“Scheduled Collateral Obligation Payment” means each periodic installment payable by an Obligor under a Collateral Obligation for principal, interest and/or unutilized/commitment fees (as applicable) in accordance with the terms of the related Underlying Instrument.
“Second Amendment Effective Date” means June 27, 2019.
“Second Lien Loan” means any Loan (including any portion of a unitranche Loan as set forth in the related Approval Notice) that (i) is not (and that by its terms is not permitted to become) subordinate in right of payment to any other obligation of the related Obligor other than a First Lien Loan with respect to the liquidation of such Obligor or the collateral for such Loan and (ii) is secured by a valid second priority perfected Lien to or on specified collateral securing the related Obligor’s obligations under the Loan, which Lien is not subordinate to the Lien securing any other debt for borrowed money other than a First Lien Loan on such specified collateral and any Permitted Liens. For the avoidance of doubt, a Collateral Obligation will not be a Second Lien Loan (i) solely because such Collateral Obligation is subordinated to a Permitted Working Capital Lien or (ii) if the Facility Agent designates such Collateral Obligation as a First Lien Loan pursuant to the proviso at the end of the definition of such term.

For the avoidance of doubt, any breach of a representation or warranty set forth in the first sentence of this Section 7.11 caused solely by a failure with respect to one or more Collateral Obligations shall not constitute an Event of Default if the Servicer otherwise complies with this Section
7.11 with respect to each such Collateral Obligation.
Section 7.12 Servicing of REO Assets. (a) If, in the reasonable business judgment of
the Servicer, it becomes necessary to convert any Collateral Obligation that is secured by real property into an REO Asset, the Servicer shall first cause the Borrower to transfer and assign such Collateral Obligation (or the portion thereof owned by the Borrower) to a special purpose vehicle (the “REO Asset Owner”) using a contribution agreement reasonably acceptable to the Facility Agent. All equity interests of the REO Asset Owner acquired by the Borrower shall immediately become a part of the Collateral and be subject to the grant of a security interest under Section 12.1 and shall be promptly delivered to the Collateral Agent, each undated and duly indorsed in blank.

After execution thereof, the Servicer shall prevent the REO Asset Owner from agreeing to any amendment or other modification of the REO Asset Owner’s organizational documents which would be materially
