the date of settlement, by the Guarantor and the Financing Institution in accordance with the guaranteed and unguaranteed percentages, respectively. All net recoveries after the date of settlement shall be shared on the same basis. The date of settlement shall be the thirtieth (30th) day after the date on which either party, after maturity of the loan, receives from the other party a written request for such settlement, or any other date agreed on by the parties.

(B) Expenses shall mean all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses (including reasonable counsel fees incurred by the Financing Institution or the Reserve Bank prior to but not after any purchase under this agreement) which relate to the enforcement of the loan or the preservation of the collateral and which are incurred during the period of any default in the payment of principal or interest.

SEC. 3. Agreement to purchase. The Guarantor will at any time and from time to time prior to the date of settlement purchase such portion of the obligation as may be demanded in writing by the Financing Institution, by paving to the Financing Institution, on the tenth (10th) day after the receipt by the Reserve Bank of such a demand, the unpaid principal amount of the portion of the obligation to be purchased, as of the date of the demand, plus all unpaid accrued interest on such amount, with appropriate adjustment for guarantee fees, computed as of the date of purchase; provided that in no event shall the total amount of the portion of the obligation owned by the Guarantor exceed the guaranteed percentage.

SEC. 4. Voluntary purchase by guarantor. The Guarantor may, at any time upon its demand, purchase the guaranteed percentage of the obligation, less any amounts previously purchased under this agreement and not repaid, and shall pay therefor on the basis stated in section 3. In such event, at the option of the Financing Institution or the Guarantor, the Financing Istitution shall forthwith transfer possession of the obligation and collateral in the manner provided in section 5.

SEC. 5. Administration of loan and possession of obligation and collateral. (A) The Financing Institution shall administer the loan until it transfers possession of the obligation and collateral to the Reserve Bank as provided below, and thereafter the Guarantor shall administer the loan. Whenever the Guarantor purchases any part of the obligation, the Financing Institution shall forthwith deliver to the Reserve Bank a certificate evidencing the Guarantor's ownership interest in the obligation and collateral. In any such case, however, upon written demand by the Reserve Bank, the Financing Institution shall forthwith transfer to the Reserve Bank, without recourse or warranty except as to the genuineness of the Borrower's signature to any instrument, such possession of, title

to, and rights to enforce the obligation and all collateral therefor as it may have. Thereupon the Reserve Bank shall issue to the Financing Institution a certificate evidencing the Financing Institution's ownership interest in the obligation and collateral. Either party administering the loan may (1) release and dispose of collateral and proceeds thereof, and permit substitution therefor, all in accordance with the terms of the loan, and (2) after five days' written notice to the other party, bring any action to enforce the loan.

(B) Nothing in this agreement shall prevent the Financing Institution from transferring the obligation as collateral for advances by a Federal Reserve Bank,

Sec. 6. Ratable application of collections. All amounts at any time paid or credited on the obligation, from whatever sources realized, shall be applied ratably for the benefit of the Financing Institution and the Guarantor according to their respective ownership interests in the obligation. Except as may be provided in the loan, the Financing Institution shall not be required to credit on the obligation the proceeds of any banker's lien or right of set-off with respect to funds of the Borrower (exclusive of proceeds of contracts on Exhibit C to Appendix I) or of other assets, to the extent that the Financing Institution has provided that such llen, right of set-off or other assets shall be security for other indebtedness of the Borrower to it.

SEC. 7. Fees payable to guarantor. The Financing Institution shall pay to the Reserve Bank at the end of each monthly or quarterly period, as fixed by the Reserve Bank, an amount equal to percent of any interest payable by the Borrower on the average daily amounts of that part of the unpaid principal of the obligation which the Guarantor was obligated during such period to purchase upon demand of the Financing Institution.

Sec. 8. Effect of violation of agreement. (A) If the Financing Institution shall violate, or fail to comply with, any of the terms of this agreement or any of the terms or conditions of the loan or shall through gross negligence make a material misrepresentation of fact in the application therefor, or in anything constituting a part of the application, It shall become liable to the Guarantor in an amount equal to the damages sustained by the latter by virtue of such violation, failure to comply, or misrepresentation; but the Guarantor shall not be relieved by such violation, failure to comply, or misrepresentation from any of its obligations to the Financing Institution under this agreement.

(B) In the absence of gross negligence on the part of the Financing Institution, (1) no invalidity or ineffectiveness of any collateral or of any assignment thereof accepted by the Financing Institution, and (2) no action or omission to act on the part of the Financing Institution in reliance on a statement or certificate signed by an appropriate officer

or member of the Borrower with respect to the financial condition, business or operations of the Borrower, shall constitute a violation of, or failure to comply with, any of the terms of this agreement or any of the terms or conditions of the loan on the part of the Financing Institution. No invalidity of any provision of the loan arising from statute or decision of any court shall in any way relieve the Guarantor hereunder.

SEC. 9. Officials not to benefit. No member of or delegate to Congress or resident commissioner shall be admitted to any share or part of this contract or to any benefit that may arise therefrom, but this provision shall not be construed to extend to this contract if made with a corporation for its general benefit.
