THIS FIRST AMENDMENT TO CREDIT AGREEMENT (this “Amendment”), dated as of December 10, 2018 (the “First Amendment Effective Date”), is entered into among INTUIT INC. (the “Borrower”), the Lenders party hereto, and BANK OF AMERICA, N.A., as Lead Administrative Agent (the “Lead Administrative Agent”). Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined shall have the meanings ascribed thereto in the Credit Agreement (as defined below).


WHEREAS, the Borrower, the Lenders from time to time party thereto and the Co-Administrative Agents, are parties to that certain Credit Agreement, dated as of February 1, 2016 (as amended, restated, amended and restated, supplemented, extended, replaced or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”); and

WHEREAS, the parties hereto have agreed to amend the Credit Agreement as provided herein.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the agreements contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:


1.    Amendments.

(a)    Section 1.01 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended by adding the following defined terms in appropriate alphabetical order:
Beneficial Ownership Certification” means a certification regarding beneficial ownership required by the Beneficial Ownership Regulation.
Beneficial Ownership Regulation” means 31 C.F.R. § 1010.230.
Finance Subsidiary” means any special purpose Subsidiary directly or indirectly wholly owned by an Originator formed to enter into any Structured Finance Transaction and which is organized in a manner (as determined by the Borrower in good faith) intended to reduce the likelihood that it would be substantively consolidated with the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries (other than Finance Subsidiaries) in the event the Borrower or any such Subsidiary (including the Originator) becomes subject to a proceeding under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (or other insolvency law).
First Amendment Effective Date” means December 10, 2018.
Originator” means Intuit Financing, Inc., a direct wholly-owned Subsidiary of the Borrower, or any other direct or indirect Subsidiary of the Borrower formed for the business purpose of originating loans, receivables or similar assets and financing, selling or securitizing the same.
Securitization Attributable Indebtedness” means, as of any date of determination, the amount of obligations outstanding on such date under the legal documents entered into as part of any Structured Finance Transaction that corresponds to the outstanding net investment (including loans) of, or cash purchase price paid by, the unaffiliated third party purchasers or financial institutions participating in such transaction and, as such, would be characterized as principal if such transaction were structured as a secured lending transaction rather than as a purchase (or, to the extent structured as a secured lending transaction, is principal).

Structured Finance Transaction” means any securitization, warehouse financing, repurchase transaction, whole loan sale transaction or similar financing or monetization of loans or receivables originated by an Originator, or any secured or unsecured hedge or swap related thereto, however named or documented, that (a) is not guaranteed by the Borrower, or any Subsidiary of the Borrower (other than Finance Subsidiaries or with respect to customary guarantees of performance, an Originator), (b) does not create recourse or obligations to the Borrower or any Subsidiary of the Borrower (other than an Originator or any Finance Subsidiary), (c) is structured such that recourse and obligations to the relevant Originator in connection with such transactions shall be limited to the extent customary (as determined by the Borrower in good faith) for similar transactions in the applicable jurisdictions (including, to the extent applicable, in a manner consistent with the delivery of a “true sale”/“absolute transfer” opinion with respect to any transfer by such Originator to a Finance Subsidiary) and (d) none of the Borrower nor any of its Subsidiaries (other than any Finance Subsidiary or, as permitted in clause (c) of this definition, an Originator) shall have provided, either directly or indirectly, any credit support of any kind in connection with such Structured Finance Transaction.  
(b)    Section 1.01 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended by amending and restating the following definitions appearing therein in their entirety to read as follows:
Debt” of any Person means, without duplication, (a) all indebtedness of such Person for borrowed money, (b) all obligations of such Person for the deferred purchase price of property or services (other than (i) trade payables incurred in the ordinary course of business of such Person and (ii) earn-outs, hold-backs and similar deferred payment of consideration in acquisitions (but only to the extent that (A) no payment is then owed thereunder and (B) the same are not fixed in amount and non-contingent)), (c) all obligations of such Person evidenced by notes, bonds, debentures or other similar instruments, (d) all obligations of such Person created or arising under any conditional sale or other title retention agreement with respect to property acquired by such Person (even though the rights and remedies of the seller or lender under such agreement in the event of default are limited to repossession or sale of such property), (e) all obligations of such Person as lessee under leases that have been or should be, in accordance with GAAP, recorded as capital leases, (f) all obligations, contingent or otherwise, of such Person in respect of acceptances, letters of credit or similar extensions of credit, (g) all net obligations of such Person in respect of Hedge Agreements entered into with a particular counterparty (determined as of any date as the amount such Person would be required to pay to its counterparty in accordance with the terms thereof as if terminated on such date of determination), (h) all Securitization Attributable Indebtedness of such Person (i) all Debt of others referred to in clauses (a) through (h) above or clause (j) below and other payment obligations (collectively, “Guaranteed Debt”) guaranteed directly or indirectly in any manner by such Person, or in effect guaranteed directly or indirectly by such Person through an agreement (i) to pay or purchase such Guaranteed Debt or to advance or supply funds for the payment or purchase of such Guaranteed Debt, (ii) to purchase, sell or lease (as lessee or lessor) property, or to purchase or sell services, primarily for the purpose of enabling the debtor to make payment of such Guaranteed Debt or to assure the holder of such Guaranteed Debt against loss, (iii) to supply funds to or in any other manner invest in the debtor (including any agreement to pay for property or services irrespective of whether such property is received or such services are rendered) or (iv) otherwise to assure a creditor against loss, and (j) all Debt referred to in clauses (a) through (i) above (including Guaranteed Debt) secured by (or for which the holder of such Debt has an existing right, contingent or otherwise, to be secured by) any Lien on property (including, without limitation, accounts and contract rights) owned by such Person, even though such Person has not assumed or become liable for the payment of such Debt.
Debt for Borrowed Money” means, as at any date of determination, all items that, in accordance with GAAP, would be classified as indebtedness on a Consolidated balance sheet of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries (but excluding indebtedness of any Finance Subsidiary issued or undertaken in any Structured Finance Transaction permitted under Section 6.04(g)).

Lead Arrangers” means MLPFS (or any other registered broker-dealer wholly-owned by Bank of America Corporation to which all or substantially all of Bank of America Corporation’s or any of its subsidiaries’ investment banking, commercial lending services or related businesses may be transferred following the First Amendment Effective Date), J.P. Morgan Securities L.L.C., U.S. Bank National Association and The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd., in their respective capacities as joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners.

(f)    Section 6.04 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended by (i) deleting clauses (e) and (f) thereof in their entirety and (ii) replacing them with new clauses (e), (f) and (g) thereof to read as follows:

3.    Payment of Expenses. The Borrower agrees to reimburse the Lead Administrative Agent for all reasonable and documented out of pocket expenses incurred by the Lead Administrative Agent in connection with the preparation, execution and delivery of this Amendment and any certificates or other documents prepared in connection

4.    Miscellaneous.
(a)    The Credit Agreement and the obligations of the Borrower thereunder and under the other Loan Documents are hereby ratified and confirmed and shall remain in full force and effect according to their terms. This Amendment is a Loan Document.
(b)    The Borrower represents and warrants that: (i) no authorization or approval or other action by, and no notice to or filing with, any Governmental Authority or regulatory body or any other third party is required for the due execution, delivery and performance by the Borrower of this Amendment; (ii) the execution, delivery and performance by the Borrower of this Amendment have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action, and do not contravene (A) the terms of the Borrower’s charter or by-laws, or (B) any law or any contractual restriction binding on or affecting the Borrower, other than violations of contractual restrictions that could not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect or result in the imposition of any Lien on any asset of the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries; (iii) this Amendment constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligations of the Borrower, enforceable against the Borrower in accordance with its terms, subject to (A) bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and other similar laws of general application affecting the rights and remedies of creditors, and (B) general principles of equity, regardless of whether applied in proceedings in equity or at law; and (iv) after giving effect to this Amendment, (A) the representations and warranties of the Borrower contained in Article III of the Credit Agreement (other than those set forth in Sections 3.05(b) and 3.06 of the Credit Agreement) are true and correct on and as of the First Amendment Effective Date, and (B) no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.
(c)    This Amendment may be executed in counterparts (and by different parties hereto in different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Amendment by facsimile or other electronic imagine means (e.g. “pdf” or “tif”) shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Amendment.
(d)    If any provision of this Amendment is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, (i) the legality, validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Amendment shall not be affected or impaired thereby and (ii) the parties shall endeavor in good faith negotiations to replace the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provisions with valid provisions the economic effect of which comes as close as possible to that of the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provisions. The invalidity of a provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.
(f)    The terms of Sections 9.09 and 9.10 of the Credit Agreement with respect to submission to jurisdiction, waiver of venue and waiver of jury trial are incorporated herein by reference, mutatis mutandis, and the parties hereto agree to such terms.
