Appointment of Owner Trustee.

 The Depositor hereby reconfirms the appointment of the Trust Company as trustee of the Trust effective as of May 5, 2006, to have all the rights, powers and duties set forth herein, and the Trust Company hereby reconfirms the acceptance of such appointment as of such date.

Capital Contribution of Initial Trust Estate.

 The Depositor previously sold, assigned, transferred, conveyed and set over to the Owner Trustee, as of May 5, 2006, the sum of $1.  The Owner Trustee hereby acknowledges receipt in trust from the Depositor, as of May 5, 2006, of the foregoing contribution, which constituted the initial Trust Estate (prior to giving effect to the conveyances described in the Sale Agreement, dated as of May 1, 2006, by and between BXG Timeshare Trust I and the Depositor, as amended from time to time) and was deposited in the Certificate Distribution Account.  The Depositor paid and shall pay organizational expenses of the Trust as they arose or may arise or shall, upon the request of the Owner Trustee, promptly reimburse the Owner Trustee for any such expenses paid by the Owner Trustee.  The Depositor may, but is not required to, make further cash contributions to BXG Timeshare Trust I in furtherance of expenses of BXG Timeshare Trust I (including, without limitation, purchasing cap agreements and depositing funds sufficient to cover the Post-Redemption Monthly Fee).

powers and duties set forth herein and in the Statutory Trust Statute for the sole purpose and to the extent necessary to accomplish the purpose of the Trust as set forth in the introductory sentence of Section 2.03(a) hereof.

Section 2.02. Liability of Depositor.

(a) Pursuant to Section 3803(a) of the Statutory Trust Statute, the Depositor shall be liable directly to and will indemnify any injured party or any other creditor of the Trust for all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses of the Trust to the extent that the Depositor would be liable if the Trust were a partnership under the Delaware Revised Uniform Limited Partnership Act in which the Depositor were a general partner; provided,  however, that neither the Depositor nor the Trust Owner shall under any circumstances be liable for any losses incurred by a Noteholder in the capacity of an investor in the Notes.  In addition, any third party creditors of the Trust (other than in connection with the obligations described in the immediately preceding sentence for which the Depositor and the Trust Owner shall not be liable) shall be deemed third party beneficiaries of the Depositor’s obligations under this paragraph.  The obligations of the Depositor under this paragraph shall be evidenced by the Residual Interest Certificate described in Section 3.05 hereof.

(b) The Trust Owner, solely by virtue of its being the Certificateholder of the Trust Certificate, shall not have any personal liability for any liability or obligation of the Trust.

Neither the Trust Owner nor the Residual Interest Owner shall have legal title to any part of the Trust Estate or any interest in specific property comprising the Trust Estate.  No transfer by operation of law or otherwise of any interest of the Trust Owner or the Residual Interest Owner shall operate to terminate this Agreement or the Trust hereunder or entitle any transferee to any accounting or to the transfer to it of any part of the Trust Estate.  No creditor of the Trust Owner or the Residual Interest Owner shall have any right to obtain possession of, or otherwise exercise legal or equitable remedies with respect to any property of the Trust.  The Trust Owner’s beneficial non‑economic interest in the Trust shall be personal property notwithstanding the nature of any property of the Trust.

5


 

 

Situs of Trust.

 The Trust will be located and administered in the State of Delaware.  All bank accounts maintained by the Owner Trustee on behalf of the Trust shall be located in the State of Florida or the State of Delaware.  The Trust shall not have any employees in any state other than Delaware; provided,  however, that nothing herein shall restrict or prohibit the Owner Trustee from having employees within or without the State of Delaware.  Payments will be received by the Trust only in Delaware and payments will be made by the Trust only from Delaware.  The only office of the Trust will be at the Owner Trustee Corporate Trust Office.

Section 2.04. Income Tax Treatment.

(a) It is the intention of the parties hereto that, for U.S. federal and applicable state and local income tax purposes, the Trust will not be treated as a taxable mortgage pool or an association or publicly traded partnership taxable as a corporation.  It is the intention of the parties hereto that the Trust be disregarded as an entity separate from the sole Residual Interest Owner for federal income tax purposes pursuant to Treasury Regulation Section 301.7701-3(b)(1)(ii).  The Trust Certificate must at all times be held by either the Trust Owner or its transferee as sole owner and does not represent an economic interest in the Trust.  The Residual Interest Certificate constitutes the entire residual economic interest in the Trust (after payments to the Noteholders in accordance with the terms of the Transaction Documents) and must at all times be held by the Depositor or its transferee.  The parties hereto agree not to take any action inconsistent with such intended federal and applicable state and local income tax treatment.  Because for federal income tax purposes, the Trust will be disregarded as an entity separate from the Residual Interest Owner, items of income, gain, loss and deduction of the Trust for any

8


 

 

month as determined for federal income tax purposes shall be allocated entirely to the Depositor (or, if the Residual Interest Certificate is transferred, the subsequent holder of the Residual Interest Certificate) as the sole owner of the residual economic interest in the Trust. 

Covenants of the Depositor and Trust Owner.

 The Depositor and the Trust Owner agree and covenant (severally, as applicable) that during the term of this Agreement, and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, that:

(b) in the event that any litigation with claims in excess of $25,000 to which the Depositor is a party which shall be reasonably likely to result in a material judgment against the Depositor that the Depositor will not be able to satisfy shall be commenced, during the period beginning immediately following the commencement of such litigation and continuing until such litigation is dismissed or otherwise terminated (and, if such litigation has resulted in a final judgment against the Depositor, such judgment has been satisfied), the Depositor shall not pay any dividend to its Affiliates, or make any distribution on or in respect of its capital stock to its Affiliates, or repay the principal amount of any indebtedness of the Depositor held by its Affiliates, unless after giving effect to such payment, distribution or repayment, the Depositor’s liquid assets shall not be less than the amount of actual damages claimed in such litigation;

(c) neither the Depositor nor the Trust Owner shall, for any reason, institute proceedings for the Trust to be adjudicated as bankrupt or insolvent, or consent to the institution of bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings against the Trust, or file a petition seeking or consenting to reorganization or relief under any applicable federal or state law relating to the bankruptcy of the Trust, or consent to the appointment of a receiver, liquidator, assignee, trustee, sequestrator (or other similar official) of the Trust or a substantial part of the property of the Trust or cause or permit the Trust to make any assignment for the benefit of creditors, or admit in writing the inability of the Trust to pay its debts generally as they become due, or declare or effect a moratorium on the debt of the Trust or take any action in furtherance of any such action;

(d) neither the Depositor nor the Trust Owner shall create, incur or suffer to exist any indebtedness or engage in any business, except, in each case, as permitted by its certificate of incorporation, by-laws and the Transaction Documents;

(e) it shall obtain from each other party to each Transaction Document to which it or the Trust is a party and each other agreement entered into on or after the date hereof to which it or the Trust is a party, an agreement by each such counterparty that prior to the occurrence of the event specified in Section 9.01(e) hereof such counterparty shall not institute against, or join any other Person in instituting against, it or the Trust, any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceedings or other similar proceedings under the laws of the United States or any state of the United States;

(f) it shall not, for any reason, withdraw or attempt to withdraw from this Agreement, dissolve, institute proceedings for it to be adjudicated a bankrupt or insolvent, or consent to the institution of bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings against it, or file a petition seeking or consenting to reorganization or relief under any applicable federal or state law relating to bankruptcy, or consent to the appointment of a receiver, liquidator, assignee, trustee, sequestrator

9


 

 

(or other similar official) of it or a substantial part of its property, or make any assignment for the benefit of creditors, or admit in writing its inability to pay its debts generally as they become due, or declare or effect a moratorium on its debt or take any action in furtherance of any such action; and

(g) it shall not transfer the Trust Certificate (in the case of the Trust Owner) or the Residual Interest Certificate (in the case of the Depositor) unless the transferee agrees that it shall comply with the provisions of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, paragraph (b) above, and, in the case of the Trust Owner, shall only transfer the Trust Certificate in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.01, and, in the case of the Depositor, shall only transfer the Residual Interest Certificate in accordance with Section 3.05.

Separateness of Trust.

 The Depositor, the Trust Owner and the Owner Trustee agree and covenant (severally, as applicable) that during the term of this Agreement, and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, that:

(h) The Trust shall maintain its chief executive office and a telephone number separate from that of any Controlling Entity (as hereinafter defined) and shall conspicuously identify such office as its office.

(i) The Trust shall maintain its financial statements, accounting records and other organization documents separate from those of any Controlling Entity or any other person or entity.

(j) The Trust shall prepare unaudited annual financial statements, and the Trust’s financial statements shall comply with generally accepted accounting principles (except as noted in such financial statements).

(k) The Trust shall maintain its own separate bank accounts and correct, complete and separate books of account.

(l) The Trust shall hold itself out to the public (including any Controlling Entity’s creditors) under the Trust’s own name and as a separate and distinct corporate entity.  The Trust’s name may not be used by any other Controlling Entity in the conduct of its business, nor may the Trust use the name of any other Controlling Entity in the conduct of its business.  The Trust must have a separate telephone number, stationery and other business forms.

(m) All customary formalities regarding the existence of the Trust shall be observed.

(n) All business transactions entered into by the Trust with any Controlling Entity shall be on such terms and conditions (including terms relating to amounts paid under such transactions) as would be generally available in comparable transactions if such business transactions were with an entity that was not a Controlling Entity and shall be approved by the Indenture Trustee.

10


 

 

(o) Except as provided in Section 2.03 hereof, the Trust shall not guarantee or assume or hold itself out or permit itself to be held out as having guaranteed or assumed any liabilities or obligations of a Controlling Entity or any other person or entity.

(a) The Trust shall dissolve upon written notice, which shall be provided by the Trust Owner to the Owner Trustee, only after the earlier of (i) the day on which the rights of all Notes to receive payments from the Issuer have terminated in accordance with the Indenture and final distribution of payments to the Residual Interest Certificates as required hereunder (the “Trust Termination Date”) and (ii) dissolution of the Trust in accordance with applicable laws.  After satisfaction of liabilities of the Trust as provided by applicable law, any money or other property held as part of the Trust Estate following such distribution shall be distributed to the Trust Owner.  The bankruptcy, liquidation, dissolution, termination, death or incapacity of the Trust Owner shall not (x) operate to terminate this Agreement or annul, dissolve or terminate the Trust, or (y) entitle the Trust Owner’s legal representatives or heirs to claim an accounting or to take any action or proceeding in any court for a partition or winding up of all or any part of the Trust or Trust Estate or (z) otherwise affect the rights, obligations and liabilities of the parties hereto.

(b) Except as provided in Section 9.0l(a) hereof, neither the Depositor nor any Certificateholder shall be entitled to revoke or terminate the Trust.

(c) Notice of any dissolution of the Trust, specifying the Payment Date upon which the Residual Interest Owner shall surrender its Residual Interest Certificate to the Trust Paying Agent for payment of the final distribution and cancellation, shall be given by the Owner Trustee by letter to the Certificateholder mailed within five Business Days of receipt of notice of termination from the Servicer, stating (i) the Payment Date upon or with respect to which final payment of the Residual Interest Certificate shall be made upon presentation and surrender of the Residual Interest Certificate at the office of the Trust Paying Agent therein designated, (ii) the amount of any such final payment and (iii) that the Record Date otherwise applicable to such Payment Date is not applicable, payments being made only upon presentation and surrender of the Residual Interest Certificate at the office of the Trust Paying Agent therein specified.  The Owner Trustee shall give such notice to the Certificate Registrar (if other than the Owner Trustee) and the Trust Paying Agent at the time such notice is given to the Residual Interest Owner.  Upon presentation and surrender of the Residual Interest Certificates, the Trust Paying Agent shall cause to be distributed to the Residual Interest Owner amounts distributable on such Payment Date pursuant to Section 5.02 hereof.

(d) In the event that the Residual Interest Owner shall not surrender its Residual Interest Certificate for cancellation within six months after the date specified in the above mentioned written notice, the Owner Trustee shall give a second written notice to such Residual Interest Owner to surrender its Residual Interest Certificate for cancellation and receive the final distribution with respect thereto.  If within one year after the second notice the Residual Interest Certificate shall not have been surrendered for cancellation, the Owner Trustee may take appropriate steps, or may appoint an agent to take appropriate steps, to contact the Residual Interest Owner concerning surrender of its Residual Interest Certificate, and the cost thereof shall be paid out of the funds and other assets that shall remain subject to this Agreement.  Any funds

Resignation or Removal of Owner Trustee.

 The Owner Trustee may at any time resign and be discharged from the trusts hereby created by giving 30 days prior written notice thereof to the Depositor and the Servicer and the Indenture Trustee.  Upon receiving such notice of resignation, the Depositor shall promptly appoint a successor Owner Trustee, which successor shall be an Eligible Owner Trustee, by written instrument, in duplicate, one copy of which instrument shall be delivered to the resigning Owner Trustee and one copy to the successor Owner Trustee.  If no successor Owner Trustee shall have been so appointed and shall have accepted appointment within 30 days after the giving of such notice of resignation, the resigning Owner Trustee may petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor Owner Trustee which shall be an Eligible Owner Trustee.

If at any time the Owner Trustee shall cease to be eligible in accordance with the provisions of Section 10.01 hereof and shall fail to resign after written request therefor by the Trust Owner, or if at any time the Owner Trustee shall be legally unable to act, or shall be adjudged bankrupt or insolvent, or a receiver of the Owner Trustee or of its property shall be appointed or any public officer shall take charge or control of the Owner Trustee or of its

28


 

 

property or affairs for the purpose of rehabilitation, conservation or liquidation, then the Indenture Trustee, may remove the Owner Trustee.  If the Indenture Trustee shall remove the Owner Trustee under the authority of the immediately preceding sentence, the Depositor shall promptly appoint a successor Owner Trustee which shall be an Eligible Owner Trustee by written instrument, in duplicate, one copy of which instrument shall be delivered to the outgoing Owner Trustee so removed and one copy to the successor Owner Trustee, and shall pay all fees owed to the outgoing Owner Trustee.

Any resignation or removal of the Owner Trustee and appointment of a successor Owner Trustee pursuant to any of the provisions of this Section shall not become effective until acceptance of appointment by the successor Owner Trustee pursuant to Section 10.03 hereof and payment of all fees and expenses owed to the outgoing Owner Trustee.

Successor Owner Trustee.

 Any successor Owner Trustee appointed pursuant to Section 10.02 hereof shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Indenture Trustee and the Depositor, and to its predecessor Owner Trustee an instrument accepting such appointment under this Agreement, and thereupon the resignation or removal of the predecessor Owner Trustee shall become effective, and such successor Owner Trustee, without any further act, deed or conveyance, shall become fully vested with all the rights, powers, duties and obligations of its predecessor under this Agreement, with like effect as if originally named as Owner Trustee.  The predecessor Owner Trustee shall upon payment of its fees and expenses deliver to the successor Owner Trustee all documents and statements and monies held by it under this Agreement; and the Depositor, Indenture Trustee and the predecessor Owner Trustee shall execute and deliver such instruments and do such other things as may reasonably be required for fully and certainly vesting and confirming in the successor Owner Trustee all such rights, powers, duties and obligations.

No successor Owner Trustee shall accept appointment as provided in this Section unless at the time of such acceptance such successor Owner Trustee shall be an Eligible Owner Trustee pursuant to Section 10.01 hereof.

Upon acceptance of appointment by a successor Owner Trustee pursuant to this Section, the Depositor shall mail notice thereof to the Certificateholders, the Indenture Trustee, the Funding Agents and the Noteholders.  If the Depositor shall fail to mail such notice within ten Business Days after acceptance of such appointment by the successor Owner Trustee, the successor Owner Trustee shall cause such notice to be mailed at the expense of the Depositor.

Merger or Consolidation of Owner Trustee.

 Any corporation into which the Owner Trustee may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated, or any corporation resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Owner Trustee shall be a party, or any corporation succeeding to all or substantially all of the corporate trust business of the Owner Trustee, shall be the successor of the Owner Trustee hereunder, without the execution or filing of any instrument or any further act on the part of any of the parties hereto, anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding; provided, that such corporation shall be eligible pursuant to Section 10.01 hereof.

29


 

 

Appointment of Co-Trustee or Separate Trustee.

 Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, at any time, for the purpose of meeting any legal requirements of any jurisdiction in which any part of the Trust Estate may at the time be located, the Owner Trustee shall have the power and shall execute and deliver all instruments to appoint one or more Persons approved by the Owner Trustee to act as co-trustee, jointly with the Owner Trustee, or as separate trustee or separate trustees, of all or any part of the Trust Estate, and to vest in such Person, in such capacity, such title to the Trust or any part thereof and, subject to the other provisions of this Section, such powers, duties, obligations, rights and trusts as the Owner Trustee may consider necessary or desirable.  No co-trustee or separate trustee under this Agreement shall be required to meet the terms of eligibility as a successor Owner Trustee pursuant to Section 10.01 hereof and no notice of the appointment of any co-trustee or separate trustee shall be required pursuant to Section 10.03 hereof.

Each separate trustee and co-trustee shall, to the extent permitted by law, be appointed and act subject to the following provisions and conditions:

(a) all rights, powers, duties and obligations conferred or imposed upon the Owner Trustee shall be conferred upon and exercised or performed by the Owner Trustee and such separate trustee or co-trustee jointly (it being understood that such separate trustee or co-trustee is not authorized to act separately without the Owner Trustee joining in such act), except to the extent that under any law of any jurisdiction in which any particular act or acts are to be performed, the Owner Trustee shall be incompetent or unqualified to perform such act or acts, in which event such rights, powers, duties and obligations (including the holding of title to the Trust Estate or any portion thereof in any such jurisdiction) shall be exercised and performed singly by such separate trustee or co-trustee, but solely at the direction of the Owner Trustee;

(b) no trustee under this Agreement shall be personally liable by reason of any such act or omission of any other trustee under this Agreement; and

(c) the Owner Trustee acting jointly may at any time accept the resignation of or remove any separate trustee or co-trustee.

Any notice, request or other writing given to the Owner Trustee shall be deemed to have been given to each of the then separate trustees and co-trustees, as effectively as if given to each of them.  Every instrument appointing any separate trustee or co-trustee shall refer to this Agreement and the conditions of this Article X.  Each separate trustee and co-trustee, upon its acceptance of the trusts conferred, shall be vested with the estates or property specified in its instrument of appointment, either jointly with the Owner Trustee or separately, as may be provided therein, subject to all the provisions of this Agreement, specifically including every provision of this Agreement relating to the conduct of, affecting the liability of or affording protection to, the Owner Trustee.  Each such instrument shall be filed with the Owner Trustee and a copy thereof given to the Depositor, the Indenture Trustee and the Funding Agents. 

Any separate trustee or co-trustee may at any time appoint the Owner Trustee as its agent or attorney-in-fact with full power and authority, to the extent not prohibited by law, to do any lawful act under or in respect of this Agreement on its behalf and in its name.  If any separate

30


 

 

trustee or co-trustee shall die, become incapable of acting, resign or be removed, all of its estates, properties, rights, remedies and trusts hall vest in and be exercised by the Owner Trustee, to the extent permitted by law, without the appointment of a new or successor co-trustee or separate trustee.

31


 

 

pool or an association or publicly traded partnership taxable as a corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes.

The Owner Trustee shall be entitled to receive, and shall be fully protected in relying upon, an Officer’s Certificate of the Trust Owner to the effect that the conditions to amendment have been satisfied.

to such Certificateholder pursuant to the Trust Agreement and the Indenture and the deposition of all property held as part of the Trust Estate.  The Servicer may at its option purchase the Trust Estate at the times and at the prices specified in the Indenture.
