SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK, WITH RESPECT TO ANY DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE PROGRAM AGREEMENTS.
25. No Waivers, Etc.
No express or implied waiver of any Event of Default by any party shall constitute a waiver of any other Event of Default and no exercise of any remedy hereunder by any party shall constitute a waiver of its right to exercise any other remedy hereunder. No modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement and no consent by any party to a departure herefrom shall be effective unless and until such shall be in writing and duly executed by each of the parties hereto. Without limitation on any of the foregoing, the failure to give a notice pursuant to Section 6.a), Section 16.a) or otherwise, will not constitute a waiver of any right to do so at a later date.
a. The parties recognize that each Transaction is a “repurchase agreement” as that term is defined in Section 101 of Title 11 of the United States Code, as amended, a “securities contract” as that term is defined in Section 741 of Title 11 of the United States Code, as amended, and a “master netting agreement” as that term is defined in Section 101(38A)(A) of the Bankruptcy Code, that all payments hereunder are deemed “margin payments” or “settlement payments” as defined in Title 11 of the United States Code, and that the pledge of the Repurchase Assets constitutes “a security agreement or other arrangement or other credit enhancement” that is “related to” this Agreement and Transactions hereunder within the meaning of Sections 101(38A)(A), 101(47)(A)(v) and 741(7)(A)(xi) of the Bankruptcy Code. Seller, Administrative Agent and Buyers further recognize and intend that this Agreement is an agreement to provide financial accommodations and is not subject to assumption pursuant to Bankruptcy Code Section 365(a).
b. Administrative Agent’s or a Buyer’s right to liquidate the Purchased Mortgage Loans delivered to it in connection with the Transactions hereunder or to accelerate or terminate this Agreement or otherwise exercise any other remedies pursuant to Section 16 hereof is a contractual right to liquidate, accelerate or terminate such Transaction as described in Bankruptcy Code Sections 555, 559 and 561; any payments or transfers of property made with respect to this Agreement or any Transaction to satisfy a Margin Deficit shall be considered a “margin payment” as such term is defined in Bankruptcy Code Section 741(5).
c. The parties agree and acknowledge that if a party hereto is an “insured depository institution,” as such term is defined in the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, as amended (“FDIA”), then each Transaction hereunder is a “qualified financial contract,” as that term is defined in FDIA and any rules, orders or policy statements thereunder (except insofar as the type of assets subject to such Transaction would render such definition inapplicable).
