-iv- AMENDED AND RESTATED RECEIVABLES TRANSFER AGREEMENT AMENDED AND RESTATED RECEIVABLES TRANSFER AGREEMENT, dated as of March 31, 1997, among IKON FUNDING, INC., a Delaware corporation (the "Transferor"), as ---------- transferor, IKON CAPITAL, INC. (formerly Alco Capital Resource, Inc.), a Delaware corporation ("IKON Capital"), as initial Servicer (as defined herein), ------------ TWIN TOWERS INC., a Delaware corporation (the "Transferee"), as transferee, and ---------- DEUTSCHE BANK AG, a banking corporation organized under the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany ("Deutsche Bank"), acting through its NEW YORK BRANCH ------------- ("DBNY"), as agent for the Transferee (in such capacity, the "Agent"). Unless ---- ----- otherwise indicated, capitalized terms used in this Agreement are defined in Appendix A. - ---------- Background ---------- 1. IKON Capital, Transferee and the Agent entered into a Receivables Transfer Agreement, dated as of September 23, 1994 (as heretofore amended, the "Original Receivables Agreement"). ------------------------------ 2. Transferor, IKON Capital, Transferee and the Agent desire to amend and restate the Original Receivables Agreement in its entirety as set forth herein in order to, among other things, provide for the substitution of IKON Funding, Inc., as Transferor. 3. The Transferor has, and expects to have, Pool Receivables in which the Transferor intends to transfer an undivided interest. The Transferor has requested the Transferee, and the Transferee has agreed, subject to the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, to acquire from the Transferor such undivided interest, herein referred to as the Transferee's Interest, in one or more Transfers from time to time during the Reinvestment Period. 4. The Transferor and the Transferee also desire that, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, certain of the daily Collections in respect of the Transferee's Interest be reinvested in Pool Receivables so that the Transferee may maintain its Transferee's Investment fully invested in uncollected Pool Receivables. 5. The Transferee expects generally to fund its Transfers and Reinvestments through the issuance of Commercial Paper Notes. The Transferee has entered into a Liquidity Agreement providing for the making by the Liquidity Banks of loans secured by the Transferee's Interest in the event the Transferee is unable to fund its Transfers or Reinvestments pursuant to this Agreement by the issuance of Commercial Paper Notes or otherwise prefers to fund such Transfers or Reinvestments under the Liquidity Agreement rather than by the issuance of Commercial Paper Notes, or is unable to pay such Commercial Paper Notes at maturity from its share of collections on Pool Receivables. The Transferee has also entered into an Enhancement Agreement with the Enhancement Bank providing for the issuance of a letter of credit to a trustee for the holders of Commercial Paper Notes, and for the making of loans to the Transferee, to provide funds for the payment of Commercial Paper Notes in the circumstances described above when funding is not available under the Liquidity Agreement. 6. The Transferee has appointed DBNY as its agent to perform certain administrative duties for the Transferee, including, among other things, the arrangement of the transactions provided for hereunder, the administration of the funding of such transactions and the making of certain determinations hereunder and in connection herewith. NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual agreements herein contained, the parties hereto hereby amend and restate the Original Receivables Agreement in its entirety and hereby agree as follows: ARTICLE I THE COMMITMENT SECTION 1.01. Commitment. On the terms and subject to the conditions set ---------- forth in this Agreement (including Article V): --------- (a) Transfers. Pursuant to Section 1.03, from time to time during --------- ------------ the Reinvestment Period, upon request by the Transferor, the Transferee shall acquire from the Transferor, in one or more transactions, an undivided interest in the Pool Receivables and Related Property. Each of the initial acquisitions of the Transferee's Interest hereunder and each subsequent acquisition increasing the Transferee's Interest is herein called a "Transfer". -------- (b) Reinvestments. Pursuant to Section 3.01, during the Reinvestment ------------- ------------ Period, the Transferee shall permit the Servicer to cause certain of the Collections in respect of the Transferee's Interest to be paid to Transferor for reinvestment in the Pool Receivables and Related Property. Each such payment is herein called a "Reinvestment". ------------ The Transferee's obligation to make such Transfers and Reinvestments is herein called the "Commitment". ---------- SECTION 1.02. Limits on Commitment. Under no circumstances shall the -------------------- Transferee accept any Transfer to the extent that, after giving effect to such Transfer: (a) the Transferee's Investment would exceed the Maximum Investment; or (b) the Unadjusted Transferee's Percentage would exceed the Maximum Percentage. SECTION 1.03. Transfer Procedure. (a) Transfer Request. Each Transfer from ------------------ ---------------- the Transferor by the Transferee shall be made on written request by the Transferor to the Transferee and the Agent, substantially in the form of Exhibit 1.03 (a "Transfer Request"), received by the Agent not later than 11:00 - ------------ ---------------- a.m. (New York City time) on the second Business Day preceding the date of such proposed Transfer. Each such request shall specify the desired amount and date of such Transfer. (b) Amount of Transfer Price. The amount of the transfer price paid by the ------------------------ Transferee for each Transfer shall be equal to the lesser of (x) the amount proposed by the Transferor pursuant to Section 1.03(a) and (y) the maximum --------------- amount permitted under Section 1.02. ------------ (c) Funding of Transfer. On the date of each Transfer, the Transferee ------------------- shall, upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions set forth in Article V, --------- make available to the Agent in immediately available funds, at its office at 31 West 52nd Street, New York, New York 10019, the amount of the transfer price to be paid for such Transfer (determined pursuant to Section 1.03(b)) and after --------------- receipt by the Agent of such funds, the Agent will make such funds immediately available to the Transferor at such office. SECTION 1.04. Commitment Termination Date. (a) The "Commitment Termination --------------------------- ---------------------- Date" shall be the earlier to occur of (i) March 30, 1998 (herein, as the same - ---- may be extended, called the "Scheduled Commitment Termination Date"), and ------------------------------------- (ii) the date of termination of the Commitment pursuant to Section 1.04(c), 1.05 --------------- ---- or 10.02. ----- (b) The Scheduled Commitment Termination Date may be extended from time to time by delivery of a written request for such extension to the Transferee and the Agent not less than 60 days prior to the then Scheduled Commitment Termination Date. Within 30 days prior to the then Scheduled Commitment Termination Date, the Transferee and the Agent shall notify the Transferor as to whether they have given their consent to such extension (which consent may be given or withheld by either such party in its sole discretion). As a condition to any such extension, the Transferor and the Servicer shall deliver such certificates, opinions of counsel or other documents as the Transferee or the Agent may require. If such extension is approved, the Scheduled Commitment Termination Date shall be extended for 364 days from the effective date of such consent. (c) The Commitment shall terminate, and the Transferee shall have no obligation to accept any further Transfers or make any further Reinvestments hereunder, on the scheduled date of termination of either (A) the Liquidity Banks' commitments under the Liquidity Agreement or (B) the Enhancement Bank's commitment under the Enhancement Agreement. The Transferee agrees to give the Transferor at least 30 days' prior written notice of the termination of the Commitment pursuant to the foregoing sentence, but no failure to give or delay in giving such notice shall prevent or delay such termination. SECTION 1.05. Voluntary Termination of Commitment or Reduction of Maximum ----------------------------------------------------------- Investment. The Transferor may, upon at least ten Business Days' notice to the - ---------- Agent, terminate the Commitment in whole or reduce in part the unused portion of the Maximum Investment; provided, however, that (a) each partial reduction shall -------- ------- be in an amount equal to $5,000,000 or an integral multiple thereof and (b) after giving effect to such reduction, the remaining Maximum Investment will not be less than $25,000,000. ARTICLE II TRANSFEREE'S INTEREST SECTION 2.01. Assignment of Transferee's Interest. The Transferor hereby ----------------------------------- assigns and transfers to the Transferee, effective on and as of the date of the initial Transfer hereunder and, with respect to any increase in the Transferee's Interest effected by an additional Transfer hereunder, on the date of such additional Transfer, an undivided ownership interest, in a percentage equal to the Transferee's Percentage as determined from time to time in accordance with Section 2.02, in all Pool Receivables and Related Property, whether now existing - ------------ or hereafter arising or acquired by the Transferor from time to time. Such undivided ownership interest as in effect from time to time is herein called the "Transferee's Interest". --------------------- SECTION 2.02. Transferee's Percentage. The Transferee's Interest shall be ----------------------- in a percentage (the "Transferee's Percentage") ----------------------- equal at any time to the quotient obtained by dividing (a) the sum of (i) the Transferee's Investment, (ii) the Discount Factor, (iii) the Default and Dilution Reserve and (iv) the Servicer's Fee Reserve (such sum being herein sometimes called the "Transferee's ------------ Allocation"), by ---------- -- (b) the Net Pool Balance, as most recently computed in accordance with this Section 2.02 (such quotient, ------------ expressed as a percentage, before giving effect to the following provison, being -------- the "Unadjusted Transferee's Percentage"); provided, however, ---------------------------------- -------- ------- (1) the Transferee's Percentage shall not be greater than 100%; (2) during the Pay Out Period, the Transferee's Percentage shall be the greater of (x) the Transferee's Percentage in effect immediately before the commencement of the Pay Out Period and (y) the Transferee's Percentage as otherwise determined in accordance with this Section 2.02; and ------------ (3) the Transferee's Percentage shall become zero at such time as (A) the Transferee shall have received the accrued Earned Discount, shall have recovered the Transferee's Investment and shall have received all other amounts payable to the Transferee pursuant to this Agreement and (B) the Servicer shall have received the accrued Servicer's Fee. The Transferee's Percentage shall initially be computed by the Servicer as of the opening of business of the Servicer on the date of each Transfer, as of the most recent Month End Date, and shall be recomputed in each Periodic Report and each Pay Out Statement; provided, however, the Agent may from time to time -------- ------- request the Servicer to deliver a Periodic Report for the purpose of recalculating the Transferee's Percentage, and the Servicer shall deliver such Periodic Report within 10 Business Days after its receipt of such request. The Transferee's Percentage shall remain constant from the time as of which any such computation or recomputation is made until the time as of which the next such recomputation, if any, shall be made. SECTION 2.03. Rate Tranches; Selection of Yield Periods. (a) From time to ----------------------------------------- time, for purposes of determining the Yield Periods applicable to different portions of the Transferee's Interest, and of calculating the Earned Discount and Servicer's Fee with respect thereto, the Agent shall allocate the Transferee's Interest to one or more tranches (each a "Rate Tranche"), each ------------ representing a portion of the Transferee's Investment (with respect to each Rate Tranche, the "Transferee's Tranche Investment"). At any time, each Rate Tranche ------------------------------- shall have only one Yield Period and one Transferee Rate applicable for purposes of calculating Earned Discount, and shall be funded by (i) an issue of Commercial Paper Notes, (ii) a Funding Advance, (iii) a borrowing of Liquidity Loans funded by the Liquidity Banks ratably and having the same Yield Period, or (iv) an Enhancement Draw, but not by more than one of the foregoing at the same time. (b) The Agent shall select the duration of the initial, and each subsequent, Yield Period for each Rate Tranche in its discretion; provided that, -------- so long as no Termination Event shall have occurred and be continuing, the Agent shall use reasonable efforts, taking into account market conditions, to accommodate the Transferor's preferences. (c) From time to time the Agent shall notify the Servicer of the number of Rate Tranches, the Transferee's Tranche Investment of each Rate Tranche, the Transferee Rate for such Rate Tranche and the duration of the current Yield Period selected by it for each Rate Tranche. ARTICLE III SETTLEMENT SECTION 3.01. Non-Pay Out Settlement Procedures for Collections. (a) Daily ------------------------------------------------- ----- Procedure. On each day during the Reinvestment Period, the Servicer shall deem - --------- an amount equal to the Transferee's Share of Collections of Pool Receivables received or deemed received on such day to be received in respect of the Transferee's Interest, and, out of the Transferee's Share of such Collections, shall: (i) hold in trust for the benefit of the Transferee an amount equal to (A) the aggregate of the aggregate Earned Discount and Servicer's Fee accrued through such day, less (B) the amount, if any, theretofore set ---- aside and then so held for the benefit of the Transferee in respect of such Earned Discount and Servicer's Fee; (ii) set aside and hold in trust for the Transferee an amount equal to the excess, if any, of (A) the greatest of (I) if the Transferor shall have elected to reduce the Transferee's Investment under Section 3.04, the amount of the ------------ proposed reduction, (II) if the Transferee's Investment shall exceed the Maximum Investment, the amount of such excess, (III) if the Unadjusted Transferee's Percentage shall exceed the Maximum Percentage, an amount equal to the minimum reduction of the Transferee's Investment which (based on the Transferee Rates currently in effect, and assuming that such reduction will be applied to reduce the Transferee's Tranche Investments of the Rate Tranches having the shortest remaining Yield Periods first) would result in the Transferee's Percentage being no greater than the Maximum Percentage, and (IV) if any of the conditions precedent to Reinvestment set forth in Section 5.02 shall not be met, the Transferee's ------------ Investment, over ---- (B) the aggregate of the amounts theretofore set aside and then so held for the benefit of the Transferee pursuant to this clause (ii); and ----------- (iii) subject to Section 5.02, pay the remainder, if any, of such ------------ Collections to the Transferor for application to Reinvestment, for the benefit of the Transferee, in the Transferee's Interest in accordance with Section 1.01(b). --------------- The Servicer shall first, apply the Transferor's Share of such Collections to ----- any other amounts (other than Earned Discount and Transferee's Investment) then due to Transferee or the Agent and second, pay any remaining portion of the ------ Transferor's Share of such Collections to the Transferor. (b) Settlement Date Procedure. Prior to the Pay Out Period, on each ------------------------- Settlement Date, the Servicer shall deposit to the Agent's Account: (i) out of the amounts set aside pursuant to clause (i) of ---------- Section 3.01(a), an amount equal to the Earned Discount and Servicer's Fee --------------- accrued during the related Yield Period with respect to the related Rate Tranche; and (ii) out of the amount, if any, set aside pursuant to clause (ii) of ----------- Section 3.01(a) and not theretofore --------------- reinvested in accordance with Section 3.01(d) or deposited to the Agent's --------------- Account pursuant to this Section 3.01(b), an amount equal to the lesser of --------------- such amount and the Transferee's Tranche Investment of the related Rate Tranche; provided, however, that if the Agent gives its consent (which consent may be - -------- ------- revoked at any time), the Servicer may retain amounts which would otherwise be deposited in respect of Servicer's Fee, in which case no distribution shall be made in respect of Servicer's Fee under clause (c) below. ---------- In addition, if, on such Settlement Date, after reducing the Transferee's Tranche Investment of the related Rate Tranche by the amount deposited pursuant to clause (ii) above, the Transferee's Investment would be greater than the ----------- Maximum Investment or the Unadjusted Transferee's Percentage would be greater than the Maximum Percentage, then the Transferor shall pay to the Servicer, and the Servicer shall deposit to the Agent's Account, an amount equal to the least of (x) the minimum reduction of the Transferee's Investment which would result in the Unadjusted Transferee's Investment not exceeding the Maximum Investment and the Unadjusted Transferee's Percentage not exceeding the Maximum Percentage, (y) the Transferee's Tranche Investment of the related Rate Tranche and (z) the Transferor's Collection Amount. (c) Order of Application. Upon receipt by the Agent of funds deposited -------------------- pursuant to subsection (b) on a Settlement Date for any Rate Tranche, the Agent -------------- shall distribute them to the Persons, for the purposes and in the order of priority set forth below: (i) to the Transferee in payment of the accrued and unpaid Earned Discount for such Rate Tranche; (ii) to the Servicer in payment of the accrued and unpaid Servicer's Fee payable with respect to such Rate Tranche; and (iii) to the Transferee in reduction of the Transferee's Tranche Investment of such Rate Tranche. (d) Unreinvested Collections. During the Reinvestment Period, if on any ------------------------ date the amount of Collections theretofore set aside and then held by the Servicer for the benefit of the Transferee pursuant to clause (ii) of ----------- Section 3.01(a) shall exceed the maximum amount then required to be set aside - --------------- and so held pursuant to such clause (ii), then, subject to the applicable ----------- conditions precedent set forth in Section 5.02, the Servicer shall pay to the ------------ Transferor the amount of such excess Collections, for application to Reinvestment in accordance with Section 1.01(b). --------------- To the extent and for so long as such Collections may not be so reinvested, the Servicer shall hold such Collections in trust for the benefit of the Transferee in a separate deposit account containing only such Collections and no other funds. On each Settlement Date with respect to any Rate Tranche, the Servicer shall pay to the Agent for the account of the Transferee, in reduction of the Transferee's Investment, the amount of Collections then held in trust pursuant to the next preceding sentence or, if less, the Transferee's Tranche Investment of such Rate Tranche; any such amounts remaining after such application shall continue to be held in trust pursuant to this paragraph (d) and shall be applied ------------- on the next successive Settlement Dates until such amount has been reduced to zero. The Transferee's Investment shall not be deemed reduced by any amount held in trust pursuant to this subsection (d) unless and until, and then only to the -------------- extent that, such amount is finally paid to the Agent in accordance with the next preceding sentence. SECTION 3.02. Pay Out Settlement Procedures for Collections. (a) Daily --------------------------------------------- ----- Procedure. During the Pay Out Period, on each day, the Servicer shall (i) set - --------- aside and hold in trust for the Transferee the Transferee's Share of the Collections of Pool Receivables received by the Servicer, and (ii) first, apply ----- the Transferor's Share of such Collections to any other amounts (other than Earned Discount and Transferee's Investment) then due to Transferee or the Agent and second, pay any remaining portion of the Transferor's Share of such ------ Collections to the Transferor. (b) Settlement Date Procedure. During the Pay Out Period, on each ------------------------- Settlement Date for any Rate Tranche, subject to Section 3.02(d), the Servicer --------------- shall deposit to the Agent's Account the amounts set aside pursuant to Section 3.02(a), but not to exceed the sum of (i) the accrued and unpaid Earned - --------------- Discount with respect to such Rate Tranche, (ii) the Transferee's Tranche Investment of such Rate Tranche, (iii) the aggregate of other amounts (other than the Transferee's Investment, Earned Discount and Servicer's Fee) owed hereunder by the Transferor to the Transferee or the Agent, and (iv) the accrued Servicer's Fee payable with respect to such Rate Tranche. Any amounts in excess of the amount required to be deposited in the Agent's Account pursuant to the previous sentence shall continue to be set aside and held in trust by the Servicer for application on the next succeeding Settlement Date(s). (c) Order of Application. Upon receipt of funds deposited to the Agent's -------------------- account pursuant to Section 3.02(b), subject to Section 3.02(d), the Agent shall --------------- --------------- distribute them to the Persons, for the purposes and in the order of priority set forth below: (i) to the Transferee in payment of the accrued and unpaid Earned Discount for such Rate Tranche; (ii) if the Servicer is a Person other than IKON Capital or an Affiliate of IKON Capital, to the Servicer in payment of the accrued and unpaid Servicer's Fee with respect to such Rate Tranche; (iii) to the Transferee in reduction of the Transferee's Tranche Investment with respect to such Rate Tranche; (iv) to the Transferee or the Agent (as the case may be) in payment of any other amounts owed by the Transferor hereunder to the Transferee or the Agent (other than the Transferee's Investment, Earned Discount and Servicer's Fee); and (v) to the Servicer in payment of the accrued Servicer's Fee payable with respect to such Rate Tranche, to the extent not paid pursuant to clause (ii) above. ----------- (d) Priorities in Event of Funding Advances, Liquidity Loans or ----------------------------------------------------------- Enhancement Draw.
