PRELIMINARY STATEMENTS. Certain terms that are capitalized and used throughout this Agreement are defined in Exhibit I. References in the Exhibits hereto to the “Agreement” refer to this Agreement.
The Seller desires to sell, transfer and assign an undivided variable percentage interest in a pool of receivables, and the Issuer desires to acquire such undivided variable percentage interest, as such percentage interest shall be adjusted from time to time based upon, in part, reinvestment payments that are made by the Issuer.
In consideration of the mutual agreements, provisions and covenants contained herein, the parties hereto agree as follows:
ARTICLE I
AMOUNTS AND TERMS OF THE PURCHASES
Section 1.1    Purchase Facility. (a) On the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth, the Issuer hereby agrees to purchase, and make reinvestments of, undivided percentage ownership interests with regard to the Purchased Interest from the Seller from time to time from December 4, 2001 to the Facility Termination Date. Under no circumstances shall the Issuer make any such purchase or reinvestment if, after giving effect to such purchase or reinvestment, the aggregate outstanding Capital of the Purchased Interest would exceed the Purchase Limit.
(b)    The Seller may, upon at least 60 days’ written notice to the Administrator, terminate the Purchase Facility provided in this Section in whole or, upon at least 30 days’ written notice to the Administrator, from time to time, irrevocably reduce in part the unused portion of the Purchase Limit; provided, that, so long as the Credit Agreement is in effect, the Seller’s right to terminate the Purchase Facility in whole pursuant to this Section 1.1(b) is conditioned upon the Seller exercising its option to repurchase in full (but not in part) the Purchased Interest in accordance with the terms of Section 5.14; provided, further, that each partial reduction shall be in the amount of at least $5,000,000, or an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof, and that, unless terminated in whole, the Purchase Limit shall in no event be reduced below $20,000,000.
Section 1.2    Making Purchases. (a) Each purchase (but not reinvestment) of undivided percentage ownership interests with regard to the Purchased Interest hereunder shall be made upon the Seller’s irrevocable written notice in the form of Annex B (the “Purchase Notice”) delivered to the Administrator in accordance with Section 5.2 (which notice must be received by the





Administrator before 11:00 a.m., New York City time) at least “(x) one Business Day before the requested purchase date in the case of a purchase of less than $50,000,000 and (y) two Business Days before the requested purchase date in the case of a purchase of at least $50,000,000, which notice in each case shall specify: (A) the amount requested to be paid to the Seller (such amount, which shall not be less than $1,000,000 and shall be in integral multiples of $100,000, being the Capital relating to the undivided percentage ownership interest then being purchased), (B) the date of such purchase (which shall be a Business Day), and (C) the pro forma calculation of the Purchased Interest after giving effect to the increase in Capital.
(b)    On the date of each purchase (but not reinvestment) of undivided percentage ownership interests with regard to the Purchased Interest hereunder, the Issuer shall, upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions set forth in Exhibit II, make available to the Seller in same day funds, at Mellon Bank, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, account number XXXXX, ABA# XXXXXXX, an amount equal to the Capital relating to the undivided percentage ownership interest then being purchased as set forth in the applicable Purchase Notice.
(c)    Effective on the date of each purchase pursuant to this Section and each reinvestment pursuant to Section 1.4, the Seller hereby sells and assigns to the Issuer an undivided percentage ownership interest in: (i) each Pool Receivable then existing, (ii) all Related Security with respect to such Pool Receivables, and (iii) all Collections with respect to, and other proceeds of, such Pool Receivables and Related Security.
(d)    To secure all of the Seller’s obligations (monetary or otherwise) under this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which it is a party, whether now or hereafter existing or arising, due or to become due, direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, the Seller hereby grants to the Issuer a security interest in all of the Seller’s right, title and interest (including any undivided interest of the Seller) in, to and under all of the following, whether now or hereafter owned, existing or arising: (i) all Pool Receivables, (ii) all Related Security with respect to such Pool Receivables, (iii) all Collections with respect to, and other proceeds of, such Pool Receivables and Related Security, (iv) the Lock-Box Accounts (and the related lock-boxes) and all amounts on deposit therein, and all certificates and instruments, if any, from time to time evidencing such Lock-Box Accounts (and such related lock-boxes) and such amounts on deposit therein, (v) all books and records of each Receivable, and all rights, remedies, powers and privileges of the Seller in any accounts into which Collections are or may be received and all rights (but none of the obligations) of the Seller under the Purchase and Sale Agreement and (vi) all proceeds and products of, and all amounts received or receivable under any or all of, the foregoing (collectively, the “Pool Assets”). The Issuer shall have, with respect to the Pool Assets, and in addition to all the other rights and remedies available to the Issuer, all the rights and remedies of a secured party under any applicable UCC. In connection with the transfer of the undivided interest set forth in Section 1.2(c) or the grant of the security interest in the Pool Assets set forth in this Section 1.2(d), by signing this Agreement in the space provided, the Seller hereby authorizes the filing of all applicable UCC financing statements in all necessary jurisdictions.
Section 1.3    Purchased Interest Computation. The Purchased Interest shall be initially computed on the date of the initial purchase hereunder. Thereafter, until the Facility Termination

 
2
 




Date, the Purchased Interest shall be automatically recomputed (or deemed to be recomputed) on each Business Day other than a Termination Day. From and after the occurrence of any Termination Day, the Purchased Interest shall (until the event(s) giving rise to such Termination Day are satisfied or are waived by the Administrator or the happening of the events set forth in the next sentence) be deemed to be 100%. The Purchased Interest shall become zero when the Capital thereof and Discount thereon shall have been paid in full, all the amounts owed by the Seller and required to be deposited by the Servicer hereunder to the Issuer, the Administrator and any other Indemnified Party or Affected Person are paid in full, and the Servicer shall have received the accrued Servicing Fee thereon.
Section 1.4    Settlement Procedures. (a) The collection of the Pool Receivables shall be administered by the Servicer in accordance with this Agreement. The Seller shall provide to the Servicer on a timely basis all information needed for such administration, including notice of the occurrence of any Termination Day and current computations of the Purchased Interest.
(b)    The Servicer shall, on each day on which Collections of Pool Receivables are received (or deemed received) by the Seller or the Servicer:
(i)    set aside and hold in trust (and shall, at the request of the Administrator, segregate in a separate account approved by the Administrator) for the Issuer, out of the Issuer’s Share of such Collections, first, an amount equal to the Discount accrued through such day for each Portion of Capital and not previously set aside, second, an amount equal to the fees set forth in the Fee Letter accrued and unpaid through such day, and third, to the extent funds are available therefor, an amount equal to the Issuer’s Share of the Servicing Fee accrued through such day and not previously set aside,
(ii)    subject to Section 1.4(f), if such day is not a Termination Day, remit to the Seller, on behalf of the Issuer, the remainder of the Issuer’s Share of such Collections. Such remainder shall be automatically reinvested in Pool Receivables, and in the Related Security, Collections and other proceeds with respect thereto; provided, however, that if the Purchased Interest would exceed 100%, then the Servicer shall not reinvest, but shall set aside and hold in trust for the Issuer (and shall, at the request of the Administrator, segregate in a separate account approved by the Administrator) a portion of such Collections that, together with the other Collections set aside pursuant to this paragraph, shall equal the amount necessary to reduce the Purchased Interest to 100%,
(iii)    if such day is a Termination Day, set aside, segregate and hold in trust (and shall, at the request of the Administrator, segregate in a separate account approved by the Administrator) for the Issuer the entire remainder of the Issuer’s Share of the Collections; provided, that if amounts are set aside and held in trust on any Termination Day of the type described in clause (a) of the definition of “Termination Day” and, thereafter, the conditions set forth in Section 2 of Exhibit II are satisfied or waived by the Administrator, such previously set-aside amounts shall be reinvested in accordance with clause (ii) on the day of such subsequent satisfaction or waiver of conditions, and

(iv)    release to the Seller (subject to Section 1.4(f)) for its own account any Collections in excess of: (x) amounts required to be reinvested in accordance with clause (ii) or the proviso to clause (iii) plus (y) the amounts that are required to be set aside pursuant to clause (i), the proviso to clause (ii) and clause (iii) plus (z) the Seller’s Share of the Servicing Fee accrued and unpaid through such day.
(c)    The Servicer shall deposit into the Administration Account (or such other account designated by the Administrator), on each Settlement Date (or solely with respect to Collections held for the Issuer pursuant to clause (f) such other date as set forth in clause (f)(iii) for such payment), Collections held for the Issuer pursuant to clause (b)(i) or (f) plus the amount of Collections then held for the Issuer pursuant to clauses (b)(ii) and (iii) of Section 1.4; provided, that if UGI or an Affiliate thereof is the Servicer, such day is not a Termination Day and the Administrator has not notified UGI (or such Affiliate) that the right to retain the portion of the Collections set aside pursuant to clause (b)(i) that represent the Issuer’s Share of the Servicing Fee is revoked, UGI (or such Affiliate) may retain the portion of the Collections set aside pursuant to clause (b)(i) that represents the Issuer’s Share of the Servicing Fee in payment in full of the Issuer’s Share of accrued Servicing Fees so set aside. On the last day of each Settlement Period, the Administrator will notify the Servicer by facsimile of the amount of Discount accrued with respect to each Portion of Capital during such Settlement Period or portion thereof.
(d)    Upon receipt of funds deposited into the Administration Account pursuant to clause (c), the Administrator shall cause such funds to be distributed as follows:
(i)    if such distribution occurs on a day that is not a Termination Day and the Purchased Interest does not exceed 100%, first to the Issuer in payment in full of all accrued Discount and fees (other than Servicing Fees) with respect to each Portion of Capital, and second, if the Servicer has set aside amounts in respect of the Servicing Fee pursuant to clause (b)(i) and has not retained such amounts pursuant to clause (c), to the Servicer (payable in arrears on each Settlement Date) in payment in full of the Issuer’s Share of accrued Servicing Fees so set aside, and
(ii)    if such distribution occurs on a Termination Day or on a day when the Purchased Interest exceeds 100%, first to the Issuer in payment in full of all accrued Discount with respect to each Portion of Capital, second to the Issuer in payment in full of Capital (or, if such day is not a Termination Day, the amount necessary to reduce the Purchased Interest to 100%), third, to the Servicer in payment in full of all accrued Servicing Fees, and fourth, if the Capital and accrued Discount with respect to each Portion of Capital have been reduced to zero, and all accrued Servicing Fees payable to the Servicer have been paid in full, to the Issuer, the Administrator and any other Indemnified Party or Affected Person in payment in full of any other amounts owed thereto by the Seller hereunder.
After the Capital, Discount, fees payable pursuant to the Fee Letter and Servicing Fees with respect to the Purchased Interest, and any other amounts payable by the Seller and the Servicer to the Issuer, the Administrator or any other Indemnified Party or Affected Person hereunder, have been paid in full, all additional Collections with respect to the Purchased Interest shall be paid to the Seller for its own account.

(e)    For the purposes of this Section 1.4:
(i)    if on any day the Outstanding Balance of any Pool Receivable is reduced or adjusted as a result of any defective, rejected, returned, repossessed or foreclosed goods or services, or any revision, cancellation, allowance, rebate, discount or other adjustment made by the Seller or any Affiliate of the Seller, or any setoff or dispute between the Seller or any Affiliate of the Seller and an Obligor, the Seller shall be deemed to have received on such day a Collection of such Pool Receivable in the amount of such reduction or adjustment;
(ii)    if on any day any of the representations or warranties in Section 1(g) or (n) of Exhibit III, or Section 2, 3 or 4 of Exhibit VI is not true with respect to any Pool Receivable, the Seller shall be deemed to have received on such day a Collection of such Pool Receivable in full;
(iii)    except as provided in clause (i) or (ii), or as otherwise required by applicable law or the relevant Contract, all Collections received from an Obligor of any Receivable shall be applied to the Receivables of such Obligor in the order of the age of such Receivables, starting with the oldest such Receivable, unless such Obligor designates its payment for application to specific Receivables; and
(iv)    if and to the extent the Administrator or the Issuer shall be required for any reason to pay over to an Obligor (or any trustee, receiver, custodian or similar official in any Insolvency Proceeding) any amount received by it hereunder, such amount shall be deemed not to have been so received by the Administrator or the Issuer but rather to have been retained by the Seller and, accordingly, the Administrator or the Issuer, as the case may be, shall have a claim against the Seller for such amount, payable when and to the extent that any distribution from or on behalf of such Obligor is made in respect thereof.
(f)    If at any time, the Seller shall wish to cause the reduction of the Capital (but not to commence the liquidation, or reduction to zero, of the entire Capital of the Purchased Interest), the Seller may do so as follows:
(i)    the Seller shall give the Administrator and the Servicer written notice in the form of Annex C (A) at least one Business Day prior to the date of such reduction for any reduction of Capital less than or equal to $20,000,000; (B) at least two Business Days prior to the date of such reduction for any reduction of Capital greater than $20,000,000 and less than or equal to $50,000,000; and (C) at least three Business Days prior to the date of such reduction for any reduction of Capital greater than $50,000,000, in each case such notice shall have been received by 3:00 p.m. New York City time on such date and shall include the amount of such proposed reduction and the proposed date on which such reduction will commence;
(ii)    on the proposed date of the commencement of such reduction and on each day thereafter, the Servicer shall cause Collections not to be reinvested until the amount thereof not so reinvested shall equal the desired amount of reduction; and

 
5
 




(iii)    the Servicer shall hold such Collections in trust for the Issuer, for payment to the Administrator on (1) solely with respect to any reduction described in subsections (f)(i)(B) or (f)(i)(C) the next Weekly Settlement Date, or (2) with respect to any reduction described in subsection (f)(i)(A), such other date with at least one (1) Business Day prior written notice to the Administrator of such payment, and the Capital shall be deemed reduced in the amount to be paid to the Administrator only when in fact finally so paid;
provided, that the amount of any such reduction shall be not less than $1,000,000 and shall be an integral multiple of $100,000.
Section 1.5    Fees. The Seller shall pay to the Administrator certain fees in the amounts and on the dates set forth in a fee letter, dated the date hereof, among UGI, the Seller and the Administrator (as such letter agreement may be amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Fee Letter”).
Section 1.6    Payments and Computations, Etc. (a) All amounts to be paid or deposited by the Seller or the Servicer hereunder shall be made without reduction for offset or counterclaim and shall be paid or deposited no later than noon (New York City time) on the day when due in same day funds to the Administration Account. All amounts received after noon (New York City time) will be deemed to have been received on the next Business Day.
(b)    The Seller or the Servicer, as the case may be, shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, pay interest on any amount not paid or deposited by the Seller or the Servicer, as the case may be, when due hereunder, at an interest rate equal to 3.00% per annum above the Base Rate, payable on demand.
(c)    All computations of interest under clause (b) and all computations of Discount, fees and other amounts hereunder shall be made on the basis of a year of 360 (or 365 or 366, as applicable, with respect to Discount or other amounts calculated by reference to the Base Rate) days for the actual number of days elapsed. Whenever any payment or deposit to be made hereunder shall be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment or deposit shall be made on the next Business Day and such extension of time shall be included in the computation of such payment or deposit.
Section 1.7    Increased Costs. (a) If the Administrator, the Issuer or any of their respective Affiliates (each an “Affected Person”) reasonably determines that the existence of or compliance with: (i) any law or regulation or any change therein or in the interpretation or application thereof by a Governmental Authority, in each case adopted, issued or occurring after the date hereof, or (ii) any request, guideline or directive from any central bank or other Governmental Authority (whether or not having the force of law) issued or occurring after the date of this Agreement, affects or would affect the amount of capital required or expected to be maintained by such Affected Person, and such Affected Person reasonably determines that the amount of such capital is increased by or based upon the existence of any commitment to make purchases of (or otherwise to maintain the investment in) Pool Receivables related to this Agreement or any related liquidity facility, credit enhancement facility and other commitments of the same type related to this Agreement, then, upon demand by such Affected Person (with a copy to the Administrator), the Seller shall promptly pay to the Administrator, for the account of such Affected Person, from time to time as specified by such

 
6
 




Affected Person, additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Affected Person in the light of such circumstances, to the extent that such Affected Person reasonably determines such increase in capital to be allocable to the existence of any of such commitments. A certificate as to such amounts submitted to the Seller and the Administrator by such Affected Person shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.
(b)    If, due to either: (i) the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any law or regulation by any Governmental Authority occurring after the date hereof or (ii) compliance with any guideline or request from any central bank or other Governmental Authority (whether or not having the force of law), there shall be any increase in the cost to any Affected Person of agreeing to purchase or purchasing, or maintaining the ownership of, the Purchased Interest in respect of which Discount is computed by reference to LMIR, then, upon demand by such Affected Person, the Seller shall promptly pay to such Affected Person, from time to time as specified by such Affected Person, additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Affected Person for such increased costs. A certificate as to such amounts submitted to the Seller and the Administrator by such Affected Person shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.
(c)    If such increased costs affect the related Affected Person’s portfolio of financing transactions, such Affected Person shall use reasonable averaging and attribution methods to allocate such increased costs to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
(d)    The Administrator will make reasonable efforts to cause the interest of any Affected Party (other than the Issuer or its domestic Affiliates) that makes a claim under this Section 1.7 to be transferred to a party that is not subject to increased costs under this Section 1.7; provided that neither the Administrator nor any of its Affiliates shall be required hereunder to itself accept such transferred interest.
(e)    Notwithstanding any language in this Section 1.7 to the contrary, nothing in this Section 1.7 shall be construed as requiring the Seller to make any payments attributable to or in respect of any tax of any kind whatsoever imposed upon or required to be withheld or deducted from payments to any Affected Person.
Section 1.8    Requirements of Law. If any Affected Person reasonably determines that the existence of or compliance with: (a) any law or regulation or any change therein or in the interpretation or application thereof, in each case adopted, issued or occurring after the date hereof, or (b) any request, guideline or directive from any central bank or other Governmental Authority (whether or not having the force of law) issued or occurring after the date of this Agreement:
(i)    does or shall subject such Affected Person to any tax of any kind whatsoever with respect to this Agreement, any increase in the Purchased Interest or in the amount of Capital relating thereto, or does or shall change the basis of taxation of payments to such Affected Person on account of Collections, Discount or any other amounts payable hereunder (excluding taxes imposed on the overall or branch pre-tax net income of such Affected Person, and franchise taxes imposed on such Affected Person by the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Affected Person is organized or otherwise is considered doing business

 
7
 




(unless the Affected Person would not be considered doing business in such jurisdiction, but for having entered into, or engaged in the transactions in connection with, this Agreement or any other Transaction Document) or a political subdivision thereof,
(ii)    does or shall impose, modify or hold applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan or similar requirement against assets held by, or deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, purchases, advances or loans by, or other credit extended by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of such Affected Person that are not otherwise included in the determination of LMIR or the Base Rate hereunder, or
(iii)    does or shall impose on such Affected Person any other condition,
and the result of any of the foregoing is: (A) to increase the cost to such Affected Person of acting as Administrator, or of agreeing to purchase or purchasing or maintaining the ownership of undivided percentage ownership interests with regard to the Purchased Interest (or interests therein) or any Portion of Capital, or (B) to reduce any amount receivable hereunder (whether directly or indirectly), then, in any such case, without duplication to any amounts paid or payable pursuant to Section 1.7 or Section 3.1 upon demand by such Affected Person, the Seller shall promptly pay to such Affected Person additional amounts necessary to compensate such Affected Person for such additional cost or reduced amount receivable. All such amounts shall be payable as incurred. A certificate from such Affected Person to the Seller and the Administrator certifying, in reasonably specific detail, the basis for, calculation of, and amount of such additional costs or reduced amount receivable shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error; provided, however, that no Affected Person shall be required to disclose any confidential or tax planning information in any such certificate.
Section 1.9    Inability to Determine LMIR. (a) If the Administrator determines on any day (which determination shall be final and conclusive) that, by reason of circumstances affecting the interbank eurodollar market generally, deposits in dollars (in the relevant amounts for such day) are not being offered to banks in the interbank eurodollar market for such day, or adequate means do not exist for ascertaining LMIR for such day, then the Administrator shall give notice thereof to the Seller. Thereafter, until the Administrator notifies the Seller that the circumstances giving rise to such suspension no longer exist, (i) no Portion of Capital shall be funded at the Alternate Rate determined by reference to LMIR and (ii) the Discount for any outstanding Portions of Capital then funded at the Alternate Rate determined by reference to LMIR shall immediately be converted to the Alternate Rate determined by reference to the Base Rate.
(b)    If, on any day, the Administrator shall have been notified by the Issuer that the Issuer has determined (which determination shall be final and conclusive) that any enactment, promulgation or adoption of or any change in any applicable law, rule or regulation, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by a Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by the Issuer with any guideline, request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency shall make it unlawful or impossible for the Issuer to fund or maintain any Portion of Capital at the Alternate Rate and based upon LMIR , the Administrator shall notify the Seller thereof. Upon receipt of such notice, until the Administrator

 
8
 




notifies the Seller that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer apply, (i) no Portion of Capital shall be funded at the Alternate Rate determined by reference to LMIR and (ii) the Discount for any outstanding Portions of Capital then funded at the Alternate Rate determined by reference to LMIR shall immediately be converted to the Alternate Rate determined by reference to the Base Rate.

Without limiting any other rights that the Administrator, the Issuer or any other Indemnified Party may have hereunder or under applicable law, the Servicer hereby agrees to indemnify each Indemnified Party from and against any and all Indemnified Amounts incurred by any Indemnified Party arising out of or resulting from (whether directly or indirectly): (a) the failure of any information contained in an Information Package to be true and correct, or the failure of any other information provided to the Issuer or the Administrator by, or on behalf of, the Servicer to be true and correct, (b) the failure of any representation, warranty or statement made or deemed made by the Servicer (or any of its officers) under or in connection with this Agreement to have been true and correct as of the date made or deemed made (with respect to any Information Package) in all respects when made, (c) the failure by the Servicer to comply with any applicable law, rule or regulation with respect to any Pool Receivable or the related Contract, (d) any dispute, claim, offset or defense (other than as a result of a discharge in bankruptcy) of the Obligor to the payment of any Receivable in, or purporting to be in, the Receivables Pool resulting from or related to the collection activities with respect to such Receivable, or (e) any failure of the Servicer to perform its duties or obligations in accordance with the provisions hereof or any other Transaction Document to which it is a party, (f) the failure to have filed, or any delay in filing, financing statements or other similar instruments or documents under the UCC of any applicable jurisdiction or other applicable laws with respect to any Receivables, in or purporting to be in the Receivables Pool and any other Pool Assets, whether at the time of any purchase or reinvestment or at any subsequent time, or (g) any commingling by the Servicer of Collections at any time with other funds.
Section 3.3    Notice of Claims. Promptly after the receipt by an Indemnified Party of a notice of the commencement of any action, suit, proceeding, investigation or claim against such Indemnified Party as to which it proposes to demand indemnification from the Seller or Servicer (each, as applicable, an “Indemnifying Party”) pursuant to Section 3.1 or 3.2, as applicable, such Indemnified Party shall notify the applicable Indemnifying Party in writing of the commencement thereof; provided that the failure so to notify such Indemnifying Party shall not relieve such Indemnifying Party from any liability which such Indemnifying Party may have to such Indemnified Party pursuant to Section 3.1 or 3.2 unless to the extent that such failure results in the forfeiture by any such Indemnifying Party of substantive rights or defenses.
ARTICLE IV.
ADMINISTRATION AND COLLECTIONS

 
11
 




Section 4.1    Appointment of the Servicer. (a) The servicing, administering and collection of the Pool Receivables shall be conducted by the Person so designated from time to time as the Servicer in accordance with this Section. Until and unless the Administrator gives notice to UGI upon the occurrence of a Termination Event (in accordance with this Section) of the designation of a new Servicer, UGI is hereby designated as, and hereby agrees to perform the duties and obligations of, the Servicer pursuant to the terms hereof. Upon the occurrence of a Termination Event, the Administrator may designate as Servicer any Person (including itself) to succeed UGI or any successor Servicer, on the condition in each case that any such Person so designated shall agree to perform the duties and obligations of the Servicer pursuant to the terms hereof.
(b)    Upon the designation of a successor Servicer as set forth in clause (a), UGI agrees that it will terminate its activities as Servicer hereunder in a manner that the Administrator determines will facilitate the transition of the performance of such activities to the new Servicer, and UGI shall cooperate with and assist such new Servicer. Such cooperation shall include reasonable access to and transfer of related records and use by the new Servicer of all licenses (or the obtaining of new licenses), hardware or software necessary or desirable to collect the Pool Receivables and the Related Security.
(c)    UGI acknowledges that, in making their decision to execute and deliver this Agreement, the Administrator and the Issuer have relied on UGI’s agreement to act as Servicer hereunder. Accordingly, UGI agrees that it will not voluntarily resign as Servicer.
(d)    The Servicer may delegate its duties and obligations hereunder to any subservicer (each a “Sub-Servicer”); provided, that, in each such delegation: (i) such Sub-Servicer shall agree in writing to perform the duties and obligations of the Servicer pursuant to the terms hereof, (ii) the Servicer shall remain primarily liable for the performance of the duties and obligations so delegated, (iii) the Seller, the Administrator and the Issuer shall have the right to look solely to the Servicer for performance, and (iv) the terms of any agreement with any Sub-Servicer shall provide that the Administrator may terminate such agreement upon the termination of the Servicer hereunder by giving notice of its desire to terminate such agreement to the Servicer (and the Servicer shall provide appropriate notice to each such Sub-Servicer); provided, however, that if any such delegation is to any Person other than the Originator, the Administrator shall have consented in writing in advance to such delegation; provided, further, that the requirements set forth in clauses (i) and (iv) of the first proviso shall not apply to any Sub-Servicer that is a utility providing billing and collection services to the Servicer where amounts owed on the Receivables are included in the invoice that such utility sends to its customers.
Section 4.2    Duties of the Servicer. (a) The Servicer shall take or cause to be taken all such action as may be reasonably necessary or advisable to administer and collect each Pool Receivable from time to time, all in accordance with this Agreement and all applicable laws, rules and regulations, with reasonable care and diligence, and in accordance with the Credit and Collection Policies. The Servicer shall set aside, for the accounts of the Seller and the Issuer, the amount of the Collections to which each is entitled in accordance with Article I. The Servicer may, in accordance with the applicable Credit and Collection Policy, take such action as the Servicer may reasonably determine to be appropriate to maximize Collections thereof or reflect adjustments required under

 
12
 




applicable laws, rules or regulations or the applicable Contract; provided, however, that: for the purposes of this Agreement, (i) such action shall not change the number of days such Pool Receivable has remained unpaid from the date of the original due date related to such Pool Receivable, (ii) such action shall not alter the status of such Pool Receivable as a Delinquent Receivable or a Defaulted Receivable or limit the rights of the Issuer or the Administrator under this Agreement and (iii) if a Termination Event has occurred and is continuing and UGI or an Affiliate thereof is serving as the Servicer, UGI or such Affiliate may take such action only upon the prior approval of the Administrator. The Seller shall deliver to the Servicer and the Servicer shall hold for the benefit of the Seller and the Administrator (individually and for the benefit of the Issuer), in accordance with their respective interests, all records and documents (including computer tapes or disks) with respect to each Pool Receivable. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Administrator may direct the Servicer (whether the Servicer is UGI or any other Person) to commence or settle any legal action to enforce collection of any Pool Receivable or to foreclose upon or repossess any Related Security; provided, however, that no such direction may be given unless either: (A) a Termination Event has occurred or (B) the Administrator believes in good faith that the failure to commence, settle or effect such legal action, foreclosure or repossession could adversely affect Receivables constituting a material portion of the Pool Receivables.
(b)    The Servicer shall, as soon as practicable following actual receipt of collected funds, turn over to the Seller (or to the Originator in the case of payment due to a Reseller) the collections of any indebtedness that is not a Pool Receivable, less, if UGI or an Affiliate thereof is not the Servicer, all reasonable and appropriate out-of-pocket costs and expenses of such Servicer of servicing, collecting and administering such collections. The Servicer, if other than UGI or an Affiliate thereof, shall, as soon as practicable upon demand, deliver to the Seller all records in its possession that evidence or relate to any indebtedness that is not a Pool Receivable, and copies of records in its possession that evidence or relate to any indebtedness that is a Pool Receivable.
(c)    The Servicer’s obligations hereunder shall terminate on the later of: (i) the Facility Termination Date and (ii) the date on which all amounts required to be paid to the Issuer, the Administrator and any other Indemnified Party or Affected Person hereunder shall have been paid in full.
After such termination, if UGI or an Affiliate thereof was not the Servicer on the date of such termination, the Servicer shall promptly deliver to the Seller all books, records and related materials that the Seller previously provided to the Servicer, or that have been obtained by the Servicer, in connection with this Agreement.
Section 4.3    Lock-Box Arrangements. Within 30 days of the initial purchase hereunder, the Seller shall enter into Lock-Box Agreements with all of the Lock-Box Banks and deliver original counterparts thereof to the Administrator. Upon the occurrence of and continuance of a Termination Event, the Administrator may at any time thereafter give notice to each Lock-Box Bank that the Administrator is exercising its rights under the Lock-Box Agreements to do any or all of the following: (a) to have the exclusive ownership and control of the Lock-Box Accounts (and the related lock-boxes) transferred to the Administrator and to exercise exclusive dominion and control over the funds deposited therein, (b) to have the proceeds that are sent to the respective Lock-Box

 
13
 




Accounts (and the respective related lock-boxes) redirected pursuant to the Administrator’s instructions rather than deposited in the applicable Lock-Box Account (or sent to the applicable related lock-box), and (c) to take any or all other actions permitted under the applicable Lock-Box Agreement. The Seller hereby agrees that if the Administrator at any time takes any action set forth in the preceding sentence, the Administrator shall have exclusive control of the proceeds (including Collections) of all Pool Receivables and the Seller hereby further agrees to take any other action that the Administrator may reasonably request to transfer such control. Any proceeds of Pool Receivables received by the Seller or the Servicer thereafter shall be sent immediately to the Administrator. The parties hereto hereby acknowledge that if at any time the Administrator takes control of any Lock-Box Account (and any such related lock-box), the Administrator shall not have any rights to the funds therein in excess of the unpaid amounts due to the Administrator, the Issuer or any other Person hereunder, and the Administrator shall distribute or cause to be distributed such funds in accordance with Section 4.2(b) and Article I (in each case as if such funds were held by the Servicer thereunder).
Section 4.4    Enforcement Rights. (a) At any time following the occurrence and continuance of a Termination Event:
(i)    the Administrator may direct the Obligors that payment of all amounts payable under any Pool Receivable is to be made directly to the Administrator or its designee,
(ii)    the Administrator may instruct the Seller or the Servicer to give notice of the Issuer’s interest in Pool Receivables to each Obligor, which notice shall direct that payments be made directly to the Administrator or its designee, and the Seller or the Servicer, as the case may be, shall give such notice at the expense of the Seller or the Servicer, as the case may be; provided, that if the Seller or the Servicer, as the case may be, fails to so notify each Obligor within a reasonable time after said instruction (in no event not later than 10 days thereafter), the Administrator (at the Seller’s or the Servicer’s, as the case may be, expense) may so notify the Obligors, and
(iii)    the Administrator may request the Servicer to, and upon such request the Servicer shall: (A) assemble all of the records in the Servicer’s possession or under its control necessary or desirable to collect the Pool Receivables and the Related Security, and transfer or license (or obtain new licenses) to a successor Servicer the use of all software in the Servicer’s possession or under its control necessary or desirable to collect the Pool Receivables and the Related Security, and make the same available to the Administrator or its designee at a place selected by the Administrator to the extent permissible under such agreements, and (B) segregate all cash, checks and other instruments received by it from time to time constituting Collections in a manner reasonably acceptable to the Administrator and, promptly upon receipt, remit all such cash, checks and instruments, duly endorsed or with duly executed instruments of transfer, to the Administrator or its designee.
(b)    The Seller hereby authorizes the Administrator, and irrevocably appoints the Administrator as its attorney-in-fact with full power of substitution and with full authority in the place and stead of the Seller, which appointment is coupled with an interest, upon the occurrence and continuation of a Termination Event to take any and all steps in the name of the Seller and on

 
14
 




behalf of the Seller necessary or desirable, in the determination of the Administrator, to collect any and all amounts or portions thereof due under any and all Pool Assets, including endorsing the name of the Seller on checks and other instruments representing Collections and enforcing such Pool Assets. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this subsection, none of the powers conferred upon such attorney-in-fact pursuant to the preceding sentence shall subject such attorney-in-fact to any liability if any action taken by it shall prove to be inadequate or invalid, nor shall they confer any obligations upon such attorney-in-fact in any manner whatsoever; provided, however, that the Administrator shall not be relieved of any liability it might otherwise have to any party hereunder for its own gross negligence or willful misconduct.
Section 4.5    Responsibilities of the Seller. (a) Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the Seller shall: (i) perform all of its obligations, if any, under the Contracts related to the Pool Receivables to the same extent as if interests in such Pool Receivables had not been transferred hereunder, and the exercise by the Administrator or the Issuer of their respective rights hereunder shall not relieve the Seller from such obligations, and (ii) pay when due any taxes, including any sales taxes payable in connection with the Pool Receivables and their creation and satisfaction. The Administrator and the Issuer shall not have any obligation or liability with respect to any Pool Asset, nor shall either of them be obligated to perform any of the obligations of the Seller, UGI or the Originator thereunder.
(b)    UGI hereby irrevocably agrees that if at any time it shall cease to be the Servicer hereunder, it shall act (if the then-current Servicer so requests) as the data-processing agent of the Servicer and, in such capacity, UGI shall conduct the data-processing functions of the administration of the Receivables and the Collections thereon in substantially the same way that UGI conducted such data-processing functions while it acted as the Servicer.
Section 4.6    Servicing Fee. (a) Subject to clause (b), the Servicer shall be paid a fee equal to 0.50% per annum (the “Servicing Fee Rate”) of the daily average aggregate Outstanding Balance of the Pool Receivables. The Issuer’s Share of such fee shall be paid through the distributions contemplated by Section 1.4(d), and the Seller’s Share of such fee shall be paid by the Seller on each Settlement Date.
(b)    If the Servicer ceases to be UGI or an Affiliate thereof, the servicing fee shall be the greater of: (i) the amount calculated pursuant to clause (a), and (ii) an alternative amount specified by the successor Servicer not to exceed 110% of the aggregate reasonable costs and expenses incurred by such successor Servicer in connection with the performance of its obligations as Servicer.
ARTICLE V.

Section 5.1    Amendments, Etc. No amendment or waiver of any provision of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, or consent to any departure by the Seller or the Servicer therefrom, shall be effective unless in a writing signed by the Administrator, and, in the case of any amendment, by the other parties thereto; and then such amendment, waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given. No failure on the part of the Issuer or the Administrator to exercise, and no delay in exercising any right

(k)    The Seller’s assets will be maintained in a manner that facilitates their identification and segregation from those of UGI or any Affiliate thereof;

EXHIBIT VI
SUPPLEMENTAL PERFECTION REPRESENTATIONS,
WARRANTIES AND COVENANTS
In addition to the representations, warranties and covenants contained in Exhibit III hereof, the Seller hereby makes the following additional representations, warranties and covenants:
1.    Receivables; Lock‑box Accounts.
(a)    The Pool Receivables constitute “accounts”, “general intangibles” or “tangible chattel paper”, each within the meaning of the applicable UCC.
(b)    Lock‑Box Accounts. Each Lock‑Box Account constitutes a “deposit account” within the meaning of the applicable UCC.
2.    Creation of Security Interest. The Seller owns and has good and marketable title to the Pool Receivables and Lock‑Box Accounts (and the related lock-boxes), free and clear of any Adverse Claim. The Agreement creates a valid and continuing security interest (as defined in the applicable UCC) in the Pool Receivables and the Lock‑Box Accounts (and the related lock-boxes) in favor of the Issuer, which security interest is prior to all other Adverse Claims and is enforceable as such as against any creditors of and purchasers from the Seller.
3.    Perfection.
(a)    General. The Seller has or has caused, or will or will cause within ten days after the date hereof, 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 Pool Receivables from the Originator to the Seller pursuant to the Purchase and Sale Agreement and the security interest granted by the Seller to the Issuer in the Receivables and Lock‑Box Accounts (and the related lock-boxes) hereunder.
(b)    Tangible Chattel Paper. With respect to any Pool Receivable that constitutes “tangible chattel paper”, the Servicer is in possession of the original copies of the tangible chattel paper that constitute or evidence such Pool Receivables, and the Seller has filed or has caused the Originator to file, or will file or will cause the Originator to file within ten days after the date hereof, the financing statements described in paragraph (a) above, each of which will contain a statement that: “A purchase of or a grant of a security interest in any property described in this financing statement will violate the rights of the Issuer.” The Pool Receivables to the extent they are evidenced by “tangible chattel paper” do not have any marks or notations indicating that they have been pledged, assigned or otherwise conveyed to any Person other than the Seller or the Issuer.
(c)    Lock‑Box Accounts. With respect to all Lock‑Box Accounts (and all related lock-boxes), the Seller has delivered to the Administrator, on behalf of the Issuer, a fully executed Lock‑Box Agreement pursuant to which the applicable Lock‑Box Bank has agreed, following the occurrence and continuation of a Termination Event, to comply with all instructions given by the

 
 
 




Administrator with respect to all funds on deposit in such Lock‑Box Account (and all funds sent to the respective lock-box), without further consent by the Seller or the Servicer.
4.    Priority.
(a)    Other than the transfer of the Receivables by the Originator to the Seller pursuant to the Purchase and Sale Agreement and the grant of security interest by the Seller to the Issuer in the Pool Receivables and Lock‑Box Accounts (and the related lock-boxes) hereunder, neither the Seller nor the Originator has pledged, assigned, sold, conveyed, or otherwise granted a security interest in any of the Pool Receivables or Lock‑Box Accounts (and the related lock-boxes) to any other Person.
(b)    Neither the Seller nor the Originator has authorized, or is aware of, any filing of any financing statement against the Seller or the Originator that includes a description of collateral covering the Pool Receivables or any other Pool Assets, other than any financing statement filed pursuant to the Purchase and Sale Agreement and the Agreement or financing statements that have been validly terminated prior to the date hereof.
(c)    The Seller is not aware of any judgment, ERISA or tax lien filings against either the Seller or the Originator.
(d)    None of the Lock‑Box Accounts (and the related lock-boxes) are in the name of any Person other than the Seller or the Issuer. None of the Seller, the Servicer or the Originator has consented to any Lock‑Box Bank’s complying with instructions of any person other than the Administrator.
5.    Survival of Supplemental Representations. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Agreement or any other Transaction Document, the representations contained in this Exhibit VI shall be continuing, and remain in full force and effect until such time as all the Capital has finally been paid in full and all other obligations of the Seller under the Agreement or any other Transaction Documents have been fully performed.
6.    [Reserved].
7.    Seller to Maintain Perfection and Priority. In order to evidence the interests of the Issuer under this Agreement, the Seller shall, from time to time take such action, or execute and deliver such instruments (other than filing financing statements) as may be necessary or advisable (including, without limitation, such actions as are requested by the Administrator on behalf of the Issuer) to maintain and perfect, as a first‑priority interest, the Issuer’s security interest in the Pool Assets. The Seller shall, from time to time and within the time limits established by law, prepare and present to the Administrator for the Administrator’s authorization and approval all financing statements, amendments, continuations or initial financing statements in lieu of a continuation statement, or other filings necessary to continue, maintain and perfect the Issuer’s security interest in the Pool Assets as a first‑priority interest. The Administrator’s approval of such filings shall authorize the Seller to file such financing statements under the UCC without the signature of the Seller, the Originator or the Issuer where allowed by applicable law. Notwithstanding anything

 
 
 




else in the Transaction Documents to the contrary, neither the Seller, the Servicer, nor the Originator, shall have any authority to file a termination, partial termination, release, partial release or any amendment that deletes the name of a debtor or excludes collateral of any such financing statements, without the prior written consent of the Administrator, on behalf of the Issuer.
