of Commercial Disputes known to it after reasonable investigation and the applicable Receivable Adjustments, if any. The selling Company shall pay to Purchaser, the amount of any such Receivable Adjustment in Dollars on the next Settlement Date. In
the event that such Company pays to Purchaser the Receivable Adjustment or Purchaser receives payment in full of the remaining unpaid portion of such Purchased Receivable, then any further payments received by Purchaser on such Purchased Receivable
(but not to exceed the amount of Receivable Adjustment actually paid by such Company to Purchaser) shall be remitted to such Company and such Receivable Adjustment shall not be considered as an Adjustment for any further purpose under this
Agreement. Purchaser shall have no duty to investigate the bona fide nature or the validity of any Commercial Dispute.
a Purchased Receivable subject to a Commercial Dispute (other than a Commercial Dispute limited to the type described in clause (iii) of the definition of Commercial Dispute) has been outstanding for more than sixty (60) days
past the applicable Due Date, then Purchaser may require the selling Company to repurchase the Unresolved Dispute Amount. For Commercial Disputes limited to the type described in clause (iii) of the definition of Commercial Dispute,
Purchaser may require the selling Company to repurchase the Unresolved Dispute Amount after it has been outstanding for more than one hundred twenty (120) days past the Due Date. Subject to this Section 5.3, such Company shall repay
to Purchaser the Unresolved Dispute Amount in Dollars on the next Settlement Date and upon such repurchase such Unresolved Dispute Amount shall not be considered as an Adjustment for any further purpose under this Agreement. If the Unresolved
Dispute Amount is paid by such Company, Purchaser receives further payments of the remaining unpaid portion of such Purchased Receivable which, combined with the Unresolved Dispute Amount paid by such Company to Purchaser for such Purchased
Receivable, equal to or exceeds the Invoice Amount (less applicable Adjustments) with respect to such Purchased Receivable, then further payments received by Purchaser on such Purchased Receivable (but not to exceed the Unresolved Dispute Amount
actually paid by such Company to Purchaser) shall be remitted to such
Company or to Tech Data on behalf of such Company. If the entire Purchased Receivable balance is repaid by such Company, it becomes a Repurchase Receivable (as provided below), and Purchaser,
upon payment, shall transfer its undivided interest in the Repurchase Receivable and the rights appurtenant thereto to such Company without any warranties, representations, or recourse whatsoever, other than a representation and warranty that
Purchaser has not transferred its undivided interest in the Repurchase Receivable to any other third party and that such Repurchase Receivable is not subject to any security interest, lien or encumbrance granted or created by Purchaser;
provided, however, that such transfer shall not affect, and any Repurchase Receivable so transferred shall continue to be subject to, the security interest granted pursuant to Section 8.3 of this Agreement. In the event
such Company pays Purchaser, the amount necessary when added to other sums received for such Repurchase Receivable, equal to the Invoice Amount (less applicable Adjustments) of the Repurchase Receivable, then any further payments received by
Purchaser thereafter on such Receivable shall be remitted to such Company or to Tech Data on behalf of such Company. This repayment obligation shall apply only as set forth in this Section 5.3. In the event that such Company repays
Purchaser, the entire balance owing under the Purchased Receivable as provided in this paragraph, or Purchaser receive further payments of the remaining unpaid portion of such Purchased Receivable from the Obligor, then further payments received by
Purchaser on such Receivable shall be remitted to such Company or to Tech Data on behalf of such Company. Purchaser shall cooperate with such Companys efforts to resolve and obtain payment of an Unresolved Dispute Amount.
5.4 The Servicer will direct the collection process to collect or resolve all Unresolved Dispute Amounts in accordance with the Credit and
Collection Policies and Procedures.
5.5 If any Purchased Receivable shall be an amount less than that specified in the
Receivables List (after giving effect to any Adjustments known on the Purchase Date) by reason of a credit issued by the selling Company or a reduction taken by an Obligor in respect of a discount or other claim, then such Company shall pay such
difference to Purchaser, on the next Settlement Date, or Purchaser may, at its option, deduct such payment from any payment due from Purchaser under this Agreement.
5.6 If any warranty made by any Company pursuant to this Agreement (including the warranties set forth in Section 7 below) in respect of any Purchased Receivables proves to have been
inaccurate or false when deemed made hereunder, then without limiting Purchasers rights and remedies under this Agreement, such Purchased Receivables shall be repurchased by the selling Company on the next Settlement Date for the full amount
thereof then owing to Purchaser in respect thereof.
5.7 If any Company owes Purchaser any amount under this Agreement,
Purchaser may, in its sole discretion, deduct, offset or recoup the amount due and payable from any amount due or to become due under this Agreement from Purchaser, including without limitation, the payment of the Purchase Price of any Purchased
Receivables thereafter purchased by Purchaser, in its sole discretion, without any form of prior notice, and such action shall constitute payment of the such Purchase Price for purposes of this Agreement.

Tech Data nor any Company is required to pay a commitment fee or comparable fee to Purchaser, and that Purchaser has no obligation to purchase receivables from Tech Data or any Company, even if the conditions set forth in this Article 6 are
satisfied. If Purchaser shall decline a request from Tech Data or any Company to purchase receivables on the terms set forth in this Agreement, Purchaser may but shall not be obligated to propose alternate terms and conditions
(including pricing terms) under which Purchaser would purchase the proffered receivables. Specifically and without limiting the terms of this Section, payment by Tech Data of the Program Fee and of any other fees referred to in this Agreement shall
not cause or result in an obligation on the part of Purchaser to purchase any receivables subsequently offered by Tech Data or any Company.
Section 7. Warranties. At each time a Receivables List is delivered to Purchaser or on each Purchase Date, and at each time Purchaser pays the Purchase Price for any Receivables, each of Tech Data and the other
Companies warrants, and shall be deemed to warrant, to Purchaser, and upon which Purchaser shall be entitled to rely strictly as a material inducement to purchase the Receivables and to enter into this Agreement, and all of which shall survive the
termination of this Agreement along with the indemnification provisions provided hereunder, as follows:
Authorization. Each Company has all power and authority to execute and deliver this Agreement, to perform fully its obligations hereunder, and to consummate the Transactions. This Agreement constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of
each Company enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject to the Bankruptcy Exception as to enforceability.
Purchased Receivables. The information in the Receivables List and otherwise provided to Purchaser in accordance with the procedures described in Section 3 is true and accurate, and, as supplemented from time to time, identifies
and sets forth accurate and complete financial information with respect to each of the Receivables to be purchased as of the Purchase Date. All names, account numbers, addresses, phone numbers, key contact information and other non-financial
information in the Receivables List or in any written or electronic format previously approved by Purchaser that is delivered to Purchaser on its behalf will be true, complete and correct in all respects as of the applicable Purchase Date as relates
to each such Receivable and the applicable Obligor. The true and correct amount of the principal indebtedness, excluding any late charges or late fees, lawfully owing under each of such Receivables as of the Purchase Date is set forth in the
Receivables List and in such other information and said amount represents the balance that is lawfully owing under such Receivable, net of any credits or returns owing to such Obligor or any late charges or late fees. Each Purchased Receivable has a
positive balance as of the Purchase Date. No Purchased Receivable has been settled or discharged in bankruptcy or otherwise. No Purchased Receivable shall represent or include any interest charges, late fees or late charges.
7.3 Title to the Purchased Receivables. There has been no prior sale, assignment or
transfer of any rights or interest in any of the Receivables to be purchased as of such Purchase Date or other Purchased Assets related thereto. Each Company is the sole owner and has good, valid, complete and freely marketable title in and to the
Receivables and Purchased Assets related thereto (including, but not limited to, the related obligations thereunder) which are purchased from it by Purchaser, and none of such Receivables or Purchased Assets are subject to any Lien, other than the
rights and interests of Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement. The execution and delivery of this Agreement is sufficient to transfer all rights, title and interests in and to such Receivables and other Purchased Assets related thereto (and the
related obligations thereunder), and as of such Purchase Date, the Purchaser will be vested with good, valid and freely assignable and marketable title in and to such Receivables and Purchased Assets related thereto (including the related
obligations), free and clear of any Liens. Each Company has full right and authority to sell and assign each of such Receivables and other Purchased Assets to Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement, without the approval or consent of any Obligor or
7.4 Enforceability. For each Receivable to be purchased as of such Purchase Date, the Obligor on such
Receivable (i) shall have accepted the Goods, or (ii) shall be deemed to have accepted the obligation to pay for the Goods invoiced to such Obligor and shipped to such Obligor or to such Obligors customers pursuant to the terms of
any applicable purchase and distribution agreement. Each such Receivable and the transactions in connection with which it was created comply with all of the terms and conditions of any agreement between the selling Company and such Obligor. Each
such Receivable and related Purchased Assets (and the obligations and balances owing thereunder) are the legal, valid and binding obligations of each Obligor and any surety, guarantor or other third-party credit support provider thereunder, are
absolute and unconditional, arose out of a bona fide credit and business transaction entered into in the ordinary course of the business of such Company, and are duly enforceable by such Company, and as of the Purchase Date will be duly enforceable
by Purchaser, in accordance with the terms of the related documents, and is not subject to any setoffs, adjustments, rescission, claims or counterclaims, except only as enforcement may be limited by a Commercial Dispute or the Bankruptcy Exception.
There are no other agreements or understandings between any Company and any such Obligor or related surety, guarantor or other third-party credit support provider with respect to any of the Receivables to be purchased as of such Purchase Date (and
the related obligations) except as set forth in the Purchased Assets related thereto. None of the obligations under any of such Receivables relates to any credit insurance, insurance or extended warranty programs.
7.5 Receivables. Each Receivable to be purchased by Purchaser as of such Purchase Date constitutes an Eligible Receivable as of such
7.6 Compliance with Law. As relates to the Receivables to be purchased as of the Purchase Date, each
Company has entered into sale transactions, extended and denied credit, created such Receivables and other Purchased Assets related thereto, and managed and used such Receivables and other Purchased Assets, in accordance with all applicable Laws.
Each of the documents relating to such Receivables, in all particulars, and any acts or omissions relating to such Receivables, including, but not limited to, any credit approvals, rejections or counteroffers, disclosures, extensions of credit,
application of payments, assessment and billing of indebtedness, charges or fees, account administration, collections, communications, billings, invoices, statements, notices and all other acts by each Company, with respect to such Receivables, is,
and has been at all times, in compliance with all such applicable laws, rules and regulations.
7.7 Disclosure. Each
Company has disclosed to Purchaser all facts or documents relating to the Receivables to be purchased as of the Purchase Date, and the other Purchased Assets related thereto that are material thereto. No representation or warranty made by any
Company as provided in this Agreement, or any certificates, statements, reports or other documents or information furnished or to be furnished to Purchaser pursuant hereto, contains or will contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omits or
will omit to state any material fact required to be stated to make the statements herein or therein not misleading in the light of the circumstances in which they are made. There are no facts known to any Company that have not been disclosed to
Purchaser that may materially affect the enforceability or collectibility of such Receivables. No due diligence or investigation by or on behalf of Purchaser, or information known or imputed to Purchaser, shall in any way amend, reduce, discharge or
alter any of the warranties, representations or indemnities of any Company in this Agreement or diminish, reduce, release or waive any of the rights, remedies or damages afforded to Purchaser.
7.8 Financial Statements. All financial statements and other factual information
furnished to Purchaser by each Company are true and correct and do not fail to disclose any fact necessary to make such statements or information not misleading in any respect.
7.9 Litigation. As of the Purchase Date for any given Receivable, there is no Action pending or threatened against any Company
relating to such Receivable to be purchased as of the Purchase Date, or the other Purchased Assets related thereto, or any collection, enforcement or use of the foregoing, and each Company does not know, or have reason to be aware, of any basis for
the same. As of any date after the Purchase Date for any given Purchased Receivable, there is no Action pending or threatened against any Company relating to such Purchased Receivable or the other Purchased Assets related thereto or any collection,
enforcement or use of the foregoing (other than Commercial Disputes arising in the ordinary course of business which alone or in the aggregate do not constitute a material portion of the Receivables), and each Company does not know, or have reason
to be aware, of any basis for the same. No judgments, citations, fines or penalties have been entered, asserted or assessed against any Company with respect to such Receivables or other Purchased Assets related thereto. None of the Obligors or
related sureties, guarantors or other third-party credit support providers have filed for protection, or been made the subject of, any voluntary or involuntary petition or filing for protection under the laws of bankruptcy, receivership or
7.10 Absence of Default. No Event of Default has occurred under the Credit Agreement.
7.11 Advice of Counsel and Accountants. Each Company has sought legal, accounting and tax advice, independent of Purchaser, regarding
the nature of the Transactions and has not relied on any statement, writing, behavior, omission, or other action by Purchaser, or legal counsel for Purchaser, in its evaluation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, the tax or accounting
treatment for any of the Transactions.
7.12 SPV Receivables Purchase Agreement. Tech Data has previously designated
each Obligor with respect to the Purchased Receivables as to which such Obligor is liable, pursuant to Section 2.1(a) of the SPV Receivables Purchase Agreement, so as to exclude such Purchased Receivables from the Receivables being
sold and transferred by Tech Data to SPV pursuant to the SPV Receivables Purchase Agreement. Each such designation remains in full force and effect and no notice has been given by Tech Data to make such designation non-effective, except as may
otherwise be expressly agreed in writing after the date hereof by Purchaser.
Section 8. Covenants.
8.1 Liability for Transfer Taxes. Each Company shall be responsible for the timely payment of, and shall indemnify
and hold harmless Purchaser against, all sales, use, value added, documentary, stamp, gross receipts, registration, transfer, conveyance, license and other similar taxes, assessments and fees, arising out of or attributable to the Transactions;
provided, however, that Purchaser shall be responsible for payment of its own state and federal income taxes and franchise taxes that are in the nature of income taxes.
8.2 Deliverables. At or before the date of this Agreement, each Company shall deliver to Purchaser (i) executed acknowledgements
and consents from any Persons purporting to hold any interests in the Receivables of such Company, in form and substance satisfactory to Purchaser, together with terminations, or partial releases and authorizations for the filing of such documents
in respect of any such interests, and (ii) such certificates and opinions of counsel as Purchaser may reasonably require with respect to such Company, the due authorization, execution, delivery, validity and enforceability of this Agreement and
related documents, and the Transactions. Thereafter, each Company shall execute and deliver such additional instruments, documents, conveyances or assurances and take such other actions as shall be necessary, or otherwise requested by Purchaser to
render effective the consummation of the Transactions, and to protect Purchasers interest in all Receivables.
Grant of Precautionary Security Interest; UCC Filing. The parties intend that the Transactions shall constitute a purchase and sale of the Purchased Receivables and other Purchased Assets as provided above for all purposes, and not lending
transactions, and Purchaser is hereby authorized to file such UCC financing statements or comparable statements as it determines to be necessary or appropriate in order to perfect its rights, title and interests therein. Notwithstanding the
foregoing, if for any reason the Transactions are deemed not to constitute
such a purchase and sale transaction, then each Company intends to and does hereby grant to Purchaser a continuing first priority security interest in and to Purchasers interests in the
following: (A) all Purchased Receivables and obligations of any kind arising thereunder from and after the Purchase Date thereof; (B) all other Purchased Assets; (C) all Purchaser Deposit Accounts and all Purchaser Proceeds Investment
Accounts, and all deposits, funds, financial assets, and investment property deposited to, held in or credited thereto; and (D) all proceeds of the foregoing. In addition, each Company hereby grants to Purchaser a continuing first priority
security interest in and to such Companys interest in and to all Receivables on which any Obligor is the account debtor, whether or not such Receivables are Purchased Receivables or Purchased Assets; provided, however, that
Purchaser shall release its interest in any Receivables of an Obligor which becomes a Removed Obligor in accordance with Section 16 hereof and shall file such releases in respect of UCC financing statements as may be necessary to
evidence such release. The obligations secured by such precautionary grant of a security interest and by such other grant of a security interest shall be all of the obligations whatsoever owing or deemed, after such recharacterization, to be owing
by each Company to Purchaser whether now existing or hereafter created or acquired, and arising under or in connection with this Agreement or the transactions described herein or contemplated hereby, but shall not include obligations owed by any
Company to Purchaser under the Credit Agreement and no proceeds of any Receivable shall be applied to repay any obligation of any Company to Purchaser under the Credit Agreement. Each Company agrees to cooperate fully with Purchaser as Purchaser may
reasonably request in order to give effect to and to maintain the first priority status of the security interest granted by this Section 8.3, including, without limitation, obtaining any and all lien terminations and releases and UCC
financing statement terminations and releases (containing terms acceptable to Purchaser) necessary to provide Purchaser with first lien priority with respect to Purchasers interest in and to the subject Receivables from and after the Closing
Date. Each Company hereby authorizes Purchaser to file any UCC financing statements it deems necessary or appropriate in order to perfect the interest of Purchaser in respect of the Purchased Receivables and other Purchased Assets and all proceeds
thereof. Each Company agrees to take or refrain from taking, as the case may be, any and all actions as may be necessary to preserve the continuing interests in favor of Purchaser conveyed and granted hereunder. Each Company agrees to provide
Purchaser with a duly executed Control Agreement with respect to the Purchaser Deposit Account and agrees to direct each Obligor to make all payments on each of the Receivables owed by it either to Purchaser or to the Purchaser Deposit Account for
which a Control Agreement is in effect. Each Company agrees to provide Purchaser with prior written notice of any proposed change in (i) its jurisdiction of incorporation or its chief executive office or principal place of business,
(ii) its corporate name, (iii) any dissolution, merger, consolidation or other corporate reorganization, or (iv) the Purchaser Deposit Account and the Purchaser Proceeds Investment Account; provided, however, that no
such change shall be effected before such Company has supplied Purchaser with all requested diligence items such as searches and signed copies of all releases, authorizations for filings and other documents and actions as Purchaser may reasonably
determine to be necessary or appropriate to preserve and maintain at all times the perfection and priority of the rights, title and interests granted or purported to be granted to Purchaser hereunder. Each Company hereby grants to Purchaser a
limited power of attorney, coupled with an interest, for the purpose of endorsing in the name of such Company any instruments or checks received by Purchaser with respect to Purchased Receivables and made payable to such Company.
8.4 Servicing and Setoff. For every Purchased Receivable, except as otherwise effected in connection with resolution of any
Commercial Dispute pursuant to Section 5.2 and Section 5.3, no Company will, without the prior written consent of Purchaser, (a) permit any setoff, offset, counterclaim or right to a deduction or recoupment to arise at
any time, (b) assign, modify, pledge or deal with such Purchased Receivable except as expressly provided for in this Agreement, nor (c) grant any waiver, release or other indulgence, except as in accordance with the Credit and Collection
Policies and Procedures to be applied by the Servicer (which procedures have been delivered and certified to Purchaser as of the date hereof) and agreed to by the parties. If any Company intends to enter into any contractual arrangement with any
Obligor, other than with respect to the sale of Goods by such Company to such Obligor, or if any Obligor asserts, or has grounds to assert, any claim against any Company for any matter unrelated to the sale of Goods by such Company, such Company
shall immediately notify Purchaser in writing of such matters, giving such detail as Purchaser may request.
Each Company shall properly and accurately reflect the sale of the Purchased Receivables and other Purchased Assets and the sale and transfer of their ownership to Purchaser in such Companys Books and Records.
8.6 Sales Report. Each Company, or Tech Data acting on behalf of such Company, shall
deliver to Purchaser a report (Sales Report), at least one Business Day prior to each Settlement Date (and at such other times as may be requested by Purchaser), describing new credit sales to the Obligors, collections with
respect to Receivables, and Dilution with respect to Receivables (with sufficient detail to permit Purchaser to monitor and assess actual Dilution against historic and projected levels as determined by Purchaser), and such other information as
Purchaser may reasonably request to be included in the Sales Report, all in such form and with such detail as approved by Purchaser.
8.7 Expenses and Fees. Tech Data shall pay all reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses of Purchaser in connection with any amendment or waiver with respect hereto which is requested by Tech Data or by any other Company and shall
pay all costs of collection, including reasonable attorneys fees, in connection with the enforcement by Purchaser of the obligations of any Company hereunder.
8.8 Financial Reporting Requirements. Tech Data shall deliver to Purchaser copies of the financial statements described in, and at the times required under, the provisions of Article VII of the
Credit Agreement, or under any successor provisions of the Credit Agreement (as amended or replaced) with respect of reporting of financial statements and other financial information. If the Credit Agreement is terminated and no replacement Credit
Agreement is entered into, then Tech Data shall thereafter provide such copies of financial statements and other financial information as would have been required under the Credit Agreement as in effect immediately prior to such termination. All
such financial statements shall be certified as to accuracy and completeness and conformity to generally accepted accounting principles by Tech Datas chief executive officer, chief financial officer, controller or treasurer.
8.9 Other Reporting Requirements. Tech Data shall notify Purchaser immediately upon the occurrence of any of the following:
||The revocation, cancellation or other termination or expiration, or purported revocation, cancellation or other termination or expiration, of any Guaranty required by
the Purchaser to be in effect with respect to any Eligible Receivables; |
||With respect to any Guaranty required by the Purchaser to be in effect with respect to any Eligible Receivables, the occurrence of any modification, expiration,
termination, or replacement of any contract, agreement or other arrangement, or any other action or event, that has the effect of making such Guaranty inapplicable or ineffective with respect to such Receivables; and |
||The occurrence of any Default or Event of Default as defined in the Credit Agreement. |
8.10 SPV Receivables Purchase Agreement. Tech Data shall not give any notice or take any other action to render non-effective any
designation, pursuant to Section 2.1(a) of the SPV Receivables Purchase Agreement, previously made by it to have the Purchased Receivables of any Obligor excluded from the Receivables being sold and transferred by Tech Data to SPV
pursuant to the SPV Receivables Purchase Agreement, except as may otherwise be expressly agreed in writing after the date hereof by Purchaser.
Section 9. Indemnification.
Each Company agrees to indemnify and hold harmless
Purchaser Indemnitee from any losses, damages, claims or complaints incurred by Purchaser Indemnitees (including reasonable attorneys fees and expenses of Purchaser Indemnitees) to the extent of and arising out of third party claims or actions
due to: (i) any Companys breach of any representations or warranties in this Agreement or its failure to comply with this Agreement; (ii) any wrongful acts or omissions by any Company or such Companys affiliates with respect to
the Purchased Receivables or other Purchased Assets; (iii) any Companys negligence, unlawful conduct, or willful misconduct with respect to the Purchased Receivables or other Purchased Assets; (iv) the death or injury to any Person
or the loss, destruction or damage to any property arising out of the design, manufacture, distribution or furnishing by any Company of any
goods or services, or related warranties or services, that were the subject of the Purchased Receivables; (v) with respect to any Purchased Receivables or other Purchased Assets, any claim
or complaint of a third party that any Company has breached any contract with such party or violated any laws or equitable principles, or otherwise with respect to Purchasers execution, delivery or performance of this Agreement.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, no such indemnification shall apply with respect to Purchaser Indemnitee to the extent that any such losses, damages, claims or complaints are the result of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Purchaser
Indemnitee. Each Company agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses of Purchaser (including reasonable attorneys fees and expenses) incurred in connection with the enforcement of this Agreement against any Company (including in any
bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings) and any applicable sales taxes, intangibles taxes, documentary stamp taxes and recording costs in respect of the Transactions.
Section 10. [Reserved]
Section 11. Servicing
and Management of Purchased Receivables.
11.1 Subject to Section 11.3 below, Tech Data (when acting in
such capacity, herein referred to as Servicer) shall act as Servicer hereunder and shall service the Purchased Receivables purchased by Purchaser hereunder. The servicing of such Purchased Receivables shall include,
but not be limited to: (1) managing the collection of the Purchased Receivables and undertaking all action or all legal or other proceedings to enforce payment, (2) taking all actions necessary to request or demand that the Obligors pay
Purchased Receivables if such Purchased Receivables are due and payable; and (3) administering, servicing and managing the collection and servicing of the Purchased Receivables (including the identification and application of payments received
or collected by Servicer in respect of particular Receivables) in the ordinary course of business with at least the same standard of care and procedures as Tech Data uses in the servicing and management of Receivables owned by Tech Data.
||The Servicer shall implement and comply in all respects with the Credit and Collection Policies and Procedures and shall perform all obligations described herein,
including without limitation, those obligations described in Section 4.3 and Section 5.2 hereof. |
||The Servicer shall administer, service and manage the collection and servicing of the Purchased Receivables in the ordinary course of its business in compliance with
all applicable laws, rules and regulations. |
||The Servicer shall arrange to have all payments from each Obligor sent by separate ACH entry directly to the Purchaser Deposit Account and shall not permit any payments

||Tech Data shall be responsible for all of the fees, costs and expenses incurred in connection with the management and collection of the Purchased Receivables,
including, without limitation, the costs for litigation to resolve Commercial Disputes, but shall not be responsible for such fees, costs, or expenses where non-payment of Purchased Receivables is due solely to Financial Inability to Pay. Tech Data
shall obtain or cause to be obtained all licenses, permits and regulatory approvals necessary to collect the Purchased Receivables and otherwise comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations. |
||The Servicer agrees that, except as historically applied in the normal, customary and ordinary course of its business with respect to the collection of its own

pursuant to this Agreement without the prior written consent of Purchaser. |
||Upon request by Purchaser, Servicer shall provide information identifying the particular Purchased Receivables to which amounts collected in respect of the Purchased
Receivables and other Purchased Assets are attributable. |
11.2 In partial consideration for its performance of
its duties as Servicer, Purchaser shall assign to Tech Data, and Tech Data shall be entitled to receive and retain, all amounts from time to time paid by the bank where the Purchaser Deposit Account is maintained as interest or other investment
return on the funds from time to time held in the Purchaser Deposit Account. Tech Data agrees that it will report all such amounts as its income and be responsible for paying all income and other taxes in respect thereof. Amounts shall be payable
monthly to Tech Data upon receipt and review by Purchaser and Tech Data of the applicable periodic statements for the Purchaser Deposit Account following the actual crediting of such amounts to the Purchaser Deposit Account.
11.3 Purchaser may, but shall not be obligated to, remove Tech Data as Servicer and/or direct the Obligors to make payments with respect to
Receivables directly to the Purchaser Deposit Account (or as otherwise directed by Purchaser) if (i) the Purchaser has given Tech Data at least 30 days prior written notice that Purchaser has made a good faith determination that Tech Data is
unable to perform its duties as Servicer or is not adequately performing such duties, (ii) amounts payable by the Obligors with respect to any Purchased Receivables have not been received by Purchaser within seventy (70) days after the
Purchase Date for such Purchased Receivables (other than amounts in respect of a Receivable which is repurchased by any Company pursuant to Section 5.3 or 5.6), or (iii) Purchaser shall determine in its reasonable discretion that
Purchasers funds are not adequately protected or secure in the possession of Tech Data. Purchaser shall contemporaneously provide to Tech Data a copy of any such direction given to any Obligor. Prior to such direction, the Obligors may
continue to make all payments with respect to Purchased Receivables to Tech Data.
Section 12. Final Payment;
Release. Upon written request from any Company and final payment of all amounts due to Purchaser from all Obligors and each Company, Purchaser will (i) release its UCC financing statements with respect to its ownership interest and
precautionary security interest in the Purchased Receivables and with respect to its security interest in any other Receivables, (ii) terminate any Control Agreement to which it is a party with respect to the Purchaser Deposit Account or the
Purchaser Proceeds Investment Account into which proceeds of Receivables have been deposited or are held, and (iii) return to Tech Data, for the account of Tech Data and each other Company, or will deliver to any other Person entitled thereto,
any proceeds of any Receivables, other than Purchased Receivables, in its possession.
Section 13. Confidentiality.
In performing its obligations pursuant to this Agreement, each party may receive from the other or have access to certain Confidential Information. All parties agree that they will reveal such Confidential Information only to those of their
directors, officers, or employees (and the directors, officers or employees of any of their Affiliates) with a need to know or who are engaged in the development or maintenance of the program under this Agreement. Each party agrees not to disclose
Confidential Information to any third party, except as may be necessary for that party to perform its obligations pursuant to this Agreement, including but not limited to disclosure of Confidential Information to such partys legal counsel,
accountants, and financial advisors and except to any credit rating agency on a confidential basis or as may be agreed to by the parties or as required by law or compelled by judicial process. If any party should disclose Confidential Information to
a third party, such disclosing party shall cause said third party to agree to the confidentiality provisions set forth in this Section 13, unless, after the giving of reasonable prior written notice, as otherwise required or compelled by
law, court order or judicial process. This Section 13 shall survive the termination of this Agreement for a period of three (3) years.
Section 14. Company Guaranty. In consideration of the benefit, directly and indirectly, to each Company hereunder, each Company hereby guaranties to Purchaser the full and timely
payment of, and shall be jointly and severally liable for, the obligations of each other Company hereunder, whether or not it, or one of the other Companies, is the originator of a given Receivable with respect to which such obligations have arisen,
and shall include without limitation, interest accruing or that would have accrued thereon after the filing of a petition in bankruptcy or other insolvency proceeding. The obligations of each Company under its respective Company
Guaranty in this Section 14 shall be unconditional and absolute, enforceable against each such Company to the full extent of its properties and assets, irrespective of the validity,
regularity or enforceability of this Agreement, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, shall not be released, discharged or otherwise affected by, and each Company hereby consents to, the taking, or failure to take, of each of the
following actions by Purchaser; and waives notice of any thereof: (i) acceptance of its guaranty obligations with respect to obligations of the other Companies hereunder, (ii) any purchase of any Receivables under this Agreement,
(iii) demand for payment, waiver of any default or any other term or condition of this Company Guaranty or this Agreement, any extension, acceptance of payment or partial payment, renewal, settlement, or compromise, (iv) any amendment,
modification or supplement to this Agreement or any document or agreement related to this Agreement, the Purchased Receivables, the Transactions, or any document or agreement relating thereto; (v) release of any Company or any Guarantor,
release of any security, nonperfection or invalidity of any direct or indirect security for any obligation guarantied hereunder, (vi) the invalidity or unenforceability relating to any obligation of any other Company guarantied hereunder, and
(vii) any other waiver, consent or other action or inaction or circumstance which might, but for the provisions of this Section, constitute a legal or equitable discharge of any Companys obligations hereunder. If at any time any payment
on the obligations guarantied hereby is rescinded or must be otherwise restored or returned upon the insolvency or bankruptcy of a Company, each other Companys obligations hereunder with respect to such payment shall be reinstated as though
such payment had been due but not made at such time. Each Company represents that it is familiar with the financial condition of each of the other Companies and covenants that it will keep itself so informed. Each Company hereby agrees that it will
not enforce any right of contribution or subrogation against any other Company until all obligations of all of the Companies hereunder are fully satisfied and paid in full. Each Company hereby consents to the addition of any other Company pursuant
to the terms of Section 15 hereof from time to time and consents to the removal of any Obligors pursuant to the terms of Section 16 hereof from time to time. Notwithstanding any provision of this Company Guaranty to the
contrary, it is intended that this Company Guaranty not constitute a fraudulent conveyance under any applicable insolvency laws and it shall be valid and enforceable only to the maximum extent that would not cause this Company Guaranty,
or any Lien securing this Company Guaranty, to constitute a fraudulent conveyance and this Company Guaranty shall automatically be deemed to have been amended with respect to each affected Company accordingly at all relevant times.
Section 15. Additional Companies. From time to time Tech Data may request that an additional subsidiary be
permitted to become a Company hereunder and such subsidiary shall become a Company hereunder upon satisfaction of each of the following conditions: (i) such subsidiary shall (a) be a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tech Data and shall be
engaged only in the business in which Tech Data is engaged as of the date hereof, (b) be organized under the laws of a state of the United States of America, (c) be in good standing in the state of its formation and in each other
jurisdiction in which it is required to be qualified to do business, (d) be the owner of each of its Receivables, free and clear of all liens and encumbrances of any nature whatsoever, (e) be solvent, (f) not be subject to any
material Actions, (g) be in compliance with all laws, (h) have the power and authority to enter into this Agreement and perform its obligations hereunder without restriction and without any conflict with any agreement or law applicable to
it, (i) be in compliance with each of its material agreements both before and after becoming a Company hereunder, and (j) provide Purchaser with its most recent financial statements and have had no material adverse change in its financial
condition, operations, business, prospects or properties since the date of such statements; (ii) such subsidiary shall certify each of the foregoing items (a) through (j) to Purchaser and shall provide such information and copies of
documents as Purchaser shall require in connection with each of the foregoing; (iii) such subsidiary shall duly authorize, execute and deliver a Supplement and shall duly authorize, execute and deliver such other documents, agreements,
certificates and opinions as to organizational matters, authority, enforceability, and true sale as Purchaser shall require; and (iv) each of the other conditions set forth in Section 6.1 shall have been met to the satisfaction of
Purchaser. Upon execution and delivery of such items, including such Supplement, such subsidiary shall become a Company hereunder with the same force and effect as if originally named as a Company herein. The execution and delivery of any Supplement
adding an additional Company as a party to this Agreement and the acceptance thereof by Purchaser shall not require the consent of any other Company hereunder whether or not such additional Company meets each of the foregoing requirements. The
rights and obligations of each Company hereunder shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding the addition of any new Company as a party to this Agreement, and each Company, together with each such additional Company shall be and remain
jointly and severally liable hereunder for the obligations of all Companies.
Section 16. Removed Obligors. Any Obligor hereunder may be removed as an Obligor
hereunder with respect to a given Company by letter agreement in the form of Exhibit B (Removal Letter) and, upon the satisfaction of each of the following conditions, shall become a Removed Obligor
hereunder: (i) Purchaser shall have received a duly authorized and executed Removal Letter from each Company requesting that such Obligor be removed as an Obligor hereunder with respect to such Company, (ii) all Purchased Receivables on
which such Obligor is the account debtor and which were purchased from such Company shall have been repaid in full, and (iii) no Default or Event of Default under, and as defined in, the Credit Agreement shall have occurred and be continuing.
Purchaser agrees to (i) release any ongoing interest hereunder in other Receivables owing by a Removed Obligor, and (ii) release or reassign to the respective Company any Guaranty (or the applicable rights and interests thereunder) in
respect of the Receivables of such Removed Obligor.
Section 17. Taxes and Other Claims.
17.1 Payments Free of Taxes and Other Claims. Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of any Company hereunder shall
be made without condition or deduction for any counterclaim, defense, recoupment or setoff, and without limiting the foregoing, shall be made free and clear of and without reduction or withholding for any Indemnified Taxes (including any Other
Taxes), provided that if any Company should be required by applicable law to deduct any Indemnified Taxes (including any Other Taxes) from such payments, then (i) the sum payable hereunder shall be increased as necessary so that after
making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) Purchaser receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the applicable Company
shall make such deductions, and (iii) the applicable Company shall timely pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
17.2 Payment of Other Taxes by the Companies. Without limiting the provisions of Section 17.1 above, each Company shall
timely pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
by Tech Data. Tech Data shall indemnify the Purchaser within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable
to amounts payable under this Section) paid by the Purchaser and any penalties, interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes are correctly or legally imposed or
asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to Tech Data by Purchaser, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
17.4 Evidence of Payment. As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes by any Company to a
Governmental Authority, Tech Data shall deliver to the Purchaser 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 reasonable satisfactory to Purchaser.
17.5 Status of Purchasers. If the Purchaser is entitled to an exemption
from or reduction of withholding tax under the law of the jurisdiction in which any Company is resident for tax purposes, or any treaty to which such jurisdiction is a party, with respect to payments hereunder, it shall deliver to Tech Data, at the
time or times prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by Tech Data, such properly completed and executed documentation prescribed by applicable law as will permit such payment to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of
withholding. In addition, the Purchaser, if requested by Tech Data, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by Tech Data as will enable Tech Data to determine whether or not the Purchaser is
subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements.
17.6 Treatment of Certain Refunds. If Purchaser
determines that it has received a refund of any Taxes or Other Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by Tech Data or with respect to which Tech Data has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section, it shall pay to Tech Data an amount equal
to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by Tech Data under this Section with respect to the Taxes or Other Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses of Purchaser, and
interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund), provided that Tech Data, upon the request of Purchaser, agrees to repay the
amount paid over to Tech Data (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to Purchaser in the event Purchaser is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. This subsection shall
not be construed to require Purchaser to make available its tax returns (or any other information relating to its taxes that it deems confidential) to Tech Data or any other Person.
Without limiting the obligations of the Purchaser set forth above regarding delivery of certain forms and documents to establish
Purchasers status for United States withholding tax purposes, Purchaser agrees promptly to deliver to Tech Data, as Tech Data shall reasonably request, on or prior to the date hereof and in a timely fashion thereafter, such other documents and
forms required by any relevant taxing authorities under the laws of any other jurisdiction, duly completed and executed by Purchaser as are required under such laws to confirm Purchasers entitlement to any available exemption from, or
reduction of applicable withholding taxes in respect of all payments to be made to Purchaser outside of the United States by any Company pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise to establish Purchasers status for withholding tax purposes in
such jurisdiction. Purchaser shall promptly take such steps as shall not be materially disadvantageous to it, in its reasonable judgment, and as may be reasonably necessary to avoid any requirement of applicable laws of any such jurisdiction that
any Company make any deduction or withholding for taxes from amounts payable to Purchaser. Additionally, each Company shall promptly deliver to Purchaser, as Purchaser shall reasonably request, on or prior to the date hereof, and in a timely fashion
thereafter, such documents and forms required by any relevant taxing authorities under the laws of any jurisdiction, duly completed and executed by the applicable Company as are required to be furnished by Purchaser under such laws in connection
with any payment by Purchaser of Taxes or Other Taxes, or otherwise in connection with this Agreement, with respect to such jurisdiction.
Section 18. Miscellaneous.
18.1 Each Company will execute whenever requested by
Purchaser all documents and take such actions as Purchaser may reasonably require to vest full legal title to the undivided interest in the Purchased Receivables and other Purchased Assets in Purchaser, including, without limitation, the filing of
any UCC financing statements and a written assignment of any Guaranty. On and after each Purchase Date, each Company shall take such other actions as shall be necessary, or reasonably requested by Purchaser, to confirm and assure the rights and
obligations provided for in this Agreement and render effective the consummation of the Transactions.
18.2 Except with
respect to the payment of the Purchase Price as provided in Section 3.2, the sole liability of Purchaser for a non-monetary default hereunder shall be limited to correction (to the extent reasonably correctable) of such actions, errors
or omissions within the applicable cure period as provided in this Agreement. No party shall have any liability to any other party hereunder for indirect, punitive, consequential or incidental damages of any kind or nature, including, without
limitation, loss of profits or damage to or loss of use of any property, any interruption or loss of service or any loss of business, howsoever caused.
18.3 This Agreement, together with exhibits, schedules and documents incorporated by reference in this Agreement, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties in connection with the purchase and
sale of the Purchased Receivables, and supersedes all prior agreements, negotiations and communications on such subject matter, whether written or oral.

Sections 9, 13, and 14 hereof.

transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of Purchaser. Purchaser may not assign or
otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement, except with the prior written consent of Tech Data (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, but no
such consent from Tech Data shall be required in connection with any such assignment or transfer made by Purchaser to its subsidiary or other Affiliate), and any such assignment or transfer by Purchaser shall be made with respect to all of
Purchasers rights and obligations under this Agreement and not in part. Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, shall be construed to confer upon any Person (other than the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns
permitted hereby) any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or by reason of this Agreement.
18.6 If any provision
or portion of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable by reason of any rule or law, administrative order, judicial decision, public policy, or otherwise, all other provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain
valid and in full force and in effect, and this Agreement shall be construed as if such invalid provision was never part of this Agreement.
18.7 The Agreement and all rights and obligations hereunder, including, without limitation, matters of construction, validity and performance, shall be governed by and construed and interpreted in
accordance with applicable federal law and the internal laws of the State of New York without regard to its principles of conflict of laws. It is expressly understood that changes in the performance of any partys obligations under this

the state and federal courts located in New York, New York in respect of the interpretation and enforcement of the provisions of this Agreement.
18.8 TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, PURCHASER AND EACH COMPANY HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY ON ANY CLAIM, DEMAND, ACTION, CAUSE OF ACTION OR COUNTERCLAIM ARISING UNDER OR IN ANY

not be a waiver of, nor preclude the exercise of, any rights or remedies available to such party under this Agreement, in law or equity, or otherwise. Any waiver by any party of any breach or default of any provision of this Agreement shall not be
construed as a waiver of any continuing or succeeding breach or default of any such provision, or a waiver of any right or rights under this Agreement.

in principal or other original investment amounts. Amounts shall be payable to the Servicer from time to time upon receipt and review by Purchaser and the Servicer of the applicable periodic statements for the Purchaser Proceeds Investment Account
