With effect from the Amendment Effective Date (as such term is defined in Clause 6 (Conditions Precedent)), the Subordinated Loan Agreement shall be amended as follows:

In the event that the Seller and the Subordinated Lender choose to use an interest rate other than the Eurocurrency Rate, the Seller and Subordinated Lender shall document such agreed upon interest rate in the Subordinated Loan Investment Request. Such interest shall, in accordance with Sections 2.6 (Collections prior to Facility Termination Date) and 2.7 (Collections after Facility Termination Date), as applicable, of the Receivables Transfer Agreement, be paid on each Settlement Date on which the Subordinated Loan is repayable in accordance with Section 3.2 to the extent that the Seller has available funds that are not needed to satisfy Senior Obligations then due and owing.”
