(c)           Each Qualified Maturity Agreement shall terminate at the close of business on the Expected Principal Payment Date; provided, however, that the Issuer shall terminate a Qualified Maturity Agreement prior to such Distribution Date, with notice to each Rating Agency, if (i) the Available Reserve Account Amount equals the Required Reserve Account Amount and (ii) one of the following events occurs: (A) the Issuer obtains a substitute Qualified Maturity Agreement, (B) the provider of the Qualified Maturity Agreement ceases to qualify as an Eligible Institution and the Issuer is unable to obtain a substitute Qualified Maturity Agreement or (C) an Early Amortization Event occurs.  In the event that the provider of a Qualified Maturity Agreement ceases to qualify as an Eligible Institution, the Issuer shall use its best efforts to obtain a substitute Qualified Maturity Agreement.
 
(d)           If a Qualified Maturity Agreement is terminated prior to the earlier of the Expected Principal Payment Date and the commencement of the Early Amortization Period and the Issuer does not obtain a substitute Qualified Maturity Agreement, the Controlled Accumulation Period shall commence on the latest of (i) the beginning of business on March 1, 2018, (ii) the date to which the commencement of the Controlled Accumulation Period is postponed pursuant to Section 4.l3 (as determined on the date of such termination) and (iii) the first day of the Monthly Period following the date of such termination.
