SECTION 2 LOANS

2.1 Revolving Loans.

(a) Revolving Commitments.

(i) During the Revolving Commitment Period, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, including, without limitation delivery of an updated Borrowing Base Certificate and Borrowing Base Report pursuant to Section 3.2(a)(i), each Class A Committed Lender severally agrees to make Class A Revolving Loans to Company in an aggregate amount up to but not exceeding such Class A Committed Lender’s Revolving Commitment; provided that, (A) each Class A Conduit Lender may, but shall not be obligated to fund such Class A Revolving Loan (and if any Class A Conduit Lender elects not to fund any such Class A Revolving Loan, the Class A Committed Lender in its related Lender Group hereby commits to, and shall, fund such Class A Revolving Loan), and (B) no Class A Lender shall make any such Class A Revolving Loan or portion thereof to the extent that, after giving effect to such Class A Revolving Loan:

39

 


 

(a) the Total Utilization of Class A Revolving Loans exceeds the Class A Borrowing Base;

(b) a Class A Borrowing Base Deficiency or a Class B Borrowing Base Deficiency exists; or

(c) the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Class A Revolving Loans funded by such Class A Committed Lender hereunder shall exceed its Class A Revolving Commitment.

(ii) During the Revolving Commitment Period, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, including, without limitation delivery of an updated Borrowing Base Certificate and Borrowing Base Report pursuant to Section 3.2(a)(i), each Class B Lender severally agrees to make Class B Revolving Loans to Company in an aggregate amount up to but not exceeding such Lender’s Class B Revolving Commitment; provided that no Class B Lender shall make any such Class B Revolving Loan or portion thereof to the extent that, after giving effect to such Class B Revolving Loan:

(a) the Total Utilization of Class B Revolving Commitments exceeds the Class B Borrowing Base;

(b) a Class A Borrowing Base Deficiency or a Class B Borrowing Base Deficiency exists; or

(c) the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Class B Revolving Loans funded by such Class B Lender hereunder shall exceed its Class B Revolving Commitment.

(b) Amounts borrowed pursuant to Section 2.1(a) may be repaid pro rata and reborrowed during the Revolving Commitment Period subject to the terms, if any, set forth in the Fee Letter, provided that the Company (A) may not repay (x) the Class A Revolving Loans more than three (3) times per week and (y) the Class B Revolving Loans more than three (3) times per week; provided, further, that the Company may make one (1) additional repayment of Class B Revolving Loans during the last week of any calendar quarter with the prior written consent of the Requisite Class B Lenders, (B) must deliver to the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent and the Class B Lenders a Controlled Account Voluntary Payment Notice pursuant to Section 2.11(c)(vii) in connection with such repayment and (C) each repayment shall be in a minimum amount of $250,000. Each Lender’s Revolving Commitment shall expire on the Revolving Commitment Termination Date and all Revolving Loans and all other amounts owed hereunder with respect to the Revolving Loans and the Revolving Commitments shall be paid in full no later than (1) with respect to the Class A Revolving Loans, the Class A Maturity Date, and (2) with respect to the Class B Revolving Loans, the Class B Maturity Date. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary herein, however, and for the avoidance of doubt, the Company may also at any time or from time to time during the Early Amortization Period, voluntarily prepay the Revolving Loans in whole or in part, with such prepayment to be applied pursuant to the priority of payments set forth in Section 2.12(b) or (c), as applicable.

(c) Borrowing Mechanics for Revolving Loans.

(i) Class A Revolving Loans shall be made in an aggregate minimum amount of $500,000, and Class B Revolving Loans shall be made in an aggregate minimum amount of

40

 


 

$50,000. After a Class B Joinder Agreement has been executed (or an initial Class B Lender otherwise becomes party to this Agreement), Company shall only request and Lenders shall only make Class A Revolving Loans and Class B Revolving Loans on a pro rata basis to and from each Lender in accordance with their Pro Rata Share.

(ii) Whenever Company desires that Lenders make Revolving Loans, Company shall deliver a fully executed and delivered Funding Notice to (A) the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent and the Custodian no later than 3:00 p.m. (New York City time) at least two (2) Business Days in advance of the proposed Credit Date (or such shorter period as shall be agreed between the Administrative Agent and Company) with respect to Class A Revolving Loans and (B) the Administrative Agent, the Class B Lenders, the Paying Agent and the Custodian no later than 3:00 p.m. (New York City time) two (2) Business Days in advance of the proposed Credit Date (or such shorter period as shall be agreed between the Class B Lenders and Company) with respect to Class B Revolving Loans. Each such Funding Notice shall be delivered with a Borrowing Base Certificate reflecting sufficient Class A Revolving Availability and Class B Revolving Availability, as applicable, for the requested Revolving Loans and a Borrowing Base Report.

(iii) Each Class A Conduit Lender receiving a Funding Notice may reject such request by no later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the Business Day in advance of the proposed Credit Date notifying Company and the related Class A Committed Lenders of such rejection. If a Class A Conduit Lender declines to fund any portion of a Funding Notice, Company may cancel and rescind such Funding Notice in its entirety upon notice thereof received by Administrative Agent, each Class A Lender, each Class B Lender, the Paying Agent and the Custodian prior to the close of business on the Business Day immediately prior to the proposed Credit Date. At no time will a Class A Conduit Lender be obligated to make Class A Revolving Loans hereunder regardless of any notice given or not given pursuant to this Section.

(iv) If a Class A Conduit Lender rejects a Funding Notice and Company has not cancelled such Funding Notice in accordance with clause (iii) above, or if there is no Class A Conduit Lender in a Lender Group, any Class A Revolving Loans requested by Company in such Funding Notice shall be made by the related Class A Committed Lenders in such Lender Group on a pro rata basis. The obligations of any Class A Committed Lender to make Class A Revolving Loans hereunder are several from the obligations of any other Class A Committed Lenders (whether or not in the same Lender Group). The failure of any Class A Committed Lender to make Class A Revolving Loans hereunder shall not release the obligations of any other Class A Committed Lender (whether or not in the same Lender Group) to make Class A Revolving Loans hereunder, but no Class A Committed Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Class A Committed Lender to make any Class A Revolving Loan hereunder.

(v) Each Lender shall make the amount of its Revolving Loan available to the Paying Agent not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the applicable Credit Date by wire transfer of same day funds in Dollars to the Funding Account, and the Paying Agent shall remit such funds to the Company not later than 3:00 p.m. (New York City time) by wire transfer of same day funds in Dollars from the Funding Account to another account of Company designated in the related Funding Notice.

(vi) Company may borrow Class A Revolving Loans pursuant to this Section 2.1, purchase Eligible Receivables pursuant to Section 2.11(c)(vii)(C) and/or repay Class A Revolving Loans pursuant to Section 2.11(c)(vii)(B) no more than two (2) times per week. Company may borrow Class B Revolving Loans pursuant to this Section 2.1 no more than two (2) times per calendar month; provided, that the Company may make one (1) additional borrowing of

41

 


 

Class B Revolving Loans during the last week of any calendar quarter with the written consent (to be given in their sole discretion) of the Requisite Class B Lenders.

(d) Deemed Requests for Revolving Loans to Pay Required Payments. All payments of principal, interest, fees and other amounts payable to Lenders of any Class under this Agreement or any Credit Document may be paid from the proceeds of Revolving Loans of such Class, made pursuant to a Funding Notice from Company pursuant to Section 2.1(c).

2.2 Pro Rata Shares. All Revolving Loans of each Class shall be made by Class A Committed Lenders or Class B Lenders, as applicable, simultaneously and proportionately to their respective Pro Rata Shares, it being understood that no Lender shall be responsible for any default by any other Lender in such other Lender’s obligation to make a Revolving Loan requested hereunder nor shall any Revolving Commitment of any Lender be increased or decreased as a result of a default by any other Lender in such other Lender’s obligation to make a Revolving Loan requested hereunder.

2.3 Use of Proceeds. The proceeds of the Revolving Loans, if any, made on the Closing Date shall be applied by Company to (a) finance the acquisition of Eligible Receivables from the Sellers pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement, (b) pay Transaction Costs and ongoing fees and expenses of Company hereunder, (c) make other payments in accordance with Section 2.12. and (d) in the case of Revolving Loans made pursuant to Section 2.1(d), to make payments of principal, interest, fees and other amounts owing to the Lenders under the Credit Documents. The proceeds of the Revolving Loans may also be used to make a Borrower Distribution in accordance with Section 6.5. No portion of the proceeds of any Credit Extension shall be used in any manner that causes or might cause such Credit Extension or the application of such proceeds to violate Regulation T, Regulation U or Regulation X of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System or any other regulation thereof or to violate the Exchange Act.

2.4 Evidence of Debt; Register; Lenders’ Books and Records; Notes.

(a) Lenders’ Evidence of Debt. Each Lender shall maintain on its internal records an account or accounts evidencing the Obligations of Company to such Lender, including the amounts of the Revolving Loans made by it and each repayment and prepayment in respect thereof. Any such recordation shall be conclusive and binding on Company, absent manifest error; provided, that the failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such recordation, shall not affect any Lender’s Revolving Commitments or Company’s Obligations in respect of any applicable Revolving Loans; and provided further, in the event of any inconsistency between the Registers and any Lender’s records, the recordations in the Registers shall govern absent manifest error.

(b) Registers.

(i) Class A Register. The Administrative Agent, acting for this purpose as an agent of the Company, shall maintain at its Principal Office a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Class A Lenders and the Class A Revolving Commitments and Class A Revolving Loans of each Class A Lender from time to time (the “Class A Register”). The Class A Register shall be available for inspection by Company or any Class A Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. The Administrative Agent shall record in the Class A Register the Class A Revolving Commitments and the Class A Revolving Loans, and each repayment or prepayment in respect of the principal amount of the Class A Revolving Loans, and any such recordation shall be conclusive and binding on Company and each Class A Lender, absent manifest error; provided, failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such recordation, shall not affect any Class A Committed Lender’s Class A Revolving Commitments or

42

 


 

Company’s Obligations in respect of any Class A Revolving Loan. Company hereby designates the entity serving as the Administrative Agent to serve as Company’s agent solely for purposes of maintaining the Class A Register as provided in this Section 2.4, and Company hereby agrees that, to the extent such entity serves in such capacity, the entity serving as the Administrative Agent and its officers, directors, employees, agents and affiliates shall constitute “Indemnitees.”

(ii) Class B Register. The Administrative Agent, acting for this purpose as an agent of the Company, shall maintain at its Principal Office a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Class B Lenders and the Class B Revolving Commitments and Class B Revolving Loans of each Class B Lender from time to time (the “Class B Register”). The Class B Register shall be available for inspection by Company or any Class B Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. The Administrative Agent shall record in the Class B Register the Class B Revolving Commitments and the Class B Revolving Loans, and each repayment or prepayment in respect of the principal amount of the Class B Revolving Loans, and any such recordation shall be conclusive and binding on Company and each Class B Lender, absent manifest error; provided, failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such recordation, shall not affect any Class B Lender’s Class B Revolving Commitments or Company’s Obligations in respect of any Class B Revolving Loan. Company hereby designates the Administrative Agent to serve as Company’s agent solely for purposes of maintaining the Class B Register as provided in this Section 2.4, and Company hereby agrees that, to the extent such entity serves in such capacity, the Administrative Agent and its officers, directors, employees, agents and affiliates shall constitute “Indemnitees.”

(c) Revolving Loan Notes. If so requested by any Lender by written notice to Company (with a copy to Administrative Agent) at least two (2) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, or at any time thereafter, Company shall execute and deliver to such Lender (and/or, if applicable and if so specified in such notice, to any Person who is an assignee of such Lender pursuant to Section 9.6) on the Closing Date (or, if such notice is delivered after the Closing Date, promptly after Company’s receipt of such notice) a Class A Revolving Loan Note or Class B Revolving Loan Note, as applicable, to evidence such Lender’s Revolving Loans.

2.5 Interest on Loans.

(a) The Class A Revolving Loans shall accrue interest daily at the Class A Interest Rate. The Class B Revolving Loans shall accrue interest daily at the Class B Interest Rate.

(b) Interest computed by reference to Daily Simple SOFR hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days. Interest computed by reference to the Base Rate at times when the Base Rate is based on the Prime Rate shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days in a leap year). In each case interest shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). All interest hereunder on any Revolving Loan shall be computed on a daily basis based upon the outstanding principal amount of such Revolving Loan as of the applicable date of determination. The applicable Base Rate, Adjusted Daily Simple SOFR or Daily Simple SOFR shall be determined by the Administrative Agent, and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error. In computing interest on any Revolving Loan, the date of the making of such Revolving Loan or the first day of an Interest Period applicable to such Revolving Loan shall be included, and the date of payment of such Revolving Loan or the expiration date of an Interest Period applicable to such Revolving Loan shall be excluded; provided, if a Revolving Loan is repaid on the same day on which it is made, one (1) day’s interest shall be paid on that Revolving Loan. The Administrative Agent shall provide an invoice of the interest, Class A Unused Fee and Class B Unused Fee (calculated by the Administrative Agent) accrued

43

 


 

and to accrue to each Interest Payment Date on Revolving Loans not later than 3:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the Interest Rate Determination Date immediately preceding such Interest Payment Date.

(c) Except as otherwise set forth herein, interest on each Revolving Loan shall be payable in arrears (i) on each Interest Payment Date; (ii) upon the request of the Administrative Agent (unless such prepayment results in a permanent reduction of the Revolving Commitments), upon any prepayment of that Revolving Loan, whether voluntary or mandatory, to the extent accrued on the amount being prepaid; and (iii) at maturity.

(d) The interest rate on a Revolving Loan may be derived from an interest rate benchmark that may be discontinued or is, or may in the future become, the subject of regulatory reform. Upon the occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event, Section 2.24(b) provides a mechanism for determining an alternative rate of interest. The Administrative Agent does not warrant or accept any responsibility for, and shall not have any liability with respect to, the administration, submission, performance or any other matter related to any interest rate used in this Agreement, or with respect to any alternative or successor rate thereto, or replacement rate thereof, including without limitation, whether the composition or characteristics of any such alternative, successor or replacement reference rate will be similar to, or produce the same value or economic equivalence of, the existing interest rate being replaced or have the same volume or liquidity as did any existing interest rate prior to its discontinuance or unavailability. The Administrative Agent and its affiliates and/or other related entities may engage in transactions that affect the calculation of any interest rate used in this Agreement or any alternative, successor or alternative rate (including any Benchmark Replacement) and/or any relevant adjustments thereto, in each case, in a manner adverse to the Company. The Administrative Agent may select information sources or services in its reasonable discretion to ascertain any interest rate used in this Agreement, any component thereof, or rates referenced in the definition thereof, in each case pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, and shall have no liability to the Company, any Lender or any other person or entity for damages of any kind, including direct or indirect, special, punitive, incidental or consequential damages, costs, losses or expenses (whether in tort, contract or otherwise and whether at law or in equity), for any error or calculation of any such rate (or component thereof) provided by any such information source or service.

2.6 Releases.

(a) The Company shall have the right to optionally prepay Revolving Loans in whole at any time and in part at any time so long as no Default, Early Amortization Event or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or will result therefrom. In connection with any such prepayment or a Permitted Asset Sale, the Company may request a Release in connection therewith (i) at any time but only in connection with a Whole Loan Sale, Securitization Transaction or a Permitted Asset Sale described in clauses (a) and (b) of the definition thereof or (ii) with respect to any other Permitted Asset Sale, only after the occurrence of the first anniversary of the Closing Date, in each case subject to the terms of this Section 2.6. The Company may request a Release described in clause (i) or (ii) above on any Business Day (a “Release Date”) by delivering to the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent by not later than 3:00 p.m. New York City time at least two (2) Business Days prior to the requested Release Date, written notice substantially in the form of Exhibit I (a “Release Notice”) (which Release Notice the Administrative Agent shall promptly make available to the Lenders in accordance with its customary practice). In connection with (A) any prepayment made on or after the first anniversary of the Closing Date, or (B) any Release described in clause (i) or (ii) above made in accordance with the terms of this Section 2.6, the Company may elect to reduce the Revolving Commitments, pro rata based on each Lender’s Pro Rata Share (each such election, a “Commitment Reduction” and each such amount, a “Commitment Reduction Amount”) and such Commitment Reduction shall be effective upon the date of such prepayment or the related Release on the Release Date, as applicable. Each Release Notice shall be irrevocable and effective upon receipt;

44

 


 

provided further that if such Release Notice is delivered more than two Business Days prior to the requested Release Date, it shall be revocable, without penalty, through the close of business on the Business Day preceding such second prior Business Day. By not later than 3:00 p.m. New York City time at least one Business Day prior to the requested Release Date, the Company shall deliver to the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent, a written notice substantially in the form of Exhibit J (a “Release Letter”) (which document the Administrative Agent shall promptly make available to the Lenders in accordance with its customary practice), confirming the Release Date and setting forth certain information related to the distribution of funds on such Release Date and, if applicable, the Release of certain Receivables. Company will select no more than a pro rata share (by Outstanding Principal Balance) of Delinquent Receivables for any such Release.

(b) Required Information. Each Release Notice shall: (i) be executed by the Company; (ii) set forth the Revolving Loans to be prepaid, all accrued interest on the Revolving Loans and all accrued Class A Unused Fees and Class B Unused Fees, as applicable, and itemize any additional amounts payable on the applicable Release Date; (iii) in the event of any partial prepayment, set forth the outstanding principal balance of the Revolving Loans immediately before and immediately after giving effect to any applicable prepayment; (iv) (A) identify any Pledged Receivables subject to such Release, identify the Pledged Receivables that will remain after giving effect to any such Release and certify as to which of such remaining Pledged Receivables will be Eligible Receivables on such Release Date, (B) certify that, other than with respect to a prepayment in full, no Default, Early Amortization Event or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or result therefrom, and (C) certify that the conditions precedent to such Release set forth in this Section 2.6 have been satisfied and (v) in the event of a partial Release, attach a Borrowing Base Certificate.

(c) Pro Forma Calculations. The Borrowing Base Certificate required to be delivered with any Release Notice shall be dated and current as of the close of business on the date preceding the delivery date for such Release Notice set forth above and shall show pro forma calculations of the Reserve Account Funding Requirement, Class A Borrowing Base and Class B Borrowing Base as of the applicable Release Date (after giving effect to any Release on such date).

(d) Prepayment. On each Release Date, by 1:00 p.m. New York City time, the Company shall remit funds to the Administrative Agent in the amount of the prepayment set forth in the Release Letter and the amount of any Borrowing Base Deficiency (as determined after giving effect to any Release, prepayment and any other distributions on such date).

(e) Release of Collateral. On each Release Date, subject to the conditions precedent set forth in this Section 2.6 and upon receipt by the Administrative Agent of the amount required to be remitted by the Company on such date pursuant to Section 2.6(d), the portion of the Receivables identified for Release by the Company shall be automatically released from the Lien of the Collateral Agent and such Receivables shall no longer be “Pledged Receivables” or included in any Class A Borrowing Base or Class B Borrowing Base calculation hereunder and shall not be required to be included in any certificate or report required to be delivered hereunder. The Collateral Agent, at the expense and request of the Company, shall take (or authorize the Company, the Servicer or their respective designees to take) such actions as are reasonably necessary and appropriate to release the Lien of the Collateral Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, on such Receivables and to turn over or direct the Custodian to turn over, as applicable, to the Company or its designee any Receivable File with respect to such Receivables that are in the possession or control of the Collateral Agent or the Custodian, as applicable; provided, a copy thereof may be retained by the Collateral Agent and the Custodian in accordance with its customary document retention policies.

(f) In connection with any prepayment and Release related to a Securitization Transaction other than the “OnDeck Asset Securitization IV, LLC, Series 2022-1” transaction, Borrower

45

 


 

shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of Lenders, an amount equal to one-half percent (0.50%) of the aggregate principal amount of the Revolving Loans so prepaid (the “Prepayment Fee”); provided, further however, that to the extent Borrower or its Affiliate has offered to the Administrative Agent or an Affiliate of the Administrative Agent to be the structuring lead, lead manager or lead placement agent to the issuer thereof on reasonable market terms (for similar securitization transactions of comparable size and complexity) at the time of determination, the Prepayment Fee shall be applied towards underwriting or similar fees otherwise payable to the Administrative Agent or its Affiliates in connection therewith. Immediately upon Borrower’s or its Affiliate’s receipt of any proceeds from the Securitization Transaction, Borrower or such Affiliate shall deliver such proceeds to the Administrative Agent in their original form for application to the Obligations and, pending delivery to the Administrative Agent, such Borrower or Affiliate will hold such proceeds as agent for Agent and in trust for Agent. For the avoidance of doubt, the limitations and requirements set forth above with respect to any Securitization Transaction shall not be applicable following the end of the Revolving Commitment Period.

2.7 Fees.

(a) Company agrees to pay to each Person entitled to payment thereunder, in the amounts and at the times set forth in the Fee Letter.

(b) Except as otherwise set forth in the Fee Letter, all fees referred to in Section 2.7(a) shall be calculated by the Administrative Agent on the basis of a 360-day year and the actual number of days elapsed and shall be payable monthly in arrears on (i) each Interest Payment Date, commencing on the first such date to occur after the Closing Date, and (ii) (A) with respect to the Class A Revolving Loans, the Class A Maturity Date, and (B) with respect to the Class B Revolving Loans, the Class B Maturity Date.

2.8 Repayment on or Before Applicable Maturity Date. Company shall repay (i) the Class A Revolving Loans and (ii) all other Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations for which demand has not been made) owed to the Class A Committed Lenders under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents, in each case, in full in cash on or before the Class A Maturity Date. Company shall repay (i) the Class B Revolving Loans and (ii) all other Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations for which demand has not been made) owed to the Class B Lenders under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents, in each case, in full in cash on or before the Class B Maturity Date.

2.9 [Reserved].

2.10 Borrowing Base Deficiency. Company shall prepay the Revolving Loans within two (2) Business Days of the earlier of (i) an Authorized Officer or the Chief Financial Officer (or in each case, the equivalent thereof) of Company becoming aware that a Borrowing Base Deficiency exists or (ii) receipt by Company of notice from any Agent or any Lender that a Borrowing Base Deficiency exists, in each case in an amount equal to such Borrowing Base Deficiency, which shall be applied first, to prepay the Class A Revolving Loans as necessary to cure any Class A Borrowing Base Deficiency, and, second, to prepay the Class B Revolving Loans as necessary to cure any Class B Borrowing Base Deficiency. For the avoidance of doubt, receipt of a Monthly Servicing Report showing a Borrowing Base Deficiency shall constitute knowledge by Company thereof.

2.11 Controlled Accounts.

(a) Company shall establish and maintain cash management systems reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent, including, without limitation, with respect to blocked account arrangements. Other than a segregated trust account (the “Funding Account”) maintained at the Paying

46

 


 

Agent into which proceeds of Revolving Loans may be funded at the direction of Company, Company shall not establish or maintain a Deposit Account or Securities Account other than a Controlled Account and Company shall not, and shall cause Servicer not to deposit Collections or proceeds thereof in a Securities Account or Deposit Account which is not a Controlled Account (provided, that, inadvertent and non-reoccurring errors by Servicer in applying such Collections or proceeds that are promptly, and in any event within two (2) Business Days after Servicer or Company has (or should have had in the exercise of reasonable diligence) knowledge thereof, cured shall not be considered a breach of this covenant). All Collections and proceeds of Collateral shall be subject to an express trust for the benefit of Collateral Agent on behalf of the Secured Parties and shall be delivered to the Secured Parties for application to the Obligations or any other amount due under any other Credit Document as set forth in this Agreement.

(b) On or prior to the date of the first Funding Notice, Company shall cause to be established and maintained, (i) a segregated, non-interest bearing, trust account (or sub- accounts) in the name of Company and under the sole dominion and control of, the Administrative Agent designated as the “Collection Account” in each case bearing a designation clearly indicating that the funds and other property credited thereto are held for Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties and subject to the applicable Securities Account Control Agreement and (ii) a segregated, non-interest bearing, Deposit Account into which the proceeds of all Pledged Receivables, including by automatic debit from Receivables Obligors’ operating accounts, shall be deposited in the name of Company designated as the “Lockbox Account” as to which the Collateral Agent has sole dominion and control over such account for the benefit of the Secured Parties within the meaning of Section 9-104(a)(2) of the UCC pursuant to the Lockbox Account Control Agreement.

(ii) Company shall have identified a method reasonably satisfactory to Administrative Agent to grant Backup Servicer (and its delegates) access to the Lockbox Account when the Backup Servicer has become the Successor Servicer in accordance with the Credit Documents, for purposes of initiating ACH transfers from Receivables Obligors’ operating accounts after the Closing Date.

(iii) Company shall not establish any lockbox or lockbox arrangement without the consent of the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion, and prior to establishing any such lockbox or lockbox arrangement, Company shall cause each bank or financial institution with which it seeks to establish such a lockbox or lockbox arrangement, to enter into a control agreement with respect thereto in form and substance satisfactory to the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion.

(iv) Without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, Company shall not (A) change the general instructions given to the Servicer in respect of payments on account of Pledged Receivables to be deposited in the Lockbox System or (B) change any instructions given

47

 


 

to any bank or financial institution which in any manner redirects any Collections or proceeds thereof in the Lockbox System to any account which is not a Controlled Account.

(v) Company acknowledges and agrees that (A) the funds on deposit in the Lockbox System shall continue to be collateral security for the Obligations secured thereby, and (B) upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default or Early Amortization Event, at the election of the Requisite Lenders, the funds on deposit in the Lockbox System may be applied as provided in Section 2.12(b).

(vi) Company has directed, and will at all times hereafter direct, the Servicer to direct payment from each of the Receivables Obligors on account of Pledged Receivables directly to the Lockbox System. Company agrees (A) to instruct the Servicer to instruct each Receivables Obligor to make all payments with respect to Pledged Receivables directly to the Lockbox System and (B) promptly (and, except as set forth in the proviso to this Section 2.11(c)(vi), in no event later than two (2) Business Days following receipt) to deposit all payments received by it on account of Pledged Receivables, whether in the form of cash, checks, notes, drafts, bills of exchange, money orders or otherwise, in the Lockbox System in precisely the form in which they are received (but with any endorsements of Company necessary for deposit or collection), and until they are so deposited to hold such payments in trust for and as the property of the Collateral Agent; provided, however, that with respect to any payment received that does not contain sufficient identification of the account number to which such payment relates or cannot be processed due to an act beyond the control of the Servicer, such deposit shall be made no later than the second Business Day following the date on which such account number is identified or such payment can be processed, as applicable.

(vii) So long as no Event of Default or Early Amortization Event has occurred and shall be continuing, Company or its designee shall be permitted to direct the investment of the funds from time to time held in the Collection Account or the Reserve Account (A) in Permitted Investments and to sell or liquidate such Permitted Investments and reinvest proceeds from such sale or liquidation in other Permitted Investments (but none of the Collateral Agent, the Administrative Agent or the Lenders shall have liability whatsoever in respect of any failure by the Controlled Account Bank to do so), with all such proceeds and reinvestments to be held in the Collection Account; provided, however, that the maturity of the Permitted Investments on deposit in the Collection Account or the Reserve Account, as applicable, shall be no later than the Business Day immediately preceding the date on which such funds are required to be withdrawn therefrom pursuant to this Agreement, and provided further that any such investment and/or reinvestment in Permitted Investments during the Early Amortization Period or after the Closing Date may only be made with the consent of the Administrative Agent in its Permitted Discretion, (B) to repay the Revolving Loans in accordance with Section 2.1(b), provided, however, that (w) in order to effect any such repayment from a Controlled Account, Company shall deliver to the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent and the Class B Lenders a Controlled Account Voluntary Payment Notice in substantially the form of Exhibit G hereto no later than 12:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the Business Day prior to the date of any such repayment specifying the date of prepayment, the amount to be repaid per Class and the Controlled Account from which such repayment shall be made and certifying to the Paying Agent (upon which the Paying Agent may conclusively rely) that the conditions to repay the Revolving Loans specified in (x), (y) and (z) of this Section 2.1(c)(viii)(B) have been satisfied, (x) no more than three (3) repayments of Class A Revolving Loans pursuant to Section 2.1 may be made in any calendar week, (y) the minimum amount of any such repayment on the Revolving Loans shall be $50,000, and (z) after giving effect to each such repayment, an amount equal to not less than the sum of (i) any Reserve Account Funding Requirement and (ii) the aggregate of the pro forma amount of interest, fees and expenses projected to be due hereunder

48

 


 

and under the other Credit Documents, if any, until the next Interest Payment Date, based on the Accrued Interest Amount on such date and a projection of the interest to accrue on the Revolving Loans until the next Interest Payment Date using the same assumptions as are contained in the calculation of the Accrued Interest Amount, and the Total Utilization of Class A Revolving Loans and the Total Utilization of Class B Revolving Commitments on such date (after giving effect to such repayments), shall remain in the Controlled Accounts, or (C) so long as no Early Amortization Period has occurred and shall be continuing and the Closing Date has not occurred, to purchase additional Eligible Receivables pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Asset Purchase Agreement, provided, that a Borrowing Base Certificate (evidencing sufficient Revolving Availability after giving effect to the release of Collections and the making of any Revolving Loan being made on such date and that after giving effect to the release of Collections, no event has occurred and is continuing that constitutes, or would result from such release that would constitute, a Borrowing Base Deficiency, Default or Event of Default and certifying to the Paying Agent (upon which the Paying Agent may conclusively rely) that the conditions to purchase additional Eligible Receivables pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Asset Purchase Agreement and the conditions specified in (w), (x), (y) and (z) of this Section 2.1(c)(viii)(C) have been satisfied)) and a Borrowing Base Report shall be delivered to the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent, the Class B Lenders and the Custodian no later than 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) at least two (2) Business Days in advance of any such proposed purchase or release, (w) if such purchase of Eligible Receivables were being funded with Revolving Loans, the conditions for making such Revolving Loans on such date contained in Section 3.2(a)(iii) and Section 3.2(a)(vi) would be satisfied as of such date, and provided further, that if such withdrawal from the Collection Account does not occur simultaneously with the making of a Revolving Loan by the Lenders hereunder pursuant to the delivery of a Funding Notice, such withdrawal shall be considered a “Revolving Loan” solely for purposes of Section 2.1(c)(iv), (x) no more than three (3) borrowings of Class A Revolving Loans pursuant to Section 2.1 may be made in any calendar week, (y) no more than one (1) borrowing of Class B Revolving Loans pursuant to Section 2.1 may be made in any calendar month; provided, that the Company may make one (1) additional borrowing of Class B Revolving Loans during the last week of any calendar quarter with the written consent (to be given in their sole discretion) of the Requisite Class B Lenders and (z) after giving effect to such release, an amount equal to not less than the sum of (i) any Reserve Account Funding Requirement and (ii) the aggregate of the pro forma amount of interest, fees and expenses projected to be due hereunder and under the Credit Documents, if any, until the next Interest Payment Date, based on the Accrued Interest Amount on such date and a projection of the interest to accrue on the Revolving Loans until the next Interest Payment Date using the same assumptions as are contained in the calculation of the Accrued Interest Amount, and the Total Utilization of Class A Revolving Loans and the Total Utilization of Class B Revolving Commitments on such date shall remain in the Controlled Accounts.

(viii) All income and gains from the investment of funds in the Collection Account shall be retained in the Collection Account until each Interest Payment Date, at which time such income and gains shall be applied in accordance with Section 2.12 (or, if sooner, such income and gains until utilized for a repayment pursuant to Section 2.11(c)(vii)(B) or a purchase of additional Eligible Receivables pursuant to Section 2.11(c)(vii)(C)), as the case may be. As between Company and Collateral Agent, Company shall treat all income, gains and losses from the investment of amounts in the Collection Account as its income or loss for federal, state and local income tax purposes. The Paying Agent shall have no obligation to invest or reinvest any funds in any Controlled Accounts in the absence of timely written direction and shall not be liable for the selection of investments or for investment losses incurred thereon.

(d) Reserve Account. On or prior to the date of the first Funding Notice, Company shall cause to be established and maintained a Deposit Account in the name of Company designated as the

49

 


 

“Reserve Account” as to which the Collateral Agent has control over such account for the benefit of the Lenders within the meaning of Section 9-104(a)(2) of the UCC pursuant to the Blocked Account Control Agreement. The Reserve Account will be funded with funds available therefor pursuant to Section 2.12(a). At any time after the giving of a Termination Notice by the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent shall at the written direction of the Administrative Agent withdraw an amount from the Reserve Account required to pay Servicing Transition Expenses during the Servicing Transition Period (provided, for the avoidance of doubt, only one such withdrawal may be made from the Reserve Account to pay Servicing Transition Expenses). On the first Interest Payment Date after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default or Early Amortization Event, the Paying Agent shall at the written direction of the Administrative Agent transfer into the Collection Account for application on such Interest Payment Date in accordance with Sections 2.12(b) and 2.12(c) the amount by which the amount in the Reserve Account exceeds the excess, if any, of $100,000 over the aggregate amount previously withdrawn from the Reserve Account to pay Servicing Transition Expenses. If the first Interest Payment Date after the end of a Servicing Transition Period is during the continuance of an Event of Default or following the occurrence of an Early Amortization Event, the Paying Agent shall at the written direction of the Administrative Agent transfer into the Collection Account for application on such Interest Payment Date in accordance with Sections 2.12(b) and 2.12(c) all amounts in the Reserve Account.

Funds received after that time on such due date shall be deemed to have been paid by Company on the next Business Day (provided, that any repayment made pursuant to Section 2.11(c)(vii)(B) or any application of funds by Paying Agent pursuant to Section 2.12 on any Interest Payment Date shall be deemed for all purposes to have been made in accordance with the deadlines and payment requirements described in this Section 2.13).

(b) All payments in respect of the principal amount of any Revolving Loan (other than, unless requested by the Administrative Agent, voluntary prepayments of Revolving Loans or payments

53

 


 

pursuant to Section 2.10) shall be accompanied by payment of accrued interest on the principal amount being repaid or prepaid.

(c) Paying Agent shall promptly distribute to each Class A Lender and each Class B Lender, at such address as such Lender shall indicate in writing, the applicable Pro Rata Share of each such Lender of all payments and prepayments of principal and interest due hereunder, together with all other amounts due with respect thereto, including, without limitation, all fees payable with respect thereto, to the extent received by Paying Agent as set forth in the Monthly Servicing Report.

(d) Whenever any payment to be made hereunder shall be stated to be due on a day that is not a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension of time shall be included in the computation of the payment of interest hereunder or of the commitment fees hereunder.

(e) Except as set forth in the proviso to Section 2.13(a), Paying Agent shall deem any payment by or on behalf of Company hereunder to them that is not made in same day funds prior to 12:00 p.m. (New York City time) to be a non-conforming payment. Any such payment shall not be deemed to have been received by Paying Agent until the later of (i) the time such funds become available funds, and (ii) the applicable next Business Day. Paying Agent shall give prompt notice via electronic mail to Company and Administrative Agent if any payment is non-conforming. Any non-conforming payment may constitute or become a Default or Event of Default in accordance with the terms of Section 7.1(a). Interest shall continue to accrue on any principal as to which a non-conforming payment is made until such funds become available funds (but in no event less than the period from the date of such payment to the next succeeding applicable Business Day) at the rate otherwise applicable to such paid amount from the date such amount was due and payable until the date such amount is paid in full.

2.14 Ratable Sharing. Lenders hereby agree among themselves that, except as otherwise provided herein or in the Collateral Documents with respect to amounts realized from the exercise of rights with respect to Liens on the Collateral, if any of them shall, whether by voluntary payment (other than a voluntary prepayment of Revolving Loans made and applied in accordance with the terms hereof), through the exercise of any right of set-off or banker’s lien, by counterclaim or cross action or by the enforcement of any right under the Credit Documents, or otherwise, or as adequate protection of a deposit treated as cash collateral under the Bankruptcy Code, receive payment or reduction of a proportion of the aggregate amount of principal, interest, fees and other amounts then due and owing to such Lender hereunder or under the other Credit Documents (collectively, the “Aggregate Amounts Due” to such Lender) which is greater than such Lender would be entitled pursuant to this Agreement (after giving effect to the priority of payments determining application of payments to the Class A Lenders and the Class B Lenders, respectively), then the Lender receiving such proportionately greater payment shall (a) notify Administrative Agent, Paying Agent and each Lender of the receipt of such payment and (b) apply a portion of such payment to purchase participations (which it shall be deemed to have purchased from each seller of a participation simultaneously upon the receipt by such seller of its portion of such payment) in the Aggregate Amounts Due to the other Lenders so that the recovery of such Aggregate Amounts Due shall be shared by the applicable Lenders in proportion to the Aggregate Amounts Due to them pursuant to this Agreement; provided, if all or part of such proportionately greater payment received by such purchasing Lender is thereafter recovered from such Lender upon the bankruptcy or reorganization of Company or otherwise, those purchases shall be rescinded and the purchase prices paid for such participations shall be returned to such purchasing Lender ratably to the extent of such recovery, but without interest. Company expressly consents to the foregoing arrangement and agrees that any holder of a participation so purchased may exercise any and all rights of banker’s lien, setoff or counterclaim with respect to any and all monies owing by Company to that holder with respect thereto as fully as if that holder were owed the amount of the participation held by that holder.

2.15 Increased Costs; Capital Adequacy.

(a) Compensation for Increased Costs and Taxes. Subject to the provisions of Section 2.16 (which shall be controlling with respect to the matters covered thereby), in the event that any Affected Party shall determine (which determination shall, absent manifest error, be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto) that any law, treaty or governmental rule, regulation or order, or any change therein or in the interpretation, administration or application thereof (including the introduction of any new law, treaty or governmental rule, regulation or order), or any determination of a court or Governmental Authority, in each case that becomes effective after the Closing Date, or compliance by such Affected Party with any guideline, request or directive issued or made after the date hereof (or with respect to any Lender which becomes a Lender after the date hereof, effective after such date) by any central bank or other Governmental Authority or quasi-Governmental Authority (whether or not having the force of law): (i) subjects such Affected Party (or its applicable lending office) to any additional Tax (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and (C) Connection Income Taxes) with respect to this Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents or any of its obligations hereunder or thereunder or any payments to such Affected Party (or its applicable lending office) of principal, interest, fees or any other amount payable hereunder; (ii) imposes, modifies or holds applicable any reserve (including any marginal, emergency, supplemental, special or other reserve), special deposit, compulsory loan, FDIC or other insurance or charge or similar requirement against assets held by, or deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, or advances or loans by, or other credit extended by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of such Affected Party; or (iii) imposes any other condition (other than with respect to a Tax matter) on or affecting such Affected Party (or its applicable lending office) or its obligations hereunder; and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Affected Party of agreeing to make, making or maintaining Revolving Loans hereunder or to reduce any amount received or receivable by such Affected Party (or its applicable lending office) with respect thereto; then, in any such case, if such Affected Party deems such change to be material, Company shall promptly pay to such Affected Party, upon receipt of the statement referred to in the next sentence, such additional amount or amounts (in the form of an increased rate of, or a different method of calculating, interest or otherwise as such Affected Party in its sole discretion shall determine) as may be necessary to compensate such Affected Party for any such increased cost or reduction in amounts received or receivable hereunder and any reasonable expenses related thereto. Such Affected Party shall deliver to Company (with a copy to Administrative Agent and Paying Agent) a written statement, setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for calculating the additional amounts owed to such Affected Party under this Section 2.15(a), which statement shall be conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto absent manifest error.

(b) Capital Adequacy Adjustment. In the event that any Affected Party shall have determined in its sole discretion (which determination shall, absent manifest effort, be final and conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto) that (i) the adoption, effectiveness, phase-in or applicability of any law, rule or regulation (or any provision thereof) regarding capital adequacy, or any change therein or in the interpretation or administration thereof by any Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or (ii) compliance by any Affected Party (or its applicable lending office) or any company controlling such Affected Party with any guideline, request or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) of any such Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency, in each case after the Closing Date, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on the capital of such Affected Party or any company controlling such Affected Party as a consequence of, or with reference to, such Affected Party’s Revolving Loans or Revolving Commitments, or participations therein or other obligations hereunder with respect to the Revolving Loans to a level below that which such Affected Party or such controlling company could have achieved but for such adoption, effectiveness, phase-in, applicability, change or compliance (taking into consideration the policies of such Affected Party or such controlling company with regard to capital adequacy), then from time to time, within five (5) Business Days after receipt by Company from such

55

 


 

Affected Party of the statement referred to in the next sentence, Company shall pay to such Affected Party such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Affected Party or such controlling company on an after-tax basis for such reduction. Such Affected Party shall deliver to Company (with a copy to Administrative Agent and Paying Agent) a written statement, setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for calculating the additional amounts owed to such Affected Party under this Section 2.15(b), which statement shall be conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto absent manifest error. For the avoidance of doubt, subsections (i) and (ii) of this Section 2.15(b) shall apply, without limitation, to all requests, rules, guidelines or directives concerning liquidity and capital adequacy issued by any Governmental Authority (x) under or in connection with the implementation of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, as amended to the date hereof and from time to time hereafter, and any successor statute and (y) in connection with the implementation of the recommendations of the Bank for International Settlements or the Basel Committee on Banking Regulations and Supervisory Practices (or any successor or similar authority), regardless of the date adopted, issued, promulgated or implemented.

(c) Delay in Requests. Failure or delay on the part of any Affected Party to demand compensation pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.15 shall not constitute a waiver of such Affected Party’s right to demand such compensation, provided that Company shall not be required to compensate an Affected Party pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.15 for any increased costs incurred or reductions suffered more than one hundred twenty (120) days prior to the date that such Affected Party notifies Company of the matters giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Affected Party’s intention to claim compensation therefor.

(b) Withholding of Taxes. If Company or any other Person is required by law to make any deduction or withholding on account of any such Tax from any sum paid or payable by Company to an Affected Party under any of the Credit Documents: (i) Company shall notify Paying Agent of any such requirement or any change in any such requirement as soon as Company becomes aware of it; (ii) Company shall, or shall instruct the Paying Agent in writing to, make such deduction or withholding and pay any such Tax to the relevant Governmental Authority before the date on which penalties attach thereto, such payment to be made (if the liability to pay is imposed on Company) for its own account or (if that liability is imposed on Paying Agent or such Affected Party, as the case may be) on behalf of and in the name of Paying Agent or such Affected Party; (iii) if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, the sum payable by Company in respect of which the relevant deduction, withholding or payment is required shall be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that, after the making of that deduction, withholding or payment (and any withholdings imposed on additional amounts payable under this paragraph), such Affected Party receives on the due date a sum equal to what it would have received had no such deduction, withholding or payment been required or made; and (iv) within thirty (30) days after paying any sum from which it is required by law to make any deduction or withholding, and within thirty (30) days after the due date of payment of any Tax which it is required by clause (ii) above to pay, Company shall deliver evidence satisfactory to the other Affected Parties of such deduction, withholding or payment and of the remittance thereof to the relevant taxing or other authority. Each party hereto agrees that the Paying Agent and Company have the right to withhold on payments (without any corresponding gross-up) where a party fails to comply with the documentation requirements set forth in Section 2.16(d). Upon request from the Paying Agent, the

56

A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to Company by an Affected Party (with a copy to the Paying Agent), shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(d) Evidence of Exemption or Reduced Rate From U.S. Withholding Tax.

(i) Each Lender and the Administrative Agent that is not a United States Person (as such term is defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the Internal Revenue Code) for U.S. federal income tax purposes (a “Non-US Lender”) shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to Paying Agent and the Company, on or prior to the Closing Date (in the case of each Lender listed on the signature pages hereof on the Closing Date) or on or prior to the date of the Assignment Agreement pursuant to which it becomes a Lender (in the case of each other Lender), and at such other times as may be necessary in the determination of Company or Paying Agent (each in the reasonable exercise of its discretion), (A) two original copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, W-8BEN-E, W-8ECI or W-8IMY, as applicable (with appropriate attachments) (or any successor forms), properly completed and duly executed by the Administrative Agent or such Lender, and such other documentation required under the Internal Revenue Code and reasonably requested by Company or the Paying Agent to establish that the Administrative Agent or such Lender is not subject to, or is eligible for a reduction in the rate of, deduction or withholding of United States federal income tax with respect to any payments to Administrative Agent or such Lender of principal, interest, fees or other amounts payable under any of the Credit Documents, or (B) if the Administrative Agent or such Lender is not a “bank” or other Person described in Section 881(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and cannot deliver Internal Revenue Service Form W-8IMY or W-8ECI pursuant to clause (A) above and is relying on the so called “portfolio interest exception”, a Certificate Regarding Non-Bank Status together with two original copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, as applicable (or any successor form), properly completed and duly executed by the Administrative Agent or such Lender, and such other documentation required under the Internal Revenue Code and reasonably requested by Company or the Paying Agent to establish that the Administrative Agent or such Lender is not subject, or is eligible for a reduction in the rate of, to deduction or withholding of United States federal income tax with respect to any payments to the Administrative Agent or such Lender of interest payable under any of the Credit Documents. The Administrative Agent and each Lender required to deliver any forms, certificates or other evidence with respect to United States federal income tax withholding matters pursuant to this Section 2.16(d)(i) or Section 2.16(d)(ii) hereby agrees, from time to time after the initial delivery by the Administrative Agent or such Lender of such forms, certificates or other evidence, whenever a lapse in time or change in circumstances renders such forms, certificates or other evidence obsolete or inaccurate in any material respect, that the Administrative Agent or such Lender shall promptly deliver to Company and the Paying Agent two new original copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, W-8BEN-E, W-8IMY, or W-8ECI, or, if relying on the “portfolio interest exception”, a Certificate Regarding Non- Bank Status and two original copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W- 8BEN-E, as applicable (or any successor form), as the case may be, properly completed and duly executed by the Administrative Agent or such Lender, and such other documentation required under the Internal

57

 


 

Revenue Code and reasonably requested by Company or Paying Agent to confirm or establish that the Administrative Agent or such Lender is not subject to, or is eligible for a reduction in the rate of, deduction or withholding of United States federal income tax with respect to payments to the Administrative Agent or such Lender under the Credit Documents, or notify Paying Agent and Company of its inability to deliver any such forms, certificates or other evidence.

(ii) Any Lender and the Administrative Agent that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to Company and the Paying Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement on the Closing Date or pursuant to an Assignment Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of Company or the Paying Agent), executed originals of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is a U.S. Person and exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding tax.

(iii) If a payment made to the Administrative Agent or a Lender under any Credit Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if the Administrative Agent or such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Internal Revenue Code, as applicable), the Administrative Agent or such Lender shall deliver to Company and the Paying Agent at the time or times reasonably requested by Company or the Paying Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Internal Revenue Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by Company or the Paying Agent as may be necessary for Company and the Paying Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that the Administrative Agent or such Lender has complied with the Administrative Agent’s or such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this Section 2.16(d)(iii), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement

(iv) If the Administrative Agent, acting as an agent for the account of others, is not a U.S. person, it shall deliver to the Paying Agent and Company on or prior to the date on which it becomes the Administrative Agent under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Paying Agent or Company) (i) an executed copy of IRS Form W-8ECI with respect to any amounts payable to the Administrative Agent for its own account and (ii) two executed copies of Form W-8IMY certifying that it is a “U.S. branch” and that the payments it receives for the account of others are not effectively connected with the conduct of its trade or business within the United States and that it is using such form as evidence of its agreement with Company to be treated as a United States person with respect to such payments (and Company and the Administrative Agent agree to so treat the Administrative Agent as a United States person with respect to such payments as contemplated by Section 1.1441-1(b)(2)(iv) of the United States Treasury Regulations).

(e) Payment of Other Taxes by the Company. The Company shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes.

(f) Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by

58

 


 

the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (f) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (f), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (f) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This paragraph shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.

2.17 Obligation to Mitigate. Each Lender agrees that, as promptly as practicable after the officer of such Lender responsible for administering its Revolving Loans becomes aware of the occurrence of an event or the existence of a condition that would entitle such Lender to receive payments under Section 2.15 and/or Section 2.16, it will, to the extent not inconsistent with the internal policies of such Lender and any applicable legal or regulatory restrictions, use reasonable efforts to (a) make, issue, fund or maintain its Credit Extensions through another office of such Lender, or (b) take such other measures as such Lender may deem reasonable, if as a result thereof the additional amounts which would otherwise be required to be paid to such Lender pursuant to 2.15 and/or 2.16 would be materially reduced and if, as determined by such Lender in its sole discretion, the making, issuing, funding or maintaining of such Revolving Commitments or Revolving Loans through such other office or in accordance with such other measures, as the case may be, would not otherwise adversely affect such Revolving Commitments or Revolving Loans or the interests of such Lender; provided, such Lender will not be obligated to utilize such other office pursuant to this Section 2.17 unless Company agrees to pay all reasonable and incremental expenses incurred by such Lender as a result of utilizing such other office as described above. A certificate as to the amount of any such expenses payable by Company pursuant to this Section 2.17 (setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for requesting such amount) submitted by such Lender to Company (with a copy to Administrative Agent) shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Company agrees to reimburse the Lender its expenses associated with complying with this Section 2.17.

2.18 Defaulting Lenders. Anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, in the event that other than at the direction or request of any regulatory agency or authority, any Lender defaults (in each case, a “Defaulting Lender”) in its obligation to fund (a “Funding Default”) any Revolving Loan (in each case, a “Defaulted Loan”), then (a) during any Default Period with respect to such Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender shall be deemed not to be a “Lender” for purposes of voting on any matters (including the granting of any consents or waivers) with respect to any of the Credit Documents; (b) to the extent permitted by applicable law, until such time as the Default Excess, if any, with respect to such Defaulting Lender shall have been reduced to zero, (i) any voluntary prepayment of the Revolving Loans shall be applied to the Revolving Loans of other Lenders of the applicable Class as if such Defaulting Lender had no Revolving Loans outstanding and the Revolving Exposure of such Defaulting Lender were zero, and (ii) any mandatory prepayment of the Revolving Loans of the applicable Class shall be applied to the Revolving Loans of other Lenders (but not to the Revolving Loans of such Defaulting Lender) of such Class as if such Defaulting Lender had funded all Defaulted Loans of such Class of such Defaulting Lender, it being understood and agreed that Company shall be entitled to retain any portion of any mandatory prepayment of the Revolving Loans of the applicable Class that is not paid to such Defaulting Lender solely as a result of the operation of the provisions of this clause (b); and (c) the Total Utilization of Class A Revolving Commitments or the Total Utilization of Class B Revolving Commitments, as applicable, as at any date of determination shall be calculated as if such Defaulting Lender had funded all Defaulted Loans of such Defaulting Lender. No Revolving Commitment of any Lender shall be increased or otherwise

59

 


 

affected, and, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Section 2.18, performance by Company of its obligations hereunder and the other Credit Documents shall not be excused or otherwise modified as a result of any Funding Default or the operation of this Section 2.18. The rights and remedies against a Defaulting Lender under this Section 2.18 are in addition to other rights and remedies which Company may have against such Defaulting Lender with respect to any Funding Default and which Administrative Agent or any Lender may have against such Defaulting Lender with respect to any Funding Default or violation of Section 8.5(c).

2.19 Removal or Replacement of a Lender. Anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, in the event that: (a) (i) any Lender (an “Increased-Cost Lender”) shall give notice to Company that such Lender is entitled to receive payments under Section 2.15 and/or Section 2.16, (ii) the circumstances which entitle such Lender to receive such payments shall remain in effect, and (iii) such Lender shall fail to withdraw such notice within five (5) Business Days after Company’s request for such withdrawal; or (b) (i) in the event that other than at the direction or request of any regulatory agency or authority, any Lender (other than a Class A Conduit Lender) defaults (in each case, a “Defaulting Lender”) in its obligation to fund (a “Funding Default”) any committed portion of any request for a Revolving Loan (in each case, a “Defaulted Loan”) other than as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s good faith determination that one or more conditions to funding have not been satisfied hereunder, (ii) the Default Period for such Defaulting Lender shall remain in effect, and (iii) such Defaulting Lender shall fail to cure the default as a result of which it has become a Defaulting Lender within five (5) Business Days after Company’s request that it cure such default; or (c) in connection with any proposed amendment, modification, termination, waiver or consent with respect to any of the provisions hereof as contemplated by Section 9.5(b), the consent of Administrative Agent and Requisite Lenders shall have been obtained but the consent of one or more of such other Lenders (each a “Non-Consenting Lender”) whose consent is required shall not have been obtained and no Default, Early Amortization Event or Event of Default shall then exist; then, with respect to each such Increased-Cost Lender, Defaulting Lender or Non-Consenting Lender (the “Terminated Lender”), Company may, by giving written notice to any Terminated Lender and the Administrative Agent of its election to do so, elect to cause such Terminated Lender (and such Terminated Lender hereby irrevocably agrees) to assign (without recourse) its outstanding Revolving Loans and its Revolving Commitments, if any, in full to one or more Eligible Assignees identified by Company (each a “Replacement Lender”) in accordance with the provisions of Section 9.6; provided, (1) on the date of such assignment, the Replacement Lender shall pay to the Terminated Lender an amount equal to the sum of (A) an amount equal to the principal of, and all accrued interest on, all outstanding Revolving Loans of the Terminated Lender and, if applicable, such other Lenders, and (B) an amount equal to all accrued, but theretofore unpaid fees owing to such Terminated Lender and, if applicable, such other Lenders, pursuant to Section 2.7; (2) on the date of such assignment, Company shall pay any amounts payable to such Terminated Lender pursuant to Section 2.15 and/or Section 2.16 and any other amounts due to such Terminated Lender (and all expenses and costs of the Terminating Lender associated with compliance with this Section 2.19); (3) in the event such Terminated Lender is an Increased-Cost Lender, such assignment will result in a reduction in any claims for payments under Section 2.15 and/or Section 2.16, as applicable, (4) such assignment does not conflict with applicable law; and (5) in the event such Terminated Lender is a Non-Consenting Lender, each Replacement Lender shall consent, at the time of such assignment, to each matter in respect of which such Terminated Lender was a Non-Consenting Lender. Upon the prepayment of all amounts owing to any Terminated Lender and the termination of such Terminated Lender’s Revolving Commitments, such Terminated Lender shall no longer constitute a “Lender” for purposes hereof; provided, any rights of such Terminated Lender to indemnification hereunder shall survive as to such Terminated Lender.

2.20 The Paying Agent. (a)The Lenders hereby appoint Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas as the initial Paying Agent. All payments of amounts due and payable in respect of the Obligations that are to be made from amounts withdrawn from the Collection Account pursuant to Section

All such amounts shall be payable in accordance with Section 2.12 and such indemnity shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the resignation or removal of the Paying Agent.

61

The receipt and/or delivery of reports and other information under this Agreement by the Paying Agent, and any publicly-available information, shall not constitute notice or actual or constructive knowledge of any such event or information, including any Default or Event of Default contained therein.

(h) The Paying Agent shall not be required to expend or risk its own funds or otherwise incur financial liability in the performance of any of its duties hereunder, or in the exercise of any of its rights or powers, if there shall be reasonable grounds for believing that the repayment of such funds or adequate indemnity against such risk or liability shall not be reasonably assured to it, and none of the provisions contained in this Agreement shall in any event require the Paying Agent to perform, or be responsible for the manner of performance of, any of the obligations of the Company under this Agreement.

(i) The Paying Agent may conclusively rely and shall be protected in acting or refraining from acting upon any resolution, certificate of an Authorized Officer, any Monthly Servicing Report, certificate of auditors or any other certificate, statement, instrument, opinion, report, notice, request, consent, order, appraisal, bond or other paper or document reasonably believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or presented by the proper party or parties.

(j) The Paying Agent may consult with counsel of its choice with regard to legal questions arising out of or in connection with this Agreement and the advice or opinion of such counsel shall be full and complete authorization and protection in respect of any action taken, omitted or suffered by the Paying Agent in good faith and in accordance therewith.

The reasonable expense of every such examination shall be paid by the Company or, if paid by the Paying Agent, shall be reimbursed by the Company to the extent of funds available therefor pursuant to Section 2.12.

(m) The Paying Agent shall not be responsible for the acts or omissions of the Administrative Agent, the Company, the Servicer, any Agent, any Lender or any other Person, and may assume compliance by such parties with their obligations, unless a Responsible Officer of the Paying Agent shall have received written notice to the contrary.

The Paying Agent may rely upon the validity of documents delivered to it, without investigation as to their authenticity or legal effectiveness, and the parties to this Agreement will hold the Paying Agent harmless from any claims that may arise or be asserted against the Paying Agent because of the invalidity of any such documents or their failure to fulfill their intended purpose.

(q) The Paying Agent is authorized, in its sole discretion, to disregard any and all notices or instructions given by any other party hereto or by any other person, firm or corporation, except only such notices or instructions as are herein provided for and orders or process of any court entered or issued with or without jurisdiction.

The predecessor Paying Agent shall upon payment of its fees and expenses deliver to the successor Paying Agent all documents and statements and monies held by it under this Agreement; and the Company and the predecessor Paying Agent shall execute and deliver such instruments and do such other things as may reasonably be requested for fully and certainly vesting and confirming in the successor Paying Agent all such rights, powers, duties, and obligations.

The Paying Agent shall have no liability in respect of losses incurred as a result of the liquidation of any investment prior to its stated maturity or the failure of the Company to provide timely written investment direction.

(v) If the Paying Agent shall be uncertain as to its duties or rights hereunder or under any other Credit Documents or shall receive instructions from any of the parties hereto pursuant to this Agreement which, in the reasonable opinion of the Paying Agent, are in conflict with any of the provisions of this Agreement or another Credit Document to which it is a party, the Paying Agent shall be entitled (without incurring any liability therefor to the Company or any other Person) to (i) consult with counsel of its choosing and act or refrain from acting based on the advice of such counsel and (ii) refrain from taking any action until it shall be directed otherwise in writing by all of the parties hereto or by final order of a court of competent jurisdiction.

(w) The Paying Agent shall incur no liability nor be responsible to Company or any other Person for delays or failures in performance resulting from acts beyond its control that significantly and adversely affect the Paying Agent’s ability to perform with respect to this Agreement.

(x) The Paying Agent may execute any of its powers hereunder or perform any duties hereunder either directly or by or through agents or attorneys, provided that the Paying Agent shall remain obligated and liable for the administration of its duties hereunder, to the same extent and under the same terms and conditions as if it alone were acting as Paying Agent.

(y) The Paying Agent shall not be required to take any action that is not in accordance with applicable law. The right of the Paying Agent to perform any permissive or discretionary act enumerated in this Agreement or any related document shall not be construed as a duty.

(z) Knowledge of the Paying Agent shall not be attributed or imputed to Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas’ other roles in the transaction and knowledge of the Custodian, Collateral Agent or Controlled Account Bank shall not be attributed or imputed to the Paying Agent (other than those where the roles are performed by the same group or division within Deutsche Bank Trust Company

(bb) The Lenders hereby authorize and direct the Paying Agent to execute and deliver the Undertakings Agreement.

(cc) The Paying Agent shall have no (i) responsibility or liability for determining or verifying the Base Rate or Benchmark and shall be entitled to rely upon any designation of such a rate (and any modifier) by the Administrative Agent and (ii) liability for any failure or delay in performing its duties under this Agreement or other Credit Document as a result of the unavailability of the Base Rate, Benchmark or any other reference rate described herein, including as a result of any inability, delay, error or inaccuracy on the part of any other Person.

Without the prior consent of the Administrative Agent and the Requisite Class B Lenders, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, the Company shall not agree to, and shall cause Holdings and On Deck not to, (a) make any change to (i) the forms of Business Loan and Security Agreement, Business Loan and Security Agreement Supplement and Loan Summary used to originate Receivables from the form provided to the Administrative Agent prior to the Closing Date, or (ii) the form of Authorization Agreement for Direct Deposit (ACH Credit) and Direct Payments (ACH Debit) used in connection with the origination of Receivables in substantially the form provided to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the Closing Date that, in any such case, would reasonably be expected to be materially adverse to the Lenders, or (b) make any change to the Underwriting Policies that would reasonably be expected to be materially adverse to the Lenders (provided, that any change to the Underwriting Policies which (A) has the effect of modifying the Eligibility Criteria or (B) changes the calculation of the Class A Borrowing Base and the Class B Borrowing Base shall be deemed to be materially adverse to the Lenders for purposes of this Section 6.17).

6.18 Receivable Program Agreements. The Company shall cause each Seller to (a) perform and comply with its obligations under the Receivables Program Agreements and (b) enforce the rights and remedies afforded to it against the Receivables Account Bank under the Receivables Program Agreements, except where the failure to do so, individually or in the aggregate, would not reasonably be expected to result in an Adverse Effect.

6.19 Hedging Covenant.

(a) Hedge Trigger Event. Within five (5) Business Days of the occurrence of a Hedge Trigger Event (such five (5) Business Days, the “Hedge Notice Period”), the Company shall elect to either (in each case provided such Hedge Trigger Event is still continuing) (i) within thirty (30) days of the occurrence of such Hedge Trigger Event, enter into a Qualified Hedging Transaction pursuant to a Qualified Hedging Agreement to hedge interest rate risk for a notional amount equal to or about the aggregate principal balance of Revolving Loans (or such other amount reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent, including pursuant to an amortization table to reflect projected changes in the aggregate principal balance of Revolving Loans) and a strike rate as agreed to by the Administrative Agent and the Company (but not to exceed 3.00%) or (ii) in lieu of entering into a Qualified Hedging Transaction, the Company may elect to effect an Advance Rate Stepdown upon written notice thereof to the Administrative Agent; provided, however, that the Administrative Agent shall not require any new Qualified Hedging Transaction to be obtained by the Company at any time if the aggregate notional amount of such new Qualified Hedging Transaction and all existing Qualified Hedging Transactions (if any) at such time would exceed the aggregate principal balance of Revolving Loans at such time. During the Hedge Notice Period, Lenders shall not be obligated to grant any Credit Extension.

(b) No Other Hedge. The Company shall not enter into any Hedging Transaction or execute any Hedging Agreement other than pursuant to subsection (a) of this Section without the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent.
