The Company will establish and maintain ‘Debt Payment Accounts’ (“DPA”) with the [Account Bank (TBU)]. The DPA will be held under exclusive lien for the benefit of the Participating Institution(s).
The DPA will be funded in the following manner: (1) Proceeds from the sale of Sponsor shares in TPL Trakker (2) Proceeds from the sale of Sponsor shares in TPL Life Insurance (3) Proceeds from Right share issuance of the Company.
In addition to all of the above, dividends from group companies will be deposited in the DPA.

Insurance guarantee to cover the first year quarterly profit payments of upto PKR 76 million per quarter. If the Issuer is unable to fund the DPA as mentioned above, the Investment agent will have the power to call the guarantee 2 days prior to the profit payment date.
Pre Default Mechanism
If a day before prior to the payment date, the DPA does not have enough funds to cover the upcoming installment, the issue agent may liquidate the equity securities pledged with the issue agent equivalent to the short fall amount to cover the upcoming installment after giving prior notice of 15 days to the Issuer. This will be secondary to Insurance Guarantee.
In case the issuer does not build the requisite amount of upcoming installment in DPA on the desired date, the issue agent would initiate the process for realization of underlying security on immediate basis. First call for realization would be made for encashment of Insurance Guarantee. In case the proceeds from insurance company does not fall through within the pre-agreed timeframe or there is some degree of shortfall, the Trustee would initiate the process for realization of appropriate quantum of under-lien shares.
This event would initiate a cure period, without invoking the event of default, to manage all modalities and transfer of installment in DPA in a timely manner. Maximum length of the cure period can be 15 days. The cure period availed would attract mark-up at the rate of 3M KIBOR + 275 bps.
