The General Partner The General Partner, on behalf of the Partnership, shall retain one or more Trading Advisors to make all trading decisions for the Partnership, and shall delegate complete trading discretion to such Trading Advisors; provided, however, that the General Partner may override any trading instructions: (i) which the General Partner, in its sole discretion, determines to be in violation of any trading policy of the Partnership, as set forth in subsection (c) below; (ii) to the extent the General Partner believes doing so is necessary for the protection of the Partnership; (iii) to terminate the Futures Interests trading of the Partnership; (iv) to comply with applicable laws or regulations; or (v) as and to the extent necessary, upon the failure of a Trading Advisor to comply with a request to make the necessary amount of funds available to the Partnership, to fund distributions, redemptions, or reapportionments among Trading Advisors or to pay the expenses of the Partnership; and provided, further, that the General Partner may make trading decisions at any time at which a Trading Advisor shall become incapacitated or some other emergency shall arise as a result of which such Trading Advisor shall be unable or unwilling to act and a successor Trading Advisor has not yet been retained. The Partnership shall not enter into any agreement with the General Partner, Xxxxxx Xxxxxxx, or their respective Affiliates (other than a selling agreement as contemplated by Section 6) which has a term of more than one year and which does not provide that it shall be terminable by the Partnership without penalty upon 60 days’ prior written notice by the General Partner; provided, however, that any such agreement may provide for automatic renewal for additional one-year terms unless either the Partnership or the other party to such agreement, upon written notice given not less than 60 days prior to the original termination date or any extended termination date, notifies the other party of its intention not to renew. Subject to the foregoing paragraph, the General Partner is hereby authorized, on behalf of the Partnership, to enter into the form of management agreement described in the Prospectus (each, a “Management Agreement”) with each Trading Advisor described in the Prospectus, and to cause the Partnership to pay to each such Trading Advisor the management and incentive fees provided for in the applicable Management Agreement, as described in the Prospectus. The General Partner is further authorized: (a) to modify (including changing the form and amount of compensation and other arrangements and terms) or terminate any Management Agreement in its sole discretion in accordance with the terms of such Management Agreement and to employ from time to time other Trading Advisors pursuant to management agreements having such terms and conditions and providing for such form and amount of compensation as the General Partner in its sole discretion shall deem to be in the best interests of the Partnership, which terms may include provision for the payment of an incentive fee to a new or replacement Trading Advisor or Advisors which shall be based on any trading profits which shall be earned by such Trading Advisor(s), irrespective of whether such profits shall exceed trading losses incurred by any previous or existing Trading Advisor or Advisors or by the Partnership as a whole; (b) to enter into the Customer Agreements described in the Prospectus (each, a “Customer Agreement”) with the Commodity Brokers described in the Prospectus, and to cause the Partnership to pay to such Commodity Brokers brokerage fees or commissions and Transaction Fees and Costs at the rates provided for in the Customer Agreements and as described in the Prospectus; and (c) to modify (including changing the form and amount of compensation and other arrangements and terms) and terminate the Customer Agreements in its sole discretion in accordance with the terms of such Agreements and to employ from time to time other Commodity Brokers pursuant to customer agreements having such terms and conditions and providing for such form and amount of compensation as the General Partner in its sole discretion shall deem to be in the best interests of the Partnership, provided, however, that the General Partner shall review at least annually the brokerage arrangements with the Partnership to ensure that the brokerage fees or commissions paid to any Commodity Broker are fair, reasonable, and competitive, and represent the best price and services available, taking into consideration: (i) the size of the Partnership; (ii) the Futures Interests trading activity; (iii) the services provided by the Commodity Broker, the General Partner or any Affiliate thereof to the Partnership; (iv) the cost incurred by the Commodity Broker, the General Partner or any Affiliate thereof in organizing and operating the Partnership and offering Units; (v) the overall costs to the Partnership; (vi) any excess interest and compensating balance benefits to the Commodity Broker from assets held thereby; and (vii) if the General Partner does not receive any direct compensation from the Partnership for its services as General Partner, the risks incurred by the General Partner as such. The General Partner may subdivide or combine Units in its discretion, provided that no such subdivision or combination shall affect the Net Asset Value of any Limited Partner’s interest in the Partnership.
Outside Activities of the General Partner The General Partner shall not directly or indirectly enter into or conduct any business, other than in connection with, (a) the ownership, acquisition and disposition of Partnership Interests, (b) the management of the business and affairs of the Partnership, (c) the operation of the General Partner as a reporting company with a class (or classes) of securities registered under the Exchange Act, (d) its operations as a REIT, (e) the offering, sale, syndication, private placement or public offering of stock, bonds, securities or other interests, (f) financing or refinancing of any type related to the Partnership or its assets or activities, and (g) such activities as are incidental thereto; provided, however, that, except as otherwise provided herein, any funds raised by the General Partner pursuant to the preceding clauses (e) and (f) shall be made available to the Partnership, whether as Capital Contributions, loans or otherwise, as appropriate, and, provided, further that the General Partner may, in its sole and absolute discretion, from time to time hold or acquire assets in its own name or otherwise other than through the Partnership so long as the General Partner takes commercially reasonable measures to ensure that the economic benefits and burdens of such Property are otherwise vested in the Partnership, through assignment, mortgage loan or otherwise or, if it is not commercially reasonable to vest such economic interests in the Partnership, the Partners shall negotiate in good faith to amend this Agreement, including, without limitation, the definition of “Adjustment Factor,” to reflect such activities and the direct ownership of assets by the General Partner. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to prohibit the General Partner from executing guarantees of Partnership debt. The General Partner and all Disregarded Entities with respect to the General Partner, taken as a group, shall not own any assets or take title to assets (other than temporarily in connection with an acquisition prior to contributing such assets to the Partnership) other than (i) interests in Disregarded Entities with respect to the General Partner, (ii) Partnership Interests as the General Partner, (iii) an interest (not to exceed 1% of capital and profits) in any Subsidiary of the Partnership that the General Partner holds to maintain such Subsidiary’s status as a partnership for Federal income tax purposes or otherwise, and (iv) such cash and cash equivalents, bank accounts or similar instruments or accounts as such group deems reasonably necessary, taking into account Section 7.1.D hereof and the requirements necessary for the General Partner to qualify as a REIT and for the General Partner to carry out its responsibilities contemplated under this Agreement and the Charter. Any Limited Partner Interests acquired by the General Partner, whether pursuant to the exercise by a Limited Partner of its right to Redemption, or otherwise, shall be automatically converted into a General Partner Interest comprised of an identical number of Partnership Units with the same terms as the class or series so acquired. Any Affiliates of the General Partner may acquire Limited Partner Interests and shall, except as expressly provided in this Agreement, be entitled to exercise all rights of a Limited Partner relating to such Limited Partner Interests.
Successor General Partner Upon the occurrence of an event giving rise to a Withdrawal of a General Partner, any remaining General Partner, or, if there be no remaining General Partner, the Withdrawing General Partner or its legal representative, shall promptly notify the Special Limited Partner of such Withdrawal (the "Withdrawal Notice"). Whether or not the Withdrawal Notice shall have been sent as provided herein, the Special Limited Partner shall have the right to become a successor General Partner (and to become the successor managing General Partner if the Withdrawing General Partner was previously the managing General Partner). In order to effectuate the provisions of this Section 13.4 and the continuance of the Partnership, the Withdrawal of a General Partner shall not be effective until the expiration of 120 days from the date on which occurred the event giving rise to the Withdrawal, unless the Special Limited Partner shall have elected to become a successor General Partner as provided herein prior to expiration of such 120-day period, whereupon the Withdrawal of the General Partner shall be deemed effective upon the notification of all the other Partners by the Special Limited Partner of such election.
Ownership of the General Partner The Partnership owns a 100% membership interest in the General Partner; such membership interest has been duly authorized and validly issued in accordance with the limited liability company agreement of the General Partner (the “GP LLC Agreement”) and is fully paid (to the extent required by the GP LLC Agreement) and nonassessable (except as such nonassessability may be affected by matters described in Sections 18-303, 18-607 and 18-804 of the Delaware LLC Act); and the Partnership owns such membership interest free and clear of all Liens, other than those created by or arising under the Delaware LLC Act, the GP LLC Agreement or the Credit Facility.
Authority of the General Partner The General Partner shall have the sole and exclusive right to manage the affairs of the Partnership and shall have all of the rights and powers that may be possessed by general partners under the Act. If two or more Persons are serving as General Partners, decisions regarding the management of the Partnership and its business and affairs shall be made by the consent of a majority in number of the General Partners then serving. The rights and powers that the General Partner may exercise include, but are not limited to, the following:
Liability of the General Partner (a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement, the General Partner shall not be liable for monetary damages to the Partnership or any Partners for losses sustained or liabilities incurred as a result of errors in judgment or of any act or omission if the General Partner acted in good faith. The General Partner shall not be in breach of any duty that the General Partner may owe to the Limited Partners or the Partnership or any other Persons under this Agreement or of any duty stated or implied by law or equity provided the General Partner, acting in good faith, abides by the terms of this Agreement.
Transfer of the General Partner’s General Partner Interest (a) Subject to Section 4.6(c) below, prior to June 30, 2015, the General Partner shall not transfer all or any part of its General Partner Interest (represented by General Partner Units) to a Person unless such transfer (i) has been approved by the prior written consent or vote of the holders of at least a majority of the Outstanding Common Units (excluding Common Units held by the General Partner and its Affiliates) or (ii) is of all, but not less than all, of its General Partner Interest to (A) an Affiliate of the General Partner (other than an individual) or (B) another Person (other than an individual) in connection with the merger or consolidation of the General Partner with or into such other Person or the transfer by the General Partner of all or substantially all of its assets to such other Person.
Withdrawal of the General Partner (a) The General Partner shall be deemed to have withdrawn from the Partnership upon the occurrence of any one of the following events (each such event herein referred to as an “Event of Withdrawal”);
Removal of the General Partner The General Partner may be removed if such removal is approved by the Unitholders holding at least 66 2/3% of the Outstanding Units (including Units held by the General Partner and its Affiliates) voting as a single class. Any such action by such holders for removal of the General Partner must also provide for the election of a successor General Partner by the Unitholders holding a majority of the outstanding Common Units voting as a class and Unitholders holding a majority of the outstanding Subordinated Units (if any Subordinated Units are then Outstanding) voting as a class (including, in each case, Units held by the General Partner and its Affiliates). Such removal shall be effective immediately following the admission of a successor General Partner pursuant to Section 10.2. The removal of the General Partner shall also automatically constitute the removal of the General Partner as general partner or managing member, to the extent applicable, of the other Group Members of which the General Partner is a general partner or a managing member. If a Person is elected as a successor General Partner in accordance with the terms of this Section 11.2, such Person shall, upon admission pursuant to Section 10.2, automatically become a successor general partner or managing member, to the extent applicable, of the other Group Members of which the General Partner is a general partner or a managing member. The right of the holders of Outstanding Units to remove the General Partner shall not exist or be exercised unless the Partnership has received an opinion opining as to the matters covered by a Withdrawal Opinion of Counsel. Any successor General Partner elected in accordance with the terms of this Section 11.2 shall be subject to the provisions of Section 10.2.
