ITEM 1.01 ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT

On July 28, 2022, Pulte Mortgage LLC (“Pulte Mortgage”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of PulteGroup, Inc. ("PulteGroup"), entered into a Fourth Amended and Restated Master Repurchase Agreement (the “Repurchase Agreement”) with Comerica Bank, as Agent and representative of itself as a Buyer and the other Buyers ("Agent"), and the other Buyers listed therein. The purpose of the Repurchase Agreement is to finance the origination of mortgage loans by Pulte Mortgage in replacement of a similar agreement that expired on July 28, 2022. The Repurchase Agreement expires on the earlier of (i) July 27, 2023, or (ii) the date when the Buyers’ commitments are terminated pursuant to the Repurchase Agreement, by order of any governmental authority, or by operation of law.

The Repurchase Agreement provides for a maximum aggregate commitment of $800 million, subject to certain sublimits, and contains an accordion feature that could increase the maximum aggregate commitment to $850 million based on the Agent obtaining increased committed sums from existing Buyers. The maximum aggregate commitment is initially set at $655 million but contains a series of increases and decreases in order to adjust the borrowing capacity based on seasonal fluctuations in volume. The maximum aggregate commitment is increased to $800 million on December 27, 2022, reduced to $360 million on January 13, 2023, and increased to $500 million on June 26, 2023.

Advances under the Repurchase Agreement carry a Pricing Rate based on the Daily Adjusting Bloomberg Short Term Bank Yield Rate plus the Applicable Margin, as defined in the Repurchase Agreement, or the Default Pricing Rate, as defined in the Repurchase Agreement. Amounts outstanding under the Repurchase Agreement are not guaranteed by PulteGroup or any of its subsidiaries that guarantee PulteGroup's senior notes.

The Repurchase Agreement contains various affirmative and negative covenants applicable to Pulte Mortgage. The negative covenants include, among others, certain limitations on transactions involving acquisitions, mergers, the incurrence of debt, sale of assets, and creation of liens upon any of its mortgage notes or mortgages subject to the Repurchase Agreement. Additional covenants include quantitative thresholds related to: (i) Adjusted Tangible Net Worth, (ii) Adjusted Tangible Net Worth Ratio, (iii) Liquidity, and (iv) Net Income, each of which is defined in the Repurchase Agreement.

A copy of the Repurchase Agreement is attached as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is herein incorporated by reference. The above referenced summary of the material terms of the Repurchase Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to Exhibit 10.1.

FOURTH AMENDED AND RESTATED MASTER REPURCHASE AGREEMENT THIS FOURTH AMENDED AND RESTATED MASTER REPURCHASE AGREEMENT is made and entered into as of July 28, 2022, between and among Pulte Mortgage LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Seller”), and Comerica Bank, as Agent and representative of itself as a Buyer and the other Buyers (the “Agent” and sometimes “Comerica Bank”), and the other Buyers, as defined in Section 1.2. RECITALS Section 1. Applicability and Defined Terms. 1.1. Applicability. From time to time the parties hereto may enter into transactions in which the Seller agrees to transfer to the Agent on behalf of the Buyers, Eligible Loans on a servicing released basis against the transfer of funds by the Buyers, with a simultaneous agreement by the Buyers to transfer to the Seller such Eligible Loans at a date certain or on demand in the event of termination pursuant to Section 18.2 hereof, or if no demand is sooner made, on the Termination Date, against the transfer of funds by the Seller. Each such transaction shall be referred to herein as a “Transaction” and shall be governed by this Agreement, as hereinafter defined. Comerica Bank has also agreed to provide a separate revolving swing line repurchase facility to initially and temporarily purchase Eligible Loans pending their purchase by all of the Buyers pursuant to this Agreement. The parties hereby specifically declare that it is their intention that this Fourth Amended and Restated Master Repurchase Agreement (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Agreement,” which term includes the preamble above) and the purchases of Eligible Loans made pursuant to it (under both its regular and swing line provisions) are to be treated as repurchase transactions under the Title 11 of the United States Code, as amended (the “Bankruptcy Code’), including all rights that accrue to the Buyers by virtue of sections 559, 561 and 562 of the Bankruptcy Code. This Agreement also contains lien provisions with respect to the Purchased Loans so that if, contrary to the intent of the parties, any court of competent jurisdiction characterizes any Transaction as a financing, rather than a purchase, under applicable law, including the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, the Agent is deemed to have a first priority perfected security interest in and to the Purchased Loans to secure the payment and performance of all of the Seller’s Obligations under this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents. The Buyers’ agreement to establish and continue the revolving repurchase facilities, and Comerica Bank’s agreement to establish and continue such revolving swing line repurchase facility, are each made upon and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If there is any conflict or inconsistency between any of the terms or provisions of this Agreement and any of the other Repurchase Documents, this Agreement shall govern and control. If there is any conflict between any provision of this Agreement and any later supplement, amendment, restatement or replacement of it, then the latter shall govern and control. 4857-1543-7856 RTH ENDED D TED ASTER CHASE EE ENT IS RTH ENDED D TED ASTER CHASE EE ENT ade d t r d t s f ly 8, 2, t en d ong ulte ortgage C, ela are i it d ilit pany e e ler”), d omerica ank, s gent d r sentative f lf s uyer d e t er uyers e gent” d eti es omerica ank”), d e t er uyers, s fi ed cti n . .

related entities may engage in transactions that affect the calculation of the Daily Adjusting BSBY Rate, any Successor Rate or any relevant adjustments thereto, in each case, in a manner adverse to any Seller. The Agent may select information sources or services in its reasonable discretion to ascertain the Daily Adjusting BSBY Rate or any Successor Rate, in each case pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, and shall have no liability to any Seller, any Buyer or any other person or entity for damages of any kind, including direct or indirect, special, punitive, incidental or consequential damages, costs, losses or expenses (whether in tort, contract or otherwise and whether at law or in equity), for any error or calculation of any such rate (or component thereof) provided by any such information source or service. Section 2. The Buyers’ Commitments. 2.1. The Buyers’ Commitments to Purchase. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including without limitation the terms and conditions set forth in Section 4 and Section 14) and provided no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing that has not been waived by the Buyers or the Required Buyers, as applicable (or, if one has occurred and not been so cured or declared waived, if all of the Buyers, in their sole discretion and with or without waiving such Default or Event of Default, have elected in writing that Transactions under this Agreement shall continue nonetheless), the Buyers agree to make revolving purchases of Eligible Loans on a servicing released basis through but not including the Termination Date, so long as the Aggregate Outstanding Purchase Price does not exceed the Maximum Aggregate Commitment and so long as each Buyer’s Committed Sum is not exceeded. The Buyers’ respective Committed Sums and the Maximum Aggregate Commitment are set forth on Schedule BC in effect at the relevant time, as it may have been amended or restated pursuant to this Agreement. Upon the joinder of additional Buyer(s), if any, the parties agree to approve in writing revised and updated versions of Schedule BC. The fractions to be applied to determine the respective Funding Shares of the Buyers for any day are their respective Committed Sums divided by the Maximum Aggregate Commitment for that day. Each Buyer shall be obligated to fund only that Buyer’s own Funding Share of any Transaction requested, and no Buyer shall be obligated to the Seller or any other Buyer to fund a greater share of any Transaction. No Buyer shall be excused from funding its applicable Funding Share of any Transaction merely because any other Buyer has failed or refused to fund its relevant Funding Share of that or any other Transaction. If any Buyer fails to fund its Funding Share of any Transaction (a ‘“Nonfunding Buyer”), the Agent (in its sole and absolute discretion) may choose to fund the amount that such Nonfunding Buyer failed or refused to fund, or the Agent as a Buyer and the other Buyers who are willing to do so may (in each of their sole and absolute discretion) do so in the proportion that the Committed Sum of each bears to the total Committed Sums of all Buyers that have funded (or are funding) their own Funding Shares of that Transaction and that are willing to fund part of the Funding Share of such Nonfunding Buyer. Should the Agent and/or any other Buyer(s) fund any or all of the Nonfunding Buyer’s Funding Share of any Transaction, then the Nonfunding Buyer shall have the obligation to deliver such amount to the Agent (for its own account and/or for distribution to the Buyer(s) who funded it, as the case may be) in immediately available funds on the next Business Day. Regardless of whether the other Buyers fund the Funding Share of the Nonfunding Buyer, the respective ownership interests of the Buyers in the Transaction shall be adjusted as provided in Section 3.10. The obligations of the Buyers hereunder are several and not joint. 36 4857-1543-7856 t d titi s ay age cti ns at ct e l lati n f e aily djusting Y ate, y cce sor ate r y ant j t ents reto, h se, a ner erse y e ler. he gent ay l ct ation rces r ices nable i r ti n ertain e aily djusting Y ate r y cce sor ate, h se rsuant e s f is greement, d a l ve o ilit y e ler, y uyer r y t er rs n r tit r ages f y i d, i g i ct r irect, ecial, nitive, i ental r sequential ages, sts, ses r enses hether rt, ntract r r ise d hether t r uity), r y r r l lati n f y h te r ponent reof) i ed y y h ation rce r r ice. cti n . he uyers’ o mitments. . . e uyers’ mitments urchase. bject e s d nditi ns f is gree ent n i g it out i it ti n e s d diti ns t rt cti n d cti n ) d i ed o efault r vent f efault as u red d ti i g at as ot en aived y e uyers r e equired uyers, s pli able r, e as u red d ot en red r cl red aived, l f e uyers, eir le i r ti n d ith r it out aiving h efault r vent f efault, ve t d riti g at r nsactions der is gree ent a l ti ue netheless), e uyers ree ake l i g rchases f li ible oans i i g d asis h ut t i g e er ination ate, g s e gregate utst ding rchase ri e es ot eed e axi um gregate mitment d g s h uyer’s o mitted ot eeded. he uyers’ ective o mitted s d e axi um gregate mitment re t rt edule C ct t e ant e, s ay ve en ended r t t d rsuant is gr ement. pon e i der f diti nal uyer(s), y, e arties ree r ve riti g i d d dated rsi ns f edule C. he t ns e pli d t ine e ective nding ares f e uyers r y y re eir ective o mitted s i ed y e axi um gregate mitment r at ay. ach uyer a l e li ated d ly at uyer’s n nding are f y r nsaction uested, d o uyer a l e li ated e e ler r y t er uyer d r ater are f y ransaction. o uyer a l e used ing pli able nding are f y r nsaction erely cause y t er uyer as i r ed d ant nding are f at r y t er ransaction. y uyer ils d nding are f y r nsaction “N f ding uyer”), e gent le d solute i reti n) ay ose d e ount at h onfunding uyer i r sed d, r e gent s uyer d e t er uyers ho re i li g ay h f eir le d solute i reti n) e r porti n at e o mitted f h ars e tal o mitted s f l uyers at ve ed r re ding) eir n nding ares f at r nsaction d at re i li g d art f e nding are f h onfunding uyer. ould e gent d/or y t er uyer(s) d y r l f e onfunding uyer’s nding are f y ransaction, n e onfunding uyer a l ve e li ati n li er h ount e gent r n unt d/or r i ti n e uyer(s) ho ed , s e se ay e) ediately ail ble ds e ext usine s ay. egardle s f hether e t er uyers d e nding are f e onfunding uyer, e ective nership t rests f e uyers e r nsaction a l e j sted s r i ed cti n . 0. he li ati ns f e uyers r nder re eral d ot int.

Unless extended in writing or terminated earlier in accordance with this Agreement, the Buyers’ Commitments (including Comerica Bank’s Swing Line Commitment) shall automatically expire at the close of business on the Termination Date, without any requirement for notice or any other action by the Agent, any of the Buyers or any other Person. 2.3. Disbursement of Purchase Prices Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Agent shall deposit the Purchase Prices for the Purchased Loans funded with a Transaction under this Agreement into the Funding Account. Seller is authorized to disburse funds from the Funding Account to fund Transactions and for Seller’s general working capital purposes so long as, in either case, no Event of Default exists or will result from such disbursement. After the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Seller shall have no further access to the Funding Account, and the Funding Account shall be subject to setoff by the Agent for Pro Rata distribution to the Buyers. 2.4. Swing Line Facility. In addition to its Commitment under Section 2.1, the Swing Line Buyer may, in its discretion, fund revolving Swing Line Transactions for aggregate Purchase Prices which do not on any day exceed the Swing Line Limit for the purpose of initially funding requested Transactions. 2.5. Swing Line Transactions. (a) The Seller shall have the right to request a Swing Line Transaction and Swing Line Buyer may, in its discretion, agree to fund such Swing Line Transaction: (1) only if such Swing Line Transaction fully qualifies in all respects for funding as Regular Transaction under this Agreement; (11) provided that no Default has occurred that has not been cured before it has become an Event of Default, and no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing that has not been waived by the Buyers or the Required Buyers, as applicable and all conditions precedent in Section 14.1 (with respect to the initial purchase hereunder) and Section 14.2 have been satisfied; (iii) so long as (A) the Swing Line Limit is not exceeded and (B) such Swing Line Transaction will not cause the sum of Comerica Bank’s Funding Share of the Swing Line Transactions plus Comerica Bank’s Funding Share of all Open Transactions to exceed Comerica Bank’s Commitment; (iv) so long as, after giving effect to the proposed Swing Line Transaction, the Aggregate Outstanding Purchase Price would not exceed the Maximum Aggregate Commitment; (v) provided that a Request/Confirmation has been received by the Agent and the Swing Line Buyer by no later than 3:30 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on the Business Day such Transaction is to be funded; 37 4857-1543-7856 . . xpiration r ination f e mitments. nle s t ed riti g r i ated rlier r ance ith is gr ement, e uyers’ o mitments i g omerica ank’s ing i e o mitment) a l t atically pire t e se f sine s e er ination ate, it out y i ent r tice r y t er t n y e gent, y f e uyers r y t er erson. . . is urse ent f urchase rices bject e s d diti ns f is greement, gent a l posit e rchase ri es r e r hased oans ed ith r nsaction der is gree ent t e nding count. e ler t ri ed i urse ds e nding count d r nsactions d r e ler’s neral orking pital r oses g s, er se, o vent f efault ists r i l sult h r ent. fter e urrence d ri g e ti ance f vent f efault, e ler a l ve o rt er e s e nding count, d e nding count a l e ject t f y e gent r ro ata i ti n e uyers. . . ing i e ac lity. diti n mitment der cti n . , e ing i e uyer ay, i reti n, d l i g ing i e r nsactions r regate rchase ri es hich t y y eed e ing i e i it r e r ose f it ll ing ested ransactions. . . ing i e nsactions. ) he e ler a l ve e ht uest ing i e r nsaction d ing i e uyer ay, i retion, ree d h ing i e ransaction: i) ly h ing i e r nsaction ll alifies l ects r i g s egular r nsaction der is gr ement; ii) i ed at o efault as u red at as ot en r d fore as e vent f efault, d vent f efault as u red d ti ing at as ot en aived y e uyers r e equired uyers, s pli able d l diti ns r edent cti n .1 ith ect e itial rchase r nder) d cti n .2 ve en ti fi d; ii) g s ) e ing i e i it ot eded d ) h ing i e r nsaction i l ot se e f omerica ank’s nding are f e ing i e r nsactions l s omerica ank’s nding are f l pen r nsactions eed omerica ank’s o mitment; ) g s, t r i i g ct e osed ing i e ransaction, e gregate utst ding rchase ri e ould ot eed e axi um gregate o mitment; ) i ed at equest/ onfir ation as en i ed y e gent d e ing i e uyer y o t r n : 0 . . etroit, ichigan e) e usine s ay h r nsaction e ded;


 
(vi) provided that the Agent has received a satisfactory Purchased Loan Activity Summary Report and, if requested by Agent, Eligible Loans Report, from the Custodian on such date; and (vil) provided that the Seller is not aware of any reason why the requested Transaction cannot or will not be fully funded by the Buyers on the first Swing Line Refunding Due Date following the Business Day on which the Swing Line Transaction is to be funded. (b) All Swing Line Transactions shall have a Price Differential from the date funded until the date repaid and the Repurchase Price therefor shall be due and payable to Comerica Bank at the same rate(s) as would be applicable if such Swing Line Transactions had been funded as Regular Transactions by all Buyers, instead of having been funded by the Swing Line Buyer alone as Swing Line Transactions. (©) On each Swing Line Refunding Due Date, each Swing Line Transaction shall terminate and the Seller shall repurchase all Purchased Loans subject to such Swing Line Transaction to the extent such Transaction is not converted to a Regular Transaction pursuant to this Section 2.5. (d) The Swing Line Buyer may at any time in its sole discretion with respect to any outstanding Swing Line Transaction, require each Buyer (including the Swing Line Buyer) to fund such Swing Line Transaction, by delivering notice to each Buyer. Unless an Event of Default under Section 18.1(b) shall have occurred and be continuing on such Swing Line Refunding Due Date (in which event the procedures under clause (e) shall apply), no later than 4:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on such Swing Line Refunding Due Date, each Buyer shall transfer its Funding Share in immediately available funds to Agent, at the office of Agent located at 411 W. Lafayette Blvd. Detroit, MI 48226, which shall be paid by Agent to the Swing Line Buyer for application against the Swing Line Transaction, whereupon the Swing Line Transaction shall be deemed a Regular Transaction. (e) If, on any Swing Line Refunding Due Date, an Event of Default under Section 18.1(b) shall have occurred and be continuing, each Buyer shall, no later than 4:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on such Swing Line Refunding Due Date, purchase a participation in the Swing Line Transaction by immediately transferring to the Agent, for the benefit of the Swing Line Buyer, in immediately available funds, an amount equal to its Funding Share of the Purchase Price of such Swing Line Transaction, and upon its receipt thereof, the Agent shall deliver to such Buyer a certificate evidencing such participation. (f) Unless a Buyer shall have notified the Swing Line Buyer, prior to any Swing Line Transaction, that any applicable condition precedent set forth in Sections 14.1 or 14.2 had not then been satisfied, such Buyer’s obligation to convert the Swing Line Transaction to a Regular Transaction pursuant to clause (d) of this Section 2.5 or to purchase a participation in respect of such Swing Line Transaction pursuant to clause (e) of this Section 2.5 shall be unconditional, continuing, irrevocable and absolute and shall 38 4857-1543-7856 i) i ed at e gent as i ed t ry r hased oan ctivity mary eport d, ested y gent, li ible oans eport, e ustodian h ate; d ii) i ed at e e ler t are f y n hy e ested r nsaction not r i l ot e ll ed y e uyers e t ing i e efunding ue ate o ing e usine s ay hich e ing i e r nsaction e ded. ) ll ing i e r nsactions a l ve ri e i ferential e te ed ntil e te aid d e epurchase ri e r for a l e e d yable omerica ank t e e t (s) s ould e pli able h ing i e r nsactions d en ed s egular r nsactions y l uyers, d f ing en ed y e ing i e uyer e s ing i e ransactions. c) n h ing i e ef nding ue ate, h ing i e r nsaction a l inate d e e ler a l r hase l r hased oans ject h ing i e r nsaction e tent h r nsaction ot verted egular r nsaction rsuant is cti n . . ) he ing i e uyer ay t y e le i r ti n ith ect y t i g ing i e ransaction, uire h uyer n i g e ing i e uyer) d h ing i e ransaction, y l ri g tice h uyer. nle s vent f efault der cti n .

not be affected by any circumstances, including, without limitation, (i) any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Buyer may have against the Agent, the Swing Line Buyer or any other Person, (ii) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or Event of Default, (iii) any adverse change in the condition (financial or otherwise) of the Seller, (iv) the expiration, cancellation or termination, with or without cause of some or all of such Buyers’ Commitments or if such Commitment has been waived, released or excused for any reason whatsoever or (v) any other circumstances, happening or event whatsoever. In the event that any Buyer fails to make payment to the Agent of any amount due under this Section 2.5, the Agent shall be entitled to receive, retain and apply against such obligation the Repurchase Prices (including Price Differential) otherwise payable to such Buyer hereunder until the Agent receives such payment from such Buyer or such obligation is otherwise fully satisfied. In addition to the foregoing, if for any reason any Buyer fails to make payment to the Agent of any amount due under this Section 2.5, such Buyer shall be deemed, at the option of the Agent, to have unconditionally and irrevocably purchased from the Swing Line Buyer, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation in the applicable Swing Line Transaction in the amount of such Buyer’s Funding Share of that Transaction, and such interest and participation may be recovered from such Buyer together with interest thereon at the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation (plus any administrative, processing or similar fees assessed by Agent in connection with the foregoing) for each day during the period commencing on the date of demand and ending on the date such amount is received. On the Termination Date, the Seller shall repurchase all Purchased Loans then subject to a Swing Line Transaction. (2) The Agent shall disburse to the Swing Line Buyer an amount equal to the sum of the Funding Shares funded by all of the other Buyers in respect of the refunding of any Swing Line Transaction; provided that if a Buyer other than the Swing Line Buyer advises the Agent by telephone and confirms the advice by fax that such Buyer has placed all of its Funding Share on the federal funds wire to the Agent, the Agent shall continue to keep the Swing Line Transaction outstanding to the extent of that Buyer’s Funding Share so wired until such Buyer’s Funding Share is received by Agent, and the Agent shall then repay the Swing Line Buyer that still-outstanding portion of the Swing Line Transaction from such funds wired to and received by the Agent, and the Price Differential accrued at the Pricing Rate(s) applicable to the Transaction on that Funding Share for the period from (and including) the relevant Swing Line Refunding Due Date to (but excluding) the date such Buyer’s Funding Share is received by the Agent shall belong to the Swing Line Buyer. If any Buyer fails to fund its Funding Share to fund a Swing Line Transaction in accordance with clause (d) of this Section 2.5, or fails to fund its Funding Share to purchase a participation in a Swing Line Transaction in accordance with clause (e) of this Section 2.5, then that Buyer shall also be obligated to pay to the Swing Line Buyer interest on the Funding Share so due from such Buyer to the Swing Line Buyer at the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation (plus any administrative, processing or similar fees assessed by Agent in connection with the foregoing) from (and including) such Swing Line Refunding Due Date to (but excluding) the date of payment of such required amount. 39 4857-1543-7856 ot e t d y y stances, l ing, it out i itati n, ) y t- f, nterclai , ent, f nse r t er t hich h uyer ay ve ainst e gent, e ing i e uyer r y t er erson, i) e urrence r ti ance f efault r vent f efault, ii) y erse ge e diti n cial r r ise) f e e ler, ) e piration, ce lati n r ination, ith r it out se f e r l f h uyers’ mitments r h mitment as en aived, ed r sed r y n hatsoever r ) y t er stances, pening r ent hatsoever. e ent at y uyer ils ake ent e gent f y ount e der is cti n . , e gent a l e titl d eive, t i d ply ainst h li ati n e epurchase ri es i g rice i ferential) r ise yable h uyer r nder ntil e gent i es h ent h uyer r h li ati n r ise ll ti fi d. diti n e oing, r y n y uyer ils ake ent e gent f y ount e der is cti n . , h uyer a l e ed, t e ti n f e gent, ve conditionally d rre ably r ased e ing i e uyer, it out urse r a ranty, divi ed t rest d rti i ati n e pli able ing i e r nsaction e ount f h uyer’s nding are f at ransaction, d h t rest d rti i ati n ay e ered h uyer et er ith t rest n t e r ater f e ederal nds ffective ate d te ined y e gent r ance ith king ustry les k pensation l s y inistrative, r ce sing r ilar s ssed y gent nection ith e oing) r h y ri g e ri d mencing e ate f and d i g e ate h ount i ed. n e er ination ate, e e ler a l r hase l rchased oans n ject ing i e ransaction. g) he gent a l i urse e ing i e uyer ount ual e f e nding ares ed y l f e t er uyers ect f e ding f y ing i e ransaction; i ed at uyer t er n e ing i e uyer vises e gent y e ne d fi s e vice y at h uyer as l ed l f nding are e eral ds ire e gent, e gent a l ti ue ep e ing i e r nsaction t ing e tent f at uyer’s nding are ired ntil h uyer’s nding are i ed y gent, d e gent a l n ay e ing i e uyer at ll-ou sta i g rti n f e ing i e r nsaction h ds ired d i ed y e gent, d e ri e i ferential r ed t e ri i g ate(s) pli able e r nsaction at nding are r e ri d d ing) e ant ing i e efunding ue ate ut cl ding) e te h uyer’s nding are i ed y e gent a l l ng e ing i e uyer. y uyer ils d nding are d ing i e r nsaction r ance ith se ) f is cti n . , r ils d nding are rchase arti i ati n ing i e r nsaction r ance ith se ) f is cti n . , n at uyer a l l e li ated ay e ing i e uyer t rest e nding are e h uyer e ing i e uyer t e r ater f e ederal nds ffective ate d te ined y e gent r ance ith king ustry les k pensation l s y inistrative, r ce sing r ilar s ssed y gent nection ith e oing) d l ing) h ing i e efunding ue ate t cl ding) e ate f ent f h ired ount.


 
(h) All accrued Price Differential on Swing Line Transactions shall be due and payable by the Seller to the Agent (for distribution to the Swing Line Buyer) on the Price Differential payment due date (determined under Section 5) next following the date of the Swing Line Transaction. All Price Differential accrued on Swing Line Transactions through the applicable Swing Line Refunding Due Date shall be due and payable by the Seller to the Agent (for distribution to the Swing Line Buyer) no later than two (2) Business Days after the applicable Swing Line Refunding Due Date, but in no than event later the Termination Date. 2.6. Optional Termination, Reduction and Increase of Buyers’ Commitments. (a) The Seller may, at any time, without premium or penalty, upon not less than five (5) Business Days prior written notice to the Agent, terminate the Maximum Aggregate Commitment. Upon termination in full of the Buyers’ Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.6, the Seller shall pay to the Agent for the ratable benefit of the Buyers the full amount of all outstanding Obligations under the Repurchase Documents. (b) If the Seller shall request in writing to the Agent a temporary increase in the Maximum Aggregate Commitment, the Agent, at its discretion, shall endeavor to obtain increased Committed Sums from existing Buyers, new Commitments from prospective new Buyers or such combination thereof as the Agent shall elect, to achieve such requested increase; provided that (i) after giving effect to such increases, the Maximum Aggregate Commitment shall not exceed $850,000,000, (ii) no Buyer shall have an obligation to increase its Committed Sum, (iii) such written request by the Seller is delivered to the Agent at least thirty (30) days (or such shorter period of time as agreed to by Agent) before the requested effective date of the increase, (iv) no Default and no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and (v) such increase shall only be in effect from the date of such increase until the first date thereafter that the Maximum Aggregate Commitment increases or decreases in accordance with Schedule BC (each, a “Temporary Increase Period”). Neither the Agent nor any Buyer shall be liable to the Seller or to any other Person in the event that the Agent determines not to endeavor to obtain, or endeavors to obtain but fails to obtain, increased Committed Sums from existing Buyers, new Commitments from prospective new Buyers, or any combination thereof. In connection with any increase in the Maximum Aggregate Commitment under this paragraph, Agent may require that this Agreement be amended to effectuate such increase. (c) If an increase in the Maximum Aggregate Commitment is achieved pursuant to clause (b) above, then (i) the Pro Rata ownership interest in the Purchased Loans of each Buyer shall, following funding by the new or increasing Buyers and for the duration of the applicable Temporary Increase Period, be appropriately adjusted following the funding of new and increasing Buyers and application of such amounts received to the other Buyers who did not increase their Committed Sums, (ii) each new Buyer shall execute and deliver to the Agent a joinder to this Agreement in a form acceptable to the Agent, and if requested by the Agent, an administrative questionnaire in a form acceptable to the Agent, (iii) Schedule BC shall be updated and the updates executed and delivered by the Agent to the Seller and each of the Buyers and, effective as 40 4857-1543-7856 0 ) l r ed ri e i ferential ing i e r nsactions a l e e d yable y e e ler e gent r i ti n e ing i e uyer) e ri e i ferential ent e ate i ed der cti n ) ext o ing e te f e ing i e ransaction. l rice i ferential r ed ing i e r nsactions h e pli able ing i e efunding ue ate a l e e d yable y e e ler e gent r i ti n e ing i e uyer) o t r n o ) usine s ays ft r e pli able ing i e efunding ue ate, ut o n ent t r e er ination ate. . . pti nal r ination, eduction d rease f uyers’ o mitments. ) he e ler ay, t y e, it out i r enalty, on ot s n e ) usine s ays ri r ri t n tice e gent, inate e axi um gregate o mitment. pon inati n l f e uyers’ o mitments rsuant is cti n . , e e ler a l ay e gent r e t le nefit f e uyers e l ount f l t t ding bligations der e epurchase ocuments. ) e e ler a l uest riti g e gent e porary r ase e axi um gregate o mitment, e gent, t i retion, a l eavor tain sed o mitted s isti g uyers, o mitments r spective uyers r h bination r f s e gent a l l ct, i ve h ested r ase; r i ed at ) t r i i g ct h r ases, e axi um gregate mitment a l t eed 0,0 0, 0, i) o uyer a l ve li ati n r ase o mitted , i) h ri t n uest y e e ler l red e gent t st irt ) ys r h rter ri d f e s r ed y gent) fore e ested ti e ate f e r ase, ) o efault d o vent f efault as u red d ti i g d ) h r ase a l ly e ct e te f h r ase ntil e st ate reafter at e axi um gregate mitment ases r creases r ance ith edule ch, porary r ase eri d”). either e gent r y uyer a l e le e e ler r y t er ers n e ent at e gent t ines t eavor tain, r eavors tain ut ils tain, sed o mitted s isti g uyers, mitments r spective uyers, r y bination reof. nection ith y r ase e axi um gregate mitment der is r graph, gent ay uire at is gree ent e ended t ate h r ase. ) r ase e axi um gregate mitment i ed rsuant se ) ove, n ) e ro ata nership t rest e r hased oans f h uyer all, o ing ing y e r si g uyers d r e rati n f e pli able porary r ase eriod, e ropriately j sted o ing e ing f d si g uyers d pli ati n f h ounts i ed e t er uyers ho i ot ase eir o mitted s, i) h uyer a l ecute d li er e gent i der is gree ent eptable e gent, d ested y e gent, inistrative esti nnaire eptable e gent, ii) edule a l e dated d e dates cuted d l red e gent e e ler d h f e uyers d, cti e s

Each Request/Confirmation shall be binding on the parties, unless written notice of objection is received by the Agent prior to the funding of any related Transaction by any Buyer. In the event of any conflict between the terms of a Request/Confirmation and this Agreement, this Agreement shall prevail. 3.3. Transaction Termination; Purchase Price Decrease. (a) Automatic Termination. Each Transaction, or applicable portion thereof, will automatically terminate on the earlier of (i) the date or dates when the subject Purchased Loans are purchased by Approved Investor(s) and (ii) the Termination Date. Upon any such automatic termination, the Seller shall repurchase all applicable Purchased Loans in accordance with Section 3.3(c). (b) Termination Upon Occurrence of Disqualifier. If any Disqualifier occurs in respect of a Purchased Loan, (i) the Buyers shall reconvey to the Seller or its designee the applicable Purchased Loan, servicing released, and (ii) if and only to the extent of any Margin Deficit that exists as determined in accordance with Section 6.1, the Seller shall immediately pay the Repurchase Price with respect to the applicable Purchased Loan (but only to the extent of the Margin Deficit) in immediately available funds to the account referred to in Section 3.4. (c) How Terminations will be Effected. Termination of a Transaction (or the applicable portion thereof) will be effected by (i) the Buyers’ reconveyance to the Seller or its designee of applicable Purchased Loans, servicing released, and payment of any Income in respect thereof received by the Agent and not previously either paid to the Seller or applied as a credit to the Seller’s Obligations, and (ii) payment of the Repurchase Price with respect to the applicable Purchased Loans in immediately available funds to the account referred to in Section 3.4 on the Repurchase Date, so that the Agent receives the Repurchase Price (for Pro Rata distribution to the Buyers) in immediately available funds on that same Business Day; provided that the portion of the Repurchase Price attributable to accrued and unpaid Price Differential for the Repurchased Loan shall be due on the next Price Differential payment date in accordance with Section 5.3; provided further that all accrued and unpaid Price Differential shall be due and payable on the Termination Date.

3.9. Application of Purchase Price Decreases . Upon receipt by the Agent of amounts paid or prepaid as Purchase Price Decreases (except upon the exercise of remedies provided in Section 18) the Agent shall apply amounts so received to outstanding Purchase Price. 3.10. Defaulting Buyers. (a) Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if any Buyer becomes a Defaulting Buyer, then the following provisions shall apply for so long as such Buyer is a Defaulting Buyer: (1) The applicable fees shall cease to accrue on the unfunded portion of the Commitment of such Defaulting Buyer pursuant to Section 9.1; (ii) The Commitment of and the outstanding Purchase Prices paid by such Defaulting Buyer shall not be included in determining whether all Buyers or the Required Buyers have taken or may take any action hereunder (including any consent to any amendment or waiver pursuant to Section 22), provided that (a) the Committed Sum of any Defaulting Buyer may not be increased or extended without the consent of such Buyer, and (b) any amendment, waiver, consent or other action or inaction requiring the consent of all Buyers or each affected Buyer that by its terms affects any Defaulting Buyer more adversely than the other affected Buyers shall require the consent of such Defaulting Buyer; (ii1)) If any Swing Line Transactions shall exist at the time a Buyer becomes a Defaulting Buyer, then the Seller shall within one Business Day following notice by the Agent repurchase the Purchased Loans subject to such Swing Line Transaction. (b) Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if the Defaulting Buyer is a Nonfunding Buyer, and the Agent or the other Buyer(s) (electively, in accordance with Section 2.1) fund or pay any other amounts required to be paid by it hereunder which the Nonfunding Buyer failed to fund or pay (the “Unfunded Amount”), then (1) the respective ownership interests of both (A) the Nonfunding Buyer and (B) Agent or the Buyer (or Buyers) that funded or paid the Unfunded Amount, shall be proportionately decreased and increased, respectively, to the same extent as if their respective Committed Sums were changed in direct proportion to the unreimbursed balance outstanding from time to time thereafter of the amount so funded or paid, (ii) the Nonfunding Buyer’s share of all subsequent distributions of Repurchase Prices and other realizations on the Purchased Loans received shall be paid to the Agent and/or other Buyer(s) that so funded the Unfunded Amount until the Agent and/or such other Buyer(s) have been fully repaid the amount so funded or paid; and 44 4857-1543-7856 4 . . plication f urchase rice ecreases pon eipt y e gent f ounts aid r r aid s rchase rice ecreases ept on e ercise f edies i ed cti n ) e gent a l ply ounts i ed t t ding rchase rice. . 0. efaulti g uyers. ) otwithstanding y r visi n f is gree ent e ntrary, y uyer es efaulting uyer, n e o i g r visi ns a l ply r g s h uyer efaulting uyer: i) he pli able s a l ase rue e f ded rti n f e mitment f h efaulting uyer rsuant cti n . ; i) he mitment f d e t t ing rchase ri es aid y h efaulti g uyer a l ot e ed t ining hether l uyers r e equired uyers ve n r ay e y ti n r nder n i g y sent y endment r aiver rsuant cti n 2), i ed at ) e o mitted f y efaulting uyer ay ot e sed r t ed it out e sent f h uyer, d ) y endment, aiver, sent r t er ti n r ti n uiri g e sent f l uyers r h t d uyer at y s cts y efaulting uyer ore ersely n e t er t d uyers a l uire e sent f h efaulting uyer; ii) y ing i e r nsactions a l ist t e e uyer es efaulting uyer, n e e ler a l ithin e usine s ay o ing tice y e gent r hase e r hased oans ject h ing i e ransaction. ) otwithstanding y r visi n f is gree ent e ntrary, e efaulting uyer onfunding uyer, d e gent r e t er uyer(s) ti ely, r ance ith cti n . ) d r y y t er ounts uired e aid y r nder hich e onfunding uyer i d r ay e nfunded mount”), n i) e ective nership rests f th ) e onfunding uyer d ) gent r e uyer r uyers) at ed r aid e nfunded mount, a l e r porti nately r ased d ased, ectively, e e tent s eir ective o mitted s ere ged i ct r porti n e r bursed l ce t ing e e reafter f e ount ed r aid; i) e onfunding uyer’s are f l s quent i ti ns f epurchase ri es d t er l ti ns e r hased oans i ed a l e aid e gent d/or t er uyer(s) at ed e nfunded ount ntil e gent d/or h t er uyer(s) ve en ll aid e ount ed r aid; d


 
(ii1)) such adjustment shall remain in effect until such time as the Agent and/or other Buyer(s) that funded or paid the Unfunded Amount have been so fully repaid. (c) If no other Buyer funds or pays any of the Unfunded Amount, then the Pro Rata ownership interests of the Buyers in the Purchased Loans shall be changed, so that each Buyer’s Pro Rata ownership interest in the Purchased Loans is equal to the ratio of (1) the sum of the portions of the Purchase Prices paid by that Buyer in all Open Transactions on that day, together with all other unreimbursed amounts paid by that Buyer under this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents (including, without limitation, in respect of Swing Line Transactions and under Sections 22.10(d) hereof) as of such day to (ii) the total of the Purchase Prices paid by all Buyers in all Open Transactions on that day, together with all other unreimbursed amounts paid by all Buyers under this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents (including, without limitation, in respect of Swing Line Transactions and under Section 22.10(d) hereof) as of such day. The Nonfunding Buyer’s share of all subsequent distributions of any Repurchase Price, Margin Deficit payments and other realizations on the Purchased Loans received shall be paid to the other Buyers, pro rata among them in the ratio that the Pro Rata ownership interest in the Purchased Loans owned by each bears to the aggregate Pro Rata ownership interests in the Purchased Loans of all such other Buyers, and the Buyers’ respective Pro Rata ownership interests in the Purchased Loans shall be readjusted after each such payment, until their Pro Rata ownership interests are restored to what they were before any Nonfunding Buyer failed to fund or pay the Unfunded Amount. Notwithstanding any such changes in the Buyers’ Pro Rata ownership interests in any Purchased Loan due to Nonfunding Buyer’s failure to fund or pay an Unfunded Amount, such failure to fund shall not diminish any Buyer’s Funding Share(s) for subsequent Transactions. (d) Without limiting the foregoing, in the event that a Buyer becomes a Nonfunding Buyer, such Nonfunding Buyer shall have no right to receive any amounts owing to such Nonfunding Buyer under this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents until such Buyer ceases to be a Nonfunding Buyer, which shall occur: (i) in the event that the Agent or any other Buyer(s) fund or pay the Unfunded Amount (as described in Section 3.10(c)), at the time the Agent and/or such other Buyer(s) have been fully repaid the amount so funded or paid; and (ii) in the event that neither the Agent nor any other Buyer funds or pays any of the Unfunded Amount (as described in Section 3.10(c), at the time the Buyers’ Pro Rata ownership interests are restored to what they were before such Nonfunding Buyer failed to fund or pay the Unfunded Amount. (e) For so long as such Buyer is a Nonfunding Buyer, all of the following shall apply: (1) The amounts owing by such Nonfunding Buyer under this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents shall be deducted from and set off against the amounts otherwise owing to such Nonfunding Buyer under this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents. 45 4857-1543-7856 5 ii) h j t ent a l ain ct ntil h e s e gent d/or t er uyer(s) at ed r aid e nfunded ount ve en ll aid. ) o t er uyer ds r ays y f e nfunded mount, n e ro ata nership t rests f e uyers e r hased oans a l e nged, at h uyer’s ro ata nership t rest e r hased oans ual e ti f i) e f e rti ns f e rchase ri es aid y at uyer l pen r nsactions at y, et er ith l t er r bursed ounts aid y at uyer der is gree ent r e t er epurchase ocuments ing, it out i itati n, ect f ing i e r nsactions d der cti ns . 0(d) reof) s f h y i) e tal f e rchase ri es aid y l uyers l pen r nsactions at y, ether ith l t er r bursed ounts aid y l uyers der is gree ent r e t er epurchase ocuments ing, it out i itati n, ect f ing i e r nsactions d der cti n . 0(d) reof) s f h ay. he onfunding uyer’s are f l s quent i ti ns f y epurchase rice, argin eficit ents d t er l ti ns e r hased oans i ed a l e aid e t er uyers, ro ta ong e ti at e ro ata nership t rest e rchased oans ned y h ears e regate ro ata nership rests e r hased oans f l h t er uyers, d e uyers’ ective ro ata nership rests e r hased oans a l e j sted ft r h h ent, ntil eir ro ata nership t rests re r d hat y ere fore y onfunding uyer i d r y e nfunded mount. otwithstanding y h ges e uyers’ ro ata nership rests y r hased an e onfunding uyer’s i re d r y nfunded mount, h i re d a l ot inish y uyer’s nding are(s) r s quent ransactions. ) ithout i iti g e oing, e ent at uyer es onfunding uyer, h onfunding uyer a l ve o t i e y ounts ing h onfunding uyer der is gree ent r e t er epurchase ocuments ntil h uyer ses e onfunding uyer, hich a l cur: ) e ent at e gent r y t er uyer(s) d r ay e nfunded ount s scri ed cti n . 0(c)), t e e e gent d/or h t er uyer(s) ve en ll aid e ount ed r aid; d i) e ent at eit er e gent r y t er uyer ds r ays y f e nfunded ount s scri ed cti n . 0(c), t e e e uyers’ ro ata nership rests re t r d hat y ere fore h onfunding uyer i d r y e nfunded mount. ) or g s h uyer onfunding uyer, l f e o ing a l ply: i) he ounts ing h onfunding uyer der is gree ent d e t er epurchase ocuments a l e ucted d t ff ainst e ounts r ise ing h onfunding uyer der is gree ent d e t er epurchase ocuments.


 
(11) Such Nonfunding Buyer shall immediately pay to the Agent all sums of any kind paid to or received by such Nonfunding Buyer from the Seller or otherwise with respect to the Facility, whether pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents or in connection with the realization of the security therefor. Notwithstanding the fact that such Nonfunding Buyer may temporarily hold such sums, such Nonfunding Buyer shall be deemed to hold the same as a trustee and for the benefit of the Agent, it being the express intention of the Buyers that the Agent shall distribute such sums in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. 63) Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, if a Buyer becomes a Defaulting Buyer hereunder, then until such Buyer ceases to be a Defaulting Buyer, the Agent shall have the right, in its sole and absolute discretion and at such time or times that the Agent shall determine, to apply amounts which otherwise would be owing to such Defaulting Buyer under this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents to a deposit account, to be held in such account and released as appropriate to satisfy such Defaulting Buyer’s potential future funding obligations with respect to Transactions (including Swing Line Transactions) under this Agreement. (2) If any Buyer becomes a Defaulting Buyer hereunder, then the Seller may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Buyer and the Agent, require such Buyer to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions set forth in Section 22.17) all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement to an assignee (which assignee may be another Buyer) that shall assume such obligations, all in accordance with the procedures and conditions set forth in Section 26.4 hereof. (h) In the event that the Agent, the Seller and the Swing Line Buyer each agrees that a Defaulting Buyer has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Buyer to be a Defaulting Buyer (“Redeemed Buyer”), then the Swing Line Exposure of the other Buyers shall be readjusted to reflect the inclusion of such Redeemed Buyer’s Commitment and on such date such Redeemed Buyer shall purchase from the other Buyers at par a portion of the Open Transactions and take such other actions as the Agent shall determine may be necessary in order for such Redeemed Buyer to participate in such Open Transactions in accordance with its Pro Rata share, at which point the Redeemed Buyer shall cease to be a Defaulting Buyer. For purposes of this Section 3.10, “Swing Line Exposure” means, with respect to any Buyer at any time, such Buyer’s Pro Rata share of the aggregate Purchase Prices of all Swing Line Transactions outstanding at such time. (1) Nothing contained in the foregoing shall be deemed to constitute a waiver by the Seller of any of its rights or remedies (whether in equity or law) against any Buyer which fails to fund any Transaction hereunder at the time or in the amount required to be funded under the terms of this Agreement. 3.11. eMortgage Loan Transactions.

Purchase Prices of all Purchased Loans shall be the Default Pricing Rate from (and including) (a) the day immediately following the Repurchase Date for any Past Due Purchased Loan and until (but excluding) the date on which such Past Due Purchased Loan is repurchased by transfer to the Agent (for Pro Rata distribution to the Buyers) of its full Repurchase Price in immediately available funds; and (b) the date designated by the Agent to the Seller after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default under Section 18.1. 5.3. Price Differential Payment Due Dates. Seller shall pay to Agent for Pro Rata distribution to the Buyers and Swing Line Buyer, as applicable, on the fifth (5) Business Day of each month before the Termination Date, Price Differential on each Open Transaction accrued and unpaid to the end of the preceding month, whether or not such Transaction is still an Open Transaction on such payment due date; provided that (a) all accrued and unpaid Price Differential on all Transactions shall be due on the Termination Date, and (b) all Pricing Differential calculated at the Default Pricing Rate shall be due on demand by Agent in its individual capacity or at the direction of the Required Buyers. 5.4. Adjustments to Buyer's Price Differential based on Qualifying Balances A particular Buyer and the Seller may, from time to time, agree by separate agreement to adjustments to such Buyer’s Price Differential based on Qualifying Balances (“Price Differential Adjustment Agreement”), provided, however, that no such adjustments shall result in a Buyer receiving more than it would have been entitled to receive with respect to any Transaction under the terms of this Agreement. Prior to or concurrently with the execution of any Price Differential Adjustment Agreement, any such Buyer shall inform the Agent of the terms of any such adjustments (such terms to be administratively acceptable to Agent). Such Buyer shall notify Agent of any adjustments to the Price Differential made pursuant to a Price Differential Adjustment Agreement in accordance with this Section 5.4. The adjustments identified in such notice shall become effective on a date determined by Agent (but in any event shall not become effective prior to the date such notice is received). Section 6. Margin Maintenance. 6.1. Margin Deficit. (a) If at any time the aggregate Purchase Value of all Purchased Loans subject to all Transactions hereunder is less than the aggregate Repurchase Price (excluding Price Differential), minus, without duplication, cash transfers previously made from the Seller to the Agent in response to previous Margin Calls, if any, for all such Transactions (a “Margin Deficit”), then by notice to the Seller (a “Margin Call”), the Agent shall require the Seller to transfer (for the account of the Buyers) to the Agent (in the case of cash) or the Custodian (in the case of Additional Purchased Loans, as defined below), as appropriate, either (at the Seller’s option) cash, additional Eligible Loans reasonably acceptable to the Agent (“Additional Purchased Loans’), or a combination of cash and Additional Purchased Loans, so that the cash and the aggregate Purchase Value of the Purchased Loans, including any such Additional Purchased Loans, will thereupon at least equal the then aggregate Repurchase Price (excluding Price Differential). 51 4857-1543-7856 1 rchase ri es f l r hased oans a l e e efault ri i g ate d ing) ) e y ediately o ing e epurchase ate r y ast ue r hased oan d ntil t cl ding) e ate hich h ast ue r hased oan r ased y sfer e gent r ro ata i ti n e uyers) f l epurchase ri e ediately ail ble ds; d ) e te si ated y e gent e e ler t r e urrence d ri g e ti ance f vent f efault der cti n .1. . . rice i f rential ayment ue ates. e ler a l ay gent r ro ata i ti n e uyers d ing i e uyer, s plicable, e th) usine s ay f h onth fore e er ination ate, ri e i ferential h pen r nsaction r ed d paid e d f e ding onth, hether r ot h r nsaction ti l pen r nsaction h ent e ate; r i ed at ) l r ed d paid ri e i ferential l r nsactions a l e e e er ination ate, d ) l ri i g i ferential l lated t e efault ri i g ate a l e e and y gent i i ual acity r t e i ti n f e equired uyers. . . djust ents uyer’s rice i f rential sed n ualifyi g alances arti ular uyer d e e ler ay, e e, ree y arate ent j t ents h uyer’s ri e i ferential sed ualifying alances rice i ferential djust ent gr ement”), r vided, ever, at o h j t ents a l ult uyer i i g ore n ould ve en titl d i e ith ect y r nsaction der e s f is gr ement. ri r r cu rently ith e cuti n f y rice i ferential djust ent gr ement, y h uyer a l e gent f e s f y h j t ents h s e inistratively eptable gent). ch uyer a l tify gent f y j t ents e ri e i ferential ade rsuant ri e i ferential djust ent gree ent r ance ith is cti n . . he j t ents tifi d h tice a l e ti e te t ined y gent ut y ent a l ot e ti e ri r e ate h tice i ed). cti n . argin aintenance. . . argin eficit. ) t y e e regate rchase alue f l rchased oans ject l r nsactions r nder s n e regate epurchase ri e l ing ri e i ferential), inus, it out plication, sh sfers r i usly ade e e ler e gent nse r i us argin alls, y, r l h r nsactions argin eficit”), n y tice e e ler argin all”), e gent a l uire e e ler sfer r e unt f e uyers) e gent e se f sh) r e ustodian e se f ditional r hased oans, s fi ed l ), s propriate, er t e e ler’s ti n) sh, diti nal li ible oans ably eptable e gent dditi nal urchased oans”), r bination f sh d ditional r hased oans, at e sh d e regate rchase alue f e r hased oans, i g y h ditional r hased oans, i l on t st ual e n regate epurchase rice l i g ri e i ferential).


 
(b) On any Business Day on which the Purchase Value of the Purchased Loans subject to Transactions exceeds the then outstanding aggregate Repurchase Price (excluding Price Differential) of all Transactions (a “Margin Excess”), so long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or will result therefrom, the Agent shall, upon receipt of a written request from the Seller, remit cash or authorize Custodian to release Purchased Loans, as requested by the Seller, in either case in an amount equal to the lesser of (i) the amount requested by the Seller and (ii) such Margin Excess, subject always to the other limitations of this Agreement. If cash is to be remitted the Agent shall treat the receipt of the written request of the Seller under this Section 6.1(b) as if it were a request for a Transaction. To the extent the Agent remits cash to the Seller, such cash shall be (A) additional Purchase Price with respect to the Transactions, and (B) subject in all respects to the provisions and limitations of this Agreement. Each Buyer shall fund its Pro Rata share of such additional Purchase Price as if the remission of such Margin Excess were the initiation of a Transaction hereunder. 6.2. Margin Call Deadline. If the Agent delivers a Margin Call to the Seller at or before 11:00 a.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on any Business Day, then the Seller shall transfer cash and/or Additional Purchased Loans as provided in Section 6.1 on the same Business Day. If the Agent delivers a Margin Call to the Seller after 11:00 a.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on any Business Day, then the Seller shall transfer cash and/or Additional Purchased Loans by no later than 11:00 a.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on the next following Business Day. 6.3. Application of Cash. Any cash transferred to the Agent (for Pro Rata distribution to the Buyers) pursuant to this Section 6 shall be applied by the Buyers on receipt from the Agent which shall occur on the date received from the Seller or the next Business Day if received after 1:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time). 6.4. Inability to Determine Rates. Subject to Section 6.5, below, if, on or prior to the first day of any applicable tenor for any Transaction, the Agent shall determine (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) or, in the case of clause (b) below, the Required Buyers shall determine (which determinations shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) and notify Agent, that: (a) the Benchmark (or any component thereof) cannot be determined pursuant to the definition thereof, or (b) the Benchmark for any applicable interest period or tenor (collectively, the “Affected Tenor”) does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Buyers of funding or maintaining such Transaction, or (©) the making or funding of any Transaction that accrues Price Differential at or by reference to the Benchmark has become impracticable or not administratively feasible, the Agent will promptly so notify the Seller and each Buyer. Upon notice thereof by the Agent to the Seller, (i) any obligation of the Buyers to make or fund any Transactions that accrue Price Differential at or by reference to such Benchmark, and any right of the Seller to continue 52 4857-1543-7856 ) n y usine s ay hich e rchase alue f e r hased oans ject r nsactions eeds e n t t ing regate epurchase ri e l i g ri e i ferential) f l r nsactions argin xce s”), g s o efault r vent f efault as u red d ti i g r i l sult f , e gent all, on eipt f ri t n uest e e ler, it sh r t orize ustodian se r hased oans, s ested y e e ler, i er se ount ual e er f ) e ount ested y e e ler d i) h argin xcess, ject ays e t er i it ti ns f is gr ement. sh e i ted e gent a l at e eipt f e ri t n uest f e e ler der is cti n .

Transactions that accrue Price Differential at or by reference to such Benchmark, or to convert Prime Referenced Rate Transactions to Transactions that accrue Price Differential at or by reference to such Benchmark, shall be suspended (in each case, to the extent of the affected Transactions or Affected Tenors) until the Agent (with respect to clause (b) of this Section 6.4, at the instruction of the Required Buyers) revokes such notice, (ii) the Seller may revoke any pending request for a borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of any Transactions that accrue Price Differential at or by reference to such Benchmark or, failing that, the Seller will automatically be deemed to have converted any such request into a request for a borrowing of or conversion to Prime Referenced Rate Transactions in the amount specified therein and (iii) any outstanding affected Transactions will automatically be deemed to have been converted into Prime Referenced Rate Transactions. Upon any such conversion, the Seller shall also pay accrued Price Differential on the amount so converted. 6.5. BSBY Unavailability; Successor Rate Determination. (a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Repurchase Documents, but without limiting Section 6.4 above, if: (1) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Daily Adjusting BSBY Rate (or any component thereof, and including, without limitation, because the BSBY Screen Rate is not available or published on a current basis), and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary, as determined by the Agent (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error), or Required Buyers pursuant to, in the case of the Required Buyers, delivery of notice to the Agent with a copy to the Seller that Required Buyers have so determined (which determination likewise shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error); or (ii) the BSBY Administrator or a Governmental Authority having or purporting to have jurisdiction over the Agent or the BSBY Administrator with respect to its publication of BSBY, in each case acting in such capacity, has made a public statement (A) identifying a specific date after which the BSBY Screen Rate shall or will no longer be representative or made available, or used or permitted to be used for determining the interest rate of Dollar-denominated syndicated loans, or shall or will otherwise cease, provided that, at the time of such statement, there is no successor administrator that is satisfactory to the Agent, that will continue to provide the BSBY Screen Rate (or any component thereof) after the latest date on which the BSBY Screen Rate (or any component thereof) is no longer representative or available permanently or indefinitely, or (B) that the BSBY Screen Rate (or any component thereof) fails to comply with the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) Principles for Financial Benchmarks; then, on a date and time determined by the Agent (any such date, a “Replacement Date”), which date shall be on the relevant Price Differential payment date, as applicable, for Price Differential calculated and, solely with respect to clause (ii) above, no later than the latest date determined under clause (ii), the Daily Adjusting BSBY Rate will be replaced 53 4857-1543-7856 3 r nsactions at rue ri e i ferential t r y ce h enchmark, r nvert ri e efer nced ate r nsactions r nsactions at rue ri e i ferential t r y ce h enchmark, a l e ded h se, e tent f e t d r nsactions r fected enors) ntil e gent ith ect se ) f is cti n . , t e ti n f e equired uyers) kes h tice, i) e e ler ay ke y ding uest r r ing f, version r ti uati n f y r nsactions at rue ri e i ferential t r y ce h ench ark r, i at, e e ler i l t atically e ed ve verted y h uest t uest r r ing f r version r e efer nced ate r nsactions e ount cifi d rein d i) y t i g t d r nsactions i l t atically e ed ve en verted t r e efer nced ate ransactions. pon y h version, e e ler a l l y r ed ri e i ferential e ount verted. . .

hereunder and under any Repurchase Document with the first available alternative set forth in the order below for any payment period for Price Differential calculated that can be determined by the Agent, in each case, without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Repurchase Document (such rate, and any subsequent successor rate so determined, the “Successor Rate”): (x) Daily Adjusting Term SOFR Rate, plus the SOFR Adjustment; and (y) Daily Simple SOFR, plus the SOFR Adjustment. In the event that the Successor Rate is Daily Simple SOFR (plus the SOFR Adjustment), all Price Differential payments will be payable on a monthly basis. (b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, (i) if the Agent determines that neither of the alternatives set forth in clauses (x) and (y) above are available on or prior to the Replacement Date or (ii) if events or circumstances comparable to those described in Section 6.5(a)(i) or Section 6.5(a)(ii) have occurred with respect to the Successor Rate then in effect, then in each case, the Agent and the Seller may amend this Agreement solely for purpose of replacing the Daily Adjusting BSBY Rate or any then current Successor Rate in accordance with this Section 6.5 at the end of any relevant Price Differential payment date or payment period for Price Differential calculated, as applicable, with another alternate benchmark rate giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar U.S. dollar denominated syndicated credit facilities for such alternative benchmark rate and, in each case, including any mathematical or other adjustments to such benchmark rate giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar U.S. dollar denominated syndicated credit facilities for such benchmark rate, which adjustment or method for calculating such adjustment shall be published on an information service as selected by the Agent from time to time in its reasonable discretion and may be periodically updated. For the avoidance of doubt, any such proposed rate and adjustments shall constitute a “Successor Rate”. Any such amendment shall become effective at 5:00 p.m. on the fifth Business Day after the Agent shall have posted such proposed amendment to all Buyers and the Seller unless, prior to such time, Buyers comprising the Required Buyers have delivered to the Agent written notice that such Required Buyers object to such amendment. The Agent will promptly (in one or more notices) notify the Seller and each Buyer of the implementation of any Successor Rate. Any Successor Rate shall be applied in a manner consistent with market practice; provided that to the extent such market practice is not administratively feasible for the Agent, such Successor Rate shall be applied in a manner as otherwise reasonably determined by the Agent. In connection with the implementation of any Successor Rate, the Agent will have the right to make Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Repurchase Document, any amendments implementing such Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement; provided that, with respect to any such amendment effected, the Agent shall post each such amendment implementing such Conforming Changes to the Seller and the Buyers reasonably promptly after such amendment becomes effective. 54 4857-1543-7856 r nder d der y epurchase ocument ith e t ail ble ati e t rt e r er l r y ent ri d r ri e i ferential l lated at n e t ined y e gent, h se, it out y endment , r rt er ti n r sent f y t er arty , is gree ent r y t er epurchase ocument h te, d y s quent e sor te t ined, e ce sor ate”): ) aily djusting er FR ate, l s e FR djust ent; d ) aily i ple FR, l s e FR djust ent. e ent at e cce sor ate aily i ple FR l s e FR djustment), l ri e i ferential ents i l e yable onthly asis. ) otwithstanding t i g e ntrary rein, ) e gent t ines at it er f e ti es t rt ses ) d ) ve re ail ble r ri r e epl e ent ate r i) ents r c stances parable se scri ed cti n .

Notwithstanding anything else herein, if at any time any Successor Rate as so determined would otherwise be less than the Applicable Floor, the Successor Rate will be deemed to be the Applicable Floor for the purposes of this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents. 6.6. Illegality. If any Buyer determines (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) that any applicable law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, it would create safety and soundness risks, or it would not be consistent with sound banking practices, for any Buyer or its applicable lending office to make, maintain or fund Transactions whose Price Differential is determined by reference to the BSBY Screen Rate, or to determine or charge interest rates based upon the Daily Adjusting BSBY Rate, then, upon notice thereof by such Buyer to the Seller (through the Agent), any obligation of the Buyers to make Daily Adjusting BSBY Rate Transactions, and any right of the Seller to continue Daily Adjusting BSBY Rate Transactions or to convert Prime Referenced Rate Transactions to Daily Adjusting BSBY Rate Transactions, shall be suspended, and (b) the Seller shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, upon demand from any Buyer (with a copy to the Agent), prepay or, if applicable, convert all Daily Adjusting BSBY Rate Transactions to Prime Referenced Rate Transactions, if all affected Buyers may lawfully continue to maintain such Daily Adjusting BSBY Rate Transactions to such day, or immediately, if any Buyer may not lawfully continue to maintain such Daily Adjusting BSBY Rate Transactions to such day. 6.7. Increased Costs. If any Change in Law shall: (a) impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve (including pursuant to regulations issued from time to time by the Federal Reserve Board for determining the maximum reserve requirements (including any emergency, special, supplemental or other marginal reserve requirement), special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or any similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended or participated in by, any Buyer; (b) subject any Buyer to any tax, duty or other charge with respect to any Transaction or shall change the basis of taxation of payments to any of the Buyers on any Transaction or any other amounts due under this Agreement in respect thereof (except for changes in the rate of tax on the overall net income of any of the Buyers); or (©) impose on any Buyer any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or Transactions made by such Buyer; and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Buyer of making, converting to, continuing or maintaining any Transaction or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Transaction, or to increase the cost to such Buyer, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Buyer hereunder, then, upon request of such Buyer or other Recipient, the Seller will pay to such Buyer, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Buyer, as the case may be, for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered. 55 4857-1543-7856 5 otwithstanding t ing l e erein, t y e y cce sor ate s t ined ould r ise e s n e plicable l or, e cce sor ate i l e ed e e plicable l or r e r oses f is gree ent d e t er epurchase ocuments. . .

6.8. Capital Requirements. If any Buyer determines that any Change in Law affecting such Buyer or any lending office of such Buyer or such Buyer’s holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Buyer’s capital or on the capital of such Buyer’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement, the Commitments of such Buyer its obligations hereunder or the maintaining of any Transactions made by such Buyer to a level below that which such Buyer or such Buyer’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Buyer’s policies and the policies of such Buyer’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity), then from time to time the Seller will pay to such Buyer such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Buyer or such Buyer’s holding company for any such reduction suffered. 6.9. Certificates for Reimbursement. (a) A certificate of a Buyer, prepared in good faith and in reasonable detail, setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Buyer or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in Section 6.7 or 6.8 of this Section, as well as the basis for determining such amounts, and delivered to the Seller, shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Seller shall pay such Buyer the amount shown as due on any such certificate within fifteen (15) Business Days after receipt thereof. (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, Seller shall not be required to pay any increased costs under Sections 6.7 or 6.8 for any period ending prior to the date that is 180 days prior to the making of a Buyer’s initial request for such additional amounts unless the applicable Change in Law or other event resulting in such increased costs is effective retroactively to a date more than 180 days prior to the date of such request, in which case a Buyer’s request for such additional amounts relating to the period more than 180 days prior to the making of the request must be given not more than 180 days after such Buyer becomes aware of the applicable Change in Law or other event resulting in such increased costs. 6.10. Market Valuations for Purchase Values. In the discretion of the Agent or Required Buyers if it or they reasonably determine that market conditions warrant (except that the Agent shall have no obligation to make such determination more frequently than once per day), the Agent may (a) notify Custodian that Agent desires to re-calculate the Purchase Values of all or a portion of the Purchased Loans using the Market Values of such Purchased Loans, which notice shall include the Market Values determined by Agent for such Purchased Loans, and (b) obtain from Custodian an updated Purchased Loan Collateral Activity Summary Report taking into account such Market Values. Section 7. Taxes. 7.1. Payments to be Free of Taxes; Withholding. Any and all payments by the Seller under or in respect of this Agreement or any other Repurchase Documents to which the Seller is a party shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for or on account of, any and all present or future taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings, and all liabilities (including penalties, interest and additions to tax) with respect 56 4857-1543-7856 . . apital equirements. y uyer t ines at y hange ti g h uyer r y i g ffi e f h uyer r h uyer’s l i g pany, y, r i g pital r i ity ir ents, as r ould ve e ct f cing e te f rn h uyer’s pital r e pital f h uyer’s l i g pany, y, s s uence f is greement, e mitments f h uyer li ati ns r nder r e aintaining f y r nsactions ade y h uyer el l at hich h uyer r h uyer’s l i g pany uld ve i ed ut r h hange a i g t si erati n h uyer’s olicies d e olicies f h uyer’s l i g pany ith ect pital uacy d idity), n e e e e ler i l y h uyer h diti nal ount r ounts s i l pensate h uyer r h uyer’s l i g pany r y h cti n ffered. . . ertifi ates f r ei bursement. ) rti i ate f uyer, r ared od it d nable etail, t rt e ount r ounts ce sary pensate h uyer r l i g pany, s e se ay e, s cifi d cti n . r . f is ection, s ell s e asis r t ining h ounts, d l red e e ler, a l e clusive sent anifest rror. he e ler a l ay h uyer e ount n s e y h rti i ate ithin ) usine s ays ft r eipt reof. ) otwithstanding e oing, ever, e ler a l ot e ired y y sed sts der cti ns . r . r y ri d i g ri r e te at 0 ys ri r e aking f uyer’s itial uest r h diti nal ounts le s e pli able hange r t er ent lti g h sed sts ti e cti ely te ore n 0 ys ri r e ate f h uest, hich se uyer’s uest r h diti nal ounts t g e ri d ore n 0 ys ri r e aking f e uest ust e i en ot ore n 0 ys ft r h uyer es are f e pli able hange r t er ent lti g h sed sts. . 0. arket l ati ns f r urchase lues. e i r ti n f e gent r equired uyers r y ably t ine at arket nditi ns a rant cept at e gent a l ve li ati n ake h t ination ore ently n ce er y), e gent ay ) tify ustodian at gent sires l ulate e rchase alues f l r rti n f e r hased oans si g e arket alues f h r hased oans, hich tice a l l de e arket alues t ined y gent r h r hased oans, d ) tain ustodian dated rchased an o lateral ctivity mary eport i g t unt h arket alues. cti n . axes. . . ayments e r e f xes; it holding. ny d l ents y e e ler der r ect f is gree ent r y t er epurchase ocuments hich e e ler arty a l e ade e d l ar f, d it out uction r it holding r r unt f, y d l r sent r t re es, ies, posts, uctions, arges r it holdings, d l iliti s n i g enalties, t rest d diti ns ) ith ect


 
thereto, whether now or hereafter imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any taxation authority or other Governmental Authority (collectively, “Taxes”), unless required by any Legal Requirement. If the Seller shall be required under any applicable Legal Requirement to deduct or withhold any Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable under or in respect of this Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents to the Agent (for the account of the Buyers), (a) the Seller shall make all such deductions and withholdings in respect of Taxes, (b) the Seller shall pay the full amount deducted or withheld in respect of Taxes to the relevant taxation authority or other Governmental Authority in accordance with any applicable Legal Requirement and (c) the sum payable by the Seller shall be increased as may be necessary so that after the Seller has made all required deductions and withholdings (including deductions and withholdings applicable to additional amounts payable under this Section 7) each Buyer receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made in respect of Non-excluded Taxes. For purposes of this Agreement the term “Non- excluded Taxes” means Taxes other than, in the case of any Person, Taxes that are imposed on its overall net income (and franchise taxes imposed in lieu thereof) by the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Person is organized or of its applicable lending office, or any political subdivision thereof. 7.2. Other Taxes. In addition, the Seller hereby agrees to pay any present or future stamp, recording, documentary, excise, property or value-added taxes, or similar taxes, charges or levies (including any interest or penalties arising in connection therewith) that arise from any payment made under or in respect of this Agreement or any other Repurchase Document or from the execution, delivery or registration of, any performance under, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement or any other Repurchase Documents (collectively, “Other Taxes”). 7.3. Taxes Indemnity. The Seller hereby agrees to indemnify the Buyers and the Agent for, and to hold each of them harmless against, the full amount of Non-excluded Taxes and Other Taxes, and the full amount of Taxes (other than Taxes that are imposed on its overall net income (and franchise taxes imposed in lieu thereof) by the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Person is organized or of its applicable lending office, or any political subdivision thereof) of any kind imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section 7 imposed on or paid by the Buyers or the Agent and any liability (including penalties, additions to tax, interest and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto. The indemnity by the Seller provided for in this Section 7.3 shall apply and be made whether or not the Non-excluded Taxes or Other Taxes for which indemnification hereunder is sought have been correctly or legally asserted. Amounts payable by the Seller under the indemnity set forth in this Section 7.3 shall be paid within fifteen (15) days from the date on which the Agent or any Buyer makes written demand therefor. 7.4. Receipt. Within thirty (30) days after the date of any payment of Taxes, the Seller (or any Person making such payment on behalf of the Seller) shall furnish to the Agent for each Buyer’s account a certified copy of the original official receipt evidencing payment thereof. 7.5. Non-Exempt Buyer. For purposes of this Section 7.5, the terms “United States” and “United States person” shall have the meanings specified in Section 7701 of the Internal Revenue Code. Each Buyer (including, for avoidance of doubt, any assignee, successor or participant) that either (x) is not incorporated under the laws of the United States, any State 57 4857-1543-7856 reto, hether r reafter posed, ied, ll cted, it held r ssed y y ti n t ority r t er overnmental uthority ll cti ely, axes”), le s ired y y egal equirement. e e ler a l e ired der y pli able egal equir ent uct r it hold y axes r ect f y yable der r ect f is gree ent r y f e t er epurchase ocuments e gent r e unt f e uyers), ) e e ler a l ake l h uctions d it holdings ect f axes, ) e e ler a l ay e l ount ucted r it held ect f axes e ant ti n t ority r t er overnmental uthority r ance ith y li able egal equir ent d ) e yable y e e ler a l e sed s ay e ce sary at t r e e ler as ade l ired uctions d it holdings n i g uctions d it holdings pli able diti nal ounts yable der is cti n ) h uyer i es ount ual e ould ve i ed d h uctions r it holdings en ade ect f on-excluded axes. or r oses f is gree ent e on- l ed xes” eans axes t er n, e se f y erson, axes at re posed erall et e d hise es posed reof) y e ri i ti n der e s f hich h ers n nized r f pli able i g ffice, r y olitical divisi n reof. . . ther xes. dition, e e ler r y rees y y r sent r t re p, rding, u entary, cise, r perty r l - ded es, r ilar es, arges r ies i g y t rest r nalties g nection ith) at i e y ent ade der r ect f is gree ent r y t er epurchase ocument r e ecution, li ery r istr ti n f, y r ance der, r r ise ith ect , is gree ent r y t er epurchase ocuments ll cti ely, ther xes”). . . xes emnity. he e ler r y rees nify e uyers d e gent r, d ld h f r le s ainst, e l ount f on-excluded axes d ther axes, d e l ount f axes t er n axes at re posed erall et e d hise es posed reof) y e ri i ti n der e s f hich h ers n nized r f pli able i g ffice, r y olitical divisi n reof) f y i d posed y y ri icti n ounts yable der is cti n posed r aid y e uyers r e gent d y ilit n i g enalties, diti ns , t rest d enses) g r ith ect reto. he nity y e e ler i ed r is cti n . a l ply d e ade hether r ot e on-excluded axes r ther axes r hich nification r nder ght ve en rrectly r a ly erted. mounts yable y e e ler der e nity t rt is cti n . a l e aid ithin ) ys e te hich e gent r y uyer akes ri t n and refor. . . eceipt. ithin irt ) ys t r e te f y ent f axes, e e ler r y rs n aking h ent half f e e ler) a l ish e gent r h uyer’s unt rti i y f e ri i al fficial eipt i cing ent reof. . .

this Section 7.5 to be made in the sole discretion of the Seller, provided that each such Buyer shall be provided an opportunity to establish such compliance as reasonable; or ® in the case of a Non-Exempt Buyer that is disregarded for U.S. federal income tax purposes, the document that would be required by this Section 7.5 with respect to its Beneficial Owner if such Beneficial Owner were a Buyer; or (2) in the case of a Non-Exempt Buyer that (i) is not a United States person and (ii) is acting in the capacity as an “intermediary” (as defined in U.S. Treasury regulations), (A)(1) a U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-8IMY (or any successor form thereto) (including all required documents and attachments) and (2) a Corporation Tax Treatment Certificate, and (B) if the intermediary is a “non-qualified intermediary” (as defined in U.S. Treasury regulations), from each person upon whose behalf the “non- qualified intermediary” is acting the documents that would be required by this Section 7.5 with respect to each such person if each such person were a Buyer. If the forms referred to in this Section 7.5 that are provided by a Buyer at the time such Buyer first becomes a party to this Agreement, a successor to a Buyer or, with respect to a permitted assignment of or a grant of a participation in the interests of a Buyer hereunder, the effective date thereof, indicate a United States interest withholding tax rate in excess of zero, withholding tax at such rate shall be treated as Taxes other than Non-excluded Taxes (“Excluded Taxes”) and shall not qualify as Non-Excluded Taxes unless and until such Buyer provides the appropriate form certifying that a lesser rate applies, whereupon withholding tax at such lesser rate shall be considered Excluded Taxes solely for the periods governed by such form. If, however, on the date a Person becomes an assignee, successor or participant to this Agreement, the Buyer transferor was entitled to indemnification or additional amounts under this Section 7, then the Buyer assignee, successor or participant shall be entitled to indemnification or additional amounts to the extent (and only to the extent), that the Buyer transferor was entitled to such indemnification or additional amounts for Non-excluded Taxes, and the Buyer assignee, successor or participant shall be entitled to additional indemnification or additional amounts for any other or additional Non-excluded Taxes. 7.6. If Buyer Fails to Provide Form. For any period with respect to which a Buyer required to do so has failed to provide the Seller with the appropriate form, certificate or other document described in Section 7.5 (other than (a) if such failure is due to a change in any applicable Legal Requirement, or in the interpretation or application thereof, occurring after the date on which a form, certificate or other document originally was required to be provided, (b) if such form, certificate or other document otherwise is not required under Section 7.5 or (¢) if it is legally inadvisable or otherwise commercially disadvantageous for such Buyer to deliver such form, certificate or other document), such Buyer shall not be entitled to indemnification or additional amounts under Section 7.2 or Section 7.3 with respect to Non-excluded Taxes imposed by the United States by reason of such failure; provided that should a Buyer become subject to Non-excluded Taxes because of its failure to deliver a form, certificate or other document required hereunder, the Seller shall take such steps as such Buyer shall reasonably request, to assist such Buyer in recovering such Non-excluded Taxes. 59 4857-1543-7856 is cti n . e ade e le i r ti n f e e ler, i ed at h h uyer a l e i ed portunity t lish h pliance s nable; r (f) e se f on- xempt uyer at r ed r .S. eral n e rposes, e ent at ould e ired y is cti n . ith ect eneficial ner h eneficial wner ere uyer; r g) e se f on- xempt uyer at ) ot nited t tes rs n d i) ti g e acity s ediary” s fi ed .S. r asury ulations), )(1) .S. t r al evenue rvice r -8I Y r y ce sor reto) n i g l ired ents d a ents) d ) orporation ax r t ent ertificate, d ) e ediary n-qualified ediary” s fi ed .S. r asury ulations), h rs n on hose half e on- alifi d e ediary” ti g e ents at ould e ired is cti n . ith ect h h rs n h h rs n ere uyer. e s rr d is cti n . at re i ed y uyer t e e h uyer t es arty is greement, ce sor uyer r, ith ect r i ted ent f r r nt f rti i ati n e rests f uyer r under, e ti e ate reof, i ate nited t tes t rest it holding te ce s f ro, it holding t h te a l e t d s axes t er n on-excluded axes cl ed xes”) d a l ot alify s on-Excluded axes le s d ntil h uyer r vides e ropriate rt i g at er te plies, hereupon it olding t h er te a l e si ered cl ded axes l ly r e ri ds erned y h . , ever, e te ers n es i n e, ce sor r arti i ant is gr ement, e uyer f ror as titl nification r diti nal ounts der is cti n , n e uyer i n e, ce sor r arti i ant a l e titl nification r diti nal ounts e tent d ly e tent), at e uyer feror as titl d h nification r diti nal ounts r on-excluded axes, d e uyer i n e, ce sor r rti i ant a l e titl diti nal nification r diti nal ounts r y t er r diti nal on-excluded axes. . . uyer ails rovide orm. or y ri d ith ect hich uyer ired as i r vide e e ler ith e ropriate , rti i ate r t er ent scri ed cti n . t er n ) h i re e ge y pli able egal equirement, r e r tati n r pli ati n reof, cu ri g ft r e te hich , rti i ate r t er ent ri i a ly as ired e r vided, ) h , rti i ate r t er ent r ise ot ired der cti n . r c) a ly visable r r ise mercially t eous r h uyer li er h , rti i ate r t er cument), h uyer a l ot e titl nification r diti nal ounts der cti n . r cti n . ith ect on-excluded axes posed y e nited t tes y n f h il re; r i ed at uld uyer e ject on-excluded axes cause f i re li er , rti i ate r t er ent ired r under, e e ler a l e h s s h uyer a l ably uest, sist h uyer vering h on-excluded axes.


 
7.7. Refunds. If the Agent or any Buyer, in its sole opinion, determines that it has finally and irrevocably received or been granted a refund in respect of any Taxes paid as to which indemnification has been paid by the Seller pursuant to this Section, it shall promptly remit such refund, net of all reasonable out of pocket costs and expenses, to the Seller; provided, that the Seller agrees to promptly return any such refund to the Agent or such Buyer, as applicable, if such person is required to repay such refund to the relevant taxing authority. Nothing contained herein shall impose an obligation on the Agent or any Buyer to apply for any such refund. 7.8. Survival. Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of the Seller hereunder, the agreements and obligations of the Seller contained in this Section 7 shall survive the termination of this Agreement. Nothing contained in this Section 7 shall require the Buyer to make available any of its tax returns or any other information that it deems to be confidential or proprietary. Section 8. Income and Escrow Payments; Control. 8.1. Income and Escrow Payments. Notwithstanding that the Buyers, the Agent and the Seller intend that the Transactions be sales to the Buyers of the Purchased Loans, where a particular Transaction’s term extends over an Income payment date on the Purchased Loans subject to that Transaction, all payments and distributions, whether in cash or in kind, made on or with respect to the Purchased Loans shall be paid directly to the Seller or its designee by the relevant Customer, and the Agent (and the Buyers) shall have no obligation to collect or apply any Income to prevent or reduce any Margin Deficit, unless the Seller (a) arranges for such Income to be paid to the Agent (for Pro Rata distribution to the Buyers), (b) requests that the Agent apply such Income when received against the Seller’s Margin Deficit(s) and (c) concurrently transfers to the Agent either (i) cash or (ii) at the Agent’s option and with the Agent’s written approval, Additional Purchased Loans, sufficient to eliminate such Margin Deficit. Amounts paid to the Seller by the relevant Customer shall be deposited by the Seller into the Income Account within two (2) Business Days of receipt by the Seller and, as to amounts so paid to the Seller for escrow payments, into the Escrow Account. The Income Account and the Escrow Account shall be maintained by the Seller with Comerica Bank and shall be subject to the control of the Agent. The Income Account and Escrow Account may be interest bearing accounts if allowed or required by applicable law. At all times, other than during the existence of an Event of Default, the Seller may have full use of all Income and amounts on deposit in the Income Account, subject to the provisions of Section 8.2. 8.2. Income and Escrow Accounts. Other than during the existence of an Event of Default and so long as the Seller is also the Servicer, the Seller shall make payments from the Escrow Account of all appropriate amounts payable with respect to each Purchased Loan for taxes, insurance and other purposes for which the funds are paid into the Escrow Account. Subject to Section 8.3, amounts on deposit in the Income Account shall be used by the Seller to pay its fees as Servicer while it serves in such capacity, and may be used to pay to the Agent amounts due under this Agreement for Margin Deficit or Price Differential and for any other lawful purpose. 60 4857-1543-7856 . . efunds. e gent r y uyer, le inion, t ines at as l d rre ably i ed r en ted d ect f y axes aid s hich nification as en aid y e e ler rsuant is ction, a l ptly it h nd, et f l nable t f cket sts d enses, e e ler; r vided, at e e ler rees ptly t rn y h d e gent r h uyer, s plicable, h rs n ired ay h d e ant i g t ority. othing t i ed rein a l pose li ati n e gent r y uyer ply r y h nd. . . rvival. ithout r j dice e r ival f y t er ent f e e ler r under, e ents d li ati ns f e e ler t i ed is cti n a l r i e e inati n f is gr ement. othing t i ed is cti n a l uire e uyer ake ail ble y f rns r y t er ation at s e nfidential r r prietary. cti n . e d s y ents; ontrol. . . e d scr ayments. otwithstanding at e uyers, e gent d e e ler d at e r nsactions e l s e uyers f e r hased oans, here arti ular r nsaction’s t ds er e ent te e r hased oans ject at ransaction, l ents d i t ti ns, hether sh r i d, ade r ith ect e r hased oans a l e aid i ctly e e ler r si e y e ant ustomer, d e gent d e uyers) a l ve o li ati n lect r ply y e r ent r ce y argin eficit, le s e e ler ) ges r h e e aid e gent r ro ata i ti n e uyers), ) uests at e gent ply h e hen i ed ainst e e ler’s argin eficit(s) d ) cu rently sfers e gent er ) sh r i) t e gent’s ti n d ith e gent’s ri t n proval, ditional r hased oans, ffi i nt inate h argin eficit. mounts aid e e ler y e ant ust er a l e osited y e e ler t e e count ithin o ) usine s ays f eipt y e e ler d, s ounts aid e e ler r ents, t e s r count. he e count d e s r count a l e aintai ed y e e ler ith omerica ank d a l e ject e ntrol f e gent. he e count d s r count ay e t rest ari g unts o ed r ired y pli able . t l es, t er n ri g e i t ce f vent f efault, e e ler ay ve l se f l e d ounts posit e e count, ject e r visi ns f cti n . . . . e d scr counts. ther n ri g e i t ce f vent f efault d g s e e ler l e rvicer, e e ler a l ake ents e s r count f l ropriate ounts yable ith ect h r hased oan r es, r ce d t er r oses r hich e ds re aid t e s r count. bject cti n . , ounts posit e e count a l e sed y e e ler y s s rvicer hile es h acity, d ay e ed ay e gent ounts e der is gree ent r argin eficit r ri e i ferential d r y t er ful rpose.


 
8.3. Income and Escrow Accounts after Default. Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, the Seller shall have no right to direct withdrawal or application of funds in the Income Account and the Escrow Account unless authorized to do so in writing by the Agent. The Agent may cause all amounts on deposit in the Income Account to be paid to it or its designee for application as provided in Section 18.4. The Agent or its designee shall direct payments from the Escrow Account for the purposes for which such funds are deposited into the Escrow Account and shall comply with all Legal Requirements applicable to the operation of the Income Account and the Escrow Account, including any Agency guidelines with respect thereto. Section 9. Facility Fee; Agent’s Fee. 9.1. Facility Fee. The Seller agrees to pay to the Agent (for Pro Rata distribution to the Buyers) a facility fee (the “Facility Fee”) on the Maximum Aggregate Commitment at a rate of ten hundredths of one percent (0.10%) per annum, computed on the actual number of days elapsed using a year of 360 days. The Facility Fee shall be payable in arrears within ten (10) days after the end of each calendar quarter, commencing with the quarter ending September 30, 2022, and on the Termination Date. The calculation by Agent of the Amount of the Facility Fee shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error. Such fee shall be deemed fully earned upon receipt by Agent and shall not be refundable for any reason. 9.2. Agent’s Fees. The Seller agrees to pay to the Agent the fees set forth in the Fee Letter. Section 10. Security Interest; License. 10.1. Intent of the Parties. The parties intend that all Transactions hereunder be sales and purchases (other than for accounting and tax purposes) and not loans; nonetheless, as a security agreement under the UCC and as a security agreement or other arrangement or other credit enhancement related to this Agreement and transactions hereunder as provided for in Section 101(47) (A)(v) of the Bankruptcy Code, the Seller hereby pledges to the Agent for the benefit of the Buyers as security for the performance by the Seller of the Obligations and hereby grants, assigns and pledges to the Agent for the benefit of the Buyers a fully perfected first priority security interest in all of the following, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, wherever located (the “Collateral ”): (a) Purchased Loans: All of the Purchased Loans and all Income and proceeds from the Purchased Loans, including all of the property, rights and other items described in the definition of “Mortgage Loan” in Section 1.2 for each such Purchased Loan and all rights to have, receive and retain the return or refund of funds transferred from any account with the Agent to any title company, title agent, escrow agent or other Person for the purpose of originating or funding a Mortgage Loan that did not close (for any reason) and that would have been a Purchased Loan if it had closed (all funds so transferred continuously remain the property of the Agent and the Buyers until disbursed by such agent to or for the account of the related Customer upon the closing of his or her Mortgage Loan); 61 4857-1543-7856 1 . . e d scr ccounts ft r efault. pon e urrence d ri g e ti uati n f vent f efault, e e ler a l ve o t i ct it ra al r pli ati n f ds e e count d e s r count le s t ori ed riti g y e gent. he gent ay se l ounts posit e e count e aid r si n e r pli ati n s i ed cti n .4. he gent r si e a l i ct ents e s r count r e r oses r hich h ds re osited t e s r count d a l ply ith l egal equire ents pli able e erati n f e e count d e s r count, i g y gency i elines ith ect reto. cti n . acility e; gent’s e. . . acility e. he e ler rees y e gent r ro ata i ti n e uyers) ilit e e acility e”) e axi um gregate mitment t te f ndredths f e rcent ) er um, puted e t al ber f ys sed si g ar f 0 ays. he acility ee a l e yable ars ithin ) ys ft r e d f h l dar arter, mencing ith e arter i g t ber , 2, d e er ination ate. he l lati n y gent f e ount f e acility ee a l e clusive d i i g sent anifest rror. ch e a l e ed ll ed on eipt y gent d a l ot e dable r y son. . . gent’s es. he e ler rees ay e gent e s t rt e ee e ter. cti n . curity terest; icense. .1. t nt f e arties. he arties d at l r nsactions r nder e l s d rchases t er n r unting d rposes) d ot ns; netheless, s urity ent der e C d s urity ent r t er a ent r t er dit ce ent l t d is gree ent d cti ns r nder s i ed r cti n (47) )(v) f e ankruptcy ode, e e ler r y l ges e gent r e enefit f e uyers s urity r e r ance y e e ler f e bligations d r y r nts, i ns d l ges e gent r e nefit f e uyers ll rf cted t ri rity urity t rest l f e ing, hether ned r reafter uired, herever t d e “ o lateral”): ) urchased oans: l f e r hased oans d l e d ceeds e r hased oans, i g l f e r perty, ts d t er te s scri ed e fi iti n f ortgage an” cti n . r h h r hased oan d l ts ve, i e d t i e rn r d f ds f rr d y unt ith e gent y pany, ent, ent r t er erson r e r ose f i ati g r ing ortgage oan at i ot se r y s n) d at ould ve en r hased oan d d l ds f rr d ti ously ain e r perty f e gent d e uyers ntil rsed y h ent r r e unt f e t d ust er on e i g f is r er ortgage oan);

10.2. Remedies. If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Agent shall have the following rights and remedies (in addition to the other rights and remedies under in this Agreement or any other Repurchase Document or applicable law): (a) all of the rights and remedies of a secured party under the UCC (whether or not the UCC applies to the affected Collateral) and the Agent may also, without previous demand or notice except as specified herein or required by applicable law, sell, lease or otherwise dispose of the Collateral, or any part thereof, in one or more parcels at public or private sale or sales, at the Agent’s offices or elsewhere, for cash, on credit or for future delivery, and upon such other terms as the Agent may, in its reasonable discretion, deem commercially reasonable or otherwise as may be permitted by law; collect, receive or take possession of the Collateral or any part thereof, and the Agent and, subject to the terms of this Agreement, each of the Buyers shall have the right at any public sale or sales, and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, at any private sale or sales, to bid (which bid may be, in whole or in part, in the form of cancellation of indebtedness) and become a purchaser of the Collateral or any part thereof free of any right of redemption on the part of the Seller, which right of redemption is hereby expressly waived and released by the Seller to the extent permitted by applicable law. The Seller agrees that, in the event that applicable law requires such notice, the Agent shall not be obligated to give more than ten (10) days prior written notice of the time and place of any public sale or of the time after which any private sale may take place and that such notice shall constitute reasonable notice of such matters. The Agent shall not be obligated to make any sale of Collateral if, in the exercise of its reasonable discretion, it shall determine not to do so, regardless of the fact that notice of sale of Collateral may have been given. On any sale of the Collateral, the Agent is hereby authorized to comply with any limitation or restriction with which compliance is necessary (based on a reasoned opinion of the Agent’s counsel) in order to avoid any violation of applicable law or in order to obtain any required approval of the purchaser or purchasers by any applicable Governmental Authority. The Agent shall apply the proceeds from the sale of the Collateral hereunder against the Obligations as set forth in Section 18.4; (b) The Agent may cause any or all of the Collateral held by it to be transferred into the name of the Agent or the name or names of the Agent’s nominee or nominees. (©) The Agent may exercise any and all rights and remedies of the Seller under or in respect of the Collateral, including, without limitation, any and all rights of the Seller to demand or otherwise require payment of any amount under, or performance of any provision of any of the Collateral. (d) The Agent may direct any parties liable for any payment under any of the Collateral to make payment of any and all monies due and to become due thereunder directly to the Agent or as the Agent shall direct. 64 4857-1543-7856 .2. emedies. vent f efault a l ve u red d e nti uing, e gent a l ve e o ing ts d edies diti n e t er ts d edies der is gree ent r y t er epurchase ocument r pli able ): ) l f e ts d edies f red arty der e C hether r ot e C plies e t d o lateral) d e gent ay l o, it out r i us and r tice cept s cifi d rein r ired y li able , l, se r r ise i ose f e ollateral, r y art reof, e r ore arcels t blic r ri ate le r les, t e gent’s ffi es r here, r sh, dit r r t re li ery, d on h t er s s e gent ay, nable i retion, mercially able r r ise s ay e r i ted y ; lect, i e r e sse sion f e o lateral r y art reof, d e gent d, ject e s f is gr ement, h f e uyers a l ve e ht t y blic le r les, d, e tent r i ted y li able , t y ri ate le r les, i hich i ay e, hole r art, e f ce lati n f t dne s) d e rchaser f e o lateral r y art f e f y t f ption e art f e e ler, hich t f ption r y re sly aived d ed y e e ler e tent r i ted y pli able . he e ler rees at, e ent at pli able uires h tice, e gent a l ot e li ated i e ore n ) ys ri r ri t n tice f e e d l ce f y blic le r f e e t r hich y ri ate le ay e l ce d at h tice a l nstitute nable tice f h atters. he gent a l ot e li ated ake y le f o lateral , e ercise f nable i reti n, a l t ine ot , ardle s f e ct at tice f le f o lateral ay ve en i en. n y le f e ollateral, e gent r y t ori ed ply ith y i it ti n r t t n ith hich pliance ce sary ed ed i i n f e gent’s unsel) r er oid y i l ti n f pli able r r er tain y uired roval f e rchaser r rchasers y y pli able overnmental uthority. he gent a l ply e r ceeds e le f e o lateral r nder ainst e bligations s t rt cti n .4; ) he gent ay se y r l f e o lateral ld y e f rr d t e e f e gent r e e r es f e gent’s in e r in es. c) he gent ay ercise y d l ts d edies f e e ler der r ect f e ollateral, l ding, it out itati n, y d l ts f e e ler and r r ise uire ent f y ount der, r ance f y r visi n f y f e ollateral. ) he gent ay i ct y arties le r y ent der y f e o lateral ake ent f y d l onies e d e e der i ctly e gent r s e gent a l irect.


 
Section 11. Substitution. 11.1. Seller May Substitute Other Mortgage Loans with Notice to and Approval of Agent. So long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and no Margin Deficit exists or occurs as a consequence thereof, the Seller may request to substitute Mortgage Loans for any substantially similar Purchased Loans by giving notice to the Agent and Custodian on or before 12:00 noon (Detroit, Michigan time) on a Business Day, and delivering to the Custodian the Mortgage Loan Transmission File with respect to the Mortgage Loans to be substituted and other documents required to be delivered in connection with any new Transaction. Upon receipt of such request, and an updated Eligible Loans Report from the Custodian that takes into account the requested substitution of Mortgage Loans, the Agent may elect in its sole discretion, by 5:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on the Business Day notice is received or by 5:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on the next Business Day if notice is given after 12:00 noon (Detroit, Michigan time), to accept such substitution. If such substitution is accepted by the Agent, such substitution shall be made by the Seller’s transfer to the Agent of such other Mortgage Loans on a servicing released basis and the Agent’s transfer to the Seller of the Purchased Loans to be replaced, and after such substitution, the substituted Mortgage Loans shall be deemed to be Purchased Loans. If the Agent elects not to accept such substitution, the Seller shall offer the Agent and the Buyers the right to terminate the related Transaction. If Agent, in its sole discretion, accepts such offer, then the Transaction shall be terminated as if a Disqualifier had occurred with respect to such Transaction in accordance with Section 3.3(b). 11.2. Payment to Accompany Substitution. If a substitution of Mortgage Loans or termination of a Transaction occur under this Section 11, the Seller shall be obligated to pay to the Agent (for Pro Rata distribution to the Buyers) by the close of the Business Day on the date of such substitution or termination, as the case may be, an amount equal to the sum of (a) actual cost (including all customary fees, expenses and commissions) to the Agent and the Buyers of (i) entering into replacement Transactions; (ii) entering into or terminating hedge transactions and/or (iii) terminating Transactions or substituting securities in like transactions with third parties in connection with or as a result of such substitution or termination, and (b) to the extent the Agent determines not to enter into replacement Transactions, the loss incurred by the Agent and the Buyers directly arising or resulting from such substitution or termination. The foregoing amounts shall be solely determined and calculated by the Agent and the applicable Buyers in good faith. Section 12. Payment and Transfer. 12.1. Immediately Available Funds; Notice to Custodian. All transfers of funds hereunder shall be in immediately available funds. All Mortgage Loans transferred by one party hereto to any other party shall be transferred by notice to the Custodian to the effect that the Custodian is then holding for the benefit of the transferee the related documents and assignment forms delivered to it under the Custody Agreement. 12.2. Payments to the Agent. Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Agreement, all payments required by this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents to be made to the Agent shall be paid to the Agent by no later than 1:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on the day when due (funds received after 1:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) shall be 65 4857-1543-7856 5 cti n . bstitution. .1. e ler ay bstitute ther ortgage oans ith otice d pproval f gent. o g s o vent f efault as u red d ti ing d o argin eficit ists r curs s s uence reof, e e ler ay uest stitute ortgage oans r y stantia ly ilar r hased oans y i i g tice e gent d ustodian r fore : 0 on etroit, ichigan e) usine s ay, d li eri g e ustodian e ortgage oan r s i sion ile ith ect e ortgage oans e stit t d d t er ents ired e l red nection ith y ransaction. pon eipt f h uest, d dated li ible oans eport e ustodian at es t unt e ested stit ti n f ortgage oans, e gent ay l ct le i retion, y : 0 . . etroit, ichigan e) e usine s ay tice i ed r y : 0 . . etroit, ichigan e) e ext usine s ay tice i en t r : 0 on etroit, ichigan e), ept h stitution. h stit ti n pted y e gent, h stit ti n a l e ade y e e ler’s sfer e gent f h t er ortgage oans i i g ed asis d e gent’s sfer e e ler f e r hased oans e l ced, d t r h stit tion, e stit t d ortgage oans a l e ed e rchased oans. e gent cts ot ept h stit tion, e e ler a l ffer e gent d e uyers e t inate e t d ransaction. gent, le i reti n, epts h ffer, n e r nsaction a l e i ated s isqualifier d u red ith ect h r nsaction r ance ith cti n .

conclusively deemed to have been paid by the Seller on the next following Business Day unless the Agent shall agree otherwise) and without set-off, counterclaim or deduction, in lawful money of the United States of America in immediately available funds as provided in Section 24.4, or at such other place as the Agent shall designate from time to time. Whenever any payment to be made under this Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents shall be stated to be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the due date for that payment shall be automatically extended to the next day that is a Business Day, and (if applicable) Price Differential at the applicable rate (determined in accordance with this Agreement) shall continue to accrue during the period of such extension. 12.3. If Payment Not Made When Due. If and to the extent any payment is not made when due under this Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents, the Seller authorizes the Agent and each Buyer (for the Pro Rata account and benefit of all of the Buyers) then or at any time thereafter to charge any amounts so due and unpaid against any or all of the Seller’s accounts with the Agent or any of the Buyers; provided that such right to charge the Seller’s accounts shall not apply to any escrow, trust or other deposit accounts designated as being held by the Seller on behalf of third party owners of the escrowed funds other than Affiliates of the Seller. The Agent and each Buyer agrees to use reasonable efforts to promptly advise the Seller of any charge made pursuant to this Section 12.3, but the failure to do so will not affect the validity or collectability of such charge. Neither the Agent nor any Buyer shall have any obligation to charge any Seller account, merely the right to do so. 12.4. Payments Valid and Effective. Each payment received by the Agent in accordance with this Agreement is valid and effective to satisfy and discharge the Seller’s liability under the Repurchase Documents to the extent of the payment. 12.5. Pro Rata Distribution of Payments. The Agent shall distribute all payments of Repurchase Price (whether voluntary or involuntary and from whatever source) received to the Buyers Pro Rata with their respective ownership interests in the Purchased Loans on the next Swing Line Refunding Due Date. The distribution from the Agent to each Buyer shall be made by the Agent’s initiating a federal funds wire transfer by 3:00 p.m. (Detroit, Michigan time) on such Swing Line Refunding Due Date, in immediately available funds directly to such Buyer or to such account at another financial institution as is designated from time to time by such Buyer in writing. Section 13. Segregation of Documents Relating to Purchased Loans. All documents relating to Purchased Loans in the possession of the Seller or its designee (including its agent, or any subservicer) shall be segregated from other documents and securities in its or its designee’s possession and shall be identified as being owned by the Buyers and held by the Agent on behalf of the Buyers (which shall be referenced in the relevant books and records as “Comerica Bank, Agent”) and subject to this Agreement. Segregation may be accomplished by appropriate identification of ownership on the books and records of the holder of such documents, including MERS, a documents custodian, a financial or securities intermediary, or a clearing corporation. All of the Seller’s interest in the Purchased Loans shall pass to the Buyers on the Purchase Date and nothing in this Agreement shall preclude the Agent and the Buyers, in each case with the Buyers’ consent, from engaging with others in repurchase 66 4857-1543-7856 clusively ed ve en aid y e e ler e ext o i g usine s ay le s e gent a l ree t r ise) d it out t- f, ntercl i r duction, ful oney f e nited t tes f merica ediately ail ble ds s i ed cti n .4, r t h t er l ce s e gent a l si nate e e. henever y ent e ade der is gree ent r y f e t er epurchase ocuments a l e t e e y at ot usine s ay, e e te r at ent a l e t atically t ed e xt y at usine s ay, d pli able) ri e i ferential t e pli able te i ed r ance ith is greement) a l ti ue rue ri g e ri d f h t nsion. .3. ayment ot ade hen ue. d e tent y ent ot ade hen e der is gree ent r y f e t er epurchase ocuments, e e ler t orizes e gent d h uyer r e ro ata unt d enefit f l f e uyers) n r t y e reafter arge y ounts e d paid ainst y r l f e e ler’s unts ith e gent r y f e uyers; r i ed at h t arge e e ler’s unts a l ot ply y r , st r t er posit unts si ated s i g eld y e e ler half f i arty ners f e ed ds t er n filiates f e e ler. he gent d h uyer rees se nable rts ptly vise e e ler f y arge ade rsuant is cti n .3, ut e i re i l ot ct e ali ity r ll ctability f h arge. either e gent r y uyer a l ve y li ati n arge y e ler ount, erely e t . .4. ayments li d fective. ach ent i ed y e gent r ance ith is gree ent ali d cti e ti f d arge e e ler’s ilit der e epurchase ocuments e tent f e ent. .5. ro ata istri uti n f ayments. he gent a l i t te l ents f epurchase ri e hether l ntary r l ntary d hatever rce) i ed e uyers ro ata ith eir ective nership t rests e r hased oans e xt ing i e efunding ue ate. he i ti n e gent h uyer a l e ade y e gent’s g eral ds ire sfer y : 0 . . etroit, ichigan e) h ing i e ef nding ue ate, ediately ail ble ds i ctly h uyer r h unt t other cial t t n s si ated e e y h uyer riting. cti n . regation f ocuments elati g rchased oans. l ents l t g r hased oans e sse sion f e e ler r si e i g ent, r y servicer) a l e r ated t er ents d urities r si n e’s sse sion d a l e tifi d s i g ned y e uyers d eld y e gent half f e uyers hich a l e ced e ant oks d rds s omerica ank, gent”) d ject is gr ement. regation ay e plished y ropriate tifi ti n f nership e oks d rds f e lder f h uments, i g ERS, ents st dian, cial r urities ediary, r ri g r oration. l f e e ler’s t rest e r hased oans a l a s e uyers e rchase ate d t i g is gree ent a l r l de e gent d e uyers, h se ith e uyers’ nsent, aging ith t ers r hase

The Seller has furnished to the Agent a true and complete copy of its Organizational Documents as in effect as of the date of this Agreement, including all amendments thereto, and agrees to furnish to the Agent a true and complete copy of any amendment adopted after the Effective Date promptly after it is adopted. The Seller and its Subsidiaries each has the requisite limited liability company or corporate power and authority to own its properties and to carry on its business as currently conducted and each is duly qualified to do business as a foreign corporation or a limited liability company and in good standing in each jurisdiction in which the ownership of its property or the transaction of its business makes such qualification necessary, except in jurisdictions, if any, where a failure to be qualified, licensed or in good standing could not reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on any of the Central Elements in respect of the Seller. The Seller does not have any Subsidiaries as of the Effective Date except as set forth on Exhibit C or as have been disclosed by the Seller to the Agent in writing after the Effective Date.

or Subservicer (other than the Seller) for payment of any servicing fees due and payable as of such date; seventh to the net obligations of the Seller under any Hedge Agreements related to the Purchased Loans; eighth to the obligations of the Seller under any Products; and ninth any remaining proceeds to the Seller. 18.5. Liability for Expenses and Damages. The Seller shall be liable to the Buyers for (a) the amount of all reasonable out-of-pocket legal or other expenses incurred by the Buyers in connection with or as a result of an Event of Default, including such legal and other expenses of in-house or outside counsel, (b) damages in an amount equal to the reasonable out-of-pocket cost (including all fees, expenses and commissions) of entering into replacement transactions and entering into or terminating hedge transactions in connection with or as a result of an Event of Default and (c) any other reasonable loss, damage, out-of-pocket cost or expense directly arising or resulting from the occurrence of an Event of Default in respect of a defaulting party. 18.6. Liability for Interest. To the extent permitted by applicable law, the Seller shall be liable to the Buyers for interest on any amounts owing by the Seller hereunder, from the date the Seller becomes liable for such amounts hereunder until such amounts are (a) paid in full by the Seller or (b) satisfied in full by the exercise of the Buyers’ rights hereunder. Interest on any sum payable by the Seller under this Section 18.6 shall be at a rate equal to the greater of the Pricing Rate for the relevant Transaction or the Prime Referenced Rate. 18.7. Other Rights. In addition to its rights hereunder, the Buyers shall have any rights otherwise available to them under any other agreement or applicable law. 18.8. Seller’s Repurchase Rights. For avoidance of doubt, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Seller may repurchase Purchased Loans, on a servicing released basis, and resell such Purchased Loans; provided that upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Seller may repurchase Purchased Loans by payment of the Repurchase Price therefor only upon approval of the Agent in its discretion exercised in accordance with the provisions of Section 22. 18.9. Sale of Purchased Loans. The parties acknowledge and agree that (a) the Purchased Loans subject to any Transaction hereunder are instruments traded in a recognized market, (b) in the absence of a generally recognized source for prices or bid or offer quotations for any Purchased Loans, the Agent may establish the source therefor, (c) all prices, bids and offers shall be determined together with accrued Income (except to the extent contrary to market practice with respect to the relevant Purchased Loans) and (d) in soliciting price, bid and offer quotations for any Purchased Loan, it is reasonable for the Agent to use only the information provided by the Seller pursuant to Section 16.4(d). The parties further recognize that it may not be possible to purchase or sell all of the Purchased Loans on a particular Business Day, or in a transaction with the same purchaser, or in the same manner because the market for such Purchased Loans may not be liquid at such time. In view of the nature of the Purchased Loans, the parties agree that liquidation of a Transaction or the underlying Purchased Loans does not require a public purchase or sale and that a good faith private purchase or sale shall be deemed to have been made in a commercially reasonable manner. Accordingly, the Agent may elect the time and manner of liquidating any Purchased Loan and nothing contained herein shall obligate the Agent to liquidate any Purchased Loan on the occurrence of an Event of Default or to 94 4857-1543-7856 r bservicer t er n e e ler) r ent f y i i g s e d yable s f h ate; enth e et li ati ns f e e ler der y edge greements t d e r hased oans; th e li ati ns f e e ler der y r ducts; d i th y aining ceeds e e ler. .5. iability f r xpenses d amages. he e ler a l e le e uyers r ) e ount f l nable t f cket al r t er enses rred y e uyers nection ith r s sult f vent f efault, i g h al d t er enses f use r tsi e unsel, ) ages ount ual e nable t f cket st i g l es, enses d missions) f t ri g t ent cti ns d t ri g t r inati g ge cti ns nection ith r s ult f vent f efault d ) y t er nable s, age, t f cket st r ense i ctly g r lti g e urrence f vent f efault ect f faulti g arty. .6. iability f r terest. o e tent r i ted pli able , e e ler a l e le e uyers r t rest y ounts ing y e e ler r under, e te e e ler es le r h ounts r nder ntil h ounts re ) aid l y e e ler r ) t i l y e ercise f e uyers’ ts r under. t rest y yable y e e ler der is cti n .6 a l e t te ual e r ater f e ri i g ate r e ant r nsaction r e r e efer nced ate. .7. ther ights. diti n ts r under, e uyers a l ve y ts r ise ail ble der y t er ent r pli able . .8. e l r’s epurchase ights. or i ance f ubt, ject e s d diti ns f is gr ement, e e ler ay rchase r hased oans, i i g ed asis, d se l h r hased oans; i ed at on e urrence d ri g e ti ance f vent f efault, e e ler ay r hase rchased oans y ent f e epurchase ri e r for ly on roval f e gent i r ti n ercised r ance ith e r visi ns f cti n 2. .9. le f urchased oans. he arties ledge d ree at ) e r hased oans ject y r nsaction r nder re ru ents d nized arket, ) e s nce f nera ly nized rce r ri es r i r ffer otati ns r y r hased oans, e gent ay t lish e rce refor, ) l ri es, i s d ffers a l e t ined et er ith r ed e ept e tent ntrary arket r ctice ith ect e ant r hased oans) d ) li it g rice, i d ffer otati ns r y rchased oan, nable r e gent se ly e ation i ed y e e ler rsuant cti n .

liquidate all Purchased Loans in the same manner or on the same Business Day and no such exercise of any right or remedy shall constitute a waiver of any other right or remedy of the Agent or the Buyers. 18.10. Setoff. Each of the Agent and any Buyer may set off against the Obligations any funds or debts owing to the Seller by the Agent or such Buyer, as applicable, including, but not limited to, any funds in any deposit account, savings certificate or other instrument now or hereafter maintained by, and for the sole benefit of, the Seller with the Agent or such Buyer, or any of the Agent’s or such Buyer’s Affiliates. The Seller hereby confirms the Agent’s and each Buyer’s right of lien and setoff and nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to constitute any waiver or prohibition thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that a Defaulting Buyer shall exercise any such right of setoff, (a) all amounts so set off shall be paid over immediately to the Agent for further application in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.10 and, pending such payment, shall be segregated by such Defaulting Buyer from its other funds and deemed held in trust for the benefit of the Agent, the Swing Line Buyer and the other Buyers, and (b) such Defaulting Buyer shall provide promptly to the Agent a statement describing in reasonable detail the obligations owing to such Defaulting Buyer as to which it exercised such right of setoff. Section 19. Servicing of the Purchased Loans. 19.1. Servicing Released Basis. Consistent with the Buyers’ purchase of the Purchased Loans on a servicing-released basis, the Seller shall have no ownership right whatsoever as to any of the Purchased Loans or the servicing rights related thereto, unless and until such Purchased Loans are repurchased by the Seller. Rather, the Seller shall have only servicing responsibilities with respect to the Purchased Loans that are subject to termination in accordance with Section 19.7. The Seller and the Buyers hereby acknowledge and agree that the provisions contained in this Section 19 are intended to be for the benefit of the Buyers and are an essential part of this Agreement, and that the nature and purpose of the purchase and sale obligations and the servicing obligations hereunder are interrelated. The Seller acknowledges that if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Agent for the benefit of the Buyers may, upon written notice to the Seller, without payment of any termination fee or other amount to the Seller, sell any or all of the Purchased Loans on a servicing released basis at the cost and expense of the Seller. 19.2. Servicing and Subservicing. The Seller hereby agrees, for the benefit of the Buyers, to service or contract with Subservicers to service the Purchased Loans in accordance with this Agreement and Accepted Servicing Practices. The Seller’s fees for its duties as Servicer, until terminated under Section 19.7, shall be twenty-five (25) basis points per annum on the unpaid principal balance of each Purchased Loan, payable from Income in accordance with the provisions of Section 8.2. The Servicer shall, and shall cause each Subservicer to, (a) comply with all applicable Federal, State and local laws and regulations in all material respects, (b) maintain all state and federal licenses necessary for it to perform its servicing responsibilities hereunder and (c) not impair the rights of the Buyers in any Purchased Loans or any payment thereunder. The Agent may terminate the servicing of any Purchased Loan with the then existing Servicer in accordance with Section 19.7. The Seller shall not be entitled to any servicing fee or other compensation in connection with its performance of the servicing 95 4857-1543-7856 5 iq i ate l r hased oans e e a ner r e e usine s ay d o h ercise f y t r edy a l nstitute aiver f y t er t r edy f e gent r e uyers. . 0. etoff. ach f e gent d y uyer ay t ff ainst e bligations y ds r bts ing e e ler y e gent r h uyer, s plicable, l ing, ut t i it d , y ds y posit ount, i gs rti i ate r t er ru ent r reafter aintained y, d r e le enefit f, e e ler ith e gent r h uyer, r y f e gent’s r h uyer’s filiates. he e ler r y fi s e gent’s d h uyer’s t f d t f d t i g is gree ent a l e ed nstitute y aiver r r hibiti n reof. otwithstanding e oing, e ent at efaulting uyer a l ercise y h t f t f, ) l ounts t ff a l e aid er ediately e gent r rt er pli ati n r ance ith e r visi ns f cti n . 0 d, ding h ent, a l e r ated y h efaulting uyer t er ds d ed ld st r e enefit f e gent, e ing i e uyer d e t er uyers, d ) h efaulting uyer a l r vide ptly e gent e ent scri i g able etail e li ati ns ing h efaulting uyer s hich ercised h t f t f. cti n . rvici g f e rchased oans. .1. rvici g el sed asis. onsistent ith e uyers’ rchase f e r hased oans i -r l sed asis, e e ler a l ve o nership t hatsoever s y f e r hased oans r e i i g ts t d reto, le s d ntil h rchased oans re r ased y e e ler. ather, e e ler a l ve ly i i g onsib lities ith ect e r hased oans at re ject inati n r ance ith cti n .7. he e ler d e uyers r y ledge d ree at e r visi ns tai ed is cti n re ed e r e enefit f e uyers d re ential art f is gr ement, d at e t re d r ose f e rchase d le li ati ns d e i i g li ati ns r nder re rr lated. he e ler ledges at vent f efault as u red d ti uing, e gent r e enefit f e uyers ay, on ri t n tice e e ler, it out ent f y inati n e r t er ount e e ler, l y r l f e r hased oans i i g ed asis t e st d ense f e e ler. .2. rvici g d bservicing. he e ler r y r es, r e nefit f e uyers, ice r ntract ith bservicers ice e r hased oans r ance ith is gree ent d cepted r ici g ractices. he e ler’s s r ties s rvicer, ntil i ated der cti n .7, a l e enty-five ) asis ints er e paid ri cipal l ce f h r hased oan, yable e r ance ith e r visi ns f cti n . . he rvicer all, d a l se h bservicer , ) ply ith l pli able ederal, t te d al s d lati ns l aterial ects, ) aintain l te d eral ic ses ce sary r r r i i g onsib lities r nder d ) t pair e ts f e uyers y rchased oans r y ent nder. he gent ay inate e i i g f y r hased oan ith e n isti g rvicer r ance ith cti n .7. he e ler a l t e titl y i i g e r t er pensation nection ith r ance f e i i g


 
responsibilities with respect to the Purchased Loans except to the extent that the Seller is Servicer. Nothing in this Section 19.2 shall be deemed to impair the rights of any Subservicer to fees and other compensation to which it is entitled under the applicable Servicing Agreement. 19.3. Escrow Payments. The Seller shall cause Servicer and any Subservicers to hold or cause to be held all escrow payments collected by the Seller with respect to any Purchased Loans in trust accounts and shall apply the same for the purposes for which such funds were collected. 19.4. Escrow and Income after Event of Default. After the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, (a) all funds received on or in connection with a Purchased Loan shall be received and held by the Seller, Servicer and each Subservicer in trust for the benefit of the Agent on behalf of the Buyers as owner of the Purchased Loans, and (b) neither the Seller nor Servicer shall be deemed to have any rights or ownership interest in such funds prior to their being remitted to the Agent on behalf of the Buyers. 19.5. Servicing Records. The Seller agrees that the Agent, on behalf of the Buyers, is the owner of all servicing records, including but not limited to any and all servicing agreements, files, documents, records, data bases, computer tapes, copies of computer tapes, proof of insurance or guaranty coverage, insurance or guaranty policies, appraisals, other closing documentation, payment history records, and any other records relating to or evidencing the servicing of Purchased Loans (the “Servicing Records). The Servicing Records of an eMortgage Loan specifically include, without limitation, such eMortgage Loan’s related Electronic Records. The Servicing Records are and shall be held in trust by the Seller, Servicer and each Subservicer for the benefit of the Agent as the owner thereof on behalf of the Buyers. Upon notice from the Agent after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Seller will cause Servicer and each Subservicer to (a) designate the Buyers as the owner of each Purchased Loan in its collateral tracking system, (b) segregate such Servicing Records from any and all servicing agreements, files, documents, records, data bases, computer tapes, copies of computer tapes, proof of insurance coverage, insurance policies, appraisals, other closing documentation, payment history records, and any other records relating to or evidencing the servicing of assets that are not Purchased Loans, (c) safeguard such Servicing Records and (d) deliver them promptly to the Agent or its designee (including the Custodian) at the Agent’s request. 19.6. Subservicer Instruction Letter. The Seller shall, prior to the initial Purchase Date of Purchased Loans serviced by any Subservicer, provide to the Buyers a Subservicer Instruction Letter addressed to and agreed to by such Subservicer of the related Purchased Loans. 19.7. Termination of Servicing. At any time during the existence of a Default or an Event of Default in the Agent’s sole discretion, the Agent may, and at the direction of the Required Buyers, shall (a) terminate the Seller’s rights as Servicer, and any Subservicer’s rights, if any, and obligations with respect to servicing of the Purchased Loans without payment of any penalty or termination fee (i) immediately with respect to the Seller and (ii) with respect to any Servicer (other than the Seller) or Subservicer, as promptly as possible subject to the terms and conditions of the applicable Servicing Agreement and Subservicer Instruction Letter; provided that any such termination shall be deemed to have occurred automatically upon the occurrence of an Event of Default set forth in Section 18.1(b), (b) require the Seller to enforce its rights and 96 4857-1543-7856 onsib lities ith ect e r hased oans cept e tent at e e ler ervicer. othing is cti n .2 a l e ed pair e ts f y bservicer s d t er pensation hich titl der e pli able r ici g gr ement. .3. scr ayments. he e ler a l se rvicer d y bservicers ld r se e ld l ents ll t d y e e ler ith ect y r hased oans st unts d a l ply e e r e r oses r hich h ds ere ll cted. .4. scr d e ft r vent f efault. fter e urrence d ri g e ti ance f vent f efault, ) l ds i ed r nection ith r hased oan a l e i ed d ld y e e ler, rvicer d h bservicer st r e enefit f e gent half f e uyers s ner f e r hased oans, d ) it er e e ler r rvicer a l e ed ve y ts r nership t rest h ds ri r eir i g i ted e gent half f e uyers. .5. rvici g ecords. he e ler rees at e gent, half f e uyers, e ner f l i i g ords, i g ut ot i it d y d l i i g r ents, s, cuments, rds, ta ases, puter es, pies f puter es, r of f r ce r aranty erage, r ce r aranty olicies, praisals, t er i g umen ation, ent i t ry ords, d y t er rds l t g r i cing e i i g f r hased oans e rvici g ecords”). he r ici g ecords f ortgage oan cifica ly l de, it out i itati n, h ortgage oan’s t d l ctr nic ecords. he r ici g ecords re d a l e ld st y e e ler, rvicer d h bservicer r e enefit f e gent s e ner r f half f e uyers. pon tice e gent t r e urrence d ri g e ti ance f vent f efault, e e ler i l se rvicer d h bservicer ) si nate e uyers s e ner f h r hased oan l teral i g t , ) r gate h r ici g ecords y d l i i g r ents, s, uments, rds, ta ases, puter es, pies f puter es, r of f r ce erage, r ce olicies, praisals, t er i g umen ation, ent i t ry ords, d y t er rds l t g r i cing e i i g f sets at re ot r hased oans, ) ard h r ici g ecords d ) li er ptly e gent r si e n i g e ustodian) t e gent’s uest. .6. bservicer st cti n e ter. he e ler all, ri r e itial rchase ate f r hased oans i ed y y bservicer, r vide e uyers bservicer t cti n e ter ressed d r ed y h bservicer f e t d r hased oans. .7. ination f rvicing. t y e ri g e i t ce f efault r vent f efault e gent’s le i retion, e gent ay, d t e i ti n f e equired uyers, a l ) inate e e ler’s ts s ervicer, d y bservicer’s hts, y, d li ati ns ith ect i i g f e r hased oans it out ent f y nalty r inati n e ) ediately ith ect e e ler d i) ith ect y rvicer t er n e e ler) r bservicer, s ptly s sible ject e s d diti ns f e pli able r ici g gree ent d bservicer t cti n e ter; i ed at y h inati n a l e ed ve u red t atically on e u rence f vent f efault t rt cti n .

remedies, as agent for and for the benefit of the Buyers in accordance with the Agent’s commercially reasonable instructions, with respect to any Purchased Loans under any Servicing Agreement, and (c) succeed to the rights and remedies of the Seller with respect to any Purchased Loans under any Servicing Agreement to the extent permitted by, and subject to, the terms of such Servicing Agreement (but not the obligations or liabilities of the Seller incurred prior to the date of such succession) and related Subservicer Instruction Letter. Upon any such termination, the Seller shall, and shall cause each Subservicer to, (A) perform the servicing responsibilities with respect to the Purchased Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement until the transfer of servicing responsibilities is effectuated and (B) cooperate, at the Seller’s expense, in transferring such servicing responsibilities with respect to the Purchased Loans to a successor Servicer appointed by the Agent in its sole discretion. Upon termination of the Seller as Servicer and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Seller shall, in the manner and at such times as the successor servicer or the Agent shall request, (1) promptly transfer all data in the Servicing Records relating to the Purchased Loans to the successor servicer in such electronic format as the successor servicer may reasonably request, (2) promptly transfer to the successor servicer, the Agent or its designee, all other files, records correspondence and documents relating to the Purchased Loans and (3) use commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate and coordinate with the successor servicer and the Agent to comply with any applicable so-called “goodbye” letter requirements or other applicable requirements of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act or other applicable legal or regulatory requirement associated with the transfer of the servicing of the Purchased Loans. Servicer acknowledges and agrees that if it fails to cooperate with the Agent or any successor servicer in effecting the termination of the Seller as Servicer of any Purchased Loan or the transfer of all authority to service such Purchased Loan to such successor servicer in accordance with the terms hereof, the Agent and the Buyers will be irreparably harmed and entitled to injunctive relief. 19.8. Notice from Seller. If the Seller should discover that, for any reason whatsoever, any entity responsible to the Seller by contract for managing or servicing any Purchased Loan has failed to perform in any material respects the Seller’s obligations under the Repurchase Documents or any of the material obligations of such entities with respect to the Purchased Loans, the Seller shall promptly notify the Agent. 19.9. Seller Remains Liable. Notwithstanding any Servicing Agreement or the provisions of this Agreement relating to agreements or arrangements between the Seller and a Subservicer or reference to actions taken through a Subservicer or otherwise, and unless the Agent has terminated the Seller’s rights pursuant to Section 19.7, the Seller shall remain obligated and primarily liable to the Buyers for servicing and administering of the Purchased Loans in accordance with the provisions hereof without diminution of such obligation or liability by virtue of such Servicing Agreements or arrangements or by virtue of indemnification from a Subservicer and to the same extent and under the same terms and conditions as if the Seller alone were servicing and administering the Purchased Loans. All actions of each Subservicer performed pursuant to the related Servicing Agreement shall be performed as an agent of the Seller with the same force and effect as if performed directly by the Seller and the Buyers shall have no obligations, duties or liabilities with respect to any Subservicer including no obligation, duty or liability of the Buyers to pay any Subservicer’s fees and expenses, provided, however, that each Subservicer may retain any amounts collected by it that it is entitled to retain pursuant to the applicable Servicing Agreement or Subservicer Instruction Letter.

entitled to enter into any agreement with each Subservicer for indemnification of the Seller by the Subservicer and nothing contained in this Repurchase Agreement shall be deemed to limit or modify such indemnification. 19.10. Backup Servicer. The Agent shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to appoint a Backup Servicer that will (a) serve as a backup servicer of the Purchased Loans until such time as the Agent shall appoint a successor servicer of the Purchased Loans and (b) become the successor servicer of the Purchased Loans at the Agent’s option. In connection with the appointment of a Backup Servicer as provided in the preceding sentence, the Agent may make such arrangements for the compensation of the Backup Servicer out of Income on the Mortgage Loans or otherwise as the Agent and such Backup Servicer shall agree. The Seller shall provide Backup Servicer with such data, files and information, in form, format and content as the Backup Servicer may request, in order to permit the Backup Servicer to service the Mortgage Loans in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices; all such data, files and information shall be updated by the Seller on a monthly basis as required by the Backup Servicer. 19.11. Successor Servicer. 1f the Backup Servicer or any other Person is appointed by the Agent to act as a successor servicer of the Purchased Loans pursuant to the preceding section, the Seller (in its capacity as Servicer hereunder) shall, and shall cause each Subservicer to, subject to such Subservicer’s rights under any applicable Servicing Agreement, and Subservicer Instruction Letter, discharge its servicing duties and responsibilities during the period from the date it acquires knowledge of such transfer of servicing until the effective date thereof with the same degree of diligence and prudence that it is obligated to exercise under this Agreement, and shall take no action whatsoever that might impair or prejudice the rights or financial condition of the successor Servicer. Within five (5) Business Days of the appointment of a successor Servicer of the Purchased Loans, the Seller shall, and shall cause each Subservicer to, prepare, execute and deliver to such successor Servicer any and all documents and other instruments, place in such successor’s possession all Servicing Records, and do or cause to be done all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect the transfer of servicing to the successor Servicer, including but not limited to the transfer and endorsement of the Mortgage Notes and related documents, and the preparation and recordation of assignments of Mortgage. The Seller shall (and shall cause each Subservicer to) cooperate with the Agent and the successor Servicer in effecting the transfer of servicing responsibilities to the Backup Servicer, including execution and delivery of servicing transfer notices to Mortgagors, MERS (if applicable), taxing authorities and insurance companies, the transfer to the Backup Servicer or successor Servicer for administration by it of all Income with respect to the Purchased Loans that shall at the time be held or received by the Seller or any Subservicer. The Seller shall deliver immediately to the successor Servicer all Purchased Loan documents and related documents and statements held by it or any Subservicer hereunder and the Seller shall account for all funds and shall execute and deliver such instruments and do such other things as may reasonably be required to more fully and definitively vest in the successor Servicer all such rights, powers, duties, responsibilities, obligations and liabilities of the Seller as servicer of the Purchased Loans. 98 4857-1543-7856 titl ter t y ent ith h bservicer r nification f e e ler y e bservicer d t i g t i ed is epurchase gree ent a l e ed it r odify h n fication. . 0. ackup rvicer. he gent a l ve e ht, le i retion, oint ackup rvicer at i l ) r e s kup icer f e r hased oans ntil h e s e gent a l point ce sor icer f e rchased oans d ) e e ce sor icer f e r hased oans t e gent’s tion. nection ith e i t ent f ackup rvicer s r i ed e r eding t nce, e gent ay ake h a ents r e pensation f e ackup rvicer t f e e ortgage oans r r ise s e gent d h ackup rvicer a l r e. he e ler a l r vide ackup rvicer ith h ata, s d ation, , at d ntent s e ackup rvicer ay uest, r er r it e ackup rvicer ice e ortgage oans r ance ith cepted r ici g ractices; l h ata, s d ation a l e dated y e e ler onthly asis s ired e ackup rvicer. . 1. cce sor ervicer.

None of Agent, its Affiliates nor any of their respective directors, officers, employees or agents shall be liable to any Buyer for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it or them under this Agreement or any document executed pursuant hereto, or in connection herewith or therewith with the consent or at the request of the Required Buyers (or all of the Buyers for those acts requiring consent of all of the Buyers) (except for its or their own willful misconduct or gross negligence), nor be responsible for or have any duties to ascertain, inquire into or verify (a) any recitals or warranties made by the Seller or any Affiliate of the Seller, or any officer thereof contained herein or therein, (b) the effectiveness, enforceability, validity or due execution of this Agreement or any document executed pursuant hereto or any security thereunder, (c) the performance by the Seller of its obligations hereunder or thereunder, or (d) the satisfaction of any condition hereunder or thereunder, including without limitation in connection with the making of any Transaction. The Agent and its Affiliates shall be entitled to rely upon any certificate, notice, document or other communication (including any cable, telegraph, telex, facsimile transmission or oral communication) believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been sent or given by or on behalf of a proper person. The Agent may employ agents and may consult with legal counsel, independent public accountants and other experts selected by it and shall not be liable to the Buyers (except as to money or property received by them or their authorized agents), for the negligence or misconduct of any such agent selected by it with reasonable care or for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it in good faith in accordance with the advice of such counsel, accountants or experts. (b) Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, whenever the Agent is authorized and empowered hereunder on behalf of the Buyers to give any approval or consent, or to make any request, or to take any other action on behalf of the Buyers (including without limitation the exercise of any right or remedy hereunder or under the other Repurchase Documents), the Agent shall be required to give such approval or consent, or to make such request or to take such other action only when so requested in writing by the Required Buyers or the Buyers, as applicable hereunder.

(c) Except as otherwise expressly provided under this Agreement or in any of the other Repurchase Documents and subject to the terms hereof, Agent will take such action, assert such rights and pursue such remedies under this Agreement and the other 101 4857-1543-7856 1 .2. pe f gent’s uties. ) he gent a l ve o ties r onsib lities cept se re sly t rt erein, d a l ot, y n f is gree ent r t r ise, ve iary ship ith y uyer d o plied enants r t er li ati ns a l e d t is gree ent ainst e gent). one f gent, filiates r y f eir ective i ctors, ffi ers, ploy es r ents a l e le y uyer r y ti n n r i ted e n y r der is gree ent r y ent cuted rsuant ereto, r nection r ith r ith ith e sent r t e uest f e equired uyers r l f e uyers r se ts uiri g sent f l f e uyers) cept r r eir n i lful isconduct r r s gli ence), r e nsible r r ve y ties ertain, uire t r erify ) y itals r a ranties ade y e e ler r y filiate f e e ler, r y ffi er f t i ed rein r rein, ) e t ne s, forceab lity, ali ity r e cuti n f is gree ent r y ent cuted rsuant reto r y urity nder, ) e ance y e e ler f li ati ns r nder r nder, r ) e t ti n f y nditi n r nder r nder, i g it out i it ti n nection ith e aking f y ransaction. he gent d filiates a l e titl l on y rtifi ate, tice, ent r t er munication i g y ble, r ph, l x, i ile ra i sion r ral munication) li ed y e uine d rect d ve en t r i en y r half f r per rson. he gent ay ploy ents d ay nsult ith al unsel, endent blic untants d t er perts t d y d a l ot e le e uyers ept s oney r r perty i ed y r eir t ori ed ents), r e li nce r isconduct f y h ent t d y ith nable re r r y ti n n r i ted e n y od it r ance ith e vice f h unsel, untants r perts. ) xcept s r ise re sly r i ed rein, henever e gent t ri ed d powered r nder half f e uyers i e y roval r nsent, r ake y uest, r e y t er ti n half f e uyers i g it out i it ti n e ercise f y t r edy r nder r der e t er epurchase ocuments), e gent a l e ired i e h roval r nsent, r ake h uest r e h t er ti n ly hen ested riti g y e equired uyers r e uyers, s pli able r under. ction at ay e n y e equired uyers, y t er cifi d er entage f e uyers r l f e uyers, s e se ay e s i ed r r nder) ay e en ) rsuant te f e uisite r entages f e uyers s ired r nder t eting hich ay e ld y e ne ference l), r i ed at gent ercises od it , i nt rts i e l f e uyers nable ance tice f e eting, r i) rsuant e ri t n sent f e uisite r entages f e uyers s uired r under, r i ed at l f e uyers re i n nable ance tice f e uests r h nsent. ) xcept s r ise re sly r vi ed der is gree ent r y f e t er epurchase ocuments d ject e s reof, gent i l e h ti n, sert h ts d rsue h edies der is gree ent d e t er


 
Repurchase Documents as the Required Buyers or all of the Buyers, as the case may be (as provided for hereunder), shall direct; provided, however, that the Agent shall not be required to act or omit to act if, in the reasonable judgment of the Agent, such action or omission may expose the Agent to personal liability for which Agent has not been satisfactorily indemnified hereunder or is contrary to this Agreement, any of the Repurchase Documents or applicable law. Except as expressly provided above or elsewhere in this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents, no Buyer (other than the Agent, acting in its capacity as agent) shall be entitled to take any enforcement action of any kind under this Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents. 22.3. Limitation on Duty to Disclose. Except as expressly set forth herein, the Agent shall not have any duty to disclose, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to the Seller or any of its Subsidiaries or Affiliates that is communicated to or obtained by the bank serving as Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity. 22.4. Authority of Agent to Enforce this Agreement. Each Buyer, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, grants the Agent full power and authority as attorney-in-fact to institute and maintain actions, suits or proceedings for the collection and enforcement of any Indebtedness outstanding under this Agreement or any other Repurchase Document and to file such proofs of debt or other documents as may be necessary to have the claims of the Buyers allowed in any proceeding relative to the Seller, or its creditors or affecting its properties, and to take such other actions which Agent considers to be necessary or desirable for the protection, collection and enforcement of this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents. 22.5. Agent in its Individual Capacity. Comerica Bank and its Affiliates, successors and assigns shall each have the same rights and powers hereunder as any other Buyer and may exercise or refrain from exercising the same as though such Buyer were not the Agent. Comerica Bank and its Affiliates may (without having to account therefor to any Buyer) accept deposits from, lend money to, and generally engage in any kind of banking, trust, financial advisory or other business with the Seller as if such Buyer were not acting as the Agent hereunder, and may accept fees and other consideration therefor without having to account for the same to the Buyers. 22.6. Actions Requiring All Buyers’ Consent. No amendment or waiver of, or any action with respect to, any provision of this Agreement or any of the Repurchase Documents shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be in writing signed by all the Buyers with respect to any amendment or waiver or any action that: (a) Increases the Maximum Aggregate Commitment or increases any Buyer’s Commitment (it being understood that, for the purposes of this Section 22.6(a), the Buyers’ execution of this Agreement evidences such Buyers’ consent to increasing the Maximum Aggregate Commitment and Buyer’s Commitment in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.6 hereof). (b) Agrees to any reduction in any Pricing Rate, Repurchase Price or fee provisions of this Agreement, excluding the provisions relating to the Agent’s Fee and other fees owing to the Agent only. 102 4857-1543-7856 2 epurchase ocuments s e equired uyers r l f e uyers, s e se ay e s r i ed r r under), a l irect; r vided, ever, at e gent a l t e uired t r it t , e nable ent f e gent, h ti n r i sion ay ose e gent rsonal ilit r hich gent as t en t t rily nified r nder r ntrary is gr ement, y f e epurchase ocuments r pli able . xcept s pre sly i ed ve r here is gree ent r e t er epurchase ocuments, o uyer t er n e gent, ti g acity s ent) a l e titl d e y ent ti n f y i d der is gree ent r y f e t er epurchase ocuments. .3. i itation uty isclose. xcept s re sly t rt erein, e gent a l ot ve y ty i l se, d a l ot e le r e i re i l se, y ation t g e e ler r y f bsidiaries r filiates at municated r t i ed y e k i g s gent r y f filiates y acity. .4. uthority f Ag t nforce is gr ement. ach uyer, ject e s d nditi ns f is gr ement, r nts e gent l er d t ority s y-in-fact tit te d aintain ti ns, its r eedings r e ll ti n d ent f y tedne s t i g der is gree ent r y t er epurchase ocument d h r ofs f bt r t er ents s ay e ce sary ve e s f e uyers lo ed y eeding l ti e e e ler, r itors r ti g r perties, d e h t er ti ns hich gent siders e ce sary r sir ble r e r tection, ll ti n d ent f is gree ent r e t er epurchase ocuments. .5. gent i i ual apacity. omerica ank d filiates, ce sors d i ns a l h ve e e ts d ers r nder s y t er uyer d ay ercise r i ercisi g e e s gh h uyer ere ot e gent. omerica ank d filiates ay it out i g unt r for y uyer) ept posits , d oney , d era ly age y i d f nking, st, cial isory r t er sine s ith e e ler s h uyer ere ot ti g s e gent r under, d ay ept s d t er si erati n r for it out ing unt r e e e uyers. .6. cti ns equiring l uyers’ onsent. o endment r aiver f, r y ti n ith ect , y r visi n f is gree ent r y f e epurchase ocuments a l y ent e ti e le s e e a l e riti g ed y l e uyers ith ect y endment r aiver r y ti n at: ) r ases e axi um gregate mitment r ases y uyer’s mitment t i g derst od at, r e r oses f is cti n .6(a), e uyers’ cuti n f is gree ent i nces h uyers’ sent si g e axi um gregate mitment d uyer’s mitment r ance ith e r visi ns f cti n . reof). ) gr es y cti n y ri i g ate, epurchase ri e r e r visi ns f is gr ement, l ding e r visi ns l t g e gent’s ee d t er s ing e gent ly.

22.10. Buyers’ Sharing Arrangement. (a) Each of the Buyers agrees that if it should receive any amount (whether by voluntary payment, realization upon security, the exercise of the right of set-off, or otherwise) that is applicable to the payment of Repurchase Price, Margin Deficit, Price Differential or any fees, that with respect to the related sum or sums received (or receivable) by the other Buyers is in greater proportion than that Buyer’s Pro Rata ownership of the Purchased Loans (after taking into account any waiver or adjustments in the Price Differential or fee owing to such Buyer in accordance with Sections 5.4 and 36 of this Agreement), then such Buyer receiving such excess amount shall purchase from the other Buyers a participation interest in the Purchased Loans in such amount as shall result in Pro Rata participation and ownership by all of the Buyers in such excess amount; provided that if all or any portion of such excess amount is thereafter recovered from such Buyer, such purchase shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery; and provided further that the provisions of this Section 22.10 shall not apply to any fees that the Agent may be entitled to from time to time or to any fees that the Custodian or any successor custodian might be paid pursuant to the Custody Agreement. (b) To the extent that the Seller fails to pay any amount required to be paid to the Agent under Section 20, each Buyer severally agrees to pay to the Agent such Buyer's Funding Share (determined as of the time that the unreimbursed expense or indemnity payment is sought) of such unpaid amount; provided, that the unreimbursed expense or indemnified payment, claim, damage, liability or related expense, as the case may be, was incurred by or asserted against the Agent in its capacity as such. 22.11. Buyers’ Acknowledgment. (a) Each Buyer other than Comerica Bank hereby acknowledges that Comerica Bank has made no representations or warranties with respect to any Purchased Loan other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement and that Comerica Bank shall have no responsibility (in its capacity as a Buyer, the Agent, or any other capacity or role) for: (1) the marketability or collectability of the Purchased Loans; (ii) the genuineness, validity, likelihood of performance as and when due or enforceability of any Investor Commitment or the solvency or performance record of any Approved Investor; (111) the validity, enforceability or any legal effect of any of the Repurchase Documents, any Loan Papers or any insurance, bond or similar device purportedly protecting any obligation to the Buyers or any Purchased Loans; or (iv) the financial condition of the Seller or any of its Subsidiaries or Affiliates, the status, health or viability of any industry in which any of them is involved, the prospects for repurchase of the Purchased Loans, the genuineness, validity or enforceability of any warehousing facility or repurchase agreement between the Seller and any other lender or repurchase agreement counterparty, the 105 4857-1543-7856 5 .10. uyers’ aring rr ngement. ) ach f e uyers rees at uld i e y ount hether y l ntary y ent, li ti n on urity, e ercise f e t f t- f, r r ise) at pli able e ent f epurchase rice, argin eficit, ri e i ferential r y es, at ith ect e l t d r s i ed r i able) y e t er uyers r ater r porti n n at uyer’s ro ata nership f e r hased oans ft r i g t unt y aiver r j t ents e ri e i ferential r e ing h uyer r ance ith cti ns . d f is gr ement), n h uyer i i g h ce s ount a l rchase e t er uyers arti i ati n t rest e r hased oans h ount s a l sult ro ata rti i ati n d nership y l f e uyers h ce s ount; i ed at l r y rti n f h ce s ount r after ered h uyer, h rchase a l e ed d e rchase ri e t r d e tent f h very; d r i ed rt er at e r visi ns f is cti n . 0 a l ot ply y s at e gent ay e titl d e e r y s at e ustodian r y ce sor st dian ight e aid rsuant e ust dy gr ement. ) o e tent at e e ler ils ay y ount ired e aid e gent der cti n 0, h uyer era ly rees y e gent h uyer's nding are i ed s f e e at e r bursed ense r nity ent ght) f h paid ount; r vided, at e r bursed ense r nified ent, i , age, ilit r l t d ense, s e se ay e, as rred y r rt d ainst e gent acity s ch. . 1. uyers’ cknowledgment. ) ach uyer t er n omerica ank r y ledges at omerica ank as ade o r sentati ns r a ranties ith ect y rchased oan t er n s re sly t rt is gree ent d at omerica ank a l ve o onsibility acity s uyer, e gent, r y t er acity r le) r: i) e arketab lity r ll ctability f e r hased oans; i) e uineness, alidity, ik d f ance s d hen e r f rceability f y estor mitment r e cy r r ance rd f y pproved estor; iii) e alidity, f rceability r y al ct f y f e epurchase ocuments, y oan apers r y r nce, nd r ilar vice r ortedly r t cti g y li ati n e uyers r y r hased oans; r ) e cial diti n f e e ler r y f bsidiaries r filiates, e t s, alth r i bility f y ustry hich y f lved, e r spects r r hase f e rchased oans, e uineness, ali ity r f rceability f y arehousing ilit r rchase ent t en e e ler d y t er er r rchase ent unterparty, e

(b) Each Buyer acknowledges that it has, independently of Agent and each other Buyer and based on the financial statements of Seller and such other documents, information and investigations as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit decision to extend credit hereunder from time to time. Each Buyer also acknowledges that it will, independently of Agent and each other Buyer and based on such other documents, information and investigations as it shall deem appropriate at any time, continue to make its own credit decisions as to exercising or not exercising from time to time any rights and privileges available to it under this Agreement, any Repurchase Document or any other document executed pursuant hereto. 22.12. Agent Market Value Determinations. The parties hereto agree and acknowledge that, in determining the Market Value of the Purchased Loans, the Agent (a) shall determine Market Value as a third party service provider, in accordance with standards customarily applicable in the financial industry to third party service providers providing values on comparable assets to be used in connection with the financing of such assets, and (b) shall not be obligated to do that same or similar amount of work or analysis as if it were valuing its own assets, or as if it were valuing such assets for the purchase or sale thereof by it or any other party. The parties hereto agree and acknowledge that any asset valuation information produced by the Agent is intended to be and should be used solely for the limited uses specified in this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents, and is not intended to be and should not be used by any Person for any other purpose. The parties hereto further agree and acknowledge that the Agent may elect to determine the Market Value for any Purchased Loan by determining the market bid price for a portfolio containing all Purchased Loans and allocating such portfolio market bid price among each individual Purchased Loan. 22.13. Agent’s Duty of Care, Express Negligence Waiver and Release. At all times until all Purchased Loans have all been repurchased by the Seller and the Buyers have no further commitments or other obligations under this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents, the Agent shall exercise the same degree of care in handling the Purchased Loans as Comerica Bank exercises with respect to loans that are held solely by Comerica Bank for its own account, and the Agent, in its capacity as Agent shall have no responsibility to the Buyers other than to exercise such standard of care and, in any event, Comerica Bank shall have no liability with respect to any other Buyer’s Pro Rata interest in the Purchased Loans except for Comerica Bank’s own fraud, gross negligence or willful misconduct. Except in the case of its own fraud, gross negligence or willful misconduct, neither the Agent, any Buyer, nor any of their officers, directors, employees, attorneys or agents shall be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it or them under this Agreement, the Custody Agreement, the MBS Custodial 106 4857-1543-7856 6 l e f y r hased oans, e t e s f y f e r visi ns f e epurchase ocuments n i g e cial enants, sts d ging i ents) r y ect f eir pl entation r inistrati n t y e ce r ntrol s f y e, uce t rns, rofits, i l s r ads r ce r ntrol ses r e racy f y ation plied y r e plied nection ith y f e e ler r y f bsidiaries r filiates, r r ise ith ect is gr ement, y r hased oans r y rce f uity r t er ci g r y f e e ler, y f filiates r y t er arehouse er r rchase ent nterparty. ) ach uyer ledges at as, endently f gent d h t er uyer d sed e cial e ents f e ler d h t er cuments, ation d sti ati ns s as ed propriate, ade n dit cisi n t d dit r nder e e. ach uyer l ledges at ill, endently f gent d h t er uyer d sed h t er uments, ation d esti ati ns s a l ropriate t y e, ti ue ake n dit cisi ns s ercisi g r t ercisi g e e y ts d ri il es ail ble der is gr ement, y epurchase ocument r y t er ent cuted rsuant ereto. .12. gent arket lue eterminations. he arties reto ree d ledge at, t ining e arket alue f e r hased oans, e gent ) a l t ine arket alue s i arty ice r vider, r ance ith ards t arily li able e cial ustry i arty ice r viders r viding l es parable sets e ed nection ith e n ci g f h sets, d ) a l ot e li ated at e r ilar ount f ork r alysis s ere l i g n sets, r s ere l i g h sets r e rchase r le r f r y t er arty. he arties reto ree d ledge at y set l ati n ation uced y e gent ed e d uld e sed l ly r e i it d ses cifi d is gree ent d e t er epurchase ocuments, d ot ed e d uld ot e sed y erson r y t er rpose. he arties reto rt er ree d ledge at e gent ay l ct t ine e arket alue r y r hased an y t ining e arket i ri e r rtfolio tai i g l r hased oans d ti g h rtfolio arket i ri e ong h i i ual rchased oan. .13. gent’s uty f are, xpre s egli ence aiver d elease. t l es ntil l r hased oans ve l en r ased y e e ler d e uyers ve o rt er mitments r t er li ati ns der is gree ent d e t er epurchase ocuments, e gent a l ercise e e r e f re dling e r hased oans s omerica ank ercises ith ect ns at re ld l ly y omerica ank r n ount, d e gent, acity s gent a l ve o onsibility e uyers t er n ercise h ard f re d, y ent, omerica ank a l ve o ilit ith ect y t er uyer’s ro ata t rest e rchased oans cept r omerica ank’s n d, r s li ence r i lful isconduct. xcept e se f n d, r s li nce r i lful isconduct, it er e gent, y uyer, r y f eir ffi ers, i ctors, ploy es, eys r ents a l e le r y ti n n r i ted e n y r der is gr ement, e ust dy gr ement, e BS ustodial

Except as otherwise specifically and expressly set forth in this Agreement, the Agent shall not be responsible in any manner to anyone for the effectiveness, enforceability, genuineness, validity or due execution of this Agreement, any supplement, amendment or restatement of it or of any other Repurchase Documents or for any representation, warranty, document, certificate, report or statement made or furnished in, under or in connection with this Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents or be under any obligation to anyone to ascertain or to inquire as to the performance or observation of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Agreement or of the other Repurchase Documents on the part of the Seller or anyone else. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing provisions of this Section 22.13, the Agent, in its capacity as Agent, may seek and rely upon the advice of legal counsel in taking or refraining to take any action under any of the Repurchase Documents or otherwise in respect of any Purchased Loans, this Agreement and its parties, and shall be fully protected in relying upon such advice. 22.14. Calculations of Shares of Principal and Other Sums. Except as provided to the contrary in Section 6.7 (“Increased Cost”), Section 6.8 (“Capital Requirements”), Section 7.1 (“Payments to be free of Taxes; Withholding”), Section 7.3 (“Taxes Indemnity”), Section 9.2 (“Agent’s Fee”), and Section 20 (“Payment of Expenses; Indemnity”), Comerica Bank’s and each other Buyer’s respective shares of Repurchase Prices and other sums received by the Agent on account of the Purchased Loans or with respect to them shall be calculated on the basis of each Buyer’s (including Comerica Bank’s) respective Pro Rata ownership interests in the Purchased Loans from time to time. 22.15. Successor Agent. Agent may resign as such at any time upon at least thirty (30) days prior notice to the Seller and each of the Buyers. If Agent at any time shall resign or if the office of Agent shall become vacant for any other reason, Required Buyers shall, by written instrument, appoint successor agent(s) (“Successor Agent”) satisfactory to such Required Buyers and, so long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, approved by the Seller (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed). Such Successor Agent shall thereupon become the Agent hereunder, as applicable, and Agent shall deliver or cause to be delivered to any successor agent such documents of transfer and assignment as such Successor Agent may reasonably request. If a Successor Agent is not so appointed or does not accept such appointment before the resigning Agent’s resignation becomes effective, the resigning Agent may appoint a temporary successor to act until such appointment by the Required Buyers and, if applicable, the Seller, is made and accepted, or if no such temporary successor is appointed as provided above by the resigning Agent, the Required Buyers shall thereafter perform all of the duties of the resigning Agent hereunder until such appointment by the Required Buyers and, if applicable, the Seller, is made and accepted. Such Successor Agent shall succeed to all of the rights and obligations of the resigning Agent as if originally named. The resigning Agent shall duly assign, transfer and deliver to such Successor Agent all moneys at the time held by the resigning Agent hereunder after deducting therefrom its expenses for 107 4857-1543-7856 7 gree ent r y f e t er epurchase ocuments ably li ed y r e ithin e i r ti n r er fe red on r y e epurchase ocuments r e nsible r s uences f y r f ent, e uyers re sly i g r y aive d se l r sent d t re s d ts ainst e gent ) ed, hole r art, der y r ry f i t ilit r ) r ages r ries sed r tri ted y y nified arty’s le r cu rent i ary li nce at es t ount r s li ence r i lful isconduct. xcept s r ise cifica ly d re sly t rt is gr ement, e gent a l t e nsible y a ner one r e ti ene s, forceab lity, uineness, ali ity r e cution f is gr ement, y l ent, endment r ent f r f y t er epurchase ocuments r r y r sentation, a ranty, ument, rtifi ate, ort r e ent ade r i ed , der r nection ith is gree ent r y f e t er epurchase ocuments r e der y li ati n one ertain r uire s e r ance r servation f y f e s, enants r diti ns f is gree ent r f e t er epurchase ocuments e art f e e ler r one l e. ithout i iti g e nerality f e ing r visi ns f is cti n .13, e gent, acity s gent, ay k d l on e vice f al nsel i g r i i g e y ti n der y f e epurchase ocuments r r ise ect f y rchased oans, is gree ent d arties, d a l e ll r t cted i g on h vice. .14. alculations f ares f ri cipal d ther s. xcept s r i ed e ntrary cti n . sed ost”), cti n . apital equirements”), cti n .1 y ents e f ee f xes; it holding”), cti n . xes emnity”), cti n . gent’s e”), d cti n ent f xpenses; emnity”), omerica ank’s d h t er uyer’s ective res f epurchase ri es d t er s i ed y e gent unt f e r hased oans r ith ect a l e l lated e asis f h uyer’s i g omerica ank’s) ective ro ata nership rests e rchased oans e e. .15. cce sor gent. gent ay i n s h t y e on t st irt ) ys ri r tice e e ler d h f e uyers. gent t y e a l i n r e ffi e f gent a l e cant r y t er son, equired uyers all, y ritt n ent, point e sor ent(s) cce sor gent”) t ry h equired uyers d, g s o efault r vent f efault as u red d nti uing, r ved y e e ler hich roval a l ot e r s nably it held r l yed). ch cce sor gent a l on e e gent r under, s plicable, d gent a l li er r se e l red y e sor ent h ents f sfer d ent s h cce sor gent ay ably uest. cce sor gent ot ointed r es t ept h oi t ent fore e i g gent’s ati n es ctive, e i g gent ay point e porary ce sor t ntil h oi t ent y e equired uyers d, plicable, e e ler, ade d epted, r o h e porary ce sor ointed s i ed ve y e i g gent, e equired uyers a l reafter r l f e ties f e i g gent r nder ntil h oi t ent y e equired uyers d, plicable, e e ler, ade d epted. ch cce sor gent a l eed l f e ts d li ati ns f e i g gent s i i a ly ed. he i g gent a l ly i n, sfer d li er h cce sor gent l oneys t e e eld y e i g gent r nder ft r ucting enses r


 
which it is entitled to be reimbursed hereunder. Upon such succession of any such Successor Agent, the resigning Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations, in its capacity as Agent hereunder, except for its gross negligence or willful misconduct arising prior to its resignation hereunder, and the provisions of this Section 22 shall continue in effect for the benefit of the resigning Agent in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as Agent. 22.16. Merger of the Agent. Any Person into which the Agent may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated, or any Person surviving or resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Agent shall be a party or any Person succeeding to the commercial banking business of the Agent shall be the successor Agent without the execution or filing of any paper or any further act on the part of any of the parties. 22.17. Participation; Assignment by Buyers. (a) Assignments. Any Buyer may at any time assign such Buyer’s rights and obligations hereunder and under the other Repurchase Documents by way of assignment to any Eligible Assignee in accordance with clause (d) of this Section 22.17, (and any other attempted assignment or transfer by any Buyer shall be deemed to be null and void). Each assignment by a Buyer of all or any portion of its rights and obligations hereunder and under the other Repurchase Documents, shall be subject to the following terms and conditions: (i) each such assignment shall be in a minimum amount of the lesser of (x) Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) or such lesser amount as the Agent shall agree and (y) the entire remaining amount of assigning Buyer’s Committed Sum; provided however that, after giving effect to such assignment, in no event shall the entire remaining amount (if any) of assigning Buyer’s Committed Sum be less than $5,000,000; (ii) each partial assignment shall be made as an assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Buyer’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, and (iii) the parties to any assignment shall execute and deliver to Agent an Assignment and Assumption substantially (as determined by Agent) in the form attached hereto as Exhibit E (with appropriate insertions acceptable to Agent), together with a processing and recordation fee in the amount, if any, required as set forth in the Assignment and Assumption. Until the Assignment and Assumption becomes effective in accordance with its terms, and Agent has confirmed that the assignment satisfies the requirements of this Section 22.17, the Seller and the Agent shall be entitled to continue to deal solely and directly with the assigning Buyer in connection with the interest so assigned.

sell participations in all or any part of such Buyer’s Commitment and Pro Rata ownership share of the Purchased Loans to any Person (other than a natural person or to the Seller or any of the Seller’s Affiliates or Subsidiaries); provided that any participation permitted hereunder shall comply with all applicable laws and shall be subject to a participation agreement that incorporates the following restrictions: 4857-1543-7856 (1) such Buyer shall remain the holder of the notes issued hereunder, if any, notwithstanding any such participation; (ii) a participant shall not reassign or transfer, or grant any sub- participations in its participation interest hereunder or any part thereof; and (iii) such Buyer shall retain the sole right and responsibility to enforce the obligations of the Seller relating to this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents, including, without limitation, the right to proceed against any Guarantors, or cause the Agent to do so (subject to the terms and conditions hereof), and the right to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement without the consent of the participant (unless such participant is a Buyer Affiliate), except to the extent such amendment, modification or waiver requires the consent of all Buyers under Section 22.6. In those cases (if any) where a Buyer grants rights to any of its participants to approve amendments, modifications or waivers of any Repurchase Documents pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence, such Buyer must include a voting mechanism as to all such approval rights in the relevant participation agreement(s) whereby a readily-determinable fraction of such Buyer’s portion of the Purchased Loans (whether held by such Buyer or participated) shall control the vote for all of such Buyer’s portion of the Purchased Loans; provided that if no such voting mechanism is provided for or is fully and immediately effective, then the vote of such Buyer itself shall be the vote for all of such Buyer’s portion of the Purchased Loans; and provided further that a participant may exercise approval rights over such matters only on an indirect basis, acting through such Buyer, and the Seller, Agent and the other Buyers may continue to deal directly with such Buyer in connection with such Buyer’s rights and duties hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, in the case of any participation granted by any Buyer hereunder, the participant shall not have any rights under this Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents against the Agent, any other Buyer or the Seller; provided, however that the participant may have rights against such Buyer in respect of such participation as may be set forth in the applicable participation agreement and all amounts payable by the Seller hereunder shall be determined as if such Buyer had not sold such participation. Each such participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 6.4, 6.5, and 7.1 of this Agreement to the same extent as if it were a Buyer and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to clause (a) of this Section 22.17, provided that no participant shall be entitled to receive any greater amount pursuant to such the provisions of Sections 6.4, 6.5 and 7.1 than the issuing Buyer would have been entitled to receive in respect of the amount of the participation transferred by such issuing Buyer to such participant had no such transfer occurred and each such 109 - 43-7856 l rti i ati ns l r y art f h uyer’s mitment d ro ata nership are f e r hased oans y ers n t er n atural rs n r e e ler r y f e e ler’s filiates r bsidiaries); r i ed at y arti i ati n r i ted r nder a l ply ith l pli able s d a l e ject arti i ati n ent at r orates e o ing tri ti ns: i) h uyer a l ain e lder f e tes d r under, y, t it st ding y h arti i ation; i) rti i ant a l ot si n r sfer, r r nt y b- rti i ati ns rti i ati n rest r nder r y art reof; d ii) h uyer a l t i e le t d onsibility f rce e li ati ns f e e ler l t g is gree ent d e t er epurchase ocuments, l ding, it out i itati n, e t r ceed ainst y uarantors, r se e gent ject e s d diti ns reof), d e t r ve y endment, odification r aiver f y r visi n f is gree ent it out e sent f e rti i ant le s h rti i ant uyer filiate), cept e tent h endment, odification r aiver uires e sent f l uyers der cti n .6. se ses y) here uyer r nts ts y f arti i ants r ve endments, odifications r aivers f y epurchase ocuments rsuant e ediately r eding t nce, h uyer ust l de ti g echanis s l h roval ts e ant rti i ati n r ent(s) hereby i inable t n f h uyer’s rti n f e r hased oans hether ld y h uyer r rti i ated) a l ntrol e te r l f h uyer’s rti n f e r hased oans; i ed at o h ti g echanis i ed r r ll d ediately ctive, n e te f h uyer lf a l e e te r l f h uyer’s rti n f e r hased oans; d i ed rt er at rti i ant ay ercise roval ts er h atters ly irect asis, ti g h h uyer, d e e ler, gent d e t er uyers ay ti ue al i ctly ith h uyer nection ith h uyer’s ts d ties r under. otwithstanding e oing, ever, e se f y rti i ati n ted y y uyer r under, e rti i ant a l ot ve y ts der is gree ent r y f e t er epurchase ocuments ainst e gent, y t er uyer r e e ler; r vided, ever at e arti i ant ay ve ts ainst h uyer ect f h rti i ati n s ay e t rt e pli able arti i ati n ent d l ounts yable y e e ler r nder a l e t ined s h uyer d ot l h arti i ation. ach h arti i ant a l e titl e enefits f cti ns .4, .5, d .1 f is gree ent e e tent s ere uyer d d uired t rest y ent rsuant se ) f is cti n .17, r i ed at o arti i ant a l e titl ei e y r ater ount rsuant h e r visi ns f cti ns .4, . d .1 n e i g uyer ould ve en titl d ei e ect f e ount f e rti i ati n f rr d y h i g uyer h rti i ant d o h sfer u red d h h


 
participant shall also be entitled to the same rights of set-off as though it were a Buyer, provided that such participant agrees to be subject to Section 22.10 hereof as though it were a Buyer. (c) Other Permitted Transfers. Any Buyer may at any time pledge, collaterally assign or grant a security interest in any or all of its interests under this Agreement and in the Purchased Loans to any Federal Reserve Bank or to any other Person to secure obligations of such Buyer, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank; provided that no such pledge or assignment shall release such Buyer from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledge or assignee for such Buyer as a party hereto. (d) Register. The Agent shall maintain at its principal office a copy of each Assignment Agreement delivered to it and a register (the “Register”) for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Buyers and the Committed Sum of, and amount owing to, each Buyer. The entries in the Register shall be conclusive evidence, absent manifest error, and the Seller, the Agent, and the Buyers may treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register as the owner of the advances recorded therein for all purposes of this Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Seller or any Buyer (but only with respect to any entry relating to such Buyer’s Committed Sum) upon reasonable notice to the Agent and a copy of such information shall be provided to any such party on their prior written request. The Agent shall give prompt written notice to the Seller of the making of any entry in the Register or any change in such entry. (e) Disclosure of Seller Information. The Seller authorizes each Buyer to disclose to any prospective assignee or participant which has satisfied the requirements hereunder, any and all financial information in such Buyer’s possession concerning the Seller which has been delivered to such Buyer pursuant to this Agreement, provided that each such prospective assignee or participant shall execute a confidentiality agreement consistent with the terms of Section 24.6 hereof or shall otherwise agree to be bound by the terms thereof. ® Nothing in this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents, expressed or implied, is intended to or shall confer on any Person other than the respective parties hereto and thereto and their successors and assignees and participants permitted hereunder and thereunder any benefit or any legal or equitable right, remedy or other claim under this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents. (2) If any interest in this Agreement is so transferred to any Person that is organized under the Legal Requirements of any jurisdiction other than the United States of America or any State thereof, the transferor Buyer shall cause such Person, concurrently with the effectiveness of such transfer, to comply with the relevant provisions of Section 7.5. (h) The Seller shall not be required to incur any cost or expense incident to any sale to a Person of any interest in the Repurchase Documents and the Purchased 110 4857-1543-7856 0 rti i ant a l l e titl e e ts f t f s gh ere uyer, r i ed at h rti i ant rees e ject cti n . 0 r of s gh ere uyer. ) ther ermi ted ransfers. ny uyer ay t y e l ge, ll t ra ly i n r r nt urity t rest y r l f rests der is gree ent d e r hased oans y ederal eserve ank r y t er erson ure li ati ns f h uyer, i g y l ge r ent ure li ati ns ederal eserve ank; r i ed at o h l ge r ent a l se h uyer y f li ati ns r nder r stitute y h l ge r e r h uyer s arty ereto. ) egister. he gent a l aintain t ri cipal ffi e y f h ssi ent gree ent l red d ister e egister”) r e r ati n f e es d re ses f e uyers d e o mitted f, d ount ing , h uyer. he tries e egister a l e clusive i ence, sent anifest r r, d e e ler, e gent, d e uyers ay at h erson hose e r ed e egister s e ner f e ances r ed rein r l rposes f is gr ement. he egister a l e ail ble r ecti n y e e ler r y uyer ut ly ith ect y try t g h uyer’s o mitted ) on nable tice e gent d y f h ation a l e r i ed y h arty eir ri r ri t n uest. he gent a l i e pt ri t n tice e e ler f e aking f y try e egister r y nge h try. ) iscl sure f e ler f ation. he e ler t orizes h uyer i l se y r spective e r arti i ant hich as t i e i ents r under, y d l cial ation h uyer’s sse si n cerning e e ler hich as en l red h uyer rsuant is gr ement, i ed at h h r spective e r arti i ant a l ecute nfidentiality ent nsistent ith e s f cti n .6 r of r a l r ise ree e nd y e s reof.

Loans pursuant to this Section 22.17 and all such costs and expenses shall be for the account of the Buyer selling its rights in the Purchased Loans to such Person. 22.18. The Agent and the Buyers are the only Beneficiaries of this Section. Other than the provisions of Section 22.15 and Section 22.17, this Section 22 is intended to bind and benefit only Comerica Bank and the other Buyers, and does not benefit and shall not be enforceable by the Seller or any other Person whatsoever. 22.19. Knowledge of Default. It is expressly understood and agreed that the Agent shall be entitled to assume that no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, unless the officers of the Agent immediately responsible for matters concerning this Agreement shall have received a written notice from a Buyer or the Seller specifying such Default or Event of Default and stating that such notice is a “notice of default”. Upon receiving such a notice, the Agent shall promptly notify each Buyer of such Default or Event of Default and provide each Buyer with a copy of such notice and shall endeavor to provide such notice to the Buyers within three (3) Business Days (but without any liability whatsoever in the event of its failure to do so). The Agent shall also furnish the Buyer, promptly upon receipt, with copies of all other notices or other information required to be provided by the Seller hereunder. 22.20. No Reliance on Agent’s Customer Identification Program. (a) Each Buyer acknowledges and agrees that neither such Buyer, nor any of its Affiliates, participants or assignees, may rely on the Agent to carry out such Buyer’s, Affiliate’s, participant’s or assignee’s customer identification program, or other obligations required or imposed under or pursuant to the USA Patriot Act or the regulations thereunder, including the regulations contained in 31 CFR 103.121 (as hereafter amended or replaced, the “CIP Regulations”), or any other Anti-Terrorism Law, including any programs involving any of the following items relating to or in connection with Seller or any of its Subsidiaries, any of their respective Affiliates or agents, the Repurchase Documents or the transactions hereunder: (i) any identify verification procedures, (ii) any record keeping, (iii) any comparisons with government lists, (iv) any customer notices or (v) any other procedures required under the CIP Regulations or such other laws. (b) Each Buyer or assignee or participant of a Buyer that is not organized under the laws of the United States or a state thereof (and is not excepted from the certification requirement contained in Section 313 of the USA Patriot Act and the applicable regulations because it is both (i) an affiliate of a depository institution or foreign bank that maintains a physical presence in the United States or foreign country, and (ii) subject to supervision by a banking authority regulating such affiliated depository institution or foreign bank) shall deliver to the Agent the certification, or, if applicable, recertification, certifying that such Buyer is not a “shell” and certifying to other matters as required by Section 313 of the USA Patriot Act and the applicable regulations: (x) within 10 days after the Effective Date, and (y) at such other times as are required under the USA Patriot Act. 22.21. Other Titles.

Without limiting the foregoing, the Buyers so identified shall not have or be deemed to have any fiduciary relationship with any Buyer as a result of such title. Each Buyer acknowledges that it has not relied, and will not rely, on the Buyer so identified in deciding to enter into this Agreement or in taking or not taking action hereunder. 22.22. Other Agreements. Each Buyer hereby irrevocably appoints, designates and authorizes Agent to enter into any Subordination Agreement, the Custody Agreement, the MBS Custodial Agreement and the Electronic Tracking Agreement, on its behalf and to take such action on its behalf under the provisions of any such agreement. Each Buyer further agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of each such Subordination Agreement, Custody Agreement, MBS Custodial Agreement and Electronic Tracking Agreement. 22.23. Erroneous Payments. (a) If the Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive and binding, absent manifest error) that the Agent or any of its Affiliates has erroneously, mistakenly or inadvertently transmitted any funds to any Buyer (whether or not such transmittal was known by such Buyer) (any such funds, whether received as a payment, prepayment, or repayment of Purchase Price, Price Differential, fees, distributions, or otherwise, individually and collectively, an “Erroneous Payment”) and the Agent subsequently demands the return of such Erroneous Payment (or any portion thereof), then such Buyer shall promptly, but in no event later than two (2) Business Days after such demand, return to the Agent the amount of any such Erroneous Payment (or portion thereof) as to which such demand was made by the Agent, in same day funds (in the currency so received), together with interest thereon in respect of each day from and including the date such amount was received by such Buyer to the date such amount is repaid to the Agent in same day funds at the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation (plus any administrative, processing or similar fees assessed by Agent in connection with the foregoing). (b) To the extent permitted by applicable law, each Buyer agrees not to assert any right or claim to any Erroneous Payment (or any portion thereof) and hereby waives any claim, counterclaim, defense or right of set-off or recoupment with respect to any demand, claim or counterclaim by the Agent for the return of any Erroneous Payment (or any portion thereof) (including, without limitation, any defense based on “discharge for value” or any similar doctrine). (©) This Section 22.23 shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Agent, any transfer of rights or obligations by, or the replacement of, a Buyer, the termination of the Commitments and/or the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all Obligations (or any portion thereof) under any Repurchase Document. 112 4857-1543-7856 2 ve y ht, er, li ation, ility, onsibility r ty der is gree ent s ult f h t er n se pli able l uyers s ch. ithout i iti g e oing, e uyers tifi d a l ot ve r e ed ve y iary ship ith y uyer s ult f h . ach uyer ledges at as ot li d, d i l ot ly, e uyer tifi d ci i g ter t is gree ent r i g r ot i g ti n r under. . 2. ther gr ements. ach uyer r y rre ably points, si nates d t orizes gent ter t y bordination gr ement, e ust dy gr ement, e BS ustodial gree ent d e l ctr nic r cking gr ement, half d e h ti n half der e r visi ns f y h r ent. ach uyer rt er rees e und e s d nditi ns f h h bordination gr ement, ust dy gr ement, BS ustodial gree ent d l ctr nic r cking gr ement. .23. rr neous ayments. ) e gent t ines hich t ination a l e clusive d i ding, sent anifest r) at e gent r y f filiates as eously, ist enly r vertently ra i ted y ds y uyer hether r ot h ittal as n y h uyer) y h ds, hether i ed s y ent, yment, r ent f rchase rice, rice i ferential, es, i t ti ns, r t r ise, i i ua ly d ll cti ely, rr eous ent”) d e gent s quently ands e t rn f h rr eous ent r y rti n reof), n h uyer a l r ptly, ut ent t r n o ) usine s ays ft r h and, t rn e gent e ount f y h r eous ent r rti n reof) s hich h and as ade y e gent, e y ds e r cy i ed), ether ith t rest n ect f h y d i g e ate h ount as i ed y h uyer e ate h ount aid e gent e y ds t e r ater f e ederal nds ffective ate d te t ined y e gent r ance ith king stry les k pensation l s y inistrative, r ce sing r ilar s ssed y gent nection ith e oing). ) o e tent r i ted y li able , h uyer rees ot sert y t r y r eous ent r y rti n reof) d r by aives y i , nterclai , f nse r t f t f r ent ith ect y and, r ntercl i y e gent r e rn f y rr eous ent r y rti n reof) ing, it out itati n, y f nse sed i arge r l e” r y ilar ctrine). c) his cti n . 3 a l r i e e ati n r ent f e gent, y sfer f ts r li ati ns y, r e ent f, uyer, e inati n f e mitments d/or e ent, t ti n r arge f l bligations r y rti n reof) der y epurchase ocument.

The Agent may, but, except as specifically provided herein, shall not be required to, take any action on the basis of any notice given to it by telephone, but the giver of any such notice shall promptly confirm such notice in writing or by facsimile, and such notice will not be deemed to have been received until such confirmation is deemed received in accordance with the provisions of this Section set forth above. If such telephonic notice conflicts with any such confirmation, the terms of such telephonic notice shall control.

(d) All uses of an E-System shall be governed by and subject to, in addition to this Section 23, separate terms and conditions posted or referenced in such E-System and related contractual obligations executed by the Agent, the Seller and the Buyers in connection with the use of such E-System. (e) All E-Systems and Electronic Transmissions shall be provided “as is” and “as available”. None of the Agent or any of its Affiliates warrants the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of any E-Systems or Electronic Transmission, and each disclaims all liability for errors or omissions therein. No warranty of any kind is made by the Agent or any of its Affiliates in connection with any E Systems or Electronic Transmission, including any warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement of third-party rights or freedom from viruses or other code defects. The Agent, the Seller and the Buyers agree that the Agent has no responsibility for maintaining or providing any equipment, software, services or any testing required in connection with any Electronic Transmission or otherwise required for any E-System. Section 24. Miscellaneous. 24.1. Further Assurances. At any time and from time to time, at the sole expense of the Seller, the Seller or the Servicer shall promptly provide such further reasonable assurances, documents and agreements and undertake such actions as the Agent may reasonably request in order to effect the purposes of this Agreement, including the assignment, conveyance and transfer of all right, title and interest of each Purchased Loan from the Seller to the Agent, or to otherwise obtain or preserve the benefits or rights granted under this Agreement. In the event the Seller, Servicer or any subservicer, in the performance of the Servicing Functions shall foreclose any Mortgage for which the Agent and the Buyers have not received the Repurchase Price, all such actions shall be taken in the name of the Agent for the benefit of the Buyers and in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices. 24.2. Agent as Attorney in Fact. The Agent is hereby appointed the attorney-in-fact of the Seller for the purpose of carrying out the provisions of this Agreement and taking any action and executing any instruments or documents that the Agent may deem reasonably necessary or advisable to accomplish the purposes hereof, which appointment as attorney-in-fact is irrevocable and coupled with an interest, although the Agent agrees not to exercise its rights under this power of attorney unless, in its opinion or the opinion of its legal counsel, an Event of Default has occurred that has not been cured by the Seller or that the Agent has not declared in writing to have been waived in accordance with Section 22. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, but subject to Section 18.3, the Agent shall have the right and power during the occurrence and continuation of any Event of Default to receive, endorse, collect and control all checks or instruments made payable to the order of the Seller and all other forms of payment to the Seller that represent any payment on account of the principal of or interest on or proceeds from any of the Purchased Loans and to give full discharge for the same. 115 4857-1543-7856 5 ) l ses f - yst a l e erned y d ject , diti n is cti n 3, arate s d diti ns sted r ed h - yst d t d ntractual li ati ns cuted y e gent, e e ler d e uyers nection ith e se f h - ystem. ) l - yst s d l ctr nic r s i sions a l e i ed s d s ailable”. one f e gent r y f filiates a rants e uracy, uacy r pletene s f y - yst s r l ctr nic r nsmi sion, d h s l ilit r rs r i sions rein. o a ranty f y i d ade y e gent r y f filiates nection ith y st s r l ctr nic r nsmission, i g y a ranty f erchantability, s r arti ular rpose, -i f ent f arty ts r ree i ses r t er de fects. he gent, e e ler d e uyers ree at e gent as o onsibility r aintaining r r viding y i ent, f are, ices r y t g ired nection ith y l ctr nic r s i sion r r ise ired r y - yste . cti n 4. isce l neous. .1. urther ssurances. t y e d e e, t e le ense f e e ler, e e ler r e rvicer a l ptly r vide h rt er nable rances, ents d ents d dertake h ti ns s e gent ay ably uest r er ct e rposes f is gr ement, i g e ent, eyance d sfer f l ht, d t rest f h r hased oan e e ler e gent, r r ise tain r r serve e nefits r ts ted der is gr ement. e ent e e ler, rvicer r y servicer, e ance f e r ici g nctions a l l se y ortgage r hich e gent d e uyers ve ot i ed e epurchase rice, l h t ns a l e n e e f e gent r e enefit f e uyers d r ance ith cepted r ici g ractices. .2. gent s tt r ey act. he gent r y ointed e y-in-fact f e e ler r e r ose f r i g t e r visi ns f is gree ent d i g y ti n d cuting y ru ents r ents at e gent ay ably ce sary r isable plish e rposes reof, hich oi t ent s y-in-fact rre able d pled ith t rest, h h e gent rees t ercise ts der is er f y le s, i i n r e i i n f al unsel, vent f efault as u red at as t en r d y e e ler r at e gent as ot cl red riti g ve en aived r ance ith cti n 2. ithout i iti g e nerality f e oing, ut ject cti n .3, e gent a l ve e t d er ri g e urrence d ti uati n f y vent f efault eive, dorse, l ct d ntrol l cks r ru ents ade yable e r er f e e ler d l t er s f ent e e ler at r sent y ent unt f e ri cipal f r t rest r r ceeds y f e rchased oans d i e l i arge r e e.

Privacy of Customer Information. The Seller’s Customer Information in the possession of the Agent or the Buyers, other than information independently obtained by the Agent or the Buyers and not derived in any manner from or using information obtained under or in connection with this Agreement, is and shall remain confidential and proprietary information of the Seller. Except in accordance with this Section 24.6, the Agent and the Buyers shall not use any Seller’s Customer Information for any purpose, including the marketing of products or services to, or the solicitation of business from, Customers, or disclose any Seller’s Customer Information to any Person, including any of the Agent’s or the Buyers’ employees, agents or contractors or any third party not affiliated with the Agent or a Buyer. The Agent and the Buyers may use or disclose the Seller’s Customer Information only to the extent necessary (a) for examination and audit of the Agent’s or the Buyers’ respective activities, books and records by their regulatory authorities, (b) to market or sell Purchased Mortgage Loans or to enforce or exercise their rights under any Repurchase Document, (c) to carry out the Agent’s, the Buyers’, the Custodian’s and the Approved MBS Custodian’s express rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents (including providing the Seller’s Customer Information to Approved Investors), or (d) in connection with an assignment or participation as authorized by Section 22 or in connection with any hedging transaction related to the Purchased Loans and for no other purpose; provided that the Agent and the Buyers may also use and disclose the Seller’s Customer Information as expressly permitted by the Seller in writing, to the extent that such express permission is in accordance with the Privacy Requirements. The Agent and the Buyers shall ensure that each Person to which the Agent or a Buyer intends to disclose Seller’s Customer Information, before any such disclosure of information, agrees to keep confidential any such Seller’s Customer Information and to use or disclose such Seller’s Customer Information only to the extent necessary to protect or exercise the Agent’s, the Buyers’, the Custodian’s and the Approved MBS Custodian’s rights and privileges, or to carry out the Agent’s, the Buyers’, the Custodian’s and the Approved MBS Custodian’s express obligations under this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents (including providing the Seller’s Customer Information to Approved Investors). The Agent agrees to maintain an Information Security Program and to assess, manage and control risks relating to the security and confidentiality of the Seller’s Customer Information pursuant to such program in the same manner as the Agent does in respect of its own customers’ information, and shall implement the standards relating to such risks in the manner set forth in the Interagency Guidelines Establishing Standards for Safeguarding Company Customer Information set forth in 12 CFR Parts 30, 208, 116 4857-1543-7856 6 .3. ires e ler. ny ounts e f rr d y e gent e e ler r nder t er n rchases ri es r e r hased oans) a l e t y rnal try r ire sfer) ediately ail ble ds e perating count. .4. ires gent. xcept s ay e r ise pre sly i ed erein, y ounts e f rr d y e e ler e gent r nder a l e t y ire sfer ediately ail ble ds e epurchase t ent count. .5. eceipt; vailable unds. ounts i ed ft r 0 . . etroit, ichigan e) y usine s ay a l e ed ve en aid d i ed e ext eding usine s ay. l ents d sfers f sh rsuant is gree ent a l e ade ly e ying d i i g unts re ith e e cial t ti n) y rnal tries, r r ise) y ire sfer, f ediately ail ble ds .S. lars. .6. ri acy f ust er ation. he e ler’s ust er ation e sse sion f e gent r e uyers, t er n ation endently t i ed y e gent r e uyers d ot ri ed y a ner r si g ation t i ed der r nection ith is gr ement, d a l ain nfidential d r prietary ation f e e ler. xcept r ance ith is cti n .6, e gent d e uyers a l t se y e ler’s ust er ation r y rpose, i g e arketing f r ducts r ices , r e li it t n f sine s , ustomers, r i l se y e ler’s ust er ation y erson, i g y f e gent’s r e uyers’ ploy es, ents r ntractors r y i arty ot i ith e gent r uyer. he gent d e uyers ay se r i l se e e ler’s ust er ation ly e tent ce sary ) r ination d dit f e gent’s r e uyers’ ective ti ities, oks d rds y eir lat ry thorities, ) arket r l r hased ortgage oans r f rce r ercise eir ts der y epurchase ocument, ) rry t e gent’s, e uyers’, e ustodian’s d e pproved BS ustodian’s pre s ts d li ati ns der is gree ent d e t er epurchase ocuments i g r viding e e ler’s ust er ation pproved estors), r ) nection ith ent r rti i ati n s t ri ed y cti n r nection ith y ging cti n t d e r hased oans d r o t er rpose; r i ed at e gent d e uyers ay l se d i l se e e ler’s ust er ation s pre sly r i ted y e e ler riti g, e tent at h pre s r i sion r ance ith e ri cy equirements. he gent d e uyers a l sure at h ers n hich e gent r uyer ds i l se e ler’s ust er ation, fore y h i l sure f ation, rees ep nfidential y h e ler’s ust er ation d se r i l se h e ler’s ust er ation ly e tent ce sary r tect r ercise e gent’s, e uyers’, e ustodian’s d e pproved BS ustodian’s ts d ri il ges, r rry t e gent’s, e uyers’, e ustodian’s d e pproved BS ustodian’s pre s li ati ns der is gree ent d e t er epurchase ocuments n i g r viding e e ler’s ust er ation pproved estors). he gent rees aintain ation curity r r d se s, anage d ntrol s l t g e urity d nfidentiality f e e ler’s ust er ation rsuant h r e e a ner s e gent es ect f n st ers’ ation, d a l pl ent e ards t g h s e a ner t rt e cy uidelines st bli i g t dards r f uarding pany ust er ation t rt R arts , 8,

Without limiting the scope of the foregoing sentence, the Agent and the Buyers shall use at least the same physical and other security measures to protect all of the Seller’s Customer Information in their possession or control as each of them uses for its own customers’ confidential and proprietary information. Section 25. Entire Agreement; Severability. This Agreement supersedes any existing agreements between the parties containing general terms and conditions for repurchase transactions. This Agreement may not be amended, modified or supplemented except in accordance with the provisions of Section 22 and such amendment, modification or supplement must be set forth in a writing signed by the parties required to do so in accordance with Section 22. Each provision and agreement herein shall be treated as separate and independent from any other provision or agreement herein and shall be enforceable notwithstanding the unenforceability of any such other provision or agreement. Section 26. Non-assignability; Termination; Replacement of Buyers. 26.1. Limited Assignment. Except with respect to any repurchase transaction, sale, transfer, pledge or hypothecation by the Agent or any Buyer pursuant to Section 22.17, the rights and obligations of the parties under this Agreement and under any Transaction shall not be assigned by any party without the prior written consent of the other parties and any such assignment without the prior written consent of the other parties shall be null and void. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement and any Transactions shall bind and benefit the parties and their respective successors and assigns. 26.2. Remedies Exception. Section 26.1 shall not preclude a party from assigning, charging or otherwise dealing with all or any part of its interest in any sum payable to it under Section 18. 26.3. Agreement Termination. This Agreement shall terminate, automatically and without any requirement for notice, on the date after the Termination Date on which all Obligations (other than contingent reimbursement or indemnification obligations as to which no claim has been asserted) have been indefeasibly paid in full, provided, that the provisions of Sections 6.7, 6.8, 7 and 20 shall survive the termination of this Agreement, provided further, that this Agreement and any Open Transactions may be extended by mutual agreement of the Buyers, the Agent and the Seller; and provided further, that no such party shall be obligated to agree to such an extension. 26.4. Replacement of Buyers. (a) If any Buyer becomes a Defaulting Buyer hereunder, or any Buyer does not consent to a modification or waiver of the terms of this Agreement or the other Repurchase Documents requested by the Agent, or otherwise fails to give its consent to an action requested by the Seller hereunder and, in each case, the Required Buyers have given their consent then, provided no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Seller may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Buyer and the Agent, require such Buyer to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions set forth in Section 22.17) all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement to an assignee (which 117 4857-1543-7856 7 1, 5, 3, 8, 4, 8 d 0. ithout i iti g e pe f e ing t nce, e gent d e uyers a l se t st e e ysical d t er urity easures r tect l f e e ler’s ust er ation eir sse sion r ntrol s h f ses r n st ers’ nfidential d r prietary ation. cti n 5. ntire greement; verab lity. his gree ent ersedes y isti g ents t en e arties tai i g neral s d nditi ns r rchase actions. his gree ent ay ot e ended, odified r l ented cept r ance ith e r visi ns f cti n d h endment, odification r l ent ust e t rt riti g ed y e arties ired r ance ith cti n 2. ach r visi n d ent rein a l e t d s arate d endent y t er r visi n r ent rein d a l e f rceable t it st ding e enforceab lity f y h t er r visi n r r ent. cti n 6. on-assignability; er ination; epl ce ent f uyers. .1. i ited ssi nment. xcept ith ect y r hase saction, le, sfer, l ge r othecation e gent r y uyer rsuant cti n .17, e ts d li ati ns f e arties der is gree ent d der y r nsaction a l t e ed y y arty it out e ri r ri t n sent f e t er arties d y h ent it out e ri r ri t n sent f e t er arties a l e u l d id. bject e oing, is gree ent d y r nsactions a l i d d enefit e arties d eir ective ce sors d i ns. .2. e edies xception. cti n .1 a l ot r l de arty i ning, r i g r r ise ali g ith l r y art f t rest y yable der cti n . .3. greement r ination. his gree ent a l inate, t atically d it out y i ent r otice, e te t r e er ination ate hich l bligations t er n ti gent i urs ent r nification li ati ns s hich o as en rt d) ve en feasibly aid l, r vided, at e r visi ns f cti ns . , . , d 0 a l r i e e inati n f is gr ement, i ed rt er, at is gree ent d y pen r nsactions ay e t ed utual ent f e uyers, e gent d e e ler; d i ed rt er, at o h arty a l e li ated ree h t nsion. .4. epl ce ent f uyers. ) y uyer es efaulting uyer r under, r y uyer es t sent odification r aiver f e s f is gree ent r e t er epurchase ocuments ested y e gent, r r ise ils i e sent ti n ested y e e ler r nder d, h se, e equired uyers ve i en eir sent n, i ed o efault r vent f efault as u red d nti uing, e e ler ay, t le ense d ffort, on tice h uyer d e gent, uire h uyer i n d l gate, it out urse r ance ith d ject e t t s t rt cti n . 7) l t rests, ts d li ati ns der is gree ent e hich

Section 30. Relationship of the Parties. This Agreement provides for the sale by the Seller and the purchase by the Buyers (acting through their agent and representative, the Agent) of Eligible Loans and the obligation of the Seller to repurchase them upon termination of each Transaction. The relationship between the Seller and the Buyers (and the Agent) is limited to that of seller and repurchaser on the one hand and buyers and resellers (and the Agent as the Buyers’ agent and representative) on the other. The provisions in this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents for compliance with financial covenants and delivery of financial statements are intended solely for the benefit of the Buyers and the Agent, to protect the interests of the Buyers as buyers, including the Buyers’ and the Agent’s interest in assuring repurchase of Purchased Loans at the termination of each Transaction, and nothing contained in this Agreement or any of the other Repurchase Documents shall be construed as permitting or obligating any Buyer or the Agent to act as a financial or business advisor or consultant to the Seller, as permitting or obligating any Buyer or the Agent to control the Seller or to conduct the Seller’s operations, as creating any fiduciary obligation on the part of the Buyers or the Agent to the Seller, or as creating any joint venture, agency or other relationship between the parties other than as explicitly and specifically stated in this Agreement. The Seller acknowledges that it has had the opportunity to obtain the advice of experienced counsel of its own choosing in connection with the negotiation and execution of this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents and to obtain the advice of such counsel with respect to all matters contained in the Repurchase Documents including the provision for waiver of trial by jury. The Seller further acknowledges that it is experienced with respect to financial and credit matters and has made its own independent decisions to apply to the Buyers and the Agent to enter into this Agreement, and to execute and deliver this Agreement and the other Repurchase Documents. 119 4857-1543-7856 9 cti n 9. aiver f ry rial.

Section 31. No Waivers, Etc. No express or implied waiver of any Event of Default by any party shall constitute a waiver of any other Event of Default and no exercise of any remedy hereunder by any party shall constitute a waiver of its right to exercise any other remedy hereunder. No modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement and no consent by any party to a departure herefrom shall be effective unless and until such shall be in writing and duly executed by the Seller and the parties required to do so pursuant to Section 23. Without limitation on any of the foregoing, the failure to give a notice pursuant to Section 23 will not constitute a waiver of any right to do so at a later date. The rights and remedies of the Buyers hereunder shall be cumulative and not exclusive of any rights and remedies that the Buyers would otherwise have. No failure or delay on the part of the Buyers in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege. Section 32. Use of Employee Plan Assets. 32.1. Prohibited Transactions. If assets of an employee benefit plan subject to any provision of ERISA are intended to be used by any party hereto (the “Plan Party”) in a Transaction, the Plan Party shall so notify the other parties prior to the Transaction. The Plan Party shall represent in writing to the other parties that the Transaction does not constitute a prohibited transaction under ERISA or is otherwise exempt therefrom, and the other parties may proceed in reliance thereon but shall not be required so to proceed. 32.2. Audited Financial Statements Required. Subject to the last sentence of Section 32.1, any such Transaction shall proceed only if the Seller furnishes or has furnished to the Agent its most recent available audited statement of its financial condition and its most recent subsequent unaudited statement of its financial condition. 32.3. Representations. By entering into a Transaction pursuant to this Section 32, the Seller shall be deemed (a) to represent to the Buyers and the Agent that since the date of the Seller’s latest such financial statements, there has been no material adverse change in the Seller’s financial condition that the Seller has not disclosed to the Agent, and (b) to agree to provide the Agent with future audited and unaudited statements of its financial condition as they are issued, so long as it is a Seller in any Open Transaction involving a Plan Party. Section 33. Intent. 33.1. Transactions are Repurchase Agreements and Securities Contracts. The parties intend and acknowledge that each Transaction is a “repurchase agreement” and a “master netting agreement” as such terms are defined in Section 101 of the Bankruptcy Code (except insofar as the type of Mortgage Loans subject to such Transaction or the term of such Transaction would render such definition inapplicable), and a “securities contract” as that term is defined in Section 741 of the Bankruptcy Code (except insofar as the type of assets subject to such Transaction would render such definition inapplicable). This Agreement also constitutes a “netting contract” as defined in and subject to Title IV of the Federal Deposit Insurance 120 4857-1543-7856 0 cti n 1. o aivers, tc. o pre s r plied aiver f y vent f efault y y arty a l nstitute aiver f y t er vent f efault d o ercise f y edy r nder y y arty a l nstitute aiver f t ercise y t er edy r under. o odification r aiver f y r visi n f is gree ent d o sent y y arty arture r a l e ti e le s d ntil h a l e riti g d ly cuted y e e ler d e arties uired rsuant cti n 3. ithout i it ti n y f e oing, e i re i e tice rsuant cti n 3 i l ot nstitute aiver f y t t t r ate. he ts d edies f e uyers r nder a l e ulative d ot cl sive f y ts d edies at e uyers ould r ise ve. o i re r l y e art f e uyers ercisi g y ht, er r ri il e r nder a l erate s aiver reof, r a l y le r artial ercise f y ht, er r ri il e r nder r l de y t er r rt er ercise r f r e ercise f y t er ht, er r ri il ge. cti n 2. se f ploy e l n sets. .1. rohibited nsactions. sets f ploy e nefit l n ject y r visi n f I A re ed e ed y y arty reto e lan arty”) ransaction, e l n arty a l tify e t er arties ri r e ransaction. he l n arty a l resent riti g e t er arties at e r nsaction es ot nstitute r hibited cti n der I r r ise pt , d e t er arties ay ceed ce n ut a l ot e ired r c ed. .2. udited i ancial t t ents equired. bject e st t ce f cti n 2.1, y h r nsaction a l r ceed ly e e ler i es r as i ed e gent ost ent ail ble dit d e ent f cial diti n d ost ent s quent audited e ent f cial ndition. .3. epresentations. y t ri g t r nsaction rsuant is cti n , e e ler a l e ed ) r sent e uyers d e gent at e e ate f e e ler’s t st h cial ents, re as en o aterial verse ge e e ler’s cial diti n at e e ler as ot i l sed e gent, d ) ree r vide e gent ith t re dited d audited e ents f cial diti n s y re ed, g s e ler y pen r nsaction l i g l n arty. cti n 3. tent. .1. nsactions re epurchase greements d curities ontracts. he arties d d ledge at h r nsaction rchase ent” d aster etti g ent” s h s re fi ed cti n 1 f e ankruptcy ode ept far s e e f ortgage oans ject h r nsaction r e f h r nsaction ould der h fi iti n plicable), d curities ntract” s at fi ed cti n 1 f e ankruptcy ode ept far s e e f sets ject h r nsaction ould der h fi iti n plicable). his gree ent l nstitutes e ti g ntract” s fi ed d ject itle f e ederal eposit r nce


 
Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 (“FDICIA”) and each payment entitlement and payment obligation under any Transaction hereunder shall constitute a “covered contractual payment entitlement” or “covered contractual payment obligation,” respectively, as defined in and subject to FDICIA (except insofar as any or all of the parties is not a “financial institution” as that term is defined in FDICIA). The Seller hereby agrees that it shall not challenge the characterization of this Agreement as a “repurchase agreement” as that term is defined in Section 101 of the Bankruptcy Code, or as a “securities contract” as that term is defined in Section 741 of the Bankruptcy Code in any dispute or proceeding. 33.2. Contractual Rights, Etc.Any party’s right to liquidate Mortgage Loans delivered to it in connection with Transactions hereunder or to exercise any other remedies pursuant to Section 18 is a contractual right to liquidate, terminate or accelerate such Transaction as described in Sections 555, 559 and 561 of the Bankruptcy Code. 33.3. FDIA. If a party hereto is an “insured depository institution,” as such term is defined in the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, as amended (“FDIA”), then each Transaction hereunder is a “qualified financial contract,” as that term is defined in FDIA and any rules, orders or policy statements thereunder (except insofar as the type of assets subject to such Transaction would render such definition inapplicable). 33.4. Master Netting Agreement. It is understood and agreed that this Agreement constitutes a “master netting agreement” as that term is defined in Section 101 of the Bankruptcy Code, and that a party’s right to cause the termination, liquidation, or acceleration of, or to offset net termination values, payment amounts or other transfer obligations arising under or in connection with, this Agreement or any Transaction is a contractual right to cause the termination, liquidation, or acceleration of, or to offset net termination values, payment amounts or other transfer obligations arising under or in connection with, this Agreement or any Transaction as described in Section 561 of the Bankruptcy Code. Section 34. Disclosure Relating to Certain Federal Protections. The parties acknowledge that they have been advised that: 34.1. Parties not Protected by SIPA or Insured by FDIC or NCUSIF. In the case of Transactions in which one of the parties is a broker or dealer registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) under Section 15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“1934 Act”), the Securities Investor Protection Corporation has taken the position that the provisions of SIPA do not protect the other party with respect to any Transaction hereunder. 34.2. SIPA Does Not Protect Government Securities Broker or Dealer Counterparty. In the case of Transactions in which one of the parties is a government securities broker or a government securities dealer registered with the SEC under Section 15C of the 1934 Act, SIPA will not provide protection to the other party with respect to any Transaction hereunder. 34.3. Transaction Funds Are Not Insured Deposits. In the case of Transactions in which one of the parties is a financial institution, funds held by such financial institution pursuant to a Transaction hereunder are not a deposit and therefore are not insured by the Federal 121 4857-1543-7856 1 orporation pr ve ent ct f 91 ICIA”) d h ent t le ent d ent li ati n der y r nsaction r nder a l nstitute ered ntractual ent t le ent” r ered ntractual ent li ati n,” ectively, s fi ed d ject I I cept far s y r l f e arties t ncial t ” s at fi ed ICIA). he e ler r y rees at a l ot all ge e aracterizati n f is gree ent s rchase ent” s at fi ed cti n 1 f e ankruptcy ode, r s curities ntract” s at fi ed cti n 1 f e ankruptcy ode y i ute r c eding. .2. ontractual ights, t . ny arty’s t iq i ate ortgage oans l red nection ith r nsactions r nder r ercise y t er edies rsuant cti n ntractual t i ate, inate r elerate h r nsaction s scri ed cti ns 5, 9 d 1 f e ankruptcy ode. .3.

USA Patriot Act Notification. Pursuant to Section 326 of the USA Patriot Act, the Agent and the Buyers hereby notify the Seller that if they or any of their Subsidiaries open an account, including any loan, deposit account, treasury management account, or other extension of credit with Agent or any Buyer, the Agent or the applicable Buyer will request the applicable Person’s name, tax identification number, business address and other information necessary to identify such Person (and may request such Person’s organizational documents or other identifying documents) to the extent necessary for the Agent and the applicable Buyer to comply with the USA Patriot Act. Section 36. Waiver of Fees, Costs and Expenses. Agent, Custodian, Approved MBS Custodian and each Buyer shall have the right, in their sole discretion, at any time and from time to time, to waive or reduce (but not increase) any fees (including the Facility Fee, the Agent’s Fee, and Custodian Fees) owing to it by the Seller, and/or any costs and expenses (including without limitation attorney's fees and third party audit fees) incurred by Agent, Custodian, Approved MBS Custodian or such Buyer for which the Seller is obligated to reimburse Agent, Custodian, Approved MBS Custodian or such Buyer. Custodian and each Buyer shall promptly inform the Agent of any waiver of all or any portion of the Facility Fee, Custodian Fees, account-related charges or fees, or any other fees, costs or expenses (including without limitation attorney's fees and third party audit fees) owing by Seller to such Buyer or Custodian under this Agreement. Such Buyer shall notify Seller and Agent of any waiver or reduction in the amount of the Facility Fee or other costs and expenses payable by the Seller to such Buyer. The waivers and adjustments identified in such notice shall become effective on a date determined by Agent (but in any event shall not become effective prior to the date such notice is received). The Seller hereby acknowledges and agrees that nothing in this Section 36 shall obligate any Buyer to grant any such waiver or reduction. Section 37. Amended and Restated. This Agreement amends, restates, replaces and supersedes in its entirety the Third Amended and Restated Master Repurchase Agreement between Seller, Comerica Bank, as agent, lead arranger and a buyer, and certain other buyers dated July 28, 2022 (as amended or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Prior Agreement”); provided, however, nothing contained herein shall impair the liens, security interests and other rights established or continued by the Prior Agreement, which liens, security interests and other rights shall continue in full force and effect. All “Purchased Loans” (as defined in the Prior Agreement) (the “Existing Purchased Loans”), shall be Purchased Loans under this Agreement as if originally funded under this Agreement so long as such Existing Purchased Loans meet all of the requirements for eligibility and inclusion under this Agreement, provided, however, (a) the determination of the Purchase Date under paragraph 9 of Schedule DQ under this Agreement shall be calculated based on the original Purchase Date as determined under the Prior Agreement, and (b) such Existing Purchased Loans shall be deemed to comply with the requirement of paragraph 8 of Schedule EL under this Agreement if the date of each underlying Mortgage Note for such Existing Purchased 122 4857-1543-7856 2 eposit r ce orporation h h er e ank r ce nd r e vings sociation r nce nd) r e ational redit nion are r nce nd, s plicable. cti n 5.

On the Effective Date, each Buyer shall (i) have Committed Sums equal to the applicable amounts set forth in Schedule BC hereto and (ii) have funded its Funding Share of all Transactions (and participation in Swing Line Transactions) outstanding on the Effective Date. To facilitate the foregoing, each Buyer which as a result of the adjustments of Committed Sums and Funding Shares evidenced by Schedule BC hereto is to have a greater principal amount of the Transactions outstanding than such Buyer had outstanding under the Prior Agreement immediately prior to the Effective Date, shall deliver to the Agent immediately available funds to cover such Transactions (and the Agent shall, to the extent of the funds so received, disburse funds to each Buyer which, as a result of the adjustment of the Funding Shares, is to have a lesser principal amount of Transactions outstanding than such Buyer had under the Prior Agreement). The Buyers agree that any Price Differential, Facility Fees and other fees accrued under the Prior Agreement shall constitute the property of the Buyers which were parties to the Prior Agreement and shall be distributed (to the extent received from the Seller) to such Buyers on the basis of the Funding Shares in effect under the Prior Agreement. Furthermore, it is acknowledged and agreed that all fees paid under the Prior Agreement shall not be recalculated, redistributed or reallocated by Agent among the Buyers.

(h) All Basic Papers for each Purchased Loan (except Wet Loans) will be transmitted to the Custodian with the Mortgage Loan Transmission File with which it is submitted for purchase. (1) Each assignment to the Agent of the Lien securing any Purchased Loan will be in proper and sufficient form for recording in the appropriate government office in the U.S. jurisdiction where the related Mortgaged Premises are located (no such assignment is required for any Mortgage that has been originated in the name of MERS and registered under the MERS® System). (9) The Seller has and will continue to have the requisite limited liability company, power and authority to sell the Purchased Loans to the Buyers, and the Purchased Loans sold and to be sold to the Buyers by the Seller under this Agreement or pursuant to it may be further sold, resold, assigned and reassigned to any Person or Persons without any requirement for the further consent of the Seller or the consent of any other party to any of the Loan Papers or obligated in respect of the Purchased Loans. (k) Each Purchased Loan is secured by a Lien having the priority represented by the Seller to the Agent or the Custodian, subject only to the Permitted Encumbrances, until that Purchased Loan shall have been repurchased by the Seller. 0) Each Purchased Loan is covered by an ALTA mortgage title insurance policy or such other form of title insurance as is acceptable to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, issued by and constituting the valid and binding obligation of a title insurer that is generally acceptable to prudent mortgage lenders who regularly originate or purchase Mortgage Loans comparable to the Purchased Loans that are for sale to prudent investors in the secondary market in which investors invest in Mortgage Loans such as the Purchased Loan insuring the Seller, its successors and assigns, as to the first priority of the Lien of the Mortgage on the related Mortgaged Premises, in an amount equal to the original principal amount of such Purchased Loan. The Seller is the named insured of such mortgage title insurance policy as a first lien mortgage holder (or, in the case of a Second Mortgage Loan, the Seller is the named insured as the second lien mortgage holder along with the first lien mortgage loan holder), the assignment to the Agent of the Seller’s interest in such policy does not require the consent of or notice to the insurer (or such consent has been obtained or notice given), and such policy is and will be in full force and effect and inure to the benefit of the Agent as and when such Purchased Loan is sold to the Buyers. No claims have been made under such policy and no prior holder of the Purchased Loan, including the Seller, has done, by act or omission, anything that would impair the coverage of such policy. (m) The improvements on the Mortgaged Premises consist of a completed single family residence, and the Mortgaged Premises securing each Purchased Loan are capable of being lawfully occupied under applicable Legal Requirements, all inspections, licenses and certificates required to be made or issued with respect to all occupied portions of such Mortgaged Premises and, with respect to the use and occupancy of the same, including certificates of occupancy and fire underwriting certificates, have been made or obtained from the appropriate Governmental Authority.

(n) The Seller has no knowledge of any circumstances or conditions with respect to the Mortgage, the Mortgaged Premises or the Customer in respect of any Purchased Loan (other than the Customer’s credit standing) that can reasonably be expected to cause private institutional investors that regularly invest in Mortgage Loans similar to such Purchased Loan to regard such Purchased Loan as an unacceptable investment or adversely affect the value or marketability of such Purchased Loan to other similar institutional investors. (0) Each Purchased Loan’s Mortgage contains an enforceable provision for acceleration of the maturity of the unpaid principal balance thereof in the event that the Mortgaged Premises are sold or transferred without the prior written consent of the holder thereof. (p) No Purchased Loan is a graduated payment Mortgage Loan or has a shared appreciation or other contingent interest feature. (Q All interest rate adjustments, if any, in respect of each Purchased Loan have been made in compliance with applicable Legal Requirement and the terms of the related Mortgage Note, and any interest required to be paid pursuant to applicable Legal Requirement has been properly paid and credited. (r) No Customer in respect of any Purchased Loan has notified the Seller, and the Seller has no knowledge, of any relief requested by or allowed to such Customer under the Servicemembers’ Civil Relief Act of 2003. (s) The Seller used no selection procedures that identified the Eligible Loans relating to a Transaction as being less desirable or valuable than other comparable assets in the Seller’s portfolio on the related Purchase Date, and no Purchased Loan was selected for inclusion in a Transaction on any basis that was intended to have a material adverse effect on the Buyers or the Agent. (t) No Purchased Loan is subject to a bankruptcy plan. (u) Each Purchased Loan is a “qualified mortgage” within the meaning of §860G(a)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. (v) All Purchased Loans and all related papers included in the Purchased Loans: 1 were originated or acquired by the Seller, a duly licensed mortgage lender in the ordinary course of its business; 2 have been made in compliance with all applicable requirements of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the federal Truth-In-Lending Act, the Fair Credit Billing Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, related statutes and regulations and all applicable Legal Requirements under usury, truth-in-lending, equal credit opportunity and all other Sch 153-3 4857-1543-7856 h .3 - 3 ) he e ler as o ledge f y c stances r diti ns ith ect e ortgage, e ortgaged r ises r e ust er ect f y r hased oan t er n e ust er’s dit i g) at n ably e ected se ri ate t t al estors at ularly est ortgage oans ilar h r hased oan ard h r hased oan s acceptable t ent r ersely ct e l e r arketab lity f h r hased oan t er ilar t t al estors. o) ach rchased oan’s ortgage ntains f rceable r visi n r elerati n f e aturity f e paid ri cipal l ce r f e ent at e ortgaged r ises re l r f rr d it out e ri r ritt n sent f e lder reof. ) o r hased oan uated ent ortgage an r as red reciati n r t er ti gent t rest t re. q) ll t rest te j st ents, y, ect f h r hased oan ve en ade pliance ith pli able egal equir ent d e s f e t d ortgage ote, d y t rest ired e aid rsuant pli able egal equir ent as en r perly aid d dited. ) o ust er ect f y rchased oan as tifi d e e ler, d e e ler as o ledge, f y li f ested y r lo ed h ust er der e embers’ ivil elief ct f 03. ) he e ler sed o ti n r cedures at tifi d e li ible oans t g r nsaction s i g s sir ble r l able n t er parable sets e e ler’s rtfolio e t d rchase ate, d o r hased oan as t d r l si n r nsaction y asis at as ed ve aterial erse ct e uyers r e gent. ) o rchased oan ject kruptcy l n. ) ach r hased oan ualifi d ortgage” ithin e eaning f 0G(a)(3) f e t r al evenue ode. ) l r hased oans d l t d pers ed e r hased oans: ere i ated r uired y e e ler, ly ic ed ortgage er e i ary urse f sine s; ve en ade pliance ith l pli able i ents f e eal state t ent r cedures ct, e qual redit portunity ct, e eral r t - ending ct, e air redit illi g ct, e air redit eporting ct, t d t tes d ulati ns d l pli able egal equire ents der sury, ding, ual dit portunity d l t er

(y) No Purchased Loan is In Default except as to which the Seller has given notice to the Agent (by reporting Purchased Loans that are delinquent Mortgage Loans). (2) The Mortgaged Premises in each Mortgage is insured by a fire and extended perils insurance policy and such other hazards as are customary in the area where the Mortgaged Property is located or customary under the Seller’s servicing procedures and the amount of the insurance is in the amount of the full insurable value of the Mortgaged Property on a replacement cost basis or the unpaid balance of the Mortgage Loans, whichever is less. If the Mortgaged Property is in an area identified by any federal governmental authority as having special flood hazards, and flood insurance is available, a flood insurance policy meeting the current guidelines of the Federal Insurance Administration is in effect. All such insurance policies (collectively, the “hazard insurance policy”) contain a standard mortgage clause naming the originator and its successors and assigns (including subsequent owners of the Mortgage Loan), as mortgagee. (aa) Each Purchased Loan is covered by an Investor Commitment or Hedge Agreement. kk ok sk sk ok ok ok As used in this Schedule 15.3, the following terms have the following meanings: “Appraisal” means an appraisal by a licensed appraiser selected in accordance with Agency guidelines and not identified to the Seller as an unacceptable appraiser by an Agency, and who is recognized and experienced in estimating the value of property of that same type in the community where it is located, and who, unless approved by the Agent on a case-by-case basis, is not a member, manager, director, officer or employee of the Seller or any Affiliate of the Seller, or related as a parent, sibling, child or first cousin to any of the Seller’s or any such Affiliate’s respective directors or officers or any of their spouses, a signed copy of the written report of which appraisal is in the possession of the Seller or the applicable Servicer. “Broker’s Price Opinion” means the written opinion of the value of a tract or parcel of real property improved by a one-, two-, three- or four-family residence securing a Mortgage Loan, issued by a real estate broker duly licensed as such by the jurisdiction in which the subject property is located that is reasonably acceptable to the Agent and that is not an Affiliate of the Seller or a director, member, manager, officer or employee of the Seller or any of its Affiliates, selected reasonably and in good faith by the Seller. “Current Appraisal” means an Appraisal dated no earlier than ninety (90) days (or such longer period, if any, as the Agent shall approve) before the relevant Determination Date. “Current Broker's Price Opinion” means a Broker’s Price Opinion dated no earlier than ninety (90) days (or such longer period, if any, as the Agent shall approve) before the relevant Determination Date.
