What is a Loan Purchase Agreement?

A loan purchase agreement is an agreement between a lender and borrower that states how a secured financial asset, such as real estate or equipment, will be purchased. The buyer of this type of security agrees to buy the asset at some point for an agreed-upon price.

A loan purchase agreement may also be called "sale and repurchase" or "forward sale". Businesses often use loan purchase agreements with short-term cash flow needs since they can use their assets as collateral while still retaining control over them until they are sold.

  2.1. Seller Commitment.

On or prior to a Launch Date, Purchaser will establish a Purchaser Online Account with Seller. Any Purchaser Online Account may be used by Purchaser to purchase and hold Loans meeting one of the Credit Criteria. To the extent that Purchaser wishes to purchase, pursuant to this Agreement, Loans meeting a different set of Credit Criteria, Purchaser shall establish an additional Purchaser Online Account that shall be subject to the terms of this Agreement. Commencing on the Launch Date, Seller will grant Purchaser the right to view, commit to and purchase Eligible Loans through the Purchaser Online Account. Upon Purchaser’s selection of an Eligible Loan, Seller commits to offer Purchaser, and Purchaser hereby commits to purchase such Eligible Loan; provided, however, that any such prospective Eligible Loan that becomes a Non-Offered Loan shall be released and removed from any Purchase Commitment.

In addition, Purchaser may a) notify Seller of a maximum total amount of Eligible Loans that Purchaser will accept for purchase during the course of a calendar month (the “Maximum Purchase Amount”, and 2) provide its instructions as to the allocation of such Maximum Purchase Amount between grades, terms and other characteristics of Eligible Loans it wishes to


purchase. This notification and instruction shall be in the format set forth in Exhibit C to this Agreement (the “Purchase Instructions”). Any Purchase Instructions provided by Purchaser to Seller shall be effective as of the date such Purchase Instructions are accepted by the Seller in writing in its sole discretion and will apply for each subsequent calendar month during the Term of this Agreement, until canceled by either Party or superseded by a new Purchase Instruction. In the event that Purchase provides Seller with a Purchase Instruction, Purchaser acknowledges that Seller will endeavor in good faith to provide a volume of Eligible Loans up to Purchaser’s Maximum Purchase Amount, but Seller makes no guaranty or warranty that it will provide such volume (or any volume) to Purchaser in any given month. Purchaser hereby delegates to Seller the authority to make Purchase Commitments and purchase Eligible Loans on behalf of Purchaser through the Purchaser Online Account up to the Maximum Purchase Amount in accordance with any then-current Purchase Instructions. Upon selection of an Eligible Loan in accordance with the Purchase Instructions, Seller commits to offer Purchaser, and Purchaser hereby commits to purchase such Eligible Loan; provided, however, that any Non-Offered Loans shall be released and removed from any Purchase Commitment.

 

  2.2. Purchase Procedures for Offer, Commitment and Funding of Purchased Loans.

(a) From time to time, (i) Purchaser, in its sole discretion, or (ii) Seller, acting upon its delegated authority to make Purchase Commitments on behalf of Purchaser as provided in Section 2.1 above, may make a Purchase Commitment for Eligible Loans through the Purchaser Online Account, subject to the Purchase Limitation as defined below. Provided that such committed Eligible Loan does not become a Non-Offered Loan, Purchaser will be irrevocably obligated to purchase the Eligible Loan. Seller will provide a Purchaser Activity Status Report listing all the Eligible Loans which are subject to purchase by Purchaser. Prior to any Purchase Commitment, the Purchaser will have sufficient available funds in its Purchaser’s Online Account for all Purchase Commitments it intends to make on such day. Purchaser shall only be able to execute Purchase Commitments to the extent of sufficient available funds in its Purchaser’s Online Account. Any determination as to whether to make a Purchase Commitment for any Eligible Loan shall be in Purchaser’s sole discretion and at Purchaser’s own risk that information supplied by any Borrower may be incorrect, and Seller makes no representation as to the correctness of any information provided by any Borrower with respect to any Eligible Loan.

(b) With respect to each Eligible Loan to which Purchaser is committed, Seller shall provide prompt notice to Purchaser of any change to the ongoing status of the prospective Eligible Loan, including whether such Loan has become a Non-Offered Loan or such Loan is ready for purchase by Purchaser. Seller will debit the Purchaser Online Account for the full purchase price of each Purchased Loan as indicated through the Purchaser Online Account (the “Purchase Price”). Purchaser will not withdraw funds from the Purchaser Online Account if, after such withdrawal, sufficient available funds in such Purchaser Online Account would be less than the dollar amount necessary to meet Purchaser’s aggregate Purchase Commitments as of the applicable Purchase Date.

(c) Seller may impose a limit on the aggregate amount of Purchase Commitments that Purchaser may make in a given month (a “Purchase Limitation”). If


Seller wishes to impose such a limit, Seller will provide Purchaser thirty (30) days’ prior notice, informing Purchaser of the total aggregate dollar limit of Purchase Commitments that Seller will accept. The Purchase Limitation will go into effect on the first day of the month immediately following the thirtieth day following the notice, and will apply for each month going forward until Seller provides notice that the Purchase Limitation has been modified or lifted. If a Purchase Limitation is in place, Purchaser will not be permitted to make Purchase Commitments in excess of the Purchase Limitation without prior approval of Seller, which approval may be withheld in the sole and absolute discretion of Seller.

 

  2.3. Conditions Precedent to Purchases.

Purchaser’s obligation to purchase each Eligible Loan in any Purchase Commitment shall be subject to all of the representations, warranties and covenants of Seller contained in this Agreement being true and correct in all material respects as of the applicable Purchase Date. Purchaser’s right to purchase each Eligible Loan hereunder shall be conditioned upon there being sufficient available funds in the Purchaser Online Account to meet any payment obligation.

 

  2.4. Payment of Purchase Price and Confirmation.

Immediately upon receipt by Seller of the Purchase Price on the Purchase Date, Purchaser shall become, for all purposes, the owner of such Purchased Loan. The Parties acknowledge and agree that the Purchase Price for each Eligible Loan reflects an arms-length negotiation, resolution and transaction.

 

  2.5. Modification of Loan Document Package.

If any of the documents included in a Loan Document Package are modified, amended, or replaced by Seller in a manner that alters the economic terms of the Loan other than as contemplated by the Loan Documents prior to the Purchase Date, then Seller shall submit such modifications, amendments, or replacement documents to Purchaser, together with a summary of the changes made, at least one (1) Business Day prior to such Purchase Date. Purchaser shall not be obligated to purchase any Eligible Loan if Purchaser does not agree, or has not previously agreed in writing to such modifications, amendments or replacement documents for such Eligible Loan.

 

  2.6. Limitation on Purchase Obligation.

Purchaser shall have no obligation to purchase any Eligible Loan: (a) at any time after the termination of this Agreement, except those Eligible Loans for which outstanding Purchase Commitments have been made; or (b) if any Event of Default by Seller has occurred and is continuing at the time of the sale to Purchaser.

 

  2.7. Control of Purchased Loan.

(a) During the term of this Agreement, and as required by Applicable Law thereafter, Seller shall maintain accurate Records with respect to all Purchased Loans.


(b) Control and ownership of each Purchased Loan shall be established by an electronic Record of such Purchased Loan that: (i) contains an identifiable and authoritative copy of the Loan Documents; (ii) identifies the Purchaser as the purchaser of the Purchased Loan; (iii) is made available to Purchaser through the Purchaser Online Account; (iv) is not altered to add or change the identification of Purchaser as purchaser of the Purchased Loan without the participation of Purchaser; and (v) is not revised except in accordance with the terms of the Loan Servicing Agreement, the Loan Documents, or the written consent of Purchaser, or unless required by Applicable Law.

ARTICLE 3.

TRUE SALE; GRANT OF SECURITY INTEREST; ENFORCEMENT

 

  3.1. True Sale.

Each of Seller and Purchaser agree that the transactions contemplated hereby are intended to be and shall constitute sales of the Purchased Loans transferred pursuant to Article 2 above, and are not intended to be financings or loans by Purchaser to Seller. The Parties shall treat such transactions as sales for tax, accounting and all other purposes. The sale of each Purchased Loan pursuant to Article 2 above transfers to Purchaser all of Seller’s right, title and interest in and to such Purchased Loan, and Seller will not retain any residual rights with respect to any Purchased Loan. Notwithstanding the two immediately preceding sentences, Purchased Loans are sold servicing-retained in accordance with, and Seller shall retain rights to service the Purchased Loans under, the Servicing Agreement, unless otherwise specified in writing by the parties, and Seller shall retain the customer relationship, including all marketing rights, with Borrower.

 

  3.2. Grant of Security Interest.

(a) Notwithstanding the intent of the Parties, in the event that the transactions contemplated hereby are construed to be financings by Purchaser to Seller or the Purchased Loans are determined or held to be property of Seller, then: (a) Seller hereby grants to Purchaser a present and continuing security interest in and to the following, whether now existing or hereafter created, (i) all Purchased Loans, (ii) all of the related Loan Document Packages for such Purchased Loans, and (iii) all proceeds (as defined in the UCC) of the foregoing (collectively, the “Purchased Loan Collateral”); (b) this Agreement shall also be deemed to be a security agreement within the meaning of Article 9 of the UCC; (c) the transfers of the Purchased Loans provided for herein shall be deemed to be a grant by Seller to Purchaser of a first priority lien upon and security interest in all of Seller’s right, title and interest in and to the Purchased Loan Collateral; (d) the possession by Purchaser of the Purchased Loans and related Loan Document Packages and such other items of property as constitute instruments, chattel paper, money, negotiable documents, general intangibles or accounts shall be deemed to be “possession by the secured party” for purposes of perfecting the lien or security interest pursuant to the UCC, including Section 9-305 of the UCC; (e) Purchaser is hereby authorized to take all necessary or appropriate actions to perfect its security interest in the Purchased Loan Collateral and shall file financing statements on form UCC-1 naming Purchaser as secured party and Seller as debtor, and identifying the Purchased Loan Collateral as collateral therein; and (f) notifications to Persons holding such property and acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from Persons holding such


property, shall be deemed notifications to, or acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from, financial intermediaries, bailees or agents (as applicable) of Purchaser for the purpose of perfecting such lien or security interest under the UCC. Any assignment of the interests of Purchaser in the Purchased Loans pursuant to any provision hereof shall also be deemed to be an assignment of any lien or security interest created hereby in the Purchased Loan Collateral.

(b) Seller shall not create or permit any security interest in Purchased Loan Collateral, except in favor of Purchaser and, if necessary, shall modify any previously executed loan or security agreement to eliminate any security interest granted in the Purchased Loan Collateral, including without limitation any security interest in such Purchased Loan Collateral as proceeds or as after-acquired property.

(c) To the extent consistent with this Agreement, Seller and Purchaser shall take such actions as may be deemed reasonably necessary or appropriate such that, if this Agreement were deemed to create a lien upon or security interest in the Purchased Loan Collateral and all such reasonably necessary or appropriate actions had been taken, such lien or security interest would be deemed to be a perfected security interest of first priority under Applicable Law and will be maintained as such throughout the term of this Agreement, including, without limitation, the execution and delivery by Seller to the Purchaser of all assignments, security agreements, financing statements and other documents Purchaser reasonably requests, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Purchaser.

 

  3.3. Purchaser Rights.

Seller acknowledges that because it has sold the Purchased Loans to Purchaser, Purchaser shall have all the rights associated with such Purchased Loans, including the right to take any action against any Borrower for non-payment subject to the provisions of the Servicing Agreement.

 

  3.4. Servicing Arrangements.

Concurrently with its entering into this Agreement, Purchaser has entered into the Servicing Agreement with Seller under which Seller will act as the Servicer of the Purchased Loans for Purchaser. Any transferee of a Purchased Loan by Purchaser or any subsequent party will be bound by the Servicing Agreement as if an original party thereto. Seller shall act as the Servicer of the Purchased Loans until such time as Purchaser terminates Seller as Servicer and appoints a successor Servicer of the Purchased Loans, which termination and subsequent appointment of a successor Servicer can only occur upon specific events set forth in the Servicing Agreement.

  6.1. Further Assurances.

Each Party, upon the reasonable written request of the other Party, shall execute and deliver to such other Party any reasonably necessary or appropriate additional documents, instruments or agreements as may be reasonably necessary or appropriate to effectuate the purposes of this Agreement or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereunder. Each Party also agrees to perform its respective obligations under this Agreement in material compliance with Applicable Law and to reasonably cooperate in good faith with the other in resolving compliance with Applicable Law issues.

 

  6.2. Confidentiality.

(a) During the term of this Agreement, a Party (the “Recipient”) may receive or have access to certain information of the other Party (the “Discloser”) that is “Confidential Information,” including, though not limited to, records, documents, proprietary information, technology, software, trade secrets, financial and business information, or data related to either Party’s products (including the discovery, invention, research, improvement, development, manufacture, or sale thereof), processes, or general business operations (including sales, costs, profits, pricing methods, organization, employee or customer lists and process), whether oral, written, or communicated via electronic media


or otherwise disclosed or made available to a Party or to which a Party is given access pursuant to this Agreement by the other Party, and any information obtained through access to any information assets or information systems (including computers, networks, voice mail, etc.), that, if not otherwise described above, is of such a nature that a reasonable person would believe to be confidential. Recipient shall protect the disclosed Confidential Information by using the same degree of care, but no less than a reasonable degree of care, to prevent the unauthorized use, dissemination, or publication of the Confidential Information as Recipient uses to protect its own Confidential Information of a like nature. Recipient’s obligations shall only extend to (a) Confidential Information, (b) information that is marked as confidential at the time of disclosure, or (c) information that is unmarked (e.g., orally, visually or tangibly disclosed) but treated as confidential at the time of disclosure. This Agreement imposes no obligation upon Recipient with respect to information that: (1) was in Recipient’s possession before receipt from Discloser as evidenced by its books and records prior to the receipt of such information; (2) is or becomes a matter of public knowledge through no fault of Recipient, or its employees, consultants, advisors, officers or directors or Affiliates; (3) is rightfully received by Recipient from a third party without a duty of confidentiality; (4) is disclosed by Discloser to a third party without a duty of confidentiality on the third party; (5) is independently developed by Recipient without reference to the Confidential Information; (6) is disclosed under operation of law; or (7) is disclosed by Recipient with Discloser’s prior written approval. In addition to the foregoing, Purchaser covenants that it will not use, in violation of any Applicable Law, any material non-public information that has been provided to it by Seller in Purchaser’s decision to invest in any securities issued by the Seller, provided that the Loans and the Purchased Loans shall not be considered securities for the purposes of this Section 6.2(a). Recipient may disclose Confidential Information to its officers, directors, employees, members, partners, potential and existing financing sources (including, with respect to Purchaser, any potential or existing investor in asset-backed securities for which the Purchased Loans are included in the collateral or trust assets), advisors or representatives (including, without limitation, attorneys, accountants, insurers, rating agencies, consultants, bankers, financial advisors, custodian and backup servicer) (collectively, “Representatives”) who need to have access to such Confidential Information. Recipient shall be responsible for any breach of this Section 6.2 by any of its Representatives.

(b) Loan Documentation Packages may include Confidential Information that also meets the definition of non-public personally identifiable information (“NPI”) regarding a Borrower as defined by Title V of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 and implementing regulations (collectively, the “GLB Act”). To the extent that Purchaser has access to NPI through Loan Documentation Packages or any other source, Purchaser agrees that such information will not be disclosed or made available to any third party, agent or employee for any reason whatsoever, other than with respect to: (1) Purchaser’s authorized employees, agents or representatives on a “need to know” basis in order for Purchaser to perform its obligations under this Agreement and other agreements related to the Purchased Loans, provided that such agents or representatives are subject to a confidentiality agreement which shall be consistent with and no less restrictive than the provisions of this Article 6; and (2) as required by law or as otherwise permitted by this Agreement or the GLB Act regarding “Privacy” of NPI, either during the term of this Agreement or after the termination of this Agreement, provided that, prior to any disclosure of NPI as required by Applicable Law, Purchaser shall (i) not disclose any such information until it has notified Seller in writing of all actual


or threatened legal compulsion of disclosure, and any actual legal obligation of disclosure promptly upon becoming so obligated, and (ii) cooperate to the fullest extent possible with all lawful efforts by Seller to resist or limit disclosure. To the extent that Purchaser maintains or accesses any NPI, Purchaser shall comply with all Applicable Law regarding use, disclosure and safeguarding of any and all consumer information and will maintain a comprehensive written information security program, in compliance with Applicable Law, which shall include all necessary measures, including the establishment and maintenance of appropriate policies, procedures and technical, physical, and administrative safeguards, to (w) ensure the security and confidentiality of the NPI, (x) protect against any foreseeable threats or hazards to the security or integrity of NPI, (y) protect against unauthorized access to or use of such information, and (z) ensure appropriate disposal of NPI.

(c) Should there be any unauthorized release or breach of NPI maintained by a Party (“Data Breach”), such Party agrees to immediately provide notice to the other Party of same and shall specify the corrective action that was or will be taken. The breached or releasing Party shall assess the nature and scope of any Data Breach and specifically identify the NPI that has or may have been improperly accessed, released or misused. The breached or releasing Party shall take reasonable and appropriate steps to contain and control any Data Breach relating to the NPI and assist the other Party at the expense of the breached or releasing Party with all reasonably requested steps needed to notify Borrowers of any such Data Breach.

(d) Following the termination of this Agreement, each Party agrees that it will return or destroy all copies of Confidential Information of the other Party, without retaining any copies thereof, and destroy all copies of any analyses, compilations, studies or other documents prepared by it or for its use containing or reflecting any Confidential Information; provided, however, that each Party may retain such limited copies or materials containing Confidential Information of the other Party for customary document retention and audit purposes, as required by Applicable Law, and subject to the terms of this Agreement.

 

  6.3. No Use of Non-Public Borrower Data.

In the course of purchasing and holding Purchased Loans, Purchaser may have access to certain information concerning Borrowers. Such information could include any and all items included in a Loan Document Package and all information included in a listing for an Eligible Loan (the “Borrower Data”). Certain of the Borrower Data is published in connection with an Eligible Loan, and other information, included in certain documents in the Loan Document Package, is not publicly disclosed and may constitute NPI (collectively, “Non-Public Borrower Data”). Purchaser will not utilize Non-Public Borrower Data for any purpose not in connection with the transactions contemplated under this Agreement, and will not seek the identity of any Borrower or contact any Borrower for any purpose.


ARTICLE 7.

REPURCHASE OBLIGATION

 

  7.1. Repurchase for Verified ID Fraud.

In the event that any Purchased Loan sold by Seller to Purchaser hereunder experiences an occurrence of fraud as evidenced by:

 

  (i) Obtaining an identity theft report (“ID Theft Report”) from law enforcement,

 

  (ii) preparation of a Federal Trade Commission or company-specific equivalent ID Theft Affidavit, Seller shall repurchase such Purchased Loan at an amount equal to the related Repurchase Price (as defined in Section 7.2 below) within thirty (30) Business Days of its review and approval of the foregoing.

 

  7.2. Repurchase Price.

For each repurchase of a Purchased Loan under Section 7.1, the “Repurchase Price” to be paid by Seller shall be equal to the original Purchase Price paid by Purchaser, minus all payments, if any, received by Purchaser with respect to such Purchased Loan after the Purchase Date. Upon receipt of such Repurchase Price, Purchaser shall transfer its interest in such repurchased Purchased Loan to Seller on an “AS-IS,” “WHERE-IS” basis, without any representations or warranties other than with respect to Purchaser’s clear and marketable title to such Repurchased Loan. Any repurchase by Seller pursuant to Section 7.1 shall be made by the wire transfer of immediately available funds to the bank account as designated by the Purchaser.
