Upon a written request from the Trustee, the Administrative Agent shall provide in writing the identity of the Purchaser Groups, the related Funding Agents for each CP Conduit Purchaser Group, the Purchaser Group Invested Amount for each Purchaser Group, the identity of the Committed Note Purchasers, the Class R Invested Amount for each Committed Note Purchaser, and the Commitment Percentage with respect to any Purchaser Group, to the Trustee.

Section 2.3.     Procedure for Initial Issuance and for Increasing the Series 2022-2 Invested Amount. (a)  Subject to Section 2.3(c), (i) on the Series 2022-2 Closing Date, (A) each Non-Conduit Purchaser shall purchase, and each CP Conduit Purchaser and/or APA Bank agree to purchase, a Class A Note in accordance with Section 2.1 and (B) each Committed Note Purchaser shall purchase a Class R Note in accordance with Section 2.1 and (ii) on any Business Day during the period from the Effective Date to and including the Expiry Date (A) with respect to a Purchaser Group, in the case of a Non-Conduit Purchaser Group, the Related Non-Conduit Purchaser hereby agrees, or in the case of a CP Conduit Purchaser Group, each CP Conduit Purchaser in such CP Conduit Purchaser Group may agree, in its sole discretion, and each APA Bank with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser hereby agrees that the Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to each such Purchaser Group may be increased by an amount equal to its APA Bank Percentage of the Commitment Percentage with respect to such Purchaser Group of the Increase Amount (an “Increase”), upon the request of ABRCF (each date on which an increase in the Series 2022-2 Invested Amount occurs hereunder being herein referred to as the “Increase Date” applicable to such Increase) and (B) as a result of such Increase with respect to the Class A Notes as requested by ABRCF, each Committed Note Purchaser hereby agrees that the Class R Invested Amount with respect to such Committed Note Purchaser shall be increased by the minimum amount necessary to cause the Retention Test to be satisfied; provided, however, that ABRCF shall have given the Administrative Agent and each Committed Note Purchaser (with a copy to the Trustee) irrevocable (other than as specified in Section 2.3(e)) written notice (effective upon receipt), by telecopy (receipt confirmed), substantially in the form of Exhibit B together with a calculation (including of the components thereof) in a form reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent of the sum of (i) the Series 2022-2 AESOP I Operating Loan Agreement Borrowing Base and (ii) the Series 2022-2 VFN Percentage of the excess, if any, of (x) the AESOP II Loan Agreement Borrowing Base over (y) the AESOP II DBRS Excluded Manufacturer Amount on the date of such notice, of such request no later than 3:00 p.m. (New York City time) on (A) with respect to a Deferrable Increase Notice, the third Business Day prior to such Increase Date or (B) with respect to a Non-Deferrable Increase Notice, the second Business Day prior to the Series 2022-2 Closing Date or such Increase Date, as the case may be. Such notice shall state (x) the Series 2022-2 Closing Date or the Increase Date, as the case may be, (y) the initial invested amount (the “Series 2022-2 Initial Invested

 49 

 

Amount”) or the proposed amount of the increase in the Class A Invested Amount and the Class R Invested Amount, as applicable (in each case, an “Increase Amount”), as the case may be, and (z) whether a Delayed Funding Notice may be delivered in connection with such Increase pursuant to Section 2.3(e). The Commitment Percentage with respect to any Purchaser Group of the Increase Amount with respect to the Class A Notes set forth in any Non-Deferrable Increase Notice shall not exceed such Purchaser Group’s Non-Deferrable Draw Amount as of the related Increase Date.

(b)           If the CP Conduit Purchasers in a CP Conduit Purchaser Group elect not to fund the full amount of its Commitment Percentage of the Series 2022-2 Initial Invested Amount or a requested Increase or the related Purchaser Group Increase Amount, such CP Conduit Purchaser shall notify the Administrative Agent and the Funding Agent with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser, and each APA Bank with respect to such CP Conduit Purchasers shall fund its APA Bank Percentage of the portion of the Commitment Percentage with respect to such Related Purchaser Group of the Series 2022-2 Initial Invested Amount or such Increase, as the case may be, not funded by such CP Conduit Purchasers.

(c)           No Purchaser Group shall be required to make the initial purchase of a Series 2022-2 Note on the Series 2022-2 Closing Date or to increase its Purchaser Group Invested Amount on any Increase Date hereunder unless:

(i)           such Purchaser Group’s Commitment Percentage of the Series 2022-2 Initial Invested Amount or such Purchaser Group Increase Amount is equal to (A) $1,000,000 or an integral multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof or (B) if less, the excess of the Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to such Purchaser Group over the Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to such Purchaser Group;

(ii)           after giving effect to the Series 2022-2 Initial Invested Amount or such Increase Amount, the sum of the (x) the Purchaser Group Invested Amount and (y) any unfunded Delayed Amounts with respect to such Purchaser Group would not exceed the Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to such Purchaser Group;

(iii)           after giving effect to the Series 2022-2 Initial Invested Amount or such Increase Amount, no AESOP I Operating Lease Vehicle Deficiency would occur and be continuing;

(iv)           no Amortization Event or Potential Amortization Event (in each case, other than an Amortization Event or Potential Amortization Event in respect of another Series of Notes solely resulting from a Surety Default (as such term is defined in the Supplement pursuant to which such other Series of Notes was issued)) has occurred and is continuing on the Series 2022-2 Closing Date or such Increase Date, as applicable, or would occur and be continuing after giving effect to such Series 2022-2 Initial Invested Amount or such Increase;

(v)           not more than two Increases have occurred in the four Business Days immediately preceding the date of such Increase;

 50 

 

(vi)           all of the representations and warranties made by each of ABRCF, the Lessees, the Lessors and the Administrator in the Base Indenture, this Supplement and the Related Documents to which each is a party are true and correct in all material respects on and as of the Series 2022-2 Closing Date or such Increase Date, as the case may be, as if made on and as of such date (except to the extent such representations and warranties are expressly made as of another date); and

(vii)              all conditions precedent to the making of any Loan under the applicable Loan Agreements would be satisfied.

ABRCF’s acceptance of funds in connection with (x) the initial purchase of Series 2022-2 Notes on the Series 2022-2 Closing Date and (y) each Increase occurring on any Increase Date shall constitute a representation and warranty by ABRCF to the Purchaser Groups as of the Series 2022-2 Closing Date or such Increase Date (except to the extent such representations and warranties are expressly made as of another date), as the case may be, that all of the conditions contained in this Section 2.3(c) have been satisfied.

(d)           Upon receipt of any notice required by Section 2.3(a) or permitted by Section 2.3(e) from ABRCF, the Administrative Agent shall forward (by telecopy or electronic messaging system) a copy of such notice to each Non-Conduit Purchaser and the Funding Agent with respect to each CP Conduit Purchaser Group (or, with respect to any notice pursuant to Section 2.3(e) requiring a Delayed Funding Purchaser Group to decrease its Delayed Amount, the applicable Non-Conduit Purchaser or Funding Agent), no later than 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the day received. After receipt by any Funding Agent with respect to a CP Conduit Purchaser Group of such notice from the Administrative Agent, such Funding Agent shall, so long as the conditions set forth in Sections 2.3(a) and (c) are satisfied, promptly provide telephonic notice to the related CP Conduit Purchasers and the related APA Banks, of the Increase Date and of such CP Conduit Purchaser Group’s Commitment Percentage of the Series 2022-2 Initial Invested Amount or the Purchaser Group Increase Amount. Subject to Section 2.3(e), if such CP Conduit Purchasers elects to fund all or a portion of their Commitment Percentage of the Series 2022-2 Initial Invested Amount or the related Purchaser Group Increase Amount, each such CP Conduit Purchaser shall pay in immediately available funds its Commitment Percentage (or any portion thereof) of the Series 2022-2 Initial Invested Amount on the Series 2022-2 Closing Date or the amount of such Increase with respect to the Class A Notes on the related Increase Date, as the case may be, to the Funding Agent with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser Group for remittance to the Trustee for deposit into the Series 2022-2 Collection Account. Subject to Section 2.3(e), if such CP Conduit Purchasers do not fund the full amount of the Commitment Percentage of such CP Conduit Purchaser Group of the Series 2022-2 Initial Invested Amount or the CP Conduit Purchaser Group’s Purchaser Group Increase Amount, as the case may be, and the related APA Banks are required to fund the portion thereof not funded by the CP Conduit Purchasers, each such APA Bank shall pay in immediately available funds its APA Bank Percentage of such portion on the Series 2022-2 Closing Date or the related Increase Date, as the case may be, to the Funding Agent with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser Group for deposit in the Series 2022-2 Collection Account. Each Funding Agent shall remit the amounts received by it from its CP Conduit Purchasers or the related APA Banks pursuant to this Section 2.3(d) to the Trustee for deposit into the Series 2022-2 Collection Account. Subject to Section 2.3(e), so long as the conditions set forth in Sections 2.3(a) and (c)

 51 

 

are satisfied, each Non-Conduit Purchaser shall pay in immediately available funds the Commitment Percentage of such Non-Conduit Purchaser’s Series 2022-2 Initial Invested Amount or Purchaser Group Increase Amount on the related Increase Date to the Trustee for deposit into the Series 2022-2 Collection Account. So long as the conditions set forth in Sections 2.3(a) and (c) are satisfied, each Committed Note Purchaser shall pay in immediately available funds the Class R Initial Invested Amount on the Series 2022-2 Closing Date or the amount of such Increase Amount with respect to the Class R Notes on the related Increase Date to the Trustee for deposit into the Series 2022-2 Collection Account.

(e)           Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, any APA Bank or Non-Conduit Purchaser who shall have previously notified ABRCF in writing that it or any related Program Support Provider has incurred charges under, or in anticipation of, Basel III (which may include external charges incurred by the APA Bank, Non-Conduit Purchaser or Program Support Provider or internal charges incurred by any of their businesses) in respect of its Commitment hereunder or any agreement to support such Commitment, or in respect of its interest in the Series 2022-2 Notes, based on its “liquidity coverage ratio” calculated under Basel III, may, upon receipt of any Deferrable Increase Notice pursuant to Section 2.3(a), notify ABRCF in writing (a “Delayed Funding Notice”) on or prior to 12:00 noon (New York City time) on the second Business Day preceding the related Increase Date, of its intent to fund an amount up to its APA Bank Percentage or its Commitment Percentage, as applicable, of the related Increase Amount with respect to the Class A Notes (such amount, subject to any adjustment described below, the “Delayed Amount”) on a Business Day that is on or before the thirty-fifth (35th) day following the Increase Date specified in such Deferrable Increase Notice (the “Delayed Funding Date”) rather than on such Increase Date. If any APA Bank or Non-Conduit Purchaser provides a Delayed Funding Notice to ABRCF following ABRCF’s delivery of a notice of an Increase pursuant to Section 2.3(a), ABRCF may with written notice to the Administrative Agent delivered prior to 3:00 pm on the second Business Day preceding such Increase Date, (x) decrease the Increase Amount with respect to the Class A Notes with respect to such Deferrable Increase Notice (or revoke such Deferrable Increase Notice by decreasing the Increase Amount to zero) and/or (y) require any APA Bank or Non-Conduit Purchaser who has provided a Delayed Funding Notice to reduce the Delayed Amount with respect to such Increase by an amount no greater than the Non-Deferrable Draw Amount with respect to such Purchaser Group as of the related Increase Date. In the event that the Increase Amount with respect to such Deferrable Increase Notice is reduced, but not to zero, then any Delayed Amount with respect to any Purchaser Group shall be reduced on a pro rata basis unless otherwise specified by ABRCF pursuant to clause (y) above. No Purchaser Group that has provided a Delayed Funding Notice in respect of an Increase (each a “Delayed Funding Purchaser Group”) shall be considered to be in default of its obligation to fund its Delayed Amount pursuant to this Section 2.3 unless and until it has failed to fund the Delayed Amount (and/or the Delayed Funding Reimbursement Amount with respect to such Delayed Amount) on or before the Delayed Funding Date.

(f)           If (i) one or more Delayed Funding Purchaser Groups provides a Delayed Funding Notice to ABRCF in respect of any Increase Date and (ii) ABRCF shall not have decreased the related Increase Amount to zero or required each such Delayed Funding Purchaser Group to reduce the Delayed Amount with respect to such Increase to zero, in each case, pursuant to Section 2.3(e), the Administrative Agent shall, by no later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) on the Business Day preceding such Increase Date, direct each Purchaser Group

 52 

 

that is not a Delayed Funding Purchaser Group with respect to such Increase Date (each a “Non-Delayed Funding Purchaser Group”) to fund an additional portion of such Increase Amount with respect to the Class A Notes on such Increase Date equal to such Non-Delayed Funding Purchaser Group’s proportionate share (based upon the Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to such Non-Delayed Funding Purchaser Group relative to the sum of the Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amounts with respect to all Non-Delayed Funding Purchaser Groups) of the aggregate Delayed Amounts with respect to such Increase Date; provided that no Non-Delayed Funding Purchaser Group shall be required to fund any portion of the aggregate Delayed Amounts that would cause its Purchaser Group Invested Amount to exceed its Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amount. Subject to Section 2.3(a), in the case of a Non-Delayed Funding Purchaser Group that is a Non-Conduit Purchaser, such Non-Conduit Purchaser hereby agrees, or, in the case of a Non-Delayed Funding Purchaser Group that is a CP Conduit Purchaser Group, the CP Conduit in such CP Conduit Purchaser Group may agree, in its sole discretion, and the APA Banks in such CP Conduit Purchaser Group hereby agree, to fund such portion of the Increase Amount with respect to the Class A Notes on such Increase Date.

(g)           After the Non-Delayed Funding Purchaser Groups fund a Delayed Amount on any Increase Date in accordance with Section 2.3(f), the Delayed Funding Purchaser Group in respect of such Delayed Amount will be obligated to fund the Delayed Funding Reimbursement Amount with respect to such Delayed Amount on or before its Delayed Funding Date, irrespective of whether the Scheduled Expiry Date with respect to such Delayed Funding Purchaser Group shall have occurred on or prior to such Delayed Funding Date or ABRCF would be able to satisfy the conditions set forth in Section 2.3(a) to an Increase with respect to the Class A Notes in an amount equal to such Delayed Funding Reimbursement Amount on such Delayed Funding Date. Such Delayed Funding Purchaser Group shall fund such Delayed Funding Reimbursement Amount on such Delayed Funding Date by paying such amount to the Administrative Agent in immediately available funds, and the Administrative Agent shall distribute such funds to each such Non-Delayed Funding Purchaser Group, pro rata based on the relative amount of such Delayed Amount funded by such Non-Delayed Funding Purchaser Group on such Increase Date pursuant to Section 2.3(f).

Section 2.4.     Sales by CP Conduit Purchasers of Class A Notes to APA Banks. Notwithstanding any limitation to the contrary contained herein, each CP Conduit Purchaser may, in its own discretion, at any time, sell or assign all or any portion of its interest in its Class A Note to any Conduit Assignee or to the APA Banks with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser pursuant to, and subject to the terms and conditions of, the Asset Purchase Agreement with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser.

Section 2.5.     Procedure for Decreasing the Series 2022-2 Invested Amount; Optional Termination. (a) Subject to the following sentence, on any Business Day prior to the occurrence of an Amortization Event, upon the written request of ABRCF or the Administrator on behalf of ABRCF, the Series 2022-2 Invested Amount or during the Series 2022-2 Controlled Amortization Period the Class A Invested Amount only, may be reduced (a “Decrease”) by the Trustee’s withdrawing (as set forth in such request) (x) funds on deposit in the Series 2022-2 Excess Collection Account on such Business Day in an amount not to exceed the amount of such funds on deposit therein on such Business Day (after giving effect to any application pursuant to clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) of Section 3.2(f)) and/or (y) if such Business Day

 53 

 

is during the Series 2022-2 Controlled Amortization Period, funds on deposit in the Series 2022-2 Collection Account on such Business Day in an amount not to exceed the amount of such funds on deposit therein on such Business Day that were allocated to the Series 2022-2 Notes pursuant to Section 3.2(b)(ii) on or prior to such Business Day which have not previously been withdrawn therefrom pursuant to either this clause (y) to make a Decrease or pursuant to Section 3.5(a) to be paid to the holders of the Series 2022-2 Notes, and, in each case, depositing such funds into the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account and distributing such funds to the Administrative Agent on such Business Day in accordance with Section 3.5(b); provided that ABRCF shall have given the Administrative Agent and each Committed Note Purchaser (with a copy to the Trustee) irrevocable written notice (effective upon receipt) of the amount of such Decrease prior to 9:30 a.m. (New York City time) on the second Business Day prior to such Decrease; provided, further, that (other than in accordance with a Mandatory Decrease pursuant to Section 2.5(e)) any such Decrease shall be in an amount equal to $10,000,000 and integral multiples of $500,000 in excess thereof (or if such Decrease will be used to reduce one or more Non-Extending Purchaser Group’s Purchaser Group Invested Amounts, such Decrease may be in such amount as is necessary to reduce the Purchaser Group Invested Amounts of all such Non-Extending Purchaser Groups to zero). Notwithstanding the previous sentence, the Class R Notes shall not be subject to a Decrease during the Series 2022-2 Controlled Amortization Period. Upon each Decrease, the Administrative Agent shall indicate in its records such Decrease, the Purchaser Group Invested Amount outstanding with respect to each Purchaser Group after giving effect to such Decrease and the Class R Invested Amount outstanding with respect to each Committed Note Purchaser after giving effect to such Decrease. Upon receipt of any notice required by Section 2.5(a) from ABRCF, the Administrative Agent shall forward (by telecopy or electronic messaging system) a copy of such notice to each Non-Conduit Purchaser and the Funding Agent with respect to each CP Conduit Purchaser Group, no later than 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the Business Day received.

(b)           On any Business Day, ABRCF shall have the right to deliver an irrevocable written notice (an “Optional Termination Notice”) to the Administrative Agent, each Committed Note Purchaser, the Trustee, the Administrator, Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s and the Rating Agencies in which ABRCF declares that the Commitments shall terminate on the date (the “Optional Termination Date”) set forth in such notice (which date, in any event, shall be a Distribution Date not less than twenty Business Days from the date on which such notice is delivered). Upon receipt of any Optional Termination Notice from ABRCF, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Non-Conduit Purchaser and the Funding Agent with respect to each CP Conduit Purchaser Group thereof.

(c)           From and after the Optional Termination Date, the Series 2022-2 Rapid Amortization Period shall commence for all purposes under this Supplement, the Base Indenture and the Related Documents.

(d)           If there are Principal Collections on deposit in the Series 2022-2 Excess Collection Account on any Business Day on which the Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to any Non-Extending Purchaser Group shall not have been reduced to zero and ABRCF would be permitted under the terms of Section 2.5(a) to effect a Decrease with such funds, ABRCF shall request such a Decrease in accordance with Section 2.5(a) on the earliest possible date.

 54 

 

(e)           On the Series Closing Date with respect to the issuance of any Series of Notes (other than Variable Funding Notes) following the Series 2022-2 Closing Date (any such issuance, a “Subsequent Term Note Issuance”), ABRCF shall deposit into the Series 2022-2 Excess Collection Account an amount equal to the lesser of (i) the proceeds of the issuance of such Series of Notes and (ii) the Class A Invested Amount as of such date, and shall use such amount to make a Decrease in accordance with Section 2.5(a) (such a Decrease, a “Mandatory Decrease”).

Section 2.6.     Increases and Reductions of the Commitments; Extensions of the Commitments; Replacement of Purchaser Groups. (a) ABRCF may from time to time request that any Purchaser Group agree to increase its Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amount. An increase in such amount shall be effective hereunder if such Purchaser Group shall have agreed in its sole discretion to such increase. If any such Purchaser Group agrees to ABRCF’s proposed increase, the Class R Maximum Invested Amount for each Committed Note Purchaser shall be automatically increased in an amount so that it maintains its proportional share of the Series 2022-2 Maximum Invested Amount immediately prior to such increase. In addition to an increase to the Class R Maximum Invested Amount pursuant to the previous sentence, the Class R Maximum Invested Amount may be increased at any time with or without a corresponding increase to the Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amount upon notice from ABRCF to the Committed Note Purchasers.

(b)           If ABRCF desires to extend the Scheduled Expiry Date with respect to the Purchaser Groups, ABRCF shall notify the Administrative Agent and each Committed Note Purchaser at least 60 days prior to such Scheduled Expiry Date of its desire to extend the Scheduled Expiry Date with respect to the Purchaser Groups, whereupon the Administrative Agent shall notify each Non-Conduit Purchaser and the Funding Agent with respect to each CP Conduit Purchaser Group of ABRCF’s desire to so extend the Scheduled Expiry Date. Each Non-Conduit Purchaser and each Funding Agent, on behalf of its CP Conduit Purchaser Group, shall notify the Administrative Agent and ABRCF in writing of whether its Related Purchaser Group agrees to an extension of the Scheduled Expiry Date with respect to such Purchaser Group; provided that failure by a Non-Conduit Purchaser or a Funding Agent to respond to such request shall not be construed as a consent by such Purchaser Group to such extension. The decision to extend or not extend shall be made by each Purchaser Group in its sole discretion. In the event that any Purchaser Group desires to extend its Scheduled Expiry Date for an amount that is less than its Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amount prior to ABRCF’s request for an extension, ABRCF, in its sole discretion, may accept such extension; provided, however, that such Purchaser Group (x) shall be deemed to be a Non-Extending Purchaser Group for purposes of Section 3.5 having a Purchaser Group Invested Amount equal to the excess of its Purchaser Group Invested Amount over a percentage of its Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amount that will be available after the extension of its Scheduled Expiry Date equal to the percentage equivalent of a fraction, the numerator of which is the sum of the Purchaser Group Invested Amounts with respect to all Extending Purchaser Groups, other than such Purchaser Group and any other Purchaser Group reducing its Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amount, and the denominator of which is the sum of the Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amounts of all Extending Purchaser Groups, other than such Purchaser Group and any other Purchaser Group reducing its Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amount and (y) shall be deemed to be an Extending Purchaser Group with a Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amount equal to the

 55 

 

portion of its Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amount that will be available after the extension of its Scheduled Expiry Date. In connection with any request by ABRCF to extend the Scheduled Expiry Date pursuant to this Section 2.6(b), ABRCF shall provide (i) to the Administrative Agent, who shall provide to each Purchaser Group, on or prior to the effective date of any such extension, a certificate of the principal financial officer of ABRCF to the effect set forth in Schedule 8.3(d) of the Base Indenture and (ii) notice to the Rating Agencies, Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s of its request to extend the Scheduled Expiry Date.

(c)           On any Business Day during the Series 2022-2 Revolving Period, ABRCF may, upon two (2) Business Days’ prior written notice to the Administrative Agent (effective upon receipt) (with copies to the Administrator and the Trustee) reduce the Class A Maximum Invested Amount in an amount equal to $10,000,000 or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof; provided that no such termination or reduction shall be permitted if, after giving effect thereto and to any reduction in the Class A Invested Amount on such date, the Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to any Purchaser Group would exceed the Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to such Purchaser Group then in effect. Any reduction in the Class A Maximum Invested Amount shall be made on a pro rata basis to the Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amounts with respect to the Purchaser Groups, based on the Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to each Purchaser Group. Once reduced, the Maximum Purchaser Group Invested Amounts may not be subsequently reinstated without each such Purchaser Group’s prior written consent, which consent shall be granted or not in the sole discretion of such Purchaser Group.

(b)           On any Business Day, ABRCF may, subject to Section 2.7(c), elect to allocate all or any portion of the Available CP Funding Amount with respect to any Match Funding CP Conduit Purchaser, to one or more CP Tranches with CP Rate Periods commencing on such Business Day by giving the Administrative Agent and the Funding Agent with respect to such Match Funding CP Conduit Purchaser irrevocable written or telephonic (confirmed in writing) notice thereof, which notice must be received by such Funding Agent prior to 3:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the second Business Day prior to such Business Day. Such notice shall specify (i) the applicable Business Day, (ii) the CP Rate Period for each CP Tranche to which a portion of the Available CP Funding Amount with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser Group is to be allocated and (iii) the portion of such Available CP Funding Amount being allocated to each such CP Tranche. On any Business Day, ABRCF may, subject to Sections 2.7(c) and 7.4, elect to allocate all or any portion of the APA Bank Funded Amount with respect to any CP Conduit Purchaser Group to the SOFR Tranche by giving the Administrative Agent and the Funding Agent with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser Group irrevocable written or telephonic (confirmed in writing) notice thereof, which notice must be received by such Funding Agent prior to 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) three Business Days prior to such Business Day. Such notice shall specify (i) the applicable Business Day, and (ii) the portion of such APA Bank Funded Amount being allocated to the SOFR Tranche. Upon receipt of any such notice, the Funding Agent with respect to a CP Conduit Purchaser Group shall notify the CP Conduit Purchaser and the APA Bank with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser Group of the contents of such notice promptly upon receipt thereof.

(c)           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 2.7, (i) (A) each Match Funding CP Conduit Purchaser shall approve the length of each CP Rate Period and the portion of the Available CP Funding Amount with respect to such Match Funding CP Conduit Purchaser allocated to such CP Rate Period, (B) such Match Funding CP Conduit Purchaser may select, in its sole discretion, any new CP Rate Period if (x) ABRCF does not provide notice of a new CP Rate Period on a timely basis or (y) the Funding Agent with respect to such Match Funding CP Conduit Purchaser, on behalf of such Match Funding CP Conduit Purchaser, determines, in its sole discretion, that the CP Rate Period requested by ABRCF is unavailable or for any reason commercially undesirable and (C) the portion of the Available CP Funding Amount with respect to such Match Funding CP Conduit Purchaser allocable to each CP Tranche must be in an amount equal to $1,000,000 or an integral multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof and (ii) after the occurrence and during the continuance of any Amortization Event or Potential Amortization Event, ABRCF may not elect to allocate any portion of the APA Bank Funded Amount with respect to any CP Conduit Purchaser Group to the SOFR Tranche.

(d)           On any Business Day, a Match Funding CP Conduit Purchaser may elect that ABRCF no longer be permitted to select CP Tranches in accordance with Sections 2.7(b) and (c) in respect of the CP Conduit Funded Amount with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser by giving ABRCF and the Administrative Agent irrevocable written notice thereof, which notice must be received by ABRCF and the Administrative Agent at least one Business Day prior to such Business Day. On any Business Day, a Pooled Funding CP Conduit Purchaser may with the prior written consent of the Administrator (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld) elect thereafter to allow ABRCF to select CP Tranches in accordance with Sections 2.7(b) and (c) in respect of the CP Conduit Funded Amount with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser by giving ABRCF and the Administrative Agent irrevocable written notice thereof,

 59 

 

which notice and consent must be received by ABRCF and the Administrative Agent at least one Business Day prior to such election. Any CP Conduit Purchaser making an election to change the manner in which its funding costs in respect of its Class A Note are allocated in accordance with this Section 2.7(d) will be both a Match Funding CP Conduit Purchaser and a Pooled Funding CP Conduit Purchaser during the period that its Class A Note is funded on both a “pooled” and “match funded” basis and its Monthly Funding Costs during that period will be calculated accordingly.

(e)           ABRCF shall pay with funds available pursuant to Section 3.3(a) to the Administrative Agent, for the account of each Purchaser Group, on each Distribution Date, a commitment fee with respect to the Series 2022-2 Interest Period ending on the day preceding such Distribution Date (the “Commitment Fee”) during the period from the Series 2022-2 Closing Date to and including the Expiry Date with respect to such Purchaser Group equal to the product of (x) the Commitment Fee Rate with respect to such Purchaser Group as of the last day of such Series 2022-2 Interest Period and (y) the excess of (i) the average daily Commitment Amount with respect to such Purchaser Group during such Series 2022-2 Interest Period over (ii) the average daily Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to such Purchaser Group during such Series 2022-2 Interest Period. The Commitment Fees shall be payable monthly in arrears on each Distribution Date and shall be considered interest on the Series 2022-2 Notes for purposes of calculating the Accrued Amounts with respect to the Series 2022-2 Notes.

(f)           [Reserved].

(g)           With respect to the Class A Notes, calculations of per annum rates (including Daily Simple SOFR) under this Supplement shall be made on the basis of a 360- (or 365-/366- in the case of interest on the Floating Tranche based on the Prime Rate) day year. With respect to the Class R Notes, calculations of per annum rates under this Supplement shall be made on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months. Calculations of Commitment Fees shall be made on the basis of a 360-day year. Each determination of the Alternate Base Rate or Daily Simple SOFR by the Administrative Agent or by any Funding Agent or Non-Conduit Purchaser shall be conclusive and binding upon each of the parties hereto in the absence of manifest error.

(h)           On any date prior to the occurrence of an Amortization Event on which more than 50% of the Class A Invested Amount as of such date is funded by one or more APA Banks, each Non-Conduit Purchaser may elect, in its sole discretion, by delivering written notice to ABRCF, the Administrator and the Administrative Agent (a “Pricing Increase Notice”), to have the Monthly Funding Costs with respect to such Non-Conduit Purchaser calculated for each day of a Series 2022-2 Interest Period that more than 50% of the Class A Invested Amount is funded by one or more APA Banks at a rate per annum equal to the sum of (A) Adjusted Daily Simple SOFR with respect to such day and (B) the Applicable Margin with respect to the SOFR Tranche on such day (rather than Adjusted Daily Simple SOFR with respect to such day and the Program Fee Rate on such day). At any time following delivery of a Pricing Increase Notice by a Non-Conduit Purchaser, such Non-Conduit Purchaser may, in its sole discretion, rescind such election by delivering written notice thereof to ABRCF and the Administrative Agent (a “Pricing Increase Rescission”).

Section 2.8.     Indemnification by ABRCF. ABRCF agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Trustee, the Administrative Agent, each Funding Agent, each CP Conduit Purchaser, each APA Bank, each Non-Conduit Purchaser and each of their respective officers, directors, agents and employees (each, a “Company indemnified person”) from and against any loss, liability, expense, damage or injury suffered or sustained by (a “Claim”) such Company indemnified person by reason of (i) any acts, omissions or alleged acts or omissions arising out of, or relating to, activities of ABRCF pursuant to the Indenture or the other Related Documents to which it is a party, (ii) a breach of any representation or warranty made or deemed made by ABRCF (or any of its officers) in the Indenture or other Related Document or (iii) a failure by ABRCF to comply with any applicable law or regulation or to perform its covenants, agreements, duties or obligations required to be performed or observed by it in accordance with the provisions of the Indenture or the other Related Documents, including, but not limited to, any judgment, award, settlement, reasonable attorneys’ fees and other reasonable costs or expenses incurred in connection with the defense of any actual or threatened action, proceeding or claim, except to the extent such loss, liability, expense, damage or injury resulted from the gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of such Company indemnified person or its officers, directors, agents, principals, employees or employers or includes any Excluded Taxes; provided that any payments made by ABRCF pursuant to this Section 2.8 shall be made solely from funds available pursuant to Section 3.3(e), shall be non-recourse other than with respect to such funds, and shall not constitute a claim against ABRCF to the extent that such funds are insufficient to make such payment.

Section 2.9.     Funding Agents. (a)  The Funding Agent with respect to each CP Conduit Purchaser Group is hereby authorized to record on each Business Day the CP Conduit Funded Amount with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser Group and the aggregate amount of Discount accruing with respect thereto on such Business Day and the APA Bank Funded Amount with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser Group and the amount of interest accruing with respect thereto on such Business Day and, based on such recordations, to determine the Monthly Funding Costs with respect to each Series 2022-2 Interest Period and such CP Conduit Purchaser Group. Any such recordation by a Funding Agent, absent manifest error, shall constitute prima facie evidence of the accuracy of the information so recorded. Furthermore, the Funding Agent with respect to each CP Conduit Purchaser Group will maintain records sufficient to identify the percentage interest of the related CP Conduit Purchasers and each APA Bank with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser Group holding an interest in the Series 2022-2 Note registered in the name of such Funding Agent and any amounts owing thereunder.

(b)           Upon receipt of funds from the Administrative Agent on each Distribution Date and the date of any Decrease, each Funding Agent shall pay such funds to the related CP Conduit Purchasers and/or the related APA Bank owed such funds in accordance with the recordations maintained by it in accordance with Section 2.9(a) and the Asset Purchase Agreement with respect to such CP Conduit Purchaser. If a Funding Agent shall have paid to any CP Conduit Purchaser or APA Bank any funds that (i) must be returned for any reason (including bankruptcy) or (ii) exceeds that which such CP Conduit Purchaser or APA Bank was entitled to receive, such amount shall be promptly repaid to such Funding Agent by such CP Conduit Purchaser or APA Bank.

(c)           Each Funding Agent hereby notifies ABRCF that: (i) such Funding Agent and/or its affiliates may from time to time purchase, hold or sell, as principal and/or agent, Commercial Paper issued by the CP Conduit Purchasers for which it acts as Funding Agent; (ii) such Funding Agent and/or its affiliates act as administrative agent for the related CP Conduit Purchasers, and as administrative agent such Funding Agent manages such CP Conduit Purchasers’ issuance of Commercial Paper, including the selection of amount and tenor of Commercial Paper issuance, and the discount or interest rate applicable thereto; (iii) such Funding Agent and/or its affiliates act as a Commercial Paper dealer for such CP Conduit Purchasers; and (iv) such Funding Agent’s activities as administrative agent and Commercial Paper dealer for such CP Conduit Purchasers, and as a purchaser or seller of Commercial Paper, impact the interest or discount rate applicable to the Commercial Paper issued by such CP Conduit Purchasers, which impact the Monthly Funding Costs paid by ABRCF hereunder. ABRCF hereby (x) acknowledges the foregoing and agrees that each such Funding Agent does not warrant or accept any responsibility for, and shall not have any liability with respect to, the interest or discount rate paid by the CP Conduit Purchasers for which it acts as Funding Agent in connection with its Commercial Paper issuance; (y) acknowledges that the discount or interest rate at which such Funding Agent and/or its affiliates purchase or sell Commercial Paper will be determined by such Funding Agent and/or its affiliates in their sole discretion and may differ from the discount or interest rate applicable to comparable transactions entered into by such Funding Agent and/or its affiliates on the relevant date; and (z) waives any conflict of interest arising by reason of such Funding Agent and/or its affiliates acting as administrative agent and Commercial Paper dealer for the applicable CP Conduit Purchasers while acting as purchaser or seller of Commercial Paper.

If the actual amount of the Monthly Funding Costs with respect to any Purchaser Group for a Series 2022-2 Interest Period is less than or greater than the amount thereof estimated by the Funding Agent or the Non-Conduit Purchaser with respect to its Related Purchaser Group on a Determination Date, such Funding Agent or Non-Conduit Purchaser shall notify the Administrator and the Administrative Agent thereof on the next succeeding Determination Date and the Administrator will reduce or increase the Monthly Funding Costs with respect to such Purchaser Group for the next succeeding Series 2022-2 Interest Period accordingly. The Administrator shall determine the Monthly Funding Costs and the Class A Note Rate for the last Series 2022-2 Interest Period on the Determination Date immediately preceding the final Distribution Date based on the information provided by the Funding Agents and the Non-Conduit Purchasers.

 68 

 

Reserve Account and deposit in the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account on such Distribution Date an amount equal to the lesser of the Series 2022-2 Available Reserve Account Amount and such insufficiency. The Trustee shall withdraw such amount from the Series 2022-2 Reserve Account and deposit such amount in the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account.

Section 3.7.     Series 2022-2 Reserve Account.

(a)           Establishment of Series 2022-2 Reserve Account.

The Series 2022-2 Reserve Account shall be maintained (i) with a Qualified Institution, or (ii) as a segregated trust account with the corporate trust department of a depository institution or trust company having corporate trust powers and acting as trustee for funds deposited in the Series 2022-2 Reserve Account; provided that, if at any time such Qualified Institution is no longer a Qualified Institution or the credit rating of any securities issued by such depositary institution or trust company shall be reduced to below “BBB-” by Standard & Poor’s, “Baa2” by Moody’s or “BBB (low)” by DBRS, then ABRCF shall, within 30 days of such reduction, establish a new Series 2022-2 Reserve Account with a new Qualified Institution. If the Series 2022-2 Reserve Account is not maintained in accordance with the previous sentence, ABRCF shall establish a new Series 2022-2 Reserve Account, within ten (10) Business Days after obtaining knowledge of such fact, which complies with such sentence, and shall instruct the Series 2022-2 Agent in writing to transfer all cash and investments from the non-qualifying Series 2022-2 Reserve Account into the new Series 2022-2 Reserve Account. Initially, the Series 2022-2 Reserve Account will be established with The Bank of New York Mellon.

All such Permitted Investments will be credited to the Series 2022-2 Reserve Account and any such Permitted Investments that constitute (i) physical property (and that is not either a United States security entitlement or a security entitlement) shall be physically delivered to the Trustee; (ii) United States security entitlements or security entitlements shall be controlled (as defined in Section 8-106 of the New York UCC) by the Trustee pending maturity or disposition, and (iii) uncertificated securities (and not United States security entitlements) shall be delivered to the Trustee by causing the Trustee to become the registered holder of such securities. The Trustee shall, at the expense of ABRCF, take such action as is required to maintain the Trustee’s security interest in the Permitted Investments credited to the Series 2022-2 Reserve Account. ABRCF shall not direct the Trustee to dispose of (or permit the disposal of) any Permitted Investments prior to the

 78 

 

maturity thereof to the extent such disposal would result in a loss of purchase price of such Permitted Investments. In the absence of written investment instructions hereunder, funds on deposit in the Series 2022-2 Reserve Account shall remain uninvested.

(c)          Earnings from Series 2022-2 Reserve Account. All interest and earnings (net of losses and investment expenses) paid on funds on deposit in the Series 2022-2 Reserve Account shall be deemed to be on deposit therein and available for distribution.

Section 3.9.     Series 2022-2 Distribution Account.

(a)           Establishment of Series 2022-2 Distribution Account. The Trustee shall establish and maintain in the name of the Series 2022-2 Agent for the benefit of the Series 2022-2 Noteholders, or cause to be established and maintained, an account (the “Series 2022-2 Distribution Account”), bearing a designation clearly indicating that the funds deposited therein are held for the benefit of the Series 2022-2 Noteholders. The Series 2022-2 Distribution Account shall be maintained (i) with a Qualified Institution, or (ii) as a segregated trust account with the corporate trust department of a depository institution or trust company having corporate

 84 

 

trust powers and acting as trustee for funds deposited in the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account; provided that, if at any time such Qualified Institution is no longer a Qualified Institution or the credit rating of any securities issued by such depositary institution or trust company shall be reduced to below “BBB-” by Standard & Poor’s, “Baa3” by Moody’s or “BBB (low)” by DBRS, then ABRCF shall, within 30 days of such reduction, establish a new Series 2022-2 Distribution Account with a new Qualified Institution. If the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account is not maintained in accordance with the previous sentence, ABRCF shall establish a new Series 2022-2 Distribution Account, within ten (10) Business Days after obtaining knowledge of such fact, which complies with such sentence, and shall instruct the Series 2022-2 Agent in writing to transfer all cash and investments from the non-qualifying Series 2022-2 Distribution Account into the new Series 2022-2 Distribution Account. Initially, the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account will be established with The Bank of New York Mellon.

(b)           Administration of the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account. The Administrator may instruct the institution maintaining the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account to invest funds on deposit in the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account from time to time in Permitted Investments; provided, however, that any such investment shall mature not later than the Business Day prior to the Distribution Date following the date on which such funds were received, unless any Permitted Investment held in the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account is held with the Paying Agent, then such investment may mature on such Distribution Date and such funds shall be available for withdrawal on or prior to such Distribution Date. All such Permitted Investments will be credited to the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account and any such Permitted Investments that constitute (i) physical property (and that is not either a United States security entitlement or a security entitlement) shall be physically delivered to the Trustee; (ii) United States security entitlements or security entitlements shall be controlled (as defined in Section 8-106 of the New York UCC) by the Trustee pending maturity or disposition, and (iii) uncertificated securities (and not United States security entitlements) shall be delivered to the Trustee by causing the Trustee to become the registered holder of such securities. The Trustee shall, at the expense of ABRCF, take such action as is required to maintain the Trustee’s security interest in the Permitted Investments credited to the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account. ABRCF shall not direct the Trustee to dispose of (or permit the disposal of) any Permitted Investments prior to the maturity thereof to the extent such disposal would result in a loss of purchase price of such Permitted Investments. In the absence of written investment instructions hereunder, funds on deposit in the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account shall remain uninvested.

(c)           Earnings from Series 2022-2 Distribution Account. All interest and earnings (net of losses and investment expenses) paid on funds on deposit in the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account shall be deemed to be on deposit and available for distribution.

The Series 2022-2 Distribution Account Collateral shall be under the sole dominion and control of the Trustee for the benefit of the Series 2022-2 Noteholders. The Series 2022-2 Agent hereby agrees (i) to act as the securities intermediary (as defined in Section 8-102(a)(14) of the New York UCC) with respect to the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account; (ii) that its jurisdiction as securities intermediary is New York; (iii) that each item of property (whether investment property, financial asset, security, instrument or cash) credited to the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account shall be treated as a financial asset (as defined in Section 8-102(a)(9) of the New York UCC) and (iv) to comply with any entitlement order (as defined in Section 8-102(a)(8) of the New York UCC) issued by the Trustee.

Section 3.10.     Series 2022-2 Demand Notes Constitute Additional Collateral for Class A Notes. In order to secure and provide for the repayment and payment of the obligations with respect to the Class A Notes, ABRCF hereby grants a security interest in and assigns, pledges, grants, transfers and sets over to the Trustee, for the benefit of the Class A Noteholders, all of ABRCF’s right, title and interest in and to the following (whether now or hereafter existing or acquired): (i) the Series 2022-2 Demand Notes; (ii) all certificates and instruments, if any, representing or evidencing the Series 2022-2 Demand Notes; and (iii) all proceeds of any and all of the foregoing, including, without limitation, cash. On the date hereof, ABRCF shall deliver to the Trustee, for the benefit of the Series 2022-2 Noteholders, each Series 2022-2 Demand Note, endorsed in blank. The Trustee, for the benefit of the Series 2022-2 Noteholders, shall be the only Person authorized to make a demand for payments on the Series 2022-2 Demand Notes.

ARTICLE V

RIGHT TO WAIVE PURCHASE RESTRICTIONS

Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in the Indenture or the Related Documents, upon the Trustee’s receipt of notice from any Lessee, any Borrower or ABRCF that the Lessees, the Borrowers and ABRCF have determined to increase any Series 2022-2 Maximum Amount or the percentage set forth in clause (y) of any of paragraphs (ii) through (xiii) of the definition of Series 2022-2 Incremental Enhancement Amount, (such notice, a “Waiver Request”), each Series 2022-2 Noteholder may, at its option, waive any Series 2022-2 Maximum Amount or any increase in the Series 2022-2 Required Enhancement Amount based upon clause (y) of any of paragraphs (ii), (iii), (iv), (v), (vi) or (vii) of the definition of the Series 2022-2 Incremental Enhancement Amount (collectively, a “Waivable Amount”) if (i) no Amortization Event exists, (ii) the Requisite Noteholders consent to such waiver and (iii) 60 days’ prior written notice of such proposed waiver is provided to the Rating Agencies, Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s by the Trustee.

Upon receipt by the Trustee of a Waiver Request (a copy of which the Trustee shall promptly provide to the Rating Agencies), all amounts which would otherwise be allocated to the Series 2022-2 Excess Collection Account (collectively, the “Designated Amounts”) from the date the Trustee receives a Waiver Request through the Consent Period Expiration Date will be held by the Trustee in the Series 2022-2 Collection Account for ratable distribution as described below.

Within ten (10) Business Days after the Trustee receives a Waiver Request, the Trustee shall furnish notice thereof to the Administrative Agent, which notice shall be accompanied by a form of consent (each a “Consent”) in the form of Exhibit C hereto by which the Series 2022-2 Noteholders may, on or before the Consent Period Expiration Date, consent to waiver of the applicable Waivable Amount. Upon receipt of notice of a Waiver Request, the Administrative Agent shall forward a copy of such request together with the Consent to each Non-Conduit Purchaser and Funding Agent with respect to its Related Purchaser Group. If the Trustee receives the Consents from the Requisite Noteholders agreeing to waiver of the applicable Waivable Amount within forty-five (45) days after the Trustee notifies the Administrative Agent of a Waiver Request (the day on which such forty-five (45) day period expires, the “Consent Period Expiration Date”), (i) the applicable Waivable Amount shall be deemed waived by the consenting Series 2022-2 Noteholders, (ii) the Trustee will distribute the Designated Amounts as set forth below and (iii) the Trustee shall promptly (but in any event within two days) provide the Rating Agencies, Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s with notice of such waiver. Any Purchaser Group from whom the Trustee has not received a Consent on or before the Consent Period Expiration Date will be deemed not to have consented to such waiver.

If the Trustee receives Consents from the Requisite Noteholders on or before the Consent Period Expiration Date, then on the immediately following Distribution Date, upon receipt of written direction from the Administrator the Trustee will pay the Designated Amounts to the Administrative Agent for the accounts of the non-consenting Purchaser Groups. Upon the receipt of funds from the Trustee pursuant to this Article V, the Administrative Agent shall pay the Designated Amounts as follows:

 90 

 

(i)          to each Non-Conduit Purchaser or Funding Agent with respect to a non-consenting Purchaser Group, such Purchaser Group’s pro rata share based on the Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to such Purchaser Group relative to the Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to all non-consenting Purchaser Groups of the Designated Amounts up to the amount required to reduce to zero the Purchaser Group Invested Amounts with respect to all non-consenting Purchaser Groups; and

(ii)          any remaining Designated Amounts to the Series 2022-2 Excess Collection Account.

If the amount distributed pursuant to clause (i) of the preceding paragraph is not sufficient to reduce the Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to each non-consenting Purchaser Group to zero on the date specified therein, then on each day following such Distribution Date, the Administrator will allocate to the Series 2022-2 Collection Account on a daily basis all Designated Amounts collected on such day. On each following Distribution Date, the Trustee will withdraw such Designated Amounts from the Series 2022-2 Collection Account and deposit the same in the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account for distribution to the Administrative Agent for the accounts of the non-consenting Purchaser Groups. Upon the receipt of funds from the Trustee pursuant to this Article V, the Administrative Agent shall pay the Designated Amounts as follows:

(a)          to each Non-Conduit Purchaser or Funding Agent with respect to a non-consenting Purchaser Group, such Purchaser Group’s pro rata share based on the Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to such Purchaser Group relative to the Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to all non-consenting Purchaser Groups of the Designated Amounts in the Series 2022-2 Collection Account as of the applicable Determination Date up to the amount required to reduce to zero the Purchaser Group Invested Amounts with respect to all non-consenting Purchaser Groups; and

(b)          any remaining Designated Amounts to the Series 2022-2 Excess Collection Account.

If the Requisite Noteholders do not timely consent to such waiver, the Designated Amounts will be re-allocated to the Series 2022-2 Excess Collection Account for allocation and distribution in accordance with the terms of the Indenture and the Related Documents.

In the event that the Series 2022-2 Rapid Amortization Period shall commence after receipt by the Trustee of a Waiver Request, all such Designated Amounts will thereafter be considered Principal Collections allocated to the Series 2022-2 Noteholders.

ARTICLE VII

CHANGE IN CIRCUMSTANCES

Section 7.1.     Increased Costs. (a) If any Change in Law (except with respect to Taxes which shall be governed by Section 7.2) shall:

(i)           impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, any Affected Party; or

(ii)           impose on any Affected Party any other condition affecting the Indenture or the Related Documents or the funding of the SOFR Tranche by such Affected Party;

and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Affected Party of making, converting into, continuing or maintaining the SOFR Tranche (or maintaining its obligation to do so) or to reduce any amount received or receivable by such Affected Party hereunder or in connection herewith (whether principal, interest or otherwise), then ABRCF will pay to such Affected Party such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Affected Party for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.

(b)           If any Affected Party determines that any Change in Law regarding capital requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Affected Party’s capital or the capital of any corporation controlling such Affected Party as a consequence of its obligations hereunder to a level below that which such Affected Party or such corporation could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Affected Party’s or such corporation’s policies with respect to capital adequacy), then from time to time, ABRCF shall pay to such Affected Party such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Affected Party for any such reduction suffered.

(c)           A certificate of an Affected Party setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Affected Party as specified in subsections (a) and (b) of this Section 7.1 shall be delivered to ABRCF (with a copy to the Administrative Agent and the Funding Agent, if any, with respect to such Affected Party) and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Any payments made by ABRCF pursuant to this Section 7.1 shall be made solely from funds available in the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account for the payment of Article VII Costs, shall be non-recourse other than with respect to such funds, and shall not constitute a claim against ABRCF to the extent that insufficient funds exist to make such payment. The agreements in this Section 7.1 shall survive the termination of this Supplement and the Base Indenture and the payment of all amounts payable hereunder and thereunder.

(d)           Failure or delay on the part of an Affected Party to demand compensation pursuant to this Section 7.1 shall not constitute a waiver of such Affected Party’s right to demand such compensation; provided that ABRCF shall not be required to compensate any Affected Party pursuant to this Section 7.1 for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 270 days prior to the date that such Affected Party notifies ABRCF of such Affected Party’s intention to claim compensation under this Section 7.1; provided, further, that, if the Change in Law

 95 

 

giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 270-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.

(e)           ABRCF acknowledges that any Affected Party may institute measures in anticipation of a Change in Law, and may commence allocating charges to or seeking compensation from ABRCF under this Section 7.1, in advance of the effective date of such Change in Law and ABRCF agrees to pay such charges or compensation to the applicable Affected Party following demand therefor in accordance with the terms of this Section 7.1 without regard to whether such effective date has occurred.

Section 7.2.     Taxes. (a) Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of ABRCF hereunder shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes; provided that if ABRCF shall be required to deduct any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes from such payments, then (i) subject to Section 7.2(c) below, the sum payable shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 7.2) the recipient receives an amount equal to the sum that it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) ABRCF shall make such deductions and (iii) ABRCF shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.

(b)           In addition, ABRCF shall pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.

(c)           ABRCF shall indemnify the Administrative Agent, each Non-Conduit Purchaser, each Funding Agent, each Program Support Provider and each member of each CP Conduit Purchaser Group within the later of 10 days after written demand therefor and the Distribution Date next following such demand for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes paid by the Administrative Agent, such Non-Conduit Purchaser, such Funding Agent, such Program Support Provider or such member of such CP Conduit Purchaser Group on or with respect to any payment by or on account of any obligation of ABRCF hereunder or under the Indenture (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 7.2) and any penalties, interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority; provided that no Person shall be indemnified pursuant to this Section 7.2(c) or entitled to receive additional amounts under the proviso of Section 7.2(a) to the extent that the reason for such indemnification results from the failure by such Person to comply with the provisions of Section 7.2(e) or (g). A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to ABRCF by the Administrative Agent, any Non-Conduit Purchaser, any Funding Agent, any Program Support Provider or any member of any CP Conduit Purchaser Group shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Any payments made by ABRCF pursuant to this Section 7.2 shall be made solely from funds available in the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account for the payment of Article VII Costs, shall be non-recourse other than with respect to such funds, and shall not constitute a claim against ABRCF to the extent that insufficient funds exist to make such payment. The agreements in this Section shall survive the termination of this Supplement and the Base Indenture and the payment of all amounts payable hereunder and thereunder.

 96 

 

(d)           As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes by ABRCF to a Governmental Authority, ABRCF shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.

(e)           The Administrative Agent, each Non-Conduit Purchaser, each Funding Agent, each member of each CP Conduit Purchaser Group and each Program Support Provider, if entitled to an exemption from or reduction of an Indemnified Tax or Other Tax with respect to payments made hereunder or under the Indenture shall (to the extent legally able to do so) deliver to ABRCF (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) such properly completed and executed documentation prescribed by applicable law and reasonably requested by ABRCF on the later of (i) 30 Business Days after such request is made and the applicable forms are provided to the Administrative Agent, such Non-Conduit Purchaser, such Funding Agent, such member of such CP Conduit Purchaser Group or such Program Support Provider or (ii) thirty (30) Business Days before prescribed by applicable law as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or with an exemption from or reduction of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes.

(f)           If the Administrative Agent, any Non-Conduit Purchaser, any Funding Agent, any Program Support Provider or any member of any CP Conduit Purchaser Group receives a refund solely in respect of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes, it shall pay over such refund to ABRCF to the extent that it has already received indemnity payments or additional amounts pursuant to this Section 7.2 with respect to such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes giving rise to the refund, net of all out-of-pocket expenses and without interest (other than interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided, however, that ABRCF shall, upon request of the Administrative Agent, such Non-Conduit Purchaser, such Funding Agent, such Program Support Provider or such member of such CP Conduit Purchaser Group, repay such refund (plus interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to the Administrative Agent, such Non-Conduit Purchaser, such Funding Agent, such Program Support Provider or such member of such CP Conduit Purchaser Group if the Administrative Agent, such Non-Conduit Purchaser, such Funding Agent, such Program Support Provider or such member of such CP Conduit Purchaser Group is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Nothing contained herein shall require the Administrative Agent, any Non-Conduit Purchaser, any Funding Agent, any Program Support Provider or any member of any CP Conduit Purchaser Group to make its tax returns (or any other information relating to its taxes which it deems confidential) available to ABRCF or any other Person.

(g)           The Administrative Agent, each Non-Conduit Purchaser, each Funding Agent, each Program Support Provider and each member of each CP Conduit Purchaser Group (other than any such entity which is a domestic corporation) shall:

(i)           upon or prior to becoming a party hereto, deliver to ABRCF and the Administrative Agent two (2) duly completed copies of IRS Form W-8BEN, W-8ECI or W-9, or successor applicable forms, as the case may be, establishing a complete exemption from withholding of United States federal income taxes or backup

 97 

 

withholding taxes with respect to payments under the Series 2022-2 Notes and this Supplement;

(ii)           deliver to ABRCF and the Administrative Agent two (2) further copies of any such form or certification establishing a complete exemption from withholding of United States federal income taxes or backup withholding taxes with respect to payments under the Series 2022-2 Notes and this Supplement on or before the date that any such form or certification expires or becomes obsolete and after the occurrence of any event requiring a change in the most recent form previously delivered by it to ABRCF; and

(iii)           obtain such extensions of time for filing and completing such forms or certifications as may reasonably be requested by ABRCF and the Administrative Agent;

unless, in any such case, any change in treaty, law or regulation has occurred after the Series 2022-2 Closing Date (or, if later, the date the Administrative Agent, such Non-Conduit Purchaser, such Funding Agent, such Program Support Provider or such member of such CP Conduit Purchaser Group becomes an indemnified party hereunder) and prior to the date on which any such delivery would otherwise be required which renders the relevant form inapplicable or which would prevent the Administrative Agent, such Non-Conduit Purchaser, such Funding Agent, such Program Support Provider or such member of such CP Conduit Purchaser Group from duly completing and delivering the relevant form with respect to it, and the Administrative Agent, such Non-Conduit Purchaser, such Funding Agent, such Program Support Provider or such member of such CP Conduit Purchaser Group so advises ABRCF and the Administrative Agent.

(h)           If a beneficial or equity owner of the Administrative Agent, a Non-Conduit Purchaser, a Funding Agent, a Program Support Provider or a member of a CP Conduit Purchaser Group (instead of the Administrative Agent, the Non-Conduit Purchaser, the Funding Agent, the Program Support Provider or the member of the CP Conduit Purchaser Group itself) is required under United States federal income tax law or the terms of a relevant treaty to provide IRS Form W-8BEN, W-8ECI or W-9, or any successor applicable forms, as the case may be, in order to claim an exemption from withholding of United States federal income taxes or backup withholding taxes, then each such beneficial owner or equity owner shall be considered to be the Administrative Agent, a Non-Conduit Purchaser, a Funding Agent, a Program Support Provider or a member of a CP Conduit Purchaser Group for purposes of Section 7.2(g).

(i)           If a payment made to a recipient would be subject to U.S. Federal withholding tax imposed by FATCA if such recipient were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such recipient shall deliver to the payor at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the payor such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code and any agreements entered into pursuant to Section 1471(b)(1) of the Code) and such additional documentation as reasonable requested by the payor as may be necessary for the payor to determine that such recipient has complied with such recipient’s obligations under FATCA and that such recipient is not subject to any such withholding. Notwithstanding any other provision herein, if ABRCF or the Administrative Agent is required to withhold taxes under FATCA,

 98 

 

ABRCF and the Administrative Agent shall be authorized to deduct from payments to be made to the applicable recipient amounts representing taxes payable by such recipient under FATCA, as determined in the sole discretion of ABRCF or the Administrative Agent, and to remit such amounts to the applicable governmental authorities.

Section 7.3.     Break Funding Payments. ABRCF agrees to indemnify each Purchaser Group and to hold each Purchaser Group harmless from any loss or expense which such Purchaser Group may sustain or incur as a consequence of (a) the failure by ABRCF to accept any Increase after ABRCF has given irrevocable notice requesting the same in accordance with the provisions of this Supplement, (b) the conversion into or continuation of a CP Tranche that occurs other than on the last day of the applicable CP Rate Period, (c) default by ABRCF in making any prepayment in connection with a Decrease after ABRCF has given irrevocable notice thereof in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.5 or (d) the making of a repayment of any portion of the Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to such Purchaser Group (including, without limitation, any Decrease) prior to the termination of a CP Rate Period for a CP Tranche or on a date other than a Distribution Date or the date contained in a notice of Decrease, or the making of a Decrease in a greater amount than contained in any notice of a Decrease. Such indemnification shall include an amount determined by the Non-Conduit Purchaser or the Funding Agent with respect to its Related Purchaser Group and shall equal (a) in the case of the losses or expenses associated with a CP Tranche, either (x) the excess, if any, of (i) such Related Purchaser Group’s cost of funding the amount so paid or not so borrowed, converted or continued, for the period from the date of such payment or of such failure to borrow, convert or continue to the last day of the CP Rate Period or applicable Series 2022-2 Interest Period (or in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, the CP Rate Period that would have commenced on the date of such prepayment or of such failure), as the case may be, over (ii) the amount of interest earned by such Related Purchaser Group upon redeployment of an amount of funds equal to the amount prepaid or not borrowed, converted or continued for a comparable period or (y) if such Related Purchaser Group is able to terminate the funding source before its scheduled maturity, any costs associated with such termination and (b) in the case of the losses or expenses incurred by a Non-Conduit Purchaser, SOFR Funding CP Conduit Purchaser or Pooled Funding CP Conduit Purchaser, the losses and expenses incurred by such Non-Conduit Purchaser, SOFR Funding CP Conduit Purchaser or Pooled Funding CP Conduit Purchaser in connection with the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds acquired by such Non-Conduit Purchaser, SOFR Funding CP Conduit Purchaser or Pooled Funding CP Conduit Purchaser as a result of the failure to accept an Increase, a default in the making of a Decrease or the making of a Decrease in an amount or on a date not contained in a notice of a Decrease. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any payments made by ABRCF pursuant to this subsection shall be made solely from funds available in the Series 2022-2 Distribution Account for the payment of Article VII Costs, shall be non-recourse other than with respect to such funds, and shall not constitute a claim against ABRCF to the extent that such funds are insufficient to make such payment. This covenant shall survive the termination of this Supplement and the Base Indenture and the payment of all amounts payable hereunder and thereunder. A certificate as to any additional amounts payable pursuant to the foregoing sentence submitted by any Non-Conduit Purchaser or Funding Agent on behalf of its Related Purchaser Group to ABRCF shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

 99 

 

Section 7.4.     Alternate Rate of Interest. (a) Subject to clauses (b), (c), (d) and (e) of this Section 7.4, if:

(i)          the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) at any time, that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining Daily Simple SOFR, or

(ii)           the Administrative Agent is advised by any APA Bank at any time that Adjusted Daily Simple SOFR will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such APA Bank of making or maintaining the SOFR Tranches,

then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to ABRCF and the Trustee by telephone, telecopy or electronic mail as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies ABRCF and the Trustee that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist with respect to the relevant Benchmark, the APA Bank Funded Amount with respect to any CP Conduit Purchaser Group (in the case of clause (i) above) or with respect to the related CP Conduit Purchaser Group (in the case of clause (ii) above) shall not be allocated to the SOFR Tranche.

(b)           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Related Document, if a Benchmark Transition Event and its related Benchmark Replacement Date have occurred prior to the Reference Time in respect of any setting of the then-current Benchmark, then, such Benchmark Replacement will replace such Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Related Document in respect of any Benchmark setting at or after 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the fifth (5th) Business Day after the date notice of such Benchmark Replacement is provided to the Series 2022-2 Noteholders without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Supplement so long as the Administrative Agent has not received, by such time, written notice of objection to such Benchmark Replacement from Series 2022-2 Noteholders comprising the Requisite Noteholders. For the avoidance of doubt: (a) in no event shall the Trustee be responsible for determining whether a Benchmark Transition Event has occurred or for determining the replacement for the Benchmark with a Benchmark Replacement and (b) in connection with any of the matters referenced in clause (a) of this sentence, the Trustee shall be entitled to conclusively rely on any determinations made by the Administrative Agent or ABRCF in regards to such matters and shall have no liability for such actions taken at the direction of either the Administrative Agent or ABRCF.

(c)           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Related Document, in connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement, the Administrative Agent will have the right to make Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Related Document, any amendments implementing such Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Supplement.

(d)          The Administrative Agent will promptly notify ABRCF, the Trustee and each Purchaser Group of (i) any occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event (ii) the implementation of any Benchmark Replacement, (iii) the effectiveness of any Benchmark

 100 

 

Replacement Conforming Changes and (iv) the commencement or conclusion of any Benchmark Unavailability Period. Any determination, decision or election that may be made by the Administrative Agent or Purchaser Groups pursuant to this Section 7.4, including any determination with respect to a tenor, rate or adjustment or of the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event, circumstance or date and any decision to take or refrain from taking any action or any selection, will be conclusive and binding absent manifest error and may be made in its or their sole discretion and without consent from any other party to this Supplement or any other Series 2022-2 Document, except, in each case, as expressly required pursuant to this Section 7.4.

(e)          Upon ABRCF’s receipt of notice of the commencement of a Benchmark Unavailability Period, and at all times during the continuation of a Benchmark Unavailability Period, the APA Bank Funded Amount with respect to any CP Conduit Purchaser Group shall not be allocated to the SOFR Tranche.

(f)          The interest rate with respect to (i) the SOFR Tranche, (ii) the CP Conduit Funded Amount with respect to any SOFR Funding CP Conduit Purchaser and (iii) in some cases, the Purchaser Group Invested Amount with respect to any Non-Conduit Purchaser Group 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 7.4(b) provides a mechanism for determining an alternative rate of interest. The Administrative Agent will promptly notify ABRCF, the Trustee and each Purchaser Group pursuant to Section 7.4(d), of any change to the reference rate upon which the interest rate on the portions of the Series 2022-2 Invested Amount listed above is based. However, 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 Supplement, 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 Supplement 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 ABRCF. The Administrative Agent may select information sources or services in its reasonable discretion to ascertain any interest rate used in this Supplement, 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 ABRCF, any Purchaser Group 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.

Section 7.5.     Mitigation Obligations. If an Affected Party requests compensation under Section 7.1, or if ABRCF is required to pay any additional amount to any Purchaser Group or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Purchaser Group pursuant to Section 7.2, then, upon written notice from ABRCF, such Affected Party or

 101 

 

Purchaser Group, as the case may be, shall use commercially reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its obligations hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, which pays a price for such assignment which is acceptable to such Purchaser Group and its assignee, in the judgment of such Affected Party or Purchaser Group, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 7.1 or 7.2, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) would not subject such Affected Party or Purchaser Group to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Affected Party or Purchaser Group. ABRCF hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by such Affected Party or Purchaser Group in connection with any such designation or assignment.

The Administrative Agent shall not be under any obligation to any Non-Conduit Purchaser, any CP Conduit Purchaser, any APA Bank or any Funding Agent to ascertain or to inquire as to the observance or performance of any of the agreements contained in, or conditions of, this Supplement, any other Related Document or to inspect the properties, books or records of ABRCF, the Lessors, the Lessees, the Permitted Sublessees, the Intermediary or the Administrator.

Section 9.4.     Reliance by Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to rely, and shall be fully protected in relying, upon any writing, resolution, notice, consent, certificate, affidavit, letter, telecopy, telex or teletype message, statement, order or other document or conversation believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed, sent or made by the proper Person or Persons and upon advice and statements of legal counsel (including, without limitation, counsel to ABRCF or the Administrator), independent accountants and other experts selected by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent may deem and treat the registered holder of any Series 2022-2 Note as the owner thereof for all purposes unless a written notice of assignment, negotiation or transfer thereof shall have been filed with the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent shall be fully justified in failing or refusing to take any action under this Supplement or any other Related Document unless it shall first receive such advice or concurrence of the Requisite Noteholders, as it deems appropriate or it shall first be indemnified to its satisfaction by the Non-Conduit Purchasers and the Funding Agents against any and all liability and expense which may be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action.

In the event that the Administrative Agent receives such a notice, the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Non-Conduit Purchasers, the Funding Agents, the Trustee, ABRCF and the Administrator. The Administrative Agent shall take such action with respect to such event as shall be reasonably directed by the Requisite Noteholders, provided that unless and until the Administrative Agent shall have received such directions, the Administrative Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such event as it shall deem advisable in the best interests of the Purchaser Groups.

Section 9.6.     Non-Reliance on the Administrative Agent and Other Purchaser Groups. Each of the Non-Conduit Purchasers, the CP Conduit Purchasers, the APA Banks and the Funding Agents expressly acknowledges that neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or Affiliates has made any representations or warranties to it and that no act by the Administrative Agent hereinafter taken, including any review of the affairs of ABRCF, the Lessors, the Lessees, the Permitted Sublessees, the Intermediary or the Administrator shall be deemed to constitute any representation or warranty by the Administrative Agent to any such Person. Each of the Non-Conduit Purchasers, the CP Conduit Purchasers, the APA Banks and the Funding Agents represents to the Administrative Agent that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Non-Conduit Purchaser, CP Conduit Purchaser, APA Bank or Funding Agent and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own appraisal of and investigation into the business, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of ABRCF, the Lessors, the Lessees, the Permitted Sublessees, the Intermediary and the Administrator and made its own decision to enter into this Supplement. Each of the Non-Conduit Purchasers, the CP Conduit Purchasers, the APA Banks and the Funding Agents also represents that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Non-Conduit Purchaser, CP Conduit Purchaser, APA Bank or Funding Agent, and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit analysis, appraisals and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Supplement and the other Related Documents, and to make such investigation as it deems necessary to inform itself as to the business, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of ABRCF, the Lessors, the Lessees, the Permitted Sublessees, the Intermediary and the Administrator. Except for notices, reports and other documents expressly required to be furnished to the Non-Conduit Purchasers and the Funding Agents by the Administrative Agent hereunder, the Administrative Agent shall have no duty or responsibility to provide any Non-Conduit Purchaser, any CP Conduit Purchaser, any APA Bank or any Funding Agent with any credit or other information concerning the business, operations, property, condition (financial or otherwise), prospects or creditworthiness of ABRCF, the Lessors, the Lessees, the Permitted Sublessees, the Intermediary or the Administrator which may come into the possession of the Administrative Agent or any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or Affiliates.

 109 

 

Section 9.7.     Indemnification. Each Non-Conduit Purchaser and each of the APA Banks in a CP Conduit Purchaser Group agrees to indemnify the Administrative Agent in its capacity as such (to the extent not reimbursed by ABRCF and the Administrator and without limiting the obligation of ABRCF and the Administrator to do so), ratably according to their respective Commitment Percentages (or, if indemnification is sought after the date upon which the Commitments shall have terminated, ratably in accordance with their respective Purchaser Group Invested Amounts ) in effect on the date on which indemnification is sought under this Section 9.7 (or if indemnification is sought after the date upon which the Commitments shall have terminated and the Purchaser Group Invested Amounts shall have been reduced to zero ratably in accordance with their Commitment Percentages immediately prior to their termination) from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind whatsoever which may at any time be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent in any way relating to or arising out of this Supplement, any of the other Related Documents or any documents contemplated by or referred to herein or therein or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby or any action taken or omitted by the Administrative Agent under or in connection with any of the foregoing; provided that no Non-Conduit Purchaser, APA Bank or Funding Agent shall be liable for the payment of any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements that are found by a final and nonappealable decision of a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from the Administrative Agent’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. The agreements in this Section shall survive the payment of all amounts payable hereunder.

Section 9.8.     The Administrative Agent in Its Individual Capacity. The Administrative Agent and its Affiliates may make loans to, accept deposits from and generally engage in any kind of business with ABRCF, the Administrator or any of their Affiliates as though the Administrative Agent were not the Administrative Agent hereunder. With respect to any Series 2022-2 Note held by the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent shall have the same rights and powers under this Supplement and the other Related Documents as any APA Bank or Funding Agent and may exercise the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent, and the terms “APA Bank,” and “Funding Agent” shall include the Administrative Agent in its individual capacity.

Section 9.9.     Resignation of Administrative Agent; Successor Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent may resign as Administrative Agent at any time by giving 30 days’ notice to the Non-Conduit Purchasers, the Funding Agents, the Trustee, ABRCF and the Administrator. If JPMorgan Chase shall resign as Administrative Agent under this Supplement, then the Requisite Noteholders shall appoint a successor administrative agent from among the Non-Conduit Purchasers and Funding Agents, which successor administrative agent shall be approved by ABRCF and the Administrator (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) whereupon such successor agent shall succeed to the rights, powers and duties of the Administrative Agent, and the term “Administrative Agent” shall mean such successor agent effective upon such appointment and approval, and the former Administrative Agent’s rights, powers and duties as Administrative Agent shall be terminated, without any other or further act or deed on the part of such former Administrative Agent or any of the parties to this Supplement. If no successor administrative agent has accepted appointment as Administrative Agent prior to the effective date of the resignation of the Administrative Agent,

 110 

 

the retiring Administrative Agent may appoint, after consulting with the Non-Conduit Purchasers, the Funding Agents, the Administrator and ABRCF, a successor Administrative Agent from among the Non-Conduit Purchasers and the Funding Agents. If no successor administrative agent has accepted appointment by the date which is thirty (30) days following a retiring Administrative Agent’s notice of resignation, the retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation shall nevertheless thereupon become effective and the Administrator shall assume and perform all of the duties of the Administrative Agent hereunder until such time, if any, as the Requisite Noteholders appoint a successor administrative agent as provided for above. After any retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation as Administrative Agent, the provisions of this Article IX shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was Administrative Agent under this Supplement.

Section 9.10.     Erroneous Payments. (a) Each Funding Agent and Non-Conduit Purchaser hereby agrees that (x) if the Administrative Agent notifies such Funding Agent or Non-Conduit Purchaser that the Administrative Agent has determined in its sole discretion that any funds received by any member of the related Purchaser Group from the Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates (whether as a payment, prepayment or repayment of principal, interest, fees or otherwise; individually and collectively, a “Payment”) were erroneously transmitted to such member of such Purchaser Group (whether or not known to such member of such Purchaser Group), and demands the return of such Payment (or a portion thereof), such member of such Purchaser Group shall promptly, but in no event later than one Business Day thereafter, return to the Administrative Agent the amount of any such Payment (or portion thereof) as to which such a demand was made in same day funds, together with interest thereon in respect of each day from and including the date such Payment (or portion thereof) was received by such member of such Purchaser Group to the date such amount is repaid to the Administrative Agent at the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation from time to time in effect, and (y) to the extent permitted by applicable law, such member of such Purchaser Group shall not assert, and hereby waives, as to the Administrative Agent, any claim, counterclaim, defense or right of set-off or recoupment with respect to any demand, claim or counterclaim by the Administrative Agent for the return of any Payments received, including without limitation any defense based on “discharge for value” or any similar doctrine. A notice of the Administrative Agent to any Funding Agent or Non-Conduit Purchaser under this Section 9.10(a) shall be conclusive, absent manifest error.

(b)          Each member of a Purchaser Group hereby further agrees that if it receives a Payment from the Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates (x) that is in a different amount than, or on a different date from, that specified in a notice of payment sent by the Administrative Agent (or any of its Affiliates) with respect to such Payment (a “Payment Notice”) or (y) that was not preceded or accompanied by a Payment Notice, it shall be on notice, in each such case, that an error has been made with respect to such Payment. Each member of a Purchaser Group agrees that, in each such case, or if it otherwise becomes aware a Payment (or portion thereof) may have been sent in error, such member of such Purchaser Group shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent of such occurrence and, upon demand from the Administrative Agent, it shall promptly, but in no event later than one Business Day thereafter, return to the Administrative Agent the amount of any such Payment (or portion thereof) as to which such a demand was made in same day funds, together with interest thereon in respect of each day from

 111 

 

and including the date such Payment (or portion thereof) was received by such member of such Purchaser Group to the date such amount is repaid to the Administrative Agent at the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation from time to time in effect.

(c)          ABRCF hereby agrees that (x) in the event an erroneous Payment (or portion thereof) is not recovered from any Purchaser Group that has received such Payment (or portion thereof) for any reason, the Administrative Agent shall be subrogated to all the rights of such Purchaser Group with respect to such amount and (y) an erroneous Payment shall not pay, prepay, repay, discharge or otherwise satisfy any obligations owed by ABRCF.

(d)          Each party’s obligations under Section 9.10 shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Administrative Agent or any transfer of rights or obligations by, or the replacement of, a Purchaser Group or any member thereof, the termination of the Commitments or the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Series 2022-2 Document.

In addition, a (x) multi-seller commercial paper conduit and one or more banks providing support to such multi-seller commercial paper conduit may become a CP Conduit Purchaser Group or (y) a financial institution or other entity may become a Non-Conduit Purchaser pursuant to a purchaser group supplement substantially in the form of Exhibit I-2 (together, with Exhibit I-1 and as applicable, the “Purchaser Group Supplement”).

(f)           Any Non-Conduit Purchaser may, in the ordinary course of its business and in accordance with applicable law, at any time sell to one or more financial institutions or other entities (“Non-Conduit Purchaser Participants”) participations in its Commitment, its Class A Note and its rights hereunder pursuant to documentation in form and substance satisfactory to such Non-Conduit Purchaser and the Non-Conduit Purchaser Participant; provided, however, that (i) in the event of any such sale by a Non-Conduit Purchaser to a Non-Conduit Purchaser Participant, (A) such Non-Conduit Purchaser’s obligations under this Indenture Supplement shall remain unchanged, (B) such Non-Conduit Purchaser shall remain solely responsible for the performance thereof and (C) ABRCF and the Administrative Agent shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Non-Conduit Purchaser in connection with its rights and obligations under this Indenture Supplement and (ii) no Non-Conduit Purchaser shall sell any participating interest under which the Non-Conduit Purchaser Participant shall have rights to approve any amendment to, or any consent or waiver with respect to, this Supplement, the Base Indenture or any Related Document, except to the extent that the approval of such amendment, consent or waiver otherwise would require the unanimous consent of all Series 2022-2 Noteholders hereunder. A Non-Conduit Purchaser Participant shall have the right to receive Article VII Costs but only to the extent that the related selling Non-Conduit Purchaser would have had such right absent the sale of the related participation and, with respect to amounts due pursuant to Section 7.2, only to the extent such Non-Conduit Purchaser Participant shall have complied with the provisions of Sections 7.2(e) and (g) as if such Non-Conduit Purchaser Participant were a Non-Conduit Purchaser.

(g)           ABRCF authorizes each APA Bank and Non-Conduit Purchaser to disclose to any APA Bank Participant, Acquiring APA Bank, Non-Conduit Purchaser Participant or Acquiring Purchaser Group (each, a “Transferee”) and any prospective Transferee any and all financial information in such APA Bank’s or Non-Conduit Purchaser’s possession concerning ABRCF, the Collateral, the Administrator and the Related Documents which has been delivered to such APA Bank by ABRCF or the Administrator in connection with such APA Bank’s credit evaluation of ABRCF, the Collateral and the Administrator.

(h)           Notwithstanding any other provision of this Supplement to the contrary, (i) any Non-Conduit Purchaser, any APA Bank or any Program Support Provider may at any time pledge or grant a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under its Class A Note and this Supplement to secure obligations of such Non-Conduit Purchaser, such APA Bank or such Program Support Provider to a Federal Reserve Bank or other central bank and (ii) any CP Conduit Purchaser may at any time pledge or grant a security interest in all or any portion of its

Each Non-Conduit Purchaser, CP Conduit Purchaser, Committed Note Purchaser and APA Bank hereby represents and warrants to ABRCF that it is an “accredited investor” as such term is defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D under the Securities Act and has sufficient assets to bear the economic risk of, and sufficient knowledge and experience in financial and business matters to evaluate the merits and risks of, its investment in a Series 2022-2 Note. Each Non-Conduit Purchaser, CP Conduit Purchaser, Committed Note Purchaser and APA Bank agrees that its Series 2022-2 Note will be acquired for investment only and not with a view to any public distribution thereof, and that such Non-Conduit Purchaser, CP Conduit Purchaser, Committed Note Purchaser and APA Bank will not offer to sell or otherwise dispose of its Series 2022-2 Note (or any interest therein) in violation of any of the registration requirements of the Securities Act, or any applicable state or other securities laws.

Each Non-Conduit Purchaser, CP Conduit Purchaser, Committed Note Purchaser and APA Bank hereby confirms and agrees that in connection with any transfer by it of an interest in the Series 2022-2 Note, such Non-Conduit Purchaser, CP Conduit Purchaser, Committed Note Purchaser or APA Bank has not engaged and will not engage in a general solicitation or general advertising including advertisements, articles, notices or other communications published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media or broadcast over radio or television, or any seminar or meeting whose attendees have been invited by any general solicitation or general advertising.

Section 11.3.     Adjustments; Set-off. (a)  If any member of a Purchaser Group (a “Benefited Purchaser Group”) shall at any time receive in respect of its Purchaser Group Invested Amount any distribution of principal, interest, Commitment Fees or any interest thereon, or receive any collateral in respect thereof (whether voluntarily or involuntarily, by set-off or otherwise) in a greater proportion than any such distribution received by any other Purchaser Group, if any, in respect of such other Purchaser Group’s Purchaser Group Invested Amount, or interest thereon, such Benefited Purchaser Group shall purchase for cash from the other Purchaser Group such portion of such other Purchaser Group’s interest in the Series 2022-2 Notes, or shall provide such other Purchaser Group with the benefits of any such collateral, or the proceeds thereof, as shall be necessary to cause such Benefited Purchaser Group to share the excess payment or benefits of such collateral or proceeds ratably with the other Purchaser Group; provided, however, that if all or any portion of such excess payment or benefits is thereafter recovered from such Benefited Purchaser Group, such purchase shall be rescinded, and the purchase price and benefits returned, to the extent of such recovery, but without interest. ABRCF agrees that any Purchaser Group so purchasing a portion of another Purchaser Group’s Purchaser Group Invested Amount may exercise all rights of payment (including, without

 118 

 

limitation, rights of set-off) with respect to such portion as fully as if such Purchaser Group were the direct holder of such portion.

(b)           In addition to any rights and remedies of the Purchaser Groups provided by law, each member of a Purchaser Group shall have the right, without prior notice to ABRCF, any such notice being expressly waived by ABRCF to the extent permitted by applicable law, upon any amount becoming due and payable by ABRCF hereunder or under the Series 2022-2 Notes to set-off and appropriate and apply against any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final), in any currency, and any other credits, indebtedness or claims, in any currency, in each case whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, matured or unmatured, at any time held or owing by such Purchaser Group to or for the credit or the account of ABRCF. Each Non-Conduit Purchaser, CP Conduit Purchaser and APA Bank agrees promptly to notify ABRCF, the Administrator and the Administrative Agent after any such set-off and application made by such CP Conduit Purchaser or APA Bank; provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application.

Section 11.4.     No Bankruptcy Petition (a)  Each of the Administrative Agent, the Non-Conduit Purchasers, the CP Conduit Purchasers, the Committed Note Purchasers, the APA Banks and the Funding Agents hereby covenants and agrees that, prior to the date which is one year and one day after the later of payment in full of all Series of Notes, it will not institute against, or join any other Person in instituting against, ABRCF any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceedings, or other similar proceedings under any federal or state bankruptcy or similar law.

(b)           ABRCF, the Trustee, the Administrative Agent, the Administrator, each CP Conduit Purchaser, each Non-Conduit Purchaser, each Committed Note Purchaser, each Funding Agent and each APA Bank hereby covenants and agrees that, prior to the date which is one year and one day after the payment in full of all outstanding Commercial Paper issued by, or for the benefit of, a CP Conduit Purchaser, it will not institute against, or join any other Person in instituting against, such CP Conduit Purchaser (or the Person issuing Commercial Paper for the benefit of such CP Conduit Purchaser) any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceedings, or other similar proceedings under any federal or state bankruptcy or similar law.

(c)           This covenant shall survive the termination of this Supplement and the Base Indenture and the payment of all amounts payable hereunder and thereunder.

Section 11.5.     Limited Recourse (a)  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, any obligations of each CP Conduit Purchaser hereunder to any party hereto are solely the corporate or limited liability company obligations of such CP Conduit Purchaser and shall be payable at such time as funds are received by or are available to such CP Conduit Purchaser in excess of funds necessary to pay in full all of its outstanding Commercial Paper and, to the extent funds are not available to pay such obligations, the claims relating thereto shall not constitute a claim against such CP Conduit Purchaser but shall continue to accrue. Each party hereto agrees that the payment of any claim (as defined in Section 101 of Title 11 of the Bankruptcy Code) of any such party against a CP Conduit Purchaser shall be subordinated to the payment in full of all of its Commercial Paper.
