The Net Investment shall be reduced by the amount of such payment actually received by the Company. (b) If on any day any of the representations or warranties in Article III is no longer true with respect to a Receivable, the Transferor shall be deemed to have received on such day a Collection of such Receivable in full and the Transferor shall on such day pay, if and only to the extent that the failure to pay such amount would result in the Percentage Factor exceeding the Maximum Percentage Factor, to the Master Servicer an amount equal to the aggregate Percentage Factor of the Outstanding Balance of such Receivable and such amount shall be allocated to the Company and applied by the Master Servicer as a Collection allocable to the Transferred Interest in accordance with Section 2.5 or 2.6, as applicable. The Net Investment shall be reduced by the amount of such payment actually received by the Company. The Company shall automatically and without further action (including, without limitation, the filing of any notice or UCC termination statement) be deemed to transfer, assign and otherwise convey to the Transferor, free and clear of any Adverse Claim created by the Company but otherwise without recourse, representation or warranty, all right, title and interest of the Company in and to such Receivable and all Related Security with respect thereto and all proceeds thereof. -24- (c) Any payment by an Obligor in respect of any indebtedness owed by it to the Transferor shall, except as otherwise specified by such Obligor or otherwise required by contract or law and unless otherwise instructed by the Company, be applied as a Collection of any Receivable of such Obligor included in the Transferred Interest (starting with the oldest such Receivable) to the extent of any amounts then due and payable thereunder before being applied to any other receivable or other indebtedness of such Obligor.

There shall be established on the ------------------ day of the initial Incremental Transfer hereunder and maintained, for the benefit of the Company, with the Collateral Agent, a segregated account (the "Collection Account"), bearing a designation clearly indicating that the funds deposited therein are held for the benefit of the Company. The Master Servicer shall remit daily within forty-eight hours of receipt to the Collection Account all Collections received with respect to any Receivables; provided, however, the Master Servicer shall be permitted to make payments to the Company on the last day of each Tranche Period instead of depositing funds into the Collection Account on a daily basis for so long as, and only for so long as no Master Servicer default and no other Termination Event has occurred hereunder. Funds on deposit in the Collection Account (other than investment earnings) shall be invested by the Collateral Agent in Eligible Investments that will mature so that such funds will be available prior to the last day of each successive Tranche Period following such investment. On the last day of each fiscal month, all interest and earnings (net of losses and investment expenses) on funds on deposit in the Collection Account shall be retained in the Collection Account and be available to make any payments required to be made hereunder (including Discount) to the Company.

In the event that any withholding or deduction from any payment made by the payor hereunder is required in respect of any Taxes, then such payor shall: (a) pay directly to the relevant authority the full amount required to be so withheld or deducted; (b) promptly forward to the Administrative Agent an official receipt or other documentation satisfactory to the Administrative Agent evidencing such payment to such authority; and (c) pay to the recipient such additional amount or amounts as is necessary to ensure that the net amount actually received by the recipient will equal the full amount such recipient would have received had no such withholding or deduction been required. Moreover, if any Taxes are directly asserted against any recipient with respect to any payment received by such recipient hereunder, the recipient may pay such Taxes and the payor will promptly pay such additional amounts (including any penalties, interest or expenses) as shall be necessary in order that the net amount received by the recipient after the payment of such Taxes (including any Taxes on such additional amount) shall equal the amount such recipient would have received had such Taxes not been asserted. If the payor fails to pay any Taxes when due to the appropriate taxing authority or fails to remit to the recipient the required receipts or other required documentary evidence, the payor shall indemnify the recipient for any incremental Taxes, interest, or penalties that may become payable by any recipient as a result of any such failure. -26- SECTION II.14.

Until the Company gives notice to Anthony Industries, Inc. of the designation of a new Master Servicer, Anthony Industries, Inc. is hereby designated as, and hereby agrees to perform the duties and obligations of, the Master Servicer pursuant to the terms hereof. The Master Servicer may perform its servicing duties and obligations hereunder either acting directly or through one or more sub-servicers; provided, however, the Master Servicer will -------- ------- remain primarily liable for the servicing of the Receivables and have the ultimate responsibility for ensuring that the sub-servicers perform their duties as such.

The Company may notify any Obligor of the Transferred Interest. -37- SECTION VI.2. Duties of Master Servicer. ------------------------- (a) The Master Servicer shall take all such action as may be necessary or advisable to collect each Receivable from time to time, all in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations, with reasonable care and diligence, and in accordance with the Credit and Collection Policies. Each of the Transferor and the Company hereby appoints as its agent the Master Servicer, from time to time designated pursuant to Section 6.1, to enforce its respective rights and interests in and under the Receivables, the Related Security and the Contracts. The Master Servicer shall set aside for the account of the Transferor and the Company their respective allocable shares of the Collections of Receivables in accordance with Sections 2.5 and 2.6. The Master Servicer shall segregate and deposit to the Company's account the Company's allocable share of Collections of Receivables when required pursuant to Article II hereof. So long as no Termination Event shall have occurred and be continuing, the Transferor may, in accordance with the Credit and Collection Policies, extend the maturity of Receivables, but not beyond forty five (45) days, and extend the maturity or adjust the Outstanding Balance as the Transferor may determine to be appropriate to maximize Collections thereof; provided, however, that such extension or -------- ------- adjustment shall not alter the status of such Receivable as a Delinquent Receivable or a Defaulted Receivable; provided, further, that no such extension -------- ------- or adjustment shall be made if such extension or adjustment would result in such Receivable being required to be paid more than 364 days from the original billing date therefor. The Transferor shall deliver to the Master Servicer and the Master Servicer shall hold in trust for the Transferor and the Company in accordance with their respective interests, all Records which evidence or relate to Receivables or Related Security. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Company shall have the absolute and unlimited right to direct the Master Servicer (whether the Master Servicer is the Transferor or any other Person) to commence or settle any legal action to enforce collection of any Receivable or to foreclose upon or repossess any Related Security. (b) The Master Servicer shall hold for the benefit of the Transferor Collections received minus the Percentage Factor of such Collections. On the last day of each Tranche Period, the Master Servicer shall deduct from such Collections and pay to the Company in reduction of the Net Investment any amounts due under Section 2.9 hereof and unpaid from the Transferor and turn the remainder of such Collections over to the Transferor. In addition, the Master Servicer shall, as soon as practicable following receipt thereof, turn over to the Transferor any collections of any indebtedness of any Obligor which is not a Receivable. If the Transferor is not the Master Servicer, the Master Servicer, by giving three Business Days' prior written notice to the Company may revise the percentage used to calculate the Servicing Fee so long as the revised percentage will not result in a Servicing Fee that exceeds 110% of the reasonable and appropriate out-of-pocket costs and expenses of such Master Servicer incurred in connection with the performance of its obligations hereunder as documented to the reasonable satisfaction of the Company. The Master Servicer, if other than the Transferor, shall as soon as practicable upon demand, deliver to the Transferor all Records in its possession which evidence or relate to indebtedness of an Obligor which is not a Receivable. (c) On or before 105 days after the end of each fiscal year of the -38- Master Servicer, beginning with the fiscal year ending December 31, 1995, the Master Servicer shall cause a firm of independent public accountants (who may also render other services to the Master Servicer or the Transferor) to furnish a report to the Company to the effect that they have (i) compared the information contained in the Investor Reports delivered during such fiscal year with the information contained in the Master Servicer's and the Sellers' records and computer systems for such period, and that, on the basis of such examination and comparison, such firm is of the opinion that the information contained in the Investor Reports reconciles with the information contained in the Master Servicer's and the Sellers' records and computer systems and (ii) verified that a random sample of the Receivables treated by the Master Servicer as Eligible Receivables in fact satisfied the requirements of clauses (ii), (v), (ix) and (xiv) of the definition thereof contained herein, except, in each case for (a) such exceptions as such firm shall believe to be immaterial (which exceptions need not be enumerated) and (b) such other exceptions as shall be set forth in such statement; provided, however, that the Master Servicer's internal auditors may perform the verification specified in clause (ii) of this Section if such verification is confirmed by a firm of independent accountants. (d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Article VI, the Master Servicer, if not the Transferor, shall have no obligation to collect, enforce or take any other action described in this Article VI with respect to any Receivable that is not included in the Transferred Interest other than to deliver to the Transferor the Collections and documents with respect to any such Receivable as described in Section 6.2(b). SECTION VI.3. Rights After Designation of New Master Servicer.

SECTION VI.4. Responsibilities of the Transferor. Anything herein to ---------------------------------- the contrary notwithstanding, the Transferor shall (i) perform all of its obligations under the Contracts related to the Receivables to the same extent as if interests in such Receivables had not been sold hereunder and the exercise by the Company of its rights hereunder shall not relieve the Transferor from such obligations and (ii) pay when due any taxes, including without limitation, any sales taxes payable in connection with the Receivables and their creation and satisfaction.
