Board Representation. For so long as Purchaser (together with any Permitted Transferees (as defined in the A&R Stockholders Agreement) (Purchaser and any Permitted Transferees, collectively the “Stockholders”)) beneficially owns: (a) at least 33% of the outstanding shares of Company Common Stock and other securities of the Company entitled to vote generally in the election of directors of the Company (together, the “Company Securities”), Purchaser will be entitled to designate a number of directors equal to the majority of the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”), plus one (1) director and in these circumstances the majority of the directors of the Board shall be independent (the “Independent Directors”), (b) less than 33%, but at least 20%, of the Company Securities, Purchaser will be entitled to designate a number of directors equal to the majority of the Board, minus one (1) director, unless the Board consists of six (6) or fewer directors, in which case, Purchaser shall be entitled to designate two (2) directors to the Board, (c) less than 20%, but at least 10%, of the Company Securities, Purchaser will be entitled to designate a number of directors proportional to its interest (rounded up to the nearest whole number), unless the Board consists of six (6) or fewer directors, in which case, Purchaser shall be entitled to designate two (2) directors to the Board, and (d)less than 10%, but at least 5%, of the Company Securities, Purchaser will be entitled to designate a number of directors proportional to its interest (rounded up to the nearest whole number), unless the Board consists of six (6) or fewer directors, in which case, Purchaser shall be entitled to designate one (1) director to the Board. Purchaser’s right to nominate directors to the Board may not be transferred to a subsequent acquirer of its shares of the Company Securities. The Company covenants to take all reasonable actions to cause to be elected, and to continue in office, such nominees of Purchaser.

Voting Obligations.Purchaser shall refrain from taking any action to remove, or voting in favor of the removal, from the Board, prior to the expiration of their existing respective terms, Jay N. Levine, Roy A. Guthrie and Anahaita N. Kotval, in each case other than for cause.

Standstill Provisions. The Stockholders agree that, during the period beginning on the date the A&R Stockholders Agreement was executed and ending on the earlier of (i) January 3, 2020 and (ii) such time as the Stockholders collectively have beneficial ownership of less than 20% of the Company Securities (the “Standstill Period”), they shall not, and shall cause certain of their affiliates (such affiliates, “Controlled Affiliates”), and shall direct their representatives acting at their direction, and shall cause their Controlled Affiliates’ representatives acting at such Controlled Affiliates’ direction, not to, directly or indirectly, as part of a “group” (as such term is applied under Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder (the “Exchange Act”)), effect, or enter into any agreement to effect, (x) any acquisition of any Company Securities, or rights or options to acquire any Company Securities, in each case, whether or not any of the foregoing may be acquired or obtained immediately or only after the passage of time or upon the satisfaction of one or more conditions to any agreement, arrangement or understanding or otherwise or (y) any tender or exchange offer, consolidation, business combination, acquisition, merger or other extraordinary transaction involving the Company or a material portion of the assets of the Company, in each case without the approval of the majority of the Independent Directors who are disinterested and independent under Delaware law (the “Disinterested Directors”), in each case subject to certain exceptions. Six (6) months after the Closing, the Stockholders may purchase additional shares of Company Securities so that the Stockholders own, in the aggregate (including Company Securities previously owned by Purchaser and its affiliates), up to a maximum beneficial ownership of 52% of the outstanding shares of Company Securities.

Matters Reserved for Approval of the Disinterested Directors. For as long as the Stockholders have beneficial ownership of at least 20% of the Company Securities, the following actions shall require the approval of the majority of the Disinterested Directors: (a) any transaction or series of transactions between any Stockholder or any of their respective affiliates, on the one hand, and the Company or any of its subsidiaries, on the other hand, that could reasonably be expected to have a value in excess of $30,000,000 (other than ordinary course purchases of asset-backed securities from the Company or any of its subsidiaries on arms-length, market terms in an amount not exceeding $500,000,000 in any transaction), (b) any enforcement or waiver of the rights of the Company or any of its subsidiaries under any agreement between the Company or any of its subsidiaries, on the one hand, and any Stockholder or any of their respective affiliates, on the other hand, and (c) any management, monitoring, service, transaction or other similar fee payable to any Stockholder or any of their respective affiliates, with the exception of certain pre-approved transactions.

Until January 3, 2021, each Stockholder shall not, and shall cause each of its affiliates not to, directly or indirectly, alone or in concert with any other person, engage in any “Rule 13e-3 transaction” as defined in Rule 13e-3 under the Exchange Act without the approval of the majority of the Disinterested Directors. Until January 3, 2020, each Stockholder shall not transfer (or enter into an agreement to transfer), record or beneficial ownership of any Company Securities to a person or “group” (as defined in Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act) without the approval of the majority of the Disinterested Directors.

Registration Rights. Following 180 days after the Closing, the Stockholders will be entitled to customary demand and piggyback registration rights, subject to customary underwriter cutbacks.

Termination. The A&R Stockholders Agreement will automatically terminate on the date the Stockholders beneficially own less than 1% of the Voting Power of the Company (as defined in the A&R Stockholders Agreement).
