The Trustee and the Collateral Trustee shall have no responsibility for any investment losses resulting from the investment, reinvestment or liquidation of the Trust Monies to the extent such investment, reinvestment or liquidation is made in compliance with the terms of this Section 12.06. The Co-Issuers acknowledge that the Collateral Trustee is not providing investment supervision, recommendations, or advice. Any interest or other income received on such investment and reinvestment of the Trust Monies shall become part of the Trust Monies and any losses incurred on such investment and reinvestment of the Trust Monies shall be debited against the Trust Monies. If a selection is not made and a written direction not given to the Collateral Trustee, the Trust Monies deposited in cash shall remain uninvested with no liability for interest thereon. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Collateral Trustee shall have the power to sell or liquidate the foregoing investments whenever the Collateral Trustee shall be required to release all or any portion of the Trust Monies pursuant to this Article Twelve. In no event shall the Collateral Trustee be deemed an investment manager or adviser in respect of any selection of investments hereunder. It is understood and agreed that the Collateral Trustee or its affiliates are permitted to receive additional compensation that could be deemed to be in the Collateral Trustee’s economic self-interest for (A) serving as investment adviser, administrator, shareholder servicing agent or custodian with respect to certain of the investments, (B) using affiliates to effect transactions in certain investments and (C) effecting transactions in investments.

The Co-Issuers agree that confirmations of investments are not required to be issued by the Collateral Trustee for any month for which a monthly statement is rendered. No statement need be rendered for any fund or account if no activity occurred in such fund or account during such month. The Co-Issuers may obtain confirmations at no additional cost upon their written request.

The Co-Issuers shall be obligated to and shall pay or reimburse the Collateral Trustee upon request for any transfer taxes or other taxes relating to the Trust Monies incurred in connection herewith. The Co-Issuers agree that, for tax reporting purposes, all interest and other income from investment of the Trust Monies shall, as of the end of each calendar year and to the extent required by the Internal Revenue Service, be reported as having been earned by the Company, whether or not such income was disbursed during such calendar year.

The Co-Issuers shall indemnify, defend and hold the Collateral Trustee harmless from and against any tax, late payment, interest, penalty or other cost or expense that may be assessed against the Collateral Trustee on or with respect to the Trust Monies and the investment thereof unless such tax, late payment, interest, penalty or other cost or expense was directly caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Collateral Trustee. The indemnification provided by this Section 12.06 is in addition to the indemnification provided in Section 11.16 and shall survive the resignation or removal of the Collateral Trustee and the satisfaction and discharge of this Indenture.
