(b) In the event that any officer of the Town whose manual or facsimile signature appears on the Bonds ceases to be such officer before the authentication of such Bonds or before the delivery thereof, such manual or facsimile signature nevertheless shall be valid and sufficient for all purposes as if such officer had remained in such office. (c) Except as provided below, no Bonds shall be valid or obligatory for any purpose or be entitled to any security or benefit of this Ordinance unless and until there appears thereon the certificate of Paying Agent/Registrar substantially in the form provided herein, duly authenticated by manual execution by an officer or duly authorized signatory of the Paying Agent/Registrar. It shall not be required that the same officer or authorized signatory of the Paying Agent/Registrar sign the Certificate of Paying Agent/Registrar on all of the Bonds. In lieu of the executed Certificate of Paying Agent/Registrar described above, the Initial Bonds delivered at the Closing Date shall have attached thereto the Comptroller’s Registration Certificate substantially in the form provided herein, manually executed by the Comptroller of Public Accounts of the State of Texas, or by his duly authorized agent, which Certificate shall be evidence that the Bond has been duly approved by the Attorney General of the State of Texas, that it is a valid and binding obligation of the Town, and that it has been registered by the Comptroller of Public Accounts of the State of Texas. (d) On the Closing Date, one initial Bond (the “Initial Bond”) representing the entire principal amount of all Bonds, payable in stated installments to the initial purchaser, or its designee, executed by the Mayor and Town Secretary of the Town, approved by the Attorney General, and registered and manually signed by the Comptroller of Public Accounts, will be delivered to the initial purchaser or its designee.

Section 3.05. Ownership. (a) The Town, the Paying Agent/Registrar, and any other person may treat the person in whose name any Bond is registered as the absolute owner of such Bond for the purpose of making and receiving payment as herein provided (except interest shall be paid to the person in whose name such Bond is registered on the Record Date or Special Record Date, as applicable), and for all other purposes, whether or not such Bond is overdue, and neither the Town nor the Paying Agent/Registrar shall be bound by any notice or knowledge to the contrary. (b) All payments made to the Owner of a Bond shall be valid and effectual and shall discharge the liability of the Town and the Paying Agent/Registrar upon such Bond to the extent of the sums paid. - 13 - #8101998.2 Section 3.06. Registration, Transfer, and Exchange. (a) So long as any Bonds remain outstanding, the Town shall cause the Paying Agent/Registrar to keep at the Designated Payment/Transfer Office a register (the “Register”) in which, subject to such reasonable regulations as it may prescribe, the Paying Agent/Registrar shall provide for the registration and transfer of Bonds in accordance with this Ordinance. (b) The ownership of a Bond may be transferred only upon the presentation and surrender of the Bond at the Designated Payment/Transfer Office of the Paying Agent/Registrar with such endorsement or other evidence of transfer as is acceptable to the Paying Agent/Registrar. No transfer of any Bond shall be effective until entered in the Register. (c) The Bonds shall be exchangeable upon the presentation and surrender thereof at the Designated Payment/Transfer Office of the Paying Agent/Registrar for a Bond or Bonds of the same maturity and interest rate and in a denomination or denominations of any integral multiple of $5,000, and in an aggregate principal amount equal to the unpaid principal amount of the Bonds presented for exchange. The Paying Agent/Registrar is hereby authorized to authenticate and deliver Bonds exchanged for other Bonds in accordance with this Section. (d) Each exchange Bond delivered by the Paying Agent/Registrar in accordance with this Section shall constitute an original contractual obligation of the Town and shall be entitled to the benefits and security of this Ordinance to the same extent as the Bond or Bonds in lieu of which such exchange Bond is delivered. (e) No service charge shall be made to the Owner for the initial registration, subsequent transfer, or exchange for a different denomination of any of the Bonds. The Paying Agent/Registrar, however, may require the Owner to pay a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that is authorized to be imposed in connection with the registration, transfer, or exchange of a Bond. (f) Neither the Town nor the Paying Agent/Registrar shall be required to issue, transfer or exchange any Bond called for redemption, in whole or in part, within 45 calendar days prior to the date fixed for redemption; provided, however, such limitation shall not be applicable to an exchange by the Owner of the uncalled principal balance of a Bond. Section 3.07. Cancellation. All Bonds paid or redeemed before scheduled maturity in accordance with this Ordinance, and all Bonds in lieu of which exchange Bonds or replacement Bonds are authenticated and delivered in accordance with this Ordinance, shall be canceled and proper records made regarding such payment, redemption, exchange, or replacement. The Paying Agent/Registrar shall then return such canceled Bonds to the Town or may in accordance with law dispose of such cancelled Bonds. Section 3.08. Temporary Bonds. (a) Following the delivery and registration of the Initial Bond and pending the preparation of definitive Bonds, the proper officers of the Town may execute and, upon the - 14 - #8101998.2 Town’s request, the Paying Agent/Registrar shall authenticate and deliver, one or more temporary Bonds that are printed, lithographed, typewritten, mimeographed, or otherwise produced, in any denomination, substantially of the tenor of the definitive Bonds in lieu of which they are delivered, without coupons, and with such appropriate insertions, omissions, substitutions, and other variations as the officers of the Town executing such temporary Bonds may determine, as evidenced by their signing of such temporary Bonds. (b) Until exchanged for Bonds in definitive form, such Bonds in temporary form shall be entitled to the benefit and security of this Ordinance. (c) The Town, without unreasonable delay, shall prepare, execute and deliver to the Paying Agent/Registrar the Bonds in definitive form; thereupon, upon the presentation and surrender of the Bond or Bonds in temporary form to the Paying Agent/Registrar, the Paying Agent/Registrar shall cancel the Bonds in temporary form and shall authenticate and deliver in exchange therefor a Bond or Bonds of the same maturity and series, in definitive form, in the authorized denomination, and in the same aggregate principal amount, as the Bond or Bonds in temporary form surrendered. Such exchange shall be made without the making of any charge therefor to any Owner. Section 3.09. Replacement Bonds. (a) Upon the presentation and surrender to the Paying Agent/Registrar of a mutilated Bond, the Paying Agent/Registrar shall authenticate and deliver in exchange therefor a replacement Bond of like tenor and principal amount, bearing a number not contemporaneously outstanding. The Town or the Paying Agent/Registrar may require the Owner of such Bond to pay a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that is authorized to be imposed in connection therewith and any other expenses connected therewith. (b) In the event that any Bond is lost, apparently destroyed or wrongfully taken, the Paying Agent/Registrar, pursuant to the applicable laws of the State of Texas and in the absence of notice or knowledge that such Bond has been acquired by a bona fide purchaser, shall authenticate and deliver a replacement Bond of like tenor and principal amount, bearing a number not contemporaneously outstanding, provided that the Owner first complies with the following requirements: (i) furnishes to the Paying Agent/Registrar satisfactory evidence of his or her ownership of and the circumstances of the loss, destruction, or theft of such Bond; (ii) furnishes such security or indemnity as may be required by the Paying Agent/Registrar to save it and the Town harmless; (iii) pays all expenses and charges in connection therewith, including, but not limited to, printing costs, legal fees, fees of the Paying Agent/Registrar, and any tax or other governmental charge that is authorized to be imposed; and (iv) satisfies any other reasonable requirements imposed by the Town and the Paying Agent/Registrar. - 15 - #8101998.2 (c) If, after the delivery of such replacement Bond, a bona fide purchaser of the original Bond in lieu of which such replacement Bond was issued presents for payment such original Bond, the Town and the Paying Agent/Registrar shall be entitled to recover such replacement Bond from the person to whom it was delivered or any person taking therefrom, except a bona fide purchaser, and shall be entitled to recover upon the security or indemnity provided therefor to the extent of any loss, damage, cost, or expense incurred by the Town or the Paying Agent/Registrar in connection therewith. (d) In the event that any such mutilated, lost, apparently destroyed, or wrongfully taken Bond has become or is about to become due and payable, the Paying Agent/Registrar, in its discretion, instead of issuing a replacement Bond, may pay such Bond when it becomes due and payable. (e) Each replacement Bond delivered in accordance with this Section shall constitute an original additional contractual obligation of the Town and shall be entitled to the benefits and security of this Ordinance to the same extent as the Bond or Bonds in lieu of which such replacement Bond is delivered. Section 3.10. Book-Entry-Only System. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, upon initial issuance of the Bond, the Bonds shall be registered in the name of Cede & Co., as nominee of DTC. The definitive Bonds shall be initially issued in the form of a single separate bond for each of the maturities thereof.

In furtherance thereof, the Town covenants to comply with sections 103 and 141 through 150 of the Code and the provisions set forth in the Federal Tax Certificate executed by the Town in connection with the Bonds. (b) No Private Activity Bonds. The Town covenants that it will use the proceeds of the Bonds (including investment income) and the property financed, directly or indirectly, with such proceeds so that the Bonds will not be “private activity bonds” within the meaning of section 141 of the Code. Furthermore, the Town will not take a deliberate action (as defined in section 1.141-2(d)(3) of the Regulations) that causes the Bonds to be a “private activity bond” unless it takes a remedial action permitted by section 1.141-12 of the Regulations. (c) No Federal Guarantee. The Town covenants not to take any action or omit to take any action that, if taken or omitted, would cause the Bonds to be “federally guaranteed” within the meaning of section 149(b) of the Code, except as permitted by section 149(b)(3) of the Code. (d) No Hedge Bonds. The Town covenants not to take any action or omit to take action that, if taken or omitted, would cause the Bonds to be “hedge bonds” within the meaning of section 149(g) of the Code. (e) No Arbitrage. The Town covenants that it will make such use of the proceeds of the Bonds (including investment income) and regulate the investment of such proceeds of the Bonds so that the Bonds will not be “arbitrage bonds” within the meaning of section 148(a) of the Code. (f) Required Rebate. The Town covenants that, if the Town does not qualify for an exception to the requirements of section 148(f) of the Code, the Town will comply with the requirement that certain amounts earned by the Town on the investment of the gross proceeds of the Bonds, be rebated to the United States. (g) Information Reporting. The Town covenants to file or cause to be filed with the Secretary of the Treasury an information statement concerning the Bonds in accordance with section 149(e) of the Code. (h) Record Retention. The Town covenants to retain all material records relating to the expenditure of the proceeds (including investment income) of the Refunded Bonds and the Bonds and the use of the property financed, directly or indirectly, thereby until three years after the last Bond is redeemed or paid at maturity (or such other period as provided by subsequent guidance issued by the Department of the Treasury) in a manner that ensures their complete access throughout such retention period. (i) Registration. If the Bonds are “registration-required bonds” under section 149(a)(2) of the Code, the Bonds will be issued in registered form. - 31 - #8101998.2 (j) Favorable Opinion of Bond Counsel. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Town will not be required to comply with any of the federal tax covenants set forth above if the Town has received an opinion of nationally recognized bond counsel that such noncompliance will not adversely affect the excludability of interest on the Bonds from gross income for federal income tax purposes. (k) Continuing Obligation. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Order, the Town’s obligations under the federal tax covenants set forth above will survive the defeasance and discharge of the Bonds for as long as such matters are relevant to the excludability of interest on the Bonds from gross income for federal income tax purposes.

(b) Until exchanged for Bonds in definitive form, such Bonds in temporary form shall be entitled to the benefit and security of this Ordinance.

(b) In the event that any Bond is lost, apparently destroyed or wrongfully taken, the Paying Agent/Registrar, pursuant to the applicable laws of the State of Texas and in the absence of notice or knowledge that such Bond has been acquired by a bona fide purchaser, shall authenticate and deliver a replacement Bond of like tenor and principal amount, bearing a number not contemporaneously outstanding, provided that the Owner first complies with the following requirements: (i) furnishes to the Paying Agent/Registrar satisfactory evidence of his or her ownership of and the circumstances of the loss, destruction, or theft of such Bond; (ii) furnishes such security or indemnity as may be required by the Paying Agent/Registrar to save it and the Town harmless; - 15 - #8101998.3 (iii) pays all expenses and charges in connection therewith, including, but not limited to, printing costs, legal fees, fees of the Paying Agent/Registrar, and any tax or other governmental charge that is authorized to be imposed; and (iv) satisfies any other reasonable requirements imposed by the Town and the Paying Agent/Registrar.

(d) In the event that any such mutilated, lost, apparently destroyed, or wrongfully taken Bond has become or is about to become due and payable, the Paying Agent/Registrar, in its discretion, instead of issuing a replacement Bond, may pay such Bond when it becomes due and payable. (e) Each replacement Bond delivered in accordance with this Section shall constitute an original additional contractual obligation of the Town and shall be entitled to the benefits and security of this Ordinance to the same extent as the Bond or Bonds in lieu of which such replacement Bond is delivered.

Rating Action S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'AAA' rating to Westlake, Texas' proposed $19.43 million series 2021 general obligation (GO) refunding bonds and proposed $3.4 million certificates of obligation. At the same time, S&P Global Ratings has affirmed the ‘AAA’ rating on Westlake’s debt outstanding. The outlook on all ratings is stable. The bonds are secured by the town's direct and continuing annual ad valorem tax, levied within the limits prescribed by law, on all taxable property within the town. The maximum allowable rate in Texas is $2.50 per $100 of assessed value (AV) for all purposes with the portion dedicated to debt service limited to $1.50. The town's levy is well below the maximum, at 16.7 cents, 0.43 cents of which is for debt service. We rate the bonds under our GO criteria because we do not differentiate between the town's limited- and unlimited-tax pledges due to its tax rate flexibility, very strong liquidity, and high investment-grade debt. Officials intend to use series 20121 bond proceeds to refund a portion of the town's existing debt (series 2011 GO and COs) for present value savings and the COs will be used to finance public works projects. A limited pledge of net waterworks and sewer system revenue--not to exceed $1,000--further secures the certificates. Given the limited nature of the additional pledged revenue, the ratings on these obligations reflect the strength of the town's ad valorem tax pledge. Westlake's GO debt is eligible to be rated above the sovereign because we assess the town can maintain better credit characteristics than the U.S. in a stress scenario. Under our criteria "Ratings Above the Sovereign--Corporate and Government Ratings: Methodology And Assumptions" (published Nov. 19, 2013), U.S. local governments are considered to have moderate sensitivity to country risk. The town's GO pledge is the primary source of security on the debt; this severely limits the possibility of negative sovereign intervention in the payment of the debt or in the town's operations. The institutional framework in the U.S. is predictable for local governments, allowing them significant autonomy and independent treasury management, and has no history of government intervention. Westlake has considerable financial flexibility, as demonstrated by its very strong general fund balance as a percentage of expenditures, as well as very strong liquidity. Credit overview The town of Westlake is favorably located northwest of Dallas, with both commercial and residential developments contributing to a growing tax base, with 38% growth from fiscal 2020 to fiscal 2022. The expectation is that the tax base will continue to grow with the completion of the mixed-use development, Entrada, by an estimated $300 million, and with the development of the remaining 60% of the land. Despite a reliance on sales tax revenues, the town has maintained very strong reserves and financial performance, managing swings in revenues (both sales and hotel occupancy) during the pandemic, reflective of good financial practices and policies. Offsetting these credit strengths, the town has an elevated debt profile, but which we believe is affordable given the size of the tax base and expectation for future growth and lack of near-term borrowing plans. The rating reflects our opinion of the town's: • Very strong economy, with access to a broad and diverse metropolitan statistical area (MSA); • Strong management, with good financial policies and practices under our Financial Management Assessment (FMA) methodology; • Strong budgetary performance, closing with operating surpluses in the general fund and at the total governmental fund level in fiscal 2020; • Very strong budgetary flexibility, with a high available fund balance in fiscal 2020 of 166% of operating expenditures; • Very strong liquidity, with total government available cash at 100.6% of total governmental fund expenditures and 8.0x governmental debt service, and access to external liquidity we consider strong; • Very weak debt and contingent liability profile, with debt service carrying charges at 12.6% of expenditures and net direct debt that is 208.1% of total governmental fund revenue; and • Strong institutional framework score. Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors We analyzed the town's environmental, social, and governance risks relative to its economy, management, financial measures, and debt and liability profile, and determined that all are in line with our view of the sector standard. Stable Outlook Downside scenario We could lower the rating if the town were to experience multi-year financial deterioration resulting in a material reduction of available reserves, coupled with an elevated debt profile, and weakening economic characteristics. Very strong economy We consider Westlake's economy very strong. The town, with an estimated population of 1,310, is located in Denton and Tarrant counties in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington MSA, which we consider to be broad and diverse. The town has a projected per capita effective buying income of 271% of the national level, which we view as extremely high, and a positive credit factor and per capita market value of $1.3 million. Overall, the town's market value grew by 38.5% over the past year to $1.6 billion in 2021. The weight- averaged unemployment rate of the counties was 7.3% in 2020. Its favorable location among the three leading regional cities offers residents several employment opportunities, including nearby Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and Fort Worth's Alliance Gateway Airport. The town's tax base, while predominantly residential, also has a significant commercial base as well, making up approximately 51%, and 27% of 2021 assessed value, respectively. According to representatives, the town has five residential developments with entitlements to approximately 200 homes, with an expected price range of $2.5 million to $7 million. Overall, the average house price in the town has increased from $.5 million in 2017 to $2 million. Additionally, the town has a mixed-used development, Entrada, with 322 residential units with an estimated value of $1 million each and approximately one million square feet of commercial entitlement (retail, hotel, and office spaces). The town's commercial presence includes major employers and taxpayers such as Deloitte University, an international training facility for Deloitte; Fidelity; Charles Schwab corporate headquarters, newly established in the last three years; and the Solana complex. The Solana mixed-use complex contains several offices, eateries, and a hotel. Continued growth in these sectors has supported significant cumulative AV growth over the last five years to $1.3 billion. We expect growth to continue as the town has approximately 60% of land available for development. Town officials attribute residential demand to the town's favorable location as well as the opening of a local charter school, Westlake Academy, which is operated by the town’s management and funded through the town. The large commercial presence contributes to the town's concentrated tax base; however, officials have no concerns with any of the town's leading taxpayers and employers. Additionally, continued economic expansion has resulted in the improvement of tax base concentration from 38% in fiscal 2017 to 31% in fiscal 2021. We anticipate further planned residential and commercial construction to continue to support local tax base growth and further diversification over the next two years. Strong management We view the town's management as strong, with good financial policies and practices under our FMA methodology, indicating financial practices exist in most areas, but that government officials might not formalize or monitor all of them regularly. Highlights of the town's practices include its: • Revenue and expenditure assumptions based, in part, on five years of historical trends and estimates of the town's needs; • Quarterly budget reports to the city council on a year-to-date comparison of the budget and amendments performed as needed; • Formal investment policy that management reviews annually with quarterly reports on investment performance and holdings to the council; • Formal long term financial plan and five-year forecast of revenue and expenditures across all funds; • Rolling five-year capital plan that identifies funding sources and uses; and • Formal minimum general fund balance policy of maintaining 180 days' operating expenditures in available fund balance, though preference is to hold 300 days. The town currently lacks a comprehensive debt management policy. Strong budgetary performance Westlake's budgetary performance is strong in our opinion. The town had operating surpluses of 13.8% of expenditures in the general fund and 4.0% across all governmental funds in fiscal 2020. Our view of the town’s budgetary performance includes adjustments made to account for recurring transfers in and out in each of the last three audited years. In fiscal 2020, Westlake posted strong operating results, with a $1.4 million general fund surplus. Sales tax is the town's leading revenue source followed by franchise tax, accounting for 64% and 19% of general fund revenue, respectively. Property taxes account for less than 1% of revenues in the general fund. Solid gains in year-over-year sales tax collections in 2018 and 2019 have given way to fluctuations in more recent years. Management notes that although sales tax, hotel occupancy tax, and user development fees were down, 8%, 57%, and 66%, respectively, in 2020 due to the pandemic, property taxes increased 23% in the same period, partially offsetting some losses. Management also notes that these fees are rebounding and improving consistently in the current year. The town conservatively budgeted for a total governmental deficit in fiscal 2021 due to the uncertainties surrounding the pandemic However, the town’s historical operational performance has demonstrated the ability to exceed budgeted expectations and per the most recent budget report, the town is expecting a modest surplus in the general fund at fiscal year-end. For fiscal 2022, the town is budgeted for a 6% increase in revenues and 2% increase in expenditures, indicating another year of positive performance. Based on the town’s historical performance, rebounding revenue sources, and the addition of federal stimulus funds, we expect the town’s financial performance to remain consistent in the near term. Very Strong budgetary flexibility Westlake currently maintains available fund balances of more than 75% of expenditures, which we believe to be exceptional. Management has maintained available fund balances of more than 100% of expenditures in each of the last three audited fiscal years. Officials are projecting the fund balance ratio will remain more than 100% in fiscal years 2021 and 2022. Based on projections, we do not expect the budgetary flexibility score to decrease below what we consider a very strong level. Flexibility is additionally supported by the town's formal fund balance policy equal to a minimum of 180 days of operating expenses. Very strong liquidity In our opinion, Westlake's liquidity is very strong, with total government available cash at 1x of total governmental fund expenditures and 8.0x governmental debt service in 2020. In our view, the town has strong access to external liquidity if necessary. The town has demonstrated its access to external liquidity through its frequent debt issuance over the past two decades. As of Sept. 30, 2020, investments were primarily held in mutual funds, with a small portion in TexPool, the state's local government investment pool. We do not consider these investments to be aggressive. The town of Westlake has privately placed three series of debt totaling $5.2 million in debt. These series include 2017 tax notes, series 2011 COs, and a capital lease. The legal documents for this debt include standard events of default, and do not include acceleration of principal or default rates as remedi es for default. Therefore, we do not consider this debt to be a contingent liability risk. Very weak debt and contingent liability profile In our view, Westlake's debt and contingent liability profile is very weak. Total governmental fund debt service is 12.6% of total governmental fund expenditures, and net direct debt is 208.1% of total governmental fund revenue. Following this issuance, the town will have approximately $49.8 million outstanding limited tax debt, The town has no authorized but unissued debt after this issuance, and they do not have plans to get voter authorization for additional debt at this time. Given the lack of near-term borrowing plans, we anticipate the town debt profile to remain stable. Pension and other post-employment benefits (OPEB) We do not view pension and OPEB liabilities as a source of credit risk for the town, as required contributions currently represent an affordable share of total governmental expenditures. The town participates in: • Texas Municipal Retirement System (TMRS): 84.9% funded with a net pension liability of $1.4 million as of Dec. 31, 2019. • Texas Retirement System (TRS): 75.5% funded with a net pension liability of $1.5 million as of Dec. 31, 2019. • The town also participates in the TMRS supplemental death benefits fund, offering term life insurance to retirees. However, the town's participation in the plan is voluntary and can be discontinued in any year at council discretion. Therefore, we do not view OPEB liabilities as a credit risk. • Texas Public School Retired Employees' Group Insurance program (TRS-Care), which provides health insurance coverage to members of the TRS pension plan is 4.99% funded and the town has a proportionate share of the net OPEB liability of $2.3 million. TMRS' and TRS’ actuarially determined contributions fell short of our minimum funding progress (MFP) metric. The MFP metric assesses whether the most recent employer and employee contributions cover total service cost, plus unfunded interest cost, plus one-thirtieth of the principal. When MFP is achieved, it indicates that an issuer has a strong funding discipline that aims to ensure timely progress on reducing its plans' liabilities. The plans use certain assumptions that could increase contribution volatility, including 6.75% and 7.25% discount rates, respectively, which we view as aggressive, though there are other offsetting factors. For more information on pensions, see "Pension Spotlight: Texas," published Feb. 25, 2020. Despite the potential for contribution volatility, we expect strong reserves would allow the town to absorb the increases with minimal disruption to financial performance in the near term. Westlake's combined required pension and actual other postemployment benefit (OPEB) contributions totaled 3.2% of total governmental fund expenditures in 2020. The town made its full required pension contribution in 2020. Strong institutional framework The institutional framework score for Texas municipalities is strong.
