In addition, each Originator agrees that from time to time, at its expense, it will
promptly execute and deliver all further instruments and documents, and take all further action that Borrower or the Administrative Agent, as its assignee, may reasonably request in order to perfect or more fully evidence the purchases, sales and contributions hereunder, or to enable Borrower or the Administrative Agent, as its assignee, to exercise or enforce any of their respective rights with respect to the Transferred Receivables and the Related Assets.
