(a) Each Loan shall be (i) with respect to the Class A Loans, made as part of a borrowing of Class A Loans made by the Lenders ratably in accordance with their respective Class A Commitments and (ii) with respect to the Class B Loans, made as part of a borrowing of Class B Loans made by the Lenders ratably in accordance with their respective Class B Commitments; provided, however, that the failure of any Lender to make any Loan shall not in itself relieve any other Lender of its obligation to lend hereunder (it being understood, however, that no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make any Loan required to be made by such other Lender).  The Loans shall be in an aggregate principal amount that is (i) an integral multiple of $1,000 and not less than $250,000 (or such other minimum amount as the Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall agree from time to time) or (ii) equal to the remaining available balance of the aggregate Commitments.
 
(b) Each Lender may at its option make any Loan by causing any domestic or foreign branch or Affiliate of such Lender to make such Loan; provided, however, that any exercise of such option shall not affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay such Loan in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
 
(c) Each Lender shall make each Loan to be made by it hereunder on the proposed date thereof by wire transfer of immediately available funds to such account in New York City as the Administrative Agent may designate not later than 10:00 a.m., New York City time, and the Administrative Agent shall (i) remit the amounts so received (net of amounts required to be deposited in the Reserve Account pursuant to Section 2.03(d)) by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account in the name of the Borrower, maintained in the United States and designated by the Borrower in the applicable Borrowing Request or (ii) if Loans will not be made on such date because any condition precedent herein specified shall not have been met, return the amounts so received to the respective Lenders.
 
(d) Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the date any Loans are to made hereunder that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s Loan, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made its Loan available to the Administrative Agent on the date of such Loans in accordance with paragraph (c) above, and the Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrower on such date a corresponding amount.  If the Administrative Agent shall have so made funds available then, to the extent that such Lender shall not have made its Loan available to the Administrative Agent, such Lender and the Borrower severally agree to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is made available to the Borrower until the date such amount is repaid to the Administrative Agent at (i) in the case of the Borrower, the interest rate applicable at the time to the Loans in question and (ii) in the case of such Lender, a rate determined by the Administrative Agent to represent its cost of overnight or short term funds (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error).  If such Lender shall repay to the Administrative Agent such corresponding amount, such amount shall constitute such Lender’s Loan for purposes of this Agreement.
 
SECTION 2.03 Borrowing Procedure.
 
(a) In order to request a Loan, the Borrower shall deliver by hand or by facsimile or other electronic means to the Administrative Agent a duly completed Borrowing Request, together with the related Addition Notice, Borrowing Base Certificate and data tape or other electronic file containing information regarding the Related Receivables to be transferred on such Funding Date not later than 1:00 p.m., New York City time, one Business Day before the proposed Funding Date.  Such Borrowing Base Certificate shall provide the current calculation of the Class A Borrowing Base and Class B Borrowing Base (i) if such Funding Date is a Settlement Date, as of the end of business on the related Determination Date, or (ii) if such Funding Date is not a Settlement Date, as of the end of business on the Determination Date for the most recent Settlement Date (or as of the end of business on such date as agreed by the Administrative Agent).  The Borrower shall submit no more than five (5) Borrowing Requests (and accompanying Addition Notices and Borrowing Base Certificates) per week, unless otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent.  Each Borrowing Request shall be irrevocable, shall be signed by or on behalf of the Borrower and shall specify the following information:  (i) the Funding Date of such Loans (which shall be a Business Day); (ii) the number and location of the account to which funds are to be disbursed (which shall be an account that complies with the requirements of Section 2.02(c)); and (iii)  the aggregate amount to be borrowed and the allocation of Class A Loans and Class B Loans requested; provided, however, that, notwithstanding any contrary specification in any Borrowing Request, (x) the Borrower shall not submit any Class A Borrowing Request unless accompanied by a Class B Borrowing Request such that the aggregate amount of borrowing requested is proportionally split based on the Unrated Class A Advance Rate and the Unrated Class B Advance Rate and (y) each requested borrowing of Loans shall comply with the requirements set forth in Section 2.02.  The Administrative Agent shall promptly advise the Lenders of any notice given pursuant to this Section 2.03 (and the contents thereof), and of each Lender’s portion of the requested Loans.

(c) Upon any Ratings Requirement Bring-Down with respect to which the Rated Class A Advance Rate and/or the Rated Class B Advance Rate are reduced, the Administrative Agent may elect to cause a Class A Borrowing Request and/or Class B Borrowing Request, as applicable, to be deemed to have been submitted by the Borrower, in order to cure any Borrowing Base Deficiency (e.g., decreasing the Class A Invested Amount and increasing the Class B Invested Amount).
 
(d) With respect to each Borrowing Request, the Borrower shall direct the Administrative Agent to deposit in (or to direct the Account Bank to credit to) the Reserve Account such amount as required to ensure that the that amounts on deposit in the Reserve Account equal the Required Reserve Account Amount.

(d) In the absence of manifest error, the entries made in the accounts maintained pursuant to paragraphs (b) and (c) above shall be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations therein recorded; provided, however, that the failure of any Lender or the Administrative Agent to maintain such accounts or any error therein shall not in any manner affect the obligations of the Borrower to repay the Loans in accordance with the terms hereof.
 
(e) Any Lender may request that Loans made by it hereunder be evidenced by a promissory note.  In such event, the Borrower shall execute and deliver to such Lender a promissory note payable to such Lender and its registered assigns and in a form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and the Borrower.

SECTION 3.05 Taxes.

(i) pay directly to the relevant authority the full amount required to be so withheld or deducted;
 
(ii) promptly forward to the affected Lender or its agent an official receipt or other documentation evidencing such payment to such authority; and
 
(iii) pay to the affected Lender or its agent such additional amount or amounts as is necessary to ensure that the net amount actually received by the affected Lender will equal the full amount the affected Lender would have received had no such withholding or deduction been required.
 
Moreover, if any Taxes are directly asserted against a Lender with respect to any payment received by such Lender or its agent, such Lender or such agent may pay such Taxes and the Borrower, the Purchaser, the Seller or the Servicer will promptly upon receipt of prior written notice stating the amount of such Taxes pay such additional amounts (including any penalties, interest or expenses) as is necessary in order that the net amount received by such person after the payment of such Taxes (including any Taxes on such additional amount) shall equal the amount such Lender would have received had not such Taxes been asserted.  The Lenders shall make all reasonable efforts to avoid the imposition of any Taxes that would give rise to an additional payment under this Section 3.05(a).
 
If the Borrower, the Purchaser, the Seller or the Servicer fails to pay any Taxes when due to the appropriate taxing authority or fails to remit to a Lender or its agent the required receipts or other required documentary evidence, the Borrower, the Purchaser, the Seller or the Servicer, as applicable, shall indemnify such Lender, its Affiliates and its agent, if any, for any Taxes and incremental Taxes, interest or penalties that may become payable by such Lender or its agent as a result of any such failure.  For purposes of this Section 3.05(a), a distribution hereunder by the agent for a Lender shall be deemed a payment by such Lender.
 
(b) Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of United States withholding Tax, with respect to payments hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall deliver to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), prior to the Closing Date (or upon becoming a Lender) and at any time or times prescribed by Requirements of Law or reasonably requested by Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation prescribed by Requirements of Law as will permit such payments to be made without United States withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding.  In addition, any Lender, if requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by Requirements of Law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to United States backup withholding or information reporting requirements.
 
(c) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if a Lender is entitled to claim an exemption or reduction from United States withholding tax, such Lender agrees with and in favor of the Administrative Agent, to deliver to Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) one of the following before receiving its first payment under this Agreement:
 
(i) if such Lender is entitled to claim an exemption from, or a reduction of, withholding tax under a United States tax treaty, a properly completed and executed copy of IRS Form W 8BEN;
 
(ii) if such Lender is entitled to claim that interest paid under this Agreement is exempt from United States withholding tax because it is effectively connected with a United States trade or business of such Lender, a properly completed and executed copy of IRS Form W 8ECI;
 
(iii) if such Lender is entitled to claim that interest paid under this Agreement is exempt from United States withholding tax because such Lender serves as an intermediary, a properly completed and executed copy of IRS Form W 8IMY (with proper attachments); or
 
(iv) a properly completed and executed copy of any other form or forms, including IRS Form W 9, as may be required under the Code or other laws of the United States as a condition to exemption from, or reduction of, United States withholding or backup withholding tax.
 
(d) Each Lender shall provide new forms (or successor forms) upon the expiration or obsolescence of any previously delivered forms and promptly notify Borrower and the Administrative Agent of any change in circumstances which would modify or render invalid any claimed exemption or reduction.
 
SECTION 3.06 Illegality; Substituted Interest Rates.  Notwithstanding any other provisions herein, (a) if any Requirement of Law or any change therein or in the interpretation or application thereof shall make it unlawful for a Lender to make or maintain any Loan at the LIBOR rate as contemplated by this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, or (b) in the event that a Lender shall have determined (which determination shall be conclusive and binding upon the Borrower) that by reason of circumstances affecting the LIBOR interbank market neither adequate nor reasonable means exist for ascertaining the LIBOR rate, or (c) a Lender shall have determined (which determination shall be conclusive and binding on the Borrower) that the applicable LIBOR rate will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lender of maintaining or funding the Class A Loans or the Class B Loans, as applicable, based on such applicable LIBOR rate (provided that the parties hereto acknowledge and agree that such Lender shall only make such determination (i) upon giving Standard & Poor’s not less than ten (10) days’ prior written notice thereof and (ii) if the published LIBOR rate used by such Lender does not accurately reflect the actual LIBOR rate), (x) the obligation of such Lender to make or maintain the Class A Loans or the Class B Loans, as applicable, at the LIBOR rate shall forthwith be suspended and such Lender shall promptly notify the Borrower thereof (by telephone confirmed in writing) and (y) each affected Loan then outstanding, if any, shall, from and including the date that is forty-five (45) days after the Borrower’s receipt of notice from such Lender of the occurrence of any condition set forth in clauses (a), (b) or (c), or at such earlier date as may be required by law, until payment in full thereof, bear interest at the rate per annum equal to the greater of (i) the sum of (x) the Prime Rate and (y) the Class A Applicable Margin or the Class B Applicable Margin, as applicable, minus 3.00% and (ii) the rate of interest (including the Class A Applicable Margin or Class A Applicable Margin, as applicable) in effect on the date immediately preceding the date any event described in clause (a), (b) or (c) occurred (calculated on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed in a year of 360 days).  If subsequent to such suspension of the obligation of a Lender to make or maintain the Class A Loans or the Class B Loans, as applicable, at the LIBOR rate (including the Class A Applicable Margin and the Class B Applicable Margin, as applicable) it becomes lawful for such Lender to make or maintain the Class A Loans or the Class B Loans, as applicable, at the LIBOR rate, or the circumstances described in clause (b) or (c) above no longer exist, such Lender shall so notify the Borrower and its obligation to do so shall be reinstated effective as of the date it becomes lawful for such Lender to make or maintain the Class A Loans or the Class B Loans, as applicable, at the LIBOR rate (including the Class A Applicable Margin and the Class B Applicable Margin, as applicable) or the circumstances described in clause (b) or (c) above no longer exist.

Neither the making of any Loan hereunder, nor the use of the proceeds thereof, will violate or otherwise conflict with the provisions of Regulations T, U or X of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
 
(e) Security Interest.  Notwithstanding the intent of the parties set forth in Section 2.2 of the Sale and Servicing Agreement, the Sale and Servicing Agreement is effective to create a valid and enforceable Lien on the Receivables and the Other Conveyed Property in favor of the Borrower.  The Lien created pursuant to the Sale and Servicing Agreement (a) constitutes a perfected security interest in the Receivables and the Other Conveyed Property in favor of the Borrower, (b) is prior to all other Liens (other than the Lien granted to the Collateral Agent under the Security Agreement), if any, on the Receivables and the Other Conveyed Property, and (c) is enforceable as such as against all Persons.  The Security Agreement is effective to create a valid and enforceable Lien on the Collateral in favor of the Collateral Agent.  The Pledge Agreement is effective to create a valid and enforceable Lien on the Pledged LLC Interests in favor of the Collateral Agent.  The Lien created pursuant to the Security Agreement and the Pledge Agreement, as applicable, (a) constitutes a perfected security interest in the Collateral and the Pledged LLC Interests, as applicable, in favor of the Lenders, (b) is prior to all other Liens, if any, on the Collateral or the Pledged LLC Interests, as applicable, and (c) is enforceable as such as against all Persons.  As of the Closing Date and as of each Settlement Date, all financing statements and continuation statements and amendments thereto have been executed and filed that are necessary to continue and maintain the perfection of the first priority security interest (i) of the Borrower against the Seller in the Receivables and Other Conveyed Property and (ii) of the Collateral Agent against the Borrower in the Collateral and the Pledged LLC Interests.

(i) Rule 17g-5.  CPS has complied with the representations, certifications and covenants made to the Hired NRSRO in connection with the engagement of the Hired NRSRO to issue and monitor a credit rating on the Class A Loans and the Class B Loans, including any certification provided to the Hired NRSRO in connection with clause (a)(3)(iii) of Rule 17g-5.  The Borrower and CPS are the sole parties responsible for compliance with Rule 17g-5 in connection with the issuance and monitoring of the credit ratings on the Class A Loans and the Class B Loans.

(k) Increased Fees and Costs.  The execution, delivery or performance of any Loan Document by CPS and the consummation of any transaction contemplated thereby shall not result in (i) any fees, costs, expenses or penalties payable by CPS or any of its Affiliates or Subsidiaries arising out of or relating to any other instrument, agreement or contract to which CPS or such Affiliate or Subsidiary is a party or to which its property is subject (any such instrument, agreement or contract, an “Unrelated CPS Agreement”) or (ii) any default, event of default, event of termination, event of acceleration, trigger event or similar event under any Unrelated CPS Agreement or otherwise breach or violate the terms of any Unrelated CPS Agreement.

(m) Legal Counsel, etc.  CPS has consulted with its own legal counsel and Independent Accountants to the extent it has deemed necessary regarding the tax, accounting and regulatory consequences of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and CPS is not participating in such transactions in reliance on any representations of a Lender or its Affiliates or counsel, with respect to tax, accounting, regulatory or any other matters, other than the representations and warranties of the Lenders set forth in Section 5.03.
 
(n) Loan Documents.  The Borrower has furnished to the Lenders true, accurate and (except as otherwise consented to by the Lenders) complete copies of all other Loan Documents as of the date of this Agreement, all of which Loan Documents are in full force and effect as of the date of this Agreement and no terms of any such agreements or documents have been amended, modified or otherwise waived as of such date.  CPS is not default under any of its obligations under the Loan Documents.
 
(o) Eligible Receivables.  All of the Receivables included in the Borrowing Base are Eligible Receivables.
 
(p) No Fraudulent Conveyance.  As of the Closing Date and immediately after giving effect to each Loan, the fair value of the assets of the Seller is greater than the fair value of its liabilities (including, without limitation, contingent liabilities of the Seller), and the Seller is and will be solvent, does and intends to pay its debts as they mature and does not and will not have an unreasonably small capital to engage in the business in which it is engaged and proposes to engage.  The Seller does not intend to incur, or believe that it has incurred, debts beyond its ability to pay such debts as they mature.  The Seller is not in default under any material obligation to pay money to any Person.  The Seller is not contemplating the commencement of insolvency, bankruptcy, liquidation or consolidation proceedings or the appointment of a receiver, liquidator, conservator, trustee or similar official in respect of the Seller or any of its assets.  The Seller is not transferring any Receivables or Other Conveyed Property with any intent to hinder, delay or defraud any of its creditors.  The Seller will not use the proceeds from the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or any other Loan Document to give any preference to any creditor or class of creditors.  The Seller has received fair consideration and reasonably equivalent value in exchange for the sale of the Receivables and the Other Conveyed Property by it under the Sale and Servicing Agreement.
 
(q) No Material Adverse Effect; No Default. (i) Neither CPS nor any of its Affiliates is a party to any indenture, loan or credit agreement or any lease or other agreement or instrument or subject to any charter or corporate restriction that could have, and no provision of applicable law or governmental regulation has had or could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect and (ii) neither CPS nor any of its Affiliates is in default under or with respect to any contract, agreement, lease or other instrument to which CPS or any of its Affiliates is a party and which is material to CPS’s or such Affiliate’s condition (financial or otherwise), business, operations or properties, and neither CPS nor any of its Affiliates has delivered or received any notice of default thereunder, other than such defaults as have been waived.  Neither CPS nor the Borrower is party to any agreement, covenant or undertaking that restricts the power or authority of CPS or the Borrower, acting without the consent of any other Person, to amend, waive or otherwise modify any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document.
 
(r) Ownership of Borrower. CPS owns beneficially and of record (i) 100% of the Class A membership interests in the Borrower free and clear of all Liens (other than the Lien granted to the Collateral Agent under the Pledge Agreement), and (ii) 100% of the membership interests in Folio Funding Three LLC free and clear of all Liens, which owns beneficially and of record 100% of the Class B membership interests in the Borrower free and clear of all Liens; subject, however, in the case of CPS’s ownership of Folio Funding Three LLC, to the Permitted LLCP Lien. The Borrower is a disregarded entity for federal income tax purposes and no election has been made or will be made to treat the Borrower as a corporation or an association taxable as a corporation for federal income tax purposes.

SECTION 8.03 The Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent.
 
(a) Each of the Lenders hereby irrevocably appoints the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent (for purposes of this Article VIII, the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent are referred to collectively as the “Agents”) its agent and authorizes the Agents to take such actions on its behalf and to exercise such powers as are delegated to such Agent by the terms of the Loan Documents, together with such actions and powers as are reasonably incidental thereto.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Agents are hereby expressly authorized to execute any and all documents (including releases) with respect to the Collateral and the rights of the Secured Parties with respect thereto, as contemplated by and in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the Security Documents.
 
(b) The financial institution serving as the Administrative Agent and/or the Collateral Agent hereunder shall have the same rights and powers in its capacity as a Lender as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not an Agent, and such financial institution and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to and generally engage in any kind of business with CPS or the Borrower or other Affiliate thereof as if it were not an Agent hereunder.
 
(c) Neither Agent shall have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth in the Loan Documents.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, (a) neither Agent shall be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether a Default has occurred and is continuing, (b) neither Agent shall have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated hereby that such Agent is required to exercise upon receipt of instructions in writing by the Majority Lenders of the Highest Priority Class, and (c) except as expressly set forth in the Loan Documents, neither Agent shall have any duty to disclose, nor shall it be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to the Borrower that is communicated to or obtained by the financial institution serving as Administrative Agent and/or Collateral Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity.  Neither Agent shall be liable for any action taken or not taken by it with the consent or at the request of the Majority Lenders of the Highest Priority Class or in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct.  Neither Agent shall be deemed to have knowledge of any Default unless and until written notice thereof is given to such Agent by the Borrower or a Lender, and neither Agent shall be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain or inquire into (i) any statement, warranty or representation made in or in connection with any Loan Document, (ii) the contents of any certificate, report or other document delivered thereunder or in connection therewith, (iii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants, agreements or other terms or conditions set forth in any Loan Document, (iv) the validity, enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of any Loan Document or any other agreement, instrument or document or (v) the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Article IV or elsewhere in any Loan Document, other than to confirm receipt of items expressly required to be delivered to such Agent.
 
(d) Each Agent shall be entitled to rely upon, and shall not incur any liability for relying upon, any notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, document or other writing believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or sent by the proper person.  Each Agent may also, but shall not be required to, rely upon any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to have been made by the proper person, and shall not incur any liability for relying thereon.  Each Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be counsel for the Borrower), independent accountants and other experts selected by it, and shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it in accordance with the advice of any such counsel, accountants or experts.
 
(e) Each Agent may perform any and all its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by it.  Each Agent and any such sub-agent may perform any and all its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or through their respective Related Parties.  The exculpatory provisions of the preceding paragraphs shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Related Parties of each Agent and any such sub-agent.
 
(f) Subject to the appointment and acceptance of a successor Agent as provided below, either Agent may resign at any time by notifying the Lenders and the Borrower.  Upon any such resignation, the Majority Lenders of the Highest Priority Class shall have the right, in consultation with the Borrower, to appoint a successor.  If no successor shall have been so appointed by the Majority Lenders of the Highest Priority Class and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after the retiring Agent gives notice of its resignation, then the retiring Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Agent which shall be a financial institution with an office in New York, New York, or an Affiliate of any such financial institution or apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor Agent and other applicable relief.  Upon the acceptance of its appointment as Agent hereunder by a successor, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Agent, and the retiring Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder.  The fees payable by the Borrower to a successor Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between the Borrower and such successor.  After an Agent's resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article VIII shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Agent, its sub-agents and their respective Related Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while acting as Agent.
 
(g) Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Agents or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement.  Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Agents or any other Lender and based on such documents and information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement or any other Loan Document, any related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder.
 
(h) Notwithstanding anything contained herein or in any Loan Document, any provisions of the Loan Documents (including the Security Agreement) which empower and/or entitle the Collateral Agent to take action or refrain from taking action, in each case with respect to the Collateral, shall not impose or be deemed to impose on the Collateral Agent an obligation to act independently from the instructions of the Administrative Agent (acting on behalf of the Lenders) or to monitor the contingencies that may give rise to the exercise of such power or entitlement.  The Collateral Agent shall not be required to make any calculation contemplated in this Agreement, is authorized to rely on any calculation performed by the Servicer or the Administrative Agent and shall not have any obligation to verify the accuracy thereof.
 
(i) The Collateral Agent shall not be required to expend or risk any of its own funds or otherwise incur any financial liability in the performance of any of its duties hereunder.  The Collateral Agent shall not be under any duty to give any property held by it as Collateral Agent any greater degree of care than it gives its own similar property and shall not be required to invest any funds held hereunder except as directed by the Instructing Party (which instructions may be standing instructions).  Uninvested funds held hereunder shall not earn or accrue interest.
 
(j) None of the Agents shall incur any liability for not performing any act or fulfilling any duty, obligation or responsibility hereunder by reason of any occurrence beyond the control of the Agents (including but not limited to any act or provision of any present or future law or regulation or governmental authority, any act of God, war or terrorism, or the unavailability of the Federal Reserve Bank wire or facsimile or other wire or communication facility).
 
(k) All instructions to the Collateral Agent required under the Loan Documents shall be delivered to the Collateral Agent in writing executed by an Authorized Person (as hereinafter defined) of the Administrative Agent, the Servicer, or the Borrower (as the case may be).  Prior to the execution of any such instructions, the identity of such Authorized Persons, as well as their specimen signatures, titles, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses, shall be delivered to the Collateral Agent in a form acceptable to the Collateral Agent and shall remain in effect until the applicable party notifies the Collateral Agent of any changes thereto (the person(s) so designated from time to time, the “Authorized Persons”).  The Collateral Agent is authorized to seek confirmation of such instructions by telephone call back to the applicable person(s) specified to the Collateral Agent from time to time by an Authorized Person and the Collateral Agent may rely upon the confirmations of any one purporting to be the person(s) so designated.  To ensure the accuracy of the instructions it receives, the Collateral Agent may record such call backs.  If the Collateral Agent is unable to verify the instructions, or is not satisfied in its sole discretion with the verification it receives, it will not execute the instructions until all issues have been resolved to its satisfaction.  Each of the parties to this Agreement agrees that the above constitutes a commercially reasonable security procedure.
 
(l) To help the U.S. government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.  When an account is opened, the Agents will ask for information that will allow them to identify relevant parties.  The Borrower and Servicer hereby acknowledge such information disclosure requirements and agree to comply with all such information disclosure requests from time to time from the Agents.
 
(m) No printed or other material in any language, including prospectuses, notices, reports, and promotional material which mentions "Citibank", or "Citigroup" or "Citi" by name in its capacity as Collateral Agent or the rights, powers, or duties of the Collateral Agent under the Loan Documents shall be issued by any parties hereto, or on such party's behalf, without the prior written consent of the Collateral Agent.

SECONDARY MARKET RESTRUCTURING TRANSACTIONS
 
SECTION 10.01 Secondary Market Restructuring Transactions Generally.  Without limiting the rights of any Lender under Section 10.03, upon the occurrence of any Event of Default or a Funding Termination Date (excluding any Funding Termination Date caused by an Unrated Level II Trigger Event, unless the Borrower has failed to engage in a Securitization Transaction beyond 120 days after such Unrated Level II Trigger Event), the Administrative Agent shall have the right to restructure all or any part of the Loans, the Secured Obligations or the Collateral (including the Pledged LLC Interests) into multiple tranches, including for inclusion in a Secondary Market Restructuring Transaction.  As used herein, “Secondary Market Restructuring Transaction” means any of (i) the sale, assignment, or other transfer of all or any portion of the Secured Obligations or the Collateral (including the Pledged LLC Interests) or any interest therein to one or more investors through the conversion of some or all of the Class A Loans and Class B Loans into Component Loans pursuant to Section 10.03, (ii) the sale, assignment, or other transfer of one or more Component Loans to one or more investors, (iii) the transfer or deposit of all or any portion of the Loans, the Secured Obligations or the Collateral (including the Pledged LLC Interests) to or with one or more trusts or other entities which may issue notes or other instruments to investors secured by the assets of such trust or the right to receive income or proceeds therefrom or (iv) any other Securitization backed in whole or in part by the Loans, the Secured Obligations or the Collateral (including the Pledged LLC Interests) or any interest therein, in each case upon commercially reasonable terms.  The Administrative Agent shall provide Standard and Poor’s with prompt written notice of any Secondary Market Restructuring Transaction.
 
SECTION 10.02 Cooperation.  Each of CPS and the Borrower shall use commercially reasonable  best efforts and cooperate in good faith with Lender in effecting any such restructuring or Secondary Market Restructuring Transaction.  Such cooperation shall include without limitation, executing and delivering such reasonable amendments to the Loan Documents and the organizational documents of the Borrower as the Administrative Agent may request.  Each of CPS and the Borrower shall be jointly and severally liable to pay on the date of closing of any Secondary Market Restructuring Transaction (the “Secondary Market Closing Date”) the fees charged by each rating agency for the issuance of the ratings assigned to the securities issued in connection with such Secondary Market Restructuring Transaction and thereafter CPS and the Borrower shall be jointly and severally liable to pay any and all fees of such rating agencies for maintaining and/or monitoring such ratings during the terms of such securities.
 
SECTION 10.03 Component Loans.
 
(a) Without limitation on the rights of the Administrative Agent set forth in Sections 10.01 and 10.02, upon the occurrence of any Event of Default, Funding Termination Date or Unrated Level II Trigger Event, the Administrative Agent shall have the right to effect a Secondary Market Restructuring Transaction by causing the Class A Loans and the Class B Loans to be converted into one or more Component Loans secured by the Collateral (including the Pledged LLC Interests) in whatever principal allocation among the Component Loans as the Administrative Agent determines in its sole good faith discretion, and thereafter to engage in sales and assignments with respect to all or any of the Component Loans.  Each of CPS and the Borrower acknowledges that the Component Loans may be rated by one or more rating agencies.  Each of CPS and the Borrower shall be jointly and severally liable to pay on the applicable Secondary Market Closing Date the fees charged by each rating agency for the issuance of the ratings assigned to the Component Loans and thereafter CPS and the Borrower shall be jointly and severally liable to pay any and all fees of such rating agencies for maintaining and/or monitoring such ratings during the terms of such Component Loans.
 
(b) On or before the applicable Secondary Market Closing Date, the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrower of the Component Loan Invested Amount of each Component Loan, provided, that the sum of the initial Component Loan balances shall not exceed the sum of the Class A Invested Amount, the Class B Invested Amount and all accured but unpaid interest thereon as of such Secondary Market Closing Date.  Each Component Loan shall bear interest at the applicable Component Loan Interest Rate.  As of and from such Secondary Market Closing Date, each Class A Lender and Class B Lender shall be deemed to hold the applicable amount of Component Loans exchanged for the Class A Loans and Class B Loans.
 
SECTION 10.04 Cooperation.  In connection with any Secondary Market Restructuring Transaction, CPS and the Borrower, at their sole cost and expense, shall provide such access to personnel and such information and documents relating to the Seller, the Borrower and the Collateral and the business and operations of all of the foregoing and such opinions of counsel (including corporate, nonconsolidation and true sale opinions) as any rating agency may request or as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request (and in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent) in connection with any such Secondary Market Restructuring Transaction including, without limitation, updated financial information and other due diligence investigations together with appropriate verification of such updated information and reports through letters of auditors and consultants and, as of the closing date of the Secondary Market Restructuring Transaction, updated representations and warranties made in the Loan Documents consistent with prior CPS-sponsored Securitizations or otherwise consistent with the terms and conditions of current market securitizations of subprime automobile receivables.  Each of CPS and the Borrower shall deliver such indemnities and other covenants consistent with prior CPS-sponsored Securitizations.  Each of CPS and the Borrower acknowledges and agrees that the Administrative Agent may require the preparation and delivery of preliminary and final private offering memoranda or similar disclosure documents with respect to any Secondary Market Restructuring Transaction, at the sole cost and expense of CPS and the Borrower.  In connection therewith, CPS and the Borrower shall cause counsel for CPS and the Borrower reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, to deliver to the Administrative Agent, a form of an opinion of counsel to the effect that the description of the Collateral, the terms of the Loan Documents and description of the Collateral contained in such disclosure documents and such other legal matters contained therein as the Administrative Agent may reasonably require do not contain any untrue statement of any material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary to make the statements therein not misleading.  The Administrative Agent shall be permitted to share all such information with the investment banking firms, rating agencies, accounting firms, law firms, other third party advisory firms, potential investors, servicers and other service providers and other parties involved in any proposed Secondary Market Restructuring Transaction.  Each of CPS and the Borrower understands that any such information may be incorporated into any offering circular, prospectus, prospectus supplement, private placement memorandum or other offering documents for any Secondary Market Restructuring Transaction.
