- 4 -
(c) Sales Tax. All sales, property, use, transfer or other similar taxes due and payable upon the purchase of the Exchange Note will be paid or provided for by the Depositor.

Section 2.5 Other Adverse Claims or Interests.

Section 3.1 Transfers Intended as Sale; Security Interest.
(a) Each of the parties hereto expressly intends and agrees that the transfers contemplated and effected under this Agreement are complete and absolute sales and contributions rather than pledges or assignments of only a security interest and shall be given effect as such for all purposes. The sale and contribution of the Exchange Note shall be reflected on the Depositor’s balance sheet and other financial statements as a sale and contribution of assets by the Depositor. The sale and contribution by the Depositor of the Exchange Note hereunder are and shall be without recourse to, or representation or warranty (express or implied) by, the Depositor, except as otherwise specifically provided herein. The limited rights of recourse specified herein against the Depositor are intended to provide a remedy for breach of representations and warranties relating to the condition of the property sold, rather than to the collectibility of underlying indebtedness, and therefore are intended to be consistent with warranties ordinarily given by a seller of goods under Article 2 of the UCC.
(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that the Exchange Note is held to be property of the Depositor, or if for any reason this Agreement is held or deemed to create a security interest in the Exchange Note, then it is intended that:
- 5 -
(i) This Agreement shall be deemed to be a security agreement within the meaning of Articles 8 and 9 of the New York UCC and the UCC of any other applicable jurisdiction;
(ii) The conveyance provided for in Section 2.1 shall be deemed to be a grant by the Depositor to the Buyer of a security interest in all of its right (including the power to convey title thereto), title and interest, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, in and to the Exchange Note, to secure the performance of the obligations of the Depositor hereunder;
(iii) The possession by the Buyer or its agent of the Exchange Note shall be deemed to be “possession by the secured party” or possession by the purchaser or a Person designated by such purchaser, for purposes of perfecting the security interest pursuant to the New York UCC and the UCC of any other applicable jurisdiction; and
(iv) Notifications to Persons holding such property, and acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from Persons holding such property, shall be deemed to be notifications to, or acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from, bailees or agents (as applicable) of the Buyer for the purpose of perfecting such security interest under Applicable Law.
Section 3.2 Specific Performance. Either party may enforce specific performance of this Agreement.
Section 3.3 Notices, Etc. All notices and other communications provided for hereunder shall, unless otherwise stated herein, be in writing (including facsimile communication or electronic mail) and shall be personally delivered or sent by certified mail, postage prepaid, or by facsimile or by electronic mail (if designated by a party to the other parties), to the intended party at the address, facsimile number or electronic mail address of such party set forth under its name on the signature pages hereof or at such other address, facsimile number or electronic mail address as shall be designated by such party in a written notice to the other parties hereto. All such notices and communications shall be effective (a) if personally delivered or sent by electronic mail, when received, (b) if sent by certified mail, three Business Days after having been deposited in the mail, postage prepaid, (c) if sent by overnight courier, one Business Day after having been given to such courier, and (d) if transmitted by facsimile, when sent, receipt confirmed by telephone or electronic means. Notwithstanding the foregoing, with the consent of the appropriate party to this Agreement, the obligations of World Omni and any Affiliate of World Omni to deliver or provide any demand, delivery, notice, communication or instruction to such party other than a Noteholder shall be satisfied by World Omni or such Affiliate, as the case may be, making such demand, delivery, notice, communication or instruction available at https://via.intralinks.com/, or such other website or distribution service or provider as World Omni or such Affiliate, as applicable, shall designate by written notice to the other parties hereto.
Section 3.4 CHOICE OF LAW. THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INTERNAL, SUBSTANTIVE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK WITHOUT REFERENCE TO THE RULES THEREOF RELATING TO CONFLICTS OF LAW AND THE OBLIGATIONS, RIGHTS AND REMEDIES OF THE PARTIES HEREUNDER SHALL BE DETERMINED IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH LAWS.
- 6 -
Section 3.5 Counterparts; Electronic Signatures. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which so executed shall be deemed to be an original, but all of such counterparts shall together constitute but one and the same instrument. Each of the parties agree that this Agreement and any other documents to be delivered in connection herewith may be electronically signed, that any digital or electronic signatures (including pdf, facsimile or electronically imaged signatures provided by DocuSign or any other digital signature provider) appearing on this Agreement or such other documents are the same as handwritten signatures for the purposes of validity, enforceability and admissibility, and that delivery of any such electronic signature to, or a signed copy of, this Agreement and such other documents may be made by facsimile, email or other electronic transmission.
Section 3.6 Amendment.
(a) Any term or provision of this Agreement may be amended by the Depositor without the consent of the Indenture Trustee, any Noteholder or the Buyer; provided that (i) any amendment that materially and adversely affects the interests of the Noteholders shall require the consent of Noteholders evidencing not less than a majority of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Controlling Class and (ii) any amendment that materially and adversely affects the interests of the Certificateholders, the Indenture Trustee or the Buyer shall require the prior written consent of the Persons whose interests are materially and adversely affected. An amendment shall be deemed not to materially and adversely affect the interests of the Noteholders if the Rating Agency Condition is satisfied with respect to such amendment.

(c) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, any term or provision of this Agreement may be amended by the Depositor without the consent of any of the Buyer, the Noteholders or any other Person to add, modify or eliminate any provisions as may be necessary or advisable in order to comply with or obtain more favorable treatment under or with respect to any law or regulation or any accounting rule or principle (whether now or in the future in effect); it being a condition to any such amendment that the Rating Agency Condition shall have been satisfied.
- 7 -
(d) It shall not be necessary for the consent of any Person pursuant to this Section for such Person to approve the particular form of any proposed amendment, but it shall be sufficient if such Person consents to the substance thereof.
(e) Prior to the execution of any amendment to this Agreement, the Depositor shall provide each Rating Agency with written notice of the substance of such amendment. No later than 10 Business Days after the execution of any amendment to this Agreement, the Depositor shall furnish a copy of such amendment to each Rating Agency, the Issuing Entity, the Owner Trustee, and the Indenture Trustee.

Section 3.7 Waivers. No failure or delay on the part of the Buyer, the Closed-End Servicer, the Depositor or the Indenture Trustee in exercising any power or right hereunder (to the extent such Person has any power or right hereunder) shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such power or right preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other power or right.

No waiver or approval under this Agreement shall require any similar or dissimilar waiver or approval thereafter to be granted hereunder.

There are no unwritten agreements among the parties.

If any one or more of the covenants, agreements, provisions or terms of this Agreement shall be for any reason whatsoever held invalid, then such covenants, agreements, provisions or terms shall be deemed severable from the remaining covenants, agreements, provisions or terms of this Agreement and shall in no way affect the validity or enforceability of the other provisions of this Agreement.
Section 3.10 Binding Effect; Assignability. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Buyer and the Depositor and their respective successors and permitted assigns. The Depositor may not assign any of its rights hereunder or any interest herein without the prior written consent of the Buyer, except as otherwise herein specifically provided.

PERFECTION REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND COVENANTS
In addition to the representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Exchange Note Transfer Agreement, the Depositor hereby represents, warrants, and covenants to the Buyer as follows on the Closing Date:
1. The Exchange Note Transfer Agreement creates a valid and continuing security interest (as defined in the applicable UCC) in the Exchange Note in favor of the Buyer, which security interest is prior to all other Adverse Claims and is enforceable as such as against creditors of and purchasers from the Depositor.
2. The Exchange Note constitutes a “general intangible,” “instrument,” “certificated security,” or “tangible chattel paper,” within the meaning of the applicable UCC.
3.
