The maximum facility limit of the Elan Credit Facility as at the Closing Date is EUR750 million and may be increased or decreased from time to time in accordance with the terms of the Elan Credit Facility.
EU Risk Retention: Goldman Sachs Bank Europe SE (a related entity of the Elan Lender) as the Retention Holder, in its capacity as the “originator” within the meaning of Article 2(3) of Regulation (EU) 2017/2402, has undertaken that for as long as the Notes are outstanding, it will on an ongoing basis retain a material net economic interest in the securitisation transaction which shall in any event not be less than 5% in accordance with Article 6 of the Securitisation Regulation. As at the Closing Date, such material net economic interest will be held in accordance with paragraph 3 item (a) of Article 6 of the Securitisation Regulation by holding no less than 5% of the nominal value of each of the Classes of Notes sold or transferred to investors.
U.S. Risk Retention Requirements: For the purposes of this transaction, the Elan Lender has determined that it is a “sponsor” of the securitisation transaction contemplated hereby for purposes of the U.S. Risk Retention Requirements. In this transaction, the credit risk retention requirement will be achieved by the Retention Holder, a Majority-Owned Affiliate of the Elan Lender, retaining an “eligible vertical interest” in the securitisation transaction by acquiring not less than 5% of each Class of Notes. The Retention Holder is a Majority-Owned Affiliate of the Elan Lender, because 100% of the equity interests in each entity are indirectly owned by a common parent.
