AMENDED AND RESTATED RECEIVABLES SALE AGREEMENT
THIS AMENDED AND RESTATED RECEIVABLES SALE AGREEMENT, dated as of April 6, 2021 (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, this “Agreement”), is by and between Sealy Mattress Manufacturing Company, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“SMMC”), as the seller, and Tempur-Pedic North America, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“TPNA”), as the purchaser, and amends and restates in its entirety that certain Receivables Sale Agreement dated as of April 12, 2017, by and between SMMC and TPNA (the “Existing RSA”). Unless defined elsewhere herein, capitalized terms used in this Agreement shall have the meanings assigned to such terms in Exhibit I attached hereto (or, if not defined in Exhibit I attached hereto, the meanings assigned to such terms in Exhibit I to the CSA hereinafter described).
SMMC now owns, and from time to time hereafter will own, Receivables Assets. Upon the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth, SMMC wishes to sell and assign to TPNA, and TPNA wishes to purchase from SMMC, all of SMMC’s right, title and interest in and to the Receivables Assets existing as of the close of business on the Initial Cutoff Date and thereafter arising through and including the Termination Date.
SMMC and TPNA intend the transaction contemplated hereby to be a true sale of the Receivables Assets from SMMC to TPNA, providing TPNA with the full benefits of ownership of the Receivables Assets, and neither SMMC nor TPNA intends this transaction to be, or for any purpose to be characterized as, a loan from TPNA to SMMC secured by the Receivables Assets.
Immediately following its acquisition of the Receivables Assets from SMMC, TPNA will sell and/or contribute them to Tempur Sealy Receivables, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “SPE”), pursuant to that certain Amended and Restated Receivables Sale and Contribution Agreement, dated as of April 6, 2021, by and between TPNA, as seller and contributor, and the SPE, as the buyer and contributee (as the same may be amended, supplemented, restated or otherwise modified from time to time, the “RSCA”), and the SPE will pledge them to Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as administrative agent for the Lenders (together with its successors and assigns in such capacity, the “Administrative Agent”), pursuant to that certain Amended and Restated Credit and Security Agreement, dated as of April 6, 2021, by and among the SPE, as borrower, Tempur Sealy International, Inc., a Delaware corporation, as initial master servicer (the “Master Servicer”), the lenders from time to time party thereto (the “Lenders”) and the Administrative Agent (as the same may be amended, supplemented, restated or otherwise modified from time to time, the “CSA”), in exchange for certain loans.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual agreements herein contained and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:
Amounts and Terms
Section 1.1. Purchase of Receivables Assets.
a.Effective as of April 12, 2017 (the “Closing Date”), in consideration for the Purchase Price and upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein, SMMC hereby sells, assigns, transfers and otherwise conveys to TPNA, without recourse (except to the extent expressly provided herein), and TPNA hereby purchases from SMMC, all of SMMCs’ right, title and interest in and to (i) all Receivables existing as of the close of business on the Initial Cutoff Date and all Receivables thereafter arising through and including the Termination Date, together, in each case, with (ii) all Related Security relating thereto and (iii) all Collections of the foregoing (all of the foregoing in clauses (i), (ii) and (iii), collectively, the “Initial Receivables Assets”). On each Business Day after the Closing Date through and including the Termination Date (each such Business Day, together with the Closing Date, a “Purchase Date”), in consideration for the Purchase Price and upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein, SMMC shall sell, assign, transfer and otherwise convey to TPNA, without recourse (except to the extent expressly provided herein), and TPNA shall hereby purchase from SMMC, all of SMMCs’ right, title and interest in and to (i) all Receivables arising on such date, together, in each case, with (ii) all Related Security relating thereto and (iii) all Collections of the foregoing (all of the foregoing in clauses (i), (ii) and (iii), collectively, the “Subsequent Receivables Assets” and together with the Initial Receivables Assets, the “Receivables Assets”). TPNA shall be obligated to pay the Purchase Price for each Receivable in accordance with Section 1.2.
b.It is the intention of the parties hereto that the transfer of Receivables Assets hereunder shall constitute a true sale, which sale is absolute and irrevocable and provides TPNA with the full benefits of ownership of the Receivables Assets. Except for the Purchase Price Credits owed pursuant to Section 1.3, the transfer of Receivables Assets hereunder is made without recourse to SMMC for losses in respect of Receivables that are uncollectible on account of the insolvency, bankruptcy, lack of creditworthiness or other financial or credit condition of the related Obligor resulting in the inability to pay of such Obligor; provided, however, that (i) SMMC shall be liable to TPNA for all representations, warranties, covenants and indemnities made by it pursuant to the terms of any of the Transaction Documents to which it is a party, and (ii) such transfer does not constitute and is not intended to result in an assumption by TPNA or any assignee thereof of any obligation of SMMC or any other Person arising in connection with the Receivables Assets or any other obligations of SMMC. In view of the intention of the parties hereto that the transaction evidenced by this Agreement shall constitute a true sale of the Receivables Assets, rather than a loan secured thereby, SMMC agrees that it will, on or prior to each Purchase Date, include a notation in its master data processing records relating to the Receivables sold on such Purchase Date to indicate that such Receivables have been sold to TPNA.
Section 1.2. Payment for the Purchase.
a.The Purchase Price for each Receivable shall become owing in full by TPNA to SMMC on the related Purchase Date and shall be paid on the next Monthly Payment Date in cash, it being understood and agreed that any such transfer of cash may be made by book entry rather than wire transfer of immediately available funds or automated clearing house (ACH) transfer.
b.To the extent that TPNA is entitled to any Purchase Price Credit pursuant to Section 1.3 and the amount of such Purchase Price Credit exceeds the Purchase Price that would have been owed by TPNA to SMMC under Section 1.2(a) above on the immediately succeeding Purchase Date without taking such Purchase Price Credit into account for purposes of the calculation of such price, the excess shall be payable by SMMC to TPNA in cash, it being understood and agreed that any such transfer of cash may be made by book entry rather than wire transfer of immediately available funds or automated clearing house (ACH) transfer.
c.Notwithstanding the foregoing, on any Business Day prior to a Settlement Date, with the consent of the Administrative Agent (as the ultimate assignee of TPNA), which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, TPNA may provide written notice to SMMC excluding any Receivable from the Receivables being sold on such Settlement Date. Upon delivery of such notice to SMMC and receipt of the Administrative Agent’s consent, TPNA shall have no obligation to pay the Purchase Price for such Receivable, and such Purchase Price shall no longer be deemed owing hereunder.
Section 1.3. Purchase Price Credit Adjustments.
If on any day:
a.the Outstanding Balance of a Receivable originated by SMMC is:
i.reduced as a result of any defective or rejected or returned goods or services, any cash discount or any adjustment or otherwise by SMMC or any Affiliate thereof, or
ii.reduced or canceled as a result of a setoff in respect of any claim by any Person (whether such claim arises out of the same or a related transaction or an unrelated transaction), or
iii.reduced on account of the obligation of SMMC or any Affiliate thereof to pay the related Obligor any rebate or refund, or
iv.less than the amount included in the calculations in any Monthly Report, or
b.any of the representations and warranties set forth in Section 2.1(p) through and including Section 2.1(v) is not true when made or deemed made with respect to any Receivable,
then, in such event, TPNA shall be entitled to a credit (each, a “Purchase Price Credit”) against the Purchase Price otherwise payable hereunder equal to (A) in the case of clauses (a)(i)-(iv) above, the amount of such reduction or cancellation or the difference between the actual Outstanding Balance and the amount included in calculating the Net Pool Balance (as defined in the CSA), as applicable; and (B) in the case of clause (b) above, in the amount of the Purchase Price paid for such Receivable less Collections received by TPNA thereon. If, on any day prior to the Termination Date, the Purchase Price Credit due from SMMC exceeds the Purchase Price payable to SMMC on such day, the excess amount may be credited against the Purchase Price payable to SMMC on one or more subsequent Purchase Dates; provided, however, that (1) if any portion of a Purchase Price Credit remains unrealized on the Termination Date, it shall be payable by SMMC in cash on the Termination Date; (2) if any of the events described in clauses (a)(iv)-(iv) or (b) above occurs after the Termination Date, the resulting Purchase Price Credit shall be paid in cash on the date of occurrence; and (3) no Purchase Price Credit shall include any amount to the extent the same represents losses in respect of Receivables that are uncollectible on account of the insolvency, bankruptcy, lack of creditworthiness or other financial or credit condition of the related Obligor resulting in the inability to pay in respect of an Obligor.
Section 1.4. Payments.
All amounts to be paid or deposited by TPNA hereunder shall be paid or deposited in cash in accordance with the terms hereof on the day when due. Any transfer of cash from one party to the other may be made by book entry on the next Monthly Payment Date in lieu of sending a wire transfer or automated clearing house (ACH) transfer of funds. In the event that any payment or deposit owed by any Person hereunder becomes due on a day that is not a Business Day, then such payment or deposit shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day. Any payment or deposit that is not made when due shall accrue interest at the Default Rate until paid in full. All interest shall be computed for actual days elapsed on the basis of a year consisting of 360 days.
Section 1.5. Transfer of Records.
In connection with any sale of Receivables hereunder, SMMC hereby sells, transfers, assigns and otherwise conveys to TPNA all of its right and title to and interest in the existing and future Records relating to the Receivables sold hereunder, without the need for any further documentation in connection with such sale. In connection with such transfer, SMMC hereby grants to each of TPNA, the SPE, the Administrative Agent and the Master Servicer an irrevocable, non-exclusive license to use, without royalty or payment of any kind, all software used by SMMC to account for the Receivables, to the extent necessary to administer the Receivables, whether such software is owned by SMMC or is owned by others and used by SMMC under license agreements with respect thereto; provided, however, that so long as the Records maintained in any software the license or sublicense of which hereunder would require the consent of the applicable licensor can be exported to Excel, such software (the “Excluded Software”) shall not be included in the license granted in this Section 1.5. The license granted hereby shall be irrevocable until the payment in full of the Aggregate Unpaids (other than contingent indemnification obligations to the extent no claim giving rise thereto has been asserted), and shall automatically terminate on the date this Agreement terminates in accordance with its terms.
Section 1.6. Characterization.
If, notwithstanding the intention of the parties expressed in Section 1.1(b), the transfer by SMMC to TPNA of Receivables hereunder shall be characterized in any manner other than a true sale or such transfer for any reason shall be ineffective or unenforceable, then this Agreement shall be deemed to constitute a security agreement that creates or provides for a security interest to payment or performance of an obligation under the applicable UCC and other applicable law. For this purpose and without being in derogation of the parties’ intention that each transfer shall constitute a true sale and absolute assignment thereof, SMMC hereby grants to TPNA a security interest in all of SMMC’s right, title and interest in, to and under the Receivables Assets and all proceeds thereof, whether existing as of the close of business on the Initial Cutoff Date or thereafter arising through and including the Termination Date, to secure the prompt and complete payment of a loan deemed to have been made by TPNA to SMMC in an amount equal to the aggregate Purchase Price for the Receivables Assets, together with all other obligations of SMMC hereunder, which security interest, SMMC hereby represents and warrants, is valid, duly perfected and prior to all Liens. TPNA and its assigns shall have, in addition to the rights and remedies which they may have under this Agreement, all other rights and remedies provided to a secured creditor under the UCC and other applicable law, which rights and remedies shall be cumulative.
Representations and Warranties

c.No Legal Bar. The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which SMMC is a party, the sales of Receivables Assets hereunder and the use of the proceeds thereof (a) will not violate any Requirement of Law or any Contractual Obligation of SMMC and (b) will not result in, or require, the creation or imposition of any Lien on any of its properties or revenues pursuant to any Requirement of Law or any such Contractual Obligation (other than the Liens created by the Transaction Documents), except to the extent such violation or Lien, could not reasonably be expected, individually or in the aggregate, to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

k.Solvency. On the Closing Date and on each date thereafter on which a Receivable of SMMC is transferred hereunder prior to the Termination Date, SMMC is Solvent.

SMMC’s Federal Employer Identification Number and Organizational Identification Number are correctly set forth on Exhibit II. SMMC is organized solely under the laws of the jurisdiction listed in Exhibit II.
p.Names. Except as stated on Exhibit II and the name in which it has executed this Agreement, in the five (5) years prior to the Closing Date, SMMC has not used any legal names, trade names or assumed names.

SMMC has not granted any Person (other than TPNA, the SPE, the Master Servicer and the Administrative Agent and its assigns) access to or control of any such Lock-Box or Collection Account, or the right to take dominion and control of any such Lock-Box or Collection Account at a future time or upon the occurrence of a future event. To the extent that funds other than Collections are deposited into any Collection Account or Lock-Box, SMMC or the Master Servicer can promptly trace and identify which funds constitute Collections.
r.Compliance with Credit and Collection Policy. SMMC has complied in all material respects with the Credit and Collection Policy with regard to each Receivable and the related Contract.
s.Good Title. Immediately prior to or contemporaneously with each sale hereunder, SMMC shall be the legal and beneficial owner of all of its then existing Receivables Assets with respect thereto, free and clear of any Lien except as created by the Transaction Documents and except for Permitted Liens.
t.Perfection. Assuming the filing of the financing statements approved by SMMC on the date hereof, this Agreement, together with such financing statements, is effective to create in favor of TPNA, a valid and perfected Security Interest in the Collateral, free and clear of any Lien except as created by the Transactions Documents and except for Permitted Liens.
u.Payments to SMMC. With respect to each Receivable sold hereunder, TPNA has given fair market value and reasonably equivalent value to SMMC in consideration therefor and such transfer was not made for or on account of an antecedent debt. No transfer by SMMC of any Receivable under this Agreement is or may be voidable under any section of the Federal Bankruptcy Code.
v.Enforceability of Contracts. Each Contract with respect to each Receivable is effective to create, and has created, a valid and binding obligation of the related Obligor to pay the Outstanding Balance of such Receivable created thereunder and any accrued interest thereon, enforceable against such Obligor in accordance with its terms, except as such enforcement may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or other similar laws relating to or limiting creditors’ rights generally and by general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in a proceeding in equity or at law).
Section 3.1. Conditions Precedent.

Section 3.2. Conditions Precedent to Payments.

i.the representations and warranties set forth in Article II are true and correct in all material respects on and as of the date such Receivable is transferred hereunder as though made on and as of such date (except to the extent such representations and warranties refer to an earlier date, in which case they shall be true and correct in all material respects as of such earlier date); and
ii.no Termination Event is continuing.
Notwithstanding the foregoing conditions precedent, upon payment of the Purchase Price for any Receivable (whether through book entry of a transfer of cash from TPNA to SMMC or by offset of Purchase Price Credits owed to TPNA), title to such Receivable and the other related Receivables Assets shall vest in TPNA, whether or not the conditions precedent to TPNA’s obligation to pay for such Receivable were in fact satisfied.
