What is a Cash Management Agreement?

A cash management agreement is a contract between a bank and its customer used to manage the customer's funds. This agreement can include providing liquidity, asset-liability matching, or other services.

A cash management agreement often includes maintaining certain balances with the bank and meeting financial ratios. These agreements are typically designed to help manage business operations rather than generate income from interest rates or fees. Cash management agreements may also cover agreed-upon collateral obligations and the rights and duties of both parties involved.

Section 2.2. Deposits into Accounts. The Issuers and the Manager represent, warrant and covenant that:

 

  (a) To the extent not previously notified, the Issuers shall notify and advise each Tenant under each Lease to send directly to the deposit box or Lock Box Account all payments of Receipts pursuant to an instruction letter in the form of Exhibit A (each a “Tenant Direction Letter”).

  (c) Prior to the end of each Collection Period, the Issuers (or the Manager on their behalf) shall instruct the Indenture Trustee to deposit the Advance Rents Reserve Deposits received in the Central Account during each such Collection Period into the Advance Rents Reserve Sub-Account.

Section 2.5. Permitted Investments. Sums on deposit in the Securities Accounts shall be invested in Permitted Investments. Except during the existence and continuance of any Event of Default, the Manager shall have the right to direct the Indenture Trustee to invest sums on deposit in the Securities Accounts in Permitted Investments; provided, however, in no event shall the Manager direct the Indenture Trustee to make a Permitted Investment if the maturity date of that Permitted Investment is later than the date on which the invested sums are required for payment of an obligation for which the Account was created. After an Event of Default and during the continuance thereof, the Indenture Trustee may invest sums on deposit in the Securities Accounts in Permitted Investments. The Issuers hereby irrevocably authorize the Indenture Trustee to apply any interest or income earned from Permitted Investments to the Central Account for payment in accordance with the priorities set forth in Section 5.01(a) of the Indenture.

Under no circumstances shall the Indenture Trustee be required to utilize the Cash Trap Reserve to cure any deficiencies in any Sub-Accounts. To the extent sufficient funds are included within the applicable Sub-Accounts (or, if not sufficient, the Issuers deposit the amount of any such deficiency pursuant to this Section 3.3(b)) the Issuers shall be deemed to have satisfied the obligations of the Issuers to make the related deposit under the Indenture.

 

  (c) The Issuers shall use all disbursements made to them under Section 5.01 (a) clauses fifth and seventh of the Indenture solely to pay Operating Expenses (other than (A) Impositions and Insurance Premiums and (B) Management Fees). Three (3) Business Days prior to the applicable Payment Date, the Manager shall issue a request to the Servicer that a disbursements be made pursuant to Section 5.01(a) clause seventh of the Indenture. The Servicer shall, in accordance with the Servicing Standard, approve such request and indicate its approval, if any, by including the amount to be disbursed pursuant to Section 5.01(a) clause seventh of the Indenture in the Servicer Report.

 

  (d) Upon the expiration of a Cash Trap Condition in accordance with Section 4.05 of the Indenture, any funds remaining in the Cash Trap Reserve Sub-Account shall be returned to the Issuers provided no Event of Default then exists.

If the actual Management Fee payable on any Payment Date is not equal to the amount allocated for the payment thereof pursuant to Section 5.01(a), clauses sixth and fifteenth of the Indenture, then the Management Fee for the Payment Date immediately following final determination of the applicable Management Fee shall be adjusted by an amount equal to the deficiency or surplus, as applicable.

11


 

which such deposits are required, taking into consideration amounts which, but for such late payment of Rent, would have previously been distributed from the Advance Rents Reserve Sub-Account had such Rents not been paid late.

Section 4.2. Sole Dominion and Control. The Issuers and the Manager acknowledge and agree that the Securities Accounts are subject to the sole dominion, control and discretion of the Indenture Trustee, its authorized agents or designees subject to the terms hereof.

Section 6.1. Reasonable Care. Beyond the exercise of reasonable care in the custody thereof or as otherwise expressly provided herein, the Indenture Trustee shall not have any duty as to any Collateral in its possession or control as agent therefor or bailee thereof or any income thereon or the preservation of rights against any Person or otherwise with respect thereto. The Indenture Trustee shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody and preservation of the Collateral in its possession if the Collateral is accorded treatment substantially equal to that which the Indenture Trustee accords its own property, it being understood that the Indenture Trustee shall not be liable or responsible for any loss or damage to any of the Collateral, or for any diminution in value thereof, by reason of the act or omission the Indenture Trustee, its Affiliates, agents, employees or bailees (including any act or failure to act taken at the written direction of the Servicer), except to the extent that such loss or damage results from the Indenture Trustee’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. The standards of care, limitation on liability and rights to indemnities set forth in Article XI of the Indenture shall apply to the duties and obligations of the Indenture Trustee hereunder.

Section 6.2. Indemnity. The Indenture Trustee, in its capacity as such hereunder, shall be responsible for the performance only of such duties as are specifically set forth herein, and no duty shall be implied from any provision hereof. The Indenture Trustee shall not be under any obligation or duty to perform any act which would involve it in expense or liability or to institute or defend any suit in respect hereof, or to advance any of its own monies. The Issuers, jointly and severally, shall indemnify and hold the Indenture Trustee, its employees and officers harmless from and against any loss, liability, cost or damage (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements) incurred by the Indenture Trustee in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, except to the extent that such loss or damage results from the Indenture Trustee’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. The foregoing indemnity shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

 

15


Section 6.3. Reliance. The Central Account Bank shall be protected in acting upon any notice, resolution, request, consent, order, certificate, report, opinion, bond or other paper, document or signature reasonably believed by it to be genuine, and it may be assumed that any Person purporting to act on behalf of any Person giving any of the foregoing in connection with the provisions hereof has been duly authorized to do so. The Central Account Bank may consult with legal counsel, and the advice or opinion of such counsel shall be full and complete authorization and protection in respect of any action taken or suffered by it hereunder and in good faith in accordance therewith. The Central Account Bank shall not be liable for any act or omission done or omitted to be done by the Central Account Bank in reliance upon any instruction, direction or certification received by the Central Account Bank and without gross negligence or willful misconduct. The Central Account Bank shall be entitled to execute any of the powers hereunder or perform any duties hereunder either directly or through agents or attorneys; provided, however, that the execution of such powers by any such agents or attorneys shall not diminish, or relieve the Central Account Bank for, responsibility therefor to the same degree as if the Central Account Bank itself had executed such powers.

  (b)

In connection with any resignation by the Central Account Bank, (i) the resigning Central Account Bank shall, (A) duly assign, transfer and deliver to the successor Central Account Bank this Agreement and all cash and Permitted Investments held by it hereunder, (B) authorize the filing of such financing statements and shall execute such other instruments prepared by the Issuers and approved by the Indenture Trustee or prepared by the Indenture Trustee as may be necessary to assign to the successor Central Account Bank, as agent for the

 

16


 

Indenture Trustee, any security interest in the Collateral existing in favor of the retiring Central Account Bank hereunder and to otherwise give effect to such succession and (C) take such other actions as may be reasonably required by the Indenture Trustee or the successor Central Account Bank in connection with the foregoing and (ii) the successor Central Account Bank shall establish in the Indenture Trustee’s name, as secured party, cash collateral accounts, which shall become the Securities Accounts for purposes of this Agreement upon the succession of such Central Account Bank, and which Securities Accounts shall also be “securities accounts” within the meaning of the UCC.

 

  (c) The Indenture Trustee at its sole discretion shall have the right, upon thirty (30) days notice to the Central Account Bank, to substitute the Central Account Bank with a successor Central Account Bank reasonably acceptable to the Issuers that satisfies the requirements of an Eligible Bank or to have one or more of the Accounts held by another Eligible Bank, provided that such successor Central Account Bank shall perform the duties of the Central Account Bank pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

Section 6.5. Indenture Trustee Appointed Attorney-In-Fact. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Issuers hereby irrevocably constitute and appoint the Indenture Trustee as the Issuers’ true and lawful attorney-in-fact, coupled with an interest and with full power of substitution, to execute, acknowledge and deliver any instruments and to exercise and enforce every right, power, remedy, option and privilege of the Issuers with respect to the Collateral, and do in the name, place and stead of the Issuers, all such acts, things and deeds for and on behalf of and in the name of the Issuers, which the Issuers are required to do hereunder or under the other Transaction Documents or which the Indenture Trustee may deem reasonably necessary or desirable to more fully vest in the Indenture Trustee the rights and remedies provided for herein and to accomplish the purposes of this Agreement including, without limitation, the filing of any UCC financing statements or continuation statements in appropriate public filing offices on behalf of the Issuers, in any of the foregoing cases, upon the Issuers’ failure to take any of the foregoing actions within fifteen (15) days after notice from the Indenture Trustee. The foregoing powers of attorney are irrevocable and coupled with an interest.

No delay or extension of time by the Indenture Trustee in exercising any power of sale, option or other right or remedy hereunder, and no notice or demand which may be given to or made upon the Issuers by the Indenture Trustee, shall constitute a waiver thereof, or limit, impair or prejudice the Indenture Trustee’s right, without notice or demand, to take any action against the Issuers or to exercise any other power of sale, option or any other right or remedy.

Section 8.4. Expenses. The Collateral shall secure, and the Issuers shall pay to the Indenture Trustee in accordance with the time frames set forth in the Indenture, from time to time, all costs and expenses for which the Issuers are liable under the Indenture and as follows:
