(d) The definition of “Transferor Amount” set forth in Section 1.1 of the Pooling Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:
“Transferor Amount” means, on any date of determination, the result of (a) the aggregate amount of Principal Receivables on such day, plus the principal amount on deposit in the Excess Funding Account on such day, minus (b) the sum of the Invested Amounts (or, as to any Series that has an Adjusted Invested Amount, the Adjusted Invested Amount) with respect to all Series (but not of any Supplemental Interests) then outstanding (and of any purchased interest sold pursuant to Section 6.3(b)), plus (c) the principal amount on deposit in the Principal Accounts (as defined in the various Supplements) for each Series and Shared Principal Collections retained in the Collection Account pursuant to Section 4.4, in each case to the extent not deducted in calculating an Adjusted Invested Amount for the related Series.

(g) Section 4.2 of the Pooling Agreement is hereby amended by amending and restating the first sentence of the last paragraph thereof as follows:
“On any Business Day, the Transferor may direct the Servicer to withdraw funds on deposit in the Excess Funding Account in an amount not to exceed the lesser of (i) the amount by which the Transferor Amount exceeds the Specified Transferor Amount on such day and (ii) the amount by which the aggregate amount of Principal Receivables plus amounts on deposit in the Excess Funding Account exceeds the Required Principal Balance on such day, and pay such funds to the Transferor.”
(h) Section 4.3 of the Pooling Agreement is hereby amended by inserting in clause (c) the phrase “or the aggregate amount of Principal Receivables plus amounts on deposit in the Excess Funding Account is less than the Required Principal Balance” immediately following the phrase “Specified Transferor Amount” where it appears therein.
(i) Section 4.4 of the Pooling Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:
SECTION 4.4. Shared Principal Collections. On each Business Day, Shared Principal Collections may, at the option of Transferor, be applied (or held in the Collection Account for later application) as principal with respect to any Variable Interest or, so long as either no Series is in an Amortization Period or no Series that is in an Amortization Period will have a Principal Shortfall on the related Transfer Date (assuming no Early Amortization Event occurs), withdrawn from the Collection Account and paid to Transferor; and on each Transfer Date, (a) Servicer shall allocate Shared Principal Collections not previously so applied or paid to each applicable Principal Sharing Series, pro rata, in proportion to the Principal Shortfalls, if any, with respect to each such Series, and any remainder may, at the option of Transferor, be applied as principal with respect to any Variable Interest and (b) Servicer shall withdraw from the Collection Account and pay to Transferor any amounts representing Shared Principal Collections remaining after the allocations and applications referred to in clause (a); provided that, if, on any day the Transferor Amount (determined after giving effect to any transfer of Principal Receivables to the Trust on such day), is less than or equal to the Specified Transferor Amount, Servicer shall not distribute to Transferor any Shared Principal Collections that otherwise would be distributed to Transferor, but shall deposit such funds in the Excess Funding Account to the extent required so that the Transferor Amount equals the Specified Transferor Amount, provided further that, if on any day the aggregate amount of Principal Receivables plus amounts on deposit in the Excess Funding Account is less than the Required Principal Balance, Servicer shall, at the direction of Transferor, deposit any Shared Principal Collections that otherwise would be distributed to Transferor in the Excess Funding Account to the extent required so that the aggregate amount of Principal Receivables plus amounts on deposit in the Excess Funding Account equals the Required Principal Balance. Notwithstanding the foregoing, during any Amortization Period for any Series (other than a Variable Interest), Transferor may not apply Shared Principal Collections as principal with respect to any Variable Interest, unless such application of principal is made on any Transfer Date or related Distribution Date after the application of Shared Principal Collections pursuant to the various Supplements.
