AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED) NOTE 1 - BACKGROUND These condensed consolidated financial statements of Silverleaf Resorts, Inc. and subsidiaries ("the Company") presented herein do not include certain information and disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. However, in the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2000 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2000. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and footnotes included in the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 1999 (File No. 001-13003) as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The accounting policies used in preparing these condensed consolidated financial statements are the same as those described in such Form 10-K. Certain previously reported amounts, however, have been reclassified to conform to the 2000 presentation. SFAS No. 133 -- In June 1998, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standard No. 133, "Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities" ("SFAS No. 133"). SFAS No. 133, as amended, is effective for fiscal years beginning after June 15, 2000 and will be adopted for the period beginning January 1, 2001. SFAS No. 133 requires that all derivative instruments be recorded on the balance sheet at their fair value. Changes in the fair value of the derivatives are recorded each period in current earnings or other comprehensive income depending on whether a derivative is designated as part of a hedge transaction, and if it is, the type of hedge transaction. The impact of SFAS No. 133 on the Company's results of operations, financial position, or cash flows will be dependent on the level and types of derivative instruments the Company will have entered into at the time the standard is implemented.

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS Certain matters discussed throughout this Form 10-Q filing are forward looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those discussed in the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 1999 (File No. 001-13003). The Company currently owns and/or operates 22 resorts in various stages of development. These resorts offer a wide array of country club-like amenities, such as golf, swimming, horseback riding, boating, and many organized activities for children and adults. The Company represents an owner base of over 113,000. The condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company include the accounts of Silverleaf Resorts, Inc. and its subsidiaries, all of which are wholly owned. RESULTS OF OPERATIONS The following table sets forth certain operating information for the Company.
Three Months Ended Nine Months Ended September 30, September 30, ------------------------ ------------------------ 2000 1999 2000 1999 ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- As a percentage of total revenues: Vacation Interval sales 81.9% 82.4% 82.6% 82.9% Sampler sales 2.5% 2.0% 2.0% 2.0% ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- Total sales 84.4% 84.4% 84.6% 84.9% Interest income 13.0% 12.3% 13.2% 12.0% Management fee income 0.2% 1.1% 0.3% 1.3% Other income 2.4% 2.2% 1.9% 1.8% ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- Total revenues 100.0% 100.0% 100.0% 100.0% As a percentage of Vacation Interval sales: Cost of Vacation Interval sales 17.7% 15.4% 17.7% 15.3% Provision for uncollectible notes 10.0% 10.0% 10.0% 10.0% As a percentage of total sales: Sales and marketing 50.6% 51.4% 52.7% 50.5% As a percentage of total revenues: Operating, general and administrative 9.5% 10.0% 10.0% 10.0% Other expense 1.3% 1.6% 1.4% 1.5% Depreciation and amortization 2.5% 2.3% 2.6% 2.4% As a percentage of interest income: Interest expense 91.5% 59.7% 82.8% 57.7%
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2000 AND 1999 Revenues Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2000 were $75.5 million, representing a $14.0 million or 22.7% increase over revenues of $61.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 1999. The increase was primarily due to an $11.1 million increase in sales of Vacation Intervals and a $2.2 million increase in interest income. The strong increase in Vacation Interval sales primarily resulted from an increase in the number of upgrade sales for the third quarter of 2000 versus the same period of 1999, increased sales and improved closing percentages at several sales offices, and increased sales prices. 8 11 In the third quarter of 2000, the number of Vacation Intervals sold, exclusive of in-house Vacation Intervals, increased 14.4% to 4,517 from 3,948 in the same period of 1999; and the average price per interval increased 4.2% to $9,751 from $9,357. Total interval sales for the third quarter of 2000 included 1,723 biennial intervals (counted as 862 Vacation Intervals) compared to 1,514 (757 Vacation Intervals) in the third quarter of 1999. The Company increased sales of upgraded intervals through the continued implementation of marketing and sales programs focused on selling upgraded intervals to the Company's existing Vacation Interval owners. In July 2000, the Company began to offer a downgrade product to delinquent customers as a mechanism for lowering such customers' monthly installment payments. Including these downgrades, 4,804 in-house Vacation Intervals were sold at an average price of $3,702 during the third quarter of 2000, compared to 3,152 upgraded Vacation Intervals sold at an average price of $4,367 during the comparable 1999 period. Excluding downgrades, 4,406 upgrades were sold during the third quarter of 2000, at an average price of $4,797. Sampler sales increased $644,000 to $1.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2000, compared to $1.2 million for the same period in 1999. The increase relates to an increase in sales contracts and the timing of revenue recognition which corresponds to when purchasers of samplers utilize their stays. Interest income increased 29.7% to $9.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2000, from $7.6 million for the same period of 1999. This increase primarily resulted from a $130.6 million increase in notes receivable, net of allowance for uncollectible notes, since September 30, 1999, due to increased sales. Management fee income, which consists of management fees collected from the resorts' management clubs, can not exceed the management clubs' net income. Management fee income decreased $528,000 for the third quarter of 2000, as compared to the third quarter of 1999, due to increased operating expenses at the management clubs. Other income consists of water and utilities income, condominium rental income, marina income, golf course and pro shop income, and other miscellaneous items. Other income increased $499,000 to $1.8 million for the third quarter of 2000 compared to $1.3 million for the same period of 1999. The increase primarily relates to a gain of $317,000 associated with the sale of land. The increase also relates to growth in water and utilities income and increased golf course and pro shop income at two resorts. Cost of Sales Cost of sales as a percentage of Vacation Interval sales increased to 17.7% in the third quarter of 2000, from 15.4% for the same period of 1999. As the Company continues to deplete its inventory of low-cost Vacation Intervals acquired primarily in 1995 and 1996, the Company's sales mix has shifted to more recently constructed units, which were built at a higher average cost per Vacation Interval. Hence, the cost of sales as a percentage of Vacation Interval sales has increased compared to 1999. This increase, however, was partially offset by increased sales prices since the third quarter of 1999. Sales and Marketing Sales and marketing costs as a percentage of total sales decreased to 50.6% for the quarter ended September 30, 2000, from 51.4% for the same period of 1999. The Company realized efficiency improvements in its marketing processes during the third quarter of 2000, specifically in its staffing of available training resources and in its transition towards increased reliance on national retail chains for its leads generation efforts. Provision for Uncollectible Notes The provision for uncollectible notes as a percentage of Vacation Interval sales was unchanged at 10.0% for the third quarter of 2000, compared to the third quarter of 1999. Operating, General and Administrative Operating, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of total revenues decreased to 9.5% for the third quarter of 2000, compared to 10.0% for the same period of 1999. Overall, operating, general and administrative expenses increased $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2000, as compared to 1999, primarily due to increased 9 12 headcount, higher salaries, increased legal expense, and increased title and recording fees due to increased borrowings against pledged notes receivable. Other Expense Other expense consists of water and utilities expenses, golf course and pro shop expenses, marina expenses, and other miscellaneous expenses. Other expense as a percentage of total revenues decreased to 1.3% for the quarter ended September 30, 2000, as compared to 1.6% for the quarter ended September 30, 1999. In absolute dollars, other expense was virtually unchanged in the quarter ended September 30, 2000 compared to the same 1999 period. Depreciation and Amortization Depreciation and amortization expense as a percentage of total revenues increased to 2.5% for the quarter ended September 30, 2000, compared to 2.3% for the quarter ended September 30, 1999. Overall, depreciation and amortization expense increased $454,000 for the third quarter of 2000, as compared to 1999, primarily due to investments in automated dialers, investments in telephone systems, and investments in a central marketing facility, which opened in September 1999. Interest Expense Interest expense as a percentage of interest income increased to 91.5% for the third quarter of 2000, from 59.7% for the same period of 1999. This increase is primarily the result of interest expense related to increased borrowings against pledged notes receivable. Also, the Company's weighted average cost of borrowing increased to 9.7% in the third quarter of 2000 compared to 9.1% in the third quarter of 1999. Income before Provision for Income Taxes and Extraordinary Item Income before provision for income taxes and extraordinary item decreased to $7.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2000, as compared to $8.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 1999, as a result of the above mentioned operating results. Provision for Income Taxes Provision for income taxes as a percentage of income before provision for income taxes and extraordinary item remained flat at 38.5% in the third quarter of 2000, as compared to the third quarter of 1999. Net Income Net income decreased to $4.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2000, as compared to $5.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 1999, as a result of the above mentioned operating results. RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2000 AND 1999 Revenues Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2000 were $211.7 million, representing a $44.8 million or 26.8% increase over revenues of $167.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 1999. The increase was primarily due to a $36.4 million increase in sales of Vacation Intervals and a $7.9 million increase in interest income. The strong increase in Vacation Interval sales primarily resulted from an increase in the number of upgrade sales for the first nine months of 2000 versus the same period of 1999, increased sales and improved closing percentages at several sales offices, and increased sales prices. In the first nine months of 2000, the number of Vacation Intervals sold, exclusive of in-house Vacation Intervals, increased 3.4% to 12,264 from 11,858 in the same period of 1999; and the average price per interval increased 12.9% to $9,798 from $8,680. Total interval sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2000 included 5,157 biennial intervals (counted as 2,579 Vacation Intervals) compared to 4,386 (2,193 Vacation Intervals) in the nine months ended September 30, 1999. The Company increased sales of upgraded intervals through the continued 10 13 implementation of marketing and sales programs focused on selling upgraded intervals to the Company's existing Vacation Interval owners. In July 2000, the Company began to offer a downgrade product to delinquent customers as a mechanism for lowering such customers' monthly installment payments. Including downgrades, 12,510 in-house Vacation Intervals were sold at an average price of $4,374 during the first nine months of 2000, compared to 8,162 upgraded Vacation Intervals sold at an average price of $4,356 during the comparable 1999 period. Excluding downgrades, 12,112 upgrades were sold during the nine months ended September 30, 2000, at an average price of $4,794. Sampler sales increased $898,000 to $4.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, compared to $3.3 million for the same period in 1999. The increase relates to an increase in sales contracts and the timing of revenue recognition which corresponds to when purchasers of samplers utilize their stays. Interest income increased 39.7% to $28.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, from $20.0 million for the same period of 1999. This increase primarily resulted from a $130.6 million increase in notes receivable, net of allowance for uncollectible notes, since September 30, 1999, due to increased sales. Management fee income, which consists of management fees collected from the resorts' management clubs, can not exceed the management clubs' net income. Management fee income decreased $1.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, as compared to the same period of 1999, due to increased operating expenses at the management clubs. Other income consists of water and utilities income, condominium rental income, marina income, golf course and pro shop income, and other miscellaneous items. Other income increased $1.0 million to $4.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, compared to $3.0 million for the same period of 1999. The increase consists of a $317,000 gain associated with the sale of land, growth in water and utilities income, and increased golf course and pro shop income at two resorts. Cost of Sales Cost of sales as a percentage of Vacation Interval sales increased to 17.7% in the nine months ended September 30, 2000, from 15.3% for the same period of 1999. As the Company continues to deplete its inventory of low-cost Vacation Intervals acquired primarily in 1995 and 1996, the Company's sales mix has shifted to more recently constructed units, which were built at a higher average cost per Vacation Interval. Hence, the cost of sales as a percentage of Vacation Interval sales increased compared to 1999. This increase, however, was partially offset by increased sales prices since September 30, 1999. Sales and Marketing Sales and marketing costs as a percentage of total sales increased to 52.7% for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, from 50.5% for the same period of 1999. Due to recent growth rates and implementation of new leads generation programs, the Company experienced relatively higher marketing costs in the first nine months of 2000. The Company increased its headcount at the call centers significantly since the third quarter of 1999, which created inefficiencies due to temporary lack of available training resources. The Company also moved towards reliance on national retail chains for its leads generation efforts, in addition to the traditional local programs. The transition to national programs was slower in generating leads than originally planned. In the third quarter of 2000, however, marketing efficiencies were realized as sales and marketing costs as a percentage of sales declined. Provision for Uncollectible Notes The provision for uncollectible notes as a percentage of Vacation Interval sales was unchanged at 10.0% for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, compared to the same period of 1999. Operating, General and Administrative Operating, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of total revenues remained unchanged at 10.0% for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 1999. Overall, operating, general and administrative expense increased $4.6 million, for the first nine months of 2000, as compared 11 14 to 1999, primarily due to increased headcount, higher salaries, increased legal expense, and increased title and recording fees due to increased borrowings against pledged notes receivable. Other Expense Other expense consists of water and utilities expenses, golf course and pro shop expenses, marina expenses, and other miscellaneous expenses. Other expense as a percentage of total revenues remained relatively flat at 1.4% for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, as compared to 1.5% for the same period of 1999. The $314,000 increase in other expense primarily relates to increased water and utilities expense. Depreciation and Amortization Depreciation and amortization expense as a percentage of total revenues increased to 2.6% for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, compared to 2.4% for the nine months ended September 30, 1999. Overall, depreciation and amortization expense increased $1.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, as compared to 1999, primarily due to investments in automated dialers, investments in telephone systems, and investments in a central marketing facility, which opened in September 1999. Interest Expense Interest expense as a percentage of interest income increased to 82.8% for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, from 57.7% for the same period of 1999. This increase is primarily the result of interest expense related to increased borrowings against pledged notes receivable. Also, the Company's weighted average cost of borrowing increased to 9.6% in the first nine months of 2000 compared to 9.2% in the first nine months of 1999. Income before Provision for Income Taxes and Extraordinary Item Income before provision for income taxes and extraordinary item decreased to $16.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, as compared to $25.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 1999, as a result of the above mentioned operating results. Provision for Income Taxes Provision for income taxes as a percentage of income before provision for income taxes and extraordinary item remained flat at 38.5% for the first nine months of 2000, as compared to the same period of 1999. Extraordinary Item The Company recognized an extraordinary gain of $316,000, net of income tax of $197,000, related to the early extinguishment of $1.0 million of 10 1/2% senior subordinated notes in the first nine months of 2000. There were no extraordinary items during the first nine months of 1999. Net Income Net income decreased to $10.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2000, as compared to $15.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 1999, as a result of the above mentioned operating results. LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES SOURCES OF CASH. The Company generates cash primarily from down payments on the sale of Vacation Intervals, sampler sales, collections of principal and interest on customer notes receivable from Vacation Interval owners, management fees, and resort and utility operations. During the nine months ended September 30, 2000, cash provided by operations was $6.9 million, compared to cash provided by operating activities of $2.9 million for the same period of 1999. The increase in cash provided by operating activities was primarily a result of the timing of inventory construction payments. The Company typically receives a 10% down payment on sales of Vacation Intervals and finances the remainder by receipt of a seven to ten year customer promissory note. The Company generates cash from financing of customer notes receivable (i) by borrowing at an advance rate of 70% to 85% of 12 15 eligible customer notes receivable and (ii) from the spread between interest received on customer notes receivable and interest paid on related borrowings. Because the Company uses significant amounts of cash in the development and marketing of Vacation Intervals, but collects cash on customer notes receivable over a seven-year to ten-year period, borrowing against receivables has historically been a necessary part of normal operations. For the nine months ended September 30, 2000 and 1999, cash provided by financing activities was $99.7 million and $87.4 million, respectively. The increase in net cash provided by financing activities was primarily due to decreased payments on borrowings during the nine months ended September 30, 2000, compared to the same period of 1999. As of September 30, 2000, the Company's credit facilities provide for loans of up to $335.0 million. At September 30, 2000, approximately $282.5 million of principal and interest related to advances under the credit facilities was outstanding. For the nine months ended September 30, 2000, the weighted average cost of funds for all borrowings, including the senior subordinated debt, was approximately 9.6%. The Company believes that with respect to its current operations and capital commitments, its borrowing capacity under existing third-party lending agreements, together with cash generated from operations and future borrowings, will be sufficient to meet the Company's working capital and capital expenditure needs through the year ended December 31, 2001. The Company will continue to review the possibility of extending its borrowing capacity with existing lenders or issuing additional debt or mortgage-backed securities to finance future acquisitions, refinance debt, finance mortgage receivables, and provide for other working capital purposes. USES OF CASH. Investing activities typically reflect a net use of cash as a result of loans to customers in connection with the Company's Vacation Interval sales, capital additions, and property acquisitions. Net cash used in investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2000 and 1999, was $103.8 million and $93.7 million, respectively. The increase was primarily due to the increased level of customer notes receivable resulting from higher sales volume, reduced capital expenditures, and $6.5 million of cash received in the first nine months of 1999 related to sales of equipment. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS Effective October 16, 2000, the Company reached a definitive agreement with a lender to increase its $40 million revolving loan agreement, due August 2005, to a $45 million revolving loan agreement. Effective October 30, 2000, the Company entered into a $100 million revolving credit agreement to finance Vacation Interval notes receivable through an off-balance-sheet special purpose entity, formed on October 16, 2000. The agreement has a term of 5 years. On November 1, 2000, the first funding of $41.4 million was drawn against this credit facility. PART II: OTHER INFORMATION ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS The Company is currently subject to litigation arising in the normal course of its business. From time to time, such litigation includes claims regarding employment, tort, contract, truth-in-lending, the marketing and sale of Vacation Intervals, and other consumer protection matters. Litigation has been initiated from time to time by persons seeking individual recoveries for themselves, as well as, in some instances, persons seeking recoveries on behalf of an alleged class. In the judgement of the Company, none of these lawsuits or claims against the Company, either individually or in the aggregate, is likely to have a material adverse effect on the Company, its business, results of operations, or financial condition.

ARTICLE VI. ADMINISTRATION AND SERVICING; CERTAIN COVENANTS SECTION 6.01 Appointment and Designation of the Servicer. The Borrower, the Lender and the Agent hereby appoint the Person designated by the Agent from time to time (with the approval of the Lender) pursuant to this Section 6.01 (the "Servicer"), as their agent to service, administer and collect the Pledged Receivables and otherwise to enforce their respective rights and interests in and under the Pledged Receivables and the other Pledged Assets. Subject to Section 6.14, the Servicer shall collect such Pledged Receivables under the conditions referred to above by means of the collection procedures as set forth in the Credit and Collection Policy, to the extent consistent with the provisions of this Article VI. The Servicer's authorization under this Agreement shall terminate on the Collection Date. Until the Agent gives notice to the Borrower of a designation of a new Servicer upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Servicer Default, or consents to the appointment by the Borrower of a new Servicer, SRI is hereby designated as, and hereby agrees to perform the duties and obligations of, the Servicer pursuant to the terms hereof at all times until the earlier of the Agent's designation of a new Servicer upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Servicer Default, the delivery by the Agent of its consent to the appointment by the Borrower of a new Servicer or the Collection Date. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Servicer Default, the Agent may at any time (with the approval of the Lender) designate as Servicer any Person to succeed SRI or any successor Servicer, on the condition in each case that any such Person so designated shall agree to perform the duties and obligations of the Servicer pursuant to the terms 63 68 hereof. Each of the Borrower and SRI hereby grants to any successor Servicer an irrevocable power of attorney and license to take any and all steps in the Borrower's, SRI's or the Servicer's name, as applicable, and on behalf of the Borrower or SRI, necessary or desirable, in the determination of such successor Servicer, to service, administer or collect any and all Pledged Receivables. (b) The Servicer is hereby authorized to act for the Borrower and the Agent and in such capacity shall manage, service, administer and make collections on the Pledged Receivables, and perform the other actions required by the Servicer under this Agreement for the benefit of the Agent and the Lender. The Servicer agrees that its servicing of the Pledged Receivables shall be carried out in accordance with customary and usual procedures of institutions which service comparable receivables and, to the extent more exacting, the degree of skill and attention that the Servicer exercises from time to time with respect to all comparable receivables that it services for itself or others (and in the case of SRI, in accordance with the Credit and Collection Policy) and, to the extent more exacting, the requirements of this Article VI. The Servicer's duties shall include, without limitation, collection and posting of all payments, responding to inquiries of Obligors on the Pledged Receivables, investigating delinquencies, sending payment statements or payment books to Obligors, reporting any required tax information to Obligors, policing the collateral, complying with the terms of the Lockbox Agreement, accounting for collections, furnishing monthly and annual statements to the Agent with respect to distributions and performing the other duties specified herein. (c) To the extent consistent with the standards, policies and procedures otherwise required hereby, the Servicer shall have full power and authority, acting alone, to do any and all things in connection with such managing, servicing, administration and collection that it may deem necessary or desirable. The Servicer is authorized to release Liens on Intervals in order to collect insurance and condemnation proceeds with respect thereto and to liquidate such Intervals in accordance with its customary standards, policies and procedures; provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing, the Servicer shall not, (i) except pursuant to an order from a court of competent jurisdiction, release an Obligor from payment of any unpaid amount under any Pledged Receivable or (ii) waive the right to collect the unpaid balance of any Pledged Receivable from such Obligor, except that, subject to Section 6.02(a), the Servicer may forego collection efforts if the amount which the Servicer, in its reasonable judgment, expects to realize in connection with such collection efforts is determined by the Servicer in its reasonable judgment to be less than the reasonably expected costs of pursuing such collection efforts, and if the Servicer would forego such collection efforts in accordance with its customary procedures. The Servicer is hereby authorized to commence, in its own name or in the name of the Borrower, the Agent or the Lender (provided that if the Servicer is acting in the name of the Borrower, the Agent or the Lender, the Servicer shall have obtained the Borrower's, the Agent's or the Lender's consent, as the case may be, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), a legal proceeding to enforce a Pledged Receivable or to commence or participate in any other legal proceeding (including, without limitation, a bankruptcy proceeding) relating to or involving a Pledged Receivable, an Obligor or an Interval. If the Servicer commences or participates in such a legal proceeding in its own name, the Borrower, the Agent or the Lender, as the case may be, 64 69 shall thereupon be deemed to have automatically assigned such Pledged Receivable to the Servicer solely for purposes of commencing or participating in any such proceeding as a party or claimant, and the Servicer is authorized and empowered by the Borrower, the Agent or the Lender, as the case may be, to execute and deliver in the Servicer's name any notices, demands, claims, complaints, responses, affidavits or other documents or instruments in connection with any such proceeding. The Borrower, the Agent or the Lender, as the case may be, shall furnish the Servicer with any powers of attorney and other documents which the Servicer may reasonably request in writing and which the Servicer deems necessary or appropriate and take any other steps which the Servicer may deem necessary or appropriate to enable the Servicer to carry out its servicing and administrative duties under this Agreement. (d) The Servicer shall not resign from the obligations and duties hereby imposed on it hereunder except upon determination that (i) the performance of its duties hereunder is no longer permissible under applicable law and (ii) there is no reasonable action which can be taken to make the performance of its duties hereunder permissible under applicable law. Any such determination permitting the resignation of the Servicer pursuant to clause (i) of the previous sentence hereof shall be evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel to such effect delivered to the Agent. Unless otherwise required by applicable law, no such resignation shall be effective until a successor Servicer designated by the Agent and the Lender shall have assumed the responsibilities and obligations of the Servicer hereunder. SECTION 6.02 Collection of Receivable Payments; Modification and Amendment of Receivables. Consistent with the standards, policies and procedures required by this Agreement, the Servicer shall make reasonable efforts to collect all payments called for under the terms and provisions of the Pledged Receivables as and when the same shall become due, and shall follow such collection procedures as it follows with respect to all comparable receivables that it services for itself or others (or that it formerly serviced for itself or others) and otherwise act with respect to the Pledged Receivables and the applicable Acceptable Title Policy in such manner as will, in the reasonable judgment of the Servicer, maximize the amount to be received by the Borrower and the Lender with respect thereto. (b) The Servicer may at any time agree to a modification or amendment of a Pledged Receivable in order to re-amortize the scheduled payments on the Pledged Receivable following a partial prepayment of principal but the Servicer may not grant payment extensions on a Pledged Receivable or permit any other modifications or amendments to a Pledged Receivable except as may be permitted by the Credit and Collection Policy; provided that a Pledged Receivable may only be Modified or Downgraded if it has not previously been Modified or Downgraded since its origination. (c) The Servicer shall remit all payments by or on behalf of the Obligors received directly by the Servicer to the Collection Account, without deposit into any intervening account as soon as practicable, but in no event later than two (2) Business Days after receipt thereof. 65 70 SECTION 6.03 Realization Upon Receivables. Subject to the provisions of Section 2.13 and consistent with the standards, policies and procedures required by this Agreement, the Servicer shall use its best efforts to foreclose upon (or otherwise comparably convert the ownership of) and liquidate any Interval or other Collateral securing a Pledged Receivable with respect to which the Servicer has determined that payments thereunder have ceased and are not likely to be resumed, as soon as is practicable after default on such Pledged Receivable but in no event later than thirty (30) days after such determination or an earlier date that would be customary under the circumstances involved and, in any case, in a manner as will, in the reasonable judgment of the Servicer, maximize the amount to be received by the Borrower and the Lender with respect thereto; provided that in the case of the foreclosure upon any Interval or other Collateral securing a Pledged Receivable by the Backup Servicer, such Backup Servicer shall take such action only upon the direction of the Agent. The Servicer is authorized to follow such customary practices and procedures as it shall deem necessary or advisable, consistent with the standard of care required by Section 6.01, which practices and procedures may include selling the related Interval or other Collateral at public or private sale, the submission of claims under an Acceptable Title Policy, if applicable, and other actions by the Servicer in order to realize upon such Pledged Receivable. In the event the Servicer elects to liquidate at a public or private sale any Interval or Intervals foreclosed upon or otherwise reacquired on behalf of the Borrower from Obligors of Defaulted Receivables, SRI shall not be precluded from bidding on such Intervals so long as SRI pays an amount equal to the net fair market value of such Intervals, as determined by the next following sentence of this Section 6.03; provided that SRI shall only be permitted to bid on such Intervals if, at such time, there shall not be a Borrowing Base Deficiency, an Early Amortization Event or a default under any Transaction Document. In this regard, the Servicer shall establish, from time to time, a net value for Intervals so liquidated based upon such market data as Servicer deems relevant; provided that in no event will the Liquidation Proceeds derived from an Interval acquired by SRI at public or private sale be less than fifteen percent (15%) of the original acquisition price paid for the Interval by the Obligor under the Defaulted Receivable associated with the Interval. The foregoing is subject to the provision that, in any case in which the related Unit shall have suffered damage, the Servicer shall not expend funds in connection with any repair or towards the foreclosure of such Interval unless it shall determine in its discretion that such repair and/or foreclosure shall increase the proceeds of liquidation of the related Pledged Receivable by an amount greater than the amount of such expenses. All Liquidation Proceeds shall be remitted directly by the Servicer to the Collection Account without deposit into any intervening account as soon as practicable, but in no event later than two (2) Business Days after receipt thereof. The Servicer shall pay on behalf of the Borrower any personal property taxes assessed on foreclosed Intervals, and the Servicer shall be entitled to reimbursement of any such tax as a Servicer Advance. SECTION 6.04 Insurance Regarding Intervals. Without limiting the effect of any other provision hereof, the Servicer shall monitor the status of the Acceptable Title Policies related to the Pledged Receivables in accordance with the Credit and Collection Policy and its customary servicing procedures. If the Servicer shall determine that SRI has failed to obtain or maintain Acceptable Title Policies covering all Mortgages securing all Pledged 66 71 Receivables related to Fee Simple Intervals, the Servicer shall take all necessary steps to ensure that SRI obtains such Acceptable Title Policy. (b) The Servicer may and, upon the request of the Agent, shall sue to enforce or collect upon the Acceptable Title Policies, in its own name, if possible, or as agent of the Borrower, the Agent and the Lender. If the Servicer elects to commence a legal proceeding to enforce an Acceptable Title Policy, the act of commencement shall be deemed to be an automatic assignment of the rights of the Borrower, the Agent and the Lender under such Acceptable Title Policy to the Servicer for purposes of collection only. If, however, in any enforcement suit or legal proceeding it is held that the Servicer may not enforce an Acceptable Title Policy on the grounds that it is not a real party in interest or a holder entitled to enforce the Acceptable Title Policy, the Borrower shall take such steps as the Servicer deems necessary to enforce such Acceptable Title Policy, including bringing suit in its name. SECTION 6.05 Maintenance of Security Interests in Intervals. If the Borrower has failed to, the Servicer shall take all steps necessary under all applicable law in order to cause a valid, subsisting and enforceable first priority security interest to exist in the Borrower's favor in the Applicable Underlying Collateral and all other Collateral (other than the Pledged Receivables) related to each Receivable (and the proceeds thereof) being Pledged hereunder on any Borrowing Date and immediately prior to the Pledge of such Receivable by the Borrower to the Agent (for the benefit of the Lender), there shall have existed in favor of the Borrower as secured party, a valid, subsisting and enforceable first priority perfected lien in the Applicable Underlying Collateral and all other such Collateral related to such Receivable (and the proceeds thereof), and such security interest is and shall be prior to all other liens upon and security interests in such Applicable Underlying Collateral and other such Collateral (and the proceeds thereof) that now exist or may hereafter arise or be created. (b) If the Borrower has failed to, the Servicer shall take all steps necessary under all applicable law in order to cause a valid, subsisting and enforceable first priority ownership interest to exist in the Borrower's favor in the Pledged Receivable (and the proceeds thereof) related to any Receivable being Pledged hereunder on any Borrowing Date and immediately prior to the Pledge of such Receivable by the Borrower to the Agent (for the benefit of the Lender), there shall have existed in favor of the Borrower as secured party, a valid, subsisting and enforceable first priority ownership interest in the Pledged Receivable (and the proceeds thereof) related to any such Receivable which is and free of all liens and security interests. (c) If the Borrower has failed to, the Servicer shall take all steps necessary under all applicable law in order to cause to exist in favor of the Agent, for the benefit of the Lender, a valid, subsisting and enforceable first priority perfected lien in (A) the Borrower's perfected security interest in the Applicable Underlying Collateral and all other Collateral (other than the Pledged Receivables) related to each Receivable (and the proceeds thereof) being Pledged hereunder on such Borrowing Date and (B) the Pledged Receivables and any other Pledged Assets related to each Receivable (and the proceeds thereof) being Pledged hereunder on 67 72 any Borrowing Date, and upon the Pledge of such Receivable by the Borrower to the Agent (for the benefit of the Lender), there shall exist in favor of the Agent (for the benefit of the Lender) as secured party, a valid, subsisting and enforceable first priority perfected security interest (A) the Borrower's first priority perfected security interest in the Applicable Underlying Collateral and all other Collateral (other than the Pledged Receivables) related to each Receivable (and the proceeds thereof) being Pledged hereunder on such Borrowing Date and (B) the Pledged Receivables and any other Pledged Assets related to each Receivable (and the proceeds thereof) being Pledged hereunder on such Borrowing Date, and such security interest is and shall be prior to all other liens upon and security interests therein that now exist or may hereafter arise or be created. SECTION 6.06 Pledged Receivable Receipts. The Servicer shall promptly make a deposit or cause the Borrower or any Affiliate thereof to make a deposit into the Collection Account in an amount equal to the Collections received or made by or on behalf of it, the Borrower or any Affiliate thereof, as the case may be, within two (2) Business Days of receiving any such Collections. SECTION 6.07 Unidentified Payments; Lender's Right of Presumption. The Borrower agrees and consents that the Servicer and/or the Agent may apply any payment it receives (or any such payment the Servicer deposits into the Collection Account) from an Obligor to any Loan secured by a Pledged Receivable if the Servicer and/or the Agent is unable in good faith to determine whether such payment from an Obligor relates to such Pledged Receivable; provided that each of the Borrower, the Agent and the Lender agrees that any payment it receives (or any such payment the Servicer deposits into the Collection Account) from an Obligor which is specifically identifiable as a payment in respect of any dues, fees or other charges payable by the related Obligor in connection with the ownership and/or use of the related Interval shall be paid to SRI. SECTION 6.08 No Rights of Withdrawal. Until the Collection Date, the Borrower shall have no rights of direction or withdrawal with respect to amounts held in the Collection Account, the Lockbox Account or the Lockbox, except as provided for herein. SECTION 6.09 Permitted Investments. The Borrower shall, pursuant to written instruction, direct the Agent's Bank (and if the Borrower fails to do so, the Agent may, pursuant to written instruction, direct the Agent's Bank) to invest, or cause the investment of, funds on deposit in the Collection Account, in Permitted Investments, from the date of this Agreement until the Collection Date. Absent any such written instruction, the Agent's Bank shall invest, or cause the investment of, such funds in Permitted Investments described in clause (e) of the definition thereof. A Permitted Investment acquired with funds deposited in the Collection Account shall mature not later than the Business Day immediately preceding the last day of the next ending Fixed Period, and shall not be sold or disposed of prior to its maturity. All such Permitted Investments shall be registered in the name of the Agent (in its capacity as such) or its nominee for the benefit of the Lender. All income and gain realized from any such investment as well as any interest earned on deposits in the Collection Account shall be 68 73 distributed in accordance with the provisions of Article II hereof. The Servicer shall deposit in the Collection Account (with respect to investments made hereunder of funds held therein), an amount equal to the amount of any actual loss incurred in respect of any such investment immediately upon realization of such loss. Neither the Agent's Bank nor the Agent shall be liable for the amount of any loss incurred in respect of any investment, or lack of investment, of funds held in the Collection Account. SECTION 6.10 Servicing Compensation. As compensation for its activities hereunder, the Servicer shall be entitled to be paid the Servicing Fee from the Collection Account as provided in Section 2.05(c). Subject to Section 6.14, the Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its servicing activities hereunder and shall not be entitled to reimbursement therefor, except with respect to reasonable expenses of the Servicer incurred in connection with the foreclosure and disposition of any Interval (which the Servicer may retain from the proceeds of the disposition of such Interval) and any Servicer Advances made by the Servicer pursuant hereto. The Servicing Fee may not be transferred in whole or in part except in connection with the transfer of all the Servicer's responsibilities and obligations under this Agreement. SECTION 6.11 Reports to the Agent; Account Statements; Servicing Information. The Borrower will deliver to the Agent (i) on the Early Amortization Commencement Date, a report identifying the Pledged Receivables (and any information with respect thereto requested by the Agent) on the day immediately preceding the Early Amortization Commencement Date and (ii) upon the Agent's reasonable request and upon reasonable notice, on any other Business Day, a report identifying the Pledged Receivables (and any information with respect thereto reasonably requested by the Agent) on such day. (b) On the tenth day of each calendar month or, if such day is not a Business Day, the immediately preceding Business Day, the Servicer shall prepare and deliver or have delivered to the Agent for the Lender, (i) a Monthly Remittance Report and any other information reasonably requested by the Agent relating to all Pledged Receivables (including if requested, a Computer Tape or Listing), all information in the Monthly Remittance Report (including, without limitation, the calculation of Weighted Average APR, the Default Rate, the Delinquency Rate and the Excess Spread Rate) and all other such information to be accurate as of the last day of the immediately preceding Remittance Period and (ii) in an electronic format mutually acceptable to the Servicer and the Agent, all information reasonably requested by the Agent relating to all Pledged Receivables. If any Monthly Remittance Report indicates the existence of a Borrowing Base Deficiency, the Borrower shall on the date of delivery of such Monthly Remittance Report prepay to the Agent, for the account of the Lender, a portion of the Loans as is necessary to cure such Borrowing Base Deficiency (or otherwise cure such Borrowing Base Deficiency). (c) By no later than 1:00 P.M. (New York City time) on the Business Day immediately preceding a Borrowing, the Servicer shall also prepare and deliver to the Agent for the Lender a Borrowing Base Certificate containing information accurate as of the date of 69 74 delivery of such Borrowing Base Certificate. If any Borrowing Base Certificate indicates the existence of a Borrowing Base Deficiency, the Borrower shall on the date of delivery of such Borrowing Base Certificate prepay to the Agent, for the account of the Lender, a portion of the Loans as is necessary to cure such Borrowing Base Deficiency (or otherwise cure such Borrowing Base Deficiency). (d) On the Business Day immediately preceding the last day of each Fixed Period, the Servicer shall prepare and deliver or have delivered to the Agent for the Lender, a Commercial Paper Remittance Report containing information accurate as of the date of delivery of such Commercial Paper Remittance Report.

(f) The Borrower shall deliver to the Agent all reports it receives pursuant to the Receivables Purchase Agreement within one (1) Business Day of the receipt thereof. SECTION 6.12 Statements as to Compliance; Financial Statements. The Servicer shall deliver to the Agent, the Borrower and the Lender on or before January 15 of each year, beginning with January 15, 2001, an Officers Certificate stating, as to each signatory thereof, that (x) a review of the activities of the Servicer during the preceding calendar year (or the portion thereof commencing on the date of this Agreement, in the case of the calendar year ending December 31, 2000) and of its performance under this Agreement has been made under such officer's supervision, and (y) to the best of such officers' knowledge, based on such review, the Servicer has fulfilled all of its obligations under this Agreement throughout such calendar year (or portion thereof, as the case may be) or, if there has been a default in the fulfillment of any such obligation, specifying each such default known to such officer and the nature and status thereof and the action being taken to cure such default. (b) The Servicer shall, at its expense, cause Deloitte & Touche or another firm of independent certified public accountants reasonably acceptable to the Agent (the "Independent Accountants"), who may also render other services to the Servicer or to the Borrower to deliver to the Borrower and the Agent, on or before March 31 of each year, beginning on March 31, 2001, with respect to the twelve (12) months ended the immediately preceding December 31, a statement (the "Accountants' Report") addressed to the Board of Directors of the Servicer and to the Agent, to the effect that such firm has performed procedures to be agreed upon by the Servicer and the Agent, solely to assist with evaluating compliance with the Borrowing Base Certificates, Monthly Remittance Reports and Commercial Paper Remittance Reports prepared by the Servicer during the twelve (12) months ended the immediately preceding December 31 70 75 and that such agreed upon procedures were performed in accordance with standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. The Accountants' Report shall further state that (i) it performed procedures in accordance with such agreed upon procedures; (ii) except as disclosed in the Accountant's Report, no exceptions or errors in the Borrowing Base Certificates, Monthly Remittance Reports and Commercial Paper Remittance Reports examined were found. The Accountants' Report shall also indicate that the firm is independent of the Borrower and the Servicer within the meaning of the Code of Professional Ethics of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

SECTION 6.13 Access to Certain Documentation; Obligors. The Lender or the Agent (and their respective agents or professional advisors) shall at the expense of the Borrower, have the right under this Agreement, once during each calendar year, upon reasonable prior notice to the Servicer, to examine and audit, during business hours or at such other times as might be reasonable under applicable circumstances, any and all of the books, records, or other information of the Servicer, or held by another for the Servicer or on its behalf, concerning this Agreement. The Lender and the Agent (and their respective agents and professional advisors) shall treat as confidential any information obtained during such examination which is not already publicly known or available; provided, however, the Lender or the Agent may disclose such information if required to do so by law or by any regulatory authority. Without limitation of the foregoing, the Servicer and the Borrower acknowledge and agree that at least four (4) times during each calendar year the Agent (and its respective agents or 72 77 professional advisors) shall, at the Agent's own expense, upon reasonable prior notice to the Servicer and the Borrower, examine and audit, during business hours or at such other times as might be reasonable under applicable circumstances, any and all of the books, records or other information of the Servicer and/or the Borrower or held by another for the Servicer and/or the Borrower or on its behalf concerning this Agreement and compliance therewith. (b) The Lender or the Agent (and their respective agents or professional advisors) shall, at their own expense, have the right under this Agreement to, not more frequently than once each calendar quarter, contact the Obligors with respect to any Receivables which are Pledged hereunder in order to procure such information related to such Obligors and the related Receivables as the Lender or the Agent deems reasonable under the circumstances. The Servicer and the Borrower hereby agree to cooperate with the Lender and the Agent (and their respective agents or professional advisors) in connection with any attempt thereby to contact any such Obligor and shall provide to the Lender and the Agent such information as is needed in order to facilitate such contact. The Lender and the Agent (and their respective agents and professional advisors) shall treat as confidential any information obtained during any such contact with any such Obligor which is not already publicly known or available; provided, however, the Lender or the Agent (and their respective agents or professional advisors) may disclose such information if required to do so by law or by any regulatory authority. SECTION 6.14 Backup Servicer. If a Servicer Default shall occur and is continuing, then the Agent may, by notice to the Servicer, the Borrower and the Backup Servicer, terminate all of the rights and obligations of the Servicer under this Agreement. Upon the delivery to the Servicer and the Backup Servicer of such notice, all authority and power of the Servicer under this Agreement, whether with respect to the Pledged Assets or otherwise, shall pass to and be vested in the Backup Servicer pursuant to and under this Section, and, without limitation, the Backup Servicer is hereby authorized and empowered to execute and deliver, on behalf of the Servicer, as attorney-in-fact or otherwise, any and all documents and other instruments, and to do or accomplish all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect the purposes of such notice of termination or to perform the duties of the Servicer under this Agreement. The Servicer agrees to cooperate with the Agent and the Backup Servicer in effecting the termination of the Servicer's responsibilities and rights hereunder, including, without limitation, notification to the Obligors of the assignment of the servicing function, providing the Backup Servicer with all records, in electronic or other form, reasonably requested by it to enable the Backup Servicer to assume the servicing functions hereunder and the transfer to the Backup Servicer for administration by it all cash amounts which at the time should be or should have been deposited by the Servicer in the Collection Account or thereafter be received by the Servicer with respect to the Pledged Receivables. Neither the Agent nor the Backup Servicer shall be deemed to have breached any obligation hereunder as a result of a failure to make or delay in making any distribution as and when required hereunder caused by the failure of the Servicer to remit any amounts received by it or to deliver any documents held by it with respect to the Pledged Assets. 73 78 The Backup Servicer's Fees and other expenses of the Backup Servicer reimbursable hereunder for any successor Servicer shall be paid out of Collections as set forth in Section 2.05(c) on and after the date, if any, that the Backup Servicer assumes the responsibilities of the Servicer pursuant to this Section. The Backup Servicer shall be required to pay all expenses incurred by it in connection with its servicing activities hereunder and shall not be entitled to reimbursement therefor, except with respect to reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of the Backup Servicer incurred in connection with (i) the foreclosure and disposition of any Interval in excess of the costs associated with the taking back of the deed relating to such Interval in lieu of foreclosure and (ii) enforcing or collecting upon Acceptable Title Policies. Any obligations of SRI hereunder other than in its capacity as Servicer shall continue in effect notwithstanding SRI's termination as Servicer. On and after the time the Servicer receives a notice of termination pursuant to this Section 6.14, the Backup Servicer shall be (and the Backup Servicer hereby agrees to be) the successor in all respects to the Servicer in its capacity as Servicer under this Agreement and the transactions set forth or provided for herein and shall have all the rights and powers and be subject thereafter to all the responsibilities, duties and liabilities relating thereto placed on the Servicer by the terms and provisions hereof; provided, however, that any failure to perform such duties or responsibilities caused by the Servicer's failure to provide information required by this Section 6.14 shall not be considered a default by the Backup Servicer hereunder. The Backup Servicer shall have (i) no liability with respect to any obligation which was required to be performed by the terminated Servicer prior to the date that the Backup Servicer becomes the successor to the Servicer or any claim of a third party based on any alleged action or inaction of the terminated Servicer, (ii) no obligation to perform any repurchase or advancing obligations, if any, of the Servicer, (iii) no obligation to pay any taxes required to be paid by the Servicer (provided that the Backup Servicer shall pay any income taxes for which it is liable), (iv) no obligation to pay any of the fees and expenses of any other party to the transactions contemplated hereby, (v) no liability or obligation with respect to any Servicer indemnification obligations of any prior Servicer, including the original Servicer and (vi) no obligation, when the Backup Servicer is Wells Fargo, to comply with the collection procedures set forth in the Credit and Collection Policy, but rather shall service the Pledged Receivables in accordance with the provisions of Section 6.01(b). The indemnification obligations of the Backup Servicer, upon becoming a successor Servicer, are expressly limited to those arising on account of its failure to act in good faith and with reasonable care under the circumstances. In addition, the Backup Servicer shall have no liability relating to the representations and warranties of the Servicer contained in Article IV. Notwithstanding the above, the Agent may, if the Backup Servicer shall be unwilling to so act, or shall, if the Backup Servicer is unable to so act, or if the Lender so requests in writing to the Agent, appoint itself, or appoint any established servicing institution acceptable to the Agent, as the successor to the Servicer hereunder in the assumption of all or any part of the responsibilities, duties or liabilities of the Servicer hereunder. Pending appointment of a successor to the Servicer hereunder, and after the Agent notifies the Servicer to discontinue performing servicing functions under this Agreement, the Backup Servicer (or the Agent if there is no Backup Servicer) shall act in such capacity as hereinabove provided. In connection with 74 79 such appointment and assumption, the Agent may make such arrangements for the compensation of such successor out of payments on Pledged Receivables as it and such successor shall agree; provided, however, that, except as provided herein, no such compensation shall be in excess of that permitted the Servicer hereunder, unless otherwise agreed to by the Lender. The Borrower, the Agent and such successor shall take such action, consistent with this Agreement, as shall be necessary to effectuate any such succession. The Backup Servicer may perform any of its duties hereunder either directly or through an agent reasonably acceptable to the Agent provided that the Backup Servicer shall be responsible to the other parties to this Agreement for the performance of any such agent and such appointment shall in no way affect the primary performance obligation of the Backup Servicer hereunder to the other parties to this Agreement. Prior to each Remittance Date, the Backup Servicer shall compare the information on the computer tape or diskette (or other means of electronic transmission acceptable to the Backup Servicer) most recently delivered to the Backup Servicer by the Servicer pursuant to Section 6.11(e) to the Monthly Remittance Report most recently delivered to the Backup Servicer by the Servicer pursuant to Section 6.11(e) and shall: (a) confirm that such Monthly Remittance Report is complete on its face; (b) confirm the Remittance Date distributions to be made on the next Remittance Date pursuant to Section 2.05(c) hereof. (c) verify the mathematical accuracy of the following fields on such Monthly Remittance Report: (i) "Net Eligible Receivables Balance," (ii) "Delinquency Rate," (iii) "Default Rate," (iv) "Excess Spread Rate" and (v) "Weighted Average APR;" and (d) deliver to the Agent a certification letter with respect to the above substantially in the form of Exhibit E hereto on or before such Remittance Date. In the event of any discrepancy between the information set forth in subparagraphs (b) or (c) above as calculated by the Servicer from that determined or calculated by the Backup Servicer, the Backup Servicer shall promptly report such discrepancy to the Servicer and the Agent. In the event of a discrepancy as described in the preceding sentence, the Servicer and the Backup Servicer shall attempt to reconcile such discrepancies prior to the related Remittance Date, but in the absence of a reconciliation, distributions on the related Remittance Date shall be made consistent with the information calculated by the Servicer, the Servicer and the Backup Servicer shall attempt to reconcile such discrepancies prior to the next Remittance Date, and the Servicer shall promptly report to the Agent regarding the progress, if any, which shall have been made in reconciling such discrepancies. If the Backup Servicer and the Servicer are unable to reconcile such discrepancies with respect to such Monthly Remittance Report by the next Remittance Date that falls in April, July, October or January, the Servicer shall cause independent accountants acceptable to the Agent, at the Servicer's expense, to examine such 75 80 Monthly Remittance Report and attempt to reconcile such discrepancies at the earliest possible date (and the Servicer shall promptly provide the Agent with a report regarding such events). The effect, if any, of such reconciliation shall be reflected in the Monthly Remittance Report for the next succeeding Remittance Date. Other than as set forth in this Section 6.14, the Backup Servicer shall have no obligation to supervise, verify, monitor or administer the performance of the Servicer. The Backup Servicer may not resign except upon sixty (60) day's prior written notice to the Agent, the Servicer and the Borrower. In addition, the Backup Servicer may be removed by the Agent or the Lender with or without cause at any time. In the event of any such resignation or removal, the Backup Servicer may be replaced by a new Backup Servicer selected by the Agent upon notice to the Servicer and the Borrower, such new Backup Servicer to be compensated in accordance with the second to last sentence of the fourth paragraph of this Section 6.14. SECTION 6.15 Additional Remedies of Agent Upon Event of Default. During the continuance of any Event of Default, the Agent, in addition to the rights specified in Section 7.01, shall have the right, in its own name and as agent for the Lender, to take all actions now or hereafter existing at law, in equity or by statute to enforce its rights and remedies and to protect the interests, and enforce the rights and remedies, of the Lender (including the institution and prosecution of all judicial, administrative and other proceedings and the filings of proofs of claim and debt in connection therewith). Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, no remedy provided for by this Agreement shall be exclusive of any other remedy, and each and every remedy shall be cumulative and in addition to any other remedy, and no delay or omission to exercise any right or remedy shall impair any such right or remedy or shall be deemed to be a waiver of any Event of Default. SECTION 6.16 Waiver of Defaults. Upon consent of the Lender, the Agent may waive any default by the Servicer in the performance of its obligations hereunder and its consequences. Upon any such waiver of a past default, such default shall cease to exist, and any Event of Default arising therefrom shall be deemed to have been remedied for every purpose of this Agreement. No such waiver shall be effective unless it shall be in writing and signed by the Agent on the Lender's behalf and no such waiver shall extend to any subsequent or other default or impair any right consequent thereon except to the extent expressly so waived. SECTION 6.17 Maintenance of Certain Insurance. During the term of its service as Servicer, the Servicer shall maintain in force an "errors and omissions" and an employee fidelity insurance policy, in each case, in an amount not less than $2,000,000 in a form that would cover any loss of Collections by the Servicer hereunder caused by employee dishonesty, and with an insurance company reasonably acceptable to the Lender and the Agent. The Servicer shall prepare and present, on behalf of itself, the Agent and the Lender, claims under any such policy in a timely fashion in accordance with the terms of such policy, and upon 76 81 the filing of any claim on any policy described in this Section, the Servicer shall promptly notify the Agent of such claim. SECTION 6.18 Segregation of Collections. The Servicer shall not commingle funds constituting Collections with any other funds of the Servicer. SECTION 6.19 UCC Matters; Protection and Perfection of Pledged Assets. The Borrower will not make any change to its corporate name or use any tradenames, fictitious names, assumed names, "doing business as" names or other names (other than those listed on Schedule III hereto, as such schedule may be revised from time to time to reflect name changes and name usage permitted under the terms of this Section 6.19 after compliance with all terms and conditions of this Section 6.19 related thereto) unless prior to the effective date of any such name change or use, the Borrower notifies the Agent of such change in writing and delivers to the Agent such executed financing statements as the Agent may reasonably request to reflect such name change or use, together with such other documents and instruments as the Agent may reasonably request in connection therewith. The Borrower will not change the location of its chief executive office or the location of its records regarding the Pledged Receivables unless prior to the effective date of any such change of location, the Borrower notifies the Agent of such change of location in writing and delivers to the Agent such executed financing statements as the Agent may reasonably request to reflect such change of location, together with such Opinions of Counsel, documents and instruments as the Agent may reasonably request in connection therewith. The Borrower agrees that from time to time, at its expense, it will promptly execute and deliver all further instruments and documents, and take all further action that the Agent may reasonably request in order to perfect, protect or more fully evidence the Lender's interest in the Pledged Assets acquired hereunder, or to enable the Lender or the Agent to exercise or enforce any of their respective rights hereunder. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Borrower will upon the request of the Agent: (i) execute and file such financing or continuation statements, or amendments thereto or assignments thereof, and such other instruments or notices, as may be necessary or appropriate or as the Agent may request (provided that the Borrower shall not be required to execute and file such any financing statements against individual Obligors), and (ii) mark its master data processing records evidencing such Pledged Receivables with a legend acceptable to the Agent, evidencing that the Lender has acquired an interest therein as provided in this Agreement. The Borrower hereby authorizes the Agent to file one or more financing or continuation statements, and amendments thereto and assignments thereof, relative to all or any of the Pledged Receivables and the Related Security related thereto and the proceeds of the foregoing now existing or hereafter arising without the signature of the Borrower where permitted by law. Subject to applicable law, a carbon, photographic or other reproduction of this Agreement or any financing statement covering the Pledged Receivables, or any part thereof shall be sufficient as a financing statement. The Borrower shall, upon the request of the Agent at any time after the occurrence of an Event of Default and at the Borrower's expense, notify the Obligors obligated to pay any Pledged Receivables, or any of them, of the security interest of the Lender in the Pledged Assets. If the Borrower fails to perform any of its agreements or obligations under this Section 6.19, the Agent may (but shall not be required to) itself perform, or cause performance of, such agreement or obligation, and the expenses of the Agent incurred in 77 82 connection therewith shall be payable by the Borrower upon the Agent's demand therefor. For purposes of enabling the Agent to exercise its rights described in the preceding sentence and elsewhere in this Article VI, the Borrower and the Lender hereby authorize each of the Agent and its successors and assigns to take any and all steps in the Borrower's name and on behalf of the Borrower and the Lender necessary or desirable, in the determination of the Agent, to collect all amounts due under any and all Pledged Receivables, including, without limitation, endorsing the Borrower's name on checks and other instruments representing Collections and enforcing such Pledged Receivables and, if any, the related guarantees. SECTION 6.20 Servicer Advances. The Servicer may, in its sole discretion, make an advance in respect of any payment due on a Pledged Receivable to the extent such payment has not been received by the Servicer as of its due date and the Servicer reasonably expects such payment will be ultimately recoverable (a "Servicer Advance"). The Servicer shall deposit into the Collection Account in immediately available funds the aggregate of all Servicer Advances to be made during a Remittance Period on or prior to the Business Day immediately preceding the related Remittance Date. The Servicer shall be entitled to reimbursement for such Servicer Advances from monies in the Collection Account as provided in Section 2.05(c) hereof. SECTION 6.21 Repurchase of Receivables Upon Breach of Covenant or Representation and Warranty by SRI. The Borrower or the Servicer, as the case may be, shall inform the other parties to this Agreement promptly, in writing, upon the discovery of any breach of SRI's representations, warranties and/or covenants pursuant to Section 6.05 or Article V; provided, however, that the failure to provide any such notice shall not diminish, in any manner whatsoever, any obligation of SRI hereunder to repurchase any Pledged Receivable. Unless such breach shall have been cured by the last day of the first full calendar month following the discovery by or notice to SRI of such breach, SRI shall have an obligation, and the Borrower shall and the Agent may, enforce such obligation of SRI, to repurchase any Pledged Receivable materially and adversely affected by such breach. The Borrower shall notify the Agent promptly, in writing, of any failure by SRI to so repurchase any such Pledged Receivable. In consideration of the repurchase of such Pledged Receivable, SRI shall remit funds in an amount equal to the Release Price for such Pledged Receivable to the Collection Account on the date of such repurchase. (b) In addition to the foregoing and notwithstanding whether any Pledged Receivable shall have been repurchased by SRI pursuant to Section 6.21(a), SRI hereby indemnifies the Borrower, the Agent and the Lender against all costs, expenses, losses, damages, claims and liabilities, including reasonable fees and expenses of counsel, which may be asserted against or incurred by any of them in connection with any of the events or facts giving rise to a breach of SRI's representations, warranties, agreements and/or covenants set forth in Article V or Article VI. SECTION 6.22 Compliance with Applicable Law. The Servicer and the Borrower shall at all times comply in all material respects with all requirements of applicable federal, state and local laws, and regulations thereunder (including, without limitation but only if 78 83 and to the extent applicable, usury laws, the Federal Truth-in-Lending Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Fair Credit Billing Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Federal Trade Commission Act, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, the Federal Reserve Board's Regulations " B" and "Z", the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act of 1940 and state adaptations of the National Consumer Act and of the Uniform Consumer Credit Code, the Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act and all other consumer credit laws and equal credit opportunity and disclosure laws and any regulations promulgated thereunder) in the conduct of its business. SECTION 6.23 UCC Releases. The Borrower shall use diligent efforts to provide to Agent within 90 days of the date hereof, evidence of the release by each Previous Lender of any right, title and interest that such Previous Lender may have in any Pledged Receivables and Applicable Underlying Collateral Pledged hereunder from time to time. ARTICLE VII. EVENTS OF DEFAULT SECTION 7.01 Events of Default.

provided, however, that if any breach described above is cured by the repurchase of Receivables pursuant to Article VI of the Receivables Purchase Agreement or by a repayment pursuant to Section 2.12 or a repurchase pursuant to Section 6.21 hereof, such breach shall cease to constitute an Event of Default; or (d)(i) the Borrower or SRI shall fail to perform or observe any term, covenant or agreement hereunder or under any other Transaction Document (including the failure to make any payment or deposit to be made by it hereunder or under the Fee Letter) when due and such failure remains unremedied for two (2) Business Days after written notice thereof is provided by the Agent; or 79 84 (e) the Borrower or SRI shall fail to pay any principal of or premium or interest on any Debt (in the case of SRI, in an amount in excess of $250,000) when the same becomes due and payable (whether by scheduled maturity, required prepayment, acceleration, demand or otherwise) and such failure shall continue after the applicable grace period, if any, specified in the agreement or instrument relating to such Debt; or any other default under any agreement or instrument relating to any Debt or any other event, shall occur and shall continue after the applicable grace period, if any, specified in such agreement or instrument if the effect of such default or event is to accelerate, or to permit the acceleration of, the maturity of such Debt; or any such Debt shall be declared to be due and payable or required to be prepaid (other than by a regularly scheduled required prepayment) prior to the stated maturity thereof; or (f) the occurrence of any default under any of the terms of, or otherwise in respect of, any agreement, security, note or certificate related to any Take-Out Securitization or other outstanding term securitization serviced by the Servicer and the passage of any applicable grace period without the cure thereof;

provided, however, that if an event described in the foregoing clause (i) or (ii) is cured by the repurchase of Receivables pursuant to Article VI of the Receivables Purchase Agreement or by a repayment pursuant to Section 2.12 or a repurchase pursuant to Section 6.21 hereof, such event shall cease to constitute an Event of Default; or (h) the Borrower or SRI shall have suffered any material adverse change to its financial condition or operations which would adversely affect the collectibility of the Pledged Receivables or the Borrower's or SRI's ability to conduct its business; or (i) SRI or the Borrower can no longer conduct business for any reason; or (j) the Receivables Purchase Agreement shall cease to be in full force and effect; or (k) the occurrence of a Servicer Default (if the Servicer is SRI or an Affiliate thereof); or (l) SRI has at any time a Tangible Net Worth in an amount which shall be less than an amount equal to (A) $140,000,000 plus (B) seventy-five percent (75%) of the aggregate amount of proceeds received by SRI after the date of this Agreement in connection with (1) each issuance by SRI of any class or classes of capital stock after the date of this Agreement and (2) each incurrence of Debt after the date of this Agreement, other than Debt which shall be the most senior Debt of SRI plus (C) fifty percent (50%) of the aggregate amount of net income (calculated in accordance with GAAP) of SRI after the date of this Agreement; or 80 85 (m) any failure shall have occurred on the part of the Borrower or SRI duly to observe or perform in any material respect any covenant or agreement related to any Purchased Rate Cap or any covenant or agreement under the Sinking Fund Agreement; then the Agent may, by notice to the Borrower, declare the Early Amortization Commencement Date to have occurred; provided, that, in the case of any event described in 7.01(b) above, the Early Amortization Commencement Date shall be deemed to have occurred automatically upon the occurrence of such event. Upon any such declaration or automatic occurrence, (i) the Borrower shall cease purchasing Receivables from SRI under the Receivables Purchase Agreement, (ii) the Lender shall cease issuing commercial paper notes to fund or maintain the Loans hereunder, (iii) the Liquidity/Credit Enhancement Facility shall be drawn upon by the Lender from time to time thereafter in order to retire the maturing commercial paper notes issued to fund or maintain the Loans hereunder (and the Loans hereunder maintained by the amounts so drawn under the Liquidity/Credit Enhancement Facility shall bear interest at the Default Funding Rate), (iv) at the option of the Lender in its sole discretion, the Lender may declare the Loans made to the Borrower hereunder and all Yield and all Fees accrued on such Loans and any other Obligations to be immediately due and payable (and the Borrower shall pay such Loans and all such amounts and Obligations immediately); and (v) at the option of the Lender in its sole discretion, the Agent, on behalf of the Lender, may direct the Obligors to make all payments under the Pledged Receivables directly to the Backup Servicer, the Agent, the Lender or any lockbox or account established by any of such parties. In addition, upon any such declaration or upon any such automatic occurrence, the Agent and the Lender shall have, in addition to all other rights and remedies under this Agreement or otherwise, all other rights and remedies provided under the UCC of the applicable jurisdiction and other applicable laws, which rights shall be cumulative. If any Event of Default shall have occurred, the Non-CP Rate and the CP Rate shall be increased to the Default Funding Rate, effective as of the date of the occurrence of such Event of Default and shall remain at the Default Funding Rate. SECTION 7.02 Additional Remedies of Agent and Lender. If, upon the Lender's declaration that the Loans made to the Borrower hereunder are immediately due and payable pursuant to Section 7.01 or on the Facility Maturity Date, the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Loans, all accrued Fees and Yield and any other Obligations are not immediately paid in full, then the Agent, in addition to all other rights specified hereunder, shall have the right, in its own name and as agent for the Lender, to immediately sell in a commercially reasonable manner and otherwise in accordance with applicable law, in a recognized market (if one exists) at such price or prices as the Agent may reasonably deem satisfactory, any or all Pledged Assets and apply the proceeds thereof to the Obligations. (b) The parties recognize that it may not be possible to sell all of the Pledged Assets on a particular Business Day, or in a transaction with the same purchaser, or in the same manner because the market for such Pledged Assets may not be liquid. Accordingly, the Agent may elect, in its sole discretion, the time and manner of liquidating any Pledged Assets and nothing contained herein shall obligate the Agent to liquidate any Pledged Assets on the date the 81 86 Lender declares the Loans made to the Borrower hereunder to be immediately due and payable pursuant to Section 7.01 or to liquidate all Pledged Assets in the same manner or on the same Business Day. (c) Any amounts received from any sale or liquidation of the Pledged Assets pursuant to this Section 7.02 in excess of the Obligations will be returned to the Borrower, its successors or assigns, or to whosoever may be lawfully entitled to receive the same or as a court of competent jurisdiction may otherwise direct. (d) The Agent and the Lenders shall have, in addition to all the rights and remedies provided herein and provided by applicable federal, state, foreign, and local laws (including, without limitation, the rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code of any applicable state, to the extent that the Uniform Commercial Code is applicable, and the right to offset any mutual debt and claim), all rights and remedies available to the lenders in law, in equity, or under any other agreement between the Lender and the Borrower. (e) Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, no remedy provided for by this Agreement shall be exclusive of any other remedy, and each and every remedy shall be cumulative and in addition to any other remedy, and no delay or omission to exercise any right or remedy shall impair any such right or remedy or shall be deemed to be a waiver of any Early Amortization Event or Event of Default. (f) If a Development is no longer an Eligible Development, no additional Receivables related to such Development will be financed under this Agreement until such time as the circumstance which caused such Development to cease to be an Eligible Development no longer exists. ARTICLE VIII. INDEMNIFICATION SECTION 8.01 Indemnities by the Borrower. Without limiting any other rights which the Agent, the Lender, the Backup Servicer or any of their respective Affiliates may have hereunder or under applicable law, the Borrower hereby agrees to indemnify the Agent, the Lender, the Backup Servicer and each of their respective Affiliates (each an "Indemnified Party" for purposes of this Article VIII) from and against any and all damages, losses, claims, liabilities and related costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements (all of the foregoing being collectively referred to as "Indemnified Amounts") awarded against or incurred by any of them arising out of or as a result of this Agreement or in respect of any Pledged Assets, excluding, however, Indemnified Amounts to the extent resulting from gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the Agent, the Lender, the Backup Servicer or such Affiliate.
