Any proposal for a Financing of the collateral delivered during the Deal Term, whether or not through FundRE’s site, and accepted at any time, in any form and with such modifications as shall be acceptable to the user, shall entitle FundRE to receive the Transaction Fee (as defined below), upon the closing of such Financing, with closing being defined for all purposes hereunder as the user entering into definitive documentation for the Financing (e.g., loan agreement, financing agreement or note issuance facility).  If any such Financing does not close due to the user’s default, failure to comply with any heads of terms or failure to act in good faith, FundRE shall be entitled to the Transaction Fee.

Transaction Fees

In the absence of a Service Order, User being a sponsor, shall pay to FundRE the fees set forth below. The compensation shall be in an amount equal to the following thresholds of the maximum committed amount of Financing (the “Transaction Fee”), (plus, where applicable, VAT) in the currency of the loan.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Transaction Fee shall still be payable in the event that:

  1. a company owning or directly or indirectly controlling the Collateral or shares or units in a special purpose vehicle, unit trust, or other group company owning the Collateral enters into the Financing; or
  2. any of your Affiliates (as defined in the General Terms) enters into the Financing.
