assignment or transfer (in whole or, to the extent relevant, in part) thereof, without the consent of a third party, would, after giving effect to the Confirmation Order and the Bankruptcy Code, constitute a breach or other contravention thereof or a violation of Law to which any Seller is bound, or in any way adversely affect the rights of Sellers or, upon transfer, Buyer under such Transferred Contract, claim or right, in each case, that cannot be excused or rendered ineffective by operation of the Bankruptcy Code, the Confirmation Order, or applicable non-bankruptcy Law. Subject to Article VII, Sections 6.11 and 6.12, with respect to any Transferred Contract, if such consent is not obtained or such assignment (in whole or, to the extent relevant, in part) is not attainable pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code or the Confirmation Order, then such Transferred Contract shall not be transferred hereunder, and the Closing shall proceed with respect to the remaining Acquired Assets for the full Purchase Price and Sellers shall use their commercially reasonable efforts (at Buyer’s expense), and Buyer shall cooperate with Sellers, to obtain any such consent after the Closing.

Sellers shall promptly pay to Buyer when received all monies received by Sellers under such Transferred Contract or any claim or right or any benefit arising thereunder and Buyer shall promptly pay Sellers for all Liabilities of Sellers associated with such arrangement, if requested; provided, however, that nothing in this Section 2.6 shall entitle Buyer to reduce the Purchase Price.

(d) The Parties agree that payment of the Sellers’ Adjustment Amounts (if any) from the available amounts in the Purchase Price Escrow Account pursuant to Section 2.10, Section 2.11, Section 2.12 and Section 2.13 will be the sole and exclusive remedy and source of recovery for payment of the Sellers’ Adjustment Amounts (if any).

Section 2.14 Independent Accounting Firm. (a) As promptly as reasonably practicable, but in no event later than fifteen (15) Business Days of the date of this Agreement, Buyer and the Company shall appoint an independent certified public accounting firm in the United States of international recognition reasonably acceptable to Buyer and the Company and agreed to by them in writing (the “Independent Accounting Firm”). Buyer and the Company shall thereafter promptly negotiate, in good faith and acting reasonably, a customary initial engagement letter with such Independent Accounting Firm, so as to ensure that such Independent Accounting Firm is prepared to assist in determining the MSR Final Statement, the Advances Final Statement, the Residential Loans Final Statement or the Remaining Assets Final Statement in accordance with Section 2.10(c), Section 2.11(c), Section 2.12(c) or Section 2.13(d), as applicable, in the event of a dispute. In the event that such Independent Accounting Firm has a conflict or is unable or unwilling to serve in such role, then Buyer and the Company shall appoint a different independent certified public accounting firm in the United States of international recognition reasonably acceptable to Buyer and the Company and agreed to by them in writing, and proceed to negotiate, in good faith and acting reasonably, a customary engagement letter with such firm (such firm thereafter being referred to herein as the “Independent Accounting Firm”). (b) Buyer and the Company will execute a customary engagement letter and will cooperate with the Independent Accounting Firm during the term of its engagement. Buyer and the Company shall instruct the Independent Accounting Firm to make a final determination as promptly as practicable, and in any event within thirty (30) Business Days after its engagement, of (x) the proper amount (determined in accordance with the terms of this Agreement) of each of the line items in the Initial Statements as to which Buyer and the Company disagree as set out in the Notice of Disagreement and (y) the Party or Parties that should bear the cost of the Independent Accounting Firm’s review and determination. (c) In making its determination pursuant to this Section 2.14, the Independent Accounting Firm shall act as an expert and not as an arbitrator, base its determination solely on written presentations of Buyer and the Company and not by independent review, and limit its scope of determination to those items that are identified as items and amounts to which the Parties have been unable to agree, and whether there were mathematical errors in the Initial Statements and whether the calculations set forth therein were performed in accordance with the 40


 
Transaction Accounting Principles and in a manner consistent with the Illustrative Purchase Price Calculation and Section 2.9, Section 2.10, Section 2.11, Section 2.12, Section 2.13 and this Section 2.14. Such determination shall be final and binding on, and non-appealable by, the Parties absent manifest mathematical error. A copy of all materials submitted to the Independent Accounting Firm pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence shall be provided by Buyer or the Company, as applicable, to the other party concurrently with the submission thereof to the Independent Accounting Firm. In resolving each disputed line item, the Independent Accounting Firm shall be bound by the provisions of this Agreement and may not assign a value to any disputed line item greater than the greatest value for such line item (or less than the smallest value for such line item) claimed by Sellers in the Initial Statements or Buyer in the Notices of Disagreement, respectively. (d) The cost of the Independent Accounting Firm’s review and determination shall be allocated to and borne by Sellers, on the one hand, and Buyer, on the other hand, in proportion to the final allocation made by the Independent Accounting Firm of the disputed items weighted in relation to the claims made by Sellers and Buyer, such that the prevailing Party pays the lesser proportion of such fees, costs and expenses, as directed in the Independent Accounting Firm’s report. For example, if Sellers claim that the appropriate adjustments are $1,000 greater than the amount determined by Buyer and if the Independent Accounting Firm ultimately resolves the dispute by awarding to Sellers $300 of the $1,000 contested, then the fees, costs and expenses of the Independent Accounting Firm will be allocated 30% (i.e., 300 ÷ 1,000) to Buyer and 70% (i.e., 700 ÷ 1,000) to Sellers. During the review by the Independent Accounting Firm, Buyer and the Company and their accountants will each make available to the Independent Accounting Firm interviews with such individuals, and such information, books and records and work papers, as may be reasonably required by the Independent Accounting Firm to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement; provided, however, that the accountants of Buyer or the Company shall not be obliged to make any work papers available to the Independent Accounting Firm except in accordance with such accountants’ normal disclosure procedures and then only after such firm has signed a customary non-disclosure agreement relating to such access to work papers in form and substance reasonably acceptable to such accountants. SELLERS’ REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES Sellers represent and warrant to Buyer that the statements contained in this Article III are true and correct as of the date of this Agreement, and as of the Closing Date (except to the extent any such representations and warranties have been made as of a particular date), except as set forth in the disclosure schedule accompanying this Agreement (the “Disclosure Schedule”). Section 3.1 Organization of Sellers; Good Standing.

Section 3.3 Noncontravention; Government Filings. Neither the execution and delivery of this Agreement or any Related Agreement to which a Seller is a party, nor the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (including the assignments and assumptions referred to in Article II) or any Related Agreement to which a Seller is a party, will, as applicable, (a) conflict with or result in a breach of the organizational or governing documents of any Seller, (b) subject to the entry of the Confirmation Order, violate any Law or Decree to which any Seller is subject in respect of the Acquired Assets or Assumed Liabilities, or (c) subject to the entry of the Confirmation Order, result in a breach of, constitute a default under, result in the acceleration of, create in any party the right to accelerate, terminate, modify or cancel, create a Lien on any Acquired Asset, or require any notice under any Material Contract, except, in the case of either clause (b) or (c), for such conflicts, violations, breaches, defaults, accelerations, rights or failures to give notice as would not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be likely to have a Material Adverse Effect.

Business or prevent or materially impair or delay any Seller’s ability to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. Section 3.4 Title to Assets; Financial Statements; Absence of Certain Changes. (a) At the Closing, subject to any Permitted Liens, Sellers will have good and valid title to, or the right to use, the tangible Acquired Assets. Pursuant to the Confirmation Order, Sellers will convey such title to or rights to use, all of the tangible Acquired Assets, free and clear of all Liens to the maximum extent permitted by the Bankruptcy Code (other than Permitted Liens).

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, and subject to Section 5.3(e), Buyer, on the one hand, and Sellers, on the other hand, shall use its or their respective reasonable best efforts to promptly take and diligently pursue any or all of the following actions to the extent necessary to eliminate any concerns on the part of, or to satisfy any conditions imposed by, any Mortgage Agency or Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over the enforcement of any applicable Law, including any Antitrust Law, regarding the legality of Buyer’s acquisition of any portion of the Acquired Assets or assumption of any portion of the Assumed Liabilities: 59


 
(i) using its reasonable best efforts to prevent the entry in a judicial or administrative proceeding brought under any Law, including any Antitrust Law, by any Mortgage Agency or Governmental Authority or any other Person of any permanent, temporary, or preliminary injunction or other Decree that would make consummation of the acquisition of the Acquired Assets or the assumption of the Assumed Liabilities in accordance with the terms of this Agreement unlawful or that would prevent or delay such consummation; and (ii) using, in the event that an injunction or order has been issued as referred to in this Section 5.3, reasonable best efforts, including the appeal thereof, the posting of a bond, or the steps contemplated by this Section 5.3, necessary to vacate, modify, or suspend such injunction or order so as to permit such consummation as promptly as possible. (d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement, the Parties acknowledge and agree that the satisfaction of their respective obligations under this Section 5.3 shall not include, and none of the Parties or their Affiliates shall be required to (including in pursuit of any regulatory actions or non-actions, orders, waivers, consents, clearances, extensions and approvals necessary to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, or if any suit or other action is threatened or instituted by any Person challenging the transactions contemplated by this Agreement as violative of any applicable Law) sell, divest, dispose, license, lease, conduct in a specified manner, hold separate, discontinue, restrict or otherwise limit (or offer, negotiate, effect, or agree to, by consent decree or otherwise, any of the foregoing) any of their respective assets, liabilities, businesses, operations or interest in any assets, businesses or divisions (including any Acquired Assets or Assumed Liabilities) (each, a “Burdensome Condition”). It is understood and agreed by the Parties that Buyer being (i) required to maintain any Mortgage Loans constituting Acquired Assets on Sellers’ Platform for a material period of time following Closing (other than as contemplated by the Transition Services Agreement), (ii) subject to material increases in capital requirements by any Mortgage Agency or Governmental Authority from those required of the Business or Buyer’s business on the date hereof (other than, in each such case, increases required by generally applicable Laws, regulations or guidelines issued by such Mortgage Agency or Governmental Authority as a result of the increased size of Buyer’s business following consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement) and (iii) subject by any Mortgage Agency or Governmental Authority to material increases in respect of minimum liquidity requirements or third party oversight or monitoring obligations from those required of or applicable to the Business or Buyer’s business on the date hereof (other than, in each such case, (x) increases, oversight or monitoring required by applicable Law, regulation or guidelines issued by any Mortgage Agency or Governmental Authority as a result of the increased size of Buyer’s business following consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and (y) any oversight, monitoring or testing imposed by any settlement with the U.S. Trustee) shall each be deemed to constitute a Burdensome Condition. (e) With respect to decision making authority, but without limiting Buyer’s obligations under this Section 5.3: (i) Buyer and Sellers shall have joint decision making authority with respect to the appropriate course of action with respect to, and shall cooperate with each other in connection with, obtaining the consents, approvals, permits, waiting period expirations or 60


 
authorizations of any Governmental Authority required under any Antitrust Laws to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. No Party or its counsel shall independently participate in any substantive call or meeting relating to the Antitrust Laws with any Governmental Authority in respect of any filings, investigations, or other inquiries without giving the other Party or its counsel prior notice of such call or meeting and, to the extent permitted by such Governmental Authority, the opportunity to attend and/or participate. In furtherance of the foregoing and to the extent permitted by applicable Law, (A) each Party shall notify the others, as far in advance as practicable, of any filing or material or substantive communication or inquiry it or any of its Subsidiaries intends to make with any Governmental Authority relating to the matters that are the subject of this Section 5.3 in respect of Antitrust Laws, (B) prior to submitting any such filing or making any such communication or inquiry, such Party shall provide the other Parties and its counsel a reasonable opportunity to review, and shall consider in good faith the comments of the other Parties in connection with, any such filing, communication or inquiry, (C) promptly following the submission of such filing or making such communication or inquiry, provide the other Parties with a copy of any such filing or, if in written form, communication or inquiry and (D) consult with the other Party in connection with any inquiry, hearing, investigation or Litigation by, or negotiations with, any Governmental Authority relating to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including the scheduling of, and strategic planning for, any meetings with any Governmental Authority relating thereto. In exercising the foregoing cooperation rights, the Sellers and Buyer each shall act reasonably and as promptly as reasonably practicable. (ii) Buyer and Sellers shall have joint decision making authority with respect to the appropriate course of action with respect to, and shall cooperate with each other in connection with, obtaining the consents, approvals, permits, waiting period expirations or authorizations of any insurer, investor, Mortgage Agency or applicable Governmental Authority required to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, in each case, for the avoidance of doubt, other than in respect of Antitrust Laws (which shall be governed by clause (i) above). No Party or its counsel shall independently participate in any substantive call or meeting with any insurer, investor, Mortgage Agency or Governmental Authority in connection with obtaining any approvals required to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and each Party shall provide the other Parties with the opportunity to attend and/or participate in any meetings with such insurer, investor, Mortgage Agency or Governmental Authority, as the case may be. In furtherance of the foregoing and to the extent permitted by applicable Law, (A) each Party shall notify the others, as far in advance as practicable, of any filing or material or substantive written communication or inquiry it or any of its Subsidiaries intends to make with any insurer, investor, Mortgage Agency or applicable Governmental Authority relating to the matters that are the subject of this Section 5.3 other than in respect of matters related to Antitrust Laws (which shall be governed by clause (i) above) and (B) each Party shall consult with the other Parties in connection with any inquiry, hearing, investigation or Litigation by, or negotiations with, any insurer, investor, Mortgage Agency or applicable Governmental Authority relating to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including the scheduling of, and strategic planning for, any meetings with such persons relating thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, materials provided pursuant to this Section 5.3 may be reasonably redacted (A) to remove references concerning the valuation of the Company and the 61


 
transactions contemplated by this Agreement, (B) as necessary to comply with any Contract, (C) as necessary to address reasonable privilege concerns or (D) as otherwise required by Law. Section 5.4 Bankruptcy Court Matters. (a) Approval of Break-Up Fee and Expense Reimbursement. (i) In accordance with the terms hereof (including Section 8.1 and Section 8.2) and subject to compliance with and advance Bankruptcy Court approval in accordance with the Bidding Procedures Order, in consideration for Buyer having expended considerable time and expense in connection with this Agreement and the negotiation thereof and the identification and quantification of the Acquired Assets, in the event that this Agreement is terminated pursuant to (w) Section 8.1(b)(iii), Sellers shall (A) on the first (1st) Business Day following such termination, pay Buyer an initial break-up fee in an amount equal to $10,000,000 (the “Initial Termination Payment”), plus an amount equal to the reasonable and documented expenses of Buyer and Buyer’s Affiliates incurred in connection with their investigation (including due diligence), preparation, negotiation and attempted consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (including performance of the obligations hereunder), up to an aggregate amount of $6,000,000 (the “Expense Reimbursement”) and (B) on the first (1st) Business Day following Sellers’ consummation of an Alternative Transaction, pay Buyer a subsequent termination payment in an amount equal to $20,000,000 (the “Remaining Termination Payment” and together with the Initial Termination Payment, the “Termination Payment”) upon consummation of an Alternative Transaction, (x) Section 8.1(c)(i), Sellers shall (A) on the first (1st) Business Day following such termination, pay Buyer the Initial Termination Payment and the Expense Reimbursement and (B) on the first (1st) Business Day following Sellers’ consummation of an Alternative Transaction, pay Buyer the Remaining Termination Payment upon consummation of an Alternative Transaction only if Sellers consummate an Alternative Transaction within three hundred and sixty-five (365) days following such termination (the “Tail Period”); provided, however, that if consummation of an Alternative Transaction does not occur within the Tail Period, the Remaining Termination Payment shall not be payable by Sellers; provided, however, that to the extent that this Agreement is terminated pursuant to Section 8.1(c)(i) on the grounds that the breach by any Seller that gave rise to such termination right resulted in or is reasonably likely to result in a Material Adverse Effect caused by any condition, circumstance, event, effect or change related to the departure or threatened departure of any employees of any Seller, or any adverse change or threatened adverse change in the relationship of any Seller with its employees, Buyer will not be entitled to any Termination Payment (but will be entitled to receive the Expense Reimbursement) or (y) Section 8.1(b)(v), Sellers shall, on the first (1st) Business Day following such termination, pay Buyer the Expense Reimbursement. (ii) For the avoidance of doubt, in no event shall more than $36,000,000 be payable by Sellers as a Termination Payment and Expense Reimbursement, and only one Termination Payment, if any, or portion thereof, and only one Expense Reimbursement, if any, or portion thereof, may be payable hereunder. (iii) Nothing in this Section 5.4 shall relieve Buyer or Sellers of any Liability for a breach of this Agreement prior to the date of termination; provided, that Sellers’ 62


 
Liability under this Agreement for any and all such breaches, other than for willful misconduct, shall be capped at an amount equal to the Termination Payment. Upon payment of the Termination Payment or the Expense Reimbursement, as applicable, to Buyer in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, Sellers and their respective Representatives and Affiliates, on the one hand, and Buyer and its Representatives and Affiliates, on the other, will be deemed to have fully released and discharged each other from any Liability resulting from the termination of this Agreement and neither Sellers, their Representatives or Affiliates, on the one hand, nor Buyer, its Representatives or Affiliates, on the other hand, or any other Person will have any other remedy or cause of action under or relating to this Agreement or any applicable Law, including for reimbursement of expenses, other than, in the case of payment of any Expense Reimbursement, any right granted to Buyer pursuant to this Section 5.4(a) to subsequently receive the Termination Payment in the event of the subsequent consummation of the Alternative Transaction. (iv) Without limiting the foregoing, and without limiting Section 10.10, Buyer acknowledges and agrees that, except in the case of willful misconduct, termination of this Agreement in accordance with the applicable provisions of Article VIII and payment and delivery of the Termination Payment and/or Expense Reimbursement (if any) in accordance with this Section 5.4 will be the sole and exclusive remedy of Buyer, and its Representatives and Affiliates, whether at Law or in equity, with respect to any termination of this Agreement or any breach hereof, and upon the payment and delivery of the Termination Payment and/or Expense Reimbursement (if any) in accordance with this Section 5.4 (which will constitute liquidated damages) to Buyer, Buyer and its Representatives and Affiliates will be deemed to have fully released and discharged Sellers and their respective Representatives and Affiliates from any Liabilities resulting from the termination of this Agreement or any breach hereof. For the avoidance of doubt, no release obtained pursuant to this Section 5.4(a) shall constitute a release of any Liabilities of Buyer or the Sellers related to any prepetition conduct or Contract. (v) Sellers acknowledge and agree that (i) the payment of the Termination Payment and Expense Reimbursement is an integral part of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, (ii) in the absence of Sellers’ obligations to pay the Termination Payment and Expense Reimbursement to Buyer, Buyer would not have entered into this Agreement, and (iii) the Termination Payment and Expense Reimbursement shall constitute administrative expenses of Sellers’ bankruptcy estates under Section 503(b)(1)(A) and 507(a)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code. (b) Approval of Overbid Requirement. In accordance with, and without limiting or otherwise modifying any provisions of, the Bidding Procedures Order, the purchase price in a competing bid for the Acquired Assets shall not be considered a Qualified Bid (as defined in the Bidding Procedures Order) unless such bid (a) provides for consideration to the estates of the debtors-in possession in the Bankruptcy Cases of at least $30,000,000 for payment of the Termination Payment and up to $6,000,000 for payment of the Expense Reimbursement, and (b) otherwise constitutes a higher or better bid taking into account all of the consideration provided to the estates of the debtors-in possession in the Bankruptcy Cases under this Agreement, including the Purchase Price, as determined by the Sellers (in the due exercise of their fiduciary duties and applicable Law). 63


 
(c) Alternative Transaction and Alternative PLS Transaction. (i) This Agreement is subject to approval by the Bankruptcy Court and the consideration by Sellers of Alternative Transactions. Until the Confirmation Order is entered by the Bankruptcy Court, Sellers are permitted to and permitted to cause their Representatives and Affiliates to, initiate contact with, solicit or encourage submission of any inquiries, proposals or offers by, any Person (in addition to Buyer and its Affiliates and Representatives) in connection with any sale or other disposition of the Acquired Assets. In addition, Sellers shall have the authority to respond to any inquiries or offers to purchase all or any part of the Acquired Assets (whether in combination with other assets of Sellers or their Affiliates or otherwise) and perform any and all other acts related thereto, including supplying information relating to the Business and the assets of Sellers to prospective purchasers. (ii) In accordance with the terms hereof and subject to compliance with the Bidding Procedures Order, in consideration for Buyer having expended considerable time and expense in connection with this Agreement and the negotiation thereof and the identification and quantification of the Acquired Assets, in the event that an Alternative PLS Transaction is consummated prior to the Outside Date, Sellers shall, on the first (1st) Business Day following such consummation, pay Buyer a break-up fee in an amount equal to $3,800,000. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing contained herein shall (x) limit Sellers’ ability to consummate an Alternative PLS Transaction in accordance with this Section 5.4(c)(ii) or (y) provide Buyer with any rights upon the consummation of an Alternative PLS Transaction other than to receive the break-up fee as set forth in this Section 5.4(c)(ii). For the avoidance of doubt, Buyer will not be entitled to receive the Expense Reimbursement or Termination Payment solely based upon the entry into or consummation of an Alternative PLS Transaction. (d) Bankruptcy Court Filings. (i) As soon as reasonably practicable following the execution of this Agreement, in accordance with the Bidding Procedures Order, Sellers shall file with the Bankruptcy Court a Notice of Stalking Horse Bidder (as defined in the Bidding Procedures Order) setting forth the material terms of this Agreement, including the Termination Payment and Expense Reimbursement, together with a form of order approving the bid protections for Buyer set forth in Section 5.4(a), Section 5.4(b), and Section 5.4(c), each in form and substance reasonably acceptable to Buyer and the Company. Buyer agrees that it will promptly take such actions as are reasonably requested by Sellers to assist in obtaining approval of the Termination Payment and Expense Reimbursement, including by furnishing affidavits or other documents or information for filing with the Bankruptcy Court. In the event the entry of the determination of approval of the Termination Payment and Expense Reimbursement shall be appealed, Sellers and Buyer shall use their respective commercially reasonable efforts to defend such appeal. (ii) Sellers shall use commercially reasonable efforts to (A) timely file all pleadings with the Bankruptcy Court as are necessary or appropriate to secure entry of the Confirmation Order and (B) cause notice of the hearing to consider entry of the Confirmation Order to be served on the parties entitled to notice thereof pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code, the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure and any applicable local rules, and shall diligently 64


 
pursue the entry of the Confirmation Order and approval of this Agreement and the Related Agreements by the Bankruptcy Court. (iii) Sellers shall use reasonable best efforts to (A) obtain bifurcation of the servicing and origination Liabilities associated with the PLS Assets and (B) include such bifurcation in the Sale Provisions included in the Confirmation Order approved by the Bankruptcy Court. (iv) Sellers and Buyer acknowledge that this Agreement and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement are subject to entry of the Confirmation Order. In the event of any discrepancy between this Agreement, the Bidding Procedures Order, and the Confirmation Order, the Confirmation Order shall govern, except with respect to Section 2.3(b), Section 5.4(a), Section 7.1, Section 7.2, Section 7.3 and Section 8.1, in which case this Agreement shall govern in all respects. (v) Buyer agrees that it will promptly take such actions as are reasonably requested by Sellers to assist in obtaining entry of the Confirmation Order and a finding of adequate assurance of future performance by Buyer, including by furnishing affidavits or other documents or information for filing with the Bankruptcy Court for the purposes, among others, of providing necessary assurances of performance by Buyer under this Agreement. Buyer shall not, without the prior written consent of Sellers, file, join in, or otherwise support in any manner whatsoever any motion or other pleading relating to the sale of the Acquired Assets hereunder. (vi) In the event an appeal is taken, or a stay pending appeal is requested, from the Confirmation Order, Sellers shall promptly notify Buyer of such appeal or stay request. Sellers shall use commercially reasonable efforts to defend any such appeal. (e) Back-Up Bidder. Sellers and Buyer agree that, in the event that Buyer is not the winning bidder at the Auction, if and only if (i) Buyer submits the second-highest or otherwise second-best bid at the Auction or the terms of this Agreement constitute the second- highest or otherwise second-best bid, and (ii) Sellers give written notice to Buyer on or before the Back-Up Termination Date, stating that Sellers (A) failed to consummate the sale of the Acquired Assets with the winning bidder, and (B) terminated the purchase agreement with the winning bidder, Buyer shall promptly consummate the transactions contemplated hereby upon the terms and conditions as set forth herein, including the Purchase Price, as the same may be increased by Buyer at the Auction. (f) Milestones. The Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to satisfy the following milestones (collectively, the “Bankruptcy Milestones”): (i) Within one (1) Business Day after entry into this Agreement, the Company shall file with the Bankruptcy Court a notice (the “Notice of Stalking Horse Bidder”), in form and substance reasonably acceptable to Buyer and the Company, designating Buyer as the “stalking horse bidder” for the Acquired Assets setting forth the material terms of this Agreement, including the Termination Payment and Expense Reimbursement, and indicating the Company’s support for the Termination Payment and Expense Reimbursement. 65


 
(ii) No later than August 16, 2019, the Bankruptcy Court shall have entered the Confirmation Order. The Bankruptcy Milestones may be extended upon mutual agreement between the Company (on behalf of itself and the other Sellers) and Buyer, and shall be extended as necessary to accommodate the availability of the Bankruptcy Court. Section 5.5 Notices and Consents. (a) Prior to the Closing, Sellers will give, or will cause to be given, any notices to third parties, and each of the Parties will use its reasonable best efforts to cooperate with the other Party and to obtain any third party consents or sublicenses, in connection with the matters referred to in Section 5.5(a) of the Disclosure Schedule or as are otherwise necessary and appropriate to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; provided, however, that (i) Sellers shall control all correspondence and negotiations with third parties regarding any such matters, (ii) no Seller, nor any Subsidiary of a Seller or Buyer shall be required to pay any consideration therefor or incur any expenses in connection therewith and (iii) Sellers shall not be obligated to initiate any Litigation to obtain such consent or approval; provided that there shall be no adjustment to the Purchase Price on account of the exclusion of any Acquired Asset as a result of not obtaining any such consent. The Parties agree that, subject to Sellers’ compliance with the terms of this Agreement, including Section 2.6 and this Section 5.5, any failure to receive such consents shall not be deemed a breach of this Agreement or constitute a failure of a condition to Closing. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that from and after the Closing no Seller shall have any Liability to Buyer (and Buyer will not be entitled to assert any claims against the Sellers) arising out of or relating to the failure to obtain any such consents and waivers or because of the default, acceleration or termination of or loss of right under any such Contract; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not apply to any remedies Buyer may otherwise have for any breach of this Agreement. (b) Without limiting Section 5.3, each of the Parties will give any notices to, make any filings with, and use its reasonable best efforts to obtain any authorizations, consents, and approvals of Governmental Authorities or Mortgage Agencies as are necessary and appropriate to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. Section 5.6 Notice of Developments. Each Seller and Buyer will give prompt written notice to the other Parties of (a) the existence of any fact or circumstance, or the occurrence of any event, of which it has Knowledge, that would reasonably be likely to cause a condition to a Party’s obligations to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement set forth in Article VII not to be satisfied as of a reasonably foreseeable Closing Date, or (b) the receipt of any notice or other communication from any Governmental Authority or Mortgage Agency in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; provided, however, that the delivery of any such notice pursuant to this Section 5.6 shall not be deemed to amend or supplement this Agreement.

Section 5.9 Replacement Bonding Requirements. Sellers shall provide Buyer with a list, as of the Closing Date, of all Bonding Requirements related to the MSRPA Assets. Prior to each MSR Transfer Date, Sellers shall provide Buyer with an updated list, as of the applicable MSR Transfer Date, of all Bonding Requirements related to the MSRPA Assets which will transfer on the applicable MSR Transfer Date. Within forty-five (45) days after each applicable MSR Transfer Date, Buyer shall provide replacement Bonding Requirements for each item listed on the updated list of Bonding Requirements provided by Sellers prior to such MSR Transfer Date. Buyer and Sellers shall cooperate to obtain a release in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Buyer and Sellers with respect to such Bonding Requirements.

Section 5.10 Ordinary Course Servicing. Prior to the Closing Date, Financial shall continue to service (or, as applicable, shall continue to cause to have serviced) the MSRPA 67

Section 5.13 Advance Documentation. (a) Prior to Closing, Sellers agree to use commercially reasonable efforts to continue to pursue recovery and reconciliation of all outstanding servicing advances on both active loans and liquidated loans. In addition, for the loans listed on Section 5.13 of the Disclosure Schedule and any other loans mutually agreed upon by the Parties after the date hereof, the Company will assess the likelihood of recovery based on characteristics including age of the advance, type of the advance and recoverability under the applicable Guides. For any advances the Company reasonably determines are potentially non-recoverable, the Company agrees to pursue all reasonable means to resolve such advances, including filing claims with the Mortgage Agencies and/or writing-off such advances. Buyer understands and agrees that any write-offs of advances could potentially result in a reduction of reserves for non-recoverable advances. (b) In addition, as soon as practicable after the date hereof, the Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Buyer with supporting documentation sufficient to obtain reimbursement from Fannie Mae, Ginnie Mae or the related Securitization Trust, as applicable, for advances outstanding as of May 31, 2019. For such advances, prior to the Closing Date, the Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide advance documentation or system transaction support required to file a claim for counterparty advance reimbursement. Where an image of an actual invoice is required by any of the counterparties for reimbursement, the Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Buyer with such image. In addition, for any advances made subsequent to May 31, 2019, the Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver advance documentation sufficient to obtain reimbursement from Fannie Mae, Ginnie Mae or the related Securitization Trust, as applicable, for the month in which Closing occurs as soon as reasonably practicable (but in no event later than 30 days after Closing). (c) If the Company is unable to meet its obligations pursuant to this Section 5.13 as a result of internal resource constraints, Buyer may direct the Company to engage a third 68


 
party provider (at Buyer’s cost and expense) to assist the Company with the tasks described in this Section 5.13. OTHER COVENANTS The Parties agree as follows with respect to the period from and after the Closing: Section 6.1 Further Assurances.

(c) For the avoidance of doubt, the Parties acknowledge and agree that, except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, (i) Sellers shall not have any Liability with respect to the ownership, operation or use by Buyer of the Acquired Assets from and after the Closing, including related to Buyer’s or its Affiliates’ application for, or receipt of, any approvals of any Governmental Authority or Mortgage Agency and (ii) Buyer and its Affiliates shall not have any Liability with respect to the ownership, operation or use by Sellers or any of their Affiliates of the Excluded Assets or Excluded Liabilities from and after the Closing. Section 6.2 Access; Enforcement; Record Retention. From and after the Closing, upon request by any Party, each of Sellers or Buyer shall permit the other Party and its Representatives to have reasonable access during normal business hours, and in a manner so as not to interfere unreasonably with the normal business operations of such Party, to all premises, properties, personnel, books and records, and Contracts of or related to the Business, the Acquired Assets or the Assumed Liabilities relating to the periods prior to the Closing for the purposes of (a) preparing Tax Returns, (b) monitoring or enforcing rights or obligations under this Agreement or any of the Related Agreements, (c) complying with any audit request, subpoena or other investigative demand by any Governmental Authority or Mortgage Agency or (d) any other legitimate business purpose; provided, however, that, for avoidance of doubt, the 69


 
foregoing shall not require such Party to take any such action if (i) such action may result in a waiver or breach of any attorney/client privilege, (ii) such action could reasonably be likely to result in a violation of applicable Law or Contract regarding confidentiality (including any Law, Decree or Contract relating to the collection, transfer, storage, disposal, use, processing and disclosure of personally identifiable information), or (iii) providing such access or information would be reasonably likely to be disruptive to its normal business operations. Buyer agrees to maintain the files or records which are contemplated by the first sentence of this Section 6.2 in a manner consistent in all material respects with its document retention and destruction policies, as in effect from time to time, for seven (7) years following the Closing. In the event that Buyer wishes to destroy such records after such time, it shall give Sellers ninety (90) days’ prior written notice, and Sellers shall have the right, at their option and expense, upon written notice to Buyer, to take possession of such records within one hundred and eighty (180) days after the date of such notice. Section 6.3 Employee Matters. (a) Employment of Company Employees. Each Company Employee set forth on a list provided by Buyer to Sellers at least thirty (30) days prior to Closing (the “Employee List”) shall be provided with an offer of employment by Buyer or an Affiliate of Buyer effective as of the Employee Transfer Date (as defined below) on terms consistent with Section 6.3(c) no later than twenty (20) days prior to the Closing Date; provided that, if Sellers indicate that the services of any Company Employee on the Employee List are necessary or desirable in connection with the then-current operations of the Sellers, Buyer will work in good faith and cooperate with Sellers to provide a portion of such Company Employee’s time to continue such services (at Sellers’ expense), including by modifying or amending the Transition Services Agreement to allow for such arrangements. For the purposes of this Agreement, any individual who becomes employed by Buyer or an Affiliate of Buyer in accordance with this Section 6.3(a) is referred to as a “Transferred Employee” and the date any such Transferred Employee commences employment with the Buyer or an Affiliate of Buyer shall be referred to as the “Employee Transfer Date”. For each employee identified on the Employee List as primarily dedicated to the MSRPA Servicing Rights, such employee’s Employee Transfer Date shall be the MSR Transfer Date applicable to such MSRPA Servicing Rights. For each other employee, the Parties shall cooperate in good faith to accommodate the transfer effective on an appropriate date taking into account the transition of the Acquired Assets and the needs of Buyer to transition the Business and Sellers’ then-current operations. (b) Employees and Employee Benefit Plans. (i) Liabilities. Effective as of the Employee Transfer Date, Buyer shall, or shall cause one of its Affiliates to, assume or retain, as the case may be, any and all Liabilities relating to, arising out of, or resulting from the employment or services, or termination of employment or services, of any Transferred Employee, to the extent such Liabilities arise out of or relate to such employee’s employment with Buyer or its Affiliates, with respect to each Company Employee who is a Transferred Employee. The Company or the applicable Subsidiary shall retain as Excluded Liabilities any and all Liabilities relating to, arising out of, or resulting from the employment or services, or termination of employment or services, of (x) any Company Employee who is a Transferred Employee to the extent such Liabilities arise out of or relate to 70

Buyer shall, and shall cause its Affiliates to, credit Transferred Employees for service earned on and prior to the Employee Transfer Date with the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, as applicable, (A) to the extent that service is relevant for purposes of eligibility, vesting, paid-leave entitlement or the calculation of benefits under any employee benefit plan, program or arrangement of Buyer or any of its Affiliates (other than with respect to benefit accruals under any defined benefit pension plan or retiree health plan) for the benefit of the Transferred Employees on or after the Employee Transfer Date to the same extent and for the same purpose as such service was credited to such Transferred Employee under the applicable Company Benefit Plan as of the Employee Transfer Date and (B) for such additional purposes as may be required by applicable Law; provided, however, that nothing herein shall result in a duplication of benefits with respect to the Transferred Employees. (d) Pre-existing Conditions; Coordination. Buyer shall, and shall cause its Affiliates to, use commercially reasonable efforts to waive any pre-existing condition or actively at work limitations, evidence of insurability and waiting periods for the Transferred Employees and their eligible spouses and dependents under any group health plan of Buyer or any of its Affiliates for the benefit of the Transferred Employees on or after the Employee Transfer Date to the same extent waived for such person under the corresponding Benefit Plan as of the Employee Transfer Date. Buyer shall, and shall cause its Affiliates to, use commercially reasonable efforts to credit for purposes of determining and satisfying annual deductibles, co-insurance, co-pays, out-of-pocket limits and other applicable limits under the comparable health plans and arrangements offered to Transferred Employees, deductibles, co-insurance, co-pays and out-of- pocket expenses paid by Transferred Employees and their respective spouses and dependents under Sellers’ or any of their respective Affiliates’ health plans in the calendar year in which the Employee Transfer Date occurs. (e) 401(k) Plan. Each Transferred Employee shall, to the extent they meet the applicable eligibility requirements, be eligible to participate in a defined contribution plan sponsored by Buyer or an Affiliate of Buyer that is intended to be qualified under Section 401(a) of the IRC (a “Buyer 401(k) Plan”). Effective as of the Employee Transfer Date, the Sellers shall cause the account balances (including any outstanding loan balances) in the tax-qualified defined contribution plan maintained by the Sellers’ or any of their respective Affiliates’ (the “Seller 71


 
401(k) Plan”) that are attributable to the Transferred Employees who were participants in the Seller 401(k) Plan immediately prior to the Employee Transfer Date to be transferred to the Buyer 401(k) Plan, and Buyer shall cause the Buyer 401(k) Plan to accept the transfer of such amount in accordance with Section 414(l) of the IRC, Treasury Regulation Section 414(l)-(1) and Section 208 of ERISA. (f) Flexible Spending Accounts. Effective as of the Employee Transfer Date, Sellers shall transfer, or cause to be transferred, to Buyer an amount, in cash, representing the aggregate 2019 contributions of each Transferred Employee then participating in a Company Benefit Plan that is a flexible benefits plan (the “Company Flexible Benefits Plan”), net of reimbursements (but not less than zero).

Transferred Employees shall be permitted to use their Assumed PTO in a manner consistent with Buyer policies applicable to similarly situated employees of Buyer and to accrue additional vacation and other paid-time-off in accordance with Buyer’s policies and procedures, as in effect from time to time. Buyer and its Affiliates shall recognize the Transferred Employees’ service with Sellers and their Affiliates (and their predecessors) prior to the Employee Transfer Date for the purposes of accruals and usage of vacation and paid-time-off following the Employee Transfer Date. (h) Accrued Bonuses. Each Seller shall continue to accrue bonuses under the Sellers’ bonus plans for the portion of the applicable bonus period through the Employee Transfer Date. To the extent reflected in the Final Statement, Buyer shall assume and pay to the Transferred Employees any accrued bonuses under Sellers’ bonus plans for the portion of the applicable bonus period through the Employee Transfer Date (the “Accrued Bonus Amount”). The Accrued Bonus Amount shall be paid to the applicable Transferred Employee at such time as such bonuses are traditionally paid under such plan, in accordance with the terms and conditions of such plan. Notwithstanding the above, Buyer shall reimburse Sellers for any portion of the Accrued Bonus Amount that is not paid to any Transferred Employee within ten (10) Business Days of the date that any portion of the Accrued Bonus Amount is paid to Transferred Employees. 72

Section 6.4 Certain Tax Matters. (a) Transfer Taxes. Any stamp, documentary, filing, recording, registration, sales, use, transfer, added-value or other similar Tax imposed under applicable Law in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (a “Transfer Tax”) shall be borne fifty percent (50%) by Buyer, on the one hand, and fifty percent (50%) by Sellers, on the other hand; provided, that Sellers shall include in the Confirmation Order a provision that provides that the transfer of the Acquired Assets shall be free and clear of any stamp or similar taxes under Bankruptcy Code Section 1146(a) to the extent permitted. The Person primarily responsible as a matter of Law for filing any Tax Returns with respect to Transfer Taxes shall, at its expense, timely prepare and file such Tax Returns and other documents required to be filed with respect to such Transfer Taxes, and the other Party shall promptly reimburse such Party for the amount of such Transfer Taxes actually paid by such Party (including any additional Transfer Taxes resulting from such reimbursement). Each of Seller and Buyer shall, upon the other party’s reasonable request and at such requesting party’s sole expense, provide such requesting party with any non-confidential documentation in its possession (as reasonably determined by the providing party) in connection with such requesting party’s claim of exemption from any Transfer Taxes.

The Sellers shall be liable for the proportionate amount of Taxes that are attributable to the portion of the Proration Period ending on or before the Closing Date, and Buyer shall be liable for the proportionate amount of Taxes that are attributable to the portion of the Proration Period beginning after the Closing Date. If the precise amount of any such Tax cannot be ascertained on the Closing Date, apportionment and proration shall be computed on the basis of the amount payable for each respective item during the Tax period immediately preceding the Proration Period. Section 6.5 Insurance Matters. 73


 
(a) Buyer acknowledges that, upon Closing, all insurance coverage provided in relation to Sellers and the Acquired Assets that is maintained by any Seller or its Affiliates (whether such policies are maintained with third party insurers or with such Seller or its Affiliates) shall cease to provide any coverage to Buyer and Acquired Assets and no further coverage shall be available to Buyer, or the Acquired Assets under any such policies. (b) To the extent that there is any insurable claim related to the Business, any Acquired Asset or Assumed Liability based on any act, omission or circumstance existing or occurring at or prior to the Closing (an “Insurable Claim”) under any occurrence based insurance policy or program of any Seller or any of their Affiliates that was issued by any third-party insurance carrier that was in effect as of the Closing (a “Third-Party Insurance Policy”) then, from and after the Closing, such Seller shall (or shall cause its Affiliates to), at Buyer’s request and sole cost and expense, reasonably cooperate with Buyer to make a claim on Buyer’s behalf, after the Closing Date, under such Third-Party Insurance Policy with respect to such Insurable Claim and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to pursue such claim (which shall not include the commencement or prosecution of any Litigation by Seller or any Affiliate against an insurer or any other Person). Such Seller shall (or shall cause its Affiliates to), at Buyer’s sole cost and expense, use commercially reasonable efforts to file such claims with the applicable insurance carriers of such Third-Party Insurance Policy. Buyer and Sellers shall keep each other reasonably advised of the status of (and any developments regarding) any Insurable Claim, and cooperate with each other and any insurance carrier in connection with such Insurable Claims. Sellers shall as soon as reasonably practicable following receipt thereof by a Seller or any of its Affiliates, deliver to Buyer all proceeds received under the Third-Party Insurance Policies with respect to such Insurable Claim. Buyer shall bear and be responsible and indemnify Sellers for (and neither any Seller nor any of its Affiliates shall have any obligation to repay or reimburse Buyer for) (A) the amount of any and all deductibles, retentions or self- insurance associated with claims under the foregoing Third Party Insurance Policies, (B) all uninsured, uncovered, unavailable or uncollectible amounts of such claims and (C) any other costs or expenses incurred by Sellers or their Affiliates in compliance with this Section 6.5(b). Section 6.6 Acknowledgements. (a) Buyer acknowledges that it has received from Sellers certain projections, forecasts, and prospective or third party information relating to Sellers, the Acquired Assets, the Assumed Liabilities, and other related topics. Buyer acknowledges that (i) there are uncertainties inherent in attempting to make such projections and forecasts and in such information; (ii) Buyer is familiar with such uncertainties and is taking full responsibility for making its own evaluation of the adequacy and accuracy of such projections and forecasts in such information so furnished; (iii) Buyer has not relied upon, and to the Knowledge of Buyer none of its Representatives have relied upon, such projections, forecasts and information; and (iv) neither Buyer nor any other Person shall have any claim against any Seller or any of their Affiliates or any of their respective directors, officers, employees, stockholders, members, managers, partners, Affiliates, agents, or other Representatives with respect thereto. Accordingly, without limiting the generality of Section 3.17 or Section 9.1, Buyer acknowledges that none of the Sellers nor any other Person makes any representations or warranties with respect to such projections, forecasts, or information, except as may be expressly set forth in Article III. 74


 
(b) Buyer acknowledges that, except for the representations and warranties expressly set forth in Article III, as modified by the Disclosure Schedule, or expressly contained in any Related Agreement and without limiting the generality of Section 3.17, (i) none of the Sellers nor any other Person has made, or shall be deemed to have made, and none of Buyer or its Representatives is relying on, any representation or warranty, express or implied, including as to the accuracy or completeness of any information regarding any of the Sellers, any Acquired Assets, any Assumed Liabilities or any other matter, and no Seller nor any other Person will be subject to any Liability to Buyer or any other Person resulting from such matters or the distribution to Buyer, or the use of, any such information and (ii) SHOULD THE CLOSING OCCUR, BUYER WILL ACQUIRE THE ACQUIRED ASSETS AND ASSUME THE ASSUMED LIABILITIES IN AN “AS IS” CONDITION AND ON A “WHERE IS” BASIS, WITHOUT ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED (INCLUDING ANY WITH RESPECT TO ENVIRONMENTAL, HEALTH OR SAFETY MATTERS). Further, without limiting any representation, warranty, or covenant of any Seller expressly set forth herein or in a Related Agreement, Buyer acknowledges that it has waived and hereby waives, as a condition to the Closing, any further due diligence reviews, inspections, or examinations with respect to any Seller, the Acquired Assets, the Assumed Liabilities, or any other matter, including with respect to engineering, environmental, title, survey, financial, operational, regulatory, and legal compliance matters. Section 6.7 Press Releases and Public Announcements. No Party shall issue any press release or make any public announcement relating to the existence or subject matter of this Agreement without the prior written approval of the other Parties (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), unless a press release or public announcement is required by applicable Law or a Decree, including a Decree of the Bankruptcy Court. If any such announcement or other disclosure is required by applicable Law or a Decree, including a Decree of the Bankruptcy Court, to the extent practical or permitted, the disclosing Party shall give the nondisclosing Parties prior notice of, and an opportunity to comment on, the proposed disclosure. The Parties acknowledge that Sellers shall file this Agreement with the Bankruptcy Court in connection with filing the Notice of Stalking Horse Bidder (and to the extent that any such other filings are required pursuant to any listing exchange or other applicable Law). Section 6.8 Release of MSR Escrow Amount. Within two (2) Business Days following each MSR Transfer Date, the Parties shall deliver a joint written instruction to the Escrow Agent directing the Escrow Agent to release from the MSR Escrow Account the proportion of the MSR Escrow Amount that equals the ratio of (x) the MSRPA Servicing Rights transferred to Buyer on the applicable MSR Transfer Date, to (y) all MSRPA Servicing Rights that Sellers agreed to transfer to Buyer under the MSRPA; provided, however, that if the transfer of MSRPA Servicing Rights is not able to occur as a result of Buyer’s failure to act in good faith to complete the transfer of the MSRPA Servicing Rights in a timely manner, and such failure to act in good faith is not remedied within ten (10) Business Days of Sellers’ written notice to Buyer notifying Buyer of such failure to act in good faith, then Sellers will be entitled to receive the applicable portion of the MSR Escrow Amount that would otherwise have been released to Sellers in accordance with this Section 6.8. Section 6.9 Confidentiality. From and after the Closing, (a) Sellers shall, and shall cause their respective Affiliates and Representatives to, keep confidential and not disclose or use 75


 
in any manner any and all non-public information (including customer or other personally identifiable information), whether written or oral, relating to the Business, the Acquired Assets, the Assumed Liabilities or Buyer and its Affiliates and (b) Buyer shall, and shall cause its Affiliates and Representatives to, keep confidential and not disclose or use in any manner any and all non-public information, whether written or oral, relating to the Excluded Assets, the Excluded Liabilities or the Sellers; provided, however, that, subject to compliance with the immediately following sentence, the Parties shall not be liable hereunder with respect to any disclosure to the extent such disclosure is required by any applicable Law or Decree, including applicable rules of any securities exchange, or requested or required by any Governmental Authority or Mortgage Agency. In the event that any Party is requested or required by any applicable Law or Decree to disclose any such non-public information, such Party shall, (i) to the extent permissible by such applicable Law or Decree and practicable, provide the other Parties with prompt written notice of such requirement, (ii) disclose only that information that is required by such applicable Law or Decree and (iii) use commercially reasonable efforts to preserve the confidentiality of such non-public information, including by reasonably cooperating with the other Parties to obtain an appropriate protective order or other reliable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded such non-public information (at such other Party’s sole cost and expense).

If, prior to the Outside Date (i) a definitive agreement with respect to an Alternative PLS Transaction has not been entered into (or, if such agreement has been entered into but is no longer in effect) or an Alternative PLS Transaction has not been consummated and (ii) the PLS Approval is obtained, then the transfer of the applicable PLS Assets to Buyer from the Sellers, along with assumption by Buyer of any Liabilities that would have otherwise constituted Assumed Liabilities, shall occur as soon as practicable following the PLS Approval and in accordance with applicable investor and regulatory guidelines, and there shall be no further requirements or conditions to such transfer (the “PLS Closing”); provided, that, notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary, the Buyer and Sellers hereby acknowledge and agree that, in the event that the Bankruptcy Court determines (including as part of the Confirmation Order) that the Side Letters, or any rights or Liabilities of Sellers thereunder, must be assumed by Buyer in order for Buyer to purchase, acquire and accept the Servicing Agreements (as defined in each Side Letter), then Buyer, in its sole discretion, shall be entitled (but not obligated) to determine that such Servicing Agreements and Side Letters shall not be PLS Assets or Private Investor Servicing Agreements for purposes of the PLS Closing and Buyer shall not acquire such Servicing Agreements or Side Letters as part of the PLS Assets (such Servicing Agreements or Side Letters thereafter constituting Excluded Assets) or assume the Liabilities related thereto (such Liabilities thereafter constituting Excluded Liabilities), it being acknowledged and agreed by the Parties that (A) such determination shall not constitute the PLS Holdback and (B) the sale of any such Servicing Agreements or Side Letters by the Sellers to a party other than the Buyer following such determination by Buyer shall not be prohibited by this Agreement and shall not result in the payment of, or entitle the Buyer to, the payment of any fee, including the break-up fee described in Section 5.4(c)(ii) and Buyer shall have no claim, right or interest in or to the applicable Servicing Agreements or Side Letters. At the PLS Closing, the Company and Buyer shall provide a joint written instruction to the Escrow Agent to release the PLS Deposit Amount, together with all accrued investment income thereon, if any, to the Company, and the Buyer shall pay the remaining PLS Amount to Sellers by wire transfer of immediately available funds into an account designated by Sellers.

Section 9.4 Limitations. (a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Sellers shall not be obligated to indemnify any Buyer Indemnities with respect to any claim for indemnification unless and until (i) first, with respect to any claim for Damages incurred, or reasonably likely to be incurred, related to any specific asset type listed on Section 9.4(a) of the Disclosure Schedule, the amount of the reserve corresponding to such asset type reflected on such Disclosure Schedule is applied to offset the amount of such Damages, and (ii) second, the aggregate amount of other Damages incurred, or reasonably likely to be incurred (after giving effect to clause (i) above), with respect to all such claims exceeds $7,500,000 (the “Deductible”). In addition, the following limitations shall apply to the rights of the Parties to seek indemnification under Section 9.2 and Section 9.3 (but for the avoidance of doubt shall not apply to Damages incurred by Buyer Indemnities up to and including the amount of the Deductible): (i) neither Buyer, on the one hand, nor any Seller, on the other hand, shall be obligated to indemnify the other Party with respect to any individual claim (or groups of claims arising from the same (A) facts and circumstances, (B) type of breach, act or omission, or 91


 
(C) underlying cause (“Related Claims”)) for indemnification hereunder if the Damages with respect to such claim (or related claims) are less than $15,000 (the “De Minimis Amount”); (ii) neither Buyer, on the one hand, nor any Seller, on the other hand, shall be obligated to indemnify the other Party with respect to any claim for indemnification hereunder if the Damages with respect to all such claims are less than $1,000,000 (the “Basket”), disregarding any individual claims (or Related Claims) that do not exceed the De Minimis Amount, in the aggregate, provided, that when the aggregate amount of such indemnification claims exceeds the amount of the Basket, such indemnified party shall be indemnified for (and receive from the indemnifying party) the entire amount of such aggregate Damages, including the amount of the Basket; and (iii) the maximum aggregate indemnifiable Damages that Buyer shall be required to pay to the Seller Indemnitees, and that Sellers shall be required to pay to the Buyer Indemnitees, for indemnification hereunder shall, in each case, be limited in the aggregate to $25,000,000.00 (the “Cap”); provided, that, for the avoidance of doubt, with respect to Sellers’ indemnification of the Buyer Indemnitees hereunder, the aggregate amount of indemnification payments that Sellers shall be required to pay hereunder shall be the aggregate amount then remaining in the Indemnification Escrow Account. (b) Other than in the case of Fraud, the release of the Deposit Escrow Amount to Sellers in accordance with Section 2.3(b)(iv) and except for equitable remedies (including pursuant to Section 10.10), the indemnification rights provided under this Article IX shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the Buyer Indemnitees or Seller Indemnitees, as applicable, for any inaccuracy in or breach of any representations, warranties or covenants of Sellers or Buyer, respectively, contained in this Agreement, the MSRPA or any other Related Agreement. In furtherance of the foregoing, the Parties hereby waive, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, any and all other rights, claims and causes of action (including rights of contributions, if any) known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen, which exist or may arise in the future, that it may have against Sellers or any of their Affiliates, or Buyer or any of its Affiliates, as the case may be, arising under or based upon any federal, state or local Law (including any such Law relating to environmental matters or arising under or based upon any securities Law, common Law or otherwise). Section 9.5 Indemnification Claims Procedures. (a) A claim for indemnification for any matter not involving a third party claim may be asserted by notice to the Party from whom indemnification is sought. (b) In the event that a claim or other Litigation shall be instituted, or that any claim or demand shall be asserted, by any third party (including any Governmental Authority or Mortgage Agency) in respect of which indemnification may be sought under this Article IX (an “Indemnification Claim”), the indemnified party shall promptly provide written notice of the assertion of any Indemnification Claim of which it has knowledge that is covered by this Article IX to the indemnifying party. The failure of the indemnified party to give reasonably prompt written notice of any Indemnification Claim shall not release, waive or otherwise affect the indemnifying party’s obligations with respect thereto except to the extent that the indemnifying 92


 
party is materially prejudiced as a result of such failure. If the indemnifying party gives notice (the “Notice of Assumption”) to the indemnified party within fifteen (15) days (or sooner, if the nature of the Indemnification Claim so requires) after the indemnified party has given notice to the indemnifying party of the Indemnification Claim that the indemnifying party elects to assume the defense of the Indemnification Claim, the indemnifying party shall have the right, at its sole option and expense, to be represented by counsel of its choice and who is reasonably acceptable to the indemnified party and, subject to Section 9.5(c) and Section 9.5(d), to defend against, negotiate, settle or otherwise deal with such Indemnification Claim, which relates to any Damages indemnifiable by it hereunder. If the indemnifying party shall assume the defense of any Indemnification Claim, the indemnified party may participate, at his, her or its own expense, in the defense of such Indemnification Claim; provided, however, that such indemnified party shall be entitled to participate in any such defense with separate counsel at the expense of the indemnifying party if (i) so requested by the indemnifying party to participate or (ii) in the reasonable opinion of counsel to the indemnified party, a conflict or potential conflict exists between the indemnified party and the indemnifying party that would make such separate representation advisable; and provided, further, that the indemnifying party shall not be required to pay for more than one such counsel (plus any appropriate local counsel if applicable) for all indemnified parties in connection with any Indemnification Claim. Buyer and Sellers agree to cooperate fully, and to cause the respective Buyer Indemnitees and Seller Indemnitees to cooperate fully, with each other in connection with the defense, negotiation or settlement of any such Indemnification Claim. The Parties acknowledge and agree that Sellers shall have the right to enforce the Confirmation Order in defending any indemnifiable claims pursuant to this Article IX. (c) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, but subject to Section 9.5(d), no Party (including in their capacity as an indemnifying party or an indemnified party) shall, without the written consent of the other Party, (i) take any action on an Indemnification Claim, enter into any settlement regarding, or compromise, modify or limit, any assets, rights or claims of the other Party, including with respect to an Indemnification Claim, or (ii) permit a default or consent to entry of any judgment with respect thereto; provided, that the indemnifying party may settle the Indemnification Claim without the written consent of the indemnified party if the terms of the settlement (i) provide solely for monetary damages which are to be paid entirely by the indemnifying party, (ii) do not provide for any finding or admission, directly or indirectly, of any violation of Law by the indemnified party, and (iii) do not contain any Decree which in any manner affects, restrains or interferes with the business of the indemnified party or its Affiliates. (d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, an indemnified party shall have the full right to control the defense, compromise and settlement of any third-party claims at the reasonable expense of the indemnifying party if (i) the claim seeks an injunction or other equitable relief with respect to the Acquired Assets or Assumed Liabilities, (ii) the claim involves criminal allegations related to Buyer or any of its Affiliates, officers, managers or employees, (iii) the claim involves claims for Damages that exceed the remaining portion of the Cap by an amount greater than such portion of the Cap remaining after application of all Damages sought to be recovered by the indemnified parties, or (iv) the indemnifying party fails to use commercially reasonable efforts to pursue the prosecution and/or settlement of such Indemnification Claim or fails to notify the indemnified party of its assumption of the defense of 93


 
such Indemnification Claim within fifteen (15) days as provided in Section 9.5(b). Assumption by the indemnified party of control of any such defense, compromise, or settlement in accordance with this Section 9.5(d) shall not be deemed a waiver by it of its right to indemnification hereunder. However, the consent requirements and their exclusions contained in Section 9.5(c) above shall apply to any defense, compromise or settlement undertaking by an indemnified party pursuant to this Section 9.5(d) if any such defense, compromise or settlement involves a claim for indemnification under this Article IX pursuant to which the indemnifying party would be required to make all or substantially all of any cash payment pursuant to any such compromise or settlement. The indemnifying party may participate in, but not control, any defense or settlement controlled by the indemnified party pursuant to this Section 9.5(d), and the indemnifying party shall bear its own costs and expenses with respect to such participation. Section 9.6 Calculation of Indemnity Payments. (a) The amount of any Damages for which indemnification is provided under this Article IX shall be net of any amounts actually recovered by the indemnified party (including under insurance policies) with respect to such Damages (net of any applicable deductibles, co-payments, premium increases, “retro premium” adjustments and similar costs or expenses incurred in obtaining such benefit or recovery), and the indemnified party will use commercially reasonable efforts to pursue such amounts. (b) If an indemnified party recovers an amount from a third party in respect of Damages that are the subject of indemnification hereunder (after all or a portion of such Damages have been paid by an indemnifying party pursuant to this Article IX) and the indemnified party seeks recovery from such third party (i) prior to the three (3) year anniversary of the Closing Date or (ii) within one (1) year of the resolution of the claim for indemnification made hereunder, in the event that such claim remained unresolved (and, therefore, outstanding), following the two (2) year anniversary of the Closing Date, then, in each case, the indemnified party shall promptly remit to the Escrow Agent (or, to the extent that the Escrow Agreement has been terminated in accordance with its terms, to the indemnifying party) the excess (if any) of (x) (A) the amount paid by such third party in respect of such Damages (net of any applicable deductibles, co-payments, premium increases, “retro premium” adjustments and similar costs or expenses incurred in obtaining such benefit or recovery) plus (B) the amount received by the indemnified party from the indemnifying party in respect thereof pursuant to this Article IX minus (y) the full amount of the Damages, and the indemnified party will use commercially reasonable efforts to pursue such amounts. Section 9.7 Additional Indemnification Considerations. (a) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement or any Related Agreement to the contrary and other than with respect to the representations, warranties and covenants in Section 3.4 and Section 6.10 of this Agreement, and Section 6.12 of the MSRPA, for purposes of establishing whether any matter is indemnifiable (including with respect to the determination of whether there is an inaccuracy or breach of any representation, warranty or covenant in this Agreement or any Related Agreement) under this Article IX, and for purposes of determining the amount of any indemnifiable Damages under this Article IX, such representations, warranties and covenants in this Agreement and any Related Agreement shall be determined without giving 94


 
effect to any materiality or Material Adverse Effect qualifications to such representations, warranties or covenants. (b) No information or knowledge of any Party, nor the results of any due diligence or investigation by any Party (including in relation to the other Party, Acquired Assets, Assumed Liabilities, the Mortgage Loans, the Servicing Rights (as defined in the MSRPA) or other assets), shall affect, waive, modify, limit, or diminish: (i) any representation or warranty of any Party contained in this Agreement or any Related Agreement; or (ii) any other Party’s right to rely upon such representations and warranties, including with respect to any claims for indemnification hereunder. (c) All indemnification payments made pursuant to this Article IX shall be treated by all Parties as adjustments to the Purchase Price. (d) Each party that is eligible for indemnification under this Article IX, as the case may be, in respect of a Damage or cost and expense shall use its commercially reasonable efforts consistent with requirements of Applicable Requirements with respect to mitigation of damages to mitigate such Damage in a commercially reasonable manner; provided, however, that such mitigation will not cause such indemnified party to incur any costs and expenses without being reimbursed therefor; and, provided further, the failure to mitigate by a party shall not affect the indemnifying Party’s obligation to indemnify the indemnified party or parties except to the extent such failure to mitigate results in any material prejudice to the indemnifying Party and then only to the extent of such material prejudice and a violation of requirements of Applicable Requirements with respect to mitigation of damages. Each such indemnified party shall furthermore reasonably cooperate with the indemnifying Party, at the indemnifying Party’s reasonable request and expense, in connection with any efforts by the indemnifying Party to mitigate such Damage. (e) The Buyer Indemnitees and Seller Indemnitees shall use commercially reasonable efforts to fully enforce the Confirmation Order with respect to any Lien, Liability or other matter whose treatment is addressed in the Confirmation Order before making a claim pursuant to this Article IX with respect to such matters, it being understood that the Confirmation Order shall be used first to defend against any Lien, Liability or other matter whose treatment is addressed in the Confirmation Order before making an indemnification claim pursuant to this Article IX with respect to such matters; provided, however, that the costs and expenses of any Buyer Indemnitee or Seller Indemnitee of such enforcement of the Confirmation Order shall constitute Damages for the purposes of this Agreement and shall not be subject to the De Minimis Amount. (f) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Sellers shall only be required to indemnify Buyer under Section 9.2(d) for any Damages incurred with respect to GNMA Pre-Closing Liabilities to the extent that such Damages exceed forty percent (40%) of the amount of the Liabilities for originations set forth in the Final Statement in respect of the GNMA Pre-Closing Liabilities. (g) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, any Person making an Indemnification Claim under this Article IX must give notice to the indemnifying party of any 95


 
such Indemnification Claim in writing in reasonable detail prior to the expiration of the second (2nd) anniversary of the Closing Date. Any Indemnification Claim not made on or prior to that date will be irrevocably and unconditionally released and waived. Section 9.8 Indemnification Escrow Amount. The Parties agree that payment of any claims indemnifiable by Sellers in accordance with this Article IX from the available amounts in the Indemnification Escrow Account will be the sole and exclusive remedy and source of recovery for payment of such indemnification obligations of the Sellers, other than in the case of Fraud. MISCELLANEOUS Section 10.1 Expenses. Except as otherwise expressly set forth herein, each Party will bear its own costs and expenses incurred in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including all fees of law firms, commercial banks, investment banks, accountants, public relations firms, experts and consultants. For the avoidance of doubt, Buyer shall pay all recording fees arising from the transfer of the Acquired Assets. Section 10.2 Entire Agreement. This Agreement, the Related Agreements and the Confidentiality Agreement constitute the entire agreement between the Parties and supersede any prior understandings, agreements or representations (whether written or oral) by or between the Parties to the extent they relate in any way to the subject matter hereof. Section 10.3 Incorporation of Exhibits and Disclosure Schedule. The Exhibits to this Agreement and the Disclosure Schedule are incorporated herein by reference and made a part hereof. Section 10.4 Amendments and Waivers. No amendment of any provision of this Agreement shall be valid unless the same shall be in writing and signed by each Party. No waiver of any breach of this Agreement shall be construed as an implied amendment or agreement to amend or modify any other provision of this Agreement. No waiver by any Party of any default, misrepresentation or breach of warranty or covenant hereunder, whether intentional or not, shall be valid unless the same shall be in writing and signed by the Party making such waiver, nor shall such waiver be deemed to extend to any prior or subsequent default, misrepresentation or breach of warranty or covenant hereunder or affect in any way any rights arising by virtue of any prior or subsequent default, misrepresentation or breach of warranty or covenant. No conditions, course of dealing or performance, understanding or agreement purporting to modify, vary, explain, or supplement the terms or conditions of this Agreement shall be binding unless this Agreement is amended or modified in writing pursuant to the first sentence of this Section 10.4 except as expressly provided herein. Except where a specific period for action or inaction is provided herein, no delay on the part of any Party in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof. Section 10.5 Succession and Assignment. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns. No Party may assign either this Agreement or any of its rights, interests, or obligations hereunder without 96


 
the prior written consent of the other Parties; provided that, notwithstanding the foregoing, without obtaining such prior written consent Buyer may assign either this Agreement or any of its rights, interests, or obligations hereunder to an Affiliate of Buyer at any time in its discretion (including, for the avoidance of doubt, an assignment by Buyer to one or more of its Affiliates of Buyer’s rights hereunder to acquire any Acquired Assets and/or assume any Assumed Liabilities), provided, however, that Buyer shall not be relieved of its obligations hereunder in the event of such assignment to an Affiliate.

To assure accuracy of the instructions it receives, the Escrow Agent may record such call backs. If the Escrow Agent is unable to verify the instructions, or is not satisfied with the verification it receives, it will not execute the instruction until all such issues have been resolved. The persons and telephone numbers for call backs may be changed only in writing, executed by an authorized signer of applicable Party set forth on Exhibit A-1 or Exhibit A-2, actually received and acknowledged by the Escrow Agent. (b) Certain Definitions. (i) “Business Day” means any day, other than a Saturday, Sunday and any day which is a legal holiday under the Laws of the State of New York or is a day on which banking institutions located in the State of New York are authorized or required by Law or other governmental action to close.

hand, and the Purchase Agreement, on the other, shall be resolved in favor of the Purchase Agreement, and (ii) no provision of this Agreement (including all schedules) shall limit or alter any term or obligations of Buyer and Sellers created, originating or referred to in the Purchase Agreement. 5. Escrow Agent. The Escrow Agent undertakes to perform only such duties as are expressly set forth herein, which shall be deemed purely ministerial in nature, and no other duties, including but not limited to any fiduciary duties, shall be implied. The Escrow Agent shall neither be responsible for, nor chargeable with knowledge of, nor have any requirements to comply with, the terms and conditions of any other agreement, instrument or document between the Parties, nor shall the Escrow Agent be required to determine if any Person has complied with any such agreements, nor shall any additional obligations of the Escrow Agent be inferred from the terms of such agreements, even though reference thereto may be made in this Agreement. Notwithstanding the terms of any other agreement between the Parties, the terms and conditions of this Agreement will control the actions of the Escrow Agent. The Escrow Agent may rely upon and shall not be liable for acting or refraining from acting upon any Joint Release Instruction or Final Determination furnished to it hereunder and believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed and presented by an authorized signer of the proper Party or Parties. Concurrent with the execution of this Agreement, the Parties shall deliver to the Escrow Agent authorized signers’ forms in the form of Exhibit A-1 and Exhibit A-2 attached hereto. The Escrow Agent shall be under no duty to inquire into or investigate the validity, accuracy or content of any such document, notice, instruction or request. The Escrow Agent shall have no duty to solicit any payments which may be due it or the Escrow Funds. In the event that the Escrow Agent shall be uncertain as to its duties or rights hereunder or shall receive instructions, claims or demands from any Party hereto which, in its opinion, conflict with any of the provisions of this Agreement, it shall be entitled to refrain from taking any action and its sole obligation shall be to keep safely all property held in escrow until it shall be directed otherwise in a Joint Release Instruction or Final Determination. The Escrow Agent may interplead all of the assets held hereunder into a court of competent jurisdiction or may seek a declaratory judgment with respect to certain circumstances, and thereafter be fully relieved from any and all liability or obligation with respect to such interpleaded assets or any action or nonaction based on such declaratory judgment. The Escrow Agent may consult with legal counsel of its selection in the event of any dispute or question as to the meaning or construction of any of the provisions hereof or its duties hereunder. The Escrow Agent will not be liable for any action taken, suffered or omitted to be taken by it in good faith except to the extent that the Escrow Agent’s gross negligence or willful misconduct was the cause of any direct loss to either Party. To the extent reasonably practicable, the Parties agree to pursue any redress or recourse in connection with any dispute without making the Escrow Agent a party to the same. Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, in no event shall the Escrow Agent be liable for any special, indirect, punitive, incidental or consequential losses or damages of any kind whatsoever (including but not limited to lost profits), even if the Escrow Agent has been advised of the likelihood of such losses or damages and regardless of the form of action, except in the case of the Escrow Agent’s fraud, gross negligence or willful misconduct as adjudicated by a court of competent jurisdiction. 6. Resignation and Removal of Escrow Agent. The Escrow Agent (a) may resign and be discharged from its duties or obligations hereunder by giving sixty (60) calendar days advance notice in writing of such resignation to the Parties specifying a date when such resignation shall 5 WEIL:\96975875\20\41703.0011


 
take effect or (b) may be removed, with or without cause, by Buyer and Seller acting jointly at any time by providing written notice to the Escrow Agent; provided that any such resignation or removal shall not relieve the Escrow Agent from any liability that arose from any action or inaction that occurred prior to the effective date of such resignation or removal. Any entity into which the Escrow Agent may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated, or any corporation or association to which all or substantially all of the escrow business of the Escrow Agent’s line of business may be transferred, shall be the Escrow Agent under this Agreement without further act. The Escrow Agent’s sole responsibility after such sixty (60) day notice period expires or after receipt of written notice of removal shall be to hold and safeguard the Escrow Funds (without any obligation to reinvest the same) and to deliver the same (i) to a substitute or successor escrow agent pursuant to a joint written designation from the Parties, (ii) as set forth in a Joint Release Instruction or (iii) in accordance with the directions of a Final Determination, and, at the time of such delivery, the Escrow Agent’s obligations hereunder shall cease and terminate. In the event the Escrow Agent resigns, if the Parties have failed to appoint a successor escrow agent prior to the expiration of sixty (60) calendar days following receipt of the notice of resignation, the Escrow Agent may petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of such a successor escrow agent or for other appropriate relief, and any such resulting appointment shall be binding upon all of the parties hereto. 7. Fees and Expenses. All fees and expenses of the Escrow Agent are described in Schedule 1 attached hereto and shall be paid fifty percent by Buyer and fifty percent by Seller. The fees agreed upon for the services to be rendered hereunder are intended as full compensation for the Escrow Agent’s services as contemplated by this Agreement. 8. Indemnity. Each of the Parties shall jointly and severally indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Escrow Agent and its affiliates and their respective successors, assigns, directors, officers, agents and employees (the “Indemnitees”) from and against and with respect to, any and all losses, damages, claims, liabilities, penalties, judgments, settlements, actions, suits, proceedings, litigation, investigations, costs or expenses (including the reasonable and documented fees and expenses of one outside counsel and experts and their staffs and all expense of document location, duplication and shipment) (collectively “Escrow Agent Losses”) actually incurred in connection with (a) the Escrow Agent’s execution and performance of this Agreement, tax reporting or withholding, the enforcement of any rights or remedies under or in connection with this Agreement, or as may arise by reason of any act, omission or error of the Indemnitee in connection with this Agreement, except to the extent that such Escrow Agent Losses, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction, in a final non-appealable judgment, have been caused by the fraud, gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee, or (b) its following any instructions or other directions from the Parties received in accordance with this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Buyer and Seller agree, solely as between themselves, that any obligation for indemnification under this Section 8 (or for reasonable fees and expenses of the Escrow Agent described in Section 7) shall be borne by the Party or Parties determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable judgment to be responsible for causing the loss, damage, liability, cost or expense against which the Escrow Agent is entitled to indemnification or, if no such determination is made, then one half by Buyer and one half by Seller. The Parties acknowledge that the foregoing indemnities shall survive the resignation or removal of the Escrow Agent or the termination of this Agreement. 6 WEIL:\96975875\20\41703.0011


 
9. Tax Matters. (a) Buyer shall be responsible for and the taxpayer on all taxes due on the interest or income earned, if any, on the Escrow Funds for the calendar year in which such interest or income is earned. Prior to the date hereof, the Parties shall provide the Escrow Agent with certified tax identification numbers by furnishing correct, duly completed, dated and executed current IRS Forms W-9 or W-8, as applicable, and including such other supporting forms and documents that the Escrow Agent may reasonably request to validate the form provided. If the Escrow Agent has not received IRS Forms W-9 or W-8 five (5) days prior to the date hereof, the Escrow Agent shall request such forms from the Parties. (b) The Escrow Agent shall be responsible for satisfying any applicable tax reporting requirements (including any applicable IRS Form 1099) in accordance with this Section 9. The Escrow Agent shall withhold any taxes required to be withheld by applicable Law, including but not limited to required withholding in the absence of proper tax documentation, and shall remit such taxes to the appropriate authorities. (c) The Escrow Agent, its affiliates, and its employees are not in the business of providing tax or legal advice to any taxpayer outside of Citigroup, Inc. and its affiliates. This Agreement and any amendments or attachments hereto are not intended or written to be used, and may not be used or relied upon, by any such taxpayer or for the purpose of avoiding tax penalties. Any such taxpayer should seek advice based on the taxpayer's particular circumstances from an independent tax advisor. 10. Covenant of Escrow Agent. The Escrow Agent hereby agrees and covenants with Buyer and Seller that it shall perform all of its obligations under this Agreement and shall not deliver custody or possession of any of the Escrow Funds to anyone except pursuant to the express terms of this Agreement or as otherwise required by Law. 11. Notices. Subject to Section 4(a)(iv), all notices, requests, demands and other communications required under this Agreement shall be in writing, in English, and shall be deemed to have been duly given if delivered (i) personally, (ii) by facsimile transmission with written confirmation of receipt, (iii) on day of transmission if sent by electronic mail (“e-mail”) with a PDF attachment executed by an authorized signer of the party/ parties hereto to the e-mail address given below, and written confirmation of receipt is obtained promptly after completion of the transmission, (iv) by overnight delivery with a reputable national overnight delivery service (with delivery confirmation requested), or (v) by mail or by certified mail, return receipt requested, and postage prepaid.

This Agreement (and any claims, disputes, rights and obligations of the hereunder (whether based on Contract, tort or any other theory) directly or indirectly based upon or arising out of this Agreement or the negotiation, execution or performance of this Agreement) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal Laws of the State of New York (without giving effect to the principles of conflict of Laws thereof), except to the extent that the Laws of such state are superseded by the Bankruptcy Code. Each of the parties hereto irrevocably and unconditionally submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Bankruptcy Court in any Litigation arising out of or relating to this Agreement and agrees that all claims in respect of such Litigation may be heard and determined in such court.

Any party hereto may make service on any other party hereto by sending or delivering a copy of the process to the party to be served at the address and in the manner provided for the giving of notices in Section 11; provided, however, that nothing in this Section 13 shall affect the right of any party hereto to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by Law or in equity. Each party hereto agrees that a final judgment in any Litigation so brought shall be conclusive and may be enforced by Litigation or in any other manner provided by Law or in equity.

The Parties represent, warrant and covenant that each document, notice, instruction or request provided by such Party to the Escrow Agent shall comply with applicable Laws and regulations. Where, however, the conflicting provisions of any such applicable Law may be waived, they are hereby irrevocably waived by the parties hereto to the fullest extent permitted by Law, to the end that this Agreement shall be enforced as written. Except as expressly provided in Section 8, nothing in this Agreement, whether express or implied, shall be construed to give to any person or entity other than the Escrow Agent and the Parties any legal or equitable right, remedy, interest or claim under or in respect of this Agreement or any funds escrowed hereunder. 14. Compliance with Court Orders.

16. Assignment. No assignment of the interest of any of the Parties shall be binding upon the Escrow Agent unless and until written notice of such assignment shall be filed with and consented to by the Escrow Agent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld). Any transfer or assignment of the rights, interests or obligations hereunder in violation of the terms hereof shall be void and of no force or effect. 17. Force Majeure. The Escrow Agent shall not incur any liability for not performing any act or fulfilling any obligation hereunder by reason of any occurrence beyond its control (including, but not limited to, any provision of any present or future law or regulation or any act of any governmental authority, any act of God or war or terrorism, or the unavailability of the Federal Reserve Bank wire services or any electronic communication facility), it being understood that the Escrow Agent shall use commercially reasonable efforts which are consistent with accepted practices in the banking industry to resume performance as soon as reasonably practicable under the circumstances. 18. Compliance with Federal Law. To help the U.S. Government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities and to comply with Federal law requiring financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information on the source of funds deposited to an account, the Parties agree to provide the Escrow Agent with the name, address, taxpayer identification number, and remitting bank for all Parties depositing funds at Citibank pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. For a non-individual person such as a business entity, a charity, a trust or other legal entity, the Escrow Agent will ask for documentation to verify its formation and existence as a legal entity.

Section 4.06 Mortgage Loans and Servicing Rights. 4.6.1 General Compliance. Each Mortgage Loan, Servicing Right and Advance conforms to the Applicable Requirements except, in each case, as would not be reasonably expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, and each Mortgage Loan was eligible for sale to, insurance by, or pooling to back securities issued or guaranteed by, or participation certificates issued by, the applicable Agency, Investor, Insurer or other Person upon such sale, issuance of insurance or pooling, if any. To the Seller’s knowledge, there has been no improper act or omission or alleged improper act or omission, or error by any Originator or Prior Servicer with respect to the origination, underwriting or servicing of any of the Mortgage Loans; and there has been no improper act or omission or alleged improper act or omission, or error by the Seller or any Originator or Prior Servicer with respect to the origination, underwriting or servicing of any of the Mortgage Loans. Each Mortgage Loan has been originated, underwritten and serviced in compliance with all Applicable Requirements and Accepted Servicing Practices except as would not be reasonably expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. All collection efforts by or on behalf of the Seller have been performed timely, prudently and in compliance with all Applicable Requirements and Accepted Servicing Practices and, other than as set forth on Schedule 4.6.1, all “first legal” actions with respect to Mortgage Loans insured by the FHA were timely achieved in accordance with Applicable Requirements, except as would not be reasonably expected to have a Material Adverse Effect with respect to the applicable Mortgage Loan or the related Servicing Rights. The Seller is not in default and is otherwise in material compliance with respect to the Seller’s obligations under the Servicing Agreements or Applicable Requirements. The Servicing Agreements do not contain any provisions that reasonably would be expected to impose upon the Purchaser or the Servicer any obligations in addition to those typically imposed upon servicers of standard Investor servicing rights. No servicer default, servicer termination event, event of default or other default or breach has occurred by the Seller under any Servicing Agreement, and to the Seller’s knowledge, no event has occurred which with the passage of time or the giving of notice or both would: (A) constitute a material default or breach by the Seller under any Servicing Agreement or under any Applicable Requirement; (B) permit termination, modification or amendment of any such Servicing Agreement by a third party without the consent of the Seller; (C) enable any third party to demand that either the Seller or the Purchaser either incur any repurchase obligations pursuant to a Servicing Agreement or provide indemnification for any amount of losses relating to a breach of a loan representation or warranty; (D) impose on the Seller or the Purchaser sanctions or penalties in respect of any Servicing Agreement; or (E) rescind any 18 4124-8327-5548.26


 
insurance policy or reduce insurance benefits in respect of any Servicing Agreement which would result in a material breach or trigger a default of any obligation of the Seller under any Servicing Agreement, that in each case would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect on the Servicing Rights acquired by the Purchaser hereunder. With respect to each Bankruptcy Loan, the Seller has provided the related Mortgagor with all applicable disclosures relating to fees charged to the Mortgagor in connection with the related bankruptcy proceeding in accordance with all Applicable Requirements. 4.6.2 Enforceability of Mortgage Loan. Each Mortgage Loan is evidenced by a Mortgage Note and is duly secured by a Mortgage Instrument, in each case, on such forms and with such terms as comply with all Applicable Requirements. Each Mortgage Note and related Mortgage Instrument is genuine and each Mortgage Loan and related Mortgage Instrument is the legal, valid and binding obligation of the parties thereto and the maker thereof, enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject to bankruptcy, insolvency and similar laws affecting generally the enforcement of creditors’ rights and the discretion of a court to grant specific performance. All parties to each such Mortgage Note and Mortgage Instrument had legal capacity to execute such Mortgage Note and Mortgage Instrument and each Mortgage Note and Mortgage Instrument has been duly and properly executed by such parties. No Mortgage Loan is subject to any rights of rescission, set- off, counterclaim or defense, including the defense of usury, nor will the operation of any of the terms of the related Mortgage Note or Mortgage Instrument, or the exercise of any right thereunder, render either such Mortgage Note or such Mortgage Instrument unenforceable by the Seller or the Purchaser, in whole or in part, or subject to any right of rescission, set-off, counterclaim or defense, including the defense of usury, and no such right of rescission, set-off, counterclaim, or defense has been asserted with respect thereto. 4.6.3 Disbursement; Future Advances.

All costs, fees and expenses incurred in making, closing or recording each Mortgage Loan have been paid. Any future advances that were made in connection with a Mortgage Loan have been consolidated with the outstanding principal amount secured by the related Mortgage Instrument, and the secured principal amount, as consolidated, bears a single interest rate and single repayment term. The lien of the related Mortgage Instrument securing the consolidated principal amount is expressly insured as having first lien or second lien, as applicable, priority by a title insurance policy, if applicable, meeting the standards set forth in Section 4.6.5 of this Agreement. The consolidated principal amount does not exceed the original principal amount of such Mortgage Loan. 4.6.4 Priority of Lien. Each Mortgage Instrument has been duly acknowledged and recorded or sent for recordation and is a valid and subsisting first lien or second lien, as applicable, and each related Mortgaged Property is free and clear of all encumbrances and liens having priority over the lien of the related Mortgage Instrument, except for (i) liens for real estate taxes and special assessments not yet due and payable, (ii) covenants, conditions and restrictions, rights of way, easements and other matters of the public record as of the date of recording, acceptable to mortgage lending institutions generally (iii) with respect to Mortgage Instruments constituting second liens, first liens and (iv) other matters to which like properties are commonly subject which do not 19 4124-8327-5548.26


 
interfere with the benefits of the security intended to be provided by such Mortgage Instrument or the use, enjoyment, value or marketability of the related Mortgaged Property. There are no delinquent tax or assessment liens against any Mortgaged Property. All tax identifications and property descriptions in each Mortgage Instrument are legally sufficient. 4.6.5 Title Insurance. Except for any Mortgage Loan secured by a Mortgaged Property as to which an opinion of counsel of the type customarily rendered in such state in lieu of title insurance has been received and complies with Applicable Requirements, a valid and enforceable title policy, or a commitment to issue such a policy (with respect to which a title policy will be received to replace such commitment), has been issued and is in full force and effect for such Mortgage Loan in the amount not less than the original principal amount of such Mortgage Loan, which title policy insures that the related Mortgage Instrument is a valid first lien on the Mortgaged Property therein described and that such Mortgaged Property is free and clear of all liens having priority over the lien of such Mortgage Instrument. All provisions of such insurance policy have been and are being complied with, such policy is in full force and effect and all premiums due thereunder have been paid. As to each such policy, the Seller and any Originator and Prior Servicer have complied with all applicable provisions and all applicable statutes and regulations, there has been no act or omission which would or may invalidate any such policy, there has been no event or condition which may result in the revocation, cancellation or expiration of such policy, and the insurance is and will remain in full force and effect with respect to the related Mortgage Loan. There are no defenses, counterclaims, or rights of set-off against the Seller or any other Person affecting the validity or enforceability of any such policy. 4.6.6 No Default/No Waiver. Other than with respect to borrower payments that have not yet caused a mortgage loan to become a Delinquent Loan or Foreclosure Loan and as disclosed to the Purchaser on the Data Tape, there is no default, breach, violation or event of acceleration existing under any Mortgage Loan, and no event has occurred that, with the passage of time or with notice and the expiration of any grace or cure period, would constitute a default, breach, violation or event of acceleration. Except as disclosed to the Purchaser on the Data Tape, neither the Seller nor any Originator or Prior Servicer has, except in accordance with Applicable Requirements, (i) agreed to any material modification, extension or forbearance in connection with any Mortgage Note or Mortgage Instrument, (ii) released, satisfied or canceled any Mortgage Note or Mortgage Instrument in whole or in part or released any party thereto in whole or in part, (iii) subordinated any Mortgage Instrument in whole or in part, (iv) released any Mortgaged Property in whole or in part from the lien of any Mortgage Instrument or (v) induced, solicited or knowingly received any advance of funds by a party other than the Mortgagor, directly or indirectly, for the payment of any amount required under the Mortgage Loan. Within five (5) Business Days following the Servicing Transfer Date, the Seller shall provide the final report to the Purchaser, with respect to the Mortgage Loans, identifying all modifications, extensions or forbearances previously completed or currently in process and the terms thereof. All such modifications, extensions or forbearances are permitted and/or required by Accepted Servicing Practices or Applicable Requirements. 4.6.7 Application of Funds. All payments received by or on behalf of the Seller with respect to any Mortgage Loan have been remitted and properly accounted for in compliance with and as required by Applicable Requirements and Accepted Servicing Practices. 20 4124-8327-5548.26

The Mortgage Loan Documents contain customary and enforceable provisions that render the rights and remedies of the holder thereof adequate for the realization against the Mortgaged Property of the material benefits of the security provided thereby, including, (i) in the case of a Mortgage Instrument designated as a deed of trust, by trustee’s sale and (ii) with respect to a Mortgage Instrument related to a Mortgage Loan, by judicial foreclosure.

With respect to each Asset, upon gaining knowledge of the need to pay any Advance or other amount either (i) required to be paid pursuant to the applicable Guide or Servicing Agreement or (ii) that is advisable to be paid, as determined at the Servicer’s sole and reasonable discretion, pursuant to Accepted Servicing Practices to preserve the value of such Asset or the Servicing Rights related to such Asset, the Servicer may, in its sole discretion, pay such Advances or other amounts, or shall promptly notify the Purchaser of any such Advances or other amounts after gaining knowledge of the need or advisability of paying such amounts, in accordance with the guidelines set forth on Exhibit A attached hereto. In accordance with the guidelines attached hereto as Exhibit A, the Servicer shall promptly provide a loan level report and all 4 732543373 19621021 4165-7142-5052.16


 
reasonably necessary supporting documentation and invoices, upon the Servicer’s receipt of such supporting documentation and invoices, with respect to such Advances or other amounts necessary for the Purchaser to determine whether such Advances or other amounts are required or advisable to be paid and are reimbursable in accordance with Applicable Requirements.

All Custodial Accounts shall be maintained by and carried in the records of Servicer in trust for the Purchaser, the applicable Agency, securitization trust or trustee and/or Mortgagors, as applicable, except as may otherwise be required by Applicable Requirements. Section 2.03. Escrow Accounts. The Servicer shall ensure that an escrow account is established or maintained for each Asset (each, an “Escrow Account” and, collectively, the “Escrow Account”), as necessary or applicable, in accordance with Applicable Requirements and Accepted Servicing Practices. The Servicer shall be responsible for all matters relating to the administration of the Escrow Accounts, including without limitation, (i) the application of funds to a borrower’s Escrow Account, (ii) the disbursement of funds to the proper parties for escrowed items when due, (iii) payment of interest on funds deposited into such Escrow Accounts to the extent required by applicable law, (iv) performance of an annual escrow analysis if applicable, and (v) maintenance of all records with respect to such Escrow Accounts, in accordance with Accepted Servicing Practices. During the Interim Servicing Period, if adequate funds are not available in the Escrow Account at the Asset level to pay escrowed items when due, the Servicer may, in its sole discretion, advance from its own funds sufficient funds to cover any such deficiency, or shall promptly, after gaining knowledge of such deficiency, notify the Purchaser of the amount of such deficient funds and the Purchaser shall promptly pay sufficient funds to cover any 5 732543373 19621021 4165-7142-5052.16


 
such deficiency in a manner to ensure payment of such escrowed items prior to the time at which a penalty for late payment would be assessed; provided, however, that the Purchaser shall be responsible for any documented fees, costs, expenses or penalties incurred by the Servicer as a result of the Purchaser failing, after receiving notice from the Servicer pursuant to this Section 2.03, to provide sufficient funds to cover any deficiency in the applicable Escrow Accounts or to provide such funds with enough time to prevent any penalty from being assessed or any fees being incurred by the Servicer. Any payments made by the Servicer pursuant to this section shall be reimbursable in accordance with Section 2.07(d) below. Section 2.04. Maintenance of Fidelity Bond and Errors and Omissions Insurance. The Servicer shall maintain with responsible companies a blanket fidelity bond and an errors and omissions insurance policy, with broad coverage on all officers, employees or other persons acting in any capacity that requires such persons to handle funds, money, documents or papers relating to the Assets, in amounts as required by the Applicable Requirements. The Servicer shall provide Purchaser with an electronic copy of such insurance policy or policies and fidelity bond upon Purchaser’s written request. Section 2.05.

Exhibit A Advance Guidelines Overview: This memo addresses the funding of corporate and escrow advances during the Interim Servicing Agreement (“ISA”) period. While both the Purchaser and Seller (“Ditech” or “the company”) have conceptual agreement the following provides a summary level outline of the proposed process. General Procedure: . Ditech shall provide the Purchaser written notice of the advance amounts required to be deposited in such Account(s) so that the Account(s) will have funds on deposit at least equal to the amount required to be paid to the applicable Investor, Attorney firm and/or applicable servicer provider. . The company shall provide the Purchaser written notice (via e-mail) as far in advance of the required funding as is possible and no less than two (2) Business Days, unless indicated otherwise below, prior to the required funding date, at which time the Purchaser will wire the appropriate funds into the designated bank account(s). . As recoveries are received they will be netted against the advance requirement. Corporate Advances: . The company currently operates its corporate advance expense payment processing on a 30-calendar day schedule. Therefore, the company will have a forward view of those expenses which will be paid on a rolling 30 calendar day basis. The company will provide Purchaser with a report monthly reflecting the corporate advances to be paid over the next 30 days. The report will be provided monthly by the 5th business day. . On a weekly basis the company will send a report of the invoices that were reviewed and approved to be paid the following week. The report will be provided by end of day Tuesday with funds to be remitted by Purchaser as soon as reasonably possible but no later than by mid-day Friday. . The company will fully cooperate with Purchaser to file same day financing DDAR reports so that the Purchaser can obtain same day financing of such advances. Escrow Advances: A-1


 
. Due to the unpredictability of tax disbursements, the company receives a daily report of pending TAR disbursements from its tax service vendor CoreLogic. As an example, see the table below which was transmitted to Ditech from CoreLogic on Mon 6/3/2019 10:39 AM. PAY DATE 06/05/19 STATE LIEN COUNT TAR TOTAL $ ELD LDW CO 2,967 $3,275,602.75 6/15/2019 6/7/2019 ID 52 $33,756.32 6/20/2019 6/7/2019 IL 572 $780,044.31 6/21/2019 6/7/2019 VA 57 $36,113.25 6/15/2019 6/7/2019 Grand Total 3,648 $4,125,516.63 ELD – “Economic Loss Date” Last day to submit payment to taxing authority without accruing penalty LDW – “Last Day to Wire” for servicer to wire funds to tax service provider . The company currently advances funds for taxes and insurance (“T&I”) each month. No later than the 15th day of each month (or the following business day if the 15th falls on a non-work day), an estimate of T&I advances for the following month will be provided by the company to the Purchaser. A-2


 
. To the extent permissible, the company will adjust the timing of TAR disbursements to satisfy Purchaser’s request, subject to the limitations from its tax service provider and the local taxing authorities. . The company will have an estimate of the required funds necessary for the pending disbursement, and will fully cooperate with the Purchaser so that the Purchaser can file same day financing through filing advance financing DDARs as is conducted in the current DDAR process between the company and Purchaser. . On a daily basis, or when received (on days when no TAR is pending), the company will send a copy of the report received from CoreLogic (or have Purchaser added to current distribution list) as soon as reasonably possible. . As soon as reasonably possible after the receipt of a TAR report, the company will provide an estimate of the advance amount for the associated TAR disbursement. Available customer escrow funds will be applied per applicable requirements and the estimated advance amount will be the net of the required disbursement and available escrow funds. . The Purchaser will review and wire the requested amount to the company by the next business day. . The company will refund all surplus funds provided by the Purchaser by 4 PM on the day the final advance balance is known or the estimated advance balance is reduced. . On a daily basis, the company can provide a copy of the P111 Escrow advance and repay daily report (see example below) A-3
