Paragraph EA 3 in full

EA 3. Income Payments (Equities Annex)
(a) Subject as otherwise provided in this Equities Annex or as otherwise agreed between the parties, where the Income paid or distributed by the issuer of Purchased Securities or Margin Securities is not in the form of money but is in the form of other property, the obligation of a party under paragraph 5 of the Agreement to pay to the other party an amount equal to the amount paid by the issuer shall be construed as an obligation to transfer property equivalent to that distributed by the issuer.
(b) The existing paragraph 5 of the Agreement shall be replaced by the following -

“5. Income Payments

(a) Unless otherwise agreed -

(i) where: (x) the Term of a particular Transaction extends over an Income Payment Date in respect of any Securities subject to that Transaction which are not equities; or (y) an Income Payment Date in respect of any such Securities which are not equities occurs after the Repurchase Date but before Equivalent Securities have been delivered to the Seller or, if earlier, the occurrence of an Early Termination Date or the termination of the Transaction under paragraph 10(i) of the Agreement, then Buyer shall on the date such Income is paid by the issuer transfer to or credit to the account of Seller an amount equal to (and in the same currency as) the amount paid by the issuer;
(ii) where Margin Securities which are not equities are transferred from one party (“the first party”) to the other party (“the second party”) and an Income Payment Date in respect of such Securities occurs before Equivalent Margin Securities are transferred or a Cash Equivalent Amount is paid by the second party to the first party, the second party shall on the date such Income is paid by the issuer transfer to or credit to the account of the first party an amount equal to (and in the same currency as) the amount paid by the issuer,

and for the avoidance of doubt references in this sub-paragraph to the amount of Income paid by the issuer of any Securities shall be to an amount paid without any withholding or deduction for or on account of taxes or duties notwithstanding that a payment of such Income made in certain circumstances may be subject to a withholding or deduction.
(b)

(i) Unless otherwise agreed, where the Purchased Securities the subject of a Transaction consist of or include equities in respect of which an Income Payment Date would, but for this provision, occur during the Term of such Transaction, Seller shall seek to effect a substitution of such equities in accordance with paragraph 8(a) before the Notice Date referred to in sub-paragraph (b)(iii), but if such a substitution has not been effected by that date then Termination of such Transaction shall, provided that Seller has notified Buyer of such Termination in accordance with sub-paragraph (b)(iii), occur on, and, accordingly, the Repurchase Date of such Transaction shall fall on, the Business Day immediately preceding such Income Payment Date.
(ii) Unless otherwise agreed and except to the extent that Equivalent Margin Securities in respect of the relevant Margin Securities have already been transferred or a Cash Equivalent Amount has already been paid, where one party (the “transferor”) has transferred Margin Securities which are equities to the other (the “transferee”) then, on the Business Day preceding the next Income Payment Date in respect of such Margin Securities, the transferee shall transfer to the transferor Equivalent Margin Securities in respect of such Margin Securities in exchange for new Margin Securities as if such transfers were made pursuant to a request under paragraph 8(d) to which the transferee had agreed; provided that (aa) the transferor has given notice to the transferee in accordance with sub-paragraph (b)(iii) of the application of this sub-paragraph (b)(ii) and (bb) the transferor has provided reasonable details to the transferee of the Margin Securities in question, the relevant Income Payment Date and the new Margin Securities to be exchanged for such Equivalent Margin Securities and the transferee has indicated to the transferor that such new Margin Securities are acceptable to it.
(iii) Any notice given pursuant to sub-paragraphs (b)(i) or (b)(ii) above shall not be valid unless given so as to be effective, at the latest, one hour before the close of business on the last Business Day (the “Notice Date”) on which the recipient would customarily be required to initiate settlement of the securities to be transferred by it pursuant to such notice in order for settlement to take place on the Business Day immediately preceding the relevant Income Payment Date.
(iv) Nothing in this sub-paragraph (b) shall prejudice any entitlement of either party to terminate a Transaction in any other manner permitted by the Agreement.

(c) Unless otherwise agreed between the parties, where (notwithstanding, and without prejudice to, sub-paragraph (b) above) Equivalent Securities in respect of Purchased Securities which are equities or, as the case may be, Equivalent Margin Securities or a Cash Equivalent Amount in respect of Margin Securities which are equities have not been transferred, or paid, as the case may be, by Buyer to Seller or the transferee to the transferor prior to an Income Payment Date in respect of such Securities, then sub- paragraph (a) above shall not apply (if it otherwise would) in respect of such Securities, and the Buyer shall or, as the case may be, the transferee shall, on the date Income is paid by the issuer of those Securities, transfer to or credit to the account of Seller or, as the case may be, the transferor -

(i) an amount equal to (and in the same currency as) so much of such Income attributable to such Securities as Buyer or the transferee is (if it is the holder of such Securities on such Income Payment Date) or would have been (if it had been the holder of such Securities on such Income Payment Date) paid in cash by the issuer to the holder; and
(ii) an amount equal to such amount, if any, in respect of tax or tax benefit as Buyer or the transferee is (if it is the holder of such Securities on such Income Payment Date) or would have been (if it had been the holder of such Securities on such Income Payment Date) entitled to claim or recover in cash from the issuer’s jurisdiction in respect of such Income payment;

provided that, unless otherwise agreed between the parties:

(x) if Buyer or, as the case may be, the transferee has failed to make reasonable efforts to transfer the relevant Equivalent Securities or Equivalent Margin Securities prior to such Income Payment Date in circumstances where the proviso to sub-paragraph (b)(i) above or, as the case may be, sub-paragraph (b)(ii) has been satisfied; or
(y) where an Income Payment Date occurs after the Repurchase Date but before Equivalent Securities have been delivered to the Seller or, if earlier, the occurrence of an Early Termination Date or the termination of the Transaction under paragraph 10(i) of the Agreement,

then, instead of transferring or crediting the amount referred to in sub paragraphs (i) and (ii) of this sub-paragraph (c), Buyer or, as the case may be, the transferee shall indemnify Seller or, as the case may be, the transferor in respect of any cost, loss (including for the avoidance of doubt the amount of Income that would have been paid to Seller or, as the case may be, the transferor if it had been the holder of such Securities on such Income Payment Date) or damage (excluding, for the avoidance of doubt, any consequential loss or damage) suffered by such person which it would not have suffered had the relevant Equivalent Securities or Equivalent Margin Securities been transferred prior to such Income Payment Date.
(d) Where Buyer or, as the case may be, the transferee is required by law to make any transfer or credit pursuant to sub-paragraph (c)(i) or (ii) above subject to withholding or deduction of taxes or duties, and as a result would, but for this sub-paragraph, be required to pay additional amounts under paragraph 6(b) of the Agreement, unless otherwise agreed between the parties, it shall only be obliged to pay such additional amounts to the extent that it could, in the relevant circumstances, have avoided, satisfied or off-set the relevant obligation to withhold or deduct (or to account for the tax withheld or deducted) by utilising any available tax credit in respect of the relevant Securities (or Transactions relating to them).”

Content and comparisons

This is the meat of the Equities Annex: it substantially rewrites the Income Payments section of the Global Master Repurchase Agreement for equities, whose income and distributions roll quite differently to those of bonds, which are the normal meat and drink of a Global Master Repurchase Agreement.
