a.    Indemnity Allocation under the APA.
1)    Seller Claims against any Griffin Indemnified Party. Tenant and Subtenant each hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Griffin and its affiliates, and its and their respective partners, shareholders, members, directors, managers, officers, employees, agents, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Griffin Indemnified Parties”) from and against any damages, losses, taxes, liabilities, claims, judgments, penalties, causes of action, investigations, audits, demands, assessments, adjustment, settlement payments, deficiencies, fines, diminutions in value, costs and expenses (including without limitation reasonable attorney’s fees and court costs) (collectively “Claims”) to the extent arising as a result of or in connection with: (A) any material breach or inaccuracy of any of the representations or warranties made by any Tenant Indemnified Party (as defined herein) in or pursuant to the APAs or in any agreement, instrument, certificate or affidavit delivered by any Tenant Indemnified Party to any Seller in connection therewith or in any Exhibit, Schedule, certificate, or other executed document furnished or to be furnished to any Seller thereunder, (B) any failure by any Tenant Indemnified Party to carry out, perform, satisfy and discharge in any material respect any covenant, agreement, undertaking, liability or obligation of any Tenant Indemnified Party under the APAs, whether prior or subsequent to Closing, or in any instrument, certificate or affidavit delivered by any Tenant Indemnified Party to any Seller at or in connection with the Closings, or (C) any indemnification obligation asserted by any Seller “Indemnified Party” (said capitalized term being defined in the APA) against Griffin Indemnified Parties to the extent arising as a result of or in connection with (including with respect to any breach of) the obligations and/or liabilities of Tenant and/or Subtenant or any of their respective affiliates set forth in either APA (including, without limitation, the indemnity provisions in favor of the Sellers set forth therein as the same have been assigned to Tenant or Subtenant) (any of the foregoing, a “Tenant Indemnification Obligation”).
2)    Griffin hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Tenant, Subtenant and their affiliates, and its and their respective partners, shareholders, members, directors, managers, officers, employees, agents, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Tenant Indemnified Parties”) from and against any Claims to the extent arising as a result of or in connection with: (A) any material breach or inaccuracy of any of the representations or warranties made by any Griffin Indemnified Party in or pursuant to the APAs, whether prior or subsequent to Closing, or in any agreement, instrument, certificate or affidavit delivered by any Griffin Indemnified Party to any Seller in connection therewith or in any Exhibit, Schedule, certificate, or other executed document furnished or to be furnished to any Seller thereunder, (B) any failure by any Griffin Indemnified Party to carry out, perform, satisfy and discharge in any material respect any covenant, agreement, undertaking, liability or obligation of any Griffin Indemnified Party under the APAs or in any instrument, certificate or affidavit delivered by any Griffin Indemnified Party to any Seller at or in connection with the Closing, or (C) any indemnification obligation asserted by any Seller “Indemnified Party” (said capitalized term being defined in the APA) against Tenant Indemnified Parties to the extent arising as a result of or in connection with (including with respect to any breach of) the obligations and/or liabilities of Griffin or any of its affiliates set forth in either APA (including, without limitation, the indemnity provisions in favor of the Sellers set forth therein as the same have been assigned to Griffin) (any of the foregoing, a “Griffin Indemnification Obligation”).

5


3)    The parties hereto acknowledge that the post-Closing indemnification obligations of Sellers under the APAs are supported by a Holdback Amount pursuant to a Holdback Escrow Agreement (said capitalized term being defined in each APA). To the extent that the parties are successful in pursuing a Claim under the APAs, funds from the Seller (whether from the Holdback Amount or otherwise) will first be paid to Griffin, and Griffin will determine in its reasonable discretion whether (a) such funds are required by Tenant and/or the applicable Subtenant for operation of the applicable Facility, in which case such funds will be promptly delivered to Tenant or (b) not required by Tenant and/or the applicable Subtenant for operation of the applicable Facility, but rather payable to Griffin as a result of a diminution of value of the applicable Facility, in which case Griffin shall retain such funds and rent payable under the Master Lease shall be reduced by such amount that shall reflect a reduction in Griffin’s underlying initial capital investment in the applicable Facility on a dollar for dollar basis (but excluding any amount that Griffin actually expends in connection with the cure or repair of the issue underlying such Claim).
4)    Pursuing and Defending Indemnity Claims under the APAs. Griffin shall notify Tenant and Subtenant in writing as promptly as practicable (but in all events within 30 days) of any indemnification obligation which has been or may reasonably be expected to be asserted by any Seller Indemnified Party against any Griffin Indemnified Party, or by any Griffin Indemnified Party against any Seller, under the APAs, and Tenant shall notify Griffin in writing as promptly as practicable (but in all events within 30 days) of any indemnification obligation which has been or may reasonably be expected to be asserted by any Seller Indemnified Party against any Tenant Indemnified Party, or by any Tenant Indemnified Party against any Seller, under the APAs; provided, however, that the failure to give such notice in a timely fashion shall not result in the loss of the rights of, or result in any liability to, the notifying party with respect thereto except to the extent the other party is materially prejudiced by such delay. Subject to the provisos to this sentence, Griffin shall have the right (but not the obligation) to fully assume, commence, control and pursue the prosecution or defense of any such indemnification Claim under the APAs; provided, however, that (A) Tenant and the applicable Subtenant shall have the right to participate in such prosecution or defense at its own cost and expense; (B) Griffin shall not settle any such indemnification Claim for and on behalf of any Tenant Indemnified Party or in respect of any Griffin Indemnification Obligation without the prior written consent of Tenant and the applicable Subtenant (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), and (C) Tenant and/or the applicable Subtenant shall have the right (but not the obligation) to fully assume, commence, control and pursue the prosecution or defense of any such indemnification Claim to the extent relating any Tenant Indemnification Obligation or to Losses (as such term is defined in the APA) exclusively suffered or incurred (or expected to be suffered or incurred) by any Tenant Indemnified Party in respect of any breach of any covenant, agreement or undertaking made by any Seller which is to be performed after the Closing that relates to the operation of a Facility, regardless of whether such Losses also give rise to Claims against any Seller for any breach, inaccuracy, misrepresentation or omission in any of the representations or warranties made by any Seller. Should Griffin decline to assume the prosecution or defense of any indemnification Claim under the APAs, or if, following such assumption, Griffin fails to diligently pursue such prosecution or defense, Tenant or the applicable Subtenant may elect to fully assume, commence, control and pursue the same, provided, however, that with respect to the prosecution or defense of any indemnification Claim properly assumed by Tenant or the applicable Subtenant under this Section, neither Tenant nor a

6


Subtenant shall settle any such indemnification Claim for and on behalf of any Griffin Indemnified Party or in respect of any Tenant Indemnification Obligation without the prior written consent of Griffin (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed). Each of the parties hereto shall cooperate reasonably with and render reasonable assistance to the other in the prosecution or defense of any indemnification Claims under the APA.
5)    Indemnification in respect of Deposit Forfeiture.
(i)    If the Closing does not occur under the APAs as a result of a default by Tenant, Subtenant or any of their affiliates under the APAs and/or this Agreement, including, (a) the failure by Tenant, Subtenant, Manager and their affiliates to execute and deliver all of the Required Closing Documents that each is required to execute and deliver; and (b) as a result of the failure of Seniors and/or its affiliates to consummate the Closing due to a failure to complete the acquisition of some or all of the so-called “Other Portfolio” of properties located in Texas and Georgia (previously referenced in the now-deleted Section 13.1(s) of the APAs referenced in Section 4 of those certain Third Amendments to and Reinstatements of Asset Purchase Agreements dated as of August 4, 2016), and if as a result of such default (A) Seller and/or Griffin terminate(s) the APAs, and (B) Seller receives, or is entitled to receive, the Deposit (or any portion thereof) that Griffin or any of its affiliates has funded under the APAs, or such other amount that Griffin or any of its affiliates has paid or is required to pay Seller pursuant to the APAs (collectively, the “Griffin Forfeited Funds”), then Tenant, Subtenant and, by joinder to this Agreement, Carl Mittendorff, shall indemnify Griffin for and, within thirty (30) days after receipt of written notice from Griffin, pay by wire transfer of immediately available funds to such account(s) designated by Griffin an amount equal to, the Griffin Forfeited Funds, plus the reasonable, actual and documented expenses incurred by Griffin directly in connection with the transaction described in the APAs and this Agreement, plus an amount equal to Griffin’s actual cost, if any, to collect any or all of said amounts. The preceding sentence shall apply to a termination by Seller where Griffin does not complete Closing where such completion is rendered impossible or impractical by the default or failure of Tenant, Subtenant or any of their affiliates.
(ii)    If the Closing does not occur under the APAs as a result of a default by Griffin or any of its affiliates under the APAs and/or this Agreement, including, (a) the failure by Griffin and their affiliates to execute and deliver all of the Required Closing Documents that each is required to execute and deliver; and (b) as a result of the failure of Griffin to consummate the Closing due to the failure of Seniors and/or its affiliates to consummate the acquisition of some or all of the Other Portfolio, and if as a result of such default (A) Seller and/or Tenant terminate(s) the APAs, and (B) Seller receives, or is entitled to receive, the Deposit (or any portion thereof) that Tenant or any of its affiliates has funded under the APAs, or such other amount that Tenant or any of its affiliates has paid Seller pursuant to the APAs (collectively, the “Tenant Forfeited Funds”) Griffin shall indemnify Tenant for and, within thirty (30) days after receipt of written notice from Tenant, pay by wire transfer of immediately available funds to such account(s) designated by Tenant an amount equal to the Tenant Forfeited Funds, plus the reasonable, actual and documented expenses incurred by Seniors, Tenant and/or Subtenant directly in connection with the transaction described in the APA and this Agreement plus an amount equal to Seniors’ actual cost, if any, to collect any or all of said amounts. The preceding sentence shall apply to a termination by Seller where Tenant

7


does not complete Closing where such completion is rendered impossible or impractical by the default or failure of Griffin or any of its affiliates.
(iii)    Seniors has funded under the APAs, those certain First Non-Refundable Portions and Second Non-Refundable Portions (each, as defined in the APAs). If the Closing does not occur under the APAs solely as a result of a failure of the Mold Remediation Condition (as defined in the Rosewood APA) and the Rosewood Mold Remediation Condition (as defined in the Cedar APA) and Seller is entitled to retain and/or receive the First Non-Refundable Portions and the Second Non-Refundable Portions, such forfeited funds shall be borne one hundred percent (100%) by Tenant and Subtenant
b.    Default Indemnification Procedures under this Agreement. With respect to any Claim subject to indemnification hereunder, the party asserting a right to indemnification in respect thereof (the “Indemnified Party”) shall notify the party liable for such indemnification (the “Indemnifying Party”) in writing of such Claim as promptly as practicable (but in all events within 30 days) after the Indemnified Party becomes aware of such Claim; provided, however, that the Indemnified Party’s failure to give such notice to the Indemnifying Party in a timely fashion shall not result in the loss of the Indemnified Party’s rights with respect thereto except to the extent the Indemnifying Party is materially prejudiced by the delay. With respect to any such Claim that is finally determined to be subject to indemnification hereunder, the Indemnifying Party shall satisfy its obligations in respect thereof within thirty (30) days after such final determination.
c.    Interest. If any amount payable by any Indemnifying Party in respect of a Claim that is finally determined to be subject to indemnification hereunder is not paid when due, such unpaid amount shall bear interest at an interest rate equal to a margin of 2% plus the “Prime Rate” as published by the Wall Street Journal (Eastern edition) under its Money Rates column and specified as the base rate on corporate loans at large U.S. commercial banks or, if it no longer publishes such, the rate of interest announced from time to time by Well Fargo Bank as its prime rate, base rate or reference rate.
5.    APA Actions and Termination Elections. Neither Tenant nor Griffin shall cause Buyer to modify, amend, terminate or waive any rights with respect to, the APAs without first obtaining the written consent of the other party. In the event either party elects to terminate the APAs, such party (the “Terminating Party”) shall provide prompt written notice (a “Termination Notice”) of the foregoing to the other party (the “Continuing Party”) upon which the Continuing Party shall have the right to assume the Terminating Party’s partial interest in the APAs by delivering notice of such election (a “Take-Over Notice”) to the Terminating Party within two (2) business days of the Continuing Party’s receipt of the Termination Notice. In such event, (i) the Terminating Party shall assign its partial interest as Buyer under the APAs to the Continuing Party or its designee and (ii) the Continuing Party shall reimburse the Terminating Party for the portion of the Deposits previously paid by the Terminating Party.
6.    Specific APA Provisions:
a.    Pre-Closing Facility Management: Notwithstanding the terms of Section 11.5 of the APAs, neither Tenant nor Subtenant will seek to commence management of the

8


Facilities prior to the Closing or otherwise exercise its rights under said Section without first obtaining the written consent of Griffin, which consent Griffin may withhold in its sole discretion.
b.    Funding of Master Lease Reserves: At the Closings, Tenant will fund into escrow (in accordance with the terms of the Master Lease) such amount as may be required to establish the reserve for Impounds and insurance premiums required thereby.
c.    No Further Assignment of Amendment of APAs: Neither Tenant, Subtenant nor Griffin shall further assign or amend the APAs without first obtaining the written consent of the other party.
d.    Prorations under the APAs. Griffin, Tenant and Subtenant agree that any prorations and credits provided for in the APAs (whether determined at or subsequent to Closing) are payable to or from Subtenant, as Buyer, and all such amounts shall be paid directly to the applicable Subtenant (with respect to sums payable by Seller) and by the applicable Subtenant (with respect to sums payable to Seller).
7.    Miscellaneous.
a.    Entire Agreement; Counterparts; Amendments. This Agreement, the APAs and the Assignment constitute the entire agreement between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter set forth herein, and it supersedes all prior understandings or agreements between the parties. In the event of an inconsistency between the terms of this Agreement and the terms of the APAs or the Assignment, the terms of this Agreement shall control.
