NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the promises and the mutual agreements contained herein and in the Agreement, the parties hereto agree as follows:
SECTION 1.Definitions. All capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein are used herein as defined in the Agreement.
SECTION 2. Amendments to the Agreement. The Agreement is hereby amended as follows:
(a)Section 1.10 of the Agreement is amended by adding the following new clause (f) at the end thereof:
(f) This Section 1.10 of the Agreement provides a mechanism for determining an alternative rate of interest in the event that the London interbank offered rate is no longer available or in certain other circumstances. The Administrator does not warrant or accept any responsibility for and shall not have any liability with respect to, the administration, submission or any other matter related to the London interbank offered rate or other rates in the definition of LMIR or with respect to any alternative or successor rate thereto, or replacement rate therefor.
(b)The defined term “Federal Funds Rate” set forth in Exhibit I to the Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and the following new defined term is inserted in the appropriate alphabetical order:
“Overnight Bank Funding Rate” means for any day, the rate comprised of both overnight federal funds and overnight eurocurrency borrowings by U.S.-managed banking offices of depository institutions, as such composite rate shall be determined by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (“NYFRB”), as set forth on its public website from time to time, and as published on the next succeeding Business Day as the overnight bank funding rate by the NYFRB (or by such other recognized electronic source (such as Bloomberg) selected by the Administrative Agent for the purpose of displaying such rate); provided, that if such day is not a Business Day, the Overnight Bank Funding Rate for such day shall be such rate on the immediately preceding Business Day; provided, further, that if such rate shall at any time, for any reason, no longer exist, a comparable replacement rate determined by the Administrator at such time (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error). If the Overnight Bank Funding Rate determined as above would be less than zero, then such rate shall be deemed to be zero. The rate of interest charged shall be adjusted as of each Business Day based on changes in the Overnight Bank Funding Rate without notice to the Seller.
(a) Clause (b) of the definition of “Base Rate” set forth in Exhibit I to the Agreement is hereby amended by deleting the reference to “the Federal Funds Rate” and substituting “the Overnight Bank Funding Rate” therefor.
(b) Clause (a) of the definition of “Eligible Receivable” set forth in Exhibit I to the Agreement is hereby amended by (i) deleting the amount “$200,000” where it appears in sub-clause (ii) thereof and substituting “five percent (5%) of the Outstanding Balance of all Receivables then in the Receivables Pool” therefor and (ii) deleting the amount “$12,500,000” where it appears in sub-clause (iv) thereof and substituting “17,500,000” therefor.
(c) Clause (a) of the definition of “Facility Termination Date” set forth in Exhibit I to the Agreement is hereby amended by replacing the date “October 25, 2019” with the date “October 23, 2020” where it appears therein.
(d) The definition of “Purchase Limit” set forth in Exhibit I to the Agreement is hereby replaced in its entirety with the following:
“Purchase Limit” means (i) at any time on or after October 25, 2019 and prior to but excluding May 1, 2020, $150,000,000 and (ii) at any time on and after May 1, 2020, $75,000,000, in each case, as such amount may be subsequently reduced pursuant to Section 1.1(b) of the Agreement; provided, that any such reduction of the Purchase Limit then in effect pursuant to clauses (i) or (ii) above, as applicable, shall automatically and permanently reduce the amount of the Purchase Limit set forth in such other clauses above in the same proportion as the percentage of the reduction of the Purchase Limit then in effect. References to the unused portion of the Purchase Limit shall mean, at any time, the Purchase Limit minus the then outstanding Capital.

(c) no Termination Event or Unmatured Termination Event has occurred, is continuing, or would occur as a result of this Amendment.
