NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual agreements herein contained, each party agrees as follows for the benefit of the other party, the Noteholders and each Interest Rate Hedge Provider:

(xi), (xii), (xiv) and (xv) above shall extend to such collateral types to the extent (and only to the extent) of the Issuer's rights therein, (C) the right of the Issuer to terminate, perform under or compel performance of the terms of a Container Related Agreement described in clause (xvii) above is subject to any restrictions set forth in that agreement and/or the Intercreditor Collateral Agreement, (D) no account, instrument, chattel paper or other obligation or property of any kind due from, owed by, or belonging to, a Sanctioned Person and (E) no Lease in which the Lessee is a Sanctioned Person, shall, in the case of clause (D) and (E), constitute Collateral.

 (ii)          the rights of Noteholders shall be exercised only through the Depositary and shall be limited to those established by law and agreements between such Noteholders and the Depositary and/or the Depositary Participants.  Unless and until Definitive Notes are issued, the Depositary will make book-entry transfers among the Depositary Participants and receive and transmit payments of principal of, and interest on, the Notes to such Depositary Participants; and
 
 (iii)         whenever this Indenture requires or permits actions to be taken based upon instructions or directions of Holders of Notes evidencing a specified percentage of the voting rights of a particular series, the Depositary shall be deemed to represent such percentage only to the extent that it has received instructions to such effect from Noteholders and/or Depositary Participants owning or representing, respectively, such required percentage of the beneficial interest in the Notes and has delivered such instruction to the Indenture Trustee.

(f)         Whenever a notice or other communication to the Noteholders is required under this Indenture, unless and until Definitive Notes have been issued to Noteholders, the Indenture Trustee shall give all such notices and communications to the Depositary.
 
39

(g)        The Indenture Trustee is hereby initially appointed as the Book-Entry Custodian and hereby agrees to act as such in accordance with the agreement that it has with the Depositary authorizing it to act as such.  The Book-Entry Custodian may, and, if it is no longer qualified to act as such, the Book-Entry Custodian shall, appoint, by written instrument delivered to the Issuer and the Depositary, any other transfer agent (including the Depositary or any successor Depositary) to act as Book-Entry Custodian under such conditions as the predecessor Book-Entry Custodian and the Depositary or any successor Depositary may prescribe, provided that the predecessor Book-Entry Custodian shall not be relieved of any of its duties or responsibilities by reason of any such appointment of other than the Depositary.  If the Indenture Trustee resigns or is removed in accordance with the terms hereof, the successor Indenture Trustee or, if it so elects, the Depositary shall immediately succeed to its predecessor’s duties as Book-Entry Custodian.  The Issuer shall have the right to inspect, and to obtain copies of, any Notes held as Book-Entry Notes by the Book-Entry Custodian.

(h)        The provisions of Section 205(i) shall apply to all transfers of Definitive Notes, if any, issued in respect of Ownership Interests in the Rule 144A Book-Entry Notes.

(j)          No transfer of any Note or interest therein shall be made unless that transfer is made pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act, and effective registration or qualification under applicable state securities laws, or is made in a transaction that does not require such registration or qualification.  If a transfer of any Definitive Note is to be made without registration under the Securities Act (other than in connection with the initial issuance thereof or a transfer thereof by the Depositary or one of its Affiliates), then the Note Registrar shall refuse to register such transfer unless it receives (and upon receipt, may conclusively rely upon) either:  (i) a certificate from such Noteholder substantially in the form attached as Exhibit C hereto or such other certification reasonably acceptable to the Indenture Trustee and a certificate from such Noteholder’s prospective transferee substantially in the form attached as Exhibit C hereto or such other certification reasonably acceptable to the Indenture Trustee; or (ii) an Opinion of Counsel satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee to the effect that such transfer may be made without registration under the Securities Act (which Opinion of Counsel shall not be an expense of the Issuer or any Affiliate thereof or of the Depositary, the Manager or Affiliate thereof, the Indenture Trustee or the Note Registrar in their respective capacities as such), together with the written certification(s) as to the facts surrounding such transfer from the Noteholder desiring to effect such transfer and/or such Noteholder’s prospective transferee on which such Opinion of Counsel is based.  If such a transfer of any interest in a Book-Entry Note is to be made without registration under the Securities Act, the transferor will be deemed to have made each of the representations and warranties set forth on Exhibit C hereto in respect of such interest as if it was evidenced by a Definitive Note and the transferee will be deemed to have made each of the representations and warranties set forth in Exhibit C hereto in respect of such interest as if it was evidenced by a Definitive Note.  None of the Depositary, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or the Note Registrar is obligated to register or qualify the Notes under the Securities Act or any other securities law or to take any action not otherwise required under this Indenture to permit the transfer of any Note or interest therein without registration or qualification.  Any Noteholder desiring to effect such a transfer shall, and does hereby agree to, indemnify the Depositary, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Note Registrar against any liability that may result if the transfer is not so exempt or is not made in accordance with such federal and state laws.

(a)        The Indenture Trustee shall keep at its Corporate Trust Office books for the registration and transfer of the Notes (the “Note Register”).  The Issuer hereby appoints the Indenture Trustee as its registrar (the “Note Registrar”) and transfer agent to keep such books and make such registrations and transfers as are hereinafter set forth in this Section 205 and also authorizes and directs the Indenture Trustee to provide a copy of such registration record to the Manager upon its request.  The names and addresses of the Holders of all Notes and all transfers of, and the names and addresses of, and the principal amounts (and stated interest) owing to, the transferee of, all Notes will be registered in such Note Register.  The Person in whose name any Note is registered shall be deemed and treated as the owner and Holder thereof for all purposes of this Indenture, and the Indenture Trustee and the Issuer shall not be affected by any notice or knowledge to the contrary.  If a Person other than the Indenture Trustee is appointed by the Issuer to maintain the Note Register, the Issuer will give the Indenture Trustee and each Administrative Agent prompt written notice of such appointment and of the location, and any change in the location, of the successor note registrar.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, so long as Wells Fargo Bank, National Association is acting as the Indenture Trustee, it shall also act as the Note Registrar.

(b)        Payments of principal, premium, if any, and interest on any Note shall be payable on each Payment Date only to the registered Holder thereof on the Record Date immediately preceding such Payment Date.  The principal of, premium, if any, and interest on each Note shall be payable at the Corporate Trust Office in immediately available funds in such coin or currency of the United States of America as at the time for payment shall be legal tender for the payment of public and private debts.  Except as set forth in any Supplement, all interest payable on the Notes shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months.  Notwithstanding the foregoing or any provision in any Note to the contrary, if so requested by the registered Holder of any Note by written notice to the Indenture Trustee, all amounts payable to such registered Holder may be paid either (i) by crediting the amount to be distributed to such registered Holder to an account maintained by such registered Holder with the Indenture Trustee or by transferring such amount by wire to such other bank in the United States, including a Federal Reserve Bank, as shall have been specified in such notice, for credit to the account of such registered Holder maintained at such bank, or (ii) by mailing a check to such address as such Holder shall have specified in such notice, in either case without any presentment or surrender of such Note to the Indenture Trustee (except in connection with the final payment on a Note in accordance with Section 207) at the Corporate Trust Office.

(c)        All payments on the Notes shall be paid to the Noteholders reflected in the Note Register as of the related Record Date by wire transfer of immediately available funds for receipt prior to 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the related Payment Date.  Any payments received by the Noteholders after 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on any day shall be considered to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day; provided, however, that if the Issuer has deposited the required funds with the Indenture Trustee by 1:00 p.m. (New York City time), on such date, then the Issuer, upon receipt by the Noteholders of such payment, shall be deemed to have made such payment at the time so required.  Notwithstanding the foregoing or any provision in any Note to the contrary, if so requested by the registered Noteholder by written notice to the Indenture Trustee, all amounts payable to such registered Noteholder may be paid by mailing on the related Payment Date a check to such address as such Noteholder shall have specified in such notice, in either case without any presentment or surrender of such Note (except in connection with the final payment on a Note in accordance with Section 207) to the Indenture Trustee at the Corporate Trust Office.

(d)        Upon surrender for registration of transfer of any Note at the Corporate Trust Office, the Issuer shall execute and the Indenture Trustee, upon written request, shall authenticate and deliver, in the name of the designated transferee or transferees, one or more new Notes of the same Series (and Class, if applicable), of any authorized denominations and of a like aggregate original principal amount.

(e)        All Notes issued upon any registration of transfer or exchange of Notes shall be the legal, valid and binding obligations of the Issuer, evidencing the same debt, and entitled to the same benefits under this Indenture and any Supplement, as the Notes surrendered upon such registration of transfer or exchange.

(f)         Every Note presented or surrendered for registration of transfer or for exchange shall (if so required by the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee) be duly endorsed, or be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee duly executed, by the Holder thereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing.

(g)        Any service charge, fees or expenses made or expense incurred by the Indenture Trustee for any such registration, discharge from registration or exchange referred to in this Section 205 shall be paid by the Noteholder.  The Indenture Trustee or the Issuer may require payment by the Holder of a sum sufficient to cover any tax expense or other governmental charge payable in connection therewith.

(h)        If Notes are issued or exchanged in definitive form under Section 202, such Notes will not be registered by the Indenture Trustee unless each prospective initial Noteholder acquiring a Note, each prospective transferee acquiring a Note and each prospective owner (or transferee thereof) of a beneficial interest in Notes (each, a “Prospective Owner”) acquiring such beneficial interest provides the Manager, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and any successor Manager with a written representation that the statement in either subsection (1) or (2) of Section 208 is an accurate representation as to all sources of funds to be used to pay the purchase price of the Notes.

(i)         No transfer of a Note shall be deemed effective unless (x) the transference of such Note is not to a Competitor and (y) the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of Section 5 of the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws are complied with, or such transfer is exempt from the registration and prospectus delivery requirements under said Securities Act and laws.  In the event that a transfer is to be made without registration or qualification, such Noteholder’s prospective transferee shall deliver to the Indenture Trustee an investment letter substantially in the form of Exhibit C hereto (the “Purchaser Letter”) or such other form or document as set forth in a Supplement to this Indenture.  Neither the Indenture Trustee nor the Issuer is under any obligation to register the Notes under the Securities Act or any other securities law or to bear any expense with respect to such registration by any other Person or monitor compliance of any transfer with the securities laws of the United States regulations promulgated in connection thereto or ERISA.

Section 206.       Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost and Stolen Notes.

(a)        If (i) any mutilated Note is surrendered to the Indenture Trustee, or the Indenture Trustee receives evidence to its satisfaction of the destruction, loss or theft of any Note, and (ii) there is delivered to the Indenture Trustee such security or indemnity as it and the Issuer may require to hold the Issuer, the Manager and the Indenture Trustee harmless, then the Issuer shall execute and the Indenture Trustee shall authenticate and deliver, in exchange for or in lieu of any such mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Note, a replacement Note of the same Series and maturity and of like terms as the mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Note; provided, however, that if any such destroyed, lost or stolen Note, but not a mutilated Note, shall have become, or within seven days shall be due and payable, the Issuer may pay such destroyed, lost or stolen Note when so due or payable instead of issuing a replacement Note.

(b)        If, after the delivery of such replacement Note, or payment of a destroyed, lost or stolen Note pursuant to the proviso to the preceding sentence, a bona fide purchaser of the original Note in lieu of which such replacement Note was issued presents for payment such original Note, the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to recover upon the security or indemnity provided therefor to the extent of any and all loss, damage, cost or expense incurred by the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee in connection therewith.

(c)        The Indenture Trustee and the Issuer may, for each new Note authenticated and delivered under the provisions of this Section 206, require the advance payment by the Noteholder of the expenses, including counsel fees, service charges and any tax or governmental charge which may be incurred by the Indenture Trustee or the Issuer.  Any Note issued under the provisions of this Section 206 in lieu of any Note alleged to be destroyed, mutilated, lost or stolen, shall be equally and proportionately entitled to the benefits of this Indenture with all other Notes of the same Series.  The provisions of this Section 206 are exclusive and shall preclude (to the extent lawful) all other rights and remedies with respect to the replacement or payment of mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen Notes.

Section 207.       Delivery, Retention and Cancellation of Notes.

Each Noteholder is required, and hereby agrees, to return to the Indenture Trustee on or prior to the Legal Final Payment Date (or, if earlier, the date on which the Unpaid Principal Balance of, and accrued interest and other amounts related to, the applicable Series of Notes shall be paid in full (for example, pursuant to a refinancing of the Notes of the applicable Series or pursuant to the exercise of remedies under Article VIII hereof)), any Note on which the final payment due thereon will be made for the related Series of Notes.  Any such Note as to which the Indenture Trustee has made or holds the final payment thereon shall be deemed canceled and shall no longer be Outstanding for any purpose of this Indenture, whether or not such Note is ever returned to the Indenture Trustee.  Matured Notes delivered upon final payment to the Indenture Trustee and any Notes transferred or exchanged for other Notes shall be canceled and disposed of by the Indenture Trustee in accordance with its policy of disposal and the Indenture Trustee shall promptly deliver to the Issuer such canceled Notes upon reasonable prior written request.  If the Indenture Trustee shall acquire, for its own account, any of the Notes, such acquisition shall not operate as a redemption or satisfaction of the indebtedness represented by such Notes.  If the Issuer shall acquire any of the Notes, such acquisition shall operate as a redemption or satisfaction of the indebtedness represented by such Notes.  Notes which have been canceled by the Indenture Trustee shall be deemed paid and discharged for all purposes under this Indenture.

Section 804.       Remedies.

(a)        If a Trust Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, or a Series Specific Event of Default shall occur and be continuing for all Series of Notes then Outstanding, the Indenture Trustee by such officer or agent as it may appoint, shall notify each Noteholder, each Administrative Agent and the applicable Rating Agencies of such Trust Event of Default or the existence of a Series Specific Event of Default for all Series of Notes then Outstanding, as the case may be, and shall, if instructed by the Requisite Global Majority, do any of the following:

(i)        Institute any Proceedings, in its own name and as trustee of an express trust, for the collection of all amounts then due and payable on the Notes of all Series or under the Indenture or the related Supplement with respect thereto, whether by declaration or otherwise, enforce any judgment obtained, and collect from the Collateral and any other assets of the Issuer any monies adjudged due;
 
(ii)       Subject to the quiet enjoyment rights of any Lessee of a Managed Container, sell (including any sale made in accordance with Section 816 hereof), hold or lease the Terminated Containers or any portion thereof or rights or interest therein, at one or more public or private transactions conducted in any manner permitted by law;
 
(iii)      Institute any Proceedings from time to time for the complete or partial foreclosure of the Lien created by this Indenture with respect to the Managed Containers and Leases; provided that any Managed Containers and Leases sold in any such foreclosure sale shall be subject to the rights of (i) any Lessee under any Lease of such Managed Containers and (ii) the rights of the Manager under the Management Agreement with respect to any Managed Container that is not a Terminated Container.  It shall be a condition to any such sale that the purchaser of such sold Managed Containers and Lease shall enter into a management agreement with CAL with respect to any sold Managed Container that is not a Terminated Container, which management agreement shall be in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to CAL (provided that if such purchaser is already party to a management agreement with CAL, such management agreement shall be deemed to be satisfactory to CAL for purposes of this sentence);
 
75

(iv)      Institute such other appropriate Proceedings to protect and enforce any other rights, whether for the specific enforcement of any covenant or agreement in this Indenture or in aid of the exercise of any power granted therein, or to enforce any other proper remedy;
 
(v)       Exercise any remedies of a secured party under the UCC or any applicable law and take any other appropriate action to protect and enforce the rights and remedies of the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders hereunder;
 
(vi)      Appoint a receiver or a manager over the Issuer or its assets; and
 
(vii)     If a Trust Manager Default is then continuing, terminate the Management Agreement in accordance with its provisions.

(b)        In the event that Control Parties for one or more Series of Notes consent to or direct a sale of Collateral (each such Series, a “Liquidating Series”) but the Requisite Global Majority does not consent to such sale of Collateral, a portion of the Managed Containers and related Leases pledged as Collateral pursuant to the Indenture (selected as set forth in Section 804(c) below) may be sold (i) at the direction of the Control Party for such Liquidating Series, if the amount of net proceeds realized from such sale will be sufficient to repay all principal, interest and other amounts owed to each Class of Notes that is the Control Party for each such Liquidating Series or (ii) at all times not covered by clause (i), at the direction of the Noteholders of such Liquidating Series representing in aggregate more than 66 2/3% of the then Unpaid Principal Balance of the Notes of such Liquidating Series.  The net proceeds of such sale of Managed Containers and Leases shall be applied to the payment of the Notes of each Liquidating Series in accordance with the terms of the Supplement for such Liquidating Series.  The value of the Managed Containers and Leases to be sold in respect of the Liquidating Series will be equal to the sum, for each Liquidating Series, of the product of (i) the Asset Allocation Percentage of such Liquidating Series and (ii) the then Aggregate Net Book Value.  If the proceeds of any partial sale of Collateral is not sufficient to repay in full the Unpaid Principal Balance of, and accrued interest on, the Notes of such Liquidating Series, the Notes of such Liquidating Series shall remain Outstanding and shall be entitled, after payments are made to all non-Liquidating Series, to receive Shared Available Funds allocable to such Series in accordance with the terms of the Supplements of other Series of Notes then Outstanding.  Any Managed Containers and Leases sold pursuant to this provision shall be subject to the rights of (i) any Lessee under any Lease of such Managed Containers and (ii) the rights of the Manager under the Management Agreement with respect to any Managed Container that is not a Terminated Container.  It shall be a condition to any such sale that the purchaser of such sold Managed Containers and Lease shall enter into a management agreement with CAL with respect to any sold Managed Container that is not a Terminated Container, which management agreement shall be in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to CAL (provided that if such purchaser is already party to a management agreement with CAL, such management agreement shall be deemed to be satisfactory to CAL for purposes of this sentence).
 
76

(c)        The specific Managed Containers and Leases to be included in any partial sale of Collateral pursuant to Section 804(b) above will be selected (i) by the Manager if no Trust Manager Default is then outstanding, or (ii) in all other instances, as set forth in the immediately succeeding sentence, in each case on a non-systematic basis such that Managed Containers to be sold will be representative in term, age, type, and on-lease status as the pool of Managed Containers owned by the Issuer after giving effect to such partial sale.  If a Trust Manager Default has occurred and is continuing, a third-party consultant, accounting firm or other advisor will be hired by the Indenture Trustee (acting at the direction of the Requisite Global Majority) at the expense of the Issuer to conduct such selection process.

(d)        For purposes of clarification only, the Noteholders of each Series shall have the right to accelerate the maturity of such Series of Notes during the continuance of Series-Specific Event of Default for such Series, on the terms and conditions set forth in the related Supplement.

(e)        If the Requisite Global Majority elects to sell all, or any portion, of the Collateral following the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Manager Transfer Facilitator shall use reasonable efforts to assist the Indenture Trustee in soliciting bids for each such sale of the Collateral.

Upon acceptance of appointment by a successor Indenture Trustee as provided in this Section, the Issuer shall deliver notice of the succession of such Indenture Trustee hereunder to all Noteholders at their addresses as shown in the registration books maintained by the Indenture Trustee and to each Interest Rate Hedge Provider.  If the Issuer fails to deliver such notice within ten (10) days after acceptance of appointment by the successor Indenture Trustee, the successor Indenture Trustee shall cause such notice to be delivered at the expense of the Issuer.

Section 910.       Separate Indenture Trustees, Co-Indenture Trustees and Custodians.
 
If the Indenture Trustee is not capable of acting for jurisdictional purposes, it shall have the power from time to time to appoint  one or more Persons or corporations to act either as co-trustees jointly with the Indenture Trustee, or as separate trustees, or as custodians, for the purpose of holding title to, foreclosing or otherwise taking action with respect to any of the Collateral, when such separate trustee or co-trustee is necessary or advisable under any Applicable Laws or for the purpose of otherwise conforming to any legal requirement, restriction or condition in any applicable jurisdiction.  The separate trustees, co-trustees, or custodians so appointed shall be trustees, co-trustees, or custodians for the benefit of all Noteholders and shall have such powers, rights and remedies as shall be specified in the instrument of appointment; provided, however, that no such appointment shall, or shall be deemed to, constitute the appointee an agent of the Indenture Trustee and the Indenture Trustee shall not have any liability relating to such appointment.  The Issuer shall join in any such appointment, but such joining shall not be necessary for the effectiveness of such appointment.
 
89

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

(i)            all powers, duties, obligations and rights conferred upon the Indenture Trustee in respect of the receipt, custody and payment of moneys shall be exercised solely by the Indenture Trustee;
 
(ii)           all other rights, powers, duties and obligations conferred or imposed upon the Indenture Trustee shall be conferred or imposed upon and exercised or performed by the Indenture Trustee and such separate trustee, co-trustee, or custodian jointly, except to the extent that under any law of any jurisdiction in which any particular act or acts are to be performed the Indenture 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 Collateral or any portion thereof in any such jurisdiction) shall be exercised and performed by such separate trustee, co-trustee or custodian;
 
(iii)           no trustee, co-trustee, separate trustee or custodian hereunder shall be liable by reason of any act or omission of any other trustee, co-trustee, separate trustee or custodian hereunder; and
 
(iv)           the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee may at any time accept the resignation of or remove any separate trustee, co-trustee or custodian so appointed by it or them if such resignation or removal does not violate the other terms of this Indenture.

Any notice, request or other writing given to the Indenture 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, co-trustee, or custodian shall refer to this Indenture and the conditions of this Article.  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 Indenture Trustee or separately, as may be provided therein, subject to all the provisions of this Indenture, specifically including every provision of this Indenture relating to the conduct of, affecting the liability of, or affording protection to, the Indenture Trustee.  Every such instrument shall be furnished to the Indenture Trustee and each Interest Rate Hedge Provider.

Any separate trustee, co-trustees, or custodian may, at any time, constitute the Indenture Trustee, 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 Indenture on its behalf and in its name.  If any separate trustee, co-trustee, or custodian shall die, become incapable of acting, resign or be removed, all of its estates, properties, rights, remedies and trusts shall vest in and be exercised by the Indenture Trustee, to the extent permitted by law, without the appointment of a new or successor trustee or custodian.

No separate trustee, co-trustee or custodian hereunder shall be required to meet the terms of eligibility as a successor Indenture Trustee under Section 906 hereof and no notice to Noteholders of the appointment thereof shall be required under Section 908 hereof.

The Indenture Trustee agrees to instruct the co-trustees, if any, to the extent necessary to fulfill the Indenture Trustee’s obligations hereunder.

(f)        Approvals.  Neither the execution or delivery by the Indenture Trustee of this Indenture nor the consummation of the transactions by the Indenture Trustee contemplated hereby requires the consent or approval of, the giving of notice to, the registration with or the taking of any other action with respect to any Governmental Authority under any existing federal or State of Minnesota or State of New York law governing the banking or trust powers of the Indenture Trustee.

Section 912.       Indenture Trustee Offices.
 
The Indenture Trustee shall maintain in the State of Minnesota an office or offices or agency or agencies where Notes may be surrendered for registration of transfer or exchange, which office is currently located at 600 S 4th Street, MAC N9300-061, Minneapolis, MN 55479, and shall promptly notify the Issuer, the Manager, each Interest Rate Hedge Provider and the Noteholders of any change of such location.

Section 913.       Notice of Trust Event of Default.
