(f) Whenever a notice or other communication to the Noteholders is required under this Indenture, unless and until Definitive Notes have been issued to the Noteholders, the Indenture Trustee shall give all such notices and communications to the Depositary. (g) The Indenture Trustee is hereby appointed as the Book-Entry Custodian and hereby agrees to act as such in accordance with the agreement that it has with the Depositary authorizing it to act as such.

The Issuer shall have the rights to inspect, and to obtain copies of, any Notes held as Global Notes by the Book-Entry Custodian.

Section 203 Execution; Recourse Obligation. The Notes shall be executed on behalf of the Issuer by an Authorized Signatory of the Issuer. The Notes shall be dated the date of their authentication by the Indenture Trustee. In case any Authorized Signatory of the Issuer whose signature shall appear on the Notes shall cease to be an Authorized Signatory of the Issuer before the authentication by the Indenture Trustee and delivery of such Notes, such signature or facsimile signature shall nevertheless be valid and sufficient for all purposes. All Notes and the interest and other amounts payable thereon shall be full recourse obligations of the Issuer and shall be secured by all of the Issuer’s right, title and interest in the applicable Collateral. The Notes shall never constitute obligations of the Indenture Trustee, the Manager, the Seller or of any shareholder or any Affiliate of the Seller (other than the Issuer) or any member of the Issuer, or any officers, directors, employees or agents of any thereof, and no recourse may be had under or upon any obligation, covenant or agreement of this Indenture, any Supplement or of any Notes, or for any claim based thereon or otherwise in respect thereof, against any incorporator or against any past, present, or future owner, partner of an owner or any officer, employee or director thereof or of any successor entity, or any other Person, either directly or through the Issuer, whether by virtue of any constitution, statute or rule of law, or by the enforcement of any assessment or penalty or otherwise; it being expressly agreed that this Indenture and the obligations issued hereunder are solely obligations of the Issuer, and that no such personal liability whatever shall attach to, or is or shall be incurred by, any other Person under or by reason of this Indenture, any Supplement or any Notes or implied therefrom, or for any claim based thereon or in respect thereof, all such liability and any and all such claims being hereby expressly waived and released as a condition of, and as a consideration for, the execution of this Indenture and the issue of such Notes. Except as provided in any Supplement, no Person other than the Issuer shall be liable for any obligation of the Issuer under this Indenture or any Note or any losses incurred by any Noteholder. Section 204 Certificate of Authentication. No Notes shall be secured hereby or entitled to the benefit hereof or shall be or become valid or obligatory for any purpose unless there shall be endorsed thereon a certificate of authentication by the Indenture Trustee, substantially in the form set forth in the form of Note attached to the related Supplement. Such certificate on any Note ###-###-#### 20654080


 
shall be conclusive evidence and the only competent evidence that the Note has been duly authenticated and delivered hereunder. At the written direction of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee shall authenticate and deliver the Notes. It shall not be necessary that the same signatory of the Indenture Trustee execute the certificate of authentication on each of the Notes. Section 205 Registration; Registration of Transfer and Exchange of Notes. (a) The Indenture Trustee shall keep at its Corporate Trust Office books for the registration and transfer of the Notes (the “Note Register”). The Issuer hereby appoints the Indenture Trustee as its registrar (the “Note Registrar”) and transfer agent to keep such books and make such registrations and transfers as are hereinafter set forth in this Section 205 and also authorizes and directs the Indenture Trustee to provide a copy of such registration record to the Manager upon its request. The names and addresses of, and the principal amounts (and stated interest) owing to, the Noteholders and all transfers of, and the names and addresses of the transferee of, all Notes will be registered in such Note Register. The Person in whose name any Note is so registered shall be deemed and treated as the owner and Noteholder thereof for all purposes of this Indenture, and none of the Indenture Trustee, the Note Registrar or the Issuer shall be affected by any notice or knowledge to the contrary. (b) Payments of principal, premium, if any, and interest on any Note shall be payable on each Payment Date only to the Person that was the Noteholder thereof on the Record Date immediately preceding such Payment Date. The principal of, premium, if any, and interest on each Note shall be payable at the Corporate Trust Office of the Indenture Trustee in immediately available funds in such coin or currency of the United States of America as at the time for payment shall be legal tender for the payment of public and private debts. (c) Notwithstanding the foregoing or any provision in any Note to the contrary, if so requested by the Noteholder by written notice (given at least ten (10) days prior to the applicable Payment Date) to the Indenture Trustee, all amounts payable to such Noteholder may be paid either (i) by crediting the amount to be distributed to such Noteholder to an account maintained by such Noteholder with the Indenture Trustee or by transferring such amount by wire to such other bank in the United States, including a Federal Reserve Bank, as shall have been specified in such notice, for credit to the account of such Noteholder maintained at such bank, or (ii) by mailing a check to such address as such Noteholder shall have specified in such notice, in either case without any presentment or surrender of such Note to the Indenture Trustee at the Corporate Trust Office of the Indenture Trustee (except in the case of final payment). (d) All payments on the Notes shall be paid to the Noteholders by wire transfer of immediately available funds for receipt prior to 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the related Payment Date. Any such payments received by the Noteholders after 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on any day shall be considered to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day; provided, however, that if the Issuer has deposited the required funds with the Indenture Trustee by close of business one (1) Business Day prior to the Payment Date, then the Issuer shall be deemed to have made such payment at the time so required on such date. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any provision in any Note to the contrary, if so requested by the registered Noteholder by written notice to the Indenture Trustee, all amounts payable to such registered Noteholder may be paid by mailing a check to such address as such Noteholder shall have specified in such notice, 8 ###-###-#### 20654080


 
in either case without any presentment or surrender of such Note to the Indenture Trustee at the Corporate Trust Office of the Indenture Trustee (except in the case of final payment). (e) Upon surrender for registration of transfer of any Note at the Corporate Trust Office, the Issuer shall execute and the Indenture Trustee, upon written request, shall authenticate and deliver, in the name of the designated transferee or transferees, one or more new Notes of the same Series and Class, of any authorized denominations and of like aggregate original principal amount. (f) All Notes issued upon any registration of transfer or exchange of Notes shall be the legal, valid and binding obligations of the Issuer, evidencing the same debt, and entitled to the same benefits under this Indenture and the relevant Supplement, as the Notes surrendered upon such registration of transfer or exchange. (g) Every Note presented or surrendered for registration of transfer or for exchange shall be duly endorsed, or be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer, in form satisfactory to the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee duly executed, by the Noteholder thereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing. (h) Any service charge, fees or expenses made or expense incurred by the Indenture Trustee for any such registration of transfer or exchange referred to in this Section 205 shall be paid by the applicable Noteholder. The Indenture Trustee or the Issuer may require payment by the applicable Noteholder of a sum sufficient to cover any tax, expense or other governmental charge payable in connection therewith. (i) Unless otherwise specified in the related Supplement, no transfer of any Note or interest therein shall be made unless that transfer is made pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act, and effective registration or qualification under applicable state securities laws, or is made in a transaction that does not require such registration or qualification. If a transfer of any Definitive Note is to be made without registration under the Securities Act (other than in connection with the initial issuance thereof or a transfer thereof by the Depositary or one of its Affiliates), then the Note Registrar shall refuse to register such transfer unless it receives (and upon receipt, may conclusively rely upon) either: (i) an Investment Letter signed by such Noteholder and such Noteholder’s prospective transferee; or (ii) an Opinion of Counsel satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee and the Issuer to the effect that such transfer may be made without registration under the Securities Act (which Opinion of Counsel shall not be an expense of the Issuer or any Affiliate thereof or of the Depositary, the Manager, the Indenture Trustee or the Note Registrar in their respective capacities as such), together with the written certification(s) as to the facts surrounding such transfer from the Noteholder desiring to effect such transfer or such Noteholder’s prospective transferee on which such Opinion of Counsel is based. If such a transfer of any interest in a Global Note is to be made without registration under the Securities Act, the transferor will be deemed to have made each of the representations and warranties set forth on Exhibit A hereto in respect of such interest as if it was evidenced by a Definitive Note and the transferee will be deemed to have made each of the representations and warranties set forth in either Exhibit A hereto in respect of such interest as if it was evidenced by a Definitive Note. None of the Depositary, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or the Note Registrar is obligated to register or qualify any Class of Notes under the Securities Act or any other securities ###-###-#### 20654080


 
law or to take any action not otherwise required under this Indenture to permit the transfer of any Note or interest therein without such registration or qualification. Any Noteholder or Note Owner desiring to effect such a transfer shall, and does hereby agree to, indemnify the Depositary, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Note Registrar against any liability that may result if any transfer made in accordance with the preceding sentence did in fact require registration under the Securities Act. (j) If Notes are issued or exchanged in definitive form under Section 202, such Notes will not be registered by the Indenture Trustee unless each prospective initial Noteholder acquiring a Note, each prospective transferee acquiring a Note and each prospective owner (or transferee thereof) of a beneficial interest in Notes (each, a “Prospective Owner”) acquiring such beneficial interest provides the Manager, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and any successor Manager with a written representation to the effect set forth in either subsection (i) or (ii) of the second sentence of Section 208. (k) No sale, assignment or other transfer of a Note shall be effective or deemed effective if such sale, assignment or other transfer is to a Competitor (as determined by the Issuer). Neither the Indenture Trustee nor the Issuer is under any obligation to register the Notes under the Securities Act or any other securities law or to bear any expense with respect to such registration by any other Person or monitor compliance of any transfer with the securities laws of the United States regulations promulgated in connection thereto or ERISA. (l) Any Note for which an Opinion of Counsel has not been rendered to the Issuer to the effect that such Note will constitute debt for United States federal income tax purposes (a “Subject Note”) shall be subject to the limitations of this Section 205(l). No Subject Notes may be transferred, and no transfer (or purported transfer) of all or any part of a Subject Note (or any direct or indirect economic or beneficial interest therein) (a “Transferred Note”) whether to another Noteholder or to a Person that is not a Noteholder (a “Transferee”), shall be effective, and to the greatest extent permitted under Applicable Law any such transfer (or purported transfer) shall be void ab initio, and no Person shall otherwise become a Holder of a Subject Note, except, in each case, for Subject Notes transferred to Affiliates of the Issuer, unless: (i) the Transferee provides the Note Registrar with its representations and warranties made for the benefit of the Issuer to the effect that: (A) either (I) it is not and will not become for U.S. federal income tax purposes a partnership, Subchapter S corporation or grantor trust (each such entity a “flow- through entity”) or (II) if it is or becomes a flow-through entity, then (x) none of the direct or indirect beneficial owners of any of the interests in the Transferee have or ever will have all or substantially all the value of its interest in the Transferee attributable to the interest of the Transferee in any Transferred Note, any other Notes, other interest (direct or indirect) in the Issuer, or any interest created under this Indenture or (y) it is not and will not be a principal purpose of the arrangement involving the investment of the Transferee in any Transferred Note to permit any partnership to satisfy the 100 partner limitation of Section 1.7704-1(h)(1)(ii) of the Treasury Regulations necessary for such partnership not to be classified as a publicly traded partnership under the Code, (B) the Transferee will not sell, assign, transfer or otherwise convey any participating interest in any Note or any financial instrument or contract the value of which is determined by reference in whole or in part to any Note, and (C) it is not acquiring and will not sell, transfer, assign, participate, pledge or otherwise dispose of any Transferred Note(s) (or interest therein) or cause any Transferred Note(s) (or interest therein) to be marketed on or through ###-###-#### 20654080


 
an “established securities market” within the meaning of Section 7704(b) of the Code, including, without limitation, an interdealer quotation system that regularly disseminates firm buy or sell quotations, and (ii) after such transfer there would be no more than 90 members of the limited liability company that is the Issuer (including as members, solely for purposes of this Section 205(l), Holders of any Subject Notes and any other instruments subject to the transfer restrictions of this Section 205(l)). The Issuer shall not recognize any prohibited Transfer described in this paragraph either (i) by redeeming the transferor’s interest, or (ii) by admitting the Transferee as such a Holder or otherwise recognizing any right of the Transferee (including, without limitation, any right of the Transferee to receive payments or other distributions from the Issuer, directly or indirectly). Section 206 Mutilated Destroyed, Lost and Stolen Notes. (a) If (i) any mutilated Note is surrendered to the Indenture Trustee, or the Indenture Trustee receives evidence to its satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Note, and (ii) there is delivered to the Indenture Trustee such security or indemnity as it and the Issuer may require to hold the Issuer, the Manager and the Indenture Trustee harmless, then the Issuer shall execute and the Indenture Trustee shall authenticate and deliver, in exchange for or in lieu of any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Note, a replacement Note of the same Series and Class and maturity and of like terms as the mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Note; provided, however, that if any such destroyed, lost or stolen Note, but not a mutilated Note, shall have become, or within seven days shall be, due and payable, the Issuer may pay such destroyed, lost or stolen Note when so due or payable instead of issuing a replacement Note. (b) If, after the delivery of such replacement Note, or payment of a destroyed, lost or stolen Note pursuant to the proviso to the preceding sentence, a protected purchaser (as defined in the UCC) of the original Note in lieu of which such replacement Note was issued (or such payment was made) presents for payment such original Note, the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to recover upon the security or indemnity provided therefor to the extent of any and all loss, damage, cost or expense incurred by the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee in connection therewith. (c) The Indenture Trustee and the Issuer may, for each new Note authenticated and delivered under the provisions of this Section 206, require the advance payment by the Noteholder of the expenses, including counsel fees, service charges and any tax or governmental charge that may be incurred by the Indenture Trustee or the Issuer in connection therewith. Any Note issued under the provisions of this Section 206 in lieu of any Note alleged to be destroyed, mutilated, lost or stolen, shall be equally and proportionately entitled to the benefits of this Indenture with all other Notes of the same Series and Class. The provisions of this Section 206 are exclusive and shall preclude (to the extent lawful) all other rights and remedies with respect to the replacement or payment of mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Notes. Section 207 Delivery, Retention and Cancellation of Notes. Each Noteholder is required, and hereby agrees, to return to the Indenture Trustee, such return to be completed prior to the receipt of such payment, any Note on which the final payment due thereon is to be made. Any such Note as to which the Indenture Trustee has made or holds the final payment thereon shall be deemed canceled, and shall no longer be Outstanding for any purpose of this Indenture, whether ###-###-#### 20654080


 
or not such Note is ever returned to the Indenture Trustee. Matured Notes delivered prior to final payment to the Indenture Trustee and any Notes transferred or exchanged for other Notes shall be canceled and disposed of by the Indenture Trustee in accordance with its policy of disposal and the Indenture Trustee shall promptly deliver to the Issuer such canceled Notes. If the Indenture Trustee shall acquire, for its own account, any of the Notes, such acquisition shall not operate as a redemption or satisfaction of the indebtedness represented by such Notes. If the Issuer shall acquire any of the Notes, such acquisition shall operate as a redemption or satisfaction of the indebtedness represented by such Notes. Notes which have been canceled by the Indenture Trustee shall be deemed paid and discharged for all purposes under this Indenture. Section 208 ERISA Deemed Representations. Each prospective initial Noteholder and each Prospective Owner of a Note will be deemed to have represented and warranted by such purchase that either (i) it is not acquiring and will not hold the Notes with the plan assets of a Benefit Plan or any other plan that is subject to Similar Law; or (ii) (a) the Notes are rated investment grade or better by a nationally recognized statistical rating agency at the time of purchase or transfer and have not been characterized as other than indebtedness for applicable local law purposes and (b) the acquisition, holding and disposition of the Note will not give rise to a non-exempt prohibited transaction under Section 406 of ERISA, Section 4975 of the Code or a violation of Similar Law.

Distributions of principal, premium, if any, and interest on any Series or Class of Notes shall be made to Noteholders of each Series and Class as set forth in the related Supplement.

(a) The Issuer shall have the right, but not the obligation, to make (or to direct the Indenture Trustee to make) principal payments on any Series of Notes and payments of other Outstanding Obligations from some or all of (i) amounts available for such purpose pursuant to the terms of an applicable Supplement, (ii) proceeds of the issuance of any Series of Notes and (iii) other funds held by the Issuer not constituting Series-Specific Collateral for another Series. Without limiting the foregoing, at the direction and in the sole discretion of the Issuer, amounts and proceeds contemplated by the preceding sentence may be included in distributions in respect of principal payments on the Notes of one or more Series and payments of other Outstanding Obligations. Section 302 Investment of Monies Held in each Revenue Reserve Account, each Restricted Cash Account, and each Other Series Account; Control over Eligible Investments.

If the Indenture Trustee has not received written instructions from the Issuer by 2:30 p.m. (New York time) on the day such funds are received as to the investment of funds then on deposit in any of the aforementioned accounts, the Issuer hereby instructs the Indenture Trustee to invest such funds in overnight investments of the type described in clause (vi) of the definition of Eligible Investments. Absent the availability of such investment, the funds shall remain uninvested pending receipt of such instructions or such availability. Eligible Investments shall be made in the name of the Securities Intermediary, and subject to the terms of the Control Agreements. Any earnings on Eligible Investments in each Revenue Reserve Account, each Restricted Cash Account and each other Series Account for such Series shall be retained in each such account and be distributed in accordance with the terms of this Indenture or any related Supplement.

The Issuer acknowledges that upon its written request and at no additional cost, it has the right to receive notification after the completion of each purchase and sale of Eligible Investments or the Indenture Trustee’s receipt of a broker’s confirmation. The Issuer agrees that such notifications shall not be provided by the Indenture Trustee hereunder except in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence, and the Indenture Trustee shall make available, upon request and in lieu of notifications, periodic account statements that reflect such investment activity. No statement need be made available for any fund/account if no activity has occurred in such fund/account during such period.

At all times on and after the Closing Date, each such account shall be the subject of a Control Agreement. (c) For each Outstanding Series, each Restricted Cash Account, Revenue Reserve Account and each other Series Account for such Series shall, to the extent provided in a Supplement, be established with the Indenture Trustee in the name of the Issuer and, so long as any applicable Outstanding Obligation remains unpaid, shall be maintained with the Indenture Trustee so long as (A) the short-term unsecured debt obligations of the financial institution fulfilling the role of the Indenture Trustee are rated not less than the Required Deposit Rating, or (B) such accounts are maintained at the Corporate Trust Office of the Indenture Trustee. If neither of the conditions set forth in clause (A) or clause (B) of the immediately preceding sentence is fulfilled, then all such accounts shall be promptly relocated to an Eligible Institution and all actions shall be taken in order to perfect the lien of the Indenture Trustee in each such account.

Section 305 [Reserved] Section 306 CUSIP Numbers. The Issuer in issuing the Notes may use “CUSIP” numbers (if then generally in use), and, if so, the Indenture Trustee shall use “CUSIP” numbers in notices of redemption as a convenience to Noteholders; provided that any such notice may state that no representation is made as to the correctness of such numbers either as printed on the Notes or as contained in any notice of a redemption and that reliance may be placed only on the other identification numbers printed on the Notes, and any such redemption shall not be affected by any defect in or omission of such numbers. The Issuer will promptly notify the Indenture Trustee of any change in the “CUSIP” numbers. Section 307 No Claim. Indemnities payable to the Indenture Trustee, the Manager, the Independent Director Provider, the Transition Agent and any other Person, shall be non-recourse to the Issuer and shall not constitute a claim (as defined in Section 101(5) of the Bankruptcy Code) 14 ###-###-#### 20654080


 
against the Issuer or the Collateral in the event such amounts are not paid in accordance with the terms of this Indenture or in accordance with any Supplement.

The consent of Noteholders shall not be required for any such withholding. Section 309 Tax Treatment of Notes.

The Issuer and the Indenture Trustee, by entering into this Indenture, and each Noteholder and beneficial owner of a Note, by its acceptance of its Note or of a beneficial interest therein, will be deemed to, agree to treat the Notes as indebtedness for United States federal, state and local income, single business and franchise tax purposes. (b) With respect to any outstanding Notes retained by the Issuer or conveyed to an Affiliate of the Issuer and sold to an unrelated purchaser at a later time (a “Later-Sold Note”), such sale will not be effective unless (A) the Issuer receives a Tax Opinion with respect to such sale and (B) either (i) such Later-Sold Note has a CUSIP number that is different than that of any other Notes outstanding immediately prior to such sale, or (ii) the Issuer receives an Opinion of Counsel that, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, either (x) such Later-Sold Note has the same issue price and issue date as do any outstanding Notes that have the same CUSIP number as the Later-Sold Note or (y) neither the Later-Sold Note nor any Outstanding Note that have the same CUSIP number as the Later-Sold Note were issued with original issue discount. In addition, with respect to the sale of a Later-Sold Note, such sale will not be effective unless the Issuer receives an Opinion of Counsel that such Note will be characterized as indebtedness for U.S. federal income tax purposes. ARTICLE IV COLLATERAL Section 401 Collateral. (a) The Notes and all other Outstanding Obligations shall be obligations of the Issuer as provided in Section 203 hereof.

The income, payments and proceeds of such Collateral shall be allocated to each such Person strictly in accordance with the applicable payment priorities set forth in this Indenture or the applicable Supplement. 15 ###-###-#### 20654080


 
(b) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Indenture to the contrary, the Issuer expressly agrees that it shall remain liable under each of its Contracts and Leases to observe and perform all the conditions and obligations to be observed and performed by it thereunder and that it shall perform all of its duties and obligations thereunder, all in accordance with and pursuant to the terms and provisions of each such Contract or Lease, as the case may be. (c) The Indenture Trustee hereby acknowledges the appointment by the Issuer of the Manager to service and administer the Managed Containers and related Leases in accordance with the provisions of the Management Agreement and the Intercreditor Collateral Agreement. So long as the Management Agreement shall not have been terminated in accordance with its terms, the Indenture Trustee hereby agrees to provide the Manager with such documentation, and to take all such actions with respect to the Managed Containers and related Leases as the Manager may reasonably request in accordance with the express provisions of the Management Agreement and the Intercreditor Collateral Agreement; provided, however, that the Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to receive from the Manager reasonable compensation and cost reimbursement for any such action. Until such time as the Management Agreement has been terminated in accordance with its terms, the Manager, on behalf of the Issuer, shall continue to collect all Accounts and payments on the Leases of the Managed Containers in accordance with the provisions of the Management Agreement and the Intercreditor Collateral Agreement and deposit such amounts into each applicable Series Account in accordance with the provisions of the Management Agreement and the Intercreditor Collateral Agreement. Any Proceeds received directly by the Issuer in payment of any Account or Leases with respect to, or in payment for or in respect of, any of the Managed Containers or on account of any of the Contracts to which the Issuer is a party shall be deposited by the Issuer in the applicable Series Account in accordance with the provisions of the Management Agreement and the Intercreditor Collateral Agreement, and until so deposited shall continue to be collateral security for all of the obligations secured by this Indenture and shall not constitute payment thereof until applied as hereinafter provided. If (i) a Series-Specific Event of Default has occurred or (ii) any Sale of Collateral pursuant to Section 816 hereof shall have occurred, the Issuer shall at the request of the Indenture Trustee, acting with the consent of or at the direction of the Control Party for the applicable Series, to the extent practicable, deliver to the Indenture Trustee (or such other Person as the Indenture Trustee may direct) originals (or, to the extent originals cannot be delivered, copies) of all Leases and other documents evidencing, and relating to, the sale, lease and delivery of the Managed Containers in the applicable Series-Specific Container Pool and the Issuer shall, to the extent practicable, deliver originals (or, to the extent originals cannot be delivered, copies) of all other documents evidencing and relating to, the performance of any labor, maintenance, remarketing or other service which created any Accounts, including, without limitation, all original orders, invoices and shipping receipts.

and the related Supplement. All Notes of a particular Class issued hereunder are and are to be, to the extent (including any exceptions) provided in this Indenture and the related Supplement, equally and ratably secured by this Indenture without preference, priority or distinction on account of the actual time or times of the authentication or delivery of the Notes so that all Notes of a particular Series and Class at any time Outstanding (including Notes owned by the Seller and its Affiliates, other than the Issuer) shall have the same right, Lien and preference under this Indenture and shall all be equally and ratably secured hereby with like effect as if they had all been executed, authenticated and delivered simultaneously on the date hereof. (b) If the conditions specified in Section 701 of this Indenture are met with respect to a Series of Notes, the security interest, and all other estate and rights granted by this Indenture with respect to such Series of Notes shall cease and become null and void, and all of the property, rights, and interest granted as security for the Notes of such Series shall revert to and revest in the Issuer without any other act or formality whatsoever. Section 403 Indenture Trustee’s Appointment as Attorney-in-Fact. (a) The Issuer hereby irrevocably constitutes and appoints the Indenture Trustee, and any officer or agent thereof, with full power of substitution, as its true and lawful attorney-in-fact with full irrevocable power and authority in the place and stead of the Issuer and in the name of the Issuer or in its own name, from time to time, for the purpose of carrying out the terms of this Indenture, to take any and all appropriate action and to execute and deliver any and all documents and instruments which may be necessary or desirable to accomplish the purposes of this Indenture; provided, however, that the Indenture Trustee has no obligation or duty to take such action or to determine whether to perfect, file, record or maintain any perfected, filed or recorded document or instrument (all of which the Issuer shall prepare, deliver and instruct the Indenture Trustee to execute, if applicable) in connection with the grant or security interest in the Collateral. (b) The Indenture Trustee shall not exercise the power of attorney or any rights granted to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to this Section 403 unless a Series-Specific Event of Default shall have occurred and then be continuing. The Issuer hereby ratifies, to the extent permitted by law, all actions that said attorney shall lawfully do, or cause to be done, by virtue hereof. The power of attorney granted pursuant to this Section 403 is a power coupled with an interest and shall be irrevocable until all Series of Notes are paid and performed in full. (c) The powers conferred on the Indenture Trustee hereunder are solely to protect the Indenture Trustee’s interests in the Collateral and shall not impose any duty upon it to exercise any such powers except as set forth herein. The Indenture Trustee shall be accountable only for amounts that it actually receives as a result of the exercise of such powers and neither it nor any of its officers, directors, employees, agents or representatives shall be responsible to the Issuer for any act or failure to act, except for its own willful misconduct or gross negligence or, with respect to any matter relating to the receipt, custody or distribution of funds or securities actually received by the Indenture Trustee in accordance with the Transaction Documents (collectively, “Fund Control Matters”), negligence .

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Indenture, the parties hereto agree that: (i) for the purposes of Section 3.3(a) of the Intercreditor Collateral Agreement, an “Event of Default” under this Indenture shall mean a Series Specific Manager Default; and (ii) Section 3.3(b) of the Intercreditor Collateral Agreement shall not apply to the Manager with respect to this Indenture or the Management Agreement. (e) If the Issuer fails to perform or comply with any of its agreements contained herein and a Responsible Officer of the Indenture Trustee shall receive notice of such failure, the Indenture Trustee, with the consent of an applicable Control Party or the Requisite Global Majority, as applicable, shall cause performance or compliance, or acting at the direction of an applicable Control Party or the Requisite Global Majority shall perform or comply, with such agreement; provided, however, that the Indenture Trustee shall have no obligation to so perform or comply if it has reasonable grounds to believe that payment of its expenses and interest thereon (as set forth in the following sentence) is not reasonably assured. The reasonable and documented expenses, including reasonable and documented attorneys’ fees and expenses, of the Indenture Trustee incurred in connection with such performance or compliance, shall be payable by the Issuer to the Indenture Trustee on demand and shall constitute additional Outstanding Obligations secured hereby and shall be paid in accordance with the provisions of the Supplements or Section 806 hereof. Section 404 Administration of Collateral. (a) The Indenture Trustee shall as promptly as practicable notify the Noteholders of the applicable Series and the Transition Agent of any Manager Default of which a Responsible Officer has actual knowledge.

In addition, upon the occurrence of a Back-up Manager Event, the Transition Agent (acting at the written direction of the Requisite Global Majority) shall solicit bids for a Back-up Manager pursuant to Section 3.11 of the Management Agreement. If a Back-up Manager shall not have assumed the duties of the Manager as a replacement Manager pursuant to a Back-up Management Agreement, or the Control Party for the applicable Series is unable to locate and qualify a replacement Manager acceptable to such Control Party, in either case within sixty (60) days after the date of delivery of the Manager Termination Notice, then the Indenture Trustee may (and shall, upon the direction of such Control Party) appoint, or petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint, a company acceptable to such Control Party, having a net worth of not less than $5,000,000 and whose regular business includes equipment leasing or servicing, as the successor to the Manager of all or any part of the responsibilities, duties or liabilities of the Manager with respect to such Series under the Management Agreement and the other Transaction Documents to which it is a party.

Section 907 Resignation and Removal of the Indenture Trustee. The Indenture Trustee may at any time resign and be discharged from the trusts hereby created by giving written notice thereof to the Issuer, the Manager, the Transition Agent and the Noteholders. Upon receiving such notice of resignation, the Issuer shall promptly appoint a successor trustee by written instrument, in duplicate, one copy of which instrument shall be delivered to the resigning Indenture Trustee, the Transition Agent and one copy to the successor Indenture Trustee. If no successor Indenture Trustee shall have been so appointed and have accepted appointment within 30 days after the giving of such notice of resignation, the Requisite Global Majority may appoint a successor Indenture Trustee or, if it does not do so within 30 days thereafter, the resigning Indenture Trustee may petition at the expense of the Issuer any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor Indenture Trustee, which successor Indenture Trustee shall meet the eligibility standards set forth in Section 906. If at any time the Indenture Trustee shall cease to be eligible in accordance with the provisions of Section 906 hereof and shall fail to resign after written request therefor by the Issuer, or if at any time the Indenture Trustee shall become incapable of acting, or shall be adjudged a bankrupt or insolvent, or a receiver of the Indenture Trustee or of its property shall be appointed, or any public officer shall take charge or control of the Indenture Trustee or of its property or affairs for the purpose of rehabilitation, conservation or liquidation, then the Issuer shall remove the Indenture Trustee and appoint a successor Indenture Trustee by written instrument, in duplicate, one copy of which instrument shall be delivered to the Indenture Trustee so removed and one copy to the successor Indenture Trustee. If no successor Indenture Trustee shall have been so appointed and have accepted appointment within 30 days after such removal, the Requisite Global Majority may appoint a successor Indenture Trustee or, if it does not do so within 30 days after such resignation or removal, the departing Indenture Trustee may petition at the expense of the Issuer any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor Indenture Trustee, which successor Indenture Trustee shall meet the eligibility standards set forth in Section 906. In addition, the Issuer may, with the consent of the Requisite Global Majority, remove the Indenture Trustee for cause and appoint a successor Indenture Trustee with prior written notice by written instrument, in duplicate, one copy of which instrument shall be delivered to the Indenture Trustee so removed and one copy to the successor Indenture Trustee. Any resignation or removal of the Indenture Trustee and appointment of a successor Indenture Trustee pursuant to any of the provisions of this Section shall become effective upon acceptance of appointment by the successor Indenture Trustee as provided in Section 908 hereof. Section 908 Successor Indenture Trustee. Any successor Indenture Trustee appointed as provided in Section 907 hereof shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Issuer and to its predecessor Indenture Trustee an instrument accepting such appointment hereunder, and thereupon the resignation or removal of the predecessor Indenture Trustee shall become effective and such successor Indenture Trustee, without any further act, deed or conveyance, shall become fully vested with all the rights, powers, duties and obligations of its predecessor hereunder, with like effect as if originally named as the Indenture Trustee herein. The predecessor Indenture Trustee shall upon payment of all charges due it, its agents and counsel deliver to the successor Indenture Trustee all documents relating to the Collateral, if any, delivered to it, together with any amount remaining in each Revenue Reserve Account, each Restricted Cash Account and any other Series ###-###-#### 20654080


 
Accounts for such Series. In addition, the predecessor Indenture Trustee and, upon request of the successor Indenture Trustee, the Issuer shall execute and deliver such instruments and do such other things as may reasonably be required for more fully and certainly vesting and confirming in the successor Indenture Trustee all such rights, powers, duties and obligations. No successor Indenture Trustee shall accept appointment as provided in this Section unless at the time of such acceptance such successor Indenture Trustee shall be eligible under the provisions of Section 906 hereof and shall be acceptable to the Requisite Global Majority. Upon acceptance of appointment by a successor Indenture Trustee as provided in this Section, the Issuer shall mail notice of the succession of such Indenture Trustee hereunder to all Noteholders at their addresses as shown in the registration books maintained by the Indenture Trustee. If the Issuer fails to mail such notice within ten (10) days after acceptance of appointment by the successor Indenture Trustee, the successor Indenture Trustee shall cause such notice to be mailed at the expense of the Issuer. Section 909 Merger or Consolidation of the Indenture Trustee. Any corporation into which the Indenture Trustee may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated, or any corporation resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Indenture Trustee shall be a party, or any corporation succeeding to the business of the Indenture Trustee, shall be the successor of the Indenture Trustee hereunder, provided such corporation shall be eligible under the provisions of Section 906 hereof, without the execution or filing of any paper or any further act on the part of any of the parties hereto, anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding. Section 910 Separate Indenture Trustees, Co-Indenture Trustees and Custodians. If the Indenture Trustee is not capable of acting for jurisdictional purposes, it shall have the power from time to time to appoint one or more Persons or corporations to act either as co-trustees jointly with the Indenture Trustee, or as separate trustees, or as custodians, for the purpose of holding title to, foreclosing or otherwise taking action with respect to any of the Collateral, when such separate trustee or co-trustee is necessary or advisable under any Applicable Laws or for the purpose of otherwise conforming to any legal requirement, restriction or condition in any applicable jurisdiction. The separate trustees, co-trustees, or custodians so appointed shall be trustees, co- trustees, or custodians for the benefit of all Noteholders and shall have such powers, rights and remedies as shall be specified in the instrument of appointment; provided, however, that no such appointment shall, or shall be deemed to, constitute the appointee an agent of the Indenture Trustee and the Indenture Trustee shall not have any liability relating to such appointment. The Issuer shall join in any such appointment, but such joining shall not be necessary for the effectiveness of such appointment. Every separate trustee, co-trustee and custodian shall, to the extent permitted by law, be appointed and act subject to the following provisions and conditions: (i) all powers, duties, obligations and rights conferred upon the Indenture Trustee in respect of the receipt, custody and payment of moneys shall be exercised solely by the Indenture Trustee; 39 ###-###-#### 20654080


 
(ii) all other rights, powers, duties and obligations conferred or imposed upon the Indenture Trustee shall be conferred or imposed upon and exercised or performed by the Indenture Trustee and such separate trustee, co-trustee, or custodian jointly, except to the extent that under any law of any jurisdiction in which any particular act or acts are to be performed the Indenture Trustee shall be incompetent or unqualified to perform such act or acts, in which event such rights, powers, duties and obligations (including the holding of title to the Collateral or any portion thereof in any such jurisdiction) shall be exercised and performed by such separate trustee, co-trustee or custodian; (iii) no trustee, co-trustee, separate trustee or custodian hereunder shall be personally liable by reason of any act or omission of any other trustee, co-trustee, separate trustee or custodian hereunder; and (iv) the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee may at any time accept the resignation of or remove any separate trustee, co-trustee or custodian so appointed by it or them if such resignation or removal does not violate the other terms of this Indenture. Any notice, request or other writing given to the Indenture Trustee shall be deemed to have been given to each of the then separate trustees and co-trustees, as effectively as if given to each of them. Every instrument appointing any separate trustee, co-trustee, or custodian shall refer to this Indenture and the conditions of this Article. Each separate trustee and co-trustee, upon its acceptance of the trusts conferred, shall be vested with the estates or property specified in its instrument of appointment, either jointly with the Indenture Trustee or separately, as may be provided therein, subject to all the provisions of this Indenture, specifically including every provision of this Indenture relating to the conduct of, affecting the liability of, or affording protection to, the Indenture Trustee. Every such instrument shall be furnished to the Indenture Trustee. Any separate trustee, co-trustees, or custodian may, at any time, constitute the Indenture Trustee, its agent or attorney-in-fact, with full power and authority, to the extent not prohibited by law, to do any lawful act under or in respect of this Indenture on its behalf and in its name. If any separate trustee, co-trustee, or custodian shall die, become incapable of acting, resign or be removed, all of its estates, properties, rights, remedies and trusts shall vest in and be exercised by the Indenture Trustee, to the extent permitted by law, without the appointment of a new or successor trustee or custodian. No separate trustee, co-trustee or custodian hereunder shall be required to meet the terms of eligibility as a successor trustee under Section 906 hereof and no notice to Noteholders of the appointment thereof shall be required under Section 908 hereof. The Indenture Trustee agrees to instruct the co-trustees, if any, to the extent necessary to fulfill the Indenture Trustee’s obligations hereunder. Section 911 Representations and Warranties. The Indenture Trustee hereby represents and warrants as of each Series Issuance Date of each Series that: (a) Organization and Good Standing.
