the manner in which the Reserve Account is funded will change accordingly.

Section 4.05    Maintenance of Security Interests in Financed Vehicles.  The Servicer shall, in accordance with its customary servicing procedures, take such steps as are necessary to maintain perfection of the security interest created by each Receivable in the related Financed Vehicle.  The provisions set forth in this Section are the sole requirements under the Basic Documents with respect to the maintenance of collateral or security on the Receivables.  It is understood that the Financed Vehicles are the collateral and security for the Receivables, but that the certificate of title with respect to a Financed Vehicle does not constitute collateral and merely evidences such security interest.  The Servicer is hereby authorized to take such steps as are necessary to re-perfect such security interest on behalf of the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee in the event of the relocation of a Financed Vehicle, or for any other reason.  In the event that the assignment of a Receivable to the Issuer is insufficient, without a notation on the related Financed Vehicle’s certificate of title, or without fulfilling any additional administrative requirements under the laws of the state in which such Financed Vehicle is located, to perfect a security interest in the related Financed Vehicle in favor of the Issuer, the Servicer hereby agrees that the designation of HCA as the secured party on the certificate of title is in its capacity as agent of the Issuer.

Section 4.06    Covenants of Servicer.  By its execution and delivery of this Agreement, the Servicer hereby covenants as follows (upon which covenants the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Owner Trustee rely in accepting the Receivables and delivering the applicable Securities):

(a)  Liens in Force.  The Servicer will not release the Financed Vehicle securing any Receivable from the security interest granted by such Receivable in whole or in part except (i) in the event of payment in full by or on behalf of the Obligor thereunder or payment in full less a deficiency which the Servicer would not attempt to collect in accordance with its customary servicing practices, (ii) in connection with repossession and sale of the Financed Vehicle or (iii) as may be required by an insurer in order to receive proceeds from any Insurance Policy covering such Financed Vehicle;

(b)  No Impairment.  The Servicer shall do nothing to impair the rights of the Trust in the property of the Trust;

(c)  No Amendments.  The Servicer shall (i) not extend the date for final payment by the Obligor of any Receivable beyond the last day of the Collection Period prior to the Class A-4 Maturity Date; or (ii) reduce the APR or unpaid principal balance with respect to any Receivable other than as required by applicable law.

(d)  Safekeeping.  The Servicer, in its capacity as custodian, shall hold, or cause its agent to hold, the Receivable Files for the benefit of the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee in accordance with its customary servicing practices.

Section 4.07    Purchase of Receivables Upon Breach.  Upon discovery by any party hereto of a breach of any of the covenants set forth in Sections 4.02, 4.03, 4.05 or 4.06 which materially and adversely affects the interests of the Issuer or the Noteholders, the party discovering such breach shall give prompt written notice thereof to the other parties hereto; provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect any obligation of the Servicer under this Section 4.07.  If the Servicer does not correct or cure such breach prior to the end of the Collection Period which includes the 60th day (or, if the Servicer elects, an earlier date) after the date that the Servicer became aware or was notified of such breach, then the Servicer shall purchase any Receivable materially and adversely affected by such breach from the Issuer on the Payment Date following the end of such Collection Period.  Any such purchase by the Servicer shall be at a price equal to the Purchased Amount.  In consideration for such repurchase, the Servicer shall make (or shall cause to be made) a payment to the Issuer equal to the Purchased Amount by depositing such amount into the Collection Account in accordance with Section 5.04 on such Payment Date.  Upon payment of such Purchased Amount by the Servicer, the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee shall release and shall execute and deliver such instruments of release, transfer or assignment, in each case without recourse or representation, as shall be reasonably necessary to vest in the Servicer or its designee any Receivable repurchased pursuant hereto.  It is understood and agreed that the obligation of the Servicer to purchase any Receivable as described above shall constitute the sole remedy respecting such breach available to the Issuer, the Owner Trustee, the Certificateholders, the Noteholders and the Indenture Trustee.

 
23

 

Section 4.08    Servicing Fee.  The Servicing Fee shall be payable to the Servicer on each Payment Date.  The Servicing Fee shall be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year comprised of twelve 30-day months.  In addition, the Servicer will be entitled to retain all late fees, extension fees, non-sufficient funds charges and any and all other administrative fees and expenses or similar charges allowed by applicable law with respect to any Receivable.  The Servicer also will be entitled to receive investment earnings (net of investment losses and expenses) on funds deposited in the Collection Account during each Collection Period.  The Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its activities under this Agreement (including taxes imposed on the Servicer and expenses incurred in connection with distributions and reports made by the Servicer to the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee).  The Servicer shall be required to pay all of the Indenture Trustee’s fees, expenses, reimbursements and indemnifications.

Section 4.09    Servicer’s Certificate.  The Servicer shall prepare and deliver to the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee, and the Depositor, with a copy to each Rating Agency, on or before the second Business Day prior to each Payment Date a Servicer’s Certificate containing all information necessary to make the distributions to be made on the related Payment Date pursuant to Section 5.05 for the related Collection Period and such Servicer’s Certificate shall be certified by a Responsible Officer of the Servicer to the effect that the information provided is complete and no Servicer Termination Events have occurred.  If any defaults have occurred, such Servicer’s Certificate will provide an explanation of such Servicer Termination Events.  Receivables to be purchased by the Servicer or to be repurchased by the Seller and each Receivable that became a Liquidated Receivable shall be identified by the Servicer by account number with respect to such Receivable (as specified in the applicable Schedule of Receivables).  At the sole option of the Servicer, each Servicer’s Certificate may be delivered in electronic or hard copy format.

Section 4.10    Annual Statement as to Compliance, Notice of Servicer Termination Event.

(a)  The Servicer shall deliver to the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee, and each Rating Agency, within 120 days after the end of the Servicer’s fiscal year (or, in the case of the first such certificate, not later than April 30, 2010), an Officer’s Certificate signed by a Responsible Officer of the Servicer, stating that (i) a review of the activities of the Servicer during the preceding 12-month period (or such shorter period in the case of the first such Officer’s Certificate) and of the performance of its obligations under this Agreement has been made under such officer’s supervision and (ii) to such officer’s knowledge, based on such review, the Servicer has fulfilled all its obligations under this Agreement throughout such period or, if there has been a default in the fulfillment of any such obligation, specifying each such default known to such officer and the nature and status thereof.

(b)  The Servicer shall deliver to the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee, and each Rating Agency, promptly after having obtained knowledge thereof, written notice in an Officer’s Certificate of any event that with the giving of notice or lapse of time or both would become a Servicer Termination Event under Section 8.01.  Except to the extent set forth in this Section 4.10(b) and Sections 4.09 and 8.04 of this Agreement and Sections 3.07, 3.19 and 5.01 of the Indenture, the Basic Documents do not require any policies or procedures to monitor any performance or other triggers and events of default.

 
24

 

Section 4.11    Compliance with Regulation AB.  The Servicer agrees to perform all duties and obligations applicable to or required of the Issuer set forth in Appendix A attached hereto and made a part hereof in all respects and makes the representations and warranties therein applicable to it.

Section 4.12    Access to Certain Documentation and Information Regarding Receivables.  The Servicer shall provide to representatives of the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee and the Certificateholders reasonable access to the documentation regarding the Receivables and the related Trust property.  The Servicer will provide such access to any Noteholder only in such cases where the Servicer shall be required by applicable statutes or regulations to permit a Noteholder to review such documentation.  In each case, access shall be afforded without charge, but only upon reasonable request and during the normal business hours at the offices of the Servicer.  Nothing in this Section shall affect the obligation of the Servicer to observe any applicable law prohibiting disclosure of information regarding the Obligors and the failure of the Servicer to provide access to information as a result of such obligation shall not constitute a breach of this Section.

Section 4.13    Term of Servicer.  The Servicer hereby covenants and agrees to act as Servicer under, and for the term of, this Agreement, subject to the provisions of Sections 7.03 and 7.06.

Section 4.14    Annual Independent Accountants’ Report.  For so long as the Issuer is subject to the reporting requirements under the Exchange Act, the Servicer shall cause a firm of independent certified public accountants, which may also render other services to the Servicer or its Affiliates, to deliver to the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee, and each Rating Agency, within 120 days after the end of each fiscal year (or, in the case of the first such report, not later than April 30, 2010), a report addressed to the Board of Directors of the Servicer, the Owner Trustee, and the Indenture Trustee, to the effect that such firm has audited the books and records of the Servicer and issued its report thereon and that (a) such audit was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and accordingly included such tests of the accounting records and such other auditing procedures as such firm considered necessary in the circumstances and (b) the firm is independent of the Depositor and the Servicer within the meaning of the Code of Professional Ethics of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Section 4.15    Reports to the Commission.  The Servicer shall, or shall cause the Depositor to, on behalf of the Issuer, execute and cause to be filed with the Commission any periodic reports required to be filed with respect to the issuance of the Notes under the provisions of the Exchange Act, and the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder.  The Depositor shall, at its expense, cooperate in any reasonable request made by the Servicer in connection with such filings.

(a)  pay the Indenture Trustee (and any separate trustee or co-trustee appointed pursuant to Section 6.10 of the Indenture (a “Separate Trustee”)) from time to time reasonable compensation for all services rendered by the Indenture Trustee or Separate Trustee, as the case may be, under the Indenture (which compensation shall not be limited by any provision of law in regard to the compensation of a trustee of an express trust);

(b)  except as otherwise expressly provided in the Indenture, reimburse the Indenture Trustee or any Separate Trustee upon its request for all reasonable expenses, disbursements and advances incurred or made by the Indenture Trustee or Separate Trustee, as the case may be, in accordance with any provision of the Indenture (including the reasonable compensation, expenses and disbursements of its agents and counsel), except any such expense, disbursement or advance as may be attributable to its negligence or bad faith;

ARTICLE V.

DISTRIBUTIONS; STATEMENTS TO SECURITYHOLDERS


(a)  (i)  On or prior to the Closing Date, the Servicer shall establish, or cause to be established, an account with and in the name of the Indenture Trustee (the “Collection Account”), which shall be maintained as an Eligible Account and shall bear a designation clearly indicating that the amounts deposited thereto are held for the benefit of the Noteholders.

(ii)  The Issuer, for the benefit of the Noteholders, shall cause the Servicer to establish with and maintain in the name of the Indenture Trustee an Eligible Account (including the subaccounts referred to in clause (iv) below, the “Note Distribution Account”), bearing a designation clearly indicating that the funds deposited therein are held for the benefit of the Noteholders.
 
(iii)  The Issuer, for the benefit of the Noteholders, shall cause the Servicer to establish with and maintain in the name of the Indenture Trustee an Eligible Account (the “Reserve Account”), bearing a designation clearly indicating that the funds deposited therein are held for the benefit of the Noteholders.

 
26

 

(iv)  The Issuer shall also cause to be established two administrative subaccounts within the Note Distribution Account, which subaccounts shall be designated the “Interest Distribution Account” and the ”Principal Distribution Account”, respectively.  The Interest Distribution Account and the Principal Distribution Account are established and maintained solely for administrative purposes.

(v)  Funds on deposit in the Reserve Account, shall be invested by the Indenture Trustee in Eligible Investments selected in writing by the Servicer; provided, however, that if the Servicer fails to select any Eligible Investment, such funds shall remain uninvested.  All such Eligible Investments shall be held by the Indenture Trustee for the benefit of the Noteholders and/or the Certificateholders, as applicable.  Unless the Rating Agency Condition is satisfied with respect to different investments, funds on deposit in the Reserve Account shall be invested in Eligible Investments that will mature so that such funds will be available on the next Payment Date.  Funds deposited in the Reserve Account, upon the maturity of any Eligible Investments on a day which immediately precedes a Payment Date, are not required to be invested overnight.

(vi)  Funds on deposit in the Collection Account shall be invested by the Indenture Trustee in Eligible Investments selected in writing by the Servicer; provided, however, that if the Servicer fails to select any Eligible Investments, such funds shall remain uninvested.  All such Eligible Investments shall be held by the Indenture Trustee for the benefit of the Noteholders and/or the Certificateholders, as applicable.  Unless the Rating Agency Condition is satisfied with respect to different investments, funds on deposit in the Collection Account shall be invested in Eligible Investments that will mature so that such funds will be available on the next Payment Date.  Investment earnings on funds deposited in the Collection Account, net of losses and investment expenses, shall be released to the Servicer on each Payment Date and shall be the property of the Servicer.

(b)  (i)  Except as otherwise provided herein, the Indenture Trustee shall possess all right, title and interest in all funds received and all funds on deposit from time to time in the Trust Accounts and in all proceeds thereof.  The Trust Accounts shall be under the sole dominion and control of the Indenture Trustee for the benefit of the Noteholders and the Certificateholders, as the case may be.  If, at any time, a Trust Account ceases to be an Eligible Account, the Indenture Trustee (or the Servicer on its behalf) shall within ten (10) Business Days (or such longer period, not to exceed 15 calendar days, as to which the Rating Agency Condition is satisfied) establish a new Trust Account as an Eligible Account and shall transfer any cash or any investments from the account that is no longer an Eligible Account to the Trust Account.  Neither the Servicer nor the Indenture Trustee shall in any way be held liable by reason of any insufficiency in any Trust Account resulting from any investment loss in any Eligible Investment.

 
27

 

(ii)  The Servicer shall have the power, revocable by the Indenture Trustee or by the Owner Trustee with the consent of the Indenture Trustee, to instruct the Indenture Trustee in writing to make withdrawals and payments from the Trust Accounts and the Certificate Deposit Account for the purpose of withdrawing any amounts deposited in error into such accounts.

(c)  Except for the Collection Account, the Note Distribution Account, the Interest Distribution Account, the Principal Distribution Account and the Reserve Account,  there are no accounts required to be maintained under the Basic Documents. No checks shall be issued, printed or honored with respect to the Collection Account, the Note Distribution Account, the Interest Distribution Account, the Principal Distribution Account or the Reserve Account.

Section 5.02    Application of Collections.  All payments received from or on behalf of an Obligor during each Collection Period with respect to each Receivable (other than a Purchased Receivable) shall be applied to interest and principal in accordance with the Simple Interest Method.  The Servicer shall make all deposits of Collections and other Available Amounts received into the Collection Account on the second Business Day following receipt thereof.  However, so long as the Monthly Remittance Condition is satisfied, the Servicer may retain such amounts received during a Collection Period until one Business Day prior to the related Payment Date.  The “Monthly Remittance Condition” shall be deemed to be satisfied if (i) HCA or one of its Affiliates is the Servicer, (ii) no Servicer Termination Event has occurred and is continuing and (iii) HCA has a short-term debt rating of at least “F1+” from Fitch and “A-1” from Standard & Poor’s.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Servicer may remit Collections to the Collection Account on any other alternate remittance schedule (but not later than the Business Day prior to the related Payment Date) if the Rating Agency Condition is satisfied with respect to such alternate remittance schedule. Pending deposit into the Collection Account, Collections may be commingled and used by the Servicer at its own risk and are not required to be segregated from its own funds.

Section 5.03    Property of the Trust.  All payments and other proceeds of any type and from any source on or with respect to the Receivables shall be the property of the Trust, subject to the Lien of the Indenture and the rights of the Indenture Trustee thereunder.

Section 5.04    Purchased Amounts.  The Servicer or the Seller shall deposit or cause to be deposited in the Collection Account, on the Business Day preceding each Payment Date, the aggregate Purchased Amount with respect to Purchased Receivables and the Servicer shall deposit therein all amounts to be paid under Section 4.07.  Notice of this amount shall be provided in writing by the applicable party to the Indenture Trustee.

(i)  to the Servicer, the Servicing Fee, including any unpaid Servicing Fees with respect to one or more prior Collection Periods, and Advances not previously reimbursed to the Servicer;

(ii)  to the Interest Distribution Account, (a) the aggregate amount of interest accrued for the related Interest Period on each of the Notes at their respective interest rates on the principal outstanding as of the previous Payment Date after giving effect to all payments of principal to the Noteholders on the preceding Payment Date; and (b) the excess, if any, of the amount of interest payable to the Noteholders on those prior Payment Dates over the amounts actually paid to the Noteholders on those prior Payment Dates, plus interest on any such shortfall at their respective interest rates to the extent permitted by law;

(iii)  to the Principal Distribution Account, the Principal Distribution Amount;

(iv)  to the Reserve Account, from Available Amounts remaining, the amount, if any, necessary to cause the amount on deposit in that account to equal the Reserve Account Required Amount;

(v)  to the Indenture Trustee and the Owner Trustee, any reimbursements, expenses and indemnification amounts, in each case to the extent such reimbursements, expenses and indemnification amounts have not been previously paid by the Servicer and to the Securities Intermediary, any accrued and unpaid indemnification expenses owed to it; and

(vi)  any Available Amounts remaining, if any, to the Owner Trustee or its agent, for deposit into the Certificate Distribution Account (as defined in the Trust Agreement) and subsequent distribution to the Certificateholder pursuant to Section 5.01 of the Trust Agreement.

Section 5.06    Reserve Account.

(a)  On or prior to the Closing Date, the Issuer shall cause to be deposited an amount equal to the Reserve Account Deposit into the Reserve Account from the net proceeds of the sale of the Notes.  The Reserve Account shall be an asset of the Issuer.

(b)  In the event that the Servicer’s Certificate states that there is an Available Amounts Shortfall, then the Indenture Trustee shall, upon written directions from the Servicer, withdraw the Reserve Account Withdrawal Amount from the Reserve Account and deposit such Reserve Account Withdrawal Amount into the Collection Account no later than 12:00 noon, New York City time, on the Business Day prior to the related Payment Date.

 
29

 

(c)  In the event that the amount on deposit in the Reserve Account (after giving effect to all deposits thereto and withdrawals therefrom on such Business Day on a Payment Date) is greater than the Reserve Account Required Amount on any Payment Date, the Indenture Trustee shall distribute, upon written directions from the Servicer, all such amounts to the Certificateholder as per the monthly Servicer’s Certificate.  Upon any such distribution to the Certificateholder, the Noteholders shall have no further rights in, or claims to, such amounts.

(d)  In the event that on any Payment Date the amount on deposit in the Reserve Account shall be less than the Reserve Account Required Amount, the Available Amounts remaining after the payment of the amounts set forth in Section 5.05(b)(i) through (iii), up to an amount equal to such shortfall, shall be deposited by the Indenture Trustee, upon written directions from the Servicer, to the Reserve Account on such Payment Date.

(e)  Subject to Section 9.01, amounts will continue to be applied pursuant to Section 5.05 following the payment in full of the Outstanding Amount of Notes until the Pool Balance is reduced to zero.  Following the payment in full of the aggregate Outstanding Amount of the Notes and the Certificates and of all other amounts owing or to be distributed hereunder or under the Indenture or the Trust Agreement to the Noteholders and the termination of the Trust, any amount then allocated to the Reserve Account shall be distributed to the Depositor.

Section 5.07    Statements to Securityholders.  On or before the second Business Day prior to each Payment Date, the Servicer shall provide to the Indenture Trustee (with a copy to each Rating Agency) for the Indenture Trustee to make available to each Noteholder of record as of the most recent Record Date and to the Owner Trustee for the Owner Trustee to forward to each Certificateholder of record as of the most recent Record Date a statement substantially in the form of Exhibit B.

No disbursements shall be made directly by the Servicer to a Noteholder, and the Servicer shall not be required to maintain any investor record relating to the posting of disbursements or otherwise.

The Indenture Trustee may make any such statement which it is required to provide to the Noteholders, including, without limitation, all information as may be required to enable each Noteholder to prepare its respective federal and state income tax returns (and, at its option, any additional files containing the same information in an alternative format), via its internet web site (initially located at www.sf.citidirect.com).  In connection with providing access to the Indenture Trustee’s website, the Indenture Trustee may require registration and the acceptance of certain terms and conditions.  The Indenture Trustee shall have the right to change the way such statements are distributed in order to make such distributions more convenient and/or more accessible to the above parties and the Indenture Trustee shall provide timely and adequate notification to the Noteholders regarding any such changes; provided, however, that the Indenture Trustee will also mail copies of any such statements to any requesting Noteholder who provides a written request.

(d)  The Servicer shall compensate and indemnify the Indenture Trustee to the extent provided in Section 6.07 of the Indenture.

For purposes of this Section, in the event of the termination of the rights and obligations of HCA (or any successor thereto pursuant to Section 7.03) as Servicer pursuant to Section 8.02, or the resignation by such Servicer pursuant to this Agreement, such Servicer shall be deemed to be the Servicer pending appointment of a successor Servicer (other than the Indenture Trustee) pursuant to Section 8.03.

Indemnification under this Section shall survive the resignation or removal of the Servicer or the termination of this Agreement, and shall include reasonable fees and expenses of counsel and reasonable expenses of litigation.  If the Servicer shall have made any indemnity payments pursuant to this Section and the Person to or on behalf of whom such payments are made thereafter collects any of such amounts from others, such Person shall promptly repay such amounts to the Servicer, without interest.  The Servicer shall pay all amounts due, pursuant to this Section, with respect to the Indenture Trustee and Owner Trustee as set forth in Section 5.05(b)(v).

Section 7.06    Servicer Not to Resign.

(a)  Subject to the provisions of Section 7.03, the Servicer shall not resign from the obligations and duties imposed on it by this Agreement as Servicer except upon a determination that the performance of its duties under this Agreement shall no longer be permissible under applicable law.

(c)  The occurrence of an Insolvency Event with respect to the Servicer.

provided, however, that a delay or failure of performance referred to under clauses (a) above for a period of 10 days or clause (b) above for a period of 30 days will not constitute a Servicer Termination Event if such delay or failure was caused by force majeure or other similar occurrence.

Section 8.03    Appointment of Successor Servicer.

(a)  On and after the time the Servicer receives a notice of termination pursuant to Section 8.02 or upon the resignation of the Servicer pursuant to Section 7.06, the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders evidencing more than 50% of the voting interests of the Notes shall appoint a successor Servicer which shall be the successor in all respects to the Servicer in its capacity as Servicer under this Agreement and shall be subject to all the rights, responsibilities, restrictions, duties, liabilities and termination provisions relating to the Servicer under this Agreement, except as otherwise stated herein.  The Depositor, the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee and such successor Servicer shall take such action, consistent with this Agreement, as shall be necessary to effectuate any such succession.  In the event that the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders are unable to appoint a successor within thirty (30) days of the date of the related notice of termination, the Indenture Trustee may petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint a successor Servicer.  If a successor Servicer is acting as Servicer hereunder, it shall be subject to termination under Section 8.02 upon the occurrence of any Servicer Termination Event after its appointment as successor Servicer.  The original Servicer shall pay any and all fees and expenses incurred as a result of a transfer of servicing.

(c)  Upon appointment, the successor Servicer shall be the successor in all respects to the predecessor Servicer and shall be subject to all the responsibilities, duties and liabilities arising thereafter relating thereto placed on the predecessor Servicer, and shall be entitled to the Servicing Fee and all the rights granted to the predecessor Servicer by the terms and provisions of this Agreement.

Section 8.04    Notification to Securityholders.  Upon any termination of, or appointment of a successor to, the Servicer pursuant to this Article VIII, the Administrator shall give prompt written notice thereof to the Certificateholders, and the Indenture Trustee shall give prompt written notice thereof to the Noteholders and each Rating Agency.

Section 8.05    Waiver of Past Defaults. The Noteholders evidencing more than 50% of the voting interests of the Notes may, on behalf of all Securityholders, waive in writing any default by the Servicer in the performance of its obligations hereunder and its consequences, except a default in making any required deposits to or payments from any of the Trust Accounts in accordance with this Agreement.  Upon any such waiver of a past default, such default shall cease to exist, and any Servicer Termination Event arising therefrom shall be deemed to have been remedied for every purpose of this Agreement.  No such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other default or impair any right consequent thereto.

ARTICLE IX.

TERMINATION

Section 9.01    Optional Purchase of All Receivables.

(a)  On each Determination Date as of which the Pool Balance is equal to or less than 5% of the Initial Pool Balance, the Servicer shall have the option to purchase the Receivables.  To exercise such option, the Servicer shall deposit to the Collection Account pursuant to Section 5.04 an amount equal to the aggregate Purchased Amount for the Receivables and shall succeed to all interests in and to the Receivables.  The exercise of such option shall effect a redemption, in whole but not in part, of all outstanding Notes.

(b)  As described in Article IX of the Trust Agreement, notice of any termination of the Trust shall be given by the Servicer to the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee as soon as practicable after the Servicer has received notice thereof.
