Section 1.Definitions. Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined in this Amendment have the meanings specified in the Repurchase Agreement.

“Termination Date” means the earlier of (i) July 20, 2022, and (ii) the date when the Buyers’ Commitments are terminated pursuant to this Agreement, by order of any Governmental Authority or by operation of law.
2.2.Provisions Relating to LIBOR Rate. Section 6.7 of the Repurchase Agreement is amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:
6.7 Provisions Relating to LIBOR Rate. If Agent has determined that (a)(i) the administrator, or any relevant agency or authority for such administrator, of LIBOR (or any substitute index which replaces LIBOR (LIBOR or such replacement, the “Benchmark”)) has announced that such Benchmark will no longer be provided, (ii) any relevant agency or authority has announced that such Benchmark is no longer representative, or (iii) any similar circumstance exists such that such Benchmark has become unavailable or ceased to exist, or (b) similar loans are being documented with a replacement rate to such Benchmark, Agent will (x) replace such Benchmark with a replacement rate or (y) if any such circumstance applies to fewer than all tenors of such Benchmark used for determining an interest period hereunder, discontinue the availability of the affected interest periods. In the case of LIBOR, (a) for any advance hereunder where the rate is reset daily, such replacement rate will be Daily Simple SOFR, plus the adjustment described below, and (b) for any advance hereunder where the rate is reset at monthly or longer intervals, such replacement rate will be Term SOFR, plus the adjustment described below; provided that if Agent determines in its sole discretion that (i) Term SOFR is not available for the applicable advance at the time of such replacement or (ii) the administration of Term SOFR is not administratively feasible for Agent, then such replacement rate will be Daily Simple SOFR, plus the adjustment described below.

In each case, Agent will add an adjustment to Term SOFR or Daily Simple SOFR that is selected or recommended by the Board. In connection with the selection and implementation of any such replacement rate, Agent may make any technical, administrative or operational changes that Agent decides may be appropriate to reflect the adoption and implementation of such replacement rate. Without limitation of the foregoing, in the case of a transition to Daily Simple SOFR, Agent will remove any option to select another rate that may change or is reset
on a daily basis, including, without limitation, Agent’s prime rate. Agent does not warrant or accept any responsibility for the administration or submission of, or any other matter related to, LIBOR or with respect to any alternative or successor rate thereto, or replacement rate thereof, including without limitation whether any such alternative, successor or replacement rate will have the same value as, or be economically equivalent to, LIBOR.
