Unless an amortization event occurs, HVF III is not required to make any principal payments on (i) the Series 2022-1 Notes until January 2025, and (ii) the Series 2022-2 Notes until January 2027. Beginning in January 2025 for the Series 2022-1 Notes and January 2027 for the Series 2022-2 Notes, HVF III is expected to make a payment of one-sixth of the initial principal amount until repayment is made in full on the applicable legal final payment date for such series of notes in June 2026 and June 2028, respectively.

 

The occurrence and continuation of an amortization event related to the Series 2022 Notes may result in HVF III being required to pay principal on the Series 2022 Notes earlier than anticipated. Amortization events include, among other things, the failure to pay principal or interest in a timely manner, the failure to maintain sufficient assets compared to the outstanding amount of debt, the failure to maintain sufficient liquidity in the form of reserve accounts or letters of credit, the presence of certain liens on HVF III’s assets, any misrepresentations by HVF III, any covenant defaults and defaults by either HVF III or THC, as administrator of HVF III under the Administration Agreement dated as of June 29, 2021, which was previously filed as Exhibit 10.9 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on July 7, 2021. In the event that one or more amortization events occurs and is continuing, holders of the Series 2022 Notes may force HVF III or BNYM on their behalf to sell vehicles and, if a default occurs under the Master Motor Vehicle Operating Lease and Servicing Agreement (HVF III) (the “Lease”) dated as of June 29, 2021, which was previously filed as Exhibit 10.8 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on July 7, 2021, the holders of the Series 2022 Notes may force THC and/or DTG Operations, each as a lessee under the Lease, to return vehicles for sale by HVF III. Proceeds of any such sales made during the enforcement of remedies are required to repay the Series 2022 Notes and any notes issued by HVF III in the future.

 

The proceeds of the Series 2022 Notes were used in part to repay the amounts outstanding on HVF III’s Series 2021-A Variable Funding Rental Car Asset Backed Notes. Remaining funds are expected to be used for the future acquisition or refinancing of vehicles to be leased under the Lease.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the Series 2022 Notes are qualified in their entirety by reference to the complete terms and conditions of the Series 2022-1 Supplement and the Series 2022-2 Supplement, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, which are incorporated by reference herein.

Section 2.6         FATCA. In the event that a Note Owner receives a Definitive Note representing such Note Owner’s interest in the Class A/B/C/D Notes in accordance with Section 2.13 (Definitive Notes) of the Base Indenture:

 

(a)          Each Series 2022-1 Noteholder (and any Note Owner of any Series 2022-1 Note) will be required to (i) provide HVF III, the Trustee and their respective agents with any correct, complete and accurate information that may be required under applicable law (or reasonably believed by HVF III to be required under applicable law) for such parties to comply with FATCA, (ii) take any other commercially reasonable actions that HVF III, the Trustee or their respective agents deem necessary to comply with FATCA and (iii) update any such information provided in the preceding clauses (i) or (ii) promptly upon learning that any such information previously provided has become obsolete or incorrect or is otherwise required. Each such holder agrees, or by acquiring such Series 2022-1 Note or an interest in such Series 2022-1 Note will be deemed to agree, that HVF III may provide such information and any other information regarding its investment in such Series 2022-1 Notes to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service or other relevant governmental authority in accordance with applicable law. Each Series 2022-1 Noteholder and Note Owner of any Series 2022-1 Notes also acknowledges that the failure to provide information requested in connection with FATCA may cause HVF III to withhold on payments to such Series 2022-1 Noteholder (or Note Owner of such Series 2022-1 Notes) in accordance with applicable law. Any amounts withheld in order to comply with FATCA will not be grossed up and will be deemed to have been paid in respect of the relevant Series 2022-1 Notes.

 

(b)          HVF III, the Trustee and any other Paying Agent are hereby authorized to retain from amounts otherwise distributable to any Series 2022-1 Noteholder sufficient funds for the payment of any such tax that, in their respective sole discretion, is legally owed or required to be withheld by them, including in connection with FATCA (but such authorization shall not prevent HVF III from contesting any such tax in appropriate legal proceedings and withholding payment of such tax, if permitted by law, pending the outcome of such legal proceedings), and to timely remit such amounts to the appropriate taxing authority. If any Series 2022-1 Noteholder or Note Owner of a Series 2022-1 Note wishes to apply for a refund of any such withholding tax, HVF III, the Trustee or such other Paying Agent shall reasonably cooperate with such Person in providing readily available information so long as such Person agrees to reimburse HVF III, the Trustee or such Paying Agent for any out-of-pocket expenses incurred. Nothing herein shall impose an obligation, nor relieve any obligation imposed under applicable law, on the part of HVF III, the Trustee or any other Paying Agent to determine the amount of any tax or withholding obligation on their part or in respect of the Series 2022-1 Notes.

For the avoidance of doubt, if it is determined that the Series 2022-1 Noteholders have any right, title or interest in, to or under the Series-Specific Collateral with respect to any Series of Notes other than Series 2022-1 Notes, then the Series 2022-1 Noteholders agree that their right, title and interest in, to or under such Series-Specific Collateral shall be subordinate in all respects to the claims or rights of the Noteholders with respect to such other Series of Notes, and in such case, this Series 2022-1 Supplement shall constitute a subordination agreement for purposes of Section 510(a) of the Bankruptcy Code.

 

Section 4.6             Duty of the Trustee.

Each Series 2022-2 Noteholder and Note Owner of any Series 2022-2 Notes also acknowledges that the failure to provide information requested in connection with FATCA may cause HVF III to withhold on payments to such Series 2022-2 Noteholder (or Note Owner of such Series 2022-2 Notes) in accordance with applicable law. Any amounts withheld in order to comply with FATCA will not be grossed up and will be deemed to have been paid in respect of the relevant Series 2022-2 Notes.

If any Series 2022-2 Noteholder or Note Owner of a Series 2022-2 Note wishes to apply for a refund of any such withholding tax, HVF III, the Trustee or such other Paying Agent shall reasonably cooperate with such Person in providing readily available information so long as such Person agrees to reimburse HVF III, the Trustee or such Paying Agent for any out-of-pocket expenses incurred. Nothing herein shall impose an obligation, nor relieve any obligation imposed under applicable law, on the part of HVF III, the Trustee or any other Paying Agent to determine the amount of any tax or withholding obligation on their part or in respect of the Series 2022-2 Notes.

For the avoidance of doubt, if it is determined that the Series 2022-2 Noteholders have any right, title or interest in, to or under the Series-Specific Collateral with respect to any Series of Notes other than Series 2022-2 Notes, then the Series 2022-2 Noteholders agree that their right, title and interest in, to or under such Series-Specific Collateral shall be subordinate in all respects to the claims or rights of the Noteholders with respect to such other Series of Notes, and in such case, this Series 2022-2 Supplement shall constitute a subordination agreement for purposes of Section 510(a) of the Bankruptcy Code.
