8. Within fifteen (15) days of the receipt of a repurchase demand from an agency or investor, the Participant may request NAMC to submit additional information to the agency or investor and to request the agency or investor to reconsider such repurchase request. NAMC shall submit such request unless, in its sole and absolute discretion, NAMC determines in good faith that there is no basis to request such consideration or that submission of such a request would be injurious to its business relationship with the agency or investor. Demand for repurchase by Participant will be made upon notification by the investor or agency of its final decision that the Mortgage Loan must be repurchased.
9. The Participant also agrees to repurchase upon demand any Mortgage Loan underwritten pursuant to this Addendum and sold to NAMC under the Agreement if:

  Funds to repurchase any such Mortgage Loan shall be provided by Participant no more than thirty (30) days from notification of NAMC’s final decision that the loan must be repurchased.

The repurchase price to be paid by the Participant for any Mortgage Loan repurchased pursuant to the terms hereof shall be calculated as provided in Section 8(a) of the Agreement.

11. For any Mortgage Loan underwritten pursuant to this Addendum that is prepaid in full on or before 120 days following the applicable Sale Date, the Participant agrees to refund to NAMC, within 30 days after NAMC notifies the Participant of the prepayment, an amount equal to (i) the servicing release premium paid for such Mortgage Loan, plus (ii) any premium pricing paid to Participant less any discount pricing.
