Compensation in the Event of Termination In the event that the Executive’s employment hereunder terminates prior to the expiration of this Agreement for any reason provided in Section 5 hereof, the Company shall pay the Executive, compensation and provide the Executive and the Executive’s eligible dependents with benefits as follows:
EXPENSE PROVISION Until this agreement shall be amended or terminated pursuant to Section 2 or Section 5 hereof, the Manager agrees, with respect to Class K6, to pay or provide for the payment of any fee or expense allocated at the class level and attributable to Class K6 and waive a portion of the management fee payable by such class, such that the ordinary operating expenses incurred by Class K6 in any fiscal year (excluding (i) taxes; (ii) the fees and expenses of all Trustees of the Trust who are not “interested persons” of the Trust or of the Adviser; (iii) interest expenses with respect to borrowings by the Fund; (iv) Rule 12b-1 fees, if any; (v) expenses of printing and mailing proxy materials to shareholders of the Fund; (vi) all other expenses incidental to holding meetings of the Fund’s shareholders, including proxy solicitations therefor; and (vii) such non-recurring and/or extraordinary expenses as may arise, including actions, suits or proceedings to which the Fund is or is threatened to be a party and the legal obligation that the Fund may have to indemnify the Trust’s Trustees and officers with respect thereto) as well as non-operating expenses such as brokerage commissions and fees and expenses associated with the Fund’s securities lending program, if applicable, will not exceed the annual rate set forth in Schedule A of the average daily net assets of the class (computed in the manner set forth in the Trust’s Trust Instrument) throughout the month. For avoidance of doubt, it is understood that this agreement shall not apply to any other class other than Class K6 of the Fund.
Expense Limitation As part of the consideration for the Fund entering into this Agreement, the Manager hereby agrees to limit the aggregate expenses of every character incurred by the Fund, including but not limited to Fees of the Manager computed as hereinabove set forth, but excluding interest, taxes, brokerage, and other expenditures which are capitalized in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and extraordinary expenses (“Manager Limitation”). Under the Manager Limitation, the Manager agrees that through a certain date (“Certain Date”), such expenses shall not exceed a certain level of the average daily net assets of the Fund (“Expense Limitation”). To determine the Manager’s liability for the Fund’s expenses over the Expense Limitation, the amount of allowable year-to-date expenses shall be computed daily by prorating the Expense Limitation based on the number of days elapsed within the fiscal year of the Fund, or limitation period, if shorter (“Prorated Limitation”). The Prorated Limitation shall be compared to the expenses of the Fund recorded through the prior day in order to produce the allowable expenses to be recorded for the current day (“Allowable Expenses”). If the Fund’s Management Fee and other expenses for the current day exceed the Allowable Expenses, the Management Fee for the current day shall be reduced by such excess (“Unaccrued Fees”). In the event the excess exceeds the amount due as the Management Fee, the Manager shall be responsible to the Fund for the additional excess (“Other Expenses Exceeding Limit”). If at any time up through and including the Certain date, the Fund’s Management Fee and other expenses for the current day are less than the Allowable Expenses, the differential shall be due to the Manager as payment of cumulative Unaccrued Fees (if any) or as payment for cumulative Other Expenses Exceeding Limit (if any). If cumulative Unaccrued Fees or cumulative Other Expenses Exceeding Limit remain at the Certain Date, these amounts shall be paid to the Manager in the future provided that: (1) no such payment shall be made to the Manager after a two year reimbursement period following the Certain Date; and (2) such payment shall only be made to the extent that it does not result in the Fund’s aggregate expenses exceeding the Expense Limitation. The Manager may voluntarily agree to an additional expense limitation (any such additional expense limitation hereinafter referred to as an “Additional Expense Limitation”), at the same or a different level and for the same or a different period of time beyond the Certain Date (any such additional period being hereinafter referred to an as “Additional Period”) provided, however, that: (1) the calculations and methods of payment shall be as described above; (2) no payment for cumulative Unaccrued Fees or cumulative Other Expenses Exceeding Limit shall be made to the Manager more than two years after the end of the Additional Period; and (3) payment for cumulative Unaccrued Fees or cumulative Other Expenses Exceeding Limit after the expiration of the Additional Period shall only be made to the extent it does not result in the Fund’s aggregate expenses exceeding the Additional Expense Limitation to which the unpaid amounts relate.
Obligation to Notify Change In the event that any of the representations or warranties made/given by a Party ceases to be true or stands changed, the Party who had made such representation or given such warranty shall promptly notify the other of the same.
Expense Limit The Advisor has contractually agreed to waive fees and reimburse expenses to the extent necessary to ensure the Funds’ total annual operating expenses (excluding dividend expenses relating to short sales, interest, taxes, brokerage commissions, other expenditures which are capitalized in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, the cost of “Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses,” if any, other extraordinary expenses not incurred in the ordinary course of business, amounts, if any, payable pursuant to a shareholder servicing plan and amounts, if any, payable pursuant to a plan adopted in accordance with Rule 12b-1 under the 1940 Act) (“Fund Operating Expenses”) do not exceed the contractual limits set forth in Schedule A. The contractual limits on Fund Operating Expenses (“Operating Expense Limit”) set forth in Schedule A below have been adjusted for each class of each Fund to include the effect of Rule 12b-1 fees, shareholder servicing fees and other anticipated class specific expenses, if applicable.
