Events of Default
Each indenture deÑnes an ""Event of Default'' with respect to any series of debt securities as any of the following:
‚ default in any payment of principal or premium, if any, on any debt security of such series; ‚ default for 30 days in payment of any interest, if any, on any debt security of such series;
‚ default in the making or satisfaction of any sinking fund payment or analogous obligation on the debt securities of such series;
‚ default for 60 days after written notice to GECC in performance of any other covenant in respect of the debt securities of such series contained in such indenture;
‚ a default, as deÑned, with respect to any other series of debt securities outstanding under the relevant Indenture or as deÑned in any other indenture or instrument evidencing or under which GECC has outstanding any indebtedness for borrowed money, as a result of which such other series or such other indebtedness of GECC shall have been accelerated and such acceleration shall not have been annulled within 10 days after written notice thereof (provided, that the resulting Event of Default with respect to such series of debt securities may be remedied, cured or waived by the remedying, curing or waiving of such other default under such other series or such other indebtedness); or
‚ certain events involving bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization. (Section 6.01).
Each indenture requires us to deliver to the Trustee annually a written statement as to the presence or absence of certain defaults under the terms thereof. (Section 4.05). An Event of Default under one series of debt securities does not necessarily constitute an Event of Default under any other series of debt securities. Each indenture provides that the Trustee may withhold notice to the holders of any series of debt securities issued thereunder of any default if the Trustee considers it in the interest of such noteholders to do so provided the Trustee may not withhold notice of default in the payment of principal, premium, if any, or interest, if any, on any of the debt securities of such series or in the making of any sinking fund installment or analogous obligation with respect to such series. (Section 6.08).
The senior indentures provide that if any Event of Default occurs and is continuing with respect to any series of senior debt securities, either the Trustee or the holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding senior debt securities of such series may declare the principal, or in the case of discounted debt securities, a portion of the principal amount, of all such senior debt securities to be due and payable immediately. The subordinated indenture provides that (i) if an Event of Default arising from a breach of our covenants and agreements with respect to merger, sale or conveyance or certain events involving bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization occurs and is continuing with respect to any series of subordinated debt securities or (ii) when no ""senior indebtedness'' as deÑned below under ""Subordinated Debt Securities'' is outstanding, if an Event of Default speciÑed in (i) above or any other Event of Default occurs with respect to a series of subordinated debt securities, then, in either case, the Trustee or the holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding subordinated debt securities of such series may declare the principal, or in the case of discounted debt securities, a portion of the principal amount, of all such subordinated debt securities to be due and payable immediately. Under certain conditions such declaration may be annulled by the holders of a majority in principal amount of such debt securities then outstanding. The
