Article II

The Loan Facility
    Section 2.1.    Funding of the Revolving Loans. (a)(i) On the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth (including, without limitation, the conditions set forth in Sections 3.1 and 3.2), the Borrower may, at its option, on the Closing Date and on any Funding Date request an advance of a loan or loans (individually a “Revolving Loan” and collectively the “Revolving Loans”) pursuant to Section 2.3. On the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth (including, without limitation, the conditions set forth in Section 3.1 and 3.2), the Lender agrees to make Revolving Loans to the Borrower on a revolving basis from time to time as requested by the Borrower during the period from the date hereof to but not including the Termination Date. Under no circumstances shall the Lender make a Revolving Loan if, after giving effect to the Funding of such Revolving Loan, the Aggregate Loan Amount would exceed the lesser of (i) the Commitment and (ii) the Borrowing Base. As provided in Section 2.3 and subject to Section 2.10(e), each Funding of Revolving Loans shall consist of Eurodollar Loans. Upon the occurrence of an Amortization Event or the declaration of the Termination Date, the Borrower may not request and the Lender shall not be required to effect any Funding.
    (b)    The Borrower may, within 180 days, but no later than 90 days, prior to the then existing Commitment Termination Date, by written notice to the Deal Agent and the Lender, make written request for the Lender to extend the Commitment Termination Date for an additional period as specified by the Borrower. The Lender shall make a determination, in its sole discretion, not less than 30 days prior to the then applicable Commitment Termination Date as to whether or not it will agree to extend the Commitment Termination Date; provided, however, that the failure of the Lender, or the Deal Agent on its behalf, to make a timely response to the Borrower’s request for extension of the Commitment Termination Date shall be deemed to constitute a refusal by the Lender to extend the Commitment Termination Date. If the Lender agrees to extend the Commitment Termination Date in accordance with the Borrower’s request made pursuant to the first sentence of this clause (b), the Commitment Termination Date then in effect shall be extended to the date that is the last day of the additional time period
- 33 -


specified by Borrower pursuant to the first sentence of this clause (b) or, if such day is not a Business Day, the next preceding Business Day.
    (c)    The Note. (i) The Borrower’s obligation to pay the principal of and interest on all Revolving Loans advanced by the Lender pursuant to the Fundings shall be evidenced by a variable funding note of the Borrower in favor of the Lender (the “Note”) which shall: (1) be dated the Closing Date; (2) be in the stated principal amount equal to the Commitment; (3) bear interest as provided therein; (4) be payable to the order of the Lender; and (5) be substantially in the form of Exhibit G hereto, with blanks appropriately completed in conformity herewith. The Lender may, and is hereby authorized to, make a notation on the schedule attached to the Note of the date and the amount of the Fundings and the date and amount of the payment of principal thereon, and prior to any transfer of the Note, the Lender shall endorse the outstanding principal amount of the Note on the schedule attached thereto; provided, however, that failure to make such notation shall not adversely affect the Lender’s rights with respect to the Note.
    (ii)    Although the Note shall be dated the Closing Date, interest in respect thereof shall be payable only for the periods during which amounts are outstanding thereunder. In addition, although the stated principal amount of the Note shall be equal to the Commitment, the Note shall be enforceable with respect to the Borrower’s obligation to pay the principal thereof only to the extent of the unpaid Aggregate Loan Amount at the time such enforcement shall be sought.
    Section 2.2.    Grant of Security Interest; Acceptance by Collateral Agent. (a)(i) As security for the prompt and complete payment of the Note and the performance of all of the Borrower’s obligations under the Note, this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents, the Borrower hereby grants to the Collateral Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, without recourse except as expressly provided herein, a security interest in and continuing Lien on all right, title, and interest of the Borrower in the following property of the Borrower (whether now owned or hereafter created, acquired or arising, and wherever located):
Accounts, Chattel Paper, Instruments (including Promissory Notes), Documents, General Intangibles (including Payment Intangibles and Software, patents, trademarks, tradestyles, copyrights, and all other intellectual property rights, including all applications, registration, and licenses therefor, and all goodwill of the business connected therewith or represented thereby), Letter-of-Credit Rights, Supporting Obligations, Deposit Accounts, Investment Property (including certificated and uncertificated Securities, Securities Accounts, Security Entitlements, Commodity Accounts, and Commodity Contracts), Inventory, Equipment (including all software, whether or not the same constitutes embedded software, used in the operation thereof),    Commercial Tort Claims, Rights to merchandise and other Goods (including rights to returned or repossessed Goods and rights of stoppage in transit) which are represented by, arise from, or relate to any of the foregoing, Monies, personal property, and interests in personal property of the Debtor of any kind or description now held by the Secured Party or at any time hereafter transferred or delivered to, or coming into the possession, custody, or control of, the Secured Party, or any agent or affiliate of the Secured Party, whether expressly as collateral security or for any other purpose (whether for safekeeping, custody, collection or otherwise), and all dividends and distributions on or
- 34 -


other rights in connection with any such property, Supporting evidence and documents relating to any of the above-described property, including, without limitation, computer programs, disks, tapes and related electronic data processing media, and all rights of the Debtor to retrieve the same from third parties, written applications, credit information, account cards, payment records, correspondence, delivery and installation certificates, invoice copies, delivery receipts, notes, and other evidences of indebtedness, insurance certificates and the like, together with all books of account, ledgers, and cabinets in which the same are reflected or maintained, Accessions and additions to, and substitutions and replacements of, any and all of the foregoing, and Proceeds and products of the foregoing, and all insurance of the foregoing and proceeds thereof (each of the foregoing terms as used in this paragraph which are defined in the UCC shall have the same meanings herein as such terms are defined in the UCC in New York, unless this Agreement shall otherwise specifically provide); including, without limitation, all of its right, title and interest to: (x) the Loans, and all monies due or to become due in payment thereupon on and after the related Cut-Off Date; (y) all Related Security; and (z) all income and Proceeds of the foregoing (all of the foregoing property of the Borrower described in this Section 2.2(a)(i) collectively referred to herein as the “Collateral”). The foregoing pledge does not constitute an assumption by the Collateral Agent of any obligations of the Borrower to Obligors or any other Person in connection with the Collateral or under any agreement or instrument relating to the Collateral, including, without limitation, any obligation to make future advances to or on behalf of such Obligors.
    (ii)    In connection with such grant, the Borrower agrees to record and file, or cause to be recorded or filed, at its own expense, financing statements with respect to the Collateral now existing and hereafter created meeting the requirements of applicable state law in such manner and in such jurisdictions as are necessary to perfect the first priority security interest of the Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties in the Collateral, and to deliver a file-stamped copy of such financing statements or other evidence of such filing to the Collateral Agent and the Deal Agent on or prior to each Funding Date. Any such financing statement may describe as the collateral covered thereby “all of the debtor’s personal property or assets” or words to that effect, notwithstanding that such wording may be broader in scope than the Collateral as described in this Agreement. In addition, the Borrower and the Servicer agree to clearly and unambiguously mark their respective general ledgers and all accounting records and documents and all computer tapes and records to show that the Collateral, including that portion of the Collateral consisting of the Dealer Agreements listed on Schedule V hereto (and each addendum thereto), the Loans and the related Contracts and the rights to payment under the related Dealer Agreements, has been pledged to the Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties hereunder.
    (iii)    In connection with such pledge, the Borrower (or the Servicer on its behalf) agrees to deliver to the Collateral Agent on the Closing Date or any Funding Date on which new Pools or Purchased Loans are pledged to the Collateral Agent, as the case may be, one or more computer files or microfiche lists containing true and complete lists of all applicable Dealer Agreements, Pools and Loans securing the payment of the Note and amounts due under the Transaction Documents and all of the Borrower’s obligations under the Note and the Transaction
- 35 -


Documents as of the Closing Date or Funding Date, and all Contracts securing all such Loans, identified by, as applicable, account number, dealer number and pool number as of the end of the Collection Period immediately preceding such date. Such file shall be marked as Schedule V hereto or as an addendum thereto, shall be delivered to the Collateral Agent as confidential and proprietary, and such Schedule V and each addendum thereto are hereby incorporated into and made a part of this Agreement. Such Schedule V shall be supplemented and updated on the date of each Incremental Funding in the Revolving Period to include all Loans and Contracts pledged on the date of each such date so that, on each such date, the Collateral Agent will have a Schedule V that describes all Loans pledged by the Borrower to the Collateral Agent hereunder on or prior to said date of Incremental Funding, any related Dealer Agreements, Purchase Agreements and all Contracts securing or evidencing such Loans (other than those that have been released from the Collateral and those Dealer Loans that have been deemed to be satisfied pursuant to Section 6.15(b) hereto). Such updated Schedule V shall be deemed to replace any existing Schedule V as of the date such updated Schedule V is provided in accordance with this Section 2.2(a)(iii). Furthermore, Schedule V hereto shall be deemed to be supplemented on each date of Dealer Collections Purchase by the list set forth under Section 6.15(c). For the avoidance of doubt, any incorrect or unintended deletions or omissions from the previous version of Schedule V shall not be effective to release the rights of the Collateral Agent in such Collateral except upon compliance with the procedures and requirements of Section 2.13, Section 4.5 or Section 8.2 hereof or Section 6.1 of the Contribution Agreement.
    (iv)    In connection with such pledge, each of the Borrower, Credit Acceptance and the Servicer also agrees, within 180 days of the Closing Date or relevant Funding Date, as the case may be, to clearly mark at least 98% of the Contracts or Contract folders evidenced in a tangible medium and securing a Loan with the following legend: “This Agreement has been pledged to Flagstar Bank, fsb as Collateral Agent for the benefit of certain Secured Parties”.
    (b)    The Collateral Agent hereby acknowledges its acceptance, on behalf of the Secured Parties, of the pledge by the Borrower of the Loans and all other Collateral. The Collateral Agent further acknowledges that, prior to or simultaneously with the execution and delivery of this Agreement, the Borrower delivered to the Collateral Agent the computer file or microfiche list represented by the Borrower to be the computer file or microfiche list described in Section 2.2(a)(iii).
    (c)    The Collateral Agent hereby agrees not to disclose to any Person (including any Secured Party) any of the account numbers or other information contained in the computer files or microfiche lists delivered to the Collateral Agent by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.2(a)(iii), except as is required in connection with the performance of its duties hereunder or under any other provision of the Transaction Documents or in enforcing the rights of the Secured Parties or to a Successor Servicer; provided, however, that notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the Collateral Agent may reply to a request from any Person for a list of Loans, Dealer Agreements, Contracts or other information referred to in any financing statement. The Collateral Agent agrees to take such measures as shall be necessary or reasonably requested by the Borrower to protect and maintain the security and confidentiality of such information. The Collateral Agent shall provide the Borrower with written notice five (5) Business Days prior to any disclosure pursuant to this Section 2.2(c).
- 36 -


    Section 2.3.    Procedures for Funding of Revolving Loans. (a) The Borrower shall give notice to the Deal Agent by no later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) at least two (2) Business Days before the date on which the Borrower requests the Lender to advance a Funding of Eurodollar Loans. The Revolving Loans included in each Funding shall bear interest at the Adjusted LIBOR. The Borrower shall give all such Funding Notices to the Deal Agent (with a copy to the Lender) by telephone, telecopy, or other telecommunication device acceptable to the Deal Agent (which notice shall be irrevocable once given). Each Funding Notice shall: (i) specify the desired amount of such Funding which amount must (a) in the case of the initial funding hereunder (the “Initial Funding”) be in a minimum amount of $1,000,000, and (b) in the case of any Incremental Funding, be in an amount equal to $1,000,000 or an integral multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof, (ii) specify the date of such Funding, and (iii) include a representation that all conditions precedent for a Funding described in Article III hereof have been met. Each Funding Notice shall be irrevocable. No Funding of Eurodollar Loans shall be advanced, continued, or created by conversion if any Unmatured Termination Event or Termination Event then exists. The Borrower agrees that the Deal Agent and the Lender may rely on any such telephonic, telecopy or other telecommunication notice given by any person the Deal Agent or the Lender in good faith believes is an authorized representative of the Borrower without the necessity of independent investigation, and in the event any such notice by telephone conflicts with any written confirmation such telephonic notice shall govern if the Deal Agent or the Lender has acted in reliance thereon.
    (b)    On the Funding Date, the Lender shall, upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions set forth in Article III, make available to the Borrower in same day funds, no later than 3:00 p.m. (New York City time), at such bank or other location reasonably designated by Borrower in its Funding Notice given pursuant to this Section 2.3, an amount equal to the lesser of (A) the amount requested by the Borrower for such Revolving Loan or (B) the excess of the Commitment over the Aggregate Loan Amount then outstanding.
    (c)    In no event shall the Lender be required on any date to make any Funding which would result in the Aggregate Loan Amount, determined after giving effect to such Funding, exceeding its Commitment.
    Section 2.4.    Determination of Interest.
    (a)    Eurodollar Loans. Each Eurodollar Loan made or maintained by a Lender shall bear interest during each Interest Period it is outstanding (computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and actual days elapsed) on the unpaid principal amount thereof from the date such Revolving Loan is advanced or continued, or created by conversion from a Base Rate Loan, until maturity (whether by acceleration or otherwise) at a rate per annum equal to the Adjusted LIBOR applicable for such Interest Period, payable by the Borrower on each Payment Date and at maturity (whether by acceleration or otherwise).
    (b)    Base Rate Loans. Each Base Rate Loan made or maintained by a Lender shall bear interest during each Interest Period it is outstanding (computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and the actual days elapsed) on the unpaid principal amount thereof from the date such Revolving Loan is advanced, or created by conversion from a Eurodollar Loan, until maturity
- 37 -


(whether by acceleration or otherwise) at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate from time to time in effect applicable for such Interest Period, payable by the Borrower on each Payment Date and at maturity (whether by acceleration or otherwise).
    (c)    Rate Determinations. The Lender shall determine each interest rate applicable to the Revolving Loans hereunder, and its determination thereof shall be conclusive and binding except in the case of manifest error.
    (d)    Breakage Costs. The Borrower shall pay Breakage Costs to the Lender in an amount necessary to compensate the Lender for any loss, cost, or expense incurred by the Lender as a result of a prepayment by the Borrower of any Revolving Loans or Interest on a date other than a Payment Date. Such Breakage Costs shall be payable in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.6.
The Deal Agent shall advise the Servicer on the second (2nd) Business Day after each Collection Period the amount of Interest, if any, due and payable on the related Payment Date. Prior to the next succeeding Payment Date, the Deal Agent shall determine the amount of Interest, if any, payable in connection with Section 2.13(a)(iv) and not previously paid. The amount owed in respect of the Interest for the next succeeding Interest Period, as initially determined by the Deal Agent shall be increased, if necessary and as appropriate, to reflect any Interest payable in connection with Section 2.13(a)(iv) and not previously paid.
    Section 2.5.    Reduction of the Commitment. The Borrower may, upon at least two (2) Business Days’ notice to the Deal Agent, terminate in whole or reduce in part the portion of the Commitment that exceeds the Aggregate Loan Amount; provided, however, that each partial reduction of the Commitment shall be in an aggregate amount equal to $1,000,000 or an integral multiple thereof. Each notice of reduction or termination pursuant to this Section 2.5 shall be irrevocable.
    Section 2.6.    Settlement Procedures. (a) On each Payment Date, the Collateral Agent shall withdraw Available Funds and any Excess Reserve Amount (to be applied in accordance with Section 2.6(c)) and investment earnings on amounts on deposit in the Collection Account from the Collection Account and allocate and distribute such amounts to the applicable Person in the following order of priority:
    (i)    First, to the Hedge Counterparty, if any, an amount equal to any Hedge Costs (exclusive of termination payments) and any such Hedge Costs (exclusive of termination payments) unpaid from any prior Payment Date;
    (ii)    Second, to the Servicer, an amount equal to any accrued and unpaid Servicing Fees due in respect of such Payment Date and any Servicing Fees unpaid from any prior Payment Date;
    (iii)    Third, to the Deal Agent for the account of the Lender, an amount equal to the sum of any accrued and unpaid (A) Interest and Breakage Costs, (B) the Program Fee,
- 38 -


and (C) the Unused Fee, Increased Costs and any Additional Amounts due in respect of such Payment Date and any such amounts unpaid from any prior Payment Date;
    (iv)    Fourth, during the Revolving Period, to the Deal Agent for the account of the Lender, an amount equal to the Monthly Principal Payment Amount for such Payment Date;
    (v)    Fifth, during the Amortization Period, to the Deal Agent for the account of the Lender, the Additional Principal Payment Amount, until the Aggregate Loan Amount has been reduced to zero;

    (viii)    Eighth, to any other applicable Person, all remaining amounts up to all Aggregate Unpaids (during the Revolving Period, other than the Aggregate Loan Amount) until paid in full; and
    (ix)    Ninth, to the Borrower any remaining amounts.
    (b)    One (1) Business Day per calendar month, the date of which is to be chosen by the Borrower, the Collateral Agent shall, upon two (2) Business Days' prior written request of the Borrower, withdraw from the Collection Account an amount not to exceed the amount on deposit therein on the date of such request. The Collateral Agent shall distribute such amount to the Deal Agent for the account of the Lender, to be distributed by the Deal Agent to the Lender, as a payment in reduction of the Aggregate Loan Amount. Notwithstanding anything in this Section 2.6(b) to the contrary, the Collateral Agent shall not be required to effect any such withdrawal or the Deal Agent make any such distribution until a Responsible Officer of the Servicer or a representative of the Servicer designated by a Responsible Officer of the Servicer has certified to the Collateral Agent and the Deal Agent in writing (which shall include electronic transmission) that it reasonably believes that at the end of the related Collection Period the sum of Available Funds and Excess Reserve Amount, after giving effect to such payment, will be greater than the amount needed to make the payments required pursuant to Section 2.6(a)(i) through (viii).
    (c)    (i) If on any Payment Date the amount paid pursuant to Section 2.6(a)(iii) and (iv) is insufficient to cover all amounts due thereunder on such Payment Date, the Collateral Agent shall withdraw from the Reserve Account an amount equal to the lesser of such shortfall and the amount of funds on deposit in the Reserve Account (such withdrawal, a “Reserve Advance”) and deposit such amount to the Collection Account. The Collateral Agent shall pay such amount to the Deal Agent for payment to the Lender.
- 39 -


    (ii)    If on any Payment Date during the Amortization Period, the amount paid pursuant to Section 2.6(a)(v) is insufficient to reduce the Aggregate Loan Amount to zero, the Deal Agent, in its sole discretion, may direct the Collateral Agent to withdraw any or all of the amount on deposit in the Reserve Account, and pay such amount to the Deal Agent, for payment to the Lender.
    Section 2.7.    Collections and Allocations.
    (a)    Collections. The Servicer shall transfer, or cause to be transferred, all Collections on deposit in the form of available funds in the Credit Acceptance Payment Account to the Collection Account by the close of business on the second Business Day such Collections are received therein. The Servicer shall promptly (but in no event later than the second Business Day after the receipt thereof) deposit all Collections received directly by it in the Collection Account. The Servicer shall make such deposits or payments on the date indicated therein by wire transfer, in immediately available funds or by automated clearing house (ACH).
    (b)    Initial Deposits. On each Funding Date on which Collateral is contributed, the Servicer will deposit (in immediately available funds) into the Collection Account all Collections received on and after the applicable Cut-Off Date and through and including the day that is two days immediately preceding such Funding Date, in respect of the Loans.
    (c)    Investment of Funds. (i) Until the occurrence of a Termination Event or Unmatured Termination Event, to the extent there are uninvested amounts on deposit in the Collection Account and the Reserve Account, all amounts shall be invested as set forth in Section 6.7(c).
    (ii)    On the date on which the Aggregate Loan Amount is reduced to zero and all Aggregate Unpaids have been indefeasibly paid in full, all Collateral is released from the Lien of this Agreement, and this Agreement is terminated, any amounts on deposit in the Reserve Account shall be released to the Borrower.
    (d)    Allocation of Collections. The Servicer will allocate Collections monthly in accordance with the actual amount of Collections received. The Servicer shall determine each month the amount of Collections received during such month which constitutes amounts which, pursuant to the terms of any Dealer Agreement, are required to be remitted to the applicable Dealer (such collections, “Dealer Collections”) and shall so notify the Collateral Agent. Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, the Collateral Agent, at the direction of the Servicer, shall distribute on each Payment Date: (i) to the Borrower, an amount equal to the aggregate amount of Dealer Collections received during or with respect to the prior Collection Period and (ii) to any Successor Servicer, an amount equal to any Repossession Expenses related to the prior Collection Period prior to the distribution of Available Funds pursuant to Section 2.6.
    Section 2.8.    Payments, Computations, Etc. (a) Unless otherwise expressly provided herein, all amounts to be paid or deposited by the Borrower or the Servicer hereunder shall be paid or deposited in accordance with the terms hereof no later than 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) on the day when due in lawful money of the United States in immediately available funds

Any amounts received in the Agent’s Account after 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) shall be deemed to be received on the next subsequent Business Day and the Deal Agent shall distribute such amounts to the Persons entitled thereto no later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on such next subsequent Business Day. The Borrower shall, to the extent permitted by law, pay to the Secured Parties interest on all amounts not paid or deposited when due hereunder 3.00% per annum above the Base Rate, payable on demand; provided, however, that such interest rate shall not at any time exceed the maximum rate permitted by Applicable Law. All computations of interest and all computations of Interest and other fees hereunder and under the Fee Letter shall be made on the basis of a year of 360 days for the actual number of days (including the first but excluding the last day) elapsed.
    (b)    Whenever any payment hereunder shall be stated to be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day, and such extension of time shall in such case be included in the computation of payment of Interest, interest or any fee payable hereunder, as the case may be.
    (c)    If the Revolving Loan requested by the Borrower for any Funding Date is not made or effectuated for any reason other than the Lender’s failure to honor its obligations hereunder, as the case may be, on the requested Funding Date, the Borrower shall indemnify the Lender against any reasonable loss, cost or expense incurred by the Lender, including, without limitation, any loss (including loss of anticipated profits, net of anticipated profits in the reemployment of such funds in the manner determined by the Lender), cost or expense incurred by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds acquired by the Lender to fund or maintain the Funding.

    (e)    The Borrower shall pay to Chapman and Cutler LLP, as counsel to the Deal Agent, on the Closing Date, its estimated reasonable fees and out-of-pocket expenses (which shall be evidenced by a detailed invoice) in immediately available funds and shall pay all
- 41 -


additional reasonable fees and out-of-pocket expenses of Chapman and Cutler LLP within ten (10) Business Days after receiving a detailed invoice for such amounts.
    Section 2.10.    Increased Costs; Capital Adequacy; Illegality. (a) If any Change in Law shall (A) subject an Affected Party to any Tax (except for Taxes on the overall net income of such Affected Party), duty or other charge with respect to the Revolving Loans made by it hereunder, or any right to make the Funding hereunder, or on any payment made hereunder, (B) impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve requirement (including, without limitation, any reserve requirement imposed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, but excluding any reserve requirement, if any, included in the determination of Interest), special deposit or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the amount of, or credit extended by, any Affected Party or (C) impose any other condition affecting the Revolving Loans made by it hereunder or the Lender’s rights hereunder, the result of which is to increase the cost to any Affected Party or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by an Affected Party under this Agreement, then within ten (10) days after demand by such Affected Party (which demand shall be accompanied by a statement setting forth the basis for such demand), the Borrower shall pay directly to such Affected Party such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Affected Party for such additional or increased cost incurred or such reduction suffered.
    (b)    If any Change in Law shall occur regarding capital or liquidity requirements which has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on the capital of any Affected Party or would otherwise result in the imposition of an internal capital or liquidity charge on such Affected Person as a consequence of its obligations hereunder or arising in connection herewith to a level below that which any such Affected Party could have achieved but for such reduction or charge (taking into consideration the policies of such Affected Party with respect to capital adequacy) by an amount deemed by such Affected Party to be material, then from time to time, within ten (10) days after demand by such Affected Party (which demand shall be accompanied by a statement setting forth the basis for such demand), the Borrower shall pay directly to such Affected Party such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Affected Party for such reduction suffered or charge imposed. For avoidance of doubt, any interpretation of Accounting Research Bulletin No. 51 by the Financial Accounting Standards Board shall constitute an adoption, change, request or directive subject to this Section 2.10(b).
    (c)    In determining any amount provided for in this Section, the Affected Party may use any reasonable averaging and attribution methods. Any Affected Party making a claim under this section shall submit to the Servicer a written description as to such additional or increased cost or reduction and the calculation thereof, which written description shall be conclusive absent demonstrable error.
    (e)    At any time the Deal Agent or the Lender shall notify the Borrower that an event described in clause (b) of the definition of “LIBOR” has occurred, the Aggregate Loan Amount in respect of which Interest accrues at the Adjusted LIBOR shall immediately be converted into Base Rate Loans.
    Section 2.11.    Taxes.
- 42 -


(a) Defined Terms. For purposes of this Section 2.11, the term “applicable law” includes FATCA.
(b) Payments Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of the Borrower or the Servicer under any Transaction Document shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by applicable law. If any applicable law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable withholding agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a withholding agent, then the applicable withholding agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the Borrower or the Servicer, as applicable, shall be increased as necessary (such increase, the “Additional Amount”) so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) the applicable recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.
(c) Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrower. The Borrower shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law, or at the option of the Deal Agent or the relevant Lender timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes.
(d) Indemnification by the Borrower. The Borrower shall indemnify each recipient, within 10 days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) payable or paid by such recipient or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such recipient and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrower by a Lender or the Deal Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(e) Evidence of Payments.

Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (h) (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 (h), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (h) 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.
(i) Survival. Each party’s obligations under this Section 2.11 shall survive the assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, the termination of the Commitments and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Transaction Document.

    (v)    Upon receipt of the amount set forth in Section 2.13(a)(iv), the Collateral Agent shall apply such amounts first to the pro-rata reduction of the Aggregate Loan Amount, second to the payment of accrued Interest on the amount of Aggregate Loan Amount to be repaid and to the payment of any Breakage Costs, by paying such amounts to the Lender, and third to pay any Hedge Costs related to such reduction of the Aggregate Loan Amount due to the relevant Hedge Counterparty, and fourth to pay all other Aggregate Unpaids related to such reduction of the Aggregate Loan Amount due to the relevant party.

The Borrower shall make a deposit to the Collection Account (for allocation pursuant to Section 2.6) in immediately available funds an amount (the “Release Price”) equal to the sum of (i): in the case of an Ineligible Loan, the product of (x) the Outstanding Balance related to such Loan as of the last day of the related Collection Period and (y) the Net Advance Rate in effect on the date of such payment; and in the case of an Ineligible Contract, the product of (x) the Outstanding Balance related to such Contract as of the last day of the related Collection Period and (y) a ratio the numerator of which is the Aggregate Loan Amount as of the date of such payment and the denominator of which is the Outstanding Balance of all Contracts as of the last day of the related Collection Period; (ii) accrued and unpaid Carrying Costs, Increased Costs, Indemnified Amounts and Additional Amounts related to such Loan or Contract through the date of such deposit; and (iii) all Hedge Costs due to the relevant Hedge Counterparties for any termination in whole or in part of one or more transactions related to the relevant Hedging Agreement, as
- 67 -


required by the terms of any Hedging Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, with respect to any Ineligible Contracts, the Borrower may repurchase the Loans related thereto in lieu of such Ineligible Contracts and deposit into the Collection Account the Release Price of such Loans (as if such Loans were Ineligible Loans). Each Loan or Contract which is subject to a payment in accordance with this Section 4.5(a) shall, upon payment in full of the related Release Price, be released from the lien created pursuant to this Agreement and shall no longer constitute Collateral. The Collateral Agent as agent for the Secured Parties shall, at the sole expense of the Servicer, execute and deliver such instruments of transfer, in each case without recourse, representation or warranty, as shall be prepared and reasonably requested by the Servicer on behalf of the Borrower to vest in the Borrower, or its designee or assignee, all right, title and interest of the Collateral Agent as agent for the Secured Parties in, to and under the Loans or Contract subject to a payment in accordance with this Section 4.5(a).
    (b)    Retransfer of All of the Loans. In the event of a breach of any representation or warranty set forth in Section 4.2 hereof which breach could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, by notice then given in writing to the Borrower, the Deal Agent may direct the Borrower to accept the release by the Collateral Agent of all of the Loans, in which case the Borrower shall be obligated to accept the release of such Loans on a Payment Date specified by the Deal Agent (such date, the “Release Date”); provided, however, that no such release shall be given effect unless the Borrower has complied with the terms of any Hedging Agreement requiring that any derivative transaction related thereto be terminated in whole or in part and the Borrower has paid all Hedge Costs due with respect to such termination. The Borrower shall deposit in the Collection Account on the Release Date an amount equal to: (A) the Aggregate Unpaids minus (B) the amount, if any, available in the Collection Account and the Reserve Account on such Payment Date (the “Retransfer Amount”) for allocation and distribution in accordance with Section 2.6. On the Release Date, provided that the full Retransfer Amount has been deposited into the Collection Account, the Loans and Related Security related thereto shall be transferred to the Borrower; and the Collateral Agent as agent for the Secured Parties shall, at the sole expense of the Servicer, execute and deliver such instruments of transfer, in each case without recourse, representation or warranty, as shall be prepared and reasonably requested by the Servicer on behalf of the Borrower to vest in the Borrower, or its designee or assignee, all right, title and interest of the Collateral Agent as agent for the Secured Parties in, to and under the Loans.
    (c)    Remedy for Breach. The parties hereto agree that the sole remedy for the breach by the Borrower of the representations and warranties set forth in Section 4.2 hereof with respect to the eligibility of a Loan or Contract shall be set forth in this Section 4.5 and Section 6.2(c)(ii).
    (d)    Application. Amounts paid in accordance with Section 4.5(a) and (b) shall be distributed on the next succeeding Payment Date in accordance with Section 2.6.
    (e)    Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, during the Revolving Period, payments required under Section 4.5(a) and (b) shall not be required if the Aggregate Loan Amount is equal to or less than the Borrowing Base.

    (g)    Amortization Events and Termination Events. The Servicer will furnish to the Deal Agent, as soon as possible and in any event within two (2) Business Days after the occurrence of each Amortization Event, each Termination Event and each Unmatured Termination Event, a written statement of the chief financial officer or treasurer of the Servicer setting forth the details of such event and the action that the Servicer purposes to take with respect thereto.

Article VI

Administration and Servicing of Contracts
    Section 6.1.    Servicing. (a) The Borrower, the Deal Agent and the Collateral Agent hereby appoint Credit Acceptance as servicer hereunder and Credit Acceptance hereby accepts such appointment and agrees to manage, collect and administer each of the Loans and Contracts as Servicer. In the event of a Servicer Termination Event, the Deal Agent shall have the right to terminate Credit Acceptance as servicer hereunder. Upon termination of Credit Acceptance as servicer of the Loans pursuant to Section 6.11 hereof, the Deal Agent shall have the right to appoint a Successor Servicer and enter into a servicing agreement with such Successor Servicer at such time and exercise all of its rights under Section 6.3 hereof. Such servicing agreement shall specify the duties and obligations of such Successor Servicer, and all references herein to the Servicer shall be deemed to refer to such Successor Servicer.
    (b)    The Borrower shall cause the Servicer to deposit all Collections to the Collection Account no later than two (2) Business Days after receipt. The Servicer agrees to deposit all Collections to the Collection Account no later than two (2) Business Days after receipt.
    (c)    On or before 120 days after the end of each fiscal year of the Servicer, beginning with the fiscal year ending December 31, 2016, the Servicer shall cause a firm of independent public accountants (who may also render other services to the Servicer or the Borrower) to
- 83 -


furnish a report to the Collateral Agent, the Deal Agent and the Secured Parties to the effect that they have (i) compared the information contained in the Monthly Reports delivered during such fiscal year, based on a sample size provided by the Collateral Agent, with the information contained in the Loans, the Contracts and the Servicer’s records and computer systems for such period, and that, on the basis of such agreed upon procedures, such firm is of the opinion that the information contained in the Monthly Reports reconciles with the information contained in the Loans and the Contracts and the Servicer’s records and computer system and that the servicing of the Loans and the Contracts has been conducted in compliance with this Agreement and (ii) verified the Aggregate Outstanding Eligible Loan Balance as of the end of each Collection Period during such fiscal year, except, in each case for (a) such exceptions as such firm shall believe to be immaterial (which exceptions need not be enumerated) and (b) such other exceptions as shall be set forth in such statement.
    Section 6.2.    Duties of the Servicer and Custodian. (a) The Servicer shall take or cause to be taken all such action as may be necessary or advisable to collect all amounts due under the Loans and Contracts from time to time, all in material accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations, with reasonable care and diligence, and in material accordance with the Collection Guidelines and Credit Guidelines, it being understood that there shall be no recourse to the Servicer with regard to the Loans and Contracts except as otherwise provided herein and in the other Transaction Documents. In performing its duties as Servicer, the Servicer shall use the same degree of care and attention it employs with respect to similar contracts and loans which it services for itself or others. Each of the Borrower, the Deal Agent, the Collateral Agent and the Secured Parties hereby appoints as its agent the Servicer, from time to time designated pursuant to Section 6.1 hereof, to enforce its respective rights and interests in and under the Collateral. If the Servicer shall commence a legal proceeding to enforce a Loan or a Contract (for purposes of collection or otherwise), or if in any enforcement or other legal proceeding it shall be held that the Servicer may not enforce a Loan or a Contract, on the grounds that it shall not be a real party in interest or a holder entitled to enforce the Loan or Contract or on similar grounds, the Collateral Agent shall thereupon be deemed to have automatically assigned to the Servicer, solely for the purpose of enforcement, such Loan or Contract. Without limiting the foregoing, the Collateral Agent (and the Lender, if applicable) shall furnish the Servicer with an affidavit prepared by the Servicer that the Servicer may use in any such legal proceedings confirming the Servicer’s power and authority to sue and otherwise enforce the Loans and Contracts in its own name, consistent with this Section 6.2, and any powers of attorney or other documents prepared by the Servicer reasonably necessary or appropriate to enable the Servicer to carry out its servicing and administrative duties hereunder. The Servicer shall hold in trust for the Secured Parties all Records and any amounts it receives in respect of the Collateral. In the event that a Successor Servicer is appointed, the outgoing Servicer shall deliver to the Successor Servicer and the Successor Servicer shall hold in trust for the Borrower and the Secured Parties all records which evidence or relate to all or any part of the Collateral.
    (b)    The Servicer, if other than Credit Acceptance, shall as soon as practicable upon demand, deliver to the Borrower all records in its possession which evidence or relate to indebtedness of an Obligor which is not a Loan or a Contract.
- 84 -


    (c)    (i) The Borrower, the Deal Agent and the Collateral Agent hereby revocably appoint Credit Acceptance as custodian, and Credit Acceptance hereby accepts such appointment, to hold and maintain physical possession of the Contract Files and all Records (or with respect to any Contract constituting electronic chattel paper, to maintain "control" (within the meaning of Section 9-105 of the UCC) of the Authoritative Electronic Copy thereof) (in such capacity together with its successors in such capacity, the “Custodian”). The Contract Files and Records are to be delivered to the Custodian or its designated bailee by or on behalf of the Borrower, the Deal Agent and the Collateral Agent within two (2) Business Days preceding the Funding Date or within 2 Business Days after each Addition Date, as the case may be, with respect to each Loan acquired on the Funding Date or Addition Date.
    (ii)    The Custodian shall within 180 days after the Closing Date or Funding Date, as applicable, review 100% of the Contract Files to verify the presence of the original retail installment contract and security agreement and/or installment loans with respect to each Contract, provided, however, that the Certificate of Title or other evidence of lien with respect to a Contract need not be verified. If the number of Contracts for which any of the foregoing documents have not been delivered to the Custodian within 180 days of the Closing Date or relevant Funding Date, as the case may be, or corrected (each such Contract, a “Nonconforming Contract”), exceeds 2% of the aggregate Contract Files required to be reviewed pursuant to this Section 6.2(c)(ii), the Borrower shall make a deposit to the Reserve Account only with respect to the excess number of Nonconforming Contracts, in an amount equal to the related Nonconforming Contract Payment Amount. Once per month, the amount on deposit in the Reserve Account in respect of Nonconforming Contracts shall be adjusted to account for increases or decreases in the excess number of Nonconforming Contracts and for changes in the Outstanding Balance of such Nonconforming Contracts. The Borrower shall, in the case of an increase, promptly deposit to the Reserve Account the amount of any such increase. In the case of a decrease, the amount of any such decrease shall be deemed to be part of the Excess Reserve Amount. During the Revolving Period, payments required under this Section 6.2(c)(ii) shall not be required if the Aggregate Loan Amount is equal to or less than the Borrowing Base by the amount of the payment that would otherwise be required to be made by this clause.
    (iii)    The Custodian agrees to maintain the Contract Files and Records which are delivered to it at the offices of the Custodian as shall from time to time be identified to the Deal Agent by written notice. Subject to the foregoing, Credit Acceptance may temporarily (or permanently, in the case of a Contract that is repurchased, liquidated or paid in full) move or transfer to an agent of the Servicer individual Contract Files or Records, or any portion thereof without notice as necessary to allow the Servicer to conduct collection and other servicing activities in accordance with its customary practices and procedures.
    (iv)    The Custodian shall have the following powers and perform the following duties:
    (A)    hold the Contract Files and Records for the benefit of the Secured Parties and maintain a current inventory thereof; and
    (B)    carry out such policies and procedures in accordance with its customary actions with respect to the handling and custody of the Contract Files and Records so that
- 85 -


the integrity and physical possession of the Contract Files and Records (or with respect to any Contract constituting electronic chattel paper, the integrity and "control" (for UCC purposes) of the Authoritative Electronic Copy thereof) will be maintained.
In performing its duties as custodian, the Custodian agrees to act with reasonable care, using that degree of skill and care that it exercises with respect to similar Contracts or Loans owned or held by it for its own account or for any other Person.
    (v)    Credit Acceptance shall have the obligation (i) to physically segregate the Contract Files (to the extent held in physical form) from the other custodial files it is holding for its own account or on behalf of any other Person, (ii) to physically mark the Contract folders (to the extent held in physical form) to demonstrate the transfer of Contract Files and the Collateral Agent’s security interest hereunder, (iii) mark its computer records indicating the transfer of any Contract Files relating to Contracts constituting electronic chattel paper and the Collateral Agent’s security interest hereunder, and (iv) with respect to each Contract constituting electronic chattel paper, cause the single “authoritative copy” (within the meaning of Section 9-105 of the UCC) to be communicated to and maintained at all times by Credit Acceptance such that the “authoritative copy” constitutes an Authoritative Electronic Copy at all times.
    (d)    (i) If (A) an Unsatisfactory Audit occurs or (B) a Servicer Termination Event or potential Servicer Termination Event occurs, the Deal Agent shall have the right to terminate Credit Acceptance as the Custodian hereunder and the Deal Agent shall have the right to appoint a successor Custodian hereunder who shall assume all the rights and obligations of the “Custodian” hereunder. On the effective date of the termination of Credit Acceptance as Servicer, Credit Acceptance shall be released of all of its obligations as Custodian arising on or after such date. The Contract Files and Records shall be delivered by Credit Acceptance to the successor Custodian, on or before the date which is two (2) Business Days prior to such date.
    (ii)    Upon the occurrence of a Servicer Termination Event or potential Servicer Termination Event, the Servicer and the Borrower shall, at the request of the Deal Agent, in its sole discretion, take all steps necessary to cause the Certificate of Title or other evidence of ownership of each Financed Vehicle to be revised to name the Collateral Agent on behalf of the Secured Parties as lienholder. Any costs associated with such revision of the Certificate of Title (“Reliening Expenses”) shall be paid by the Servicer and, to the extent such costs are not paid by the Servicer, such unpaid costs shall be recovered as described in Section 2.6 hereof. In no event shall the Collateral Agent be required to expend funds in connection with this Section 6.2(d).
    (iii)    The Custodian shall provide to the Deal Agent access to the Contract Files and Records and all other documentation regarding the Contracts, Dealer Agreements and the Loans and the related Financed Vehicles in such cases where the Collateral Agent is required in connection with the enforcement of the rights or interests of the Secured Parties, or by applicable statutes or regulations to review such documentation, such access being afforded without charge.
    (e)    Two times per calendar year, at the expense of the Servicer, the Deal Agent may review the Servicer’s collection and administration of the Loans, Dealer Agreements and Contracts in order to assess compliance by the Servicer with the Servicer’s written policies and
- 86 -


procedures, as well as with this Agreement and, at the expense of the Deal Agent of the Lender, may conduct an audit of the Loans, Dealer Agreements and Contracts and Contract Files in conjunction with such a review. On and after the occurrence of a Termination Event or Servicer Termination Event, the Deal Agent may conduct such reviews and audits without limitation, at the Servicer’s expense.
    Section 6.3.    Rights After Designation of Successor Servicer. At any time following the designation of a Successor Servicer pursuant to Section 6.12(a):
    (i)    The Collateral Agent may intercept payments made by or on behalf of Obligors and direct that payment of all amounts payable under any Loan or Contract be made directly to the Collateral Agent or its designee; provided, that the Collateral Agent shall pay to any Dealer, to the extent to which such Dealer is entitled, all related Dealer Collections.
    (ii)    The Borrower shall, at the Collateral Agent’s request and at the Borrower’s expense, give notice of the Collateral Agent’s interest in the Loans and Contracts to each Obligor and direct that payments be made directly to the Collateral Agent or its designee.
    (iii)    The Borrower and Credit Acceptance shall, at the Collateral Agent’s request and at the Borrower’s expense, (A) assemble all of the records relating to the Collateral, including all Records with respect to the Loans and Contracts, and shall make the same available to the Collateral Agent at a place selected by the Collateral Agent or its designee, and (B) segregate all cash, checks and other instruments received by it from time to time constituting collections of Collateral in a manner acceptable to the Collateral Agent and shall, promptly upon receipt but in any event within two (2) Business Days, remit all such cash, checks and instruments, duly endorsed or with duly executed instruments of transfer, to the Collateral Agent or its designee.
    (iv)    The Borrower hereby authorizes the Collateral Agent to take any and all steps in the Borrower’s name and on behalf of the Borrower necessary or desirable, in the determination of the Collateral Agent, to collect all amounts due under any and all of the Collateral with respect thereto, including, without limitation, endorsing the Borrower’s name on checks and other instruments representing Collections and enforcing the Loans and Contracts.
    Section 6.4.    Responsibilities of the Borrower. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the Borrower shall (i) perform all of its obligations under the Loans and Contracts to the same extent as if a security interest in such Loans and Contracts had not been granted hereunder and the exercise by the Collateral Agent of its rights hereunder shall not relieve the Borrower from such obligations and (ii) pay when due any taxes, including without limitation, any sales taxes payable in connection with the Loans or Contracts and their creation and satisfaction. Neither the Collateral Agent nor any Secured Party shall have any obligation or liability with respect to any Loan, nor shall any of them be obligated to perform any of the obligations of the Borrower thereunder.
- 87 -


    Section 6.5.    Reports.

    Section 6.12.    Appointment of Successor Servicer. (a) On and after the receipt by the Servicer of a Servicer Termination Notice pursuant to Section 6.11 or Section 9.2, the Servicer shall continue to perform all servicing functions under this Agreement until the date specified in the Servicer Termination Notice or otherwise specified by the Deal Agent in writing or, if no such date is specified in such Servicer Termination Notice or otherwise specified by the Deal Agent, until a date mutually agreed upon by the Servicer and the Deal Agent.

    (c)    All authority and power granted to the Servicer under this Agreement shall automatically cease and terminate upon termination of this Agreement and shall pass to and be vested in the Borrower and, without limitation, the Borrower is hereby authorized and empowered to execute and deliver, on behalf of the Servicer, as attorney-in-fact or otherwise, all documents and other instruments, and to do and accomplish all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect the purposes of such transfer of servicing rights. The Servicer agrees to cooperate with the Borrower in effecting the termination of the responsibilities and rights of the Servicer to conduct servicing on the Loans and the Contracts.
    Section 6.13.    Responsibilities of the Borrower. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the Borrower shall (i) perform all of its obligations under the Loans to the same
- 93 -


extent as if a security interest in such Loans had not been granted hereunder and (ii) pay when due, from funds available to the Borrower under Section 2.6 hereof, any taxes. Neither the Deal Agent, Collateral Agent nor any Secured Party shall have any obligation or liability with respect to any Loan, nor shall any of them be obligated to perform any of the obligations of the Borrower thereunder.
    Section 6.14.    Segregated Payment Account. Upon the occurrence of a Servicer Termination Event, a potential Servicer Termination Event or an Unsatisfactory Audit, the Deal Agent shall have the right to require the Borrower and the Servicer (i) to establish a segregated payment trust account in the name of the Collateral Agent for Collections related to the Collateral and (ii) to direct all Obligors to make payments into such account.
    Section 6.15.    Dealer Collections Repurchase; Replacement of Dealer Loan with Related Purchased Loans. The parties hereto acknowledge the following:
    (a)    During its ordinary course of business in managing its serviced portfolio of Dealer Loans (and not based on the poor credit quality of the Dealer Loan Contracts), Credit Acceptance may from time to time agree to enter into an agreement (a “Dealer Collections Purchase Agreement”) with a Dealer, pursuant to which the Dealer agrees to sell and assign to Credit Acceptance all of its rights, interests and entitlement in and to one or more Pools of Dealer Loan Contracts securing the related Dealer Loans, including such Dealer’s ownership interest in such Dealer Loan Contracts and rights to receive the related Dealer Collections (a “Dealer Collections Purchase”).
    (b)    Credit Acceptance has assigned all of its rights under any Dealer Collections Purchase Agreements to the Borrower pursuant to the Contribution Agreement. Upon the payment by Credit Acceptance to the applicable Dealer under a Dealer Collections Purchase Agreement of the purchase price thereunder (the “Dealer Collections Purchase Price”), the related Dealer Loans (including the rights to the related Dealer Loan Collections thereunder) shall be deemed to be satisfied and pursuant to the Contribution Agreement the Dealer Loan Contracts securing such Dealer Loans shall be assigned by Credit Acceptance to Borrower as Purchased Loan Contracts and the loans thereunder shall be deemed Purchased Loans. For the avoidance of doubt, all Collections on such Purchased Loan Contracts shall be included in Available Funds.
    (c)    On the date of each Dealer Collections Purchase, Credit Acceptance shall deliver to the Collateral Agent a list identifying (A) all Dealer Loans satisfied as a result of such Dealer Collections Purchase, (B) each Dealer Loan Contract previously securing such Dealer Loans and (C) the Purchased Loans and Purchased Loan Contracts evidencing such Purchased Loans resulting from such Dealer Collections Purchase, in each case, identified by account number, dealer number and pool number, as applicable. Such list shall be deemed to supplement Exhibit A to the Contribution Agreement and Schedule V hereto as of the date of such Dealer Collections Purchase.

    Section 11.6.    Reimbursement and Indemnification. The Lender agrees to reimburse and indemnify the Deal Agent, the Collateral Agent and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents ratably according to their pro rata shares, to the extent not paid or reimbursed by the Borrower (i) for any amounts for which the Deal Agent, acting in its capacity as Deal Agent, or the Collateral Agent, acting in its capacity as Collateral Agent, is
- 104 -


entitled to reimbursement by the Borrower hereunder and (ii) for any other expenses incurred by the Deal Agent, in its capacity as Deal Agent, or the Collateral Agent, acting in its capacity as Collateral Agent and acting on behalf of the Secured Parties, in connection with the administration and enforcement of this Agreement.

With respect to each Funding pursuant to this Agreement, the Deal Agent, the Collateral Agent and each of their respective Affiliates shall have the same rights and powers under this Agreement as the Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not the Deal Agent or the Collateral Agent, as the case may be, and the term “Lender” shall include the Deal Agent or the Collateral Agent, as the case may be, in its individual capacity.

Article XII

Assignments; Participations
    Section 12.1.    Assignments and Participations. (a) The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, except that (i) the Borrower may not assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the Lender, and (ii) the Lender may not assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder to anyone other than an Eligible Assignee; provided, that the Lender shall provide prior notice of such assignment to the Borrower. Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, shall be construed to confer upon any Person (other than the parties hereto, their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, or any participants to the extent provided in Section 12.1(b) hereof) any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or by reason of this Agreement.
    (b)    The Lender shall have the right to grant participations in all or a portion of the Lender’s rights and/or obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment and/or the Revolving Loans owing to it) to one or more other banking institutions (each such person a “Participant”), and such Participants shall be entitled to the benefits of this Agreement, including, without limitation, Sections 2.10 and 2.11 hereof, to the same extent as if they were a direct party hereto; provided that (i) the Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) the Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations and (iii) the Borrower and the other parties hereto, shall continue to deal solely and directly with the Lender in connection with the Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, and provided further that no such Participant shall be entitled to receive payment hereunder of any amount greater than the amount which would have been payable had the Lender not granted a participation to such Participant, unless the sale of the participation to such Participant is made with the Borrower’s prior written consent (which consent may be withheld if any such Participant would be entitled to any such greater amount or conditioned on such Participant not receiving any such greater amount). Upon the grant of a participation of the Lender’s rights and/or obligations under this Agreement, the Lender will promptly notify the Borrower of the Participant and the proportionate amount granted under such participation. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of the Borrower, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each Participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under the Transaction Documents (the “Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant's interest in any commitments, loans, letters of credit or its other obligations under any Transaction Document) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such commitment, loan, letter of credit or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations.
(c)    The Deal Agent, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of the Borrower, shall maintain at one of its offices in 151 Corporate Drive Troy, MI 48098 a copy of each assignment agreement delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the
- 106 -


Lenders, and the Commitments of, and principal amounts (and stated interest) of the Loans owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and the Borrower, the Deal Agent and the Lenders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower and any Lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.
    (d)    Nothing herein shall prohibit the Lender from pledging or assigning as collateral any of its rights under this Agreement to any Federal Reserve Bank in accordance with Applicable Law and any such pledge or collateral assignment may be made without compliance with Section 12.1(a) or Section 12.1(b).
Article XIII

If any Secured Party, whether by setoff or otherwise, has payment made to it with respect to any portion of the Aggregate Unpaids owing to such Secured Party (other than payments received pursuant to Section 10.1) in a greater proportion than that received by any other Secured Party, such Secured Party agrees, promptly upon demand, to purchase for cash without recourse or warranty a portion of the Aggregate Unpaids held by the other Secured Parties so that after such purchase each Secured Party will hold its ratable proportion of the Aggregate Unpaids; provided, however, that if all or any portion of such excess amount is thereafter recovered from such Secured Party, such purchase shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, but without interest.
- 107 -


    Section 13.4.    No Waiver; Remedies. No failure on the part of the Deal Agent, the Collateral Agent or a Secured Party to exercise, and no delay in exercising, any right or remedy hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or remedy hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right. The rights and remedies herein provided are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights and remedies provided by law.

This Agreement, including, without limitation, the Borrower’s representations, warranties and covenants set forth in Articles IV and V, and the Servicer’s representations, warranties and covenants set forth in Articles IV and V hereof, create and constitute the continuing obligation of the parties hereto in accordance with its terms, and shall remain in full force and effect until the Collection Date; provided, however, that the rights and remedies with respect to any breach of any representation and warranty made or deemed made by the Borrower or Servicer pursuant to Articles IV and V and the indemnification and payment provisions of Article X and Article XI and the provisions of Section 13.10 and Section 13.11 shall be continuing and shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
    Section 13.7.    Governing Law; Consent to Jurisdiction; Waiver of Objection to Venue. This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York. Each of the Parties hereto and each Hedge Counterparty hereby agrees to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of any federal court located within the State of New York. Each of the parties hereto and each secured party hereby waives any objection based on forum non conveniens, and any objection to venue of any action instituted hereunder in any of the aforementioned courts and consents to the granting of such legal or equitable relief as is deemed appropriate by such court.
    Section 13.8.    Waiver of Jury Trial. To the extent permitted by applicable law, each of the parties hereto and each hedge counterparty hereby waives any right to have a jury participate in resolving any dispute, whether sounding in contract, tort, or otherwise between the parties hereto arising out of, connected with, related to, or incidental to the relationship between any of them in connection with this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby. Instead, any such dispute resolved in court will be resolved in a bench trial without a jury.

    (c)    If the Borrower or the Servicer fails to perform any of its obligations hereunder, the Collateral Agent or any Secured Party may (but shall not be required to) perform, or cause performance of, such obligation; and the Collateral Agent’s or such Secured Party’s costs and expenses incurred in connection therewith shall be payable by the Borrower (if the Servicer that fails to so perform is the Borrower or an Affiliate thereof) as provided in Article X, as applicable. The Borrower irrevocably authorizes the Collateral Agent and appoints the Collateral Agent as its attorney-in-fact to act on behalf of the Borrower (i) to execute on behalf of the Borrower as debtor and to file financing statements necessary or desirable in the Collateral Agent’s sole discretion to perfect and to maintain the perfection and priority of the interest of the Secured Parties in the Collateral and (ii) to file a carbon, photographic or other reproduction of this Agreement or any financing statement with respect to the Collateral as a financing statement in such offices as the Collateral Agent in its sole discretion deems necessary or desirable to perfect and to maintain the perfection and priority of the interests of the Secured Parties in the Collateral.

Such opinion of counsel shall (i) describe the filing of any financing statements and continuation statements that will, in the opinion of such counsel, be required to preserve and protect the interest of the Collateral Agent in the Collateral, until the 90th day in the following Opinion Delivery Year and (ii) specify any action necessary (as of the date of such opinion) to be taken in the following calendar years prior to the next succeeding Opinion Delivery Year to preserve perfection of such interest.

It is understood that the financial terms that may not be disclosed except in compliance with this Section 13.13(a) include, without limitation, all fees and other pricing terms, and all Termination Events, Servicer Termination Events, and priority of payment provisions.
    (b)    Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, each of the Borrower and the Servicer hereby consents to the disclosure of any nonpublic information with respect to it (i) to the Deal Agent, the Collateral Agent, any Successor Servicer, or the Secured Parties by each other, or (ii) by the Deal Agent or the Lender to any of its prospective or actual assignee or participants or to any officers, directors, employees, outside accountants and attorneys of any of the foregoing, provided each such Person is informed of the confidential nature of such information.

    (d)    Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, any party to this Agreement (and any employee, representative or other agent of any party to this Agreement) may disclose to any and all persons, without limitation of any kind, the tax treatment and tax structure of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and all materials of any kind (including opinions or other tax analyses) that are provided to it relating to such tax treatment and tax structure; provided, however, that such disclosure may not be made to the extent required to be kept confidential to comply with any applicable federal or state securities laws; and provided, further, that (to the extent not inconsistent with the foregoing) such disclosure shall be made without disclosing the names or other identifying information of any party.
    Section 13.14.    Execution in Counterparts; Severability; Integration. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and all of which when taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement. In case any provision in or obligation under this Agreement shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions or obligations, or of such provision or obligation in any other jurisdiction, shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby. This Agreement and any agreements or letters (including fee letters) executed in connection herewith contains the final and complete integration of all prior expressions by the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and shall constitute the entire agreement among the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof, superseding all prior oral or written understandings other than any fee letter delivered by the Originator to the Deal Agent or the Lender.

CREDIT ACCEPTANCE ANNOUNCES
EXTENSION OF REVOLVING SECURED WAREHOUSE FACILITY

Southfield, Michigan – October 15, 2021 – Credit Acceptance Corporation (Nasdaq: CACC) (referred to as the “Company”, “Credit Acceptance”, “we”, “our”, or “us”) announced today that we extended the date on which our $75.0 million revolving secured warehouse facility will cease to revolve from September 30, 2022 to September 30, 2024. There were no other material changes to the terms of the facility.

As of October 15, 2021, we did not have a balance outstanding under the facility.

Description of Credit Acceptance Corporation

Since 1972, Credit Acceptance has offered financing programs that enable automobile dealers to sell vehicles to consumers, regardless of their credit history. Our financing programs are offered through a nationwide network of automobile dealers who benefit from sales of vehicles to consumers who otherwise could not obtain financing; from repeat and referral sales generated by these same customers; and from sales to customers responding to advertisements for our financing programs, but who actually end up qualifying for traditional financing.

Without our financing programs, consumers are often unable to purchase vehicles or they purchase unreliable ones. Further, as we report to the three national credit reporting agencies, an important ancillary benefit of our programs is that we provide consumers with an opportunity to improve their lives by improving their credit score and move on to more traditional sources of financing. Credit Acceptance is publicly traded on the Nasdaq Stock Market under the symbol CACC. For more information, visit creditacceptance.com.
