Section 8.    Indemnification by Sellers. Each Seller shall, and hereby does, indemnify, defend and hold harmless each Buyer and, if applicable, its respective members, partners, shareholders, officers, directors, employees and representatives (the “Buyer Indemnified Parties”) for any Losses (as defined below) imposed upon or incurred by the Buyer Indemnified Parties (whether directly or indirectly) that results from or arises out of a breach by such Seller of any of its obligations, representations or warranties set forth in the Transaction Documents (including any exhibits thereto). “Loss” or “Losses” means any and all actual losses, liabilities, damages, taxes, claims, interest, awards, judgments, penalties, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) suffered or incurred (but excluding (i) any consequential, remote or speculative damages which are not the reasonably foreseeable result of the applicable breach or inaccuracy giving rise to such damages, (ii) any punitive or exemplary damages, and (iii) any damages for lost profits; provided, that the foregoing exclusions shall not include damages payable to a third party). No Seller shall

7




be required to indemnify any Buyer Indemnified Party, and shall not have any liability under this Section 8, in excess of the Purchase Price payable to such Seller.
Section 9.    Indemnification by Buyer. Each Buyer shall, and hereby does, indemnify, defend and hold harmless each Seller and, if applicable, its respective members, partners, shareholders, officers, directors, employees and representatives (the “Seller Indemnified Parties”) for any Losses imposed upon or incurred by the Seller Indemnified Parties (whether directly or indirectly) that results from or arises out of a breach by such Buyer of any of its obligations, representations or warranties set forth in the Transaction Documents (including the exhibits thereto).
Section 10.    Indemnification Procedures; Escrow Funds and Escrow Release Amounts.
(a)    Third Party Claims. If a third party commences any action or makes any demand against a Seller Indemnified Party, a Buyer Indemnified Party, or a SFI Indemnified Party (as defined below in Section 11(a)) for which such party (“Indemnified Party”) is entitled to indemnification under this Agreement, such Indemnified Party will promptly notify the other party (“Indemnifying Party”) in writing of such action or demand; provided, however, that if the Indemnified Party assumes the defense of the action and fails to provide prompt notice to the Indemnifying Party, such failure shall not limit in any way the Indemnifying Party’s obligation to indemnify the Indemnified Party except to the extent that such failure materially prejudices the Indemnifying Party’s ability to defend the action. The Indemnifying Party may, at its own expense and without limiting its obligation to indemnify the Indemnified Party, participate in the defense of such action with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party, or the Indemnifying Party may, at its own expense and without limiting its obligation to indemnify the Indemnified Party, assume the defense of such action with counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party. In any event, the Party that has assumed the defense of such action shall provide the other Party with copies of all notices, pleadings, and other papers filed or served in such action. Neither Party shall make any settlement or adjustment without the other Party’s prior written consent, which consent (i) in the case of the Indemnifying Party will not be unreasonably withheld in the event the settlement or adjustment involves only the payment of money damages by the Indemnifying Party and (ii) in the case of the Indemnified Party will not be unreasonably withheld; provided that such consent may be withheld if the settlement or adjustment involves performance or admission by the Indemnified Party.
(b)    Other Claims. In the event any Indemnified Party has a claim against any Indemnifying Party under Section 8, Section 9 or Section 11 that does not involve a third party claim, the Indemnified Party shall deliver notice of such claim to the Indemnifying Party (setting forth in reasonable detail the facts giving rise to such claim (to the extent known by the Indemnified Party) and the amount or estimated amount (to the extent reasonably estimable) of Losses arising out of, involving or otherwise in respect of such claim) with reasonable promptness after becoming aware of such claim; provided, however, that failure to give such notification shall not affect the indemnification provided hereunder except to the extent the Indemnifying Party shall have been actually and materially prejudiced as a result of such failure. If the Indemnifying Party does not notify the Indemnified Party within 14 days following its receipt of such notice that the Indemnifying

8




Party disputes its liability to the Indemnified Party under Section 8 or Section 9, such claim specified by the Indemnified Party in such notice shall be conclusively deemed a liability of the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnifying Party shall pay the amount of such liability to the Indemnified Party on demand or, in the case of any notice in which the amount of the claim (or any portion thereof) is estimated, on such later date when the amount of such claim (or such portion thereof) becomes finally determined.
(c)    Survival. The representations and warranties contained in the Transaction Documents shall survive the Closing for a period of two (2) years or, in the case of the Fundamental Representations, twenty (20) years, after which time such representations and warranties shall terminate and the parties shall have no rights or remedies thereafter with respect to the any breach of such representations or warranties. “Fundamental Representations” means the representations and warranties set forth in Section 5(a)-(d), Section 6(a), Section 6(b), Section 6(i) and Section 7(d). Each indemnity in this Agreement is a continuing obligation, separate and independent from the other obligations of the parties and survives termination of this Agreement, and it is not necessary for an Indemnified Party to incur expense or make payment before enforcing a right of indemnity conferred by this Agreement.
(d)    Escrow Funds and Escrow Release Amounts.
(i)    Buyers shall have the right to notify the Escrow Agent of any claim for indemnification made by any Buyer Indemnified Party pursuant to this Section 10. Promptly following the final determination in accordance with this Section 10 of any claim for indemnification made by any Buyer Indemnified Party pursuant to this Section 10, upon request by Buyers, each Seller shall execute and deliver a certificate requesting the Escrow Agent to deliver by wire transfer to an account designated by Buyers immediately available funds from the Escrow Funds in the amount of such claim as finally determined (not to exceed the Escrowed Funds). The right to receive such distributions from the Escrowed Funds shall not be the sole, first or exclusive source for indemnification of the Buyer Indemnified Parties under this Section 10 and shall be in addition to any other remedies available hereunder or under applicable law, and Buyer Indemnified Parties shall not be required to make claims for indemnification against any Escrowed Funds.
(ii)    On the date that is fifteen (15) days following the end of the period commencing on the Closing Date and ending on the five year anniversary of the Closing Date (the “Applicable Period”) (or, if such date is not a business day, the first business day following such date) (the “Escrow Release Date”), Buyers and Sellers shall execute and deliver a certificate requesting the Escrow Agent to deliver the Escrow Release Amount (as defined in Section 10(f) below) payable to Sellers and/or Buyers, as applicable, from the Escrowed Funds then held by the Escrow Agent by wire transfer to one or more accounts designated by Sellers and/or Buyers, as applicable; provided, however, that if prior to the Escrow Release Date, Buyers notify Sellers and the Escrow Agent in writing that all or a portion of the Escrowed Funds is subject to claims for indemnification under this Agreement that have not

9




been finally determined (the “Outstanding Claims”), the amount delivered to Sellers upon the Escrow Release Date shall be equal to an amount, not less than zero nor greater than the Escrowed Funds, equal to (A) the Escrow Release Amount payable to Sellers minus (B) the sum of all amounts subject to the Outstanding Claims at such time. If at any time after any Escrow Release Date (x) the amount of the Escrowed Funds then held by the Escrow Agent exceeds the sum of all amounts subject to the Outstanding Claims at such time (the “Excess Amount”), then Sellers and Buyers shall execute and deliver a certificate requesting the Escrow Agent to deliver the Excess Amount at such time to Sellers by wire transfer to one or more accounts designated by Sellers.
(iii)    On the date that no Outstanding Claims remain, but not prior to the Escrow Release Date, after giving effect to all payments required to be made pursuant to Section 10(d)(ii) above, if any Escrowed Funds remain, then Sellers and Buyers shall execute and deliver a certificate requesting the Escrow Agent to deliver the Escrowed Funds by wire transfer to one or more accounts designated by Buyers.
(e)    Aggregate Gross Cash Flow Calculation. Promptly following the end of the Applicable Period but in any event no later than the Escrow Release Date, Buyers shall deliver a copy of their calculation of the Aggregate Gross Cash Flow (as defined in Section 10(f) below) and supporting documentation to Sellers. If Sellers dispute the calculation of the Aggregate Gross Cash Flow, Buyers shall make available to Sellers and their representatives, upon reasonable advance notice and during normal business hours, all books, records, financial statements, work papers and schedules related to the SpringCastle Companies and Company Related Entities as may be necessary to verify the calculations. Any dispute regarding the calculation of the Aggregate Gross Cash Flow shall be resolved in the following manner:
(i)
Sellers, within 21 days after receipt of the calculation of the Aggregate Gross Cash Flow, shall notify Buyers in writing of any such dispute, which notice shall specify in reasonable detail the nature of the dispute;
(ii)
During the 10-day period following Buyers’ receipt of such notice, Sellers and Buyers shall attempt to resolve such dispute and to determine the appropriate calculation of the Aggregate Gross Cash Flow, as applicable; and
(iii)
If at the end of the 10-day period specified in clause (ii) above, Sellers and Buyers shall have failed to reach a written agreement with respect to such dispute or Sellers have not withdrawn their objection, the matter shall be referred to KPMG LLP (the “Independent Accounting Firm”); provided that, if such firm is unable or unwilling to act, the Independent Accounting Firm shall be any other independent public accounting firm as is designated in writing by Sellers and Buyers. The Independent Accounting Firm shall act as an expert, not as an arbitrator, and shall be directed by Sellers and Buyers to resolve such dispute (based solely on the presentations by Sellers and Buyers) as promptly as reasonably practicable and to deliver a written report to each Seller and each Buyer setting forth its resolution of such dispute. The

10




calculations of the Aggregate Gross Cash Flow as agreed to by Buyers and Sellers or determined by the Independent Accounting Firm, shall be final and binding on Buyers and Sellers. Each of the parties to any dispute shall bear its costs and expenses incurred in connection with such dispute, except that the fees and expenses of the Independent Accounting Firm shall be borne either by Buyers, on the one hand, or by Sellers, on the other hand, based on which Party’s estimate of the Aggregate Gross Cash Flow was farthest from that determined by the Independent Accounting Firm. Within five (5) days after the final determination of the Aggregate Gross Cash Flow, if an Escrow Release Amount is to be distributed to Buyers and/or Sellers, Buyers and Sellers shall direct Escrow Agent to release such Escrow Funds, in the manner specified in Section 10(d)(ii).

(h)    Tax Treatment for Indemnification. For U.S. federal income tax purposes, Buyers and Sellers agree to treat any indemnification payments made under this Agreement as an adjustment to the applicable Purchase Price paid from the applicable Buyer to the applicable Seller.
Section 11.    Additional Covenants.
(a)    SFI Sponsor Support. Buyers and the Other Members acknowledge that certain Affiliates of Sellers currently provide certain indemnification and other payments in connection with the Debt Financing and Debt Refinancing entered into by the SpringCastle Companies and their subsidiaries. To the extent that (i) SFI is required, on behalf of a SpringCastle Company or any of its subsidiaries, to repurchase a Loan in connection with a breach of any representation or warranty made in the Loan Purchase Agreement, (ii) SFI advances any amounts to fund revolving draws pursuant to the Servicing Agreement, (iii) SFI is required to make any payment to the Indenture Trustee or otherwise perform any obligation on behalf of any Purchaser Entity under the Performance Support Agreement, or (iv) SFI is required to make any payment to WTNA under the separate letter indemnity agreement between SFI and WTNA (the “WTNA Agreement”) in connection with WTNA acting as loan trustee to each SpringCastle Company (each of such clauses (i) to (iv), a “SFI Sponsor Support”), (A) each of the NRZ Parties shall, and hereby does (and shall cause each SpringCastle Company to), on a joint and several basis, indemnify, defend and hold harmless SFI and, if applicable, its respective members, partners, shareholders, officers, directors, employees and representatives (the “SFI Indemnified Parties”) for 50% of any Losses

12




imposed upon or incurred by the SFI Indemnified Parties (whether directly or indirectly, but without duplication) that results from or arises out of any SFI Sponsor Support that occurs after the Closing Date and (B) each of the Blackstone Parties shall, and hereby does (and shall cause each SpringCastle Company to), on a several, not joint basis, based on the portion of the Aggregate Purchase Price paid by such Buyer, indemnify, defend and hold harmless the SFI Indemnified Parties for any Losses imposed upon or incurred by the SFI Indemnified Parties (whether directly or indirectly, but without duplication) that results from or arises out of any SFI Sponsor Support that occurs after the Closing Date. “NRZ Parties” means the NRZ Buyers and each Other Member that is an Affiliate of the NRZ Buyers. “Blackstone Parties” means the Blackstone Buyers and each Other Member that is an Affiliate of the Blackstone Buyers.
(b)    Amendments to SFI Sponsor Support. So long as any obligation of SFI to provide SFI Sponsor Support shall remain outstanding, (i) Buyers shall not consent to, and shall cause each SpringCastle Company not to consent to, any amendment to the Indenture, the Note Purchase Agreement, any Loan Purchase Agreement, any Loan Trust Agreement, the Performance Support Agreement, the limited liability company agreement of any Purchaser SPV or the Administration Agreement among the Purchaser Entities and SFI (the “Administration Agreement”) without the prior written consent of SFI, which consent may be withheld in SFI’s sole and absolute discretion, if such amendment could reasonably be expected to (x) have a material adverse effect on SFI or its SFI Sponsor Support obligations (provided that, for the avoidance of doubt, removal of SFI as servicer in accordance with the terms of Servicing Agreement and the other Transaction Documents shall not be deemed to constitute a material adverse effect on SFI or its SFI Sponsor Support obligations) or (y) increase the costs or duties or responsibilities of SFI in any material respect, and (ii) Buyers shall not enter into any refinancing of the Indebtedness of any SpringCastle Company or Company Related Entity without causing each SFI Sponsor Support or the Administrative Agreement to be terminated in connection with such refinancing.
(c)    Adjustments to Escrow Release Amounts. In the event of any change in the servicing standard under the Servicing Agreement or the 2016 Servicing Agreement in effect on the Closing Date as required or consented to by the SpringCastle Companies that causes a material negative impact on the amount of the Aggregate Gross Cash Flow, then Buyers and Sellers will in good faith make an equitable adjustment to the terms of the Escrow Release Amount and the Aggregate Gross Cash Flow in order to take into account such changes; provided, that no such equitable adjustment shall result in any acceleration of the Escrow Release Date. If Sellers and Buyers shall have failed to reach a written agreement with respect to any dispute regarding such adjustment, the matter shall be referred to the Independent Accounting Firm. The Independent Accounting Firm shall act as an expert, not as an arbitrator, and shall be directed by Sellers and Buyers to resolve such dispute (based solely on the presentations by Sellers and Buyers) as promptly as reasonably practicable and to deliver a written report to each Seller and Buyers setting forth its resolution of such dispute. The adjustment as determined by the Independent Accounting Firm, shall be final and binding on Buyers and Sellers. Each of the parties to any dispute shall bear its costs and expenses incurred in connection with such dispute, except that the fees and expenses of the Independent Accounting Firm shall be borne either by Buyers or by Sellers, based on which Party’s adjustment was farthest from that determined by the Independent Accounting Firm.

13




(d)    Post-Closing Cooperation. Sellers and Buyers shall cooperate with each other, and shall cause their Affiliates and their respective officers, employees and agents to cooperate with each other, for a period of 90 days after the Closing Date to ensure the orderly transition of each SpringCastle Company from Sellers to Buyers and to minimize any disruption to the SpringCastle Companies and the other respective businesses of Sellers and Buyers that might result from the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. Upon request and at the direction of the NRZ Buyers, on behalf of each SpringCastle Company, for a period of 90 days after the Closing Date, each Seller shall provide to the SpringCastle Companies administrative services in type, nature and scope consistent with the administrative services provided by such Seller (in its capacity as managing member of any SpringCastle Company) to the SpringCastle Companies prior to the date hereof; provided, that NRZ Buyers, in their respective capacities as the applicable managing members of each SpringCastle Company at and following the Closing, shall make all decisions and exercise management control of each SpringCastle Company, and no assistance provided by Sellers or its Affiliates pursuant to this Section 11(d) shall constitute any control by such Seller or its Affiliates. After the Closing Date, upon reasonable written notice, each Seller and Buyer shall furnish or cause to be furnished to each other and their Affiliates and their respective officers, employees and agents access, during normal business hours, to such information and assistance relating to the SpringCastle Companies (to the extent within the control of such Party) as is reasonably necessary for financial reporting and accounting purposes. Buyers shall reimburse Sellers for reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred in connection with Sellers’ provision of administrative services to the SpringCastle Companies pursuant to this Section 11(d) to the same extent that the SpringCastle Companies were obligated, pursuant to their applicable LLC Agreement, to reimburse Sellers (in their respective capacities as managing members of the applicable SpringCastle Companies prior to the date hereof) for expenses incurred in connection with the provision of such administrative services prior to the date hereof. Sellers shall reimburse Buyers for reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred in assisting Sellers pursuant to this Section 11(d). No Party shall be required by this Section 11(d) to take any action that would unreasonably interfere with the conduct of the business of such Party or its Affiliates or unreasonably disrupt the normal operations of such Party or its Affiliates. For the avoidance of doubt, any information relating to any SpringCastle Company received by any Seller pursuant to this Section 11(d) shall be subject to Section 3.9 (Confidentiality) of each LLC Agreement as if such Seller remained a party to such LLC Agreement.
(e)    SSAE-16. SFI, as the Servicer, will provide to the NRZ Buyers a SSAE – 16 SOC 1 Type II attestation performed by an independent audit firm covering the controls surrounding all systems sourced and associated data provided to the NRZ Buyers for financial reporting as determined by SFI and NRZ Buyers by the commencement of the attestation by the independent audit firm with coverage of a minimum of nine months and a bridge letter from SFI for each year starting the year ended December 31, 2016 for so long as SFI shall be the Servicer. Such attestation shall be provided within a reasonable time after such attestation is completed each year, with reasonable time to be no later than thirty days after year end.
(f)    Non-Solicitation Obligations. So long as SFI or any of its subsidiaries is the Servicer or otherwise performing services pursuant to the Servicing Agreement and for a period of two (2) years thereafter, no Buyer or any of its Affiliates that receives or otherwise obtains any

14




Confidential Information, or any director, officer, manager or employee of any of the foregoing in their capacity as such (collectively, the “Restricted Parties”) shall (i) directly or indirectly solicit the employment or engagement of services of any person or (ii) employ, hire, contract with or otherwise engage any person, who in case of clauses (i) and (ii), is or was employed as an employee, consultant or contractor of SFI, Subservicer (as such term is defined in the Side Letter) or any of their respective subsidiaries during the term of the Servicing Agreement (the “Non-Solicitation Obligations”); provided, however, that this Section 11(f) shall not be deemed to (A) prohibit a general solicitation of employment not directed solely at an employee, consultant or contractor of SFI (including through the means of non-directed solicitations from a recruiting service), (B) prohibit a Restricted Party from hiring as an employee, contracting with or retaining as a consultant a person who has not been employed by or contracted with SFI or any Subservicer or any of their respective subsidiaries at any time during the 12 months prior to the date such Member or Affiliate hires, contracts with or retains as a consultant such person or (C) prohibit the Restricted Parties from hiring any person who responds to a general solicitation permitted hereunder or who contacts a Restricted Party on his or her own initiative without any encouragement from a Restricted Party. The obligations of the Restricted Parties under this Section 11(f) shall be binding upon any assignee of any Buyer. Each Buyer shall comply with, and shall cause its Affiliates and Restricted Parties to comply with, the Non-Solicitation Obligations.
(g)    Managing Member Expenses. The Parties agree that each Seller, as Managing Member of the applicable SpringCastle Companies, shall be entitled to be reimbursed for 53% of any fees and expenses incurred in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practice for the month ended on the Closing Date, including for any third party fees or expenses payable by the Managing Member or its Affiliates to its independent contractors providing services to the applicable SpringCastle Company, in each case to the same extent that the Managing Members of the SpringCastle Companies were entitled to reimbursement for such fees and expenses pursuant to the LLC Agreements immediately prior to the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby. Such reimbursed expenses shall be allocated among the Other Members based on its respective percentage ownership interest in the applicable SpringCastle Company during the applicable period. Within 30 days following the date hereof, each Seller shall prepare and deliver to the NRZ Buyers on behalf of the SpringCastle Companies an invoice documenting in reasonable detail the fees and expenses for which such Seller as Managing Member requests reimbursement. Buyers shall cause the applicable SpringCastle Company to reimburse 53% of the fees and expenses incurred by the applicable Seller and reimbursable in accordance with this Section 11(g) within 30 days following delivery of the invoice by such Seller.
(h)    SFI as Administrator. SFI, as administrator under the Administration Agreement, shall be subject to oversight and direction by the SpringCastle Companies and will follow the instructions of SpringCastle Companies except to the extent contrary to law or its obligations under the Administration Agreement. Buyers and the Other Members shall cause the SpringCastle Companies to indemnify and hold harmless SFI as administrator from and against any and all Losses suffered or incurred by SFI by reason of complying with any such direction; provided that the SpringCastle Companies shall not be obligated to indemnify SFI for any Losses that arise from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of SFI or its affiliates, directors, officers, employees, partners, members, managers or agents.

15




Section 12.    Appointment of Designated Subservicer.
(a)    Appointment of Designated Servicer. Within three (3) business days following knowledge of the occurrence of a Trigger Event, SFI shall give written notice thereof to the SpringCastle Companies. Upon the occurrence of a Trigger Event (as defined below in Section 12(e), the SpringCastle Companies shall have the option, exercisable within 120 days following receipt of written notice of the occurrence of such Trigger Event, to direct SFI to use reasonable best efforts to assign all (and not less than all) of its obligations and duties as Servicer under the Servicing Agreement in accordance with Section 4.05(b) of the Servicing Agreement, as expeditiously as possible, to a new servicer as selected by the SpringCastle Companies that the SpringCastle Companies reasonably believe meets the requirements for a successor servicer under the Servicing Agreement (the “Designated Servicer”). The SpringCastle Companies and its counsel shall be given the opportunity to review and comment on applicable material documents and be given a reasonable opportunity to participate in all material communications in connection with the assignment to the Designated Servicer. In connection with the appointment of the Designated Servicer, (i) the SpringCastle Companies shall be responsible for and reimburse all fees and expenses (including consent fees) incurred by SFI, the Noteholders, the Rating Agencies, the Loan Trustees, the Paying Agent, the Indenture Trustee and the Co-Issuers (such capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meanings specified in the Servicing Agreement), including any fees and expenses of counsel for the foregoing parties, except that SFI shall be responsible for its internal costs and fees and expenses of counsel to SFI.
(b)    Replacement Subservicer. At or following the exercise of the SpringCastle Companies’ right to appoint the Designated Servicer, the SpringCastle Companies may require SFI, acting in good faith and with all deliberate speed and with the consent of the SpringCastle Companies, to appoint an servicer as the initial subservicer (the “Replacement Subservicer”) to provide all (and not less than all) servicing functions under the Servicing Agreement, giving preference and priority of consideration to subservicer candidates as proposed by the SpringCastle Companies. SFI may, acting in good faith and upon reasonable prior notice to and consultation with the SpringCastle Companies, terminate the Replacement Subservicer for reasonable cause (and no less than five business days prior to such termination, SFI will provide the SpringCastle Companies with information regarding the particular action(s) or inaction(s) giving rise to reasonable cause termination). Upon a termination of any Replacement Subservicer, SFI may appoint a substitute Replacement Subservicer, giving preference and priority of consideration to subservicer candidates as proposed by the SpringCastle Companies, subject to the SpringCastle Companies’ consent, not to be unreasonably withheld.
(c)    Cooperation on Transfer of Servicing. From the date of notice of any exercise of the right to appoint a Designated Servicer, SFI will work cooperatively with the SpringCastle Companies and the Designated Servicer and the Replacement Subservicer, as applicable, on the transition of services provided under the Servicing Agreement in order to enable the proper and uninterrupted continuation of service of the loan portfolio by the Designated Servicer and the Replacement Subservicer, as applicable. Without limitation, SFI will promptly assemble and make available to the Designated Servicer and the Replacement Subservicer such information and access to such SFI personnel as is customary for the transfer of the servicing of a loan portfolio to a successor

16




servicer, so long as disclosure of such information is not prohibited by law and such access to personnel shall not unreasonably interfere with SFI’s ordinary course of business. The subservicing agreement with the Replacement Subservicer shall include a requirement of cooperation on the transition of services from the Replacement Subservicer that is substantially similar to the immediately preceding two sentences.
(d)    Compensation of Replacement Subservicer. SFI will be responsible for any subservicing fees payable to the Replacement Subservicer up to but not exceeding the Servicing Fee (as defined in the Servicing Agreement), or any portion thereof, actually received by SFI. To the extent that the subservicing fee of the Replacement Subservicer is less than the Servicing Fee, the SpringCastle Companies shall be entitled to such difference. The SpringCastle Companies (i) will be responsible for any subservicing fees payable to the Replacement Subservicer in excess of the Servicing Fee, and SFI will not be required to pay any such excess amount to the Replacement Subservicer, and (ii) will be responsible for any expense or advance reimbursement payable to the Replacement Subservicer, and SFI will not be responsible for any such reimbursement payable to the Replacement Subservicer. For each month after the appointment of the Replacement Subservicer, SFI shall be entitled to receive from the SpringCastle Companies a monthly fee (payable at the same time as the Servicing Fee) equal to (x) the product of 25 basis points per annum and the aggregate Loan Principal Balance of all Loans as of the first date of the related Collection Period or (y) if reasonable market compensation for subservicing services (and the fee payable to Replacement Subservicer) is greater than the Servicing Fee, the product of 12.5 basis points per annum and the aggregate Loan Principal Balance of all Loans as of the first date of the related Collection Period (such capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meanings specified in the Indenture).
(e)    Definitions.

For reference, the amount of Charged Off Loans as reflected in the remittance report delivered March 25, 2016 is $(9,963,026.41).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Party hereto may commence a Proceeding with any Governmental Entity anywhere in the world for the sole purpose of seeking recognition and enforcement of a judgment of any court referred to in the preceding sentence. Each of the parties further agrees that service of any process, summons, notice or document by U.S. registered mail to such Party’s respective address set forth above shall be effective service of process for Proceeding in New York with respect to any matters to which it has submitted to jurisdiction as set forth above in this Section 16(a).

20




(c)    Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed by the parties hereto in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original but all of which together shall constitute but one and the same instrument.

(d)    Amendments. This Agreement shall not be amended, modified or supplemented except by a written instrument signed by an authorized representative of each of the parties hereto.
(e)    Partial Invalidity. Wherever possible, each provision hereof shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but in case any one or more of the provisions contained herein shall, for any reason, be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such provision shall be ineffective to the extent, but only to the extent, of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability without invalidating the remainder of such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision or provisions or any other provisions hereof, unless such a construction would be unreasonable.

21




commercially reasonable efforts to give the other Party advance opportunity to review and comment on such release or announcement.
